They have decided that nothing can avert war, and turned their attention to preparing for it. As for generously undoing the wrongs of Versailles -it doesn't seem to have occurred to anyone that this might be a way out. Though millions die the wrong headed greed of the World war victors must be vindicated! MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE · ----DAILY SCRAP BOOK THREE .. . . ... J7.00 By mall 0 months ...

The laws, according to this report, are of three types: (1) To punish members of a lynching mob or sheriffs who permit a prisoner to be lynched; (2) To make cities or counties liable for reparation in money for damages suffered at the hands of a mob; (3) To order a special- term of court to try the prisoner promptly, thereby removing the excuse that the regular process of law is too slow. Arkansas is the only state that has the preventive measure of the third type. In 20 states prisoners may be sent to another county if there is'danger of mob violence. The punishment usually provided where lynching is a "crime" is life imprisonment or death. Three of the states impose a lesser penalty in prison sentences. Kansas, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Virginia Pertinent or impertinent Of course the husband won't admit it--he's too h / V o , x' n eart , h6 iS P ' eaSed with th * ProVect lAhat . « le , Globe " Gazettes cooking school to be held April 3, 4, 5 and 6 will bring him a little change of * * « The mad race in European countries to hring more children into the world appears to have the dual purpose of supplying more cannon fodder for war and more unemployed for peace. * * * That representative who is crowing about Jim Farley's great achievement in wrecking the airmail service would probably say that Lee had a great day at Appomattox. a * * Most veterans would rather have honesty than hokum from their representatvies at Washington with regard to the bonus. * » e Maybe it's the ability to borrow money cheaply that gives Washington the idea of starting something new every day. OTHER VIEWPOINTS and West Virginia make it as much a crime to be party to a lynching as to perform the act. Statutes imposing liabilities on cities or counties for-permitting mob violence are more common The maximum amounts which the local governments may be compelled to pay range from ?5,000 in Illinois, New Jersey, Ohio and West Virginia, to $10,000 in Penn- Three states do not prescribe a maximum smallest damage BLAME THE CABINET "YES MEN!" David Lawrence in United States News: One day last month, the president of the United States, surrounded by a group of his cabinet officers and advisers, decided to approve the cancellation of all airmail contracts. The president asked if the army could carry the mails. Somebody answered "Yes, Mr President." Today we mourn the loss of ten army flyers killed in line of duty. Today the airmail service which took 16 years to build has been disrupted. The-few millions of dollars alleged to have fraudulently enriched the pockets of airmail speculators sylvania. amount. In South Carolina, the which may be awarded is 52,000. Nine states have statutes which require the removal of sheriffs who permit their prisoners to be lynched. The officers may be reinstated if they can show that every reasonable precaution was taken to prevent the lynching. Attention of state legislators is invited in this article to a model lynching law, drawn up recently, which contains more stringent provisions. Among these are: (1) Removal of the offending sheriff and peace officer by the governor, and makiEg them civilly "·liablet6-'tlie victim or his estate for damages; -(2) Substituting- information for indictment and allowing] Uve Bunder we n - ave seen to a ^eca'de trustworthy hearsay evidence; (3) Providing for ef- ,, ~ -----· ZZZSZfttJSZi - St THE MURPHY APPOINTMENT E!«^25?SHH JF, entirely independent of politics and with no limit would, if they could be recovered, never offset the loss of life. For human rights supersede property rights. Who then killed the ten army flyers? Bureaucracy and sycophancy at its worst. Even a smattering knowledge of commercial aviation and the airmail problem was bound to have included information on the hazards of night flying and the fact that the army was not trained to the task. But more important is this question: What emergency required such an abrupt cancellation and the issuance of orders to the army to take up the airmail task in midwinter, without preparation? Why could not the army have been ordered to take over the job in 60 or 90 days? At least milder weather would then have been encountered and there would have been opportunity to enlist the services of trained pilots. Several of the commercial companies offered to lend their pilots to the army. Why were not such offers accepted?

This distance corresponds to 35 miles an hour. DIET and HEALTH administra- By LOGAN CLENUE.MNG. M. O."

He has, according to the Deutsche Allgemeine -ieitung, succeeded in squaring a circle. Here's how: The area of a circle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle whose one cathetus represents the longest side ot an Oberl trapezium and whose short cathetus equals the distance from the center of the circle to the point of intersection of diagonals of the circle surrounding the trapezium. These two diagonals intersect m a section area and simultaneously at a right angle. Now why didn't some of us think A^ b ? f ? re?

With their yearly ticket they are able to board a train anywhere and go anywhere within that tiny republic 1 . The report says the plan is working out most satisfactorily. American railroads offer special inducements to commuters m the cities but so far as I know, there is nothing approaching the Swiss annual ticket for the ordinary user of the railroads.

MARS RULES EUROPE TT IS depressing to note the general tone of despair and helplessness which infuses Europe as the newest armament race begins. Not a note of hope or leadership is sounded anywhere. Even Britain seems now to have surrendered. Captain Eden, who for months has been traveling about Europe to endeavor to manufacture a suitable formula for revival of the disarmament conference, has reported in despair to the British parliament. In effect he announced that disarmament is a dead issue, and Britain must look to her guns. Thus, it seems, ends the league of nations phase of world history. A great humanitarian ideal, put into practice at staggering cost in blood and wealth, has been sunk by the greed and hypocrisy of its founders. Distorted at its birth into an instrument of conquest and tyranny, it was relied upon by the victors to obtain the unjust fruits of victory. It was the agency of enforcement of the most unreal and disastrous peace treaty in history, which the sheer force of economic and national realities is now unraveling. Like the Holy Alliance it was based upon an essentially impractical view of Europe, and like the Holy Alliance it is gradually disappearing. Disarmament can come Only if the conditions which cause nations to fear each other can be eliminated The new armament race, says Walter Lippman, really began in 1932 when Japan scrapped her obligations under the league covenant, the Pacific treaties, and the Kellogg pacts. It received impetus, it might be added, when Hitler seized power in Germany a year ago and roused alarm in all the states which had profited by the peace treaty. It is just conceivable that the strains and tensions, of tie world might even now be eased by conciliation i A JINX PURSUES is no reason to su PPOse that these finding's ' -- Ten Years Ago -,, ?, 0f ° NfE - Fair «eId nosed out Mason City 15 to a e today " The play finail What was the full name of Hi Brook Farm experiment?
