The soviet commissar for foreign affairs who negotiated lor Hussian recognition with Roosevelt in 1933 and was a similar figure in European diplomacy has been rudely kicked out. Anastas Ivanovich Mikojan, keen-eyed Armenian who forged to the front as commissar of trade, now has become the most important man in Moscow. Litvinoff was the closest approach communism had to a diplomat. For years he walked with kings and capitalists, but kept his proletarian touch. It was dangerous diplomacy for Commissar Litvinoff, .however, because it involved too many changes of costume and character. In Moscow he was forced to be a humble government official in seedy clothes or plain uniform. In order to correctly represent the world's largest country at .Geneva, Washington, or Paris this same Maxim Litvinoff had to change hastily to diplomatic full dress and work in the champagne caviar atmosphere of world diplomacy. For years Moscow suspected him, and his enemies have finally" put him on the shelf. His successor as contact man with the capitalist world, Anastas Mikojan, is now. the most courted man for export business in Europe. He is placing orders for 200 million dollars worth of machinery, armor plate, and naphtha. Siberian gold has been massed against these foreign purchases and Russia is no longer begging for credit or bartering for machinery. In recent months the Moscow government has taken to cover. It has virtually dispensed with its commissariat of foreign affairs. Foreign trade commissions who would do business with the U. S. S. H. must now go to Moscow and do business on Moscow's terms. This shift in soviet chiefs from diplomacy to trade indicates that Russia is taking a realistic view of its coming clash with Japan. DE-LOW DAILY SCRAP BOOK By Scott EYE Sterile Statesmanship ·pACK in the days when war and its inequities ·° as between those who donned the uniform and those who did not were fresh in the thinking cU America, the two parties adopted strongly worded planks favorable to the. universal draft principle. The republican party in 1924 stated its conviction in these words: "We believe that in time of war the nation should draft fop its defense not only its citizens but also every resource which' may contribute to success. The country demands that should the United States ever again be called upon to defend itself by arms the president be empowered to draft such material resources and such services as may be required, and to stabilize the prices of services and essential commodities, whether utilized in actual warfare or private activities." And the democratic platform contained the following pledge: "War is a relic of barbarism, and'it is justified only as a means of defense. In the event of war in which the man power of the nation is drafted, all other resources should likewise be drafted. This will tend to discourage war by depriving it of Us profits." Today, with war pretty much blurred in memory, the inequalities of 1917-18 have been superseded in our national thinking, it seems, by an academic fear that the universal draft act would place too much power in the hands of the president. There remains, however, a fundamental absurdity in a situation which lets one man get rich back home while his neighbor, drafted into service, is getting maimed or killed on the battlefield. That was the situation back in the days of the World war and there is every reason for believing that the conditions will be the same in connection with the next war. ; It's a pretty sterile statesmanship that can't both recognize and correc^uch a problem. * * * 10 Rules for Tax Cutting A SURVEY of tax-reduction methods employed ^^ with effectiveness in the various states of this country suggested the following fundamental rules of action: 1. Organize a small, diversified group of businessmen. 2. Demand the facts on government spending. 3. Demand the facts on taxes. 4. Put the facts to work. 5. Modernize local government. 6. Keep out of partisan politics. 7. Fight self-seeking citizens. 8. Keep a sharp eye on the results. 9. Give credit where credit is due. 10. Keep eternally at it The one cardinal rule not listed here, however, is: Confine government to those areas which it is supposed to occupy. Government becomes exorbitantly costly only when the people look to government for those things which under the American system they have always heretofore provided for themselves. * * * If Democracy Is to Live J AN MASARYK, son of the first president of Czechoslovakia and minister from that republic to Great Britain prior to the Hitler control of Czechoslovakia through the Munich agreement, in effect says that interest in democratic government must be aroused by bringing the youth of a democratic country to a knowledge of its blessings. Talking in a Chicago address of conditions in the