W I THE KNUTSON CANDIDACY 7 ITH the entry of Clarence A. Knutson into the republican gubernatorial contest, the Globe-Gazette will be called upon, in journalistic fairness, to define its attitude toward both Mr. Knutson and Robert W^ Colflesh, former Mason City boy, to whom we are bound by previous commitment. Some of our friends already have suggested that we are placed in an embarrassing position. We, however, do not so regard it. From the standpoint of presenting the news developed by Mr. Knutson and Mr. Colflesh--or Dan Turner for that matter--the Globe-Gazette is going to strive to live up to its newspaper obligation and responsibility. This calls for an impartial and disinterested, news handling. Our editorial prayer, and what limited editorial influence we have, will be on 4 the side of Bob Colflesh. We regard him as the one Iowa republican most likely to win not only next June but next November; we look upon him as the one lowan best qualified to give Iowa an able and enlightened administration from the state house in the two or four years just ahead. * » * W E ARE going to be FOR Mr. Colflesh without equivocation. That does not mean, however, that we are going to be AGAINST Clarence Knutson. And nobody understands that more completely than Mr. Knutson. Our position toward him is arrived at in fullest friendship, respect and admiration. As a member of the legislature and in his business and civic life, the Clear Lake merchant has displayed a distinguished ability. He has had our active support and blessing on every occasion in the past when he came before the voters. And, without reservation, we give it as our judgment at this time that he would make a good governor for Iowa. Mr. Knutson comes into this campaign as the spokesman for an idea, the gross income tax, more graphically referred to as the dollar turnover tax. His friends purpose to have in every county, and in every senatorial district where there is a contest, a candi- i dj.te committed to the gross income tax. Their pro- · gram presupposes an ability to write the republican party platform around the dollar turnover. tax. In allot .this, there is an admirable recognition by Mr. Knutson and his counselors that the governor by the very nature of his office is restricted in his power to revolutionize the tax machinery. A sympathetic legislature is the prime essential. In short, electing a governor is only part of an enormously ambitious program which must be brought into being in a few short months. In the light of the visible evidence, it's our doubt that this gigantic task can be accomplished--and our fear that a result exactly opposite from the one desired by Mr. Knutson and his supporters will be had. * * * * /·VUR high estimate of Mr. Knutson leads us to be** lieve that his primary if not his only consideration is of the gross income tax idea to which he has given so much of time and effort in the past two or three years. The governorship, high office though it be, is but a means to a more important end. · Undoubtedly the Clear Lake man has thought the thing through , to its logical conclusion. But it still seems to us that the cause for which he speaks would have stood to advance faster and further if, in whole or in substantial part, it could have been included in the platform of a candidate who is not basing his campaign on a single idea and a single appeal. Opinion divides as to whether the Knutson candidacy will ciraw more heavily from Colflesh than from Turner. Our own conclusion, reluctantly arrived at, is that Mr. Colflesh will be the more adversely affected for the reason that Mr. Turner is definitely aligned ajainst the gross income tax. This, of course, remains to be seen. The-one thing thst's certain is that Mr. Knutson will be a vigorous and effective campaigner. Thousands of lowans, for whon up to this time the gross income tax has been a far evay .theory, will be brought into intimate ac- quaintmce with it in, the months ahead. An excellent referedum on the question will be provided. Perhaps the stes warrant the hazard. That too remains to be seen. STHKES MEAN RECOVERY QTRIKE; are popping right and left. The country is *^ dotted vith centers of labor trouble. A consoling thought is hat these strikes in the past have been a sign of reoyery. There is no use striking when it is plain to eveuone that there is no business and no jobs, and that indstry simply cannot support increases in wages. Strike do not come in bad times; they come as the nation egins to pull out of the mire. Yet there -as never a strike that could not have been settled btore it began by a-reasonable attitude on both sides, .very strike ends, eventually, in some sort of comprorise. Rough justice is usually done, at the end--but a terrible cost in money, lost production, comraufiy suffering--and too often in life and property. Th^trike is a war--and like a!! war it is the poorest posble means of settling a problem. The nation is tdeavoring to set up a system of labor adjustment Men shall obviate the strike by providing a fair cort in which both sides of labor disputes may seek jitice. The system is as yet in its infancy. It is a systo which deserves the support of all thinking people, nether they wear overalls or silk hats. This period is one iest and tension on the new system. The new goveriient labor board has its hands Pertinent or Impertinent DAILY SCRAP BOOK If Fred Biermann would push the universal draft measure with the same vigor that he opposes the president's national defense program, he might accomplish something constructive for the cause of peace. * * * Man biting the dog is one example of news. Mrs. Gifford Pinchot not seeking the spotlight would be another, the more remarkable because there have been cases of man biting a dog. * * o If you had made a complete fizzle of the governorship, wouldn't you also drum up a story about Wall street or the hob-goblins elsewhere? Don't be too severe with Dan. * * * 1 A Turner supporter cites the cow war as one of Dan's major triumphs.

