HERRING FOR GOVERNOR r i? ^1! !ns (o look like Dnn T "rnor will have con«Id- erable difficulty in holding the republicans in line for him for governor this fall!. A number of the b;j| republican pacers in the state have come out against him and It is understood Uiat more are to follow. Some of the papers se-m to be very bitter in their antagonism to Mr Turner. The Mason City Globe-Gazette has taken a determined stand against Turner and speaks of him ns a demogogue and a chrap politician. We think that Earl Hall, the editor may through his Legion connections and his chagrin at the defeat of his pet candidate. Col- flesD, a Legion man, may be unduly prejudiced against Turner, but the fact remains that his paper is out for Herring. The Manchester Press, with Howard Rann as editor, has also come out for H-crring. The Press is one of the oldest republican papers in the state and very conservative. The Cedar Rapids Gazette, is another good republican papier that is rabid against Turner The •cow war" and other things are brought up Bgainst Turner. The Forest City paper is another republican paper out against Turner. Notwithstanding the fact that Colflesh has publicly announced that he will support Turner, it looks as though his following in the primary may not be led into the Turner camp. Herring has made a good governor and should be given a second term. Verne Marshall has the following to say in his Cedar Rapids Gazette: "Most of the counties In this section of the state snowed a decided preference for Colflesh and a G. O. P. new deal. Linn in particular demonstrated its lack of faith In Turner's panaceas, no doubt now will turn its strength to Governor Herring, in that it will not be alone; many other counties, normally republican, are likely to support Herring rather than Turner In November. No special political wisdom is required for that preference. There is no comparison between the two men. "The democrats are pleased by Turner's nomination. They wanted him nominated because they consider him a much easier man to beat next fall than Colflesh would have been. The latter is too courageous and direct to suit them. Partisan ties require that republicans who would vote for a nit-wit if he bore their political label now come to Turner's support, but a wiser policy for G. O. P. leaders of this state would be to frankly repudiate Turner as he has repudiated them, come out for Herring. "So that the inquiring may know from the jump- off, this column records itself now in favor of the reelection of Oov. Clyde Herring, should final returns reveal Dan Turner's nomination on the republican ticket. Had Colflesh been nominated to contest with Herring, The Gazette would have felt the state was sure to get a good governor. Now there to but one choice for those who want a fearless and competent governor and that choice is Herring." A generation back, the man who owned land, who had ft homestead, was on the way to prosperity. Nobodv thought much about the productivity of the land the chief tdea being to get as much a.s you could In that manner. land which w*s not destined to bo a Garden of Eden became populated, and som- harrlv sculs man nerd to .tick it out. even after their dream* of n home on the prn.rir must hnve been puhrrteed as fmelv a, the sand which eternally blew into their breakfast, coffe» The use of methods for irrigation have br-en severely criticized, as putting into production more land when we already have too much. Yes. we have too much perhaps, but much of what we have. like that in tlv Da koto*. Wyoming and Montana, is almost useless without plenty of water, and irrigation there is impossible Why not uli ize the land that can be farmed for farming, and If that which is worthless a!on,.

The bachelor's table was discussing the question the other evening of why a girl should be three years older than a boy of the same age (sometimes sire's older than that). An answer that fills the bill was found in a little booklet which said that when a girl begins to have 'boy problems, she can and does turn to her mother who with the sagacity of years, advises her with great wisdom. But a boy never would ask his father anything and goes his own conceited, untutored way-three years behind.

TITONKA NEWS SATURDAY NIGHT—MONDAY MORNING American habit* as w«U as political and social legislation, have fallen into a new groove in the past few years. Not only in the city, but In rural communities, methods of recreation and fun, relaxation that the human mind and body demand, have yielded to a new de&l. Saturday night is still Saturday night; In some homes it may mean nothing more than bath night again but for a majority, it brings that time of the week in which the wage earner and members of the household cut loose and enjoy a change of scenery, even if it la only a night of window shopping and mingling with other folks on the sidewalks of the nearest good-sized city. Public dances are no longer frequented only by the very young; you may find the parents there and they are hsving just as good a time as their sons and daugh- Yet it is not a case of being plea.sure mad. it Is simply that the public is learning to enjoy itself from the youngest to the eldest, to a greater extent than ever before. And clergymen report that church attendances have shown an increase, and that church memberships curing the past year have shown a surprising increase Relaxation on Saturday night seems to be conducive to a "lore active mental and religious life in all respects. And Monday morning, although the laughs and pleasant memorks of Saturday night may be on their way into the dimness of the past, the mind and body still have benentted, and the week gets away to a better start BREW oo Followers of Blackstone, and we don't refer to the big cigar, gathered at Lake Okobojl. during the past week end.

We heard Bill McDonald tell a yarn the other day about eating crow and Bill had some strong argument in support of his theory that crow should be good to cat. BiU says you never see a dead crow on the highway, which goes to prove that crows are smarter than pheasants, chickens and other animals that we eat Then according to Bill, the crow eats nothing but grain and good, wholesome foods, which should make for good eating. But althugh his arguments sounded pretty convincing, we'll br-t n plugged nickel there Ls seldom anv crow on the McDonald table.
