EDITORIAL Legislature Defeat* Local Option Bill The Iowa house of representatives defeated the amendment to the liquor bill providing for local option, by a vote of 68 to 36. This means that no county, no matter how dry, can get away from the liquor stores or saloons or whatever they may choose to call them. Mills couaty voted dry by a large majority, so did a number of other counties, but, under this vote we shall not be permitted self government in this matter. We shall have the liquor whether we want it or not It's a wise cltlien these days who knows (a) what code he's working under, (b) what administration he's goverened under and (c) what authority controls his utilities. cars never equalled In performance or price. Ford, General Motors and Chrysler seem to lead the field in point of tales and hate been showing considerable courage both ia production and sales stimulation. Liveliest of all V, S. industry, automobile manufacturers have beea the first to step out boldly after business this year. Millions of dollars have been spent in developing aew cars. Aggressive campaigns to sell those cars are now getting under way and upon their success at this will rest the success or failure of the industry financially. It takes courage Indeed to undertake such a program. The auto Industry has exerted a more profound effect on the life of this country than *n? fffntf 6 fA*trttry.

Continuous development and refinement have created a never-ending desire for * new cat and has led to making the country spend more for automotive transportation than for any other one thing. Not IS there any other Industry, not even excepting radio, which has made such extensive Improvements in its product. The car of 1984 ont- modes the ear of 1*88 and next year the genii of the industry Will have a new marvel ready tot its, public. Behind all of this the Industry makes it possible to give the value it does by carrying on a sales promotion policy of a magnitude not even attempted by any other, tt is this feature Which makes possible the mass production and consequent lower prices of the cars, The whole makes up into one of the most romantic and interesting aspects of our commercial world. if you are in need of horses, buy them as soon as possible. Very probably there will be a shortage when spring work demands them. A number of good teams have been listed in the sale advertisements carried by The Leader and reports are that there is a strong market for all sold. ALPtt'ASIf Ian. * issue o! the ftotfte Refc- OTtt.

