J. Dickinson, In hi* unsuccessful campaign for reelection to a second term as United States senator, took a bold stand against the new deal. He must have realized that his fight was a hard one, but he followed no fence straddling course as might many a man. Quite the contrary, he roundly criticized at every turn, and with little or no reservation, the underlying philosophy of the Roosevelt program. It might not have been the most practical type of politics, but no one could call Mr. Dickinson a pussyfooter or doubt that courage went with his convictions. In a statement made recently announcing that he Is a candidate for the republican nomination for United States senator In the primary next June, Mr. Dickinson stands by his guns of two years ago. He fifty s i "The country needs sound government more desperately than ever before. Trial experiments have proved that we still must depend on earning, rather than borrowing and spending, to restore our economic morale. I am more convinced than ever before that experience and common sense are required in public service. If nominated and elected, I will direct my course along such lines." Those who are of the opinion that under the new deal we are drifting farther and farther away from the proved, sound principles of American government have In Mr. Dickinson the means to make their views known. Furthermore, they can support Mr. Dickinson with complete confidence that if he is nominated and ejected he will not later "let them down." With the purchase of a drug store by Inec and Frances Lonergan, young Kossuth folks, at Schaller, Iowa, we find Algona's drug store-trained people taking another step forward. George Free started the procession by settling over at Garner. We honestly feel that for a town of 4,500 we are something of a metropolis in the drug store business, what with the Druggists Mutual situated In the middle of things. Both George and Inez (Potter) Lonergan, worked for Bob James, incidentally, to learn the business from the ground up. • • • \ To the hundred* of cooptes In till* vicinity who have danced In the past year In Kossuth dance halls to the tune* of Wit Thoma, it will be news that hi* band I* playing now in Fort Worth, Texas, and nightly 1* on the air over WBAP— Fort Worth. • • • Some hone tiilef walked off with the ping-pong net over at the Hotel Algona, the other day, to the consternation of table tennis fans who make use of the basement amusement room. • • • Sjtealdng of Algonan* In Florida, Burdette Agard, writing from Miami, says "My old one, aeven and putt I* working fine.

Prepared by the Editor* of TIME The Weekly Newtmaiazine MAN AND WIFE OF THE YEAR- NEW YORK: As It does at every year's end, 'Time" last week weighed the Important news figures of 1837 to select the "Man of the Year", chose not one person but two China's Generalissimo Chiang Kai- shek and Mme. Chiang. Under China's able leader and his remarkable wife, the traditionally disunited people of the world's most populous country have slowly been given a national consciousness en- p.bling them to withstand a bitter invasion. Every headline reader knows that in 1937 the Japanese War Machine halted at Shanghai for 13 long weeks, its time table shattered by the first Chinese War Machine worthy of the name which the world has ever seen. No fault of Generalissimo Chiang was it that he was forced to use his war machine at least two years before it was finished. His band was forced by overzealoui Chinese patriots, by canny Japanese who believed that unless they beat China In 1937 they might never do so. Today Generalissimo and Mme. Chiang, who heads China's air force, have not conceded China's defeat. Long ago they announced that their program Tor as many years a* necessary will be to harass, exhaust and eventually ruin Japan by guerlll.f warfare. If QeneraliMlmo Chiang cau King of the Tear, If any, was certainly Leopold m of the Belgian* dynamic maker of international treaties, wise maker of Belgian cabinets, and a handsome, eligible young widower not to be overlooked by any lady of royal blood. No less outstanding as Man of the Year in Science and Medicine was Dr. Thomas Parran Jr., Surgeon General of the U. S. Public- Health Service, whose significant accomplishment was to carry on against venereal disease the first U. S. drive comparable to those with other human plagues have been worsted. Foremost U. S. Books of the Year were certainly Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People," which sold 780,000 copies, and Kenneth Roberts' "Northwest Passage", which sold 308.000. Radio's Man of the Year was Charlie McCarthy. Cinema's box office-tested Actor of the Year was Clark Gable; its Actress of the Year, Shirley Temple; and 15-year-old Deanna Durbin, who rose to stardom in 1937 and reputedly sang Universal Pictures out of impending bankruptcy, was the Cinema's Girl of the Year. CALAMITY, CHAOS AND RUIN- NANKING, China: As Japanese troops seized another 9,125 square miles of Chinese territory, the Chicago "Dally News" last week published dispatches from its able Shanghai correspondent—including extract! which Chinese censors had previously slashed