W., and the .·"· county bar association were put off to a good start in their series of programs designed to stimulate "global thinking" at the high school Tuesday night %vhen Doctor Max Habicht, eminent Swiss authority' on international law, addressed his audience on "The Nations Co-operating in Wartime." i Doctor Habicht has a league of nations background. From a point of vantage he could and ^did observe its impotence as an agency set up for the high purpose of preventing war. Its fundamental deficiencies, from his point of view, were twofold: N First, tts decisions had to lie based on a unanimous vote. For example, when Japan bombed Manchuria, Japan had only to vote "No"'to preclude punitive action by the league- on obvious absurdity. Second, there was no agency for enforcing leatrne decisions even U such decisions could . be reached. In short, there was no semblance of an international police force to deal with brigand nations. ' . ' * . * * TN HIS briefly sketched outline of au association ·*· of nations to follow on democratic victory in this war, Doctor Habicht naturally places first emphasis on remedying these obvious · shortcomings in the league that was.. Like many other thinkers on the subject of guaranteeing world order, Doctor Habicht is impressed by. the possibility of following the American pattern in the days when the colonies agreed to surrender a certain amount of sovereignty in the interest of creating a federal union. . He frankly recognized that there would be some cost attaching to this process of creating a world order--a cost in world sovereignty and, ' for this country, a cost in helping feed and police the world. This cost, however, he insisted on weighing against the far greater cost of recurring wars. . ·" : * * » *T«EN YEARS AGO--even five years ago--many in his audience (including this writer) would have.listened politely but with grave skepticism to Doctor Ifsbicht's idealism. Bui Tuesday night the distant roll of wardrums served to give substance to his lofty dreaming. It is well for Americans to come to. grips NOW with this kU-important matter of choosing the road most likely to lead to a lasting peace. An open mind--a mind cleared of past assumptions and prejudices--is the first requisite. Those responsible for this series of thought- provocative addresses are deserving, we think, of the community's heartiest gratitude. In pointing to the things which are wrong about the war effort, newspapers ought in fairness to draw attention at least incidentally to the fact that there is much more that is right about the war effort. * * * k If humans had to nose through three or four inches of crusted, snow for their daily bread, it would make them more sympathetic with their leathered friends at this time of year * » » ' Even it there weren't a law against it, double parking a car and discommoding other motorists would rank as the quintessence of automobile discourtesy. » * * Despite all their growling, American farmers are going to pitch in and raise food for the world just the same. * * tf Rationing is primarily an army word. And the question is: "Arc we good soldiers--or aren't we?" ( * * * Your kind act for the day may well be putting out a little food--crumbs or suet--for the birds » * * A few more gas ration cuts and those eastern car owners will be considering conversion to coal * . * * The winter thus far has been quite cold, thank you. .;' PROS and CONS' Some Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchanges / For the Good of All *-pHE RECENT notorious and nauseating de- ·*· fiance of the striking anthracite miners against the nation's wartime welfare should have an echo in prompt improvement by congress o£ existing labor legislation. For one. thing the despotic control of unions and their funds by dictatorial leaders should be broken up for all time. Union treasuries should be compelled to make public reports--as many o£ them now do--and such excesses as John L. Lewis' inordinate contribution to campaign funds (he's played both sides oE the street) should be stamped out. Lews has, as a local union official told the xvar labor board, $6,000,000 in his union's strongbox-and he can use it as he pleases without responsibility to the men whose money it actually i s . It is illegal for a corporation to make political contributions. Is there any reason why the great union organizations, fully as potent politically as any corporation, if not more so, sfiould be permitted to "buy" elections? And the right to strike in violation of an employment contract, especially on. work vital to the nation in time of war, should be completely dewed. All too often it becomes evident th£ the union spokesmen's promises n o t - t o strike -in war jobs are meaningless--that either the unions Cannot control the members which present legislation herds into their ranks, or that they are blinking at needless strikes and slow-downs' -There ,s an opportunity for solid, constructive" work in behalf of the whole nation in legislation to control such abuses. It would be, indeed, he better part of wisdom for union leaders to accept and further such legislation, rather than to insist on being a law unto themselves, irresponsible and specially privileged. If they insist on taking every advantage at the expense of the nation they will in the end see their whole structure overthrown, and the undoubted good that labor unions have accomplished will be destroyed as well as the present abuses. Union leadership today could use a little of the long-sighted v.-isdom of such leaders as old Sam Gompers. who saw political unionism as a tempting but destructive trap for organized labor * * * A Master of Detail -pHE DISTINGUISHING qualities of Alexander Woollcott's work .as a journalist, a novelist. rt iff H YM d! ° Tpers ° naUty ^« the thoroughness of its detail. In phraseology of that which he wrote, or spoke, he took the trouble to include details--details which generally escape a less- Imished and experienced worker. His style of de velopment of thought never suffered from o meticulous care which he exercised in gathering information but was warm and smooth and easy a mark of the master craftsman. His sudden death m the prime of life at a time when he had become an American institution represents a severe loss. We .Most Have Faith Indianola Record: The American farmer never needed faith and determination more than now. He i3 called upon for an increased production of food with no proportionate increase in tillable acreage and no adequate supply of farm workers in sight. But there is nothing to do but go through with it. We cannot back down in the face ot danger. We can go till we drop, and we must we must have faith that some way we will go on through. What the Farmer Must Have 'Mankato, Minn., Free Press: At the present time the farmer needs more machinery and he needs labor. And if provision isn't made so that he will have the machines with which to 'plant and harvest his crops, and the type of labor that can be educated in modern, scientific farming methods, the entire foundation of our program to feed and save the world will break down. The farmer's products are basic. Would Cut--Not Eliminate--State Income Tax Decorah Journal: Some democrats have introduced a bill to abolish the.Iowa stete income tax. We feel that is too drastic and that if the income tax is cut in two and the tax revised to give - more relief to the married man with dependents that should be tried and the law revised from time to time to provide revenue as needed Now that there is a state surplus, the demand should be light. Streamlined Program Recommended Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune: It's possible or so it appears to us, for the Iowa assembly to repel all unnecessary taxes, notably the state income levy, pass the essential appropriation bills, enact a minimum of such laws as may be actually- needed and adjourn. A streamlined legislative session in wartimes would please the people of Iowa tremendously. A Surplus Is a Temptation to Spend Algona Upper Des Moines: The large amount of money m the state treasury is a great temptation for spending by the legislature-on unnecessary projects at this critical time. The least that should be done would be cutting out the entire tax for this year and next. Then it would develop whether the tax could be permanently eliminated. . £VE® OBSERVING A Democratic View of Wilson Ackley World-Journal: Wilson, going to Washington as representative of the state of Iowa its People and all Iowa interests, is expected to' TWM ,,,, .,,,, . _ _ establish a good reputation for the state and abil- ' JEN YEARS AGO ity of its men in the public service.

