National prohibition is off the books. A post mortem would reveal numerous causes contributing to the death. The fundamental one, however, was not the bootlegger, the rum runner or the liquor FULL VALUE RECEIVED QNE fundamental difficulty connected with ^ the legislative attempt to discount the state highway commission is that the average lowan stands firmly convinced that no other dollar spent by him, save possibly his school tax dollar, has brought larger returns than that invested in road-building. The charge that the building of a large mileage of concrete roads is based on undue influence by the cement interests is no more suggested than a suspicion that the Use of other surface materials is prompted by undue influence from other directions. Iowa is committed to a permanent surface for its primary road system. Considerations of economy and efficiency have brought this about. Those served by primary roads have come to expect concrete and a resort to anything less satisfactory or durable wouldn't "sit well" with motorists. Secondary roads are another matter, of course Lower cost and less lasting surface binding material is undoubtedly sufficient where the use is limited. Our preference, however, is going to be to string along with Fred White, chief engineer of the state highway commission, when it's a case of his opinion being in conflict with a group of self-appointed highway authorities. There are indications that the Long, Long barons but the great number of persons, regarded as law-abiding in other ways, who were willing to deal with those who made trafficking in liquor a profession. Prohibition failed because it couldn't obtain the popular sanction which is essential for any effective law. Eepeal of the eighteenth amendment this week found the nation in a state of utter confusion. Neither federal government nor the states had made any preparations for what was to happen. Their anxiety was confined to getting prohibition out of the constitution. Their glib assumption was that anything decided upon will be better than prohibition, that conditions couldn't possibly have been worse than the eighteenth amendment. The jerking of the bung found the 48 states with 48 different ideas on the subject of liquor control and the federal government with no idea at all. There's a welter of conflicting opinions. Some say no saloon; others frankly want the old saloon back. Some say eliminate private profit by state dispensing; the Iowa Crusaders want private manufacture and sale. Some want low prices and little government revenue; others want abundant revenue through high prices. Some want local option; others hold that the person with a thirst should be permitted to quench it irrespective of neighborhood sentiment. And this list Â»ould be continued indefinitely. We still believe that if the choice between prohibition and a specific alternative had been offered, the result would not have been trail in Louisiana is just about at its end. OTHER EDITORS DAILY SCRAP BOOK J^ABUNEK'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY Humboldt Republican: The late Ring Lardner wrote his own autobiography. Here it is: Hardly a man is now alive Who cares that in March, 18S5, I was born in the city of Niles, Michigan, which is 94 miles From Chicago, a city oÂ£ Illinois. Sixteen years later, still only a boy, 1 was graduated from the Nilcs high school With a general knowledge of rotation pool. After my schooling I thought it best To give my body and soul a rest. In 1905 this came to an end, When I went to work on The Times in Souse Bend. Thence to Chi, where I labored first On the Inter-Ocean, and then for Hearst. Then for the Tribune and then to St. Lews, Where I was editor of Sporting News, And thence to Boston, where later a can Was tied to rne by the manager man. In 1!U9 was the year When in Chicago J finished My daily newspaper career. In those 14 years--just a horse's age My stuff was all on the sporting page. In the last five years (since it became illegal to drink) I have been connected with the Bell Syndicate, Inc. I have four children, as well as one missus, None of whom can write a poem as good as this is Just about the .only indisputable fact in the whole situation is that we are launched on a program which seeks to cure a sickness based on too much liquor by giving the patient more,' We're going to make liquor cheaper and easier to get, generally speaking, on the assumption that not liquor itself but its illicit sale is the fundamental evil. Not many seriously doubt any more that the national consumption of intoxicants is certain to be increased. That used to be a wet argument but it was stricken out of the official handbook several years ago. From this point on, the responsibility is squarely upon the anti-prohibitionists to solve the problem of liquor control. Their sniping days are over. Whatever the course, this newspaper sincerely hopes that it will constitute progress in the age-old endeavor to solve a seemingly insoluble problem. It isn't uncommon on the field of battle to drop back in temporary retreat before moving forward in a broad advance. Perhaps