.. . and Shakespeare was so right
Had the cashier of that Dallas National Bank acted on the
philosophy of Shakespeare, he would have less dollars but more
cord wood around the house—and he would have also more
clearness of conscience.
Some years back when one of THE PRESS carrier boys attract-
ed the attention of Ralph Geisenhoner, a v.p. with the Citizens
National bank here, he approached the head of THE PRESS with
the possibility of employing one of the carriers who stepped
around in business-like manner. Ralph thought he would be a
good addition to the bank. And he did—BUT.
And here is where the cord wood comes in.
When the carrier boy prospect for the bank was approached
about the possibility of such an advancement, he was given
this piece of advice; and after the young carrier boy said he
would like to join the bank's forces:
Young man, when you get behind that cash and look at it,
just remember this: it is nothing more to you than so much cord
wood. When you are tempted to take some of it home without
earning it, just imagine it nothing more than cord wood and
you'll never get in bad with the bank.
The advice went over. We knew the weakness of the boy,
and, likely most boys at times. To be tempted is human—but

Dear Mr. Anderson:
Your representative, the Hon-
orable Tony Korioth, is one of the
finest members of the Texas legis-
lature. 1 have found him to be
always sincere and conscientious
in his duties. His hard work in
behalf of his district has gained
for him a good reputation and
high prestige in Austin.
For the above reasons, I have
appointed Mr. Korioth to the Leg-
islative Council. I am sure he
will be one of its leading mem-

able to answer the Bible challenge: No man is tempted above
that which he is able to bear."
To be tempted is no sin, but to yield is.
Had the officer in that Dallas bank thought of the money
he carried away as being just so much cord wood, chunks of
coal or rocks, he never would have carried the article he stole
in that hour of weakness to his home.
That Denison boy made good. We knew his weakness and
had gone along with him in his needy hour and gave him the
moral support he needed to augment the support he had in his
mother. That Denison boy is today a colonel in the forces o!
the United States and stationed in a foreign land, married, with
a fine wife and children.
Money to him was nothing but cord wood.

Help Boy Scouts
in their effort to
aid the handicapped
Sunday, November 1st, is the
big day for Denison Boy Scouts
and Cub Scouts. Once a year
they perform their good turn foe
tlie hanicapped at Grayson Coun
ty Goodwill Industries.
Here’s how good turn works
A week in advance of Good Turn
Day, the Scouts distribute empty
good turn bags to all homes in the
community. The householders are
asked to fill the bags with any
ami all discarded but repairable
clothing and household goods.
Then these filled bags are to be
left on the front porch by 2 p.m.
Sunday, November 1st, when the
Scouts re-trace their steps and
pick up the bags.
This good turn is of great im-
portance to the Scouts and to the
handicapped men and women, for

Denison schools are
cited by magazine
Denison schools have been rec-
ognized in the October issue of
Better Homes magazine for its
scholastic achievements program.
An article on page 13 of the
October issue of the magazine
cites Denison schools for students
with marks of 90 or better being
awarded school letters. The ar-
ticle spells the city name incor-
rectly as Dennison, Texas.
The Denison schools recognition
appears in connection with an ar-
ticle on emphasis of science and
mathematics in school systems.
AUSTIN—The “turnover” of
lakes means the mixing of water
in lakes, according to the assis-
tant director of inland fisheries,
Texas game and fish commission.
“This mixing is brought about by
the cooling of thei water in lakes
during the late fall of the year.”
In the early summer or late
spring three distinct layers of wa-
ter form in the larger lakes and
in some of the smaller lakes of
Texas. The upper layer is called
the epMimnion, the middle layer is
the thermocline, and the lower
layer is the hypolimnion. The top
layer becomes warmed by the sun
and since warm water is light,
tends to remain at the surface.
In the middle layer there is a
rapid decrease in temperaure in a
downward direction. The lower
layer remains cool and because
cold water is heavy, tends to re-
main at the bottom of the lake.
In late spring or carlyvsummer
the top layer js relatively thin. As
the sun's rays heat the water, this
layer becomes thicker and extends
itself deeper until, in some of our
deeper lakes, it may he as much
us 60 feet thick jn later summer.
The lower layer becomes a “bio-
logical desert” in which there is
very little or no oxygen and only
anaerobic bacteria can survive.
The wind continues to circulate
the top layer, but, because it is
light water, It failei to m}a with
the lower heavier water in the
thermocline and in the bottom
layer. This causes the bottom
layer of water to become stagnant
and to contain odious decomposi-
tion gases toxic to fish.
As cool, fall weather moves in,
the upper water is cooled, becomes
heavier, and settles to a lower
level. As it settles, mixing be-
tween the upper layer and the
bottom layer commences. Once
more, the winds churn the water
and assist this mixing action.
Soon, the three layers are one
and the temperature is fairly uni-
form from the bottom to the top
of the lake.
The odor, noticeable in the tail-
races below dams is caused by the
drawoff of water from the lower
levels of the lakes.
By early winter, the lakes have

TO THE NATION-INCLUDING YOU-EVERY YEAR
Featherbedding on the railroads - pay for work
not done or not needed — is costing the Amer-
ican people the shocking total of more than
$500,000,000 a year.
You pay for it every time you shop, because
featherbedding costs are hidden in the price of
everything you buy.
Obsolete union work rules, involving the rail-
road operating employees, are responsible for this
gigantic burden. Right now, for instance, these
rules require every diesel locomotive to carry a
fireman —even though diesels have no fires to
stoke, no boilers to tend.
The forthcoming negotiations between the rail-
roads and the unions are urgently important to
the whole nation.
In asking the unions to drop these featherbedding
rules, all the railroads ask for is a fair day's
work for a fair day's pay.
Here’s what’s next.
