THE SIDE OF THE CONDEMNED Paul Verner, 19-year-old youth from Spencer, now serving a life sentence in the state reformatory at Anamosa for the murder last fall of his step-father, Frank Jayne, had an interesting story of his own In a national magazine, "Inside Detective," recently. , As quoted in The Spencer Daily Repjrter, Verner says he has led a life that seemed a nightmare since the age of eight, when he says he was first threatened by his step-father. He also outlines a household in which any youth of tender years would eventually go mad or commit a crime- • assuming that the story of Verner is true. The story Is one of beatings, threats, hatred and mental and physical torture. There are crimes for which no excuse can bj found, nor should excuses be desired. But if Verner is telling a true story, it is easily understandable how a youth, after 11 years of such a life, should eventually reach the point where the last strand snaps, and murder results. Verner was taken out of school, which he liked, and where he was gaining fame as an athlete, because his step-father "did not believe in it." There are points to be seriously considered in behalf of the imprisoned youth. NEW PARTY POSSIBnJTTES It Is not surprising that a national leader has come forth with a call for a new national party. To persons interested in political parties, whether republican or democrat, it has been evident for some time that both parties are mis-named under present circumstances, and that the only true alignment of voters today Is based on their views as to liberalism or conservatism. The liberal or progressive elements of the nation, be they right or wrong, have for the most part backed and supported the democratic party and President Roosevelt, as offering them ths greatest hope for progressive changes in government, as compared with the republican party. But events of the past few months have clearly shown that although the democratic party offers hopes to a liberal group, it in itself is not a party of liberals, but simply a cross-section of all types, some liberal, some conservative, and some just democrat because their grandfathers were. The republican party, too. has been trying for months to arrive nt a definite conclusion regarding itself. Hoover and Landon. its chief loaders, do not sec- down the same alley, and its chief difference as compared with the democratic party h'ls been that whereas with the democrats, the progressives have had something to any, in the republican par'.y, the conservatives outnumber the progressives and have done a good job of .squelching them to date. Hence. Governor Phi LaFollette. well aware of this fact, hns clearly defined the political trend of the future in the United States as being between two great elements —progressive or liberal as you choose to call it, and conservative. We are inclined to doubt that the new political unit can make itself powerfully felt in a short time, but we do believe that if the major political parties fumble the ball, and continue the destructive internal fighting they are now engaging in, the National Progressive party will bring into its ranks men and women from both parties whose viewpoints are liberal and progressive, in the hope that within the boundaries of a new organization, they can succeed where old-line parties have failed them One of the best signs of whether or not a new parly may tarry any future weight, i* the fact that every maior * ol'amnut commentator whether liberal or coiiM-i'vat i\v, has consider*'! the move of enough inipui'anee to devote a lull a'luinii lo tht possibilities fif such ar or^.ir.r/ itiuii.

