Tlie Governor reported in a news conference that he didn't know whether or not any Teamster money came into his campaign and that he didn't know if any had been spent on his behalf. This should be lesson No. 1: Even if a man in politics is not handling his money directly, he ought to know who's supporting him. Political campaigns are not inexpensive items ! After all, it* still true: Who so eateth another 's bread will do the other's will! Secondly, the money that went into the Loveless campaign came from out-of-state sources. Such donations are illegal under Iowa law. This not only reflects very unfavorably upon the Governor s associates but in- drectly upon him. If one had been watching the papers even somewhat closely during the Senate labor rackets investigations, he cannot help but notice the lax—and crooked —handling of money in connection with Hoffa and hie plavmate, Dio. This paper therefore, registers its objection to the fact that a Governor of Iowa has been elected with funds from an organization controlled partly by Hoffa and these same funds put our Governor only one step away from New York racketeer Johnny Dio! Rep. Clark McNeaJ has announced that public hearings and public investigations of this sort will begin soon and the truth will be made known. The people certainly have a right to know. Besides reflecting upon the integrity of Loveless' STATE ORGANIZATIONS INCLUDED ANY TEAMSTER CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS IN THEIR FINANCIAL REPORTS FILED WITH THE SECRETARY OF STATE LAST FALL. Yet it has been proven that they received thern. Therefore, their reports did not contain the w -hole truth, but those filing certified that it did. That's lying! It will be interesting to see how those in executive authority wiggle their way out of this as they tried to when they attempted to get Highway commission money into the Democratic state campaign fund last April. Jn the light of this paper's political standing, be advised that we'd condemn any actions such as this, regardless of party—because they're wrong! CREEK-BOTTOM COMMENTS by Reuben We don't give a plugged nickel whether or not AFBF President, Charles Shuman is a registered Democrat. That is Charlie's personal choice and privilege. But when his public addresses are Eisenhower campaign material in essence, that is NOT politically non-partisan, posters & place- cards in the Farm Bureau booth at the Fair not with standing. • • « • The 4-H Club projects at the Fair were even "bigger and better" than ever. The variety of activities covered, embraces almost the whole scope of better and more successful farm life & living. We believe the 4 -H Clubs are the number one achievement] of the Farm Bureau, coming even before affiliated insurance, farm service, or legislature influence. • • • • At the Fanner's Union booth we noted the heavy type "headline" calling for INCREASED CONSUMPTION. We believe this a ridiculous avenue of approach toward solving the "farm Problem". Most of us need ever so much more industrial goods, but few of us .need more food. Most of us over-eat now. • • • • • The new "mobile stage" at the Fair was a splendid suce&s. The auto races were very well done, on the tricky triple-turn track. The night show* were very good, with pleasing variety of acts. We hope the Fair Board and the local farm machinery dealers can get' together in regard to ground rent and adequate police protection against vandalism. We farmers want the machinery back at the 1958 Fair. The condition of the men's rest room at this 1957 Fair was a small disgrace. Repairs and plumbing replacements are needed But the greatest need is a porter, who might find time between reaching for tips, to mop and deoderize the place. We are truly perplexed. Does the end fully justify the means? In fund raising activities for a worthy cause, should the Iowa anti-gambling laws be broken * the degree of compound frac lure?? Does the answer to these questions have definite relation ship to the religious sect of the sponsors???? The men get their faces on all the folding money, but the women get their hands on the most of it. COOT.

Bible Comment: / k Promises We Make In Times of Stress Are Soon Broken tYT'HEN the Jews were rebuilding their homeland after the period of captivity, there was • • rh note of patriotic fervor, despite constant enemy attack, oangere and privations. Under selfless, courageous and jrirp.red leader;,, the people built •A'lth vision. There were few '.ap:;er.. But 100 years after the return 'forr> exile, the people had learned so little from the experience that apostary arose. They •t.acl turned once again to care- e:;.. selfish and evil ways. The depth of their failure is ¥•-. icier:t in the intensity with .'I .ith the prophet Malachi re­ prover them. They had turned !:cirri the laws of God; they had robbed God in not yielding the titnei and offerings for the services of religion and for the bene- i,t of all. A curse rested upon the nation Arid yet a bo'jntiful and merciful. God was anxious to pour out His blessings upon the ;ieo;.ie "Prove me now here- w.th," Malachi represents Qod as i.ay.ng. "if J will not open you :he windows of heaven, end pour you out a blessing, that there •.hall not be room enough to receive it" Do not these words apply with equal vividness to our own time?

More trasiu — ur more gratifying, apcording to the way you look at it — is tho fact that the world's bjggest cenieti-ry would have had to be built to provide final resting places for the many thousands who would have been killed, had not the work of traffic engineers, automotive engineers, highway designers and e - < . .- r — l - ~ —.« -|,ui tjj xrl ITTV- tive. They concluded tJiat, although the highway accident Nitmitiori indeed is bleak, priinress is being math'. Ftuty thousnnd p>i- soiia were killwl lust year, but the number probably would have been twice as large had highway conditions been the same in 1950 as they were a decade ago. Modem highways move traffic faster, but there are fewer accidents on turnpikes, per vehicle, than t»U other! roads. Big reflective signs thut can be seen at night as well as in daylight, new headlights that give maximum visibility and minimum glare and elaborate street-lighting systems are being used to reduce the number of nighttime accidents. Although three times as many fatalities occur at night as during daylight, based on total travel, the rate undoubtedly would be far worse had not science and industry developed solutions to the problems of nighttime visibility. Cloverleaves, divided lanes wider pavements, more gradual curves, blow out-proof tires and seat belts are just some of the ininga being used in the daily battle against highway accidents, injuries and deaths. The highway accident situation is not solved, to be sure, but progre.-s is being made. You, when you get into the driver's .-(-at, have a lot of help from a lot of people trying to make driving safer for you. THANK NITE $100.
