HAROLD HOFFMAN had any other idea 1 than helping to clear up the Lindbergh kidnap- ing through his reprieve to Bruno Hauptmann, he certainly fell short of his intentions. His action has brought widespread condemnation. In his own state, for example, republican leaders are giving serious consideration to a proposal which would strip him of any party office. Newspapers everywhere have whanged away at his act with a vengeance, some of them going so far as to demand impeachment for malfeasance in office. Few have been more critical of the delays in the operation of justice than this paper. We have regarded it as one of the most important single factors in the reign of lawlessness in America. And yet in this case, we are disposed to a charitable appraisal of Governor Hoffman's action. So far as Bruno Hauptmann is concerned, we feel that he is guilty and should go to the chair. He had the money; he was spending the money. Never was a more airtight case of circumstantial evidence built up against an accused man. Every item in it pointed to Bruno's guilt The only unanswered question of any moment was: Did Hauptmann have help in the crime? The one best promise of the reprieve is that it will provide an answer to this. Few men have had as many opportunities to prove their innocence as Bruno Richard Hauptmann. Through sympathy that naturally rises for the underdog, he was able to finance an imposing legal staff. He was able to resort to every legal means to stay sentence and to prove his innocence. On the stand, he presented something less than an innocent figure. His testimony, albeit his persecution was merciless and legally finicky, was confusing. He was unable to offer logical explanations of deeply' incriminating facts. Charges that his trial was a legal "circus" won for him, perhaps, an undue amount of sympathy. When one recalls that fully a half of the alleged fireworks of the trial was the intimations and theories that a bewildered defense presented, one cannot point to the prosecution and say that it convicted Hauptmann through a great wave of public indignation. For the defense, more than any one factor, was responsible for the wild "circus" that drew so much condemnation. The one and only reason for delaying the Hauptmann execution lies in the possibility that in this way light may be thrown on the identity of confederates in the era's most revolting crime. On this basis, and this alone, we're willing to resolve our doubts in favor of the New Jersey governor. So far as consideration for Bruno Hauptmann is concerned, we should say that he has already had far too much. Not one single item of information was contained in the Lehan Ryan report to the governor that was not known the day after Mike Mercuric was arrested last fall. ^ Whether you like young Teddy or not, you'll have to give him credit for not talking partisan politics at ic memorial being dedicated to his illustrious father. Check and you'll find that the man who talks loudest about "dividing the wealth" hasn't anything to divide. ·Another fellow we're gunning for is the bird who's seen insisting that winters ain't as cold as they used to be. It's a tribute to American fairplay that wages we risen rather than shrunk since the death of NRA. Just how big must business be before it becomes 'big business?" Simile: Lengthy as the~new king's full name. SWATTING COMMUNISM M ETHODIST church leaders are to be commended on their endeavor to "drive the communists from the temple." The matter came to a head a week or so ago when a group bearing the Methodist label gathered in Evanston and voted 53. to 10 to affiliate with the so-called "red front." Bishop Ernest Lynn Waldorf has .sounded the church's attitude in these words: "Methodism must be purged of its red minority. A general house cleaning is in order and can be counted on at the church's quadrennial conference at Columbus, Ohio, in May." A group of pastors of like mind is seeking to find where the money came from for the financing of the Evanston meeting. One of the ministers, the Rev. Harold K. Taylor of Evanston's Hemenway M. E. church, asked this question: "Who is financing this unofficial group that uses the name Methodist in an attempt to tie the church up to the red-dominated American League Against War and Fascism? They have a general fund and seem to be plentifully supplied with money to carry on their subversive -activities. I want to know where that money comes from." The Rev. George. Fowler, pastor of the First Methodist qhurch of Oak Park, said: "Ministers cannot afford to pay their own expenses from distant states to attend radical meetings. Who paid the bills for the Evanston meeting that indorsed 'the red front?'" Laymen generally will give enthusiastic approval to this movement on the part of loyal church leaders to take the Russian influence out of their religion, the influence of a political philosophy which has sought through wholesale murder and destruction, to banish Christianity from their land. The use of the name and prestige' of the largest single branch of Protestantism in America is indeed a cruel hoax. I noK OUT ^BELOW J The PROS and CONS AT LEAST