importance of properly lighted au tomobiles and trucks ought to bear fruit Lights may be adjusted In a few Neglect to have this done may not ony make one liable to a fine but may even worse make one responsible for death or Injury In an accident Failure to have ones lights properly focused might easily bring about the revocation of the right todrive under the new Iowa motor vehicle law Have YOU attended to this matter Your headlights may be all headlights are But perhaps one car out of ten that one meets at night blinds the approaching driver with a beam from one or both lights that is tilted up instead of being turned down on the road If you have such a light it means you are losing light you need for driving And in endangering others you are likewise endangering yourself for the blinded driver is as likely to crash into your car as into the ditch Mason Citys garages are equipped to test your lights in a hurry Your investment In the little time required may pay extremely large dividends j Let thy speech be betterthan Bllence or be j THE ELDER IS IT A PROPHECY FULFILLED around thetable at the white house In Washington at noon on July 24 were the dlplo matic representatives of some forty nations of th world called together to participate in a brief bu epochmaking ceremony that will go down in his tor j as one of the most outstanding events in the twentlet century That date marked the beginning of an Internationa policy wherein the signatory nations the high con trading parties have pledged themselves to banish war as a means of attempting the settlementof Inter national disputes Within fortyeight hours thereafter Presiden Hoover announced to the world that England an America would take the initiative steps looking to tin reduction in armament Both nations have halted shi construction programs pending further negotiations Approximately 2690 years ago an Israelitish prophet named Isaiah said and He the Lord shal judge among the nations and shall rebuke many peo pie and they shall beat their swords Into plowshares their spears into pruninghooks Nation shall no lift up sword against nation neither shall they learn war any more That prophecy has been fulfilled In this gathering which taken in connection with other prophecies re lating to our time may mark the setting up of that kingdom of righteousness on earth for which man has been praying during the past 1929 years WHERE WICKSPLANTALLS SHORT most patent shortcoming in the Wickersham proposal to let the federal government deal with wholesale disregard for the eighteenth amendmenl and leave the minor details of enforcement to the states is that a half dozen states or so have washec their hands of responsibility for prohibition enfore e Oruss Impulse IB to let the WIsconsins Maryiands New Yorka and other states of their Ilk wallow in their own mire withdraw all federal support from them in matters of law enforcement Second thot however convinces one that such procedure would be contam inating and punishing to their neighbors Iowa for ex ample would get a lot of Wisconsins mud on the sec ond splash under such an arrangement In effect the Wickersham proposal would be a re turn to states option as applied to the liquor problem It never worked in the past being merely an enlarge ment of the principle of local option Changes in our I mode of life coming of the automobile in great numbers made the more certain a failure from such a plan It isnt a letdown of en forcement thats needed To the contrary it is more rigid enforcement methods based on educational ef forts to teach Americans that violating one constitu tional law is no less a misdemeanor than violating an other LOOKING AND LIVING qm PHILIP GIBBS wise observer of life says 43 I find that most people in the world will come more than half way to meet one In civility and friendship and good will Thats rather encourag ing I have discovered that ones moments of ec static joy are when one gets a good swipe over a net with a tennis racket or when one walks thru a wood so quiet that one can hear a rabbit stir in the undergrowth or when one reads something in a book and says by gum thats true Or when just for a moment or two in life one forgets one self in some aplendid passion which has no selfish ness Speaking of Glbbs and his keen perceptions of life there is an increasing number of men and women who are observing the movements of mankind and won dering whit its all going to come to Probably the most intelligent people today hate autocracy and at the same time disbelieve in present day democracy We see that moit of our officials are concerned with having an easy job and keeping themselves at the pay window We find our best men unwilling to make the sacrifice necessary to have an active partin the gov ernment Thousands of the most Intelligent people In the land just sit on the sidelines and wonder how its all coming out METHODS HAVE CHANGED j T IFE is considerably different now from what it used to be When Galileo told the people the sun did not move around the earth but the earth moved around the sun they locked him up They thot he was crazy or worse Now if somebody says the earth is fiat or there is no such thing as evolution or makes some other wild statement we do not lock him up we just let him talk Of course there Is now and then even n these modern days an exception If a man lives in Tennes see he cant say anyi ing he least if hes 3 school teacher The legislature there decides what can be taught Fortunately altho legislatures can decide what will be taught they cannot decide what is truth Its singularly noticeable that republicans dont as s rule do their splitting on years when there is an election Girls have abandoned ruffles on their dresses be cause they look too effeminate OBSERVING t dont know what the re quirements are for the road which wants to get Itself in cluded m the states primary sys tem But if traffic Is one of the mat which lt is I should think It would be rather easy for the south road to Clear Lake to prove Itself of primary caliber In other years when this stretch has been in condition I venture the traffic has been as great as on any stretch of primary road in North Iowa save the regular Clear Lake paved road When it is back in con dition again there is sure to be a return to this traffic density I seB no good reason why under the cir the Clear Lake paving carrying the heaviest load of any stretch of road in this south road should not be lh eluded in the primary system and placed at the earliest possible mo ment rather than tryingto make gravel do It would save some lives by reducing traffic hazards on the north paving and in the long run Write your question plainly and send with Z cents in coin or

