A. 1H32, as added thereto by Chapter 154, 1933 Session Laws of Idaho THE NEW PIONEERS At the Inventors' fashion show in St. Louis, part of the "Modern Pioneers" celebration, manikins paraded in costumes made of chemical fabrics. There were skirts and sweaters, tailored suits, swishing evening gowns and bathing suits made not of wool, cotton, linen or silk, but of ' such original . materials as mothballs, vinegar, coal and milk. It sounds queer, but is all in the day's work of the Industrial chemist. And if he has already managed to create so many useful and beautiful products from beginnings apparently so unrelated to the garments the manikins wore, there would seem to be no limit to future possibilities. The research chemists are not only adding to the number of materials available for many purposes. They are also doing things mostly good to agriculture, Industry and trade, which may solve a few problems and create others. It all helps to make life interesting and proves that the discovery, exploration and pioneering of this world are not yet finished, ROBIN HOOD IN DOWNING STREET Englishmen, with all their seeming stodgi-ness, are incurably romantic. Look at that young Robin Hood, for instance, who dressed himself in Lincoln green and took his yew. bow and strode cheerfully into Downing Street and shot a steel-tipped arrow through the window of Prime Minister Chamberlain. He narrowly missed a cabinet member too. i And why did he do it? He was very cheerful about explaining. "He didn't want to kill ; anybody. He was a loyal Briton, Just about to go to France with the army and fight Hitler. ; It was merely a propaganda stunt. He wanted to advertise the Social Credit scheme launched in Alberta, Canada, by the premier. The idea was to get Britain out of "debt so as to conduct the war with less handicap. And what did the London police and the British government do? Well, they seem to be just about as unpredictable and informal as the young bowman. They took the incident in the same spirit as the culprit did, and he'll be off to fight Hitler perhaps with his bow and arrow. Now, just suppose that had happened in Wilhelmstrasse, Berlin! KEEPING FOOD AT HOME l Packages labeled "gift" and "sample" have been going in great numbers into Germany from the neighboring neutral countries. They have carried foodstuffs and other commodities which, as commercial goods, would have been required to pay heavy duty or suffer government control.' Switzerland's border officials discovered recently that large quantities of shoes were being sent to Germany in that way. Left shoes were going in singly as samples .to certain addresses, to be assembled later with right shoes sent separately and sometimes even to different addresses. Now the government of the Netherlands announces severe restrictions on the thousands of packages of foodstuffs which have been crossing the border regularly as gifts for German destinations. The government acts not to deprive hungry Germans of food but to' 'conserve home stocks. Sea warfare and throttled, trade are making it almost as hard for non-belligerent as for belligerent countries to feed themselves. SELFISH POEM Maybe we shouldn't expect poets to be logical. But here's a little poem that certainly ties an ordinary mind into knots. An American poet named Arthur Dillon has just published volume of verses including this one: "I write my songs to please myself, For a lone audience of one; And if J write for love, not pelf, I know my work's unselfishly done." Now what could be more selfish than for a poet to write poems just for himself. .and brag about it? But he redeems himself with another poem, which if it isn't very poetical is sensible, anyway: "End beggars and the "dole, Get folks out of a hole, - Give them useful labor; Destroy the gun and saber Which lessen their morale And help the criminal." Before the WorldWar Germany, with much less population, had extensive colonies and a great and expanding world trade, but lost them in reaching for more. Probably most Germans today would be satisfied if they possessed now what they had then. They had not only material wealth and profitable business, but world-wide respect and admiration. What they lost by war and its penalties, plus political collapse, Hitler is now trying to regain for them by war and diplomacy that recognizes no moral limitations. , Meanwhile population has grown, newly crowding the German barfiers. But Hitler demands a still higher birthrate, and in addition annexes more Germans, even bringing into the narrow limits of the Reich many who have lived abroad for centuries. All this obviously makes his and Germany's problem harder. But Hitler demands' more European territory as a natural right, because Germans are a "superior people." And what are the displaced neighbors to do then? Other Points of View ) "LEBENSRAUM" The Nazis keep harping on their need of 'living space," and they do need more room. The Germans are so jammed together In the middle of Europe,, with inadequate natural resources, that they can hardly make a living; But the record is strangely contradictory. ARIZONA INDIAN'S BOW TO HITLER Chalk up another victory for the Nazis, this time on American soil. Four Arizona Indian tribes have capitulated to Hitler, bowed the knee and given up their ancient symbol, the swastika, because, their resolution states, the Nazis have descrated it. This is