These 17 Democratic senators are recorded in the following language against third terms for President: "Resolved, thnt il is the sense of the senate that tho precedent established by Washington and other Presidents of the United States in retiring from the Presidential office after their second term has become, by universal concurrence, a part of our republican system of government, and that any departure from this time-honored custom would bo unwise, unpartiolic nnd fraught with perial to our free institutions." Alined At Coolldgc The resolution was adopted by the senate in 1928 as a moans of telling President Coolidgc how the members "ell on the subject. Coolidge already liad said: "I do not choose to run for President in 1928," but there was much uncertainly. Those Democratic senators now in office who voted thus against third terms are: Ashurst of Arizona, Barkley of Kentucky, the present majority lender, Copcland of New York, Gerry of Rhode Island, Glass of Virginia, Harrison of Mississippi, Hayden of Arizona, King of Utah, McKf-ller of Tennessee, Nccly of West Virginia, Pittman of Nevada, Shepparcl of Texas, Smith of South Carolina, Tydings of Maryland, Wagner of New York and Wheeler of Montana. The 17th is Senator George of Georgia, who paired but announced he was for tho resolution. Incidentally, two incumbent Republicans nnd « Democrat voted against the resolution. They nre Senators McNary and Steiwcr of Oregon, Republicans, uncl Walsh of Massachusetts, Democrat. Ashurst Bridges Unhurried Senator Ashurst hus already indicated his belief that President Roosevelt will not seek a third term. However, it was Ashurst who made a virtue of inconsistency in defending his quick switch to the President's side on the court bill after earlier deploring any idea of increasing the court member•ship. . "Inconsistency," he once said, "will save the United States yet." Coolidce had politicians really up a tree, but perhaps no more than President Roosevelt has now. In 1928 many believed that when Coolidge said he did not "choose" lo run, that it amounted to a complete withdrawal. Now there arc many who believe that when President Roosevelt snid he wanted to complete certain objectives in lime to turn his office over to a successor in 1941, he also had completely withdrawn. As in the case of Coolidge, however, no one has been «ble to say posi lively that the Presidcnl is out of the picture for 1940.

(Continued from Page One) has it under advisement. He made no reference to the specific proposals in the memorandum, itself, although at a subsequent press conference he discussed his conversation with the utility executive. On the question of property valuation—a point long at controvery between utility interests and the administration, and which is the basic factor in making rates for electric power—' Willkie suggested a formula containing concessions of far-reaching significance: 1. He proposed that utilities should eliminate at once from their capital structures all "write-ups" in properly value which heretofore have been alleged by the Federal Trade Commission; 2. He recommended acceptance of the "prudent investment" theory of valuation, as desired by the administration—which contemplates, as the Federal Power Commission views it, what was prudently and honestly invested in physical property —instead of present method, which takes into account the reproduction cost new. If Willkie's suggestion on "write- ups" were accepted by other utilities, it would mean scaling down of the utility industry's present capital structure of around 12 billion dollars- by almost 15 per cent. Purchase of Land (Continued from Page One) erty in the interim. "If the chancery courts do not set aside tlie.se titles," he said, "I believe the property owner can appeal to the supreme court and have the title reinvested in him." Mr. Page said the framers of the state constitution of 1874 purposely inserted about 42 technicalities in the section relating to lax-forfeited lands so thai il would be impossible lo tnke lands from owners merely because they were unable to pay taxes. "These men who framed the constitution had fought throughout the Civil war," he said. "Returning, they were so poor they were unable to meet their taxes. Carpetbaggers bought up these lands for speculative purposes at from one to five cents per acre." Should Monday's Supremo Court decision have the effect of invalidating confirmed land sales, the question arises as to whether fees paid to special attorneys to confirm the titles in the state would be legal. Attaches of the land office estimated that approximately $150,000 in fees have been paic out under provisions of Act 296 of 192! and Acl 119 to 1935. ^SNAPSHOT CUIL CHECK UP ON YOURSELF Do your summer prints show the care this one does—the deft framing of foliage, judicious placing of figures, strong shadows against brilliant highlights and full exposure for shadow detail? Will trimming them help, as trimming on the white line helps balance this picture? When you make a mistake, do you note it down, so you can avoid It In the future? It's a helpful idea. F ALL is a season for taking stock in many businesses. It. is also a good time for the amateur camora- man, after a busy summer, to take stock of himself and his work. Aro you improving? Are you taking better pictures now than yon •were six months or a year ago? Ami it not, why not? If, perchance, you aren't Improving as rapidly and steadily u.s you think you should, I'll venture this is the reason—you aren't studying your mistakes. The lirst spare hour you Iwvo, why don't you collect all your summer prints uud single out those that are bad—the portraits made in harsh sunlight with no provision for the shaded side o£ -the fate, ihu landscapes with dead foregrounds and no "framing" of trees or foliage, the prints that show blank white skies, without clouds or tone. Recall the scene, and then writ.: down on tho back of each print what you should have done to make the picture good. If you have a blank sky or very thiu clouds, noto down that you should have used a. filter. If a portrait has no detail on tlu> Bliady side, note that you should liavo used a reflector near tho face. on that side, even. If It \y»s uuly tt sheet of cardboard or .1 white picnic cloth spread in the sun. IE a landscape is dead, analyze it and recall the scene. Maybe by back l,ng up a little or moving to one side, you could have included a gracefully-curving tree branch fairly closa to the camera, to give the picture depth and a natural frame. Maybe by a change of position you could have included a path or a hedge th&l would lead the eye gradually across and into the picture. Write on. the back of the print what you should have done. Maybe you have child pictures In which backgrounds are mottled and confused, sticking up in meaulnglese fashion behind the subject. Another background, a change o£ viewpoint, might have mad» each picture perfect. Write down, what you should have done. After you have noted these mistakes, don't just stick the prints away and torget them. Use them as a reference file. Take a few out on j'our picture-making jaunts and be mindful of them whea uew picture chances arise. Learn what you do wrong—decido how to do it right—think before you shoot. Hera is one of the secrets of picture-making success. John van Guilder. Trees do not grow by stretching and lengthening their limbs; fence wires stapled to growing trees remain the same distance from the ground. Shakespeare used the lines "Neither a borrower nor a lender be" in his play, Hamlet." Texas contains more sulphur deposits than any other state in the union. Washington, Madison, Jackson, Polk, Buchanan, and Harding were the only American president who had no children. County Unit Plan Rebuffed in Court Lower Court Invalidates Tennessee's Thrust at Shelby NASHVILLE, Tenn.-W^eruiessee's county unit primary law, which has the effect of reducing the influence of Shelby county (Memphis) In Democratic pribaries, received a court setback Tuesday when Chancellor R. B. C. Howell held it "was not passed Validly." The law was enacted at an extra legislative session called after Governor Gordon Browning and E. H. Crump, leader of the Shelby county political organization, had severed their alliance. It limits a county's unit vote t oone-eighth of one per cent of its population, Under this restriction Shelby county's unit vote represents a popular vote of 38,400, as compared with the 60,752 recorded in last year's gubernatorial primary. Browning-backed by Crump then—received 59,814 of those. Declaring that six representatives who supported the unit bill in the legislature had "vacated their offices" by accepting other political positions, Chancellor Howell granted a temporary injunction restraining the Democratic State Executive Committee from •jolding a primary. Twenty-nine Shelby county voters and taxpayers had asked for the injunction pending adjudication of their action attacking the unit law on constitutional grounds. Defense lawyers announced an appeal would be taken to the supreme court from the chancellor's action in overruling a demurrer that contended the law is constitutional.
