GEOMETRY TAKES THE COUNT Geometry won't have to worry Iowa City high school students this fall—unless they want it- according to a recent announcement of the school board. Upon recommendation of the Iowa City superintendent, the board made the subject elective instead of required. One reason for the change was that the University of Iowa now requires only one year of high school mathematics as a necessity for admittance. Looking back over many a long hour's struggle with geometry and algebra, too, many an older person has wondered just what geometry did for them in the later years of life. With the exception of engineering or allied lines, tfiere really is little excuse for trying to cram the subject into young heads that will never in later years have reason to use it And that reminds us that in a recent examination conducted here for rural school teachers, one of the brighest girls was unable to tell what happened at New London recently, or who Leon Blum was In the current circle of worTd affairs. This young lady was a good student, got good marks, and Is bright in every respect, but her required subjects in the high school had but little room ofr keeping abreast of the terrible gas explosion in a Texas school, or following the affairs of the Republic of France. For those students who will never again have occasion to use geometry, substitution of current events classes, or classes which would deal with present-day problems and affairs—even classes on on marringe—would be much more useful. < Why Not A Lady President? Swea City Herald: During the heat wave last week an enterprising news hawk with more energy than others of his kind suggested Dorothy Thompson, wife of Sinclair Lewis, as a republican candidate for president. Dotty quickly replied: "Absurd. There will never be a woman president." U Dotty would bring to the presidency the same pungent and searching mind she uses in her freelance writing, we, for once should take off our •hirt and work for her. Plainly what our Grand Republic needs right now is debunking on a wholesale scale. We gasp and groan under an overwhelming loqd of scoundrels, crackpotism and plain Idiocy. Sortie forthright person, like Dotty, in there swinging the axe would do us a pile of good. General Hugh Johnson of the late, deplored NRA, is another swell possibility as a Government big-wig. Since the government's attempt to run everybody's business from a hamburger stand to an automobile factory blew up with a loud, bang, the general has accepted the situation with wry good humor, and his burning satire on the current astonishing scene has been a masterpiece. We recommend to fill sober, honest men n searching of the high places for men and women of robust humor and line sensibilities who are thoroughly alarmed at the mess we are in, and who will lead us back to the fields of Abraham. * * • Will Tlie Blur Euicle Return? Clarion Monitor: Many writers view the new wage and hour bill as a return of the blue eagle in a somewhat modified form. It provide* that no one shall work for less than 40 cents per hour nor more than 40 hours (Irifle over fi'v days) per weels. No one ran object to .such a \v;ige scale, but whe.1 we compare the hours of labor with that of a fanner or average business man, there is quite a spread. R<- cept in cases of extremely heavy labor the average man is better olf phy-ically and financially by doing a fair day's work. If passed as proposed the lull will work a hardship on the small business rnan, who is already employing all the clerks his burner-.-; war- runts. CaotiiH Jack Is Foxy Sac Sun: Foxy old John darner.

