LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA "QUOTES" COMMENTS ON CURRENT TOPICS BY NATIONAL CHARACTERS r PARTY DEFENSE By JOSEPH T. ROBINSON Senator From Iowa. T HIS administration is being subjected to intense criticism, which is understandable considering the approach of next year's election. Our President lias been charged with everything from communism to despotism, nnd yet you cnnnot pick up fl dnlly paper thnt does not reflect a rls In the stock market, nn Increase In profits, a resumption of dividends; In fact, every manifestation that tells o a country bound hack to prosperity. .. It Is my hellef that when history writes Its review of the legislation oi this congress it will be made clear that the laws enacted were for the grentesl good to the greatest number. Pickard © Western Nemipajtr Unfa REPUBLICANS COULD By COL. WILLIAM J. DONA VAN Prominent Republican. T HE Republican party could reduce Federal payrolls materially without injuring the service. It could return direct relief to local and private agencies. It could stop the absorption of credit nnd capital for public plans and programs, many of which are dead before the final bill can be paid. To sum It up, the Republican party could steer this government back into those channels of personal liberty, home rule, states' rights nnd balanced authority which have been demonstrated as dependable during the last 150 years. The Republican party can take a definite, uncompromising stand for those principles, standards and traditions which have made this country what it is nnd which cannot be Ignored without changing it into a different kind of country. The Issue fronting JS Is clean-cut. Either we preserve the United States as It was bequeathed to us and as we have known it or we depart for fantastic adventures ID an unknown sea of guesswork. Speeches by President on Western Trip 'T'KAVELINQ rapidly to the Pa •*• ciflc coast for some fishing, Pres Ident Roosevelt delivered several Important addresses. The first was at Fremont, Neb. where he spoke to about 15,000 farmers and was enthusiastically received. Mr. Roosevelt set forth the chief accomplishments of the ad- ministratlon to date, and challenged his opponents to do better. He defende'd the President Roosevelt CANADIAN RECOVERY By R. O. McCULLOCH Insurance President. AS YOU know, at the present •L X time we have cheap money, and there is a great shortage in heavy goods equipment. With low interest rates and a renewal of confidence, the stage is set for a complete recovery and the end of the depression. Great Britain is an outstanding example. She balanced her budget and confidence was restored there, with the result that there Is prosperity in Great Britain, a»d her unemployment has been reduced by more than a million. Canada Is a young country which offers great opportuni, ties. Our natural resources are practically unlimited, and we have a virile people. I am convinced that we are on the threshold of business expansion greater than we have ever seen, and that this will arrive as soon as confidence is re-established. legality of the New Deal doings and made it plain that he would continue to carry on ex- Jeriments for the welfare of the teople. Defining his Idea of consti- utional government, he said Us function is to promote the gen- wal welfare, not by interfering un- wlth Individual liberties, but by bringing to the aid of the individual those powers of government which are essential to assure the continuance of the inalienable rights which the Constitution is intended to guarantee. It is democracy in the good old American sense of the word." Coming to the AAA, In which his bearers might be supposed to be most vitally Interested, the President asserted that "agricultural adjustment is an expression in concrete form of the human rights those farmer patriots sought to win when they stood at the bridge at Concord, when they proclaimed the Declaration of Independence, and when they perpetuated these ideals by the adoption of the Constitution." No matter what attempts may be made to tear It down, "the principle of farm equality expressed by agricultural adjustment will not die," the President told the crowd. The AAA has made "honorable history," the President declared, and as a result smoke is pouring from chimneys again and workers without regular jobs are obtaining employment. He served notice that it is the "The prevailing rate of recovery," the President said, "points to the speedy decline of federal expenditures for emergency activities." Unless the AAA's processing taxes are knocked out by the Supreme court, he argued, the government "will not need new taxes or increased rates in Its existing taxes to meet the expenses of its necessary annual operations." This will be true, he said, despite "erroneous and gloomy predictions" that "heavy Increases in taxation will be required to balance the budget and retire our public debt." Van Sweringens Recover Railway Empire AN SWERINGEN brothers have regained control over the vast railway and real estate empire they built and lost to New York bankers. At the height of the boom this was valued at §3,000,000,000. It was aken by a banking group when the Van Sweringens defaulted on loans of $-18,000,000 nnd put up at auction. The brothers regained control for $3,121,000 by bidding in the majority stock of the Allegheny corporation, holding company for all but one of the so-called Van Swer- Ingen roads, Including the Chesapeake & Ohio, Pere Marquette, Nickel Plate, Missouri Pacific, nnd Chicago & Eastern Illinois, and the Van Sweringen corporation through which the brothers ruled their vast real estate possessions. Two lots of miscellaneous securities were bid in by a New York stock firm for $1,082,000. The loss of the banking group on the deal totaled about $45,000,000. High Cost of Living la Subject of Inquiry /~\BEYING the instructions of the v -' President, the federal trade commission has begun a survey to determine why^the cost of living la mounting so high. Several members of the commission's staff started the investigation in Detroit, where the housewives staged n meat strike some weekg ago. Other members of the staff will take up the work In Chicago, and later the Inquiry will be carried on In other centers.

