Your Best Friend-
Look For the Clock
The host friend you will ever have is
your Bank Book. He may be rather
hard to get acquainted with at first,
but after you know him a little while
you will be interested in watching l'!m
grow and develop. In case of trouble
or sickness he is a good fellow to have
around. When an opportunity conieb
for an investment where you can bet
ter yourself and you need some mon

A letter was received yesterday
from Howard Smith, who is in France,
conveying the information that all
soldiers now overseas have been re
quested by their commanders to state
their wishes in the matter of being
sent home or remaining for duty in
that country. He and others of his
company have consented to stay and
it may be a year or more before they
are sent home. The desire to get in
to the enemy country is strong with
the boys of the expeditionary forces,
and while they have a longing for
home, hundreds of thousands will re
main to complete the work of reconstruction.
There is a nice exhibit of paintings
by J. Gardner Scott at the Beale ho

The exhibition includes water colors
of California scenes as well as des

made for '"movie" producers.
Scott is a painter of wide experience
having spent practically all his life
at this work.

I In geology there is no political
j boundry. Geologic formations extend
I beneath frontiers and fortresses, and
I ores and other useful minerals are de
I posited in like manner from continent
I to continent. Accordingly in anti-
cipation that the United States Geolo
I gical Survey (Department of the In-
terior) would be called upon for in
, formation regarding the mineral de
posits and production of countries
other than our own, several of the
1 Geological Survey specialists in the
study of the different kinds of mineral
deposits began last year, as a pre
paredness measure, the compilation of
such data. The results of this work
I more than fulfilled the expectations.
, and the demands for the information
I became so numerous and urgent as to
require that the work be placed in the
hands of a carefully chosen committee,
each member of which is a specialist
i in his subject. Under the direction of
this committee the compilation went
forward in a comprehensive and thor
ough manner. In furnishing such in
formation to the various war organiz
ations the Geological Survey only
more fully performed its work as the
American bureau of informtaion re
garding the geology and mineral re
sources of the world.
I NO OVERCROWDING
Many people are fearful that the1
earth will soon be so crowded by peo
ple that some of the denizens will be
shoved off into space. There is lit-,
tie to be dreaded from that source, as ,
it is estimated that all the people of
the earth could be placed on a space
of ground occupied by Lake Champ-'
lain and give each one three feet of
soil to stand on, and then leave a big
rim of vacant land around them fori
pleasure resorts. The state of Cali
fornia has more level land than Japan,
yet Japan has 48,000,000 inhabitants
on its precipitous island. It is said
that there are miles of that land that
has as yet been unexplored. The peo
ples of the earth could be placed in
the United States and every one could
have a nice little farm.
