AM) IIAMMILT, HEHIME DIEHAKDS [Monroe Coim(.v Jioivs.J Sympathetic as we lire with any program •which will continue In Improve Ihe roads of Iowa, we have Hide pallonee wllh (ho efforts to discredit Governor Dan Turner for his veto of Iho road 1)111. As we understand It. the governor plaeed his slump of disapproval on this bill because of Ihe fuel that II provided for unwarranted and nnnceded expansion of Iho present primary road system, nnd threatened to postpone. Indefinitely Mie needed al-tendon to the secondary roads of the state. Our candid opinion Is that It is time wo had n governor wlio didn't have one ear turned coiisliiiilly In (lie dlrecllmi of tlint handsome highway commission building In Ames; Ihe other on the offices of the Iowa (Joint lioiids Association in lies .Moines, in recent, years any one who has dared lo criti- cise tlie Amos autocrats wiss Immediately branded as :i miid-roadcr and several other choice epilhels. The individual who deplored the waste and extravagance which was constantly In evidence in die mushroom growfli of our highway system was ticketed as being nnprogri'sslve. To differ with the chief of the autocrats, Fred While, was Ihe unpardonable sin. Itul times change. The administration of Governor Turner may Iinve- been a mess. One of Its bright spots, we believe, Is his courage In calling a halt to this riot of luxury In the matter of roads nnd insisting that there were others to be considered be- eldo tho trans-state tourists and die cement plants of the state. [Esllicrvllle Dally >'cws.] Oov. Dan Turner Is still attacked by the reactionary daily press of Iowa. Some of these papers of Hie la^je cities In Iowa would pretend that, the governor has now done something terrible In turning down the road act, ftut In every case these same papers which criticise him, also fought him In the election. They were hostile to him and his tax pro- grum then and they are yet. Some of those larger dallies have gone through the pretense of treating' the news events of the last ses- • slon of the legislature In an Impartial way, but in reality their news columns were framed against the governor. Governor Turner, in so far as wo havo been able to see, did exactly what the voters expected of him. The enemies he bus now are those he had when he ran for office and the road act is Just a sham. The real Issue Is still taxes, lie should turn a denf ear to die reactionary press. They weren't able before to defeat this man, who lost only IS voles in his home county, and they probably won't, be able to do so again. [Representative "Uaniey" Allen In the [I'ocahontas County Democrat.] The die-hards of the old llammlll regime arc sharpening their axes. Their camp followers in the country newspaper game are doing In an editorial way what their big ally, 'tlie neivspuper IOWH depends nil." does in reporting the news—distort the fuels, misrepresent, the motives of tlieir opponents and confuse the people of (lie state. Uiil n year is a long time, and the Democrat fondly hopes that these die-hards bring on their Glen Haynes or some oilier candidate to contest with Dun Turner for the governorship, l.y that lime the iico\il(> will be informed and then what a licking will bo handed die diehards of the old llammlll regime. ruthless foe, 1 but the Turner cause thrived under' spirited opposition a year ago and there is evidence that It will do so again if need be, Plain Talk seems to believe that the movement for a candidate against Turner Is futile and will die out. People who like a good fight will hope not, and If the opposition picks Haynes, eo much the better. There are a lot of Turner sharp-shooters who would be delighted with Haynes for a target. They need not oil up their guns yet, however. "When the cocky "good roads" boys have had time to cool off they may listen to hard sense and conclude to make the best of a losing bargain. Topics of the Times There is sound economics behind President Hoover's insistence that wages be kept up. Reduce wages and you automatically reduce buying power, the very thing needed to set the wheels of industry turning again. The Colyum Let's Not Be Too D—d Serious I N HIS INHUMAN Interest column H. Ward Barnes, addresses the following communication to "John W. Cnlry. Editor Rear Seat, Sioux City Journal"— "\Ve got to do something about your grammarian partner, W. C. Dewel up at Algonn.

In many counties last year the voters gave their reactionary local newspapers what amounted to a vote of no confidence, but the editors, true to Bourbon instincts, learned nothing. They nre again aping the reactionary dailies and riding to the same old fall. The Council Bluffs Non-Pareil exhorts its fellow anti-income taxers to plan attacks on all fronts in case another tire-primary campaign develops next year. Well, the C. B. N.-P. ought to be appointed general or something on the misrepresentation front. The Mason City Globe-Gazette has twice asserted that Governor Turner could have had a state income tax if he had insisted on passage of the assessor bill in the House. Presumably the G.-G. would not broadcast this claim without facts to back it up. Let's see the proof, please. Opinions of the Editors Legislators Who Stood for the People. Ringsted Dispatch—Two of the outstanding men in the legislature this year were Representative Bonnstettcr of Kossuth county and Representative Donlon of Palo Alto county. Both were serving their first terms and both were deincrats. Our .state legislature in both house and senate would be better if there were more j democratic members.

