Of the i Delco products corp., Dayton 1 Ohio. By Beverley Baxter conservative member of parliament Banka Senor to understand Britain it is necessary to understand the English people. And by this i mean the English and not the scots or the Welsh. The English Are almost As unpredictable As their weather and almost As Complex. Napoleon said that they were a race of shopkeepers and he died on St. Helena As the enforced Good of them miserable traders Hitler said that they were degenerates Aud would not fight the truth to that the englishman is a met a dreamer and that j he is fond of Leisure. He loves walking in the rain which is of course absurd and above All he a hates making plans. How or Why did Captain Cook discover Australia and new Zea i land he was sent out by the admiralty to note the transit of Venus and to bring Back the data. Captain Cook. Like Many other men who have come under the spell of Venus got More or less lost and in the process he discovered two Island continents afterwards named Australia and new i zealand and staked them with a British Flag. Was he knighted no. Was Britain grateful was he at once promoted and knighted not a bit of it. After a considerable delay he was Given a Bonus of 250 pounds probably on the i basis of overtime. The English never planned an Empire they never plan anything fortunately the scots followed in his Wake and did something about it. They Are not Hnz to or dreamers although they go All starry eyed on Burns night they Are organizers. Hence the British Empire. Now True to character the English Are utterly unprepared for cold weather or hot weather just As they Are unprepared for drought or prolonged rain. Their houses have no verandas Whereon to sit and watch the coming of a summer Twilight. No have they Central heating in their Homes to meet the Wanter if it should be really cold. Pipes on the outside. Such incurable optimists Are they that the pipes Are on the outside of the House utterly defenceless against the Frost. These pipes Are particularly useful to cat burglars and perhaps it would be unfair to them to put them inside. For Comfort we rely upon that j romantic. Dickensian Absurdity i the open grate Coal fire which sends a glow of warmth up the j Chimney and into the bricks on which it rests. This lends variety to English life for there is often As much As a 20-degree difference the executive budget Bdl Cal a for $112,329,000 to run the various state departments for the next i two years. This is an increase of $23,278,017 Over the appropriation for the 1945-1947 biennium. In addition the governor has requested a deficiency appropriation i of $717,600 to run the state t r the rest of the year. The question of segregation of Highway funds also will come up again when the Assembly Highway committee begins consideration of a Bill to restore Highway Money to general funds. The 1945 legislature passed a Law Over the governor s veto providing that ail Highway funds be segregated for Highway use Only. The Biti by assemblyman Shaeffer it d m Waukee Cults for repeal of this Law. Speed limit eyed.

Between the temperature of different parts of the one room. Which brings me to the Prin right a problem of British life today. Which is Coal. Britain is a Small country which maintains a population of 47,000.000 without any raw materials except Coal. Agriculture has never been fully developed because British Economy has been based upon the importing of primary products such As food in Exchange for manufactured goods. So abundant were the British Coal Fields and so excellent was the Quality that Coal was also an important Export. A Black record. It is not a Mere play on words however to say that the record of the Industry was a Black one there were go no employers and Good mines and there were bail employers and poor mines. There should have been widespread amalgamations 25 years ago so that the Rich pit could carry the poor one. Amalgamations did come but they were too late to Stem the rising resentment of the miners. It was in fact the prolonged strike of the miners which brought about the general strike in Britain in 1926. Then came the War in 1939 once More the state took Over mines As to 1914, and a minister j of fuel and Power was created to manage them.
