Mr. Meyers is Strictly for Harmony Jos. J. Meyers, Carroll, one of four candidates against Gillette for the democratic senatorial nomination, "will have no part in a campaign of personalities." He says so himself. In the same April 25 release to the newspapers he dwelt on the disharmony between Wearin, another candidate, and Birmingham the democratic state chairman, who is reputedly for Gillette and frowns on the Wearin ambition. Mr. Meyers' statement adroitly publicizes this disharmony, thus, in effect, "egging it on," though he himself is all for harmony, as ie admits and affirms. In further proof of his determination to have no part in personalities, and of his urge for harmony, Mr. Meyers lets it be known that it is "reported" that Birmingham "has sold his support" to Gillette for a promise of .appointment as U. S. marshall (his own spelling) 01 to the Sioux City postmastership. If this bargain is a fact, then Mr. Meyer deplores it. Mr. Meyers is for harmony and he will have no part in a campaign of personalities. Oh, well, as Lafe Young said so many years years ago, "Politics is a great game." held to its established way. There are radicals in Iowa, as everywhere, but their number Is comparatively small. There Is no Indication at this time that Iowa would favor a new party to any greater extent than in the past. The democrats and the republicans will nominate candidates for the presidency In .1940, and these two old parties will divide In the customary way. If the new party gains any appreciable headway at all the only result, so far as the election is concerned, may be choice of the republican nominee. The presence of an aggressive third party in the campaign probably would influence the political programs of the old parties, however. Both would lean as far to the left as possible, and the conservative democratic element which^now threatens Roosevelt control In 1940 might be made impotent. If instead of uniting to form a probably futile new party the left-wingers in both of the old parties would organize and campaign efti- ciently to Influence the programs of the old parties they would be likely to get farther, nut of course the trouble with that idea is that it would not provide top jobs for ambitious left-wingers. Wesley's Protest Against Undue Auditing On this page is republished a. letter of the Wesley school board to the auditor of state at Des Moines which recently appeared in the Wesley News-World. The letter is a protes against the expense of an audit made by stati examiners. The protest is of interest in Algona because a. similar complaint exists here. Plenty o comment has been made privately in officia. or other circles, though nothing has been salt publicly. Examiners have been at work on the city's books for the last six or seven weeks, and It was thought two" weeks ago that the complete audit might take much more time. An audit of the county's books was recently completed by another set of examiners, and it is said to have taken twice as long as locally appointed examiners formerly took. The expense of the audits is charged to the municipalities involved, and the amounts have in recent years grown to sizeable proportions. There is no complaint regarding the auditors themselves. They are gentlemen, and they do only what they are told to do. It is the system that is in issue, and there is some ground for complaint that it is approaching a sort of "racket." It is not meant here to suggest that state audits should be abandoned. Even where nothing of importance is uncovered the fact that due audit will be made keeps straight some officials somewhere. But it might not be a bad 3dea if an audit were made to determine whether all the defalcations likely to occur in Iowa if there were no audits would equal the expense of the present system. In any event the system needs an airing, and it would be well if some legislator were to bring it up at Des Moines next winter. In fact the whole scheme of the upbuilding in recent years of a. state bureaucracy ought to be debated till the truth is brought out. According to statements current in the state press the number of state employes has growm from 2500 in Governor Turner's time, only (t few years ago, to 8600 at present. Such a growth, of iteelf, without any allegation of "racket," needs exploration. Without investigation the impression will grow that the idea 3s merely to provide political jobs at the expense of already harassed taxpayers. Ipwa and the Proposed Third Party A Madison, Wis., newspaper dispatch Friday quoted Gov. Philip P. La Follette as saying that "Iowa and California are his immediate objectives" in the campaign to organize a new "Progressive" party. This is not the first time that the La Fol- iettes have tried to take Iowa Into political camp. The elder La Follette made a similar attempt many years ago, but it did not succeed. Iowa has never responded to efforts to wean, the state from the two old parties. The Grangers, and after them the Populists, could not do it, and even in 1896, when leading democrats of the old school were as violently op- poeed to William Jennings Bryan as the most devoted republicans, an effort to draw Iowa jnto support of a gold standard democrat for the presidency failed miserably. In the country at