For some reason we never could enthuse over •Governor George A. Wilson when he was governor of Iowa, but since he has become a member of the United States Senate,' we have noted that he is generally to be found voting very sensibly and, if anything, it seems to be "growing on him." 'The other day in a Washington interview he stat- 'ecl that he could not vote for any reduction in taxes as long as congress continued to authorize 'unlimited spending of federal funds. He called attention to the senate approved unemployment compensation bill, permitting payments up to $200 to war workers for transportation to their homes or other jobs. Sen. Wilson with same other senators tried to place some limitation on the bill but •was unable to do so. He figures that the bill could add hundred of millions of dollars to the government expenditures this year. "If we are going to keep right on spending money hand over fist," Sen. Wilson, says, "we should at least spend it on something that will provide jobs for people, raither than on things that will discourage people from working." Sen. Wilson is convinced that congress must enact a federal sales tax if federal income is to be kept near the level of federal expenditures. It has been said of Senator Wilson that he was not as genial as a politician should be, and •was not strong on back slapping and kissing babies in a campaign, however that may be, he seems to be showing some good sense, which is of more importance to his constituents. Keep 'er •up, George, and we may vote for you next time. Adffidnistra'lton:, undertakes to GUARANTEE everyone a job? Just what does it mean fof us to declare it as our fixed policy to provide those jobs, not as a favor but as a defnite RIGHT'of every citizen? Shall we also guarantee a GOOD job or a SATISFACTORY job, or shall we just declare that if'anyone wants to work •we will see that he or she wor,ks? Certainly, if we.are going to accept full responsibility for seeing to it that everyone works, will it not naturally follow that we will also through our national administration assume the direct responsibility for deciding what he shall DO and what he shall RECEIVE for his labor? Has this ever been done before? Oh, yes. It has been done for many years in Russia. It was done for several years in Germany under Hitler. It can be done here—BUT, only if we—the government —have full power and authority to say just exactly what each person shall do and what, how and when he shall be paid. Do you think government can guarantee every bricklayer or carpenter or plasterer or cabinetmaker or any other craftsman a continuous job at his particular kind of work? Will these skilled workers be entitled to liberal unemployment pay if they decide not to work unless the job is SUITABLE? Well, what do you think? If you and ^ the rest of us guarantee the right of' everyone to WORK, are we also going to guarantee his right to CHOOSE the kind of work he-is to dg-and to decide whether he wants to do it or do nothing? Just where would labor unions come in on this kind of a program? Well, we have definite and convincing answers in those countries where the RIGHT of everyone to work has been recognized during the last decade,or two. It might even be suspected by' thbs4:$h'o read history that the right to work might easily be construed to mean the OBLIGATION to work at whatever task is assigned to you if you want to eat. Without going into such matters as the obviously great cost or any of the features of the proposed bill other, than its opening declaration of policy, and without questioning the good intentions of those •who propose such a declaration, we have no hesitation in saying that such a guar- tee will inevitably result in the end of individual choice as to jobs and wages, for only if we collectively control these conditions of employment can we possibly make good on our guarantee. With those controls in our hands, just what type of country will we be creating? You ought to be able to answer that question without any suggestion or help. Opinions of Other Editors Government To Care For Everybody? ' This idea of paying all of "unemployed" $25 a week, which has been suggested by President "rifuman, is quite generally recognized as only an inducement to loaf. We all know that it is almost impossible at present to get anyone to do tfie work that has piled up on us during the war years. Of course all of the government employees m the war plants have, of should have, a neat sum laid up from the enormous wages paid them by the Roosevelt-Wallace administration, and are able to take a short vacation on their own. The Iowa Taxpayer, a very sensible publication printed Hie following editorial on the matter last week: We know of no one who is not in favor ' of "full employment." There is nobody opposed to the general idea of everyone who wants to work having the opportun- • ity to do so and to receive for such labor an adequate and even a generous com, _pensation. BUT—and if space permitted we •would put that word in luminous letters at least a foot high. BUT—just what is involved when "government," meaning .all of us as represented by our Federal Higher Mathematics. Northwood Anchor: Does anyone in his or* her right mind believe that federal income taxes can be materially reduced and billions of dollars of give-away public money be distributed among financially embarrassed citizens AND the government debt of 263 billion dollars still be paid or materially reduced? There's a good deal of ho- cus-pocus about government but none of its magic can honestly wipe out debt without cash on the barrel head. fft ffi fft Britt News: We sympathize with that King of old who cried out in his misery that he would give his kingdom for a horse. We haven't got a kingdom and we have no use for a horse or mule, but we would give a lot to be able to hire a good, all around printer and operator. What's the matter with the world, anyway? In the newspaper and printing field there are thousands of jobs open to trained workers—and none available. And still we hear men crying out GIVE MEN EMPLOYMENT! We humbly ask, where are the men? * * * Emmetsburg Democrat: Emmetsburg merchants, who have been at their wits end trying to find plenty of store help, read the press dispatches and radio reports of the hundreds of thousands of unemployed in the population centers with their tongues in tljeir cheeks. There's no unemployment problem in Emmetsburg nor, we take it, in any of the cities and towns around us. Right now, here at home, we are told, the help shortage is more acute than it ever was during the war. DEAD CALM IN A In the very midst of a hurricane you'd be safe! Its center is sort of "hollow" . . . calm. All weather packs surprises, you bet—especially Winter weather. Yet you can bet on having your aging car face it safely, with the engine's insides under guard of OIL-PLATING I for Station Identification! The big red Conoco triangle identifies Your Mileage Merchant's Conoco station. There's where to iget good gasoline today. But look for new hushed power—new high-octane —in his NEW-CAY GASOLINE!