Hamilton Lewis of Illinois were glad to learn that he was recovering from the attack of pneumonia that laid him up in Moscow for several weeks. For n time It was feared the illness would have a fatal outcome because the senator's heart was weak. Late dispatches said he was able to take nourishment, but the physicians could not tell how soon he would be in condition to travel. Washington D : ~ ^ « j. igest j . _ '• ^^ ' .

HE radio in this country is practically entirely in the hands of those interested solely in Its commercial aspects. No matter how honest may have been the original thought, there Is fundamental danger In the Idea, more or less casually advanced, that the broadcasting business constitutes a fifth estate In our government. It is because the people, through their government, will not tolerate the creation of a fifth estate that they have, in the exercise of their sovereignty, taken over the control of the air and have passed the law regulating the "so of the air. purpose of his administration to "use every square mile of the United States for the purpose to which it is best adapted." Nature must be harnessed instead of despoiled," he asserted. A Boulder Dam the President assisted in the dedication of the great project and delivered an address in which he announced that government spending for employment purposes was nearing its end and that now private Industry must take up the burden of decreasing the army of the unemployed. He de fended the administration agains the charges of "boondoggling" am said its efforts "meet with the ap pmval of the people of the nation.' He touched only lightly on the power question.

Bicknell of Red Cross Taken by Death PRNEST p. BICKNELL, for 27 years prominent In the American Red Cross, died in Washington at the age of seventy-three soon after his return from Hawaii. He was vice chairman In charge of insular and foreign operations of the Red Cross and directed relief of the San Francisco earthquake; floods in the Ohio and Mississippi rivers; the Cherry and other mine disasters; forest fires and many catastrophles abroad, including the Messina earthquake in Italy. Florida Narrowly Escapes Another Hurricane A NOTHER fierce hurricane from •**• the Caribbean swept across the middle part of Cuba, causing more than a score of deaths and doing vast property damage, and then committee of the Republican national committee has held a meeting here, n session that started and ended with enthusiasm bubbling over. The reason tin members gave for all of their joy was, as expressed by Chairman Henry P. Fletcher, that "the tide has definitely turned and we are going out to defeat President Roosevelt for reelection." Whether all of this joy is justified, no one can tell, but certainly the Republican wheelhorses for the first time In almost five years have shown signs of genuine fight. They are convinced that Mr. Roosevelt and his New Deal are in a tailspin and they are committed now to help the present administration to continue until it crashes— help It by calling attention to every shortcoming and every mistake it has made. While, as I said, the executive committee meeting simply" bubbled over with enthusiasm, unbiased ob- ssrvers could not help reaching the conclusion after they watched the aiil m in sports the u survey.

Illinois Republicans for Knox for Presidency OOL.

