Ten years ago the expenditure of public funds for such purposes was commonly viewed with doubt, Today it is accepted us desirable and neces- 'sn'ry. The wisdoin and propriety of ( Busing- tnx' x money in those ways is no longer questioned. The subject of concern, rather, ia the inability of the county to make more liberal provision.' There has been a general awakening ,to the fact that individual welfare cannot be divorced from the jren- eral ^welfare. \Vhcn we spend public money to combat sucli diseases as ., typhoid fever and malaria, to help delinquent or neglected children, to irn- prove productive efficiency on our farms and to introduce bettor living standards, we are spending it for the economic- and social advancement of the entire cpunty. The benefits are not limited to those directly- reached by these activities but extend to every resident and every owner of property in the county. . V-, - Only Bluffing -, / , II must have" occurred lo a food ninny readers bcfoic this that a vast ^amount of blufling has been going on - in connection 'with German protests over the stopping of German merchant Ships by Spanish loyalist warships. Germany lias made divers threats to use force., Such.use of force would •mean war between Germany and tlio Madrid' government. But bp w under the shining sun could such a war bo carried on? German forces could not reach Spain by land without consent of the French army. They could not reach Spain by sea without the consent of the British navy. Such consent obviously will never be given. So, unless Hitler is ready to light both Britain and Fiance, he must be .running a big bhiff. And blurring is sound tactics only Miuai you are sure that nobody will call you. (AUK.)' COtlftffift NEWS Tanks Aro Coming The big job of the next war will be done by machines, and tli6 garage and machine shop rather than the hospital will bo needed to patch up most of the casualties. So says Maj. John K. Christmas, One of the army's authorities on mechanized warfare, in an article written recently for the Army Ordnance Association. In a large-scale war in the future, Major Christinas) predicts, a great power like America will need hundreds of thousands of tanks. These machines will do most of the "dirty work" formerly done by the luckless b.fantiy. Under mass-production, a light tank can be produced for about wlmt it jow costs lo train, equip, and maiv.tain one soldier; a dead tank leave? no dependents to be supported by tin 1 government, nor does a wounded tai k require years of hospitalixu- tion afvcr the war. No one need expect that this mechanization will rob war of its horrors. But if it doc.s transfer wastage from human bodies to machines, even in a slight degree, it will be at least a small advance in the right direction. Seusibh Step The vice may he a man of small influence in our government, but John N.~ Garner seems to have asserl- o.l himself on one point, at least. lie has abolished the ciisto'm of the vice president's dinner part}. Under this custom, the vies president each Januarv thiew a dinner party for the president. A little later, by way of return, the pr6siucnt threw one for the vice president. These affairs, needless to say, whore always extremely soup-aml-lish. They were landmarks in the Washington social season—although beyond that they served no paiticularly useful purpose. Now Mr. Garner has announced that the dinners arc off, and President fioosevcll seconds the motion. Mr. Garner's habit of retiring at 9 P. M. can go on as before; Mr. Hoosevfll is spared one moic demand on his' time and energy. All in all, it looks like a step in the direction of sanity.

There was no response to his knock, so, Bob opened the door and found tho room empty. Another person missing! Feeling terror, he returned to the living room and told Pearl John that the professor was not in his room. The others had all- gone to the dining room. For nn instant Poarj John's face paled. Then ho laid a hand on Bob's aim. "Not a word of this lo the others until we're sure he is not on tho place somewhere. Was Iheie any thins out ol place in his room?" He asked the last question because Dob's face showed that he slill had something on his mind. "NO;" Bob answered- "but since so much has happened,- I think t ought to tell you'what "I saw the niRht before Peayl Pierre's death."
