WHAT LIES BEHIND IT ,_'the start of the present attack on the Univer- ty of Iowa, now in the legislative investigation tf many have felt that the completes! answer for the state board of education and the university's administrative officers was to be found in the source of the movement and the clear-cut motives back of it. If a certain group of contractors and workers had been turned loose on the university work-If a certain firm had been given the contract for a student engraving job without regard to the condition imposed on other bidders-If a certain individual now in the background had been given a place on the board of education-If a certain coach had been fired and another one compromise could have been effected in the 1 om i me"rcial rivalry of long standing between two ^ uu university employes, in high slation or.low, nad been-found unqualified for their jobs and dis- ^ there had been no newspaper possessed of a ereedy ambition to grow in circulation and power-If President Jessup had been willing to let the university, particularly its medical college, drift along as a second-rate institution-- Â· .' Well without these "ifs," there wouldn't have been the travesty now being enacted at Des Moines to the detriment of both state and universily. The selfish motives and the sore spots are easy oE identification.

The five-year plan bas made her a tremendous buyer of machines, light and heavy, and the Russian respect for ^TMTM** production methods has given us a large 'tare of this business in spite ot non-recognition. This winter, however has seen a concerted drive by European countries particularly Germany, to get a bigger share of Russ'ian orders.

Most of the states were formed, or course, after tne 13 original stales had formed Ihe United States of America, and the confederation oÂ£ these states might be said to antedate Ihe organization of the original states, since these states were then in the position of colonial possession territories of Great Britain.

MASON CITY, March 15.--I wish to add a note of praise to the value of the Lenten prayer. It is a bit of heavenly beauty in a world of common and selfish things. It is never out of order to exalt our Christ Who is soon to reign as King over all the earth. Then and not before may it be said of men-"They will learn war no more." Peace will come with the Prince ot Peace and as long as men and nations are filled with greed and strife there can be no peace. The quea- tion, "Whence came wars and fight- ings among you? Come they not of your own lusts?" Man's heart must be changed Tor as our Master tells us "Out of the heart proceed evil thots, murderg etc." The leaders oE the nations need divine wisdom. The problem is too great for human wisdom. The churches everywhere need to humble their hearts and seek God three to have mercy upon our land in these days of great evil. Our Gort is long suffering ana patient but when the time comes and man no longer honors Him and is content to use every good gift lo satisfy his greed for pleasure and gain, then that mercy is withdrawn and His anger Is poured out. There, is a cause lying back of the famine and wars and storms which are, spreading over the lands and that cause is surely found in the pride of man who has forgotten his Maker and no longer honors the Ruler of II. DARLAND. the universe. LAWS OF STATE DEFIED Hampton Chronicle: The official organ of the tinue pluses. There this has a stable government--repugnant to American institutions, it is true, but by American precedent and international custom that is none of our business. She is already a large customer, and is anxious to become a still larger buyer of our goods. Perhaps the largest single obstacle in the way of normalizing our relations with Russia, and thus opening the way to better trade, is the suspicion of tricky 'dealing which the Soviet's record inspires. Her credit is poor because of her record of repudiation and confiscation, and her past relations with China and Britain for example, seem to show that her signature to a treaty is a matter of temporary convenience. There is still a long way to'go before complete rec- ojmition of Russia by the United States, but a middle ground may be found, if Russia is willing to accept her international obligations and to surrender the crazy idea'of starting a soviet rebellion in this country The next congress will doubtless see a movement in this direction, led by Senator Borah, who has advocated Russian recognition for years. Hampton %_Â»iuumL-a^. 4.1**. ~~- -0 -- , Farmers Union in its issue of two weeks ago defied the laws of the state, by urging farmers in Cedar county to "come with axes and saws" and to do everything possible to stop the state officials from making official tuberculin tests of cattle on any farm m that county. Farm Union officials proclaim to be out lo save the nation and to help the farmers,, but you will find that traitors to the state and nation are not out to help anybody, but to promote their own graft on the unsuspecting public. If the state of jEowa is .going; to let a few traitors dictate what the laws of the state are going to be it might be well to just turn over the statf house to them and be done with it. Otherwise let us have support of the law and send the state miliua down into Cedar county to see that the law is not violated by mob law urged on by traitors to the state and to humanity. WHY NOT BE FAIR ABOUT IT? T T MATTERS not to the Chicago wet newspapers-1 and that's all of them--that a jury has found innocent the two Illinois congressmen who were accused of transporting liquor. Dozens of times, these news. Capers have repeated the charges, always with an implied assumption of guilt and in a .belittling tone. A trial was held and in an edition or .two, the accused representatives had their inning. But the repetition of the nasty charges has ingrained the guilt of the two in the popular mind. The jury before which the Denison case was tried believed there was a conspiracy to hang the blame on the congressman. Why aren't Chicago's newspapers as eager to.gei. behind this plot as they were to blacken the names of two men whose only sin, if it can be termed a sin, lay in-believing that the" eighteenth amendment ought to be preserved?

