A majority of our congressmen now realize that the one path to better times is the encouragement of private enterprise, and congress seems once more in the saddle. In this there is much to be thankful for; herein may lie the foundation of a truly prosperous new year.

"Let the people know the troth and the conn- try Is safe."—Abraham Lincoln. DISTRICT ATTORNEY VS. NEWSPAPER New Yorkers were treated to an amazing situation, a few days ago, when a district attorney had an editor and two reporters cited for contempt of court All they had done was to produce a key witness in a criminal charge against one Nick Montana, styled as the "czar" of New York vice. The district attorney failed to produce the missing witness, a Mason City girl, who went to New York to find fame and fortune. What the fortune may have been we cannot say, but in this case she eventually reached fame, such as it is. But when the New York Post sent out a reporter, and the reporter brought back the witness who testified that this Montana had forced her into prostitution and taken part of her earnings as well, the district attorney was mad— and the newspapermen caught it in the neck. Montana was sentenced to three years in prison, despite the appearance of the feminine witness and testimony which might have resulted in a 25-year sentence. One can draw their own conclusions from such horse-play, in the good name of Justice. THOSE BLOOD TESTS While drunken driving is no joke, there is a certain amount of humor in the tests for drunken driving and the condition of drunken drivers, conducted recently by the St. Louis police department Getting eight husky drivers, whose ability to withstand the effects of strong drink seemed to be more-than-ordinary, they proceeded to seat the truck drivers before a choice collection of liquor. Keeping tab on the number of drinks, and the ensuing reaction time of the drinkers, proved to be lots of fun. But it seemed that a number of "outsiders" were present and although not taking- the driving tests, did take part of the liquor. The result was that the police department had to drive the truck drivers home, and the onlookers as well. Well, we're not from Missouri, but we can understand more than heretofore, why that "We're from Missouri" slogan is so popular. for Prosperity Humboldt Independent:! If the government would get out of business and content Itself with seeing that the "game" is played fairly by all parts of the citizenship; if it would spend its energies In curbing Instead of trying to annihilate Industry; if it would cease donations of government cash except In extreme cases; If it would conduct the affairs of government as economically as possible; if it would try to be fair Instead of trying to control, we would bound back into prosperity and stay there for a period of years. • • • What? No More Cars Wm. S. Knudson, General Motors: Taxation of capital Is reaching the point where It Is but a few steps ahead of confiscation, and we all know what that means. • • * Mimmle" for King Marshalltown Times-Republican: With Jimmie elevated to a position as a sort of presidential assistant one wonders If there is a plot under way to create a Roosevelt dynasty. • * • Don't Want to Fight Mason City Globe-Gazette: To the extent that the roughshod old marine officer of Quaker rearing is contending against an American involvement In any foreign war situations, we are for him. More power to your lusty voice, Smedley! • • • Carried Two State* Only Oelwein Register: It would be a mistake to again place Mr. Landon's name at the head of the republican ticket While a good man he is not a good vote getter and the republicans want a good vote getter as well as a good man to head their ticket in 1940. • • • Pasaing the Buck Sioux City Journal: There will be no war involving the United States in a struggle with Japan. The British government has settled the whole thing By announcing through Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain that if punitive steps are to be taken Uncle Sam must take the lead. • • • TafTIc Deaths Increasing Dubuque Telegraph-Herald: The curve of traffic deaths everywhere continues its upward trend, in spite of all safety campaigns. We should assume that the total would be even higher without these campaigns, but the persistent rise is nevertheless discouraging. The hideous tragedy of the school bus at Mason City sent the total of deaths for Iowa above 425 for this year, substantially over the corresponding figure last year. • • • Government Interference Davenport Times: Fundamentally the nation is sound in an economic sense. It is only the interference on the part of government the managed economy which is now being attempted, with its unbalanced budget and ever growing debt that casts a shadow across the land. Once the fears and uncertainty and the confusion arising frem plans on the part of the administration, which are but dimly understood even at Washington are removed and the natural processes of recovery are permitted to have free play, the nation will move ahead to firmer foundations. HOW COME WE MISSED 26 TEABST Prime surprise of the controversy regarding the unequal senatorial district distribution in the state, as unearthed within the past few weeks, is the fact that the state constitution orders the legislature to conduct a redistrlcting survey after each federal census. The last time the state government observed tho state constitution in this respect was in 1911. Thus, the 1920 and 1930 census were both ignored. Now that's one thing we can't blame on the democrats; the republicans were in power in 1921 and 1931. Opinions of Other Editors "Dick" ih ill the Lead Back Stages Politics in M. C. Gazette: Rumor is, calling out the big names of the party to carry the senatorial torch. Former Senator Lester J. Dickinson of Algona has the head start on the nomination, of course, and Editor Berry Halden of -Chariton, 1&36 contender against Gillette, is considered a likely repeater. The ball is ;ust starting to roil for others. Prominent mention is given Congressman Lloyd Thurston of Osceola, who has served in seven successive congresses from the old eighth and present fifth congressional districts, and has survived democratic opposition. Former Justice F. F. Faville of Sioux City, Fred Larrabeo of Fort Dodge, dairy man, Tim J. Campbell of Newton and Slate Senator L«. H. Doran of Boone are among those receiving slight mention, and who might not even know of it themselves. Thurston is said to have at least entertained the idea of running for the senate. • • * Clean Books Not Wanted Northwood Index: Kev. Charles William Gordon, known to millions of readers a.s Ralph Connor, author of "Sky Pilot" and other best sellers of a few years ago. is dead in his native Canada. A newspaper comment says "after the war his type of romantic novel lost much of its appeal for a newer generation." Why'.' Connor's books were always thrilling hut clean—no profanity, no obscenity—but always currying ti powerful tale of rouyh men of the northern woods. He made his heroes stand out and in the end his villains trembled, or were converted Into good men. No appeal for a newer generation, u, generation fed on prir.tcd profanity and pornography. • # * (joint; Farther in Debt Geo. Nichols in Eslherville Vindicator: President Roosevelt has some sort of housing plan on liis program for recovery. The idea is ':o encourage capital to finance people to build homes and better ones. That will not work. You never can bring back prosperity by having people get heavier in debt, any more tiiiin you can lift yourself by bootstraps. That is one trouble with the country now, the nation, .states and individuals art: too deep in debt. We will never fully recover from the depression until there is less indebtedness. * * • Business Holding 1U Own Exchange: Regardless of the bloc;; market, irrespective of political uncertainty, business has moved ahead more rapidly than moat people suppose, stales the Chicago Association of Commerce, when it says: Farm income ihis year will be 15 per cent more. than a year ago. The total income will be approximately a billion dollars. Factory workers' earnings will be 11.3 billion dollars, 30 per cent over a year ago. Retail trade is still 8 to 10 per cent better than SHADOWS EVENTS CAST THEIR I CLEANED THE WALKS AND TOOK oi/r THE ASHES- IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I CAM 00-PA?
