Many famous nrtists have painted these The 1932 poster of the American Red Cross Roll Call for members. posters. s Usually they center about the figure of a Red Cross nurse, which carries sentimental recollections of her. service during the war, and of her service in disasters in peace-time, as well as in the paths of public health. The poster this year is a timely reminder that the Red Cross needs help, if it is to carry on helping others. Every one who joins as a member of the Red Cross chapter in his community will be helping to help the needy.

' ' The basis of business confidence is faith in the stability of government and the soundness of its currency. ' Fortunately that faith is justified by the record of the national administration. President Hoover's unswerving insistence upon balancing the budget and protecting the gold standard have convinced the world of tlie ability and determination of -this country to pay its obligations in gold. As a consequence of this conviction gold is again flowing back to America and the confidence of private capital is returning. As it began to be certain that the whole credit structure of the country was not going to blow up men began to invest In stocks and bonds which had been .reduced to absurdly low values.

Confidence Is being restored but it needs time to spread to all our peo- ile. . Many indications of reviving business are observable.

O'Connor, Iowa City law yer, democratic nominee for state attorney general, once schools superintendent at Bunt, was arrestet at J)es Molnes last week Tuesday charged with drunk driving and possession of liquor. The drunk driving charge was dismissed, but •he was bound over to the Polk county grand jury on the possession charge. * whole state if Patterson were defeated, he declared. The state needs men of his character, and backbone to stand up for the common people and have brains enough not to be ensnared by lobbyists at Des Moines. Mr. Turner also asked election of C. P. Clark, co-worker with Patterson, as lieutenant-governor. Referring to the "cow war," Governor Turner said, "I enforced the law, and I will continue to do so all the time I am governor." Mr. Turner said that he had conferred with leaders in the cow war six months. He said the opposition statement that two deputy sheriffs could have handled the situation, was, ridiculous. The JactS'were that 65 special deputy' sheriffs had been unable to get .anywhere and that the only thing, that'saved the situation was the militia. ' ' ;•• - ''"' '; ' , Condemns Dishonesty. Governor Turner said ;that he was being criticised by Auditor J. W. Long for the latter's removal from office. Mr. Turner replied that Mr. Long had been found dishonest in office, having converted $5,000 of the taxpayers' money to his own use. 'It is not true that there Is fraud and corruption in other offices, as charged by. Long. M I M l .

Again, unfilled orders 'or steel increased during -August, he first Increase recorded in 17 months. Commodity prices, grain, cotton, livestock, copper, rubber, etc. are sharply up from their low point. . All these .things point with certainty to the fact that the economic condition of the country is mproving and that hope Is once more justified. The Reconstruction Finance Corporation is functioning with remarkable efficiency with the result that bank' failures have shrunk to ' the lowest point In two years. The Home Loan banks are being rapidly organized as; are ••the. Livestock Credit associations and the steady pressure of Mr. Hoover and the national administration In support of the credit structure Is producing tangible results. AVe are winning the fight all along the line. The backbone of the .depression has been broken. AVhat we now need Is to sit steady, and avoid rocking the boat. Hard work and close attention to business will pay big dividends now as always. WANTED—POSITION AS HOUSE-' keeper in good home. — Call Advance. .'9j>7-8 WANTED—25 HEAD HORSES OR mules to pasture.
