Haggard Wallace No Financier Plenty of Iowa people question the appointment of Henry Wallace to head the reconstruction Finance Corporation and the handling o£ billions of dollars of lend-lease money so freely handed out by this government. Jesse Jones, n hard-headed Texas banker and financier, and a democrat, who has been given great credit for the wise handling of many billions of dollars of government money and credit during the dozen or more years he has been the head of the RCF and who has been asked to resign in favor of Wallace, has commanded the confidence of the country and it will be difficult to find anyone to take his place. Henry Wallace is an able and honest man, but his big heart and his well known tendency to socialism disqualifies him in the judgment of many as an official to control the finances of this country. As someone remarked the other day that Henry could give more money away to the starving Arabs, Greeks and other European countries who might be expected to form in the asking line, than any man in the universe. One of Henry's main failings in the -opinion of many is the fact that all of the CIO, socialists, communists and labor racketeers are strong for him as they are also for President Roosevelt. We here .in Iowa, love Henry as an tionest Christian gentleman, but we do not care to place him in charge of the finances of the country. Better leave Jesse Jones on the job, and let Henry head the Commerce Department. The Local Option Matter On the face of it "local option" as to whether liquor shall be sold in each community, sounds quite fair, but when it is in actual practice it has been found not to work to the satisfaction of anybody. It merely means that if the Algona community should refuse to allow beer to be sold, and we will suppose that Bancroft allowed beer, we who might object to being told by our neighbors whai we should be allowed to eat and drink, would go to Bancroft for our beer o'r have it sent down. This is an old story familiar to most people. When Iowa, adopted state prohibition a number of years ago, Algona folks drove to some border Minnesota town when they wanted a case of beer. As Ray Sperbeck said in his Swea City Herald in regard to the current discussion in the state legislature of the proposed !'«rcal option measure: "Older Swea Cityans re;• member how some 25 or 30 years ago the road • .was .ik-ept hot to the saloon at Ceylon, over in "•'Minnesota. The memory of those beer cases, both > empty and filled, stacked to the roof of the local ..Rock Island station still abides." In Algona the : same. or-,w(i:-3e conditions existed and the late EJ VYxuit\(', j-aftv/iiy express man, was almost worked 'to death hauling beer from his express office. *Ehe present beer taverns, in Algona at least, are conducted in an orderly manner, although it is said that in the big cities of the state they are more or less criticized. We guess that in the long rua the only sure way to stop us from drinking is educate as to its evils. It is always difficult to enforce an unpopular law, or a law passed when the flower of our young manhood is in Europe. A law must have popular approval it' it is to be enforced. A Word From the West It always pleases a newspaper man lo receive a friendly note or comments from subscribers when sending in their subscription payment or at any other time, as a matter of fact. When our friend, John Byson moved to California a year ago he promised to let us hear from Him \occasionally, and so let the many Algona friends of himself and family learn how he liked the climate out there. Now here is a letter from his son, Earl Byson, who lives with his family at Glendale, California, where he located six years ago, The younger Mr. Byson enclosed the following note with his subscription payment: "Enclosed find $3.00 for the Upper Des Moines. Without it good old Algona would be missed. Sorry we did not send the money sooner, but we have been so busy. You see I am ft did again. We now have thre6 daughters. Their names are Phyllis Joan, Karen Lynn and Janice Kay. My wife is the former Vanita L. Thorseh, from Armstrong, lows. My folks, Mr. and Mrs. John P. Byson of San Diego, are fine and like California. Some time ago my friend, Geo. L. Miller, was here to see us. He is in the navy. I am still working at the Lockheed Aircraft plant. Have been here six years. Well, this will be 'all for this time. Almost forgot, the Irvin Seemans also send their greetings for a happy new year and the best of luck to their old Algona friends. We all sure do miss Algona, the "Friendly City."