The treatment accorded him had won all but universal condemnation. Asked by a house committee to give his honest opinion on a question and assured that what he said would not be used against him, the distinguished military man opened his mind and heart. His forthrightness brought immediate and humiliating punishment. It was notable that the hottest criticism of the action, against General Hagood canie from southern democrats. A sample .of this occurred hi a speech on the floor of the senate by Senator Smith of South Carolina, Hagood's home state. We reproduce a few excerpts: "I don't know who caused the order to be written, but we who write the laws ought to rise up and demand restoration of this splendid officer back to his command. It is as little as we can do for this general, who'did his duty on the field of battle and the committee room of congress." * * * "This brilliant American soldier has a record .every one of us might envy. He offered his life in defense of his country. No one has ever dared to criticize his conduct as a citizen or soldier. "Yet, after all his long record of splendid service, because he saw fit in a meeting of a committee of congress to express himself, his record went for nothing. His long years of devotion to duty went for naught. "Here in the evening of his life, we see him stripped of command and sent, if this were possible to do so, in disgrace to his home." . * » » "I know discipline · to necessary, but no one here believes such a splendid record should be wrecked he- cause of an expression of opinion that everyone of us knows is the truth. "He was invited to come and tell the truth and he don't come from the breed of men that would do anything else. ... I had hoped this outrage would be appreciated in all its monstrosity and restitution made Johnson Hagood is above reproach in character, courage and in his love and devotion to America and her institutions. He is infinitely greater than some who have humiliated him." » * * The fact that President Roosevelt is the one who Jias negotiated for General Hagood's return to service carries the implication that the chief executive now sees how ill-advised he was in the drastic step taken against this honorable soldier. One hopes that the lesson ha« been impressed upon those who stand in -"neetfof such lesson. NEW CIRCUS APPEAL I TS the extreme, it seems, that makes ^business good with the curious. One of the favorite themes of a circus in past years has been, to claim the largest elephant in captivity. "Mighty mammoths of the jungles" were advertised as helping to make the "greatest show on earth." Now a large circus is publicizing a herd of "pigmy elephants." Not babies, if you please, but full grown animals up to 43 years old So, instead of' the huge lumbering monsters al which we never quite got over marveling, there will now be the midgets of the same -species. The "towering titans" will give way to "the smallest in captivity." Not all the finesse of the publicity agent is lost in the change for he informs us they are "brought direct from Africa, the first of their kind ever seen on the western hemisphere." This is the march of time. Now. instead of the huge leviathans that pushed about great trucks of carload size, aided the crews in loading and unload . ing and did other service in keeping with behemoths we will have to readjust ourselves to watching pachy denns tossing rubber balls about like the Drained seals or perhaps hopping through hoops for the clowns. Then, too, it will be a fine excuse to take the young sters to the circus again. · t · , A NAME TO REMEMBER A N extended acquanitance with John H. Pazour mayor of Marion, convinces us that he would give honest and energetic service on the state railroad commission. He has proved his trustworthiness in every position, he has held in the American Legion and in public office. Ten years of experience in railroading has given him a specific training for the position he seeks. Iowa republicans will do well to remember the name of John H. Pazour when they go to the primary polls "OB June 1. The colonel's principal indictment of the new dea ·will probably be that, at last, it separated him and three or four of his family from the public trough Voters .some