Shall We Progress
Wisely?
In recent years the Greater Miami
district has been particularly noted
for its luck of Zionist activity, ( Per-
mit that statement to be qualified
as not intending to cover the activ-
ities ol Hadassah.i If there were a
happening of note in Jewish na-
tional circles. Miami, so far as the
local Zionist organization was con-
cerned, knew it not.
However after a trip north at
intervals of a year or so. like the
good Jew who made his pilgrimage
to Jerusalem at least thrice yearly,
and we presume after a good old
fashioned bawling out by the au-
thorities of the Zionist Organization
of America, there appeared signs of
an awakening from the lethargy
that had enveloped them, and for a
period of probably not more than
two weeks, activities such as meet-
ings were begun. And then dead.
dead and dead .
This year the annual trip was
taken, the stimulant duly admini-
stered and assimilated, and again a
meeting is held.
We think too much of the prob-
lems confronting the Jewish people
at this tune to speak of individual
happenings unless these happenings
retard the progress and growth of
an important factor of Jewish life.
Zionism is too vital a factor in Jew-
ish life to be ignored; it is too big
to be crushed and manhandled for
m.v selfish individualistic purpose.
No district is too small, no hamlet
too insignificant, for Zionism to
spread its gospel among its inhabi-
tants. Zionism, its hopes, its plans,
"a aspirations, mean too much to
world Jewry as a nation, as a solu-
tion to many of its difficult prob-
lems to let any stone be unturned
111 the spread of its story.
Here in Miami, because of le-
thargic officials. Zionism has not
ten given a fair deal. It has been
kept, willingly or unwillingly, within
he grasp of a handful of people. A
meeting was held last week on very
brief notice; Just a few hand-picked
Individuals were invited and there a
certain number of individuals again
were elected to lead in INACTIV-
ITY. It was wrong and ill advised
We hope that the good gentlemen
who were invited to attend this
hand-picked gathering will realize,
before it is too late, that Zionism is
not merely gathering money, or
calling mass meetings to ratify pri-
vate elections. Zionism, if it is to
"ve locally, must be made a move-
ment of ALL THE PEOPLE and
not merely a few.
In all honesty and fairness, and
teause we believe that it is not yet
lo late, we suggest: A mass meet-
">g should be held at which every

Gods Chosen People and no amount
of Jew-baiting can oust them from
their elected station "Whom God
will Father, no man can smother."
Will He but grant them a small fa-
vour they accept it is surety for
greater graces: "He who helped us
to fish will also help us to pepper."
Not a single one of His creatures is
left forgotten in the eternal plan:
"Where God sets the hare He makes
mass grow there."
Sometimes, of course, great misery
breeds cynicism: "God is a Father;
if He doesn't grant one abscess. He
grants another." But in the natural
order of events. Jewry felt certain
that the angels were on their side
and that the Lord would redeem
them from bondage, and that their
enemies would be confounded, and
that in the battle ol Gog and Ma-
gog, they would, though unarmed,
--merge victorious, for "It God wills
it. a broom can shoot. ."
Jews
Nonetheless, though, it was be-
lieved that Jewry was held in high
si .(in by the Celestial Powers. Jews
themselves, to judge by sardonic
proverbiage uttered bitter jibes at
one another. Heine it was who said
that the Jews rejected Christ be-
cause no Jew can believe in the di-
vinity of another; and the proverbs
substantiate his contention. "Better
m the hands of heathens, than in
the mouths of Jews." "All Jews look
good on tombstones." "Only to eat
kugcl with a Jew is good, and that
not from the same plate." Despite
i heir paradoxically anti-Semitic na-
ture, these utterances have the sav-
in:; mace of being manufactured
en famlUe; the person who coined
I hem did not exclude himself from
his jocular indictments They
are. indeed, a kind of verbal self-
flagellation, a castigation of the
soul by method of self-reproach. For
all Jews knew themselves to be in
the same condition of helplessness,
the butts of a divine prank. There-
fore they said: "A Jew ha.s time
only tu be sick." When does a Jew
sing? When he Is hungry?'' "All
Jews are cantors, but most of them
are hoarse." "What Is a Jewish
pleasure? A cool fast-day!"
Money
It Is in the proverbs concerning
parnoso. labour and money, that our
anceslors manifested their shrewd-
ness and wit. Without civic rights,
in meal countries considered as no
more than chattels of royalty, they
soon realized that their only strong-
holds were their fortunes. "Grati-
tude," they said, "cannot be put in
the pocket." They knew. too. that

city commission. Since 1923 Mr.
Dean has been managing his real
estate holdings and taking an active
interest in public affairs. His many
friends point to his definite and de-
termined stand in favor of the peo-
ple's rights at all times as against
corporate interests during his own-
ership of Miami's present Daily-
News. His knowledge of city affairs,
they predict, will be necessary in the
proper administration of economy
and efficiency in city affairs.

