It may bo predicted that he will be highly successful as a college administrator. With regret at parting, with a feeling of genuine loss, but with the most cordial good will and the confident hope of high achievement, Algona sends Doctor Edge- to his new post and congratulates Dakota Wesleyan university on its good fortune. Timely Topics The COLYUM Let's Sot Ho Too D—d Serious. ••• • Archbishop Beckman on : the Constitution At a time when the Black appointment has directed attention again to Ku Klux Klan prin ciples it is highly interesting to road a lettci which Archbishop Beckman, of the Dubuque diocese, recently directed to his clergy ami fellow Catholics, calling for observance of the 150i.li anniversary of tho signing of the constitution. "Love of country" is a duty of Catholics, the archbishop said, and he pointed out that this w true "especially ln America, where tho church, persecuted olsewhoro, enjoys freedom from persecution." Therefore he enjoined upon Pastors due observance of the anniversary in both school and church. "Tho constitution is a masterpiece of wise and on lightened legislation and fully deserves the great tributes paid it by celebrated foreign thinkers and statesmen, such as Bryce and Gladstone, and De Tocoqueville," the letter rent on ,o say. U is - a sum of rights aud liberties gained in the past 2,000 years." The Catholics of the United States, the arch- Dishop declared, "ought to bo loyal to then- constitution as the nearest realization in the civil order of the Catholic ideal of the state as an engine and instrument of freedom and justice and democracy, as the obedient servant of the pooplo and expression of the popular will as the. means of promotion of progress and prosperity and opportunity." Rising to pulpit eloquence, the archbishop Pictures tho United States under the constitution us a country "of authority and liberty freedom and justice, democracy and civilization . . . The constitution is the temple of liberty, a fortress of freedom, a rock of righteousness, a judgment of justice." In conclusion tho letter significantly says:; The security of (ho constitution is the independent juclu-iary. Laws and con.stUuUons n-ec and just courts to declare them mere 'dead Among the expensive and unnecessary things taxpayers have to put up the money for is the "Bulletin of State Institutions"—long, dry pamphlets of papers read and remarks made at meetings of the state board of control with officials of the institutions. Probably not a hundred persons other than the officials concerned ever read them. Newspaper men ge them and toss them unopened into the ueares wustebasket. Senator Gillette, in his speech at the postof fice dedication, made a distinct hit. He spoke readily without notes and gave a talk that kep ) his audience interested. In speeches made elsewhere since the address he made'here he has made it plain that ho has not soft-pedaled his stand on court-packing. A senator with such a mind of his own is worth keeping on :he job. People old enough will remember that in the Jap-Russian war of 30-odd years ago American sympathy was heavily with tho Japs. Today sentiment in this country is decidedly against them, and it would be the same if the Japs vere again fighting Russia. Their ruthless course in China and their contemptuous disregard of protests by this and other nations has ost them the good opinion of the world. Already the new state unemployment com- nission has collected almost $5,000,000, it is of- icially announced. Iowa employers of eight or lore persons paid it; that is, they paid it in he first instance. In the long run it is their ustomers who must pay it. Thus, another lidden tax! Our guess is that Black will not resign; that 10 president will not ask him to resign, will not even call him on the carpet; that Black will take his scat; and that he will not be unseated. Mr. Roosevelt never admits a mistake, Mr. Black's record shows that he has too thick a skin to yield to universal attack, and effective legal grounds for impeachment do not exist. (This was written before the Black radio speech.) The current tour of the president doesn't look so good in a political way. There isn't the spontaneous fire, the overwhelming enthusiasm, the newspaper play-up of previous tours. Not a single first-page headline in either section of last week Sunday's Register for example. If, as has been surmised by many observers, the objective was to sound out the , people on a third term, Mr. Roosevelt is justified if ho now entertains misgivings. Every politician in due time gets to the point where he is an old story. Opinions of Editors The constitution comes to life and reality in the supreme court. To pack it is to destroy it ana the constitution. The constitution .stands now at the crisis of its career The issue is: The constitution or not; tho American free State or the absolute centralized, totalitarian, despotic, and slave State. To preserve the American free state you must organize in favor of its defenders- you must vote for them and against its enemies' Kternal vigilance is the price of liberty i he constitution is your priceless American mrtnnglu. Uo not. like the foolish Esau sell it for a mess of pottage. Preserve and defend lu It us worth it. Some Catholics who subscribe heartily to everything else in the letter may take exceptions to parts of this final quotation as touching on an issue in politics, but in so doing they will merely he exemplifying the fact that they arc., like tho rest of us, Americans, Catholics, as well <ts protestauts, are apt to resent it whenever religious advisers use the influence of their cloth to promote their personal views on purely political questions, and this is true even among such of us as agree with them. That, aside from the remarks just criticised, tho archbishop's letter expresses the attitude of all genuine Americans is beyond question, and no citizen or organization, hooded or otherwise, which would deny equal rights under the constitution to all is entitled to the term "genuine. American," no matter what he self- assumption may be as regards what constitutes genuine Americanism. Our Horse and Ituggy Delit.

