That the lectures, addresses, sermons--whatever they are--const! ·tute an affront to the thousands of different religious : viewpoints is the claim made by the radio authorities. The complaint went to the federal radio commis- ,sion and the commission in its reply disavowed any direct jurisdiction over the matter in question. The organization, however, came back with the claim that the commission, by indirect methods, through questionnaires, had injected its influence into the situation. Strange as it may seem, we are in sympathy with the individual radio stations which decline to make their facilities available for that which is distasteful to a considerable part of its public. Newspapers regard this as an "inalienable right." One wishes he could be sure that the radio stations are doing it voluntarily rather than from fear or dictation. Perhaps the most interesting thing in this whole dispute is tucked away in this little paragraph out of the radio commission's letter defending- its course: "Under Section 29 of the radio act, the commission is forbidden to censor programs. It is only when stations have applications for renewal of their licenses pending or when other applicants apply for facilities used by existing stations that the commission, in the public interest, convenience or necessity is permitted to judge the nature and character of the programs broadcast by stations in order to pass upon the question of public interest." While there are restrictions which prevent immediate action against a radio station, the commission clearly can determine the fate of any station over a period of years. So long as this is so, the radio will continue to be an instrument of power for the party in power. There 'are reasons for believing that the public has "; recognized rather clearly that the power to license j newspapers/sought Jy some-.of. President Roosevelt's "· underlings would nave led to ; exactly the place it has led to in, tie case of the radio. Witli freedom of the press no longer existent, America's traditional freedom of speech would be leaning on a broken reed. SPARE THAT TREE! mHE Clinton Herald in an editorial recently directed attention to a problem which should have the most earnest consideration of all who believe that this generation has some fixed responsibilities and obligations to the generations which are to come. The editorial was headed "The Denuding of Iowa" and follows in its entirety: "During the last three winters of economic difficulties lowans have turned back to the fuel of their grandfathers and the toll has been great in the woodlots. "Everywhere one looks in the rural areas the handiwork of the axeman is visible. The noble monarchs of the forest have been toppled and even 'the tree on the lone prairie' has been chopped into firewood. "It perhaps is somewhat paradoxical that in obtaining fuel with which to make life more pleasant during the cold months, the action serves to detract from the pleasures and beauty of spring, summer and fall. "The economic side of the denuding of Iowa is not to be c-verlooked. Countless hillsides have been left bare and open to the onslaughts of wind and rain which already hava devastated by erosion thousands of acres of Iowa land _ and made them worthless for generations to come oven though efforts were begun today to restore them to their pristine glory. "Iowa cannot afford to have more of its streams glutted with silt washed from unprotected hillsides. Iowa cannot afford to further strip its acres of trees so that melting snows and pouring 'summer showers turn streams into angry torrents venting their fury for brief hours and then subside to dry washes. "Iowa needs trees to prevent the state from turning into a vast desert-like area. Iowa needs trees to help retain surface moisture. Iowa needs trees to shelter beneficial wild life. Iowa needs trees for beauty's sake if for no other. "la less than 100 years two-thirds of Iowa's six million acres of woodlands has disappeared. "At the present rate Iowa will become treeless before living generations die. "Then Iowa will be akin to China, famine swept because the crop producing soil has been swept into the rivers." SHADOW-BOXING AGAIN TTEARST'S Chicago papers are now engaging in a nauseating little exhibition of shadow-boxing. On the news pages, reporters are presenting what purports to be a sensational expose of conditions under Chicago's open saloon. This paragraph is taken from one of the stories: "Discovered during a fortnight's survey of the city's unregulated saloons were orgies which rivalled the debauches of Paris' notorious Latin quarter. They differed from the dissolute pleasure life of Paris in this regard--the scene was YOUR neighborhood, and the participants in these drunken revels were YOUR children." In the same issue literally page after page is given over to whisky advertising. The naive conclusion Is reached by the Hearst writers that what is happening in Chicago is 0 due to Mayor Kelly and his mode of saloon regulation. But the fact of the matter is that the whole iniquity grows from, and is inherent in, the product whose praises are sung in the advertising section of Mr. Hearst's newspapers, to his large financial gain. Pertinent or Impertinent It's a short jump from the story that we ought to kill off the American sugar industry because Cuba can produce" sugar cheaper to the story that we ought to kill off the corn industry because Argentina can produce corn cheaper, or that we should get our butter from Denmark because the Danes can produce it cheaper. s e t The Minnesota representative who called Lindbergh a "whippersnapper" had a like but lower estimate of a Washington taxi driver the other day. He'll tell his story to the judge, as he did once prior to going to Leavenworth for sending obscene literature through, the mails. And he thinks he ought to be U. S. senator! 