byproduct The Hague meet ing has been the way in which it boosted the stock of the British labor party which is now the govern ment of England All sections of British opinion are elated oyer the success of Snowdens demand So while the MacDonald government holds office without a parliamentary majority and is theoretically liable to defeat on a major issue any time Lloyd George and his liberal minority want to unhorse it the practical probabilities of its continuance in power are much extended The liberals heartily endorse the Labor partys position for one thing For another a parliamentary election while this triumph is fresh would probably give Labor a clear majority So they are much more firmly in the saddle now than they were right after the recent elections It is curious to recall that no more than ten days ago MacDonald was allowing the hint to go forth that drop Snbwden and recede from the de mands he was making at The Hague That fact suffi ciently shows how little chance there wasof the con ference really coming to failure and how accurate It Is to use the word bluff in connection with the man euvers of both sides THREE THE OBSERVING HOOVERS FIRST HALF YEAR TTERBERT HOOVER has been president of the United States for six months Even his opponents and critics admit he has demonstrated leadership His Influence on government has been perceptible Con gress has so far agreed largely with his policies Per haps more severe tests are to come later If his work during the first six months fortells of future results It is a safe prediction to declare Herbert Hoover does not intend his leadership shall lessen Two outstanding results of the Hoover leadership have been the elimination at his behest of the deben ture plan from the agricultural relief measure arid the firm stand taken by him to end revolutions in Mexico by aggressive steps including an embargo preventing the furnishing of arms and other munitions of war to revolutionists in that country and the furnishing of the sinews of war which enabled the Mexican govern ment to stamp out rebellion Other accomplishments of the Hoover administra tion that can be enumerated arc Initiation of nego tiations for another international conference for the further reductionof naval armament appointing of a commission for an inquiry into prevailing lawlessness with a request that it make a report suggesting reme dies appointing a farm board to administer farm re lief from a list of eligibleg endorsed by the faculties of agricultural colleges and the editors of agricultural papers and the disregardingL of politics in the selec tion of the appointees initiation of an oil conservation policy by stopping the issue of all permits for the ex ploration and development of public oilbearing lands and the calling of a conference of representatives of Uie oil producing states to consider methods of elim inating waste la oil production Issuance ofan order providing for public hearings on all federalincome the claim exceeds thecaillng of a conference on child welfare Mr Hoovers first move upon entering offica was the calling of the special session of congress for the enactment of farm relief and tariff measures The farm relief bill Is a law and bids fair under the di rection of the trained minds the president has brot to its administration to prove a workable and helpful measure The tariff bill is still in the making Presi dent Hoover Is watching the legislation altho giving out no public statements as yet up the tentative bill passed by the house of representatives and now pend ing before he senate with many amendments pro posed It is likely before the tariff bill becomes a law the presidents hand will be seec In its final shaping and if his accomplishments are eoual to the results in the framing of the farm relief measure a tariff bill of value to the nation seems likely The enemies the president has made have been mostly political Seemingly he has brot to the pres idents office a mental scope which views the horizon broadly and with an engineers accuracy brings the angles together for definite conclusions and results The politicians may not like President Hoover but the public is seemingly appreciative of his work The people believe in him and his desire for results for the benefit of the nation So far his policies seem to be meeting well deserved public accord ITS SENSE THAT COUNtS jTS not speed or the lack of speed that is Important In motor driving Its the use of common sense and the refusal to get excited States which have no speed laws like Iowa show good judgment Its not how fast you drive but how watchfully how carefully how courteously Sense is vastly more important than miles per hour remember once there was a movement on to construct a lakeside drive the entire distance around Clear Lake Everybody interested in the devel opment of Clear Lake as a summer resort agreed that it would be of tremendous value But something came up to halt proceedings I am told that the desire for personal gain entered into the question quite largely But however that may be there is still a heed for such a road Everybody interested in the devel opment of Clear that ought to be just about everybody for this body of water is one of North Iowas most valuable assets to get back of this project In my opinion the county board of supervisors could be interested iu the project if it could have assur ance that it was designed for the good of all Increase in the value of the lots about the lake would more than repay land owners

the items most essential in the march of pro gress am pleased to pass on this interesting communication on an interesting subject Its from W H Spence pastor of the First M Echurch Several interesting articles have ippeared in the GlobeGazette rela tive to Sunday evening union church services I have been thinking a food deal onthis subject and I be lieve the previous articles are along the right line Increasingly the members of the various churches are concentrating attendance upon the morning cervices The rank and file of the people remain away from the evening services They give as their excuse that they need Sunday evenings with their families and that they are not interested in an evening service that duplicates the morning service of worship We have a group of able men in the pulpits of thiscity and it must be discouraging tor them to face a cor porals in the audience And it is a fact that the musical organi zations of the churches major on BOBROADWAY By JOSEPH VAN RAALTE

