BLACK CERTAINLY UNDER A CLOUD President Roosevelt's new appointee to the Supreme Court is getting away to anything but nn auspicious start in his career on the bench. In fact despite his radio address, he Is most certainly under a cloud. That all the political furore possible was made by opponents of the administration is to be expected. That is the law of the game of politics. The question of Justice Black's Klan membership in some of the more partisan press has gone Into almost a. frenzy. And the resulting publicity will probably tend to revive an organization that was practically dead, at least north of the Mason-Dlx- on line. The magazine Fortune's survey of public feeling toward President Roosevelt shows that he has lost ground among all classes. The Black appointment will not help the situation any. He will probably losamore prestige. It Is more or less to be expected. No president can go through two terms, building up enmity all along the way. and come to the end of his second term with the same solid support he had at the beginning, of the game. Justice Black's membership In the Klan 15 years ago in Alabama can be no great surprise. Fifteen years ago in most southern states, a big majority of the white men of the section belonged to the Klan. .Today, the Klan does not hold the same position that it held 15 years ago, even in the south. Through its own membership in less intelligent brackets, its activities drove from its ranks the more intelligent and better element, who in many instances joined it like "people have a- tendency to Join any organization that seems to be booming. It Is a safe guess that nine out of ten political office holders in the south have at one time belonged to the Klan. and probably many still do. Justice Black is on the bench; should be survive possible Impeachment proceedings, he will have many opportunities to show whether or not he is bigoted. Intolerant, and prejudiced, as his enemies have charged. We believe that his record on the Supreme Court will eventually write into the archives of history, whether or not his appointment was a wise one or a. terrific mistake. They tetl ns that there In a story behind that nice row of apple trees on highway 18 between Sexton and Wesley, just south of the railroad tracks. It seems that in the day when the highway was built, Julius Kunz, who owned the land, planted those apple trees there, because there was a U. S. law against cutting down apple trees, and he didn't want the highway cutting his land into two parts. Another report that will Interest local women concerns the naming of the bride In the movie cooking school. "The Bride Wakes Up", shown here last week. It seems that one of the technical advisers of the production, a home economics expert, knew Julia Bourne quite well in Chicago, and when the casting and selection of names for the show occurred, she suggested that the bride be called Julie—so that's how It happened. Miss Bourne is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Bourne of Algona. * • * Between Omer Kelly down at Creighton and Virginia Morck at the University of Minnesota, it can truthfully be said that Algona is being "put on the map", especially In undergraduate circles. • * * Shame on Boxholm, Iowa—they have no water system there. Bill Spencer is working down in Miami, Fla., and Lloyd Bohannon, who went to the Pacific Coast recently, is employed by Remington-Rand, according to reports reaching this office. Will someone explain the sense of putting up highway signs at the edge of towns of one or two hundred, directed at outgoing motorists, which'- read "Residence District—Speed Limit 25 Miles." And vou look down the highway for miles without seeing a sign of a "residence." FOOTBALL! The guessing business on football scores is pick- Ing up. Odds and Ends received three times as many guesses as a week ago. Ted Chrlschtlles, Algona, wins the $1 for guessing closest to actual scores of last Saturday. He had 62 error points, 25 of them being made on the Minnesota-Nebraska game. He also went bad on Michigan-Michigan State, but practically called the turn on Purdue-Ohio State, Marquette-Wisconsin, and Drahe-Notre Dame. Second place again went to Bob Williams, with 76 error points. Bob picked Minnesota. Illinois, Michigan and Purdue to spoil his record. Don Blanchard, Lone Rock, cracked third place. He had 81 error points, going bad on Illinois (and by the way, DePaul wasn't very well known around here, the reports show), Minnesota and Purdue but calling the turn on the rest pretty close. Antone Johnson, Algona, was fourth with 83 er- Elmore Eye: The American Legion's new national defense program, as adopted at the annual convention last week, calls for the largest navy In the world, an increase of 180,000 men In the standing army, continuation of the Reserve Officers training camps and the Citizens Military training camps, a bigger air force, enlarged National Guard. a navy auxiliary of merchant ships, and no sales of helium gas to foreign nations. These things are all mil nun i j «y» the Legion, for adequate defense. Probably they are. Yet when the veterans advocate the largest navy in the world, they're encouraging the very rort of race the I). S. has been trying its best to discourage. * • • Lakota Nerd* a Fire Truck Lnkotn Record: Lakota's willing and able, but poorly equipped fire department was given a work out Saturday when a shack back of Francis Adams' home caught flre. Several of the volunteer liremen had the hose all hooked up at the Wiese corner and were ready to start' the water flowing when the announcement came that the lire was under control. Although the fire turned out to be nothing serious due to some quick work by the neighbors the fire department is to be congratulated on its prompt arrival al the scene of the tire. For fires Much as this the antique equipment which the town of Lakota bousts is sufficient, but if some of the firetraps along our main street should catrh lire some windy day it would be just too hail.

