In the meantime, our conviction grows that the director of the NRA would accomplish far more by reasoning;, after the manner of the president himself, than with a formula which combines alley language bluster with a sock--or a ring--in the nose.

DAILY SCRAP BOOK Copyright, IDo-l. by Centra! Prc, WASHINGTON NATIONALISM W ASHINGTON was referred to as "Father o£ His Country" in the German almanac printed at Lancaster, Pa., in the latter part o£ 1779. It was, perhaps, the first ascription o£ that title to him. Its first use in English seems to have been made by the Pennsylvania "Packet," in Philadelphia, 10 years later and after Washington was elected president. In America the term was familiar, having applied to George II, George III and Governor Winthrop. Being so familiar, it may seem slrange that it was not applied to Washington until the revolution was nearly four and a half years old--and then in German. Perhaps it was because the word "country" had taken on a new and deeper meaning with the struggle for independence. If it was then becoming synonymous with "nation," it might have been viewed with suspicion. The use of "United States of America" in the Declaration of Independence did not signify what it does today. In that document it is twice followed and qualified by "Free and Independent States." Nationalism had a slow growth. But Washington was a nationalist, first and last. His spirit of devotion to the common cause gave him patience and courage to face the quarrels and jealousies constantly arising between the "Free and Independent States." New York had to be restrained from attaching- what is now Vermont. Connecticut and Pennsylvania wrangled over settlements in the latter state. Some of the militia refused to serve outside of their owa districts. Ana so it went. These troubles were naturally communicated to the continental congress, whose members were chiefly devoted tc the efforts of their respective states. Congress as a whole was jealous of the army and of Washington himself. Its treatment of the troops was shabby, possibly because of the fear of a standing army in the country. Striving to overcome this fear, Washington wrote from Valley Forge a striking eulogy of his ragged and suffering forces. His message opens with this moving plea: "We should all be considered, congress and army, as one people, embarked in one cause, in ji o;ie interest acting on tho same principle and to ^ \ - the same end." y In the latter part of the same year, 1778, Wash- P ington revealed to Benjamin Harrison, speaker of the l Virginia house of delegates, his conviction that " * * * the states, separately, are too much engaged in their local concerns and have too many o£ their ablest men withdrawn from the general council for the good of tlu 1 common weal." Such were the trials to which Washington's spirit of nationalism was subjected. But posterity is gaining a steadily increasing- appreciation of that cost and of the heavj share which Washington contributed to its payment. His unfailing spirit o£ nationalism gave him unquestioned right to that title applied to him at Lancaster in 1779. FOR A HIGHWAY PATROL /·pWO highway patrol bills are before the Iowa legislature. While our disposition has been to be against anything that would extend the duration of the special session, it would be gratifying indeed to find the senators and representatives agreeing, between rounds in the main fight, on the one most effective system for promoting the cause of safety on Iowa's unsurpassed highways. There is something of travesty involved in spending scores of millions on a network of roads and then permitting" those roads to become a human slaughter house through lack of curb on the reckless driver. It is one of those things which seem to put the stamp of inconsistency and inefficiency on public business as compared with private business. The senate bill provides for a slight draft upon automobile license fees. It contemplates no additional tax whatever. Comparison with results obtained In other states provides basis for the expectation that a patrol of a halt' hundred men, trained for their job, could prevent death or injury for at least 4,000 persons in the year ahead, saving many times its cost in property damage alone. Nothing Is needed quite so much at this time to complete Iowa's system of highways as an agency designed, without added burden upon the motoring public, to reduce the accident toll.

OTHER EDITORS "TUNE OUT AGAIN NEXT MONDAY--" Cedar Rapids Gazette: Inasmuch as the federal radio' commission has intimated that radio stationg broadcasting advertisements o£ hard liquor may have difficulty getting their licenses renewed, broadcasters are more than straining their ingenuity to.get arouiic the physical fact that some of the waves from their stations flutter across states in which liquor advertising is prohibited. One New York station actually is telling its listeners-in to tune it out. Before going on the air with a trio that croons for a gin distiller the announcer says: "Those listening in from dry stales may now tune out thia station, for the next program Is not intended to offer alcoholic beverages for sale or delivery m any state or community wherein the advertising, sale, or use thereof is unlawful." That strikes us as being the height of something or other. It seems hardly fair for a radio station to drive a listener to drink and then cut him off without any information on where to get it and what is the best stuff to get. Moreover, it seems a rank imposition on radio owners to ask them to defend themselves against liquor advertising. Already the announcers would have us all weak with fatigue if we carried njt al their commands. Most of us have learned to ignore the requests that we ( I I "try some of this today," (2) "call your local druggist.right now," (3) 'don't delay a minute," (-1) "send in the lids of three packages," (51 "write :it once for a handsome photograph of Gus and Maggie, suitable for framing," (6) "imagine you are floating down the beautiful Nile," and the like. his address.

