HENRY COMES HOME Henry Wallace, secretary of agriculture, came home to Iowa for a visit and a tour of Inspection, which took him through Kossuth county last Saturday. Folks around this way, whether or not they thoroughly agree With Henry's program, were glad to see him. They know, at least, that Secretary Wallace is really interested In the problems of the dirt farmer, and he isn't afraid of getting his feet dirty by doing a little first hand Investigating and talking. While some of the ex-big shots, whose advice as in former years to other presidents has run the country, are being left out In the cold, and are forming leagues and raising a howl in general about everything that anybody tries to do. it is nice to find a prominent member of the cabinet coming "way out west" to talk with the people he Is trying to help. And although the NRA is pretty generally conceded to have some pretty bad spots, there are enough other good aspects to the administration's plans is still leave «s with plenty of faith, both In a majority of the plans of the administration and the sincerity and intelligence of the leaders. Personally, we hope they continue to turn a deaf ear to some of the boys who hare formerly dictated policies. A DEPARTMENT OF PEACE The world practically lives in a swelter of advertising. We eat advertised foods, go to advertised amusements, wear advertised clothes and drive advertised cars. Bearing this thought In mind, there seems to be a good deal of common sense In the remark of Senator Kye of North Dakota, that what we need Is a "department of peace," ranking with the army and navy departments. Naturally, the United States is not going to throw away all armament, when other nations are armed. But perhaps one of the reasons why disarmament has never reached first base. Is the fact that through the centuries, war has been advertised, and peace, never. Our history books, until more recent years, have been brimful of wars. Our novels, our movies, our newspapers, all dish up war as a juicy morsel. Our news reels today delight in showing thousands of troops, fighting airplanes moving en masse, dictators making war-like speeches, and so on into the night. But If a sane, level-headed group of men with government backing, or perhaps international backing of all leading governments started out to advertise peace, they could inoculate the public mind of the world in ten years so thoroughly with the germ of peace, that self-seekers •who profit by war would be doomed. Of course, that will not happen. The idea is much too sensible. STILL ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT The bureau of agricultural economics in Its July sews letter, contains some Interesting information. It shows that the increase in index numbers of prices received for farm products in June, 1934, is up 13 points over a year ago. That the index figure of prices paid by the farmers for commodities bought is up 19 points over a year ago. The figures for March, 1934, and 1933, give the farmers a better break. They show that for farm products aold the farmer's Index figure moved up 26 points, and that for products the fanner bought, the Index figure had Bioved up 20 points, a net gain of six points. The drop between March and June is explained by the bureau as due to the fact that widespread drought in the middle west Increased the pilos of commodKies tought for use in farm production, such as feed, fertili- ser, seed, etc. It has been evident that the administration is diligently trying, through both outright aid, and by the use •f modern economics, to help the agricultural sections, kut the index figures show that there Ls still room for Improvement. odds and ends Andy Poster has never said much about hLs culinary ability, but he got o meditating the other day on the tarly days of his married life. Andy says that Mrs. Foster engaged in the task of baking a pie; Andy .sort of watched the proceedings, and after a bit told her that he thought there were several little ways that the baking might be improved. Mrs. Fost.-r thereupon told him that if he knew how, why didn't he bake the pie. With come misgivings, Andy did bake the pie, and lo and he- hold, it turned out nearly perfect. Andy says from that day to this he has been content to rest on his laurels, and is willing to let well enough alone. • 9 « Visiting in another Iowa community i.s far from go- Ing into a for-, ign territory, but when one has the opportunity, it is a pleasure to sin-mi a few hours in another section, meet some of the local folks, and discuss the pros and cons of the times. So it was at Ackley, Iowa, Saturday, with yours truly. We had an int.. retting conversation with R. R. Hadley, the Ackley ice cream manufacturer, who knew our own Charlie Taylor. Mr. Hadley, although no recent prep school graduate, r.olds a pilot's lie: rise, and flies his own Monocoupt, which he keeps at a Waterloo Held. His Is a very modern way of doing business, and the fact that he fiie.s Ls a sample of the initiative to be found in Ackley its- If. I. B. ("Pat') Bleeker, Ackley banker, and Bill Frudden, local Hin.ba- yard manager, were two other ac<iuaintaiic s made at Ackley, while a guest of Dr. R. L. Probasco. Ackley is a city of exceptional cleanliness, everything being mat from the main business section to the most outlying home. When we found that the community was built up by thrifty, orci-. rly old Dutch folks, the ipic and span appearance Is readily understandable. • « V The fact thai Doug Fairbanks and Mary Pickford seem on the verge of making u;> .sh,u!d have .some eifect on til-.