Em- ployes are to consider nothing that does not contribute to recovery. "Heform" is out. Meanwhile Mr. Roosevelt is reported grieved and hurt that business has not responded to his assurance that from here in the administration will cuddle up to business and swing no more axes. He has given them the green light, and they haven't let in the clutch. He has actually promised there will be no new taxes--this season. What do they want? Well, if one could X-ray the collective mind of business one would probably find that in general it wants more than placards on desks and Jdnd words at the white house. It wants to have something concrete to take the taste of past broken promises out of its mouth. Business knows that the promise of no new faxes is ridiculous BO long as there are new deficits piling up. And it can't fail to see how passionately the administration clings to all its spending plans, and how angrily it repels the suggestion that the undistributed earnings, tax and other brakes on profits be repealed. So business feels disinclined, to step, on the. starter--not until Mr. Hoosevelt gives it more than a pat on the head. The test may come soon. If Mr. Roosevelt will officially approve and officially launch in congress some such program as that offered by Senator Harrison, for reducing spending and lowering taxes, if he will'abandon the project of increasing the debt limit to 50 billion dollars, if he will lead in modifying the Wagner act, if he will officially abandon the Florida ship canal, Quoddy, expansion of TVA, and similar expensive gadgets dear tq his heart, perhaps his kind words will be taken at face value. DAILY SCRAP BOOK . . By Scott EYE No Permanent Solution mHE safety department amendment adopted by ·^ the Iowa house Tuesday would have the effect oE removing the patrol and most of the major vehicle department from their present notoriously unsatisfactory control. There can be no doubt either that the present attorney general is a fine, able, honest official. But -the objective of putting the. department permanently above and beyond the reach of politics--so far as is possible--isn't encompassed at all in the house amendment.' The present emergency would be met but the fundamental problem wouldn't be solved in any sense of the word. First of all there would be the threat of a scramble and a shakeup every two years, for that is the tenure of the attorney general. While not inevitable the chances are extremely strong that the patrol would be knee-deep in politics. That threat is inherent in the plan, just exactly as it is in the present setup. Down through the years there has been as much incompetence in the attorney general's office as in any department of state government. The present situation is not the "norm." Review the field for the past quarter of a century and you'll discover that the office has been more distinguished by inepitude, or worse, than it has by ability. All in all the house emasculation of the senate bill is one that will not have favor with the people of Iowa. It shows every indication of having been born of something other than legislative statesmanship. We still expect better things of the house. · * * Kennedy at the Vatican B ESPEAKING the friendly feeling which exists today between Washington and the Holy See was the appointment of Ambassador Joseph Kennedy to represent President Roosevelt officially at the coronation of Pope Pius XII Sunday. It was the first time that the United Slates has been officially represented at papal rites since 1846. Ambassador Kennedy, who represents the United States as envoy to England, had more than an official interest in the crowning of Pius XII. When His Eminence as Cardinal Pacelli came to the United States in October 1936 he was the guest for some time of the Kennedys at their Long Island home. It was a gesture ot friendliness, therefore, for President Roosevelt to have appointed him to represent the United States and the president in the ceremonies at Rome Sunday. The Duke- of Norfolk, chamberlain of the coronation of King George VI in May 1937 was the official representative of the British government at the Vatican services. The United States government and the Vatican do not exchange ambassadors, but there exists the closest friendship between these two sovereignties. The appearance of Ambassador Kennedy at the Vatican rites Sunday as the official representative of the United States goes a step further in breaking down age-old barriers. Thoughts Worth Remembering-- "We cannot continue to maintain peace unless we consolidate the union of heart' and spirit that h*s thus been united in common anguish."