Iowa Congressmen Against English Loan U seems at this writing that the entire Iowa ing committee that "loans to many other r« well as to England are equally necessary if the oHd s not to be divided against itself." Wallace, who is Cerally rated rattier visionary by many of his befriends, insisted that the loan "will make K-Unt contributions to the solution ot our two Zrt Posing problems-the maintenance ot lasting peace and the 'achievement oC full employment" U was noted that Iowa congressmen (all ^blicans, by the way) received this plea with chilly reserve. In addition to disagreeing poh- tically with Wallace 'they oppose the loan. A - hough most of them do not care to say so at this tin* it is understood that they will vote against it l!, a man. It is admitted that the loan to England will 'eventually pass the (house. A long time ago this writer became convinced that he was not able to run the government down at Washirigtno, athough it sometimes seems that someone should be in charge. However, we feel IhTeveryone has a right to his own honest views on the English loan. Of course it seems silly for S* to be foaning hundreds of billions oC dollars of 'money that is being taken from the taxpayers or Crowed, from bond buyers, but at the same time it may be really in the interests or this country to keep England a "going concern." The t,uesU6n "floors" us and smart as we contess to be we Will not Barrel with anyone as to what is best to toe done. And tihen again we are not disposed to take financial advice from big-hearted generous Henry Wallace, who if allowed his own way would take care of us all "from the cradle to the grave If only old. Jock Garner, Jim Farley, or the late Al Smith were "running things" down at Was in«ton we might let them assume all responsibility in the loan matters as well as other things of national importance. The Parking Problem The parking problem is always of interest with towns like Algona and the suggestion of putting in parking meters is now before the City Council here. There seems to be quite a little legitimate objections to the meers and in some towns where they have been tried they have been discarded later. Leighton Misbach, secretary of the Algona Chamber of Commerce, says that in the last lew /weeks his offite has been getting qiute a few complaints on the lack of parking space for the customers of Algona stores. Secretary Misbach sarcastically says "there is room for two cars to park, in front of each twenty-two fool store front.' but leaves no place for the customer of that particular place of business." JVIr. Misbach goes on to say that the Mayor and City Council have done a fine job in developing B public parking lot and thinks that it is up to the merchants Ho see that they and their employees use the city parking lot and let their customers-park in front or near the store where they do their;'shbprpin£. It is his suggestion that business ni'en check up and find out for themselves just 1tfDef"«?'the'.Tlfm's cars ure parked. wV know «f many business men who are careful to pork their car each day a block or so off the maln'bUsine-ss streets at little if any inconvenience tii themselves, and thus leaving the main streets of'.tJie' town .free .to customers. It is a good idea and all should 'keep it in their heads. Women Only Make More Votes. Belmond Independent: The women of the European Countries are to be permitted to vote under tile nsw plan. The women have as much fight to vote as the men but the theory that once prevailed that the woman's vote would clean up frailties has been exploded. Its only result has been that it makes more votes to count. Gob Humor.

Presided. ™' man, who told the arrogant union labor railway men where to head in at, won the admiration Of the rank and file of the nation fora time, but when he slopped to consider that the Pol.hcal Action Corn- mi tee ..f the C. I. O. might defeat him for re-election as president ho subsided .and weakly vetoed the Case labor bill, which-limited the ropnclmu labor unions in their demand for control of the Government. But, wo can at least give Truman credit for showing some regard for the o™nafy citizens when ho forgot for a moment the big union labor vote and showed some manhood. The whole trouble we think is in the fact thnt most of the government officials are playing politics and may easily sacrifice the people's interests to gain a bloc oT orgflni/.ed votes. This brings us to our pet "peeve" and that is that the president and both houses of congress should only be allowed one term in office. Now the president ahd the congress do little but figure on their reelection and it is a continuous campaign with the ordinary man's interests sacrificed because he is unorganized. If it was one term and out no -bloc ol voters could -bull-doze a lawmaker .... Mr Geo. Patterson of Des Moi-ies recently outlined a program that looks good to us as, follows: 1. The president Should be\elected for one 7-year term and toe ineligible to succeed himself. 2. The president should be compelled to select his cabinet from the controlling element -in congress, so the president will be responsible to, and ttie president and congress will then -be in harmony. 3. A senator should be elected for one Oycar term and be ineligible to succeed himself. 4. There should be one senator from each state. 5. A congressman should be elected for one 4-year term 'and -be ineligible- to succeed himself. G-year term and -be ineligible to succeed congressman nor more than five congressmen from each state, depended upon the population. Source of Reform. Let us hope the big men of our country will become interested in lending their support to honest, efficient, and responsible government. Reform never comes out of congress, or Washington, but comes from the heart of the people—the power behind our government. tearing nboutjtJtrom his brethren hair ejilters£ ^ ' —--- Opinions of Other Editors Labor Law Works Affainst Employment. ' Belmond Herald: The less efficient worker should be vigorously opposing -the Wage-Hour la\v now before Congress. If the toil! passes the les efficient workers are going to be dismissed and only the most efficient, workers employed. Many neople who do not rate high efficiency have jobs because their employers can .pay .them something like what they are worth. If the Taw'force* the employer to pay them '75 cents an hour he will of necessity be forced .to let them go. These are the people who should be opposing the law by \ynting their Congressman. A job at a small wage is better than a job at a wage no employer can pay. People Expect Government Support from the "Cradle to the Grave". Northwood Anchor: What made this country the strongest and most free and independent in the entire world'' Well, it wasn't the habit of looking to the federal government for everything instead of getting what we wanted by personal endeavor, thrift and good management. If individuals, cities and "tales continue to look to Washington for; help the very qualities which made us strong will be destroyed and we will have a totalitarian state, brought about by a so-called democratic people who quit standing on their own feet. New Deal Fal'ce. Northwood Anchor: What a confusing mess!