If these qualities are not incorporated into the very warp and •woof of their newspapers, their readers will somehow "sense" it and their influence will be anil. Able, militant Ira A. Nichols, of the 'Iowa 3Talls Citizen, himself the essence of the qualities in question, puts the .case succinctly in the following comment: The Newell Mirror calls attention to the fact -that here and there a weekly newspaper has .great influence, while the bulk of weekly newspapers have no influence.at nil. This is very true. AVhenever you find a newspaper hewing to tho line, intelligently, fearlessly, effectively, unselfishly, prosecuting the cause of the com. mon man, you will find a newspaper that has influence. People read what it has to say and follow the paths of truth that are clearly outlined. "Whenever you find a newspaper that is prompted by selfish interests, often when it does not «ven know it, the people quickly take its num- ; ber and give no heed to its words. Wherever you .have a newspaper that makes a specialty of being a conformist to that which is, you find a newspaper with little influence. AVhenever you lind a newspaper kowtowing to party labels and kowtowing to politicians, you find a newspaper .to which little heed is given. It might also be •said that the independent, fearless, unselfish, forward-looking papers are always in the minority and the fighting is always good. Mr. Nichols might have added that wherever you find a newspaper catering to some press association or other clique in the hope of office, » directorship, or other petty recognition, you iind a newspaper which caters to other hidden interests also and while it may be a business success commands little or no respect for its editorial opinions. There is an old saying that murder will out. Another way to put it is, truth will prevail. Self- interest, insincerity, humbug, fraud cannot be •concealed. This is true of all human relations. <Given time, the human system develops immunity to disease. In the same way man has in the long ages developed an unconscious mass psychology which intuitively leads him to resist selfish manipulation of his opinions. Happy ifa sthe editor who recognizes this fact and so conducts himself as to justify and possess the con- dUdence of his constituency. THE "GOOD ROADS" THREAT TO OPPOSE A SECOND TERM FOR TURNER According to Plain Talk, of Des Moines, there •was a meeting at Des Moines a week ago Friday ito organize an anti-Turner movement in 1932 ""Its transactions," says Plain Talk, are hidden to the deepest secrecy, but it can be stated tha •the one thing which came out of it, and which •will appear important in the coming months thistory of politics in Iowa, is to be a statewid organization and a statewide canvassing of pos isibilities in the way of determining on a candi date to go to bat with the governor." This is interesting, and even more interesting is the rumor reported by Plain Talk that th •candidate has already been found in the perso at Col. Glenn C. Haynes, former auditor of stat "Who resigned to become secretary of the Goo. Hoads Association of Iowa. The so-called "good roads" element was ho with indignation when Governor Turner vetoe -the enabling act, the object of which was to pro Vide for issuing state bonds in case they wer voted by the people. Inasmuch as the propose election has since been called off by the suprem court's decision that the constitutional amend ment which was to have been submitted to th people was invalid, it is somewhat difficult t Bee bow much political use can be made of th veto. The "good roads" men, however, belong t an element which is opposed to the governor o general principles, and it is conceivable tha they will make the attempt to unseat him any tow. The governor and his friends have no reaso In that event to fear the outcome. They will, o course, have to wage a tremendous batt: •gainst an able, organized, well financed, an Yes. Mr. 1'olleli, "Hlek" is There In Plain Sight, and So is "Hie!" [Story City Herald.] A couple of weeks ago we butted into a dis- O h-jcussion that was raging at Lehigh tinent the word "hick". Editor Pellett, of the Argus, claimed that AVebster didn't recognize the word. AVo looked it up in our dictionary _and found it there, and proceeded to tell the world about it. Now Pellett says he resents the idea of bringing Webster into the controversy, but anyway the word just isn't in his Webster's New Interna- i tional, nor is it to be found in Winston's 1030 Thesaurus—whatever that Pellett, as so many others, Jtuvernor's denouncers to iu-.e j crl - s y iro ugh failure to examine the lower dock of the International's double-decked volume. On page 1014, last column of lower deck, he will find "hick" as big as you please. Also, if there j is a. Century Dictionary in Lehigh he will find the word there. So there! It IS a perfectly good word, albeit these eastern word experts seem to be trying to place it in the limbo of the erstwhile, as witness the latest editor of AVins- ton's.

