OCEANO Sea Snakes It is belif' ed that seu snakes do not grow nun li longer than 12 or 13 feet, an article in Pathfinder Mag-, .hie. 1 pp iking of sea snakes found near tiie coast of northwestern Au iralia the National Geographic society says: ".Sea snakes are frequently seen curled up asleep on the surface of the water. These reptiles are poisonous and grow to about 12 feet in length. Sea snakes are distinguished by tiie compressed, rudder-shaped tail, end they are unable to move on laud. Their food consists chielly of fish. SANTA BARBARA (UP) Fos-1 sils of a whole 60 million years old j were shipped from the Dr. A. P. ' Ousdal collection here to the Smithsonian Institute at Washing-' ton, D. C. The Great Barrier Reef, fronting the coast of North Australia, is the largest coral reef in the world. It is 1000 miles long and 30 miles wide. Tiie testimonial oS a man who knows It expresses the views of former President Calvin Coolidge on the issues of the Presidential Campaign. Mr. Coolidge says: Before we decide that we want a change we ought to determine what the chances are of securing any improvement. We are told that we ought to have a competitive tariff. Our producers are not suffering from any lack of competition. Is it proposed to put our wage earners in competition with those of India, China and Japan? But we are told again that by reducing our tariff we can increase our foreign commerce. Every foreign nation wants our tariff reduced. No foreign nation wants to increase our commerce. An independent nation ought to keep within its own control the authority to determine its own revenues and regulate its own commerce. No government has ever yet been devised that could make the people prosperous all the time. But a bad government will constantly keep the people in distress. The assurance that the pending Democratic raids on the 1 reasury will be defeated by Republican victory in November would no doubt have the same effect in reviving all kinds of business as the defeat of the Democratic greenback craze and the free silver issue. The more this campaign has progressed the more I am convinced that the public welfare requires that he (Hoover) should be re-elected. I reiterate my support of the President and reassert mv faith in the Republican party, the most efficient instrument for sound popular government ever intrusted with the guidance of a great nation. We have tens of millions of wage earners in this country. The Republican party has never believed that they could be furnished with suitable permanent employment unless some one coum derive a reasonable profit from employing them. We have advocated strengthening the position of the employer in order that he might pay better wages to his employees, enlarge the consumption capacity of the people and increase the market for farm and factory. All this is a question of method, of the adoption of a means to an end. Always the end has been to improve the well-being of the ordinary run of people.

What saves us is not our laws or our lawmakeis, but our own sense of right, and the reason Prohibition has been such a failure is because it has outraged the countrys sense of right. This was the statement made in San Francisco yesterday by the Rev. Dr. William Kirk Guthrie, for 25 years pastor of the First Presbyterian Church and an outstanding figure in church and civic work. Dr. Guthrie spoke on behalf of Proposition No. 1 on the November ballot repealing' the Wright Act. Prohibition has treated us as though we were incompetents and criminals and W'e have refused to be so treated, said Guthrie. All of this talk in connection with prohibition, about the majesty of the law and the sanctity of the Constitution has fallen on deaf ears. Addressing himself to the dry churchmen of the state, Guthrie said: Once again foolish churchmen of the state have joined hands with the state, invoked the civil arm and the terror of the sword in an effort to crush out mans freedom and to take from him his liberty of conscience. I thank God that they have failed and may God give them grace to learn wisdom and humility in their failure; but what a trail of blood and shame and sorrow they have made. Innocent people have been murdered; armed thugs invested with authority have broken into our homes and outraged our liberties. Agents have solicited per pie to drmk and to buy liquor that they might drag them to jail; and the people have soothed themselves with the sophistry that the end justified the means. We have corrupted the peace officers of the country until all law has fallen into disrepute. We have built up an 1 army of bandits which it will take years to get rid of, and worst of all we have made drunkenness fashionaole. It is time to get rid of all of this. We have had too much external regulation. Let us try a littie interior discipline. Lee us boldly tell our reformers to reform themselves; for they have taken a great moral issue and made a political football of it. Let us tell them to leave us alone. Get rid of the Wright Act and restore California to liberty by voting Yes on Proposition No. 1. DOESNT BELIEVE THAT SUNDAY SCHHOL SHOULD HOLD SUNDAY PICNICS The following letter and answer appeared in tne OctoQer 8 issue of Forward, a weekly paper pub-lished by the board of Christian education of the Presbyterian church 111 the United Stales, and was written by a member of the local Presbyterian Sunday scliooi to tne depai iment Talking It Ovei With Steve. As Steve points out, ne probably wnl be misunderstood and criticized by some people, but we are thoroughly in accord with his reply and, nke him, do not believe in being too straight-laced. "Dear Steve A Sunday school I kiiow is planning to have a picnic after church service. I guess they will have religious singing and an address, and probably they w.ll not do anything wrong. But I wonder whether they ought to have tins on Sunday. It is likely to lead some people to think that any kind of amusement will be all right on Sunday since the Sunday school had a picnic on that day. It looks to me as if the Sunday school is trying to imitate tiie world. N. C. W Arroyo Grande, Calif. And to this, Steve replies; ' It seems to me that the Sunday scbool you describe is trying to do a good thing. Their purpose is not amusement in the worldly sense, but a gathering together in Gods outdoors of parents and childien for a rengious use of tbe day. li ounday schools womd have more gatherings of this kind theie vTouid not be so much temptation .or the young people to run off to worldly amusements. ... , "Yes, some people will misunderstand and criticize. You remember they criticized the Saviour for healing a man on the Sabbath, for pe. nutting His disciples to pluck some grains of corn, and for many other things that Jesus did on the Sabbath. The Pharisees called these righteous acts breaking the Sab bath. And some will criticize the writer for answering this question as I have. . , 1 I do not wish to be misunder-stood. I believe that the Sabbath i Day should be kept holy, but I be-lieve that a right use of God s out-of-doors is a proper use of the Sab- ! bath. I do not believe in Sunday , amusements which desecrate the j Sabbath; we can get along without them. , , , , , Perhaps it would be better not to call this Sunday school gather- ! ing a picnic. That sounds like amusements. Why does the school 1 not give their gathering some name like a Sunday school retreat or a Sunday school all-day meeting, the name often used in the south where churches come together for an allday meeting, bringing their lunch baskets and having a social time as well as the religious services?
