As Others See Us fpWO Interesting appraisals of the Globe-Ga. zetie's editorial page have been presented late- T3T?/"\C Of!/"I ly. One, from Fred Biermann, former representa- LX\.\_/O dllLl five in congress, set us down rather pointedly as unfairly republican. Another, from an Osage reader, said in effect: "Go ahead and say what you want--folks don't pay any attention to you anyway." Comes now a third viewpoint--that of a republican who IS a republican. He points out that among members of his party, our reputation for loyalty to party has at times been a bit in discount. As a part of the process of "seeing ourselves as others see us," we reproduce herewith this most recent communication, from R. F. Clough of Mason City: "I was quite interested in reading former Congressman Bierrnann's letter to you, charging that In-your editorial column you are so strongly republican as to be unfair. "I noticed that he complimented your paper on its handling of the news, which compliment' I think is justified. "As to the criticism of your republicanism and · lack of support of the democratic party, it happens that I have heard a great many republicans over the fourth congressional district criticise you for not being sufficiently vigorous in your republicanism. I had thought that many times you were quite restrained in your republicanism. I suppose the whole is a demonstration of viewpoint. Republicans say that you are not sufficiently republican, and a democrat can say that you are too positively republican. "However all that may be, I suppose that it is generally understood that the editorial column of a paper expresses the personal viewpoint of the writer, as much so, perhaps, as Mr. Biermann or I might express our personal viewpoint in our own letters or conversation. Ordinarily, I suppose that the editor who writes a newspaper column might find more persons in agreement with his editorials than the average person would in his own personal views, although this may be doubtful. "Your own reference to the fact that many times the voting public do not follow your personal views is sufficient proof that your editorial column is understood to be what it purports to be, a personal viewpoint. It does not purport to be- news, and might even occasionally contain some error of fact or conclusion. This is really nothing against your editorials, because it only proves that perhaps you are human and sometimes can commit an error. "I suppose the charge which Mr. Biermann generally makes against newspapers in the fourth district has some basis in fact, because the district was preponderantly republican for so many years that I suppose it was natural that persons with republican leanings were in the majority in newspaper circles. The reverse o£ this situation would be true in most of the states south of the Mason and Dixon line. I do not see how one could expect that the editor of a newspaper in Memphis, New Orleans or Birmingham would give in his editorial column the partisan arguments that republicans might consider good. "The foregoing is rather my personal feeling in the matter. I have no objection whatever to the democratic party and its men presenting to the public their viewpoint. However, I do not see .how it can be expected that a man who happens to have republican leanings should write editorials advocating the policies of the democratic party, and condemning those to which he himself adheres. "I hope that Mr. Biermann's criticism will not discourage you from continuing to render general support to the republican party and its principles." Radio has impressed upon people the fact that there are only seven fundamental jokes. Relief Trend Is Upward A GOOD deal more significant and heartening to ** business thtn glittering generalities such as. inarlMd Hpjry Hopkins' recent address In Iowa Is the conorcle,proposal laid down by Senator Pat Harrison, of Mississippi. He believe* the way to restore business confidenoe is to restore government credit by beginning to save instead of increasing the spending. So Senator Harrison sug- 'gests that every appropriation bill be slashed 10 per cent, and needless spending be eliminated. The way to reduce is to reduce, he argues. Senator Harrison is in a position to do something more than talk, too. He is chairman of the powerful senate finance committee, to which all appropriations must be submitted. As a sidelight on the Harrison proposal are these figures showing the average monthly relief expenditures lor the last six years: 1933 $ 87,408,000 , 1934 145,431,000 ' 1935 177,471,000 1938 218,328,000 . 1937 194,562,000 1938 (11 months) 247,671,000 These figures are prepared by the social security board, and are not open to the change of anti- administration bias. They simply show that in 1937, the year of relatively good business, relict costs were still more than double what they were when the federal government began its spending program. Obviously, with 12',4 billions already spent on relief and the situation growing worse instead of better, Senator Harrison is right in his suspicion that spending will not lead to recovery. It is lime to try the other way--the way the democrats pledged to follow in their 1932 platform--the way they deserted six months after election. Some Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchanges A NEWSPAPER'S BIRTHDAY W. G. Williams in Garner Leader: Thirteen years old! When birthdays come In youth, they are always occasions for happiness and rejoicing. When they come in age, they bring reminiscences and memories. This week marks our thirteenth anniversary in the newspaper business here in Garner. Young in point o£ service, but more advanced