"QUY Christmas seals--fight tuberculosis--is the annual holiday plea now going out by the affiliated tuberculosis associations of the country. Gaily colored seals to be used in decoration of Christmas packages will be on sale shortly in this state under direction of the Iowa Tuberculosis association. Mason Citys response to the seal campaign is annually large and it is hoped this year will be no exception. Work of the 2,084 tuberculosis associations of the country is carried on principally through the annual seal campaign. Statistics show that tuberculosis kills more persons between the ages of 15 and 45 than.any other diseases--that one out of every three young women who die between the ages of 15 and 30 die from tuberculosis--that it kills more children under 21 than any other communicable disease. The Christmas seal campaign is a worthy one. OTHER EDITORS A FORGOTTEN PERIOD Â·MEMORIAL services were held recently at Oxon Hill Manor, Prince Georges county, Maryland, for a man who played an important part in the initial history of this nation and who was really the first chief executive of the government which was finally to develop into the United States of today. The services commemorated the one hundred fiftieth anniversary of the death of John Hanson, who presided over the first congress of the confederation of the colonies, that acted as government for the colonies, the revolution transformed into states, from shortly after the surrender at Yorktown in 1781 until the present government was established with the inauguration of George Washington as the first president of the United States April 30, 1789. Mr. Hanson was the president of the congress of 1781-1782. This congress acted on many important matters largely growing out of the conclusion of the war of the Revolution. It is a t\ period of history that is little studied and few } are familiar with the trials and tribulations ! which attended the establishment of the new I government which succeeded and was really a i continuation of the congresses that had govern- ied the country from 1776 until 1781. ) Mr. Hanson was a man of ability. He was a strong friend of George Washington and supported him loyally when he was attacked during (the Revolution. He was also an officer in Washington's army, having commanded a detachment of the continental troops from Maryland. His death occurred in 1783. : Few in the nation ever heard of John Han- v son. Most of us date our knowledge of the 7 history of the United States as a nation with the administration of George Washington. Yet, the history of the government of the confederated; states from 1781 to 1789 is replete with interesting situations that had a large bearing on the future life of this country. Its land grants to Revolutionary officers and soldiers and plans for the building of roads toward the then almost unknown frontier to the westward shaped the destinies that afterwards created such states as Ohio and Kentucky. They are days that should not be passed over in studying the building of this nation. Memorial services to John Hanson have a large \ meaning. They call attention to a period in our history which was far more important than many of us now realize. GAME AS A REPLACEMENT CKO1 1 Merrill Gaffney in Waterloo Courier: The bureau of Biological survey, United States department oE agriculture, suggests that farmers taking wheat, corn and other crops out of production in conformity with the government's program for cutting clown production, utilize game birds and animals as a replacement crop. W. L. McAtee, biologist in charge of the "bureau's studies of game propagation, suggests that "The most economical and effective method known for increasing stocks of game is improvement of the environment. The greatest hindrance to game production in areas of intensive farming is deficiency of cover, and in less cultivated or overgrown lands it Is lack of food." The growing of game-food crops, restoration of game cover through erosion and increased acreage of farm woodlots are some of the recommendations made by the biologist. He points out that "Crops that can be used and in nowise conflict with the agricultural adjustment program include bush covers and beggarwceds (lespedcza), cowpeas, soy beans, sudan graas, sorghums, millets, hemp, flax and sunflower. It ia a well known fact that in periods of depression the value of game as a food resource becomes more widely