Despite the contention of the Hoover propagandists,
to the contrary, notwithstanding, the progress of the
race by Governor Frank O. Lowden for the republican
presidential nomination at the oncoming national conven­
tion to be held in Kansas City in June is entirely satisfac­
tory to his backers and campaign managers, says National
Farm News.
Optimism reigns supreme in the Lowden camp fol­
lowing his sensational victory in Illinois, when the repub­
lican state convention instructed its entire delegation—
61 strong, to vote for Frank O. Lowden at Kansas City.
“Recognition of the farm question is going to be the
underlying factor in the coming 1928 campaign,’’ in the
opinion of Rep. L. J. Dickinson of Iowra. “In my judg­
ment,” he declared last week, “this is resulting in a large
number of uninstructed delegates from various states,
with the purpose of being prepared to meet the situation
that will confront the convention.”
“It is conceded,” he continued, “that A1 Smith, with
a national reputation as the friend of the common man,
is going to be the democratic nominee. The republican
nomination, therefore, must be made with a view of meet­
ing this situation. I am still convinced that Governor
Lowden is the outstanding national figure to meet the
situation as far as the republican party is concerned.”

Mail Order Competition
In spite of warnings and pleadings by the press and
safety organizations, the unending slaughter of human
beings in highway accidents shows no indication of being
Figures compiled by the American Road Builders’
association, made public recently, show that during the
year 1927 in the United States there were 26,818 killed
and 798,700 seriously injured on the streets and highways
of the country.
The number killed was greater than that enrolled in
the entire regular army of the United States in 1897.
Suppose that during that year every officer and soldier
had been killed. The tragedy would have shocked the
nation. Yet little attention is paid to an even greater
tragedy in 1927. Suppose that every man, woman and
child in the city of Boston were either killed or seriously
injured. It would be a less disaster than befell the coun­
try as a whole from highway accidents alone last year,
and, so far as can be judged, less than will occur during
1928 and each year in the future.
While many accidents are seemingly unavoidable,
the great majority of them are due to plain carelessness
or foolhardiness. And it seems impossible to keep a fool
away from a steering wheel.

Over at Sandy last wreek a meeting of several school
boards was held for the purpose of discussing matters of
vital importance to all school directors and districts. It
is a fine idea, and one that should be carried out by the
school boards throughout the county. As a rule the mem­
bers of the boards selected to manage the schools are
chosen without much consideration and it often happens
that they know7 little about the management of the insti­
tutions under their direction.
A school for school boards probably would not be
popular w'ith the average member, but get-togther meet­
ings such as that held at Sandy certainly w7ould do no
damage and would be a great benefit to those who are
really interested in fulfilling the duties of their office in
the best pssible manner.
