BOOSEVKLTS FAIB WEATHER FRIENDS Fair weather friend*, It would seem, are not only the lot of Mr. and Mrs. Average Citizen, but ateo are to be found In the ranks which have surrounded Frank Delano Roosevelt during his White House regime. With the defeat of his Supreme Court Plan as originally proposed, storm signals have gone up In many offices in Washington. When Roosevelt was In the saddle, and had the steed mighty well under control, few were the voices raised against him. Let it be to the credit of L. J. Dickinson, whether one is agreed or not politically, that be made his stand dear about matters in the beginnings of the New Deal, and stuck by his guns thereafter. Some of the members of Congress, many jmlled into office on the Roosevelt coat-tails, have followed meekly through the past few years, letting Roosevelt take the Initiative In major reforms—and also take the chances of unfavorable recatlon if plans miscarried. Now some of them, in view of the very evident anti-Court Plan sentiment, have begun to show signs of being only "fair weather friends" indeed. If they believe that popular sentiment is really swinging away from Roosevelt, they will be the first to decry the manner In which he has "dominated" them. As a matter of fact they have, for the most past, had a good vacation with pay and let Roosevelt and his intimate advisers do the work and the worrying. And in the meantime, Supreme Court Plan defeat or not, there will be millions of us in the Middle West who will not turn out to be "fair weather friends", but will remember with admiration and respect a leader who for the first time "did something about agriculture" when "doing something" was sorely needed. ' No thinking man could agree with every phase of the administration's last term and this one. But from the many attempts to bring a vast, unwieldy and cumbersome governmental machinery Into high speed production made by Roosevelt, have come some ideas that are here to stay. Every army has its deserters, so will Roosevelt's ranks have plenty, especially when they may feel hut public support Is slipping. And in the meantime If any of the big shots have any better ideas let them trot them out for public scrutiny. Several of the total fatten of young nearlng their twenties or perhaps already there, held a council of war the other morning, and decided to inform their offspring that they (the fathers) had just finished raising a brood of youngsters, and would not In the least be made happier by having the young men bring home any daughters-in-law to join the family circle, at least for the time being. • • • Our Whittemore scout reports that Billy Hilt- gins was blushing vividly after the Upper Des Moines arrived last week with tidings of a romance brewing for the young editor . . . but so far he has not denied It ... at least to us, and we saw him the day after the paper was out, too. • • • Friend Lewis says he Is going to organise everybody that works for the government into one big union. He should start with the taxpayers. • • • One of our exchanges from Texaa sends us a letter asking how we get that way—throwing a Watermelon Day way up here in Iowa. Alas, Poor Ray, I Knew Him Well Swea City Herald: This newspaper's identification number under the social security act is 420655490. We have not yet been finger-printed, nor has our striped uniform arrived yet, but of evenings we are practicing the goose step down in our back yard to be prepared for complete regimentation. Since we are one of those despised tory republicans and economic royalists, we must go out and find a poor under-privileged man and put our foot on his neck. Modes have the habit of potting out productions that either make awful bums or awful heroes out of the newspaper folks, when they are neither. Speaking of movies—"Captains Courageous" was far better than advertised, while "Saratoga" was much under expectations. • • • IB on« of the local boaineaa houses there Is going to be a great surprise when the telephone bill comes In ... after hours, two lads dropped In and developed a long distance phone calling complex ... the climax was a call to San Francisco. • • • Barney Frankl proved to be master of the situation at the Des Moines ball game here, Sunday . . . Barney barked away at Del Bissionette, manager of the Demons, and former big leaguer, until the latter finally got up and took a turn at the plate . . . and just to show Barney he could do it, he slapped out a single. • • • Young Julie ChrischlUes should remember Wect Bend well for some Ume ... on the Watermelon Day booster trip last week, Julie had opened the door on bis side of the car after reaching the town, for ventilating purposes ... the driver made a U-turn in the procession, and Julie landed flat on the sit-down portion of his anatomy In the dusty street. . . . but he came up unhurt and smiling. • • • Speaking of West Bend—They have a new, modern hotel with cafe in connection, that would be a credit to AJgona. • • • WOULDNT IT BE WISE IF— The government, both national and local, would really get tough with this dishing out of relief money (especially when farmers could not get enough hired hands for harvest time). Some effort would be honestly made to weed out the unnecessary governmental employees, and those remaining placed on a merit rather than political basis. We widened Nebraska and Call streets, parallel to State, so about twice as many cars could be parked. :«•**, 4 • • • Famous Last Line—A little tonic on the eyebrows, Mr. Lewis? Should Pass Law to Make Us All Rich Bell Plalne Union: Since it seems to be a popular belief now that man can be made happy, and wealthy, or at least socially secure, through legislation why not simplify the matter by having the college professors at Washington draft a bill that would make it unlawful to lose money during a depression?

