A CTION ot six of the big' steel companies, in agreeing to negotiate with union representatives following on the heels of the Chrysler and Genera! Motors decision to discuss wages, hours and working conditions,;,is cause for a sigh of relief. . There is not much question that if the well-known companies, some of them subsidiaries of "big steel," .have made negotiation with "union representative's their policy, that other elements o£ the steel industry will follow the same course. Steel makers are well-known for their co-operation in matters of policy. There is therefore reasonable hope that this spring will not see a great battle on this most dangerous of industrial fronts. The country does not want to see another Homestead. It may be that negotiations will fail, and that there will not be the steel peace that every one earnestly hopes for. But it is infinitely better to .talk it over first, on both sides, than to climb into the trenches and start firing before the differences between employers and employes have been at least explored. · Under present-day conditions, the side which rejects overtures for discussion goes into any struggle which may 'follow with the weight of public opinion against it. Every one knows that every strike, eventually, must be settled by negotiation, and if the negotiations come first and by good fortune eliminate the strike, then loss and damage and possible bloodshed have been escaped to the general benefit. AH but a few recalcitrant die-hards who think in the same channels as "Divine Right" Baer of the nineties will applaud the decision of the sleel companies. And it is equally up to the unions to be reasonable and fair. The companies have met them halfway, and if they take that fairminded attitude as an opening into which to thrust unreasonable and undemocratic demands, it will be they who start with two strikes on them. Let them keep away from matters of labor union politics in their proposals, and confine their demands to legitimate matters in which labor and in- .dustry have common interests Whether John Lew' --is or William Green is the big shot in organized ·labor is a strictly ^private matter in wlilch neither the steel industry nor the' public has an interest, and it will be unfair--and by the same token risky ---if any effort is made to win an internal labor victory by an attack on the innocent by-stander. The most devastating argument against the proposal to enlarge the supreme court is that the next reactionary president and congress could use the same method to pack the^supreme court their way, Until a Literary Digest poll comes along and confirms us in it, we are going to cling to our belief that the country at large is against packing the supreme court. Violinist Rubinoff kissed his lawyer at the con- culsion of his breach of promise suit but it is understood that wasn't the full extent of the lawyer's fee. : Holland may-be a bit backward, wearing wooden shoes and the like. But she hasn't been mixed up in a major war in more than 100 years. Illinois had to pick on Iowa when she was down to win back the corn king championship. If a fellow's going to strike, doing it sitting down would certainly have its points. Harry Lauder is now on his seventh farewell trip through Australia. It's about time for that first robin. PROS and CONS A LONE DEMOCRATIC VOTE Decorah Public Opinion: Our congratulations are hereby extended to Senator Sam Goetsch of. Winneshiek and Howard counties for his vote in the state senate last Wednesday in opposition 'to the proposal by President Roosevelt which would enable him to pack or control the United States supreme court. Senator. Goetsch on that issue was the lone democratic senator to vote not as a partisan, but as a truly patriotic American who appreciates the importance to every citizen, from the poorest to the richest, of a judiciary that is politically independent. We also believe that the senator represented the views of a large majority of his constituents. TROUBLE FOR ALL THE BOYS Rock Hapids Reporter: Utterback doesn't like Kellar; Kraschel doesn't like Ditto--and countless other politicians, in this and other states in the union, are up to their ears in trouble that comes with party success. Political parties defeat themselves so it is said. And it's apparent that the first rifts which may unseat the new deal in the nation and certainly in the stale, are already beginning to appear. Harmony is the secret of most any and every success--particularly success at the polls. A RULE ABOUT REPRINTING Webster Cily Freeman-Journal: The Jf'reeman- Journal is in receipt of anonymous 'communication criticizing it for copying frequently from the bioux City Journal, declaring that "you often condemn the Journal, yet quote freely from its columns. Well, the Freeman-Journal often agrees with the Sioux City paper. It is more often in agreement than in disagreement. However, copying editorials from the Journal, or from any other paper, doesn't mean indorsement at all. A DEMOCRAT DISILLUSIONED Stanton, Va., News-Leader: Until Mr. Roosevelt s subterfuge of reorganization of the judiciary we had been in accord with his declared objectives of aiding of masses of our people, and had swal- DAILY .SCRAP BOOK by Scott YEARS V/ORXD-WIDE- SUBMARWE.

