The whole subject of popular government is brought up for review. A principal, mark o£ the American system of government has been the specific defining by constitution of the three .branches of government. Esch was explicitly endowed with certain powers and to the states was reserved all powers not expressly granted to the central government. In the past four years there has been an un- ·precedented leadership of congress by the chief executive. He refers to it as teamwork; others call it surrender by congress of its traditional place in the governmental picture. However it be appraised, the fact clearly is that congress has been and is going to be pliant to the president's will. Now fident the judicial branch is admonished to join this mer- ately. ger in the name of liberalism and progress. Those who question Mr. Roosevelt's sincerity were in a sad minority at the last fair test on the question. Nor is it effectual to quarrel with his demand for modernizing the federal system to meet ·changes in the economic system. By the same token sincerity should be conceded to those who insist on a retention of the general frame of constitutional freedom, a tiling they believe can be done without permitting government to become out-of- compr date, stagnant and helpless. . state. Government must govern or give way to some other government that will. The break-down o£ · parliamentary systems that get entangled in their own confusion and partisanship is the seed of revolution and dictatorship. It has happened repeat' edly in Europe where peoples have given up their deciding voice in government after government because the system failed to function, and turned to dictators who, though hating democracies, at any rate would act and get things done. It is for Americans to measure our situation and decide as best they can whether we have reached this position, and if so whether Mr. Roosevelt's call upon the supreme court to destroy its' own (·functions is the proper remedy. The president ^has posed the issue, and the next move is clearly · up to the supreme court. Mr. Roosevelt has reject- id~fhe" alternative of" a constitutional amendment by which the powers he believes the federal government needs could be granted by the states to the executive and legislative branches--to . presi- farms of theit dent and congress. He has decided upon a short- other surplus? cut, by means of supreme court obedience. If he does not achieve it--what then? Mr. Roosevelt does not say. Perhaps he has not decided upon, a course. But if' the supreme court does not yield obedience, he will have but ^^ ^ two courses open, short of surrender of his own the - r stu£1 _ policies: first, the use of his executive power to enforce laws over the constitutional ban of the court; second, proposal of the amendments necessary to permit his policies full function. It should be noted that while he has not proposed an amendment, he has not definitely said he would not. , A Ban on Alien Marriages A LMOST from the beginning of the .American consular service, marriage between our government's representatives and the citizens of the country in which they are stationed has been a problem. And a real problem it is too for the reason that such marriages invite, if indeed they do not compel, a didided loyalty on the part of these consular employes who should be 100 per cent loyal to the United States In the current issue of the United States News, a column of comment from the" newspapers of America on the recent ban on such marriages declared by the diplomatic service is reproduced. All of the papers quoted from were in sympathy with the prohibition. Some came through with the suggestion that the scale of pay should be raised sufficiently to permit any consular worker to take an American wife with him to his post. "The only alternative," suggests the Minneapolis Tribune, "would be to insist,that every American in the diplomatic service be at that rate unyielding strong-willed type o£ male who does exactly as he pleases, quite regardless of his wife's suggestions. But alas, the best diplomats--the most accomplished peace-keepers--are invariably husbands of the other sort." · · . · Now that the election and the serious issues raised during the campaign are well past, newspapers have space to give to questions no more far-reaching in their effect than the one here considered. You explain--we can't--why it is that our sob- sisters of both sexes nave so much more concern for the killer than for the family of the person who got killed. . _______ The monument Iowa house republicans might build for their confrere, Albert Bellman of Hospers, would look strangely like a tombstone. The Methodist church is the only organization in America that has sponsored more Boy Scout troops than the American Legion. , Some will say that it was just a case of Wisconsin not being big enough for two ambitious men. Some brides cry to get things out o£ their systems; others to get things out of their husbands. AH eyes are on Nebraska's new, streamlined, one-house, all-male legislature. Young Feller, you'd better be good! Referring to Bob, of course. Where are the liberals of yesteryear? Ask Glenn Frank. PROS and CONS WORTH 20 MINUTES W. G. Williams in Garner Leader: What on the surface seems a foolliardy program being conducted at the present time by the state highway commission