Tom Kelly, a resident of Miami
for the past 14 years, and who by his
actual accomplishments in public-
communal work has shown his wil-
lingness to do rather than talk is
finishing a whirlwind campaign for
the office of city commissioner, dur-
ing which time he has personally
talked with many voters. He stresses
the fact that he is not affiliated
with any particular faction or corp-
orate interests, and that in making
the campaign he is fighting for the
welfare of the city at large for the
benefit of every resident and tax-
payer. His friends point to his rec-
ord with the American Legion, to
his work with the drum and bugle
corps of the Miami Junior Cham-
ber of Commerce and such other ac-
complishments as proof of the fact
that Tom Kelly Is vitally interested
in the future and present welfare of
the city in fact and not merely in
theory.
Jack Maltzie ha.s received consid-
erable encouragement during the
I past week by the repeated endorse-
i merits of the different labor groups
1 of Miami, who have urged their
members and the voters at large to
support him for city commissioner.
Maltzie's friends point to the fact
that he is one of the people, that
coming in continuous contact for a
long time with the great mass of
local unemployed he understands
Miami's actual conditions and the
necessity for the practice of strict
economy in the city's governmental
affairs Maltzie has been an active
campaigner for a reduction of pub-
lic utility rates though pressure and
enticing efforts have been made to
have him withdraw from the fight.
Maltzie is running on a platform of
"service for all the people of Miami,"
and will, if elected, insist that the
affairs of Miami be carried on in
the interests of all the taxpayers

Owen W. Pittman. jr.. son ol Mi-

support of the voters next Tuesday I
because of his unqualified stand on |
every matter of public interest so ;
that voters do not have to guess. In
first becoming a candidate. Mr. Pitt-
man made an unqualified and defi-
nite stand on every question. He
believes in economy of public ad-
ministration, has made a thorough
study of the bond problem, urges a
revaluation of real estate, the abol-
ishment of personal taxes, the elim-
ination of the public bondsmen,
reduction in the cost of the city's
legal department, the removal of
nepotism and such other reforms as
will accomplish savings and benefits
to the residents and taxpayers of
the city. His friends point to his
legal training, his record as a law-
yer, and his generally admitted
abilities and honesty as a reason for
his election as city commissioner.

Electrocution in the Bible?
Scripture Reading, Lev., Chapter X, Versei /->, Incl.
TWO men were debating the truth of Solomon's statement that there
is nothing new under the sun. The question of telegraphy was brought
up. The defender of Solomon said. "Oh. yes. there was telegraphy. Why.
some archa'ologists were digging in Babylonia and they found some copper
wires, which proves that the Babylonians had knowledge of telegraphy
The doubter thought a moment, then said. "And how about wireless?"
The champion of Scriptural Truth was undaunted. He replied, "Yes. of
course. Another group of scientists were excavating in Egypt and they
found no wires. This proves that they had wireless telegraphy in ancient
Egypt."
ALL this may sound facetious, but what I have lo say. now. may sound
startling. It may even .sound very irreligious to those who would
lather endow the Creator, the God of Love, with vengeful traits. As for
me. I would rather believe Him a kind, merciful Father, who does not
stoop to torture His children. When we suffer, it is because we have vio-
lated one of the laws which brings wiUi it its own retributive consequences.
NAPTALI Hertz Imber Is known as the composer of the Hatikvah. tin-
Hebrew national anthem, which bespeaks the longing lor a homeland
on the soil of our fathers. Pew know of him as anything else, it was my
good fortune to read one ot ins efforts In Biblical commentary and I
want to advise you ol his theory In explanation of this death of Nadab and
Abihu. the two sons of Aaron, who "offered strange lire" before the Lord,
and who died, as a result. The explanation given was that the constant
fire used at the altar was produced by an electric dynamo The kno\
of how to operate the switch was held by Aaron as High Priest His sons,
as lesser priests, were not instructed In electro-dynamics Accordingly.
when they sought to operate the dynamo of their own accord, In violation
of their lower rank, they came In contact with live wires and they were
electrocuted. According to scripture they were burnt to death but their
coats were not consumed by the fire. We find that their bodies were car-
ried out "in their coats" from the sanctuary
I FULLY realize that I lay myself open to criticism from two sides from
the so-called religious on the one sidi. and. from the anti-religious on
the other. The latter would deny any such advanced knowledge to Moses
and Aaron some three thousand years ago Bui. they must admit that the
ancient Egyptians had knowledge ol embalming which has since been lost.
At least, we, despite our great boasts ol scientific accomplishment at
unable to preserve bodies in the manner of the Egyptian mummies. Scien-

