AN TURNER in his campaign speeches has taken to reading a part of one of the Globe-Gazette editorials concerning his candidacy. From the reports reaching us we have identified the article upon which he draws as one that was written immediately following his announcement. In it we conceded a large measure of courage and a complete honesty to Mr. Turner. We still do-and to many others who are in-no sense qualified to be governor. That's the part, of the editorial Mr. Turner is reading, it seems. The part in which we expressed the view that through an essential lack of what it takes to make an executive he proved the poorest governor Iowa has had in contemporary times apparently got deleted by the censors somewhere along the line. It's strangely missing from Dan's presentation. It should be said, in fairness, however, that Mr. Turner does make it known that he is not our candidate. This is mentioned after the complimentary parts of our estimate have been presented. "And I know WHY.the Globe-Gazette is against me " he adds, with a knowing smile. "But I'm not going to tell YOU-" Then he smiles again, a sort of sphynx-like smile.'Our position has been duly cloaked fSvsf with mystery. A crowd has been set wondering why .". ;1 we could possibly be against one so virtuous.

' We still believe we spoke rather plainly on the subject. We would very much rather be wrong than misunderstood on a question of this kind. Of course, it may be that Dan will develop some dark, devious motive back of our attitude toward him, something we don't even know about ourselves. Mr. ' Brookhart used to indulge in just that type of baiting. \ By the average person, however--even those who dis- ! agree with us in our conclusion--the belief that a can' didate is utterly unfit for the office he seeks would ' be accepted as a good and sufficient reason for opposing his nomination or election. We pledge Mr. Turner our fullest support in an en- I deavor to clear up this mystery element he has injected into his campaign. Note to high school graduates who think everything has been invented: Why not work on a system of economics--a prosperity--based on plenty rather than on curtailed production? The internationalists prattle about the foreign market America has lost. Why not a fleeting thought on the home market we've saved? Internationalist: One who wants to go on lending to countries which have made no attempt to pay back the money already borrowed. In an age of crop curtailment, isn't it strange there was so much rejoicing over Tuesday morning's rain? Back of nearly every power project to be developed at governmental expense is some real estate to be sold. Driving and petting are two more things that don't mix satisfactorily.

What is really needed is an equalization of taxation. Make every man, woman and child pay something toward government expense. If anyone is earning an income, they should help carry the load. To the best of our knowledge there never lias been a tax imposed on our people as a replacement for property tax. The farm and homeowners have been carrying two-thirds of the cost and the time has now arrived when something must be done if we are again to have a prosperous and contented people. If the people of the state are wise and vote for the men and "women who believe in the gross income system of taxation, every dollar of which is pledged to replace an equal number of dollars of property tax, we feel that one of the greatest obstacles toward economic recovery will have been hurdled. The exponents of the gross income system claim that one-half of 1 per cent will virtually wipe out ali property tax. One-half of 1 per cent is so insignificant that it will not work a hardship on even the lowest of wage earners. We do not feel that our government activities should be extended, neither do we believe that we need curtail the many privileges our govrnment now grants us, but we do feel that taxes should be equitably and fairly distributed among ail our people. _ Â· A D R I A N BLOCK- SMUNq INTo Â·NARRA;ANÂ£E1"-T' BAV, ABOUT 1WA-, (HE.

The subject under discussion was whether the prerequisite academic work for law schools should be increased. Or maybe the proposal was to increase the law school course from three to four years. I don't remember about that. But I do remember that the debate was spirited. On the one hand there was the contention that there are too many inadequately trained lawyers. On the other, it was argued that this extra year would discriminate against the poor boy. "I would bring it to your mind,' observed one opponent of the proposal, "that the thing you want done here would have barred two of our greatest legal minds from the practice of law. I refer to John Marshall and Abraham Lincoln. At this a venerable lawyer arose --it lingers in mind that it was a. Mr Kurd of Dubuque, then well into his eighties, although hero again I'm not sure. I only remember his comment: "As I understand it," he began, in piping voice, "neither John Marshall or Abraham Lincoln is going to be affected by this requirement.

