"John Brown's Body lies a-mould- ering in the grave But his soul goes marclyog on." And how it does go^ marching through Leonard Ehrlich's stirring and dramatic pages; tlie title of the new book is "God's. Angry Man." It is a novel, the author declares, not biography or a history: But it is biography and history, so scrupulously does it move within the frame of historic facts. Readers familiar with the life of John Brown •and acquairited with his contemporaries will know now few liberties haive been taken with men or events hi I the telling of this vivid tale. Tlie men stand out from the pages like figures in a pageant, and the events fa 1 into their proper order with scrupulous precision. Some rein has be »n given ' to" the imagination, of cbirse, to make: the book a novel an A not a text book. But nowhere a 5 the essential spirit of the char- ers or the times been distorted. The novel begins in 1856, in th^ "'^leeding Kansas" the. pioneers of this- state.knew so weU> where we first glimpse Old John Brown, "with a tattered .straw hat, hi.^ toes showing thi-cugh worn boots, looking like ati aging farmer in:straits," where he; was being hunted like a wolf, • where they'wanted him-either dead , or alive, preferably deajd,—"a grey, gajint man, almost sixty, with intense eyes,; a mouth that was bit- tei-, and seven huge sons.". This first chapter, from its first sentence, grips the reader and holds him breathless with interest until the end. And when the end of the chapter is reached one thinks "How can such:'a pace be kept to the end of the book? Must not all'the rest of it ,be anti -Glimkx?" , But there is no |inti-climax. '.] "Tlirough chapter after chapter the ; story races on. flaming, dramatic to the last page. The touch of madness in the Brown blood, the hatred of slavery that was so deep and bit' ter it submerged every ether senti- mon 't and made It possible, not pos. slble only but impei^tive, for liim to sacrifice himself'and he most loved in order that he might strike what he believed would be a death ' blow'' at the monstrous iniquity; the utter faith in God—'Ihoiigli he slay ' me yet will I trust in Him"; the • •suffering. phy .sical and emotional, through which he pa -ssed; the power of personality through •which he dominated men and .brought them against their own judgment and will to follow him to certain disaster; the tenderness-which melted him to tears>ovpr the suffering-of a hurt Jamb- and the implacable hardness which made it possible for him to take unarmqd nien from their peds and slay them with.his own hand; .the uiitlinching courage which faced . the extremest danger -without a tremor, w:hich at the end, • with tiie gallows in plain sight, refused to let his frlcijids' attempt liis rescue and scorned to allow his attorney to enter'a pica of insanity that the penalty might be mitigated: all . these are Iwought out in this book with Bwlfl aiid vivid strokes. It is ^Tally an'unforgettable story, this picture of "God's Angry Man." It is more than that, as one grille has snid. It Is a genuine, poetic creation deeply flowering from American soil, simple warm and tremendously moying. It is the author's first novel, dne wonders.if he can ever equal it again! i ; wives,, widows, children and employees and their familfes. i Obviously, the termsi of the law under which this home was created and maintained are being flagrantly violated. The home w|as ei^ted in the first place as a refuge for elderly and infirm Civil War veterans who were citizens of Kansas. There being few veterans of that war remaining, the home has been opened to Spanish-American and World War veterans, but ' only to such of these as were destitute and receiving inadequate pensiohs ; for their independent maintenance:. The committee declares that. persons have been frequently admitted to care as, destitute veterans who were at the time and are now recipients of ^pensions' wholly adequate for their independent support. More than half of the counties in Kansas make no use of the facilities at Fort Dodge, while other counlies, notably Ford and Sedgwick, use the institution out of all proportion to the taxes they pay for its maintenance. Tlie committee proposes that the present board of managers be abolished and the institution handled, by the board of administration. The legislature may well consider whether the whole institution; might not be abolislied. It was established in the first place purely as a town boosting proposition. There was no real need for it because the Federal government was making ample provision for the care of disabled and destitute Union veterans,—just as it is making ample provision now for the care of disabled and destitute Spanish War and World War veterans. Whatever purpose it served in the beginning, it is now a useless and unnecessary drain upon the state. THE lOLA DAILY REGISTER. THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 5. 