In view of; the general understanding that President Rooisevelt looks with favor lipon the proposal for the government i to rehabilitate and develop the potential;electric resources of the Muscle Shoals dam. a report recently made by Lieutenant Colonel M. C. Tyler, of the Corps of Engineers, United States Army, will be of Interest., Col. Tyler has madfe a careful and .scientific analysis of the entire project in rc.spon .se (o. the request of the Mu.sclo' Shoals Commission, and ihi'sf iirc his conclusions; Tliat • iht? Kovei-nmont 'K power plants at Mii.scU' Shoals are not .suitably located to scr\(' a.s the main ffenef-otlng station of an e.'clensive ihdppendetit; iKnvcr Kystem and that the constv\iciion oJ an independent syBtem wot)ld involve hirye public expenditures. That the (HilinnsmltilnK pow,vv In Kuch 11 sy.sirtnwdulcl he hli;h, and that thi' irlmWlHy ol SCIV U T iit lonR dlsliuici'.s li (in "ihi' ({I 'lKirallni; syetpm would he IHMV. That lhr ;C ()n.slruction of the .';ys- •(em would, .simply idupllciile trans- ..mlMton facilities now in exialM^ce : which amply swve the region. .That the drllcll (roin conslrnction and operaiitm of uuch a'^ystem, which would have lo be paid by the 'general taxpnycr .s tlirougli the treasury, would far ouiwclgh aiiy possible savings to the limited local-public .served. • Such a report as th.'il. made by an army engineer competence must be cohccdod. else he would not have been ?elect<?d for so imiwrtant and respon.siblc a duty as that laid upon him by the Commission, ought permanently to dispose of the Norris plan for the government to develop a gigantic power manufacturing and di.slnbuting plant at Muscle Shoals. It ought not" to be forgotten that this whole Muscle Shoals projf cl was a part of • tlie inconceivably profligate gover.nmental expenditures of the war admini.stration. Southern SeAatoi-s and Representatives, In power for (he. first time in a quarter of a centuiy, were avid to grab government monej- for their section. And -so they devised the Muscle Shoals project under the i^retcxt that it was needed for the fixation of nitrogen as a war measure. They planned it on a scale which could only . have been justified upon the theory that the war was going to a hundred years, and they poured a hundred million dollars of the taxpayers' money into it before they could be headed off. It never supplied the army with a pound of nitrogen, and the progress of scipnce has now made the whole plan upon which it was built ns obsolete as the bell-mouth blundcrbus. The proim.sal now i.s to pour Into the project another liundred million dollar.s of the people's moneif and build up a great government electric plant to enter into competition with private Wji;lne!is. It is to be hoped that Col.: Tyler's report will put a stop lo silch noiisenso. .\ MECHANICAL PILOT. "Robot:;";An artificially manufactured peribn. mechanically efficient, but lacking sensibility." Dlctionaiy. Bert Caj-lson. an Oklahoma airplane pilot and engineer, has invented a robot;that seems actually to be able to pilot an airplane, 6f course wKhin certain limits set and prescribed by somebody with a real mind instead of only a mechanical one. Mr. Carlson has been working on the idea for nearly ten years and seems at last to hare brought it close to perfection. A repoiter who took a flight In a plaice piloted by the device declares it can handle a plane in choppy air better than the most expert pilot and that with the course and tbe altitude of the plane once fixed it can maintain it there with undevlatlng accuracy. The robot seems to consi«t of a finely adjusted combination o( gyros with hydraulic oU pressure. Two small gyros operate the Jets which open or close the hydraulic lines to the ship's controls. <^ne of these gyros keeps the plane on Its compass course while the other keeps the lateral and longitude lev^l. A sensitive diaphgram covers the pressure on the lines, keeping the designated altitude. The robot. Carlson explained. Is sensitive to half a degree and. operating upon hydraulic prlclple, reacts in accord to impulses received. If the ships wing drops quickly, the robot acus quickly; if the fall Is slow, the action of the machine In »low. •Like water running down an Irregular incline. It will quicken or .slow up according to conditions," Carl.son sjild. Exijlalnlng a previous statement, "It can fly better than 1 can," Post said: < "When the tip edge of a wlhg drops- about an inch it begins to pull it up and the more it tends to drop, the more it pulls the *iiig up. In the same way. it eases off when the wing is exactly level. When I steady the ship I don't know the wing-Is going down until It's well started down and then I have to pull it up quickly and with a slight jerk." Of course the robot will never be perfected to the point where it will take the-place of a pilot in leaving the grouhd or landing, but it would cerlainlyibe useful in relieving a pilot on a long solo flight. THE . MOVIES FIGHT BEER. A remarkable, and very interesting statement was givenJout recently by Carl Laemmle, president of Universal Pictures corporation, "A large part of the money which will go to saloons for beer, and beer taxation," he said, •will come out of the movie business," and he called upon the men engaged in that business "to fight the return of the saloon as we would a pestilence." Mr. Laemmle calls attention to the fact that the movie business never took sucli a spurt as it did when saloons were closed and "when prohibition was first enacted. "The millions of nickles that used to slide over the bar," he said, "and the millions of dimes which used to be spent in rushing the growler, began to jjour into movie theater.^. The man who earned a living by the .sweat of his brow then began to take his tnmlly to the movlra!ad of sonking up Clie brew u( the nation." Mr. Lnemmle leiillJies Unit the sa- \iion will not create one single new dollar of money. It will simply mean that the dollar which has been spent on till' movlt'.s and on scml-luxurle.s and even on necessities will be spent somewhere else. Mr. Laemmle, whose statement Is given out in the form of a letter to the managers of movie theaters, .strongly urges upon such managers they they use their screens in eveb' way they can to oppose the return of the .saloons as a plain matter of protecting their own business. "Tou haven't any more business than you need even now,",he. says in conclusion, "but you vill have less if the saloon comes back." In view of the extent to wl\ich the screen was used in many localities, particularly in the big cities, to create wet sentiment during these past few years, the statement of Mr. Laemmle may be looked upon as in the nature of a death bed repentance.

"SWEET ADELINE.'• The Register had a paragraph a few tiays ago' about a quartette of .voung men at Branson who got together on the post-office steps one night and sang "Sweet Adeline," for which offense against the public peace they were very properly arrested and fined $2.50 each. The paragraph reminded a Leavenworth reader of a story which he tells as follows: Judge Crutchfleld for many years police judge of Richmond, Virginia, is famous in the east for his quick administration of the law, his witty remarks, and his original sentences. Visitors in Richmond make it a point to attend I Judge Crutchfield's court. Dr. H. E. Henderson, now of Leavenworth but formerly of Baltimore went one morning when in Richmond to see and hear the judge, A negi'o was called and charged with being drunk and- disturbing the peace, '•Nigger what weio you doing?" asked the judge, "Nothing your Honor but slngln." "What were you slngln?" "Sweet Adeline." the negro answered singing the H'ords In tune. "Ten dollars fine."' said the judge catching the time and singing the sentence. "Call thojiext case." So whether he.knew it or not the Bvcn.'ion police judge had precedent for his judgment and sentence. FRECKlBANi HIS FRIENDS . / No Answer! BY BLOSaSR STHEBOVS ROOMDTHE SOOTH SHORE.
