when man wont have to build his own character but can depend on chemistry to do it And if the chemists can discover what makes us stop growing future gen erations may become a race of giants Of course that would not be advisable as we would have to junk all our present furniture and other equipment As to growing character by the chemistry and gland meth od that would take all the spiritual struggle out of ife and leave us very much like the wellknown worm Entered at the Postofflce at Mason City Iowa as Second Class Matter Many receive advice only the wise profit by It 1 ITS FUNCTION IS JUDICIAL TN THE selection of a commission to Investigate the field of law enforcement with special attention to the eighteenth amendment President Hoover has re deemed another one of his campaign pledges That he has selected an able and fearless group of men is not to lie doubted regardless of what its conclusions may be The scope of the investigation has not been def initely announced Particularly vague in the public mind Is the status of the commissions assignment with respect to the dry law Is the emphasis to be on the mere devising of improved methods for enforcing the law as It now stands on the statute books or is the commission to have power to bring in a recommen dation for modifying that law Thats a major ques tion Past utterances of the individual members of the commission are being ferreted out with a view to de termining a disposition toward humidity or aridity The chairman for instance is found to have expressed doubt concerning the wisdom of the Jones law hold ing that It stressed severity in punishment rather than certainty This is regarded with comfort by the wets Iowas representative on the commisssion Judge W S Kenyon has been set down as a dry But If the commission functions aa a purely fact finding and judicial duty Imposed upon it by the predispositions should not prove adverse to its hopes for success The thing thats all Important is that the appointees are all persons of in tegrity and ability who will not yield to the pressure sure to be brot upon them by the extremists on either Bide If the plan is carried out on the high level designed for 11 by Mr Hoover the GlobeGazette will be dis ed to place a great deal of weight on the com islona WAS A COSTLY LESSON explosion and fire In a Cleveland hospital which resulted In 126 deaths leaves the country aghast Contemplation of the horror of It tends to exclude phil osQihical ruminations For the moment we stared at it helplessly But since the thing is passed and cant be helped the lesson Involved is the most important aspect of the incident America and particularly American hos pital authorities are resolved that it shall never happen again Science in bringing help and healing also brings new hazards and the Cleveland disaster represents one of them Probably any danger attached to films In xray aepartments had been overlooked excepting for general precautions in most hospitals That a deadly gas was generated by burning film probably was known to science but that it represented a danger that might wipe out the inmates of a hospital doubt less had never been thot of The arrangement of the Cleveland building lent it self to the development of a disaster It was built like a crrt chambers Consulting rooms on the various floors surrounding an open central space from the ground floor to the top constituted a sort of well Two open stairways led to the basement where the films were kept When the explosion occurred the gas and flames quickly generating rose almost instantly to permeate every part of the building Xray films are an absolute essential of medical and hospital practice Perfect safeguards are possible and will come The lesson has been costly frightful but It is safe to say that the Cleveland horror never will be repeated All questions to this department should be ac companied by tho writers name and address and 2 cents in coin or stamps

carried on in Europe in the middle centuries or in America in the early his tory of the country but there is ample proof that the Jews from earliest times placed witchcraft under the ban of the law

first president GENERAL FENG OPPORTUNIST j JNCONFIRMED dispatches report that General Feng well known as the Christian general has broken with the Nanking government in China that a renewal of hostilities Is about to start on a large scale This is bad news indeed for the Nanking government which has only within a year completed its conquest of northern China and Manchuria and begun to work for consolidation and stability Feng is one of the keenest and shrewdest of the Chinese tu chuns or local military governors and he has been a thorn in the side of every Chinese government that has been in the way to assert its authority over the entire country Feng joined with Chiang KaiShek to oust Chang TsoLIn Manchurian dictator who died In his retreat from Peking after the final triumph of the National ist forces Without doubt Feng played a considerable part in that success as his is acknowledged to be the best trained and disciplined army in China However both before that time and since Feng has been flirting with the Russians and It is evident that his latest split with Chiang follows the war upon the commun ists in the Nationalist ranks Feng was once heralded aa an Idealist who would regenerate China but his conduct In the last few years has indicated rather that he is of the typical Chinese military type a selfish opportunist who Joves to trouble the waters for his own

work greater than the equivalent of the energy whether of heat of chemical combination of electricity or mechanical nergy that is put into it Such a result would be the creation of an additional store

