By Scott'JEMS Toward an Independent Patrol D OWN at Waterloo one day recently a street poll was conducted on the question: "Should there be an independent highway safety patrol under a long term commissioner?" One hundred persons were approached and 100 persons gave an affirmative answer. Sentiment 'is about as much crystallized on this question as it ever was on any issue in Iowa. Xwo proposals were before the Iowa senate this week. One called for a department of safety . and inspection, the other for an independent motor vehicle department. Both provided lor a long term commissioner. Under either plan the principles set forth recently hy the Iowa State Safety council could have been achieved. For that reason the council took no part, directly or indirectly, in the debate over the relative merits of the two plans. The first o£ these principles is that the patrol be placed out of the reach of partisan politics. We have the completest confidence that this will be accomplished under the senate bill passed Wednesday. Governor Wilson is committed to that ideal and the legislature has given unmistakable evidence of like thinking. « Another principle enunciated by the safety council was that the patrol be a patrol -- not an inspection agency or anything else that tends to . take its uniformed members off the highways. There will be an ironclad guarantee of this in the bill finally signed by the governor, we confidently believe. A third principle set forth was that there be provision for a future merit system and a recognition and protection of the rights of the present patrolmen who have gained and retained their position on a merit basis. That, we feel certain too, is in the thinking of the legislature and the governor. In the senate, there was a proposal to increase the salaries of the patrolmen but a decision was reached to -leave this open for later consideration as a' "budgetary matter. Most fair- minded persons-^and that most assuredly -is what the legislature consists of -- will concede that the patrolmen up to this time have been dealt with a bit penuriously. The base pay should be at least $125 a month, with additions for length of service. Another matter which should have the legislature's most serious attention is the increase of patrol personnel by at least 50. Such an addition to the present force would be virtually self- liquidating. At any rate there would be no burden upon anybody and our highways would be made enormously safer. The senate measure in one of its amendments paved the way for a continuation of the educational and co-operative program of the Iowa State Safety council. The fundamental consideration here is that upwards of a hundred thousand citizens of Iowa banded together in this volunteer organization are willing to go on giving substantially of their_time and means if they can but have at modest cost an administrative leadership. For every dollar out of public funds, there will be_ at least five from private source, which is exactly what has happened up to this time. There should be specific provisions for safety education, both as to adults through the safety council and as to children through the schools. The job is one that MUST BE DONE IF IOWA IS TO MOVE AHEAD IN THE FIELD OF HIGHWAY SAFETY: That is a fact recognized everywhere today. This isn't intended to be an argument with anybody, least of all with the Iowa legislature We have never for a moment doubted that this group of lowans. would move to a proper solution of this important problem if they could have the true picture. Our confidence of this was never greater than at this time. · * » * As America Saw Pius XII Somehow or oiher those 35 senators claimed by the secretary of state to be committed to ms retention of the state · highway safety patrol weren't on hand Wednesday when the roll was called. -. » » * The attempt to put Tom Amlie on the interstate commerce commission doesn't line up very ^ 'well with the Hopkins promise of friendlier relations with American business. * * 4 Fritz Kuhn, chief bundsman in America, is about as far from true Americanism as any communist who ever agitated for our government's overthrow. * * * It apparently means nothing to the wishful thinker that there isn't in America today an' accredited economist who thinks the Townsend plan will work. * * * Tom Dewey may find that being at the head of the pack of presidential possibilities this far ahead of the convention carries its penalties. * * * It's difficult to believe that mention of Chicago's mayor, Edward Kelly, for ^resident in 1910 wasn't made in jest * * * There are no record instances in recent history of a dictator having to live on short rations. I * * « Each succeeding snow reminds us that winter isn't supposed to be over until March 21. PROS and CONS Some Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchanger Looking Forward to 1940 Swea City Herald: It Is being said with increasing emphasis the new deal is on the way out. The conservatives rapidly are taking control of the democratic party. Plainly the people are fed up with the mass of measures foisted upon them by the present administration. They want to rest while they digest or reject these measures. This does not necessarily presage a return to control by the republicans. Indeed, at this distance, it looks like the democrats will win control of the federal government again in 1940 -- under conservative leadership, and with decreased majorities, Incidentally, if we were using the English system, an election would be held at this juncture so the government could obtain either a vote of confidence or a rejection of its policies. Under our system we must wait in a stalemate until 1940 to express ourselves. Howsomever, our election system has endured for 100 years, and we have done well enough with it Pension Legislation In Iowa