In the national .forests, liriw have been held at a minimum. More than 34,000 miies of trails and 23,000 miles of timber breaks have boon ' built. Harmful rodents have been fought on 7,000,000 acres of ground, ami insect pests on 1,000,000 acres. More limn 600,000 dams have been bu$lt Tor erosion control. A million forest acres have been cleared of brush; 150,000,000 tieeb Juno been planted in denuded areas. It is it striking record. Offhand, one might say that it Jop|(ij as if this CCC outfit Iwd.

There are strong objections 1,6 this plan bv some of (he interested organ- isations, however, and so an 'alternate idea is suggested in the form of fcd- eial aid foi \chmtary hospitals. But the .snag pioponents strike here is the question, ' How will the governmunl gel the nccessmy funds for such federal aid?" A 5 per cent iminufacltirers' sil | os tax is piopohccl by Franklin S. lOd- monds, past president of the National Tax: Association. It will produce ?1 000,000,000, he snys, and could be disliibutcd among those states that would co-operate in the federal aid plan and would also promise not to lax sales in any oilier way. The hospital program is an endeavor to maintain the health of Uie people, J)iit would not the mldilional burden of taxation oft set that effort? OUT OUR WAY Index of Recotiery Every so often you get a glimpse •of a slowly rising recovery tide. It makes little noise, and we oflcn fail entirely to see it; but it seems to be (here, slowly but surely bringing us back toward recovery. The latest glimpse came when the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. reported that it has made a gain in fhe installation of new stnlions in every (junrler of this year. In the quarter ending in September Ihere was a net jriiin of 37,500 telephones; for the whole year, a gain ot';j(JO,000 i.s expected. This compares with a loss of (iilO.OOO last year and 1,007,000 in I!W2. Here, it seems to us, is a definite sign of real improvement. A continued KHin in (he inimlwr of lulephones can reflect nothing else than a steady improvement in the economic condition of the great middle cl.'is.s. Slowly but surely, Hie tide seems to be rising. 7 he Navy Tal^es Charge The Navy Department is going to help Uie American merchant marine insure the safety of ships and passengers on the high seas. Senior naval officers .will he detailed to make voyages on ships over which the Department of Commerce has jurisdiction, according lo nminjfc- ment.s recently concluded between the Commerce and Navy Departments. They will inspect thoroughly the personnel and equipment of the ships. Krcm their report will come new systems of regulation. It is reported that new methods of disciplining mid training . merchant ship's crews will be one product of . this innovation. It looks like an exceedingly sensible move. The watchful eyes of (rained naval men can be (depended upon to detect any (laws ill equipment or construction. And a tnste of discipline after the naval manner .might not hurl crews that tend 'to got confused and panicky . in lime of crisis. •' There is beginning ( 0 develop a .feeling among psople who lavs lona been acipmlntcd witli tlie avlaliun Induslry that, uir incing, especially nosed course racing, lias outlived it usefillness. •-.. —Major James A.
