Fellow newspaper men about the state enjoyed a grin last week at the expense of veteran Editor W. F. Hunter, of the Webster City Freeman. For some 80-odd years the Freeman's editorial columns have been 12 ems_wide—news width—but the other day the : reernan's managing editor and the back snop conspired to make them 16 ems wide— tr.e same as these columns. And so, at last "-is old man upstairs" went modern unwit- Duty of Americans in a Political Year cemocratic state cen- '.-=•= kiy political letters ny editors do not pub- hey are prejudicially The Webster City Freeman thinks the states ought to retire from the income tax field now that the federal income tax rate nas been given such a boost.

But that looks like a Nt of faulty reasoning. With used tires going bust at j unexpected moments, why wouldn't it work the other way around? Gosh, so many complications in war!

OSWALD. Some day, probably after I retire from active business but before I am regelated to tee wheel-chair fraternity, I hope to write I a tittle book on the country merchant, and" the volume, if it ever sees the light, will likely include a chapter on market trips, since these are as important to a merchant's welfare as water to a duck. A fish doesn't taste any belter because you know how, when, or where it was caught, and a feminine customer probably wouldn't enjoy her new coat, suit, or dress ? any more if she knew just how the store. that sold it to her acquired it But because • a trip to market is about as mysterious to j the average woman as a trek through the j Jungles of darkest Africa, I make bold to j shed a ray of light on this intriguing adven-1 Sure. (Yes, the men may read this, too, if they are interested. I once took the editor of a local newspaper to market, and he lived to tell wife and children about his experiences—at least, some of them.) To clarify the discussion at the ootset and confine it to definite boundaries (which is difficult, since it applies to the actions of large groups of human beings always unde- pendabie), I will speak specifically of semiannual market trips to Chicago in preparation for the spring and fall ready-to-wear seasons. This is in February and August, when the weather is either frigid from icy blasts off Lake Michigan or humid in the dying dog-days of summer. But what are atmospheric conditions to a retail merchant accustomed to perils of vaster magnitude?— income taxes, sales taxes, excise taxes, social security taxes, rising costs and markdowns, etc., etc. But in order that there may be no misunderstandings about location, Is add that similar gatherings are held almost: simultaneously in other fashion centers all; over the United States — Los Angeles to | Boston. Minneapolis to Dallas, north, south,' east, west, and in between. j I have never attended the New York mar- f ket. but I know that great metropolis, the ;' very center of the ready-to-wear industry j in the U. S. A., presents what might bei called a "continuous performance." Its very size precludes catering district or area, and Uitt, aspects 6f d» Return w could be written about ** Grid's greatest style center, we shall for of local interest and clariflcaUon, i discussion to the Windy City. will always attract a steady stream of metropolitan larger stores in eastern and far-western cl- ties during all 12 months of the year by staging "openings," but Chicago is the logical source of supply for a vast army of mid-western merchants who have neither the means nor the outlet to tap the New York fashion reservoir. /For Chicago has been rightly named the Great Central Market, and the Morrison hotel has been, at least for several decades, the center of market-week activities. Though permanent showrooms are maintained by both Chicago manufacturers and representatives of east- em and western lines of ladies' ready-to- wear in the wholesale district, the Morrison is the real nerve-center of excitement and confusion during the two weeks about which I am going to write. There are cotton dress displays at the Palmer House, too, and New York millinery showings at the Congress, eastern resident buyers' "shows" at the LaSalle and the Sherman; but, I repeat, the real "heart" of the semi-annual market in Chicago is the Morrison. Here, on ten floors of one wing, are gathered more than 200 highly specialized lines of women's -.misses', and junior coats, suits, skirts, blouses, dresses, lingerie, children's apparel, and all accessories necessary to supply every want of milady. In the lobby, during Market Week, on a large bulletin board, are listed the manufacturers, with the names of salesmen in charge of displays and the rooms in which the offerings may be seen; and around this board, like a giant beehive, at all hours of day and night are clustered merchants and salesmen engaged in a sort of "spider-and- fty" game, the merchant warily on the defensive, the salesmen pushing sales to the last ounce of energy. This lobby, in fact, is a, great melting pot of merchants and salesmen, a busy, noisy, met,. 1 crowded stamping gr ound In latest fashions Merchant meets merchant" angues salesman, and n,' nations gather to discuss ject, ready-to-wear. s 0 occasion, a reunion on a" unlike anything else in a few years of market- know almost the entire For purposes of furth must begin our little ducing this cast of chara^t way—the buyers and a known, in this account, as salesmen.

