Better Pictures. How? What Are His Plans? High Pullman Fares. -----By Arthur Brisbane Between Asia and America, in the waters of Bering Strait, are two little islands. A giant might step from our continent to old Asia in three steps, if his legs were fifty long, setting a foot on each of the two sunken mountain tops. Science says it has found on those peaks of submerged moun- tains tools used by human beings years ago, when America and Asia were united. Therefore, the first visitors to America did not come from Italy or Scandinavia in boats, they sim- ply walked over from Asia. Thus you explain the fact that red Indians are Mongolians. What "was once true of America nnd Asia was true also of Britain and tne continent of Europe. Bas- ques from the Pyrenees, whose de- scendants can still be identified in parts of England, walked across the place where the channel now flows.

While political Indiana wondered where the lightning of wholesale charges of political fraud and cor- ruption, dating back to 1924, would strike, Thomas H. Adams, veteran Vincennes publisher, who has con- ducted his crusade almost single- handed to date, prepared today to go to Chicago to seek backing in his effort to obtain an investigation of conditions in Indiana by the United States senate. Undeterred by dragon's conviction on that charge last year followed one of the swift- est and most colorful rises to power that the state has ever known. From an obscure position in the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan late in 1923 Stephenson rose to virtual control of Republican party in the state.

But it is announced that his effort will be confined to science, gsography, etc., for the lower grades. There should be educational pic- tures for all grades, and especially historical pictures.

And the pictures will be re- membered when the books are for- gotten. The election will be held Novem- ber 2.