—THE EARL BYSONS, 808 South Mariposa St., Glendale, California." Orton Stands for Wallace, Algona, Iowa, Jan. 30, 1945. To the Editor: I have spent the evening listening to the radio news men and commentators, as to the proceedings and their opinions, regarding the appointment of Henry Wallace as Secretary of Commerce. In listening to these gentlemen one should remember that they are sponsored, almost entirely, by some corporation or big business concern who is spending millions of dollars in advertising merchandise that often they do not have in stock, or cannot even manufacture until after the war, perhaps for a year or more. The cost of this doubtful advertising is entered on their books as "operating expense" and manipulated in such a manner that it cannot be taxed for war purposes; thereby cutting down the war effort millions of dollars, and piling up the war taxes that you and I will partially pay in future years. Many of these men should not be considered as news analogists and commentators but political mercenaries in the employ of the Tory branch of t>ig business; spreading propaganda and educating the public mind for "business as usual", non interference of government in business, etc., etc. They represent the most subversive element with which the war effort has to deal and can be considered even more dangerous than the Isolationists. We have approximately $50,000,000,000 appropriated to the R. F. C., undoubtedly the greatest lending agency in the world, to be expended in loans and various other ways to aid the war effort. If the subversive interests can control congress, and it now appears they can, the sky will be the limit for graft and corruption and the "common man" will again go to the dogs. Standing between these interests and their loot is our own Henry Wallace. Tory Big Business fears and hates him worse than the devil hates holy water. Perhaps the most bitter and unfair of all radio commentators against Wallace and also the administration is the man Fulton Lewis, Jr. who is sponsored by an Iowa firm selling chicken feed. It is my opinion that it takes more than "chicken feed" to pay for the "bull" that this commentator spreads. He has the German propagandist, Lord Ha! Ha! faded a hundred fold and Tokio Lizz is a piker in comparison. As I gaze into my crystal ball it dimly appears that: I can see the $ sign of the Manufacturers' Association or the U. S. Chamber of Commerce throughout his entire review. It seems to me like poor business for any Iowa firm peddling chicken feed to sponsor this program to the farmers in Henry Wallace's home state, where we know and love Henry Wallace for the enemies he has made, and where he is considered the farmer's best friend.—CLARK ORTON. Dollivers in Washington Washington, Feb. 5 — A newcomer in the House of Representatives has many lessons to learn about procedure in the House. Rules for the governing of a deliberative body of 435 members must necessarily be technical and require the earnest study and attention of a new member. But a new Congressman does not suffer from any hazing at the hands of the older members. He is received with courtesy and every attempt is made to inform him of the House routine and other things he should know. Congressman James I. Dolliver of Fort Dodge, the new Representative from Iowa's Sixth Dis-. trict ,is now settled in his office in 308 of the Old House Office Building and invites all lowans visiting Washington to call upon him. Miss Marguerite Mullen of Fonda is his secretary, and the office staff is kept busy with the countless duties u congressman's office is called upon to perform. Dolliver hasn't missed a roll call and doesn't expect to miss any. He is intent on doing his job well. He has been assigned to the Post Office and Roads Committee and the Immigration and Naturalization Committee, both of which are important to Sixth District residents. The committee assignments of the other members of the Iowa delegation are also of interest: Martin, 1st district, Military Affairs; Talle, 2nd, Banking and Currency; Gwynne, 3rd, Judiciary; LeCompte. 4th, Public Lands, Insular Affairs, Election of the President, Vice President, and Members of Congress; Cunningham, 5th, Veterans Affairs, Roads; Jensen, 7th, Appropriations; Hoeven, 8th, Agriculture. Congressman and Mrs. Dolliver attended the inauguration and the White House luncheon that followed. The guests at the luncheon were greeted in the main hall of the White House by Mrs. Roosevelt and Mrs. Truman and later were served chicken salad, a sandwich, caJte and coffee. The Iowa Society of Washington honored the Hickenloopers and the Dollivers on Jan. 20 at a reception and dance at the Shoreham Hotel. Other members of the Iowa delegation were on hand to welcome the newcomers. A speech in Congress that personally interested the Sixth District Congressman was Clare Booth Luce's talk on her trip to the European battlefronts, in which