This common phenomenon, is: "Why is grass green?" Each, spring this mystery of nature bursts forth and still science keeps its tongue in its cheek and says nothing. Of course, there is a scientific and highsounding chemical formula for the green color of grass, but so complex that it is ' amusing. Ask a color chemist or a university botanist why grass is green and they quickly fall back on 1he old textbook formula: "Chlorophyll." That is a dignified dodge for scientific ignorance. Chlorophyll is a combination of two Greek terms meaning "light green color" and "leaf." When the botany classes ask their instructor, "Why is grass green?" they are usually told that the blades of grass contain "chlorophyll" which occurs only in the "chloroplasts" of plant cells exposed to the light. Ah then, what are "chloro- plasts?" These, it seems are "plastids containing chlorophyll," which brings one back to the starting point. Chemically, we may extract the green of the grass and discover that, "It is a complex nitrogenous substance, containing both green pigments (chlorophyll, allochlorophyll) and yellow pigments (chrysophyl, xanthophyll)." And that is the border of man's knowledge. The chairman of General Motors research division, Charles F. "Boss" Kettering, has chided science for years in his search for an answer as to why grass is green. He personally has devoted much practical and laboratory research in this . quest but every time, like Omar Khayam, "he goes out by the same door as in he went." Perhaps Providence never intended that man should know what lies beyond the husk of matter. School child and scientist alike may tear grass apart, break it, crush it, dissolve it--but the mystery does not yield. There is more of the unknown in a blade of grass or a drop of water than science, for all its cunning, can fathom. Grass may be broken down . chemically, cellularly, and analytically, yet that bright sparkle of green defies every human process of research. Man with his 200-inch telescopes may chart canals on Mars Or plot the structure of the moon's craters, but so humble and commonplace a spectacle as a blade of grass mocks explanation. Botany knows why sap rises in the tree trunks by osmosis, but it cannot penetrate the inner secrets of a blade of grass. Appropriately enough this resurgence of life in the vegetable kingdom is coincidental with the Easter season, which stands for new life in the spiritual realm. i t s More Fishing Recommended TVEPHESENTATIVE BRUCE BARTON of New lx York is one member of the house who has a new approach to political arguments. Bruce Barton, an advertising man who went to congress to strike at the roots of political hypocrisy and new deal law-making, breaks into print regularly with some canny observations on Mr. Roosevelt's record. This time Bruce Barton contributed both smiles and a severe shock to the house when he announced that President Roosevelt's seven absences from the white house on fishing trips and vacations have netted the United States a gain of $!·!,- 484,000,000 in securities listed on the New York stock exchange. On the other hand, Bruce Barton showed that Mr. Roosevelt's 20 speaking tours in the past six years have cost this country a loss of $3,162,000 in depreciated'securities. Representative Barton is not talking idly, in making fantastic political claims. His conclusions, based on statistics of the way the markets have reacted to Roosevelt, proved his contentions. The nation has benefited a great deal by Mr. Hoosevelt's fishing trips and vacation trips to Hyde Park and Warm Springs. On the five fishing trips during Mr. Koosevelt's six years in office security prices rose five times and gained 20.1 points on an average. In Mr. Roosevelt's 22 trips to Hyde Park the market rose 13 times and stocks gained 22.5 points. Conversely, on Mr. Roosevelt's 20 speaking trips throughout the country to denounce business and spread political consternation the market fell 14 times for an aggregate loss of 9.3 points. With Roosevelt again in Warm Springs there will be a keen watch on Wall street to see how the nation reacts to Roosevelt's absence. Apparently Bruce Barton has convinced congress that business is better when Roosevelt is away, which is an indication of how much better off the country will be when Roosevelt's term in office ends, « t * China Doesn't Conquer Easily j^EWS dispatches from China are to the effect A11 that the Japanese are continuing their advances into the interior of the invaded country, but they also tell of the continuing raids o{ the defenders. Airplanes of the Chinese struck at two widely separated points in one day and it is stated they did considerable damage'at both places. This sort of thing doubtless will continue for an indefinite period. In fact there will never be peace, in China, no matter what amount of treasure and man power the Japs may pour into the country. The greatest difficulty with China is its insufficient number of planes. If the Russians were not in the position they