Athletes are noticeably young and slight this Spring, for the obvious reason that the war, has taken the Wg boys, but Field Day is no less important.

Anybody, citizen or alien, is at llb- erty' to pick his favorite activity, flnd the class in which lie belongs mid havc-at-it. according to liis own ability. He can win. History has .proved that champions are hard to pick in'advance. Some athletes, arc good at only otic -sport; others are versatile. Sometimes a man of many talents gets two or three ribbons; again a specialist c-ycells. But they nil try for it. The "net result-of the competition is a better set of men better teams, better classes, lietler schools here and'elsewhere—a better nation. Broad-scale progress results from effort, not from prizes! 7 Open to Any In busing it is much the same story. Nation-wide effort to achieve success accomplishes great things for the whole people. The awards of Free Enterprise are worth having lint they are not the inain thiiijf. Wealth, prominence, recognition, influence; these are ribbons. l»-»Thev ar e stimulanis that fire com- 'Y^ctition, but a few winners don't mafce-fi nation. It is the thoughtful wort'df many that makes America great. , Every liberty-loving citizen has a duty lo keep competition open. Free Enterprise is threatened in America. If it is overthrown by those who want every race to end In n >drnw, Ihe ease and security they seek will not come. But idleness will come and paraljze a nation that has set the world's pace for 168 years. The TV A lias been such n big job of construction thnt. David E. Lillen- llial, chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority, had to do n big job to get out his book. "TVA— Democracy on the March" (Hnrpers: $2.80). You can't begin to realize the size 01 [he task of damming up the Tennessee river, fed by the heaviest rainfall in eastern America, until yon see the figures on what was necessary to provide electrified power for the fanning and Industrial areas In the valley. Store than 175,000 acres of land had to bo cleared; more than 1200 miles of highway constructed as well as almost 140 miles of railroad. Huge electric shovels cxca* vated 30,000,000 cubic yards of rock and earth to prepare foundations for the series of dams, ninl l )3 million cubic yards of concrete was poured to build the dams themselves. The latter figure represents a bulk 12 times as great as. the seven great pyramids of Egypt. ' The autho) 1 has boundless faith in the future of the valley mid its various projects. He envisions a higher living standard for all its people, and declares that nothing in the way of petty politics or other obstacles can ever halt Its fu. tui-c development. The undertaking had many lilts in court Ijcforc it was ever started, and many more after It began. Ramifications of this legal red tape make interesting 'reading as related by this author who has set down a good historical account of an era. . * * » DOUGH IN NUTS!Ii;i,I, You'll be interested in "Money- Oo-Round" by John J. Ploherty (Llppincotl: S3) even if you aren't the kind of person who delights In l j-are old cdins. • Money has played an Important rolo since the beginning of history when roots, shells, and furs served as currency. Thirty pieces ot silver were Judas' undoing; pieces-of- eighl lured the pirates of the Spanish Main into murder and marauding'; and today the way in which we spend our dollars will determine (lie difference between stabilized living and skyrocketing Inflation. Our ally China was the first nation to establish :i systeiii of paper money In the ninth century. Tlie motto "In God We Trust," which appears on our coins today, was originated by Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase. Bowed by (lie crushing financial problems brought on by the Civil War, and despondent over its debilitating effect on the coxnitry'ii resources, he wrote the director of tlje mint, stating tiiat no nation can be stron» except in the strength of God, and instructed the now-famous words to be placed on our coins. Interspersed with other historical anecdotes, photographs and sketches, FJoherty, author of "Inside the F, B. I.," creates an interesting book. * • * SOUTH AMERICAN' MURDER If murders built around Scotland Yard, the moors of Scotland, New York's skyscrapers, or Hollywood's boudoirs have your appetite sated, then you'lj renew your zest for mystery yarns in reading "The Moon Was Red," by Dana Sage (Simon & WARNING ORMK In,.the.