United States Masaryk said: "In this country citizens take too much for granted. They take 60 per cent for granted and grouse about the other 40 per cent. That is a tendency of democracies, to become drab, slow, anemic. It can be changed, rejuvenated, and not by force, either. It can be done by teaching our children to be proud to be free." We agree with the Czechoslovakian that the young people of this nation must not be allowed to forget the priceless value of the freedom this democracy affords. It is a heritage which they should prize so highly that love of their country should be the strongest sentiment in their breasts. We can think of at least three attorneys general in the past twenty-five years under whom the highway patrol would be only slightly better off than under its present administration. * * * Ultimate victory in an industrial controversy almost always comes to the side which merits and has public opinion on its side. * * * A Chicagoan writing for the Tribune concedes that New York has some of the best judges that money can buy. » * * Czechoslovakia has paid the penalty which attaches to being little and weak in the Europe of today. * * * The one sure way to get out a heavy vote in the United States would be to tell folks that they can't. * « * Hell week around a college fraternity house may properly be referred to as "lower education." * * * Adolf Hitler stands revealed once more as the world's public enemy No. 1. * * * Patriotism is something no country can live without. PROS and CONS Some interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchanges Iowa's Backwoods Marital Laws Northwood Anchor: Aside from the fees brought into the state to counties, ministers, justices of the peace and mayors, there is not one single thing to be said for these right-now marriages which give Iowa reputation not at all enviable. It is believed that much unhappiness and actual misery could be prevented if every state in the union would adopt uniform marriage and divorce laws based on Christianity and common sense and not on the amount of money brought into the state by fee-paying applicants. The Example of Cardinal Facelli Austin, Minn., Herald: If more of the youth of today were imbued with the spirit of young Pacelli, there would be less need for alphabetical organizations and relief agencies. The man who has reached the top rung of the ladder in his chosen profession did so not through pressure groups and their. organizations of hate but on the basis of scholarship, merit and individual achievement. Want More Bund Meetings Oelwein Register: In view of the fact that German-American bund got fay so well with their big meeting in New York, they propose to hold another such meeting in Chicago. Mayor La Guardia of New York decided that it was all right to hold such a meeting there. We wonder just what attitude the mayor of CHicago will take under similar circumstances. ·When Strikes Affect tbe Public Lake Mills Graphic: If labor leaders were smart, they would not continue this "public-be- damned" policy, as evidenced in Minneapolis this past week in the strike of elevator operators. No group can aggravate the public and in the long run succeed in putting over their program, whatever it may be. Curb the Propaganda Agencies Garner Leader: It is time that America takes certain and specific steps to curb activity of propaganda agencies. For if such steps are not taken, America is certain to find itself embroiled and in the thick of any European wars that may develop. If It Happened in Germany Nora Springs Advertiser: What do you suppose would happen to some one who spoke of Herr Hitler in Berlin as Adolf Hitlervitch, after the same manner that a nazi bund leader recently spoke of Franklin D. Hosenfeld in New York? Let Him Hike Webster City Freeman-Journal: When a hitchhiker asks you for a ride the safe thing is to tell him to keep right on hiking without a hitch. . . . Walking is good exercise and the majority of fellows out begging rides need exercise. The Theory Back of Slid own Strikes Decorah Journal: It would be about as ridiculous for the "hired man" and the "hired girl" to sit down in the farm or city home and take possession of factories and stores owned by their employers in large cities. * * * They'll Build a Monument to Him! Sioux City Tribune: We will maintain that the greatest benefactor the human race could ever hope to know would bs the scientist who found the means to lick Ol' Man Flu. Right by Mistake, It Seems Marshalltown Times: Roosevelt is opposed to a referendum on the question of declaring war. The president occasionally is right, and this is one of the occasions. Against Farm-to-Market Bill Algona Upper DCS Moines: The farm-to-market road bill, as proposed, is a farce. MAIL BAG HAP KO SIEVES AMP .PURINA -ffa=. i-OKCJ SER.MOHS/1HE.