OTHER EDITORS WHO ARE THE AtJSTRIANS? Fort Dodge Messenger: What is an Austrian? Americans 'inclined to facetious retaliation might ask that question. For decades of the United States' early existence, the rest of the world sought to classify citizens of'the melting 1 pot nation. The Austrian republic was formed in 1918 out of the chief German speaking · elements of Austria-Hungary, freeing eight groups of national factions from the bonds which had restrained them. These eight groups were formed into six different nations. The northern Slavs formed the republic Czecbo Slovakia; the southern Slavs united into the kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes; while the Magyars adopted a separate national program and the Rumanians became a part of greater Rumania. Galicia was included in Poland. In addition to these racial groups there was a block of Italians in western Galicia, about 4,000,000 Ruthen- ians in eastern Galicia, and a large number of Mo- hammedans, many of Slavic origin, in the provinces of Bosnia and Hercegovinia. No wonder Austria has been called the "polyglot" nation. The reader of the daily stories of Austria's struggle for existence can spend his spare time try-' ing to figure out just what is an Austrian. POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS Detroit News: Under the Civil Works administration the government has been making a house to house survey in 300 counties scattered over the country to find out what the farming population needs. Reports as yet are incomplete, but they indicate that a return of prosperity to the rural districts will bring with it a demand for a tremendous lot of the ordinary necessities. . A sample report js submitted in a bulletin of the department of agriculture tabulating results of inquiries made at 1,825 farm homes in one western county. It indicated that more than half of the houses need painting-, a quarter o_f them need new roofs, nearly half should have their chimneys rebuilt, and in the list of complete replacements needed are floors, doors and windows, screens, ceilings and pumps. The list of ordinary comforts and conveniences desired includes nearly all of the requirements of a decent standard of living. FUTILE SESSION Eagle Grove Eagle: The legislature was called in special session to provide for taxation relief, and for the emergency of prohibition repeal. To this date it has been in session 14 weeks at a .cost of $2,500 a day and has done neither. From the nature of the taxation measures it has been considering, and the appropriation of funds it is making, the taxpayers would have been far better off had this session not been held. DAN MUFFED HIS CHANCE Cedar Eapids Gazette: Mr. Turner had his chance to purge the party when he was governor. He started out to do so, lost his nerve, made some of the worsl decisions and appointments on record. A fine fellow personally, Dan Turner lacks the punch and fortitude to fulfill his promises. Once enthusiastic about him, this column suffered bitter disillusionment. AN INDUSTRY AND ALBERT LEA Albert Lea Tribune: Does the Wilson Packing company mean anything to Albert Lea and community? In January 1926 this local concern employed 468 people. In January 1929 it was employing 601 persons and this year there are 790 employed. Think it over and judge for yourself. COLFLESH LIKENED TO KENDALL Sibley Gazette-Tribune: Colflesh is recognized as the type of ex-Go'v. Nate E. Kendall whose administration was one of the most successful In the history of Iowa. He is a splendid orator, independent in thought and aggressive in the promotion of his honest convictions. POLITICAL LABELS INCONCLUSIVE Council Bluffs Nonpareil: If President Roosevelt is a democrat then Carter Glass is something else. If Smith Brookhart is a republican then Herbert Hoover is something else. The political label a citizen wears in this country is no certain indication of what is in his mind. NOTE TO DAN TURNER Primghar Bell: The republican party of Iowa as yet has shown no real indication that it wants to elect a governor in place of Clyde Herring. A party divided into factions can not. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG A PHASE OF THE NEW DEAL MASON CITY, March 6.