The item referred to the difficulty encountered by "a fellah untutored in higher economics" in "seeing just 'how America is to reach the much discussed abundant life for all on a basis of curtailed production." Mr; Hunter falls back on the old analogy between agriculture, and industry. "The Mason City Globe-Gazette," lie argues, "cuts production to demand. When it'gets enough newspapers through the press to supply requirements, the press is stopped. Why doesn't it keep the press running to capacity? It could easily print a dozen times as many papers as it does." This is clever argument but it doesn't cut down to the bedrock of the situation so far as this goal " of an "abundant life for all" is concerned. A fact not denied by any informed person is that there are millions of Americans who do not have an adequacy, say nothing of an "abundance," of the good things of life. According to the Brookings Institute, there wasn't even in 1929 a complete supply for the American consumer demand. There was no thought of quarreling with the policy of curtailed production inaugurated back in the Hoover administration and carried on with added effectiveness by the present administration. Believing in an America for Americans, with its ·corollary ol self-containment so far as possible, we would hardly be the ones to object to the regimentation inherent in the curreu* 1 policy, in agriculture. ' We're told that "the more abundant life" had its origin in the Good Book. Though it's centuries old, it still has an attractive ring about it. If, however, it is to be anything more than a nice-sounding phrase, primary attention is going to have to be 1 placed on matching the normal consumer demand as it never has been up to this time. . Curtailed production is a policy of expediency. Bringing the "abundant life to all" is a goal of idealism. We still don't see how we're going to have the latter so long as we practice the first. Nor is our anxiety about this altered or relieved by Ihe column-long editorial in question. I Out of Step With Times T IS quite outside any reason or iogic that the 130,000,000 people of this country must continue "You make me impatient when you talk of democracy," Mussolini recently confided to an American correspondent. He had this same 'impatience with, democracy some 15 years ago when he organized an army and marched on Rome. Old Andrew Carnegie's observation when asked which is most important in industry-^-capilal, labor or management--is still pertinent. It was a counter question: "Which is the most important leg of a three-legged stool?" There wouldn't be much of a highway safety problem if every driver practiced the rule of being as courteous in his car as he is in his home. Pity the poor fellow who on being asked by the eye specialist how many lines he could read on the chart responded: "What chart?" What Iowa school man, say nothing of the public, has ever seen a financial statement of a state basketball tournament? The plan seems to be for the justices to resign and run for the senate. How about a strike against strikes? DAILY SCRAP BOOK . . . . . by Scott PROS and CONS to submit to a system of industrial organization, or lack of it, which permits of a strike such as the one just ended in the automobile industry, a tieup which in a brief few weeks carved close to a half billion dollars .out of our annual national income. How long must the public go on playing the role of doormat to .be trampled on. in the scuffle between industry and labor? Both are part of the body politic, minorities within the social organism and subject to its superior sovereignty. Both have rightSj o£ course--but so has the public, anc by sheer weight of numbers the right of the public lo peace, order, and lawful settlement of disputes by legal and reasonable methods is the paramount right involved. Over the outcry and protest of the beneficiaries of such unregulated anarchy as now prevails, the people who object to the rights of labor, or the rights of capital, being guaranteed by law and their holders made amenable to law, society must assert its own right to be heard. When capital and labor reject "compulsory arbitration," or legal regulation of disputes, they are asserting the right to attack the public in their own interest. They are setting up the social morals o£ gangsters, hoodlums, pirates or freebooters. There is no such right. Hesitation o£ politicians to tackle this cancer because of the fear of great corporations of financial strength, or the fear of great