After the Advance of March 9 was out the rest of last week was "Income Tax Week"— and how!—for the editor, consequently there was no time for the usual run of editorials. This is therefore "Guest Week" in these two columns—which will account for their superior quality! Such "weeks" are embarrassing in one particular, however. This is because of the wealth of editorials to choose from. This writer has always maintained that the editorial columns in many of the weekly newspapers of Iowa are as ably written and much closer to the common reader than the supposedly highbrow stuff in the dailies, and for that reason, the Advance, sticking to its class, almost never quotes daily newspaper editorials. With the foregoing explanation let us now go to it, but first let us introduce the writers. To this writer's notion W. F. Hunter, of the Webster City Freeman, is one of Iowa's most brilliant and interesting editorial writers—and he shows no lack of mental vigor at an age when his memory goes back almost to the time when Webster City was a jumping-off place for the first pioneers headed towards Algona. F. W. Beckman, of the Knoxville Journal, is an old and valued personal friend of this writer dating back to state university days of 50 years ago. He was once managing editor of the Des Moines Register & Leader, then for some years head of the Ames journalism faculty, and following that editor of Farmer's Wife, St. Paul, now merged with the Farm Journal, Philadelphia. Tom Purcell is the able and beloved editor of the Hampton Chronicle, a gentleman of the 'old school' who occupies somewhat the same niche in Iowa newspaperdom that William Allen White, of the Emporia, Kans., Gazette, occupies in the national field. An uncompromising republican, Mr. Purcell has for the last few years been a member of the state printing board by gubernatorial ap- jDointment. Wm. C. Jarnagin, of the Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune, is one of the leading Iowa publishers of weeklies, a man whom to know is to admire, a former Kiwanis governor, and once managing editor in its heydey of the now defunct Des Moines Capital. Tale of City Divided Against Itself By W. F. Hunter. A. F. Schrader has just returned from a five months stay in Texarkana, Arkansas, and Texas, and ha« some interesting tales to unfold. The city is part in Arkansas and part in Texas, the state line between them running through one of the streets. There are about 12,000 inhabitants on the Arkansas side and 17,000 on the Texas side. Mr. Schrader was there during the last election and went to some of the polling places to see how they held elections. He said most of the polling places are out of doors and the judges of election sit where they can see just how many of the voters vote. Mr. Schrader says the people do not get along very well with each other. For instance, a policeman on one side of the dividing street may get a salary of $60 a month while oh the other side the policeman may get twice as much. That, quite naturally, creates ill feeling. Mr. Schrader reports that the democrats of Texarkana are divided in their opinions of the New Deal, the old line democrats having little use for Roosevelt, and it is his opinion that many of them will vote the republican ticket in 1944 if the president is a candidate for a fourth term. Many would have voted for Willkie at the 1940 election had they considered him a good republican, but concluded that there was not much choice between the two presidential candidates. Mr. Schrader recounts a story told by one of the colored preachers of Texarkana. There is an aged Negress residing there whose son with his wife, lives in Chicago. The mother wrote to the son, asking him to bring his wife and come to live with her. The son wrote back declining the invitation and declaring, "I would rather live in jail in Chicago than live in Texarkana," as he could exercise rights in Chicago that were denied him in the south. Mr. Schrader says there are evidences of lots of poverty in the south, especially in Texarkana, and most of the people born in the city and vicinity never get very far away from their birthplaces. terial aid from America . . . Yet I have failed to find any real acknowledgment. I find no political motive in this. It is only an effort to create the impression with then- own people that they are pulling themselves through by their own bootstraps. . . The Admiral and his sea-faring man's bluntness brought on a small storm, both in Washington and Moscow, yet more good than harm may come out of it. It may force upon both the Soviet and the United States the necessity of complete frankness and understanding in their relationships and convince them of the importance