Haggard Credit For Roosevelt The recent three-power conference on the shores of the Black Sea in Russia, is generally considered to have 'been of great value in making for unity and agreement on many of the problems that are constantly arising in regard to the conduct of the war and the making of the peace. It is true that some of the critics of Roosevelt like the columnist, Frank Kent, are making an outcry because the public has not been given all of the interesting details and conclusions arrived at during the meeting of Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt. It looks somewhat silly for anyone to expect that the inner workings of the conference should be told to the world. This could only tend for disunity between the Allies and could do no possible good. The general outline of the conclusions arrived at has been made public and are satisfactory we think to most Americans. Anything more might give a columnist like Drew Pearson a chance to criticize and make bitter feelings amongst ourselves as well as our allies. Pearson is already trying to stir up trouble because Roosevelt did not secure a promise from Stalin to declare war on Japan after the end of the war in Europe. It may be that Stalin has made such a promise, 'but why begin to talk about it until the time is ripe for action? Another thing that peeves Pearson is that Roosevelt did not insist on establishing the boundaries of Poland. Now, such things as establishing the boundaries of Poland so far as this writer is •concerned is what has made many Americans isolationists. We certainly have enough troubles of our own without going over to Europe and trying to establish the boundaries of Poland. Few people in this country give a tinker's damn about the boundaries of Poland. It seems, however, that Roosevelt is given credit for securing for Poland a free election and a secret ballot. So far as most of us are concerned Poland can have the government that she may want, the same as we expect to have the form of government we prefer. Seems to us that this was guaranteed by the Atlantic Charter. Many of us Voted for President Roosevelt for a fourth term solely on the ground that he was an "indispensable" man in meeting with the European rulers on account of his acquaintance .•and understanding of their characters and the mutual respect between them. The great majority of those voting for Roosevelt voted for him solely on this account and we think that at the recent meeting of the powers their judgment has been vindicated. Where leaders are distrustful of each other, it is extremely difficult to get together on problems that will influence the whole world for perhaps hundreds of years to come. President Roosevelt has given the best part of his life in this war and is at least entitled to the sincere thanks of the people he has served. Pity the Poor Germans Some people think that the German civilians should be regarded as merely unfortunate in being under the rule of the cruel Hitler and his Nazis, and that they should be treated with kindly respect. Again there are others who want them to suffer all of the inhuman barbarities that their brutal soldiers have visited on all of the weaker and practically helpless countries of Europe. It seems to us that the German citizens should not expect to be "babied" very much by our invading forces. They can't lay everything to Hitler and Himler, Goebels and Goering. Not by the wildest stretch of imagination could any one see President Roosevelt starting out to conquer the world by brutal and bloody annihilation of Jews, Poles, Russians and all of the smaller peoples of the world. The common people of the United States would not stand behind him for a minute. Hitler would not have got to first base in his massacre of helpless men, women and children if the masses of the German people had not sanctioned his mass execu- tions of Jews, Poles and other innocent victims of his maniacal hate. Now, the shoe is on the other foot and the brutal Hurts are whining and asking for the mer* cy they refused to grant other helpless people, whose countries have been ravaged, the women raped and given over to the lusts of the brutal soldiers. Allied troops advancing into Germany on the northern front are greeted by English language signs such as the following posted on most of the homes: "Please treat this home as you would your own." And, "We have done you no harm, do not harm our little home." Think of Ladice. and the complete destruction of the village and the cold blooded murder of every man, woman and child, all of .whom were innocent of raising a hand against Germany. Think of the mass killings in Poland and Russia, and the thousands of "executions" of innocent "hostages" by the brutal Germans and then listen to their whining now. Just wait and see what the Russians, whose country has been laid waste, are going to do with jthe Germans. When Russia finishes there will be little left of the once proud German nation. European Allies Should Police Germany We note that a number of