labor organizations of political strength, may well be modified by reflection upon the much greater strength, political and financial, of the millions of the rest of us, "innocent bystanders," who are demanding that law be extended to cover this area of chaos and violence, and that the .laws be enforced. ·T · «»l Aid for .an Oppressed People QTRONG support should be accorded the.Ameri- " can Jewish joint distribution committee in its effort to obtain a fund of $4,650,000 for the assistance during this year of the Hebrews overseas. The quota lor this year is about $1,100,000 more than that of $3,500,000 in 1935. The collections for last year were under the quota by nearly $700,000. This shortage has occasioned the request for a larger response this year. The .funds are to be collected in the United Slates and Canada. Suiiering is being experienced by the members of the Jewish race in many countries of Europe. The Hitler policy of suppression has made its lot ·in Germany almost unbearable, A portion of the funds subscribed is needed in Germany for the support of existing Jewish schools and to accord trade training to Jewish boys and girls. Jewish refugees from Germany in France, Holland, Czechoslovakia and Belgium are greatly in need of assistance both for immediate sustenance and to afford them an opportunity to become self supporting. J.cws in Poland and Houmania must ' also be nided. The call for · the assistance for the oppressed people should, fall upon willing ears in this country. The Hebrew race has done a great deal for all our chanties. Now that there arc Hebrews needing assistance, their call should not go unanswered. A novice in these modernistic art galleries encounters" his greatest difficulty determining whelh- ^er the pictures are really i-ight side up. . PASSING UP PROFITS Fairmont Minn., Sentinel: The high priced boys who handle national advertising for this paper explain that the reason the Sentinel gets so much less for its money than other papers in the group is its refusal to accept liquor and nostrum advertising. They tell us that liquor folks are handing out larger appropriations than ever this year and don't quibble about" rates if they just horn into the family newspapers. Well, to hell with that business. This paper's self respect \is not for sale. It knows it cannot itself command respect and confidence--it's most essential assets--unless the same can be said of the advertising it carries. We notice too with gratification that the number of papers purging their columns of this contaminating copy is slowly increasing. In a recent agency report the following Minnesota dailies are listed as not accepting liquor advertising: Albert Lea Tribune. Faribault News. Winona Republican and Herald. Austin Herald. Fergus Falls Journal. Willmar Tribune. Hed Wing Republicans.; Minneapolis Star. Fairmont Sentinel. We.think there are two or three other dailies entitled to a place in this roll of honor and any number of weeklies. This paper is ashamed of. its newspaper associates who lend their columns to the making of drunkards. They should not need a "law for It' but since they do let the legislature include In whatever liquor control measure it adopts a provision banning all liquor advertising. As Jfar as truth in advertising is concerned the damned stuff advertises itself. The published advertising is false for it assumes to make a respectable citizen out of John Barleycorn, which he is not, never was, never will be. .OUR STAKE IN THE AUTO.INDUSTRY Iowa Falls Citizen: Our readers may or may not realize that 10 per cent of all-the cotton raised in the south; 22 per cent of all steel manufactured; 28 per cent of all nickel; 35 per cent of all lead and 72 per cent of all plate glass manufactured, go into automobiles; that the hauling of raw materials and parts alone for manufacture of cars was responsible for 3,500,000 carloads of freight by railroads in Ihe ast year. HE WON'T EVEN BE -NOTICED Nashua Reporter: Among other predictions, a noted astrologer says that a United States senator will lose his mental balance during the year 1937. From the goings on down at Washington one is led to believe that one more unbalanced legislator will not make a great deal of difference. DUK New Hampton Tribune: Reports from "all parts of the country indicate that a substantial building boom is on the way. Expert observers are convinced that the need for new construction has reached the point where extensive building and rebuilding will soon be inevitable.