Pepin to | thank for these tables ' showing graphically the high cost of speed in fuel consumption and in wear and tear on car--as .presented recently by the Interesting Letters Up to 250 Words Are Welcome WE'RE ON THE PAN AGAIN! OOMEWHERE IN N. E. IOWA--Fred was right VJ only he didn't make it strong enough. You are unfair. I was going to say you are almost as unfair editorially as your beloved Chi.-Trib. EAN is almost on a par with K. Clarence with his "I Hate Roosevelt and the New Deal" and "Know-It-All" Paul is in the same class. Otherwise you're O. K. As far as the two parties are concerned it is just a case of tweedledee and tweedleduirV and although I still call myself a republican--a Lincoln republican--I would like to see it clean house. I'm getting 30 d tired of jumping all over the ballot looking for an honest man to vote for. And when I hear some of these "dyed in the wool" brothers belly-aching I would like to ask them what their "racket" was or why. The rugged individualism of the Harding- Coolidge-Hoover era has produced the ragged individual of today but stiil business cannot see that only as the laborer prospers does the nation prosper. Lincoln said: "Labor is prior to and independent of capital. . . . Capital is only the fruit of labor and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. . . . Labor is the superior of capital and deserves much the higher consideration." Join me In the sewage ditch, you well paid, clothed, fed and housed swivel chair warmers. Stand in the wet, sticky clay; break the lime stone and heave it up on top. Then if you are able to straighten up take a look at the blue sky. It is the same sky you see from your window. You may wax poetic over it but I cannot. It isn't so bright today. The economy howlers say we've been fed long enough. I am waiting for the axe to fall and I am wondering--I am worrying. Sincerely, W. P. AYER REMEMBER? From Globe-Gazette Files THIRTY YEAES AGO-Neal Somers, T. E. Wagner, S. R. Miles and D. McArthur were in Dougherty today where they talked county fair and sold some stock. Charles Fatten and son, Joseph, arrived home last evening from California where Mr. Pat ton spent the winter, his son having been there for some time previous. Mrs. Fatten accompanied' them as far on the way home as Lincoln, Nebr., where she stopped for a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Pritchard. Master Joe has not been converted to the weather and is very firm in his conviction that Iowa winters' are far ahead of California winters so far as comfort is concerned. TWENTY YEARS AGO-The organization meeting ol the school board ·will be held at the high school tonight. The of- · ficers of the board will be elected at this meeting and the new president will appoint the committees for the coming year. Contracts for the plumbing and heating of the Memorial school building are to be let March 27. The Lenten tea one of a series being given by the Delta Alpha class of the Congregational church will be held this Saturday at the home o£ Mrs. Lloyd Tail, 320 Twelfth street northwest. Mrs. Frank Spears will speak on "The Home Fires in France." TEN YEARS AGO-That flood conditions in Mason City are over as far as this winter's snow is concerned seemed assured Saturday when the water level in Willow creek had sunk to 18 inches above the dam. The water level has been receding steadily since Friday noon due chiefly to cooler weather. Flood areas were gradually returning to normalcy and" unless heavy rains should come within the next few days the danger is past, according to City Manager P. F. Hopkins who together with City Engineer C. H. Stevens and Engineer Carl Patchen, of the city street department, has been in charge of the work of keeping the Willow creek channel open. Seventeen friends surprised Mrs. W. J. Hart Friday afternoon at her home 537 Eighteenth street southeast, in honor of her birthday anniversary. ABOUT BOOKS By John Selby The Peoples Library: "HERE COMES LABOR," by Chester M. Wright; "WHICH WAY AMERICA?" by Lyman Bryson; "LET ME THINK," by H. A. Overstrcet (all Macmillan: 5.60.) O NE of the more promising book series of recent years is beginning this week with the publication of the first three titles in what will be called" "The People's Library." Although it is a commercial venture in the same sense that nearly all hook puhlications are, it is based on a study of what the public wants in informative books made by the American Association for Adult Education with funds granted by the Carnegie corporation. Briefly, the things the public said it wanted were clarity, treatment not too technical but not oversimplified either, and readability. People learn faster and better, psychologists insist, if the process brings them enjoyment. The committee in charge of the series (of which six volumes have heen announced although only three are issued this month), contains these names: Charles A. Beard, the historian; Morse A. Cartwright, director of the aforenamed association; George P. Brett, Jr., representing the publisher, and Lyman Bryson of Columbia university. At least six other titles in addition to the six so far announced will be prepared, and the price will be kept very low--although bound in boards, the volumes are only a little more than the latest paper-backed publisher gets for his product. "Which Way America" is a quiet, lucid and honest explanation of the three major political philosophies: Fascism, communism and democracy. Dr. Lyman Bryson lectures a good deal, and those who have heard him will see that his book has the same quality of intimacy combined with authority that his talks have. Chester M. Wright's "Here Comes Labor" is rather more temperate than one would expect from the head of a labor news service. It is designed to present briefly the background one should know if one is to understand what is printed in newspapers today about the labor situation. Most of us have read much of Mr. Wright's material in those same newspapers, and forgotten it And "L«t Me Think" is a philosopher's earnest effort to give principles which can help a man to help himself in this somewhat confusing world. Dr. Overstreet has the most difficult assignment of all, but manages pretty well with it. This is a good antidote for certain recent self-help books.

