For the printing of the daily publication, a Whit lock "pony" press, shipped to Red Lodge from St. Paul, Minn., was set up last week and was put in operation for the first time Tues day.

Scholes. It is estimated that 12,000 deaths occur each year in the United States as the result of bronchitis and its complications. So the com mon cold stands well up in the list of the causes of death and should be taken more seriously than it usually is. While colds ai'e due to infection, there ai'e certain other factors which seem to act as predisposing causes. Among these ai'e prolong ed exposure to cold, getting wet and chilled, and breathing air that ! is too dry, ovex-heated or impure. During the changeable weather of fall and spring, and during those seasons when we spend much time indoors, colds are most prevalent. Efforts at prevention should be gin dui'ing the fall and should in clude measures to protect ourselves against unfavorable weather con ditions as well as take care to make indoor conditions as health ful as possible. Unless the weath er is too disagreeable, spending as much time as possible out-of-doors in the fall, winter and spring helps to harden one and increase his re sistance. But dress for it! Right Clothing Important. By shivering through a cold fall afternoon while you are watching a football game you probably lower your resistance instead of raising it. You should wear an overcoat or sufficient wraps. Over dressing while indoors also makes you more susceptible to a chilling when you go out into the cold air. Remove your overcoat or out door wraps while you are attend ing indoor amusements or athletic contests. Good Ventilation Necessary. Houses and buildings should be Well ventilated and comfortably warm, and thç ait should contain sufficient moisture. Much can be ddhè to prevent spreading thë germs of colds and pneUttlOhih by covering the nose and mouth with a handkerchief when it is necessary to sneeze or cough. All of this is old, but it should be recalled at the time of year when colds and pneumonia begin to be more prevalent.

In 1918 he released his interests in both the Promoter and the Progressive, to acquire control of the Valley Coun ty News of Glasgow. This news paper he turned over to the man agement of J. Dolan, who moved the plant to Red Lodge to begin publication of the Carbon County Chronicle, March 17, 1924. The Chronicle did not prosper, how ever, and Mr. Shelley came to Red Lodge, Oct. 13. 1931, with the in tention of selling the paper. Impressed with the community to continue its publication, reor ganizing it as the Carbon County News. and its possibilities he remained seven years, the broken-down news paper that was the Chronicle has been rated among the best in the state. Mr. Shelley, as editor of the News, has recently been elected to a membership in the Associated Press. Much of the time since 1924, Mr. Shelley has spent in Washington, endeavoring to secure passage of the bill that authorized the Red Lodge-Cooke road. During his ab sence the News was under the management of his son, E. B. Shelley, who is to be active man ager of the Red Lodge Daily News.

Washington Snapshots Taken by the Helms News Service During its recess there are al ways calls upon the President to summon Congress in extra session. These requests come from interests conceiving that they face a na tional emergency, from members of Congress with special purposes and from political friends and foes. The instinct of a President is to deny such appeals, and especially in recent years business has warmly approved of this attitude. Not until lately has any one de vised a method of consulting Con gress on a proposed move of na tional importance when Congress is in recess. President Herbert Hoover has presented a carefuly prepared and at the same time a bold plan for unified action to preserve the banks and restore confidence throughout the country. His plan calls both for action by the bank ers themselves and for legislation by the Federal Congress. Today, with the concurrence in his pro posals of bankers and congres sional leaders, the prospect of translating the plan into action appears bright in the extreme. * ♦ The White House was the scene of intense activity as President Hoover received the leaders of the Senate and the House of Repre sentatives, together with the fi nancial advisers of his own Ad ministration, to consider the eco nomic problem of the goveimment. Probably at no time since the days immediately following the World war has the picturesque mansion on Pennsylvania Avenue witnessed more stirring moments than those attending the arrival of Mr. Hoo ver's bi-partisan conferees. * One of the most ironical spec tacles that have been presented to the American people in recent RED CROSS (Continued from page 1) tubes had been cut to shoe lengths and tied to old shoe tops with strong cord.

When found by Red Cross field workers, the family was in dire need with out food.

Com munism, under which factories have been confiscated by a clique of dictators and men are forcer! to work at starvation wages, is an athema to the people of this coun try. Yet the War Department was found patronizing Communist in dustry while American match fac tories and their employes remained idle. comnxxs As the time for the convening of the Seventy-third Congress ap proaches, the chances that the Democrats will elect the Speaker increase. The whole drift is in that direction. For example, va rious Republican organs and jour nalistic spokesmen are in striking agreement that the special elec tion in Missouri, in which a Demo crat achieved an overpowering vic tory, makes this reasonably cer tain. As things stand now, the House membership is divided as follows: Republicans, 214; Demo crats, 214; Farm-Labor, 1. The thing is really thrilling close, with various exciting potentialities, ex plosive possibilities and a not un menacing aspect. * One thing that has contributed to the spontaneous demand among many Democrats for Newton D. Baker for President, is the favor, for example, with which he is re garded among Democratic editors; the increasing feeling that the lution of this country's problems is going to depend upon an understanding of international relations. The boom for Owen D. Young sprang from a belief that he was pecularly qualified by perience to deal with a world eri The Democrats who turned first to Young now turn to Bakei. It will be recalled that Mr. Baker was the first public man of prom inence in this countx-y who had the foresight to point out the dom of this country's collection policy. so economic ex sis. unwis war-debt »I« in preferring Ex-Secretary of War Newton D. Bakei', of Ohio, for Vice President, Governor Roo sevelt aims high. Mr. Baker is a very distinguished man. He is of presidential size himself. In fact, he is just now next to Mr. Roose velt the leading candidate for the Democratic nomination. It would be interesting to know just how you approach a man who has x'ea sonable hopes of being nominated for President and offer him see ond place on the ticket with you. It would be a situation of gi'eat delicacy. It is a safe bet that if the offer was made, Mr. Baker did not enter into a contract under his own second place. seal and signature to take; * The death of Dwight W.

Although Mr. Mor, row's entry into public life be gan only four years ago, he widely recognized as one of Amer "most statesmen, wise in council .nd steadfast in purpose. His first important public service, as Ambassador to Mexico, was sig nally successful and resulted in the adjustment of differences with that country which had been istent for years. His position diplomat was thereby established. When President Hoover was elect ed Chief Executive many friends of Mr. Morrow believed that he should be chosen Secretary of State. Later he was selected by President Hoover as one of Amer ica's delegates to the London Na val Conference, and finally he was elected a Senator of the United States. was ica's f. ex as a ♦ Senator Borah of Idaho has not thrust aside Presidential aspira tions, and may enter the primaries next year against President Hoo ver in the Western States as well as Illinois and Ohio, according to some of his Progressive colleagues who are predicting a political rev olution which will induce him to become an active candidate. He is now regarded as in a receptive mood. This view is held by Sex)r ator Brookhart of Iowa, one of the insurgent Republicans, who say that political unrest is growing so rapidly west of the Mississippi river as to compel the Progressives to get behind the candidacy of a man to oppose Mr. Hoover. * When both of them were private citizens of Northampton, Mass.— Calvin Coolidge, a young attorney, and the late Dr. Alfred Pearce Dennis, a professor at Smith Col lege—they i'an against each other for the Board of Aldermen. Cool idge won, after a close race. In 1924, when "Cal" was a nominee for President, his old Northamp ton ci'ony let him know that he'd like to vote for Coolidge, even though Dennis was a Democrat. Calvin remonstrated, saying: "No, you'd better stay regular. I may need you later on." Dennis there upon supported John W. Davis. In 1925, when President Coolidge had to fill a Democratic vacancy on the United States Tariff Commission he appointed Dennis.
