r\L tJRINKtNG DRIVERS ('Aft Editorial in the Dallas Journal) -The iPflfofmers of prohibition have disappeared from idsti. ISieir promises re-echoed throughout the land i short months ago. Bht now that performance and sibllity might logically be demanded there are no lers of prohibition left to demand of it. They folded tents, turned in their headquarter typewriters and [eparted. If any of the old letterheads are left, they are ed for scratch paper now. But it will be remembered that the reformers hoped to it down traffic accidents by rutting down drunken driv- Ijjf. The theory being that beer and light wines would lispiaee bootrleg liquor. Alas, that is not so. Liquor is till with us and so is drunken driving. The accident roll lOunte to astonishing totals and the death toll is greater lan ever. Sober common sense, however, indicates that drunken Iriviny is not the explanation. Perhaps drinking driving p. Nobody has said much about it, but it is scientifically stablished that the alcohol equivalent of three high-balls Mil mar the judgment, decrease the perceptive powers nd slow down the musrular reastions of an automobile Iw'ver by perlentages ranging from 15 to 50 per |ent. In traffic at Jtortji miles an hour and faster any laterial impairment of alertness and efficiency is bound lo be dangerous and apt to be fatal. SHE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON -»Y RODNIY DUTOHIf NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON—AAA has come in for plentyTf briticiam for its past callousness toward consumers, all pf which your correspondent has reported faithfully and pealously. But it must be said for Secretary Wallace and Admin- strator Chester Davis that, even though at times they lay have succumbed to pressure of combinations of food Industry 'lobbyists, farm group lobbyists, and politicians irho figured the consumer could go hang, they have per- bisted in appointing able, honest, and aggressive men to Represent consumer interests in AAA councils. Anyone who has watched this government operate >r-'a few years must me surprised that they haven't appointed lomplacent, easy-going job-holders who rould ie depended on not to annoy them. * * * * Montgomery will follow Hoover's policy of constantly idging AAA chiefs and reminding them of the con- l&fmer. If you happen to 'be one of those consumer per- s, you can wel lafford to take a bow to the depai'ting Hoover, who urged Montgomery as his successor and is iow going back to his professional job at Duke Univei-- f. ' ' Hoover finally persuaded the administration that it >uld maintain a policy of refusing to cut down supplies i food below those normally available for domestic con- iption. I Nojbody paid much attention to his words, but Wal|lace recently enunciated the Hoover policy—a milestone for AAA—as follows: "Two things we want to be sure of. One is that there will be the same quantity of food per capita available ibi the American people as during the decade of the i; that is, that we take care of the consumer. The second is that quantities available in excess of that, for yhich foreign purchasing power is no longer available, [should not be produced." :|! * * * Appointment of Democratic National Committeeman l^incent Miles to the Social Security Board is an obvious [political appointment and a Roosevelt favor to Senator Joe Robinson, who faces .re-election, complicated by (probable Huey Long troubles, next year. You didn't hear about it, but the name of Miles pop- Ijied up once before. Roosevelt suggested him to Secretary Ickes as a candidate for the new job of undersec- |r«tary of interior. Ickes was urging his personal assistant, Harry Slat- |tery—probably the best man in Washington for the job, not great favorite with professional politicians. Ickes |H6lIered in pain'when Miles was suggested. Then Roosevelt and the interior secretary "compro- |ljii£ed" with the appointment of ex-Congressman Charles IWest of Ohio, White House liaison man in 'Capitol Hill, 1 The point of this story is that Roosevelt never seriously I considered Miles for the job, but was advancing him- to llfekes for trading purposes] Ickes could hardly refuse to rftoHv to the White House will twice. * # * * Don't overlook the possibility that the spreading of Italo-Ethiop.ian war may first involve Europe through '(German attack on Russia, aided by Poland, Interna- |$o'nal experts here aren't. | The common idea that Hitler is likely to leap into Austria when Italy's back is turned and her strength is ".JV'Abyssinia overlooks the fact that Italy's mobilization tiais, temporarily at least, strengthened rather than weab- IjTed her military position in Europe. The assumption of suspicious observers who take this of thought is that Japan would simultaneously at- the Soviet from the other end. BARBS 'Another: brother of the bachelor Prince of Wales to (d.

MARSHALL AUSTIN. Sept. 4. (/P)~A colored Jahitor stalked Into the press room election day. "Going to do something I never $ Id before," he remarked. "WHat's that?" someone queried. "Going to vote, for repeal." "How come?" "We pros run things so bad I want to see what we wets cati do." Interest In the modernization of the Texas Bangers, nationally as well as within the state, continues unabated. When a legislative crime Investigating committee proposed last fall to overhaul the famous. marihunt- ers, northern and eastern newspapers evinced Interest. The major steps in the process, the passage of the public safety department bill and the actual effectiveness, of the creative law were told again and again by correspondents. There has been no letup in the demand. Out-of-stnte interest, of course, is due to the glamor of the name, second only, perhaps, to that of the Canadian Northwest Mounted. Both have been Immortalized In song and story. The "westerns" regularly carry stories on the hard-riding, straight- shooting Bangers. Good features, illustrated with plenty of dashing horses, wild-eyed steers and hurtling riatas, sell right along to newspapers. Not a great while ago the season's most popular musical comedy In New York featured-a. Banger theme. The fact the Bangers t in recent years have been shot to "pieces by, political interference and -hamstrung by lack of money, modern equipment and methods, hasn't meant a thing to the avid reader of "thrill" fiction and features. To him the Bangers still are the steel-muscled, flint-chinned officers who always get their men. Election day was the most complete holiday in the capitol since last Christmas. Everything was shut tight except-the secretary of state's office, which allowed some out-of- town tax experts to work among its franchise tax records. Some officials did "a little work behind closed doors, one being. Er-. nest O. Thompson, chairman of the railroad commission.

Idaho Harvest SALMON, Idaho, (IP) — Farmer Shane Brown was irrigating an alfalfa field and thinking his harvest season still was some weeks away. Suddenly the water ceased to flow In the small ditch. A 20-pound salmon, dipped by the bucket of a water wheel 1 in the edge of Salmon river, had become lodged in the small ditch, damming the flow. The salmon was caught by Farmer Brown, after a struggle. NEWS Want Ads are effective.
