Thus the youth will meet and learn to overcome the same conditions he will be faced with when he leaves college to begin his career. This Is pretty near the whole sum and substance of the Tunis side of the debate. He doesn't claim that Harvard is the only school, however; any school will do it if it is big enough for the process.

It .. _ O " . In a state where for several years.there has been wild extravagance in the cost of administering "relief" Mills county stands far front as the horrible example. In that county, in June, 1937, salaries paid to "relief workers" mounted to $42.20 for every $100 of relief money distributed. There it cost, In salaries alone, $4.22 to get $10 to one relief case! Tn Juno 31111s county Imd 80 cases. To those cases there was distributed $7!M).19. The snlnry cost for each case averaged $1.20 Of the cost the county paid $282.14, the state $53.08. The federal gov eminent paid nothing. It may he interesting to consider how long any private husiness would last if almost half of the money it took in and spent went out for salaries of those who managed it. While Mills county holds the state record for salary cost, ther,e are several others Jn Iowa that did well in such extravagance. Fremont county had 95 relief cases in June. To them It paid $1,655.83 and the salary cost was 29.89 per cent, $29.89 for each $100 distributed at a cost per case of $5.21. The June salary total in that county was $495. The average cost per case was the highest of any county in the state. Ringgold county was no piker either, wjien it came to paying money for salaries to get a small 1.15 cases in that month, the cost per case bfcing $3.63. In the larger counties, Polk, for Instance, the percentage cost is not so high, due to the "volume" of business. In that county, Juno's total salary cost was $12,493. The relief expenditure was $78,554.85; the cost for each $100 distributed, .$15.90; cases administered, 4,610. In 1'ottawattamle county, which reported .1,088 cases, the cost of the average case was $2,65; salaries cost for each $100 distributed, $13.44; total distributed, $21,496.39. Carroll county shines as an example of how it might bo done, though the salary cost there seems ample. The average salary per case in that county was $1.58. It cared for 320 cases at an expenditure ol $7,200.40, at the rate of 0.03 per cent. Tho salary cost was $500. The figures given here are official. They were compiled at the request of Governor Kraschel, by the state auditor's office. The governor is alert to the apparent fact that the cost of mainaintng relief offices In the state is all out of proportion, and he promises there will 30 reform.

Moreover, they are compelled to be efficient and economical by knowledge that if they are not there will be public complaint. If relief had from the start been administered wholly by local authorities the national budget might have been balanced long ago; at least it would have been a lot nearer balance than it is now. What ruined relief was that the politicians got hold of it. ft is no answer to this argument for relief by local authorities to say that there were, and still are, communities, and even states, financially unable to carry the burden. Public policy requires that in such cases help be granted from the outside, and there can be no valid objection to the imposlfion of safeguards to guarantee wise expenditure of the money. But that does not require a vast organization in Washington and another in the state capital. Let the money go direct to the local authorities under stated conditions and then H61d them strictly to account for it. A few auditors could see to that, and all the present waste in salaries and administration, as well as the politics and the private and puElic destruction of the American spirit of self-reliance, would b eliminated. ot for th • 6Xemi)tion business is pretty sou foi the homestead owners, but who can b tame tenants if they look upon it with teun° d.ced eyes?

Strange how law and justice are sometimes quite different things The city council has done a lot of good work on the streets this summer and is to be com* mended for it. Next year the program should include the paving of public automobile park- mgs alongside business buildings and homes We say again that this is needed in the interest of the public health as well as for other good reasons.

The slogan has been, "Grab while the grabbing is good!" The relief problem has been the excuse for the creation of a vast new bureaucracy which will never let go the public teat as long as it can hold on; and experience has shown that bureaucracies once established can hang on a long time. For bureaucrats, too, have votes and their relatives and friends have votes, and no politician will cross them if he can help it. From another standpoint they are a bloc on which politicians who cater to them can depend at election time. As Senator Glass has bluntly pointed out, the bureaucrats and the beneficiaries of relief, together with all others who had personally profited by the New Deal, carried the last election. The taxpayer rates so little nowadays that it may be supererogation (performance more than is required by duty) to mention him in this connection; but since he is the goose— and what a goose!—that lays the golden eggs it may be necessary, in the interest of continuity of his service, to drag him in. For billions are being taken from him to support bureaucrats and reliefers, and there is increasing danger that this and the other burdens heaped upon him by a mollycoddling government may render him sterile. (Let the reader pardon the metaphor which here assumes that a male lays eggs; it is no more cockeyed than most of the New Deal.) The truth is, always has been, and always will be, that relief is a local problem and can be administered without waste, yet adequately, only by local authorities. Relief cannot be standardized, for no two cases are in all rg- spects alike. No bureaucrat at Washington or Ties Moines can know the individual circumstances. The local authorities, on the contrary, are familiar with the situation from AN ADVERTISEMENT IN A recent numbe of the Sac Sun carried a bit of verse that al our fellow lowbrows can enjoy, it had evi dently been traveling around among printers a long time, for a syllable and three or fou words were missing; but a little tinkering re stored the meter, if not the original wording and here you have it- no one graveled parking raises dust wh'ich within reach can escape breathing. yeWal ] a( =es' Farmer prints an imaginary con- , n«, ~ —'-'" »*«-****fcv*i GDQ cL satellite on how to fool farmers and nnrtt ?"V r0m getti " S government help they ought to have.

