GOV. KRASCHEL AND THE TAXPAYERS They were still in doubt when this was written as to whether Governor Kraschel was to be given authority to pay his private secretary J4.500 per year Instead of the $3,000 authorized by the state legislature last winter. The State Comptroller, our Charlie Murtagh, refused to pay the salary of Mr. Kirtley until the attorney general had passed on the legality of the payment. To circumvent the legislature Governor Kraschel had appointed Mr. Kirtley his "executive assistant" instead of "private secretary." As we understand the matter Attorney General Mitchell will have to rule on the power of the governor to change the title and raise the salary of his secretary from $3.000 to $4.500 on his own motion and without regard to the legislature and the poor overburdened taxpayer. If this is possible, we already have an embryo dictator in Iowa. Representative Alesch, a good democrat, made the protest to the governor, and said that "The committee on retrenchment and reform has the power to stop your action and I will ask the attorney general for an opinion." The Harlan News-Advertiser, Gov. Kraschel's home town paper, makes the following comment: "Violation of the law is not a matter to be condoned regardless of the position of the violator. In our opinion, the chief executive of the state should be the one person to observe and maintain the law in its smallest detail—rather than look for loopholes to slip through appointments that make legislative action merely a farce." Governor Kraschel should remember that his popularity with the people of Iowa is not very secure and had it not been for the Roosevelt landslide he •would not have had the meager 2.009 majority he received. The taxpayers have their eye on you, Governor. DIRTY POLITICS Congressman Fred C. Gilchrist, of the Eighth Iowa district, has been seriously ill for the past six months, most of which time was spent in the hospital. Fred is a good republican but at times has supported some of the New Deal measures when he thought they would be of benefit to his constituents and for the general good as well. Last week when ! of Inter- sent back to the house and the president's veto was over-ridden by a vote of 260 to 97 against the veto. Some political enemy of Congressman Gilchrist saw a chance apparently to discredit him with the farmers by saying, all Iowa congressmen opposed the veto "with the exception of Representative Gilchrist, who preferred to be away from the session because of illness." As a matter of fact, although Mr. Gilchrist" was on a sick bed he took pains to see that his vote was registered for the low interest rate by being paired with another congressman. It was certainly i\ dirty trick to say that "he preferred to be absent", tut politics is full of dirty tricks.

Untenable Position Mason City Globe-Gazette: Adherents to the theory that economic recovery Is to be had through government spending in astronomical figures are in a singularly untenable position when they avail themselves of every possible loophole to escape their fair share of the income tax contribution. If limitless spending was the judicious course for America, the presidential family should have been out at the front gate waiting to greet the tax- collector with an overfull sack of money. The rea- onably well-authenticated reports suggest that this was not the case. Quite a contrast there has been between the Mrs. Roosevelt approach to charity and that of the tied nnd branded economic royalist known as John D. Rockefeller. Mr. Rockefeller, who occupies himself almost exclusively with his philanthropies, met the law head-on, contributing some 60 per cent to the government through taxation. Mrs. Roosevelt resorted to a clever though apparently legal evasion. Maybe it reflects a warped sense of moral values, but it strikes us that resort to evasion on the part of those who inspire, enact, administer and profit most politically from lavish public spending is vastly more loathsome than in those who have used every means at their disposal to register their disapproval of the government's attempt to spend itself rich. This may be debatable. But it isn't debatable that the man in public office who employs for himself all the known taxation short cuts is not very effective when he holds up to scorn others—richer or less rich—whose only crime is doing exactly the same thing he does himself. • * * Church and Fair Gambling Titonka Topic: It would seem under the present gambling law. games of chance at the county fair and small town celebrations would be a thing of the past. It is useless to have a law and not enforce it. Such games as poker, chuck luck, black jack and other chance games have been barred at the Indian Day celebrations here for years. It Is not good common sense to allow gambling games during the business days of the week and allow them to run on special occasions. There is enough chances for the gullible to lose their money without bringing it to their doors. The county attorney and other officials have a duty to perform and the letter of the law should be enforced. The Cost of Earhart Search Spencer Reporter: A good deal of rather loose talk has been indulged in lately about the vast expense to which the U. S. government was put in its search for Amelia Earhart The estimates