EASTERN REPRESENTATIVES Bryant, Griffith & Urunsoii, Inc. New York, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta WASHINGTON (D. 0.) BUREAU .Frederic ,T. llaskln, Director, Washington, D. C. THIS PAPER 18 MADE IN THE U. S. A. A GOOD AMENDMENT HE counties of the state, or at least the JL residents thereof, will find themselves in approval of Senator Wngy's proposed Con- slitxitional amendment which will return to Ihe counties the power that wus onee theirs of fixing the salaries of public officials. Over a half century ago the new Constitution guvc such authority to the slate, and in Ihe years since then legislatures assembling at Sacramento have exercised it. It is generally the rule that legislative action is predicated upon • the advice of those directly interested in county government in the several counties, and so the business of determining an important factor in such governmenl has been kept within a narrow circle during all Ihe years. And there never was a good reason why the county itself should not determine the salaries of ber public officials. If that were (lie rule now, the sentiment of the people of any given county would be readily reflected. It is more difficult when it is necessary to go to Sacramento lo effect changes in compensation. Senator Wagy's must, of their very nature, be classed us uncertain and unreliable in any budgetary system designed to provide funds for gov- ernmcnttU expense. While the business of the country flourished and the national income, was uround $85,000,000,000 annually, federal taxation of incomes provided even more revenue than was 'anticipated by the treasury. But a decrease of more than 84 millions in tax collections during the month of December sharply reminds us that as a nation we'are no longer in the enjoyment of income received in the flush periods. Recent reports indicate that it has been reduced at least 50 per cent by world-wide economic and industrial depression. In such circumstances it cannot be emphasized too clearly or too frequently that the federal government must drastically reduce expenditures to correspond with greatly reduced incomes, and adopt the policies of economy which have been forced upon millions of individuals, us well as business and industrial organizations in every part of the land.

What Is the function of the would enable the supervisors to establish the salaries erf all county officials, their own ex- i;epted. Likewise they would determine the number of deputies, assistants and other employes. And what body knows better than the governing board of a county these details of governmental needs? The author of the measure well points out that while boards of supervisors are presumed to be responsible to the people, they cannot be held accountable for pay rolls which are established by state legislative decree. Anyway, the best government is the government that is closest to the people, and Sacramento is a long way from the several county seats of the state. _ LD timers who can recall the winter of '83 and '84 arc predicting that this will he the most propitious season since that one of '19 years ago. In the latter part of 1883 and in the early days of January, 1884, there was practically no precipitation in the San Joaquin Valley. Then, during the last week of January, the winds blew and the rains fell and for more than a month there was a daily downpour, the weather at the same time being unusually mild. The result was that the higher mountains were piled with snow, the valley was thoroughly drenched, and the unbroken plains were seas of wild flowers and luxurious feed. The similarity between the two seasons is marked, and the prospect for this year is brighter than for many seasons past, not only because the valley is being soaked, but for the additional reason thai moisture is being reservoircd in Ihe higher altitudes for service later in the year. And incidentally, the outlook for wild flowers is such as lo give assurance that Kern County's annual celebration, centered at Arvin, will be the most colorful since that movement was inaugurated. budget committee tlon?—M.

