THE NEW MORTGAGE MORATORIUM A few weeks ago after the Frnsier bill providing for n moratorium on fnrm mortgages hnd been passed by both housrs of congress and was awaiting the president's signature, Attorney A. Hutchison of AJgona. wrote a letter to President Roosevelt, asking him to withhold his approval. Mr. Hutchison took the ground that the bill if it became n IHW would more or less nullify all contracts and confiscate to a certain extent the hard- earned money of many people who had Invested their life savings in farm mortgages from which income they expected to be able to live in their old age. Furthermore, Mr. Hutchison and many other able attorneys consider that the bill will prove unconstitutional when reviewed by the supreme court. Also it is thought that It will hurt th? credit of all farmers when they apply for a loan on their farms. Many people when they have saved up ft few dollars will hesitate to loan their hard earned savings when it might be a question that they would have to scale down the amount when it came to repayment, also with a chance that the agreed interest rate might also be scaled down. It would look to be a poor investment by many. Iowa farm lands have long been regarded as the best security in the world for loans, and this law, which was signed by President Roosevelt notwithstanding the protest, made by Mr. Hutchison and many others, is liable to place all landowners in an embarrassing position when in need of a loan on their land. This is the position taken by Mr. Hutchison, who by the way is a republican. On the other hand some of the attorneys who are democrats and who have made a study of the Jaw, claim as does President Roosevelt that the new law will be of great benefit to both the borrower and the lender. Of course the democrats at least are Inclined to look favorably on anything that President Roosevelt approves. Most all of us will give President Roosevelt credit for doing everything in his power to aid the farmers in their distress, but honest contracts may not be violated with impunity, and it amy be well to see Just how the new law works out In practice before pass- Ing final judgment. Mr. Hutchison received a polite acknowledgement of his letter to the president from the White House as follows: "White House, Washington, July 7, 1934: Dear Mr. Hutchison: Your letter of June 22, to the President has been received. He has asked me to thank you for writing and for your kindness in ssuding him your comments and views. I am enclosing for your Information a copy of the statement issued by the president at the tim-j he signed 8. 3580. Very sincerely yours, Louis McHow, Secretary to the President." It may be noted here that both Iowa Senators, Dickinson and Murphy as well as Congressman Gilchrist voted for the Frasier bill. EVERY SEVENTH PERSON ON i GOVERNMENT PAYROLL One of the many thngs for which the recent republican administration was criticized was the many office holders authorized for ail sorts of jobs. It was said that many of the offices were created for the purpose of giving the congressman's friends jobs and were mere sinecures. The democrats in both state and nation won out in the great landslide of 1932 partly on their promise to abolish many of these offices and look after the taxpayers' interests by economizing in every way possible. It is now stated that the number of people on the government payroll or supported by the government has steadily increased until one out of <very six persons in the United States is now employed by or is being being supported by the government. Of course the many people out of employment has added an immense number to those now beng supported by the government. And then the many officials needed to supervise the many new bureaus and corn-hog schemes. Then tlvre are the eld age pension investigators and the hordes of officials of many kinds necessary to .supervise the many ramifications of the New Deal. There was a time when only one person out of every fifty was on the government payroll. Then it got down to one out of every twenty. Now one cut of every six is supprU-d by Uncle Sam. In 1933 twenty cents out of every dollar of national income went for tuxes in the United States. It would seem now that the govt-rnnn-nt h,is tak-.-n an active interc-st in all of the bu-au-i.s ir..stitulion.s tf ihe country, it is not a lout; .stf-p for all private enu-rpri^-.s to b<- taken over by the government and then \v. will all go on the government payroll and not have to worry about where the next, meal is coming fiom. It is true that there is now a growing U-t-hng that the govrnment i.s bound to take can- of us and any extra fttort to 1 ok out for our-e'.vt.s is more or lets a wa.ste of energy. This feeling of cour.-.e kills off any ambition to get ahead and lay up something lor old at'-- We know the .state will take care of us and why worry? NBA SHOULD BE APPLIED TO FARMERS Oi late !,:.trc ha.-; be«.n a grown;? <iiMu;-t>- lor the NRA in the .small towns of lowu. where the .small business man ii hampered and hedged around wi'h MJ ina!>y tie tails in the conduct of IILS biuir. us ,<-o that he hardly knows just what he !-•> allowed to do and what t.i- LS not allowed to do. Il Is certainly a big job f;r the government to manage ai! of the tmail bu.smt.s-s institutions in the country. Over at Eiiuneubujg the day three automobile dealers were fined $500 between them lor allowing greater trade-in values on eld cars than is provided for in the NKA code. At Spencer a talesman for an auto company paid a fifty dollar fine for selling a uttd car for more than the figure allowed by u.t- cod-. It set-nib that it has got to the point where a man can't pay an agent a comjr.i^ion to sell his old car for nun. Has the government reached th.- stage where they can make a price for all the old cars in t:.e c-untry and not allow them to be .sold lor more than tilt price named by U.tmV No wonder that Pieadei.l Koosfvelt needed a vacation from hio dunes when he and Hugh Johnson have to attend to ail the n.inute details of all the small bus;nesi institutions of th-- country It is said that John- bcn ;s about t-o take a lung neeueii vacation aiso, and it is hop:d by ni&ny that u.e i Beaton may be an extended one.

