His one aim was to do his job as welt as it could possibly be done. His reputation for workmanship was his most-prized possession. We assume that those days are gone now. But their values are still good; We still pay off, In the long run, on dependability and craftsmanship. The corporation may replace the individual owner—but the traits that brought a man success and independence in the days of Gus Schaefer will bring them, today, to the man who demonstrates that he possesses them. "Let the people know the troth and the conn. try H Mfe."—Abraham Lincoln. THE PRESIDENTIAL VISIT Arriving in Brazil, President Roosevelt was greeted with an ovation reported as surpassing nearly everything he had been through in his presidential campaign. The Latin temperament is one which thoroughly enjoys a fiesta or a presidential visit, or almost anything which enables one to knock off work, and FDR gave them a good excuse. But seriously, the visit Is more than that. If the mere visit of a president from another nation will bring the citizens of the nation visited to such emotional and friendly heights, why don't presidents, and kings and dictators do more visiting? Of course, pure nationalism is something that says "we are the world's best" and intimates that other nations cannot equal our own sphere. And the result is not always peaceful, especially when the other fellow feels the same way. But the President of the United States visits South America, and the natives go wild. There is even talk of the president (or dictators) of Brazil and Argentina paying us a return visit. Now that's getting some place. Perhaps the world would be better off if it required the ruler, dictator or president of each nation to spend so much tin^e per year visiting other nations. We've tried just about everything else in the interests of peace except that, and maybe we've been overlooking a good bet. VALUES OF 'GOLDEN AGE' STILL HOLD GOOD A great many words have been written to explain what the "good, old days" in America were like—the days when rugged individualism and private initiative were prized realities and "not campaign phrases. Most of these words fail of their effect They cannot recreate the golden age (if that Is what it really was), because Us essence was a spirit, a state of mind, rather than a set of concrete facts. But now and then we find in one man's life an exposition of that vanished era which is more eloquent than many pages of type. There died in Ohio not long ago, for example, a 92-year old man named Gustav Schaefer. He was born In Germany and he came to the United States as a young man, without resources except for a lot of determination, a strong body, and a handy knack with tools. Schaefer started out by working in a small blacksmith and carriage shop. The job carried no pay at all; he slept In a drafty attic over the shop, under a roof so flimsy that snow used to cover bis bed on winter mornings. He lived on pumpernickel and water for a long time, while he waa learning his trade. And at la*t, hit apprenticeship 04XnpJ«t«d, n« opened hi* own little (hop and began ilia manufacture of wagons. For the next half century he ran this shop. His wagons were famous, locally, for their durability and good workmanship. Schaefer used to boast that he would pay $100 to anyone who could produce a Schaefer wagon that had worn out. He never had to make good on It. Almost to the end of his long life, the head of this firm used to go down tothe shop and personally supervise things—taking a hand himself with the tools, as like as not. He delegated to no one the responslbilty for seeing that the Schaefer name continued to stand for solid and enduring craftsmanship. Now there is nothing especially unusual about this old gentleman's story. But it does set forth the great virtues of the golden age of the small shop in America—the age when a business institution was the shadow of an individual and not the shadow of a miscellany of stockholders. The man who ran such a business was not worrying about stock setups Wall Street backing, or Our erstwhile friend and contemporary editor of the Rotary Rag, L. S. Bohannon, says the only trouble with Thanksgiving Is that the pin feathers get into his teeth and Its impolite to use a toothpick. • • • THOUGHT OF THE WEEK—From Houston, Texas, the couple who say they have been through the wedding ceremony four times "because we believe In honeymoons." • • • And the University of Wisconsin has produced a genius on the faculty who suggests a summer school for prospective athletes, at the expense of the college, where the cream of the applicants who look like varsity material may be weeded out and put on a pension for the duration of their varsity career. Some of our republican friends might be expected to suggest that this Wisconsin U. fellow be given a place on the brain trust. • • « Johnny (Tarzan) Welsmuller had better stick to tigers, lions, and elephants, and leave the army and navy alone, if the story about his getting knocked flat on his back by a lieutenant is true. • • • Someone has discovered that the average coed uses enough Up stick in a year to paint four barns. Sort of another red menace. • • • We may well expect the use of canes, and the growth of chin whiskers to become a fad, now that the old age pension plan is about to get under way on a large scale. • • • And among other thing*, Toio\ Hi White'sl dog, can now open the door Into the Upper Des Moinea office as well as into James' drug store. • • • We can't understand how anybody with the ingenuity to put such a want ad In the paper could flunked out of school, but a football player at Michigan had that happen. Then he put an ad under the wanted column, in a local paper, saying that there was a 240-pound player available, whose only drawback was that he was a mighty poor student. Wonder how many answers he received. Famous Lost Line ty that mouse trap? -Would you please cmp- "Blg Knife" Should Jump In the Lake S. C. Live Stock Record: Charley Big Knife, Chippewa Indian weather prophet hands out warning to get out the red flannels and other wise prepare lor one of the Worst winters in history. And then comes an announcement that Charley Blf Knife has not keen wrong 1 in forty years In his weather prognostications. Aw, to'ell with that bunk! Here It is not two weeks ago we were hearing that the Literary Digest was never wrong in its political prognostications—and what happened just one week ago today? Some of the fellows of faith in that Digest prognostication are still gasping for breath. Roosevelt Should Slow Down Webster City Freeman: It is to be hoped that President Roosevelt will not think his overwhelming reelction is an endorsement of hia entire program. The people believe that hsi forthright action upon becoming president, to smash the depression stopped bank failures and that his money policies were sound and neceasary. The people also admire the courage he exhibited in daring to ask for power from congress to attack the situation, being unwilling to assume the entire responsibility. In the dark days of early 1933 it was very necessary to have action and Roosevelt was the man of the hour. Now, however, the people want him to cut expenses and balance the budget as soon aa hu can.
