Which one of the most disheartening minor events that can happen to a motorist is to have a common, ordinary, garden variety tire lose its inflation while the car is n motion on a public highway. ing exposed when there were no :hildren to protect. Tuesday afternoon we stopped at a store on 12th N.E. The red lights were flashing, very one was stopping for them, and it was 12 minutes before anyone from the school showed up to protected. And if a -- e -flock of darkness these fires covered. or more or less, usually more, precipitation is engaged in occurring at the time of the tire_defla- ion, the situation intensifies to a considerable extent and may even ead to a certain amount of pro- 'anily and exasperation. At that, tire trouble is not a modern invention that grew up with he advent of rubber tired self propelled vehicles. Back in the days j£ the hoss and buggy and f a r m vagons, come a long, dry, hot spell and the wagon tires developed a propensity to become loose and to acquire an overwhelming desire to become disattached from the wheel. And when such an occurrence occurred, it was just too bad. There was no tire jack in the trunk and no trunk in the wagon. Which during dry spells farmers often backed their wagons into the family pond so the wheels could soak up and swell up -and when on :he road they usually carried along a bucket or pail and would stop at wayside wells and pour water on the wheels to keep them soaked up a bit. -- · -It's getting later than we think.

Mr. Eye's s u g g e st i o n, as expressed in his "One Man's Opinion" in Monday's issue of this most jcxcellcnt newspaper, regarding how lo obtain promotion to a bigger and better job sounded pretty good. But we feel such tactics do not al ways succeed in obtaining the results desired. There is an old say ing on the railroads, and we hold there is m u c h - t r u t h in it, that "It ain't what you know, it's who you know that counts."

Some of our eminent statesmen declare everything is normal and unemployment will fade from the picture in a few months. Others declare we are enjoying a depression that will become more depressed with the passing of time. To which we would say one way to find out is there a depression is to ask'a man who has been out oi work for a few months. He knows DO YOU TAKE PICTURES?
