THE HUNT FOR AMELIA The only wonder about the unfavorable reaction to the massed search for Amelia Earhart by the U. S. Navy is that it did not occur sooner. At a cost of $250.000 per day. all naval vessels and planes in the area where the plane was lost have been looking for the two American flyers. It is true, however, that in ail probability the cost would be about the same anyway, whether they were looking for Miss Earhart or doing something else. But it is also true that the entire stunt of circling the globe was more or less a publicity proposition. Miss Earhart's husband, It has been stated, was waiting in California ready to take down notes of the trip and rush them into print in a special book, which the couple figured should sell like hot cakes after the publicity given the flight. Just what could have been gained from the trip, even if successful, we are in no position to judge. Perhaps there would be some contribution to the progress of aviation. It would undoubtedly have given Miss Earhart lasting fame in aviation's hall of heroes. But as long as the U. S. Navy can be summoned for emergency work such as that in the Pacfic, It Is reasonable to expect that similar unnecessary trips will be attempted, and other lives lost. SAFETY RECORD BROKEN For six months and 11 days, Kossuth county went without a fatal motor tragedy. Sunday the accident happened that took the first life in Kossuth county this year from an auto crash. Every motorist has, at times, found himself wondering just what might happen if something should suddenly go wrong with his machine. Or if an approaching car should suddenly go out of control. We then try to turn our thoughts away from the unpleasant subject as quickly as possible. And so it was Sunday, as that something happened which brought two machines together, with loss of life. Let us hope that Kossuth can go for another six months without another such tragedy. The Public Did It Estherville News: A split between President Roosevelt and C. I. O. leader, John Lewis is rumored. If there is anything to the divorce aroused public opinion is responsible, for until the American people began to object to the activities of communists and Mr. Lewis' radical bomb throwers there apparently was no concern shown in Washington. Now it has been demonstrated that un-Americantsm definitely is unpopular and the administration had to scramble to save its face. Mr. Lewis finds, perhaps, that his power and his |nf!i)cr,ce are slipping. * t » Nobody to Look Out for Taxpayer* Wright County Monitor: It is doubtful if Governor Kraschel can put hia "Jim Farley" bluff over on the people of Iowa. The law fixes the salary of his assistant at $3.000 per year and the last legislature refused to increase the amount. In order to override the law the governor changed the title of his secrttary to that of executive assistant and proposes that the taxpayers foot a salary bill of S4500. It is charged that this same scheme has already enabled one good Democratic friend of the governor to draw more pay than the legislature stipulated. The governor is going too far. • • • Gillette'* Courage Estherville News' There continues tri be some talk in newspaper circles about opposition which Senator Gillette will have for re-election, presumably because of hi.s attitude toward the move to pack the supreme court. Lightweights such us Gov. Kra.ii hi-l anrl Leo J Wegman are named as possible contenders for the senator's' job, the qualification recommending both of them being that they always waltz when Jirn Fa-ley claps his hands together. It is pointed out that Mr. Gillette is not a democrat to be depended upon —he is likely to use his own judgment once in a while. Hut that circumstance which leads the democratic; press to stir up opposition against this court packing opponent is the very strongest recumrnend- sition Mr. Gillette could have. The talk about Iowa disapproving Gillette's attitude is funny. There are parts of the new (leal which are thoroughly acceptable to what may still be a majority of lowan.s. That does not mean that tht-y also favor packing tile court or letting the <.'. 1. ft. run the country. * w • Herring I» Cuutiou* Hiimnnldi Independent: Senator Herring has announced that he is for a modification of President Roosevelt's supreme court plan The senator wailed patently until the boys had all lined up and and then climbed leisurely on the band wagon. At that he (limbed on caiitioii>ly and now sitting a-Mraddlu of the whole tiling. Clyde is a caution > fellow.

As lit- hurried to hi.s seat the teacher who was a sut-et young thing, ,-^aid: "I see you're behind Johnny " Johnny grabbed tor the seat of his pant.^ and muttered: "That d -d pin must have slipped." * * • Should Cut Huuse Membership Webster City Freeman: The national house of representatives now numbers 435 ami the senate M. There is no way under the constitution to reduce the membership of the senate unless e.u h slate is given only one senator. Under the con.-ititution no state etui be denied equal representation in tile senate without its consent. But the senate is not as unwieldy as the houac. In the of economy urid to expedite business the house membership should be materially reduced. Why not • ut the membership lo 200 or 250? Each stale would then have the same comparative strength as now if 2'.'.!, members were lopped off. there would be a saving of $2..':50.000 in salaries alone, besides the cost ol mile- u>:< .-it-tietaiy hire, and other iiKidcntalj would be 10: : i: |..jndinvly reduced.

