Brainerd Daily Dispatch (Newspaper) - May 8, 1939, Brainerd, Minnesota It once again Waves of fantastic rumours Are sweeping the country As they do from time to time. From Mouth to Mouth pass these Nasty Little stories growing in viciousness with each repetition. Sometimes they Are the result of Mere malice and misspent time and Energy. Sometimes they Are deliberately planted and spread by professional whisperer for a Price or for some despicable end. Such an organization of professional Rumo mongers was exposed not Long ago in new York. These whispering campaigns sweep the country every so often. Easy to recall Are the Story about Warren g. Harding when he was a candidate for the presidency a lie doubtless deliberately spread though even his official political opponents denounced both the rumours and its whisperer. Everybody knows the old Chestnut about the Leper in the tobacco factory though thousands of thoughtless people swallowed it and at one time it was furtively whispered across the land. Everybody has heard the apocryphal department store stories about the dress sent out on approval and used As a shroud returned and re sold. This crops up every so often in various cities never with the slightest bit of proof or even evidence. Probably most of these rumours Are simply propagated by a Type of person who likes to hear the flapping of his Mouth and is entirely thoughtless of the misery and worry and grief that he or she May cause. Unfortunately As much can not be said of the latest Rumor to Fly evilly about and Perch on any shoulder that neglects to Brush it off. It concerns refugees from Europe and it comes at a time when with legislation under consideration about admitting such refugees it is More than possible that it is being deliberately spread. With local variations it runs to the effect that some Large establishment mercantile or manufacturing is firing wholesale its old employees to make room for a flood of european refugees. This Story has been thoroughly investigated in Pittsburgh and elsewhere and found to be without the slightest foundation. In fact anyone who thinks about it for even a moment must see that it can not be True on any Large scale for the total num Ber of refugees admitted thus far is not great enough to cause the conditions attributed to a single situation. But that does not Stop the irresponsible people who thoughtlessly repeat the stories. Now if Ever we must think and be Cool and Calm. There is Good reason to believe that stories like this one Are being deliberately circulated by people interested in stirring up feeling against refugees. Whether this is True or not it is certainly the part of Wisdom to take All such stories with a Grain of Salt when one hears them and certainly never to pass them on unless one has definite reason to believe them True. Done to be Gullible. Now As never before we americans need to weigh consider and investigate everything we hear. # a a a Posy for Alf few men have had a worse Licking in a presidential race taken it with better Grace and looked better afterwards than Alf Landon of Kansas. Speaking purely of the political race one might almost say of Alf Landon As Shakespeare said a nothing in his life became like the leaving nothing of Landon a splendid record As governor became him quite so much As his admirable spirit since his defeat for the presidency in 1936. The real innate Caliper of the Man has been amply shown by his Complete Lack of any a grudge spirit a and his obvious and simple Devotion to his country even though his one time rival with Many of whose policies he does not agree is running it. Landon accepted with real Grace his appointment As a Delegate to the pan american conference and served without rancor making friends for the United states and commanding the admiration of those who met him. His recent statement on foreign policy even though he does not completely agree with the president is another evidence of his admirable Devotion to our common country. A Posy for Alf Landon a Man whom defeat could not sour in who disappointment could Only bring out More strongly his Many admirable qualities. A a we souvenir Hunters there is something deep in the american character that makes us All irrepressible souvenir Hunters. No other people is so completely the slave of the pilfered poster the appropriated Ash tray. This is a curious thing. We begin As Mere children.

He let her talk on and on and her returning composure was his Reward a a sudden meeting a girl he could not forget and a blizzard had drawn him As if by Fate into the tangled pattern of their lives. What role was he to play would Alan believe that he had nothing to do with Emily a decision was there any Hope of the future with Emily could he face Alan secretly Happy As he had to admit he was that Emily soon would be free Emily a voice was lost in the flood of questions that assailed him.