- warlike nourishes of Japan and KUi.sia. • « • That saying that some gossip f:oeo in one ear and out the other might L>c altered to read "in one jjhuiie and oizt another." • • • When your wife h tub <jl a lorthcou.ing wvdUmy, and drops a lew words of pity lor th..- bride, >uu have a tune trying to twL'.t it into a compliment. < » * VVekouic Hords of the wet'k: Hogs up a dime. Times Are Better Under Democrats Titonka Topic: You may not agree with the Topic in many things, but you should admit that times are better than they were eighteen months ago. Corn is at a good price, hogs hit $7.50 at St. Paul, and the trend of prices Monday and Tuesday was upward. Tuesday hogs advanced 35 cents and cattle 25 cents. Lard Is up 3 cents per pound within two weeks and every commodity used in the home is advancing in price. • * « Wallace An Able Man Port Dodge Independent: It is not telling an untruth to say Henry Wallace is the most able man In Washington. Not every man would question that fact very far, even the ones who don't like him. He knows the truth when he sees It. And he speaks It, even when It hurts. And it hurts most of the time. Henry is the most talked of man in America., outside of the president. • • • United States Off The War Game Sac Sun: There has beon less talk of war In Europe the past week than a few weeks ago, which Is encouraging. But everything Is favorable to a new fight, and the best the world can hope for is that it will be confined to a comparatively small area. But whatever happens, let's hope that America Isn't called upon again to "save the world for democracy" or to fight "a war to end all wars." Neither has America any money to loan to any other nation to carry on war. • • • Wake tip Republicans Eagle Grove Eagle: After listening to the Republican and Democratic speeches at the Junior Fair, we frankly admit that the democrats had all the best of the argument. The democrats presented facts and figures and made a real case for themselves, both In the state and national field. In a half-hearted ineffective way. Senator Beardsley disputed the right of the democrats to the credit for the present tax reduction. But his statements were largely his own opinions and mere assertions. Judge Gwyrme made very little headway in his attack en tte national policy of the democrats when the opportunity was wide open. Not one of the vicious codes was mentioned or was any attention paid to the obnoxious NRA bill the democrats tried to jam through the special session of the legislature. That NRA bill would have the rulings of the brain trust and its hundreds of clerks, the law of the land in this state. No one would have known what the law was until he opened his morning's mall. In the language of the street, the republicans must "put something on the ball" or they are defeated before the campaign starts. In the news summaries of the speeches being made by the republican candidates for state offices, the republicans seem to be helpless in making a case against the democrats. Senator Patterson is complaining becaus? the democrats put every person of Iowa in the liquor business. The present liquor control law, was passed because! both democrats and republicans favored it. The people themselves, disgusted with conditions under the 18th amendment, voted for its repeal. In a bi-partisan vote In the legislature, liquor was put under state control, rather than under private sale. Private sale means the old saloon. Dan Turner Is quarreling with the democrats about credit for tax reduction. There Is chance for the republicans to get an even break here but no better. The republican candidates must start shooting something besides blank cartridges If they expect to get far with the intelligent Iowa electorate in next fall's election. • » • Taxpayers Should Cheer Up Independent: One thing should be kept clear about all this government spending we hear about. The great bulk of it Is In the form of loans and the refinancing of debts of various forts, through the R. P. C. and other agencies. It will not have to be paid by the taxpayers as is so loosely suggested by Republican Chairman Fletcher, who seeks to intimate that the New Deal is saddling a burden of 27 billons of dollars debt on the American people. If the loans are separated from the outright expenditures, the money spent by the federal government is large, but not alarming. "Tree Belt" Ca'led a Joke Humboldt Bepublicjoi: Anyone experienced in conditions or who