The March of Progress The '18 stales of our union seem very small sometimes, very clo.-ioly related indeed. Just the other day Captain Frank M. Hawks arose in the morning, ate breakfast, climbed into his airplane in New.iYork City, and arrived in Us Angeles in time to see the sunn set on the Facilic. Just ;i day's joni'iity MS the crow—or rather, the modern birdman—flies. Once upon a timu it would have taken torturous months lo have made such a trip. Spring would have eiitl- . cd and summer and fall would have been gone before the caravans could have' battled their way across the pdains, through the mountains and into the western hind. We who by so high and fast today • forget; fhe immensity of our nation. We also forget the years of weary toil which were necessary lo make the 1 wilderness burst into the colored flowers, which arc everywhere today. We somehow have the opinion that all we need to do is wave a wand and things happen. Other lands, where countries have passed while life worked its way toward a faroff fulfillment, envy us our strength. America looks toward the future, raises her head to clear, bright skies, while they look down the long lanes of memory. Europe is proud of things that she has done. She has made a painted story-book of her past which she will open for you, page by page, as you wander through her cities. America has the long, long look ahead. And the upward look, for much of her recent progress concerns the air trails. Once upon a time a wise man remarked that old men should dream dreams and young men should see visions. We arc fullilling the later part of that prophecy. . It isn't so important whether Captain Hawks beats Colonel Lindbergh's record for transcontinental speed. It is the winged spirit of progress that makes America not satislicd to rest on past accomplishments, the winged courage which sends her out again and again, that counts. When the first covered wagon went slowly through the green cathedral of the forest, eyes out of lurking animals and Indians, the wast to coast journey secerned like a far trip from which there ceulcl be no retiirniiiK.

Ijoycolt on liritish eloth, and Ihc result suit depression in Kng- liiml's eotton mills, have hit Germany's eottoti textile industry a severe blow. The boycott, cutting down the liritish textile manufacturers' market, lias given Kin-ope a surplus of textile and and has caused prii-.'s lo go down. So the Germans, who have nothing whatever to do with the. Anglo-Indian (|iies- lion, are snlfering the ell'eel of it just as the Knglish are.

They were tent to Rcmiingtoii by eneral John Burgoyne to cap- Hire _thc depot of supplies which the Americans were reported to :iave there. As the invaders were utterly ignorant of the country, as well as the Revoluiionisis 1 methods of warfare, they were easily trapped, surrounded and captured. Of a force of about 1000. more than 00 were killed and wounded. 10 relumed lo Buryoync and the rest laken prisoners. The American loss was 14 killed and 42 wounded. Washington called this victory a "great stroke" because it prevented Burgoync from gelling the suup- plics he sorely needed nud cut off all communication between him I the garrison he left at Ticou- deroga. Further, it resulted in the desertion of a large body of Indians and Canadians, while it greatly strengthened Ihe Americans, particularly by causing the enlistment of large bodies of militia for tervice under General Gates. nearly everything.

Few members of Congress, prou- ably realize all the work that goes Into preparing Ihose darned laws inlo big books so that the nation .will know wiial Ihey are. If they nil did. liiouah. Ihcy prcbably would pass just us many of them. The Job of compiling and publishing Statutes at Large for each Congress is that of the legal section of the Historical Adviser's office in the Department of State. The his- lorical advisor, Tyler Dennett, also has responsibility fpr preserving carefully the original of every law ever passed by Congress and signed by Ihe speaker, the president of he Senate and the president of the United States. The signed original comes to the Stale Department from the White Hoiifc. printed on parchment paper of 100 per cent rag. Congress insses four kinds of laws: Public aws and publid resolutions and irivate laws and private resolution*;It if. roinctimes hard to distinguish lelween laws and resolutions, but the public measures are put into one book and the private measures ,nto another. Bryan in Charge The legal section, under Henry L. Bryan, first classifies the originals as public or private. At the same lime, however, it receives four copies of each law from the Government Printing Office which it certifies as the copies of the signed original and then sends one to the Budget Bureau, one to the Treasury, one to Ihi! General Accounting Office and one to the Public I'rinl- From Ihe fourth certified copy -._ lesjal section gets a proof, which is read against the signed original been shown to be the same cr made to cciiform, that proof goes ;o :!ie printing office, which makes individual copies of each law lor distribution among those who want such copies.

After that it goes once again to the printing office for the correction of any errors dcteclcd during Ihe proofreading.

The sec- clary of state is required to pro- luce a bound volume of laws pass- 'd by each session at the end of hat session. The past session's aws require two volumes.

The signed originals of the laws arc bound and placed in steel cases ill a room as nearly fireproof as can be found in the Stale, War and Navy Building, among the Stale Department's archives. Earliest laws, bearing signatures of George Washington and many oilier of Ihc fathers, arc priceless frcm Ihe collector's standpoint. During the first 18 congresses they were engrossed on huge pieces of vellum the size of the Declaration cf Indcpcntleiicc.more than two feet by three. The signatures are so valuable that tfcose laws have been bound in .such a way as to require the efforts of two persons lo lift them. The originals oi all our federal laws will go into the new government, archives building whenever lhat is complclcd.