Mrs, Harrison 72 Ihe eldest of the five, lives in an apartment m JNew York. Mrs. Grover Cleveland, who later married Professor T. J. Preston, of Princeton, N. J., Mrs Theodore Roosevelt, Sr., 68, lives quietly at Oyster Bay; Mrs. | Woodrow Wilson, the youngest, 59, lives m Washington in the same house where Mr. Wilson dietL She is the most active of any of the widows. Mrs. Taft 68, livesTin s'Musion since the death of her husband, March 8, 1930. Mrs. Roosevelt is the only one of the widows who receive the government pension ot *o,000 a year. Mrs. Wilson declined it; Mrs Cleveuinas second marriage ended .her pension; Mrs Harrison was not entitled to one, because she married Mr Har- Si after he retired from the presidency, and Mrs. Taft's pension has not yet been considered. THE TEMPERATE MR. MARSHALL Cedar Rapids Gazette-Republican: Testimony of the last three days of last week at Des Moines was, n the opinion of Ihe Gazette-Republican, as revealing ways throw off some water, but in this state their ability to do so i much reduced. The dropsy, or wate in the tissues, is accompanied b salt and there is a reduction in th ability pf the kidneys to excret that substance also. ; Dietetic treatment Â· attempts, t cut down the substances which ar poorly excreted by the kidney to th level of the kidney's capacity. Th is the dry salt-free diet. Th amount of liquid the patient take depends on the amount of urine s creted. Fluids in the diet includ 1 milk, water and other beverages and ---- soups. One to one and a half quarts Dr. Clendening of liquid a day are all that is allowed if dropsy is present. Since most of these cases occur in children, this is a difficult order to carry out. ' A salt-free diet is one not easy, to plan. It is surprising how much salt there is in foods commonly used. In a glass of milk there is about one-half a gram of salt. If, however, no salt is used in cooking and none sprinkled on the food, if unsalted butter, salt- free bread and distilled water are used the amount of salt in a day's ration is reduced to about 2 grams. Considering that 20 grams is the average necessity in health this is about as far as we can safely go. A salt-free diet in practice is as follows: Salt-free bread, 200 grams; salt-free butter, 50 grams- salt-free beans or'rice, 250 grams; meat (beef, chicken'or mutton), 200 grams (sail-free); sugar, 40 grams. Contains one to two grams of salt, 1,500 cal_ chop, 50 grams; butter, 20 grams';'rice, 100 grams; sugar, 40 grams. 12 noon. Bread, GO grams; roast beef, 100 grams; butter, 20 grams; beans, 150 grams. 5 p. m. Bread, 80 grams; butter, 20 grams; chicken, 50 grams. , A feature of treatment in this type of case is that protein and meat products should not be cut down The patienls are often losing as much as 30 to 60 grams of protein a day in the form of albumin cast off in the urine, and this should be replaceo*. If they excrete as much as 60 grams in this way that is close to the daily minimum requirement of the body iino -.MO of kidney disease is not hopeless. Many cases recover, and all efforts at treatment are worth while. SSeSSSsSsSSS! BO-BROADWAY lives. Word has' been received here from Miss Eva Tur' matism.

And this much is certain. A majority of the -750,000 visitors had a good time and went away pleased with their visit. A lot ot people who don't know very much about New York call it inhospitable. The old burg has many faults; but not that particular one. New Yorkers take a real interest in entertaining visitors. It's the most truly cosmopolitan city in the country. 1V-ILL 'EM WITH KINDNESS-- ISv.
