France was more solidly established upon Africa; and much more compact upon that continent than the British. Its possessions there alone cover a greater area than the United States and all of its possessions. In a period of 40 years a virtually primitive country, desert-like in some regions, equatorial jungle in others, has been brought forward in rapid strides until its resources were of infinite value to the French. Hitler had a greedy eye upon colonial France at the time of his triumphant collapse of the homeland but regardless what may or may not have been the attitude of Vichy, the huge armed forces which Weygand had mobilized, in Africa and in the middle east, meant that his ambitions had to wait. In all of the tragedy of the French collapse, nothing more providential could have taken place than the failure of Hitler to gain the collaboration of the leaders of the French colonies overseas. They strung along with Vichy but they would not have any trucking with the nazi regime. Now, xvith the exception of the strip in Tunisia, for which the final battle for Africa will be fought, and Indo-China, in possession of the Japs, all of colonial France comes under the banners of the united nations. Little isolated Somaliland was the Jast in Africa to take the punch. It provides a magnificent foundation -- colonial France -- for the re-establishment of the French nation as an effective ally of the peoples resisting the axis. It will be unfortunate indeed if the relativ-ely unimportant political considerations -as between the Free Frenchmen under De Gaulle's banner and lovers of freedom now under the banner of Giraud are permitted to stand in the way of strength through unity. If a firm American hand is needed to resolve the present impasse, there should be no reluctance in applying it, either in our state department or by our military leaders on the scene of action. A 40-Hour Week View TX/fOST OF US in considering the 40 hour week i * i as it relates to the war effort have a tendency to "see red." Perhaps, therefore, we stand in need of such a dispassionate discussion of the subject as came recently from Minnesota's young governor, Harold Stassen. His address drew the following editorial comment from the Milwaukee Journal: "Governor Stassen of Minnesota seems to be that rare man in public life who puts thought into what he says. And the political motives are not sticking out like knobs on his declarations. If they are there, they are well concealed. "Governor Stassen realizes the need for a longer work week. But he would not try to get it by a 'blunt,' thoughtless repeal of the 40 hour law, thus creating more troublesome problems than are made by the law itself. He would devise a plan that would preserve the principle of the law, preserve wage scales as they are now, but would not give a premium reward lor the hours of work which must be added in the interest of victory. "Specifically, the governor would say that hours worked over 40 shall bo compensated at time and one-half to the extent -- and onlv to the extent-- that the individual received time and one-half for overtime worked in 1942 Beyond this, and up to CO hours a week, overtime should be compensated at time and one-tenth' .1. '! T A ere is fiood sense to that - The values of the 40 hour lav.--- values that will be needed again m the days of peace-- would be kept intact. The immense problems involved in any reduction of wages that came about through the repeal of the Jaw would be avoided. At the same time the extra work that will be needed in the war plants could be done without increasing the threat of inflation And the civilian industries that cannot afford to pay so much overtime would be protected It is what we would call a promising solution. '-This will not be pleasing to the reaction?hi 1 , CS f M i'? \!? b0 ^ baiters wh ° wou!d rc «sh that blunt, thoughtless' attack which Governor Stassen would avoid. W B doubt that it will be pleasing to those labor leaders who have shown no inclination to yield an inch on adjusting legislation to the war need. But it is something the nation When you wonder what 1he other driver on the icy pavement is going to do, it may console you to know that he isn't real sure himself. * * * Carping criticism of the rationing program may be a way to curry favor with the masses-but it isn't the way to help win the war. * * * If you're worried about the future course of the war, console yourself by thinking how Hitler Mussolini and Tojo must feel about it * * * Just what makes Hitler or Tojo, not to mention Balcony Benny, believe they can win this war isn't clear from this distance. * * * It will be o. k. with the average, radio listener if crooners begin now to taper off on that dream of a white Christmas. * * * "Last of the Mikados" would be a most appropriate distinguishing phrase for Hirohito. * * * It will make you proud (?) to tell your grandchildren: 'I stayed home and hoarded." * * * Even one strike in a war industry is too many. PROS and CONS Some Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchanges When Spancler Was Wrons Eagle Grove Eagle: One should not expect Mr Spangler .to be right on every issue in a political career of over 30 years. Perfection has not been attained by very many men in the history of the world. Spang" was wrong when he followed the bull moose off the reservation when the other Hoosevelt wanted a third term and aspired to' be a dictator of sorts. "Teddy" ran amuck and the country elected Woodrow Wilson. The country changed leaders in one o£ the most prosperous periods in our history. In fact, as the Eagle hns frequently pointed out, "parity for farm prod- from They're Not All in Washington Cresco Times: We read a great deal about the hordes of federal employes who are packed in the various departments in Washington. D C but fact is that is only a small part of the civilian army mobilized on the government payrolls There are six states which have more than 100 - ·1^ e £ e « al w °*ers each. New York state leads with 210,000, rivaling Washington with 233,000 Pennsylvania, California, Texas, Virginia and Massachusetts all are near the top with job holders ranging well above 100,000 each. Something Should Be Done Ames Tribune: Senator Pat MoCarran of Nevada said the other day that an "ill-advised citizen had threatened to take the solon's life because of his leadership of the silver bloc which refuses to permit the government to use silver in making weapons o£ war. Now that is a prettv serious threat, but there probably are more people willing to do the senator mayhem than he realizes. It is doubtful if any of them actually would murder him, but it wouldn't be safe to say they wouldn't give him a licking if they had a chance. Piecemeal Paying Better Cherokee Times: Much as poeple dislike taxes lTMfi°i? n i, b H n 0 l ue3tionin g the fact that they would be better off if tax payments were to be arranged on a pay-as-you-go basis rather than on the present cumulative basis under which sta»- genng amounts are required, falling due quiTe often when the taxpayer is unprepared to meet the payments.

