wed have been if there had been no political tampering with the rules of eco nomics Governor Talmadge of Georgia is one of the latest to master the art of helping himself to the political gravy without spilling It on his vest Those new less than a cent coins may be all right if they dont give lawmakers the idea of passing more sales taxes When your motor leaves you wondering whether youre

reduction for income tax purposes of corporate contributions to private charity up to 5 per cent of net income there is no logical expla nation based on a normality of attitude in the chief executive Clearly the thing demanded by the president would be inimical to community chest success here and throughout the land as well as to Catholic Protes tant and Jewish charities Why should the president wish to throw obstacles in the path of worthy causes Were left to guess One possibility is that a rancor still lingers with him against business based on the supreme courts decision knocking out NRA and on the numerous manifestations that the new deal policies and phil osophy have not inspired the confidence of American business He may be seeing red swinging wildly right and left in the hope that business will be some where in hitting distance Another is that the administration is not averse to seeingcommunity chests and other private agen cies in this field go by the boards Such a result would extend the paternalism of government accord Ing to socialistic blueprints Addressing himself to this subject David Lawrence recently wrote The socialistic idea of having the government furnish all the benefits directly and collect money from taxation would mean the end of private phil anthropy More and more the new deal is lining itself up against functions performed by private agencies and business and seeking to put all con trol and prerogative in the hands of government It may be of course that there are other and better explanations than the ones suggested here Our space will be open to them if they come to our at If newspapers heed all the pleas to keep my name out of the paper just what would they print for news Ethiopians prefer to be called that Which prob ably explains why Abyssinians is the word most used in Italy Whod have guessed that July was hotter on the average than either June or July of last year A fellow ought to get good training for politics telling fish stories DAILY SCRAP BOOKBy SCOTT PRODUCTION OF AUTO IN THE UNITED AQftW JOftfc PEPiK VEKR 1929 WHEN PRODUCED REACHED TOTAL VALUE OF OTHER VIEWPOINTS THE GREEKS HAD A WORD Minneapolis Journal Senator Schall got his mega lomaniac into the congressional record after all the senate expunged the word as applied to President Roosevelt from a Schall speech When later on Ma jority Leader Robinson objected to the inclusion of articles offered by the Minnesota senator Robinson brought the former incident up saying that Schall had declared a very high officer of the government to be a maniac Senator Schall replied No a megalomaniac which means a million times an egotist Mega is Greek for million Later in the debate Senator Black twitted the Minnesotan with not knowing what the word was Oh yes MrSchall protested I looked it up very carefully So it stands as part of the congressional record that Senator Schall has termed the president a mega lomaniac also that he hasvolunteered the information to his fellow senators that this six story word means a million times an egotist The effort contributed nothing to the dignity of the senate and still less to its erudition For the word used is a compound of two Greek roots and megalo means great The term signifies one who is insane on the subject of his own greatness But as far as the senate is concerned it seems to have accepted the Schall definition tention 1 DANISH FARMERS MARCH UNITED STATES is not the only nation in which farmers are marching on the capitals and asking public officials that they do something for agriculture Special trains from all parts ofDenmark rolled into Copenhagen recently bringing farmers to the capital for a call upon the king and a demonstration to impress the official life of Denmark that better prices must be accorded for agricultural products Thirty thousand Danish farmers staged a proces sion in Copenhagen next day A deputation from the farmers called on the king The movement was order ly but reflected the discontent in the agricultural communities of Denmark The Danish demonstration was probably of no more value toward the accomplishment of results than have the marches of the members of some farm orga on the capitol of Iowa and upon the state houses of other states The marches however indicate that the farmers of all countries are demanding a larger return for agriculture and are willing to go to great lengths to place their requests in a dramatic form before the world PUBLICIZING LIQUOR STORES Ralph E Overholser in Red Oak Express When he Iowa liquor commission assumed the job of law fully dispensing and regulating the flow of hard liquor n Iowa it issued this statement The very spirit of the liquor control act is that 10 more shall be done than to supply a demand and that nothingshall be done to stimulate a demand Within the month the commission has employed a publicity agent to publicize and ballyhoo the commis sions activities and reveal the fine qualities of the liquor sold by the commission Will that stimulate the demand You be the judge A state law prohibits the commission from adver tising hard liquor in newspapers but free publicity for news columns is apparently lawful Advertising and publicity are in the same category except that one brings revenue to a newspaper the other is run at the newspapers expense Both publicity and ad vertising are used for the same impress and sell the public on the item publicized SUGGESTING CANDIDATES Oelwein Register It looks as though Editor E P Chase of Atlantic is getting squared away for a race for the republican nomination for governor next year The two outstanding candidates thus far seem to be Mr Chase and George Wilson of Des Moines Either of them would make good governors and it has been suggested that the republicans should give one of them the job of running for governor and the other for lieutenant governor This would make a good team all right if it can be amicably settled as to which is to be the tail of the others kite Both are gubernatorial size and neither might care to take sec ond place in such a plan OUTTHE NORTH of AFRICA BEAirry AMD FAT ARE

