The peace of the evening was broken with terrible cries of distress. There were warnings and ahrieks from the treetops and the reason no mortal could guess.

As the sole and proper foundation ot self-respect, wealth commends itself only to Hie unthinking and the simple. There is another and better foundation, available to all.

It consists in being respectable. Consider the engineer of a locomotive. He has no wealth, but he is content with himself and his world. He feels at ease in the presence of the rich and the great. His job is necessary and useful; he is a trained man not easily replaced; he knows his worth to the world, demands and receives respect, and therefore respects himself.

He isn't unhappy without wealth because he doesn't feel Inferior without it. You can enter any community in America, except the resorts of the social elect, and win universal respect simply by working at your job, speaking the language of intelligent and -well-informed people, and behaving like one who respects himself and takes it for granted that the world will respect him as well. If that were not true, middle-class people would be uniformly miserable. The first essential is to deserve your own Rood opinion. Once that Is achieved, you can face the world without misgivings and no mere money loss can break your spirit.

But, until the President lets it be known how he would make over the government, it is idle for the junior senator, or any one else, to discuss the subject.

Little was done for the former, who were allowed to remain at large the Department of Law which manages and, as it has been since the law-was passed, makes the law. The Governor, the auditor of state and the attorney general are the members of this department and as the Governor appoints his attorney general, under the law it is plain 'to 'see where this set-up could work a great hardship for the people. Before this law was passed the Lieutenant Governor had a salary of $1,000 a year as president of the state Senate. When this law was passed he was placed in four of the departments of government and his salary-was increased to $6,000 a year and he was furnished a secretary at a salary of over $3,000 a year and a clerical force of over one hundred persons, and expenses which the Indiana taxpayers pay for and for which they have not received a nickel's reward.

The other angle of the proposition is this: The constitution of Indiana, Sec. 9. Art. II. provides that no person shall 'hold more than one lucrative office at the same time.

The constitution also provides that the salary of no officer shall be increased during the term for which he is elected. To cover this defect the Legislature of 135, page 1215, passed a law "relieving all officers from liability who in good faith had illegally taken money from the state" under these various unconstitutional statutes that I am writing about. Although this "forgiving statute" of 19S5 undertook to relieve these various officeholders from liability, I maintain that the Legislature can not relieve any one from liability who received money under a law that was unconstitutional, and that a legislative act to legalize such a law does not make it so. It is a moral proposition that the Legislature could not change or DEFENDS THE AAA. To the Editor of The IndicnpoUt Star; I have read from letters contributed to The Star column by a Mr.

Maddox. He asserts that the farmers are being socialized and in the end will be gypped out of their land by the government. A tariff tax paid by the people and which increased the industrialists' income, and highly protected business was not socializing the big interests. To return the income tax paid by the wealthy was not socializing this group, but to give the farmer a break was socializing the farmer. He admits that the packer did not pay the processing tax he is trying to get back, but he is mistaken when he says the consumer pays it.

The increased price reduced consumptive demand which in turn lowered the price paid to the producer. The drought is responsible for the high-priced pork. Millions of pigs were sold immature because of feed shortage. The high-priced feed and low-priced pork trrove the pork producer out of business and the people are suffering because of high pork prices. By slaughtering off a large number of pigs the remaining portion went to market with enough greater weight to offset the slaughter and the public was furnished a better grade of pork than if the entire number had been sent to market in a poor, immature condition, for there was not a sufficient amount of feed raised for all.

BY KIRKE SIMPSON.

WASHINGTON As chairman of the House committee on appropriations during the "new deal" regime, Representative James Buchanan of Texas is presumed to know something about future spending plans of the government and how the bills already contracted are to be met. He has been around Congress a long time, even though his official account of himself is limited to the admission that he is a Democrat of Brenham, Tex. If he were not an appropriations committee senior, he would not be chairman. When Mr. Buchanan elects to risk an estimate as to when an actual budgetary balance may be reached, therefore, his position and experience warrant attention to his words.