There is no sense in giving those who have loaned money the dirty end of the deal. Th:re should be fair play all around. Capital is not going- where it cnn't have a square deal. Don't forget that. And also a man having money to loan is not a criminal on account- of it, and any organization, large or small, that has had faith enough in the pecpl? to loan money on Iowa property at a low rate of interest is entitled to protection and their money when the papsr falls duo. The sentirmnt now against capital is similar to the sentiment ariinst t! c ?ailmar!s <everfll years ago. Then it was popular to say the railroads were robbing the public and consequently they should be harrassed and controlled and 1-glslat'ed against. Every tin horn politician in tho?e days, who had been a failure at everything he tried to do, often succeeded in getting into the ICR- irlature or in congreas and th-rn he forthwith proceeded to get a bill passed to make it more difficult for the railroads to function. This was kept up until the rail- rond.s were on the verge of bankruptcy and some forced out of busin-rsp. That, i.s what is going to happen to all concerns in Iowa that have money to loan. They will not be legislated out of buMness but- will quit doine business here and go elsewhere where they can g-st an even break with other lines of endeavor. • • • New Dfal Mnst Work Snc Sun: If there Is one thine outstanding in the recent Literary Digest poll it is the indication that President Roosevelt has lost some favor in agricultural states and pained in the industrial states since November. 1932. The poll as a whole indicates that people are still favorable to the New Deal, more favorable, in fact, than when Roosevelt was elected. That should be encouraging to the administration. It indicates an attitude of giving the Roosevelt policies a further try-out at least. But the slight defection in the great middle west and south may be a straw to indicate which way the wind is blowing — or it may be a temporary protest that will soon blow over. Political prognosticators will take different viewpoints of the matter—depending largely upon whether the prognostlcator himself is favorable or opposed to the New Deal. A slight increase in the price of farm products has b?en offset by a greater increase in the price of things the farmer has to buy, and therein lies the dissatisfaction, so we are told. If the price of farm products continues to rise, much of the grumbling will be quieted. But if there is any serious and prolonged slump in agricultural prices— well, then the New Deal is apt to be over as far as the middle west farmer is «inrprned. • • • HKIer Runs lo "The Old Man" Sac Sun: Af-olt Hitl-sr has dene a lot of bragging about his power over the German people. Any opposition has been put down with a mailed fist, thus far. But even when execution of political opponents was at its height last week, and the "revolution" seemed to be definitely squelched, Herr Hitler jumped into an airplane and flew as fast as he could to consult Old Man Von Hindenberg. Many a time in the past has Mr. Hitler felt his own self-sufficiency. Von Hindenberg was an old fossil, he contended. So the Old Man was pushed aside. But Hitler was smart enough to realize that in his ruthless campaign of suppressing his opponents he needed help and advice from some "older head," or Hitlerism would soon be over. Certainly he realized he could not get away with a plan of simply chopping off the heads of his opponents. This is the twentieth century — even in Germany — not the sixteenth. This is not the first time that an ambitious young upstart, flushed with temporary success and blinded by the applause of the multitude has found it necessary to run to the Old Man in a critical time. It is not always the dictator of a great nation that is Involved. Sometimes it's Just some American youth and the stakes may be rather minor and psrsonal. Thank God for the Old Man, whoever he might be. This old world needs him as never before. • • • Dickinson Wants Showdown Ringsted Dispatch: Senator Dickinson last week said the state campaign in Iowa should be made on the national issue of the New Deal and not on the state issues already