Fletcher, rwntlv named chairman of the republican national committee. Jsmbast-rti the New Oral as a failure at < t he G. O. P. conrinr e at Springfield. 111., and fired the open-ins pun a? official spokesman for his party in the next presidential csircpaien. As might be «pw«2. he could see nothing good in th e first two jvarj of 'be New Dra!. Mr. FJctcher is disappointing. He offered nothing ntw ia the way of political philosophy, of political J^wsc-h:, or eren political talk. It was the same old «aS—4he stuff tfca; has disgusted a thinking America. ssri mac> it demand action—and action it has had from th? present administration. The public is not yet ready to again accept, nothing but political mud-slinging from leaders of any political party, it wants something concrete, and cenairUy Mr. FletclKr did not pour any concrete during his talk. Mr. Fletcher said: "The principle running throueh the New Deal, like a sinister red thread, must srive the gravest concern to every man who loves his country and believes in her institutions and drstiny. I tbinfc here In Illinois, the home of and last resting place of Abraham Lincoln, is an appropriate place to refer to It. American liberty ought not to be sold—even to one's government." Abraham Lincoln's greatness was due, in part, to the fact that he represented the masses, that he believed In liberty for everyone whether white or black, and possessed a vision of a greater United States bUUt on a firmer foundation. There seems to be a parallel in President Roosevelt's way of doing business. He. too, represents the masses, his administration has and Is attempting to give everyone liberty, although at this time It Is economic liberty and the right to share In the nation's wealth, and every speech he has made since his Inauguration has contained somewhere in it a part of the vision he hopes to some day see carried out. A vision of a greater United States, with the great national resources being used for public good and not private profit, with fair wages for labor, and fair return to capital. If this vision of President Roosevelt Is socialistic, as has been charged, then the nation Itself is socialistic, because F. D. R. still seems to have the common man with him. Naturally, where he has stepped on toes, support Is lacking, but as long as the public believes he Is sincerely trying to do "the greatest good lor the greatest number" the opposition is not going to find easy going. And if Mr. Fletcher feels that there Is "a red thread" running through the administration's plans, merely because the government has been undergoing a thorough overhauling after a period of degeneracy, he is still living in the ox cart &ge. He may live to see the democratic party ousted from power, or President Roosevelt defeated, but he will never see a complete return to the principles of government in vogue before tJie New Deal. To progressive republicans, especially, Mr. Fletcher's every utterance is extremely disappointing. HOME BUYING VS. MAIL ORDER The toughest competitor that home town merchants face is the one they never actually see, and seldom seem to think of, namely the mail order house. In Algona recently, nt lea-st 1,000 mail order catalogues have been received and distributed, representing a cost for advertising to the mail order concern of at least $2.000 for this shipment, and several shipments a year are made. Only one conclusion can be reached, the mail order houses are getting business from this trade territory. People today will not be dictated to as to wlierf they .shall buy. They do not even evince much interest in the theory thai buying at home k.eps the money in local circulation, which is true. Therefore, the only manner in which local merchants can offset this outside competition, is by making the buying of merchandise at home Just as attractive-, or more so. than through the mail. Nobody would buy a car. mate-rial for a barn, or engage a wife throuirh the mall without viewing the prospective purcha.se, but they will buy mail order goods that way for seme unknown reason. Naturally, being in the newspaper business and depending on advertiMnt,' for a considerable portion of Income, any publication wants iutverti.-injj. So do we. But we are .sincere in feeling lhat by consistent, Wfll planned ad\ .rtihing through the newspaper (the trading center's telephone exchange i, aimed in .show by comparative prices and values that buying at homo is the best and safe.v, and perhaps til • olii apf-.-t, we can convince our buying miblic. that li.e b v,t u>e to which they can put mail order catalogues Li out in the place thai Chic Sale made famous.

Editor Sperbeck started it when he told In the Swea City Herald of having breakfast with a minister. Editor Burdlne followed; he went fishing with a priest. And Editor Coleman mused over the problem, opined that neither editor could have been hurt, much by the ordeal, might possibly have absorbed some good. Mr. Sperbeck had the following reply to make last week: "It is to be regretted that gents of the press as a whole do not develop these qualities which in the end result In closer communion between the pulpit and the fourth estate. There is q uite a bit of common ground between the two . . . both are shooting at the moon most cf the time." We pass this on for consideration. Who knows but what ,«ome local member of the clergy may feel the nocd of editorial assistance nt some breakfast. We wish to state that w-c might even go to church after breakfast. 'ODD THINGS AND NEW-By Lame Bode THE 1500 MILE FOREST LANE Remembering the mighty dust storms of this spring, Kossuth county will be greatly interested in the project for planting a forest lane. 100 miles wide, and 1,200 miles Ion? from North Dakota to the Texas Panhandle. It will be more interested, inasmuch as E. A. Sherman, a brother of Tom Sherman of Algona. and a graduate in 1897 from Ames, an associated United States forester, has had considerable to do with the plan. The project works on the theory that such a strip of land will act as a windbreak in the great plains area, and h-:lp to prevent the shifting of such huge quantities of top soil as has occurred recently, to the disgust of tidy housewives and the discomfort of all men alike. The trees will be planted 100 feet apart, and the work Is to start about 1936. President Roosevelt had already signed the bill. Work will be completed in 1942 or 1944. The tree lane is also supposed to be a protection against drouth. Forestry experts may battle back and forth over the idea, but it seems to have some mighty good points. The only question is whether or not the money to be thus used will be wisely spent. America is in the midst of a public Improvement and building program unequaled In history. Twenty years from now we may not recognize the old country. And perhaps we won't want to recognize it, when the bills come in. odds and end; AjJH.-1'lcu ill. ill Senate Jl.il low cilueiii who are trying get tiuit WB>.
