Maybe it can be done. This newspaper doesn't dispute it. The angle in which the Advance is interested isn't even mentioned in the Register's editorial. The idea is to get cheaper power. But if the Diesels turn out to be a success and fuel oil thereby comes to be widely used, how long will the oil remain cheap? Once we had cheap gas. The gas Itself is FEBRUARY 1933 S M T IV T.

The Advance has some obscure recollection of it, but the clipping Mr. Gillette received may have been going the rounds of the Iowa press for months and the comment may have originally appeared last summer after the.pair was announced and before the final vote. In any event the Advance is glad to publish Mr. Gillette's letter of correction as follows: — This letter is for the purpose of directing your attention to a paragraph which referred to my position on the president's supreme court proposal of Uust session. The paragraph states But ho reneged by pairing with an avowed advocate of the plan." I want to correct this statement. You are aware, of course, that it is an unwritten rule of the Senate not to refuse a request for a pair when a colleague, because of sickness, death, or other situation not to be anticipated, i.s prevented from being present for a vote and wishes to be recorded.

Just another o the hidden taxes that the people pay without knowing it and then wonder what makes the cost of living so high. If the people only knew how much altogether hidden taxes cost them there would be a reaction that would shake loose some of the tax-caters.

AVhat?— One of the chief slayers of last year's Roosevelt court-packing bill! Mr. Jaqua, were your ;Uisses on straight? Governor Kraschel urges the homestead tax exemption act as one of the reasons why he should be reelected, but says nothing about .he fact that the sales tax offsets it in the case of most homestead owners, nor does he refer to the shameful fact that the sales tax money of people unable to afford homesteads is confiscated for the benefit of a better-off class. A Washington private news-letter says government ownership of railroads is now "frankly discussed on all sides." Brethren, let us pray fervently that it may not come. In wartime the government demonstrated that it couldn't run the railroads without making a stinking moss of the job. Let us not again throw the country's vital transportation sys- cm into the greedy hands of the politicians. This newspaper is with the administration in plans for a navy strong enough to defend Americans and American possessions wherever they may be. It needs to be strong enough to cow the Mussolinis, the Hitlers, and the insane Japs into keeping the peace. The best advice another Roosevelt ever gave was, "Speak softly, but carry a big stick."

