REED, fiery former democratic senator from Missouri, has the floor. Said he, in a recent Chicago speech: "The most foolish of all animals Is the man who because of temporary adversity would tear down the temple of liberty and out of its ruins erect a. citadel of tyranny in the hope he may therein find refuge. Certain it is that the citadel will soon become a prison where he will languish in chains. "'There never has been a benevolent despotism. When liberty ends, slavery begins. No man is free, upon whose brain government can place a shackle. No man is free upon whose tongue government can place a bridle. No man is free who is restrained by government in the choice of his vocation. _ "With equal force, let it be said, no man is free who is obliged to rely on government for guidance. And no man is free who is dependent on government 01 "Paternalism in government is only possible when liberty of the individual is limited or annihilated Paternalism is, of necessity, favoritism, and favoritism to one class can only be accomplished by despoliation of other classes. "All despotisms have certain attributes in common. They rise in a time of adversity. They pretend to have a complete cure for existing evils and misfortunes. The leaders assert their love for the people and their purpose" to rescue them from peril. They declare they ar moved by the loftiest motives and inspired by the holiest purposes. "But they always declare that the ordinary machinery of government is inefficient or corrupt, and that the people are incapable of remedying the wrongs. "Back of that lies the philosophy that man is incapable of governing himself, or regulating his own conduct, hence that he must be the ward of the government, that he must be protected, cared for, and assisted. ,. ,. ,. ,,,,, "Such is paternalism, and paternalism, itself despotic, soon discards its amiable pretenses. It becomes a tyranny of cruelty, of plunder, of corruption, and of Senator Reed was talking about Hitlerism. He might well have been discussing subjects closer home The time to fight for liberty is while we still have it. When it has gone it is too late. -- Â·F THE BEH ACQUITTAL a good many, the Carleton Beh acquittal will be interpreted as recognition by a jury of the right of an individual, or an individual firm, to make an aggressive bid for business even when in compel! tion with a governmental agency. There isn't anj question but what the Des Moines investment broke did that. More and more it is coming to light that the entin case was conceived and developed in the Washington office charged with 'administering the public works funds. With mounting evidence of graft on a whole sale basis, the cabinet member held responsible fo such administration understandably was seeking a spectacular case to hold up as "horrid example." Iowa seemed to offer the most promise along this line. In this key suit, tried by a prosecuting attornej who repeatedly insisted on more persuasive evidenc before consenting to grand jury action, the govern ment plan obviously has hit a rock. It will be most hi teresting to watch the procedure from now on. Wha will be the legal and political repercussions? Because the lieutenant governor is cast in the rol of "accessory" in the federal grand jury indictmen against him, it appears unlikely that his prosecutip will be undertaken. If the man accused of the princi pal crime is freed, there would be no basis for ar "accessory" accusation. AN AIRMAILPROBLEM O N TOP of all the other difficulties which the gov eminent has encountered in dealing with the air mall situation is a new hazard arising from the or ganization of a flock of new companies to bid for con tracts under the terms announced by the postoffic department. Many of these concerns are without experience in the operation of commercial aircraft and possess littl or no modern equipment to insure safe flying- Some o them even have no planes and are scurrying abou seeking to buy up whatever machines they can ge which can qualify under the specifications calling fo a maximum speed of 110 miles an hour. ' To guard against deterioration in the service, th government will have to scrutinize closely all offer received, not only as to price but as to ability of th respective bidders to furnish safe, efficient, and unin terrupted service. It cannot afford to accept proposal from irresponsible concerns hastily formed, inade quately financed, and lacking in suitable equipmen for giving satisfactory service. The lives of an even dozen army pilots constitute the price of "Farley's Folly" up to this time, in addition, of course, to an almost complete destruction of the airmail service. That tragedy will be continued if the ghastly lesson taught by untrained men flying unsuitable ships goes unheeded.

WHO IS BENEFITED? Allison Tribune: This week the prices of automobiles go up $35' to $250 a car. Who is benefited? Nobody. Who is the loser? The public which buys automobiles.

A Pertinent or Impertinent Suggesting that restoring benefits to disabled veterans was an open bid for the soldier vote is no more admirable than holding that placing seven or eight million persons on the federal payroll was a purchase of their votes.

