When the, Party Is Over—the Dirty Dishes The party is over in Louisiana. The sink is full of dirty dishes, and the people of Louisiana will have to do the washing. ;It is an old, old story, tokl again and again in the history of American politics. But we never learn. Each time e think we know which shell conceals . the. political pea, Vwe pays our money, and we takes our choice." And each time the deft hand of lime whisks away the' pea, leaving the table and pocket equally bare. In order that as much as possible of the lesson shall slick this time, let's set down the lessons of Louisiana: 1. Beware of the people who promise too much. Miracles happen in polities just as seldom as they do iii any other realm. In politics, as in everything else, Die hard way, Ihe slow way, is the best way, 2. Beware of the fellow who.says, ill politics, "Just leave everything lo me. I will take care of your interests." It almost never happens. The people must guard ami take care of their own interests] or it will be just too bad for those interests. 3. Beware the one-man machine. No one' man is big enough to check the operations of a whole government, eveii if his .intentions are the best. 4.- Beware the man who makes ob- vioJLisly 1 unfit appointments just because the . appointees are "good ' follows^' ' When you see obviously unqualified men slipping into offices, you may be - - sure they iiren't going in for their health. 5.'' Beware of too strong and too well- oiled a parly machine. It makes the pickings too good for- any hut the strongest to resist. Beware the man who uses 'strong-arm methods; he's hiding something. • 6. Beware of indifference, arch-foe of republican government government, Achilles heel of democracy, and the only thing that permits Ihe Louisiana kind of party to happen at all. Huey Long is dead, and there is no use in inquiring at this dale whether or not he had his hand in the till. But the fact can no longer 'be questioned that he gathered around him a lot of high-binders and large-scale moochers who did. At the time when these tilings were brewing,'many astute newspaper reporters wrote the truth. They were abused, as destructive critics, envious scandalists, and detractors of a great regime which was the people's friend. Now they are vindicated. The people's friends had their hands in the people's pockets all the time. Louisiana, grimly washing the greasy spots,'and pans in the cluttered slnlc kitchen, can only reflect ruefully to itself, "Well, I voted for it!" FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1939 A Worthy Movement. The effort of the local Lions Club to' obtain excess funds of Paving District Number One and Sewer District Num.- her One to use for repairs arid maintenance of the districts' systems and other civic enterprises is deserving of support. The full bonded indebtedness of thq two districts has been paid. A; small surplus remains in the treasury of each • district and under the law,, it is held, the commissioners of the districts cannot expend the excess funds for any purpose since the only basis for their collection was to retire the districts' bonds. Expense incidental lo a detailed pro rata refunding of the excess funds to the taxpayers probably would absorb a considerable portion of the remaining funds. ( The Lions Club is contacting the lax- payers of the districts, asking that the taxpayers assign their interest in the surplus funds.''to the Lions Club. •• The Lions Club says it will establish a trust fund with part of tlfe proceeds, said .fund to be used for ndcessary repairs and maintenance for which purpose the commissioners cannot legally use the remaining funds. The balance of the assigned fund, the Lions Club proposes to use for various civic improvements, beneficial to the city as a whole. The proposal is a worthy one and involves a considerable amount of application on the part of the Lions Club to obtain'the assignments they seek. They are "entitled to' succeed. Immigration De Luxe Our traditional 'picture of immigrants, formed back'at the turn of the century, is a group of wide-eyed and shawl-covered Ruthenians w n i I i n g helplessly at Ellis Island for the word that would admit them to the New World. \ Like so many of our old piclure- thoughts, this wants revision today. For two quota immigrants just arrived in the United Stales—on the Pali- American Clipper. They were a Dr. and Mrs. Pules Boruchowily, from Antwerp, Belgium. Strange contrast,, indeed, to the purgatory-ships floating from port to port, disease-ridden and desperate, with Ihe hundreds of refugees from central Europe who want so much to be immigrants and whom nobody will receive. It is strange that even at the level of immigration, where all are presumed to be seeking a better chance at life, that (here should be such poles- apart differences between men. I got mad ancl realized that because or the baby I couldn't go out like other girls—Mrs Vclma Fink, 22. Ohio divorcee, explaining w ),y she killed her 10-week-oltl baby.

CHAPTER Vir nno tlie surprise and delight ot the four young workers at Coldcrcsl, tourists discovered their ghost town immediately, and in rapidly increasing numbers. Most of this was due to Franklin tarra- way. He had (nought to take a few photographs o[ Goldcrest before he went to Los Angeles''to confer with travel agencies. Pro- roolion men had seen his pictures. They in tin n had contacted two of the large national photo magazines and several large newspapers. Goldcresl wasn't two weeks old— in its revived stale—before it was having national publicity, mid this had spurred' (lie travel agents along as well. The result was that all four workers soon were kept busy serving as guides. They worked out neat, entertaining little lectures to give the tourists as each walk through Goldcrest pro- gvessod. They had arranged, with Mrs. Hogan's valuable help, to have three or lour bearded "prospectors, an Indian family, and two elderly cowboys loafing regularly around the porch of the Ace High Hole! jusl for looks, and inside Ihe hotel "lobby" Mrs. Hogan now operated a quick lunch stand. It showed a profit serving sandwiches and drinks and confeclions lo tourisls. Six horses were kept saddled for tourists who wanted to slay longer and ride around the hills—al an additional $1 per hour. Hoselec, now called "Mayor" o£ Cioldcrest by her friends, was delighted with the progress they were making. But meanwhile Dick Bancroft's personal venture there had lagged, lie had come to Coldcrest originally lo test the old abandoned ore dump and he hadn't found lime to do any work on it. lie needed certain chemicals and equipment which he would have to order from Phoenix, but most of all he needed free time.' "Thing for you to do," his friend Franklin counseled one busy Monday morning, "is take some of the average samples o£ the ore and send them in by stage for formal assay. It'll go on in to Phoenix easy, and if the assay looks good, then that's all you need." "I'll do it," Dick agreed,-happily. ' "I wanted to slick close here anyway."" "Yeah," Franklin nodded. "She'd make a man forget mining or anything else." Vitamin B Is Complex Aid Against Beriberi and Forms of Neuritis ANSWER: From tusks of the elephant, walrus, hippopotamus nnd Narwhal whale.