THE criticism of those who would rather believe m a God of Vengeance
is equally mistaken in that they prefer to detract I rum the Divine
Spirit which inspired Moses. Why Is it inconsistent to accept the theory
that God. who surely knows all. taught Moses the laws of electricity? Why
could ii not have been an electric spark which was meant by the verse im-
mediately preceding our scripture reading for today, which States 'Lev.
IX. 24), "And there came a fire out from before the Lord, and consumed
upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people
saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces."? Aaron did not kindle the fire
with a match or a torch. The fire came from "before the Lord." from I
above. Where does lightning come from? What is it if not an electrical
display?
I WOULD rather believe that Nadab and Abiliu were electrocuted by
contact with a high-voltage live wire when they ventured to do some-
thing which had been forbidden them because they were ignorant of its
manipulation than that they were killed as punishment for their disobed-
ience. That seems too drastic an act by an all-loving and all-merciful God.
That sounds more like the beastly and tyrannical trait of the human type
who boasts of having been created in the image of God. What a monster
their God must be!
AFTER this service is concluded I want you to go to your Bibles and to
read the last verse in Chapter IX of Leviticus and the first live verses
of Chapter X. Read them over in the light of the Interpretation I have
just given and see for yourself it it fits the story. Bear In mind that a fire
went out and devoured Nadab and Abihu. but. that they were later carried
out of the sanctuary IN THEIR OWN COATS. What sort of fire could
have consumed them and yet would have left their coats not burned?
Could electricity have done it?
FOR the past seventeen months, each Sunday, over this station. I have
been fighting a single-handed battle. Because I love God I have bat-
tled against all Influences that have attempted to malign God. His Holl-
and Inspired Book, the Torah. and the people who have suffered persi cu-
tions because they have spread light wherever a Jew has set his foot.
Scripture has been taught as the word of God. Men have been burned at
the stake for proclaiming these truths. Men are still persecuted for daring
to preach the word of God in its simplicity and without the pet interpre-
tations of this sect or that group, this "ism" or that cult. New cults spring
up to capture the fancy of those people who fail to finj the happiness
they crave in the existing religious organizations. We need no cults. We
need no denominations. We need no "isms." What we need, what we crave,
is the Truth. People everywhere want to know God. The youth has lost
faith in religions because they have witnessed the bloodshed in the name
of a God of Love. Youth demands consistency. It wants ihe God of Love
to imbue his creatures with love. They don't want to worship a scarecrow.
They can see the straw sticking out from under the clothing. They don't

selfish, and unlinked to special interests, are placet* in office. Mr.
Williams, who served faithfully, honestly. Impartially and ably as
justice of the peace for several years, was born thirty-nine years ago,
is married and has four children. For a number of years he was en-
gaged in the wholesale candy and paper business as well as in the
real estate business. He is the organizer and is now the president of
the Riverside Improvement Association, one of the most potent fac-
tors for good in the city of Miami today. He was one of the original
organizers and is now a director of the Public Utilities Protective
League which has been active in the fight to reduce the utility rates
in the city. In making his campaign, Mr. Williams is urging a sane
course in adjusting the bond situation now existing here, and believes
that an honest effort to have the bondholders receive payment com-
mensurate with the city's ability to pay. without repudiation of the
bonds, will solve the problem. He favors the reduction of the utility
rates, as evidenced by his work with the Public Utilities Protective
League, and a reduction in taxes brought about by a reduction in gov-
ernment costs. In urging the election of "Bob" Williams as city com-
missioner his friends urge

