PULITZER PRIZE FOR AMERICAS BEST EDITORIAL OF THE YEAR The NewsTelegraph suggests the above caption as a fit enterprises with assurance of success This is a false hope ting one for all believers in Iowa to adopt at this time It sug gests it especially to those who seem to have lost the old tirne American initiative and the oldtime American courage to go ahead We would not be misunderstood We are not suggesting that there is anything to be gained in viewing things through Pollyanha eyes insisting that conditions are the best when they are not We are only suggesting that perhaps it is good psychology for us to try to be happy in Iowa and to look for the many blessings we have rather than seeking always to point out our troubles There is a lot in psychology The healthiest man in town can walk down the street on a fine morning feeling as fit as a fiddle and if a dozen of his friends one after another meet him and tell him he is looking bad he will go home ac tually ill Conversely if a man is not feeling up to himself and is not in the best of health if the same number of his friends one after another remark how well he is looking he will immediately feel better This is a homely comparison and is in no sense new for it has been said many times before but it is none the less true It is unfortunate that calamity always makes bigger news than the wellordered condition of things Conditions out of the ordinary especially those which threaten orderly processes always attract more comment than those conditions which inure to wellbeing and the usual course of human life lowans always have had an inferiority complex The won derful things which characterize our state have become so common to us and so much a part of our everyday lives that many times we fail to appreciate their importance For ex ample out in California where they believe in ballyhoo if they raised anything like the Iowa hog they would have pic tures of the animal on postcards and send out literally mil lions of them to the entire country Not only do we have an inferiority complex in Iowa but in common with the rest of the country during the stressful period through which we have been passing we have developed the habit of waiting for the government to so shape events that we can oroceed with our v and an unsound philosophy No necromancy of legislation no hocuspocus of governmental fiat or edict will so arrange things as to insure what we call recovery In the last analysis recovery is going to come in the good old American way through the enterprise of the individual citizen his energy his industry and his refusal to quit There is a growing per centage of our citizens believing that somewhere along the line this initiative and grit of Americans will have to assert itself and we will have to determine the way to move things is to get out and move them There is no use being foolish about it or unwarrantedly optimistic We cannot make bad conditions better by simply waving a magic wand buf we con make conditions better by concerted effort It is not necessary to go outside the facts to find reasons for our being happy here in Iowa We have gone through some troublous times We are not yet out of the woods but we are so much better off than is the condition of many sec tions of the country that there is no comparison Farm prices are good Although many farmers do not have much to sell the fact remains prices are good and should remain so The spirit of the people is better and business generally is much better than it was last year We have here in Iowa over tillable acres of land the most fertile land in the world We have square miles of the best territory in the world urban and rural We have an industrial develop ment which has shown a steady growth We have the least percentage of illiteracy among our people in the entire coun try We have a fine tradition a splendid background We hove an upstanding courageous intelligent citizenry The pioneers blazed the trail for the empire we have today and wrought the miracle of its transformation from the wilder ness within the lives of men who are here today They brought to this state a fusion of the best of the cultures from oil ports of the country just as America fused the best blood of oil the nations to create a distinctive American type Iowa has every reason to be hopeful every reason to be happy Why not try it
