But' careful estimates indicate Hint it will rajuiro a cash outlay of from $185,0110 to 5200,000 to iiaiuin: the additional land that is needed. The present state of the weather is not such as to emjriiiisizu lliu need of flood control. Most of us arc wishing for more water, not less. Hut dry as it tiiay be today nothinjj is more certain than that within a year or two there will ho lovoc breaks or I limits of levee,-breaks along Kig Lake and Little Hiver, with Uic losses and Ihe -, demoralizing micei'tHinly -\hi\\. always accompany high water I rouble. Scores of tliousands of acres of the linest • land in Mississippi county, stretching all the way from Hig Lake at the north end of the county to Dyoss Colony at the south end, is subject to overflow if the,waters of Little Hivcr gel out of control. We have tlio opportunely now to end for all time the properly losses which result from such overflows, to free Uirsc lands from it lineal which is holding bade their development and retarding (he progress of Ihc entire county. Tlio thing to do is to tackle the job now, not wait for another lloo;i to emphasize its necessity. The amount of money that is required is considerable, but it is small in proportion lo tlm benclHs that will result. It is not a question of whether we can afford the ?200,000 or so thai may be necessary. \V C simply cannot OUT OUR WAY '"SKOSE riTSriHrTT* r^O'vV. 5,0 TKLR \ WON'T BE NO Ml<=,-- ' afford to do so without (he protection thai is ofl'ercd. The hcnclils lo le ob- laincd so' far outweigh the cost (hat there should h« no real dill'iaiHy in wofltiiig out a plan fur raising the necessary money. TUESDAY, Wtin> Going Rucmilion A 10-year survey by the National Kcercatioii Association brings out Ihe important tact that Americans in the last decade have doubted their interest in leisure-lime pursuits. The survey revealed Unit in £i()-l communities tin; trend is del'milely l»- wiird what might he called "rccrea- tion-mindedmws"; Loaches, public golf courses, swimming pools, skating rinks, and similar play spots have doubled and tripled in number; and, at the same time, the standards of these leisure-time programs have gone up. In a word, the milion is burning lo loosen up. lt' K karniiiK Unit play has its place in |he scheme of tilings, All in all, heru's a decidedly healthI'ul trend, Certain to become even mor« pronounced as working hours are gradually reduced. Office of \\d-iy Temporary, withdrawal of Chairman .lames A. Farley froni the office of postmaster general to lie free for tho Democratic campaign certainly raises a vilal question nlmul Llie whole con- duel of the office as a seal of party patronage distribution. Not dial Mr. Farley is jiny more culpable than any of his Kcpiiblicnn predecessors. Hut Ihe criticism is of the sort of .system that permits a cabinet post to he saddled with the patronage problem. Here is a custom highly inimical | () civil service and utterly unethical on any ({rounds. To realize thai fact, one lias but lo recall I lie unsavory gossip that has trailed the department in recent years because of its patronage connections. So, if \ V(! nnist |, 1IV( , a central patronage bursary, lot's have one and call it just that. Hut lot's locate il a long way from lh u office of postmaster general. I have reached Ihe aye of wisdom, when « ivoniiiii Is no more than B hemuiful seUiiis for the emerald «L her throat. —Jjlr Ciny Standing, movie nclor. * * t The people today are just »s religions MS ever, but thi-y don't go to church.

As (hey came out into tho open air, a sharp peal of Iliundor roared about lliem, and splashes of rain fell. Once more in Ihc sheller of the house, Pat rapidly recovered. "You can't down an Irishman v.'illioul a flfilil," ho toW Claire When lie finished reciting all that! had happened to him, D.'in Dallas had uccn lislenini! <loscly, Now lie leaned forward.

Now you'd belter come Jin-ass with wlial you know, or—" A blinding Hash of lightning cr.ickled through the room, followed almost simultaneously by a deafening clash of Ihunder. Then from onlside, came another terrific, tearing noise. Everyone rushed to Ihe window, jusl as the grenf twin-lopped pine tree swayed violcndy once or twice then loppled lo Ihc ground with a roar like a lilanie shriek of despair. For a slunnett second no one moved or s|>okc. Then a voice broke in from Ihe doorway. "There! I saw him coming in the library window!" Hob Steele swayed weakly and clutched the door for .support "Bob!" Pat ran lo his side and eased him inlo a chair. Dim Dallas diet not waif, but snatched his gun from his pocket and ran along the hall and threw open f?ie library door. Tlic rest followed.

"He said if il was nnd I disobeyed him, he'd find a way lo punish me. That's why he always left me home." "But why shouldn't he leave you home, Susie?"