are, with Europe in a turmoil and no one able to tell what will happen next, they would be better able to lend aid to the Chinese than they are. But even without such aid the Chinese, accustomed as great numbers of them are to guerilla warfare, will be able to keep their enemies on the qui vive everlastingly and there is no doubt they do so. There will be no peace in the Orient, The president in his quest for judicial appointees seeks some broad-minded person who believes just exactly as he does on all questions. , * * * ' If the nation quit subsidizing some of the railroads' competitors, going wouldn't be nearly as tough on the rolling stock. * * * Setting up tariff walls at every state line would be an effective way to turn the United States into the Balkan states. » * » From Bergdoll's actions one must conclude that imprisonment in America is preferable to freedom in Germany. * * * Mark this well: The next war will both begin and end in the trenches and be fought by men with riltes. * * * The dictators have just about reached the end of their rope--the end that will hang them, let it be hoped. * » * In any debatable question there are two sides-your side and the wrong side. » * » It isn't the automobile, it's the driver that's dangerous. PROS and CONS Some Interesting Viewpoints Gleaned From Our Exchangee Dictatorship Feared as Fruit of War Algona Advance: Perhaps the greatest reason p£ all why America fears getting into another war is the menace of dictatorship in this country. War cannot be waged any more without making the head p£ the nation a virtual dictator. It was done here in many ways in the last war, and it would have to be done on a vastly greater scale if war should come again. And then we might no longer be able to get out from'under as we did after 1918. Based on Partisanship Marshalltown Times-Republican: Impeachment of Miss Perkins dropped. It never should have begun. There was no chance of impeachment being successful. Most impeachment proceedings fall by the wayside whether in state or national affairs. And anyway the proceeding against Perkins was bluff and partisan at the bottom of it. No Work for a Ghost Ringsted Dispatch: The fellow who wrote a book recently- claiming Adolf Hitler is dead and that a double is now doing all the German dictator's dirty work timed the announcement of his book badly. We can't believe a ghost was responsible for Germany's seizure of Czecho-Slovakia last week. Is Hitler Merely Bismark's Successor? Swea City Herald: Uppermost in the minds o£ most Americans is the question concerning; Hitler. Is he a power-drunk madman, or does the philosophy, or outlook, dating from the time of Bismark actuate in him a consuming desire to lead the German peoples to a destiny which ends in the complete domination of all central Europe? Hopkins Points the Way Belmohd Independent: If this government actually puts into effect a constructive policy such as described by Mr. Hopkins, there will be a resurgence of industrial expansion that will really bring recovery. He has pointed to the sound way out of the doldrums. It remains to be seen now whether other men in high position will take a similarly constructive stand. How CoKon Scarcity Works Out Manly Signal: The government continues to hold up the price of our cotton artificially and foreign nations continue to buy more cotton from alien producers and less from us. This is called making the American cotton farmer richer by building up his competitors. Uncle Sam Must Be Prepared Algona Upper Des Moines: Preparedness is the only insurance policy that the United States can have which might keep us from becoming somebody's door mat in either the near or distant future. Ours Is a Representative Government Fairmont, Minn., Sentinel: We'll not favor this nonsense of "let the people vote whether there shall be war or not" until we have lost all faith in our form of government. And then it won't make any difference. Does a Dollar Circulate? Iowa Recorder (Greene): The Recorder is spending a dollar this week with a slip on it! If you get the dollar, sign the slip and use it locally! Soe how far it goes in 30'days, just for "fun! Please don't take the slip off! It's all in fun. Newkirk's Athletic Achievement Sheldon Mail: The ability of a small community like Newkirk to produce a team like it did, is one of the most remarkable events in Iowa sports history. Economy Leads to Prosperity Emmetsburg Reporter: It is a historical fact that one of the greatest booms in business in this country followed the greatest slash in federal spending in our history. The Senate's Ittost Bellicose Member Sioux City Tribune: If something isn't done to restrain Senator Key Pittman of Nevada, the poor fellow is liable Io declare a one-man American war on Hitler. He's becoming that violent. MAIL BAG Interesting Letters Up to 250 Words Are Wefcome A CHECKER PLAYER'S DEFENSE TlffASON CITY--In December I was president of J-* 1 the Cerro Gordo Checker club and Floyd R. Davis, former manager of