Two years ago Dr. Francis E. Townsend conceived his $200-a-montu pension for those past 60, and backed his faith with a small, modest organization. From desk space in a. Long Beach, Cal., real estate office, suave promoters boomed the Townsend plan into a bonanza. A month ago the Townsend bubble burst. Washington investigators revealed that the National Surety company, one of the nation's leading bonding houses, refused to bond the Townsend old age pension organization any longer, and served notice of withdrawal from its coverage of certain individual officials, part of whom were dismissed. Immediately the Townsendites set up the protest of politics, but it was evident that something ia the setup of the Townsend organization was clearly off color. The demand for a congressional investigation followed. Last week Chairman C. Jasper Bell (democrat of Missouri) and other members of the congressional investigating committee began a routine of inquiry into the Townsend promotion. Discovered almost immediately was the fact that Robert E. Clements, the suave promoter who puffed the Townsend plan into profitable proportions, drew S12.3S5 as salary, above living expenses, for assisting the aged and the poor of the nation. Mr. Clements (who has since resigned as secretary-treasurer of the movement) will obtain at least $25,000 for his stock in the Townsend weekly. His salary of 512,385 was revealed by the committee's counsel as "velvet" because his living "expenses" cost the organization from 57,500 to .$10,000'in addition. Working with the poor and the aged did not prevent Mr. Clements from maintaining a ,?130 a month apartment in Washington, breakfasting at $1.40 a cover, and living in ?10 a day hotel room suites while millions of disillusioned followers of the good doctor in California were sending in their 25c a month dues. In addition, Clements' comely redhaired wife-secretary drew $1,475 from the organization in 1935 for her services at headquarters. LOOK OUT ^ BELOW * Along with the few who won In the sweepstakes lottery, newspapers should photograph a mob scene, representing the millions who play the sucker role. Joe Louis' left and a telescope are alike in that both are capable of making you see millions of stars. Mrs. Hauptmann never has explained satisfactorily where she thought Bruno was getting all his money. If over production is the American problem, it's strange that imports should be growing so fast. Ordinarily William Randolph Hearst in absolute reverse isn't such a bad political philosophy. We haven't seen any recent census of Brookharts at the public trough. Simile: Independent-minded as a German voter. [DAILY SCRAP BOOK The PROS and CONS From San Francisco came another sidelight on the Townsend setup. Edward J. Margett admitted receiving $1,800 to $2,100 monthly in commissions for his part in the Townsend plan campaign. The congressional investigation should uncover how many others received "commissions" for the Townsend movement in the manner of Clements and Margett. Investigation indicates that the Townsend promotion has collected nearly 1 million dollars in 26 months and the cash has just begun to flow in. Dr. Townsend has been regarded as a simple visionary but a letter read during the course of the investigation throws some doubt on this assumption. It may develop that Dr. Townsend was just as cognizant of a good thing for himself as some of his more youthful elates. Be that as it may, it isn't debatable that the profits of Townsendism have been wrung from those least able to "dig up," for the most part. Like a lot of other promotions, the water will have to be squeezed out of the Townsend plan before it can be sold to any political party. Dr. Townsend is now in the process of saddling the Townsend plan on Senator Borah's shoulders because he is the only republican candidate who even "approaches" the standard set by the movement. The followers of ,Dr. Townsend are due for some startling facts in the next few days, facts which will have a bearing on the fate and the future of the Townsend promotion. ROAD IS CLEAR AHEAD nn-ASON CIT'YS council did well by this community 1 " in elevating W. S. Wilcox to the rank of mayor. Along with being qualified for the several special duties which attach to this office, Mr. Wilcox merited the honor which the selection carries. His neighbors placed their sear upon his citizenship and his service THE OLD NATURE IN A NEW SETTING H. Clint Hill in Mitchell County Press (Osairel- She was probably a farm girl-around 20, I judged' a little tinud; an average-looking girl. She was standing with an older girl within earshot of where I was waiting by a corner store window one evening and they were apparently expecting someone. It was two "someones," one evidently the older girl's escort and the other a "blind" date that perhaps had been arranged by the older pair. He was young, too, but not so timid--at least he kept any timidity better covered. Introductions were made and the youngsters were pleased to meet each other- then the older couple drifted away. The new boy acquaintance had been around some --including the Jack Oakie movies--and knew what to say: "Where have you been all my life?" she wasn't without experience either, and was ready with the answer: "Oh yeah?" "Oh, a smart kid huh?" "Be yourself." Etc., etc., through a full recital of the more common lines from the Saturday night screen. Pretty well acquainted by now the couple moved down the walk a few yards and got into the front seat of a second-hand car from where, by straining my eyes and ears a bit, I got a little more. The youth, fully versed in what the young man should be, proffered cigarets; and she, equally well up on current rules, accepted. By the flare of the lighter I could see her awkwardness, and I presently heard her cough. He was gallant, however, and coughed with her, remarking that those s always got his throat, but he'd got them without meaning to Finally all set, they backed out with something of a flourish and drove away--I suppose to one of the several hotspots in the vicinity that pass for night OBSERVING wMH ALL BJJ-T A FEW of- CIVIU7ED QUEBEC BRioqE OVER TME 5T LAWRENCE RIVER FELL -fv/l CE ,, WHILE.

