AMEItlt A'S ABILITY TO IMV THE 1VAK ItKIIT. Emil Schram, president of the New York Stork Exchange, in an address delivered before the Nashville, Tenn.. Chamber of Commerce recently, said among other things, that America can nnd will pay the debt of the World War II and her legitimate Share of the expenses of the reconstruction of the nations of the world. Mr. Schram based his belief on the American ability to meet obstacles, (he power of her creative forces, and the strength of the profit motive of our people. He believes that the period following the war will Hie the greatest demand in the history of the nation. That is, he believes that the country will be on a "starved" market so far as production for the citizens is concerned, and that given money to buy with and freedom to create, our people will keep tho factories humming and the masses employed, nnd that prosperity will be with us in such a force that we will be able to handle the war debt and the resultant expenses of reconstruction. His statemetR logical, plausible and undoubtedly true. He sees but one cloud in the after- war sky, nnd that is the handicapping of industry and regimentation of Initiative. He sees a clear way ahead if industry in permitted to function. He thinks we will have everything necessary if we are permitted to resume our way of life as we have known them In the past or following the former World War. To his mind the ability that private industry is exhibiting turning out war munitions is proof of Us capacity. Here let us digress a moment: There have been repeated warnings from government agencies against speaking of or considering the after-war period. This paper is not in sympathy With them. It believes that every patriotic American should keep posted on pre-war conditions and causes, present progress of the war in all Its details, and the conditions that will confront us after peace has been declared. That is the only manner in which Americans can be well enough informed to vote intelligently and to express themselves in a constructive way relative to national doings. .We should be in hearty sympathy with the thought that no one should see calamity ahead and ~ \4° , make his neighbors and friends see it in a K e |.ijp., cause discouragement. But a man is (ish Indeed who'does not consider the end of the f he Is traveling. Mr.. Schram believes that following the war j* the restrictions that we have willingly assumed for the period of the conflict will be lifted. Ho says in part! 1 say in all seriousness that this is the only method by which we can meet the cost of this war, solve our post-war economic ^ problenis, resume our progress as a nation and thus re-open to our people the opportunities which are our birthright. Individual corporations are performing prodigious feats at this time. There production is the lous feats at this time. Their production Is the enemy and gratification to our people, it spells victory. There is reason to agree with Mr. Schram. Kadi war in the world's history has bi-on tolluwPd by :i period of prosperity. The war of 1812 freed tho seas to American commerce. The war between thf states was followed by the industrial development Of the west. The period following; the first World War showed the greatest prosperity in our national history. The depression that followed would not have been so severe if it had been understood and the proper steps taken to meet it. Then the patriotic American has only to see that the period following the present war must witness the return of free enterprise and thf profit system, and the release of business and the people from national domination, or regimentation. In short, wo can meet conditions if we arc permitted to function as our form of government intends we shall. It IP true that we have an eleinent that would prater to keep the nation regimented. That is our fight—to regain, the liberitiea our forefathers gave us. SENATOR GILLETTE TELLS 'KM Iowa's Senator Guy M. Gillette was, by . practice and at heart, a farmer before he became a senator. He owns a farm near Cherokee, which he expects to make his home when he Jays aside the cares of his high office. Meantime, the senator's first band knowledge ct agricultural economy and his understanding of the farmer's problems will to serve him well as a legislator. of Senator Gillette's chief concerns been the uneconomic policy of ^ie* in the eastern states to profess a|n WHi Other products of the west- --He would simplify the whole raw materials and redistributing by ^locating such in, B«m:««3 of material sup- had better material With ftnfcn to wofk tnfefi came to His hand diSHrig the debate on a bill to locate a number of Industrial ajfeohoi plants In th* middle west. fhe lowan called attention to the fact that Iowa grain Is being shipped to Massachusetts—at. a cost of 41 cents per 100 pounds—for conversion Into alcohol which then Is shipped back to Indiana for use as solvents in an ammunition factory. But that, the senator said, was only part of the grain, the rich protein contents of the residue—about 17 pounds to the bushel of grain—is being poured down sewers, whereaf it should be used to increase the supply of beef and pork which the United States nnd its allies need. In addition, he said, the practice imposes a two-way haul upon a railroad systein thnt Is already overtaxed. The senator Is right, of course, but it IP not a new practice of which he complains. It Is n practice that has given the six prin- clpal industrial states virtually complete financial, economic nnd political domination of the nation. All attempts by middle western nnd western people to break up these practices have failed. Despite the worthy efforts of Senator Gillette and other statesmen who share his views, they probably will fail In this instance. The power of the opposition is too great. The people of those areas which suffer most from the effect? of these unemonomlc practices long have hoped thnt some day the country would come to Its senses nnd correct these obvious abuses. Possibly that will happen—some day. Tint it won't happen until selfish Interests can be brought to realize that they are standing in their own light by Impeding the progress and Ftifllng the welfare of their own customers and all business enterprise.—Sioux City Tribune- Journal. The fact that Iowa has not been able to secure any of the alcohol plants that the government Is instrumental in establishing is significant. It Is a condtlon seen all too plainly by Senator Gillette and the people of Iowa. Very evidently the great corporations have a hand in the location and for obvious reasons want the factories where they wil furnish the most aid to them. It may be that. b> tnnkini: the production of alcohol expensive Its use can be retareded. Certainly there are wheels within wheels in out government operation. Will Search for Tubercular Cases in Humboldt County WtLLOBSEfcVE FARM AND CITY SUNDAY mal world were born to a mare at tho Carroll Washburn farm south | of Outhrle Center recently, and nt I the Paulsen Hatchery, producer of Arrnngetttents hove been completed for intensive work to Search out unsuspected cases of tuberculosis in Humboldt Coiinty, accord- Ing to a joint announcement made by Dr. Asa Arcnt of Hcmboldt, President of the Humboldt County Medical Society and Dr. Charles K. McCarthy, director of medical tuberculosis work for the State Department of Health of the Iowa Tuberculosis Association. Thl? survey Is a continuation of the work done n year ago and is to be an annual program. These three organizations arc joining with the Humbolclt County Christmas Seal Committee In the program. Half ot the costs of carrying on the program will be met by the Christmas Seal Committee nn { ] the Iowa Tuberculosis Assocla- lon. through funds obtained nl the nniial sale of Christmas Seals, nnd tuberculosis spreads by contact from the sick to the well, those persons are in greatest danger of the disease. By early examination, before the appearance of symptoms, casts may be found when but small Inroads have been made on the body and prospects for recovery are best. The plan of work includes the tuberculin skin-test, which shows whether or not Infection is present. The test will be followed, when positive, by chest X-rays to determine if the infection has resulted in a form of tuberculosis. "Modern knowledge about tuberculosis and how Its early diseoT- ery may be accomplished makes it unnecessary to allow this disease to develope Into an advanced stage before it Is discovered," staff"! D'r. McCarthy. "The community nsi; Farm and City Sunday at the morn- ins worship service at the Congregational church at eleven o'clock. with the sermon by the pastor, Rev. W.

