THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, JULY 25, 1913.
GOV. HODGES TO
Kansas Executive Favors the
ADVICE TO MERCHANTS.
Good Roads and Graded Schools and
an Awakening of the Small Town
Merchant to"1 His Neglected Oppor
tunities the Governor's Program "Get
Together" His Motto.
Governor Hodges of Kansas is going
to devote a good deal of his time in tlio
remainder of bis administration to
work out plans whereby the life of the
farmer may be made bo attractive that
there will bo no need for a "back to
the farms" movement in Kansas at
least. The first step In this plan Is the
organization of community centers, the
next Is good roads, the next is graded
schools in the country districts, and
then he "would have tIo country mer
chants advertise that every Interest Id
the community may bo built up.
"This administration Is using its best
endeavors to build up community cen
ters, better rural schools and local mar
kets for the products of Kansas," the
governor said In n recent Interview.
"The "back to the farm' movement Is
the wrong end to begin work on. Ev
ery state should have a system of good
roads, with big township schools that
teach domestic science, agriculture and
fit students for normal training work.
The school should be made so attrac
tive and so good that It would not be
necessary for the agriculturist to go to
town with his family to procure an
education for them.
Brains Needed For Success.
"The freest, the truest and the best
life is the agriculturist's life. It takes
the same brain, however, to be a suc
cessful farmer that it docs to bo a suc
cessful banker or professional man,
and our farmers are now awakening
to the fact that good roads, communi
ty interest centers and graded country
schools are solving the problem, and
when we haw community centers,
good roads and country schools in a
high degree of efficiency there will bo
no 'back to the farm' movement, for
there will then bo no incentive or de
sire to leave the farm.
"I believe it is of vital interest to the
agriculturist to keep the small towns
in a prosperous condition, but the rea
son for the decline of the small town
Is from the fact that the merchants do
not advertise their wares, together
with the prices, as well as an accurate
description of the stock that they han
dle, whilo, on the other hand, the
mall order houses haw a big, high
priced catalogue in the hands of ev
ery man throughout the country. This
is a constant advertisement of their
wares, the description nnd prices are
then known, and a family that wishes
to buy some article looks at the cata
logue and at once takes it up with tho
mail order house.
"A mail order house, with its expen
sive buildings, high priced ground,
enormous rent, high priced officers, in
terest and a score of other necessary
expenses, makes his overhead expense
enormous, while, to the exact contrary,
the country merchant, with a very mi
nor expense account, can be a strong
competitor of the mall order house if
he will only set himself to tho task of
presenting his stock for tho considera
tion of the customers by strong, clear,
lucid, honest advertisement.
Merchants the Educators.

medium, but if that is not accessible

The farmer would much rather deal

Jacob Riis AVnnts Women's Help.
Jacob Riis, the famous philan
thropist and social reformer, has re
cently been again wrongly Included
among those opposed to Women Suf
frage. On July 11, therefore, Mr.
Riis wrote to Miss Amy Wren, a
Brooklyn lawyer and suffragist, as
follows: " No, I am not against
woman suffrage, and the enclosed
clipping from the Chicago Municipal
campaign of last March will tell vou'
why. I was once an antl, but I have
changed my mind. I want my sister
In the fight with me, because wo are
fighting for moral Issues and we need
her help." The Chicago clipping
mentioned by Mr. Riis includes the
following statement. "We want
women in this fight," he declared.
"Like a host of others, I once said:
"Woman's place Is in the home; let
her leave politics alone." And then
one day It dawned upon me that all
the things clean politics is reaching
out now a days to protect are sum
med up In that word 'home.' We
make war upon child labor, upon the
exploitation of women's work, on the
social evil; what are they all but
the enemies of the homes, In which
woman has the first and the deeD-
est Interest. We need her moral
backing, her moral fury when those
nearest and dearest to her are in
California Voters Xot Extravagant.
That tho women voters of Califor
nia are plunging the State into
bankruptcy is claimed by eastern op
ponents of woman suffrage. Cali-
tornia women have answered as fol
lows: (1) California is not on the
verge of bankruptcy. Its budget of
expense has increased because the
population is Increasing.
(2) Tho States where women do
not vote are very often threatened
(.5) Tho measures which the anti-
suffragists claim are extravagant
seem to tne California men and
women, who backed them in their
passage through the legislature, the
wisest sort of economy, as they will
savo many millions in punitive and
remedial measures. They are doing
everything they can, they say, to
keep the population of California in
health and to prevent Immorality.
rather than spend money on hospi
tals, asyiums, courts ana prisons.
Lieutenant Governor For Suffrage.
Lieutenant Governor O'Hara of
Illinois, is quoted as saying: "The
granting of votes to women is not
the work of any party. It is the out
come of the progressive tendencies
of the times. It is tho progressive
ness of the will of the people that
has given women tho right to vote.
Men that did not believe in woman
suffrage and did not want to vote
for it did so because they knew it
was political suicide not to do so."
Mr. O'Hara said that he saw a great
future ahead for the better govern
ment of Illinois now that women
had been given tho right to vote.