a sad precedents it Is followed, the orient will have to do some surrendering, too, and there will be a purge of museums everywhere; Tor long before Hitler was heard of, Buddhists were using the symbol in their shrines, Persians were weaving it into rugs, Chinese were putting it on porcelain, Tibetans were tattooing it on the;r persons, Japanese were hewing it on statutes and the Jains of India were making the sign of the swastika as they went to prayers. The Nazis' claim to the symbol Is a most belated one. The Trojans beat them to it by some 39 centuries. The Hittites used the swastika, and it appears on King Midas' tomb. It is found in Pompcilan wall paintings, and in primitive Swiss lake dwellings. Europe's bronze age men knew it well, and so did t(he American mound builders. Also the Etruscans, the TDoneTcarving tribes of Belgium, -the Scandinavian bronze workers and Central America's aborigines. ;The Trojans and Hittites are gone; the Etruscans and mound builders have perished. They cannot dispute Hitler's appropriation of their symbol, and the Arizona Indians have abjectly yielded. This may be good business, so far as the sale of rugs and pottery is concerned, but it would have been a delight to see the Navajos, Apaches, Hopis and Papagos don war paint, brandish their tomahawks and demand that Hitler and his goose-steppers give up the emblem. What is the noble red man coming to, that he tolerates both the theft and the perversion of his ancient friendship symbol? St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "FIGHTING CONTINUES" A news dispatch from Helsinki last night said: "Fighting continues." That was all. But it would be difficult to imagine any two words more meaningful in their application to the heroic defense of Finland against Russia. The Mannerheim line may have been broken, Viipurl may be in ruins, the Nautsi area may be devastated, the Koivisto fortifications may have been captured, the battle on the Karelian front may be going in favor of the Red invaders, yet the Soviets have not achieved the victory which the dictator - Stalin requires. Indeed, it now may be wondered if the Bolshevik czar ever can attain his objective in Finland. Great Britain and Fiance realize at least, tardily perhaps, but not altogether too late, that Russia is their enemy. A Polish army is said to be moving to the aid of the courageous Finns. Swedish volunteers are crossing the Gulf of Bothnia in a steady stream. Norway and Denmark understand that their existence is threatened by Soviet success. - Meanwhile, the alliance with Russia is far from popular in Germany. It was by promising to protect the reiclv against the peril of militant communism that the Nazi party rose to power, and Hitler's less fanatical followers have not forgotten his fulmlna-tions against the Muscovite Marxists and their policies of mischief. In Turkey also there is growing sentiment for a drive upon the Soviets by the way of the Ukraine. Only yesterday Italy announced that any activity by Stalin in the Balkans would be resisted. It almost inevitably will b the verdict of history that Russia has suffered a tremendous loss of prestige during the past six months first, because of the Bolshevik "deal" with the Nazis; second, because of the failure of the Soviet "blitzkrieg" in Finland, The reputation of Stalin, notorious before August, 1939, now is damaged beyond all hope of repair; the credit of his army has been wrecked by its failure to make an efficient showing in the field. Even if the Finns eventually are conquered, the price paid by their foes will have been too high. But the democratic nations of the world ought not to permit Russia to claim any sort of victory over Finland. The people of that valiant little state have held the line for civilization, as a distinguished Englishman rightly has said. It is the duty of those nations still free to support their struggle against barbarism. "Fighting continues" by grace of God, and it will be the earnest prayer of millions of Americans that it may not cease until the Finns have been reinforced effectively enough to guarantee the survival of their independence-and the liberty which they have earned by sacrifice unparalleled in current times. Washington Star. POTENTIAL MARKET Advantages that would come to American farmers if the problem of domestic underconsumption could be solved were shown clearly by Milo Perkins, head of the Federal Surplus Commodities corporation, in his address in Des Moines. With 68 per cent of American families living on an average of $69 a month, he asserted that meeting of the unsatisfied wants of two-thirds of the country's population would make the greatest new market that ever has loomed before businessmen and farmers. Export crops have been especially hard hit, he recounted, by dislocations in our foreign trade that trace back to more than two decades ago, when we changed from a debtor to a creditor nation and when we plowed UP forty million acres of grass land to help win the war. When the World war armies were demolished, American farmers lost their market for these excess crops, since every major nation was trying to sell as much as possible abroad and buy as little as possible from other countries. But big yields of farm crops could be disposed of at home if all Americans could buy all they need to eat and wear. The food-stamp and cotton-stamp plans now undertaken by