A nd He A sks for Mercy

GEORGE CHISHOLM killed two of his three sons by drowning them in the ship

canal at East Chicago, Ind., because the woman with whom he was living objected 10 caring for them. The third e caped d 11th because Chisholm was afraid he would :;cream when taken to the river.

Chisholm confessed to the crime and in­tends to throw himself on the mercy of the court.

110w can he even hope for mercy T The crime was premeditated. Chisholm hid the weights with which to sink the little fel­lows beneath the water, two days before the killing actually occurred. TIe llimself al· most followed in their wake, but llc lacked thc nerve, yet his hand did not falter when lhe livcs of his own helpless sons were in­volyed.

'l'he angel of mercy cannot but frown on such a man. There was no mercy in his own act, nis own sons pel'ished by his hands. H e is a menace to the welfare of society. The law should and must take its toll.

A Day for the Law School

THE Law Jubilee is dead, but its memory lingers. Since its historic burial two

years ago, the laws have nursed the remem­brance of tllat "tradition" until it has grown to be almost a hallucination. They speak of the jubilee at every opportunity; they revere its name. In the la.w smoking room is a large piece of black crepe, in memory of the dear departed.

Thus the laws have carried 8 chip on their shoulder for two years against anyone who may oppose their sacred cow. They have rubbed salt into the wounds caused by the tearing away of their brain child.

Now all this is to be changed, for the best. A celebration in honor of the jubUee's ghost is not to be held, but rather, by amica.ble agreement with the faculty, a day is to be set aside for "furthering the spirit of the college of law." At that time programs will be arranged to show the best work of the college, and to bring out its highest ideals.

Such a goal iii a worthy one. If one dares RjJcak of the engineers in the same sentence with the laws, the project compares to the l\[ccca celebration of the former school. .Mecca week has as its aim the unification of the engineering college and the exhibi­tion to the public of its accomplishment. Law day can have the same benefits.

Why not extend the plan to every col­lege in the university' Let each set aside a day or a week for a display of its achieve­ments, to show the people of Iowa what the Rtudents are doing. Let such occasions also be times of bringing the groups within one college more closely together, of bringing ont the ideals of the profession, whether it be law, medicine, or dentistry.

A Cynic's Ideals "WE are certainly entering, if we are not

already in, an age of cynicism re­garding ideali, tic conceptions of human na­ture and the objective8 of human life."

'rhis statement sounds as if it might have come from the pen of a cynic. Certainly tendencies on this campu8 do not seem to be showing a marked deviation from the idealistic path.

Religion could surely be regarded as one of those idealistic conceptions of human na­ture referred to above. A new school of religion has been established here and seems to be both popular and successful. Churches do not seem to lack in student attendance.

The recent fine arts conference held here seems to contradict this aforesaid tendency. It has shown an appreciation of the so­called higher things of life.

1tf1l8ical l'rosrllUls, pla~8, leet\1~ - aU

seem to draw audiences that bespeak of both quantity and quality.

The celebrations that have been held on Dad 's day and the one planned for Moth· er's day seem to have an idealistic quality in them.

Perhaps tIle sponsoring of these occa­sions is due more to curiosity on the part of the student body than to a seeking after ideals. That curiosity trait would hardly be expected to be found, however, in the makeup of a cynic.

Higher Education

IN a midwestern college a woman, 65 years old, matriculated this seme ter. She

maintains that she is a happy great·grand· mother and that she had always longed for the advantages of a higher education. Now that she had thc time and money and inde· pendence to pursue it she feels she can make the remainder of hel' life fuller and richer thereby.

