Against the dispatches telling of appropriations for the military in the various major nations are a set of imaginative -items designed to describe a similar absurdity in the Jones home, the Smith home, the Brown home and the Green home. In each case, the story is of buying something not needed merely for purposes of keeping up with a neighbor. The editorial is cleverly handled and one wishes it could be read in London, Paris, Tokio, Rome and Berlin as well as in the United States. Long, long ago America began trying to impress on the world that a system of competitive armaments could lead to no other end than world war or world bankruptcy--or both. Up to this time, there isn't the slightest indication that our story has been accepted. Armaments have been increased rather than decreased. The Christian Science Monitor editorial opened with a reference to the administration's navy program as an absurdity. Considered as a part of the world race in disarmament, that's probably proper. The "home" parallel drawn was: "The Blank Motor company bill for ?750 for a new car similar to the one now driven by the Smith family, ·which Mr. Jones has admired, was paid today The budget deficit will make it impossible for Junior Jones to have any new shoes this year." Considered by itself, however, a failure on the part of this country to prepare itself for a danger known to be existent could be just as graphically paralleled in tils same Jones home. It might be as follows: "Because he believes that Iowa winters of the future are going- to be mild, Mr. Jones has decided not to install stoves or a furnace in his home now being srectcd. He has decided to use the money he believes others have been wasting on heating equipment to purchase additional books for his library. The added books will be mostly for Junior, a young son whose edu- With approximately eight million out of employment in Germany, and about the same proportion in Italy and the other countries where emphasis has been placed on increasing the birth rate, the economic justification for an increased population is a bit obscure. * * * * Rabbi Stlphen S.

OTHER VIEWPOINTS cational development is a Tones home." primary interest in the One wishes that everybody were as realistic about this war and peace business as Frederick W. Nor- r ! i t i n S not so long ago in the Christian Century Pupit. "My theory," he asserted, "is that unless peace is in the minds of men, there is no possible way by -which it can be achieved." "In a confused fashion," he writes in another place, ·'we have been trying through these recent years to establish peace. No, that is not the correct term. We have not been establishing peace; we have been trying to prevent war, which is an altogether different thing. We have been thinking that if we could only control the engines that make for war we could organize peace · into existence. We seem to have been almost oblivious . to the homely truth that both war and peace, in the last analysis, are matters of the spirit. "It does not at all follow that the least armed nation is pacific. There are nations which are armed to . the teeth because they want peace and fear war. We · cannot find the common denominator for disarmament --there is none. Nothing could make the nations of ' the world more unequal than absolute disarmament." The reference in the final paragraph of this quoted matter is probably to America, although it might apply to Great Britain. While we are not "armed to the teeth" in any sense of the word, we have made it a national policy to recognize that we are living in a world which stakes its faith in force. The armaments we have built may not avoid war but they'll come in mighty handy if war comes. A GKEAT IOWA NEED Fort Dodge Messenger: The Mason City Globe- Gazette speculating on the how and why of the brazen bank robbery there last week makes the customary suggestion about the need of disarming the underworld and then goes on to say: "Another, and perhaps more important, step would be to establish in every state an adequate constabulary, trained to combat bank robbers as well as to promote safety on the highways. This suggestion calls to mind the recent killing by Iowa's special session of a bill to inaugurate a highway patrol, a project more indisputably worthy than any legislation turned out by the assembly." We can heartily agree with the above view. In fact, this paper has been arguing for years that a state police force in Iowa is an absolute necessity. Had the state a well organized police force, properly equipped with radio and high-powered motor cars, a blockade could have been thrown around the Mason City territory almost before the robbery was completed. Under such circumstances, the chance of escape for the bandits would have been slim. As we have frequently pointed out in the past, the automobile and the paved road have created an entirely new situation never dreamed about when our present law enforcement agencies were planned. With pur modern highways and high speed motor cars it is only a matter of several hours from one end of the state to the other. Counties and municipalities are not organized to protect life and property on the high- W ' S " rightfull y' responsibility of the Not only is a state police force needed as a matter of crime prevention but also as a means of better regulation of motoring to the end that Iowa's frightful highway accident record can be cut down Mrs Alex Miller, secretary of state, has recently prepared a Bulletin showng the number of motor vehicle acci- 5 ,« 1 £» Iowa - tt is an "^arming report. Back in 1926 and 1927, yearly fatalities in Iowa due to automobiles were slightly over 300 for each year. In 1932 they were 530 and last year they were 546. This is for deaths More than 13,000 people were injured in automobiles in the state last year, many of them suffering severe injuries which v.ill cripple them in one way .or another lor life. Yet the state goes on, letting anyone drive on the highways in practically any way they choose and in any condition, without scarcely raising a hand for regulation. And the Iowa legislature in special session for more than four months busied itself with ev- erytmng under the sun but neglected the most funda- - nro ,-TM U ? ?£ a .^ slative body-providing needed protection to. the citizens of the state. w K * A "TTM 5 TOO ROUGH Webster City Freeman-Journal: There used to be a rule, in the primitive days, that a jailer answered for the security of his prisoner.

