Who doubts now that he did more to cushion itis bliows, to prevent it from being ten times more devastating than it was or is. than anybody or everybody else? And .so within less than ninety days aim the election every Impor- lam Lssue has faded away. As W. A. White remarks: "Herbert Hoover has lost like a gentleman, but his defeat was accomplished by a marked deck with phoney cards dealt from the bottom by his adversaries."

CAMPAIGN ISSUES FADE.. The Register has no dispq.sition to fight the old campaign over aenin. What's done is done. What's without remedy mast be without rc- gai-ti. To put it .ill in a coui)Ie of nutshells. Audiyct as a matter of keeping the record .straight this paper as- .sume.s it as a plen.sant duty to note one after another the disappeni'uncc of the • "i.ssue.s" through which the opposition to President Hoover sought to mnko' sentiment against him. . , M ; First of all there wa.s:the "Strange - Career of Mr. Hoover;": the most infamously. false and libelous attack ever made upon any public man in America. The man who wrote that • book has now under oath repudia' ed it in every charge,: inuehdo and in.slnuation it contained, his repudiation ^covering 189 closely typed pages, every page bearing his signature, and the book has been with" drawn from circulation. That book was planned at Democratic National Headquarters and its Cjontents made the basis of innumerable newspaper and oratorical attacks'upon the President.^ :N OW the author of il .sweai-s that every essential statc- . ment in it which reflected in any . way upon Mr. Hoover, was false, and J. the publisher, whining; that he does not want "the President of the United States to suffer from, any false _statemcnt" has withdrawn the book 'from sale. Tlial Democratic issue is dead. ; Another issue, energetically publi- ' cispd throughout the campaign, was. the Democratic charge that the Reconstruction Finance! Corporation, the great and beneficent measure devised by Presidentj Hoover for stimulating business and affordinp AS TO ASSESSMENTS. In the matter of assessment of real property two ideas have been advanced in the Kansas legislature. One of them proposes a re-valuation.; to bring property to present values. The other, proposes a horizontal reduction ^f 20 per cent. frt)m last year's assessment rolls. In the judgment of The Register neither of these proposals should be adopted. Assessments which were made two years ago. when the public mind was not excited on questions of taxation as it is now, are much more apt to represent fair average' values than assessments that might be made today. ;But if either idea is to be adopted itwiould seem as if the'preference should be given to the proposal to make a'horizontal cut for one year, a.ssuming this can be done without violating the constitution. If'this mea.sure is adopted thC; old valuation will automatically be restored next year when, it Ls to be a.ssumed. the economic extremity will in at some degree be past. This plan ha.s the further merit of economy. It would be much cheaper to make a simple mathematical computation than it would to employ men to spt-nd ihiity. days inspecting property, and writing out new rolls. One thing not to be forgotten in the consideration of either of thc-je lilans is that, with a fixed amount of money to be raised, a reduction in is • inevitably accompanied by an increase in the rate. Reduced valuation will not lower taxes unless there is a cut in public expenses. And If there is a cut in public expen.scs it will be.reflected in lower taxes although the valuation may remain stationery. It is because this is axiomatic that The Register thinks we might as well let|lhe old valuations ride and concentrate ;'on reducing appropriations. econcmic relief, was used to iielp the rich really being and not the poor. Beginning befoije the corporation had got fairly , started and continuing with increasing emphasis light down to the ikst day of the c.impaign. the attack ijvas made until thou.sands were convinced that ihe President not only; did not want the poor helped but 'that he did . want Government money poured into the lap of the rich. Well, the Senate committee, headed by a man - who has been one of the' President's ' sewrcst critics, after gjoing all through the R. F. 