Slue should be given the usual second term that is customary with Iowa governors, but that man Olm- sled, his opponent for the republican, nomination, is on the stump now early and late picking flaws in Gov. Blue's record as governor, or rather his lack of record, as Olmste'cl puts it. Olmste'd is a lighter and these politicians can usually find sdtne- tliing to hang onto a man who has been in office for a number of years. Of course Olmsted, who is recognized as fine timber for governor, has no record in public office that he is obliged to defend. His only record, outside his 'private business affairs, is his four years of army record, which is all to his credit. It is understood that Olmsted will bu the strongest in Des Moines where he has lived his life and is best known. On the other hand Blue, whose home is Eagle Grove, finds Des Moines rc.ther antagonistic to his candidacy. Des Moines is said to want a governor who is more liberal than Gov. Blue on the wet and dry issue, which will be in the forefront of the questions to be solved by the next Iowa legislature. Blue is said to be a bone dry advocate. However all this may be, a recent survey .made by the Des Moines Register among republicans of the state, showed that Gov. Blue was preferred over Olmsted by 45 per cent of those interviewed, to 2} per cent who named Olmsted as first choice, and 34 per cent were undecided. This would seem to mean a great deal of indecision and may mean almost anything. To us it seems that all that the democratic nominee, Maj. Frank Miles, has to do is to sit on the side lines and wait' for the republican candidates^? kill themselves off. Then after;.they , have showfl up all of each other's weak points he will step in at the November election and grab the governorship plum. Hurrah for Frank Miles, Cause of Clothing Shortage ',Amongst the many things that have worried the American people since and during the war was inability to buy men's clothes of all kinds, antl it has been claimed that clothing manufacturers ha,ve held off the market hundreds of thousands of men's and boys suits, shirts and other men's wearing apparel. It was charged that price ceilings ^ adopted by the O. P. A. were so low that clothing manufacturers could realize little, if any profit. So the clothing all ready for the market was packed away in warehouses while the men of the country were unable to cover their nakedness which was not only embarrassing but in some cases became frostbitten. Now it develops that at least some of the'lack of clothes cannot be laid entirely to the low ceiling . prices. Over at Danville, Illinois, the other 'd<Jy a 70-year old man listed by the police as a Anight of 1he opan road during a routine investigation,^ removed from his person ten pair of trousers'and overalls, ten coats and jacket, ten shirts, four, caps, TAX SPEECH WILL BEAR ANALYSIS Indianola .Tri'bune: At Carroll the other dayi Gov. Robert D. Blue while on a stumping tour in ' the • interest of his candidacy in the primary rac'e for governor, made a tax speech which will bear careful analysis. It should be analyzed because of its bearing on his own record as governor. The sources of ' taxes is one thing and Mr. 'Blue's record as governor is something entirely different. What the .voters want to know is what kind of a record Mr. Blue has made as governor. ' In his Carroll speech, Gov. Blue told how Iowa saves property owners 35 million dollars a year. That statement is a compliment to the late Gov. Clyde L. Herring and former Gov. Nels Kraschel, under whose a'dmiVlistrritions the source of these saving's sprang. Nearly all of that 35 million dollars is saved as n'reSUlt Of Gov. Herring's three-point tax bill, including a tax on corporations, the three-cent Sales' lax, income from the liquor monopoly and so I on'. Practically none ot it 'was saved as a result •Of anything that Gov. Blue 'has done while in office. He told his Carroll listeners that the general fund returned 15 million dollars a year to home •owners in the form op homestead tax credits. Now .Mr. Blue 'had nothing to do with the homestead tax credit law. It was passed under the Kraschel 'administration and was fought by members of Gov. Blue's own party. This homestead tax credit 'law'has nothing to-do with Mr.'Blue's record as governor. Out of the three-point tax money and the liquor monopoly also comes the state's ten million hrilf of old age assistance as pointed out by the governor at Carroll. But that money for old, age assistance has nothing to do with the record of Mr. Blue as governor. A few weeks ago/one of Gov. Blue's appointees, the comptroller o'f the currency, announced a state treasury balance of 62 million dollars. Of cburse the taxpayers are pleased at the state's sound financial condition. But much if not most of that balance resulted : from the three-point tax law. Some of it was inherited by the Blue administration from Wilson and Hir:kenlooner while ihpv were governors of Iowa. That balance has little or nothing to do with Mr. Blue's record as governor. And just what is Mr. Blue's record as governor? He attended a conference of governors to kill an MVA and thev may have got the job done, which is of doubtful value. He called a conference of governors of 16 states to solve the housing pit nation and provide homes for veterans and civilians and it amounted to exactly nothing. The Elclora scandal came out durins his administration and voters am entitled to feel certain that their novernnr should know what is haopeneing in stato institutions. But to incorporate in his own record the accomplishments of previous administrations, and that was the imnlication of his Carroll speech, is an indication of the vacousness of his own administration. • u.,.,. • .,>..A •'•:•.•••• . ; •• .;?..:•* 1 tete» k 'ft J, Government Loss On War Seizure. Creston 'News-Advertiser: The Roosevelt seizure of the Montgomery Ward plants has finally been ended. It was an expensive political experiment, just as all his political ventures were. The government lost $1.200,000 while operating the stores, and the cost '(0 the army for personnel was $450.000 more, and that's not all. In addition, the employes were promised $785,089 in back pay out of'profits, but! there were no profits, and the army has no appropriation out of which to' pay the retroactive wages, and that's that—a complete flop. 'Today the situation is exactly what it was when the property was itaken over; the company will not compel its employes to join a union, and it will not deduct the union rake-off from the weekly nay checks. It is'Up to the employes to say whether they will vote a new strike or stay put. „ Statesman Or Politician. Belmond Independent: The difference 'between a statesman and a politician is this: A statesman asks himself this ciuestion: Is this legislation good for the people? The 'politician asks himself which way should I vote to get the most votes come next election. Come next election the statesman gets elected 1o -stay home and the politician gets sent back to Washington. interest aroused bV shave! ai&jlnt'a Hoi*.
