A BROKEN LEG The fact that a truck was puked doable, lust week, might nave cost Algona the life of one of its youthful citlwns. As it was, a nine year old boy escaped with a broken ankle when struck by a car in an unavoidable accident. The business streets are narrow; ft is impossible to change that. And double parking is usually necessary in the ease of pleasure ears, when many occupants stop for bnt a moment. But trucks which are making deliveries to stores could. If they were inclined to. make good use of the alleys. Many of them do; if all did. the traffic problem would be helped a lot. Tel Me people knew the tnrlh and the H safe. uneote.

If R"s » guessing contest there at least is a great deal of wisdom mixed in with it, and that's more than can be said for the Hoover administration, when all of the guesses were wrong. The senator also says "we should remember and deeply realize that regardless of all the socialistic schemes that have been tried in the world, in the end nearly everybody has to work for a living." From what we know almost everybody around here has what narrowed horizon, and a desire to serve the purpose of One political setup, Irrespective of its bad points or its Weaknesses. An interest hi good government, however, has no part* lines to hamper it. And somehow or other we think that the tendency on the part of young people today Is to think In terms of good government more than in terms of politics.

ODD THINGS AND NEW—By Lame Bode TRADE—MAKER OF WEALTH Harvey Ingham, writing In his column in The Des Moines Register last week, declared that nothing is plainer than the fact that trade is the maker of wealth. Mere production does not spell wealth, he also adds. Why then, asks Mr. Ingham. Is the whole world go- Ing on the theory of a shut-In market, cutting off trade until the word "export" and "import" are nearly lost to our vocabularies. He concludes that the whole thing is a theory of Isolated military nationalism. This situation in the world fcave heard, exactly why it is necessary for the United dates to cut down production through a planned system of agriculture and increased consumption, by government aid and civil projects giving men work. If we are to lead a shut-in Ife, it Is necessary that we keep the production down to what we can use, so that the producer of raw foodstuffs can get a decent price for his product. a criminal violating the law." The statement Is quaint enough to be worth repeating and it is undoubtedly as true as It is quaint. It only goes to show that we are living In a time of great and rapid changes. • • • Sees Reprttfcatt Revival FOrest City Summit: Hundreds of republicans of Iowa gathered in Des Moines recently. The gathering heard some pep speeches like those before a college football game and drew potential candidates like flies around a molasses barrel. But what was really done toward rehabilitating the party was performed with dark lanterns guiding the faithful about the hotel rooms where the rendezvous was. Private conversation among those present did not sound exactly like harmony, but here was no open break. One thing stood out plainly—there will be a political campaign in Iowa in June and a mighty race in November. Every time we look at the snails In the gold flsft ac- qTiarium hi front of the Summit office we are reminded of the Iowa legislature. Like Father, Unlike Son OrtonvUle Independent: It looks like the beginning of the end of Col. Charles A. Lindbergh's six-year reign as America's Hero No. 1. Thousands of Minnesotans remember Congressman Lindbergh, Hero Lindbergh's father, as one of the state's most sincere and effective critics of social Injustice, of economic inequality, and of governmental graft and corruption. He devoted his life to a bitter and ill-timed fight against unfair monopoly and unhealthy concentration of wealth. He was the champion of fair play and. odds and ends ___ _ _ tmtil one gets too old to thru! at the flre whistle i match pennies to see who gets away . . the way. Jim also likes to match for meals. by B. B. Tournament Note* John Haggard tocfc up his station, Saturday evening directly in front of the Ledyard cheering section. The racket behind him must 'have made the (tame more interesting. John must fcnow all those yells by heart cow. His son, Hero Lindbergh, flew from New York to Paris in 33 hours, during the summer of 1927. His stunt placed him on a pinnacle of publicity where he had since remained. Taking the advice of shrewd friends, he declined to go into the movies or to permit his name to be used on motor oil or shaving lotion endorsements. At a salary reputed to have been as high as a quarter of a million dollars one year, he became "technical advisor" to one of the two great syndicates which, between them, monopolized the air business and shut out competition by buy- tag Influence at Washington. He married t»e hetrtss of a fortune which had been accumulated by the very methods which Congressman Lindbergh had spent his life condemning. Now that an attempt Is being made in Washington to clean up some of the putrid mess which resulted from the machinations of the air monopoly. Hero Lindbergh appears, naturally enough, as a spokesman for what Congressman Lindbergh would have called the "vested interests." There is a bit of Irony In the emergence of the son of one of Minnesota's most, sane and far-sighted . , se an ar-sge Casting a pensive eye we espied a very pretty blonde congressmen, a couple of decades later, as the champion • - * ~ "~ ~~a«v.»« w "^-ij 1 t^*cn,y uiiruuo sitting in the bleacher section.

