There should be a lapse of at least six weeks bofOi'fe commentators and columnists start talking flbbul thd election and presidential possibilities. Republicans and Democrats will again sit down and have their cups of coffee and conversa- .iton will hinge on 'football games, duck hunting •and the latest things the kids did at home; we'll tither have one or two hospitals in the offing,.and start thinking about the coal situation for the winter months instead. All of which is in kecsping with the American way of life. Sometimes we probably all feel that our political slrile seems almost endless; yet it is better that way than to have no strife at all, nothing to say, no viewpoints to express or fear of expressing them. Ask the remnants of populations in middle Europe—they know (he answer. R. B. W. OFFK'IAL ril'V AM) COIfiS'TY NEWSPAPER Are We Loaning Money To Our Ene.\nies? The European ''.v;ir correspondents and other agitators, in an endilivor tn write sensational news eemmandinn big headlines in the dailies have made many people IM'nk that there may be danger 01 another war at n.b distant date. How those Kunu-.ean countries eiulil wage a war against the United States snnv.'t i,i :es seems fantastic. It is our understanding lh.:it practically every country in Eurc.-pe i.- indebiwl to (he United States or is asking for loans of many hundreds of millions. . The United States has been loaning money to T:u--<ia fur the pa^t J'ovr or five years. At first these loans of money .and munitions were under the lend-lease arran.mW-lents, but since the end of 1lie war the constant flow of money and provisions has continued. Record^ show that since the end of the war this country lias contributed more than a billion dollars in money, food, material and equipment to the Reds. This sum was pilled on top (•!' more than 11 billiou.dollars worth of munitions, supplies and oquipmcflt given to Russia during the war as lend lease. For much of the post war aid the United States does not receive tiny direct credit. To Russia ilie United States has shipped since the war 290 jnillion dollars in lend icaxe equipment and supplies including heavy machinery and electrical equipment and canned meats. •• -, Yugoslavia has received 32 miUipn^dollars worth of lend lease supplies s'hicc the war: ' For this so far as we knew, all we tiave 'been given in it'.urn :.< the murder of some of -our air men. The Veterans (..I Foreign Wars at thc'jr annual convention last week protested on shipping any more re- liof to the ungrateful Yugoslavia i'ofks. However r,-; a general proposition us damphool Americans CTntinuo our relief shipments to Russia and the rt-;t of the ungrateful countries, who it seems many people expect will be used against us. It v/on Id appear to any s-ane person that it is about time for us to consider the needs of our own country in preference to ungrateful nations of the old world who may soon be at war with us. J. W. H. How To Be A Whistle Job Down in Oklahoma there is no dust on their educational methods. The state department of health there is sending out booklets to high school girls entitled "How to be a Whistle Job." The bojhlel cleverly expounds points for good health, but docs it under such sub-headings us "Food .fur a Classy Chassis." The book's author, a very pretty Maxino Turner, says that the may to « man's heart is not through his stoma."h, but throng his eyes, and she urges her girls to ncquife a frame that will bring .appreciative whistles. To do this, Hie booklet injects subtle remarks a'bout good I'ood and diet. A proper diet, she says, is the answer to the $04 question. We'll wager ;i tidy sum that every girl receiving the booklet will read it I'rohi cover to cover— ahd we would too, if we could gel hold of one. •R. B. W. Just A Suggestion A news report I'rom Washington tells of (he consternation and furore in some government agencies as employees at the office of price administration, on notice for several months that their jobs aren't permanent, have conic to the realization that OPA is a dead duck. It adds that their plaint is "where do we go Jiom here?" We have a suggestion along this line. We suggest that when their jobs do expire, they return to whence they came, get jobs in their old home communities and settle down .for life. This may be hard to do after a siege in Washington, but it's a lot more wholesome. R. B. W. BACK PRESIDENT IN THIS. Clarion Minitor—We have a glad hand for President Truman on one important matter, and shall urge good citizens everywhere to get their congressmen back of him in it. He is opposed to any tax reductions at this time. None of us like to pay more taxes than we need to. Our law-makers know this, and find it a cheap way to get votes when they advocate measures to cut taxes. But good citizens—thinking citizens—know that ultimately our budget must be balanced and more-—that our public debt must be reduced. And they must know that there will never be a time 'better than now to start on this tremendous job. Now employment is general, wages are high, and industry is flourishing. If ever this people will be able to make a dent in the public debt, the time is now! Unless we can do this thing, the future is hopeless. This is one grave matter in which the prcsi- gress unless we. the people, back him up and vig- cient is right. But he will have trouble with con- orously. If we fired every ••bureaucrat" and clerk and su.ppeci every civilian activity of the federal gov- unment, we'd cut Ihe budget only 14 pea-cent.

