TJie many clmngw in.building nnd materials over tliu pa.*l '20 years certainly makes it imperative that this be dune, and done without too much delay. While we are on this subject of buikl- ijiy, should there Jiot be some sort of protection to the average, home purchaser Buying n home as he does, perhaps with his entire iit'e savings, lie should have some assurance that the hidden materials •of,the house, such as setpic tanks, plumbing mid the like, are properly installed.. Home owners are the basic taxpayers of a community, the life blood of income from which the boz-ongh receives the money to maintain itself. While it is true that there is no legal responsibility on •the town's part to guarantee these maters where there are no active ordinances there does remain a moral obligation. DO YOU REMEMBER?

"LAND QF THE WRITHING SUN" Around the Clock ROBOT WARFARE Jt is likely that the Xax.i Germans would willingly destroy half the world if they might [hereby win complete control of the othed half. Their development and use of weapons indicate that there are no lionvirs they would nnt invoke to promote their conquest, no diabolical instruments of destruction they would not use remorselessly to accomplish their purpose. This fact naturally impels other .nations, in .self-defense, to'seek weapons no less deadly. ' -And because human flesh is so vul- nc/viblc, ; mc | human life so valuable, there has now arisen a quest for "robot" fighters to take man's place on the battlefronts. iMochanical'weapon? tend to grow so -ingenious nnd destructive that "thev almost suggest tlie fabled fighting men who rose from the earth, at command, .arid carried on the battle. ;Wins-ton Ohmx-hill, telling of current damage and killings accomplished by the Germans in London, shows the peril of greater, flyi,,- ,-ockct bombs, 'almost self-directed, on which tl u .

Thomas K. Dewey, if elected, will be our youngest president. At 42 he will-break Theodore .Roosevelt's record o.r' entering the. Whitu House ,,t 43. Jvoosevelt. became president through JMc- Kinley".; death. The youngest presidents to be elected, so Car, were Cleveland at 47 and Grant at 4!>. If Gov. Dewey is superstitious, he may be alarmed at the fate of the other young men who ran. The first of Henry Clay's three unsuccessful races came when lie was 47. .But the most youthful of all was Bryan, nominated when he was .'J(J. only one year a bow the minimum age nec- es.sary for a president. He, too, ran three times, always unsuccessfully. Gov. Stassen, one of Dewey's rivals for the nomination, is ojily 37. If tVitc should reserve him for the 1948 nomination, he would break Dcwev's record. •Servicemen's addresses: Howard K. Hubbell, MM 1-c, U. S, S. Pierce, c-o Fleet Post Office, San Francisco, Gal.
