W. EVANS of the American bar ·"·association observed in a recent address at Omaha that the unethical conduct of one shyster lawyer discredits the whole legal profession. His view will receive ready assent from the lay public. Most lay folk will agree, too, with Mr. Evans' statement that the majority of lawyers do not approve of sharp practices resorted to by some of their number. The question, though, is this: What has the legal profession done, and what is it now doing, to place an effective curb on its unworthy members? Also, what is the bar as a whole doing to bring about a better administration of justice, both civil and criminal, and - to make litigation less expensive to citizens who are forced into it? One of the worst phases of pur present judicial system is the multitude of loopholes and technicalities through which criminal defendants who are undoubtedly guilty often escape punishment. Of course, if they did not have the services of expert lawyers to defend them they would find it more difficult to avoid the consequences of wrongdoing. Admitting that there may be some miscarriage of justice as. a result of applying the accepted rules of evidence, Mr. Evans nevertheless thinks lawyers act within their proper sphere by defending persons accused of crime, though believing them actually culpable. This is necessary, he says, under the American theory of jurisprudence which presumes a man innuo- cent until proved guilty. The lawyer for the defense, he suggests, is entitled to see that no improper evidence is admitted in the trial. If criminal lawyers went no further than that, all ground for criticism as to them would be removed. Everybody concedes that one charged with crime is entitled to a fair hearing before an impartial judge and jury. But no one should know better than the president of the American Bar association himself that counsellors for the defense do not ordinarily recognize any such limitation upon their efforts. Some, in fact, utilize every technical device and legal obstacle that can possibly serve to delay, obstruct, and defeat justice. Some take more satisfaction in clearing a client who4s an actual public.enemy and a. menace to society than In winning an ordinary case against some second rate offender. There are two reasons for this: First, because major criminals usually have plenty of financial resources behind them and can afford to pay big fees. Second, because the lawyer who wins an acquittal for a prominent defendant gets considerable publicity thereby, which brings him more lucrative business. The bar could, if it would, do a great deal to improve the system and make the courts better instruments for promoting the principles of law, equity, and justice. In order to do so, it must come down hard on those within its own ranks who recognize no ethical restraints. T. R. GLANVILLE PASSES rpHE passing of T. R. Glauville (Tommy to thou- ·*· sands of North lowans) brings a note of poignant sadness to this community. la his business relationships and in his performance of the duties of citizenship, his extended residence in Mason City was a constructive factor in the city's upbuilding. He lived the full life. * In the two score years here he saw this city grow from an over-sized county 1 seat to one of Iowa's livest industrial centers. His active business days were coincident with the community's .most rapid expansion, between 1905 and 1915, when Mason City outstripped other cities of the state in population gain by a wide percentage. This writer is not going to forget his occasional i morning walks of recent years with Mr. Glanville during which we listened to the unfolding of his intensely interesting views on game preservation and conservation in general. A hobby throughout his adult life, this subject became a major interest for him following retirement from the mercantile business some fifteen years ago. He was a genuine lover of the outdoors. Mr. Glanville's influence is deeply imbedded in the lives and memories of those among whom he livel his full life. "There was a man" will be a universal appraisal of him as this community pauses to pay iu final tribute to him. American freedom of the press. The strangulation of opinion and protest in nazi Germany are the best answer to this question. Whenever a government or a ruler assumes a "holler than thou" attitude and punishes counter-propaganda with death, that government ia unmistakably a tyranny. The "new Germany" is a madhouse of medieval cruelties and oppression. Nothing could prove this more conclusively than the latest Hitler pronouncement which says in effect: "When I ope my lips, let no dog- hark." PERTINENT or IMPERTINENT The Des Moines newspaper which so passionately opposed the Rathbun pardon of 20 years ago has been strangely noncommittal on a contemporary pardon involving a wealthy Des Moines citizen. No more ingenious method of wrecking the future of the republican party could be concocted than placing that old wheelhorse, Jim Watson, at the head of the national committee. Somebody suggests that Tammany seems to be the only member of the cat family incapable of washing itself. Tom Heflin now knows what Jack Dempsey found out; comebacks are difficult if not impossible. Huey Long now admits that he's done a sorry job in the senate. That was about the last precinct to be heard from. OTHER VIEWPOINTS THE "DIRT" IS ON THE OTHER HAND MarshaUtovvn Tiraes-KcpuWican: Considering that Lhe order arbitrarily removing Lieutenant Kraschel from his PWA "secretaryship" came directly from the democratic secretary of the interior the attack on Colflesh looks like the dirtiest of politics. Colflesh, as was his duty conducted the proceeding against Messrs. Beh and Kraschel which a democratic administration had ordered and for which the evidence of indictment had been gathered under democratic administrative order by its own agents. That the Beh trial was fairly conducted and the acquittal of the broker based en non intent to defraud and that the dismissal of the Kraschel case followed as a result is a matter of record which none may write derogation of Colflesh either as prosecuting attorney or as a republican or citizen. From the republican side the press has been entirely fair, possibly more than fair, to the lieutenant governor. If there has been unfairness the democratic national administration is responsible and if there is any "dirty politics" in the case it is in the effort to take unfair and partisan advantage of the failure to convict the democratic administration that had those men indicted. As concerns Mr. Colflesh he appears to be an able young man with a fine record behind him of service to his country in war, of a high class of citizenship :n peace and who has made his way mainly through his oxvn energy and character. He did his duty as federal prosecutor under the direction of the national democratic administration. The dirt is on the other hand. FARMERS DON'T QUITE SEE THE POINT Rockford Register: If the United States government has the authority along the line of controlling :ss to dictate what price a chick hatchery in Spencer, Iowa, may charge farmers and others for day-old chicks, and to say what a tailor in Boston may charge for pressing a suit of clothes and punish the offender in either case by fine or imprisonment, or both, farmers "as an economic group are at a loss to understand why the same government authority cannot take the economic bull by the horns and tell farmers of the country what they may charge for the' products they have to sell. If this ruling were put in force of forbidding farmers to sell their output for less than cost of production coupled with a fair profit, the ills from which we are at present suffering- would be largely removed. There is no question that the proposal is a reasonable one. The chief drawback, in the hypothetical situation would be lack of jails in which to house the offenders, but there would not be any offenders because cost plus a reasonable profit is just what farmers have been asking for and hoping that some power would give them. This idea that farmers -would risk terms in jail by selling their own sweat-produced output at less than cost is calculated to make one smile--is simply a confusyjn of sense and logic. NORTH IOWA PAPER RECOGNIZED Lake Mills Graphic: It made us feel pretty good last week when it was announced that the Graphic's front page was the best out of 500 entries from 26 states," and we felt still better when the Publishers Idea Exchange arrived Monday carrying this comment: "Hats off to G. W. Aasgaard, editor, who has one of the best looking newspapers in the middle west." It may appear that our "ego" is getting away with us as we pass these facts along to our readers but we ask for forbearance. It's So seldom, that these poor printers get any praise that they lose all good sense of judgment when it does come along. Now we're waiting for someone to come along and kick us in the seat of the pants to bring us back to earth. IT REQUIRES A VACUUM pROM Berlin comes the amazing announcement that " any propaganda ga'-inst the nazi state will hereafter be interpret?'', as high treason, punishable. by death. This is in accordance with laws recently pro. mulgated by the Peoples' Court of Justice. This is one of the new laws directed against "treason" against the Hitler regime. The Peoples' Court is authorized to deliver a death sentence for "high treasonable activities such as the production and distribution of illegal propaganda in the form of phonograph records, pamphlets, and the erection of unauthorized broadcasting stations." Of the five members of the court who will pass death sentences on their fellowmen only two will be lawyers and the others nazi henchmen. Dictatorship cannot weather criticism. The German decree of deatli for critics bears testimony to this truth. Dictatorship can only flourish in a vacuum.