Mr. Perkins' organization represent an attack on this problem, but the stamp plans are only emergency measures at best and will affect, at the consumption end, only those families who are on reliel rolls. The underconsumption problem is too big to be solved by any single measure, but better understanding of its importance will be-in the ultimate interest of both farmers and other producers and those now pinched by subnormal standards of living. Dallas News. Breakfast Food PROOF A lady residing to a suburb became interested in a gang of workmen who were making some street repairs in front of her house. She halted to watch the operation. , "Which one is the foreman?" she asked. "I am," stated a broad-shouldered Irishman with a proud smile." ' "Really, are you?" "Am I?" he asked. "I'll prove it to ye, ma'am." He glanced about, singling out the nearest workman. "Du-gan," he barked, "ye're fired!" Woman Traveler: "Portah. Portah (she's English), come here at once . . . I've lost my luggage." Porter: "Then, for what wad ye be wanting a porter?" Setting an Example NEW YORK WHIRLIGIG By Richard Waldo and Gabriel Vogliottl MISSION. Another state de partment man Is about to sail for Berlin, in this case to correct errati of U. S. businessmen. As reported in this space in October, there are a number of cargoes of American owned goods interned by the Bri tish blockade in neutral European ports. The German exports we're shipped under contracts made in August and September. The allies have not ruled on their status because of ambiguity over the date of completion. U. S. importers have organized a committee and have raided the state department for a legal expert, Burt L. Hunt, who resigned to argue the case of the American owners before British authorities. When a declaration of war seem ed a matter of days, the . word spread in New York business circles that the British would blockade only those goods paid for after such declaration. Passage would be permitted through the blockade for goods representing a completed contract. But payment after a specified date would make the materials contraband. The rumor was substantiated by semi-official London assurances that this procedure would probably be followed. There, resulted a race to get telegraphic drafts into the hands of the German manufacturers before the deadline. For five months the local im porters have been unable to satisfy the British that these transactions took place as represented. But the oddest angle is that the troubled traders know they will get better results from a competent private representative than by Invoking state department help officially. In business circles a protest through state channels is the equivalent of surrendering a cause. National Whirligig News Behind The News WASHINGTON By Ray Tucker ACUTE.- Even President Roosevelt's hero worshipers on Capitol Hill are beginning to grumble over his concealment of his 1940 plans. Democratic house members in particular figure that he is forcing them out on a shaky political limb. Here is their extremely practical dilemma: If they declare for a third term, and he eventually renounces such a break with tradition, they will be discredited by their own president. They will become "setups" for opponents in a primary or in the election. On the other hand, if they denounce the third-term scheme on principle, and Mr. Roosevelt should go through with it, they will get in bad with the White House and with those constituents who want more of Mr. Roosevelt. The question has become painfully acute because of Republican victories in Ohio's two special elections and Senator Donahey's decision not to brave the ballot box once more. Only a 6 per cent shift in the 1938 vote will drive at least sixty Democratic house members into retirement, and the third-term factor could easily account for such a change in their status and salary. WHEELER. Senate progressives are growing increasingly restless over F. D. RVs policies, especially his strong pro-ally sentiment. With the possible exception of George W. Norris, it is doubtful if any of his 1932 and 1936 liberal allies would support him if he runs again. It is a constderation which may deeply affect his final decision. Hiram Johnson of California has apparently made peW with the G. O. P. in his state even the Hooverites and will seek reelection as a tamer Republican., He detests the administration's foreign program. Young Bob LaFollctte complains bitterly about F. D.R.'s seeming indifference -towards domestic problems. He must . tread warily and court Republican conservatives if he is to squeeze through next fall. Even Mr. Norris, despite his devotion to the president, is extremely suspicious of the D. of J.'s crackdown on alleged radicals. Attorney General Jackson's defense of the F. B. I.'s Detroit arrests has riled him to the point where he will undoubtedly press .his demand for a senate investigation. . . ,- This discontent among the progressives enhances Senator Burton K. Wheeler's chance of a place on the national ticket. He is the one Democratic possibility whom most of them would back or at least not oppose actively. PREFERENCE. Secretary Ickes' application of conservation policies to the vast salmon fishing grounds off Alaska has provoked loud squawks up and down the Pacific coast. It js one of his many minor headaches. It is also a fish mystery which none of Harold's Sherlock Holmes