Senate Seat 4 n I 7 Jf hi fci ill tV I I By HERBERT KUJMMEK May 2 Arizona s six foot one time cowboy who has been its repre sentative in the senate since the state was admit ted to the Union has nothing to worry about in keeping hia seat until 1941 Henry Foun tain Ashurst however is not the type of poli tician who waits until a few months before an election to campaign furiously for tne privilege of retaining his toga He is laying the groundwork now for the eventualities of six years hence when again he must face the Arizona electorate His methods are perhaps the most peculiar most un orthodox and refreshing of any em ployed by a public official Tha Ashurst system merely is to detail truths to his constituents which many Washington politicians would like to tell their own if they dared Cause for Humility The following for example is a quotation from a document he has compiled for consumption by Ari zona voters Some time ago I made the aston ishing and for a while to myself the distressing discovery that the per petuity of the American government did not absolutely depend upon the reelection of one Henry Fountain Ashurst to the senate of the United States When a senator makes such a discovery at first the fact appears incredible It seems as if thestars above his head had faded and the earth had slipped beneath his feet But as time rolls on such a discov ery proves to be a real antidote to further flight V3 time brings tothe discoverer VfejrgpltyjLpd a humility to be envied the worlds greatest pbUoso Says He Can Take It To one letterwriting constituent who threatened You are dead po litically unless you change your at titude Ashurst addressed the fol lowing reply and made it public I have been for years a critic and I hope I am able without mak ing a wry face to take a small dose cf that which I have given other sizable doses in other words I not only ladle it out but can also take it Pardon my dropping into slang but it conveys my thought precise At another time before a luncheon gathering of Arizonans he declared You do not send me to Washing ton because you are interested in grave questions of national and in ternational policy I am

sunshine side of the depression The phrase Lets Be Happy is being used rather extensively and is not so bod yet it might be made better This business of wishing your self into happiness is the Pollyanna variety of good cheer One can be hopeful patient or persevering in the face of dis couraging conditions This is the proper attitude and an ap propriate motto would be Lets be patient But people can not be urged to be happy in spite of the conditions that sur round them We do not think or resolve or wish ourselves into happiness The people of Iowa do not say Lets Be Happy They can spend their time more profitably considering the sound basis for happiness which they have here in Iowa They con realize that on March 1 1935 the Iowa farm income was 24 millions higher than for the first two months of the pre ceding year they also can notice that the year opened with a 100 per cent increase in new car buying a pretty sure indi cation that things are better Iowa has had no dust storms although we have received the dust The state as a whole has better than average rainfall It should be remembered too that southern Iowa did not suffer so much from drought last year as it did from chinchbugs There is nothing the matter with Iowa and there never has been So let every man say to his neighbor Know the Greatness of Iowa If you know that you cant help but be happy All Southern California is but a byproduct of Iowa corn and hogs The state that can boast of such a surplus is the undis guised envy of the whole nation Things are getting better in a business way throughout the nation Iowa is sitting pretty Lets know cant help but be happy BRITAIN BUILDS UP AIR DEFENSE WacDonald Says Nation Is Already Taking Steps for Expansion Copyright 1935 bjThe Associated LONDON May 2
