Roosevelt's opposition to the supreme court was not based entirely on his urge to get his program through, nor was it simply because thp. court was "horse and buggy." Roosevelt "Some fool editor wants to start a beauty contest among newspaper men and has nominated the writer of this column for the number two booby prize.

Then carue the Ku Klux Klan expose, which undoubtedly has caused Roosevelt more political concern than any other factor of the entire battle. Mr. Roosevelt now has an opportunity. He can name a man in whom the country, the senate, and even his opponents have confidence. This does not mean he would have to name a Tory, a republican, or an economic royalist. A liberal would be acceptable on the high bench to everyone if his personal integrity was of such a nature that he could be trusted to use common horse-sense judgment and not be a "rubber stamp." And the senate has a duty to itself and the country to perform which it so sadly neglect- td in the Justice Black appointment. The senate can forget its foolishness about senatorial courtesy, and in performing its function of approving the nomination really investigate the candidate reasonably, carefully, and courteously.

When asked by Miss Powell who he is and what he is doing he replies, blandly, "I'm your dream soldier reporting for duty,." If this isn't tripe, then I'm a hassen-pfeffer. Attcnd Fnnernl at Mrs. E.

Dicknson has announced his candidacy for the iowa republican nomination for the United States senate next year. The senator is probably the most misunderstood man in Iowa politics today. He has been falsified by the New Dealers until a majority of the people believe that he is an enemy of agriculture. And yet everyone acquainted with political history knows that he was the prime factor back of the McNary-Haugen bills and other measures seeking to aid the farmers away back when the real old guard of the republican party had not yet waked up to the situation. ".Vellif, Why Do You Feur 3Ie?" Detroit Free Press: Where the Roosevell administration is concerned, business still is a good deal in the position of Nellie the Beautiful Cloak Model. For years Nellie had been hotly pursued by the villain. He had tried to shoot her. He had attempted to throw her over the cliff. He had tied her to a railroad track. He had locked her in a burning building. In several other ways he had left the impression that he was neither a friend nor a well-wisher. Finally one day he caught up with the girl on a lonely road, and with an anything but reassuring smile on his lips attempted to take her hand. Ae she shrank back: shivering and shaking, and praying desperately for aid, he exclaimed reproachfully, "Nellie, why do you fear me?" Valley Junction, la., Jan. 7, 1938. Dear Old Fossil: — What is the matter with you? There has not been a breath of life, a note of real interest, a touch nor sparkle of genuine color in your dunged old department for moons and moons and moons.
