This neither country is willing to pledge. Meanwhile Germany is pressing for a conscript army with one year's military service, "specimen" armament of all types of weapons and treaty revision. In the highly nervous state of Europe almost anything might precipitate trouble. The most recent clanger zone is in Austria, where Chancellor Dollftiss is beginning to have trouble with his patchwork cabinet of conflicting and jealous parties. Dollfuss has been standing against nazi progress in Austria, which is much feared by France because the Austrian nazis are all for union with Germany--directly forbidden by the treaty and sure to make trouble if it should become likely because of the alarm of Gzecho-Slovakia, Poland and Rumania, all of which now include parts of former Austrian territory. European statesmen are working hard for some way to settle the tension, but the direct conflict of aims seems well-nigh irreconcilable. -Britain is trying to act as peacemaker, but is anxiously avoiding any commitments. HOW'S THE WEATHER? "VERO Weather Forecast," reads a newspaper headline--and a thousand things are done. Boilers are fired in heating and lighting plants; fire hydrants, exposed mains, and general plumbing are protected; automobiles are given protection of antifreeze solutions. Coal dealers hurry their deliveries; groceries and markets increase their reserves of seasonable foods; clothing stores show heavy goods in their windows. A great world institution is the weather; a great American institution is the weather bureau. It isn't the forecasting of what the temperature will be tomorrow, nor the direction of the wind, that is the weather bureau's biggest single job, although that one thing probably touches directly on immediate needs of individuals more than any other similar federal service, with the possible exception of the post- office department. A preliminary report of the science advisory board created by the president last July is probably the fullest explanation of weather bureau services offered publicly. A special weather bureau committee has gathered the facts contained in the section devoted to the bureau. Included in its membership is Charles D. Heed, Iowa meteorologist and observer at the Des Moines weather bureau station. Others are Isaiah Bowman, chairman of the National Kesearch council and director of the American Geographical society; Karl T. Compton, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Robert A. Millikan, director of the Norman Bridge laboratory of physics and chairman of the executive council; of California Institute of Technology. Â£$ : |'rpm v tlie' report of these men, tlie following TfactsT-are : taken: ' - Â· Â· Â· Â· " Â· - ' - ' Â· "In the field of agricultural forecasts, in California, $14,000,000 in citrus fruits was saved because weather warnings could be had in time to get smoke pots and "blankets" ready for the orchards. And that was only one instance. Animals, fruit and vegetables on railroads are rerouted, speeded along or slowed to avoid extremes of temperature, or refused by the carrier when weather is too inclement to insure their safe transportation. The river and floods division of the bureau has saved many millions of dollars in property to say nothing of human life, because it was possible to predict water heights from observations at more than 900 stations, and warn dwellers of floods to come. Marine navigation finds no less use for the service of the weather bureau than internal commerce and perhaps a great deal more. Along the coasts, storm warnings are displayed at more than 400 points, and they have been so accurate that only a few storms have been felt for which warning was not given from 12 to 24 hours in advance. Warnings from the West Indies stations of hurricanes sweeping in to the gulf and Atlantic coasts kept ships in port in one instance when their cargoes were valued at more than S30,- 000,000. Climatological service, maintained by more than 4,500 observers who are not paid workers, but who are furnished instruments for observations and reports, has helped to build knowledge in detail of climate over the entire area of the United States, adding to the data furnished by 200 regular observing stations. The largest service of the weather bureau is its youngest. That is the aerological division, only a little more than a decade old, which supplies the needs of aeronautics. There is duplication at present in some of the meteorological work of weather bureau, army, and navy. That will probably be eliminated by joining the forces of all three, and will cut the cost of the weather bureau's operation, although expense involved in improving the forecasting service will consume the saving. However, the total cost of the weather bureau to the people of the United States has never exceeded ?4,600,000 and the budget for 1932 was only $3,200,000. The government's appropriation for air mail at that same time was Â§15,000,000 and for the extension and maintenance of airways, $6,000,000. TENSION IN EUROPE 'pI-llS tension of the European continent continues, with few signs of definite improvement. The French remain adamant to the Italian proposal to reform the league of nations and revise the treaty of Versailles. They are also cold to the proposal for direct conversations with Germany. The most that they will concede, according to reliable reports, is to accept some upward revision of Germany's armament if given OTHER EDITORS f , , ANOTHER WAR Culver Ind., Citizen: It seems impossible to us in America that another war could be launched for some nTMl- y / eportstfrora E "fope indicate a general preparation for another conflict.

