This is a legislature wth only 1 one house. Instead of the tradition • al "House” and "Senate” Nebras ka this year began to put all its i 1 . i • 11. ic&iMaujrs mtv unc iwm *nu them work out the state’s problems ! | without having to-get the approval i c some other bunch, i The new idea seems to have 1 i caught the fancy of political refor j mers. Seven of eight other states are | reported to be considering consti- j tutional amendments to eliminate . one branch of their bi-cameral leg- ' islatures. And when anybody asks "why not?” it is difficult to think ; up a convincing 'reason why two I branches of a legislature are better . than one. ■ There is nothing particularly f sacred in a two-barrelled legislative I body. Most of the states which have i them simply copied the set-up jthe United States Congress. In the ? beginning there were good reasons 1 ; for dividing Congress into two de- 1 : partments to check each other. The 1 House of Representatives was sup- 1 j posed to represent ’ the common 1 people and the Senate stood for < **t*A nfAnAfttr Hut witK M j change in the methbd of electing i [Senators, the old distinction has 1 [vanished, and it is not easy to think ' !of any good reason why one of the J two houses of Congress itself ( should not be abolished. < The idea of two branches of leg- < islative bodies harks back to the time when there were two or more 1 distinct and recognized classes of : people, with opposing interests. The < British Parliament is an example; i but so many privileges have been taken, one by one, from the House of Lords, that it counts now for nothing. It hasen’t even the power to vote any measure adopted by the Commons. That is as it should be in a dem ocracy. Where there is only one class of people, what need is there for two classes of lawmakers? _ I THE AIR PILOT’S RESPONSIBILITY TTao cti erocciAn airplane accidents in which the pi lots of commercial planes were tak ing their direction guidance from Government radio beams, brings up the question how far navigation can safely be controlled by orders and rules which, if they do not ac tually deprive the pilot of author ity, at least give him an "out” if anything happens when he is flying by rule. 'i If there is one position in which the highest degree of technical skill should be coupled with the fullest personal responsibility, it would seem to be that of the commanding officer of a passenger airplane. Up- , on his indivdual ablity to think clearly and act quickly in emergen cies depend the lives of his passen- i gers. He should not be required to i take orders from the ground, yet i the tendency is increasing to de- ; prive air pilots of authority to use : their own judgment, and compel 1 them to follow rules and orders which may or may not be appro- < priate at the moment. < All of the aids to navigation, for i ships at sea and ships of the air, are t On the Qasoline Qircidt-— by A. b. chapin THE MIGHT YOU SWIPED OAD& CAsT^ lb TAKE HER 10 ike JUMioa i*wcej§ Amp you skidded — AMP SMACKED A WHEEL—.

I happened to be chatting vith my host, while he was shav ng, and I noticed how careful he vas to use very little water. "It seems sort of silly for you o be so conscientious,” I remarked 'They don’t make any difference n the final result,” he said, "but hey make a lot of difference to ne.” He said that when he graduated :rom college, a quarter of a cen :ury ago, there was a great deal of popular emphasis upon so-called 'social-service.” Science had begun :o introduce wonderful new inven :ions for increasing human happi less. Men were stirred by the hope >t a quick: muienium. ioung peo >le graduated with the notion that i few years of earnest effort would ransform the world. My friend was one of the most ager reformers. He organized, and roted, and agitated, and did all the hings that he should. But nothing lappened. The good causes for vhich he cast his vote were de bated. Human nature showed a liscouraging unwillingness to :hange. "I went through a period if deep disillusionment,” he said. 'I thought to myself, what’s the lse of doing anything when one’s ingle effort seems so futile? One IsT in fine rnfwl T rlic :overed these words of Socrates: 'I, therefore . . . consider how I nay exhibit my soul before the udge in a healthy condition. Whereas, disregarding the honors :hat most men value, and looking :o the truth, I shall endeavor in -eality to live as virtuously as T :an; and when I die, to die so. And t invite all other men, to the ut- 1 nost of my power; ... to this :ontest, which, I affirm, surpasses ill contests here.’ "That flashed across mv mind ike a bolt of lightning,” my ■verything. I realized that I am not :riend continued. "It clarified ev •esponsible for the success or fail ire of any good cause. All I am •esponsible for is my own best ef ort in that cause. Whether my Tote be effective or not; whether :he amount of water I can save _ _ _ ire not the questions. "The only question is: Am I loing my best? * * * THIS CAN’T BE THE GOAL I remember the Christmas when ny father presented me my first vatch—a big silver affair that he limself had carried for years. I wa» en years old, and the gift amazed iseful only if regarded as emergen :y devices. When commanders get he habit of relying upon them, in tead of upon their own technical kill and judgment, they tend to >ecome machines instead of men. No set of rules, no mechanical j levices or electrical gadgets, can ver take the place of trained, hu nan intelligence, and that is par icularly the case in flying., me. It had never occured to me that I should ever own a watch un til I was twenty-one. I remember how my wife and I saved up patiently to buy our first car—a second-hand Ford. I re member our first antique, which we loved for months before we could finally acquire it. And the joy of seeing a savings account grow slowly; and the thrill of building a library, one book at a time. Now the kids smash up a dozen watches before they are six. And they start life with cars, and with furniture; and at twenty they have rushed through all the emotional experiences that lasted us leisurely through forty years. Don’t mistake me. I am a boost er for the new generation. They are healthy, direct, and fine. Only sometimes I wonder— I wonder when, on my way home at night, I pass a big house in which lives one of New Yerk’s famsus neurologists. It’s an expen sive house, paid for by nerves. Limousines are always stacked up in front of it. It would seem almost as if the prize of life in America is to own a limousine anl park it in front of a nerve specialist’s door.

