DANGEROUS DES MOINES I OWA'S record of slaughter on the highways is one to make any normal Hawkeye hang his head in shame. The state's increase of motoring deaths since 1926 is about the worst to be found in the United States ani! Des Moines, our capital city, is possessed of a fatal, accident record which gives it a doubtful distinction among American cities. First, let's look at the state picture. In 1926, the highway death toll stood at 312. It remained almost stationary in 1927, with a total of 315 killings. Then paving on a wholesale scale made its appearance, with the result reflected in these yearly death totals: 1928, 385 deaths; 1929, 455 deaths; 1930, 645 deaths (the peak); 1931; 582 deaths; 1932, 530 deaths; 1933, 546 deaths. Obviously we're getting nowhere fast; we're speeding merrily to death and destruction on our highways with no thought save getting there in a hurry and maintaining- our right of way. Now turn to Des Moines, with 29 deaths in 1930; 29 in 1931, 31 in 1932 and 34 in 1933. Last year Des Moines had a death rate of 23.0 per 100,000 population whereas other cities in its population group (100,000 to 250,000) had an average rate of only 15.2. Out of 37 cities reporting to the National Safety council, only 3 had as bad a record. For 1932, Des Moines had a death rate of 21.2 per 100,000, compared with an average for its population group of 14.9 and it ranked thirty-fourth among 38 cities of its size. Compared to Des Moines' rate of 23.0 last year, Grand Rapids, Mich., had a rate of 5.1, El Paso, Texas, 8.3, Fort Wayne, Ind., 11.3, Wichita, Kans'., 13.0, Duluth, Minn., 16.6, and Omaha, 17.6. The remainder of the state is scarcely in a position to point a finger of scorn at Des Moines, in view of its own embarrassing record. But Des Moines could well give attention to the reckless way of its denizens. With only about a fifteenth of-the state's population, the 15 per cent of the state's total accidents, (highway and otherwise) 11 per cent of the total injured and 10 per cent of the total killed, in all types of accident, charged against the capital city in the 1933 figures ought to challenge some serious consid- "eration on the part of the Des Moines officials,' newspapers and citizens. But there is no evidence that the problem is being considered as anything more than a thing to be lamented, locally--and hushed up. WELL TIMED WARNINGS T ADY ASTOR, conservative member of parliament, Â·^ and Stanley Baldwin, prominent English statesman, are issuing warnings'against a fascist movement in England. Speaking to the students of King's college, London, Lady Astor said that a parliamentary form of government was the greatest bulwark of liberty that, any country can possess. She declared there was not much choice between fascism and communism as both proposed autocracies. She said that the freedom of the individual was threatened .and that liberty would go to. the background, if the young people of England accepted either the red shirt or the black shirt theories. Mr. Baldwin talking over the radio in a broadcast to the British schools said: "If. the people of this country become adherents of either communism or fascism in great numbers, there can only be one end--civil war. The whole tendency of dictatorship is to squeeze out competent independent men and create a hierarchy used to obey. When the original dictator goes, chaos often results." Both Lady Astor and Mr. Baldwin spoke well timed arguments against absolutism in government. The United States and England are still democracies. The hope is no efforts will be able to acquire strength that attempt to change their governments to either a fascist or a. communist absolutism. MOVEMENT FOR HAJMMILL Northwood Anchor: That numerous individuals, including leading farmers of Iowa, are urging Mr. Hammill to again become a republican candidate for governor indicates a significant trend of thought.

CINCH AND NO CINCH Humboldt Republican: If Way is again at the helm it is a cinch that Turner will win the republican nomination, but it is not a cinch that he will win the election FOR JAKE NELSON Decorah Public Opinion: The announcement of his canlidacy for lieutenant governor of Iowa will meet the'approval of evervbody in this section of the state where he is known for ability and progressiveness. DON'T LET YOUR MOUTH WATER New Hampton Tribune: Do not expect the liquor stores too soon. This is a big business and must be carefully handled. It's a temperance act to aid in law and order. PITY POOR DAN Allison Tribune: It is hoped Dan will realize some returns from sealed up corn or his corn-hog contracts so that he can provide himself some clothes such as other farmers wear. WHO FOR INSTANCE? Elkader Register: There are a number of good republicans, any one of whom we could enthusiastically support if we had the opportunity (for governor). STILL A POPULAR PRESDBENT Clarion Monitor: If popularity in the eyes of the people counts anything. President Roosevelt's remarkable progress will continue through tbe corning year. THE LIQUOR CONTROL ISSUE Nora Springs Advertiser: It has been a contest j between private ownership and state stores allowed to sell liquor in packages and not ty the drink. NEARLY FED UP ON RELIEF Boone News-Republican: Before much longer taxpayers will stop asking for relief, because they will already be relieved of everything they have. A NATION THAT PAYS THE BILLS Manly Signal: The United States and Finland have signed a treaty of friendship. Finland is the kind of friend that pays you what he owes you.

Palmer of West Union, for repre- aentative in congress, has really taken root. It has "struck fire" in a big way, to change the metapho: ibit In the beginning of the campaign, there was a dis position on the part of a few to dismiss Mr. Palme' as a "mere service man's candidate." This tendencj is rapidly vanishing--and for the very good reason that it is not grounded on fact. While he has made no apology for having worn th uniform, it is to Mr. Palmer's credit that he ha. claimed no superior consideration by virtue of his wa service. By the same token, it is gratifying to hi friends to note how widely his appeal and his avai" ability entirely independent of his record in 1917 an 1618 are being recognized. It can be said that evenJMs early in the rac the West Union man has revealed the ability an size that fourth district republicans have a right t expect of their candidate for congress.

One day while he was dispatching a story under difficult conditions and in skeleton form, he concluded with the words, "Up Close," to indicate his proximity to the fighting. The cable editor for the Times in New York interpreted it as a new "nom de plume" and from that day to this he has been known as Upton Close.

It can easily be felt at the wrist with a little practice, and should be going at about a rate of 72 a minute. With a person unconscious or semi-conscious the rate of the pulse is a yery valuable sign of the seriousness of the condition ' If markedly off normal, either rapid above 100, or slow below 50, it indicates a serious condition. One is able to differentiate hysteria and faking from the real thing in this way. _ The little finger represents the temperature. This may be determined in a rough way simply by feeling the patient, and is also a good indication of the seriousness of the condition. Cold, clammy skin or dry, hot skin indicates that there is organic trouble present.

TODAY IN HISTORY ONCE OVERS don't mind admitting that a newspaper picture such as "Hi Nellie" is refreshing to newspaperman who has been forced to hang his head in shame at the ordinary portrayal of a reporter as something lower than a snake and a publisher as something- more vile than an underworld denizen. Here was a good story--a bit strained in spots, but a good story none the less.

FOR THAT "RAINY DAY" j Because you have never been able to make a large sum of money at one time, you have never given any serious attention to accumulating a bank account. The idea of depositing a small sum each week and not disturbing it throughout the year does not appeal to you as a saving method. Isn't it true that you have not wanted to adopt a plan which might make it necessary for you to deprive yourself of something in order to keep up the payments with regularity? You want to feel free to spend according to the limits of your earnings. And yet you complain that you have never had a bank deposit large enough to tide you over some un- forseen demand. When such a drain has come, you have had to go m debt, facing a struggle to meet your obligations. Of course there is worry and often discouragement. *our present state of despondency may be the result of not having made any preparation for unexpected expenses.