what appears to drys now as retrogression may hasten the advent of a curb on liquor which can come''only through the medium of popular sanction--observance by the overwhelming majority and rigid enforcement upon the inconsequential minority. In the meantime, a new, interesting and important chapter in the ancient and extended history of Bacchus is at its beginning. TOLERATING DICTATORS QNE by one since the World war the democratic peoples of the world have been surrendering- to the authority of dictatorships in one form or another. Russia has a dictatorship by the proletariat, Spain a dictatorship by a committee, Italy, Turkey, Germany, Austria and others dictatorships with individuals doing the dictating. For this sudden about-face after progressing so many centuries in the direction of self- government the world has been seeking an explanation. Those nations which have not adopted the new political fad accept it as a sign of retrogression and fear it will retard by several generations man's progress toward a true democracy. There is no use fooling oneself into believing that these dictatorships have been forced upon the people and maintain themselves by force of arms. In each instance these dictatorships enjoy the backing of majority groups. But why have the people turned from self- government and surrendered their liberty? Isn't it because of intellectual laziness and lack of confidence in their ability to govern themselves? Put to their first real test by world conflict and economic chaos a few of the democratic peoples quit without a fight. Russia, Spain and Turkey are not in this group, never having enjoyed self-government, but Italy, Germany and Austria are passing the buck. In sharp contrast with the European state of mind is that of the American penp'e who, judging from recent indications, have had their fill of political dictatorship and intend to govern themselves from now on. IT WH.I BE DIFFERENT NOW Nortliwood Anchor: Lee Tracy, talking picture actor discharged by his company for taking a too active part in a Mexican celebration, explains: "I was just helping them celebrate. I'd been on a cabaret party and had some drinks, and like nny drunk, I began yelling. Some yelled back and I shouted: 'Why don't you go to h ?' The next day I went to jail, paid a small fine, apologized and that's all there was to it." Just wait until we get legal liquor in America and you won't hear of any such carryings on. Legal liquor is going- to promote temperance and make gentlemen and ladies of the drinkers, you know. AN OLD ADAGE BORNE OUT Osage Press: Pete Hansen calls our attention to the fact that the first wheat bonus check went into Monona county and the first corn-loan check into Pocahontas county, two localities that got in the headlines for farm disturbances. The wheel that squeaks the loudest is tho wheel that gets the grease. Â«Â» Â«Â· AL SMITH LOSING GROUND Davenport Demucrnt: Alfred E. Smith, apparently, is determined to continueh is bombardment of President Roosevelt's administration, and that despite the fact that since his first attack, he has lost millions of former admirers and faithful followers. IT'S NOT A FAKTISAN AFFAIR Hampton Chronicle: Leading and loyal democrats are giving the NRA a worse tongue lashing daily than some of the republican?. The democrat;! of the farming communities cannot be fooled by those Tammany- ites of the east. WANT TO CASH IN ON RECOVERY Fenton Reporter: Advertisers who expect business to pick up might try a little advertising program of their own and thus be in shape to take advantage of the buying mood when it hits the public. THE DISTINCTION THAT WAS MELLON'S Forest City Summit: Anyway, Woodin will not go down In history as the "best secretary of the treasury since Hamilton" and that's something he should be grateful for. BETTER LAY OFF HENRY Swca City Hernld: If the administration Is smart it will leave Henry Ford alone. It is but a short step from government persecution to Ford martrydom. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG TOO MUCH ADVICE GENEVA, Dec. 7.--In reading the headlines saw the article stating- the farmers and bankers shouted the farm holiday speakers down at DCS Moines. Now what I want to know is, "Why are the bank ers and newspapers so anxious to put this corn-hoK allotment plan across on the farmers?" It seems t me they were just as sure when the bank waivers wer. signed that that was the only thing for the people's good. Well all the people that I have talked with, sine that was put over, are of a different opinion now And what I can find nut about the corn-hog allotment plan I feel we will be in the same fix if this goes across, only worse. It always appear-! that the bankers and newspapers know just how a farmer should run his business. He is-n't supposed to know anything about it himself This credit business has gone the limit and the sooner we all cut it out and stand on our own feet we will begin to get somewhere. If we are broke, let's quit and not hang ourselves along with everything else. Respectfully yours. MRS. ANGEL1NE O'BRIEN. IM P H I L I P P I N E S MADE.

