Goodman as a member of the newly authorized fish and game commission will have the blessing of everybody familiar with Mr. Goodman's ability, his earnestness and his admirable grasp of the subject. tinder his dynamic leadership, the Izaak Walton league locally has become something more than a mere rod and gun club. It has put the emphasis on conservation in a broad and far-reaching way. Its appeal has been to all possessed of a desire to conserve the great outdoors, irrespective of their interest in either hunting or fishing. · Mr. Goodman is ideally situated to give a large share of bis time" and attention to the commission. Since his retirement from active business, he has devoted a great amount of energy to the Izaak Walton league. From a hobby It has grown to be almost his very life. The development of the local Izaak Walton chapter under his presidency and of the state organization during his term aa treasurer stand as eloquent proof of his leadership. In another field, the beauty of Mason City's school surroundings are a monument to his disinterested service to community. The bass nursery northeast of Mason City and the pike nursery at Clear Lake are in large measure his "children." The latter has attracted'Httention thruout the nation. "Northeastern Iowa,", says J. C. Robinson, president of the local Izaak Walton league chapter, "is entitled to a member on this commission and we believe that Mr. Goodman meets all the requirements." That is a. statement in few words of what the Globe-Gazette is trying to say in behalf of Mr. Goodman. His' appointment would be both popular with ' benefit. t,o, the cause of ' r "*' '-'"· ' ~ -- : ' ''·'"' .there is no disposition to observe it in law-abidin manner. In unmistakable terms the ultimatum ha been issued that farmers in the Tipton territory wh refuse to permit the test will have to submit to quarantine of 15 days. Then If the farmers persi in their hostility toward constituted authority, the will be arrested and prosecuted. Farmers in Wort Iowa generally have abided by the law in a spirit o welcome. There would be no point in letting a who still cling to a belief that the world is flat an that "science is the bunk" nullify all that has bee done by the more far-seeing farmers. Let the lav be enforced without fear or favor. NO LYNCHINGS IN IOWA TOW A has few things about which If is more entitle to boast than its classification in the federal record as one of the six states in the union which have ha no lynchings in more than twenty years. The other are Delaware, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada and Sout Dakota. Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshin Rhode Island and Vermont have never witnessed ynching. While this fact is comforting to lowans, U. S sta tistics compiled for last year are of a character tc cause concern. Th2 total number of victims was 21 (2 of them Negroes.) as against 10 the previous year. Nine states were included in the 1930 list, compared with 5 states in 1929. As would be guessed, most of these are southern states. There is no need for a discourse on the evils 01 ynch rule. It's enough to say that no state which tol crates lynching has a right to look upon itself as clvi ized.

There are two or three matters which could bring him here. One is the fact that, the United States is again becoming the magnet for the world's gold, our gold supply having mounted to record proportions in the last few months. The effect on exchange rates bothers the British, and does us no good. No doubt it will be discussed, and arrangements made to co-operate with London in adjusting money rates to keep world finances on an even keel. Another proposal x that Norman may have in his head is for an international credit bank to be used, in supplying- long-term credits' to finance international trade. That in brief means an agency to finance Russian purchases. Up to the present Russia can oily get short term credits, which has forced her to all available grain, lumber, oil.and other products abroad in order to get the funds necessary for the five year plan. It is the hope of advocates of the international credit bank that if Russia is allowed to borrow from other countries on usual terms, she will" keep her products at home, give the world markets a chance to recover--and not least of all, will be a good customer for machinery and other foreign products needed to complete the five-year plan. Russia would doubtless be willing to make considerable concessions to the capitalistic nations in return for such treatment. She has been asking for it, and suggesting reciprocation, for years. f ther ybuth ^ the state in peace and defend the nation in All these institutions, supported jointly by the federal government and the governments of the several states have faithfully and cheerfully fulfilled T the let- A survey of all the land-grant colleges and univer- .^fn; r ^ftly com pl eted by the federal office of ed"- cation rates them among the most patriotic efficient ' that they defend their rights as citizens. 7 t n mL?tl nS 5 a «empt of a misguided minority ^ t r ^ h f W Vocational system that is fostering m the hearts of American youth the national ideals of Washington Jefferson and Lincoln, the patriotic Iowa legislators have rendered a service to the nation IT'S EASY TO CRITICIZE Mitchell County Press (OsngB): During the twenty years this writer has heen in business in Osage he ?* *"^S^^ff P-Mic official called a crook.

How aoes air travel between Florida nnd Cubu compare with thnt between London and Paris? H. F. A. Until recently the most heavily traveled airplane passenger' route in the world has been that between London and Paris Now however, the Miami-Havana service has passed it. More passengers flew between Miami and Havana in a six-day period than have ever flown between France, and Britain m the same length of time. The Pans-London route is credited with not more thnn 100 passengers a day, but from Feb. 18 to Feb. 24 a minimum of 105 passengers daily flew over the 210 miles of keys and water between Florida and Cuba.

