cy, an appalling growth of bureauc
racy. It would be difficult to conceive
of anything more disastrous occurring
n our economic life than such an ex
tension of the principle of national
ization contemplated by certain pro
fessional propagandists with their
headquarters in the national capital.
"The plans of this group appear to
me to be pivoted upon an attack di
rected against the hydro-electric in
dustry of the country as a whole, but
particularly as represented by certain
large companies which are immediate
ly interested in some of the great
outstanding opportunities for Jcvol-
Opment and the growing nee i thnre
ifor. The wise and adequate control
set up and maintained under Ine ) ed
eral Water Power act of 1920, which
combines with opportunity for pri

The Chautauqua prgoram this year
is no ''humdrum," monotonous af
fair. Every day of the program will
have something distinctive and un
usual about it.
This is in keeping with the mod
ern demand of entertainment seekers
that the programs offered them be
out of the ordinary.
The Maids o' Dundee uie by far the
most unusual group of entertainers
that come to Chautauqua and proba
bly the most unusual attraction that
has been seen here in n any a day.
Five talented, mischievous, rollick
ing girls, brimful of good humor, all
trained musicians, ali goud looking,
all young and vivacious, make up this
merry gang which is to attack the
hearts of Chautauqua goers on the
third day of the coming assembly.
They all sing, they all play, and
they all dance and they are all chock
full of surprising novelty stunts,
which go to liven up the two programs
that they give each day.
The circuit which is to be here is
the longest Chautauqua circuit in
point of mileage in the United States.
It begins in Texas, goes to California,
north to Washington, east clear to
Tennessee before it finally closes in
One would think that the long
travel and the long season would

alone a group of five girls. However,

The company is composed of Aileen
Ellison, who plays the cornet in a
way that few men can equal. Her
triple tongueing and solo work is a
feature to be remembered. More than
that, she dances the Highland Fling
in a truly Scotch Highland way.
Alene Campbell, the drummer, has
more traps and more stunts and more
surprises in her handling of this half
of the orchestra than any other girl
you ever saw.
Dorothy Holcomb is the violinist,
and she knows just how to coax from
that touchy instrument its softest
tones and its most tantalizing and
Marjorie Way presides at the piano
and romps over the keys in such a
bewildering manner that the piano
truly sings. Then, Marjorie is a vo
cal soloist of very unusual ability
and her solo numbers will be remem
bered long after many other parts of
the Chautauqua have been forgotten.
Cleo Slagel is the artist of the sax
ophone, that instrument which has
come so much into its own in the
last few years.
The Maids 'o Dundee in their two
appearances give programs of such
contagious good humor and sparkling
life and color that no one who sees
them will ever forget their entertainment.

One of the most notable contribu
tions in the discussion of government
in business has recently come from
the pen of John Spargo, author-lecturer
and long associated with the
socialist cause. He has made a con
cise statement with respect to a gen
eral movement looking to thea nation-
alization of an important part of our

New York Times of May 8, he says:
"Unless I misread the signs that

by a vigorous, determined and ably
