Running races drew about 11 million customers and harness races about 8 million. Q. Hfts the American chestnut been extr/rmihated? B. T. C. A. Alt'.iough the American chestnut was almost exterminated by the chestnut blight, it is not quite 6^ tinct In the east, and with irtctefls- eventu- !- Cu/?/ous WORLD T"\-_ ••!**• ,, * * « .. ., ~ During its first two and one-half years, the Govern- it's spending program was hit and miss. Ehiphasis was placed on Public Works' Administration Q. Does noise impair the efficiency of office workers? O. C. S. A. Engineers and efficiency experts have estimated that, in "office ^projects, which gave little direct employment and involv-' wol £' efficipn( ? * s im P, alre d as much 60 per cent of the WPA dollar went for other things the scientific mime for the noise Sthan direct labor. z Then there was a shot of heavy spending under CWA glate in 1933 and early in 1934. But about the time this ^spending had filtered through the business system it was ^Stopped. ^Effects of the WPA jj Now in WPA, with its 3,000,000 jobs paying a cash ff wage comparable with that paid Jby private industry, *jthe spending theorists think that they have the mechanism for getting purchasing .power into circulation on a Abroad base. They believe that it accounts for the sustain*ed level of trade. Through the WPA mechanism about nf200,000,000 a month is going into the pockets of more rithan 3,000,000 families. 3 A further shot in the economic arm of the country J-comes now with cashing of bonus bonds. More than 3,000,- aOOO veterans will receive an average of nearly $575 each £and all signs suggest that this money is going quickly into sthe stream of purchasing power. S 'The same is true of $300,000,000 moving out to about ^3,000,000 farmers, giving each of them $100 on an aver- fage, for immediate use. 3 The present large injections of purchasing power come sat a time when the pressure of deflation is eased and ;when debts have been adjusted sufficiently so that the jcash that goes out can be used to buy goods and start j;a cycle of circulation. ; UNCLE SAM, HOST TO VACATIONIST » With vacation-time just around the corner—your JUncle Sam reveals himself in a new role—that of No. i 'Vacation Guide and Travel Agent. , Through the winter and spring months dozens of his ^bureaus have been making preparations for that season •of the year which spells recreation to millions. ; Although the National Park Service is commonly jknown as the "official out-door host" for the nation, there |are. many old-line and emergency agencies whose work 'blends with the purpose of providing attractive vacations {for the American people. I This summer for the first time will see the network of jvacation camps spread over 24 States—all within reach jof some 30,000,000 metropolitan folk. Inexpensive as they •are hospitable—they are all within a half day's round -.trip from urban centers. • More than $12,000,000 has gone into the making of ithese recreational areas, part of the land utilization pro- jgram of the Resettlement Administration. ! Tying in - with this comparatively new approach to jFederal recreation is a network of playgrounds, swim- jming pools and sport centers, financed in whole or part jby the Public Works Administration and the Works Prog- jrtss Administration. ; The WPA's recreational program works in a unique iway: Not only-are the play-facilities provided, but with the professional service project, instructors ranging from •expert swimmers to arts and crafts teachers are employed 'to guide adults as well as children along the leisure road. , Out of the hinterlands the Civilian Conservation Corps has boosted the value of the nation's scenic sights. In Addition thousands of miles of roadside trails have been constructed for the hikers. In this work the Corps has been aided by the Department of Agriculture's Forest Service and engineers from the War Department. ':'• For the hunter—the Biological Survey has added to <$e depleted stocks of wild life and migratory birds. For ijlie fisherman—the Bureau of Fisheries with its scores of hatcheries has stocked streams and lakes with species that fight the line or (for the benefit of those who like to laze) just snap at bait. Of course transportation is the key to the whole vacation scene. And once again your Unple Sam is in the Picture. With the coming of Summer railroads and buses <$fer attractive vacation rates. This summer, however, qn added inducement is the Interstate Commerce Commission order bringing rail rates down to a striking "low." This summer, too, will find a greater number of rail- toads air-conditioned. With air-conditioning has come a general improvement in traveler aids—from reclining coach chairs to miniature bars. . With motor travel constantly increasing, Congress has seen fit to make new provisions for road construction. One section of the Hayden-Cartwright Act amending the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1916 would authorize appropriations of $20,000,000 for each of the fiscal'years (1938 and 1939 to be used in the construction of forest highways, roads and trails. '•' Accommodation services for tourists and travelers throyghout Uncle Sam's vacation-land are carefully sup- eryjsed by Federal inspectors—from the initial construc- ¥<"*,<« the guest-quarters to the rates charged, Some qi the camps and hotels are operated djrectly by the government itself. Facilities range from luxurious hotels Wjejhe PWA's modernized "Bluebeard's Castle" in the Virgin Islands to "wayside" cabins for overnight pic- unit, has been worked out. Q. What is the meaning of Akron, the Ohio alty? R. L. A. The rtame Akron is a Greek word, mean summit. Q. How many children attended the School Patrol convention in Washington, D. C.? W. H. A. Eight thousand boys and girls from 16 states look part in the annual safety patrol demonstration. Q. Is It true that woiiien arc being: selected as teievisidn announcers in England? if so, what arc the qualifications? E. G". A. Young women have besn chosen' by the British television servleo as announcers.- Good looks and low pitched, well modulated voice.* are essential. They must also be' able to act as hostesses. The first two appointees were selected frbm ovel- one thousand applicants. Q. "fe it dangerous to drink milk when, eating chei'rles? M. T. A. The cherry* contains less acid thaVi normal digestive juice sb' tliei-e is ho reason why moderate amourits of these foods cannot be eaten together by a healthy person, q. Who was Peeping Tdth? 1 E: J: H. A. Peeping Tom was a tfailbr of Coventry, said to be the only person in the town who peeped at Lady Godiva as she rode naked through 1 the streets to relieve the people from oppression. Q. To whom is Marguerite Clark, former stage and screen star, married? E. L. G. A. she is the widow of Harry P. Williams, airplane builder and lumberman, who was killed in an all'- plane crash this summer. Q. What are the pHmavy emotions? W. H. O. A. The Public Health Service says that physicians recognize three principal or primary emotions in hurtuav beings—those of love, feal', and' hate. All other human emotions are regarded as modifications of these three. Q. Are there any true wild horses in the world today? J. L. B. A. The only true wild horse known today is the Przewalski's horse, named after the Russian explorer to whom was presented in 1879 the first specimen known to science. This small horse lives in herds of five to fifteen head in western Mongolia. Q, How many V nickels were issued without the word "cents"? D. O. A. The Office of the Director of the Mint says that the 5-cent pieces dated 1883 were made omitting the word "cents" as it was thought that the numeral "V" was very distinct. Afterwards it was decided to add the word "cents" in order to make the coin more easily identified as a 5-cent piece. There were 5,479 of these coins issued without the word "cents.." Q. What is the origin of the term jubilee? K. M. C. A. It is from the Hebrew word jobel or yobel, which means a ram or ram's horn, and. by extension the blast of a trumpet. According lo the- Jewish law, the year following each seventh Sabbatical year was to be announced by the sound of trumpets on the Day of Atonement as a year of remission and universal pardon. The year Of Jubilee occurred, therefore, once in every 50 years. Q. What is known as the American Bayreutli? H. R. T. A. The annual music festival celebrated at Bethlehem, Pa., is sometimes so called. • Q.' When is the coronation day of King Edward VIII? J. T. A. The date has been announced as May 13, 1S37. IF- THE.