IJ C. After seeing congress in action a coupl'- of weeks ago Uiis writer is amazed that the government functions as well as it does. Certainly the goings-on m the house of representatives und the senu'i appear to be a furee to the casual observer, but ptrhupa llie real work is done in cuniniiltee rooms and the con- gressiiH'ii's offices. We admire the present congress, for one thing. however, and that is getting rid of the rubber-stamp labtl which has been attached to that body since Roosevelt took office. Of late cujjgrc.^ hits apparently decided it tius a mind of its own and wishes to show i* little authority. W« wish congress had shown Uiis spunk two or three years ago and much of the confusion and waste now going on in Washington could have been avoided. In our opinion this nation needs more than anything else a "breathing spell" during which the country can more or less take care of itself without any aid from Washington. And this can be accomplished only by congress serving as a check on the president and vice versa. Through the democratic South we heard much criticism of the work going on In Washington. The general theme was that the help the first few years was fine, but that the continued relief money was spoiling the citizenry. Instead of tending to their crops the farmers were accepting WPA jobs and letting their land grow up In weeds. "If they would only cut out the relief and WPA and give the country a chance to stand on its own feet," sums up many of the opinions voiced by southern merchants. An undercurrent of dissension is even felt in the nation's capital itself. The friction between congress and the president is coming Into the open more and more and it will only be when our representatives and senators insist upon their rights that much of the waste and many of the unnec- esary bureaus of our government will be abolished. We may then look for return to normalcy. • • • Agentfne Corn Comes to America • Drew Pearson and Robert S. Allen In Kewanee, 111., Star-Courier: Few people are aware of the volume of corn being imported from Agentine these days. Republicans made campaign ammunition of the fact that 34,000,000 bushels were imported in the fiscal year 1934-35. By the end of this fiscal year, the imports of corn will be more than twice that amount. The latest figures for the period of July 1. 1936. through June 15, 1937, show a total importation of 68.000,000. This importation is also Important in another respect. It gives the Argentines a bulging pocket full of dollars to buy Unied States products. There is more dollar exchange lying around in Buenos Aires than they know what to do with. But the Argentine government has a hand clasped around the mouth of the money bags. They impose a 20 per cent exchange surcharge on importations from the United States. This means that an American typewriter or sewing machine must sell 20 per cent cheaper to compete with a British product Secretary Cordell Hull is fighting this surcharge which he privately calls a discrimination against the United States. Thus far, however, he has failed. Meantime, corn Is arriving in United States ports at the rate of 2,500,000 bushels a week. • • • Should Face the Music Ackley World: Senator Gillette, senior senator from Iowa, has quit Washington, D. C., and, with his family has returned to his home at Cherokee, Iowa. An old and quite threadbare phrase runs: "He who fights and runs away, lives to fight another day." Judging by the evdience Gillette hardly comes under the classification of a "fighter." When fate and misfortune cut short the life of Senator "Louie" Murphy, and gave another inexperienced and untried the right to wear the purple robe, not only Iowa Democracy but the entire state suffered. Some of our republican newspapers are going out of their way to endorse Gillette's attitude; they'd support him: yes, in a pig's eye. It is "cheap" endorsement: not even good politics—professing admiration, the higher-ups of the g. o. p. would like nothing better than to cut his throat, politically, and get democrats to fight among themselves. Elected to serve, he should not shirk responsibility, smooth salesmen who call on the residents in their homes they are able to lure many dollars away. Certainly the towns have or should have the right to make such peddlers pay a license that will in a degree meet the taxes and overhead that goes with the possession of a local business. • » » Labor Agitating A Paying Racket Anamosa Eureka: We noted some time ago that John L. Lewis had purchased a house in Washington. D. C.. even better than the one purchased by Andrew Mellon. Now we learn that Lewis has purchased a historical mansion in Alexandria for $27,000 and is going to spend $30.000 remodeling it. He already owns another home in Alexandria. We have no ax to grind with CIO nor with what they pay their leader, but It looks to us as though the leaders were getting the money and the laborer is being thrown out of work by strikes. A dollar a month from several million members runs into a lot of money and we know It does when CIO put $450,000 in President Roosevelt'B campaign fund and then the leader buys two fine homes running up to a hundred thousand dollars in one summer.

S. Government bought it rom Russia. Payment for this colossal real-estate coup was made by 1 check on the Treasury signed by U. S. Treasurer Francis Ellas Spinner, drawn to the order of Russian Minister Edward de Stoeckl and lated Aug. 1, 1868. When Alaskan Delegate to Con- :ress Anthony Dimond last week sked permission to transfer the heck to Juneau for permanent dis- lay in its Historical Library.

After iree days' frantic search, the Alas- an check turned up in a musty •awer of the General Accounting office where it had reposed since 1921* But by this time the Scnnt-3 Committee on Territories and Insular Affairs derided that since tho check (a piece of national property) was so easily lost, it would be better to send a photostatic copy to Juneau and send the draft itself, (or safekeeping In th? brand-new National Archives Building, A «,tory in making the roumln about a letter recently sent by a Kossuth farmer to Sears Roebuck & Co.: "Mease send me one of them gasoline engine you advertise on page 7*s5 and if it's any pood I'll send you n check."