THE SERIES of letters from the w w South has been interrupted two weeks while I have struggled with one of the head and bronchial colds I went away to escape. I was gone only 17 days and traveled more than 3,000 miles. I wish now that I had stayed in that tourist camp east of Mobile among the soughing pines-. I had reached New Orleans at the close of my second letter, I had planned to spend a month there, but I stayed only four and a half days. I do not like cities, and I detest hotel life; so after I had seen what I went to see I felt an urge to move on. I do like travel in n strange country. New Orleans is an old, old city. The population is now something like 450,000—a good place to become lonely if you know nobody. The river flanks it on the west side, and the stream Is here something under a mile wide. The water is dirty, filled with the silt it brings and dumps into the gulf. One afternoon I went for an excursion ride on the river. The boat was an excursion steamer 287 feet long, and it had four decks, the first one a great dance hall. . There were not many on board that day. The 2% hour ride is for 30 miles around the harbor, and you pay $1.50. A lecturer speaks, and amplifiers carry his voice to every part of the boat. There was a cool wind, but the sun was shining, and one could be comfortable outside on any deck by keeping in the sun. An immediate mecca for all tourists is the old French quarter. This lies immediately off Canal street, which is two or three miles long and is the principal street of tho city. The street is perhaps a block wide and at night is a blaze of lights. It is rather singular, that ;n so large a city there is so little in the way of imposing business buildings off the one street. But there are thousands of ancient places, many with the original open balconies enclosed with lacy iron work which were in favor a century or more ago. The French quarter is a medley of such edifices, scores of them harking back to the days of pirates. You can delve into bloody history iiero to your heart's content. The stories told in books about the city's early history suggest tl'.at this is a dangerous spot in which to wan- ier at night, and indeed it does still look so, nit I was told that there is no special danger. But I wish to warn all husbands with an- ique-chasing wives to avoid this Vieux Carre Old Sejuare. It must be the worst trap in tho vorld for searchers after antiques. I didn't ount them, but I would wager a dollar against a penny that there are at least a hundred antique shops, every one literally jammed vilh the cast-offs that drive women crazy. I had been told to be sure to find a place vhere pecan waffles are served, and I did. It vas a hard-looking little shop on a corner, but looks don't count in the French quarter. flic lone waffle I ate was truly delicious. I vatched it made, and as far as I could see the atter was like what the women of the North U May Be "Hooey" But Sounds Like Sense Country Editor Who is Not, a,, Economist Gives Ills Views on U. S, Spending Spree [By E. 1'. Harrison In the Oakland Acorn.] tlcal economist. That is to say, we are hot "a student of the science that investigates the conditions and laws affecting the production, distribution, and consumption of wealth, or the material means of satisfying human desires," which is Webster's definition of a political economist. Likewise, we are always confused by big figures. We are not able to visualize the population of the United Statse—125,000,000 people. What a crowd that would be if they were all standing together and wo could see them from some vantage point! And then there is the matter of money. When we were a 'boy, a hundred dollars was a whale of a lot of "jack," and our mind has never strayed much beyond that figure. As wo have grown older we have become familiar with larger sums—a thousand, several thousands. With a little concentration we can grasp in a vague way the Idea of a million dollars —a thousand thousands! But a billion dollars is completely over our head. Some shark fit figures tells us that if we had spent a dollar every second since the birth of Christ, we'd just be getting nicely started on using it up. We haven't even tried to verify his statement. All we know is that a billion dollars must be a lot of money. '* * * Now, the federal government is said to have borrowed and spent, in excess of its income, some .17 or 18 billion dollars in the past five- years. That is to say, we, the 125,000,000 people, have borrowed and spent that much money. . Some of it has been spent for useful and necessary purposes— for the relief of distress, for the salvaging of homes and farms and sound business enterprises from wreck of financial collapse, for the building of needed public highways, and for other useful public improvements.. But a lot of it has been wasted —on $80.000 nostoffices in littte country towns, where adequate quarters could be rented for $30 a month, including heat and light; on electric power projects, which will never return a penny of the original investment; on 40-acre resettlement projects for Georgia on dams and »* °' "wo snoop around and attempt to tell us how to run our business and private affairs. And now that wo have reduced the tempo of our borrowing and spending, we are at a loss to know why we are not so prosperous as wo were when the spending was going at full blast, And to escape responsibility for present difficulties an attempt is made to place the blame on some unknown big, bad wolf, * * * We repeat that we are not a political economist and that we cannot grasp and comprehend big figures. But in the course of a lifetime we have picked up a few of the fundamental rules of political economy which, up to 1033, at least, were suppose to be in operation in that field. We also can use figures which our mind can grasp. And by applying those fundamental rules to the affairs of a small number of people we can reach our own conclusions as to probable results. For instance, let's suppose that five years ago the head of each family in Oakland had been able to go to the bank and borrow $5,000. Then proceeding on the theory that we could make ourselves prosperous by spending, all of us spent the money with reckless abandon, buying some necessities, of course, but at tho same time acquiring a lot of things we did not particularly neod and could not affird if we ever expected to get out of debt. Under such a course of action there is no doubt that Oakland would have been "prosperous." Somebody would have profited by our program of spending. Some merchants and professional men in Oakland undoubtedly would have accumulated fat bank accounts and would be clamoring for a continuance of the program of "the more abundant life." * * * But it now develops that each of us has spent his $5,000, and some practical "Before Roosevelt" souls Whv ' boy should have known would happen. The bottom drops out ot n our "prosperity." We said, we are right back where we started; but that is not tho case, for each of us now owes $5,000 at the bank. * * .* Still disclaiming any knowledge of political economy, we maintain that under President Roosevelt's New Deal policy of borrowing and spending the United States has now arrived at tho point outlined above. For figure back and forth as we will, we cannot escape the conclusion that a plan which will , Wnltslor , 'ntm-dionls. „ s|f » this or know As an ego can gram; "\Vo •' urn ,i ^ ""/"''I'loofJ 1 ' * '"' "Hod lh > WE and lam] ial ations. two courses are open to us- We can quit, borrowing, take off our coats, go to work, balance thn budget, and gradually pay off our debts, as we should have done in 1933. It will bo a long, hard grind and there will be much grumbling and complaining. Or we can start another five- year plan of borrowing and spending. The banks probably will be reluctant to lend us th'3 money, but they haven't much choice in the matter under prcsant conditions. They already have a good 25 per cent of their assets in government bonds (their assets, but our money), and are not in position to demand a showdown. For if they did insist on a' showdown, what would be the result? Why our whole financial structure would topple like a house of cards —and then we would all be right back where we started from, Including those who thought they were making some money during the period of manufactured prosperity. Out of the wreck somebody might be able to save a suit of brocaded silk pajamas or a fur- lined bathtub, but most of us would be thoroughly flattened out. * * * •But, as wo said in the beginning, the Acorn editor is not a political are suggesting that maybe we al-(economist. And even if he were, ready are badly enough in debt the foregoing argument is based and should be thinking about bal-' on a "Before Roosevelt" line of ancing our budgets instead of bor- j reasoning, and probably is all rowing and spending another hooey now.