Most successful Broadway press-agents either become producers or authors—at least, a resume of the currently active ones indicates as much. . . For instance: Ray Henderson, who handles tho affairs of Katharine Cornell, has written any number of musical hits. . . . Russel Crouse, who directs public relations for the Theatre Guild, has authored several Important shows and has a, new one coming out thi.s fall. Willie Morris, the singer, Is a girl. . . . Arthur Byron, the actor, is a nephew of Ada Rehan, who won fame on the English stage 50 years ago as Lady Teazle in "The School For Scandal." . . . There's been a revival of interest in the printed versions of all Shaw plays, dus no doubt to the recent Uocal) revival of "St. Joan." At least three of the Shaw comedies have been re- issusd by his publishers. .. An interested spectator at "St. Joan" recently was The First Lady, who came up from Washington just to' see the play. . . Ernst Lubltsch, the director, is slight, dark, and extremely energetic. . . He seldom relaxes. They say Jean Hsrlow has a photographic memory for names. . . If she talks'with you five minutes she will remember you and be able to call your name five yea'rs later. . . j t Warner Baxter is another who al ways remembers.

Latest of the hilarious Rose tales concerns his six-gun -experiences down in the Lone Star State. . Rigging himself Up a la Billy the Kid, Rose was intrigued to learn that the pistol strapped to-his side was the gun once used by a famous killer. "The man who used it never lost a duel," he was" told, "anc that is a good omen. Neither will you ever lose one." "You mean," Rose exploded, "there is a heritage of success 01 failure to the man who wears these old clothes?' 1 "That's right," he was told. "Then for Holy Cats, let me get out of this shirt," gasped the horrified Billy. There was an old bullet hole in the shirt—directly over the heart.

Name Street City . State (Mail to Washington. D. O.) BY PRESTON GKOVER. WASHINGTON—Some of the democrats who usually fall heir to the job of writing the party platform are disturbed by their task this year. They believe that the platform, regardless of what it says; will be supercfided by the issues President Roosevelt (they concede his nomination, of course) raises in his speeches. . Debates iii congress and comment elsewhere would indicate not all democrats are in favor of certain measures and policies that must be defended in the platform. Notable among those that have come in for critical comment are the reciprocal trade act, large governmental ex- pepditures and centralization of gov^ eminent. (Democrats fear the republicans will call it bureaucratic government.) These three, together With the unemployment problem, are listed by capital politicians as the spots in the administration armor the republicans will hit hardest. Longer '1'lraii in '88.'

We pride ourselves on practical methods of education. Many schools and colleges do their best to bring the student in touch with real life. The classes visit factories, the centers of local government and business, the plants of the various public utilities. But in spite of it all, the average child leaves school with comparatively little real knowledge of the world in which he lives. The eastern child knows wheat only in the term's of the bread he eats. The western farm boy has no real , conception of the sea. The southerner canhbt understand the problems of the northerner, and the west coast knows little of the crowded conditions of industrialism. Why should not summer vaca- ions and the old car be an oppor- unity for a little interstate sight seeing? Sam's interest in social science will be greatly improved if he can discuss some of the subjects from the point of view of one who has seen, as well fts one who has heard or read. The Revolutionary and Civil wars will be much more real to the youngsters who have visited some of the Battle fields. If the vacation period is long enough, there might be time to see a glacier or watch B hydraulic power plant being btrtlt. Niagara Falls is one of tfir wonders of the world; there are mountains in this country as high ns the Alps. Beaches are crowded, hotels and boarding-houses filled to capacity all summer with families, who, unable to afford formal, train and ocean travel, forget that with no more expense thnn they are putting out in board and lodging or summer rental, they could be wandering over the country by car, giving the children as well as themselves the broadening Influence of travel.
