HORSES It was Interesting to note a letter from a subscriber of a contemporary paper in which he voiced the view that farmers would be better off if they spent more money on horses and less on tractors. He asks, "Can farmers afford tractors." The use of modern tractors and equipment has not only made farm work far easier, but has been instrumental in lowering production costs as well. If some farmers have over-expanded In their purchase of such equipment, it Is too bad. But to assume that we should return to the days when horses did all the work, Is on a par with asking why we do not go back to Model T automobiles, because they burn less gasoline. Tractors today are being Improved, just as auto- i mobiles are improved from year to year. They are \ being built to do more work with less upkeep ex- ipense. Tractors do not contract sleeping sickness, I unless they run out of fuel. They have a trade-in [value If replacements are needed. Horses, themselves, cost money. They have an [[upkeep cost. Being alive they are subject to the ills lof any living thing. Horses have a definite place In Ithe scheme of things on a farm, but we wonder what ithe effect would be on farming In general if a de- |cree was to bnr all tractors from the field, and de- nand that they bo replaced with horses. Our real problem In farming is not to replace [farm machinery with horses. Our problem Is to obtain a fair return to the [farmer for the products he sells. If that can be clone, the tractor question will never enter the pic- lure, but machinery will be taken for granted as a necessity of farm life, as it should be. When the farm population can cooperate to nalntaln its prices in the manner that steel and Other products are maintained, the purchase of qulpment when needed will be easy, natural and as Commonplace as eating, and sleeping. EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS ABOUT , THAT AND THE OTHER Rlngated and Fenton papers have been engag- ng In a lively editorial argument as to who can claim be new government airplane landing field, who got and other such details. Now boys, In the first it Is an emergency field, isn't it, and maybe a me a year won't stop there, so don't get your edl- orlal dander too highly Irritated. • • • European crisis after crisis Is raising Cain with ;'|>lans for the football season. You just about make lip your mind to see such and such a game, and then lalong comes Hitler and asks 60 square miles from 'there and there, and a crisis Is on, and you stay homo. |But it blows over, and you are about ready to send ,f your check for two ducats back of the goal posts, i and the Slims tell the Shorts to stop flying their I planes over the frontier, and they rush battalions to the front, and war is ready to pop, and the price of hogs drops, and you decide not to go, and then by Sunday everybody Is calling each other nice names again. Speaking of football, why couldn't those European nations just pick 11 men from each country put them In a neutral bowl, and let them fight to a finlsk and call the rest of it off. Napoleon marched all over Europe and part of Africa, and still France doesn't have any more territory now than she had before Napoleon went berserk. Hitler's destiny is just history repeating itself; Hitler can add territory for a while, but the chtnces are that 25 or SO years from now the boundaries will have settled back pretty much to where they were before. • • • Well, the World Series between the New Dealers with President Roosevelt on the mound, and the Anti-New Dealers with the Republican presti play- Ing the outfield, and the Republican cartoonists the infield, is concluded. KDR struck out O'Connor in the last inning, but still came out on the short end of the final score. And now we will coast until 1940— maybe. » • • *• If we were asked to define what a term of district court is, we should say just o"ne big compromise after another. • * » Speaking of courts, in the case of the Dewey prosecution of Hines in New York, there seemed to be little doubt but that "Jimmy" was mixed up in the rackets, here and there. Yet, one slip in the wording of the prosecutor wan sufficient to throw the Whole case out of court. It didn't seem to make much difference whether or not evidence pointed toward Hines' guilt, a mistrial was the result. When things like that happen, the general public cannot help but wonder if maybe there isn't a great deal of room for Improvement In our entire system of handling court cases. • • • Wonder If the Spaniards are still fighting each other; and how do you suppose the Japanese are doing around Hankow? his demands, we believe. With each succeeding conquest he Is that much stronger and that much harder to defeat In war . . . and M long as he controls Germany he wilt continue this aggression and war is the only way out, as we see It. When nations prepare for war as have Germany, Czechoslovakia, Great Britain, France, Italy, Russia and Japan, the natural ending I* war. And when It comes will the United