TWENTY YEARS AGO Iowa's oldest piece of paving, the one mile stretch west out of the city limits, was material for a talk by Raymond Zack of Mason City at the 3oth annual meeting of the Iowa Engineering Society in Des Moines four days this week Have You Given? Ottumwa Courier: The test of a book to be ?^ et V° the Victol 'y bo °k campaign is whether it is the sort of book you enjoy, one that would ue enjoyed by sen-ice men among your friends and family. Why not stop right now, wrap up your Victory book donation and take it to the public library? 'The Sure Road to Inflation Webster City Freeman-Journal: "Demands for increases both in wages and in prices must be withheld in order to prevent depreciation of the value of our money," said King Gustaf of Sweden in a recent address. The king understands that deterioration of the value of money leads to inflation. Harmony Prevails at State House Eagle Grove Eagle: It is a source of satisfaction to the people to observe complete harmony amon* the high officials to whom the affairs of state have been entrusted for the next two years Particularly is this true in regard to the relations of the new governor and new lieutenant governor. American Legion Adds Its Voice Cedar Rapids Gazette: The national defense committee of the American Legion joins those who have been calling for longer working hours in war industries. In this attitude the Legion is apt to reflect the views of many of the men now in the armed forces. Editorial of the Day STATE BOOKKEEPING C. S. Ottumwa Courier TN HIS INAUGURAL address Governor Hicken- loop . e F I'rmly declared for a modernized system oi bookkeeping for Iowa. Monday he appointed a committee to go into the matter, with the hope of making real progress by July 1, the opening of the new fiscal year. The last legislature ap- none has been used. * Government is ponderous enough at the best in many cases systems in use today differ but little from those of decades ago. With everythin* else changing so rapidly, a lot of the burden ol official red tape could be snipped out by the installation of modernized methods. The state accounting methods make up but one of rhe possible improvements but they are an excellent point from which to work. Tradition has lost its role in todays pace. The biggest business--that of operating state government--calls for business methods. Simplification should be pursued to actual installing.

