jTHE DENVER POST--FIRST IN EVERYTHING the people ever are foolish enough to do that, they'never will ease to regret it. t At the present time, all the proceeds from the state gasoline Lax are earmarked by the constitution for the highway department. Eighty-five per cent of the sales and liquor taxes are allocated by . the constitution to old-age pensions. If state income tax revenue is assigned to the schools, what source of revenue will be left to [induce state government and state institutions? Even with the property tax levy raised to the constitutional limit, Colorado's general fund revenues would not be enough to run the state government and operate the various essential state institutions. And with all other sources of revenue earmarked for zonstate purposes, Colorado would be in a mess of trouble. HE Denver school machine doesn't like the bill introduced in the state legislature to combine the school election with the biennial state election. The principal argument of the school lobby- |sts is that the proposed change would put the schools into politics. So far as that is concerned, the schools are up to their ears in politics now. Most powerful of all the political gangs in the state is the school bloc. It is neither Republican nor Democratic, but it is political just the same. i: There are two very strong reasons why the school election should be combined with the general state election. One is that the taxpayers would be relieved from the expense of a separate school election. The other is that a more representative vote would be obtained in school elections. Members of the school machine and their partisans are about the only voters who bother to go to the polls in a school election. But if that election were combined ,With the general election, then citizens would vote for school di- rectors at the same time they vote for state officials. ITLER, exulting over annexation of Memel to Nazi Germany, said he believe4 that "now, ha the main, we have arrived at an end to this unique process" of repairing the damage he clMms was done Germany in the World war settlement. His statement terpr&ed as meaning he ,has no further designs on European territory. But no reliance can be placed in any promise he makes. When he got the Sudeten area he said then he had no further territorial demands to make in Europe. But it wasn't long until he grabbed the rest of Czechoslovakia. A few days ago, Rumanian officials announced they had se- cured the "political and economic independence" of their country by entering into a trade treaty with Germany. Standing squarely in the path of Nazi expansion to the eastward, Rumania should realize Hitler can be trusted no farther than a pygmy could throw an elephant by the tail. A DENVER man, forced by adversity to apply for relief several years ago to save his family from starvation, went to the local elfare bureau this week and repaid the $128.12 which had been given him. "I've only done what any American who loves his country should do," he explained. But he did what very, very few people will do. There are a lot of people who "love" their coun- try merely for what they can get o____ut of it. T TOOK the lower house of congress only about one minute to J[ pass a hilt providing for the deportation of aliens who advo- cate any changes in the American form of government. There was o discussion of the measure which had been introduced by Con- gressman Dempsey (Den.) of New Mexico. There shouldn't be any question in the mind of any American about the desirability f this legislation. The kind of government w--'have here in the United States .should be exclusively the business of the American people. They alone should be permitted to advocate any changes in it. Aliens who come here and try to tell us what kind of government we should have should be kicked out unceremoniously. No foreign nation would tolerate any American interference with its govern- ment. A NEW YORK judge, sentencing James J. Hines, a Tammany leader, to a term of four to eight years in prison for a lot- tery racket conspiracy, told him, "If it were not for your age, I would not be so lenient with you." Hines is 62. If he were not a political "big shot," so much consideration wouldn't have been hown him on account of his "age." According to the court's statement, the evidence showed Hines had been paid at least $30,000 a year to protect the, vicious lottery racket. He used his political influence to help criminal racketeers  violate the law. He used his political power to save these law- ; breakers from the consequences of their criminal acts. He wasn t too old to abuse the public confidence and make a despicable mock- cry of government. He wouldn't merit any sympathy if he were  : a thousand years old. The damage a grafting politician does when he sells govern-  mental protection to a criminal racket can never be repaired. He : does not merely weakenhe destroyspublic confidence in the honesty and efficacy of government. He encourages the idea that DIShonesty is the only public policy that pays. He makes crooks out of officers who ctherwise would be honest. Political leaders who do such things as Hines was convicted of doing are the worst menace to the American system of representative government. ASSAGE of the reorganization bill is described as a "congres- sional victory" for President Roosevelt. That undoubtedly is gratifying to his vanity. But i it going to accomplish anything ffor the American people? Will the reorganization he makes re- duce the cost of government? Unless it does, that reorgahiza- ' lion will be a failure. Of course, it will be argued that greater efficiency will result from reorganization. If there is any improve-  ment in efficiency, that should be reflected in a reduction in the cost of government. ' In the light of the record of the way governmental spending has mushroomed under the new deal, one must be optimistic in- deed to expect that any reorganization President Roosevelt makes will cut down the coat of government. He is a marvel at TALK,  ING economy. But in practice he has made it plain he hasn't the HAT;S THAT / , .... . 1 r. I[ GOL(}N IRRIGATI0NS we':nm ,u.

Cheyenne, Wyo., March 24.--(&. P.)--The intensive manhunt in the Bear Tooth mountains northwest of Cody for Earl Durand, mountain man slayer, who was killed while robbing a Powell, Wyo., bank Friday afternoon, recalled several of the state's manhunts since 1899. None of the hunts, however, took the toll of life which the present search has claimed.

The Logan gang was being sought for a train robbery at Wilcox, Vyo., in June of that year. Historians disagree as to whether Logan, the gang leader, was killed in Wyoming or died in an at- tempted escape from the Tennessee penitentiary several years later. SHERIFF SLAIN BY HORSE THIEVES. the settlers out were hunted down by a posse of 1,000 men led by Sher- iff Red Angus of Buffalo. The posse itself failed to accomplish its objec- tive, however. Federal troops were called to the scene and the rustlers surrendered. MASKED PHANTOM CAUGHT EIGHT YEARS AGO. An unsuccessful hunt was made in August, 1900, for the Butch Cassidy gang which fled into Colorado after a train robbery at Tip|on, Wyo. A masked phantom, who baffled his searchers by putting his shoes on called }tdigo. Today not a single ounce of vege- i table Indigo is produced in America. Indigo plants were first cultivated In South Carolina In 1741 and de- veloped into a staple crop in the i south by Elizabeth Lucas from seeds[ sent to her by her father, Col. George I Lucas, lieutenant governor of An-[ tigua in the West Indies. Elizabeth Lucas married Charles Plnckney and was the mother of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, to whom ls popularly ascribed the fa- mous saying: "Millions for defense but not one cent for tribute." $ $ $ Indigo dyestuff was produced by fermenting or otherwise treating the juice from the leaves of the hldlgo plant. At the outbreak of the Revolution the south was producing a million pounds of indigo a year. $ $ $ When Benjamin Franklin went to France as American minister he took with him a cargo of South Carolina Indigo to pay the expenses of the mission. $ $ $ The word "indigo" Is from Latin "indlcum," meaning Indian anA re- ferring to the fact that the dye was first made In India. $ $ $ In India the process of producing indigo was a carefully guarded se- dlgo proved ineffective and In time it almost superseded woad. * $ tt Before the Revolution the colonies complained that British trade laws worked to the disadvantage of the indigo industry of the south. After the ]Revolution and the in- vention of the cotton gin the cotton industry gradually crowded out In- digo. $ $ $ In 1897 a synthetio indigo made from coal tar was put on the market and the synthetic product has large- ly replaced vegetable indigo, which had until then been unique among dyes for its strong, blue and perma- nent color. $ $ $ The growing of indigo in the south was abandoned completely more than half a century ago. One of the colors of the spectrum and rainbow was named indigo. The indigo bird, or indigo bunting, a small sky-blue American songbird of the finch tribe, was so called from the rich indigo blue color of the male's plumage in summer. (Protected. 1039.
