2-Algoria (t£j UppMta Moln« Tuesday, Aug. 2, De$ mm KENNEDY VS. NIXON Rock Rapid* Reporter - Right now it looks like Mr Kennedy will be nominated- far the prest* dency about fhe timd ydu ar« reading this paper. He has b&eri pretty much In control of thihgs for the past several weeks and while there have been those who thought he could be stopped — most everyone who is realistic was! agreed that he couldn't be stopped. Kennedy won the nomination because he put on the bigger and better campaign. He went out and asked for votes — while Johnson/ Symington and Stevens, stayed home. It seems that It always pays to go out and ask for votes — If you want them. the Kennedy machine — and it is a machine — a very efficient, well-oiled, smoothly operating political machine, will now swing Into action <with its objective, selling Kennedy as the next president of the United States. * * - * i LET'S YOU AND HIM FIGHT- S , • (Exchange) "Almost every day somebody walks' Into your newspaper office and soys to the editor, let's you and him figKt.' "The object is to get the editor to exert the vaunted power of the press against a third *• party who has slighted, mistreated, ignored, cheated or in some other fashion done the dirt to the complainant. "The complainant, the man who rushes in and volunteers to hold the editor's coat, had rather not get involved, publicly. All he wants, he states, is for the paper to expose the miscreant as a doer of evil, deeds, a charlatan, a wife, beater,, a ticket fixer and orte not to be trusted-around maiden ladies. "But does the complainant offer to sign ti letter? Is he willing to be quoted Not him. Just tell the world in your own words what a stinker he is — say the information came from a highly - placed source—something like that. Don't use my name—I'd get a reputation of being loose-tongued. •"The editor clucks sympathetically over man's inhumanity to man. He insists, however, that authority for statements must be forthcoming. "Complainant thereupon assumes an attitude of outraged dignity, implying the newsman isn't interested in the best local news story in a decade, and should not be questionjpg ri aji informant of complainant's reputation."""Beyond that, complainant sayeth not." * * * This hope of the world for future peace may, strangely enough, rest on the possibility that two Communist giants, Russia and China, now seem to be having a difference of ideologies. Let us hope that it continues to differ, thus effecting a strange and unexpected counterbalance in world politics. tipper JDrs ill E. Call Street—Ph.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SPENDING \' Grundy Register — Voters will remember how the" Truman administrdtlon was chargec wlfh extravagance and waste of publle money Those charges served as fhe bdsis for the presidential campaign in 1952 when Dwlght Eisenhower was a candidate" for the first time. Voters will also remember Candidate Eisenhower's promise to bring more prosperity to the farmers anc to reduce federal expenditures. All farmers know they have shared less rather than more pros perlty during the past seVen years. The farmers and others know that the promise to reduce federal expenditures has as far fallen short as the prosperity of theAfarrriers. An editdrial writer for The Waterloo Courier in a late issue of that paper sums up the absurdity of the administration with its perform* 'arises when he says:' ' , "On June 30, 1959,.the fiscal year ended with the biggest peacetime.deficit in history — around $12.5 billion. The total six year Eisenhower DEFICIT at that date was $19.4 billion. The first six\years of the Truman administration showed d SURPLUS of $3.7 billion. When Truman departed the deficit totaled $267 billion - it has now grown to $284 billion. The cost of interest on the public debt during.Truman's last full fiscal year was $5.8 billion. Eisenhower has requested $8.6 billion for this same purpose for the fiscal year 1960. The spending policies of the Department of Agriculture graphically illustrate the Eisenhower administration's role in the" spiraling inflation. Secretary Benson promised reorganization and efficiency in the department when he assumed office. In the face of this promise the number of his departmental employes has increased from 67,406 as of Dec. 31, 1952, to 85,543 as of July 1, 1959 - an increase of 36.9%. The Department of Agriculture's 'expenditures 'from 1862 to 1953 totaled $27,6 billion. Since Benson took over he has spent $3-1 billion. This means that the present Republican Secretary of Agriculture has spent more than all his predecessors combined. • ' 'JobiW 'Atteiunir SAMIM-HI Ttmwo tra 1 WABU8HTS «WMt'»ACK ON HIOH MAM WHtN tHI Ottto OIIIVSRWOUIONT DIM H|il" Tht Trartfora Safety Stnkf ' AWafd'Wiftfte?a Bob dofisiditte of —. «-_ - "HeTSm ffeaaflne^efvlce and Ed flhef expehse. ffolliard Of'the' Washington Post.

Eagle Grove Eagle — Forty one men from 10 communities in North Central Iowa attended a meeting in Ames with engineer Harold Hanson who is making a survey of all roads and streets in Iowa for the legislature's highway study committee which is headed by State Senator:Cliff Nolan of lowarCity. , . •• The meetihg was called to have Mr Hanson explain why-his study is recommending that the new north-south super highway 35 be moved east of its original location. As first planned-and as it appears on current maps the big interstate follows a line that parallels Highway 69 on the east clear across the state. Engineer Hanson has suggested thai the new four lane highway start to veer east at Highway 20 until it approaches a location closer to Hampton and Mason City. Above Mason City it will start back west again to get around Albert Lea and the lake at Albert Lea. The 41 men from the 10 towns along 69 heard a nice long presentation of the study that had been made and the reason for shifting over away from Belmond and Forest City. Boiled down it said, "Mason City is the largest city in north central Iowa and there is a great desire for a route that goes from Mason City to Des Moines from that area." The fact that they are adding some 25 or 30 miles to the route from Kansas City to Minneapolis (the original purpose of the interstate) doesn't seem to make any difference. Just'how much will be added to the cost also seems unimportant compared to the convenience of both Des Moinos and Mason City. Engineer Hanson illustrated his talk with dozens of charts and maps. One of the maps purportedly showed the desire for travel between certain places. This map showed a desire to go from Mason City to Des Moines that was about 10 times as great as was the desire to go from Fort Dodge to Des Moines. Fort Dodge and Mason City are approximately the same size cities. And when someone challenged the statements or pictures that showed more Mason City people wanting to go to Des Moines than it did fort Dodge people with the same desire there Was no answer. You can form your own conclusions but we don't believe it either. The simple fact remains that Des Moines (particularly) wants a nice highway to bring Mason City people down there shopping instead of letting them go to Minneapolis where many are now going. And Mason City people want a nice highway to bring Des Moines people to the Clear Lake resort area instead of having them go to Okobojis where many are now going. During the Republican Convention, , the key 'speaker, Mr. udd of Minnesota, severely at- acked what he called a drawing [own of prestige of our country iy the Democratic party during he convention in Los Angeles. Mr. Judd quoted Senator 1 Kennedy's remark that we 'Were coming in second in the field ol defense. Judd stated that he felt Senator Kennedy was •' drawing down the prestige, of_our country by this remark. He also stated that the film shown during the Democratic convention - al so brought down the prestige of the country by showing the .slums and- defects that, have: taken place in our country in the past eight years. One of the problems bur country is facing is the problem bf lack of knowledge on the part of the citizens or the United States. Would Mr. Judd then prefer that we, the people of the Unite'd States are not enlighten- ed''^ 1 to what is going bn'in r 'thd country in which everyone is to play such an important part? Wouldn't it be better that we, aS citizens, know the problems of our country so mat we might share the responsibility as strong and free citizens? The Democratic party has told the people the grim' facts of where our country stands. These facts can be changed from grimness into a peaceful reality, but only if the people realize these facts and do something about them. To have action we time.
