The general consensus i.s that Mr. Roosevelt lias done a first-rate job and that we arc all deeply indebted to'liiin. That is probably very true. But it. occurs to us that tbe man who deserves the bjggcst bouquet of all these days is iipbotly but John Cilinon himself, tbe 'ordinary man of these United States. ' Mr. Roosevelt gave us leadership, of course, and it was like the shadow of a mighty rock in a wenry land Hut a leader lias to have followers, and in a democracy the followers lia've to be wide-awake, level-headed people who know what the score is. Without them, the leader quickly linds himself beading a one-man parade to nowhere. And the way the plain people of tho country responded to leadership at a time when such response was needed is something for tl'e record books. All of which is just another way of saying that neither Mr. Koosevelt nor any other president can do it all. In the long run, the way wo solve the tremendous problems of the twentieth century will depend qi! the good sense and the good will of the average num. And the encouraging thing today is the way in which the average man has met the test of the hist four years. Let's go back to March 4, 1933. -Mr. Koosevelt took charge of a nation that was out on its feet. It had been gypped and misled and taken up dark alleys; many of its factories and all its banks were'closed, and its leading citizens were afraid to walk past cemeteries late at night. Here, if there ever was one, was a country ripe for chasing after false gods. And the false gods were on the scene,-too, begging to be chased—the Huey Longs, tbe Father Coughlins, the Doc Townsends, and the Gerald ](. Smiths, flanked by the death's head hussars of the Liberty League. But the country somehow kept its head. It listened to all these people, trailed along for n while, and then OUT OUR WAY let them go their way alone. And in the eiul the tremendous vote rolled up for Mr. Roosevelt last year was simply the country's vote of confidence in— ilsclf. And if we have recovered our confidence, dispelled the shadows, and climbed out of the valley of the depression, don't forget that it was pretty largely the doing of the ordinary American, He hits shown Unit lie is the sort of person who can breed good lenders, recognize them when they show up— andi follow them without losing his head, —JJruco Calton. High Flying • Streaking through rarilicd air at nn average speed of nearly 6I/. miles a itiiiuili} is an extremely hazardous, almost foolhardy, uiifiortaking; but the aniiwingxfent enabled young, wealthy Howard Hughes to break his own west- cast air record by nearly two hours. It was not only an achievement of which the United States can well bo proud; it is refreshing evidence that all young millionaires are not cut from the same pattern. So often news items about such woll-hcelcd youths have to do with the scion of wealth chasing chorines about his mansion, shouting insults at the Fascist! in Italy, or the like. It is like a breath of fresh air to read about one devoting himself to the advancement of aviation. In other words, Hughes' is the type of high flying of which people approve. Sterner Sex Before the first 'all-Woman jury to sit in federal court at Ne\yark, N. J., one Peter Ouarino, on trial for train robbery, acted as his own counsel and fought for acquittal. During his plea before the women jurors, he pulled out nil stops in his appeal for their sympathy, weeping copiously, and oven ringing in the death of his father a year before. The women brought in their verdict 32 minutes later; it was "Guilty" Now, if this had been a case in which a woman faced masculine jurors, she would simply have had to dab her moist eyes new and then and display a generous bit of silk-clad calf, and her acquittal would have been practically in the bag. Or so tradition lias it. Can it be that the female of the species is havdcr-hearted than the male ? The place to break up gangland is In the high chair, not the electric clialr. —O. Roy Hanson, former prosecuting attorney of Chicago.

Markings on the eggs of birds serve dillercnt purposes. On some, the presence of color stems to be of little use, but, in the case of most birds that nest on the ground in dangerous places, the mottled color blends with the surroundings and makes the eggs hard to see. On the other hand, birds that nest in dark holes usually lay white eggs, so • that the bird can see and avoid stepping on them. NEXT: When captured, what do octopuses do with their arms?

