"L«t the people know the truth and the country to safe."—Abraham Lincoln. SLANTS ON SERIOUS— AND A FEW SILLY SUBJECTS AS A DEFEATED VICE PRESIDENTIAL, candidate, Col. Frank Knox, who visited last week in Des Itolnes, made some observations that, coming from a republican, show decidedly more perspective than was the case during the last campaign. Col. Knox, •way from the heat of the asinine system under •which all U. 8. political parties campaign, speaks good sense. He admitted freely that he supports in general the Democratic administration's policy on foreign affairs, but disagrees heartily with its domestic or home policy. He spoke of Cordell Hull as a very satisfactory secretary of state. Which means that he realizes as do most Intelligent men and women that this nation must continue to do business with other nations of the world. We cannot build a stockade around the nation; whether we like it or not, the world is becoming increasingly small, and what affect* one nation, indirectly at least affects an others. Cordell Hull has handled his office with a long range view, in an effort to work out friendly reciprocal agreements, whereby our nation can exchange its manufactured and agricultural products with countries that need them, for products in return that we need. With regard to the domestic policy, even an arch democrat can see many errors among some good-intentioned moves. Whether the next administration is republican or democratic, there are some new social-minded ideas existent in this land that had not before this time been brought, out into the open, and they will continue. The New Deal, despite its mistakes, has left an indelible imprint for social improvement in the United States, and as Col. Knox intimates, in economic readjustment with our neighbors of the world. • • • IF YOUR BOY RIDES a bicycle, he is undoubtedly a lawbreaker. The last legislature passed a law prohibiting bycycles from using the sidewalks in business and school zones, and requires them to have a headlight and tail light or reflector—without sirens, after dark. • » IT SEEMS that to rename the city streets, In some cases, It will be necessary to work up a new city plat, which means lots of time. Councilmen and mayor have been working on the matter, and seem Interested In bringing about this improvement. L*t us hop* the plat matter -will be taken care ot some time soon, so that we may enjoy this much- seeded benefit in years to come. • • • GREAT BRITAIN'S DIPLOMATIC history has been one of many deals. Latest is "selling down the river" its old line allies—the other so-called democratic nations of the world. It will prevent war, possibly for a time, but it's still coming. The principles of smothering free speech and popular- rule government, crushing of minority groups, all distinct policies of Fascism. Nazidom and Communism, have been given a sly wink to "go ahead" with Chamberlain's state desire to work out a "deal." And, much as we dislike the spending of billions for armament, there seems no way out except for the U. S. to arm, as Roosevelt says, on both coasts, so that we are "protected on both sides." • • • WHAT DO YOU THINK of the idea of "plow- Ing under" all old cars five or ten years old—that is, compelling them by law to be kept off the highways? That has been proposed as a measure of bringing about highway safety. Obsolete cars are a menace on modern highways. One local garage recently had an old truck turned in on a trade; the brakes had not been touched for a year, and could not stop the truck in a block, yet that truck had been doing stock hauling for a solid year. Fortunately, so far as is known, no accident had occurred. WHY DO NATIONS seem so inevitably headed for war, every so often? Daniel J. Doherty. commander of the American Legion, answers the question with one word: "Greed." His solution to crush the "greed" in this nation is to conscript material re- spurces us well as men. In dictator nations, that is already an established situation, but the dictators do not j;o to the tront and enforce their one-man policies with bayonets In democracies, where the public has something to say, tmh a pland would certainly make everybod think twice. Which explains why a democracy is sc far superior to a dictatorship. thousands of young people they should not get a college education. The Inference one draws from the learned professor's observations Is that "I made it, but there Is little hope for you." Now he Is out with an attack on the Schools of Journalism. He should have included the Schools of Economics and Schools of Commerce whose graduates have given the country so many headaches the past few years. The University of Chicago Is floundering around in New Deal educational bewilderment, trying to find Itself a new sphere of usefulness which must be contrary to the established educational philosophy. Understand, President Hutch- Ins does not have to worry about the university payroll. John D.'s millions have taken care of that. So when this 30 year old prodigy was placed at the head of Chicago University, he became a modern Iconoclast. What ever is the established order, must be wrong. So the Schools of Journalism, which are enabling thousands of young people to so "train their minds that they can adjust themselves to any job", (In the field of journalistic endeavor), are branded as the "shadiest educational ventures." There are some outstanding Schools of Journalism In this country. We havn In mind the one at the University of Iowa, at the University of Missouri, at the Iowa State College nt Ames, at Columbia University, New York. These schools are training young people for a specific kind of usefulness after they leave college. These schools give its graduates just the kind of education President Hutchlns recommends. But 20 of the required 90 hours for a major must be taken In the