In another column on this page Is reprinted In part a speech made by Congressman Gllchrlst a short time •go In the house .of'representatives •which, stands out In contrast to Senator Brookhart's notion that the taxpayers of the nation should spend two billion • dollars' more for roads. The Tlcvt-8 of the two Iowa lawmakers are as far apart as the poles. Congressman Gllchrlst, mindful of a two, billion dollar deficit, brands the emergency blghway appropriation bill that would need- •tessly deplete further the government's treasury as "another raid," and says: "There Is only one way to retrench, and that Is to quit voting for new and additional appropriations. There Is only one way to amend the situation, and that Is to lop off subsidies. There Is only one way to economize, and that, Is to quit spending money. Tbere Is only oiie way to reduce taxation. There Is today In this country an awful and tragic need for retrenchment, because economic disaster stalks the land like a pestilence at noonday." It would be worth Senator Brookliart's while to read the speech. It might make him reconsider the Dill he offered that would raW the treasury for two billion dollars for roods that aren't needed, just so the senator could come back home nnd say he had done something during his last four years of office besides making chautauuna platform orations denouncing Wall street demons. Congressman Gllchrlst Isn't as colorful a figure as Senator Brookhart; he Isn't as splendid a poser. But Mr. Gllchrlst's expressions are far more lownn than those of the bombastic politician of the front pages. Wards In'the newspaper business, though >f. theifl cofh* outside the pay envelope. The tick'iest\ man .jn ,the world, 'however, "is no* th| man who is making the most money but the one hat>fite most perfectly into his Job—the onfe hat gets most satisfaction and'pleasure out of what «e Is doing tot a living —whether it be vrltlng 1 news stories, setting fractured limbs, rylng law cases, selling merchandise or bulld- rig dams." What far. Carey said In thle paragraph is in general as much, applicable to other ways of earning a living as to the newspaper business. First, there must be some aptitude on the part of any young man as regards any business he takes up. Secondly, If he is to make a success of It, he must put his heart and soul Into it. And thirdly, It Is unfortunately true that In any line of activity there is not much more -than a chance of marked success. The Important thing is to get Interested and stay interested In what one takes up for a living. This Is because such Interest makes for happiness, and after all happiness is the only worth-while goal In life. No mere pecuniary success can take the place of love of one's call- ins, whatever It may be. We commend Mr. Carey's philosophy not only to every young,man who Is now preparing tc embark on life for himself but to every parent or other adviser to whom application for advice is made. THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE BEFORE IOWA REPUBLICANS IN JUNE In Iowa this year, as elsewhere in the country, the voters are faced with a decision o£ major importance as regards leadership of the nation during the next four years. In Iowa we are further faced with the . mpmentous choice of a United States senator. Fortunately there is little question of the governor. The choice of other statehouse officials does not matter much, though R. B. Johnson, the state treasurer-who was arrested last summer for driving while in- and Auditor (Long should he kicked CAN LINDBERGH'S BABY SWING THE PENDULUM BACK AGAIN I , The almost unparalleled public sympathy ex tendedI '-to- ;the Lindberghs, following the finding of the mutilated body of their baby shows the extent to which the American public has accepted them as a symbol. Parents during the week since the baby wae kidnapped have on occasion been in the realm of fancy where the missing child was their very own, and have in part suffered the fears, hopes and despair experienced by the Lindberghs. The finding of the little body; Its life ham- meed out by a.sordid soul in sacrifice to the golden calf, sent a sharp shaft of fear for theii own child, In which agonizing moment parents found themselves in Llndy and Anne's place with all hope gone, and horror left. Perhaps Lindbergh, through the sacrifice of his first born, is again to etart the pendulum o: public sentiment backward. Lindy's flight to Paris his quiet marriage, and good sense ant judgment in the glare of pitiless publicity turned the pendulum from jazz, gin and license of the nineteen twenties toward modesty, quiet confidence, courage, and good manners. If the world turns from its practice of glorifying the gangster and the criminal, its habit o applauding the smart and clever lawyer's pleas enabling a depraved being to escape the penalty of his act, and of placing on a pedestal of coinage the beastliness, murder and vice typified by Al Capone, then the sacrifice of thle little liff will not be all in vain. The average American can be complacen about bootlegging, view the killing of gangsters as good riddance of bad rubbish, and gloss ove the affairs of rackets not directly affecting him but kidnaping and murder of a helpless infan should be too much for him to stomach. If the culprits are caught, vengeance will be taken— maybe by Judge (Lynch and his executioners, fo parenthood is thoroughly maddened. If Amer ica will only stay mad long enough to clean ou the whole crime cycle this infant of a few months will have done his bit for 'humanity. TheColyum Lct't Not ft* TIM. 5-d S*rk»«u Oakdale.

