What he predicted has come to pass. You know where to find Senator Dickinson. This country must get oft of the road It Is traveling, and drivers like Dickinson can be trusted to select the right road. The senator was considered too radical 10 years ago when he was called the "hell raiser" for agriculture. He is Just as stalwart, staunch a friend of the farmer as he ever was. When he started his career in congress It was not popular at all to be fighting for an agricultural program. Senator Dickinson engineered two Mc- Narey-Haugen bills through congress and ran Into a presidential veto. But the senator kept on fighting and wilt continue the fight, in or out of the senate. He looks like a sure winner in the primary when he ha* the endorsement of such recognized farm leaders as former Governor Dan Turner. • • * Funny Fumbling Corn Allotments Des Moines Plain Talk: No wonder farmers are up in arms against Secretary Wallace's new corn allotment acreage. A southern Iowa farmer who farms about 600 acres informed us the other day that Mr. Wallace's men had set hsi acreage allotment at 56 acres. Strange to say he is not kicking about that because he is principally engaged In stock raising and his acreage will give him enough corn for his feeding needs. But he does think the powers that be down at Washington hare pulled a bonehead in their allotment of com land to a neighboring farmer. This farmer has an 80-acre farm, all well adapted to corn raising. His allotment is three acres. What nonsense that is. •Let Hie people tnrow tfee troWi tat the country Is safe,"—Abraham Iterate. MEMORIAL DAT AFTERTHOUGHT Millions of Americans stood. Monday, at Memorial Day services throughout the nation, and paid tribute to departed friends and relatives, with special ceremonies for those who died as a result of serving their country patriotically in time of war. The heroic dead are deserving of all the heartfelt sympathy and appreciation that mankind can muster. And as those millions stood at the graves of dead soldiers, conditions throughout the world, unsettled and troubled, lead oie to ponder if many millions more may soon be mourned by bereaved relatives because of the administrative folly of the world's leaders. There is no real excuse for war or serious conflict between nations, but some can profit by it, without risking their own necks, and they therefore keep the flame of conflict alive. Throughout our own nation there are many groups of citizens, of all rank and station in life, who are striving to keep the United States and its diplomatic relations on an even keel, and free of influence from mercenary sources which might lead to war. The American Legion has even introduced a measure that is a wide departure from previous methods, and would conscript not only men, but all forms of resources in time of war. Such a measure would cause even the war-baiting group to stop and reflect upon their actions. May the efforts of these groups to maintain a sane equilibrium and keep us on the path of peace continue. Experiments Ackley World: Secretary of Agriculture Wallace evidently appreciates the fact that he "has an axe to grind." He doesn't appear to be satisfied with anything that anybody does, but himself—and few. very few are willing to say that Wallace is "the right man in the right place." During the years that he has served as head of the department of agriculture, he has been the most expensive and destructive "experiment" that the present experimenting administration has had. although Ickes of the interior department, follows closely. • • • Wallace In De«p Water Hum bold t Independent: Secretary Wallace Is persisting in disagreeing with the judges of the Supreme Con it. The secretary is a very foolish man. Chief Justi?e Hughes has had such a volume of experience and has such valuable training that Wallace is no more than a kindergarten pupil in his hands. The more Wallace squabbles the worse he will look. CONGRATULATIONS! RALPH ANDERSON Ralph Anderson of Ringsted is the new editor and owner of the Clear Lake Mirror. Ralph has done a great job at Ringsted, where he has been handling the management of his father's newspaper for the past few years since graduation mark for himself In the newspaperdom of Iowa. His choice of Clear Lake as a location, after careful study and thought, is also a gooa one. He has chosen a good community and the community in turn has received a fine addition in this personable young man. We am most sincere in our wishes of the best In everything to Ralph, and