I _ 11 • i «•-•»• pro- 1940 was in all mYnds "The" lIsTnur^ will (mo?tly because of alleged general public disappear as a fteht to set ,7rIV/'LK I!!! faction with his course ia the Newton strike). It doesn't seem possible that there could have been an iota of truth in it; it doesn't make political sense. Well, the president finally got a purge scalp —Congressman O'Connor, of New York. But maybe he can't' keep it. The wily O'Connor . appear as a fight to set up the nuclei of machines in many states to contest for Hoosevelt delegates to 1940 convention. Nomination, 1940: It will be seen that Roosevelt lost ground to the "regular" politicians in his own party throughout 1939 and 19-10, and that this gave him control of only a minority in the 1940 convention. Thus the 1940 democratic nominee was not to the liking of Roosevelt. < Third party movement: So Roosevelt split from his own party, and became the dominant factor, but not the nominee, of a third party. This party didn't elect a president, but it made an impressive showing and influenced both old parties, with reliefers of the permanent WPA, plus CIO labor, left-wing liberals and radicals, and the negro vote. Farmers and union labor were split between and among the parties. Between 1940 and 1944, the regime was far from conservative, but it did not move forward with the speed of Roosevelt in 1933-39. Tt did not back up much from Roosevelt reforms. It repealed little. It consolidated a liberal position achieved rapidly under Roosevelt. It had another serious depression on its hands . . . inevitable aftermath of Roosevelt inflation and Roosevelt centralization in federal government. But the 1940-44 regime did not go far toward decentralization of power. It wanted to, but couldn't. The popular habit of looking to Washington had become fixed under Roosevelt. And war threats promoted the habit. Authoritarian government: The tendency, both before and after 1940, was toward what critics called authoritarian government, but the implication was denied by the regime in .control, which called it "purely American." The profit system continued . . . restrained, regulated, controlled from Washington, always clumsily, but less clumsily than under Roosevelt. Plenty of people made moderate fortunes, and many lost their shirts again in the depression of the 40'e, because they hadn't learned from the past. America Has More Germans Than Czechoslovakia In his book "Mein Kampf" (My Struggle) Herr Hitler eaid: The same blood belongs to 0. single empire the German reich must embrace all Ge;-- So? Well, then, he may have> a bone to pick with Uncle Sam. There are more Germans in the United States than in Czechoslovakia. In that unfortunate little country there are only 1,300,000, but we have 6,800,000. No notice to deliver a slice of territory has been served on us yet, but we may be favored with that attention as soon as Hitler and Mussolini have licked the European democracies. And Signer Mussolini will want a slice too, for we have 4,500,000 Italians. In fact we might as well begin looking around to see what territory we can slice off to satisfy the herr and the signer. New York City might go quite a piece |n that direction. But, heck, what will our crackpots and other D. M. Eegister Forum writers) do if they can't lay this country's ills to Wall street any more? We have a lot of Poles, top — 3,300,000 of them; and 2,600,000 Russian^; and 1,400,000 Mexicans; 900,000 Austrians; and 680,000 Hun gariane. as much American, and against Germany, too as the boys with Yankee faijoily roots.

That it failed, and toiled miserably, has great bearing on what is likely to happen in the democratic national convention two years from .now. Had the purge been a success, it is conceded that Mr. Roosevelt would have had a walk away In 1D40. He could have renominated himself, or he could have chosen his successor. But as matters now stand the situation seems out of the president's hands* Where there is much smoke there is always some fire. In the democratic camp there has lately been much smoke. A powerful bloc in opposition to Rooseveltian domination has grown up. The purge ha s greatly strengthened it, for It has demonstrated that Mr. Roosevelt Is not all-powerful.. The democratic convention in 1940 will not be under Mr. Roosevelt's thumb unless some powerful reason compels the opposition within the party to yield. That reason may develop out of the European situation. If Europe goes to war, and if Mr. Roosevelt pursues a course which meets the approval of the country, an irresistible demand that he be continued in office may arise. In that event the opposition may be knocked into a cocked hat. Failing that, the conclusion now seems warranted that neither Mr. Roosevelt himself nor his pick will be named for the .presidency in 1940, and in that case the president may repeat the performance of his famous cousin, to the advantage of the republican party. HODGEPODGE . Webster— A stew of various In* gredlents* a mixture. Timely Topics war savee him. they were under prohibition. But weren't t ; le re p e alers going to have it quite the other That was a queer political rumor whlsh about the state recently — that leading were urging Governor Kraechel to Played both ends against the middle by run- WWle ^amberlain's s°un ning- for the republican nomination too, and ond thought. Despite the merits of the posr- p;ot it. Now he's staying democratic for party tion of either leader, British diplomacy out- salvage as much as possible of the disgruntled democratic vote by letting such democrats vote for him as an independent democrat Pretty cute politics, eh? In a good many cases WPA grants are being turned down by voters. In many other commnities, as in Algona, no move is even being made towards getting a "grant. There seems to be good ground for an impression '.hat the people are becoming "fed up" with iDlossal government spending as a pump-prim- ng device. They saw one dose of it go to pot (in the recession), and they have lost faith In it. "Step by step he [Mr. Roosevelt] has impaired his strength. Step by step, in the pursuit of illusions, he has dissipated the oppor- :unity to achieve sound, reasonable, necessary, tnd permanent reforms." Raymond Moley alking [and you should hear General Johu- ion.']. One of the strangest things about the iresent administration is the number of once ntimate advisers of Mr. Hoosevelt who have broken with him and turned into bitter cri- ics. Opinions of Editors Hey, "IHck," Here's an Idea! Logan Observer—It would be a great help o the republican party of Iowa if Roosevelt vould send his stalwart battlers out here to purge Senator Dickinson. It would be even a greater help if the president himself would come out and tell lowans how they must vote. Case of Money Well Spent. Story City HeraldJ—Recent figures from the tate auditor's office show that Iowa has spent :00 million dollars on its road system since 9i7. Last year the sum spent for roads amounted to over 28 million dollars. Bonds till outstanding for the building oi the primary roads amount to $83,449,000. Well, It's What We Teach 'em. Editor E. K. Ptttman in Northwood Anchor —It seems to me that I hear more grumbling and complaining recently than used to be the case. Men who appear to be doing quite well nsist that they are badly off. Things never ;et so bad that they cannot be worse. A long ime ago a philosopher said: "I had no shoes and bitterly complained till I met a poor man vho had no feet." Consistency—Now, What's That? Eagle Grove Eagle—Coining and applying >uch phrases as "Bourbon," "prince of privi- ege," "economic royalist" is just a resort to lanie-calling. We have had a lot of that in the past six years, with the White House taking the initiative. Now comes the president n his Labor day address, condemning name- calling which arrays class against class, which engenders hatred of labor for industry, and vice versa.

