Why don't we get back to a more permanent prosperity? Why are there" more people out of a job today than in Hoover's time? Well, the disturbances caused by union labor have a lot to do with It What Incentive Is there for any man or group of men to build up industries and employ men when these conditions exist? V-r-i- *** Scoffs at Government Debt Humboldt Independent: Secretary of Agriculture Wallace In his speech before the Iowa state democratic convention scoffed at the national debt, and declared that the debt today (considering all debts In the United States) is not as heavy as it was at a former period. A public man who scoffs at debt shows mighty poor political judgment. It is evident that he has not grasped the true situation. Also It may be said that Secretary Wallace may be the very man to fail to recognize a financial crisis. There was one noticeable occasion In his life where he failed to properly Visualize the future. That was when he bought the Iowa Homestead and mortgaged his own Wallace's Farmer In the deal. Dante Pierce promoted that deal, and Dante Pierce now owns both the Homestead and Wallace's Farmer. From reading the public records relative to the closing out of the Wallace interests, one could not help wondering how the Wallaces could have imagined a future that would permit them to meet the obligations they assumed. Certainly no man who could visualize the future would have thus obligated himself. It is proof positive that the Wallaces are not good financiers. Mr. Wallace's words before the democratic convention are additional proof of the fact. Henry Wallace should revise his estimates. He should realize the responsibility of debt—government as well as private debt If he does not he will lead his people Into the same "slough of despond" that he found himself in. In fact, Mr. Wallace Is anything but practical. He Is essentially theoretical. His arguments and conclusions have no solid basis. They are dangerous in the extreme. No one would suggest that Secretary Wallace IB Insincere or dishonest. But a majority of his best friends admit that his financial judgment is bad—very bad. • * • Is the World Getting Better? Sac Sun: We have a vivid recollection of attending a Democratic state convention in Burlington In 1912. As a young man we well remember that we were disgusted with the conduct of most of the delegates. It seemed that half of them were drunk "and an hilarious time was had by all." Last week we attended the Republican state convention In Des Molnes. We mingled with the delegates more or less for two days. And we did not see one person drunk during the entire convention. Have men learned to behave themselves better during the past 26 years? Do they take convention affairs more seriously today than they did In those good old days of Champ Clark and his "noun" dog"? Or—perish the thought—do Republicans know how to behave better than do the Democrats? • * * The Terrible Deficit The Commentator: The Treasury recently released a story to the effect that if all the money In circulation were divided equally every person in the United States would have {50.38. What the treasury failed to add was that If the national debt were divided the same way, every person would owe approximately $285. • * * Want Bigger and Better Relief Northwood Anchor: Another strike of relief "clients" In an eastern city, for bigger and better relief, with threats to wreck the relief office and the persons of the clerks In charge unless granted. A long time ago some fellow coined a terse phrase: "Beggars cannot be choosers." But he didn't live long enough to see fhat we are seeing nowadays. Pauline Van Horn, office nurse for Dr. P. V. Janse, had a great urge to garden, last spring, so she planted some tomato plants on the south side of the doctor's office. She carefully tended her "garden", and watched its progress with great anticipation. So did the boys across the street in Bill Dau's garage. Only drawback was that after the plants were full grown, no budding tomatoes appeared. Finally, one day, after she had practically given up hope, she went outside and lo and behold—there were several nice, red tomatoes. She gleefully prepared to pluck the fruits of the harvest, and then found that the tomatoes had been pinned to the vines. Bill Specht denies all accusations. * * * Ella Harr, a Bprightly girl with a pleading personality, won the county 4-H health championship, last week. She is the daughter of Mrs. Edna Harr, who lives and farms two and one-half miles soutli and east of Aigona. Examining physicians said tho girls entered this year were all so nearly perfect that they could hardly make a choice as to the winners. Iowa corn and Iowa sunshine and Iowa 4-H work are really doing something for the youngsters, and those who are devoting their time to 4-H leadership deserve more than passing thanks. Other county 4-H girls ranking high were Dorothy Shellingto i from Bancroft, Marjorie McClellan of the Sherman Shiners, Lavonne Ringsdorf of the Portland Peppy Pals, Geraldine Bruns of the Buffalo Boosters, Faith Finnestad of the Fenton Forwards, and Ruby Berg of the Swea Spirits of Service. * * * Then there in the young lad who was visiting his grandmother in Aigona, and asked her if it was all right for him to eat his pie with a fork. "Of course," his grandmother told him. "Well, grandma," the youngster asked, "have you a piece of pie around I could practice on." * * * Julian t'hrUchlUe* ha* gomething on the ball, all right. He announced a baseball game over the loudspeaker system the other night, and unless the fan* had not known who it was, they might have thought it was Clem McCarthy, Paul Sullivan or our old movie-struck Dutch Regan. » * * European dictators evidently believe in the freedom of the seize. * * * If it's true that the good die young, then some of us will probably live forever. * « * The only time Home wive* will U»teu to their husbands is when they talk in their sleep. * • * Two battered old relic* were kitting on a park bench, when one remarked, "I'm a guy who never took advice from anybody."

