Up to this time, and at this time, many a peace officer and many a court--particular in the minor Brackets--has believed that greatest popular favor is to be had through a poiicy of leniency. The peace officer has believed, with too much reason, that the surest way for him to continue himself in employment was to be extremely discreet in his choice of subjects for arrest and prosecution. The story of the courts--from local justice of peace up to district judge--has been too similar. The miserable showing of Iowa's capital city as to automobile deaths last year has been laid largely at the door of one court It can be shown, it must be shown, that the consensus in Iowa is overwhelmingly on the side of the public official who proceeds without fear or favor against those who habitually endanger all travel on our highways. Most violations of traffic rules, we are- convinced, bottom on an assumption- by the driver that he will not be penalized for his breach. It's too apparent to be missed that when the police in this or any other city "crack down" on these who disregard stop signs, there's an immediate salutary effect. Reluctantly we have come to the conclusion that education, as such, can go only so far. It can, and does, make the careful driver more careful but it is not effective against the "lunatic fringe," the 10 per cent of our drivers responsible for more than 50 per cent of our accidents. The only language understood by them is the language of compulsion. And the only ones who can talk to them are our peace officers and courts, through courageous enforcement Of the three "E's" of safety,--engineering, education and enforcement--the last is the most important factor in the safety equation. It isn't our purpose here to point a finger of criti- i cism at either peace officer or courts. They have a right in a democracy to look to the wishes of those from whom they derive whatever authority they exercise. . Our appeal, therefore, is for a public opinion wEich will not only approve rigid enforcement but insist 1 upon it.' ' A PROPHET WITH HONOR TUEWTON recently gave recognition to its foremost ^ ' citizen, F. L. Maytag, and the part his business genius and civic loyalty have had in building that community. The 1935 Rotary service award, on nomination by a dozen organizations, was presented to him at a special service in which Father T. J. McCann of Sacred Heart church, a close personal friend of the honored citizen, making the principal address, said: "The category of genius is small. But I believe Mr. Maytag belongs to the geniuses of the world. He has vision. He has goal. He is practical in seeing opportunities and in working them out ... He · has helped, to make Newton and Iowa foremost places in the United States. He has helped his community to live." Mr. Maytag replied briefly as follows: "I want you to believe me when I say I have had a real thrill out of doing the things for which you have made this award. The greatest satisfaction out of the things that I've done came to me last year when the community park and swimming pool was planned and the work- of building' started." One of the organizations in its nomination of Mr. Maytag for the award took note not only of his magnificent beneficences to the community but to an even larger and more important contribution to Newton. Here again we quote: "He has provided employment for over one- third of the city population and with wage and working conditions far above the average one will find in the state or nation." In an editorial a few months ago, this newspaper suggested that if Iowa were providing citations for its most useful citizens, Mr. Maytag would deserve first consideration. Once the state senate turned down an opportunity to turn Mr. Maytag's experience and ability to the state's good as budget director. Hia appointment was rejected. Until the - contrary is proved, however, we shall want to believe that Iowa would not, be so blind or ungrateful if the same opportunity knocked at her ·door again. The sun of the political demagog has set, we're convinced. Too often though the prophet has not been without honor save in his homeland. Newton's citation of Mr. Maytag is indeed an encouraging departure from that What would happen to the insurance company dependent upon the actuarial counsel of one naive enough to embrace Townsendism? Or maybe the question should be: What did? The business house of today has some difficulty determining just which one of the many each day ia "that common touch" to which Kipling referred. An optimist is a fellow who doesn't mmd shoveling coal into the furnace, because he figures it keeps him in trim for swatting file's next summer. The fact that we haven't heard him lately leads us to suspect that Hugh Johnson is out of the country. Political propaganda has almost