A BEAL STEP,FORWARD. The best news that has come out 5 olTopeka during this legislative ses- ;Slon Is to the effect that the bill 1 proposed to establish a legislative .council for Kansas,will certainly be ; passed, it already has the approval • of the Senate and has been recommended for passage by the committee ; of the whole in the House. ' The bill creates a legislative coun- - ell of fifteen members of the present houae. of representatives and ten ^members of the present senate. During tbe interim between the regular ^Besslons of the leglslalure tliis coun- ?cil of twenty-five members will studir every sort of legislative and state iProblem. It will be able to conduct 'any sort of investigation that may be necessaiy and may order inquiries ;lnto any departnient or bureau of the State In order to get tha facts. The council may study the political platforms of tbe various parties and ";then dig into the facts relating to each proposal and be prepared, when the legislature meets after the elec- . tion, to lay all the facts upon any : given question of sta,te-widc interest before the two branches. . The .council is to tie a fact finding commission for the legislatuae. It is >;a job somewhat similar to the master ;or referee named by the courts to >take !^dei;fce,in a particular case 'and report their findings as to the 'facts hA the court. ; The council would draft bills along the lines the facts had developed and 'have.t^ese ready for presentation to . ?the legislature at the opening of the ;session.j During debate on the bill It was pointed out that several im- ^portantl •bills of state interest had : not befen reported to the present legislature until after the fifty days laUowedj for. sessions of the legisla- Jture liwi expired. Some of those bills did not jcome in until this week, while the pay stopped ten days ago. L It was urged ithat If the bills of TOore tlian local interest had been ^tudi^ by the council and bills prepared tiat when the legislature met the meinbcrs could proceed to liavo !the bili^ printed along with the fact:; which iiromptod the. measures. Tlien ihc Qvcinbcrs could start tight in (Studying .Ahc proposals and within u lew weeks would have di.sijoscd of all of them- Thte [measure was recommended il)y.the legislatm'e committee of the ptate Chamber of Commerce and its enactment will give Kansas an instrument for well considered legis- ; Jatlve aption that is possessed by no r other stiate. ' . A DESIAND FOB BEEB? Some months ago a man in Philadelphia decided: to go into tbeialoon bii.^,iness| A ;|^ur^ Ot b^ing undis- tmbed b^ the police he opened up a well equipped bjjd time saloon. It was gaudy .with mirrors, cut glass, brass rail and' all the adornments and appurtenances of the old pre- Vofsteadi saloon and it was weU stocked with liquors. In four months thfi' owner went broke; , That little incident gives point to the admonitions of the brewery organs and the liquor journals generally that the men who wish" to engage inp>the retail liquor business when proliibition is repealed cannot begin too early to advertise their wai-es and to plan campaigns for teaching men to drink. Talk as one may about there being mori drinking and more drinkers now. than in the pre;-Volstead days, everybody knows it is not so. It doubtless is hot too'much to say that millions of men who were accustomed sixteen years ago to make their daily call, or calls, at some saloon are either dead now or out of the habit. And .the new generation that has grown up since; prohibition went into effect has not formed the saloon habit and will not form it right away. The liquor journals are right. The liquor-d|-inking, saloon-frequenting habit win have to be cultivated all over agiin, and it is going to be a harder job than it was in the old days. The chances are that a multitude of men who are now counting on opening up saloons as soon as prohibition is repealed and thus finding a quick and easy way-to wealth will be profoundly disappointed. The PhiladellJhia experiment is' significant. P. S. But prohibition is not gouig to 'be repealed.

