It is doubtful if Franklin' newspaper 'ever had the subscription that the Globe Gazette enjoys, to say nothing of the metropolitan newspapers. But his influence--well, if a publica .vv.tion had even a hundredth of the impression upor ."this "times lliat Poor Richard enjoyed, .it would fee ' i t s e l f - a very considerable figure indeed. * * * F RANKLIN was, as we alt know, primarily small-town editor. He dealt, as we all do, in the minutia o£ everyday life among his neigh bors. ~But he lived, beside, in a great world wher only the elite of the intellect could enter. And Poor Richard was a leader of that group, a group which has probably nevjer been .equalled in th United States since his day. It was a brave and daring, group, which was capable of defying thi greatest power in the world, and of sticking tenaciously to 'its lofty purpose until it was achieved In this group Ben Franklin stood out not only for his mental power, ljut for his gift of telling and homely phrase. One could -garner a vast bouquet of these flowers of Franklin's speech, but the one we love best has always been that mot, which settled a threatened split in the councils of the resolution: "Gentlemen, we must all hang together, or we shall certainly hang separately." \Ve have nol looked it up, and may have misquoted .a bit. But the idea, the arrow-flight to the point, 1 is not less than sublime. I I T WAS for these gifts that homely Ben Franklin, printer, became the idol of the gayest and most ^^__. : .;_,;,iihtelligeiit,_court_of Europe. The brilliant. French ! ' loved'him as no other foreigner who came then ; way. They hung upon his words, and made such \'. a fuss about him as was never made of another (· American abroad until Woodrow Wilson went .to ;· make a peace at Versailles. But whereas Wilson seems to have been dazzled and deflected by the : adulation, Franklin moved sedately through it all firm to his purpose, and capitalized his personality '. · · to bring back to the United States the indispen^ ,.{ sable sinews of victory--and American liberty { .

PROS and CONS IF OUR GOVERNMENT IS TO REMAIN David Lawrence in United States News: If we could get back to the fundamental idea that members of congress were again to exercise legislative powers, there probably would be found many experienced law-makers who could write legislation that would come within the established precedents of constitutional law and yet meet the objectives which in principle the executive recommends. But the theory that congress is to be the supreme body and that whatever it writes in the way of a statute must be accepted because of political' exigencies is to deny the fundamental principle of democracy as we have set it up in America with our system of careful checks and balances. Undoubtedly -the supreme court has made errors of judgment when tested by the standards of popular applause or expediency. But it is better that we should have a few mistakes by a court far removed from the passions of politics and ambition than to entrust the interpretation of the constitution to the liberals of today or the reactionaries tomorrow in a congress beset more than ever by pressure groups and owing its very election in no small part to the powerful political organizations of a streamline age. * * * * To all of which should be added the thought tliat when nine justices of the supreme court of the United States, conservatives and liberals alike, find that' a statute is badly drawn, as in the case of the NRA, it devolves upon the legislative branch of the government to do its part in making democracy successful by calling-into. action members who can write their own laws, based upon the highly instructive and familiar passages of previous decisions* of our courts.

BRANCHES .COPYRIGHT. 1937, CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION I OBSERVING SNIPED ON BY BOTH SIDES Wisconsin State Journal: As a matter of fact, politics has been involved i n , the entire career of Dr. Frank at Wisconsin, through little fault of his own. We, the people, as we have divided bur- selves in political factions, have been very largely responsible. In the beginning, Dr. Frank was .-brought here under what might be termed political auspices. He was not elected as a great university administrator. He was elected as an outstanding, and then considered, extreme liberal. About the first half of-his 10 year tenure, Dr. Frank was the victim of political sniping by Wisconsin conservatives. During the last half, he has been 1 subjected to similar political fusillades from Wisconsin liberals. Neither ·he governor nor the president could have been charged with full responsibility for either situation.