As they did once before, the Italian delegates walked out of the meeting, and a spokesman explained that this was because they "would not sit at the same table with Ethiopia." In a secret session the council drafted its- report and framed its recommendations; but it also asked the committee of five to reconstitute itself so it would be ready to take advantage of any opportunity for mediation that offered in the near future. A feature of the council's session was an address by Capt. Anthony Eden, British minister for league affairs. Conversations in Rome between British Ambassador Sir Eric Drummond and Premier Mussolini had led some to think Great Britain was weakening, but Eden announced his government was "steadfastly determined to abide by its policy" as previously declared. Eden's attitude was supported by Peter Munch of Denmark and Maxim Litvlnov of Russia. Emp'eror Halle Selassie wired the eague requesting that In view of :he "increasingly provocative attl- :ucle of Italy" neutral observers be dispatched to Ethiopia to establish responsibility in case a clash occurred. The Ethiopian ruler notified the league that he could not delay general mobilization much longer, In view of the "increasing gravity of Italian aggression," but he decided to wait a little longer for action by the league before calling to arms his warriors. Mussolini, who asserted he ex- -^ pected Ethiopia would soon assault i Budget Summation Shows Reduction in Deficits N A "budget summation" given out at Washington by order of the President it is shown that the federal government deficits will be reduced by more than a billion and a quarter from the original est mates, because economic conditions have grown "decidedly better" and tax receipts are higher than The estimated den- flscai year wiu Italy's colonies, proceeded t<» put 250,000 troops in east Africa. Tvear- ly every day vessels left for Eritrea carrying large bodies of soldiers. On one of them went Prince Adelberto of Savoy, cousin of King Victor Emmanuel. In addition to the Italian troops, Mussolini will have half as many native fighters from Eritrea and Somallland. The duce intimated he would quit the League of Nations if it took any action against Italy, but he also offered to negotiate an accord with Great Britain. The British asked France to de: fine Its attitude should any nation attack the empire, and soon after Sir Samuel Hoare replied to France's questions regarding the British attitude toward possible trouble on the continent. The foreign secretary assured France that Great Britain would always support collective action against any aggressor. seemed to be heading directly for southern Florida. The residents there made all possible preparations for safety, but the storm suddenly veered and roared off to the northeast over the Atlantic. Soft Coal Miners Win; Strike Is Ended COFT coal miners were victor!- 0 ous in the negotiations for a new wage agreement, and resumption of work in the mines was promised for October 1. The men were out on strike for eight clays. Operators yielded to the union deman'ds when they learned that relief officials would aid the strikers. American Legion Elects Ray Murphy Commander A MERICAN Legionnaires in con ** vention in St. Louis adopted with shouts of approval the resolution for active opposition to "nazl ism, fascism, communism and other isms contrary to the principles enunciated in the Constitution." Still cheering, the delegates followed that up by asking the withdrawal of United States recognition of Russia. The veterans, recommended recent legislation for national defense and called for a larger army, continuation of the officers' training camps, the C. M. T. C. and R. O. T. C. in schools, and for a navy equal to any in the world. They asked all nations to work for world peace, and approve'd the neutrality resolution of the last congress. Cleveland, Ohio, was awarded the 1930 annual convention after four ballots. The national American Legion band championship was won by the Chicago Board of Trade post musicians, Franklin post was second, Omaha third, and Mineral Springs, Texas, fourth. At their final session the veterans elected J. Ray Murphy of Ida Grove, Iowa, national commander, and passed a resolution demanding immediate cash payment of the soldiers' bonus. Vice Commanders chosen were: Raymond A. Gales of Virginia, W. E. Whltlock of South Carolina, Whitney Godwin of Florida, Oscar Worthwine of Idaho, Lou Probst of Wyoming. Mrs. Melville Mucklestone of Chi- cngo was elected president of the American Legion auxiliary. Williams Says Business Must Share With Workers \ UBREY WILLIAMS, first situation that the committee did very little of a constructive nature. It may be that this group was not intended to map out many plans but if it did not have that purpose,' one is inclined to rise and inquire: Why hold a meeting? The one outstanding action taken was tiie authorization given Chairman Fletcher to establish a youn" Republican club division In the national committee headquarters here. The rest of the session that lasted all flay apparently was given over to the exchange of ideas. » * * Rank and file Republicans may take heart in the circumstances that . , „ - — willing to lend the use of his name. Thus, when u few weeks Mr. Lucas personally sent a i juco - tionnalre to the hundreds of Republican state and county chairmen, seeking their views as to a Presidential nominee for the party, Your man those who remembered his services his with the Republican national com- mlttee Immediately wondered what his object was. I have tried to ascertain what the purpose might be and have thus far had no success other than the statement which Mr Lucas made to me.

Republican standpoint, it ought to mean that they are all set to do business and to keep doing business until the'v have elected a candidate to the Presidency in November, 1030. But still, none of the Washington writers was able to determine exactly what is going to be clone. The Washington writers can hartlly be blamed, if inside information that leaks out is correct, because the executive committee really did not get very far with any plans. I said above that the wheelhorsos appeared to be full of fight. There was every evidence of this. There was also evidence of least, that there fights. There Is no doubt that'manv members of the national committee do not like Chairman Fletcher Likewise, Chairman Fletcher Is not enthusiastic about certain members of the committee over which he presides. It is made to appear, there- tore that there may be some mud slinging before the machine is attuned for the campaign next year He told me at the time of his poll that he wanted.to discover exactly what the sentiment was of those party chairmen far removed from the hotbed of party control. It was big conviction, he said, that the method he was employing would bring to the attention of those in I control of the Republican party facts that should awaken them and keep them from allowing the party machine to be subordinated to the wishes of a few. He declined to name those few. Now, however, he Is in the limelight in a new fashion.
