'Mason City and Clear Like by the week * -1 ,.S2.:s . .S1.25 . .$ .50 . .S1.75 A Burr Under the Saddle B ACK in the days when Henry L. Mencken was editing American Mercury, its mission in life— if it had one—was to make folks angry. The theory was that when they got angry, they might stir themselves into thinking a bit. In short, the Mercury was designed to be a burr under the American saddle. That this purpose has not been entirely lost from sight since the Baltimore sage gave up his editorial duties and joined up with the republicans and Rotary is evident from these stinging paragraphs drawn from an article by Channing Pollock in a recent issue of the magazine: "Why work 1'or money when you can get it by voting for ii?' ! "Men die of hardening of the arteries; nations of softening of the spine.' 1 "For nearly four thousand years politicians have remained the lowest form of animal life." "Our difficulties are not with a social system that won't work but with a society that won't work." "A people no longer willing to do things for themselves naturally jump at a leader who does things for them." "The truth is this forward march of the world is leading back to barbarism." "We shall run out of money, of course, but by then we shall have established a government and a bureaucracy that will be independent of our votes." '•The new yearning for standards of living that begin below the belt, lather than above the collar, have sunk us into indifference as to conditions of life and government that no vigorous people would tolerate for more than an afternoon." "The great trouble with our universities ;s that they are spoiling thousands of good truck drivers.'^ '•In America almost nobody has ever conceived of education as anything but a means to make money." "America is no longer sensible, if indeed it ever was. It has gone over to easy thinking, easy living, easy money, unreasoning prejudice, and meaningless slogans. It has become apple pie for every cheap demagog and every expensive vote buyer." /'Gone With the Wind" is descriptive of -what happens to the paycheck just before Christmas too. Rex shouldn't be disappointed : if the 'molasses business flows a little slowly this winter. • At least $75,000 worth of newspaper space has been given to that $7,500 Feller case. Fiction writers would be hard pressed for a more improbable story than that of Edward VIII. Carter Glass is showing indications again of being an "unreconstructed rebel." England has Lindy and Anne. How about America getting Eddie and Wally? The Cleopatras and Helens of old have their modern counterpart. Is it "twilight for kings?" PROS and CONS HE PRACTICES WHAT HE PREACHES Iowa Legionaire: Legionnaire Fred Bierir.ann, of Decorah. who was re-elected to congress in the fourth district, writes that he was against Ihe state "bonus," wrote against it and voted against it just as he ivas steadfastly against the federal "bonus." He was entitled to the maximum on both, he adds, but has never taken a cent of either, and never will; moreover, he has not and will not claim veterans' tax exemption granted under the state law. Further, he says that he did not take advantage of the executive order of President Harding that no postmaster who went overseas should be dis- •I have all along taken the view that it is dead wrong from every angle to create a specially privileged class out of the boys who wore the uniform," he continues, "but I have been heart and soul for those who are suffering of injuries, and the widows and children of those who never came back, and I think I have done as much for that class of soldiers as any congressman in Iowa." Socialist Neutrality OOCIALIST neutrality is evidently accompanied ^ by reservations. The socialist national executive committee is demanding that the government of the United States send munitions and other aids to the government of Spain and deny similar assistance to the Spanish insurgents. Reason for the discrimination is a claim that the present government of Spain was democratically elected and that the attackers are destructive adventures fighting to restore federal institutions by the bayonet and the bomb. Strict neutrality demands that the United States keep its hands entirely off the Spanish situation. The's'ocialists may be right in their declarations that the rebellion in Spain is more or less of a fascist movement ngainst a lawfully created liberal government. That, however, does not justify the United States in meddling with the internal affairs in Spain. Much the same situation developed during the administration of George Washington as president of the United States. The French revolution and its aftermath created conditions in France not dissimilar to those existing in Spain today. Many citizens of this country wanted the United States to aid the liberals in France. President Washington's policy of r.on-interference is now generally recognized as having been a wise doctrine for this nation. The socialists see only through socialist glasses. Claiming to be pacifists, leading socialists, including Mrs. Victor Berger, have praised the military preparedness of Russia as being legitimate because of its support of a communistic government. Strict neutrality, as interpreted by most people, means that a nation shall mind its own business. How a