Progressives, to be sure, must wnnt more taxation, more extravagance, more politics in government. Mr. Kraschel has much to offer them. He hs.« everything to offer, in fact, except what n pwirrwsive wants to find in government.

And, the motion to reinstate the names was recommended by a taxpayers' league at that city, to reduce excessive relief costs.

In Russia and Germany alike political foes, or even those suspected of not approving the stern government, just disappear into nowhere never to be heard from again.

The same claim was put forward two years ago in the primary when the Algona man was opposed by two "new faces." He received 50.000 more votes than his two opponents combined. In the fall there was on the ticket with him a new name and a new face one of the finest young men of Iowa, we thought then and we think now. And what is observed here is in no sense critical of that young man or his campaign. Both Were defeated, of course, but in 94 of the- 99 counties. Senator Dickinson had the greater vote.

Austria: Sitting beside his chaffeur in the front scat of his black Mercedes-Benz. German Reichsfuhrer Adolf Hitler last week entered his native Austria amid a two-mile long procession of German Army and storm troops, with «ix tanks leading the way nml German bombing planes blacking out the Austrian sky. In many Austrian factory districts stalwart Nazis meanwhile stripped to the waist workmen known for their Communist or Socialist views, gave them the cat-o'-nine-tails: and Vienna's Jewish quarter boys in were flogged, the eyes of old men watered as their beards were jerk- eel, Nazies spat in the faces of Jew- esses, and almost everyone whether Jew or Aryan was soon wearing a swastika. Adolf Hitler paused briefly to inspect the three-story building In which he was born at Braunau. At Linz. where an octo-genarian schoolmaster of Hitler's boyhood came "'.it with the welcoming crowds singing "Today Germany i.s ours! Tomorrow the whole world.'", Nazi Hitler was met by Nazi Arthur Sfryss-Iiiqiwrt whom h<- had forcer) in as Chancellor of Austria a fortnight ago. Seyss-Inquart promptly handed over his country to the German Dictator by declaring: "From today the Austrian people consider null and void paragraph 88 of the Treaty of St. Germain which proclaims Austria's independence." Hitler at Linz decreed himself f'hief of State and Commander-in- Chief of the armed forces of Austria. Decrees, proclamations, orders followed by scores as he left Linz in a six-wheeled military automobile, making slowly for Vienna which Nazis hoped they had made safe by locking up hundreds in- med the streets.

During the first six days the Franco forces behind the largest aerial concentration the war has seen, advanced along a 60-mile front and gained approximately 1,350 square miles of Leftfst territory. Some 3,500 prisoners were taken, the Rightists announced, including 400 U. S. citizens of the Leftist Abraham Lincoln battalion. At week's end one Rightist column was only about 45 miles from the Mediterranen sea. Should Franco's drive reach the sea. he will have split Leftist Spain into two parts. Laymen, who have puzzled over the many seesaws of Spain's war could thank the Saturday Evening Post last week for a professional military analysis of the war by Major Thomas R.
