Without actual bloodshed, but nevertheless by sheer force, the republic which was the one abiding gain to the democratic principle from the World war, has been destroyed, and^its people brought under German domination. Slovakia, now nominally independent as the result o£ the actions o£ the last two days, is virtually a German protectorate. Bohemia and Moravia have simply been swallowed into the German rcich--despite all the German propaganda about the rights of minorities. France and England, the "democracies" of President Roosevelt's recent policy, have not lifted a finger, nor even made a diplomatic remonstrance for the record. If Hitler dominated Europe alter , Munich, his position is now immensely stronger, his empire larger. And his goal is coming into view--the goal set forth in that curious book, "Mein Kampf." It-is the rich Ukraine, divided between Poland and Russia, with Russia having the greater share. The occupation of Czechoslovakia--no more, now, than a name in history--is to remove the obstacles to the eastward march. There remains only the embattled province of "Carpatho-Uk- raine"--Ruthenia--and the common border between Poland and Rumania, separating nazi Germany from the Russian border. The distance is less than 200 miles. Why Hungary is driving an army in hot haste, across Ruthenia, in imminent risk of a clash with the Poles advancing from the north, thus becomes apparent. Germany and Hungary are cooperating; Poland and Rumania are allies. Both Poland and Hungary have been flirting with Germany, but with reserve. Now that Hitler's course is clear the flirtation must be regarded as over for the next inevitable step is the conquest of the Polish Ukraine as a nucleus of the larger Ukraine which Hitler envisages. The present danger to peace is that the Ger: mans will clash with Poland, thus bringing into play the Franco-Polish alliance, which has been furbished up lately after having languished for . several years while Poland sought rapprochement with Hitler. Colonel Beck, Polish foreign minister, is reported to have refused to contribute the Polish Ukraine to Hitler's ambitions in a momentous interview at Berchtesgaden a few weeks ago, and to have promised Hitler war if he attempted to carry out his plan anyhow. It is now squarely up to the Poles, for Hitler has made no bones about his aggression. Hence, no doubt, the extreme reserve with which the Polish army has acted in the mad scramble, in which Czech, German, Slovak and Hungarian armies were all pursuing different objectives within a few miles of : each other. The Polish army silently lined its .borders, and waited. Russia, plainly the ultimate objective, meanwhile lies silent and unmoving. Her only word in the crisis was a statement from War Minister Voroshilov that the soviet army was now twice as large as in 1935, that the Russian airfleet could launch 6,000 bombers in a few hours. But Russia seems content to await attack--perhaps because her difficulties with Japan are coming to a head just now In the quarrel over the Siberian fisheries and the repeated Japanese attacks along the Manchurian border. Japan, faithful to her axis allies, is creating the necessary diversion in the far east to keep Russia from moving in fear of war on two fronts, half the world apart. ' Why France and England are silent may be rht"V". he uns P° ken - underlying strategv of Chamberlains appeasement policy. To Chamberlain, as to Hitler, the real enemv is R u sian communism. It has been his apparent aim to f ee H tier from apprehension in the west that he might move east and embroil himself with Russia, either to succeed or to perish in the arms of the bear_,n either case to keep war out of western Europe and away from the British empire.

