Republican Law-Makers Have Little Hope of Bonus Bill Coming Up Again During Harding's Administration Washington. Sept. 21. Republi can members of Congress who were firm In their support for the soldier bonus legislation, and voted to over ride the President's veto, departing for their district Saturday, admit ted they believed the peak of the bonus sentiment had been attained and that the lobulation in the future would not again muster the strength recorded In the House and Senate early thin week.

The cost of this venture is esti mated at 2,on0,nni),000, whereas, the defeated measure would have cost in the neighborhood of $5,000, non.noi) or an estimated cost per capita of population of about $50, At this estimate the defeated bonus would have cost the Stnte of Texas $j:i;,o,ro,f)iM for the period of its opt-ration.

Republicans are anticipat ing a difficult time in fustinning the administration' program as to the latter, and are leaving Washing ton convinced thnt the subsidy is of doubtful standing; before the pen pie. Americana Not Shipminded. J. Barstow Smull, president of the Kmergency Fleet Corporation, who recently returned from Europe, said in a statement today that Americana as yet, were not as "shipminded" as the British and that American bank era had not specialised in ship fi nance. Government aid i neces sary, he added, until the general pub lic lenrns more about ships and ship ping. Mr. Smull is quoted as being certain that permanent Government operation is wholly impracticable because of the nature of the shipping business, added, however, that mark ed strides have been made during the lnl year toward putting the Government-owned fleet on something near a business, basis. Expect Fewer Republican-.. The administration is looking for ward to a heavy reduction in the number of Republican members in the next Congress as an outcome of the November elections, llemocrats hare niui-h the same view, and the more of the enth.UHiHt.lio ones are counting iiK.n a Democratic House.

Among fie numerous "Doubting Thomases" w!.o form a part of the population, there are some, here am) there, who think that the number of automobile drivers killed or iu jured at railroad crossings is exag gerated. To all such we make the suggestion that they might keep a record for a month or so and see what the figures will show. Of course, outside of some big disasters the accounts of crossing accidents are not published far from the pla-e where they happen. So you would miss a majority of the cases all over the country. Through the news paper that you read you will get a lot of information, quite enough to tiirt a record. There are .lipping bureaus in the large tiues that r.iubl furnish you a flood of such items. Seeing is helieving. so make a record and study it. Statistic, rhow that 1,000 automobiles were struck at grade crossings in this country lnt year. In these aeii tlents, over 2,ilil0 men, women and children, were killed anil over -V OHO others were injured. In dozens of instances whole families, num bering from four to six, were wiped out as completely as though a cy clone had struck them. A cyclone comes without warning, from an un expected quarter. A train of cars always conies along a permnnent track, so you will know where to find it. Ever since we were chil dren we have known the fatal re sult of being struck by a locomo tive. Nobody can plead ignorance of consequences. And yet, this very tlay. more than one driver, some where, will heedlessly drive onto the tracks, without looking or listen ing, and then n rushing train will demolish the car. In company with wife and children he will meet mid den death. A little thought a lit tle of the serious attention you give to your business affairs, would save you from such a fate. Are you do ing anything to assist in the Care Crossing Campaign? Don't trust to luck. I'se common sense if you want to live long.

A FOREST BURIED UNDER THE CITY OK WASHINGTON Evidence of the existence of an ancient swamp in which great trees flourished in the tlays long past, possibly contemporaneous with er liest man in Amenta, has just been discovered n a deep excavation made for the foundation of a hotel under construction at Washington, D. ('. At a depth of about 25 feet below the street level the excavation disclosed a layer of black swamp murk, containing large quantities of wood, tree trunks, and stumps. Some of the stumps are of great sue, a few of them reaching a diameter of U or 10 feet. Much of the wood s well preserved, showing clearly the wooily .structure ami the external markings of the bark. A prelimin ary examination indicates that one of the more common trees of this ancient swamp was cypress. The story of the trees, however, is only a brief chapter of the whole geologic history shown in the ex cavation, which has just been exam ined by Chester K. Wentworth for the United States Geological Sur vey. Aget ago this part of the At lantic Coast I'lain was from time to time covered by the sea, into which streams swept vast quantities of mud, sand, gravel and boulders which formed thick deposits that covered large areat. When the reg ion finally emerged from the sea I'otomac River cut it valley in thes. deposits, which were carried about here and there by smaller streams. The large boulders are derived from the granite on which the gravel lies, but soma of the smaller pebble come from parts of the Potomac basin beyond the lllu Kidge and olhera from veins of quaitt in the granites of the 1'ivdmont Plateau.

ANNOUNCE THE CHANGE IN NAME OF THE LUBBOCK MONUMENT WORKS TO THAT OF South Plains Monument Company The latter name will be familiar to many of the out-of-town readers of the Avalanrhe, as the South Plains Monument Company of Plninview haa for many years, supplied the needs of other towns and communities around Lub boc'g in this line. This, our third yard, we recently acquired on account of the possibilities of Lubbock as a distributing point, and because we believe that Lubbock ia to be the City of the South Plains. We would have our future customers bear in mind that freight is quite an item in the cost of a monument and as all the better granite and marble comes from Vermont. Massachusetts, or Georgia, we will be able to effect quite a saving as we ship everything in CAR LOTS and all carving, letter ing, etc., is done at our yard. We will be glad to have you call and inspect the work on display or a post card will bring our salesman to your home with no obligation on your part to buy unless you wish to do so. Clarendon e PARENTS AS EDUCATORS e , "FALLING FALLING" j Uy Martha Gallaudet Waring. i This title, so familiar to students of the Mother Play Book, by Fried-: rich Kroebel, is the introduction to 1 a large subject. To those who won-! der that a man, as well as a philoso- pher, should have spent his time on a book of Nursery Plays, we have only to point out the deep psychology un-; derlying each play. The psychology of fear as an in-1 heritance.' an instinct, a symptom, as due to repressions, unconscious im-t pressions, "taboos" imposed from I without, has been the subject of much modern psychological discussion, so it is well sometimes to go back to beginnings and look at it simply and i from a practical standpoint. "Hetter a broken arm than the fear I of it all one's life." says Jean-Paul Kichter. ."Uetter still to have neith- j er." says' the mother who considers! every accident, and every disease i that befalls her child a direct accu sation that che had failed somewhere and somehow in knowledge or rare.

I bae played this with all my children when they were getting their air bath, to their great delight. From this point may come the first inqtortant training of the early years, how to do things freely but without fear because one does them correctly and therefore safely.
