Immensity of Dust Storms If you luivo wondered just how much earth was moved in the recent western dust storm, yon might be interested in tlie estimate submitted by A. F. Turner, of Kansas Slate college. Mr. Turner says that if a 0(i-mile line of [i/j (on (nicks could bo put to work ImtiliiiK 10 loads apiece daily, ii would take them u year to haul back to weslcrn Kansas the dirt that was blown over to the eastern hair of Hit) state. Altofrethcr, ho says, there would be 46,500,000 truck-loads to lie moved. Putting the thing in that form helps us to realize the terrible dcslructivc- ness of the storm. You eon't need to use your imagination very hard to tin- ilorstand that a lot of (food farm land . must have bepn ruined to provide those 46,500,000 Irucldoads of dust. Decorum, Abotie Ail That peculiar British habit of cou- ducting even the wildest of anli- government demonstrations in an 01- dtM-ly. manner.was never better illuslrat- ed than in a recent display al Cla.s- t'ow.- Some 70,000 unemployed put on u great march to protest against the national unemployment, act. They carried red Hags and,banners, they shoiil- ed "Down with, the national govcrli- incut," "Dqpij'^villi 'Ramsay "Mn'c- • Donald,'—and ,'even "Down with the King!" which is about as far iirthe direction of.bloody riot and revoltition: as any British crowd can go. But there wasn't a sign of actual disorder. The 1,900 police called out : lo handle them hiul nothing whalcvor ' to do. The demonstrators' marched, waved banners, and shouted—and that was nil. In what olhei' country on earth could a wild, passionate demonstration of that kind have been staged in just that way? The English instinct for being orderly seems to control even those who want the government overthrown. Hou) to Keep Promises The voters of l.aue county, Oregon, have recalled a state representative because he refused to vole for a legislative memorial asking congress to (ARK.), COURIER NEWS adopt the Townsend old ago pension plan. The most interesting thing about this is not so much the fact that it revcalrgstrong sentiment for the Townsend plan, as it is that the representative who was recalled paid the pannl- ly for violating a campaign pledge. When lie wit.s .seeking election, lie promised to vole for the memorial; once he got in tlie legislature, he changed his mind. Viewed from that angle, (lie recall is a wholesome all'air. Too many p:il- ilicians arc ready to promise anything under the sim while (lie campaign is on. They will make promises that they do not dream of keeping, trusting that the voters will forget all about everything in a few months. Our politics would In; much healthier if every broken campaign promise were followed by recall proceedings.
