TT IS a little hard to discover exactly what interpretation is to bo placed upon the settlement of the Peek-Tugwell row which last week threatened a serious rebellion in the new deal. The agricultural administration codes for the .food industries were taken away from the AAA and turned over to the NRA, which would seem to have taken them out of the area of Tugwell's "brain-trust" interference, to which Peek objected. But Tugwell stays on the job, which would indicate his clash with Peek was not lost altogether, and Peek was transferred. It may be that Mr. Roosevelt figures that he split the difference, and let each side make a point. In essence, of course, the removal of the codes to the NRA, which is a rather cautious organization in spite of the hard-boiled lan- ; guage of General Johnson, is a move toward ; conservatism. There is very little professorial { nonsense about the NRA. It actually does give industry a break, although many employers :u-e moaning to high heaven because of its interference in the individualistic anarchy which previously prevailed in business. In general, established concerns which have been suffering long from chiselers welcome the NRA code and the authority to make their industry's cheaters behave. The outbreak is significant of the break that is coming, soon or late, between the practical, experienced men of business in the new deal and the theories of the professoriat. George Peek is a practical man, who learned about ·· larm needs by actual experience selling agricul- , tural implements. Professor Tugwell is a theo- l retical economist. The record of the farm-relief V iu' OJ ^ t3 Up to this P oint does llot indicate that ,.Hthe theories on which it was based have been C fl y - S ° Und- . Most of them are P arti al or flops in practice. It is a fair guess that T d "^ ther , have their a « ai P L°« dp - th6 ?' left in the h!nrts o m Peek than in those of men like Tugwell , A lofc more of this is coming to tho front of the stage before long. For it is not only in the torn rehef section of the new deal that the flash between practical experience and schoolroom theory is coming. There will be a row to be heard around the country when congress meets, because the experienced politicians are pretty well fed up with the "brain trust" themselves. They, too, think that practical experience ought to have some weight; in politics as ,, T? eM - They do llot relish beins fobbed otl while the fair-haired boys from Princeton Cornell and Columbia have the ear of the president. THE TUGWELL BILL TUST about every person who really dips into J the new Tugwell pure food and drug measure comes up with the same conclusion, namely: That the laws already existent on this subject are entirely adequate to reach quack medicines ;md fraudulent advertising if properly enforced. The distinguishing characteristic of the Tugwell measure is that it permits a Washing- tan bureau to strike down legitimate as well as ·wild cat industry. It promotes bureaucracy in its most pronounced and inexcusable form. The claim of its backers is that it is aimed )-rimariIy at radio, which admittedly has affronted the ethics of advertising. If that IS the goal, why not approach the subject in a direct and honest way, without giving Mr. Tugwell or his professorial associates a carte blanche to dictate to the press and the food and drug industries? Some will say that this is reducing the sit- \iation to an absurdity, that nobody has any such intention of handicapping legitimate industry. Why then is there such a demand for the authority to do so ? Newspapers are insistent upon the preservation of their complete freedom of opinion. They insist that it be specifically guaranteed in their code, believing that in the final analysis it's a right of the people rather than merely of the press that's at stake. While denying and pooh poohing the suggestion that a curb on that freedom is desired, the code authorities balk at letting the guarantee clause be included in the code. Here again, why? With some of the spokesmen of the new deal already claiming a mandate from and partnership with God in the administration's program, one can't be sure at all to what lengths inspired executives clothed with unlimited authority might permit their zeal to travel in the future. Appropriate safeguards against a complete bureaucracy or dictatorship are for the good of all. ji Have you noted that practically all the of- 'icials believed by the democratic administration to be inefficient or crooked are republicans? . FOR THE U. S. A. J^ALPH BLUMENFELD, who started in the newspaper business in Wisconsin as a printer's devil, and is now editor of the London Express, says some things about Hitler in his present visit to his old home state to which his position gives weight. All of Europe, he says, is in fear that Germany is planning a new war. Hitler's ideas are appalling, when explained without the qualifications of public utterance. That is not so startling, however, as JMr. Blumenfeld's declaration that Germany is by no means disarmed and helpless. It is understood pretty well that Hitler is a firebrand, but it has been assumed that he was not in a position to flame very freely. The French extinguisher was presumed to be more than sufficient to