It is easy to frown and to exclaim "That's the last straw!" -- after the fact But it cannot be forgotten that before the fact, when their secret service and diplomatic representatives must have known what was in the wind, they stood by and let it happen. The moral indignation expressed by Chamberlain and Daladier about the annexation of Czechoslovakia seems to be an expression of their peoples' wrath rather than their own. They have hurried to get to the head o£ an unexpected popular movement, It is nevertheless true that until this moment neither government could have been sure that its people were ready to face war for any interests except their own. One has only to recall the situation before Munich to perceive that plainly. France was torn with the "popular front" disorders which amounted almost to revolutionary I'isings, and Britain was seriously divided among pacifists, pro-nazis, pro-reds and imperialists. When Chamberlain came home from Munich with his umbrella and without his shirf he was wildly applauded for having prevented European war. Hitler has changed all that. He has convinced everybody in Europe that he is not seeking a fair settlement to replace the injustices oJ Versailles, but sheer German hegemony and domination. The result has been a great stepping-up of the allied armaments, and a great stiffening of popular determination. Popular criticism o£ British and French governments is now turned upon their lack of backbone, rather than upon the danger they may take their peoples into war. Obviously the other nations of Europe must slop Hitler and his axis-partner soon, or surrender any intention of ever stopping them. One or two more bloodless conquests such as that ot Czeeho-Slovakia would definitely foreclose the future against the so-called democracies. That is now too plain to be denied and the clash _ or the. collapse of the dictators -- is evidently not far away. It is still far from certain that it will be conflict, necessarily. Both 01 the totalitarian states 'have enormous domestic difficulties, both economic and in the restive temper of their peoples. It is doubtful if either could, no matter how flashy .:. their armament seems, hold out in a -long war. A ^nation -cannot wage .successful .war when it must .start with empty pockets and starvation rations. Perhaps when the pinch comes the solid advantages of the allies in all but air force-- and that a lack rapidly being remedied-- may induce the die. tators to sell out cheap for cash. \ On the other hand, as ex-President Benes points out, a dictator is like a man on a bicycle. If he stops he falls. He must keep on going. Hitler and Mussolini will find it hard to dismount, and the instant they do so their pressing domestic problems will at once demand attention and settlement. And they are not to be settled except by more oppression of their own people. The denouement may not come over Memel, which after all is a German city handed to Lithuania only by a fluke of Versailles. It might easily come if Bumama is pressed too hard to hand over her. wheat and oil to Germany, or if Mussolini decides to tell France fo "stand and deliver.'' It may come with the show of hands in the final settlement, of Ihe Spanish civil war. But filler is right in the saying attributed to him that he has but six months left. That is variously interpreted as meaning lie has a mystical premonition of his own passing, or that after six months his enemies will be too strong for further German aggressions. Certainly the show-down is ': close at hand. ' · * * At Last -- Happy Ireland! J UST about Hie only bright spot in Europe is in a direction where one would expect least to find it. Ireland is that spot-- the . little island which in the past thousand years hss experienced as much woe and travail as any like area of the earth's surface. But today conditions are such in Ireland as to warrant such a St. Patrick's day editorial as the following from "Labor," recognized publication ol the railroad brotherhoods: "St. Patrick's day this year found Ireland in a fortunate condition. It is probably the least jittery country in Europe," wrote one correspondent and Robert Brennan, Eire's minister to the United States, took occasion to make public some extremely interesting facts: "All of Ireland's bonds are selling above par Once almost exclusively a cattle-raising country^ it has increased its wheat acreage from 20,000 acres to 180,000 acres in the last 10 years. The River Shannon, famed in song and story, has been harnessed, and practically every town has elec- tricily at low rates. "Large estates are being cut up and sold lo those who cultivate the soil, and in cities slums are^being wiped out and decent homes constructed. "Once the Irish flocked to America by the lens oJ thousands. Now the tide is flowing the other way. _ Each year an average of 10,000 velum to the Little Green Isle from America, while only a few hundred seek the Land of Opportunity in the West. "This is all to the good, and demonstrates that when a nation is given an opportunity to order its own affairs, without outside interference, it is likely to do a satisfactory job.' 1 0 · 'U Fuzzy Mathematics qrVHERE are at present about 3,000,000 workers ·*· on WPA. Congress passed an appropriation of $725,000,000 for V/PA. It trimmed $150,000,000 from the president's request. Now the president says that if the $130,000,000 is not replaced, a million and a quarter WPA wkers must be discharged. The figures don't make sense. Why must more than one-third of the WPA be discharged because one-fifth has been cut from its appropriation? 