WAY OUT WEST x CHEYENNE, Wyoming: Fond of travel and political maneuvering. Franklin Delano Roosevelt last week entrained at Hyde Park. N. Y., for a twelve- day tour of the Northwest—ostensibly to see his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren in Seattle; but also to glean first-hand impressions of how the Northwest felt about things in general and the New Deal in particular. To Franklin Roosevelt a cross- country jaunt for a family reunion means a special train whose ten cars house a retinue of newspaper correspondents, radio broadcasters, photographers and secret service men; rear platform talks to cheer- ng thousands; hand-shaking with governors, senators and representatives along the way. Last week it also meant passing through the home states of three democratic senators who last spring helped defeat the Roosevelt Supreme Court enlargement plan: Wyoming's Joseph C. OMahony, Nebraska/a Edward Raymond Burk* aaU Moo tafia's Burton Kendall Wheeler. When Wyoming's O'Mahoney learned that the President's first pause would be his state's capital Cheyenne, he and Mrs. O'Mahoney hurriedly left Chicago where they had just bought a new La Salle Disregarding the caution to go slowly for 1.000 miles, they sped to undisguised rival when he summoned his leaders to meet soon in At- antic City "to canvass the work of organization and consider reports upon its administration affairs and lolicles." In this undeclared U. S. labor war, . I. O. has the inestimable advantage of a small, flexible, cohesive general staff; while A. F. of L.'s ilgh command is jealous, diffused, and divided, with Mr. Green serv- ng principally as medlary between his own factions. Openly seeking new friends, asking and getting employer support to such an extent that C. I. O. accuses A. F. of L. of chartering company unions— Mr. Green last week in Manhattan asked the American Legion for aid and comfort: "It is my well-considered opinion that the call of the hour is for a closer and stronger relationship between the American Federation of Labor and the American Legion." While C. I. O. vangloriously claims 3,700,000 members, A. F.'of L.—after losing 1,000,000 members to C L O.—claiBUL 3,600,000 our approximately a* many as it had be- for the schism. But impartial estimates place the membership of the rival groups at about 3,200,000 each. norant Chinete cfowiiftg Nanking* railway station w*r* Mown to Wto and virtually orwnftttd, the city* wretched poor were not panicky- Not a single prominent Chines* or foreigner had been hurt, no Important building h*d been destroyed. Returning to the city, Arn- baa«ador Johnson found the U. S. Embassy intact, declared "It's Ju«t M aaihe here M on the river," raw- ed the stars and stripes and decided to stay ashore. When a Chinese squadron turned bacK another fleet of 60 Japanese planes from Shanghai next afternoon, plainly revealed was the fact that Japan's airmen had failed either to break Chinese morale in the capital or to win mastery of the air over Nanking. Biggest raid of, the year, destroying Nan- king's $1,000,000. electric power plant putting the waterworks out of commission and hitting two Red Cross hospitals, was accomplished by 80 bombers at week's end. JAPANESE ARMY PROGRESS IN CHINA SHANGHAI: Apart from Japan's attempt to disorganize all resistance to her armies by destroying the capital of China, chief events of the war last week were: Japan's main army had beat back but had not "destroyed" the Chinese troops; had taken the city of Paoting with Its huge walls and 80,000 inhabitants (Chinese troops fleeing out the back gates were "annihilated to the last man" by Japanese machine-gun crews). Japan's Kwantung army had swung further westward to break through In to Inner Mongolia to cut off China from Soviet-dominated Outer Mongolia whence supplies are stream- Ing to aid Nanking. At Shanghai the cholera scare had grown to a ghastly actuality: 1.600 cases In the International Settlement alone; thousands of natives down with the disease In the Chapel section. Internes worked tirelessly over plague victims who showed no sign of life