Is suffrage going to mean less marriage and more public ca
reers' is it going to mean more opportunities to unmarried women
only? Are married women with homes and families going to refuse
to sacrifice those interests and leave the field open to the young
women the unexperienced, unmarried women? First summary of
results would indicate that this is so in the ratio of 2 to 1 Of
three women who have just assumed important public offices two
are single and one is married. The misses are Miss Florence Allen,
elected Judge of common pleas court at Cleveland. O, and Miss Mary
K. Davey. elected prosecutor of Hocking county O The married
woman is Mrs. Lillian Brownleo of Washington. Pa. who is mayor
One of the magazines that de

Dullness methods by the every
day man -the biy business fel
I w doesn't need it has been
dicuasing printer's ink and its
uses. Among other things we
were interested in the following
which we extract for the benefit
of our readers:
"The value of the rural press
is not realized by one farmer in
a hundred. By this I mean that
the farmer is slow to take ad
vantage of the profits which the
publicity of the press place at
his command, in the disposal of
blooded stock, the exchange of
animals and the disposal of seed
grains There is no reason why
the farmer should not avail him
self of the advertising columnsof
the paper as well as the village
merchant. By using printer's
ink there are many instances
vhere the products of the farm
might be sold without the loss
of time incidental to taking the
sdtne to market and there dis
pose of it at a price named by
the other fellow."
And here is another statement
chat is worth thinking over:
Order your Prunes now for Prune
Stars That Shine
Should tonight be clear and
Jupiter Pluvius condescends to
keep his clouds out of the way
for a time at least it will be pos
sible to see and enjoy the sight
if an evening star or two.
According to calendar Venus
md Mars are evening stars at
present and will continue so for
several months. Venus will
twinkle every evening until
April 22 whether we see her or
not and after that she will be
visible to the early morning ri
jr. Mars will stick around eve
ry evening until June "29th and
the rest of the year prefers t
scintillate in the morning.
Jupiter is a morning star right
iow, but from Match 4 and up
to September 22 will do duty on
the evening side.
Saturn is doing his glittering
early in the morning now but af
ter March 12 when the sun be
gins to get up too early to suit
him he changes to an evening
star. He likes the !on summer
nveninjrs best evidently for when
September 21 rolls around he
goes back to early morning hour
Remember Prune week.
Pol. F. W. Galbralth, Jr., New Na
tional Commander, In Bpeaking of the
American Legion org aniation in the
smaller towns and the rural communi
ties lias the following to say:
"Nowhere is the Legion stronger
than in such places. The local Legion
post is fast becoming the dominant
factor in the life of the smaller com
munities. It is a social center. It is
a public forum where the principal is
sues of the day arc discussed and
threshed out. It is the rallying point
of loyal sentiment.
Ex-service men in the rural com
munities, too. seem to have discover
ed there are practical advantages to
Legion membership, and it is our wish
that ALL of them sec it so.
The Legion members la the smai
let communities have been lirst to
rind out the service the Legion ex
tends to its members thru its Sen ice
Division at the national headquarters,
where claims of till varieties are ad
justed. In the year Just none by the
Legion obtained the settlement of
claims in favor of ex-service ineii total
ing more t ban L'. 000,000 in cash -and
the majority of these claims originat
ed in rural oommunlttees.
The Legion, when it puts its com
pensation bill before Congress, shw to
It that a land settlement clause was
contained therein. It saw to il that
provision was made whereby an ex
service man living on a farm could
borrow money from his government
on easy terms for the Improvement of
I farms, it saw to it that I he man in
the small t own had t he privilege of
putting his money in a home.
In the early days of the Legion, and
a great universal organization of those
who served our country in war was an
idea rat her t ban a .fact. There were
many who said it could never be done.
Whyr we asked. Well, they told us,
ItoW will you ever get the North and
Soul h, estranged as those seel ions are
on political issues, together? How
will you get the capitalist and the la
borer, the fanner and the city man,
the Socialist, the Republican, the
Democrat, the Catholic and t.he Pro
test en t how will you ever get them
all to agree on anything?
It was pointed out that we were all
together in the war. Whrn America
was lighting abroad and working at
home in 1011 and litis there was DO in
ternal dissension not petty disagree-
"Ah, well,'" said the doubters, "hut
then we were at war. A declara
tion of war ends discussion-,. The
Same of patriotism that war kindles
purges the' soul and casts out narrow
ness. The war is over. The tire is
out. Your aim is commendable but

ceived the Legion idea believed that