Let me offer a few valuable hints, drawn from long observation. Some time ago I sat in a busy hotel in the delightful region of the Missouri Ozark Mountains. The large lobby was artistically dimmed by shaded lamps—daytime mind you—until the great room gave one the impression of being in moonlight! Outside the light was perfect, scintillating with vio iet rays. Inside, the guests huddled here and there, trying to read news papers by dim, ineffectual light by the heavily-shaded lamps. I was one of the guests. I had difficulty finding a spot light enough to en able me to read. It is fashionable to light homes in that manner; floor lamps with beautiful shades adorn living rooms Here children try to search out les sons and news from printed pages. They strain young, growing eyes i • 1 1 • i lu uccipucr liic intelligence prni lcu on the page. Daddy may have the best lighted seat in his favorite rocker; mother next. Children on the outskirts, do their best to read with ease to their eyes, but soon tire, and, finally are driven to bed, tired and sleepy from the dim read ing-light. But it is fashionable—the twi light effect in softened light. I see it in many homes, and I must con fess, sheepishly, that my own liv ing room is lighted just that way— I am telling tales out of school. But, "an honest confession”—you know. The best artificial light is that which approaches most nearly to daylight. Ground-glass globes, not muffled down to dimness, and not poised too near the eyes—-the light coming over the shoulder, is best for young eyes. Parents should by all means be careful of the child ren’s study. Poorly Nourished Women —• They Just Can’t Hold Up Are you getting proper nourishment from your food, and restful sleep? A poorly nourished body Just can’t hold up. And as for that run-down feeling, that nervous fatigue, — don't neg lect it! Cardui, for lack of appetite, , poor digestion and nervous fatigue, has been recom mended by mothers to daugh ters — women to women — for over fifty years. Try it!

But whatever I do, just between you and me, To be happy, successful and free Here’s all that I need—just a short little creed— I believe—I believe in me.” Just to have confidence in your self is immense, Just a feeling of—"I know I can”— Puts a spring in your step, gives you abundance of pep, 1 Makes a difference—ask any man. For without this belief your at tack will be brief, You will fail when you ought to succeed; So to make for success—and you wish for no less— i _. ... relieve in tms snort nttie creea. If you think you will fail, that’s the end of the trail, As you think in your hearc, so j are you. If you think you’ll succeed, that’*: all that you need, If you follow your program right through. Oh belief, that’s the thing—as you work you can sing, For you’re confident, that’s how to be. You’ll be happy and bright, in you you’ll delight, When you say, "I believe in me.” Take a mirror some day, look right in it, then say— "Just size up the man that you see. Do you think I can win? If he nods with a grin, Then he’s with you, successful vou’ll be. But if he droops his eyes, and he just kind of sighs, Then you’re licked, for with him you’ve agreed. For the man in this case, whom you looked in the face, Can cause you to fail or succeed. When the man in the mirror who gazes at you Is with you one hdndred per cent There isn’t a thing that you can’t go and do, Beneath this entire firmament. So talk to him, plead with him, get down and pray, That he’ll be what you want him i to be. i And then when you look in his eyes < you can say— Thank God—I believe in me.

It is estimated at $3,365,000,000 for next fiscal year. Next largest is liquor and beer tax, rising as people are drink ing more and calculated to yield $644,000,000 in next year. Tobacco and cigarettes tax come next as a source of income. People are smoking more and will pay $569,000,000 taxes on their smokes. Customs duties are rising as we import more goods from abroad, are counted on for $463, 000,000; manufacturers’ excise taxes are looked to for $448,000, 000; while estate taxes are set down as probably yielding $464, 000,000 through that is necessarily guesswork.

The forecast is made at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, lowever, that some substitute for N. R.
