WHY THE UNEMPLOYED ARE THE BIG PROBLEM To those of us who do not live In manufacturing centers, and to whom there Is no ncute problem of doing something,for th? unemployed, there may be a tendency to wonder about the big hue and cry that comes from all quarters relative to unemployment. We see money being spent en all sides in an effort to spur employment. The OCC. PWA. and CWA are all government attempts to spur employment, and take the unemployed out of that class. The NRA despite all of its objectionable features, was simply an attempt to cut the working hours of labcr so that more men would of necessity be employed. The fact is that 40.000,000 Americans have been reduced nearly to poverty because there are 10,000,000 others who are out of work. Economic conditions are interrelated. That is, the unemployment of one group means reduced income of another, due to less business, less consumption of raw foodstuffs, and because the 10,000,000 must be cared for out of relkf funds, which can only be raised through taxation or a public bond issue of some eon. Government measures to date have relieved the situation in part, but the big problem of the future Is to so arrange our economic structure that the 10,000,000 unemployed are given a chance to work for an honest living. And relief, likewise, is the problem of immediate necessity. The greatest danger is that those on relief, aided as they are by government funds with little effort on their own part, may come to feel that a dole is their right at all times. Not all will feel that way, but a few slackers may. Honest work Is the right of every American; asking a dole is a very un-American gesture. LIBERALIZING THE G. O. P. "The reactionaries are dooming the G. O. P.," said Senator Borah, republican, Idaho, making a public statement In which he demanded that the liberal leadership of Teddy Roosevelt or the farsightedness of Abraham Lincoln be incorporated into the organization. Not wishing in any degree to say, "I told you so," but this newspaper several months ago, before the heat of the political campaign reached Its highest pitch, made the same declaration hi slightly different words. At that time, we ventured the suggestion that the selection of a reactionary ae national chairman would in no wise instill new life Into the republican party. Opposition is definitely a good thing in any democratic form of government. It acts as a check and balance on the party In power, and serves to keep the public keyed up to national issues. If the republican party continues to yield to reactionary leadership, and refuses to admit some of its brilliant younger members to leadership. It will do two things. It will deprive the country of a lively opposition to the administration, and It will eventually die the death of otter political parties of the part. Pastor Describes Task of Violin Making, An Unusual Hobby (By Rev. A. H. Haeser—No. 3) The violin last week was left "hi the white". We are now ready to consider the black parts that are found on the violin. These should be genuine ebony. On account of the hardness of this wood we find It very difficult to fashion it into correct shape. Most of these parts you can obtain only hi the rough. That Is, the pieces are from 50 percent to 100 percent too large. The exceptions to this rule would be the tailpiece and chin rest. Hours of time are required to fit the other parts properly. Perhaps the ones requiring the greatest amount of time and skill are the pegs. Special tools are necessary to do this job satisfactorily. We fit these parts while the instrument is "in the white" but do not place them permanently until the instrument is varnished. I am convinced that the vamlsh has a great deal to do with the tone quality of the instrument. As far as the tone is concerned we had better leave the varnish off. Carl Becker, the noted Amrican violin maker of Chicago told me that he never played one of his violins "in the white 1 ' because the varnish later altered the tone so that the whole thing meant too great a dissappoint- ment to him. Now why not leave the violin hi the white? Such an instrument when played upon would retain its good tonal qualities for about two years and then it would begin to deteriorate and finally become useless. The instrument must have varnish to preserve it, and eventually, if it is a good one and is finished correctly, we shall have a finer toned instrument than we had when it was in the white. We do not know what kind of varnish the old masters used. However, expert violin makers at the present time seem to feel quite certain that it was oil varnish. Today when violin varnishes are mentioned we have in mind the oil and spirit varnishes. We are also safe In saying that most cf the ordinary violins of today have the spirit varnish. Very seldom can one obtain a good oil finished instrument for less than one- hundred and fifty dollars. There are several reasons why this is the case. The oil vamlsh is mere elastic than the spirit and therefore is not so apt to restrict the vibrations of the instruments. You will naturally wonder now why all violins are not finished In the oil varnish. There are of course a number of reasons. In the first place, the commercial violin makers are expected to make different grades of Instruments. If the dealer