-- Edouacd D«.!adier. That student body at the University of Pittsburgh has been giving an example of why so many Americans are discounting the value of college education, * « « There's this fundamental" truth with respect to our state: Its future rests more with the institutions of higher learning than with its prisons or asylums. a » * After six years in power a party must be ready to accept appraisal on a basis of what has been done rather than on glittering promises. a a o If all those of shade reputation, like Hines, resigned from Tammany, there just wouldn't be very many, left to carry on, it seems. » » « The popular song which used to be good for at least six months is now hammered to death in three weeks. « * * The crowning fallacy ot the -new deal is that government can do most things better than private enterprise. . * * * George Washington, hasn'6 yet been proved wrong in his warning against entering entangling alliances. 9 · * PROS and CONS Some Interesting Viewpoint* Gleaned From Our Exchanges Reason for Mrs. Roosevelt's Popularity Allison Tribune: It isn't hard to understand why Mrs. Roosevelt is so popular and rates above the president in the Gallup poll. She really has established herself as one who is willing to try anything once. During the years she has been making her "study of American life," she dedicated a Kentucky high school, rode in a benefit horse show, went backstage at theaters, danced with shirt-sleeved home-stead ers, sponsored struggling reformers, served hot dogs to Sweden's crown princess at a picnic, and picknicked with' Shirley Temple. We'll guess that there is reason for her popularity. Her resignation from the national board of Daughters of the American Revolution, because the daughters refused use of its- constitutional hall in Washington, D. C., to Marian Anderson, a Negro singer, should be commended, Government by Petition Fenton Reporter: We are fast becoming a nation ruled by petition. It seems every time someone does something someone else doesn't like, up pops the petition protest. It doesn't matter whether the law benefits or is sanctioned by a great many people. If certain groups are opposed to it petitions are immediately circulated to have it repealed or-to prevent it from becoming a law. Iowa Isn't Amour the Nutty States Jefferson Bee: Iowa might have been classed with nutty states, 'were it not for the fact this state, in record time, upset the Brookhart regime and is rapidly on the way to getting rid of some more' re- formers. Sizing up the -48 states it is a pleasure to see that only a very few of them get permanently wedded to cranks, howlers and peinetual fault finders. If Dewey Is Nominated Knoxville Journal: Dewey's lack of training and unknown views on national issues may prove to be serious handicaps, in getting the G. O. P. nomination for the presidency but, once nominated, such alleged disqualifications would be drowned by. the cheers of the great American public. He would run like a scared rabbit. Against State Office Building Council Bluffs Nonpareil: We doubt if the people ot Iowa cheer the proposed plan to build a million dollar state office building in Bes Moines. What lowans expect this administration to do is to get rid of a lot of useless state commissions instead of providing them with luxurious offices. Editors Should Strive to Be Fair Webster City Freeman- Journal: There can be no objection to any editor stating his views on the editorial page. We are all biased more or less, ^but should strive to be fair, and strive as we may partisanship is bound to crop out occasionally. Reminder of Speakeasy Days Mankato Free Press: \Vith all displays ordered removed from state liquor store windows in Pennsylvania by Governor James, citizens will feel that they are back in the speakeasy era if the doors are locked and a special password is required to get in. Chain letters Marshalltown Times-Republican: The vicious chain letter has made its appearance in Iowa again, with threats of dire consequences to those who ''break'; the chain. Promoters should be rounded up and given time for meditation behind barred windows. Merely Accepting the Facts Sioux City- Journal: It is said that Washington shortly will extend recognition to the Franco regime in Spain, which would not necessarily be an approval of the revolt but merely an acceptance of facts as they are.

