The Third Term and Its Prophets Mr. Kraschel goes tij Washington, confers with the president, and on the White House steps tells newspaper men that he is for a third term for Mr. Roosevelt. Mr. Kraschel is a statesman without a jo,b, and, some say not in high favor with the 'democratic higher-ups m Iowa who run things. He is badly In need of some recognition which would tend to restore his political standing. Hanging onto Roosevelt's coattails used to work. Maybe it will again. Mr. Edward H. Birmingham, democratic state chairman, has also come out for Mr. Hoosevelt. Mr. Birmingham would, for he is After a $500 a month job which the president can bestow. Almost anyone would be for Mr. Roosevelt for a third term—yeah, for life!— under such circumstances. What's the good of the country beside a $500 a month job? In the meantime Sen. Clyde L. Herring is not committing himself. In plain English this undoubtedly means that Mr. Herring ia not sold on the third term idea. "I'm not coming out for any candidate right now," he told the newspaper men. He's going to talk first with "the boys back home." But here are a few words for the edification of Messrs. Kraschel and Birmingham— who, by the way, love each other in cat and dog style: "When the democrats of Iowa get ready to speak they will speak through the state convention." As much as to say, "Not through Mr. Kraschel and Mr. Birmingham." So much for the smooth politicians. It re- preceding Twenty YeaM After column Doctor Janse was quoted as having reported sales IB the L.U Verne neighborhood at figures rang' Ing up to $450 an acre. In the same column last week it waa recalled that in the winter of 1919 the Advance in a single issue had carried advertisements of 35 farm auctions. Inspection of the files reveals that many farmers .then-were advertising purebred hog and cattle sales. The Advance's job shop was kept busy at printing catalogs. One local breeder who later went broke contracted to pay another shop $1,000 for catalogs. It is strange to think that there are now perhaps more adults in the county who do not recall the times then than who do. A new generation has in .the meantime grown up. True, It was living them, but it had not yet' arrived at the age for realization of what was happening. The boys and girls, the young men and the young women of 20 years ago must now read history to find out, but not many of them do. At that most of them cannot but| know that there was a boom and that It was followed by disaster, for the present sad state of the family fortunes bears testimony to the facts. Someone ought to write a detailed history of that land boom in Iowa and the aftermath. Here is a rich subject ready to hand for the writers of the State Historical society, and the work ought to be undertaken before the .local newspaper files of the wartime and after have crumbled into dust. Not only as a mere historical record would such a book be valuable. It might help to save the people of Iowa from . Jt HODGEPODGE Wdtotor—A ttew «f nrtoM NA Bitten. FROM BRISTOW, OKLA, comes an Invlla- tlon to a cock fight at the "66 Club." The hand bill on which the Invitation Is -written says th» event will be an "8-entry concourse. Weights 4:12, 5, 6:04. Possible 9-cock Main. Plenty Hacking Before and After Concourse." The big event Is dated for June 24. WAY DOWN SOUTH there is • pleasant custom of having your hamburgers, hot dogs, and pop served to you In the car, while you wait, by pretty girl*. But they have been unionized. And th» union chiefs are demanding that the gals be put into slacks! It seems the stand owners had gone into competition to se« how short shorts they could put on the gals, and competition was doing no end of slashing. But if the union wants to keep dues coming in regularly it had bettor modify that slacks order, or use high* water slacks about the length, of short*. Now if the lunch stands on Nog. 18 and 169 would only put curb-service by gals in shorts, my, oh my, how the money would roll in. .

Officers I were . cl «™. president, Mrs. Jim Ackerman. vice, Mrs. Roy Jensen; secretary and treasurer, Mrs themselves when the next boom men's minds and urges them into nursuit of Illusory pots of gold. inflames reckless A Little Lesson in Life Insurance The other day a man in middle life known to this newspaper died. He left a widow and four children. The eldest child, a son, is married, and it takes all his earnings to support himself, his wife, and two small children. His young brother and two sisters are in school and living with their mother. The husband and father who died was a good man. He never abused his wife, and he provided well for his family. He was thoughtless in only one respect: Though he had but little property he left only $500 in life insurance—just enough for funeral expenses. Why do so many men who love wife and children take a chance like that? How can they rest in their graves when the family, deprived of natural support, must undergo untold misery to make ends meet, or must depend on charity? No man has a right to marry till he has first made as sure as is humanly possible that In case he is taken away he will leave to his dependents enough for a re»p«ctable living. Timely Topics "GDKSS I'LL HATE to do a little cheating," is an overheard remark. Seems the boy friend had been growing a little too sure of himself, and a date with the competition must have been called for. AND AN ITEM in the Rotary Rag repeats a last week's H->P item regarding a kiss, with the comment (of all things and fer hewlns sakes) "Did you ever hear this, one?" ; historian, Mrs. ttUPh Thonipson; chaplain, Sirs. Emjl Kraft. Plans for the annual children's party were made for June 28 at the schoolhouse. The following committees were apponted: entertainment, Mrs. Tim Ackerman, Mrs, Frank Householder; menu.