--Perhaps I am just plain dumb, but certainly I fail to grasp the workings of the new deal. A few days ago the president asked industry to lower working- hours and to increase pay. A bulletin effective this morning--the government suspended all vacations and gave civil service workers approximately 5 per cent more reduction in pay. As for me, I am an extra worker at the postofflce. This order reduced my income to practically zero. How can I favor any deal that is not for all? As for my part it appears I am being dealt from the bottom of the deck. I am, of dire necessity, obliged to look for work on the side that I may buy food. When a man is on the payroll of the government--have been all told nine years--and cannot hope for ?1 a day, it seems we need another deal and from a deck where the high cards are not all for a few.

BOOK TELLS ABOUT EFFECT OF ALCOHOL A LL but two of the states--Arizona and Wyoming-have laws requiring the teaching of the effects of alcohol and other narcotics upon the human system in all schools supported wholly or in part by public funds. In order to supply teachers with information to carry out this instruction, Dr. Haven Emerson of New York has published a little book called "Alcohol--Its Effects on Man." The book starts out with a definition of alcohol, the ingredient of all intoxicating beverages being ethyl alcohol. All the alcohols are poisonous, but.-aome to smaller degrees than others. Ethyl alcohol is probably the least poisonous of the entire series, although there is some question about that. Alcohol in minute amounts is said to occur as the result of bacterial changes in the carbohydrate foods in the body. Very delicate nr. Clendenlne tests of the brain substance of healthy persons who have not used alcohol and have been killed suddenly by accident, have shown that alcohol is present. The amount is approximately .OOOi per cent in the brain, .0025 per cent in the liver, and .004 per cent in the blood. Is alcohol a food? To the extent that it may serve as fuel to the body, it is. It is not a food in the sense that it can be stored and used afterwards, but it can be used immediately as a fuel food for the production of energy, heat and work of the body. It is hot, however, either a necessary or an economical food. According to the well known physiologist, E. H. Starling, "alcohol is not a good food for muscular work, and if taken this should be at such time and in such doses that it will have undergone practically complete oxidation before the time arrives for muscular exercise." EARLIER DAYS An liitciestln; Dully Feature Bmwn From lUo filobc-Ua*eltc Flics of tho Years Gone By. QUESTIONS FROM READERS J. E. S.: "I would like to ask an important question. Do all goiters have 'to be removed, and what other treatment do you advise?" Answer: This is an extremely complicated question. If by "goiter" one means an enlargement of the thyroid gland, it is certainly not true that all goiters appear in young persons simply from living in a country with iodine-poor soil and water, and frequently in girls at the beginning of womanhood the gland enlarges. This is entirely normal and certainly should not be an indication for removal. The preventive treatment of the simple goiter is to add a very small amount of iodine, in the form of sodium iodide, to the diet. The amount is so small that it need only be given twice a year--three grains daily for 10'consecutive days, in the spring and fall. There are so many other forms of goiter and they are so. complicated, that dogmatic advice about whether they should be removed or not is impossible, and'the decision should be left to a competent physician. ONCE OVERS By J. 3, MCNDY HIGH HAT What is your attitude after many years of separation, toward an old friend who has not progressed as far or as fast as you have? Do you keep in the background the desire you may have to inform him of the advancement you have made? Do you make an effort to meet him on the same friendly ground which you and he occupied to common when last you met? Do you show any interest in his affairs and encourage him to tell you his problems in which you might be able to assist him? Do you display a patronizing air toward him ? Your real friends, the ones who liked you when you had little, are usually glad to note or hear about your successes. But it hurts them when they observe an indication on your part that they have lost their old place in your estimation because of the difference in your financial or