Time to Pension a Song Cedar Bapids Gazette: If Dr. Gallup or anybody is interested, we've had quite enough of Franklin D. Roosevelt Jones, too interesting Letters Up to 250 Wordt Are Welcome SMILES rvUNKERTON-- Hank Hook told a woman *-' falling and breaking her arm. "She was brought to the hospital," he said, "and her leg was X-rayed and put in a cast." We hope her arm is better! Evidently a preacher isn't the only speaker whose mind skids! Frances Perkins, secretary of labor, told this story on President Grover Cleveland. When his baby was born, the nurse was very much embarrassed because she had no scales with which to weigh it. She first went to the white house kitchen to obtain the scales. Not finding one, she asked the president for his scales that he used in weighing the fish that he caught He politely consented and lo "the baby weighed 27 pounds." EEV. W. M. ZIMMERMAN REMEMBER? From Globe-Gazette Files THIRTY YEARS AGO-- Mr. arad Mrs. Fred Seisseger who have been living at Clear Lake all winter have moved into their residence on Drummond street. W. V. Shipley, who has been engaged in the mercantile business at Iowa Falls for many years, and who is interested in several other mercantile .stores, in this part of the state, will open a dry goods store in Webster City as soon as the building he has rented can be put in shape by the painters and the merchants. Charles Buck of Centerville will manage the store for Mr. Shipley. Fifty-five members of the credit association enjoyed one of Colonel Rankin's sumptuous club dinners at the Odd Fellows hall Friday evening at 6 p. m. sharp by the courthouse clock. The Re- bekahs were the artists de cuisine and gave a . fine demonstration and sumptuous supply of their art. Only time was left to elect officers after the spread and.election put the o. k. seal on the officers of last year who were re-elected as follows: President, Lee R. Bailey; vice president Charles Hansom; attorney and secretary, W. S. Rankin; directors, F. A. Granzow, Dr. Stinehari, J, E. Igou, Frank Miller, Will Patfon and Dr. J. V. Fatrell. TWENTY YEARS AGO-- Mrs. L. E. Newcomer broke two ribs Thursday when she fell striking across the edge of a chair. She was adjusting curtains wh'en the accident occurred. She is resting easily today. Colin Hamilton and Grover Baker are two of the late overseas soldiers to arrive home. A meeting of the general committee interested in the "Get-Acquainled" trip of Mason City boosters to eastern points will meet Saturday noon. The travelers' bureau of the Chamber of Commerce will hold its regular Chamber of Commerce luncheon at noon. The general committee of the Chamber of Commerce will dine with the travelers and other businessmen. Mrs. E. L. McCuIlough spent the past few days visiting friends at Webster City. TEN YEARS AGO-- Flood conditions along Willow creek 5n the southwest section of the city were appreciably improved Thursday afternoon when the ice jam above Pennsylvania avenue dam was broken by persistent blasting. ' . The Central Child Study' circle met Tuesday evening in the school auditorium for the lesson on "Parents and Sex Education" led by Mrs. Sarah McArthur. The first of the Lenten teas to be given by the Delta Alpha Sunday school class will be at the home of Mrs. B. A. Webster on Saturday afternoon, at which time a musical program will be given by Mrs. Raymond B. Weston and Mrs. J. B. McGregor. From the editorial page comes the following: Speaking of European nations that are picking up in business, it is the impression that Germany is doing the best. Germany has "come back" since the World war in marveious fashion. Poets Everywhere · By Lou Mollory Luke of Hampton ANOTHER poem that seems to appear in this " column every spring, finds itself in print here again today. It was written by Lew Sarett, well Iinown poet, lecturer, professor and nature lover. Mr. Sarett has traveled more than 40 thousand miles in North America by canoe and pack train, mostly in the northwest and wilderness sections of the country. His recreations are trout fishing, hunting, canoeing, collecting Indian curios, flint work, geological specimens and making herbariums of American wild flowers. FOUR LITTLE FOXES Speak gently, Spring, and make no sudden sound; For in my windy valley yesterday I found Newborn foxes squirming on the ground-Speak gently. Walk softly. March, forbear the bitter blow. Her feet within a trap, but blood upon the snow, The four little foxes saw their mother go-Walk softly. Go lightly, Spring, oh, give them no alarm; As I covered them with boughs to shelter them from harm. The thin blue foxes suckled at my arm- Go lightly. Step softly, Marcb, with your rampant hurricane; Nuzzling one another, and whimpering with pain, The new little foxes are shivering in the rain · Step softly. GOODHEALTH By Logan Clendening, M. D. PREVENTING HEAET DISEASE ' PREVENTION is proverbially 12 times as good *· as cure, and in any disease we would like to strike at the roots of things. Heart disease, which is increasing so rapidly in the United States, presents a difficult problem so far as prevention