At this season of year when schools over the country are about to hold graduation exercises we are rsminded of the importance that is attached to the educational side of every boy and girl's life. After several years of aJtlfful study and considerable sacri- rice the graduates are about to com- Plete their first milestone---the step- ping stone to a higher and broader education that will fit them as leaders in the business, commercial and social World that is awaiting their call. It would not be amiss to say that to become graduated from a high school, while in itself an honor, should not terminate the school life of those wro are completing this work- No one, perhaps, can best realize the im- portance of an education of a higher degree than the young men who were brought into one hugh mass at the call of the government during the war, where party lines, family tradi- tion, wealth and social standing was cast in the back-ground and the para- znount consideration to the individual's success depended entirelv upon the oe question, chiefly--"What has been the extent of ),our education? Were You graduated from a high school? VV'hat University did you attend and 'hen did you complete the course taken ? Capability of instructing oth- er men, leading them to battle' where the lives of many of their comrades depended upon the alertness of mind, gained thru education, was the de- sire of the government in the "weed- hag out" process of the millions of American citizens that were assem-- bled overnight. What was true of the methods em- ployed during the war is equally true ha everyday life, only the distinctive- nes of it is not ahvays as noticeable. Of course all cannot become teachers, Professional men, commercial men, ministers and doctors. , Someone must do the other work, that there are al- Ways plenty who will. THE INSURANCE THAT LAPSED. A World War veteran died at the age of twenty-six in a Middle West- ern city a month ago leaving his wid- ow and his baby son to face the World without funds. He had per- trfitted his War Risk Insurance policy to lapse several months before his death and he had never renewed it. The most poignant fact about this tragedy is taat had this ex:service man only known, he could have rein- stated his insurance policy wlaile he was waiting for death. He could have arranged for his family to receive $10,000, the amount of the policy on which he paid premiums during the war. He had been seriously ill for a year, suffering from a disease whose earli- est symptoms had developed during his eighteen months in France. The regulations governing both War Risk term insurance and converted insur- ance provide that if a person is suf- fering with a disease or injury incur- red in or aggravated by active mili- tary or naval service during'the World War, he may reinstate his poli- cY, provided that he is not totally and Permanently disabled, by the pay- ment of all premiums in arrears, to- gether with interest at the rate of 5. per cent per year compounded an- nually from the date of each prem- ium. This provision, reember, applies to men who are suffering fro disease or injurymen'who were refused new policies or reinstatements by private insurance companies. It should be noted, however, that reinstatements of term or converted insurance may not be made after a man is totally and permanently disabled. Men in good health are not required to pay up all back premiums---they need on- pay prenuums" covenn" two  .... g months nave their insurance reinstated. Ordinary prudence dictates the nee= .essity of every ex-service man know- mg just what his government insur- ance rights are. 600,000 veterans a r e n o w carrying government policies. How many of the remaining 4,000,000 veterans, who once held Policies but let them lapse, do not kow their own rights?American Legion Weekly.

OLISEN'S CANDIDACY." ; Mrs. Olesen has been selected by i the Democrats of Minnesota as their! candidate for the United States Sen- ate. It is a most fortunate selection t for the party and for the state. She I has every qualification necessary for I the place and will, as a representative I in the Senate, give voice to the high- est aspirations, the noble purposes, and the largest interests of the peo- ple of Minnesota. Her ability as a public speaker is a vahtable asset to any cause that she espouses. She has excellent judg- ment in the weighing of arguments and rare power in the presentation of them. Her speeches will be a credit to Democracy and to womanhood. But what is more prized is her there grasp of the fundamental prin- ciples of Democracy, the breadth ofi her sympathies and her moral cour-i age. The test of a public servant is l fidelity to the masses and that fideli-i ty rests upon an intelligent understand- 'i ing of what is best for all and a con- scientmus devohon to their welfare at all times. She has both the under- standing and the conience, and tel these is added an exceptional power l of expression. We have great problems before us" and on every one of these her atti- tude is unassailable. No matter what l issue may be paramount in the cam- paign, whether equity in taxation, pro- tcction from predatpry wealth, en- forcement of the law, or world peace, she is a champion of the plain people and they should rally to her support. Success to Mrs. Olesenher victory will be a triumph for the producers of wealth.W. J. Bryan. ! Arnold Hasslen returned to school Monday after a weeks absence on ac- count of illness.
