It not only isn't half done now but it never will be completed, in the opinion of Fred R. White, chief engineer for the Iowa statt highway commission, expressed in a letter to us prompted by the editorial in question. "With all the magnificent systems of highways -,ve now have.'' Mr. White observed, "I am certainly happy to know that at least one person in the state "realizes the job' is not half done. As a matter of fact, the job of building highways in this state never will be done, any more than that the city of Mason City will some day be completed. '•Vast increases in traffic have gone hand in hand in this state with the construction of a system of paved highways. Not only has the number of vehicles increased; the weights have increased, speed has increased, and our economic structure and daily lives have been rebuilt around the proposition of every day use of the highways. "All of these economic and social developments call for further development of the highways. Safety measures must be provided, additional roads must be constructed, and all of the thousands and one things which are required to keep pace with the ever-changing conditions of highway transport, will have to be provided; and, lest we forget, it should be related here that these highways whicn have been constructed are not permanent. They are of durable construction, they will last for a long period of years, but they will inevitably reach the point where they must be reconstructed. "If we should proceed on the theory- that our highway system is finished or nearly finished, and if after having launched ourselves on this fallacious theorv. we should proceed to fritter away our funds we will some day inevitably wake up to the fact that our highway system must be rebuilt, and \ve will then again have to float bond issues for such reconstruction. , "If on the other hand, we will keep oui leei. on the ground and our eyes glued to the truth, then we will conserve these highway funds for the pui- poses for which they were intended. We will be Pble to pay off our present bond issues. From there on we will be able :o carry on our necessary safety construction, reconstruction, and extension of our highway system from current revenues. On an occasion or two in the past this newspaper has observed that if a monument were to be erected for the one living Io\van who has performed the greatest service for hi;; commonwealth, Mr. White would be the one we would nominate for the honor The construction of Iowa's superior highway system has been performed with honesty, efficiency and vision. Mr, White's has been the guiding hand. He had the capacity for looking into the future twenty or twenty-five years ago when Iowa began its unified and integrated highway progran-.. The viewpoint set forth here convinces us that there is still a vision behind the administration of Iowa's unsurpassed highway system. ^ ^,-m., • More French Regrets "Therefore, desirous of promising only what i' vill be able to perform, the French government regrets profoundly that the distressing economic depression which the country has just undergone and the state of world economic rela- ditions do not permit it as yet to present any ic- mittance on account." "tO READS the customary debt default note which ^ French Ambassador Andre de Laboulaye handed Acting Secretary of State R. Walten Moore at Washington a few days ago. France's note contained no hint of an invitation to negotiate for settlement of France's 4 billion dollar war debt, such as has been discussed informally by Ambassador William C Bullitt in Paris and Yvon Delbos, the French finance minister. France and 12 other defaulting European war debtors now owe the United States some 12 billion dollars. Twice each year 12 of the 13 war debtors politely present the state department with notes expressing their profound regret that they cannot pay anything. Of the 13 powers which on Dec. 15 were supposed to pay America 155 millions, only Finland deposited 5213,315 as its portion. All others like France, did not find it expedient to make payment or proposals. With billions being spent each year abroad for armaments and armies for future wars, there is no suggestion of payment for past wars. The continual default of continental countries may yet prove a blessing, however. With another war in the making, these defaulted debts may well prevent America from financing the next world war. If these obstacles had been put in the path of the United States in the years 1914 to 1917, history would be written differently. In case of a crisis, no European country need look to America for financial help now. -» i • Mr. Robeson Forgets S OME folk are a bit past understanding. There's Paul Robeson, Negro singer, by way of example. Mr. Robeson more than anybody we can call to mind at the moment has found America the land of opportunity. The door was opened for him to a degree in an eastern university, where he was honored for his exploits on athletic field and in music auditorium. The American music-loving public has embraced Mm as a man of great musical talent Hollywood had a place for him. The concert stage beckoned to him. Wealth has come to him in large measure. In the lace of all this, it's 'a bit difficult to understand Mr. Robeson's attitude toward this, the country and the government which have been so lavish with him. This was revealed in a recent news dispatches to the effect that, as a great admirer of the soviet system of government, Mr. Robeson is placing his 9 year old son ,Paul, Jr., in a Russian school. Russia, according to Mr. Robeson, is the only country in which the lad can hope to "escape the prejudices and struggles which he faced as a youth." / Mr. Robeson remembers the gall but he appears jJomDletefr to have forgotten the .sweet in hig_life. What happened in the case of. the war debts should be a permanent reminder what may happen 'If America ever again assumes an honor and integrity in the European nations—except Finland. A determination on the part of Iowa's motoring public to stand solid against any diversion of the gasoline tax receipts would be far more effective than any constitutional amendment. It develops now that there was no lack of money for the promoters of the state basketball tournament. But the losing teams had to catch the next train home. If Ham Fish is sincere in what he says, there's a place for him in the democratic party; if he isn't, there's no place for him in either party. Whatever other shortcomings he may have, the archbishop of Canterbury isn't going to be accused of ladling out weasel