COSSHESSXO AHE -JITT3BT, A Washington dispatch recently said that the congressmen there are jittery. Their state of mind is the result of several severe editorials in eastern papers relative to the fact that they had been alloted "X" gasoline cprds that permitted them to buy unlimited amounts of gasoline to be used on trips for official business while the ordinary citizens have been gasoline rationed. The crowning act came when an eastern magazine said that the present congress is perhaps the least intelligent since the former World's War, or words to that effect. The legislators remembering the people's reaction to the congressional pensions and the popular demand for action on the forty-hour Work week that was killed by standing votes that left the people In Ignorance of how any individual voted, were ready to believe that there might be a popular demand for their removal at. the coming elections. This is getting down to "where they live," in a slang phrase. There was talk of reprisal against the newspapers and dark hints that something would be done about it. There is also talk in legislative halls that the newspapers (largely eastern publication) are giving the public ground for luck of confidence in their chosen representatives. As the legislators put It, the newspapers involved arc "undermining the faith of the people in their legislators." To a party on the side lines It appears that nil officials who have Important government business to transact should be provided with means of transportation to enable them to get where they have to go. Of course it is not right nor fair to accord privileges to the officials that are under the same conditions denied the people. As to undermining the confidence of the people .In their legislators, that Is a matter that should lie between the people and their representatives. Experience has shown that the people are not easily swayed by newspaper articles or news unless there la an apparent reason for the truth. If the charges'are true the congressmen should take steps to remedy the defect. It is true that for about ten years Congress as a whole has been taking orders fromUhe White House. To a large extent our congressmen might 4 as well have been rubber stamps. Of course there .,, ,' are exceptions like the Supreme Court fight, but the jf >'^$otyisenB' haVe lost considerable faith In congress' !" * ability *o function as our congresses are supposed to, That Is, instead of congress passing legislation for the president's approval or disapproval, the president has been suggesting laws for the approval or disapproval of congress. But thon It may be ft good thing to get our representatives on the anxious seat. They may be quicker to respond to the demands of the people. Someone has suggested that congress might spend some time cutting out needless expenditures and would have less money to raise by taxation. Certainly We licked Englnml to gain oitt- Independence, and We licked her again to gain the freedom of the seas for our commercial fleet, tfut It happens this time that We are both on the same side. Someone has said that politics makes queer bedfellows, and it can be said that war does the same. Some of us may have bitter recollections of our conflicts with England, but Hitler is another matter. Japanese soldiers are said to be paid thirty-seven cents a month. It doesn't interfere with their fighting. Reports lanes «n< from the front Indicate that Japanese LOCAL At CLARION The Huffifioldt high ecnool track team won the North Central conference track meet Melfl at Clarion Saturday, for the sixth consecutive year.

When the odds are even the Americans usually win. Did you notice thnt one branch of the CIO repudiated John L. Lewis and asked him to get into line with public sentiment or resign? The fact is thnt the workers as a rule are not in sympathy with the racketeering leaders that have incurred the public ill will. Everyone believes In organized labor, also practically everyone Is against labor that is exploited by racketeering leaders. If all the Iowa farmers sign up for the AAA this year the total payment to this slate- will exceed $68,000,000. Elliott E. Simpson, who says he is an Independent rubber dealer in New York, is sending out a broadcast relative to the rubber situation that, should be suppressed if It is false or heeded if it is true. He insists that the rubber situation Is not understood by administration circles, and that there Is enough crude rubber on the Western Hemisphere to meet all the demands of this country. A Washington doctor says that his experience leads him to believe that slow-moving people live the longest. Maybe it's his environment. Gilbert (Clarion) fourth.

The withdrawal was undoubtedly due to the public indignation against the boost. Peeking behind the scenes one has to wonder what sort of a public relations committee- the company has. Certainly it balled things up badly. It will take the company years to live down its act. Some of Murk Thornburg's friends recently named htm as the beat vote-getter in the Republican pri- K. K. Ilussenholt in the publican Sports Afield, Juno issue, 1!I42, diagnose" thn duck life and Its eventual life period as follows: lie estimates the duck population at the northern nesting grounds at 75,000,000 ducks. Those- should produce under normal conditions 12B,000,000 ducklings. This would make a total of 211,000,000 ducks or potential ducks. Of course many of these are killed in the eggs, for remember, the Increase has been figured as potential ducks. Thus because of crows and other preditors that destroy the eggs as well as the young ducks, the crop is whittled down during June by '44,000,000 ducks or ducklings that have been destroyed. Jack pike, or the fish known as northern pike, devour millions of young ducklings as they swim on the water of the lakes and lagoons of the nesting grounds. Then July takes its toll of 34,840,000 ducklings by drought. That Is, the mother ducks select as nesting pieces ponds that dry up and leave the small ducks stranded without water. Such fowls usually start overland for some distant water hole, but die enroute. August also adds to this toll by 0,780,000 ducklings. September accounts through duck destruction by 570,000. October which sees the open season start in the north accounts for 4,975,000, November drops 8,575,00 more as the ducks wing southward. December takes 4,2:10.000. January through various cousos though not traceable to legal shooting takes 2,000,000. February takes 1,800.000, March 1,600,000, April 1,000,000, and May sees the loss of 14.8S.OOO through fires at the nesting grounds. Thus we have approximately 10,500,000 bogged by sportsmen, or fourteen per cent of the totai duck population. We have 75,000,000 ducks In the nesting grounds. They should and would under protected conditions produce a crop of 136.000,000 young dnckn. This would make, with the old ducks, a total of 211,00,000. The hunters take by li-gul shooting only (in the United States) 10,500,000. Canada takes by legal shooting 750,000. Clearly if we would increase our migratory duck population we must protect the ducks—-not from the legal hunters, but from predators, the elements, etc. Hieber (Humboldt) fourth, toncc, 115 feet 5 Inches.

CORN PRODUCTS ARE DOING THEIR PART IN THE PRESENT WAR Abundantly available corn syrup, one of the major products of the corn wet-milling industry, has aKain captured the limelight as a sweetening agent to augment the nation's war-time sugar rations. Strangely enough, corn syrup owes its existence to a sugar-shortage caused by another war. Around 1810 during the Napoleonic wars the European continent was HO thoroughly blocked by the British that among other things an acute sugar shortage developed, and Napoleon offered a reward of 100,000 francs to any scientist who could produce a sugar from products aw. liable on the continent. A German chemist succeeded in producing not only sugar but also a syrup from starch, using potato starch, his domestic product. This discovery remained unimportant until an American, Cicero J. Hamlin, established a factory in Buffalo. New York, in 1873 for the manufacture of syrup from corn, tbis country's most abundant crop. Since that time corn syrup has become an increasingly important factor in our American diet. Used in great quantities by tbe candy, Ice cream aud baking industries and by other food manufacturers, Lad Fractures Arm While at School Picnic Sunday Last Merlin Nelson, 5 year-old son of Sam Nelson;- of rfoiith 'of'UrHque, suffered a fractured left arm above the elbow Sunday while attending a school picnic.