DEBATABLE Elkader Register: The question of what is termed "compulsory" military training in colleges bobs up quite frequently with arguments both for and against. Those who oppose it generally give the impression that such training is actually "compulsory" in the large majority of colleges and universities and that it is calculated to create a favorable attitude toward war in the minds of the students. Both of these impressions are wrong. Comparatively few colleges or universities require their students to take military training. In Iowa we know of only two. The State university at Iowa City and the Iowa State college at Ames. Both are supported by taxation and have had government grants conditioned on military training courses. No boy is "compelled" to attend either of these institutions. These military training courses do much more to benefit students than many courses they take. We have seen round-shouldered, awkward young CUDS straightened up and taught to handle themselves in company with others. Military setting-up exercises and drill give splendid physical training. This editor had nearly two years of college military training and benefited by it, but there was no glorification of war to it. WHY A PENSION AT ALL? Bancroft Register: Most Iowa weeklies take it for granted that old age pensions are necessary; all they do is to abuse the state board for not paying out money it hasn't got: But why a pension policy at all? That's the real question. Why do we have it now any more than we had to have it in the century and a half before the Roosevelt spending era? Why do we howl about taxes and yet fall for all the wild schemes of the day? FARMERS ARE AROUSED Rockford Register: The prediction is here registered that if the experience of the farmers of the country for the past three years hasn't taught them anything else, it has aroused in them a determination to take care of themselves, and by the most effective methods that may lie in their power. They should be and are done with being an economic football or doormat for the rest of their fellow citizens. WHEN PREACHERS PREACH POLITICS Chicago Tribune: The basic error of clerical politics is that, it repudiates the function of the church, the religious office which is to enlighten and purify the conscience and spirit of men. The preacher-politician wants to use the authority of his religious office to advance his own political and economic views, a perversion of his authority and his function, in its true character the highest among men. ANOTHER SUCKER, IT SEEMS Waukon Republican and Standard: We observe that Uruguay has broken off diplomatic relations with Russia. What? We thought the United States was the only country that loved to lend money where it was known it would never be repaid. NOTE TO PARTY LEADERS Ringsted Dispatch: If they want publicity let them use the advertising columns. And we will write our own political editorials without any help from Jouett Shouse, Henry Fletcher or Jim Farley. TOO DUMB TO UNDERSTAND Northwood Anchor: Whoever the persons are who hanged the six U. S. supreme court judges in effigy at Ames, to quote a famous misquotation, they are "simply too damn dumb to understand." REPUBLICANS DIDN'T DO IT Osage Press: It's a little curious how people generally blame the republicans for the death of the triple A. It's an unjust accusation, of course. The supreme court is non-partisan. BIERMANN LETTERS LIKED Thornton Enterprise: We have had more favorable comment on Mr. Biermann's letters of his European trip than on any series of articles we have ever published. AND CALL IT RELIEF Clarion Monitor: Another odd thing about the whole business is how they can wallop the taxpayers for four billion dollars at a whack and call it relief. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG POLITICAL GHOST-WALKING | jN THE Louisiana campaign and election which brought victory to the Huey Long side, there was an almost uncanny reminder of the play, "The Return of Peter Grimm," recently seen at a Mason City theater. Peter Grimm died but his spirit and voice came back to unsnarl the tangled skein caused by his own stubborn insistence upon controlling the lives of those about him during his time on this earth. Huey Long is dead but in this campaign, his voice and views were heard over radio and from sound trucks. A record taken of a speech made by Huey Long shortly before his assassination last fall was used. There is, of course, this essential difference between the two stories. Peter Grimm's ghost sought to undo the wrongs he had done; Huey Long's sought to perpetuate his life philosophy, right or wrong. · The ghost of Banquo walked effectively at the', banquet of Macbeth. Perhaps it was this famous j Incident which gave inspiration to the authors of both ! of the contemporary ghost-walking manifestations i here discussed, ' A DEFENSE OF OUR SUPREME COURT PLYMOUTH, Jan.. 22.--The decision handed down by our supreme court relating to the AAA has been a subject of much discussion and heated argument. I consider that all U. S. citizens should show due respect for our highest tribunal and be loyal to our constitution.

