Journalism Mention last winter in some north centra Iowa newspapers of editors of weeklies who have been long on the job started one of the discussions which for weeks get a run-around In the papers. J. W. Haggard, of the Upper Des Moines •was among the mentioned to begin with, but it Boon developed that his long record had to bow to that of W. F. Miller, of Livermore, who las published his Gazette 54 years. Editor Frank Jaqua of the Humboldt papers, himself due to celebrate a full half century in the profession in 1943, raked up the Miller record, "guessing" that Miller had "published a single newspaper longer than any other man HODGEPODGE Webster—A stow of rations la- gredients} a mixture, exam- In the state of Iowa, if not States." in the 1 Uaited But no sooner said than Editor E. E. Taylor, of the Traer Star-Clipper, chided Mr. Jaqua for forgetfulness, for eleven years ago the Bumboldt journalist attended a 50th anniversary banquet for Mr. Taylor, under whom, in fact, Mr. Jaqua began the printer's trade The Celebrated Case of Earl G. Miller Consider the case of Mr. Earl G. Miller, sec retary of state. It is worthy at least passing consideration, for it may be unique, in tha there has perhaps not been another like it in the whole history of state government In this country. • 'Mr. Miller ought to become a classic pie of a man in public office who "shot off his mouth" too much and thereby, so to speak, put his foot Into H. Indeed he began it even before he became a public official, though immediately after he became an ofiflcial-elect. This was when he announced that 'he would make a political football of the highway patrol by making politics the chief requirement for service, There was an outburst of public indignation over this announcement, but it taught Mr Miller nothing. He followed up with other' pronouncements which got him "in bad" and deeper. The indignation became statewide and was reflected in the legislature. Like a green bay tree the impression grew that Mr Miller was not fit for his job. The legislature acted. Result: Mr. Miller, who began with 275 employes now has ten! There is even a present movement to abolish the office and thereby reduce Mr. Miller to a status of unemployment. But let us not be too THIS WEEK IS national baby week. No better time of the^year could be imagined for baby -week. This is the season when nature awakens— the green shoots and buds become flowers and leaves, which in the late summer mature into ripened fruit. It is the season for beginnings— tfor planting gardens and flowers and shrubs and food. It is the time for out- cf-doors after the winter cooping. ***** PERHAPS THERE are some who sneer at people who get maudlin over a baby — but the chances are 100-to-l that person has never had the not unmixed joys of parenthood. Everyone started as' a baby —something warm, cuddly, helpless, and lovable. As days and months and years bring power and knowledge the mind is warped to ita destiny. • * * * * DESPITE ALL THE shouting of orators to the contrary man is not born equal.

TKAVEij NOTES— We made a little three-day jaunt into three states over the weekend before last, came' home with the uncomfortable feeling that Iowa is in the "dog-house." If there is anything more irritating, while traveling .through the country, than a 25-mile an hour sign about a mile from city limits, then I don't know what it is. Belmond, Hampton, and Shell Rock- to mention only three—are worst offenders, though small towns all over eastern Iowa .seem to take special delight in making the going "tough" for the motorist. 'In Illinois and Wisconsin the ferences between children. Every parent recognizes this — tolerantly watching another parent brag up his offspring, and then turn to drool with delight over the superior wisdom of his own. so many years ago. .|. r And since Editor Taylor has continued with the Star-Clipper to this day, he is now a veteran; of 61 years in the business (and how many to age?) and for the present seems entitled to wear the crown of longevity in weekly newspaper circles, though if only printing were in issue he would have to yield to A. A. Johnson, the Civil war soldier and printer at Corwith. Editor R. R. Roberts, of the Britt News- Tribune, no slouch in the longevity line, can always be depended on to say nice things about fellow editors, and he winds up the discussion as follows:. No matter that such slight mistakes were made. The newspapers of north Iowa congratulate such fine editors as Taylor and Harwood an(3 Jaqua and Miller and Dewel This publisher finds himself sorting out the exchanges when they come each week to read what these men have said editorially We younger men just do not seem to have the wisdom of those great journalists, and perhaps never will. There must have been something in the age in which they developed that is missing in later years. Gone are the days of "Bailey of Britt," Bernard Murphy, of Vinton, Joe Trigg, of Rockford and many more. Great as they were they did not develop the scholarly editorial columns that are found in the Livermore, the Traer the Clarion, the Humboldt, the Algona, and the Northwood weekly newspapers of today. But if Mr. Roberts is going into the questicui of editorial excellence he will have to expand his list into at least a column. How about Barnes, of Eagle Grove, Ed. M. Smith, of the Wiuterset Madisonian, Ceorse Gallarno, of Plain Talk, Des Moines, W. F. Hunter,' of Webster City, "Pa" Olson, of Story City, "Vic 1 " Lovejoy, of Jefferson, M. L.

