S -5U We have suffered lightly, if we have suffered what wo should weep for.--SENECA WHERE WOULD IT END? T HAT bill offered by an Ohio congressman to have the government take over the assets of banks in the federal reserve system and reimburse depositors in full for their deposits has an attractive sound on first reading. That's true of many another proposal made to solve what has come to be regarded as an insoluble problem, taxation notably. It isn't until one dips into the subject that one discovers some of the practical difficulties. Why, for example, in the case of the McLeod bill, should depositors of banks in the federal reserve system get their money while depositors in state and private banks are left out in the cold? There was presumably a govern mental regulation of all banking. Generally speaking, of course, institutions allied with the federal reserve system were the larger banks Me. McLeod is from Cleveland, where two large banks in the federal reserve system--the Guardian Trust anc the Union Trust--were ruthlessly wrecked by thi Van Sweringen operations on borrowed money in thi buying of railroads, the construction of unneeded busi ness buildings and numerous other enterprises. It wa a lien man's game and to a considerable extent a rich man's loss. For the second time Saturday, the measure, i amended form, was reported favorable by the hous committee on banking. A veto most likely awaits it ir the event of passage, Why should the government's Santa Claus role end with banks? Why shouldn't bond holders of enterprises in default have replacements from the government? If the United States is to shoulder the burden of refunding to all who have suffered through the financial losses of speculators, all should be treated on a common ground. The largess of the United States should not be limited to the depositors in banks that were members of the federal reserve system. The government outlay for making restitutions for the banks would run, it is estimated, to at least $2,500,000,000 and perhaps into larger figures. Refunds to losers in other forms of investments would carry the figure much higher. Government printing presses and fiat money wouid be necessary to meet the de. .mands. . ^.:,. ^.^^.·^·.. M -^. v ^ k ^^^^-^;-\-.~^.-.- f '^^-: President Roosevelt' is ·tapng a firm stand the McLeod bill. He is declaring the RFC loans to banks are as far as the government can venture in the aid of releases to depositors. He is asking the RFC be more liberal in the future than it has in the past in the credit it extends to banking institutions and that it make loans wherever there is a fair prospect that the collateral offered will when liquidated meet the government indebtedness. The nation will stand behind President Roosevelt in his decision. Relief to large depositors which would Pertinent or Impertinent It was probably that word "revolution" in D. A. R .hat led Comrade Troyanovsky to think he would be welcome at the Washington reception of that organization recently attended by soviet Russia's ambassador. jT-y Rex Tugwell has been signed for the Iowa state .air next summer. Better put it on a tentative basis, le may be just another Holey by that time. Dillinger's father left $10 with the sheriff for John .0 use as spending money. A part of it apparently was used to buy him a pocket knife. If Doctor Wirt was such a notorious bore, isn't it; strange that the brain-trusters gave that party fof him? OTHER VIEWPOINTS V BOOST FOR SENATOR MURPHY Webster City Freeman-Journal: Senator Louis Murphy has made many friends and won prestige since he entered the upper house of congress to represent Iowa. He is a man of ability and courage ant usually votes right.

THE PACK STILL PURSUES A LTHO JGH beaten at every turn in the court and possessed of the utter contempt of all close enough to the situation to know the facts, the democratic administration .at Des Moines is continuing its persecution of E. W. Clark, commissioner of insurance. On the pretext of preparing for a rehearing'of the, case before the supreme court--which probably will be held merely as a matter of obstructing the commissioner in his work and inconveniencing him personally --the statehouse crowd persists in refusing to issue salary Mr. Clark. Thirty days were allowed in which to file this petition. By the end of this time, members of the supreme court will be on their summer vacation. It is doubtful if there will be any full bench hearings before next September. The Clark rehearing can scarcely be held before next November. In short, the strategy is to hold up on the Clark pay as long- as possible. There is still the hope that the commissioner can be starved into submission, a piece of strategy loathsome in the case of a private employer and even more so in a state administration.

Grapefruit? Codfish? Oxjoints? Vegetable plate? Spinach? Cauliflower? Omelette? Salad: With French dressing? Ice cream? Apple pie? Milk Meanwhile bread and butter and water have been put on your table. And sugar and salt and pepper are already here. How do you visualize these things? Arc they just so many items of food? Or do you, as I usually do, analyze them in my mind's eye and break them up into so many different chemicals? I follow their fate in the body. I gauge how many calories they have, how many miles or hours I can go on them. They are very important to you, as you must realize. They are your only source of energy, except the oxygen you breathe. They arc important both from the standpoint of youd power, but also for your health, and your pocketbook. borne which may look cheap on the bill of fare arc really very expensive--expensive because they give you so little of that energy you should have in comparison to what you pay for. Perhaps my way is not really the best or sanest. It might even be distasteful to most of you to do a mental chemical analysis of what you are going to eat. But my training has almost compelled me to it whether I will or no. I know perfectly well--in fact, I have long advocated that the most normal and healthy meals are those dictated by appetite and taste. {Instinct, shall .we say?

The arguments against the practice are numerous but most prominent among them are these: 1. The play is usually one which has been worn threadbare. ·2. The director, almost always young and inexperienced, has many superiors right here at home. 3. There is no reason for shariuji;- witii an outsider the profits derived almost entirely through the cfforta and prestige of a local organization.

Already plans are being laid to hold--and to suppress--extensive demonstrations against the Doumergue government. The left- wingers are seeking to capitalize upon the Doumergue ecoiiomy program, which hits heavily at the many government employes, by means of a general strike of civil servants. Of course the communist organizations of all sorts will join in--and of course the royalists, fascists, and other right wing groups will be out in force to attack the strike demonstrations. Doumergus received welcome support lately by the agreement of the war veterans to accept substantial pension cuts. If the veterans had deserted his program and "gone into the street"'' the first of. May. the continuation of the legime would W in serious danger. But as in the United States, the veterans are a force for conservatism.
