Scientists tell us that, the earth is billions of years old. Maybe it is. vho cares. Cana, the scientist, told us that the age of the world found through the study of geology, does not dispute the teachings of the Bible. During the formation, choas existed and time was unknown. A year during the fonna- tion was equivalent to millions of years of the present time. Conditions on earth have been In an upheaval for the past twenty years. It was not the earth's fault but the people who live upon it. During the World war, the greatest conflict in the history of mankind, the earth did Its duty as if nothing was going on. It revolved upon its axis every twenty-four hours, giving us the usual day and night. It made Its annual journey around the sun and the seasons came on scheduled time Old Sol, that great ball of flre, that furnishes both light and heat, placed In the universe by a Supreme Ruler, for the people of the earth, shown as brightly as ever. The birds sang as sweetly and the flowers were as beautiful and fragrant as in previous years. The financial depression is passing .and in a few months will be history. The recent financial disturbances should prove to the people that money Is not a Ood and that other things In life are more precious. Those of v us who have worried and fretted, have gained nothing by it and only by our personal efforts and integrity will we fully recover from our difficulties. The . greatest and most wonderful thing in the world is life with loved ones, health and a disposition that enables us to take the bitter with the sweet. This Is the greatest asset man can have. News and Comment. If a man drinks wet and talks dry or if ,he talks dry and drinks wet, is he a hypocrite?

If a state income tax law Is passed •we presume'^that legislators' salaries •will be exempt regardless of the expense bill. Two weeks from today it will be Senator L. J. Dickinson and Congressman Fred Gilchrist. Sounds mighty good at that. Democrats expect to win the next presidential election. Well, they were cock sure of the last election and Hoover polled one of the biggest votes In history. Some of the men who are backing the income tax law say it can not be a replacement tax. Governor Turner says it must be a replacement tax. Anyhow, it is a tax. Des Moines reported 190 drunks arrested last month. If one out of every hundred who had imbibed was arrested a lot of booze must have been consumed in that city. And now Cornelias Vanderbilt, Jr., threatens to sue General Butler for his Mussolini statement. Evidently a general, after bossing doughboys, forgets how to talk to civilians. Had Al Smith been fleeted president the democrat, party would have been as dead as a door nail for the depression would have come just the fiiii'o. Democrats should bo thankful.

A United States National Boys' Week will take place next month, starting April 27, and ending May 2. A program is suggested by the committee for every day. Saturday, April 25, "Boys' Loyalty Day"; Sunday, "Boy's Day in Churches"; Monday, "Boys' Day in Industry'"; Tuesday, "Boys' Day in School"; Wednesday. "Boys' Day In Entertainment and Athletics";) Thursday. "Boys' Health Day and Evening at Home": Friday, "Boys' 1 Day in Citizenship"; Saturday, "Boys' Day Out of Doors". The boy problem is the greatest problem of today. The boy of today Is confronted witrj a more complex situation than existed when we were boys. In order to meet the many propositions of life with success, some preparation is needed. Boys, naturally assume that they do not amount to much in the estimation of their elders and nothing in the world will give a boy m^re confidence In himself and ambition to amount to something than to be recoghized and treated as if he was somebody by men. It will be but a few years when the boys of today will be the men of the day with all of the responsibilities of the nation and statq. These programs suggested are expected to give the boys <i sense of responsibility and equip him to meet the many obstacles that are in store for him. A boy Is a boy and the old saying, "You cannot put an old head on young shoulders" goes. The boys of today are no 1 worse than the boys of yesterday, perhaps not so bad, and if the men of today can offer them the encouragement and cooperation they deserve the whole world will profit as they assume the resjonsibilitles that sooner or later will come to them, IT SEEMS A HABIT. Conditions all over the world are reported bad. In the United States they are bad enough, but being an optimistic people, we are looking for improvements. Merchandise is coming tfown in price and more can be purchased for a dollar today than for a number of years. Farm produce is so low that it is hardly paying the cost of production. State and local public improvements have increased taxes to a point that makes them a burden to taxpayers. With all these facts railroad men and other corporation em- . even though war time wages are now being paid. During the war when labor was scarce because of the absence of so many men, labor had its own way and while the dough boys were serving their country at a pittance wage, those who stayed at home were waxing fat. As conditions return to normalcy, a readjustment must take place and labor as well as farm produce and other