Whose Responsibility? If Ihc testimony which 'WHS presented to the Osa-olii jfrnnit jui-y was along the lines of scvcnil silVultivils which wore road at' it meeting ol' tins Democratic county central cummiUuc last August (lie jury WHS, to state it mildly, amply justified in its finding (fiat there had been a certain amount of "carelessness" and "negligence" on the part of officials in charge of some of the election boxes in this county at last summer's Democratic primary. Whatever the testimony before thu jury may have been there is evidence that worse than "carelessness" and "negligence" marked the conduct of the primary at at least one election box. And if the election oll'iccrs were not parties to the wrong doing they were al least inexcusably remiss in pcrmilluig it. We have in mind, of course, the sworn .statements of a dozen or more persons that workers at the Dycss rehabilitation colony were carried in tnickloads (o thu vofiiig place at Wilson . ;u;d were permitted to vote in spite of the fact that a number of 'them protested that they were not properly qualified. Jt was even stated under oath, in affidavits read to the Democratic central committee, that many of these unqualified voters were handed ballots, already marked ••/ and folded, which they placed in the' bill- ' lot box without even seeing for whom they were voting. In spite of all tin's, however, we agree with the grand jury that the real responsibility for the situation rests upon the Democratic central committee. H is the committee's business to see to it that capable and conscientious election officials' are named for every voting box. II is the committee's business to permit no material violation of the laws and rules governing Democratic primaries to go unheeded. When the county committee refuses to certify the vole cast at boxes where these laws and rules arc •not observed it will put a prompt stop 1o such practices. It may be difficult to pin criminal responsibility for election irregularities upon individuals, but H is not difficult to detect (he existence of such irregularities and to stop them by the simple expedient of refusing to permit anyone to benefit bv tli em. (AUK.) COURIER NEWS DOT OUR WAT Nature Ouldone Tlis devices by which a mechanical age seeks (o improve itself often smacks of the miraculous—and, oc- wisioniiljy, Ji very odd sort of miracle to boot. Experts in 'the animal nutrition laboratory of Cornell University recently completed experiments in the raising of sheep on synthetic foods. They grew two shoe]) to maturity, and fed thorn never a single blade of grass. Instead, the sheep were, given n weird mixture of casein—the solid part of milk—cellulose from chemical mills, starch, vitamin concentrates, and salts containing essential minerals. The sheep liked it. They got fat on it. They became, indeed, vary healthy and robust. Sheep that fed. on the greenest and grass ever grown would not have looked better. And tlio whole business, .somehow, leaves one with a rather di/ny sense of admiration. That -herbivorous animals can thrive on a mixture of by-products from chemical factories is about as si Hi-Hint; a reversal of nature as one can easily 'Red' Idea, But Good!

The galoshes were .formally arraigned before a Moscow court.

The result was a sentence ordering Ihc quality of Ihc galoshes to bo improved at onuo.

General Lee, 8G, of Nashville, Term., has many distinctions. He has served under 12 commanders in his present capacity as adjutant general, is one of the two men ever received at the White House in Confederate uniform, and was a shipmate of King George V of England while the latter was serving in tlio British navy.

(UP)—Texas highway engineers have a high regard for the U. S. Army Engineers of Mexican Wnr days. They have just discovered that some' of the causeway work of Gen. Zacliary Taylor's forces is still in good state, after being undersea, for years. The causeway across Goca Chicn at the extreme southwest limit of the United States has been buried in sand and water for years. A recent Gulf hurricane changed the water line, and brought the old military causeway to view. of tho posts were cypress. The good condition of the Sypress posts after years caused little surprise but the engineers were astounded to find that the trunks of palm trees had also been used and-also were in good, preservation.
