I - EDITORIAL - TVie Pliilosophy «»f Lincoln i (lonfisc'alin|2 Cars Earl Hall of the Mason City Glolx'-Onzettc puWished an "Abe Lincoln Credo" the other day, comprising exceiiits from wj-itings and speeches of Abraham Ijncoln which stated that great man's views on goveniment and economics. Here they are: 1. Yon cannot bring jibout prosperity by disconraging thrift. 2 .Y0U cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. 3. You cannot help .small nion by tearing down big men. 4. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. 5. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. 6. You cannot keep out of trouble l)y spending more than your income. 7. You cannot further the brothei- hood of man by inciting cla.s.s hatred. 8. You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money. 9. You cannot build charactei' and courage by taking away a man's initiative. 10. You cannot really help men by having the government la.x them to do for them what they can and should do for themselves. Bill Feather says he is pleased to note that some physicians have quit blaming all adult ills on the pleasanter indulgences. The KedwiKd Falls Gazette i)onders the drunken driver .problem, including a reader's suggestion that the state impound an ol- fender's car as the game warden, through the court, may confiscate a i)oacher's gun. The Gazette reasons that "Fear of loss of as substantial a part of most men's holdings as his car will make him think twice before taking the risk. The idea has merit, although subject to the same criticism as revocation of drivers' licenses that it would dein'ivo some men of their jobs, which require use of a car. "An answer to that is that the drunkeii driver deprives an innocent party of hi.-^ life." That's strong talk, but unless other methods produce I 'esults and retluce killing-s on the highway from liquor crazed driver.- some such extreme measure may l>e exiject- od.

PoliUcal Ringside Demos Seek To Stir Up Interest By ROBERT IIOGAN, lowu Dally Press Writer DCS Moines (IDPA)—Iowa Democratic leaders are makln;; every effort to stir up interest within party ranks in an effort to keep 44 scats in the .<-tate legislature from ROinp to republicans, at least without a fight. The democrats failed to enter primary candidates tor 34 seats In the Iowa house of representatives and 10 seats in the Iowa senate by the March 14th deadline for filing. Now they don't want them to go by default. Iowa law provides' for nominating candidates by the write-in method providing no regular candidates have filed for the. nominaUon. The write-in canUi- •iate must poll a minimum of 10 per cent of the vote cast in his county or district for his parly'-s c:indi- date for governoi in the previous election, « 4 » IP HE HAPPENS to fall below the 10 per cent minimum ho Isn't nominated. But if a write-in candidate geia more than five per cent of the minimun. required, the party can then nominate a candidate for that office in convention. This procedure gives the party a chance to enter a candidate for lhi> office In tb« November general election. State chairman Jake More reports that serious efforts are underway in 21 counties to nominati- write-in candidates for state representative fron: those counties, and that write-in campaigns are expected to nominate Democrat candidates for th" 10 senate seats for which no party candidates filed, a * * CLARK H. McNEAL, campaign manager for gubernatorial candidate Kenneth A. Evans, repotted lor work the other morning minus his cuff buttons Clark soon found that the Evans-for-governor coat lapel pins do a nice job of doubling for cuff links. Presumably headquarters has no qualms aboui "putting it on the cuff" as long as the payoff come? at the June 2 primaries. Al Kahl, immediate past chairman of the Iowa Safety Council, reported to the recent state convention his reasons lor the improved showing in lowa','^ present improved safety record. The report almost went unnoticed in the press. * * s KAIIL ATTRIBUTED the present reduction of 47 fatalities in traffic accidents to: An increase in the number of state highway patrolmen no won duty; the coordinated statewide traffic education program of the; the year-end "drive right" campaign conducted throughout the slate last December, and greater emphasis on traffic education In rural areas. He predicted an approximate 10 per cent reduction in fatal crashes this year if efficient performance of state and local enforcement officers con- Inue.i, if improvements are made in safety engineering, and if strong public support of the lo-wa Safely Council's safety education program advances.

Some improvement in fishing on Big Spirit Is noted this week, especially -Since Monday. Ed Andreas of bvfeans look a limit ot nice walleyed pike while trolling in the deep w^.iters far out into the lake Tuesday. Others have had the same experience. MOST SUCCESS is reported by those fishing with spinners and live bait—either minnows or chubs. Limit catches of bullheads also are reported on the big lake this week. The trend up there seems to be toward improved fishing conditions in general, and present weather conditions favor tho trend. Shore ca.sters havq picked up a few nice pike between 9 p. xa. and midnight along the south shore of Big Spirit. Crappies have started biting in the upper end of East Okoboji, Two of the most productive areas are the bay south of Peppermint point and near the spillway between Big Spirit and East Okoboji. Minnows seem to be .attracting the species in greatest numbers. Good catches of bullheads are reported daily near Lake View be.ach on East Okolxjji. A few walleyes have also been caught there this week, * * * WALLEYED PIKE, silver bass and sheephead have been active at night near the Okoboji bridge between East and West Okotwjjis, Night casters with minnows reeled in slowly have gone home with nice catches. There has been some congestion in that area due to the large number of anglers. The problem of casters not watching behind them has been experieneod there and has resulted in several people being slightly injured by carelessly handled hooks, A little more careful handling of the casting rod would be appreciated by everyone. There have been some nice catches on West Okoboji. Don Daily took a limit of 2 to 3 pound waH- eyes Tuesday in Millers Bay fishing with a fly rod and minnow, and an unidentified group from Algona caught a nice string in the deep water off Fort Dodge point the same day. The most important fishing note to be considered this week is that pike are taking live bait more freely just now than anything else. It is well to fish deep and, when casting, roU the line in slowly. This one point may determine the difference between a successful and unsuccessful fishing trip.
