He delayed the sealing long enough to read it to us--and it was so pronouncedly thought-provoking that we obtained a copy which is being reproduced herewith: "I have an idea that I am going to present to 5'ou. If it is any good, I wish you would take it up with the state department; if it is not, forget it. "I believe the thing for the United States to lo in the present crisis to show our utter contempt lor tile brutality of Germany would be to join hands with England and sever ail diplomatic and business relations with that country. "My idea would be to notify them that within 30 days or 60 days, we would conduct no further business with them. Their ships would not be allowed to land on our shores and we would break away from all negotiations of every kind. "We should notify all American citizens in Germany to get out within 30 days, which they would be notified to do if a war is declared anyhow, and at the same time we should notify them that if any reprisals were taken against American citizens and property in Germany, the same reprisals would be taken in this country against German citizens and property. "I am sure there is just as much German owned property in this country as there is American owned property in Germany. I am also con^ vinced that large banks in New York, Chicago, " Philadelphia and other cities hold a lot of money deposited by Hitler and a number o£ his satellites. "I feel very sure if such a movement was made by the United States and England, it would Cnd a welcome rejoicing among all the smaller nations of Europe, such as Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Poland, Sweden, Norway and others. "I am thoroughly satisfied that such an economic boycott would compel Hitler to capitulate in short order and I do not believe it would even be necessary to put the orders into effect. I believe his goyemrnent and the German people ·would soon discover that such a proceeding would bankrupt Germany-and they would speedily bring a halt to it. "I know there are diplomatic considerations and a lot of other things to be considered and it might be that such a proceeding, as result of destroyed American property in Germany, would cost us a hundred million dollars or more. However, this amount would be much less than it would cost Us a month if we were dragged into a war to save democracy." The proposal, obviously drastic, bottoms on these two assumptions: 1. That war is inevitable for Europe. 2. That America cannot escape being . drawn into it. An economic war, costly though it be, is certainly preferable to a war which claims, lives on the field of battle. The subject is one which merits the nation's most earnest consideration. Lesson for Hollywood 'T l HE Hoosevelts know the value of advertising. "· The president and his family also appreciate that the public loves a comedy. Roosevelts also value good press agenting. The recent debate between Elliott Roosevelt, the president's son who lives in Texas, and John Boetliger, his son-in-law, who jumped from a reportership on the Chicago Tribune to the editorship of the Hearst-owned Seattle Post-Intelligencer after marrying Mrs. Anna Dal), a daughter of the president, are just now enlivening the boards with an entertaining political skit. "Sonny" Roosevelt ventured a communication to toe newspapers declaring his support of Vice President John Garner for the democratic nomination for the presidency in 1940. "Sonny-in-law" Boettiger came out with an open letter in his newspaper criticizing brother Elliott for his support of Garner. "Sonny" comes back with another open letter saying that he nor no one knows whether "daddy" will run for a third term and that as a loyal Texan and a believer in Garner's democracy he is giving his support to the vice president. All this is being first paged in the newspapers. "Sonny" and "Sonny-in-law" have the two Dromio roles. It is a "Comedy of Errors" of great value as a publicity stunt. Hollywood press agents should take notice. Members of the Roosevelt family arc excelling them in the art of obtaining press space. V * * Liquor-by-the-Drink A CAPITAL city friend who has insisted, agree** ably we should in fairness add, that this newspaper is wrong in its objections to the liquor-by- the-drink prcposa]--or anything else that would tend to make intoxicants cheaper or easier to get --passed along the following letter written tor the press by the Rev. R. M. Powell, 1116 Second Street place, ties Moines; "Legal liquor by the drink, with sanitary places licensed, would beat what we have now They can't kid us that we haven't got liquor by the drink now. We have plenty o£ it and how? In unsanitary places with no board of health supervision, We need a temperance educational campaign. I appeal to the law-makers from the rural districts to help us in our cities and towns to clean up this mess by making some common sense ]aws." It would be surprising to us i£ the writer of this letter could command any sizable following among pastors of the slate and there are many evidences o£ preponderant sentiment against liquor-by-the-drink among Iowa laymen. But there cart be no fair objection to debating a debatable question. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MONDAY, APRIL 3, 1939 Foreign Affairs By Mark Byers British Are Jolted Out of Complacence H ERR HITLER'S apparent determination to finish up his program of German expansion as quickly as possible, before the French and British cari get into position to stop him, seems to have jolted the British cabinet out of its complacence. At any rate, as one of Germany's familial- press campigns began against Poland, and German troops began to move into position along the Polish corridor, the British suddenly dropped talk for action. Instead of fumbling about with a vague "stop Hitler'' bloc which was to bring economic pressure to bear, it appears that a definite commitment was made to send military and naval aid to Poland if she is attacked by her hostile neighbor. Inasmuch as Germany has already | unofficially re-opened the corridor issue, which she had agreed lo shelve for 10 years, and has started to complain of i oppression of Germans in Poland MARK BYEKS --the customary technic of propaganda preceding recent German advances--the British hand was apparently forced. Poland, with th« courage of desperation, has been playing a brave game. Having seen what happened to the Czechs when they relied on French and British guarantees, and what became of Austria and Hungary, not to mention Rumania, in trying to make terms with Hitler, the Poles seem to have rejected from tile start any compromise. They defied Berlin and called upon the French and British, angling for Polish membership in the "stop Hitler" bloc, to back up their words with concrete promise of military aid. And they've got it, apparently. * * * Polish Position Strategic TT NO\V remains to be seen whether Hitler will ·*· exercise caution, or will fling his armies into the face of Europe and precipitate the longawaited war. There can be hardly any doubt that if Germany had continued to move eastward into the Balkans, France and England would have done little more than issue protests and attempt by economic pressure to kaep Rumania, Jugoslavia and Bulgaria from falling completely into the German orbit. But Poland lies in western Europe, and is a necessity to any combination against Germany. Her sizable and well-equipped army is definitely valuable insurance against a German mass attack in the west. If Poland were over-run or tied into the German orbit. Hitler would be free to turn his full power against France and England. The Poles played their strategic position to the limit. The resultant situation seems to be bringing Europe into a phase not unlike that of the first years of the nineteenth century, when an armed and militant combination was set up to "stop Napoleon," who had been seizing territory all over Europe for the French empire. The scale is larger, the action faster, the weapons are much more destructive--but the general picture is the same. Eventually Napoleon was destroyed--or destroyed himself--because he was not permitted to settle down and consolidate his victories. And there can be little doubt of the outcome if the dismal story is to be repeated. England and France, with Poland, Bumania and Jugoslavia--not to mention Russia--far outweigh Germany in ma« power and in resources. In a long war they seem almost certain to triumph. But they would have to face terrific punishment from the German air- force in the early months and years. DAILY SCRAP BOOK By Scott EKE ·4U.H. "EMPEROR JAPAM/ DlRECrT? II Duce Gets Little W ITH Poland forcing the British to take a firm stand, interest turns to the negotiations with Germany's partner in the "axis," with il duce sparring with Premier Daladier for the price o£ his desertion of Hitler. That is probably what it amounts to, for there has been no love lost between Berlin and Home since Hitler's legions seized Austria and moved up to the Brenner pass. So far Mussolini's only benefit from the axis has been the doubtful conquest of Ethiopia, which Germany helped only by refusing to join the attempted league boycott. But meanwhile Germany has helped herself, with il duce's aid, to large slices of the best part of Europe. And Hitler doesn't seem anxious to help Mussolini now, in his demands upon France. There has been no German pressure on Paris to help along a squeeze. The nazis have seemed indifferent, in contrast to Mussolini's activity in Spain and his timely quarrel with France when Germany began her rearmament arid turned her eyes toward Austria. So Mussolini, his European position relatively weakened by Hitler's rise, and his strength weakened by the Spanish adventure and economic distress at home and in Ethiopia, is bargaining with France. Both sides are acting tough, probably a lot tougher than they are prepared to be when they get down to actual negotiation. Each is demanding that the other make the first offer. But it is significant that Mussolini's demands have been pared down, and that Daladier's defiant public utterances have carefully refrained from rejection of Italian demands or refusal to negotiate. Mussolini is a cool-headed realist. He doesn't want war, but a good price for cracking up the axis. And the chances seem to be good that he will get it, for nothing could be more valuable to France and Britain, now definitely lined up in military opposition to Hitler^ than assurance of freedom of action in the Mediterranean and of the safety ot the French frontier facing Italy and Spain. « * + Finances Attract Spain rpHE end of the Spanish war may help along the -«· anti-nazi combination which is shaping up. With the end of fighting, Franco needs vast financial help to rebuild the devastated country- His troops and those of the loyalists are wearv of fighting. There must ensue, now, a long period of reconstruction in which peace is vitally necessary. Mussolini's usefulness to Franco ended with the surrender of the loyalists and the collapse of the reds. He could supply men and munitions, , but he can't supply money and materials. And it is very doubtful if Franco will be greatly moved by gratitude--governments don't operate tha£ way. So it will probably not be too difficult for the French and British to arrange for Spanish neutrality, if not actual assistance, despite the large part that the axis has played, up to now, in Franco's capital. The Spanish dictator has an enormous job on his hands. Estimates of the political prisoners rounded up since the surrender run to as high as 600,000. Dealing with these, and arranging some formula by which Spanish life may go forward, will occupy his best efforts for months if not years He, too, may have demands to make on France, lor the moment is propitious. And he will, very likely, get most of what he asks, both in the way of African territory and financial aid. As events in Europe hasten toward a showdown with Britain's definite abandonment of "appeasement" and the beginnings of a coalition to encircle the nazis, it is appropriate that American foreign policy faces a public showdown. In spite of all the administration could do to stop it, the senate foreign affairs committee has decided upon public hearings on the neutrality bills that arc pending. t OOOjOOO PEOPLE , ANP EACH MON-TH Hl5 EMPIRE.