PROS and CONS Some Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchanges It's Still Hoover Dam Charles City Press: According to the latest returns it is still Hoover dam. In the early part of the.administration Secretary of the Interior Ickes through some personal resentment changed the name to Boulder dam which has so generally been recognized since that time, but recently it has been made public that the transfer was illegal *o it remains "Hoover dam." As an engineer he had gathered all the details together from the different states so his name was naturally recognized with that enterprise. Public Officials Do Pay Taxes Algona Advance: Many people are of the impression that salaried public officers pay no in come taxes, but if the salaries are big enough they do. But they pay only one tax, not two as we in Iowa do. The state does not tax federal salaries and the federal government does not tax state salaries; and that's what the present shooting in con- w es £- ls _* abo , ut - The biU utlder consideration at Washington looks to taxation both ways, and most observers seem to think that is what ought to be done. Gomg Too Far He Thinks Hampton Chronicle: Why take away any of the law enforcement divisions from the office o£ the attorney general, where it now is and where it belongs? Why take away from the state secretary of agriculture his authorityy to operate the business of that office in the way in which it was intended by the legislature which provided the law in the first place and in the way the people now want it operated? Fed Up on Wagner Law Marshalltown Times-Hepublican: Congressman Harrsngton. plain and faithful new dealer, has a bellyful of the Wagner law and its labor board ihe Sioux City strike brought the two together at the congressman's front door. It requires only similar experiences to bring conviction of the utter unfairness of the law and the arrogance of a board. Both should be obliterated. Brookharf Again Heard Oelwein Register: Smith Brookhart has again had something to say for publication. This time tie says Roosevelt should have a third term as president and a fourth term also. It requires something unusual for Brookhart to get his name 'n the newspapers now, but he can generally be relied upon to say something drastic. They're Blaming the Ex-Iowans Boone News-Republican: Now they're blaming the ex-Iowans in California for instigating those silly pension schemes. If there's anythin" to the accusation maybe it's because the ex-Hawkeyes come from a sort of heaven-on-earth state where anything seems possible. Or maybe the ex's had better come home and get down to earth again. Appropriate Ceremony Boone News-Republican: The old Alabama state flag has gone home to Montgomery, properly Bicoited by three lowans. That was a nice little ceremony attendant on the flag's return which made for stronger bonds of friendship between these widely separated sister states. Time lor Another Picnic Manly Signal: The rift between the administration and congress is getting so wide that it is about time for another picnic on an island in Chesapeake bay. Shirting to the Right Sibley Gazette-Tribune: If Harry Hopkins continues to change his attitude toward business, he may soon be listed as a real conservative.

MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DAILY SCRAP BOOK By Scott E YE MAIL BAG Interesting Letters Up to 250 Words Are Welcome DWELL IN PEACE For a dozen years the Tribune boasted how even before the advent of prohibition, there had been a voluntary refusal on its part to accept hard liquor advertising. All those years it was the hero of its own story. Then came repeal and from the first day that it u-as possible, the Tribune has simulated a house organ for a distillery. Repeal has meant hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Chicago Tribune. Its story for those dozen years of prohibition has been miserably in discount. Doctor Wilson, we're told, should have confined his efforts to a stimulation of temperance as Distinguished from prohibition. The question arises: What is the Chicago Tribune contributing to lift cause of temperance at present 1 .'

Vagrant Thoughts By Lou Mallory Luke of Hampton TI7ENT a-dreamin' last night and found myself TM" out on the desert at Palm Springs, Cal.. where I was sun-lazing a year ago now. Up around Banning the almond and peach tree blooms were sweeping across the orchards. The lavender of the dessert verbena was spreading far and wide. As twilight fell Sand mountain was like a huge chameleon turning from palest pink to deep purple. The Ted flags of the ocotillo cactus fluttered from thousands of slender spikes. The highways and byways were bordered with blooming acacias filled with humming bees. Their drone in the desert silence almost t-naesthetizes one. Every night I stood spell bound as I looked at Orion caught on the very peak o£ Mt. San Jacinto The desert does something to you. What? . . Mrs Horace French, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. J.' B.

MODICUM OF RELIEF FOR DEAF 'pHE first hearing aid man used was the palm of ·*· his own hand. By cupping his external ear he focused and thereby intensified sound waves on the ear drum. Man alone of all the animals uses artificial means to increase hearing. To this day the hand is the most universal hearing aid. Mechanical aids to hearing of almost every description and land--tubes and trumpets, and fans, and canes, etc.--are all evidence of the continuous search of the deaf person for aid and comfort. The use of the electric hearing aids is of somewhat recent development, although it is probable that the telephone developed from Alexander Graham Bell's attempt to construct an electric hearing aid for his mother. The deaf person remained the forgotten man so far as hearing aids are concerned until a few years ago. Half a century Eenbally one, and only one, type o£ electric hearing aid was available for general use. Then in 1922 Hugo Lieber introduced the midget air receiver and two years later his booster amplifying unit. The modern otologist can determine the amount of impairment of hearing and also whether any hearing aid should be recommended. A certain level of deafness (technically a loss in excess of 2o decibels) should call for a hearing aid The common cause of chronic deafness is so- called catarrhal ear disease. In this form the neatness is chronic and progressive and accompanied by head noises. It is probably due to a progressive hardening of the bones and tissues of the middle ear. Some of the most remarkable work I have seen / »n S Jiffr - ?"£ ? n pa *j ents of Ms Mrt who had an artificial hole made from the outside of the temporal bone into the middle ear. This allows me current of air to move in and out and there is opportunity for breaking of adhesions and loosening the tissues, which have become hardened Today the deaf patient can get attention and a certatn modicum of relief. It is true that the situation is often discouraging and little or no improvement occurs even in the best of circumstances But at least the deaf patient is in a better position than he was 25 years ago when not only nothing was known but very little interest was displayed in his plight.