weeks ago she started puffing up her entire body and limbs also the end of her fingers became numb and remain that way She can hardly drag herself around Her husband thinks she will be all right and she is not doctoring I am afraid she has Brights disease MRS P In a few minutes only a distant rumble and the play of the light ning far away is left of the storm while pavements and walks glisten with the welcome wetness And the air before the storm so hot and stifling is cool and Invigorating It is as if a burden has been lifted from the world by the passage of the storm And we common mortals are left wondering why we were dumbbells enough to waste our time and water that very afternoon sprinkling the lawn and garden suspect this has been one ci the mcst hectic weeks of the year iu Mason City You know how It is when school is about to open Many have been moving in from the lake and this had added to the confusion attaching to this busi ness of getting ready for school clothes shoes school supplies and the like The opening of school in thb country of compulsory education is us distinct and inevitable a season as Christmas week or springhouse cieaniug It descends upon the just jmd the unjust rich and poor learn ed and I suppose they react to it in much the same basic way allowing for the differ ences of environment and experi ence Some youngsters turill at the thot f getting

you remember There is always something attractive about tie now and the different and that is what school is after a summers layoff Somehow X rather envy the boy and girls vlio arc heading back to school Theirs is the opportunity quality and quantity of music are concerned The members of tlw church boards In the main never show up near an evening service and are likely to complain of the heavy overhead expense incident to keeping open In the evening However people would go to chiiiTlt on Sunday evenings if services of community interest were held Ths largest auditorium in thiscity coud be filled to capacity I am in favor of the denominations uniting for Sunday evening services furnishing us with great preaching and the best choral music this city can pre sent It would be a great thing for the city to get together on some plan that would keep important re ligious interests before the peopli on Sunday evenings am told that in Minneapolis since the brutal murder of Dorothy Aune the mashers have been having a difficult time or iL Men guilty of accosting women mid girls on the stretr are treated on the assumption that they are po tential slayers Tiiey are being plac ed under arrest and examined to learn whether they are harmless pests or whether they are deranged Mason City has its mnshers True It has its girls who lend encouragr ment to the brainless specimens of the other sex But mostly the activ ity is carried on without fhe neces sity for encouragement The Minneapolis Journal in an editorial headed Minneapolis No Paradise for Mashers urges wo men thus accosted to notify the po lice just as they would If they met up with a mad dog or a person ob vjpusly a maniac Perhaps this would ba a way to avert a Dorothy Aune tragedy in Mason City wonder iC there is any

yipping about the emancipation of man in the matter of clothes ask him ifit doesnt give him an added air of comfort to see the president of his bank going around looking like a rusty hinge THE staff of every New York newspaper is encum bered with one or two young key punchers who aim to qualify as funny men An oM copy reader who has sat in the slot in newspaper shops from here to the coast says that of the hundreds of news scribblers he lias encountered over 40 years only half a dozen were capable of bal ancing the subtleties that go to make up a light yarn One of Manhattans ladeda boys had a story to write the other morning about Sing Sing prison Heres his lead At Sing SingontheHudson New Yorks year round resort for nonpaying guests etc etc A prison is about as funny as the creak of a crip pled babys leg brace in a hospital ward on a Christ mas morning The chief requisite of humor is discrimination 3 Xt A SSISTANT U S Attorney Mintzer who has been rt closing up New Yorks financial speakeasies quotes one of the citys cleverest con men at saying that Its easier to sell a gold brick than a United States bond The truth of the statement is attested by the fact that there exists a national financial sucker list from which names may be bought at many places in town for the market price of five cents per name There are listed 5000000 men and women who have barkened to the siren lure of the stock swindler and been stung And there exists an even larger list of prospects from which suckers are continually being recruited It was Dapper Dan Collins now serving a term In Trenton

express heads straight into adventure Peter was so angry he stamped his foot at Uncle Praying Mantis Youre a wicked creature thats what you are eating up insects like yourself Why you admit that if you happen to fall out with one of your own family you get square with him by gobbling him up I think you ought to bo locked up Until this time Uncle Praying Mantis had been laughing his fierce ha hos Now it was his turn to grow furious It doesnt make a particle of difference to me what you think Who and what are you but a hoy And just for that I am going to turn my back upon you and leave you to yourself For where I go there my rela tives will go also Threes company you know And youre a crowd 1 It was plain to be seen that whatever Uncle Pray ing Mantis said went with the Walking Sticks Very likely they thot It was wise to keep on the right side of their cannibal uncle Mrs Walking Stick at once linked her twiglike arm Into his With a wink at Peter Mr Walking Stick followed suit and down

Theyd have a lot happier life Chirp chirp Im just as happy as I can be I like No 600 calories is not sufficient for the daily diet everybody and almost everybody likes me the cheer except for three or

