lest j SHOULD REMAIN IN PRISON flies It was just five years ago that the trial of Nathan F Leopold Jr and Richard Loeb I slayers of little Bobbie Franks was the sensation of the entire nation The attitude of the young slayers as they sat in tie courtroom with their expensive clothes plucked byebrows and oiled hair sneering and grinning over testimony on their ugly thrillkilling confident that I their wealth and the power of their attorney Clarence iDarrow would win for them an easy sentence was at that time the object of great public condemnation Since the trial the fathers of both Loeb and Bob Ibie Franks have died one fromthe shock and horror 1 of his sons deed the other of a broken heartat the cruel loss of his only child It could be the wish of the newspaper men and the general public that the Franks murderers be al llowed to sink into oblivion in their life sentences at Jsephrate Illinois prisons But it will be remembered Ithat at the time of sentence numerous authorities on law declared that it would be possible to free the slayers in ten years on records of good behavior if public opinion against them had by that time died out I The feeling of repulsion for these two suave per petrators of the nearly perfect crime was no sud en heat of mob hatred it was a rational condemna tion which grew stronger as each nasty detail was re pealed Theirs is a crime which neither time nor good behavior can make pardonable It should be the de of every conscientious newspaper in America necessarily to keep fanned the hatred against the jmths but to keep fresh in the memories of Its eaders the understanding of the nature of their hor iNedeed so that no amount of money nor political tluence can throw back upon society the men who Bew an only son thatthey might vave a thrill i i IE rrSTRUE THEYRE NOT HUMAN ADMIRAL HILARY P JONES of the United States navy has voiced the opinion that naval officers generally speaking are not opposed to a program of sarmament He himself of course was an Amer fcan representative at the Geneva conference at which als subject was considered Quite reasonably the admiral points out that while would be grossly negligent of our duty if we did keep in mind always the defense of our country Its enormous commercial interests spread over jyilpUt the seven seas am 3Ure I amspeaking fthe mind of all thinking naval officers when I say that the navy desires a limitation tnat will be equitable to all concerned and will not jeopardize what we con n aider absolutely necessary to our national defense If that be the true attitude of the naval officers must be a marvelously unselfish group if they r arewilling to stand backand see the horizons of jfiieir profession drawn in about them they have in J Jeed cast out of their makeup much of the stuff that STTmarka most of us as human In this connection it is to be noted that Admiral Jones is retired from active service Developments in MASON CITY GLOBEnA7RTTW GETTING AT CANCER rpHt medical worltf will be conservative but watch ful in the matter ofdiscoveries concerning cancer by Dr Sokoloff University of Prague Sokoloff told physicians gathered in Boston that his remedy is based on the theory that cancer develops only in areas of the body where the supply of oxygen Is scant and where there Is also a disturbance of the endocrine glands Sokoloff has experimented on 1000 animals injecting his compound His experiments he says have been 70 per cent successful The work of turning back one of the great scourges of the human race goes on PAYING FOR CARELESSNESS pERHAPS there is some real sense in a new law passed by the legislature of Connecticut The law is designed to make it possible for motorists who have never had accidents to buy insurance for less money than those who

r Wlmt coIleKe did Col Robert Stewart present funds for a library J C E A presented to his alma mater Coe Iowa to Authorities state that a r will ghde steadily downwards while a sail received the suggestion at various times that Eye Observing ought to be con verted into a daily feature The guments are made that the co tents of the department could be ment basis andthat Jwouid now that it even those who now are frightened away by the dimensions of the depart mentPersonally Ive come to look upon this department as a sort of weekly institution While Imper fectly willing to bow to the wishes of the majority of readers I should Tr some rather clearcut evidence that there is i majority in favor of the change from weekly to daily installments Id appreciate an opinion on this question from YOU if you are one of that con siderablesized body of persons who would rather have the department done away with entirely than spread the nuisance out over six days a week recognize the subject dis

