ca has passed. tTe stage 'vwhere his
propaganda is acceptable and
desirable. His platform is pdre
ly socialistic. Now that - word
does not 'frighten any .more .bet
cause social ism ..can mean . any
thing. iThe- only reason' his plat
form Js i so designated is ..because
It is not republican, -r
. Hs platform .'provldes Jtor the
public ownership of railroads.' Teh
years ago that was a' live issue)
but certainly it' Is anything but
alive now. ; The. platform. further
declares ror public ownership of
water powers and the development
of all these. . It shows plainly ths
influence of soviet. Huss!a oa this
man's mind. , ,;V V
." The La .Follette platform de
clares its purpose to gire 'congress
authority "by re-enacting a statute
to make it effective over a Judic
ial . Veto.'t . In other words. La
Follette and his followers declare
a purpose to destroy the constitu
tion, since that , would be constl
t ational -If correra f 'li-tt-w.s
Constitutional. The constitution
would be taken from the custody
of the people, where It now- re
poses, and be delivered to congress
to be amended or destroyed at the
uncontrolled, will of congress.
La f Follette knew when te
drafted this socialistic platform
and sent it to the Wisconsin-delegation,'
that U would not be, adopt
ed by the resolutions committee or
approved by the republican Nation
al convention, lie takes that ac
tion, more : emphatically j to draw
the Issue.' between himself and
president Coolidge and the repub
lican party. . j
As the campaign 5 progresses it
will daily .become more apparent
that the issue will be essentially
between La Foll&tte and socialism
on one hand and .Coolidge and
sound, safe Americanism on the
other hand. " r "
The' impending menace in this
campaign Is aperpetuatlon and a
strengthening of, the' alliance be
tween the' La Foliette group and
the democratic party the alliance
that was so conspicuous. In the re
cent session of congress with La
Follette dictating to the demo
cratic organization and Impressing
upon It his socialistic program..
CAN WIN
There are th6se who have been
saying that', the republican's could
not win the election. The Ore
gon Statesman at the beginning
of the campaign wants to declare
its. conviction that the republicans
can win, and further that they will
win. ; a -
That they can win is apparent
from' the platform' and the candi
dates, f That they will wift is based
on -the prediction ' that the' cam
paign will be educational and con
structive. The platform Is essen
tially constructive and the candi
dates embody, the spirit . of the
platform. . ; i l -
America is constructive. It
does not like to have things torn
down. It is not curiohs in ; the
matter of seeing whether people
ire vulnerable or not. Americans
do not like detectives because they
betray the trust hey hate secured.
The same, is true in these investi
gations. . Americans are not for
the Investigations because clearly
there- has been a conspiracy to
comb the under-world and Had tb9
witnesses that would testify to de
structions "l - '' . V.' 'n ' bir''- i
The? repabllcans n their plat
form demand "the punishment of
wrongdoers f rem every party. The
democratic 'platform . will come
along, and attempt to destroy the
confidence in public men, but that
will, not appeal to the people. -
The republican , platform f and
candidates are. such that they will
all appeal to the forward looking
and constructive American voters.
The republicans can and, will -win.
AN EPITAPH

Mrs.'Monroe has a contest every
month. ; In the month 'of May It
was-for women to write their own
epitaphs. . Among . the many stib-:
mitted the .following was selected
which, will appear to the public as
being entirely human, yet poetic:
Her e lies the body of a .woman
Who was ugly. tal and thin, ,. . -
She was-also -eix1SuiHan, - -So

But. we hoped, the portals opened
As her spirit took its flight.

Come and sit thou on my right.'
BUTLER'S , MISTAKE
William M. Butler of Massa
chusetts Is a new man in politics,
and we'r mast not make his, mis
takes too. glaring. . He will learn.
He . made . a great mistake . in the
nomination of a candidate for the
vice presidency but It was a mis
take of a novice, . The seasoned
politician would not have done
that. However. Butler will learn,
and it is the business of all re
publicans to help him rather than
hinder him. The chairman of the
national committee Is entitled to
the support of the party organisa
tions all over the country, as well
as the voters.

1 . ; Why I Wro'e ,
I tTHE STORY OF; MAN'S j
j L' " MIND" j
j . !By GEORGE HUMPHREY j
' A Certain gooct lady ot, my ac
quaintance had invited me tp din
ner, ..During the course of an ex
cellent meal my hostess remarked
that she had been "thinking pros
perity" today, and on my inquiry
what" that meant, replied that I
ought to know. -for. was I not a
psychologist ? Still " : more puz
zled, I asked further what it had
to do with psychology. ' -
"Why," was the answer, "we
have been taking a course in prac
tical psychology. At a certain
time In the day, about noon, a
great deal of money is changing
hands. If one thinks prosperity
at that time, ones thought-waves
divert some of that money in ones
direction. . Some of us have al
ready had considerable success!"
After this revelation I felt as
though I had definitely lost caste
by my Ignorance. But on the way
home it occurred to ane that It
was time someone put before the
general public the real science of
psychology, as an antidote to this
kindot thing. The result was the
Story of Man's Mind," which is
intended to give the point of view
of the professional, -scientific psy
chologist as opposed to the doughy
uplift" charlatanry that fills so
many lecture -halls in our larger
cities. Certainly, judging by the
success or the book, I must have
been thinking "prosperity" when
I , wrote It. v

This is a New Jersey buzard boring a well in the middle
of the Tight and farmer Jones nose. Amos is always ready
to do his brace and bit, but "the sight of him," as Barrie
Payne says, "augurs ill for tender noses." (You guessed it
one of Amos' friends once presented his Bill to Barrie, giving
him a good dose of his last name.) ' "
"Bzz-zz," sings kittle Quito, in his own quaint way.
"Bzz-zz," snores Farmer Jones. . Suddenly- something hap
pened Amos struck oil, and Jones struck Amos. The result
was quite an alteration fn the shape of today's Snoppyquop.
"What did you have against me, you brute!" cried the poor
little buzzard as he picked himself up and stood pn the bridge
of Farmer Jones' nose (yes; at midnight.) ,
"Only my hand," laughed the farmer, "you nearly bored
me to death." - . "
