TWO PRIME ISSUES f I^IIE coining session of the Legislature 1 promises to be one of unusual interest, and certainly the public is vitally concerned with the manner in which it will deal with the problems that present themselves fpr consideration. Primarily, of course, there is the question of state expenditures. Two decades ago the business of the stale was conducted for around $16,000,000. Today <we see that sum increased nearly 15 times, and apparently the end is not yet. No service that the stale is rendering justifies this Irc- mendous gain in cost, and if Ihc members of the Lcgislalurc reflect the sentiment of the people, they will see that the several departments gel back to earth again, will insist that Hie business of the stale be conducted as is business in private enterprise. Two years ago California had a surplus of •$31,000,000. The money had been accumulated through successive administrations, each year marking a gain, and the average man fell that California • was enviably financed for the future. But in those two years every dollar of Ihe surplus has been expended, and the state is facing a tremendous deficit, the anthorities not yet finding an acceptable way to balance the budget. How desperately they arc seeking to do that is evidenced by the plan to take over a part of the money raised through the gasoline tax and apply it to other purposes than road maintenance. It is hardly thinkable that sane legislators will agree to such a program, and at this .time it may be definitely predicted that some- other method must be found to create the needful revenue for state maintenance. But the creation of additional revenue ought not to be the main issue. The reduction of governmental costs, rather, should be the concern of Ihe legislators and of those ;who will have to do with the making of the budget for Ihc coming biennium. Aside from the mailer of clfecling economics, perhaps the most important : issue, and certainly the most important insofar as this section of the state is concerned, has to do with water conservation and distribution. Two years ago we were promised that this issue would have Ihe . speedy .attention of the authorities, that with : additional study,. a special session of the Legislature would be called to prepare the necessary amendment for submission to the people. The two years have come and gone and we are no closer to a determination of the question than we were when the Legislature met in 19H1. The present Legislature will have to consider both an amendment, covering in a broad way the question of conservation, and a specific act to enable California to proceed . with a progra'm for conserving and distributing the waste waters. If the measures have the sincere support of the administration, if lawmakers from other sections of California comprehend the. importance to the enlirc stale of this legislation, there is hope that the : session may lake the initial steps in behalf of a stale-wide water plan. The failure to do so will menace the fulurc of many agriculturists in Ihe great central basin, and, in fact, inenace the future of that entire area. We are promised no end of investigation! at this session of Ihe Legislature and having to do with governmental affairs, but the hope is lhat such investigations will not be permitted lo stand in Ihc way of that constructive work which ought lo have first place ut the coining session. There must be brough into being a more economical plan of gov ernmenl; our water problem should lint solution; it would be a positive injury lo the . state if either of these great issues were side tracked in an effort to fix the blame for reck less governmental expenditure or other ills however interesting the developments migh be in such connection. as has been announced by Senator Breed would "put many California schools out of businesf, increase local personal and property taxqs and compel further curtailment of the public school program." The official quoted ought lo go back a few j f cars and make, comparison as to the tremendous increase in llic cost-of education in this state. He might also very profitably check up on results obtained under a less expensive regime than that which now exists. We have reached that time in government when there must be a very material reduction in costs. In no, place have these costs mounted more rapidly than in the public schools. That there has been no gain to the public commensurate with the tremendous increase in maintenance is the belief of many thoughtful people. In any event, it is certain that the schools, along with other governmental activities, must make n solid contribution lo the program of curtailment. It is the sentiment of the people of this stale lhal nothing be done lo weaken California's educational system, but there is likewise a very definite conclusion that, that de- parlmenl of public service can be conducted at a.very material saving lo Ihe taxpayers, and that loo, without impairing the system in so far as youth is concerned. Officials in the state school department will do well to go along with this movement in behalf of economv. A GOdD RESOLUTION C NDON and other cities in Great Britain testify to one of the most enthusiastic observances of the coming of the New Year. There is reported to be everywhere recognition thai a heller day is dawning for the United Kingdom, and credit in a very large measure is given to the acceptance of the policy to "Buy British." There is no reason why we should not imitate our neighbors across the wuler and "Buy American." We produce practically everything lhal . the people of Ihe nation require. If we buy the output of our own factories und the-.produce of our own soil, we shall, in each instance, make a contribution to the well-being of the farmers and of labor; and once we place them upon a better basis, once they, in turn, become consumers, we start the wheels of industry and contribute something lo the resumption of business. "Buy American" is a good national slogan, a good individual slogan, and, by the way, an excellent resolution for the New Year. fc RANDOM NOTES By FREDERIC J.