Which is perfectly pro- er provided you are sure that the case is one of jronchitis. The underlying principles of the treatment of bronchitis, however, are fairly simple, and should be observed no matter what particular remedies are used. The first tiling to be remembered la that it is a self-limited disease, the acute stage oÂ£ which should be over in two or three days, and the entire course of which should, not run longer than two weeks. ^.During " the first stage, the ' ' j*reatest"discbmf6'rt conies' froiii infection itself and absorption of toxic materials, with the associated symptoms of alight fever, chilly sensations, lack of appetite, sense TI ^-,,,,,,!,,.,..,,, of constriction in the chest, heatl- Ir. Clcndeninc achc ^ costlveness . The best treatment for these is rest in bed and methods which will bring" about elimination and relaxation. This, therefore, is the stage iu which hot mustard foot baths, sweats induced by aspirin and a hot bath, hot water bag in bed, are most effective. Elimination by the use of a cathartic such as castor oil or Epsom salts also is in order. The best way to treat the lack of appetite is to give it time. Food Is unnecessary and should not be forced at this time, except, perhaps, hot lemonade and rock and rye. During the second stage, the secretions loosen up and cough and expectoration are troublesome. The patient, on the whole, feels better, but may be considerably annoyed by tenacious sputum and excessive secretion. The old standard remedy for this stage is ammonium chloride dissolved in some syrup such as syrup of wild cherry, syrup of tolu, or syrup of white pine The syrups themselves are soothing to the throat am prevent the irritating, continuous cough which cornea from habit and irritation of the vocal cords. A cough is a protective symptom, but to be so it should bring up some secretion from the chest. When It becomes purely habit it should be controlled. Another method of treating this stage is by the vise of inhalations. These can be either menthol and camphor or compound tincture of benzoin, or many other aromatic substances. The technique of inhalations is important, because most of them when fixed with a kettle, paper cone etc., are likely to be awkward and to Irritate the skin of the nose and lips. The best method Is to get a large rubber tube and an ordinary metal pitcher. Pu steaming hot water in the pitcher, throw the aromatit medicine on top of this, cover the top of the pitcher with a towel, and stick the rubber tube Into th mouth of the pitcher. The tube should, of course, not reach the surface of the water. Then put your mouth over the exposed end of the tube and breathe the fumes directly into the chest. This prevents the irritation of the skin referred to above. EARLIER DAYS Being n Dally Compilation of InlereBlIni Ifeim from tho "Ten, Twenty nod Tlilrly Vcnrn Afio" llles of tho Globe-Gazelle.

