OUR NEEDS SUPPLIED: But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.—Philippians 4:19. 'Lock Haven Celebrates All who had anything to do with organizing and managing Lock Haven's second annual p,et parade last evening deserve the warm commendation and gratitude of the citizens, as do the throng who took part and gave Lock Haven and surrounding communities an exciting spectacle and a thoroughly good time. One can not say who had the more enjoyment from the occasion, the paraders who proudly escorted their beloved pets, and who competed for the numerous prizes or the spectators who watched the array of gaily ornamented pets and in some instances, the vehicles and floats in which they were drawn proudly. At any rate, the whole holiday affair was good for us all; one of the community's greatest needs now is enjoyment and recreation to help us forget drab flood days, and this the pet parade supplied to a high degree. Lock Haven and the people of the neighboring area mingled together, interested in their respective representatives in the parade and in the event as a whole. Lock Haven business men deserve high praise for their courage and enterprise in going ahead with the parade and the Legion and others who assisted also merit commendation. The Legion also demonstrated an excellent spirit by staging its festival last evening in connection with the parade, and in the repetition of the festival tonight. The local police handled traffic well, and in general Lock Haven offered a fine example of hospitality to the people of this area. The only trouble with the pet parade is that there must be the lapse of a year before there is another one. Landon has proved that he has the courage required in a candidate. He visited his dentist .fust before the Republican national convention opened. Flag Day The nation's three patriotic observances come closely. Within the space of five weeks we have Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day. Each views the emotion of patriotism in a slightly different manner. With Memorial Day, we revere the memory of our soldier dead whose blood bought us our liberties. On Flag Day we honor the national emblem which is the symbol of all the things we love in our great nation, and with Independence Day, we turn our thoughts to the birth of our liberties as a free country, and what those liberties mean to us. Tomorrow, we come to the second of those days, Flag Day. Actually, the day marks the anniversary of the adoption of the American Flag, made by Betsy Ross, of Philadelphia, at the request of General Washington. Practically, we use the occasion as one for patriotic exercises, for the stirring of national love and national pride. And this is as it should be. It is perhaps a little unfortunate that so many of our patriotic occasions stress the glories rather than the responsibilities of citizenship. One can not be a good and patriotic.citizen; by tributes alone. There seems to be a growing realization of this fact, a growing sense of the responsibilities of citizenship, as well as its privileges. A new and sobering realization of this need seems evident in the flux in which this country's viewpoint has found itself. Flag Day tomorrow should impress on us the need of a citizenship which will demand and obtain good government, which will be unselfish and public spirited about every day affairs of the city and state, as well as devoted in time of national crises. Our patriotism, our ideals of serving our country should not be confined to these three occasions, but should be rather distributed through the year and should cover such matters as payment of taxes promptly, insistence on good government; cooperation with that government, and in general a high ideal of what we, the individuals, owe the government, as well as admiration and homage for that government, which after all, is our collective selves. \ THE WASHINGTON MERKY-QO-ROUND By Drew Pearson and Robert S. Allen BORAH STATES HIS VIEWS All week a pall was on the Capitol. The chambers oi orator;.- were still, the gal-: leries vacant, the elevators idle. Even the Negro barbers, whose free shaves for senators 1 are immensely popular, lounged around readiag the comics. Cleveland stole the show. The only voices heard in the building have been the monotones of Capitol guides., conducting straggling sightseers through the ancient marble corridors. Even the office buildings were still. The monorail subway car between the Capitol and the Senate office building droned back and forth with a single passenger each trip. The list of committee sessions fell off to three for both House and Senate combined. The only heavy labor done was by the conferees in ironing out the tax bill. It was a concurrent resolution that caused the Capitol to be left like a death house. Since neither the Senate nor the House may adjourn for more than three days without the consent of the other, both joined in giving consent. The great mace was removed from its marble pillar in the House to be locked up in the office of the scrgeant-at-arms. The Republicans went to Cleveland. The Democrats went fishing. But now the banks of the Potomac are beginning to look alive again. RANDOM SHOTS AT CLEVELAND A group of Indiana delegates called on Senator Borah at his hotel suite before the nomination and said: "Senator, we want you to come into our state in the campaign and make a speech." "But you are for Landon, aren't you?" he asked. "Yes, but we admire you and want you to make a speech in Indiana." "Well, gentlemen," replied Borah with a smile. "That is very hospitable of you. I shall keep your invitation in mind, but I warn you, I don't think you will like the speech I make." . . . Practically every delegation in Cleveland made a special plea to Landon managers to send the GOP candidate into their state, promising that if so he would be sure to carry it. Said tall, stately Menalcus Lankford, of Norfolk, Virginia: "If you need the Old Dominion to win we will not fail you, Sir." . . . Colonel Frank Kno.v had the largest picture poster at the convention. It stood eight feet high and was six feet wide . . . Headquarters of the Pennsylvania delegation was directly across from Senator Lester Dickinson's campaign offices. One night some of the Pennsylvanians sauntered into the lowan's headquarters and spread the report, sotto voice, that they might swing over to him. Immediately the Dickinsonites sent downstairs and rushed up several boxes of good cigars. The Pennsylvanians helped themselves and departed. MICHIGAN PRESS Senator Arthur Vandenberg is angry at the Michigan newsmen covering the convention. He expected them to rally around him the way the Kansas press did for Landon, but after the first day of his arrival they practically boycotted his headquarters . . . Clint W. Hagger, former U. S. district attorney from Georgia and one of the state's delegates, had a very embarrassing experience. Attired only in his shorts he called on H. H. Turner, alternate from Atlanta, who had the room next to him. But when Hagger tried to re-enter his room, he found the door locked. Just then a maid came down the corridor. He appealed to her to open his door. "Sorry," she replied pertly, "how do I know that's your room? You'll have to go to the office." . . . Jimmy Warburg, ex-Roosevelt Brain Truster was a behind- the-scenes counselor in the Landon camp regarding the monetary platform plank. Now a leading anti-New Deal critic, Warburg and his wife were very active socially at the convention . . . Cecil B. DeMille, movie magnate and California delegate, viewed the convention hall chiefly from the Kleig lights angle. "What a movie set," he sighed. "It's one of the best things I've ever seen." . . . One of the proudest men of the convention was John Q. Tilson of Connecticut, Republican floor leader of the House during the Hoover regime. Attired in snappy white flannel trousers and brown gabardine coat, he sat directly behind the convention chairman in the role of parliamentarian. At each session Tilson, carrying a volume of rules in his hand, solmenly took his seat, leaned back and prepared for action. OGDEN MILLS Ogden Mills, secretary of the treasury in the Hoover regime, was much upset over his rejection by the New York delegation as its representative on the platform committee. The multimillionaire made personal appeals to his fellow- delegates, saying: "I'd rather be on the committee than be elected President." But they curtly turned him down on the ground he was "too reactionary" . . . Three hundred and fifty-eight newsmen attended Senator Borah's press conference the day of his arrival. After one hour of hot-and-heavy questioning the reporters broke into spontaneous applause. Obviously touched, Borah said: "Gentlemen, this is one of the finest tributes ever paid me." . . . A. T. Walden walked practically all the way from Toledo, Ohio, his home, to view the convention. A few hours after he arrived in Cleveland he fell from the ledge of a building he had climbed in order to get a better view of a passing parade . . . Guess which was the wealthiest delegation present. Wrong. It was not New York. It wss Oklahoma, with four oil millionaires: Ex-Senator Pine of Okmulgee; Lou Wentz of Ponca City, chairman of the group; Charles Hawk of Shawnee, and Wirt Franklin of Ardmore. WARY FEMINISM A representative of the national committee for the election of a woman as vice president bustled up to Kenneth F. Simpson, New York delegate, asked if he would vote for a woman for that office. Replied Simpson warily: "I'd have to see what she looked like first" . . . Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth, attending the convention in the dual role of delegate from Ohio and daily columnist, didn't know whether to be angry or amused when a practical joker telephoned her to. say that Mrs. Dolly Gann, sister of the late Vice President Charles Curtis, was in town. Dolly and Alice once waged war 'over dinner-table precedence, are now on speaking terms—but that is about all ... Dolly, incidentally, accompanied by her husband, was boosting for Landon . . . Former Senator Simeon D. Fess, of Ohio, spent most of his stay during the convention in his hotel room working on the manuscript of a book he is writing, "Evolution of the Two-Party System in the United States." (CopjTleht. 1336 by United Feature Syndicate. Inc.) When the average man says a guy made a great speech, it means he heard what he had believed anyhow. sen. Wif'jsm E.

