Feb. 28. The : Federal Power Commission was charged during debate in the senate over the bill granting authority to engage a personnel sufficient to carry on Its work, with exceeding the scope of Its authority and unnecessarily de laying; development of waterpower pro jects through going too deeply Into detail. Senator Underwood of 'Alabama, democratic loader, attacked the al leged plan of the Commission to sur vey and review the entire system of rivers in the United States before granting licenses for development of waterpower project. Joining in the attack Senator Wes ley Jones of "Washington, charged that whenever Congress vested some gov ernment commission with power to carry on some work It straightway de vises some means for enlarging the scope of its work, regaining a big office force and doing a lot of things Congress did not contemplate. Senior King of Utah charged the IE P LOG!

General William Mitchell, Inset, chief of the U. S. air ser vice, asked for the test to prove his claim that aircraft have made battleships obsolete.

Ho urged pro vision in the bill for compelling the commission to issue licenses six months after application is made, anfi charged that if something of that kind Is not done the commission may never issue a single license. "We waited for 15 years, under the Idea of conservation, before we could pass a bill that would allow the. peo ple of the United States to dam the running rivers of th country and convert Into electricity the water power which would thereby be cre ated for the service of tho people," said Senator Underwood. "That de lay vas the greatest .crime ever per petuated by any set of men in the United States and involved the great est waste, and It was done under the plea of conservation.

T now .understand it is the policy of the Water Powor Commis sion to survey and review the entire system of rivers in the United States befora it grants a single permit. If the commission now intends to block the processes of development of the waterpowers by undertaking a survey that will require another 13 years to complete, I shall certainly resist ap propriations along that line. I 'nm willing to give the commission the ftp-' propriations needed to give reasonable opportunity to perform its functions and serve the people, but if it is to allow ambition to run away with it and cause further delay I am op posed to it." Senator Jones said he agreed with everything the Alabama senator said, but said he did not wish to give the commission excuse for further delay by refusing appropriations for the clerical help it asked. "This oommssion is doing just like every other commission or bureau that we create," said Senator King of Utah; "It reaches out and extends its authority and refuses to act until its personnel is swollen far beyond the dreams of Congress when the act cre ating it was passed. "This bureau refuses to grant per mits where the technical evidence is before it wh e, indeed it needs no technical evidence. It wants to apply to little streams a general compre hensive red tape system. It is trying to ace how it may not act rather than effectively acting and facilitating de velopment of water power. I have had many complaints against the in activity and bureaucratic methods of this organization. It is standing there doing nothing except interposing ob stacles to the development of water power. v e ought to Incorporate in this bill an amendment requiring the commission to act upon every applica tion made within not exceeding six months. As it Is now, they do not act and they never will act." "But we have got to give them the force," said Senator Jones. "Oh, they have had a sufficient force," replied Senator King, "but they want to build up a great bureaucracy; they want to swell their personnel until they have hundreds of em ployees.". Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, democrat, ihen objected to passage of the bill and it was laid aside without final action. MILLER TIRES HAVE GOOD RECORD Maintain Reputation for Reliability Over Long Period. Buying automobile tires is- like buy ing eggs. All look very much alike the bad ones look as good as the good ones, and the "no-name" tires as well as the product of which any manufac turer may well be proud. The "gyp" tire may have all the beauty and symmetry of the nationally known tire and yet be made out of shoddy. It's not reasonable to believe that a motorist can get a tire "just as good" as standard make for half the price. The tire owner who buys bargain tires is like the woman who bought a dozen eggs from a "friend" at 10 cents below the price her groceryman quoted. When sh'bVoke the shells, four of them we'e bad, so the eight good eggs cos,t' her more than the grocery man's jprice. In car mileage, it's not first costs that count but costs per'mile. Adding the cost of repairs to the purchase price and dividing by the mileage will quickly convince even thp most con firmed bargain hunter. , Cost comparisons personallyconcern every buyer of tires. One of Akron's "Big Four" has not only maintained "before-the-war" tiro mileage prices but actually reduced mileage costs 44 per cent. Within three years this company has also increased its mile age 115 per cent. It is only natural that Miller sales have i increased 500 per cent since the pre-war period.

Wyman, chairman of the foreign banking conference. "The United States has no real choice," satd Mr. Wyman. "Either it must be content to face nation-wide unemployment or it must be a serious exporter." TAMPA, Feb. 28. "Of course I am for abolition of the free cattle range, without which the Texas fever tick cannot be entirely eradicated," said Capt. R. E. Rose, veteran sate chem ist, while visiting Tampa last week, "and I hope the legislature will per mit the people to vote for its aboli tion at the general election in No vember. Floridians should call on them for that privilege." "How do range and forest fires af fect land?" Capt. Rose, who has been Florida's state chemist for twenty years. ;One biff fire," he replied, "will destroy the humus, the water-holding sponge of soil, so completely that the land will br unfit for cultivation for several years. It would be impossible to estimate the loss sustained by Flor ida through fires set by caitie men since I came to the state as superin tendent of. the Disston drainage pro ject in the Kissimmee Valley forty years ago." Capt. Rose strongly endorsed the plan of the Florida No-Fence League to ask the legislature to sumbit the proposition to a vote of the people.

More than that, they endanger their health by allowing their ailments to continue and develop into something serious. , If treated early, that is, within a reasonable time after tli3 first warning symptoms appear, serious conditions may often be averted.

Our grandmother made up a mixture of Sage Tea and Sul phur to keep her locks dark and beau tiful and thousands of women and men who value that even color, that beautiful dark shade of hair which is attractive, use only this old-time recipe. Nowadays we get this famous mix ture improved by the addition of oth er ingredients by asking at any drug store for a bottle of 'Wyeth's Sage ar.3 Sulphur Compound," which dark er is the haif so naturally, so evenly, that nobody can possibly tell it has been applied.
