right for neat mur ders admitted one day that he had murdered Mrs Alvln Crcenwaldt on order of the husband Twentyfour hours later both Belzhold and Greenwaldl had been sentenced to life Imprisonment and almost as soon they were on their way to Waupun the state peni tentiary Thats the Wisconsin system justice The writer remembers another demonstration of dispatch in the days when he was reporting police news in Milwaukee Two Chicago bandits early one morning held up a jewelry store nnd were captured in their at tempt to escape At 9 oclock that morning they were facing the judge in i preliminary hearing At 10 oclock they were before Judge Backus for the sentencing and before than 12 hours after the were on their way to Waupun starting a 25 year sen lence Tho one may disagree usually with the Wisconsin idea of politics one must respect n system of justice which makes punishment for crime sure and speedy as well ns severe THREE THE OBSERVING Advertising Rates Furnished on Application Entered at ths Postofflce at Mason City Iowa SecondClass Matter TWO UN1VEUS1TY HEADS One has a suspicion that this editorial headed In difterently from the Chicago Tribune Is a studied attempt on the part oC the writer to arouse the wrath ot Wisconsin but theres need for Just the kind awakening that is invited in this attack One radical university professor spells fame v faculty composed of radical professors spoils no toriety A university manned with a radical faculty and headed by a radical president means that that university will win the reputation of being slightly off eventual disrepute and oblivion We are moved of course by the University of Wisconsin where the dwindling of tho Jt O TC is hut one ot tho runny manifestations ot the institutions pacifist charactor A university is necessarily it it is to fulfill its function of teaching tho young lo think a place where freedom of opinion find speech should be fos tered The radical professor is an essential tonic Uut when trustees president faculty and student body all seem to be so overwhelmingly enthused over one iacflcal view then radicalism becomes not tonic but toxic One nut is an amusement A bunch of nuts is nn asylum It is worth noting that of the Wisconsin faculty members quoted in a recent nruclo the pacifists and Internationalists were professors ot the more abstract sciences Dr Frederic L Paxson whoso research and writings have made him a leading authority oil the history ol the frontier is i professor oC fact and realism And he is a nationalist he served in the war and would serve again He doubts whether military training has a place In the university but he does not doubt military training They are too Indifferent to study tho essentials ot the Dr Iaxsou sums up the attitude of the University ot Wisconsin pacifists Which is perhaps the most telling comment possible concerning a group which prides HseIC on its Intellectual activity and its honesty of Judgment That nation which thru indifference or something else led Into a policy of unpreparedness when the remainder of the world is both prepared and willing to fight Is Indeed riding to a fall The Wisconsin plan carried to its logical conclusion would have just this effect The situation has its serious aspects After one has laughed or scolded at this treatment of the problem In the editorial from the Tribune he may tarry to con sider the matter In its proper proportions Its no laugh ing matter Mere brilliance which admittedly the president of the University of Wisconsin possesses in an uncommon de gree Is not enough In Itself to qualify ono to head a uni versity Theres need for the kind of courage and com mon sense found in President David Klnley ut the University of Illinois Despite the slurs of those who hold the opposite view I stilt bclievo that patriotism Is a virtue the defense of country and home and freedom a he declared In answer to the propaganda of pacifists who would abolish compulsory military training In the universities and col leges of America Theres probably an intimate connec tion between the presidents view on tho subject and the fact that the Illinois reserve officers training corps with an enrollment ot is the greatest in the country Says President Kinley In view of the discussion of the advisability oC continuing compulsory military training or indeed voluntary military training In the universities of the country it seems not Inappropriate to present my own views on the Dr Klnley said With reference to the methods adopted by some to force out of our colleges and universities the train ing given under the It O T C law sny thnt In my opinion the proper people to decide this ques tion ara those put in charge of the universities bv the people of their states While admitting the right of ftny citizen to express his opinion on the procedure of any public Institution it seems to me entirely improper for outsidersto try to force their views upon the people of Institutions ot a particular state or to sow dissension and arouse ngftution by propa ganda among the students of the institutions them selves There are some opponents of military education who go to the extreme of calling soldiers declaring that all war Is iniquitous nnd that the great committed is the taking of human life in In my opinion these views indicate a perver sion of moral values I have little respect for ths man who faints at the sight of blooit but does not hesitate to assassinate peoples reputations There nre some things In my opinion more valuable than life They aro worth fighting for They are worth dying for I cannot understand Blill less sympathize with the man who says he would not fight or dio if need be to save the honor ot his mother or his wife or his slater to protect his country from the rapacity of in J vaslon or to maintain such liberty of person and opinion and life as we Americans think we have re ceived from our forefathers as a blood bought Theres an essential difference between Iresldcnt Klnley and President Frank that is nil to the good the nation of DESIRE AND FULFILLMENT A Mason City printer not given ordinarily to philo sophical musings in reading a magazine article the other evening came upon a quotation which Interested him He went on with the story only to come back to it again and again At last he decided to copy It Here it is That which we seek and do not find becomes more precious thni our not fliiditiK it the beauty nf he olijecl Is 5n the strength of the desire and which is weakened by fulfillment Is made richer Ty Those who wnnt and do not have will find much of comfort In such a philosophy who have achieved their objectives and those who are richly bestowed with material things undoubtedly lose some of Ihe richest en joyment of life In not being able to wish for something they can never have This printer was a good Judge of good philosophy The man who Invented the luminous golf ball to permit of nightplaying has excited the hope among some flap pers that there may eventually be a luminous lipstick too THEY CANT PROVE IT An explorer argues that science shows the possibility of there being life of somcklnd on some planets or some of the stars The topic is safe enough No one can prove he is wrong There is a cash award waiting for tho first person who talks to Mars claimed it but no one has FOR A FACIAL SCAR A girl whose cheek was scarred in an automobile acci dent asks for the loss of her beauty The scar is about three inches long and a quarter of an inch broad Some will say is too much Others will argue that it is not enough Appearance does make a difference It makes some people welcome us and others disdain pur company Answers to Questions Any reader can get the answer to nny question by writing tho

