w MiMI Tt r 1 / .) Upp*f D« jftstnt* Thursday, Jima 11, 1959 et ties (Homes KOSSUTH AMONG TOP 100 Kossofh county has been named among the top 100 counties in the nation in a rating indicating economic well being. the rating was made by Sales Management magaidne ih its 1959 "Survey of Buying Power." Iowa's five largest cities and 79 of its 99 counties are among the nation's leaders in one or more category. f Iowa ranks third in the nation, behind California and Texas, in total value of farm products sold in 1958. Kossuth is one of 11 Iowa counties in the top 100 in farm products. Pottawattamie county headed the Iowa list with the largest total Value of farm products. Sioux was second, and Kossuth county was third. No exact definition is given in the magazine of what "economic well being" is presumed to mean. We do know, however, that even though many things may be challenged in connection with the way agriculture is and has been handled, we are still comparatively fortunate that we do live in so productive an area and Where the smiles of Mather Nature are so often welcomed. A GOOD QUESTION ! The Manning ^onitor editor, evidently after attending a high school graduation exercise, came up with this question: "Will a commencement speaker ever be heard to warn graduates that they'll have to work for a living?" It is a good question. ' . Some brave soul quoted in the press recently went a step farther and suggested that the commencement speakers be dropped by the wayside, and that graduation become' a meeting between students and their parents, with the superintendent or school board president casually passing out the diplomas at an appropriate time during the social event. This suggestion may be based on the fact mat in the senior year the school activities are such that parents and their senior children do not too often see each other. Anyway- this^s^estiOn^ha^^Lfse^co^ siderable stir, especially from those who have endured the usual run of commencement addresses — and wondered why! But to get back to the question asked by the Manning editor,,wq do hope that along,-with the platitudes to be expected, and the ivory tower approach,so often -used af commencement, the average graduate does have enough good sense to realize that along with the diploma, t a little honest and sincere work always v h,elps one to, get ahead in the world. -,, , i *, * * *•• Waterloo Courier: — The best and safest driv- ers.sometimes .lose control of their, autos because of installments! a Dipper PVS -^ at E.

DEBT LARGER THAN COMBINED DEBT OF ALL OTHER COUNTRIES Grundy Center Register — "The United Stales National Debt of 283 billion dollars is larger than the national debt ol all other countries combined." That statement is made by a Citizen Committee on Foreign Aid headed by an industrialist from Milwaukee. It urges that the President's request for four billion dollars for foreign aid be reduced by one-half and thereafter lowered for the coming three years, after which it should be eliminated entirely. The committee urges that till foreign aid should be discontinued at once to eoun» tries that are hostile to our form of government. The committee points out that the gold reserve of the United Stales stood at 22 billion, 900 million dollars til the beginning of 1958. During the last year, foreign countries took 2 billion, 260 million of it. The gold slock reduction menaces the economy. "Since 1950, dollar deposits ih this country by foreign governmental agencies have increased \ from.,3 billion.OOO million dollars to 8 billion, 700 million dollars," the report continued. In addition, foreign individuals and foreign banks now have dollar deposits in our banks of 5 billion, 800 million dollars. This total of 14 billion, 500 million dollars in foreign holdings is convertible into gold upon demand of the holders. In other words 70 percent of our gold reserve is subject to foreign demand." • . ' Opposition is coming from people all over our country to slow down on sending financial aid to foreign countries, some of which are better off than we ore." 1 The upwards of 60 billion dollars our government has been sending away to foreign countries to spend has done much to bring on inflation and the devaluation of our dollar. * * * DOUBLE STANDARD?

BbHANNON 6 N/Dodge" ' Gt 4-4443 ' ' > * -"** WANT ADS BRING RESULTS r6 ' , n« rite's'- of .those Involved even if. we could, -there are two angles to this matter which do not seem just to us. ' In the firsWplace, the University in a public statement, on the matter, said: "The names of the five students will not be released in keeping with student personnel policy." This, of course, is a personal protection to some extent to the five involved, but what about the others, perfectly innocent, who will come under suspicion and doubt in the minds of many, of the public, because the names are not known? Moreover, we can well imagine that the entire studenl body at Iowa, City will know sooner or later, by the, notable absence of the five, who they were, so as far as secrecy is concerned there , will be practically none at the University itself. But even more significant than this relatively, , unimporUint, aspect, is the attitude of the public authorities. Following an investigation by County Attorney NeuziL'tmd State Agent Strand, Neuzil said no criminal charges would be filed because there "wasn't sufficient evidence." This in face of the fact' that the 18-year old freshman girl involved signed' a statement thai she was criminally assaulted. It would appear to us, isolaled as we are frorn_ the complele facts, that there- is an inconsist- "ency here. In the first place if evidence was strong enough to justify '-the expulsion and disgrace of the students,,, why wasn't. that evidence strong enough for the civil 'authorities to a'ct on it? Or, on the other hand if the evidence was not conclusive enough for the police, why was it strong enough for the University?. Also, why. does .the. University think it is justified in operating as a power .unto itself in such mailers? If justice would demand that five •young people, hot university studtmts, pay the penally of Ihe law, why should the five, just because they are university students, be exempt? Is there a double standard in such matters? * , * * HOME NOT ONE'S 'CASTLE' Camdem (S.C.) Chronicle — A man's home is no. longer his castle in the sense that he may enjoy exclusive privacy after the fruits of his labors. The Supreme Court 'has so ruled. The nine men who call Ihemselves "chief justices" have decreed that public health officials may, at any time, open the doors of your home for inspection whether you like it or nol. They need no longer take the few minutes it requires to obtain a search warrant. And so another American heritage has fallen before the dictates of a small group of men who appear determined to rewrite the Const i'tution and, upsel the laws, social laws included, which have served so well since the beginning of our country. — Camdem (S.C.)