Kansas City Justice QIX Kansas City election workers were sentenced 40 to federal penitentiary, in addition to a policeman sentenced to .jail, for conspiracy charges arising from November election activities. Four women, who pleaded no defense and testified for the prosecution were placed on probation. Democratic precinct captains and poll judges xvere generally given two and three year sentences by Federal Judge Merrill E. Otis for "overzealous" ballot-counting and wholesale vote thefts. Their conviction was-the result of testimony of scores of witnesses that they voted straight republican ticket only to have these ballots changed to straight democratic. So ends the Kansas City election clean-up, without touching any of the higher-ups in the Pendergast organization. Kansas City's political bosses were not mentioned in the investigation. Precinct captains took the "rap," even to the extent of prison sentences. If the Kansas City investigation had attempted to link Boss Pendergast with what happened in precinct politics on ejection day, the investigation certainly misfired. Boss politics in Kansas City got off better than expected, with the little fel-' lows getting the worst of it all the way. Fate of a Deadbeat Debtor QREAT BRITAIN probably now wishes that it '·''had not turned deadbeat in the payment of its debt to · this nation. That country needing foreign loans to finance its great increase of naval armament plan needs to borrow ?4,ObO,ODO,00'0. It is looking around for bankers willing to extend this credit. It wistfully eyes the United States as a. purchaser for its bonds. In view of its past record of default in payments on a loan from the government of this country Great Britain does not dare suggest we hand over any money to finance its war preparedness. The approach of the English officials to the loan plan is instead diplomatic. It suggests that this country lend money to the impoverished nations of Europe as a way of preventing an international war. The United States will not fall for the bait Foreign entanglements either through alliances oilcans are not popular in this country. England will have to look elsewhere for the replenishing of its treasury to finance its desires to retain such - lowed^some,^highly questionable: policies-^because Of his courage m challenging seIfisti.vihterests. re Hra- trickery an the supreme court xtuiveH- not "only' makes it necessary to suspect -all future recommendations, but to question his ultimate objectives. A CATHOLIC VIEWPOINT ' Dubuque Witness: We Catholics are a minority and an unpopular minority at that. We Catholics would be the first to suffer from any curtailment of liberty or from any tyranny of a majority. The worst of all tyrannies is the tyranny of a majority; the meanest of all tyrannies, because the most hypocritical, is a parliamentary majority. The supreme court and the constitution qf the United States are bulwarks of the Catholic church. PERSISTENT COUGHS IMPORTANT rpHE SEVERE epidemic or what was generally ,, called flu throughout the United States during the winter now ending, has left a number of people witli a persistent and irritating cough, and we have received many inquiries as to what to do about this. 1 he cough has been quite thoroughly studied, even to the extent of talcing volunteer patients and putting hollow needles into the .. pleural cavity in the space be- U tween the lung and the chest wall in order to measure the changes EARLIER DAYS IN MASON CITY rotd hr G l o h e . nxette Flle» TOLL BRIDGES NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT Eagle Grove Eagle: We fail to enthuse over any proposition to buy up the toll bridges on our Nebraska and Illinois borders. With still so much to be done within our osvn borders in the line of road improvement, especially farm to market roads, it does not seem like good judgment to start buying up inter-state bridges. Let's let the government do that and then, if we must leave the state, use the free bridges, or pay the fee.