little head peeped around the corner Two bright eyes met his functioning of the body cells in such a small amount of food You will reduce rapidly on such a low number but your health will be reduced also Whatever your re duction number of calories is they must be made up of the foods that contain the needed protein vitamins mineral elements and some carbohydrates starches and sugars Fat is the only food that can actually be cut down to almost nothing for the reason that while reducing your own fat is supplying sufficient But a certain amount of carbohydrates is necessary for the normal burning of the body fat The carbohydrates have been compared to kindling wood to start a fire If fats are burned without the kindling of carbohy drates they produce an acidosis which may be very I serious for besides giving uncomfortable symptoms it lowers the body resistance to disease and fatigue Some sweets can be taken as part of your carbo hydrate allowance If you want them It is wise to elimi nate the concentrated sweets however because they use up so many calories and keep up your longing for It is better to have potatoes or whole grair breads than the concentrated sweets especially the potatoes as these leave an alkaline There is no calorie value in tea and coffee But cream and sugar have decided caloric value So if you add these count cream thin four tablespoonfuls to the 100 C and the heavy cream only one and onethird tablespoonfuls to the 100 Sugar tliree full cubes or six level teaspoonfuls 100 C The number of pounds a week lost on GOO C daily would depend upon how many calories you need to supply your needs for energy and fuel If it were 2600 C you would be making your body fat supply the deficit of 2000 As one pound of fat generates 4000 C theoretically you would be losing onehalf pound a day or three and onehalf pounds a week This is too rapid a reduction to be kept up over any period We gener ally advise a loss of but one and onehalf to two pounds a week Have you had our instructions on reducing and gaming A If not see column rules for obtainin them Peter was glad to see him Hello buddy said the bpy So you overheard the conversation between Uncle Praying Mantis and my self I am afraid I was not polite to the fat old gen tleman After all his affairs were none of my busi T1OCC A Sermon for the Week GOVERNED BY INSTINCTS By The Rev Russell Henry Stafford DD Minister of the Old South Church Boston It is characteristic of the masses of men in every age to adopt views of life duty and opportunity which express animal instincts of selfassertion and selfindulgence rather than deliberate convictions and aims The instrumentalities for Indulging these In stincts vary widely from time to time but the in stincts remain the same and maintain assured con trol of vulgar thinking Thus the spirit of the times is always with a strong drag of inertia or an angry waveot ideals which would subordinate im pulse and overthrow prejudice in behalf of racial progress Until a man has accomplished a victory over his lower impulses he can exert no healthful influence over others When he has done so nothing whatever can ar rest his influence in the widening sway of Its bene ficence enduring long after he has gone and flow ing forward in continuing effectiveness long after its source has been forgotten Every one of us is moved by persuasions repre sented by habits or viewpoints acquired long since from the social group of which we are a part ema nating from people long dead and of most of whom we have never heard When these persuasions are elevating we may be sure that they originated in men and women who had overcome the world in their own souls in order to be servants of the right WITH NORTH IOWA EDITORS ing vigor in the folds of its tower ing clouds but considered just as a spectacle it is not less than ma jestic Par off on the horizon there gath ers a blue haze that thickens and deepens as the twilight gathers The Ihreatening cloud climbs slowly up the horizon and the dusk shuts down suddenly while a preter natural hush broods over the breath less earth Every leaf hangs motion less the countryside waits in ex pectation As the sky darkens warning flashes of lightning begin to play along the horizon at first mere reflections against the sky but gradually increasing in strength and frequency As the storm nears one can see by the flashes a definite line of di vision between the black cloud overhead and the lighter texture of descending rainl So the battlefront of the storm moves majestically across the world its progress lighted by the now almost unceas ing flicker of the Jighlning each flash showing the front of the ap proaching curtain of rain a little nearer Still the ominous calm Vionlinues altbo the rolling thunder of the storms barrage is now clear and sharp Suddenly there is a puff then another and another and the great wind that runs ahead of the storm swoops down clanorousiy The eiramn is nearing Its climax The IGNORING THE VETERAN Cresco Gas Mask The appoint ment of L P Barth of Cresco as su pervisor of the census gives the lie to the promises that have been made to the Legion for the past months It shows that the powers that be who make these appointments do not care what the veterans think They take care of their own and the vet erans can go hang Let us say right now we have no grudge against Mr Barth personal ly No doubt the appointment was unsolicited and Mr Barth did as any one else in his position might He no doubt felt that he had earned the appointment thru his efforts for the republican party and no doubt he never stopped to think that the job rightfully belonged to a veteran He is one of the finest type of politi cians we know Very high minded and always lining up on the side of community betterment We do not blame Mr Barth for thia appointment We put the blame higher up Perhaps the Congress man from the Fourth district of Iowa could explain how it happened if he would However we musi not miss the point which Is just thia Politicians who are running our government are ignoring the veteran fields thunder But what of that Theyll be bruised in their turn right enough and some will stand and fight and win and some will be beaten But in the meantime it is a fine thing to be young and going back to school And even the sourest cynic wisest in the cheats and dislllusion ments of life would trade all his experience and bitter knowledge of the fruit of the tree to stand again on the threshold books in would he not hope the publicspirited per sons at Rudd Eagle Grove and other points where the names of the town have been placed on a roof for the benefit of aviat ors get their reward on this earth If they dont it surely will be chalked up on the permanent rec ords as a deed well done and wor thy of an extra star in the crown The act is thoroly appreciated I can assure the persons responsible And I hope that every town that even pretends to be up and coming will follow suit am immensely pleased with the start North Iowas free fair has made While its suc cess cannot be said to be un bounded there is every indication that progress has been made With minor changes In the shaping the program and other things connected with the fair based on the exper ience of this years fair next years exposition should be better ind