Fully one-half of these injuries occurred in our homes. So it is of vital interest to know the chief causes of home injuries. Where do they occur? And from what causes? Falls on slippery floors or sidewalks were leading causes. Unsafe ladders u.nd stepludders resulted in death and injury, too; also objects left lying on floors and stairways: broken and loose stairs; stairs without handrails; defective electrical fixtures; gas leaks; use of explosive cleaning fluids; burns ami scalds sustained in the kitchen: scalds, burns and electric shocks in the bathroom.

He has in his proposed system another phase of a "nuisance tax" like the present 2 cent sales tax.

U- CLENDEN LIVER PROTECTS SYSTEM DEOPLE talk about being Â·Â·liverish," and that their F liver is out of order, and by this they k so appalling it a "holdup:" EXPERT TESTIMONY KANSAS CITY woman who slew another by striking her with a lantern, has been acquitted. That may be all right, the jury deciding she proved her contention of self defense. The interesting feature of the trial, however, is the claim made by the defense. It was that the woman had high blood pressure and that caused death. Only a week ago a woman who struck her mother- in-law over the head with a hammer, following an altercation over the comic section of a Sunday newspaper, was acquitted, the jury giving credence to expert testimony that the woman had a weak heart, and that caused death. The possibilities for acquittal, consequently are unlimited. All that is necessary is to hire an expert. It' is doubtful if there is a man or woman living so sound he or she has not some ailment or defect. And, of course, the expert could show, in that high-sounding, unanswerable, technical language of his, that such a defect could cause death. No matter then, whether struck by a hammer, a lantern, a. bullet or what not, the defect would be to blame and as the other was not responsible for the defect, it was naturally an accidental death. It is to such a point as that expert testimony seems degenerating. that he would, in all probability, call What a renter of a farm would say if he had to pay a gross tax on his cattle, hogs or corn--just to save his landlord some taxes on land--would not look well in print. What Mr. Knutson should do is this--to make his campaign a unanimous success--would be to excuse all renters from paying the tax. He should do like Dan Turner, let It go forth that large masses of voters will be exempted from paying taxes of any kind. There is no use going after votes unless you can offer "special inducements." Any governor candidate can do this because his taxation plans cannot be put in force until a legislature makes them into law--and by the time the average legislature gets through with a tax bill proposed by any governor--or Brookings Institute--its mama wouldn't recognize it. The railroads would be extensively benefited by such, a taxation. Big property owners like the Hubbell estate in Des Moines, profit largely. The many thousands of farms in Iowa now owned by insurance and loan companies, many of whose owners are not located in Iowa, get huge tax relief. The big service corporations, large owners of real estate, the Iowa packing plants, Quaker Oats industry, and scads of others benefit along with countless farmers who own their lands in Iowa. mean, per- Dr. dendenlnr s Â» from the intestines with the absorbed food, goes through the liver first to the amount of 700 quarts a day, and naturally if there are any poisons in this blood the liver will be affected. . One of its chief functions is to detoxicate the blood before it gets elsewhere in the body. And the liver naturally suffers from its ex posed position^ to destruction from "the action of these various poisons Thus the liver can be totally des troyed by the absorption of phos phorus, such as phosphorus match poisoning or the accidental or pur poseful (with suicidal intent) eat In liver such cell: ing of rat poison containing phosphorus, cases it is the total destruction of the which is the cause of death. Fortunately the liver is a strong and active organ and it can and does remove a large number of rnrao and ^destructive poisons from the blood thus pro tecting us constantly from their effects, without dam aee to its own cells. One poison which has ever and ever been accusec of causing liver disease is alcohol. The chronic us of alcohol is thought by most physicians to result in cirrhosis of the liver. I say "most physicians be cause recently there has arisen a school which be lieves that cirrhosis of the lover is not caused b alcohol That school had its day a few years ago but lately the opinion of nearly all widely experience doctors seems to me to be veering around again t BROKEN PROMISES N O MORE morally indefensible legislation has ever been passed by congress than the "municipal bankruptcy bill," under which cities cannot or do not want to pay interest or principal on bonded debts are privileged to resort to repudiation. The measure has passed both houses and the president's approval is expected. What an invitation this constitutes to the political spenders! Ladle out the money for everybody and every cause. Then escape the consequences by hiding behind this new federal bill. That's one possibility.^ Another is that, knowing the likelihood of repudiation, investors will steer clear of municipal securities. After all there is no essential difference between a municipal deadbeat and any other kind. Up in North Dakota legal notice has been served on the world that a debt is a promise made with fingers crossed. They call it a debt moratorium. The result is that even those who have had an, unblemished record of meeting their obligations up to now are now having to submit to the embarrassment of a C. O. D. demand on everything they buy. Congress is inviting this same classification for every municipality in America, has been driven. The entering wedge THE GROSS INCOME TAX West Union Argo Gazette: A prominent public man who so far as we know is not especially interested in any particular candidate for governor said to us the other day that the readiness with which some persons accept the gross income tax idea is due to the fact that the new state sales tax is so unanimously unpopular that folks are ready to accept anything as a substitute for relief. A former state legislator called our attention to the fact that propaganda for the gross income tax the past few years has come out of Davenport, which is about the last place in Iowa that would recommend a proposal of that sort, for Davenport is the financial capital of the state, and has as residents more than any other city those high income men who are interested in averting a net income tax. He further stated that the Farmers' union, the Farm Bureau, the State Grange and the labor unions all maintain legislative committees, and that not one of those organizations, composed wholly of the so-called common people, has accepted the gross income tax as a measure favorable to their members. The gross income tax idea has not been "sold" to the men who study these questions for the purpose of protecting the interests of farmers and^ laboring men. ONLY HOPE W. G. Williams in Garner Leader: For a good many years now candidates for governor have advocated new kinds of taxes to bring about replacement of the tax on real estate. And yet the levy doesn't seem to shrink much. A mill or two is lopped off, and then three or four more are added on. There is one thing about it, most of the gubernatorial aspirant? of the present season are committed to real estate tax reduction, which at least leaves us hopeful.--Estherville News. Only one man out of the flock of candidates for governor, as we see it, really offers any hope to the taxpayers and that man is Knutson. He has something definite to offer in his dollar turnover system of taxation. I note in Dr. J F. Montague recent interesting book called, "I Know Just th Thine for That," a discussion of the American COCK tail hour. He points out that our British cousins hav a habit of gathering socially for what they call tea and in the United States this is rapidly becoming sup planted by a regular social gathering which is know as "cocktails." Certainly there is no question tha,, th British tea is a far more salutary social event th. the American cocktail hour. , The artificial stimulation which seems to be necessary to use with our high-powered, engine-driven life, is harmful to the nervaus system and the ability to adjust oneself to wholesome living. For that reason, perhaps, we crave the relaxation of cocktails. But I wonder sometimes as I see young persons, and especially women, guzzling at this period in the day, what the harvset is going to be in the way,of cirrhotic livers 20 or 30 years from now.