large the elder La Fol- Jette, as a "Progressive" candidate for the presidency, once secured the sizeable vote of /something like five mil'lione, but he carried pnly his own state. Iowa, then republican, Timely Topics Hoover would scarcely be human if he were not somewhat sardonically looking on while Roosevelt struggles with a "recession" and loses control of his own party's overwhelming congressional majorities. It was the opposition, not his own party, that tied Hoover's hands. What a fall for Roosevelt, whose every word was law to devoted followers till one short year ago. Secretary Hull is recognized as an example of old school statesmanship at its best. He stands singularly aloof from the partisanships of the day. Under his guidance the state department has been conducted in accordance with the best traditions of American history. There may be controversy over his international bargaining program, but there is none e.t all over the man himself. These studio or street radio interviews on questions of the day are depressing, because they reveal surprising ignorance. On the reorganization bill, for example, an Omaha interviewer tried to get opinions but no one he tackled knew anything about it. Yet it had for weeks been first-paged in daily newspapers and had been discussed via radio. It seems to be lamentably true that most people can neither read nor listen understandingly to anything which demands thought. Now that Congress has, in effect, denied to the president the right to reorganize the executive department of the government it will be grossly neglectful of duty, and will justify the principal argument in favor of letting the president do it, namely, that it will not act itself, if It does not adopt its own program. For that reorganization is needed in the interest of both efficiency and economy is not questioned. The gypsies are at it again. One would think that in view of the publicity their thieving operations get, everybody would be on warning to keep them off Vith a 10-ft. pole but the warnings seem not to sink in, so some new pickpocketing theft is reported even now and then. And, again, why are these thieves usually let off without prosecution You hear every week of penitentiary terms for others, but can you recall hearing that gypsy has fared likewise? The COLYUM Let's Not Be Too D—d Serious, J IKE THAT SALT-RISING bread thing, this ~" Wilson limerick business will not do0n. From away down at Knoxville Editor W. J. Casey, veteran Express publisher, says he heard the president give the limerick at Des Moines in 1912 and on one or two later occas- sions. He adds that the version O. K.'d by tha Colyum seems to have been "whittled down" pretty accurately, except that he would begin the first line with "For beauty" instead of "As a beauty." But that wouldn't do, for it wouid make the line short a foot, an error which Wilson would never have tolerated. The version submitted by Mrs. Giddings, of Wesley, and temporarily lost, has turned up, and it illustrates the same objection— For beauty I am not a star, There are others more handsome by far— But Mrs. G. thinks it doesn't matter and refers to Webster's, yet in the example there given there is no variation. Then there is the version which Mrs. W. W. Sullivan, Algona, often heard her father, Daniel Kelly, the late Emmetsburg lawyer,' repeat— In beauty I'm far from a star, 'Most people are handsomer, far; My face I don't mind it, For I am behind it— • It's the people in front that I jar. Mrs. S. says that at least this one scans, but let her lay that last line over either 1 or 2 and report. And, another thing, would the precise Wilson have used word "far"' in the same construction so close together? Well, for the wind-up let's try a composite— In beauty I am not a great star, There are others more handsome by far; My face, I don't mind it, For I am behind it, It's the people in front that I jar. Opinions of Editors Proving; Tovnsend IVas Right Knoxville Express—What a farcical proceeding that contempt case in Washington against Old Doc Townsend! Whatever contempt the old doctor expressed or Indicated for that congressional committee was probably well taken, in view of the silly way in which It has been followed up. That Peter and Paul Scheme. Knoxville Journal—The price of hogs and other farm produce seems to skid to unprofitable levels even as in the days of Hoover. Meanwhile Wallace weeps over the sad fate of wheat and cotton producers and offers the lat- .«r great hunks of corn acres at the expense of Iowa. Sure it's a greet game, but mighty punishin' at times. Promises vs. Performance. Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune—For an adminis- .ration that promised to cut down the bureaus and reduce the state payroll the present democratic battalion Is entitled to the hand-painted Jicycle ... We read officially that since July 1, 1936, the state has added 700 new em- pioyes . . . [which] brings the total [of state employes] up to 8624 ... a pretty fair-sized :roup to live off the taxpayers. How Iowa Taxes Have Mounted. Maquoketa Community Press — Iowa people are paying just a trifle over twice as much in, state taxes now as they did four years ago. Don't believe it? Ask State Treasurer Leo J. Wegman. He has the information all printed n nice form and will send It to you if you ask. The jump up is from $84,000,000 in 1933 to $190,000,000 in 1937. Some of this is liquor tax money, some Is unemployment compensation and sales taxes, etc. TVhy Corn Loans are Few. Webster City Freeman—Corn loans have not >een resorted to this year to the extent that he first loan was. There is a good reason for his. When the first loan of 45 cents a bushel was made, corn was worth less than half the amount that could be borrowed, while this year and the closing months of last year there vas not much difference in what the corn could be sold for and the amount the farmer could borrow on it. Everybody is a Bit Partisan. Story City Herald—Editor Campbell, of the Jewell Record, thinks editors and lawyers are he most violently partisan of any class of leople. It may look that way, for the reason .hat these men are usually in positions where hey are forced more or less to "take sides." f the Record will look around in its own >ailiwick he will find—Just as any editor can 'ind—that there are men and women all around him who are pretty well glued to their party emblems. Yes, Indeed^-Style HAS Changed. Northwood Anchor — Maren Elwood, who conducts a class in short story writing in Los Angeles, announces: "Styles in writing change almost as rapidly as styles in women's hata. I dp not teach my students to write as the great masters of the past wrote., I teach them to write the sort of literary material that is be- ng published today." Anybody who reads will jet the significance of that. The ''literary »#• erial" that is being published today is cer* tainly not the sort of writing the old master? would have done. ARE THERE OTHER now aging parents, particularly mothers, who recall with misting eyes the heartache wrought by realization that babyhood was over on the first day of school? Or mothers overcome by tears when the boy's curls were ruthlessly snipped off? Well, maybe the heartache, though tenderly reminiscent, will for a moment return, and not be unwelcome, as they read this bit of verse from the Webster City Freeman— Just yesterday the floor was strewn with lots of shabby toys; You know exactly how it looked, If you've reared girls or boys. But oh—the toys are gone today, and everything's so neat; I miss those playthings and the sound of busy •little feet; long to see two eyes which watched me constantly five years; yearn for bubbly laughs and lisps; my eyes are wet with tears. Have others known such loneliness, or am I just a fool? Does each wee tot break some one's heart the days it stars to school T —LYLA MYERS. OLD GEORGE GALLARNO, of Plain Talk, Des Moines, has appealed to the Colyum for one of its fur-lined medals [etc.]—The Col- yum. On reading which George bestrode his Pegasus, with the following startling result— Old George Gallarno? Say, Dewel, get rid Of that idea. Why, I'm just a kid! Tho%gh cycles of years may say 79, That's nothing, Old Topper, when one's feeling fine. To some, though, at 40 the world may seem weighty, To others like me life begins, sir, at 80. Consider this maxim—it's old, but it's sage It's how a man feels that tells us his age. And, I feel swell—or at least I would If the old carburetor was still working good. And, drat that pain that draws out the groans; It's the derned rheumatiz that's got in my bones. It's that "crick in my back" that makes me sputter and scoM, And, oh, darn, what's the use? If course I am old.* *But I have young ideas. NOW THAT A LIMERICK has suddenly achieved Colyum importance, Rose, who is self-effacing as regards 'publicity, and whose family name may, therefore, be quite something else, sends one she found in her S. S. magazine— An eloping young couple from Sydenham Found that father had strictly forbydenham. But the young lady knew, That he dare not pursue— For she'd pinched all his trousers and hyden- ham! Rose adds that by inference the jingle teaches the correct pronunciation of "Sydenham," and via ditto Sherlock Holmeslng we deduce that the limerick is English and that the cokney version of "ham" is "em." THE JOURNAL-REPORTER, of Leon, south of Des Moines, avers the veracious Chords & Discords column in the Northwood Anchor, tells about one of those embarrassing moments of life. Man presented a $20 money order for payment at the post office. The clerk was not acquainted with him and said: "You'll have to get someone to identify you. Don't you know someone here in. town?" The stranger said: "Yes, I know one man who could Identify me, but, darn it, I owe him ,$20!" IT IS REPORTED tha* even the hardrboiled colyumists grinned when someone sprang this one at their meeting at the recent etate press association— ' A housewife at Marengo, when her order for meat failed to show up on the first delivery, called her grocer to determine the difficulty. "Our butcher backed into the meat slicer," said the grocer, "and got a little behind in his orders." IN CASE THE party drags and threatens to become dull, you might provide the guests with paper and pencil and then ask them to write the following sentence as a spelling exercise— Outside a cemetery sat a harassed cobbler and an embarrassed oculist, picnicking on a desiccated apple and gazing at the symmetry of a lady's .-nkle with unparalleled ecstasy.