Prepared by the Editor* of TIM B Th» Weekly Newtmaiottnt "NO TALK OF DEMOCRACY"— MADRID:. After his forces had broken at Brunete the Loyalist of- ensive launched "to raise the Siege f Madrid", Rebel President Franisco Franco resumed his offensive against Santander, started another drive against Loyalist positions 100 miles east of Madrid, and then turn- o statecraft, forming a cabinet of even ministers, five of them gen- rals. To Spaniards the name of Genral Martinez Anldo as Minister of nterior, in charge of police, meant that any last vestige of possible ompromise with Spain's Commun- sts. Anarchists and Socialists had «en deliberately wiped out by the Ughtists. Martinez Anido was Vice Premier under the late Span- sh Dictator Don Miguel Primo de tivera, suppressed with hundreds of executions the proletarian uprising in Barcelona when he was Captain-General of Catalonia. At Pamplona two Frenchmen were arraigned before a Rebel court martial in what was called the first actual trial on charges of spreading disease germs in warfare. The Court noted their confession that they had been paid $3,750, Inspected tubes found on them said to contain typhoid and sleeping sickness germs and viruses, sentenced them to death. But President Franco delayed the French men's execution "pending an International Inquiryv" With Spain's civil war lin its 13th month, neither side had yet used poison gas; but of the current outlook in Spain Correspondent William F. McDermott of Norn American Newspaper Alliance last week wrote:— " I should guess, on the baa is of what is clear to the eyes here that a Franco victory will result in the creation of the most radical Fascist State that the world has known. A Valencia (Leftist) victory is similarly likely to end in the institution of a Communistic State that will make Russia look like a haven of econmic royalists.

Letts Creek Hews 8**** Street, Algona, Iowa *0»er Barry's" STRIKES AND SETTLEMENTS- NEW YORK: In the middle of the feature "Kid Galahad," at the early show at Manhattan's little Greenwich Theatre one evening last week, the lights came on suddenly the picture faded from the screen and the sound equipment boomed "Attention, please, ladies and gentlemen. This is the motion picture operator speaking to you from the booth. There is no trouble with the equipment and no cause for alarm. I am using this means to protest to you against the inhuman working conditions in this theatre. I work seven days a week, eleven and one- half hours a day, have no vacations, no rest. I eat in the booth where the heat is sometimes unbearable. The management refuses to listen." Having locked themselves in their projection booths with food and water for a sit-down, the two operators thus announced their strike by playing on the sound equipment a record prepared in advance, an idea originated by the business agent of I-oca! 306 of the Motion Picture Machine Operators' Union (A. F. of U) Two other operators did the same thing in another Manhattan theatre (run by the same corporation) the same night. Their demands were met by 6 o'clock the following morning. In Detroit a temporary injunction was issued last week restraining the Waiters, Waitresses and Cooks Union from "packing" Brennan, Fitzgerald and Sinks cafeterias. Packing consists of buying coffee, occupying all the chairs in a restaurant. Branded by the Steel Workers Organizing Committee as "Inexcusable" last week was a recent wildcat sit-down of 43 unionists in Allegheny Steel Co's Brackenridge, (Pa.) plant. Jealous of its record as a responsible party to labor contracts, S. W. O. C. promptly recommended that the company dock the wildcatters a week's pay. Busily tugging the teats of some of her husband's cows last w««k was Mrs. Carla d« Vries. George d« Vries 1 1,000-cow Vitamin D Dairy In Norwalk near Los Angeles was strike bound by C. I. O.'a Dairy Worker's Union. Plodding up and down the picket line led by a striking herdsman watt a placid Jersey cow bearing the placard: "I Won't Be Milked by a Scab." "TO SKZA*"— NEW YORK: A precept which black, benign Major J. ("Father") Divine, Harlem cultigt. enjoins upon his followers is that all btolcn goixla should be returned to their rightful owneri, all old debt* be paid to creditor*. Since Father Divine attained a following many a U. 8. merchant, especially In the South, has testified that many a black man's long-forgotten debt has. indeed been liquidated. In Harlem last week one Famaca Real, a Divine follower, took pen and paper and laboriously composed a letter. She had once purchased goods on credit In Pittsfield, Mass., could no longer recall the merchant's name. So to all the shopkeepers of that city Famaca Real wrote asking that one Sezar get in touch with her. Said she: "I am asking you to reply so as to pay my former bill. I want to pay It as Father Divine says pay to Sezar what belong to Sezar and to God what belongs to God." (Said Jesus Christ to the Pharisees: "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's."—Matthew 22:21). --O— RESCUED HEROESLONDON: Many a lean British Cavalry officer and many a ruddy fox-hunting squire exploded apop- lectlcally last week as they thumbed through the "Illustrated London Newm" and «*w a Mrira of pto« tures of old, crippled, starved horses almost too decrepit to stand, all ol whom had done gallant war-time service. Most pitiable were two photographs of a famished, broken- kneed old black mare which had once seen proud service with the llth Hussars, a bay cavalry gelding with "all his joints gone and very lame in the near-fore and near-hind." They were two survivors of 80,000 British Army horses and mules sold by the British Government in 1919, put to work in mines, hitched to produce-wagons and canal-barges. Coming on these pictures most Britons were more convinced than ever that "no damned Froggie knows how to treat a horse." Year ago Britain's Our Dumb Friends' League—a be-klnd-to-an- imals organization founded in 1897 and supported by voluntary contributions launched a campaign to rescue from the Continent any of these horses that had survived. The league had little difficulty in tracing them because each bears an identifiable army mark. Moreover, a noted Belgian animal lover, the Dowager Duchess DeCroy, provided the league with a list of all the old horses in Belgium. Whenever the league finds a British war horse and has enough money on hand, they buy it for about $100, take it to the league's stables in Brussels, put the horse to grass for perhaps the first time in 18 years, later sends It to Britain to be "pensioned off" in some country paddock. By last week 25 had been rescued out of an estimated BOO survivors throughout France and Belgium. Many of the 25 were blind, many carried scars of the battlefield, all were in miserable shape. Long- starved, the horses had to be prevented from disastrous over-eat- Lotts Creek defeated Tltonka In a ball game Sunday by a score of 10 to 7.
