OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSYAPER PRICE FIXING A recent decision of the United States supreme court greatly strengthens the NRA inasmuch as it sustains the practice of price fixing by states, and inherently by the gen- eral government. This decision much heartens the contend- ers for fixing the price of wheat and other farm products as an emergency measure, and is viewed with praise or alarm the various sections of our country. In speaking of the de- cision the Literary Digest says: "The jingle of eighteen cents on the counter of an obscure grocery in Rochester, New York, one day last April was echoed last week in the Supreme Court of the United States, in booming headlines, in reams of editorials. Out of that trival purchase of two quarts of milk lms come another mighty #Jlar for the New Deal. " I Leo Nebbia sold the milk to Jedo Del Signore for eigh-l teen cents Aad threw in a fi~ e-cent loaf of bread. He was l fined five dollars for disobeying the ruling of the New York I Milk Control Board which fixed the minimum price of milk at l nine cents a quart. He had violated a law passed by the Leg- I islature to protect an industry in the interest of the public! welfare. "Affirming the judgment by another five-to-four de- cision, the Supreme Court, in an opinion written by Justice Roberts and concurred in by Chief Justice Hughes and Jus- flees Brandeis, Stone and Cardozo, held that "the Constitu- does not secure to any one liberty to conduct his busi- ne~ in such fashion as to inflict injury upon the public at large, or upon any substantial group of the people." "Joining with Justice McReynolds, who wrote the min- ority opinion, Justices Sutherland, Van Devanter and Butler asserted that 'the Legislature can not lawfully destroy guar- anteed rights of one man with the prime purpose of enrich- ing another even if for the moment this may seem advan- tageous to the public.' "But the majority, as in the Minnesota mortgage mora- torium case, held that the public good was paramount in time of emergency." It is to be regretted that momentuous decisions like this, and the Minnesota moratorium case, are made by a court so evenly divided, for the death of one judge and appointment of another may reverse the court. This in no way would make a satisfactory conclusion. But, whichever way one may look at it, such court decisions but scantily clear the sit- ~uation, but in them can be seen a ~hittling of the constitu- tion m other than a constitutional way. As far as we are concerned out here in the great fields of agriculture, the decision seems to pave the way for na- tional price fixing for farm products, which would not be an imitigated evil inasmuch as the NRA has already compelled price fixing in the industries. While many of us may be opposed to price fixing as a principle, if there is any good in it for industrialists, we want at least a few of the "crumbs that fall from the rich man's table." STANDING IN THEIR OWN LIGHT An illustration of the injury that towns may do them- selves by "family squabbles" when striving for public im- provements, especially when the cost of those improvements can be shared with the federal or state governments, is shown at Fargo. The half million dollar sewer project there has been held up for many months and the federal contribu- tion endangered by the battling of the people over the loca- tion of the plant. And the new bridges over the Red River between Fargo and Moorhead are another instance of the same kind. In both instances the town, we understand has been served with notice that it must drop the row and cut bait or there will be no fishing. Similar troubles exist all over the country and many millions of dollars of public improvements, planned through government aid, may lose out on that aid because of the petty local jealousies and quibbling over minor matters. Uncle Sam is getting tired of waiting, as he wants action at once to give work to unemployed, and many of these allocations of federal money are expected to be cancelled unless building work is begun. Any town that would rather squabble than be aided in public enterprizes deserves to stand still, as many of them are doing. TIME TO GET TOGETHER It is time the people of this county considered who they want to represent them in the legislature. This county is one of four in the legislative district and therefore has an interest in the three members of the House who are to be elected this year. If the people go to sleep at the switch the Langer forces are going to put up the candidates by one sys- tem or another, as control of the legislature is a mighty es- sential thing to the political machine now in control. We would suggest that all those who oppose the present regime get together and work in a common cause. Of course this sounds like advancing a dream of unity on anything be- tween the old parties or factions, but the time is at hand when the forces of popular government must unite or, by their pulling and hauling over old prejudices, they will allow a small organized minority of machine forces to put them to route and more solidly entrench the present regime, provid- ing it wins in the primary. The legislators now in office are mostly henchmen of the governor, beneficiaries of his grant of offices. Let us get to- gether and name men whose first interest lies with those who elect them rather than with the state political ring. NEW LIQUOR LAW Petitions are being circulated for still another hard liquor sale law, the parties behind the new movement not.be- ing satisfied with the "close corporation" features of the first petition and with the creation of a seconci booze commission- er with all its attendant expenses and openness for political spending as has been shown up by the operation of the beer commissioner. Like the other petition the expenses are cur- tailed for the head push-who will operate the law if it is en- acted, but the proposed law gives about everybody a chance to get into the retail trade, beer parlors and all. If sufficient signatures are obtained both the proposals will be submitted to the voters and the one having the great- est number of affirmative votes will become the law, if ap- proved. The new proposal prdvides that fifty percent of the receipts