Calmer o£ West Union into the political arena as a candidate for fourth district representative in congress is an encouraging augury in republican affairs. Mr. Palmer is clean, honest, progressive, aggressive and independent- minded. He is the stuff from which real statesmen are made. From the standpoint of ability and availability, he appears to be as worthy a republican banner-carrier as could be selected. Some may hold, of course, that the need of the Umes is somebody who will "hold up the hand of our president" in the administration's program. If that be the sentiment, there probably will be little on which to base a choice between Mr. Palmer and Mr. Biermann for the reason that Mr. Biermann, as a democrat, has opposed the administration on more than one major point, including the agricultural act which has brought such, large direct returns to farmers of this district. It is easily conceivable that Mr. Palmer as a republican would have supported the administration more consistently than has Mr. .Biermann as a democrat. Mr. Biermann has revised his viewpoint on a number of things but he remains unalterably against the erection of tariff walls. He voted with the president last March for the economy act, which made veterans the brunt of what was to be a great governmental retrenchment program. But a few days later he voted against the agricultural act in question. He was willing to follow the president--but far. His opposition to AAA was predicated on the fact that the measure bottoms on protection by tariff. If Mr. Biermann is not a free-trader, he is the next thing to it. Whether the administration is right or wrong with regard to the development of the Mississippi waterway is a question that has only an historical interest now. The project has been decided upon; work on it is progressing at a rapid rate; it is all but an accomplished fact. Condemnation of the plan by Messrs. Biermann acd Willford is 110 more than a modern version of Don Quixote and the windmill. It constitutes an attack on the administration rather than on the problems confronting agricultural Iowa. Many issues may be brought into the campaign but the one on which, it seems to us, there is the clearest- cut difference between Mr. Biermann and the republican viewpoint will be on this question of a continued, and perhaps enlarged, protection for American agriculture. Mr. Palmer is capable of revealing the essential lack of logic in Mr. Biermann's stand on this question and he may be relied upon to do so. While there is no certainty at all that the list of candidates is complete, and there is no intention here to compare Mr. Palmer's availability with that of others who may later join in the chase, we frankly would relish sitting on the sidelines and watching the spirited campaign which would result if King Palmer and Fred Biermann--both keen minds--were paired off against each other next fall. WHY INSIST^ON QUALITY? ·n/rRH, A. pays $2 lor a kitchen utensil. Mrs. B. pays $1.50 for a kitchen utensil with a striking resemblance to the 52 article. Mrs. A. and Mrs. B. compare articles and prices and, if they are unthinking, decide that Mrs. A. paid too much. Did she? If the kitchen utensils are identical in all respects it cannot be denied that she could have bought hers for the same price paid by Mrs. B. Perhaps Mrs. B. bought her kitchen utensil from a distressed merchant who was 'compelled to sell quality merchandise for less than its actual, value. Tf that is not true Mrs. A. probably got the bargain, even though she paid 50 cents more. What Mrs. B. got probably was inferior quality. Her "bargain" is likely to be an extravagant transaction in the long run. If Mrs. B. got inferior quality In the process of saving 50 cents on the original purchase she will Uava to replace the kitchen utensil before Mrs. A. replaces hers. Mrs. B., therefore, will spend 53 while Mrs. A. Is spending ?2. If Mrs. B. saves 50 cents and loses ?1 she has wasted money. How many Mrs. B.'s are wasting money now, when waste Is indefensible, by putting- price above quality? Mrs. B. cannot contend that two purchases of inferior merchandise are better than the purchase of one quality product, from the economic viewpoint. "Sweat shop" wages are not economic assets, therefore American buyers who are putting price above quality ar« not contributing to restoration of normal national buying power. Genuine prosperity cannot be built on Inferior merchandise produced by underpaid arti- 'J'HUEE Pertinent or Impertinent Caught In the act of trying: to snealc under the tent, Des Molnes will find a way to dig up its admittance price to the national P.

