The .best pl»n !• to icod the change of address In EDITORIAL Now that Russia is all recognized we rather wonder why the job was delayed so long. Perhaps it was in unintentional retaliation for Russia's similar delay when we sought recognition. Speaking of public works just what would you do, privately, if you could borrow money at four per cent interest to build some private Improvement? Regardless of the storm of criticism which has greeted the publication of tbe Brooklngs Institution report regarding Iowa government, much of value is contained therein. The truth is tbat this state, like all states, has a highly complicated elective system which distributes responsibility too •widely and which brings tbe ,, confusion of the long ballot to present government order overboard and shifting into A new, untried plan, but on the other hand we are not entirely blind to the evils of tbe present system. For example there are now elected in this state a large number of officials whose duties are purely professional and in no way policy-forming. It is similar to the plan of having a popular election to hire a new typist, printer or other skilled workman. Since a vote-getter is not always efficient otherwise, It would be possible to elect persons who had no skill or knew nothing about the work to be done. When matters of policy are involved the officials should always be elective. For ours is a government of law and the administration of those laws is tbe primary function of off}- cials. Thus members of boards of supervisors, of the General Assembly, and of similar organizations determine policy and need no special trade or craft or profession to do so in the public Interest. Thus such must always be elected directly by tbe people and must accept Quality Means Nothing (talent it Mean* ECONOMY The fact tbat McDonald, fully automatic whispering heat oil burners are made of the highest quality of materials, are engineered according to the most efficient and advanced designs and are of top quality throughout, means nothing ynless it means more economical heating Cor you. But that's just what it means. Constant temperature control, fully automatic burning and lighting, "WbJapartog heat" (the most effleleut type of fuel CowhuBtton) all combine to give you sot oaly coavenl- sat 8BU cojtttortftble heat. but a« foil responsibility for the conduct of the government. On the other band there are numerous accountants, clerks, secretaries, etc., in whom are not entrusted the function of forming governmental policies but who must do highly skilled work efficiently, it is possible that this class of public offi* clals should be appointed and the boards, governors, etc., who appoint any of this second group should be fully responsible to the electorate for the efficient conduct of the appointees. Thus appointed government employes could be required to have a certain minimum of skill In the work they must do and could expect to hold office, regardless of political changes, as long as their work was efficient and properly done. We believe that the government employes would favor this more than the present elective method whereby they undergo tbe danger of dismissal every election regardless of how well their work is done. Government must grow and change just as well as other human activities. The General Assembly should study the Brookings report carefully and should be open minded as to beneficial suggestions made. Up to now history has recorded no perfect system of government which signifies that tbe beat of, yesterday migbt well be improved today. WTtenever 1 have a particularly difficult time meetitg the Mils cast envious glances in the direction of 1. P. Morgan, tbe Rockefellers and others with too much money and think how much more agreeably t could spend their olc money even if I can't ears it Take a million for instance. -f-t-1- i should fte strongly first to hire A full time man to cart oft all of the old buggies, wheel*, etc. which Hallowe'en* era insist oil leaving in Paddock park. A great idea hut it wouldn't take enough of the million. -f-t-1* And while we're on Paddock park 1 might even be induced, it a committee would come around, to buy the rest of the block, move the buildings off and make the park a full square block. Big hearted (now) 1 wouldn't let them change the name, either. -f-t-1- I've been thinking some of paying off (he town municipal debt, but that might not be altruistic. On second thought t would refinance it for the town (all free, of course, or for only • one per cent) and have wealthy citizens carry the town's paper. Then when they paid their taxes they would merely be helping their own investment* and that would make them awfully happy. -f-t-1- One big trouble with us philanthropists Is that when we really get philanthropic our money comes right back to us. Thus far 1 still have most of the million left. -M-l- It might bo fun to take over the financing of the fair association and perhaps set them up to a season free from fear of deficit for once. Then Secretary Summers, the falr'a 1m. pressarto, could hire a whole mess of the world's beat enter, tainers and the fair attendance would break all records. And if it didn't, what would be the difference. •f-t-1- There was a hidden purpose in the work at the fair grounds. I've long had in mind the building of a great county park there and perhaps they'd lease aigrapBTB way safety by having every motorist check important features of his car to see that air is in proper condition. Tbe motorist need only to drive to one of the Malvern garages and the check will be made without cost and the results given to the motorist. He then takes this card showing the condition to the American Legion officials and, if everything is up to standard, «a official OK sticker is given him. It is highly important that every car driver do everything possible to make for greater safety on our highways. Poor headlights, unreliable brakes, defective steering gear all are sources for accidents and motorists should see that these are kept in good condition, Tbe free check will give him that information. Of course, good physical equipment Is not tbe only requirement for safe driving. More than anything else, perhaps, tbe skill and care of tbe driver prevents accidents. Tbe driver's personal responsibility to drive carefully, to follow tbe rules of tbe highway and to take no dangerous chances while motoring is paramount to sate highways, while this campaign tor safe equipment Is on would be an excellent time to renew efforts toward safe driving. Highway Notice To all whom it may concern; Frank p. Belknap, Rena Bass, Emma McKown, and Geo. HU- tpn Estate.