is concerned. About many forms oj heart disease we know the cause, but we have no leads as to how to check them. In other forms, our knowledge of the cause is very vague and unsatisfactory. In some forms a certain amount of headway can be made. At any rate, the subject is of present and vital interest andean analysis of such facts as we do ^cnow leads us to believe that valuable progress is possible in the near future. While there are. named 20 causes of heart disease, we will name only a few of the most prominent i Congenital heart disease: In these cases the heart does not develop completely before birth T»r rr,,,*,.,,! , ? nd .. unna tural connections exisk ur. Clendenln* m the chambers and divisional walls of the heart. It may be said at once that there is no way to prevent these conditions; they are not due to any disease present in the parents. Fortunately, they are very rare. Infections, especially rheumatic fever, cause valvular heart disease. The cause of rheumatic fever is still unknown and there are no known specific preventives. We know, however, that the disease develops in wet, cold, variable weather: that family susceptibility plays a role; that the infection occurs most commonly in poor, crowded, insanitary districts where exposure to cold, fatigue, infection and undernourishment of children are common, and that infections of the nose and throat often precede rheumatic fever. The prevention of rheumatic fever, then, and of the heart disease that'follows it, resolves itself into improving the living conditions of the members of susceptible families. As soon as a case of rheumatic fever develops, the patient should be watched carefully for years. . The other infection which causes heart damage is syphillis, and the public campaign against this may do some good in the prevention of this type of heart disease. Psychic and nervous causes of heart symptoms are frequent and the program for mental hygiene here is suggested as a preventive measure. The thyroid gland and its extra activity is a very frequent cause--perhaps third in frequency --of. hear*- disease. With what we know ot the control, with or without surgery, of thyroid disease, much may be done to control this form. The most frequent cause of heart disease and the most destructive, the one that begins in middle age with the degenerative changes in the arteries, high blood pressure and kidney change, is less susceptible to preventive control. Except to cut down the pressure of life over 50 and bank the fires of activity, there is nothing that we know to do for this scourge of our modern day. Meadow Melodies By Ray Murray of Buffalo Center FROSTY FABLES Cold? Why this ain't cold! At least, not like it uster be. Why back in eighteen eighty-three, I recollect a certain day The mercury just dropped away Right out the bottom of the glasj And burrowed down into the grass, Now withered, dry and old. Snow? You don't know snow! The way the blizzards used to blow To whip up mountain peaks of snow. Why, I remember in those days We would take off with teams and sleighs To ride right over homes and trees And just as easy as you please They were so far below. t draw on the Storm Lake ,) Pilot-Tribune for the fol- lowing'reference to a swindle which most lowans had assumed was buried 6 feet under the cod: "Must be that Baron Oscar Hartzell of Drake estate notoriety is about to emerge from confinement. Last time we heard ,of the baron, he was supposed to be in a hospital for the insane to which he was transferred from federal prison. But as the lawyers say, this is heresay on our part. "However, the above thought is provoked by an Associated Press dispatch reading as follows: '.' 'St. Paul--Aid in stamping out what he termed a revival of the Drake estate swindle was .asked Wednesday by Robert L. Smith, Minnesota securities commissioner, in a letter to commissioners of Iowa and South Dakota. " 'Smith said new activities in what he termed the "Drake swindle" were centering in the vicinity of Spencer and Hartley, Iowa, and South Dakota and southern Minnesota points.' "It would seem that the Drake estate boosters would have learned a lesson, from the testimony and conviction of the aforesaid Baron Hartzell some years ago. The baron was brought back from England, you remember, tried in federal court at Sioux City for using the mails to defraud and sent up. Testimony conclusively demonstrated the Drake estate as a gigantic hoax. "Uncle Sam isn't going to let this swindle get started again if we are able to judge. . Anyone at i Spencer, Hartley or other points hereabouts is looking for trouble if he starts monkeying around with Hartzell or any of his henchmen," --o-Penalty for Aliens ; welcome the inauguration by WPA of a policy which penalizes w o r k e r s who haven't been enough interested in America to become citizens. I haven't seen the figures on Iowa but in Illinois the new policy removed 6,115 aliens from the rolls! In every state relief and "WPA are being denied to aliens While this appears a harsh policy, it has been a needed change in the application of public assistance. In ,the easy-going, good years of American prosperity, millions of aliens found shelter on our shores, earned both wealth and. wages, and. gave no thought to obtaining citizenship in the country of their adoption. Secretary of Labor Perkins recently stated there were 3,500,000 aliens employed in the United States, adding to unemployment Even after 10 years of depression and relief, not many aliens cared to take the final step which would divorce them from their mother country and make them American citizens. For them the United States no longer is the good provider. They have been cut off from relief and WPA in a OBSERVING sweeping change of policy which was the result of Administrator Harry L. Hopkins' retirement. There never has been any particular pressure on persons living in America to accept American citizenship. In good times no one cared, and 5n poor times lew gave thought to citizenship questions. Now thousands of relief clients, to their regret, have learned the lesson they should have discovered when they entered America. Chain Letters Again ; have just come into possession of a silly chain letter that was recently received by a Clear Lake reader. It promised gorgeous good luck to those who would pass along a copy to five persons, within 24 hours, and warned of dire bad luck for all who break the chain. It looked strangely like the work of somebody with a 7 year old intellect. And those who fall for the threats thus presented reveal an intellect even more juvenile. For 20 years at least I've been ignoring these chain letters and the worst luck that has befallen me has been being a very much underpaid (by my own admission) reporter. All the rest of my luck has been distinctly on the good side. Branding the Reckless shall be watching with interest the results obtained from a plan to make mot- torists safety conscious by embarrassing reckless drivers--a plan worked out by city officials of Scranton, Pa. It involves the painting of circles on the rear of violators' automobiles. A yellow ring would be painted after the first offense, a red ring after the second violation, and for a third offense the color would be blue. It is proposed to leave the the circles on automobiles for 30 days. The city legal department is studying the plan to determine whether such punishment is lawful. Bouoiiei ·---cD ~ To L. H. HENRY, EDITOR OF THE CHARLES CITY PRESS-for reaching his 81st milestone in such fine fetUe, physically and mentally. I suspect that L. H. is more actively in the newspaper business today than anybody his age in Iowa.

Mount Whitney was sighted in July, ISSi, by members of the California state geological survey, and was named in honor of their chief, Prof. Josiah Dwight Whitney. Who started the child study movement? N. C. In 1881 G. Stanley Hall, who had just returned to Johns Hopkins TJ. from a period of training in the psychological laboratory in Leipzig, Germany, began to collect and publish material on child psychology. He attracted a great deal of interest among educators lor his views in regard to the administration of schools. The "child study movement,' 1 as it was called, was carried forward vigorously by Hall and his students for a period of 20 years and was one of the important sources of the present scientific study of education. Did congress' ever vote against K third presidential term? M. O'N. In 1928 a resolution passed the senate condemning a third term for the president. How much did it cost to build the World's fair at San Francisco? H. V. It is estimated at $50,000,000. Give some Information about the Vatican City railroad. G. M. The Vatican City railway is only about 600 feet long and the rolling stock consists of a locomotive and three cars. The pope's private car is inlaid with gold and inother-of-pearl. The station within the Vatican 5s also luxuriously equipped. There are 300 feet of tunnel under the Vatican hill and the railroad line runs from behind St. Peter's Basilica to the frontier of the Vatican state. What became of the Chinese iunk "IS'Ing Po" that was anchored at Catalkia island? B. S. For many years the "Ning Po" was at anchor in Catalina harbor at the isthmus, previous to that time having been sailed from Shanghai under her own power to the southern California mainland in 1915, and shortly afterwards brought to Catalina. At first she was at anchor in Avalon bay where for several summers she was opened to the public for inspection with afternoon tea parties given on board as a feature, A few years later the junk was taken down the island coast and anchored at the isthmus in Cafalina harbor where she served as a set for motion pictures and a tourist attraction. Due to age and the action of the water, the "Ning Po" broke up several years ago. Pieces of her hull, which was constructed mostly of ironwood and camphor- wood, have been preserved as relics and made into glove and handkerchief boxes. What are the divisions of the rosary? M. L. It is customary to divide the rosary into three parts, each part consisting of five decades or mysteries, namely, the joyful, the sorrowful, and the glorious.
