bridges are now under considera
tion in Washington by Director
Stephen T. Mather pt the Nation
al Park Service and Dr. Hubert
Work, secretary of the Interior de
partment. Immediately following their ap
proval bids will be advertised for

ject will be completed. It la un
derstood that the worfc or grade
rectification, paring, and bridge
building : will approximate : $500,
000. . While some grade prepara
tion has been made, yet this phase
of construction will perhaps take
several months after the contract
is placed, before actual paving op
erations ran commence. - ,

such signals as most of them are!
If the engine ran as raggedly as
signals! are given we would all be
pedestrians by preference.
Cars are occasionally overtaken
and passed on the right hand side,
and the performance never fails
to cause inconvenience. This
practice is illegal, dangerous and
decidedly discourteous. When
you come to a busy intersection,
give the other fellow a chance.
Perhaps he was there first- When
you overtake and pass a car, don't
suddenly slow" down and force the
driver behind you to ride his
brakes to prevent mixing his radia
tor cap with your spare tire. If
you have to slow up after passing
a car, iyou shouldn't have passed
it. When there is a delay in traf
fic ahead, and a line of cars has
formed, consider the delay as un
avoidable, and don't be the ill
mannered yokel who holds down
the horn button, or he that drives
around the'side of the line."
The j useful work your engine
does when driving on a level road
is to overcome mechanical fric
tion and wind resistence. Both
these factors increase very rap
idly as you increase your speed,
which indicates that the slower
you go, the less gasoline will be
used per mile traveled. However,
at slow speeds the efficiency of
canizing that holds. High quality,
superior service. A trial makes a

cheer but it should be remembered
as a time for careful study and
thoughtful planning to more effec
tively carry out tne teachings of
the N'azarene which has made so
plain in his imperishable sermon
on the mount.
Re-read again the fifth, sixth
, and seventh chapters of St. Ma
, thew. Gandhi, the great teacher of
j India, was recently called upon to
j address thousands of his follow
ers. He read the Sermon on the
Mount and simply siid. "That is

message could really enter the
hearts of my listeners tonight it
would start such waves of right-

for na today to remember the in
humanity, the; Intolerance, the pesj
ttlence, 'the cold, the hunger,
through Which our ancestors lived
and endured for. ages. There Is
still untold misery and want and
thousands of hungry ones and
crime on every hand unpunished

ine next time you see a man
driving a horse on a he road stop
your car for a moment and no.
hi3 slow pace. Compare his slow
speed la thai of the cars that go
whirling! by and then recall that
in just half a generation every
thing lias been speeded up by at
least that amazing ratio. It is
only a fqw years since Mark Twain
gave us "The Connetieut Yankee
at Kin : Arthur's Court." Re-read
the story as told by that brilliant
humorist and then think how dif
ferent and astonishing the story
could be written today in view of'
the recent discoveries of science.
It is simply impossible "for we,
the participants, to rt-alizo and ap
preciate the wonderful develop
ments, that are all around us and
part of us. No one know.; nor
can foretell what the effect will be
upon the human race economic
ally, mentally, physically, ner
vously or. religiously. However,
what a pleasure to be actors in
this most absorbing, interesting
and amazing drama of all the
iges. Who can doubt at this time
the existence of God and the spe
cialmission of Jesus for the re
demption of the world when we
afe beholding in our own time
such ait unfolding of the secrets
of nature, more wonderful than
miracles recorded in Holy writ.
For my part, with head uncov
ered, I stand in awe before the
Supreme Maker and say to the
world, "Since the discovery of
radio. J am ready to believe what
so recently seemed the impossible.
Never again will I be astonished
at any future discoveries of (iod's
wonderful, intricate world." A
turn of a dial on the radio that
is transmitting my voice to your
ears tonight will give you other
voices from other stations miles
and miles away. The whole air
is charged with voices human and
music divine if we just tuned
to catch them. It is no more of
i miracle to believe God spVaks to
His faithful followers than -for
you listeners tonight to hear my
yoice. .The whole matchless civ
ilization is-a miracle.
May each one of us this Christ
mas day renew our pledge to do
everything in our power to pre
serve and perpetuate this most
hanpv condition in order that our
descendants may have and enjoy
r ne pleasures and benefits that are
ours. This can, be done by every
individual living a pure life, obey
ing the laws of God and the Just
laws of thf land If for no other
reason that simply because the
laws are made- by the supreme
authority f heaven and earth.
Civilisation has not moved con
stantly upward. It has come in
successive (waves. Another day of
darkness and recession can be pre
vented by each of us treating
everyone as 'brother rfnd sister
by the abolition of greed and self
ishness, by loving oar neighbors
as ourselves, by - following as
closely as possible,, in the steps of
the world's greatest teacher. Jesus
of Nanrareth:' ;
Truly we are living In a grand
and fearful age, Tn an age on ages
telling! To be living, simply to be
living, acting at this time Is
sublime.' "

Probably no single feature of Dodge
Brothers Motor Car has been rnpre widely
talked about and commended than the
power and promptness of the starter, -
The new two -unit starting and-lighting
system now advances Dodge Brothers
leadership in this important respect still
There are now no moving starter parts
when the car is in motion no starter
chain t no noise no wear. The new
starter is even more DEPENDABLE than
the old, and far simpler and more compact
in construction.
Many other major improvements have
been added during the past twelve months,
all vitally affecting performance and in
creasing value far beyond the apparent
measure of current Dodge Brothers prices.
