can start out absolutely sure :that they can
swim the: rapids of its complexities without
failures. The main thing is for one to recog-
nize the existence of them and not to push
forward unless you are sure of your strength.
Youth, fortunately, is filled with strength
and daring. Preserve these, along with a'de-
termination to succeed, and yottr'battle is hall
won.'Don't allow a first or a second failure
daunt you. It may take many hurdles to sur-
mount the obstacles in your way to the green
pastures of success, and in this way you can
still hold the dreams of graduation night,
even if you have not accomplished all your
desires. Sometimes a man or woman is a
greater character in failure than in our mod-
ern conception of success.
The real test of worthiness is honest ef-
fort, together with a willingness to carry on,
free from bitterness and envy toward the
more fortunate who may have accidentally
found smoother waters in which to swim. This
is the substance out of which great characters
are molded, more enduring in memory than
the most worldly and monetary success. Such
men and women are the real unsung educa-
tors of a nation, more revered and glorified
than the kings, of the earth.
Through success and failure keep your
head up arid, above all-keep smiling.

We could do some plain and fancy chortling

.Some timeago it was proposed. that a ne\y

Strong' objectios'.against, this plan appeared
and President -Roosevelt referred. -the:-matter
to the interstate commerce commission. The
cunnmissi':'n issued an exhaustive factual re-
port, and rejected the proposal as being inr
necessary, as dangerous to the welfare of
other carriers, and as being of possible beneL
fit to only a few large shippers.
It would be a splendid idea if the commis-
sion were empowered to make a similar
study of the proposed Florida cross-state
canal, which is now being actively sponsored
and on which several- millions of dollars al-
ready have been spent. So far, debate on the
project has been largely political in character
-comparatively little unprejudiced attention
has been given to its economic and social as-
pects. The canal would cost probably a couple
of hundred million dollars and several hun.
dred thousand dollars would be required for
annual maintenance. And all that money
would come out of the pockets of the general
Water transportation to a large degree is
dependent on the whims of nature-a canal
may be out of service when most needed.
And in doggone few instances has any wa-
terway been of service to the small shipper.
Under any circumstances, the overburdened
taxpayers should not be forced to sink more
millions in water transport until it has been
thoroughly approved by an unprejudiced
body. And the interstate commerce commis-
sion is the logical arbiter.

In Russia too often the prefix."ex" in the
word "ex-official" means executed. St.

Well, now that all the election
hullabaloo is over for a couple or
weeks and we practically know
who's who, I can git back to my
favorite pastime of,raking the ad-
ministration over the coals.
For quite a while we been goin-
thru a session where our head men
up there on the windy Potbmac
keep tellin' us we gotta dio this or
do that there- or -we can't survive.
Machinery is. ruinin' us, they say
-and our frontiers' are gone-ane
-we better ,pull back into our- shelt

the finest frontiers anyonewould

Washington come down and take
a look at our -Willis Swamp fron-

hooey like that pretty soon we'll
all be believing' it.
We're a nation of suckers. Mr.
Hitler says if you tell people
something often enough, they will
get to believin' it. We been actin'
like the guy who lets, his wife buy
his hats for him.
The good lady went into Zim's
store and says, "I want a new hat
for my husband." And Zim says,
"Yes, mam," and he got the hat
and wrapped it up. But tle lady
was non-pluss'ede or something
like that, and she says, "What size
is the hat-you didn't as-k me what
size I wanted." And Zim says, "It's
a 61/. All men who let their wife
buy his hat wear a 614."

she is forced to accept a job with
two shoe-string producers. When
country-boy Eddie Albert comes to
the big city with $20,000, fostering
the hope that he will buy a hotel
and settle down with Lydia, the
producers sell him an interest in a

signs the check since the starry-

The plan hits a snag when the
volatile leading lady threatens to

him plant a bomb under the stage.
Luckily for the bumpkins, the
wife of one of the producers is a

Petunia of Ideal Shape

Wins All-America Medal

Plant breeders working with bed-
.ding plants have in mind an ideal
which might be described as fol.
lows: A dwarf, compact plant
forming as nearly as possible ahemi-
sphere of color. They would like
the flowers to be so numerous that
leaves are never-or hardy ever-
seen; and the plant should bloom
without check until frost kills it.
This ideal has so far not been
realized, and it may be better so.
A plant that "stayed out" so com-
pletely as that would hardly seem
alive. Still, it mist be admitted
that the breeders have something,
"when they seek a plant that will
grow compactly, and produce a
inass of bloom. So when judges in
the All-America trials for 1940 saw
the new petunia Cream Star, they
recognized its merit and awarded
it a silver medal.
This petunia is the nearest ap-
proach to the ideal plant that has
.yet been produced in petunias. It
grows in a compact mound and its
flowers are so freely produced that
it always registers as a color mass.
The color is faintly cream, though
;giving the effect of white in the

Petunia Cream Star

yellow is the one color so far miss-
ing from petunias, except as a faint
tinge, it will be realized that this
variety is an important one from a
breeding standpoint.. If its excel-
lent growth habit can be trans-
mitted to offspring, and the faint
tinge of yellow strengthened, then
great progress may be made in
petunia breeding.
In the meantime Cream Star is a
grade one product, and will be found
the best white petunia to date, ex-
cellent for window boxes, tubs and
