THIS THIRD TERM TALK Thus far, whatever has be«n ssid about a third term candidacy of Frankiin D. Roosevelt tv president has come primarily from opposing political newspapers or politicians From the president himself, or really close fnend? who might be in a position to know, there has be«n no word regarding a third term or e,-en a suggestion that the president is thinking of such a thing. Frankly, why should the president desire a third term? As the dominant bead of the democratic party, he can almost name his successor, and that man surely would be one whose ideas and beliefs were along the liberal trend of thought held by Mr. Roore- velt. Without seeking reelection, he can have an influential part in guiding the direction of the next administration, assuming that it is democratic. There is good reaso nfor not desiring a president more than two terms, or eight years in office. An elective office such as the presidency is one that cannot be in the possession of one man for too long a period, and still retain a democratic form of government. On the other hand, however, eight years Is not necesarity a long enough period in which to adjust the internal affairs of a nation. If, as we believe. the adjustment in a majority of ways is for the public good, the administrations of the future will find it incumbent upon them to continue to carry out the precepts of such improvements. In county offices, even with a change from republican to democrat or democrat to republican, the working of the office is changed very little, even though the political affiliation of the Incumbent may be. If a republican administration were to be elected at the next presidential election, we venture the guess that the major reforms of the Roosevelt administration would be continued. And Roosevelt's power and prestige is fcuch that there is no question but what the fundamental social and economic improvements which he believes in, and for which he has constantly fought, will be carried on If the democratic party should be retained in power. During the past few years we have all listened to, and read hysterical mouthlngs about the dangers to this, and the dangers to that It has all been pure bunk. We still have a demcoratlc form of government, and we shall continue to have one, unless our reactionary friends get back into the saddle and return the government to the hands of dominant Interests which have held It in the past. If THAT happens, then there may well be worry about the safety of democracy. THE CONTEST ENDS We watch with good-natured envy the preparations of Marcela Thill for her trip to the west coast, as Algona's March of Progress queen. But while Marcella is getting ready for her trip, which leaves Chicago, Sept. 18, a few words regarding the good sportsmanship of the other girls would not be out of place. Ten prize awards were given, with some 70 girls active until the very close of the race. To the 60 that did not win awards, we can but say that the fine sportsmanship they have displayed is to be heartily commended. And from the_ standpoint of a contest, it is pretty generally agreed that no other contest of any kind has ever created the intense interest in Kosguth county comparable with that of the March of Progress event. Opinions of Other Editors political party. And even though Mr. AUen rates highly with that party's organisation tn Iowa, he speaks right out against the waste and extravagance In the government's proposed plan. The next legislature may be driven to change the lovrn laws or lose federal grants for old age purposes. But until Mr. Allen Is compelled to make this change, Old Age pensioners will get their checks In the mall as heretofore. Han • lUal Statesman Swea City Herald: This paper Is willing to wager that after everything is added, subtracted, multiplied and divided, Secretary Cordell Hull will be revealed as the one who has done the most for the farmer, instead of the new dealers and their doles, and Dr. Wallace and his grotesque theories and practices. In any review of the farm question this fart stubbornly interposes: We constantly must seek *nd obtain foreign markets for our farm surpluses if such surpluses are to be disposed of successfully. The distinguished secretary of stnte. who has devoted his life to the study of foreign relations, U, without fanfare, working for the developments of foreign markets, and as time goes on the fruits of his labors are becoming strikingly apparent. • • • Revolt Agatnvt AAA Hiimboldt Republican: The daily papers of Friday of last wpek carried dispatches relative to the objections of many farmers of Iowa to the restrictions of the AAA in its 1?SS program. These rumblings have been reaching the Hsimboldt newspaper offices for some time, but as there are always objectors. they were given no attention. The Washington dispatch declared that Governor Kraschel has added his voice to the throng and declared that there is wide-spread complaint from fanners of the corn bel: over the restrictions of the AAA. The dispatch says that in some cases the complaints ran as high as 1.000 to the county. Governor Kraschel pictured the Iowa farmers as ready to revolt against the program. "While I was in IVs Moines last week editors from various counties in the state talked of the revolt in their counties, TheMAILCIiOFTIME MB. tt. •> MA . 0Vr. . by the MtteTl»f tttti OUMKSEMiNAR FOR PKACR 0**t CHICAGO: The lent arm of tmall- town law received a hypo hut week In the form of a unique summer- school course—the Crime Seminar of Northwestern Univerlty's Law School in Chicago. The Crime Seminar wed formed for the benefit of rural prosceutlng attorneys who know nothing about crime detection beyond what fiction and films have taught them, who arc nevertheless often obliged, in a pinch, to turn detective. Thirty-five ambitious, youngish men from 23 states last week bucked down to an intensive program of lectures, demonstrations, discussions. Their teachers wtre from Northwestern's Law Schoof. from the famed Crime Detection Laboratory recenty sold to Chicago by Northwestern for $23.000 learned The student things every snoopers detective A RAdtea] View Editor Fre*rr.*n-J«>urnal: It's Just too bad that our f^ir state ravsst or does tctorate a bunch of CIO's or anyone tawing that vnv We could be prosperous if these fe.Uows <r*r« disposed of.

