AND HUMAN HEALTH _ Fly-time is here and with it, added hazard to human health. The house fly, Musca domestica, is known to carry the germs of typhoid fever and of ouier intestinal ailments. Transportation of disease germs from filth to food through the agency of flies, is age-old, yet, modern ns travel by airplane. The danger of fly-borne disease naturally depends upon the number of these insect pests and upon general sanitary conditions. The life history and breeding places of the —; fly (often called "filth fly", "typhoid fly") are Thomas Jefferson, discussions of the constitution etc. Yet, this editor who uses n piece of ready-made republican propaganda each week, without statin* where he obtained it, is Inconsistent enough to denounce the Des Moines Register for employing Jay Franklin. And, please note, the Register explained at the beginning of Franklin's series of articles that his opinions were being published because he was an exponent of the New Deal. The Register also publishes the writings of men who are deadly enemies of the Roosevelt administration, and Is employing Jay Franklin in order to present both sides of the question.

Some day we're liable to pull her through the front door and wash her neck—it's terribly dirty. • * • And They Say There's Romance in The Newspaper Business Park Ridge, N. J., Local: About a year ago we received a letter from a woman subscriber who told us how much she liked the paper, especially the editorials. In her effusiveness, she even went so far which certainly was no compliment to theVrHnTg anility of Mr. Anderson. The other day she refused to renew her subscription because she didn't approve of an editorial wew rote about the Hauptmann case. That was her only objection to the paper in the year and one- half that it has been under the management of the present owners. Of course, we felt that she was unfair. So we _ „ i.,,...

Studies have shown that a single pound of manure will produce as many as 1200 flies, every two weeks throughout the summer months. The second most favored breeding place according to observations by entomologists, is human excrement, exposed in insanitary toilets or elsewhere. It is from such sources that Musca domest ca is apt to carry germs causing typhoid fever, 'summer complaint" and similar ailments to milk and sweet foods in kitchen and dining room. " «rH I Vl re u <JMy P° ssible t° reduce greatly the hazard of fiy-borne disease, through organized attack on the fly nuisance. Intelligent action is necessary based on knowledge of the human fly, its habits and life history. Screened doors and windows, well repaired and well fitting, are essential. Use of fly swatters and fly traps, though admirable, is quite futile without measures designed to eliminate or control sources of fly breeding. It is apparent that the successful carrying out of such measures requires both individual and concerted effort to improve sanitary condtions In urban and rural areas. HARVEY INGHAM'S SUGGESTION A few days ago, Harvey Ingham, who with . _ r _,, j,^. uuu otna icu lIKUrliiK For seventy-eight weeks, with an overage of four editorm s a week, there had appeared in this newspaper 312 editorials. Something that appeared in one of the 312 editorials offended our reader. So she refused to renew her subscription for that reason. Which leads us to wonder if we wouldn't get a little more satisfaction out of life by operating a hot dog stand—or perhaps going into the real estate business. DOES EVERYONE HAVE "A tittle TUBERCULOStS* CHRISTMAS SfALS RNAMCE THIS FttHT AGAINST TUKRCUUMIS TheMan About Town Says Although the flailing gang has returned, the stories this year are fewer and of a less flashy variety. Reports vary on the Cass Lake fish situation all the WH y from "rotten" to "fair". We understand the highlight of the recent party was the arrival of the Joe Harig-Dolph Raney delegation a couple of days behind the main body. • • • And the police could cheerfully shoot Charlie Lchmann, or Pred Kent.

Instead of a state fair where we exhibit the prize bulls, cows, and the finest stallions and marcs showing the excellent results of fine breeding over a few generations, and proving that better specimens of flesh can be achieved by correct mating he would substitute a "human fair." _ At thlB <Wr. we would have on exhibit, and award ribbons to. the winners tor the best specimen* of men and women, boya and girte. We would conduct physical tests and give ribbons. We would conduct mental tests and give ribbons. And then we would see that those who ranked the highest and the best, were given the right kind of barns in which to live, would be given plenty of good food and fresh air. They would be considered the backbone of our citizenry, and to them we would look for a general improvement over the years to come in the human strain. The only trouble with Mr. Ingham's suggestion is that it is far too practical to be adopted To improve .strains of cattle we'll spend thousands, but for the human strain-well, any old thing will do 111.. . .. . . ITS SIMPLER HERE If you are one of those who think that our American party system is too old-fashioned and ought to be reduced to a mere designation of liberals as opposed to conservatives, consider for a moment the situation in France. There, in recent elections, the people were faced with a lineup that would baffle the most astute political student. They were required to choose somehow, from Communists, Dissident Communists Radical Socialists, Independent Socialists, Dissident Socialists, and just plain Socialists; Left Republicans, Right Republicans, Popular Democrats and Conservatives. Fortunaately, our system is not yet as involved as that of France. But the increasing number of "isms" we have faced in the last 10 years is u. warning. We might in time become as hopelessly tangled up in our voting as the French. That would mean to us just what it has meant to Frame—ever- anging government. weight of an Atlas— at times. Anyway, Charlie counted up his used cars at closing time, and found one missing. He hunted high and low, and still could not find it. The police were notified, and began looking for it. Finally, after 24 hours, Charlie noticed a strange car near the garage with the license of the missing machine. He investigated; he found that just before Fred left town he ordered the car repainted, and Charlie, who only knew it by the old color, was left in the dark regarding the paint job. They say Charlie lost five pounds sweating over the matter. Why Not lie ( oiisihtcnt ?