W. Stillman asked Monte Pearson, aged 6. "I'm strictly a football fan myself." . .. Monte, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Pearson, wasn't fooling ... he car give you the 1944 standings of every conference in the country, and tell you 'how many yarMs from scrimmage most of the stars madj . , . Judge Stillman is thinking of moving over a bit on the bench and letting Monte sit in on some of the cases. Tommy Hertz, son of Coach and Mrs. Gene Hertz, became a bit angry, the other day, and all of a sudden said "Jesus", and then halted for a second, adding "loves me, that I know." . . .

However, Joe added, he wsan't a fraternity brother. * » * One local young man is still Wondering ... he took a girl friend of his from Fort Dodge to Des Moines to spend the evening, but the girl had to return home while •he stayed over on business . . . "What I can't figure out," said the swain in relating the trip, "i." how she could get from Des Moines to Fort Dodge 'on a street car ... I put her on one late la the evening, and now I can't figure" it out." . . . Somebody might tell him about the Fort Dodge and Southern electric line. * * * One returning G. I. tells us of a buddy of his, from Elmira, N. Y., Who ran across a rationed can of beer—also from Elmira, N. Y. "He wouldn't drink it, or let anybody else drink it—just carried it with 'him and when he got homesick he'd take it out, caress it, put it back, and feel better." * * * ' AROUND THE TOWN: W. A.

Chan Dailey in the role Marjorie Kramer, Ottosen, Honored Ottosen: A miscellaneous shower was held Wednesday in the Presbyterian church honoring Mrs. Adran Ulman, nee Marjorie Kramer, who with her husband visited a few days at the parental Herman Kramer home enroute to their new home at Flint,' Mich. The couple were married March 5, 1945, a' Norfolk, Va., while both were serving with the armed forces. Mrs. Ulman recently received her discharge after serving over two years in 'the' WAVES as a parachute rigger. Her husband is now on inactive duty from the navy air corps. Mrs. Fred Kampen had charge of the following program: Vocal puitar solo bv Mrs. Louis Hen- drickspn- reading by Mrs. Chester Alme. The bride opened many lovely eifts. Hostesses were Mrs. H. F.

Anderson Washington observers say that social security is in the red; a fact the Townsend organization predicted a long time ago. Social Security mus tbe revised in its tax structure. Using a gross income tax base and coverin all citizens as to benefits, or the Townsend Plan proposes is the only way to keep out of the red. These benefits to be paid to those, age 60, who retire from gainful occupation, thus leaving jobs open for the unemployed. Also benefits paid to those whp no longer are able to work, regardless of their age and to widows left •with" minor children. Each group is to spend their benefits each month to keep the money in circulation at all times thereby creating buying power and better business for all. —Adv. of refreshment serveif-uppef at (Jhe VFW-Legioft dance ," , .
