AROUND THE CLOCK WITH THE NEWS "Purge" In a nasty word, and a* might be expected, the anti-Roosevelt boys are making the best of it. We've been taught to think of "purge" In terms of Hitler and Stalin, and the connection with our own American situation probably will find fertile fruit in some of the weaker minds— which is what the dealers in the word "purge" are hoping. There Is quite a difference between a "purge" which takes men out of their homes and puts them into concentration camps or assembles them for machine gun target practice, and a "purge" In which the President of the United States gives his views and reasons for favoring one candidate for office over another candidate. In the latter case the only life at stake Is the political life of a candidate, and the public can agree or disagree with the president without fear of death or destruction. » * • County politics will soon be In full swing. As we have said before, the theory of having county candidates run on party tickets seems to us to be not only wrong, but far behind the times from the standpoint of good government. But our own small voice can do little to change the situation. County officers have no political policies to carry out; the public wants only efficient men or women in the offices. But party partisanship, of course, determines many votes, regardless of qualifications for the job. Running Kossuth county Is the largest single business in the county, and the folks elected correspond to a board of directors in a million dollar corporation. When you vote in the fall, ask yourself if you would want the people you are voting for to. be the directors of such a corporation, In which you had money Invested. * * * Two billion dollars a year go to swindlers in the United States. The policy racket expose is the latest one to hit the headlines. We don't have the policy racket, but we have others just as bad, even in Kossuth county. When somebody tries to sell you something through flattery, an appeal to a larcenous Instinct, through continuous high pressure, over the telephone, or in great haste, beware! * * • The blggeat piece of dam-fool news In a long time is the announcement that the Little Entente of the Balkan states In Europe is tearing up a World War treaty which prevented Hungary from re-arming. The purpose is to preserve peace by letting Hungary rearm. What a lot of hum-bug. Of course, Hungary would rearm anyway, If It wanted to, and the announcement was only a gesture. Never, in the history of the world, has rearming brought peace to anybody. We may lag behind other nations in the matter of "art appreciation", and some of the so-called "finer things in life", but we certainly are far ahead of them In the realization that minding our own business, and solving our own problems through attempts at sane reasoning will do more than all of the bombs and cannons in existence. * * • Interenttng, Indeed, Is the fact that legal prevention of the blowing of automobile horns has actually resulted in a decrease in accidents. Such ban actually been the case where the measure has been tried. It's a trifle hard to understand, but the theory is that many folks substitute a horn for safer driving, or more brains while at the wheel. * * * It gets sickening, at time*, to hear peMlmUtlc talk. Public psychology has much to do with the way we all feel. If we'd adopt a few planks from that philosophy of "Every day in every way, I'm getting better and better" perhaps we'd actually think so, and find ourselves doing that very thing in an economic way. Those who look at the world with a bright viewpoint, and a will to make thin;;-; better no matter how they might actually be, deserve some kind of a medal. * * * The time is ripe: " For those who criticize WPA labor to explain how the men on WPA can be absorbed by regular industry. For those who belabor the president to outline an intelligent method of administration that will improve on his. For those who criticize the buying of government bonds with Social Security funds, to explain what they would do with the same funds so that Ihey might draw adequate interest. «ach out of Henry Ford's estate because we had $600,000,000 to work with. Then comes the Mellon's $95,000,000 and we come into 75 cents. The Hearst family would contribute $1.50 and we begin about this time to add the totals coming out with $9.90. You see, when you have to divide up with 130,000,000 folks, It doesn't mean quite so much. We might just as well go out and take down that For Sale sign and be happy, have have what we have—and earned it. A fellow can't do much retiring on $9.90. • * • , Kraschel Finally Saw Hie Light Webster City Journal: After talking to a number of people, the Freeman-Journal Is convinced that the course of Governor Kraschel In handling the Maytag strike problem will lose him many more votes than It gains, and when the head of the ticket suffers the loss of support at the polls all the candidates suffer in more or less degree. Hence It may be believed that democratic candidates for state offices and for congress, both houses, regret that the governor has taken such a position. But republicans are certainly elated, as they have reason. Republican politicians in Iowa, leaders and near leaders, have been very hopeful of carrying the state for some time and developments of the past few weeks have made them more sanguine than ever of success at the polls next November. * * * Old Stuff! Old Shift! Eagle Grove Eagle: President Roosevelt complains bitterly of republican voting in democratic primaries. He says republican participation in the democratic primary in -Jdnho, defeated Senator Pope. Why, Mr. President, democratic voting in Iowa primaries nominated Albert B. Cummins In Iowa 30 years BKO. With ghoulish glee, the democrats invaded the Iowa primaries and nominated Smith Wildman Brookhart. Certainly we republicans com- plnined bitterly to no purpose. The democrats got n derided kick out of our mortification. But after nil. It Is the voice of the people, and when election time comes around, the voters get straightened out and vote for the candidnte of their choice. But here in Iowa we know all the pains and heartaches of democratic voting in republican primaries, and we just cannot be sympathetic if the same procedure is followed by republicans In other states. Of course, when the democrats were doing It and nominating Brookhart for us republicans, that was a virtue. But when republicans use the same signals and the same play to defeat a favorite stamper like Senator Pope, then it becomes a sin. • • • The Same Old Story LeMars Sentinel: In Its refusal to take wage cuts when business conditions are bad organized labor has taken a position it cannot hope to maintain. Capital must take Its losses when conditions are unsatisfactory and the farmer has his succession of high and low prices. There is no sound basis for the contention that wages should not be readjusted to meet conditions. * # * Wallace for Big Debt ' Cherokee Times: Secretary Wallace in his key- not speech rather gloried the growing federal debt, already near the $ mark, and declared that within a sound capitilsm debt ought to continually increase. Evidently that is the same theory on which Mr. Wallace conducted his own business when operating a farm journal publication at Des Moines.

