Everyone recalls that when NRA was ,n flower the general's language explosively picturesque, as became a har- boiled soldier. So it is interesting to find that as a columnist he is still a drill sergeant de gard to race or creed. With the lapse of time and the disappearance of personal interest, the annual appeajs of the Red Cross no longer stir us as they did in wartime. We need to go back to that perilous time for some recrudescence of the high emotion which then opened our pocketbooke and made us give cheerfully and generously even till it hurt. For the Red Cross is still engaged in it great human mission, for the relief of mas need wherever it exists. Only last winter when all of us were daily distressed to read o flood horrors In our own country, the Red Cross, as always, was on the job, relieving widespread misery and suffering. The money we gave then, and the money we had previously given in foil calls, served the highest purpose that money ever served since man Invented it as a medium of exchange. The Red Cross has sometimes been attacked on one ground or another, but never success- "ully. As an organization of fallible human be- sgs. it is remarkable for its singleness and 'idelity of purpose and performance.

Language in bold print that in the mid-Victorian age would have been considered "terrible"-that even now would instantly cut any radio speaker off the air. Regular Charles G. Dawes (another "Charlie" but no puppet) language, so to speak; only this time not of republican but of democratic parentage. Well, that's all there is to this editorial "heavy"—unless the reader wants to know why the general was "whaling hell" out of Jim and Charlie the "Mich." It was all because the higher up "demos" like Mr. Roosevelt, Justice Black, Mr. Farley and other righteous but much maligned gentlemen who don't like what the newspapers say about them have of late been taking revenge by playing up to radio and making out how much more reliable, etc., etc., it is—that is. they say it is—than the newspapers.

Congress is meeting again, and you can be on the lookout for a few battles with the president. The court fight last spring and summer wonderfully bucked up the courage of a great many gentlemen under the capitol's dome and tney do not intend to bow to White House or- aers henceforth unless they feel like it The thing may get as exciting for the people on the sidelines as a close football game. Let 'em go to it! That's what, every now and again saves the country. ' Most bonks, especially city bonks, have far too much of their assets invested in government bonds. Take the Northern Trust Co., Chicago, for example. In footings of ?332 000 000' no less than ?120,000,000 consists of government securities. Under conditions accompanying a slump of $10 or more on each $100 such as followed the World war a bank so overloaded with government securities might be hard put to it' to escape closing. Lots of newspaper talk now of LaGuardia for president—because he swept New York City for mayor again. But on what ticket could he run? Nominally he is a republican, and that probably cuts him off from consideration by New Dealers, though at heart he is practically one with them. And the republicans couldn't use him without sacrificing about every principle they have left. Editor W. W. Waymack, of the D. M. Register, answers every criticism of subsidies for farmers with the claim that they are entitled to the same as an offset to the high tariffs protecting manufacturers. Which is all well and good, but let it be remembered that the democrats now have the responsibility for the robber tariffs, for they have for five years been in a position to repeal them and haven't done a thing. Illustrating what strange quirks take place is the fact that the president and business have completely changed sides on balancing the budget. Mr. Roosevelt is now all'hot and bothered to get it done next year, while business, scared by the recent slump, wants some more pump-priming.

It is the perfect screen rama for our little actress, re- ilete with all the elements of popular demand with a liberal dose of adism, and just a little of religion, leart-ache, and almost every other human emotion. And how the characters do "emote." Shirley is the victim of much human skulduggery (?) but she rides over all obstacles with a smiling indifference and emerges from each - urated with hard liquor.

Swea City Herald—According to grapevine reports an undercover movement is getting under way among democrats to scuttle Senator buy Gillette, of Cherokee, not, if our understanding is correct, because lie opposed the president's court-packing plan, but because he lavors a farm bill moderate in its provisions.

Illustrating Again That Itrevlty is the Soul of >Vit. [Harrison in Oakland Acorn.] HereVs my idea of a really terse bit of musical criticism, snitched, via the Readers Digest, from a Detroit newspaper: "An amateur string quartet played Brahms here last evening.

HOLD 'EM, JfAVY!— This follows the usual pattern of football pictures — the gridiron hero, his jealous rival, the campus queen, and southern California football teams going through formations designed to thrill a football fan. Every fall the producers make a dozen or so football-campus pictures, and I sometimes wonder why. They are all the same. But, then, why do I go to see them? Maybe it's in the hope of some day seeing the hero lose the big game, instead of winning it with a sensational 80-yard touchdown run.

I would have liked both the pooch dog and Donald Duck in the series. But there is a movement .under way to make a set of five of the duck, and possibly the same of the dog; which would really be something. Walt Disney mirrors human life in the characters of his animals. Each charater portrays a human quality which is uncanny, therefore completely enjoyable. In The Tortoise and Hare, we have both the. braggart and the retiring "plugger," with all due honors going to the latter.

NKWSRKEL KOTEB— The newsreels continue to "rib" Japan for her undeclared war on China. In a recent Pa'the presentation this was done as subtlely but as satirically as possible, when the Japanese ambassador to the United btates was interviewed regardina the situation in the Far East This worthy gentleman explained in great seriousness that Japan was not interested in annexing or taking over any part of China; that she merely wanted peace and security In China. Then followed scenes of desolation and destruction as Japanese tanks and chine guns leveled towns auu Killed innocent non-combatants. The picture ended with the rather pointed question—"Does Japan really want peace"?