day are going to have a large appre^ ciation for the political party which doesn't change its mind between overture and first curtain. A Des Moines columnist says he's glad he has only six more broadcasts. From what we hear that just about makes it unanimous. Dr. Townsend says he's tired. It would make anybody tired to stand by and see associates skimming of: the richest cream. A. look back on the public life of John Hammil convinces ua that he was a man of uncommon corn mon sense. Both poles have been discovered for some twentj years but as yet nobody has found any practical use for them. Some of these times an actress will distinguish herself by considering matrimony a sacred institution For a time it looked as if spring had missed con lections with the last train. Simile: Genuine aa a campaign promise. The PROS and CONS NOT A REPUBLICAN Algona Advance: It is not necessary to abuse Brookhart in order to back up the assertion that he s not a republican and is not entitled to run for any- :hing in a republican primary. Neither is he a demo- rat. If'anywhere on the primary ticket he belongs in the independent column. But his conception of political proprieties is not squeamish and he holds no cruples against running on any ticket that offers a nance to win. KOSSUTH PRESIDENTIAL POLL Bancroft Register: A Kossuth democratic newspa- er conducted a "straw vote'poll" last week; and re- urns tabulated this week showed that 297 republic_ votes were cast for president as opposed to 291 emocratic. The state republican ticket won by even igher odds, 310-167, and Senator Dickinson of Algona, Aom the polling newspaper has consistently opposed, one-the-less led.the republican presidential prefer- nce list. _ A CAMPAIGN FREE FROM MUD Atlantic News-Telegraph: The June primary will ecide whether Mr. Wilson or Mr. Grimes will carry the all for the republicans in the state in November. It s a fine commentary on the caliber of both candidates hat neither is indulging in any personalities in the re-primary campaign and that each has agreed to ive wholehearted support to the other in the event- e is nominated. CONSISTENT ECONOMICS Sibley Gazette-Tribune: We're of the same opin- on still--if we can afford-to expend millions of dpl- ars on paved highways, we can well afford to build ridges across streams on said highways. If that is not consistent economics, then this writer does not know the meaning of consistency. Fred Wolf to the ontrary notwithstanding. BEST DEMOCRATIC. TIMBER Marshalltown Times-Republican: Suspicion that anfc Miles, editor of the Iowa Legionaire, may de- tide to enter the senatorial contest with Hubert and Clyde/Fact is, if the democrats only realized it, Frank s the best democratic timber yet suggested for U. S. S. And would the ex-service men rally round? You ell 'em. HIS RECORD TELLS WHY Boone News-Republican: If ' Senator Borah is somewhat disconcerned to find that his candidacy for the republican nomination is not really taken serious- y, he need only look at his own record to find out why. You never could put your finger on him. AN EDITORIAL "oUTY TO PERFORM Lake Mills Graphic: There's a girl who goes by the Graphic office every day. Her face is flour white and her'lipa are bright red. Some day we're hable to jull her through the front door and wash her neck, it's terribly dirty. _ _ THE UNION LABOR VIEWPOINT Cedar Rapids Tribune: Outside of putting some color into he campaign, the belated entrance of Smith W. Brookhart as a candidate for U.'S. senator on the republican ticket will not create much of a. ripple. TURNER NEVER APPRECIATED Webster City Freeman-Journal: Governor Turner was never given the consideration to which he was entitled for his earnest and honest efforts to reduce laxation while he served as governor. BORAH'S CHANCES Cedar Falls Record: Borah ran a poor second to Roosevelt in the Wisconsin primary election, but every- Mdv knows Senator Borah's chances are limited. J . llll I P ' ROBINSON FOR STATE SENATOR Britt News Tribune: Now that Mr. Robinson is in the race, the News-Tribune hopes he may have the Seld without opposition in the primary. IF IT'S POSSIBLE Ringsted Dispatch: H. S. M. is even more of a pain in the neck over the ether waves than in his daily column.

