On one hand Premier Chamberlain of Great Britain and Foreign Minister Bonnet of France are bidding for huge stakes with the Burgos government. On the other hand, Mussolini and Hitler ore directing every card Franco plays in his high-handed game. In the last analysis the bankers in London and Paris will dictate terms. Nazi and fascist troops have cleared the way, but the bankers will have the most to say about Spain's future. Franco is using the same temptations to in- 'duce surrender in Madrid as he used in getting Catalonia to capitulate. His war planes are showering Madrid area offering "bread and peace." To a populace half-starved and continually bombed for years this has a fearfully potent ring. There are still 2,000,000 under arms. Spain is still drenched in the Wood and tears of 700,000 war dead. The Paris government has been told by Franco that the recent victory parade of Italian troops in Barcelona was the "farewell appearance" of fascist fighters on Spanish soil. This is the bait that Franco is using in fishing for support from England and France. Both Italy and Germany have been pouring men, Munitions and planes into Spain for years, and it is not likely that they would vanish at the snap of a finger. Mussolini and Hitler have no more pulled out of Spain than Japan has pulled out of Manchuria. Franco is bound to be a fascist puppet, no matter how much- he flirts with Paris and London for funds. ' The "appeasement" of General Franco is proceeding at top speed. England doesn't relish the thought o£ fascist arms at the back door of Gibraltar any more than France welcomes fascist guns beyond its southern border. Only antidote for the blood and powder which Mussolini and Hitler burned in Spain is liberal reconstruction loans, which General Franco needs more than the surrender of Madrid. As the auctioneer, bartering for better, terms, Franco has been a complete success. » * » A Hero in Solitary Confinement »pHE Berlin congregation of the Jesus Christus -*· Lutheran church in suburban Dahlem recently conducted a special service of intercession for their pastor, the Rev. Dr. Martin Niemoller, who has begun his second year in a nazi concentration camp. Dr. Niemoller, the militant Lutheran pastor and Germany's World war submarine hero, remains in solitary confinement at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp 15 miles outside Ber- It was on July 1, 1937, that Dr. Niemoller was thrown into a nazi terror camp because he had the courage to acknowledge in his pulpit a God greater than Hitler. Because he led the campaign of the Confessional synod, nazis bottled him UD indefinitely. On March 2, 1938, after languishing almost a year in solitary confinement without trial or the knowledge of charges against him, Dr. Niemoller was tried and sentenced to seven months' imprisonment. He was fined $600 for attacking the leaders of the state and using his pulpit improperly. His congregation paid the fine immediately, and his prison sentence was soon wiped out No sooner were these technical matters concluded than Dr. Niemoller became a pawn of the nazi secret police. He was kept in solitary confinement in Berlin like Austria's Schuschnigg Once a month he gets a privileged glimpse of his wife and one of their six children, and then is thrust back into darkness for 30 days. No religious martyr of antiquity suffered more cruelly than this German Lutheran pastor who was the war hero of Germany and the leader ot one of Berlin's most loyal congregations His imprisonment without cause or explanation is one of the worst indictments o£ Hitlerism. * · * Giving Business a Chance /pHE American Lumberman has come through with this wholly intriguing plan for the encouragement of initiative in creating business activity and simulating employment through an amendment to the income tax law: Suppose a. manufacturing ronr-pm ie ^tei- ^, Tiing along-making a htt?! mon e part of^te time and losing a little money part of the time --and such a concern would organize a promotional ranvnvirm ,,,,,-a ggjfajjj .- *"««iu --over and above what it is now spendin" --and such a promotional campaign resulted in an shewed am ° ° f Sales ' S0 that tee boolS --as a result of this campaign ~men to thS TM!f "H Wa -? able to add additional men to the payroll, and make a profit ^fr^t i er s " ppt ? se t 113 * *e government would fn J P = ^ a ?' to Eive ' on the basis ° E *is showing, a certain amount of credit on the concern's income tax for the extra sum, over and aC4 Sf Ifi 3 n0rmal S ? ent on P r °TMtion, with scate aUowance Corked out on a graduated --this,credit might possibly amount to one-half m!n irtrfl ^ .^Pending upon the number of men added and the profit made. ^iore men on payrolls!