And anyhow the other Earl the enemy Earl, Mr. W. Earl Hall, redoubtable chief of the State Safety Council who has fairly won his spurs in the battle to convert Mr. Miller into a goose-egg, might well quail before the task involved in amendment of the state constitution. See Art. IV, Execufve De- p:.rtment, Sec. 22. But something the next legislature could do without the long' process of constitutional amendment fand which it needs a sharp slap 1 on the wrist for not having done this winter) is to amend the primary law by taking state officials below governor and lieutenant governor out of it. No doubt even that wouldn't insure the state against an occasional misfit, but the hazard would be reducea. Timely Topics In case you are interested in war prospects, the semi-official Washington dope is 50/50, but a private weekly letter service for business men says unofficial opinion is, "No war this year." The official dopesters, most of them, really think that too, but don't want to say so, fearful they might be caught off guard. Prank R. Kent, Washington syndicate writer for the D. M. Register & Tribune, absolves 1 resident Roosevelt from political designs in his foreign policy. Which suggests that if such i Roosevelt hater as Kent has shown himself to be thinks the president is on the level when dealing with foreign nations the rest of us can well afford to adopt the same opinion. An Algonian who recently returned from a stay of some months at Portland Ore has received a list of HOLC foreclosed houses for sale there. It covers seven sheets of legal size in single-spaced typing, one description to a line. "Just think," he writes; "these homes were supposed to be saved to the owners by a benevolent democratic government!" Perhaps you have noticed in the papers that Americans who have preferred life in Europe are now hurrying home—headed by Bergdoll the draft-dodger. Even the Countess Haugwitz von Reventlow (Woolworth) is back—scared, too, because she isn't sure .she can stay having traded her American citizenship for that cheap title. And the Lindberghs are also here again, though their case is perhaps not the THERE'S AN INTERESTING article in a current low-price magazine concerning the superior intelligence Of the true Jewish people who because of persecution through the ages have" had an involuntary system of eugenics enforced wherein. th« weakling has been eliminated and the strong survive to raise stronger and stronger children. A Jewish child in countries where they have .been persecuted is taught that he must be very intelligent to even get by. • * • • • , / BABIES ABE NOT BOBN equal in mental instincts any more than, in physical characteristics. No one expects a huge giant from a. pair of smaller than average parents. No one expects a red-haired child unless the red hair runs in one branch of the life-line that is brought together. Some are born to be slow methodical thinkers, who plod down the middle of the road straight for an objective Others are flashy, brilliant thinkers, with a touch oif genius. ***** IT IS ONLY BY intensive training that the mental equipment can be brought up to par in a child whose mental instincts are below par. It is a much tougher grind and battle for this child, to whom more credit is due when he succeeds than to the flashy brilliant child whose work was easily done. ***** rule is 30 to 36 miles through the smaller towns, with signs within the city limits. Orife of the most serious drawbacks to safe, Intelligent motoring is rules, and regulations which are silly and nonsensical, without any bearing whatsoever- on careful driving. No one disputes the advisability of slowing up while going through villages and towns, but few .touring motorists are going to slow up to 25 m. p. h. before even a house is visible. Then why the law? It is bad enough to slow down to 20 m. p. m. through the business district of some jerkwater village, but there is at least some excuse for it, and every careful motorist is willing to cooperate with the officers to make driving safe. But a 25-mile limit a mile from a town Is ridiculous, unnecessary, and fosters law breaking. •In Illinois a sane view is taken of the matter, .with some regard for the touring public. I am a fast but careful driver. When I'm out in the open, I usually strike a 60 m. p. h. pace, but I'm willing to obey rules which make for safe driving. On congested corners, I'm willing to slacken speed to 40, or even 35, and through towns 25 is all right. What I object to is a useless and arbitrary ruling that slows the touring motorist to a snail's pace. iWhat's the matter! with Iowa z that It adopts such asinine rulings, when sister states make traveling a pleasure within their borders? All I can eay is that it's darned aggravating—and at times in recent travels I have used even strong language when I referred to It. If we are to have a wholesome respect for alw in Iowa, we must pass laws which we may honestly and intelligently respect. ALEXANDEBGBAHAM BELL— M producers are going to get into the biographical picture busi- matlc wallop into her character^ izations as to win herself a two- time niche in the 1 Academy of Awards, And Dark Victory should make her a third-time candidate/ Unsuccessful on , the stage, yet, by careful direction and delicate portrayal via Miss Davis, the screen version emerges as a powerful 'drama of human enlotion, a credit' to the cast, the director, to the star in particular.

