Our Country Must Be

United

IN this time of unprecedented national peril and world peril, America must be strong I with the strength of unity-one nation. America must be bound together, as it is

today, not so much by the machinery of Government, as by Ideas, held in common by all and fully exchanged, so that all the people throughout the country may understand and sympathize with one another. This is what has brought this great nation together and holds it together.

This result has been accomplished primarily by the Press-particularly the weekly and monthly periodicals and business papers. These periodicals have not local or sectional bias; they go to all parts of America, and serve all parts alike; their great service is in helping to bring all sections close together into one great nation, through a common understanding,

York. 84. Next to Wyclif, “ the morning star of the Reformation," ranks the illustrious Wessel as a precursor of Luther. The authors of these volumes have redeemed from long forgetfulness a theologian greatly admired by Luther. Luther's famous theses assailed the abuse of Papal indulgences. Wessel attacked the system itself as unscriptural and harmful to morality. His attitude was distinctly Protestant, holding to the Bible as the supreme authority in religion, and to Christ rather than the Pope as giving unity to the Church. In his view of the sacraments he anticipated the most radical of the Reformers. À biography of Wessel introduces the estimate of him as a herald of the Reformation. Fol. lowing this the more significant of his writings are here for the first time translated from their original Latin.

America must not be Split into

a half-dozen Sections Weak with the ILLS and EVILS of Sectionalism

But such a disastrous result is not only possible, but probable, unless the present law pertaining to second-class postag is repealed before it goes into effect. Postal legislation was enacted in the present Revenue Bill, which divides the country up into “zones" and increases the average carrying charge upon magazines and periodicals from 50 to 900 per cent.

These nation-binding periodicals are confronted with certain injury and destruction—which means loss to you personally and loss to your country. It will destroy a large part of the periodicals. You will be deprived of the magazines that have kept you informed on your country's problems, that have helped you in your work. Your children will lose the cl an publications that have entertained and helped educate them. And eventually, such magazines as do survive will cost you much more.

The Post Office Department has never been considered a money-making institution. It was established, as was the Department of Agriculture, for the benefit of the people. There is no deficit to make up, therefore

The author is at the head of the Department of English Language and Literature in the University of Illincis. He here discusses freely and unconventionally what he considers " the requisites of sound literature” in different periods, using the work of individual authors to bring out his own views. These can be best indicated here by quoting two or three of his extremely interesting titles. Thus we have “ The Democracy of Mark Twain,” “The Utopian Naturalism of Wells," "The Æsthetic Idealism of James,” “ The Æsthetic Naturalism of Moore,” “ The Barbaric Naturalism of Dreiser,” and so on.

No increase is necessary. Last year the Post Office Department earned a surplus of nearly $10,000,000

The Post Office was never intended as a tax-gathering institution. It was basically designed to give service to the people-to all the people at the same rate. The Publishers are not trying to evade taxation. They will gladly accept any rate of tax upon their profits that may be levied. Most of them have gone on record as being willing to turn over to the Government their entire net profits for the period of the war.

This is the time of all times when America must be a united America-one nation strong with the strength of unity. Let your influence be used to that end and write to your Senator and Representative in Congress urging them to vote for the repeal of this law, which, unless repealed by the present Congress, will go into effect on July 1st. Every such letter will help.

On the farm, motor trucks carry soil, fertilizer, garden tools, and farm products. They also haul shrubbery, plants, trees, and cattle. In an emergency the power of the truck can be used to drive an electric generator or water pump, to pull a plow, or operate a threshing machine. Formerly the operations that are now possible with a single truck required several pieces of special machinery that aggregated a heavy financial investment. Large estate owners

A motor truck with a specially designed body containing all the conveniences of an office and protected against highway ban dits is used by the Chicago surface railway lines to carry the pay envelopes of thousands of their employees to car barns and other widely scattered districts.

In some cases the truck merely transports paymasters and large sums of money from one car barn to another. In others trips of several miles are made into the country to pay off line and track men and gangy engaged in special construction work, such as the building of new bridges, tunnels, buildings, and general track improvements."

The truck has accommodations for four paymasters, a chauffeur, and a guard, all of whom go heavily armed. The paymasters are provided with swivel chairs and work at tables which hang on hinges and may be dropped down when not in use. The table in the center of the office, as shown in the accompanying photograph, is used for making up pay-rolls while the truck is en route, and within easy reach on either side are shelves for money trays. The windows are protected by iron bars and connected with an alarm system.

In paying direct from the truck the chief paymaster sits at the extreme end of the office, takes the pay envelopes from the shelf, and passes them out to the workmen through a wicket in a window on his left. While the men are receiving their money the guard stands on duty in the rear of the office and the chauffeur guards the front. When the truck is traveling through the streets, all money and other valuables are carried in a special steel vault built in the body of the truck behind the rear seat.

Many of the trucks sold in this part of the country are driven overland from fifty to three hundred miles and delivered to the owners. They are driven directly across country where often not even a trail shows the way. Of course no supplies can be procured en route, so extra cans of water and gasoline must be carried.

Satisfying the taste of the movie”. going public for frequent changes of programmes has speeded up the duties of the film producers, necessitating outdoor motion-picture photography at night. At first the problem of proper lighting caused the producers considerable inconvenience, because at many outdoor locations where motion pictures are made at night there are no near-by electric lines that can be tapped for current. The Vitagraph Company of America was the first to solve this problem successfully by providing a portable lighting system, consisting of an electric generator mounted on a five-ton motor truck. This outfit can supply sufficient light for the filming of night scenes in the largest productions, and the truck, because of its ability to travel over any kind of roads, can reach any desired spot.

The body of the truck is van-like in shape and divided into two compartments. One incloses a dynamo of 218 amperes and a voltage of 120. The rear compartment has a five-cylinder marine engine of 50 horse-power and a speed of 750 revolutions per minute. On each side of the driver's seat are vertical tube radiators to cool the water of the marine-engine circulating system. The body is fireproof inside and insulated from the chassis by rubber mats. The current supplied by the generator is carried by wires to as many of the regular indoor studio arcs as are necessary.