stop an outbreak, even if Hitler should go on the loose. Mr. Bltimenfeld says that Germany has provided herself with new and deadly gasses and military equipment that make her a formidable enemy, even though she is deprived of conventional weapons. That has been repeatedly alleged by the inflammatory French press, but it takes on serious weight when publicly asserted by a man of Mr. Bltimeiifeld's character and position. The editor of the London Express is in a position to know what he is talking about and is unlikely to be uttering false propaganda. The decision of the United States to bow it- seJf gracefully out of the Geneva arms conference, except as a spectator taking no responsibility for its course, is illuminated by Mr. Blumenfeld's statement. It is of course to our interest to work as heartily for peace and disarmament as we can. But it is also to our interest to avoid any commitment or responsibility tor what is essentially a neighborhood feud of Europe. The more serious the rivalry appears the further away we must keep. For our well- meant participation on one side or the other might precipitate the catastrophe. We are for neither. We are for the U. S. A THREJ? OTHER EDITORS BUREAUCRACY NEVER HELPED ANYTHING Davenport Times: To impose a criminal code against the publication of an advertisement which'"bv ambiguity or inference creates a misleading impression is going a bit too far. There should be truth in advertising, the public should be protected against exploitation, particularly the tick, but great industries should not be jeopardizc-U by professional zeal. · Dr - Harve y Wiley performed a great public service when he waged his campaign upon shameless adulteration and quackery. Yet the charlatan and quack have continued to flourish. It is more important that teeth be put in the existing statutes dealing with those who deal in fake cures for incurable afflictions, that the penalties be made so severe that those traffickers in human misery will be forced out of business or put in the penitentiaries, than that we set up a bureaucracy to maintain the purity of cosmetics.

Probably i n the same pocket with our Faniam -bridge prospect Ickes Hunks he is a friend of the dear common ouopie But ms love for the commoners is overshadowed in tliis case by Jus regard for the interests of the people who own the present bridge and are using it to collect S200 000 annually from the public more than a fair return en ,1 fair value of their property. HAS A GOOD INCOME Oehvein Register: We would think more of the criticisms Will Rogers makes of the idle rich in this country if we did not know that he was getting 5125,000 for each appearance in a talking picture, and he appears in three a year, and in addition to that ho receives a good fat sum for his syndicated f u n n y paragraph in the newspapers every day.'He can afford to make some wise cracks about the wealthy men of the country as long as his income keeps up at this rate. IT WOULD RE EXPENSIVE ECONOMY WJnnchago Kepulilincii: One of the economies suggested to the state legislature is the abolishment of the Iowa state highway commission. To the man on the sidelines his looks like a suggestion that runs counter to the best interests of the state. If we ever needed a state highway commission we need it right now. The road business of Iowa is becoming more and more important every year. We have invested in our roads, now, millions upon millions of dollars and we are going to invest much more. 'NOKA SPRINGS GOES AHEAU Nora Springs Advertiser: A man who livtd 1'or a number of years in and about Nora Springs, recently visited our town. He CHpecIally commented on the improvements that had been made. A f t e r looking over the business and residence portion" of the town, he said it showed more marks of prosperity as indicated by the condition of the buildings than any other place he had visited on a trip of several hundred miles. "WKECKLESS" DRIVERS WANTED Emmons, Minn., leader: Will the Albert Lea Tribune please excuse us for asking- how it comes that a man can be fined for "wreckless" driving, as it stated in a recent news item? All along we have liar- bored the idea that "wreckless" driving was the best kind, but it seems this fellow was fined $100 for it. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG WHY EDUCATE THEM THEN? MASON CITY, Dec. 18.--Taking the question of the married woman working from a patriotic and business viewpoint--as the corporations of Mason City (Brick and Tile, Standard Oil, Bell Telephone, P. p. E., Krnpge and Wool worth, schools) do not employ marricfl women: Just how long would the so called home industries who do employ married women last-iC they were not supported by the unmarried business woman? It is the contention that the married women at the heads of retail stores are indispensable because of their experience but why are we paying taxes to educate this generation if they are not capable of taking the big jobs? We don't need tn educate dishwashers and ditcli diggers. On the other hand can we as a nation afford to pay taxes to educate a generation and then continue to pay taxes for jails ami prisons to keep them in because we as chi.ielera will not give them the same chonce we were given by the generation before us?