BEST OF AMy-TKlMCj COPYRIGHT. 1937.CENTRA!. PRESS ASSOCIATION DIET and HEALTH By LOGAN CliENDENING, M. D. PROGRESS IN MEDICAL SCIENCE : T IS MY usual custom on Nesv Year's day, or during the early part of January, to describe what I ccoisider the greatest advances made in medicine in the last year. This year I omitted such a discussion because I did not feel that any discovery had been made important enough to merit such a EARLIER DAYS IN MASON CITY ·old tr Olobt- Gaielte Fllei ONE SINGIING MOUSE THEORY Nashua Reporter: Wonder wliat kind of liquor the state is- dispensing in those towns which are making a bid for publicity via a singing mouse. Its remarkable what one's imagination will do when it comes to hearing things. JOT DOWN THIS PREDICTION Jefferson Bee: And that is not all. Franklin D. Roosevelt will be a candidate for president for third term, and he will again be nominated, and again elected. . He has an ambition to do what no other president has done, and he is in a position to do it. JUDGES MIGHT BE INDEPENDENT Webster City Freeman-Journal: If Roosevelt does undertake to pack the courts Jie might^e very much disappointed in the decisions rendered. A THOUGHT PROMPTED BY FLOOD Allison Tribune: It is nice to have a city built on the banks of a beautiful river but it is safer to live back in the hills. i claim. Others do not share my opinion, however, and in a medical journal --Clinical Medicine and Surgery --a number of people express themselves in answer to the two following questions which the editor sent out: · ,. · "1. What discoverytor invention in any field, made during the last year or two, do you consider to be of the greatest actual or potential importance to clinical medicine? "2. What .do you consider the ^_^_____ most important drug or other . Cltndoning measure of treatment introduced to the medical profession within ihe past year or two?" Dr. Walter Alvarez, of the .Mayo Clinic, answered Ihese as .follows: Progress in Biochemistry. "I think the mos.t promising and most interesting thing of potential value to medicine that I have seen this year I saw in the laboratory of Prof. Ernest Lawrence of the University of California. While I was there his liuge cyclotron was hurling billions of neutrons at tremendous voltage into a flask containing sodium. As a result o£ the collision between atoms, the sodium was becoming radioactive. When such sodium, or any other artificially produced radio-active atom, is injected into an animal or into a man, it is the easiest thing to follow the tagged molecules about through the body and to measure the amounts in the urine and the blood and the sweat. I believe that tremendous advances are going to come now in the field of biochemistry, and this new knowledge is bound to be of great use to us in medicine. "It is hard to answer your second question. To my patients, probably the most appreciated drug which we have come to use frequently in the last two years is ergotamine tartrate (see this column, March 4, 19S(i), which in most cases will bring prompt relief lo sufferers wit)) migraine. "Another splendid achievement of the pnst few years is the rapid treatment of gonorrhea with artificial fever. I think this marks a remarkable step forward in man's conquest of disease." Thirty Years Ago-Walter Wise is visiting relatives at Chalfield, Minn., today. ' Nona Williams of Webster City was in the city yesterday for a visit with relatives. Frank Stanbery of Waterloo was in the city on business yesterday. , S. M. Decker of Eagle Grove is in the city visiting today. _ · C. E. Geist of Ventura was iri the city yesterday on business. Thomas McFarlane of Austin, Minn., visited relatives in the city yesterday. Frank R. Currie was chosen a member of the board of directors by the Iowa-Hardware dealers at their meeting in Des Moines this week. At Davenport the Iowa Jewelers elected J. H. Lepper secretary of their organization. After a Year We AH Take It for Granted am-~ doubt if anybody now Spg gives thought to a style of vS?* front page makeup that was inaugurated By the Globe-j Gazette on Jan. 16, .1936, more than a year ago. I refer to the rule of having no "Continued to Page So and So" lines on the front page. When our attention was being directed to it at the time of its inauguration, we were conscious of the advantages inherent in the plan. But now we all accept it as a matter of course, just like we do city water or electricity. Such is the essence of progress. I suspect that [he most effective way to make us aware of this h e l p f u l step would be to return for an issue or two to the plan under which anywhere from 5 to 15 page 1 stories carried "jump lines." Once more I want to express my thanks' to D. D. (Red) Mich, editor of t h e Wisconsin State Journal, for this "no jump from Page 1" idea. It was Mich (for three years managing editor of the Muscatinc Journal) who proved the practicability of the plan. It was an innovation with sound reasons for perpetuation. . Concrete Paving Used on Golden Gate Bridge t l i n t it speaks pretty well for concrete paving that it has been chosen for the San Francisco- Oakland bay bddge. A lighter material might have been used-but it wasn't. Although a relatively small part of the bridge structure, the paving contains enough concrete to pave a good sized town. For,, all around satisfaction, durability and cost considered, there isn't even a close second to concrete, in my opinion. · ~~?