U., MEMPHI8, NO. 48-1922^ Progress in Sahara. The limits of the great arid wastes of the Sahara desert are slowly being narrowed by the Invasion of windmills and motorcars. The oases are being linked together by good motor high ways and the sinking of wells Is great ly increasing the tillable area. The soil is fertile and, wherever water can be obtained, tropical fruits, millet and other cereals may be raised. A trans-Saharlan railroad has been proposed by the French government, but there are many technical problems to be solved Jn the construction of such a line.

Birdsall State Superintendent of Education Bond frankly states that ball games and the. like should always be oi sec ondary importance in the life or a school. He adds that where more in terest is taken in athletics than in the regular work there is something radically wrong. Students, he says, should not receive compensation for services as ball players on ball teams for such arrangement cheapens and destroys the fundamental value of athletics. Superintendent Bond is em phatic in the statement that any school which offers money to Some good player to leave another school should be black listed. The following quoted words of Superintendent Bond are being highly commended here at the capital and elsewhere: “It is a positive shame the way some of the boys’* teams in basket ball dress for the games. There is too mueh nakedness. The attention of the county superintendent, teach ers, trustees and patrons is called to this matter. Games of all kinds should be prohibited where those who play cannot put on enough clothing to be decent in public.’’ -*• ' Many inquiries are being made for the House and Senate Journals of the legislative session of 1922.

Such, the Associated Press under stands. is the American position, and it is founded on the fact that the United States, like the European pow ers, possesses interests in Turkey and upon the American conviction that the United States cannot sit idly by and allow other world nations to dispose of the future of the Turkish state without taking into consideration the views of the United States. The American ambassador to Italy, Richard Washburn Child, and the American minister to Switzerland, Jo seph C. Grew, plan to attend all the sessions of the conference, with Rear Admiral Bristol Joining them later.

H i i WOULD PUT TEETH IN BOARD Administration Will Attempt To Pul Teeth In The Railroad Labor Board At Call Seaalon _____ . Washington.—The administration will attempt to put teeth in the railroad labor board before the new congress -la convened. But the attempt, although it will be accompanied by certain amendments to the transportation act, to make the board more attractive to the railroad workers, is foredoomed to failure. One of the proposed new features is an anti-strike clause, which is in tolerable to organized labor, and may result In the abolition of the board by the progressives in the new house and senate, and finally result In govern' ment ownership of railroads. Although some of the president’s ad visers have pointed out this danger to him, he has summoned Senator Cum* mins, chairman of the interstate com* merce committee, back from Iowa to confer with him on new railroad leg islation. Cummins called at the white house as soon as he arrived and ar ranged for the conference. Thus the whole controversy over the Esch-Cummins or transportation act ia to be reopened after a respite of eigh teen months.

Tha the board be empowered to enforce its decisions against the car riers. 3. That the personnel \>f the board be entirely representative of the pub lic, instead of its present personnel— three members respectively for the public, the employees and the carriers. 4. That the board be made a divi sion of the interstate commerce com mission, with headquarters in Wash ington, instead of in Chicago, ae at present ' 5. That the board recognize the principle of the living wage as a Just and living wage, and determine the amount of such a wage. 8.