Journalism Department. The remaining 70 hours must be taken in literature, language, history, science, government. Just the well rounded education the professor recommends. True, as Professor Hutchins says, the only way one can become a journalist is to be a journalist. The only way one can become a doctor is to practice medicine, the only way to be a lawyer Is to practice law. Not all journalist graduates <»re successful, neither aro all our lawyers or doctors, and not all the theories of the college presidents and professors are practical. But most of them are headed In the right direction. They will survive just so long as they are useful. Schools of Journalism proved their usefulness long before the arrival of Chicago University's sophomoric president, and will be with us long after he disappears from the educational horizon. So we will string along with Walter Williams. Dr. F. L. Mott. Prof. Blair Converse and other outstanding School of Journalism directors and wish President Hutchins much pleasure in his futile fulminating against them. 9 • • And "Nut" Wilt nt Him Webster City Journal: There is considerable talk favorable to Paul V. McNutt, former governor of Indiana and now high commissioner to the Philippines, as the democratic candidate for president in 1940. Mr. McNutt arrived at San Francisco the other day on his way to Washington to report to President Roosevelt his views on conditions in the far east, especially relating to the war between Japan and China. Mr. McNutt is regarded by many leading democrats as the most available candidate for the presidency. However, if he is nominated, his republican opponents will probably drop the "Me" and call him plain Nutt. • • • ' Labor Agitators Ruin Labor Northwood Index: Henry Ford proposes to build 4,000, or more houses this spring on a 1200- scre tract near his Dearborn automobile plant. The plan is one of non-profit for Ford and the houses will be for both high and low income groups of workers. Parks, playgrounds and schools are n part of the plan and the homes will provide for 20,000 people. It remains to be seen whether the federal administration and John L. Lewis, perhaps with the courts behind them, will permit Mr. Ford to operate his business except under rigid dictatorship. If they Interfere, not only will the housing plan probably go up the spout but also the well paid jobs of 100,000 or more workers now drawing pay from Mr. Ford. Opinions of Other Editors Gilchritt U Popular Webster City Freeman: It in reported that H. Lloyd Eveland, democrat, of Boone county, farmer, has announced his candidacy for congress to su.-ceed Fred C. Gilchrist for this district. The Freeman- Journal has no acquaintance with Mr. Eveland ami knows nothing about his qualifications to represent the district in congress, but his friends hay he is will qualified for the position. Mr. Gilchrist is now fcervirg his third term and is deservedly popular among the people of the dibtrict. It will require the strongest man the democrats have to defeat him. Former Stiitu Secretary of Agriculture Murray wa « considered 'i good campaigner and vote getter hul in 1936 Mr. Gilchrist defeated him easily.

P. Dispatch: Dr. Robert M. Hutchins. president of the University of Chicago, tulil the Inlaml Daily Press Association Wednesday "the .shadiest educational ventures under respectable auspices are iht schools of journalism." Speaking on "What Education Cannot Do" the young educator lumped journalism and public service with charm, personality and "how to get married and like it" as subjects which cannot be taught. "What education cannot do." he asserted, "is to prepare men and women for specific jobs. All 11 car; hope to do is to train their minds so they can adjust themselves to any job." Ht declared schools of journalism "exist in defiance of the obvious fact that the best preparation for journalism is a good education. Journalism itself can be learned, if at all. only by ben>..< A journalist " Eagle Grove Eagle: President Hutching has been running a series of articles in the Saturday Evening Pc-sl in which he attempts to convince Rev. A. English ha* a problem; he brought It to us, but we could not solve it, so we're asking for help. In his many years of marrying fqlks. he has also concluded his ceremony by "pronounce you husband and wife." But it seems that newspapers and radio commentators always speak of "man and wife." After all, if a woman is a "wife" then a man is a "husband." We're inclined to think Rev. English is right, and that usage has again twisted an otherwise correct phrase. • • • For some time now, we've been wanting to get ahead of Pottawattamie (what a name) county. It seems that P. is usually first in this and that, but at last we've found it. Kossuth has had more horse and mule colts than any other county In the state of Iowa. Now, Pottawattamie, what do you say to that? • • • Lro Spllles in now back at his familiar post in business on State street. He and Mm. Spllles, and their daughter, Arlene, completed a 10,000- mile jaunt by car, that took them into southern Mexico, and out to the Pacific coasl, via Boulder Dam, on a seven week's trip. Like everyone else who makes a long trip, he says it seems mighty good to be home, even though the trip was most enjoyable. Eddie Sifert, local boy, is all smiles this week. After our send off of last week, Eddie has signed up with the Obert Miller circus, and has been ordered to report for work the first week in April. The Miller Bros, circus will bill him as ''Edward, the Great." At the left, you see Eddie in one of the poses that requires jelly instead of a backbone. Eddie says that he ha.s the original formula by which the manufacturers worked out the scheme for pretzels, if you ;el what we mean. If anybody know* any good democratic joke* about republicans we'd like to get a line, on them.

