Rome, Jan. 1. (Corespondence of

emerged from the war with a greater
population than she had before, tho'

of 2,000,000 by the restoration of
Italian territory heretofore under
Austrian rule and to the high birth
rate which, it is estimated, kept the
population up to its normal of 36,000, 36,000,-000,

While many of us may doubt Henry
Ford's ability as a statesman, he has
given us too much proof to doubt his
patriotism, his common sense and his
sense of justice. His paper, the Dear Dearborn
born Dearborn Independent does not seem to be

attracting much attention, but it is
proof in itself that it is ably edited.
The leading article on the editorial
page this week refers to the present
burning question of where the line be between
tween between liberty and license shall be

drawn. Although the editor strug

gles under the name of Henry Pipp,
he is most evidently well posted on

American history and able to deduce

reason from facts. His leading article

is as follows:

The constitution was drawn up by
delegates who held meetings and de debates

The fight for and against its adop

tion was a most bitter one.
So divided was public opinion on it
that it got through by a very narrow
margin. New York state did not vote
for it until enough other states had
voted favorably to make it law, and
Rhode Island did not come in until

Alia while the constitution was
adopted, many of the ablest opponents
to its adoption were elected to Con Congress

That purpose was to see that cer certain

the document.

One of the ablest workers -on theJ

constitution itself was James Madison
who had much to do with drawing up
the document, and is sometimes called
the "Father of the Constitution."
After his labors Madison went back

to his home state, Virginia, for the
approval of the people. He was bit

terly opposed by Patrick Henry and

other strong leaders.

There were many and varied objec

tions to the document, but one of the

principal points on which it was as assailed

tain contain what its opponents termed a
"Bill of Rights" for the people.

This issue was raised in practically

every state, and in each case its ad

vocates urged the people to adopt the

constitution and amend it afterward.
The people showed that they did not
intend taking any chances on losing

the amendments.

In Virginia, Madison got the con

stitution adopted and wanted to go to
the Senate, but while Henry could not
muster quite enough votes to defeat

the constitution, he was able to de defeat

Madison became a candidate for the

House of Representatives and was
elected only on promising that he

of the land.

When in Congress, Madison became

speaker of the House.

Seventy-seven amendments were
proposed. Of these the House acted
favorably on 17, which were reduced
to 12 by the Senate and all but two

were adopted by the people; Madison

in later years became president.

Unusual Value In Tires

1 H f
a y




1 Cars

Not only is characteristic Goodyear merit
conspicuous in Goodyear Tires for small cars
but ordinarily the first cost is found to be
not greater than that of other tires; often it
is actually less.
The combination of unusual value in first
cost and very low final cost, of course, is a
result of Goodyear experience, expertness
and care employed as insistently in the
making of 30x3, 30x3Vv and 31x4-inch tires
as it is in the construction of the famous
Goodyear Cord Tires used on the highest
priced automobiles
For this reason more cars using these small
sizes were factory equipped last year with
Goodyear Tires than with any other kind
Get this unusual tire value to enjoy on your
Ford, Chevrolet, Dort, Maxwell, or other
small car, at the nearest Goodyear Service
Station. Get these tires and Goodyear Heavy
Tourist Tubes at this station.

tinople Constantinople is located at our embassy,
Eleanor Franklin Egan writes In the
Saturday Evening Post. We have an
embassy In Constantinople. Oh, yes I