scientists can solve. Every five years, it seems, the catch at Bristol Bay the world's greatest red salmon fishery drops from 50 to 80 per cent. Nobody knows exactly why, but it happens; the fish either don't show up or don't bite. Since 1940 is a year for the disappearing fish ,act, Mr. Ickes has restricted all operations drastically. H? nas re- STOCK Perhaps one of the best ways to gain a conception of the importance of cattle raising to the Magic Valley is to visit a sales ring in Twin Falls on auction day when a steady stream of cattle pours through the gates to be sold. A thousand or more handled In this way in a day-represent only a hint of what this region is able to produce in the way of top livestock. PASTIME Next to making unintelligible marks on paper during telephone conversations, probably one of the most common habits of busy Americans is that of twiddling with pencils. N. E. happened to be sitting near an office recently so that only the hand of an executive, was discernible through the partly opened door. The gyrations of the pencil which he held in his hand would have done justice to a Mexican jumping bean as he turned it end for end, tapped it against the table, rolled it between his fingers and did countless other things of which he was doubtless unaware. LOYALTY i Yes, the press is a great Institution. Not only does it play a vital role in a democracy by providing citfeens with information upon affairs of their country, but it also creates a strong feeling of brotherhood among those engaged in newspaper work. Consider Twin Falls, for example whenever a member of the journalistic profession receives a ticket for overparking the subsequent re port upon those who lay down their hard-earned dollars at tne police station does , not carry his name near the bottom of the list. Neither is It buried in the middle. Instead, the reporter obtaining the list of names picks out the name of the fel low journalist and places it high upon the list (usually at the first). Such are the bonds welded by the press. r 1 SURE SIGN Flowers may bloom and birds may sing, but Night Editor will still hesitate before, predicting that spring Is really on the way. However, all doubts as to approach of the season were swept away yesterday when N. E. entered the Twin Falls post- office to hear shrill cheeping from a box of baby chicks being shipped by a local hatchery. This Is a sure sign of approach of springtime, and shipments of the tiny balls of fluff will continue and grow in volume during me pre' summer months. ONE I'P ON TELEVISION Here's a startling press dispatch sent out from Hollywood: "Film Actor Ray Milland heard the gurgling of a baby bom to his wife over the telephone ... duced the number of boats, traps and fishermen, and imposed closed seasons at several places. He has also ordered that prefer ence be given to inhabitants of Alaska as against rivals from the United States proper. That requirement has sparked protests from Pacific coast interests. Members of C. I.O. unions and the "economic royalists" whom Mr. Ickes aches to denounce are fighting side by side ship by ship against the crusader for off-shore conservation. LOBBYISTS. Several distinguish ed cabinet and sub-cabinet members will pay a fine and go to Jr1 if Attorney General Jackson decides to enforce the 1919, act against lob bying by the executive branches of the government. The list would In clude Secretaries Hull, Ickes, Wal lace, Woodring and Edison and their first-flight subordinates. It would number enough army and navy marine officers to form a prison bri gade. Every department lobbies for or against bills directing its interests Frequently its specialists write the measures, the reports and the speeches delivered on house and senate floors.. They have men def-nitely assigned to liaison work with house or senate committees or in dividual members. They extend spe cial favors tocongressmen who re turn the compliment. At the pres ent moment, for instance, the White House is openly lobbying to sidetrack the Walter-Logan bill de signed to curb the federal commis sars. Ironically, Capitol Hill members encourage these illegal activities.' Few legislators can draft a complicated measure or write a speech on its behalf. So they call on the ex perts the executive lobbyists. DEFT. Representative John J. Dempsey of New Mexico recently staged such an adroit parliamentary stunt that it staggered House Speaker Bankhead. Despite the de mand for economy, the man from banta Fe slipped through a $350,000 bill for nine bridges across the Rio Grande by "unanimous consent. First Mr. Dempsey had to obtain ha favorable report from the house foreign affairs committee a diffi cult task. Then he had to wring a rule permitting chamber considera tion from the rules committee, of which he is a popular member. It was this bit of strategy which sty mied fhe opposition. For if anybody any one member had opposed passage by unanimous consent, Mr. Dempsey could have forced a long debate by invoking the rule for regular action. Next he called up his bill at a late hour on Friday after noon, when scores of members were anxious to leave Washington for the week-end. When several congressmen, notably Ham Fish, grumbled over such nasty procedure on a bill appropri' ating so much money, Jack warned: "if you object, I'll bring it up under the rule for regular debate and keep you here all night." After consult ing the clock and the railroad time table. Ham yielded and the bill romped through without objection. SCARE Members of the Twin' Falls sher iff's force thought for awhile the other day that the joke was ;'on them.