HITLERS PAGANISM WILLIAM GREEN of the American Federation of Labor has called upon the American government to take appropriate action against the Hitler government to stop brutal inhuman treatment of the laboring classes in Germany The protest of organized labor against German persecutions cannot be ignored Surely the governing nations which make up the civilized world cannot longer remain indiffer ent to the actions of a tyrant such as Hitler to his excelling in brutality and fiendish persecution the rulers of a bygone pagan age The time has come when Germany ought to be boycotted not only by labor and its friends but by all the people of the United States We reproduce this here not to suggest that United States should take the lead in bringing Mad Adolf to time but merely as an evidence of the mounting wave of indignation he has brought to the German nation through his cruel absolutism WHY NOT MARSHALL FOR GOVERNOR Webster City FreemanJournal Whats the matter with Verne Marshall of the Cedar Rapids Gazette If Mr Marshall were elected governor of Iowa grafters in public office would be filled with fear Somehow Marshall seems to be able to detect a grafter before anybody else He not only has a nose for news but is especially gifted along the line of ferreting out crooks and grafters and there seems to be need of that kind of a man as chief executive of the state Marshall might not consider being a candidate but if he did enter the race he would be formidable in the primary FOR A PREPRIMARx CONVENTION Clarion Monitor A preprimary republican conven tion would materially assist in bringing order out of chaos at the 1936 election Have in attendance a repre sentative group from each county barring the fellows with an axe to grind and much should be accomp lished Such a convention should be able to name com petent and high class candidates and formulate a con structive and workable platform UNCLE SAM AS A CHISELER OF THE jokers in the PWA authorization is a clause giving the government permission to purchase steel in foreign countries if it can be ob tained 15 per cent below domestic prices And of course it can be for the reason that American steel makers pay workers 65 cents an hour while the going wage scaJe In other countries is 25 cents in Great Britain 29 cents in Germany and 17 cents in Bel gium Its a bit difficult to find defense for this method It would be an irony against American workers to buy a product abroad in a socalled na tional recovery scheme And if the clause is merely a threat its almost as ironical for the government to stan2 in the way of the steel workers chance of increasing his hourly earnings Its just one more case in which the government has been the foremost chiseler in the carrying out of its own policies JOURNALISTIC SUCCESS rules for financial success as a journalist are simple Begin work as a small boy Let your days start at 6 oclock and extend far into the night For get all worldly

both governor and senator ALGONAS TWO PAPERS Luverne News The two papers have not consoli dated both retain their separate identities but they are going to work on a more friendly basis eliminat ing much of the rivalry of the past three score years EDITORS MAIL BAG BREACH OF FAITH CHARGED MESERVEY Aug the acts of the Roosevelt new deal administration would have aroused the wrath of the American people However this administration has been able to get by with much that would have insured impeachment if some one else were president The presidential oath to preserve protect and defend the constitution of the United States has been nullified along with the demo cratic platform The new deal leader would provide personal government as a substitute for lawful gov ernment according to the constitution He would have us believe that we have outgrown our charter of liberty His horse and buggy statement gives us the key to his plans How has F D R been able to do this An exami nation of the government payroll provides the ans wer Scores of publicity and newspapermen have been hired to laud the new deal Such tactics are repug nant to everyone whohas a spark of decency in his makeup That is bribery and bribery is the disease that is gnawing at the vitals of American freedom The new deal has been enlarging its political orga nization and keeping itself in power by hiringpress agents at our expense to tell us how efficient Roosevelt and his parasites are Honestly how do you like that kind of new deal What do you think of the rate of increase in debt since the advent of new deal spending What is your opinion of those who dont LOGAN CLENDENEfG M D MODIFIED DIET BEST MODIFICATIONS of diet to meet the demands o 1V1 sick people can be learned easily once the funda mental principles of a balanced diet are understood Many housewives and even physicians are deterrec by the seeming difficulty of the subject and even in hospitals recourse is too often hai to rigid diet lists The principles o diet for individuals are however not complicated and can be made very simple In the articles thi week we shall try to simplify them Diet in disease does not violat the fundamental principles of a bal anced diet for a healthy person These fundamental principles are a follows A balanced diet must 1 fur nish enough energy to keep the body going 2 furnish enough material for growth and replace ment of tissue waste 3 furnish Dr ClendeniD enough water inorganic minera salts and vitamins 4 maintain the neutrality of the body 5 should furnish enough bulk 6 should be digested without discomfort Invalid Diet Modified All of these requirements must be met for thi invalid diet although some modification in the pre paration of food will have to take place according to circumstances Let us take probably the commonest condition fo which diet is Our first requirement is that the diet must fur nish enough energy to keep the body going Ob viously it has to do this for the diabetic too Bu the difficulty in the diabetic is that his body canno use carbohydrate starch and The energy t keep the body going comes from the carbohydrates the fats and the proteins and under normal condi tions we eat a diet which consists of 4 portions o carbohydrate by weight to 1 of fat and 1 of protein Since the diabetic cannot use as much carbohy drate as a normal person we do one of three increase the fat and protein in the diet to make u the energy balance cutting down