LIES- WASHINGTON:, Circulating briskly in Washington last week was a lively White House anecdote which, whether or not true, concerned fiery Genera! Hugh S. Johnson, whose columns in Scripps- Howard newspapers have lately been devoted almost exclusively to flaying the administration. Called into Franklin Roosevelt's office, General Johnson found half a dozen of his recent columns spread on the President's desk. Said the President, underlining sentences in the columns: "Hugh, that's a lie . . . that's a lie ... that's a lie . . ." Said General Johnson: "Mr. President, you are the only man in the United States who can call me a liar and get away with it." "RALKIOH" ROMANCES— VILLEFRA.N'CHE. France: Married to four good-natured French girls by the mayor of Villefranche one afternoon last week were four members of the crew of the U. S. Cruiser "Raleigh", on independent duty in the Mediterranean, thus bringing to 1.1 the season's total of weddings among the "Raleigh" crew. A 16th wedding was postponed becau.sed Seaman Charles Hhapperly of Haw River, N. C., had neglected to post his banns ten days in advance, and the "Raleigh" sailed for Marseille. Main feature of "Raleigh" romances has been that, since none of the brides could speak English and none of the bridegrooms French all have been conducted in a "sign language", about the efficacy of which, through an interpreter, biides and bridegrooms last week were equally enthusiastic. Said Bridegroom Joseph Lionel Aichainbriu'l of Pittseld, Mass. "I don't understand a word she is | talking about but . . . everything j .In- nays is O. K. . . . " Said Mme ! Aivhambaiid: "When he asked rne ! to marry him. I understood right : r.vay . . " Said Seaman Shapperly j who plain to marry Yvonne Jeanne I < lagelia > before leaving France, take | ha, k to hi.s home in Haw River. N IS: "I'll soon have my sweetie talk- in;; hillbilly instead of sign language." One "Raleigh" bridegroom under age. wired home for permission to marry, got back a cable 'Good luck. Can't be much worse than one you had here." FKEK 8TVIJC— PALERMO Italy: As is soldiers and mules lugged at gun carriages under a hoi Sicilian sun in Italy's annual war games last week, bar- rel-chested II lJuce, nattily deekec out in blue trunks, stood on a rock at Syracuse and umpired a free-style swimming race among cabine members and under-secretanes. I.ABOK 8HOHTAGE— BERLIN. Germany: The month that Adolf Hitler came into power in 1U33, German unemployment hac reach the total of 6,013.000 within ten percent of its all-time high. On Aug. 1 there were only 563.000 reg istered unemployed in Germany— u drop of BiJ.GOo during July. These few facts are the one outstanding economic achievement of the Hitler Government. Though most Germans are quick to admit that 90 percent of it is due to rearmament and the sudden expansion of the German Army, that achievement is the secret of Hitler's popularity at burnt. Though Nazi authorities have seen to it that important munitions plants be well supplied with help, an actual labor shortage exists in several agricultural districts and •smaller industrial centres. This fact was last week grim news for many a solvenly business clerk, for Adolf Hitler's personal newspaper "Volkischer Beobachter", gave intimations of a new Nazi plan: to have Government agents comb the personnel of banks, business houses department stores, newspapers, and to ship all white-collar worker "not fitted for commercial employment" out to work as common laborers in factories and fields. UEVENGE— BREMBISEN, France: When her pig bit her on the leg, vengeful Mme. Heno of Brembisen set fire to the straw on which the pig was lying. The pig and the entire village of five houses burned up. MEN VS. WOJIEN— NEW YORK: Issued by the American Automobile Association last week were the results of a survey of 10.000 persons between 20 and 40 years old in 35 U. S. cities proving clearly that men are better drivers nan women. They could withstand >8 units of light, whereas women could withstand only 55.1 and could recover in 5.55 second from glare vhich blinded women for 7.47 seconds. Other tests indicated that rnen generally have quicker reactions, better hearing, better concentration when at the wheel, although women drive more slowly, distinguish colors better, have bet- :er vision from the corner of the •ye. Quipped Safety Director Bur:on W. Marsh, who conducted the ests: "The ladies may not find it actful to cite that men have higher blood pressure, because the men might say it's caused by women drivers." UQCOR RULING— TRENTON, New Jersey: " 'Get Lit at the Lighthouse' U no fit sign to hang outside a saloon. If I allowed you to get nway with it we should be flooded with signs such as 'Get Soused at Sousa's'. Stewed at Stuart's', or 'Pie-eyed at the Pianola.' " Thus did New Jersey's $13,000-a- year publicity-wise State Alcoholic Beverage Control Commissioner D. Frederick Burnett last week rule on the question of fit signs for bars. Anxious to please the press, Commissioner Burnett seldom lets a week go by without turning out on his mimeograph at least one newsworthy wisecrack ruling. Some of his decisions which set u new high in liquor control: When a bartender was accused of using a baseball bat on an unruly patron's head: "It is a crime, but not moral turpitude." Of a nude picture over a bar: "The painting i» mediocre, the color Hat, the style eclectic and the subject trite . . . 'buti this picture is not obscene. Therefore I shall not order its removal." When an Italian saloonkeeper was accused of advertising his place as "Muldoon's": "It is a subtle compliment to the Irish." On Mulligan, a concoction of whiskey, gin, beer or ale with dry red peppers: "I do not think offhand of any objection if some one wants his beer a la Tobasco." On keeping whiskey chilled in summer: "You may ktep it on ice On Glogg, a Swedish drink containing port wine, red wine, brandy, almonds, raisins: "... Sounds to me like a typographical error .' On tear-gas to stop bar-room lights: "The use of such extreme measures is ill-advised. A bung- starter, strategically displayed, usually suffices." Algona Upper Des Moines Algona, Iowa.

Algona, Iowa From one of the prominent mot or vehcle police in an eastern utate came the statement that the majority of accidents can be traced to the driver who i» violating the law. To some drivers law observance doesn't seem to mean anything at all. This type must be forced to obey the laws. Education has no effect on them. Their code U not: "What Is the law"? but "What can I get away with?" It is the latter that the officer refers to, no doubt, and he is right. We need belter law enforcement on our highways. What would happen if our railroads, steamship lines, and other companies were as weak in enforcing safety regulations as some of our stales are in enforcing safety regulations on our highways?