States be able to stay out of It? Hitler's bluff will have to be called some time. • • * The Democratic Trough Llvermore Gazette: The young Democrats of Kansas are proud of their organization. Some of them have neat metal signs attached to their front cuto license tags which state, "Join the Young Democrats of Kansas for Good Government." And some local jokester added the word "Jobs" to one of the signs. » » • • • • • Political Poppyrtock Webster City Journal: And now rumor has it that Gov. Kraschel Is going to'withdraw from the democratic ticket as a candidate for governor and that he is going to be given an appointment In Washington. "It is said," three words that are so frequently used as the basis of groundless rumors, that "the democratic board of strategy has been encouraging the governor to withdraw" on the ground that the governor's course In handling the Maytag plant strike has resulted In a boomerang rather than In a boost. The Freeman-Journal doesn't believe there is any truth in these rumors. They are probably circulated for the purpose of embarrassing the governor, and they are pretty sure to do that, as the inference Is that he is a load for the party to carry that the "democratic board of strategy" would like to get rid of. It Is hardly fair political propaganda. The Freeman-Journal Is glad to know that George A. Wilson, the republican candidate for governor, Is in no wise responsible for the creation and circulation of these rumors. • * » "Kiss of Death" Mason City Globe-Gazette: The voters of the United States are emphasizing their opposition to the force tactics that the Committee on Industrial Organization has indicated In many labor troubles In which its members have been involved. The primary elections in both Pennsylvania and Maryland have shown that CIO support is not a valuable political asset. The candidates that John L. Lewis, executive head of the Committee on Industrial Organztatton, fought for in Pennsylvania were not successful In landing nominations. David J. Lewis who opposed Henatir Millard Tydings for the democratic nomination for U. S. senator In the Maryland primary was defeated by an overwhelming vote. Perhaps William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, was not so far out of the way when he eplgrammatlcally declared that CIO support of aspirants for political offices In the United States Is "a kiss of death." • • » Storms' Auditing Plan Senktble Decorah Journal: Recommendation made re• cently by State Auditor Storms which has our heart- Ist f-ndorsement is a plan to have all "slat : checkers" who audit city, county, school and other accounts put on a straight salary and expense basis and remove the decidedly unsatisfactory "fee" basis. State Auditor Storms very sensibly points out that the salaries or fees are paid by taxes In all cases—either by the city, county or some political subdivision. Placing the "checkers" on a straight salary basis to be paid by the state would be much more satisfactory. It is only natural that auditors working on a fee basis desire to stretch the time they work for a city or county out just as long as possible to get salary as many days as possible. These ''checkers" like other people, have a selfish Interest In keeping on the payroll as long as possible. If, on the other hand, they know their duty Is to check the accounts of the city of Decorah, and then move on to the next city or county, they will complete their work more rapidly with the knowledge that they have a job ahead of them. It might be necessary for the state auditor's office to employ a few "supervisors" to "check up on the checkers" to see that they do not waste their time. . ' , The cities and th» towns contribute tax money to the state, either In property, sales. Income or other taxes. Therefore, the salaries of the checkers come from the taxpayers, as Mr. Storms points out, and the city would not be discriminated against by excessive charges for auditing when checkers remain for a long period, which some persons feel Is unnecessary. The "fee" basis Invites piling up of heavy expenses. We are heartily in favor of having the state pay salaries to checkers Instead of assessing cities, counties and taxing districts for their services.

They visited the houie. One aiked the other, "There's a lot of room downstairs." We can shut up all but one room, the other said. Repeated was the same remark about the alze of the upstairs. "We'll shut off all the rooms but one bedroom," tald the other. The couple also decided to tear out the electric wiring; they fear electricity, and will use lamps; they are also going to take out the oil burner in the home. And some builders thought they were making "progress." » * • PICK'DPS: Dave Leffert came to Kossuth county when a youngster, and worked with a surveying crew In north Kossuth; that's the waj quite a few present-day citizens happen to be living in, and have descendants in, this section . . . one young man hereabouts started Field Day activities at 6 p. m.