attained classification in recent years as one of the "precision sciences." Best guarantee against war is that Europe doesn't have and couldn't borrow the necessary dough. There have been no reports of new dealers bowed down in grief over Governor Ritchie's death. The fearless fellow who doubts whether all change is progress invites the label of "reactionary." The PROS and CONS rule. HONEST CHANGE OF MIND \TAME-CALLING hits a new high as the national campaign gets under way. The new dealers lead, with John L. Lewis calling A] Smith a jibbering political jackanapes. Secretary Wallace, with the savage fervor of a devout fanatic, denounces the supreme court for authorizing "probably the greatest legalized steal in American history.", A solemn squabble is going on among the democrats about which is worse, to break platform promises or to change one's opinion about the new deal. In Governor Smith's speech and in Senator Robinson's reply, there is much quoting of former statements in opposition to present beliefs. It would be news if some smart politician would some time say, "Yes, I said that, and I believed it. But I have changed my rnind!" It would be still bigger news if a great public man were to come out, before anybody had time to accuse him, saying, "I no longer believe as I did some years ago about such and such a matter." THE REAL DANGER LIES ELSEWHERE Cedar Rapids Gazette: Whether or not a handful of university students who have organized a branch of the American Student Union at Iowa City has communistic leanings Is a matter of little consequence. After all. groups of this kind seldom exercise much influence "on any large body of students. If members of such groups were capable of making an impression on their fellow students they doubtless would be too busy particinating in the normal campus activities to organize political discussion groups. Such subversive political influence as can be wielded effectively in a university is likely to be -wielded by faculty members and textbook writers--men and women to whose opinions the students are exposed regularly in the classroom and whose words carry the weight of academic authority. It is in this direction that the vigilant eyes of university administrators should be turned. Under the supervision of Dr. E. A. Gilmore they will be, we are quite confident. COLONEL HAYNES REAPPOINTED Oelwein Register: The many friends of Col. Glen Haynes over the state will be glad to know that he has been reappointed warden of the Ft. Madison penitentiary for a period of four years more. This appointment is made by the board of control. Colonol Haynes is finishing his first four year term as warden and his work has been most satisfactory. It is reported that he stands well with tie officials and the convicts in his prison. While he treats the convicts with every consideration possible and deals with them kindly, at the same time he shows them that he is the boss in the institution and they respect him for it, for they realize he treats all of them alike, and plays no favorites. His military career comes in good play in this sort of a job, we imagine. * POLITICAL BONER Rockford Register: President Roosevelt certainly pulled a boner when he "fired" Major General Hagood for daring to criticize the new deal. It was just like throwing meat to hungry lions, as far as the republicans were concerned. A good many democrats, many of whom are probably up for re-election, criticize the president for this vote-losing act. TALLE CANDIDACY WELL RECEIVED . Decorah Public Opinion: The general reception through the fourth congressional district to the expressed wish of Howard and Winneshiek county republicans that Prof. Henry O. Talle, head of the economics department at Luther college, become a candidate for the republican nomination for congress, is exceptionally favorable. IOWA'S HIGHWAY^SLAUGHTER Waukou Republican and Standard: Figures show that the equivalent of a small town is wiped out in Iowa each year by highway accidents, and that a small city of people are literally knocked from productive activity in the state each year--by highway accidents. WE SHOULD ALL WALK MORE Kiester Courier: Walking is an inexpensive and healthful pastime and doctors claim it to be one of the best preventives of ill health. Most of us don't walk nearly enough. We ride, even when we have but a few blocks to go. A NEW IDEA APPARENTLY Fairmont Sentinel: A great many loudly plead that respect should be shown the office of president of the United States who never thought of it when Herttert Hoover was in the white house. DEMOCRATIC VIEWPOINT Greene Recorder: If you want to work on some real puzzles try reading a few opinions .of the high courts of the land and then see if you can guess what the next decision will be. , WILL WE REMEMBER? Sac City Sun: Next summer, when the roads are good, will we appreciate what the railroads did for us during the February blizzards? MAKING A PROPHECY COME TRUE Atlantic News-Telegraph: Mr. Farley prophesied a mudslinging campaign and then, to make sure, he started throwing it. STICKING TO ROOSEVELT Decorah Journal: We see no hopes in Iowa G. O. P. platform. We prefer to play along with Roosevelt, HOW COULD YOU, FRANK! Marshalltown Times-Republican: Can't blame the antis for making Hagood while the sun shines. IT ISN'T TIME YET Britt News-Tribune: Don't stop the winter feeding. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG COUNSELING THE G. 0. P. W ASHINGTON--There are not enough regular republican or regular democrats to elect a president. Franklin Roosevelt owed his victory to progressive republicans and independents. Some of these voters supported him because they were disgusted with the old deal, some because they believed in the new deal. They held the balance of power then, and they hold it now. To win, the republican party must get these progressive voters back. It cannot get them back by offering them in 1936 the sort of thing that drove them away in 1932. A republican congressman whom I know recently said to a friend of mine who was standing up for social security: "If that's the way you feel about it, you can't belong to my party." The republican party cannot win this election by practicing- exclusiveness. That was how it lost Pennsylvania in 1934. Neither can it win merely by abusing the new. deal. The republican party must offer a real man and a real platform. You cannot beat something with nothing. To win, the republican party must offer the reliable promise of an administration sincerely and effectively devoted to the greatest good of the greatest number, honestly bound to the welfare of the plain people, and earnestly determined to make the public good come first. You can't do that except with a candidate whose record guarantees his pledge. Sincerely yonrs. 'GIFFORD PINCHOT.

"THREE STAMPS f 4S",000/ VA.1UE DIET and HEALTH By LOGAN CLENDENtNG, M. D. PILOT MUST TAKE TESTS M ORE IMPORTANT, probably than any part of the physical equipment of the flyer, is bis mental fitness for the work. The story is told of the flyer Guynemer who, at his best, was one of the greatest pilots of the allied armies, and at this time he was dying of consumption and frequently had a hemorrhage just before taking to the air to Jjecome the terror of the enemy. Another crack Canadian pilot, named Leach, had a wooden leg. He had a crash one day and broke his wooden leg, which caused him a great deal of annoyance because, he said, if his own leg were broken he would be patched up, but he had to pay himself for his wooden leg. Experience Counts. And in the last analysis, this selection of mental fitness has to be done on the basis of experience. The psychologists can eliminate certain obviously improper subjects for avi- . Or. Clenden'mf ation, but those subtle things which make up the difference between being a very great flyer and just an average flyer are things that are beyond the scale of his capacity to measure. Glen Curtiss used to say that anybody who can ride a bicycle can fly an airplane, but he did not say how well. The quality which permits one student to make satisfactory progress is probably something possessed by both of them but in different degrees. The judgment of those widely acquainted with men is often better than any sort of pre-arranged examination. At the Battle of Waterloo, juat before the charge, the men were making fun of one who was trembling so much that he almost shook his horse. But Wellington said, "That man thinks; but he still faces the enemy. Therefore, he is the bravest man of the troop." · · « Diet for Third Week--Wednesday BREAKFAST: Two sliced peaches with milk; tablespoon of oatmeal with milk, no sugar; coffee (with not more than one lump of sugar and one teaspoon of milk). LUNCHEON: Small serving ham and egg; coffee, black. DINNER: One bowl clear soup: one serving veal; cauliflower and eggplant; one simple dessert. What is your weight today? QUESTIONS FROM READERS L. T.: "News dispatches recently told how the eldest son of King Alfonso was suffering from a tumor and could not be operated on because of hemophilia. 'A' contends that this disease was caused by intermarriage; that is, any family intermarrying for generations would inevitably suffer from hemophilia. Please give us your views on this subject.'' Answer: "A" is wrong. My views on the subject do not make any difference. It has been proved in many instances-, that intermarriage of near relatives does not result in hemophilia unless the hemophilia gene is somewhere in the chromosones. In fact, one way to prevent hemophilia would be to intermarry people who had so hemophilia gene.

