In the sphere of government, 1934 will mark either successful establishment or the removal of ideas which have hitherto been only the fond dreams of what our more conservative friends are Inclined to call "radical." WKh a socialistic principle beng adopted of passing out the fruits of human labor to the many instead of concentrating it in the hands of the few, the purchasing power of the public Is being greatly increased. This offers a field for the manufacturer and the retail store which has been closed to him for the past several years—a field which he will welcome back. From a business standpoint, persons who have gone without what they needed for the past few years, may find themselves able to buy, and they will buy. Commerce should show a consistent gain. The American public has decided It does not care to be buffaloed by politclam, statesmen or any other civic leader. It has shown a tendency to appreciate having the truth thrown its way; it is thinking more cleerly and from a better foundation of bedrock than was the case a few years back. Hardships and a depression have erased the rosy halo of self-satisfaction and substituted a desire for improvement in every line of endeavor, and 1934 should see some of these ambitions fulfilled. Welcome, young fellow, and when you leave us a year hence, we sincerely hope you will be able to truthfully cay that we havo made the most of the opportunities you •re offering us. ALL IN A FEW MONTHS Back in March, 19S3, Labor, Capital, Banking and the General Public might have been likened to a quartet of patients hi a hospital. Labor was so sick it couldn'b even reach for a medicine bottle. Business was almost too woe begon to criticize. The Banking circle was confronted with paralyais and the General Public felt itself caught with sleeping sickness. But we must be convalescing. Just like a patient who begins to recover his old time energy, and wants to get out of bed before the dodtor thinks he ia ready, Labor, Capital, Banking and other lines are feeling the urge to get into the scramble again. And they are doing it, with the result that some of these conferences, etc. have degenerated into pure dog fights. In ten months, the sick patients have convalesced to the point where they can again fight each other— which to a pretty good sign of recovery. People are still demanding a change. The only difference is thai some are demanding * Change to the changes. • • * Some friend of the office sent in a velly funny Chinese joke, dealing with a person named Tu Yung Tu . . . the Joke will be explained upon request, but one of the planks in otir 1934 Journalistic platform deals with a greater amount of caution in regard to what is printed, and we feel that under the circumstances discretion is the better part of valor ... we appreciate the thought, however. « • * The only thing that some of the critics seem to be sure about the question of rubber dollars and controlled currency is what they think of It. • • • Frank Seller had a strange request made of him . . . a youthful relative was asked what he wanted for Christmas, and the little fellow replied he wanted a stovepipe hat. • • • Simile: As popular as Anthony Advene. • » « After some lapse of time, it has come to our attention that Cecil Benner, former telephone employee here, now at Humboldt, was the victim of a good Joke . . . our local briefs writer was Informed that Cec had been promoted to an "unpunctual" clerk at Humboldt, and as none of us are overly familiar with telephone company parlance, it went into print thai way ... it now comes to light that Cec is a "commercial" clerk and testman . . . which Is something else again ... Of course It was only natural, knowing Cec as we do, that we thought there might possibly be some grain of truth to the former title, and then again, as we view his punctuality In keeping Algona dates, we should have known that the title of "unpunctual" did not apply to him . . . at any rate, what a whale of a dlfferenceono word will make. • • • A true story Is told of a local man, who was offered two samples of whiskey by a friend Just back from Chicago ... he could have either bottle ... he tasted both of them, and picked out the bottle which contained moonshine whiskey . . . the other contained real bonded stuff . . . maybe that's Just another advertisement for the lasting effect Templeton will have after repeal. • • * Yoo Hoo, Senator I—"Nobody opposes a change with such stubborn indignation us the guys who made a change necessary."—Ted CocX. • • • Famous Last Line—And I hereby reabolve. . . . OTHER EDITORS A BIGGER AND BETTER WAR The first universal, scientific war curve, plotting 903 major wan since 500 years before Christ, shows that the tate war was eight tunes bigger than all the other wars rolled into one. AH of ancient Greece, of Rome and ten centuries of Europe's eight foremost fighting nations dwindle before the 1914-1919 conflict. Austria had 131 wan, France 185, Holland 23, Spain 79, England 176, Germany 24, Italy 32 and Russia 151 In the span of their existence. Considering the World War and Its staggering superiority to all other warlike attempts, one can readily un- dentaffjf why >t la so necessary for all the nations today to spend bi|it<>ni and billions for armament.

Capable Leadership Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune: So far as we are concerned personally, we have no fault to find with Clyde Herring. He's a democrat and we're reubllcan, but that doesn't blind us to the fact that he Is giving Iowa a mighty good demonstration of leadership. • • • Corn-Hog Ramon Webster City Journal: There Is talk that a few farmers who refuse to sign the corn-hog reduction contract are figuring on increasing their corn acreage, hoping to profit by better prices because of the reduced acreage planted by others. Whether or not there Is any truth in these reports the Freeman-Journal doesn't know, but it does know that farmers who plant more corn than usual in the hope of profiting by the reductions made by others do not have the general welfare of farming interests at heart. If such tactics are rcaorted to farmers of the neighborhood can make It very unpleasant for the ones guilty of such methods and may do so. • * • Extravagant Government Salaries Eagle Grove Eagle: Senator Dickinson gives out the Information that the Agricultural Adjustment Act coats annually in salaries $7,118.740. The salaries range from $10,000 to $5300 a year. The senator makes no comment only that he thinks the information should be given to the public. In times like the present such salaries for that service will appear to most people as the extreme of criminality. They are far in excess of the necessity for such service and wholly without any justification, and la entirely aside from what is spent in the administration of the act. There are 3,704 having jobs at these exorbitant salaries. ODD THINGS AND NEW-By Lame Bode SMOKERS, . DANGEROUS/ ' Op I7SS FOREST FIRES IN NEW YORK STATE LAST YEAR, W6R6 CAUSED BY SMOKERS.

