Iowa, as Second Class Matter No man what '··'· A Wfet ARGUMENT ANSWERED A GROUP of wet lawyers, operating under the name of "Voluntary Committee of Lawyers, Inc.," went into a huddle in New York the other day and came put with a demand for "Immediate and unqualified repeal of the prohibition law, based on the findings of the Wickersham commission." It was found "(1) that the eighteenth amendment, being a police regulation, has no^ proper place in the constitution bf tho United States; (2) that It is unenforceable because.it has not the support of law abiding citizens; (3) that it does not tend to bring about temperance; (4) that it tends to increase crime and corruption; and (5) that It impairs the due administration of justice and causes disrespect for law." A reply to each of the claims could not be made within the space available here. So we'll just give our attention to the first of the Items in which there's the charge that 'the eighteenth amendment and its enforcement act have no proper place in the constitution. It's" the old stock argument, of course, that it "constitutes sumptuary legislation and you can't regulate people's habits by law." For a complete and convincing reply to this, let us turn to an article by Arthur Briggs in a recent issue of that excellent magazine bf opinion, The Forum. Referring to the.first of the lawyers' contentions, he says: "Of all the statemeriua-deiivered from the wet camp this has always caused the most poignant ache in the vicinity of my Adam's apple. Of course the Volstead act is sumptuary legislation! So is the drug act, the pure food act, housing laws, the.fed- eral meat inspection law, anti-spitting ordinances, quarantine for infectious .disease, traffic regulations dog licenses and=;;just ; about every other statute that has been fojlniljCRr.esaary to regulate the habits and restrict tne\,tru- nren^aid a, no competition i° these - -^.liberty of in- boldt," Rev. burg- '·Iving VIRGINIA COUNTY ADOPTS MANAGER PLAN LeVansr** Weekly: The first county in the United States to adopt the county manager plan by vote of the people wll! begin operations under the plan on Jan. -1, 1932. This is Arlington county, Virginia, which voted for a change in government at a recent election by two to one, and for the county manager plan in the event of a change by about 5 to 1. It is interesting, If not slgnlflcicant, that Arlington county, which is situated on the Potomac river just a few miles from the white house as well as from beautiful Mt. Vernon, the home and the tomb of George Washington, should be -the first county to return by popular vote to the type of. local government in vogue when Washington was alive. Not that they haa the manager plan then. But the principle was the -same. · In thise days, nobody dreamed of electing an important administrative official by popular vote. The design of the federal government shows that. Instead, the task was delegated to a small, group of representatives who met ,,and appointed- the official. Later, it became the fashion to elect every public official by popular vote. This worked fairly well in small pioneer communities where everybody knew everybody else. It still may work all right in a small community. But the idea was not adapted to a more complex civilization. First of all, where people don't know the candidates personally and have no time or opportunity to investigate them, they simply vote blindly or take the word of a political machine. In a New-England city for instance, a man neuned 1 Smith won staply because his opponent had a foreign name.- Second, when things go wvong, there is no way on earth of telling who is responsible. Democracy implies control of government by the public. It implies responsiveness of government to public opinion. There is only one way, by and large, to obtain this. It is to focus attention upon a small group of nien who are elected, and who are held responsible for the operation of the government--not by running it themselves, but by appointing a trained man to do so for them. The county manager plan follows the same principle. It is based on a short ballot and centralized responsibility. This is democracy--representative government, at Its best. It is to be hoped the action of Arlington county will set the pace for other progressive counties, PAMMEL REARED AT LA CROSSE La Crosse Tribune: Born on a farm in one of the coulees back of La Crosse, son of a family of pioneer settlement, Dr. Pommel was one of the first leaders in the movement for adequate appreciation of the peculiar charms of the Coulee region. He was an articulate, enthusiastic lover of the bluffs and marshes that surrounded Prairie La. Crosse long before it became the fashion to be proud of the unique charm of this locality. Perhaps.it. was.because he knew the country as few othej^md--probably as none other.

Most people only eat about 3,000 calories a day. If that is all you are consuming you would only lose a little less than a pound a day if you ate nothing at all. The explanation for this, which t g-ave last week, is that when you 3o not eat anything you are really not starving. You are living on your own tissues: The body is breaking down Its own flesh and living on that, Tnat is why you lose weight--naturally. The point is that the tissue it breaks down is fat. A.nd fat furnishes nine calories per gram and there are 466 grams in a pound (avoirdupois); 466 times chickens £ ai apartment, .dumping garbage in-the street, swimming rin a reservoir,-building a frame house in Manhattan, or keep ing: cold storage food in a New Yorlcgrocery without* sign proclaiming the fact. None of these things is a real crime, as are theft or arson. But. you con and will be arrested for doing them, and if it weren't for this sort of sumptuary regulation of personal and business habits,: life would be.."utterly impossible In communities of more than four persons. If prohibi- .tlon is to 1 be swept aside because it's sumptuary, then all this body of protective legislation is due for. the dump heap." ; ...

However, this plan was scoffed t In many quarters, and there is reason for believing that the recent action of the board in refusing to back MODERN IDOLS I DOL worship is associated by.moderns with the pagan religion aad the.superstition, of the barbarians.