she lauded the 34th Division and told of its valor and sacrifices. It is well known that a great many young men from the Sixth Iowa District are serving in that division. "Only a few days prior to Mrs. Luce's report," Dolliver said, "Lt. Col. DeLoss Marken, chaplain of the 34th, called on me and we talked at length of what the division had done in- some of the toughest fighting of the war. I am intensely proud of these boys, so many of whom we all know." It is interesting to note that every member of the Iowa delegation is a veteran of World War I and knows from personal experiences the problems that will confront those returning from World War II. The School Question By A. E. Lauritzen, County Superintendent of Schools In the editorial section of the Fej«. 1 edition of the Upper Des Moines it was suggested that the writer of this article briefly sub»nit the school teacher's side of the bills involving schools which is before the legislature at the present time. Obviously it is im- Jsossible in a brief article to do Justice to such an important and far reaching program of public •welfare legislation as recommend- «dTy the School Code Commission- For this reason the Kossuth County Council of Education, made •UP."of representatives of rural and town teachers, set up a speakers' bureau. This bureau, made up of approximately 25 laymen, teach- principals and superintend- have appeared before many including service clubs, p Farm Bureaus, P, T. A. s, Tbe purpose of this bureau is to present the facts relative to the present status of Iowa's schools, together with the recommendations for improvements as set out in the report of Iowa School Code Commission. Organizations desiring further services of the bureau are asked to contact the office of county superintendent for appointments. The teachers of Iowa, through the Iowa State Teachers Association, is dedicated to a similar task. This fact is adequately brought out in the edi-' torial section of the February issue of the "Midland Schools," official spokesman of the teachers of Iowa. "Since long before the creation of this Code Commission, or the one that preceded it, the Iowa State Teachers Association has been calling attention to needed legislation to correct in herent weajcnesses in Iowa educa tion. Our interest in doing so is a professional one. 'It is the same as that of a medical association in! sounding the alarm on dangerous conditions of health and sanitation. It is similar to that played by the bar association in directing public attention to outmoded and dangerous legal practices. It is like a ministerial group attacking flagrant offenses against public morals." The writer wishes to emphasize the fact that the schools belong to the people and dedicated to the most important task ot educating 'Iowa boys and girls. It is, therefore, rather an impressive fact that more than a dozen prominent organizations representing more than a half million Iowa voters, have gone on record as supporting the recommendations of the Iowa School Code Commission; It is. also interesting to note that the personnel ol tni Code Commission was chosen to coordinate the judgment of the legislature aM the Voting public, wo memlbeis were selected from each house o the General Assembly, and three members were appointed from outside that group by the governor. ' The appointees includes three lawyers, two farm people one schoolman and one Salesman The Commission worked with th£ assistance of the attorney general's office, the code editor, the state department of .public instruction, the state institutions of higher learning, and Other individuals and organizations. It Utilized the report of the previous Code Commission, thereby realizing the benefits of the two preceding years of intensive research. It Is quite evident therefore that this is a lay rather than a teacher's report. This is as it should be or the schools, in the main, as states before belong to the people and not to the teachers. Any teacher welfare or school legislation should have in mind the benefit of the pupils. The program of state support recommended in the Commission's, report is one of several bills designed to improve Iowa's elementary and secondary educational program. It is a well known fact that Iowa's method of financing its schools is weak in that only 1.4% of the total cost of schools comes fromT the state aid. In this respect Iowa ranks at the bottom of the list of 48 states. The $12,000,000 asked by the commission would finance Iowa schools to the amount of approximately 25%. The national average for state support of public schools is approximately 33%. There is a tendency to label the homestead exemption credit as state aid to schools. The purpose of this law, as specified in the act is "to