Dan W.

Not only in stale but , n natiun growth O f bureaucracy has become alarming. Bureaucrats are never satisfied. Always they seek more pay and more power; The un- more power. They produce no wealth and to the extent that they are necessary they are leeches on .society. In the 1932 campaign Governor Roosevelt inveighed time and again, and justly, against the growth of bureaucracy under republican rule. He promised reform, but the result has been a sad disillusionment. Instead of reducing government personnel he has augmented it by hundreds of thousands. The two greatest governmental evils of the day, as this newspaper see it, are the centralization of government at Washington and the growth df bureaucracy in state and nation. If they are not halted they will eventually overthrow democratic government in this country.

To have entered the senatorial contest against Senator Gillette would have placed the governor in the very ungraceful position of dropping his own piece of pie •o try to despoil a friend of his piece. Ves, We're Still a Democracy. Belmond Independent — Democracy is still the American way of living. As long as the press can carry the bombast of a Johnson and tne pleading of a Broun, as long as a Roosevelt can laugh at the caricatured executive in "I'd Rather Be Right," as long as economic royalist and New Deal disciple can join in celebrating the birthday of the president together, democracy is still the American way of living. No Coaltails This Time. Plain Talk, Des Moines—Expecting the fight fur the governorship this year will be between Senator Wilson and Governor Kraschel as it was m 1!)3G, the republicans of the state will enter into the fray with courage and confidence. The governor will not have this year to draw on the great influence of a presidential candidate to carry the load for him and the campaign will be fought on state issues instead of along national lines. It Does Seem Somewhat Strange. Waverly Independent—Just after the election last fall there was gloating from high sources in Washington over the fact that the press had lost its power," as evidenced by general newspaper support for I^andon but a andshde victory for Roosevelt.

And he knows whereof he speaks, dal, which I did see. Under Suspicion keeps the audience as well as members of the cast, guessing about the identity of the murderer till the very end. In Night Club Scandal, the picture begins immediately after the first murder, and the audience knows that it is the doctor who murdered his wife. But the police don't know, when they are called in. Charles Bickford makes a convincing captain of detectives without too much astuteness. The. cross-fire between him and Lynnej Overman, the newspaper man, is guaranteed to keep you from get- minors or habitual drunkards. It does not seek to increase business at its stores by neon signs, window displays or general publicity, as is done in other states, and it does not reach out for new customers.

He learned that the dairy farmers there are working for a heavier strain, in order to get heavier producers. Another thing Mr. Rudnick discovered that he thought worth consideration by our farmers was that the skim milk there (of which the farmers are obliged to take back at least 10 per cent) was first artificially soured, with the result that there was less indigestion among stock.