By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. J). TESTS OF "ROUGHAGE" THE QUESTION of the advisability of giving roughage to help elimination has been hotly debated during the last few years. When roughage in the form of bran or other fibrousy vegetables, or in the more artificial form of agar-agar, mineral oil or psyllium seed--when the idea of the value of these materials first became known, there was nothing but praise for them. Then there came some mildly expressed doubts as to whether they did any good or not. Agar-agar, for instance, was reinforced by active cathartics like cascara, and phenolphthalein, in order to make it effective. Finally reports came out from clinics and physicians specializing in stomach "and intestinal work, that the use of roughage was actually Dr. dendenlBr harmful; that they had seen many patients who had so irritated their intestinal surfaces with continued onslaughts of roughage that they were sicker from the treatment than from the disease. This was not allowed to go without some objection, and the repercussion showed that bran, etc., was not as bad as the indictment read. The truth probably lies somewhere between the two e x t r e m e points of view. The type of person who uses roughage must be considered. People with naturally sensitive intestines, who feel that they must have one or two evacuations a day, are liable to make themselves extremely uncomfortable. Too much dosage and regular daily dosing is always bad--and is a very distinct danger when anyone starts in the habit of self-dosing, regulating the amount and time by their own judgment. Certainly the more you have of these substances, the more you feel you need. But that roughage has real value in more ways than one is undoubted, and has been well shown in a recent study on the use of regenerated cellulose. Regenerated cellulose is as nearly pure cellulose as can be obtained, is free of calcium, phosphorus and nitrogen, and looks something like chopped up cellophane. Being treated to remove all chemicals but the fibre, its action is due purely to its bulk. Measured amounts of this substance were found to be definitely laxative, increased the weight, water content and number of the evacuations. Another result was that there was an increase in the loss of nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus and other minerals from the body, so that the wisdom of giving a high roughage diet to children is questionable.