DAILY SCRAP BOOK OTHER EDITORS SLIDING BASIS BETTER /CONGRESS made a mistake when it ordered a blan- ^ ket reduction of 15 per cent In pay for federal em- ployca. Its action should have been in the direction of a readjustment. Too many government workers are not adequately paid for the type of work they do, but thousands are overpaid. It has been the practice of congress to glorify unskilled labor by paying high salaries for It. There are countless public jobs paying $200 K month and more which could be performed just as efficiently by men and boys who are satisfied with minimum NRA wages. What many can't understand Is how the German people keen on getting tho kind of leaders they aren't AMERICAN SCHOOLS AT CRISIS Chicago Herald-Examiner: Unless remedial and nationwide action is taken, the present year will find THREE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THIRTY THOUSAND American children being deprived ot education. Proud as this country has been of its ideals of education, and excellent as our schools undoubtedly have been in many states, even normally education has not been a national success. Before the depression set in, theye were in the country at large every year two million two hundred and eighty thousand boys and girls, between the ages of 0 and 15, receiving no school instructions. Depression conditions have continually increased this "normal" number and--unless something is done --an additional million children will be upon the streets and byways before April 1, with perhaps no chance ever after for many of them to obtain school training:. U. S. WANTS NO KING I-iiko Mills Graphic: We have no kings. We have no heriditary uobility. In this country we have nobody to govern except the people. There is nothing more destructive than the notion now abroad in this land on to Washington for everything the people may want! This creation of an attitude of national dependence upon a great federal bureaucracy is one of the most dangerous things that a free people can have What will happen in the future only time will tell, but we do not believe America will permanently operate under the present arrangement. The "new deal" Is yet to come and it might not be especially to the liking of the democratic party. --*»----«·, ENCOURAGING TEIMPERANCE--O, YEAH? Emnions, Minn., Lender: Last week Thursday, George F. Sullivan, United States district attorney, took steps to confiscate 475 cases of whisky-candy, held in a Minneapolis warehouse after being barred from sale in the state. According to the news dispatch, each chocolate coated candy contained a teaspoonful of whisky. This must be one of.the plans had in mind by the hard liquor distillers when they urged the adoption of repeal as a means of promoting temperance. They were all for temperance then--with mental reservations and purpose of evasion. AWAY FROM BIERMANN? Charles City Tress: The Oclwein Register praises the suggestion of King Palmer, of West Union, by the Daily Press, us the republican candidate for congress in the fourth district and says "he would make a splendid man in office," and that if he concludes to become a candidate "he will obtain a large, following throughout the district." The Register supported Congressman Biermann during the last campaign.

Along with this is 3-cent hogs. SEED AT SO A BUSHEL Hampton Chronicle: Of course Wallace's hl-bred seed corn and a campaign for a reduction In corn acreage does not quite harmonize.

WANT AD Winter/Hot MadLsonfcin: Lost, strayed or stolen, an elaborate plan of state government, answering to the name of Brookings. PROUD OF IOWA Gurner Lender: Yes, we live in Iowa, and are proud THEORY OP URIC ACID REJECTED A LONG TIME ago, when Queen Victoria and Grover Cleveland were en their respective thrones, an English physician named Haig conceived the idea that most chronic diseases were due to the accumu- latioii of uric acid irt the blood. Uric acid is a derivative of substances found in meat and other protein foods and, therefore, an obvious method of treatment--that is to say, removing meat from the diet --was immediately linked to the theory of causation. The theory had a great vogue and, in fact, is still widely held. People say to you, "Got a little rheumatism In my fingers. Too much acid. Guess I'll stop eating meat for a while." Fortunately for its success, there was no easy way known at that time to determine the amount of uric acid in the blood. About 1915 Dr. Folin perfected a method of determining: the amount of uric acid in the blood, and many of the statements concerning its role in the causation of disease could then be checker. One thing- that was found was that the amount or: uric acid in the blood remains extremely constant In health and in most conditions of disease. Of all substances, its increase in the blood is probably found most rarely. The only condition in which It is particularly increased Is gout, and this is the one i'orm of arthritis which we can say has something to do I with uric acid. It is true that in advanced kidney disease the uric acid increases slightly in the blood. Uric acid is, oE course, excreted by the kidneys, and it would he natural that if their function were damaged the uric acid would be damaged back into the blood stream. But this docs not mean that the uric acid caused the kidney disease. In fact, the kidneys seem to be able to get rid of uric acid raore easily than any other substance which they ordinarily excrete. Uric acid undoubtedly would be increased in the blood shortly after eating a heavy meal consisting largely of meat, but this is a perfectly natural fluctuation. It does not stay in the blood long- enough to do any harm and, in fact, Is thrown off so rapidly that it is very difficult to catch It at the moment of increase. There is no constant increase in uric acid in the blood in chronic rheumatism or arthritis other than the gouty form. Nor in high blood pressure or hardening of the arteries, or any of the other things that Dr. Haig so glibly supposed were due to uric acid retention in the blood.