seemed to start at $200,000 or thereabouts and go on up, depending on the enthusiasm of the estimator. Now it is perfectly true that it costs money to send ships like the Colorado and the Lexington off on a cruise. They have large crews and the crews are weil paid. The searching planes burned a good deal of gasoline. All in all. you could make quite a bill out of it. But the thing to remember is that practically all of this expense would have gone on even if there had been no search at all. The Colorado, the Lexington and the other warships were in commission: they would not have been laid up, their fires drawn and their crews paid off. if Miss Earhart had not been lost. A great deal of it would have been spent anyway, in ordinary naval routine. * • • Poor, Brave Amelia Northwoocl Anchor: This writer regrets the sad fate of brave Amelia Earhart and her navigator. So do millions of other people. And millions of people no doubt wonder if in the future a good purpose will not be served if the United States government shall say to other high-spirited adventurers: "Go at your own risk." Of course it is humane to spend $250.000 a day in search for the missing fliers. But Miss Earhart was not on a government mission; she was not seeking to carry out any publicly devised plan for the furtherance of aeronautics. The plain and *Unple fact Is that the daring lady flier was on The MARCH OF TIME •BO. O.«.rAT.OTT. Prepared by the Editor* of TIME The Weekly Newtmaeasine and acclaim before settling down to a sedate life with her wealthy and adoring husband in a comfortable home. The above may sound hard-boiled but it is not intended to be unsympathetic. It Is the expression of a feeling that certain extravagantly dangerous, seemingly impossible and needless feats might better be frowned upon first than mourned about afterwards. * • * New Deal Projects Fail Humboldt Republican: There Is hardly a day passes without the newspapers of the nation carrying accounts of the failure of some government project He-settlement groups planned at it certain price have cost twice the estimate. Houses built for the poor can be occupied only by the rich because their cost marie rents prohibitive to all but the wealthy. Settlement groups have been abandoned by the people for whom they were built. Adventures in attempts to create self-sustaining communities have been left with empty houses. Everywhere the theorists at Die heads of bureaus at Washington have demonstrated their inability to accomplish what they .set out to do. It is all done at the taxpayers expense. * * * Dcmncriits Off The Kc>>er\ iition K i:,:'«' Grove Gazette: Tin.- .scheme In change Ihe .*u;,remc i ourt ha.-, degenerated inlo a rnt-re face 1 avin;;. c;it and do^ n'^ht in the senate.

DEBATE AND DEATHWASHINGTON: Long cues O curious citizens, four abreast am stretching far down the corridors outside the Senate gallery, waited last week to witness one of the biggest and bitterest political fights n a generation: the Supreme Court battle, at last come into the open on the Senate floor. Summoned by the President and given the job of finding a compromise for Frankin Roosevelt's original Court en- argement plan now hopelessly bog- ced down. Senator Joseph T. Robnson was about to offer his substi- ute amendment: — One new Justice or every member of the Court over 5, but not more than one appointment a year. Anticipating bitter opposition, ienator Robinson launched his at- ick first. Then Court bill Advo- atcs Hatch. Guffey. Minton and ..ogan held the floor for three days, •ere sharply and contiuously bait- d with counter attacks by the op- osition. But most of the first eek's argument had little to do 'ith the bill under debate. Deploring the sharp language of the Judiciary Committee's report on the President's bill. Senator Lo?an accused the seven Democrats \vho signed it of ingratitude: "Few of them, perhaps, would be here today . . . but for the friendship of the President of the U. a, but for his magnificent leadership . . ." At this. Senator Wheeler shrilled: •Those of you who rode In on the coat taila of the President will ride out on the coat tails of the President if that Is the only reason you are here." To this rhetorical gall Senator Robinson added the wormwood of breaking an unwritten rule of the Senate: that its written rules nre not rigidly enforced. Some opponents of the Court bill had talked of filibustering to prevent its passage, but Senator Robinson began to use anti- filibuster tactics long before any real filibuster had begun. One neglected rule which he undertook suddenly to enforce was that no Senator shall be permitted to speak more than twice on the same day on any one measure. Senator Pittman took this to mean twice in one "legislative day" anri since the "legislative day" is a fiction which can if necessary be carried on for weeks at a time, this would prevent an extended filibuster. When Postmaster Farley asked newspapermen whether such senators as Nevada's Pat McCarran anrl Wyoming's Joseph O'Mahoney could afforrl to vote against the f 'ourt bill if they ever again expected to corne to him for patronage. Senator Mr •( 'arrari dramatically up- ro.-e from a sickbed a;;ainst his doc| tor's orders to cry: "I think this | ciiu>(; is worthy of any man's life j Not Stnator MrC'arren. however.