Cresco Times: Proposals to boost the ceiling of old age pensions to $30 a month is not meeting with very hearty response in the present economy minded legislature. The highest pension now paid is $25 a month. "It is going to take $2,000,000 a year more money than we now are appropriating to continue the present program as it is," one legislator said, Iowa now is paying 51,000 pensions with a monthly average of approximately $19.80. Iowa's Educational Mistake Algona Advance: Iowa made a mistake when it divided its higher educational institutions. This accounts for engineering and. other duplications. Incidentally it also accounts for the failure of either the university or the state college to compete at sports on even terms with other institutions of their rank. As a rule you can't pick winning teams from half as many men as opponents can choose from. Praise for New York Prosecutor Knoxville Journal: Good work, Tom Dewey! The American people applauded your great legal' and moral victory in convicting Tammany leader Hines and driving a powerful but corrupt federal circuit judge from the bench. You are putting the fear of God into the hearts of some of the big crooks-- political and otherwise, and that is as it should be. Speaking- of Highway Pafrol Morale Nora Springs Advertiser: It is safe to predict that the morale, if it is shattered, will be quickly restored \vhen and if the legislature makes the highway patrol an independent unit, where ability and efficiency count and not political pull. In the meantime, we still think Earl Miller rather comical in a blundering sort of way. . It Would Be a Monumental Boner Grundy Center Register: If the state legislature turns down the Iowa Safety council to satisfy the ambitions of our new secretary of state it will be pulling a boner that would be an all-time record for any Iowa legislature. Bad Manners and Bad Morals Cedar Falls Record: Bad manners are a species of bad morals. ^ did United Air lines know that the firm-jawed ascetic Cardinal Pacelli who flew m one of their chartered planes across the American continent in October, 1936, was destined to be Pope Pius XIL Americans who came in con, lact with Cardinal Pacelli on his American tour in 1936-- from Roosevelt to the air line pilots-- recall him as a most gracious, accomplished, and kindly churchman. Miss Madelyn Quirici of Chicago, stewardess assigned to the cardinal's chartered plane, is one ot many American acquaintances who remembers Cardinal Pacelli for his broad understanding on h;s visit to the United States. At the end of his humed air tour, in the course of which the present pope was as interested in the American terrain as any new traveler, he presented silver rosaries to the plane crew, pilots, and stewardess who had made hts trip a pleasant one. In the United States Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli spent some time visiting church institutions and prominent laymen. Part of his stay on Long Island was spent visiting Joseph Kennedy, now United States ambassador to England, and Al Smith. The cardinal went with Ambassador Kennedy to visit President Roosevelt at his Hyde Park estate where he made a most favorable impression. Chicago saw Cardinal Pacelli in October, 1936 in the course of his inspection of Catholic institutions. His plane broke its western itinerary for a stop at South Bend where the Vatican party visited Notre Dame and then continued on to municipal airport in Chicago. The prelates and student body at St. Mary's of the Lake well recall the fluent, polished English with which the future pope addressed them. Cardinal Pacelli was and is one of the great linguists of the Holy See. America today has reverent recollections of Cardinal Pacclli, and there is reason to believe that the new pope earned away with him the same impression of the United States. MAIL BAG Interesting Letters Up to 250 Word* Are Welcome THE NEWSPAPER'S SJDE OF IT ·DRITT--Mr. L. R. Duxbury of Osaga based his " letter to the Mail Bag on your statement, that the people recently have voted opposite to the opinions of the republican editors. The fact is, they voted that way in spite of, and not because of, those opinions! Why? Here are a few reasons: 1. Blind faith in the rosy promises of the new deal, led many to doubt their former convictions. 2. The new deal was (and is) centered in, and controlled from, Washington, making it hard for its enthusiasts to listen to anything as close to home as the local editor. 3. The volume of material printed in the home newspapers, warning against too much gullibility, was only a drop in the bucket compared to the avalanche of printed propaganda continuously dumped (at taxpayers' expense) into every mail box in the countp-. . 4 The administration-directed radio (see Sat Eve Post, Feb. 11) poured out its insidious wiles at all hours. 5. Organizations were formed by the new deal to spread uncertainty and vague promises through psuedo-educational channels, etc. With nothing to offer but the good OLD American way, the republican editors stood up pretty well, I'll say. t, ^!f 0 '«-? . the . Iarge ma J° r 'ty of your readers PnrJ^nv ! , .^' l!h the democ «t'c party at the PRIMARY election, » » » the opinions of your paper would change." The primary farce of the present is not a fair gauge with which to maka a survey. (The reasons would require another ·soy words.) In the face ot large democratic majorities at the general elections, in North Iowa, the repub- Jican editors have not changed. But, all of them have been ready to print articles from those on ine other side and many have done so. Perhaps ffie Jfeven out of ten" did not read those either! That Vilification is not argument," is not yet printed m the new deal primer. Vilification of republican editors included. MARJORY E. ROBERTS Hot" oKLV WHI-TE IVOR/ XIFE-PR.ESERVERS FOR.

