Fm h Mng Restored With a** .^Ji^.***** *»***.* 1 I€|H ETCUUm re 13» EDITORIAL It U Time for Everyone to Boost President Franklin D. Roosevelt has taken office and is now at the helm of our ship of state at a time when it is sailing in most troublous waters. He has taken hold In a manly and masterful manner that bodes well for our future. He has a difficult task before him, for the country as well as the world at large, was never in a more troubled state. It will require every ounce of his splendid vitality to fill his position and he needs the cooperation and prayerful backing of every citizen of these United States; with friendly encouragement rather than carping ^ """llBtt Hoover, in the cordial example of helpfulness that he has already exhibited toward his successor. As American citizens we should do no less. It there was ever a time when all should unite tor the common good and welfare of our country it is now. More power to President Roosevelt and the good men he has chosen to work with him. Their success means better things for all of us. Malvern's community Dollar Days last week showed how local business men are putting forth their best efforts to help customers in these difficult times. And the response of trade to the many bargains offered indicated that the public appreciates the effort. More power to Mr. Roosevelt! We believe the nation echoes this sentiment as the new president takes his office and prepares for what has been Justly said to be possibly the most difficult task in history. This task well requires all the strength and power and wisdom of which any one is capable. It involves problems for which there are no proven answers and involves breaking a path into a rugged and unknown territory. We believe that Mr. Roosevelt, with the help ot all of the citizens of this country, will be able to perform this task, We pledge our best of- forts to assist him In the work in whatever way possible. While the part that any one individual can play in the reconstruction of our economic system is perforce small, yet this Individual effort is one of the most Important requisites in recovery. Mr, Roosevelt miters the Presidency not only with the absolute confidence of the vast majority of voters, but with the sincere best wishes of tiu- rest. of them as well. More pnw^r to you, Mr, UooseveH! % u i i , The action which was taken Friday night to put the entire stata on u holiday plan, however severe the plan Height be, wag ft necessary »tep uudor They Call Us Civilized The Travelers Insurance company has published a booklet entitled, "They Call Us Civilized," which is an invaluable addition to the literature of safety. it shows vividly, through tables and descriptions and Illustrations, the horror and the magnitude of our annual toll of automobile fatalities and injuries. It is true that last year automobile deaths decreased as compared with 1931 — but there is little cause for pride In that. Gasoline consumption and automobile registrations likewise decreased. And—here is the main thing — in 1932 deaths and non-fatal injuries actually INCREASED per accident. In other words, there were fewer accidents, due largely to the fact that there was less driving; but each accident, when it occurred, was more likely to have serious consequences than in any other year. The most difficult phase 'of tbo entire problem is, public TWJ UOUIUUl' 1 jftllftUJ umi ifln" world shuddered at the sinking of the Titanic, costing 1517 lives, the San Francisco earthquake, costing 500 lives, and the wreck of the Shenandoah, costing 14 lives. Yet last year, the automobile, driven by the reckless, the incompetent and the unthinking, cost 29,000 lives, and In 15 years It has cost 325,000, Automobile deaths are a greater disaster than any of those which have been blazoned in headlines throughout the world — and they cause hardly a ripple. The streets and highways of America are as dangerous as a battlefield. They are an ever- preseut menace to life, property, safety. A condition has been created that will require, in its solution, the active help of every thinking citizen. O LD t-ORT WASHiftaTON, the most Important stronghold of the Continental army on Manhattan island in the War of the Revolution, Is now being restored to Its original form by the city. The site Is In Bennett park between fort Washington and Plnehnrst avenues and between One-Hundred and Eighty-Third nfid One-Hundred and Eighty-Fifth street*, the highest plot of ground on the island.

In 1932 the state of Iowa at the Eldora training school expended $191,330 or $346.72 each for the education and guidance of 558 boys. In 1931 the expenditure was $191,890 for 486 boys. The county appropriation in Iowa for the 100 Farm Bureau organizations total $335,000, A generous estimate of the portion of that amount expended for 4-H club work with boys and girls is twenty-five per cent or $81,250. Other known costs of club work in Iowa Include $15,250 a year for the beef, dairy, and colt clubs through state subsidized breed organizations and $43,000 expended for club work by the Ames extension department. Office expenses and other miscellaneous costs probably do not exceed $15,000, on a liberal estimate $215,000 at the utmost. The total cost of club work in Iowa therefore is not greater than $184.500 a year. Twenty-seven thousand hoys and gfls were reached with this hltth typo of guidance and educational influnuce in 1932.

Now, what bold bad bandit with pride in his profession, although perhaps not averse to a nice visit with the law and taking a. chance of being shown by "Jake" the errors of his ways, would care to meet the marshall and an inquisitive reporter at the same time? How could Jake, although armed to the teeth and ready, even anxious, for an emergency such as a sky-light burglar or a thief that looked like a laundry man but wasn't, do his duty while engaged in a controversy with one who has a reputation^ for always taking the nega- Por instance: He was asked what he thought about a community church in place of four different churches?

Agricultural Complimented t>es Moines! la., Jan. 28.— The agricultural statistics of Iowa ate the best in the United State*, declared W. f. Callander, chairman of the crop reporting board of the V. S. Government at Washington, D. C., while paying an official visit to Mr. Ray Murray, Secretary of tne f*wa Department of Agriculture, Charles D. Reed, Director ot the Iowa Weather and Crop Bureau, and Leslie M .Carl, Iowa Agricultural Statistician of the U. 8. Department of Agriculture. This come* about from the loyal and efficient work of the Iowa assessors in collecting the annual agricultural statistics under the supervision and coordination of the Weather and Crop Bureau. About twelve other states collect agricultural statistics by assessors but in no other state has this work reached the perfection. that it has in Iowa where the results for the questions asked are the equal or superior of the federal census. Recent fine weather and good road* have enabled the assessors to make excellent progress with the work this year and the statistical books are already beginning to arrive in Mr. Reed's of- flee, The general cooperation of farmer* in giving the statistics to assessor* I* a Urge-factor in nestic Senator? *»,'the outstanding. ««,«,«, new.cabinet and hta*loss will „, keenly felt, Iowa will be honored by having the Secretary of Agrt- culture, Henry A. -Wallace, who i* highly regarded all over the middle west.