It would seem, however, that the wisdom she would glean from text books, professor', laboratories, and experiments would be like dust after the full life he ha · lI..lready livcd : 'Vould not one be rather ullobsci'ving, un­absorbing, who could not gain as much from sixty·five years of actual living that II col­lege graduatc does in his fOU L' year school term t

Student come to school that they may lcarn llow to get the most out of life, that they may acquire an adequate background and firm foundation on which to start this tra\'el. Thosc who cannot hlwe that prc· paratory educational advantage m\L~t lcarn in the school of experience. WheLhel' it be a fool's school or not, it is true that it reo quires much more time and hard knocks than any other. But no matter where we learn these t11ings, the fact remains that they are absorbed somehow, and it would seem that when we reach the ripe and full years of middle age they would be aspil'ing to give out more to the newcomers, not stal·ting on the ground floor with t hem.

The First of Several

UPPElt lOW A and ornell are about to be merged. By a yote of 177 to 89, thc

Uppcr Iowa conference of the Methodist Episcopal church voted to unite the two conference colleges "because of economic and other r easons."

The action has been well taken although it will mean thc loss of school connections and traditions for the graduates of one of the two institutions. It has been under­stood that Upper Iowa will be fused with Cornell at Mt. Vernon, although no desig­nation has been made Ill! to which school will lose its identity.

Agitation for the merger came when a $1,600,000 campaign was authorized at the last conference. The result of the move for the consolidation brought with it a motion, to raise $1,200,000 for the merged institu­tion. IIerc alone is a saving of $400,001), which is no small sum for a denomi.national organization .

Yet, th is cut in expenditures is little more than a notch in comparison with the money that would be needed for th main­tenance of the schools in thc future . Even now, the conference learned from Chicago that a fund of $4,000,000 would be need cd to place the individual schools on a sound financial ba is. Today, financial solidarity is essential for every educational institution if it is to retain its place with sister schools.

With the merger, the students will also receive thcir benefit·. Thc building of a larger school at Mt. Vernon will enhance its attractiveness to greater men in the du­cational field. Increased eontacts come with a growth in attendance, and no modern edu­cator will overlook the merits of this phase of college life. Group organizations which were established at each of the sister schools will be materially stl·engthencd.

Within the next decade, we no doubt shall see several similar educational mergers.

Irony and Indians (From The Cellllr Itnilids Gazette)

Congress has been (]i~cl1ssing serio~l sly several questions concerning the Indians. One of the major problems is the admini­stration of oil wealth, developed on Indian .lands.

Years ago a great many Indians were placed on somewhat worthless land in the southwest. Irony smiled at the grim Indian and grinned at Uncle Sam. Oil in abund­ance has been discovered. Many of the Indians are immensely wealthy. Now our country faces many difficult problems in discharging its obligations as self·appointed guardian of the American Indians.

In many respects the Indians have been exploited by white men. Our whisky and the Indians' oil have written some tragic stories, In many ways the story of the Anlerican Indian is pathetic. Our civiliza· tion has been too much for him in many reo spects.

Contrary to the general impres~ion, the Indian population actually has bcen in· creasing in recent years. But there is enough oil wealth flowing from Indian land to care for all Indians. One of the ques­tions the administration has to decide is whether the excess wealth of one Indian tribe may be used to help other Indians. Whatever decisions are made in the admin­istration affairs, the prior claims of the Indian mU8t be respected.

The Indian deserves justice and honest consideration. The federal government must rigidly protect the Indian'8 rights and lee that he is not exploited by his white bro~er,

The Wild West in Iowa (l'urnlshed to The Assoclo tell

Press by the State Bistorical Socl· ety of Iowa at Iowa City).

The wild west, now a mutter of legend. existed in nctual fact In I OWa Immediately followi ng the Clvli war. Tbe railroads had not pushed weat· ward to the Missouri river, Inillall s were yet commonplace, and the ro.ugh lite Of the frontle .. prevailed wherever the white man estabJlshed his clvlUzatlon.

A picture of western Iowa while It was yet range country has beon left by O. Smith Stanton, wbo came from New York to Boone In 1865, a nd wrote of local (I'ontler contll· tlons In his book. "When the Wild· wood 'Vas In Flower."

The town of Boone was then called Monta na and at that time was the western terminal of the Chi· cago and Northwestern railroad , which did . not reach Coun Cil Bluffs until 1867.