words. There's been a veritable flurry of outside-of- lowa football coaches addressing Iowa high school athletic banquets this fall. Making it a merry Christmas for somebody else is the most reliable guarantee for making it a merry Christmas for one's self. PROS and CONS GLENN FRANK APPRAISED Daily lowan (University of Iowa): Dr, Frank's chief crime seems to be that he is not a yard-long liberal and is a couple of feet short of conservatism. Hence he is friendless. Even the students didn't like him up to the current crisis. Outsiders criticize him because he approves schemes that would reorpanize our economic system and place it on a mere liberal basis. It is worth pointing out a few recognized achievements of the man. In 1334 his university was ranked ahead of Harvard, Yale and others in the number of fields in which it is qualified to give graduate instruction. This is a laudable honor. His experimental college, while not wholly successful, pointed the way to reforms that many universities have accomplished in the past five years. He is one of our better authors, having numerous books and magazine articles to his credit. Only a few of them have been on the subject of educa- Numerous great men regard him as one of the nation's outstanding leaders. II. G. Wells paid this compliment to Frank. when he was in the United States four years ago. "I am going to Wisconsin to see my friend Glenn Frank, because Wisconsin is a place where education still exists," Those are kind words, whether his estimate ol Wisconsin is right or wrong. Again, it may be that Dr Frank came nearer the truth when he admitted. "After all, I am only a journalist on parole. AMONG THE G. O. P. MISTAKES J M Grimes in Osceola Sentinel: Another criticism' often heard in the campaign was the action of the state convention in turning down L. ^. iv- ans for railroad commissioner, who polled a large plurality of votes over other primary candidates One was nominated who received far less votes It is no reflection on the candidate nominated. He was qualified and a good citizen. But the fact that a coterie of practical politicians could control a sufficient number of votes in a convention to reverse what has come to be almost a precedent in giving the nomination to the one having the outstanding lead in the primary gave rise to the suspicion there was too much utility in the soup. And the suspicion might have been well founded. WE'RE CURIOUS ABOUT THIS TOO Iowa Legionaire: After midnight our car radio will bring in broadcasts from several stations in Mexico, just across the Texas border, in which appeals are made by fortune tellers, mail order physicians and oil promoters. Fervently we hope that no "bonus" money goes for any dizzy looks into the future, quack prostate and ca'ncer cures and fortunes for racketeers . . If these propositions were any good, they could be put on the air from American stations. Why does our government permit these ether thieves to receive mail at nearby American post- offices, and why doesn't Uncle Sam tell the Mexican president to cut 'em offor else? G. O. P. VICTORY WASN'T IN CARDS Berry F. Halden in Chariton Herald-Patriot: No leadership—no matter how strong and vigorous— could have led the republican party to victory in the November election. With the great mass of Americans in their present temper two strikes were callec on the G. O. P. before it came time for the batter to walk up to the plate. The temper of the people will change, as it has always changed. The heroes of today are forgotten tomorrow when a new hero comes along, and John Hamilton and the leadership that gains its vigor from the wholcsomencss of the western plains is ideally adapted to uncover tomorrow's hero. SOAKED EITHER WAY Algona Advance: Mr. Kraschel is expected to urge repeal of the head tax for old age pensions and, instead, diversion of six millions or so of sales tax receipts to the old age fund. The poor who pay head or sales tax get soaked in either case for they are not taxed according to ability to pay The Kraschel scheme, too, is a proposal for another violation of the promise that sales tax receipts would be devoted to relief of property taxation. WOULD EXPAND HIGHWAY PATROL Cherokee Daily Times: The next general assembly is to be asked to provide for expansion of the state highway patrol from 53 to 100 patrolmen. The system so far has found much favor with the public though it has been inadequate to cover the entire primary system with any degree of thoroughness. There is much sentiment favorable to expansion so long as the patrol is kept out of politics A DEMOCRATIC VIEW OF LANDON Decorah Journal: Alf Landon has shown gooc sportsmanship during and after the election, has shown he is a big enough man to take criticism and defeat with his chin up and maintain his smile As a man we admire the position he has taken since the election. A good politician must be big to take as well as give criticism. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG THE INTER-DEPENDENCE OF MEN MESERVEY—Unselfishness is not one of the common attributes of mankind, inasmuch as self- preservation and self-perpetuation loom large on man's horizon. There is a contemporary trend to organize into groups and classes and this, we believe, is not a cause for national jubilation. We like to believe that we, and the group to which we belong, are indispensable and that we by reason of occupation or trade are ..entitled to a preferred status. Organizers almost invariably appeal to groups on that basis. But we have all been placed here by the Creator and He has a place for all. Admittedly farmers occupy one of the "key positions" in our economic life. But imagine the helplessness of farmers'without tools made by the hands of craftsmen. Who would desire a "civilization" in which, because of lack of tools, we would have to dig a hole in the ground with bare hands or a broken stick? In modern "geared" society no one is the whole gear, but may be a good 'Tog."

Instead of its being disrespectful in any way, it is a pious custom in its origin, which comes about in this way: "The letter X, being the initial letter of the name 'Christ' in the Greek language, has always been used more or less to denote that name among Christian peoples. When the Latin word 'missa' had taken the form 'mass,' affording a variety of combinations, among them 'Christmas,' it was inevitable that 'Xmas' should result. "'Xmas,' then, is a form used originally by persons having special veneration for the Sacred name. It is still so used, it would seem, in the majority of instances."