The Dailies and the Farmers. Emmetsburg Reportei — Isn't it strange that newspapers which are the most industrious i trying to dig up something against Governor urner are the same ones that opposed him In le primary campaign? Check them up, and see ow true this is. Of course the big dailies patch igether the most complaints. And that for the eason they are making so much money that n income tax would take part of it. What do rotectors of tlieir own big incomes care about he farmers' tax worries? AVhich is a good ques- ion for anyone to ask himself when reading omplulnts against Governor Turner and his in- ome tax plan. Turner and tho lieutenant-Governor. Bob Sherwood in Parkersburg Eclipse — It ooks to the writer that the more the people now of Arch McFarlane, the less they think of iim. How he has gotten by for so long and ieen so well treated by the voters of Iowa is one lolitieal nut that is hard to crack. Governor Dan Turner deserves the sympathy of all Iowa or some of the men that the voters sent to DCS loines to help make laws. Ah! Then He Rim True to Form, Eh I Marshalltown T.-R.—As to Clifton and the Register the injustice of the attack on them over he road bill fuss is patent enough but like the oy who complained that he "hadn't done any- hing" when the teacher yanked him out there lave been things formerly that deserved the at- ention of the teacher. with more lucidity and force and effect In most cases one can get along nicely without clo- iny any infinitive splitting. But there are times when keeping the infinitive intact results in lumbering, awkward, unnatural, starch-fronted phraseology, and right there is the place to get ut one's verbalistic ax and start in on the job f bifurcation. — J. AA r . C. in the Rear Seat. • All that because one H. P. "called" J. AV. C. -ic having used the term "to correctly pro- ounce." AVhich, we don't think, would have een lumbering, awkward, unnatural, or starch routed had it been "to pronounce correctly." Ind, besides, even if there are exceptions, the ule remains, and the exceptions merely prove t. But what we should like to see is a valid ex- eption. Let J. W. C. shoot the next one he inds over to this here now Colyum. Never hav- ng seen one, we want a looksee. Baloney for tl|e Editors of Daily Newspapers [Swea.Cify Herald.] Mr. R. R. O'Brien, of-Council Bluffs, president of the Iowa Daily Press association, speaking jefore the editors of Iowa .in Des Moines last week, denounced Goxeijlpc'.Dan AV. Turner and Senator Smith W. Brookhart. 'The greatest advertising Iowa can do," Mr O'Brien is quoted as saying, "is to discover and support men for office who are capable politica timber and who wi}l aid rather than harm Iowa's future progress and prosperity." This gathering of 200 Iowa editors was supposed to be non-political. That the Counci Bluffs man's remarks were ill advised goes without saying. AVithout question a goodly porlion o: these editors are supporters of both Turner and Brookhart and are sincere in their views. Bu the real point is it will be a sad day when Iowa newspaper editors are no longer able to differ on questions of political leadership and policies Unconsciously, perhaps, Mr. O'Brien breathes reaction which ultimately would be far more harmful than either Turner or Brookhart. Furthermore, "the speaker charged the legis lature's defeat of the governor's plan to tax per sonal and corporation income has not checked the harmful effect the plan created as other states have 'gobbled up' the news and given i widespread publicity to injure Iowa's progress.' Unadulterated baloney! One gets just a littli tired of this repeated statement that Big Bus! ness will be frightened away from the state be cause of these tax laws. There is reason to be lieve newspapers who oppose these forms of tax atlon are more concerned about their own prof its than they are about the individual develop ment of Iowa. If Big Business can see profits in Iowa it wil establish manufacturing plants in Iowa corpor ation tax or no corporation tax. Besides afte witnessing the present disastrous breakdown o employment one might well hesitate awhile be fore he turns to Big Business for leadership in our material well being. This remark we mak advisedly because one executive of Big Busines is quoted as saying: "Ambition, stupidity, and greed have dictated business policies, and trou ble has been the result," , . Well, Ray, That's Pretty Hurd on Us Birds Who Catch Only Two. [Swea City Herald.] This is a trick—so don't say we didn't warn ou. Read this sentence; FEDERAL FUSES ARE THE RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS. Now, count the F's in that sentence. Only once—don't go back and count'them again. Elsewhere on this page you'll find the answer, and t will tell you something about how good your >rain is. There are six F's. An average intelligence recollects three. If you spotted four, you're above average. If you got five you can turn up your nose at most anybody. If you caught all six you're a genius and a lot too good to be wasting your time on foolishness like this. IF GEORGE GALLARNO, of Plain Talk, Pa Olson, of the Story City Herald, Jarney, of the Peterson Patriot, and H. Ward Barnes had been more observant they might have tripped us neatly the other week. AVe suspect that J. W. C. noticed it, but was too polite to say so. It remained for George H. Free to spring it, tout George, tender-hearted too, side-stepped an Invitation to contrive a stinging rebuke as a contribution. The fact is, we perpetrated "euc- comb" and couldn't be convinced of error till Webster had been consulted. How long that's been going on we can't undertake to say, but it must have been a fearful while. Ah, well, Homer also nodded!