our exchanges are- already discussing the details of how Germany shall be dealt with after the surrender, if any. A few of them are warning that the people of this country will not stand for the idea of the American soldier boys being kept in Germany to do police work for years. These papers think that European soldiers should reasonably be expected to handle this problem and we think that they may have something there. The majority of the United States boys have been, fighting in the European countries for several years and are justly entitled to a vacation. And then, after all, there are still many people in this country who think that this is not our war as much as it is that of the European nations. We are asking nothing for all of the blood and treasure we have expended, but the assurance of a lasting peace. The war has not ended yet by a long shot, but it is liable to happen some of these days and plans for the occupation of Germany by our armed forces are timely. We suppose that at the recent three power conference of the Allies in the Crimea, this matter was discussed and agreed upon and of course we must abide by that decision, but in the meantime we may be allowed to air our views." Against Paying Governor More Than $7500 It seems that a majority of the people of Iowa are against raising the salary of the Governor from $7,500 to $10,000 and we are inclined to agree with them. A recent poll of the state conducted by the Iowa Poll of Public Opinion showed 57 percent of those answering the questionnaire unfavorable to the raise in salary for the governor. An even larger percentage said they were not in favor of a general increase in salaries for all elected state officials, with the heaviest opposition coming from the towns and farms. The vote on this question showed 66 per cent against a general raise. It is presumed that when a man is elected governor his main purpose in view is the distinction and honor that goes with that position and that he is not engaging in a business proposition. A salary or business profit of $7,500 per year is more than most of us are able to earn with many thousands invested. A man who is running for governor with an eye out for profiting from the office might be considered an undesirable candidate. Opinions of Other Editors Germans Being Entertained Humboldt Republican: It has come to light that in an Owosso, Michigan, canning factory more than half the workers were German prisoners of war under American army supervision that v:orked side by side with American girls. Two of the girls helped two of the German prisoners escape. The expose came at the trial of the escaped prisoners who had been captured and brought back, where the girls testified that there had been wholesale drinking between the prisoners and the girls, and that they had with permission of those in charge, gone on necking parties, that love notes circulated about the factory in abundance. They also testified that the foreman knew of the drinking and sometimes indulged with them. Military police carried notes between the prisoners and the girls. In short, the affair "stinks." v i» i» Heavens! Only $10,000.00? Webster City Journal: President Roosevelt may be offended at the action of the National Planning Board in advocating the increase of salaries of congressmen from $10,000 to $25,000 and giving them large pensions upon their retiracy. Thus far Roosevelt has succeeded in finding more ways for extravagant spending which amounts to downright recklessness with other people's money than anybody else, that he may feel offended to find that somebody has thought of something in that line that had escaped his attention. But he has been so busy with foreign affairs of late that it is not surprising he would overlook something that he had become an expert at, and so recognized by other less efficient experts in this and other countries. •IP *& *P Spending Other People's Money Humboldt Republican: When one views the bills that have been introduced into the Iowa Legislature and that call for higher taxes or seek to use the money in the state treasury, he can not help being amazed. It would seem that now would be the time to lower the local and state taxes, get the debts paid and prepare for the future. Instead to the minds of many it is a time to "get it while the getting is good." The legislature is to be congratulated on its stand against increased spending. Thank God we have a few sane people in the state. In "Higher Learning" Circles An Algona graduate of the State University of Iowa, now dead, made the statement that he found that a majority of the students of colleges were given a chance to learn to play poker, wear lavender socks and loud neckties and drink liquor. However that may be, we do know that many of the college boys today show little knowledge of our country. The Saturday Evening Post recently printed an article by Henry F. Pringle, that was an eye-opener to the Editor of the Grinnell Herald-Register, who makes the following comment: Mr. Pringle gave some