that exists in Mason A young lady that I have in mind is i srraduate of the local high school and Hamiltons Business col lege and then attended the Normal at Cedar Falls After receiving a certificate she taught two years in a country the meantime some of her support was taken away and It was necessary she earn more money so she came back into Mason City in search of a position She sought several county positions only to find they were held by mar ried women whose husbands are supposed to make a living for them She finallyaccepted a position for mrdly a living wage with the prom sa of the better position In the of fice as soon as it was available after being there a few days she earned once again a married wom an was holding the better position ierhusband has a lucrative posi tion His salary Is such that both could have a comfortable living but the dutiful wife prefers to work chanced to visit a city in southeastern Iowa the other day and was impressed bv Uie large number of hitching posts Kemember them Horses heads with rings for tying purposes ex tended on either side from the bit m the chargers mouth I wondered then and I wonder now if there is Ill say those remnants of another age in Mason City I confess I havent seen any insist anew that not enough g attention is being given to the subject of public con venience in the handling of detours m Iowas primary road system For instance Friday morning I struck the pavement west of Algona by jogging north a mile from the Whittemore road three or four miles west of Algona Except for having to turn on to a temporary bridge to thenortheast of Whittemore the new paving was extremely inviting At night I came back over the same route That Is I tried to But to my dismay I found a huge cement mixer obstructing the path to the tempor ary bridge I did what dozens of other cars were forced to do turned around on the narrow paving and went back to the old road into Whittemore Possibly there was some good reason for the mixer be ng where it was But there was no excuse for a failure to place at least a partial barrier across the paving there at Whittemore with an ex Jlanatiou that the bridge was closed At the best detours are leg ible And I doubt seriously whether t can be said they are at their best at present am In receipt of a complaint Ifrom L M about the prac tice of fillingstations which permit their patrons to drive on to tod occupy the sidewalk while get ting their gasoline or oil She has occasion to use each day the side walk on the south side of the street across from the armory and not in requently she is forced to go out nto the street in order to get to ler destination She thinks there is an infringement upon the rights of the pedestrian involved in this transaction wonder how it would work out R H has conceived the idea of having the state equip every rear license plate with a little red reflecting light Such a plan she argues would give every automobile a rear light whether or not its electric system was work ing It would be a special protec tion for occupants of the car stalled at night as well as for the ap proaching motorist She ventures THREE Sundown Stories By MARY GRAHAM BONNEB BLIND MANS BUFF JOHN and Peggy blindfolded themselves This was J playing the game differently from the way they usually played it where only one person was blind folded and tried to catch the others But tho little black clock had thot this would be a good way to play it now Of course his legs were very much shorter than either Peggys or Johns But he dodged them again and again It was really quite hard to catch him To be sure they were all in such wide open land that it was extremely difficult to catch anything when blindfolded But the little black clock did not go far away He stayed near by Sometimes he was very quiet and they thot he might have gone farther off But then they would hear him move a little He was excellent at dodging Excellent At lost John got hold of him

been issued anyway Now the matter will be for the voters to definitely decide on October S THE ROAD ALOFT Reporter Some 216 cities have now established themselves on the air map as aircraft manufac turing or operations centers Every day planes fly 80000 miles with passengers mail and express be tween these cities which are linked by 30000 miles of established air ways Mail planes fly 50000 miles

and note the happy unions that have endured 25 40 and 50 years or longer Mar riage is a great success and it is the ony thing for young men and women who want to get the most out of life And the older they get if they choose wisely the more will they realize tins fact SPINSTERS INSURANCE Oelweln Register Over in Jeru salem the girls take out insurance against being a spinster Tlie best insurance against being a spinster in this country is for a girl to be a real woman and stop the flapping of a flapper This flapper Idea is all right when a young manjs simply out for a good time he comes to the point of settling down andwanting to make a home he is more anxious to find a girl who is more like what his mother was than he is of the sort that flits about and tries to see how much she can swear how many cigarets she can smoke and how much she can drink It is all right to play around with these flappers but when It comes to making a home and rearing a family even the present day boy wants a girl who has not been pawed around over by every lounge lizard who might happen along He does not want the girl who tries to see how close she can come to the brink and not step over He does not want the girl who has worn out every sweet passion in tantalizing others He wants a real American girl and this sort we have described are not This may seem a little old fashioned and not conforming to the single standard we have heard so much about but we believe the best American boy would still prefer that if ihere is any drink ing smoking swearing and such going on he prefers to do it him self rather than the one who he expects to call his wife some day WHAT HE HAD LEFT Grundy Center Register A farm er showed ua a check a few days ngo for which ho had just re ceived for delivering the last in stallment of last years corn crop He had 100 acres in corn and with what he fed and what he sold his born brot him better than 550 an acre An acre of ground that will raise a 550 crop a year Is worth about 500 an acre which we at one time had hopes would become the normal value of Iowa land THE DEMOCRATIC VIEWPOINT Now Hampton Triliune Senator Brookhart is speaking long and loud against the proposed protective tar iff bill He declares it will cause further ruin to farmers and farm sections Like Mr Borah Mr Brook hart favored a republican election last fall They both were for Hoover The republican partybosses are for this wicked tariff bill and they say that President Hoover will sign ft if congress passes it The time for remedy la on election day CORN IN MINNESOTA Hampton Chronicle The Minne apolis newspapers say that corn n Minnesota is out of the danger from the frost It corn is safe in Minne sota it ought to be safe in good old Iowa where the weather is sup posed to be warmer but not KO much warmer here this year than it was in Minnesota at COAST GRAPE GROWERS Mitchell County Press The Iowa Homestead doesnt think the Cali fornia grape growers deserved much consideration from the federal farm board since their overproduction grew out of expansion to supply wine since the passage of the prohi bition amendment The California growers according to the Home stead have canvassed Iowa people and sold their wines under a posi tive guarantee that they would fer ment and make powerful Intoxi cants and they simply overdid tha expansion of tho grape industry to meet the needs of this underhanded business Then too it should bo pointed out they were in direct competition with Iowa corn while they were doing It SHOWER BATH IN TAIL Iowa