S. motorist rides on some 300,000 miles of hard-surfaced roads, one-fifth ol the earth's total. Yet no less than three plans for another 17,000 miles of U. S. "super highways" were under serious congressional consideration last week. Senator Robert Johns Bulkley of Ohio, fortnight ago. proposed a network of ten 100 ft. express highways which would avoid towns and cities shoot directly across and up and down the U. S.—seven North-South, three transcontinental. Total cost: $8.000.000,000. to be met in 16 years by toils and leases of concession privileges along the way. In the House, Alabama's Representative Henry B. Steagall, introduced a companion measure. But Father of Super-Highways in Congress in J. Buell Snyder of Pennsylvania, who two years ago wrote a bill (reintroduced fortnight ago) calling for payment of S8.000,- 000.000 from the U. S. Treasurey to build {500.000-a-mile crow-flight highways which would antiquate for express travel most existing routes, put paproximately 1.600.000 men directly to work, be a great aid to national defense since they would be made of concrete heavy enough to stand up under mounted 8-inch guns. Representative Snyder's flowered, shrubbed and lighted super-speedways would also be •ftsettv.ayrial gruUM, cmtid be abut Of in sections* to provide emergen cy landing fields, would have a vast airport at each of the 18 superhighway Intersections. Although last autumn in the interest of economy he came out against the building of public roads President Roosevelt last week dignified the super-highway idea by endorsing Senator Bulkley's self- payment plans as a business pump- primer, and by suggesting thai through excess condemnation of land a mile each side of the superhighways the government might realize a profit when land values rose. _ o— WEARY HOOStERS— EVANSVILLE. Indiana: Harry Lang of Harry Lang, Inc.—an Ev ansville, Ind., company which manufacturers lubricants, owns Ev ansville Home Oil Co., Inc., Dixii Dance Wax, Inc., and a string o four gas stations—pays state and federal Income taxes, social secur Ity, encumbrance, personal proper ty, gasoline, corporation, capita stock, truck wheel and chain-store taxes. Since these taxes will thi year take $30.000 or 20% of Har ry Lang's gross, last week he an nounced: "I just wrote the presid ent that I'd be willing to do it th other way around. Let him own the business and let me run it fo him for five years at a salary equa to what I'd be paying in taxes. Jus five yearn. That would be $150, 000—and I'd sell the business for a whole lot less right now!" Max M. Nowak of Hammond. Inc after 35 years building up the retai feed business founded by Ha father last year sold $1.500,000 worth o livestock feed. To do so. Max No wak spent $7.008 in 1937 for cler ical help, auditors and attorneys t make out 1,100 tax returns, paii $20,000 in tax«t> to 28 states and th federal government. Said he Ian week as he sold out to Vltallt Mills, Inc.: "It is not merely th amount of tax I have to pay. It' also the annoyance of having t report this and that and the othe thing to every official who come along ... I used to feel happy when I'd come down to work in the morn ing. I'd whistle a tune and mee the day with some zest. Toda there's nothing but grief." OPINION- MIAMI BEACH. Florida: Si Charles Higham, Director of Brit ish Propaganda during the war. las week in Miami Beach aired hi opinion of Franklin Roosevelt: Th president of the United States i "us bold, as ambitious, as demog ogic and, had he Ihe chance, woul' be as dictatorial as Hitler or Mu.s Mjlini." —o — NEW INCHWASHINGTON: Although th New Deal has not yet devalued th inch, the House Co.inmiltee on Coin age, Weight* and kl'eaaures now ha before it a bill to nhorten the incl by 00005 millimetres. Since th j U. S. inch is defined as 25-40005 mill ! i Mitt res arid the British inch is de| Iiutd as 25.39096 millimetres, the ; bill's object is to establish uniformity by meeting the British halfway making the inch an even 25.4 millimetres. Bureau of Standards Director Ly! man J Briygs last week called the • difference between the British inch ami the U. S. inch "intolerable." 