"I really couldn't tell you that," barked Rip. Willy Nilly went down to the pond. "I hear you have a new friend and we all want to meet her," Willy Nilly said to Mrs. Quacko. "Oh indeed, you must all meet her some time," Mrs. Quacko said. I've told her all about Puddle Muddle," and she says it is very fortunate that I have such a fine pond home and such splendid friends.

That's what I.en B. Mitchell learned on his Journey to the cabin of the hospitable mountaineer. "I cleared four square acres here when I moved In, built this cabin and an eight-foot fence from tho timber," the oounutalncer told him. "Then I planted the land to corn that wouldn't grow. Next I tried a field at turnips. The only tur- nln that came up was exactly in the center of my cleared ground, but the croa-lnff It did. more'nmade up for the failure of the rest of the crop.

"Well sir, before I could harvest that lusty vegetable It got so big It pushed down my eight-foot fence on all four skies." On his return home, Mitch stopped again at the cabin. And he was Questioned by the mountaineer. "What's going on in the city?" asked that worthy. "Any manufacturing?" "Yes," answered Mitch, "where I went they are building the largest kettle ever known. It's 440 feet across and 73 feet lilgn." "What In tarnation will they use It for!" asked the Ozarklan. "They'll cook your turnip In It,* replied Mitchell. 6 Western Newsi>a.p«r Union.
