Calvin COoiklge has submitted his first message »<
congress. Friend and lot alike will agree that the
unexpected happened. The president had oeen parade*,
in the public prints of the country us an over-caution:
and extremely conservative leader. Noted political writ
ers including ihe veteran Washington correspondents
had predated that he would sidestep the important is
sues ol the hour and i>ass those issues on to th*
congress without presidential recommendation. The*-'
predictions were not fulfilled , They were not based op
a solid foundation, lor the president threw caution t<
the winds, bowed his neck and sent a message to thi
national lawmakers in which he d d not evade ni
issue nor sidestep nor bury his ideas or ideals or
cherished policies in u flood of words.
His message must be accepted a.* ihe republican
keynote for the presidential campaign of 1S24. H<
made the republican platform, assuming all resp.nsi
bility, in his first message 01 the congress and whiff
is a state paper remarkable for lucidity of expression
and a call to the leader- a- well as the followers
of his party to get m lute and impure for the great
political contest which is to n no n the near future.
First and foremost, lie endorsed the Harding pro
po-al for an Anierie n ne mtiership with reservations
in the world court: he unqualifiedly approved s. < re
tary Mellon's tax reduction plan and boldly announced
his oppisitlon tn <he enactment of -oldier bonus legisla-
tion. He covered ali the b nus ground with very few
words. Urging adequate rare for disabled termer *er>
ice men and genero-ity in providing such rare, i"
hurled this defiance, in the teeth of those who hay.
declared for the bonus: "1 do not fuvor the granting
of a bonus.’'
Thus he linked horns with Hiiam Johnson. William
Gibbs McAdoo. St.tuuol M. Halston and other avowed
champions of bonus legislation; thus be looked horns
•with the in-eeum inlilc senators, republican or democrat
■who are in opposition to the world court program;
thus he handed a smashing blow to the farm bloc
senators and representatves who have denounced th<
Mellon tax reduction plan while insisting on reduced
taxation as well as a bonus for the former service
men. * . 9
Sonutdr La Kollo tie and his followers derived srnal
-onsolntlon from ihe message. The president declaret
for stimulated consolidation of railroads, rtMjrgnii.zutku
of the railroad freight structure as applied io farm
products aud government assistance in the dlpposuioi
of exportable wheat. He declared against price-fixini
for farm products; against repeal of the rate seetior
if the tin asportation net and against revision of the

hat the wheat surplus shall be eared for hy warelious-
ng. then properly marketed in orderly fashion.
These ure among the vital issues before the Ameri
can people. They concern the farmer wherever thi
he may tie
The president touched and length on the many of he
problems confronting the American people, includint
Soviet Russia, and ail in all, it is not a flowery met
sage, but it is a meaty message. It is not a messagi
vouched in the language of diplomacy of the meaning
less words of the politician noted for bis noise and hit
verbosity. It is as cold and as matter of fact as thi
man who created it, straight from the shoalder am
in ihe simple language of the plain people.

Dear Brother Sullivan ;
In reply to your letter of recent
date I submit herewith my report.
I. This Lodge provided tran-por-
lation to and from a Hummer camp
tar over a hundred Camp Fire Girls
' and their guardians and baggage.
The cost for transporting baggage
was forty dollars and the girls were
taken in private cur* by individual
Elks, every cur being driven by an
Elk. This Camp was forty-two miles
from Orange. While the girls were
in Camp they wore treated to ice
cream by the Lodge, the same being
carried in an Elk automobile, tor. y-
two miles to camp, in addition, the
nocretary of the lodge, on full time
salary, spent ten days in camp with
, i the girls, ifi the capacity of assistant
•trimming instructor and life guard.
This has been done every summer
for Ihe past three years and during
thst time the secretary has rescued
five different girls who got in trou-
ble in the swift uliters ol the creek.
If yon don’t believe it is some uervo-
wrecking job to look after a bunch
’ of squealing girls in the swift wa-
ters of an East Texas crock, just try

was astonishing bow much real good