social standings. They resent the implication that they are lacking in the essentials to elevate themselves to your position. They don't like a braggadocia spirit, such as you exhibit. And you might be such a comfort to your old friend by merely being a good, true human being. (Copyright, 1931. Klne Features Syndicate. Inc.) .Thirty Years Ago-W. F. Miller has accepted a position as bookkeeper with the Letts, Spencer, Smith company. C. L. Smith is visiting friends in North English for a few days. The Rev. John Weineke arrived in the city Friday afternoon from the east and will begin his duties at once as assistant to Dean Calohan in the city parish. Friday there were held throughout the county the preliminary examinations among the pupils of the rural schools for county diplomas. The southwestern section of the teachers' association was held in Rockwell Saturday. C. W. Young, who has been in the city for a few days on business, has returned to his home in Swale- dale. Many of the schools of the country have already closed for the spring vacation. was interested in this table of five essentials for wifely success presented in an article written by Mrs. F. D. Roosevelt I'or a current magazine: 1. To be able to really love someone else more than yourself. 2. Loyally. 3. Unselfishness. 4. Tact. 5. s»lf control. "I think," to quote, "you can count your marriage a success if you get through the stages of readjustment, the first steps from romance to companionship, with your mutual love unimpaired. Then comes a per| iod where- life is usually shared as i the children grow older and have a j life of their own, to a dual family | relationship. These periods cover the j big adjustments of married life. The result will be sympathetic understanding between the man and woman if they will allow each other to develop without hampering, criticism and irritation. "You may count your marriage a success as far as your husband is concerned, if you feel that you are useful to .him in whatever is the most engrossing interest oC his life. He may as life goes on have many other helpers besides his wife, particularly if his interests are varied end broad; but in the last analysis if be" counts on his wife as one of the essential contributors to his success, then you have succeeded in establishing a real companionship." ·--o-- chanced the other day upon the story back of Minnesota's nickname, "gopher state." At. least three oKier names had been tried out prior to its first use in a cartoon. These were "Woodpeckers," "Lcatherheads" and Beavers." It was in 1857 that a bill designed to give financial aid to railroad companies badly crippled by the panic was introduced in the Minnesota legislature. "The bill," to draw on the account presented by the Minnesota Historical society, "provided for the issuance by the state of bonds to the amount of $5,000,000 to aid in the construction of railroads in Minnesota. The measure was bitterly opposed and, in order to bring the subject into ridicule, its opponents published a cartoon depicting a trainload of legislators being drawn toward the 'Slough of Despond' by nine gophers, representing Minnesotans. "Despite opposition, the bill was passed, and the cartoon, published just at a time when a nickname for the state was under consideration, permanently fastened upon Minnesota the name 'Gopher State.' " Twenty Years Ago-C. E. Raggugher of Rudd was in the city on business Tuesday. Dr. Sanders of Northwood was in the city on professional business. Miss Minnie Bumgardner of Chicago is in the city, the guest of friends and relatives. G. N. Clark left today for Parkersburg where he will attend to business matteers. Mrs. Al Kirby left Thursday morning for New Hampton where she will visit until Saturday. L. Hezzlewood, the well known sportsman of Iowa Falls, was in the city yesterday attending a meeting of the Cerro Gordo county gun club. J. E. Van Note returned yesterday from Chicago where he had taken a car of cattle. William Colby returned yesterday from a business trip to Minneapolis. Ten Years Ago-Fred Thomas, scout executive, will speak before the Kiwanis club at Waukon Monday. George Harrer of the Jacob E. Decker and Sons packing plant returned Saturday from Duluth, Minn., where he visited branch offices of the company there. Mrs. L. V. Stevenson of Rockwell is visiting at the home of Mrs. J. T.

