It was therefore with surprise that it was learned a few weeks ::go thai Hie American Institute of Public Opinion, after laborious investigation, had announced that the people were all along ahead of their cautious leaders and would have endorsed arming to the hilt. The Institute also found that the people in their mass thinking are usually right on public issues and ''show more common sense" than the men who arc supposed to lead them. These deductions were aired in a rccen Reader's Digest rewrite giving results of. the Institute's investigation, as follows: As early as November, 1935 less than thre years after Hitler c-me to power, a Gallup survey revealed that SCVCMI voters in ten fa vored a bigwr armv and ti:ivy, and eight ou of ten n larger air force. After tl-.o Europea war hrtke out in September. 1939, the per ctntage favoring rearmament rose still high or; 80 per cent favored a bigger army -an navy, and 91 per cent an expanded air force Probably most newspaper readers eve here in Iowa, far from either coast, will per sonnlly recollect that this was so; "yet," th Institute's editor goes on to say, "when i: March, 19-40—six"months after the war [i Europe] had begun—the army asked for money to build 1200 new military airplanes, congress, fearful of isolationist blocs, appropriated enough to build exactly 59." In fact, while Eurooc was on fire and Hitler's troops were crushing all before them, and while it was plain that Mussolini and the Japs were awaiting only the most favof- able moment to enter the fray, it was not till a year hler that American leadership took first steps to catch up with the people. The institute's editor writes: Not until the summer of 1941 did the ex- perls of the state department decide that our trade relations with Japan were too liberal. Yet as early as 1!)3!!, three years before Pearl Harbor, three voters out of every four wanted an embargo placed on the shipment of oil, scrap metal, gasoline, and other war materials to Japan. Readers of Iowa newspapers, particularly the weeklies, will recall that this also was so. Newspapers maintaining editorial departments were rare which did not frequently complain about the shipments of war goods to Japan. ,- Looking back at the record since Ihe mid- ;iO's, particular!}' .since 1941, one cannot but come to at least two conclusions: 1, That the common sense of the people as a whole is usually more trustworthy than that of their leadership; and, 2, That leadership in Washington is often too sensitive to vociferous minority blocs. ertising in the western mountain and west oast newspapers. As Men in Service View Strikes at Home All reports agree that nothing at home arouses the ire of service personnel overseas nore than reports of strikes in war plants. The Webster City Freeman illustrates such bitter resentment by quoting a letter signed by 40 seamen in the South Pacific naval forces directed to GOOO strikers in shipyards at Quincy, Mass. The boys wrote: We are an infinitesimal part of the navy, but are helping as best we can to win this Long, Long Ago Advances, of Qcl. 21-28 and Nov. 4, 1914.

The thing we need most out here is the fighting ships you are holding back from us by your actions. Why not take a little time to think about us over here fighting for our country? Don't let the boys down with strikes. The letter went on to say that the writers were in service on a patrol boat. In extended patrols they often run low on food and have to eat the same thing three times a cljy for any number of days. "All the while we must fight the sea and whatever else comes up." Life on board any ship, particularly a patrol boat, gets monotonous in long duty. The boys long for a shore vacation. They get overwhelmingly tired of only male faces. "None of us has seen white girls for so long that we have almost forgotten what they look like." The boys get half-crazed for lack of the ordinary contacts of life among people of their own kind. Hardly a man in service anywhere in this war but wants above all things to get this war over with and come home. But they can't strike. They have to keep going whether they like it or not, and they resent with all their minds the spectacle of men at home who suffer no privations and face no dangers such as theirs but who in effect keep them longer in service by strikes which And anyone with even a mild, case of reticence has a heck of a time running around seeking votes. There is. just something ingrained in the average man that forbids such action unless he s afflicted with a bad case of superiority complex. -Ar-A*:' " W. And there is something that is disheartening to contemplate in the way some people vote n straight ballot for president and don't care who appears below in the minor offices. Really now, it is the people in the minor office with whom the average person has his most intimate contact as office-holders— perhaps it should be added ELECTIVE office-holders in this present day of surplus- age of appointive holders of the public trust. Yet too many people just go into a ballot booth, mark a cross in the circle and probably do not even read the list of candidates. And people in both parties are equally guilty. It is a crime against citizenship to assume that every person on the ticket you adore is a saint and every person on the opposing ticket consorts with the devil. Perhaps it is a political mistake for this candidate to state that in the several years has voted he has not yet voted a straight ticket. (As this does not get into print till after election the hard- shell republicans can't get to me, and the hard-shell democrats can't swell with pride because they are as guilty as their brothers across the line.) . . , dora state industrial school.fac-1 ,_' and two tables of 5.QQ were in ulty, can tell you what a whack £' Mrs , D - lc k Q'PonneU was it. _ i ji A t — „ ,., .in n*"i«l/'o pniilfi F. . i« m Ti«*>»« «**/4. f\ TinrittCM I .

The cruiser or carrier delayed by your strike may be the deciding ibctor in some future battle. It may e only a few days late, but in this war a ew minutes may mean everything." And that's straight talk right from the boys whose lives are risked daily to save reedom for the very strikers themselves. How can thinking men strike in the face of hat fact? How can they read such a message is this from the patrol boat boys and not shrink with shame? It is high time that war strikers in this country were dealt with as they deserve. If they won't work, let them be drafted and be compelled to obey orders without question as the boys who fight for them have to do. On the national and state tickets it is right that party be considered. Only a few people get to see these candidates, and thus only a few can form opinions by personal contact.

