Thus will President Kallio demonstrate to the people of Finland that he believes in a real equality in democracies. , . While we would not ask our president not to occupy the white house, we do believe, that a considerable lesson can be drawn by the people of this country from the democratic attitude of the president of Finland. . For many years there has been a tendency on the part of the citizens of the United States to ap the customs of foreign monarchies in their attitude towards high public officials. We have been in clined to put our presidents on a monarchial pec estal ratner than to consider them only citizen who have been honored as tribunes for the peopl Our forefathers did not look upon their chose officials in such a manner. Washington discoun tenanted an adulation similar to that accorde foreign monarchs. We shall retain a democracy in its true sens when our social relations are based on a democrat foundation. Class distinctions are always th source of envy. The farther tHis country can avoi .them the better it will be for the people. We cannot avoid different conditions of livin bcc'ause of the diversified remuneration return that our system of society affords. We can, how ever, discard pageantry and ostentation both in ou public and, private life. Both are barriers to rea democracy. Cigarets vs. Salaries With the supreme court having to pull a load equal to that of the legislative and the executive branches, it's no more than right that an evener should be used. . Up to this time we have seen no valid argument against extending the principle of social security to Iowa's teachers underan annuity system. Huey Long's estate has been appraised--for inheritance tax purposes--at $117,000. As a practical "share, the wealther," Huey wasn't so bad. .There are features in the present situation that remind one of the closing days of the fight on the league of nations in Washington. Secretary Hull is about the only fellow we've heard of thus Jar \yho doesn't agree with New York's mayor. " Â· .'" There is--or ought to be--a , still little voice which tells us either that_it's right or it's wrong.' Simile:' As certain as the impending rise in the price of all newspaper subscriptions. War is one contest in which even the winner is DAILY SCRAP BOOK . ......... . . by Scott loser. PROS and CONS .XirHILE Chicago beams benignantly through th *Â· one hundredth anniversary of its charter, Chi cage's . policemen and school teachers are not s sure of their pay. Once more Chicago is faced will the problem of digging up the dough for teacher and public officials. Casting around for new tax worlds to conque the Chicago city council this week proceeded tc open new sources of city revenue .by imposing cit, taxes on cigarets, cosmetics, and flowers.' This' "is a new wrinkle in the taxation world. ' At present no Illinois city has the power to li- csnse for revenue although many are licensing various enterprises as a regulatory measure. If the legislature gives Chicago its way, city taxes on flowers may bloom in every city, and city taxes on cigareta will further burden, the tobacco buyer. Having seen the success of sales ta'xes on a state basis, many cities are aping the states. New Ybrk has a city sales tax, for relief and revenue. Many Illinois cities have vehicle taxes, again aping the state. Taxes' are being doubled and redoubled. If Chicago taxes cigarets, it will not be long before every city in the state will have its own city cigaret tax- In its own way, taxation is a tight little "world without end." Hugh Doesn't Quote This TJUGH JOHNSON, whose genius for saying the Â·*Â· wrong thing,at the 'wrong time and place long ago stamped him as a distinguished person, is now trying to make it appear that Woodrow Wilson was a believer in supreme court-packing as a vehicle of progressive government. It goes without saying, however, that the following, from Wilson's "Government Under the Constitution," is not among Mr. Johnson's supporting quotations: "It is within the undoubted constitutional power of congress, for example, to overwhelm the opposition of the supreme court upon any question by increasing the number of justices and refusing to confirm any appointments to the new places which do not'promise to change the opinion of .the court. . Once, at least, it was believed that a plan of this sort had been carried deliberately into effect. But we do not think of such a violation of the spirit of the constitution as possible, simply because we share and contribute to that public opinion which makes such outrages upon constitutional morality impossible by standing ready to curse them." . Beally, now, this doesn't sound like the language of one who believed in making one branch of government subservient to the other two, or, perhaps more accurately, two branches of government subservient to one. A Girl Scout Birthday TWIASON CITY this week has joined other com- *"Â· munities of the United States in celebrating the silver anniversary of the Girl Scout movement. In this brief span the Girl Scouts have gone forward at an amazing pace. There is, a good occasion for celebrating. In hundreds of communities this organization has been a moving force for good, providing wholesome, instructive companionship and training for the girls. Paralleling the purposes of the Boy Scout organization, it seeks to make better girls out of good girls, that rather than making good girls out of bad girls. It has earned the grateful appreciation of this and every other community where it operates. , And this appreciation is due not only to the Girl Scouts, whose membership and interest have helped to make the organization here so productive of good, but also to those leaders .who have given so generously of their time and means down through the years. Incidentally the time Is at hand when serious consideration should be given to the question of ;a more adequate financing of this increasingly Important program. As it grows, the Girl Scout organization is. entitled to a support comparable with that extended