S. vs. William M. Butler, et al., 297 !U. S. 1) could be improved upon: "There should be no misunderstanding as to the function of this court in such a case. It is sometimes said that the court assumes a power to overrule or control the action of the people's representatives. This is a misconception. The constitution is the supreme law of the land ordained and established by the people. All legislation must conform to the principles it lays down.;When an act of congress is appropriately challenged -in the courts as not conforming to the constitutional mandate the judicial branch of the government has only one duty,--to lay the article of the constitution which is invoked beside the statute which is challenged and to decide whether the latter squares with the former. AH, the court does, or can do, is to announce its considered judgment upon the question. The only power it has, if such it may be called, is the. power of judgment. This court neither approves nor condemns any le_gislative policy. Its delicate and difficult office is to ascertain and declare whether the legislation is in accordance with, or in contravention of, the provisions of .the constitution; and, having done that, its duty ends. "The question is not what power the federal government ought to have but what powers in fact have been given by the people. It hardly seems necessary to reiterate that ours is a dual form of government; that in every state there are two governments, the state and the United States. Each state has all governmental powers save such as the people, by their constitution, have conferred upon the United States, denied to the states, or reserved to themselves. The federal union is a government of delegated powers. It has .only such as are expressly conferred upon it and such as are reasonably to be implied from those granted. In this respect we differ radically from nations where all legislative power, without restriction or limitation, is vested in a parliament or other legislative body subject to no restrictions except the discretion of its members." Until you have identified yourself with the state safety program, through membership in a county council, you cannot say that you have done ALL in your power to reduce Iowa's futile sacrifice on the altar of recklessness. That snapping noise you hear out of the east is from the whip-cracking by democratic leaders in \Vashington, in an endeavor to keep the boys in line on the supreme court issue. · The flood was terrible--but do you realize that there are more lives lost every two days in ordinary accidents in America than were lost in the entire period of the flood? A noted biologist says the yawn is one of man's most enjoyable human reactions. Probably trying to convince himself that his audiences have been having a good time. Mayor W. S. Wilcox has performed a fine piece of service for his community and his decision not to seek re-election has occasioned widespread regret. . Iowa editors are just now waking to a full realization of the implications of She denial bill which makes advertising something iniquitous per se. The situation boils down to this: The people can't live with and government can't live without a sales tax. · DAILY SCRAP BOOK . . , . . by Scott PROS and CONS NOT ACCREDITED WITNESSES Webster City Freeman-Journal: Of course, Herbert Hoover would be opposed to the Roosevelt plan of reorganizing the federal courts, and of course, Attorney General Cummings would be for it. What either of these gentlemen may say in denunciation or in commendation of the proposal will have little weight with the people. One is prejudiced against and the other for. That is generally understood. Therefore, . their argumants lack the element of unbiased sincerity, an element which is quite necessary to convince the public of sincerity. ' ELIMINATING FIREWORKS ACCIDENTS . Waterloo Courier: More than 4,290 persons have been killed by fireworks in this country in the past 30 years. More than 96,000 have been seriously injured during the same period. These totals don't seem large, compared with a toll o£ 36,000 a. year taken by highway accidents. And yet, the fireworks toll could be eliminated. It is needless. We can't eliminate highway accidents, but we can eliminate fireworks accidents. ^Why don't we? LIFE HAS TO BE LONGER Nashua Reporter: It is claimed that the span of human life lias lengthened. Well it seems like it anyway, with all the reports now required of the average citizen--federal income, state income, social security, sales tax, and a dozen more that have been devised to furnish work for a horde of government employes, and to take up a man's leisure hours, if he has any.

CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION Choral Reading: Has Debut in North Iowa been hearing' abou g the beneficial work accom plished in E n g l a n d b choral reading. Under the direc lion of somebody skilled in the ac tivily, women read aloud in unison giving the same interpretation am inflection, as nearly as possible, a least. The pin-pose is to develop, a pleasant conversational voice. Well I was a bit surprised thi other night on a visit to North wood to i'ind that tl\e Grove town ship Farm Bureau has launchec into this very activity. One of thi most interesting items on an eve nlng's program was choral reading, directed by Mrs. H. H. Douglas of the Northwood school system. Much as the glee club or ^ conductor does it, Mrs. Douglas stood out in front of her group o a dozen farm women and led then through four or five suitable readings. One of them was Joyce Kilmer's "Trees" and there was an admirable interpretation. Mrs. Douglas, I understand, had her first contact with this projec wlile doing some educations work in Chicago last summer. The Farm Bureau has interested itself in it here in Iowa and I'm pleasec to see a North Iowa unit taking a lead.

Conscientious Objectors A PLAN placed in operation by the Massachu- ** setts Institute of Technology is attracting considerable attention from those who have interested themselves in devising a substitute for military training for conscientious objectors. Students with honest religious scruples against military drill--as distinguished from those who don't like the physical exertion demanded by military training--are excused from it. But they are required to put the same amount of time into a course on. international law, diplomacy, the causes of war and the possibilities for insuring peace. Other colleges and universities have tried to meet the .problem by making drill "optional. The result has been that not very many take the military training. At institutions where drill is required,'there is a constant quarrel about it, nurtured in many cases by outsiders of hue ranging from light pink to deep crimson. In the M. I. T. plan is a wide compromise. The young man who objects to'drill is given a chance to prove the depths of his sincerity. And perhaps the cause of peace is promoted at the same time. had a guest editorial writer in his Swea City Herald last week. The guest was a minister of the gospel and did a very good job as an editorial writer. Now when the revrent gentleman reciprocates and invites Ray to write a sermon for him, we want o be in attendance.

Good and ' . iu We sha11 now watch the 'news for the first auto accident going to his credit. Mr. Hall is also president of the Iowa Safety council. LIBERTY ISN'T THE WORD Osage Press: Even to one not much interested in the debate over changing the supreme court, the word "liberty", seems quite a bit out of place 'as used by those upholding the present court. The kind of liberty dispensed by the court is not the kind the common man has in mind. WOULDN'T* IT "BE A JOKE ' Cherokee Times: The two houses of the Iowa assembly are unable to "agree on the length of the March recess. Wouldn't it be a joke on both if this disagreement should cheat all the members out of more than three days respite from their law making duties? Fruits of Dictatorship .TN THIS country it's hard to understand how gpv- .·*· ernraents can . arise in any nation that will permit the friends of a dictator to substitute his picture for crucifixes in the class rooms of church schools. We have.been taught from childhood that people have a right to worship the Maker as their conscience may x dictate. Substitution of the picture of a politically created dictator for a Christian emblem will be considered in this country as a climax of absolutist folly. The people of the United States will not wonder | that citizens o£ Saarbrucken, Germany, are riot- .(ing because portraits of Adolf Hitler are being , placed upon the walls of their schools and crucifixes pare being torn down. ] Suppression of religious freedom under orders tof Der Fuehrer is a reflection of egotism that car- 'ries to the world a message of the tyranny under J which Germany is suffering at the present time. "| Rocks in Italy's Path JjTTALY'S colonial aspirations in Ethiopia have not j been moving smoothly of late owing to the depredations of unreconciled tribesmen under Has jDesta Demtu, Haile Selassie's son-in-law. Things Beached a climax a few days ago with a bombing attack on an Italian public demonstration in which the viceroy, Graziani, was severely wounded and ^ome Italian notables were killed,- despite the 30,000 white Italian troops In. a garrison at Addis 'Ababa. Wholesale arrests and executions followed, but Italy probably definitely ended the rebellion oy rounding up Ras Desta Demtu a few days later »y means of a flying column, and shooting him i ut