With those words George W. Norris, uncrowned ctar of Nebraska, gave his blessing to the new one-house assembly of his state, as it began It first Mttlon. And in those words, Mr. Norris packed the reasons why his brain-child, the modern, one-house, Bon political assembly Is the greatest single contribution to state government in past 29 years. And it la safe to say that within the next 25 yean a majority of the other states may come to their senses and do likewise. There Is no more reason for having two branches in a state legislature, than there is in quarreling over bridge. Both are nonsensical. The 43 members of the Nebraska assembly llrete elected on a non-partisan ballot, and owe no . allegiance to party bosses. The plan Is simple, gate away from party politics, which are as unnecessary in state offices as they are in county, •ad If it did nothing else, it is a direct saving in the cost of government from the salary and red tape standpoint Let's hope the one-house assembly in Nebraska is everything that it should be; and then let's adopt it in Iowa. der of the borders' of this state »«•• retail business because of the sales tax. Webelieve there is a direct connection between the sales tax and the tremendous Increase In business of the big city mail order houses. Legislators from border counties In Iowa should be especially determined1 to repeal the sales tax. We are glad to report that both the Winneshiek county's members of the legislature are publicly committed to vote for repeal of this tax, which is doing considerable harm to the retail dealers of this and every other border county In the state, and smaller but important harm to retailers of Interior counties. * * * Is the Radio Worrying Hie Big Dallies? Eagle Grove Eagle: The large newspapers of the country are not so sure about the future. They have already seen the radio take away a large percentage of the advertising dollar. With television almost in the picture, the publishers are wondering just what is going to happen next. In fact, the larger newspapers already have their own broadcasting stations. The Register-Tribune owns one at Des Moines, Marshalltown, Waterloo and Ottumwa. The Mason City Globe-Gazette will have its new station operating within the next 60 days. It will be known as KGLO. Perhaps the dally newspaper of the future will be on your receiving set when you come down stairs in the morning, pictures and all. "Time Marches On!" The Onto of Labor Unions Sibley Tribune-Gazette: Ask any farmer what he thinks about a 30-hour week. The average farmer works from 12 to 15 hours a day. Instead of a 30-hour week he ofttimes has a 100-hour week. That is also true of many business men. Is it a fair exchange when labor unions are asking for a 30- hour week in exchange for a farmer's week of 100 hours. COMPULSORY DRIVING INSURANCE NEEDED Elsewhere on this page will be found a Reader Comment letter from a subscriber, regarding the question of safety on public highways, and manner and means of driving motor vehicles. With most of his points, we agree. However, there is no use to attempt the impossible, and trying to limit speed to SO miles per hour is an impossibility With modern cars and modern methods. But there is at least a partial solution, and that is a law which COMPELS every driver of a motor vehicle to carry insurance for himself and insurance protection for the other fellow. If such a law existed, it would automatically bring the desired results. 1— Insurance companies would use care in picking risks, and incompentent drivers, poor risks, and youngsters not yet ready to drive cars would be unable to get insurance, and hence drive. 2 — Poor driving records while In possession of insurance would lead to a refusal for a continuance, and a bad driving record would therefore be avoided.

EDUCATION ON SOCIAL DISEASES The first conference on record to discuss and formulate plans to control and eradicate syphilis and gonrrhea has just been concluded. It was called by Surgeon General Thomas Parran of the United State Public Health Service. In past years social diseases have been spoken of only In the lowest of tones, behind closed doors, and In some cases thought of as almost too undls- creet a topic to even be mentioned. The result has been a conspiracy of silence which has prevented general education along lines likely to successfully combat and reduce the percentage of cases. A group of public-spirited Chicago business men banded together several years ago, donated money for free clinics, and then paid for newspaper ads telling and Inviting the public to make UM of the medical staff offered them for little or nothing. Thousands of cases have been treated, many cured, since then. Silence on the subject of social disease will continue to reap dividends in undermined health; frank, honest and sincere discussion, and public education will be a long step forward to control and eradication of the diseases. "He Governs Best Who Governs Least" Harlan Advocate: In the literature of the world may be found the proverb, or whatever it is, which we have chosen as the title of this editorial. It would seem to set forth a line of action which might well be adopted by the President of the United States as his guide from now on so long an lie remains in office. This writer U firmly of the opinion that, if the American people were turned loose to do their durndest, the only strings tied to them being that each shall treat all others fairly, there would be much a. revival of business effort as would rttuH in jobs for all able to work, and a period of j,ro»ptr- ity which has not been known in this country since the close of the World War. Imagine, for instance, putting agriculture ur^der the control of Lord Henry Corn Wallace of L>tk Moines, Iowa, and permitting him to tay to our fanners, you shall do thus and to, and do nothing else, under penalty of my displeasure. Thi* psptr does not believe the people of this country *houJd be regimented, their every move and *ug- ge»ted and regulated from the national cai/ita!. That line of procedure la loo much suggestive of what la being done in Russia, Germany and Iiaiy It Is too bad the people of the country were not grounded in the wisdom contained in the proverb which suggests this effort, in time to select a government during the late election, which would have turned them loose to work out their own aalvatlon. We are too competent and too proud a people to subordinate our own best judgments, take order* from Washington, and permit ourselves to be governed, from breakfast to bed, by the communist government now functioning in the national capital. * • • All We Auk i* Money to Play the Corn Game Traer Star-Clipper: The greatest thing that could happen in America today would be the adoption of some sort of system whereby every time we were banded a $1 bill a government tax collector would step up and snatch it out of our hand, giving u» back 75c in return. Impossible, of course —but we would begin to realize what has been go- lax on all the time without our knowing it. We •till would have just as much money for our own vf ^ tts we have now—in fact u whole lot more, because it would not be long until we all got together to elect officials who would put a stop to the present public waste and extravagance.

