"Down With King George." And the king in question was George III, not the present British monarch. # 3 V One viewpoint is that building a formidable navy will "add fuel to a smouldering fire." Another is that this navy will come in enormously handy if that smouldering fire should break into a world conflagration. * S * Fred Biermann's suggestion that we let the prin- cinles of Christianity dictate our international relationships is ducky--except that it doesn't seem to give us any formula for Shinto Japan or atheist Russia. . t t- s If the democratic party doesn't produce a job for that young student editor at the University of Iowa, it will invite criticism as an ingrate. Sometimes Hugh Johnson's methods make one wonder whether President Roosevelt has really found his General Grant yet. DAILY SCRAP BOOK HITLER'BARS SCOUTING /-Â»ERMAN nationalism is in the foreground with an^ other narrow viewpoint. Nazi ofCicials have issued an order that the. German Boy Scout association must be dissolved at once. The nazi officials say that the scout organization is no longer needed in Germany. A movement for youth, educating them for nazi disciples, is to take its place. The Hitler administration objects to the Boy Scout association Ucause it is a part of an international movement. It desires that the German youth shall not be imbued with any spirit of internationalism througt association with Boy Scouts of other countries. Â· The idea is but another Hitler vanity. Germany cannot, through its individualism, ever pull itself up by its bootstraps into a. nation of largi t resources and great power. It will remain as simply a criticising and scolding nation, unless its youth are promptly taught that instead of Germany being isolated from other countries, its policies should be such as to encourage world cooperation. Germany's nationalism will in time fade into the background. The house of the nazi is being builded on the sands. The Hitler ideas, as now announced, will never create a great nation. The day that nations can greatly thrive through dependence solely upou their own resources has long gone by. The future will tend more and more to co-operative international policies. The association of youth from various nations, through such organizations as the Boy Scouts, will in the end be found even by the nazis to be of value in giving to the German youth a breadth and liberality which future generations will demand. AN EARNEST FIRST STEP HE three-point tax bill passed by the special ses- sioa of the legislature impresses the Globe-Gazette being an earnest and honest attempt to do some- ag^^ut'iBiiintolferable.tajt situationÂ·inÂ«_jpwa. It isn't''exai-jtiy"-thelull -we *o"i2d"iiave'-writiteu if matter had been left to us and it's evident that it isn't going to have universal approbation. Neither would the bill drawn by us or by anybody else. A difference of opinion is inescapable. Waiting for unanimity of viewpoint could mean only one thing--continued inaction. No plan of taxation is ever going to be popular with those who have to pay the bill. Often, if not generally, an individual's estimate of a tax plan is conditioned by the degree that he can escape his fair load. We may as well admit it. Iowa was confronted with a. situation in which real property bore an oppressive load. The legislature, guided in reasonable measure, at least, by an able governor, has tried to do something about it. A bill, combining the sales ana income tax idea and designed to raise $20,000,000, is the result. In its operation, it may prove either deficient or defective. Changes undoubtedly will suggest themselves, based on experience and observation. In the meantime, we are disposed to accept the bill as an intelligent first step toward the goal of a balanced system to raise public revenue in Iowa. ATT A 'GIRL, MAE I ]\ ffAE WEST is inviting gangdom to "come up and Â·'Â·*- see me some time" if necessary. The gal who popularized curves and well-upholstered screen actresses announces that she will brave threats by appearing as witness against men accused of robbing her of jewels and cash, saying, "The Los Angeles district attorney's office and the police department arc efficient and have kept Hollywood as clean as possible of crooks, but their work is in vain if those on whom the gangsters prey do not do their part and go to court on the side of the law." The petite Mae continues -,ritn her definition of what constitutes good citizenship, "I have to do it a? a citizen; I have to do it for society. They threaten us in the picture colony under penalty of having acid thrown in our faces. And they don't stop at acid threats either. They threaten to kill. It is time someone called their 'hand' and if it has to be me, I'll do it." Atta girl, Mae. Besides the break you'll be giving the court attaches by appearing in these cases, you'll be destroying that tradition which has been growing steadfast which says that a celebrity should cower in fear of what, might happen in testimony against gang- dom.