'it V V If it hadn't been Dan Turner himself talking at Clarion the other night, you'd have thought the man he assailed was Dan Turner. He scored those who are seeking to divide and disorganize the republican party. Who besides Mr. Turner is doing that? M * * * When there's a will, there's a way and when there isn't there's a family row. OTHER EDITORS PRESIDENTIAL BIGNESS "PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S recommendation that *· airmail flying be returned to private concerns reflects an essential bigness of character. One of smaller mental stature would not have thus admitted that the army plan has proved impracticable. Nobody will object to having the cancelled contracts reviewed and the bidding reopened if after a fair trial it is revealed that unfair methods were employed in obtaining preference for the assignment. The whole trouble, of course, grows from the fact that there was a summary cancellation without permitting the accused companies to be heard. This is a fundamental right in the American system of justice. Its abridgement has constituted an open affront to the country Neither the methods nor the results obtained from following the counsel of a postmaster general trained in dealing with prizefighters have added luster or prestige to the Roosevelt administration. The one redeeming feature of the situation is the president's frank recognition of the error and his forthright endeavor to make amends. KNUTSON -ANNOUNCES FOR GOVEKNOK Marshalltown Times-Republican: Clarence Knutson of Clear Lake announces candidacy for nomination for governor in the republican primary. This brings three prominent candidates before the primary, admitting th*; the Short candidacy is of minor prominence. Mr. Knutson has been prominent in the legislature as a member of the three latest assemblies, has been prominent in Clear Lake and Cerrd Gordo county as a leading merchant and a force in local and district politics. He will have a considerable personal following in that section of the state and is likely to gain support through his fraternity connections with the Masonic. Knights of Pythias and Rotary organization. Knutson bases his candidacy largely on his advocacy of the gross income tax and his opposition to the sales tax. Just what effect on what candidacies Knutson's entry will have remains to develop. As between Turner and Colflesh the effect will be divided. As to Short his cand:daey would appear to have least effect on the vote Short may receive. It is not altogether unlikely that the entry of Knutson so multiplying the candidacies will result in new announcements. In a multitude of candidacies lies opportunity for the nomination of a minority candidate. REPEAL PROVES A MISNOMER Kewanec, m , Star-Courier: "Repeal the eighteenth amendment and do away with hypocrisy." "Drive the bootlegger out of business in favor of the legitimate dealer." How well the American public remembers these pleas which more than anything else turned the tide of opinion in favor of repeal. But what has happened? Only last week Major W. L. Ray, alcoholic beverage administrator of the department of justice was quoted, "The drinking public still calls up the bootlegger from whom it can get fair quality liquor at one-third the liquor store prices." Last week-end, the Kewanee police department apprehended two cars well equipped for alcohol running and apparently in use these days of nonprohibitiou. It is common gossip in this city that one place sells many gallons of the former illicit spirits each week. The bootlegger gone? Far form it. End hypocrisy? That's another mirage which was pursued by the repeal zealots. If liquor is legal today why all the quibbling about bars, about horizontal or vertical drinking, about the legal status of the word 'saloon?" Probably repeal is just a minomer after all. FOR A NEW PARTY ALIGNMENT Muscatine Journal: A Washington publisher recently called for the formation of a new political party in the United States, with opposition to the general trend of the "new deal'' as its main platform plank. Such a party, he says, might be called the constitution democratic party, and would replace the existing G, O. P. The present democratic party he would rename "the socialist democratic party." The reshuffling he advocates thus would give us two brand-new national parties to take the place of the ones we have. CITY MANAGER PLAN LIKED Webster City Freeman-Journal: Dubuque, like Webster City, seems to like the city manager plan of government and at the special election a few days ago the voters of Dubuque decided by a vote of 8,895 to 5,906 to keep the plan. The old time ward politicians and officeholders do not like the manager form of government, but in a very large majority of cities where tried the people seem to like it. THE JOB'S ONLY BEGUN Estherville News: Both the democrats and republicans are off the track in arguing whether or not the work done in the past year to bring about national economic recovery is all good or all bad. The job is but partly done. The administration continues to want rope and more of it and there isn't much else to do but allow it and hope for the best.

