SO WHAT, MR. PRESIDENT John L. Lewis and the C. I. O. have been very successful In their Illegal raids on employers and employees alike. They bid fair to hold a whip hand over not only the men who own the businesses but those who work in them. Dictatorship in taking a new turn. With all trade Indexes showing better business, there seems to be a great deal of trouble In getting any concerted government drive to bring about any real economy or reduction of expenditures—In fact to even hold them steady without an advance may be difficult The relief situation gives warning that what was originally begun as a humanitarian measure to provide sustenance for millions during trying times, may become an accepted standard of the government. And not only Washington, but every state government sees in Its relief appropriation an excellent chance to obtain money with which to buy votes. The Supreme Court situation has almost cleared Itself up. The Court has become "liberal" In every one of its rulings since the White House called for a new setup on the bench, with one oldster already resigning. While not overlooking the fact that President Roosevelt has done a great many beneficial things to date, it does seem very evident that his biggest problems, unexpectedly, are going to be those of the next year or so. If he can control the nightmare of appropriations, bureaus, labor troubles, dams, dust bowls, and what not, he will be a miracle man, and a truly great president He still has a following that constitutes the majority of the nation. He is aided by the fact that party opposition in the G. O. P. ranks is still nil. But his great problem is to handle the situation from now on so that those who constitute the balance of power in party voting—and who have been with him to date—do not lose faith in the wisdom of his final term in office. The second presidential term Is always harder than the first, especially in attempts to retain public confidence. President Roosevelt can smash the good Impressions left from first term of office, by Inability or Indecision in facing the problems of kirseoond turn. W« hope hs Is as successful In his •fforts aTWashington as bs seems to be with deep •ea nshiasT. principle Is a part of the fine work of Fred White, chief highway engineer. To be sure there are places throughout the state where towns have been missed by paving in favor of traffic, but by and large few- towns have been Isolated to any great degree. Accordingly, it this principle is to prevail, then Ledyard by all means should get the paving, more especially since the interests of Lakota will not be harmed to any great degree. Ledyard citizens supported the original hard-surface program in this county. They always have been loyal to the interests of Kossuth. These are sufficient reasons why they should be favored in this Instance. * * * Kraschel's Economy (?) Anamosa Eureka: Governor Kraschel vetoed the state salary publication bill. The legislature felt that the taxpayers who really pay the bills should know what they are paying the people who work for them. They therefore passed a bill that requires the comptroller each year to publish these salaries. For some unknown reason the governor does not wish these salaries published. His reason given for the veto is that the salaries are a public record in the comptroller's office. In other words if you wish to know what certain salaries are you can make a trip to Des Molnes", go to the comptroller's office in the state house, sit m the outer office for an hour waiting to see him, and then probably be assigned to some clerk who will spend another hour looking it up for you. His second reason was that there was no appropriation to cover the cost We imagine it would not cost over $500 to get out a pamphlet of the salaries and we just wonder when this wave of economy struck the governor. We hope it sticks for the Lord knows it has been a scarce article In this administration, * • • Herring A "Ye» Man" Anamosa Eureka: That John L. Lewis has some hold on President Roosevelt is shown by appointment of John C. Lewis of Iowa, to the national bituminous coal commission. "Shady", as he is known in Itowa, was president of the Iowa Federation of Labor. He was also an Iowa coal miner as John L. was. To make this appointment without considering either of Iowa's Senators, is to say the least, quite unusual. That the president would Ignore Iowa's Senator Gillette for his stand on the president's pet hobby of Increasing the Supreme Court is along the lines of the president's reprisals on those who oppose him. But Iowa's Senator Herring has been a good boy as far as the court is concerned and to Ignore him shows definitely John L. Lewis has considerable power in Washington. Herring will of course get back of the appointment although John C. was one of the main ones that put the heat on Herring's appointment through the president of Keller as WPA administrator in Iowa. You will find Senator Herring of Iowa Just one more button for the president to push when he wishes something. * • » Not A Bad Definition! Exchange: A Minnesota county newspaper defines a communist as "one who raises hell when he hasn't a job and strikes when he gets one." * * * Old Judges Vote Liberal Eagle Grove Eagle: The New Deal legislation wins another notable victory in the supreme court. The Social Security laws have been upheld. The oldest judge votes with the liberal members and the youngest judge