3. Harold Nixon, semipro ballplay-
er: That is quite a hard question to
answer, but I think that the four
greatest men, taken all around, by
and large, are Edison, Ford, Wright,
and Roosevelt. Of course there are a
lot of important men in Europe, but
I think that I've named the really out-
standing figures of the age.

see how Mr. Denby has been smirchod
by the oil that has stained so many
others. It is to the honor of Presi-

Government. Ile testifies that in Mex-
ico his work was to persuade President
Obregon to mitigate the severity of
the working of Article 27 of the M'dx-
ican Constitution-and that was en-I
tirely in accord with the policy of both
the Wilson and Harding administra-

But the turning of a comparatively
few votes from one party to another
may change the result of a presiden-
tial election. Politics is a jealous mis-
tress and he who courts the fickle!
jade must bear with her spasms of
morality as well as of caprice and
temper. The American people, fickle
as they may be in their political af-
finities, are blessed with a saving rem- F
nant whose deep-seated instincts com-
pel it to recoil with fear, if not with
horror, from all public men so un-
fortunate as to have been associated
even remotely with interests that cor-
ruptly sought the control of the Gov-
ernment's property for purposes of
plunder. These instincts are protect-
ive. A democracy feels its existence
threatened by the insidious approach-i
es of soulless money power, and it
may easily be shocked into panic by
clear evidences of the secret prosti-
tution of the honor of officials in the
highest public station.
If popular reactions under these!
circumstances do less than justice
to individuals, here and there, we can
only make the best of the situation and
still be thankful that these reactions
may be expected and depended upon.