What musical Instrument reaches the highest note7—D. M. A. The violin. It reaches a much higher note than the piccolo. The piccolo reaches tho highest note of. any wind instrument. Q. What position did Baron von Stuuben hold In the Continental army?—M. N. A. Baron von Steuben arrived n,t Portsmouth, N. It., December 1, 1777. He offered his services to Congress and began drilling tho Inexperienced soldiers at Valley Forge. In May, 1778, he was appointed inspector general or drill master. He prepared regulations for the order and discipline of tho troops. Q. How far is it from Westminster Abbey to the Bank of England in London?—O. E. N. A. It Is about three miles. Q. Who wr.s the first manufacturer of Jewelry In the United States?—D. F. A. Epaphras Hlnsdale of Newark, N. J., is believed to be the first regular manufacturer of American jewelry. This was about 1790. CHAPTER XI It was June. Sheila was still plaiy- !ng split weeks with Roscoe's aot which had not been booked for a solid engagement after all. But split weeks hero and thero were bettor than nothing, Sheila solemnly agreed. Dick Stanley approved of tho arrangement because It kept her where ho could see her frequently. He would call for her and take her to a late breakfast—often at the Casino in tho park among the early lunchers. Then, If Sheila did not have to play a matinee, they would drive through Westchester of out on bong Island where they would swim and spend leisurely hours on tho beach. Then, for days, perhaps, Dick would seem to forget her. Ho might make a flying trip home or to his family's summer cottage, a palatial affair of which he spoke in an offhand manner as the "shack." Sometimes Sheila knew he had engagements with girls in Trevor Lane's Long Island set. Dick made no excuses, asked no questions about how Sheila spent the time during his absences. He would just Feem lo drop her after a long and ardent rush in which her heart would leap In tumult at his voice over the telephone or skip a beat when, running down tho stairs to greet him in Ma Lowell's lower hall, she would see his browned face and broad smile. But there was another side of tho situation. Sheila had to add to her wardrobe considerably to appear well dressed for all these engagements with Dl9k. As Myrt said, It "ran Into money." Of course Sheila couldn't compete with thoso rich girls. Dick would have told her that anything she wore was "lovely," but Snella knew, Just the same, that sooner or later he would begin to compare her unconsciously with the carefully groomed girls whom ho met In his own sot. The comparison could not help but be to Sheila's disadvantage. So she brought dresses—picked up hero and thero in basements, some touch betraying their cheapness removed by Sheila's own skillful fingers, some bit of handwork added possibly. She bought hats and was nsk. "He will, just tho same. 'Why only last night—" It, seemed that thero had been a party at Trevor's last night. A. stag'affair. Again Mandrake had spoken of "that clever little dancer," But ho did not call, and finally Shdlla gave him up entirely. • • • July came. .Dick was away much of the time liow, running In for rare evenings, calling her on long distance from Massachusetts where his people wore summering. Dropping around unceremoniously in tho mornings, frequently finding her already out and breakfasting at the Cpffeo Shop. Long evenings driving in tho cool breeze, Dick skillfully weaving In and out of traffic. It was all vpry pleasant but it did not keep Sholla from realizing, that her situation was none too secure. Of course alio had n job but that job was temporary. Sheila was making enough to p»y her living expenses but she' had been able to save almost nothing. And any day now Daisy would bo back in the act and sho would bo through. Daisy had been strong enough to dance" for a week or so but Roscoe had explained that he wanted her to have a good rest at Atlantic City where her aunt hud a boarding house. Sheila talked It over with Phil Short. "Try to get a specialty number In one of the shows opening In September," was Phil's rather Impractical body did. Ha was a real friend us well as an experienced trouper. Anyone Roscoe might find to replace him would bo sure to seem nn amateur. With Phil gone, Dick awajf, and Myrtle In tho country the Hummer rolled on. Roscoe still kept Sheila. In the act. He didn't want Daisy to work, he said, In such hot weather. Other members of tho company raised carefully shaped eyebrows at each other when Roscoe reiterated what tho heat would do to Daisy. Frank Mason, who played tho cornet, put that wink Into words. "With Shnyne packing 'em In Moody'd bo a fool to take Daisy back. Unfortunately these words reached Daisy's ears. By late August Sheila was "out" and Daisy "In" again, smiling, a trifle unsteady and extremely lacking In confidence. "I never saw a change like that that didn't blow tho other ono some good," Insisted Ma Lowell, a bit mixed In her metaphors. Sheila once more began the round of the booking offices. As It turned out Ma Lowell's words were prophetic. (Continued Tomorrow) VIEWPOINT OF THE READERS TEN YEARS AGO (Th» CatlfottiUn, tills dato, 10M> ,, .