1*0.rating out that the most precise i industrial measurements 'of wrist pins for pislon rods, etc.i are accurate only within one ten-thous- andth of an inch. Director Briggs said; 'Industry from a practical standpoint will not realize that a change has been made because the change Is too small." Not discussed was the effect of a shortened Inch on longer measurements: A mile wbuld be approximately inch shorter, the U. S. would measure 31 feet, 2 Inches wider. —o— FRIENDLY FORTRESSES- BUENOS AIRES, Agentine: Out of Miami, across the Caribbean, and down the west coast of South America to Buenos Aires last week roared six of the U. S. Army's new lying fortresses—4-motored bom- >ers each manned by eight men. urpose of this dongest (5.225 miles) 'good will" flight in army aviation history was to represent the U. S. at the inauguaraUon of Argentine President Roberto M. Ortii—con- veniently scheduled three weeks after the good will flight of three Italian planes to Rro de Janeiro. The Italian good will flight had been a mild fiasco. To avoid appearing Fascist-minded, the Brazil- an government gave the fliers a cool welcome: and the antl-Fas- cist Buenos Aires "Critica" decried the flight so bitterly that Argentine was omitted from the itinerary. By contrast the U. S. good will Bight was a huge success. The planes reached Buenos Aires in rec- England was really anxious to defend the status quo, she would «n- ergentlcally oppose the Bolsheviza- tion of other countries, for such Bolshevized regions are no longer self-governing states but only sections of the revolutionary Moscow center." Having thus energetically attacked British foreign policy, the chancellor devoted a conciliatory part of his speech to announcing that Germany extends diplomatic recognition to the Empire of Manchu- kuo and assures Japan that the Fatherland wants no territory in Eastern Asia; that Germnay has no territorial designs upon Franca or Spain and is "proud" of the 1934 pact by which Germany and Poland continue to respect each other's rights and Interests. To Austria, Orator Hitler then said:— "I want at this point to express sincere thanks to the Austrian chancellor for his deep understanding and warm-hearted readiness wherewith he accepted my Invitation and sndetvored with me to find a way that is quite as much in the Interests of the entire German people whose sons we all are no matter where our cradles stgod. I believe we thereby made a contribution to European peace. "Self-Determlnaaon," Touchiest subject that Adolf Hitler raised was his pronouncement on the favorite Nazi doctrine, Germanic unity: 'Two of the states bordering Germany alone include a mass of 10000,00 Germans! (Austria and Czecho-sJovakla) . . . About one thing there should be no doubt Separation from the state sovereignty of the Reich cannot lead to the loss of racial or political rights! . . . Just as England defends her interests the world over, the present day Germany will be able to defend her much more limited Interests." "Colonies Demanded-" But the big smash of the chancellor's speech was his ominous roar that Germany has "no difference with England— except colonies. The English did not secure their colonies by holding democratic plebescites among the natives, continued the chancellor, "but through naked, brutal force!" Turning upon His Majesty's government all the heat he could, the Fuhrer stated the demand of 66,000.000 Germans for colonies thus: "I say once and for all, we are not willing to accept credits and other promises in place of colonies! We need territories In which our own currency is valid! ... I have a deep-seated distrust for conferences .... Germans do not desire war. But they do not fear war!" lam! To any Germans who may still think the Fuhrer did not fully master whatever opposition to him there was in the German Army before his recent firing of generals, Adolf Hitler howled: "There Is no doubt that I am the authorized leader of the Reich! The German nation which gave me this mandate represented all fields! The army is devoted to the Nazi Nation in blind faith and obedience. We ere proud of the Nazi army. And the army is the crowning glory of Nazi education! "I assure the world of the deep and sincere love of peace of the German people," added their great orator in a malting interlude. Then warm welcomeTrom S*resldent tiz. awed his capital by flying over It In formation during the inaug uratlon. Cried the delighted "Crlt- ica". under an eight-column streamer headline to suggest the U. S. flag: "Welcome to the aviators of Democracy . . . None has bombarded cities; none has spread