Mr. Scott immediately set ab'Jiil equipping' himself to discharge his new duties ciVectively. He informed himself so thoroughly concerning not only the particular problems of Drainage District 17, but of Hie. difficulties besetting drainage districts throughout the country, that lie gained national recognition as an authority on the entire drainage problem and was eleclcil pre-idcnt of the National Drainage association at thi: crucial time whi'ii national lotjisbilion for the relief of drainage district taxpayers was pending, lie was able to give invaluable ho-Sp to our own congressman, W.

Bui, he continues, "if we allow ourselves to be lulled lo sleep by radio addresses of the president i'.boul the new deal and appeals for co-operation by the national adinini.-li'iitor we may wake up some morning in a new world." All of this miiy be as true as K»S- pcl. But someone ought, to remind the professor that a great many cili- /eus of liiis country are not reftlly rrii;hlcncd abnut the |iro>-pect of waking up in a new world. The old world, with its recurriiif! pcrimlK of mail- killing depre.-sion, doesn't look as fresh and rosy as it used to. If we find, some bright day, that we have been left behind, it isn't likely that any great torrent of tears will be shed. - vJ: " !