NOW GO ON WITH THE 8TOBY It seems that not all of the committees und commissions appointed during the last Jour years have completely functioned as yet. One f them, the President's "research committee m social trends," the existence of which most of us had forgotten, has 'made a report alculated to "throw a scare" into the Ameri:an people. It finds that there "can be no assurance that violent revolution in America can be averted unless there can be a more mprcssive integration of social skills and 'using of social purposes than is revealed by •ecent trends." Q. Is Ijos AnKeles a manufacturing center?—C. P. A. The city of Los Angeles and environs now have some 6000 factories. Q. Did the term carpetbagger originate In the reconstruction after tho Civil War?—C. T. R. A. This term of derision was used long before the Civil War, and was applied in tho west to denote promoters of wildcat banks or stocks, whose earthly possessions were contained in tho carpetbag with which they usually arrived at the places they desired to exploit. , .• Q. What -was tho adjuration of the Washington-.police to Coxey's army in 1894?—F. G. A. The army of the unemployed was asked by the police, "please keep off tho ffrass." Q. Are many people born with feet so formed that they will give them trouble In later life?—W. T. C. A. Most people are born with good feet. Ill-fitting shoes and poor posture are troubles. Q. What foreign countries have systems of unemployment Insurance? CHAPTER XjCXVIII , v Tom shook Ills head. "Nothing much happened," ho said..;. "They stopped tho bridge game about 12, you know. I didn't linger afterward to talk to Pratt and De Vos. They may have some agreement for today with Pleur nnd Dolly but I didn't want to question them unnecessarily. I've taken the ground that this Is their hotel and they cnn do as they like away from here. Statlander's our main problem today. Fortunately he still feels we need another talk about tho set-up of the fall campaign. That man lives for business." Linda said ruefully, "Certainly I've discovered that he has no small talk." "And I'm not altogether . convinced abouV Shaughnessey. That early appearance of his Is still to be • explained." "And Mr. De Vos wanted me to go boat-riding alone with him," snld. Linda dreamily. "What?" Tom sat upright and his voice was charged with horror. "Good heavens, Linda. When?" "Yesterday afternoon — when we were talking on the lawn." "Tell me Just what happened." She frowned thoughtfully, feeling after the exact words. "He a,sked me," she said slowly, "whether T could run —or rather handle the Pinafore alone. And he said he would have enjoyed hat effect. When I told him I could ftke the wheel but not run tho engine, e suggested that probably you Idn't care to have anyone do It but ourself." "What then?" "Nothing especially. You see, Fleur's oat—the Comet—had Just gone past." "Just one thing, Blnks. Did ho ac- —I. C. A. The following countries have From this quotation it may be observed hat the 500 fact finders are very like' the Milage schoolmaster of Goldsmith, whose 'words of learned length and thunderous sound amazed the gazing rustics ranged around." L,et the average citizen read the quotation for himself and read it again and see what he makes of it. The President, himself, finds the report illuminating enough, as the reader may judge by his own comment: The significance of this report lies primarily Irst in the fact that it is a comparative effort on a very broad scale to project into the field of social thought the scientific mood and the scientific method as correctives to indiscrim- jnating emotional approach and to insecure factual basis in seeking for constructive remedies of great social problems," 11 was a Southern negro who said: "You is jest talkin* words; you ain't said nothin'." Coming back to the report of the committee: "The alternative to constructive social initiative may conceivably be a prolongation of a policy of drift and some readjustment as the time goes on. Morctdefinitc alternatives, however, are uVgcd by dictatorial systems in which the factors of forpe and violence may loom large." BETTER GO ALONG 0 FFICIALS in the educational department of the state have declared their unalterable opposition to any legislative movement designed to reduce tho cost of the schools, one of them declaring that a program such Disquieting? Well, naturally we are disquieted when 'a government commission talks of "dictatorial systems in which the j factors of force and violence may loom i large," but possibly the situation will seem less menacing when we have sane leadership at Washington, a leadership that thinks straight and has the courage to do, one that will act forthrightly, on its own initiative, with more dependence upon self and less upon highbrow committees.. some system of unemployment Insurance: Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Irish Free State, Italy, Luxemburg, Poland, Queensland, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Finland, . France, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Switzerland. Q. How early was the word, mortgage, used In connection with money borrowed on land?—J. W. W. A. It was used as early as 1B30 as evidenced by tho following: "Ho hath not solde his lando out ryght, but he hath mortgaged It for more than it is worthe." ' .. Q. In what part of Pennsylvania Is tho so-called mushroom kingdom?—R. S. T. A. It Is located In tho vicinity of Konnott Square and West Chester. Q. How did tho Palmer stadium at Princeton University got its name?— S. P. A. It is n memorial to the father of Edgar Palmer, Class of 1903, who donated It. Q. When was tho first law passed in thfs country that affected immigration?—13. M. W. A. Until 1819 no law was paused in Congress which affected the Immigrant. An act then adopted, though applying to all piiMsengora, was In reality a law regulating Immigration because then nearly all paaHongerH were Immigrants. .For several years a largo percentage of all pernonH starting for tho United States lun beon dying «n route; owing to lack o provisions and because of overcrowding on shipboard. The purpose of this law was to overcome these evils.