CUP) — South Dakota's annual Income may be "sweetened" to the extent, of SI (100,000 a yenr. Grant county farmers have been experimenting somewhat successfully with sugar beets, and agri- | culturlsts are of tlie opinion that I establishment of a sugar beet • plant In the slate would net around 51,000,000 In additional income The experiments showed sugar beets would yield an average of 10 tons to the acre .(the average market sugar beet price is S5 a tan). The growers said that sugar beets were less affected by drouth than oilier crops. During Inst summer's dry period, Ihe beet crop yielded about 80 per cent cf normal while corn dropped to as \6\\ as GO per cent. On the average, girls of 10 to day arc 10 pounds heavier than their sisters of 25 years ago, according lo Brilish statistics. J. R.

Franklin wasn't looking at Ms friend. The pain in his own soul was throbbing. Which accounts, berhaps, for the fact that he jumped at a conclusion. Finally he walked over and put n hand on the other's shoulder. "Dick," lie said, smiling in slow friendly manner, "money doesn't matter with that girl. It's you. I—well, I already know. She told me so herself!" * » * T>RISCOE & SON, Assayers and • Metallurgists, advertised their business partnership with o sign in front ot a cluttered laboratory on First street in Phoenix, Arizona, and this Thursday morning old man Bfiscoe himself washed his hands, wiped them on an inky towel, and went to Ihe overloaded desk in Ihe front of his establishment. He fouiid his glasses and adjusted them an amazing distance from his eyes, then lilled back his head to see through them, automatically opening his mouth. For 10 minutes then he searched, "prospected" through (he litter of papers, rocks, dust, lint, envelopes, keys, pencils, whiskey glasses and cat hairs before him. Even the cat itself was moved, with a protesting meow. But Mr. Briscoe was thwarted. : Finally his son and partner, a man of almost 50 himself, grew impatient. '••• ' ; "Wliyn't just send th' reports to Ed Felch!" he begged, cbnten- liously. "You been knowin'.him for 50 years. Goldcrest is Western M. & M. proppiiy,, and Felch's till th' president, ain't he? Any assays'd have to git to him sooner or later anyhow." "Yep, reckon so," old man Briscoe said. "Wasn't him thet sent in th' samples, though. Still they both rnusta been his men, er they wouldn't of said they got th' samples at Goldcrest. One asked about this new business ot hand- lin' low grade ore, I remember. You take and write Ed a letter for me, son, and say the low grade is good for about $(> a ton, but to forget that and work' the rock samples. My lord, they assayed better'n a $100 a ton! Old Goldcrest is likely to boom again, son! You wish Ed Felch well, for me. We'll likely git more of his business." Which accounts for the fact that four days later' President Felch *o£ the Western Metals and Minerals Corporation, head/Juar- tf-rs in El Paso, almost h'ad a spasm of surprise and anger when he read the formal assay'report and the personal leller.'frohi Briscoe & Spj) in Phoenix. And /or tlie fact that Mr. Felch.Jorlh'with called'in the burly field manager of his corporation for- an executive session.

MOKKIS FISHBEIN • Eilitor, Journal of Hie American itlc'ilical Associaion, and of Hygcia, the Health Magazine Whereas vitamin B was once Ihcught to be a single substance, it is now called the vitamin B complex. The chemists, the experts in nutrition, mid " the physicians have combined to develop at least nine different substances which are included in this vitamin B complex, and which seem to have specific effects in the bodies of birds, beasts, -rodents cr men. One of them, called Vitamin Bl is known scientifically as tliiamin chloride. Tills also Is the anti-beriberi vitn- min and Die antl-ncurltlc vitamin. It is known to be useful in taking care of cases of beriberi, always caused by its absence, and of being useful in certain forms of neuritis which result when vitamin Bl is absent frcm the diet. It is known to be necessary for optimum growth in children, and It is believed to be or value in preventing lack of appetite in certain cases in which lack of appetite results from a deficiency of vitamin Bl. « . » « There arc certain cases in which neuritis occurs apparently associated with the lack of this vitamin. These Include pernicious vomiting In pregnant women, cases in which people have to be fed through a tube because of various diseases, cases in which people have taken large amounts of alcohol, and thus have not absorbed the foods from their diet. In such conditions, the taking cf vitamin Bl or thinmin tends to bring about relief. This vitnmln is a highly complex substance. It Is known to contain carbon hydrochloride, oxygen, nl- Irogcn, sulphur Biicl chlorine. Vitamin Bl or thlamin is now available In several different forms, and should usually be prescribed by a doctor In the dosage that is needed In the Individual case. Certain foods arc known to be especially rich in, vitamin Bl. In(is much as the units to be used have been slam'artilzed. the Council on Pharmacy and Chemislry of the American Medical Association dees not permit claims that a fcod is valuable because of its thlamin content, unless that food will provide in the quantity usually taken each day 200 units of ihlamln. In the light of our present knowledge, H would seem lo be true thai an Infant .requires ,at least 50 units of tliiamin daily, and an adult requires -not • less than 200 units of tliiamin daily. It must be borne in mind, however, that many foods contain vitamin Bl, particularly the:whole grain, cereals, leafy green vegetables, Jomatoes, and beans. Tlie most potent substance containing this product is yeast.