If so , he may as well forget it. The American people at the moment are enjoym*- the kind oÂ£ leadership the democratic party has always tried to provide and which the Roosevelt .idminiitra- tion is exemplifying in a remarkable degree. It is not likely that the president will be bluffed by Alfred E. Smith and the United States Chamber of Commerce in his efforts to wrest control of our government from the grasp of the international banker Our chief executive may be sure that he has the overwhelming majority of his fellow citizens behind him m his program. POLITICAL ATTACKS Esthen-ille News: The Daily News has no sympathy for attacks made on the government for purely political reasons. When Herbert Hoover was doing his best to restore prosperity he deserved the co-operation of both democrats and republicans and he got little of either. Ami now for the republicans to open political battle at this time is not proper, dennte what happened during the Hoover administration. The country is Interested in prosperity and the best and quickest possible way to attain it. If the administration's schemes fail there will he plenty of time to prepare for the next election without disturbing the peace now. ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AT IT Allison Tribune: Looking at It one way, what is the difference whether Samuel Insull stays in Greece or gets sent home to inhabit one of our numerous penitentiaries. It is cheaper to let him stay in Greece and he will be about as harmless. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG ANOTHER VIEW OF SURPLUS CROPS HAMPTON, Dec. 1C.--From your recent editorials "Too Conservative" and "Human Nature Again," it is very evident you are not in sympathy with the program of the department of agriculture. Granting- that you may be correct in regard to the shifting of acreage to wheat, yon will have to admit that the land rented to the government will grow no crop and the land shifted to wheat will not grow corn or grain other than wheat. If you will fairly investigate you will find that the 13,000,000 bale cotton crop waa not due entirely to "the government renting all the poor cotton patches and extra work nnd fertilizer," but tn an especially favorable season and if it had not been for the rented acreage there would have been an enormous increase over the present surplus. Now your reference to Secretary Wallace and his associates as radicals and theorists would have been ahout correct if said about Reno and his wild gang, Wallace's is the logical program for the present mess, I believe much more so than any other plan thus far advanced. There can be no "return of general prosperity and increased buying power, here and abroad" as long- as we have a huge burden of surplus anci a greatly increased annual production over what we u^cd when everybody was at work. If we do not reduce our production the American farmer will be on a par with the European peasant for years to come. I believe the farm program will succeed, but it is very evident the opposition is increasing and will continue to increase. The only way we farmers can put it across is for all to get behind and push and it Is also essential that we cease to support any establishment that will not co-operate. I have been in accord with most all of your editorials, but I cannot understand how you can take this altitude. You must have come to conclusions without giving the "Â·Â·Â«!"!Â· irw serious thought.

HOW TO GET SUN IN WINTER THERE WERE some warnings last summer about Â·I- the people who like to lie in the sun on the beaches, to the effect that it was possible that certain skiu cancers might develop from too much of such exposure. It Is to be hoped that this will not be taken too seriously. Certainly it applies only to elderly people, and certainly it applies only to the summer. Children will not develop 'cancer oÂ£ the skin, or at least so rarely as to make the thing negligible, and children and expectant mothers need a good deal oE sunshine. This warning is especially applicable to the winter season, when the short gray days are likely to cut down the tola! amount of sunshine, and the inclement weather tends to keep people Indoors. It should be remembered that ordinary window glass shuts out l)r Clcndenlnc- tho P art: cular light wave in sun- r - 0cntIenln K shine which J3 valuable, and it is interesting to note that cellophane allows it to come through. The only substitute for window glass which we have hitherto had, which was known to allow the ultra-violet rays to come through, was quartz glass, which is quite expensive, until this discovery oC cellophane's property in that respect. We are assured by a member of the faculty of Johns Hopkins university that cellophane actually has this property. He writes: "Cellophane cuts down somewhat the intensity of sunlight without affecting the short wave length limit of the transmitted radiation, therefore, a slightly longer exposure through cellophane will accomplish much the same thing as direct exposure to sunlight." For those who want to take some sun baths during: the winter this is important, and a window frame made of this substance can be constructed so that the child or expectant mother can receive sunlight exposure over a large area of skin surface, nt the same time staying indoors where it is warm, and thus avoiding the danger of chill and exposure. QUESTIONS FROM READERS E. S.: "Will you tell me something of undulant or Malta fever--symptoms, cause, duration? la aspirin useful in treatment?" Answer: Undulant fever is due to a germ which causes a certain disease in cattle. It Is transmitted usually in milk or sometimes by hand infection, as in people who handle meat directly. If left alone it is liable to last quite a long time, several months or even a year. Aspirin Is n o t ' a bad treatment, although the best treatment Is by the use of vaccine made from the germ, or even the use of typhoid vaccine in large doses. Tlillfor's Xnle: Six pamphlets by Dr. Clendenlns can no-.v bo obtained by Fending jo cents in coin, for each, and a Reir addressed envelope r.tamped w i t h a 3 cent stamp, to Dr. Logan CIcndenlnE, In care of this paper.

ONCE OVERS J . J . M U N I 1 V PLEASURES vs. GOLDEN RULE Yes, it is unfortunate if you and your life partner do not enjoy the same sort of amusement and recreation, but this should not give you license to spend most of your time at leisure engaged in the sport you favor. You should have chosen a partner with similar tastes and desires or he. willing and cheerful over a 50-50 arrangement. It I.i unfair to resolve that nothing shall interfere with the hours you choose to spend in your particular sport. It is not a square deal to insist that your partner adopt your plans nnd favorite ways of spending time. How would you like to conform entirely to your partner's tnstes? Too often younp married folk are selfish that way. If they are not willing to give and take equally there are rifls. The happy combination is that in which each finding that the other cannot relish to the same extent certain lines of sport or amusement enjoyed by himself, follows the Golden rule cheerfully and does as he or she would be done by. This solves many of the disturbing- situations that arise. An unselfish, sympathetic attitude adopted by both make a compromi.se easy and brings an harmonious balance in the family life.

Texas, to Mexico City will open within the next year, perhaps late next summer. A writer las made the trip over the new route but he recommends waiting a few months before attempting it as a pleasure venture. My guess Is that this will prove one of the most utilized roadways for tourists in the western hemisphere. It will be the first link in a great pan-American highway system designed some day to reach across the soil of a dozen nations from Canada to the lower tip of South America. A new fairyland will be opened for American motorists and they won't have to set foot on a boat for more than the distance by ferry across a river or two. Just out oE Laredo is a 45 mile stretch without a curve. Beyond Monterey the road reaches an ele vutlon of 8,600 feet above sea level before reaching Mexico City. Tlie road is 20 feet in width. While not concrete all the way, it is said to be a good wide road, -with no grades greater than G per cent.