On Jan. 1, 1943, a Suffolk county grand jury indicted a group of 11 Boston officials for criminal neglect of duty. Between these two events five weeks elapsed during which time all the good which could possibly come from the indictments or the investigation vanished. After a few days even the most appalling loss can become commonplace. That is something the law enforcement officials never take into consideration. If the Boston grancl jury had acted without delay, the lesson of the Cocoanut Grove holocaust might have cleaned up similar firetrap conditions in every city of the land. Instead, the Bostonians took their time to indict all concerned in the catastrophe, and the corrective effect has been lost. Surely, that Boston grand jury didn't have to wade through weeks of technical testimony to realize that its building commissioner inspectors, and the iiight club owners were primarily responsible for the conditions which contributed to the catastrophe, What Really Slakes Hitter !«,, Webster City Freeman-Journal: How furious it must make Adolf Hitler'to realize that fighting old General Giraud escaped from a German prison and became leader of the allied cause in North Africa, thus cementing all factions and resulting m a united front against the axis powers.

RHEUMATIC FEVER IN CHILDREN X7ESTERDAY we discussed a condition that is J- likely to be very .prevalent at this time of year--acute inflammatory rheumatism--and we pointed out that while cold and climate have a great deal to do with it, nutritional factors also play a part in its prevention. , i ^ ^ t !, me o£ year those who live in climates where this disease is likely to be more prevalent I should take special precautions [to see that the children are not exposed to cold and dampness. One eminent authority says that poverty and not dampness is the predisposing factor. One argument in favor of this view is that the incidence of acute inflammatory rheumatism i s lowest among pupils in private schools, next lowest in the'rural schools and highest in the public schools all over the country. Studies of families where acute inflammatory rheumatism has hit show that the average Dr. Clendening size family in this group consists of 7.5 persons per family. This indicates that persons in low income groups with large families have to spread the milk, butter, eggs, meat and fresh vegetables "too thin." ^yhen acute inflammatory rheumatism has hit a child, the treatment consists of rest in bed, applications to the swollen joints, and the use of the salicylic drugs, of which aspirin is the most available. , The most serious feature about the infection is that it hits the heart worse than it does the joints and joint inflammation may disappear quickly but the Ileart damage may be permanent. For this reason the experienced physician demands that a child who has had acute inflammatory rheumatism should be kept in bed for from six weeks to two months. This is by no means an easy bit of advice to .carry out, but it has been proved by careful observation that the children who have had this Jong period of restful convalescence have a very much smaller incidence of heart disease than those who are allowed to be up and about as soon as the fever has subsided. The mother and father who think it is hard on the child to stay in bed for this long a period should consider that time spent in this way may mean a saving of 20 to 30 years in the individual's life. The heart trouble does not show up immediately on the subsidence of an attack of inflammatory rheumatism. It may not appear until the afflicted individual is 30 or 40 years old. When the damage shows up at this time of life, there is no treatment which will be effective in really making a restoration of the heart to normal conditions The best that car. be done is to carry the individual along xvith heart stimulants and patch him up from time to time and perhaps prolon" his life from 10 to 15 years. This period, which is not spent in comfort, would seem to be an undue penalty to assess against a period ot six weeks to two months in bed after the acute attack. Questions and Answers D - C.--What causes a chalazion to form on the eye? If once removed, will they return? Answer--A chalazion is a cyst of one of the small meibomian glands on the eyelid. These glands secrete a greasy, lubricating substance and when the mouth of the gland is closed up, the chalazion forms. They do not necessarily return if removed, but there is no guarantee that they won't. ,, - - -- e~*"tr "··-« uu mi; praying' is it tnose who have voted for repeal and whose in- p' S j"V.' g i natU ^ is °" tl «= death certificate of every fa.al accmem caused by intoxication?

EYE® OBSERVING Not an FBI Job t venture others have won- idered why it was necessary for the FBI to step into the situation and capture tbe Touhy gang when the hideout was square- Jy in the middle of the Chicago police department's area of jurisdiction. As a matter of fact, the Chicago police were asked to keep out of the deal after the trap had been set. Belatedly the Chicago coppers began to clutter up the scenery and were asked to give the case a wide berth. For this they were duly thanked by Mr. Hoover. Almost three months elapsed between the time Touhy, Banghart, and friends shot their way out of Stateville Oct. 9 and their capture in Chicago. They were much hunted men. Undoubtedly the Chicago police had the same tips to their whereabouts as the FBI, and they did nothing,about them. - ' The Chicago police seem to be good for [directing traffic and that's about all. It wasn't an FBI job to get the Touhy mob--that really was a responsibility of Illinois and Chicago police. In the end the FBI had to do it, -V- ( A Year For Work k h o p e it will be in the : thinking of every worker in America that one day on the job is worth at least a dozen in the hospital.

J. E. (Jim) Williams would be his lifelong concern for "the underdog." , Those closest' to him will tell you that it was this anxiety--not the prospect of a fee--which so frequently brought him into court as counsel for a defendant who had been set down in popular opinion as an "enemy of, society." Better than anybody else Jim Williams realized that this was not the way to either fame or fortune. He was motivated by a sincere belief that even the most wretched wrong-doer was entitled to whatever protection the courts can afford. To him accusation and guilt were two wholly different things. Better than anybody else he knew that such a role would not invite for him the plaudits of public or of press. Many, a time he stood before a jury and quoted this Biblical admonition: "He who is without sin, Jet HIM cast the first stone." Who can say that in this philosophy he was wrong?