Have Something to Say If You Want to Write dgM^plan to keep near me from ES«£s now on this bit of advice *« 6 ^ from Robert Quillen to his daughter, who had just confided in him the information that she was about to seek a career of writing. The glamor of it had attracted her, as it does thousands of others. But, as Mr. Quillen points out getting the desire to write and being able to write salable material are separated.by a wide expanse of hard work and discouragement. The training for professional writing is not unlike t h a t for being a doctor or a lawyer. It involves . long, dready apprenticeship to ab sorb the tricks of the trade. That's usually the case. But not always. Once in a while--but I'll let Mr. Quillen tell his own story: "Nobody is born with the ability to practice law or medicine, while one literate person in a million can write a masterpiece at the first attempt. He can do it because he his a story to tell or a message to deliver and writing 'is merely another way of talking. "If you wish In write, I must ask jou: 'What is it that you wish to say? What is, in you that is clamoring for expression?' "For- skill alone'will'avail you nothing unless you have some- thin? to say. The skill of the lawyer and a doctor is useless without a client or a patient. "If you can write with charm and grace, and have something to say, you can produce literature; but charm and grace and technical skill can do nothing, unless they, have something to work on. "One of the new and successful books was written by a Negro maid who could neither spell nor punctuate, yet achieved literature because she had something to tell." --o-- ' , · Iowa Goose Brought ?22,000 in Wartime -g.^ hope some day to get a. Kgsig detailed story about Iowa «S^ Falls' $22,000 goose which was featured once in one of Robert Ripley's "Believe It or Not" releases. Ever hear of it? All I know about it is that it came into prominence back in 1918. Whose idea it was, I'don't know. But the fowl was made an instrument for inducing the citizens of (he Iowa Falls community to kick in, according to their means, for Red Cross and other / war relief agencies. According to my informant, A. K:, the bird was dressed in' cap and hood and led up and down the streets, identified as a. "sugar Hoarder." AH who remember the war period will recall how unpopular a sugar hoarder was in those days. J. W. Brown served as auctioneer.

The total value of the .estate was placed between 20 and 30 millions _ That only serves to emphasize the romance of Brisbane's life, a story so familiar in the careers of distinguished men in the country and now the subject of speculation as to whether it shall hao- pen again. Brisbane started life in humble circumstances. He gave up a job at a considerable sacrifice in salary in order to accept another he thought offered greater opportunity. The closing years of his career are well known to the American .public. But few men worked more incessantly or prodigi- THE PEDDIE IDEA RAKE--The "Peddie Idea" had no mortgage load on livestock. There was no interest load on livestock. " It was used 50 years ago with the early settlers who settled on the virgin prairies of Palo Alto and other Iowa counties. The writer is not able to say how far and wide the "Peddie Way" spread out, but it did work from Emmetsburg out among the early pioneers in Palo Alto and Emmet counties with excellent results. Alexander Peddie was a land agent operating with syndicate capital, principally Scottish money. Since he was a Scotlander himself, he induced many Scottish settlers to come to America and get a real start toward a competency. He did not confine his plan to the Scottish people only. Other nationalities were offered the same privilege. · His plan can also be called the "livestock way." Bankers and financial men will very likely think at once "How is that done without a chattel mortgage?" There is no mortgage about it. The "mortgage" way" does not pay dividends both ways as safely as the "Peddie way." Mr. Peddie would buy ten cows and rent them to the pioneers on a three-year contract. During the term of this contract not an animal was sold without a cause. AH'-the increase of the herd was to be kept up in normally good condition by the settler until the end of the contract. Then Mr. Ped?i? -? n d , t n e new "Weir would divide the increase. While the contract was in force the settler had to furnish the feed and protection for the cattle and take care of them with ordinary sensible diligence Considering the various conditions of the elements, environments, equipments, etc., of the present in comparison to the pioneer times of SO years ago, there might be some special conditions or terms, placed into a contract ot this kind now that were not considered at that time. This could be worked out by the contracting parties. Fifty years ago on the prairies of the plains dairy products were not taken into account. -The settler got all the milk except that he must not let the calves suffer. · A ny Part of our big country that has had a setback--like the drought stricken areas, or the flood devastated areas--might profit by the "Peddie w a y " · · yf.

Long ago in the canyons of the eastern slopes of the Sierra they toiled slowly up the ravines looking for outeroppings, looking for the precious stuff. They'd take a few samples and wash the dirt in a tiny spring and find a few cents' worth of gold in their pans and set up their rockers and go to work. And then they'd curse a heavy blue stuff that clogged their rockers and made it almost impossible for a fellow to get out enough gold to pay for grub and tarantula juice whisky.
