Protecting Their Security Announcement that Drainage District 17's Big Lake levee is to he recapped is welcome news for two reasons. It is of primary imporlancc because of the assurance that it brings farmers on thousands of acres of rich land that they will have at least a fair measure of protection against flood. It is also important, we believe, as an indication that th; holders of the district's bonds are coining to a renli/.n- tion that their hope of realizing upon their investment rests in large part upon and maintenance of their security. Ths lands in Drainage District 17, '_ given adequate drainage and protection • against flood danger,, arc worth millions of dollars. With inadequate drainage, and subject to periodic overflow, they ;; -would be worth very littlr. ; It is in the interest of bondholders • and property owners alike to have the district's physical structure maintained on a basis of highest efficiency. ^Dirigibles The disaster which overtook the R-101 yesterday is the latest of a scries that has befallen British dirigibles; America still remembers ths wreck of the Shenandoah, while France and Italy have suffered similar catastrophes. Of all the nations that have experimented with lighter than air craft, tor military or commercial transportation' only Germany, where Count Zeppelin originated the modern dirigible, lias escaped a Serious accident. Germany may indeed be. proud of the engineers who designed the Graf Zeppelin and the officer!; who piloted the.great ship on its trans-oceanic and earth girdling journeys. A New Source of Danger It is not -especially reassuring to learn that Adolf Hitler promises, if he ever conies to power in Germany, that he will do everything he can to evade fulfillment by Germany of international treaties. Since Hitler's Fascist party made sueli a spectacular gain in the last elec- lion, and since there are so many strong rumors,of on impending "putsch,", or forcible'seizure of power, by this party, the chances of Hitler's coming to power are not quite ns remote as one might wish; and if he ever does come to power risolvcd to carry out the program he has outlined, you may rest assured'that Europe will have plenty of trouble. It is quite possible, of COIIKC, to argue plausibly that many of the international treaties under which Germany now labors arc unjust and should be revised; but sudden, forcible revision such as Hitler advocate-* could only mean war. This Austrian politician seems to rank now ns the leading source of danger in nil Kiiropc. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Move Over Bishop Clara How, motio:i picture actress, accused of losing 514,000.00 in n gambling den nt Calneva, Nevada and of slopping payment on checks she had given to cover her losses, Is now fairly In a class with Bishop Cannon. Clara, nl first denied owing the money but after Will Rogers admitted lie had Introduced Clnra to the operators of the resort, Clara comes forward and admits she made a few beta but thought they were 50 cent bets instead of $100 bets. in pleading Ignorance of the amount of the bets placed Clara is following the lead of at least one olhcr distinguished citizen, Bishop Cannon. It will be remembered that Mr. Cannon at first denied Hint he hod gambled on chance and when proof of his deals were presented he claimed that he did not know it was gambling but thought people bought slocks outright and that it was legitimate business dealing. Cannon (jet by with his version of his stock dealings anil maybe Clara will get by with hers. However the matter may end Mr. Cannon should move over and make room for Clara.'

Proviilcs for Replacement The Fublic Highways (To the editor:) I have copy o an artlcb tint appeared In you paper Tuesday, September 30th, un der the heading of "Thq Publi Highway". I am very glad indeed to see thi interest displayed on this very vita quesilon. It does seem to me tlia these very large trucks, busses an trailers should be kept off th highway. There Is a legitimate bu and truck business that should be carried on on the highway and no- bcdy has any objection to that, but this thing of pulling vehicles on the highway larger than railway freight cars and loading them ns they are being loaded—I have found instances where one single vehicle, and I do not mean a truck and a Iraller but one unit, was carrying as much as 60,000 pounds 'of freight. This together with the weight of the motor vehicle itself or the trailer, whichever it might be, is causing a load on the highways that they were never built to stand and that they could not stand and besides, hey- are a very serious menace to people using the highways. I have had several men of means tell me in the last few weeks lhat they have disposed of their fine automobiles and have pur chased small, light cars of the Ford or Chevrolet type io knock about town in and that they cannot risk! their, lives and their nrop- erty and the lives of their families on the highways at all under tho present conditions.

Paper dollars ar'e kept in circulation at a cost, of about 2 i>er cent a year, whcrcus.. th« loss from abrasion of silver Is almost Infinitesimal. And of course the popularizing of a silver dollar would be a great boon for the silver mines of the'far west. Some Ij)st, Some Saved The treasury says there arc 38,234,000 of the large silver dollars —sometimes called "carLwhceK 1 — outLlaiidlng. Of course these arc riot all in circulation. Some of ll'.em have' rolled down into the severs and otherwise out of circulation, ^ry ?.rc kept in banks.

Two hundred miles away at Joneslioro, an anxious owner was hanging on every word that came over the telephone wires. Hopefully, he was seeking to identify his lost dog. "What?" barked the captain irritably. "You want to sfiak to him!" , Then—understandingly—"By George) I believe you've ' hit the nail on the head. Just a moment. I'll hold him up to the telephone."

Tlie act aho provided for replacement of the money by purchase of American silver at n dollar an ounce. Britain bought 310,000,000 dollars, which the treasury replaced as specified, coining "cartwheels" from 1321 to 1928. Senator Odie's proposed reduction in the size of the silver dollar would correspond with the declined purchasing power of sliver. A 1930 silver dollar, lie figures, should be about 00 per" cent as large as ;he 1913 silver dollar in order to linve it represent an equivalent purchasing i»wer. In 1918 nml 1913, silver was worth more than 51 nn ounce on the open market, reaching $1.12 in the former year. But last year the price declined to 53.3 cents, which was 4.9 cents N'.ver than 1928. Earlier this year the Engineering and Mining Juurnal explained the silver situation as follows: "During the last'14 years, {he world has learned lhat subsidiary coins .are actually tokens and that, provided currency systems are maintained upon a stable gold basis, money that changes from hand to hand can be composed of paper or base metal without detriment to general conveniences or safety. As n result, not only have substitutes been brought into use, but the contents of such coins as are still minted in silver have been reduced and the supplies of Ihe silver market have been augmented by vast quantities of demonetized metal." From Mrs. Pasha ((To the editor:) I would appreciate it very much if you would correct the error you made in your paper about the Great Pasha..

In rdcr to give a blood transfusion successfully and safely, it is neces- to have blood of the same ype as dial of the individual con- :crned. Human beiugs vary in heir blood lyiies. Sometimes the hild malier of U'.e blood of one >erson will agglutinate or clump ogclher the red cells of the blood of another. Sometimes the fluid natter of the blood will break up or dissolve the red cells of the blood of another. Obviously, cither of these processes is exceedingly dangerous, and ifls necessary to be sure that the blood of one person will not. be affected ty t;-.c blood of another before Ihe transfusion is made.

It Is then possible to inject into the person concerned any amcunt of blMd that may be considered desirable.