RANDOM NOTES T A PROMISED CONTRIBUTION HE -wisdom of rejecting piecemeal legislation at this session of Congress becomes more and more evident as the program for the special session that is to be is disclosed. President-elect Roosevelt has indicated major objectives which he will press upon Congress in April next when the lawmakers again assemble. The first has to do with farm relief built around the domestic allotment plan, along with legislation v to relieve 'debt-burdened farmera threatened with mortgage fore,closures. The second favors prohibition repeal with rnodification legislation. The third objective has to do with budget balancing, including some new measure of taxation, and governmental economies, along a thorough reorganization of the exec- The disclosure that Kermit Roosevelt, son of the late T. R., is to be one of Franklin D.'s companions on a yachting trip planned for ext month, is interesting, and serves to em- liasize the humorous inquiry of the inimit- ble "Will Rogers as to "what has become of 11 the Roosevelts who were claiming that i'runklin D. was only a seventh cousin." ^ It appears that the division in the Roose- •clt clan dates back to the time of the Civil War. For generations all the Roosevelts md been Democrats, and the father of the 'resident-elect, James Roosevelt, though de- jlaring for the Union, was strong in his Jef- ersonian faith. But the Theodore Roosevelt of that day, a kinsman of James, cast his lot with the newly created Republican party, md his son Theodore, the late President, 'ollowed in the same faith. Q. Who were the Adullamltcs?— H. R. A. Adullamlte was a term applied to those seceding Liberals who voted with the Conservative party In Eng- I loud, when Earl Russell and Mr. Glail- [ stone sought to extend the elective [ franchise In 186G. They were likened I to the political outlaws who took refuge with David in the Cave of Adullam. utive departments. is the President-elect's determination to bring about banking reform am tariff legislation. Obviously^, no one of these objectives could have been reached by the "Lame Duck" Congress, even though a well define* program had been submitted to it by the chief executive. In the absence of such pro grtmi. the folly of even considering th< needed reforms in the dying Congress i plain. Q. AVhat Is the most abundant element on the earth's surface?—T. W. N. A. Oxygon. In addition to its occurrence In the air, forms, In combination, 8/9 by weight of water and nearly u by weight of the rocks composing the earth's ctust. Q. How long has the present program of federal aid for highways been under way?—S. L. A. It was Initiated in 1916. Q. What state has been under six flags?—C. M. A. Texas served under six flags as follows: Fleur-de-lis, Franco; Lions and Castles, Spain; Eagle and Snake, Mexicb; Lpne Star, Republic of Texas; Stars and Bars, Confederacy; Star- Spangled Banner. United States. Q. Why did colonial cradles have hoods?—Q. R. A. The hoods were a. protection from drafts. Colonial hcuses were not so warm as tho modern houses. fortunate that almost any hat looked well on her. She could wear a basement hat at just the right angle and make it look—well, almost Fifth Avenue. Shoes and hose remained serious problems. Cheap ones just would not do. It was discouraging business, trying to appear in a new outfit every once in a while and at the same time to save money. Thin morning, attired In n blue linen frock v/lth finely embroidered collar and cuffs of white, a small white hat pulled down over her satin hair, Dick thought Sheila had never looked su lovely.. "He looked up from his coffee, smiling indolently. "You certainly made a hit w(th Mandrake all right," he said. . Sheila's eyes widened. "Mandrake?" sho repeated, her voice filled with unconcealed amazement. "Mandrake. Sure You know you saw him at Trev's party." "Of Course I saw Mr. Mandrake. But did he see me?" Dick's eyes twinkled. "He certainly did. Called Trevor on the telephone the very next morning." "I didn't think ho even looked my way," Sheila said, pouring cream into her cup. "He didn't. That's a trick of hts. When he entirely ignores a girl It monns she has made an impression. They say Mona Deane cried for an hour after a party where Mandrake devoted himself to her. She said advice. That would be fine, of course. Anyone could have told her the same. But how was she to get such a chance? So Shitla made the rounds of tho agents' offices. A night club job presented itself with harder work and no more money than Roscoo was paying, her. The club manager hinted that sho would be expected to be nice lo patrons—out-of-town buyers, business men-and salesmen in New York for a good time. "Being nice" officially meant dancing with these men during the waits in the show and eating with them. It saved dinner money but It was hard on sl'oes. And frequently It meant ac- rcmpanylng them on further jaunts to out-of-town roadhouses with distress- Ing nnd dismaying developments. Sheila declined the offer and remained with Roscoe. She saw more and more of Phil, paying her own checks when they ate together or rodo on bus tops through Riverside Drive, for Phil was diligently saving his money. Then came the week when Phil, flushing with embarrassment, asked Sheila to. shop for him In tho Infants' department of a certain store of which he said Mildred had read. • • • Sheila shopped about, getting the best values for the money—tiny socks, adorable little gowns and sternly practical night wear. Phil's expression as they packed the things together in Mn Lowell's kitchen was so softened that Sheila was touched. Phil was going home for the erreat event in August, leaving the show. 