the Postoffice atMason City Iowa aa Second Class Matter i A friend is as it were a second self v DEBENTURE PLAN DEFINED TTiNTIRELY independent of its chances of becoming a part of the legislative relief program for agri incidentally we believe it has the export debenture plan is an interesting proposal in economics In effect it draws off from the tariff revenue of the government an amount equal to half the tariff on the exported surplus of certain agricultural prod ucts The exporter of suchproducts receives a de benture or credit memorandum for half of the im port duty fixed on his product which is salable to an importer having duty to pay and will be accepted by the government in payment 8V duty So the ex porter gcts the equivalent of cash which is paid by the government in deductions from tariff receipts That is the machinery How it would affect the wellbeing of the farmer and how it would affect the balance of trade conditions in the country probably are matters that probably could not be determined without trial Our suspicion is that Americans are not destined to know for some time at least If thefarmer were himself the exporter it might ct t considerable aid to him But by the time the of tho export debenture was spread over the three or four hands thru which farm products pass jljcfpre it actually gets to the farmer it is reasonable toi the thereVwould be Boroia material deductions wheat for example would be Increased In price the full itmtiunt of the export debenture allowance on each bushel In point of fact the debenture plan Is an cx pcVt subsidy no matter how it be called The important matter right now Is to make a start tcfvard legislative relief President Hoover has let It y known that he is dead set against the debenture plau To include it in a bill is to hazard the entire pro gram T J B Robinson of the third district has summed up the as well as anybody up to this time in his address before the house in behalf of the presidents measure The present bill does not go as farin its con trol of the marketing of farm surpluses as I would desire but it is a good start It may not prove to be all we need but it is something on which to build For some years we have been de manding more and getting less I accept and support it aa the best that we can now obtain in the hope and belief that in the future congress will supply anything that may be found to be lacking in the present bill and that the future of agriculture and the Independent in dividual farmer will be assured Conceivably at a later time tho debenture pro vision may wisely be added to the agricultural relief program It plainly is an export subsidy seeking tu give to farming benefits such as have come to indus try thru a tariff on imports But for the present the important thing as the Hampton representative has put it is to make a start AMBITION COMES FIRST p MATTER how many desirable qualities your boy T seems to lack you need not be sadly concerned un less he lacks ambition If he does not seem to have the ambition to be somebody and to get somewhere something ought to be done about anything can be done On the island of St Croix in the Virgin Isles the great

good a clerk that at 13 when his master went away for a visit young Hamilton was left in chargeof the business When he was 12 he wrote to a friend that ambition is prevalent and that he would risk his

ITEM of the economic advantage of this country which is so much assumed with most of us that we dont even recognize it is pointed out prominently In the report released this day by the committee on recent economic changes which Includes such au thorities as President Hoover William Green John J Raskob Max Mason and Owen D Young Reference Is made to the point brot out in this paragraph It is obvious of course that the economic position of this nation is In no slight degree due to our possession of abundant raw materials and of power to the fact that our domestic market Is so large and that there are n trade barriers between the states of our union We can goods without stopping them for in spection or the payment of duties between states We can effect their transfer without the barriers of differing languages or customs Advertising is peculiarly effective because we have so great an area with a common language which enables us to talk to all the people and to develop national consumption habits which in turn make possible largescale production This fortuitous situation should be borne In mind as an important factor in both the speed and the spread which have char acterized ourrecent economic development How easily might this country we call the United States have been cut up into racial groups each with its restrictive barriers And how vastly different might the development of this land been if such had been the case Have you given consideration to this fact STOP THE IMMIGRATION TN THE knowledge that the population of this coun try is Increasing now at the rate of 1 every 20 sec onds 3 a minute 380 an hour 1500000 a year can one fail to see the wisdom of suspending all immigra tion or at least confining immigration to close fam ily relatives of

Mine EW YORK May probably is very nice and all that but it Is something else again to be placec on a pedestal before a large group and then toppled over by a slip of a chorus girl Take the incident of last night when a very well known writer entered a soandso place and anklec up to the bar Golly exclaimed the admirer thats Heywood Broun the great essayist He is one of the few columnists who prints what he likes and he is considered one of the great est moulders of public opinion You dont say chirped a lass who was gooey with fun goo I certainly do say breathlessly added the heroworshipper and

answeryour lette personally I am disregarding you request Mrs T first because I want to disabuse others of the no tion that there is any age limit to reducing or that there is a glandu lar cause of obesity and second I realize that you would like to have an answer and there is no valid reason why it shouldnt be pub lished as I nevez1 use the names of correspondents The best way I can answer you LULU HUNT is to run the following letter which PETERS M D came in the same mail with yours Dear Dr Lulu I want to thank you for your book Diet and Health I am past 60 and nursed an invalid husband for