ADVICE ON USE OF PLANES A DVICE which should be given to people who have had attacks of heart disease and who want to use airplanes is somewhat contradictory. Altitudes make people with heart disease uncomfortable but are not necessarily dangerous, especially if they are not left in a high altitude for any length of time. Physicians who practice in cities where the altitude is high, such as Colorado Springs and Denver, tell me they have plenty of patients with heart disease who are quite comfortable and who recover from angina quite as well in that altitude as anywhere else. As a matter of record, I find that only one death from coronary thrombosis is known to have occurred to an airplane passenger in transit, and even in that case it is not certain that (he flying and the altitude contributed to the death. Patients Jwho have recovered from an- Igina or coronary thrombosis Dr Clendenimr sf ? em to fly with P erfect safety. Jjr. uienaenme since the American air lines today carry several million passengers and yet we do not hear of any heart deaths, it must be assumed that flying is not dangerous to a patient with a well-compensated heart. On sn average run an airplane seldom gets over 8,000 feet. I have been in an airplane which has gotten as high as 15,000 feet, which is 1,000 feet higher than Pike's Peak, and found that breathlessness was quite noticeable but no real damage was done and no permanent effects were" noted. Discomfort which occurs in airplanes may be due to airplane sickness or altitude sickness and may not necessarily be due to any heart change whatever. A great deal of the reactions that these passengers experience is emotional.. Some insist that they cannot stand altitude flying and get sick as soon as a certain elevation is reached. I have heard the story of a woman who developed pain around the heart at an altitude of 10,000 feet The pilot was informed of this and put the plane into a slight descent. In a few minutes the woman was informed that the plane had descended 2,000 feet. She said she was feeling much better and could notice prompt relief from her previous symptoms. But, as a matter of fact, the plane had only descended 200 feet. It_is even safer for passengers with heart disease in an airplane than it would be if they were in a mountain altitude because -they keep more still, they sit quietly in their seats, exerting no energy, and can readily compensate for any changes in air pressure. There are a great many things about airplane flying that have not yet been worked out. One is the effect of sedatives at a high altitude. It is generally considered by all pilots and hostesses who have had experience, that sedatives of any kind are likely to produce a violent reaction when a high altitude is reached. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS M. F.: "Is yellow mercuric oxide safe to use on eyelashes to promote their growth? Would it help falling lashes?" Answer--The ointment of yellow mercuric oxide in two per cent strength is used as an antiseptic in the eye. If the falling lashes are due to infection, this will help them, but it does not of itself stimulate growth of lashes.

Commercial Motive --i,.,,^ want to congratulate the RSjUlg Mason City service men's *?"* organization which recently refused to lend its name to the sale of safety seals on a very questionable basis. An outsider came in with the seals and the proposition was that he was to put a group of salesmen to work on door-to-door solicitation and take 50 cents out of each dollar received. It was a good enough deal for him but it wasn't designed to promote the cause of safety to any appreciable degree. As a matter of fact both it and the sponsoring organization are harmed under a setup which is so obviously commercial. This and every other community should 'be vigilant against those who seek to cash in on the woi-thiest of causes for personal profit.

World Does Move guess we'll have to recog- · nize that this is a changing world--whether we will it that way or not. This thought is suggested to me by the news dispatch stating that the first electric trolley line in the Un/ted States has given up the ghost and bus service was inaugurated between Sunbury and Northumberland. It has been a good fight, one strangely finished in so many communities long before the first trolley service in the United States suspended. The glories of yesterday have a way of becoming the curiosities ol today. IFF Days" ·-\ clx ·) To THE HEV. WILLIAM GALBRETH--for his magnificent job of "being a friend of man."