IN 1907 ,-fflE SECOND-TfME IN 1916 -- | WAS FINALLY COMPLETED IM 1917 JUST A SUGGESTION VOK HOLLYWOOD PKESS AGENTS get just a little tired of the constant stream of new fads that emanates from Hollywood. From poio to croquet to bicycles to horsebacking to badminton to heavens-knows-what it goes in a dizzying whirl, complete with pictures from the press-agents. The latest development, we read, is air- rifle shooting competitions. Probably it was a good gag when t started. Publicity men have to Lhink up something to catch space if they are to stay on payrolls, and a good-looking gal in shorts has idways been the answer. But the notion that we simple folks will a t t e n t i o n ' t o " l h 7 'strict "neu'tr.."' trail along and do likewise, jus Huue of Germany " because our favorite IKUII looks at which are disturbing the public and are detrimental to the credit of money circulation organs." "Do not publish news concerning the arrest of Korean malcontents." "Do not mention plans to build a railway between Harbin and Yoy- ogi. "The case of Doctor Sliumei Oka. wa for violating the explosive control law is not to be published." Obviously these are off the same oolt of goods as these "confidential instructions" dispatched by Mussolini to Italian editors: "Never allude to the peril." "In dispatches from Berlin draw German clubs. And thus bereft of entertainment I filled my wait with musing. Turn the clock back twenty-five years, substitute an old bay mare and muddy buggy for the second-hand car, and make further substitutions of the manners and bright sayings, and there was I. Rural youth, naturally wholesome and good, trying to cover up under an unnatural sophistry. Country boys coming to the rural town; the villagers going to the city; city folks going to the metropolis. They all do it--and they never quite get over it. I've long realized the urge, and I'm always thinking I'm well over it, but looking back I can always see I wasn't. I wonder if I am yet. . SWEDEN--PROSPERITY IS POSSIBLE Magazine of Wall Street: Sweden is perhaps not only the most modern but the most prosperous country today. Disastrous Kruger liabilities have already been liquidated--a fat budgetary surplus salted away for lean years. Following sterling religiously, internal monetary problems take care of themselves. Sweden's basis industry--lumber and derivative products--flourishes, outstripping Norway and Russia in export markets. Highgrade steel brooks no competition abroad. Wages are high, prices are high, per capita consumption is high. Unemployment is nonexistant--out of 6 million people an insignificant 43,000 are temporarily without employment. Labor turns a cold shoulder to communism, co-operates smoothly with capitalistic employers. While it would be irrevelant to compare Sweden, with its specialized economic background, to other countries of a more complex and heterogeneous industrial composition, Sweden remains a shining example of efficiency and enterprise, irrefutably repudiating the modern conviction that prosperity is impossible under a capitalistic system. DIET and HEALTH l!j LOCiAN XK.NUE.NING, M. D. to community by according to him the high vote of last year's city election. This fact suggested the bestowal of Monday's honor upon Mr. Wilcox. With the inauguration of the new council, Mason City completes its return to the true city manager form of government. The councilmen are all committed to it, in spirit and fact, and City Manager Herbert T. Barclay in his eight months in Mason City has proved that in temperament, ability, character and experience, he is qualified to perform those duties set out for a city manager. In short, the stage is set for the kind of economy ajid efficiency that characterized the first five years of the city manager form of government in Mason City. The new council, made up as it is of able citizens, may be relied upon to guide a straight course on questions of policy and Mr. Barclay may be relied upon to translate those policies into reality in his administrative capacity. All in all, the prospect is bright for a period of excellent municipal government in Mason City, free from the petty bickering and personal ambitions which make for good entertainment but bad business. ----- rnn B mt DR. V. A. FARRELL pEW deaths of recent years in Mason City have come with such a shock as did