whatever, saved many. Said one newsman: "They all looked dead to me!" In Hankow, 460 miles inland from Shanghai and famed as "China's Chicago", Japanses bombers let go their explosives at leisure while escorting Japanese pursuit planes came skimming down and machine gunned masses of civilians in the streets. Over Canton, the New Orleans of China, flew overwehlming waves of bombers from nearby Japanese aircraft carriers, apparently causing panic. Dispatches reported 3.000 Cantonese killed, the worst air butchery of the war, and thousands of Cantonese "roaming the streets, wild-eyed and deranged with terror." Off Hong Kong the German steamer "Scharnhorst" rescued ten bug-eyed Chinese fisher folk who said they had been clinging for five days to bits of wreckage, told how a Japanese submarine had ruthlessly cannonaded and sunk QUAKER DAIS »ay» Roth H*rknt*», Gnat A tpfo eaatartJ Sa-Lin, only Giant lit Splendid Briiktiit" "ZERO HOUR-DEATH IN THE SKY- NANKING, China: The longest city walls in China encircle Nan- CheVen'ne' in"25 hour.."*'minutes king, "southern" capital of China arrived a day ahead of the pres-, «nce last ye*r when the idential special.

Fiist item on its agenda was John L. Lewis whose Committee for Industrial Organization fitce.s A. F. of L. in the greatest war in Labor history Between A. F. of L. and C. I O. there still exists a thin, technical tic; the rebellious C. I. O unions were last year "suspended" from A. F. of L. membership. but they have not yet been "ex- uelled." Theoretically. th« Great Schism could be healed if the C. I. O. unions would renounce the heresy of industrial unionism and submit to A. F of L. rule; but dark hints ot expulsion at the convention have been emanating from A, F. of L. leaders for months, and John L. Lewis lait week indicated Ihut C. I. O. wus ready to set it- iclf up permanently a» A. F, of L.'s ecent Japense air raids, Nanking was last week further threatened when Admiral Kiyoshi. Commander in Chief of the Japanese Navy in China, announced a series of super-bombings to wipe the Chinese capital off the map, strong- y advised foreigners and their dip- omats to clear out of the city. Although British Ambassador Knatchbull-Hugessen. wounded by Japanese airmen, still lay in a Shanghai hospital, Britain's Charge d' Affaires R. G. Howe decided to stick to his Nanking post. But U. S. Ambassador Nelson T. Johnson, faced with recent orders from Washington to use his own judgment about what constitutes "unnecessary ri»k". moved with his staff to the U. S. Gunboat* "Luzon" and "Guam" in the Yangtze river. Said he: "I am too unhappy to peak . . . This is the first time in 30 years I have been forced to leave my post ... I cannot risk the lives of the loyal men of my staff. I am not deserting." Tense fear that death might ruin at any moment gripped Nanking on the day set for the bombings: 28 China-born persons who had one or more Japanese parents or grandparents were shot as spies on suspicion alone; drugstores sold civilians thousands of makeshift gas masks of mereguuze. until a government order directed "confiscation of all gas masks in Nanking for military purposes"; and by that time Admiral Haaegawa's "zero hour" arrived. furiously-toiling Chnies* had built 5.000 dugout shel ters capable of, holding about 10 persons each. To U. S. and Bntlsn pleas that Nanking be spared out of respect for international law and for the sake of defenseless civilians. Japanese officials replied that their "humane objective" was to end the war as quickly as possible. Nan- king "was spared only from noon, the "zero hour" until next morning—because of "weather unsuitable for bombing." Then 40 grey bombers from Shanghai buzzed toward the city at an altitude of two miles, power-dived and released all their explosives as Chinese antiaircraft guns on the hills around the capital opened and Chinese cur- suit fighters took the air to tear at the bomber's flanks. Four Japanese planes crashed to the ground- Soon a second wave of bombers appeared, drapping 500-lb. explosive charges that destroyed whole blocks, incendiary bombs that started many a fire.
