l~Alf*fll (**) t*ft«r D« MolftM Tuesday, July 19, 1960 hi* I i f ' 1 A NOTHING NON-PARTISAN HERE District Judge'Joseph P. Hand of Emmetsburg, d democrat appointed by Gov. Herschel Loveless to fill a- vacany, will have opposition on the election ballot in November for judge of the 14th judicial district. It is the result of a move on the part of some republican lawyers in the judicial district to overthrow a time-honored tradition among members of the bar. Election of district court judges in the past has usually come about without any particular party election fights or squabbles. There has never been a democrat elected to the bench in the judicial district. This is because, first of all, the lawyers themselves have generally speaking abstained from presenting candidates on both tickets. With the lawyers of the district prepond- erately republican, the unwritten agreement in the past has been to rotate the three district Judge positions as vacancies occur among the eight counties in the district — Buena Vista, Clay, Dickinson, Emmet, Humboldt, Kossuth, Pocahontas and Palo Alto. After the resignation of Judge Harry Narey, Mr Hand was appointed to fill the unexpired term. He is a'democrat, the first one to serve on the bench in the 14th judicial district. His own county, Palo Alto — and also the Bar Ass'n of Kossuth County, went on record as endorsing the candidacy of Judge Hand for reelection. Both of the other judges, G. W. Stillman of Algona and Fred M. Hudson of Pocahontas are republicans. In bygone years, no democratic nominees have been presented, not because there were no potential candidates, but because it was felt that for the best interests of the district courts an election battle should be avoided. But all that is now in the past. The district judgeships of the past have been kept above partisan politics. Democrats have agreed with that principle by making no nominations. But, when circumstances are altered and. a democrat is already • sitting on the bench for a short term and is the logical choice to succeed himself, the complexion changes. Non-partisanship goes out the window. Upper I)cs f f *111 E. Call Street—Ph.'

We have heard a lot in the past year with regard to property taxes and much about plans that would find some method of shifting taxes from property onto something else. Nobody seems quite clear just what else it would be shifted to. Yet, one of the most simple methods of controlling or reducing the property, tax would simply be to attend the budget hearings with enough of your neighbors to dent badly the always-present effort to raise budgets year by year. Before any budget is adopted, there must be a public hearing. THE PUBLIC HEARING IS THE TIME THAT EACH CITIZEN HAS A CHANCE TO CONTROL THE REAL ESTATE TAXES HE PAYS. It is about the only time, too. So, if you are really interested in your taxes, check the list of major hearings on budgets and find out what's going on, and why you are asked to pay more each year in taxes. * * • * ASK TO HAVE BENSON FIRED . . . Eagle Grove Eagle — We were pleased with one of the resolutions adopted by the Wright county Republicans at their convention Friday. They asked for the immediate dismissal of Ezra Toft Benson. That is one thing that the party better take care of before the general election in the fall if they want to have any chance in the middle west. We understand that Vice President Nixon has promised that there will be no Benson in cabinet if he is elected but he needs to make that plain before the campaign starts. He could also do himself good nation wide . if he would make the same announcement about Post Master General Summerfield. He is another thorn in the side of everyone who has to do with the postal service. | We call your attention to a feature article in this Eagle signed by The Business Mail Faurw. dation. It outlines the public conception of our mail service. Summerfield, either has, not read, it or else does not believe in it. - * * * LEMONADE FROM THIS LEMON? Faribault County Register — One significant and encouraging result of the U-2 spy plane uproar is the growing, sentiment" in Congress for a thorough-going shake-up and house-cleaning of our huge and bumbling Central Intelligence Agency—under the direction of a. new. chief, J. Edgar Hoover! The thinking on Capital Hill was most succinctly expressed, perhaps by, Congressman Wint Smith of Mankato, Kan., and reported by Human Events: "Fire Allen Dulles and replace him with the ablest man we have for that intelligence pob. I mean J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI." This is something, we would guess, that the folks back home wild go for, too. * * * A LITTLE ASHAMED? Jackson Baty in Osqge Press — "Senator Bourke Hickenlooper may think the government proceeded correctly in. the air espionage; case. But I'll wager that nine. out> of 1.0 of his fellow citizens feel more than a. little ashamed at our, government's false statements gnd, urvw.illirtgr ness to admit what we. all know to be tr.u£." the period was n plcesant 55 degrees July 16. Traces of rain were registered July 16, 17 and 2i. One man, W. H. Freeman, 79, retired railway mail cltjrk from Algona, became a victim of the heat when he dropped dead at his farm near Fenton. Several farm accidents were reported as the harvested season went on, despite the heat. The heat didn't warm the local market prices up much. Medium butcher hogs topped at $8; veal Arrival of a swarm of % bees calves, stock steers, fat steers on Algona's State street at suri- and fat yearlings brought $8; rise Monday proved interesting corn, 62 cents; oats, 22 cents; to local inhabitants for a while, barley, 32 cents; soybeans, 65 There was plenty of confusion, cents; eggs, 19 cents; cream, 29 according to reports. The swarm cents; hens, 11 cents; and ducks ; finally decided to settle on the 5 cents. roof of the Algona Bakery (which • maybe should have been called 'Bee-kcry') and made sudden flights toward the street from their fortress.

Fortunately, the bees were apparently friendly, for only scattered reports of persons being stung were received. One local bald- headed man was disgusted, however, after two of the stinger- bearing insects went for a free ride on his pate. He shooed them off, okay, but then had .a difficult time outrunning bee friends of the hitchhikers who had been summoned for support from the bakery roof. • • • Funeral services for J. F. Granzow, 84, Algona, widely known as a band master, were held Sunday afternoon in the Congregational church. Burial was a\. Rivcrview cemetery. Mr Granzow, who was survived by his wife, four children and two sis- third son and has been named Jeremy John. His maternal grandparents are Mr and Mrs Fred Ploeger,of Ledyard. The Duanc Thompson family of Sioux City visited recently at the home of Mrs George Thompson. Mr and Mrs D. B. Mayer are the grandparents of a baby girl born to their daughter, Barbara, Mrs Richard, Schmertzlcr. She has been named Sheryl Kay. Mrs Mayer is in New York helping to care for the new baby. Mrs J. F. Sullivan and Jeremiah went to Minneapolis Friday and brought back their grandson, Mark -Nehotte, to spend a week with his grandparents.
