THE POOR PUBLIC UTILITIES Every so often we read of some well-paid executive of a public utility company, who sadly relates the tremendous debts of his company, the troubles they have to meet, and the state of their business In general. Maybe we feel sorry for him, and again maybe we check up on the market quotation of his company's stock or dividends paid or something else that would serve as an index to the financial status of the company. And we usually find that public utilities, In fields where they have exclusive monopolies, are doing very well. Chances are the well-paid executive is eating three hearty meals a day, and maybe his children are going away to a private school. That is all well and good; if the money is made honestly, he is ^entitled to spend it as he wilts. But we object to those occasional sob stories, intended to mislead the public as to the state of affairs of most public utility companies. They are not poor, and In most cases they are making a fairly good profit, and sometimes better than good. They have their lobbies In all legislative centers, to watch over their Interests, and they carefully oil the skids where It does the most good. Public utilities play a smart game, and deserve credit for their cunning. But please omit the flowers and the sad talk, boys, we know you're making a go of It, and we also know Old Man Public is paying the bill. THE SWEET AND THE BITTER Evolution and revolution in anything arc remindful of a box of assorted candy. Some of the contents of ttie box are welcomed; others have hard, brittle centers that grate on the nerves and annoy the teeth, or are sticky and unpalatable. The sweet comes with the biter. Conditions are always changing; they always will change. And ways of living, and methods of government must of necessity change accordingly. There is nothing miraculous about that fact. And as conditions change, and methods change, we flnd some of the newer conditions and methods a Joy to behold; others gnaw to the bone, and we detest them. Man's struggle, therefore, evolves Into eliminating the unpleasant conditions and methods and retaining those of which he approves. Not everybody thinks alike, and the opposition between groups is the result. The test of time usually weeds out the bad from the good, separates the wheat from the chaff. Nobody ever proposes anything one hundred per cent perfect, but everyone with new methods or new ideas has a right to be' heard, and occasionally we flnd among the suggestions something worth adopting. Such is the road of progress. TATTOOING THE SOLDIERS A plan has been advanced by an army officer, whereby each enlisted man would be forced to have a tattoo mark stenciled into his body for purposes of identification In case h<? were killed or wounded. Quite an idea. Now if someone would only come forth with n work- chle plan whereby All soldiers wuulcl bo made unnecessary, he or tJie would eajn the undying gratitude of all civilization. It Ls dinicult to under; land how civilized peoples can be such complete jnckas-m ns to get themselves continually embroiled in war. History never seems to have any effect on succeeding generations, w'.io develop into Just bloodthirsty individuals as their predecessors. And wars go en. The United States is the least militaristic of all nations, possibly because in this country we have a more direct chance to determine the policy of our government than any nation In Europe or South America or Asia. Dictators lay the breeding grounds for war; kings have- always considered one or two wars during their reign a fine thing. And in the meantime, whether we want to ar not, we are forced to keep a considerable armament, at great expense to the taxpayer, to insure cur frontiers and frighten away those who night become aggressive. Yes, tatto the soldiers so that we can id. niify them •B the field of battb after the slaughter. Hut in the meantime, in the name of civilization, .striv- to .sell the idea cf peace a.s Miccts.sfuliy as the iiii a of war hu.s been sold through hiitory. STREAMLINING: 1935'S CONTRIBUTION The year 1935, just around the corner, will see the advent of a new era in transportation, experts say, with streamlining uj> the o.ntral theme of the new mode of covering ground. It will be no surprl-e to the child- itn o» today to find themselves riding in trains covering space at 100 to 130 miles an hour, and automobiles will be supping along at 80 to 100 miles without effort. For the railroads, the s.tepi>ed-uii speed may be a salvation. For the autoisU it will mean more t]>ued and more accidents. For the state it will mean a nightmare as u> ways and means of straightening roads, putting in overhead bridges and underpasses, and tndeavoring to meet the new spe:ds. Streamlining has been proved successful. Who knows but what the new farm machinery will have a reduced air resistance, streamlined modeled. And, instead of planning to drive on Sunday into the next county to see Aunt Minnie, we will be able to visit Diicle Oscar in PitUburg, or Cousin Tessie in Mempiiis, provided wt make all the corners.

