-No. 3--Knox Supports Bull Mooser Roosevelt MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 29 Â· 1936 THIRTEEN LIFE STORY OF COLONEL FRANK KNOX IN SKETCH STRIPS EDITOR'S N01-E: TMs Is the first of a series of sketches of the lives of 1936 presidential possibilities. -Sketched by C. H. Crittenden, Central Press Artist- Chase Osborn, also of Saulte Ste. Marie, who had been trying for years to obtain the republican nomination for governor of Michigan, viewed with interest the fights of Prank Knox, the young publisher at the Soo. Osborn saw in Knox a powerful ally. In 1910 Knox joined forces with Osborn. A complete progressive republican ticket finally was nominated by Osborn and Knox in 1910. It triumphed at the polls. Knox, however, continued to devote his tim e to his newspaper business and to his post as chairman of the Michigan state central committee. There he was when the great storm of progressivism began brewing in the middle west, and President Taft summoned Knox to the white house to ask him to conduct the Taft campaign in Michigan. He replied that he would If Theodore Roosevelt did not run. But Knox was eager to induce Roosevelt to run. The colonel was iron in his refusal to throw his hat into the ring. Roosevelt's stand finally was broken down somewhat by Knox and others and Roosevelt sent Knox on a tour to sound out sentiment for the republican nomination. There was considerable favorable reaction. Roosevelt finally said he would run if the demand arose. Knox took T. R.'s message to the conference of progressive governors held at Chicago in 1912. The governors definitely wanted Roosevelt to run. What happened to most of the Roosevelt delegates at the 1912 convention is history. The Taft forces won. Knox was for Roosevelt to the end and the Bull Moose convention that followed saw him as chairman ol the committee on credentials.

Man's memory is not dependable, especially in the matter of weather. The present situation makes a more definite impression than one that is gone. I heard a farmer deploring the lateness of this spring and it does seem slow in arriving when one is eager to be at field work. But a diary of 1928 has these entries: April 7, "Wild, stormy day. Snow." April 13, "Six inches of snow." April 14, "One foot of snow on the level." April 15, more snow." April 18, "Rain and snow," and in sheltered places snow lasted well into May. In contrast, 1936 in northern Iowa has been a season where grain was jut in with a minimum of labor, :ew interruptions and a better coverage of seed than is usual. We are all ready for that warm, gentle rain which would make fields green in a few days. Work on cornfields is proceeding rapidly and when oak leaves are as large as squirrels' ears, there will be most of the corn planted. HE WANTS HIS BOY TO BE A FARMER. In an address at the Wisconsin College of Agriculture, Dr. O. E. Baker, United States department of agriculture economist, told why, if he could choose, he would like to see his own boy become a farmer. He gave the following- reasons: 1. The farmer has more and better food to eat than have most city people, and in times of depression he is more certain of a livelihood-if he has not mortgaged the farm. 2. The farmer has better health than city men and lives longer-SEED CORN Back Guarantee EARLY YELLOW DENT All Ear Tested and Carries a High Germination Grown in Dickinson County. Buy it--take it home and test it--and if not as guaranteed, bring it back! Don't waist your land and labor with poor seed. Farmers Elevator, lite. 500 3rd Street N. E. Phone 270 Mason City about five years longer, according to a recent study of the Metropolitan Life Insurance company. 3. The farmer accumulates more property-- becomes a wealthier man than the average city person. This may not be true in the south. It is true in the north because of the millions of city people who have almost no property at all--except an automobile. Wealth in the cities is probably four or times more concentrated than in the rural territory. 4. The farmer is more likely to enjoy his work than most city people. Most city work is monotonous --tending a machine in a factory, operating a typewriter, standing behind a counter in a retail store hour after hour - . . FARMER WILL REAR FAMILY. 5. The farmer is more likely to rear a family and do his part to promote the welfare of the natio and the race. The family is becom ing smaller and weaker in the ci ties. Only twothirds enough childre are now being born in our !arg cities to maintain their populatior permanently. The conditions of liv ing and the philosophy of life in thi cities tend toward extinction. Tin rural philosophy of life, with its rec ognition of the family as the funda mental economic as well as socia institution, tends toward survival The urban philosophy of life ephemeral; the rural philosophy of life is eternal--derived from the experience of the race down through the ages . . . Part of that, obviously, is opinion but part of it is based on carefu study of the record, and that becomes rather significant as thought is devoted to the statements made by Dr. Baker who enjoys high standing among those who have followed his work. If (3) is true, and there is statistical data to support the conclusion, then it follows that, except on the basis of political expediency, a special farm relief program can be no more justified than a special city relief program. The time is going to come when the city man will ask, why not a program of benefit payments for him! CLAKK HOUSE FOREST CITY, IOWA. E. B. PRICE Prop.