It was just some Register linotypist's idea. —ALIEN. Wesley's Protest Against Over*Auditing School Board" SayB It Will Refuse to Pay Bills for Audi tors Who Scanned the Books The two auditors or checkers sent out by your department have spent four or five days checking over all the books, records, bills, bonds, etc., of this small school district and we believe they now consider such work finished for the time being. We strenuously object to such audits being made in such a small school district as we have. This small school district has not made a general fund levy of over $5,000 for the past four years, and as low as $3500, and we do not have any outstanding with this in indebtedness; and mind we feel as though this board of directors and its officers have always been capable of running our school and the 'affairs at our district without having an auditor or two come out to tell us what can be done and what cannot be done. Hoard Itself Checks. After all, we believe you find that everything has been' capably managed, and we still feel we can go on for many years more without the advice of any auditor being sent out by the state department. What little advice or Information such auditor can give will not offset the cost of expense In general. Now as to the books and records of .our secretary and , treasurer, both having served over 20 years in this district. These boqks are all checked over by our board, every bill has passed upon, "been audited and none are and paid without the o. k. of the board of directors. Financial Statements Published. All receipts 'and disbursements are carefully checked by the board of directors, who are elected by the voters and have duly qualified by oath of office, and we positively do not approve of having further audits made. It is unnecessary expense. We publish financial statements of our school district, and we alao publish budget estimates, all at the expense of the district, so our taxpayers or public are well informed as to what we are doing. What more is necessary? Although we admit that perhaps we are not operating 100 per cent perfect, we believe you will also admit that no department does. We are doing the best we can, and that Is all that can be expected, and no matter how many auditors you send out here will not help this any. Won't Pny for Audit. No doubt, In the near future, we will receive a' report or statement from your department giving a lot of Information that we, as well as the taxpayers of this small school district, have known for several years, and such report perhaps will contain a lot of repetition of figures and facts that we are thoroughly familiar with. This Is also unnecessary. This school district has spen over $40 this last year publishing financial statement and budget es tlmate so that the taxpayers an< public in general have received al' the information required by law. If we are presented with a state ment of expense in connectloi with the audit which you have jus made, we will refuse to pay it, as we deem it unnecessary and im practical in a small school distric like this.

BLUEBEARD'S EIGHTH WIFE— Notwithstanding moments of supreme fun-making, dashes of original humor and long stretches of sustained comedy tecnique — this production somehow misses fire and I think Director Ernest Lubitsch laid his first egg. AJways a master of -the finesse, which is ver screen. Myrna Loy, wistful and coy as ever, adds to her laurels with a completely compelling performance of the wife of a test pilot—a job which requires both tact, patience, and a vast amount of faith. Miss Loy handles her dramatic scenes with effectiveness while her less tragic moments show her usual flair for subtle repartee.

The production certainly starts out snap-pily, when we see Gary "uppers" of the pajama in a large department store. Just when things have reached a difficult situation, Claudette Colbert arrives to buy the "lowers"—thereby facilitating the problem—in fact, reducing it to a complete solution. So far, so good. The picture gathers speed in a very funny "sleep-Inducing" scene, wherein Claudette tells Gary of a method of curing Insomnia by attempting to spell difficult words backwards. From this point on, however, complications arise and are so prolonged and involved that interest lags and I thing Mr. Luibitsch has definitely spoiled the entire effect of his excellent beginning. Miss Colbert is Cooper's eighth wife and her main object in the picture, seems to <be to make it his last attempt at matrimony. I think she succeeds-because she certainly has the young man. guessing, and this, I opine,-is one of the main essentials of a successful and happy marriage, that there is a bit of uncertainty, a constant effort to please arid understand. I think the picture could have been made more enjoyaible if many of the scenes had (been cut, thereby shortening the entire production. It is much too long, air though I will have to admit this— that just when interest lags. -Director liUbitsch has introduced some original twist in the plot which peps up the action and brings the desired results of quickening action. TEST PILOT— Test pilot is the gripping story of the hazards of the most