FOB THE SUPERSTITIOUS Tuesday night's display of northern lights, marked particularly by a wide red band of light at about 10 p. in., might indicate war in Europe. At any rate the lights did raise heck with radio reception and the radio crackled and roared during the period. ***** ONE ALGONIAir accepted a ride home Monday night and forgot his own car, which stood neglected on a business street for the remainder of the night. The next morning he nearly put in a riot call to the police to have his "stolen car" returned, but after some reflection recalled where it was. * • • • • AN ALGONA SECOND-STORY worker in the insurance business received perhaps the local record for a "long distance" phone call. He was standing on the south side of State street when a call for him came at Barry's. One of the louder boye yelled across the street for htm to come and answer the phone. IF ONE COD LITER tablet is good for a cold, then a lot of them would be better— that's the theory a moody young Algonian used Sunday when he gulped down 60 of the pellets. But no soap—Tuesday he was honking into his hankie with the best of them. That number of pellete is equal to a quart and a half of oil, and 'tis reported he is now so fishy that cats follow him mewing plaintively. • • * • • ONE DAY LAST WEEK the business section was canvassed by e woman asking people to buy a 25-cent copy of a magazine to "aid tubercular children." The magazine said nothing about such a business, and buyers are now wondering if they were the victim of a new kind of racket and if "tubercular children" would ever see any of that two-bits. The best" practice is to ask for a Chamber of Commerce letter from all solicitors. It's your own protection, and if the solicitor is honest there will be no objection. Take no excuses for not having such a letter. • * * • • WONDER IF THAT nearly solid black line at the bottom of those new check, blanks is in mourning for overdraft account* or a warning to bad check artists. • * • • • WHAT A CONTRAST between those two speeches—one by Hitler Monday noon, and the other by Chamberlain Tuesday noon. Hitler's was accompanied by shouting and frenzy, while Chamberlain's sounded like sober sec- DORENBUSHES HOLD REUNION NEAR LAKOTA • * • * • CHAMBERLAIN'S ADDRESS was short, concise, clear and moderate, while Hitler took over an hour, some of the time hurling epithets. Chamberlain spoke with a quiet background. Hitler hod cheering thousands to punctuate his remarks. Hitler said the democracies were "lying." Chamberlain said the German attitude was merely unreasonable. One was overstatement and the other understatement. • * * * * TRULY THESE ARE unusual times. They are made more unusual by radio— which brings world leaders' talks into everyone's home, and everyone can judge the merits of pleas first hand rather than reading in cold print. • * » • * THERE ARE MORE listeners to radio programs now than at any period in recent history, with perhape the single exception of dm> ing the hectic days preceding Edward's abdication. ***** THERE IS A terrific jarring note, however, when some peanut announcer fol'l'oiws a speech like Chamberlain's with a falsely enthusiastic rave about the merits of some product. These radio ads do not sound true. • * * * * IN THIS COUNTRY, not faced by war, immediate anyway, interest in the Cubs-Pirates ball game overshadowed even the world shaking events in Europe. The Cubs were only a half game behind, and Saturday too was their dead-line—and a league championship was at stake, ROOSEVELT'S ACTION in sending his second peace note only to Germany eug- " gestlng mediation is a slight slap-down for the Fuhrer, who had declared the first note should have been sent only to Czechoslovakia. • * * * • PERHAPS MUSSOLINI is not Hitler's friend after all. France hasn't a soldier on the Italian border. Britain and Russia are not much worried about Mussolini, who makes speeches but doesn't follow his words with actioaa,' Perhaps Hitler is being sold down the river. Japan says she's too busy with China to help the Fuhrer out now, and besides Russia is almost begging Japan to get into the scrap so Russia can wipe the little fellows off the map. ***** SOME DAY PERHAPS Chamberlain's address will be given with appropriate feeling by high school declaimers in the oratorical division. Perhaps on the same program will be Lakota, Sept. 28—John Dorenbush, Elmore, Minn., Sieben Julius, Webster City, and John Gustin, Charles City, were visitors at Otto Koppen's Thursday. The men and their wives attended a family reunion of the Dorenbushes at the John Hill home near Elmore a week ago Sunday and spent the week visiting relatives.
