Dr. Roosevelt is given carte blanche to proceed as he likes. It is now plain Mr. Lester J. Dickinson. After being In office as state legislator, congressman and U. S. senator for a quarter of a century he goes back to his house at Algona to see if the storm windows are on for the winter. Since Dr. Roosevelt took over the mantle of the Great Humanitarian. Mr. Dickinson has been the whipping boy of Iowa. He has been charged with biting little children, taking the food out of the mouths of farmers and deliberately putting the price of hogs down to three cents. In place of Mr. Dickinson in the U. S. senate we shall have a nice, benign old gentleman, Mr. Clyde Herring. Mr. Guy Gillette of Cherokee, just a splendid country boy trying to get along, will occupy the seat made vacant by the death of the late Senator Murphy. Berry Halden, the republican candidate, will go back to his country newspaper office at Clarinda. Mr. Nelson G. Kraschel will be the next governor of our state. Since Nels used to sell hogs from the auction ring around here a decade ago. he has bloomed into a statesman, although Verne Marshall of the Cednr Rapids Gazette has interposed some objections. It is possible the feud be. ja _.*..! POSCU SUIMC OUJUWUVIia. *v ••* v —• '— The Literary Digest must have had an awful tvfeen Mr Kraschel and Mr. Marshall will be con- headache.

The county as a whole, however, didn't feel as generous. • • • In a corner of the court house, John Fraser and Frank Balgeman, side by side, listening to the returns together—each hoping. • • • One of the finest sportsmanlike messages was Bent by Alf Landon to Franklin D.

It is about time that some big business-publishers realized that they have In many cases lost touch with the causes •I the common people, and stopped fighting every movement aimed at a social and economic benefit for the masses, instead of special privileges for a more fortunate group. That was not the way with Patterson of Hurt. Mr. Ray Murphy, incumbent secretary of agriculture, four years ago told friends in a moment of confidence he simply grabbed hold the coWs tai! and she pulled him into the stable. Well. Mr. Murray's hold on the caudel appendage this year was somewhat insecure. He's not going to congress from the eighth district, but instead Congressman Fred C. Gilchrist of Laurens. the envy of the acrobats because of his ability to sit squarely on a narrow fence, will return.

S. Treasury Department, and Inquiries concerning them should be addressed to that bureau. The law also creates an "Old-Age Reserve Account" In the United States Treasury, and Congress Is authorlied to put Into this reserve account each year enough money to provide for the monthly payments you and other workers are to receive when you are 65. Vam Part of The Tax The taxes called for in this law will bo paid both by your employer and by you. For the next three years you will pay maybe 15 cents a week, maybe 25 cents a week, maybe 30 cents or more, according to what you earn. That is to say, during the next three years, beginning January 1, 1937. you will pay one cent for every dollar you earn, and at the same time your employer will pay one cent for every dollar you cnrn, up to $3,000 a year Twenty-six million other workers nnd their employers will be paying means ear.

Defenders of this feature say this disparity Is evened up because the person who makes a profit of $1,000 in a land or other deal does'nt have to pay taxes on that profit However, that is no defense at all. The person who makes a profit of $1,000 in such transactions can afford to pay income taxes on his gains, while the one who has suffered a loss of $1,000 is in a very different position. In justice and fairness he should be permitted to deduct that loss from his net income. No deductions are allowed If one loses in a bank failure. If the so-called net Income tax law is to be continued it should be overhauled by the legislature and these unfair and unjust features eliminated, making it in fact as well as in name a net income tax law. neata." Primarily a picture paper, the News' brief, breezy coverage of political news has. in a campaign marked by biased reporting, been comparatively impartial. To compensate for New Deal slanting, Publisher Patterson made u notable contribution to political journalism.

But for campaign balance and fairness most observers rate it at Chicago's top. New York City. Chicago's newspaper line-up, 4-to-l against Roosevelt. is typical of the nation's. That of New York City, the nation's press capital, is not. In the Democratic metropolis, four big papers are for Roosevelt, five against him.

The Tribune's late great Publisher Joseph Medill had no sons, two daughters. Daughter Katharine married Diplomat Robert S McCormick, bore Medill. who be- <ame V. S. Senator, and Robert R McCormick. Daughter Elinor mar ried Editor Robert W. Patterson bore Joseph and Eleanor Patter son. AB rich men's sons. Cousin "Bertie" and "Joe" both went t Groton and Yale. Afterward, both dabbled in Chicago politics but with notably different approaches. Cousin Bertie remained true to his lass, performed efficient civic service as an orthodox Republican. •ousin Joe turned social-conscious nd, along with several novels and jlays wrote "Confessions of a Jrone" in which he protested the existence of rich parasites like limself. Having experienced a consider- ble clash of temperamenU in their Chicago years, the partner-cousins soon formed a sensible working ayremcnt: Publisher McCormick was to be undisputed boss of the Tribune. Publisher Patterson to be undisputed boss of the News. Publisher Patterson is grey wrinkled, friendly, spends much time circulating through his modernistic News building on Hast 12nd Street, sallying out around the town to find out what the masses are thinking. Publisher McCorm- icli is aloof and domineering, rules his paper from a lofty office in the Gothic Tribune Tower, possesses buch an aversion to human contact that he has hmiself driven to work from his Wheaton estate in a coupe in order to avoid having to offer a neighbor a lift. Yearly he enter laina his employes in the Tribune Tower lobby. Remarked Cousin Joe Patterson ut one of these affairs: "Berl ceriainly likes to crack Ihe whip and wacth the serfs march by." as what he intends to do about reviving NRA.

AMOUNT OF YOUR CHECKS How much you will get when you are 65 years old will depend entire ly on how much you earn in wage* rom your industrial or business I mployment between January 1, 937, and your 65th birthday.
