SUBSCRIPTION BATES IMPORTANT DECISION e decision reached Wednesday to put the state of Iowa behind a resistance to dismemberment n ahead. of the M. St L. railroad may prove an turn to this important matter. After a presentation "case by'a group of Crested Iowa c^e^s headed by former Gov. John Hammill of Brift and. Burt Thompson of Forest City, the state railroad com- SSon, with the obvious blessing of the state executive council, let it be known that the necessary legal talent would be made available to insure an effective representation of the Iowa viewpoint at the various Searings on this dismemberment proposal in the months Itf'was the contention of the delegation at Des Moines Wednesday that Iowa has a very real and a very sizable stake in the litigation which, if unresist- ed would result in the sale of this valuable railroad property for scarcely more than one-eighth of its appraised value. Approximately 60 per cent of the track- Le of the M. St L. railroad is in Iowa and about the same percentage of the line doomed for abandonment if the dismemberment proposal goes through is situated in this state. _ What has been accomplished m the relatively brief time under the current receivership management constitutes the best support conceivable for the claim of B. J. Drummond, head of the traffic department of the Mason City Chamber of Commercej that under a reorganization plan, with proper scaling down of. white elephant indebtedness, the M. St. L. system can be made to pay its way and continue serving virtually all, if not all, of its present territory in Iowa and in the other states. A congressman is reported to be giving earnest consideration to a plan under which all citizens would receive $200 a month until they reach the age of 60 and become eligible for the 5200 a month of the Townsend plan. "Blond Sobs and Tells How She Loved Man She Killed " says Chicago headline. An unfortunate type of emotional instability, poor girl, the jury will too probably find. Indiana recently experienced a dust storm and a flood coincidentally. A bad blew and a bad flow at the same time, as it were. Bv this time Governor Hoffman should have himself set for the solid kidnaper vote of the country. More persons than ever voted for any president are on relief in America today. Political option: New deal or old constitution? The PROS and CONS DAILY SCRAP BOOK by Scott Mr. Drummond also brought up another vital consideration when he recalled that the M. St. L. has saved this one community--Mason City--at least 5100,000 a year in its freight bill. The fact that Ma- Bon City is an intermediate pom' between Chicago and' the twin cities on this one line has been a fulcrum for obtaining a fair freight rate, in comparison with the metropolitan points with which we are competitive. What is true here in such marked degree applies to the -remainder of the state in a real sense. Abandonment of a few well chosen stretches of track- small though they might be--could in a few short years cost Iowa more in added freight charges than the amount involved in this whole purchase plan. bury^Pa., By every test, Iowa has a deep-seated interest in ty record, what happens to the M. St. L. and it augurs well that this interest is going to be protected in a serious ·way from this point on. The course decided upon by. y^" the state couldie justified "as a matter of preserving ialy . an appreciable item of tax revenue but the issues'go much further and deeps*- than this. Transportation service for dozens of Iowa communities and the liveli- nood of scores of railroad workers, in no sense blam- tioned passen able for the managerial shortcomings which have be- wc ll heated, set their company in the past, are the more important considerations involved. BEYOND PARTISANSHIP N OTHING is more reassuring in the contemporary government scene than the fact that the obvious over-stepping of constitutional bounds by Senator Black and his associate delvers into private communications has brought as bitter denouncement from democrats as from republicans. The revulsion against the methods of this committee has transcended partisanship. "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects shall not be violated," says the fourth amendment of that stirring catalog of private immunities to government tyranny. Nearly everybody is aghast and shocked by the Black committee's shameless violation of that provision, and by the distortion of its powers by which the federal communications commission aided Black to accomplish this invasion of private rights. Senator Ashurst's address one day lately; demanding respect for the bill of rights and the personal · guarantees in the constitution, was not the first denunciation of the Black committee's methods from a powerful democrat, and we trust it will not be the last. These things should make Americans who believe In government by the people and not by whip-cracking cheka-methods sit up and concern themselves. It is not only the rich or the "malefactors of great wealth" who are hurt when the bill of rights goes down. Every citizen has lost his immunity from unjust persecution and his right to his day in court. That is the way down