11 the president's figures are accurate, the worst suspicions about the waste ia IVFA's over- costs must be true, Report has it (hat Jock Sutherland will taV:» over the coaching job for the Pittsburgh professional football team. And that won't be such a large change for him either. * * * · J £ 'i9? ne Wilh the Wind " in its nwie version jsnt all that it should be, nobody's going to observe: "Well, that's what you get from rushing, things through." o i « That story about desiring the union of all people of German blood as the justification for the Sudeten steal is now set down as ironical humor. * 0 * Watch Adolf Hitler if you want to know what ultimately happens to a man who incurs the hatred ct the entile world. * * * The new deal has found something it could view with alarm as an emergency on an average of once every six weeks since it took over in March, 1933. * « * Mr. Chamberlain has resisted the temptation to call Killer a liar. He merely cited the records lo prove it. fc SI a H we're concerned about German expansion how must the Bussians feel about it? PROS and CONS Seme Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchange* Keferenclum On War? Decorah Public Opinion: Why the opposition of the administration to the proposal of 12 senators--six democrats, three republicans, two farmer-laborites and a progressive--prohibiting the United States from engaging in war overseas without first obtaining the nation's approval by a popular referendum? » This proposal does not interfere with actual defense of the United States. It does not weaken the Monroe doctrine. President Roosevelt says that such a plan would hamper his freedom of action in foreign affairs. It hampers but one of his present powers--to bring about a situation that would force the United States into a war on foreign soil, and give him power to send our soldiers into battles overseas. Opposition to the proposal from so-called ''liberals" is simply not understandable. The Penalty of Bad Labor Leadership Algona Upper Des Moines: In Oregon, one of the first states to encourage fairer dealings, better pay, shorter hours for labor, a state law has ]ust been passed by popular referendum, regulating labor unions by government control. Although largely a state of lumbering and . manufacturing interests, bolh dependent on labor the public, employers and employes, had become sick and tired of-the abuses of-organized labor's leaders, of the hired thugs and gangsters, of the waste forced down the throats ot a helpless public. The public revolted. Oregon is but one of the 48 states. Labor has allowed poor leadership in the past few years to carry it along at a rapid pace. These same leaders may bring upon themselves the swing of the pendulum that happened in Oregon. Democrats Not In Retreat Indianoia Tribune: If. we are to believe Fortune magazine, little altenlion will be paid to the ?u s ? r ti° n '" ai cd , itorial appearing in an exchange that the new deal retreat is fast becoming a rout ln i! p A le , of f h e frantic Moris ot President Roosevelt. A few days ago Fortune magazine announced the result of a poll which showed that more than 63 per cent of the people were still for President Hoosev-elt and his policies. Fortune, it will be remembered, came as close to predicting the result of the 1936 and 1938 elections as did the Dr. George Gallup concern. The president is as popular as he ever was in spite of the frantic efforts ot his political ciitics to destroy his influence. Miller's Out in ihe Cold Cedar Rapids Gazette: Left out in the cold by both houses is Secretary of State Earl Miller. More than any other individual, Miller is responsible for the determination of both house and senate to get the highway patrol away from where it is-in his department. The legislators don't trust him due to the readiness with which he bungled into controversies and administrative difficulties soon alter his election. His name won him nomination, last June, but isn't helping him much now. Able Men Shun Public Life Northwood Anchor: The people's business the most important of all, the management of' the country, falls to those who can most impress the voters, many impressions being made by promises of near-betrayal of the ideals of America. Capable men seldom can be induced to take the annoyance and the odium which has begun to attach itself to those who campaign for office. Farm-to-Markei Roads Logan Observer: Farm-to-market roads are quite an issue before the legislature right now. All roads are farm-to-market roads, because if there were no good trunk line roads there would be little good done by having improved roads from larm to farm. The Robin