We are witnessing today the progressive "pauperization of townships and countUs that thrived so long us limber lasted) and which are now slowly dying and literally going into bankruptcy." Mr. Pack knows the situation, probably, as well as any man in the country. His w.prds are not ;it all comforting. Apparently we need an entire new reforestation program if our forest resources are to endure.

OUT OUR WAY IP By Williams A GOiM T Cr\T e \WE\-L._. „ .._'v_u COME BY RODNEY .UUTCIIER NE\ Servitc Writer . WASHINGTON.—Fish are still welcomed at the White House if, the/y are not too dend, but no more, fish rietd apply to have their pictures taken with the president of the United States. " : Mr. Hoover Is partial to fish; H-7 likes to catch them and he like.: to eat them. But he isn't fond of poslne with them any more/. Some weeks ago a very fine salmon came down here from-Maine for the Hoover table. Congress-, man Donald Snow of Maine made Ihe presentation and other Maine congressmen stood by lo assist him In cose he dropiwd the fish .or something us well as to be .photographed during the proceedines. . A Headless Trophy . . At the last minute Congressman Snow made the appalling cliscpvcry that the salmon had been .taken into the White House kVtclien ami decapitated in preparation ' for serving. That threatened to ruin the photograph and probably would have done just that except for Mr. Snow's stroke of genius! He dashed Into the kitchen and sewed the head back on again : so that it might be fit to-poso with Mr. Hoover and the donors. But Ihe story got inlo print vv.\ It teems lhat tue president thought it lookcil rather funny for, him to Imposing vvllh a fish which hart had its head cut off and then scwec back on again. Possibly he renlizc-J that the poor fish, looked funnier than anyone else concerned, but at any rale that was the last fisi picture at Hie While House. The saddest victim of the new fish policy T. Joe Cahlll of the Du:lc Ranch Association, who had (is! flown here by plane for Mr. Hoo vcr, only. 10 lind that the prciidun •.ouldn't even pssc with such ob vionsly very 8|>ecial and exlraor dlnary fish. Washington has a soft spot in it heart for Amos W. W. Woodcod the new prohibition director in tli Depailment of Justice. Woodcoe for years had charge of prohibi lion enforcement in Maryland a U. S. district attorney in Ball! more. But the capital's favorlle liquo as always been Maryland - rye hisky of all ascs. And it still Is. >es]iite efforts which were almost rodiyiuus, Mr. Woodcock ;never null any apparent inroads on the roducllon of Maryland's stills, •Ith the result- lhat Washington as never had to go on a gin basis so many cities.have. • * « In Washington the Hon. Smltl; ViUlnian Brookhart, senator from ix. seems rather. harmless.. He ocs noi rank the big s of the Senate and has been cltiiiij into the newspapers lately nly when, presenting evidence that onicoKC served hooch at a party. Uut In Chicago, where things re always nice and 'quiet" and eacciul and folks are easily alarm- d,' he appears to be regarded with ear. The Chicago • Journal of Com- nercc editorially accuses him of icing "a man who advocates' rcvo- ution by violence"—a "revolutionary" as the term "might be applied o William 2. Foster, the ialc liig Sill Haywocd, the late Lenin, the: present Trotzky and Ihe present Stalin." . . In Senator Brookhart the state of-Io\va has an outright red rcvo- ulionary in the United States Senate," insists the Journal. • « • Congressman- Tom Blantou ot rosss, biick in the House- after defeating the wid&w ot the man who succeeded him there when Blanton ran vainly for the Senate, has to bfart all over again as far as seniority is concerned. Thus pojr Ton hasn't been on a single co'minltlcL since his return..And lhat Is rathe lough because as a member ot District, of Colnmbia Committee h used to be able tu raise more hcl about, local affairs than the rest o C'onsrcss combined. Robbed of hi former facilities for publicitj Blanton came out the other day a the only man in the House to spea against the Wagner cmploymcn bills. Tom has been fighting labj for 20 years and labor has bee fighting Tom. The Texas congress man's idea was that the countr would be wasting money in the at tempt to do something abaut em 'ploymcnt and that a lot of-poop were unemployed because they wei too lazy to work.

ROCKEFELLER'S BIRTH On July'8,'1839, John D. Rockefeller, -American capitalist, who before his retirement in 1911 was regarded the wealthiest man in modern history, possessing a fortune cst;ir.5tefi u* nigh as $l,000,000,Uu. was born at Richford, N. -Y. At the age. of 14 he moved to Cleveland, O., where, after, receiving a public school education, became a • clerk in a commission house. In less than four years he became-a:partner. With his partner he invested in a new business of. ; ;oll .refining." Within, 10 years, under' Rockefeller'.' leadership, established itself as the most important' factor in the petroleum industry "in America. Works 'ncl - live 'In 1865 the Standard Oil was-built at Cleveland an years later was consolidated with others to' form the Standard Of Company. In forming his columns it.:*as found he. had created ( a 'trust" in violation of the law and was therefore compelled to dissolve t. lie then formed separately operated companies. Rockefeller devoted much - time and money to the promotion of various educational, religious and charitable Interests. In 1892 he established the University of Chicago, to which he made gifts exceeding 523,000.000.. He built and Initially endowed the Rockefeller Institut.i lor medieal research at a cost.of $4,000,000. At the end of 1921 it was estimated his benefactions exceeded $500,000,000. MISTAKES IDENTITY FT. WAYNE, Ind.' (UP) — Fred Hamilton' may look every inch Ihe sheriff of Allen county when he is around here, but not LO in Indianapolis, he found out recenlly. Indianapolis police stopped his red- light-equipped official car when he was taking three prisoners to the Indiana state farm at Putnainville a short time ago. It has become the custom for ruin runners : to add red lights to their machines and stars to their licence plates to give their 'cars an "official" air, Hamilton was told.

Sometimes Ihcse con- dilions arc treated by lotions and ointments and by the provision ol s and they will seem lo im>rove temporarily, but the improve- ncnt will nol be permanent until the infected teeth and tonsils arc removed. The most serious of the types ot infection arc ulcers of the eyr which quile frequently are associated with infections in the mouth.

There are, of course, certain forms'of disorders of the eye which are apparently In no way related to (oca! infection; tor example, cata? ractr. In an attempt to handle this condition numerous cases have been studied In which every possible foi- ci of infection have been relieved and. yet the cataracts did not Improve nor ' wa sthcir development delayed. It-is quite possible lhat the disturbance r>f the eye is caused not by the germ carried to the eye but by the development of Ihe nolson- oiit products of the germs and the effects of these poisons upon tr.p, tissue of the eye.
