DROUGHT AXD DROUTH We learn from Washington that the President is taking steps to TtHert farmers who are victims cf the drought," while the federal farm bu reau and tha department cf agricul ture are making plans to assist farmers whose crops have been almost ruined ty the "drouth." The farm board member insist cn "drouth," but the White House statement are expected to continue ;'th : ust - cf "drought" - .The Standard' dictionary lists bcth drought and drouth. They mean tie asm thing. The Standard list also draut. drauth and drout. The eld Anglo - Saxon word for absolute dryness was drcgite, Webster's dictionary prefers drought to drouth and gives drcght a cna cf the old forms. The Century dictionary, which gives both words, says that drouth ts equivalent to "dry - th" i and Is ety - mologicaHy the more correct spelling. Adding, "th". to "warm," to make "warmth" Is. cited "a aimSar usage. Both forms drought and drouth have been in use since the middle English period, says the Century, "but drought has been more common." It Is cot likely that the farmers. - looking over acres of corn, that the sua has fired, cr pastures turned brown ty .excessive heat and lack of rain.' win be much concerned about whether they hare suffered frora a droujit cr ( a drouth. They cay ares wlih Pres. tdeni Hoover, that they nerer experienced a worse droujit, and wm be ta - terested is the department cf sjrl - culture's effort to do something about the results of tie drouth. It is results they are after and whether they come under one designation or another, the country wa fc more lalerested la what can be done than la the way to to zpe3 a word. , . :.

LTXCmSQ PICTURES . Photcgraphs cf the two Kegroes, hanged from a tree In the Courthouse yard at Idarion, were available to all the newspapers of Indiana . with in a few" hour after the mob. had done Its work. To the credit cf many newspapers it should be chronicled tiat they, did not use them although many ethers printed them on the first page. : Soma years ago the legislature passed a law that said: i - ;:':vF It shall be tmlawful f or any person to sen or ctfer.for sale, or to print or publish, cr to bring Into this state for the purpose of selling, giving away or otherwise disposing of. or to circulate ta any way, any paper, book or periodical the chief feature or characteristic of - which Is the record cf the commission of crime or the display by cut or Ulustratloa cf crtutes cotnaltted cr ci til acts cr pictures of criminals, desperadoes, or of men and women In lewd and unbecoming positions cr improper dress.

It sought to discourage crime literature although such, books have , become generally - popular now - and citizens may join "crime clubs" so they may be assured at least one crime or mystery novel each month. This section quoted has rarely , If ever been enforced, but it remain the law, and ty reason of its letter and spirit might be invoked to prevent the printing of - such pictures, as grew out cf the Marlon mob's action ' It should not be necessary to search for a law to prevent something that ,com ai vw . aii' ay - v w w men decency and good taste forbids.

" ;, :y r :;: IDOLATRY ..; V - '.'.., In the eld days idolatry was perhsps the worst and most deadly sin into which a ' tna or r.'tfrra yVt f, It consisted, as every ens fcaows, ta the worship cf any other than the true God. . The dirficulty. was la de - who was the true God - Jehovah, for instance or Baal. The worshiper of either held that the worshipers cf the other were idolaters. Primarily, of course, the word ."Idolatry" means the worship ' cf images or Idols but Invariably these Images were the representatives of some deity, except in the case of the Jews, Xa whsa images and their worship were forbidden. V iX - : - ' - . As it was to the days of tha apos tle, so it is now "there be god many, and lord many." : There hare been men very devout to the worship of self,' a pitiful sort cf 'god'' ;' People hare - made gods cf success, wealth. power, high place, and cf the nation cf which they happen to be citizens. Perhaps "this world's golden store" ha more worshiper than any other cf the godlings. Certainly vast sacrifices are mads to it sacrifice of hooor, good name, respect end confidence cf one's neighbors, charac ter, fine Ideal and kindly and gen erous feelings. The jsincere worshipers of : any god take ca the nature and characteristics cf the god they worshrp.; So tt is here. - ' ., - Mea seek effice to order that they may make money cut of It, with no thought except tha service of self. or, aa they say, of their own pocket - books. - Hit HA cf success has lured many a man to his ruin, as has the Idol of power and position. Here self enters la. for the power arid position are coveted for self. The world has been devastated by men of this arry, for the snob has been defined as one who meanly admires cr wor - tilpsmeaa things. Thus it does seeni as tiouga there are many Idolaters In the world, and they appear to be Quite content with their gods. The great' human problem Is to create In them "a desire for aomethicg better and nobler. ; It is a social as much as a religious problem. For there can be no fine and cultured society composed cf cr dominiated by men and women who give - no thought . to "things elevating. - Kor can a coun try be great, or its politics cla and pure males its people and ponftdsns "covet earnesay the best gifts." At tie root cf most cf oar trouble win be found this worship of false gods. SMOKELESS FLASHLIGHT i Perhaps a Kobe! prize, a Carnegie medal cr , ether suitable award should be cade to the General Electric engineers who have developed a flashlight for use ty pliotcgraphers. The new light, says a Cleveland dlspatchi eper - ites with 'rjfTloient 'candle power to enable everybody at a banquet to get into tie picture, and causes no smote, no noise and no odor. Because the new Jam? confines the Cash within the bulb, the fire hazard is eliminated and It wH cow be possible to take a Cash light photograph ta places where tie dan - er formerly "was too great for' such pictures. Almost everybody has attended at least 'one banquet. reunion or other gathering where a flashlight picture was taken. Usually winter is the season for flashlights and after the photographer arrived and set op his machinery everybody was asked to remain quiet for a moment. - There was a loud boom followed" by brnows of acrid smoke.

