Clay Center, Kanw Complete X-ray Laboratory Hylo Table ARMY JOHN MARSHALL JOHN MARSHALL was the ' fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, but in the judicial annals of our land he undoubtedly stands first. At a time when the Republic was young and hesitant, in its early decades of i sell-erovernment, his clear-cut i decisions fortified the Constitution as the basis of our national life. He was appointed to the highest judicial office in 1801, when the Supreme Court seemed to be one of the government agencies which was failing of its purpose. In thirty-four years of devoted work, his decisions, which have 'never been surpassed for clarity, brilliance and courage, gave form and substance to the Constitution and helped establish the Supreme Court as the bulwark of the American form of democratic government. Marshall was born in 1755 of pioneer stock, the eldest of fif-, teen children in a family where money was scarce. His schooling (Copyrlihted by Memorial and changed to fit iuto that historic1" Constitution rnrt accomphsn the same desired results we were getting out , of the AAA.

A word to the wise ought to be sufficient, j.,-,; ; i c 'ROOSEVELT THE FIGHTER. ' Franklin D. Roosevelt has achieved international fame for his charm and courtesy, his patience and good nature. The Roosevelt smile has become a national institution. But there is always a limit to any man's patience and good nature, and forebearance ceases to be a , virtue. t For three years now the opposition has hammered, at the president in a desperate effort tn ston his Droarram of relief for the destitute, the men and wom- pn hrnneht . to an embarrassing condition throueh no fault of their own. The capitalistic class want ed no assistance for the poor ana needy. They wanted no government fiTTirta distributed that did not go out to hanks and railroads to big business. . 1 1 - : RnnBPvoH'ii Erood nature did not alt this uniust criti cism.

But in his message at ,i,he opening or congress ne gave way to his fighting instinct and let the opposition have a broad side that', echoed arouna me world and, was applauded by the common people: everywhere. His hitter critics were shocked. Evidently they expected him to tdi it i-vino- down. Now they are complaining that the president has turned polit)lcai, mat ne lacus u lenity, that ' he fears defeat.

S. Floberg, veteran engineer on the former L., K. & W. railroad, who lived in Miltonvale, is ill in a hospital in California, believed to be in Los Angeles. Mr. Floberg was found on the streets of Los Angeles In a bewildered condition and was taken to a hospital. He has relatives in San Francisco and Sacramento and it is belived he was on his way to visit them. According to word received here, his condition is slightly improved. His son, Clarencel Flobers, in Arizona wired his sister in Sauna tuat he was enroute to California, but it is not known if Mr. Floberg will be returned to his home. WM. ATKIXSOX INJURE D.

Endowed with an exceptionally fine legal mind, he soon achieved leadership in the Bar of Virginia. He was called to fill many public offices, including that of Secretary of State under President John Adams, before he was designated to the Supreme Court. He died at the age of eighty, in 1835. The glory of his contribution to American history has not dimmed since. Within a few days after his death, plans for a suitable memorial, in front of the Capitol in Washington were begun, but they were not carried out until half a century later. The sum of $3,000 which lay forgotten in a Memorial Fund during the intervening years had grown to $20,000. Congress matched it with a similar amount and the unveiling of the impressive monument shown in the sketch took place on May 10, 1884. Extension Commtaton.)