Truly a versatile and amazing figure, Ben Franklin. And with it all, the possessor of a modesty that made him keep careful books on his own conduct. We doubt if any genius before or since ever had the remarkable thought of actually setting up a moral account with himself, his virtues in one column and his shortcomings in another, and then set himself to conquer his shortcomings and extend his virtues with reckoning of progress every evening. lew of the vastly larger number of automobiles, eflects great credit on the effort of the 50 high- vay patrolmen created by the last legislature. The 50 should be increased to 150, as advocated by the Iowa State Safety council, not only because hree times as many officers would no doubt great- y reduce the accidents but would make a tragedy ike that in which Oran Pape lost his life in a gun fight with a bandit less liable to occur. COUGHS AND COLDS DIFFER H ORACE DOBELL, who -invented the Dobell's solution that a great many of us still use as a gargie or a nasal spray, wrote a book on "Winter Cough."' Although it appeared in I860, it is still up t o ' d a t e in.most aspects of its subject. He particu- larly'emphasized the different varieties of the "Com^ mon Cold," ns it is called nowadays, showing that it isn't common in the sense that everybody who says, "1 have a cold," has the same thing. It is probable that no one has more than two real colds a year, mostly not more than one a winter. The infectious nature of colds is so well established, that we must believe some immunity is established in the process of getting i^well. This immunity does not run out for about 16 weeks, which protects for one winter season. If the Dr. Clendening **rst cold °* thc season comes early in the fall, there may he a period in late winter or early spring when the defenses are down and the body is vulnerable to another at- EARLIER DAYS IN MASON CITY ·sijssir Thirty Years Agro--· Mrs. .Tack Gallagher of McGregor returned home today following a visit with relatives in the city. W I 1SE, practical, warm-hearted, and common through and through, in the best sense of th word--that was Benjamin Franklin, still the great est figure in the history of American journalism He is the very epitome of the "success story," th poor boy who made good. His life is too muc neglected. Many worse men have been held up a illustrious examples to youth, and we dare to claim that Le Bonhomme Richard stands forever with George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and mighty fey/ others, as the very prototype of all that is best in the American spirit A FIFTY-FIFTY MATTER Rolfe Arrow: The question often arises as to whether a man should become a slave to his business or profession, or to his wife. You have seen men's careers completely ruined by wives who demand attention to the detriment of a man's 'business, and you'have seen women's lives ruined by husbands who give all their attention to their business. It is in their minds to the exclusion of everything else even when at home. Therp should be and there is a halfway mark where men and women can meet and make both business and home life a success. , In analyzing a'series of cases of people who say they have "a cold," only a relative number actually have the real thing. It is probably in the majority, if we were able to take a large enough series, but ince most of the victims of the true common cold o not seek medical advice in the consulting room or clinic, they are decidedly in the minority. The true cold attacks young, vigorous people. On the first day, it begins with a rawness in the throat and fullness of the nose, little discharge, nnd a decided sense of chilliness on the surface due LO contraction of the skin blood vessels. The second day there is fever, languor, muscle aching and drowsiness. If it can be arranged to stay in bed this day, the worst will be over in another 24 hours. The next day discharge begins from nose and throat, with the invasion ot secondary germs on the nonresistant mucosa. Sequelae, in spite of the warnings about how a cold is a wicked fairy who goes Our Newspaper Ideal /·pHIS newspaper is not unmindful of the high -*- compliments paid it Sunday in connection with the formal dedication to service of KGLO. All of them xvere appreciated, but none quite so much as the statements by Governor Kraschel and Representative Biermann that the Globe-Gazette has been true to its trust and responsibility'as a dispenser of news in an impartial and'disinterested way. It happens tli"at not infrequently we have been in editorial disagreement with both of these gentle- .men. Particularly was this true when Mr. Biermann was editor of a newspaper of his own. We used to indulge in some delicious debates--warm but always friendly. All other goals are secondary with us to this uncblored and, so far as possible, complete report of the news. What we think editorially is of no great importance to anybody other than ourselves. But the assurance given by these two men in high office that we are achieving our goal of a fair presentation of the news is enormously' gratifying. If we don't fully merit it now, we hope we may some day. IT'S THF, BRACING ATMOSPHERE! L. H. Henry in Charles CJity Press: W. Earl Hall volunteers the information lliat the Mason City Globe-Gazette cannot enter into a contest with the big four of the Press, for the biggest fellow in that paper's employ is Ray Cates, "formerly of Charles City and Marble Rock. He thinks we must feed 'em on some special brand of corn, but such is not -the case. It is the pure and bracing atmosphere that tells the story. Just read our weather reports. AN OLD TAX THEORY IGNORED Iowa Falls Citizen: /The age-old theory of taxes is that they should be based on ability to pay. A homestead exemption tax would transfer a large part of Iowa's tax load from the shoulders of those able to meet it to those least able to assume the added burden. AND WE WEflE TRYING TO FORGET'THIS! Rockford Register: By the way, tins anyont| heard of what became of the late lamented Literary Digest? EDITOR'S MAIL BAG through the keyhole and opens up |the door ot the castle to the giant, arc so infrequent as to be nonexistent: A true cold docs not run into pneumonia, nor cause chronic sinus disease, nor infect the middle car. Here is where the true cold differs from those other imitators which are so frequently called colds. "I have a cold all winter, every winter." When you hear that you can be pretty certain that is not a true cold. Chronic infections of the nose and--or the sinuses, with chronic thickening of the nasal mucous membrane. Chronic weakness of the lungs with bronchitis, and foci of infection ,in the bronchial ends, loss of elasticity of the lung tissue and asthma--these are the conditions \yhich Horace Dobell found to' constitute most of his patients with "winter cough." It takes time to develop these conditions, so the patients in this group are more mature than the vigorous young people who "catch cold." The onset is not so stormy, and the attack may drag out indefinitely, only to be succeeded by another similar nature. Complications are not unlikely. As time goes on the recurring colds exert an effect on the whole constitution with shortness of breath, etc. In treating these conditions, general measures arc more important than specific, or local treatments. If possible, the ideal thing is to get away to a warm c l i m n l c for the winter. The best investment a v i c t i m . o f winter cough can make is a trailer. But climate change or not, early to bed, banking the fires and staying indoors in raw weather, pay dividends. The Congregational church members voted at their annual meeting last night to begin the movement for an institutional church, to revise the constitution and by-laws, and heard reports from various departments of the chrurch. : Samuel Sloan of Charles City was in the city today on business.