the Postal Telegraph, was vice president. We sponsored and supervised a county checker tournament at the Y. M. C. A. After we resigned Earl Barker became active head of the club. I suggested to Don Davis and Earl Barker that we hold a North Iowa checker tournament at the Cerro Gordo hotel and on March 5 Don Davis o£ Nora Springs defeated the checker royalty of northern Iowa, including Doctor Brewster of Britt and DeVere Hirt o£ Forest City. The Mason City team defeated Charles City at Charles City by a score of 56 to 44. A week ago Earl Barker showed me a card he had received from the Charles City delegation. They had defeated Osage by a score of 48 to 47. They stated they would like to come here, so arrangements were made to play at the Cerro Gordo hotel on March 28 in the evening. The paper stated that Mason City defeated the Charles City team. The other day I chanced to stroll in the Pleazol Smoke shop and my friends were in a jesting mood --they accused me of playing on the Charles City team--they said it was a disloyal thing for me to do so I wish to say here that it was my friend Attorney Erwin Larson of Charles City that played on his own team. I played only four games before the tourney started and they were with Ross Kidder of the employment agency. We had a game apiece and two draws. Ross Kidder, former North Iowa champion, received 15 points, twice as many as any member of the Charles City delegation.

From Globe-Gazette Files THIRTY YEARS AGO-- The banquet to the businessmen of the city given by the food stuff handlers here, Thursday evening, was the occasion of a good April Fool joke played by the ladies who served the banquet. Toward *he last of the feast several demure servitors passed plates containing dates which were nicely sugared and pretended to be stuffed with some delicacy. The stuffing, however, was not as delicious as the exterior as it was ordinary cotton batting. Some of the banqueters, however, in their innocence worried down the cotton. Some of the boys near Frank Felt induced him to put sugar in his bouillon. 3. W. Irons is home from a few days in Cedar Rapids where he was on business, TWENTY YEARS AGO-- Word has been received that another Mason City boy, Sergeant Milo Young, has' landed in the states. Sergeant Young was overseas for an extended period of time. He expects to return to Mason City just as soon as he is discharged from the army service. James Killian of Cedar Rapids is visiting at the Louis Killian residence, 615 North Jefferson avenue. Rollin Duffield writes that work on the drilling of an oil well on his property in Oklahoma was begun Monday. Prospects are bright for a fine well of oil. Rolin hopes to be able to report a find soon. TEN YEARS AGO-- A surprise party was given for Jack Fisher in honor of his birthday anniversary at Mr. and Mrs. Fisher's residence in the Globe-Gazette apartments, Tuesday evening. Twenty-two guests were present. Five hundred was played during the evening, after which refreshments were served. Mr. Fisher received many gifts. Following are the officers o£ the Loyal Order of Moose elected at the meeting Tuesday evening: Dictator, Herman Hamblin; vice dictator, W. C. Groth; prelate, Larry Thomas; treasurer, Earl Clausen; trustee for three years, Roy Garlock; representative to supreme lodge, Bert Argetsinger. Their official duties began May 1. During the business meeting there was a discussion on the proposal of bringing the state convention to Mason City in 1930. Mr. and Mrs. George Penson, 217 Second street southeast, have returned from California where they, spent the winter months. ABOUT BOOKS By John Selby "JUBAL TROOP," by Paul I. Wellman; (Carrlck and Evans: $2.75.) lived in the region of the great plains, as the writer has, will have known a Jubal Troop. These will understand, then, that the hero of Paul I. Wellman's "Jubal Troop" is not a super-super-glamorous figure, but a type Not a great many were cast from Jubal Troop's mould, but these so impressed the vague region which New Yorkers call "the west" that there was a day when they might almost have been said to have created the country, rather than the other way about. It is difficult to know what people whose physical boundaries are restricted to the space between their cramped apartment, the hardware and notions counter misnamed the drug store, the nearest movie and the office may think of Mr Wellman's novel. Such a magnificent scene as that in which Troop is blown south for hundreds of miles, trailing the cattle swept along by the 188S buzzard, may seem incredible to them. So much the worse for them if it does. For events like that happened on the plains and men like Jubal Troop survived them, tore what they wanted from the plains' soil, pumped out the oil, crushed men and sometimes were at last crushed themselves. There was a long romantic period and there are records to prove its events. . V.'!"