Plans we-e completed for the Guest day to bu held next week Tuesday. "Members of the Burt Fento'n, Whlttemore, Rlngsted, Irvington, Good Hope, and Seneca Aids are invited. The next meeting will be July 13 with Mrs Frank Flaig, and Mrs. A. D. Newbrough as hostesses. Seren on Fishing Trip- Mrs. J. M. Hulburt, of Glidden Hattle Sprank; Mrs. E. N. Jen- mains to consider the attitude of Senator Gillette, who, though he holds high office, is not much of a politician as politicians go, being far too honest and frank. Mr. Gillette 5s flatly NOT for Mr. Roosevelt for a third term, and he doesn't care who knows it. He was cagy only when he was asked what he would do in case Roosevelt were renominated. "I've always supported the nominee of the democratic party," he said. Which was not saying he always would. In fact Gillette's name is reputedly coupled with a bolt, if there Is one. In the national field Secretary Ickes is hot for Roosevelt. Nothing strange about that, since it is inconceivable that Mr. Ickes will have a cabinet job after 1940 unless the president is reelected. The case of Secretary Wallace is a bit different, though he wouldn't have a job either. Mr. Wallace has a presidential bee himself, but he is in no position to say so while Mr. Roosevelt remains potentially in the field. ,So Mr. Wallace, for the time being, has to be for Mr. Roosevelt, even if with fingers crossed. Another finger-crosser with a presidential bee in the bonnet is Postmaster-General Farley, supposedly wisest politician in the country. If the newspaper men have Farley doped out right, he is also not for Roosevelt, but ai above all a loyal satilite will without a murmur sink his own chances in the deep sea or something and whoop it up for renomlnation and reelection if Mr. Roosevelt says so. So that's the situation right now, or was when this screed was written last Wednesday. No one knows what Mr. Roosevelt is going to do but though there are good reasons why any president should keep his own counsel at this stage of an administration it begins to look as if the president wants another term and is pulling wires to that end. In truth Mr. Farley's recent tour of the country may not at all have been for himself as advertised, but may have been presideutially inspired as a "feeler." In any event it seems pretty clear that what is going on at present is a deliberate though undercover "feeling out" of public sentiment on a third term. But when you stop to think of it, isn't it a bit singular that so many leading democrats are silent, and that almost all of the admitted sentiment for a third term comes from men with jobs dependent on Mr. Roosevelt or from men seeking jobs? Life, the picture magazine, presents views of the Grand Coulee Dam, tells how much land the waters will irrigate, and inferentially gives Mr. Roosevelt praise as the man who brought it all about. But what lowan can look at the pictures without wondering why it was A good thing to reclaim so much soil, when we are already subsidizing agriculture to''keep It going? The colleges have in the last few weeks turned out thousands upon thousands of graduates. How many of them must join the army of the unemployed? How many have been taught in college how to create jobs for themselves in case none are offered? Their great- grandfathers and their grandfathers did it, and that without fancy educations. But can It still be done? It can, given the same energy, will, and spirit of self-reliance. The New York board of trade recommends broadening the income base. It will not be due. Economists agree that the situation calls for it, and everybody else does who studies the question; that is, everybody but the congressmen, who, though they know well enough that it ought to be done, will never do it, because it would tap millions who in resentment would vote another ticket. The Northwood Anchor must be a horrid anti-New Dealer. Commenting on a recent Treasury statement that if all the money now in circulation in this country were equally divided every man, woman, and child would get $50, it retorts that if the national debt were similarly divided every man, woman, and child would owe more than $300! The Chicago Tribune claims that among places visited by federal inspectors to make sure that the security taxes are paid are disorderly houses. People had got used to fed- oral prosecutions of Al Capone and his ilk to enforce the income tax laws, but this is a new one. Government old age pensions in due time for harlots! Mr. Kraschel now turns up among the third- term boosters. He would! But if Mr. Roosevelt can find no better backing in Iowa than a third-rate politician discredited alike by both major parties he had better not expect this state's delegation to next year's national democratic convention. Put your bets on Herring as the man who will have the most say about what Iowa will do. The U. S. supreme court has decided that after all the salaries of federal judges, including their own, are subject to income taxation, both federal and state. Which may be giving Chief Justice John Marshall.who ruled the other way, a dirty dig in the mid-ribs, but