S Bands Good Lakota Record: We heard the first robin this morning and that is something. After hearing nothing but the chirp of the sparrow all winter the robin sounds pretty good especially when we know that spring is just around the corner. For z Cily Manager Government Ottumwa Courier: One effective way of improving local governments is to accept the council-manager plan. Many governments today function much as they did when organized, some nearly 100 years ago. Ireland Ij Most Peaceful Spot Mankato Free Press: What makes the state of iAirope the more inexplicable is the fact that Ireland is the most peaceful spot. MAIL BAG Interesting Letters Up to 250 Words Are Welcome THE UMBRELLA AS A PROTECTOR A LGONA--Prime Minister Chamberlain and an "umbrella are now definitely associated in the public mind. The mental picture, however, does not serve as a cheerful point of departure Umbrellas were invented to furnish protection from inclement weather and do not symbolize mastery of existing conditions, though they have on Occasion been used quite effectively as weapons ot temporary defense. Louis Philippe, the citizen king of France, was noteworthy for habitually carrying an umbrella, but his exit from public life was so hurried that one is inclined to doubt the efficacy of the umbrella as a talisman. £*" V vomen 1n En g' an d who presented an um- biella decorated with a bow of ribbon to Chamberlain, must possess the traditional sense ot British humor. Chamberlain will eventually need much more than this as protection from the wrath t h a t will be his just due for the ignoble and shortsighted vole he played at the Munich conference.

ABOUT BOOKS By John Selby "MARGINAL LAND," by Horace Kramer (Lippincott: $2.50.) /"YNCE in a while a first v novel arrives which is *-' so genuine that its- honesty cancels out any fault it may have. At still rarer intervals one comes along which does not have the faults, and then this department relaxes and enjoys itself Horace Kramer's "Marginal Band" is in the latter class with perhaps one small exception which should be mentioned now and then forgotten. Especially when'he is in a hurry to start his novel, ihe author slights scenes and sequences which seem lo this reader to need fuller treatment, meaning parliciilariy the life ot young Stephen Decatur Randall with his mother, in Chicago. But from the moment young Randall arrives in South Dakota the proportions and the pace of the book slip into a natural balance which is maintained to the end. The novel is a first attempt, but the writer is a Chicago man who has been making a living with promotional matter f o r a long while, and he has a persuasive way with words. Very simply, the story of ''Marginal Land" is the story of a young man named Stephen who found himself an orphan in Chicago with no possessions except a large farm in South Dakota. This he would have at a certain age--meanwhile he works at bookkeeping and such like, and develops a "chest." When he goes to Dakota it is because he has to go. And by that time he is married. From that time forward. "Marginal Land" is two-sided. On one side of the line is a brilliantly drawn set of characters who become so familiar in the reader's mind that they have a tendency to crowd out flesh and blood people and events. On the other is a natural phenomenon: That great cycle of dry periods alternating with wet periods which plagues the marginal lands o£ the Dakotas and other states. The soil in which Stephen takes root is alternately harsh and dry, and moist enough to raise liberal crops. Little by little he reaches an adjustment with this condition and achieves a philosophy which can support him. Not everybody with whom he comes into contact can do this, and the stresses thus set up crackle and snap through much ot the book. Land of this sort breeds people lo suit it: most of these the boy from Chicago found rewarding. The author was bom in Yankton. S. Dak. which may account lor the accuracy of his local color. GOOD HEALTH By Logan Clendening, M. D. GUARD AGAINST PNEUMONIA ("PHE pneumonia commitlee ot the Health Con- J. servation association feels lhat everyone should be acquainted with the objects of treatment and nursing in pneumonia. \\ r e are near the very end of the seasonal pneumonia period now, out a high rale of incidence occurs at this time. The signals of the onset ot pneumonia should be known lo intelligent laymen, especially to housewives who control the destiny of a family. The significance of a sudden elevation of temperature, a chill, pleurisy or n blood-tinged sputum, even though they be mild, should be thoroughly appreciated. The physician should I b e informed of their occur- Jrence at once. If no medical | attention has been obtained. i(s n r,t .» - importance should be explained rr. Clendenmir anc i suc ^ attention obtained without delay. In the meantime, stricl rest in bed is essential. 1. Even one or two of these symptoms should arouse the suspicion of pneumonia and make medical attenlion imperative. 