MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 7 1933 ELEVEN P U L S E OF THE FARM By THE FA KM EDITOB Iowa has just inaugurated a new police system, in an attempt to make the highways more safe for travelers. While the attmept is laudable and should have the support of everyone who drives a car or rides in one, on the highway, the force of 50 men in 99 counties seems pitifully small. Only the most flagrant of offenses will be seen by the officers and then, mostly after the damage is done. It is stated that there were nearly a million accidents last year including 36,000 deaths from automobiles. Nothing but a better training in law observance with emphasis on the rights of others, coupled with the same courtesy we give our fellow citizens when we are pedes- trains, will ever.lessen the death and accident rate that we are now making,--unless it becomes possible to set a maximum speed limit on every car, on the road, and seal it so that the maximum can not be exceeded and a broken seal to mean fine and imprisonment. FOOL DRIVER SHOULD HAVE JAIL SENTENCE. Last Sunday I was in the Palisades park, near Cedar Rapids. There were hundreds of cars parked and a host of men, women and children enjoying the playground the state has prepared for them. The roadways in the park are excellent and every grade is guarded by short posts along the edge to prevent anyone from running off the grade; but, in spite of all this, there was one man who did not make one of the turns, broke off a couple of posts and rolled over and down into a tree, where his car lodged--the auto a wreck; but fortunately, or unfortunately, the driver was not killed nor badly injured. I went with the crowd to see the wreck and on one corner of the smashed windshield there was a sticker which read "Officially tested and approved by Mrs. Miller, secretary of state. No Good Reasons For Accidents." Wnat can we do with such a driver? I suggest that he be given a jail sentence besides a fine for the damage. Keep him in jail long enough for him to meditate on how much, of a menace he is to the public. I would arrest him just as we SPECIAL PURCHASE SALE OF "Big Chief" 100% Pure BARN PAINT Extra Heavy Body -- Wears Like Iron To demonstrate our Faint ^^ §Sf PER Values . . . we offer for 10 days ^tf JC^ |» GAL. only, this Faint at the UN- 4QB ^^ U In 5 Gallon HEARD OF LOW PRICE OF ^^^ q£J Lots We Sell Nothing But PAINT!

In this case, the state had done all it could do, under our present laws for the safety of the public. He had been required to get a driver's license; the secretary of state had certified that the car was all right mechanically; the state had built a good road, which in this case was a one-way road and it had taken precautions to' guard tlie car from going off the edge, and hundreds of cars had passed over it in safety; but this person had found a way to break through the guard posts and plunge down the bank and only luck prevented him from killing himself and others. Such a menace on the highway should be branded a common enemy and given a jail sentence as well as a fine, so that the disgrace would act as a preventative. We do not hesitate to arrest and sequester a person found on the street afflicted with small pox; but this potential danger--the fool driver, we pass by with a shrug or the shoulder and we may be his next victim. THRElCOWNES CUTTING WHEAT At Work on 90 Acre Field in Owen Township Owned by Midland. By ARTHUR PICKFORD Globe-Gazette Farm Editor The spectacle of three combines whittling away a 90 acre wheat field was observed Wednesday on section 4 in Owen township. The crop belongs to the Midland Insurance company and is being managed by A. G. Thurman of Cedar Rapids. It is one of several fields varying from 80 to 160 acres in extent that the company put into winter wheat last fall. The field that was being cut Wednesday was in the best shape of any of the .wheat fields--long and quite straight. It is said to be yielding 25 to 30 bushels an acre. Two men operate the tractor and the combine and two trucks haul away all the three combines thesh. They seem to be doing a good job of threshing. The machines cut a 10 foot swath and can cut from 20 to 30 acres a day depending on conditions. Needless to say, they put in every hour the daylight and weather will permit.

(.T)--More than a hundred sheriffs, deputies and local officers, under the command of Supt. E. D. Min- tener of the state department of justice, held the touchy Morrell packing plant strike situation under precarious control today after subduing widespread fighting early this morning. Armed with tear gas, pistols and clubs, the peace officers, called from 15 counties by Mintener yesterday, prevented any serious damage or injuries as pickets outside the plant and non-union men inside the plant engaged in a fight with rocks and sling-shots. The officers were jeered continually this morning as they escorted five non-union men to the plant. Meanwhile, about 760 non-union workers remained within the plant. Mintener offered to escort them to their homes last night but the workers declined. Many of them have been inside the plant since the strike was called July IS.

Adonis (Frcnchy) Howard, 35, died at an Independence hospital Tuesday night from tuberculosis of the brain. He was formerly of Elma, but had resided in many sections of the country and was employed for about 10 years as a linotype operator at the Mason City Globe-Gazette. Mr. Howard was a World war veteran and had spent considerable time in government hospitals, where he was treated for injuries received while in service. Following his employment in Mason City he moved to Florida, where he was also engaged in newspaper work, but returned to Iowa when his health failed. He also lived a number of years in Clear Lake. Surviving Mr. Howard are his wife, Mrs. May Howard, Orlando, Fla.; his mother, DCS Moines; a sister, Millicent, St. Paul; and two brothers, Elma. His father, Frank Howard, editor of the Elma New Era, was killed in 1929 when struck by a train while walking across the track. The body was taken to Elrna, where services will be held. Understanding School Master Writes About His Handling of Boys By GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. "WHEN BOYS GO OFF TO SCHOOL" is the title of a recent book written by Archibald Rutledge. Hundreds of my readers have enjoyed articles by Professor Rutledge in leading magazines. You, like me, have been inspired by his practical idealism, his unusual insight into the minds and hearts of youth, and his sympathy for his fcilowmen. As you know, Mr. Rutledge is head of the department of English, Mercersburg academy. Over a period of years 6,000 different boys have sat at his feet. Often have I regretted that I was a boy at that school about 115 years too early. Here is the first sentence of his book; "Whenever parents send a boy away to school or college, their chief concern is usually with the , the tuberculosis sanitorium, dale.

Crawford was found, lost and hungry, in the capital, and shared the president's dinner. human contacts that their child will make in that new and unknown world into which he has departed." A few more choice statements from the book: " . . . And what makes an individual is his di££erentness. Personality is a departure from the , routine run. And the'thing we call.! charm is due to the perennial wonder of originality "In teaching boys, the best beginning is for the teacher to say to himself: 'Here is a lonely soul come to me for comfort; here is a mind as good as mine, or far better, and certainly fresher. It is not like any other mind in the world. I must find out who this person is, must reverence his personality, and attempt, not to force my own thoughts ana ideas upon him, but to give his own capacities a happy chance to express themselves.' . . . ." Mr. Rutledge regrets that so many teachers "teach their obsessions." "So quickly and adroitly do students become aware of a teachers certainty to ramble off on his favorite theme that they become experts at cranking the crank, as a result of which they get something bizarre and assuredly not pertinent. Incidentally their own deficiency remains undetected. This senseless loss of time, if not as positively (lamaging to morality as telling of dubious stories, is certainly injurious to morale, and puts upon the whole cause of education the stigma of the ridiculous . . . "I have taught more than b.uuu boys, and never yet have I known one who would react favorably to sarcasm or ridicule. . . . The real trouble with sarcasm is that its venom embitters an otherwise gentle and trusting human spirit. Clearly the author of this book believes in modern youth and presents a hopeful outlook.