P STEWART A SHINGTON May 22 After the overwhelming fashion In which President Hoover was awept Into office on the G O P ticket Apparently so d e v a s t a ting a Hoover victory that certain alarmed public men said it paved the way for a dic tatorship if Mr Hoover chose to make an Ameri can Mussolini of himself which of course nobody actually expect How in the dickens does it hap pen that the United States with a clear G O P majority of 15 which everyone had supposed was equivalent to a Hoover turned down Mr Hoovers strongly expressed wishes concerning the farm very first time that selfsame senate took a vote only just 65 days after his inauguration THE explanation says Senator Tom Connally of Texas un questionably ig that huge numbers of ballots cast last November for Mr Hoover were not in reality pro Hoover votes but Simply antiSmith votes Senator Connally doubtless knows what he is talking about His state was one of those which cast its electoral vote for Mr Hoover tho it sent him Connally to the senate as a democrat MOW that Mr Hoover is presl A dent continued the Lone Star senator very little that anti Smith sentiment which he got the benefit of on election day is back of him Ho is nothing like as strong as he seemed to be in ing like as strong as he probably thot he was Many conflicting elements com bined for the time being on Hoover because they were alike in fearing Smith The Smith danger being over they are falling away from Hoover and resuming hostilities among themselves is but I am sure with no misfortune befalling us that the rising sun will find us in the southern swamps it was about 20 years j Southern swamps repeated tho boy Goodness I think i the fad of drinking hot water was at Its height I remember I went thru It for my ailment The only result I got was a chronic intestinal irritation for several months which I thot I would never get rid of The benefits to those who arc helped by drinking hot water come from the heat for heat is one of natures healing agencies The bodv That doesnt sound very good to me Swamps are hor rid damp foggy places arent they with lota of mos quitoes and files and snakes about to bother one I THE members of the house oi A representatives went on the Texan appeared altogether too tie more independent It can afford to be Senators only have to go to the polls once in six years not every other year like the representatives which naturally makes the latter timid Accordingly the senate voted about as its members saw fit The result immediately revealed how much weaker the president was than moat folk had Imagined In stead of having a majority of 15 In his favor he had a majority of 3 against him This will teach the house of rep resentatives a lesson Henceforward the president will not be so strong there either are other signs observed i the senator of a breakdown in the present white house tenants influence When President de nounced the equalization as an important feature of the agricultural relief proposals the national reac tion was strong widespread and fav orable to Mr Coolidge I sense Httle if any popular reaction to President Hoovers denunciation of the deben ture plan It seems to pass almost unnoticed Why I dont know A differ ence in presidential personalities perhaps President Hoover also could very properly have objected to the deben ture plan while being urged to ex press his farm views Evidently un willing to accept any responsibility he refused them him self I suppose in danger of being lost in the expressed his objections in a style to anger the debentures supporters THE truth is commented the southwesterner President Hoo er is in the difficult position of aving tremendous promises to live p necessarily promises made by himself but assumed by thera This makes it hard for him to scape disappointing the country Glowing promises made In advance re perilous Besides the White House Is a ilnce for an exceedingly able politi n thinskinned one cither After a

Gander decidedly There decided vi are swamps and swamps Some are good and some are bad but we choose the good ones To be sure these feedinggrounds of ours are wet wouldnt ba swamps if they were not and we wouldnt like them cither but they are not very damp The sun shines too brightly for that and only in the mornings are the swamps misted in fog The bright rays chase the gloom away how lovely arc the ones that grow by the banks of much united on farm legislation to be natural In fact they were split Into of groups each with ver of its op posed to one anothers and all op posed to the
