S .50 Enlarging Supreme Court テつキ^RESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S proposal of a s'weep- テつキ*テつキ ing reorganization of the judiciary is disturbing indeed to those who have believed that the fundamental relationship between the three branches of government should continue as it has been nurtured under the American system. The practical effect of the recommendation with respect to caring for old age on the supreme court , would be to increase the present tribunal of nine justices to 15. The sitting members past 70 years of age would be given the option of retiring. This course might hold the membership under 15. It's presumptuous perhaps to question the recommendations of a president who as recently as three months ago was sent back into office with an unprecedented popular blessing. But we are sincerely hopeful that the fundamental change of governmental relationships inherent in the suggested course will have the most earnest consideration of all who must pass on it. The unfriendly view, of course, is that the whole proposal is a device for "packing the supreme court." To tliis viewpoint the president, by indirection, would move straightway to the appointment of justices tacitly pledged to find constitutionality in any measure adopted by congress. The foundation for this assumption would be found in the recent presidential message to congress in which Mr. Roosevelt stated in plain terms that a new attitude in the judiciary rather than . change in our organic law is the thing needed to give effect to forward-looking legislation in a new world. In the friendly viewpoint--and there's every reason for believing that Jin's is the one that prevails in congress--the president is credited wilh highest motives. A sincere wish to speed up court machinery and an explainable desire to have one of the most important functions of government performed by mature but not senile minds are assumed in tiiis viewpoint. Candor compels an admission of fear on our part . that the proposal would not be for the ultimate good of our country. For the time being at least, it would p,lace the judicial branch of government on a subservient rather than an independent basis. We cannot believe that the president would wish for himself the supreme authority inherent in this lecomrnendauon. None evei had as much in Amer-' _ican history. W It's our sincere hope that"the all-important questions raised by the chief executive will be pondered long and seriously before their answers are written finally. i Iowa's New Grid Mentor T WOULD be an exaggeration to say that the selection of Irl Tubbs as head football coach テつキat the University of Iowa has set the prairies afire テつキwith enthusiasm. Out of all who have been mentioned in connection with the position, alumni and other Iowa sports followers have been least attracted to the Floridian. That much will have to be admitted. On the other side of the ledger is the fact that Mr. Tubbs has been .the choice of those in constituted authority at Iowa. They looked at Mr. Tubbs and they looked at his record. It was their studied judgment that he could fill the bill. Mr. Tubbs himself believes sufficiently in his-own abilities to come to the assignment without contract. "A contract is of no consequence' so far as a football .coach is concerned," he told a representative of the Iowa board in control of athletics. "If I can't please Iowa and if Iowa can't please me, we're going to part company. We might just as well face the facts." , That attitude rather sells us on the new Iowa coach. An examination of his record will disclose that lie has done superlatively well every job heretofore set before him. That it was in institutions smaller than a Big Ten university docs not alter this fact, or detract from it. His inventive genius has given him an income independent from coach- テつキ ing. That bespeaks an essential smartness and a business ability. These are- not wasted in the coaching profession. While at this distance, Mr. Tubbs would 'not have been our first choice at Iowa, we have an instinctive disposition to be for the man--any man-who's trying to do a job. So it will in this case Coach Tubbs is entitled to the loyal support of all lowans who like 'to see their state represented in intercollegiate athletic competition by strong teams. We hope he has this in unstinted measure. About Child Marriages TWTARRIAGE of a girl of 9, "down in the backward テつキ^テつキ^ ' district of the Tennessee mountains, has created a demand for a change in the laws of the slate under which such a thing could be permitted. The odd part of the incident is that neither the parents of the adult young husband, nor of the girl, can discover any reason for the excitement the wedding has caused. The girl's mother says she married too young, but nothing can be done about it, and after all everything will be all right. There is, of course, ground, for annulment in the fact that the marriage license was issued on a false statement that the bride's age was 18. But if hone of the parties interested apply for annulment, apparently the marriage will stand. It would appear that, for the good of the community, the state should have an interest'in child marriages not ^dependent upon the opinions of the families or individuals involved. It is, of course, a freak ease, one that will seldom be duplicated. But marriages of girls of 12 or 14 are common in the southern hills, and they are not much of an Improvement over