Kirschman is preparing an ordinance which will be submitted to the city council at its next meeting. The new law provides for the regulation of the price of gas and electricity to the consumer, which in all probability will be a popular ordinance if the people's voice has anything to say about it. The Woodman drill team enjoyed another of its popular dancing parties Thursday night. A large number of persons availed themselves of the opportunity of enjoying the diversion. Emery's orchestra furnished the music. Work on the new library building is being pushed rapidly to completion.

First, C. P. Chase of the Atlantic News-Telegraph, winner over all, is a personal acquaintance and friend. Hundreds of other Iowa newspaper workers could say the same for Percy Chase is one of the state's most widely known and universally popular journalist. Winning this most coveted of prizes is a wonderful testimonial to Mr. Chase's clear thinking and clear-cut writing. The grace with which he will wear his honor, however, reflects a quality in his makeup that has endeared him to the newspaper profession in Iowa, even to editors who don't agree with him half of the time. So much for Mr. Chase. Now for interest No. 2. A winner of honorable mention in this nationwide competition was James E. ! Lawrence, editor of the Lincoln Star, affiliated with the Globe-Gazette in the A. W. Lee group of newspapers. Here again I treasure a personal friendship. We "covered" the two national conventions together in 1932, I razzing him at one, he razzing me at the other and both of us relishing it immensely. It was Mr. Lawrence who stood at my side one day when a woman from Kansas came up out of the delegate section to my seat in the press section and greeted me as Will Rogers. Jim Lawrence is another ig enough to wear his distinction vith graciousness. Some day he will land at the top of the list--that's i prediction, chargeable to my re- lutation as prophet and seer. Mr. Chase's editorial has been ·eproduced in this newspaper. Mr. Lawrence's, titled "Iowa's Disgrace," was written on April 28, 933, and had to do with the nt- ack by farm agitators upon Dis- .rict Judge C. C. Bradley at LeMars. "The embattled 'farmers' of Le- Mars," said Mr. Lawrence at one point in his article, "besplotchcc heir Iowa neighbors. Thoughout his country, through the mob ac:ion, a doubt, a quesion, a misunderstanding of the true type of jlain citizenship was raised in 3very section of the United States :t will cause people to shake their leads. It will result in a loss of ;aith. It will prove the argument in he end for those groups which have jeen unfair and caustic in their at titude and in their publicly voiced :riticisms of the farming country.' The editorial concluded as fol lows: "The spirit of this hour shoul be right about lace. It should b the same, hopeful example to b seen in the White House at Wash ington. It should put lawlessnes behind it and it should resolve tha it will retain for Nebraska, th precious heritage of law and co tives. structlvc building.

I think while the talk of an election is the topic of their meeting: Why not let our three small boys take their broken toys and go home and play in their own back yard ? I wonder why they can't forget politics for a while and just remember Mason City and its needs. We are taxed now till it's outrageous. If Honorable Mr. Laird wants an electric plant, let him invest in a small Delco, install it in his own back yard and let that take up his time. Mason City doesn't want or need one. Its worst need at present is for men with men's minds--not men with minds of 7 or S year old boys. Trio, I voted for you hut I'm sure sorry and ashamed and if I keep my right mind, I can promise you not ever again will I be guilty--not even should it be for just common dog catchers. I'm a taxpayer here. I have no knives to grind and ask no favors. But I have a right as an American citizen to get up and speak my say. And I say all of you --Olson, Burns and Laird--resign! Put it up to the people. Let them say whether they desire your--I can't say services for you have not served. You have brought shame and disgrace to our city and the sooner you are out of office, the better pleased will be the people of Mason City. I hear on all sides that they--meaning you three--are a disgrace to our city. Well, I'm glad to get this off my chest.

MCNDV DON'T JUDGE BY EXTERNALS You are surprised and puzzled at the associates that some of your good friends seem to value highly. In analyzing them for yourself you cannot see anything about them that is pleasingly attractive or interesting. It may be that you do not know, these persons intimately enough to appreciate their fine qualities. You judge by appearance and social good manners. You are influenced by clothes and the way they are worn or perhaps by manner of speech or intimations as to social standing. Financial reputation or traditional "old family" standing is your guide in making friends. Political office means much to you, also. you would better revise your standards of what makes a desirable combination in choosing associates. from the oil fields and delivering it to refineries at far distant points.