from licenses for the sale of beer or hard liquor shall of the state, after administration and deducted, which will very material- L seem better if the help source. FREEDOM OF THE BALLOT An illustration of what men will do when left to their own free will and what they do under the pressure of others was shown at a recent political convention in this state. An informal ballot was taken on a number of candidates whose names were displayed on a blackboard. The result showed one mnn leading his nearest competitor by three votes. In this ballot each delegate voted his own free conviction. On the formal ballot that followed, and after the friends of the second highest man had a chance to talk to the delegates, the second place man lead the former high man by quite a mar- gin and won the prize. While we declaim much about the freedom of the ballot, it is seldom free in a convention, and results are obtained, not by the untrammeled expression of the voter, but all too often, as in this case, by the influence of others most inter- ested in results. TREATY DEFEATED It is a great disappointmer~t to the people of the North- west that the senate refused to approve the St. Lawrence waterway treaty. This was defeated through the selfishness of other sections now enjoying nearness to the sea for their exports or for one reason or another, not the least being the great power and electrical syndicates that would be affected by the power and utility features generated by the dams on the St. Lawrence river, whose lower rates would compete with syndicates. We agree with the president that the ship canal will be built eventually by Canada, but any rates that may accrue from electrical power we may get will be at the price offered by our neighbor. The speedy building of the canal would mean a great deal to this Northwest, not only in cheaper grain rates eastward, but in freight shipments from the east. THIN SKINNED LEGISLATORS The Kentucky legislature takes itself entirely too ser- iously when it jails an assistant editor of the Louisville Cour- ier-Journal because he refused to divulge the name of the party who wrote, and the paper published, "The Psalm of Politics," which caricatured the legislature. Now these swelled up bumpkins have asked the president to recall the editor of the Courier-Journal, who is ambassador to London, unless he tells who lampooned the legislators. We don't know the inner merits of this case, but as a general rule legislators have plenty of lampooning due them. It's a cheap skate politician who cannot stand up under Am- erican criticism of his actions. And, how come, that election to the legislature makes a man any better than anybody else, or the folks back home, whom he is supposed to represent ? As a rule the louder the howl over criticism, the more de- served the criticism is. In some quarters it is reported that the entire Langer state ticket may be filed in the Democratic column this year, which would be another exposition of the old maxim: "Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad." Heretofore the governor has added another "100 percent" to his many 100 percent by announcing his Republicianism at that stan- dard, but of course, even governors have been known to change their minds. To the great majority of Republicans, who are such on principle and not for office, such a migration to the ranks of the "Unterrified" would be hailed with great satisfaction, but it would cause us to stop long enough to "shed a tear" for the Democrats. A lot of fellows in congress do not seem to realize that once a bunch of government obligations have been paid in paper money of the fiat order it is very easy to drift into the habit of issuing that kind of money every time a bit of pres- sure comes along. The first batch may go over easily be- cause of extreme faith in the government, but with every subsequent issue the depreciation sets in at a ratio that is heart breaking. Europe has given sufficient evidence of the fallacy of turning the printing presses loose, but some people think they can go through the ordeal of fire and not get burnt. The first defection from the Valley City-Langer conven- tion comes from Harold Hopton, nominee for insurance com- missioner. Mr. Hopton says he will be a candidate for the commissionership but on the Democratic ticket instead of the Republican. Does Mr. Hopton think the Democratic tic- ket is a safer bet than the Republican ? Or is he merely de- serting a sinking ship ? Many towns in the state are going ahead in plans for municipial buildings, water plants, etc., just as though the word had not been set out that all the federal appropriation for helping such projects had been allotted. The impression is general that before long money will be available for such projects. Vote "yes" on the bonding proposition April 2. The silver fellows are kicking because Uncle Sam does not elevate silver to the glories of gold coinage and buy more of the metal. What in tunket does Uncle want with a strong room full of silver bars when he already has most of the gold in the world stacked up at Washington and in the mints. Views OiThe Press WOMAN'S CHARM Christian Science Monitor: A University of Michigan mixed jury decides two to one that a woman's charm is in inverse ratio to her size. Three male debaters exhibit drawings in arguing that a coed with large mouth, large ears or ov- er-ample proportons simply cannot mine whether the cause of one's fail- ure is due to poor land or poor ~axming. To assume the respon- sibility of moving a farmer, his fam- ily and his belongings from the place he called home, only to find that he can't make a living on good land is a serious undertaking. l~arming has been a particularly precarious business for the past dozen' years, what with unsettled prices, and vagaries of the weather to say nothing of grasshoppers and make powerful appeal to masculine other pests and plant and animal fancy, and the judges waver and disease.

WHY SO MUCH OF IT Daily Missoulian: Dr. Harry Soderman, European criminologist and an exponent of science in the detection of crime who is in New York to act as instructor and lec- turer for the city's detective force, blandly explains why crime is so much less prevalent in Europe than it is in this country.
