He believes that European aggression in the great undeveloped areas of South America is not a remote possibility—not much more remote than it was in Ethiopia. And he is determined to build up a solid American front against it.

The paving project on Fifth West was a joint third-third-third payment plan entered into by city, county, and state road commission, at the time of its instigation more than six years ago. At that time the county paid the city's part of the cost, it is reported. No settlement has ever been made of the problem it was pointed out. Whether the amount is yet due the county was the moot question that was not entirely answered at the meeting it appeared. Further work on the problem was apparently considered advisable. • U. S.