to the Boy Scouts. i THOSE NEWSPAPER TAYLORS Marshalltown Times-Republican: The : county press has been offering congratulation on the fiftieth wedding anniversary of the publishers of the Traer Star-Clipper. We say publishers advisedly because it has been guided and developed through the years by Elmer Taylor and that 50 year companion whose services in the publishing field have been notable as her service to her community and state have been remarkable. As to Elmer little need be said and in this matter of congrats both are to be congratulated on their able and efficient son, Harry Taylor. To use a common phrase the Taylors "are great people." As newspaper people, community and state people and home folk. Serviceable to themselves they have been highly serviceable to others. It is usually that way. Those who are serviceable in their own occupation are of the most serviceable to those about them. : Somewhat belated the T.-R. wishes to convey its high respect and liking for the Taylor's and the newspaper they have given prominence at home and nationally and to wish that the 50 year companionship may be long extended. IT WON'T BE RAY MURPHY 'Hampton Chronicle: Ray Murphy, state insurance commissioner, and former national commander of the American Legion, is being prominently mentioned for secretary of war in case President Roosevelt decides to make a change in his cabinet membership for this position. The country would welcome the change, because with a man like Ray Murphy in the cabinet it would be one more blow to the socialism now being fostered by the present administration. But Murphy will not be given the place, the president does not want his type of man. Murphy is a real American, you know, and does not sell his honor or principle for a job of any sort. He is not in favor of packing the'supreme court, Â·ather. ' tE ScrTo . MISSISSIPPI RIVER. cgjvmcHr. ivft^mTRAi PRKS ASSOCIATION tp , WE.OfE "ife. SREA-T RIVER.

WHEN DEMOCRATS WERE DEMOCRATS George F. Althouse in Ackley World Journal: 'Next time you get to-feeling a little put out over ihe democratic record of -performance, just turn your thoughts to the period from 192p to 1932 and you'll-immediately start feeling 'better."^rSioux City Tribune. '-\ Â· , ' ' 'Â·'Â·'Â· Â· - : = ' - Â· Â· Friend Kelly's'memory goes back to the days when to be a democrat, meant principle. And our children were brought up in' the faith, and every democrat had reason to feel a pride in the party's ecord and accomplishment. That is not the case under the "new deal" regime. LET'S BE FAIR WITH LEGISLATORS Winterset Madisonian: Somehow, we can't help nit say a word in defense of legislative bodies. Just low people are saying that the legislature has been n session more than a month and has only passed i few bills." The next cry will be that we are be- uddling the people and cluttering up the code with oo many laws. After all they're human and resent vholly unwarranted criticism. FLAT FEET OR FLAT HEADS? Clint Hill in Osage Press: The Literary Digest nnounces there are 16,000,000 flat feet in the Unit- d States,' and the Mason City Globe-Gazette wonders if there is any connection with the Digest poll ast year. No, not with the Digest poll, but that jgure did come out in the ejection, I remember.

Yetirx ilneertlr, AKTHUB A. PAIN AT END OP SPINE T HAVE ALWAYS thought that a dog .gets a grea * deal of satisfaction out of wagging its tail. Ther is a good deal of- exercise to be had in wagging th tail. It is also ingratiating to other animals, includ ing humans. The tail wagger gets along a good dea better in the world, and it is unfortunate that a humans we have allowed our tails to .become rudi rnentary. Of course, we have all the rudiments o a tail. It is called the coccyx, and is atteached righ ~ at the end of the spine. AH the muscles that are attached to i are now ruidirrientary, and all the muscles in that region are liable to be flabby because we have losi the habit--the very sound, healthy habit--of wagging our tails. A friend of mine -has recentl called attention to:the ills.that result .'; from; this: .';The Â· condition is called caccygodynia, 'or pain in the coccyx region. He -has found thai there is frequently a dislocation or [infection of the coccygeal joint, ..which causes spasm in the mus- . Clendening cles of that region. This occurs in the muscles of that region. This occurs most frequently in women after childbirth. The patients often beg to have the bone cut out and they feel as if this would improve the condition. In the experience of a good many cases, however, it has been found that this never does any good and, in fact, frequently makes things. worse The only treatment which has been found to be beneficial is massage. It "must be continued for some time; sometimes for several years, once or twice a month. QUESTIONS FROM READERS G. B, H.: "Please write on food for growing boys and girls. I have a son of 12 and a daughter of 10%. The boy weighs 143 pounds and the girl 106. They are nearly always hungry and rarely eat between meals. My husband does not do much physical labor and we spend a good deal of .time arguing about how much they should eat. For breakfast, fruit, cereal, toast, milk, or hot chocolate; for lunch, soup, four pieces of bread and butter, fruit, cookies or cake and milk; for dinner, salad, meat, potatoes, vegetable, dessert and milk. Do you think this is too much for a boy of his age to eat?" Answer: No. The boy's appetite is the best guide to what he needs. He is 30 years away from the curse of overeating. Â· A. R. N.: "Some"'time ago you spoke of cross- eyes being corrected by exercises and massage, or something of that sort." Answer: If taken early enough quite a proportion of cross-eyes can be restored to normal by exercises. Any oculist is familiar with the technique. It is a routine practice in oculists' offices. It must, however, be carefully controlled under, the supervision of a physician, because all cross-eyes do not respond to this treatment,- and sometimes may necessitate operation.

