They constitute already a mandate to the left parties and defeat of the ruling bloc in the chamber of deputies. There will certainly be a re-shuffle of the government, and some change in foreign policy is indicated. For one thing, the friendliness of the French toward U Duce would seem to be due for a chilling. Fascism in all its forms is anathema to the communists, and little less so to the radical socialists and the socialists who joined in the "front populaire" to win the elections. There will probably be no relaxation of the French hostility to Hitler. Hitler is even worse hated than Mussolini, and to the general antagonism against fascism is added the weight of the age-old French distrust of Germany and all her works. Domestically the election results may be ominous, in two directions. In the first place the French fascist groups, notably the Croix de Feu led by Col de la Rocque, will certainly take it badly. The fascists have been hinting at a revolution to do away with "parliamentary nonsense" for months; the thing was touch and go in the riots after the Stavisky scandal. There will be a tremendous boiling of the fascist pot after these elections are all over, as the truth is borne home to the reactionaries that the next government S3 not going to lean their way, but toward the reds. Unquestionably they will receive accessions of strength from the many dinky political groups of France on the right, the bourgeoise which hates and fears socialism in all its forms. It is not hard to imagine "the oligarchy," the great French financial and Industrial clique, taking the fascists under its wing and providing the finances which it has hitherto lacked. It may be recalled that Hitler's rise to real power suddenly began when German big business took him up ana provided the funds for his organisation. The second drastic domestic effect is likfcly to be the surrender of the gold standard. Under the influence of the Banque de France deflation has been the government policy ever since the world economic crisis arose. The franc has been repeatedly under fire, the French gold reserve-has steadily dwindled, but the banque hung on like grim death to the gold standard, 1 and had with it the support of most of the small investors of the nation. It is this group which has obviously lost the election, and the inference is plain. After years of temporizing with the issues involved, it appears that Prance has now come to grips in the conflict between business finance and socialism of the .radical persuasion. An explosion in the now familiar DAILY SCRAP BOOK by Scott Speaking of democratic confidence, take note of Mike Conway who gave up a postraastership appointment In Ms home town, Atlantic, to run again for the state railway commission. Those who doubt that the Townsend plan can be made to pay need only look at the $130,000 taken out of it by Dr. F. E. Townsend and Robert E. Clements.

Blue Eye, Mo., recently had an epidemic of pink eye, which, of course, gave the town a black eye. A- gossiper's tongue is about the only sharp instrument that doesn't become dull with use. The very mention of dead things reminds us of the league of nations. The PROS and CONS FARMERS HAVE. MONEY TO SPEND Magazine of Wall Street: So far this year the farmers of the country have taken in more money than last year because larger crops have added more to income than moderately lower prices have subtracted from it For the first two months of 1936 cash farm income slightly exceeded $1,000,000,000, a gain of about 19 per cent over the corresponding period o£ 1935. The comparison is even more favorable than the statistics imply because during the first two months of this year no AAA benefit or rental payments were disbursed, whereas such payments swelled farm income throught 1935. · If farm income continues up for the rest -of the year it will give an important lift to many lines of industry and trade, notably automobiles, farm and household, equipment and mail order sales. It is quite certain that it will continue up. One does not have to be a weather prophet to make this forecast. It would take amazingly bad weather and crops, indeed, to offset the new "soil erosion" payments from Uncle Sam--payments which will flow with increased momentum from now on--and the soldiers' bonus, approximately a quarter of which, or\some $500,000,000, will go to farmer veterans. Thus, from his own endeavors, from federal payments and from the windfall of the bonus, the farmer is quite likely to have the largest cash income in many years. THE ELDER STATESMEN Chicago Herald and Examiner: If President Roosevelt's proposal for retirement at the age of 65 should prevail, seven of the nine members of the United States supreme court as it is now constituted would be barred from further service to the nation. Perhaps Mr. Roosevelt had this thought in mind It would make him very happy, to be able to speed the retirement of a number of the able justices who have ruled adversely on various newt/deal policies. Supreme court .replacements will probably be necessary during the next presidential term. It would be possible to put younger men in the place of these elder statesmen, but the nation will doubt if Mr. Roosevelt, or any other president, could improve upon the character o£ the court.