Belmond Independent—Some of the administration leaders are concerning themselves over Ihe plight of the small business man and what should be done about it. Ask any small business man how the government can best help him and he will tell you that the quickest and surest way to get the job done is to exempt him ft'om a lot of bureaucratic regulations that are impractical of application and which make the operation of a small business an up hill job. The Wage-Hour law is an example. It is definitely harmful to small business—high flung and starry-eyed theories notwithstanding. , Did you ever novice how often a narrow mind and u wide mouth go together'.' Congressmen Voted For Your Interests... His votes on all legislation were cast in the best interest of the citizens of his district, Iowa and the Nation . . .He actively promoted the welfare of all the people while fighting the greedy policies of the special groups ... He has consistently voted for sound government and the American way of life . . . We can be proud of him and support him in his fight against radical and subversive groups. JAMES I.

BLUE Governor of Iowa By RUSS WALLER Mary T. Van Allen Sestenleh- nor, recent bride of Bill Besten- lehner, who is one of. the newer city carriers here, dropped into the office the other day and bought herself a budget book . , . we didn't tell Mary T. but we have had that budget book kicking around the office for quite a while ... so long in fact that we wondered if anyone was being so old-fashioned as to keep a budget these days. We are very happy to find that at least one recent bride is getting off to a good start, and we pass the information on because it may be worth something in the way of a suggestion 'to others—and we're all out of budget books; in case you mis-construe this a.s a plug for selling them. This same young lady, incidentally, scored six straight strikes the other evening in team play on the local alleys, and wound up with thereabouts. a 205 or Now that we're on the topic of bowling, let us warn you against another young lady bowler, Jo Pclisek ... Jo got us into a discussion of bowling and before we knew it had made us promise to bowl her three games, with the loser to pay the bill . . . after checking up on her scores and inquiring about her game, we find that on a physician's order we cannot accept .the challenge imagine going through life: trying to live clown defeat by a girl. a bowling NOTE ON CO-OPERATION: At the recent hardware dealers district meeting here, Phil Jacobson, secretary of the association, introduced Mr. and Mrs. John Kohlhaas as new grandparents, because of the recent arrival of Janis Ann in the home of John Jr. . . . whereupon O.

Peterson, another local hardware man, up and passed the cigars for John. i * # * During Ihe recent meal shortage, which seems to have disappeared to some exteiijt now, three local grocers pooled efforts with the result that they took turns driving to Sioux City to get much-coveted meat, and then divided the meat secured for sale in their own stores, which to us was quite unusual . . . engaged in this joint effort were Bill Hood, Ray Beamish and Harold Blinkman. o * * One of our correspondents sent in herj nbws last week with this note, attqihed: "Can't make this '/;[?*&?.'**$ underwater, high altitude pen work very good."

On Friday they stay open until 9 p. m. and on Saturday they close at NOON. We—arid they — don't know whether it's the- 40-hour week that does it, or just that it affords folks a chance to get an early start on Saturdays for their favorite taverns, Wisconsin, being what you might call a "wet" state. * a * Frank Moulton gave us a want ad fop-'a shotgun in one breath and cancelled it in the next, say- Frank, iritldehtalty, showed tiIB Coffee Gulpers earU so w<* knew he'd be-eft tlll'bUgh OchUyedan and seen Chris Reese. .;> * «t Eddie fcefeelia* hs* fceen ihisif&i too, we note in Chris' column, arid he was showing the natives pipe of his.

The pony's name is "Bess" and she was recently acquired for the use of Tommy Hutchison. However, she had been grazing heavily on the Western Buyers acreage up at the Black Cat, and when they brought her into town they discovered that she was too fat for her saddle, and Tommy is too small to ride bareback. In the meanwhile, his whole kindergarten class came over during recess and made a thorough survey of the pony situation and now the tots are dividing up the colts, all of which was something of a surprise to Mrs. Hutchison; and might also be to "Bess." c n v RESEARCH NOTE: We heard a lot of comment, last week, about the several new city ordinances, recently carried in the papers, especially the roller skating rink ordinance . ... quite a few seemed to have read the ordinance (believe it or not) and were wondering if the council was trying to force the new roller rink, now under construction here, out of existence . . . the ordinance called for monthly fees for a license and a special officer on duty, among other things . . . our good friend Doc- Fox, one of the councilman, happened along while Howard Plait was discussing the matter, so we asked Doc about it. Here's the story—roller rink ordinances are in effect practically everywhere there is a roller rink and the fee here is in keeping with license fees at other places; the new rink owner was aware of the ordinance and thinks it is O. K. and the general purpose is to help him to maintain a proper and orderly place where youngsters can enjoy fun and be certain of the right atmosphere and supervision. We're glad that's the way it is. However, while on the subject of ordinances, if you read that new sewer and water connection ordinance you're REALLY reading the paper. * o >ii Well, North Phillips Street mpinlsins its recoi^l of producing bouncing baby boys.