which Russian, Italian and German liberties went to destruction. Once gone, freedom can only be regained by bloodshed and violence. It can be preserved only by vigilance, and by indignant repudiation o£ the vicious maxim that circumstances alter cases. If elected officials can make laws to fit special cases regardless of the constitutional rule, we are all slaves whenever the men in power see fit to clamp on the chains. A FRIEND OF'MASON CITY F RANK T. VASEY will ever hold a place in the grateful memory of this community by reason of his twelve years of residence here and the contribution made by him in that time. Other former neighbors have paid tribute to this remarkable man in the news columns of the Globe-Gazette. We have in this space in times past. Here, however, we merely wish to recall that Mr. Vasey came to Mason City to find no more than an ordinary system of public education. When he left a dozen years later, answering a call to an enlarged field « service at Springfield, HL, the Mason City schools were second to none in the country in a city of this size. That can still be said. In large measure the excellence of our schools today stands as a monument to the vision, the genius and the character of Frank T. Vasey. Mason dty- ans mourn his untimely passing as friends who have received far more tbaa they gave to Mr. Vasey. AMERICA'S ROYAL FAMILY Kewanee, HI., Star-Courier: Washington will long remember the Roosevelts for the use they have made of their white house privileges. When the president decides to go home for a Hyde Park week-end, the white house charters a special train. When the president wants to see his son join an exclusive club at Harvard the white house secretariat orders a special train to New Haven. When Mr. Roosevelt felt that criticism of his cruises on Mr. Astor's yacht became too sharp he expropriated a neat 334 ton coast guard patrol cutter for Florida fishing trips. When Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., wanted to greet his girl friend (Ethel du Pont, heiress to the chemical fortune) he called up the coast guard. Coast guard cars complete with motorcycle police escort, shrieked through New York with young Franklin. A coast g-uard amphibian was waiting at New York airport to ferry Franklin, Jr., to the side of the S. S. Carinthia, which halted to pipe him aboard for a visit with Miss du Pont. (The coast guard reported young Franklin s dash as a training trip".) The first lady's travels would add another considerable chapter to the Roosevelt record. The air service is at her command for a flight to Philadelphia, a trip to Warm Springs, or a jaunt to Hyde Park. Perhaps a president and his family should invoke all these prerogatives, but they never did until the Roosevelts reached the white house. There were presidential junkets before R,oosevelt and there will be presidential trips after Roosevelt, but they may never eclipse the Roosevelt travel style. Hoover used to sneak away occasionally to his rough camp on the Rapidan for a rest. Coolidge would have been shocked if his aides chartered a special train to go to Plymouth for a week-end. The Roosevelt family is setting a real pace for presidents, a pace which only royalty in England has ever reached. If the Roosevelts could have the WPA build them a Buckingham palace in Chevy Chase, a PWA Windsor castle in New England, and toss in the cruiser Indianapolis to follow the Harvard-Yale races, the presidency would have even more glamour--and expense.

WELL TIMED BENEFITS Emmetsburg Reporter: Chester C. Davis, farm administrator for President Roosevelt, made a rather startling statement Saturday while in conference with the subcommittee on appropriations in the house of representatives at Washington,-D. C. A press dispatch from the nation's capital- states that in discussing payments to farmers under the new soil program, Davis said: "Payments would start pouring into the country during September .well before election time-. They doubtless will reach their peak at election time and should taper off during February and end by next June." Judge for yourself, Mr. Iowa Voter. MASON CITY'S CONGRESS ASPIRANT Cresco Times: Charles H. Gelo, veteran newspaper man of Mason City, is a candidate for the republican nomination for congress in this district. Some 40 years ago Mr. Gelo as a young- man was connected with a paper in Mason City and at one time was on the staff of the old St. Paul Globe. Of late years he has been engaged in the insurance business. Mr. Gelo was in Cresco for a short time yesterday arranging to have his nomination papers circulated. EFFICIENCY OF BODILY CONTROL \\TE SPOKE yesterday of eur wonderful secondary W nervous system, not part of the brain and spinal cord and ordinary nerves, but the nervous system tliat works while we sleep and adjusts all the internal functions of the body so that they will work smoothly. II it were not for this series of nerve ganglia we would be mixed up Indeed--our digestive system might begin to move the wrong way; all the blood vessels in the skin might dilate so that most of the blood in the body was stagnated there, and the consequent refrigeration would drop our temperatures