Newton, McPhfsr- Bon, and Salina, is paved all the way from: the south to the north lines of the State except through a- part of Cloud and a ipart of Re- ptiblic counties. In or^er to close this gap the State Highway Commission "strangled", the work in other counties and -arranged to give Cloud and Republic counties sufficient jfunds to do the work. Republic county readily fell, in line with the proposals of the State Commission, agreeing to use all its available-funds to match State and iral aid for the completion of the road across that county. But Cloud county refused. One of the commissioners, who lives in the north part of the county, was willing. But the other two commissioners live'along the line of Highway 40. and they refused to accept the $109,000 offered them as State and Federal aid unless perifiitted to spend $50,000 of it on-Highway 40. The State Commission was willing to pay approximately 75 per cent of the cost of building 81^ and that is and always will be the main road of the county, leading as it does right through the middle of the county to Concordia, tlie county seat. -But the two county commissioners whose personal interesds were tied >up with Highway 40|refused to accept the offer, with th(j result that Cloud county will not get any • outside money this year and will not build any new road. The critics of iho present law have alwayy'insisted that iis thief', weakness Ill's In Ilic riictlluit any one of in."; hoards of,county commissioners could oxerrisc a veto power over any project the State j Highway Commission might suggest, and thus virtually nullify the sections jof the law' which 'aim to estahlisli' ii State system <if connected, roads.

The county commissioners did nut make this claim. The commissioners refused to allow: w'brk to proceed on this link of a cross-state highway simply because they were Interested personally :in another road. It would certainly seem as If it inigbt be possible to frame a law ; that would compel harmony between state and • county authorities with respect to work upon what everyJ body must recognize, as iinportant connecting roads.

She has not piade herself commonplace' by tagging aloiig Mith the boy wherever he went, as many another mother, no fonder, but more foolish than she might have done. A teacher she was when he became the world's idol, and a teacher she remains.

One of,the 41 prisoners given a Christmas parole by Governor Paulen was an Emporia man who had served two years of: a five year sentence for writing a check when he had no funds in the hank. This little item of news is put into the editorial coluinh for the purpose of calling the attention of a number of people who have in times issued ' "no fund" checks in alleged payment of bills and' have' seemed to regard it as a perfectly safe way of staving off creditors for a day or two. lo the fact that but for the leniency of their creditors they might also be applying to the Governor for a parole from the pcnifehtiary. Ev- .ery time a' man writes a check Itnowing he ^has no funds In the .liank with whhih to meet It. he commits a felony; and a felony under the Kansas law is a somewhat serious matter.

We attend <to husj [nes9 .too closely, take oar jobs iaa seriously, say Europeans. This may be so. Probably it is. But we do wish some of these foreign commentators could see us on Christmas. Would you, perchance, find the president of the town's biggest bank itoday? You might look up in junior's room, where the revered president doubtless will be found sprawling on all fours amusing himself hugely with junior's new electric train. AVouId yott speak Avith the stern ^ndgei who Is so portentous and awesome on ordinary days? He. peradventure, is bel)>ing oiie of his grandchildren assemble a moijel airpl.ane-^and, hy the same token, getting twice as much kick out of the proceedings as the grandson. Are'you loddng for the reverend pastor, whose snowy locks ordinarily shade/ snch a dignified face? He has tacked a sprig of. mistletoe in the parlor,- and will kiss the first girl Of woman who comes within two yards! of it. And tbej multi-millionaire manufacturer, who la so hustling and crisp by ordlnarj'? He Is in his dressing' gown and slippers; for last nl^t he stayed up past mid^ night leading a group of children on a hunt for Santa Ciaus. . In other words, these men and all the rest of us have, today, declared a moratorium on seriousness and dignity. "We have ceased to pretend that we are important grown-ups. filling positions of reslmnslbillty and trust, and have 'lapsed back into the state we enjoy most—that of carefree, boyish irresponsibility. And perhaps that is a pretty good thing for us.-once in a while. In fact. If we had our way, there would be more Christmases—one each imonth. at least. For the remarks quoted at the beginning of this article—tliat we take ourselves and our work too seriously—are fairly close to the truth. • ^Vhile we are working, let's COUT tinue to work with all our souls. But let's learn. If we rcail, to carry some of this Chrlstnias spirit over Into our leisure hours at other seasons. "When the dajy'a work is over.' It would he good for us if we could shelve our seriousness and our intentness, anc relax-into something approaching the mood of Christmas morning. It would be fine for. all of us If wa could wear the purposive earnestness, of working hours like a garment, to bo dropi^ed. :When working hours are oyer. Wfe need to get do\^•n on our knees and play with trains oftener. to romp with children- even.- irresponsibly and gaily, to kiss charming female callers, perhaps.
