relief will come to farmers only thru their own efforts must be stated and accepted with reservations by persons sin cerely Interested in helping agriculture That effective organization of manysided agriculture Is essentially a different and greater problem than organizing citrus growers or vegetable producersis patent on the sur face To deny that such Is the case is to reveal an alarming lack of understanding of the subject This was one of the points brot out by President Hoover In his inaugural address and in many public utterances before and since that time The very make up of the farm board with representatives from the various major branches of farming Is founded on the assumption that agriculture is not a single Industry but a large number of Industries And yet in spite of the inherent difficulties In volved there must be a movement toward organization If there is to be artlfically stimulated farm relief Sec retary Arthur M Hyde pointed to this fact in a re cent statement containing the following The American farmer on the production side of his businesshas kept pace fully with the pro gress ofindustrybut in organization agriculture has been laggard The general answer to farm problems output and to eliminate the waste and duplication of a mar keting and distribution system which generally speaking two dollars for every one dollar I it returns to the farmer Then with regard to another phase of the ques tion the secretary the increase in the farmers efficiency production there has arisen the problem of the agricultural surplus around which the battle of farm relief has revolved The socalled equalization fee and the option export debenture plan proposed as remedial legislation both have the fatal weak aessof stimulating proTiction American agricul lure cannot to t Its future to any thinj no flimsy andunati relief as been advanced which Is in any way comparable with farmrelief legis lation enacted by the extra session of congress I should also advocate a revision of the tariff rates on agricultural commodities as means of protecting the home markets as well as the de velopment of inland waterways and scientific re search as a means ofdeveloping new uses for gen eral farm products and profitable uses of waste products Further development of reclamation projects either by irrigation or drainage1 should await the time when such action is economically necessary It is profitless to new areas to open them to agri cultural development and production when their products coming to the market find themarkets already supplied The vast acreage of submarginal lands is really needed for reforestation That strikes the GIobeGaeette asbeing a rather broadgauge vision of the farm problem and the farm future ARE NUMEROUS TT LOOKS as If the field for the governorship in Iowa next year was going to be extensive Whereas the uenatorsbip race may be a triangular affair between Hammill Dickinson and Clark it looks as if there might be as many as 6 or 8 in the contest to succeed the Britt governor Ed M Smith present secretary of state Arch Mc Farlane of Waterloo Senator Bergman of Newton Dave Stewart of Sioux City Dan Turner of Corning Ernie Moore of Cedar Rapids Senator Shaft of Clin ton Attorney General John Fletcherand Senator Wil son of Des Moines are a few of the persons mentioned for gubernatorial laurels Mason City might even have a representative ha the freeforall Who knows Stranger things have hap pened f Some of these undoubtedly have been waked too soon by the political alarm and will fall Into a deep slumber long before the primaries roll around And yet enough aspirants ought to be left in the running to make it an interesting chase the moat interesting perhaps since 1920 or 1924 AN ELASTIC WORD AN IOWA editor flays the democratic party of the south because It is no more liberal than the re publican party of the north Just what is meant by such an arraignment Isnt made clear What does this editor mean by liberal Does he mean radical Too many do when they use the term There probably is no more elastic term than liberal Thats what the Soviets of Russia call themselves Thats what Senator Johnson of California calls himself And theres a vast chasm between them Even Senator Johnsons enemies will admit that And no doubt the bolsheviks would Insist on it About time it Is for a definition of this magic word liberal WEATHER AND LAWS say the new farm board is getting away to a nice easy start One reason Is that there has been little rolh in the west and there it leag danger of an overproduction of crops Also MM been drought in the Argentine Laws may sound im portant but weather Is vastly more so Weather and farmers habits will have more to do with changing the agricultural situation in the United States than all the laws coneress can make In a whole session THE READING TASTE OOK sellers willtell you the reading taste of the public has changed greatly in the past few years It wlll change again It moves from one thing to an other in waves A few years ago the average book store piled high the tables with fiction Even bad fic tion was more salable than nonfiction Now the same tables are piled high with popularized science easy history nontechnical psy chology While the public taste Is not to a great ex tent for deep stuff It is no longer for unimportant fiction in the degree that it was It can at least be said that we are browsing around the borders of thinking THE EXAMPLE OF CANYONS ET a city in the bottom of the Grand Canyon of the 1 Colorado river and it might easily be overlooked The great chasm makes all elseseem little We ought all of us to be somewhat like the Grand Canyon Our little fears troubles anxieties ought tobe lost over looked In the midst of larger thots larger plans larger achievements DEFININGCURSES TI7HAT are curses Many things are carelessly called curses There are only a few manifestations of life that deserve such a severe

