DER FODDERLAND Fine Family Doctors -A general practitioner in a Colorado mountain town of less than 600 population has become the American doctor of the year. Dr. Archer C. Sudan, 56, native of South Dakota, was given the American Medical Association's first annual medal for exceptional community service. In 1926 he stopped in the drug store of the village of Kremmling on a trout-fishing vacation from his Chicago University research job. A villager ran in to teii the druggist about four acutely ill children. Dr. Sudan answered the call. He discovered he vyas the only physician within a radius of 80 miles, applied for a year's leave of absence from his university post, and eventually resigned to stay in Colorado where snow closed roads four months of the year. lie has traveled from farm to farm by bobsled, and never refused a call. The runners up for the honor, Dr. W. L. Pressly of Due East, S. C., and Dr. Jacob Oliphant of Farmersburg, Ind., both have records of service to humanity comparable with that of the winner. Such recognition is splendid. Too often heroes go unsung. Doubtless the Colorado doctor feels his labors have provided their own reward, 'for he must have a sense of quiet inward satisfaction, knowing his life has been given to helping those who, without him, would have had no physician in time of sickness. He has had hard work, but he must have had more fun, too, than he would have had at his Chicago post. Personal Health Service BT William flrndy. M.

Now they want Congress to go further. Congress should improve its control of the government's finances, and check more carefully on requests of the executive department. It should get more help for its standing committees, not by putting congressmen's sons and daughters on the payroll, but by hiring trained people who know government and economies. There is one omission. Nothing is said about abolishing or modifying the seniority rule, which makes a man chairman of an important committee merely because he has a hold on his home district and gets re-elected longer than his fellow-members. This system made Congressman And rev.- J. May, of Kentucky. since convicted for bribe-taking, chairman of the Military Affairs Committee during World War II. Each committee should elect its own chairman, and thereby enhance its chance of getting an able man. But this change seems too drastic for Congress t.'» adopt without more pressure From the home folks. That was probably why the Heller committee dropped this recommendation out. t h a t t h e 130,000.000 suffer from the extremely arid atmosphere, because most of them do get out of any home, office, school or stor" f put into practice for the duration of ;ho season of artificial heating. it for brief intervals two or t h r e e ) The first suggestion is this: Fix times in the day.

Congress Agree Taxes Should Exceed Federal Budget Cost By Cameron Dockery Awakening (Oswego Palladium-Times) Awakening, finally, to the threat ^ J i i c h the -Si- Lawrence Iliver seaway presents to the future of the Port of New York, Mayor William O'Dwyer will spearhead opposition in the metropolitan area to any plan which Congress may advance for the scheme in the present session, and will have support of the port authorities of Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore, likewise rising again to view the plan with alarm. The Port of New York, once was energetic in furthering its export business, now has lost much of its bulk grain business, which has been divided between Montreal and St. Lawrence River ports, the Gulf ports, via the Mississippi, and Philadelphia and Baltimore, the decadence unquestionably being due to centering attention on other features of the great- city's water-front activity. The Port of Albany has been handling, through Oswcgo and the Barge Canal, the only all-water shipments of export grain, west of'the Mississippi and while these cargoes reached the sea through New York, via the Hudson, New York derived no more benefit from them than Montreal and Quebec will have in the future if the seaway is developed. Mayor O'Dwyer says development of the 2,200,000 horsepower in the international rapids section may be undertaken by the state of New York, under present laws, without becoming a part of the navigational scheme, which has been maintained in other quarters. recognizing the value of developed energy, but questioning seriously utility of the navigational project, which again makes the proposition purely sectional. Western state adherents of the project care nothing about the electric energy; eastern states are little interested in the navigation features, except so far as they are likely to prove detrimental. By James Marlow i WASHINGTON. /P -- Here's an ABC on that big load--the i budget--which President Truman '; dumped on Congress Monday. | It involves you: How much tax you'll have to pay and how the i government spends your money. ! Also it will cause so much work ] and argument jn Congress you'll · be hearing about it from now till .tune. The budget is Mr. Truman's idea about taxes, government spending anu pa.\Hi^ uu me ^ul/I.i. debt in the 1949 fiscal year. j That's the year beginning J u l v 1. 194?. and ending June 30. 1949. ' The government can pa\ its way only so long as it collects mor- money in taxes t h a n it has to pay out for expense^ When expenses are greater than taxes, the government must borrow money from banks and other , lOurces.