stops and considers, knows that the proponed "tree belt" that is to run from the Canadian line to the gulf, and that is designed to stop dust storms, is a joke. It is well known that dust from certain of these storms has recently swept east as far as the Atlantic sea board. These storms travel miks high in the air and cross mountain ranges and high hills, forests and plains with the same ease. The belief that a belt of trees planted in strips a mile apart and extending 100 miles will arrest dust storms is a joke—just a Joke. * • • Patterson Blamed for Long Session Rolfe Arrow: When the campaign really opens you're going to hear a lot about that extra session of the 45th assembly. Republican Big Berthas will fire away at the democratic citadel in thundering tones. There Is no doubt that the extra session took more time to do the jobs it needed to do than was necessary—perhaps 60 days longer. But there was a reason for it, and the republicans nominated one of the reasons for lieutenant- governor of the state and another for congress. These men took advantage of the opportunity to manufacture political propaganda at state expense. Senator Patterson Is a good man in many ways, more good than bad, but he sure did make the democrats fight every inch cf the way to put over their tax revision bill adn the liquor control bill. So far a.s winning anything by it, we doubt if he ever thought h-e could—but think of the propaganda he made! lie introduced amendment after amendment that produced discussion for hours and even days, and d- bated them lo the last ditch, 1'y- im; the patience of friends and arounsing the dtssxist of enemies. Nothing was gained by it whatever. But you'll hear about it, and the the nt-'dle.ss expense will be liaci at the door ol the administration. • * • "Dick" Says Republicans Are Agin the IMmmycrats Fort Dodge Independent: In a magazine article by Senator L- ster Dickinson telling "Whai the Republican* Will Do Nex;," which wa,s published in a recent is,-.uc of LiDerty, Dickinson ha.s taken It upon himself to !>•- conif the chief spokesman for tlw republican party in this part of the country, much to th-- duscomliture of Iowa republicans. In spite of hLs bold title he Is very intlellniie about what the republicans are going to do except to oppose the democrats. He intimates that boim-how the repuolicana may find thtir way back to t lit; good old republican days of ".sound" money, free ciii.ix-tUioii and high taritts, (alas, the latt r haven't left u.s.>. • • * Cause of the Depression Humboldt Independent: It Ls estimated by those who should know that J. P. Morgan & Ca-, Kuhn, Lobe tv. C't)., The National City Co., allilia'e of the National City Bank of N^w York, IJillon, Heed & Co., and other large financial corporations of the east, unloaded fifty- five billion dollars worth of worthless stock and bonds on the buying public. The closed banks muat have dissipated as much more in lest depot's. It was a crushing blow. • • * How About S-uriticiut; Dickinson? EmmtUburg Democrat: Mlie Sioux City Journal opines that "if President Roosevelt's re-election, because ol iiicce.-ibes yet to be achieved, is considered a forgone conclusion two years, from now, many stalwart, republicans might shy away from the lightning, hoping to save themselves lor a tnor-j propitious time." The Journal ha-stens to add' however, that without waning to see wriut develops in the »i«"l W months, the republican party will not lose the presidential election in 1936 by default. Some one will l«; willing to run. Someone is always willing. Con ing irom a ttalwart republican organ as, is the Journal, there is little eric-uraucmetit at tlu present- Dine lor it .suecx.-os.lul laitt ticket. It beeiiis to us that now would be the right time lo k-t Senator Dickinson ricie tli.- bug iu presidential matters. He Ls ambitious and his dclt-at m a presidential campaign would not carry li.e baiiu; aing a-, will deleat in the next senatorial campaign. Yep, we beiu-ve iIn.-. Ls a good idea.

The two loaded the corn, presumably ten bushels, into a truck and drove away. Jens was minus corn and cash for he made no deal (or the sale. • • V Friday afternoon te-tptxmes rang and people looked here, there and everywhere for trail blazer and route director Everett Hancher for the booster trip.

Head The Want Ads--It, Pays. Dinner Served to Guests After Ceremony; To Live in Wesley Wesley: A very pretty home wedding took place last Wednesday at high noon at the home of Mrs. May Harris in Sextoan when her daughter, Marie became the bride of Milton Giddings, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Glddings. The couple, preceded by Rev. I. C. McNulty and unattended took their places In the living room marching to the tune of Lohengrin's wedding march played by the bride's sister, Mrs. Homer Anderson. While in waiting another sister, Miss Mary Harris sang "Oh Promise Me." The home had been prettily decorated In colors of pink and white, and this color scheme was carried throughout the decorations.