BODY IS EFFICIENT AS MACHINE GROUP of my friends astonished me the other day by getting out one afternoon and playing scrub with an indoor baseball. So I suppose the time of year when outdoor exercise is more or less Inevitable has arrived. Whenever I discuss the question of exercise someone says to me, "I thought you didn't believe in exercise. Of course, I have never said any such thing. What 1 did say was that for some people exercise is a bad thing; for others it is beneficial. That aa age increases it is probably a good thing to cut down the amount of exercise one takes, and that youth cannot be brought back by exercise alone. But in spite of that, exercise is a pleasant and,-In many ways, a health giving thing. Essentially it is simply the body acting as machine. And what a wonderful efficienl Dr. Clendenlns machine the body is. A steam engine using coal wastes 90 per cent of the potential energy of its fuel, utilizing only 10 per cent; a gasoline motor using gasoline utilizes 20 per cent; the human muscle using food, mostly sugar, utilizes 33 per cent. This is next in efficiency to a galvanic battery, which is able to utilize 90 per cent of the potential energy supplied to it. All the work that our bodies do in the world is done by this extremely efficient machine, which in its ultimate unit is a muscle fibril and which operates by contracting its l e n g t h partly using chemical energy in the form of sugar anc partly electrical energy. The waste w h i c h machines have to lose comes mostly from inertia and friction and against these two things the human muscle bu^ die is very wel p r o t ected. T h e friction which it has to overcome is largely friction in joints or one bone moving over an other and nature, by various means, has managed to reduce this to a very low figure. Tomorrow we will consider something of the ac tion of the muscle as a machine. ONCE OVERS By J. J. MUNDI' BE THE PEACE-MAKER As a card-player you may have been in games li which fights, or near fights, occurred which inlgh have been averted by a word from you. Instead of acting as a peacemaker, you did no say something which might have smoothed out th' point under dispute. In fact, your manner added fuel to the angerec condition of the disputing players. You did this because you would have enjoyed see ing these two men come to blows. There may have been instances of this sort involv ing friends. As a result of their dispute, a friendship of man years' standing may have been broken. Was the passing amusement worth the result? It is of no small import when two men engage i: fisticuffs. One or both may receive serious injuries--pos sibly permanent disfigurement. If you permit this thing to happen because your animal desire to see a fight, you are not a rea fellow. ONE MINUTE PULPIT--Woe to rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me: and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin. --Isaiah 30:1 EARLIER DAYS Being a Dally Compilation of InterrKtlnK Items from the "Ten, Twenty and Thirty Yearn Ajo" FlleÂ» of the Olobc-Guictte.

In re- lecting on this condition I call to lind several Mason City homes hich a few years ago arrested my ttcntion immediately but since ave lost some of their appeal and wonder if their rundown condition has not been the cause. An acquaintance whose business akes him into many homes tells ,e that about the same condition revails inside. It seems that nearly veryone has been waiting for better imes so long that a state of near habbiness has invaded our sur- oundings without our realizing it. Let's fix up! --o-am in receipt of a note from J. TJ. in which complaint is lodged against the proprietor if an outlying grocery store. It eems this groceryman has declined o accept scrip at any time and re- ently he refused to accept a dollar if the money even though all the tamps had been attached. I have already paid my respects to those who have shied at accepting their air share In this communtiy pro- ect. I would not expect such persons o understand that the fully stamped scrip dollar can be taken to the bank and exchanged for a dollar in currency. In this connection, it is nteresting to note that the scrip ssue is being redeemed now at the Â·ate of more than a hundred dollars a day. --o-rank with fishing and mush' room hunting a sport I was introduced to a year or two ,go--fossil-hunting at the clay- banks of the Winnebago river eight miles southeast of Mason City. There is an apparently inexhaustible supply of fossilized shell-life in the anks there and the view to be hac rom the top of the cliff simply isn'l surpassed anywhere in this part ol lie state.

The average theater re viewer would be speechless if de prived of its use in his descriptio: of Fredric March's acting. have here some statements all parents of boys may well ponder. From five years ot Je through 14, more boys arc llled by accidents than by all the sual communicable diseases com- ned, including Influenza, pneu- ionla and tuberculosis. The acci- ent rate of boys at this age is Imost two and one-half times reater than that of girls. From lo o 49, the male death rate from vio- ence la more than four times that f the female, and exceeds any other ause of death. These figures would certainly in- Icate the need for further educa- lon on the part of parents and pos- ibly on the part of the boya them- elves in regard to safety. It seems rather odd that we get wildly excited about an epidemic f some contagious disease, yet re- oain complacent about the constant nd much more dangerous epidemic --accidents. am sure that readers after perusing the following from tlie editor of a rural weekly vill be more considerate In the fu- ure of us who have to do our writing stint: "Getting out a high class family ournal is no picnic. If I print jokes, oiks say I'm silly; If I don't, they ay I'm too serioua. If I publish ori- nnal matter, they say I lack variety; f I publish tilings from other papers they say I'm too lazy to write. If I don't go to church they say I'm a leathen; if I do go I'm a hypocrite. If I stay in the office, I ought to be out rustling the news; if I rustle the news, I am cot attending to business at the office. If I wear old clothes they say I'm a sloven; if I wear new ones, they say I must be making a pile of money, or the clothes aren't paid for. What in thunderation ia a poor editor to do anyhow? Like as not somebody will say I swiped this article from some other paper. So I did." shall be Interested in the results of the Chicago Tribune's new c a m p a i g n against hoodlumism and gang rule in that city. It proceeds from an assumption that the criminal lawyer is as much a factor in crime as the gangster himself. Operating on this theory, the Tribune Is going over the records and publicizing the lawyers who are found behind the scenes in every case where a gangster is involved. If the legal profession will not place the penalty of scorn and contempt on these unsavory characters, perhaps the public will. TODAY IN HISTORY Notables Born This Date--Wilbur Wright, b. 1867.