to the point where life would 'be extinct Indeed, occasionally we see examples of the paralysis of this system, as when a man receives a heavy blow in the abdomen and goes into a condition known as "shock," with profuse, clammy perspiration, deadly pallor of the entire EARLIER DAYS FROM CLOBE-OAZEIIE FILES Or. Cl«nd«ninf COMPLETE CANDOR IN POLITICS M. A. Asgaard in Lake Mills Graphic: As to the conduct of the campaign, there will be no "mud slinging" as far as we are concerned. We are not posing as a candidate who has been "urged" to cast his hat into the ring. We have the desire to serve, and if it meets with the approval of the republican voters of this district, we shall do our utmost to serve conscientiously and well. CHARGE IT TO ADVERTISING Sioux City Journal: An lowan who owed 1 cent in state Income tax and spent three cents to send his return by mail -to the board of assessment and review is not out much. He got several dollars' worth of newspaper space about it surface, feeble, rapid heart beat, and unconsciousness. If death occurs not a single injury can be found in any internal organ to account for it. He had died a physiological death from paralysis of his automatic nervous system. A famous example, which made the system familiar to the newspaper readers of my youth, was when Fitzsimmons hit Corbett in the solar plexus. The solar plexus of ganglia is part of the automatic nervous system. It is well that we have some tests to determine the efficiency of this controlling body. They are based on two or three of the most important functions of tie automatic nervous system. One is control of sweating. It is possible to teat very delicately the degree and amount of sweating in the body by painting the skin with an alcoholic solution of cobalt blue. The patient is then put into a heat cabinet which has an environmental temperature of 130 degrees Fahrenheit. In the presence of moisture the blue stain is changed to red, and the contrasting colors give a graphic representation of the amount and location of sweating. For instance, there is a condition in which the blood pressure falls with changes of posture. In these patients, the sweat test shows that sweating occurs only on certain small areas of the skin surface, and this is undoubtedly associated with irregular dilation of the blood vessels of the body surface. Another test of measuring the efficiency of dilation or constriction of the small blood vessels is called the "cold presser test" One hand is immersed above the wrist in ice water for one minute. Reading of the blood pressure in the opposite arm is taken every 15 second! An increase in the blood pressure should occur. After the arm is removed from the water the blood pressure should return to its normal level within two minutes. These with several other tests, have been deviled to give us information about that important regulator of our functions, the automatic nervous system. Thirty Years Ago-Mrs. Mary E. Demo is enjoying a visit from her father whc arrived yesterday from Cherokee. The farmers of Plymouth and vicinity met today and organized a co-operative movement. Officers elected were John R. Clause, president: William Shesa, vice president; John Sutton, treasurer, and A. M. Holroyd, secretary. Myron Stephenson left today for Ames where he will re-enter the state agricultural school. Nelson Van Wie, who has been spending the past few months with relatives in Clinton, returned home S Ralph'stanbery has decided to make Mason City his permanent home and has arranged to enter the law office of his father. Twenty Years Ago-AMSTERDAM--The Dutch army has mobilized and actual maneuvers are being held along the sea Mrs. E. J. Scott of Emmetsburg is in the city for a visit with relatives. Frank Svoigjart of Swaledale. a native of Hungary, applied at the county clerk's office today for citizenship into the United States. Mrs. J. Wannager returned yesterday from California where she has been spending the winter. Mrs. E. D. Esksert of Northwood is in the city shopping today. Attorney Earl Smith and Clarence F. Long, man- of the Martin Manufacturing company, have A RECOGNITION THAT WAS WELL BESTOWED ^-^ congratulate t h e Kiwanis (88^ club for its formal recogni- '©5*" tion of the work done by Evron Karges, boys work secretary of the Y. M. C. A., in developing the annual boys .hobby show since its inception 10 years ago. This is one of the finest of the many fine hits of service performed by this liuman dynamo during his residence in Mason City. In a very real sense the Kiwanis club was spokesman for a grateful community in this little citation Thursday. Gratifying ag this expression was, I still venture that the greatest compensation that comes to Mr. Karges is the "Hi, Beef" that is shot at him by just about every youngster as he walks down the street. They all know him; they all like him--and with abundant reason. Evron Karges has been a friend to the youth of Mason City, which is another way of saying that he has lived useful life, with a reward in satisfaction that isn't expressible in dollars and cents. --o-HURT FEELINGS AM) SWELL HEAD BELATED JMB. am interested in the connec- iSpgtion between swelled