merchandise must come down and the habit formed during tho war times forgotten. quiring every federal income tax pay- «r to file a duplicate of his federal report with the state and then pay a certain per cent additional to the state, but we won't do It that way. Not on your life. We'll do it the expensive way. And that isn't all. We are to be swamped with a series of nuisance taxes, if certain proposals are adopted, ns seems most likely. Business is to be penalized. It's taxes, taxes, taxes. All in the name of what? Economy? Equalization? We don't know, but it begins to look as though no one had thought, of reducing taxes. Fifteen years ago we paid one-fourteenth of our national'income as taxes. Today we pay one-seventh, and the tax burden is constantly, constantly increasing, and yet there are many ways in which taxes could be reduced. We suggest another joint committee be appointed and that this committee be charged with the sole responsibility of finding ways to reduce taxes, not to increase them. SALARY GRAB BILL TABLED. Sac Sun: Harking back only a few months we heard a lot about the so- called "salary grab," through which the senators and representatives at Des Moines voted themselves expense money amounting to about $500 per man. Iowa voters were supposed to be in arms about the matter, and many a legislator went down in defeat at the primary and general election because he voted for this "terrible" bill. At least that's what everybody said. When the legislature convened this winter, Governor Turner advised it to repeal this act. It was supposed to be so unpopular after the casualties of the two recent elections, that no one would dare raise\ his voice in its defense. "What could those fellows have been thinking about to vote for such a thing as that?" was asked time and again. And then the bill to repeal the act came up in the senate—and the senate a few days ago by a vote of 28 to 18 put its arm around the "salary grab" bill, fondly embraced, it and. thereby left it on the statute books. Accordingly the senators and representatives will again be permitted to draw an ex- trax $500 for expenses this year. The Sun Is not setting up the argument that the expense bill is all wrong; perhaps legislators are justified in paying themselves for necessary expenses in addition to their salary. The issue was magnified at the 1920 elections far beyond its real importance. But the significant feature is that after all the noise in the recent campaign, the senators evidently are convinced that the voters did not mean their protests seriously. And thus another burning "issue" falls by the wayside and people will soon forget all about it. tast June a governor was nominated'on the income tax Issue. Is it not possible that before another year rolls around, Iowa voters will have forgotten that the income tax was such an all-absorbing question -once upon a time. HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD. Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune: "It must be a replacement tax," Governor Dan W. Turner declared in his inaugural address as he referred to the proposed state income tax. That is thenubbin of the whole What Do the Oaths of Office of Our Legislators Amount to? (By C. B. Hutchins). Section thirty-four of the constitution of the state of Iowa r.'ys. (See official Register for 1929-30, page 37,) The senate shall be composed of fifty members, to be elected from the several senatorial districts established, b" law and at the next session of the general assembly following the taking of the state and national census,, they shall be apportioned among the. several cour.ti&s or districts of the state according to the population shown by the last preceding census. The Irtst apportionment of the senatorial districts was made in 1882, forty-nine years ago. owever fair the apportionment may have been at that time It certainly Is not fair at the present time. Jackson county with a population of 18,481 is a senatorial district, as is Clayton county with a population of 24,559, while Black Hawk arid Grundy counties constitutes a district with a population of 83,279, and Kossuth, Emmet, Palo Alto, Clay and Dickinson, with a population of 80,795 for one district. Leaving out the single county districts, having a population of 50,000 or more, the ratio, if it c6uld be apportioned equally would be 42,697 to each district. As the constitution says, "No county shall have more than one senator and no county may be divided in the apportionment, the next thing to be done is to approximate as nearly as possible to the ratio. As now apportioned there Is one district with less than 20,000 population, 7 between 20 and 30,000, 15 from 30 to 40,000, 11, 40 to 50,000, 4, 50 to 60,000, 5, 60 to 70,000, 2, 70 to 80,,000, 3, 80 to 90,000, and two over 90,000. Four plans for apportionment have been proposed, no two of them alike. The plan which seems to me to be the fairest has 14 between 30 and 40,000, 26 between 40 and 50,000, three between 50 and 60,000, three between 60 and 70,000, one between 70 and 80,000, one between 80 and 90,000 and two over 100,000. Legislature after legislature has purposely and intentionally failed to carry out the plain provision of the constitution. Apparently for the personal reasons