AVIATION ADVANCES, A S A BY-PRODUCT of the World war sustained by '"··continuous' usage, aviation is oh the wing toward becoming .a major agency of .transportation · In the United States. New companies are being organized everywhere and those which took root after the war are expanding and extending their lines until now, thruout the country, one may readily choose his 'destination via the air so far_ as convenience and safety are concerned. - · . America admittedly was slow to seize upon aviation in comparison with the extent to which this mode of travel was earlier envisioned and put Into actual operation in the European cations. In World war time, and prior to It, well-established lines for passenger traffic were in , vogue, for instance, between London and Paris. The unexplainable presence of airminded- ness and the quick progression beyond the fear of It, were the chief factors of this early leadership. Characteristically and swiftly, however, America has emerged .from its erstwhile lethargic attitude toward flying and is today the leader in the development of and participation in the use of the airplane. Airplane manufacturers are, in direct proportion to the indulgence of the American public, emerging from the pioneering processes of the industry and its equivalent high costs. And^on this basis of gradual acceptance the industry is ^soon to be aware of production schedules comparable with which- was the mushroom growth of the automotive industry. We must' allot equal time for its development. There is automatically much on the side of aviation which is analogous to the success toward which it is heading. Primarily,' there is a definitely fixed, place for aviation in i the transportation picture of this day. Similarly, automobiles and railroads have a definite function and, stetu^jn, the transportation scheme and ^?"^^~^pt,i'^tM^^i^iS^'i.airMs3fe; is., confronted maintenance and therefore will owe its quicker development strictly to the proportion by which greater usige will increase production and thereby reduce costs. The airmail is providing abundant peacetime encouragement for an outlet of America's talent fin the air. Where originally carrying the mails was the sole excuse for the existence of these lines, passenger travel is now gradually supplementing this development.- And the swiftness with- which the nation is adapting itself to this method of transportation is complement to its increased safety. The use of the flying machine is revolutionary, yet in this period of transition^frbm land to air we find that acceptance of it is steadily grovving year by year. The next generation will fly, and think nothing o f it. ' ' · · ' · Answers iiom . · qury o e Globe-o=zc lie Information Bureau,* Frederic 3. HnslUn. Dlreclor, Wa.tlilnslon, D.

Clark Hoover, West DAILY BATH GOOD FOR SKIN T HE SKIN, If )t is to be beautiful, must be healthy. And in order to be healthy it must be well nourished from within and kept clean-and supple by external treatments. No application to the skin is so regularly performed as the bath. . The,outer layer of the skin, the derma, is a dry layer of cells that are constantly being shed · and scruffed off. They are held together In the outer .layer like an elastic armor by the oil .,, from the fat glands. There should be just enough of this oil, and neither too much or too little, if the skin is to have the delightful satiny feeling we like. A bath at proper temperature' used daily is the best way of' obtaining this kind of beauty. But the- skin has a peculiar relationship to all the other organs of the body.

The reason seems to be that so far the five-year 'plan has mainly been concerned with plant construction. Now some of the plants are completed and should be producing. The soviet authorities are finding it easier to set up a plant--mainly by purchase abroad--than it is to make it produce. The difficulty is a great lack ,of skilled labor and technicians. This obstacle to soviet success was predicted when the^ive-year plan was launched. The_ ( Moscow authorities are making great efforts to overcome it, but it is going to be a hard task. j ' · Meanwhile the Soviets are staging another trial of self-admitted traitors, similar to the great show put on last fall with a number of engineers who confessed sabotage, accused capitalist spies, were sentenced to death and unaccountably reprieved. This time the prisoners are economic experts and politicians. They are making the same sort, of sweeping confessions, blaming: their misdeeds on temptations from" German capitalists. The show seems to be much less popular than that last fall,-when the ^republic seethed with anger. This time the Russian people seem to be apathetic about capitalistic plots; - Meantime there is unrest. A far eastern soViet commander is arrested, charged with v a plot to make himself dictator of Russia, and leaders of an alleged revolutionary plot in the Ukraine, including former high officials, are sentenced to the prison camps. Russia is nearing a crisis with her five-year plan, it appears. , NOT THE PLACETO BEGIN A PROPOSAL occasionally heard these days to use N EW,t_YORK, March^li--Modern science )S doing ,.£ everything io^its p*owef to fender the professional humorist liqra de combat. Things have become so serious that the professional humorist is being forced ,to the expedient of kidding the scientist--for want of better material. The latest dastardly blow at the funny man's livelihood, is the equipping of all newly built railroad car windows .with handles, similar to those on automobiles. That, of course, marks the end of the screamingly funny wheeze about the lad trying to open .a car window for a pretty dame, and bursting a blood vessel. \. : . ·THINK OF A^NUMBER--Twenty partners comprise A a new law firm just come to life in the Bond Belt With legal fees, ordinarily, what they are, with only half a dozen members to a firm, can you picture the tariff that an hour's consultation would amount to with any one of that 20-team outfit ?

