one extra edition, extolling in word
and picture the variety of products,
people and projects for which the re-
gion is noted. On the day of the ex-
ecutive's arrival, another extra is
published, showing pictures of the
President-some dating a day, some
a year-of the special train, the grim
bodyguards, the politicians and offi-
cials accompanying him. The musty
editorial office is crowded with big-
city reporters, news-reel carhera-men
and broadcasting technicians, who
are preceding the President across the
Red Ribbons And Blue
The one thing to mar the holiday
spirit is a quarrel between the mayor
and the postmaster. The mayor is a
Republican and the postmaster a
Democrat. Both have organized re-
ception committees, each claiming his
own is the only official committee the
mayor's men wearing red ribbons and
the postmaster's wearing blue. Both
groups assemble at the railroad sta-
tion and many angry words are taken
down by avid reporters before a co-
promise committee of both mayor's
and postmaster's supporters is formed.
Lean, brown ranchers stand about,
tading in the situation and deciding
where they are going to place their
votes in the next election for mayor,
for which office the postmaster has
threatened to ru.n
Townspeople have dinner in the
middle of the afternoon, in order to
be ready for the great event. Country
folk have been eating holiday food all
day long-fhamburgers, coffee, pop,
ice cream bars-and are on their feet,
ready tocome running atthe first
sound of the distant whistle.
A ' jnd there it is!, The long low
whistle of the speeding engine, faint
as the song of an insect, comes from
the gray distance of approaching
night. Blast after blast, engineer and
firemen take turns pulling the whistle
cord, sending the quivering sound f or-
ward to stir the heart of Republican
and Democrat alike. Here a tall man
in shirtsleeves holds up a youngster
clad in, a sheepskii coat, worn for
protection against the cold night wind
that blows down off the Rockies.
There stands a poor, fatigue-worn
farm-woman, smiling and excited for
the first time in many weary months,
tip-toe with expectation.
President Appears
When the train arrives minutes lat-
er, the small crowd of a few hundred
people cheer long and loudly. The
President appears almost immediate-
ly, smiling and affable, chatting with
the members of the reception com-
mittee. He is accompanied by . the
lieutenant-governor bf the state and
several members of the state legisla-
ture who are going to run for re-
election. Other prominent politicians
seeking office are also with him. He
says something in an undertone to
the postmaster, once having spotted
him, and they both laugh. As one
professor of political science has put
it, President Roosevelt's "nod" is the
last example of the pre-primary con-
vention in the United States.
With his body-guards close about
him, the great man is conducted to
an open car-nobody knows or cares
whose it is-and the procession be-
gins. As he passes between the two
dense rows of people lining the side-
walks, the President flutters a hand
Which has become as familiar a part
of the political scene as his physiog-
nomy. fore the large clapboard
schoolhouse, two, boys stand in the
middle of ,the road, holding up a
placard emblazoned "Stop here, Mr.
President!" As the car pulls to a
stop, little, girls of the first and sec-
ond grades burst into a song of greet-
ing. The President smiles and claps

his hands.
Then the car slowly passes oia to
the new -county jail and post office

buildings, followed by the crowd of
half-running, half-skipping onlook-
ers. The President pauses briefly to
inspect the projects with the county
engineer and the city health com-
missioner. Again he bestows his fa-
vor upon the postmaster by a ready'
laugh at one of the latter's quips.
Local Bands Play
Back to the car they go and off to
the ball park, where the President
speaks briefly, telling the people,
amidst cheer after cheer, how much
he thinks of their state and their poli-
ticians. He comments briefly on the
excellence of the music furnished by
the American Legion and high school
bands. Photoflash bulbs blaze as he
reaches down from the bandstand; to
shake hands with those who are for-
tunate to be near. Another moment
to chat with the bandmaster, and
then he returns to the train, where he
is photographed alongside the en-
gineer. Then the great man disap-
pears up the steps, which are pulled
up swiftly 'by the last of his body-
guards. He is seen once more on the
rear platform amidst pies and baskets
of fruit and other local products with
which he is everywhere deluged, and
then the train steams off towards the
blue, saw-toothed horizon, where the
Rockies meet the sky.
All is quiet again. People disperse,
to house or farm or hotel room to
talk soberly of ocal political impli-
cations. Reporters scurry to phones,
telegrah machines, and radio cars to
inform the morning papers and radio
audiences of the east of the latest
words emitted by the nation's chief.
executive. The town has had t'e
greatest day in its history, and it is
already too tired to stay awake.

the same inspirational function
achieved by the King James version
of the Bible for the church of its
time, is the purpose of the present

Professor Moffat emphasized the
fact that the Committee was not re-
translating the Bible but revising it.
He pointed out that a translator
merely transcribes the words of the
original into,the words of the present
language. The revisor, however, he
said, deals in comparing his edition
with the work of all the previous

Thermal stresses--the stresses and
deformations set up in solids by un-
even heating or cooling, as for in-
stance in boilers, in rocks due to the
sun's heat or in steel in quonching-
was the subject of the special talk
riven yesterday afternoon in the West
Engineering Building by J. N. Good-
ier of the Ontario Research Founda-
Mr. Goodier, who lectured here in
connection with the Symposium on
the properties of metals, being held
here this summer by the department
of engineering mechanics in the Col-
lege of Engineering treated the pro-
blem of evaluating such stresses
mathematically so as to bring it in
under the methods already used by
engineers for predicting stresses due
to loads. In order to do this, several
results developed by physicists to
answer questions in gravitation and
the conduction of heat were intro-
The material given consisted most-
ly of new developments made at the
Ontario Research Foundation during
the last few years.

European rearmament and highly

delayed the establishment of regular
airline service between Europe and
America for at least four years.
To land at a foreign port, an air-
