' "R Is fashionable today to emphasise the danger of unconstitutional extensions of legislative power. But the greatest danger to our InsOutions •of government which has developed in the last two years Is rising out of unconstitutional exten- stona of judicial power." Reviewing the history of the Constitution and Supreme court, Richberg summed it up with: "For nearly ISO years the dry dust of legalism has been sifting down on the yellow parchment until now it has become very difficult for common neoplfl to read Its meaning out of words burled deep under successive layers of judicial interpret- * °Even when guidance is sought from the oracles of the Inner shrine, there is a confusion of voices and hi a single delphic announcement the people an told in loud voice that Congress has been granted definite authority to provide for the general welfare, but that the power to enact laws particularly needed for this purpose has been reserved to the states, or to the people, or, very likely, prohibited by the Constitution.

' - WM ™-. that P the Constitution should ' be amended in order to make 'more perfect' and clear the powers of Congress to enact necessary and desirable legislation to protect and advance the general welfare and to regulate Industrial and agricultural activities which are of national concern." THE YEAR'S BIG PROBLEM With 1937 well on Its way, and with seers and prophets reading the stars, and palms, and signs of the zodiac, etc., there will be, we hope, a few who will be hanging around in the vicinity of Washington, D. C., with the desire to make the year notable for one thing. And that, we hope, will be effective legislation which will in part in- •ure neutrality for the United States. Money, the root of all evil, is about the only thing that can drag us into a war. It is now quite apparent that money dragged us Into the last war, and it could do the same again. The formula is simple. Our business men, with money to loan, do so to warring nations. Then, to insure their investment In a winning side, they endeavor to swing our country behind the nations that received their loans. Neutrality legislation which would prevent this loaning of money, or perhaps require some form of public expression before a declaration of war, would slow down the process of loaning money to belligerents. Legislation preventing the exportation of war materials would be another help. There are dozens of other angles. That Europe or the Far East, will soon be at war, seems to be a foregone conclusion. Our best bet is to take some definite steps now—to tell the rest of the world at once—that we will not allow ourselves to be pulled into a conflict to help wash somebody else's dirty linen. Short Hours Only for Drnoes Humboldt Independent: It may be old fashioned but it is the truth that no man who is healthy and in the prime of life has any use for an average of twelve idle hours daily. More, there are no laborers except perhaps those ir. the highly centralized industries that can have that much time off and tarn an honest living. More, labor as a rule can not he given that much time off and keep m step with industry an-1 agriculture as a whole. More than that, industry as a whole tan not adopt such hour.: and maintain the present wages, as is contemplated and continue to exist without a boost in the price of the services they ruider. The Way to Kill County Fair* Humboldt Republican: The repeal of the law compelling the publication of the premiums awarded at county fairs in Iowa did more to injure the fairs than any other legislation ever enacted in the state The laughable part waa that fair secretaries who did not know much about the value of publicity felt they were working in the interest of economy and were largely responsible for the move. Instead they were killing interest in fairi. The Humboldt papers never published matter that was Sore eagerly sought after than the list of premiums awarded at the Humboldt county fair. For many years after the publication was discontinued peo- pl"contlnued to ask when the information would appear. . , .

A short time ago police and the Bheriff 1 * office were called In on a case regarding a girl that was missing. One of the most important facts that the missing girl had had a few sharp words at home, was not disclosed to officers until a day or so later. Naturally, this gave police a clue, and they soon found the girl, who had left, deciding to run away from home. But the point is that officers cannot be expected to really assist in such cases unless they are in possession of all facta. Naturally, it was a point upon which any family does not care to talk, but still absolutely essential to achieve the end everybody wanted-the return of the girl. • • * There's many a fiery furnace beneath a snowcapped dome.

House May Deadlock It may be 54-54 and fight. In the House, if both parties back their own candidates for speaker and refuse to let go of the deadlock. It takes a majority to elect. However, a compromise of some kind is looked for by fair-minded mem- i bers who do not agree that the state's business should be held up by ambitious statesmen. One compromise is suggested by Gustav Alesch of Plymouth county, a leading Democrat. He suggests that if it appears there are lust 54 votes for each party's candidate, n committee on speakershlp should agree to a division of the House committee assignments and then flip a coin to determine which candidate shall be elected speaker, and thus have the preliminaries over with o that the governor may be inaug irated at the usual time and sav he state expense and delay of im >ortant matters. However, leadinf candidates for speaker may no agree to that idea. Inauguration of Gov. 14th Usual procedure is to organize ?oth houses on Monday, with election of officers for the session. Then a joint committee to prepare inauguration program is named. Tuesday a joint committee is named to canvass the vote for governor and lieutenant governor as shown by the official returns. Contrary to general understanding, the governor and lieutenant governor are not yet elected, officially. This joint committee reports the figures on the election returns and both houses then vote to approve or disapprove the report and declare the election. After such approval both houses usually adjourn until the following Thursday while members get ready their white shirts and swallow-tails for the inauguration ceremonies Thursday evening, and the inaugural ball at the state house. No contest on the election of governor is apparent at this time. With an official plurality of 2,440 for governor. Nelson G. Kraschel of Harlan has been one of the busiest men in Des Moinea during the past ton days. He has been studying all angles of the job he baa in store and at the same time has given audience to about 900 applicants for jobs. Governor Kraschel has selected as his secretary, G. Kirtley. a friend end neighbor of his at Harlan. who is an experienced and efficient business man, to assist the governor in bU office. New State Officials Installed There are no changes in the offices of secretary of state, auditor of state, treasurer of btate or railroad commissioners. Thomas L. Currau of Gtturnwa, newly elected »ei:relary of agriculture, assumed ins office January 1. Mr. Curran r~ the recent short extra session of the General Assembly of this state. This gives official sanction to the act which will place nearly $3,000,000 this year In the Federal unemployment compensation fund to be allotted to the state of Iowa for unemployment benefits commencing July 1, 1938.

LaBarre, Sec'y 206 East State St. pected that numerous amendments and changes will be suggested In the state law at the coming reg lar session. Taxation Projects Predominant It Is considered that, aside from he social security act, most tlm nd attention will be given In the omlng session to taxation prob- ems. For one thing, an attempt may be made to repeal the state old age assistance law and turn hat proposition all over to the federal government under the social security old age benefits administration. Then the so-called hree-polnt tax law, passed by the [owa General Assembly in 1934, will come In for some sharp crlt icism and amendment. The sales tax for 1936 has brought in about $15,000,000; the individual Income tax nearly three and one-half million dollars—in all just about the $19,000,000 estimated when thcso acts were paused. Corporations now heavily taxed by the Federa government, may strive for a change in the law. A campaign has been under way for some time by the Iowa State Teachers Association for some act that will provide more money for the common schools of the state. This may take form In an added one percent retail sales tax to go directly to the benefit of the schools. To Battle Beer Law A bitter flght may be expected in relation to the beer and liquor laws of the state, and especially for reform of the beer setup. In relation to the latter there will likely be plenty of hot words and nre- works during the session. Liquor dealers will again attempt to am end the liquor laws to permit the sale of hard liquor by the drink. If one-half of the demands fo new legislation of importance tha will come up in this session ar pressed, it is likely to be one of th longest legislative sessions eve held in the state of Iowa. Home stead exemption bills, new mor utorium prospositions, provisions for more»space for state offices attacks on primary election laws— a hundred kindred subjects fougl over and decided in the past wi come up. Possibly a bill to revls the constitution and provide for unacameral legislative body similar to the one-house legislature now convened in Nebraska.
