'HAVE THE MIND OP CHRIST: Let this mind be In you, which
was also In Christ Jesus. Let nothing be done through strife or Vain
glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than

them to vote for it. And, on the other hand, if certain indi-i
viduala or organizations want a law which the legislature'
fails i to pass' they condemn the lawmakers . although the
latter may have received an overwhelming number of protests
against it. . - '
Against this unmerited and .general condemnation the
legislature is powerless. It is a composite body which meets
for a few weeks and then disbands. It cannot reply. It
cannot combat the slurs and unfair criticisms hurled against
it. It can neither defend nor commend its members for their
individual or session work.? And so it is that practically all
the idle slurs and ridicule urged against the law-making body
of the state is accepted at face value by the average citizen
who does not take the time to study the individual record
of the legislators. ,:.
And generally those who rail longest and loudest against
the laws and lawmakers offer neither helpful suggestions nor
give time or ef fort , to .the public good. Often they are disap
pointed over the failure of some selfish scheme to become
law.- Constructive' criticism stimulates progress, destructive
criticism retards or renders it impossible.