Montana at thnt time consisted ot bu tone 8tr('et, a slxt)'-Coot 8trl[1 of prairie wIthout a tr e In eIght. Along It were strung some 200 one· -"orled, detached frame buildings. The buildIngs had bee n hastily con· ~tructed, tor In a m onth they would "gain he moved lo the end of the railroad as the tl'8ck crawled " ·est· ward .

Music, Whlsl{ey Abundllnt "TIlII. black·mustached, rough·

looking men, with wide sombl'eros, their pan til In Lhelr bools" jostled their \V8 Y through tho street lOOking for trouble, and genernlly finding It. " Mr. Stanton wrote. Music and whlskc)\ were plentiful, and an oc· 'na onnl fIght added to the excite· menlo

Indians in their native costumes, and young a rmy orncel's mingled wllh railroad employes and with men who had left homes in lhe easL to seek fortunes In the wesl. Capl. tall sts and mining englneel's walled for ' the next stage toward the Rock· les.

Emigrating families with their prairie schooners made their WilY

westwnt'd, whlle slow moving oxen yoked to government Wagon8 h auled grain lind provisIons to gover nm ent posts. Long Jines Of mule tellms

moved a long the railway grade with scrapers, grain and food suppllee. Unhaltered animals wandered about town.

Western Iowa nt that time was a cattle country, and graBS fed herds, "smooth and fa t " were driven in by cowboys from ti,e Missouri river plateau to be shipped to eastern mnrkots.

Ranches occupied the land now '\lUllzed for fnrmlng. Blizzards on the open prairIe In winter, and tor· ntldocij Or "cyclones" occa.lonally threatened th!' rancher, while au· tumn prairie fires endangered hay· stncks and caUle.

Crews Stop],ed to Uunt The first t raIns Into the west

were operated In a haphazard man· nel', with the armed driver In .. rans· porting mail and passengers througn the country that wns stili Infested with horse thieves and prowling Indians. At first thero wer& one passenger nnd severnl freight trains each way a (lay. Trnln crews made a habit of stopping In the unsettled country to hunt, until railroad of· flclals drew up drastic regulatlonl to prevent delay.

With the engines and stock cars comparatlvcly smn ll, len or twelve cars was a hetwy load. 'fwo nights and a day wel'e required to make lhe trip to Chicago, u nel many cat· tie perishcd on the way. With no snow fences Or plows, trains In the wlnler timn were often stuck In cuttl drifted full Of snow.

After one slorm. the NOI·thwes(· ern l'aBroad was unable to move a. train In western Iowa. for th ree weeks. A fl'elght U'aln, blocked In a. cut was completely covered over, with no th Ing In s ight but snow nnd the smoke stack Of the locomotive, as thl) tl'alomen rHreated to the nearest farm house.

Westel'll a nd northwestern Iowa. h owever, (Ilel /lot long r emain &

range country. As settlers moved In during the late sixties a nd early seven tics the avallablo land will' mnde Inlo homesteads and cattle men wcro forced to seek the stili open ranges [m·ther to tho west. The wild west In Iowa. picturesque as It was, soon pa88ed away.

Commerce Department Represents Multitude of Government Capacities

WASHINGTON. Ma rch 9 (AP) - 'nhe chap who laments the lack of business In government overlooks tho United States department or commerce. If there Is no business done In that department, then the promotion of trade, manufacturing. shipping, fishing, transportatIon , sta. tlstics , geodetic sUl'veys, patents and standards Isn't business. As a mat· ter of tact tbe department a nd Its secI'etary, Herbert Hoover, h a ndle an unending variety of business.

In Its administrative capacity tbe department maIntains lighthouses along tbe coasts. charts domesti c watera, registers and Inspects ves, sels at the merchant mal'lne and enforces navigation laws.

