The disappointments of the day The worry of the toilsome way The fretf ulness and longing cease; Heaven breathes my troubled soul to peace And love and trust in God increase When Mother prays. A Sabbath it seems to me When Mother prays, A day of rest and purity When Mother prays, Faith whispers from the trembling lip And angels in glad fellowship With loving ministrations bear The myrrh and frankincense of prayer To Him who doth all burdens share When Mother prays. Gennessaret's storm tossed waves grow calm When Mother prays, And Gilead yields a healing balm When Mother prays. Upon the slopes' of Olivet I see His form through lashes wet Who toiled in dark Gethsemane And bore the cross to set me free, And I am near to Calvary When Mother prays. ---- 1» m mt APPEALS TO PREJUDICES ABSOLUTISM thrives on persecutions based on religious and racial differences. Dispatches from Europe intimate that persecution of the Jews exists in Russia. The news cables say the G. P. U., the soviet secret service, often connives to atrocities against Jews that are worse than anything ever committed in Germany. Tiis statement would seem to be unbelievable if it was not confirmed by inquiries into the condition of the Jews in Russia that have been made under the direction of prominent members of that race residing in Paris. The soviet government now in control in Russia was founded under Jewish leadership. If the soviet leaders in Russia are allowing persecution of the Jews, it is because they desire the support of elements in Russia unfriendly to the Hebrews. They are willing in their desire for power to wink at persecutions of members of the race to which many of them belong. History is but repeating itself. Whenever absolutism in government has entered upon a control of a nation, it has found appeals to religious and racial prejudices a valuable adjunct for retention of power. Hitler in Germany has attacked the Jews as a political movement. If the Russian soviet government is playing the same cards it has the same objectives as Hitler. Absolutisms thrive on narrOwTieSa and bigotry. A part of the soviet success in Russia has undoubtedly been due to its attacks in the past upon the Russian church and its attempts to stage the soviet theory of government as a religion. Jewish ideas evidently have run athwart of the soviet plans. Thus some Jews must suffer because of soviet ambitions. Democracies alone offer opportunity for real religious freedom. They foster freedom of speech and criticism of the government. Under such conditions breadth of view and charitableness of the opinions of others thrive. Political leaders rarely gain through an appeal to prejudices and administrations carried into office under such appeals are always short lived. That is why democracies will continue while absolutisms fail. Control in a few may hold sway for a period. Eventually the peoples of all countries will demand a return of government to themselves and the abolition of law making autocrats needing support based on prejudices to hold them in power. FUTURE STREAMLINING /-^ONDIDER the possibilities of streamlining. Trains ^·"that look like flying caterpillars and. autos that look like army tanks are just a start in the game. The next step is to overhaul ourselves along scientific lines. Ears that make right angles with the side of the head are more taboo than ever. They offer wind resistance and hear too much. Noses are built wrong, as usual; "bay windows" must be abolished. Those wide-brimmed hats for women must go. Science says so, and so do we--they hide the ladies so completely a man is always in "danger" of speaking to the wrong party. "Balloon" pants for men may be stylish, but we hope the professors will take care of them too. The weather is too hot to do such extensive thinking as this requires--which brings a final thought. In the name of science, or even in the spirit that says "Be kind to animals," won't somebody do something about the necessity to wear coats and vests when the mercury sneers from the 100 spot? FRANCE FAILS AGAIN rr\W fact that France will owe the United States an- ·^ other war debt installment of $59,000,218 on June 15 means little to the present Paris ministry. The French do not intend to pay and insist that the war debt situation "is more confused than ever." The longer France defaults, the simpler becomes France's stubbornness. Thus the fourth war debt default from France will be registered and default becomes a deadlock. France still owes the United States $3,960,772,238, and isn't the least interested in paying. France is perfectly capable of continuing war debt payments, but refuses to consider them. M. Herriot, who heroically fought for France's honor against a default, was thrown out of office. Since then no French statesman has arisen to champion payment. The United States saved France from alJ too evident defeat in 1917. Now Fran.ce refuses to recognize not alone its monetary but also its moral obligations to pay the cost. If France couldn't pay, the situation would be different; but France is the world's second richest gold power today. Some day France may well wish that she had not welshed on her obligations to America.