II. WASHINGTON BIRTH SCENE NOT MODERN E XACTLY what happened at the birth of George Washington has never been very completely described. But we may imagine a good deal of the scene, and contrast it with \vhat would happen in the same circumstances today. Undoubtedly, a mid-wife officiated instead of a physician. It was not considered polite for men to preside at so intimate an event. The first regular obstetrician in this country was John Moultrie of Charleston, who died in 1775. The first lectures on obstetrics were given by Shippen in 1765. In Virginia there were no "men mld- wives," as they were called, until Andrew Anderson established himself in Williamsburg in 1760, which was 37 years after the birth of Washington. At Washington's birth there was no attempt at asepsis, no way to ease the pains oC the mother. The only way to shorten labor was by the old method of quilling. I have seen this practiced by Negro mid- EARLIER DAYS An Interesting nnlty l-Yatiiro !lra*vn Frnni the (Hobe-Giwettt'a rlk'j* of ihr Venrji Gone Fly, Dr. Clendenlng Thirty Years Ago-Zenas C.

Norris have returned from a week at Des Moines, where Mayor Norris was in at- received a letter today from a friend in Chicago," writes L. M. D. of southeast Mason City. "The following statement contained in It rather astounded me: " '1 understand there are more foreign languages spoken in Mason City than in any city (in the TJ. S.). 1 may be all wet about that but perhaps you can enlighten me on the subject.' "It would seem that folks in other parts of the country know more about our city than we native Mason Cityites. But on second thought, perhaps I have not been as observant as I might have been. "Without ever giving the subject much thought, I was under the impression that New York City, where so many European immigrants quite naturally settle, would claim the title to foreign speaking peoples. "Can some of you 'Eye' fans help me out of a rather embarrassing situation?" In the 1920 census it was revealed that there were natives of i55 nations living in Mason City. Iceland, I recall, was one of. these. It was said that Mason City was the must cosmopolitan city of its size in the United States but I understood that many of the large cities surpassed us. It would be very surprising to me to learn that we exceeded New York, Chicago, Detroit. Philadelphia, Cleveland, Los Angeles. San Francisco, Milwaukee, Baltimore, St. Louis, New Orleans, Atlanta, Boston or any of the great cities. Until I have information to the contrary I'm going on assuming that our distinction in tlua regard is within our own population class. -- o -am favorably impressed by an insurance policy just brought to my attention under which the driver who reveals a disposition to avoid accidents is given the benefit of a reduced rate. If there are no accidents for one year, there's a certain reduction anci this progresses until the fifth yeni- when the policy-holder is assumed to be a prudent driver eligible to the lowest possible rate. . That strikes me as being the one most constructive approach to this problem of reducing highway mis- In his introduction, there was the promise that he would present the latest information on NRA. As it worked out, however, he spent one minute telling about a "field day" for critics and the remainder of his time extolling the virtues of his administration of the recovery program and, in terms more picturesque than profound, taking his critics apart. To the "new dealer" his efforts were dramatically fiery. To the doubter, they were clownishly bombastic and juvenile. There can be no question, despite his effusive invitations for fair criticism, that his condemnation of newspapers, by slighting reference to news policies and by resort to barroom language in attacking an unnamed newspaper, was based on newspapers having taken him at face value in Us previous calls for criticism. In striking contrast with his treatment of newspapers was his almost sugary reference to the whole- souled co-operation received from the radio networks. Just what is the essential difference between the press and the radio so far us Ihis and other phases of tlie administration's program are concerned? Let's see. It can be stated rather concisely. The newspapers have battled for their priceless listener only to irreparable loss of health, wealth, appetite, comfort or pleasure. But demanding that a listener either turn off the radio or become a party to a conspiracy to violate the liquor laws is carrying the thing a bit too far. As for us, we already had enough reasons for tuning out certain radio programs. These reasons keep us jumping up and trotting across the room every three or four minutes all evening--or at least until our patience runs out. We do not relish the prospect of being yanked out of our easy chair at intervals-after we're worn to a frazzle from dialing--simply to help some gin distiller keep from breaking the law. As far as we're concerned the distillers can take the rap. wives. It consists in putting a turkey quill filled with pepper into the nostrils of the mother, and blowing the pepper into her nose. She sneezes so hard that the baby is born precipitately. Today if anything- of the kind is attempted it is done more scientifically with a drug called "pitruitrin." It has been reported recently that mid-wives are safer than physicians at births. In Washington's case, at any rate, the child was healthy and the mother lived to be 83. Washington's whole life, so far as his relation with physicians is concerned, is an example of this superiority of modern medicine. When he was 19 years old he had a bad attack of the smallpox, which marked iiis face for life. Nowadays, of 'course, he would have been vaccinated against smallpox before he was a year old. Vaccination was not introduced until 17S18. Inoculation, a different method of preventing smallpox, however, was, and when smallpox was raging in the Continental army, Washington tried earnestly to get the Virginia assembly to repeal the law which forbade inoculation. He died of diphtheria, and was treated by repeated bleedings. Nowadays, of course, he would have re ceived antitoxin and probably survived, or he would have received diphtheria preventive treatment when he was young and never have caught the disease. tendance at the meeting of the legislative committee relative to municipalities.