proves, on investigation, to be a conscientious and purposeful survey. We admit frankly that when we were first accosted by a polite young man who explained that he was working for the state commission doing survey work we had misgivings that his time, and ours, was about to be wasted. When he asked if we drove to work, if we attended football games, went often to Clear Lake or Mason City, took motor trips for summer vacations and then asked us to tell what roads and streets we used and approximately how many miles we traveled each year, we were .'still rather confident that we had sized up the situation accur- ly- Results that are being tabulated from the survey show that the program is a conscientious one. The purpose, we have learned, is to determine directly from automobile owners the relative amounts o£ service rendered by those stale highways comprising the federal aid system, by all other slate highways and by local roads and streets; it is also the purpose to indicate the relative use of these facilities by Iowa residents. The information so gathered will be used in a comprehensive highway planning program for the ' te. So if you are accosted by one of Ihese young men, don't think that he has an amazing curiosity about your personal affairs. He's only trying to help you remember your trips- And by giving him 20 minutes of your time you may be insuring that roads you like to use will be best maintained in years to come. PASSING THOUGHT Two Rivers, Wis., Reporter: When the president attacked the- practice of tenant-farming in his congressional address, he must have caused many thoughtful men to think back of that picture and realize that the reason for most of the tenancy distress is the new deal's reduction of the cotton crop. That threw 'millions of share-croppers--tenant farmers--out o£ work, and gave the country the problem which the president asks congress to solve. The cotton curtailment program was entered upon to absorb a surplus, really at the expense of'the tenants. Now the president proposes to spend a lot of tax money to put the tenants on mortgaged farms of their own--and so, perhaps, build up an- er surplus? Admittedly, tenancy is a bad thing. But it is the way most farm youngsters, without means, get their start, and it is not always a service to .hem to put them on a farm, heavily in debt to the government or anybody else, before they have earned the farming business and proved they know oF MALABAR c I K D 1 A , SHOOT" FISH Wrfrl CROSSBOWS COPIED FROM - BY OBSERVING ^ I'HE.

I suspect, however, that my course would be pretty much what that of other parents has been. Thoughts o£ the return of my loved one would transcend all else. Every time I think of this, I recall the legislation once proposed to make the payment of a ransom a serious offense in the eyes of the law. Parents complying with kidnapers' demands would be imprisoned under the proposal. The theory was that this would be a warning to kidnapers that no financial gain could possibly come front the activity. Thus the usual incentive for child-snatching would be eliminated. Only thing wrong with this is that the Jaw would never be enforced. Public sentiment would not stand for · heaping further pain on the parents of a kidnapec child. --o-Snow Clearance Here Best, Says Traveler E*^ talked the other day with DIET and HEALTH By LOGAN CLENDENING.

EDITOR'S MAIL BAG A Business Pioneer Passes M ASON CITY has been saddened this week by the passing of one of its most loved and revered business pioneers. Charles W. Damon came to Mason City near the turn of the century. He not only saw but was an important part of Mason City's evolution from just another little county, seat town to the flourishing business and industrial center of today. · ·In business he, was known as a squareshooter. In civic affairs he was guided by the rule of supporting that which he believed to be for the good of Mason City. In his individual capacity he was a good neighbor and a true friend. The decision to perpetuate his name in the business house he had helped establish and develop was a genuine testimonial to the fine reputation he bore. His passing is another impressive manifestation of the march of time. On the fingers of one hand one could count the men still. doing "business at the old stand whose period of activity coincided with or exceeded that of CharJie Damon. He lived in an interesting and important era; his was an uncommonly fruitful life. It's a choice recommencJaUon for O. J. Ditto that his neighbors of northwest Iowa seem unani;- mous in their desire for his reappointment'as state commission chairman. : THE FORMER KING AND MRS. SIMPSON By an English born resident of Mason City) 1 MASON CITY--I take tin's opportunity, having been asked several times, to express my views on the most discussed incident in a decade, namely the abdication of the former King Edward the VIII of England and his contemplated marriage with Mrs. Wally Simpson. While there are some persons who look upon this incident as a diplomatic gesture, I firmly believe that Mr. and Mrs. Wally Simpson and the former King Edward ot England came to a perfect understanding on the common laws of nature and I rather think the former King Edward believed he had found the one woman of his choice. Personally I admire him for his courage and self, sacrifice. He laid his cards