This is partly due to increased acreages planted. Along with this transformation in harvesting machinery and . methods ha# gone a change in the class of labor. Where once the wheat belt became a magnet for hoboes and non- deaorlpta drawn from the cities as well as the rural communities, the majority of workers now come from the Ozftrks and the southern states. While the hobo, as distinguished froin the "bum" was a comparatively goftd worker who followed the harvest from "year to year, he/ seems to be Vanishing as a class, driven from the freight trains by stricter regulations, and facing a new method of transportation in the motor car. "The men from the south, on the other hand, are of a higher class, because they are familiar with farm work and implements, and are stronger and bettor able to stand the heat. The Combine has brought a change in thef part played by the farmer's Wife." Threshing days were busy-'ones for the farm women who were expected to, and did, furnish meals for the threshing crew. And meals for a crew that worked from sunrise to sunset, were no quick lunches.\ The threshing crew; however, is eliminated by the combine, and the women's role Is easier. / Wheat farming corporations were a further development made possible by the machine in agriculture, and are adaptations of big business methods. A> company, for Instance, will lease a strlb of land across Kansas and \ylth ttW combine harvester, will . cut the entire area, working northward as the sun turns the fields a golden brown.

Ir 1924 he Jnade an early star.t lor_ the RepuBHcaft pi.esldential nomination but was compelled to -retire when early primaries indicated Coolidge was a strong favorite. After a long period of ernblttermeht, Johnson finally reconciled himse.f, declared during a call at the White House one day that he had become Immune to the sting of .the presidential bee, arid has since been pretty much his normal self, regaining fully his personal popularity wit "a fellow senators. i Johnson gained national fame iri prosecuting the San Francisco 'graft cases nearly a quarter of a century ago. He was elected governot' twice, ran as vice presidential candidate with Roosevelt In 1912, and then in 1916 he was sent to the senate-by California at the same time the state voted for WoodroW Wilson and turned the balance in the electoral college against Charles Ei Hughes., It was reported at the time that Hughes had'snubbed Johnson because he had gone Bull Moose in 1912. .Though it is now said by many that Hughes was a victim oi tactless frlehds who did not advise, him that Johnson was stopping at the same hotel during a California campaign trip, the Voters of the slate at the time thought Hughes had snubbed Johnson and their resentment from that impression, whether true or false, cost Hughes the presidency. Johnson made a dash for the Republican presidential nomination in 1920 but failed. He then refused to become Hardlng's vice presidential candidate, and thus missed two chances'at the White House In one election year.

Johnson's office was . rtfted on twd- successive nights recently and his personal correspondence Was Inspected. He offered no theory and his only comment was that the letters' were such as to burn the ears of those they concerned. He was inclined to pass the incident off lightly though some ot his colleagues whose offices also had been tampered with were indignant. 1 Johnson long has ' been associated with Borah In senate fights. They Were leading figures In the defeat of the League of Nations.' But on the .London naval treaty they nave split— Borah Is supporting it as chairman of the foreign' relations committee. -With Borah's alH Johnson might have been able to defeat the London treaty, but unable to obtain It, his Chances appear remote at this writing.

' * ' ' ^' '^^ in ALTOONA On the ground where Colonel Edwin W. Drake completed the world's first oil well, in 1859, the ' Pennsylvania Refining Company is producing a pure Pennsylvania motor oil that is attracting wide attention m engineering circles. Conventional refining methods have been thrown into the discard. Anew distilline process>has been developed, that eliminates the long superheating at high temperatures which cooks much of the life out of ordinary oils. A truly double-i mileage oil has been produced, an oil that will give you more miles per quart, an oil that affords inore efficient lubrication for today's ' high speed motors. Car manufacturer's engineers indorse this oil. Many fleet owners, who figure operating costs to a fraction of a penny, have standardized on its use. Speed boat owners have found that it often doubles the life of their high-speed motors. The national outboard motor championship raceinMiami was won with Penn Drake oil. This double-mileage oil costs no more than ordinary oils made from Pennsylvania crudes. Buy it where you see tne sign of the world's first oil well. \ t Master Oil Company Altoona, Pennsylvania Phone 2-0246" iipenn t I 1 drake ' dumb* T H I DOUBLE MILEAGE O .1 L Dresses Flat Crepe*, Flowered Prints and Chiffon Sleeveless, cape sleeve, long sleeves, capelet and puff sleeve styles— also smart tailored effects— in richly colorful flower print and new summery shades.