She is a native lowan and daughter of a min- ster Mrs Fleetwood comes from a musical family. Her 'mother was a musician and was teaching music to this daughter when she was 4 years old. Her sister is Genevieve Wheat Baal, well known singer of Des Moines. After intensive musical study in the east she returned to Iowa, married a musician and then musical study abroad for both of them. Mr. and Mrs Fleetwood are now teaching music from the *ieet- wood Studios in Sioux City. Iowa condenses Mrs. Fleetwood's history in a nutshell, so to speak.. However along the busy musical way, there were urges to express the love for the beautiful in life and sometimes it took the form of poetry. Perhaps not m the studied sense of poetic thoughts but thoughts that would come where the heart and soul were impressed as during an ocean voyage. The wonder--the grandeur--the power and beauty of the sea in its many moods are so well expressed in one of Mrs. Fleetwood's poems, "On the Sea." She loves domesticity, her companion, books, friends, music and finds her supreme happiness in her home life and does not need the so-called night life to enhance her enjoyment. To quote Mrs. Fleetwood's philosophy of life in her own words: "There is so much of the good and the beautiful in the world. Let us live in it and for it and be a part of it, if possible. No matter what the result may be when the urge comes I shall continue to transfer my thoughts to manuscript." "To Music" was one of the winning poems in the recent poetry contest and is the fourth to appear in this series. The poem was written under the nom de plume of Olivia French. Can the wind be seen? B.