Nortnwood Anchor—The railroads an- inounce an increased freight rate which means that such increase will have to be addea to the price of goods bought by you and me and everybody else who buys goods The reason of the increase is because employees recently were granted an increase in wages. How easily cause and effect may oe traced in this and similar cases. It aU adds up to the simple fact that the buying public is always the victim of strikes. FROM PRIVATE Dwaine Lighter, at McClellan Field, Calif., comes the following Christmas poem—an army version of an old favorite. It may be a little late, but here it is. Christmas Eve in the Barracks, 'Twas the night before Christmas, but the men were all here, For 'twas rumored that the Japs might be somewhere near. The stockings were hung by the windows with care In hopes that the odor would take to the a:'r. When all of a sudden there arose such a shout— We all knew it was just another blackout. We knew what it was with no need to ask, So we fumble in the dark to find our gas mask. | My buddy's still sleeping so snug in his bed, j But I finally arouse him with a rap on the i head. The "sarge" blows his whistle like a gargling lark 5 While we stumble over each other here in the dark. We fall out the door into the dreary night And search the sky for any planes in sight, We huddle 'round to hear that latest joke, V-ismng it was permissable to light up a smoke. The waiting in the dark gets very monotonous. But do we complain? Oh no, not us! We wait for the signal to sound "all clear" But we wait in vain for none do we hear ' At last the news, we'll come to no harm— H turns out to be'a false alarm. We go back to the barracks and crawl into bed While visions of home dance through our head. We dream of our folks and our friends back home, And hope that their spirits are as good as our own; We are doing this job for our nation's defense, Because a few crazy people are lacking in sense. But when peace reigns once more, brother you can tell, We sure ground that Axis all to Hell! PVT. DWAINE LIGHTER. AND MAY next Christmas and all to come find all American boys at home again is the wish of _ D E * Relating that on an average; there is a cancer death every! two and a half hours in Iowa, j Or. Edmund G. Zimmerer, of the! state health department, says that with the extension of selective service to include the older age groups this disease takes its place as one of the "more formidable enemies of national defense." ' The doctor, who is the department's cancer control director, added that Iowa's cancer death rate is far above the national average, and "we have much to do in his state to keep this disease from cutting deep holes into military and civilian action." The doctor stated that 75 per cent of the cancer victims are over 30 years of age and that most of these are beyond 40. Regular physical examination, he said, would reveal much of the cancer in this age group before it is too late to do something about it In Iowa the cancer rate has exceeded the national average ev- ery son < rate, 1937, shows 131.4 per 100,000 population in Iowa that year, contrasted with 112 for the same population in the na-' tion. j A total of 3,749 deaths from this disease in 1940 gave Iowa ai rate of 137 deaths per 100,000 population that year. Iowa's can-i cer rate ranks about 15th in the 1 country. "Cancer can be cured," Doctor Zimmerer said, "but treatment must be started early. The trouble with this disease is that it begins slowly and insidiously, without pain, and the victim oftentimes does not realize that anything is wrong till the disease has reached an advanced stage. "During the course of a regular physical examination, however, evidences of cancer may be found early enough to do some pood, and more than ever this is important now because any drain on manpower is injurious to our effort" i Advance 'Linebook' Rates Bouquet— Temptation Assails Another Editor— [The Oakland Acorn.] We turn our attention to a [D.

The Morleys saw the rise and fall of the cattle baron, and following his demise the advent of the "tourists." Messages were carried long and short distances by the simple method of "putting a kid on a horse." Little fuss was made over hardships or tragedy; mostly things were accepted for what they were.