From GIobe-Gcsrette Files THIRTY YEARS AGO-Who said the ground hog was a bum prophet. A heavy fall of the "beautiful" of more than ten inches last night demonstrates that the teddy hear, the possum, or any other animal is not in it when it comes to delivering the real goods. The snow came without its usual accompaniment of wind and is lying where it fell. The order of the United Commercial Travelers held its regular meeting Saturday evening and installed the officers as follows: Senior counsel, J. C.

TWENTY YEARS AGO-Warren Geer, orother of Lloyd Geer of the Globe-Gazette advertising department force, was in this city visiting Friday. Mrs. Ferman A, Stephenson will entertain the Midland club at the home of Mrs. W. R. Webster at 67 River Heights drive, Monday afternoon, Mrs. Shipman will give a reading. S. C. Roberts, county engineer, has returned" from a meeting of road officials, supervisors and engineers at Ames, held last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The meeting was a success in every way, according to Mr. Robertson. Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Meyers and daughter of Milwaukee are guests at the Dr. R. F. Kunz home over the weekend. TEN YEARS AGO-First aid students of three separate classes recently conducted by the local Red Cross chapter gathered at the home service office on Thursday evening to hear an address on the objectives and accomplishments of the public health department by Dr. C. E. Dakin, Mason City public health physician, and Miss Mabel Sucher, bacteriologist at the city laboratory.

G. C. Bagley and Mrs. G. S. C. Andrick. / Literary Guidepost By John Selby "DOCTOR ADDAMS," oy Irving Fineman; (Random; $2.50.) "·pvOCTOR ADDAMS" is declared by its pub- ·'-'lisher to be Irving Fineman's best work to pate--the novel toward which he has been working for some years. It is nice to find that it is a good book (though a novel only by courtesy.) It is unfortunate that it also has grave faults. A novel is a creation which accomplishes one or sever.al things through a narrative which moves. That is to say, the more nearly static the narrative is, the less like a novel it becomes "With this measuring rule in hand, the reader will discover .that through a large part of its considerable length Mr. Fineman's book is no novel at all. For it does not move or rather, it spends much of its time going backward. It is the story of a scientist unhappily married (though just why this is so Mr. Fineman never succeeds in conveying though he seems to be doing so for dozens of pages.) He is devoted to science, to liberalism. And a girl comes into his life. But-The first and most important "but" Is the fact that Mr. Fineman tells his story in reverse. For example, when his wife comes to his office to talk things out, the conversation lasts 47 large and closely printed pages in which nothing whatever happens except in the flashbacks. These pretend to give the background of the controversy between the two. Against its will, this department read every one of these pages, and emerged with a confused idea that Dr. Addams had married Louise for her poise, most likely. This is probably quite wrong, but until Mr. Fineman eschews being an artist and gets down to story telling in good A-B-C fashion we shall never be sure. The second most important "but" is that Mr Fineman insists one a number of irrelevant sermons. The longest and least convincing is the one centering about the Jew who works with Dr. Addams in the foundation supported by Dr Addam's father-in-law. The novel will offend "many intelligent Jews, some of whom will feel that the constant obtrusion of the refugee problem may work against its satisfactory solution. There is no denying the quality of Fineman's writing, his sincerity, or the fact that he knows something of science. Unfortunately, there is no denying also that his novel is a bore much of the time. GOOD HEALTH By Logan Clendening, M. D. NEW VITAMIN IN JAUNDICE \ TUST how many there are of those magic sub- J stances known as vitamins, which are present in all well-balanced diets and which keep so many essential functions in our bodies going, we do not know yet. The first one which was identified has come to be known as vitamin B. Soon after its discovery vitamin A, the anti-infective agent; C, the anti-scurvy agent; D, the anti-rickets agent, were added to the list. B itself was broken up into several divisions, one of which is known as vitamin G. Many other vitamins have been suggested, but all have not been accepted by the scientific world. The latest to come into the picture are vitamins K and E. Vitamin K could not have I been discovered until quite lately because we did not know J enough of