SPfAKING OF $AF€ty HERE'S THE HILL MADE FAMOUS BY AND HERE'S MR.PUTITOFF-S RESOLUTION _THE ONE Mfc DIDN'T KEEP ANC> HERE'S CAR AT THE BOTTOM OF THE; — AND HERE'S MR.PinTTOFF, -HIMS6L-F "National Safelr (AuncU The MARCH OF TIME (BO. O. S. Mr. OfT. Prepared by the Editor* of TIME The Weekly Newimaiaztne PREPAREDNESS IF AND WHEN WASHINGTON: The Imminent prospect of war in Europe last week aroused considerable apprehension in the administration at Washington. Most departments of the government were busily calculating and planning to buffer the shock—if and when war comes. Under the Neutrality Act and various New Deal laws vesting power in the presndent, there would pr.ob- ably be more one-man government than the U. S. has ever seen when not at war Itself. To guide Franklin Roosevelt, should bombs and shells start flying in Czechoslovakia, all executive branches of the government compiled data and memoranda. President Roosevelt has so far been able to preserve the fiction that a "state of war" does not exist between China and Japan because it has never been "declared," nnd if war between Czechoslovakia and Germany and other powers were not formally declared, he could again- preserve the fiction and all U. S. hands would be free from the Neutrality Act's rigid restrictions. In the event of "declared" war, however, Washington opinion last week rated 50-50 the chance that the president would call a special session of Congress to repeal or amend the Neutrality Act (which expires anyway next May 1). If he should call Congress, he would probably be embarrassed by revival of the move old age pension limit from 65 to 150 years, to abolish all relief projects "so the men can go back to work." His campaign expenditures, he reported, were: 20 cents for rotten tomatoes for boys to throw at n "Vote for Leary" sign, 5 cents for a false mustache to frighten babies. Elected anyhow, Delegate Leary sat down to prepare a statement berating the voters. * * * MILTON, Washington: Fifty-one Milton voters last wek marked thpir ballots for one Boston Curtis, Republican candidate for precinct commltteeman. Boston Curtis was elected. Milton's Mayor Kenneth Simmons, a Democrat, chortled hugely. He. who had sponsored Candidate Curtis and file dhis papers, had proved his point that voters "have no Idea whom they support." Boston Curtis is a large brown mule. —o— EUROPE RE-MAPPED ONCE MORE LONDON: Continuing efforts to prevent another World War, Britain's Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and France's Premier Edouard Daladier sat down In London last week to ease'European tensor by redrawing the map of Central Europe along the lines ordered by Adolf Hitler. Their objective: to give Fuhrer Hitler the predominant ly German Sudeten districts of Czechoslovakia, bordering on Germany, which he demanded. ment for a constitutional amend- f Correspondents have repeatedly mcnt requiring that the nation be I described Fuhrer Hitler as bringing polled before entering a foreign war The state department policy las' week was to "play down" the European crisis, but reports persiater that U. S. cosnuls were advising U. S. tourists to get out of Europe. The London, Paris, Berlin and Prague Ambassadors were busy; but, tied to the state department by modern overseas telephones, they did not have the Independence President Wilson's men had In 1914 in shaping their courses of action. In Washington, Assistant Secretary of State George Messersmith arose dally at 4 a. m. to receive their telephone calls; and at Mr. Hull's elbow was lonaj-experlenced ex-Ambassador- at-Large Norman H. Davis, who knows how Europeans tick. ADMIRAL GOES BASE HUNTING SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico: At La Fortaleza, Governor Blanton Winship's palace In San Juan, Admiral Arthur J. Hepburn last week arrived with a retinue of officers to look over 300-acre Isla Grande in upper Sao Juan Harbor, to see whether it would be useful as a Caribbean naval and air base. Admiral Hepburn's friendly words to press and populace soon convinced them that the base was as good at. built, at an estimated expenditure of some$4,000,000; but the final derision will be up to the U. S. Navy'a General Board, the Secretary of the Navy, and Congress. Having persuaded Congress that more bases are needed in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Pacific, the Navy is inspecting al| available sites (Virgin Island, the Florida and Texas coasts, etr.i, next year will atfk