Tho land is low, without hill or headland lo break ils monotonous sweep, and the town has but one export: coal. Its waterfront is dreary with black, smudgy docks, and ils houses are grimy and despondent, looking sullenly out lo sea as if they had long since ceased lo expect from it anything but the worst. Rut as the sloop Irene came about the little islets that lay in an offshore cluster, six miles out from the mouth of the harbor, and swung in for the tall lighthouse, Paul thought he had never seen a fairer prospect. This was his own land, at last—it was home. These were his people; to go about their streets, sit in their inns, chat with them casually, would be to touch Ihe earlli again. He brought the sloop in alongside a dingy wharf, on which a faded sign announced that yachtsmen might purchase gasoline and . supplies. A dejected-looking man came out of a died, looked down, and nodded agreement to Paul's request for a berth alongside, lie took the mooring lines Paul Thing him and made the little vessel fast. The voyage was over. For half an hour or more Paul was busy furling sails and putting (he Irene in shipshape trim. Then, finishing willi the boat, he ducked below, picked up a hand mirror, and looked thoughtfully at his face. It would never do to take that face ashore here and expect it go unnoticed. Sooner or lolei someone v;oiild be certain to se it and give tongue. Paul, scrafche his car, absently, arid ''looked a the one most distinguishing lea line of his face—Ihe jet black jaunty mustache which lie to at had worn ever since lie came to manhood. Grinning ruefully, he got out his shaving things. That mustache would have lo be sacrificed. WHEN lie came on deck, half an " hour later, the mustache had vanished. A pair of amber-tinted horn-rimmed spectacles were over his eyes. These two changes did not absolutely transform his appearance, but they did destroy that easily recognizable quality he had worn before. • A customs launch chugged up. A dapper little officer came aboard lo look at Paul's papers and glahce about the boat. If he recognized (lie name, Paul Ferrone, he gave no sign. In five minutes he had gone. Paul was free to go ashore. He walked up the wharf and turned into the main street o£ the little coaling port. As he did so, old memories came streaming back in a Hood. Gailport was on the edge o£ the great Lazare coalfields. To this place, a little more than a year ago, Paul had come on a tour of inspection. He had come to a region ravaged by long years of depression—a region in which two out ol three adult males had foeen wilhout'work for so long that hope had all but died in them; n region whose gaunt coal tipples v;ere silent and lifeless, whose ports were c-mpty and whose cupboards were hare. And his coming had been like a breath of hope to this dreary land. The people had clustered about him, shy and respectful, ant! when they saw that he was made heartsick by their plight, saw that he was determined to have something done for them, saw that iheir king felt with and for them, a strange, tremulous light ,ftad come into their eyes, and they had looked at him with a dumb, almost worshiping appeal in their faces. * * * CO this, if any place, was where he was loved. Here he had had a loyalty and a solid, unswerving regard that went infinitely deeper than the easy flag- waving and hurrahing of the capital. The Lazare coal field, more than any other place in the kingdom, was where his memory would be kept alive. He went, at last, to a little inn on a corner, and made his way to the bar. Half a dozen men were lounging about there, nursing mugs ot beer. They looked lap incuriously as he came in, and then went on with their casual conversation. He ordered a mug of beer, drank froili it, and stood meditatively by the bar. "Times still bad here?" he said, at last. The man who stood next to him turned, looked at him the coolly, and then nodded. "Aye," he said. "Still bad " ' "But going to gel better] le barman. "Yes?" said Paul. ;J The barman nodded vigorol' and polished u glass with lo< fervor. Tho man who had spc first growled a dissent. "You're hopeful," he said to barman. "I'll believe it who see it." He turned to Paul ag "Just because the king's con here, some ot thesq people tl the sun's going to come out aga "The king? Is he comi< When?" "Tomorrow." The man set empty mug down with a I! l au] suggested that the next ro was on him; the little cr< brightened up, an d shulf 1 promptly to the bar. "King Joseph," mused Paul hes a good king?" They looked aUiim suspicion 1 !;' « A GOOD king? Best ever! A' man, he is. He's a king, -J-has a heart." A chorus of \-«t\ answered him. ,The wizened . man appointed himself spokesi for the company. "I'll tell you, mister," he s "This King Joseph isn't flashy, lie don't make fine speeches, he works at his job. And w part of ills job. A king has look out for his subjecls, don't Well, King Joseph—and God b him, I say—King Joseph c; j 1 down here and saw how thil' were with us. So he went bf'. to the capital and pulled his \vt,i': and now something is being d!-!' lor us." j The men drank their beer. IJ itatingly, Paul put the question? > had been longing to have I sworcd. t: "How about his predecesa The king who reigned beffi him?" T. The men looked blank. Oncf them said, "Oh—you mean K| Paul?" ! "Yes." i "Oh, he was all right, I gue-] said one. j "He meant to do the right luj I always said," said another. ': just wasn't up to it." "He never came down here see us, did he?" asked Ihe hi 1 pessimist accusingly. "Sure he did," the company c reefed him. "He was down her year ago last March. You ough remember—you helped us sli lhat welcoming sign over Ba street, by the bridge." The pessimist looked drc; into his beer. "So he did," he said at 1,,. "Yeah, you're'right. I was thilj ing that was-His father .- . . J : " ter, we liked King Paul all ri He was just a lightweight."

Mechanical devices have been developed whereby the blood runs out of the donor's vein into a receptacle; then, by tinning a stopcock, it is permitted to run out, of this receptacle into the vein of the person receiving 'the blood. Practically all these methods still are used in occasional cases, bill today the simpler methods are used most widely. Special Building Units Designed for Tropics LEIPZIG (UP)—If the ingenuity displayed in making cold countries comfortable was directed to making the tropics livable mid productive, the problem of over- '.ciwding the earth would be solved, some engineers believed. To illustrate progress along these' .incs, a special Tropical Engineering F«ir is being organized here. It will include large scale displays and demonstratioas of nil terms of machinery, tools, apparatus and appliances together with chemical and pharmaceutical products, suitable for tropic climates. There .will he tropical houses, building units and materials, refrigerating and cooling devices, as well as soil tilling machines. The fair Is expected to be attended by representatives of tropical countries. The display, occupying several acres in and out of doors, will be n feature of the Leipzig Fair to be held from Feb. 23 to March 8. Canadian, 96, Hobo Since Boyhood Days MOUNTAIN CSKOVE, Ont.