Not to the strains of "My Old Kentucky Home", nor to the hoarse shouting of the multitudes, but under the less conspicuous scrutiny of every Iowa taxpayer who can read, write and hear, the legislators of Iowa's 47th General Assembly convened In Des Moines Monday. For many of the legislators, it was their second "opening day" In less than a month, due to the fact that many are hold-overs from the 46th assembly which convened in special session here last month to pass the Iowa unemployment insurance act Others, newcomers to Iowa legislative proceedings, paid their first visit to the stftehouse as mem her 3 ' of an Jowa assembly, but under the efflc'ent political jockeying of the "old-timers", th-a routine business of the opening day proceeded without a hitch. Social Security Klrst The unemployment insurance measure will receive early attention In the legislature, under the terms of an understanding reached by the legislators at the special session. Not only Is It advantageous to take up the question of social security while it Is still fresh in the minds of those who attended the special session, but it is important that the measure should be put on a permanent basis. The act passed by the special session, with vacancies in both houses, will need the endorsement of thia kswjtibl? to tegaH«* Mr fully. . , Gossip among the corridors of the statehouse and the hotel lobbies during the week end, Indicates that four aspects of the unemployment law are destined for particular scrutiny. (1) How many? Employers of how many workers should be Included in the act? The "model law" passed in December calls for employees to be eight or more In number. However, some feel that the number should be reduced to four; others contend that all employers should be taken Into the fold. There is also talk that a clause be inserted in the law which will make the Iowa statute automatically conform to the federal law if the latter is changed. This would prevent the need of any more "special sessions." (2> The nature of the commission which is to administer the law is also under discussion. Whether to have a working commission of three full-time members, or a "policy board" of five members on a per diem basis, with the real work to be done by a full- time administrator, are questions which were raised during the special session and which will come up again. Appointment to the commission whether it be three or five in number, will be a function of Governor Kraachel. (3) The method of appeal from decisions of the commission wil also be challenged. The "mode law" as passed was obviously designed for heavily industrialized centers, and the routine for making an appeal is rather complicated. For Iowa, a simpler and more direct method of appeal may be advisable. (4i The emergency bill carried a clause providing for a "merit system," under which employers with a "good record"; that is, who had obviously done all they could to keep workers on the payroll during the depression, are to be given a special rating entitling them to a slightly more advantageous tax rate. This clause provoked considerable fire In the special session, and will probably be attacked again. No Lo»» of Time Present indications are that the work on the social security bill will go ahead, full steam, as soon as the houses meet after the inauguration. By appointing the committees on this bill right away, and swinging into action immediately, the assembly has a chance to fill in the usual "lull" which folows the inauguration, and put to profitable advantage time which would otherwise be wasted. What Price Education? Twelve million dollars, state aid for the public schools of Iowa, will be asked of the legislature, in a | bill to be introduced early in the session, it was learned upon excellent authority. The sum will not be sought from specific state revenue sources, such ax retail sales taxes, income taxes, beer taxes, liquor store receipts or cigarette tax, but will be a direct demand on the general fund of the state treasury. Provisions of Iowa's first legislative bill to bring state aid to the general public school system were approved Friday in Des Moineb in u huge mass meeting of groups interested in educational advance- rnirnt. Convened ut the call of Miss Agnes Samuelson, state uupcrin- j tv.'idi-m of public instruction, the i meeting brought together th« Iowa Council for Better Education, the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, the Association of Iowa School Board, the Iowa Congress of Parents and Teachers, the American Legion, the Iowa Federation of Women's clubs and the Iowa Branch of the American Association of the University Women. Appropriation Purified By taking the appropriation from the general fund of the state, even though actually the money may be derived from liquor and beer traffic, from cigarette tax revenues and the sales and income taxes, sponsors of the bill feel that there should be no objection from the public on moral grounds. This, on he theory that liquor receipts, beer taxes and cigarette taxes, when merged in the general fund of the state, become "purified" by a flilteration process in the state treasury, and there is not tainted.

