City Iowa as Second Glass Matter A DAILY Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force that thols rule the Emerson l WALTERS able Iowa newspaper man in an address ot Charles City one night this week drew at tention to the contribution made by Colonel Charles A Lindbergh in elevating the standards of newspapers The news story which can stay on page 1 for ho asserted is indeed a whopper But Lind bergh is Just as good onthe first page today as he was a year ago when he flew across the Atlantic And In Hiat year there has been only one transcendaiH crime lory the Hiclunan murder case and it has not received have received without the influ Answers the attention it would of Surely Lindbergh has proved an antidote to the em phasis which previously was placed by newspapers on the the life about us Charles B Driscoll another newspaper man from whom the GlobeGazette has quoted at limes in the past has an interesting estimate of Lindbergh and his po tenlialities for good He writes I am convinced that lie is Hie tiesl most suli slantial anil most centime hero for everyday worship that any tuition ever produced I am runridciil that tie will not grow sluuldy or cheap from Ion wear It is one ihinc to bo a hero for u lew wceUs It is another thing ti be a young hero must con tinue to bo a hero tor years perhaps for a long life time I cannot help comparing the heroship of Lind bergh to tlial of Richmond Pearson Hobsou who was one of tho most wildly Declaimed heroes nation ever enjoyed in 18U8 Mr Holisons slattis of na tional liero did nut lasb laug He yielded to tde temp tation lo uermit Hie girls to kiss him and when lie had been kissed by many thousands the nation didnt waiit iiim for ajiero any more I dont blame liiibson But thidbergh doesnt allow any ikissirig He maintains Is a wonderful thing for so young do And he doesnt permit himself to be exploited vulgarly for pay Hes the most heroic ol tliem nil Now Lindbergh Is Roinj to Kiirape again by nir Im all for it I think tile whole scheme is con ceived In good sense good taste stiff gooil judgment Some weelis ago I that Mr Lindbergh IIB sent about the world as the American ambassador ofgoodwill to visit every country an earth Some of my readers wrote me that this would lie shameful risking ot the young heros life I cotilil see their mini of view but I still thot it n great scheme Imth from llin standpoint of JLindliergli anil from lie stand point of our national and iiumariifarian interests Now the plan seems to he on Hie lo accomplish ment Of course Ijindbcrsh ivill visit Sweden the land of his fathers Sweden will take him lo her heart The Swedes are among the greatest people on this round globe but they dont make as much noise as some of us so they nre not generally estimated at heir true worth I lived among the Scandinavians in Minnesota for three years and married the daugh ter of two unlives of Swollen So I speaH with some authority when I say hut the longer ami belter you know tlio Swedes tlie liellcr you like Hiem Lindbergh will malto the crossing safely and will demonstrate thu advantages during the xvsrjiier months of the far northern route o Kuropc Before he is niuoli older I expect lo see Lindbergh cross to liuropo over this North Pole Thats a pioneering job for Ilia Viking Hes a real pessimist indeed who cant extract snmc satisfaction

President Coolidge has proved disappointing to farmers and others who are Interested in seeing agriculture placed on a parity with other llnta oC Industry It was not surprising however When the president first killed the bill he wag open to and received come wellbaaed criticism from fondpro ducera but In turning his back on the newest relief plan he was merely playing a consistent role Many of those who aJe expressing greatest surprise and disappointment knew from the start that the meas uie would meet with a veto death In fundamentals II was not materially different from the earlier bills Earlier the president made something of nn allcrna live proposal but In this instance he appears not to have made tangible suggestion along this line Herein lies the principal justification for severe censure As a matter of practical business as distinguished from farming the it would seem that some of Ihoso most active In pushing the McNaryHaugcn hill ought to have sought to present a measure which would meet the presidents objections At any rate Its high time The Daybook of a New Yorker By CLARK KINNAIRD THE VAGABONDS Mrs Bobolink looked at her husband and smiled You always call