The National Press club recently staged the healthiest spectacle this capital or any cap ital-has witnessed in years. Ten presidential candidates Democrats and Republicans delivered speeches on "Why I Should party in question, had no checking account there. The momentary concern passed, however, when it was found that the apparent lack of funds resulted from a technicality in records and all turned out welL world rulers in orations that set a high mailt for good-natured democratic banter. As several SDeakers Attorney General Jackson, Tom Dewey. Burt Wheeler, Norman Thomas remanc U. S. Importers Ask British To Free Interned Cargoes 6 MORE. A recent Whirligig story outlined the steps by which an esti mated half billion dollars of German refugee money found Its way unintentionally Into Canadian securities. Bankers were aole to trace the hegira from Germany in to anonymous trust accounts in banks of small neighboring neu trals, and then by successive transfers into Canada where the war caught up with It and barred with drawal. Further mention is in order be cause of the variety of disclaimers and their sources. German finan cial circles used tne iacts for a double play, first to confirm the exodus, and secondly to justify the drastic punishment meted out to traitors who sabotaged the reich's finances. On 'the other hand the Germans registered a boost for the efficiency of the Gestapo, with the claim that such transfers have long since been blocked. Refugee groups in turn challenged the amount of the transfer and sought to establish the fact that, with minor excep tions, all private fortunes were sue cessf ully confiscated by Berlin; The most recent commentary is a press dispatch from Ottawa, Presumably okayed by government censorship, it lists a half billion dollars as the amount of refugee investments in Canadian private enterprise, aside from securities. Even discounting the value of the statements as an understandable abverttsement for the attraction of Canadian business, the figure is accepted as accurate by New York banks. They were already acquainted with the mechanics of the securities investments. HOLDINGS. Hollanders are in clined to think Americans too hysterical over the chances of Japa nese occupation of the Dutch East Indies. Since nothing is certain in war,, they don't exclude the possibil ity that ToKyo could attempt to smash against the wealthy archipelago. But not so long as Franco-British diplomants have a hand in the East which they think will be a long time. The determining factor is that France and Britain together own 75 per cent of capitalized industry in the Dutch East Indies. Moreover, British industralists "in the islands need only have a Union Jack supplant the the Dutch flag to make British control formal. London policy in the East is an imperceptible retreat before the Japanese; its historic tendency is geographically from north to south. While 'retrenchment In China is costly, the British will concede the Japanese a sphere of hegemony on the mainland rather than in the southern islands. The trend of Anglican diplomacy, according to authoritative Hollanders, is to integrate holdings closest to Singapore. Holland has no alternative to sharing sovereignty unofficially with the only fleet which can defend the Indies. From a military standpoint the British, French and Dutch holdings are more defendable as a closely knit geographic alliance,, a fact which Tokyo recognizes under existing military conditions. TOKENS. Returning New Yorkers report that among average Londoners, the war is often referred to as the "bore war" and the "great word war." The appearance of German planes is taken as more of a curiosity than a danger. If an aerial dog fight develops people rush to vantage points for ring side seats. A little farther out from the coast, along the Thames estuary and other places where the Nazis have planted their magnetic mines, a veritable forest of masts sticks out of the water at low tide, marking vessels which found their end so short a distance from port. Much comment was caused by the conversation book distributed among the members of the British army in France for the day when they expect to occupy Germany again. It is full of soothing phrases: "fear nothing, our men don't loot"; "sorry to disturb you, j we don't touch women and chil-' dren"; "after the fight enemies must be friends"; "I love my pipe," and "I have a little wife at home," etc. etc. So fat casualties of the British forces in France have been very light. The six and a half . divisions have lost only fourteen dead. o QOurChildrenT SULKY CHILDREN A PROBLEM "If there's one thing above all others that I dislike in a child it is sulking. I won't have it. No child of mine is going to turn sulky on me the minute .his will Is crossed. He may just as well make up his mind to do as he is told. And no sulks. I've told him that a thousand times but he thinks it makes no difference. Well, he's going to learn differently. From now on he is going to be well punished every time I see a sign of it. He's in his room now and he's going to stay there." "What happened?" "What happened? The usual thing. You can't say No to him.