of complete cooperation. Unless the Soviet and the other members of the "Big Four" of the United Nations are in full accord they will come to the consideration of peace and post-war problems in a mood that will threaten with failure efforts to set up permanent peace. The first effect of Admiral Standley's blunt statement has been reflected in the Soviet's radio broadcast to the Russian people of the full story of American help. That's good; probably more friendliness will follow. Probably, too, our own attitude to the Soviet may become more generous as the attitude of Stalin and his associates warms up a bit and they become less stingy with acknowledgments. Our ambassador to the Soviet may come in for a reprimand by the government in Washington, but the people are quite likely to smile upon him approvingly. Only Congress Can Repeal Daylight-Saving . By Tom Purcell. The Chronicle has always been a strong opponent of the nudeal "daylight saving" time, which does nothing but interfere with the work of the farming business generally and does no good in any way in any other section of the country, except to increase electric light and power bills for the consumers. And we are glad to say that this law was not promoted by the power companies. It was promoted by the sitdown labor unions of the larger eastern cities under the guise of-the "daylight saving" claim, aided, of course by the "social gain" crowd in Washington. The idea that the daylight time is even good for "Victory gardens" would make a farmer laugh. However, we think it would be unwise for the Iowa legislature to "repeal" this law as far as Iowa is concerned. Such a law would only affect Iowa, but instead of doing any good it would only muss up working conditions here more than they are at present. The thing to do is to keep making the demand for the repeal of this law by congress, and we may get it done. Iowa farmers in many parts of the state operate under the old standard time, especially during the harvest and threshing season of the year, and they get by pretty well. But to change the law in Iowa would do no good. The rest of the country would still be operating on the nudeal "daylight" time in the nation, the railroads would naturally be operating on the daylight time, and in fact all large public utility concerns and all government agencies would be operating on the same time. Thus if Iowa were to operate on a law of its own it would vastly interfere with the business of the state in many ways, and cause much annoyance to the people. Anyway the People Are for Standley By F. W. Beckman, According to experts in the game of diplomacy, Ambassador Wm. H. Standley made the wrong play when he declared flatly and impatiently that the Russian people are not being told by Soviet officials that the United States has been sending great quantities of war materials to help them in iheir tough fight. This is what he told a press conference in Moscow last Monday: I have carefully looked for an admission in the Russian press that they receive mu- But, Bill, How About a Kiwanis Garden? By W. C. Jarnagin. From down east comes an announcement from some bureaucrat that banquets are to be barred. This doesn't refer to $40 a plate feasts such as that served to Mrs. Harry Hopkins by Bernard Baruch at Washington not so long ago. No indeed! Rather, the bureaucrat explains, it means luncheons of service clubs, lodge dinners, Chamber of Commerce feeds, church suppers, basketball appreciations, Legion parties for inductees, and so on. Well, we'll be glad to be shown just how eliminating such get-togethers is going to help win the war. Practically every program at any of these events these times, and that of service clubs in particular, is of a patriotic nature—entertaining boys home from the front, getting the lowdown on war bond campaigns, Red Cross drives, discussing drives for scrap metal, etc. In fact, service clubs are usually out in front, helping put over the various calls that are necessary if we are to lick Hitler and Tojo, and members get pep and enthusiasm from their weekly meetings. In other words, such group dinners are morale builders. They are important contributions to our war effort. It might not be out of place to recall that from the standpoint of conserving food, the average citizen consumes more it at home than when dining out! Opinions of Editors Those High Prices for Farmers. Winterset Madisonian—Every time we hear a town business man or professional man complaining about the high prices farmers get for livestock, we want to remind them of a few years back when livestock made "low" record marks that broke low price records over a period of 40 years. Merchandise lay on the shelf for want of