And the following expectation was drawn from him in a recent House debate by an incidental question: "I firmly believe that, with the $270,000,000 to be raised by the new tax bill, with the payments due on money heretofore loaned by various government departments, with a reduction in the enormous working balance in the Treasury, we can pass through the next Congress without any additional taxation or without the issuance of any additional bonds or increasing the national debt, except to cover appropriations heretofore made." "Does the gentleman mean the Seventy-fifth Congress or the next session of the Seventy-fourth Congress?" asked Fiesinger of Ohio. "I mean the next session of the Seventy-fourth Congress and future Congresses," answered Buchanan, and House Democrats applauded, while Republicans sniffed in scorn at the prediction. -i- -j- Buchanan may be overoptimistic about that. The results of the work-relief recovery drive and of the effort to shift the relief of unemployables from Federal taxpayer shoulders are still to be demonstrated. Buchanan may not have considered what the Senate vote next January on the pay-t he-bonus bill might bring about for the Treasury.

Secretary Mor-genthau, wariest of cabineteers at committing himself on any budget-balancing question, has been carelul all along with warnings about any expenditures outside the White House program. Nevertheless. Buchanan is on record as at least believing an actual balanced budget can be attained next session with income meeting both ordinary and emergency outgo. That is a pretty plain indication that he has heard no whispers of new and costly recovery or reform ventures for next session. It implies that the Treasury then may be prepared to reduce its current rash balanre which consistently has been held so high as to protect it against any emergency.

It implies, also, that in the minds of Democratic party strategists planning for the next oresidential cam- sane asylums. Cases of mental illness should receive the same care provided for victims of any disease. Neither reason nor justice condones the erroneous attitude that mental patients are a family disgrace to be shunted into the skeleton closet. They are entitled to whatever care the community can supply, provided means for private treatment are lacking. Officials of our governmental units are besieged with numerous demands for money, some of which may be well-founded.

They can not grant every request. There are activities, however, which should be curtailed or eliminated altogether before the psycopathic ward for mental victims is abandoned. If properly administered, it should be a permanent part of the public health service. When the time came for the family to start back to Indiana, the father had injured his hand between two flat stones and could not work but must carry it in a sling. "He finally contracted with a young man named Rudolph Fry to come to this country and drive the wagon and come as one of the family.

This made seven instead of six to occupy the wagon. "I think it was sometime in April when we made the start. When we moved to Virginia it was fall, bu now it was spring and where there was no pike the roads were awful. We came bacK from Virginia with a few exceptions, the same way we went. When we reached the I river cliffs, or 'Hawk's Nest' as it called, father had the wagon stoi and driven to one side of the ro.i i.

All of us that were big eno -gli io walk got out and we walked do to the brink as near as it wa-j safu to go. This is a projecting tending as far out as the river n-vl is said to be one thousand feet hig i. We could look over by holding io some 'bushes and see the foaming and hear the roaring of the river p.s it plunged over the rocks. Son-e have said that the scenery is in some respects as great as that of Niagara. I came by this place when last in Virginia but don't think the cliff is so great as it is reported.

We found that nearly every little stream had to be ferried. Most of the streams were high on account of the spring rains and at the Kanawha river the mud was so deep and the horses so fagged that the party had to stop and rest awhile. Here the father said he would get a steamboat on which to go to Cincinnati, but the steamboat paid no attention to his signals. They had often to be dragged out of mud holes by oxen, but finally arrived in Clinton county, Ohio, and stopped awhile at Grandfather Knox's home. -r -T- "Here father decided to take the National road, which we hoped would be better.

After reaching a section of the country called the Black Swamps we found the roads almost impassible. At one place the roadbed was covered with water for a quarter of a mile." He described their difficulties, hiring, an ox team to pull them through the water, the balky horse, the breaking up of the wagon tongue finally they were through and in Johnson county again. "You are welcome to stay as long as you please." said Grandmother Brunnemer. We had traveled 1.000 miles. Father was satisfied to remain here, but would always say there are no people like the legalize any more than it could le- the Sabbath, and the father of W.

J. Knox, some of whose recollections have appeared in this column, was one of these. However, during that cold winter of 1S39-1840 in Virginia, he cut w-ood on Sunday for "it is either cut wood or freeze," he said. The fire did duty for candles, too. "We were scarce of money and could not afford candles," says Mr.