with the conservatives. The president's supreme court pack Idea has gone sour. There Is no necessity for six new judges from the standpoint of cost alone, the plan should be defeated. The salaries of the judges, their clerks, secretaries, stenographers and assistants would cost the taxpayers around $200,000 per year, $200,000 which the government does not have and would have to borrow. EMMETSBURG'S TEST CASE Transient peddlers and solicitors, and city governments in the state, will have a chance to find out whether or not a city law requiring peddlers to have a license is valid. At Emmetsburg, where the city government has taken a firm and decisive attitude about transient peddlers, the Real Silk hosiery firm Is appealing a recent fine Imposed on one of Its salesmen, on the grounds that such a law is interfering with interstate commerce laws. The Real Silk firm, manufacturing its products In a distant state, naturally has to ship its products in after being sold. Emmetsburg is not the only community interested; every city with similar laws will be following the matter closely. The mail order firms, with salesmen In the field, have a pretty good-sized war chest with which to fight such legal battles, and the going may be somewhat tough for Emmetsburg officials. But In passing, let UH say that we wish them well. The Real Silk firm is one of the most reputable concerns in the business. But an opinion in the firm's favor is very likely to let down the bars to all sorts of fake and fraudulent schemes, who because of a favorable decision for Real Silk, will see their way clear to make the most of their opportunity. Peddler's laws are the city's only way of protecting Its own merchants and business m«n. Algona had a sample of what uncontrolled transient salesmen can do 10 days ago, when a number of Algona homes were taken in by the photograph racket. ALCOHOL FBO&I CORN At the Chemical Foundation in Atchlson, Kansas, $400,000 was spent in building a plant to carry on research to find ways and means of transforming corn and wheat into alcohol for industrial purposes. After seven months of experiment, It was found that a bushel of corn will produce 2.4 gallons of alcohol, but that with the cost of corn what it is today (which is the price a farmer must have to make any money) producing alcohol from corn is prohibitive in cost. Chemists admit, however, that corn-alcohol mixed with gasoline, makes a superior motor fuel. Which brings to mind the recent plan to build a corn-alcohol plant in Algona. And by the way —what happened. We supposed of course that Mr. Dougherty would immediately get to work on the project after his acquittal on a charge of violating the state securities laws, in connection with plans to build a plant here. Paving On Hood 169 Swea City Herald: Poking you nose into your neighbors' scraps usually results in a bash on said proboscis. Nonetheless, our excuse for saying something about the current controversy between Lakota and Ledyard over the location of paving on road 169 arises from our interest in the Iowa road program dating back to 1910 when the campaign for hard roads in Kossuth county was put on. Tice Brack, Ledyard merchant and republican candidate for representative in the last election, points out in a letter to the Bancroft Register that when the original campaign was waged it promised that road 169 would be paved across the county. If our recollection Is correct, the hard roads boosters at that time prepared maps showing where the paving was to go. Tb* present course of 169 thnnur*' Ledyard was shown at that Urns.

Job must have been the discovery that some slight errors had been made in the specifications, not great, but still enough to cause solid cement on the basement floor to be hacked out and replanted after a different size cable or conduit or something was Installed. Now that D. Wane Collins Is going Into the insurance business, we can expect the old maestro to carry around a magic flute in his pocket . . . play a tune and then sign on the dotted line. L. E. Llnnan related a story recently, about attending his last year the State U. of Iowa. He sent his trunks on ahead, and wore his old suit (as we recall it, he had two) putting all of his worldly belongings In the trunk, from toothbrush on up. Somewhere along the line, the trunk was stolen, and Luke arrived at school minus a change of clothing, Inside and outside. And that, Luke pointed out, is the Joy of belonging to a fraternity. He said every morning he lined up his fraternity brothers, and told them what their clothing contribution for the day would be to the Linnan cause. Twenty years ago last Friday, Dud McDonald sailed* for France, with General Pershlng. A year or so later he was spending his time behind the enemy lines, a prison camp inmate, after being shot down while piloting a bomber. Friday he celebrated the occasion with a peaceful little game of golf, not even losing his temper once. Bight about now Is when the air-conditioning boys are beginning to say: "I told you so." Speaking of golf, the boys from Bode enjoy themselves on the Algona course, and so does a Lone Rock crew . . . plenty of room—where is Wesley and Whlttemore and Hurt and Bancroft, etc. * * * We're giving Bob Post a post graduate business training ... he worked two days last week collecting subscription accounts. * * • Johnny fhlenhuke, over ut Whittemore, subscribing to the paper, says he looks forward to the Last Line.