the functions over r», TM ,,.! i which it exerts control to rec- Dr. Clendenlng ag nj ze it For many years it has "been known that patients with jaundice have a tendency to bleed excessively, but the exact mechanism of this derangement has not been understood. Within recent years it has been found that it is a particular property of bile to form compounds with a number of substances in the intestine so that they can be absorbed. In jaundice bile is absent from the intestine and, therefore, this union and absorption does not take place and the body is deprived of substances valuable in nutrition. In experimental animals, such as rats, in which the bile has been deviated away from the intestinal tract, it is found that a slight cut or injury, such as snipping off the tail, will result in bleeding so prolonged and severe as to cause death. When, however, bile is fed by mouth to'these animals, along with substances which contain vitamin K, this tendency to hemorrhage is stopped. Vitamin K is, therefore, considered to be a factor which in some way increases ability of the blood to clot Vitamin K is present in most normal diets. The best sources of vitamin K are green leaves. Many substances rich in other vitamins are very poor sources for vitamin K. Thus, cereals, carrots, potatoes, lemon juice, yeast, cod liver oil and wheat germ oil are poor sources. Tomatoes, hemp seed and soya bean are moderately good sources The best source of vitamin K in the vegetable world is probably alfalfa", and I mentioned a story m this column last f all which illustrated the actual use of alfalfa as a medicine for a patient who was very sick with jaundice. In a natural human diet, of course, alfalfa is out, and we probably get our vitamin K from such green vegetables as we eat, from tomatoes and meat. It probably takes very little vitamin K to supply our needs. _ The practical importance of these researches is very considerable for the surgeon. The surgeon has always been afraid to operate on a patient with jaundice on account of danger of hemorrhage. Now it is known that vitamin K can be introduced into the blood and will reduce the tendency to hemorrhage.

Squash or Oak? think Ward Hamilton, in J the current issue of his -- school's p u b l i c a t i o n , "Hamilton Highlights," struck upon a most effective story to illustrate his point that the world today calls for trained men and women. It had to do with James A. Garfield and his days as president of Hiram college in Ohio. A man brought his son to be enrolled as a student, explaining that he wanted the boy to take a short course. "My son can never t a k e all those studies," said the father "He wants to get through more quickly. Can't you arrange it for him?" "Oh, yes,", said Mr. Garfield. He can take a short course. It all depends on what you want to make of him. When God wants to make an oak he takes a hundred years but He only takes two months to make a squash." Not Superstitious -- am glad and I think the : world is' richer because Howard Carter, the distinguished archaeologist, took no 'stock in the warning carved deep in stone by the ancient pharaohs: Death shall come on swift wings to him that toueheth the tomb of a pharaoh." It was just so much tommyrot to Mr. Carter. In 1S22 Carter came upon the clue to King Tuts tomb in the Valley of Kings on the west bank of the Nile near Luxor. The discovery sent a shudder of expectancy throughout Egypt. With his British background, Lord Carnarvon, Howard Carter tunneled through the ancient stone doors to behold the glittering wonders of an Egyptian royal burial untouched by ghouls. Six weeks after the first explorations had been made in the crypt, Lord Carnarvon died of a mosquito bite. · But Carter kept on. Others of his native assistants died, but he kept boldly at it. He slept in the tomb of King Tut for weeks, had his meals served there, and guarded the treasures with his life. Sixteen years later, he died. If there was anything to the curse of the Pharaohs, Howard Carter didn't know it. Not for his defiance of .the curse of the Egyptian Scriptures was Howard Carter noted alone. His discovery cast a new light on Egypt, influenced American architecture for many years, and gave rise to a whole cycle of historical books. Emil Ludwig's "The Nile" and the currently popular "Joseph in Egypt" by Thomas Mann go back to the Howard Carter discoveries for their inspiration. The penetration of King Tut's tomb by Howard Carter had a profound effect on the literature, art, and history of our times. Luckily for this generation, How- OBSERVING ard Carter was coldly scientific enough and strong enough to shrug his shoulders at superstition, To Bolster Faith ; pass along this little