on the part of some of the senators, who might or might not be disturbed by* a new apportionment. Three of the present senators, according to the Tribune-Capital of Saturday are concocting a bill to provide for no apportionment at this session. The constitution says it must be done during the first session after a state or United States census. Now is the time that the constitution would per- mit it to be done until 1937. The senators sponsoring this bill are Blackford of the second district composed of Jefferson and Van Buren counties with a population of 28,884. Kent of the fourth district, Lucas and Wayne counties, population 28,010. Knudson of the 37th district, composed of Hamilton, Hardln and Wright counties, with a population'of 64,412. Knudson's district has a population greater by 6,6697 than beth districts of Blackford a»d Kent. I think it will readily be seen why Blackford and Kent might wish to have the districts unchanged. Their districts would have to be enlarged, with the possobility that some one else might be selected to fill their places in the next session. Can it be possible that self-Interest is governing the action of these senators? Rather than that other parts of the state should be accorded its just share of representation. I cannot see why Mr. Knudson should wish to defer the apportionment, as every plan proprosed reduces the numbers in his district to a trifle over two-thirds of what it now is. Their plea for deferring apportionment is that there is more important matters to be attended to and such action should be begun in the senate. I take issue on both these points. What is more important than that the fundamental law of the state be obeyed and that our legislators respect their oaths of office? Any one of the 108 members of the house has just as good a right to introduce a bill for reapportionment as any senator or any number of senators. From past experience, it is mighty certain, that no move for a change will ever be made by any senator representing districts like Blackford and Kent. The average population of the eleven largest districts, outside of the single county district is 63,774. The average population of the smallest districts is 25,598. The average population of the largest twenty is 55.673, and of the seventeen smallest is 32,080. There are thirteen single county districts. Outside the single county districts there are seven having greater population than Blackford's x and Kent's combined, and four others lacking only a little, the most less than 3,000, the least only fifty. Is it not strange that legislators of this day and generation for personal or political reasons will take and keep such an advantage as part of the districts have had over other districts for more than thirty years. Again I ask, What do the oaths of office of our legislators amount to? Washington News By Fred Holmes, Wash. Correspondent for the TJ. D. M.-R. February 16.—February tenth was the thirty-second anniversary of the OTHER EDITORS NOT HOOVER, BUT CONGRESS. Emmetsburg Democrat: T. B. Vandercar of West Bend was a caller Friday. Though a republican practically all of his life, he feels satisfied that the large corporations are practically in charge of the national organization and that it will take a supreme effort on the part of the mases of our people to drive them from power. This is evident to all observing, thinking men in the two leading political parties Because of the powerful influence of the administration press and the numerous office holders, the voters do not learn the actual truth about the management of affairs in congress. With a few exceptions, this has continued for nearly sixty years. As Mr. Vandercar says, the people of agricultural Iowa have lost faith in Hoover. They should .support public leaders of integrity and courage regardless of their political professions. There are thousands of Iowa republicans who are commencing to take the attitude of Mr. Vandercar. The political future of G..VI rnor Dun Turnt'r depend;, mikh upon il'.c Mull: of tl'f- pre;:c-nt legislature, il he can hoid ihem down to sen: ibie bills Hint appeal to the public, a:; riehi but if a few damphool laws that are unpopular are passed, it will be "JU:A too bad." We doubt if Edyai Lee Musters, '.'IK' writer who ha.s defamed the character of Abraham Lincoln will ever hi'ivc a monument erected to his memory or be even mourned upon his death. Tho American people love the beautilul stories of Lincoln and Masters nor any other wiiter will ever be able to break down this love and respect. MAY INCREASE TAX BURDEN. Spencer News-Herald: There is now before the 44th general assembly of Iowa the proposals made by the joint committee on tax revision and the state board of assessment and review, together with Governor Turner's re- commndations, and there is very little doubt but what the proposals will be ena.'Tec! into law and it won't be lonq before we shall have some new taxes to pay here in good old Iowa. And we are wondering. \V"e arc wondering if we really will have l".-.s to pay In the future than we have bet n payini! in the past. Wo read i'l these proposals various sug- Ki'.aions to increase taxation but find very little which indicates that they are to be reduced. We fear the re- M:K. is not.