If Collins doesnt teach Adrian Burmelster to play the flute or piccolo or something before the next tournament he will have missed doing a great service Burmie likes to play a tune on the whistle from the timekeeper's table, whenever a substitution is made but he's always off key. Duane Dewel seemed to be continually in the path of stray basketbaUs. But a newspaperman is used to dodging objects, so no damage was done. The people who put on the tournament here think of everything. They forget to provide a place for the boys who have to take notes and carry on a litUe reporting There's plenty of room for another table there, if one eould be found, and we're certain the boys (and girls V1<M1 vm«i ~ J J _ , . , , "* O***"•• appreciate thla courtesy. How about of one of the conditions which hia father fought so •* musly to eradicate. There is an element of tragedy, i the fact that Hero Lindbergh has chosen to bita much more than he can possibly chew. Son Lind_ would have done better, ethically, at least, had he followed more closely in the foosteps of Father Lindbergh. • * • Baom is Candidate in 5th Lakota Record: F. W. Eaum called at the office Wednesday and announced his candidacy for the office of county supervisor in the fifth district on the Democratic ticket. He la getting nomination papers signed and will soon start his campaign. To date he Is the only candidate for the democratic nomination. Mr. Baum has lived in this district most if not all of hs life. He has always been a democrat and has always taken an active interest in civic affairs. • • • Roosevelt A Big Help Webster City Freeman-Journal: That this is going to be a hard year for republican candidates for congress now^seems apparent!!, due to the wonderful popu- " 1J " " ~ the election . at Doc Fox's office. The boys, laughing up their sleeves, left Tony there, and he didn't waJce up until 11:30 that evening, to find everyone gone. ^ A neat little booklet, entitled "The Merry Mixer" cama to the desk. la it were a number of recipes, and descriptive lines about each of them. A few are here quoted: Dry Martini—a famous tongue unparcner Elephant's Ear—inside dope. Maiden's Prayer—knows all the answers. Third Rail—w*o threw that switch. Tarzan—dash it down then climb a tree—you can do it. Corpse Reviver—will get you out o f September Morn—things will look twice as bright. Corpse Reviver—will get you out of any hole. Absinthe—makes the heart grow fonder. The Earthquake—even a building would fall for this All in all. the booklet waa quite a lesson in flzacal culture, if you'll pardon us for punning a bit at this time • • • We wish we could tell you all haw Joe Bloom learned the commoner American words upon hia arrival in New York. Ask any Klwanian, they'll tell you about it Harry Hull has a new joke about bridge. It's a little lengthy, so he has it typed. He got it from a bum that he picked up and carried to Swea city. (No it was not a Swea City fellow). Another guy for whom I'd gladly sharpen up an ax. "This ia an election year. The republican party will attempt to stage a come-baclc. The democrats are going to hold the fort if they can. It looks like a lively summer ahead. "Much interest will center in state politics, but the real nght will undoubtedly come in the congressional districts. The popularity of President Roosevelt will be the main reliance of the democratic politicians. It is the hope of leaders m that party that this will pull the democratic ticket through in congressional districts so that the president will retain hia working strength at Washington. 'The republicans are quite docile. Senator Lester Dickinson la out with hia bludgeon, battering away at the administration. A^ide from him, we hear little eomplant. The republican press is silent except to go along with the president." The Storm Lake paper states the situation correctly, it seems :o the Freeman-Journal. However, republican congressmen who have backed Rooeeveit and his program ought to receive the support of republicans who are for the president, and the democrats ought to be generous enough to also support such republicans. Congressman Fred C. Giichrist, of this district, haa uniformly backed the president's program, giving him more loyal support than some Iowa democratic congressmen have, notably Pred Bierman of the Fourth district.