OBSERVING __ rfttfi^tf^^ WISCONSIN SENIORS TAKE DOUBTFUL CODKSE /MISi see by some Wisconsin !*Egp newspapers on the Globe* ta ~*^ Gazette's exchange table that the graduating class of the University of Wisconsin i» balking at membership in the institution's Alumni association. The reason given is that the association is so much concerned with athletics that it has lost sight of the other activities of the university. Now that's a good reason, I grant, if it's the real one. But might it not be possible for the Wisconsin seniors to take their stand against this "over emphasis" on athletics more successfully inside the association than outside? As an unaffiliated body, with no voice or part in alumni activities, they are not likely to get very far. But as members they would have a voice in policy, and could persuade or force through their ideas, if they are desirable. I feel this way about bolters generally. Disapproving some plan or policy, the member of an organization straightway decides to get out. He's the loser surely for the possibility of making himself articulate in an effective way is gone. And, of course, the organization has lost a member. At Wisconsin this senior aloofness may deprive the university of an organized support it ought to have, especially when it is dragged into the political arena and kicked around, as so often happens. The recent alumni, who insist the university must be seriously considered rather than regarded as a school for football gladiators, could probably dominate the association and put their ideas into effect if they joined up. Not to do so, but to stay outside and pick flaws, is a pretty juvenile performance. CARTOONISTS HAVE TO KNOW THEIR ASTRONOMY ggk feel just a little pity for the SgSp cartoonist whose work is '--^ subjected to the critical gaze of the reading public every day. One little slip and the horde descends upon him. An example of the thing to which I refer here is contained in the following communication which appeared recently in the "Vox Pop" department of the Chicago Tribune: "Could you tell how much of a general education cartoonists are supposed to have? Or do have? (which may be different). Is it too much to expect that they should portray the crescent moon correctly? The moon is frequently used because it is an easy general indication of night, but many cartoonists do not seem to know that the position of the crescent moon in the heavens indicates tiVfime of night. They confuse the waxing moon with the waning moon, probably because they are both crescent shaped. "But it should be remembered that the horns, or cusps, of the moon al- ways point south, for astronomical reasons. Consequently a moon with its cusps on the left side is always in the west, and indicates early evening; conversely, if the cusps are on the right, the moon is in the east, and indicates early morning, some time before sunrise. (For exact time see almanac.) "Some amusing complications occur through 'this lack of information on the part of the cartoonists. As an instance in point, a year or two ago the cartoonist, in portraying the reunion of Winnie Winkle with Roy Leighton, represented them as passing the day together, and then, (according to the time indicated by the waning moon), passing the night together in the park: this could hardly have been intended by the cartoonist. "You might offer the following suggestions to those cartoonists who are unable or unwilling to inform themselves of the astronomical aspects of the moon as time-indicator. First, do not use the moon at all; second, if used, let it be the full moon, which may be seen at all hours of the night; third, if the crescent moon is used, take care that no indication of the time may be found from the context of the cartoons." Who among you, I ask, would have known which way to- tilt the moon to indicate the time of night ? --o-REASONABLE MODESTV IS STILL ADMIRABLE JJpJOy never could quite understand ^^^t,why Major Bowes encour- ^^ ages tnose on his amateur program to make braggarts of themselves. It sometimes seems that they're engaged in a boasting contest, each one trying to outdo the others in telling how good he or she is. It's no secret, of course, that all of the introductory conversation has been rehearsed and that it proceeds from manuscript. The respon, sibility, therefore, for what is said is upon the major. Just as he could eliminate the gong victims if he desired, he could convince all his performers that reasonable modesty is still an admirable attribute. BEAUTY AT SACRIFICE OF SAFETY ILL ADVISED. -_j^ hope that highway authori- §11|E ties are doubly sure before *S£^ they proceed that beautification of our highways through the planting of trees and shrubbery isn't going to entail some detractions in other ways. I have in mind the item of safety for motorists, through obscured vision or through the creation of an object to be hit in the event of leaving ;the road, . and the item of, road maintenance.^., with respect to snow accumulation or root obstruction for drainage. Beauty is an important factor to be considered in the building of our highway--but not THE most, important one. Answers to Questions By FKEUEKlc J. HASK1?)
