EVENING
We opened our mail the other
morning, and found this letter from
a Detroit paste company, singing
the saga of the paste much in the
manner of Carl Sandburg:

We are supplying a very smooth
paste for the mailing room. The
number of newspapers ordering
our paste is continually grow-
ing.
This paste is very smooth and
a wonderful sticker.
We are putting this paste up in

dering a tub of it just to see the

might add, in case there is a copy-
right, that we are indebted for the

"Mipco," in case you're interested,,
seems to be composed mainly from'
the initials of the company. It had

cause logically it should be Mpmc,
if you'll pardon the whooflism. But
they couldn't fool us long. Still,
we are a little bit doubtful about

every thinking person knows it or
suspects it. RED MENACES are
worked up in the popular mind for
the purpose of getting politicians
into office. "Give me my job, and
I'll protect you from the RED MEN-
ACE," says the politician. He gets
the job, and sets out to enforce
parking laws or outlaw boll weev-
ils. The RED MENACE is forgotten
by him and by the public until the
next campaign comes along.
Communist agitators want an-
other form of government, but they
want it peacefully. And when it
comes, as it may, it will develop di-
rectly from tremendous trusts-
which are the backbone of capital-
ism. Communism-supposing its
advent-would become the rule as
small private enterprise is forced
out. And there will be no strug-,x
gle, no invasion of Russian myriads.'
The revision will be within the con-
stitution, which allows for a change
of government by legal methods.
The previously mentioned edi-

does there should be the withheld'
quality, implying that perfection is
undesirable. That permits lesser
men to prove their inferiority by
the excellence which is their super-
iority, and it gives dilettanteism an
otherwise unattainable merit. It
is placed above competition, which
would destroyit.
, These standards protect gentility
from the law of gravitation. Even
if the gentlemen flyers have hard
work in getting off the ground they
will have the most distinguished
flights and they will be protected
from grueling competition to which
the pecuniary rewards always sub-
ject their honest seekers.
