The NRA was the first target for the publisher's fire. In a series of front page editorials, he proceeded to tear the cover off that recovery tie- vice. Then all of a sudden he ceased firing. The nation wonders why. One theory is that he was appeased by a naval commission granted to his son. There'are others. But they're just conjectural. Nobody knows for sure just what called Mr. Hearst off in his attack on the new deal. An interesting outgrowth of the skirmish which never developed into a war was a defense of the NRA by a New York department store, using full page space in Mr. Hearst's own newspapers. Although peace now reigns along the whole front, that department store is claiming a decision in the bout as far as it had gone. Its publicity director is out with an announcement that of the 25,000 letters received ·from persons in all walks of life, only six letters expressed opposition to NRA. "And of these," lie added, "four were unsigned and all obviously from cranks. The huge total oponed our eyes to the deep-seated feeling of -manufacturers, retailers, and consumers. Some even inclosed money orders and checks to help cany on what they believed was a vital campaign in behalf of national recovery movement. "The public reaction was so spontaneous that it deserves the most careful consideration by those who lately have been disposed to snipe at the program. We plan to continue to give our whole-hearted support to NRA, It looks like recovery to us, a view that is buttressed by our increasing sales totals." This statement, made for the financial editor of the New York Times, contained an opinion that prospects for holiday trade never were more excellent and that the store was planning its greatest advertising campaign as a means of cashing in on the bright outlook. What was described as a "steady upward surge in business activity and a sharply improved tone in collections" were features of the report on manufacturing and wholesaling made by the New York Credit'Men's association, Nov. 25. Of companies replying to weekly questionnaires, 34 per cent reported larger sales, 45 per cent unchanged, and 21 per cent indicated slight recession. Collections were reported fail- by 53 per cent, good by 37 per cent, and slow by 10 per cent. CHURCH AND STATE QERMANY'S effort, under the nazis, to bend the Lutheran church to the political purposes and philosophy of the Hitlerites lias resulted in the resignation of all the principal officers of the church. The resignation was in protest against the efforts of the Hitler-appointed bishop to swing the church into line with the uazi ideas--elimination of the Old Testament because it is a history and literature of the Jews, for example, was one of the objectives sought. What effect the insurrection in the state church will have remains to be seen. Recently there has been a more moderate trend in the nazi ranks, in some respects, but this open challenge cannot be avoided. Unquestionably Hitler will appoint officers for the church in sympathy with his theories--but its effect upon the country is uncertain. No open campaign of opposition, however, is to be expected. Dissent from the nazi policies is impossible in the press or on the platform. The outcome must depend upon whether or not the German church population feels that dictation of religious dogmas is a proper function of the government. It is a mediaeval idea long out of fashion in modern lands, but so are many other Hitler notions which seem to be enthusiastically received. AFTER CLARK AGAIN QNE thing can be said in defense of the leg- islativc attempt to investigate the office of E. W. Clark, state insurance commissioner. Usually neither motive nor result is visible when the legislature sets out to "probe." But in the case of this Clark investigation proposal, the motive is as clear as the nose on one's face. Mr. Clark is holding a position wanted by some hungry democrat, more acceptable, per- baps, to certain insurance interests. The legislature is out to establish some high moral principle for a job-seeker's appetite. Other methods have been employed but without success; Mr. Clark has come out of each brush with increased prestige. The legislature's attempt to show dishonesty or inefficiency in a man who is known by his neighbors and by the world to be both honest and able is destined to be as abortive as previous "smear" attempts. One of the live possibilities of the situation is that in their persecution, the' democrat* of Iowa arc making a f u t u r e governor. JAPS SEEK BIGGER NAVY JAPAN, having already announced that she in^ l.'ids to ask for a larger quota of naval strength in the 1936 naval conference, is now moving obliquely toward that objective, it would appear from the Tokio proposal recently to open naval discussions with the United States before the conference is called. The Japanese assert that such advance conversations will facilitate the progress of the conference. More likely they would be designed to place the United States in an awkward and difficult position, for the benefit of the Japanese. Our policy at previous naval conferences has been to work with the British to keep naval armaments down, if we were to concert previous arrangements with the Japanese the British would certainly look askance. President Roosevelt's recent decision to bring the American fleet back into Atlantic waters next summer, after its two year stay in the Pacific, has evidently given the Japanese an erroneous idea of our attitude' toward bet- naval ambitions. It may be taken for granted that any effort of the Japanese to increase their present ratio of 3 to 5 in naval vessels will be fought by this country. If Japan wants to start a naval armament race she will not do so with our consent. DAILY SCRAP BOOK OTHER EDITORS SALAKY GRAB IVECORD DOWN TO DATE W. C. Dowel In Kossuth County Advance: Bnouijh senators and representatives have paid back the salary grab to make a total sum of $21,287.02 plus $2,349.77 interest. There are plenty yet who have not paid, and among them are prominent present legislators, such as Senator Frailey and Representative McFarlane, former lieutenant-governor. Senators Baird, Benson and Bergman, who used to figure largely in legislative doings, have not paid. Both candidates for the republican nomination for lieutenant governor last year, Clark of Linn, and Bennett, are among the delinquents. Lange, who one? or twice ran for governor, still has his 5500, and BO have Shaff, Topping, Ickis and 21 other senators who are content to let it stand of recortj that they keep money which the supreme court has held is not rightfully theirs. It is surprising tof ind former Speaker Johnson among representatives who have not paid; also Judge Lovrein of Spencer, who has announced candidacy for the republican nomination for governor next year. But they have plenty of company. Altogether G7 members of the salar3' grab house are delinquent, and 30 members of the senate. This is 61 per cent pins of the total membership of the salary grab legislature. A handful in each house, however, did not take the money, including Congressman Gilchrist, then a senator. The record doea not speak well for a rigid sense of honesty among legislators. This does not mean in taking the money in the first place--doubtless all of them ware guiltless of taking what was not rightfully theirs"--but In keeping it after the supreme court ruled that it was illegally appropriated. It will be interesting to observe whether Attorney General OConnor, who is pushing collections, v deem it expedient or find it legally possible to hold up the compensation of present legislators who are delinquent salary grab beneficiaries and app'y it on what they owe the state.

