meet you Unless you were a Wild Goose you could have no idea what a pleasure it is to feel there are a few TwoLogs who are kind and friendly We have learned by bitter experience to think they are cruel But now you have come along to prove the exception to the rule I have always said there is no even the TwoLeg bad that there are not some good folks among them Mrs Wild Goose smiled Sn such a friendly way tha the boy couldnt feel angry at her poor opinion of hi race so he said nothing and just smiled back at her The gentle lady continued Of course husband has told you what a devoted family we Geese always does just as soon as he meets any one for the first Ill bet he has spent more time in talking about me than he has about the children To be sure I have and why not demanded her husband There Is only one You and there are ever and ever so many new lot every year Mother Goose chuckled That is what he always says when I scold him or making such a fuss over me Dont you think for a moment tho that Gander doesnt love his children No nor that he isnt proud of them added her husband puffing out his chest Id like to see a finer brood in all the North country or east or south or west either for that matter I was telling boy about our honeymoon Gracie dear and how joyous we and all the other lovers were in those carefree days but we have had many a happy time together since The cares of a growing family have never upset us very much have they If they ever did it was not for long declared Mother Wild Goose I will say that life might have been pretty wearisome for me all those long hours when I used to watch and listen for the first tiny crack In the tiny crack that told me soon my babies would come out into the it had not been for you You stood guard night and day watching watch ing so no danger could come near me And when I grew cramped from sitting on the eggs too long then you would take my place so I could run about and stretch my legs No bird could have been more loyal to his family than you Old Father what you were By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON May is at least two to one dry Maybe a little dryer than that The wets ad mit it And yet anti prohibition sena tors and repre sentatives insist the result would be wet if we were to have a nation al referendum It sounds re dlculous If a majority of the voters are wet why do they send big dry ma jorities to Wash ington time after time voters whim Issues are many and conflicting and primary ballots are cast every which by ona bloc of dyedinthewool drys MIND you the con gressman a primary is only about half an election for only ona party is voting And unless the com munity is exceptionally onftslded the primary vote is not all dry So we are safe in concluding that tho dyedinthewool drys are a minority of the total electorate But it is a solid dependable mi only bloc that the candi date can feel certain of as for or against him However numerous the weta may be they scatter their strength Thus the drys scare the candi dates into a dry declaration Elected he is pledged to them in advance Limu uiter nme n In the interests of science I have reSardess of his personal conviction it this question to a lot

the year WHY NOT COUNTY MANAGERS Minneapolis Journal If a city manager why not a county man ager inquires the Hokah Chief Why not indeed There is no more archaic survival of unit gov ernment forms than the present or ganization of counties in all states While modern development of in dustry and science has progressed to levels undreamed of in th9 philosophy of the Horatios that worked out the machinery of so cietys various concerted endeavors practically nothing has been done to improve county government While states have tended more and more toward centralization of functions lesser units have stood still Political theory has remained unchanged even in the evolution of betterments for these have been mechanistic rather than fundamen tal Why then should not the county government machinery De Improved If there were no other motive i there Is enough in rehabilitating lof cal The other units have largely run away from the counties in efficiency With no reflection intended upon the agents of public service in county offices it is apparent the agencies are far below the mark de served in a progressive community The pianist should not be doing the best he can with the in strument he has to play upon So why not a county manager Why not try to abolish waste in county government as it is contin ually tending to be centralized in other units The Hokah Chief raises a question that merits the study of every citizen who wants better ad ministration better execution of public affairs as they pertain to counties Waverly Iowa A patrolman chaacd a liquor car thru town at a speed of 60 miles an hour later catching up with it out northwest of the town and seizing 50 gallons of alcohol It was an exciting gun fire high speed and other ele ments of as we read we were troubled to think what might have happened to chil dren or old folks in Waverly had they chanced to be in the way and we were about to decide that this liquorenforce ment business was really coming to be a serious menace when we hap pened to think that there isnt a week in any town but what some drunken driver probably subjects cit izens to as much danger as did the abovedescribed chase And tha chances are that if Frank Law had reached Mason City with that 50 gallons of booze there would have been some consequent danger run ning at large there too THE WILD ASS Norlhwood Anchor We have the

contain news stories of protests being made by high schools on decisions rendered by incom pcntent judges in various contests thruout the state The recent music contest at Mason City the district music contest at Belmond as well as many o the declamatory con tests held recently are objects of criticism because of poor judges This would indicate that there are many hard Joscrs That may be However there seems to be a tend ency of authorities in charge to the matter of competent little thot In too many instances the question considered is expense and not one of qualifications While we doubt if one of the pres ent protests will succeed In chang ing the decisions of the judges we do believe that they have stressed the importance of securing com petent judges all thru a state series