of hand. It is believed this will end the revolt 1 Jmong the Amharic tribesmen of Ethiopia. The non- jimhancs, who were held as subject peoples by jhe Amhancs, the Ethiopians proper, have long 1 jince \cccepfed Kalian rule. \ ( WET NURSES FOR SUPREME JUDGES Nora Springs Advertiser: If the- president's scheme goes through for revising the United States supreme court, there will be a half dozen dignified judges provided with wet nurses for the remainder of the time they may-sit on the supreme bench. PARTISANSHIP IS TRANSCENDED Garner Leader: Not only "fault finding" republicans, but intelligent democrats as well are scorning President Roosevelt's latest thunderbolt, his attempt to get control over the third - unit of the American government, the judicial branch. OUR DIMINISHING LIBERTIES Forest City Summit: Eacli passing year sees more and more things that we are not free to do A tyrant could put a.majority of our citizens in jail or prison for present day law violations. HECTIC DAYS AHEAD Clear Lake Mirror: They are monkeying with liquor bills in the Iowa legislature that savors of hectic days m the future, if any one of the measures is legalized. ·*· what ails you and you go into a drug store and buy, we will say, a dozen capsules of it. You proceed to engulf these capsules, and take it as a matter of course that they seem to be doing the work. Let me try to indicate for you how much is behind that apparently simple purchase of yours. "ome with me to a large, modern factory manufacturing all sorts of therapeutic products. In the particular case of your dozen capsules you are using a set of medicines. And these are purchased and perhaps come from very different parts of- the world ^China, South America, California, etc. They arrive by express in the company's receiving room. Each package is immediately labeled;' opened, a sample taken out ahd'senfto the' department of analytical chemistry. Before 'the package is moved to the storeroom, the analyst's report must indicate that it is what it purports to be, is pure and fresh. From the storeroom of medicines so approved, the ingredients Clendenmf for your capsule are brought to- EARLIER DAYS IN MASON CITY Tnltl by Globe- Gazello Files carefully mixed. gether and carefully weighed and ONE THING THAT SCARES THEM Manly Signal: The girl who used to laint at the sight of a mouse now isn't frightened, at any less than a stack of dirty dishes. A REWARD OP RIGHTEOUSNESS! Thompson Courier: Please note one thing; neither Maine.nor Vermont have, been bothered with disastrous floods, or dust storms. Since the mixture goes into a capsule and capsules do not grow on trees, they have to be made. In some other part of the building the capsule manufacturing department is turning out gelatine capsules. In one such room which I visited the other day, four and a half million capsules a day are turned out by machines. The machines are composed of accurately measured dies, one the. size of the body and, one the size of the cap of a capsule. These, following along a rotating treadway, dip into a lake of liquid gelatin, move out through a drying trough, come back and are fitted together by machinery. The neatest trick of the week. In another kind of a machine the capsules are opened again, filled with the mixture of'your medicine, refitted together and collected in a container. Now, finally, each one of these capsules is inspected, carefully weighed on scales at the inspector's side, which are constantly set up with the proper weight in the other beam so as to save time; they are polished w' sterile cloths to get the dust off, bottled, labeled, and again cb.eck.ed, because on each bottle is. a serial number showing where each ingredient came from. ,This is a far cry from the old druggist who used to gather his own herbs and had no way of testing their potency, and laboriously rolled his own pills. Thirty Years Ago -J. H. McConlogue went to Garner on business today. Mrs. Frank W. Wrate has returned from a trip to Emmetsburg. Alfa Parker of Hampton is visiting in the city. Emma Quinby of Floyd is spending the day visiting friends in the city. _ .Mrs. E. A. D. Bell returned yesterday from a visit at Springdale. Officers elected by the newly organized Rockwell Farmers' Telephone company are J. H. Brown- president; D. Cahalan, vice president; W. A. Storer, secretary, and J. B. McGaheran, treasurer Major W. R. Wylie of Minneapolis was in tha city yesterday doing missionary work for his house, the Leslie Paper company, of which he is a-member. Twenty; Years Aro-; ·: J about the evolution in my comparatively brief span of those facial institutions, known as beard and mustache. They used to be symbolic of age and respec- recall the full-flowing tability. ·I well chest protectors grandfathers displayed, while in the same era out- fathers were proudly displaying a mustache of the handle-bar type. Various