In a recent conversation between two friends, one of them, already tired of winter, remarked that he wished he were four or five miles straight south, somewhere in South America, where it is now spring. It was all tight to wish he were in South America, but if lie had on some magic carpet been transported straight south he would have found himself in exceeding damp quarters, in fact in water to the income of all the people in the sum of eighty billions. We have never had an 80-bllllott income It. this coiintry. The best 1939 will do Is 64 billions, and 1939 will not do better than 70 billions, even If It Is a prosperous year. Whenever the talk turns on the budget and the deficits this 80-blllion alibi is sprung. It doesn'tf seem to occur to anyone that the outgo needs to be reduced to arrive at a balanc-J en the basis of the income we have, not merely the income hoped for. This in fact, was once Mr. Roosevelt's Idea. The deficits began under Hoover. In the 1932 campaign Mr. Roosevelt made much of them, and definitely and repeatedly promised to end ihem in case of his election. "For three long years," snld Mr. lloos- crelt in one well remembered campaign speech, "I have been wing up and down this country preaching that government costs too much ... I shall not stop that preaching." In the same address 1 , or another, Mr. Roose- ivelt made a definite pledge to cut government expenditures 25 per cent, as many radio listeners will recall. Savagely he criticised Hoover for looseness in government finance. Yet the fact now is that federal deficits under Roosevelt have put the puny Hoover record to shame. When the question of resumption of specie payments was up in the 70's Senator Sherman, in a remark that has become historic, said, "The way to resume is to resume." Similariy the way to balance the budget is to balance It, not on the basis of some income that the country may have at some fu'ture time, but on the basis of what we have now. Any other scheme is just plain "phony." some miles deep. For Timely Topics Lord knows, this newspaper has never had much time for Kras'chel since he came here in wartime to help bamboozle farmers Into buying thousand-dollar hogs. But it's something else to see any man kicked when he's down, so a little sympathy for him as the Demo powers that be attempt to boot him out of party councils is not out of place. though we are accustomed to think of The state executive council South America as south of the United States the fact is that the bulk of that continent is Wegmaii's attorney's fee for passed young payment, but Comptroller Murtagh held it up and Attorney- east of its North American twin.

Careless of geography, we commonly think of Chili and the Argentine as directly south of us, but as a matter of fact they are a long way east of even Washington. One gets surprising confirmation of this on discovery that it is 2 oclock in the afternoon at Rio De Janeiro when it is noon at New York City. Yet there is only an hour's difference between our Iowa time and New York's. As a writer in the Christian Science Monitor points out, Rio Is 1707 miles east of New York City, or about the AlTt MAN AKD HIS DEN. 1 "When we're married, dear, can I have room of my own?" "Why yes, you darling. You can have a room that I won't even put a thing in, just for your very own." II "Now, honey, this Is a nice house, but don't you think it's too small? There's no place for my den." "Well, I suppose you're right, but this kitchen Is just divine. However, you must have your den." HI "Now dear, don't get so excited. Just as soon as you get that raise we'll get a bigger home and you can have your old den." IV "Now you can have your den in this room. We can shut the door and people won't see in when they come." T "Dear, would you mind much if we kept the baby carriage In the den. We could take that old rocking chair out, and it's in the way anyway . . . .Don't shout so! You can keep that chair if you feel that way about It. All I was trying to do was keep your 1 home bright and cheery for you." YI "Don't go shouting around the house like that just because you stepped ^on the baby's ball. Why, everybody falls down, but to hear you yell a body'd think you were half killed. Heavens, we must have somewhere to put the baby's toys! We just can't have them in the middle of the front room." ?n » "When the chidlren are grown up you can have your den back. You're too busy anyway to use it, and all you have there anyway is a lot of old pipes that smell up the house, and those old guns and junk around. A body'd think you been brought up in a barn. I can't keep things neat and nice with all that stuff around the house." Yin "What a pretty wedding, but I always feel so sad when one of the youngsters leaves us, and she was the last.

The state supreme court has tightened rules for admission to the bar.

Were re- of the old way so bad as to require it? Some of the newspapers are referring to the Herring-Birmingham assault on Kraschel as an attempt at a "purge." That's not only a striking way to put it, but an epithet that calls for reflection on the part of democrats who want to keep the party united in Iowa. The high command in this state seems to be in dire need of a few doses of hard sense. If the G. O. P. is hard put to it to find a 1940 prospect big enough for the presidency, how about the Demos? The conservatives don't want Roosevelt, and anyhow it's becoming evi- that Roosevelt doesn't plan to run. But you get dresse'd up. Anyway, now you can have that den you've always wanted . . . What!

