TUESDAY EVENING, FEB. -», 193ft, 1VISK STUPS IN BOAD BOOSTING. In appointing a committee to confer w i t h the Board of Trade tho supporters of tho Broakneck-Melcroft road, rml also to study what should ho lone with, a view to a realization of the plan, a very important step has been taken, Tho Board ot Trade has a very vital interest in every road proposition £ tho adjacent sections, either in the immediate vleluity of Connells- villo or anywhere in northern Fave-Ke ccunly. This body is concerned in the efforts citizens are making to secure the benefits that accrue from mir6ved roads 'as means whereby ,itl sections shall havo the privileges, other and more populous localities now enjoy. The board will be found ready and willing to Kive whatever assistance the local road boosters may desire. It will be glad of the opportunity tc iidvibe the slops to be taken and join w i t h the road associations in promoting their objectives. There should, ih?refore, be no hesitation on part of. tlio supporters of tho several road projects making their wants known to tne Board ot Trade. They can' be assured of a most sympathetic interest as well as practical uid. It is no longer a question ot pro- sentim; arguments why a road should be improved. These are BO apparent, .and have been proven iu so many in- Htancei, that they,need not to be presented again. The Question is how to proceed in order that road Improvo- inenrta may be most certainly hecured, Uy coafereuces between members of committees representing road projects and the Hoard of Trade tho bcft methods of procedure can bo, de- lermined upon and time that might otherwise bo lost can be saved. Tho time of tho year is approaching waen tho preliminary work can not safely be delayed, henc tly 1 advisability oE early action. ISEHVICE MEN STILL SKItVING.

PRECEDENT Time as a Healer of Wounds and Judge of Men's Achievements Changed Rotations U. S. and (tarmany; Changed Estimate Of Woodroiv By DAVID I^AWRENCE Copyrlelit 1UJO by The Courier.) WASHINGTON, Feb. l.--Timo a-J the healer ot wounds and time as the final judge of the achievements ot inon--the thought Is suggested today becaube 13 yea''s ago yestorday the United Slates and Germany severed diplomatic relations while six years ago, 0,11 February 3, 11)24, Woodrow Wilson died. Relations between the United States and Germany havo uudorevno a remarkable change in i3 years. Today they nro not only more cordial than they havo been since t917 but they are roally on a Mendlici basis than thev were before 1914. The United States and Germany in pre-war days had all sorts of friction They did not see eye to* eye iu the Par Bast. Tho potash monopoly and adverse German legislation caused no end of conversation between Iho diplomatic representatives of f h o two countries. And then came the war with ils submarine depredations, which eventually brought Amori a into the conflict after three years ol fruitless ncgoLiiutionh. Although Germain, still fort the Versailles Treaty contains many unjust accusations, tho United Stalett was riot a party to that treaty but made a separate peace. In tho UawcH Plan, the influence of the United States was paramount just, as it was recently in tho maWug of the Young Plan for the settlement of reparations,. And now in the Unancrng of tho rcpai- atiou debts, investors of the United States ate expected to participate along with the people of other coun- tri-es in what tho sponsors of th-o Young Plan bolive will be the financial rehabilitation of Europe. America fiaa played a leading'role In post-war diplomacy in Europe cincl has mediated oa. more- than on-e occasion as between Germany and France. The bettor ilndersLanding between Germany and the United States is in no small measure due to the tact and judgment ot the diplomatic icpre- sentattve-s which both counlriey havo had in Berlin and Wa/.slrinKlon since the war. To tny t h a t , tin- German ambassadors h a \ e boo-n popultur hcie is merely to emphasize j h o way they ttHA r e managed lo put aside tho w a r iis. past history and Jo brine a now p u - sonality into Uicvir representation 01 the Ucrmnu Republic jincl a new viewpoint a.s well.

The number rune into the tens of thousands. ' Of course the President personallr knows nothing about 99 per cent of them or thereabouts. They simply are appointed on the strength of their respactivo showings upon civil service examination*), or eleo upon, the strength of recommendations from their varloiifi eonators, representatives, chairmou or other politically pote-nl folk. * * * Civil eervice appointees do not matter so much. True, It occasionally ia intimated that pull now and then helpe even a civil service candidate. However, a civil eervaut, once in the ranks, ordinarily is disposed ot permanently--· cannot he removed except for mighty substantial reason« and seldom figures in politics thereafter. Term-by-Term appointees are in a different mtegory--district attorneys, collet-tore, uiarohAls--ail that class ol officials. They distinctly do stay Jn politics, and may be regarded as pretty important; otherwise they would not bo appointed. They can make themeelves useful, or, it not, the skids generally can be put under them without a great deal oC difficulty. * * * That the President would uee his card index as «. convenience in keeping members o£ Congress, for instance, in line--this is not' intimated. Still, it is possible to oe how, theoretically, it might be done. Illustratively, suppose- a Senator, say, who previously hitd tupported While House policies, were to turn ugly one clay. Such thingp. have happened. Examples could bo cited of Benators who havo not behaved as it waa expected they would. Suppose, then, that the President should turn to lite card index uud note, at «. glanre, just what appointments he had made on that Senator's recommendation. Not only could ho readily remind the lecalcitrant Senator of past tevors conferred on him, hut a hint might conceivably bo_ convoyed to beneficiaries of the Senator's recommendation, that it would be appreciated il they would do their best to make- the Senator bo good. * ». * Not that the congressional folk believe the Whito House would bring Ihiw kind of pressure to bc«ar on them. Only, tho efficiency ot that c a r d index!' worries them, mainly because they uever saw so efficient a Whito House tenant before--or never know It, anyway. To bo sure, the Whito House sayfc it i6 no new thing. Probably Jiol -- w i t h President Hoover.

According to my theory, the public vocational school of secondary grade should be given a place in the public school program covering the first, second or third years before entrance into employment.
