But there Is nothing surprising about this. This Is not the first time this country has had costly experience with the pension business. The same thread runs through all pension history throughout the world. Pensioners never get enough. Pensioners will stoop to anything to get on the pension list. Pensioners soon claim as a right what was originally granted as a privilege. Pensioners will resort to politics to attain their ends, and politicians will listen. The politicians are listening now. The Register's story tells the tale. In Florida Senator Pepper, to obtain renomination, pledged support to the Townsend plan. So did Senator Thomas in Oklahoma. "Many New Deal candidates are committed to various versions of the old age pension plan championed by Dr. Francis E. Townsend," says the Register's correspondent. The successful candidate for governor of Texas promised $30 a month pension to everyone over 65. In Colorado Senator Adams, opposed to more pension money, won in the primaries,'but is threatened with an independent Townsend candidacy. In the same state a constitutional amendment provides for a $45 a month pension, but something all pensioners overlook happened. Somebody has to put up the money for pensions, and sometimes the well runs dry. It ran dry in Colorado at $3-1 a month. ' Political campaigns in a half dozen states have directly involved the question of additional pensions, says the Register's story; a logical outcome of the pension business. People willing to live on others always vote for candidates who will cater to them.

But the governor may find h B; a , lnls sl "Jct» this . ' racket" Mr. Roosevelt and the Third Term Issue Every now and then the question arises, Will President Roosevelt run for a third term? It is again under newspaper discussion now. Some observers feel sure that he intends to run; others, that he will not run. Mr. Roosevelt himself is saying nothing. He has never said anything definite. However, two statements have seemed to indicate that he has expected to retire at the end of his second term. In a magazine article a year ago he was reported as saying: On January 20, 1941, when a new president takes over, I will be in Hyde Park having the time of my life. The other statement was made at the democratic Victory dinner last year. He then said: (My great ambition, on January 20, 1941, is to turn over the desk and chair in the White House to my successor, whoever he may be, with the assurance that I am at the same time turning over to Mm as president a nation intact. 1 do not want to leave it to my successor in which Buchanan left it to Lincoln. _._ A . These statements are, of course, in no way'I permitted to go? If in a big establishment, l-itrhi- nnt in n omeill r>np Hip AI^OTISI ICfi Cream binding, and Mr. Roosevelt would not be violating his word if he ran again. Whether Mr. Roosevelt's intention in this country is due for ultimate explosion. The time will come in the nation, as it already has in Colorado, when the well will run dry. Man must still earn a living by the sweat of his brow. That means every man, not just a few on whom the rest live. Timely Topics How far is this Jay Franklin theory that strikers have an interest in the property of their employers which justifies sitdowns to be has changed since the statements were made, or whether he will later change his mind, are at this time 'objects of speculation. Apparently no one but Mr. Roosevelt himself knows whether he has already changed, and even he cannot be sure of the future. There is nothing strange about the fact that Mr. Roosevelt keeps his own counsel. Any ^president is wise to maintain silence as long as possible. Premature announcement would •probably wreck his leadership during the rest of his stay in office. For this reason presidents have habitually delayed such announcements till the last minute. Belief that the president why not in a small one—the Algona Ice Cream & Candy Factory, for example, or the Norton machine works,, or the Advance shop? Or, you larmers, right on your farms'. .If the theory is good, is there any stopping place—or any private property any more? Governor Kraschel is undoubtedly keeping one eye on this fall's election, as he develops his Newtoa policy. But of course Candidate Wilson is doing so too—and wondering wha criticism will win votes without alienating la bor. As a distinguished lowan once said "Politics is a great game." Remember Mm Oldtlmers will.

The charge is 'based on the average sickness-expectari'cy of the group. The A. M.

In effect he flouts .Pudge Homer A. Fuller's orders and nails' out the national guard of this state- to keep the Maytag factory at Newton closed. It will be remembered that early last week approx:- Imately 500 employes of the company went back to work under court protection. The next day the' governor called out the national! guard and sent the soldiers to Newton, not to protect the Maytag company in its right to operate peacefully but to prevent the plant from remaining open. As reported in the public prints Thursday morning the governor stated that the Maytag plant will remain closed until the union and the company "get together." He said: "That's the one thing about this hing that's certain." Asked If he would consider usng: the soldiers to help open the jlant again and protect those who urant to work, Kraschel said: 'Absolutely not." The governor also ordered that all strikers be immediately placed wra the relief rolls. Here are men fact wou ia ha ve to count fingers, New Deal become settled national policy.