DIABETES CAN AFFECT CHARACTER W E SPOKE yesterday of personality changes which come on so insidiously that they often go unrecognized, in the condition of diminished thyroid secretion called "myxedema." In another endocrine disease, diabetes, something like the same thing may occur. It has even been suggested that there are psychological factors which produce diabetes. For instance, that emotional stress will do so. One physician says, "Diabetes will sometimes follow intense emotional crises. It is more often the result of long continued worry." I cannot follow this line of reasoning, and would be much more inclined to believe that the symptoms of emotional stress were the first symptoms of the diabetic state and so masked it that it went unrecognized. Carefully carried out psychological studies on these patients show- EARLIER DAYS FKO.M GLOBE-GAZETTE FILES Or. Clenctemng TOWNSEND ARDOR UNCHILLED MASON CITY--Your editorial of April 7 under the caption, "Our Contemporary Topsy," was a surprising one to those of us who are really in close touch with the Townsend plan movement, for we are convinced that you would not intentionally publish only a fraction of the evidence, and that discriminating, in any given case, and so assume that you are in possession of data on only one side of the congressional investigation of the Townsend management. An investigation of the plan itself would have, been less expensive to the taxpayers, and of great educational value to all the people, had the investigators really wanted to bring it before the nation in its true light. Why so bitterly oppose as frail a thing as a "bubble?" The enemies of this plan know there is and has never been any "bubble," but rather they find in this stupendous movement of the masses a real threat to entrenched greed. As to the National Security House withdrawing their bonds from the O. A. R. P., they did. Not because they feared financial losses, but because, of probable pressure brought to bear on them by the "Liberty league" and the "Crusaders," arch enemies of any movement for the betterment of the masses. On March 13, 1936, immediately after the said withdrawal of bonds, The United States Fidelity and Guarantee company entered into commitments for two security schedules bonding all state and other officials, also all employes of the Townsend organization, one being for $175,000 and one for 575,000. You suggest something in the "setup of the Townsend organization was clearly off color," so the investigation. No "off color" has been revealed so far in the "setup," but is very evident in the so-called investigators. Into every worthwhile movement some Judases will slip in, a situation which may also exist even in the publishing fraternity. The one among the twelve did not discredit the eleven. You also state that Edward J. Margette received 51,800 to ,$2,100 monthly, but failed to state that for eight months he paid 590 a month for headquarters and offices'for the organization out of his own funds. He also donated .$3,000 worth of rugs and furniture to various Townsend clubs. The facts are Mr. Margette received no commissions and no salary, but donated 52,262 and one year's time to the organization. ' Surely those "nickel and dime" people must be as numerous as the sands of the seashore to be able to donate "nearly one million dollars" to their beloved Townsend plan in 26 months, and the movement just fairly started being indorsed by thousands of really intelligent citizens who are "disillusioned" of the hope of help from any source other than the Townsend plan, which is gaining strength daily as a result of this "investigation." Surely this unparallelled response says to the world: - "We of the 0. A. R. P. indorse and have utmost confidence in Dr. Townsend and the Townsend plan, a movement which the doctor himself could not stop now should he try. Also, the reorganization on more democratic lines has our hearty approval." The 825 members of Club No. 1, many of whom are subscribers to the Globe-Gazette, wish to thank you, Mr. Editor, for the publication of this article and many other courtesies. Very sincerely yours, MARGARET QUICK ARMSTRONG ed that they have a diminished alertness or perception. In the field of intellectuation, their memory becomes deficient; they express an inability to concentrate, have a sluggish response to questioning and other reflexes. -In the emotional field, depression is the commonest symptom, although irritability, apathy, indifference and anxiety also are often predominant. The disease itself naturally tends to fatigue, and this is often put down by less sympathetic relatives to laziness. In many mental and nervous conditions the carbohydrate metabolism may be disturbed. One laboratory reports 19 cases of melancholia in which the blood sugar was definitely raised. "The work of an impressive company of physicians warrants the conclusion that disordered sugar digestion and assimilation appear more frequently in split personalities than in normal individuals." The nervous disorders and mental depression may be a reflex of the bodily changes that are occurring and the result of the mental realization that a state of chronic invalidism occurs, but the outlook of these patients is so hopeful that one part of the treatment which should be definitely undertaken is to change the mental attitude.

