EDITORIAL There la scarcely a person In the state today who doesn't know that when he overeats he will have digestive trouble but who will yet overeat again tomorrow if the opportunity presents itielf. Most of our real troubles are dwarfed beside our imaginary ones. These are days when ambitious men long for an excuse to be lasy. The reason that the depression affects most of us so disastrously is that we refuse to take the bold steps necessary to change conditions. The one rule of life which is more conducive to happiness Most of us flrmly believe that we could easily handle the big problems but never seem to have time to properly care for the little ones. We would like to see a community cleaning day at which time the Paddock park and library grounds would be raked and cleaned for spring. The Bpard of Park Commissioners might engineer it. The Easter parade was Just as bright this year as ever. A new ribbon, an old hat worn at a new angle, a cleaned tie — plus a fresh spring feeling — makes any Easter parade a success. Mills countians will not need to spend money to go to resorts this summer. There are in Mills county plenty of recreational facilities to satisfy almost ev. eryone. There are golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools, delightful places to hike, plenty of places to ride and even some fishing. Use of these will bring just as much enjoyment and health as any other type of vacation. Two towns are started in a frontier territory at the same time. Both start prosperously with high hope for the future. Suddenly one town starts to lose and the other to gain a little more rapidly, What has happened? Jn the first community the citliens have ceased to work energetically and COB* stantly for the development of their town. In the second the people realized that the progress of their municipality depends upon their own ual efforts. Thus only those communities grow and develop which claim progressive, active people as eltfcens. Malvern has developed end will develop more In the future simply because there live here many people who constantly want their home community to grow Prance, our ally during the World war, is plannlnjr to WSBd, welj pyer a, BUMon, 4oi- Urs for propaganda IB tb« United State*.

Perhaps a more efficient way to gain good feeling in this Country would be to take a less materialistic stand in mutual relationships, rather than spend so much for propaganda. Hope continues to stand high for the success of the New Deal. Because of the some what unorthodox method ot approach some of the steps toward bringing the new deal have made little progress thus far although they have stimulated considerable optimism. But, regardless of how optimistic we may be orer tbe stan, no one can claim that the money changers have been driven from the temple. Lower interest rates and easier credit must come before we can begin to believe that. And if President Roosevelt succeeds In getting a lower interest rate so that the burden of the huge internal debt can be lowered we will truly believe him to be a super man. JN WASHINGTON By Otfa* D. Wearla Seventh Iowa- District able portion ot Its time during the week past to a consideration of tbe bill to refinance farm mortgages. The feeling among many members of Congress, myself Included, was that the interest rate provided therein should have been much lower. Unfortunately our group was not sufficiently large to put over the idea. The measure in its final form constitutes a considerable improvement, however, over existing conditions, Debate on the floor brought out some interesting trends that are developing In Washington chief among which was the sentiment for more inflation of the currency. It is surprising how many members of Congress express a willingness to even vote for a fifteen or sixteen to one bill, Even greater numbers have no hesitancy in private conversation to say they would like to see the U. 8. government issue enough currency to retire some of its present obll* gallons. AS l have said before our reserve base is sufficiently broad to permit such a thing up to a certain point which is still a long way off, ! Urge to Change It has been said that such talk is tbe moving spirit of an urge on the part of some to change the House Rules requiring a majority of the total membership to take a bin away from a commit* tee Jn place of 146 as is now tne case, it seems to many that tne latter number is sufficient unless a small group should connive to deliberately obstruct administration in its effort to promote a P W ?i rejlef «*»W»ttw which would certainly not meet with the approval of the rank a»4 file of people, WasWBgtoa ia looking forward with considerable interest to tbe forthcoming international conference.

