When a government allows thugs to attack reputable men on the street and in their homes because they refuse to strike, things are getting to A pretty pass. But this is what is happening In Michigan and what happened in Des Moines in the recent laundry strike. * «, „ ~~ * North Dodge Street J. W. HAGQARJD & R. B.

He Sees The Light! Spencer News-Herald: Last Sunday we were in Algonn and we wandered down to the beautiful swimming pool in its natural bowl of trees. The waters were filled with laughing, splashing children. The young men and women were enjoying themselves in the deeper sections. Many an "oldster", too. was recreating his young days, either by swimming or by drawing an immense amount of enjoyment from watching the others. There were several Clay county cars parked there and we met a number of people we knew. We went out into Algona's state park, which THE AFTER-MATH "Let the people know the truth and the country Is safe."—Abraham Lincoln. 'SECOND GUESSING" ON BANK ROBBERY Downtown quarterbacking is to football what this editorial is to the Whittemore bank robbery. After the horse is stolen is a poor time to lock the barn. Two years ago this newspaper advocated some definite, prepared plan of combatting such events as the Whittemore bank robbery. We pointed out that the accepted method of trying to apprehend such holdup men was to go to the scene of the crime, obtain all possible details, and then set out after the culprits. This has been going on for years in rural communities, through no fault of public officials. But as we pointed out two years ago. in our large cities a more modern method is now being used. When crimes are reported, and as holdup men •re beginning their getaway, radio squad cars concentrate from all directions on the crime zone, with as good a description as possible of the bandits sought. The bandits are more or less bottled up in a "crime zone" and have to break through a police cordon to get away. It would require a great deal of organization but a similar plan would provide half a chance to catch the bandits in rural sections. If, Immediately after such a robbery as the one at Whittemore, roads could be blocked off in a circle around the "crime zone," the bandit machine might be bottled up before It could get very far. It would require quick thinking and speed of execution. Perhaps the Idea is impractical; nobody knows because it has never been tried. Iowa has the makings of such an organization, however. With state radio stations, and state police equipped with radios, something along that line might be worked out. And we do know this. That until some such modern method Is attempted, it is of little use to expect capture of the bandits, except when a "slip" occurs—which always does sooner or later in the career of every criminal. WHAT ARE POLICE EXPECTED TO DO? And now comes another Investigation by the U. S. Senate. This time, the boys being investigated arc the police who participated in the riot at the South Chicago, Indiana, steel plant, when strikers attempted to push past the 150 police to get at the »4n*n working In the plant despite the strike. Nobody condones high-handed police methods, nor the use of third degree methods In obtaining confessions behind closed doors. The police are sometimes inclined to both of these faults. But this time it was something entirely different Strikers, empowered with the sense of their own superior numbers, and inflamed by paid agitators making a fine salary for inciting the strike and rioting as well, tried to storm the plant. The police were in the way. The strikers were armed with weapons and used plenty of rocks. What can the American public expect the police to do in a case like that? Are policemen hired to stand supinely by and take such abuse; did the strikers believe they had the police power, and not the men in uniform. The only surprise is that More persons were not killed. It seems extremely strange, when camera and photographic record* of the riot were taken at the time which distinctly show that the police held oft as long as possible to have the U. S. Senate investigating, and senators criticizing, the actions of the police in this instance. In spite of the fact that we are classed among Spencer's most avid boosters, we couldn't help but wonder just why these things could be possible in Algona, but existed only in dreams in Spencer. • • • Iowa In the Lead Again Clarion Monitor: The internal revenue collections for April were approximately $98,000.000 greater than for the same month a year ago. The largest percentage of increase was noted in the liquor taxes. It indicated that liquor consumption had increased 20 per cent for the month of April, 1937, over the same month a year ago. While no figures are at hand it is known that the sale of hard liquor in Iowa Is gradually on the increase. The beer snles for the state for April Increased 121,000 gallons. The increased consumption of the amber fluid during the year period of its sale under the present law Is more than 20,000,000 gallons. The federal and state tax on a barrel of beer (31 gallons) Is $6.24. From the above it may be noted that Iowa is doing her share in supporting the government. # * • Moscow Rales Prevail Estherville News:The Martin County, Minn., sheriff Is behind the times. Commenting on the destruction of three rural mail boxes by an autoist who the officer is convinced knocked them down purposely he anounced firmly that "there is a serious penalty for damaging mail boxes used by Uncle Sam." Oh, Yeah? That's before the CIO took over the government The sheriff might talk to his nearest CIO representative and find out whether or not it is a crime to interfere with the mail. He'll find nut it isn't. You see it depends on what is put in those mail boxes—if It is food or clothing then anybody can knock them down, carry 'em off, or do what he pleases with them. Don't write the poitofficc department to find out what can and can't be done to the mails—write Moscow.