dangerous peacetime job in the world. Woven into the thrilling events which comprise a test pilot's dally activities, Is a romance of such unusual reality and tenderness that from almost any angle, this, will unquestionably ibe one of the ten best of 1938 on every critic's list. We have had many air-pictures before—and good ones too—tout we have never witnessed a. more poignant • performance than .the .one which a, trio of stars, directed with infinite skill and understanding, has given us in this super-spectacle of the air. Clark Ga'ble, in the role of the hero, scores his most effective role and combines the carefree -bravado of the world's most dangerous profession with the tenderness of that fragile thing we call love, here raised to new heights on the sil- But the really important consideration in connection with this i picture is that it gives a truthful portrayal of the life of a test pilot. These daredevils of the clouds take their lives into their hands every time they make a flight be•cause their job is to test planes— soar them into the air and there attempt to 'break them to .pieces. If they succeed, they must jump for their lives, trusting in the effectiveness of their parachutes; if the plane proves equal to the gruelling tests, they have won only an inglorious triumph, important to the interests of aviation but unimportant to the world at large. It is little wonder that the 100 odd test .pilots in the United States (young men \between the ages of 20 and 30) lead carefree, haphazard lives—living day iby day— thinking little of the morrow which may snuff out their early existence in the flash of a split-second. It is little wonder that these daring-pioneers in the art of flying take time-off'to play .on terra firma— play as hard on the ground as they labor in the skies. Test Pilot drips with romance— romance which out-romances the story ibooks. Clark Gable drops from the Kansas skies to play the part of a Prince Charming to a simple rural girl (Myrna Loy) and kindles in her heart the flame of love which never dies. And there is the romance which the intrepid pilot feels for the "girl of the blue dress" (the sky)—en almost pathetic illusion, which lures them into the clouds in much the same tragic fashion that the Lorelie lured the sailors to the treacherous rocks of destruction. Photography is superb, while direction shows a restraint which is unusual in a theme which might get out of control and come crash- Ing around the director's head. Test Pilot is a great show and seems to appeal to masculine and feminine tastes alike. In this, perhaps, lies Its greatness. QUERY: DO WE GET OUR MONEY'S WORTH I [Pipestone, Minn., Leader.] This is the time of year when Mlnnesotans and residents of every other state in the Union save Nevada and Nebraska realize how troublesome are taxes, and how costly. The business official, big or little, who doesn't have to make out at least .half a doz,en .tax returns during the present month, is fortunate indeed. And there's no good reason for believing that his work will be any lees arduous a year from this time. ,When We Kicked Out Dan Turner [Webster City Freeman.] The Oelwein Register, noting that Nebraska has no bonded in debtedness and has lower taxef than Iowa, no sales taxes, etc. wonders why it is, and comments There is no reason in the worlc why we cannot do it. lowans an just as capable as Nebraskans in this. The big trouble, as we se* it, is that we inject too much par tisan politics in our state affain and elect a man as governor whi plays politics all the time instead of aiding the voters and tuxpayers of the state." It causes the Freeman to smile to read such preachments from our esteemed contemporary up a Oelwein. We did, once upon time, and the only time in many years, elect a governor who serve' the taxpayers well. Under hi leadership taxes were reduced by more than $20,000,000. But wher this man, a republican named Dan Turner, was up for re-election the Oelwein Register opposed him and the people of the state were foolish enough to defeat him. ANOTHER HIDDEN TAX IS DISCOVERED. [From Anamosa Eureka.] The annual report of the Amer lean Telephone & Telegraph Co for 1937 shows interesting facts There were at the end of the yea approximately 19,380,000 tele phones In the United States, on for every seven persons, contrast ed with one for every 40 in E£ ope. The Bell System (as this com pany is known-in'Iowa) has had continued increase in taxes undo the New Deal, and the total taxe paid amounted to $137,600,000 h 1937, or $20,800,000 over that paic in 1936. Taxes in 1936 were $22, 300,000 greater than in 1935. Thu in two years there has been an in crease, of $43,100,000 in taxes, or 4 per cent. Taxes in 1937 were equa to $9.21 a telephone in service, o $525 an employe, 'Here is a hidden tax that few pepole know anything about. Thi is not the sales tax, but a tax you pay when you pay your telephon bill each month. In other words if it were not for taxes your tele phone bill would be $9.21 less pe year for each telephone on the av erage. PREACHING VS.

They were unwittingly but unsparingly used. Of Mr. Roosevelt it may he said that he means well but acts erratically.