EDITOR'S MAIL BAG EXHIBITS FOR THAT MUSEUM ROCKWELL, Feb. 14.--Approximately 50 years ago father, who was expert with a flai!, made two and after cracking myself on the head several times with one of them, I learned to swing it in unison with his flai] in threshing buckwheat. The handle of the flail was cut from our young willow grove, and it is today as tough and pliable as though made from ironwood. I also have in good state of preservation a woodcr shoulder yoke father made more than 60 years ago. It was used for carrying large pails of boiled down maple syrup from the 40 down in Bear Hollow, Al- lanmlcee county. Every few evenings the neighbors were invited In for sugaring off.

ONCE OVERS aanctuarv. tly J. J. M U N D Y -CONCENTRATE--BUT RELAX When it becomes necessary for you to concentrate, do you not make too much effort to do so? If you are making a physical effort, do you not concentrate to tlie point where your muscular movements become stiff and devoid of rhythm? If the effort is to be mental, do you not give more thought to. the fact that you must concentrate than to the things about which you should concentrate. You divide your thought and so the main object of your study comes out a poor second best. There must be a concentrated relaxation in both mental and physical effort--or it might be termed relaxed concentration. You can't force the mind to do its work. Every muscle, every brain function must run easy and smooth. The idea is to keep the mind attentively concentrated so that it will not wander. It is necessary to be very much interested In what you are doing. A happy interest and an openness of mind that will neither pinch the idea nor permit It to be lost through indolent looseness is required. Unhappy attention cramps results.

So many of Galileo's ideas, set forth with self- satisfied assurance, upset existing thought that he got into difficulties with religious authorities. The Inquisition tortured him into a confession of error, caused him to recant his belief world was round. Thereafter (as R condition of his release) he retired to seclusion, denied himself from earnest students who came from all the world to see him, continued his investigations, lost his eyesight, invented the pendulum clock-after he was blind! 1704--St. Louis was established by French fur traders who lost it to the Spanish seven years later.

I remember the motorists who used to talk about making a trip to another state without n tire puncture or blow-out and we used to look at them with the same skepticism that we now turn on the man who talks about getting 25 miles to the gallon of gasoline. When It was claimed that a tire had lasted for five thousand miles, our skepticism turned to absolute open doubting. Today a common endurance is 25,000 miles and heavy duty tires not infrequently wear for 50,000 miles, almost the life of a car. Even considering stream-lining, knee-action brakes, free wheeling, individual ventilation, automatic clutch and all the other Innovations of recent years, I still insist that motoring's greatest advance has been in its shoes. was asked not long ago how cold It would be if It were "twice as cold as zero." I fumbled around for oji answer and finally admitted that I didn't know. Since that time, however, I have information from the U. S. weather bureau which pretty well answers the question. The expression, "twice as cold as zero," has no physical meaning because we have no zero o£ cold, or place from which to count cold. We only count heat. The question is much like--A man has only 5100 to his name; how much would he have if he were twice as poor? There is no answer, because we count In riches, not in poverty. We know what he would have 1C half as rich, but "twice as poor" has no meaning. When we say "twice as cold" we probably refer to a rough estimate of our discomfort, and not to the reading of a. thermometer. --o-wonder," writes a Mason City reader, "while you're digging up some of the early history o £ this county, if some one could inform us how authentic is the story that if there is a building erected In the City park (central) that the plot will revert to the original owners. "This has been mentioned a number of times, particularly when thei-e was talk of erecting a comfort station above ground." O. K. Who knows for sure about this ? can imagine the smile that Jameg E. Blythe assumed not so long ago when he read a letter from his illustrious namesake, Samuel Blythe, political authority for the Saturday Evening- Post. The local man had written him to learn whether they might be of common ancestry, In the body of the letter there was information which indicated that the two had sprung from different family trees. In a concluding paragraph, however, the famous writer made reference to a "well known and influential lowan named James E. Blythe who was active in Hawkeye politics of the eighties and nineties." 'I have a vivid recollection of him," the magazine writer suggested, "ami It occurred to me that perhaps you might be a BOH or u grandson." And the thing, of course, thai brought the smile to Mr. Blythe'K face is tlie fact that he IS that same James E.