that of Dr. V. A. Parrell. It was totally without warning. To all appearances he was in rugged health. An extended continuation of his medicinal ministry was assumed by all who knew him. Dr. Farrell was born in Mason City; he lived his entire life in Mason City, except when he was in professional training; he died in Mason City. Although not old in years, he was by this circumstance a true pioneer. His roots were deep in the community's affection. He held true to the ideals and precepts of the family doctor. No higher compliment could be paid him. ONE EFFECT OF AN ELECTION Swea City Herald: As a means of getting everyone into everybody else's hair, a town election is hard to beat. We are moved to make this remark after reading nearby newspapers which give accounts of election battles. The foibles and little tricks of the candidates, of which all of us possess a full share, are enlarged upon until poor Old Bill Jones, ordinarily the most complacent of citizens, wonders whether he will be wearing prison stripes before it is over. We don't know that there is much can be done about it. It is one of those things which is a .part of the relations among so-called human beings. Usually after it is over, common sense prevails among the great part of the citizens who go about their several ways again, and town government goes along in about the same groove it has followed since the townside was recorded in the courthouse. DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT OP "ITCH" THE ITCH, as we said yesterday, is no respecter of ·!· persons. While most people believe that the little bug which causes it hides in unclean bedding, dirty underclothes and linen, and unclean clothes generally, and that the disease is, therefore, something of a disgrace, it is not always confined to the habitues of tenements or cheap lodging houses. "The fluidity of present day populations contributes to making scabies the explanation of the itches of the tycoon, the socialite and the university professor equally with the mechanic's daughter on relief. "Seventeen cases among the well-to-do could be traced to family contact; 10 were incident to travel; three came jfrom hotels, one of them a princely hostelry." The cause of the disease is a small animal parasite called the Dr. Clendenini acar us scabei. This animal burrows its way into the' superficial layers of the skin in parts of the body where the skin is thin. A common site is in the web between the fingers. Treatment External. The treatment is entirely by external remedies; commonly by the use of sulphur in ointment form. The ointment should not be applied for longer than one or two days because the sulphur itself, if used longer than this time, will cause an irritation of the skin. EARLIER DAYS FROM GLODK-CAZBTTt; I'JI.liS BAD CIRCULATION Titonka Topic: Jesse Jones will tell you that there is plenty of money in this country, but its circulation is unhealthy as the blood in your veins. If you have plenty of blood in your veins and it does not circulate normally, your end on earth is near. A POINTED SUGGESTION Forest City Summitt: It would add sincerity to the state administration's gesture to help jobless find jobs if it would give state jobs now held by members of state officer's families to those who are now supported by tax money. An important part of the treatment is to send blankets and clothes to the dry cleaner, to send linen and underwear to the laundry, and to immerse the bedclothes and underwear in boiling water after the treatment is completed. Cure is usually effective in a short time, although recurrences are known to occur, and is it unfortunate that people acquire a phobia about the bug and keep applying sulphur ointment until they smell to high heaven and also induce a generalized inflammation of the skin all over the body. Lack of Precautions. ' Lack of precautions as to clothes and bedding are, of course, the reason that scabies may occur in any class of society. A physician who was visiting at a summer resort, was consulted in his bedroom by another vacationer. The latter had a well developed case of the itch, and in the process of showing the doctor the lesions on the skin, he had thrown his coat and hat on the doctor's bed. As soon as the patient left, the doctor had all the bedding taken to the laundry and insisted on a new, clean mattress