clearly defines the constitutional lim

to supervise education. None of the
authority heretofore exercised is
abridged. But the right of parents
and.guardians in all other respects to
direct the education of their children
is unmistakably upheld.

The Methodist Women’s Home Mis-

9N THEIR CHIDLREN
"The child is not the mere creature
of the state.”
That is the principle enunciated by
the United States supreme court in
bedding that the Oregon law requiring
ail'children within certain age limits
to attend the public schools is uncon-
stitutional. It is a principle thorough-
ly Ln keeping with democratic insti-
tutions. In soviet Russia the child is,
In a very literal sense, ‘‘the mere crea-
ture of the state.” But in America the
.frtatie has been allowed to go no fur-
ther in the proprietary rights of par-
-euats than to say that the child shall
be given such training as wtll reason-
ably be calculated to make him a good
•citizen. This decision of the supreme
•court is assurance that the state never
will go any further as long as the con- j
atitution retains its present form.
' The Oregon case has attracted na-
tional attention because of its signi-
ficance as a precedent, and because of
the present tendency toward extreme
.otandardization in education. Had the
5Aw been upheld, it is highly probable
that other states would have followed
Oregon’s lead in demanding that all
children be given primary instruction
.ta public schools. Beyond that there
xg scarcely any limit to the require-
ments that might have been exacted,
• or -attempted, as a result of misguided
EX-KAISER TOURING EUROPE
INCOGNITO LONDON PAPER SAYS
LONDON, June 4—The ex-Kaiser is
traveling secretly about Europe and
almost succeeded in making a visit in-
cognito to London .according to “John
Bull,” a weekly paper.
‘‘The Kaiser has been in Germany
and Sweden since his exile, and only
an accident prevented his arrival in
this country,” says "John Bull.” “You
have to remember that he is in com-
plete ignorance of the real state of
feeling against him; and he actually
got as far as Harwich .traveling incog
nito, of course, before his intentions
were discovered and his movements
arrested. However, he has made up
his mind to visit us sooner or later.”
CHICKEN THEFT CONSIDERED
SERIOUS CHARGE IN OKLA.
By International NewB Service
NOWATA, Okla., June 3—When a
man is wanted on charges of stealing
chickens and jail breaking, he likely
is apt to take chances in order to
escape. This is what county officers
say of Allen, wanted on such charg-
es ,did when they surprised him in a
field near here recently. Although a
score of bullets were sent in Allen’s
direction, he dldi^’t hesitate to arbi-
trate the matter and made, good his

THAT POOR CAT
;j On many Application forms for Employment is this Ques-
DO YOU SAVE MONEY?
Importance of this question to the employer is that if
you have not learned to manage your own affairs, it is not
likely you - will be wanted to manage his.
It seems to be the feeling of all employers that if a
man cannot save for himself, it is hardly probable he can
save for them.
SAVE by depositing regularly in

“Your Electric Light Bill”
Electric Light Bill means something more than the invoice
you get every month. Electric Light Bill or Tom or Jerry
is the man behind that invoice, the man who gives in return
reliable service—and in good measure.
You can always count on Bill and his fellow-workers. Hard
at it night and day, they are the men who put up poles and
in stormy weather repair the wires, and at all times keep the
equipment in order.
This human side is the most important part of your electric
light and power company’s story. The machines may be
ever so efficient ,but that isn’t enough. Back of it all you
need human watchfulness and human dependability—a
trusty old Bill to man the guns.