Campaign Briefs
(Continued from Page 3)
Coming to Miami in 1925. Mr.
Leonard K. Thomson, candidate for
the city commission, became con-
nected with the Geo. W". Langford
interests in the management of
many of their local hotels and con-
struction affairs. As manager of the
McAllister hotel. Thomson soon be-
came one of the most popular men
in Miami and he has continually
aided in every civic endeavor that
Miami has had. He recently was
elected president of the Florida Ho-
tel Men's association. Many of Mi-
ami's prominent professional and
business men have voluntarily aided
Mr. Thomson in his campaign be-
cause ol their belief that substan-
tial men Interested In good govern-
ment and willing to sacrifice their
personal Interests for good govern-
ment are needed on the city com-
mission at this time.
Prank H. Wharton. one of the
candidates for the city commission
of Miami is In reality one of its
builders. He came to Miami while
Henry Flagler was first building the
now demolished Royal Palm hotel,
which Frank Wharton helped con-
struct. He then worked in the gro-
cery business until 1902, when he
organized the Magnolia Grocery
store, which he owned and operated
for 17 years. In 1903 lie was elected
to the city council and served until
1907. when he became city mayor. In
1921 he became city manager and
continued until 1927. when he step-
ped out. lie was again called to this
position in 1930 and remained in
office for one year, when he resign-
ed. His friends timed that if knowl-
edge of the city's affairs are neces-
sary, it honesty and integrity is a
requisite for public office, and years
of experience are an aid, then the
voters should elect Wharton to the
City commission and thus insure
through intelligent action the future
welfare of the city.

originators of the Public Utilities
Protective league, former justice of
the peace and successful business
man. is asking the support of the
voters of Miami next Tuesday in his
race for the city commission upon
his record of public service, his ac-
complishments in civic work and his
platform of definite reforms in the
city's governmental affairs. "Bob."
as he Is known to thousands of Ml-
amians. has been untiring in his
work for the reduction of electric
rates and other public utility affairs
though many others have taken the
I credit for work which he accomp-
; lished and originated. He opposes
taxation for publicity purpose, be-
lieving that at this tune it Is fat
more important to reduce taxes than
atford funds which should be pro-
vided by civic organizations it the
voters of Miami need a mar who Is

T WO men were debating the truth of Solomon's statement that there is nothing new under the sun. The question of telegraphy was brought up. The defender of Solomon said. "Oh. yes. there was telegraphy. Why. some archa'ologists were digging in Babylonia and they found some copper wires, which proves that the Babylonians had knowledge of telegraphy The doubter thought a moment, then said. "And how about wireless?" The champion of Scriptural Truth was undaunted. He replied, "Yes. of course. Another group of scientists were excavating in Egypt and they found no wires. This proves that they had wireless telegraphy in ancient Egypt." A LL this may sound facetious, but what I have lo say. now. may sound startling. It may even .sound very irreligious to those who would lather endow the Creator, the God of Love, with vengeful traits. As for me.

Pew know of him as anything else, it was my good fortune to read one ot ins efforts In Biblical commentary and I want to advise you ol his theory In explanation of this death of Nadab and Abihu. the two sons of Aaron, who "offered strange lire" before the Lord, and who died, as a result. The explanation given was that the constant fire used at the altar was produced by an electric dynamo The kno\ of how to operate the switch was held by Aaron as High Priest His sons, as lesser priests, were not instructed In electro-dynamics Accordingly. when they sought to operate the dynamo of their own accord, In violation of their lower rank, they came In contact with live wires and they were electrocuted. According to scripture they were burnt to death but their coats were not consumed by the fire. We find that their bodies were carried out "in their coats" from the sanctuary I FULLY realize that I lay myself open to criticism from two sides from the so-called religious on the one sidi. and. from the anti-religious on the other.

