The trag-dy. picked up Nearly a score of recent robberies that have taken place in Des Moines and Lee counties were believed solved last night with the arrest of Arthur Post and Robert Stack, according to Sheriff Delbert Murray. A truck load of loot, which county officials and police say Post and Stack stole, was brought to the police station. An automobile belonging to John L. Glass, 803 Jefferson street, which was stolen from South Main street December 10, was also recovered, and the two men being held are accused of the theft. The arrests were made by Murray and Police Captain R. E. Goodman. Sheriff Fred Weismann and Deputy Harry Coles of Lee county took Post and Stack to Ft Madison last night. Efforts will be made to secure indictments against the men in both counties. Arrested On Farm The officers of both counties have been working on the robberies for several days, they said last night Post and Stack have been living in an old Motor Boat club shack in Green Bay bottoms for more than a week. They were arrested on a farm on Flint creek. The loot was found at the same place. Among robberies believed to have been solved with the arrests are included the recent breaking Into of the Dry Branch school, where two snare drums and two lamps were stolen; the Will Herminghausen home In Ft. Madison and the Messek residence in Lee county. IJst of Loot Included in the many articles recovered are the following:    One    gas Last Call Is In For Goodfellows A few weeks ago when Miss Harris, secretary of the Social Service league, and Mr. Goodfellow talked matters over, things weren’t very encouraging. "There are scores of little children right here in Burlington to whom Santa Claus just, simply can’t come,” said Miss Harris, and then she told of ’‘cases '—little boys and girls who have faith in Santa Claus, who have every right to expect a few little toys, some candy, on Christmas morning. But necessities must come first and all resources were being extended to provide food and fuel and shelter. ‘‘But the kids must have their Christmas joys, they are too little to understand ‘depression’ and ’economic conditions,’ we just can’t let their little hearts bear the burden of disappointment,” insisted Mr. Goodfellow and he and Miss Harris called upon Chief Ostertag of the fire department and the campaign was launched for the children.

A A 20.—Senate has been in session almost a month, and just passed the very bills that President Hoover suggested in the first hour that It met. They could have passed ’em the second hour, but no, that wouldn’t give ’em a chance to denounce. A foreigner coming here and reading the congressional record would say that the president of the United States was elected solely for the purpose of giving a senator somebody to call a horsethlef. And the dumb part about it is they have played right into the president’s hands, for there is nothing the people believe in any more than someone the senate is denouncing. Six months like that and Hoover w*ould be elected by acclamation.

More and more our people are becoming interdependent. A few are practically independent, but the mass are connected with large producing organizations. Their welfare depends not only on their own efforts and skill, ut on the ability and success of the manage-ment of some large concern. Only if the concern prospers are they secure. That is why the government encourages industry. It is difficult to assist the wage earner directly, for he can be benefited by profitable to employ him. of our public service companies and industries feel ^ muon restricted by elgisaltion and regulation that ^ operate profitably and so cannot employ wage -uch complaitns merit careful consideration.