WHAT OTHER EWTORS SAY Good Neighbor, Good Citizen William Kneeiand, for many years a resident ot Eugene, died Friday. Mr. Kneeiand was a retired merchant from Iowa. Bis most active years i» business were spent in Iowa. He came to Eugene to enjoy the beauties ol tbe Oregon country and to give his children tho advantages ol iSX, u £W5 * 8 * *,*? H«*™*Ky nally last Wednesday and becom^ ing a tew on the signature of the goTernor. Introduced ia January, this bill provided for a horitontal cut of SS per cent in Uses of all kinds in this state. The bill was delayed and finally reported and after a terrific battle in the Sett' ate was passed. U went to the House and was contested pro and coa, with amendments being offered freely to make it appear doubtful whether it ever would emerge as a law. The Rouse cut the cut to IS per cent, and the bill went back to the Senate. Friends of the original bill there restored the amount to 20 per cent to be cot from the taxes levied in 1930, the reduced amount to be collected in 1934. Back to the House it went for concurrence, and mailed. Thereupon a conference committee composed of members of both houses revamped the bill and recommended It for passage with the 20 per cent cut. The bill passed the House again last week by a -vote of 57 to SO, two more than is required for a constitutional majority. In debating this bill it had to be considered that the state board of assessment and review bad or- >ftontht ago, and tfctt added to the io per cent cat now voted means that all taxing «*• trfeft mast Contrive to do with about is per eent let* tax motet than heretotore. FHetdt ot the Wfl claimed that ft would eausft a sating ot ten million dottaft in tatet fof next year; opponents claimed that ft would not sate mote than five millions, and that ft win seriously cripple school and dty activities. Levies tot state, county poof, soldiers bonus, bonds and interest ate exempted from the effect of the new taw, which wtit toon be op* eratrve at ft received the signature ot the governor eatly last week. AHotlief Dendency This General Assembly has soaked the deficiency Jadgttent racket tore and aft j hit it on the chin and kicked it on the shins, the latest bill in that connection hat become a law and applies to such judgments already issued and provides their cannot be collected for two years and that after five years are outlawed entirely. Other bills provide against the future Issuance ot deficiency judgments, but this one it retroactive. Aa attempt to paw the bill pro* Tiding tor a cut of the salary ot Highway Commission Engineer Fred White front 19,000 a year to $4,000, met with defeat in the House last week. It takes a two- thirds vote to take a bill from the tilting committee. New Delegation Boost* Corn Alcohol Sixty men met at a Des Molnes hotel last Tuesday and vigorously renewed the battle for industrial grain alcohol in Iowa to help use up the surplus corn crop. These men were from twenty-seven towns and cities in the state, or from farms near those cities, and they mean basinets. Evidently, the i n d o m i t a ble Spenceritet organised and brought about this renewed effort for corn alcohol. Leo Dalley, secretary of the Spencer Chamber of Commerce, acted at leader of the meeting in Des Moinet, while Judge Loverein of Spencer actively participated in the discussions and presented a new draft of a short and effective bill for an act legalizing the proposed 10 per cent of alcohol with gasoline at motor fuel. «*t«s.

Herring, after a few direct qnestlons at to application ot the law, agreed te favor such a bill and have hi* forces try to get it pasted at this session. Pot one thing, the proposed taw wilt not be mandatory n M far as compelling all motorists to use the alcohol-gasoline mixture, but will add a five per cent tax per gallon for gasoline not Containing the mixture. Experts have now tested the mix* ure in 700 cars with accurate re* suits, showing that with the cheaper grades of gasoline, alcohol talxed on a ten per cent basis actually produces better than two and a half miles more transpoiv tatlon per gallon. Proponents of the law contemplate that at least 26 small capacity distilleries may be erected in this state to supply the ISO.000,000 gallons ot alcohol that may be made from 60,000,000 bushels of corn, while eventually twice that much will be required. It wai stated positively to the governor and in the meeting that tests have proven that the use of this Industrial alcohol with gasoline will not necessarily add to the cost of gasoline to the consumer. On that point alone was the bill once defeated in the House at this session. A resolution was passed by the House Friday to continue the investigation into cement purchases by the Highway Commission, with the assistance of the Attorney General, and) appropriating f 3,000 for the expense of the same.

Constitution*! Conveatloit July id Oov. Herring Friday announced i* had fixed June 20 at thi date for holding the county conven- tiont to select delegates to the state constitutional convention, to act on the repeat of the iith amendment, and would fit the date of the convention as July 10. each county will nominate one wet and one dry delegate. These will be ati put on one official ballot and voted upon by the entire state, and the list receiving the largest state-wide vote, will form the convention and decide the state's ttand on repeal. Senator Late HOJ hat hard time getting his shark" bill out; of the lifting committee for action. It carries provision for reducing Interest rates of these loan agents who work in cities from three per cent per month to two per cent. The bill it lost for this session.
