STEHL1KG DAILY 0AZBTT1, 8TBRUHG. ILLIKOI8, i U8O. Thuf, slackness on the job lis distinct.!? up to th« ! ment. Sterling Daily Gazette P. F Grand on. Omrral ^53^ag?-^ D \V. Grandon. A^sfX-iatr Turn to rornlc psse for s-.i information Th« Sterhne Communists in Capital Representative Dirs, rhainnan of the committpe on un-American activities, has sent to Attorney General Biddlr a list of 1,124 name*, at Icrlrral employes alleged to be Communist' or affiliates of subversive organizations. Mr. Blddlc requested the list. Two yeais neo Mr. Dies made public a list of 563 federal employes whom he declared were members of the American Leauue for Peace and Democracy which Mr. Dies said was a "front organization" for the Communist party. This time Mr. Dies did not ifiak* the names public, but. some of those included are known to be In the $10,000 * year class. Two years ago some of the p«rsona whose names were pub- 'llshed said they did not know the fcind of an organization they had Joined. That may be true now. Mr. Blddle undoubtedly will do his own 'Investigating of the names handed hlni but Mr Dies' investigations usually have been rather thorough. Sometimes they have been embarrassing His report on Japanese activities on the west coast has been held up at presidential request. Why the government should have so many in Its employ In Important departments whose loyalty to thli government is questionable 1« a mystery. If *' ^ir._ Blddle finds that Mr. Dies I is only partially right there may I tw : Mme hesitancy in cleaning bouse because of present war r«- latlons, but the sooner it is done the better for it now has been planted in many minds that all Is not well In Washington. Cutting Things Down After all, it might not be a bad plan if the government did issue some drastic regulations. For, getting down to brass tacks, a bit of dieting wouldn^ hurt any of us. Many people still recall the strict regulations of the World -War tra — Hoover bread, whote wheat (lour, less t.ugajr, TfShf o"Fus was the worse for U» diet; fcr f act, U h«U»d a -lot «C ptopl* who wen living too la*, mn.thpuft* it didn't en- Mr. Hoover's popularity. '• A ftw gasless Sundays might tasw the paunch off from « lot pf overweight chap* by making tb<im walk ah, extra block or twp. Wltoie wheat or graham bread i$n*t_m half bad diet* and soybean floor bakes into excellent bread. Those of us who are too proud to eat cornmeal might come down to it and like it, just as toe like the various other substitutes for the epicurean diet the majority of us are stuffing Into our gullets. _ r Why Th. Delay? News dispatches say Justic* Samuel Roscnmao Is making a purvey of housing agencies for tht President, the Intention be- Inf to end the confusion arising overlapping authority. One the matter may be com- tof to a head now is the delay to erecting clubhouses for the Voice Of The Fress THE DISTRICT OAR TAX State Journal' Raymond S.

Portions of these appropriations annually aie expended upon object* toward which an adequate end just tax Miould be applied. Mich «s the repair and upk«r> of the streets which usually «re in disreputable condition. All of thl« and much. more IB true with respect to taxation In Washington. Its syatem is unequi- table, antiquated and Ineffective, working at all times In favor of those who enjoy the advantage* of residence in the capital and should bear a h«vl*r burden. Despite frequent oulbuiaU against these inequities, nothing hes been done to modernlM the taxation system in th« district. No congressman is nufliclently interested to knuckle down to th£ gruelling task of solving the problems that Washington endures as the nation's,, capital, beholden to congress for everything It needs, which refuses to act or does the wrong thing, if it does act. The dumbest exhibition of impotence and Jncompetency in government la the District of Columbia. There, great wealth, luxurious living, political and Industrial power, barbarian architecture and grandiose landscaped dUUnces, stand fnoe to face with scandalous police paralysis, ab)ect poverty, humiliating public welfare services, broken down, disreputable institutions, the most blighted housing area in the United Stales, the alley settlements, the Negro's cabin town*, the poor whites' hovels, all under the shadow of the magnificent, danllng white capitol.

Maudie and I managed to give each other enough courage to go back to bed. But first we searched the house, tiled the windows Bfid door.";, and locked everything securely after looking «t our Jew valuables. Nothing luul been disturbed.

Remembering th* hagiiarcl. drawn look on Maudie.'c lace when she came in after finding Miss Millie, I hated to scare her again.