we hope that despite the 40 or so miles between Clear Lake and Algona, it will not be a long time between visits, as those governors once said. Opinions of Other Editors True Then— True Now! Mason City Globe-Gazette: "If in some crises When lightning struck a transformer near the Swift & Co. plant last Thursday evening, it also plunged the packed high school auditorium into darkness for a few moments. However, the faculty was not in the least upset and produced enough candles to carry on for a brief period necessary until repairs were made. The same thing happened out at the Country Club, where a Dutch lunch was in progress. Not even a bolt of lightning can stop a commencement—or a Dutch lunch. « * • Just to show there are exception, perhaps only a few to be sure, to the general feeling about back- dor transients, we tell the following story. A rather nice looking, middle-aged man, asked a housewife if he could do some work for her and wanted only In return an old shirt She needed storm window* taken off, and screens put on, and To the traveler went to work. He worked nearly all day, and enjoyed the housewife's free meal at noon. When his work was finished she handed him two shirts—both regulation, white collar-type shirts. His face fell: "Lady, I'd like an old blue work shirt, if you have any," he said. She didn't have any, but she did give him a dollar. "Well, maybe I can trade these for work shirts" he said as he thanked her and walked away. With the March of Progress Queen contest net to get under way on the vote-getting end of it, June 6th. just a few words regarding the set up. The young lady who wins the trip will not have to make the trip by herself, but will join a group of other young ladies from all sections of the middle west at Chicago, when the tour starts along in September. She will, however, have private accommodations on both train and steamship and will not share berths. But the group itself will afford her the chance to not only see more than half of the United States and a Canadian province as well, but IV.A n«,,„„_,„_. n i_ j ,; . ~—••- -..<.«.o uuiicu oiaica mm a i,anaaian province as well but or^TrruX e \^ y or± D ' n = ?-* >r •*• * *™ * —«?—«-•*.«- grouP or so, it can usually borrow temporarily on reasonable terms. But If, like a spendthrift, it throws discretion to the winds. U willing to make no sacrifice at sll in spending, extends its taxation to the limit to pay, and continues to pile up deficits, it is on the road to bankruptcy." The above quotation is from a distinguished source. It was taken from a campaign address delivered by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932. What Mr. Roosevelt said was true then It is true now.

This mop. which will retail for $2.95 or thereabouts, has a dual handle control, whereby the housewife can not only mop, but also squeeze out the soaked liquid in the mop, when she wants to, without any other work than the mere pressing of a handle.

Prepared by the Editors of TIM* Thf Weekly Netvrmagmint SPRING GARDENINGWASHINGTON: Although Frankin Roosevelt early this year prom- sed to keep hands off the sensitive iprlng crop of Democratic primaries ly last week he had directly or indirectly dug his gardening tools nto most of them: South Carolina's Governor Olln 'ohnston, announcing his Intent to nter his state's senatorial primary ext August, trumpeted: My ampaign will be based on a record f constant, unshakable loyalty to he Democratic platform and the ead of our party, President Roos- veil." In Kentucky, Senate Majority Leader Alben Barkley's campaign or reelection was proceeding with ctive White House support, hav- ng begun last January with a orthright letter of endorsement rom the president. In California, William Gibbs Mc- doo, last fortnight facing a tough our-corner fight, was able to pull n encouraging "Dear Mac" letter rom his pocket. In Wisconsin, Francis Ryan Duf- ' received an unmistakable White louse pat, almost as broad as the ndorsement of Son-Secretary Jas. Roosevelt which helped boost Florda's Claude Pepper to victory a month ago. In Oregon, crusty, one-time New Dealer Governor Charles H. Martin ras opposed for renominatlon by ne-tlme State Senator Henry L. tesse, who received oblique White louse support through letters from •".ecretary Ickes and Nebraska's leorge Norris. Martin was edged Ut 57,727 to 50,900. In Pennsylvania, political observ- rs thought they saw a slump in oosevelt influence when Thomas Cennedy (endorsed by Jim Farley, enator Joe Guffey and John