She rests in 'ft'iteotny sub-basement under Cleveland's city hall. The Porcupine sailed out with Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry on a September morning and helped. fight > the British to destruction of£ Put-in Bay. Sturdy and strong, she was not badly damaged and continued in government service many years. Lumber interests purchased her; she sank in a storm; a Michigan naval student raisedherandsen t her to the Put-in Bay centennial celebration of 1913; the late Newton D. Baker brought her to Cleveland; and then she was "buried" as officials moved into new city hall. Forgotten in her basement, the Porcupine isn't a pretty sight for she is ; littlc hiore than a miscellaneous pile of damp and rotting timbers, dotted with handwrought spikes and nails. A pale, ghostly light filters into the room through thick glass blocks in the sidewalk above. There is a pungent 'odor of decay. Spider webs glisten in the eerie light and mysterious little bugs thrive on the rotting decks. HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS Claims Britain Not a Democracy J. B. Priestly, the English novelist, essayist, playwright, and frequent lecturer in United States, has a new book, "Rain Upon Godshill" (Harper & Bros.: ?3). Reflective essays, remembrances and recollections of his travels, are sandwiched in with Piestlyan philosophy. Here is a look inward upon the state of Britain, written before the war. Our commonest error of speech is our description of this country (Britain), as a democracy, It is not a democracy, and never has been; though it is worth observing that it is father away from the true democracy than it was 20 years ago. Indeed, I think we were nearer to being a democracy back in 1912. Just after the war it did look as if we were about to say goodbye to feudal.Britain forever, but very soon the ranks of privileged persons closed up and com- 'nton people had to keep their distance. .Neither politically nor socially is this country a democracy. Hardly anybody here thinks or feels like a democrat. If you begin to talk like one in public, there is a rumpus. There is more of a rumpus now than there used to be. For example, there,was a time when pubblic men openly declared them- __. selves republicans. How many dare do apart from the Divine nalnes. OUR BOARDING HOUSE, . with ...

Very well then, we are not a democracy, but are we any the worse for that? Do we not derive our strength from the slow growth and development of our fot'nis of political life? Is not this our famous English way? We have forms and institutions of immense value that yet cannot be accurately defined, because they have grown like trees. ; So much is true. But if you begin to see cracks everywhere and smell rotting wood, it may be thhat all is not well with ;the trees, that the sap of life is not flowing freely. A traditional way of doing things must have at the center of it a spring and fountain of rich instinctive 'life. The traditions are with us, but are the spring and fountain what they were? The retrogression of recent years does not suggest they are. Nor does the faint smell of decay in our atmosphere. So let us stop complimenting ourselves out of our history books, and see what we really are at this Moment. We are not a democracy, but a plutocracy roughly disguised as an aristocracy.

The two undefeated warriors of'the Southwest Conference—Texas Aggies and Baylor—get the works this Saturday, and if they survive, one or the other is a possibility for somebody's New Year's Day game. It's Baylor vs. Nebraska and the Aggies vs. Texas Christian this week-end. Should both come through, the tiny hamlet of College Station will be clogged Saturday, October 28. Oil that day Baylor plays the Aggies. Thrice-beaten Texas Christian—a team that has snowed under three teams in yardage gained but failed to click on the goal line—sends a crippled eleven in to uphold a jinx that has kept the Aggies from winning in Fort Worth since 1919 and has per- 'mitted only one Calet triumph in the past 14 years. Statistically better through three games than its undefeated predecessor of last year, TCU, nevertheless, was a short-ender on 9-5 odds after the Aggies' walloping of Villanova last Saturda3', 33-7. Two of its finest offensive threats, Halfback Logan Ware ,ind Quarterback Jack Odlc, are injured. Ware may play; Odle is a definite sideline sitter. Other regulars are battered. The Aggies got a tremendous scare Wednesday when Marion Pugh, tho big passer and runner, was felled in scrimmage, but Coach Homer Norton said Xlray examinations showed injuries were minor and that he probably would start against the Frogs. It's the conference starter for the Cadets. Texas Christian lost to Arkansas, H-13, i n its only start. Baylor's solid team, brushed to perfection on fundamentals and playing old-fashioned power ball, was an even- up bet against a Nebraska team that whipped Minnesota. Sophomore Jack Wilson, the line-tearing fullback who loci the massacre of Arkansas last week, had recovered fro'm bruises and was listed as a starter- Down at Austin, Texas, makes it debut in conference play after a stunning start for a green squad Sophomores, led by Cowboy Jack Grain, the touchdown runner, scalped Florida and Wisconsin before succumbing to Oklahoma s piercing attack last Satu relay.

At Dallas Southern Methodist no longer a dark horse after wrestling Notre Dame all over South Bend, plays a Marquette team that licked the Mustangs last year, 7-0. It can't happen again, experts say.

This means that I get transportation and a public school education for 5^.27 per child per year. What can you buy for what you receive in a superior rated school .such as Hope offers for the children in §2.27 per child our pei- community year? I wonder if the Providence School Board has figured the increase in their school tiixcsV Let us look a moment: Cnc director whose assessed valuation is ?1<130, would have an increase of only $7.98 per year, with amounts lo 2'.:i cents per day. Another member pays on an assessed valuation of $270, the 12 mill tax amounts to $3.24. On the 18 mills, the actual difference is only $1.62 per year. Another board member has assessed valuation of $40. His school taxes arc 48 cents per year, based on 12 'mills. On 18 mill, there is a net difference of 24 cents per year. Can we. as mothers and fathers, deny the children of our community the right to attend a 12-grade school for that pitiful amount of taxes? Will you. as EI community, permit these two flimsy reasons for giving you children and mine the advantages of a complete, modern education, such as tho Hope District is offering to us? Let's think this over together. Your friend and neighbor and Ui.x- payer. LEO RAY Oct. 20. iy:;o Hope Rt. 2.
