FOXY GREAT BRITAIN The British Lion has long been a foxy gentleman. To outwit him In diplomatic circles is difficult Witness the latest maneuvers of His Majesty s government. Prior to President Roosevelt's forceful declaration about belligerent powers, Great Britain had seemingly been endeavoring to form a diplomatic bloc with France and the United States, In the belief that the three of them could bring enough pressure to crack down on Germany or Italy or Japan. The U. S. with a natural idealism, finally complied and made a frank statement of policy against the warlike nations. But the Ink had hardly dried on Roosevelt's speech as reprinted in newspapers, when Great Britain's diplomats were out making friendly gestures toward Italy. In other words, when the U. S. went out of Its way to take a stand, and possibly alienate good-will and trade with Germany, Italy and Japan, Great Britain immediately saw an opportunity to do itself some business good, and sailed Into the breach. Italy is the only nation that greatly alarms Britain. It threatens to blockade or hamper the TttTellne" of the British Empire from India throu£li the Medlterftnnean. Britain uses France to check- •iate Germany on the one side, and Russia to do the same on the other. But Italy is its real problem. Although there may be many blood ties existing between Great Britain nnd the United States, the mercenary quality of British diplomacy the past few years is enough to mnke any would-be friend continually suspicious of her maneuvering. although the need for new building* Is considerable. And so on and so on—with the result, according to Mr. Bratt, that we may lodk forward to several years of rising prosperity before production of the two kinds of goods gets Out Of balance and Sends us downhill again. All of this is every encouraging—as far as It goes. But must we accept the old depresslon-and-pros- perlty cycle as an Immutable law of nature? Is there no way In which we can avoid these disastrous dips into misery and want? To know that we shan't have a depression for several years is good, but not good enough. It might be a good thing for us to stop thinking about recovery and start thinking about prevention. • • • And Then He Lost His Temper! Northwood Anchor: "You are charged," said the judge, "with beating up of this government inspector," relates the Hutchinson, Minn., Banner. "Whnt have you to say?" "Nothing," replied the grocer.

OUR TEXAS HOMESTEAD One of the editors, and papers, on our exchange list is the Democrat-Voice, edited by H. H. Jackson of Coleman, Texas. Brother Jackson was appointed chairman for his county of n campaign for funds throughout the state, to raise enough money to buy some 700.000 acres of land for Big Bend National Park. In a spirit of brotherly love, we sent him a $1 bill. We now have a receipt to show that we own one acre of ground in the new park. For those who are sick and tired of it all. who long to get away from the trials and tribulations of, JIM world -for a brief Ume, we offer the 11 the picture we saw of our acre In the park Is correct, we can assure anyone that after spending a little tune there, a return to the world in general will be greatly appreciated. FOOTBAIX: Your Odds and Ender hangs his head in shame, as he finds himself making 96 error points on last Saturdays football guesses. His only consolation Is that almost everybody else did nearly as bad. with a few exceptions. Chief trouble with nearly everybody was their failure to call the turn on the Ohio State-Southern California game, and the Notre Dame-Illinois scoreless tie. And Saturday's games, Instead of providing the big scoring sprees everybody looked for, were all nip and tuck. The general error points were larger than either of the two previous weeks. But It was n day of upsets from coast to coast, so don't feel badly. Lyle Reynolds Iftoks as though he might have played football. Whether he did or not, he can sure pick the winners nnd guess the scores. He walked off with first honors with ease, making only 43 error points, calling the turn to the So. Cal. game, with a 7 to 6 guess for the coast team. He picked Purdue at 6 to 0, losing only one point. He picked Iowa over Bradly Tec, 14 to 6, missing by only one point. He picked Notre Dame, 6 to 0, while the rest of us were way off, and he picked Nebraska 13 to 0, which was exactly the margin of victory. His only bad pick was Wisconsin, guessing the Badgers would win, 6 to 0, whereas the score was 27 to 0. Ora Larson took second, place. Although she had enough error points, 3he picked all of 'em right except Notre Dame-Illinois, which nobody picked very close except Reynolds. Her guesses were for larger scores all around, but the first thing to do is guess the winners correctly, then try and get the scores somewhere near right. We'll give Dr. Lee Nugent and Matt Streit a tie for third place this week. Dr. Nugent picked Southern California, but hia scores were wild. Streit only made 68 error points, picked So. Cal. to win, but he upset the apple cart by picking Mich- Thr Other Side of Homefttead Exemption Sac Sun: M. T. Pullen, 88-year-old subcsriber to The Sac Sun who now lives at Spencer, writes the Sun as follows: "I have been paying taxes in Sac county for over 30 yearn. I got too old to work on the farm and had to rent it and move. I Bee in your paper that we do not get any tax refund. There Is nothing fair about it. We old people are still paying th£ taxes. The man who proposed this law and got it to beat the old people out of the refund will not get my vote." There are bound to be some injustices in the operation of such laws as the homestead tax exemption law, and perhaps Mr. Pullen has hit upon one of them. If we were in his place we would probably feel the same way about it. But let's not forget the main purpose of the law was to rmil<e home-ownership more attractive, and indeed, make it possible where otherwise it would be impossible. If the law accomplishes that result, it will indeed offset many disadvantages and objections held against it In other words, the law says to landlords like Mr. 1'ullen: "The man who is venting your farm ought to own it. We're going to make it less attractive for you to own a farm you ilon't live on and mon- attractive fur the i enter to own his own home." Of course there must be landlords. There must be men who will invest in fauns so Unit some farmers who can't own one will have a place to live and make a livinn, just as. we must have hi;; industrialists who build up f.i< lories so th;it men may have jobs. Ami, in spite of this new h.mdii ,>;, placeil a^aio-t absentee landUuds, we winder if the handicaps me any greater than in any otln r investment.