PATTERSON'S WHISKERS Marslmlltoun Times-Republican: The Mason City Globe-Gazette reviews the record of George E. Patterson as a republican conceding that Mr. Patterson is acting like a genuine republican in the last session when he voted republican consistently. Recalling the former and quiet recent period when he "wore the garb of the radical" the Mason City Globe-Gazette is more or less confused as to whether the candidate for the lieutenancy is back home to stay or wearing false whiskers to conservative deception. Under present and with recollection of past circumstance it is by way of a fair question Mr. Patterson could probably assist his campaign by plain talk to the voters. Of course his record in the governor's "special" is open and a marked change appears as to his views on income taxation. In the elder record he appears as first friend of Turner. In 1934 he refuses or fails to hitch his wagon to the Turner star. Or such is the appearance. . If Patterson shall be nominated and if he can bring to his candidacy the real republicans after nomination there isn't much doubt that he would beat Kraschel-in event of Kraschel's nomination--good and plenty. It begins daily to look more to nominations of Colflesh and the prospect that Colflesh would beat Herring grows brighter. If Mr. Patterson's republican whiskers are an actual, grown from republican hair follicles the two would make an excellent ticket. There are hopeful present indications of a turning back to father's house of those who went prodigaling in 1932. Things haven't been up to tie advance advertising of the immigration agents who promoted the rush for that far country. There were husks and draff plenty but the milk and honey all stayed in the master's nuarters and only the immediate house servants enjoyed the leftovers from the regular household banquets. As the prodigals come drifting back they should be welcomed home and given the run of the family table. But when the rings and the robes are to be distributed and suggestions made of veal cutlets breaded some attention may be justified as to whether they have come home to stay and help on the farm where the elder brothers have been humping themselves to keep things going. Which is probably the thought the G.-G. has in mind when it takes a tweak at Mr. Patterson's whiskers.

NEW THEORY FOR SKIN ILLS A RETURNING delegate from the Pan-American Medical congress has brought some interesting reports of new developments. The Pan-American Medical congress, incidentally, is one of the medical profession's contributions to better understanding between the countries of North and South America. It usually meets in South America, with a delegation of important and famous physicians from the United States, and discusses problems which are of interest to the people of both continents. A CLERGYMAN'S VIEW OF WAR GARNER, May 11.--I heartily agree with the editorial May 3, under the headline, "Clergy Consensus," especially the closing words: "We are strengthened anew in the opinion that our good clergymen are at their best when they stick to the job for which they are trained and hired, ministering to the spiritual life of man." It is not for us clergy to advise the government concerning armaments, navies, weapons 'of defense and offense, any more than it is the duty of a clergy without medical training to advise an experienced surgeon what operations he is to perform and how he is to perform them. An editor of a public press has a clear vision of the clergy's duty while some 13,000 clergy do not know the a b c of Scripture. May a Christian conscientiously engage in war? Not only is that question to be answered in the affirmative, but we add that it is a Christian's duty to engage in war when his government requires it. To refuse military service is to disobey God's will. The Christian owes a double allegiance, as is clear, from the Savior's statement: "Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto God the things that are God's." We owe God unreserved obedience. We owe the state obedience as long as nothing contrary to God's Word is required; for the Bible directs: "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers For there is no power but of God--Whosoever resist- eth the power resisteth the ordinance of God." Again, of the government it is said: "He beareth not the sword in vain." The protection of its homes, cities, liberties, is the proper province of the government. This may require the use of power, the army or navy. Just as law and order is maintained by armed police at home, so this world of sin, greed and treachery may make it necessary for a government to resort to war to defend property