No. one and nothing,-except our Bible and our God. can say, "Thou Shalt Not" to us when we see no wrong in what we do. We voted liquor outside of the law. We found we were wrong. We voted it back again. And again we were wrong. So we are now busily engaged in voting it put. But the wrongness is in making it a political issue. Whether it is outside of the law or in, anyone who wants it may have it. We all know that. It is an educational problem—not a political issue. A course in the elements of physiology showing the effect of alcohol on the internal organs and the brain would be a revelation to our children when they are at their most impressionable age. Teach them how liquor affects. tVie career of a man. Let them study case histories. Teach them that they don't want it.

They were found alive and well in the frozen wastes of Little America. Piercing the ice locking the Bay of , Wales, the British royal research' ship located the explorers where they had safely landed, having exhausted their fuel on a bold projected flight across the South Polar regions. Their long silence was due to a damaged radio transmitter, the British colonial office announced. The pair were found comfortably encamped on the face of the great ice barrier. They had been unheard from since they 'took off November 23 from Dundee Island.

Four have used their veto power in an effort to stave off the demands of World war veterans. Twice lh^ President 1 ." position was sustained and twice his stand reversed by congress'. President Harding was the first to face the music. In 1922. some four years after the wax ended, congress passed the first bonus measure. It provided four different types of optional settlements which the veterans were allowed to elect: 1. Adjusted service pay; 2. Paid-up endowment insurance; '.]. Vocational training aid; 4. Farm or home aid. On September 19. 1922. Hardinc vetoed the act and his veto was su- WASHINGTON — {&)— Confidence that the new-farm plan proposed under the-soil erosion an"d "conservation laws would CfiVry but the purposes of the dead AAA and bring about what he considers a well-rounded agricultural development of the nation was expressed Friday by President Roos. 1 - vclt. Administration leaders who talked o' er the problem created by AAA's invalidation with President Roosevelt Thursday said that while details ro- muLi to be worked out, the general plan is this: 1. Crop production would be adjusted through retirement of acreage PS a 5cil conservati in and crasion prevention measure. 2. Fanners would be reimbursed for land thus retired through federal "rental" payments. 3. Such authorization as is necessary will be sought through amendments to existing laws, rather than new ones. 4. An appropriation of $300,000,000 to 5400,000,000 will be asked to finance the program's estimated cost in 1936. 5. An additional appropriation of about $300,000,000 will be requested to reimburse farmers under the invalidated 1935 adjustment contracts. B. A "permanent" program might be sought iater thus session or deferred until next year. 7. Provisions of the AAA untouched by the Supreme Conn's decision would be strengthened and more fully utilized. Speaker Byrns told newsmen after leaving the White House that the ne- ce-ssity of enacting farm legislation "is so immediate that it has got to be done at the earliest possible moment, and there- won't be time for permanent legislation now." There' were similar expressions from Chairman Jontv;, Democrat. Texas, of the- House Agriculture Committee and Chairman Smith, Democrat, South Carolina, of the Senate Agricullure Committee. Other officials .said they hoped to get the program under way in time to affect the 193C cotton crop by renting land for "soil conservation" which might otherwise be. planted in cotton.