This makes John Lear's "Forgotten Front" important, and more. Mr. Lear was for some years a member of the Associated Press staff although now he is in Puerto Rico as one of Governor Tugwell's en- lourage. And while Lear was with the Associated Press he was given one of those coveted rovin" assignments; ho' says that Kent Cooper the "en- eral manager, asked him to find out how the Latin Americans felt about us. If you k/iew Lear you would understand that he not only would carry out this project, 'but would discover the reasons that made them feel that way, plus a mass of related and useful information. . Ostensibly, "Forgotten Front" is the story of a round-trip flight from. Lima to-Iquitos, a Peruvian town across the Andes and much closer" to the Amazon country than to Peru itself. The fiight was made in a patched up transport plane which probably should not have been flown at all. On the way back, with insufficient gasoline and a nervous pilot, disaster overtook the plane ana it was forced down in the Sechura desert Lear, the pilot, and a minor Peruvian official «et out afoot across the desert with a bottle of soda pop and one banana to sustain them, an umbrella for shelter. They walked to the Pacific eventually were picked up by a wandering party of octopus hunters. These took Lear to a little coastal town. . · The picture of the walk through the desert. ths rescue and the subsequent journey to civilization on the back of a burro, in the midst of other burros loaded with devilfish whose tentacles waved in the air as the animals picked their way through millions of starved birds, has a fantastic Dali-like quality I have not experienced for a long time. \ou wonder whether Lear was dream- R, 8 !^^ er ,' t is you tha V thought it all up. But it happened. H This is only part of "Forgotten Front" Th» remainder is local color, plus a reasoned and highly intelligent statement of the nazi penetration of South America that some of the author's GOOD HEALTH By Logan Clendening, M. D. MODERN LIFE 'pHE LADY dressed in Yellow was driving over ·* to the hospital in my car -where she was to take up her business of helping the nurses to copy charts. The Lady in Yellow and I had shared the same bedroom (for 29 years) and she and I had just shared breakfast. The Lady in Yellow is beginning to be a staff assistant. "What," said the Lady in Yellow, "does a capital H. surrounded by a circle mean?" "I do not know," I replied. "XVhat," asked the Lady in Yellow, "does small a, period,. small c, period, mean?" That I could answer. "It means before meals. Small p, period, small e, period* means after meals. Some drugs should be given on an empty stomach so that they will be absorbed; some should be given after meals so as to stop the conflict thereby created." "What does small p, period, small r, period, small n, period, mean?" Dr. Clendenincr "As necessary." It must indeed be a little difficult to get on to all the. abbreviations doctors use to write down, orders before the nurses copy them on the chart What," asked the Lady in Yellow "does capital P, period, capital A, period, mean?" "Pernicious anemia," 1 answered. "And then," I said, "OPA means ocular perception absent; and NRA means now red cells at rest;'and R.O.P. means right occiput posterior; and AJVI.A. means American Medical Association- and CIO means .convergent insufficiency of; and ODB means oil demanded for breakfast; and A.

"It's in the medical dictionary," I answered "·^S? NCB is nitr °2 e n. carbon and bromide; and NPN is non-protein nitrogen; and EKG is electrocardiograph; and TVA is tabes vessel anterior; and RFC is rejects to find cents' and DNB and AP and BVD--what is BVD?" v "Buttons very desirable," said the Lady In Yellow.

To wash articles of sheet rubber or rubber-coated cloth, place articles flat on a table and scrub with a soft brush dipped in suds of mild soap and warm water. Hinse and ' wipe dry with a soft cloth and hang away from heat and light to finish drying. To wash foundation garments of women, or, knitted rubber yarn, elastic cuffs and waistlines on sweaters, surgical garments, etc., squeeze garments between hands in lukewarm suds of mild soap, liinse at least three times. Roll quickly in a bathtowel to absorb excess moisture. Continue drying in a cool or moderately warm place. NEVER dry rubber articles in direct sunlight or near radiator or hot pipes. To remove oil, grease or tar, here is what to do. If the stain is new, warm water and soap will do the job. In. the case of a stubborn stain, sponge lightly with carbon tetrachloride which is oon- intlammable and will evaporate quickly without leaving a residue. Dp not fold rubber goods when storing. Dust talcum in ice bags and hot water bags. Inflate slightly so that surfaces do not come in contact. Wrap in paper and store in a cool, dark place. With o Smile! k am informed that this · verse by a Mason City girl, Loretta A.

"1 can't do that be. cause I love blm so, 1 raised him from a little babe, 1 quenched his every fear. And you expect me to be cay and stand around 'and cheer." Give that boy a stndott.

His observation is prompted by the practice of a group of youngsters at that corner of grabbing on to the back bumpers of passing cars and sliding along for a block or two on the frozen streets. This sport comes about as close to being classifiable as "suicide" _as anything known to me. And the remedy rests wholly with the youngsters;-dr their parents,' or school authorities.
