KENNEDY'S GREA'l iKIUMPH.
One of the greatest political and personal
triumphs recorded as a result of the congres
sional elections of Tuesday was the re-election
of Charles A. Kennedy of the first Iowa dis
trict, by a majority of six thousand, two hun
dred and thirty-two. This tribute to the
worth of the official services of Mr. Kennedy
is a badge of honor fashioned out of the metal
of appreciation, and was deserved. For years
this congressman has represented the first
district with ability and faithfulness. As rank
ing member of the house committee on rivers
and harbors ho should properly be made its
chairman, provi led, as now seems possible,
the republicans will be in a majority in that
body. Thus with an extension of activity in
a territory that includes the great Mississippi
valley, Mr. Kennedy will be in a position to do
additional effective work for his immediate
ormstituents and the country at large.

IOWA PRESS COMMENT,
Burlington Hawk-Eye: It is hard to
make the average man believe in
these tales of marvelous prosperity,
when he has to pay double for every
thing that he needs and has had no
corresponding increase in his income.
It-may be possible to convince him
of many other things, but when his
pocketbook is touched In such a
manner, there is neyer a doubt in
his mind that "There is something
rotten in the state of Denmark."
Marshalltown Times-Republican:
The next thing on the program is
Thanksgiving. By that time we'll all
have recovered sufficiently to sit up
and take nourishment.
Sioux City Journal: That much ad
vertised carlo .d of Argentine corn got
lost somewhere along th? rc.vl, and
arrived in Psoria only the uay before
election. Under the well known anti
roorback rule the importfi nuobins
accordingly were not eligible for
serious consideration as a campaign
argument.
Ottumwa Courier: Well, at any
rate, the campaign is all over now
and a great many of us had better
buckle down to work again. A hard,
long winter is ahoad of us and if the
war should ceasj suddenly—look out.
Des Moines Tribune: Apparently
the Mexican joint commission can
see no need of hurrying the negotia
tions so long as the two governments
concerned are paying the hotel I,ills.
Cedar Rapids Gazette: The7 other
day two big eastern companies con
summated the sale to Russia of f7,
500,000 wcrth of sole leather. At
once the American market price on
hemlock leather jumped again, this
timet from forty-two to forty-six cents
a pound. This is an instance that is
conclusive of the war's actual influ
ence on prices here, but the ordinary
Iowan wants information as to just
how such a sale increases his pros
perity if it makes him pay fifty cents
more for a pair ot shoes.
Council Blutts Nonpareil: It will be
possible now, no doubt, for the foot
ball players to get a little attent on
from the general public.
Des Moines Capital: The next t.wo
years lis going to mean much to
Iowa. The states around us are pro
gressing rapidly in the -things that
go to make better homes, better
schools, and a happy, prosperous
people. Iowa has never faltered in
the face of competition. It does not
propose to do so now.
Lowden and Harding.
Burlington Hawk-Rye: The two big
figures that have come out of the dust
and din and smoke of the political
battle, to take prominent place In the
view of the whole middle west, are
Frank O. Lowden and W. L. Harding.
Both. Iowans. Both ran for the posi
tion of governor of their respective
states. Both went out, talked to the
people to such a degree, that they
rah far ahead of the presidential can
didate. Mr. Harding was fought by a
faction of his own party, which had
enlisted a nurnHDer of the papers and
other interests and it appears as if
that fight had done him more good
than harm. Mr. Lowden was opposed
by the present incumbent, who is gen
erally conceded to be an astute poli
tician and a good governor of his
state.
In the case of both Lowden and
Harding, it is generally taken for
granted, that the governorship, while
by no means unimportant, is not the
end to which these men are tending,
the great goal toward which they are
,, moving, lies higher up. It is a place

It is an easy question, isn't it?
Yet the answer to this ques
tion is the answer to the low
price of the Studebaker SIX.
It is the answer of, "How can
Studebaker build a car from
$250 to $400 less than any other
manufacturer?"
And Studebaker builds more
than 93% of its cars in its
own factories. It builds its
own motors complete, the
castings and drop forgings,
gears it builds its own bodies
—paints and upholsters them,
even makes its own cushions
it makes all the hundreds ot
small parts that go into the
car it makes its own rear
axles, complete it makes its
own front axles it even has
its electrical system made ex
clusively for Studebaker.
Does this mean economy?...
It must when you consider
that all the raw material is
bought in the enormous lots
necessary for a yearly produc
tion of 100,000 cars.

What to Do for Eczema
Greasy salves and ointments should
not be applied if good clear skin is
wanted. From any druggist for 25c or
$1.00 for extra large size, get a bottle
of zemo. When applied as directed, it
effectively removes eczema, quickly
stops itching, and heals skin troubles,
also sores, burns, wounds and chafing.
It penetrates, cleanses and soothes.
Zemo is a dean, dependable and inex
pensive, penetrating, antiseptic liquid.
Try it, as we believe nothing ycrn have
ever used is as effective and satisfying.

Al Jennings' Ambition.
Sioux City Journal? Al Jennings,
former Oklahoma outlaw, now an
evangelist, who ran for the democratic
I nomination for governor in 1914 and
was defeated, has announced his In
tention to run for the nomination in
1918. If Jennings wants to be gover
nor because he thinks he would make
a good official, or because he believes
his services to his state entitle him
to it, there can be no reasonable ob
jection to his entering the race. If he
Is running on the strength of his no
toriety as a reformed outlaw, or be
cause. being a reformed outlaw and a
revivalist, his political activity may in
crease the demands for his services as
an evangelist, he would better stay
out.
That Jennings, after being a "bad
man" for a number of years, reform
ed is altogether to his credit. But
the scriptural saying relative to the
rejoicing in heaven over the repent
ance of sinners doesn't imply that the
repentance gives the former sinner a
tallhold on a good political Job, es
pecially If a number of Just men who
have never been found out are seek
ing the same office.
Sioux City has the official word ot
the food and dairy commission for the
assertion that a general cleanup of
food and fluid foundries would mater

spector reports Insanitary conditions

But the public has recognized
the value and quality of Stude
baker cars because they have
placed their orders for more
7-passenger Studebaker
cars than they have for any
other seven-passenger car in
the same time before, and
Studebaker has sold and deliv
ered more 7-passenger SIXES
and more 7-passenger FOURS
in the last fourteen months than
have ever been sold and delivered
by any other manufacturer in the
world in the same length of time.
The best argument for the
Studebaker car is orders of
the people of the United States
for more Studebaker cars._
