TO MAKE SOME BOY OR GIRL, HAPPY IS ENOUGH CHRISTMAS FOR ANYBODY The Christmas season is here; carols will float from uplifted voices; symbols of the season will grace all places of religious worship. And moat of the homes in our own community will be very happy. But there are a few homes where that happiness will not be felt—unless somebody does something about it Somewhere near you there is a family, with probably a little boy or a little girl, who will not find that Santa has visited them on Christmas morning. Their parents are too poor, or too unfortunate, to make the financial sacrifice necessary to bring Santa into their home. Most homes have more than they need for happiness in the way of toys, games, and just plain food. Let each family blessed with good fortune, make it a point to see that some less fortunate home really has a visit from Santa Glaus. Let the good deed you do, speak your Christmas spirit Your reward will be that of a lighter heart, and a sense of having done something to help your fellow man and woman, and to ease the aching hearts of those poor little boys and girls who have longed and yearned for some "Christmas" in their own home. In order to lay by something for their declining years, for money to keep the wolf from the door. In other words, why should thrifty, provident individuals be taxed at the end of their lives to support those who spent lavishly and enjoyed the pleasures of life during their productive years? To make it more plain: Why should the hard-working, thrifty people be taxed to care for those who threw away their money and opportunities during life? There is an injustice here that has escaped our sentimental citizens. This leads to the thought that "pensions" should be derived from the Wages of those who draw them. Let us levy i tax on their earnings if they are to be eligible for pensions. Poppy Cock and Poppy Cock, Again Northwood Anchor: Every Iowa weekly newspaper manager ia acquainted with the postal regulation which threatens to bar his publication from the United States mails if it contains .anything which can even remotely be construed as mention- Ing a lottery or game of chance. He has to be careful that the advertisement of a sale, for instance, does not contain an offer of a free gift to one of several competitors—the first lady to make a purchase, for instance. Yet daily newspapers print under huge headlines the names of the winners in the Irish sweepstakes and almost daily tell who won big money In a horse race, or otherwise publish stories which have games of chance as their basis. Nobody seems to know why the little fellows have to be so careful while the big fellows seem to do about as they please. * • * Iowa Legislature Simply Must Make Good Eagle Grove Eagle:- Governor Wilson takes office definitely pledged to department consolidation at the state house. But one vote defeated the consolidation bill last winter, although it definitely would have saved the state over $400,000. If the republican legislature does not consolidate, trim fire, and retrench state expenses this coming winter, it will go out of office in 1940 by almost unanimous consent. The people will not accept excuses. They were disgusted with democratic management of the state's business. They will be more disgusted if trial now given the republicans proves to be a fizzle. * * * Forget the Contest Brltt News: Looking at It from L. J. Dickinson's standpoint he has all to gain arid nothing to lose in a senatorial contest But looking at it from a party standpoint the republicans have a lot to lose ;n reactions that might set in after a contest even though Mr. Dickinson were seated. 1940 is coming. Iowa republicans have made nice gains. It is better that the gains be held and that the party grow In favor. Forget that contest, Mr. Dickinson, for the good of the G. O. P. LETTERS TO SANTA CLAUS THIS MUST BE WHAT IS KNOWN AS ORIENTAL PROCESS OF REASONING Japanese newspapers and official spokesmen are pointing out that at the Lima, Peru, conference of statesmen from both North and South America, the United States Is seeking to extend its sphere of influence, and draw a parallel between that and the extension of Japans sphere of influence in Asia. So far as it goes, the deductions are correct. But they forget to point out that Japan's sphere of influence has been extended by armed might in conquering first Manchuria and then part of China by the power of the sword. The United States is merely trying to organize all countries of the Americas into a cooperative league for self-protection, and Is saying to the "grabby" nations that we Intend to see that no further foreign control of American republics is attempted, and that if necessary we would fight to prevent it. There is quite a difference between extending a sphere of influence gained by overpowering the other fellow, and a sphere of Influence gained by saying to your neighbor that his country belongs to him, and we'll help him