Importance of Adult Education


I READ many articles concerning after–the–War problems, but all are vague and not wholly convincing. At one time we had here in Colorado a Populist Party. It was a party of protests and for a time prospered, but it withered away because it had no adequate programme. Some wit wrote: “A Populist is a man who doesn't know what he wants, but wants it damned bad.”
