FEBRUARY 18 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE 13 NEWS AND VIEWS. OF INTEREST TO FARMERS BETTER ROADS BETTER FARMING EDITED BY ARTHUR PICKFORD BETTER SOCIAL LIFE BETTER' SCHOOLS U, S, D, A, WARNS AGAINST "CURES" : Influenza Preparations to Be Acted Against by Officials. "Any manufacturer who attempts to cash in on the public's fear of influenza by selling preparations represented by label or by circular accompanying the package as preventives or treatments for flu, la grippe, pneumonia, and related diseases, renders his product liable to seizure and himself to prosecution under the food and drugs act," W. G. Campbell, chief of food and drug administration, U. S. department of agriculture, said today, "The Federal Food and Drug administration intends to take immediate action against any such manufacturer." Altho the variety of products advertised as having curative or preventive value for these diseases is large, says Mr. Campbell, there is no medical authority to indicate that aspirin, nasal sprays, throat gargles, cod liver oil, disinfectants, anodyne pills, tablets, or powders, milk of magnesia, and similar preparations, or fruits or other food pro- ducts, have any power to check the course of any one of these maladies. According to medical authorititV, there is no known drugr or combination of drugs, nor any food, which will prevent or cure influenza. This statement, he says, reflects worldwide medical experience and is generally accepted as a fact. Under these circumstances, the labeling- of any preparation as a treatment for flu, grippe, or pneumonia can only ibe regarded as misbranding within the meaning of the food and drugs act, subjecting the products to seizure and the manufacturer to prosecution.

MILLWSALE BRINGS $7,500 Span of Mules and Harness Sells for $398; Team for $361. The prices bid at farm auctions are the surest indicaters of the local worth of farm products;. This account of a large sale is taken from the Britt Tribune. The largest farm sale from point of attendance ever held in Hancock county was that at the Mark F. Miller place three miles south of Britt last Thursday. And from point of money received it ranks high for recent years, with only a few sales during the high times running over the amount received. This sale brot Mr. Miller over §7,500. A crowd estimated at 2,000 was in attend ance. An effort was made to count the automobiles that lined the roadside for a half mile on either side of the Miller farmstead and covered all available space in the barnyards and adjacent fields. Team Gncr. to Clarion. Some idea of the extent of territory from which men were drawn can be had when it is known that a team of horses went to. a man south of Clear Lake, another team :o a man south of Clarion, two mules and a horse to Forest City, three mules to Buffalo Center a pony to Titonka, a team of horses south of Duncan and a team to Crystal Lake. And speaking of horses and mules, I'-team of mules with harness sold for 5398, and a second matched mu!e team, with harness, went at ?349. A nice grey team with harness sold it $361.50, a second grey team at J26T, a roan team with harness at $265 and a young team of sorrel lolts (without harness) at $250. A flock of 62 sheep brot $542.50 an average of $8.75 a head, and went five and ten to a batch. 11 Forty head of yearling Hereford steers brot 52,460, twenty of them selling to John Meindcrs at $64 each and 20 head to Laurice Larson at ?59 tach. The machinery and tools sold well. BillH Towns.

Thompson Courier, Titonka Topic Wesley News-World, Algona Advance, Corwith Hustler, Kanawha Reporter and Clarion Monitor to advertise the sale, and never has the power of advertising been more apparent nor a sale been better advertised. Cols. H. H. Brummund, of Kanawha, nnd L. A; Matern, of Algona, cried the gale, .and both were kep' busy from 1 o'clock until half past four. Brooks' lunch wagon was out to the farm and did a thriving lunch business. Indeed, co many in attendance, the aspect was one of a state fair rather than a farm auction sale. niSPEL THAT RASH Why suffer when skin troubles yield fed easily to tic healing touch of in a Day TAKE NO CHANCES stop COLDS HILL'S 4-in-l WAY Dangerous to let a COLD hang on.

PARKER SPEAKS ON WASHINGTON Divinely Called to Assume Leadership of Colonies, Lions Are Told. George Washington in directing the destinies of the colonies in the Revolutionary war and in his leadership after the country attained independence was answering the call of Divine Providence. Such was the view expressed by the Rev. George G. Parker of the Central Lutheran church in an address before the Lions club Wednesday noon at the Hanford. "I thoroly believe," said Mr. Parker, "that the great leaders of all times, and at present, are God- sent. Whenever and wherever there lave been menacing crises, there has been an inspired personage to direct the efforts toward solution." Man of Wealth Needed. Briefly the speaker sketched the life of Washington, pointing to his religious-minded parents and to the worshipful nature of Washington himself, asserted thru his reliance on prayer, his faithful observance of the Sabbath and .his punctilious honesty. Whereas in other crises, Mr. Parker observed, the call has been for leaders from a lowly station in life, such as Lincoln, the particular need of the Revolutionary period was for a man of wealth--and an unselfish willingness to use it for his country. "If the country had been willing to abide by the counsel contained in Washington's farewel! address,' the pastor asserted, "there would have been no Civil war. His views on a strong central government anc the necessity for peaceful relations between the states were incapable of misinterpretation." Applied Later Too. Admonitions contained in that same address would have had pro Stable application at the time of the World war too, the speaker added In this connection, reference wns made to President Wilson's jaunt to Europe and his participation in the councils of kings and other royalty, in contravention of Washington's warning against "entangling alliances." Bringing the lesson of Washington to present-day life, Mr. Parker admonished hia hearers to recognize their civic and religious duties toward community and church. The mere giving of money is not sufficient; active participation is an essential, it was contended. Acting in the absence of President G. E. Cress, now in California at the bedside of his aged mother Vice President J. L. Pauley invitee the Rev. Mr.' Parker to return to the club and discuss conditions in Li beria, where Mr. Parker has served as a missionary. D. K. Lundber] introduced the speaker. Ragamuffins Please. The Ragamuffins, a group o dancers from Lincoln school, unde the direction of Miss Jean Marsh art teacher, provided a much appre ciated dance. Members of the group were Mildred Van Every, Dorothj Price, Arlene Zirvel, Cleo Bain, Dlx ie Ward and LeRoy Anderson, th last-named doing a blackjfaced sol number. Miss Eunice Anderson was at the piano. Guests of the club included W. R Nolan of Minneapolis, I. J. Plain ondon of Dubuque and B. L.