In that county, for every .$100 spent for relief, $29.76 was appropriated for salaries. The county cared for 97 cases in June at a case cost of $4.41. The total distribution of relief money was $1 437 77 and the salary bill of those who doled it out was $428. In Audubon county the June salary cost was $417, or 17.69 per C f"L 0 /r the total rellef expenditure of $2,356.27. That county cared for each the amount paid in salaries is wholly unreasonable. for those <!1 counties the average cost per case was $2..1C, the percentage of salaries to relief 1JI.72, or $18.72 for each $100 distributed. That isn't all of It, not by any means. To those averages 10.84; direct relief expenditures were $10,760.08; and there wore 539 case-s. Comparisons are Interesting. There arc 38 counties In the state that run their own "relief" offices, asking no aid and taking no orders from federal or state bosses. Tho result of that Is that In those- counties the average salary per relief case was $1.76, or $1.29 loss pen case than In the bossed counties. Butler county Is tho shining example In that division. The average salary cost per case in that county was 60c; percentage of salaries to relief, 3.06. There wore 156 cases, and the distribution was $2,544.97. The total of the monthly salaries was $78.

The cost per case in Harrison county, in June, 1937, was $2.16; the percentage of salaries to relief, the home rule counties $91.32 went to those who actually needed the help. It wasn't an easy matter for the Hancock supervisors to fight against the state system. It was difficult to explain to Hancock county voters that what on the surface seemed a Santa Claus system was, when carefully examined, full of flaws and pitfalls. Many men and women with a superficial knowledge of the plan could not understand why the supervisors did not jump at the chance to get help from the state. What these men and women did not understand, and what the supervisors exerted much effort to learn, was that if the county accepted help from the state it had to relinquish all its rights and turn the job of relief administra- ion over to a costly crew of relief extravagance and waste. It is stated he plans to take a number of counties qff state aid rolls and let them go it alone. They should welcome that as an opportunity to run their own business as they best know how to, and to save money while doing it. But, likely, many of them will not welcome it. tion of the weak by the strong. That is a long and difficult course, but there is no substitute.

Register reprinted from The Rotariun in its Wednesday and Thursday issues. It had to do with a question privately debated in many homes this summer.- whether to send the boy or girl high school graduate to a big school or a little school. The debaters in The Rotarian were President Earl A. Roadman, of Morningside college and one John R. Tunis, author of "Was Collego Worth While?" Opinions may differ, but ours is that Doctor Roadman put up the better argument. Amusingly, he quoted Tunis himself incidentally in support of his stand. Roadman's argument was the better organized and could be followed easier by the- reader; Tunis was too diffusive and was hard to follow. You Xationnl Debt Still Going Up. Garner Leader—New borrowing to meet the rising cost of government increases the federal debt which the taxpayers must eventually pay to $281 for every man, woman, and child m the United States. This is in addition to state, county, and city debts, which the taxpayer is also called upon to pay. Although the country is paying the highest taxes in its history, they are not sufficient to meet the costs of government operation. Here's >Vhut Stalled Congress. Esthervllle Daily News—While the president has been blaming congress for failure to enact laws which he believes are popularly supported by the people, leaders of the rebels have said in plain terms that if anyone is to be blamed for congress not passing these important measures it is the president, who placed the court-packing bill, for which there was no public sympathy, ahead of the really important matters. has The Consumer 1'ays and Pays.

The write-up of the wedding was very lovely, especially the part about the darling daughter being united in "the holy bonds of matern- iiy.

But, Jo, who are these dodos who think That the Hancock county board of supervisors showed excellent judgment in refusing to accept the state-approved relief system was proved conclusively when the state virtually admitted its system had been a failure.
