Emmetsburg Democrat: A number o administration newspapers have al ready commenced to discredit the mo tives of Senator Nye of North Dakota, who has been on the trail of Mrs Ruth Hanna McCormick, Mr. Davis the newly elected senator from Pennsylvania, a former cabinet officer, am other public officials who have been spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to win in primaries and in election campaigns. Even the great Chicago Daily Tribune and the Sioux City Journal are pronounced in their criticisms of Senator Nye's efforts. Accord- ng to reports, Mr. Davis S600.000 into his campaign. put ovei Will any Suspicioiu Change "You can't slight n man 25 years,' says ii philosopher In the Americnn Magazine, "nml then decide to turn over n new lenf nmi greet him like n brother.

Choose from several attractive patterns. Each hag is beautifully fitted and lined. Wonderful values. "The Old Reliable Harness Man." Wend of good government maintain ,hat such an enormous fund was used 'or legitimate purposes? Gifford Pinchot, the republican nominee for gov- irnor in Pennsylvania, who went hrough a much harder fight than Mr, Davis, did not use half this amount and he put out millions of circulars combating the aggressive efforts of the ight and power trust to defeat him in he primaries and in the general elec- ion. It would seem that the verdict of the voters of Illinois on the check iook methods of Mrs. Hanna McConn- ck should convince the Chicago Tribune that the people will not stand for h expenditures for election purposes. AMUSEMENT CRAZY. Emmetsburg Democrat: A few cities in Iowa are Issuing bonds to provide swimming pools for their young people. This seems like downright extravagance under present industrial and financial conditions. The people of our state should be allowed to use some of their hard earnines to pay their debts, their taxes and other obligations and not be forced to hand them over to county treasurers to meet the interest and principal on bonds for swimming pools and other places of special amusement. Our American young people are not in need of anything extra these times in way of entertainment. Scores of them do not care to work and they are amusement crazy. When, they cannot get; money from their parents to enjoy social, athletic and other affairs, some of them will steal, forge checks, hold ur> private individuals and banks and stoop to other lawless conduct. We need sanity in our homes and we should oppose wild extravagance in the expend! - ture of public money. petty In another town, taking into account the requirements for local government revenue. Opposed to the change is the argument that it is another drift towards centralized government. Virtually, the people of a taxing district will not be taxing themselves but will be directed by a higher and. outside source. The gain In efficiency may be offset by tha loss of local control over local affairs. Fertilizer Men to Meet Here December 22.

Mason City Gazette: The very intemperance with which democratic and insurgent senators are assailing President Hoover will defeat the purpose which inspires it so far as the public is concerned. Americans would give heed to a reasoned argument that Mr. Hoover's policies are unsound or that he has fallen short of expectations in his term as chief executive. But embittered attacks which hold , the president up as an imbecile or as a ! crook cannot but throw the entire case arminst him into discount. William Randolph Hearst is devoting double column editorials on the first pa;;es of his numerous newspapers to caustic assaults upon the president's espousal of the world court. In them Mr. Hoover is pictured in various roles, ranging from "agent of the house of Morgan" to "ally of the European nations." Here too a handicap is assumed bv Mr. Hearst in his bull-headed stand that world court adherents are either dumb or disloyal. Veterans of the World War, speaking through the American Legion, have repeatedly taken a stand favorable to the world court. Would Mr. Hearst say that the men who fought in the last war haven't a right to take steps such as they believe wise to prevent the recurrence of war? Are they too what Mr. Hearst accused President Hoover of being? The fact is that when in argument the proponent of a cause has to resort to abuse and charges of insincerity or dishonesty, he has made a irretrievable concession of weakness in the minds of those who ultimately judge the merits of a case. Mr. Hearst will learn this. So will Senators Caraway, Robinson, McKellar, et al. home here. Mrs. J. T. Welfare and Mrs. Chas. Hilferty were transacting business at Bricelyn Tuesday. «— • The Swea City basket ball boys played the local team here Friday evening. The local team was defeated. The W. F. M. society met Thursday afternoon with Mrs. Ed. Knoner. A very interesting study was held. Mrs. A. J. Galagan and Mrs. Wm. Weinberger returned home Thursday after spending a week visiting with relatives in Minneapolis. BANCEOFT NEWS.

One little heart made glad costs less and is worth more than a barrel of gasoline. Let us hope that December 25 will be another Christmas, not merely "another day" for every cliild in this vicinity. Grandpa Neville NO MOKE GAS TAX WANTED. The Sheldon Mail is of the opinion that three cents a gallon for gasoline h plenty. Here is the view of Paul C. WorxlB, its editor: Th»; Iowa I/eague of Municipalities would like to have UK pay another cent tax on our ua«ol!ne, making it four ctfiis i>i.-r gallon. The extra cent would v.ii to th«; citifeK and towns for their ttrttt improvement. The Idea of hav- inij gome money gathered in this way t/i improve city and town streets is alrij/ht, aft the corporations are entitled to some of the tax money—but tuxt-s are high enough now. City people uw; the country roads more than the rural people use the city streets. Good country roads assist country people in getting Into town to spend their money and we have got to have their money or we don't get much from anywhere. So let's keep on building the country roads rather than raise the taxes right now. First let's get some more gravel farm to market roads. TOWNSHIP ASSESSORS. Swea City Herald: 'Observers of the Iowa method of taxation are coming to think more and more that town and township assessors will be eliminated, possibly in the not distant future, and county assessors working the year through will be substituted. The argument in favor of the change is that trained persons can be obtained, resulting In a more satisfactory spread of levies. There always has been complaint about taxes as among properties in a taxing district, as well as inequalities that arise among the taxing districts thmselves. Thus, a residence property in Swea City may pay more or less than identically the same pro- Miss Marion McGuire was an Algona caller Thursday afternoon.