The room was equipped with a beautiful set of twin beds. Upon •eelng them, the bride began to cry, and the groom *aid, "Why what's the matter, honey."

Prepared by the Editor• of TIME The Weekly Newtmagatine UNDER NEW BILL- BILLION PUMPED WASHINGTON: Harold Secretary of Interior and Ickes mister of PWA, proudly radioed seafar- ng President Roosevelt last week jat the gau?p on his Public Work pump had ticked past the billion- dollar mark in 30 working: days ince the President signed the Lend- Spend bill, that the pump was stil pouring at the rate of $5,326,510 worth of work per hour. To pro- luce a billion's worth of work, PWA md earmarked nearly two-third >f its new 1969,000,000 (States and municipalities supplying the bal- nce), and still projects were f.ock- ng in for approval. Next Mr. Ickes told the country tiat he had made a deal with Jesse 'ones whereby RFC, to which Con- ;ress voted $1,500,000,000 for loans o business and to states and munic- palitles, would bulwark PWA's ending program with $250,000,0000 or big, revenue-producing projects. Mr. Jones' loans will release an qua) amount of Mr. Ickes' money or outright granting instead of oaning. will thus bring PWA's work reducing potential up to $1,917, 00,000. When projects are approved, tales and cities have learned how o translate the money on Mr. Ickes' books quickly into business orders and action. They do not have to get Mr. Ickes' checks to place orders; material and building contractors have learned to go ahead, with bank aid if necessary, well know- Ing why PWA prefers to retain its debtor position as long as possible: that it Its only control over the quality of work done. POSSBIILITV OF THIRD TERM WASHINGTON: All Inst week Third Termites bored busily In the solid wooden pillars of U. S. politics. Observed Senator Barklev of Kentucky: "I keynoted Roosevelt into the White House in 1932 and 1936, and I might possibly do It again in 1940." Said Senator Pittman of Nevada: "I have inherent prejudices against a third term, but third term. Said Senator Pepper of Florida: "The third term question is being used r.s a red herring by some of the New Deal opponents." Recovering with a bounce from his primary defeat. Representative Maury Maverick of Texas wrote a piece for the Philadelphia "Record." Excerpt: "Calling all progressives! Calling all liberals! Stop your telegrams telling me how sad it was between Ickes and a I'll take a third term. 1 that I got beat The job we which the President's mother supported. The real name of the Roosevelt estate says Mr. Spencer grim ly, is "Crooks' Delight", after a British merchant who once owned It. The Krum Elbow Heaven will accommodate some 3,000 angels (followers of Father Divine) In Its 27 buildings, will be marked by a sign with letters 40 feet high for the edification of excursion boat passengers. Chattered Howland Spencer: "I like Divine's ideas. He is a great constitutionalist ... I thought of the steamboats that will bring thousands of colored people from New York to swim In the Hudson here and have picnics on the hllh, and It sort of amused me. .. Whether we meant it or not, this really will annoy Franklin a great deal, won't It?" Said Columnist Eleanor Roosevelt: "It must be pleasant to feel have ahead of us now is not to let any more get beat, lesson to you." Let me be a I ON R. F. D.