out! Sample*': "Nanking's greatest fear, which explains the sudden evacuation of the capital despite the fact that the Japanese troops are still 110 miles east of the city gates, i* looting by Chinese troops—not fear of bombardment from Japanese warships . . . Inside the Chinese lines the utmost confusion prevails . . . Chinese troops have not been paid since August. . . There is severe lack of food for front-line troops . . . Demoralization had resulted from lack of attention for the Chinese wounded .,. What now? Japan has succeeded in plunging China into chaos which will take several years, perhaps decades, to straighten out . . With China's near collapse understood, neither Russia nor any other national will feel desirous of giving China military assistance." What made all this timely last week was that Japanese forces were at the moment approaching the great Shantung city of Tsingtao where Chinese looters, firebugs, panic- stricken soldiers and gangsters were creating fresh chaos as they laid waste the $100,000,000 61 Japanese property in the city. Taingtou's moonfaced Mayor Shen Hun-lieh, admiral of the insignfi- caat Chinese navy, at first did his best to have Chinese looters shot on sight, and numerous corpses accumulated in front of Japanese shops. Later as the mayor's authority crumbled, and as maddened Chinese started looting and burning indiscriminately. Admiral Shen adopted the desperate expedient of having signs put up directing prospective looters to Japanese prem- ises, in the hope that they would spare others. Finally the admiral fled pell-mell with Tsingtao's Chinese police. ITALY VS. ENGLAND- RADIO WAR- CAIRO, Egypt: In Saudi, Arabia, in Palestine, Syria, Egypt and the other Arab lands of North Africa, many Arabs faced. 1938 last week with little food and less money, but plenty of others had new radio sets, all of which had been delivered absolutely free by suave efficient young men who set them up, tuned and locked them at a certain wave length, and departed similing amiably. Not charity but an undeclared war of Increasing bitterness caused this lavish dispersal. Ever since the British joined in voting League Sanctions against Italy during the Ethiopian crisis, the Italian short- wave radio station at Barl has poured out an unendnig stream of anti- British propaganda In Arabic, Intended to teach all Moslem nations that the British Empire was falling to pieces, that Benito Muiso'lni was a proper protector for Islam. Britain protested officially and unofficially. Italy's answer was to increase the Bari broadcasts and then start distributing to Arabs radios that could be tuned In only on the Italian station. Lately Britain ha* retaliated with radio sets of her own, j^,^-. ..*, >,.»;,,«„,, *&.*.{. West Bend Cafe Proprietor Die* West Bend: George Emerson, a well known restaurant man here, passed away suddenly Monday. He was almost 8 years old at the time of his death, and has been In failing health for about 3 years.

JOE—WHAT A MAN!— KEAKNY, New Jersey: Stabbed in the heart during a Christmas Day brawl resulting from the suspicious disappearance of a few bottles of wine belonging to Graziano Taite of Jersey City, "Smiling Joe" Thomas, a giant negro standing 6 feet 2 Inches tall and weighing 220 pounds, was rushed to a Kearny hospital. There doctors cut through tils chest wall, opened the pericardium (heart envelope) so that the heart lay visibly beating before their eyes, delicately extracted a three- inch piece of broken knife blade and quickly closed the heart wound with three stitches. Modern heart surgery is successful nowadays only if the patient has absolute rest until the stitches ire absorbed and the tissue heals, for any exertion may burst the seam and loose a fatal spout of blood from :he heart. Hence, when Joe's .nurse left the room for a few moments two days after the operation, she warned him not to move. But Joe suddenly remembered hat the friend with whom he had >een living in Newark was about to be dispossessed, thought he might not find him if he stayed in the hospital any longer. He felt all right, got up, wrapped his pajuma-clad hulk in a blanket, clambered over the window sill, slid down 35 feet of water pipe to the ground, trudged across a swamp in his bare feet. At Harrison, a mile from the hospital, a night watchman gave him a pair of rubbers and a suit of overalls. Joe went on to Newark, found his friend, still felt all right, decided to stay awhile, and enjoy himself. Police were still searching the swamp for Joe's body last week when he walked into the hospital and apologized. He felt fine, he said, but had decided it was wrong for him to leave. The astonished staff rushed him back to bed where an examination disclosed that Joe's healing heart had suffered no ill effects whatever. AMOS 'N' A1VDY— PEPSODENT TO CAMPBELL NEW-YORK: Freeman F. Gosden and Charles J. Correll (Amos 'n' Andy* last week made their 2,750th and last 16-minute broadcast for Pepsodent Tooth Paste, which since 1929 had paid them well over $200,000 a year for writing and acting their droll negro dramatization and paid National Broadcasting Company $1,200.000 last year for radio time consumed.