Thornton was the last person to benefit from an ancient English legal right known as "Appeal of Battle." Under, which dateQ to ancient times and was rarely invoked, a man charged with murder might fight with the accuser, thereby to "establish" proof of his guilt or innocence. Thornton was suspected of having violated and killed a young girl, Mary Ashford, and in the court proceedings "in England, challenged the girl's brother to battle The brother refused the challenge, and Thornton was discharged. Soon afterward the law. which had been resorted to in the American colonies in several in stances, was struck from the statutes. ,'HEN A BIG BOSS TELLS S HOW WE MOST LIVE. was impressed by the essen- ^ tially childish and petty na^JF" ture of modern dictators hen I read of a recent action of nazi regime in Germany. An rder has been issued that the Sausfrauen," -an association of erman housewives, dissolve itself ithin ten days, after the raiding f its headquarters in Berlin. The eason given is that the housewives id not want to join the nazi women's organization. Hints of a deeper rift may be seen n the fact that the Hausfrauen con- ern themselves with modern time- .aving devices, such as electric ishwashers, ironers, and the like, hey go in for making housework asier. This, it seems, is opposed to azi principles. Their idea is that woman's place ,, in the home, and the more she lays there, the better. The less onvenient her working conditions, Jie more she has to stay home to et her work done. Truly a great rinciple for a great movement for he greater glory of greater Ger- lany! In Russia women are urged, not o say driven, to neglect their omes and go into factories. This is IB great communist ideal of wo- mn hood, just as cock-eyed as the Serman one. What a life people must live in hose dictatorship countries, where verything short of drawing breath s done by regulation, and inspec- ors are as ubiquitous as mosqui- oes! TRICK WORDS ON WAY PUT OF SPELLING BOOKS ftm*. am dead against simplified Ssifs spelling such as one finds in ^^^ its worst form in the Chica- o Tribune. But I welcome the tend- ncy on the part of authorities in he field of orthography to minimize uch words as asafoetida and phthis- s and emphasize words which are a art of normal conversation and cor- ·espondence. By eliminating the kind of trick words which used to be put in spelling, books for stumbling blocks in spelling bees, Prof. Frederick S. Breed of the University of Chicago, author of spelling books, has been ible to cut the number of words in polling texts for the first eight ears of school from 15,000 down to ,000. Professor Breed has Just completed a survey of 1,200,000 words writ- en by students of the first edght years in schools throughout the ountry. It disclosed that 13,000 dif- erent words are well enough known o the children for use in writing of compositions.

SUSPENDS ALL ARKESTS AS A SAFETY MEASURE iik have received from a friend ^ a copy of the Kansas City ' Kansan. In it is a story telling of the community's plans for a safety week observance. And that strikes me as being an excellent idea. But there's one part of it I can't quite understand. The mayor has announced that as part of the celebration, he's declaring a moratorium on traffic violations penalties. All arrests are to be suspended in connection with traffic violations "except for parking and instances where accidents occur." "I want to put the motorists and people of Kansas City, Kansas, oil their honor for just one week," Mayor McCombs said. "We'll caution them and instruct them where necessary, but otherwise will leave the problem of driving carefully up to each individual's own sense of good judgment." I confess an utter inability to fathom what was in or on the mayor's mind. What he did, it seems to me, was a bad deed for safety rather than a good one, as I view it. I've written a friend Or two to get their reaction to the course pursued. If I hear from them--or from the mayor himself -- I'll let you know. BRUNO'S LAST NOTE WAS HIS CONFESSION JKSIv am impressed by the fact aHS-p that just about every news*"*^ paper correspondent who had anything to do with the Lindbergh kidnaping case is of the opinion that Bruno Richard Hauptmann was unquestionably guilty of the crime. Many of them, I think, believed that he was unaided. Some of them are pointing to the fact that Bruno in his last written message convicted himself anew. The letter-formation and'the spelling were identical in a dozen particulars. One of the telltale bits of evidence was hia spelling of "BECAUSE." In the ransom note and in this final message professing innocence, it was "BECAUCE." Except for the fact that Governor Hoffman is still ""looking so, intently for evidence that Bruno wasn't guilty, I suspect he would see what the jury and the reporters long since Answers to Questions By FBEDEBIO J.