— -MAIL LADIES ANACONDA, Montana: Since 1918, Anna McDonald, 45, of Anaconda, has trudged 65.000 miles carrying 283 tons of mail. When she was transferred last week to a clerical job, Anaconda hailed the retirement of "the last womsn city mail carrier in the United States. But Anaconda was wronir. Though its records on th'j subject are vague, the Post Office department did know that Anaconda's Anna was not the last of her species. Dur'ng the War many a strong girl got a man's job toting letters from door to door. At least on^s who still functions is resolute Katie E. Philpot, 44, of Williamston, N. C., who marches dutifully through the north end of town every mprriing and afternoon, her slim back bent under a weight of farm papers, tracts and mail-order literature^ her slim legs encased in black cotton hose below neat knickers of Post Office grey. FATHER DIVINE'S BLACK ELBOW NEW YORK: Through the streets of Manhattan's Harlem last week trundled a procession led by a sleek touring car on whose back perched fattish, blinking, middle- aged Negro Major J. ("Father") Divine. Behind him rode a squadron of his women cultists straddling big brewery horses, humbler worshipers in cars, trucks and afoot. "Peace is Wonderful!" shouted bright placards. "Peace. 1 Peace!" Occasion for this celebration was a real estate deal—Father Divine had bought a new Heaven in an exclusive neighborhood, the 500- acre "Krum Elbow" estate 1.800 feet directly across the Hudson River from Franklin Delano Roosevelt The seller: eccentric, Roosevelt- hating Socialite Howland Spencer, 48. Squire Spencer's quarrel with his neighbor dates from the 1932 campaign when Squire Roosevelt began publicly calling his mother's house "Krum Elbow." After election the U. S. Goedetic Survey hastily named it so on official maps. Mr. Spencer insisted that his family place had aways borne that name, a claim that In the future this place will be "heaven" to some people, even if it cannot be to Its former owner." Said Father Divine: "We believe in improving all things and advancing all things." JAPAN-RUSSIA "TERRIBLE FIGHT" TOKYO, Japan: Although Japan has consistently tried to minimize recent Japanese-Russian clashes on the border of Siberia, an engagement amounting to full dress warfare occurred last week at dismitccl Changkufeng Hill. A detailed Japanese official communique described « "terrible flght" in which Japanese forces beat Soviet troops who "used mechanized units, including tanks and heavy artillery." To keep on calling such operations "frontier clash*s r> was fantastic. But neither Russia nor Japan wants open war. Chinese, whose air force today eonsists largely of Soviet- built plnnes, credited Russin with creating a diversion which last week led the worried Japanese to cense bombing Canton for four dnys. While Soviet citizens were quietly informed by the Tass offirin! news agency that the "defeated" Japanese forces had nevertheless "occu- pi»d Soviet territory to a depth of six miles." Japanese official press wires reported that 50 Soviet bombing planes had appeared over Korea and had bombed several villages and railways, that five planes were shot down before they could get back to Russia. Japanese cities in the west, which would be the first victims of a Soviet bombing raid from Vladivostok agtinst the Island Empin enforced '•jll air-raid jirerputions. Cables from Tokyo saiJ the Home Fleet was being deployed, was "read/ for eny eventuality." AN OLD BRITISH HERITAGE DISCARDED LONDON: To graduate, .1 full fledged officer and gentleman from Sandhurst or Woolwich, the academies in which most British Annv commanders have been trained, a young man has needed $1.500 for nonth i retary Leslie Hore-Belishu last week announced that Sandhurst and Woolwich scholarships would ht available to every candidate able to pass the tests, that special grants of approximately $100 a year would be made to impoverished subalterns, that the promotions of young officers and the retirement of elderly officers would be speeded. Mr Hore-Belisha crowed: "These new measures insure that an army career throughout its various stage* will now be possible for an officer without private means!" Most startling of all, the War Secretary on one day promoted 2.000 army officers. His plan will cost the British taxpayer $1.800,000 additional the first year in increased officers' pay, later $3,000,000 annually. Under the new regulations "all reasonably competent officer*" can expect to serve at least ten years