in point of age, we find our birthday an occasion for both joy and for remembering. At 13, the Leader and Signal is a husky, growing child. Unlike human contemporaries of its o\vn age, it is the type of "child" that appreciates every mouthful of sustenance, every kind word and every friendly suggestion that helps in its physical, cultural and industrial growth. Slory of the Week R. A. "Jergie" Jorgenson in Klemme Times: A minister in a nearby town was giving a temperance sermon recently and stated emphatically that if he had all the wine in the world that he would dump it in the river. And that if he had all the whisky, gin, beer and all other intoxicating drinks that he would dump them all in the river! At the close of the sermon he called upon the congregation .for someone to volunteer a song to sing. A man in the back row piped up with "Shall We Gather at the River." Liquor Control Hot Subject !n Iowa Lake Mills Graphic: Lines are being drawn for one of the hottest fights of the session over changes in the liquor laws. In spite of statements from advocates of no change that the state is satisfied with the operation of the present law, no one subject is drawing as much attention as the control of liquor. Traffic Signs Must Be Plausible Dubuque Telegraph-Herald: In the interest of safety, we must have enforcement of traffic rules, but we can't expect that unless the rules are sensible. We can't expect compliance from motorists driving over highways, where not a single house may be in sight, and yet limited to a speed of 25 miles an hour. We've Really Learned How fo Kill 'em Forest City Summit: Modern "culture" and "education" have produced the most efficient methods in mass killing, burning, bombing, bayoneting, sinking of ships, concentration camp horrors and. destruction of life, liberty and property. The barbarity of the savage was more refined than the cruelty of "civilization's" undeclared wars throughout the world. Would Retain Party Circle Boone News-Republican: The circle should be retained for the benefit of those who want it in order to vote expeditiously. Experience has proved that it has helped both parties impartially, so that -side of it counts little. If the matter is put on the basis of the rights of the voter, then it should be left on the ballot. ' Endangering American Friendships Ackley World-Journal: The president is doing his level best to. cut the friendship of nations that' should be courted. If Roosevelt were alone in "carrying a chip on his shoulder," it might not be so serious, but the American people are involved. For Federal Aid to Local Fairs Greene Recorder: It seems to us that it is about time for some congressman to champion the cause of these community fairs and see that they get, at least, an even break with the larger expositions. How Eke Would One Explain It? Albert Lea Tribune: It is reported that a man in Des Moines has equipped his new home with a spiral ramp. And we were told that 3.2, beer doesn't intoxicate. Where It Really Starts Manly Signal: If we choose the right kind of congress it won't be necessary to call on the supreme court so often to save us from our own follies.

Mason City girls were badly beaten at Marshalltown Friday evening where they went for a basketball game with the Marshalltown team. The score at the end of the game stood at 20 to 1.

VITAMIN B NEEDS IN DIET /·pHE radio boys are away ahead of us newspaper ·*· health columnists on the vitamins--you know, the fellows who plug the products during the intervals in which the tenors, the comedians, and the charm girls are temporarily hushed. It has seemed to me lately that there is just the slightest little tinge of exaggeration in what the radio has been claiming for the vitamins. When the vitamins first came out, they moved on an intellectual plane which was somewhat removed from the radio vision, but those who discussed them admittedly found, in the idea of these stimulators and protectors of the body, an inspirational idea which led many into prophetic enthusiasms. There were many who ] doubted if they would just com- I pletely reform drooping human |ity as was claimed. : And "this attitude has been gaining ground Dr. Clendenine in scientific circles. But the ra- The Power of Gandhi ! suppose the average western mind is- incapable of comprehending the hold that. wizened little M a h a t m a Gandhi has on the natives of India. His way of life means more than the highest governmental potentate. In the latter part of last week Gandhi started a fast, vowing he would take no nourishment until the native ruler of Rajkot--Tha- kore Saheb Shri Dharmendrasinh- ji--gave his people a "voice in government." Four days later, the fast came to an end. The British viceroy interceded with the local potentate to gain an acceptance of the demands made by the strange little Mahatma. . The Brahmin masses oJ India know from past performances that Gandhi means what he says. His three-weeks fast in May, 1933, to gain fair treatment for the "untouchables," gave the jitters to the British empire. His other fasts have gained their objectives in a week or.even less. India has been uneasy lately. There has been rioting and casualties in Lueknow. The place Gan-' dhi chose for his fast was deep in the interior of the Kathlwar Peninsula, 110 miles west of Cambay. The Indian office had much to fear from this last Gandi protest. That's why. the demands were so readily granted. The Holy Man of India is frail and weak from his Spartan regimen. Should he succumb, all the British in India would not save white rule in the sweep of reprisals. Little appreciated in the western world is the dread seriousness of this