Angle, Shelton Journal V The lessons and echoes of the World War have long since passed from mind and America has been sleeping in blissful ignorance of the dangers of the 3new Cycle of War and the menace it brings to the 1 people. against the now obvious dangers from without and from Within. “God Bless America,”—“G0d Save America. TIME TO CAN POLITICS I , , Now that President Roosevelt has been installed :‘for his third term it is to be hoped that his attention I will be devoted to “canning” the politics and talk, to signs point as ahead. So far, none would pretendl that our people are sacrificing anything or changed the tempo of their lives, and when the issue comesl there will he need for a lot of “reforming” in puinCI as well as private life.

' l , It is realized by all elected officials that the less , lfriction the better the results both in legislation and: lin’ administration of state offices and departments,l land Governor Langlie' is showing at the outset the; desire to carry on, state affairs in peace andhar- lmony, if permitted. _ . The state starts the new term with a deficit of faround five and a half millions, which might not be- so bad if the federal government was not also far in the “_red;” but Governor Langlie will keep an eye out; i duplicated effort, and in dile time adopt some re- forms which may hurt a few but will please many.