keep it If necessary. Opinions of Other Editors Murtagh on the Job Wright County Monitor (a strong republican paper): Although the executive council okeyed Leonard Wegman'e bill of more than $2800 as a fee for Investigating wholesale liquor concerns, the state comptroller refused to issue a warrant for the same. The matter was referred to the attorney general's office for a ruling on the legality of the the transaction, with a negative reply. By this one act Mr. Murtagh saved the taxpayers fully one- half his annual salary. * * * The "Spending" Raising Taxes Northwood Anchor: It is not unlikely that the next Congress will increase the federal income tax assessment and at the same time lower the exemptions. The moves are all in that direction. It will be a good thing, too, because it will awaken millions of small income folks, heretofore tax exempt, to the fact that the power to tax is the power to destroy. And also that government money is positively not plucked from trees or bushes, aa so many seem to believe. The sooner everybody of mtaure age finds out that there really isn't any Santa Claus the sooner the tax assessing brigands are going to be stopped. * * * Good News (?) for Taxpayers Humboldt Republican: Some time ago Harry Hopkins, flushed with the favorable results of the upending spree indulged in by the government, said: •We will spend and spend, tax and tax, and elect und elect." It was apparently a fine program but Jt backfired. The trouble was that the taxes had to .be paid by too large a majority of the voters. * * * No CongraU for Senator Gillette Webster City Freeman: Senator Gillette is reported as saying that he has not yet received any telegram from Former Senator Dickinson congratulating him on his election. Possibly the telegram got lost In transit or was delivered to the wrong p*rty by mistake. You know such things sometimes happen. * * • Taking Care of the Prodigals Humboldt Republican: If a man needs a pension in his declining years it is an unspoken assumption that he was unable to earn enough during his life to put by a competence for his old age. This may have been because he lacked the earning power, because of mental deficiency, or that he was pursued by a series of misfortunes that drained hirn of his earnings. It means that if all of our aged people are to receive pensions, they surely should be paid no more for their services when working than is necessary to meet ordinary living expenses. The thought in mind is that no set of people should be permitted to earn liberally through their productive years, spending lavishly as they live; and then turn to those who denied themselves Dear Santa: I have been a good boy.

The MARCH OF TIME • . , \ no. o. t. r*r o*r.. , Prepared by the Editor* of TfMB The Weekly Newtrr.atatint PRESIDENTS BEQUEST FOR POSTERITY WASHINGTON: President Roosevelt summoned Washington correspondents to his study on the second floor of the White House last week to give them "the greatest human interest story" in the six years he has been president. Beaming but serious, he then handed out a statement:— "Since 1910 I have carefully preserved all of my correspondence, public papers, pamphlets, books, etc. ... It is my desire that they be kept as a whole and intact in their original condition, available to scholars of the future In one definite locality . . "That part of my family's country place at Hyde Park on which we live will, without doubt, evea tuaily go to the Federal Government to be maintained for the benefit of the public by the Federal Government It is, therefore, my thought that funds can be raised for the erection of a separate, modern, fireproof building ... AH of this has the approval and consent of my mother, who owns the property during her lifetime. . . " Before the newspapermen arrived to receive this statement, President Roosevelt had been host to an impressive array of educators and historians. These men, said he, would form a committee to raise the funds for his plan, taking as their first contribution Mr. Roosevelt's earnings on his already published papers. When Franklin Roosevelt's home becomes government property, a historical precedent will be set; for the homes of such predecessors aa Washington, Jefferson, Jacfckon and Lincoln are all maintained by private organizations. The Roosevelt history trove will include the president's books and pictures on the Navy (best private collection in the U. 6.) and a sizable collection on the history of Hyde Park and Dutchess county. Chief lacuna in the Roosevelt record for posterity: a diary. The president has started one on three January firsts, never kept going later than January 4. USHA IS °~ "BROKE BUT HAPPY" WASHINGTON: Administrator Nathan Straus of the U. S. Housing Authority, which has been granted $800,000,000 from Congress for slum clearance since its organization 13 months ago, last week slammed his books shut, announced that the authority was "broke but happy." Although