JUST A HOVEL NEW YORK: Traveling from Indianapolis where they campaigned for the local Civic Theatre, Cin- emactress Mary Plckford and Husband Buddy Rogers stepped off a train in New Yorlc Said she: "Buddy and I are planning a new home. . . It won't be as pretentious as Pickfair. Mercy no! One course tennis courts, swimming pool and things like that." DOWN IT GOES- PRESIDENTS POPULARITY NEW YORK: As Franklin Roosevelt sounded out the Northwest last week, revealed in the quarterly survey of "Fortune" magazine was the fact that his popularity and prestige have declined with all classes in all sections of the U. S. since his reelection. Smallest decline is less than one percent in the Southwest; biggest is some 20 percent in the mountain states. Said "Fortune," whose presidential poll last i year differed from actual national election results by less than one percent: "This is the section (Mountain states) through which it is predicted the president will make n disciplinary tour . . . Unless these steps are taken with consummate finesse, it is here, rather than in the South, that the first serious outbreak in Democratic ranks may come." of minutes longer. Jim Murtagh and Jess Reynolds were nip and tuck, failing by scant margins to place. Other contestants making good showings were Chet Williams, with only 59 errors points, but failing to pick the So. Cal. upset. He guessed Purdue to the dot. and Nebraska-Iowa State, 21 to 7. Chet Holt cracked 73; D. D. Monlux, 87; Vic Stell, 90; David Smith 91: Bob Williams 96; Leon Larson of Lone Rock 97; and from Don Mertz at Rockford. 111., 98 error points. None of these picked the Ohio State outcome correctly. Ted Chrlschllles, winner last week, scored 102 this week. Percy Kuhn warned us to get the dollar ready for him; well Percy, yoM erred by 132 points; come again. And consolation honors should go to Edythe Cotton of Lone Rock. She was off 167 points, but better luck next time, and you too, Willis, with 14ti error points.

FROM $295 UP- NEW "XPRK: .Although New open until the end of October, viewed last week by some 10,000 people was Manhattan's first big all-trailer show: 24 trailers ranging from a one-wheel duck hunter's camp to deluxe three-wheelers with bath. Outside the huge armory housing the show stood a shingle- roofed, imitation brick house on wheels too big to trudle through the armory's great doors. Lowest priced completely furnished trailer was the Indian Trailer Corporation's "Papoose" at J295. Sleeping four the 1,250-lb. two- wheeler has atove, heater, ice-box and running water. Top price was $1,580 for the generator-equipped Martin Eck-O with electric refrigeration. Ice cubes, shower, hot and cold running water. Refinements in some 1937 trailers include: chromium-plated bath tuba; porcelain vapor stoves; writing desks; radios, roomy wardrobes, fireplaces. But a trailer la still a trailer, confined by restrictions of various states to a maximum length of about 22 ft. width and height around 7 ft. A "two-room cottage" and a "five- room efficiency" trailer are both bound to be within these measurements. At night the rooms are used for sleeping, by day become dinettes, living rooms, etc. At slight additional expense awnings and folding chairs make a front porch. Show Director A R Hopkins asserts that 1.000000 people live in the T»00,000 trailers of the U. S. In Ohio. Oklahoma, Texas and Wisconsin, there arc trailer dental parlors, x-ray laboratories, class-rooms, sound nictures and traveling theatres to carry modernity to their backwoods districts. Slogan of last week's show was "the trailer is here to stay" and show officials optimistically foresaw the day when cities would pay as much attention to their trailer parks as to their air ports- -would have uas. water, electricity and sewage disposal facilities laid for instant connection to the traili r house -•-o— WAR RISKS LONDON: Lloyd's ami all other consequential British underwriters last week stopped writing "war risk" insurance policies not only for China and Spain but for anywhere on earth. In a joint manifesto the British insurers said they think they have made "a substantial contribution to the cause of world peace", explained that prap- erty owners unable to take out wur risk policies will be forced to start "working for peace," concluded the underwriters: "The wide range of action of modern aircraft has the urea of destruction almost illimitable. Incendiary bombs have increased enormously the potential damage to properly, writing of war risk insurance on land has become in fact little more than a gamble, which plays no part in insurance, where rates are bused on scientific application of the law of averages as ascertained through experience," DUOS UKIVK NEW YOKK: Setting forth from Buenos Aires in his 1926 model T Ford sedan thirty-three months ago slender, wusp-wulntd Miguel Divo of Argentina rattled west toward Santiago, Chile. There turning north, he traversed thirteen countries, jolted through 1935. 