with the rank and pay of major, after which the less competent majors will be retired at the early age of 47 to live for the rest of their lives on a pension of about $2,000 yearly. MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS IN SINGAPORE SINGAPORE, Straits Settlements: Just buck of Britain's monster naval base at Singapore lies the pleasant realm of the wealthy Sultan of Johore, an Oriental potentate entitled to have at least one attractive British woman staying at his palace on approval. When he recently returned to Johore from a holiday in Sumatra, His Highness had with him and seemed intent on marrying pert Lydia Cecily Hill, an ex-cabaret performer. But the sahibs of the British col ony in Singapore considered u cabaret-girl-Sultana quite impossible. Social royalists, they gangtd up and put moral pressure on the precedent-breaking Sultan by unanimously refusing his invitations, although Miss Hill was properly chaperon- ed at the palace by her mother. Th Sultan had his revenge by orderin the sahibs off his golf course, thci children away from his bnndstam It is risky for an Asiatic to frus trate sahibs. The Sultan of Johor soon discovered reports were reach ing London that he was making an issue of marrying Miss Hill, hac engaged in a "serious quarrel" with the governor of Straits Settlements Afraid the British Governmen might back down, His Highness suddenly made amends by packing Miss Hill nnd her mother off to England. Last \veek In London, ns nether and dnughte- landed, the S-.iHnn's legal adviser hastily ca In British journalists, hinded them n cable just received from the Sultnn: I havp never sugested marrying Miss Hill (Stop) Any suggestion of political implications is a lie(Stop) Any sugegstion of my not faithfully carrying out all agrements with the British Government is also B lie (Stop). Having sent this cable, His Highness prepared to leave Johore to spend another holiday in Sumatra where it Is not hard to find attractive mother and daughter set-ups. DAMAGE SUITS AND X-RAYED CANDY NEW YORK: A chewy, chocolate- covered concoction of peanuts nnd fudge—Oh Henry!—is one of the three best-selling 5c candy bars In the U.S. (Others: Milky Way. Baby Ruth). Lake most confectioners, Oh Henry's maker—i siibsidfnrv of $1,250,000,000 General Candy Corp. —is pestered with damage suits. In 1936, 100 people claime 1 they had broken teeth, bruised gunv. or damaged their digestion on stones, twigs, wires and nails that slipped by Oh Henry inspectors. Last year, General's President George Williamson, folowing the example of W. FV Schrafft & Sons Co., Installed two $3,000 Adrian fluoroscopes (X-ray machines), routed as many as 40000 boxes of Oh Henry bars through them a day. With claims cut In half, Confectioner Williamson last week had two more machines installed. A BRIGHT SKY -' :" FOR BUSINESS NEW YORK: Like a well-spread buffet lunch, there was food for every thought In last week's business figures. The stock market slipped badly one day, steadied the next, ended about on the same level (140.24 on the Dow-Jones Industrial averages it had maintained for two weeks.) Some thought this was a lull before a reaction, others declared it a pause while business caught up. Meanwhile, steel production rose again, reaching 39.6% of capacity; lumber production and wholesale food prices were also up but wheat prices broke to new lows for the year. General Motors made $24,186.002 In the second quarter of 1938 compared to only $8,234.017 In the first quarter. All told, the net for the second quarter nverngcd an estimated drop of 70^ in corporate profits from a year ago. For the nation as a whole, the Department of Commerce reported last week, Income was off from the first half of 1937, to $30, 650,000.000. Should income in the next six months keep this pace, the 1938 total of $61,000,000,000 will be only $8,000,000,000 less than 1937—a smaller drop than anticipated.