PHONE t-SlSI T HE criticism of those who would rather believe m a God of Vengeance is equally mistaken in that they prefer to detract I rum the Divine Spirit which inspired Moses. Why Is it inconsistent to accept the theory that God. who surely knows all. taught Moses the laws of electricity? Why could ii not have been an electric spark which was meant by the verse immediately preceding our scripture reading for today, which States 'Lev. IX. 24), "And there came a fire out from before the Lord, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces."? Aaron did not kindle the fire with a match or a torch. The fire came from "before the Lord." from I above. Where does lightning come from? What is it if not an electrical display? I WOULD rather believe that Nadab and Abiliu were electrocuted by contact with a high-voltage live wire when they ventured to do something which had been forbidden them because they were ignorant of its manipulation than that they were killed as punishment for their disobedience. That seems too drastic an act by an all-loving and all-merciful God. That sounds more like the beastly and tyrannical trait of the human type who boasts of having been created in the image of God. What a monster their God must be! A FTER this service is concluded I want you to go to your Bibles and to read the last verse in Chapter IX of Leviticus and the first live verses of Chapter X. Read them over in the light of the Interpretation I have just given and see for yourself it it fits the story. Bear In mind that a fire went out and devoured Nadab and Abihu. but. that they were later carried out of the sanctuary IN THEIR OWN COATS. What sort of fire could have consumed them and yet would have left their coats not burned? Could electricity have done it? F OR the past seventeen months, each Sunday, over this station.

Men have been burned at the stake for proclaiming these truths. Men are still persecuted for daring to preach the word of God in its simplicity and without the pet interpretations of this sect or that group, this "ism" or that cult. New cults spring up to capture the fancy of those people who fail to finj the happiness they crave in the existing religious organizations. We need no cults. We need no denominations. We need no "isms." What we need, what we crave, is the Truth. People everywhere want to know God. The youth has lost faith in religions because they have witnessed the bloodshed in the name of a God of Love. Youth demands consistency. It wants ihe God of Love to imbue his creatures with love.