AMERICA promisingly with problem qiiency as one of the our' entire "crime" Topics of the Times toxicated, out. The only state office the bestowal of which cuts much figure is the lieutenant governorship, and this only because the lieutenant governor, chooses the personnel of the committees of the state senate. Through. this appointing power the lieutenant governor exercises an influence :<rf incalculable importance on state legislation; more influence indeed than the governor. This .Is because the lieutenant governor always names committees with an eye to what is to come before them. An unfriendly committee usually means the death of bills, no matter what their importance. It has always been difficult to make voters "understand how important it is to nominate and elect men for the lieutenant governtirship who -are in sympathy with what the people want. Lieutenant governors are not in the limelight in -anywhere near the degree that governors, U. S. -.senators, and congressmen are, though in a -quiet way they exercise an influence of Surpass- '•ing importance. The result is that, as a rule, about the only element of the electorate which •takes great interest in the lieutenant governor- ship'is the class which has axes to grind. In Iowa for the last two years we have been intensely interested in tax reduction and tax re- 'lorm. This means not only reduction of public expense but new methods of taxation designed to lift an Intolerable burden from property and make private income and intangibles bear their flue share. The movement for reduction o£ public expense has, under the initiative and the -.guidance of Governor Turner, made marked 'progress, but tax reform, meaning shifting of -the tax burden,.for which Governor Turner also •etands, has met selfishly Interested opposition which has so far prevented action. Whether this opposition is to be overcome depends largely on how the people vote on lieutenant governor in the coming primaries, for it will be the "lieutenant governor who will name the committees in the next state senate which will deal with their questions. Jn all likelihood the republican nominee for lieutenant governor will be elected next fall. tThus the choice for this important office is up to the republicans who vote at the June primaries. And the choice is limited to two men, one of whom has been and remains a strong advo- •cate of both income taxation and tax reform, -whereas the record of the other ifi, to say the "least, equivocal, unsatisfactory, and uncom- juromising. In the Advance's opinion the success or fail- Tire of the tax reform movement in Iowa depends on whom the republican voters name next month for lieutenant governor. If Senator dark, then the income tax will be adopted and -tax reform will be begun; if Bennett, then vthere will be no income tax and only camou- 'flage In lieu of tax reform. It is up to the re- rpiiblican voters to decide, and in the decision the republicans of Kossuth county must play "their due part, whom are we for and for what do we stand? Are we for Clark and tax reform, or are we for Bennett and camouflage? The Marshalltown T.-R. urges as a reason against supporting Clark for lieutenant governor that he could not obtain a place on the Linn county delegation to the recent republican state convention. Well, that was a tribute to Mr. Clark, if you ask us. Anybody whom the well known "Cedar Rapids gang" turns down must be a deep-dyed villain who takes the side of the people against the utilities and other "interests." There have been many atrocious crimes in history but the kidnaping and the apparently purposeless slaying of the Lindbergh baby ranks among the most heinous. Such a wave of horror as swept through the world Friday, when news of the finding of the 'body was given out, has never been seen before. You may not be for Senator Brookhart, but you have to admire his qualities as a fighter. Lack of courage is certainly not among his weaknesses. Indeed it is his fearlessness that wins for him much of his support. Most of us have within us a sporting instinct which draws us toward a brave battler, especially when he is backed up against the wall by a thirsty pack which lusts for his blood. General depression followed the war of 1812. Other major depressions occurred In 1837, 1857, 1873, 1S93, and 1920. We recovered from each of them and the country rose to new heights of prosperity. As surely as day follows night, we shall also in due time recover from this one. No sooner does one proposal for a'raid on»the U. S. treasury get the K. O. that another bobs up. Now it is $2,300,000,000 for unemployment relief; and, strangely enough, this one seems to have the support of the president. We are pass- Ing through a period which will afford a striking chapter in some future financial history of this country. AH, LET US BEWARE of women for the high office of mayor! Down at Broken Bow, Neb., a Mrs. Ownby is mayor, and recently ehe published the following-notice— "Some that owe the city give big parties, With cars lined up for half a block, tout can't or^won't pay their water bills..

"" Old Bill. Dear John: Clare was not the only Irish town wherein kegs of beer did not always arrive at their destinations. In the late 80s, during Iowa's independent sortie into prohibition, Emmetsburg, my home town, was well supplied with blind pigs. The officers made raids as now, and hauled the spoils to a building which stood at the rear of the municipal pumping station. My dad was the night city police force and custodian of the water supply, One night he accompanied a party of city and county officers on a raid. The illicit stock in trade was loaded on a dray wagon and taken to the usual place for safekeeping. On the journey it was necessary to pass through a dark alley, in which had been posted confederates outside the official party. Dad was in charge, of the rear guard on the back of the dray and, as the load passed the darkest spot in the alley, he rolled off a full- sized barrel of beer, which, was quickly taken in charge by the watchers and transported to a designated hangout. When the officers finished the business at hand, all repaired to the hangout to participate in an old-fashioned Dutch lunch, the other ingredients for which had been placed which in the eyes of our best minds, la one of the most Vital ot our national life.

Tarzan has dramatic punch, pictorial beauty and a capable cast of wild animals and tame humans. It now vies with Emma as the most popular'talkie on the silver screen of the country's movie theatres; if it is not yet a "classic," It is due to become one shortly and with an Inevitable result—we will be treated with a deluge of ape and caveman pictures which will rival the flood of ganster talkies of a few months ago. It was Rousseau who first tried to plumb the mysteries of nature with reference to the Human epe'cies; the popular appeal of "back to nature" pictures and stories might make an interesting chapter in psychological reactions — but that's another matter. When Jarie 'Parker (Maureen O 1 - SuYlivan) arrives in Africa, to visit her father, she becomes almost Immediately .a party to an elephant- tusk-hunting expedition during the "perils" of which ehe meets this strange ape-man Tarzan i taking his morning exercise swinging leisurely to and fro among the grape-vine trapeze with which his jungle home is literally cluttered.

Shot twice in the head, our noble hero' strangles' two lions and almost subdues the entire jungle, including native, wild beasts and last but not least, a vicious gorilla, Intent on murder.
