Newspapers have m probably been guilty more often than any other fl class of letting their judgments and their de- Id sires become confused in the past four lean Kyears but at this time, the claim of "better ^ times" will not be disputed by many persons, ij openly or in their own thinking. ', For Iowa there has been two particularly bright spots in the Roosevelt program. One is the com loan feature which has brought nearly twenty million dollars into the state. The other is the CWA which has served to take up most '' Of the unemployment slack remaining -after NRA and other attacks on this problem had been p u t into effect. , . - , . . Temporarily discouraging it is that what amounts to a pegged price for corn has not been reflected in corresponding prices for livestock, butter and other farm products. Comfort is to be drawn from the fact, however, that this deficiency has the active attention of the federal authorities, from President Roosevelt down. One of conservative tendency cannot hut think in terms of ultimate payment for all that is being done by way of buying recovery. The answer to " contains much of logic- is that winning a war is a primary consideration, paying the cost of it is important but secondary. · Clearly America's economic machine has been stopped on dead center. We have been hogged down with fear and discouragement. President Roosevelt is making a valiant effort to turn on the steam essential for the long uphill pull.

The general council of Switzerland has decided to spend $25,000,000 distributed over a period o£ years for the modernizing of its army. Airplanes, tanks, motorized artillery and light and heavy machine guns are to be added to the equipment. Switzerland is fortunate that being an inland country it has no navy to upbuild. Its army, however, composed of citizens although small -in comparison with those of the major nations, is one of the best trained in Europe. Each year 25,000 recruits are given intensive military training. Now they are to be armed with the latest death dealing weapons. Europe must learn that the military spirit that several of the nations are now showing is not a reflection of the views of most of their people. News of a reduction of armaments rather than an increase in the military burden would be welcomed by the rank and file of most of the nations. They do not approve, even if they do not publicly express themselves to the contrary, of the military ambitions of their governments. _ An Iowa columnist confesses that the 50 notes he scribbled down the previous night prove -worthless when examined under the sun.

Ostensibly, it is au attempt lo recodify the laws of advertising relating to drugs, foods and medicine, but its scope is far wider than that. In our judgment, it is a sincere effort, but it has been compiled by theorists who apparently have BO understanding of the real purport of their measure. The Tugwell. bill would establish a supervision of advertising with powers so broad as' to be virtually a dictatorship. In tho hands of people who knew no more of adertising than do its authors, It could be made tyrannical. Offhand, it is hardly too much to ay that the chances are that it would destroy the great bulk of legitimate advertising through the an- ilication of technicalities and an attempt at a theoretical administration of a thing that must be practical if it shall survive. While all must confess weaknesses in the present aw which the Tugwell bill attempts to perfect, it is lard to conceive that the Roosevelt administration, in 10 midst of a tremendous and expensive effort to revive business, would put in the hands of any individual the power to destroy the most stimulating influence ever exerted upon business and its activities. The details are unimportant. The power conferred is especially deadly because o£ Us broad scope, its lack of definition; The advertising czar who would be created under (t would be clothed with power so almost unlimited by the-terms pE. the. bill that he might destroy the very things which ;the Roosevelt administration, calls "national recovery." . : · · - . - . . ! . . No publisher ia iri sympathy with-the advertisinj of inferior or dangerous products; Ninety per. cent o tho advert!sera are as much concerned as is Mr. Tug well 'with the development or clean and fair adyer tising. But no group of men in any line of legitimate business should, be subjected to even the possibility oC a destructive government Influence. That is not democracy, nor is it sound economics. ; Wo hope the president of the United Stales will ake "time out" to consider this extraordinary "play." Tho "game" of recovery is being played for stakes so great that the American people dare not hazard the lossible tyranny of a whimsical dictatorship. HAS HEADS AND TAILS York Sim: All. things considered, it appears that Mr. Utvinoff, as Mr. Duranty says.-In the Tlnies, is' taking home the turkey. What Russia wanted was recognition, for recognition;means better opportunity to acquire in America the machinery.and other goods that the soviet need's in its attempt to industrialize Russiai That Russia has no money to pay is well understood. That it will expect credit ia taken for grant- 'ed. That the Roosevelt administration will lend itself to this is'obvious. Once.Russia has bought from us on credit it will make the natural plea that it can pay only in kind. It will offer oil, of which we have an embarrassing surplus; or wheat, of which we have more than we can eat or export; or lumber, of wlilch this continent has plenty. Possibly the American appetite for caviar could be enlarged to the extent of balancing trade. Congress has nothing to say about recognition; that is entirely an executive function. But congress cart and should prevent tho use of the government's money--the taxpayers' money---to aid in the advance- DAILY SCRAP BOOK Copyright. 1933. by Central Press AnoelHlon.

FRED WHITE'S REWARD Lincoln,. Nebr.v Star: Fred White has given the state of Iowa as fine a highways system as may be found any place in the United States. His reward has been :an appearance' before a committee representing the Iowa legislature to defend himself and the state highway commission,- of which he Is chief engineer, against charges of misconduct. . The state of Iowa has spent great sums in build-I ing:roads. It has gone into debt heavily for that purpose. It. did It deliberately after.full consideration, in ' response to popular sentiment. It has the roads. They have been built efficiently, economically and mag-' nificently, and now-they must be paid for. But any one who knows llr. White knows that he has looked after his Job, knows that he is a man of the highest integrity, even i£ a bit arbitrary in the· handling of his work. The Iowa legislature is displaying ingratitude towards a fine public servant.