there were only 46 local housing authorities when USHA set up shop, there are now 221 (In 31 states) qualified to take advantage of USHAS' bargain terms—90% of the cost in long-term, low-Interest loans—for slum clearance and low- rental housing programs. Not actually broke, USHA has signed J291,658,000 worth of contracts, earmarked $355,919,00 more, will keep the rest of its nest egg as a safety margin until fresh funds are forth coming. Without directly asking for any, Administrator .Straus broadly hinted: "This agency could easily earmark $500,000000 more if it had it." BU/ZERS ANlf ^ OVERTIME WASHINGTON: Buzzing around to boost the Federal Wagca & Hours Law, Administrator Elmer Frank Andrews last week buzzed off the following opinions for Denver and Chicago businessmen:— "Anyone who insists on working overtime without the knowledge or consent of his boss should be fired." "If a man has an office with a desk on which there is a buzzer, and if he can press that buzzer and have somebody come dashing in response --then he's an executive," and is exempt from the law's overtime re*u- utlons." ROBOTS BY DENNY FOR U. S. ARMY WASHINGTON: Movie Actor Reginald Denny recently sold to the U. S. War Department six radio- controlled airplanes, to be used as targets for anti-aircraft gunners and pursuit pilots. First developed in California as a Denny hobby the miniature (8 ft. by 12 ft), gasoline driven robots need no pilots can fly at 7,000 to 8.000 feet for 30 minutes. Until the planes are delivered next summer, practicing gunners must continue to get along with colored streamers lowed behind full-sized craft. IS-BETH'EEN SENATORS AT WASHINGTON WASHINGTON: Representing their electorates In Washington last week were three Senators who were elected to fill vacancies from Nbv- ember 9 through January 2, although the Senate will not sit until January 3. With her mother, a stenographer and a clerk, Interim Senator Gladys Pyle (Rep.) drove all the way from South Dakota to Washington "because," she said, "I wouldn't feel like'a senator unless I did." As soon as she arrived in Washington, she personally screwed her nameplate on the door of her temporary office; spoke at a luncheon of the Republican National Committee; had a look at the Capitol; hurried down to the Interior Department to discuss "South Dakota problems"; drew doodles on a pink Senate memo pad. "This life", she exclaimed, "Is a hectic whirl." Interim Senator Alexander Grant Barry (Rep.) from Oregon spent about as much money getting elected as he will be paid for serving ($1,511.12 plus $1,818 for five clerks' salaries and $18.75 for stationery). last week. Noting that the moon was full over Woburn, he ordered the local electric plant to switch off the street lights and leave them off on future moonlit nights. When astonished citizens protested, the mayor explained that he saved the city $70 a night, declared that com bined moon ana street light was so bright as to blind automoblllsts. Mindful that the moon is treacherous, he planned- to hire two WPA workers as moon watchers. Their job: to call the Boston Edison Co. and order the juice turned on when moonlight fails. -4»_ HULL SAYS, "WE MUST STRIVE" LIMA, Peru: Representatives of the 21 independent states on the American continent met at Lima last week for their eighth Pan American conference, the advertised purpose of which was to discuss common political, military and economic policies by which the "American Democracies" could oppose "European Dictatorships." About the only things which the 2] nations have in common are their location In the same hemisphere and their anxiety to protect themselves against the growing disturbances on the other side of the world, and this lack of basic harmony was nowhere better reflected than in the conferences opening. Most of the delegates had come with resolutions to propose, and most of the others were willing to accept them—with reservations. They were willing to endorse hemispheric defensive military cooperation from the U. S.— but no military alliances. They were willing to damn totalitarianism in general—but no specific totalitarian state in particular. They were will- Ing to accept the principle of Argentina's strictures against disruptive foreign political movements— but those who still clung to the principle of civil liberties could not accept it in detail. The South and Central American states were ready to trade their coffee, rubber and ores for U. S. money and machinery— but the U. S. could not take any-of their cotton or much of their beef. That left dictatorships like Germany to continue bartering in. South and Central America. In this bumpy atmosphere Secretary of State Cordell Hull moved with care and caution. Hope, confidence and cooperation were the keynotes of his non-specific and resoundingly applauded opening address: "The worlds greatest need today is that there be created and maintained conditions which will give to nations and to indvilduals