PROS and CONS Some Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchanges If Dizzy's Arm Is Right Rockford Register: Encouraging news for all Cub fans is the announcement from the great Jerome Herman "Dizzy" Dean that the $185 000 right arm is "better than ever."

The first day of the approach of spring -was presented to Mason City Sunday and with lowering skies and damp walks and pavements, hundreds of persons took the first opportunity to enjoy the outdoor air without danger of frost-bitten ears or toes. Streets were crowded Saturday afternoon and evening. .TEN YEARS AGO-At the regular meeting of Mason City lodge No. 375, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, held Friday evening the following officers were elected: Exalted ruler, Harold F. Wilson; esteemed leading knight, S. A. Grow; esteemed loyal knight, D. H. Fitzpatrick; esteemed lecturing knight, Joe A. Hoyt; secretary, R. A. Washburn; treasurer C ' A. Parker; tiler, W. W. \Vilcox, and trustee, George R. Ludeman. Although a minimum of 20 men has been employed at the task of clearing the streets o£ snow and ice since early in January and a crew of 30 has comprised 24 hour shifts of this work during the past three weeks, Mason City streets continue to be in a bad condition. Cars and trucks are getting stuck in practically every section.. Literary Guidepost By John Selby Some good fiction for a world that needs it ' badly -A NEW YORK newspaperman named Edwin ·"Lanham has written a number of first rate novels, not the kind the literary logrollers make mouths over, but the solid kind that people like when they buy them, but forget to buy too often. The Stricklands" is another. It's about a red headed roughneck in Oklahoma, the woman he loved, and his folks. (Little, Brown; $2.50.) Second Book: Dorothy Canfield is too shrewd a practitioner to miss the chance of expressing herself on the issue of race prejudice. She has reduced a world problem to the dimensions of a Vermont village in "Seasoned Timber," and she knows both the world and Vermont. Her book is an intelligent expression of the values she discusses, and a firm and well thought out novel as well. (Harcourt, Brace; $2.50.) Third Book: Hans Habe has taken a facet of the · same problem ss the text of his "Three Over the Frontier." It's the text of the year, apparently. ihis is a book on the problem of the political exile and virtBes ° f its GOOD HEALTH By Logan Clendening, M. D. PEPPINESS PROM VITAMIN E TTITAMIN E might be called the love vitamin. It » _should | be the sort of thing that we use in the spring to regulate our general peppiness, love's young dream, etc. I remember how the old ladies used to talk down in the Ozarks along about this time of year they still do it so far as I know, but I don't go down there this time of year any more: I only go down in the fishing season.) They would say, "Sarah Jane don't look so pert. She kinda lovesick but I think I can fix her up when I go out and gather me a mess o'greens for the salt rheum on my hands." · It must have been vitamin E that made Sarah Jane feel so much better because vitamin E is found in leafy vegetables, lettuce, legumes, corn, oats, I barley, spinach, watercress, I dandelion greens, etc. That is [the very sort of thing that the I old ladies would get when they E greens Dr. Clenflenin* Vitamin E has something to do with nutrition and reproduction fertility and the activity of the thyroid and the pituitary glands, all of which nave something to do with the chemistry of love The vitamins, it may be necessary to repeat lor the reader who has not followed the articles this week closely, are those factors contained in a well-balanced diet which regulate a number of the functions of the body. They are not exactly foods and have no direct connection with the chemistry of nutrition except as control factors. Not much was known about them until a few decades ago when it was found that when certain functions of the body went wrong, these could be restored to normal by adding to the diet foods in which certain definite vitamins were known to be present. New ones are being discovered all the time.. Previously we discussed the new vitamin, vitamin K, the acuon of which seems to be well established. Vitamin E is also now a well-established vitamin. By "well established" I mean that there is no doubt of its existence and of its action. It is widely distributed in nature. The exact requirements of the amount that should be taken daily are not definitely determined yet, but it would appear that a well-balanced dietary would supply adequate amounts for both the male and the female. But in spite of its wide distribution in food products, it is suggested that many women do not receive an ample quantity of this factor to safeguard their pregnancies and reproductive A full list of the foods in which vitamin E is present is as follows: Wheat germ oil, wheat germ butter, eggs, lettuce, legumes, meat, milk, leafy vegetables, molasses, peanuts, palm oil, rice oil cottonseed oil, corn (whole), oats (whole), wheat (whole), nee (whole), barley, peas, spinach watercress and beans. .