encourage the acquiring of ownerhip of homesteads" by reducing the property tax on homesteads. Edward D. Allen, research specialist at Iowa State College makes this statement concerning .his matter: "It is incorrect to 1s- bel the homestead credits as state aid to local schools. They bear no relation either to the educational load or economic capacity of local school districts." In brief, the 12 million dollars asked by the Commission is not designed to make the total cost of education that much higher in the state tout to assist in a program of equalizing educational opportunity for Iowa's children and relieving the propcr- ;y tax for schools. Again it should be emphasized that much material is available for the press and public meetings presenting the facts about/Iowa's schools. Any person or group desiring to study the Report of the Iowa School Code Commission and other descriptive materials relative to Iowa's schools should write the office of county superintendent or contact your local school authorities. A statement of Iowa's future is ably given by Virgil M. Hancher, president of the State University of Iowa in the following words: "The Future of Iowa lies not in the richness of its soil or in the wealth or diversity of its mines and factories, but in the energy, character, and intelligence of its children—the next generation that will produce^..the wealth and services necessary for the maintenance of our civilization. . . . Every form of wealth we have calls for intelligence for ts production. Sheer self preservation alone, if nobler reasons are absent, should dictate the • improvement of our school system and every other agency that will guarantee us an energetic, sound and intelligent people."

I've got it figured out that there are about seven cisterns full of soft water in ;he snow on my lawn and I'll be lad to sell it at about two bits er cistern. Those of you who want soft water should take advantage and get this snow right now. I don't need that much soft water, or I wouldn't sell the snow, Decause on account of it only takes about l/96th of a cistern of soft water to give my scrawny and jony frame a cleansing twice, a year.

Lund have received word that their son Adolph has recently been transferred from New Guinea to the Philippine Islands. "Ole" has been overseas eight months. His new is now a member of the Pipe Puffers. And a bifc later I tftet Sgt. Slgwell Wood and he was smoking a pipe but it wasn't a G I pipe because oh account of it had a gold 'band around the stem and there ain't no gold in G I stuff and he was with Joe Beaten* lehner but Joe didn't have his pipe with him because on account of it was stronger 'n the ser geant's pipe. A check of the pipe puffer etub members shows that the four strongest pipes in the club of a hundred members are those of Homer Nolte, Nick Weydert, Earl Sprague and Chas. Ostwlrtkle. Next Saturday at ,4 bells those four pipes are going to put on a wrestling match on the main square and I'm betting $700 Earl Sprague's pipe.pulls down the money for having the strongest strength. I ought to know because on account of he's the foreman in the UDM and every time he lights up in the basement the office floor waves and expands and makes me dizzy. The Rotarlans met Monday night and the ladies were guests and I was there and the Mrs. was with me and that's how come I didn't have much to say because on account of she insists I yawp too much but I enjoyed the chicken dinner and I sat close to one of the posts in the dining room which sort of hid me and then Abe Lauritzen he led the singing and I wanted the boys to sing Roll Out the Barrel," because on account of they can do that number the best but he had 'em sing something about "Sweetheart" and which is sentimental, and Ralph Miller said the reason I didn't sit at the head table was because I was too noisy and my dome was.too shiny and I don't know what he me,ant by that crack and I sure got to give it to the Rotarians, they've got a swell bunch of good looking women and a lot of "em smiled at me, or maybe they were just laughing at mo. And when they served the ice cream Bob James and Floyd Bohannon and Roy Brown put cream on it and I tried it and it tasted good and Mrs. Brown said Roy dunked everything, even cake, and I'm for him because on account of I like to dunk, too, and the Rev. Price suggested we wear rubber sleeves so we didn't get coffee clear up to our elbows when we dunked. A n d when the boys lighted up the smokes after the dinner L. F. Rice was the only gentleman there to smoke a cigar, and Dr. Scanlan didn't have a good thing and it didn't look his pipe along which probably was like a cigaret shortage because on account of not a man rolled his own at the dinner. address is Pvt.
