EDITORIAL We're hoping for a New Deal from the weatherman shortly. The two great fallacies of the age: (1) We can borrow ourselves out of debt. (2) We can drink ourselves out of the liquor evils. These are Interesting times nationally. President Roosevelt told Congress last week to either leave the cut in the pension and veteran disability payments na he proposed or to devise sufficient new taxes to make up the difference. Now Congress must determine which will be the worst to face, the Vets with their reduced pensions or taxpayers with their increased tax burden. Interesting figures: The deaths from the Chinese-Japanese hostilities the past two years totalled 60.000 for the Chinese and 10,000 for the Japanese. In 1931 31,000 people were killed by autos in the U. 8. In 1932 29,000 people were thus killed. Learn to swim this summer. Malvern's municipal pool makes a wonderful place not only to find relief from summer heat but to learn this valuable skill. There are few summer sports as enjoyable as swimming and expert skill at the exercise greatly increases the pleasure. Besides, the ability to swim is often invaluable and frequently has prevented loss of life. Take the opportunity this summer to learn to swim. In case you have forgotten the present Senate investigation in which the House of Morgan is getting so much publicity was started more than a year ago for the purpose of de- : teraining depression. It seems that nearly everyone's heard ot that. These are dark nights in Malvern's residential districts. Parents this summer will flnd that their children will enjoy the swimming pool more, and with far less danger to their health, if they insist that they do not stay in the water too long at a time. Man, after all, is not amphibian, and his physique is not entirely adapted to being in water. Staying in too long at a time ...» *W wtt-^jfy nf thfl -'aWJOTW susceptible to disease which ordinarily could be resisted without danger. A time limitation of an hour at the most would be wise. tfie staie Toa* recently made wnfch wffl release ptbTfe funds frozen fn closed banks snonld have an Infiattonaty effect In this state. For ft win enable the various taxing bodies to pay off many anticipatory warrants and most of the money thus put out will be spent shortly for commodfttes or in payment of bills. The World Economic conference is now in session and has started more auspiciously than any of the world conferences in recent years. The task before It is no small one — that of satisfying by a single agreement hundreds of diverse demands. Nothing short ot genius *lll enable the delegates attending toget^goodj-esults. More and more apparent It becomes that on? present taxing system is out-moded and unsuitable to our present economic structure. Perhaps its worst feature is that It breeds heavy debt in prosperous times which must be paid off in time of depression. This makes the tax burden doubly difficult and It usually falls on those less able to bear it. The possibility of a gross sales tax, aided by a graduated net Income tax holds considerable promise as a solution to the tax question. Not only would the tax burden be fa? more equitably distributed, but the method of collection and general principal would have an Important stabilizing effect on price fluctuations. Thus as the commodity price Index fell or rose, the tax burden would keep apace, while under the present system it has an exactly opposite effect. We believe that if the tax payers of the country, large and small, would make a careful study of the two above methods that they would recognize its rich possibilities. For while the tax burden is light compared with our other expenditures in most years, it has an influential effect in causing economic instability. [N WASHINGTON By Otha D. Wearin Representative, Seventh Iowa District The extra session of the 73rd Congress is about to adjourn. Some final conference reports are scheduled to appear in the House today. Yesterday Floor Leader Byrns made the statement that we will undoubtedly finish our work some time Saturday eve- brsscn oi tte government to operate wftn in* exeetrtH'e. It SboniM *% observed that wfcen ftoo*etsft came into power the govern**** was verging upon bankruptcy ftn£ economic conditions were at an extremely tow ebb. He catted Congress into session at once and began to ftet. Today as we near tbe conclusion of OUT etoftt, the budget tt practically balanced, much emergency legislation baft been placed «pon tbe statutes and there fa a distinctly better trend to the btrtt- ness of tie entire country. Apparently the people have unusual confidence in the leadership of tbe President, tie has repeatedly stated that fee will endeavor to use tbe new legislation in sttch a manner thai the people as a whole will profit. He has also stated that It will undoubtedly be necessary to make adjustments from time to time in the operation of the respective projects. That is ail indication of the fact that he intends to eliminate injustices to individuals, so far tbe President has delivered on his promises. When Congress adjourns It will have completed one ot the most extensive programs ot legislation in tbe history of the country. Certainly none can claim that the new administration has hot put forth an effort to rebuild the country. History . . aftfos .

In the first. Illinois, the hopes of the prohibitionist was largely as in those who have voted heretofore, to hold the repeal majority as small as possible. The second, Indiana, was hailed by dry leaders as a •Cruciar state and desperate efforts were made to make it the first state to f eject the 21st amendment. Because of the surprising development of the hitherto strongly dry rural areas in shifting considerably to repeal the expected close contest failed '.o materialize and the amendment Was ratified fay approximately a 2 to 1 majority.

The Effects of Alcohol Cannot be Repealed. It is a habit-forming narcotic poison. Legalizing a wrong does not make it right, 3, There is no substitute for prohibition offered by the repealists, The vote June 20 is between prohibition with education or into the blind darkness beyond repeal, 3, Business is bad and could not stand the handicap of putting over two billion dollars (the amount necessary to secure the tax claimed) down our throats, taking it away from the buying power of America. 4, Black strap molasses from Cuba is now used in the distilling of ajco* hoi so that the demand for corn would be infinitesimal compared with the loss of market by the reduction, 5, Repeal For Whwe Prosperity? The organiser of the Association Against the Prohibition Amend» ment, parent of all repeal organizations, revealed in testimony at Washington that his organisation was sponsored and financed by millionaires seeking to reduce income and corporation taxes by securing Uquor taxes, i, e., shifting the heavy tax to drinkers. Irene DuPont alone said he would save $10,000,000 taxes on one of his corporations if we drank and taxed it like England doss, Repeal for the prosperity of millionaires is a tax plan for suckers. 0, One farmer stated the crux of it nil: "Ifllquor were to bring buck prosperity it wouldn't be worth the price,'* VOTERS OF MILLS COUNTY, VOTE RIGHT JUNE 20 dlts out of Chinese province*. * * * * Mean* Control ot Govertifafetit* Wet t»rop»ga«l8 satt "let tie government control tfre handling of btm**."

Hull, the inventor, has just about perfected a device which will bring relief to the heaty. It consists of a gadget which fits over the head and operates from power generated by a windmill device held in front of th(> mouth.