uncles, parsons, school teachers and others I was taught to respect carried hirsute badges of their dignity--it might be a goatee, or ambitious sideburns, or a gahvay fringe under the chin. By the time I had reached maturity, however, the cycle had run full course. Those who in my early youth had worn the curtain of masculinity were showing their age. In order, therefore,-not to be mistaken for grandpappies, tlae youth of my time took lo shaving. Many of the older generation, having spent a lifetime in cultivating and training their whiskers, could not be induced to part with them. But many others, influenced by wives and daughters who feared their own years might be gauged by Dad's g r a y i n g adornments, surrendered the mementoes of many years of care and thought, and emerged hairless and forlorn. To be smooth-shaven, you see, had become a mark of youth. He with a mustache now rated as an elder (a notion that led to tha raising of beards by many youthful medicos) and he with a beard was regarded as a relic of the Civil war. Safety razor makers reaped a harvest, and there grew up a great market in creams and lotions to soothe the scraped hides left by daily shaving. All of which, familiar to most of my readers, is intended to lead up to the observation . that the wheel has not turned full circle again, but the mustache, at least, lias returned to the favor of young dandies. Any moment I expect the beard to make its appearance around the corner, and I suppose that in my old age I shall see the scenes of my youth revived, with whiskers flaunting on every breeze. The fact is that the mustache, which only a few years ago was the mark of middle-age or senility, is now the mark of youth. We clean-shaven guys are branded as oid or aging and whiskers in various fanciful and recherche designs sprout upon the smooth faces of the young. Now what I want io know is whether we middle-aged or senilo jents will be let alone, or will we be expected to set back the clock and grow hair to get in step with the times and look youthful? I don't suppose a man's really got much to say about it. His women- folks will decide the question--the query is: How? --o-Should Amber Light Be Left On Longer? 00.

EDITOR'S MAIL BAG ASKING A PEW QUESTIONS OSAGE--As we hear so much over radio and in newspapers about the supreme court, I would like to ask a question and I hope your readers of the Globe-Gazette will give it a little consideration. Why can our justices of the supreme court decide on different law measures adopted by congress if constitutional or not by a four or five majority when in our other courts a jury of 12 must all be unanimous in deciding a trial? Also a little on the old age pension. I believe Governor Kraschel in his campaign this last election promised if he would get elected governor o£ our great state of W i'j - would B'tvc us old people a pension we could live on anyway. I wish some of our lawmakers at Des Moines would try and live on a fifteen dollar a month pension and also pay rent" out of it. Maybe then they would give us an oid age pension that would amount to something. Give us the Townsend old age pension and see how soon everybody would be prosperous and content. Yours truly, C. E.

"FLU" TITHAT DID IT was putting that devilish fever V ¥ thermometer in his mouth. If he hadn't been so weak he'd be walking around now instead of lying in his bed with cold feet and spots dancing before liis eyes and the room slowly revolving. But somebody said, "Let's see what your temperature is?" and instead of fighting off he put that glass stick under his tongue and stood there looking silly while his doom was sealed. When it came out it showed that he was two degrees below normal. . . . And the idea seems to be that if you have a temperature below normal it's even worse than a raging fever. You must go to bed right away and stay there, because if you don't you may never get well at all, and if you get up too soon you may relapse and fall in a faint on the street and be a nuisance to kindhearted strangers. So there the man is--in bed with the "flu." Having his temperature taken put him smack into bed and there he lies--drinking hot soup, drinking hot lemonade, drinking hot tomato juice, dozing off and waking up, and reading a few pages in this book and that--listening to the birds make a horrible racket, trying to puzzle out the meaning of all the household noises, sorry he'f such a nuisance furious at the inadequacy of a body that succumba to aMiny little flu germ--and his pride in his superb long-boasted "resistance" all broken down. .t_ An d his silly thoughts keep returning to the theory that his first fatal mistake was letting his temperature be taken. That weakened his body's spirit. That gave the germ confidence. That was the beginning of thq end ... If he ever gets over this--no more thermometers and no more flu!
