MONUMENTAL SURPLUS Beleieve it or not. experts say tlicre is too much food in this country, and what to do with it is a serious,problem. Even •while- most i>f the world is hungry, some 'Americans are wondering how we're go- ,ing to get rid of our surplus. The storage places-are jammed and additional • : crops arc .coming along. Grain, moat' 1 , ..'I'ish, and .so on, are all piling up. • There .need be no worry, however. The ' food-jam will soon be broken. With the European war-apparently rushing to a conclusion, it seems likely that the sea and land routes will soo;i be opened again for traffic. Then there will he an out."pouring, mainly from this country, nf • food, medicines, clothing and necessary materials of all kinds, such as the world never saw or .imagined before. Most of-it, presumably, will be paid for ill one way or another, but it isn't likely that the lines will be drawn very tightly between the "haves" nnd the "have nots." The main idea will be to feed the starving and clothe the naked. And in that task, if it is well adminis- t.i-red, Uncle Sarn will enlarge his foreign friendships.

Billy Narbutaitis, popular tavern keeper in Union City, celebrated his 10th anniversary in business the other day. Billy was given a time at his place with many of his old friends in attendance, Clarence Quackenbush and Frank Ford rendered some musical numbers, and a luncheon was served. Billy received a cane from Clarence's collection "Old Rebecca" had another flat this Childish Visual Defects WHEN THE child llrst enters school there is suddenly thrust upon it -in entirely new set of demands which involve exactitude of an entirely different nature to that to which it' had been accustomed. These demands affect particularly two organs—the eye and the ear— and, of course, a third—the brain. Even in early childhood the par-, ents usually can spot the situation if the child for some reason or They arrested an old beggar in New, York the .other day and gave him his- choice of either 10 days in jail or a .$10 fine. , The beggar took the jail sentence. • When they had given him a bath and a shave and replaced his rags and tatters with some decent ciothes, he didn't look so old, and he told them that he was only 42. . They also found that he had ? nickels, dimes and pennies on him, and'several bank books showing more .than $3,000 on deposits. "When you have so much money why do you beg?" he was asked. "Oh .thai, money is for a rainy day," he replied. "I'm not going to other is more or less hard of hear- I use it as long as I can earn some HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?

There is one reason why this may not occur, in .lf)JS the Kaiser, Jlimlenburg, riiirlomlnrlT imd • the German civil officials had nothing 1 to fear personally from surrender. They would lose their official positions, perhaps much of their \veulth, but their lives were reasonably secure. While there was a loud cry, cs- pocinlly in England, of "Many the Kai- Sfr.!" and the Versailles treaty provided for the trial ol' war criminals, this c;imo to Nothing -mid possibly the German rulers expected it to come to noKiiny. Today it is different. Hitler, Himmlur. Got'riiiK iind the,rest have killed so many people nnd ruined so many lives that they cannot feel secure without an army to back them up. Once the troops lay down their arms, the hunt For the Nazi leaders begins, and much blood will be shed. On this account: Hitler and Company will keep Germany fighting as long is humanly possible. ''Throe-fourths of the motorists'have driven less than half their pre-war mileage according to the estimate of Joseph E. Bnync, general sales manager for a large automobile company. Of the other quarter a good many have legitimate reasons for the amount of driving they do. As always, it is a few who make the trouble. "'• "The talk of the town," (Union City) is the one-oyod native of Trinidad who is a guest at. tlio homo of the .Kspo.rslodt family of 2G Neagle street. The Ksper- stedt's visitor .has a large, hooked nose and wears the same bright green coat all year round. She says "hello" more frequently than a switchboard operator but there isnjt even a hint of a. smile in her- voice. She isn't much trouble to her hosts and has never been asked to yield ration points to the Esporstcdt menage- because the only i'uod she ever demand,* is a cracker. Her past is a shady one indeed. While still in her teens she wont to Jive with a man who operated a tavern. There she .spent her days sleeping and her night sitting on the bar. chewing pretzels. -About a year ago she left this tavern keeper for a mechanic named Oscar (Mrs. lOsperstedt's brother). It might have been Oscar's mandolin playing that lured her, but then ngain it. might have been his pay checks. He's a defoiso worker. Tn some ways, however, she- is very respectable. For instance, she never swears, and as for drinking 1 — .she'll bite anyone who "approaches" her with a breath rooking of alcohol. She's well known down in the Greenwich Village section of New York city where the story goes that she lost that left eye of hers in a barroom brawl with another woman. 'Seems the eye was poked out with a stick because sl/c told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth— about the other woman's' age. ing. But defects oC vision may ac- cur without anyone being aware of them. In the playtime world of babyhood and early childhood* the requirements of accuracy for vision are not very exact. The toys, the playmates, the food and eating utensils are large and if they arc a little blurry the child has 'no awareness of it, because it has no standards of comparison, and it does not complain, and the' parents may be entirely unaware of a gross i nearsightedness or astigmatism, But as soon as It is necessary to distinguish letters and figures the blurring may amount to enough so that confusion is constant..

That opens the question: ".When is the rainy day for which you save?". , •There have been so many cases recently, when people were found dead in filth, nnd poverty and then cash and brink books amounting to many thousands of dollars were discovered hidden in mattresses and bureau drawers. . They wore nil saving for Ihe rainy 'day. These are extremes, of course. should be done with moderation and judgment, Tomorrow is important, but to- day'has its rights too.

Rio Grnndo City, Tex. —<UP>— With the death of Jesse Perez, senior border patrol ollicer, passed one of the most colorful periods of Texas life. Jesse used to run a saloon on the border in the days when the only irial a man usually had \vns a visit at night nnd an admonition to "pit". He went overseas in the first World War, and on his return became one of the hardest riding patrolmen in the border service. During the 1920s, when smuggling was big business and the rule was to shoot first and ask questions later, Perez was given credit for a major part in bringing law to the border. Although he was famous for his skill with a "six-gun," his success lay in the respect which the little people on both sides of the border held for him. The grapevine, brought him information that could not be bought, or forced, and when a wrongdoer learned that Perez wanted him. he usually came in by himself. One of tho N. V.