Landon is viewed by the governor's friends as a doubtful asset was made evident in New York recently when William Allen White, famous editor of the Emporia, Kans., Gazette, was questioned about the subject The Kansan stopped talking, picked up a pen and 'jotted down the following: . "I believe that Hearst as an ally of any politician is a form of political suicide. I don't believe Landon owes a pleasant look to Hearst. Hearst is a hitchhiker on the Landon bandwagon. Sooner or later, Landon will have to throw him off or feel Hearst's ·gun in his ribs. For his .own good luck--the sooner the better." A month or two ago this writer received from the president of the Kansas Editorial association a form letter in which there was an invitation to "write us if there's anything about Alf Landon or his candidacy you'd like to know." We availed ourselves of the invitation by forwarding the query: "How come William Randolph Hearst is a principal sponsor .of the Landon candidacy?" The reply received from the'El Dorado editor was forthright enough--but not as forthright as that made by William Allen White. Perhaps it represents a difference in the two journalists, perhaps only an evolution in the Landon campaign. Maybe it is clearer now than it was two months ago that a Hearstian embrace is the kiss of the death, a "form of political suicide," as the sage of Emporia put it The burden of the previous letter was that Mr. Hearst had wandered into-the Landon camp uninvited, that there had been and would be no commitments whatever on Landon's part. It was observed further, however, that the Hearst press was a force not to be taken lightly in the molding of American opinion and that it was better to have Hearst for than against one. That view appears to be a bit more debatable at tfijg time. It isn't to be forgotten, or course, that Hearst was for Candidate Roosevelt. In fact, his record is that of having been for numerous successful candidates since he became a national figure--and a national scourge, if you ask us. But he never yet has been even mildly for the man in the white house after election. Two spirits with so much in common with respect. to this as Hearst and Senator Borah ought to be together in this campaign. Strange they're not. A possible explanation of their separation is the senator's known views with regard to individual incomes which mount into the millions of dollars annually. WHAT OUR PACIFISTS FORGET Cedar Rapids Gazette: There is no dodging the conclusion that, as the governments of some European countries are now constituted, the peace of the world hinges to a large degree on the unpredictable and uncontrolled whims of three or four men. No amount of pleading for active popular interest in the cause of peace is going to alter that fact so long as those few men are able to retain their power. That's too bad, but there's no sense in ignoring it. MITCHELL HAS GOOD BACKGROUND Marshalltown Times-Republican: Justice Mitchell comes to his candidacy with the prestige of his service as supreme court justice and with a clear record. He is certain to get a strong following not only of the present garden variety of new dealers but of the element of the party which found itself all dressed up in the old time democraticuniform with no place to go. LIGGETT KILLING FORGOTTEN Fairmont, Minn., Sentinel: How quickly the Liggett case became just another dead file in the office of the Hennepin county attorney. Gang murderers may still feel pretty safe in Minnesota, especially if they kill some one politically obnoxious to the powers which be. , EDITOR'S MAIL BAG D AS BENNETT RETIRES R. A. E. BENNETT came to Upper Iowa university when the clouds were hanging lowest and darkest He has led this fine old institution through to brighter days. Surely he" merits the gratitude of all who have come under the constructive influence of this fine old Institution. And that's just about everybody in northeastern Iowa. ABOUT THE WORLD'S LUNATIC FRINGE CLARKSVILLE--I save before me four clippings from the Mason City Globe-Gazette, culled from the Eye Observing column during the past two weeks. Some of the facts stated are truly appalling to anyone reasonably endowed with common sense or a kindly feeling or sympathy for his fellowmen and women and helpless unprotected children who are at tie mercy of the speed maniacs or reckless drivers. One item states that 2oo persons will lose their lives on the highways next Sunday and also states that one child out of every five now living is destined to meet death or serious maiming, as motorist or pedestrian. Another states that 100 have lost their lives in 110 days in the state of Iowa alone. Another tells of the reckless speeding of two youths on a Sunday noon on South Federal avenue after both boys had been warned and also called oh the carpet with an added comment that possibly warnings would be of no avail in these cases. No, of course not. Now for some remedies for these conditions. Why pussyfoot around with warnings, a slap on the wrist, a measly fine or a visit to the hospital or morgue to view the remains of some victim, said visit to do no good to the offender or the victim. Stop this informal quibbling and looking in out of the way comers for some flimsy, useless or ineffective excuse or punishment, when positive remedies are right at hand for the drunken or reckless drivers. For ordinary cases, give them a good stiff fine and make them work it out and when I say work I mean just that. Or take their license