Roosevelt." turning point in U. S. foreign policy. Europe's jitters Had communicated themselves to Washington so forcefully that President Roosevlel and Secretary of State Hull Isauec another warning to Herr Hitler. In a radio speech, short-waved to Europe, Secretary Hull elaborated his thesis of International "order under law," said: "In a smaller and smaller world it will soon no longer be possible for some nations to choose and follow the way of force and for other nations at the same time to chose and follow the way of reason All will have to go in one direction and by one way." At Queen's University in King ston, (Ont.>, Canada, where he wen! to receive an honorary degree before dedicating a new, international bridge across the St. Lawrence River, Franklin Roosevelt declared: "We can assure ourselves that this hemisphere at least shall remain a strong citadel wherein clvilzatlon an flourish unimpaired. The Dominion of Canada Is part of the sisterhood of the British Empire. I give to you assurance that the people of the United States will not stand Idly by if domination of Canadian soil Is threatened by any other empire'." Although It expressed only an obvious truism about a remote contingency, the president' statement did cause chatter abroad. Britain and France loudly aplauded the acknowledgment of a "W.ashlngton-Lon- don-Paris" axis. German officially laughted It off as electioneering talk by Mr. Roosevelt. Italy sneered at the Idea of a Canadian Invasion "by whom" Polar Bears? In their anonymous references t 'disintegration of the structure of world order," "international lawlessness," "wanton brutality." "undemocratic regimentation." "misery inflicted on helpless peoples," President Roosevelt and Secretry Hull clearly and purposefully ranged Germany. Italy and Japan—where these inhumanities are practiced— as nations to whose policies the U. S. is opposed. U. S. foregin policy s at present expressed in a rigid Neutrality Act which suggests thnt he U. S. is neutral in any and all vars (except those of American rp- mblics when attacked from abroad) and that the U. S. will sell sub- munitions of war to all comers on a cash and carry basis at its home >orts. If President Roosevelt and fir. Hull now create a popular mandate to align the U. S. against autarchies, revision of the Neutrality Act must be their next move. An unusually large and brilliant meteor, seen flashing through the sky last week by Algonians. caused speculation on the origin and finish of the nocturnal visitor from the outer space. One startled spectator at the diamond ball games 2xplaimed, "Oh. look at the comet!" Had it actually been one as close as the meteor that night the earth would not likely be spinning along In its orbit today. For a meteor is simply a fragment, chiefly iron, which becomes visible when it accidentally strays from outer space Into the earth's atmosphere. Its great speed causes friction from contact with the air to burn it up, giving off the light which makes it look like a falling star. Actually, meteors wander into the earth's path continually, but the protective belt of air burns them up before most reach the the ground. Meteors fall in the day time, too, but are not usually seen because their brightness is lost in the light of the sun. Occasionally an 'extra larg? one s'riVes the .•lUrface of the earth and one such falling in Russia knocked down whole forests. These ere very exceptional, however, most of them being mere fragments from some unknown source, but which if it were not for the protective zone of air around the globe would bombard the surface of the earth and make life even a great deal more precarious than it is in this day of hit and run drivers. • * • PiCK-UPS: (but not the kind you're thinking of)— Joe Greenberg is (or was) up In Minnesota, vacationing with his family, last week . . .

