"In | face of fuels, common prudence demands a realistic am conservative management of the fiscal n train of the government.' The President promised to apply surplus government revenue to the reduction of the public debt The Republicans proposed to divide the surplus between tax reilucUoi mid debt reduction.

The other day f saw four interesting headlines. One read: "TWO FINED 52. r >0 JsIACH IN LIQUOR CASE." Another said: "DRUNKEN DRIVING IN THIS AREA IS SHOWING INCREASE" and the other t\vo were: "MAN IK FINED FOR DRUNKEN DRIVING AFTER COLLISION" and "PFEIFER MAN FINED $150 ON LIQUOR CHARGES." Then I noticed where these items were printed. The first one came from "dry" Faulker county; the second and third from "dry" Craighcad county, and the fourth from "dry" Tndei>cndence county. These counties voted for "prohibition" a long time ago, but the vote hasn't prohibited the bootleggers from operating. By voting for "prohibition" these counties cut themselves oft from legal control and the county and state lose the tax money. Nobody ever heard of u bootlegger paying taxes.
