Business is Business
The following paragraphs are
taken from an article in the
Smithville Times concerning
their graduating class. News-
papers hesitate to go after a sub.
ject like this, for they know the
youngsters are not entirely to
blame, yet something should be
done to stop any tendency in
schools to graduate whole classes
of mail order patrons. It is the
duty of schools to make good cit-
izens and it is well known that
the chronic mail order patron is
not worth as much to his com-
munity as the citizen who gives
the home dealer a chance, not
for patriotic reasons, necessa-
rily, but from a standpoint of
fairness and good business judge-
ment. The Times says in part:
" If our schools are graduating
boys and girls who demonstrate
clearly that they have not the
slightest conception of, or appre-
ciation of, the first principles of
good citizenship, then those who
have been gratuitously giving
time and money for their educa-
tion, have excuse for criticising
tire system under ^hich these
bave been graduated.
"This year, with a newspaper
that has consistenly built for
twenty-fiVfe years in interest of
the Smithville public school sys-
tem, the Class of 1917 let t,he
contract for their invitations, to-
taling something over $100, to
some northern stationer without
giving the Times even the privil-
ege of bidding. This demon-
strates three things:
they are without the first idea of
a practical business transaction;!
for to let a contract involving so
large an amount of money with-
out finding whether they could
do better elsewhere^hows a piti-
years in their interest. Third:
It demonstrates that the first
ethics of citizenship, civic pride,
public spirit and home building
have never been brought to their
attention. This is not a criticism
of the Class of 1917. They are
simply good boys and girls do-
ing exactly as they have been
"The Times has not withheld
commencement news in a spirit
of retaliation, but as a method of
calling attention to the fact that
as a matter of simple justice
there is nothing coming to the
Class of 1917 from the Times,
except at regular advertising
able lack of business acumen.
Second: It demonstrates that
they are lacking in a sense of ob-
ligation and appreciation of forces
that have been working for many
A Spirit of Sacrifice
All well informed persons know
that no successful war can be prose-
cuted without an active spirit of
sacrifice animating the people of a
country. Such a spirit is very ac-
tive in Franee, I 3gium, Italy and
England, for the achievements
prove it. There will have to be
such a spirit in the United States
if the victory is' to perch upon its
banners. Such a spirit, for exam-
ple, as that manifested by Captain
H B. Moore of Texas City, who
is now regularly in service.
Captain Moore was the executive
head of a great system or activities
at Texas City. He operated for a
great corporation a Steamship line,
wharves, warehouses, a terminal
railroad, a bank and other services
and enterprises which center there.
He has relinquished these and

S. P. J. S. T. Feast
The S. P. J. S. Ti feast here
Monday, brought out the largest
crowd that has been here for
many years. The procession of
decorated autos and lodges took
place in the morning led by our
original "Uncle Sam'' Bruns,
Chief Eilers and JohnKana. Ad-
dress of welcome was delivered
by Mayor Russek at Turner Hall
immediately after, with a res-
ponse by Judge Haidusek of La
Grange in the Bohemian lan-
In the afternoon a number of
prominent speakers held the at-
tion of the public on vital issues
of the day. The festivities closed
with a grand ball at night which
taxed the capacity of the house.
Music was furnished by the
Baca band of Fayetteville.
Those having the affair in
charge worked hard from early
morning until late at night look-
ing after the interests of their
guests and the lodge member-
ship was so unanimous in this
work that to attempt to give
credit would mean a complete

crisis, and as proof that the pur-
chaser did his "bit" for America
and for humanity. Possibly,
however, you may need money
at some time. Take your bond
to the bank and borrow on it. It
is good collateral. Go to your
bank tomorrow and file your ap-
plication. You have to pay only
two per cent of the amount of
your purchase. Englishmen and
Frenchmen are doingjtheir "bit,"
American citizens, do yours!
What you do will be done for our
country, our president, for
democracy, for humanity. Pel-
low citizens, let us do our duty.