tor authority and money to expand its defense line. SHODDY- TRICKS NEW YORK: Twenty six New York City cloth merchants rubbed their hands joyfuJly last month when the city ordered $67.0U2 worth of woolen goods to be made into winter coats for needy women and children by WPA workers. But city inspectors last wetik rejected half the cloth submitted. Although 2o merchants hud supplied good goods. six others with the bulk of the ord cis had tried to palm off material contiiining moth holes, streaks, bare places, weak spots. Angered. Camp- troller Joseph D. McGuldrk-k gave the six a chance to make good before publishing their name*. Still hopeful, one shyster took back his shoddy. resubmiUed it us a new dt- livury. AMERICAN POLITICAL NOTES CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts: Policeman Thomas Henry Leary of Cambridge, u political clown well above average in humor, last week wound up his "Be Wary of Leary" campaign to avoid election as a delegate to the state democratic convention. Ringing doorbells at dead of night, begging irate voters not to vote for him. he avowed (if elected to campaign for lifting the on the Czechoslovakia crisis primer ily to break up the military alliance of Russia, Czechoslovakia and France; secondly, to get control of the Sudeten mountains which have barred his "Push to the East" toward the oil fields of Rumania and the wheat fields of Russia's Ukraine: and only lastly because of the joy it would give all Germans to feel that their "Sudeten brothers" have been rescued from "Czech oppression." j Exactly what Fuhrer Hitler said to Prime Minister Chamberlain when they talked last week in Berchtesgaden was kept secret, but it was believed to be much the same as he told G. Ward Price of London's "Dally Mall" three days later:— ( "What couldn't I do in Germany and for Germany If it were not for this infernal Czech tyranny over a few million Germans? But It must stop. Stop it shall ... It was the existence of Czechoslovakia as an ally of Soviet Russia, thrust forward Into the very heart of Germany that forced me to create a great German air force. That in turn led to France and Britain increasing I have doubl- fleet once a I- their own air lleets. ed the German air ready because of the situation now prevailing in Czechoslovakia. If we fail to settle the crisis now, Field Marshal Goering would bf asking me to order it doubled again and the British and French would redouble and BO the mad rate would go on. "Do you think I like bein.'; obliged to stop with my great building and development schemes all over the country in order to send 500.000 German workmen to construct at top speed, a huge system of defense works along our western frontier? . . . All this is madness, for no one in Germany dreams of attacking France. We harbor no resentment against France; on the contrary, there is a strong feeling of sympathy in Germany toward her. Nor does any German want war with "Britain either." The terms on which Britain and France agreed in London last week were ueut to the Czechoslovak government with urgent warnings that they must be accepted: 1 Czechoslovakia to cede outright to Germany, without a plebiscite, all Sudeten districts in which the German vote at the last election was bO'J or more. 2. Non-German voters and others in these districts to have the right to be transferred to other pa Ms. of the republic under favorable conditions. 3. Czechoslovakia to hold a pit-bis cite as to whether the republic minus the ceded districts (which in- clu'l'-' the chief txisi'.irg furtilii a lionHi, shall be reorganized nn the Swiss model into .1 federation of cantons, having "states' righis." 4. Czechoslovakia to give U| her present treaties of alliance, retain her armed forces, and have her new und smaller frontiers guaranteed by Britain and France. 