To avoid convulsions in Shanghai's speculative gold market, no announcement of the size of this trade was made beyond the Indefinite revelation that would be for a "substantial amount" of gold. YES AND NOWASHINGTON: Ordinarily rel uctant to discuss his stand on labor issues, President Roosevelt nevertheless was specific in answering a question by newspapermen about his attitude toward the formation of unions of Federal employes: May they unionize? Certainly. May they strike? No. May they bargain collectively with the Government? No. REPLY- HYDE PARK, New York: Asked at a session of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Home Town Club in Hyde 'ark whether the President would run for a third term. Mrs. Roosevelt replied: "I hope not." HOPPER HORDE!HUGO, Colorado: Within 24 hours i dusty-gray, endless horde of ;rasshoppers last week destroyed ~iO acres of three-inch green shoots on which Farmer Hutchins of Hugo lad anticipated a 20,000-lb. yield of jeans. Plodding inexorably onward were dozens and scores of 'hoppers to the square foot, millions to the icre, trillions to the ' county. In Washington, Department of Agriculture entomologists declared this he worst grasshopper year since 880. In Colorado, Iowa. Nebraska, Cansas. Montana. Wyoming the Dn- (ota.s. Missouri. Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas and Illinois the damage seemed likely to run close to $100,- WO.OOO. To combat the pests the J. S. Government was laying out ibout $1.350.000 and contributions o the war ches*. by State and local governments brought the total to some $3,000,000. Most effective method of combatt- ing the 'hopper horde la to spread poison bait (bran, sawdust, sodium arena!te), and Colorado Entomologist S. C. McCampbell has designed a mechanical spreader, which, manned by three men, does the work of 25 men with shovels. Some farmers put their faith In the "hopper dozer", a shallow 20-foot tank filled with kerosene, mounted on wheels or runners and pulled along by a horse at each end. Rising from* the back edge of the tank Is a screen of tin or oilcloth which hoppers strike when they leap. This knocks them Into the tank. Although turkeys are known to be great eaters of grasshoppers, the Department of Agriculture declares that even if all the turkeys in the U. S. were concentrated In Nort nnd South Dakota, they could little to stem the grasshopper tld there. Entomologist Orlando S. Bare o Nebraska Agricultural College las week warned farmers in his stat not to relax their poison campaign or they would suffer a double pen ally: continued heavy damage t this year's corn crop, and a heav deposit of eggs to menace nex years. But most of the 462 carload at Federal poison shipped In hai been used up, and many desperat 'armers were paying from their own pockets for bait bought from prlvat lealers. In Colorado, an anti-grass topper council was organized by the state agriculture extension director In Arizona, a state entomologls predicted that the pests would thi year consume much more than th 25 per cent of range grass which they eat in normal years.
