WHY ECONOMY IS DIFFICULT One of the plainest reasons why a reduction in government spending is difficult, is the fact that state and local governments, now that they have tasted the gift of federal funds, are doing everything in their power to prevent the reduction of auch funds. Metropolitan city mayors have descended on Washington in blocs, and many state governors have done the same thing. They all had one thought in mind; keep the federal donations coming as long as possible. Let the nation hope that Roosevelt and administration leaders will take the right course, now that the depression is fairly well beaten, and cut expenditures. In Des Molnes, our own legislature has had quite a tussle over the Farm-to-Market Road bill. Chief question seems to be the manner in which the money is to be raised. Someone may yet come along and tell us just why there is a necessity for the spending of ANY money by the state for this plan. Our present setup seems fairly competent. The county handles its own problem in maintenance and Improvement of rural county roads. If the county desires, it can pave them, or let them go to rot, as the county taxpayers see fit. Why, then, should the state concern itself with other than the present state trunk highway system? Well, very few ever have understood the mechanism of legislators' minds; and as one local philosopher says: "It's the price we pay for democracy." IS THE RFC HOLDING THE BAG? An Interesting item in the daily press reports that stockholders in the Republic Bank & Trust Co. r of Chicago have been ordered to pay a 100 percent assessment on their holdings, which will amount to 10% millions, to repay the RFC loan arranged through Charles G. Dawes when Mr. Dawes was vice president of the United States. Mr. Dawes has already paid his own personal liability under the decree of the court. News of the total was not given. Now the moot question is whether or not the 10/4 million to be paid by the bank stockholders, plus the personal liability of Mr. Dawes, sums up to 80 millions ot dollar*., The 80 jnmUm U the sum ^aBP^wwrStir the "ftovartttlA JJMWJ" W» bm* while he was vice president \ lP ST Moreover, it must be expected that In such times unscrupulous individuals will work for their own gain. Maybe the Rlngsted incident Is more or less isolated, and maybe the complaint of the former Swea City woman can be discounted to a large extent because of the vast requirements of the flood catastrophe. Organization cannot be perfected over night Nonetheless, since the Red Cross has come to mean a holy crusade in behalf of unfortunates it might not be out of the way to give its affairs a public airing. If it is as pure as it is supposed to be, no harm will be done. If there are irregularities among its "big shots", a shakeup can be demanded. * • • Sobering Up Ackley World (Dem.): The national administration at Washington, D. C., appears to have "taken H tumble to itself, and appears to be considerably concerned at the country's financial condition. Appears to have just realized that the orgy of waste and extravagance, borrowing and scattering, has prevailed altogether too long, and with an indebtedness of thirty-five billion dollars that keeps on growing, even so good and substantial a government as ours, must be ended. It is very much like recovering from a long "spree." President Roosevelt wants to retrench, but he finds it difficult to shake off the political leeches that have fastened themselves to every department of the government: they hold fast, having become quite accustomed to receiving without producing. The government Is not different from an individual: neither can continue a practice of borrowing without paying the price that every debtor pays. « * * Let The Careful Driver Have a Permit Webster City Journal: Before the present session of the legislature met there was much talk of making it more difficult for motor vehicle drivers to secure permits. It was proposed to make examinations for permits very drastic. The theory being that good and safe drivers could be determined by examinations. But that theory has evidently been abandoned. The most reckless and dangerous drivers are often the most capable and could pass better examinations than many who have proved by experience that they are the safest and the most cautious. As the Freeman-Journal has contended all along, the driver who has a good record, who has driven a car a number of years without serious accidents due to his own carelessness or recklessness is the safer driver whether he can pass a rig- Id examination or not. The careless ones, the reckless ones, who may appear to be the very safest upon examination, are often the one who cause the largest number of accidents. The safe and sane driver is not the one who knows the moat about operating a car. but is the one who uses good judgment and has due respect for the rights of others upon the highways. Suppose a driver does not know all about the laws and the rules of the road, if he has good sense and exercises discretion he will go far without an accident, and is entitled to n permit to drive whether or not he can pass a complicated and rigid examination. * * * Labor Agitators Drive Cadillacs Oskaloosa Herald: Little do we know of the sacrifices our leaders make for a cause. It Is related that John L. Lewis drives a Cadillac and had to do without it for several days recently because the repair shop couldn't get spare parts. * * • Low Auto Expense Webster City Freeman: The state agricultural department has certainly made a good record in the cost of operating cars and trucks. Driving a distance of 56.371 miles the cost was 2.4 cents a mile. These costs include everything—Interest, depreciation, tires and upkeep generally. Years ago, when the department first kept records of mileage cost, it was 4 cents a miles. But cars cost more then and were not as good as now. Tires last longer, as they are better made than formerly. Government Bonds Should be "Plowed Under" Humboldt Republican: The administration heads are said to be looking for the cause of the fall in the price of government bonds. Secretary Wallace should be able to tell them that it is a plain case of overproduction. A little "plowing under" of the bond issues would help a lot. Also planned production would be an asset Why not apply to the treasury the theories practiced in the agricultural department? « * e Senator Herring U Warned Humboldt Independent: Hints from Washington indicate that the president's bill to pack the supreme court is traveling a rocky way. Those in close touch with the administration's policies believe that by applying pressure on federal patronage and political appointments the bill ran be forced through. Others believe it will fail. This seems to be a time when the legislators should TV- member that they represent the people—not the president. They have to be elected If they remain in congress, and no one but the voters can re-elect them. Regardless of the pressure from the White House they should represent the will of their constituents. This applies especially to Senator Herring • • • Is The Red t'rohs on the I'p und I'p? Swea City Herald: A story from Ringsted about articles of clothing guthcred in that neighborhood for the people of the Hood districts turning up at a DCS Moines rummage s-ftlc. is a reminder of the under-surfaee rumblings concerning the Red Cross. We. have in our flits a letter from a Swea City woman whose work took htr into the midst of the flood. She says in part: "We have been quite disgusted with the National Kcd Cross. So far as Were com i-rm-ii we did not know thtre was su< h a thing as Red Cross. except that \ve got supplies from llvm the last two week* we operated. Hi/fort- that tim.: Wt even furnished our own Mipplu-.-. Our own people did every bit of the work witaout he-iiif paid. We did not even have advice from the- Ktd Cross as to organization. Then when all the work was over, along, dime some- highly paid uJlicials who told u.s how it should have bet-n done, ask-d for all kinds of reports and finally closed all the stations i xc e-pt one where people have to wait in line for hours and hours before they get any kind of he-lp." The reviews from time t& time have charged boldly that an intrenched group is in control of the Ked Cross, with a list of highly-paid officers, whose arbitrary conduct hampers the efficient administration of relief. 'This does not rnean there- is anything wrong with county and local Red Cross organizations. They are made up of high-minded unselfish men and women who haw given their tune; without stint in periods of national emergency. ."MAY DAY .tlUSING Phil Kohlhaas home from Des Monies, with an Over The Coffee tribute to his innovation of bazooka playing . . .