Salesmen and agents of the Standard Oil eonipany of Indiana, who have territory adjacent to Mason City, met today in the Hanford hotel for an all day session, broken only by luncheon. The Rev. Oliver L. N. Wigdahl, pastor of Trinity Lutheran church of Mason City, was one of the speakers at the dedication of a renovated church building as a new home for the parishioners of Trinity American church at Waterloo Sunday. M. S. Steece has filed his application as a candidate for the school board. TODAY IN HISTORY 1765--A bill was enacted by parliament for "raising of a revenue for defraying the expenses of defending, protecting and securing his Majesty's dominions in America." It required that upon every sheet of paper used in any proceeding in a court of laws, wills, marriage licenses, deeds, notes, bonds, contracts, leases and legal documents of every sort, and game- cards, dice, advertisements, calendars and almanacs, a stamp duty of from 3 pence to 2 pounds should be paid. This was the iniquitous stamp tax which profited Britain a few thousand dollars, cost her in the end her American colonies. It was repealed the following March, but the damage could not be undone, for in the meantime the 13 colonies had formed their first congress, talked of union and liberty. 1844--John Charles Fremont, 31, reached Sutler's fort, California, completing the exploration of an overland roule from the Missouri river to Ihe Pacific. On succeeding trips he was to win the title of "The Pathfinder" from graleful travelers, seize California for the nation, become its leading citizen. 1855--Niagara river at the falls was crossed for the first time as a single span suspension bridge, 820 feet long, was completed and opened. 1862--The Confederate "Virginia," once known as Merrimac, a new type of ship, iron-clad and invulnerable to ordinary cannonfire, a makeshift contrived out of a half-burned and sunken hulk, destroyed the wooden frigates "Cumberland" and "Congress" in Hampton Roads, proved the day of wooden fighting ships was over. * o c Notables Born This Date--Oliver Wendell Holmes, b. 1841, retired associate justice, U.

Should anyone doubt the following, I wish to say that outlaws hold one innocent until proved guilty. On that basis I will venture the following: "I think it was in 1812 (I was only a boy) that my father borrowed a large iron kettle, commonly used in those early days an a feed cooker and to heat water to ecalil butchering hogs. When the job was finished on this one occasion, the kellle was loaded on to a wagon to which a team was hitched. Falher inslruclcd me and my brolher lo return it. "On our way, we were obliged to pass through a large marsh. In the midst of it, all of a sudden, an avalanche of mosquitoes descended upon us. Their onslaught was fierce. In our desperalion, seeking lo protect ourselves against the vicious atlack, we managed to gel under Ihe iron kellle. "To our dismay, however, this did not deter the mosquitoes in their determination to carry out their blood-thirsly attack. As we were speculating on our next move, we could hear a continuous clatter. Presently we saw one beak-like blood-extractor penetrale our kellle covering. "It happened that we had a hammer with us so we began to use it for clinching the proboscises as they penetraled the iron. After continuing this activily for some lime, behold, to our amazement, away went kettle, mosquitoes and all. We were saved. And, making it the more remarkable, it was 20 below zero, not a very good mosquito day." --o-haven't much confidence in that measure designed to protect lowans from a futh- er exploitation of the Drake estalc swindle. The folks who are dumb enough to go on "investing" in this proved graft will be found purchasing the statue of liberty or the'city- hall if they're cut off from this Drake estate opportunity. The old saw about "the fool and his money" can't be repealed by legislation, 1 fear. --o-was astounded to learn the other day that the inmates in American jails, reformatories and penitentiaries lolal 400,000.
