Few government employes iviii afl'ord .to "give iip their salaries entirely; Ijtil even if they took Hie heaviest reductions they could endure, the government's financial problem would still remain. The times cull fur an extensive, logical program of retrench muni. Cutting the president's salary is not the'best way to begin. A Mistaken Idea An'article in a recent issue of the .Yale Daily News remarked' that politics : is altogether too dirty a business for gentlemen to follow. ; "The moat s-'criwis of all menaces to American principles," wrote the undergraduate editor, "is the increasing- disgust of educated yoimg*-men for politics:- Politics no longer itrii decent profession." -Some allowance, of course, must lie made for the pangs of disillusionment tiiat tome to all cophomores. When you are just beginning to grow up .'it is a trifle hard to retain a sunny optimism in the face of your dawning discovery that the. world has an abuml- ancc'of rogues and itolts in public office. But there is something rnllier dismaying about this Yale editor's pronouncement, just the same. The dirtiness of politics may be a menace to American principles, as he says; much more serious a menace, however, can be found in the fact that we seem to he developing, at our more aristocratic colleges and universities, a body of young men who feel themselves much too good for the weary task of rolling up their sleeve.-; and helping to .«cl things right. . Politics is dirty, of. iwiivse. Otic d.-ie;; OUT OUR WAY not have to go to Yale to find thai out. Bui its dirtiness will never in thin world be remedied by cdticnled young men who liiul it too messy to touch. The way to clean it up js to jump into it with bolh feet and go to work. Of course, one young man by himself can't do much, no matter how hard lie tries. Hut he can accomplish a lot more by pitching in and, working than by .-itling on the sidelines K-H! pn'ssing « scented handkerchief (o his patrician nostrils. lOven a student editor should be able to see that. Among ullicr UiiiigK, mil 1 colleges and universities mx: supposed to lit young men for leadership; and leadership never comes from tho.-u who have an aristocratic ^lisdain for dirly jobs. This lad at Yale has indicted his own alma mater more severely Uian he has i'mliclrd the profession ,of politics. •—Bruce Gallon.

Mechanical suction is applied to el the venom out of the body, nd the anlivenine, which oppns- snake v.-'ioiu, is injected all i-fiaml the spot at which the bite centred Jl is believed that a e dose ol the antivcaiine Is ccessary lu counteract the snake ilc.

H is important to realize that tile earlier the ' treatment Is given the lirealer the probability of sav- jiiiK lite. I'conla who live in regions where dangerous snakes are numerous should always have an- livcnine available. It should Vq remembered also that large doses of this substance •injected directly around (he simkc jbllc nre important In recovery and that immediate suction to get as much of the venom out as possible is another essential procedure. of Paris Is Landlord for Ninety of Its Churches SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 1932 General Mitchell Says Air Force 'Way Behind DETROIT, (UP)—The Untied Stales continues to trail other na- llons In military aviation, in the belief of lirig. Oen. William E. Mitchell, who licadod the nation's air forces in the World War. Our planes, even the latest pursuit lyiw, !'.e says arc 40 lo 60 miles un hour slower lhan those of other great powers. Military advancement In aviation has not kcptjpace with commercial strides, he believes. Tlie Deiscl engine has made great advancement, General Mitchell said and seems to have a bright future. As an aid to aviation, tlie aeronautical division nf the weather bu- roau lias been a great help to onion and |»tato growers, Kays the general, and a handful of corn syrup rubbed on Hie wings, will do more lo keep the ice from forming than any tiling the. government has devised.

But we are interested . in spending the money we have, to get the most out of it. One way—and not a new way, either—is to make a budget. Put down, week by week, the money that comes in. Put down beside it, week by week, the money that goes out. So much for food, so much for clothing, so much for rent. So much for giving," and for luxuries. It won't always be easy, of course, to stay within the budget. That's where advertising helps you. Advertisements in this newspaper tell you how much rugs, butter, breakfast foods, dishes, homes, automobiles will cost, before you go shopping! They -point BW^** out ways to save money. They show you how to cut a little here, a little there. And each day, they tell about new inventions, new products new ways of doing things, that help make this life of ours very nuich worth living[
