Politicians in the great cities will

Not in years, if ever, has there
been a political situation so com
plicated as that which exists this

students are perplexed to a point
where even the strong partisans
amongst them freely admit they do
not know what will happen in No

ally publish news agreeable to their
cause, as there is a sufficient amount
of this kind of news which is quite
truthful to satisfy the needs of any

likely to give much mora of an indi

ABOUT ONE ANGEL OF THE
LA FOLLETTE CAMPAIGN".
ITHEN Barton K. Wheeler, after
' predicting the election of John
W. Davis as President in an inter
view published in the Washington
Times, immediately following the
Madison Square Garden convention,
suddenly decided to accept the vice
presidential nomination with La Fol
lette, it was stated on his behalf that
his decision came as the result of
pressure from Frank A. Vanderlip.
financier and chief of the huge spy
agency which acted as an adjunct of
the Walsh and Wheeler committees
in the campaign to "get something
onH the P.epubiican national adminis
tration last spring.
Mr. Vanderiip is evidently one of
the main props and pillars, financial
ly, at least of the La Follette cam
paign. It is therefore interesting to
note what Senator La Follette', nnh-
lication. La Folette's Magazine, said j
of this same Frank A. Vanderlip dur
ing the World war.
In La Follette 's Magazine for April,
1?. appears the following:
"Hon. William Denman, formerly
chairman of the shipping board, in
testimony before the Senate Commit
tee on Commerce, tore aside the veil
and showed that the oniy difference
between him and General Goehtals
arose out of the hogjrishnens of the
Vanderlip group, who desired to make
great and unconscionable profits out
of the government. General Goe th
ai", who was at the head of the Em
ergency Fleet corporation, was will
ing that the Vanderlip group should
have $12,000,000 of profit for super
vising $125,000,000 worth of work.
The testimony shows that the Hog
island promoters first demanded $20,
000.000, later they were willing to ac
cept $12,000,000 and finally they have
bten hammered down to $10,000,000,
wnich is pretty steep compensation
for two year active service of a half

lf'lfc, iue of La Follette 's alagasine.
Senator I -a Fo''ette paid bis retpecta ,
to Mr. Vander'ip. hi- present politi '
eal ''buddy,' rernible for La Fol
ic tte's running irate being on the
ticket, la FoVif tte describes bis
nrhent backer, Vanderlip, in that edi
torial a "a plain American war hog.
wallowing in ar profits at the ex
pense of the overburdened taxpayers
of the country." In this editorial
m Follette quotes the New York Am
erican a? charging that the Vander
lip group, known aa the American
Internationa! Corporation, made a
contract with the government where
by the government was to advance
the money to build the Hog Island
r'ant and give the Vanderlip corpor
at'on a profit of six million dollars,
and that the Vanderlip group then
sub.et t contract to a construction
company ?nd pocketed the six mill
ions without using a dollar of (heir
own r oi.ey, their time or their credit.
Ai'ornfy General Daugherty earn
ed the inmity of powerful war profit
eers of the Vanderlip type by insti
tuting prosecutions in flagrant cases
where there seemed to be a possibil
ity of getting back some of the mon
ey unfairly taken from the federal
treasury. Whereupon Mr. Vanderlip
apsailed the memory of the late Pres
ident Harding and proceeded to fin
ance a spy bureau for the manufac
ture of the type of "evidence" pro
duced before the Wheeler committee,
and to support certain expensive pub
licity activities in Washington and
elsewhere in behalf of Wheeler and
his associates. The methods used
in manufacturing the George Remus
"testimony" as revealed by him in a
recent confession that he perjured
himself before the Wheeler commit
tee as a star witness against Attorney
General Daugherty, were typical of
others used during that inqusition.
And now La Follette and Wheeler
are in bed, politcially, with the man
La Follette's Magaxine accused dur
ing the war of unconscionable profit
eering. Vanderlip is responsible for
the presence of Wheeler on the La
Follette ticket. Why is Mr. Vanderlip
backing the La Follette-Wheeler tick
et? Why was his pressure responsi
ble for the make-up of the ticket?
We know that Mr. Vanderlip's past
performances in connection with the
government were through the col
umns of La Follette's Magazine. What
are Mr. Vanderlip's expectations in
case his investment in Senate com
mittee testimony and in the La Follette-Wheeler
campaign turn out
Without explaining how the magic
trick is done. Senator La Follette,
during the present campaign, has
charged that the predatory interests
elect our Presidents and Congress
and dictated the appointment of
judges to the federal bench. Can the
Vanderlip system, by any chance, be
an example of the method used by
predatory interests to procure the
election of a President and Vice

SOME state will receive with par

the National Weekly, to the state
which records the largest propor

world may not smile at our political
apathy the trophy is not offered as a
prize, but rather as a tangible recog
nition of concentrated good citizen

is offered to stir slumbering public
conscience and stimulate voters to
duty on election day. No public

Many platitudes have been written
on the duty of voting. But the sub
ject can not be dwelt upon too often.
The very safety of American institu

governed in the manner in which
they wish to be governed. The vote
is all important, but not less import
ant is the necessity for an intelligent
vote, a proper comprehension of the
basic character of American free
In the last twenty years we have
been slipping rapidly from the
thought and purpose of those who
founded this nation. We seem to
have lost sight of the fact that Am

to the establishing of the Republic
under the Constitution no country in
the world was in such a pitiable con
dition as was this, the land we love
and in which we prosper.

Mr. Nestle is Vice President of the
Wholesale Beauty Trade Association
Recently he appeared before an aud

boldly announced that we are on the
way to evolve a race of bearded wo

longer on the scene to bid for ser

tomorrow," warned the beauty trade
man while his feminine listeners
shivered at the thought of the future.

sures us, that every human being is
a chemical laboratory that is con
stantly manufacturing hair, and if
the hair is not permitted to grow on
the head then it will grow on the

are told, who never cut their hair

This may be sound reasoning, but
it would appear that while Mr. Nestle

LA FOLLETTE AND SOCIALISM.
A RECENT writer in the Saturday
Evening Post points out that Karl
Marx, who wrote the turgid and
wordy economic fallacies on which
Socialism is based, never worked a
day in his life. He could not make
use of hands or brain to give him a
living, and yet he presumed to buPd
i an ideal economic machine that woald
enable everybody to get a just share
of food, clothing, shelter and luxur
ies necessary to maintain life and
happiness. Never has one of his the
ories proved practical when put to
Bob La Follette believes in the the
ories of Marx. All followers of Marx
in the United Stafces who support the
Socialist ticket, will vote for La Fol
Utte. He, too, has no capacity as a
business builder of any sort, and yet
like his slothful teacher, he presumes
to tell the people of this country that
he will be able to so change the bus
iness life of the nation as to bless
everybody. In the next breath he
mentions lower freight rates which
would reduce the revenue of the
railroads, and higher wages for rail
road employes, which would increase
railroad expenses. Nobody but an
economic idiot, or a knave, would be
guilty of enthusiastically advocating
plans of bankruptcy and ruin as
blessings to a people already harass
ed seriously, and seeking a way out
by a sound and sensible route.
All of which leads up to the ques
tion that ought to be put up to every
man seeking public office:
What do you know about business
that you should set yourself up as
one capable of enacting laws to re
form and better business? Oregon

To carry on the predatory animal and
