CARELESS DRIVING. Anyone who drives a car Is liable to tare an accident, no matter how eare- lully they may drive, but nearly all accidents result from careless or reckless driving. The cars sold during the past two years have a foot pedal to drop the lights so that the lights are not thrown Into the face of an oncoming driver, yet many never use It and take a chance of blinding the other driver, which frequently results In a collision. The sane and sensible driver •will drop his lights whether the other feftow does It or not and can usually see the road directly before the car much better. During the past month lour women have been killed by cars In this locality. The death of one was due to a hit and run driver, who has not been found. Two were killed when • flat tire caused the car to turn over and the other on a cross road. The oar hit had stopped for an Intersection and had started to cross the highway. Some one waa careless and a lady lost her life. Many cross roads are dangerous and too much precaution can sot be taken. Racing down a highway at fifty, sixty or more miles on hour Is dangerous at Its best and we doubt that with our present laws on speed •whether a patrol or licensed driver •would make much difference. It Is a known fact that some drivers are safer at fifty than others are at thirty miles an hour and the question Is to decide constitutes Comments of an Old Lawmaker Over 80,000 ' Former Iowa Residents Meet at Annual Gathering in West. OVER 200 KOSSUTH FOLKS ATTENDED. on what actually reckless driving. When one drives across the country he can not help but wonder that the accidents are not more numerous than they are. IT'S A BAD PICTURE. The whole United States has been passing through a period of depression and the past year is no exception. The strange part of the story is that the banks are bulging with money, the corn cribs and granaries contain a surplus of crops with the prices below cost of production and many farmers are going bankrupt. No one has the confidence needed to insure prosperity. Factories are closed or running part time and every city has bread lines to feed the thousands of unemployed. There Is just aa much money as there (By Hon. C. B. Hutchlns). Well, as you know, the legislature is not in session, so I guess I shall have to scramble another letter for you. I never could see any sense In the legislature adjourning for ten days Just at the time when it ought to be getting down to business, necessitating as It does, that much later in the spring, If work is done that ought to be done before adjournment can be had. I may not be well posted, but I believe this legislature has completed less legislation during the time It has been In session than any other legislatlure during the last twenty-five years in the same length of tune, and it has before It some of the most important measures that have been before the legislature in fifty years. I consider the tax question, the county assessor bill and the attendant measures, which must be passed, if they are, for their successful working, the most important for the interests of the people of the state as a whole, that has been before any legislature for fifty years, and I saw in one of the papers the statement that there was danger of its not being passed, that the vacation and the going home of the members was not conducive to its passage, that some of the members, who were a little weak in their knees might be Influenced to vote against the measure, who otherwise might have been In favor of It. It is strange to me, that any man of ordinary, common business ability, who has had an opportunity to examine our present assessment and taxation methods, and seen the expenslxe, Inequitable, crude manner by which it Is carried out, can for a minute argue In Its favor. New Assessor Law Favored. One of the crudest things, about the present law, is that it requires the assessment to be made during the months of January, February and March, when the days are short, the weather cold and the ground oftentimes covered with snow so that a fall- Judgment cannot be rendered as to the quality of soil, etc. When the state was new, practically all property was In farm lands. It was absolutely necessary then that the assessors should be selected from the farmers, and that the assessment areas should be small Miss Alice Mann, Daughter of Pioneer Irvington Family, Gives Wst of Those Present.

If anybody visiting in Des Moines wishes to spend a day, week or montl interestingly go to the State Library I spent an afternoon there this week Willie looking around I heard a lady say to her companion, "You could spend six months here and see some thing new every day." Next to the government library at Washington, think it one of the most interesting places where an lowan can go. I wa particularly interested in the plctun gallery where can be seen the portrait of about 150 distinguished lowan hanging on the walls and If one wishe to take the time thousands of photo graphs of legislators and others. I was particularly Interested in two things One was a hanging, partly revolvin frame of every county in the state not of the county Itself, but the pic tures of the boys who went across an who died of disease or were killed ID the World war, and those who died who did not go across and the Roll of Honor.

I do not ordinarily shed tears easily but I am not ashamed to confess that I could not keep them back when looking at the mute evidences of the curse and horrors of war.

Emmetsburg Democrat: The Des Moines Register has been carrying daily from one to two pages of questions and answers In the State University investigation, which has been in progress for some time. The disclosures make very Interesting reading for those who have sufficient time to go over them carefully. So far they show a lamentable lack of ordinary business methods that would govern a board oi directors In the building of a city hall, school house or hotel in Emmetsburg.

Developments within the last few days, .however, have created a different impression. Smith's foray into North Carolina, a stronghold of the "Hoovercats" in 1928; the character of his address there before the legislature, and his utterances n Washington have combined to produce a belief that he is in a "recep- ive mood" toward the nomination. Even if he doea not secure the nomination, Smith will have more to say about selection of a nominee than any other person in the party. He took occasion at a press interview to deny that there had been any break between himself and Roosevelt. Then he was asked point blank: "Are you for Governor Roosevelt for the democratic presidential nomination next year?' "I do not think I should be askec whom I am for, at a time like this,' he replied. Thirteen senators either by choice or by the vagaries of the ballot, have retired from public life and the forum o the senate, and last to leave with evident regret was "Tom" Heflin, the col orful Alabama orator. Twenty-seven years a familiar figure around thfi leg Islative halls of congress, Heflin wa probably the last senator to leave th familiar surroundings after Vice Presl dent Curtis ended the fllibuster-stlfled seventy-first congress.

The Ben Soren&en residence on South Minnesota street was the scene of a quite serious roof fire last Saturday afternoon. The fire department was called and they had to tear Bway a portion of th« roof to get at the blaze. Chemicals wore uaed wJUcb did some damage to the attic. The fire waa probably started by sparks from the chimney. The invitations were signed by Senators George W. Norris of Nebraska, chairman; Robert M. La Follette, or Wisconsin, and Bronson Cutting of New Mexico, republican Insurgents, and Senator Burton K. Wheeler, democrat of Montana, and Senator-elect Edward P. Costlgan, democrat, of Colorado. Disavowing any intention to try to form a third party, the signers declared that "lack of any proposals (in the now expired congress for the solution of one of the greatest economic crises ever confronting the nation" called for agressive action to that end "If this republic" is to endure. • • • One historical distinction belongs to the congress, which, still full of fire, wound up its career with a flourish The seventy-flrst national assembly holds undisputed record as the heaviest spending peacetime congress. In all it has appropriated about ten billions of dollars for government uses. Besides the nine regular annual supply bills, vast sums were provided at this short session for emergency construction to increase employment and for drought and farm relief. In addition, the permanent appropriations, made automatically, exceed $1,200,000,000 to pay off the national debt, interest on outstanding obligations and provide funds for the veterans' service certificates sinking fund. • * » political maneuvers on the eve of the democratic national committee meet' ing convinced Washington that Alfred E.
