"Never before has our great a task of relief. On.March 1 our chapters in 850 counties in 20 states were giving food, clothing or other types'of relief to 2,000,000 persons. "It must be a source·of satisfaction to the thousands who contributed- to the-Red Cross drought relief fund to know that they have helped their fellow citizens over this calamitous; winter season. All praise to them for their generous help." Somehow there is something 'finer and nobler about the Red Cross as a human, heart-throbbing agency of charity and mercy, voluntarily poured -forth, than could be attained by an impersonal government agency for the expenditure of tax-raised funds. ; OBSERVING _ Daily, per year by carrier ---- .. ...............

First A the house voted in favor of a state income tax but refused to accept the county assessor bill. The senate, after much sparring which clearly indicated that it was not as strong for the income tax as the lower house, joined the two measures and sent them back to the house with a favorable vote. Then the house voted again on the assessor bill, killing it by decisive margin. Whether this action precludes consideration of the combined bill as it was passed by the senate is undecided as this is written. Af first, such appeared to be the case. Later, the speaker of the house hedged a bit on his rule and the tax relief prospect became still more a question mark. And there it stands. It Will be a pity indeed if bull-headedness, or prac- tical'politics, is permitted to stand in the way of constructive tax legislation. If the last election was indicative of anything, it was that lowans desire a state Income-tax. While we have felt that an emphasis far beyond the possible value of the income tax has been placed upon the matter, we have recognized the right of voters to have their wishes translated into actuality. /That is a fundamental of representative government. Students of taxation are agreed that Iowa stands m sore need of a system of assessment that will remove present inequalities. These inequalities exist 'within the individual neighborhood and they exist as between counties. There has been almost no uniformity of evaluation. It was to correct this situation that the county assessor bill was written, embodying the ideas of the tax commission. It constitutes an attempt to instill business and* science where there has been a pathetic lack of system in the past. Several opponents of the assessor bill have imputed "selfish interest" to opponents of the income tax. Perhaps that Is justified but it can be as fairly charged thaj: opEonents^oftte assessor bill, a^molfe -*ted by: iLJ selfish. lnfJ}ES'and prejudice. This opposition has the appearance of being a lineal descendant o£ the opposition once existent against letting road- building activities get out of the hands of township Q.

Later it was merged with the Courier and Inquirer. August Belmont bought it in 1862 and in 1876 sold it to a group of men headed by Thomas A. Scott when it became known simply as The Wo*rld. After Scott's death, It was acquired by Jay Gould. Joseph.,Pulitzer purchased it from Jay Gould on May 10, 1883. Q. Who were the first people to settle In the Northwest territory? E. U. A.

PHYSICIANS TREATMENTS ARE DIVERSE |ORE AND MORE the modern physician is adding -.1 diverse methods to bis stock of treatments. A hundred years ago about all a patient could expect from a doctor was drugs and bleeding. Scientific nursing was added by Florence Nightingale, surgery by anaesthesia and asepsis. Water treatment by the Austrian farmer boy, Preissnltz. The use-of diets is a modern development. As Is the use of vaccines, anti-toxins and im- munllogical substances of other kinds. Physical therapy as' it is called --the methods of electricity, lights, baths and massage---la probably the field of medicine receiving the greatest amount of attention today. Massage Is the subject of a recent authorities.- In the case of the Income tax bill drawn ^in the senate along fair and conservative lines, there is a definite mandate from the voters. In the case of the assessor bill, there is the mandate of common sense. But in the peculiar working of practical politics, it looks at this time as if both measures were to be killed. In the event of such a murder, a great many lowans--a majority, we believe--will feel that the blood is upon the hands of the lower house.

Like many other methods of treatment which have only lately been put on a scientific basis, mas- Dr. CUndeaias 1 sage was practiced many centuries ago. "The physician," said Hippocrates, in 430 B. .C., "must be experienced in many things, but assuredly in rubbing." But careful investigation of the physiology of massage is of recent date. It has been shown that massage causes definite changes in the body--there is an increased excretion of nitrogen from the breakdown of manipulated tissues, a loss of acid by way of the kidneys, and an increase of oxygen consumption. While massage does not have the.same effect as ·pHE HIGHEST hour fn human thot is that in which ·*· men stand at the opening of the Tomb of Joseph of Arimathea and realize that the ONE named Jesus, who had been crucified and laid therein, had risen and walked again among men. The full grandeur of that hour can come only to those who have made preparation for it. Whosoever has failed to prepare for the experience of this high hour has failed indeed, for the real beauty and full result of it can come only into the heart prepared for it. We are in the days of preparation for the day; when mea all over the world will stand together there again. These are the days of Lent. I do not know what they mean to you, but to me they mean days of preparation for that most Holy, Day of all the year, Easter. How far we fall short of the full significance of the fact of a resurrected Jesus because we blunr- der up to the experience which took place, "on the first day of the week, very early in the morning" without having made ready. The days of Lent are the sacrificial days' of pre- mratlon. The period of making ready, thru self-denial, :o meet Him in the garden. The days of the subjec- lon of one's animality that ones spirituality may be n the ascendancy in that Holy Hour. The time of; burning out the growth of weeds and underbrush rom our hearts which prevent a clear vision of the ilace where He HAD lain. I suggest that during these days of preparation you ind your way, on the first day of each week, up to some "House of God" and let the calming forces of lours of worship, with others, bring quiet Into your souls, for it is only the quiet soul that will hear His exercise on the body (unless accompanied by movements of the muscles), it does some of the things exercise does when employed on people who are disabled, or so infirm that they cannot take exercise voluntarily.

