S. \ % V \ - EDITORIAL The Busy Spenders Our jrovernment is never so far in riebt. its budget is never so clumsily out of balance, our taxes are never so liish—Init what our political visionaries can ahvavs wasto more money. The Roosevelt sjwnders found outlet, for instance, in printing- new kinds of stamps, so that Mr. Rocsevelt and other collectons could paste them in their scrap hooks. Other sort of nonsense ha.s claimed federal attention. Right now the busy I'. S. mint has a side-' show of striking off Georgo Washington • Carver-llooker T. Washington commeniora-, tive half dollars. : The half dollars sell at .<2.ito each, with! the $1.")0 goinf to the llooker T. Washing-! ton birthplace memorial and the 'Jknirge, Wa.shington Carver national moinimeni i foundation. | All very woiihy. but what business does j the federal government have in usine itsi function of minting money to pay it.s res- Xyectfi to anybody and jwnicularly to use the minting of money for private fundi raising? It is not difficult to get far afield, which accounts in pait lor the high piice of low- pfficiency government. We iiay a lot to get a little. In large part it is l)ecause our jwliticians find it more effective to give away the substance of the nation than to kiss babies. It come.s under the heading of getting vote.s. This misuse of government function and misappropriation of tax monev is nothing more or less than immoral. Steam-roller tactics are those things to be dei)lored only when the other fellow uses (hem. And .><9'netimes they backfire. The people of Asia are hungry, our good friend Jim lla-<sell [wints out, after a return from the Orient. \'er\- simple: The land has beoi over­ cropped and has Ijecome impoverished while at the same time the human race populating the areas have bred and multiplied to a point where there is scant little on which to subsist. A little food won't feed a lot of people. It is futile to seareh for a solution that leave.s out of account the basic problem of fitting human population to physical j)otentialitie.s of food, fuel and shelter.

Saw a robin on the street yesterday all stuck up u-ith bubble gun.. Quite a big piece, too It u-.ns rather a comical sight. * * iS "WE HAVE AT our house," writes a render of the Caletlonia Argus, Caledonia, Minn., u room that we call tho port of laat resort. It was a room that belonged to an aunt who lived with us for Severn 1 years. After her death we used it for a catch-ail. Anyone who had something to do and wanted to be left alone, went there to work or read. Finally, wo decided to fix it up a little and now when an;,of us want to get away from it all—we just go in there and s.hut tho door. Sometimes one of us is feeling blue or ornerj' or is wre.stling with a prob lem or maybe it in a case of nerves. Well, in he goes and whon the door is shut, no one intrudes, 11 is surprising what good results come trom a session of quiet there. No questions are asked. You can havi> a good cry if you want to. or punch tho daylights out of the pillows, or say some extra prayers, or blow off steam in your favorite way. UV think every house should have such a room." * « » LAST WEEK end we spent in Minneapolis at a meeting. Our hotel room was on the eleventh floor^ It was a very hot night outside, although wo had air conditioning, and in the sultry darkness from !. tiny ledge outside my window, a locust sang lustily. I looked out to see if 1 could locate it, but I couldn't But it was there just the same. Singing loudly, 11 stories in the air,' and tolling the guest:-., who knew it without being told, that it wa,s a very hot night and was going to be even hotter tomorrow. >> * » THE LOCCST not only sings of hot weather, but its very sound makes the thermometer go up several degrees. What we need is a locust that will sing when tho thermometer is 20 below. Am making rhubarb and strawberry jam this morning, with rhubarb which a friend in town canned earlier this spring, and with strawberries which a friend in town gave me. Friends are pretty wonderful.

Larson Spends ,$640 Des Moines, (.!P) —Attorney Gen- oral Robert L, Larson reported he received $640 in contributions and spent $700 in his KUCce;iMful campaign foi' republican rcnomniatlon in the June 2 primary election.