fairly and squarely on the table, and the Americans believe in the pursuit oj happiness. By abdicating the English throne, the former King Edward of England made it possible for the new King George VI, his brother, to ascend the English throne and to reign over all English subjects and all of her dominions. The former King Edward VIII in his own words remarked, "My brother will make a better king than I." Open confession is good for the soul. I sincerely hope the former King Edward VIII of England and Mrs. Wally Simpson will be very happy and that the incident, sooner or later, will be like a closed book with history witten on every page. She, Mrs. Wally Simpson, an American, he the former King Edward VIII, an Englishman. And while discussing the relationship between these two notables, I pray there may never be a broken link in the chain of friendship which now exists between these two great English speaking nations. America, like the Statue ol Liberty, stands out as a beacon light, directing, guiding and pointing the way to a true world democracy. And while I have more than a spark o£ love for the land of my birth, I thank God for America. And I shall strive at all times to be a true and loyal American citizen. JOHN A. MILLS, I can confirm the observation out of my own experience, and yet I still stand in astonishment before it. First, I am astonished at its idiity. Why shouldn't it happen all the time? Here are people who come to a doctor with grievous and intricate things the matter with them. It takes the doctor some time to discover them all: He uses the resources of centuries o£ scientific discovery to do so. Then he outlines the most successful methods of righting the matter: Only it must be continued for a long time. Qr. Clendenini All this costs money. The patient pays his hard earned money, tries the diet or reg- mcn for a while, feels better, feels well enough not o be worried any more, and drops it. I suppose it s mman nature. Our fellow creatures can be screwed up to follow a plan of treatment for a while.. They" will submit to nearly anything. so it's ovei soon and promises immediate relief--a surgical operation, X-ray treatment, some dental work, two weeks of hot baths at the springs, a course of injections in the veins--but for the long pull, they stay on the diet, or whatever it is, until they fee some improvement, and then they want to forge the doctor and the treatment. Just as astonishing is our astonishment at a diet works i£ it is persisted in long enough. A doctors, we are often just as skeptical as the lay man about the value oE continuing on a diet. Tha is because we have so seldom had an opportumt ot seeing it given a chance. We so seldom see any one who follows it out over the length of time re quired. , Sometimes you find wisdom and strength o character in the most unexpected places. Thc au thor o£ "The Art of Treatment/' tells the story of a Negro with diabetes who had become sugar- free on a diet, and his doctor wanted to increase his starch allowance. The patient said, "No, sir, boss, I'd rather eat what I'm eatin' now. I felt so feeble and po'ly when I eaten biscuits and hominy, I'd rather eat what I'm eatin' now." I wish I could get all the diabetic patients I know to understand that point of view. A sweet dessert may tempt them, and they do not seem to realize that it docs them no good at all: It goes right through and is never used in nutrition. They would starve to death on it because the body cannot use it. When patients "give down" to the treatment Thirty Years Ago-W. L. Jones returned today from a visit with relatives at Eldora.

No justice, sez I. --o--peed Chief Factor t Highway Killings draw on an address made ^ by L. St Clair, director ""of the accident prevention onference recently sponsored by he department of commerce in Vashington, for the following lant on the mounting death toll nationally if not ,in Iowa) on treets and highways: 'Deaths can be decreased if the nation will face the facts about H major accident causes and ndopt and enforce remedial measures regardless o£ selfish protests. "One o£ the most important death causes generally ignored lubticlj', but recognized by all in- :oi-med persons, is the temptation .o speed, under dangerous conditions,'held out to drivers. They are supplied with cars capable of making 100 miles an hour, given lights unsafe at more than 40 miles, permitted in many states to run vehicles that have not k r? i ,[§. jf* I Jeen inspected, and then urged to drive safely. Of course smash-ups and deaths follow. "They will continue to increase until more protection is given the careless driver against himself. The temptation to press the accelerator down to the floor rr.gardless o£ inadequate lights, bad roads, and strong laws, or anything else is too great for most drivers to resist, especially in rural sections after dark. And it is there and then that the most horrible accidents are occurring." The conference, formed by Secretary Roper at the request of President Roosevelt, now has set up contacts in all states, and will work for improved legislation with safety groups in all legislatures which will meet during 1937. Based on suggestions received, St. Clair recommended, among other things, that maximum speeds be definitely reduced to 50 miles an hour, by. governors or other mechanical devices, if necessary.