Syndicate A scientist at the famous Leeds meeting of the Brit ish Association for the Advancement of Science traced uack the rhythmic Instinct of mankind now flowering In jazz to period early in evolution when animal life was represented on this planet by flagellate cells waggling their tails forever back and forth to capture their food find their mates escape dangers The Instinct thus em bedded In the cells said the learned man persists in tholr descendants now Incorporated In our bodies nnd hence we love the recurrent throb of drums the beat of poetry the swingof the dance Perhaps there is another demonstration of the theory in the fact that Professor Charles T Brues ot the Bussey Institute has found In the hot springs and geysers of Yellowstone Park nn abundant animal life of the lower forms Water beetles horsefly larva snails various waterbugs crayfish worms were among these small animals that he found existing happily In a continual hot bath 1C the Britishers reasoning explains the love of jazz can one not perhaps find in tho American professors discovery ail explanation for tho Instinct ot to get itself into hot water Certainly that seems to be ns Instinctive an Impulse as tho tapping of tho foot to the wail ot the saxophone Man is born to trouble as the sparks fly Where Is the individual above the age of two who has not deliberately and with his eyes open walked straight into difficulties he might as easily have avoided Where Is theperson who has never yieW eci to the primal urge to take a little flyer in danger just because it is danger Yes even without tile discoverifs ot Professor TJrucs one observant of the human race would be forced to ad mit a ruling penchant for hunting trouble Marriages of a certain sort law suits clont occur entirely against our wills They could be avoided If we would take the trouble to use our Intelligence In getting out of their way But we never clid perhaps we never will Pro fessor shows that sumo low forms of animal life prefer to live in hot water iti it not a profound biological discovery that explains much about the slightly higher form of animal life we call humankind This Is all of course a piece of absurdity based upon the purely verbal connection between hot water and trouble It doesnt n thing Intellectually this hit of driftwood Is on a par with a poor pun But Is there any more reasonable explanation of the trouble hunttng proclivities of men and women It is a markod peculiarity of the species surely And there must be some reason it there is anything in the new psy chology One Minute

any better than that of Iowa in fact not as good generally speaking In one respect however the MInnesotans have the lead They know holy to mark their roads OIK with two good eyes and no Inlclll genco could easily get anywhere In wanted to go by following the signs The thing that particularly Impres ses itself on me is the thoroness will which the secondary roads leading in to towns are marked More and moij highways are becoming ths shortest distance between two points often the slighting of towns and cities And this Is right Its the greatest pooil for the greatest number Th great body of motorists seeking to fcet to their destination in tho quickest practicable time are more to be con sidered than the merchants or oil sta tion men In the village who might Pick up a little extra patronage oc casionally by retaining the primary roads But the point Im getting at Is thai the seeming unfairness of this system which removes primary systems from certain towns can bo remedied to n large extent If the persons charged with marking the roads will BOS that the secondary roads leading to all nearby towns are proprly marked llave find a clerk in ticle there was not one word which had

taking large doses ot olive oil anri orange juico It Is a treatment much advised by quack doctors and laymen After such u treatment the patient is much gratified by the passing ot many firm dark lumps looking like stones Wonderful remedy But gall or any other kind of a etoiie will not rnelt by heat and these lumps will for they are soapy concretions made by tho actloii of tho bile on the olive oil Ot course if there were gallstones small enough to have passed thru the very tiny gall duct Into the Intestines these would come away but they would anyway without the oil Olive oil does not neap up into the gall duct to the gall bladder and liver and dis solve part of the stones BO they could be passed nor does It in any way cfuisethem to be dissolved There is considerable evidence now from animal experi mentation that gall and other stone deficient in vitamin A found most In milk butter cream egga cod liver oil not olive spinach and other greens tomatoes carrots and that these stones having developed in animals by this deficient diet may disintegrate when the animals are fed the vitamin A But this work lias not yet been demon strated on man Dr E H Graham a recognized authority on gall blad der disense tells me that he often has patients come to him bringing pint jars halt filled with stones they have passed after the oMvo oil treatment He demon strates their fallacy by the melting test I asked the doctor whom I met at one of the A M A some questions about gall stones Ona question I aaked was if he had observed any re lationship between overweight and gall bladder Ah1 I know youd come to that Dr laughed the doctor Yes A large percentage of those who have gall bladder trouble with stones are overweight Wo know the nuclei of gall bladder stones are In the groat majority of cases composed of infectious germs which have gained access to the gall bladder and caused an Irri tation with tho resultant precipitation of the bile salts Sorry cant help mumbled Mrs

what a time she was having The poor ladys thumb claw was at the end of her wing and when she wished to bring the moth In her claw to her month she had to close her flapper Since nobody not even a bat