Men can fight bet- In America, Robert Irwin. confessed murderer of three, former inmate of an insane asylum, and no doubt still as crazy now as he was before is going on trial for his life. There is a parallel. As long as nations concentrate on quantity in the birth rate, rather than quality, there will be a constant friction between overcrowded of insane asylums, a constant friction between overcrowded countries, and a standard of human intelligence that is not too complimentary. Ninety percent of American crimes are committed by people who are mentally far down the scale. It was not their fault that they were brought into the world. Perhaps their environment was such that given a handicap of poor mental equipment to start with, the surroundings helped to further get them off in the wrong direction. But until such time as real attention is paid to bettering the breed of the human race—as we constantly strive to do in cattle—we shall have ghastly murders ignorant fights between nations, and a more or less hopeless civilization. The CIO Thugs Anamosa Eureka: We are now over in Michigan in the center of the automobile strike area To our amazement we find the business men in the cities and towns solid against CIO. And furthermore we find the workers at least seventy per cent against CIO The only question in point so far is the recognition by the employer of the right of CIO to be the sole representative of labor. The workers as far as we can find out especially in the automobile industry are anxious for steady work. They are satisfied with their hours of work and the other conditions They are satisfied with their pay but of course would like to have more. But they realize that steady work at a fair wage in much better than to be laid off every now and then on account of a strike and losing that D. E. D. without the periods sounds very much like something deceased. The writer of an Advance column uses those initials, but proves that the periods should be there, by discussing the lively subject of whether or not girls should wear pants . . . we mean the kind men wear. His opinion is that girls look ugly in them, and that it is the frilly, fluffy kind of gal that walks off with the hubbies. Now we don't know just what girls in what variety of costume D. E. D. has witnessed, but we do know that a pair of good slacks, or sports pants (like men wear* can be a most becoming outfit. And we doubt further that it is always the frilly and fluffy (and we might add clinging vine, weak and insipid) kind that get the hubbies. But then—to argue with a fellow columnist is like chasing a butterfly—you get no place. However, we might sponsor a joint style show. Let the Advance take the gals with the frills and the fluff, and The Upper Des Moines will take the ones in pants, and let the public judge their respective merits, attractions and what-not. • * * Next thinic w<> know, he'll be advocating 2-way stretch girdles. • » • That taxi driver who charged an English couple $625 for a tour of the east in his cab for a 21-day trip must have felt it necessary to help even up the M'ore for all Americans, on the slams cast at Wally, across the sea. • • • STORY OF THE WEEK: Several weeks ago, an Algona couple who have a young son just graduated from high school, were invited to the wedding of a brother of the local man in St. Louis. They departed, with n hark seat full of grips, bags and boxes. At their destination they proceeded to register. The ckrk was all smiles; the bellboys were all smiles; the room was full of smiling flowers, and the service wan wonderful. Then came the horrible truth. The brottu-r to be married, of the same name, had received a telegram of congratulations prior to anybody's arrival. When the (Jerk saw the name of the Algona man on the register, he assumed the bride and groom had arrived. The real bride and groom appeared several hours later, and for once the bridegroom was not the object of all the jokes around from there on in. • * » On* of the prettiest at the, just-graduated high school seniors finds that her chief problem is to work in f.ix dates in one evening. • • • A«U now it comes to light that the whoolhouse ileal in which some of the boys tapped a keg of beer, and also a little of the schoolhouse property, has resulted in one of the more dashing young men being confined to quarters from 9:30 p. m. each evening. And the parents of another don't even know he wus in on the deal. any other party who reach knee- ligh in stature, mentally and moral- y, to Franklin Roosevelt. "Between the third term precedent and the welfare of the country, can any patriotic citizen hesitate as o which course he will take? "I