Vnd when you consider the husbands one sees The lazy, the lean, and the fat, The flabby, the foolish, The mean and the mulish, You hardly can blame them at that! HEARTENING is a letter from George Galarno, whose editorials and "Confab" in Plain Talk, Des Moines, are read by all Iowa news- aper men. Plain Talk is just a little local paper, published mainly to run Polk county board proceedings and legal notices, but Mr. Gallarno 1ms made it one of the papers that editors grab for when it arrives in the mail. Mr. and Mrs. Gallarno are pretty well along in years, and for five years Mrs. Gallarno has had to have the constant and tender care of her devoted husband. They had planned this year to spend their summer vacation with a daughter in Wisconsin, but the day before they were to start Mrs. Gallarno fell and suffered a broken hip.

WHEN MAGGIE, Fort Dodge creamery company mare, became suddenly indisposed on her milk route, Al Loomis, who knows horses diagnosed her illness as sleeping sickness. He was shocked an hour later to learn Maggie had become a mother!—C. L. R.'s Old Home Town column in Fort Dodge Messenger. The Algona creamery uses a horse now,'but used to deliver in a truck, and when the first Austin seen here fell into line behind it an inebriated spectator yelled, "Hurrah!

And, like all his kind, when he got it he spent It. With that more than 14 million dollars Rcxford, who has quit the Roosevelts and gone into the molasses business, built 885 family unit homes in Greenbolt, the accepted name; Tugwell Town, the more common one. The cost, per home, or unit, figured $16,182. Each home was to bo rented to families with incomes of from $1,200 to $2,000 a year. The other day the farm security administration, which has taken over the resettlement administration, which built tho houses, announced the schedule of rentals for homes in M-mlllion dollar Tug- rent to come from the 885 family units (homes), 13 rural homes nnd farms, garages, storo buildings and motion picture theater nnd tho sums paid by tenants for water, lighting, electricity, etc. All homes are equipped with electric stoves, electric refrigerators, complete kitchen cabinets, and all of the most modern gadgets.

The average rental will bo $31.23 a month, including heat, water, etc. A private concern, or an individual would have to get at least $!)0 a month rent for a house Hint cost $16,000, and even then ho — ,,—1---.1 — • .•••••iivj u<m IM'l'll wasted.