FATAL RELICS OF WAR La Crosse (Wis.) Tribune: Mines put into the sea during the World war still are afloat. A F""} 1 *" steamer recently found one in the Baltic sea and had it destroyed. Since the war one Swedish naval officer has found and destroyed more than 3oO drifting mines-hideous engines of death, waiting to slip into the -aths of unsuspecting ship captains. That such hazards still exist on the high seas is rather shocking to one's sense of security. But when you stop to think about it, the wonder is that there are not more of them around to cause tragedies Mines were tossed into the water in an indescribably prodigal manner during the war. When the armistice arrived, the allied navies spent months picking them up; but in the very nature of things it was inevitable that they should miss a greac many. The world really is very lucky that these derelict mines have not proved a far greater hazard to postwar ocean traffic. _ i INSULL--AT SUNSET Â· Emporia, Kansas, Gazette: What a pitiful spectacle is Samuel Insull--a poor old man, busted financially, broken physically, shattered spiritually--who never had much arrogance and pride. Such a measly capital! Now he; stands alone under the sun and stars, with every nation barring him; an involuntary exile with only the yawning/door oij-the penitentiary assuring .him of welcome. 'WMt^aiPending! What a'career! A life of greedy-spinnihg'onJa web that broke with the first breath of bad times. 'What a failure.

IT'S ILLOGLCAL, AT LEAST Livcrmore Gazette: Some of our day laborers can hardly be blamed if they fail to see justice in the way some of our laws are working out. It seems that CWA laborers have been told that they cannot draw money from the CWA if they are going to spend it for booze. At least it is reported that some v/orkers in nearby towns have been wiped off the slate for doing just that. And now that argue that "the government gave us back liquor, and then fires us for drinking it."

There was a 'ime when it was reasoned that posing: as a county paper conveyed the impression of widespread influence but now most papers are content to be identified with the town in which they are printed. It's a further observation that other newspapers printed in a county where the all- embracing newspaper name is used are just a bit resentful. Generally speaking, people think in terms of towns rather than of counties and for quoting purposes, the name of the town is far more revealing than the name of_ the county. That by way of explaining why the exchange editor on this page sometimes takes the liberty to substitute a town for a county when setting down the credit line for a borrowed editorial. --o-have records to show American motorists are doing an _ enormous amount of night driving at 50 miles an hour with 20 miles an hour headlights. Night accidents are increasing and, in addition, a larger proportion of such accidents is resulting in deaths. Now the fault lies not so much with the car as with the driver. Good headlights are available if motorists will but use them. Even on a car several years old it doesn't take much time or money to have adequate headlighting equipment installed. It's a common sight to see a car speeding along the highway with but a single headlight. It's also common to see headlights that glare to such an extent that they blind oncoming motorists. Other lights are so badly out of focus that they are far from their maximum efficiency. Check your headlights today. See that they are in condition to do a good job. H -By LOGAN CLENDEN1NG, to. D. ELECTROLYSIS REMOVES HAIR I OW man came to be relatively naked is not an easy question to answer. Some people believe that it was caused by the habit of wearing clothes, living in hot houses, and other features of the civilized life. Perhaps, on the contrary, it was an evolutionary adaptation, and the explanation is exactly the oppo- ii[n-- s ite of the above one--that, in short, the lack of hair caused man to wear clothes, not that clothes caused the lack of hair. Certainly in the prehistoric period of savage civilization, hair must have been necessary to the human animal, as to other animals, mostly Jfor protection agatit cold. It/ is; : not surprising, therefore, that' such things as superfluous hairs should occur. Perhaps it is more natural that they should occur than that they shouldn't. Superfluous hairs, however, are no different from other kinds of hair. If you will study the anatomy and growth of hair as outlined in the Dr. Clendeninj: first article this week, you will see that the removal of superfluous hair by ordinary means simply removes the top part and leaves the root in, and a new hair will grow in to take its place. It is not necessarily true that the removal of hair by razor or other mechanical means will cause the succeeding hairs to grow in thicker. Probably the origin of this idea is that when a young boy begins to shave his beard gets thicker and coarser, but that simply follows the natural development of the hair on the face. It tends to get coarser as age advances. There are several ways to remove superfluous hair. It would be very unfair to say that any one method is the best. In many cases, the use of a razor is probably as good as any. A German dermatologist recently came out flat-footedly and said that the best way was to make an application of 10 parts of hydrogen peroxide and 50 parts of alcohol, apply this on a towel over the superfluous hairs, and then rub them off with pumice stone. For permanent removal the root itself must be HANGING TO A COAT-TAIL I N KANSAS, there are eleven candidates on the "democratic ticket for governor, and each one of them announces his candidacy in this fashion: "I advocate the principle of the new deal and the recovery program and the leadership of President Roosevelt." When was hanging to another's coat-tail a New Deal? Unless otherwise indicated, it will be taken for "ranted that every democrat supports the president But the relation of the Roosevelt recovery program to state government is remote, at the best, and unless our democratic brethren in Kansas have something to offer the voters, there isn't much reason to place them in office. If support of the president is to be the keynote in the campaigns for state office during an off year, what will be the slogan in 1936? EDITOR'S MAIL BAG "DOGS" MASON CITY, Feb. 28.--The apostle John, in his wonderful word-picture of the new Jerusalem as he sees'- ; descending from heaven, gives us Â«. list of the'' defenders who may not enter that city, and who, he' .eclares, are without the gates. The first word in tike list is "dog," and our nation, one of the foremost in the ranks of those who claim to be carrying the Word 1 of Truth to those in darkness, needs to call a tialt on the dog craze which is now passing over the land. Dogs are fine and useful animals in their place-as the servant of man--but as a pampered and petted member of the human family they become a nuisance at best. The American woman who is so prone to go to extremes is in danger of making herself ridiculous over this dog fad, and the modern home echoes oftener perhaps to the barking of poodles than to the music of childish voices. Imagine the feelings of a young husband who, after his day's work, approaches the castle of his dreams where he rightfully hopes for a haven of comfort and loving cheer, only to be greeted by the noisy yapping of one or more offensive smelling dogs. He sinks into an easy chair but it is covered with canine hairs which cling- to his clothes. If his young wife drives to meet him, the ever-present pet dog peers from the car window. And what man worthy of the name ever points with pride to "my wife and dogs?" If the women of our land were justified in refusing the caress of "lips that touch tobacco" surely our men should let it be known in no uncertain tones that the "hands that fondle dogs shall never touch mine." One of our seaport cities has an elaborate hotel devoted to the care of pet dogs whose doting mistresses were obliged to leave them at home while they went abroad. Thousands of children are hungry and homeless but these lap dogs are not neglected. The sight of an elegantly dressed woman or girl being led through the streets by a snub nosed bulldog or an ugly, lonj haired Pekinese may give us a hint as to the origin of the saying, "America is going to the dogs." A blind man in an Iowa town had a large collie which led him safely through its streets for a number of years. A useful and noble animal, devoted to his master. But surely an intelb'gent woman with a proper sense of the fitness of things ought to consider seriously where her feet may lead her when they are led by a leash fastened to the collar of her pampered pet dog.

