High Tribute In Small Type A brief paragraph in the newapai>ers Mcently remarked that "the Graf Zeppelin started oil its ninth flight to South America today, commanded by Dr. Hugo Eckenqr -und carrying niuu passengers and 150 kilograms of mail." The paragraph was dated from Friedrichshafen, Germany, and that simple statement of fact was all there was to it. And in the very brevity of this dispatch there lies a ^Venter tribute to the progress of dirigible construction and navigation than in all the eight- column headlines that the business has ever had. For it is proof that a transoceanic flight by a great dirigible is no longer news. The 'fact is there to )>e recovered, much as the departure of a steamship is recorded. But that is all. It is no longer something to rave .over. Those who hoi>c to. see commercial air service over the oceans on a large scale could ask for no better augury. An Ajjronl to Dignity! The other day in an English court the sitting magistrate happened to be a pompous, red-faced military man. He was'use4.,to being ob.eyed, and lie wanted evc'ry.wxly. to kno*- it; and he emptied the vials of his wrath upon a young woman who had been called to court as a witness. Ho addressed her as follows; "You ought to be ashamed of yourself! It is an insult to this court and •a most disreputable proceeding! I would have you understand that you must appear here properly dressed. The court will disallow your expenses." . No, she didn't appear in court in a one-pie<:e bathing suit, or with bare legs and feet, or in a new pair of lounging wjnnias. Her offense consisted solely in the fact that she had dared to face the magistrate without a hat!

OUTOUR WAY SIDE GLANCES By George Clark WH£AY,_^TOBF.Ml 1, ,1932 "Thunder Beat's" Bones Found in South Dakota CEDAR PASS, INTERIOR, S. D. (UP)— One of the largest fossils cvor taken from thr Dad Lands Is being removed by a parly headed! by Dr. Ira Edwards. Milwaukee, Wis., who has been excavating anJ exploring near hot.; lor two months. Dr. Edwards has been working for some time on the bones of HIP brontothorlum, known fis the "thunder beast." H.-> made the •liscovcry some time ago, and due lo the way the bones were buried, he lias decided to excavate the entire skeleton. The brontotherium, according to Dr. Edwards, is nnnttil because of the noise It made while walking. It was a large beast. The skull measures 30 inches across the eyelids and 42 Inches from the tip | of the nose. Dr. Edwards said it belonged to an animal 10 feet lsh and 20 feet long. The actual work of excavating the fossil is a gigantic tzsk. As scon as [he bones are exposed they have (o be covered with a coating of shellac, wrapped in rice paper and burlap, and plastered. This Is to prevent their decom|)ositlon from exposure to the air.

CUi')—Ameri- can industry could take a long step toward recovery by extending credit to Soviet Hussia. in the opinion of Adam W. Miles, Detroit tool engineer, recently returned from a year's work in Rus- tiu. Miles, who sp£ns most of his time visiting Soviet plants, said Russia is buying now from Germany and Italy because those countries extend credit up to 3S months. "American manufacturers," he said, "limit credit to one year. Therefore, Russia is buying only products in Anrerica which It cannot buy elsewhere." The engineer believes recognition of the Soviet Republic by the United States government would go a long way toward promoting trade between the two countries.

II is difficult, to conceive in tills ountry, even in a time of univcr- al economic stress, that any con- Iderable number of children do ot get sufficient nourishment, but dually-there are children slarv- ng with plenty of focd, and there re many cases of children who et insufficient food. Malnutrition in children is this o one of- these two causes, either nstitnclent. food or unsuitable ocd.

It has what is called n low vitality potential. It is just simply not enough alive. It doss not, kc?p up with the other children in school, and It docs not play as actively as clo normal children. In addition, there is the typ? of, child who seems lo bnv; supsr-' vitality and who thereby ovcrioes everything. Such a child slays up 'ale, never stops playing until ex- hauslcd. never stops studying until it falls asleep nt the desk, and keeps up this program tiay after nay and nighl after night until the point of breakdown.

Of course, children with such diseases as asthma, hay fcver, heart dtwase, or any of the other disturbances lhat been mentioned should' have complete and ckre- ful diagnoses and the best med'lcal care. Good medical care given to such children early in life means a vast saving to the community in the care of defective adulls at a later period. Deaf Mute Cobbler Eliminates Shoe Squeaks INDIANAPOLIS. Ind. (UP)—A deaf mute cobbler has gained a reputation for eliminating squeaks from sheas here. Cnrl D.