and liberty. Assisting in this defense of premises against an invader, actual or potential, who would kill families, destroy cities, seize property, is the duty of a Christian. It is a "rendering unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's." We Christians hate war. Therefore I say, tell of war's horrors! Paint the picture in vivid colors of reality! Don't retouch the photos, and may the contemplation of war's blackness and devastation strengthen the resolve to main tain.'peace! But ;f war comes (may God prevent it!) and our country is attacked, its rights invaded, then let the Christian "render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's." H. R. WREDE. ANOTHER VIEW OP THE QUESTION MASON CITY, May 11.--Reference was made a few days ago in your paper to a Des Moin.es minister connected with the Congregational church, regarding his recent sermon on war and peace. His ideas evidently coincide with Richard Cobdin. Listen to what Cobdin wrote in 1843: "In the close council of every king, or president, or prince, should be a man of affairs whose life is devoted to commerce and labor, and the needs and requirements of peace. His work is of far grea*er moment than that of men of war. Battleships ever form a suggestion for their use, and as long as we have armies, jnen will kill, fight and destroy. Soldiers who do not want to fight are not of this earth. Prepare for war and war will come. When government gives to the art of peace the same thought and attention that it gives to the art of war, we will have peace on earth and good will among men." I have been fortunate enough, in the past six montlis to have heard the Rev. Stoddard Lane five or six times and I would suggest you drive to Des Moines some Sunday and attend his church service. It will be well worth your while. Very truly yours. ' R. W. MELLEM. The story which, siruck me most forcibly was the report of investigations on the familiar and common subject of chafed skin, which while commoner in the summer, may occur at any time. It ia that sort of red and disagreeable eruption which occurs at points such as under the Dr. Clendenlnr arms, under the breasts in women, and frequently between the toes and the thighs. Up to the present time it has generally been supposed" that this was an irritation due to excessive perspiration, and the irritation of the perspiration on the sensitive skin. But the ingenious physician who investigated it reports that he selected specimens of perspiration from different parts of the body. He found that in the positions where such eruptions occur the perspiration is liable to contain more sugar than ordinary perspiration. All perspiration contains a very slight amount of sugar, and in those people who have active diabetes it becomes a little more than a. trace. It is interesting to note that eruptions of this kind are particularly likely to occur in diabetic patients. The point about the increase in the sugar in the perspiration in these places 1 is that it attracts yeast, which is present everywhere in the air, and the eruption itself is due to the invasion of the skin with the yeast or yeastlike organism. Of course, the fact that perspiration is usually held in place by the folds of the skin causes this to furnish a stable culture medium for the yeast. The treatment under these circumstances is 'entirely different from that which we have been employing. The ordinary treatment for chafed skin is to powder the part and keep it dry and exposed to air for a while. This has only been fairly satisfactory, but now with the use of such a substance as phenylmercuric nitrate, which has great power to kill off the organisms that grow on sugar, it is obvious that that is the proper treatment. Thirty Years Ago--Company A is steadily practicing for the state shoot which will be held in Cedar Rapids on June 6-13, under the auspices of the Iowa Rifle association. The local company is entitled to four men at this meet. This spring is a money-saver for the track department of the railroads. Washouts were numerous last spring, but none have occurred this year. The Rev. Mr. Coon, pastor of the Baptist church at Osage, has resigned his position and will take charge of the work at Waverly. Mr. Coon is a native of Mitchell county, educated, and has done good work there. . Mrs. Fred Stoltenburg, the woman who was so seriously injured in the runaway accident, is resting easily this afternoon. The Southwest Teachers' association meeting was held this afternoon, at Swaledale. The discussion was entirely informal and waa held in the form of a round Be this then your task if task it shall be, To force this proud world to do homage to me.