The MARCH OF TIME ISO. O. 8. FAT. OTT. Prepared by the Editors of TIME T/ie Weekly Newsmagazine BILBAO'S CHILDREN— SOUTHAMPTON, England: Completing one of the greatest mass evacuations of children in history, 4,000 Basque refugee youngsters carrying their Sunday clothes in little bundles debarked last week from the Spanish steamer "Habana" at Southampton, staged a healthy, yowling child-riot when forcibly washed and given haircuts. Encamped in a tent city next day, away from the horror of war, the children suddenly screamed In terror and scampered for shelter when a squadron of British planes on practice flight whirred overhead; would not be quieted until a Basque priest had said Mass and a Basque chef had stewed up steaming caldrons of "bacaloa Bilbanio" (creamed codfish), their national dish. Meanwhile in Valencia, stocky, 48-year old Premier Dr. Juan Negrin's tight, unified little cabinet of nine—the 6th Leftist Cabinet since the civil war's outbreak—took office to remove from the government the curse of radicalism. No more and no less Red than that of French Premier Leon Blum. Premier Negrin's Cabinet heartened most Spanish Leftists who seem to want democracy more than communism, settled down to the business of winning world favor and Spain's civil war. •MID SNOW AND ICE- GRENOBLE, France: Noted for great strength, docility, Intelligence and an expression of almost Idiotic benignity ar* th* 900-lb. dogs of St. Bernard, traditionally trained by the monks of that hospice to succor and save benighted travelers in the 8,llJt-foot pass under Mt. Blanc's cold shoulder near the Franco-Swiss frontier. But one morning last week, the St. Bernard record for canine Christianity was unaccountably shattered. Setting forth from Grenoble on a skiing trip across the Swiss border, Dr. Jean Bremond and his three daughters slid up and up along the Great St. Bernard pass, cru-u-unch- ed their skis in the granular Alpine snow aa they came In sight of the home of the pious monks of St Bernard. A deep-voiced barking broke out aa the famed monastery dogs came leaping to greet the travelers, and 10-year-old Marie- Anne, laughing excitedly, hurried ahead. As the dogs closed In on her, Marlev-Anne shrieked. With their black gowns hiked up, the monks came stumbling and shout- Ing from their quarters, hauled and called off the dogs, found Marie- Anne limp and bleeding in the snow, with deep gashes in her face and body. Inside the hospice, she shortly died. Greatly grieved and unable to Identify the killer, the monks of St Bernard locked up the entire pack as punishment", gave as the only possible explanation of the tragedy their belief that the guilty dog must have "suddenly gone mad.' Sorrowed the Father Superior: "We are in deep mourning here, not only for this unfortunate girl, but for the honor of our dogs that has been unblemished for centuries." RECOVERY— EVANSVILLE, Indiana: Suspecting that her dog Jerry had eaten up two $5 bills, Mrs. John Benham of Evansville fed him liberal amounts of castor oil, retrieved the bills in fragments, patched them to gether, forwarded them to the U S. Treasury at Washington for re demption. DIAMOND- SEATTLE, Washington: When Mrs. William Morgan of Seattl had a $100 diamond pecked fron her ring while she was feeding her poultry, the Morgan family cooked and carefully chewed a chicken a day for 18 days, finally found th diamond in a roster's gizzard. GYPSUM QUEEN- MANCHESTER, New Hamp shire I Fifteen years after hi schooner "Gypsum Queen" sank of the Irish coast during a storm ii 1913, Owner-Captain Freeman Hat field of Nuvia Scotia declared tha she had been torpedoed by a Ger man submarine, claimed and go from the Canadian government t $71,276.72 indemnity, abandoned th sea for a small chicken farm in Candia, N. H. Later, when the Canadian gov eminent discovered that the "Gyp sum Queen" was not torpedoed but had