Canfield, architectural engineer from Des Moines, that this section of the construction was "badly deteriorated" and "unsafe for the ordinary roof loadings." The construction of a permanent dog pound in commissioners park has been started by members of the city water department, and six individual cages will be completed by Wednesday. The bear cage in East park has been used as a temporary dog prison. TWENTY YEARS AGO--. Mrs. \V. E. Brice and Mrs. J. W.

YEARS AGO-- A good substantial drop in eggs is reported this week and grocers are offering only IS cents today for the fruit of the hen. They will go still lower and dreams of the delectable egg omelet may recur. Butter also has a tendency to be uneasy. Grocers today are quoting prices at from 18 to 20 cents. March was the biggest month in the history of Cerro Gordo county in the number of deeds recorded in the office of Recorder Watson. A total of 144 such papers were filed during the past lour weeks which exceeded ihe number tiled in any previous month. Two new clerks took their places in the post- office Monday morning. They are Claude Whitney and S. A. Koch- The demands of the office are such that additional force is required. ABOUT BOOKS By John Selby "GOD'S VALLEY: PEOPLE AND POWEIl ALONG THE TENNESSEE RIVER," by Willson Whitman; (Viking: $3.) *pHE chief thing this reader got from Willson J- Whitman's excellent analysis of the TVA in '·God's Valley" was an intense desire to visit the valley and see for himself. Miss Whitman has amassed a lot of facts, which she presents in such an off-hand fashion, and so strangely, that although it is clear enough that she thinks the Authority is doing sn essential job which might even result in a revision of the so-called American system, the reader is never quite sure what she exactly means. The chief reason lor this last is that she has maintained throughout the fiction of parable. Chapter headings and occasionally the text itself has this flavor. Yet the book deals entirely with figures and presumed fact, excepting in the two page preamble entitled "Said the Preacher at Jordan's Bend.' 1 This, which leads into a section headed "Mists'" which is not about mists but about the racial backgrounds o£ the valley, seems a waste of space. If we have not been too hasty, it would appear that Miss Whitman's argument is about thus The authority has been established with the right lo sell power. This can just as logically be extended to cover the sale of shoes and strawberries. Perhaps this extension might not be a bad idea, however disturbing it may seem to the financial wizards who object to it but could not keep the country from hanging over the edge of a vast chasm entitled section 77A, But in any case there is a certain salvage. Flood control represents millions in saving a year, she adds. The rehabilitation of such districts as Grainger county (federal and state aid bill $205,000 in, one year) is another byproduct. More progress in soil-saving has been made in five years of TVA phosphates than "in 25 years o£ moral suasion." The cash value of trees and uncounted fish is to be considered, and savings in transportation costs as well. Miss Whitman has a pretty strong case, on paper. Yet it happened the writer had dinner with an investment counselor the other night. Last year his office had 90 employes. Yesterday it was 15. One wonders-- GOOD HEALTH By Logan Clendening, M. D, PROSPECTIVE FATHER GETS BREAK Washington Quotation About Feeding Birds think L. C. Madsen, 1713 J Delaware avenue northeast, naturalist and landscape architect, throws out some interesting thoughts in the following communication about birds and bird feeding: "Among the most useful tilings of all nature are our song birds. If we help our song birds a little they will help us a lot. They add beauty and charm to the outdoors, and those whose happiness we enjoy from morn till night are also most useful in an utilitarian way--destroying the enemies ot our crops. "I have seen countries that had many song birds. Those countries had few cutworms, beetles, mosquitoes and weeds. People there know it, and it was not only in the gardens and fields that the results was noticed but also in the forest, where trees stood healthy and strong. Such countries have beautiful, wonderful and valuable nature--a priceless aid to happiness! "Our game birds need help, but our song birds also need help, and they need it very much. Nor is it merely winter feeding they need, but general protection. When we provide winter feeding places for the birds, we must be very careful that they do not become also winter feeding places for the