In recent years the Greater Miami district has been particularly noted for its luck of Zionist activity, ( Permit that statement to be qualified as not intending to cover the activities ol Hadassah.i If there were a happening of note in Jewish national circles. Miami, so far as the local Zionist organization was concerned, knew it not. However after a trip north at intervals of a year or so. like the good Jew who made his pilgrimage to Jerusalem at least thrice yearly, and we presume after a good old fashioned bawling out by the authorities of the Zionist Organization of America, there appeared signs of an awakening from the lethargy that had enveloped them, and for a period of probably not more than two weeks, activities such as meetings were begun. And then dead. dead and dead This year the annual trip was taken, the stimulant duly administered and assimilated, and again a meeting is held. We think too much of the problems confronting the Jewish people at this tune to speak of individual happenings unless these happenings retard the progress and growth of an important factor of Jewish life. Zionism is too vital a factor in Jewish life to be ignored; it is too big to be crushed and manhandled for m.v selfish individualistic purpose. No district is too small, no hamlet too insignificant, for Zionism to spread its gospel among its inhabitants. Zionism, its hopes, its plans, "A aspirations, mean too much to world Jewry as a nation, as a solution to many of its difficult problems to let any stone be unturned 111 the spread of its story. Here in Miami, because of lethargic officials. Zionism has not ten given a fair deal. It has been kept, willingly or unwillingly, within •he grasp of a handful of people. A meeting was held last week on very brief notice; Just a few hand-picked Individuals were invited and there a certain number of individuals again were elected to lead in INACTIVITY. It was wr ong and ill advised We hope that the good gentlemen who were invited to attend this hand-picked gathering will realize, before it is too late, that Zionism is not merely gathering money, or calling mass meetings to ratify private elections. Zionism, if it is to "ve locally, must be made a movem ent of ALL THE PEOPLE and not merely a few. In all honesty and fairness, and teause we believe that it is not yet l o late, we suggest: A mass meet">g should be held at which every Je in the district should be urged The Jew And His Proverb (Continued from Page One) ultimate salvation to come from Omnipotence finds immortal expression. Their anxieties for the future are entrusted to Him: "For the morrow, let God sorrow.They are Gods Chosen People and no amount of Jew-baiting can oust them from their elected station "Whom God will Father, no man can smother." Will He but grant them a small favour they accept it is surety for greater graces: "He who helped us to fish will also help us to pepper." Not a single one of His creatures is left forgotten in the eternal plan: "Where God sets the hare He makes mass grow there." Sometimes, of course, great misery breeds cynicism: "God is a Father; if He doesn't grant one abscess. He grants another." But in the natural order of events. Jewry felt certain that the angels were on their side and that the Lord would redeem them from bondage, and that their enemies would be confounded, and that in the battle ol Gog and Magog, they would, though unarmed, --merge victorious, for "It God wills it. a broom can shoot. ." Jews Nonetheless, though, it was believed that Jewry was held in high si .(in by the Celestial Powers. Jews themselves, to judge by sardonic proverbiage uttered bitter jibes at one another. Heine it was who said that the Jews rejected Christ because no Jew can believe in the divinity of another; and the proverbs substantiate his contention. "Better m the hands of heathens, than in the mouths of Jews." "All Jews look good on tombstones." "Only to eat kugcl with a Jew is good, and that not from the same plate." Despite i heir paradoxically anti-Semitic nature, these utterances have the savin:; mace of being manufactured en famlUe; the person who coined I hem did not exclude himself from his jocular indictments They are. indeed, a kind of verbal selfflagellation, a castigation of the soul by method of self-reproach. For all Jews knew themselves to be in the same condition of helplessness, the butts of a divine prank. Therefore they said: "A Jew ha.s time only tu be sick." When does a Jew sing? When he Is hungry?'' "All Jews are cantors, but most of them are hoarse." "What Is a Jewish pleasure? A cool fast-day!" Money It Is in the proverbs concerning parnoso. labour and money, that our anceslors manifested their shrewdness and wit. Without civic rights, in meal countries considered as no more than chattels of royalty, they soon realized that their only strongholds were their fortunes. "Gratitude," they said, "cannot be put in the pocket." They knew. too. that surrounded by a corrupt oflicialdom (Continued on Page 61 Campaign Briefs fContinued from Pace One) lished a paper there until he came to Miami in 1904. at which time he purchased the Miami Metropolis until 1923. when he sold the paper to its present owners, the Daily News, is now a candidate for the city commission. Since 1923 Mr. Dean has been managing his real estate holdings and taking an active interest in public affairs. His many friends point to his definite and determined stand in favor of the people's rights at all times as against corporate interests during his ownership of Miami's present DailyNews. His knowledge of city affairs, they predict, will be necessary in the proper administration of economy and efficiency in city affairs. THE GUM) Tom Kelly, a resident of Miami for the past 14 years, and who by his actual accomplishments in publiccommunal work has shown his willingness to do rather than talk is finishing a whirlwind campaign for the office of city commissioner, during which time he has personally talked with many voters. He stresses the fact that he is not affiliated with any particular faction or corporate interests, and that in making the campaign he is fighting for the welfare of the city at large for the benefit of every resident and taxpayer. His friends point to his record with the American Legion, to his work with the drum and bugle corps of the Miami Junior Chamber of Commerce and such other accomplishments as proof of the fact that Tom Kelly Is vitally interested in the future and present welfare of the city in fact and not merely in theory. Jack Maltzie ha.s received considerable encouragement during the I past week by the repeated endorsei merits of the different labor groups 1 of Miami, who have urged their members and the voters at large to support him for city commissioner. Maltzie's friends