March 14, 1794-- Eli Whitney, aged 29, fresh from Yale, a northerner who had never seen cotton until a few weeks before he built the first cotton gin, obtained a patent on the device that revolutionized the south industrially, economically and socially. Yet Whitney did not profit a penny from it. His patient was made worthless by uncontrollable infringements after he had bankrupted himself in litigation in attempting to defend his rights. But there was some justice in this. Whitney was not the originator of the gin. The idea for it was given him by the widow of the Revolutionary General .Nathaniel Greene, who had hired him to go to Georgia as tutor to her children. March 14, 1643--The Rev.

OBSERVING Shotgun No Weapon for Firing Criticism nominate that New York clergyman's recent broadside at the Hollywood film colony as the most persuasive proof that would be offered currently that criticism is a thing which should be dealt out with a rifle rather than with a shotgun. In this statement the eastern preacher condemned en masse and without distinction the movie folk of the \yest coast community. While it is scarcely popular custom to say anything in defense of the highly publicized and frequently sensational filmland coterie it is only reasonable, 'perhaps, tp point out that the New York pastor's blunderbuss attack is subject to the same criticism as all generalized and wholesale indictments--it covers too much ground too indiscriminately. No one will deny that there are movie people tp whom his condemnation applies--just as there are lawyers, shoe salesmen, steel- makers, even clergymen to whom they might apply with equal force. But there are also movie folk, the same as there are in every other group, ,to whom the strictures are an injustice: And to attempt to condemn them all in a lump is both unfair and absurd. To brand them all because of the headline antics of the sensational fraction is not only unreasonable but bad taste. --o-Nora Springs Has Wealth of Talent sat in on an amateur vaudeville contest at Nora --- Springs Wednesday night and was amazed to discover how much remarkable talent this one North Iowa community could muster. The program contained jix acts and lasted a bit over two hours. And 'there, wasn't a single dull moment. The winner was a family group and the runner-up was a trio drawn from two rural families. A feature of the winning act was the singing of a 14 year old ad, Lorimer Olson. My qualifica- :ions for judging are admittedly a Ittle deficient but it struck me hat he has more in voice and personality than the highly touted and much exploited Bobby Breen of the movies and the radio. Loriner will go far if nature is kind to him after his change of voice. All in all it was a grand community enterprise. It brought neighbors together for a pleasant :vening. It revealed how much alent there is in a typical Iowa community. The American Legion and the Commercial club are to He complimented. People Will Eat It If They Can Pronounce It Â· J--K^ gather from the press re- Bgpp P or(s that about the most ^S?"^ important discussion at the coming convention of mid-western hotel proprietors will have to do with inventing a simple American word for "hors d'oeuvres." It is the studied conviction of those who have dipped deeply into the subject that there are "millions of persons" who would order - hors d'oeuvres" if they dared risk the waiter's lifted eyebrows at their fumbling attempts to order the dainty creation oÂ£ anchovies, cheese, caviar, et cetera--especially et cetera. "Strong men become stutterers trying to say it," the chairman stated. "Anyone who invents a simple, easily pronounced substitute will be a public benefactor i indeed." And while there on this general subject, how about making "potatoes au gratin" plain old "potatoes with cheese," "soup de jour" a simple "today's soup," and-well there are a lot of others but I don't think of them at the moment. All in all, I think we may be getting some place in this/movement toward a menu. I'll join in the spirit by changing "menu" to "bill of fare." --o-Support Tins Church In Its Good Works! Mfc. hope that the Union Mem- SgSgorial church of northeast- JS ern Mason City may have a generous response on the part of the people of this community. It's for $500 and in a very real sense the continued existence of this institution is tied up with the success of the campaign. For one tiling a pastor must have more than spiritual food on which to exist. Evron Karges of the Y. M, C. A. staff, in a recent talk, referred to the devotion and fervor tie observed at a recent meeting of the colored folk in this parish, [t was his idea, I'm sure, and I trust it's the idea of this whole community, that here is an asset which should be. preserved.
