THE JOKE IS ON JESSE rpHIS has nothing to do with the "brain trust' ^ Â·I-with any suspected plotting by intellectual radicals to sovietize the government; moreover, it can't be laid at the door of the Roosevelt administration because the central figure in the incident is Jesse Jones, chairman of the Reconstruction Finance corporation, a holdover appointee of the former Hoover regime. It's just a sample of the innumerable little things that rise up to embarrass a public official handling a bic job. But it has subjected .Tones to quite a bit of sarcastic "razzing" because one of his business concerns down in Texas-he's a millionaire captain of industry, you know--isn't playing the game according to regulations laid down by the RFC boss for financial concerns in general. For months past, Jones has been trying to persuade bankers all over the country to loosen up on 'their loans so that business enterprises might use their credit for increasing activities and employment. He stressed the fact that, with the government assuming ultimate liability for a large proportion of bank deposits, under the federal deposit insurance system, there was no longer any need for banks to maintain such a high degree of liquidity in their resources In other words, they should sell some of their government bonds and loan the money out to their customers. of the big banks in New York, Chicago and proofreaders can't correct OTHE^^ OUR MARVELOUS INDIFFERENCE the state.

The slaughter on our highways is a n rlis- dis other large cities have refused thus far to follow this advice and smaller banks are naturally waiting on the big establishments to take the lead. Chairman Jones not long ago picked out a Chicago bank which had advertised itself as "100 per cent liquid" and scored the management, in a public statement, for failure to give its co-operation in the national recovery movement. Now cornes the sequel: Somebody down in Houston, Texas the home town of Mr. Jones, took the trouble to look up the published reports of a national bank in that city, of which he is president, and discovered that it has been steadily contracting its loans and putting more and more of its funds into government bonds during the past nine months. . Great, therefore," is the glee of his critics in spreading the news that whereas the Jones bank had only 5SV- per cent of its resources in cash and securities last June, the proportion rose to 62.2 per cent in December and 80.3 per cent on March 5. They show, further, that commercial loans declined in the same period from 41 per cent of deposits in June to 37.2 per cent in December and only 25.9 per cent in March. In all probability Jones had very little to do with this The bank,-no doubt, is being run by others while he is in Washington handling the RFC job. But, of course, he has to take the gaff notwithstanding And Jones is a fellow who can take it. He must have grinned when he got this message from the Chicago banker whom he had previously upbraided: "Atta boy, .Jones. Keep up the good work. At l/i the rate you" are going it won't be long before we are TM both 100 per cent.

In many states inspection of cars at stated intervals is a prerequisite to the use of the highways and the,car is given a certificate of mechanical excellence after it is put in proper condition. That is necessary but it is even more necessary that the man who drives and upon whose skill, judgment and decency depend the lives of other people should show that he possesses qualifications to drive. We cannot iepend upon the education of drivers and appeals to their sense of fairness.

Recently I noted an item about an order issued by the Indiana highway commission to those who maintain roads. All mowers must be equipped with a flushing bar, so simple of construction that farmers could without trouble supply it on their mowers. From a bar extending from the front of the mower gunny sacks or some other material swishes along over the grass in front of the blades of the mowing apparatus. The purpose is to startle the nesting bird and flush it, at the same time informing the operator in ample time to lift the mower and save the " "All right of way in the state high-way system arc to be mowed with mowers equipped with flush- in" bars," the Indiana state highway commission's order reads "Tliis will prevent the killing ot birds not out of the nest. Flushing bars to be used in mowing on the right of way will be provided by the department ot conservation ana forwarded to you. We also cxpec you to instruct your employes opci ating mowers not to destroy nests after the mowing operation is com Dieted, if nests are not disturbed. Another important part of thi order concerns the burning of gras along the right of way. The orde "Burning of grass and other vcgc tation is hcrpby prohibited alonf right of way, except in such spccw cases where permission for action i requested and granted by the nign wav commission." The way marshes, fields, hedgerows, and right of way have been burned during the past year has made it difficult for song and game birds.

In the writings and speeches put forth by the brain trusters in their own names and for the politicians who lean on them we find that radicals become liberals, conservatives become reactionaries, socialism becomes planned economy, inflation becomes reflation, debasement becomes revaluation, confiscation becomes equitable distribution, greenbacks become circulating bonds without coupons, monopoly becomes codification, initiative becomes exploitation, history becomes propaganda, the constitution becomes an outworu ducement, dictation becomes co-operation, and borers from within become technical^advisers.

They have too ,long played, the the central powers would have turned the tide the other way. In Washington a few days ago, the seven mem- rs of congress, both houses, who voted against entering the war insisted, on being interviewed, held mrt of a pawn for the reactionary bosses who. hav- nÂ°- failed at every turn to block the democratic re- coverv program, have now all but given up hope of retaining their hold. bers they had been sustained in their position: Some of them held that no single decision in the nation's history had been so fraught with disaster. This, too, ithing for future historians to decide. ~The one" certainty of the situation is that United States, considered by and large, went into the war without thought of selfish gain. We believed m the ideal of an idealistic leader-making the world safe for democracy. We know, of course, that this result was not obtained. Dictatorships on all hands make a grim joke of our idealism. Out of that conflict grew the American Legion the largest service men's organization within one nation in the history of the world. Marching in its ranks are a million men, with an average age of 41 or 42 years. It is merely the army, navy and marines of 1917 grown a. few years older. Some, differing with a single debatable policy of the Legion, are prone to condemn the organization. Such a course reflects an unfairness and a narrowness. The Legion has made no claim to infallibility. !t has made, and admitted, its mistakes. But such Mistakes have been offset a dozerjfold by admirable accomplishment. Examination of the whole picture will convince any fair-minded person of this. Jt is singularly appropriate that the local Legion post's final drive to attain its membership goal and jring the fourth district over its assigned quota should open" on this seventeenth anniversary of the conflict out of which the organization was born. The American Legion is destined to march on, with steady foot and sure. And Mason City, in the future as in toe past, must be in the vanguard.

MUSUV" THINKS F. R. D. SURPASSES LINCOLN CALMAR, April 0.--In a recent issue of your paper, there was reference to a woman who had spoken slio-htingly of the $7.50 which had come to her family from the CWA. I would like to see v.-liat kind of a woman it is that can speak in that tone about the CWA checks that have meant clothes, food, shelter and even life to so many of us all over the United States, even in Iowa. I can't help believing that a woman who would speak thus, or have such thoughts, has ever been in actual want. If she had, 57.50 would mean the difference between actual suffering and the chance to give her children three small meals a day. It's hard to get along on .$7.50 a week. I grant. But it's much easier than getting along on nothing as some of us have been trying to do for several weeks. What do such people want? I think we should get down on our knees and thank God for sending us such a man as Franklin D. Roosevelt--and God surely has sent him. No man could do the things he has done without God's help. Lincoln was a great man. But I think Roosevelt wTIl go down in history as even greater. Sincerely yours, MRS. H. J. SPINNER. CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME Are vou "just, before you are generous.
