Chairman Gillette estimated ihat fifty billion dollars worth of the total amount of property to be disposed of will Consist of airplanes, guns, ammunition, landing craft, and thousands of items for which little or no civilian Use can be found. Perhaps five billion dollars worth of surplus supplies will be of merchandising Value and will be sold. The remaining 45 billion dollars Mr. Gillette said will consist of real estate and industrial plants. These facts came out at the first meeting of the board the other day. The board expects to set up a new scheme of procedure, with Mr. Gillette handling the real estate and war plants when the time comes, to dispose of them. Mr. Hurley is working out the details of priorities. These provide that federal agencies, state and local government schools, hospitals and war veterans shall be given first chance to purchase such things as they may have use for. Mr. Heller, the third member of the board, is working on the question of co-ordinating the activities of the various federal agencies, which acting under the general direction of the board, will manage the actual sale and disposal of the various types of property. One of the major questions is as to what will be done with farm lands which have been taken over by the government, such as the Ankeny, Iowa, tract of farm land just, north of Des Moines, and the method by which they may go back to their original owners. Surplus sales during the last six months amounted to $519,279,000. Surplus materials on hand for sale Jan. 1, were valued at $41,041,711,000. Prices obtained for consumer goods, including food, clothing, textiles, leather and similar items, have been close to what they cost the government. Automobiles, trucks and repair parts have brought ceiling prices. Airplanes with the exception of light trainers and medium transport ships, have found little or no market. RAVIHGS b v mm A I 6f Thl« - A Little bf Thit Not Much of Anything EDITORIAL COMMENT By ,1. W. Prominent Farmer Discusses School Laws To the Editor: The school code laws are being pressured into existence by appealing to the fact that we love our children and desire that they have the best of everything. The result of these laws will be the opposite of what is claimed. Control of the schools will be in Des Moines, with the state superintendent of schools non-elective and responsible only to a group of appointees of the governor. The state aid feature is a misnomer coupled •with a pressured closing of all rural schools. Increased tuition rates, transportation and building costs will raise the taxes on every acre of Iowa farm land to the maximum levy allowed. If real tax relief was the objective, available state funds would be allocated to each school taxing district, •city or rural, pro rat a at so much per pupil. 'Other methods are used to hold control in a small group over the entire school program. Our rural schools, efficiently and satisfactorily, provide a full elementary education for our farm children. They are superior to the city or consolidated schools for either the backward pupil or the brilliant one, as closer individual •attention makes possible a form of tutor help by 'the teacher. These rural schools with sanded •waxed floors and a full complement of reference 'books and equipment are a credit to the county .-superintendent, the teacher and the local school board, of our present system. The teachers are the best in the world. They are our own girls, sensible intelligent industrious and in most cases .received their elementary education in a rural _,school of the same or an adjacent district. They are all high school graduates with some normal training. They are training our farm children thoroughly enough to proceed through the city foigh schools with their share of honor grades. I agree with E. R. Aschenbrenner, Traer, Iowa, in the Feb. 4th Sunday Register Forum, that conditions are too unsettled to make radical school law changes now.—RAY S. McWHORTER, 1, Hurt, Iowa. War Surplus Board President Roosevelt has been criticized for of his doings, but when he appointed the •"surplus property board, headed by former Sena- 'Hor 'Guy Gillette, it was hard for even his most ^bitter enemies to make out a case against him, try as they might. Mr. Gillette has been made chair- jman of the board, the other two members being .'Robt. A. Hurley and Robt. H. Heller, all men of ' outstanding ability and honesty. This board will d\ave the disposal of something like a hundred l 6MKon dollars worth of property not needed by STne 'government after the war is over. Such immense sums are involved that it is indeed fortunate that the board is made up of men who have been proven of the highest integrity. The board has already begun the disposal of some Gambling Seems Popular Now that the government has put a stop to horse racing, at least for the duration of the war, it has been supposed by some that this would put a ban on gambling generally. But a recent poll by the Gallup people, showed that people were likely to still insist on trying their luck at some kind of game, with the hope of getting money for nothing. There are comparatively few people in this country who are not ready to get some of the luck that is supposed to be floating around. This gambling itch is found to a not very small extent among church members. The Gallup survey showed that "The greatest number of betters, although not necessarily the largest sums of money, are involved in plain old fashioned church lotteries or bingo parties, in various kinds of cards and dice games, and in bets on election or athletic events. The survey showed that only 15 out of every hundred reporting claimed to have made money. The rest said they had either broken even or lost, mostly the latter. The survey showed that the greatest number ot citizens had indulged in gambling at .church lotteries, bingo, etc. That kind of gambling was admitted by 24% of those reporting; those playing cards or dice for money were 20%; betting on election or athletic events, 17%; slot machines, 16%; punch boards, 15%; betting on horse races, 7%, and playing the numbers