The Atlantic lias been flown a unoil many limes in the last few ywir.s, and it looks as if familiarity liml bred cun- tumpt.

J For an air-minded fnmily to crui.se' about over the land is one thing. For it to dare the Atlantic is another. Ocean flying is 3 iiU profoundly risky. // Ours Was a Super Race It is possible that a race of supermen in intelligence' could he obtained, if people would persuade themselves to adopt a course of selective breeding. So, anyway, says a University of California professor, who has .succeeded in breeding n group of extra-smart rats in his laboratory. What rats can do,, he says, humans can do; if we. ^vill we can develop a race'thai Vis fur wiser than tlie one which peoples the earth today. Probably it won't be done, but it makes an interesting tiling to think about—especially when you consider the sweeping changes which the presence on earth of n higher level of general intelligence would make necessary. Consider, for instance, the change it would make necessary in politics. Men running for public office would actually have to talk about the really important issues of the day—and would have to talk as if they knew something about them, too.

FRENCH VII.l.AOKS HURNED On Sept. 17, 1918, Germans burned French villages along the Nfosetle as American and French forces advanced. Allied artillery retaliated by shelling thc fortress of Mclz. American forces in Lorraine advanced on a front of five miles in one of lhc first offensives in that sector in many months. Their proress was difficult because ot the rough country. Allied troops continued their victorious progress in the offensive against Bulgaria, taking many towns and llio'.isands of prisoners. The flank of lhc, First Bulgarian Army was lurnort find il was forced to begin a retreat Into Its own territory, In a curt note, the United Slates rejected the Austrian proposal for it peace conference.

Translated, it means "at a bargain—cheap." Actually, "au bon marche" indicates to the French what a true bargain does to Americans—dependable merchandise at fair prices. When so many shops everywhere are full of merchandise on which the "price appeal" is prominent, it is necessary that the wise shopper insist upon products of known value and proven merit. The clock that will not keep time is hardly a bargain at any price. Foodstuffs and drug-store supplies must contain pure ingredients and be prepared under hy- genic conditions, lest they become not only cheap but dangerous. Wearing apparel at a mark-down -is only a snare and a delusion if it lacks the quality that will result in wear. Wise shoppers, these days, are refusing substitutes, are weighing true worth -against price appeal. They are using the advertisements in this newspaper as a shopping guide. When a merchant advertises his wares consistently, you may be sure that he is telling the truth about them. He could not afford to do otherwise, even if he so desired. When a manufacturer of national scope appeals to you through these pages, you can believe and act upon his words. b "Au bon marche," Today advertising points the way to the only real bargains!