Whether the X-ray should be used for permanent depilation or not is doubtful. It has been urged that it should be used in the abundant growth of fine, downy hair, which is difficult to treat with the electric needle. But, on the contrary, these fine, downy hairs are the ones which are most resistant to radiation. To remove hair permanently, 'the amount of X-ray exposure required is such that it often causes permanent changes in the skin itself. Thirty Years Ago-Mrs. W. J.

MM!Di SMALLER CITIES FOR FRIENDSHIP Most young men and women who have jobs in smaller cities long to go to the larger centers for employment in their special lines. Remuneration is larger but so also are expenses and demands are greater. There is less sentiment in business in any large city. Employes are not given the consideration they, are accorded in the smaller places. There is a demand for experts--less tolerance toward errors. It might surprise many young persons to learn the number of persons holding jobs and positions in cities who would trade them willingly for the more secure places of those employed in smaller places. Only the person who has been reared in a city and therefore has a number of school friends is able to establish many close friendships in later life. Friendships formed by those who go. to cities in their adult years are confined very largely to persons met in places of employment. In churches and other places, people also are met, to be sure, but usually-those persons have their own little circle of friends and are not particularly anxious to add to the number. Such friendships have not the stability acquired during school days and carried on through a lifetime.

According to this explanation a small hotel in Sandusky, Ohio, called the Porter House, was the inspiration and Charles Dickens the person who applied the name. It was in 1847 that the famous English writer visited the Porter House. He was so pleased with a steak served there that he spread its fame through the United States, referring to it as the steak served in the Porter House in Ohio.
