' Now comes the payoff. The other day the senate passed a foreign aid bill, and Included in the bill was a little sum of $100 million requested by President Eisenhower for aid to the Congo. We wonder how many others feel as we do. We heartily object to seeing any taxpayers' - — - „ .-_. , ( ,. funds earmarked for such questionable use. One we would like to remind the fdrgetful that..if it hundred million may not seem like much in ' '"~ ""'•—-•-Washington, but from where we sit it could be used to far better advantage in our own country. ..',,* * .* SYSTEM OUT OF DATE? Since the two national conventions, there has been a great deal of discussion on the subject of nominating conventions. > The advent of T-V and its extensive coverage of conventions has tended to make the affairs a spectacle based almost entirely on how things will appear or look to the viewing audience. The circus aspect, the ham acting and the phony setups^which are bound to result, have detracted to a great degree from the former value of such conventions. It has been suggested that a national primary election be conducted which would determine what candidate in each party is the nominee. This'would be merely conducting cr primary on a national scale comparable to the state primaries in which candidates for the U. S. Senate and for govern6r are selected by each party. The candidate in each party getting-the most votes would be the parry's nominee .for 'president; The system of "electors" would be abolished. The electors are a hangover from the days when telegraph 1 and radio did not exist. The "electbrs" rode horseback to the early-day .national capitals ahd turned in the results of their states, This sometimes took several weeks or more after the election; the results were not known the next morning. The state electors to- day seem to be a useless nuisance. Probably there is much wrong with this idea, but it is worth a thought. . Possibly national conventions, too,, are as out of date as" the state electors. • £7- jL»i~ y * * *''•'' Something for young people Riceville Recorder: In a small town such as Riceville, it's usually difficult to find something for our young people to do. * * * If Mrs Jack Kennedy ever occupies the White House, we will for the first time have 'a First Lady who ccm speak five languages — English, French, Spanish, Italian and Baby Talk. had not been for Goverrtor Loveless, thS of Iowa would nOW be paying 3 percent Spies tax, or maybe more. It was only/a, fey/ shcjrt years ago that the gubernatorial battle centered on whether the sales tax in Iowa should be raised or kept at 2 percent. Loveless said he would keep it at 2 percent; Bill Murray said he favored raisihcj it to 3 percent, the Republicans likewise made dire predictions as to what would happen to Iowa if the tax was not raised. Loveless won, the tax was not raised, and today We have replenished the resources in the state treasury which were hitting rock bottom when he 'became governor.

Today the motels offer services that even the wealthy do not have in their homes. Most motels were built near the approaches to towns and cities.

But many die because they cart't attract enough customers who are willing to pay the high prices 'charged. We believe that motels ore getting too fancy and that the average tourist is more interested in a clean, quiet room, with a good bed; and a nearby good eating place. After a long day's drive more tourists want good food and quiet rest, and, of course, courteous service. Entered as second class matter at the postofflce at Algona.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST Grundy Register — The first statewide poll in this campaign reported by the Des Moines Register shows Iowa farmers favor Kennedy over Nixon for president, and Loveless over Miller for United States Senator. In the poll 4fJ per cent of the farmers favored Kennedy as against 45 per cent for Nixon. Kennedy was low in the towns and cities of the state. McManus, the democratic candidate for governor, trailed Erbe, the republican- candidate, in both the towns and on the farms. For United States Senator there was a wide spread between Governor Loveless, the democratic candidate for U. S. Senator, and Jack Miller from Sioux City. The poll gave Loveless 51 per cent, of the votes and Miller but 40''. Loveless ran strongest among the farmers where he received 58% of the votes to 36 per cent for Miller. The first poll shows a close race in Iowa for president, a favorable showing for governor by the republicans, and a decidedly long lead for Governor Loveless for United States Senator. It looks like a very interesting election in Iowa. Predicted close races always help to bring out a good Vote. * * * It took a "Letter to the Editor" in a state paper to disclose the fact that lov/a's Senator Tom Martin will be on a leave of absence from the U.S. Senate for the rest of this year and will miss all remaining Senate sessions. He is now in Europe with his wife as a member of the Battle Monument Commission. Which means that in the U.S. Senate for the balance of thi? year Iowa is only half represented! true.
