The whole subject of popular government is brought ID for review. A principal mark of the American system of government has been the specific defining by constitution of the three branches of government, Esch was explicitly endowed with certain powers and to the states was reserved all powers not expressly sranted to the central government. In the past four years tl ere has been an unprecedented leadership of congress by the chief You explain—we can't—why it is that our sob- sisters of both sexes nave so much more concern for the killer than for the family of the person who got killed. The monument Iowa house republicans might build for their confrere, Albert Beltman of Hospers, would look strangely like a tombstone. The Methodist church is the only organization in America that has sponsored more Boy Scout troops than the American Legion. Some will say that it was'just a case of Wisconsin not being big enough for two ambitious men. Some brides cry to get things out of their systems; others to get things out of their husbands. All eyes are on Nebraska's new, streamlined, one-house, all-male legislature. Young Feller, you'd better be good! Referring to Bob, of course. Where are the liberals of yesteryear? Ask Glenn Frank.

Wis., Reporter: When the president attacked the practice of tenant-farming in his congressional address, he must have caused many thoughtful men to think back of that picture and realize thnt. the reason for most of the tenancy dis- call upon the supreme court to destroy its own functions is the proper remedy.

That threw millions of share-croppers—tenant farmers—out of work, and gave the country the problem which the president asks congress to solve. The cotton curtailment program was entered upon to absorb a surplus, really at the expense of the tenants. Now- the president proposes to spend a lot of tax monej' to put the tenants on mortgaged not decided upon a course But ;C the supreme court does not yield obedience, he will have but two courses open, short of surrender of his own policies: first, the use of his executive power to en- f?rce laws over the constitutional ban of the court; second, proposal of the amendments necessary to permit his policies full function. It should be noted that while he has not proposed an amendment, he has not definitely said he would not. A Ban on Alien Marriages A LMOST from the beginning of the American consular service, marriage between our government's representatives nnd the citizens of the country in which they are stationed has been a problem. And a real problem it is too for the reason that such marriages invite, if indeed they do not compel, a dT.idcd loyalty <-:i the part of these consular employes who should, be 100 per cent loyal to the United States I thcm to P ut lhcm on a hcavll - v in debt to the government or anybody else, before they have learned the farming business and proved they know WH.-VT ARE WE GOING TO DO? Sheffield Press: The statistics will be rather gruesome but, in a few weeks, you will hear that the year 1936 set a new record in the number of lives snuffed out on the highways of America, where millions of sensible citizens pursue the great god speed when they sit behind a steering wheel.

But alas, the best diplomats—'he most accomplished peace-keepers—are invariably husbands of the other sort." Now that the election and the serious issues raised daring the campaign arc well past, newspapers have space to give to questions no more far-reaching in their effect than the one here considered.

