Mr. Roosevelt as President and as a Party Head "fireside chat" In hia Friday night "fireside chat" Mr. Roosevelt said — As president of the United States I am not asking the voters of the country to vote for democrats next November as' opposed to republicans or members of any other party. Nor tun 1, as president, taking part in democratic primaries. As head of the democratic party, however, Charged with the responsibility of carrying out the definitely liberal declaration of principles set forth in the 1936 democratic platform, I feel that I have every right to speak In those few instances where there may be a clear Issue between candidates for a democratic nomination involving those principles. It, must have struck a good many listeners — or readers in next morning's papers — that in his references to himself as president anc as head of his party 'Mr. Roosevelt was indulging in the well known "distinction withou a difference." However that may be, there could be a lively debate over some of the implications of Mr. Roosevelt's remarks. No one, of course, could rjuestion his right to speak as a private citizen in any case. But he is not speaking as merely a citizen but as one who holds the presidential office, which carries -with it the party headship. It is that fact, and that only, which gives importance to his remarks. The nuestion arises, what authority does the headship of a party confer? The term "party" means a group of citizens -who believe in certain principles. The head the group elects is not the party, and the headship does not make him the- creator of the party's principles. The principles are adopted by the group as a whole. Any member may differ with the party head, as with any other member, and still remain a member of the party. The head of the party has no right to read out of it another member who happens to disagree with him on any question. Mr. Roosevelt assumes too much when he makes out, virtually, that it is his duty as head of his party to say which democratic Wherein We Claim Credit Only to Relinquish it The Mason City Globe-Gazette is the latest newspaper to credit the following paragraph to tho Christian Science Monitor— Nothing more sinister in corrupting effects on the electorate has ever been devised than pensions and other policies which habituate large number of the people to expect support from government. It is as true now as when Cleveland said It, thnt the people should support the government, not the government the people. It was a sorry day when the government abandoned that rugged principle. We've seen that clipping traveling around in the newspapers for the last two or three months,* always credited to the C. S. M., but by the Great Horned Spoon, if any Christian Science Monitor writer wrote it we have at last a provable case of telepathy. This is no weather to be hunting through interminable files to prove a point that one doesn't give a tinker's dam for anyhow, but we are ready to swear on The Book that the identical paragraph appeared months ago in this newspaper, and it wasn't plagiarized from the Christian Science Monitor either. We might cite some adages here, such as "Credit to whom credit is due," or "Great minds run in the same channel," but tut, tut, ,LIVER MOE has been an Algonian 43 years . . .

Welle confessed a loot of $4,000 or more. The total shortage was $43,000 and the bank suffered a loss of $18,000 after the benefit of $25,000 insurance carried as protection from dishonest employes.

Mr. Roosevelt speaks of the principles set forth in the 1936 democratic platform, but it is well known, despite all protestations, that nte test of loyalty to principles in 1938 bears no relation to that platform. The test Is whether the candidates he will oppose supported, his court-packing scheme — a scheme that burst upon both his party and the country months after the 1936 platform was written. Hide it as Washington may, that was the ;psue in the recent democratic senatorial contest in Iowa, and Mr. Roosevelt would have "spoken" in that case, as he now proposes to "speak" in presumably more complaisant territory elsewhere, if there had not been advance information that the attempt at a purge would result in humiliating disaster. lose the permit and be subjected to severe penalty besides. It is unfortunate that the only man the republicans have in sight who is big enough for the,-presidency is Hoover. The unreasoning prejudice aroused against him in the closing years of his presidency still exists and makes him unavailable as a candidate.

There may be sections of the country where it is necessary to make work, but are conditions in this county, or anywhere else in Iowa north of Des Moines, in that category? 'Can anyone who has lived, here a generation believe that the times here are now any worse than they have often been in the past? We have gone through like periods before, and we have always managed to clear them without government help. It is impossible to believe that we cannot still do so. Algoaa's paving was laid 25 years ago at the expense of adjoining property owners. This •writer has personal recollection that, with interest on deferred payments, it cost him some $600 to pave around his home corner lot. And the paving in front of, and along the side of, the Advance lot was painfully paid for out of his own pocket. Hundreds of other Algonians can tell like stories. What has come over this country.'anyhow, that the federal government has had to step in and subsidize all manner of local improvements? Can it be possible that the people be- preciate the interference from Washington in their own political affairs. Representatives and senators are elected by the people to voice their political views.

My quarrel with the producers today is directed specifically against such motion picture atrocities as Gold Diggers in Paris, one of the most conspicuous of the recent wash-outs. Here is an example of misplaced "everything"— talent, direction, pacing, mounting. I doubt if there is one person in a hundred who can say he enjoyed this picture. Starting on this premise, i. e. a picture on which there is a general agreement, as nearly as is possible in view of the human element, why will a company like Warner Brothers allow such unmitigated trash to come to the screen? If they did no more.than combine three or four musical "shorts"—including the Gold Digger chorus in'each,^ they' would certainly get infinitely better results than they 1 achieved when they undertook to weave a rambling, uninteresting plot into the musical' background.