announced. Perhaps Senator Dickinson believes the state ifsues announced by the republicans are flimsy or ho wishes the New Deal issu? fought out in Iowa this year rather than two years from now when he comes tip for re-election. The senator has been on: of the strongest opponents of the New Deal in congress and maybe he does not relish .standing on his record two years hence. Any- v.ay he Is at state republican headquarters this week trying to get his ideas incorporated in this year's campaign. The democrats will have to defend the N:w Deal in a campaign sooner or later, and will probably be glad to me;t Senator Dickinson's challenge. • * • Ought to Conscript Wealth Snc Sun: The American Legion is going to concentrate Us demands largely upon the universal draft during the coming year, with leis emphasis upon payments of 'bonuses and ben- fits, according to reports from Washington. Blanket conscription will get the support of the great majority of the people of the c-untry. If munition manufacturers and other big business inter- es's who profit enormously from wars, knew in advance that the yoyernment is going O take over most of their profit.-. ther ( . would be less agitation for war from there M urce.s than there is today. Without prosp ctive profits there would be few wars. Vf-.s. the Legion ouaht to hav the hearty support in its camnrtign to conscript wealth a.s well as men in the "next war." • • • Mellon a Great Secretary of Treasury Kai/le Grove Eagle: For some reason, or no reason, there i.s a .strange nrejudicc again?.! Andrew Mellon. At the end of the Wilson administration the public debt had reached the unparalleled of $26,W)G.OOC.OOO. Andrew Mellon, while H-cretary of the treasury, paid off two-third.s of that debt, and now in .sixteen months' time of the debt has mounted to more than it was when Mellon was giy^n charge of the treasury. More Andrew Mcllons and fewer "brain trusters" evidently would be better for the country. • * • Collect From the Salary Grabbers Northwood Index: It ir.-.y be out ol place to bring it up again but in t.'ese days of collecting this und trilli-ctiiiK that m the way of taxes for the =tat t; ol Iowa, Th.- Anchor would like to have an answer to OI.L- question: Have the official:; whose duty it is. been as active in collecting the money due the state from ]egi.-.lator.s who owe ir-jin the clavs of the .salary grab a.s they have been in collecting the petty new taxes from the lay citizens of the state? * • • Times Are Growing Better Webster City Journal: Ii you are inclined to think that no progress is being made then indulge in a little ittrosp ction. We believe that you wUl then agree that tnnts are better; that there are a few less things to worry about: that whik- your Utopia is not in sight— it probably never will be— some of the problems hav-- been, and a--e being eolved.— Eldora Herald-Ledger. Conditions here in the midwest conlnue to improve up to about in.- first of June when the drouui had a bad effect on business, farmers leanng the loss of crops naturally cut expenditures all they could and our merchants felt the effect. But the outlook in this section of the state is now better unce the rains and while there will be a short crop of small grain and hay, indications are that our corn crop will be good, and the rains will restore the- pastures. According to ail reports from the industrial sections of the country conditions art- much better than they wtre. Dun A; Braustreet, the Wall Street Journal, Babsori and other good authorities insist they art-, and furnisri the figure^ to prove it. One ol the reassuring things is that there has not be-. ri u bank failure in the entire coulirty this year. This is Mjjjieihjng that means much, especially .--ince it u remember. d that the re were more Uian 10.000 such fail- urea up to the tim ol 19^3. It is true that the banks aie having trouble loaning their iunoi.,, but this condition wiii impio-.c ai coiihd'.nce in the future improves. 1ODD THINGS AND NEW-By Lame Bode THE CONSTANT TORNADO/ THE TORNADO ALWAYS TRAVELS IN AN EASTERLY DIRECTION.

And as the cards with its description on were about to go to press, back came the car with Maurine McC'ullough as the unconcerned driver.