Ki.se mid Fall of an Athlete. Anamosa Eureka—There was Jim Thorp probably tho greatest athlete the United States has over produced. He would be on anybody's all-time American football team, and he is the only man that ever won both the pentathlon and decathlon in the Olympic games and had ttemeduis pinned on his breast by the King of hweden. He is now carrying a hod for the Kyor l ompany, who arc building an addition to the Goodyear plant. As Dr. J. H. Edge Departs for a New Field Algona has lost three ministers within a few weeks. Father Davern left after 14 years here. Within the last week the Rev. R. M. Schwyhart, Baptist pastor, and Dr. Jos. II. Edge, Methodise pastor, have departed. Mr. Schwyhart had been hero only a year but had im- prestscd everyone as a devout and efficient pastor. Doctor Edge came to Algona three years ago. He had just finished six years of able service as superintendent of the Sheldon Methodist district. Now he has taken another and long step up the ladder, having been made president of the only Methodist college in South Dakota. Horn at Humboldt, Doctor Edge is a northwest Iowa product. His parents were deeply religious. His father, a successful farmer, gave freely to the church. Young Joseph learned Methodism in the home. He was ambitious, and he thirsted for an education. In due time he was graduated from Morningside college, which later conferred on him the degree of doctor of divinity. In his early years in the ministry the then young man served as Lu Verne pastor. As Methodist ministers do, he went from pastorate to pastorate, each a step up, till he reached the district superiutendency, in which he served the limit in years. After three years of close contact, Algona's estimate of Doctor Edge is of the highest. He live up to his religion; he is learned; he is able; te is energetic; he is a cultivated gentleman.

I hope you have not been misled by the fact that the Register prints my column without a Washington dateline. I have been writing from Washington for more than six weeks now, and I hope the Washington flavor is so emphatic that it needs no dateline Ihe Post is a great newspaper, and I am happy to be associated with it. Please remember me to Dick Sherman's father. No, indeed, the Colyum was not misled. That clipping appeared some weeks before the trek to Washington. An original Over the Coffee fan, this columnist never misses daily perusal of Mr. Miller's brilliant column and shares with him tho ardent hope that it will be as much of a hit in its new and broader field as it has been in Iowa. ARNOLD SANDERS was at the county Conservation day celebration recently, and found a pair of gloves belonging to Mrs. H. M. Olson Algona.

While Henry Wallace and many of lesser authorities have been predicting a ruinously low corn price, we think they have overlooked some factors at ths end. Whle supply and demand are and always will be the main price factors, the psychology of mass-thinking sometimes is quite a factor. The mass-thinking on the farms right now is that after two or three years of empty corn cribs, yellow ears in the cribs are going to look good to any farmer who has money, credit, and crib room. ANOTHER OF D. L. Leffert's belly-shaking Presociated dispatches in the Consolidated Flour Mills Co. house organ (published at Wichita, Kans., in Alf Landon's state)— Washington, Oct. 1—Postmaster-General James A. Farley today resigned to accept a $75,000 per year job as sales manager for Encyclopedia Britannica. Arrangements have bene made to secure the autographs of the President of Harvard, Dartmouth, and Yale universities, the King of England, the President of France, and Mae West. ALBERT EISELE'S FRAU is spending a month at the old home in Kentucky, and in his Blue Earth "Post Chaise" column he writes that a south wind filled the house with dust. Which is a. beautiful explanation, and let us hope that Mrs. Eisele, when she returns, falls for it, and doesn't think to ask whether the doors and windows had been left open when the same ought to have been shut tight. PA OLSON, of the Story City Herald, prints a story about fat men never getting rich and heads it, "A Lot of We Thins Don't Either." Which discourages us no end, after all these years of teaching, or trying to teach, Pa and others that it isn't cricket to follow a preposition with the personal nominative case. THIS COLYUMIST took a "shot" against a cold, two weeks ago, another last week, and is due for the third and last today—and has a What make you of that, Wat- But just what kind? Will Japan feel that the United States is discriminating against her, in showing these scenes of unbridled cruelty? Will this plunge us into international complications? These are mere speculations, important only in what may be their more serious and far-reaching consequences. To get back to the content of' the Pictures, their unmitigated ghastliness, can civilized people look upon such frightful scenes without becoming positively nauseated? Can we view wholesale death and destruction taking place before our very eyes without registering some kind of vigorous protest? Will not twenty centuries of Christianity •with its gospel of "good will towards men" comes to the rescue? These questions, and a thousand more, flash through the mind as one sits in a motion picture theater and views the scenes of this seemingly uncalled for war against innocent victims. Time (the newsmagazine) explains that the realis- ic pictures are due to the fact that the are de of interest in their constituents. A-B-C of the Court Question As E. P.