the Johns affair, from the standpoint of public policy. Human beings of low social standards, and small contact with the outside world, need to be brought to observe minimum standards not only for the public reasons, but for their own good Legislation is certainly indicated for Tennessee which will prevent any repetition. In that neck and neck race between Ellsworth Vines and Fred Perry, both players seem constantly to have tlieiv eyes turned toward the box office. Could any subject be much more important in high school than one which would teach boys and girls how to drive an automobile in safety? Thirteen Russians this week found out the price of having ideas different from that of their government, ' Sit-down striking as a means of paralyzing industry is a product o f t h e French radical mind. ^Try to advance one good argument against changing io an indoor presidential inaugural. Talking about controlling the Ohio and the Mississippi is much easier than doing it. We have a hunch there's still quite a little life in those old republican bones. Emerson was right. friend is to be one. The only way to have a PROS and CONS WALLACE SEES THE LIGHT Burlington Hawkeye-Gazette: Henry Wallace, the high priest of the cult of the "economy of scarcity," is wavering. In fact, he has almost changed fronts. In a recent interview he said that he believes this year American agriculture should produce in abundance. It is to be sincerely hoped that Secretary Wallace sticks to 'this principle. His policy of killing little pigs and plowing under crops has not worked out satisfactorily. True, the price of farm products is higher, but among the chief beneficiaries must be listed the foreign farmer and stock raiser, and more and more Americans are beginning to believe that the wanton waste of eithei products or land is both wrong and will not permanently solve our agricultural problem. BENSON RIGHT ON BOOZE Fairmont Sentinel: Governor Benson is dead right in his estimate of liquor debauchery in Minnesota and his determination that it must be curbed. There has been too much "playing down" in high places of the liquor saturnalia that is fast,making this the most drunken country on earth. It is a mighty task that the governor has set for himself. The man who jousts with John Barleycorn in sodden Minnesota needs the impervious armor of a Sir Galahad and the stout courage of a Martin Luther. We hope our senator and representative will strengthen the hands of the governor in this fight for humanity. \ RADIO DOES A FINE JOB Cedar Falls Record: fladio has demonstrated its true worth in the present flood emergencies. Some people are inclined to take the radio pretty much for granted, but time will paint the picture more graphically. Later on it will be recorded how radio directed rescuers to many isolated areas, how it collected information that could be gathered in no other way. Without the radio many communities ,vould have been shut off from communication with :he outside world. Later on the full import of hat will be appreciated. , SMALL REASON FOR STRIKING Indianola Record: With a good many labor ;trikes we have sympathy. Even though the methods used may be extreme and sometimes unjusti- ied, there is often an underlying injustice to labor hat has Jed up. to the final extreme action. But n the case of the strikes of automobile workers, one of the best paid labor groups in the world, it vould seem that there is no reason offered except he determination of labor leaders to assure more and better salaries for themselves. IOWA PREFERRED Boone News-Republican: Good old Iowa--it doesn't flood us out of our homes nor freeze us out of season, No, all we have to put up with is a little subzero weather, plenty of snow, a lot ot ice, droughts and 100 degrees in the summer. At that, we'll take Iowa. 1 BEFORE THE IRON GOT HOT Oelwein Register: Governor Kraschel showed good judgment in making his selection as early as possible and before a big fight is created by so many candidates getting in the field and demanding the appointment. NEWS AND EDITORIALS Elkader Register: Our news columns give you facts, stories of what happens. Here we tell you what we think--to make you think--but not to tell you what to think. ' WHERE IT ALL STARTED Swea City Herald: From this distance it appears the controversy is between John L. Lewis and his C. I. 0. organization and the American Federation of Labor. LUCKY NORTH IOWA Osage Press: How little, we Mitchell countians know about the natural disasters that are always visiting other sections of the country! LOOKING AHEAD Ames Tribune: We can see the time coming when the "unprivileged group" will consist of families having only one car. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG HOMESTEAD TAX RELIEF SPENCER--Since my former article the Globe-Gazettcj I have received a new report by the state planning board, dated Nov. 14, 1936. The public is entitled, to know .about this new report. It corrects the wrong impression gained from the first report. In this new report they say: "In presenting this further report on its homestead tax survey, the Iowa state planning Aboard hopes to clarify any misunderstanding arising from its first progress report on this project by more specifically relating findings of the survey to the measure which the recent legislative assembly passed, Bnd which.the governor vetoed." Approximate Effect of Homestead Tax Relief Measure as Proposed by the 46th General Assembly.

