If one is going to be careful, he should avoid even the appearance of evil, and so the question of whether corn pone should be dunked or crumbled will have to be pretty well along toward a settlement before we cast out our lot with either side, at least far enough along so that we know which side is going to win. We then turned our attention to the Mussolini and the Butler case. Here is a question that we could open up on and express an opinion, on which it is reasonable to suppose there would be a unanimity of opinion. Hen.

We made up as well that we let it lie. If Prohibition were a settled issue, our mind last week to refrain from taking any position on any matter until we found out how everybody else thought on the matter. The fear of losing a subscriber of a two line want ad keeps us awake pights and we have concluded if we are to get any rest, we have to be careful and as nearly as possible straddle all ques- tions until we find out what all the people think. We believe if this is done. no one will be offended and the unpleasant features connected with expressing an opinion at variance with those things that are accepted unanimously, will, be avoided. Our first thought was that we would write a paragraph on the in- come tax, and mildly, ever so mildly and gently suggest that if everyone was willing, and no objections could be found, and that the law was made so that no one would have to pay any tax except Andrew Mellon and Henry Ford, that an income tax law should be passed. It occurred to us however, just in time, that Mr. Mellon might not like this and if Henry Ford heard that we were for the income tax, we wouldn't get any more Ford advertisements. It is of course clear that we can not say anything about the income tax. Feeling that our efforts should be directed toward some matter of pub- lic interest and importance we consid- ered seriously the matter of taking a hand and announcing our stand in a firm, courageous, positive manner on a question that is rapidly securing na- tional attention and interest, namely: "Should corn pone be dunked or crumbled." Our only idea in plunging into an issue so vital with all the hazards that such an outspoken announcement of our position would entail was that here is a question on which the pub- lic was seeking light and virile lead- ership. Here was an opportunity to settle a controversy that threatens to! I We next took up the matter of the ground hog. Is the ground hog a reliable weather prophet? If the ground hog came out on the date scheduled for his appearance, did he see his shadow? If he saw his shad- ow, how come we have the same brand of weather with which we have been blessed the entire winter? If he did not see his shadow what was he doing on that day: Our inform- ants agree unanimously that the sun shown brightly all day arid the ground hog, if he came out and looked to the leeward, saw his shadow unless he is stone blind. It is possible that he overslept. These things happen in other families and why not in the ground hog family. At first this appeared to be a splen- did topic. A topic upon which one might extend himself and champion the cause of the doubters of the ground hog theory and restore them to their place in the sun. I We had the paragraph two-third: written when we chanced to mention it to an aquaintance and he express.d a doubt, a faint doubt that we were on the right track. Of course this ended the matter and two hours effort was consigned,to the waste basket. We then concluded definitely that such paragraphs as we would indite this week would be confined to obser- vations regarding the arrival of the robins, and the red birds, the pre- cocity displayed by sprouting tulips and the low price of eggs. These carefully handled should enable us to avoid conflict and not tread on any toes, as we feel that these are ques- tions concerning which all contrary argument exhausted, and upon which the mind of all is clearly a unit. Thinking over the things that we are thankful for, the first one on the list is that notwithstanding the spring- l like weather that has prevailed all winter, the crop of original poetry has remained light. the country could go deeper into other pressing problems. If Prohibition were settled neigh- bors would be more neighborly, and many hours spent in arguing the question could be profitably employ- ed in useful activities. If Prohibition were settled the great political parties could devote their attention to political economy and good government; they would de- vote the time of their conventions to the selection of nominees independ- ently of the crying issue of Prohi- bition. If Prohibition were settled the United States government, and state and county and city governments would save in the aggregate millions upon millions of dollars annually spent to enforce it. If Prohibition were setted, propa- gandists on both sides would have to find other jobs. If Prohibition were settled it would no longer be the subject of l joke, or praise, of criticism, of pray- er, of heated discussion, and every- body would be just a little happier than everybody is now.
