"Farm fniulles who lire building, leincdeting. or planning to build or remodel their homes should give special though, and care to the floors." li, has been pointed out by Miss Cora Lee Coleman, home demonstration agent. Tho ai- tracth»ness and durability of Uiem is determined by. the kind and condition of the wood, con.stiuction; and choice and careful application to the finish. "Plour-s of a well-built house should be stranir. level, tight nn:l comfortable for walking and stand- lug. They should nil be double with a layer of .building paper between the subfloor and the finished one. When a new floor is laid on top of an old one. the boards .should b= placed In the opposite direction," she warned. "This will make '.Me new one level mid will prevent bulging." Finishing protects the wood, simplifies care, and.makes floors more attractive. Before thc finish is applied tile floor should be clean, smooth and dry. Any cracks should >e filled with homemade or eom- merclal filler, unless paint is "> be used, this should bc colored lo natch the finish, the agent pointed out. In many instances. Ihc old finish should be removed before, thc-new one is applied". Surface or penetrating tirU.ihc.i may be applied lo wood floors. Surface finishes, which merely cover the top of the wood, are shellac, varnish and piilnl, stie said. Penetrating finishes, which actually .enter the wood before hardening, are oil and penetrating seal. The seal, comparatively new on the market, can bc used on cither a new or an old floor and on cither soft, or, hardwood. It Is well-adapted for floors which re- i^ 1 ™ heavy wear. Additional information may Iv; oblirincd from thc county Extension office on the construction, inish and cure of floors, she stated. piness. Nuts to tlie FCC. Nuts to this walkie-talkie business.

HOW FAR --- How far have wo gone towards mtLiotinl disgrace ami anarchy? For years and yoav.s, to all of us, the dignity of those elderly bhick- rubccl IUL-II who comprised our .Suprctne Court, wove the very epi- touiK of deinucrticlns* dignity. They wurc to us, that sanctuary wherein politics and corruption never catered. Every American could look with pride and -say. "There are the veal guardians of our Constitution and our Freedom." Alas! where can we now look for Dignity and Justice? Our revered Supreme Court is supreme in the mmclr, ot Americans no snore, Franklin Hoosevolt started it when he proudly presented us with his famed "Nine Young Men." To appoint men to our Supreme Court who were "Favorable" to his "New Deal" was to play politics with our most, sacred branch of government. This act.of Lin over zealous President, was the wind which today reaps the whirl-wind. Space will not permit a long resume of the disgraceful scandals now surrounding this sacred body. May I briefly mention facts about two of the present members of the Supreme Court, which facts would have, in better days, been sufficient cause for dismissal from the Highest Tribunal in the land. Justice Murphy has been the most tireless Cocktail party nUemler in the capital, tin Washington, cocktails are invariably mixed with politics, along with other potent spirits.) Perhaps your v/riter is too old-fashioned, but he believes that no cocktail party lounge livcarti lias any business as a member of the United Ktntns Supreme Court. Especially so when it is common knowledge that these parties arc political "get- totjcthcrs." The second fact, nnd the one which has caused the present disgraceful disrepute to fall upon the court, concerns Mr. Justice Black. There was enough dis.sention when Mr. Black was nominated by Mr. Hoosevolt to have warned thc President, that he was the wrong man for the place. Well, to be brief. Mr. Black has been making speeches to Mr. Sidney HUlman's C. I. O. Political Action Committee. Those who have cars to hear let them hear! Herein lies a multitude of unstated wisdom. Yes, our Union Heads, our colored racc.s, our Schools our "Great" men in High Places aud now ........ I blush lo .say it— Our Supreme Court! ........ And the Reel Ogre of the Kremlin only Smiles.