YOUR MOTHER. __o-have observed in following Iowa high school baseball this spring that almost without exception the strongest teams are in communities where during the summer there is an American Lei glon junior baseball program. They go hand in hand, each helping the other. I have confidence too that together they constitute an excellent incubator for big league material of the future. --o-used to be numbered among those who felt that a preacher has a "pretty soft job." I'm not any more. My name was scratched off the list when I began considering just a few of the demands upon him. In the first place, there are some very definite requirements with respect to personality and training. The successful preacher must be at once a scholar and a diplomat. He must know not only his Bible and his theology but he must know his human nature. It isn't a case of knowing one or the other; he must know both. Consider just this one phase of a preacher's assignment--the preparation of 52 thought-provoking and spirit-stimulating sermons a year. Digging up the material and putting it in shape is one part of this job; table discussions. Samuel Hoyt and daughter, Delia, leave tonight for a visit to Chicago, where they will attend to business matters. QUESTIONS FROM READERS M. W.: "Is it possible that a man's finger prints can be changed by surgery?" Answer: The whorls on the ends of the fingers can be destroyed, but they cannot be replaced by other whorls, although the scars would disguise the finger print. Why don't you use gloves? * · · G. S.: "Do you believe it is safe to bathe one's eyes j daily with boracic acid?" Answer: Yes, safe and beneficial. I Twenty Years Ago-Manufacturers and their representatives from al sections of the middle west are here today for conferences which precede the formal opening of the twelfth annual convention of the Iowa State Manufacturers' association tomorrow. Uniforms for the Mason City baseball team have been received from the manufacturer and are now on display. The first game of the season will be at Fort Dodge May 27. The Mason City Driving club will hold a meeting tonight at the K. P. hall. Because he did not drop the weight to tether Ms horse, when, he stopped to enter a building, Driver Kellogg of one of the laundries was called before the mayor today and reprimanded. Mrs. Sam Crawford returned from Rochester, Minn., where she has been visiting her husband for the past week. Mrs. W. L. Ashton of Sioux Falls, S. Dak., is in the city as the guest of Mrs. E. V. Franke. Mrs. Woodruff of Charles City is visiting with friends in the city for a short tims. Ten Years Ago-Miss Martha Pattie was elected national vice- president of the Iowa Business and Professional Women's club at its meeting in Waterloo yesterday. Prof. Bohumil Shlmek of Iowa City, head of the botany repartment of the University of Iowa, will address members of the Izaak Walton league in the city the latter part of May. Albert Lea won its opening league game yesterday, downing the local baseball club 3 to 1 in the Minnesota city. Mason City won the eighteenth annual Boone Valley track and filed meet, held at Roosevelt stadium Saturday afternoon. Four new records were established. Dr. W. R. Clack will read a paper before the American Dental association at Dallas, Tex., this year. Chester Brown has returned from a visit with relatives in Decorah and Cresco. Edith Cretsinger has left for Albert Lea where she will visit with her folks for a short time. Vagrant Thoughts By LOU MALLOKY LUKE, Hampton.

That would frighten me, I confess. But the real genius of the successful pastor is exercised outside the pulpit, in the spiritual ministra tions to the individual parishioners and in a combined spiritual and practical leadership for the parish or congregation as a whole. It consists of compromising on the nonessentials but holding fast on the essentials, inspiring an adequate financial support ot church, making religion appear as something vital and eternal. I am not saying that all the preachers of this community fill the bill as I've outlined It here. But 1 verily believe that we have our fair quota of ministers possessed of what it takes to make the church a dynamic influence. -- o-can't surprcsa a smile when 1 hear the solemn suggestion that our climate is changing. We hear this every time we have a. couple dry summers in succession, or a couple winters that are a departure from normal as to temperature or precipitation. The truth is that climatic "tendencies" aren't to be noted in the period of the longest lifetime. Even the time which has elapsed since the dawn of recorded history is but a second in the geological age in which we live. Last year -saw a marked del'i- :iency in precipitation -- about l ncheg under the 30 inches of mois- ure which has been averaged since he beginning of meteoroligical ob- ervations in North Iowa. Thus far n 1934, there is an even greater de- iciency. But there have been a number of rears in contemporary times when hat average was exceeded.
