Chairman Blackwoori has frequently expressed his desire for a real audit of his department. In justice to him, as a prospective candidate for the governorship, and to the public such an audit should be made at the, earliest possible date, and with that in view action by the special legislative session which will probably] be held in the late summer is desirable. invested capital and the livelihood of many families placed in a precarious position, but the state highway department, We venture to say, i* suffering an actual loss in revenue by virtue of the "inability of gasoline dealers here to meet nearby competition.

The disturbances have attained rmch proportions, however, as to indicate that agitators have found fertile soil for their seeds of unrest. It is a fair observation that wherever churches have become the object of popular hatred and ilislru-l Ihcy have themselves to thank. When religious organizations., permit themselves to become identified in the public mind with government they inevitably share the resentment, which the misdeeds of government produce. Anti-religious outbursts in Spain, as in Mexico and Kui-siii, may be coached and directed by communists or others •opposed to religion as .such, but they find their mass support in men and •..women who have suffered exploitation and oppression at the hands of pietis- . tic rulers.-who used subservient or power and wciith seeking religious organizations as their instruments. A church that seeks to make itself, or permits itself lo be made an arm of the government can expect no more love or respect than the government with which iU is allied.

Likely enough they will marvel a little that you can buy goods so fresh ("This mayonnaise might have just been made in your kitchen") so carefully prepared ("It took us three years to perfect this cream") . . . so dependable' (This cigarette has always the same satisfying fragrance") ... so recent (Only the other day this diamond bracelet came to this country").
