As long as the best qualified among our people shirk their
obligations as citizens, leave government to politicians and graft
ers, just so long will we be misgoverned. As long as business
men, farmers and producers let the politician do it, instead of do-j
ing it themselves, will they reap the reward of their negligence.

passage of beneficial legislation requires organization and con
tinuous work, just as much as socialism and Townleyism and
other isms. As long as we are too little interested in public wel
fare to render the service to the community, state and nation that
citizenship demands, just so long will we have bad government.
Good government requires organization as much as freak government.
