HAGE EIGHT 1 m Denies Comparison Between Waterway Subsidies and Rail Land Grants I-'VJJ Ex-Premier of France Is 111 CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Dec. 18 —Statements made In a recent St. Louis address by Secretary ol War Patrick J! Hurley, thai the assistance being rendered Inland waterways by the United Slates government now Is analogous to the as- sistance'given the railroads In (heir pioneering days through land giants were brought In Issue by J. M. Hum, president of Frisco Lines, In sn address here last night before s genera! meeting ol civic clubs. The Frisco's president devoted n considerable portion of his address ' to polnllng out that the government has received a handsome return Irani the land grants mode I!:: railroads fifty years ago. "I do not care to get into a public discussion with the secretary ol war," Mr. Kuril said, "but when Secretary Hurley compares present day subsidy of inland waterways with the bud grants Initially made 'In the case of a number of railroads he docs not give the complete picture. "Every railway thai was given land grants was required in return to allow the government reduced rates and a decision of Ihe Sunrem; Court of the United Stales more than fifty years ago held that government matterlals and troops must be carried at 50 per cent. of the regular rates, while some ronds had to carry these materials nnd troops for nothing. "During the period from 1924 to 1928—ajid' remember this was during pej»ce times—the saving to the government from the land grain railways amounted [o more than 4,000,000 annually. Even this was not. the total saving to the gov- ernn^ent'because other rail lines which had not received land grants Initially, were forced to reduce rates for handling material, government mall, troops, etc., in order to meet trie competition of the land grant' carriers, so that Ihe saving to the government during Ihe period mentioned, was considerably more than $4,000,000 reported by the land giant carriers. Since these grants were made 60 years or so ngo. It is quite obvious, I think, that the railroads Instead of receiving a subsidy have in reality paid a handsome price for the land granted them and may I call your ntten- 'tion'to the fact thai they will of course, continue to pay and pay. 'The government records also show that the value of land grant property was less than $1 an acre. Assuming thli it n fair value, the saving c: Si.OCO.OOO a year which the- government received during the period : nientloiieil above, would have pa id-for : the land more than twice crrer during the long period the lan:l grants have been operated. Remember-also that the roads have been i»ytag"taxes on the land at a very increasing rite for the supi»rl of the states and counties through ..which they operate and without "which our rural school districts would be much, more deficient, due to the fact that Ihe railroads in many' Instances are the largest tax payers . In communities through which they operate." President Kiirn also pointed out that many other perplexing problems "confront the railroads today and paid particular reference to competition on the highways by buses and trucks, BV ISRAEL KMKN Science Killtor, NKA Srrvlri nttcrlcli bear much of flic brunt of driving In winter and therefore they need more attention at Ihls (ime. t 'Ihe bnllery will run down quickly on cold days for, the load on it is mi re than double.

This should be dene with the ignition oft, the choks out and the throttle partly open. The few turns will loosen the oil in the crankcase und nt the fai'ue time draw a little of the fuel into the combustion chambers. Then, with the Ignition en nnd the choke control In, a minimum drain on the bnttcry will be needed to'start the car. Another aid to tho battery in winter is the use of a thlniwr motor and transmission oil. What Is called "winter medium" is the most popular oil for most cars nt this time.