American and French ATbeaL To tha Editor oi Tb Krwa: ' A few days ago wheat ta Indiana was selling at 15c a . bushed. It Is higher now, due to the excessive drought. At the time wheat was 15 cents a bushel in Indiana tt was $1.71 a bushel in France. As Senator Watson said some time ago, the wage scale ta America Is a little more than three times as high as it is la France, so you caa readily figure out that on day's labor In Franc win buy a certain amount cf wheat, and one day's labor to America win buy Just about seven time a much wheat, conse quently a bushel cf wheat win buy a certain amount cf labor in America, and about seven times aa much ta France, " and ' something . like seven times as much of the manufactured products of labor, as can be bought by the bushel of wheat belonging to the American farmer. Now I feel quite certain that our esteemable secretary of agriculture Is entirely too Intelligent a man to believe that that condition has been brought about by the free and uninterrupted workings of natural economic laws. - 1 ' am . quite sure that condition has been brought about partly, by the passing of legislation in this country, which has worked a hardship cn American agriculture, and partly by laws la France, which have worked materially to the benefit cf the French farmer, until the two working together have forced the present condition. If natural law had been permitted to work in this case the French farmer would be getting probably one 1 and one - half tinea a much for his wheat instead of , seven times . ' as much, : because France does ' not produce , enough wheat for her own needs, and would import' wheat from America. - ' V. ';""'. ' DISSATISFIED. .

They are most timely .and I am sure are greatly appreciated by those who pay the taxes. There is a widespread demand for lower taxes, and one cf the best ways to bring this about is through publicity similar to the kind appearing ia The News.: The people want their taxes kept to the lowest possible, limit, consistent with good and honest government.

Every - 'cna knows the cruel km - Ing cf a young man and .the assault on a young girl did not demand the mobbing and hanging cf those who committed the - crime. but - the ma jority cf the 9,033 cr 6.CC0 people in the mob felt, that the law. would not deal properly with the criminals: that It would be near to an impossibility to get a Jury that : would Inflict the death .. penalty upon " criminals - ; to this county or to any other county and that there would be plenty of at torneys. who would ba wining to put forth - their greatest f effort to save them from thcelectrlc - chair.

ON WEARING, GLASSES Now that Ie put on glasses, X have the most pedantic look. My face was already crowded, and I had no room for an extra : feature, i Therefore. it was necessary to hook this addition over the others,' and the change that Is wrought In my countenance Is pathetic I can hardly believe that the meek owl - eyed face I see in the mirror is really my own, and I stare at it fre quently in search of identification marks. The hair Is mine, all ruffled and red; the nose belongs, with Its leaning toward cplift; a grin reveals teeth with unmistakable aman gold landmarks. The change, cf course, lies in the region of Ttsloa. Slightly magnified behind their little glass shields, my eyes betray their growing weariness.

It was serious misconduct on the part cf my - right eye. It formed tie embarrassing habit of winking without my permission. Its procllvitle for shutting Itself at exactly the wrong moment got me Into so cany Jams that X sought aid from one mora ckHied to the .control of delinquent eyes than myselL. First the oculist tasted my powers of vision, and found nothing wrong. . In fact, X see ao far and so. much that it Is bard cn me, and that' one thing that made my eye lose its discretion. Reading to bed until midnight for years has likewise proved to be a severe imposition on a good pair of eyes. Small wonder that one of them decid ed on ructions. : In order to discover Just cause for complaint, my examiner used a delicate instrument with which he could see the back wall of my eye. A, tiny electrio light revealed to him that - which X can never see. And when he had finished, he became the counsel for defense for my" over strained visual equipment. : So elo quent was he in behalf cf my eyes that X almost burst out ' crying, and promised to wear glasses for ever and ever, Having listed the disadvantages cf the bespectacled countenance, honesty compels me to remark the. compensa tions. My right eye, which hitherto has never let my left eye know what it was doing, has settled down, to a conventional course,. cf conduct - A certain gritty feeling, which kept me winking and blinking, has now disappeared. The midnight bock is easier to decipher and the hangover head' ache more infrequent ;: : - One by - product which I did not ex pect Is the effect cf spectacles on the children. For the first time to my life X have assumed a parental expression, and my cffsp"ring'. obey'" me much better. .When X tell Bobbie to do tils and David to do that, this and that are accomplished with less cf a struggle. However, X have no hope that this is a permanent .

It is one more thing to carry around, to keep to or der, and to lose. And last, but not iMxt x resent the addition of a most pedantic look. ) ". ' ' ' 1 Q S C, TJ. S.

Donnelly, tlrg engineer. Chairman Don - neny rirooosal not only envisions MsnriattJTi as the gateway to the na tion, but, richer to concept than pre vious plans, seek to symbolize the United SUtes as a . great rctorfusion cf races nations, peoples, whose civil' Izatlon has been and is based on com merce. His plan proposes a an ap propriate national" monument a greai vaulted nan, largest to the world, with an esplanade on the ' Battery water's ' edge and buttressed by two ten - story office buildings. A nation wide contest among architects cf an race win be held, a popular subscrip - ttcn to raise I23.COO.C0O set into motion. Ideal way of raising the money. declared Chairman Donnelly last week, would be to collect ' 23 cents from every United States citizen. "Then each person .would feel he owned as ranch to this national monument as tha next one.
