4-Alflono (la.) Upper Det MeinM Tuesday, Nov. 22, 1960 DEMOCRATIC SHAKEUP As often happens when business slumps, or a political party loses, the state Democratic party is undergoing a shokeup. A new state chairman has been selected. Duke Norberg, former Albia newspaperman, is being replaced by Lex Hawkins, Des Moines attorney. The state Democratic party has its weaknesses, but they are not all Norberg's fault. There was an unfortunate division of effort in the last election in fund-raising, and in candidate support. The duplications of effort hurt in the fund raising, and they weakened the state ticket on the campaign trail. But the fault was certainly not that of the state chairman to a complete degree. Each of several strong candidates built his own organization, independent of others. The coordination of effort between groups was lost, and the party as a whole suffered. In most counties of the state the courthouse level, strongly Republican, gave that party o solid springboard of support. None of us can deny, either, that the Democratic party faced a considerable amount of whispering opposition, all based on one subject. No state chairman could do much to cope with this type of opposition. We" suspect the Democratic party, despite its defeat in Iowa, is here to stay. Those of us with Democratic leanings would of course have liked to win; but we lost on the state level, and we accept defeat graciously. The,,party would also do well to not let opposition papers involve it in a "let's you and him fight" situation. There will, we hope, always be other el- Dctions. and the wine of victory is always more pleasant after tasting defeat. Two-party government is the backbone of our democracy, the balance wheel of a republic. Iowa needs the. two-party system badly, and it is up to present and future Democratic leadership to see that lowans always have a choice on the ballot. * * * NOW TO MAKE GOOD Grundy Register — The winning candidates and the winning party now have their job cut out out for them to live up to the promises that were made during the campaign. The voters are used to taking these promises at a small discount dnd they will be satisfied if from 80 to 90% of the promises are carried put. ; , €TRICTLX BUSINESS MAKE THE BEST OF IT The Eagle Grove Eagle had some comments, last week, on the recent suggestion that Webster City high school go find itself another conference in which to comp-ste, allowing the present North Central Conference group to acquire a new member closer to the population size of the remaining seven — and presumably easier to cope with in athletics. The Eagle thinks the idea is all wet. They grant that Webster City has been riding the crest of a victory wave, but they foresee changes in the future. The Eagle suggests that the other schools just get down to business and produce better teams. The only really surprising thing about the discussion is the discovery that Algona ranks sixth out of eight in the conference in average daily high school attendance in 1959. A great many Algonans were undoubtedly under the impression that Algona was one of the schools with larger attendance in the conference. Such is not the case. Here is the breakdown of average daily attendance for 1959 in the conference high high schools: Webster City, 681 (3-year-class); Clear Lake, 429; Iowa Falls, 423; Humboldt, 418; Eagle Grove, 411; Algona, 355; Clarion, 319; Hampton, 298. The Webster City total includes only sophomores, juniors and seniors. The rest include all four school classes. It must be granted that Webster City's enroljment far exceeds that of its conference opponents. And whereas Algona used to be the second largest school in the conference, it is now sixth in attendance. Yes, substituting someone else for Webster City would perhaps help the won and lost column, but there is np indication from any official source that such will happen, unless Webster City of its own accord should desire a change. * * * TRYING TO HELP THE ALCOHOLIC Sac City Sun — The alcoholic individual is suffering from a disease that is difficult to cure. It is an economic, a moral and a social problem which has never yet been solved. There are between 45,000 and 5b,000 alcoholics within the state of Iowa who are receiving no care whatsoever. It is estimated that at least five times this number are effected directly by this condition, most of whom are members of the imme- 'diate family.

SMITH, Foreman NATIONAL EDITORIAL forms of lawlessness, which result fronvthis number of alcoholics, amounts to more than twenty five million dollars each »year in Iowa alone. These are facts known to those who care. More than 100 people most of whom are members of the Governor's Commission on Alcoholism in Iowa gathered at the state capital building to discuss what should be done about this important matter. The delegates represented practically every walk of life, including numerous boards on the state level, organizations and individuals who are interested. The Governor introduced the subject and declared that doctors and peace officials regard it as one of the major problems which confront the state in maintaining law and order. Various plans were suggested and numerous suggestions were made, and it is possible that from this discussion, some action will be taken. It is likely that a committee will be named to draw up recommendations which will be presented to the Legislature for action when it convenes next year. Everyone agrees that something should be done to help these unfortunates who are suffering from this disease which has them in its grip. The time has come to cease shunning the alcoholic, and instead to offer him a helping hand. It is hoped that this Commission will accomplish .its goal. *' * * Secy, of Agriculture Benson, kept pretty wejl in the background and even out of the country in pre-election days, bounced right back into the news Wednesday.