It involved an ambulance ride one dark night between an infirmary at Cler- r ont Fcnard and a base hospital at Royat, in France. Austin, a sergeant in the medical crops, was in charge of the infirmary. The practice was to remove the seriously wounded to the base hospital and it was on such a mission that he met up with a young soldier, badly wounded, who had just received a telegram.

BRONCHITIS IN ELDERLY INFECTION 'PLDERLY persons are not so likely to have acute ·L colds in the chest, but they are more likely than anybody to have a chronic cough which is sometimes called "chronic bronchitis," and perhaps more properly called "bronchiectasis." The origin of this condition is not perfectly clear, but in most cases I believe it Is due to a long continued infection in the nose and the nasal sinuses which has been neglected for many years. The infected material from the nose drops constantly, day and night, into the back of the throat, and finally begins to infect the entire bronchial tree. It has been urged that the glottis or -voice box, is" so sensitive to foreign material that it would protec the bronchi from this sort of invasion. But when it is rumcmberec that the assault from these infected droplets goes on day and night, that when t h e person is sleeping 01 ,, , , , Clendcnirc snoring the glottis is less sensitive, and that sudder sucking actions will draw material into the chest it must be admitted that it is possible for such exten- OVER THE TOP!

EDITOR'S MAIL BAG NO SUCH THING AS "LYNCH LAW" MASON CITY, Dec. 4.--After reading your articles regarding the governor of California in upholding lynch law, I venture the opinion that for once you are wrong in your conclusion that the majority of the people arc not with you, in condemning the governor's approval o£ The lynchings. All reasoning law abiding citizens should uphold the law; and for a governor of a great state to back up such criminal acts is unthinkable. In reality, there is no such thing as lynch law, for the lyjichers are engaging in a criminal act, as had as the crime they are condemning, and would be defined as such, at leait in all civilized countries. Every man accused of crime should be entitled to a just and fair trial before deliberating, thinking reasoning men, and our constitution so defines thi? right; and when a governor sitting in high office upholds the criminality of lynching, denying men this right, he is besmirching our constitution and making of it nothing: but a scrap of paper. Further, he is making it appear that the courts arc impotent in dealing with the crime; and do not dispense justice; when In reality we all know that the greatest difficulty in bringing kidnapers and other criminals to justice is to discover their identity and capture them, so that they can be brought to trial before a just court to answer for their crime. Also he is encouraging the spread of this sort o: thing, and it does not require a great stretch of the imagination under these circumstances, to picture this blind, unreasoning force, taking the law into its own hands in lesser crimes, intimidating officers, until all rule. nlJ vested authority, would be as nothing-. It is a black mark upon the record of any state, when lynchings take place, let alone when it is backed up and encouraged by the chief executive of that ptatf. To my mind, you arc wholly right in condemning this act of the governor of California and it would seem that there is little or no reasoning or logic on the other side of the question, but a mind so guided Is I controlled by prejudice. ASA LEROY BRIAR. sion to occur. For many years the condition may remain as a simple inflammation of the bronchial lubes. Finally however, their walls begin to weaken, and with the loss of elasticity which conies with old age, each tube may widen into a little pouch, and we have the condition of bronchiectasis or dilation of the finer bronchial :ubes. Pus accumulates in these pouches, and the condition Is then extremely annoying-, as well as detrimental to health. Absorption occurs and the patient; ost weight, the skin becomes white and clammy, ant .he ends of the fingers enlarge in a curious way and are called "drumstick" lingers. The proper treatment is ly prevention, to clear up the nasal infection early in life, and the greatest esson of the disease is to remind those in middle age .hat such treatment is necessary. Another condition which is often called bronchitis n late middleaged or elderly persons, consists in heart failure with congestion of the lung. I remember once making the mistake of prescribing over thi telephone for a patient who said that Bhe had a coli: n the chest. For two or three weeks I kept prescribing cough medicines for her, which didn't do her an; jood, and finally I came to my senses and demander .hat I be allowed to make an examination. I fount that she had an irregular heart, with heart failure and congestion of the lungs as a result, and it was this congestion, with the exudation of fluid into the ai sacs, which caused the cough which had been callet a cold in the chest.