she is over 60 And we have had thousands of letters from both men and women over 40 who have reduced some even over and profitably too According to the rule of 110 pounds for 5 feet in height m stocking feet and pounds for each inch over that you are around 40 to 45 pounds overweight instead of 25 Better get after it No the disturbance of the thyroid gland or any other gland does not cause obesity Solely overeating for the needs does that little job However obesity will cause a disturbance of the glands no doubt about that T WANT to thank you Mrs N for your letter It makes me happy to think that the little book pub lished 11 years ago is still carrying on I think you could with profit very gradually get down to around 130 which Is nearer normal welcht for your height The condensed

popularly supposed so any way There are congressional wives vhose support is sought even more energetically than their husbands vhen the latters help Is needed to decide important closelybalanced iroblems of state NOW ir happens that Mrs Long worth is very deeply politics To be sure she never says so out oud Under no circumstances does he ever give out an interview for publication or make a speech or otherwise identify herself with any political for that matter any controversy at all Nevertheless it is common talk she whispers in mighty potent tones n a considerable number of highly august political ears Invitations to her salons are lovcted by the greatest in the land In short she is a1 recognized power uj Q j UJIIJJJTr LJIU eiL using spoken to by a perfect stranger and a

manager and It has since vvj IL nuo Limn Una luuuine i tackled some very difficult problems years to reimburse In a very interesting manner Larry for that was the friendly older Loons j Albert Lea also has some very difficult problems Other cities have them too From Albert Lea comes the an nouncement that Albert Lea ofiS clals are to enforce the doglicenne ordinance The announcement is very emphatic It admits that previ ous attempts to enforce this ordi i nance have been rather feeble Yet rightofway for primary roads since 1919 Fifteen million annual income for the fifteen years these county bonds will run will produce if all the counties in the state approved bonds in aggre gate amounts sufficient to complete the paving of the primary road sys tem In the state the sum would bo less than onehalf of the Income for the next fifteen years youngster I know that as many times as I have dropped from sky to earth I never fall to get a funny reeling right in the pit of my stomach when I am tak ng a nose spin toward earth and I suppose that I stir up as much spray as you do As for you stranger I can sec at a glance that have no wings nothing but those queer things hal move only up and down wbat good they can cant imagine But since I really do not know any ihing about them I am not going to make any unkind remark The young Loon glared at poor Peter whom he didnt like at first sight That was evident Only I will say thathaving no wings you couldnt posibly gct to the clouds and you did you couldnt fly down so you can have no idea what it feels like And far from kicking up any spray I dare saj hat if you managed to rise even two feet from the water you would fall back into it and sink like a stone MAY 15 1009 At a meeting of the Memorial day committee lost evening at the home of J H Stevens plans were laid out for this years observance The local posts and corps will observe Monday May 31 as the day for the ceremony at the graves of the old soldiers here A program similar to the one given last year will be arranged this year The committee is composed of J H Stevens C M Adama F M Gregory Mrs J H Stevens Mrs Henry Keer and Mrs Becker Mr and Mrs W E Sunclell plan to leave the city or the summer and perhaps the winter which will be spent on the Pacific coast They plan however to re turn to the city at some time to make it their home Fourteen cars of piling have been stored here by the Milwaukee which in the course of the next few weeks will be shlpped out along the line for use Six cars have already been shipped The high school athletes left ycslertiay for

license or it will a guest at the pound for three days and then oblivion This is the edict and there are no ifs and ands With what great confidence that utterance is made Enforce a cing license law It seems so simple There can be little argument against its simplicity A little show of effi ciency and the deed is done But then there is always some hitch We have heard of towns that claimed fame for being entirely out of debt we have heard towns that claimed fame for having had no prisoners in their jails for a year we have heard of towns who got fame because their mayors got less than a dollar a year aspay But has any town dared to make a claim that every dog in that town is licensed We doubt it Why should a dog license be hard to enforce In the spring time there is a wave of protest against dogs from gardeners and home owners Listen to that protest and you would think that a move towards licensing dogs would have enough support to carry it thru Yet when a dogcatcher goes forth dogown ers can make a protest too They not only protest in Austin They protest in other towns It seems to be a universal trait of dogowners to make an active protest against because despite the simplicity of loglicensing there ap pear to be so many towns that have so many more dogs than they have licenses cd for secondary roads This leaves 17000000 There arc deductions from this income for about three

would bo only about more miles and Chlckasaw county may well consider getting the pnv ing done on all her primary high ways The early bird will catch the worms and dont you forget it With the auto

says Surely such a penalty in Austin jail for ten months ought to cause anyone to mend his That is to be expected that is what the Jail in Austin is intended for We can really understand the TrK bunes attitude Of course such a sentence would seem severe In At ucru wnere CTr PUt TribuncPrisoners lo do with economies And if the Albert Lea city manager can get every dopr in Albert Lea licensed without causing a riot in the city it will behoove every town and city to give more consideration to the city manager plan here Lea where according to the in the on such in in person It seems that in Albert