startling statements regarding the results of a history survey conducted by the New York Times in 1943 among some 7,000 college freshmen. Here are some of the discoveries made: Abraham Lincoln: One fourth of those quizzed did not know that he was president during the Civil War. Others said he •"emaciated" the slaves. Theodore Roosevelt: Variously credited with having been a hero of the War of 1812, 3 general in World War I, a forest ranger and founder of the NRA. One student said that his greatest contribution to the United States was that "he collected large quantities of animal heads"; another that "he walked on a big stick with a soft voice." Thomas Jefferson: Listed as president of the Confederacy, founder of The Saturday Evening Post, a Salvation Army worker and as the author of the Monroe Doctrine. Woodrow Wilson: More than 2,000 did not know that he was president during World War I. Andrew Jackson: Almost half of the students confused him with General Stonewall Jackson. Other instances were given by Mr. Pringle. These are some of the more interesting. We take it to be a self evident fact that Americans should know their own history. The above is pretty good evidence that they do not. We consider it significant that the quia was made among college freshmen, young people who were pursuing higher education and who should be we}l grounded in elementary branches. We admit that the statements in this article, were a distinct shock to us. We are unable to understand such abysmal ignorance. We do not believe that it would be found in any European country. And, as a matter of fact, we wouldn't be surprised if a lot of college freshmen knew more about European history than they knew about their own. RAVINCS bv REESE A I ittli of TMi •- A Llttlt of That•• Ndt Much of Anything For one whole week t didn't shave my upper lip and yott'd toe surprised at the comments and wise cracks made to me and \ was even accused by Joe Lynch of hiding behind my Whiskers^ so to speak. 1 don't intend to grow a mustache, not even the itsy- bitsy type like Dr. Shlerk wears nor the spread^over type like Bill Rusch of Wlhittemore sports, in fact just as soon' as the pimple on my upper Up heals so 1 can shave without losing a quart of blood every time, I'll mow the hairs off the lip and be my own sweet self again. But I have discovered that, regardless of my three score and ten years, 1 can still grow whiskers, and ain't that something? Every day as the mustache .under my snoot gained in length and ooked more like a mustache I received more notice, and a lot of guys wondered was it lack of soap and water which darkened my upper lip or was it just sun>urn. But Saturday tbs mustache lad grown to such proportions that Ray Irons said he didn't think I was man enough and Ralph Miller told me to come out from behind and Fred Shilts wanted to know was I hiding behind bushes and Bob Loss asked me was I going to shave 'em off Sunday or keep on trying to fool folks and the P. O. gang said I'd have to bring references because nn account of they didn't dish out mail to strangers, and'espe- cially unshaven bums and tramps, and Ralph Tice said he knew of some dope which helped grow hair on 'hogs and maybe I should get some so I could grow a real mustache and Alfred Schultz said he'd still sell gas to me and he didn't if I had whiskers on either lip just so I had coupons and I admit I've had one heck of a time with this mustache business and I'm having 'em cut off and I wish I could find some dope which stunted whisker growth and besides that, why can't folks leave me and my whiskers' problem alone? Now if I could grow a mustache like Horace Clapsaddle wears everything would be O. K. because on account of that's my notion of a man's mustache and Horace tells me he never has any trouble with it either, always in good balance, not too 'big, not too long, not too short, just right. A lot of these mustache growers could well take a lesson from" Horace. —o— I've figured out a post war tary the names of Paul Seeley, Leo Spilles, Ed Thaves, E. J, Van Ness, Mike Wagner, Frank Sender, A, L. Long and Lloyd Pratt have been mentioned, because on account of they .can all write so you can read it dhd that job will pay probably about $5,000 per annum with typewriter furnished. A board of directors will also be elected at the meeting and here, too, there will be some interesting politics played. At any rate the Soft Water Cistern-Heating and Snow Melting' Corporation of Algona promises to be a worthwhile project and one which will boost the city that,much higher on the map of accomplishments In Iowa. —o— I went out to the Plum Creek school house Friday night and fiddled my head off while two sets danced square dance to my scraping and a .good time was lad -by all. Merle Woltz pounded the piano with me and he's plenty ;ood at it. Leonard Drager was the auctioneer and called off the orders for the dancers and he's no slouch at It either. We had a ed thi. meal am fcwss h as. all #t eatf ( ttfeugh, a to the foifes didn't fememfo®?