Language Grows jNSENSIBLY, the American language is becom- •*• ing a thing apart from the English language. We have different thoughts to express, different circumstances and events to face, than were to be expressed or faced by the master of 18th century prose who put the English language in its present classic form. They did in their day what we are unconsciously doing in ours—changing' the language to fit the facts of life. The change is already conspicuous; much that was slang twenty years ago is now accepted American usage—some of it accepted British usage, although it is notable that the British, doing the same thing, add different slang and different technical terms to their branch of the language; express themselves in British as we express ourselves in American. No harm in that—it is, indeed, inevitable. Slang is the budding of new growth in language, and should be as welcome as progress in everything else—always with due regard to its usefulness and fitness, ef course. Some buds have to be pinched off, a vulgar or improperly expressive. But the best of the new buds become part of the living tree, and if the lower branches dry up and drop off, the tree is still vigorous and fertile in its upper growths. Slang should be used sparingly, but fully when it fits. There are no rules applicable—a living language is spoken by ear, and not by note. No one can learn a good style from the text-books; he can! only soak himself in good style and hope that enough of it will stick to make, in combination with his own natural endowment, a good individual style of nis own. In this country a certain dash of muscular American slang is essential. The depression is so far behind us now that the statisticians and economists have emerged from their storm cellars and are actually saying they saw it coming.. ~ IT'S AN ILL WIND . . . Spencer Reporter: A queer quirk of the motor traffic problem is the fact that the fewest accidents take place at times when conditions on the highway are the worst. / An advance taste of winter weather—snow, sleet, and cold—swept over part of the middle west recently; and immediately traffic accident figures dropped almost out of sight. The roads were icy, visibility was bad, it was perilously easy to put a ca'v into a skid—but for several days no one was killed and hardly any serious accidents were recorded. The explanation is clear. When streets and roads are slippery, motorists drive carefully. They are willing to spend an extra five minutes on the highway, for the sake of safety. It is only when the path is clear and the road offers no danger that they hurry, take chances— and kill each other. DISAPPOINTED MR.

EVERYTHING BACKWARD FOR SOME pHE POOR left-Handed people have a terrible •*• time learning their way around to a right-handed world. It is a world for which they never were made and which was not made for them. Everything is just backward for there, the way the doorknob turns, the way a watch winds, the way to screw in a screw or screw one out, monkey wrenches, bits, augers; everything grcs the wrong way, ,, __._ „ —«, 0 ™. , , They learn these things in the course of time, lie d : d not receive appoint- but ? right-handed person can imagine what his troubles would be in a left-handed world and have some sympathy ment as ambassador to Russia. Brookhart had been very hopeful this plum would be granted him as reward for support of the democratic ticket in the recent election. The former lowan, now a resident of Maryland, holds great admiration for the Russian form of government, which he classes as the best in the world, and would have felt much at home in communistic surroundings. But perhaps some other good paying job will "be found for him; at least he will not cease trying to land one. And in- his Maryland home he is so conveniently located he can keep close watch for an attractive job as vacancies arise. • THE LIBRARY IS STILL MISSING University of Iowa Daily lowan: When Walter A. Jcssup tendered his resignation as president of the University of Iowa, on Dec. 12, 1933, he made the significant statement: "Looking back over my 22 years association with the University of Iowa, the greatest disappointment has been that we have been unable to get the library we needed here." Today, with the enrollment of the university of Iowa the largest in its history, the need for a central library is even more acute. MEW INDUSTRY FOR IOWA Iowa Falls Citizen: For weeks now, Grinnell newspapers have been carrying stories on the opening of a ne ,v shoe factory, which will soon start operations in that city. It's mighty cheerful reading to anyone, and of course is especially cheerful to the peoole of Grinnell. Here's hoping that the Citizen can be spreading the same kind of news about some industry in Iowa Falls before too long. IOWA DOUBTFUL STATE FROM NOW ON • Eldora -Herald-Ledger: For the people of Iowa generally, one clear result emerges from the Nov. 3 melee. This state has definitely ridden itself of the burden of a single party system. Henceforth, Iowa is a doubtful state, the battleground of two evenly matched parties. Democracy functions at its best under such conditions. THE WALLY INFLUENCE IN IOWA . Clarion Monitor: Have you noticed how many Clarion young ladies (and matrons) are parting their hair in the middle of late? Qi.

