But it is no longer necessary to tell whether can or corn sugar is used for sweetening. Physiologists in the field of nutrition say that it is just as healthy to eat sugar as cane sugar. The most common sugar medicine is glucose, or dextrose. Its chief value lies in the fact that it is absorbed rapidly and it does not require- special digestion.

Decorations Dazzling All stores were decorated with everything from ten-foot trees of white to tissue streamers that had already faded from red to orange.

An individual refusing to work because a job is vacant due to labor trouble, because wages, hours, or work conditions are worse than those prevailing in the locality, or because he would be required to join a company union or quit a labor union may not be denied compensatipn. Laws of New York. Wisconsin. Utah and the District of Columbia call for no contributions from employes. Others assess workers as well as em- employer. Laws of New York. New Hampshire, Washington and Utah apply to employers of four or more and that of the District of Columbia covers employers of one or more. The general rate of compensation a maximum payment of S15 a week and minimums as low as S5. Qualifications vary, but usually require that the applicant have been employed 26 of one or more, requires employer contributions of 1 per cent for 1936, 2 per cent for 1937, and 3 per cent thereafter, nnd provides a maximum contribution by the District of $175,000 in 1938.

The federal government went into the unemployment insurance field because states kept out of it on the theory that it would give employers in less progressive states n competitive idvantnge over their own. The Socin' Security Act provides uniformity of cost to employers per person employed. The act does nothing for those now unemployed. Some Employers Except Besides agricultural labor, exempted from the tax are employers of domestic servants, officers and crews, individuals employed by son, daughter or spouse, children under 21 employed by parents, public employes, and employes of nonprofit institutions. Criticisms of the Unemploymen -Compensation plan stress its duplication of taxes, the confusion sure to result from varying state systems, its failure to use federal income taxation for financing, the likelihood of administrative complications, and the fact that the federal government stands to make a profit.

For instance, a car that develops'100 horsepower at sen-level, has only 82 horsepower at nn altitude of 5000 feet, and only 60 horsepower on top of Pike's Peak. Another thing Is that sometimes grades are deceptive and we don't realize how steep they are, it there is no level ground to judge by. So if we go on a rood trip and happen to get Into country Where hills are hills, We often have no idea of what Is in store for us. Like as not, we will come rolling up to a hill, taking it for granted that we'll make the grade. But before we've gone very far we find Hint our posver seems to be giving out, and we're slowing down Then we realize we must shift to second gear, but we're lucky if we haven't found out so late that there we are, stalled on a hilll Now people who drive on hills all the timd soy i one thing to remember Is that there's nothing like B a good start. Of course, this is true, because the • minute we start up, gravity starts to work and work fast Yard-by-yard it uses up our momentum till oy- and-by that'momentum is just about gone. Then we have to shift to a lower gear to Increase our power. Experts tell us that by far the most common fault in hill-climbing is failure to shift to a lower gear soon enough. So just to be sure, some drivers set a definite point at which to change gears. The consensus of opinion seems to be that we should always ^ go into second gear as soon as our speed gets down g. to 20 miles nn hour. =•' There are times, however, when we want lo stop on n hill. So it's important to know how to start again, with our car on nn unerade And there seem to be two methods used by experienced drivers. Some use their foot brake to keep their cars from rolling backward, put their engine in low gear and accelerate slowly with the hand throttle, gradually engaging their clutch and releasing the brake at the same time. Other good drivers do exactly the same thing only they use the hand brake and the foot accelerator. But both groups tell us it doesn't make much difference . . . to use whichever method we happen to like the better. Now there aren't many hills that cars can't climb nowadays . . . and what goes up must come down. And that's where we have to look out for momentum.

Co-operative action among farmers in a rural community to obtain the economics of mass operations was strongly urged by Administrator Cooke in announcing the new policy. "Unity of action will save the farmers of this country hundreds of thousands, of dollars in their wiring alone," Administrator Cooke declared. "The cost of wiring can be reduced substantially by co-operative action resulting in a contractor wiring a hundred or more farmsteads under one contract father than bidding on each individual farm. We all know that if a man builds twenty houses on one project, the cost of each one is less than if only a single house were built. Similar savings are possible in wiring installations." "We are very desirous," the Administrator added, "of having wiring loans used as efficiently as possible so that farmers get dependable and serviceable wiring at reasonable cost. This is very important to the success of new rural electric line. The Government financing arrangements arc devised to muke it easier for the farmers to use a profitable amount of elcc- iricty from the sturt. The more current used, the greater benefits they will derive—not only in modern comforts and drudgery-eliminating conveniences, but also in increased production and better quality of the farm output, resulting in greater income for the farmer." marked: We are hoping to have a bonus bill jecome law.
