He advocated pro- hibiting any increases in wages dur- ing war also." Chairman Johnson 'of the house veterans' committee and General Dei- afield, former chairman of the war department board of contract adjust- ments, opposed the referendum plan as impracticable and unnecessary. Bernard M.

CORES of towns and" villages in the Balkans, in Jugoslavia, Bul- garia and Greece, have been wrecked by earthquake shocks, and the dead, though officially put at 150, probably numbered nearer 1,000. The temblors continued for several days. King Alex- ander of Jugoslavia and King Boris of Bulgaria both left their capitals and personally directed the relief work in the stricken districts, which was carried on effectively by the Red Cross. Terrific gales, accompanied by snow and extreme cold. swept over most of Europe during the week, and flooded rivers, blocked highways and delayed trains added t the distress. The is- land of Mauritius was devastated by a hurricane that killed a number of persons and left 0.000 homeless. Northwestern Japan had an earth- quake that destroyed many houses. ERU'S new provisional president is Lieut. Col. David Samanez Ocam- po, and he has assumed the office in Lima after flying there from Areqnipa. Ocampo was the head of the "southern Junta" which was set up by Arequl'pa revolutionaries. He and his followers, to bring peace to the country, gave up their regime tn favor of the new Junta at the capitai, and Ocampo was promptly put at the head of the gov- ernment.

AVY department officials announce that contracts for the construe. tfon of at least six of the eleven de- stroyers appropriated for during the short session of congress will be awarded early this smamer.

Holmes Safety Association at Wash- Ington, D. C., according to word re- ceived here. Limon.--Trees can be successfully grown on the plains of eastern Colo- rado and in practically all of tile states of the West without irrigation. This is the claim of W. S. Pershing of Llmon, who in the last fifty years has been responsible for the planting of more trees in more places in the east- ern part of this state than any other Ian. Alamosa.--A. J. Hammn of Manza- nola, formerly field manager in the San Luis Valley for the American JSeet Sugar Company, assumed duties as the new executive secretary of the Colorado state farm bureau. He was formally elected to the vacancy left by death of Edward Fair of Romeo by the executive board of the farm bureau. Pueblo.--An order for 15,800 ton of steel rails, valued at three-fourths of a million dollars, has been placed with the Colorado Fuel & Iron Com- pany by the Western Pacific raih'oad. The rails will be rolled at the Minus- qua steel plant here at once and de- livered for use in replacing tracks between Cluro and Tonka and betweer Elburz and Alazon in Nevada. Greeley.--L. S. Nelson, local sports- man and official game fowl bander for the U. S. biological survey, gave a sorrowful reminder to duck hunters' here a few days ago. If plans for proposed legislation now under way culminate successfully, sportsmen with a flair for automatic shotguns and slaughtering ducks are going to be sadly disappointed, he said. Attempts to substitute pumpgun for automatics are being made. Denver.--Where thousands of In- dians once made their home, there is now only a scattering handful. Colo- rado, once the hunting ground of nu- merous trbes, now has an Indian pop- ulation of only 813, it is shown by figures compiled by the state" board of immigration. The Indian population Is made of the Mountain Utes and the Southern Utes, both located on reser- vations in the southwestern part of the state. Oklahoma has the largest Indian population with 121,844, and Arizona is next with 47,072. Fort Collins.  Within the past twenty years, a thriving industry has been developed in the West, and par- ticularly in southern Colorado--that of growing Pinto beans. These beans are delicious and are quite as valu- able as Navy or white dried beans. According to Miriam J. Williams of the Colorado Agricultural College, beans, when dried, are changed in composition, losing a great deal of water and increasing in protein and starch content. They have a much higher percentage of protein than most vegetables, although the protein found is not complete. Gunnison.--Old King Winter made his last stand against approaching spring 10,000 feet up in the Rockies near Gunntson, when he presided over a spectacular winter carnival, the fea- ture of which was the selection and crowning of a queen. Three coed can- didates selected by leading organiza- tions competed for the honor of queen on qualities of sportmanshlp.

Cameron, one of 'it employees. The information against Pass, charging aggravated robbery, was filed in Arap- ahos county. Pass was held In Jail twenty-two days. Con', PLAY ..', REST --child needs Castoria WHEN a child is fretful and britable, seems distressed and un- comfortable, can't play, can't sleep, it is a pretty sure sign that some- thing is wrong. Right here is where Castoria fits into a child's scheme-- the very purpose for which it was formulated years ago! A few drops and the condition which caused the trouble is righted; comfort quickly brings restful sleep. Nothing can take the place of Castoria for children; it's perfectly harmless, yet always effective. For the protection of your wee one--- for your own peace of mind--keep this old reliable preparation always on hand. But don't keep it just for emergencies; let it be an every-day aid. Its gentle action will ease and soothe the infant who cannot sleep. In more liberal doses it will effectively help to regulate sluggish bowels in an older child. All druggists have Castoria; it's genuine if you see Chas. H. Fletcher'a signature and this name-plate: .r" ..= 00--assuranceof a goo00 1 |ras/es alrgd  water.

Stay in the house if you can--keep warm. Bepeat with another tablet or two of Bayer Aspirin every three or four hours, if those symptoms of cold persist. Take a good laxative when rou retire, and keep bowels open. If throat is sore, dissolve three tablets in a quarter-glassful of water and gargle. This soothes inlammation and reduces infection. There is nothing like Bayer Aspirin for a cold, or sore throat. And it relieves aches and pains almost instantly. The genuine tablets, marked Bayer, are absolutely harmless to the heart.