appreciated. More game is shot. There is a serious danger that the supply of game will be appreciably decreased under the pressure of increased hunting. The crop reduction program offers an opportunity for farmers to co-operate in game conservation without inconvenience. In fact, the increased tendency of farmers to collect fees for hunting on their premises indicates that many farmers will avail themselves of the opportunity to help sportsmen and themselves simultaneously. POLITICS MAKES STRANGE BEDFELLOWS Lake Mills Graphic: It is amusing to watch the big new family of democrats continually increase. In hopes of getting "an appointment," new would-be democrats are trying to climb on the wagon almost daily. In fact, it has gotten to be almost as popular to be a democrat these days aa it was to be a Swede when Lindbergh had just mads his trans-Atlantic hop It makes a G. O. P. standpatter ymile, but it must make a dyed-in-the-wool democrat laugh right out loud as he looks over his new bedfellows. If too many keep hopping on the wagon, it's going to break the donkey's back. THEY WON'T BE PROUD LONG Wisconsin State Journal: Governor Ralph's rather blatant approval of the lynching may have fitted California's mood at the moment, but we doubt the people of that state will long take pride in the Incident. Quick justice through the courts would have had an enduring wholesomeneas of influence which mob violence cannot exert. THINGS A11B LOOKING UP Thompson Courier: And while the CWA projects are putting money in the laborers' pockets, the com- hog plan is meeting with enthusiastic approval among the farmers. A half million dollars will be expended in the county for corn loans. Surely things are looking up. THE SALOON RETUENS "OUT, of course, there must be no saloons." How many times have you heard that from those who wanted prohibition repealed so that ; "true temperance" could be promoted? 1 Yet Saturday the Associated Press reported that four states were ready to let liquor be dispensed from the oldtime saloon. Several of the other states and individual cities, ' Deluding Chicago, are going to have saloor out the institution is destined to smell as s' ~2t under another name. In Chicago, for instance, the council is insistent that it be called something other than saloon for the simple reason that patrons must ), sit down to do their drinking. Under this conception of the subject, it's the brass footrail that puts the double o in saloon. The wet press of Chicago is assailing Governor Homer and the state legislature for their failure to have a statewide setup ready to handle legalized liquor. That is a valid criticism so far as the states are concerned and it is a valid criticism so far as the federal administration is concerned. In their anxiety to get prohibition off the books, Messrs. Roosevelt, Farley, et ai., have completely ignored the necessity of assuming responsibility for what happens when governmental sanction is again upon intoxicants. BRITAIN TALKS PLANES Â·TVHERE is plenty of evidence that Great Britain, at least, is growing tired of the continued failure of the disarmament conference to reach any result. The British state of mind was high lighted recently by a brisk debate in the house of commons, in which it was freely stated that unless there is aerial disarmament pretty soon, Great Britain will begin to build an air fleet of much larger proportions. British experts estimate the British air strength as fifth in the world, which j, is no comfort to Britishers remembering the air raids of the World war. There is also a movement in England, strongly supported, to have done with nava! limitations. But in this the pressure for action is much less. Britain's only sea rival is the United States, and there are no open issues between us. Neither does the American position across the Atlantic threaten British domestic safety as do the strong airfleets of the continental Bowers. A FIFTH WHEEL Kstherville News: Although it is true that some of Iowa's main traveled paved highways could be somewhat wider than they are to handle traffic in the safest possible way there hardly is need for a new system of four four-lane trunk lines across the atate. The money could be spent for a more necessary improvement than that. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG DAILY SCRAP BOOK ESIMA1E IN -TriE APMXONA -To 4oo ,000,000,000. OBSERVING BARREL USED AS A By -THE.