away for a year for the first offense and if another like case happens, take it way for good and all. See the effects of their recklessness, aside from crashes and injuries, when good, sane, careful drivers are forced to take to the ditch or parking to avoid these mishaps, or a locomotive engineer faces a like situation when some reckless fool drives on to the track ahead of him. What does it do to their nerves? It is a nine days' wonder that there is a sane engineer or conscientious motor driver in the country after the numerous hair raising experiences they are called upon to face at the hands of these conscienceless, inconsiderate road fiends. The splendid prayer, said to have been circulated by New York Trinity church, truly must appeal to anyone of reasonably good judgment, but to this other class would, in all probability, be utterly ignored and far less effective than a good stout club forcibly wielded until they were-beaten into insensibility. I have been so incensed when reading of these incidents that I could no longer refrain from voicing my opinions. Now I have at least had my say, even if this does go to the waste basket. INFANT MAY NEED OPERATION OURGERY, even modern surgery which is to surgery " of even a few years ago in the world history as day to night for safety and comfort, is a terrifying prospect enough to an adult, but in a child it seems doubly cruel and pathetic. No wonder parents refuse to consider, and are so frequently unable to bring themselves to consent, even to what seems an inevitable and necessary situation. It has been said that "Nature is a great physician, but a poor surgeon." Nowhere is this more applicable than in the ills of infancy and childhood. There are certain conditions, especially deformities in infants which absolutely cannot be left to time and nature, as we may wisely leave so many diseases of older people. Parents who feel that no operation should be performed on a very young child, instinctively feel, I think, that, first, it is difficult to do a thorough operation because of the small space in which the surgeon has to work, and, second, because of the com- Dr. Qendening mon belief that an anesthetic is very dangerous to young patients. But with the development of refined methods of anesthesia, and the interest so many surgeons have taken in. the special problems of infancy, with the consequent improvement of technique and recognition of the difficulties involved in childhood surgery, these objections have become largely out of date. Cases Needing Surgery. Among the conditions in which surgery is necessary in the first mouths, weeks, or even sometimes in the first days of life, are the following: · Persistent vomiting from congenital obstruction to the outlet of the stomach. This peculiar and, fortunately rare deformity, consists in a hard cartilaginous ring at the opening of the stomach where ordinarily elastic muscle should be. LitUe, if any, food can pass out of the stomach into the intestine, s o the stomach is emptied by vomiting and if let alone, exhaustion closes the scene. Operation in the first few days of life has become so relatively safe from improved and standardized methods, that the mortality has been cut down to one-third of what it was ten years ago. Cleft palate and club foot are deformities which demand surgical correction. At what age depends upon the kind of deformity and other factors, but the little patient should be under, observation by the pedi- atnciah-surgeon from the beginning, so that the favorable moment can be seized. Acute Throat Infection. Acute infections of the throat, ear, appendix and chest are always dangerous in children unless promptly treated by surgical drainage. On the contrary, hernia, circumcision and tonsils are subjects about which it j s impossible to lay down hard and fast rules. A protruding hernia of the navel can be cured by taping in about 95 per cent of cases, so surgery can stand aside and wait Other hernias are not common- in infants, and differ from adult types m that most of them close spontaneously without operation. The earlier, the better, is the time to do circumcision, if an indication is present but if the baby is jaundiced it is best to postpone it on account of the danger of hemorrhage. Tonsils, too should be removed when there is an indication, not I believe all laryngologists agree, just "on general principles. EARLIER DAYS FIJOM GJLOBE-GAZETTE FILES Thirty Years Ago-The third anniversary of the Baraca class of the Christian church was observed last night at that place with an interesting program which was in charge of the young men of the church. Prof. Douglass of Grinnell college spoke at the Congregational church yesterday. Mrs. George Hauge of Minneapolis has returned home following a visit in the city wilh her mother, Mrs. John Chilson. Postmaster 'and Mrs. L. H. Henry of Charles City are here visiting for a short time. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.--A careful investigation by authorities here shows that within the next year there will be more than $200,000,000 available for the rehabilitation of San Francisco for the destruction caused by the earthquake. DAYTON, Ohio--The. Hev. Ross Weeks said today that he believes the California earthquake is a definite indication that the end of the world is rapidly approaching. . Twenty Years Ago-DUBLIN--Martial law has been proclaimed here and troops from England have arrived and captured Liberty hall .as a result of the rebellion here. The "strike" at the cement plant was settled peacefully today when the management refused to meet th e demands for higher wages, the majority of men returning to work. Mr. and Mrs. James Elder have returned from a winter's visit in California and the south. MILWAUKEE, Wis.