EDITORIALS We urge that a? many of our readers as can beg, borrow or even buy a copy of the February issue of Reader's Digest read the article by Robert Moses on "Consult the Average Post War Problem Postu ar World." Mr. Seen Sensibly -American About the Closes, one of the ablest men in public life in America today, presents in this article one of the most sensible and logical outlines of the once- despised "isolationist" viewpoint that we have ever read. Space does not permit reprinting the article here, but we are going to present a few scattered exerpts which indicate the general trend of Mr. Moses' views: "It is high time that architects of the new \\orkl seek the opinion of everyday American citizens, for no one who speaks without their authority will have much influence at the peace table . . . "When postwar planners say we must have an end of nationalism and think in global terms, I begin to have my doubts about them. If we win Cthis war) shall we not jealously guard the American institutions which gave us victory, and make them impregnable? . . . "The average American has no Messianic complexes. He simply doesn't believe we are anointed to do over the world in our own image, and to force our civilization on all mankind . . . "One the economic side . . . how many of our voters would open the gates to unlimited immigration of all races? . . . Does any well-informed person believe that American labor, in order to lift up the underpriviliged of other lands, will permit any substantial lowering of our own standards of living and wages or repeal our existing workmen's laws? . . . Will the average American businessman give up his advantages in home markets in the interest of better control of foreign commerce? . . . "Will our farmer give up good prices and parity with labor to bolster international agricultural theories? . . . "If, when the last gun is fired, we find ourselves with a flourishing synthetic rubber industry, dependent on oil, grains and wood for its basic alcohol, with many employes in modem plants, is there anyone so guileless as to believe we shall lightly shut down this new industry in order to rebuild that of the East Indies? "The average American soldier wants a decent job and an opportunity to get ahead when he returns. There is nothing to show that our boys are going to come storming home, as we are told by some postwar philosophers, chanting the Atlantic Charter . . . "We need not wait for the armistice to discover that the middle-of-the-road people are in the great majority. Uncle Sam is neither a skinflint nor a fool. He knows that we are not yet ready for the Parliament of Man, the Federation of the World." The bargain New York machine politician Flynn got a few months ago when his private courtyard was paved, allegedly with city blocks and city labor, turns out to have been pretty Flynn's Defeat expensive after all. It Points a Trend is probable that without this simple, easily understood symbol of political graft before them, the people of this nation would never have become stirred up enough to force blocking- of Mr. Flynn's nomination as an ambassador to Australia. Mr. Flynn says, of course, that had he not withdrawn from the battle the first of this week, he would have been confirmed as ambassador. His view is that he quit the race to avoid a unity- splitting fight in the senate. A count of senators pledged to vote against him, though, shows that his majority of four or five votes of two weeks ago had shrunk to no. better than an even NEWSPAPER! GERMAN BOMBERS GET THROUGH TO LONDON SCHOOL majority. The outcome of the affair was a sharp rebuke to President Roosevelt, and was clearly indicative of growing resentment throughout the country against control of the administration by the big-city machine politicians. More important, it proves that the president has lost his former control over the senate, where his party still has a good majority, and indicates that Mr. Roosevelt will run into real trouble if he tries to pull any monkey-shines with the house of representatives, where his party's majority is so small as to be almost worthless.

No. ',313 Q Stoakes, celebrated their jrolden Claiborne \\' Terry We may no\v have a pretty fair idea, as to the final form which will be taken by the Ruml plan for paying the income tax "as we go." Chairman Daughton of the house ways and means committee, who is powerful in taxation matters in Washington, proposed this week that taxes payable in March be levied on the 1941 rate, rather than the 1942, which would mean cutting the surtax in half. This lower tax levy would have to be paid this year, as would the new victory tax and the "pay-as-you-go" 1943 income tax. All in all, if this plan is adopted, it will mean a heavy load on taxpayers this year, but probably not beyond their capacity to pay except in cases where folks have been spending more than they should of their inflated current income. Next year, if the rate remains at the 1943 level, the pay-as-you-go plan should not be so heavy a burden; but it is a good bet that the rate will be increased to a point where 1944 taxes will equal the 1942 and 1943 taxes we pay this year.