peace of mind and of spirit Toward producing those conditions, we must strive with all our strength in every field—political, social, economic and moral . . . We of the Americas are fortunate beyond words In being so situated that we can make our example and our influence a potent factor in promotion of conditions in which there may be peace with justice and with security." Secretary Hull had the benefit of a great deal of emotional good Plump, ruddy-faced Interim Sen- j win from many of the delegations, „, T^O. «„.. <»„,„ ,r>-_ , , arge , y M a resu , t of th(j ^ ta: presslon he, Franklin Rooevelt and the reassuring Good Neighbor policy' made at the Buenos Aires conference In 1936. Cried Peru's Foreign Minister Carlos Concha:— "President Roosevelt's Good Neighbor policy, which is now exercising such a healthy and promising Influence on international relations on this continet, is the best expression of the new route that Pan-Americanism is taking in these times. Therefore, free of suspicions and misgivings. . . we meet here today under the best possible auspices, animated by the intention of perfecting the judicial measures that govern our American way of living together." On the more practical side were the instructions which some delegations—largely Central American- had brought from home: vote solid- of California is editor and publisher of the Santa Barbara "News- Press." In Washington he knew enough not to take the 20 job-hunting letters he received every day too seriously. Instead he read Jim Farley's instructive autobiography, dined with friends at the Shoreham Hotel, danced, declared: "This is just a honeymoon." Meanwhile, in Minneapolis, Minn., one-time Interim Senator Guy Victor Howard toted up the financial and political rewards of the two months he served in 1936-37. acomplishments, he said, His were to land a couple of WPA projects, help a man get out of jail, get some congressional directories and Capitol calendars for friends back home. His rewards:- he has enough stationery to last the rest of his life; he gets invited out a lot more than he used to be. "For Instance," he says, "I now go to two or three funerals a week." - n — MAYOR KANE'S MOON SAVES ELECTRICITY SOBURN, Massachusetts: Mayor William Edward Kane of Woburn (pop. 19,700) once bought a lion's cage wherein to parade drunks through the streets. He also peaked through tavern windows, struck from welfare rolls the name of re- liefers whom he saw in their cups. But Mayor Kane embellished his men, who earn as much as $10,000 a season tof shooting harpoons tttm A cannon. Instead of being dragged alongside, the Whale is pulled aboard a "floating factor/ 1 ship aad converted into oil fight on the spot Of the world's 39 "floating factories", which annually take 3,000,000-odd barrels of whale oil, only two fly the U. S. flag, smaller of the two is the American Whaling Co.'s "Frango", mother ship and rendering plant for a fleet of six whale chasers. Last spring, when the "Frango" waa about to set out for Shark Bay off Western Australia, the U. S. Coast Guard asked for a volunteer to see that no International treaty provision was violated. Lieutenant Thomas Robley Midl> lyg, 29, volunteered for the job. Back in Manhattan last week, Midtlyng said his life aboard Ship had been clear sailing as far as Shark Bay. There Captain Johannes Smith and his crew had found that the bay was over-hunted, were tempted to kill undersize whales. Acordtng to Lieutenant Midtlyng, they brought In humpback whales shorter than 35 feet and whales which were nursing their young.'Although the crew had insisted at the outset that they were experts at telling the length of a whale in the water, they now argued: "It's difficult to tell how long they are." Then they told him that they found the whales "dead and floating." When the "Frango" put In at its pier off Qtaten Island, N. Y., Lieutenant Midtlyng hopped ashore, made his report Twenty-four hours later U. S. officials seized the ship's $500,000 cargo, sealed it, filed a libel action against 423 tons of her whale oil. REAL DEFLATION NEW YORK: Three years ago a 395-pound Russian housewife waddled Into the office of Professor James Short of Columbia University Medical School and announced that she wanted to reduce. Dr. Short gave her a thorough physical examination, prescribed a well-balanced diet of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamin* and minerals amounting to only 006 calories a day. In the "Journal" of the American Medical Association Dr. Short last week described the historic deflation which followed, the case of a human being who, In 20 months, got rid of 239 pounds. Only discomfort she suffered was the surgical removal of an apron of skin, two feet long and one foot wide, which hung loosely over her deflated abdomen. When she weighed In at 156 pounds, said Dr. Short, "she was In excellent health and spirits." rt .-..IT ^ .-..»• -« --*-' ATTORNEYS AT LAW It. J. Harrington 3, D.
