City Iowa as Second Class Matter They seem to take a kind of intolerant satisfaction in having made someone suffer because ot unwisdom or a mistake They are forever collecting their pound ot flesh And what do they get out of that attitude toward lite and people Surely not lasting satisfaction not peace not serenity not happiness Dont feel sorry for tho easy mark He is always paying somebody elses debts He was always getting stuck for this or that or the other thing He Is like n pack horse upon which people bane their troubles But the man with the easy mark temperament has something that the hard man and the poundoftleshman never gets He finds tranquillty Ha is usually the sort that can rise above the manifold annoyances and irritations tha make the lives of smsilter folks unhappy So far

degree enslaves i will nor leaves tlie judgment IOWA AFRAID OF WATER ONE almost suspects that Iowa in its roadbuMing en deavors has become afraid of water There isnt even a moment of reluctance when our steam shovels and graders make their approach to a hill that has to be cu down or a depression to be filled for the placing of a road bed The question Whos going to pay for this1 doesnt even suggest itself But when we come to a particularly it i lie between two develop chills insomnia an several other types of torment not listed In the diction ary Activities are brot to a close at once by the regula agencies of roadbuilding and theres a long wait for pi vate enterprise to meet the situation by means of to bridges Where essentially Is the difference between supnlj Ing a road thru a cut and supplying a bridge over Grant that the latter Is more expensive as often is and there is still only the difference of degre America has committed itself to supplying roads for tho use of the public with revenues gained in certain es tablished ways Weve carried this idea thru to its lusjfctil Its only in the matter toll bridges that we have fallen short of the goal Who is there that passes thru a toll gate without feel Ing either In suppressed or expressed form a definite resentment against the levy Gov John Hammill nt Council Bluffs expressed his sentiment on the question In this way Every time I cross the bridge I like the idea paying toll less The toll harrier on public highways has been outworn would not tolerate such a pro posal within the state anil iinco interstate traffic on highways is well developed why should it be tol erated along our stale boundaries1 The governor let It be known that he would recom nd bridge to the next Iowa legislature Power Mason City Is an inland city B hundred miles re moved from the nearest boundary river There would be relatively little to be gained here In a selfish way by substitution free traffic bridges for the present toll system But the principle involved is so unmistakably clear that it shouldnt be ignored even In places where there is nothing of selfish gain to be obtained ASSOCIATEDPRESS POLICY IN ALMOST every political campaign the charge creeps up that one candidate or the other receives the bene fit ot news distortion Responsible writers on the mod ern newspaper however know that altho a newspaper usually supports one candidate or other such support is given in the editorial columns alone What is true of Individual newspapers doubly true of press associations since they include papers of oppos ing political views To forestall this year the usual complaints of par tisanship the Associated Press of which the CUobeGa zette is a member has Issued a set of rules tor the gov ernment of Its correspondents This statement Kent Cooper rends as follows We are on the eve of what promises to be a memor able political campaign Every associated Press man will share in the responsibility it imposes Keep In mind the necessity that our report must be absolutely nonpartisan Avoid predictions speculation and editorial opinion Isnfar ns we are responsible for what is said there must be nothing that may lie con strued for or against any political faction Do not use stories of election betting or straw votes In describing attendance at political meetings do not estimate capacity in numbers or In any manner open to disputes But we want all the news Do not withhold a story because It is partisan if it may be attributed to a re sponsible source For example statements from political headquarters are desired it they contain news and arc credited to party spokesmen These statements must speak for themselves and their leads should be brief without inference deduction or other editorial comment All anonymous expressions ot opinion must be avoided Write only what can be substnntlnted During the campaign as at all other limes the As sociatcd IMcrs roport must be fair truthful
