Thursday June 9, 1932 i i Keep Your Car Locked Automobile thefts have increased dur- ing the past year. Insurance companies rert that the following practices have materially contributed to its situation: Many cars have not been regularly gar- aged but hav been continuously parked, when not in use, at the curb or on a va- cant lot. In many cases cars have been left for long periods without being locked. Of- te cars have been properly locked but one or more windows have been left open. Insurance companies stress the Impor- tance not only of seir,'g, to it that the transmission is locked, but of making sure that doors of ans are lock- LEGION PROTESTS CUT Department headquarters of the American Legion is calling upon mere of Conras f March 9_ 1879___[ FROM THE WORK BENCH .... t " PING--I suppose that when auto- bers throughout the state to wfre the i Illinois senators protesting against   'H W-IBL--EItor a.d Pebr " A stout lady camel in compiaining of )'mobiles came along it was necessarY(any cut in the appropriation for dis- i .

In the words of Dr. R. M. Little, chair- man of the Home Safety Committee of .the National Safety Council, "These accidents are not caused by new devices used in the home, but by the old in- cUnation of weak human folk to fall down and hurt themselves. Indeed, 44 per cent of the total home accidents are falls. What causes these falls and how may they be prevented ? Falls in th home are caused by such things as unsafe stairways which are bro- ken or littered with household utensils; they are caused by stairways that have no handrails; tha3 are caused when weak chairs and tables are misused for step- ladders. In some homes the floors are so highly polished that they constitute a ser- ious hazard, particularly if small, unan- chored rugs are placed over them. Unan- chored rugs are dangerous on any slip- pery floor, but 4specially when they are put at the head or foot of stairs. These serious and oftentimes fatal ac- cidents may be prevented by removing rubbish and litter from stairways; by re- pairing broken steps; by providing st,irs with handrails; by using a substantial stepladder when one is required; by e- ing satisfied with a moderate polish on floors; by anchoring all small rugs; and by equipping the bathtub with a secure hand hold. Housevives can make their houses not only clean but safe this spring during annual housecleaning. Past health record good, except a very distressing, constipation. Here was a case of "lazy colon" to be- gin with. I removed the offenders from the rectum; then set about to correct her diet and habits. This was of far more im- portance than the trifling operation. I stopped her from taking irritating cathartics, which she had been using for a long time. I forbade her taking colonic injections; I prescribed all Soft, Smooth, easily-digested food. 1 stopped her from the "roughage" idea which she had indul- ged to the limiL ' I forbade all worthless items in her pre- vious dietary; no indigestible stuff what- ever; no tough skins of fruits such as cherries, plums and raisins; no bran or bran products; no skins of baked apple --no grape-skins; no seeds, such as black- berry or r.spberry; stewed prunes car- ried the only skins penitted. No tough fibers were to be allowed. Toughed fried steaks weret taboo, meats once a day, but they must be soft and ten- der; eggs onc e a day, and butter and cream urged within reason, all nerve foods Green leaf vgetables and stewed fruits in plenty. Citrous fruits, especially the juice of oranges were urged--but no fibers. Wilted lettuce specially advised-- and cook4d onions, if onions at all. I forbade all "dressings" such as come with baked chicken; they are bad for lazy colons. And especially "combination salad." Eat vegetables sirr4y, not mixetl up in mass combinations. The patient is almost well--feels better than she has for years. It just occurred to me that this advice might be worth while to my stout lady readers. Railroads Deserve Public Support The railroads not only ask but deserve the support of the public in the fight they are making against odds of unequal re- gulation and subsidized . competition, in the opinion of President L. A. Downs of the Illinois Central System. They are making their struggle with determination and resourcefulness, Mr. Downs declares, and knowledge of their economies should not lead to the conclusion that they are retreating under firs. Among the recent achievements of the railroads Mr. Downs numbers their frequent rate reductions, increase in the safety, speed and dependability of trains, introduction of new travel comforts, ex- perimentation with pick-up and dellcry of package freight and increased sales efforts to improve their earnirgs. The public should" not think the rail- roads are lacking in gameness simply be- cause of the efforts they are making to make ends meet, Mr. Downs de.clare& These efforts have included the discon- tinuance of trains, the closing of sta- tions, curtailment of purchases, reduc- tions in wages, the laying off of employ- es and the susprlsion of dividends. Another Jesse James For many years the argument has been waxing about Jesse James. Many people have claimed that the notorious outlaw was killed by Bob Ford. Others claimed that James was not killed. Persons claim- ing to be the outlaw have been poppin up at intervals for years. Now we have one more. An aged man who insisted he was the Jesse James of many years ago rcently visited Governor Henry S. Caulfield of Missouri, and asked for a "complete par- don." A delegation of Excelsior Springs citi- zens, who said they were inclined to be- lieve the man is the real J James, ap- peared with him. Among them was Chief of Police William A. Payne, who said he knew James as a boy. He also said he viewed the body of the man killed by Bob Ford and had not believed it was that of the outlaw. "Jesse James" told the governor that he had been wandering about for forty odd man killed by Ford, he claim- invention."

TRAIN WRECK KILLS ENGINEER AT DURAND The engineer was killed and sever- al members of the tmn crew injured Monday when the Southwest Limited man inventing anything? PING--Well, I can't say that have. PONG--I didn't think so. The only thing they ever invented was more and numerous things for their husbands to do every time he has a holiday. The only thing they ever in- vented was work, work, work. PING--What kind of an invention are you interested in? PONG--WelI, I like to see someone invent a powder that you could sprinkle on the grass to keep it stunted. PING--You mean so that the grass wouldn't grow over a certain height PON--Just that. I'd wat it so short that  lawnmower would be as unneeded as a razor in the Hse of David. PING---Have their been any in- ventions that have helped the poor husbands who have to cut their lawns ? PONG---VCeII, I figured out one but it wouldn't work. PING---Wouldn't work. What was it ? PONG---It was so simple anyone should have thought of it. PING---What was it? I'm getting curious. PONG--Waiting until tomorrow. PING--That was simple but I'd ex- pect something that simple from you. PONG--When that didn't work I tried something else. PING--Well, let's have it. ) PONG--I wrote a song. i PING--What has that to do with cutting grass ? edPONG. Nothing much, but it help- PING--In what way ? PONGWell every time I cut the lawn I sang that song and the third time I used this song all the neigh- bors volunteered to take turn about cutting my grass. PING---Was your singing that ter-i rible ? 1 PONG--No, but I made up a new parody about my neighbors every time I executed the grass. PIN(N--What do you mean? PONG--WelI, each time I made up a parody I told about some of the things these husbands had been doing that they didn't want their wives to find out. PINCr--That was clever. How long did it last ? PING--Until a fellow who used to know me moved into the neighborhood. PING--Didn't ymz know any dirt,a- bout him ? PONG--Yes, but I was afraid to play in it. PING--Was it that dirty? PONG--No. But you know that old axe, "That eople who live in glass houses should pull the shades domes when they are taking a bah." PING--Yes, I've heard that some- where. PONWelI, that was where I was weak. PING--Why, you don't live in a glass house. PONG--No. But I used to be an iceman.
