redistricting plans submitted thus far none has more to commend it than that proposed by S M Torgeson of Worth county It calls for single county districts 23 twocounty districts and 13 three county districts Southern Iowa would have 25 sen ators northern Iowa 24 senators eastern Iowa 25 senators and western Iowa 25 senators Northern Iowa would have 6 single county districts southern Iowa 8 eastern Iowa 10 and western Iowa 4 All in all theres an admirable balance maintained The district which now consists of Kossuth Em met Palo Alto Clay and Dickinson would be split into two consisting of Kossuth and Em met counties and the other consistingof Dickinson Clay and Palo Alto There Is probably no more elo quent example of the need of revising the senatorial map than this 5county district with its total popula tion of 80000 Cerro Gordo county would be a district unto itself Hancock and Franklin would be joined by Wright in a iiew district Winnebago Worth and Mitchell would remain the same Floyd Howard and Chlcka saw would constitute a district as would Butler Bremer and Grundy Hamilton and Hardln would be east together in a district as would Pocahontas and Humboldt This latter combination incidentally would be the smallest In population 27971 of any in the ruxstate j wil What the ultimate fate of the TorgesonElls worth bill will be remains to be seen Up to this time the has shown little inclination to change to such Cerro Gordo MMfWeteter to shire with other counties Equitable representation is a duty Imposed upon by the constitution Our country Is founded on the principle embodied In this Idea For Iowa to delay action longer on this long overdue pro cedure is nothing short ot shameful Surely there Is little about the situation to inspire much confidence BELLAMY THE PROPHET rpDWARD BELLAMY a great thinker a man with vision to see far beyond his times wrote years ago a book called Looking Backward He saw a better world and he made others see it Not long ago a committee at Teachers college Columbia recommended a plan that had been set forth long agT by Edward Bellamy in a book that many thot was merely the work of an impractical dreamer Among the plans of Bellamys Utopia was one for centrally located Kitchens which would furnish small communities thus relieving housewives of some of their drudgery This idea now has the O K of a most modern committee Men who think far ahead of their fellows usually have to suffer a kind of martyrdom They are laughed at Sometimes they are called crazy Some times they are locked up Sometimes they are cruci

MRS COOLIDGES SUCCESSOR AN INTERESTING light on the character of Mrs Herbert is supplied by a writer in the New York Times who tells how during the Boxer rebellion when she and her young engineer husband were living as first white man to see Niagara falls but recent In northeastern China sha surprised a group of mu tinous soldiers In the act of looting her home In stead of screaming she faced them down and com pelled them to leave Correspondents who traveled with the Hoovers on their trip to South America following the election have recalled In terms of praise how Mrs Hoover watched with a solicitous care over a sailor who had to be operated on while the ship was rolling and plung ing In a gale It was a genuine motherly interest Then there ia this recollection of an incident that had Iowa for Its setting After Mr Hoover had made his West Branch speech last summer they motored to Cedar Rapids On the way Mrs Hoover caught sight of a little boy on crutches waving a tiny flag She stopped the car went over to tho child patted him on the head and said something that made him smile In this as In other cases there was nothing theatrical about the ect It was the simple response to a natural Impulse kif So much for the human side of the first lady i Her Intellectual measure may be drawn from tha fact that she tolled over Agrlcolaa books on metals l written In medieval Latin and produced translation that has not beensurpassed Since her marriage to Mr Hoover this Iowa girl has traveled to tha ends of the earth Like her husband she is a cosmopolite to a greater extent than anybody who ever presided over the white house social affairs It would be difficult to pay a higher compliment than to say that In every way she bids fair to be a worthy successor to Mrs Coolidge Iowa is going to be proud of Its Lou Henry TO THOSE WHO DIDNT VOTE CITYS It can be called that Your BROADWAY By falter WincheH And Mine call the city manager form of government has gone into Its second phase The argument that with out the attraction of remuneration no able citizens J would be publicspirited enough to seek places on the council has been answered This was true two years ago when the adoption shortly before of the new form of government had kindled a live interest and It wag true In the campaign and election just past when the fire of interest had died down to the ember state As a matter of fact the three or four thousand eligible voters who didnt concern themselves enough with the citys government to go to the polls are getting a city council far more sincere and able than they deserve This willingness of citizens to serve faithfully aware that a slap in the face is often the only reward for a job well the primary guarantee of EUC pess for the city manager government