2. Pending the arrival of the physician, ccrlain of these symptoms may require palliative treatment. (a) Chill: (1) Use external heat, warm blankets, jackets, stockings, hot water bottles, etc. (2) Give warm drinks it ihere is no vomiting. (.1) Take temperature, pulse and respirations immediately following the chill and again one-half hour later. (4) At end of chill remove external applications. Change wet clothing. Give alcohol rub. (b) Some relief from pleurisy may often be obtained by having the patient lie "on the affected side, although in an occasional case the opposite position will be found more effective. This depends somewhat on whether the diaphragmatic or thoracic pleura is affected. Communicable disease technic is indicated. Isolate patient in bed and in a room by himself. It this cannot be done, arrange beds so that there is a screen between them or the head of one is opposite the foot of the other, so that coughing and droplet infection are eliminated. Thorough washing of the hands with soap and water after caring for the patient is a fundamental. Mouth hygiene is important for comfort of patient. It may also be a factor in preventing the extension of infection into adjacent organs, i. e.' sinuses, middle ear, mastoid, etc. The mouth should be cleaned as often as necessary Vo keep mucous membranes clear and moist. maintenance of proper room temporature(6S degrecs-70 degrees F.) and of humidity (40-60 per cent) is of importance not only to the patient's comfort but also to a healthy condition of the respiratory mucous membranes. Moisture may be more or less automatically regulated when plenty of fresh outdoor air is obtained. However, the roopi should not be allowed to get too cold or the patient to be exposed lo a draught. Meadow Melodies By Roy Murray of Buffalo Center GIVE ME TIME There is so much that I must do Ere 1 can end my life, So much ot service to construe Before I quit the strife. There is so much that I must see Ere 1 can close my eyes' To view no more the land and sea. The flowers, the woods, the skies. There is so much that I must say Before my lips are sealed. Just give me time, Dear Lord, I pray, Until my song's revealed. There is so much that I must know- Before my mind is dead. So much of learning as we go Along Ihe path we tread. There is so much that I must love Ere I should lose my soul. Leave me here long, till called above To wear my aureole. ..,, A CLEAN SLATE In this third month of the new year, Cerro Gordo county's record as to traffic deaths stands unmarred. Last year the death toll reached 8; the previous year it was 3 [not counting the bus crash which occurred on private property) ; in 1936 the total reached H. What will the story be for 1939? That's pretty much up to those who use the streets and highways, pedestrians and drivers. If each of us will be careful and do what we can to cause others about us to be careful, our CLEAN SLATE c a n be KEPT CLEAN. Will You Do YOUR Part? European Deadbeat suspect that nothing about . seizure of Czechoslovakia will give Adolf Hitler a greater personal pleasure than Ihe repudiation of a debt of S165.000,- 000 owing to the United States, unless perhaps it be that little nation's debts to England and France. Such was the action, of course, when Hitler took over Austria. There the amount owing America was only G2 millions. Great as the blow is to this country, it's France and England which will suffer most, with some recent advances added to those of longer standing. Soon after the Munich act. Prime Minister Chamberlain and French Foreign Minister Bonnet salved over their surrender by making emergency loans to Ihe Czechs. Loans and gifts made by Great Britain to Prague totaled 36 million pounds sterling, approximately 70 million dollars. Of this amount advanced for reconstruction and relief, 6,750.000 pounds (approximately 533,750.000) still remains in the Bank of England. OBSERVING The Paris government advanced a smaller loan to Chechoslovakia and this too has gone with the wind. The United Slates also faces th'a loss of Czecho-Slovakian trade. What can be salvaged from the reciprocal trade agreement concluded last year between the UniU ed States and Czechoslovakia is a question. Czechoslovakia was a market lor American automobiles and machinery, just as the United States was a market for cheap Czechoslovakian shoes. Czechoslovakia goods coming into the country must now be labeled "Made in Germany," which doesn't give them much chance; AH in all, the sacking of Cze-« ehoslovakia represents the liquidation ot huge loans made to this stop-gap republic by the allied powers after the World war. How great the loss will be no one knows, but America's direct financial loss will probably be a quarter billion dollars, with no hope of. consideration from Hitler. --o-Gummer Upper , have fliis humorous littla . note from a Des Moines friend who watched the recent state basketball tournament with interest: "That Mason City high' school basketball team of yours is just a gummer-upper. After losing to Charles City twice during the season they won out in the district. They beat poor little Newkirk in (he state tournament by only two points when all sentiment called for a team that had trained in a barn to win.