The knowledge that such a patrol would more than sustain itself, as it does hi Minnesota and other -slates, is a convincing argument in /avor of it too. The only point against the highway patrol is that it might nerve to cause motorists to relax on their efforts in safety education.

Write legibly and not moro than "00 words By LOGAN ri.ENDE.NlNG. M. ! ' LEMON JUICE AID TO TEETH UOR many years we have neen hearing reports about L the effect of diet on the health of teeth. At first these reports were somewhat vague. Later on they became more definite. When they were definite enough to make a challenge, it was found that the older ideas were still sufficiently plausible to be debatable. The old ideas were that tooth decay, pyorrhea, cavities and gum infection were due entirely to the invasion by bacteria from outside of the structures of the mouth. What the old ideas did not take into account was the factor of resistance. They did not ask why Mr. Jones and Mr. Brown had tooth decay while Mr. Robinson and Mr. Smith did not, at the same time acknowledging the peculiar circumstance that Smith, Jones, Brown and Robinson lived in the same apartment building, worked in the Dr. ClemJeninK same office, ate fooci from the same grocery, and in all ways, so far as external conditions were concerned, were exposed to the same circumstances. The new idea, briefly, is that while all of them may be exposed to the same germs and the same onslaughts on their teeth, a varying defense has been set up, which, if it is a good defense, protects the teeth of Robinson and Smith, and allows the external factors to break down the teeth of Brown and Jones. The only factor that has been considered so far is diet, and this idea gains great strength from the publication by the University of Chicago o£ an extremely careful study of the whole situation. This is embodied in a book called "Diet and Dental Health." The author, Milton T. Hnnke, concludes quite definitely that: "1. The average American diet is adequate in calories, but appears to be deficient in certain substances that are requisite to dental health. This dietary deficiency .may be the ultimate cause of much of the gingivitis, pyorrhea and dental caries with which we are afflicted. "2. Gingivitis and dental caries can occur in the majority of a large group of children who are receiving a quart of milk, one and one-half ounces of butter, a pound of vegetables, half a pound of frviit, and nearly one egg a day. These foods do not, therefore, contain substances that are specifically antagonistic to gingivitis or dental caries. "S. The addition of a pint of orange juice and the juice of one lemon to a diet that IK nearly adequate in all other respects supplies something that leads to a disappearance of most of the gingivitis, and an arrest of ^aboiit 50 per cent of the dental caries. "-1. Dental caries again becomes rampant and gingivitis re-develops in most cases when the citrus fruit intake is reduced to three ounces a day for one year. Three ounces Is not enough. "5. Children display a definite tendency toward the development of carious lesions which is nil or low in some cases and high In others. The administration of an adequate amuont of citrus fruit juice to a diet that is nearly adequate in other respects, reduces the intensity or the caries process, but does not completely remove the effects of the inherent tendency in all cases. "8. Orange and lemon juice contain something that acts as a growth stimulus to children."

"But it lias alsvays seemed to me that many of those who make a business of praying in public show a tendency to tell the Maker rather than ask Him. Not infrequently, the person doing the praying takes occasion to preach a young sermon, filled with information that obviously must be known to an nil- knowing providence." As near as I can judge from this note, the writer must have been thinking of the parson who began his prayer: "As Thou hast doubtless seen by the evening newspapers, etc." Whenever I think of prayers, I'm reminded of the blessing Invoked by R. P. upon a Y's men's meal a yeai- or two ago. He ended it with "Yours truly" instead of the conventional Amen. - -o -; .suggest that this little communication from F. E.