'C;; b^Jks and sttidying the advance^ it has made to railroads, banks, trust companies.; insurancCiCompanies and everything.; reports that the loans were all well: placed and wisely. The committeie _ finds no ifault at all, and its report is signed unanimously, by Demo-: _ crats as well as Republicans. So an- other campaign issue jis disposed of. —after the campaign is over. Another issue was the tariff. Froni the day in June, 1930j when the , Hawley-Smoot law went into effect until the evening of Election day it „was denounced as the sum of all villainies. It was held Responsible by Democratic newspapers and orators for the shrinkage of our foreign trade. It was declared to be a Chinese wall so high that no foreign goods could get over it and therefore, since other nations could not _ sell here they would not buy here. It was alleged to be (he ileal cause of the defalcations of our European debtors. And Hoover J w -as held responsible for it. But I now that the election is over who says anything , about the Hawley-Smbot law? Nobody—except some scores of Amen-r can i manufacturers, oilj operators and lumber producers who declare it is not high enough, that Unless its rates are advanced their fcusiness will be ruined by foreign importations! Another issue, and the one that ' "doubtless influenced more votes than any other, was the depressibn. In '^he mouths of Democratic orators ONLY ONE REAL SUCCESS. Few women in America have won distinction in so many fields as Miss Elizabeth Marbury. who died in New York the other day at the age of 76. In theatrical, literary, political and civic life she had played a conspicuous part and had won many honors. By any of the ordinary standards it would be judged tliat she Ihad made a great success of her hfe.' Bui looking back over it all as the end drew near she declared: "Tiere is only one real success for women; that is to marry happily and have children and a home. In other words to bring forth life ns God intended a wbman should." Those words should be comforting to women who niay have felt that in merely being happily married, having children and keeping a home they were not accomplishing anything in particular. In the long perspective that age affords the thing which gives the greatest .-{atisfaction . either to man or v.'oman is not the: "honors" that ma^y have been won, • but j the childrcii that have been brought up. the home that has been malntaim and the friends tliat have .been made. The churches of lola arc giving a beautiful illustration of applied Christianity days in providing hot lunches every day for the men working on the co-operative unem- plo >Tnent relief projects now under way in lola. The churches provide the food and the women, as usual when such. enterprises are undertaken, do the work. It goes without saying that the rrlcn who are the beneficiaries of this thoughtfulness are deeply appreciative. The Congress of the United States is giving a good illustration these days of not letting its right hand know what it^ left hand is doing. In one act of .legislation it provides a fund of $90,000,000 to be lent to farmers to enable them to plant more land and grow more crops, and in another act it proposes to boost the price of certain commodities by requiring the beneficiaries of the boost lif any) to curtail their crop acreage by 20 per cent. ; The Senate committee, considering the 3.02 beer bill, adopted an amendment, to forbid the sale of siich a beverage to mirrors. If it is not intoxicating why forbid its sale to minors? If it is intoxicating it is in violation of the Constitiition^ Only another of the innumerable contradictions in which those find themselves involved who are. trying to do something the Constitution forbids them doing.

Ronslck Victim of Intruder Who Binds Her While Ransacking'Her Home. From Other Papers • An Iowa Grocer 's Success. El Dorado Times: H. A. Sino, jan independent grocer of Clinton, Iowa, i-ecently published a 4-page advertisement in the Herald, a newspaper in that town of 27,500 iiopulation. Clinton has ius full quota of chain stores, but Mr. Sino's record refutes any claims that "the day of the independent merchant has passed." His eighth store was opened on the. day the advertisement ran. which was the 21st anniversary of his institution: ,: Mr. Sino began with one small store and now counts eight in his flock—all reported to be up-and- coming modern groceries. His reputation as a merchant is establi.shed fa;r and wide. Modern merchandising methods and persistent use of newspaper advertising are the two elements conspicuous in his success. Mr. Sijuo has a contract with the Clintoii Herald which calls for a miinimum of 200 Inches of display space peii- week, and he has used in of 10,000 inches aiinually for several years. Manufacturers' representatives who call upon him must invariably answer the question, 'how much newspaper advertising are your coinpanies doing to promote sales of your' products?" for Mr. Sino is one of Iowa's most consistent boosters! for newspaper-advertised products; Not all merchants can be Sinos, but all of them can have a portion of the Iowa man's success by employing the methods he has found satisfactory. And not the least of these is the, cd ;itinual pounding away w-ith newspaper advertising and the merchandise to back it up. •:- •:• •> •> •:• • <:• • SOYEARS AGO .> EdilorUtland NeWs Items from • the I lola R«'gister of • January :^6, 1883. • • • • '>•:'•><''>•>':•'><'<' Even theimost intimate friends of the ixirtiesj were sui;prised to learn of.the maiTiftge on.