It sometimes causes irritation of the kidney, but this passei away shortly after discontinuance of its use.

Fourth Book: Much beauty lies in Henry Myers strange story of the Children's Crusade called Our Lives Have Just Begun."

It seems o me. IFno is ever consumed 6y jealousy Those Quintuplets hereby and herewith de- jclare myself in favor of a trip to Toronto for those Dionne quintuplets. The parents and the doctor are insistent that if the British king and queen want to see the five sisters, they should come to Callender, the home of the quins. I'm not thinlcing of royal convenience at all. I wouldn't be greatly concerned if the plans called for their hitch-hiking to the backwoods hamlet where the quintuplets live. My concern is for the sisters, who are living the sheltered life ot a hot-house geranium. They've been exploited to a fare-you-well. They're entitled to a break. It's about time they were permitted to do some of the things that other children do. A trip to Toronto wouldn't be anything remarkable for a 5 year old girl in an average Ontario home. The world has had its fun out of this amazing phenomenon of babies on a litter basis. The little girls have furnished entertainment much as do the monkeys on an island in an amusement park. Withdrawal from that policy should be started. The way should be cleared for a normal childhood and a normal adulthood--marriage and a family--for each of the children. A continued sheltering from the world can mean only one thing-tragic unhappiness for five beautiful little girls. Patriotism's Essence j^^ have scolded much of late aB|? about the brand of patri- \fr~ otism which causes one to inquire: "What can I get from my country?" rather than: "What can I give my country." It's more than an appreciation of a "good thing." It's more than loving a cow for the milk it gives. Patriotism isn't selfishness. It's the reverse of that. It's a love of country that makes us want to make our country better. It makes us want to elevate the life of those who live about us. Patriotism knows no state boundaries. It doesn't seek to elevate Iowa at the expense o£ Minnesota or Illinois or Wisconsin. It's a. questionable patriotism which would elevate our country at the expense of another nation How far we can go in saving a world that shows no signs of wanting to be saved is another question, of course. The point here, however, is that patriotism should bottom ori giving rather than on getting. OBSERVING A Real Safety Code «·*. am gratified by the infor- 9Sp mation that North Iowa ^^ boys and girls by the hundred are enrolling in the Lone Ranger safety club as a result of an invitation extended on this increasingly popular adventure program from KGLO. These youngsters in their pledge for membership in the club commit themselves to the following safety code: 1. Not to cross any street except at regular crossings and to look both ways before crossing. 2. Not to play in the street 3. Always to tell the truth. 4. Never to cross any s t r e e t against red signal light 5. To be kind to birds and animals. 6. Not to hitch hike or ask strangers for rides. 7. To keep myself neat and clean. 8. Not to ride on running boards and fenders. 9. To promote safety at all times and encourage others to join this safety work. · 10. Always to obey my parents or guardians. ". t , 1 i ese b °ys and girls mean what they promise--and I believe they do--North Iowa will be made a safer, and therefore a happier, place in which to live. - --o-Athletic Interest JM^. challenge those who harp aS continually about over- «^ emphasis on athletics to come forward with a more health- lul interest as a substitute. This goes no less for those who occupy the bleachers than for the youngsters who do the actual playing America, if you ask me, could get wrapped up in many things worse than c-iean athletics. --o-- TF*TDay's To FATHER MAURICE SHEEHY, former Mason Cityan now on the faculty at Catholic university in Washington, D. C.--for the outstanding contributions he has made in his comparatively brief but active period in the service of the church. It was a fitting tribute to the zeal, energy and general character of Father Sheeny that he was one of two priests selected by the state department to make a recent "good will" tour which took them 18,000 miles on a South American voyage.