DODGE CITY~ Dodge City lives up to the pres notices as a rootin', tootin', shoot In 1 melodrama of the early wester pineer days and ties into the coun try's most Important developmen era—the building of the transcon tinental railroads. Sandwiched between some of th most vicious fights in cinema his lory are some unbelievably beautl ful technicolor shots of pralrl landscape; scenes so pastoral, an yet so artistic, as to create the im .presslon of a Corot or an Inness. •That Inimitable romantic-action team, Errol Flynn and Olivia De Havilland, brave the surging -wat ers of villainy and Intrigue to emerge in the final covered-wagon scene as happy hus.band and wife —against a sepia background of a setting sun.

I wonder how far we have progressed? Are human emotions and human desires the same today, though venee'red with a thin coating of polish and culture?

Work deserving of an "A" from one pupil could deserve only a "C" from mission), W. J. Casey, also of Knoxvllle — to name only a few? ^ Somebody ought to write a book about tha first-class weekly newspapers of Iowa and their veteran publishers. It would take a Look—and then some—for in no other state can be found so many weeklies of such high average grade of excellence. Mr. White's Letter to the Governor Standard advice for one who writes a letter in anger is to write at length what anger dictates, then lay the letter aside and rewrite next day when passion has cooled. It was highly unfortunate for Mr. Harry C. White of the ousted board of control, that he tlid not follow this practice when he wrote Governor Wilsu about the ouster last week or seek the counsel of a wise friend, for the tone of the letter itself proves that the writer does not measure up to high office. To illustrate it is sufficient to quote the following extract: V V As an old friend, may I take the liberty of suggesting that you do not permit your head to unduly enlarge because you now find yourself governor of Iowa? You should bear in wind that this peculiar phenomenon is due only to the fact that at the last election you had no real opposition and that a slight majority of the voters seemed to have considered you to be the leaser of two evils. Now it seems from the general editorial comment of the state and other reliable sources of information that those who voted for you as the "lesser of the evils are not at all sure that you are even that. I can give you one consolation, however, and that is that no one can deprive you oi your one chance, that is, to be a one-term governor. That this is intemperate language which might be expected from a high school sophomore but is unworthy a mature man in high place is evident to any reader, and this entirely without passing on the board's case. One can hear the like on any school ground where angry boys taunt each, other. Mr. White same. More than anything else in state affairs the state institutions muddle needs clearing up I he people want a fact report from a non- l.artisan commission no member of which is connected with politics. Governor Wilson could do no better than to name such a commission and see to it that its work is thorough. The people have no confidence that what lias been done is not mostly political tinkering. A late biography is that of Thaddeus Stevens. Doesn't mean a thing to you likely But mention the name to your great gran'daddy, and he will tell you that for seven long years in the tragic era" following the Civil war that fierce old man dominated congress and more than anyone else was responsible for the re-construction policy which to this day accounts for the Solid South. If you would know your county's history this is a book for you. n r} \ et ,S meiie " pUl 'S e " seems to be still on at the White House, and Herding, who also has a mind of his own, appears to be in it too At any rate the grapevine report is that Gillette hasn t been invited to have any say in naming n n s - attornev for northern Iowa to succeed K u. Dunn, Mason City, who opposed Gillette last year, and it is a fact that both Gillette and Herring got from newspapers their first news of the elevation of Dean Rutledge, of the university law college, to a seat on the district of Columbia Court of Appeals. Opinions of Editors But Maybe They Wouldn't Swea City Herald — This humble observer fails to understand why the republicans should want to take over the government in Washington in 1940. Whoever steps in is going to be plagued ten thousand times. The democrats or rather their spawn, the new dealers, made this mess. Let the democrats clean it up. Our Frontier is on the Rhine. ., 'Eagle Grove Eagle—Well, we sell scrapiron to Japan to kill the Chinese; we sold Italy the oil with which she won the war with Ethiopia. So why not sell France all the airplanes she can pay for?