foundered in heavy seas, police arrested Captain Hatfleld, locked him up in a Manchester jail where for two years he has fought extradition to Canada to face charges of larceny and obtaining money under false pretenses. In Federal district court be pleaded that he was being held without justification, lost the case. Early this year he won a partial victory when the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals found the lower court un- ustlfled in holding him for larceny iut justified in holding him for ex- radition on the charge of obtain- ng money under false pretenses Then he appealed to the Supreme Court without success, and the U S. State Department issued an extradition order. Reluctantly enter- ng the custody of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Captain Treeman last week set off for Ot- twa to await trial, declared that he hoped "for an early return to my snug harbor at Candia." "FIRST BLOOD"— LOS ANGELES: Before 500 boys and girls aahlver with excitement, and the approving faculty of Los Angeles Junior College, curly-headed Student Robert Couslneau and wiry Student Harold Bauer, each stripped to the waist and armed with a sword, prepared last week 'or a momentous duel. When they Inlshed posing for cameramen, Students Couslneau and Bauer put on fencing masks, but left the tips of their weapons exposed. Then Captafn Fred Schwanstaovsky of :he college fencing team stepped up to referee, grimly explained that they would use not fencing foils but regulation French epees. Lunging, slashing, parrying, feinting, with danger flashing at the needle points of their weapons the two boys fought. Suddenly Student Couslneau made a long, savage thrust and from Student Bauer's arm spurted a red Jet of real Mood. Touch*!" cried th* referee, and the duel was over. Moving spirit of this extraordinary performance, which was claimed to have drawn "the first blood ever Intentionally shed by U. S. college fencers" was Los Ang- eles Junior's lively Fencing Coach John Tatum. who exulted: "We have been trying to arrnnge rm affair like this for three years to popularize fencing." Nothing was nt stake except Student Bauer's desire for the No. 2 rating on the fencing team, which Student Cousineau enjoyed by virtue of his showing in the Pacific coast fencing tournament last month. Nursing a three-inch cut. Fencer Bnu- er had to content himself with the No. 3 rnting. At Coach Tatum's implication that fencing is not a sufficently exciting sport without bloodshed, other college fencing instructors were quick to protest. Snapped Yale's veteran Robert Grasson: "Very foolish." Echoed Harvard's Rene Percy: "Foolish and unsafe." More impassive was George Santelli, saber coach of the 1936 U. S. Olympic team. Shrugged he: "To approve . . . would be to approve the possibility that someone might be killed, so I do not approve." WHOOSH!— NEW YORK: A devotee of the New York "American's" 'cnrtoton strip "Radio Patrol'f, filling station Attendant Harry Millstlne of Queens Borough was professionally Interested one day last week in a "Radio Patrol" sequence which depicted a gasoline vendor foiling a bandit by drenching him with a fuel hose. Few hours later, a holdup man entered Harry Mlllstine's station, emptied the cash drawer, ordered Millstlne to wait on a customer who happened to drive up, hovered over him while he obeyed. The pump began to click and the measuring bell had pinged once when Millstlne suddenly wheeled around. "Woosh!" went the acrid stream of gasoline, in good funny- paper style, squarely between the bandit's eyes. When he got them clear again, he was In jail. PUSH- MEMPHIS, Tennessee: Golfer Harvey Thompson of Memphis solemnly related that after his putt had stopped on the cup's lip, his ball tumbled In when a big fly landed on It. Livermore Boy Will Marry Soon Livermore: Mrs. Nellie Devlne and daughters, Margaret.