Most millionaires afe & little mote careful there. Too hard to get anything back, Just now i might be tempted to endow a few foreign missionaries it they'd let me name the missionaries. There afe several I'd like to send to Patagonia, Tlm- bnktoo, or tbe Aleutian islands. -f-t-1- AA far as building a new chnrch, I'M not stfrw afoot that. If att attendance of 60 per cent of the people of tbe church area conld fee insured by regular members it might be done. If the attendance fell below that the minister and members who believe the new building would be * good thing would pay for it fay annual a*. sessmenta of a full tithe. If the attendance stayed above that point I'd pay every red cent. -M-l- I hardly know what to say about the railroad crossings. Without question some public- spirited feller 'should have 'em mod so that a motorist can both cross 'em and stay in his Car; but I'd want at least two million before starting to rebuild tbe railroads. -f-t-1- Probably before doing any of thcoe things for the town I'd have that little patch of loose plaster, which precariously hangs above my desk, well fixed. Even a millionaire can't be happy with little particle* of plaster liable to fall on him all the time. -f-t-1- On the other hand, I probably wouldn't do any better than Mr.. Rockefeller has done although I' wouldn't mind trying it. I might j even get excited like most of j those in the money and think that' now that I have one million why not get another before giving any away. •f-t-l- ,Or I might take all of tbe money and leave Iowa and Halvern and jp> out to California and »pend|lt with the real e*. •??7. •(• "-1. • -=i-t . t t Aa firtirpf 8UOHI «««t Itfittftry of tfr« tl* WrSl Aft e* tm «AT» ttaffte rec- Lftvffiot Rooseirett fotarti of RnsWft *• coircrn<leei.

Although the provisions of the understanding Included the specification In each case touching on American rights that the benefits Shall not be less favorable thai) those of the most favored nation observers expressed tbe thought that In each provision the concessions of the Soviet government Were more liberal than to any other power. The prohibition against propa* ganda extended to ail organisa- tions receiving any form of flnan* cial assistance- from the governments of the two nations. To balance this concession by the soviet there was a provision that, with' in constitutional limits, the governments would suppress organizations pretending to be the real or proper governments of the other and organizations planning the overthrow of the current governments. The latter ' provisions were interpreted as directed specifically at any White Russian in the United States. Rights of Americans in Russia to religious freedom were positively guaranteed, with citations of Soviet law to support the guarantee. A guarantee was given that **dmfgirtoT» to KftAste shwiTd: tot be dfettfetf to Wry Attetftft* *#• eatrt« of ftftf weTwtastfcat Stattrt.

Claims fof damages to the Soviet by tbe American Expedition to Siberia were waived. Conversations toward an understanding about claims and trade were immediately finder way, although it was bettered that formulas for aft understanding had been discussed in the previous conversations. An adviser to the Agricultural Adjustment Administration, a Mr. Smith Brookhart, who has been engaged In a study of possibilities of Russian trade estimated that 680 million dollars of trade awaited the establishment of proper credit facilities. * » » » '• The administration fof the greater pan of last week held its bid for gold steady at $31.66, apparently attempting to regain control of runaway dollar rates. Foreign exchange continued wild and beyond the control of the managed currency ambitions of the president. Domestic markets continued erratic and unsettled. The definite commitment of administration to Inflationist thought, however, was read into the elimination of 'sound money' influence In the treasury depart* ment. Henry Morgenthau, Jr., became acting Secretary, as Secretary Woodln was given an indefinite, leave of absence and the resignation of Undersecretary Dean Atcheson was accepted 'with Mr. ftw>#*v*ft ftft tMlftt *tl- hrt* of it *¥@rm ¥ flri iHJst »<5r« *M flrof B 'of o-f Co»ra*Tc« wt.1t* had Jet *aftrBhttr*tlOTi AM c*Tl« I ft* ftftnafSA «6l»i projeei i i bf ft*d*f of dl* fcftd ft sn e*«rtfV6 blotlc *!t<# s**atof , to pf *rt the can.ft ^.lA.— .JsM-grJJIifc reoovery. were of rtlVfsr and HrtlatftfnM were propoWng to ttvettigate t i conspiracy to discredit and defeat' the prestdfthl's fiWttetafy pi»fi«. *1fgfrt ef Atnetttaa capital t London lit the tfttrt three months > was estimated by gtKlfch agencies at 876 million * * * e At Won* City, low*, the pott*! < authorities had in obtaining & conviction a Mr. Oscar Hariieii who oai been sought for some years after, rather ineffeetitV warnings tol small investors.

Democrats in the Senate are still smiling when they think how Republican State Chairman Stevens and ex-Chairman Spangler slipped on their first attempt to set things up.