WATER NATURE'S CURATIVE F ROM TIME immemorial man has believed in the curative effects of water, and pilgrimages to healing springs at this time of year were regular occurrences. The oceans, the lakes, the rivers, begin to be warm enough for immersion, and the beneficia effects of internal and external treatment by water have long been recognized. It in creases general bodily strength, i! benefits the circulation and the res piration, is a tonic to the skin, and in consequence increases our effi ciency and good looks. It reliever pain, and is one of the great stirnu lants of the world. With our modern knowledge o physics and physiology, we are abli to understand the effects of water in health and disease--effects which were so mysterious and awe inspiring to primitive man that thej were ascribed to the actions of supernatural beings. SHOWEX RATH BUY FOR QUALITY TJUYING low grade, shoddy merchandise because it is "cheap" is an extravagance; buying quality merchandise is economy. The Globe-Gazette offers you the above shopping motto for 1934. Paste it on your calendar where you can see it every shopping day until it gets so fixed in your mind that you never forget it. Low prices have an appeal to lean purses. The appeal was strong a few years back when qualilty mer- ' chandise was high priced. The lure of low "quality, low cost (apparently) goods was strong then to the buyer who thought herself thrifty,, but was only short sighted instead. That lure should have passed with the new lower price levels of the better grades of merchandise today. You can buy good merchandise today for what you paid for the indifferent qualities a few years back. Why waste your money on cheap imitations when you can get the genuine articles for approximately the same price? This is a buyer's market, in which you can demand and receive value for every outlay, if you know what you want, when you want it and where and how to purchase. Under present conditions there is no excuse for making thrift, spend-thrift. Insist on good quality and honest workmanship. Make certain of lasting satisfaction. You can spend less and get more for your money in 1934 than has been possible for the last two decades. The purchase of quality is REAL ECONOMY. You'll find it pretty much the same no matter what merchandise you buy. It's unsafe to buy on appearance alone. The important thing is to realize the principle involved and learn to look for quality in everything you buy. Question the dealer from whom jou buy and find out why he is glad to sell you one article for 98 cents yet wants 52 for what seems to be its twin FIRST IMPRESSION OF COLFLESH Britt News-Tribune: As a first impression on many local people, Robert W. Colflesh made a good showing Tuesday evening, and, we believe, planted seed that will grow an hundredfold as the weeks pass by leading up to the republican primary election. He gives one the impression of a man who is serious thoughtful earnest, deep in bis convictions, honest, easy of approach but firm in his determination. THE TAINT IS ON ALL OF THEM! Titonka Topic: There is always something bobbing up against candidates that doesn't look well in print Against Turner we have his cow war record- Colflesh --attorney for oil companies; Short--a bolshevik- Knutson--the gross income tax; and if Patterson was in the game it would be the net income tax.

Newton News: One begins to wonder if a contract really is a contract these days. The cancellation fever seems to be spreading. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG If water of a different temperature than that of the skin is applied to toe body, it will either conduct heat to the body or absorb heat from it, as the case may be. This acts as a stimulant to the network of blood vessels and nerves in the skin and causes a sort of massage of toe circulation. A tonic bath should be one which is accompanied by having toe water thrown on toe surface of the body with some force. Usually with a tonic bath the water should be cold, and the best example, of course is a cold shower. The impact of the water causes a contraction of the surface blood vessels, shortly followed by reaction, so that the skin t u r n s pink and glowing. There is a definite rousing of the vital energy of the body. Naturally the best time to take a bath of this kind _ is at a time just '-- "^ before action and vigor of body or mind are required, as in the morning Hoi Asa cou »ocae nox i comoL tailor early in toe eve- j , , . nin . a f t e r the day s work is over, when it may be necessary to resume such activities as society imposes upon us The relaxing bath, on the contrary, is one in which the water is tepid or warm, and in which no impact of toe water on toe body is arranged for. Such baths are frequently used for insomnia and, in fact there is no better soporific than being wrapped in a sheet wrung out of tepid water and enveloped in one or two blankets--the wet pack. t,. ^°l P ^ in ' here is nothin S b " et ter than water.

There's always a reason and it may 1's a reason that will save you a lot of grief. IF THE TRUCKS KEEP INCREASING MASON CITY, March 22.--Mr. Platt, a representative of toe state of New York, was laughed at back in 1916 when he offered an amendment to a bill up before the house to appropriate many millions of dollars for bettering our highway system. His amendment offered was that they strike the Word "agriculture" and the succeeding words to and including "marketing farm products'; and insert "the manufacture and sale of automobiles." The primary purpose of the bill was to make rural life more agreeable and attractive and reduce the cost of marketing the fanner's products from 28 cents a mile to 8 cents, as it would do away with the driving in mud to the hubs of his wagon and thus increase his profits. It appears it will not be many more years until his offered amendment will not be a laughing matter as there will be so many commercial trucks and buses on our main highways that the farmer cannot get out of his driveway on to it with safety and will have to cut through the fields in mud hub deep to market his products again.

