1 "ABOVE POWEK AND WEALTH"
tThej following remarkable editorial for a secular news
paper appeared in a recent number of the Los Angeles Times :
"When Solomcm chose wisdom above power and wealth,
he not only struck the key to what he had apparently re
nounced, but he also recognized , the expansion of conscious
ness as the business of life.
If ycu gave a man a city block it would be no great
thing to do for him because a chance fever or a stray bullet
raiht take him-away from' it, but if you said something to
Lka that made him spiritually aware of himself, you would
endow, him with..a. treasure. froA.which. he.could.never be
separated. If you should "give a man a thousand dollars,
he could .spend it in no time, but if you gave him a book that
made him think more and more and made him happier for it.
you would bestow, upon him: wealth that could never be dissi
pated. i .; ., f 7i .' 'y ; . ..; -r . x
The word of the spirit endures and Drevaila when all other
literature fades as if written upon sand and the givers -of
spiritual laws are remembered when all others are forgotten.

of any bookv Never mind what is said. Pay no attention
to statements of facts or seeming truth! There is nothing
conclusive or even important about any utterance. Only one

pure emotions commingle in-clear stream with the rare

That this realm celestial is not always apparent to our
three-dimensional world, does not argue that the world is not
limitless and that we are not to proceed. It is a challenge
only to the self-proscribed and to the finite of perception.
Want is an illusion which spurs us on until we are fed and
clothed by the reality; death is the somber mask wnicn
knowledge tears from the laughing eyes of life.

ot a mlUion; people is too many to
come into the United States in a
year of the kind that do come,
largely. It would be a good
many, even if there could be the
most carefnl selection. And there
should be careful selection, un
der the permanent immigration
law; as both to country and race
and as to qualifications for be
coming good and useful citizens
of the United States'.
The appeal of the Salem school
physician shonld be heeded. The
way to stamp out contagious dis
eases is to report all cases.
Some one suggests that it might
be a good Idea to . pass the cost
of old wars on to posterity so
that posterity can't finance any
present fiscal year, July 1 to Jan
uary 31, the goTernment expen
ditures were $2,069,154,000. At
this rate the expenditures for the
government for the entire fiscal
year will be considerably less
than the esUmates recently made.
H. .G. WeUg says George Wash
ington was indolent But he was
sufficiently industrious to wallop
the Hessian troops in the pay of
the country in which Mr. Wells
holds his citizenship.
Jo Davidson, the distinguished
American sculptor, notes a "tre
mendous new enthusiasm for art
throughout France." Not aU ot
"war's reactions" evidently are
i Lady Rhondda's application for
admission to the. house of lords
and the special committee's ap
proval apparently have by no
roenas settled the question. The
lords yield their prerogatives with
a . struggle, but when progress
really insists then they do yield.

with' 32,420 enrolled . students it
Is the largest university in the
world is corrected by the Unl
versity of - CalifornJawhicb. an
nounces 43,266 students. Happily
the quality as well as the quan
tity of both the Atlantic and the
Pacific institutions is excellent.
"An agreeing mind' says Sen
ator George Wharton Pepper, "Is
one of God's greatest blessings."
ItiWould.be. In the nature of; a
novelty to have a larger propor

minds - in the United- States senate.-.
TROTZKYS FULL FED ARMY.
CordeU Hull, national Demo
cratic chairman, does not agree
apparently with James Cox, who
led the Democratic party to Igno
minious defeat in 1920. Mr. Cor
deU says the Democratic party of
today "looks forward and not
backward. They keep pace with
every phase of our national prog
ress -and with changing circum
stances.' On the other hand.
Mr. Cox declared about the same
time that "we stand just where
we stood at the close ot the cam
paign In November, 1920." You
pay your money and take yoar
choice or take St without pay
ing or "take it or leave it."

$98,518,000 below December,
1921. and a-reduction ot $827,

A bill has passed, the house ex
tending the restricted immigra
tion law one year from June 30
next. This 3 per cent propo
sition was adopted as a tempor
ary measure. The basis for cal
culation, as most Statesman read
ers, know, is the number of na
tionals of a given country resi
dent in the United States accord
ing to the 1910 census. The idea
is to receive 3 per cent of the
respective totals annually. The
limit for 12 months Is 355,000.
This number is not likely to be
reached this year; the possible
German Immigration will likely
fall far short. But - during the
first eight months 192,000 Im
migrants came In, under the law.
Counting those who will come
over the international boundaries
of Canada, and Mexico, by right
and illegally, there is little doubt
but the full 335,000 will be re
ceived Into the country during
the 12 months period ending Jane
30, 1923, If (he senate shall pass
the houso billwhich, of course,
it will there will be another year
for the enacting of a permanent
law on immigration. Every think
ing American realizes that this is
one of the most important of our
national problems. , It Is the duty
of congress,' however, to take it
up and settle it and two years is
. While millions of Russians
starve, Leon Trotzky, the war
minister, stuffed with proteids
and vitamines in the Red Square
of the Kremlin reviews the well
fed Moscow garrison on the fourth
anniversary of the Red army. He
returns snappily the salutes of
veteran officers who served Rus
sia in real battles when Trotzky
was a hungry pamphleteer among
the comrades In Manhattan.. At
Trotzky's elbow as the soldiers
pass are such notables as Bela
Kun, who had his Red heyday in
Hungary, and the precious Bill
Haywood. The Kremlin towers,
from which Napoleon looked
down on burning Moscow, have
never been the background of a
military scene more fantastic.
The Red army, such as it is,
may be reckoned the solidest
achievement of Lenine and Trotz
ky. Industry is wrecked, the
economic structure has been
smashed to smithereens, produc
tion has ceased, crops are not
raised; but in numbers, disci
pline and equipment the army has
been strengthened year by year.

would have a hard- time keeping

'Occasionally "a shitf was cap
