That does not mean merely that • congi e sfoml loWuinters must keep Iheu iiobcs out It means that no federal ailminislriilion must ever be permitted to use this organization for an> thing but the prevention or punishment of aclilal felonies,. There must never be even the faintest sii-piciun thai its 'activities are dnp<lnd n&mibt my personal or political enemy of a president or. a 'member of his cabinet or -political party. To! why this is imiwrl- ant, ioti need do only oiie thing; imagine the l,itc .Hucy Long in -the White iloiibc, with Ihe matchless or- ganiialion of G Men lying ready for hit, hand to pick it- iip and use il for his O\MI ends U\\cll on thai picture briefly, and you ^ilh^ee that an unscrupulous cxecu- li\e with dieanu, • of a dictatorship could make of this .Bureau of Investigation a tcuonbtic; instrument of rc- ]iii£> ion ^niilh would make Ogpu, Okrana, and Gestapo look like something the Boy Scouts invented. There is, fortunately, no need to lie awake nights worrying about it. There has been not the slightest hint that the present administration would dream of ti.wng to pervert the organization in such way. There i?. no reason to suppose that any of the presi- dential candidates MOW on Hie skyline would harbor such dreams. All we need do is recognize that the machinery is there, and that a president who wanted to be dictator would find it infinitely u?cful. Keeping that fact in mini, we ought to nnderslaiul once and for all that the continued'usefulness of lliis splendid orgaimalion depends on its remaining i>(!i'in,aiiciilly divorced from politics. Valuable as the oullit is, the moment any adim'nis'tralion begin;- trying to use il for its own ends, it will become a curse, instead of a blessing. WEDNESDAY, MAY 6, Opposition. IK Ilcatlliftil The deliberations of Congress in recent weeks havu been noteworthy for the number of empty seals in evidence during the sessions. Debate on the ?800,000,000 lax bill, for in- slance, drew a house atlcntlancc of slightly less than 10 per cent. Only when the final vote was laken did the members t-how up to "go on record." Now this obviously is not a healthy slalc of affairs. The essence of goo:l representative govern'menl is a legis- lalnrc which'.debates thoroughly and intelligently, with an active opposition ready to act as a brake on the major- itv ' Certainly, the minority cannot justify its cxirttc'iiee iv lf :il 'does not present, ilsclf at .tjie scene of: battle; and by the same token it is equally 'hard to oxcusu the majority for its mass indifference.

Barium ——= In nn orchard at the mission of San Juan Batista, In. O,illfornia. pear trees 130 years old still arc producing fruit. A man of my knowledge and ability knows things even though Ihcy have never happened and may never happen. I had only teen a member of my church' just a short while, when I say short white, I mean just a few lioiira, when I discovered that the church realized it had made a big gain when I joined for I immediately took .charge and things began to happen, and you could hear expression on all sides. They soon discovered that I had evidently been born to rule. Well, it was not long until I made myself chairman of the board and put, my son-in-law and hircdman on as lesser members. Of course, being of a kind disposition. I allowed the congregation to put on 1 two, then I proceeded lo reorganize from steps to pulpit; a lot of the members, as well in the preacher, dropped out. That (lid not bother me, as we had too many members and as to the preacher it would-be no li'ouljle to get another and as I would train him we soon had the kind of sermon I felt the members need to hear.
