THE NEW NAVY Shipbuilders were happy last week. The United States was to plunge Into the naval armament race with gusto. Although In the past we have felt that preparing for peace by building big ships did not necessarily mean that peace would result, we are willing to grant that there are tunes when & big navy can give John Q. Citizen a comfortable feeling especially If fireworks start popping in other quarters of the globe. The only danger Is that with a big navy, and a formidable military set up there has been a tendency In nil nations to make use of the weapons. But ttie V. B. attitude is not one of aggression, whlcW is the Wg redeeming feature of the plan. One other possible drawback Is that other naval powers, witnessing the TJ. 8. move, will simply be stirred to greater efforts In naval construction, and the world will see Its greatest armament race In the history of sea-going construction. BIRTH RATE DECLINING? Dr. O. E. Baker .speaking at the Farm and Home week at Ames, seemed quite alarmed at the fact that statistics show, so he says, that if the present birth rate decline continues for 10 years longer the tTnited States cannot maintain its present population without heavy immigration from abroad. Births have been decreasing at the rate of about 60,000 a year, the senior economist of the TJ. 8. department of agriculture said, and if this failure to reproduce continues there will be more unemployment in the future than there has been In the past. One assumes that he reaches this conclusion by figuring that there will be less consumption. However, it is possible that Dr. Baker Is unduly alarmed. Although there will be less consumption, there will also be fewer persons out of work. If machines are to replace manpower in the future, as they have In the past, and If we do not figure out some means to pass the fruits of the machines on to everybody, there Is no use In plumping for a higher birth rate. The aspect of the birth rate situation which Dr. Baker did not touch on, possibly because It Is a controversial point, is the fact that the birth rate remains high among families where the offspring cannot be supported, but is dropping In the homes where children can be raised amid pleasant economic surroundings, and fitted to take a definite place in the world. In other words, as is the case in some Instances In our own county, the large families "on the county" continue to increase. The World Almanac shows that the birth rate of the United States increased US per cent from 1910 until 1920, and 18.1 per cent from 1920 unto 1930, leaving little ground for Dr. Baker's fear that we are committing race suicide. We do not need to worry about more citizens, but should spend some thought in raising better citizens. There should be some form) of control by the state to prohibit the reproduction of human beings who are tainted with hereditary diseases detrimental to the indivduals and to the state. It is the offspring of these homes who have helped in no small degree to cause unemployment, tte necessity for Increasing poor relief, and a declihe In the birth rate from the homes of wore solid, substantial citizens. AMERICA'S COUNTRY NEWSPAPERS By Professor John H. Casey School of Journalism, University of Oklahoma Whltout Its newspaper the small-town American community would be like a school without a teacher or a church without a pastor. In the aggregate, the country newspaper determines the outcome of more elections, exeits a greater Influence for constructive community progress, is read longer by more members of the family and constitutes, with its millions of circulation, and quadrupled millions of readers a better advertising medium than any other group of newspapers or periodical publications. When properly conducted, it cultivates so Intensively its home news field that city dallies, farm Journals and general magazines circulating in the same territory become only secondary Influences. Through service to its community, the country newspaper will not merely survive; it will continue to flourish as the most representative, most distinctive, most wholesome type of Journalism America has produced. (Sooner State Press). ' SUPPRESSING THE NEWS Several months ago The Algona Upper Des Molnes printed an editorial commenting on the fact that the news of the amoebic dysentery epidemic which originated In Chicago during the Worlds Fair last summer was not made public until some time later, and that as a result, thousands of Worlds Pair visitors were laid open to the disease without knowing a (To date, 14 deaths In Chicago, and 31 deaths elsewhere. Have been traced directly to the Chicago sources of Infection). The Chicago Dally Times recently replied to the editorial in this paper, printing it In full, and adding its own comments. The Chcago Dally Times throws more light on the matter. "News cannot be suppressed until it is known," says the Times. "The Times received its first word of the epidemic on the afternoon of November 9, and printed the story on Nov. 10." The paper then goes no to say that the official records now disclose that it became evident to the city medical authorities that the outbreak and infection which occurred during, June, July and August was certainly known by Sept. 1, but that the Chicago city physicians did not make the outbreak public until two months inter. The Chicago Herald and Examiner, Chicago Tribune, Chicago American and Chicago Daily News also took the city health authorities to task in recent issues of their publications. We are extremely happy that Chicago newspapers themselves did not deliberately suppress the stories; and as In so many instances, public officials have forfeited their right of public support by withholdng from the public the news which v:as rightfully theirs. * AN EXPLANATION IS DUE The Iowa public—the tax paying public in particular —will await with interest the story of just how the men in charge of the Iowa exhibit at the Worlds Fair could spend $171.04 on a bushel of corn which Senator Patterson of Kossuth estimated would cast about 35 cents. Senator Patterson's statement that, the cost of the Iowa exhibit at the Worlds Pair was a "gyp" made front page- headlines, Sunday, and caused plenty of comment. If there was any mishandling of funds, the blame alike falls on both parties for both a republican and a democrat were named to the committee to handle the Iowa exhibit. $11,415.62 was pnid to Jenter Exhibits, Inc., New York, for putting up the exhibit; $9,000 to a Ontury of Progress for exhibit space; $300 to u Dos Molnts architect; $171.04 for the corn exhibit; $2,379 fur IXT dit-m expenses of exhibit managers; and $208.23 lor miscellaneous expenses. It would certainly stem that Senator Patterson's contention that the Iowa public was gypped was correct, and the mtn who had charge of the exhibit might do well to explain the expenditures. AN INTERESTING IDEA The proposal to organize a Kossuth County Roosevelt club contains a new Idea that is worth thinking about. As explained by the sponsors of the gathering which Is to be held next Tuesday evening in the high school auditorium, the new organization is not intended to be a hide-bound Democratic combine, but a group of Kossuth folks who believe in the administration's views and President Roosevelt's program. This fact will not, it was al^o explained, intan that the group will be interested only in furthering the cause of the Democratic party us a unit, but will function in the belief that the administration's program la intended as a general benefit to all. With regard to local politics, we have been informed that it will not necessarily support a complete ilate of candidates from one party, but endeavor to aid the individual candidates who teem best quaJilud for the cilices. The organization as outlined will certainly appeal to those hundreds of voters wl.o are solidly back of the administration, and still believe that in local politics there- Should be no party liniv.