Ten Years Ago-Threatening the entire business section during the early morning hours, a fire ot unknown origin destroyed the Central Trust building, third largest office building in Mason City, at the corner of First street southwest and South Federal, and damaged a large number of the surrounding structures in one of the most destructive and spectacular blazes in the history, of the city. Starting from the Central Trust building, which was turned into About a Man Who Reduced Ton Fast talked one day recently with a North Iowa proies- sional man whom I have known for nearly twenty years. I knew him as a heavy set man, a fact taken into account in the bestowal of his college nickname. Then four or five years ago, he look a notion to go lithesome on us. And he did, to the extent of 65 pounds lost in less than a year. When I saw him the other day I commented on the fact that he had gained back considerable of his old weight. a "Yeah," he replied, n "and I'm enjoying life again too." The rest of the story is that my friend paid a penalty for his over- drastic reducing program. It mnde him sore of joint and muscle, something akin to arthritis, I take it. And he paid in the development of some bad teeth. "Never again," he says. What has happened in the case of this friend is very much in line with the opinion I'm seeing expressed these days by authoritative writers in the field of health The fad for reducing has' pretty much gone with the wind, if you'l excuse the expression,' and I art confident that it's a break for good health. --o-Dangerous Crossing Almost Got Another fiSgftn understand that protectin.

There's a veiled suggestion of that, at any rate, in an ordinance recently passed by the common council.

Two or more trailers parked on a private lot are also declared to be a nuisance. Parking of trailers for more than an hour on the streets of Palm Beach is also made an offense.

L ONG AGO I used to have a favorite dream . . . Well, I wouldn't exactly call it a "favorite." Perhaps it should merely be called a frequent :nm. I'd find myself in my great uncle's high basement, where they kept the jams, preserves and stove wood. All around the sides of the room,, one-foot long pieces oC nak were piled high . . . And suddenly I'd find myself there in the active company of a' big while billygnnt with n Inng beard . . . The goat did not like me. As long as 1 knew that dream billygoal, he never once gave me a kind look. As soon as he saw me he would start butting around. He'd chase me around anrt knock me down and dare me to get up, and when I did, he'd knock me down again, and I suppose I bellowed and bellowed, but I don't remember that part . . . And the end of the rumpus always came when those big piles of oak wood and jam fell over on top of us--and I'd wake up, hoping it was the last time 1 ever had that dream. Can you explain that nightmare? . . .' I can't. It couldn't have come from any secret sorrows or frustrations that a small boy had. The only grief I had at the time was ingrained envy of the kid on the next block, Lloyd Locke, who skooted along the sidewalk on two-wheeled skates while we had to do with four-wheeled ones . . . Later on I was shy with girls, and could not wink, or whistle through my teeth. But at the time I had no such troubles, and my only similar experience was that humiliating occasion when a flock of geese hissed me into a mud puddle as I was wearing my new sailor suit. Since then I've had a few troubles and some worries but never any billygoat nightmares to disturb my slumbers and I've just about decided that (he psychoanalysts are all wrong when they an- nlyzc our drcnms to decide w h n t secret anxieties are ours . . . Because when I had no troubles, a billygoat' used to butt me around a basement; and now that I have the normal number of cares mine is dreamless sleep . , .
