The State Senate has passed a ' bill authorizing any city to "acquire, • construct, own. equip, operate, maln- . tain. Bind Improve sewage systems, sewago disi)osal : plants, garbage • works, markets, stadiums, public hospitals, dormitories, gymna.slums. auditoriums, swimming pools and puijllc offices, which shall bo sclf- ; liquidating and arc hereinafter rc- • ferrcd to as public improvomonts, subject to the lien herein mcntion- ; cd." The purpose of llie bill is to cn- ; aWe cities to comply with the conditions necessary to obtain a loan \ from the Reconstruction Finance • Corporation for the construction of ' self-liquidating projects such . as those above enumerated. To be specific and concrete, the enactment of this measure into a law would ; make it possible for lola to borrow money with which to erect and : equip a public hospital such as is so : greatly needed here. In order to do - this bonds would be issued, but they would be a lien upon the hos- IJltal only and not upon . all the property of the town, and they would be iiquidated, therefore, not by pubUc taxes but by the earnings of the hospital itself. It is to be hoped the lower House of-the Legislature willact favorably . upon the Senate'bill so that Kansas may get its share of the funds that are available for the construction . of self-liquidating public works. WHAT N. Y. IS DOING. ."The advertising columns of the New York papers • were crowded with display announcements brimming with encouragement for the present and with optimism as to the future." So ran an Associated Press dispatch in the newspapers yesterday. And the Register reprints it in the hope' It will convey a modest hint that what is good business policy for the metropolitan area will not do a bit of harm out here in the wide open spaces of kansas! How the lola Daily Reglstir would love to be "crowded with i display announcements brimmiiig with encouragement for the present and witli optimism for the future!" Here are a few additional sentences from the A. P. dispatch ir dicatlng the line New York business Is taking to promote confidence: . "If you haven't got a charge -account, hurry in and start one." was the tenor of rpost; of the department store advertisements. "Hotels offered all their facilities on a basis of trust. Stssoiiship lines advertised that checks were acceptabie and that scrip would be as soon as issued. Airplane conipanies and other travel firms followed suit. "With 'all this ; encouragement and reassurance that temporary shortage of cash Wasn't going to meian corresponding shortage of necessities or-even minor luxuries, the pebplc continued' about their business with untroubled calm." AU of which Is all to the good. The only thing we have to be afraid of, says the President, is Fear!' Let us cast out fear and go about our business "^'ith untroubled calm." THE UNltEd STATES DAILY. Announcement has been inade that the Uhited States DaUy, J published In Washlngtbh by Pavid Lawrence, has su^ehded publication. This brings to a close a most Interesting newspaper experiment. The United States Dajly wac.'pub- lishedl for the purpose of <^ving complete i accounts of goverhmiental affairs,' publishing In full documents and speecl;ies that could be found In ordinary newspapers ^ only In drastically summfiriz^ fojrm. The publication was of such character as to make no appeal to advertisers and it was obliged therefore to' depend wholly upori revenues from subscription. The subscription price was fixed at $15 a year. The United States pally was most ably edited and it Was carried on for ^everal, years, having been foundbd In ^926. But it couldnt make I the grade. It's annual deficit amounted to jmany thousand dollars. The editor had no fortune of his' own but hp was able to enlist the support of wealthy men and women and with the aid of the subsidy they supplied he was able io carry on. But the "angels" of the enterprise finally grew weary of the load. ..Perhaps the depression reached them At any rate'the siAsidies were withdrawn and the paper was obliged to suspend. The United States Dally demonstrated at a cost of more than a million dollars to various people that a newspaper cannot be supported by subscriptions alone, eveni when the .subscription price is several times that of the ordinary daily newspa- por. Its experience demonatratcd what every newspaper publisher knows, that ho newspaper can survive wltiiout the support of advertisers. COMPLIMENTING CURTIS. On the last day of the last Congress the Senators ;of the United Stales presented [ Vice-President Curtis with a massive sterling sliver serving tray, nearly;three feet the long way of the oval, and" with! the name of every one of the 96 Sena tors engraved on it. The Democratic leader. Senator Robinson, tnade; the presentation speech and said a lot of mighty nice things about : the Vice-President, closing with the following: "The times through which iwe are now passing are filled w{lth. causes of anxj^ty and distress. When you leave the senate topibr- row, at the expiration of your term of office is vice-president of the United States. you_ will carry .with you the confidence, the Te- spect, an$l the admiration of all the members of this body and we •ft'ill express in this token as well as in the w;ords which We empjloy our good wishes for your Ipng cpn- tinfied happiness and success." From Other Papers The Wichita Eagle'had a headline that iri effect said the Boettcher kidnaper's "flaunted" the faniily's ransopi offeri says the Arkansas City Traveler, and irefers the matter to the editor of the lola Register, recognized as 'an authority on "flaunt" and "flout." By the way, what is the lola editor's position on "flaunt" and "flout?"—Grass Roots Kelley. The lola editor's position on the words aforesaid is that when one means flaiunt he should say "flaunt"; and when he means flout he should say "flout." It is this thing of laying "flaunt" when you mean "flout." and vice versa, that gives the lola editor a pain between the head and shpulders; There is no denying the "courage" that breathed through every, sentence of the President's inaugural address. The question the country now waits to have answered is whetheri there vvill be concrete and specific 'plans apd recommendations to baickiup these brave words. Let Us hope I that the vigor of the battle "will measure up to the fierceness ol the declaration of war. "The Kansas House of Representatives voted to restore the death penalty for first degree murder and then defeated a kll to enable the State to carry put the death sen- tenee. Leaving the presumption that ttei (len «{h ponaUy is to be liifllcted by did ttgc. The valedictory address whichiMr. Curtis made March 4 in taking leave of tlie Senate over which he had presided for the past four years was in thoroughly good ta^tc. It was modest without being hypocrltldally self-depreca,tory. It cairled a sufficient touch of sentiment without being sentimental. It expressed gratitude and appreciation without loss of dignity or sacrifice of self-respect. Nothing In Mr. Curtis's long public career became him better than his leaving of it. Newspapers in other states have had a good deal to say about the way in which they are being bombarded by advertising agencies lyith a promise of ndilUons to be spent in beer advjartising when the 18th amendment is repealed. No such bombanlment has been direcJied toward this offi(|e nor so far as jpe have heard toward any other Kansas newspapers] Is the virtue of the Kansas press tkken for granted by these wet advertising 'agencies ; so that they are hot even to be tempted? In the United States today there are being produced just about the same quantities of shoes, clothing, furniture and houses as were produced in 1912 when our population was 30,000.000 less than it is ^ow. Does argfone seriously believe that 120,000,(KK» people are going to iget along f6r an indefinite perioid' of time upon the output that was no more than required for 90,000,000 people? Those who listened to jthe "inaugural address" of the Hon. John Nance Garner, following his induction into the office of Vice -President will be more fervent than over I in their prayers that the Hfo of Jthe President may be spared durinli jthe comlnp four ycflirs. jiJSTIfEGS.