and laundered sheets. In this way he probably saved himself from an attack. Another story is that of a doctor on an ocean liner, who was consulted on the sixth day out from port by a fellow passenger who was literally covered with scabies and who. undoubtedly, had spread some of it to other passengers by way of the bedding or direct contact. Thirty Years Ago-Mrs. T. R. Kirit left yesterday for a visit with her daughter at Elgin, 111. C. R. Freeman and Howard Atkinson left today for a few days' business visit in Pecos Valley, N. Mex. Dr. C. H. Smith arrived today from a few months' visit with his son at Mobile, Ala. Richard Valentine returned today from a winter's sojourn in California. Miss Mable Swanson left today for DCS Moines' to resume her studies at Drake university. Twenty Years Ago-Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Van Ness returned yesterday from Excelsior Springs, Mo., where the former has been taking- treatment for the past month. J. M. Heflner, manager of the Bijou, and P. E. Johannsen, manager of the Regent, were fined $5 and costs each today by Judge W. R. Hayes for violating the ordinance against Sunday amusements. Miss Rose Meyers left today for a visit at her home in Ossian. Harry Silverman left today for a few days' business visit at Omaha, Nebr. Mrs. Calla White Smith of Charles Citv is in the city for a week-end visit with relatives. Mrs. D. H. Fitzpatrick has returned from a few days' visit in Des Moines. Ten Years Ago-WETHERSFIELD, Conn.--Gerald Chapman's sen- tractive at it. seems to be a little shopworn. A f t e r all, a large part of the population that goes to the movies is neither young and athletic, nor slim and handsome. More of us are serious, bomestaying folks with worries on our minds below our thinning hair. Here's a suggestion for a press- agent who wants to make his star stand out as something unique. Make him a serious-minded business-like sort of chap who takes his work earnestly, and has no time to loll around beaches in a pair of trunks. It's a fair guess that provided he isn't absolutely the world's worst actor, he will accumulate a following among people who are just like that. The businessman's matinee idol! No nonsense about him--just one of us. It would be such a novelty that it couldn't miss. Help yourself, gents. The idea is free. --o -- WIIKKE NKWSi'APKUS HAVE EVKIITHING--EXCEIT NEWS have previously shown how i censorship of the press works out in Germany, Russia and Italy. Here's a sample of a recent "ban" sent out to Japanese editors by the governmental agency in charge of public opinion: "Editors: Any report in connect- tion with the incident of concealing secret documents by a Miss Kuwa Dagachi, a typist in the employ of the police affairs board of Manchu- kuo, is to be suppressed." "Do not publish any news in regard to the removal of the remains of Chang-Tes-Lin." "You are hereby advised not to publish any news other than that selected by the navy office in regard to the grand naval maneuvers to be held." "The newspaper is liable to suppression for publication of matter concerning.the condition of various bank s in Yamagata prefecture the "Du not mention German armaments. Nothing more is to be said about the Stresa front and watch on Uie Brenner." Newspapers in dictator-ridden countries have about everything-except news!

The delay in Brookharfs announcement was doubtless caused by an indecision whether to seek office in Maryland, where he now lives, or in Iowa, where he used to live,. PLAYING WITH DYNAMITE MASON CITY--Now it seems that Bruce Barton is to blame for our atta.ck of Townsendites. The fact that he did it for a joke, according to a story in the March Harpers, does not excuse him for playing with dynamite. He should have foreseen that somebody like Dr. Townsend would take him in earnest, swallow the bait, hook, line and sinker and precipitate us into a get rich right off scheme. That balls us all up and prevents us from voting Intelligently still, common sense ought to tell the common man that the hope of getting a big salary for doing nothing at all is a dishonest hope.

But Randolph didn't take back what he had said in the senate, where he called to account Clay's progenitors for bringing into the world "this being, so brilliant, yet so corrupt, which like a rotten mackerel by moonlight, shined and stank."