heads «ss^ and hurt feelings developed by Robert Quillen, Aunt Het's creator, in the following from his Fountain Inn, S. Car., Tribune: "When I was young and proud people were forever hurting my feelings--not strange people, but my own kith and kin and the dearest o friends. It happened so often that : went around with my Up sticking out about half the time. "Then I began to notice other people who got their feelings hurt, and thereby learned a valuable lesson I noticed that people who hadn 1 been bragged on very much, an hadn't done anything to attract notice, never had their feelings hur enough to cause pouting. Whateve the' world did to them seemed al right. "But let a fellow lead his class » school or win some athletic competi tion or become popular with th girls, or let him in later years become chairman of some committe or superintendent of the Sunda; school or village dog catcher, and t a little while he began to break ou with hurt feelings. Somebody of fended him and set him to poutin nearly every day. "His feelings were hurt becaus he was sensitive and he was sensi tive because his head was sweilec When he pouted, you could almos hear him saying to himself: 'The don't seem to realize who I am. I'm an important citizen, entitled to re spect and consideration, and the treat me as though I were an or dinary nobody. It's an outrage.'' "That cured me". If I . couldn have my feelings-hurt without r vealing my vanity, I wouldn't ha\ them hurt at all. Hurt feelings, af ager g-one to Los Angeles, Cal., on a business trip. Mr and Mrs. O. W.

Just keep our head size normal, and people will seldom give you reason to pout.'' _o-IPEN WATER DANGER TO OUR TINY TOTS ^ "submit this true tale as $!. one to think about before warm weather actually ar- ives for keeps In 1936," writes L. "Springtime turns the young man's fancy--and in the case of onnie Carlson, age 18 months, it vas toward the neighbor's fish jond. 'Spring was something wonder- ul in the eyes of little Donnie. It was the first time in his life he had iad the opportunity to get out in lie yard and toddle around on not oo steady legs. Many wonderful things came into view as he wandered aimlessly--but the most wonderful of all was the fish pond with its alluring colored rocks sparkling under fresh water. "Donnie tumbled headfirst into all this alluring beauty and came up threshing his tiny arms like a veteran swimmer. A grocery truck driver passing the pond saw the water churning and stopped amazed that gold fish were that lively this year. Then he saw a blue cap sink to the bottom of the pool. "A few seconds later the grocery clerk hauled the young man out and rushed him to his mother. A few days in bed was the only penalty Donnie paid. Other youngsters are getting by equally luckily, but some day no grocery clerk is going to be happening by when Donnie or a hundred others of his size are in the neighbor's fish pond, the creek or tfie street." --o-NO WONDER POLICE GAZETTE FADED AWAY -^ am impressed every time i j§ pick up the brown section of _E**a Sunday newspaper that there's more of dishabille and the risque generally in it than there was in the Police Gazette of twenty-five years ago. That publication was known only to barbershops and places not frequented by women. But, like the barbershops themselves, our standards and tastes have changed. Whether for better or for worse may be debated but that there has been a change is not open to question. Now we invite the once shunned literature into our parlors for the whole family to view.

MAKING A LIVING F 'S a man's job to make a living, for himself, for his family his wife and his cmlflren. Making a living usually means having a job, earning money to pay for meat, bread, milk, rent, insurance and a little fun But sometimes a man does this, earns plenty of money for all the material needs of himself and those dependent upon him, and finds that though he has made a living for them, in one sense neither he nor thev are happy. He has not truly made a living for them. A livtag is something more than food for the mouth, a bed for the tired body, a roof over the head, protection against discomfort, poverty and hunger. A living is something that's not so easy to set down on piper, in words . . . A living is an attitude, a point of view, a way of healthy happiness . . . A man may make a material living for his family and still find that there is more death than life in their existence. A living is a vital thing, a splendid vibration, a joy in being alive. You can help some other human being, slightly or greatly, help him to live deeply, widely, but after all every man must make his own V1 ?f'he is bored, he cannot make a good living. If his daily bread is self-pity, he cannot make a living tor himself or anyone else. If he feeds on bitterness, distrust, envy and arrogance, nowhere in the world is a living for him. He starves in a world of plenty . . . A man says to himself "it is not my fault. All my strength, all my energy, must be used in stark effort to make enough money, in making that kind of living. I have no more time" . . . It's the saddest confession any man or woman can make ,,·., . a confession of failure.
