Shoppers were quick to make use of the meters and there is a minimum of complaint over the fee charged for the privilege of parking. But the absence of complaints should not be taken as a cue that more meters will improve the situ- > ation. Parking meter manufacturers ever •re anxious to sell more and more meters, and there also is the possibility that cities seeking more and more revenue might look to more meters as a possible source of more revenue. No city ever should consider the use of parking meters from the revenue- producing angle. Better ways can be found for providing funds which may be needed for municipal purposes. Before the meters were placed on Main Street, a survey was made by an engineer representing the manufacturer of the meters to determine how many meters would be needed and where they should be placed. Since that time, meters were authorized for the 100 block on South Second Street, and between Second and Railroad on Ash. Additional meters may be needed and if traffic engineers recommend them after a survey, they should be installed. On the other hand, every lime a block is added to the parking meter area, it means that the parking problem is aggravated for those who must park their cars downtown for several hours each day. For them, the five- cents-per hour parking fee is unreasonable and the best interests of the city would not be served by forcing these cars into the areas where the streets are narrow, or on parking lots if they were available. •oal ojm-»tor« »r« not philanthropist*. And whtn on« of them suggest* that they might absorb another wagt rise, it probably means that they can afford it. The term mechanization, like *uch terms as mass production and assembly line, i* usually associated with industries surrounded by four walls. Tht greatest development, of course, hai been in factory production. But now more machines—and hence more economy, speed and efficiency—are becoming part of the mining picture. This is neither accident nor haphazard evolution. It is a growing necessity, as Harold Von Thaden pointed out in a recent speech. Mr. Von Thaden is an executive of Hewitt-Robins, Inc., a firm that makes belt conveyors and accordingly knowg something about moving minerals and the material that separates minerals from miners. He said that our supply of high-grade iron ore, though still measured in decades, is low enough to require conservation through processing of low- grade ore. Three limes as much of the latter ore is required to make the same amount of steel. So he estimated that we shall soon have to have 400,000,000 more tons of ore a year for our iron and steel requirements. Mr. Von Thaden also said that growing requirements of coal for electric power and for the synthetic oil program that the Bureau of Mines recommends will call for 250,000,000 more tons of coal a year. All industry depends on these two basic materials. And ultimately the speed of industrial production is geared to the speed with which they can be recovered and handled. It is possible, then, that we are at the beginning of a period when something like the continuous flow of the production line will have to be applied to mining. There is another aspect of this trend. Government planners are talking these days about "stockpiling ore in the ground." They are thinking of a possible war emergency in which foreign ore might be unavailable. This thought applies as we!) to overseas oil reserves. A mechanized mining industry could "stockpile," in effect, by handling ore more quickly and efficiently, and by reaching coal which now is impossible or unfeasible to uncover. Not Name, but Principle Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., charges thiil Frank Costello, a gambler, ordered Tammany Hall to deny him the Democratic nomination for Congress. "When a Costello can tell H Roosevelt he can't run on the Democratic ticket ... I, as a Democrat, thank God lor the Liberal Party," he said. H might have been more democratic (with a small "d") if Mr. Roosevelt had said that when a gambler can tell anyone he can't run Tor office, there is something wrong. The issue doesn't hinge on one's name being Roosevelt. Mechanization May Bring Production Line Mining John L. Lewis has consistently supported mechanization of mines and high individual productivity. Now he has given notice that he expects a "dividend" for this support in the form of a shorter work day, higher welfare payments and a more even distribution of work for his miners. A few days ago a coal operator said that he thought that if there was another rise in labor costs ahead, he and his colleagues would have to absorb it rather than pass it along to the customers. Making allowance for the usual measure of guff, these statements indi- cat« that both sides have accepted mechanization ag being here to stay. Mechanisation will mean lower costs. 'At least it always has, and there is no ruson why it shouldn't in mining. The Always Permissible in Making a Trade Dulles Fears Third World War Unless U.S. Okays Atlantic Pact Sunday School Lesson Bj WILLIAM E. G1LROY, D. D. It Is always safe to speak against sin theoretically, or In general terms. Everybody—like the minister whose sermon President Coolldge laconically reported—Is "against It." It Is only when one gets down to personalities and cases, when one says, "Thou art the man," or "That action was diabolical," that sinners get. nasty and strike back. In the vigorous denunciations of sin during His last days, Jesus got down to both personalities and cases. When He spoke of hypocrisy He named the Scribes and Pharisees, the official representatives and established "authorities" of rel^ton; and He attacked their specific acts of hypocrisy and evildoing. If there were devout and earnest Scribes and Pharisees, as there u*cloubtedly were, who had never devoured widows' houses, or dona the things that Jesus denounced, they had no reason to take His charges to themselves. But there were plenty to whom His word* applied. "He taught them us one having authority, and not as their Scribes." Those words mark a strange fact anil a striking contrast. The Scribes were officially and ostensibly the repository of authority, the interpreters of the law; yet here was a young man from a hill town, unimportant PETER EDSONS Washington Hews Notebook Manicured Lawns Impress Visitor Attending Washington Garden Party WASHINGTON — (NKA1 — A also color spectator at one of the two, 500- 'butler'." guest Spring Garden parties given >y ex-Ambassador and Mrs. Joseph 5.

Jrlend asked tx-Congrcsswoman Claire Boothe Luce for some political advice on how lo get elected In the Nutmeg Slate. She gave five rules: "Explain nothing. Deny everything. Demand the proof. Don't listen lo II. Attack the opposition." Bowles paid no altcntlon to this cynical and sinister advice whicli so belittles the intelligence of the American voter. He got elected, ton.

It challenges analysis. Whey would war be highly probable? Without trying lo read Mr. Dulles' mind, I believe we can get our answer by going back to a hypothetical situation which this column discussed long ago. This Is that if Russia should be able to establish Communism across Western Europe to the English Channel another world war would be inevitable. America and Britain then would stand alone among the great powers against the Bolshevist drive. The corollary to this hypothetical situation is thai, if it Is to be avoided, the Communist offensive must be held on the line which It now occupies through Central Europe; The only thing which will hold It there Is a strong and united Western Europe. Since time is of the essence, t^^t unity and strength can be provided only through some such alliance ai the Atlantic pact. U.S. Must bold I'rescnl Course That would be my explanation. | Mrs. Dulles told the committee it is dealing with a totally, different world situation now than It jojs a year ago. Then the pact'£^-s only being discussed but now il has been formally signed.

VIEWS OF OTHERS ^arable of Government A parable of government today, with Its grants, aids and boons to citizenry, comes from Atlanta, Georgia. It is an Incident related there by a trolley conductor. He said the price of ride tokens was to go up slightly the next day. They would cost about two- thirds of * cent more each than the present late of three for a quarter. One lady decided to provide herself with a goodly supply of the old tokens, and she went from trolly to trolley, taking snort rides, and buying tokens each time, three (or a quarter. Finally, the conductor related, somebody convinced her that she waj losing money, since It was costing her a token for every ride—many lime* the trifling saving p«r token. We don't know why she didn't go to a drug store and buy a quart or so of the things. The news item didn't explain. But aren't millions of us doing just what that woman did, on a vastly bigger scale, in demanding government handouts? For all we can gel is our own tax money back, less the cost of collecting tt and dishing It out. We're being "taken for a ride" In a large, detrimental way. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT. IN HOLLYWOOD I!)