DIET and HEALTH By LOGAN CLEK'DKNING, M- D. MIM^M^M^^ OBSERVING USE SOME HOKSESENSE VLONG WITH HOKSEPOWEB to the National Safe- council for these cleverly thoughts on the subject of safety: .Safety Is a social duty. Good brakes prevent bad breaks. Death lurks just around the corner for many an over-confident driver. Have your car checked, a part like a broken steering knuckle be- inff sufficient to hurl you into eternity. Better wait a minute at the crossing than forever in the cemetery. Trying to save seconds loses many lives. Safety often depends on your own wheel, not on the other fellow's. Children should be seen in the street--not hurt. Drive right and pedestrians will be left, It's better to be safety-conscious than unconscious. A fixed tag in a traffic court may ultimately be converted into a coroner's certificate. Driving is a full-time job in all kinds of weather. Death says: "I ride beside every driver who relaxes in alertness." Increasing t h e horse power doesn't increase the horse sense. A gallon of gas ana a pint of gin; all they found was a mess of tin. TOO MUCH STRESS ON SEX IN CHILD STUDY? pass on to child study Dr. Clendenins BODY USES FOOD FOR FUEL W E HAVE said that the largest part of our food intake is used, not for replacing the broken-down tissues of the body, but for energy. A muscle, in contracting, does not destroy any preceptible part of its substance. (In -- fact as we know from experience, muscles increase in 'size from use. I But it does use up fuel. Like any other machine, it depends upon the burning, or oxidation, of fuel to work This fuel may come from one or all of several elements in the food. Most of it comes from the burn- in'' of sugars and starches, and for that reason these substances must form the largest part of any diet- twice all the rest by weight. Fats are also used for energy, but not so readily as starches and sugars (carbohydrates). Protein is also used as a fuel, but probably only after it has teen converted into carbohydrate. Host of us eat two or three times as much protein as the body needs, and this excess is utilized partly for energy. There is hardly anything in all medical science that has. been so completely worked out mathematically as this question of energy utilization of foods. The whole vocabulary of calories is built around this science. The commonest form of energy in the world is heat, and heat, in this sense, depends upon the union of oxygen with some other substance. This process is called "oxidation," which is no different than the common word "burning." Almost all the energy in the body comes from oxidation. We do produce _a little electric energy in the nerve pathways, but it is infinitesimal compared to the amount of heat energy that we use. In order to be scientific about anything we have to have a method of measurement. The method of measuring heat is, of course, by the thermometer, and using that we get a neat unit, which is called "calorie." A calorie is simply a certain amount of heat. It is the amount that is necessary to raise I kilogram of water 1 degree Centigrade (or 1 pound of water 8 degrees Fahrenheit). Put in understandable terms, 1 calorie is used by the body when you rise from a sitting position in front of a door, turn the key in the door, and sit down. If you walk an hour on a level road at the rate of about 3 miles an hour, you use 160 more calories than you would if you sat still. A man 150 pounds, walking up a flight of stairs 10 feet high, spends about 4 calories. Ironing and dishwashing require about 25 calories more than sitting still. Scrubbing floors requires 50 additional calories. Thirty calories an hour more are used by a typist writing at the rate of 50 words a minute. A single 16-candle lamp gives off about 45 calories an hour, depends upon' the weight and the amount of activity. Obviously, the number of calories anybody uses depends upon the weight and the amount of activity. In general, we can say that an adult uses about 12 calories per pound in 24 hours at rest, about 20 at moderate work, and about 25 at hard work. Children require somewhat more. This energy is supplied, as has been said, by the three food elements--carbohydrate, fats and proteins. Fats produce about 9 calories per gram, proteins and carbohydrates about 4. For a man of average weight and activity, therefore, an average diet will contain about 100 grams each of fat and protein. EARLIER DAYS FROM GLOBE-GAZETTE FILES Thirty Years Ago-Dr. J. Everest Catheli, pastor of an Episcopal church at Des Moines, last night delivered the commencement address to the graduating class of the high school at the Congregational church. There were empty seats and it is more than likely that the exercises attendant of graduation are losing favor with the tax-payers. Maybe the good old-fashioned method of allowing each member of the class to take part in the program would stimulate pride in such a function. Elmer O'Leary is president of the class wh : ch was graduated. Supt. W. A. Brandenburg presented e diplomas. CHICAGO--Marshall Field's last will and testa- ament shows that the Chicago merchant