ADVERTISING RATES Display Advertising, per inch —42c Editorial By J. W. Haggard Winston Churchill Resigns Winston Churchill, prime minister of England, resigned last week and will insist on a vote oC cofidence it he is to continue to guide the ship oii state. Churchill had stated that he would resign at the conclusion of the war with Japan, but the labor party toy refusing to collaborate with Churchill's policies longer, has caused him to resign earlier than expected. A .temporary government will be formed by Churchill to act until July 5, when it is thought the election will ba held. It seems that the labor leaders want to socialize Great Britain and run things their own way, substantially changing the whole form o£ government. They call themselves "liberals" and the Churchill government is made'up of conservatives. For many years the conservatives have been greatly in the majority, and with Churchill, the grand old fighter, a popular hero, it looks none itoo good for the success of the laborites in the July election. Churchill formed a coalition government at the beginning of the" war, made up of members o£ both parties. It certainly was his determination and fighting spirit that has carried England through the darkest days that this war brought them and it would seem that he would receive the credit that he had so well earhed By 6n overwhelming vote. Thete Ms been fib election in England for the past fiveryear'S and no one feels able to guaie the exact feelih'g of the people under the vastly changing world of today. However, it would be surprising indeed for the English to dump Churchill at the height eft his personal popularity. If it had not been for Churchill there would be rio England and Hitler would be in control of that kingdom. It would seem. the height of idiocity after the recent, death of President Roosevelt for another strong man to be taken from the councils of the powers at this delicate juncture in the questions of the peace. German Generals Said to Be Drug Fiends It is said that it has developed that many o£ the most cruel and 'beastly of the bi<g German overlords, including a great number of the military leaders headed by Hitler, are drug addicts and some of the most beastly and cruel crimes have been ordered by drug crazed minds. It may be true and it may not, but we suspect that there is a lot of truth in the report. It does not seem possbile that even a low down German mind could commit the bloody and inhuman crimes against helpless men, women and children, to say nothing of the wanton murder of prisoners of war proven against them, unless their minds were dulled with drugs. It is known that when German Field Marshal Van Kleist was taken prisoner the other day 'by the Allies his 'baggage was found to be crowded with morphine and hypodermic needles and other narcotic drugs. OC course most people, in this country at least, have long considered Hitler -a maniac with'a mind perhaps deadened toy drugs and whose fiendish acts has made the real old devil look like a piker. Himmler, who killed himself the other day by taking a dose of cyanide of potassium, a drug w.hioh meant instant death, was perhaps the most brutal of all the Germans next to Hitler himself, is said to have carried this deadly drug on his person, perhaps having a premonition of his end. It is too bad that the entire membership of the Nazis party cannot 'be given the same dose that ended Himmler. iim AI iHii df TWi Nbt Opinions of Other Editors Waukon Republican-Standard: An editor o£ a weekly newspaper commenting on the fact that his paper sometimes made mistakes in its news columns, says he had made more in his last issue and that a good'subscriber told him about it. He goes on to relate that about the same day there was a letter in his post office 'box that did not belong to him; he called for No. 98 on the telephone and got 198; he asked for a spool of No. 50 thread and got No. 60; he got his milk bill and there was a mistake of 10 cents in 'his favor; he felt sick and the doctor said he was eating too much meat and he hadn't tasted meat for two months; the preacher turned in his church notes with the name of the ladies' aid society president mis-spelled, and the editor got the blame for it and the garage man said the car was missing 'because it needed a new distributor, he cleaned a spark plug and it has run ever since. Yes, indeed, editors do make mistakes—and about every thousand years, so do other people. **•»** your PORCH FURNITURE fesi Wallukait Wins Marksman Medal. Assigned to B-29 Duane Wallukrait, who has been training with the army air forces at Amarilla, Texas, has been assigned as a mechanic on a B-29 Fortress. He.recently was awarded two medals, one for a pistol marksman and the other for carbine sharp shooting. Duane was the only one in his company to win the two medals. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Wal- lukait. It .now 'develops tihat ihe man'in Algoha to w^af si hat this spring! was Clafehb<f lips, secretary of the ' Chamber of Commerce, aftd Dr. Janse saw the atra^ hat h6 hastened home and dug 6Ut his sttaw and the two g6h,ts< to they're still geritlemenreveti ihp they violate my straw hat *e|«* lations with impunity aftd dls-, dain. and Unafraid, and Secfetary Phillips ;wants to know-whWe d<j I get my authority to declare the 1st of June'the official-Straw hat day, and that's easily explained because on account of there haSnt been but two days in May when a guy could wear a sttaw hat, with- ear laps and so I picked the .1st day of June to- save yanking out ear laps every other day or so. Dr. Janse says it's my age makes me that way and Mr. ^hlllips says its my ignorance and maybe they're both right (because on account , of I've got gobs of years behind me and I've always been more or less ignorant, so to speak. But June"Jjt Is still Jhe official straw hat day and I'll stick by that even if Art Cogley puts me n the hoosegow for it. Anyway I haven't got a straw hat since my last year's models, three of 'em, were burned on the main drag publicly several months ago. "',.-. This is a funny world .sometimes although it ain't alway a laughing matter. Here are two high class gents operating the linotypes on the two Algona newspapers. Over at the Advance office Senator Duane Dewel is setting the type because on account of the regular operator, Rudy Guderian, is ill, and on the Upper Des Moines Ex-senator Chris Reese is setting the type because on account of Van Wiley, erstwhile operator, hied himself off to Utah to set type, not to join the Mormons he said, and here you have it, two politicians, the senator a republican and. me a democrat, picking away at the linotype keyboards. Of course it isn't necessary that you have to serve in the state legislature to be a linotype operator and neither of us are so doggoned tickled about it, but we are 'both doing a good jab in order that the thousands of perusers of the UDM and the'Advance may get their weekly reading, material, so to speak. I find that at least one person in Kossuth agrees with me as to the low jowled guy who thinks we print too much about the boys and girls in the service., Here's a .etter I received the other day: Dear Mr. Reese: .