from you if such there be have been queried by S B about the required speed on r street at Clear Lake His observation based on sev eral years residence there has made him suspect there is something il legal about going less than 50 miles an hour on the stretch past the Outing club He wonders about it suggested last week that for inefficiency there is nothing quite so glaring as the locomotive whistle which in trying to get a message across to two or three persons who are In terested arouses a whole neighbor a thousand or five thousand persons As I wrote it I rather thot I would hear from a defender of the whistle And sure enough Here it is from Harold H Johnson I do not know just what you meant by the inefficiency of the lo comotive whistle I will argue with you that to some it does not mean a timely warning But until some one figures out a way to do away withall roadcrossings I am afraid that you will have to put up with Dont think for a minute that an engineer does any unnecessary whistling He la required to start whistling at the whistling post which Is about 2500 feet from the crossing and to time it so that he it intshes at the crossing I have been on trains that have hit cars at crossings and about the first thing he driver will say if he is lucky enough to be able to Is that the engineer never whistled and the chances are that the whistle was lowing right up almost to the time he car was hit So you see the pub ic expects it And us for gates and bells I could give you the dates and places vhere drivers have crashed right hru gates and been hit I am sure hat if you can figure out a more efficient warning than the whistle that you could sell your idea to ev ery railroad In the county as It costs a good many thousand dollars a year just to blow that whistle How would you like it if you approached a crossing at night heard no whistle and got almost on to the track when a train went by The first thing you would say vould be Well they never whis tled If you would go to bed with a ood clear conscience I am sure hat that pest as you call it the engine whistle will not wake you All I can say in rebuttal Is that n my discourse on the subject I ried to make it clear that I wasnt n favor of doing away with the whistle until something better could take Its place But I still think something much better will some day be devised And when that day arrives I hope the railroads will urn to it at once w dont suppose there were a dozen persons in Mason City who didnt have full particu ars by noon Thursday of a storm which wiped Mankato Minn off he map All of Mason Citys doc ors were called to the illfated city nd the local Red Cross was asked o put all of its relief machinery nto play Really it was a great tory Its almost too bad that it lad to be blasted But the fact Is hat not even a tree was blown over t Mankato The newspaper man to vhom the GlobeGazette telephoned or Information got a big laugh out f the yarn Id like to know how that lie got tarted Tt was abroad almost with unup for icemen on their rounds man who told it first tells how he started it The stories are about as much alike as a monkey and a giraffe or a cornstalk and a cab bagehead says the bulletin Theres something of the same process involved in the growth of a rumor such that relating to the Mankato storm Somebody probably noted that the storm looked black In the north Another surmised that the worst of the storm must have struck Mankato The next person to tell It had the storm hitting Man kato And so on By noon Thursday the story was a whopper have a letter from C R B further identification which the police department and the members there of are accused of violating traffic ordinances themselves etc I am In terested in the letter only in that it renrcsents a rather common atti LuCi public officials In try ing to enforce the law the police too often meet with a spirit of re sentment on the part of the indi vidual Every person seems to have the idea that the law was made for somebody other than himself An alyze your own case What have you done to make law enforcement easier in Mason City Have you at all times obeyed the law Or have you looked around to see whether a speed cop was near before step pingon it Most of the complaints Ive heard about the police depart ment or sheriffs office have eman ated from persons who found these peace officers

Theres inefficien cy in this somewhere along the line Obviously there Is a freight haul in volved that could as well be elim inated Im not arguing that only Mason City cement should be used In the

warning honk from the rear you must at once turn off from the paving on the shoulder of the highway and give the speeder more than the otherwise legal half of the road You cannot consider the question