Wlio held tho first Now Yean celebration In the White-House?—M A. C. . A. The first, reception was h«ld li the White House by John Adams, al •though New Year levees had been hek by both Presidents Washington an Adams previously. The first recep tlon was held on the second floor o the White House, In the oval roon: The mansion was entered at the sout door. Q.

He Said the boat could be andled by one person. And then he sked If I were as skillful as FJeur, ho' could handle • hers alone.' That •as the connection, as I remem- er. it." Tom released his breath in a long Igh and laughed a little. "You. have a'nice dfarntttlq wax of fropplrig' an Important' jfaot casually nto tho conversation, I :mu'st- say.

Then the Footsteps again, clear and brisk, as If to pass over that momentary pause at (Linda knew as well /as If • she had been In, the hall above)—Cousin Amos' door.' Someone had stopped, cautiously..turned the knob, found- the door still locked—and-'now was' 1 coming downstairs, was almost upon them. Linda dared not speak to Tom or even flash him a quick-glance. "I'm getting positively light-headed over ail thls," : sho thought. "I feel as 1f I were taking a-mild but perpetual electric shock: It's .Marvin! >Oh, did Tom get that pause, I wonder? Well, he elected Marvin for his— "Hello, there! Sleep well? It's a nice day, Isn't H? Not quite so ho*!" "I've got to nee flbput breakfast," Linda said hastily when the conventional greetings were over. ."You two" go on out on the terrace until It's ready.'.' . « • • They were earlier than Linda had supposed. The girls were just back from mass and only ' starting their work. Returning to the central room, Linda was, In time 'to meet the next man down and, to prevent him from Interrupting the terrace conversation. "Oh, good morning, Mr. Statlander!" she cried brightly. "You're Just I* time to help 'me. If you will. I have to cut some flowers for the house, and this Is the best time, before the sun's too strong." Borne on the current of her determined enthusiasm, he stalked beside her toward the garage. "I'm the bearer of a message from my husband," she went on. Being able to think of no acceptable theme for before breakfast small talk she clutched almost In desperation at the task Tom has assigned himself. "You know, Mr. Statlander, that while we enjoy having you here, Yaleska Is really the one who arranged It and Tom feels it's not fair to her to.break up our little party before you and he have a chance to go over everything By DR.

"Not at all,"-answered her reluctant helper uncompromisingly.. "A garden Is altogether too wasteful of time and energy—and money." -Ho nodded i In the direction of a denim-clad figure working along the boarder toward the adjoining property. ."That man, for Instance. pay him to spend his entire time puttering around this place?" "Heavens'!" thought Linda, "the questions have begun again!" But she answered demurely, "Chat's WlUum— our community gardener. He works for me part of every day—whim he remembers to come. But If we could afforcl It, I'd certainly have a full-time man. I could keep him busy." '.'Busy!" Mr. Statlander suddenly slapped at the .back ofi his neck where a mosquito had lodged. "A full- grown man—busy—every day!" His annoyance with the mosquito added unusual severity to his tone. "How many servants did you say you need to keep up this place, Mrs. Averlll?" "I didn't saj% that I remember," answered Linda meekly. "But I have two maids all the time and a nurse jtor the baby—and. a woman who comes In to help when we need her— I send the laupdry out—and a part- time gardener—" "I see. And what—" The next question was unexpectedly interrupted. From" the windows above them appeared a tousled' head and Shaughnessey, evidently just aroused, blandly greeted his hostess. "Good mornin' to you, Mrs. Averlll. And would you be having a good opportunity for n. bright stable-boy, or likely a chauffeur, and what would be the wages of the same 7" Linda's uncontrollable peal of laughter was quickly checked. Looking toward the house, she saw her husband beckoning them back. "Be right there! Breakfast's ready, Mr. Statlander. I'll carry the basket back. Thanks ever so much for hold- Ing it for me. Did you get your hands dirty? Do you want to wash them down hero?" "No, thank you. . . • .". But Stat- lander clenched his fists at the suggestion, as If he would have liked very much 'to use them In a more aggressive fashion against a certain Impudent Irish face. -. \ (Continued Tomorrow) r y TEN YEARS AGO , t , , : '.V' (Th«,c,'»Hteml«n. lhl« <UU, J«j!3) j.
