There is, for example, a wide diversity of accounting methods between public and private systems. In some instances city governments provide municipal plants with legal, collection and bookkeeping services—and make no charge for them. In private operation, these are all sizeable items in the operating budget. Again, the law requires private systems to charge off depreciation and amortization annually, so that reports to the commissions and the public may show actual values, expenses and returns. A large number of public plants, being free from such restrictions, charge off nothing. An honest, impartial, factual report, made up by engineers who have no bias in either direction, would be Immensely valuable. No such report, on a national scale, has ever been made, and there is a definite need for one. It will have to take into account the varying cost of generation in different sections of the country—the best existing surveys show that where th-e cost, for example, at Bonneville in Oregon, will be 1.5 mills per horsepower, It runs as high as 4.3 mills on the Tennessee river. It will have to make adjustments for the various types of energy used—water, coal, oil, etc. The sooner the inquiry is initiated and completed, the more valuable it will be to all concerned. IS IT AN ANTIQUE ELECTION SYSTEM? Custom has gone by the boards in many lines of government activities and ideas of government In the past year or two, and there Is another one that usage has caused to become a part of our election system, but which seems to the writer to be slightly out of date. As Lee O. Wolfe of Tltonka has remarked, the outcome of most elections depend ndt on the old line republican or democrat voters, but on the mass of voters who act independently, or who may swing from one side to the other from election to election. They do not nec- esarily care more for one party than another, but are Inclined to vote in accordance with what they feel are the candidates qualifications, or as a result of conditions, or due to publicity and propoganda which might sway their opinions. Yet, In the primary elections, we have no choice but to vote, for one group of party candidates or another. A man must either be republican or democrat. He Is not given a choice of picking a slate from both parties; he must take the bad along with the good, AND CANNOT VOTE to help nominate men whom he favors on the other party ballot. Such a system leaves no place for an indepedendent voter or non-party man in the primary election. The choice of Independent thought is taboo. Perhaps there is merit in such a system, but we have yet to be convinced. Nobody hates a reformer any worse than another reformer. Belated arrival of Glen Buchanan.

Wheelock convicted of driving a car while Intoxicated and killing three people In an accident. The Freeman-Journal feels that the governor made a mistake, but there must have been some extenuating circumstances connected with the crime. Otherwise Wlv:elock would have received a more severe sentence. Unquestionably, the governor permitted his sympathy to Influence him In the matter, which he should not do," but that is only human nature and is too often indulged, considering the good of the state. It can at least be said that the governor exhibited considerable courage in the matter by taking such action during a political campaign when he is a candidate for reelection. Johnson Law a Mtetake Eagle Grove Eagle: The Johnson law. forbidding credit to countries defaulting in payments on their debts, recently enacted by congress, Ls proving a serious boomerang as it is blocking trade with those countries. Exports of our products Is the great need In our efforts to restore our normal economic prosperity. We have surpluses that can only be disposed of logically and profitably by exports to other countries. Brookhurt Is being paid $6,- OOC per year to promote trade with Russia, but the Johnson law has made all exports to that country impossible. It seems in many ways the best service congre&s could do for the country would be to adjourn. Congress' long session is becoming the same nuisance the special session of ih<' Iowa legislature became by its 127 days' session. * Stop Violations When Jailed Livcrmore Gazette: So we fear that there will be occasions when we will have to violate the code.

But little has been said concerning the hardships and disappointments endured by the patient, 62-year-old priest who has devoted more than 20 years of his life to th-e building of the shrine that attracts 16,000 summer visitors each year. About these hardships and dlsap- Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Potter were at Bancroft Friday on business. Will Runchey has an Infection in his arm and Charles Lindhorst is working 'or him.

He bellieves they are .synonymous with any worthy undertaking and he doesn't complain. Stones Taken He said, however, that $1,000 worth of souvenirs are taken from the little park each year by sightseers, and that more than 2.000 places in the skillfully handwrought edifices must be painstakingly rebulM. Delicate and rare minerals and stones collected In various parts of the United States, have been taken, and are almost impossible to replace. Father Dobberstein obtains his materials each year that his religious duties permit, by a trip of several months, is a truck, accompanied by a. helper. By exhaustive and often dangerous research work among cliffs and sparsely settled •areas, they unearth the ores and atones adorning the grotto. Ted loos Job Before using these stones, they must be polished, and carved, to the desired shapes, a tedious job of many months. Thus, when thoughtless tourlsta remove them, the task of repairing the damage is most discouraging and difficult. But Father Dobberstein hastens to explain that such tourists are In the- minority. "I am building the grotto for my fellow Americans." he said, "not for praise or recompense but for the honor of God and tile interest of my countrymen, long after I am gone and forgotten."
