Some of these editorial pacifists write almost as if they were still trying to get out of going to that last war. An Iowa Safety Program yyvIlE Iowa Stale Safety council's advisory commit- ·*· lee consisting of some sixty or seventy members representing the 31 county .units of the council thus far formed and a considerable part of the 50 statewide organizations joined in this safety movement, met not long ago and formulated this set of legislative recommendations lo lay before the current general assembly. 1. Increase the Iowa highway safety patrol to not less than 150 men, 50 to be selected and placed in training at once and SO to be trained, ready to take the road, June 1, 1938. 2. Increase patrol salaries as follows; Chief, $300; assistant chiefs, S200; patrolmen $125 base with increase of ?5 a year until m a x i m u m of $150 is reached; provide supervisory officers on same salary basis as patrolmen, 3. Increase driver's license Cee to $L for two years to pay additional patrol. . 4. Require dimming oi headlighls when approaching another vehicle. i. Repair defective lights immediately and furnish proof of repair to motor vehicle department within 48 hours. 6. Define "adequate'* brakes. 7. Repeal conflicting penalty for driving while intoxicated. 8. Provide j a i l sentence and fine for driving while license suspended or revoked. !). Provide learner's permit for beginners. 10. Require record oC suspension or revocation to be sent to driver's license division of the motor vehicle department. 11. Require uniform, distinctive marking for school buses. 12. Increase minimum age limit for driver's license to 16 years. 13. Limit permits to school children from 14 to l(i years of age for driving to and from school. 14. Set maximum speed .limit o f ' 5 5 miles an hour on open highways. 15. Empower cities to establish speed limits above present slate limits within corporate limits, not to exceed 35 miles per hour and not below present limits. 16. Permit adequate service fee [or inspections to enable all counties or cities of Iowa to finance motor vehicle testing stations. 17. Compel reporting ot all accidenls. "TB'Hequire 300 loot spacing for trucks and convoys on open highway. 19. Require driving on. right hand side of roadway (except. under certain definite condi- lions.) 20. Regulate truck loads to chassis and braking capacity of truck. 21. Require trucks to operate at not less than 20 miles per hour on a 3 per cent grade. 22. Regulate loading of loose material to prevent spilling on to highway. 23. Prohibit passing where view is obstructed on a 700 foot minimum. 21. Create an independent motor vehicle department under long term commissioner appointed by governor. 25. Restrict motor vehicle and gasoline tax funds to highway construction, maintenance and safety. 2ii. Make legal provisions lo increase the responsibility of parents for traffic violations of minors. 27. Require registration of, and regulate operation and equipment ot all bicycles, as a safety measure and a protection against bicycle thieves. 28. Prohibit sale and use of fireworks except to and by qualified exhibitors. There has been and is no claim of a monopoly on right thinking in this group of men and women who have believed in the safety cause enough to give largely o£ their time and means. Their recommendations, however, do represent the consensus of a representative group of intelligent citizens who have given special study to the subject. Representatives of several state agencies with a special interest in safety sat in on the meeting and gave , the conference the benefit of their! information. The recommendations brought forth merit, and we feel confident they will have, Ihe most serious consideration of Iowa's law-makers, in both house and senate. Only One. Course Open F ROM a standpoint of the legalism involved, it is difficult to see how the judge in that circuit court at Flint, Mich., could have handed down any other ruling than the one announced Tuesday. Written into the constitution in-language that doesn't admit of misunderstanding is a guarantee to American citizens to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects. Surely there's an abridgement of this guarantee when Ihc owners of m a n u f a c t u r i n g plants arc barred by strikers on the premises from operating their properties in a lawful manner. It's possible, of course, t h a t a new social order will alter this f u n d a m e n t a l division of right as between employer and employe. We're not saying here there shouldn't be such an alteration. But in the injunction plea as it was presented to the Michigan .judge, only one avenue was open. And that was the one traveled in the decision granting the injunction^ Compulsory Insurance Tl\ r THOSE slates where compulsory automobile ·*· insurance has failed, there was one fundamental shortcoming in the setup. The clement of compulsion has been upon the insurers to provide insurance for all. That is as wrong as it could be. It's an hand-engraved invitation to recklessness. The compulsion should be upon the automobile owners to maintain the kind of safety record that would entitle them to insurance. The insuring agencies ought to be at full liberty lo select their risks. If anything, there should be a