It ie 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 lie 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 lost 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 him as president a nation intact. 1 do not want to leave it to my successor in which. Buchanan left it to Lincoln. These statements are, of course, in no way binding, and Mr. Roosevelt would not be violating his word if he ran again. "Whether Mr. Roosevelt's intention 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 thai Mr. Roosevelt keeps his own counsel. An} president is wise to maintain silence as long as possible. Premature announcement would -probably wreck his leadership during the vest of his stay in office. For this reason presidents have habitually delayed such announcements till the last minute. Belief that the president CLAMOR GROWS." 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 chough. 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 Ha ten. The politicians' are listening now. The Register's story tells the tale. In Florida Senator Pepper, to obtain renomlnation, pledged support to the Townsend plan. So did Senator Thomas in Oklahoma. "iMany New Deal candidates are committed to various versions of the old age pension plan championed by Dr. Francis E. Townsend," save 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 tiie money for pensions, and sometimes the well runs dry. It ran dry in Colorado at $34 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. The whole pension and allied tax "racket" 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.

Or, you farmers, right on your farms! .If the theory is good, is there any stopping place— or any private pro-perty any more? Governor Kraschel is undoubtedly keeping one eye on this fall's election, as he develops his Newton: policy..

The spirit of "grab" is in the air, spread by a profligate government heedless of extravagance and debt. Governor Kraschel's order closing the National Labor Relations Board hearing at Newton was probably wise, for the hearing cer- from the main 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 little 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; Roosevelt is going to George, equally experienced, equally a leader from long service,- and in favor of a man. wholly without experience or congressional leadership. Dryly old Mark comments that the Barkley speech was made July 8, while the speech against George will be made August 11: But "Mr. Roosevelt is able to reverse himself in less time than that," but in Georgia Mr. be against Senator ington has been almost a principle or Amer- tainly did distract attention lean government. To upset it would be the & ta ttaJt-iaUon ^rt^t^ a lf^ uttermost in spectacular personal achievement. 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. Orant 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 LaPollette resolution against third terms, and nine present New Deal senators supported it, including Barkley, of Kentucky, Ashurst, of Ariiona, McKellar, of Tennessee, Pittman, of Nevada, Thomas, of Oklahoma, and Wagier, of New York, all pretty much rubber stamp- ers. Six conservative democrats still in the Senale who voted for the resolution Included Glass, of Virginia, Harrison, of Mississippi, King, of Utah, Smith, of South Carolina, and Tydings, of Maryland. 'Six progressive republicans of like persuasion were Borah, Capper, Frazier, Hiram W. Johnson, Nye, and Norris. It will be interesting to see how these senators vote now, ten years later, if the question is again put. Senator Holt, stormy young Iibtrel 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.

We are surprised that the recent republican convention in its platform resolutions did not advo- cute such a change in our primary law.

Most of the time these accusations have no basis in fact, but ave only a pant of the hysteria that marks the close of any contest as tightly fought as this one has been. The Queen contest is definitely on the up-and- up and the newspapers are watching the voting carefully. ***** which seems more apparent when shown pictorially. There is the position of the husband, who, till tire nurse-maid to his child tells Mm his wife is selfish and completely self-centered, had not been aware of this fact, even though he 6as been married for years. Perhaps there are 'husbands who aren't conscious of their wife's shortcomings but if so they surely wouldn't take a maid's word for it and sue for divorce. And after obtaining the divorce, certainly they wouldn't forget the faults and again play the "sucker." Or would they? After all, this is more a drama of the female of the species than the male. The husband conducts himself as a gentleman, attempting at all times to maintain peace between the two warring women. I wondered if there were women who would attempt, as did this wife, to wring sympathy from friends by always appearing as under-dog in public. I decided that there most certainly were such women, Mary Astor gives a restrained, almost sympathetic portrayal of the shrewd, scheming wife who sought to further her own interests and will at the expense of her husband.

THE SHOPWOBN ANGEL I'm sorry to have missed The Shopworn Angel, which some loca cinemaddicts praised loudly. Prob ably I give space to an inferio production in the foregoing. Bu in summer it is not always convea lent to see all pictures so the run of-the-mill must be reviewed, re gardless of quality," And after all is eaid and done there is more in a picture lik Woman Against Woman to sin critical teeth Into than to moat pic lures which this- summer has give us. At least* producers have ha the intestinal fortitude to lay tool of a controversial theme; and, fu: tb.enn.Qre., have had the courage t portray tbe wife getting tke How will Iowa farm people vote for United States senator' this fall? Will Senator Gillette, exr-Senator ickinson or Farmer-LaUm- Candt- ite Buresh carry the> farm dis- icts? A recent survey of Iowa farm pinion by Wallaces' Farmer and owa Homestead fails to give a nal answer to this question. At resent, 25 per cent of the farm oters are on the fence. They don't now whom they will vote for as et. And this group of doubtful oters can still turn the election ither to the democrat or the re- ublican candidate, so far as the arm vote is concerned. At present Senator Gillette has he strongest hold on farm voters f any candidate. Of the total, -14 >er cent favor him, 27 favor Dick- nspn, 4 per cent favor Buresh, and the other 25 per cent haven't made up their minds. Senator Gillette has shown strength in another way. Of the armers who voted for Herring in ^936, in the Herring-Dickinson- Buresh contest, 64 per cent are out ° r .-?i 11 ,! t &.1ir hlle . of - the Dickinson 3 per cent are candidate. Again, Gillette has lost 2 per R,?. ¥ th !! ? errln s 1936 vote to Buresh and 8 per cent to Dickinson, while Dickinson, has lost 12 per cent of his 1936 vote to Gillette and 7 per cent to Bureeh The campaign Is young y e t of course and many farmers have yet made up their minds. The commanding lead in the rural' districts to be sure of wirrnitotr the senatorial election. In 1936", Herring led Dickinson, by 60',000 votes in the country, but only carried the state by 36,000. In other words, Herring lost the cities ami towns— principally the smaller, towns—by a vote of 24,000,,and had: to have a big rural majority to pat ito across. In 1936, about three out 61 every ive farm voters were? for Herring. There Is a possibility that the GU- ette majority in the rural districts may run larger than the Herring majority in 1936. Whether even that big a major- ty would elect Gillette is, of course, another question. The Wai- aces' Farm "and Iowa Homestead survey ehows only how the rural vote is going. It makes no attempt to estimate the vpte in the towns and. cities. A candidate could carry the rural districts 1 by a big margin and still' be beaten, if the towns and cities voted heavily the other way.