EARL ELBERT AND GENEVA WALTERS OF WmiTEMORE UNITE IN MARRIAGE The Man About Town Says THl? ELMUR FELLOW Where's Elmer? We'd like to find him. Anybody vho can so completely take the minds of a great American public from their trials and tribulations long enough to start a nation-wide search for him, Is, In our humble opinion, some gent. And why not have a little fun? While we scramble for the possession of worldly goods, and vie with each other in the marts of trade, we need an occasional tonic of laughter and nonsense, and if Elmer is the boy who can supply these needs, someone should fix him up with a Carnegie medal. So if you see Elmer, send him over our way. We'd like to meet the fellow. An editor in Ohio was lost while hunting and went ten days without food. That's a long tune, even for an editor. Again* Hog Price* Esthervllle News: More than 9.000 farmers In half a dozen counties in Illinois have pledged to sell no more hogs direct to packers. Such a movement Is sweeping the middle western states. There is a bill before the Iowa legislature calculated to stop direct buying and It very likely may be passed. It is up to the fanners, however, to register their protest against the direct bying system and against the packers' high handed tactics in taking the processing tax out of the farmer Instead of the consumer. Some of tha local farm leaders have been talking of organizing a meeting to discuss the hog marketing system and what can be done about it. The leaders should get busy, and bring a well Informed speaker to BstherviUe. If Iowa and the other principal hog producing states will protest loudly enough and demand that the disastrous marketing practices be stopped the sooner federal action may be expected.

AT THE STATE CAPITAL THIS WEEK By Rep. A. H. Bonnstetter State House, December 30th: I stated in a previous letter that House File No. 180, a bill which seeks to separate the Iowa State Farm Bureau from the extension department of Iowa State Agricultural College, Is vigorously op- poaed by the Farm Bureau officials. The organization was perfected in the year 1019. At that time its efforts were directed along three lines: educational, social and legislative. Later the service department was added to the setup. The educational ^oartment was almost entirely sponcTea by the extension department of the Iowa State Agricultural College. It touched every phase of agricultural activity and although it Is said "that this program contributed to over production" I still feel that its value cannot be questioned. Quality farm products and efficiency in producing them became the slogan and In order to thoroughly appreciate the progress made along this ijim we need only uicture what conditions the farm would be without wetd eradication, fruit tree Hrayicg, hen culling, cow testing associations, thu UcLaln county hog raising system, fcoil correction, knowing the value of legumes, women's work, 4-H club work, etc. Every farmer in the state has consciously or unconsciously adopted one or more of the projects and many of them do cot stop to think that all of these ideas were made available through the extension service. The social side of the Farm Bureau also had its value. It went hand in hand with the educational program and it contributed in a very material way in bringing people of diSereiit communities more closely together. I know that I cuntacttd many people who are DOW my be£t friends in Ju&t this way and I am sure that others have bad the same experience. The legislative and service divisions of the Farm Bureau, however, did not bring about such happy results. The Farm Bureau has always boasted that It was a non-political farm organization. The truth is thai no organization is non-political that endeavors to sponsor a legislative program. Any attempt to advance such a program requires 1 contact with politicians and this im| mediately places the organization in ! politics. | In Iowa the Farm Bureau is viewed with suspicion from a political standpoint by many people. This suspliJ- ous feeling has been aroused throughout the state because for years past its leaders have been appointed to lucrative federal positions and because the organization's Influence is felt in many county elections. The fact that the Farm Bureau is largely supported by public funds, places it in a position where it cannot ! consistently sponsor a legislative pro\ gram which is beneficial to a particular group at the expense of otiier groups. The same thing can be said with reference to political parties. The service department of the Farm Bureau has also contributed greatly to , its unpopularity. It indulges in selling I insurance, lime, commercial fertilizers, chemicals, mineral mixtures, oil, etc. How can anyone blame a taxpayer operating a private enterprise for resenting the tactics employed by an organ ization which reaches into the pockets of taxpayers to maintain Itself and tr,(-n uses funds so derived to compete with these private enterprises in a business w&y? ihc time has come when the Farm Bureau must bt- separated from the extension service. The Bureau's relationship to this department is now and has been for a few years past strictly of a parasitic nature. (At the present time the Farm Bureau la attempting to ride on tne corn-hog program). Many people have for the past few years paid their membership fees to trie Bureau because they were interested in 4-H club work and other extension service. The county agent devoted a good share of his time to memtoershlD work because a certain number of members was ne- cessarp In order to make the county eligible for appropriations and his job was at stake. If House File No. 180 becomes a law the following will be accomplished: 1. All features of value In the present set up will be retained. 2. All features that disrupt the harmony of existing farm organization will be eliminated. 3. The cost of carrying out the plan will not exceed the cost of the present setup. 4. The county agent will devote all his time in service to all the people of the county. 5. The extension department need no longer be embarrassed by any action of the Farm Bureau. 6. The Farm Bureau will be requlr- td to stand on its own feet. This U the greatest blessing that can come to the organization. It will be placed on equal footing with other farm organizations and simply means that henceforth legislative as well as other programs can be sponsored by the members, without fear or embarrassment. The extersion service and the farm bureau are not affiliated in Indiana Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri and Kansas. In Minnesota the county agent, is optional. It appears that agriculture is facina controlled production for some time. Henry Wallace selected the extension department to carry out this program. It k> up to us to put our home In order so this proposition can be carried to a successful conclusion. Sincerely. A. H. Bonnstetter.
