SWIMMING POOL SUPERVISION A little six year old boy was drowned in the municipal swimming pool at Estherville last week and the management of the pool is being criticized for the tragedy. It is said that there wa.s no life guard present at the tim? of the drowning. At the lime that the pool was built In 1927, a. little lad had been drowned in the Des Moines river and it was thought that with a supervised swimming pool all such tragedies would be impossible. The Estherville Enterpise says that the people have had supervised swimming, "but it se-ms that of late there has been negligence In the supervision. So much so that- there are many who say it is close to criminal negligence, not on the part of the attendants, but those who employ them. There are times when there is not suf- flcent help at the pool and this death happened right at one of these times. The public seems to be aroused over the fact that the youngsters are not given better supervision. They send their children to the \ pool with- the understanding that there are life guards on hand to take car? of them and they expect that service." It Is always easy to criticise and quite often the criticism Is unjust, but certainly when swimming pools are built to protect children from drowning and parents entrust their children to the pool in the belief that they "Dicks" Attacks Ar* Welcome EmmetEburg Democrat: Senator L-. J. Dickinson hns been announced as one of the principal speakers for his party in the state grneral election campaign. Such an announcement may be just cause for congressional Investigation to determine if Democrats are hand-picking their Republican opponents in the forthcoming oratorical tilts. In other words, no selection of a Republican spokesman could be more favorable to Iowa Democrats. "Dick" has overworked his army of secretaries in attacking every New Deal measure now helping Iowa business men and Iowa farmers. Apparently the Republican national committee feels he deserves this chance to croon a swan song. Mark Sullivan is Fair Webster City Freeman: Mark Sullivan says It would be a good thing to reduce the democratic majority in congress, but a bad thing to give the republicans a majority In other words. Mr- Sullivan is of the opinion that President Roosevelt should have congress with him the last two years of his first term. For the genera! welfare of the' country, that looks like good sense. However many republican congressmen have cooperated with the president and voted for most of the laws he wanted. These republicans deserve reelection, a fact which the democrats generally should recognize. A College Education Fort Dodge Independent: The editor of this paper was one of those fortunates—or unfortunates— who po* a college education, including a degree. And we have spent most of the time since "getting over" it. Not but that college did us some good, perhaps. But we have had to forget most, of the things we learned there, and one by one we have had to let go of the attitudes we acquired hi college. Whatever we know today, and whatever chance we have of amounting to anything is direcMy due to hard digging, and not to what we got out of college The Sales Tax North wood Index: Not a few newspaper and more pubic speakers aie declaring that the sales tax is really a replacement tax. Attention is called to the fact that between four and five million dollars will pour into the state treasury during the present month of July. It is claimed that money derived from sales taxes will greatly relieve the taxpayesf. That may be so. It seems, however, that the proof or the disproof of the slatement will lie in a comparison of the two years' tax 1DD THINGS AND NEW-By Lame Bode •will be guarded from danger by those in charge of the payments—this year and last. We should know at the pool, there should always be a life guard or some one ' • at the pool at all times wten children are in the pool. The Algona pool which was patterned after the Estherville pool, has been carefully supervised we think and the lives of the thousands of little ones have been properly protected by life guards. HITLER, THE MURDERER Clarence Harrow last week called Hitler, the German dictator, the most dangerous man in the wortd, and said that he should be killed for the good of Europe and the world In general- We think that Darrow spoke truly. Hitler ia apparently more dangerous than Kaiser Wll- helm was In his palmy days when he thought he was ordained of God to rule the world. The Kaiser undoubtedly was so egotistic that he believed that only himself 'TIS fit to povem the world and if the world failed to recognize what was good for them, It was his duty to force his ideas on the world by force of arms with terrible slaughter. The World War with its millions of dead was the result of the Kaiser's egotism. Is it possible that the world will allow another egotist to wreck nations and again kill off the young men to satisfy his own lust for power? During the past week Hitler has ruthlessly killed perhaps a hundred of the prominent mvn vt Germany because he thou ght they tlireatcned his supreme power In Germany, or had said something in criticism of his ruthless rule in that country. It seems that anyone who had questioned his actions were dragged from their homes and faced a, firing squad without any semblance of trial. Many were shot down In their own homes and In some instances their wives were also butchered without any reason. Has the world returned to barbarism after hundreds of years of civilization? It is such egotists as Hitler and the Kaiser that, cause wars and they should be exterminated as ruthlessly a-> they kill any who dare to oppose their ambitions. Hitler dares not go anywhere without a heavily armed bodyguard and even at that he will likely die by an assassin's bullet. Germany and the world would be well rid of Hitler.

WNU Berrlc* next tax paying time. Wants NRA "Ditched" Estherville Vindicator: The administration is weakening on its NRA program. All hail. But why not come out flat-footed and say it's a complete flop and go back to where we started. President Roosevelt is open minded enough, or should be to do this. He said on the start that some of his efforts were experiments and if not found workable would b? rescinded. It is an opportune time now to cancel the NRA effort, while public sentiment is at fever heat against it and the President must know by this time that a law can't be enforced when the public believe it to be oppressive. • • • Non-Partisan Primary BaCot Titonka Topic: If Iowa had a primary ballot without a party designation, democrats would not be nominating republicans or republicans nominating democrats. It would give the voter an opportunity to vote for the official he believed would be best fitted for the office. For instance, if four men were candidates for county attorney, the primary ballot would contain the names of all four men. If the voter was a democrat he would vote for one only and that candidate would be a democrat; and also, in the same way, if he were a republican or a Faxm-Laborite. It gives the electorate an opportunity to vote for the best men for officials and his choice of candidates. • • • No Working Men Here? Titonka Topic: Reports come from Algona that a new labor organization has been formed and that a new Farm-Labor ticket will be presented to the voters of the county at the November election. The Topic has nothing authentic in reference to the new organization. But with two golf clubs going strong at. the county seat there would not be sufficient number of real working men at the hub to form an organization. A big percentage of th? citizens of Algona are golf fiends instead of hard working men. The lawyers, preachers, editors, ritir-rd business men and farmers would not be classed as laboring men—and wher;- would the timb'.'r come from to form an organization? The Man About Town Says IT MAKES l)S DANCED MAD! It makes us good and mad. sometimes, and we wondered if anybody else ev:r feels that way. We mean one evening a short time ago when we came around the corner of a downtown MrwA, nft-r Kupper, and found three Mate cars parked there. Each wu-s new, one was a V-8, the second a Pontiac straight 8, and the third was a new Ch vvie, and each one \vas from a different department of the state government.

Is It any wonder that Howard Fredericks, the John Deere man, is a successful salesman? Here's an example of one of his lines.

One of the spectators who took keen interest in the act of Jumping in bar- lels at the fourth celebration was Velma Glllespie. She was scrubbing the porch with the pail of water setting on a lower step when unconsciously she placed her foot in the bucket of water and went rolling down the stair. Velma expects to practice the act for perfection but Is reluctant, about public appearances. Two Algona boys provided a Grove Cochran act for the Doan basebal team Sunday.