CANCER NEVER TAKES ROOT IN A HEALTHY SPOT 'HE RECEIPT of a good-sized volume named "Can- A cer," by Dr. Willy Meyer, is acknowledged Dr Meyer has long been one of the most distinguished f New Yorks surgeons. His experience has been "ous, so that anything he says on such a sub- important. and an s r , school board mem C " y CO unt y officers, ers, justices of the peace-- everv- ?v h yvg n r he t?"", "=rook" applied to them repeated- y by people miffed over something. And we suppose that plenty of people have believed it. Every now and then some chap will remark to us, with a leer, that he hears that so-and-so makes a pretty good thing out of his office. Of course it's some fellow who isn't in a position to know and. who would rather swallow some random remark he hears than to go to the trouble to look into things. Think as hard as we can, we can't recall a single man in that twenty years' time wh m e w o ·was seriously accused of "getting" anything. Plenty of officials have sold materials and goods to the public, which is unlawful, but in every case we've heard of, such sales were to the benefit of the public rather than to the officials. The integrity of public officials Is really surprisingly high, but they suffer somewhat trom the sensational discoveries of dishonesty in some " " C i t e S - Pe ° Pe ° ple read iTi some distant city, then brand all officials everywhere \vith suspicion.

Accompanying this chronic systemic disturbance, i. e., a change of the chemistry of the whole body. This theory is developed in great detail and buttressed by an enormous array of evidence of many kinds from the sciences of heredity -".d genetics, chemistry, physiology id anatomy. It has a practical importance in these days when, aa Dr. Meyer says the medical profession is so cancer- conscious. This lies in the warning for any person over 45 to get rid of ,,_, .. . an y s P Qt of irritation or chronic In- animation on the skin or surface of the body such fl. mout h cavity--tongue, gums, cheeks etc Cancer never begins in a healthy spot."

After the senate had accepted it. by a lopsided vote the house stepped on it, largely, it is reported, because of the activity of the Hancock county man. To us any bill which tends to insure driving ability or financial responsibility in a motorist is off to a good start. Eventually we hope to see a law which will require every driver to prove that he Is prepared to meet every responsibility which attaches to motoring, thru .insurance or bond. The driver's license law was a move in that direction. It isn't necessary to consider the shortcomings of present motoring conditions. Probably four out of five, as a matter of fairness and prudence, could meet all the demands that the Globe-Gazette has in mind. And those four out of five are entitled to protection from the fly-by-night motorist who is both reckless as to driving methods and irresponsible as to financial liability. Possibly Mr. Durant had good reason for opposing tha driver's license bill. That's why we are inviting Jiim to present hia story. May we hear from you, Mr. Durant?

It has often come up in let? ters from readers addressed to this column The occurrence of "cancer houses" has often been reported --houses in which a large number of cancer deaths occur over a period of years. "Cancer cities" such as ?nnnnn whe TM . the incidence of cancer is 165 per 100,000 population as compared to 63 for New York-this constitutes another problem which Dr Mover discusses at length. His conclusion is that there is no real evidence, that these occurrences are due to a special kind of contagion. A combination of hereditary predisposition and the irritation from chronic nonspecific infection' such as might be caused by bad drains, sewage, vermin, rats and the parasites associated with rats, mice and other animals brings about a cancer state. , Chemical irritants, especially tar and perhaps according- to another investigator, sulphur compounds have an undoubted Influence in causing cancer.

Who's Who and Timely Views THINKS JAPAN WOULD LIKE PHILIPPINES By DR. HKRBEIIT ADAMS GIBBONS Author nnd lecturer. YOU'RE THE JUDGE T'HE DODAD DISTRIBUTION COMPANY had need i. . o f . a certain. little contraption it intended to put on the market. It took its design to the P B company. For n time the Dodad company took all the contraptions that the Holtz company manufactured and shipped, but eventually the Dodad company while still accepting the goods, had fallen behind in its payments. The Holtz company meant business and when no payments came it. decided to enter suit. At the time the contract was entered into, the Dodad company consisted of two partners, K n the Holtz company filed suit against these two, but at the trial these two proved themselves insolvent, so the manufacturing company could make no recovery. But it wns also learned that associated with these two was a third man, a silent partner, with whom' the others had an agreement that he join with the firm in all its business ventures. Tlic Holtz company, therefore, immediately filed suit against him. ' How would you decide this cose?

Well, it is not what in but xvhat one thinks that matters.

Japan Is the logical successor of the United States as mentor of the Filipinos.

If the Filipinos want to get rid of the Americans, the Japanese succession is the only alternative I * c .?: Jt^vould be impossible for the · l-ilipmos to maintain complete independence against Japan. Let us talk facts. We all know that to bo true. Would It not he good policy, then in view of the Filipino attitude toward us, for the United States to negotiate with the League of Nations for the appointment of Japan as mandatory of the League for these islands?