Some members of the legislature tried to cut the Gordlan knot thai bound the committee hand and foot, but failed. Two members of the house from Hamilton county undertook to do that, hut were unsuccessful. However, the knot can be cut by an aroused public opinion and it now appears that is very likely to happen." Relative to the above it will be interesting to watch the progress of bills in the coming session of the state legislature, that seek to control the telephone sltiratlon. It is marvelous Mowsuch; bills can be side-tracked, smothered in a committee, be refused a place in the calendar, and otherwise mishandled and the will of the people thwarted. However, if the people are really In earnest they can get what they want. If they po after the legislators and demand ncll07i "or el*e," they will get it. Let's watch the vote of our representatives in the coming session of the legislature. According to n poll by the American Institute of Public Opinion the people "f the United States favor a federal sales tax of two per cent to help finance the war, but are against u tax of a higher percent. The recorded vole was 54 for and 4(1 against. From the expression of public opinion heard on the streets, the federal sales tax for production of money to help' meet the COM of the war is in favor. Al-n the sentiment seems to extend to congress. It IK very probable that we will have a government sales tax for war purposes. half Will "up met by HIP Sfn.t 0,j.

Pioneer Teacher Wins Silver Medal in Shorthand Contest Miss Claire Nestor, a teacher in the Pioneer high «chool, won the sliver medal in her division of the fourth annual radio shorthand contest sponsored by the American Institute of Business In Des Molnes.

Dictation was given at the rates of 80, 100, and 120 words per minute In each division. Gold, silver and bronze medals for first, second and third place winners were awarded in each division. Miss Nestor wrote at the rate of SO. Entries were judged on tho basis of accurate transcription neatness of notes, and the appearance of the mailable letter. WEATHER (Continued from pne« In fact, such a tax is about all there is left untapped for the purpose of raising money for national UMO. Incomes both private and corporate can not bear any more without drying them up so that they can not produce even what they are paying now. One objection to the sales tax is that it strikes thofo who are not MOW making expenses. Thai is tritt'. Hut It also strikes those who are already paying heavily, which mukes their burdens double. The sentiment has been expressed many times and is generally accepted that wartime restrictions are ruinous to small busim^?.. They tend to force the small business man and the small community out of existence. The trouble is that the small communities and small business are the fabric that holds our iniliun together and makes it what it is. And if they are destroyed the foundation of the nation is destroyed. We have rend a lot about the "economic royalists" and the "under-privileged," but now we nro seeing them the result of war conditions that are in the hand!' of the administration. Big business is getting the war contracts. Big business is mating billions out of war production, though we hope to take it away from them In time. But at the present moment with war restrictions cutting off the activities of the citizens and curtailing their privileges in trade and commerce, many of them are very near to insolvency. They are facing insolvency. t'n'."B they have aid they will be insolvent. Dorothy Thompson sees inflation the destruction of the -middle classes. She \a erratic and sometimes hysterical, but never-the-less is a woman of brains and foresight. Some oi our leading national characters are fearful for the nation's condition after the war if steps are not taEen to protect it. It in certainly a step that should be considered at this time, and should be an incentive to the vigorous prosecution of the war as well as to take steps tq fcsep our natioa what it was tatemted to b*. nUIBOLUT BAPTIST ('HtriK'H •aul Williams, Pnstor Church school nt 10:00 A.