wants a violin to retail at fifteen dollars, it certainly must not have the workmanship, finish and tone of a one hundred dollar Instrument. In the second place a good violin has ordinarily from five to fifteen coats of oil varnish. Each coat requires from a week to a month to dry before another coat can be applied. Do you see how long a time is required to complete one of these Instruments. The truth of the case Is that very few good violin makers can make a decent living making first class instruments. They depend on repair work for their greatest income. I do not want you to take for granted now that an oil varnished violin Is always better than a spirit varnished one because some very poor oil varnishes are used. I have been paying seventy-five cents an ounce for the oil. Cheaper ones can be had. If we have used good wood and taken pains in the constructing of an instrument we certainly should finish It with the finest varnish obtainable. The last article will be written next week. I expect to deal with choosing the right violin. odds and ends ELECTION GLEANINGS An election is over; but the excitement has only begun. Public interest, aroused to the whitest heat in many years should stay that way for the next two years. It Isn't the election that causes any upheaval In public life, but what hnppons after the election. You wonder w.;y Hu y Lone; is abl:> to hold the Louisiana electorate in ch.-ck? Here's the answer. His "Utopian" amendments were all passed, 2 to 1. In th-:m, ke suggstcd sucoeusfuly that (1) everybody can vote, without paying a $1 poll tax, (2) homes with an assessment of und.r $2.000 exempted from taxes, (3) auto licenses reduced, (4) impose income tax on classes with larger inc-mcs. Tliat'-~ the secret of Huey's suco:ss. And If he wants to secede from the union, why not let him. In Nebraska, the honr? of the venerable George Nor- rls, senator of a progressive nature and a thorn at times In the republican ranks, a one-hcuse legislature has be:n approved of by the voters. The idea is Senator Norris'. He Kks why should two houses be elected, supported and allowed to flourish when cue wauld be as representative, more economical and troublesome. • • • Snator Ha.'ting.s, (Hep., Drl.) former chairman of the republican senatorial committee, .said: "Tuesday's election demonstrau-s that New Deal, like a dangerous, mast rt;n its course and that the cri-sls has not yet bet-n reached." • • • In the .state of Iowa, the reflected lit-mocratic officers can <.nhanc<? their value in the ftate hoa've by doing somethint; iibour wvcral things. The .sales tax is not working perfectly, and it is possible that an improvement through revision might be made, to 1-ssen the burden on neces-sitlus of life, and increase thorn on luxuries. The -stat-.' highway patrol and the state liquor stores should not b<> n'H'Viil setups, any more than the l«»tmas*«TS. A civil Berrice commission should determine the applications tor ji>bs in I: e .state highway patrol and the .state liquor stores. Pr'-bably most of the present employees could and would Euct'e.ssfullv meet all the civil service requirements but as the years go on. these jobs should not become political footballs Lord know we have enough of them now without adding more. • • • The next congress will not be be one of republicans or democrats, but one of liberals versus conservatives, with members of both parties on both hide, of the f- noes, and the liberals well in the lead, trying to hold in check a few crack-braintd radicals. • • • The G. O. P. mu,st, convino the country between now and 1936 thrtt it is looking ahead, not just back. As W. Earl Hall said in the Mason City Globe-Gawtte Thursday, "Iowa republicanism must not again present itself •aBpty-liandtd. It must be something more than a warmed over old deal, with all the shallowness and hypocrisies which attached U< fce politics of those other days " Among the many after election stories, is the incident that occurred in the upstairs quarters over the Iowa State Bank, last Thursday morning . . . H. B. White, young republican club chairman, found a black wreath and a placard reading: "Here lie the remains of the grand old party" . . . J. L. Bonar might be able to explain, HI Intimated, or perhaps Dud McDonald knows something about It. • • • i ALMOST ANT OXBZ.

A Burt feminine republican supporter, was passing out cards for a GOP candidate and the reactions of those receiving the cards was interesting to watch. If a democrat received the card, he cr she was apt to disdainfully toss it away. One even crunched it beneath her heel. Th? republican voters accepted th. cards and smiled at the donor most pleasantly. • • * The new book by Hmry Wallace, "New Frontiers", running serially in the Sunday Des Moines Register, is a volume well worth anybody's time to read.

A large crowd was expected. Estherville had been excited over the number of fires occurring lately. All gave evideno? of having been the work of an incendiary. A fifteen year old boy had finally confessed, and after being adjudged insane, had been sent to Cherokee. An attempt had been made recently to wreck a freight train on the Milwaukee road near Sexton. A passing freight train had struck an obstruction east of the Sexton yards and again about one and one half miles west of the town.