The orlglnnl work of promotion Is even more extensive. Nominally the department seeks to hllp Industry to simplify processes, Increase out· put. eliminate waste In pI'oductlon and distribution and minimize un· employment. Actually , It conducts Investigations Inlo the problems of prod uctlon, transportation and sal of American made goods. It ~l elp8 the mining Indusll'y to saCeguard life. It encourages Invention through the grant of patents. It Ill'otocta and preserves the fisheries. 1t enum· erates population and eompllcs sta· tlstlcs, It supplies classified and trade Informntion to American pro · ducers and sblppers, and It alds them In developIng foreign markets.

But that Isn·t all. The airplane and the radio bave added to the de· pal·tment's labor8. It now encodr. ages and reglster8 the commerolal use of aircraft and exerclse8 certain supervIsory functlonll In connection with radIo broadc8.lltlng.

For convenience the department diVided Into ten bureaus and these In turn Into two groupe, those which admlnl8~er 11\011'8 de.tllgned to q.1I1

In tho admlnlstra· tlve g roup are the bureaus of navi· gatlon and of lighthouses, the steambont Inspection service Rnd the coast and geodeUn survey. In the second group are the bureau8 of for· elgn a nd domestlo commerce, cen· sus, standards, fisheries, mln.s and the plltent office.

Milk Factory to Open Soon; Men

Test Equipment Hire Many Trucks to

Handle Cans on 25 Routes

Smoke rolled from the large Ilmokestack on the old brIck bulld· Ing at 324 E. Mark<!t street yes· terday as workmen tested the two 150 horsel)OWer bollers In prepara· tlon for the opening of the powde l" cd Tn 11k factory next week.

AU machinery necessary tor open· lng the I)iant has been Installed but ~ma \I finIshing touches are needed before actual operation can begin, J. N. Dary, manager ot the com· pany, said yesterday. Next Wed· nesday or Th ursday are the probable days for opening.

Twenty·flve routes have been ".tabll8hed wIthIn a thIrty rone 1'\ldlus of Iowa CIty. Contracts have becn sIgned with as many owners ot trucks, who w!ll be requIred to put their f ull time In the hauUng ot whole m 11k from farms to the (actory.

To IMtAII More Equipment At least 50,000 pound8 ot milk

will be needed to keep the plant run· nlng at capacIty, Dary says. Pro· vision has been made in planning the preeent machInery to have more equipment InstaUed when necessary.

Powdered skim milk, powdered butter milk, and buttpr. will be man· ufactured by the company. Only whole milk will be purchlUled from the farmers. This will be separated Immediately upon being receIved at Iho plant.

'1'he skImmed milk will be at once lJut through the powdering machine while the Cl'e8.m Is warmed to the proper temperature and churned. Large new churns of the latest ap· proved types are to be used.

Arter the butter I" ch urned the l,uttermllk which Is lett will also I,e powdered In a. process similar to that given the skim milk.

Markets for the three products \\,1\1 vary. The butter will be sold I,oth locally and shlpped to eastern mal'kets. The powdered skim milk will be sold to ma nufacturers at bak· Illg companIes and also to candy li nd co nfectionery companies where large quantities of It are used.

Fanners to Vile Products 'fi'armel's from whom tile milk Is

i ~l'c hased wlll use most ot the I'owdel'ed buttermilk 8S teed tor hogs In place at the skim milk now used.

I!-rom ten to fifteen men ",11\ be employed In the plant besides the twenty·tlve truck drivers who wl1\ eoUoet the milk. The Cl'ew needed Is sma ller than the usual plant u ees On accolmt of the machlnery being lIeady all automatic or seml·auto· mutlc In nature.

CallS In whIc h the milk Is hauled nl'C wltshed and sterUlzed Iu. a mao chine which takes the can a.nd car, I'Ic8 It through seven distinct oJl9ra· tlons wltb not a Single touch by an ll.ttBndant. Both the can and Ild are wl1shed, sLerlllzed, and dried, and th e ca n sent out on a. long l'ack to await loading on tho trucks.

The Iowa. City Ice company which now occupies part at tho building will continue In the prescnt 10caUon, Offices at both companies wHl be together although there are two dis· tinct firms represented.