It may seem to some that the few hours between supper and bedtime afford small opportunity for education. But these were sufficient for Lincoln and for Franklin and for millions of men who by turning these hours to advantage thru special studies, advanced themselves above their fellows, -"Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff llfe'is-made of." Benjamin Franklin, who said this, not only understood the value of time, but he put a price on it that made others appreciate its worth. Bradstreet's in a summary of business conditions ascribes most business failures to what may be called "the size of their scrap-heaps." Nothing is more inexcusable and disastrous than waste, and the most disastrous waste of all this waste of time. The unused hours form the "scrap-heap" that has wrecked many a man's career. That heap of waste which so many young men dump at the end of every day and consider useless would, if rightly used, give priceless results in increased efficiency, higher service and better pay. Ambition, resolve, effort, purpose, persistency, confidence, courage, mental equipment and success may be manufactured out of this heap of waste time. Mil- .lions are doing it Any man can who will. Many highly educated people are inefficient,, and many efficient people are not highly educated. The world calls for educated people who are efficient and efficient people who are educated. Most of all is needed education for efficiency, for service. Real education is not do much the learning of what we do not know as the doing of what we do not now do. RED CROSS SAVES ITS HEART T HE courageous decision of John Barton Payne, chairman of the American Red Cross, has been vindicated. He refused to sanction a governmental status for bis organization by turning his back on a congressional appropriation for drought relief. The ) voluntary attribute of the Red Cross, he held, Is more ^ \ important to its perpetuation than all else, he ruled. / i - Within the past few days, the goal of $10,000,000 \i has been reached. The work of the Red Cross has '' never been cramped for lack of funds or materials, ^ ' for in addition to the monetary contributions, 621 car( loads of foodstuff and clothing have been donated. J The following statement by Mr. Payne, expressing I his thanks to the American people for their generous ·upport of the Red Cross, is a graphic picture of the situation: "This magnificent support has demonstrated again that the American people want the Red N EW YORK-, March 28.--Brother Fliteau, Eminent - Divorce Specialist, burdens the' record with the following sapient excerpt: 4 '^tnfideJlty is an aristocratic paatime, The-^or-and- the working: classes are too busy." t As Mr. Dooley once put it: "The short and simple scandals of the poor " T WO FIELD .MICE LOCK HORNS--''Red" Lewis, brushing the oyster cracker crumbs · from his lap, assumes a perpendicular position at the dinner table of his host and calls "Bull" Dreiser a.plagiarist..Later, the two illustrious adjective: slingers meet in;.an anteroom and Dreiser slaps Lewis twice on the .countenance.

In the early days of broadcasting, lowans were able to get the best of everything at all times from station WHO at Des Moines or WOW t Omaha. Now WHO and its Dav- nport conipanlon'arc tucked in be- ween two powerful stations with an nadequate wattage. WOI at Ames s off the air at night and WSUI might as well be off both day and night for all the good it does in his part of the state. In the daytime, Mason City htvs access to several clear-cut broadcasts. But at night, the situation is anything but favorable. Usually WLW, Cincinnati, is the clearest station. This should not be so. It might not be satisfactory to the commercial broadcasters, but from the standpoint of the radio fans o'f lovva, there should be two clear channels and no restrictions as to power in night broadcasting. Let one of; these be for the regular type of broadcasting and let the other be for.' th'e' educational institutions. As for day broadcasting, there should be sufficient channels to go around. The federal radio commission has jurisdiction over about 600 broad- last week. Helgason of Emmet, Bonstetter of Kossuth and Johnson of Dickinson voted for this measure. OUT OF THEIR NICHES Eagle Grovo Eagle: Hueschen is editor of a republican paper at Hol- steln, and Miles Is editor of the Le- gionaire at Des Moines.

FOR DRIVER'S LICENSE Lake Mills Graphic: A drivers' license law, wherein every driver of an automobile would be required to show some proficiency in the operation of a car, and the further stipulation that he must have liability insurance, would be just what is needed at this time.