story for the benefit of those who experience difficulty in believing that there is much of honor or plain honesty left in human nature: A woman was walking along a street in Philadelphia recently when a gust o£ wind blew a purse out of her hand. It contained $1,000 in bills of various denominations. The force of the purse striking the pavement caused it to open and the bills were blown hither and thither on the street Passersby came to the rescue of the woman. They searched the pavement for the scattered bills. Every one was recovered and returned to the owner. No more forceful illustration could be given of the sympathy and the honesty ot the rank and file than this aid extended to the Phdadelphia woman. Safety First Goal haven't been more pleased ; for a long time than I was when I opened an envelope bearing a Ventura postmark and read the following note: "We, the undersigned, wish to sincerely thank you for the grand bouquet you gave us. We appreciate your kindness in giving us such a good boost. Our goal shall always be 'Safety First' "Merrill Anderson, Dorance Rosendahl, Marjorie Glanville, Marilyn Momyer, Maxine Fetrow Maynard Dorow, Kermit Peterson, Ronald Swanson, Barbara Howard, Buddy Moore, Maxine Ringgenberg, Darlene Brager, Dixie Lee, Phyllis Momyer, Mary Glanville." Reference, of course was to the bouquet handed these pupils of Miss Charlotte Skene who one night last week broadcast a safety program from junior music hall, KGLO. To SPONSORS OF THE EDUCATIONAL FORUM--held Monday evening at the Mason City Y. M. C. A.

Hoskin For an answer to anj- question of fact wrlle ihe "Mason Clir G!ofe.n«r«. f '" How much floes ti cost to telephone from a ship? H. K. The:rate is $9 for a three-minute call when the ship is within 1,500 nautical miles of New York and $18 when it is over 1,500 nautical miles away. What is the origin of the word ,etiquct? K. 31. It is. derived from Louis XIVs custom of asking his guests to observe and keep within the eti- quet's (tickets or signs) which marked the garden beds and paths at Fonfainebleau. Who discovered paraffin? E. C. Dr. James Young, who in 1850 applied for his patent "to obtain . . . paraffin from bituminous shales by slow distillation." Is ihere any book that contains a list of American nicknames of places and people? E. H. "American N i c k n a m e s " by George Earlie Shankle, published by the H. V. Wilson Co., is a 599 page volume of nicknames giving their origin and significance. How much of pineapple Is canned? E. G. Approximately half of each fruit From the balance are obtained such-by products as juice, syrup, bran, citric acid, calcium citrate, alcohol, and carbon dioxide gas. What country formerly required that a man waving a ' r e d "flag should precede every automobile? L. S. England thought so little of the valu_e of .the new machine and considered it such a dangerous agent that a law, enforced until 1896, forbade automobiles to speed at more than four miles an hour, and required that a man waving a red flag should precede every power-driven vehicle. Did former President Hoover coin the term "rugged individualism?" J. L. In "The Challenge to Liberty" Mr. Hoover says: "While I can make no claim for having introduced the term 'rugged individualism,' I should be proud to have invented it. It has been used by American leaders for over a half- century in eulogy of those God- fearing men and women of honesty whose stamina and character and fearless assertion of rights led them to make their own way in life.'' MTio were the Jukes? S. T. Jukes was the fictitious name of a real family investigated in 1874 by the Prison association of New York. The family was descended from backwoods settlers and was for the most part composed of imbeciles and criminals. Scientific research leads us to believe that heredity played R large part in the careers of members of this family. It was found that out of 709 members during 75 years, 140 were criminals and 240 were paupers or imbeciles. Margaret Jukes \vas called the mother of criminals. F u r t h e r research shows that of 60 descendants whose histories have been traced only three attained prominence as honest citizens. Haw many nones In the skull? J. K. The skull consists of 22 bones 8 of which form the skeleton of the cranium and 14 that of the face. In what state were women first called on for jury service? C. McK. _ Michigan, in 1915, was a pioneer in granting jury service to women ivhen was Georgette crepe first used in fhe V. S. E. H. The name "Crepe Georgette" was registered in the U. S. patent office in 1913 by Haas Brothers who introduced crepe in New- York City in 1912. . W J 10 -J vas the flrst ma" *° to to the North Pole? M. H. Admiral Robert E.
