OUR IOWA "COMMUNISTS" It has been great sport, the past few years, whenever a person or a group hope to deride the opposition, to assault them by calling them "communists." Although not one out of ten knows Just what communism is, or socialism, or any of the other isms are, we do know it's something we don't like, and don't want. Down i.t Amana, Iowa, where the Amana colony Is located, we have one of the finest examples of pure "communism" to be found anywhere In the world. ' Communism Is not essentially a ware machine; it is a theory of life which most of us do not accept or want, but when we realize that the Amana colony Is communistic, and about as peaceful a place as one could ask for, we can't get too excited when the super-patriots try to scare the shirts off our backs with cries of "Communist" Theories of political life, such as Communism, Fascism, Empires and Democracies, are a lot like religions. If the form of government (or the rel- Igon) Is worth Its salt. It will survive the tests of time, and outlast Its competitors. If it does not have the necessaryvirtues, the people will eventually find It out arid discard It. THE EMMET8BUBG TEST CASE , Real Silk hosiery and other house-to-house sell- Ing organizations won their point at Emmetsburg. The Emmetsburg city ordinance regulating such peddlers was practically declared null and void by a district court judge. But before throwing up our hands In horror, and deciding that all the riff-raff peddlers In the land, as well as the better class of canvassers, will sweep us off our feet, let's remember one thing. Emmetsburg's ordinance was declared Invalid. That does not necessarily mean that the ordinances In force in other cities are also invalid. Not by any means. The United State Supreme Court has held the Green River ordinance as legal and lawful, so the fight Isn't over yet. Sometimes. In making efforts to protect local merchants, one wonders at the wisdom and loyalty of those few who seem to oppose city pedd tor.»rdln- ances. But In the long run, we still believe that cities will be allowed to decide whether or not they are going to have peddlers over-running the community. _ MODERN ROMEO AND JULIET Politics make strange bedfellows, so the say- But the differences In the political, economic viewpoints of the Roosevelt family and the DuPont Old-Dial family »««» to make absolutely no difference to Ethel DuPont and Franklin Rosevelt.

Dim Your Headlights Bmmetsburg Tribune: A provision of the new automobile law. which goes Into effect July 4, requires that cars shall be equipped for dimming the headlights, and that when passing witter car at night the lights must be lowered. It Is aj m ed at the fellow.wlth a cheap car and glaring headHghts^^who feels he la having a good time If he can putBother drivers to Inconveniences.

As was expected, Anarchists ran serk for a few hours before the city was abandoned, murdered many a suspected Rebel sympathizer; but Bilbaina housewives shrilly greeted the invaders and the prospect of relief from constant gunfire and bombing. Knowing the growing unpopular Ity of all foreign troops with Span- lards of either side. Rebel General Jose Fidel Devlla carefully kept the Black Arrow Italian division well In the background, thrust forward the red bereted Carllst Royalist militia. Meanwhile, Generalissimo Franco pushed on toward Santander, well realizing that every day's delay merely enabled this next objective to rally Its defenses, that the city must be taken quickly If Spain is to be conquered and Madrid captured this summer. and Mrs. Franklin D.

So many oil ads yell mileage, that you can't teU one way or another. I don't want my own ads to be in that class, so I'd like you to know all I'm staking, when I personally recommend Conoco Germ Processed oil to you. In my case, you see, I'm the owner of my business. And there's nothing makes repeat customers for me like my Germ Processed oil ... or I ought to say, the long mileage it gives you. The patent Germ Process makes this oil get fastened real firm to the bearings and cylinders and other parts—as if they'd been built with an actual plating of oil that can't separate can't thin out and burn right up. Neither is it going to run down every time you stop. Then you can't make any "dry starts" with Oil-Plating, and right there is where engineers say you will end a good half of all the wear you used to get in Summer. The less wear, the less oil your engine eats. You'll get on to this yourself, from your cool quiet Oil-Plated engine. And that's how I make another good friend for my Conoco Germ Processed oil.