The same thing holds true with store buildings, window displays and the general appearance of all places of business.

Why'.' Why should the state pledge itatlf to old-age pensions? Why must a man spend every penny he earns during his life? Why put a premium on carelessness arid reckless expenditure? What are we coming to, anyway? Have the days of prudence and foresight come to an end? Are the ways of thrift and industry to be cast aside? If a human being has lived a life of thoughtless abandon, or if he has been unlucky in the way of lift-, why ihouJd he not be recorded simply as a dependent? • * • Political Rambling* Tiionka Topic: The hell raiser for agriculture voted no on the Roostvelt devaluation of the gold dollar in the senate.

Dear Sir: Having read your articles in the Post for many years past with interest, the writer was especially in- It-rested in the one found In the Issue of the 6th inst. *•* Much has been said about the fact that the Republican aprty was in power 50 of the 72 years from 1860 to 1932 (and generally It was done in a boastful spirit) and that during that time the Democrats had but two presidents, which reminds one of the fable of. the mother fox and lion, the former boasting of her family of nine little cubs, while mother lion had but one whelp, to which mother lion scornfully responded "but that one Is a lion." During those years of Republican Incumbency we had the disgraceful 1m- peachment trial of Andrew Johnson, the BGJS Shepherd scandal, (he President Grant, nepotism, the Star route icandaLs, and finally the Teapot Dome which outclassed them all for heinous- irss. There was nothing of the kind during the Cleveland and Wilson administrations, be it said to their credit. The conduct, and attit-jde and the preachments of the Republican party were such as to prompt Owlght Morrow to .say in his campaign for the U. S. senate in N«w Jersey in 1930, thfct if the Republican party wants to claim the credit lor the prosperous times it must take the blame for reverse conditions but the would-be astute politicians try to u-11 us that conditions in Europe were responsible for our depressed and compressed condition while the facts are that we were doing pvet- ty well in this country until the" debacle of 1929, which sunk us so low that we took Europe down with us lower into the slough of despond.

It seems that Mr. Kresensky has listened to the call of the wanderlust, that siren that ures so many of us to the out of way places, and consequently he has had many addresses for his mail.