P. faces. But the G. O. P. does have one advantage: it doesn't have to pick a colorless middle-of-the-roader to avoid a party split. Whatever reservations some republicans may ntertaiu concerning Governor Landon's evident admiration of Roosevelt policies in general, they are with him in his declaration at !,ima that this government stands unreservedly behind the Monroe Doctrine no .matter what party is in power. The Hitlers and tha Mussolinis might as well understand that first as last. Employers might as well get ready to sigh resignedly as they pay another new tax. The latest scheme for amendment of the Security act contemplates financing jointly by employers, employes, and the government—the latter a new partner. Which, of course, bolls down to a new burden for employers (a tax "going" as well as "coming," as it were), since the em- ployes will escape practically all of the government's share. If Earl G. Miller, secretary of state-elect, For, strange as it may seem, South America is only a matter of 1500 miles from Africa, and Buenos Aires, a metropolis only second in population to New York City and Chicago, is actually two days nearer Germany (for example) by present steamship routings than New York City. Even by air one can leave Berlin 'and reach Buenos Aires quicker than frora. New York City. When these facts are pondered one gets a rew appreciation of 'why Germany (again for example) seeks penetration in South America; of the difficulties due to geography (not tc mention temperamental differences between 'Anglo-Saxons and Latins) which our diplomats and our commerce face in contact with the countries of that vast continent; of the opportunity which proximity affords to aggressive nations of the Old World to challenge supremacy of our influence and trade in South tisanship when demonstrated public interest is America, and insidiously to effect what amounts to colonization; of the stupendous iburden we assumed in the Monroe Doctrine; and, finally, of our need of a navy able to defend that Doctrine. So it is no mere love feast that is going on at Lima. On the contrary deadly issues are at stake; the future of South America is in balance, in some degree our own future as well. We are endeavoring to save the Americas for democracy. We are opposed by calculating .and powerful Old World influences, and we oven labor under the handicap of Latin American suspicion, particularly Mexican and Ar- gentinian. In this situation it is of the greatest importance that both South America and the rest of the world understand that when we say "Hands Off!" we mean it and will enforce if. Thus there was high reason, vastly more than met the casual eye in newspaper announcements, why Governor Laiidon was chosen to broadcast that message. That reason was to let the world know again that in foreign affairs there is only one party in this country, and that party is to a man behind the government. imagined that his exhibition of partisanship in selection of a new highway patrol chief would draw plaudits from state republican newspapers he must have been astonished by the result, condemnation having been practically universal. The episode has shown that even the most diehard editors can rise above par- involved. While you are keeping an eye on Governor Lehman as the Demo "white hope" in 1940—in case F. R. keeps out—you might now and then cast the other eye on Champ Clark's son, senior senator from the Show Me state. There's speculation that Garner may back him. What poetic justice if Champ Clark's son became president. Champ himself, you recall, was euchered out of all but sure nomination when Bryan turned it to Wilson in 1912.

The Alibi for Failure to Balance the Budget According to the United States News, estimated federal outgo for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1939, will far exceed estimated income and full ten years of deficits will be rounded out. Needed for a balanced budget, that is, for income from taxation equaling outgo, is a national income of 80 billions, meaning the totals of the incomes of all the people. In other •words existing taxation would yield enough reveixue to equal the outgo if it were applied Blind Voting in Primaries. Red Oak Express—The primary system as now constituted does not offer a solution to 'true democracy. Too many peopje are compelled to vote blindly for candidates. Out of the hodgepodge of two to six candidates for each nomination in the primary, the fortunate nominee more than often owes his selection to luck than merit. It is the result of "blind" voting. Why Dues the Depression Hang On? Northwood Anchor—Why is it that until less than six years ago this country never had a fo-called depression which did not soon right .itself? Men looking for work took jobs at the wages offered and gradually went on from there to better jobs. Now employers are hedged about with so, many restrictions, so jaany 'don'ts," that in' self-defense they may have to abolish many small jobs which at least afforded livings to persons who many, many times were graduated to better jobs. Something is radically wrong and millions believe the difficulty lies in Washington, D. C. AND IT'S A PLEASURE to say "Merry Christmas" because we live in these United States. We may have a merry Christmas without thought that in so doing we may be anti- Aryan and liable to be packed off to some concentration camp. ***** AND SO WE COME toward the end of another year. Only a few days till Christmas Seven more to New Year's day. What bright hopes there were a year ago. What bright hopes for 1939 will there be in a few days. It is mankind's greatest gift to be able to continue hopiing—to feel that each New Year may be better than the one just ending, no mattei the struggle. May it always be so. ***** Sam held her hand and she hel'd hiz'n, And then they hugged and went to kiz'n.