L. ,ewls) was beaten in the gubernat- rial primaries by the regular Dem- cratic candidate, Charles Alvin ones. But however indefinable the ef- ct of Roosevelt influence on state rimaries, and vice versa, appear- d last week, more certain waa the ersonal popularity of Franklin oosevelt when preliminary results f its forthcoming survey were made ublic by Fortune. Survey figures how that 54.7 per cent of the elect- rate approve Mr. Roosevelt, 34.4 er cent disapprove, 10.9 per cent don't know", thus indicating prac- cally no change in popular sentient since 1936. Concluded Fortune: "Whether usiness can stand two. four or six ears more of what Mr. Roosevelt lands for is beside the point. Bus- nesa may have no choice in the natter. For the chances that any mportant number of Mr. Roos- velfs men will be defeated in the rimaries this year are very slim " ECOND SARAJEVO?— PRAGUE: One night last week s the blatant Nazi sub-minoritv f the Sudeten German minority in zechoslovakia indulged in a ter- oristic campaign preparatory to nuiucipal elections at week's end wo Sudeten Germans astride a mot-' rcycle roared along the road to ermany near the Czech town of diregarded an order by a heb, zech traffic patrol to halt" Word ashed ahead to the next patrol and hen the cyclists again refused to alt, the guards opened fire. Both ^errnans were killed. "Brutal Murder of Two Germans y Czechs—Prague's Appalling lood Guilt", screamed the German ress in blood-red headlines, as an- ous Czech officials explained the uards had merely done their duty, lat both Germans were notorious azi agitators in previous political rouble. Meanwhile the wires in very European chancellory humled: "Would Cheb be the second urajevo?" In quick ordtr events took on the spect of a second "Austrian coup" "Der Angriff". Nazi Propaganda Minister Goebbc-l.i<' newssheet. declared that Czech President Benes was "no longer master of the situation" (just as Austrian Nazi Chief Styss-Inquart had "invited" O«r many to take control because Aus tria "wus no longer master" of its own situation). Simultaneously German troops were reported moving into positions along the Czech frontier. But dynamic little Eduard Benes wasted little time in showing the Nazis just who was master of the situation. Declared he: "We will show the neighboring regimes that the machinery of a democratic state can work just as fast as theirs." Same day an order went out calling to colors an entire class of reserves, 70,000 strong, and as men dropped factory tools to grab bundles of clothes and rifles, troop trains rumbled toward the border where Czechoslovakia soon had some 400,000 men jammed against Germany's sides. Meanwhile British Ambassador Neville Henderson, in Berlin, refused to believe German reports that her troop movements were merely routine transfers, issued an amazing order for a special train to be held to evacuate Britishers from Berlin, sent such a grave report to London that a special cabinet meeting was called. As Czech elections were run cff without mishap, as Sudeten Nazi- leader Konrad Henleln began talks with Czech Premier Milan Hodza over satisfying the German minority's demands. and as little Czechoslovakia showed the world It was no Impotent Austria. Adolf Hitler, badly outmaneuvered diplomatically for the first time in years, faced the embarrassing task of (1) counteracting the "war Kuilt" charge that quick-acting Great Britain had thrust upon Germany, (2* exerting careful pressure on Prague to cancel the mobilzatlon which threatens to make Czechoslovakia an easily-ignited world tinder-box. And thus to British Prime Mln Ister Neville Chamberlain's new formula for assuring peace to trou bled Europe came a major set-back this week. To Britain's anxioun prime minister came but one comfort, allegedly from Adolf Hitler himself: Germany has not the slightest Intention of marching In to Czechoslovakia at this stage of RELIEF & DEPRESSION II— In DETROIT: United Auto Workers' President Homer Martin last week addressed this letter to Michigan's Relief Administration: "It has come to our attention that our Flint welfare director, while receiving pay from the union, has also been receiving welfare from the Emergency Relief Administration. We have asked for and received the resignation of this man In CLEVELAND: Promised Mayor Harold S. Burton: "No one in the city will starve even though it means taking all the city's money for relief operations." and 79,000 Clevelanders got short rations last week instead of checks from the city's fundless, still