But leaders of the senate and house have accepted the challenge. Hereafter the appropriations committees and the two houses will, they say, scrupulously investigate appropriations item by item. And -they, promise, also, to investigate the sprawling war agencies which have been piling thousands upon thousands on the already overcrowded payrolls. It is to be hoped that in inviting congress to lake hold ot the situation, Mr. Roosevelt means what he says and will not use the powers of the administration to obstruct economies which he · says he welcomes. One gathers that Mr. Roosevelt doesn't intend lo help congress trim government costs. But he will help considerably it he just doesn't obstruct it. Responsibility for the reckless extravagance of the past ten years lies directly on the white house doorstep. In all that time expenses have gone steadily upward, alter the first brief flurry when in the bank-closing era, the president cut ail government costs 10 per cent. That was soon over as the "spend and spend, tax and tax, elect and elect" philosophy, so bluntly stated by Harry Hopkins, came into full flower. .And it never ceased, even when the nation went to war with all its enormous costs. But three to four billion dollars a year .can be saved if congress will earnestly attack the bureaucratic set-up, and make every bureau head justify .his payroll by his contribution to the war effort and the bed-rock necessities of government. The time is here when Washington must apply to itself the same rigid sacrifices imposed upon the ordinary citizen as a part of the all-important job of winning the war. As Herring Retires TN RELINQUISHING his seat in the upper house *· of congress, Iowa's Senator Clyde L. Herring can look back on a good voting record so far as the major questions facing the nation are concerned. Without exception he has been right on thc one most vital matter before the senate, namely, national security. He is one Iowa member of the congress who hasn't been required either to apologize or explain since Dec. 7, 1941. To the "rubber stamp" charge sometimes directed at him, it can be recalled that the lowan did not hesitate to break with thc administration when the occasion seemed to call lor it. This was notably true with respect to the so-called court- packing bill. The importance of his influence and his vote in the defeat of thai evil measure can scarcely be over-estimated. What lies ahead for the senator remains to be seen. It is doubtful whether he will seek elective office again. He may be placed in a government position calling for such a business background as he has or he may re-enter the business field on his own account. Whatever his future, fair-minded lowans will always have a sense of gratefulness that in a period when the inevitability of war should have been--but wasn'W-apparent to all, our state was represented in the senate by one possessed of a clear vision of what lay ahead. And for Senator Herring there should be a lasting satisfaction in the knowledge that to the fullest extent of thc opportunity presented to him, he helped make America strong for its present leading role in a world threatened by inhumanity and brute lorce. Newspapers which give ten times as much space to the criticism of President Roosevelt as to the criticism of Hitler just naturally invite a little suspicion from readers.

It can be said that the Rus- Father of Appeasement? *T»HE DEATH of Sir Revile Henderson, former ·*· British ambassador to Berlin, raises the question of the extent to which he was responsible for the Chamberlain policy of appeasement of Hitler. He was in Berlin in the months preceding and following the Munich crisis up until the outbreak of war between Britain and Germany. In the role which he occupied he was literally the eyes and ears of the British government. Upon his return to London he wrote a book: "Failure of a Mission." Probably the real explanation of Chamberlain's policy of appeasement is to be found in the fact that Britain was caught with its guard down. It was wholly unprepared to defend itself while sitting on the edge of a volcano. But the partition of Czechoslovakia under that appeasement policy constitutes one of history's real tragedies, and the genuine mistake of those earlier days of warfare. Hitler has made good use for the nazi regime of the munition plants built at Pilsen. In other ways he has drawn heavily upon thc Czechs, and his measures of brutality there have been rivaled only in Poland. * * * Young Man's War POR TWO YEARS the army has'been trying to train older men for active service, but it has only produced a high rate of physical breakdowns Battle experience has proved that modern' war demands younger men in every category and that men in their late 30's and 40's can't take the punishment required.

TREATMENT OF FATIGUE TT MAY BE OF interest to those who are work- ·*· ng hard in the present all-out war effort to know that fatigue, according to the famous study of Mosso. depends to a certain extent on the size Mosso also said that the effect of hard" study and hard work were similar to those of falling in . love--stimulation of the circulation ol the blood and increased perspiration. During both the period of hard study and the process of being bitten by the love bug the blood vessels contract and the blood pressure goes up; the temperature first falls, then rises: there is a common and annoying palpitation of I tne heart and some irregularity I of the heart.

A microcephalous patient, who has a brain weighing only about 600 to 900 grams on the contrary, tires very easily and wants to sleep an abnormal amount of the time Mosso thought that people who fatigued easily could not be rested by changing occupations- that a change of occupation helps fatigue only if the fatigue is strictly limited to a very small area o^ he brain He argued that people with a large brain could use a small part of it and then by centers" 2 OCCUpatlons could rest ".

Side roads, particularly between Mason City and Clear Lake, in recent years have been Jittered with garbage hauled out by persons living in one of the two cities. Police, employes of the county highway department and others involved have attempted to discourage the practice by requiring anyone caught to pick up the garbage again and haul it to a dump Most of those apprehended have admitted that they were not aware there are dumps close to either city. The public dump for Mason City is situated at the south end of Monroe avenue southwest To reach it. turn south on Monroe avenue at Sixfli street southwest and continue southward across the railroad tracks. Garbage which can be uurned also will be accepted at the city incinerator, 1100 Second street northeast. Tin cans should not be hauled there, of course; they should be cleaned and processed for the salvage drive. To^Save Gasoline along these sugges- for cutting down on gasoline consumption in these days of severe rationing; 1. Avoid racing engine, excessive choke. Racing a cold engine burns .gasoline just as though the car were speeding. Close choke as soon as engine runs evenly. Cars with automatic choke should be driven slowly until engine is warm. 2. Start, drive, stop smoothly. Before starting, be sure.the handbrake is off. Shift gears at proper time. Driving too long in low or second gear, or sudden accele/a- tion. wastes fuel. Hold a steady pace; don't be a "pedal pumper." Watch for stops; anticipate signals. _ o. Stop engine on long waifs. An idling engine may use as much as a quart of fuel in two 10-minute stops. 4. Watch tire inflation. An under-inflated tire makes it harder for thc engine to roll the car along and so wastes fuel. Carry 2 to G pounds over manufacturer's prewar pressure recommendation. 5. Keep brakes adjusted. Dragging brakes increase the engine load, requiring more gasoline. 6. Keep carburetor in order. A too rich fuel mixture wastes gas- oline. Have carburetor, fuel pump, and air cleaner checked and serviced at least twice a year. A fuej filter adds to motor efficiency. 7. Maintain proper engine heat. If the engine runs below normal heat, replace t h e 1 thermostat. A "cold" engine needs a richer mixture and more fuel is consumed. Overheating also wastes fuel. 8. Have a "hot" spark always. Gasoline does not give full power with a weak spark. Fouled or improperly adjusted spark plugs and worn distributor points are common causes of a weak spark. 9. Keep ignition timed. Check timing twice a year, or oftener i'c engine indicates the need. Incorrect timing means loss of power. 10 Avoid heavy oils. Follow car manufacturer's lubricant recommendations. Heavy oils cause extra fuel use. Lubricate every 30 to 60 days, regardless of mileage especially in winter. 11. Check valves and rings. Have valves ground and carbon removed; replace worn piston rings i a u l t y valves reduce engine efficiency. Excessive carbon causes loss of power. Worn rings allbw gasoline to escape unburncd.
