One thing which has been stimulat-
ed by hard times is education. The
enrollment at the colleges and other
institutions of an educational charact-
er is greater than ever before and at
the same time there are more students
working their way through such places
than ever before. .Nearly all the in-
stitutiohs are making special efforts

You Know ’Em
We found a new world in a. little
magazine a few days ago that ap-
pealed to us. The world is “Yesbut-

to a proposition, are in favor of it
—•‘Oh. yes, but—” Don’t you know
them and. isn’t their name legion?
Speak of wet blankets, dashes of cold

probably have one in tl^e bosom of

claim that the number of profiteers
in this country aggregates 150,000, He
hasn't caught a single one so far. He

Patriotism is one of the noblest vir-
tues. W'hile the word refers strictly
to love of country, yet a similar sen-
timent ought to be manifested toward
one’s borne community, Towns and
cities need more of the spirit of en-
thusiasm and Loyalty which makes the
of a school or college root for
their athletic teams and cheer them
on to victory.
A spirit of local jpatriotism is need-
ed in community life. There should
be something of the same sentiment
and people should manifest it by zeal
that leads an athletic team to spend
many days in fatiguing practice, so
hat it can maintain the reputation of
its school. And love of country
should become most intense when it
come down to one’s home community,
in community service.
When a town gets a touch of such
spirit, nothing can stay its progress.
People owe this feeling to their home
town, since their welfare and hap-
piness come largely from the com-
munity in which they make their

When Edward Bellamy. 35 years ago
wrote his fascinating prophecy, “Look-
ing Backward” from the year 2.000,
poorOe gashed at his daring while ap-
preciating bis imagination. In one as-
tounding chapter the “Rip Van Wink-
le” of the- narrative is taken to the
music, room where he is asked to make
known bis choice from a very long
24-hour, music program. He indicates
an organ piece: his hostess “made me
sit down comfortably.aurl. crossing the
room «o fnr as I could see. merely
touched on-' or two screws, and at once
fhn room wfs filled with the music of
a grand o”gan anthem.”
Such an incredible prophecy that the
Bol'amv work was cl-ssified in the M-
bna-vies as “fiction:” and so speedily
has emootifle development occurred
that in ma»v libraries it is still “fic-
tion ” Tor this is.only 1922. not 2.000.

iles an hour—a relentless grind
over a- rough-finished, sun-baked concrete and brick
pavement at record-breaking speed—that is the gruelling
test Oldfield Cord Tires underwent successfully at Indian-
apolis Speedway May 30th. They were on the winner’s
car for the third successive year and on eight of the ten
finishing in the money, upholding the confidence success-
ful race drivers have in the trustworthiness and ability of
these tires to meet the greatest-demands of speed, endur-
ance and safety, fi.heir records In every other important
race have been equally as good. ,
Consider this achievement along with anotheroest of Oldfield
quality made at Wichita, Kansas, this past winter and early
34,525 miles on rutted, icy Kansas roads, running day
and night on a Studebaker stock car without a single tire
change. This test was made by a group of Wichita auto-
motive dealers in a tire, oil and gasoline economy run.
Mayor Kemp of Wichita was official observer and made
affidavit to the mileage and service given by Oldfield tires.
