tant in an Old Man's Endurance Hike

distance. The record he has to beat is

was ahead of time. If he covers the
distance in better than 160 days he is
rewarded with $3000 which Is the prize
olTered by Randolph Hearst of the
Hearst publicatiohs If not he hoes
not receive one cent A part of the
stipulations of the contest was that he
should leave New York City without a
cent of mono and that he was not to
beg borrow or steal anything along
the way to help him reach IiIb goal.
He is permitted to accept free-will of-
ferings and to let it be known that he
can accept such. Needless to soy this
office gave him n lift for any time an

The country does want It. The
people are hungry for more educa-
tion better education. They de-
mand better schools better teach-
ers better courses. Thoy have a
right to ask their Central Govern-
ment for help aid and support of
their own educational programs.
Tho people realize now as never be-
fore (with the World War so short
time In the past) that education
and only education can prevent
l-jllnr conflicts; that thiough edu-
cation comes peace plenty prosper-
ity and happiness and that wheio
is ignorance Is always misery
The Towner-Sterling bill Is not
n cure-all. But It does commit the
Nation as a Nation to education
to a wise policy of participation with
the dtates in making children Into
citizens worthy to bear tho franchise
and thus the states Into bodies poll-
tic worthy of their star In the flag
