Entered a:q second class matter at Brewster, Waahtngton. la i i . i ,i i i i i More Civic Improvement .,,,,,,, ,, , ,,,.. A vote of thanks is due those who are giving their time and labor in working for the improvemerrt of the Locust Grove Cemetery. A benefit dance is being given to aid in raising funds to pay off a note (past due). The First National Bank has held the note for some time and now efforts are being made to take up the paper. We say, "Give those in charge credit for the good work and also give them your whole-hearted support," Hopping On Hoover (Wenatchee World) They' are making attacks on Hoover these days. From one end of the country 'to the other "it is all Hoover's fault." But it remained for Secretary of Agriculture Hyde to call attention to the fact that "it was Woodrow Wilson William G. McAdoo and Carter Glass who granted illegal loans amounting to $2,000,000,000 to Europe AFTElq THE WAR." Added to this, there has been another sum somewhat larger which has been sent to Europe as private loans since the war. We know people of Wenatehee who would like to have some of that money which they loaned in Europe. "Better Get Going, Bill" A boy rode up to a cotton patch near Spring Creek, Teaxs one September evening in 1881 and shouted to an- other ll-year old lad picking cotton, "Hey, Henry, the president is dead." "Who is he?" President James A. Garfield had just been assassinated. The cotton picker was William Henry Murray, better known now by the hem de guerre of Alfalfa Bill. He is conceeded a place in the 1932" Democratic national convemion by his friends. Many say he will be the party,s standard bearer. If so Bill had better get going. Not Worth So iMuch There is always a man who thinks he is worth so much. so we quote the value of the human body, as according to Dr. Thee. E. Lawson, noted British physician. Dr. Law- son says that the average human body is composed of the following: Enough water to fill a 10-gallon barrel; enough fat for 7 bars of soap; carbon enough for 900 lead pencils phosphorous enough to .make 2200 match heads; suffic- ient magnesium for one dose of salts; enough iron to make one medium-sized nail; sufficient lime to white- wash a chicken-coop, and sulphur enough  rid one dog of fleas. All of this at prevailing market prices would amount to 94c. So now, no matter how much this fellow thinks he 'is worth, you know his actual value.

Consequently we may anticipate that the United States will hereafter keel) out of other people's fights. Bu if this nation should be attacked by some other power, is it Mr. Houghton's idea that while the other na- tion is amassing, drilling and transporting troops and otherwise preparing for war, Americans should be hold- ing ,mass meetings and torch light processions to decide whether we are going to defend ourselves? While we are engayg'ed in carrying on that kind of a debate, the war =.would be over, America would be "licked" and there would be nothing left to decide.