One of the difficulties is with '. spelling. ,;3.Ve were-,:talking -about ' th,s i and e words like "deceive" and "relieve" and I said I never could remember the rhyme (but that my friend Carl van Vechten, the novelist, gave me a rule I could remember which was the two words "lice and rice."

S. senate, is expected to practice law in Washington, D. C, BUT LOTS MORE PRIVILEGES Indianola Tribune: The English king hasn't as many rights as his subjects. Poets Everywhere By LOU MALLOttl LUKE, Hampton Dedicated to Crinfint the Joy Hid Inspimtinn nl Good Vcr>r Inlo the Lives nt Rank and File Iowan«. J OHN RICHARD MORELAND of Norfolk, Va., is a poet of profound understanding. At his touch the everyday familiar, even the commonplace, is transformed "to a new and lovely thing. He has a rare insight into the depth of human nature and an equally rare delicacy Jn saying what he thinks. I should like to quote a few lines from one of his letters in regard to today's poem. "I found one "day this wild plum tree marred by the bruised and broken body of a Negro hanged thereon. The.' subject is repelling. But the theme is true." WILD PLUM TREE (By John Richard Moreland) Spring after spring I watched it flower, As white surf in a windy hour. Then from the womb of each pale star Would come a green and globular Hard fruit, that summer would reveal Tempting and red as cochineal. But this spring day I was to find A different fruit shaken by the wind, Shapeless, shot-riddled, naked, grim, Rope-fastened to a twisted limb. An alien fruit v as stark as jet Amid white blossoms April-wet; A fruit that ripened in a night To satisfy lust's appetite, ' my lefthanded friend pointed out that they are likely to make mistakes even when they know better, because they write backwards from right to left naturally, and when they have to correct it, the letters come in the order they naturally would to them. It is a kind of written stuttering. And. of course, stuttering has frequently been associated with changing a left-handed person over to right-handedness. What exactly all these mechanisms are we don't know and, as a matter of fact, there is no certainty that they do exist. But along the same lines is the report from a Los Angeles psychologist about a boy who was sent to her by the school authorities. They wanted a mental rating on him because he could not learn to read. She found he was stupid so far as education is concerned, but about common knowledge he was quite bright, and sent him back with the remark that she thought he could be taught to read. After further trial they again sent him to her, saying they would like to see her demonstrate her ability to teach him to read. She tried every known method to get him to read, without success— different colored cards with letters on them—everything. Finally one day when she had about given up, shs picked up a card and he said, "I know what that word is—land." So it was, and she had to rack her brains to think what she had done with him on that word 1 that she had done on none of the others. Finally it came to her—she had made- him trace the letters on the blackboard, ever and over, his hand in hers, saying the word over as he did it. After that his progress was rapid. He simply had the kind of a mind that is kinesthetic, that learns by the impress of muscular movements. EARLIER DAYS FROM GLOBE-GA'lETTE FILES OBSERVING Thirty Years Ajro— G. vV.