W AN ANSWER TO HARRIS MASON CITY, Dec. 4.--There hog been a lot of comment in the newspapers recently about "the NIRA. and the freedom oÂ£ the press." News stories, editoriajs and special feature stuff have been written on the subject, cartoonists have displayed their talent with this subject as a background, and disgruntled politicians have mounted their soap boxes and shouted to the populace that "the freedom of the press is in danger of destruction under the NIRA." About the most asinine statement that has been uttered on the subject ia the one by E. H. Harris of Richmond, Ind., secretary of the American Newspaper Publishers association, when he made a speech before a meeting of the Inland Press association in Chicago a few days ago. Mr. Harris had just returned from Washington, where the A. N. P. A. had been negotiating with the recovery administration the terms of a code for newspapers. Along with a lot of other twaddle, Mr. Harris said that "the refusal of the recovery administration to accept two sections of the proffered code--one intended to safeguard the freedom of the press und the other prohibiting unions from organizing non-union newspaper plants where employes do not desire union affiliation--had placea in jeopard free journalism and free government "Organized labor is in command of the NRA and is attempting- to organize every department of a newspaper plant, Including even the news department. The application of a censorship of the press by organized labor is possible If the newspaper submit to the demands of unions as expressed in the NIRA." What the administration rejected in the proffered code of the newspaper publishers was one section classifying reporters as professionals and therefore exempt from the terms of any code; the other was a section prohibiting unions from organizing the em- ployes of non-union newspaper plants. Mr Harris la the publisher of the Richmond (Ind.) Palladium and Item, a non-union paper. The A, N. P. A.'s attempt to keep reporters on a long hour schedule by offering them the label of "Professor" was merely a scheme to do a little chiseling. The anti-unionists in the A N. P. A. also know that employes in non-union newspaper plants or any place else are in no way compelled to join a labor union under any code that has fart (h^Vm A e L ^ thcy rea " y object to ia the fact that NIRA gives the employe the right to choose whether or not he wishes to join a labor union, and therefore gives him the right to exercise his constitutional guarantee of free speech and free assemblage a right that was denied him under the old injunction system and the "yellow dog" contract. Reporters seen, to be content to go along under the sobriquet of "leg men" and are not noticeably enthused over tha honor the A. N. P. A. would bestow upon them. The hue and cry about the freedom of the press being in danger of destruction is just a lot of balderdash and "bologna," Very truly yours, CLINT W. HICKOX. Bj LOQAN CLENDRMSO. M. O." BRONCHITIS NOT COMPLICATED HEN an adult has a bronchial cough. It is usually simple infection following an infection of the upper respiratory passages, the nose and throat. A cold in the chest, In fact. The adult does not have nearly as many other conditions which cause bronchial coughs as does the baby, which we described yesterday. In adolescence or young adult life coughs may be caused by tonsils or adenoids that arc chronically infected, or by a. long palate which hangs into the back oÂ£ the throat and tickles the vocal cords. But these things are not so likely ot happen in full maturity. Affections of 'the vocal cords themselves or the voice box (lar- ynxj, may cause a cough which Is Jf. Clendcnlnc ascribed to bronchitis and neglected for that reason. There are such things as little papillomata or warts oh the voca cords. These can easily be removed by a competent throat specialist. Of course, one of the great dangers of neglecting a bronchial cough in an adult ia that it may not be bronchitis at all, but tuberculosis in an early stage and if a cough of this nature hangs on too long, il certainly indicates a careful examination to discover whether tuberculosis is present in the lungs. Another condition which may cause continuous coughing is infection of the nasal sinuses, with the dripping of infected material into the chest. This will be described, however, in more detail tomorrow. Sometimes people cough violently for a long time and finally bring up a little stone or stony material These are called "broncholithes," and are due to the ulceration of a calcified lymph node through the wal of the bronchial tube Into its cavity. The condition is not serious although it may be very alarming, and after the Btone has been disgorged the condition usually promptly clears up. People who cough for a long time after an attack of pneumonia and bring up thick, nummular sputum have, probably, a secondary Infection of the pleura which surrounds the lungs, and the formation of pus in the pleural cavity. This condition is called ai "empyema" and sometimes the pus burrows Its waj through the lung substance and enters a bronchia tube. Finally, it must never be forgotten in adults tha coughs are sometimes merely the symptoms o hysteria, and are due to habit. I would hate to say that mother had ever had this kind of a cough, bu It is possible that father or brother has it, and tha they cough simply to call attention to themselve (subconsciously) or (equally subconsciously) to annoy the rest of the family.

R. H. D.'a father recently went through Cler- moftt and spotted the monument in its new location before noting that it was missing- from the street. "My gosh," he thought, "have they built another monument here t" Then he discovered what had happened. State highway commission and Clermont officials are to he congratulated.

Perhaps you have expended many hours trying to draw a face or an animal like one by the really great artists whose work you admire. What good did all this copying do you?

But repeating the process will not put you ahead art. It is the same in writing. A certain person evolves a style that is characteristic and takes well. You immediately try to write something that will sound like his work. Perhaps you copy the trade name as nearly aa you dare and ease your conscience by writing on different subjects from those already out under that trade name. What Is the result? It is going to cause comment and the one who used the name first will be the one who is considered original in art. Notables Born This Date--Martin Van Btircu, born 1782, eighth president. * * Brig.