V ERBIAGE BY THE TON--Members of congress divested themselves of 40,500,000 words during the seventy-first session--enough words to make almost 540 novels.

Call to mind those 540 novels he saved you from, and petition heaven's chpicest blessing on his soft and flaxen head. have a little magazine before me which was forward' ed by a friend who oh more than one occasion has attempted to belittle me. In this magazine he has marked this one wisecrack: "The trouble with us is that whenever we are attacked by writer's cramp, it usually attacks us between the ears." Until I hear to the contrary, I'm assuming that there's gravel in the remark and that it is directed at this department! ·--o-- · · · hope that a glance at th3 J?g|f| statistics contained in the .*8SP*"following article' prepared by the "safety first" committee of the Iowa Lions clubs will generate in every reader a caution abou* ^crossing the street when a car is hearing down on him: "The fastest human, ruuning 100 yards in 10 seconds, can only average a mile in about 2% minutes. "Most any car can do a mile in less than one minute.

To the contrary, they are required by the statutes to close on legal holidays. Section 9545 of the Iowa banking law is quoted as providing many. 6. Where is the Little Brown Church in the Wildwood?

The bath, therefore, by influencing these nerves, affects the work of the heart, the kidneys, the liver, the stomach, and most of all, the nerves and brain. , Man has ingeniously devised'many kinds of bath for himself--to benefit, protect and improve his skin, and thru it the health of his whole body. There are air, sun, water, mineral, -mud, mustard, salt and bran baths; and plunge, shower, sponge and vapor baths; and body, foot, sitz, face and hand baths. The'cold (65 F.) and cool (65 to 75F.) water bath is stimulating in its effect. For its best results il should be taken immediately on arising, and shouk last only a few minutes. The- full ivarm bath (from 85 to 98 F.) and the tepid bath (under 90P.) have soothing effects on tirpd nerves and overwrought 'brains. Therefore, theoretic ally at least, they remove wrinkles. They relieve wear iness and the muscle ache of hard work. Therefore the best time to take them is at the end /of a har( day's labor. QUESTIONS FROM READERS I. C.

The further provision is included that "any bank or mercantile paper falling due on any of the days above named shall be considered as falling due on the succeeding business day." In addition, an amendment passed two years ago by the assembly provides that when any one of the legal holidays falls on Sunday, .the following Monday shall be considered a legal holiday, it was emphasized that the law clearly makes it illegal to'transact general i banking business on a legal holiday. --o-- jm^ don't like' to fall back into |gSs|ythe v .hablt of crabbing every- ^Sfc' thing.

In the process I have happened upon any number of impressive editorial tributes to T. A. Potter. Everywhere the news of tht! tragedy which has'saddened Mason City was treated as more important on that day -than the news of tho legislature or of congress because I*, was given the bannerlines. That's because Mr. Potter was wide'-/ known and universally liked among his fellow men. But the choicest tribute to Trume Potter came to me from the father of an 8 year old Forest Park boy who lives near the Potter home. He told me about trie tears and the poignant grief of this little lad, vyno remembered the dozens of times' he had sat on "Uncle Trume's" lap and listened to one of Mr. Potter's incomparable stock of children's stories. He had lost a buddy. Here was genuine sorrow and it wa^i shared by every little boy or girl in the region about the Pottei home. I doubt that a finer thing could he said about a person than thnt he has and deserves the affection of a child. This epitaph written in the tears of his little friends is Ilia one which would count most wltli T. A . Turner would consider it a favor if some friend would swear for him whenever he goes over the work of the legislature and learns that expenses are being increased rather than lowered. It must be hell for x governor to want to make a good lecord and then have a btincn passing laws that will defeat his retrenchment plans. HAUGEN'S DISTINCTION Decorah Journal: The death ol Congressman Cooper of Wisconsin brings a distinction to the congressman of this district. Hon. G. N. Haugen, L,L. D., N.

Iowa Falls Citizen: Anyway, the people of Iowa can go away and leave Governor Turner and when they come back they will find him in the self-same place. The greot tank and file -of our people have. faith in Turner and he will be tnuj to his trust. However, the opposition is strong and Turner needs tho. nelp and encouragement of the people. MOTIVES TRANSPARENT . Hampton Chronicle: There is no honest motive behind the present investigation of the state university management: Everyone who is acquainted with the facts in the matter can see that. In order to hit some one higher up, the character assassins must involve everybody connected with the university from President Jcssup down.
