W. Haggard Harvey Ingham Visits Home Town Algona was honored last Friday by a short vis'it form our most distinguished former citizen, Harvey Ingham, of pes Moines, who with Mrs. 'ing- ham, was on his way to Clear Lake tor a short yn* cution at the cottage of their : son Willliam, Harvey Ingham has long been rated as AJgona's most illustrious native son.. Harvey was born in Plum Creek township eighty-eight years ago and during his early manhood was the editor of the Algona Upper Des Moines 'for some twenty years, afterwards becoming the editor of the Register and Tribune where he served for over forty years before •becoming editor emeritus lately. Harvey has always been a great lover of Algona, where he is loved by all. Hg says Algona has changed so much in the last few years that it is hardly to be recognized. Come again Harvey, the latch string is always out for you. The War Is Over, Or Is It? It sometimes seems that there is a growing tendency in this counUy to get rid of all the regimentation which has been forced upon US by the war and even 'before the war by the new deal administration. There .are now so wiany bureaus and other government agencies that no one can even estimate their number and they are all telling us what to do down to the minutest details of our everyday life. Some of us are beginning to question whether this is a free country or a dictatorship. These hundreds of "bureaus" have seen given authority by -the people to issue orders, n regard to how the people may fashion .their • ives. The war is over, and the people .are getting sick of being "ordered around like cattle in many personal matters. In.spite of all of the regimen.- ation and orders from "Washington, majiy Of them ssued toy incompetent politicians who may know nothing of the matter in hand, we are now suffer- ng from inflation and constantly rising prices of ood and the necessities of life. Notwithstanding -he fantastic wages being paid labor the constant- y rising prices for the necessities of life wage earners are finding it difficult to get along. The Knoxville Express recently wisely said: 'We thought for a long time that the boom and bust threat could be averted after the war, but with the rising wages, rising prices, pensions for the tired, refusal of many to work at all and a number of other post war conditions, we have come to the conclusion that the sooner the boom- and-bust comes and 1 goes, that the sooner we will all wipe the crimson stream from our noses and get back to making a living. Today America has its head in the clouds, with everybody shunning hard work and honest toil, hoping or trusting in the prbmise of s'tfcialistic crackpots who seem to .think that the nation can maintain supremacy by loafing on the job. Three hundred billions of dollars, almost, must be paid off some way sometime. Whether America, can continue to operate with this internal debt hanging over her head remains .to be seen.. ,But'-^t'any rate it cannot continue, with strikes that interfere with the production that is so vital : -to,recovery." Rede ancldOs Oppose Dewey The stock of Governor Dewey of New York is looking up since the CIO Political Action Committee and the ddmmunists are showing .bitter hatred for him. J v t is always safe to support men for office who have gained the enmity of the Reds and CIO's and such like, We have heard no denials that Govenor Dewey has made a fine governor of the Empire SWte and now the enmity of these two political organizations may have a great force in helping him along the road to the republican nomination for thfe presidency in 1948. It is freely predicted that 1 Mr. Dewey will be re-elected governor of New York this fall notwithstanding the determined efforts of the Reds and CIO's to defeat him, and this,of colirse would put him strongly in the running for president in 1948. The cause for the enmily is rather vague, tout it'stems from the fact that Mr.-jbewey has been a good governor, but mostly from the fact that he does not truckle to the CIO folks and the Communist leaders. It is thought by many that the government of the country is the goal of these domineering organizations and respectable citizens of both of the old parties are unfriendly to them. Any candidate for office to be successful will not lose anything by their opposition. We haveibeen no great admirer of Dowey for president but the enemies ho has made is all in his favor, and he might be able yet to win the republican nomination away from Stassen whom we rather favor. The Waste Of War When former Senator Guy Gillette resigned as head of the Surplus Property Board, a year ago, he escaped a lot of trouble and charges of .graft .in the sale of the billions of surplus s war material. In handling the sale of such an immense amount of Valuable war material there is bound to be more or less loss of huge sums in reselling to private.per- sons' or concerns. However honest the goyern- ir.nt '.representatives may be they are compelled tt sacrifice thousands of dollars of governement money for quick,sales. '''•-•• Down at' Miami, Florida, the other day, Capt. Tijornas Newman, one time coal miner and deep sea fisherman, said he had purchased six U. S. .riavy submarines for $40,000 and figured he had a- net profit of afleast $645,000 on the deal. He said that there wpre $55,000 scrap lead in the submarines batteries, alone, and that the group of 12 Nelco diesel 400 horse power engines were worth $50,000 each, or a total of $600,000. The submarines were built in World War I, at an estimated cost of $1,500,000 and were sold as "obsolete and scrap". This is a fair sample of the'terrible waste of war and it is always eventually paid by the over-burdened taxpayers of the country,' and then with a few loans to England, and other countries of Europe and South America, to say nothing of our own looting senators and contractors it is certainly one of the wonders of the world that we keep going.