De*l Sittiima Humboldt Independent: In his speech before the lews Republican convention former Senator Dickinson said: "Opposition to waste is not opposition to relief." The republicans should ke«p the fact that they are not opposed to the objectives of the Roosevelt administration, constantly before the public. As this paper has mentioned many times, its editor is in favor of practically every objective of the administration. What it objects to is the crazy methods proposed to reach the objectives. Consider "spending yourself into prosperity." Building a shelter belt of trees to stop the dust storms: killing pigs and destroying their carcasses while people are starving: paying farmers to leave land uncultivated while spending billions to bring more acres under cultivation: levying taxes to create A fund to promote industries to compete with those who paid the taxes: encouraging workers to continue strikes while blaming owners for not keeping the plants open; levying taxes on articles of everyday use in an effort to lessen the cost of living, and various other crazy schemes. ought to know, things many a housewife would like to know: How to get confessions without using a rubber hose (a secret): how to embarras fake experts on hand- I writing, psychology, etc (by cross- examining 1 : how to tell where a j man has been by the particles on his shoes: how to make a moul- age (reprdouction of perishable ev iderce. Such as outdoor footprints, with plaster casts, etc.): how to use a lie detector: how to restore irk or pencil marks which have been erased. Two years ago M. Edwin O'Neill of the Crime Laboratory discovered how to restore ordinary ink erasures, published his findings. Just before the Crime Seminar he had found the chemical talisman for red and green inks. RICHARD ASD WPA IX MUDDLED MESS SMITHFIELD. Pa.: Richard Malone of Smithfield received a letter last month identifying him as WPA Worker Xo. 44426-38632 and assigning him to work on a local road project. His parents, on relief, did nothing about it: obviously it was a clerical error. When Richard received another letter, firing him from the job for failure to report, his brother Albert, 20. went to WPA headquarters, explained that Richard, aged 7. was in the second grade. WPA headquarters then cut the Malone family off relief. At t length Brother Albert got himself I certified as the "priority worker" German cltitens got scores of reminders that, as during the last war, their needs are still wholly subordinate to the armyV- In Munich and In most German cities near the eastern border, people waited 1 on street corners for the motor buses which usually takes them to work, then were told they had better walk, since the army had commandeered the buses. Even mall trucks of the German Post Office stopped delivering letters, began delivering soldiers, reservists and supplies. As men called to the colors left their Jobs all over Germany, none knowing how soon he could return, German women were sent to fill many of the vacancies. The number of worker* conscripted throughout Germany for tush work digging trenches, stringing barbed wire and erecting cement pillboxes rose to 300.000. Road contractors in southern Germany were also busy on rush orders to improve the surfacing of roads leading to the Czechoslovak frontier "to withstand more heavy traffic."" Many physicians In Munich received orders to leave their private practices and report for "PO days' service" with the army medical corps, each doctor to bring with him food for two days and two changes of linen. The army bought foodstuffs at such a rate that private German grocers reported they could not get many staples. Meanwhile, German householders in the eastern frontier regions were advised that troops would be billeted In their homes. Farmers throughout Germany were ordered to rush their harvesting, complete It by the first of this week If possible, and be ready to have their horses requisitioned by the army. Since there had been no army mobilization on this scale in Germany since 1914. the reactions of the German people last week were marked nervousness and alarm. It was plain that Adolf Hitler wanted all Europe to hear about and be lightened by his mobilization. Europe stood by watchfully but refused to be seriously alarmed. Military experts reported that the German Army probably needed exercise because its march into Austria last spring revealed several technical weaknesses in its service of supply, etc.. and its reservists— following post-War disarmament- are just now beginning to reach significant numbers and flfeed train- of the family and was awarded the | in & Last week Europe was in R job originallv assigned to Richard | mood to let Adolf Hitler exercise his boys and put on a show.

As a matter of fa<,-t these new employees would be welfare workers !i.r a . ertain FWA has taken its share of railing. Yet. there is one thing to be said in Its favor. The projects which it allots money for are permanent public improvements, and most of them are needc.l. The individual communities, through their own elective officers, choose projects that they know the community needs most, and then match thi: cost from local funds with the government funds. One cannot take away a water works or a bridge, or a city hall or a school. And while we are well aware tnat the coit of same will come from government revenue, part through direct taxation, and.part through indirect, the thing for which the money was spent is an improvement, no matter where it is located. Ten years from now, when the pressure for a sewage disposal plant, or a civic building in Algona, gets so strong that we decide to build one or the other or both, we may regret that we passed up a good opportunity to have the federal fund share the cost. To say nothing about the old court house. • * • Well, with the celebration out of the way, we wonder how the boys came out with their athletic show. In fact that would probably make a good last line.