am for Franklin Roosevelt for 'resident in 1940, unqualifiedly and finally." "I have never discussed this mater with the president, and this tatement is made without his permission." Thus came the first real 1940 pres- lential news. Not only as an nrd- nt but as a potent New Dcnlcr. overnor Earle's announcement was significant. While mnny people think that either Franklin D. Roosevelt or John L. Lewis wants to run for president in 1940, others think they don't. But there is no difference of opinion about Governor Earle, who. observers iigree, would dearly love the Democratic nomination in 1940. Remarked Senator Wheeler ironically: "Governor Earle reminds me of John Alden. Why not speak for yourself, Governor?" In the largest sense Governor Earle was doing nothing else, and he had four good reasons for his announcement besides getting off an immediate political hot spot— It is a rule of politics that any man who wants to be president must deny that he does; as matters now stand, if any candidate has to take Lhe nomination away from Franklin Roosevelt in 1940, he would be a fool to do so—if he could—for he would tiave no chance of election with Roosevelt nursing a grudge against surprising thing about this record is that there are some 325,000 retail gasoline outlets in the nation, or approximately one for every mile of surfaced highway in the state systems, and every modern-day car is equipped with a gauge."

WHAT I THINK"L WASHINGTON: Emerging after an hour's interview with Franklin Roosevelt, Lady Nancy Astor. visiting the U. S. briefly, interviewed herself for the benefit of ncww- hawks. Her opinion of the U S D ress: "What I think of the American press would never do to print. . . I can see your headlines now 'Lady Astor Slams America' . . . But I don't say 'British Peeress Came Back to Criticize—Because faint true." Lady Astor's opinion of Franklin Roosevelt: "What did I talk to the president about? All sorts of things. I knew him since he was a little boy. I was telling him how remarkable it was for a man so hated to be so free from hate. Don't you think he's hated? You haven't been where I've been since I came ever on this trip." One of 11,000 sailing for Europe a few days later. Lady Astor gave her opinion on U. S. Labor: "What's going on in the United States today is an industrial revolution. Capital is organized and has been organized for years in the United States, and now labor in just starting to organize. Of course you might as well let it organize, as it will organize anyway. Under such conditions you will always find some leaders losing their heads and becoming vain over the power which is theirs." OUT OF GAS—~°~ NEW YORK: With the possible exception of a bight-hiking honeybee, the most exasperating thing In any motori&t's life is to run out of gas. But President Coleman W. Roberts of the Carolina Motor Club reports that a survey of American Automobile Association garages reveals that about 1,500,000 U. S. motorists ran out of gas on the road last year—or half again as many uu in 1935. Says Mr. Roberts: "The MILLIONS FOR CANCER- NEW HAVEN, Connecticut: "My mother died of cancer and my fath- r hns never forgotten it. He has Iways wanted to do something about it. He has established the fund together with another person, who prefers to remain anonymous, as his contribution to the fight against the disease. The fund is created primarily to inquire into the causes of cancer rather than into its cure." Thus last week spoke Starling W. Childs. Jr., In explanation of his father's $10,000,000 donation to Yale University for the establishment of a Jane Coffin Childd Memorial Fund, announced by Yale President James Rowland Augell nt a vast alumni lun';l:t> m m New Haven last week. Advisers of the Childs Fund wi'l be: Yale's Medicine Dean Stanhope Bayne-Jones, a bacteriologist and Rockefeller Foundation protege; his predecessor as dean, Pathologist Milton Charles WInternltz, who at the American Medical convention announced new discoveries about the hardening of the arteries: Rudolph John Anderson, biochemist; Dr. Ross Granville Harrison, biologist, who began the artificial cultivation of living tissues, for which the Rockefeller Institute's Alexis Carrel is more famed; Rockefeller Institute's Francis Peyton Rous, whose discovery of a type of cancer (Rous' sarcoma) which can be transplanted from one chicken to another gave students of cancer a powerful new instrument of research. The Childs donation, whose disbursement these scientists will manage, is precisely the amount which the world's No. 1 cancer authority, Manhattan's Dr. James Ewing, says is necessary to establish an effective cancer study institute.
