This young man from the West'has lately carried the states of Wisconsin and Nebraska by flattering majorities in the face of Strong" campaigns by Geni MacArthur, favorite son In Wisconsin, now in Japan, Gov. Dewey of .New York and Sen. Robt. Taft of Ohio. It is now thought by some'of the.leaders that Gov. Dewey, notwithstanding the 90 votes he is assured of in New York, will not be able to win and the fight W,ill be made by Stassen against Sen. Taft. Taft is:supposed to be the conservative candidate and Stassen the liberal. •. In case that this is true, it would seem to this writer • that Stassen would be pretty sure of the nomination unless the other candidates were able . to-combine to oppose him, which is considered unlikely. of a deadlock after a few votes, if sfomeone should get up and yell "Ike" in a strong vojcft th.ei'e would be a rush of delegates and Gen. Eisenhower would be nominated unanimously. It is'•'thought b'y many that the people are getting tired?pf-being pushed around by political "bosses" dhd'"'"leaders" and are ready to take the reins in their 'own' hands. However, it is considered that wjthput exception all of the republican candidates areiable ! and honest men. The oldest tj •iVandenberg, is perhaps .

It will be remembered 1 that'Hoover was defeated for re-election by the New Dealers and Harry Hopkins made the re- marlt that the^ new administration was going to ''bqrjfow and :spend"and spend and lend and lend" which ihas; been going on ever since. Men like Hooye'r and Jack Garner have long been shifted to the background and cheap mpney now flows like- 'water. Times have indeed changed. —J.W.H, ! CAN WE UY THIS TO ROOSEVELT? In these days when we are constantly being solicited for contributions to many charities, com- Tnunity chests whereby we include sixteen or eighteen gifts to various suppossidly worthy 'char- itiesj many, or at least some, of which we have neve} 1 heard of and care nothing shout, we cannot be bjame'd if occasionally someone voices his be- wildfrmenV and lack of enthusiasm for the. con* inf call on' him for more and more funds for so ajiy projects, many of which we may regard ^ »Uly.

Jinl Allen was in favor of just giving' the Reeses a cup of coffee arid Jess Hill was in favor of that because on account of the Reese* didn't use cream and sugar and the party wouldn't cost so much. Bill Dau said he was willing to 1 kick in a buck. because on account of it would be nice not having to hear the rattle bang of the Reese jaloppe passing 'his place early morning and all hours of the night, so to speak. Mr. Wendell suggested that maybe a charge could be, trumped Up against me and I could be hailed into Judge Johnston's court and a fine could be hitched to me and then Wayne Riddle and John' Wheelock and J. P. Smith could So my bonds and so the South Dodgers would be under no oblU gations to. give the Reeses a so- long party. • But Deputy Lindhorst and Chief of Police Cecil McGIhnis were opposed to this and they said I hadn't stolen any horses'or chickens while I lived on South Dodge so they couldn't pinch me, hence a so-long feed would be in line. And so it is that the South Dodgers, my neighbors for six months, are going to pull a big so-long party for me at 8 bells next week. And ot course a feed like that will cut down on, my grocery bill for the week.