the carbohydrates to a level that the diabetic can use or we reduce his energy requirements by putting him on an almost starvation diet or at least a diet which supplies far less than he has been accustomed to or we use in sulin which allows him to use carbohydrate to any extent Practical Method In practice the first of these methods is practical for most diabetics While most of us utilize 400 grams of carbohydrate the majority of diabetics cannot uti lize more than 200 However if we increase the fat in the diet from 100 to 150 grams we have increased the energy intake by 450 calories and most people can get along on the energy value of 200 grams ot carbohydrate 150 grams of fat and 100 grams ot protein Growth and tissue replacement is furnished by the protein in the food and the protein intake of the diabetic must be just as great as that of a normal person of the same age and weight Water mineral salts and vitamins need not be dis turbed in the diet of the diabetic The neutrality of the body or the balance between the acid foods and the alkaline foods may very easily be disturbed in the diabetic body because as you raise the fat content acid tends to accumulate In all the talk about acidity in foods few people realize that it is the fats not the fruits which produce acid ity However it has been found that if the starch and sugar in the diet are equal to or a little less than fat acidosis will not appear so we can arrange a dia betics diet quite safelywith this proportion in mind OVERS By J J MTJNDY keep their word Yours very truly CLARENCE RUIGH ACKNOWLEDGE SUBORDINATES MERITS HOW do you treat the fellow just below you on the ladder Do you kick him in the face figuratively every time you can without being found out by your superior Or do you reach down a helping hand when he is having a hard fight And how about the meri torious work he is doing Do you report that to a higher boss You not only fail very often to give credit where it belongs but you accept for yourself any credit that you can possibly assume A lot of bosses hold their jobs because of the good work done by the men under them It is a good boss who knows how to select his men in order to get unusual ser vice But is it not his duty to commend those who give such service and see that a knowledge of their capabilities becomes known Too many bosses ride along on the ability of their men some of whom really ought to be above the boss Be fair to those men who do exceptional work EARLIER

have been seeing an old yarn 9G5g in our exchange newspapers this time on Charles D Reed in charge of the United States weather bureau station in Des Moines It goes something like this A St Louis forecaster had been obtaining especially accurate re suits in his predictions and askec to explain his superior technique he said that he merely took Mr Reeds forecasts and placed them into re verse This story has appeared in num erous forms and is known to every body in the weather service Usually its that the reader of the forecast governs his actions by reversing the forecast It it is fair and warmer1 he carries an umbrella and wears an overcoat But nevertheless and notwith standing the facts are that eight or nine of the daily forecasts issued by the weather bureau are sub stantially correct for every ten fore casts issued It is not true of course that any official forecaster in Missouri has a record whereby he leads the entire country In fact all the official forecasts issued by the weather bur eau are prepared at five forecast centers namely Washington Chi cago New Orleans Denver and the Pacific coast It is true that many of the offi cials in charge at the other sta tions issue a local forecast But that is based on the state forecast received from the district forecast center And the individual is not at liberty to vary from the state fore cast unless he feels certain he can improve it as applied to his station contend writes J H L Ipl that what we need in this town now is parking lots Other cities have them and so can Mason City Our folks can walk a block and pay 10 or 15 cents for parking their car and be safe from arrest Also office men could walk a block or two and park their cars or an hour or half day and not eel they are subject to arrest tor needing their car for transportation o and from their business Last year I suggested to a young man that he rent the lot at Second treet and Federal avenue for a larking lot He did so and charged he nominal sum of 10 cents for an 11 day parking privilege Results While before he rented the lot it was full of cars all the time when he charged 10 cents for an all days parking or 50 cents a week for bus inessmen they all left him as if the lot was poisoned We have got to come to it and now is the time to make a start There is the lot at Federal and Sec ond street southwest there is the Cadwell corner lot at First ana Delaware avenue northeast and other smaller lots that can be had for parking places Let the council and police department bring this about Then when the cops band you a red card also on that card they should tell you of these parking lots offer this charm service gratis to women readers Its a tip from Robert Quillen the mind bacK of Aunt Het on the question of bringing the male of the species under your control To quote from a letter to his flap per daughter Men are vain creatures and their vanity makes your task easy As a man thinks he is at peace with God because he is at peace with himself so he is pleased with a wo man who makes him pleased with himself Make him feel at ease so that he talks freely and consciously appears at his best and he will go away with a high opinion of himself and give you all the credit How charm ing she is he will say but he will mean I never feel illatease or awkward or dumb when I am with her How is it done Simply by feel ing at ease yourself If you are sure of yourself and neither selfcon scious nor embarrassed you can create an atmosphere of casual in formal friendliness that causes the male to purr with delight Thats the reason so many boys fall in love with older women Mature women are wise enough to make them feel at ease You cant seem charming if you are trying to shine The trick is to let the other fellow shine And that is all of it except the elemental matter of being clean and dainty and sensible and wellmannered and sin cere and unselfish and thoughtful and generally decent All charms work alike The charming homes
