EDITORIAL What has become of the vital concern ot 1928 about Youth's position In the world of today? Perhaps Youth isn't BO sure now that it can do a better job of running the old world. We may deplore the lack of the old-time 24-Inch snow storms but the 3-Inch fall of last week seemed plenty to above! off the walks. The New Deal may be considered a success when and if it becomes possible for the man who pays its costs to get 50c an hour for his labors. The debate in the Iowa House of Representatives as to whether to have the state serve bard liquor by the glass or in bottles was decided, we pre- aume ( upon the assuaptio^ that alcohol from the one was more intoxicating than from tne other, One of the strangest things about this old world is that tbe majority of people in each nation think that their country is best. Thia week The Leader carries the dates and places of the township meetings for the corn- hog reduction program. At these meetings all farmers will be given opportunity not only to sign the reduction contract, but to learn more about tbe SO HE BOUGHT A Wrench and Became A PLUMBER But we wish he had entered some other trade. For we 'spent five years as an apprentice under an experienced plumber, plus much special study of plumbing science, plus rnuch money for necessary anil efficient equipment before we felt we could offer our services to anyone in need of plumb- Ing -work. So does every licensed plumber. That's why the licensed plumber will give you a better plumbing job for less money. Not because he charges less per boar, but because his experience and knowledge enables him to do the work without experimentation or guess work and enables hint to use the proper type of equipment and materials. The many jobs we have doue in this vicinity during our 17 years of work Uere are the beat reference we can oiler. J. R CAROWELL I4cw»*e4 Master PlUWtaf Plwwo tW ,:, Mulvera program and to find out administrative regulations to fit his particular needs. While considerable Information has been published not only In this paper but In the other county and state papers as well regarding the program, there is undoubtedly much uncertainty even yet in the minds of producers who would be affected. Attendance at the township meetings will enable those in charge to iron out Individual questions and problems. It will be necessary for farmers who sign the reduction agreements to proceed with care in the organization ot the Community Committees and the County Corn Hog Control association for these groups will have charge of the local administration of the plan. A plan involving this complexity must necessarily have much of confusion and uncertainty about it and the only way to cope with such will be to exercise extreme care in the selection of those who will be in charge of the administration. The benefits for reduction ot production are fairly liberal and it is highly possible that the inflationary effect of these benefits and other governmental largess distributed during tbe recovery program will have a more helpful, effect on our economic difficulty that the proposed reduction. And whether the recovery program* will be more than a temporary stimulus will continue to be a moot question and will remain unsettled until it is time tested. The Leader, not being omniscient, cannot accurately judge the advisability of each farmer following the reduction plan. That must very much be done by each individual and judgment should not be rendered until a thorough study has been made. Present Indications are that Congress might Just as well shut up shop and come home. At least that is the attitude of Post Master General Farley who threatens with the somewhat empty thought of political oblivion thoae Congressmen who might feel disposed to take exception to any of the Roosevelt program. Immediate adjournment would save the cost of printing the Congressional Record. However, even the most ardent of President Roosevelt's admirers refuse to admit his infallibility. Consequently there Is genuine need for Congress to remain in session and for Congress to weigh with more than customary consideration the administrative measures It Is asked to approve. And such suggestions as that by Mr. Farley should make every Congressman doubly critical of administrative measures. A fascist state in this country is at present unthinkable and will remain so if we Insist upon our governmental officials fulBlllng their responsibilities. Danger of dictatorship and the consequent loss of individual liberty aud well being comes only when timid Con- gressmeu take seriously such, suggestions, as Mr. Farley's a»d let fear of the type of repralsal he threatens affect their legislative judgment. According to tbe present liluna of the utitte liquor leg la- Enjoy Thii Finer Quality HO*I ill AH lation this conrmuAtty soon hate a state liquor dispensary for the benefit of its thirsty citizens. This, of course, will be of great assistance to temperance as people are prone to drink only when It is difficult to obtain liquor; and conversely, to be temperate only when llqnor is plentifully available. Yes, we admit, too, that tbe logic of this is a bit difficult to follow but onr best minds tell os it works that way. Notice of Heafiftg IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF IOWA.

Moot* 1» History of the. Wrik An interpretative news summary of the Important events of the past week. By Olendon Williams tn the second week of the regular session of the seventy-third congress the administration program still moved forward without effective opposition. Administration views ruled the decisions on veterans' compensation, wages for government workers, and on the liquor revenue law. The one point on which some measure of defeat for the administration seemed likely was the St. Lawrence waterway treaty. Enough senators are said to be opposed to the treaty as it was submitted to prevent its ratification. Reservations which would gain enough votes for tbe treaty to insure its ratification were said to be Impossible of acceptance by Canada. The senate did attempt one expression of Independent sentiment with the liquor revenue bill. Import levies were incorporated in the bill which were meant to discriminate against imports ot liquors from nations which were in default on inter-governmental obligations to the United States. Pressure from the administration changed the minds of enough democratic senators to eliminate the provision, with the excuse that such a section would make it impossible for the president to carry on bis tariff bargaining with a free hand. " Senate investigators received some significant Information in the history of the Detroit banking crisis from Mr. Edsel Ford. The | younger Mr. Ford told of the Ford efforts to prop the Guardian group of banks, of the refusal of the RFC to make the necessary loans to let the Fords be released from their support, of the refusal of the Fords to further help Detroit banks at the request of figures in the Hoover administration, and the enormous losses to the Ford interests in tbe Detroit crisis. The senate committee absorbed the testimony in its stride and went on to the testimony of the investigators employed to sift the facts concerning the banking crash which precipitated the series of events climaxed by the nation wide spring. bank holiday last * * « » In tho maze of facts, rumors, and innuendos connected with the monetary plans of the administration one fact and one subsequent statement of the president were used as the source of suspicions that some devaluation of the dollar is imminent. The fact was the request of the president for an opinion from the Attorney-General and the subsequent opinion about the president's power to call to the treasury the 3600 billions of dollars Of gold held by the Federal Reserve System. The president later declared that he had the power, under the Thomas amendment to the farm bill, to call the gold. The profits which would accrue to the government with a devaluation of the dollar to a fifty-cent gold value would finance nearly one-half of the deficit contemplated for the ascal years 1934 and 1936. » * t * The most effective farm blockade of all those attempted in the last three years was ended aftw the city of Chicago had expert enced u genuine famine of milk and cream, tor five days, and. highways into Chicago had the scene ot violence »ud sabotage.

The market for the bonds took a large upturn on the appearance of specific legislation to define tbe government responsibility. The situation, the president pointed out, called for this action to Insure the continued effective activity of the farm credit program. * * • • Tho navy'n 'routine transfer* of six officers, twenty-two enlisted men, and six seaplanes from California to Hawaii was the official reason for one ot the most spectacular mass flights of aviation history. Smoothly, without mishap, and with almost, casual attitude toward the flight the six planes accomplished the flight from San Francisco to Pearl Harbor, 2160 nautical miles, entirely over water. The flight was the subject ot congratulatory messages from many of the air forces ot the world. But the reaction from Japan was mixed with the publication of an interview with a ranking, Japanese army officer which viewed withAlarm the prospect of a Itoordi attack fcj; Russia and a hostile fleet, interpreted as a United States fleet, on''Japan. The interview expressed the suspicion that the visits of Col. Lindbergh and Harold Bromley were in fact missions of espionage.

"Since the purpose of the plan is to put men to work and to leave out the machinery," he suggested, "why not have them throw away the picks and shovels and use spoons as they could then accomplish far less per hour of work.