Ed Hanson will direct the pageant to be presented in connection with the Fourth of July relebrntion at the fairground, and has quite a job cut out for her. Some 35 to 50 persons will be taking part in the pageant, which will be built nroun'd nn Iowa Centennial year theme, and will take approximately an hour or slightly more to present. Mrs. Hanson is experienced In this type of work. * * » Herman HnuherR is the author of a page of fine penmanship in the Palmer method textbook. Herman, some years ago, personally studied penmanship under the late Mr. Palmer who founded the system and method, now used in practically all U. S. schools. * * V Barber*, like others, have hobbies. Berber Bill Weis has some wonderfully carved pieces at his shop, which are unusual specimens of handicraft. Barber Carl Van Hoven carves out regulation bows and arrows in his spare time, and they make a mean looking weapon, too. in case you'ra mad at somebody. Our friends occasionally accuse us of being "nuts" on this Buy At Home subject, but we really mean ,it. in capital letters. Having gone into the furniture buying business, we've had ample opportunities to compare local and metropolitan city prices. Exactly the same suite as purchased here, was priced $22 lower 140 miles away, EXCEPT that it was three pieces at the distant point instead of four pieces as here, and a nice spring was thrown in here in addition. Add that up. and throw in the time and expense of a round trip of 240 miles, and what do you gain. OR LOSE? A local clothier has a pair of boys' overalls, exactly the same make as sold In a large mail order house, but for five cents less locally. Add cost of postage, plus shipping' charge, plus buying where you have little chance of "making it right" if necessary, and what have you gained. OR LOST So you can see, we're just as controversial on the point as ever. At Tucson, Arizona, a happy Juxtaposition of news briefs occurred as follows in the Tucson "Star." "THEFT of nine hens was reported yesterday by Mrs. on Lowell Road. Six of the hens were white and three red." And just below that, the following: "A chicken dinner will be served by Phillips chapel, C. M. E. church (colored M. E.) today from 11:30 a. m. to 7:30 p. m. Deliveries can be obtained by calling ." • • * • Life magazine has finally settled the controversy about skirts and shorts and slacks for all time. In their issue last week, they carried three full pages of gals in slacks, explaining the growth of their popularity, and the extreme benefits of comfort and freedom afforded by same. We hope that UEO of the Kossuth Advance will now admit that he has beer, on the wrong "ide of the fence what with slack season at hand and everything. • • fc SUCCESS STORY IN NUTSHELL: One of our more prominent Kossuth farmer* could tell the following story, if he chose, as the key to the influence that brought him success. He was thtn a young man. with a pretty young wife. The young couple wanted to buy corn, but to do so -\ loan of $125 would be necessary. They were refused the loan. This was many years ago. Th" corn wan sold to another man, and hauled right by their farm. Then ami there, the couple decided things would be different Kach took turns driving teams, caring for stock, working day and often nights. Today, some ,'!0 years later, their will-to-work has brought them peace and security. Their name on a note for $125 or 100 times that amount would be. hundred percent security, i thing-, sometimes, the spark of taken as one From sin- .-,u . f.-s> co'iies l.iiit—Hiiliy, you an- nun com- pis mentis.

Burns, a Narberth, Pa., lectrical engineer, strung a single vire around his property, a foot above the ground, attached the wire o his 110-volt electric light sys- em. When a trespassing dog graz- d the wire, it got an electric shock, ran away yelping. Soon he Society for the Prevention of >uelty to Animals heard about Mr. Jurns' electric fence, asked for an njunction to compel -him to remove t. After testing the fence last week, the Philadelphia Electric Co. renounced its amperage too low to mrm dogs or chidlren, anu the S. P. C. A. called off the suit. Though such devices may be langerous to animals in wet weath- r. they are a big boon to the U. S. armer. Ordinary fences are ex- ensive, require several strands of vire, wear out quickly. If equipped with barbs, as most of them ire, they occasionally injure an- mals severely. Electric fences can ie put up at about a third the cost if the old-type fence and the op- rating expense is negligible—usually not more than 18 cents a month. The better fences giva short Intermittent anoclts. so that animals will not "freeze" to the wire, as they might If the current were strong and steady.