lowering rather than n raising o[ protection rates. Let the motorist know H i n t he isn't going to be able to q u a l i f y for a driver's license unless he keeps his record clean enough to qualify for insurance and you're soing to have an amazing improvement oC conditions on Iowa's highways. Another unansweied question is why columnists all think the public is specially interested in their children. Haling has been an exorbitantly costly luxury for this old world down through the ages. Get right down to the bottom of things and most modesty is a subtle way of bragging. That Iowa campus night club has proved; that it's still possible to have joy without gin. Whatever happened to the last half dozen duels that Budapest doctor was going to fight? The radio announcer who can dramatize a hog market report is an announcer indeed. Every new triumph in generosity gives one an added pride in this community. DAILY SCRAP BOOK . . by Scott PROS and CONS y^liy^^ OBSERVING :4lg53»8!gSim^i1i^^ BORNEO HOLLOW PRODUCED By HAMMERJKC; ON A \ W IK -TU BE/? FILLED WI-fH AMO-UN-T^ or- WATER. A Recollection of Old Wheeler Hotel ^a--^ happened to be talking the Kfg^ other day with a Mason *2S*" City businessman about times agone. He mentioned having been horn in the old Wheeler hotel and that recalled a funny little incident that occurred soon after my arrival in Mason City. For the Iweuly-Icventh time the ancient hostelry caught fire one afternoon and firemen, working almost by habit, mounted the roof and trained a stream of water down the side of the chimney. A little crowd gathered beneath and watched the proceedings with no great display of interest. It was old stuff. But there's always a \visecrackcr present when a crowd gathers and this one was no exception. He raised his voice and addressed this remark to the firemen atop the structure: "Hey, you. Is she burning all YOUR SHARE OF THE TAX LOAD Nashua Reporter: The total governmental debt n this country, which must ultimately be met by taxation, was, on Jan. 1 this year, $418.08 for every nan, woman and child in the United States--a tolal of nearly Sn4,000,000,000 of which $3'!,405,163,874.41 was federal and the rest stale and local. The head )f an average family o£ four therefore owes $1,72.32 so do not boast that you are out ot debt, for .his tax is in effect a first mortgage on your property or your earnings. SEVERAL MONTHS TARDY Eslherville News: European powers .finally may agree to keep their soldiers out of Spain but they arc acting months too lale. The fascists and communists already have identified themselves in the Spanish civil war and no agreement can undo that damage to European security. H will be more than fortunate if steps taken now can keep -fascist and communist governments from clashing. EFFECTIVENESS OF DRY ERA SHOWN Lake Mills Graphic: Effecliveness of prohibition n drying up the nation's appetite tor intoxicants is reflected in government statistics showing that the consumption of a wine is now up to one-half gallon per capita, despite extensive advertising campaigns by vintners. This is "practically total abstinence" compared to France, where 40 gallons per capila are imbibed annually. HIGHER TAXES AHEAD IN IOWA Le Mars Sentinel: With the retiring governor recommending $3,000,000 increase in the state levy and the incoming governor suggesting further public spending there is little hope for lower taxes in Iowa in the next biennium. Lawmakers talk about economy during their campaign for election, but it is usually forgotten when they come to making appropriations. LYNCHING IS UNTHINKABLE Creslon News-Advertiser: Many editors , . , suggest lynching the Mattson kidnaper. One goes so far as to suggest chaining him to a stake and slowly burning him to death. A horrible thought. It won't do. No reputable newspaper can afford to advocate mob lynchings of any kind, and particularly one that shocks every sense o£ civilization. PROUD OF JUDGE HENRY GRAVEN Greene Recorder: Butler county, and Greene in particular, is proud of the fact that one of its citizens is considered capable and qualified so as to be selected for the important office of judge of the district court. · We are confident that the office will be conducted by Mr. Graven with d i g n i t y and jurisprudence equal lo that of his predecessor. - INGENUITY IN* NOMENCLATURE Luverne News: Did you read of the Chicago blending concern which was putting out a brand of whisky labeled "Wally Whisky--Fit for a King." But the federal alcohol control administration discovered some provisions in the statutes ivhereby they could forbid the company putting such labels on their products. . POPULARITY PROVED Garner Leader: As is always the case with political figures, Mrs. Miller had enemies as well as friends. Few, however, condemned all her policies, and her popularity was shown at the recent election when she was sent back to office with the largest majority vote accorded anyone on the state ticket. _ HELL'NEEDED FOR KIDNAPERS Logan Observer: We'd hate to be compelled to decide on the punishment of any kidnaper. That is such a heinous crime--it is one of the tilings tnat makes one pretty sure there is a hell, and if there is not there sfiould be. 2-3 FAR. A$ KM.OWK -TrlEY ARE.-TriE- OML.Y VE.R.