S '" 7 eminin = Hygiene" and The Care of. the Hair and Skin " Meadow Melodies By Roy Murray of Buffalo Center A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY F've done some heavy thinking And this is what I find Education won't help a big head Co-eds Spend More ! was interested to note that although the men students pay for the entertainment, mos'tly, the average co-ed at the University of Indiana spends more money than the average young man. At least such is the conclusion that has been drawn from a careful survey of the maintenance cost of students at the Indiana school. The figures show that the average woman student at the University of Indiana spends S663.29 a year while the average man student spends only $613.07. The difference comes in the cost of wearing apparel. The co-eds spend more for their clothes than their boy friends. It was found that one sophomore co-ed at the university spent $2,010 during the school year. --o-Believe It Or Not! would never have believed Jit, would you? But according to "Home Safety," publication of the National Safety council, men--not women--are chief victims of fatal home accidents, and are "quite as much in need of education in the art of safe living at home as are the women." "While it is true," to quote from the article, "that men are less likely to suffer minor injuries in home accidents, their chances of being killed are much greater than are those of women. "In a recent study of mortality among industrial policyholders of the Metropolitan Life Insurance company it was found that fata! accidents in the home were one and one-half times as frequent among males as among females in the broad age range 15 to 64 years. "This excess among males is the more remarkable when it is considered that at this time ot life, men spend a large part of their active hours away from home, in industry, while women's chief occupation is the care of the home. "A review of the circumstances surrounding these accidents as reported on the death records shows that falls off roofs, ladders, porches and balconies were much more frequent among men, a fact which suggests that many had attempted repair jobs for which they were not qualified or for which they did not have the proper tools. Falls down stairs, by far the most important type of fall, were also more frequent among men than among women. "Deaths from poisonous gas were three times as frequent among men. Illuminating gas was the lethal agency involved in three-fifths of the deaths, and automobile carbon monoxide gas in one-fourth of the deaths among males. "Firearms were the third most important cause of male mortality. OBSERVING but of little importance among women. Deaths due to cleaning guns or careless handling of loaded guns caused 1.2 deaths per 100,000 male policyholders but only 0.2 per 100,000 females. "By way of contrast, it is interesting to observe that accidental burns exclusive of those sustained in conflagrations, were the only type of home accident in which more women than men were injured fatally. Fatal burns In the home occur about twice as frequently among women as among men." Coaching Miracle don't know as this is v/rit- ten whether Mason City is going past the semi-finals. I've just come away from the office radio where I listened to that amazing Mohawk upset ot that highly touted Sac City quintet-a team that came to the stale tournament with perhaps more favor as a championship contender than any state tourney participant in recent,years. But what I want to say--and it's just as much deserved if the Mohawks get stopped in the semifinals as it will be if the" win the state title--is that t h e ' coaching assignment in the building of this year's team is the most amazing I have ever observed. The team which played the mighty Sac Indians to a standstill Friday afternoon is the same group of boys, with one exception, that made such a discouraging exhibition of basketball in that first game of the year. Remember "it? I know one dyed- in-the-wool basketball fan who sat in on it and remarked that he wasn't going to buy a season ticket. "The agony of watching that outfit play would be much too much," he explained. There was improvement, game by game. As this is written Mason City has won rank among the top four teams out of nearly BOO basketball teams in Iowa. If what has happened isn't a coaching miracle, it will do until one comes along.