--Champion Freddie Welsh was badly licked by Ever Hammer, Chicago lightweight,, in a fast ten round no-decision contest. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph W. E. Deemer are visitinsr at Excelsior Springs, Mo. J. R. Hanna, former mayor of Des Moines and now a candidate for lieutenant governor visited in the city today. ' Ten Years Ago-- ANOTHER SPECIES OF INCONSIDERATE DRIVER jgMi "observe we have among u "Jsp a class of automobile driver *-*^ who are inconsiderate of th other fellow when it conies to park ing their cars in residential dis tricts," writes Assistant Observer. "This observer has at his resi dence a runway from street to °-ar age. There has been several occa sions when those making calls on neighbors have parked their cars so as to obstruct the runway making it necessary to move the car before one could leave or enter his own garage. "On one occasion an inconsiderate driver parked his car on the observer's runway while visiting in the neighborhood making it necessary to resort to several phone calls to locate the owner of the car and get him to come, unlock and move his car. "Drivers who resort to such practices certainly have little respect for trespassing on the other fellow s property. One is almost justified in shoving the offender's car into the middle of the street and leaving it there for the police to handle." --o-WOOL CLOTH SHOULD BE MENDED ON RIGHT SIDE pride myself on the range ·gf; of interests catered to in this "^ department. Here, for example, is a tip to the housewife with a wool garment to be repaired. Mend from the right side. Pick up only one thread of the cloth with the needle, thus keeping most of the darning thread on the wrong side The replacing thread should run with the thread of the cloth. Use a raveling of the goods for mending thread if possible. Press carefully on wrong side when finished. sentiment of R. H. L. of the Chicago Tribune who says ·college fraternities and sororities give "me a pain in the neck," writes D. K. But at the same time I believe that he is making a mistake in judging all college students and the result of a college education hi the actions of a distinct minority. "The frats and sororities have some fantastic, to put it lightly, ideas as R. H. L. illustrates when he tells of a Northwestern student arrested for breaking a street sign. He was competing for a prize which required not only the sign but a pickle exactly three and one-quarter inches long, a marriage license, two used airplane tickets, three hairs from a horse's tail and two large left shoes. "After that moronic illustration given by a typical college sorority, I can understand R. H. L.'s disgust. It is amazing that in our present 'enlightened' age young persons around 20 years old can stoop to such folly but that's the unfortunate part of most such groups--of being 'smart.' "But on the other hand I am quite sure R. H. L. is prejudiced when he belittles a college education for no matter what silliness is committed by a small group in school the results of the education obtained while in school and whether those results are productive after graduation is the final test. "Innumerable surveys taken of the nation's leaders in business and politics show that, while there is a minority which makes good without the advanced education it is a decided minority. Success and a college education usually come hand in hand." FREEDOM FROM DISEASE MARRIAGE PREREQUISITE. welcome the trend toward governmental insistence that those who enter wedlock shall furnish proof that they are not suffering from a disease which might mean blindness or deformity for children born to the union. Marriage on the part of persons infected with venereal disease, for example, is barred in 22 states in one or more of three ways- 1 By requiring the male applicant for a marriage license to file a medical certificate showing freedom from ie disease; 2, by requiring both ap- licants for license to file personal affidavits of freedom from such in- vestion, and, 3, by prohibiting the marriage of infected persons. Group 1 includes the following: Alabama, Connecticut, North Dako- .o, Oregon, Louisiana, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Group 2, Delaware, ndiana, Maine, Michigan, Nebras- -. ca,. New Hampshire,-Netv 'Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Okla- aoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Washington!

P. "Old New Orleans" by Stanley Arthur says: "The flat marble faced building on the right hand side of Royal street was the famous Merchants' Exchange during the golden boom days of New Orleans. Erected in 1335-36 at a cost of $100,000 from designs by Charles Bingley Dakin, the building, as it does now, fronted on both Royal street and the Ruelle or alley in the rear. This narrow thoroughfare was created in 1831 and as the exchange was planned to have two entrances, the alley was named Passage de la Bourse of Exchange Passage."

The United States claimed $19,021,428 in direct losses and many times that amount in indirect losses. The matter was arbitrated in 1871, and in the following year the Geneva Tribunal awarded the United States an indemnity of $15,500,000 in gold. This was paid by Great Britain in 1873.