Verse I n l n W HEN February comes I like to read the lovely poem, First Signs, written by Marion Louise Bliss of Washta, Iowa. It was printed in this column Feb. 7, 1934 and bears reprinting. Miss Bliss is known throughout the state, not only for her poetry, but also her fine book reviews. FIRST SIGNS The first star that pricks With its chill light The sky of evening Is like the first wedge of the wild ducks To mark with swift unhampered flight The coming of spring! O February days, When winter drags a tattered scarf Along the northern slope of hills, And redwings venture back And flickers flaunt their gold and black Before the wind! O February sun, Pale as Ihc folded promise in the bud Of some bright flower, .You have not long to slay But leave me with a newer, braver heart Than yesterday! FOOD THAT INCREASES WEIGHT '·pHOSE WHO are gaining weight sometimes \von- -«· dor where it is coming from. They don't realize that there are h a l f a dozen articles of diet lhat Ihcy hardly consider as food al all. One is gravies and sauces. Bread and butter is another. Salad dressing; the fat part of meal; the lump of sugar they put in the coffee. These adjuncts to the meal add more to the caloric value for most people than the entire rest ot the meal all together. If you arc asked what you had for lunch, you say, "a lamb chop and some stewed tomatoes, and a very small piece of pic." What you ought to say is, "I had three buttered crackers while I was waiting fov the lamb chop to come, two slices of. bread and butter with the lamb chop and tomatoes, quite a rich gravy on the chop, a piece ol cheese with the pie, and 200 calories worth of cream and sugar in my coffee." If all overweight people would stop eating bread, butter, cream, gravies, fat meat, olive oil, pastries, ice cream and sugar, they would automatically lose weight. This, however, takes a great deal Vr. l-lendenin» o[ lhc p i ca3U1 . c allc i t n s i c away from meals and is the burdensome part of dieting. For this reason we can substitute certain things. In the case of bread, you can use the diabetic breads, such as gluten bread, Lister's flour bread, soy bean flour bread. For butter, the only substitute I know is golden spread, which to my taste is just as satisfactory as butler. II may be obtained from Lister Bros., Inc., 'II East Forly-scc- ond .street, New York City. It is the only butter substitute I know, and as many grocers do not know of its existence or how to obtain it, 1 give the address. Olive oil, which, of course, i.s used mostly in salad and mayonnaise, can be replaced by mineral oil or liquid petroleum. With a little training any cook can make a salad dressing which is just as good as Ihose made with olive oil. Gravies Are Problem. Gravies are a problem which can only be met by abstinence or getting used to thin gravies without or with very little fat. Sugar substitutes arc saccharin, Lister's sugar- free sweets or Haydcn's crystallosc (Haydcn Chemical corporation, 30 Union Square, New York Cily), Some people' do not like Hie taste of saccharin Crystallosc is more like siiyar. Dr. K l l i o t l Joslin doc:; not allow d i a b e t i c patients to use either saccharin or crystallose, believing that they sire better off if they get used to going w i t h o u t sweet stuff altogether. As a mattci of fact, I agree with h i m , but for those who are weak, we suggest the substitutes. For pastries and ice cream there is no substitute, but fruit, gelatin and tapioca desserts are more agreeable to a middle-aged palate than sticky ones after one gets used to them. Simply making these substitutions, 1 or going without the articles mentioned, will allow you to eat nearly anything you want and still maintain a stationary weight or lose slightly. Thursday. BREAKFAST--Fruit in season; gluten bread toast (no calories--as much as you l i k e ) ; golden spread butter (as much as you like, no calories); black coffee (or with one crystal or crystallosc.) LUNCH--One small head cauliflower, one dab of mayonnaise dressing: three or four beets, juiy style; one cup of carrot.s; one slice of bread and enough butler; cottage cheese, cup; black coffee or lea with lemon. DINNER--Gluten bread and gulden spread butter; salad with mineral oil dressing; a n y t h i n g else you like--the substitute bread, butter and mineral oil dressing give you a big margin.

