During August the city inspector issued 51,185,180 worth of building permits, bringing the eight-month total for the year to $4,209,386. . The city schools are bursting at the seams with a record enrollment of 5,227, an increase of 823 pupils over last year. A two million-dollar high school, used for the first timse Wednesday, already threatens to become crowded. A defense housing project to provide for 600 families is under; construction but city officials believe another 600 houses may be needed, in addition to mushrooming private construcion. John Taylor, 30-year-old editor of the Journal, wrote with unrestrained enthusiasm: "We applaud an invention which can well promise happiness to more than one extant wallflower. Who knows how many young girls, to whom the door of romance has hitherto remained bolted, may yet discover that their air is their crowning glory." The young editor foresaw certain hazards, however, in an invention still in its infancy. He cited "the possibility of an embarrasss- ing bang or two in an overcrowded room where the thermostate is not in good condition" and the obvious fact that "a suit modeled around a pneumatic figure would not look its best if a d. b. fitting suddenly became single-breasted."

Officials say the .1950 census figures showing Salina's population as 26,176' and the 1951 assessor's count of 26,238 are certainly out of date. Why all this activity?

The question: Is Mrs. Mary McClelland of San Pablo, Calif., really Mary Agnes Moroney, kidnaped 22 years ago at the age of two? Two newspapers thought she was. The Chicago Daily News and Oakland, Calif., Tribune spent months compiling evidence in an effort to prove that the missing Mary Agnes had finally been found. When they felt their case was sufficiently strong, they brought Mrs. McClelland to Chicago to meet Mrs. Catherine Moroney, 40-year-old mother of Mary Agnes and seven other children. The newspapers based their deduction on scientific comparisons of traits of the Moroney family and Mrs. McClelland. But there were discrepancies, too. A doctor at Martinez, Calif., said he personally had arranged for the adoption of Mrs. McClelland by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Beck in 1927, shortly after her birth in a California nursing home. He said she could not be the kidnaped Moroney child. The kidnaping took place in 1930. San Pablo police telegraphed Chicago police that Mrs. Beck, Mrs. McClelland's foster mother, told them she adopted Mrs. McClelland in November, 1927, more than two years before Mary Agnes Morone3' was kidnaped. After a visit at the Moroney home on the West Side Thursday, both women still were uncertain whether the answer to the Moroney kidnaping riddle had been solved.

Police Judge Tells Lions Of His Work James Fussell explained the ivorkings of the police court, over which he presides as judge, to members of the Lions Club Thursday. He defended the police department and the court in cases where parties were arrested because of accidents arising from alleged intoxication. Many dismissals of such charges are due to the failure on the part of witnesses to testify when .called, the judge said. Fussell stated that in the tliree- and one-half years he has occupied the bench, he has thoroughly enjoyed the experience since it is, in reality, a court of human relations. Many of those appearing habitually in police court seem to be burdened with problems, he said. Complaints of citizens who become indignant when issued tickets for overparking, failure to observe stop signs and speeding were answered by Judge Fussell w'ith the comment that police are only performing their duties in the interest of safety and fair play to everyone. Fines are graduated according to the rate of speed. There is no counsel in the police court, the testimony of the arresting officer is weighed with that of the defendant, the judge explained. Guests at the meeting were Father Jack Doyle, Little Rock.