'Oh, I'll get a job nearer home. In Just how far the economic situation can be relieved by governmental aid is problem aticid, hul there is not lacking eminen authority lo support the belief that legislation along the lines indicated will make a niiilerial contribution toward rehabilitation. So there were wide political differences jetween the two families and social differ- :nces as well. And they were accentuated in 1920 when "Young" Theodore Roosevelt declared that his remote cousin, Franklin D., then a candidate for the Vice-Presidency on the Democratic ticket, was a "maverick." Which did not help to establish the entente cordiale; the gap widened during the recent Presidential campaign, when all of the Theodore Roosevelt family declared in favor of the re-election of President Hoover, and in a manner that attracted a good deal of attention to them, even though their activities apparently failed to bring any substantial support to Mr. Hoover. Q. What rule governs the uso of the title, Esquire?—H. B. A. "The Secretary's Handbook" says: "The title, Esquire, Is used with tho following government officials: Chief clerks and chiefs of bureaus of the executive department, commissioners cf the District of Columbia, mayors of cities, American diplomatic officers below tho grade of minister, American consular officers, clients of tho Supremo Court of tho United States." , Detroit, maybe," was his confident explanation. Later he announced that he had already signed 'up. He was a skillful saxophonist and they were In demand. "I am going to buy a car," he told Sheila, dropping around one afternoon. "A fellow over In ClIffKlcle"—waving n hand In the alleged direction of the Palisades — "Is going to sell me ono cheap." Sheila went with him to view tho purchase. It was an old car used until June by a facetious schoolboy who had painted .It In whitewash with gay quips. There was no windshield, a fact which Sheila pointed out, but Phil explained that, he could eliminate that disadvantage by wearing colored spectacles from the 10-cent store. He ripped the rear seat off to make room for his trunk nnd his saxophone in its shrouded black case. "No one will steal it, will they?" Sheila asked anxiously. For Phil's saxophone was a fine one and expensive. KDITOlfS NOTE: The California!! will .print letters from leaders.

COST OF GOVERNMENT Editor The California!!: I would like to present my view concerning some of tho costs of government, national, state, county, city, schools or other branches. as Arbor day. If wo would have business get better we should have universal employment at an equitable wage between Individuals in all walks of life. Tho only objection I have to tho theory that to raise the Incomes of a few people in order that the benefits might trickle down to the general public Is that It falls to accomplish the desired object. It falls to observe that tho income of a community distributed so that every ono has a part Is worth more to the community than tho same income received by a few. It is Htlll more short-sighted In cost of government because'It takes from those less able to provide a reasonable standard of living to. provide more luxuries to the favored few. Is thero any sound reason why thoso In tha employ of government should bo exempt from bearing any share in the effects of the depression? Kven If this should be conceded, could we find any sound reason why they should profit by the depression at the expense of others less fortunate? In the last unaylysis a .salary Is measured best by the amount of commodities and services It will buy and this argument was mado use of freely In advancing reasons for raising them to the present levels. If these reasons were valid ones to bo used when salaries were adjusted upward, why arc they not equally so In lowering them? But we are told that the reducing of salaries is not tho proper place to begin In reducing the high cost of government. That economies could bo had along other lines. I wonder how many of the taxpayers' dollars do not go to enlarging some one's Income. Thoso in official position have professed to be working to secure economy In government for years but tho •results nave been ever increasing costs. Have the results justified the Increases In salaries and wages of tho past decade or do they justify the demand of the public for a change? During the past d«cade we have reduced the Income of a large part of our population not only below a fair standard of living, but to a condition approaching dangerously near bankruptcy.