point to the fact that he is one of the people, that coming in continuous contact for a long time with the great mass of local unemployed he understands Miami's actual conditions and the necessity for the practice of strict economy in the city's governmental affairs Maltzie has been an active campaigner for a reduction of public utility rates though pressure and enticing efforts have been made to have him withdraw from the fight. Maltzie is running on a platform of "service for all the people of Miami," and will, if elected, insist that the affairs of Miami be carried on in the interests of all the taxpayers without favoritism to any. to attend. At this meeting new men. not those who have shown inability to direct, be chosen to head a new, revitalised, active, pulsating Zionist movement in Miami. Let the officers who were chosen at the small group meeting give up their individual ambitions, if such they have, and let them serve only TEMPORARILY LET THIS MASS MEETING BE WELL PUBLICIZED, let sufficient notice be given to all so that every Jew may attend. Let no Caznstic methods be employed in limiting speech. Let everyone who cares to. speak forth his heart. Then and only then will Zionism in Miami reach that stage to which it is rightfully entitled. Let us PROCEED WISELY, not selfishly. Owen W. Pittman. jr.. son ol Miami's postmaster, is asking for the ', support of the voters next Tuesday I because of his unqualified stand on | every matter of public interest so ; that voters do not have to guess. In first becoming a candidate. Mr. Pittman made an unqualified and definite stand on every question. He believes in economy of public administration, has made a thorough study of the bond problem, urges a revaluation of real estate, the abolishment of personal taxes, the elimination of the public bondsmen, reduction in the cost of the city's legal department, the removal of nepotism and such other reforms as will accomplish savings and benefits to the residents and taxpayers of the city. His friends point to his legal training, his record as a lawyer, and his generally admitted abilities and honesty as a reason for his election as city commissioner. (Continued on Page SI The city girl stood and watched the farmer milk the only cow he had. The next morning the farmer was very much excited, as the cowhad been stolen during the night. Farmer: "Drat the thief that stole that cow. He's miles away from here by now." Little Girl: "I wouldn't worry 'bout it. mister, 'cause they can't get so far away with it. You drained the crankcase last night." Native African customs are not so much different from ours after all. Over there a woman never sees her husband before they're married, while over here it's after. "What kind of business is your father in?" "He runs a store." "What kind of a store?" "Well, he has Ford parts for sale; buys butter, eggs and poultry: deals in real estate, paints and fencing; marries folks in his capacity as justice of the peace; runs the past office; sells stamps, hams, molasses and cider; serves meals and takes in roomers. I recken you'd call it a drug store." He called his roadster "Flapper"— It was streamlined fore and aft; It had a gaudy paint job. And of speed it Jiad a raft: It was right there on the pick-up. And it warmed up like a flash; Always ready to go places, And exhausted all his cash. There's no cynic like an automobile insurance, adjuster. Success is doing what you want to do and making enough money to pay your bills. Be pleasant but not too pleasant. Some rules seem to consist only of exceptions. There's something good, even noble, about anyone who does his job well." Every sensible man knows his faults and is doing his best to correct them. After eating fresh onions, beware of saying "marvelous" or "expostulate." If a guest doesn't know when to leave, he doesn't know anything. Everybody discounts the boasts of parents when they tell about their married sons and daughters Beware of the man who promises more than you have a right to expect. The old men are looking so young these days that they all seem to die before their time. No man is a failure who is enjoying life. The success of every business rests finally on the integrity of the owners. Very little that is of superior merit is permanently overlooked. How much alike people are in general outline, but how different in detail! Uncertainty is almost as disturbing as bad news. Most of us try all the wrong ways before we submit to the rigM way of doing things. It is hard to tell what California scientists can do with their temperature of 459.1 degrees below zero, as nothing of the kind Is required for beer. In the confusion of wishing him bon voyage and God speed, no one thought to get Shaw's signature to the remark that he may never return. Fairy story: "The trip was a failure in a material sense." said the job hunter, back from the capital, "but I got a thrill out of the cherry' blossoms." A defendant — in Alabama this time — had never heard ol the Volstead Act. Maybe it should have been got up in the form ol a law. It's always a great bore lor tinburglar if the safe is locked. Wise men get a lot of free instructions from fools. Pleasure that isn't shared with another loses hall Its power to please. Some people flatter themselves when they can't get others to do it for them. It may be cowardly to kick a man when he's down, but it's sometimenecessary in order to get him up. It's unwise to judge a man by the criticism of his enemies. Only his friends can properly denounce him. In after years a man may not be averse to acknowledging the superior wisdom of the other fellow who had a chance to many his wile but didn't. The Roosevelt reforestry force is to be known as the C C C. From a pharmaceutical standpoint, the whole thing is becoming very military. The states vary as to the minimum age prescribed for beer buyers, some saying 18. while others would restrict all under 21 to gin. A police survey of New York City shows that the metropolis ha.s only 9.000 blind pigs. It isn't the pigs that are blind, it's the policemen. A young man who had spent the first 18 years of his life in Paris failed in a French conversation course when he entered an American college. Parisians have not had the advantage of learning French in American colleges. It is a common observation of American students traveling there that they do talk queer. The women of Timor Laut. a traveler relates, are permitted to keep only one eye open in the presence of men. In the presence of these women, of course, a wise man will keep both eyes open, and his fingers crossed. Nevertheless, a lecturer on the Spiritual Life vs. Material Life Is elated when his eloquence produces an increase in his income. The more helpful a man is around the house the more he's imposed on.
