such distinguished citizens as President Lowell of Harvard uni

adopted upon all the points upon which there is agreement and
that only the disputed portions, such as Article X be left to a

THE BEST DEFENSE
As expected, the Portland Oregonian rushes to the defense of
General Leonard Wood's million dollar slush fund, attributing
ulterior motives to critics and justifying large expenditures in
primary campaigns, declaring that "it costs money and" a great
deal of it, to reach the voters of a single state. It costs 48 times
as much in all the states."
Continuing the Oregonian holds that campaign funds should
not be limited. "The question as to what is too much money, and
what is just enough money," says the Oregonian, "to be used
in a political campaign may not be determined by any fixed rule."
Then why has it been found necessary to limit campaign" ex
penditures? Why have most of the states adopted a limit and
why have we a federal limitation? If a limit is necessary in
elections, is it not equally necessary in primaries?
The Oregonian admits the need of publicity rezardinir con
tributors but overlooks the fact that the best defense of his
political purity General Wood could make would be to publish the
list of the contributors to his campaign fund, not after the cam
paign is over, but as they are made, so the people can know just
how much money is being spent to influence their votes and know
who is putting it up. They will draw their own conclusions as

'Certainly not!" Mr. Crow exploded.
"Certainly not!'- And he glared at the

"You're a stranger in these parts, I

more to Major Monkey. "No doubt
you've been used to eating different

That's all I ask of you."

Pneumonia attacks the air cells
of the lung3. An inflammation

the blood causes the heart to

a hose increases the water pres

during this disease, the physician
watches the overburdened heart
After recovery the lungs are
filled with a mass of wreckage
the debris of the battle which
must be gotten rid of by a process
known as resolution. Frequently,
inflamed spots remain, congestion
persists, cough hangs on, and the
least exposure brings on a cold
that is hard to get rid of. If
neglected, such damaged air pas
sages may easily develop Benous
disease of the lungs.
Such cases should always con

be made- to see that nature is

Nightly applications of Vick's
VapoRub will aid nature in this