~ A History of Cer'ro Gordo Press at Last --__ think this community owes 3g^ Charles H. Gelo a vote of *as^ thanks for his illuminatin_ history of Cerro Gordo county's newspapers presented in the columns of this publication. Acting on request of the Globe- Gazette, Mr. Gelo dug into the records and came up with what is, I believe, the most complete article on the subject ever produced locally. On numerous occasions I've sought without success to learn about the origins and the mergings of newspapers printed here. In the future I'll need only to refer to Mr. Gelo's interesting story, which has gone into the Globe-Gazette files for preservation. Your service in this matter is enormously appreciated, Charlie. Twenty Years BERLIN--Increasing possibility of war between the United Slates and Germany lias increased the tension between Vienna and Washington. Americans now tn Austria have been warned from Washington lo leave that country. C. H. McNWer has returned from a few days business visit in Chicago. J. M. Anderson of. St. Paul was in the city transacting business yesterday. M. K. Culver of St. Ansgar was a business caller in the city yesterday. * Man Has Only Four Real Essential Needs ^^-.. have given quite a lime ^p£: thought to it and I can't 'S'*" add lo or improve the list of "really essential things that people need" as set forth recently by a New Yor 1 ; rabbi: "A job, for economic security; a hobby, lor relaxation; a friend, for companionship and comfort; a cause to defend, for inspiration; a church, for inner peace and courage." I can trim up this list with some frills, and add on a lot of unnecessary items which are costly and time-and energy-consuming. But they do not go to the roots of the essential. · ,_ All those things a man needs. \ Without them he is incomplete. . With them he has everything that makes for happiness. The job may not be the best paying in the world. But if it provides necessities and a little margin, and is of the sort that a man can do with satisfaction, he can find nil else he needs in the rest of the list. The hobby need.not be an expensive or exacting one. I know of no people who get more fun from life than a couple of friends of mine with hobbies. One is a woodworker, who can do any- t h i n g with tools--and does. The other is a gardener, who has turned a waste patch into a thing of beauty for himself and his friends, with no nib re expense than a little of his leisure time, and a few pennies worth of seeds. And the cause to defend, the church to support and be supported for spiritual comfort and faith in present and future--these fulfill that part of the man which we call the soul, and which transcend his physical being. Without these a man is only animal; with them 'he is complete, balanced, well-rounded. How much energy we waste, and how much unhappiness we cause ourselves, by constant striving 'for needless possessions that become a burden once we have them. Rich food and drink is bad for us, expensive homes and furnishings are a load upon us and breed a sort of slavery. Nobody can wear more than one suit of clothes at a time. . And yet we all strive and worry, and will continue to do so to the end of the chapter. There is something in us tlrat drives us to it. Few have the simplicity of mind to go slraight to essentials and forget the trimmings. The fundamentals of happiness arc in the esse'ntials, but somehow most of us cannot be happy with tliem only. And the harder we fight for more, the more we need. Answers to Questions n- FREDERIC J.

EDITOR'S MAIL BAG BISHOP GALLAGHER EULOGIZED ROCHESTER, Minn.--Upon the cicala of Bishop Michael James Gallagher, Father Coughlin e.x- presse_d himself as having lost his best friend. This applies not only to Father Coughlin, but also to the toiling masses of America--yes indeed, the world. Social justice for the men and women who toil,must prevail, lest Christianity shall perish from the earth. That was Bishop Gallagher's creed. To him the dollar mark and religion were not on common ground. His, deathbed request was that Father Coughlin resume his radio broadcasts. That was the greatest legacy Bishop Gallagher could have bestowed upon the people of America-yes indeed again, upon the civilized world. It will now again be possible for the untold millions who, for many months have eagerly awaited Father Coughlin's return to the air, lo hear him every Sunday afternoon nt 2 o'clock, and again in the evening at 7 o'clock, Central Standard Time. May God bless him with health and courage to carry on. .5. O. SANDERSON.