The stronger we make France an<| England, the less we have to fear from Germany and Italy, another. ***** THIS INEQUALITY and the declining birth rate among people such as those in Kossuth county, is causing some alarm as to the future of the world. Scientists see the birth of hundreds and thousands of children in the city slums who have no ' chance, either from a mental or an economic standpoint. They see those who could provide children with better-than- average minds and a start in economic life passing up the opportunity. ***** AND SO IT IS WISE that we observe baby week—particularly here in the middle west, where we can and do give a child a healthy mind, body, and'environment—the best in the world. ./****» ' THERE ARE TWO women in Algona, O. L,. H. W., who issued a challenge Saturday to bridge players in Kossuth or adjoining counties. The play is to be at a tenth. These two have been trimming the local enthusiasts (so they say), and want fresher fish. Can anybody think of anybody who can knock their ears down, even if it's necessary to do a little cheating to do it? ***** OVEUHEABD AT a cafe: "I think old men are much more interest- Alexander Graham Bell if they want to turn out interesting productions. For the Story of Alexander Graham Bell is about as flat and colorless a screen 'presentation as I have sat through in a long time There isn't a climax, or even an anti-climax, in the whole show- just a dreary, uninteresting, lifeless portrait of the man who gave us our telephone, his romantic love and marriage to Loretta Young, then his' ceaseless struggle to perfect his invention. The lives of Pastuer and Zola had romance, too, and glamour, exciting, climactic, throbbing with human emotions and flashes' of real drama. But why any producer would spend time and money in trying to make as drab a life as Bell's screen fodder is beyond my power of comprehension. In the first place, !Don Ameche is too light dramatic timber for any biographical sketch. For roles of this type, an older and more experienced character actor is necessary.

Sunday night I saw Don Ameche in The Story of Alexander Bell at the Majestic theater m Beloit, Wis., and Monday night by dint of hard driving and pre- severence, I was back ia my old seat at the New Call, again see- g Don Ameche, but this time ith Claudette Colbert in Mid- ight. And I can't eay much for on Ameche in this role either. But at that, as a romantic, carefree, taxi-driver in Paris Don is much more convincing than in the character part he portrayed in the biogaphical sketch. Midnight is one of those farces that defy criticism. You either like it or you don't, and there are probably few good .reasons for either I found it dull,, and Miss Colbert's efforts at sparkling conversation seemed trite. There's always the naughty touch in pictures of that type, as, for example, when it looks like the young man and the maiden are going to be forced to sleep in the same bedroom; or when Claudette is reaching for her negligee while under the covers of the bed in the altogether. But there's little else in the picture to get into a lather about. Impossible situations, of course are no drawback to a farce-comedy; but there has got to be a certain touch of genius about them which this one lacks.