Milwau- 'Rackets' That Seek Aid v From Newspapers Doubtless a good many Iowa editors per- iiscd this excerpt from an editorial in the Grinnell Herald-Register with interest: The other day we received in our mail a postul card from some ;;uy out in Idaho who professed to be able to assist aspirants to connubial bliss if they would just write him l the applicant had to do was to send a ""AJl sta-.' But down in the county it is downright silly to vote for, say coroner, because the party the candidate is on has the best foreign policy. What in the same of all that's decent has a coroner to do with foreign policy? Or for that matter the sheriff, the county auditor, the clerk of court, the county recorder, the county attorney, the county treasurer? Or the members of the board of supervisors? Yet a lot of people go into the booth and take pride in "voting her straight," Timely Topics The Iowa Business Digest, published monthly by the Business Resaarch Bureau of the State University College of Commerce says statistical organizations as well as eminent economists expect active business for two or three years after the war. O. K., but let's have it active for farmers too this time. Without intending any reflection on Mr. Roosevelt in case he has been reelected When this mention appears, the Advance believes that if the question of more than two terms in the presidency could be divorced from politics and submitted to the people they would vote it down. This- -is one of the freak things which oc casionally-fall in the way of newspapers. were expected to run this ambitious offer a a classified advertisement for a month with the childish hope that we would be paid for it. Perhaps we would get paid. Perhaps we wouldn't. Who knows? It might well be that this postal card reflects the belief, too often well founded, that the country newspaper is a sucker for- such things. Editor Frisbie wasn't the only editor who received the communication in question, far from it, for it was dropped hastily into many and many an editorial wastebasket. In newspaper circles this is a well known 'racket,' but unfortunately enough inexperienced newspaper men fall for it to keep it alive. Another 'racket' that experienced editors do not fall for is requests from distant points for copies of their newspapers. The bait is always a vague promise of advertising, and (he prcn tense is that (he applicant wants to see the paper first in order to judge whether the advertising would be likely to prove profitable. But the rc'jl reason is that names mentioned in the paper are wanted for direct mail contact. In fact the unsuspecting aid of newspapers is sought for kinds of 'rackets.' This Idaho gent, for example, may be running a matrimonial agency, or just a 'lonely heart' bureau; or maybe his 'racket' is no more Power Politics of the CIO-PAC Variety From the Sheldon Sun. The Political Action Committee of the CIO has launched somethmg new on the American scene—power politics. We have always had political parties, but they have represented all groups of people. Now we see one group, numbering members in millions and highly financed by initiation fees and monthly dues, deliberately planning to dominate elections. It has been allowed to make campaign contributions of any size, whereas industry has been stringently limited on political expenditures. A man cannot get a job in the United States in most of the basic industries, particularly if they are producing war materials, without paying dues to a union. The implications behind the Political Action Committee of the CIO are therefore terrific. If politics can be organized on the same compulsory basis as labor has been, so that no mun can get into public office without ''conforming," what kind of a government are we going to have? It will take real statesmen in Congress to meet such, powerful pressure, which is backed by millions of dollars. American citizens must watch with jealous eye the growth of organization "power politics" which, if uncontrolled, will destroy liberty itself. Fortuately, our voting ballots are still secret, and a man can let his con- sei*Qce be his guide at the polls. An there's that matter of speaking to people. Once you're a candidate for office you are the "friend" of everybody. They expect you to say hello, and yet often when you do they opine you're just doing it to bet their vote. And a candidate gets into the habit of wearing a gosh awful grin on his puss anc bobbing his head right and left in an effor not to miss anybody till he realizes himsell that he's being silly. But there isn't much he can do about it and he yearns for the good old days when he could walk down the street busy with his thoughts and be understood by friends who see by his vacant stare that his mind is miles away. No wonder sometimes a politician after an election gets crusty! * Q * And there are the axe-grinders- —r people with a great purpose in life—who if you don't see it their way wield a wicked axe on your political body. Most of them are "one- trackers" with a single purpose and you're either "fer" or "agin." There's no middle gdound where a person in office could be expected to use his best judgment.

One of the latter was as big as a 6-year-old boy. Where was 'Alf Kresensky on Halloween 30 years ago? He was with seven girls—Marjorie and Genevieve Bowyer, Eva Brown, Frances Wright, Alice Moline, Alice Weisbrod, and Welcome Johnston—chasing around tpwr nd attending a "progressive" ats party. (Tagging along were ohn Guderian, John McFarland Paul Benjamin, Earl Willson. ,eon Stock, and Herbert Staley.) But, perhaps best of all, there are those who seek to find out whether you're reasonable or not, and it's a distinct pleasure to talk things over with them, They're enable themselves, even about their pet projects, and are willing to listen to your arguments as well as expect you to listen to their side of the problem, * * Fortunately the majority are in this class, and believe it or not there is a greater percentage of farmers in this class than, townspeople imagine. Now that the election is over this can not be called political applesauce as so many have termed some thipgs said—but it seems true that the farmer is much more apt to be willing to listen to. you and keep an open mind than is the towns- person, who is used to forming snap, judgments, and then fighting for thern, rigijfc or wrong. Not all farmers are that way^-nor are all townspeople that way — miybe it's just more noticeable. Well, win or not—the average politician is more than happy to just "have it over wi.th.' —D. E. D.