*' 81 Tro °P" s a great novel in the romantic tradition. U begins with Jubal in late adolescence his face covered with cold sores. It ends after Jubal has created an empire and lost most of it; there is a long succession of fabulous scenes murders, seductions, fights, machinations of various sorts, journeys, litigations, whatnot. Jubal has lived more in his 45 years than most men could have lived in 90. There is a peculiar wry flavor over the last pages which will linger a long while with the reader. But the thing about Mr. Wellman's book that leads one to hope that writing editorials for the Kansas City Star won't interfere with his novel production is the fact that all these incidents live The novel could have died 10 times before the end. Because the author knows what he writes about, Jubal Troop" merely gathers momentum with each new incident. GOOD HEALTH By Logan Clendening, M. D. LEAD POISONING CONTROL CEVERAL years ago a New York physician " bought an old Colonial house, in Greenwich, Connecticut. In modernizing the plumbing a copper hot water tank was installed. Two years later the doctor noticed uncertainty of walking on a rough road in the dark; he could not maintain his balance. An airedale dog was noticed to act queerly, refuse food and fell into a stupor. A veterinary diagnosed raties and the dog was shot. The following winter the doctor noticed such impairment in memory in himself as to cause him grave concern. It was a defect of memory foe immediate recent events, such as remembering what he read on the page before. He felt it was an impairment of cerebral function prob-' ably due to age. When the snow cleared off he again experienced difficulty in walking on a rough _ road, and many accidental col- Dr. Clendemnff felons with furniture. He told his wife that he felt he had something serious the matter with him and had decided to consult a doctor. He then learned the following lacts: The family cat had developed an inco-ordina- tion similar to his. The cat had fallen heavily while trying to jump to a window sill, a thing he had long been doing with ease. His wife had noticed a numbness in her fingers, so that she could hardly hold a needle to sew. She had regarded this an an inevitable consequence of the march of time until the housekeeper had begun to complain of numbness of the legs. The doctor had thought his trouble a progressive organic nervous disease, but now it looked as if a toxic agent to which they had all been exposed was responsible. At this point he was told of some similar cases found by the American Telephone and Telegraph company that had been caused by chronic lead poisoning. An investigation snowed that everyone in the household was "leaded." It was also found that the water from the hot,water tank (in which all the vegetables the family ate were boiled) contained 0.18 milligrams of lead per liter. The eat had eaten these vegetables. The dog had been fed such food for two years. The plumber who had put in the tank used lead paint on the pipe joints, and all the inside joints had been wiped'with lead solder. Under proper treatment the symptoms abated, and then a most astonishing sequel occurred. The proper treatment for lead poisoning includes plentiful green vegetables. When they returned to.New York the symptoms or numbness returned and they found the vegetables they were eating were covered with lead arsenate. Lead arsenate spray is used especially on apples, but also on nearly every kind of fruit and green vegetable. It is the most effective and economical agent against insects. Farmers are apt to resent investigation of spray residues. They argue that since their families eat the food they send to market and have no symptoms, it must be harmless. But no one knows how many farm families are suffering from disabilities regarded as an act of God or the disabilities of old age, and really due to chronic lead poisoning. Control measures should be taken. Examine His Head see where a Colorado pro- ·fessor thinks that the law acted too "abruptly" with that western Tarzan who loved to range the hills, eat raw meat and kill folks who restrained him in either pursuit. His background should have been studied, the psychologist contends. Nerts! The officers were just old mean- ies to put a boy in jail for killing elk out o£ season. It was too "abrupt." They should have wiped his little nose and shaken a finger at him! Let me quote a bit fi-orti the professor: "Perhaps Durand had a craving to get away to the wilds. In former times, getting away from civilization occasionally was possible, but D u r a n d probably felt society creeping up on him. "If more persons were able to get away into the wiids occasionally they might cure some of the ills of civilization.'In my opinion the law enforcement agencies are not tolerant enough of the individual differences in personalities." And five men dead! Somebody once defined an educational specialist as a man who learns more and more about less and less until he knows absolutely everything about nothing. That's unfair, of course, but when a teacher of youth gets so broadly tolerant of mental