kind and we are selves Rather sheepishly they looked at each other at a loss as to what to do for It We have tried so and plighted their friendship Having acted as peace many things but in vain The little blotches itch very maker between the two Dawdler was ready for action badly especially at night My husband has had this j Clapping his high hat on the back of his head at its for about three weeks and I have usual Jaunty angle Dawdler Dude in spite of himself just caught it What is this and tcok a at Ms reflection in the little mirror he carried on his person and bringing his treasured cane out from its mysterious hiding place somewhere about what shall we do for it It is possible that you have the Itch H From your description it sounds like it The Itch or Scabies Is due to a little insect so small that you can barely see it with the naked eye It is called the acarus scabicf and it is the female of the species that causes itching by burrowing under the skin in order to lay her eggs When these hatch the young females wiggle out and begin new itchy homes for them selves The young moles may as they stroll but they dont him Dawdler swung it airily then with it lightly tapped Peter on the back Well comrade he buzzed right merrily are you ready and willing to set out to see the sights even if I the first sight does happen to be a battle royal If so Lack of Coin Likely to Cramp RussoChina War Neither Country Has Necessary Funds to Put on a First Class Modern Fight Says Stewart By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON July 23 Some thing much more effective than the league of nations or the Kellogg treaty serves as a war deterrent be tween Russia anj coun try has the money to put up a mod fight The lack of the latest might them Both being defi cient In that res pect they

millions already literally He also has had useful support Ru8laon from the warm of czarlst Russian He died before soviet rule n Russia had taken its definite shape of to day but his attitude toward it un questionably would have been sym pathetic which President Chianei distinctly is not Dr Sun had his headquarters for some time in the early period of the revolution at Shanghai where I talked with him a number of times and there is no doubt whatever that he favored proletarianlsm for his maybe on the exist ing Russian model but similar to It in principle PRESIDENT Chiang clearly has 1 given the Chinese republican movement a wholly different slant from Dr bourgeois slant as the doctor probably would have described it Dr Sun was an altruist Presiient Chiang tiecms to be a practical man if ation Besides CVang lived a jroat deal anting the at Chinas treaty ports the hnrdest headed most conservative set of short rations obviously both sides would have to buy toad and neither side has the means to buy it on a scale to keep any formidable force in the field IT is true they might start a con flict and develop issues calculated to drag in other nations which might reasonably be expected to get to fighting among themselves This is the possibility which makes foreign observers of the strain In Manchurian relations so anxious Still more unfortunately an ad justment of the RussoChlnese dif ference of opinion concerning the management of the Chinese Eastern railroad is not likely to hold water very long Tho rivalry between Moscow and Nanking lies deeper than that THE soviet leaders evidently con sider the communization of China vitally important to Bolshe vism Just as evidently the repub lican leaders at Nanking are deter mined to prevent their country from being communlzed Their territories adjoin separated only by an imaginary line so that a constant slopping over of propa ganda from the Siberian to the I LI 1C kJiUGklCHi LVJ Chinese side of the border practically is a certainty with or without Mos cows active encouragement The conflict In the two political philosophies did not originate ia mere squabble over the control of DR LULU HUNT PETERS blte The standard remedy for stop ping their activities Is sulphur ointment Hot baths must be taken and the skin scrubbed very thoroly with soap and water and scrub brush and dried very thoro ly Then each inflamed be rubbed vigorously with the sulphur ointment Then the rest of the skin should be smeared with it Repeat these baths and ointment rubs for three days wear ing the same underclothing and using the same bed and night clothing At the end of three days the little pests should be killed off The clothing and bedding must be disinfected washable things by boiling and woolen things by baking or ironing with a very hot iron Every member of the family who is affected must be treated at the same time Hope this heps you H Better see a skin specialist to be sure it Is scabies WHAT to do DrPeters when youve had about BOO or 1000 calories for breakfast and lunch and dinner turns out to be an unexpectedly wonderful meal or theres a dinner date you didnt figure on P You can go to a dinner and get away with a very tew calories if you want to Miss P If clear soup follow me And Whizz if you feel strong enough keep close behind us At a brisk walk off started Dawdler and Peter with Whizz at his heels had to hurry to keep up with the lively fellow The three had not gone very far before they heartl a noise that to Peter at least sounded as tho a great many sewing machines were running at full speed Puzzled Peter was about to ask what it was when Dawdler exclaimed Theres going to be plenty of work for me to do in a short while It may be a lucky thing after all that you were wounded Whizz old chap Binding up your wing gave me a bit of practice in the art of doctoring and I am now all ready with my splints and bandages to do first aid duty Those are the workers buzzing boy hear them They never buzz so long and loud unless they are very much excited and they never grow excited unless there is a battle on or the prospect of a fight between Queen Bees When theyre in the mood they are in now somebody always gets hurt They lose their heads anil push each other even squash each other In the crush Say Dawdler do you think Colonel Buzza will be able to hold the outer gates asked Whizz ner vously I am very much afraid he will not answered Dawdler sadly In fact unless my ears deceive me the invaders already have broken thru his lines of defense and arc at our very doors Now that a battle is raging I wish I were not a man Then I could arm and fight for the honor of my home and country Peter stopped stock still at Dawdlers remark Thats the queerest thing I have ever heard ex claimed the boy What do you mean Dawdler In my country tis the men who fight I have been won r railroad and It will not end it and when the railroad dispute Is settled PHINA surely is not as free from communistic sentiment as the ittitude of President Chiang Kai sheks administration perhaps sug ests Dr Sun Yat Sen not Chiang Kai shek was the father of the present Chinese republic and Dr Sun if not an outandout communist at least tended decidedly in that direction without fat ia served take ft all but dont take any Bering why you didnt march off to the fray with thi crackers or bread with it If it is a cream