Why should the chronic accident-maker be permitted to penalize those who drive with care ? Life insurance companies reserve the right to give preference to those who by age or health are preferred risks. In fact, that's their universal practice. Why shouldn't this be carried over into the other fields ? And while I'm on this general subject, I've never changed my opinion that nobody should lie permitted to sit behind the wheel of an automobile who can't provide substantial proof--through insurance or bond--that he or she is qualified to discharge whatever obligation may result from driving. --o-can't vouch for this story but it is one that could easily be applicable to the present special session of the legislature. It has to do with a member--I won't even suggest or" which house --whose proficiency with playing cards had made him more famous in his own community than any known qualities of statesmanship possessed hy him. That fame was purely local, however, and when he got into professional company at Des Moines, his poker finesse wasn' 1 : in evidence. In fact, he was being "taken for a. ride" just about every night, with his loss by night exceeding his legislative allowance by day. One day, to continue with the story, he turned to a backwoods member of the legislature and lamented over the fact that the session showed no signs of adjournment. He said he longed for the homo scenes--and his thoughts were of the poker novices who contributed so regularly anl so generously to him, To this member who was f i n d i n g an income of ?0.00 a day an unprecedented thrill, the willingness of anybody to forego it was utterly inexplicable, as it would be to numerous others of the assembly. He turned to the legislator of "speculative" habits aiut in open amazement interrogated him: "Ain't you gittin' your per diem per day?" There was a moment of silence before the poker devotee replied, with a filr-away look in his eye and a note of sadness in his voice: "Yenli, I'm getting my per diem per day. That isn't it. It's that I'm not gelling my per noctem per night." --o-tried once in this space tu my respects to the CWA beneficiaries w h o h a v P t r u m p e d up a pretext to get damages from Uncle Sam. R. H.

"Red" Faber has bowed to the one whom no one can defeat, "Father Time." The oldest major league ball player I has hurled his last spit ball and Saturday turned up at the White Sox office with the statement, "I guess I have been in there long: enough. I have no plans for the future. There isn't anything left to say." Thus this grand old pitcher is going back to the farm at Cascade, Iowa, with a life-time of service behind him at 45. Statistics might say that Urban Faber is not through as it was only last fall that he blanked the Cubs, 2-0 in city neries and but on e player reached third base. But Fnber might wish to retire while hia sun is still aglow rather than setting Baseball is like privilege and sacred responsibility of expressing their opinions--a corollary to freedom of speech and as much a right of the public as of the newspaper profession. A free press stands today as the surest protection against the dictatorship which could evolve so easily and naturally from the philosophy expounded almost daily by such apostles of the new dispensation as Hugh Johnson, Donald Richberg and Rexford Tugwell. The radio is under the absolute thumb of Washington, with the haunting specter of a license denial for stations which don't fall into the goose-step. Freedom of speech does not--and cannot under the licensing system--extend to the air. The radio industry is for the national recovery act because it dares not be against it. Newspapers generally are for it because they believe in it. They reserve the right, however, to say that It's wrong when and if they believe it's wrong.

In the geographical distribution of support it would seem that Colflesh has .-t much larger area back of him than either or both of the other two candidates.

ONCE OVERS iif j. i. Mcsnv-- SIT STILL--OR GO HOME! Arc you a wiggler in your theater seat? If so you arc a most annoying person. Usually theater seats are staggered so that It Is possible to get a good view of the stage at all times. But the Inccs.sant mover-about makes It necessary for many people seated behind him to change their positions. And this wiggly sort of person may be counted upon to keep talking to his or her companion, so that it is impossible for others to hear what Is spoken on the stage. To be unable to sit still in a theater Is perfect evidence of lack of self-control. It denotes a weakness that will show itself later in excesses of many different kinds. This wiggly person reveals himself as the sort of person who is unable to keep his mind centered on the subject requiring close attention. Don't be so unstable; if you are, certainly do not proclaim it to the world. No man wants a wife of that sort, and a sensible girl doesn't want that kind of a husband, so SIT STILL, or go home.