193S North Dakota have iset aoi^ It stiould fasve a wtKKlefiOTie and inspiriting influence throughout the entire country^ : "Roosevelt is- to <Jirect 0>ngr^," proclaims a newspaper headline. What the countrY wants to know is who is goin^ to direct Roosevelt. From Other Papers PRINTERS SET AN EXA>IPLE. ; During the past two years in this countrj-, union; labor on the whole has managed ,it^ affairs in a most creditable mairtier. Not only have strikes, disturbances, and. violence been almost wholly absent during a time of the greatest imaginable stress, but examples of genuine altruism and self-sacrifice have not been lacking. One of'the most conspicuous examples has been the recent action of the International Typographical Union in making the five-day week (with five days pay) mandatory among all its members working in newspaper offices. Each member is required by ;the union law to "lay off" one day in six. giving that day's work lo some available substitute among the unemployed. It is particularly interesting to note that the law was adopted only after.a referendum vote of all the members. The printers themselves, of their own volition, have voted that they are willing to give up one- sixth of their income in order to contribute that much toward a solution of the unemployment problem in their own union. Nor will it be any trifling contribution. Approximately one-fifth of the union printers of the country are unemployed at present. The adoption of the.five-day law will reduce that proportion almost over night to a figure approximating that of normal times. Some labor unions 11 ave been hard to deaj with during the depression. THE DODGE CITY HOME. It is to be hoped that Governor Landon and the new legislature will -take prompt; notice of tiie report fegardhig the management of the Kansas; Soldiers' Home at Dodge City, just presented to retbing Gov-i ernor Woodring by a special comj mittee appointed to look , into the matter. 1 This report declared that out of 473 .persons at Fort Dodge Dec'pmber 24, 1932 only 76.^-ere vet4 ei&m. of any. war, the rfest being some have stupidly the impossible.

It is about the last place one would expect to find consei-yatism. North Dakota, where they were among the first, to adopt the radical initiative and referendum, the primary, and a lot of half-socialistic policies. But conservative it is. At the late election the people up there voted down by a 38.000 majbrity a referendum proposal to establish a partial moratoriimi upon indebtedness for a period of three years. Considering the history of the state it would have been thought that the people of North Dakota, given opportunity to do so, would have voted overwhelmingly, for a moratorium which included taxes and mortgages. But they had the opportunity and they turned it down. The movement was siwnsored by the Farmers Union which made a hard fight for it. The opposition to it had no weapon but a challenge to the people to /hialntaln the good name of the/state. The campaign was an intensive one, carried on by posters, pamphlets, newspaper advertising, speeches and radio. It commanded .so much local attention that it all but overshadowed the presidential contest. The result was a splendid vindication of the good sense, the integrity and the sanity of the people of North Dakota. Hard hit as they have been, not only by the depression .but by drouths and grasshoppers, these sturdy people want the world to know that they have hot 'quit, that they intend to fight their way through, pay their debts and keep their I record clear. - It Is- a fine example the voters of RIGHT BACK AT Y. B. El Dorado Times: Young ' BUI White, of the Emporia' Gazette, keeps haiping on the subject that we should eat our pants on a public street corner, because "oil prices today are slowly linking like a cork with a sucker on the hook; and that hi spite of the tariff." Can't we get it through that guy's concrete dome that there is no oil tariff. The last two or three Congresses have run from a tariff like a fat pullet from a coyote. True, there is a dinky little excise tax on imported oil—a tax about one-fifth as large as it should be to operate with the effect of a tariff.. It has done som,e good in six months' tin>e, but hardly enough even to ruffle the waters of the domestic oil industry which has been in a distressing state because of the influx of all this foreign pil on top of what the country itself produres. The tariff, fight is still goihg on. Oil independents have buckled to their job. But the big objective is still far, far away. ' We don't ,like pants as a diet any more.than anybody else. But we shall cheerfully eat them —and in \ - , THIS (mi(Xj$ mRm~- public, too—if there is ever a tariff levied o^ oil and it falls to- accomplish scnne of the benefits claimed for it, aifter a-fair trial. And Young Bill, in ^pite of his insistence, seems mollified to a certain extent. In another outburst yesterday, he declaims: "This town will be better off with the Ed Dorado editor inside his pants than with the pants inside of him, and him galloping over the lea looking like a cross between Lady Godiva and one of the sons of the wild jackass of the plains." Which are true, if somewhat frank words, and which contribute to a sense of relief. But we wish Y. B. could learn the difference between a tariff on'oil and a weak and puny imitation of the real thing. WHAT CONGRESS IS DOING Today—Senate: Takes up Glass banking reform bUl.
