ANOTHER WILSON WILFUL WASTE BROUGHT TO CLOSE An investigation, during the casing period of the last administration by a joint congressional committee re vealed that two hundred and sixtv-six -journals, and periodicals" were being published by the various ! branches of the government, at a cost j cf two and one-half million dollars an- 1 nually. The government's journalistic ! output expanded enormously during eagerness for official information and i instruction. A great part of the information furnished was, of course, available 'through the press and privately published periodicals, and before ""official publication. And the instruction imparted was not lacking! ,. . , , in political propaganda. The Wilson administration employed an army of pres agents whose energies were not limited to spreading unvarnished news before the public. After the war was over it was in no haste to dismantle ; machinery so useful to partisan pur poses, j As a re?u!t of the investigation the j printing of one hundred and eleven publications was ordered stopped.

While the major portion of the more than 100.000 people who see the 500-mile race at Indianapolis each year are everlastingly watchinp the speeding cars on the treacherous turns there are many pathetic incidents that come in for a share of attention. Crowds are always attracted by a pilot and his helpers pushing a disabled mount iato the pits or watching the pit crew make speedy repairs to a partially damaged speed boat. But it's the winner who nearly always sets the attention and the crowd that will watch the 500-mile run for Jlj'-v .- V.Jft.J'.g mount down the stretch after fire had put him out of the running. So he went over to where Hearne and Wilcox, who already had been tossed out of the event, were being entertained by a Jolly crowd of pretty missies.

A new type of military airship was recently tested by the army air service at the experimental station, Mc-Cook field, Dayton, O.

In laying the foundation of a forest policy, New Brunswick has given the lead to the continent, according-to a prominent official of the United States department of forestry. More than 4,000,000 acres in the province have been examined and classified by a staff of technical foresters. The data developed by the survey have been embodied in timber maps, showing all timber types and permanent features with respect to watersheds and regions. Estimates are also given of the standing timber, six inches and over, on the stump, by species--and unit of area, based on a 4 percent, caliper tally, considered by experts as intensive. Because of the enormous loss occasioned in shipping eggs, the problem of a design of an efficient carrier is a fertile field for research. As hens do not work to any standard, the carrier must have a certain amount of flexibility, nnd yet be rigid enough to protect the fragile contents. In a recently patented carrier, according to Popular Mechanics Magazine, diagonal strips of cardboard, placed inside the usual rectangular openings, hold the eggs in individual pockets which are protected from the shocks received in shipment.

FINAL STEP TAKEN IN CONSOLIDATION OF AID FOR EX-SERVICE MEN The final step in the consolidation i of a11 PTernment veteran relief agen- ! icies under one head was taken in the executive order signed by President TT :i ontL V:.L r ! !""" - rT ' bill, enacted by this Congress. The order affects 57 hospitals now in operation, one purveying depot and nine hospitals under construction. (The institutions are scatered among 2 states and include Such well known hospitals as Fox Hills, New York, and the Edward Hines, Jr., Hospital at Maywood, Illinois, as well as several reconverted army camps. All facilities, property and equipment in these hospitals are transferred to the Veterans Bureau. The commissioned personnel of the United States' Public Health Service on duty in these hos- -11 v v o I juais iii vcr uteri .an cm uy incr curgnMi General of the Public Health Service who are paid out of the Veterans Bureau funds, will be transferred and given appointment in the Veterans Bureau. The number of beds in the hospitals thus taken over is 17,000. Approximately 13,000 patients are now under treatment therein. Coincident with this transfer of existing hospitals has been the passage by Congress of the Langley bill and its approval by the President, carying an appropriation of $17,000,000 for the construction of additional hospital facilities. This is the third hospital appropriation made by Congres since the war; $9,050,000 was appropriated on March 4, 1919, and $18,600,000 on March 4, 1921, which, with the present appropriation and three deficiency acts,makes a total of $46,145,000 for hospitals. The latest appropriation was made in order to enable the Veterans Bureau to care for all patients i i n-aus were mimeographing their publications so as to be able to sav that ; superfluous "printing" had ceased.

The chief dissatisfaction among the veterans has been the contract institutions which the bureau, through inadequate resources of its own, was obliged to utilize. With the passing of the contract institution it will be possible to standardize the care of all the 30,774 patients now under the bureau's jurisdiction. That the former crowded condition of veteran hospitals has been effectively relieved since the organization of the Veterans Bureau is evidenced by the records of the bureau that there is now a surplus of 7,000 beds in bureau hospitals. The additional space is required, however, 'for more adequate care of the 2.893 tuberculous and 4.236 neuro-psychi- jatric patients now being treated in outside institutions. The consolidation of Health Service hospitals the Public under the Veterans Bureau completes the unifi cation of veteran relief agencies which made possible by the Sweet law, en- acted by the Republican Congress last ummer. The Harding administra tion pntered office to find the work of vetoran relief a chaos of conflicting jurisdiction. The unfortunate veter- under the old system, was obliged a ,v. Pass through the red tape of the -. . e.. ... tI ..r o Lmted States Publ,c Health Service his hospiteli2ation, the Federal Board for Vocational Education for his rehabilitation, and the War Risk insurance Bureau for his compensation. As a result, the whole service was clogged with delays. Under the present system, with all agencies centralized in the United States Veterans' Bureau, red tape has been eliminated, delays reduced to a minimum and every effort has been made to make relief easy and available to every needy veteran. Finally the consolidation of the hospital service of the bureau will make it possible to bring t?? efficvienc Jnto that " " , , . . relief administration.

The last phase of preparation for placing the car in front of the pit is weighing. as indemnity for the boxer uprising; we nearly knocked the world cold when we paid Spain for the Philippines after taking the islands in a fair fight; we presented Cuba to the Cubans; we ! have been so long suffering with Mexico that we have almost sacrificed our self-respect; we asked nothing and took nothing in the way of indemnities for the late war. The nations of Europe know these things and deep down in their hearts it is probable that they consider our attitude one of weak sentmentalism. Jefferson (la.) Bee. MONEY, NOT MORALS Lady Astor, speaking eloquently and persuasively of her wish that America were at Genoa, predicted that "America will have to go to Europe yet." Whereupon the Chicago Trbune remarks that "she seems to have overlooked the fact that America has been to Europe once." Lady Astor talks about the world looking to Amer. ica for moral leadership, but it isn't "moral leadership that Europe wants ' as much as it wants Uncle Sam's money.