A Business Pioneer Passes TWTASON CITY has I-ecn saddened this week by **^ the passing of one nf its most Invrd and revered business pioneers. Charles W. Damon ramc to Mason Civ, ,icar the turn of the century. He not only saw V -it was an important part of Mason City's evolution from jast another little county seat town to the flourishing business and industrial center of today. In business he was known as a :;quareshooter. In civic affairs he was guided by the ruls o£ supporting that which he believed to be for the good of Mason City. In his individual capacity he was a good neighbor and a true friend. The decision to perpetuate his name in the business house he had helped establish and develop was a genuine testimonial to the fine reputation he bore. His passing is another impressive m?'.iireslation of the march of time. On the fingers of one hand one could count the men still doing business at the old «tand whose period of activity coincided with or exceeded that of Charlie Damon. He lived in an interesting and important era; his was an uncommonly fruitful life. EDITOR'S MAIL BA& It's a choice recomrnenaation for O. J. Ditto that his neighbors of northwest Iowa seem unanimous in their dssire for his reappointment as state highway commission chairman. THE FORMER KING AND MRS. SIMPSON (By an English born resident of Mason City) MASON CITY—I take this opportunity, having been asked several times, to express py views on the most discussed incident in a decade, namely the abdication of the former King Edward the VIII of England and his contemplated marriage with Mrs. Wally Simpson. While there are some persons who look upon this incident as a diplomatic geslure, I firmly believe that Mr. and Mrs. Wally Simpson and the former King Edward of England ,came to a perfect understanding on the common laws of nature and I rather think the former King Edward believed he had found the one woman of his choice. Personally I admire him for his courage and self sacrifice. He laid his cards fairly and squarely on the table, and the Americans believe in the pursuit of happiness. By abdicating the English throne, the former King Edward of England made it possible for the new King George VI, his brother, to ascend the English throne and to reign over all English subjects and all of her dominions. The former King Edward VIII in his own words remarked, "My brother will make a better king than I." Open confession is good for the soul. I sincerely hope the former King Edward VIII of England and Mrs. Wally Simpson will be very happy and that the incident, sooner or later, will be like a closed book with history written on every page. She, Mrs. Wally Simpson, an American, he the former King Edward VIII, an Englishman. And while discussing the relationship between these two notables, I pray there may never be a broken link in the chain of friendship which now exists between these two great English speaking nations. America, like the Statue of Liberty, stands out as a beacon light, directing, guiding and pointing the way to a true world democracy. And while I have more than a spark of love for the land of my birth, I thank God for America. And I shall strive at all times to be a true and loyal American citizen. JOHN A. MILLS. , PATIENT CAN AID IN RECOVERY now and then I meet a patient for •E' whom 12 or 15 years ago I prescribed a regime of exercise or diet, and when I find he is still following it, 1 am frankly amazed at his constancy —sometimes even more astonished at the excellence of the results that have followed." says the author of an interesting work on the "Art of Treatment, 1 ' just published. I can confirm the observation out of my own experience, and yet 1 still stand in astonishment before it. First, I am astonished at its rarity. Why shouldn't it happen all the time? Here are people who come to a doctor with grievous and intricate things the matter with them. It takes the doctor some time to discover them all: He uses the resources of centuries of scientific discovery to do so. Then he outlines the most successful methods of righting the matter: Only it must be continued for a long time. Dr. Clendeninj All this costs money. The patient pays his hard earned money, tries the diet or regimen for a while, feels better, feels well enough not to be worried any more, and drops it. I suppose it's human nature. Our fellow creatures can be screwed up to follow a plan of treatment for a while.. They wiil submit to nearly anything so its over soon and promises immediate relief—a surgical operation, X-ray treatment, some dental work, two weeks of hot baths at the springs, a course of injections in the veins—but for the long pull, they stay on the diet,, or whatever it is. until they feel some improvement, and then they want to forget the doctor and the treatment. Just as astonishing is our astonishment at how a diet works if it is persisted in long enough. As doctors, we are often just as skeptical as the layman about the value of continuing on a diet. That is because we have so seldom had an opportunity of'seeing it given a chance. We so seldom see anyone who follows it out over the length of time required. Sometimes you find wisdom and strength of character in the most unexpected places. The author of "The Art of Treatment" tells the story of a Negro with diabetes who had become £ugar- free on a diet, and his doctor wanted to increase his starch allowance. The patient said, "No, sir, boss, I'd rather eat what I'm eatin' now. I felt so feeble and po'ly when I eaten biscuits and hominy, I'd rather eat what I'm eatin' now." I wish I could get all the diabetic patients I know to understand that point of view. A sweet dessert may tempt them, and they do riot seem to realize that it docs them no good at all: It goes right through and is never used in nutrition. They would starve to death on it because the body cannot use it. When patients "give down" to the treatment and really begin to use it, they invariably feel better. Like Charles Keene's bus drivers. "How's Jim?" says one to the other. "Oh! Better now," is the reply. "He's takin' his lotions regular now. Some can never get up enough resolution to take a cure at home, no matter how simply it can be arranged, and hence have to go to sanitaria or springs or special health resorts. At such places, where everyone is taking the cure, it is hard not to fall in line. This is their great advantage.