Scott of Los Angeles has arrived here and is a guest for a few days at the Frank Scott home, 1311 Delaware avenue southeast. Chris Thrnme, 1708 Carolina avenue northeast, has left for San Diego, Cal., by way of Kansas City, to spend the winter. E. F. Miller of DCS Moines, member of the Miller hotel company, is in the city today on business. am in receipt of an unsigned communication from somebody which contains a etense of the mt\n who recently hot one dog and beat another so icverely that it died, a short time ftervvards. The act was committed n the presence of two youngsters, wners of the dogs. The claim is set up In the letter hat the killer is a sheep owner, hat 15 of his flock have been killed iy dogs thla year and that the youngsters were hunting on his remises. "I am a lover at dogs myself and have a dog," says the writer. "I hink it is a good lesgon for the oys and (I'm quoting verbatim) his man that had these dogs should have told his boys not to take these dogs where there are sheep as you inow a police dog is like a wolf, and it is there delight to kill. And so I think this man that they are so sure is in the wrong is in the wright." I stated that the letter was unsigned. Ordinarily it would receive no attention in this department. It's jrcsented here only as a matter of jiving the other side of the story. To me, I might add, it appears to be a pathetically weak explanation for the bruitality involved in the killings--brutality to the children as well as to the dogs. While J have the fullest aympa- .hy with anyone who is losing sheep to dogs, I can't believe that he is carte blanche authority to Â£0 out with a gun and club to kil' every dog in sight. Â·--o-- submit that there are laws other than those made h man which should govern driving at this time of the year Their requirements are far more rigid than anything on the statute books, and the penalty for vlolat ing them is often death--swift am sure death. From this penalty then is no appeal. I speak of the wea ther laws. When rain or snow is in the ai and when roads are covered with ice or frost, these conditions simply shout "Slow Down.'" There is- us ually no policeman on hand to mak you obey, but instead there's a ditch, or a tree or a telegraph pol which will not only slow you down In a hurry but also pronounce im mediate sentence upon you for vlo lation of the weather laws. Think it over, Mr. Motorist. Def tho weather laws and you are at th mercy of the elements. ONCE OVERS ,r. J. stUNin ARE YOU SYMPATHETIC? You seek sympathy but you seldom extend it. Your troubles seem hard to bear, hut the difficulties of others are of small consequence to you. You ridicule others when they speak of the intensity of their suffering and are often heard to say that you endure as much without complaint. How do you know that what you say is true? Why should you set yourself up as a Judge of the severity of pain that another person is said to be suffering? With the same ailment as your neighbor, you may not suffer as much. Some folk have very fine and sensitive nerves and do suffer more than those who are built in a less sensitive manner. If you do not reach the point of wretchedness on account of disease that another reaches with the same malady, you are fortunate. Physical makeup determines the degree of distress, no doubt. But it is heartless for you to say that you suffer as much without grumbling about it, because no two people can suffer to the same degree anyway. You need more tolerance, more sympathy for the afflicted. Aren't you too heartless in your attitude toward those in pain?

Â·Hiv have been following tha Â»P tiff between Ethel Barry^^^ more and an audience in hiladelphia she recently addressed. The burden of her remarks was that ler hearers were a collection of ig- loramuses and boobs. The audience, inderstandably, didn't appreciate such an estimate. Eva Le Gallleune, another actress, figured in tho in- ildcnt but only in a minor way. And ihe has apologized. What I can't understand is why \fisa Barrymore feels she has a varrant to criticize any audience. Except for the fact that she hap- )cna to bear the name of Barry- nore and be descended from the famous John Drew, she wouldn't even be extra on a movie lot. An over-inflated ego is one of her principal shortcomings but there aro others. Time after time, she has launched some ambitious production, always with a flourish of trumpets. Her performance invariably turns out to 30 something less than mediocre and :he critics have dared to tell tha truth. I venture the venerable Ethel wasn't improved her standing with :he theater public anywhero by her caustic attack on ono audience which didn't appreciate her. It might bo well for her to leave the stage to her two talented brothers and seek peace and quiet in a homo for aged, or aging, women. --o-have a. note of comfort for those who believe the country has gone berserk because Mao West and her own peculiar approach to drama have won such wide acclaim. Miss West's performances have been described as "sextravaganzas" and they have been packing tho houses everywhere. Here's the antidote: "Littlo Women," Louisa M. Alcott's simple story oÂ£ childhood and young womanhood, is also proving: a huge success at the movie box office. It threatens to outdo any Mao West fcatvire. I submit that In Hie face of tho evidence, the American theater-going public can't be appraised am more than half-bad. think of all the expressions of Thanksgiving, one from Will Rogers was by long odd's the funniest. "I'm thankful," lie said, "because the spinach crop is reported to be a failure." Again I'm impressed that Will Is at Ms best when he's clowning rather than, trying to be profound.