broken down relief agencies. In CHICAGO: All 19 relief stations banged shut their doors, while 34.000 of Chicago's 93,000 relief cases last week got, instead of checks, baskets doled out by Federal Surplus Commodities Corporation. In WASHINGTON: Unemployment Census Director John D. Big- jers added a garnish reminder to the relief problem by releasing final figures on the total unemployed registering last November: 7,845016 This did not include: (li an estimated 28 per cent who did not register, (2) the huge increase in unemployment occurring since his census was taken. Other items of Depression II: Madame Secretary Perkins estimated that 3,000,000 U. S. workers have been laid off since fall, that those still working are getting lighter pay envelopes. Masachusetu factory workers lost 2.S per cent of their jobs, 4.7 per cent of their income from March :o April. But wholesale and retail trade payrolls improved. Endicott-Johnson, employed 20,000 shoe workers in five New York cities announced a wage cut of five per cent, atop a 10 per cent cut last month. In Chicago's packing industry, employment and wages held up. At S. W. O. C. headquarters in Pittsburgh, steel job* were reported down to 300,000 from 602,000 last August. But lumber production, carload- ings, power production, steel ingot production, although far below last year, were up last week, or better than trend. —o— PETTICOATED DEVILVIENNA: When eleven years ago Viennese Erail Marek lost a leg; his hard luck turned to fortune when the $42,875 Insurance he collected enabled him to finance an invention. When shortly after the invention failed and Emil Marek fell ill and died, bis 3-year-old daughter, Inegborg, an aunt, Suzanne Loewenstein, and the family seamstress, Anna KUtenberg, followed him to the grave.

NAVAJO NAZIS- OKLAHOMA CITY: In August, 1924, a German beer-hall putsch- leader named Adolf Hitler sat In Cell No. 7 of a Munich jail, pondered Nazi philosophy-to-be, established as his political symbol, the Swas tika. In August, 1924, the Arizona department of the 45th Division of the U. S. National Guard, with headquarters at Oklahoma City, adopted as its insignia an old Navajo Indian good-luck emblem—the Swastika. Last week German newspapers burst forth with a photograph of U. 3. soldiers wearing swastikas on the left shoulders of their uniforms No Nazi editor bothered to print the simple explanation of the picture from which all good Nazis were encouraged to make typical Nazi deductions. Read one picture aption: "The swastika is a badge of honor in the American Army! STAR OF AGESHOLLYWOOD: Save for a brief road tour in 1931-32, a short stand n 1934, oldtime Actress Maude Adms ("Peter Pan." "The Little Minster") has made no stage appearance since she retired in 1918. Recently 65-year-old Actress Adams ook a screen test at -Culver City, California. Last week the result was announced: Miss Adams will star in a picture David Selznick plans to produce next fall. Said iroud Cinemogul Selznick: "It will be a privilege to Introduce her for the first time to the millions of the new generation." SPY SCAREBERLIN: When U. S. Department of Justice officials last February arrested a brush-haired American youth of Austrian parentage, Ouerc ther Rumrich, former U. 8. Army sergeant, and a plump German frau- lein, Johanna Hofmann, they thought they had broken a spy-case of international dimensions. Star witness for government agents waa a Manhattan doctor, Ignatz T. Griebel, addressee of a letter found among Miss Hofmann's effects, naturalized U. S. citizen, holder of a secret code used by Miss Hofmann, and one time president of the now- defunct Friends of New Germany. What was the embarrassment of government men when, at the outset of the investigation last week, they learned that Ignatz Griebel was aboard the "Bremen" on high seas bound for Germany. At Cherbourg French authorities were denied permissio to search the ship for him. On docking at Germany he waa promptly arrested. Officials promised speedy punishment The punishment: 60 marks (123). The crime: entering Germany without a passport (which he had forgotten in his rush). On the grounds that his offense against the U. S. was political, not civil, officials permitted Star Witness Griebet to re- mat in Germany unmolested. Meanwhile, reporters jumped to the conclusion that Griebel, ready to turn state's evidence, had been kidnapped by loyal spies on the "Bremen", or havlgn fooled Justice Department agents, he had been arrested by his own government as a blind.