If we charge more ihan neighbor!!,;; . t.aes we arc penal- i/lny our citii" i n.s '.or living in our sta'.i, and surely \v dun't want to do that. Also we are Ukely to make the t'.\|jen.'.e cf •joliectiny the tax greater than the tax itself justifies. We could eliminate that ieuture to a certain ex- •cnt by the Minple procedure of re- ing to object to paying a tax on his income if it reduces his property tax. Moreover, a state income tax should result in a lot of fellows who are paying no property tax whatever getting into the taxpaying bandwagon. The people are watching the legislature more closely than ever before. They are demanding relief from present tax burdens. They mean business. They'll not be pleased if when the smoke of the session has cleared away, they find no diminution of property taxes and a tax on incomes of $1000 and over hooked on in addition. MASTERS DISGRACED HIMSELF. Sac Sun: Edgar Lee Master is the latest to bid for fame through traducing an honored man. It was he who declared last week that Abraham Lincoln was a cold, slick, crafty, dishonest politician. Masters brought no disgrace on Lincoln. Rather, Masters suffered and will suffer for the charge. GOD HELP THE TAXPAYER. Sac Sun: The demand for decreased taxes is rampant in legislative halls, but the legislatures seem to be only looking for something else to tax. Page Frazier Hunt, Boys Are Drinking, Ringsted Dispatch: Last Saturday night at about eleven o'clock when 300 and 400 dancers were in full swing at the Central pavilion at Arnolds Park, Sheriff Paulson and a large force of deputies made an arrest of seventeen young men on whom they found twenty-three hip flasks, containing 11- tiucr. There is probably not a public dance held anywhere now days but what some drinking goes on. If the hip flask boys are spotted and arrested it will do a lot towards stopping drink- 1 ing at dances. Pete is the Best in His Profession. Whittemore Champion: A. L. Peterson, well known Algona photographer, was a Whittemore visitor Thursday. Time was when A.'L. was no stranger in Whittemore, having maintained a studio here and making regular visits. Great strides have been made in photography since those days, as in everything else, and Mr. Peterson has kept abreast of the times. He is recognized everywhere as one of the best in the profession. ionsin led the attack on the agreement entered into by republican and democratic leaders of the senate and the house and approved by the president. The Wisconsin senator said he regretted he could not accept the interpretation placed upon the agreement by Senator Robinson of Arkansas, the democratic leader, and Senator Caraway, his colleague, both of whom defended the agreement when it was laid before the senate. * * » President Hoover has contributed one-tenth of his salary to the Red jpross fund for the relief of drought ^r, our nosning was arranged in me • „»,_„,.. fmi^cnn t n .r<*n Tiirptnn way of a celebration of tne event at the Whiter House. Neither the president nor Mrs. Hoover gave any inkling of the anniversary day to those with whom they came in contact, and it was not until several congratulatory messages were received from old friends in California that the wedding anniversary became known about the White House executive offices. * * • It was on February 10, 1399, that Herbert Hoover, just back to the United States from a mining expedition in Australia, and Miss Lou Henry, whom he had met when they were undergraduates at Leland Stanford University, were married in Monterey, California. Almost immediately after their marriage the couple sailed for China, where they lived for several eventful years while Mr. Hoover was directing a mining project. * * * George W. Wickersham, chairman of President Hoover's committee on prohibition, former President Coolidge, Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt of New York, and other notables have been invited to give their views on a proposed national constitutional convention to consider repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment before the Ohio Senate Judiciary committee on Wednesday evening, February 18. The invitation was sent by Senator L. L. Marshall, republican, Cleveland chairman of the committee and author of a joint resolution petitioning congress to call a national constitutional convention for consideration of retention, revision or repeal of the Eighteenth Am- mendment. In case they are unable to attend they are asked to send their views. Gilchrists Have Narrow Escape. I Pocahontas Democrat: Mr. and Mrs. Fred C. Gilchrist, of Laurcns, narrowly ('.scaped death at Ames, Tuesday morning, when the auto which they vure driving stalled before an oncoming train. They drove onto the crossing just as the gates closed. With the train but 100 yards down the track, the auto stalled directly in its path. They both jumped from the auto before the crash came, and escaped injury. The car was wrecked. Mr. and Mrs. Gilchrist had been at Des Moines visiting witli friends and were on their way home to Laurens when the accident happened. President Hoover has signed Wagner-Graham bill providing the for advanced planning in federal construction as a means of maintaining employment in times of business depression. Mr. Hoover expressed the view that while the measure could not be considered a cure for depression it does provide means for improved organization for relief in times of economic strain. The president had warm praise for the sponsors of the measure, Senator Wagner, democrat, of New York, and Representative Graham, republican, of Pennsylvania, and Otto T. Mallary or Philadelphia, anc Edward Eyre Hunt of the Department of Commerce. Mr. Mallary and Mr Hunt, he said, contributed largely to the development of the ideas which the measure proposes to translate into action. • • * President Hoover has added a vigorous alien deportation drive to the immigration restriction policy adopted to conserve employment for American labor. He sent a special message to the j house asking $500,000 to -allow an increase of 245 in the number of the patrol engaged in deportation work. Labor department statistics show an increase from 12,900 in the number of aliens reported In the fiscal year 1929 to 10,600 in 1930. "We know that there are more deportable aliens in the country than there should be," Immigration Commissioner Hull has informed the house appropriations committee. "The only reason that I can assign is that we do not have money enough to do the work." • » 9 Characterizing the so-called compromise agreement on the relief measure for the drought stricken and unemployed as an "unconditional surrender," Senator LaFollette of Wis- posal for relief for these people. But The new For«I is an economical car to own and drive Low first cost* ton) cost of operation and up-hcep 9 and low yearly depreciation mean a distinct saving to every purchaser • THE NEW FORD is a splendid car to own and drive because of its attractive lines and colors, safety, comfort, speed, reliability and long life. There are, in addition, three other features of importance to every far-seeing automobile owner . . . low first cost, low cost of operation and up-keep, and low yearly depreciation. During the life of the car, the day-by-day economy of owning a Ford will amount to considerably more: than the saving on the first cost. You save when you buy the Ford and you save every mile you drive. Tho reasons for this economy are simplicity of design, high quality of materials and care in manufacturing and assembling. Many vital parts are made to limits of one one-thousandth of an inch. Some to three ten-thousandths of an inch. Throughout, tho new Ford is an outstanding example of fine craftsmanship in automobile engineering. The more you see of the new Ford—the more you talk to Ford owners and experienced mechanics—the more certain you become of this fact. ... It brings you everything'you want or need in a motor car at an unusually low price. THE NEW Foni»> TUDOR SEDAN.