birds' enemies. "We.have many beautiful native flowers that are called weeds because they are rich in seed and grow too easily in cultivated areas. We have too many of them, so they have become weeds to us. Nature should be helped to keep such flowers in check. That same thing- is true of shrubs, trees and birds. Some are too plentiful and they submerge the few. "So when we build up our nature for its most benefit, we must select the good shrubs, and trees, the best flowers and birds; and we must destroy some of the others Those selected should be cultivated .in the right way and landscaped into their greatest benefit and Use." OBSERVING Japanese Music (.was sitting at the table ji circle Sunday when the radio brought to us a program from Japan. It included speeches and music--or what purported to be music. In the midst of a number that had been identified by the announcer as a famous lullaby, one o£ our number came through with this observation: "That sounds funny to us--but what do you suppose a Japanese audience would think of a Benny Goodman swing number?" And there was agreement that the Japanese would have the greater reason for laughing. The world has few phenomena that would be more difficult o£ explanation than this thing called swing. Days Ctotouet To THE UNIDENTIFIED MASON CITYANS, who by financial assistance, shared the responsibility for paying passage of a refu- · gee from Czecho-SIovafcia, thus, affording him to find an opportunity for a new, and saner life in Argentina. Money could not be better spent than to rescue humans rrom the outrages of naziism, and the persons who donated this fi- faneial windfall to the Jewish refugee-can well feel that theirs was a noble, humanitarian accomplishment. Such concrete manifestation of the sympathy felt in this democracy for the unfortunates ot Czecho-Slovakia is indeed an encouraging omen. --o-Safety Sonnets are changing! The new social order is - 1 thinking of everyone. At last they have some propaganda for that lowest of human animals the prospective father. The Maternity Medical Center, 1 East 57th street, New York, is conducting a course, and the only requirement for entrance is that the applicant be a prospective father. They have also issued two pamphlets, "Syllabus--classes for prospective fathers," (15 cents), and "A Talk for Prospective Fathers," (10 cents.) In the old days everybody made the prospective father feel as if he were a criminal of the deepest dye; all the old ladies, not only long before but particularly during the event, cast baleful glances at him and sometimes even remarked that he had ought to be ashamed of himself. Only his wife seemed to feel that he was all right. Dr Clendeninir When he Ilad been a father six * *- lenaenln ff 01 - seven times, of course, he got over his inferiority complex and stood his ground, but the first time he just lay down and took it. The belief that maternity is (he concern of the woman folk has created havoc in many homes. At no time in her life does a woman more need the understanding help of her husband. She may not feel well. She may be frightened. She may be excited, irritable or emotional. She may be too casual about her needs. What a feeling of security she would have if her husband took the lead in providing the care that is needed to make maternity as comfortable and safe as it can be. The course begins with a few lectures on the physiology of reproduction, the beginnings o£ life the anatomy of the organs, and the stages of labor! the coming in of the milk and the puerperium With this knowledge and an understanding of some of the complications, such as vomiting, the father is in a better than sympathetic mood because it is an understanding 1 . Then there's a lecture on what a good doctor will do, when called, as he should be, early in the case. He will make a complete examination of the prospective mother from head to foot, also takin" blood pressure, urinalysis, weight and pelvic measurements. Then there is advice about making plans cady for adequate care--a good hospital or adequate provision in the home. In the next few lessons the father is given urae- fical demonstrations in how to bathe, feed, diaper (I've often wondered about that myself) and ·bubble" the baby, using "Junior," the rubber doll, as a model; in how to make attractive nursery furniture on a burdened budget, and many other useful matters. IMany prospective fathers must have felt as hopeless as Dr. Johnson when Boswell asked him what he would do if he were shut up in a tower with a new-born baby. This course should give them courage. Is there such a course organized in your town? There should be.