"And now," says young Chris, "I've got to work a week and a half in this kind of weather for nothing." But he'll get it back playing golf. * * * Well, we guess the painters' strike Is all settled. We see the boys going about their business as usual. * • • One young couple of onr acquaintance spent a profitable and educational Sunday. Touring Call State Park, they counted the number of people at picnic tables and having picnic parties. Then they went to the park gate, and stopped all cars coming into the park for an hour, asked them how much potato salad they had. and how much bologna, and estimated the quota per person. Calling arithmetic into play, they then figured out how much potato salad and bologna was being consumed in the park. They now declare that if all the bologna was laid end to end, It would reach from east to west across the county, and that the potato salad would fill the swimming pool, whose cubic foot measurements they also obtained. • • • Now If they could Just put pedometer* on all the dancers at the next Country Club dance, and measure the miles everyone travels, we'd be getting somewhere. * • » LITTLE ITEMS FROM STATE STREET— Beulah Larson from Neville's with two ice cream cones, and she wouldn't divvy up, either . . .

Although Clark tables and Myrna Loy'.s accents beera out of place, there are enough voices with genuine brogue and faces with the map of Ireland on them to convey a strong Irish feeling to the movie. And there is enough historical background to make one forget the romance which incidently resembles the recent English episode. The effect of the picture is to make one turn to hooks of history to improve one's knowledge. The mo.-,t dramatic scene is the defense sequence in the trial. Artistically considered, the movie falls far short uf 'The Informer." another Irish picture hut we warrant it is far more popular with the crowds. There are too many profiles in "Parnell." To mention one instance, when I'arnell and Katie were standing talking to each other, both in profile, both could have been turned three-quaters- Katie facing and f'arnell with back lo i atnera. This would have given depth and perspective to the i ompuhition of the picture. Hut one n.ust say in fairness that Hollywood does hislorical and spectacular pictures exceedingly well, with the most careful attention to authenticity. One is reminded again of "Lloyds nl London" shown not .so long before the Coronation. .Some time after this picture. "March of Time" .showed actual pictures of the present Lloyds and told something of its history. It -shortened time and .space to a great degree. The. episode of Nelson's victory tied in with other pictures .seen in any number of years. In thi.5 way. movies cease to be passing entertainment and become more real than the textbooks we ttudy at one time or another. * * * "Kumeo and .Juliet" aside from being M very sincere production of a Shakespeare play, wa.-, a magnificent reproduction of the pageantry in days of Italian glory. It m unfortunate that so many people do not care for this kind of picture. Hut they want their romance to end happily and they prefer Hobert Taylor to the superior technique of a Leslie Howard, and hte more enticing prettiness of a Jean Harlow to the real beauty of Norma Shearer and her her sympathetic c haraclenza- tion. • • • The Ui-a Moillen Register prilltn all editorial this morning.