it sounds like sense to common folks. Every citizen, office-holder or not, ought to pay an income tax on all income in excess of a not too liberal living exemption. IT'S ONLY TOO easy to 'buy things. In fact about all that Is necessary-is to think that H j might be nice to own something pr other, and pop! there's the salesman. Dp|laj-dow.n and dollar-per-week, and therefrom upward. But if it is. not pushed too'far it's also a nice'way to own something that you couldn't afford right off the bat. MILWAUKEE POLICE arrested four boys for .taking a swim without bathing suits. That skinny dip business must hav* died .with the good old days, when only sissies wore a suit, and the last one In was a' polecat. Shades of yesteryears! Bet those cops never had any fun when they were young. However; the- present day "suits" are not too bulky to wear. WONDER IF THE KING and. queen: weren't more than a little impressed with; the .magnitude of this country? Wonder if the Empire-j State and other tall buildings in New York, didn't make their eyes pop slightly? Wonder If they don't have a little more respect for this country now than they ever had—a respect for a people who are doing things rather than living in the past? Wonder if it will have any effect? IT MUST HAVE BEEN Inspiring and at the same time appalling to the monarchs to visit this country. England Is an old country—and conservative. This country is new, willing to gamble and take a chance to win heavily—but with the loss potentially just as great. There is a tireless youthful energy In America lacking in England. The display of the fruits of that energy must have tired the king and queen as much as any other one thing. Nothing makes an older person feel older than a youngster burning up with energy tearing the heart out of things just for the exercise. AND THE GREAT DI8PLAY of greeting to the king and queen may fool the European nations. England, France, Germany, Russia, and Italy may now feel that the U. S. is on the side of the democracies because the ^ritanic rulers came here. But Americans love a show, a circus, and to parade the notables where those "just as good, by golly" can look them over and prove It to their heart's content — to themselves. That tremendous outpouring of populace came to see Wanted: A Book on the Wartime Boom In the Twenty Years After column last week it was noted that N. C. Rice had satirized the land boom then prevailing by marking out a .dozen stalls for curbstone real estators. In a Opinions of Editors Her- Who Elected Senator Herring? Webster City Freeman—He [Senator ring] said that after he had criticized the New Deal in certain respects in a New York address an lowan "welcomed me back to the republican fold." The senator observed, "that's nothing, republicans have been electing me to office the last six years." The senator is certainly frank and outspoken, something the people of Iowa admire in any public man. rim and His Delegates. Knoxville Journal—James Aloysius Farley has been on the march again in search of delegates to the democratic national convention a year hence. This time it is said that he sought them for his own candidacy. But who can tell about that? Jim is a devious guy. Just will turn moment'. the show, not to honor the king and queen or to fight England's battles. This country was on their side before now—not because of what England and France did, but because of what the dictators have been and are doing. HARRY HOPKINS, wonderboy of the New Deal, expects to buy a farm on the outskirts of Grinnell to carry on scientific farming operations. Let's see, was It Harry or Hank who cussed absentee ownership, and decried farm tenancy? Or does Harry think the New Deal is going to take it on the chin in 1940, and he's therefore picking out a nice place to fall down? Or is he going to claim to be a farmer to get the farm vote when, as, and if he runs for president? * • * • * SUNDAY IS FATHER'S day—in fact a day "or all men, whether fathers or not. It doesn't matter particularly that it was started by 'msiness interests just as the florists and vreeting card manufacturers promoted mother's day. Despite the selfish interests which may have promoted either of these days there is an ultimate good to be done. In fact it wouldn't be so silly to have a sister's day and a brother's day, so the family feuds could be Witched up for one of the 365. And fathers normally can do with a little sympathy. 'It's a well-known fact that mothers rule the house, which is undoubtedly proper. Father may be the disciplinarian, but mother tells him when and how much. Much is made of a mother's love and understanding—all of It proper . . . Not so terribly long ago in this county a young man faced the judge. The boy's crime was not morally great—but it was a crime, and punishment had to come. Behind the boy stood his father. The judge, as was proper, gave the youngster a lecture. Every word was a lash that cut deeply into the father, who took It without wincing, and when it was all over, In his own masculine way comforted the boy • . • Who's the greater — the ^ g crffil^berortue they make a T-D.