The belief held in some qiiarters that home-makUig does not interest the modem girl seems to be pretty clearly refuted by a check-up of home economics coui'ses In 80,644 l)ublic schools, throughout the coun- ti'y. The study was made by the Metropolitan Life Insurance company in cooperation with educators and industries to determine the present status of home economics in tii(! iJubllc elementary and high schools. Among 1.404,985 girls In the high schools reporting, 543,235 or 38.6 per cent—were enrolled in home economics courses in the school year 1931-'32. In Kansas, among 27,226 girls en- !-olled in the high schools reporting, 11,C47 were enrolled, or 40.6 per cent —placing the state in 18th place in respect to the proportion of high school gii-ls taking home economics work during the school year of 1931'32. Throughout the country, home economics courses were reported as being offered in 90 per cent of all city high schools, and in 54 per cent of all county high schools. KANSAS BETTER THAN MOST. Pre? dent Farrell, of the State Ag- ricultiu^l College, has published some interesting and encouraging figures. He says that while one farmer in twelve for the country as a whole was forced to bdrrow seed money from the government, in Kansas only one farmer in eighty-three took advantage of the seed loan. In Montana it was one fanner in two; in' Oklahoma one in twenty- two; Nebraska one In nineteen and Missouri one in thirty. While farms sold lor taxes in the United Slates last year totaled 7.4 out of every thousand farms, the sales In Kansas were only 3.4 farms out of u thou- .simd. For Oklahoma the figure wn.s 9.8 fnrm.s; North Dakota 15.0; Montana 29 and Mississippi 23.8, The number of farms in tlie country sold under foreclosure last year was 18.7 out of a thousand, in Kansas the figure was 20 per 1,000 farms; Nebraska 21: Missouri 23; North Dakota 34 and Montana 31. So it looks as if Kansas, is sm-viv- ing the depression better than some of its sister commonwealths, and there i.s some consolation and some encouragement in that. EVEldN^ toot It 1&3S. trouble came }ast week, Governor Landon called around him a group, of the best bankers In Kansas, officials of the State Bankers' association. They agreed that Kansas banks could stay open and were pre-pared to atay open. Fpr t^o days and nights the federal government, secretary of the treasmy, cb&lrman of the R. F. C, pounded Kansits ti-ying to get Governor Landon to declare a state bank holiday so that a national bank holiday would jjot. have to be declared by the president. It was obvious that if the banks of one state stayed open It. would take a presidential proclamation to close them. Landon did not yield. It became obvjous that tbe governors of the cjpntral ledertil reserve bank in 'WashingtonyW.ould not permit the Kansas City reserve bank to send l^to Kansas banks the cash the Kansans had on deposit in the Kansas City Federal Reserve bank. The Kansas City regional reserve bank was safe and sound, far above its quota in gold. The regional reserve banks of the East, notably that of New York City, were far below their reserve in gold. One was down to 26 per cent where it shoiild have 40 per cent. Our Missouri valley regional bank was loaded to the guards with gold. But apparently, that gold was .held in reserve for the general gold stor;e of the natiojn and itansas being imable to di;^w upon her own reserve had to cl«^. It took the president of the U^^ted States to close Kansas up. But don't forget this,'Kansas by herself would be open today doing business at the old istahd. Kansas did not lose her shirt in Wall street. Kansas did not mortgage her lands at fancy prices. Kansas bankers did not load up their custpmei^s with phoney stocks and worttiless bonds. Kttnsas bankers did not use their banks to enrich themselves. Kansas played an honest American game, and had,chips enough to keep the game open.. But the losers, the pikers of the East—of New York City to be exact—who played a crooked game, sneaktog cards under t)ie table with their gold reserves sinking, with public confi- 'dcjicc wrecking thfe pillars of society, sguawkcd, kicked the table and stopped their game.; That's what happened and yet those cheap, tin-horn plug hat sports of wall street sometimes like to Jibe and sneer at the backward states,—at Kansas, for Instance. Kansas stood the storm of the last foiu' years. Kansas will continue to feed the nation even at a loss. Kansas came through this crisis flying. Kansas—there she stands! Take off your hat to her!

BY BLOS^R This banking situation is not without its humorous phases—for those of us who do not.have to pay bills. For example, practically every day for the past week the banks have been receiving from the Governor or from the Bank Commissioner long telegrams telling them what tJbiey may or may not do. These telegrams have been received all the way. from an hour to twelve hours after the banks have learned from the newspapers what they will be penpitted to do or not to do. And the telegrams come collect. From Other Papers -> KANSAS—TIIEKE SHE STANDS.