Prepared by the Editors of TIME The Weekly Newtmagmine ACCIDENT RECORD- NEW YORK: The grim records of last year's accidents in the U S., just published by the Natlona Safety Council, reveal that during 1936 one accident occurred every three seconds (total 10,730,000), anc one accidental death every five minutes (total 111,000). Wages lost on account of accidents amounted to $2,000,000,000. and other losses and expenses increased this to $3,700,000,000. As in past years, the scene of most U. S. accidents in 1936 was the home, in which 38,500 people died as a result of electric shocks, scaldings, poisonings, burns, cuts from kitchen utensils, slipping in bathtubs. On the highways, traffic accidents caused 37.800 deaths. Most dangerous state to live in was Arizona. Best record was that of children from 5 to 14. The hurry of better business caused the deaths of 18,000 workmen, an increase of 1,500 over 1935. Fourth of July celebrations no longer are a major cause of accidents. This year's holiday-week end deaths totaled 437 in 46 states; 104 drownings. 247 traffic deaths, 86 others including six from fireworks. BURNWASHINGTON: In the House of Representatives' Cloak Room, Pennsylvania Congressman James P. Mc- Granery tried to set off a firecracker under Arkansas Congressman Claude A. Fuller, held it too long, got a badly burned hand. ANTKMOTHBALLERS— PHILADELPHIA: Echoing many another earnest denominational organ, the Protestant Episcopal "Chronicle" last week deplored "People do not attend church In the summer months. This seasonal lull seem* ... to defy solution." In Philadelphia, however, whert he heard his secretary observe that many local churches were being "put in mothballs", lively Rev. John Robbing Hart of St. Stephen's Episcopal church promptly propagandized among his colleagues for an Anti-Mothball Society. By last week he had more than a score of participating churches busily organizing, besides steady services, interdenominational stunt nights. At St. Stephen's stunt night, the Anti- Mothball unit ceremoniously dumped bugs of mothballs over the floor of the Community House, and recited a funeral ode. Dr. Hart also found time to play left field in 12 games last rnnoths with his semiprofessional baseball team (Jack Hart's Collegian i, to perform 30 weddings. In Los Angeles. I'aator C;irl Allen of Woodcrest Community Methodist church got the approval of his governing board to change the .Sabbath service to Thursday evening, explained: "The residents of this community are working every possible day to make up for the worry during the Depression ... I believe Ihey should be free to go to the bench or mountains Sunday without feeling it is wrong . . . Jesu^ i consistently taught that man was to have preference over any creed, custom, dogma or law." That U. S ihurch membership is increasing fabler than the population is revealed in the annual statistical report of "Christian Herald", which points out that there are 'i6.4!».'i.0.'16 church members in the land—or 837.404 more than last year; that the rate of increeasc was 1.33'f us compared to .1\'\ for population. Biggest churclies are the Roman Catholic I'MMl.l'.t'ji, (10,332,0051. Methodist I9.109.3i9i. Lutheran <4.5ha,660i. Biggest Protestant gams were registered by the Baptists (140.3081 and the Kefonn- cd Church (81 95(s>. The Church of Christ, Scientist, and the Jewish bodies reported no change. Small churches lend to grow faster than big ones Denominations with u membership of in ore than Ml,000 gained an average of 1.1',? while ie.sber beets "reached the astonishing figure of 29.49V;." Ltist year 49.43'f of the population was "af- lilaled with some c hurch." as compared to 46.6'f in 1926. Over its n'Kuivs the "Herald" exulted: "A direct contradicliun to pessimists who claim the churches have lout ground " -«— t'OFKEE t HOP— SANTOS, iiiazil: Because the only way to keep coffee expensive enough to suit growers is to burn it in big. mounds. Brazil's National Cojfee Department has :,ince 1931 sent i250.000.000 worth of Hiazil'ft chief crop up in smoke. Estimating thai this year's bumper crop of 2U.OOO.OOO sacks (132.2 Ibb. apiece i would leave a 10,000,000-suck <ur|;lu.j to add lo the accumulation already on hand, the Department last Week announced that it would buy 10',i of the crop to bum. Thus, the daily burning quota will go up from 60.000 to 100,000 sacks, the daily cost to Government and growers up to $620,000. SCHOOLS AND GOVERNMENTDETROIT: To 1,300 delegates and 12,000 vacationing members of the National Education Association assembled for NEA's 75th or "diamond" convention in Detroit last week, Chairman Floyd W. Reeves of President Roosevelt's Advisory Committee on Education presented facts and figures to show how good a friend of education Franklin Roosevelt is:—The Federal Government spent over $21,800,000 to keep rural schools open in 1934 and 1935, loaned $84.271.000 through PWA, spent another $213,832,000 for school buildings and repairs up to the end of 1936. The National Youth Administration had 435,000 needy students on its lists, WPA had given work to 42.000 unemployed teach- erS, there have been 1,500,000 youngsters in the CCC. But since NEA's pet Harrison- Black-Fletcher bill, providing up to $300,000,000 a year in Federal school subsidies to the states, had this year been sidetracked by the President in his economy message to Congress, Ohio's fiery Representative Brooks Fletcher uprose at the convention to explain: "When the richest nation on earth permits seven million—nearly a third—of its school children to be taught by a quarter million teachers who receive less than $750 a year, and 30,000 poverty-stricken teachers who receive less than $450 a year, there is need for an awakening of civic pride in the discharge of obligations to the children." The convention once more resolved to plump for the Harrlson-Black- Fletcher bill, encouraged NEA's adult education section to strike Congress for another $25,000,000 to eradicate illiteracy.

Is it any wonder that almost fifty per cent of the automobile fatalities are caused by pedestrians? Of course, the pedestrian has some rights and he should exercise those rights. There is no right under high heaven that allows the pedestrian to cross In the middle of the block, to come from behind parked cars, or to jay-walk at corners. He takes his life In his own hands and Is subject to the mercy of the automobile driver who does not see him and cannot control the pedestrian's actions. When we come to the realization that we must walk right and In the proper place, then we will have an opportunity to make a big cut Into the automobile fatalities In the nation.
