Official City and County Paper FROM THE STATE PRESS Surely, Not the Same Crowd? Possibly there is no connection, but the Craig Empire last week ear- tied on the first page a heading reading "Kluxers Visit Craig Church," and the editorial page car- tied the remark that "there are a Sew people who wouldn't dare to enter a church unless thoroughly disguised."--Weld Country News.

Privileges Going Fast Since th' women's gone to havin' their hair bobbed a feller can't swear in th' barber shops no more. Next they'll take the pool halls an' then we can't swear nowhere but to home.~Eaton Herald. Governor Sweet and Warden Ty- rian of the penitentiary are now saying naughty things about each other. As Sweet is the chief execu- tive and Tynan the chief execution- er in this State, it will be interest- ing to note who will get the head of the other.--Roeky Mountain Herald. Colorado, with two Senators to be selected in November, will be one of the main factors in the coming national campaign. Every Repub- lican who desires President Cool- idge to have a Congress in harmony with the White tIouse, will do his utmost to insure the election of Re- publican Senators. The follies of the Congress which has just ad- journed point to the need for har- mony between the excutive and the legislative branches of our govern- ment. The election of a truly Re- publican Congress is paramount, and the responsibility rests with the individual voter. Now is the time to become interested--November will be too late.wGunnison Repub- lican. The critics of President Coolidge says the President is a failure as a leader. If they mean as a leader of Congress this sounds true, if they mean as a leader of the people we have to be shown. The evidence tends to show that the President rather than Congress is the real re- presentative of the people and their interests. The President has been consistent throughout. His vetoes have been in line with his principles. He has preached economy and be- lieves the way to ec.onomize is to limit appropriations. Coolidge has been consistent to the letter and only an expression of the people at the polls will show whether he has won popular approval by his pro- gram of economy. Without doubt he has run great risk of killing him- self politically by his actions. We admire his grit and feel more than e4er like supporting him although we do not in every case believe just as he does, but we realize he is in a position to know the whys and wherefores better than we.~Routt County Rpublican, Not An Accident It was no real accident that made "vacation" ryhme with "filling sta- tion."~Greeley News.

It's often the truck a fellow drinks that causes the limousine accident. One good way to keep from eat- ing too much, is to buy a used car and try to keep it in running order.

These l)ortfollos stlmulct the young recipients abroad to a live inter- est In similar affairs and happenlng~ In their own country and usually elicit portfolios in exchange. Beside: the promotion of Internation- al ['rlendship, this work ou the part of the Juniors has other benefits. Chil- dren who hate geography suddenly find their Interest In th!s dry study awak- ened by the desire to know Just where their letters are going, tllstory, also distasteful to many, is made a pleas- tint pastime for the same reason, and languages become absorbingly Interest- lng~because tile A|uerlcan children waut to Rnow sometldng about the difference in the words which they use and tho~ which their correspondents across the sea use to mean tile same tiling.

Those who are promoting tile under- taking, however, believe tlmt great as is the educational value, the value In- ternationally is far greater, because It definitely cements understanding and friendship between children of differ- ent natlomtllties and races.and, there- fore, makes for permanent Internation- al peace, Publicists, as well as edu- cators, are of tile opinion that It Is the longest step forward for international understanding which has been taken In many years. There are now 5,200,000 children en- rolled In the Junior Red Cross and ap- proxhnately 2,625 schools engaged In this eorresvondence.

BURLINGTON Telephone Toll Messages Now Free From Federal Tax THE federal taxes laid on telephone toll messages by the Revenue Act of 1921 have been removed by the Revenue Act of 1924, which was enacted on June 2, and became effective as regards these taxes on July 2. Under the act of 1921, the taxes imposed on telephone messages were as follows: On a telephone message for which the charge was more than fourteen cents and not more than fifty cents a tax of ........ 5 cents On a telephone message for which the charge was more than fifty cents, a tax of 10 cents These taxes were highest in proportion to the charge for service for toll messages over moderate distances, the tax in some cases amounting to one-third of the toll charge. We have adequate facilities to care for any increased use of the toll lines which may result from the removal of these taxe~. ~Bell System" The Mountain States Telephone Telegraph Company One Policy--One System--Universal Service lhe Crescent ! $2,00 Per Year # ADVERTISE IN THE SAGUACHE CRESCENT
