G OD HATH promised pardon to him that repenteth, but he hath not promised repentance to him that sinneth.—Anselm. SOLVING TRAFFIC JAMS T HE BEST WAY to solve the problem of traffic congestion and jams in Altoona is to open up more highways so that there may be a greater distribution of the load. This does not imply that we need any more streets, with the exception of the' opening of the ends o( Thirteenth and Seventh avenues. We mean that existing highways, now comparatively little used, should b« repaired and made available for use by the public. 'Conditions on tile eastern Side of the city would be aided greatly if Fifth avenue south from Thirteenth street were improved by eliminating the street car tracks and re- paving. It is not good public policy that practically all the traffic on the eastern side of the city should be obliged to move over Sixth and Seventh avenues. Eighth and Ninth avenuei, as well » Fifth, should be smoothed up so that they may bear their share of the load. It will pay In dollars and cents to spend a little money for such improvements, for if all traffic is run over the two highways named, the paving will soon be worn out and then they will have to be repaved. The problem on the western side of the city is not so simple. The remedy is the opening of Thirteenth avenue to Eighteenth street and the widening of the Eighteenth street culvert. Of course, council will have to solve the problem one project at a time. Outside help can be obtained. Federal assistance through the works progress administration is always available. For some of them the state highway department is responsible, as for example, the Logan boulevard. On Fifth avenue the traction company must help and for widening the culvert the railroad company must be brought into action. .The way to do these things is to do them. The opening of Twelfth avenue a score of years ago will always stand as an example of how such needed improvement 1 ) may be made when there is a will and a nated by the Republicans of Rhode Island as their candidate for governor.

D. C.—New VV York's election campaign is the big one of 1938 and it ties In with the presidential year 1940 from several interesting and important angles. Candidates for governor are: District Attorney Thomas B. Dewey, 36-year-old racket buster j who accepted the Republican nomination with a promise to continue his welfare on crime and especially crime linked with politics. Many Republicans regard Dewey as a presidential "white hope." Governor Herbert H. Lehman, now ending: a third term, immensely popular and standing on CENTRECOUNTY By GRACE K. EBKIGHT. (Part Two.)

HE DIFFERENCE between life and death on the crowded highway! of our nation is a matter of split seconds and, quite frequently, even split seconds are sliced and shaved thinner and thinner. When two cars approach each other at fifty miles an hour, the speed limit in Pennsylvania, the equivalent i» one car traveling 100 milei an hour approaching an object that is standing still. R k just a little hard to imagine what would happen to an automobile, traveling 100 miles an hour, striking something of about equal weight None of us has been privileged to see such a demonstration. However, we get a good idea of what happens when two cars, traveling In opposite directions, actually come together, because such mishaps are not rare occurrences. Spilt seconds and inches of apr.ce between life and death are not very reassuring. We must look to some remedy t« Insure more safety on lh« highway! than we have at the tlra*. At K recent convention of the American Psychological association tn Ohio city, It was brought INTENSIVE CAMPAIGN. : T HAS BEEN a long time since we have had a state campaign as intensive as the one which will :iid one month from tomorrow. The Democratic and Republican candidates have been campaigning or weeks and their speeches have >een filled with general charges against the opposition, but for the nost part there has been a com- nendable lack of personalities by ioth sides. The old-time tactics of one can- idate for governor starling 1 in by :allmg the oilier candidate for gov- irnor a horse thief and then grad- mlly growing abusive has been noded.

To-lay candidates are more given to especting each other and con- ining their hustings harangues to ho issues affecting the welfare of he state, such as taxation and levelopment of industries, for example, and the fundamental prin- :iples on which the party stands. Speakers do not fool anybody with inlitical half truths. People are oo intelligent. They want facts; hey'Il do their own thinking—and oting. Therefore, while we rend much f excessive taxation, driving in- ustries out of the state, misman- gement, relief expenditures, the, nemployed, unemployment com- ensation, social security, etc., we little reflecting on the char-1 cter of the respective party stand- rd bearers and thi.s is as it should Let the camp;ii»n become so hot will sizzle, but discuss issues for ie information of the electorate. t's the best politics in the long run.

Toledo and Cleveland, i the New York Democratic party and the ties—if any—between some of its shadier characters and some of the party's state and national leaders have never been exposed. Dewey in the course of his investigations may have learned a great deal. Rumors says he has. Dewey already has been attacked by Lehman for being willing to run for governor less than a year after election to a four-year term as district attorney, although Dewey has promised to .stay in office at least until the next gubernatorial term and prosecute Hines a second time. Dewey's methods of prosecution, which his opponents will assert have infringed on civil liberties, are A new fountain pen's on the market now that can make an instan- indlng on Oct. 29. Alternately one will lead off in .he debate with a time limit of thirty-five minutes. The other will reply in forty-five minutes, then the first speaker will have ten minutes for rebuttal.

The last Lime we had a joint debate in Altoona WHS in ]89fi. •lowever, the speakers on that oc- lasion were not candidates. It was the year wiien the contest was waged on the silver question, upon which the Democratic party split, the silverites nominating William Jennings Bryan and the gold Democrats either supporting William McKinley, the Republican candidate, or the Palmer- Buckner ticket, named by the gold wing of their party. The debaters were Thomas H, Greevy, supporting the gold standard, and Augustus V. Dively, representing the Bryan supporters. The debate was held in' the old Eleventh Avenue Opera House and the presiding chairman was Attorney Adie A. Stevens of Tyrone, long a leader in the county and state of the Prohibition party. The debate drew a capacity house, for everybody was interested in the discussions of the monetary question, Many a political campaign has been fought out in this country when there were really no issues of any importance at stake. peaksN in sugar loaf formation.

He made competitors iook cheap when he made harp or timbrel weep. But morphine was his favored lunch; when woes came to him in a bunch; he'd fill himself with that fierce drug, and good hard cider in a jug, and then he'd take his pan of ink and vainly try to write and think. When he was loaded with morphine he turned out verse like a machine, and like a thing of cogs and springs, you hear him, creaking when he sings. Had he but left morphine alone, he. might have occupied the throne 'where' Shakespeare in his grandeur sits, while Milton loafs around: and knits."

Nature is kindling the flaming colors which within a few days will cloak them in grandeur. Lest man's carelessness set the hills aflame in a literal sense, the department of forests and waters has assigned men to occupy the forest fire observation towers on Saturday, to maintain a watch'Un- til the danger season is past, that fires may be detected as they start and crews assigned to bring them under control. There are few persons who do not appreciate the beauty of the forests in October, yet among those whose desire to see this beauty at close hand causes them to journey to the woods there will he some :ele«s actions who by thoughtle: will mar this beauty, not alone for this season, but for years to come. Matches, cigarets or the contents of a. pipe, dropped into dried leaves while they are still burning, arc the most common causes of forest fires. Protecting the forests is not the job of the towcrman, the ranger or the crew of fire fighters alone. It is a public responsibility. Only if the public does its job well will the beauty and economic value of our forests be protected. DIAMONDS "GRAINED.