Jute Larson passed the beans to me and 1 thought maybe he was a Seandihdovian because on account of the'Larson name tout he says nix on that stuff. Max Stratton, Ben Webber, L. S. Young, County Agent Roy Brown and Chester Harmon and his two boys, Charles and Richard, weife all at the same table, too, and the. boys looked at me<s6 funny like as if they Wondered how come I was there, but they liked my fiddling, and Cliff Benschoter (by the way he wore the 10udest tie present) suggested people Weren't very particular when they ate at the same table with me and Don Weaver felt sorry for me and which 1 sure appreciate. Walter Campney was the master of ceremonies and while he didn't stuff cotton in ihls ears I could see he felt he had heard better fiddle scrapers than I was but he was nice to me, at that, and 1 store nad a lot of fun and if, I'm eVer kicked out of Algona I'd like to move to Plum .Creek because on account of I love plums and creeks and the folks but there are swell to me uituiu eeieuuuii tJy AVUP.

Berkland has project to give a lot of the boys work when they come home after having wiped up on the Nazis and Japs and I've already got the project on its way because on account of I've got the O. K. of the WPB, the MPB,.. the PWA, the WAP to put the job over and here's what we're going to do— organize and incorporate to build a heating plant under the court house lawn as well as under the lawns of Herman Hauberg, Bob James, Senator Dewel, Tony Didriksen, et al, and during the ter when there's snow on these spaces turn on the heat and melt the snow right quick and then ;he soft water will be carried in pipes to a reservoir just west of the swimming pool and there it will be stored for use through the year and we don't have to depend on rain for cisterns, etc.* during the year, and therexs where the work comes in, buildv ng the heating plants and laying all the piping to the reservoir and :he swimming pool. It's a great dea, and I'm told that the sidewalk shovelers' union here plans on having some such method ap*- :>lied under the sidewalks so the now can melt and run off. instead of having to be shoveled off. Robert A. Carney suggests hat the former garden area just north of his place be included in he heating plant area because on account of there's a lot of snow and soft water in that place several times a year and he doesn't need that much just for his own purposes, and Chas. Clement is lot for the snow melting idea because on account of he believes n soft water being available- In pipes so the barbers can use it on the physiognomy of hard whiskered customers. —o— Clarence Pollard, big chief in Algona's utilities, has put his O. C. on the project because on account of the city is running out of water softener equipment and by piping soft water direct to people's kitchen sinks and bath •ooms it's going to greatly add to morale where they don't have to jreak hard water for dishes or bathing with an ax, and they save a lot on spap, too. It would give a dozen men work keeping books on the citizens who have soft water piped into their homes direct from the court house lawn and soft water reservoir. Senator Dewel has been asked to introduce a bill in the legislature providing for the prohibition to use lard water on lawns because on account of it makes the grass too stiff while soft water makes it silky and green. Next week at 8 o'clock a meet' :ng will be held in the court house for the purpose of organizr ng and incorporating to put over the Soft Water Cistern-Heating and Snow Melting (Corporation of Algona. Already there's quite a bit of politics going on up and down the main drag for and by guys who want to hold .office 3n he corporation. Several names lave been mentioned for president, Including my own, but I don't want the job. However» there are some names mentioned, among them being Joe Bradley, W. R. Clawson, Lloyd Elston, Mel B. Griffin, G. H. Ogg, O. E. Hott, Roy Hutzell, C. S. Kurtz, Dave jeffert, C. A. Momyer, Raymond Norton, Carl Pearson, Howard Platt, and several others. The ob will pay about $7,500 a year and I don't need the jnoney, hepse I don't want the job and then by the time I got the Ravings writ each week I wouldn't have the time to be president.

Anderson The Townsend Plan has the support of many members of the House and Senate, and great numbers of citizens. There are many not familiar with the exact provisions of the Bill and the effect it would have upon the national economy. ..This is true of those who have disregarded the proposal as well as some of its own supporters. Some who favor it know only that it would be beneficial to them •• individually and are unacquainted with the general economic effects'.that would result from it. It is true of those few who have criticized it. Such critics either have waved it aside' as visionary or, without taking the trouble to -ascertain facts, have, on the basis of incorrect assumptions, concluded that the plan would 'benefit trfe few at the expense of the many, or that it would increase the already lar#e public debt, or that it would impose an impossible tax burden or that it would absorb the whole national income.
