TRAVELING PRESIDENT NOTHING NEW One might assume from certain caustic utterances both verbally over the radio and editorially in the arch-republican press that President Roosevelt, by making a trip across the United States, was doing something unprecedented and unfair in American history. It might also be assumed that to have the president seem particularly friendly to him during his last administration was an outrage. American history records plenty of traveling by U. S. presidents, of both parties, and they didn't always travel to see the country, but sometimes had political motives in mind. Personally, aa a big nation, it seems to us that to have the president of the land get out and travel around occasionally, interview people, and see what Is going on and how they live west of the Allegheny mountains is a good thing. We've have too many presidents who failed to keep in touch with the rank and file of citizens; if we have one now who likes to see men with sweat on their brows and women in gingham dresses, we're glad of it And if he puts in a few good words for hij friends, what of it. He's elected on a basis of politics, and he can be defeated the same way. What is unnatural in having the nation's chief executive traveling around, meeting people, defending his administration, and boosting his friends? And (^rangely enough) with congress adjourned the stock market comes to life. Perhaps it has been congress more than the president who has cast a cloud of misapprehension over the land. Or is it the election of a 31-year-old man to the head of th« New York stock exchange has brought about a change in attitude. In any case, it is most welcome. IS THERE PLENTY OF WORK FOR EVERYBODY? A criticism leveled frequently at all attempts to provide relief for unemployed is that the unemployed do not want to work anyway, so why should those who do work have to care for others out of work. The Iowa Employment office in Algona reports that it has 125 men listed who want farm work, but BO far the demand has been at a standstill. There seems to be at least 123 in this section who would work If they could find something to do. Relief has become a nightmare and seemingly a never-ending problem in many respect*. It h.v« been abused, mismanaged, und overdone. But the fundamental fuct still remains that men who want to work are out of work. Until we can hucceed in readjusting our system somehow so that everyone with a desire to work has a chance to do so the question of relief will remain a paramount problem of the nation. There arc, of course, bums and panhandlers just as there seem to have always been. The real problem 1=i not to care for them, but to care for a better tv-,~ of cituen who have had jobs in the past, or might be expected to get jobs if the jobs were available At Charles City, a pet dog died from overfeeding and too much kindness, which immediately brings to mind our friend "Nippy", who watches over Norm Rice carefully, but who Is gaining in rotundity that bespeaks too easy a life and too much food. * * • Frank Sbilt* In commenting on the Hughe* flight to Europe, told the following story about a colored boy who had said he preferred to be in a traln-wrccK than in a ship-wreck. "Why?" he was asked. "Wai, sun, on a ship it's 'where are you' and on a train it's 'there you sre.' " * * * Joe Lone and Pine Room waitresses vie with each other at noon to inflict jokes on the other. First Joe offered to pay for his meal with a $20 bill, then the girl gave him a piece of pie thin as a knife and Joe retaliated by ordering a nickel piece of pie ... the thing has no end of possibilities. * • • July Is the month of picnics. It has been suggested by our Picnic Editor that the same effect can be had by picking up a few stray ants, mixing them with sand, and sprinkling liberally over sandwiches right on the kitchen table. * * * That New Vork gent Ham Fish, raps the democrats, raps Hamilton and raps F. D. R. That makes him an outstanding Rapublican Representative. # * » The retort snappy, between bachelor girls who share an apartment, but met in a local store: "Where have you been for two weeks. I haven't seen you?" "Well, if you'd come home once in awhile, you'd find me there." The epic klttenball battle between the White Rose and Hub teams cost Junior Kelly the slight sum of S5. He passed up a job which would have netted him that much, in order to play with the Hub. But despite the fact that he hit a long homer, his team lost, so Junior might as well have earned his five bucks. News Items of Wesley Vicinity Enjoy Trip to Ledges I Mrs. Vernon Ewing of Swea City- Mrs. Nels Johnson, Augusta formerly Katherine Cruise, visited One police call light is hardly enough. The other rlay the lone light on the telephone building burned out. and until contact was made with the police on foot, the call could not be answered. A second light woulr! double the quickness of response to calls, atid also provide an emergency light in case one should burn out. * » * Boli LnBarre says that the I'niverslty of Iowa team this fall will be the best in five years. Here's hoping. * » » The \vind—or something—played u mean trick on Sheriff Casey Loss, Thursday afternoon. Tt seems that Casey went Into the vault in the auditor's office, and while in there, the blamed door blew shut and locked him in. About that time, the fuse blew out. and there was the sheriff in total darkness. He WHS in the vault about 20 minutes. Casey, however, being in the sleuthing business, is a bit dubious about the wind having blown the vault door shut p.nd also locking it, and does not consider It a mere concidenco that the lights went out at the same time. He is working on the case, and says if he finds that someons was playing monkey-shines on him, he has u nice bed over in the jail which someone is going to occupy. * * • J. D. Ixme played a round of golt, last week, and after threatening to quit twice, finally ended the round. He says he never was good at arithmetic, so didn't bother to add the score. Next day he got a telegram reading: "Have heard of your sensational golf game of yesterday, Invite you to enter St. Paul Open for $10.000 in prize money. Signed, Ralph Guldahl." * » • Can It IM- the extreme warmth of the sun, or Is it just our imagination, but it stems to us that more find more of our citizens are Inking on an extremely sunburned complexion. * * * If Dutch I.orcnz and III White don't get to the Pacific Coast, it won't be because they di'ln't get plenty of advice about which road to take and where to go. Hi thinks if they follow all the advice they may wind up in Mexico. Look out for cactus, boys. Swainson. Mrs. J. T. Bohannon oi Algona and Mrs. Esther Skow and Harold went to Boone.