quirks that he objects to protecting s o c i e t y against a five-time killer, his own mental quirks need examination. This particular professor may be educated but he is notoriously lacking in wisdom. --o-We Never Know ; am in receipt of the following bit of sound philosophy in verse from C. C., Buffalo Center farmer: "I thought my neighbors mean and sour, self-centered, gieeily and all that, till I fell oil mr windmill tower and fractured hall a dozen slats. "Then they came with streaming eyes to linger near ray humble fate, to brinr me tnulton broth and pies, and sympathize with my sad late. "They moved with kindly, »llent tread ·eross the threshold of my aback, to offer pillows for my head and mustard plasters for my back. "Borne came to Ian my fevered brow and sit beside me night and day, while other* znilked my brlndle cow and. slopped iny shoats, and cut my bay. "Neileeted were their dally tasks, lor- totten all their thoughts or tain; the highest joy they seem to ask was just io help me bear my pain. "They were as kind In words and deeds M any neighbors well could be. They helped me when I was in need and languished In adversity. "So now when they ahont their tasks go rushing by my doar each day, X will not think, as in the past, that they are cold and heartless Jays. "For so they seetn so badly bent on harvesting the scads of dimes, they all will come, w i t h kind intent, to see a neighbor through, hard times. "And this sad fact is. 1 confess. n,nUe irne of folkx both near and far: We never know till In distress how kind the people roand us are." MEADOW MELODIES By Roy Murray of Buffalo Center POINTS OF PERFECTION Twelve things in women you should seek If you would crave perfection, I'U list them here in groups of twos You need make no correction. Two things white you'll surely want And these are teeth and shin. While brows and hair are two things black With gleam like raven's wing. The two things red are easy said Just Hps and cheeks, you know, For two things blue, blue blood a«d eyes With love long may they glow. The two things long, you must'nt miss For hands and neck they be, Vhile two things short will bring content Her ears and memory. Starting AH Over think what happened at the Decker crossing late Saturday afternoon demonstrates how slender the thread is by which a community's traffic safety record hangs. It was an open crossing and there was a blinker in operation at the crossing. Clearly it was a case of momentary lapse of caution on the part of the drive*, with tragic results. In the twinkling of an eye a record unequaled in America--S9 months without a fatality -- was destroyed. We're back to the starting line again. And our only hope of success is that every individual citizen wJU assume an individual responsibility for his or her part in' the cause. It isn't a responsibility that can be transferred.

This Hampton-born lowan has served his country well, since 1897 when he was graduated from the United States naval academy, and on his retirement after adjournment of the present congress, carries with him the best wishes of, not only his subordinates in the navy, but the entire country.

Were the travels of Marco Polo believed by people of his age? G. K. Polo's book was not received with faith by his contemporaries. When he came back from the east, a misty, unknown country, full of splendour and terrors, he could not tell the whole truth. He had to leave his tale half told lest he should lack believers. How little Marco Polo was credited may be judged from the fact that the map of Asia was not modified by his discoveries untill 50 years after his death. His book is one of the great books of travel. Even now, after the lapse o£ six centuries, it remains the chief authority for parts of central Asia, and of the vast Chinese empire. How many men have attended the National Police academy of the federal bureau of investigation? T. H. Since the first session in July, 1935, approximately 300 officers have completed the course.

The Algonkin tribe of Massa- chuset formerly lived around Boston and the name of the state was derived from these Indians. They may have at one time numbered about 3,000, but were reduced by Pestilence before the colonial set- Htment began »nd soon lost their tribal identity. What is the origin of the word MoncF? J. M. The word is believed to be derived from Moneta, an attribute of the Roman goddess Juno, because the ancient Roman mint was established in the temple of Juno Moneta.

When thoroughly boiled, the mixture is taken out with a ladle and poured through a strainer into a churn. Butter and salt are added and the whole churned until it is well mixed alter which it looks like cafe au lait The consumption of this beverage among the Tibetans is enormous, most of them drinking from 30 to 50 cups a day. It is said to give a high power of resistance to both cold and hunger. Beer brewed from barley is another popular drink there. How much money is spent in buying articles on the installment ptan? E.