5. Britain and France to try to get as many guarantors as possible, not excluding Russia, and prcba'jly including Germany, Itnly Abandoned by her allies, ftccd with a single-handed war against Germany and partitioning of the country among Poland and Hungary as well as Germany, the bewildered SO-year-old republic of Czechoslovakia last week nccedej to the Franco-British demand and gave In to Fuhrer Hitler. MAIt, BY SUBMARINE BARCELONA, Spain: Because Rightist Genera4isslmo Frnnclsco Franco's successful offensive Inst spring split Leftist Spain into tivo parts, mail has since been carried between Valencia nnd Barcelona chiefly by submarine. In the U. S. last week arrived copies of the issue of one, two, six nnd ten peseta "submarine stamps", all Illustrated with submarines, by which th? Leftists have commemorated their physical division. THUMBS t'P FOR HITCH HIKERS DAVENPORT, Iowa: RogUtered Collegiate Thumbers is an organization born of a helpful Idea that oc- urrcd to six-foot 20-year-old Staney Ficse last May. A student at St. Ambrose College In Davenport, Fiese thumbed his way around during the slimmer to enlist boy.s In several colleges, nnd when school opened this fall he had distributed 25 charters covering more than 500 members. For a 60c fee, members receive an authorized R. C. T. emblem as a visiBle roadside high-sign, and a certified Identification card bearing on the reverse a legal waiver releasing any motorist kind enough to offer a lift, from liability In case of accident. Encouraged by the faculty of St. Ambrose. Tbumber Fiese plans to enlist 800 more colleges. Says he: 'We believe ouf fundamental idcn is sound and . . . thnt our organization will benefit society ... I have a girl friend In Beloit ni'd visit there week ends. That Isn't the reason I thought of the plan, but the R. C. T..emblem sure helps get a hitch." LIVING GRAMMAR FOR CHILDREN NEW YORK: Long prosaic <xnd dull. U. S. school readers and grammars have lately become more readable, and many .a school child began the fall term this voar wU : ' a quaint new grammar full of verscj, picture:; and homely illustrations. Its title: 'A Living Grammar." Its authors: Winifred Watson, a St Paul public school teacher, in 1 . Julius M. Nolle of the University o' Minnesota. Illustrated wltft pigs running, boys fishing, trapeze artists swinging, clocks walking ("time marches on" is present tense), "A Living Grammar" contains 99 pages, versified definitions of nouns, pronouns, adjectives, etc. A pronoun, the book explains, Is n "stand-In" for a noun: adjectives are "gossips" that "tell on" nouns and pronouns; a verb Is the engine that makes the sen/.cnce go."~ Sentences have stop and RO signals; a capital letter at the beginning Is a green light; a dash, comma, semicolon or colon Is a yellow light to make. readers hesitate, a period, question mark or exclamation point is a red light. Suggested classroom . game: a punctuation court for trying traffic violators: e. g., "John Jones, you are charged with the serious offense of passing a period." Another game: a row of pupils, each representing a part of speech, stands hp'orc a blackboard holding sheets of white pnper over their heads. As a sentence Is read, each part of speech jumps, like popping 1 corn. A pi:pll who fails to pop nt the fight time foes to stand on the sidelines with an eraser on his head. —O— Sl'EED MATCH OVER SALT FLATS SALT LAKE CITY, Utah: Over Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats, considered the most satisfactory auto- racing strip in the world, two Englishmen took turns last week to nee who could come closer to traveling six miles a mlnute-t-und incidentally break the world's land-speed record of 311 miles an hour, set last year by retired British Army Captain George E. T. Eyston. In last week's contest, 41-year-old Captain Eyston was the defending champion, 37-year-old John' Cobb the challenger. Sitting in the nose of his tear-shaped, front-and-rear- engined "Railton", Challenger Cobb streaked over the measured mile in a little over ten seconds, averaged 350 m. p. m. (for a north and south run), became the new king of speed. But only for 24 hours did King Cobb reign. Next morning Captain Eyston took his second turn (he broke his own record only three weeks ago). With his 7-ton, 8-wheeled "Thunderbolt" revamped, tail fin removed, and square nose streamlined, he regained his crown with u speed of 357 m. p. h., only 83 m. p. h. less than the fastest man has flown. At oiu-' point he reached a velocity of 525 feet a second (the muzzle velocity of a high calibr-; revolver bullet is 700 feet a .second > Scientists agreed that the Eng lishmen could not travel much faster and live to tell about it because present rubber tires can take just so much friction. Kiiig-for-a-day Cobb, who had originally intended to continuu the contest as long us weather permitted, blinked his eyes, decided to call it quits for this year School at Wesley Closed on Tuesday Wesley: There will no school at the public school Tuesday as the high school teachers will attend nn Institute at Brltt and the grade teachers will attend nn Institute at Algona.