' * * * Senator Caraway of Arkansas, in a radio address on the drought /situation said he was sorry if he had made any unkind remarks about Pre'sident Hoover. "I had been thoroughly convinced the people of my state, and other states were hungry and cold ana threatened with disease and starvation," he said. "Feeling this way I fought with every weapon at my dis- now that an agreement has been reached I am laying down my arms and if I have said anything unkind I am sorry and want to apologize. I realized that Mr. Hoover was president and had his responsibilities. But I felt relief should be provided and I fought for it. If I said anything unkind about him I am sorry." Senator Caraway said the relief agreement reached by senate and house leaders was 'satisfactory" to him. * * «. Holding that convict labor is used in j the production of lumber and pulpwood in four districts of the White Sea in northern Russia, the \treasury department placed an embargo on both products. Secretary Mellon announced the finding on evidence presented to the department. The treasury decision places the burden of proof on the importer of these products to show that they are not produced by convict labor. In effect, the ruling bars importations cf lumber and pulpwood unless the importer is able to prove that only free labor has entered into their production, loading and transportation. * * * The plan of the soviet government to force women into, industry is another manifestation of the dictatorship's intention to sabotage the world's economic system. Moscow is determined to expand industrial production for the purpose of flooding the world with cheap products, to the end that foreign industry may be swamped while the soviet draws in gold. It will sell at any price. The "cost of production" means nothing, when both land and labor can be kept under the lash the soviet can flood the world with goods. * • • The senate campaign funds committee has decided to inquire into the handling of anti-Smith campaign funds in Virginia in 1928, by Bishop James Cannon, Jf., of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. Officials of three banks have been summoned to appear before the committee. * * * A bill to authorize the treasury department to place the portrait of Geo. Washington on the quartet dollar was introduced by Representative Randolph Perkins, republican, of New Jersey, chairman of the committee on coinage, weights and measures. The design of the quarter would be changed, Mr. Perkins said, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Washington's birth. The intention of the bill was to place the new quarters in circulation at face value and not as a special coin issue to be sold at premium.'. Under the present law the design of the quarter may be changed not oftener than once every twenty-five years. The present coin was adopted In 1916. $430 to F.O.I?. Detroit, plut freight and delivery.

Estherville Enterprise: The state police patrol proposed for the state of Iowa will be a very desirable feature, but will cost a lot of money. The latest design by the legislature is to have the expense of the patrol saddled on the gas tax. Governor Turner has declared that the gas and auto taxes shall be kept sacredly for the payment of the road bonds issued by the various counties, so that proposition will be thrown into the discard. The question then is, Is the state patrol worth what it will cost? Is the state of Iowa in need of this expensive police enlargement badly enough to allow for the added expense? Minnesota to Pave Road Number 5. Blue Earth Post: No more gravel to be placed on No. 5 between Blue Earth, Winnebago and the north county line, so we are told. .The work of placing the road bed in shape for paving will be commenced by the contractors the first thing in the spring, and all gravel hauling will go to the preparation of the detour for traffic. The probabilities are that the highway stiralght north from the Clarence Gaylord farm to the east and west gravel road from Delavan will be used, but whether the traffic will be detoured. from Delavan to Good Thunder and into Mankato, or via Mapleton to Mankato, we know not. But there is belief that No. 5 will be in no shape for traffic this year, at the earliest. Taxpayers Should Show in Background.