FLORENCE SMITH VINCENT HIDING IN MUSKRATS DOORWAY PETER haa been in Blrdiand too long to be a bit surprised at this sudden departure of Mr Drake with his family The boy had grown quite use to having his best friends fly off and leave him without a word of fare just as unexpectedly as they haa arrived upon the scene But he couldnt get over feeling a little lonely every time that it happened Somehow Peter just hated to be left behind and once more he wished as he had many times before that he had wlnga so that he could have flown along with Danny Drake and his family It would have been such fun to have gone even a little way with them on the Southern trail Peter wandered mournfully along1 the bank of the pool and was just beginning to feel sorry for himself which as every body knows

Inflammations if you arc Interested Is nothing I can recommend to re il duce overlarge breasts except a general reduction The reason for this is that the breasts in late life not infrequently are the seat of cancer ie there has been some injury to them and massage heavy enough to produce a lessening in their size might possibly injure them Then if it happened that there were already cancer beginnings massage would stimulate them and cause a scattering of the cancer cells For this reason any one who has a lump in the breast or elsewhere should not be continuously examining it to see if it haa brown larger or smaller but should immediately go to have it examined by an expert physician While you say that the other parts of your body have reduced enough you are still considerably over

as he expressed it it would be pre mature to enter into a discussion of farm relief now It was a fortnight almost to an hour following formal announce ment of his appointment before the first press representative was per mitted to pass the new secretarys official portals In the main agri alized himself how useless this was Peter had never had many boys nor girls to play with and he had gotten into the habit of talk ing to himself and now he said right out loud culture departmental building at the foot of Thirteenth street on the Mai then admission waa predfc cated upon tho understanding

markets thru the workings of tho prohibition law The upshot was that the inter view as an Interview fell pretty flat XjOT much remains but to tell hovr 1 the new secretary of agriculture looks For one

Peter had had no idea that it would happen so quickly Then as Peter looked more carefully among the grasses near the bank the boy caught sight of a round hole that he knew at once was the doorway to Mr Miiskrats home and he was almost sure he saw a pointed bill that he was certain did not belong to that gentleman himself sticking out of the entrance As he stared however It disappeared Peter

young people of this community take one another for better or worse they begin their married life with the ambition to get ahead They buy nice furniture usually on the installment plan and when that is paid for they begin to save for a home People who share selfdenial and ambition and plan and achieve to gether arc bound more closely than any other tio could bind them And possessions acquired

Heretofore it has been the custom for the president to receive at noon each day a long line oC tourists and sightseers who woulrl file by and shake his hand Mr Coolidge broke all rccordn at this sorl of thing The first dny he wan ir office he shook Jmndi with 3000 persons He once had to carry his hanci in H sling af ter an especially strenuous day with nlrbnghnndcd tourists Mr Coolidge held that every citi zen who called at he white house was entitled to sec the president and shake hamis with him so never would agree to abolition of the prac tice On just what ground It cnitlr be argued convincingly Hint a pres ident should make a side of himself is nnt clear As a matter of fact the chief executives time in I roost valuable and there seems to ba no valid reason for wasting It to gratify idle curiosity Mr Hoover is Bald to feel that the practice Is both wasteful of time undignified and Accordingly he will grant tha handshaking privil ege only twlco a week Perhaps he eventually will abolish It That is what should be done IJNDYS MARRIAGE Charles City Press It is announc ed that Colonel Lindbergh and Miss Anne Morrow will be married In leafy June an event in which the whole