left a fortune valued at more than $100,000,000. Mr. and Mrs. John Burstusek of Plymouth were in the city yesterday visiting friends. The ice harvest at the Decker plant was finished last night About 6,000 tons were harvested. Dr. Saunders of Manly was in the city on business today. Twenty Years Ago-LONDON--Remnants of Montenegro's troops, driven from their own land, are falling back through Albania, fighting as they retreat The Montenegro army as a unit has apparently ceased to exist and guerrilla warfare is prevalent C. L. Griffin went to St. Paul on business yesterday. B. J. Smith of Woden is visiting in the city today. Miss Anna Dvarsay left yesterday for a visit with friends at Cedar Rapids. Dr. McQuillan of Iowa City is a guest at the home of Judge and Mrs. W. R. Hayes today. Mrs. A. R. Sax left yesterday for Ottumwa where she will visit relatives for a week. Captain J. C. Buchanan left today for Des Moines on a business trip. T. A. Kingland of Lake Mills transacted business in the city yesterday. Ten Years Ago-- groups in North Iowa, with, comment and purely for information it contains, this news story which recently appeared in an exchange newspaper, under New York dateline: "Child study groups pay too much attention to sex and not enough to teaching simple virtues, Dr. Bernard Sachs of the Academy of Medicine today told delegations to the regional conference on social hygiene in the Hotel Pennsylvania. Dr. Sachs is chairman of the academy's subcommittee on domestic relations courts. In child study groups,' Dr. Sacha said, 'altogether too much attention has been paid and is being paid to the question of sex--to the leglect of other far more important factors. Much has been said about this over-sexed age of ours--oversexed chiefly in the amount of talk about it. ' 'Many groups, instead of spending hours on sex education, could spend the time more profitably rt they would consider how to develop in children absolute honesty, truthfulness, respect for authority, patriotism and lovs for one's neigh- BIG STORIES FROM LITTLE ITEMS GROW--HERE'S PROOF was interested in checking back over the accounts of the illness and death of King George V of England to note bow it grew from a very little story to a very big one. The evening papers of Friday carred an item not more than an inch in length, stating simply that the king was confined to his rooms with a slight cold. The morning papers of Saturday evidenced somewhat more alarm with stories of 8 to 10 inches long. Saturday's evening papers carried stories of a column or more when it became known that the attack of bronchial catarrh was affecting the monarch's heart. The story kept growing until on Tuesday, following the king's death, the Globe-Gazette used 10 full columns, or more than a whole page of stories and pictures describing events relating to what was first just a brief tucked away in a corner. --o-KENTUCKY CHAPEL HAS ROOM FOR ONLY THREE before me a copy of ^ che "Kentucky Progress Magazine" which seems to throw a little doubt on the claim often made for that chapel over at Festina of "smallest in the world." This Kentucky publication, given over to extolling the scenic wonders of that state, nresonts a picture of the Monte Casino church at Covington and applies the "smallest in world" ntirase to it. The Kentucky church accommodates 3 persons, including the priest, while the little chapel near Calmar, 12 bv 16 feet, has 4 pews, each seating 2. Brice Brown, 409 Polk avenue southwest, has my thanks for this interesting item. It was he who submitted the Kentucky magazine. --o-LET'S SEE THE PARENTS OK THESE BABY SMOKERS am fed up on pictures of babies smoking cigars. The one before me--of Patsy Grimmett, 2V~ year old daughter ot a Houston oil man--leaves me with just one emotion. I'd like to see a picture of the parents who permit such smacking providing the setting were right. And to be right it would have to be a violent ward in an asylum for the insane.

MUNDY D AVOID NARROW PREJUDICE O YOU belong to the small calibered class that objects to individuals because of their nationality or their religion? Do you allow this prejudice to so control you that when the names of certain persons are brought up for membership in some of the organizations to which you belong, you voice strong objections? Often it would be impossible for you to present a valid reason for your objections. You are unfair to let a matter of religion or nationality come before the honor and credit that any person may merit. In all nationalities there are as high minded types as you represent In all religions you may find higher types than you show by your life. Religion and nationality, in the cause of justice, should never be used in favor of or against a people or an individual. There are as many renegades and persons of shady connections in the nationality and religion you represent as in any other in the world. Class prejudice is bnd enough but national or religious prejudice are worse. To understand the background and teachings of nation or religion is to respect the individual who honestly lives according to his lights. Lieut.