(.U1J-- tociul suicide. Pastor Describes Task of Violin Making, An Unusual Hobby (By R«v. A. S. Huewr—No. 2) Last week I wrote about the back and breast of the violin. The next step will be the sides or ribs. These are made of hard maple. Six pieces about l-20th of an Inch thick are required. The grain must run lengthwttse. These are bent partly Into shape over a bending Iron. A simple bending Iron can bs made out of two gas pipes. One should be about an Inch through and eight Inches long and the other small enough to fit the Inside of the larger. Th: larger one Is placed in a vise. The smaller one is heated and then placed Into the one in the vise. When the heat has penetrated the outer pipe, we are ready to bend the ribs over It. A little experience Is needed to do this properly. Now we must have either an inside or an outside form. I use the Inside form. We take a solid piece of wood about 1% Inches thick and shape it so that it will fit neatly Inside of these ribs. Around this form we finish shaping the partly bent ribs. They are also ghKd together, during this process. The better violins have six spruce or willow blocks inside that help to keep the glued ends together. At this time something should be said about the neck. It is made of hard maple. The grain runs lengthwise but do not try to discover these lines on the top for they run along the sides. I have carved out only on« and that was due to the fact that I could not obtain one small enough for the quarter tlze violin. The necks can be bought for from one to seven dollars each. The scroll Is usually finished and the rtst left in the rough. Several hours are required to put It in proper condition. The end left in the rough must be cut wedge snap? to a certain size and Inserted Into a groove that is cut In the neck block. This block Is found on the inside glued to the ribs. The neck must be fitted to a certain angle and in a straight line with the center of the breast. The completed ribs with neck may now be slipped off the form' and we are then ready to fit and glue the linings. These are narrow strips of wood glued to the Inside of the ribs evtn with the edges. Without these we cannot expect the violin to remain Intact very long. If our back is completed we are ready to glue it to the bottom of the above mentioned skeleton. Rather thick glue is used to make this union permanent. We need to make further explanation regarding the top f-holes. These will have to be a osrtain size and placed at the proper locations. To ignore this would mean disaster to the quality of the tone. On the inside 1 , a strip of wood 10% inches long Is fitted. Proper size and fitting is absolutely essential. It also has a great deal to do with the power and quality of the tone. After this is glued In We are ready to glue It to our partly finished violin. Fairly thin glue is used, for we never know when some work has to be don? on the Inside, and if the top is glued too lightly, we cannot remove It without doing damage to the instrument. Our violin is now in the "white." How anxious we are to apply the varnish, but wait, we have before us a very painstaking task. Have you noticed the two black lines along the edges of the back and breast of a completed instrument? These are not painted on but are really three ply strips of wood. A white strip between two black ones. Grooves are cut along the edges of the back and breast and then these strips glued in. They are not placed there to improve the tone but to add to the beauty of the Instruments. Next week I shall write about the fittings of the violin and that most Interesting subject, the violin varnish. odds and ends The woman's magazine that has started the campaign to find an ideal man will probably flnd him handsome, young and above all single— but the trouble may be that he will be broke. • * • If the Rotary and KlwanU footba,"] came should materialize into something more tangible than verbal discussion, a record crowd would be in attendance- without a doubt . . . and drug: stores wculd have a «uper- demand for liniment. • • • STATE OF THE UNION Chattanooga, Tenn., The Church of God turned thumbs down on permanent wav^s for women and disapproved of the handling of snakes In the pulpit at a session here. • * • "Dizzy" Dean and several other baseball players who might have trouble deciphering an adverb from a comma, ore writing articles for the newspapers.