buyers, professional services went unpaid, and unemployment was acute. We are not exaggerating when we say that every town resident of Madison county is in the farming business. Agriculture is our basic industry. It is the main drivewheel that pretty much controls our economic machinery. And is there a thoughtful farmer in all Iowa who doesn't know that when depression follows inflation, agriculture will be the first to get it where the chicken got the axe? HODGEPODGE Webtter—A itew of yariout Ingredient*; a mixture. OE DIDN'T WANT to go home. Now that he had leave— plenty of it, he was lost for a place to spend it. He could go back to the old town. He knew he would be welcome, and that the old faces that were left would light with pleasure to see him again. JUST BECAUSE a man was in the service, he mused, didn't make him immune from a vital duty to his country in time of war. He had gone in, got a cushion job, and felt pretty good about the whole thing— at first. He was really too old to be anywhere but at home. It came back to him time and again that this is a young man's .war, and in order to make the grade as a fighting man it was necessary that one "be young. Just because he wore the same insignia that a young fellow did 'at first pleased him into thinking he was a part of it, yet now it somehow irked him. It especially hurt when he out-ranked some youngster — as far as the insignia was concerned — he knew his bit could not compare with the action those younger fellows saw. He became aware of the difference that night in the crowded restaurant. He had been broodily eating at a small table for two, with his paper conveniently spread out in the vacant space across the table. He was 'snapped out of it by a voice asking: "I wonder, sir, if you would mind if .1 took this place?" When he had looked up he saw a pair of steady brown eyes, correctly differential, above a uniform. Only one bar! He knew he must have seemed brusk and uncivil in his answer to go ahead, and he took his paper and watched the youngster settle. One bar and a pair of wings. That song — a pair of silver wings — had somehow touched him and he thought of it now. He knew he would have to say something to break the ice. He ranked the young fellow — and it was up to him to speak first. His was the privilege of opening the conversation or keeping quiet, as it suited him — because he ranked! And the young fel- ! low could take it and like it. He managed a few banalities about the weather, and was glad of the interruption when the young fellow gave his order. Dam- mit, why did the kid have to "sir" him all the time. Well, the only thing he could do was give the ball to the youngster and let him talk. He couldn't. So he led with a direct question about what the youth had been doing. "Just back on a furlough, sir. Been over across and had a little luck, and the skipper got bonged for a medal and the rest of us rated a leave back in this country ..." Well, he certainly asked for it. This youngster who was giving him the "sir" had been in action — real action — and he wondered at the twin impulses within him — to listen with bated breath and to cringe at the shame he ranked the youngster who das doing a real job instead of sitting day after day at a desk patiently unwinding the red tape a war can tangle up into snarls. ". . . Our bus was pretty badly mussed up when the skipper nursed her in on her belly and we're waiting to got another now. Maybe I'll get the chance to fly her back. The old bus was a honey, sir. They certainly are giving us plenty of 'breaks' in plane design over Jerry, and we're tickled with the newer ones . . ." What was it he read about that strike in a plane factory? Dammit, a workman who struck in a war factory was guilty of treason and should be shot! Here was a kid, why hardly old enough to have a real beard to shave, praising the new planes, and being thankful to the men who had built them — yeah — built them at so much per hour plus time and a half, seniority rights, and that sort of stuff. ". . . Jerry just doesn't have the brains and the workmen in his country. We wouldn't have come back if the bus hadn't been built right in the first place. Had a hole as big as this table in our tail where a Messy nicked us, but Jack — he's the rear gunner on the belly turret, sir — clipped the Messy as he went under. Jack's a good shot — used to hunt ducks and he tells us how he always 'leads' 'em like a duck and they flop like a duck on the way down . . ." Gad, what he would give for a chance to be in the belly turret and lead 'em like a duck. No— he was the duck— a dead duck— or rather a lame duck — too old for real action—just right to sit at a desk and "lead" some red tape! ". . . I'm