MINISTERIAL MISERIES Every line of work, of course. h»s Its woes. But while you may feel blue about your own. consider that of those gentlemen of the clergy. First, their salaries come from donated support of the congregations. That means that when one group likes a minister, they may give freely. When they don't, they give sparsely. And. very seldom does one find any congregation which se*s things in the same light If the older folks like the pastor, chances are he may be a bit too stodgy for the younger ones If the younger ones like him. it is likely that older folks have the reverse idea. If the preacher sticks entirely to the old method of preaching, using the Bible and its quotations in detail for his text, part of his congregation prefer? to play golf or sleep late. If he u?es modern them?v and discusses questions which more or less hav< i bearing on present day life, interpreted from the angle of religion of course, he is breaking awny from the old method and although he may drav.- younger folks into the church, many of the elders will find it hard to stomach. It is a debateabi.' point as to which type Jesus Christ would prefer. If the minister joins his congregation in lively gatherings or maybe his wife goes to a card party. he is looked at askance by some of his congregation. If he refuses to mingle in such gathering". he foregoes a chance to really become acquainted outside of the church with many of his flock. If the roof leaks, it Is the minister's fault. If the hymn book pages get torn, it is his fault. If attendance drops for a month as compared with a year ago, it Is his fault.' If the other pastor down the street gets a family into the church that formerly went to our church. Its the pastor's fault. If he has ideas and expresses them, he is too forward and too far away from the gospel. If he doesn't express them, he Is either being a hypocrite, or worso, perhaps doesn't have any Ideas. The life of a minister must be one that certainly will bring its reward in Heaven, for to us there are angles of It on earth that remind us of stories of the other place. Opinions of Other Editors will have it. We are all In the same fix. Inflation will ease the load. The danger then is that we may do as Germany did, and listen to some Huey Long who will promise to ease our load if we will give him power to use force In his plans. Pressed on all sides by debt and ruinous taxes there Is a slight chance that the people may listen. But the indications are that strong men will come to the front at that time and point to the straight road ahead and the people will follow It. The Auditing Draft Humboldt Republican: In this Issue Is a clipping from the Clarion Monitor relative to the "auditing" of the city's books. The work of the various auditing committees over the state seems to have left a distinctly bad taste in the mouths of the citizens. It is said that the committees have chnrged sometimes as high as $1,000 to audit a cltys books—and a small city at that. The general opinion is that "something smells." Kruarhel Between Two Fires Clarion Monitor: Governor Kraschcl la In H pretty tignt jilacc since he is a candidtae for rcclec- tion. A large majority of the people favor the* Maytag Co.. while on the other hand the various unions naturally support the C. I. O. stand. The governor has handled the situation very tac-tfully up to thin time. With nearly half of the union members willing to go to work, it would beem their cause was weakening. • * * Tin- Huge Deficit Humboldt Republican: The United States treas ury has ended its eighth year in red ink. The national debt now is approximately $278 per person or about $1112 per family of four. Remember, this in national debt alone. Figuring state, county and municipal debt the American people right now probably owe a total of $2.000 or more per family. When you subtract the families that simply can not pay their share it will run to many times that on the families that can. In the meantime the poorer folks are paying taxes on practically everything they eat, wear or consume. These taxes add materially to the cost of living. Six years ago the administration told UH that in a very t",w years the budget would be balanced and we would begin to pay the debt we had accumulated. Now a balanced budget is never mentioned. It is taken for granted that the debt will continue to pile up until a new administration comes in. At that lime it will r.robably be arouid forty- five billion dollars - -the limit that financiers set to Uncle Karn's solvent y. After that the whole thing will, if we t'.o not rhange- our ways, blow up like a bubble. How will it blow up'' Well, we will have inflation. We can'l hi IP it because we can never pay our debts ;;•> they .ilaiid No administration in the future will dan- t'i put the people on a budget that v.-iil p-iy 'ill the present debt. Then- would he not and Mo'odihrd. So inflation will be a necessity.

For example, one tow-headed urchin demanded flatly. "Where was you born'"' Miss Pederson replied. "Ames." 'Well, how far away is that?" asked the urchin. "Oh, about one hundred miles." he was told. "Well." quoth the youngster. "I was born in Michigan, that's about a thousand miles away."

The state copper came upon a car stalled near Algona and investigating found that it was encumbered with: one ill woman, se.'cn <7> children, and one Hi flat tire, and yea. no spare. When those factors are added up it meant that the patrolman had to remove, patch and replace the tiie on one of the recent most sultry days, thereby subtracting several pounds from the said patrolman. • * * A nutty republican mint have thought thin up: "FOR has a Phi Beta Kappa key that he got 25 years aftter he graduated He shouldn't be ashamed of that—mathematics is probably the only subject that kept him from winning it in college.

SECOND YEAR'S END OF SPANISH WAR MORA DE RUBDZLOS, Spain: Celebrated on both sides of Spain's ever-changing battle line last week was the second anniversary of the blood civil war In which more than 1.000,000 of Spain's 23,500,000 people are estimated to have lost their lives—In battles, In street fighting, before overworked execution sqads of both sides. In two years, cities, villages and countrysides had been ruthlessly pillaged, bombed and destroyed; .the country's economic life had been ruined; Important — nations had aligned against each Read The Want Ads—It Pays. Patricia the U. S.: "The Is not whether Mexico should pursue social and economic policies designed to improve the standard c/ living of its people. The Issue is whether, in pursuing '.horn. the property of American nationals may be taken by the Mexican government without making prompt payment of Just compensation to the owners in accordance with the universally recognized rules of law and equity." From 1S15 to 1S27. declared Secretary Hull. Mexico seized 161 "moderate sized" properties of U. S. citizens. "Not a single claim has been adjusted and none has been flying", decided to finish off with r super-specatcular dive ending in a "half roll" swoop between the two grandstands, barely far enough apart for his plane to pass between.

"Certainly on the basis of the record above stated, the United States government cannot be accused of being unreasonable or impatient." Declared Secretary Hull: "The MILEAGE TONIC There's no summer slump for cars that are filled with Phillips 66. This extra energy gasoline is custom tailored to fit the weather conditions right here— which means a cooler running motor and more miles. It was verified that all pilots had received orders not to fly lower than 500 feet. South Americans especially regretted that the Colombian tragedy occurred on the insth anniversary of the birth of their great hero and "liberator", Simon Bolivar. taking of property without compensation Is expropriation. It is confiscation. It ia no less confiscation because there may be an expressed intent to pay at some time in the future. Therefore Mr. Hull requested that Mexico arbitrate the question of whether it has complied with international law l "It is the considered judgment however, of the United States that the Government of Mexico has not complied"', and th; amounts and terms by which Mexico will make good.