Red Sox Lose to Mason City, 5 to Johnny Hill On Mound for Legionnaires BY IIOVT I.U1THLV The Red So.x chipped in last night to help Johnny HU! keep hla reputation as tho chief pitching nemesis of tho home club In the Iowa State league. HllJ won his sctiond league start last night, tho Legionnaires taking tho contest, S to 4. Although Hill pitched a creditable, steady ball game the Sox aided his cause by allowing Mason City three unearned tallies and then denying themselves a chance to knot up the game In the ninth Inning with some over-zealous basc- runnln>;. The two-day layoff of the home club coupled with o wet and slippery diamond at Mason City last night seemed to have a bad effect on the load diamondmen. An error in the third led to two Mason City tallies after tho side .should have been retired and the same misfortune transpired in tho eighth, allowing one Legionnaire counter. .•R ni * FOR A FI.EETIXG moment in tho ninth it .tppcnied that tho Sox had a fine chance of getting back into the ball game. With two out and tho bases clogged Bill Mosscr came in to iiat for Lou Rosin and rifled a hit into center field which got by little Albie Pearson on the slippci-y grass. All three Esther- viile baserunnors, Gordic XVlnkel, Jim Hanson and Jim Woltz, r^ced across the plate to bring the coU(tt to 5-1, Mossor, however, was nip^ pod trying to e.xtcnd the hit into a three-bagger on a perfect throw to third by Pearson and the threat ended abruptly. Rain interrupted play in the fourth Inning for about 15 minutes last night with the Sox leading 1-0 on Jim Hanson's 355-foot home run in the third inning over the center field fence. • * » .MASON CITV apparently profit- ted from this interlude. Legionnaires John Ewaniak and Bol) Miller hit home runs on successive pitches in .their half of the fourth to go In front 2-1, the only earned runs the victors got off Lou Rosin. Mason City got two more In the sixth. MUler opened tho frame with a line single to right and Jack Patchctt sacrificed him to second. Don Waldron popped up to first and Leo Schluctor was safe at first when Bart Bartkowski dropped Rosin's throw after fielding Schlueter's easy roller. Miller scoring from second on the bobble, Schlueter taking second after the play at the plate on Miller. Hill then rapped out a solid safety to left field scoring Schlueter. The final Mason City tally came on an error, a walk and a double by Schlueter. Rosin and Hill were almost equally effective last night, both permitting eight hits, Hill Issuing only two passes, Rosin only three and Rosin whiffing five and Hill six. * !'.; S: Tire LEFT fielders of both clubs were busy men—Jack Kaley of the Sox turning In five putouts and Jack Patchctt of tho Legionnaires, four. Jim Hanson was the only Esthor- vUlc sticker to get two hits off Hill, a double and a home run, and Bob Miller was only Legionnaire to solve Rosin's offerings for more than one base knock, a homer and single. Hanson looked good behind the plate for Esthervlllc and gave appearances ot being a tough man at tho plate. Tho Sox travel to Carroll tonight where they tangle with the Merchants in an attempt to,secure their hold on first place. Bill Mosscr is due to get tho pitching assignment and likely will - bo opposed by Wayne Pftlgo or Bob Getting. Tho Sox then go ogainst tho Wall Lake Popcorn Kernels In a twin bill at Jaycco field tomorrow night with Milt Ardrey and cither Bob Ketohcll or Wally Sodorstrom expected to do tho throwing for the homo club.

Heat Beat Sugar Ray; May Retire New VorK, (.'Pt—Th.'* ring career of Sugar Hny Robinson may hiive cotno to nn end In tho blast furnace heat of Yankee stadium last night -jDiit two roumls nwny front victory over liglit heavyweight champion Jooy Maxim. The thirti jewel for his cniwn eluded Robin,<on in the steaming 103-«.logroo tonipvratvire that molted tho flesh off the loan mUUtb^ weight king. Robinson well ahtvad of his heavier rival- eollapstid after the 13th round and the victory was tossed to tho fumbUnK hands of Maxim. Tt wa.s nn astonlMhlng climax of what had been n one­ sided fray. "Ray was going to call It quits if he won decisively." said Junto Clark, a longtime friend of Ray. "Xow this could be It too. I guess." w » » ROBINSON WHO once held tha welterweight crown had been bidding to become the third fighter to win three championships. There was many an export who felt that he had seen tho last of tho groat sugar man. Ray — with money aplenty — niay give the answer today wlion ho recovers. The bout will go into the books as a 14th round technical knockout for Maxim. But most of the wilted crowd of 47,983 (gross gate $421,606) will credit yie T. K. O. to the heat in Yankee stadium. Ray couldn't talk to the press after he was helped to his dressing room. It was tho first knockout of his 11'.i years of pro boxing but his second defeat in less than a .year. >)• « « DB. IB.\ McCOWN, state athletic commission physician, told reporters outside Robinson's dressing room that "Robinson Is mentally as well as phylcally exhausted. He's speaking unintelligibly. He appears to be out in left field." Promoter AI Weill later told reporters Robinson was all right. "He told mo 'Maxim didn't boat me. The heat did It. I gucas God wanted It that way,'" Weill said. Maxim, who weighed 173 to 167Vj for Robinson said his short punches to tho body weakened his lighter rival as much as tho heat. "The heat hurt mo as much as him," said Maxim, the 8 to 5 favorite. Robinson did most of the leading and in tho first 11 rounds stabbed Joe like a matador working on a lumbering bull. He stag- pcred Maxim in the sevejnth and ninth rounds with smashing loft' hooks. * * * MAXIM'S BEST punches were those shorties to the boc\y in the clinches. His occasional letthoo^s to the head and a' rare right were without much steaih.' In the 12th, two rounds after Referee Ruby Goldstein became 111 from the oppressive heat and was replaced by Ray Miller, Robinson appeared to wobble as he retreated from Maxim. Near tho end of the 13th he fell on his face after missing a haymaker right. At tho bell he collapsed against the ropes in a neutral corner. His handlers quickly dragged him to his stool. Dr. Alexander Chief, tho ringside physician, said Robinson told him that "I can't get up on my feet. I'm all in." Tho doctor signalled Referee Miller that it was all over. Judge Harold Barnes said he had Robinson In front, 10-3. Judge Arthur Aldala said his card had Ray leading, -9-3-1, tho same as the Associated Press card.