We can abolish our poverty only by freeing ourselves from the world's poverty.-—James W. Gerard, former. V. 8. ambassador to Germany. History . . of the . . Week An interpretative news summary of the important events of the past week. For the first time. In yean the public prints seem to be concerned because Congress may prove too docile under the Roosevelt leadership. Usually they worry because it acts in another manner. If the CWA just holds out long enough Mills countians will be able to point to 1934 as one of considerable road Improvements, it ia wise to get as many roads improved as possible while this opportunity presents itself. Congratulations to another Mills countlan who has gained national prominence, Mrs. June Fickel, Few will question Mrs. Picket's fitness for her new position nor the fact that she has more than earned it by long service to the party. Moreover it shows a healthy willingness on the part of Democratic national leaders to maintain close contact with the middle- west. The day of the questionnaire is at hand. The Leader received several last week, each seeking information which, if eev» era! thousand others answered the questions, would enable the questioner to determine all manner of important things. Personally we greatly enjoy answering questionnaires even though, we entertain doubt as to any benefit derived there- from, For by answering them we occasionally find out many Muss which we didn't knew previously and no one with a sense of humor can go through the average question sheet without several hearty laughs. AJ! New years resolutions have now been broken sufficiently to justify discarding them, All praise (0 automobile manufacturers who are start* ing the yaar with a series of • By Glendon Williams To the first regular session of the seventy-third Congress President Roosevelt advised the continuation of the extraordinary program for economic reconstruction of the nation which was adopted in the special session of the '100 days' last spring, Mr, Roosevelt listed some of the progress to date: the abolition of child labor, the reopening of banks, the re-employment of millions of workers — and declared that only the hard beginning had been so far accomplished, that the program must be continued so that the ultimate benefits may be realised fully, Some further legislation is necessary, said the president, notably legislation to tighten the income tax laws, banking laws, and to curb the stock exchange speculation. In the international situation the president saw no hope for immediate currency stabilization, or commercial peace, or substantial disarmament. In the budget message which went to the congress the next day the president submitted the most stupendous peace time bill of expenditures ever presented to 41 congress as a not very subtle re* minder that such' brilliant vistas for the future can not be pur* chased cheaply. A nine billion dollar deficit for the next two years can not be avoided, it seems, assuming that the government will be on a self-supporting basis by 1936, Borrowings by June of this year will have swept the national debt far beyond any previous level in history, peace time or war time, and by June, 1935, the debt will be nearly 38 billion dollars, The congress proceeded to the work before it, and observers pro. feased doubt that the session will open any frank conflict between the president and the congress. There were issues on which the administration seemed doomed to he 4teapw>iate4 but wWeb win probably be diplomatically soft- pedalled by administration leaders; 60 senators were oaid to he opposed to the St. Lawrence waterway treaty, senators open spoke against presidential author* ity to trade tariff 'concessions in* teruatloaajly, and. any adminia- trfttlon desire for i fre» .b*n4 with war debt WM threaten^ by militant declarations of legislators about war debts. But, a> though more than a third of the senators have declared in favor of rewonetuauon of silver u Enjoy This Finer Quality seemed likely that in any explosion of the monetary issue the president could defeat either the more radical inflationists or the conservative element • * * * The first definite break in the cabinet of President Roosevelt since his inauguration was the resignation of Secretary of the Treasury Woodin, effective Jan. 1, The resignation followed n extended leave ot absence, for the treatment of his throat. The resignation brought no important change in the treasury department. The new Secretary, Henry Morgentbau, has been acting Secretary for well over a month, or since Mr, Woodin was given leave of absence. Mr. Morgenthan'r fiscal assistant and personal friend, Earle Bailie, did not become undersecretary, however, as be was generally supposed to when his chief was promoted. His connection with an investment firm which had floated Peruvian bonds which have since been defaulted brought criticism which is credited as the real cause of his resignation from public service. » • » * The HiUer effort to reduce the fixed charges of the Qerman government brought a protest last week from America to add to that of Great Britain, In effect, the German government bad reduced the Interest service on its bonds other than, those under the Daves and Young i loans to 4,55% for 7% bonds and 3.9% for 6% bonds, The position of the American protest was that the reduction in payments should properly be made only by agreement of the debtor and the creditors, » » » * Io France » gorernmeat wai perilously near failure, this time not for the budget nor for for' eign relations but lor a *c»ndal from the activities of an alleged The swindler had obtained f 9V* ernnjeat support tor an issue of bonds on a strle* of pawnshops, the minister of colonies had gone so Car a* to write letten to to surance companies urging invest- we«t ift pawashop bonds though not specjftcally the boud.1 1% °,u«» Hundreds pf wiiUoes were paid for fake hoadi; promoter, '«&n4*oin.e, visky, to the »ubj§ct ol treat the Prsjwh «Qvw»jfte«t over th* world, til* gsver»8Mfit &Q* ebArged wltfe tfc.9 «hajrg» oj fftrce % yol* oj Big problem for machine age propagandists |s to make us believe that everything we' used to do by haad\was drudgery and that the machine relieves us of all that. Comes now a minority report from 'Some signed correspondent who harks back with sentimental longing to the Churning Day. -f-t-1- Dear F. T. U: Just some raw material for your column if you caa use it: Occasionally we meet a plump, smiling, hearty looking farmer and inquire as to how he gets that way. Invariably we learn .that his wife makes their own butter. No rancid oleo ruins his disposition, so he grins. What has become of the old fashioned Churning DayT Has the making ot solid balls ot butter in the home become a lost art along with «weaving and spinning? How many girls of high school age today would be able to make a pound of salty toothsome butter? Who knows why the churning cones so slow on some days and rapidly on other occasions? Is there some magic about it? "' Twl«*1a "week our family. Gallons ot rich, yellow cream were poured into the churn "to be manufactured into luscious edible gold. Churning was a chore but not halt bad. We preferred a game of hopscotch or leapfrog of course, but the call of the churn was not such a task as to sour our sunny disposition. We knew the rewards that followed. The churn rotated with a crank and you could follow the New Deal In liquor and sit down on the job. It took no mental effort to grind the paddles, so you could read aa you worked. "The Toledo Blade," fine old sensational family sheet? with its blood curdling cuts and biasing headlines made food tor the brain as you also developed bulging mus* cles. No sound boy ever passed a day, without measuring up the bulge in bis arm muscles and hoping they would get as large as the ones on John I* Sullivan, There .were other rare old lit* erary treasures, We bad a red hound book entitled, "Adventures Among the Indians." Old Pan Boone w»s the hero, We glued our eyes to the tales ot battles. warwhoops, scalping parties, un* til we lost all sense ot surround* ing* and the churn. Then a ma< ter»al yojpe came from the kitchen, "Sonny, why do you stop churning!'* That arous,ed us to the }884 conditions osce mart iMtead #{ enJeyiBg the pieftsurea ot the pioneer homie'ot l§3Q t Then the sburn, muffled the eree. tensr el its "whey," : When the girls ehurued read different hooksi.

She took eft the lid "and poured wat«f into the churn whey, we never did understand. The golden clumps of butter were taken oat and kneaded until they lest their liquid content and became hard balls, well salted, tn a pound stamp they took on the Impression of a sheaf of wheat with curlymacttes. Pound after pound of .butter was made, enough to feed the family with a surplus left to sell to the grocer In exchange for beans. Then came the reward. There were gallons of buttermilk, frelh from the churn. O, for the sound of a slushing churn once morel Two O's for the taste of six plats of buttermilk drunk ia rotation and without cessation.

The goat simply didn't'fit in. Ashamed to display his Ignorance at headquarters, he telephoned to a friend, giving a description of the anmial, and asking what it might be, "He had large, sad eyes, a strangely long beard, rough and unkept hair, and his behind was bare," the appraiser explained.