It tries this ! e\ cry year. j Bu* this year--the election year ; of 1948--something else is mixed ', up in this whole business. | The Republicans are bent on | c u t t i n g income taxes. Some of j them talk of cutting taxes as much as_S5.600,OOp,000. go\ernment would collect a total of S14 500 000.000 in taxes. A tax cut of 55.690.000,000 would bring t h a t down to S3S.900.000.000.

Chapter 18 A STUNNED silence filled the little drugstore. Conversation died as though a switch had been turned cutting it off. All eyes were centered on the small barefooted boy who stood in front o." Pam Carter. Sensing the effect of his startling announcement he began to swagger a bit. He tucked nis grubby thumbs in his overall suspenders and scratched the back of one leg with the foot of the other. "I said Constable Binny wants you . . ." he repeated. Pam nodded and slid off her stool. "I heard you. son." Brent, who had been buying adhesive plaster, crossed to take her elbow and together they left the store, the small boy strutting im- . \ - j v . o i..n,; ! · ; eh ,. in; t ion of m a n y t l i a l p i c s r - n l i musi accom- Uep.

Unless for some reason he wanted it made public. 1 suppose in a village like Cove Point there's no such thing as a secret." "Well, it looks like the whole town is in on this." Pam gestured toward the end of the dock. Most of the workers had come out of the sardine factory and were gathered in a knot. Two men were working s winch used for hoisting cargoes from dories. The wheel, badly in need of oiling, turned now with a rasping shriek that vied with the pene- t r a t i n g cries of seagulls overhead. It was a grav day. The ocean rolled in in sullen leaden swells, slapping against the DiJings and not breaking until they were^almost on the beach As Pam looked toward the end of the pier and saw the winch l i f t a sodden inert bundle onio thr- warped n i a n k i n g she knew this wa~ ?. scenr she would always remember Brent's fingers tightened on hn arm.

Chapter 19 DAM wab not as surprised by Constable Binny's words as he Evidently had expected. She had reached the conclusion in the tower that the strange man in manner's clothing had been murdered so what difference did it make if it was done with a bullet :r a bludgeon? But Brent's jaws set rigidly and when Binny asked him if he. owned a gun, he sworo softly and announced he'd never used it. Binny examined it at the cottage, muttered something noncommittal and warned Brent that he'd better obtain a permit. When he had gone Pam settled herself before the firepiacc and leaned back against Brent's knees. "Darling, there's something pe- tuliar going on around here and we're mixed up in it" "Nonsense, Pam! Our only con- But when the group parted for her and she gazed down at the dead man lying in a widening pool of sea water, she wasn't so sure. The pier lurched sickeningly; she shut her eyes and swallowed hard. "He's not a pretty sight, ma'am, but if you'll just take a quick look." Constable Binny kneeling by the man's head peered up at her. The onlookers held their breaths. So still was it that except for the seagull's cries, the strain and creak of the pier in the tide and the water from the dead man's clothes seeping through the cracks and dripping into the ocean below, there was no sound. Pam bent lower and opened her eyes.... Three days of being battered by relentless seas had done their work. Pain's glance crept from the shoes UD the wet twisted serge trousers, over me iorn uiut.- shirt and pea jacket to the pasty bruised face with the blurred sightless eyes. Even in prolonged death there was a cruel uplifted sneer to the rigid mouth. She nodded quickly. "It's the same man." Then she crossed to the side of the pier and gave up t v « so recently enjoyed chocolate s_ .a. W HEN Pam emerged'from the wave of nausea that had swept over her she realized that a jacket had been put across her shoulders and that a worn cool hand was holding her forehead. The jacket was Brent's but the hand belonged to one of the women cannery workers. Her calm gray eyes met Pam's- sympathetically. "That was an ugly sight for ye to look upon, Miz Carter." Pam managed a feebJe smile. "1 d i d n ' t know I had such a queasy tummy, thank vou for helping me." "One of the ladies is bringing ye ?ome hot coffee . . - that will strrngthin yer stomach." Pam stared at her curiously. . "Didn't it bother you?--seeing that--that dead man?" that there'll oe the dead to doughnuts something connecting man with Clearview " Brent ran ms ringers through her nair. "Look Pam. let's not borrow trouble. We came up here for a change and to write a book, remernbT? Let's talk about something else." "Okay, we'll talk about the dance."' "What dance?" "The one we're going to tomorrow night." Brent groaned. "Now listen Pam, Cove Point social life doesn't interest me _one iota. I don't want any ot it." "Don't be sUiffy, Brent This is a harvest dance to raise money for a new church organ.

' Trucks, wagons and buggic! were parked beneath the still lush trees and laughter mingling with a strident fiddle emerged from the basrmcnt.