one man's influence, for this bony little brown man is the spiritual leader of 351,000,000 persons. No Mercy, Please! ~~ i hope there w i l l be no · leniency whatever in dealing with the vandals who entered Madison school Sunday and wrought property damage estimated at several hundred dollars. Once and for all it should be made clear that this sort of thing is an important offense against the public, one that merits a stiff punishment. There can be no exterminating circumstance for vandalism of this sort. If the culprits were youngsters they deserve a term in the training school. If they were adults, they deserve to do some time behind bars. Undoubtedly evidence was left behind that will lead to their ultimate identification. The time has come when destruction of public property--· whether it be on a wholesale scale as in this case or a mere breaking of street lights--should be dealt with sternly. It reflects an unsocial attitude from which our public enemies are incubated. Canned Rattlesnake learn that one establish- i ment m Mason City has ' been responsible for the dispensing of two dozen cans of rattlesnake meat in recent months. And its order for another dozen', cans is now in. "Do you like the stuff?"'! asked the merchant. "I never tasted it," he admitted with a chuckle. "Why do folks buy it?" I asked next. "Mostly out of curiosity," he replied. "There are people who like to boast that they've eaten something as unusual as snake meat." In this connection he recalled an incident in which a cook from · downtown eating place came rushing in for a can of the product. "A bird Just ordered a rattlesnake steak sandwich, thinking w« couldn't supply it," the cook explained. "I want to call his bluff." Drunken Driving have heard it suggested a J number of times that the penalty for drunken driving in our state is too severe. An attempt actually was made in this session of the legislature to have the minimum penalty reduced from a $300 to a $100 fine. Fortunately, it was unsuccessful. The best answer to proponents of such a bill lies in the figures released by the motor vehicle department concerning automobile accidents which took 486 lives in Iowa during 1938. Of the 535 drivers involved in these fatal accidents, more than a fourth, 142 to be exact, had been drinking. TFF Days 1 r-s -S D To T H O S E RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RECENT CAPTURE AND PROMPT COMMITMENT of one of the most vicious crimi- - nals in recent Mason City history. Sunday afternoon police, warned by an observant citizen, succeeded in the timely overpowering and arresting of a man, well above 6 feet tall, who had lured a little girl into an abandoned building. Wednesday evening the man was in Fort Madison penitentiary serving the maximum sentence possible under the law, incarceration lor not to exceed 20 years. ° ANSWERS to QUESTIONS By Frederic J* Hoskin " · MAIL BAG Interesting Letters Up to 250 Words Are Welcome CRITICISM ISN'T TREASON M ESERVEY--That we, American citizens, enjoy rights unknown to subject peoples is obvious. One such right is the right to differ with those who have been hired to act as representatives and servants of the people. But, apparently, there are those among us who are so nudealishly confused that they believe criticism of F. D. R. to be treason to the United States. F. D. R. is a man--not a god. No man has attained perfection. Certainly F. D. R.'s expeditions into un-American territory deserve the most severe condemnation from a liberty-loving people. When nudealers criticise us we are very happy --for in their criticism we find evidence that we must be right or nearly so. We are glad when they exercise the right to disagree with us--even if they, seemingly, would deny us the right to disagree with their idol. F. D. R.'s place on the John Barleycorn reception committee, plus his efforts to give John title to our inheritance, are "straws in the wind." K. CLARENCE RUIGH .

One must analyze a single case to get a more judicial attitude on the situation. Let us take the case of Vitamin B. Vitamin B* (vitamin B 1 and vitamin B 3 and G and PP are all found associated in nature) is found in many of the ordinary foods that we eat--in yeast, in wheat, in most cereals, in milk. When it is left out of the diet, the cir- is called __ Deficiency of vitamin B 1 in the diet also produces other symptoms, perhaps some heart defect, and some tendency to arthritis. But the question arises whether, when Vitamin B 1 is contained in so many foods constantly used, it should over be necessary to furnish it in concentrated or crystallized form. Fears of such a thing are frequently held over the heads of the people. Akroyd, an English physiologist, has said that "There is really little reason to believe that the average English or American dietary contains insufficient vitamin B 1 for health." Yet, an American observer says, "During the past decade it has been shown that beri-beri exists in the United States in endemic form." This is a surprising statement because beriberi is fundamentally a disease of the far east-Japan and the Malay states--and occurs only when a group of the population lives exclusively on rice which has been milled so that the vitamin B 1 shell has been removed from the rice grain. As it exists in endemic form in the United States, it occurs in people who limit their diet for one reason or other--alcohol addicts, secluded people who live on a monotonous diet, etc.--or those who have digestive upsets so severe as to prevent them from absorbing food. Under ordinary circumstances our ordinary diet contains 20 per cent more vitamin BI than is actually required to provide us safety.