"DER TAG" POSTPONED NEW YORK: Many a foreign new dispatch to the U. 5. is about one-tenth fact and nine-tenths ru- more and conjecture.. Working in a murkey subterranean world of censorship, rumor-mongering and diplomtlc duplicity, an honest reporter must search every shovelful of rumor for the nugget of fact, assay ecah fact for the elusive motlvp that gives It value. On the basis of a single such feat, not necessarily important in itself, an Impressive and vaguely portentious flow of dispatches can be written from the capitals of Europe, recounting rumored reactions and reactions to reactions. Most fearsome of all rumor» is the rumor of war. Living in an atmosphere heavy with war talk, thi foreign correspondent is usually immune to war 'hysteria. Yet more than once the foreign correspond- j •nts have marched the people of Europe to the brink of war and then marched them back again. • This time, war was to begin on August 15. The rumor was based on a fact: for that day, Hitler had ordered the beginning of the most extensive war games since the orld War. This fact, combined with Hitler's known aims in Czechoslovakia, bred mutterings in the capitals of Europe which corre-- spondents duly reported, U. FJ ->apers trotted out a familiar headline: "Europe Tense." But The Day came and went, and . S. headlines were again reassur- \gn. Next day. in an editorial entitled "Der Tag." the New York Times suggested that publicity was good for war scares: "Never before have governments and peoples been so alert to danger as they are today. That explains the constant alarm signals. Perhaps it also explains why 'the day' Is always postponed." From Paris, Writer Walter Llpp- mann set the next deadline: Sep- 15th. INNOCENT ABROAD GETS BOUNCED , LONDON! Hugo Loeser, 57 -year old Chicago liquor importer went sightseeing in London's City (financial district) last week, came upon what he took to be a busy broker's office, stepped In to have a look at stock quotations. The hubbub of voices teadily increased, so did shouts of "1401". Puzzled and amused by this chant. Mr. Loeser suddenly noticed that he was surrounded. Someone jostled him. His hat was knocked off. Next thing he knew he was In the street, straightening hsi rumpled clothes, looking up into the red face of a bobby. Mr. Loeser had walked into the London Stock E|-hange, which brooks no intrusion. The Exchange was once limited to 1400 members. Now, whenever a stranger Is seen on the floor, members shout "1401", throw him out. Mr. Loeser was lucky not to have been "debagged" (pants taken off.) Afterwards, he said somewhat sourly: "The experience was funny." SPOBTS THIS WEEK TENNIS, BASEBALL, GOLF GERMANTOWN, Pa.-. When 20- Lost Line — Aw, Itt Unit other guy move over!

But because successful bidders for the new routes were to get their tfan- chises confirmed for "as long as public convenience and necessity" demanded, and might therefore bo n line for fatter subsidies in the 'uture, bids last week reached new ows. Braniff Airways ciphered out the nflnitesimal figure of $.00001907373 )er mile, put that In as their bid. Sastern Airways, coveting some of neighbor Brnaiff's exclusive shut- le trade, offered the decisively low bid of $0.00. The Post Office department snlf- 'ed these bargain figures cautlous- y. Allowing that Eastern's zero bid might be quite legal, it hem med and hawed, then announced hat it would leave the decision up to incoming CAA. But last week lust before CAA came in, the Post Office decided that $.00001907373 saved is $.00001907378 earned, awarded the Brownsville-Houston-San Antonio link to zero-bidding Eastern. SURPLUS PROBLEMS IN WHEAT, COTTON WASHINGTON: On July 31, car ry-over of U. S. cotton was 11,636, 000 bales, an almost three-fold in crease over a year ago. Since U. S. | >' car old Robert Riggs of Los Ang- cotton consumption and exports last i eles makes his Davis Cup debut this >ear totaled 11,432.000 bales, only I week in Germantown, international ;^6,000 more than the estimated 1MB-39 crop, prospects for a sizable reduction of this tremendous ca/ry-over are dim indeed. When cotton prices tumbled last week, making loans mandatory under lh<? Agricultural Adjustment Act of IMS .Secretary of Agriculture Wallace I/jinted to cotton as "perhaps the most difficult single situation with which we are faced." But scarcely less acute was the wheat problem, for which Secretary Wallace is seeking a partial solution in a subsidy scheme under which he hopes to export 100,000,000 bushels, about one-fourth the present U. S. surplus. To dump only 26.000.000 bu. abroad in 1934, the U. S. spent $6500.000. However ingeniously conceived, a similar program now would not only add a neat expense item to AAA's bulging budget but would almost certainly bring a squawk from Secretary of State Hull, champion of reciprocal trade treaties. In addition, subsidized U. S. wheat would have to compete in the world market against wheat sub. sidized this year by Canada, Poland and Rumania- with other overproduce™ expected to follow suit. Whether or not this year's surplus problems can be solved, the AAA last week fixed 1939 benefit payments at :-.6 to 30c a bu.-14-lHc above the 1938 rate—for U. S. wheat farmers who reduce their acreage 31 per cent. Otherwise, next year's crop-control prgoram is substantially the same as this year's. Total amount earmarked for 1939 benefit payments: $712.000,000. "GET BUSY", .MB.

Ten of thetn missed their mark. Two of them dropped Into the mitts of his Teammates Henry Helf and Frank Pytlak. Catchers Helf and Pytlak wiped their brow and stuck out their chests. They had broken the altitude catching record set 30 years ago when Gabby Street caught a ball thrown from the top of the 550- foot Washington Monument. Mathematicians estimated the balls' speed at 138 miles an hour. The balls that missed the mitts bounced six stories into the air. * * * DULUTH. Minn.: Clinton Russell, otally blind Duluth businessman, last week won an 18-hole golf match against W. H. J. Oxenham, totally blind London osteopath.

Both golfers took up the game after losing their sight, usually plays In the 80s, have their caddies place the club head In the proper direction, describe the He and distance.

AMICABLE ABE WORKS FOR PEACE CLEVELAND, Ohio: In 1936 a Russian-born Cleveland oilman and war veteran put In a long distance call for Japanese Ambassador Saito In Washington, got him on the line, pleaded with him to keep the peace, was assured there would be no Japanese-Russian war.