game, 7%. A good many people said they had played numerous games. After all, the popular bingo gambling is taken very seriously by those enjoying the sport. A recent threat by the authorities of Hudson county, New Jersey, to put a ban on bingo brought hundreds of letters of protest from players who resented the proposed interference with their favorite sport. A survey made of gambling in 1941 showed fewer people gambling this year. The lower figure this year is attributed to the millions of our younger men now overseas where it is safe to say the sport has not been abandoned. The average soldier is usually ready to take a risk in a game of chance. Gambling helps to give a zest to most games and even the ladies and young girls all over the country are placing bets on their bridge games. It is one of the vices, like drinking, that has been fought for years by the good people of the country only to find that the harder it has been fought, the more popular both have become. Drinking and gambling is more or less in the same class as cigaret smoking. A few years ago it was considered a disgrace for a young woman to be seen smoking a cigaret. At the present time it is considered an added accomplishment at least among some of the socially elect. It seems it is rather an uphill fight to dictate the personal habits of most people. Hot Time In the Old Town Webster City Journal: An exchange observes that "Col. Roosevelt and his third wife don't make such a hot looking pair." But regardless of the way they look now it probably will not be many months until they will be having some real hot times. Memories of Old Days That old "he-man" John Dyson, who with his \vife tV.e past year or longer has been living in San Diego, California, recalls old days in Algona, in a recent letter to this paper, which will ibe of interest to many of the old timers. With the exception of a few paragraphs we print the letter below: "San Diego, Calif., ,lan. 24. Algona Upper Des Moines: Dear Bill: Enclosed find money order for $3.00 for the old Upper Des Moines, and it is an "old" paper, when I nee that the Tom l',antry family lias taken it now for over 72 years. That is sure a line record, and they were one of , Algona's finest pioneer families. I always like to'read of early times, and the Geo. Blackford story about the old Blackford Bridge being taken out and ailed in and a new channel cut, and about someone drowning at the west end of the grade. I would like to discuss that and a few more early •memories. The new channel started from our old swimming hole. In fact it was the town swimming hole. Even Ben Haggard was initiated tKere by having his white shirt tied in hard knots, ih« same as the rest of us. And how he read the law to us. We read the code of the hole to him . . The boy who drowned was young Caulkins who worked for Frank Winkel in his meat market. It was the spring of the highest water that Algona ever had. It came within eighteen Inches of going over the railway grade, and it Was into the second story of the old water mill, and they had to take all the machinery apart, both up and down stairs and clean it after the flood Young Caulkins was sent by Frank on one of his fine horses to feed the stock at his slaughter house down by the state park, and the only way he could go was west. Quite a few of us were there at the time and warned him not to try it The current had cut a channel four feet «deep across the road at the west end of the grade •and the horse and rider were swept down stream «Bxrut a hundred yards where later the body of Caulkins was found tangled in a wire fence. He had remained astride the horse up to this point. 'The horse continued on southeast and landed at 'the old Henderson ford, over a mile away. Here was where Jim Cowan and I used to come off the river when we hauled wood for Dad. And do you remember, Bill, the oldest store building still standing on Main street? It was the Wm Cleary store, now the first building east of Botsford's Lumber Co. Also the old college building, which used to stand south of Bert Deals residence. Also Harry Willson who could jump with one leg than any one else m the old school house. Harry rode the highest one wheel bicycle and mounted it from the ground. . . . That Fred Palmer was never beaten as a roller skater by any professional skater, and he skated 'mostly backwards at the Waldo skating rink. . . . That Dr. Sayers used to ride a spotted pony to call on his customers when he first came to Algona. . . . That Dr. Cretzmeyer when he first came to Algona used to keep a livery team in front of his office and rode around a few blocks to give the impression of having a big practice. , . . Remember the tragedy of the drowning of the Prof. Shippey family at the second clam in the river north of town? Shippey and his brother dragged the river all summer to find the body of his little boy and finally gave it up. A. F. Dailey and wife found the bones with shoes still on the following spring caught in some brush just north of the railway bridge. . . . That Dave Haggard was a great auctioneer in his day. When he said "sold Joe" we all knew he was stuck. . . . That Algona was a great manufacturing town for its size. Wagons, sleighs, cutters, buggies and drays were built here. Bradley & Nicoulin shipped drays as far south as St..Louis. . . . Then there was the Brick and Tile Works, Spurbeck's Butter Tub Factory, the Ice Cream & Candy Factory and three foundries and machine shops. . . . That they cut a cannon once and forgot to wrap wire around it. Yes, those were the great days. When the butcher gave liver away and treated the kds to bologna. Beer was a nickel a glass and lunch was free. Men wore whiskers and cowhide boots. . . . That Wm. Cordingley could so neatly rasp the wooden pegs out of the inner soles. They chawed plug tobacco and spit on the sidewalks, but not in Col. Spencer's postoffice lobby where Miss Dodd held forth. . . . That Algona had beautfiul women in those days, both young and old. They wore clothes and shoe heels becoming a lady. They neither painted, powdered, polished or smoked in public or privately. They did not carry poodle dogs in their arms or lead them on a leash to sniff at every box and bag around grocery stores and lamp posts. Men and women lived to a ripe old age and walked miles on Christmas day to greet their, friends. A stereoscope and a hanging lamp in the parlor were considered luxuries. I often wonler as I look around out here on a warm sunny day if we are really drifting back to the era of Adam and Eve. These are the memories of long ago from back home.