horror and death among women and children . . . nothing connected with their splendid trip Is In any way suggestive of the spirit that has brought other fliers to these shores." PROTEST- TUCSON, Arizona: His U. S. Income taxed by the Bureau of Internal Revenue. British Author John Boynton Priestly, vacationing In Arizona, last week protested: "I don't recall that as an Englishman I have a Representative in Congress. Wasn't it taxation without representation which caused all the trouble between the colonies and England in the first place?" •i— GENTLE BOW— SHANGHAI, China: Anxious are Japanese authorities in Shanghai to get foreigners to resume living, shopping and paying taxes in Hong- kew the recently fought-over section of the International Settlement that has long been predominantly Japanese. Hesitant British and U. S. former residents last week studied a list of regulations and inducements, published in English at Japanese Army headquarters. "Foreigners returning to districts North of the Creek are especially requested to respect the sentry on duty ... at street corners by giving him a gentle bow and wishing him 'Good Morning'. Foreigners must realize that the Japanese soldier doing such duty represents The Emperor of Japan. "It is hoped that everyone wish ing to live in Hongkew will make friends with the Japanese. Japanese ladies, 150 from the Tokyo high school, well versed in English, are now in Shanghai for the sole purpose of being better acquainted with foreigners. Further details regarding Interviews, etc. will be furnished ... In the office of the Secretary to the Commander of the Naval Fleet in Shanghai. "Foodstuffs will be sold at 23 discount. Saki will be free to those who drink the health of the Emperor, and a quantity not exceed ing two liters (slightly more than 'a gallon) can be taken away each day. In the event of foreigners wishing to employ Japanese maid servants, they are requested to make application to the garrison commander at the Japanese club as soon as possible as there are a limited number of Nei-sans (House girls). Bachelors need not apply . . . Married men applying for Nei- sans will have to obtain consent ol their wives. Foreigners who employ Nei-sans will be entitled to one bath a week in any of the un- dementioned bath houses in Hong- kew free of charge. Foreign ladiet can apply for Japanese malm masseurs. "By order of the Garrison Commander of the Japanese Expeditionary Forces in China." ••GIVE is COLONIES:" BERLJN. Germany: "Soviet Russia is the only state with which Germany has no desire to cooperate", declared Chancellor Adolf Hitler last week in a three-hour address before the German Reichstag (congress >, ''for Soviet Russia is trying to Bolshevist the world. If peace has nothing to do with weak renunciation and cowardice!" DOLLARS FOR WORK- NEW YORK: The 20 major Protestant denominations of the U. S. last year collected $15.000,000 more than the year before, according to a report of the United Stewardship Council, representing 23 U. S. and Canadian churches. Country folk are still more religious than city people; churches with rural constituents still show the greatest increase in giving. Highest per cent gains were In the Church of the Brethren, 16% and the Church of the Nazarene, 13#. The Southern Baptists gave $2.300,120 more than last year, land 8 per cent Increase. I Next biggest dollar gain was In the I Presbyterian Church In the U. S. A.—$2,158,208, a five per cent rise. FIGURESLONDON: When questioned last week in the House of Commons on the extent of an Increase in corset imports. Board of Trade President Oliver George Stanley punned: "The honorable gentleman must judge from the figures." LATE Dl CHKS.H— LONDON: On December 22 last, the Dowager Duchess of Rutland, a portrait painter famed in Victoria's day as a beauty, breathed her last in the London house of her son. His Grace the Duke of Rutland shut up her corpse in his town house, and, telling no one, traveled to Belvoir (pronounced Beaver) Castle, his home in Lincolnshire, to e/itertain family and friends over Christmas. Not until last week did Britons learn that, ignoring customary burial practice*, the Duke had thus kept his mother's death a secret for six days. The Duke hastily explained that he had acted in accordance with his mother's death-bed wish—that her death must not spoil the family Christmas party.