BRITAIN'S LIBERAL PARTY DIES D AVID LLOYD GEORGE, evidently operating on th ancient political principle "if you can't lick 'em. join 'em," ( iaa effected a coalition between his third ·place liberal party.and the British labor party which insures--if it doesn't .break down--that the presen 'labor government wiU remain in off Ice its full five-yea term. The coalition is based on liberal, votes-for labor in return for-labor-.espousal of Lloyd George's pollcie --particularly in regard to relief ,of unemployment Unable to get into office himself, the Welshman-has arranged .that ;hl3 policies shall be tried out by Mac Doriald--undoubtedly expecting that in the event the succeed h'e will fall heir to the premiership when th time arrives to dump labor out of the saddle. Th . , strategy is similar to Lloyd George's post-war coal tibn with the Tories in the face of rising labor strength No doubt the effect .of the new deal will be to re turn Lloyd George to the reality If not to the outwar semblance of power.

There The annual meeting of the Mason City Driving club was held last evening at the office of C. B. Savage, and a large representation of the membership of this year was present. There are now over 75 members and new ones are being- added evry day to the list with the view of reaching the 100 mark. Matters pertaining to this program were arranged and other details incident to the meeting were carried out. It is the plan to moke this year's race meeting- the most successful held in years in Mason City, or in this part of the state. The following officers were re-elected: O. F. Felton, president; J. H. Greves, secretary; T. A. Potter, treasurer, and C. B. Savage, George Tiss and H. C. Stanbery, members of the board. The union plumbers of Mason City have adopted resolutions limiting their day's .labor to eight hours and exacting time and one-half for overtime and double time for Sundays and holidays. Other rules which will render the cost to employing plumbers greatly in excess of the present scale are set put in another part of this paper.

Her hardest work is in the spring and fall when people move and abandon animals. In those seasons her average haul is about 50 cats a day. only a little less rob ably- be more actual loss than that'owing to water loss, but that is the basic calculated -loss. 1 This shows-what a hard struggle It. is to lose weight. It can be done but it means effort! Now, of course, no one expects you to go without food, for any length of time. For aiy^ptirposes this Is unhealthy In spite of the' starvation cure cranks. But a diet containing- 1,200 to 1,600 calories'la not dangerous for overweights. A person weighing 130 pounds needs about 2,000 calories at moderate activity. So If you calculate you should weigh 130 pounds you can live on 1,300 .calories with safety until you get there. · SOMETHING TO KEMEMBEB HIM BY Rlngsted Dispatch: Senator and' Mrs. Brookhart eft this week on a three weeks* vacation trip to the Canal zone, Panama.

SDC WOMEN PRESIDENTS Howard County Times: Sbc women in the United States hold positions as bank presidents. One of this distinguished and exclusve group lives in Mabel, Minn.,--Betsy Tollefson, who is head of the First National bank, an institution founded by her deceased husbana' in 1893. Her son Is vice president and her grandson is cashier. Many people worry about calculating such diets. The scales are a bugaboo. The weights are all figured In grams and that is a nuisance. Let us then calculate a reducing diet for 1,300 calories together. .First apportion the calories for the meals--300 for breakfast, 600 for the midday meal, and 400 for supper. This Js on the principle that the big meal of the day. sh6uld be at noon--at the height of activity so you can .work it off by evening. The small meal at night' because while you are absorbing It you are asleep, making no effort, using up little fuel. So do not give yourself a surplus to store up. Then .apportion the food elements. We will use a high carbohydrate diet: It is more palatable, more filling,, gives a greater variety. Besides, to consume its own fat we should have a good amount of carbohydrate to balance it. Most of us consume aoout 400 grams, of carbohydrate a day: So, since we are reducing our whole diet about half, we will leave the carbohydrates at 200 grams. There are four calories per gram In carbohydrates: They contribute therefore 800 of our total 1,300 calories for the day. We should have a little over half a gram of protein per pound of body weight so for a person of 130 pounds we need 70 to;.80 grams. This yields 280 to 320 calories. With the carbohydrates this makes about 1,100 calories, leaving about 200. calories of thie remaining 1,300-to be made up from the fat. As fat yields nine calories a gram, that means about 20 to 25 grams of fat. (Always"leave yourself a little margin. Dietary calculations need not be too precise). So our diet requies 200 grams of carbohydrate, 70 to 75 grams of protein, and 20 to 25 grams of fat in round numbers. I will calculate such a diet and publish it tomorrow. .In the meantime try to figure one for yourself for comparison. left this morning 'for Cedar Falls, where she will spend her week's vacation'with her sister.

QUUJBS and old Mrs. Quibbs had been living together in that same little house on the edge of the village for as long as any one -could recall. At last Mrs. Quibbs felt she had not much longer to live. She owned the small house in which they lived, and the lot upon which it stood, and also hod a little money. One day she asked her husband whether he would .not draw up a will for her, and so at her request and on what he presumed were her instructions, old Mr. Quibbs drew up the will, giving most of the money to her niece, the remainder'to be divided among other relatives and naming himself residuary legatee and 'executor. When old Quibbs read the will to Mrs. Quibbs it was not quite as she wanted it. She wanted to leave the house to her niece, otherwise the will was all right. S othe old man agreed to change the will, but the very next day Mrs. Quibbs was taken very ill. Mr. Quibbs rushed to get the will to change it, but found she would not live long enough. So Quibbs suggested that she sign the one he had and he would see that her wishes were carried out regarding it and swore to it by raising his right hand. Mrs. Quibbs died, and not many months later the old man died. But when his will was opened it was found he made no provision for the niece. So the niece sued the executor.