—From San Diego, where we always look on the calendar to see what time of yeju- it is.—John P. Byson. Ernest Anllker and Del and after they had absorbed the Intricacies of the famous game they wanted to dutch with everybody because on account of they wanted to practice the game and Dutch Lorenz and Dutch Swahson both claim the game was named after them and Which it wasn't because on accouhC'of It was a game invented toy William Penn in the Pennsylvania Dutch days and sure Swanson isn't no Dutch name. Speaking: of' lawns and the need for mowing 'em I'm told that Joe Bestenlehner is going to' plant his lawn to seed and he's Intending to plant the seed up-side-down and so won't need to bother wfth a lawn mower next summer. Now, there's an idea and Joe Will have time to slip over on West McGregor and mow my lawn which he's willing to do. He offered to mow the lawn When I lived neighbors across the street from him but 'he always wanted me to bring the lawn .over because he didn't ever take his lawn mower off the home place. —6— And Adam Berte is said to have the strongest pipe in Algona, .'n fact I've been told the pipe is strong enough to walk alone, and which is all the more reason Adum is entitled to an office in the pipe puffers club. And out at the prison camp Lt. Sloane tells me there are some pipe puffers in the officers' club and he's in favor of organizing an auxiliary pipe puffers club out there and I think that would be a good idea because on account of I know several of the army boys out there who puff pipes strong enough to run a race, say nothing about 'em being strong enough to walk. I'm coming out there, and get your [ dough ready and join the pipe' puffers club today. —n— Clarence Phillips and I are going to syndicate our columns and make a lot of dough because on . , . . ... - - account of I've 'been told by a lot a .j , tw 2 5 lpes m hls P° ckct and | of folks that they cut out the said he had another one some place « cli p» co i umn clarence writes and which he had put away to weaken I the « nuts -. co i umn : write and and he had smoked his Missouri mall - em to the boys in service and merschaum quite a bit and now wh y shouldn't we get a lot of, hed have to get used to the cigars dough for writing famous stuff, so' and O. Madsen was there and j to spe ak? I've written my junk! Henry gave him a cigar and so every week in the TJDM for three | Madsen put his pipe m his pocket. years now an d Arch McDanel Said | and lit up the cigar and kept it T. had the 'best column ever in the going all day, so to speak. But' past 160 weeks this week because ain't it something to have a full on account of it was the shortest and there was less in it and his ( got something there. Be that as it | Two members of the g-ulpers may if I can get a cent a word club have learned the "dutch" j for my stuff by syndicating it I'm game and it took me to teach 'em' going to get rich, because I can although it cost me and it was! write a lot of words in a day. Eliler Faucrby was ddwn from Fenton the other day and being a Dane he threatened to take me out to gulp a cup of coffee but I took a rain check on that and I have figured out what his name stands for in Dane and "FaUer" is not something you put in your coffee and "toy" stands for Town in Dane, pronounced "be", but I sure can't figure out where he got "Einer' because on account of that sounds more like it might be Irish and which Einer ain't. Lloyd Hatibach, ground and building superintendent for the county court house, offers the snow on the court house lawn for sale, in fact he'll toe glad to pay two bits per cistern full of snow and the bidder to do all the shoveling. And Bob James avers that he wouldn't sell the soft water off his lawn because on account of it helps the grass to grow and he has to pay' plenty to have that taken off his lawn in the summer time. Rome Koblson, artist and cartoonist de luxe, from down Lu« Verne way, sends me a group of cartoons of pipe .puffers and one of himself and Sim Leigh, and then he gives a treatise on the business of pipe puffing which is good with a lot of big words ii it. Rome insists a pipe has its place tout he's glad women don't use a pipe on account of there might be some terbaccer or ashes get into a guy's soup, so to speak. I am having Rome's cartoons mounted and shall have 'em on display in the James drug windows at not too far in the distant future and I claim Rome's got "Ding" skinned for cartooning because on account of there ain't no malice in the pictures that Rome draws. I saw a box of cigars the other day and it was "White Owls" and they are pretty good puffing and Henry had just got 'em from a nephew in the nation's capital and at the same time Henry Leftff Mf' ina'krt, .rf'Mp « K .- '. -.J.

Washington—It is "almost mandatory" that the .House Ways and Means Committee report Townsend Plan legislation for discussion arid a vote this year, Rep. George Outland, California Democrat, declared this week. Rep. Outland recalled that 217 Congressmen"' signed a petition ast year to force a showdown on the measure, which calls for pensions to all citizens 60 years of age and older, to be financed by a 3 percent gross income tax. "Actually, the Townsend organization has demonstrated that it is the will of more than a working majority, if not actually a numerical half of the Congress, that such hearings toe held," Rep. Outland declared. The California Congressman, one of the signers of the Townsend petition last year, is a recognized authority on government problems. He won his Ph. D. degree in education in government at Yale University. This is his second term in Congress. Adv.