CLEAR LAKE, March 8.---I was interested in reading an article in your "Eye Observing" column on how the radio has drawn upon the daily newspapers for its news broadcasts and the steps they are taking to combat it. Better go a little careful. That was one of the things rural people enjoy, and the newspaper was generally advertised along with the broadcast. What the rural people want is a daily paper they can subscribe' for that is broadminded enough (even if they are controlled by the republican party) to cease finding fault and picking up every little point where they can criticize our democratic administration. The news reviews put on by raflio broadcasters in general have been giving us the news in a patriotic way, and have so helped our government in its recovery program. Yours respectfully, MRS. C. J.

VARYING AMOUNTS OF ALCOHOL T O THE QUESTION of whether alcohol is a food or a drug, it must be answered that it is both. We discussed its fuel value and action as a food yesterday. As a drug it, like most drugs, must be classified in a different way at different times of its action, and with different amounts taken. Most drugs stimulate first, depress and narcotize second, and become poisonous last. So it is with alcohol. The stage between stimulation and depression, however, is very short. The stage between the time when it is a depressant and when it is poisonous is, however, likely to be considerable, because the body destroys it so rapidly. With persistent drinking, however, the concentration of alcohol in the blood may reach such a point that danger of death is very imminent. It is a statement of a health commissioner EARLIER DAYS An Interesting Dully Feature Drawn From tll« Globe-Gazelle'* Kllo-i «f tin, Venrs Gono By. Dr. Clendeninx in one of the larger cities, that during prohibition, although there was much talk of death from poisonous ingredients in bootleg liquor, all the deaths of this kind which were carefully examined were due to alcohol itself, and not to poisonous ingredients. A scale of toxic symptoms of acute alcohol poisoning is given in Dr. Haven Emerson's book, printed for the use of education in schools: Alcohol In the Blood Subjective States and Observable Changes in Behavior Mgs. under Conditions of Heavy Social Drinking per CC. .10 Clearing of the head. .20 Sense of warmth and general physical well- being.

W.; "Some time ago you described a new treatment for baldness by the use of pituitary gland extract I would be very glad if you would let me know whether that has been successful or not." Answer: According to all the people I know who have tried it, it has not. I know one gentleman who took 72 treatments and did not manage to grow a single hair. ONCE OVERS By J. J. MUJfDV BE YOUR AGE As an old fellow ,you may feel somewhat flattered if invited by younger men to accompany them on their trips to the big jrames and other attractions. In order to show you are a "good sport" you are likely to go beyond the bounds of propriety and justice to yourself. Young fellows are conceded certain liberties in which you as an older or middle-aged man should not indulge. And should the younger men invite you to do things that you know you should not do, they won't respect you if you accept their invitations. They have a certain degree of respect for you that causes them to surround you with certain ideals. It should not be difficult for you to courteously refuse a request to go beyond the limits your age and position set for you. You will not lose prestige with the younger fellows (if they are the right sort), if you decline to accept suggestions which they know you should not accept. Even if they lose interest in you because you refuse to cast aside the principles that you know a-s an older man you should preserve, they will honor you for it and you will have their respect, if not their society. Thirty Years Ago-A. M. Graves of this city was in Chicago this week attending to business matters. Supervisor Crossley returned Friday from a trip to Stevens county, Minn. Auditor S. M.

Edgar Hoover, head of the investigation division of the U. S. department ot justice, as "kidnaper alley." Mr. Hoover attributes the prevalence of this type of crime in the middle west to the failure of states and cities to organize and equip their law enforcement agencies in a manner to combat the criminals. He spoke in an interview of "sheriffs with rickety automobiles, of government sub-divisions employing to combat practiced criminals only men that low salaries attract, of enforcement officials with antiquated guns and other equipment attempting to cope with high-powered cars and the machine guns of kidnapers and bank robbers." It's a notable fact that Wisconsin Twenty years Ago-Mrs. Lillian Larson returned to her home In Des Moines after a week's visit in the city, the guest of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rice, P. J.

Mr. and Mrs. Roy F. O'Donnell and family will leave Wednesday for Colo, where they are to return to the boyhood farm of Mr. O'Donnell. COLISEUM, Des Moines--The republican convention named the following delegates-at-large to the national convention this morning: Senator A. B. Cummings, B. B. Burnquist, Addison M.

I'm giving: all of them, as a matter of stimulating further thoughts on the subject. This is from Frank H.

And this from Mrs. Vern Lose*of Dougherty: "My answer to your riddle which appears in the March 7 edition, clipped from the New York Times, is 'An Old Shoe.' Hoping you arc the same?"

In some cases, of course, it is possible to pass this along to the "consumer" hut for the most part, I understand, it has been absorbed by the dentist himself.

Every one of them stands as an invitation to fatal accident. In combination with blinding light or loose gravel in the approach, they're death itself in the form of a concrete slab. Perhaps a few of these should be preserved-off the main highway and in a frame if possible--as a monument to the short-sightedness of the boards of supervisors who thought they were economizing by skimping on bridge width.
