"There, that's good enough. I'll

Trist, amazement on his whisker-

HOWIE and Trist alternated on

Howie told Trist to discontinue the

WHERE IS IT GOING TO STOP?
The New Deal under your friend (he ain't
ours) Harry Truman is spending right and left
for anything and everything, like a bunch of
drunken sailors, and our tax burden is mounting
by leaps and bounds. And now the taxpayers of
America are being asked to shoulder another-
staggering tax burden. They are being asked to
subsidize farm land in Arizona to the tune of
$1,838 an acre in order that a few Arizona land-
owners may secure Colorado River water to
grow more field crops. Comparison shows that
this per-acre cost is 1100 per cent greater than
the average for all other western reclamation
projects to date.
No public lands will be opened for entry to
war veterans or other citizens under provisions
of the project. It will be used exclusively for the
benefit of present landowners. More than half
of the land involved is owned by 420 individuals

Cardinal and pineapple air plants
ages ago found life too crowded on

was hard at first because there was
no ground in which to dig their
roots and eke out a livelihood.
Food and water should come from
somewhere, and it would have to
come from the air, because the
plant had nothing about it-lbut air.
The air plant settled this very dif-
ficult matter by devising cups or
cisterns at the base of each of its
long tapering leaves.
Each leaf soon had a miniature
pond where small tree toads drank,
and laid their eggs. Here. too, dead
leaves and small twigs rotted and
made wonderful plant food, while