glad to talk to someone in the service, sir, if I don't bore you. Have to be careful whom we , chatter with. Sure great to get back for a while, too. I like the lights — I guess we miss them the most over there. Going to go up with a friend tonight just to see a city all lighted up. All we've seen are dark except where we lay the eggs. Our gang was plenty lucky to see some of the big ones. Gee, but that Cologne show was a peach. Jerry had to haul back from Russia, so it is tougher lately, and we got ours coming back from Jerry's front porch — that's what we call Berlin. Some ack-ack tagged a couple of our windmills and we came lame and the Messys tried to gang us. We got credit for five of them, but Jack says he knows seven bit the dust. . Nicked our landing pins and we had to take a flopper when we came down at home." The kid grew silent. Waiting for him to rise first, by gosh! He knew he seemed offish when he insisted on paying the kid's check. Just wasn't done, but dammit, age has some rights. THE MOVIES ByT.H.C, PERSONAL RAMBLINGS— I am not. naturally,precise .or meticulous. I have never been a star speller and cannot now write even a short letter without the aid of a dictionary. I have, indeed, developed, by dint of arduous self-discipline, a fair capacity for keeping things neat. I try to have my desk as 1 clean as possible, I hang up my pants at night, I try not to throw eyen — occasionally—rub off the rings on the tub after I gel through bathing. All these things I do, not because they come naturally or easily, but just because as I grow older, I like to feel that everything around me is in order. The foregoing is rather a lengthy introduction to a somewhat obscure circumstance which probably not one out of ten of my readers noticed in a recent review of Casablanca. In fact it was only after one of my apparently constant readers called my attention to it that I became conscious of the crime myself. In my "rave-notice" of Casablanca I spelled the name of my hero with a "d" instead of a "t" —in other words, "Bogard" instead of "Bogart"! Now this was probably of small consequence, but it is extremely irritating to one who tries to say things correctly in public document. After all, when one writes for the newspapers, one should know how -to spell. Of course, I could blame it on the proof-reader or the linotype operator, but I made that impossible in this case by following up with another mention in which I compared Lloyd Nolan and Humphrey Bpgart as screen actors—and again I spelled Bogart with a "d" instead of a "t." I guess we are all guilty of such or like offenses. I once had a cousin that spelled "coming" with two m's—for years and years. It irritated me, but who Bancroft OLD, FELLOW, the youngster thought, as he walked down the street. "DAMNED OLD FOOL," he muttered, and blew his nose lustily, "Just a cry-baby because you're an old man." : — D. E. D.

O'Neil has received word that her son, Pvt. Merritt O'Neil, was recently "missing in action" in north Africa. Mrs. George Robbins has received word concerning her son Clarence, who was reported an Italian prisoner. was I to write and tell him about his error? We all seem to have blind spots when it comes to spelling. We consistently spell the same word incorrectly, blissfully ignorant of the. mistake and apparently without any intention of changing the error of our ways. Sometimes, of course, a kind friend does call attention to the fault, as when Editor. Dewel said I'd be<5n spelling "attendance" with an "e" instead of an "a". (I noticed that again lately, for I uhconsciously have been going back to the "e.") I hope Mr. Bogart will forgive me, and I also hope my readers will be magnanimous in future criticism. Mr. Bogart will never see the Advance, and probably this one lone reader was the only one who caught the mistake; so I'll try to carry on with only my conscience to prick me—which leads me to a clever definition of conscience —"That little part of you that, feels so badly when the rest of | you feels so, good." Palm Beach Story— This sexy, goofy, farce-comedy was slightly overdue at the Call, but has not jelled too much; it is still a fast-moving, sophisticated story about four unusual and slightly wacky people in the so- called "upper-brackets" of our social world. Joe McCrea is Claudette Colbert's husband, while sleek, sensuous Mary Astor (now a blond) is sister of Rudy Vallee, a rich oil man. The foursome get mixed up in routine farce-complications, and the result is a quite palatable dish of unadulterated "dirt." The picture is well summed up by Joel McCrea when he says to Miss Astor, "You never think of anything but Topic A, do you?" Replies .Mary, "Is there anything else?"