All the more reason, perhaps, why a Roosevelt should attempt it. The question is, whether Mr. Roosevelt would decide on this basis or on what he considered the sound Interests of the nation. Grant tried for a non-consecutive third term and lost. So did T. R. When there was talk of a third term for Coolidge—who served only 6% years altogether—the Senate adopted a LaFollette resolution against third terms and nine present New Deal senators supported it, including Barkley, of Kentucky, Ashurst, oi Arizona, McKellar, of Tennessee, Pittman, of Nevada, Thomas, of Oklahoma, and Wagier, of New York, all pretty much rubber stamp- ers. ___ in the situation there, which was to give Jie two sides a quiet opportunity to do a little thinking towards settlement of. the strike issues. But the order was also delightfully worth while for quite another reason, namely, that it showed that a state can still do a lit- tie ordering around when a federal official is jutting in. Slow but sure old Mark Sullivan now and then lands a Roosevelt punch that must irritate. For Instance: in Kentucky the president said he wanted Barkley returned because the senator is experienced and has acquired lead_- ership by long service; but in Georgia Mr. Roosevelt Is going to be against Senator George, equally experienced, equally a leader from long service, and in favor of a man vholly without experience or congressional eadership. Dryly old Mark comments that the Barkley speech was made July 8, while the speech against George will be made August LOOKS LIKE Russia and Japan are- getting themselves 1 into a position' of having to fight.

It will be interesting to see how these senators vote now, ten years later, if the question is again put. Senator Holt, stormy young Iietrel from West Virginia, has already announced that he will introduce a similar resolution next winter. It is to be hoped that someone less militant, and in whom the country has more confidence, will beat him to it. But whether by him or another, the resolution, if introduced, will start not only a Senate but also a countrywide political war on a momentous issue in American government. In America the road to a possible dictatorship forks to the left on a third term highway. 11: But "Mr, Roosevelt is able to reverse liimself in less time than that."

Candidates for senator and governor are generally so well known that the voters will be capable of making a discriminatory and intelligent choice of those whom they favor.

But In summer it is not always convenient to see all pictures so the run- of-the-mill must be reviewed, regardless of quality/ And after all is said and done, there is more in a picture like Woman Against Woman to sink critical teeth into than to most pictures which this* sumnxer has given us. At least producers have bad the intestinal fortitude to lay bold of a controversial theme; and, fur- tberwpre, have bad the courage to portray tbe wife getting the opinion by Wallaces' Farmer and Iowa Homestead fails to give a final answer to thia question. At present, 25 per cent of the farm voters are on the fence. They don't know whom they will vote for as yet. And this group of doubtful! voters can still turn the election either to the democrat or the republican candidate, so far as the farm vote is concerned. At present Senator Gillette has the strongest hold on farm voters of any candidate. Of the total, 44 per cent favor him, 27 favor Dickinson, 4 per cent favor Buresh, and the other 25 per cent haven't made up their minds. Senator Gillette has shown strength jn another way. Of the 'armera who voted for Herring in L936, in the Herring-Dicklnson- Buresh contest, 64 per cent are out for Gillette, while of the Dickinson voters In 1936, only 58 per cent are now lined up for the republican candidate. Again, Gillette has lost 2 per :ommanding lead in the rural 1 districts to be sure of winning- tbe senatorial election. In 193ff, Herring led Dickinson by 60;00ff votes in the country, but only carried the state by 36,000, In other words, Herring lost the cities and 1 towns— principally the smaller. towns—by a vote of 24,000,,and had 1 to have a big rural majority to- pat him across. In 1936, about three out ol every five farm voters werej for Herring 'here is a possibility that the Gilette majority in the rural districts lay run larger than tbe Herring majority in 1936. Whether even that big a roajor- ty would elect Gillette is, of ourse, another question. The Wai- aces' Farm and Towa Homestead survey shows only bow the rural rote is going. It makes no attempt o estimate the vpte in the towns and cities. A candidate could carry the rural, districts by a big margin and still be beaten, if the towns and cities voted heavily the other way. the CIO.

The campaign Is young yet, o course, and many farmers have no yet made up their minds. The nex survey may show a change • in ranking. Even at present, 23 pe cent of the Dickinson voters of 1936 are uncertain how to vote and 26 per per cent of the Herring voters of 1936 are not lined up for any candidate.