Thinks License Plate Should Describe Driver am interested—but not ^ quite persuaded — by a suggestion recently put forward by the Kewanee. 111., Star-Courier to make - license plates tell a little about the past driving record of the person to whom it is issued. "Why shouldn't a driver who has suffered no accidents in five years carry a star atop his license number as a reward for safe driving?" the editorial inquires.

CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION DIET and HEALTH By LOGAN CLENOENING. M. D. LOCAL, PARTICULAR NAIL ILLS T HE finger nails not only respond to general diseases in the body, as described yesterday, but they are subject to their own local and particular diseases. One of these is hypertrophy of the nails, or overgrowth of the nail plate in any direction. The nails become thickened, curved and clawlike. It is more likely to affect the nail of the great toe than any others. It usually is associated with other skin diseases such as psoriasis, ;czema and occupation dermatitis. Some nervous diseases also cause it and it may result from injury. In treatment the horny masses underneath the nail plates can be dissolved out by a solution of sodium hydrate or a milder remedy, salicylic acid. Atrophy of the nails also occurs. It may occur in all the nails of both the fingers and toes. The nails become smaller and lose Dr. Clendenini their elasticity and luster. The surface may be marked by pits or depressions. Most of the cases are congenital and hereditary, although sometimes they are due to infection or injury. Little can be done to aid most of these cases, although the use of arsenic has sometimes resulted in benefit. A curious phenomenon is., the periodical shedding of all the nails. It usually' occurs in nervous and neurotic individuals. Milder instances may take the form of loosening of all the nails, just like a loose tooth, although, unlike a loose tooth, they sometimes tighten up again. Brittle, rough nails, with more or less uncomfortable inflammation around the nail beds, usually are due to infection of the nail bed, and usually with some fungus similar to ringworm, though pus infections and yeast infections are quite common. This is the commonest cause of unsightly finger nails. The ringworm is much the, same as that which causes athlete's foot, although this usually occurs in the finger nails. It is easy to see how the finger nails could be infected this way, because a spot of athlete's foot will.readily infest them, and ringworm is carried from one to many parts of the body usually by the patient's own finger nails. Treatment is usually successful, although it requires a good deal of patience because results do not occur usually in less than a year's time. Soaking the fingers in hot soapsuds and then soaking them in some antiseptic like a moderately strong potassium permanganate solution, then dipping them in oxalic acid solution to prevent staining, and coating the nails with full strength Whitfield's ointment, has been highly recommended. It may have to be kept up for some time before results begin to appear. ALL OF US By MARSHALL MASLIN WE PAINT A PICTURE H IGH up there above the street I see a little man painting a big picture on a space at least a hundred feet long. He cannot see all that he is doing. He cannot step back from it to plan and correct his brush work . . . All he can do is paint a little space at a fyme, working from a plan thnt was made before he ever ascended to that height and began his work. Day after day I watch him, seeing him add square foot to square foot of his picture until at last his job is done and he takes away his boards, his ladders, his paint pots and brushes and goes off to another job . . . Then I stop craning my neck. He, working, interested me. What he has done matters very little to me. But whenever I see those little men working so close to big pictures, I think of how many human beings live so close to their jobs that they do not know what they are doing. They do not know the picture they are painting. Day after day, they do their jobs, follow their impulses, carry out their little designs, obey orders from within and from without, suffer little defeats, win little victories, do not know WHAT they are doing. They are painting pictures that other men, far off, can see, but they are too close to know what each brush stroke is accomplishing on the canvas of their lives. There are men living mean lives who would not live so-meagerly if they could get away from themselves and see what they are doing . . , There are men living lives .of quiet heroism who are not even dimly aware of it (and would be no bejjer off if they were) . . . We are all painting pictures, ; but EARLIER DAYS FBOM GLOBE-GAZETTE FILES Thirty Years Ago— B. B. Hicks of Jamestown, N. Dak., is visiting relatives in the city over the holidays. Mr. and Mrs. A. H.

That was the sentence pronounced today by Judge M. H. Kepler, after he had overruled the motion of the defendant for another trial. WASHINGTON—Rear Admiral Latimer, who landed American bluejackets at Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, yesterday and proclaimed a neutral zone today advised the state department that he had notified the Nicaraguan government forces recently defeated by liberal troops that they would be disarmed if forced into the Bluefields neutral zone. Mr and Mrs. L. F. Robinson and son Lyman of Minneapolis, Hardin Daniels of Danvers. 111.. Mrs. William A. Palmer of Aurora, 111., and Mrs. Jacooy of Lincoln, Nebr., are holiday visitors in the city. Baltimore will satisfy the American lust for thrills lor a time. The girl, Gladys Cote by name, was clawed terribly before she could be rescued and she died later in a hospital. Why the public likes this sort of thing can't be explained in any rational way. Neither people nor science is aided by such hairbreadth performances. They simply demonstrate to what lengths some performers are willing to go in their desire to please audiences.
