Don't throw vour "ote away.
That' what thy used to tell
us when we wire young and
showed a disposition to vote with
a hopeless minority. We thought
then and we think now that he
only throws his vote away who
has failed to make it register his
Voting with the majority has
nothing: to do with it. We throw
away our votes both when we
vote for principles and candidates
that are not our own and when
we fail to vote at all.
We are soldiers all. drafted for
the battle for the common good.
The ballot is our weapon and the
ballot box our station.
The citizen who wilfully or
carelessly absents himself from
the polling booth is as derelict
in duty to the state as the soldier

Last week on the anniversary
of our nation's birth we joined
with the throng that made holi
day. But the test of our
patriotism was not made that
day, was not to be found in the
interest with which we listened
to the oft repeated tale of our
country's glorious past, or the
test with whic we tripped it on
the light fantastic toe, watched
the whirling sphere on the athlet
ic field or joined in the fellowship
and revelry of the feast
That test wilt be made next
November, and the proof of
patriotism will ne the delivery at
the Ark of the National Covenant

To Hesitate is Safe
' It used to be "He who hesitates
is lost" Now "He who hesi
tates at grade crossings is safe,"
ays David R. Faries, General
Counsel for the Automobile Club
of Southern California.
The old proverb that he who
hesitates is lost doesn't apply to
motorists on this side. of a rail
road crossing. A moment's hisi
tation to enable driver to look in
both directions frequently msans
the difference between safety
and death or serious injury.
During 1923 there were 2,208
fatalities and 6.314 injuries to
persons at crossings of railways
and highways in the United
States. Of these accicpnts 84

Radio Over Lighting Wires
The baffling question as to
who is to pay for radio broad
casting is being solved in Staten
Island, N. Y., where for the last
IS months an engineering staff
has been developing the "wired
radio" inventions of Major Gen
eral George O.Squier. Apparatus
has already been perfected by
which two different radio pro
grams can be transmitted over
the lighting wires from the
Staten Island generating station.
and within a short time equip
ment for transmitting three
programs will be completed.
Tentative plans of Wired Radio,
Inc., a North American Co..
subsidiary which is doing the
development work, call for the
eventual establishment of a
nation-wide "wired radio" ser
vice. This service will consist
of three continuous programs
from studios in New York. Chi
cago. and a Pacific Coast city
which will be sent over trunk
wires to central generating sta
tions in all parts of the country
From the central stations these
national programs (supplemented
by local programs) will be trans
mitted to subscribers via the
lighting lines. Each subscriber
will be provided, at a monthlv
rental of $2, with, a small tuning
device that is plugged into anv
convenient lamp socket. Because
a large percentage of the month
ly rental receipts can be devoted
to paying for talent, the expecta
tions are that the wired radio
programs will be of an exception
ally high quality.
