E D I T O R I A L S -- Hickenfooper Seeks U. S. Senate Seat 'THE fact that by a well nigh 1 unanimous consent Bourke B. Hickenlooper has made Iowa one of its most able and effective governors of all times strikes us as being a rather good guarantee that he would do well by his stale in the Unitedj States senate. Gov. Hickenlooper this week announced his candidacy for the republican nomination. The announcement came as no surprise. It has been assumed for several months that this step -was in his mind. Most assuredly it has been in the minds of others. Mr. Hickenlooper's place in the affections of his fellow lowans is certainly unequaled at present and we recall no man "in public life within the past 30 years who enjoyed a wider popularity. Nobody seriously believes that any other republican would have even the proverbial Chinaman's chance against the governor for nomination. OENATOR Guy M. Gillette, whose ". strength admittedly is not confined to his own parly, has stated numerous times that he will not be a candidate lor re-election. He is under pressure to change 1 his mind. Whether-he will or not remains to be seen. While Senator Gillette doubtless could make a better r a c e than anybody else of his party in Iowa, the odds would greatly favor the governor in the run-off,,in our opinion, and for 2 reasons: 1. Mr. Hickenlooper has had the closer personal touch with Iowa voters these past few years. 2. In the past 1 elections, Iowa has revealed that it is strongly if not overwhelmingly republican. These are the. factors which would be weighed by the disinterested appraiser of the situation in determining betting odds if the Hickenlooper-Gillette contest were to develop. GOV. HICKENIjOOPER'S announcement, he stressed the LAND'OrTHE SETTING I point that America must "take a leading part in bringing out strong, enforceable international agreements among, the nations of the world to outlaw and prevent aggression and preparation therefore." We're ready "to take his statement at face value. Even when isolationism was more or less accepted as a republican policy, Mr. Hickenlooper had misgivings about its validity. We have occasion to remember this because we once argued the point with him. That was before we had seen the light. ·In fact, he had something to do ·with bur seeing the light. In a hundred ways Bourte H i ck- enlooper has proved that he is sound on domestic issues and effective as an administrator. That he sees the world in its proper perspective and visions our role in future international affairs is fully as important as a qualification for membership in the senate. How Washington--and particularly how the senate--meets America's world responsibilities will determine whether it's war or peace for the generations ahead. By any test Bourke Hickenlooper measures up. Did You Know?

Censorship Persists TJNTIL Argentina lets up on her ^ newspaper censorship restrictions, and so long as there is a curb on movie films which reflect on the axis,'most observers will doubt that the recently announced break of relations with Hitler and Hirohito was anything more than an act of temporary expediency.

I have been glancing at a treatise on "The Diseases of Musicians,"'by Dr. Kurt Singer which is full of lore. (It is not-a recent publication, so you ivili probably ask. your bookseller for it m vain.) Dr. Singer starts out with the nervous arid almost mental disorders of musicians, and here he outlines some principles which apply to all those queer gentry who work in the arts whether pamtinj, music or writing He says that they are inevitably un- Pros and Cons Interesting Viewpoints From Our Exchanges Prison Alumni Group Needed!' Indianola Record: As the Record has remarked before, the state hospitals and prisons suffer, in comparison with the educational institutions, in not having loyal and aggressive alumni associations to press their claims on the legislature. Perhaps an adequate expose of conditions at Anamosa may wake up the people of Iowa to form honorary alumni associations lor the penal and psychiatric institutions to do the legislative lobbying and leg-pulling which the actual graduates do not seem to be able to do for themselves. Grossly Exaggerated Ideas Traer Star-Clipper: There are millions o£ adults in this country who are getting grossly exaggerated ideas ot the value of their services, and they can hardly be blamed for that. It is the result of the administration's policy of paying too lavishly for nearly everything in connection with the war, ever since the gigantic defense program was started in 1939, Dependent Upon Tribune Charles City Press: At the present time the republicans of Iowa have to depend upon the Chicago Tribune for their party leadership among metropolitan dailies, which of course is ostracized by a bunch of half-baked pretended republican papers, but with party victory we will find What were.the dates of ihe 2 ereat hurricanes experienced by Providence, R.

This supplement will, consist of 16 pages. Concise explanations in words are made the more clear by informative drawings and charts. The booklet has been worked out with a view to helping the'aver- age reader with his or her specific problem. Too many of these works seem to be designed for tax experts. 1 am calling your attention to the feature here because I think you'll want to be on the lookout for this AP TAX PRIMER. Do what you want to with the remainder of Saturday's paper but save out the supplement. It's a service for Globe-Gazette readers that I -think wilt be appreciated. "-- V-For Boby's Safety ,dip into a recent booklet · put out by the National Safety Council for 'these suggestions for the sleeping care of an infant: In cold weather air the room thoroughly for a half hour before putting the baby to bed, then shut the windows. Keep the bed out o' drafts. Sleep him in 'his own bed _ don't take him into bed with you Many babies are smothered that way. Make sure blankets don't covei his face. This is especially important for babies under 3 months old and for premature or weak babies. Use only such sleeping baes or patented crib blankets as are recommended by your physician. If the baby fights against the patented blanket, abandon it and use warm pajamas and blankets. When the baby is old enough to pull himself up, keep the side of the bed up. Use a 2-year or 6-year size crib', after the baby is a month or two old. Keep pillows oUt of his bed. -- V-S B Tough Life shed a tear with Henry Africa of the R o c k w e 1 1 Tribune in passing alons the following lament of a journalist: C.tlinr «ol Ibe Tribune Is n. picnic. ! »° V ., J !t" """* " y » e »« sll| r: I we don't, Ihey w we art loo scr/ouj.

And the reason is not far to seek. However much you may admire a piece ot creative composition, the-artist is always dissatisfied because he knows the chasm that separates his own first conception of it, the inspiration, with the reality. His ideals are never realized .His reach, as Browning put it exceeds his grasp. This makes for the queer,' nervous, impractical, morose individual the ploddin" world of "practical" men sees and almost invariably makes fun of and despises. Another thing that excites the derision of the world which is nevertheless an inevitable fact is thnt among the high- Jy talented (and even among geniuses) the "men seem-to have feminine trails and the women masculine." Dr. Singer thinks musicians are unhappy people to be with. But my experience is that musicians and painters are comparatively happy and normal. Partly I think, because they do their work or see their work appreciated in public, surrounded by other people. The writer in the throes o£ creation :s alone. He is appreciated by solitary and temporarily silent readers. If you really want to contact some jirst rate dyed in the wool concentrated neurotics cultivate the literary set. And, for heaven's sake, never let any of your loved ones marry a writer or. m fact, make a friendship with one, or if you can help it don't try to meet one. Oh! if you yearn to be insulted!

Nearly every sincere and capable school administrator a n d teacher will indorse heartily a revised school policy wherein an education will again become the primary purpose of a school and extra-curricular activities are put back where they bclons. These activities, properly handled have a value,,but this is lost and they rapidly become a menace as soon as they are placed foremost in a school program. The transition will not be too easy but it must be made if our schools are to develop a student body capable of assuming the duties of citizens in a manner intelligent enough to keep us from another war. The school administrators alone cannot bring about this change without the co-operation of parents and voters.