Every society worthy of the name has originated in a desire for peace, and peace is, he said, in the words of St. Thomas Aquinas, a "tranquil living together in order." Thus, "two primary elements, then, regulate life: a living together in and a living together in There is naturally a good deal of speculation about the whereabouts of Adolph Hitler, after his failure to appear for the speech-making on the tenth anniversary of his rise to power. In fact, some are inclined to couple his absence with resumption of control of the German army by the general staff, and suggest that Der Fuehrer has been killed or imprisoned by army leaders so as to keep his famous intuition from getting the army into any worse holes than the one in which it is now struggling. Mebbe, and again, mebbe not. At any rate something of that kind is apt to happen sooner or later, and it might well be happening right now. On the other hand, it is just remotely possible that Hitler has felt the need to imitate Roosevelt and Churchill, and has flown to Shanghai for a conference with Premier Tojo. Despite all the hullabaloo about the proposed new school code, the plan has not as yet been presented to the legislature for action, and members of that body are threatening to appoint a committee to see what is the matter and to find out what became of the $15,000 they appropriated two years ago to finance a commission to draw up a new set of school laws. Principal difficulty, we surmise, is that sponsors of the new school plan realize that two major portions of their project, the pension for teachers and the "equalization fund" plan of state aid to school districts, are both 'doomed to defeat at the present economy-minded session of the legislature. They may be rewriting the rest of their report to be submitted separately, in the hope that it will be passed, as most of it should be. As we have suggested in- this column several times in past months, keep your eyes on Finland for information as to Germany's dwindling strength. If Finland becomes certain that Hitler would not be able to interfere, she will withdraw from her war with Russia. It sounded a week ago as though something of this kind were starting up there already, but a tight veil of censorship dropped almost immediately, and not a word has gotten through on the subject since then. The season of the year is approaching when our sidewalks are going to be covered with ice part of the time, no matter how hard we work keeping the snow shoveled away. Melting snow is going to run over them in the daytime, and freeze at night. Seems to us that the best we'll be able to do about it is to sprinkle ashes or sand rather liberally every time the ice forms. It makes a mess, but the first spring rains will wash it all away. social order tranquility." Order "is rather, and must be, a tendency and ever more perfect approach to an internal union. 1 [n his message, the Holy Father turned to those matters which our society has not remembered, but which we must recall if we are' io move toward unity, and riotl ioward cleavag", hatred and war. I These may be summed up: 1. God must be recognized as the "first cause and ultimate foundation of society." From Him is derived the essential dignity of the human person. 2. "The origin and primary scope of .social life is the consecration, development and perfec_ tion of the human person." 3. Social life, as God willed it, "needs a juridical order," man always retains "an inalienable right . . . to a legal order." The Holy Father singled out three errors concerning this juridical order for specific reprobation, as Father LaFargc has pointed out in -a recent issue of "Amer_ wealthy, has no inherent rights over the poor, nor the poor over the wealthy. 3. The notion of the absolute state. "There are those various j theories which, differing among themselves, and deriving from opposite ideologies" (that is, Com, munist and Fascist) "agree in considering the state, or a group which represents it, as an abso_ lute and entity, exempt from con_ trol and from criticism." To combat thsee errors, and to bring about that order leading to unity, and thus to peace in our day, the Holy Father has outlined a plan, a program of social reconstruction, which will be summar_ ized in this column next week. ground for almost 20 minutes b e - ' t h e plaintiff ·wilr.out -2 fore she was discovered and aid you have been p u j L y o f . brought to her.

Uncle Sam wants better oao. Your government is asking you to increase the production of oats, without increasing [he acreage planted. AUTHORITIES OH OATS GROWING say J things are necessary to do this job: 1. Rid your farm of all varieties sus- :cptiblc to leaf rust, stem rust, and smut. New varieties have been developed which have all the good qualities of the older strains and, in addition, are resistant to rust and smuts. 2. Plant the following new Iowa vactics: Tiima, Boont, Control or Marion. These new varieties will yield 10 to IS per cent more than the old varieties, if 1943 ii a normal year. If 1943 is a bad rust year, as it was in 1938 and 1941, these new varieties should yield at least 50 per cent more oats. 3. Make sura your seed oats are free of weed-seed and other grains. Cleaning and treating seed oats will help to increase your yield from 3 to 10 bushels to the acre. Seed can be cleaned and treated at central cleaning and treating plants throughout Iowa or at home by means of a small fanning null and home-made grain creator. Ask your county agent for details.
