Last week saw the completion of
improvements in the mechanical
department of the Carbon County
News that have greatly increased
the efficiency of the plant and
made it capable of turning out a
daily publication, the Red Lodge
Daily News, which was printed and
circulated in Red Lodge, Bearcreek
and Washoe this week.
Additional units of machinery
have been installed in the News
mechanical plant. 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. Another linotype—a machine
for casting the lines of type—has
been made ready for service, and
is supplementing the machine for

By Dr. William J. 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

air. Remove your overcoat or out
door wraps while you are attend

Good Ventilation Necessary.
Houses and buildings should be

publication of the Carbon County

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.

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

agreement that the special elec

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

next year against President Hoo

as Illinois and Ohio, according to
some of his Progressive colleagues
who are predicting a political rev

become an active candidate. He is
now regarded as in a receptive
mood. This view is held by Sex)r

insurgent Republicans, who say
that political unrest is growing so
rapidly west of the Mississippi

though Dennis was a Democrat.
Calvin remonstrated, saying: "No,
you'd better stay regular. I may
need you later on." Dennis there

1925, when President Coolidge had
to fill a Democratic vacancy on the
United States Tariff Commission
he appointed Dennis.