Knox, "so we would take buckets and the women, aprons, and Mother would lead the way for she was well acquainted with the mountain, and go out for a mile or two and gather pine knots and then all we had to do was to put them on the fire and they would burn like tar. Then father would read 'Pilgrim's Progress' to us. This book was appropriate for us, for Pilgrim was a constant mover. "This Teter's mountain was a spur of the Allegheny mountains. It was several thousand feet high in places and covered mostly with pine trees.

We were there when the great flood occured. My brother and I were down on the brink of the river when it seempd to flow the other way. The rivr was, frozen almost to the bottom. We were looking up stream. No rise as yet.

All of a sudden there was a crack as loud as a gun. The great thick ice would rear up on end, the cakes, many of them, as large as a house. The ice had given away above it, had just reached here, only a short distance from our house. We tan to the house and all hurried to the river. It rose at a rapid rate.

It covered all the bottoms all along the river. To see the grinding ice gorges as they came down was a sight I have never seen since. All the boats, canoes, skiffs and everything along its banks were swept away. When it came it gave no time tn save anything. A wild deer, a buck with horns, was caught and left in a drift near our house.

Mother took the hams and the meat was as good as any venison ever eaten. Everything was frozen, so that meat would keep sweet a month." Food was scarce, so they did not complain of a sameness of diet. He tells of his father setting a fish trap in the river once that winter. "In the morning, he called us into the smokehouse and ponred out the contents of the sack about fifty ells. Of all the flopping! We had eels nearly all winter and they were as good as bass and no bones." tliink the President should answer galize murder.

XJEYV YORK city, as the leading port of entry for foreigners, is unusually susceptible to agitation by alien groups. The metropolis has been annoyed repeatedly and the entire country made indignant by the bombastic character of propaganda and demonstrations. The attitude of the Hitlerites at home has been duplicated to a considerable extent by that of sympathizers in this country.

The German government's officials in the United States are particularly obtuse in failing to appraise the damage thus created. Americans may be displeased by extremes of the Nazis, yet they are broad-minded enough to refrain from meddling in Germany's domestic affairs. It is another matter entirely when the Hitler supporters make American soil the sene of demonstrations. Groups with foreign attaohments may retain their sympathetic ties with home lands, but any political activity of an alien character should be suppressed. There should be no place for the League of Friends of New Germany, an organization which only intensifies American feeling toward the Hitler regime.

These Nazis staged a demonstration at a camp they own near New York city, renewing allegiance to the political and economic creed of the present German system. There was much heel clicking in the militaristic fashion of 1914 and. incidentally, a determination to give America the questionable blessings of the Nazi program. A number of deputy sheriffs tore swastika banners from cars which did not also display the American flag. The Nazis may go to any extremes at home, that a downtrodden people permits, but they should be prohibited from using American soil for their political propaganda.

That Guffey bill can accomplish more wonders than a patent cure-all. In addition to soaking the consumer, it tosses a sop to the coal miners and permits another brain trust swat at the constitution. itiHf be golden, but in this case silence is giving strength to the suspicion that the charges are true. As far as I am concerned, I am convinced that the new deal is a cunningly devised plan to socialize or communize the United States, but there is still a possibility that the President does not realize that fact. And it is possible that "the President is in the stream of revolutionary action and can't get out," as the "state executive-administrative act." and never before was su-h power given to any one man under a constitutional form of government as was given to the Governor of Indiana by this law.

The King of England does not possess such powers. I am glad that Senator VanNuys is one man in high office of the Democratic party who says this law must be repealed. Even after it is repealed it will take many years to heal the wounds made bv this iniquitous law. H. H.

EVANS. State Representative. Newcastle. Ind. MOTOR TRAFFIC HAZARDS.

GOVERNOR McNUTT cited several leading haz-ards which confront motorists on Indiana highways. In his weekly radio address he urged co-operation of citizens and law-enforcement agencies in the safety campaign which has been inaugurated by the state police force. The average driver is familiar with the recklessness which contributes to so many accidents. High speed in congested traffic, failure to exercise proper caution at grade crossings, taking curves at an excessive rate which forces the car into the other traffic lane and reckless weaving in and out of motor queues are the reasons for many casualties. Two other factors mentioned by the Governor have been responsible for many automobile tragedies.

One is failure to dim lights. The other is the menace of the slow driver the "creeper" who causes needless congestion on main highways.
