E D I T O R I A L S - ^ Chief Scour N«ed Is More Adult Leaders TOO MANY things ]jke schools, 1 library books,' running water, the telephone and electricity are taken for granted by too many of us until the -anniversary of their invention or dedication comes around to remind us. 'It is only then, as at a time when we are , denied fresh air and sunshine, that we wonder what we could do without them. This week--right now--is a good time to do a little serious thinking about the Boy Scouts of America. The scouts are now "in the midst of a week's observance of their 34th . anniversary: They rate a salute, for many reasons, but principally right ' now because through 2 world wars and a worldwide depression this organization hasn't once relaxed its efforts. It has helped make 11,000,000 boys into better Americans, and right now that means a very great deal. Every boy in America has a light, to be a scout, but not all of them may, which might suggest something we could do about this anniversary besides salute. Scores of boys in our own city want to be scouts and can't because there aren't enough scout leaders to go · around. ' Any former scouts--or any other men who' realize what \this birthday celebration is all about--will observe the day best by. calling Earle- Behrend at the scout office in Mason City and signing up..

Jessie Reconsiders . \JISS JESSIE SUMNER o f Uli* nois, one of the limited group of women representatives in congress, recently announced that she would not seek renomination The repuolic is gone, she said. She had despaired of her almost single- handed efforts to save it. Now she announces that she has reconsidered. She's going to seek , re-election. "Various persons decided it was their duty to their country to force me to reconsider " she pomfed out in her characteristic womanly modesty. One of these "various persons" --the only one to come to otsr attention--was the Chicago Tribune whose voice Miss Sumner has been since herjirst day at Washington. About Carl W. Rtfed . A NNOTINCEMENT by Carl W. n Seed of Cresco that he will seek renomination as Iowa state commerce commissioner is pleasing to lowans generally, and particularly to his North Iowa neighbors. Mr. Reed in his various public offices--city attorney, county attorney, state senator, district Judge and commerce commissioner --has proved himself able and effective. It would be hard to overestimate his contribution to the commission on which he now serves. It's our guess that he will ~ -- ---" *"«av*agt.J*^aJ.t. UJ. UiLUCliCn Today infant feeding is discussed Next week feeding in' the second and third years of the child's' life. There has been no change which modern science has made in the belief that every child should be breast fed, if possible. Even if only a few weeks or months, even if it has to be supplemented by feedings of cow's milk, it gives the baby a nutritional start in life like nothing else. ' When it is replaced by artificial feeding by .cow's milk a few general principles are all' that need DC known in order for the modern mother to arrange the formula. First, and most important, is cleanliness. The bottles aad nipples must he boiled before every feeding. The milk must be pasteurized or, preferably, boiled. The protein scum which comes to the surface of boiled milk can be skimmed off without danger to the nutritional .quality of the milk since cow's milk has more protein than mother's milk. The second consideration is the nutritional value of the mlik Cow's milk contains only a little more than half as much sugar as mother's milk, so that has to be supplied. ·The sugar o£ mother's and cow's TMi is * }ie same --lactose: But. what form of sugar is used to step up cow's milk formula makes little difference--Jactose, maltose,- dextrin preparations or the ordinary cane sugar you use in your'coffee. The formula for the baby on cow's milk is: : Whole milk, 7 ounces (or evaporated milk 3 ounces). Sugar, Vi ounce. Water, up to 10 ounces. Divide this into the number of feedings required. The baby, needs 45 calories per pound of weight per day. To find out how much of the above formula it needs divide the caloric requirement by 20, and the result is the number of ounces of the formula, you need. (Example: For an 8 pound baby--18 ounces in 24 hours.) Up fo two months give 5 or 6 feedings in 24 hours of 3 to ·I','. ounces per feeding. Additions to milk dietary. All cows milk, (except irradiated), and for safety's sake mother's milk needs the addition of Vitamin D in the torm of cod liver oil (2 te-- spoonsful daily or 4 drops of a c ° nc fjtrate). Also Vitamin C should be supplied in the form of fresh orange Juice--a teaspoonful fi, · rapidly increased until the juice o£ one orange a day is pven. Cow's milk also needs iron to be supplied independently of the feedings. Pros and Cons Interesting Viewpoints From 'Our Exchanges Johnston as a G. O. P. Hope _pecorah Journal: As a speaker able to analyze conditions, E r i c Johnston appealed to Us more than any person we have ever heard He is an independent in thought and action and would, we believe,' appeal to voters of all .parties.

An American Contrast Northwood Anchor: Our peculiar American way: Harry Bridges an alien ordered deported to his native Australia many months ago called to Washington to confer with a C. I. O. board AND government officials on prosecution of the war. But Washington doesn't give ex-President Herbert Hoover even a pleasant look. A Political Forecast Burlington Hawk-Eye Gazette: So we'll guess right now the party nominees this year will be: Democrats, Roosevelt and Wallace; republicans, Dewey arid Warren We don't like either slate" but that's still the way it looks from this corner.

OBSERVING The Cose of Chicago ~ , wqnder if the time hasn't come for the University of Chicago in its athletic program to do 1 of 2 things: 1. Either quit Its/ studied de- emphasis of athletics, or 2. Withdraw from the -Big -10 conference. Following Iowa defeat of Chicago by the lopsided score of 103 to 31, I heard one sports authority say that : .there are · high school teams in Iowa capable of:beating the Maroons by at least 20 points. As matters now stand, the setup isn't fair to anybody. Certainly it does the Chicago boys no good to be used as a conference doormat game after game. Its as if a Class B high school had all of its athletic competition with large Class A schools. It's carrying "learning,'how to lose" much too far. The whole business is unfair to other members of the conference Teams w h i c h do not schedule setup games with Chicago are penalized in the win and lose percentage column. .This wouldn't be written, of cdurse, if the condition alluded to were a temporary war emergency. Chicago's athletic de-emphasis policy, however, was put into effect about .10 years before the war came along. \ ' .. ^ The.Wine is at hand when Chi- r(--- *-~ *·---«--- ·Tve brought some more BOOM ...

Files FORTY YEABS AGO January proved to be one of the coldest months in northern Iowa that has been experienced in years. Not since 1899 has there been such intense cold and then the average for the month was 12 degrees above. This year the average for the month was 11, with a normal of 15. The Prince of Pilsen with his suite of 70 persons arrived in the city this morning from the south on the Central and are nicely es- conced at the various hotels. THIRTY YEARS AGO Books were placed in the Jackson school today by the public library making five schools of the city now supplied with advantages of the public library without having to go such a long distance to get books. Residents of Midland Heights have filed a petition w'ith the council asking that street lights be provided in that addition. TWENTY YEARS AGO Mrs. T. T. Blaise, Mrs. J. E. McMahon and Miss Katherine Trissel went to Crystal Lake Friday where they acted as judges of an oratorical contest in which Britt pupils also participated. Owing to serious damage by- fire to St. John's church, the building will not be fit for use for some weeks. Services will be held in the lodge room of the Elks.
