I A LAUGH A DAY As Uie saying goes, laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you cry alone. There is something about a good, hearty laugh that eases up the burden of ordinary existence, and he who can provoke a good laugh, or a little merriment now and then, is doing his good turn. Professional laugh makers give many of us a pain In the neck, to speak in plain language. But the individual who exhales an air of pleasant and agreeable good nature, la doing all those with whom he comes In contact a favor. Laughter eases the tension, the worry and the seriousness of ordinary affairs. There might be room in some of the budgets being arranged for the unemployed to include another classification, and give those who are out of work but still capable of spreading good cheer a Job of promoting wholesome laughter. Another St. Patrick's day has arrived and departed, and although there may have been an overabundance of enthusiasm in some sections, Marshal Frank Green reports all was calm and peaceful hereabouts. There is probably no race with the combination of humor, sharpness and wit that the Irish possess, and it is probably for that reason that folks of all nationalities enjoy helping to wlebrate the day of the Shamrock's patron saint. • * • A neighboring paper had a good laugh on iteelf recently. Three lines of type from an ad about new spring suits somehow found their way into a creamery advertisement. The newspaper received a letter from a farmer which ran something like this: "I lost two darned good pigs last fall because of pneumonia, and I am afraid some of my cows are going the same way, but I seen your ad in your valuable paper which says that they now have suits of all wool for cows, will you please send me one for a holstein of about 76 bust measurement and horns. Allow a foot or so for a calf and I would prefer oxford gray." Something that is hard to find is * mend wno will forgive, and then forget to keep reminding you of it. ODD THINGS AND NEW—By Lame Bodo A THEORY OUT-OF-DATE Many politicians cling to the antiquated theory that a weekly newspaper must, be a partisan political organ. Some of them Just don't seem to be able to get it through their heads the conception of a community newspaper as a non-political, quasi-public community Institution. They can understand that a librarian who happens to vote the republican ticket can still conduct toe public library on a strictly non-partisan basis, but they can't tumble to the fact that an editor who happens to vote tiie democratic or republican ticket can run a newspaper on a policy which rises above partisan politics. Herein we discover another difference between the politician and the statesman. HITLER AND THE RIDDLE A fact not discussed in the United States, yet most important in the outcome of European affairs, is that France, England, Germany and Austria harbor the same dread of communism as practiced in Russia today. Hitler uses this fact as a trump card in his now difficult game of foreign relations. He knows that unrest •eethes below the surface of practically every country in Europe. Recently he haa seen it break out into action through rioting and civil strife, particularly in Austria, where the government is ready to fall into the bauds of the strongest party. Hitlerites say, "Nazism is the direct antithesis of communism, therefore anti-Nazi propaganda is communistic propaganda" which may sound to us like a childish riddle, but which, surprisingly, influences the governments of France and England to suppress any anti-Nazi demonstrations or propaganda. HKJer hopes to pour oil upon the troubled waters in Germany. He understands the psychology of hate—and how it unites those who bate. A Good Job for Rney Long News reports have it that an effort is being made to discover who is responsible for kicking over the brass cuspidors in the line of march between the House and the House office building at Washington. • • • There is considerable talk about the restoration of wild life in the United States, particularly hi the Mississippi Valley. We may be wrong, but there are some places that the government won't have to worry about. • • • Reply of the Week A short time ago the editorial columns of this newspaper slipped in a little remark relative to politics. From Whittemore comes the following observation and reply: "I see by your last issue you tell us elephants eat about 22 hours out of every 24, and wonder who is going to feed the O. O. P. elephant. If this be so, it would be grand if we had more elephants to consume the surplus and less Jackasses. Very truly. Carl Ebert." • • • A health expert says that proper diet will enable one to arrive at a ripe old age. Yes, it may, but you don't know it's the proper diet until you've arrived there. • • • Famous Last Line—Money cheerfully refunded.

Chaps who Just can't see that anything can be done. Suggest a worthy civic movement and up pops a canter. Advocate a campaign for better government, local, county or state and several canters get busy. Which leads us to wonder how George Washington ever got his job started and finally finished. And Lincoln, history records, heard canters who shouted "it can't be done" until hia cars became calloused to the refrain. And we might continue down to the deeds of much less moment and even to the small problems of local concern, and the canter still performs true to tradition. There are times when one doubts the use of endeavoring to run a fair, square and honest publication. But eur own conscience would probably feel worse if we ran it any other way. Too Many Post Office Holidays Northwood Anchor: A Mason city man, writing to Uie Dally Globe-Gazette, complained one day recently that he was unable to get his mall from the post office on Washington's birthday, a holiday, without extra expense. The writer has sympathy for him; the writer believes there should be mall facilities every day in the year just as there are telephone and telegraph facilities. Especially when Sunday and a holiday fall together should there be a day of service between. Since the Saturday half holiday in larger post offices has been inaugurated it has happened that post office patrons living on rural and city carrier routes have been deprived of their mail from Saturday forenoon until Tuesday forenoon. Such a lapse of service seems entirely out of keeping with the purpose for which post offices and the mail service were established that of affording prompt communication between persons located at different places. • • • Senator Patterson Spencer Reporter: The Reporter is pleased with Senator Patterson's announcement that he will make the race for the nomination for lieutenant governor in the June primaries on the republican ticket. In all of the essential qualifications for this high and responsible office there is no man in Iowa who stands higher than Senator Patterson. He is a born and bred Iowa dirt farmer. His entire life has been spent on a Kossuth county farm Both by education and experience he is highly qualified for this place. He Is a graduate of the state college at Ames. He served three terms as representative from Kossuth county and is in the middle of his second term as senator of the forty-seventh district composed of Kossuth, Emmet, Palo Alto, Dickinson and Clay counties. There are few, if any, men in Iowa as thoroughly grounded In a knowledge of our state constitution as Senator Patterson. He is a man of clean life and the highest Integrity. We make these statements from our own knowledge and acquaintance with the man and his work. Surely there was never a time showing a greater need for the exercise of those old-fashioned virtues of character, integrity and experience than the present and we should look for these traits in the men seeking pub- l P Recently we heard a woman describe her husband as "the patientist . best natured soul that ever lived." It sounds, also, like laziness. Peace is still raging among the Democrats of Iowa. A reader wants to know how in the world folks in a small city enjoy themselves during the winter months. He'd be surprised.