S. that no interference with the commerce of China on the ground of nationality would be permitted. Thus did Secretary of State John Hay establish the famed "Open Door policy" in China--for all but the Chinese. 1905---Japanese defeated Russians in one of the greatest battles of modern times, captured Mukden and most of Manchuria. Russian losses were tremendous: 27,700 dead; 110,000 wounded; 40,000 captured. The great powers deprived Japan of Mukden and her conquests in Manchuria; she waited 27 years, took them again, is keeping them in the guise of the new state of Manchukuo. 1909--Theodore Roosevelt, 19 days out of the white house, sailed with his son, Kermit, and party for a hunting expedition in Africa. 1913--Turbulent yellow waters of the Miami river backed up into the downtown section of Dayton, Ohio, drowned 84 persons, caused the greatest damage ever done an American city by a flood--5128,000,000. As the Miami and related rivers went surging on, swollen by the melting of heavy snows, 700 more were drowned in Ohio and Indiana. OBSERVING have always believed that holding WSUI to a channel and power which limits it to a small territory at night and ban-ing WOI from toe air after sundown was nothing short of an affront to radio listeners who relish something other than prunes, toothpaste and overalls. But Gregory A. Vincent, now living in Jersey City, N. J., has a different view. "As far as WOI is concerned," he writes, "I believe it is just as well off without evening broadcasting priviledges, except on the occasion of basketball games, which many 1'olks might like to hear. "Neither WOI nor WSUI make anywhere near full use of their daytime broadcasting hours, though their programs have high entertainment and informative values, and I don't believe WOI has as broad a field upon which to draw for programs as has WSUI. So I see no particular reason for extending its air-time into the evening, at least not with anywhere near the daytime power allowance." Mr. Vincent also observes that it's . poor radio set that will not "single out WSUI and bring it in with good volume any place in Iowa." I'll let ten thousand lowans who tried and failed to get toe Big Ten basketball broadcasts this past winter roll their own reply to him us to this. --o-bow my compliments to the Forty and Eight and the medical profession of Mason City. In the diphtheria immunization work conducted in the schools of Mason City under the joint sponsorship of these two worthy organizations, a disinterested service unsurpassed within my memory of local affairs has been accomplished. Guarding- the health, and the lives, of our youngsters is an activity which calls for the highest possible appraisal. I for one am grateful for what has been done here in the past fortnight to promote the community health. --o-guess we're going to consider an old shoe the best answer to our riddle of a week or so ago until somebody comes along with something better. From Mrs. Vern Losee of Dougherty, I've received the following letter in support of her answer: "Perhaps if I give you my interpretation of how the old shoe applies itself to the growing corn, my answer to toe New York Times riddle may be considered correct. "I think toe old shoe would be helpful to a corn on the toe, not the corn in the field. The weary husbandman also would appreciate an old shoe. "Please consider this corn as one on the toe and I'm sure you will see this might be the correct answer you are looking for." Mrs. H. D. E. of Sheffield rather chides F. E. F. of Iowa Falls for his failure to see how completely "old shoe" fills the bill. "There seems," she writes, 'to be something lacking about nig imagination. Perhaps, though, he never grew a corn and thus discovered how very 'needful 1 is an 'old shoe' to the 'growing com.' It seems to me the answer 'an old shoe' fits every condition of the riddle as nothing- else can." --o-have just inspected, thanks to A. L. Rule, one of the admission tickets for the U. S. senate trial for impeachment of President Andrew Johnson. An editorial reference to that dramatic incident of the post-Civil war period caused Mr. Rule to rummage among his historical keepsakes for this interesting exhibit. The ticket, which includes a coupon to be taken up at the entrance, was used by W. P. Brady, father of Mrs. Rule. Mr. Brady's father was a congressman from Pennsylvania and a seatmate of Abraham Lincoln at the time the latter was in congress. The admission ticket reads: U. S. SENATE IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT ADMIT THE BEARER MAY 1, 1868 GEORGE F. BROWN, SERGEANT AT ARMS. The coupon reads: "To be taken up at Main Entrance; No. 399; U. S.

These include all types of sleeping and passenger cars on many railroads and on observation, lounge, club and Pullman sleeping coaches. "By the end of 1934," to quote from Railway Age, "all principal trains on the railways will be partly or fully air-conditioned and the railways will have in service 2,800 air- conditioned cars. By way of contrast, at the close of 1933, there were only 648 air-conditioned cars in service, including 404 railroad-owned and 244 Pullman-owned cars.''