People in town and city would have had better than 80% of the taxes paid on their homesteads. Not only that, but a very substantial sum would have been turned over to the old age assistance fund. I call that quite substantial tax relief to a very large per cent of Iowa people. The state planning board has completed the survey for 32 counties. Any one desiring the f u l l report can set it by writing to the State Planning Board, Ames, Iowa. : , A.' H. A VERY.

He sat down and wrote me as follows: "Was pleased and flattered that you dad given me credit for writing what I considered a fine poem on Iowa. I have no desire, however, to take congratulations for something not written by me. The poem in question was written by our mutual friend, Jake Swisher, of the Iowa Slate Historical society. "Of course, Jake is better known as an historical writer and I believe that 'Iowa Agriculture' is the only news publication t h a t has carried any of his poetry up to its publication in the Globe-Gazette. Our issue in which this poem was published carried an explanatory note giving Mr. Swisher credit tot- it on an inside page and I would appreciate your column making mention of the fact." --o-Philadelphia Lawyers Got Reputation Early L can't tell you, T. Pipe, how is a doornail, how happy is a lark or how high is up. But I have found some interesting inormation concerning the historical foundation for that old expression: "It would take a Philadelphia lawyer to figure that out." Why a Philadelphia lawyer? Why not a New York or a Chicago lawyer? Ever stop to consider when you made use of the expression? It was somebody in the research department of the Fort Dodge Messenger who delved into history and learned that the expression had its inception back in 1735, a fact which would bar Chicago from consideration. A New York publisher, Zenger by name, gave publicity to a statement that peeved the governor of New York. Suit for seditious libel resulted. In the course of the legal'pro- ceedings, when his lawyers were no longer permitted or were unwilling to continue, Zenger imported a lawyer from Philadelphia, one Andrew Hamilton. By a brilliant defense Hamilton gained an acquittal. His shrewdness created a sensation and people said it took a Philadelphia lawyer to figure it out. The decision also set a precedent in guaranty of the freedom of the press. Klcmmc Editor Shows Himself a Real Spori テつォKテつサti. have known R. A.

Williams on the ed- i t o r i a l page of his Garner Leader hist week: HEAL SPORTSMANSHIP For a mighty nice display of good sportsmanship, we think Ray Jorgenson and his Klemme Times deserve a hand. Ray lias a boy playing on Hie Klemme high school basketball team this year (playing a credible game, too, we understand). But when the Klemme boys fell before Goodell in a renewal of a traditional rivalry, the Klemme paper didn't try to explain his defeat or to undermine the Goodell lads. A fine story was headed "Goodell High School Wins 'Battle of the Century,' " and a front page column included this paragraph: "At least one Goodell fan got a big kick out of Klemme's defeat and mailed a post card to The Times with the following message: "Extra, Extra!

And many more were killed at home than in all occupational accidents. This certainly blasts the illusion that the -home is safe. But we need not be fearful at home. What we must do is to be aware that then guard against them. For example: Don't use chairs or tables as stepladders. Keep articles off basement and attic stairs. Teach children to pick vip toys -- so others won't trip over them. Never start a fire with kerosene or any other inflammable liquid. Put ashes in metal containers. Mark all poisons plainly.