have it all but if It is a rich dessert either omit it or take but a few tastes The latter is the hardest to do The best thing for those who are exposed to unex pected dinners is to have very few calories for lunch and breakfast every day and have the chief meal in the evening We have a pamphlet containing instructions on how to gain or lose weight which may be had by fol lowing column rules there is ptosis dropping of the iTi stomach and intestines and it gives symptoms a supporting belt is usually of great relief Usually those who suffer from this condition are very much under weight

by the owners In visw of the opening of the new season under the man agement of Arthur and Heffner A new celling will be placed In the dressing rooms new carpets will be laid thruout the building and the railing about the orches tra pit lowered The management expects to open the opera house with a play on Aug 6 The railing about the orchestra pit Is considered too high as It prevents the best effect of the music With such a burnishing up of the building Mason City player goers the coming season are anticipating a delightful series of diver sions Messrs Arthur and Heffner promiso a good year of fine attractions There were big doings at the wrestling game at the Whlttaker Dock pavilion In Clear Lake Friday night Three hundred lovers of athletics witnessed three mat contests and one stirring six round boxing exhibit with varying degrees of pleasure and excitement The stellar attraction was the wrestling contest between Walter Anderson of this city and Leroy Billings for merly of

exiles in northern China The bulk of these exiles are financially hard up but they make useful soldiers who want nothing so much as to fight the Soviets Chiang has a good many regiments of them on the

It doubtless has paid them to culti vate Chiang All told these Influences possibly nave weighed with the new presl lent and modified his extreme views If he ever had them VTEVERTHELBSS Dr Suns idea must have left a deep Impres sion in Chinaespecially among the intelligentsia which he had a largo part in creating These folk have scattered his doc trines far and wide It also stands to reason that

has country which it behooves him to guard stringently against subverslva teachings or he is apt to have re bellion on hia hands any day Chioag knows hii dan ger perfectly and thc ultraconservative foreigners tha treaty ports and especially the Rus sian exiles who want nothing less than the spread of sovietism to the land of their refuge Tho Bolshevlkl on the Russian slda of the frontier surely know tha same thing Thus soviet aggression In China Is a constant temptation The threat of it equally Is a con stant sourae of anxiety to President Chiang and all tho strongest Influ ences which surround him OTHER EDITORS NOT THE HAUGEN BILL Elmn New Era G N Haugen en route by auto to his home in North wood stopped over in Creaco last night Mr Haugen naturally Is well pleased with the enactment of the agricultural marketing bill and Is confident that President Hoover is determined to make it effective for the rehabilitation of tho farming in dustry and if the farmer organiza tions cooperate with the federal farm board as they should good results are certain to be accom County Times The agricultural marketing bill is not the Haugen bill and bears lit tle resemblance to it It Is the old Jardine bill that Haugen and his newspaper satellites in the fourth district refused to take prom Presi dent Coolidge They criticised Frank Howard In 1923 ror challenging Haugen to debate farm relief Brother Earth had a lump In his throat because we referred to the Haugen bill as a panacea Brother Beall o West Union accused us of flying In the face of the organized farm leaders of the country and the argument generally was that Mr Haugen must be reelected so he might get HIS bill thru con gress next session Then along came Hoover and the Kansas City convention and rode rough shod over Haugen and his bill and his satellites When the Hoover steam roller had passed the Haugen bill was flat ter than the proverbial pancake but Haugen and his satellites smiled as cheerfully as their flattened out faces could smile smacked their lips licked their chops In antici pation of patronage and professea to like the way they were crushed Now the JardincrCoolidgeHoovei plan is a law and says the Times Mr Haugen Is naturally well pleased The president is now making ap pointments for the newly created board W F Schilling of North field Minn has Just been appointed as representative for the dairy in dustry Does he believe in the prin ciples of the Haugen bill Mr Schilling spoke at a Farm Bu reau picnic in Saratoga in the fall of 1926 We went out to hear him He Is a good man who known the prob lems of the dairy farmer and he knows hnw to express himself free ly and fluently But he made no re ference to the Haupren bill After his speech we were Introduced to him as Mr Haujrens onponent in the tourth district We remarked that tie had not alluded to the Haugen bill and what do you suppose he aald Here are his exact words No I do not believe in the Hau gen bill The Farm Bureau hasnt money enough to hire me to get up on a platform and advocate such a bill And that man now Is a member of the board that Is to administer the new bill and Mr Haugen nat urally is well pleased