LEANING OVER BACKWARDS S EE THAT fellow over there? ... No, not the little man with tile stick-out jaw. I mean that tall, handsome, dapper one with the flower in his buttonhole. You see him, do you? . . . Well, let me confess something—I don't like him. It's- difficult for me to explain why I don't. After all, I can't like everybody, can I? Thfii-e's no law, is there, Compelling me to gush over everybody I know? You know very'well that isn't possible. . . . Well, I don't like that fellow. He annoys me'. It's something about his manner, the way he .walks, the way he talks, the sort of human being he is. Yes, I know he has plenty of friends who do like him. But some- tiling happened betwesn -us the first time we met and ever since then we've both worn invisible chips on our shoulders. We clash. . , . Perhaps he doesn't know it, but I do. It's very annoying and-1 confess I don't like it. ... The trouble is that, my dislike cramps my style. Too many people iaiow I don't agree with him, so I must watch my step. . . . I'm forced to lean over backwards. ... I can pick my friends to pieces but I can't ^ that to him. I can't criticize him in the slightest because if I do someone will say, "Oh, that's because you don't like him". . . . But it wouldn't always be true. Now there's Bill. . . . He's my friend, and everybody knows'I liice him. And I can say anything I think about him and nobody will misunderstand me. They'll know that my affection for Bill is broad enough and deep enough to take all of him in—as is his, I- hope, for me. But I have to be so doggoned fair-minded and considerate in everything I say about that fellow with .the flower on his coat, that it makes me uncomfortable and I don't like it a bit. . . . Apd leaning over backwards so much gives me a'crick in tee back. So I suppose we'll have to be friends. I'll ask him.-to do a favor for me, and that might break the. wintry ice, between us. ... I hope it works. Only One Unsolved Kidnaping on Books ' have always felt that the federal government's campaign against kidnapers was the best example that could be cited of government efficiency in its highest form. A few days ago a dispatch came out of Tucson, Ariz., to the effect that department of justice operatives have completed their 32 month investigation of the June Robles kidnaping case, the last one of its land on the books. Many will remember how this 6 year old youngster was kid- naped in the southwest and kept hidden for' days in the desert without, food or water, left only a bit of metal to shield her from the sun. From the day of her abduction, April 25, 1934, until the bureau of investigation had completed its report to the grand jury this week, G-men were on the job unceasingly. This is the last kidnap case on the books; all others have been solved. It is a record of which Director J. Edgar Hoover and his federal bureau of investigation men can be justly proud. A Set of Comfort Tips for Christmas Shoppers know of no better way to do my daily good deed than to pass along to North lowans this set of Christmas shopping tips prepared by Dr. Jerome Schattner, an eminent physiotherapist: 1. Wear a good pair of comfortable shoes. 2. If you buy a pair of new shoes during the course of your shopping trip, do not wear them out of the store. 3. Walk correctly by having your heels touch the ground first, rath your weight balanced on them. 4. When you carry bundles, don't try to put them all under one arm. Balance yourself placing an equal weight in each arm. 5. When window shopping, don't dash along the street, twisting to see the displays. Come to a complete stop in front of the interesting window and avoid the strain of twisting and turning. 6. Wear comfortable, loose clothing rather than anything tight-fitting. 7. Make a complete list before you leave home, to save uneces- sary trips. 8. Save steps by knowing where you're going instead of wandering aimlessly. 9.1 Don't plan too much for one day. •:• A Clew M U Why We Are Silent on "Xmai" insist this department should be given a little credit for having come down to within 10 days of Christmas without once objecting to the use of "Xmas." Of course the reason for this may be found in this article clipped from "Phat's Phun" column hv'the Luverne News: "One of our pet peeves in the bygone years has been the word 'Xmas.' As Paul Davis once said at Waterloo 'Christ never spelled, his name with an X.' But Sunday we were listening to the 'Better English' hour and we found that 'Xmas' is now perfectly proper and allowable. So that is that and we are making no comments. "Also, we found that not one person in a thousand pronounces the word carburetor properly. Look it up and see if you don't believe it "We hoped to be able to improve our English, but most of the words brought up for discussion were such we would be accused of going high hat if \vr should dare to use them—if ws ccn\d spell them. So we.figured it was 15 minutes wasted." Have You Noted the Traffic Light Change? am considerably in discount as an "eye observing" with one eye specialist in Mason City. "Have yod noticed the new designations on our downtown traffic lights?" he. asked me recently. "What do you mean?" I had to ask. "I mean the 'stop', 'caution 1 and 'go' lettering across the lenses of the red, amber and the green lights." And I remembered, rath-er vaguely, that there had been some such change since the lights we're brought back into use following the opening'of the Federal avenue pavement. Know what the purpose of the change Is? It's inte.-e5ting. One out of every two hundred or so drivers is color blind. Red and green don't mean a thing to them. And this step was taken largely with these drivers in mind.