WHAT KIND OF MIUK BEST? T7IOR r „,,, D DECREASING REVENUES ISCLOSING thul government receipts from all forms of taxation for the month of December totaled $210,995,057, the Internal Revenue Bureau points out that there -was a decrease of approximately $84,500,000 for Ihe month as compared with the same period in 19!}1. The major part of that loss, we are told, resulted from shrinkage of income-tax collections. And in vie\\ of such figures it is timely to repeat what has often been said in these columns, that taxes levied ugainst incomes derived fron industry and business in the United Slates But now Kermit is going llshing with the President-elect, the late President's sister, Mrs. Robinson, promptly sent her good wishes when Franklin D. was elected, and Mrs. LongAVorth, who devoted a good deal of spuce in a woman's magazine to urging that the nation's interest .would be best served by l.lie election of Mr. Hoover, is said lo he exhibiting a note around Washington in response to a letter of congratulation from her, beginning "My dear Alice," and signed "Affectionately, Frank." Q. What was tho Whisky Rebellion?—R. C. A. The Whisky Rebellion was an uprising in western Pennsylvania In 1T.M against Ihe federal government, occasioned by Ilio attempted pnforcc- inent of the excluo law on domestic spirits. Q. Is a. homo-miido mull box permissible on a runil free delivery route?—W. C. A. The post office department says thut It is necessary to have a mall box approved by the department for the receiving of mall. It Is not permissible to use a home-made mail box. Blood is thicker than water—particularly when there is a President-elect. Anyway, the situation is pleasanter than it was, and we have the right to assume there will be no more emphasizing the fact thai Franklin is only a fifth cousin or a seventh cousin or whatever the relationship is. Q. Where IB Lord Plumer burled? —W. H. A. The body of the great commander lies in "The Warriors' Chapel," Westminster Abbey. Immediately below a tablet memorializing the million men of the empire killed In the World War. Q. How widespread Is the Boy Scout organization?—S. S. A. Tho latest count shows that thero was Scouting In 44 nations and some- 7" lands on January 1, 1933, when the Boy Scouts of Afghanistan entered the World Scout group. the average well person or child any kind of milk Is wholesome provided it is either sterilized, pasteurized or comes In the raw form from an unquestionably sanitary source. Evaporated milk is the whole milk which has some of the water taken out of It. This milk is being used to tho amount of millions of cans and Is a stand-by In Isolated places where fresh milk Is scarce. It has an advantage over fresh milk In keeping until It IH needed but a disadvantage In that most people have to cultivate! a taste for Its flavor, which they generally enjoy after becoming used to II.

In order to preserve milk in as pure a state as possible, the housewife should take good care of it and put I away In a cool place, such as an Icoc refrigerator or an electric refrigerator It should not bo opened and allowet to stand In a warm kitchen for several hours as this encourages germs and also destroys the delicate flavor. Some of the wholesome usts for milk are: As a lunch meal, as Infan food, as food for underfed children us cheese, as Ice cream, as a sou milk diet, as a diet that Is soothing for the alimentary tract as In certali stomach aliments such as ulcer, have found that the special milk die Is also helpful in such disorders a diabetes and neuralgia. Milk may b used with egg and made Into a health fill eustard which should then b taken us the main protein part of meal.

The amount of the consumers' dollar they receive for their service and products has been growing less and less' until It Is faur approaching tho vanishing point and In some cases has been known to have passed that. It would he useless to entertain any hope for the return of general prosperity while that condition lasts. It would be abhorrent to our sense of moral justice to wish that condition to continue.