1936 and most of 1037, before he landed last week at the front door of New York's Hotel Pennsylvania. Of his 22,000-mile route, one-third is mountain, desert and jungle. Divo gaily took the first 400 miles without "incident" made a pilgrimage to the great bronze frontier statue of the Saviour 13,000 feet above the sea in the Andes, bashed In his radiator crossing Atacama Desert, and burled a companion who died of thirst. As he hacked his way a yard at a time through the jungles of Peru nnd Ecuador, he and two new partners were nearly eaten alive by mosquitoes: when they ran out of^ food Divo shot monkeys. Through the 300 "Impenetrable" miles north from Columbia to the Pannm.1 Canal, guided only by compass. Divo claims to have hacked, ferried, pontooned. even to have taken his Ford to pieces, transported it by mule-back. In Costa Ricn.'s Colorado River n raft sank and for 15 days his car and equipment were at the bottom of the river. Natives who had never seen an automobile wanted tn feed his Ford, tried to tether it at night. In more literate, moneyed centers, Miguel Divo—a magician on the side—raised funds by such stunts a;i glass eating. Joined by his wife, Emma, in Managua, Nicaragua, Divo had a comparatively smooth run from Central America, rolled into Man' hattan with the same six tires with which he had started. Tendered •-banquet ^ tB» fltandard.OU Co. of New New Jersey, which supplied moat of his gas and oil, Divo, obligingly unscrewed a light bulb from the chandelier, smashed it to bits, put the glass in his mouth, took a draught of water. Of his hardships and late companions, Divo piously spoke: "I knew we would not all die because at the mountain top I laid my hands on the feet of the Christ of the Andes for a blessing." to the clinical record he has kept Of the girl's stupor. The front part of Patricia Ma- gulre's brain with which she normally would have done her thinking was withered. A mid-part was scarred by an old Inflammation. Both conditions almost totally destroyed her ability to move her head, eyes, Jaws, tongue, shoulder* hips, legs, knees. The withered frontal lobe proved most Interesting to Northwestern's pathologlsts, for It was not directly affected by the attack of encephalitis letharglda which rendered Oft young woman Inert. Dean Irving Samuel Cutter of Northwestern offered this estplan- atloiwr'The first stages of encephalitis are sleep, paralyzing of certain cranial nerves, general weakness and acute Inflammation chiefly affecting the grey matter In the midbrain region. The secondary effects are inflammation of the Capillaries and lymph spaces in the brain proper, filling the spaces with cell debris and shutting off the brain's nourishment. This causes an atrophy, or sinking and Withering." FLOATING CAMERAMAN OLD ORCHARD, Maine: At Old Orchard Beach, Paramount News Photographer Albert Mlngalone last week hung from a cluster of 30 hydrogen-fllled stratosphere balloons for secret experiments In overhead photography. He had successfully ground out several reels over the local country club golf course, a ground crew towing him from spot to spot, when suddenly a stuff gust snapped the 200-ft. sash- weight cord anchor line. Locker-Boy Thomas Bowman jumped for the trailing fragmant of anchor line, stumbled when he was about to grab it. As Aerial 1st Mingalone rose speedily, so did the alarm of his fellow Camerman Phillip Coolidge and his friend, Rev. James J. Mullen, Old Orchard priest, golfer, aviation enthusiast and expert skeetshooter who was watching the experiment Mtngalone drifted away so rapidly that his ground crew had no time to use a rifle brought along to puncture the balloons In an emergency. With Mingalone disappearing in a rain cloud at 2,500 ft, frantic Cameraman Coolidge and Father Mullen piled into their auto dashed toward Saco where Mingalone seemed to be heading. Two miles from the tafte-off their hopes fort a* they sighted Balloonist Ming- man Mullen jumped from the car, alone scudding along «0 ft. above. Rifleman Mullen jumped from the car, chanced a shot, punctured two of the spheres. To the great renef of the rescue squad, Mingalone settled earthward; hut In an attempt to climb to a ring five feet above his head to saw free some more of the bags, dropped his 12-lb., Bell A Howell camera. Loss of this ballast bobbed him upward and onward again. Twelve miles from the unlucky take-off, thoroughly frightened Father Mullen and Camerman Coolidge caught up with the even more frightened victim, still struggling with his parachute harness as he bounded rapidly along 200 ft. in the air. Father Mullln sprinted Into a cornfield, kneeled, plunked another balloon. That was all the exhausted, dripping Mingalone needed to bring him to earth. "Maybe I couldn't have kissed Father Mullen!" Mingalone wheezed. "All I could think of was 'the curtains' ."