Algona, Iowa, Dear Editor: Figures are never supposed to He, but liars are mostly adept at figures. The Department of Labor in Washington Issued a statement that a family of four or six must have an income of $2,634.70, a year in order to live as a respectable American citizen. Maybe so. Now compare the above figures with a five year Income of myself. Judging by the two sets of figures somebody's calculations mtist be "haywire." Total income for 1932 $327.00. Total Income for 1933 $299.07. Total income for 1834 $498.50. Total income for 1935 $689.10. Total Income for 1936 $922.66. Very truly yours, John Nordstrom, Algona.

About Safe Driving Last week's Advance contains an article about safe driving that needs answering. You must base your conclusions on the average driver. Obviously, 49 per cent of the people driving cars along the road are below average. Allowing 2 per cent as average, you have 49 per cent above average. What is happening every day ought to convince the most skeptical the average driver Is entirely Incompetent to drive a car at 60 miles per hour to say nothing about higher speeds. A safe driver at high speed must have just the qualities an aviator must have to pass the tests. One important qualification is a long mileage experience. A high speed driver must have the fine sense of feeling and reaction to conditions and experience long enough to make every phase of his driving entirely automatic. Not over 20 per cent of the drivers operating cars on the highway have these qualifications. Everybody knows the roads are lined with Incompetent drivers, but firmly believe the other fellows are the guilty parties. Just figure you are an average driver until you are able to convince other people as well as yourself you are better than the average driver. There are some restrictions that could be successfully enforced that would make driving much safer. Any real high class driver will readily admit every faculty he has must be alert when driving at a ntg-b vp*M, Th«<M young co-ed* and others who think they can tune a radio with one hand and drive a car at 75 miles per hour with the ether would be safer If use of radios in cars was confined by law to officials needing them. If all cars were required to Install lights which are at all times safe for the car which meets them without attention from the driver. Safety glass would decreaae the damage from collisions very materially and should be required on all cars. Finally no test of a driver's fitness Is as good as an actual record. Any old, experienced driver who has a long mileage record without denting a fender Is a safe driver. Such a driver Is safe whether he is deaf, minus an eye, leg, or arm. Confine all inexperienced drivers to a speed at least as low as M miles per hour until they have made a record. Ag ain statistics show these young, inexperienced drivers, while better cperators mechanically, are on speed and short on judgment They cause a high mileage per cent of the accidents. Give every driver who collides with a car on the wrong side of the road at least a stiff fine. He is wrong three times out of four, and Is not right the fourth. The ditch is usually much safer if you must make a choice. Let the law provide severe penalties for the driver who crowds another off the road. In any event this safe driving matter will be settled some way The unsafe drivers will be crippled, dead or reformed, together with an army of average drivers who try to drive safely. The only high speec drivers left will be well up In the higher qualification brackets. —B. L. G. For Your Own Good Health Cleanse the throat with Llster- int mixed with half quart warm water.

"HOME BOY MAKES GOOD" IN SOUTHLAND Harold Turner Heads Big Ladies' Ready-to-Wear Store in Son Antonio Harold M. Turner, an Algona boy who has made his mark in the ladles' outfitting business, has for the past seven years managed the big Peyton store at San Antonio, Texas. Harold, who is an Algona High school graduate, started his career as a clerk In the R. M. Quinby store In Algona. Later he managed stores at Sioux City, Omaha and Salt Lake City before go- Ing to San Antonio. His mother, Mrs. Kate Turner, for many years an Algona lady, now lives with her daughter In Des Moines. In noting the change of the Peyton store to a new location the San Antonio Express has this to say: "After 25 years on Alamo Plaza, D. P. Peyton Company, upstairs at 329 Alamo Plaza, has signed a long-term lease for store space at 226 East Houston street In the city's busiest block, a few doors rom the Majestic Theatre. "Peyton's is managed by Harold M. Turner, who has been in charge or the past seven years. His records. Turner says, show that 1936 has been the best year in the hls- ory of the store here. For this reason, he declares, the store Is being moved to its new location to Penny Doesn't Tempt At San Antonio LuVerne News: On a desk In the city hall at San Antonio, Tex as, reposes a dusty penny which was placed there 16 year* ago by a woman employe, who wanted to see bow long It would stay there That is a long time and complain U made on the honesty of the people who have business in that of fice.
