MARCH 12 mm 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SEVEN ELECTIVE DRILL MOTION IS LOST Biermann Opposed Required Military Training at Grant Colleges. By RUBY A. BLACK Globe-Gazette Washington Bureau WASHINGTON--An attempt by Representative Fred Biermann, democrat, Decorah, Iowa, to make military training at land grant colleges elective rather than compulsory was defeated in the house when his amendment for this purpose was rejected 15 to 31. During the discussion on the war department appropriation bill Mr. Biermann rose and proposed an amendment to the measure which would make military training in non-military colleges elective according to the will of the students. There is no one in the house who would seriously propose that we should vote to make military training- in the United State compulsory on all young- men between the ages of 18 and 20 years," Biermann told the house. Quotes Supreme Court. "The supreme court of the United States, in a case that went up from the University of Wisconsin, decided that the (land grant) colleges can make the military course elective." Biermann was opposed by Representative Wadsworth (R., N. Y.) and after some debate on the "Prussianizing" of American colleges Biermann's amendment was lost. During the debate, Representative Biermann said: "I do not think there is anyone here who would seriously contend that military training is an essential of a higher education. A student has his choice among several languages and sciences. My amendment is to give him a choice as to whether or not he will take military training. No Physical Benefit. "There is no one who contends seriously that the amount of military training that is given at a university is of any value physically. I do not think there is anyone here who would contend that there is much military value to it. I took a year and a half of military training in the university and got absolutely no physical benefit out of it and when I entered an officers' training camp in 1917, I did not carry with me one single, solitary thing of benefit from it." Representative Wadsworth stated, "I do not question for o n e moment the purity of motive of the gentleman from Iowa in offering and espousing this amendment, but I.detect in it that initial step which has been attempted so many times , .during the last 10 years- toward i'lpreakmg down "the whole :'Reserve : ; Officers' training corps system, to ·'be'followed later on by the break. down of the reserve system." Scientist Comments Upon Birth of Child With Two Inch Tail LONDON, March 12.

NOREM Globe-Gazette City Editor The other day I dropped in to see a friend of mine who operates a retail store. The store sells among other things considerable quantities of tea. I found the proprietor looking over a number of samples of tea, shipped to Mason City in large quantity boxes from jobbers in St. Louis and Chicago. As I interrupted him he was looking over 8. number of samples of tea. He was Intent on a minute examination of these s a m- ples, pinching them in his fingers, rubbing, smelling and otherwise attempting to determine their quality. Too Difficult. "There's some mighty fine stuff in that collection," he said. "One of the samples in particular is exceptionally high grade. See if you can tell me which it is." Of course I knew nothing about teas but his challenge piqued my curiosity and after looking 'em all over I selected a bright green sample that certainly was the prettiest tea in the lot to my eye no matter what other qualifications it might have for the blue ribbon. My friend laughed in amusement and said, "You've selected the cheapest, poorest tea in the lot." Then he Indicated the choice specimen and to me it looked quite ordinary. "There is only one way to tell good tea and that is in the cup," he said. The same is true about coffee. There is no way of determining the quality by looking at it. Another Example. Which is just another example of the fact that most of us are lamentably ignorant when it comes to judging quality in any line of merchandise. Yet it's important that we learn as much about quality as we can since we are our own purchasing agents and can get a lot more for our money once we learn to discriminate. One of the most common errors of the buying tpublic is to buy entirely on appearance and price--two very misleading and undependable guides, as this experience with tea shows. By far the better way is to ask the merchant to explain to us just what the difference is between his lower priced merchandise and his better brands. Then we can judge which best serves our purpose and makes a wise decision. Most times it pays to pay a little more and get the goods which will last longer and serve best. and Swaney for a one year term. The law creating the commission was passed by the present session. Cram, editor and publisher of the Davenport Democrat, is known as the "flying editor of Iowa." He also is a registered pilot.