The Wheeler hotel, maybe it should be explained to those who haven't been here as long even as a dozen years, stood where the Crystal Lake Ice and Fuel company now has its offices, on First street southeast. It used to serve as headquarters for jurors on duty here in the old days and it was known far and near among travelers. --o-diaries City Solves Two of Us Problems ·joon^ was surprised and dc- RpO lighted the other night lo vat*" discover how excellent ;i job has been done in transforming Charles City's Y, M. C. A. building into a fine modern hotel. Enough space and facilities havrj been left to meet the Y. M. C. A.'s needs. Two problems have been well solved. Charles City has been given a hotel which will slack up with the best in cities of its population class and the Y. M. C. A. has been placed on a secure financial foundation for all time. Roy Wright, proprietor of the new hostelry, is a n acquaintance ot long standing and it by any chance this little item had a beneficial effect for him, I should not be disappointed. He deserves a welcome to North Iowa. Twenty Tears A£o^ WASHINGTON--While the United Stales awaits the is,sue of war or peace.

Community Bonfire Makes Roads Safer ^wonder if Kansas City has ^started something with the ' s a f e l y s t u n t described in the following clipping from the Star, passed along to this department by H. B.: "While thousands of men, wom- ed and children cheered leaping flame;;, nearly 100 old motor cars were burned in a sacrifice to safety early last night on the drill grounds on Robert Gillham road just south ol Thirty-ninth street. "Responsible for the pyre were the Motor Car Dealers' association of Kansas City and the Safely Council which uniled in the campaign to remove dangerous antiquated machines from the streets. "More than an hour before the torches were applied, to the gasoline and kerosene sprinkled cars, the vanguard of the audience appeared and sought points of vantage. By B o'clock, the time scheduled for the touch-off, on-lookers lined the grounds. "While a tank truck slowly circled the pile of junked machines, spraying them with 300 gallons of gasoline and 100 gallons of kerosene, a detail of policemen and 100 Boy Scouts held back the crowd. Two fire companies stood by in case the fire got o'ut ot con- rol. "Stamping their .feet to keep varm, shouting suggestions and varnings, the crowd watched two workmen lay four chains of gaso- ine-soakcd straw from a point 0 feet away lo the junk pile. "A hush fell over Ihc crowd as our men, each bearing a flaming ;erosene torch, approached the our straw lanes. They touched heir torches to the straw. The hains burst into r u n n i n g flames, vhich streaked toward the pile, .'here was a m u f f l e d explosion. V dozen pillars of fire leaped 3D cet inlo the air. The crowd cheered. "In a moment (he scene was jrighlly lighted. The crowd on the lillside west of Robert Gillham ·oad was visible. "Persons in parked motor cars sounded their horns, police sirens screamed and the Boy Scouts shouted to the crowd to keep back. "Officials in charge of the spectacle believed their efforts had been well repaid. " 'We're going to make this an a n n u a l affair,' M r . "Woodard said. 'It's a lot of fun and it serves a good purpose. 1 think it will make people think twice before they drive a dangerously old motor car.'
