He did in 1932 cover into Civil SCIM'CC all of the posts in the Duieau of Foieign and Domestic Commence, which had been exempt fioni competitive examination. Three or four hundred deserving Republicans, the salaries r u n n i n g up as high as §7500 a year, woio thus taken care of. Just a month before he relinquished his office, President Hoover discovered that a large number of people in the Department of Ju=ticc, running fiom laborers and messengers up to examiners and other high posts, had not been subject to competitive examination and he thereupon issued an Executive Older putting all of these into Civil Service. For eight years previous to this time, the Civil Service Commission was asking persistently j for the changes. Duiing all his term j as Secretary of Commerce, he had been oblivious to the pleas from the 'Civil Service Commission as to his ,own subordinates in his depaitment.

Another of the incidents of the Roosevelt administration that horrifies the ex-President is that Messrs. Harry Hopkins and Aubrey Williams directing WPA activities mentioned (that they agreed with the President in regal d to certain Democratic can- J Sidacies. Now, I just wonder if any of the officeholders under President Hoover ever expressed agreement with the chief's political opinions. It seems thatxPostmasler General Btown, Secretaiy of War Hurley and unnumbered others of the Hoover regime, not only participated actively in politics but were conspicuous figuies in the Republican national convention of 1932 that rcnominated Herbert Hoover for the Presidency. Big Republican Money Is O. K. One moie source of distress to the ex-President is that eome corpoiation oiTicials aided the Democratic National Committee in discharging its campaign debts. According to the report filed with Congress there was For Thanks to the navy, America's clocks are kept on time. At the naval observatory in Washington is the "X" which marks the spot of zero longitude and zero .latitude for all official measurement in the United States. Twenty times daily, tiir.s signals are broadcast from the observatory. DISPELLING THE FOG Have you ever noticed that, according to the doctrines now being preached by the minority .party spokesmen, if something is done by a Republican it is u praiseworthy, patriotic, effective and efficient performance, but if the same thing is done under Democratic auspices, it is subversive, destructive of American institutions and an unfailing index of President Roosevelt's desire to attain dictatorial poivers over our government? In a recent speech, President Hoover does a lot of mourning and bemoaning over his successor's placing a large number of government employees under Civil Service. The Pejo attitude in regard to this is that it is intended merely to perpetuate Democrats in office. To use the language of Senator Vandenberg, it was a "political coup d'etat in the name of civil service" and the Ramspeck bill providing Civil Service reform could more accurately be termed a "bill to provide easy chairs for life for deserving democrat]?," Now, if the policy of extending Civil Service, which is so strenuously voiced by Senator Vandenberg, by Mr. Hoover, and by all the other candidates for the Republican presidential nomination in 1940 means anything, they should applaud rather than deprecate the present moves in that direction. Obviously, the change in the Civil Seivice law.3 must be made under some administration, either Democratic or Republican. Obviously, under either of these administrations the jobholders will be more numerously members of the party in power than of the party out of power. So how is the reform to be instituted without temporarily at least favoring one side or the other? Well, of Course? It Was Different Then Mr. Hoover had four years in which to effect the changes he now advocates so ardently. He didn't do anything much about the Civil Service until after the portents of the Presidential election in 1932 told him that his own term of office would terminate on March fourth of the next State's Attorney and Qualified county: Voters of Caroline LaymanJ.Redden (Pol.

HOME BUILDING IS NEWS In a recent is.sue, the magazine Life published a handsome housnr: poit folio that .should come us "news" lo millions of American families. The purpo-e of the poitfolio is to point out tliut these families can build and buy far butter homes t h a n they now lent without increasing t h e i r housing budgets, with the aid ol modern constiuetion methods and long-time, low-inteicst moitgage loans. Life doeq not simply i l l u liate .1 vaiifty of homes, with dry-as-d\i-,t statistics concerning costs. Instead it takes four actual familie- , one each in the $2,000, $.1,000, $5,000 and $10,000 income groups, and discusses their housing needs, wants and ambitions. As it s.tyn, it "invited them to make their individual housing pioblems a laboratory test tube." | In pursuing this idea, it ietaine,l eight of Ameiica's foiemost architects to design actual hou-cs for these families. Two architects were as-1 signed to ouch income level--one to j plan a modern house, the other an up-to-date traditional house. It i s ' pointed out that building costs in 1938 average a full ten per cent below 192G--and that it is possible, for (he same amount, to build a far more efficient, attractive and livable home than jou could build ten or twelve jcars ago.