Most of them consist of a single wire, though many farmers use two. or even three, for small animals. Two or three feel above the ground, the wires are conectcd to the 110-voIt electric supply line or to a 6-volt battery mrough a controller which governs the voltage and current so that the fence will shock livestock without injury. A survey Idaho took two years ago showed that the state's farmers are turning more and more to electric fences, are finding new uses for them. Among them: to stop hogs from rooting under woven-wire fences; to prevent animals from raiding chicken house at night; to keep cows in adjoining pastures from nosing each other, tnus prevent the spread of Bang's disease. \\OKK WEEK IN WASHINGTONWASHINGTON: In a heavy week's work preparatory to his ^•ajibbean cruise, the President ,ent to congress his long-awaited message on anti-monopoly legisla- ion, signed the biggeat (»500,000,0001 regular Navy appropriation in U. S. peacetime history. While the Senate debated his $1,500,000,000 .Navy Expansion Bill, the President also put in a request for an additional $25.000.000 to provide for starling work on two more battle- ips to bring the total currently planned or under construction to lie. The President also was visttei by the man who, more than any other in the U. K, personifies to millions the triumph of the rugged virtues of the American Way — Henry Ford. With Motormaker Ford was his son. Edsel and Publicist William J. Cameron. It was Henry Ford's first meeting with the President since World War days when he manufactured submarine chasers for Assistant Sec- reatry of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt. ish syndicates. "Absolute secrecy was essential to prevent prices from being raised by knowledge (among food sellers) of the government coming Into the market. Had it been known, of course, the effect on prices would have been disadvantageous to consumers generally as well as to the government." Sir John Simon was. in effect, saying that U. S. wheatmen have not been asking as much as they would have asked had not he and Prime Minister Chamberlain been so secretive, and by the same token U. S. citizens have not had to pay as much for wheat and bread as otherwise would have been the JEWISH PROPERTY, GERMANY, CONFISCATED— BERLIN: Hard pressed to find money to finance the Third Reich's armament race. Field Marshal Hermann Wilhelm Goering last week prepared to adopt outright thievery as an economy policy, signed a decree providing for confiscation of practically all Jewish property throughout Greater Germany. Jewish real estate and money holdings in Germany a?e estimated at, in- German Austria at $300,000,000. The sweeping Goer- Ing decree demanded registration of all Jewish holdings worth more than $2,000 (5,000 marks) and forbade sales and transfers of Jew- permlsslon. Go*ring also provided stiff prison terms for teealcltrantt using "Aryan" dummies or splitting up th*lif properties. Nttl spokesmen admitted that the decree was a preliminary measure to dispossession and confiscation of what Jewish wealth remained in Germany. VIENNA: Believing the Easier truce on anti-Semitic demonstrations over, prankish. Storm Troopers rounded up hundreds of Jews in Vienna's parks, marshaled them Into parade formation, roared with laughter when they forced them to perform a burlesque of the goose step through the city's antusement centre. The troopers made Jewish cafe patrons scrub floors and wash windows, and escorted through the streets customers from Jewish stores who were forced to carry signs reading: "I am an Aryan pig. I bought from a Jewish shop." * * • VIENNA: Meanwhile, the official Vienna Nazi newsorgan "Volklsch- r Beobachter", after declaring that yy 1942 no Jew would have the opportunity to earn a living In Vienna, warned: "Jews; Abandon all nope. Our net Is so fine that you will not find a hole In It through which you can slip to return to the fleshpots of Egypt. There Is only one possibility for you: emigrate—If someone will accept you." But Lhe Nazi organ declared there will be "no pogroms", reminded every one that "Germany is a land of just- Ice." • • • NEW YORK: In Manhattan arrived Fuhrer Fritz Kuhn of The German-American Bund after a trip to Germany and Austria. Met by two gray-coated, black-trouser- ed Bund officers, Fuhrer Kuhn brought back a message from German Jews to American Jews. "I talked with lots and lots of Jews In Germany," Kuhn said, "and they all told me this: Tell the Jews In America to let us alone. We're all right.' Thousands of Jews are returning to Germany and I was really surprised to see how many Jewish stores were open." BUSINESS: FIRST QUARTER NOTES- NEW YORK: "The present outlook Is very poor." said President Walter P. Paepcke of Container Corp., as he announced last week his company's ommlssion of the usual quarterly dividend. Container's first quarter net dropped off from a 1937 profit of $26,970 to a 1938 loss of $53.193, and wth few exceptions the same sort of thing was being experienced last week by almost every other U. S. industry. Samples of comparative 1937 and 1938 first-quarter figures: U. S. Steel down from a $28.561.533 profit to a $1,292,151 deflct; Schenley Distillers down from a $1,570,928 profit to a $364,712 profit; General Motors down frW» 166 to $8,884,017: Standard Brand* down from |8 1 885 > 4M to f Paramount picture* down $9,081,000 to $880,866.
