Worthy of United Community Effort As an experiment in co-operative community endeavor the strip plan for flrtancinu the local relief program will be interesting to watch. It has been thoroughly cxaniinetl and pronounced souml. The need wliicli it is desiK'icd to ineel must be apparent to everyone. It will succeed on a scale sufficient to meet that need if it receives the whole-hearted support and co-operation of the entire community. It hftB everything else needed for success, but without that co-operation it will fail. For a year tlie federal government has taken from our .shoulders concern for the'less fortunate among us. Now it has decided that the time has arrived when we .should share the burden. Perhaps this decision on (he p.'irl of those in authority was premature, but nevertheless it is-certainly our obligation to do what we can. The plan that has been agreed upon calls for no large investment on the part of anyone. It is, in client, a limited sales tax, through which everyone will contribute a small, scarcely notice- able'amount toward tlie solution of a pressing problem. All of us will have a humanitarian motive for helping to make this plan a success, and many of us, directly or indirect ly, 'will" also have a selfish motive. For upon its success depends the permanence of a payroll of $1-1,000 per month, provided by the federal government for the employment of jobless residents of tins city upon public improvements, contingent upon cooperation by the community to the extent of supply ing materials. The money for this purpose that can come out of the city treasury i.s distinctly limited. Unless some other way of financing material purchases is found this work program with its substantial payroll will be short lived. Its end would mean the end of needed improvements, unemployment for some 400 local men, and loss to local business men of .the trade whicli a 31-1,000 monthly payroll means. In -print the plan may sou ml complicated. In actual practice il will prove amazingly simple. With earnest endeavor .upon 4he part of all concerned it will work out successfully, (AWL), COURIER JIBW1 to the benefit of the entire community. A British NRA?

Almost everj*. xxly lias observed this fact on limsclf, but, like all beliefs of mankind, Ihls one has recently «en subjected lo scientific study. Borne physiologists at the Uui- crslty of Chicago experimented vith six men, *ho on different oc- ons went without sleep for Ixty hours. During . tlwse waking lours, tlic students were tested as 0 their ability to stand upright villi their eyes closed, heir renc- ioris to sound and light, iind their lentnl ability in n simulc mental cst. In addition, tire invebtlgators cited the men who went without luep us to their ability to hold heir hands steady, the accuracy 1 their vision, and the response if their skins to Uic sense of touch and of pain. It wns found, first of all, that t was milch harder to keep awake md milch more difficult to pass csls successfully in the hours ..fae- wccn n arid fl o'clock In the mofn- ng. which arc the usual hours of Jc.u sleep, than it Is to keep awake it pass tests successfully lalerdur- "B the day. Wlieli we are short of slcap, we ire likely to be much more irritable than when we have had tufti- clcht sleep. Indeed, as the length of time without sleep continues, vc may seem to be semiconscious. Some of the men stared oul into pace and actually resembled people who hud a little too much M"oho and were abflut to pass out On going to bed after a long terlod of sleeplessness, the men ell nsleep almost immediately and lepl for as long as 11 to !2 hours nslcaci of the usual 8 to 9 hours' of sleep. The hands of the men without lecp were found to be much more uislcady thnn those who had rested sufficiently. Thl.s o&semtion s exceedingly important for men who work In Industrie.'; where accurate movements of tlw hands arc ncccssmy. as for o.vnmpte. jew- •I«s. machinists, and chemisft Those tests, however, should be larllcuiarly Important to those wlio drive motor cans. A man who drives an automobile must be able lo respond quickly to uniisiinl situations, his hnnd must be steady, and lie must be constantly aware of what Is going on. Tlie c.ise of modern driving, lo- calise of the automotive developments and the development of modem highways, have caused people to drive 10, 12 and H huurs a day without rest. Actual tests show that the longer the |x.>riod of work without rest is continued, the less safe it is for the driver and those who depend upon him.

I remember that two or three times we were almost ready and so many little things came up that it, made i( impossible for us to go. Of course as you have often heard me say mir biggest trouble has been the low of our church letters, I told Jim—that's my husband—I did l:ot see how we could afford to go and not, have the letters with us. We would not necessarily have to turn them in but one would feel so much more comfortable just to have them with us even though no one knew we had them. You know you have hnd a man a thing in your pocket that no one knew ntout that made you feel almost, happy so I can't see why this rule would not work out with one's church letter. (Copyrighted.)
