EDITORIAL We nominate for some Improving— in the way of raking, seeding and mowing — Paddock park, as pretty a commons as there is in these parts when properly kept. These are days when it takes a strong man to resist the temptation to plant a rosebush. Few things bring the pleasure that does a good job well done. Lazy people have always dreamed of electing or obtaining a wise, beneflclent governing body which will rule them in the best manner possible with no effort at all on their part. This is as impossible as perpetual motion. Good government, like a good garden, must be constantly cultivated. Just think how many persons you could put to work now if you were sure that your income from now on would Justify those many improvements which have been delayed for so long. ieft. tie teof fttft t*en tried enttofy ss * strtitttntft M cote*, *nl ft fttedMne at a afnrette, Stomachic, tettS ebofelagogtfe. -t-i-t- J3SK**on Witt* wa* * plant that ft *trt*ei Just what would you do if you were a senior being graduated from high school tbis year? There are several thousand ways to make a living in tbis world but none seem extraordinarily successful just now. surprising thing of the season is how long a time it takes for the first potato plants to appear and how quickly the weeds get started. Nations wax and wane, governments rise and fall, war and persecutions, as in centuries past, add their weight of grief and anxiety to a puzzled and disjointed world, but Motherhood, with its Ideals of loyalty, sacrifice and devotion withstands all these, remaining the one universal bond of sympathy and understanding on which humanity may depend. Whether in the wilds of Tibet or in the African bush; on a fronded isle in the midst of the Pacific or in the center of Western civilization the Mother We have never seriously considered the threat of national dictatorship wblcb many conservatives are suggesting that President Roosevelt is making. Nevertheless it must be admitted that a most unusual grant of powers is made to the President by the new farm bill. We believe that Mr. Roosevelt and Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, will handle tbeir powers carefully and tor the public good but Congress signed away no small part of their constitutional privileges — and responsibilities — by the farm bill. Contrary to a popular belief, a dictatorship is not the most efficient nor best form of government, A dictatorship removes from tbe people not only tbeir rights for self government, but tbeir feeling of responsibility for their govern-- njent and tbeir initiative as well. Constant vigilance is now, as always, not only the price of liberty but of good government as well. There is no other o? easier method, Good govern' IBIB 'liSS since man emerged from the primitive' it has been only in tbe past twenty-five years that a Mothers Day has been observed and public recognition given to ber unfailing devotion, ber tenderness, her Belt- sacrifice. Recently the observance of the day has taken on a new significance, Formerly it emphasized tbe remembrance of one's own mother — flowers, gifts, messages, it she were living a white carnation worn if she had passed to her heavenly reward. But the economic crisis, which has, in effect, leveled society, bringing home to countless thousands the kinship of poverty and one's duty to one's neighbor, has emphasized anew tbe obligation of tbe more fortunate to those who bave borne the full brunt of tbe depression. So that today we have a golden rule observance of Mothers Day, with "forgotten" mothers and dependent children sharing In tbe gifts and memorials to Mothers. This plan is sponsored by tbe Golden Rule Foundation of New York, that reminds us that "these are praying not for flowers but for flour; not for candy but for bread; not for books but for food and shelter," Mai VOID'S Moving Mountain Out in Colorado famed Carbon mountain, with many rumblings and smoklngs, is slowly moving away while Coloradoans and imported scientists gape. Here in Malvern similar geologic disturbances have occurred. Neighbors noted one day last week the arrival of something of a mountain in the front lawn of Vern McCord's homestead. -f-t-1- There rested three boulders, the largest a piece of red granite weighing possibly 0000 pounds. Pound in an outcropping of the lithosphcre near the Weak* farm southwest of Malvern, the boulder waa dragged out on a stone boat, the boat pulled by three car*. Assisting waa the McCord sedan, the light truck and Earl McCormlck'8 Ford pickup. -f-t-1- Other additions to the list of enthusiastic rock gardeners are Dr. J. o. Laird and L. R.

Writes Noab Webster's dictionary hirelings about tbe delightful plant: "A well-known clchorla- ceous plant (Taraxacum taraxa- cum) abundant as a weed in meadows and cultivated ground throughout Europe, Asia and North America; also, any other species of Taraxacum. They are scapose perennials (see above) with long taproots, toothed or plnnatifid leaves and heads of bright yellow flowers.

Upon several occasions cat* and dogs have been men to pop down the steps, emerge from ttie en. try, scurry around the corner of the building, banking steeply on the turn, and make off in any given direction.

Mr. conversations continued last week with Italian, German, and Argentine representatives now In the capital. Meanwhile Ramsay McDonald and Edouard Herrlot returned to England and France and presented results of their visits to their governments. Italy Indicated Its endorsement of the Roosevelt tariff truce but France and Great Britain, with their eyes on the gradual fall of the dollar, qualified their acceptances with reservations adapted to their "peculiar" circumstances. Observers, noting the trend of the conversations, pointed out that President Roosevelt had acquired a potent weapon as he revealed his willingness to depreciate tl. 8. currency to meet competition of countries already on an inflation hasls. The extent of this will be revealed at the world economic conference. Meanwhile the dollar continued to drift •lowly lower on foreign exchanges against both the pound and tbe franc. y Norman Davis, ambwwador at large, continued to frequent European capitals in the interest of tbe tariff truce. In Iowa the convention of the National Farmers Holiday association considered for the second time a nation-wide embargo of farm products. Although their president, bristly - haired Milo Reno, had qualified the threat of May 18. tne actual declaration innst be made by tbe national board of the association, also dominated by Reno. Reno immediately npped bis conditions to Include passage by Congress of the Frazler bill, remonetlzatlon of silver, Patman bonus bill and cost of production clause in tbe farm bill.
