Of course the hoboes do. not go quite as far as the New Dealers, but fc*r a starfcer thiey seecn to be headed that way. AtMheir -convention at Br'itt a few months ago, they adopted resolutions that sound pretty good. It as tr*ie that the Townsenditers have a good plan'1'or taking care of us but the knights of the road haH-c some ideas that are not. to be sneezed at. / , The hobo platform- calls for: a four hour day pay; free transportation oa railjroffds and-lbusses for four.days a'week; th»*^ moiaths vacation with pensions of'$100-per month for sill over GO/; a five cent glass W beer for a nickle., Some,one has wisely argiied if a 30-hour week, with'as little work being \done as possible, wpiy not u 20-hour week. And if a 20-hour' week iis sound economics, a IG-hourVweek would seem lo be more logical. It is now-suggested that it is silly for any one U) work at\al"l. The United States government is supposed lo.stand all our expenses on borrowed money and\th«e deeper the country, gets into debt according to the" nuctealers, the richer we are. Eureka. It may be tftat we have at last .found the long desired solution'of how to live without work. J- W. H. Who Is Running This Country? That John L. Lewis, the labor boss, has long had his hands on the throat of the United States government, hfis long been apparent to most people who have taken any interest In the trend Of politics in this country. The late President Roosevelt was really responsible for starting the burly labor grafter out oa his career of using the labor unions ns a stepping stone to the control of the country. The late preidenl always showed that he favored the "under dog" by babying labor until it became a stench in the nostrils of many people, some of whom claimed that the "baying" of the huge labor unions was merely because the president in yearning for a long term in the president's chair gave liibor what it wanted in return for its huge block of votes on election day. When Roosevelt refused to sanction Lewis for hjs running mate in 1040, Lewis went over and supported Willkie, but the change wns made too late to give Willkie the office. Now it is openly announced that Lewis is seekjng absolute domination of all American organizations of labor. It is said that his first step now is to defeat democrat candidates in stales and districts where the United Mine Workers are strong. Once his complete domination of labor is achieved, and Lewis thinks that it will take two years to make it, he believes he can dictate to either national political party or to both. Lewis is said to be among (he millionaires of the country, most of it coming from the sweat and toil of honest working men, who it seems, have blindly followed him in his cxhorbitant demands for his coal miners, who at one time were poorly paid. But an ordinary miner now is paid more than many bank presidents. A cowardly administration and a more cowardly congress have so far Tailed to curb the raids 'on the consumers of the country made by the labor brigands. It has now come to the point where to prevent the strangle hold that Lewis has on the •industries of the country that something must be done, and soon. It is now known to all that Lewis by a wave of his hand may slop practically all of the big industries of the country and throw hundreds of thousands of laboring men out of employment. To most intents and purposes the whole country is now at the mercy- of a labor brigand. Congress and the president through fear of the labor vote have submitted to most, if not all things that Lewis has asked, and we hope that there will be many new faces around Washington in the near future who will refuse to turn the interests of the people over to a labor racketeer. J. W. H. Iowa no longer cam afford to reap the harvest of crime that has been sowed at Elrtora by unwise economizing over the last several years.—Cedar Rapids Gazette. , One Iowa editor doesn't think much of air travel. He says: If 1 is all very well to talk of the safety of air travel, but the fact remains that no man who leaver the ground in an airplane has assurance of returning 1 safe and sound. He may or he may not. The element of risk, far greater than in ground travel, is always present*. Phoney Stock Prices That Hereford yearling steer that sold for $44,375 at the fine slock show at Kansas City last •v/eek, suggests to u.s thai the peck of the inflalion may have arrived, and lhal Ihere may be a lot of hocum in the ridiculous prices supposedly being paid. The whole thins sounds phoney to us. The boy who raised the Hereford steer is still gasping for -breath in receiving such a phoney figure (if ho did) for his calf, and government took from him in taxes something over $19,000. It is said that the Williams meat company of Kansas City who paid Ihe big price, would sell the meat from the animal to its customers for table use. II is figured lhal Ihis price would make a T-bono slealc cosl in Ihe neighborhood of $75. These silly prices smack of hog prices of 25 years ago in Kossuth county, when a yearling boar pig was supposed to have brought over $25,000 at auction. A little investigalion showed lhal Ihe price was a frame-up between some of the breeders of pedigreed hogs, who agreed to buy each other's hogs placing the figures high for Ihe purpose of making suckers pay ridiculous prices for pigs which when Ihe scheme was discovered a short time afterwards, sold for a $100 or so. These phoney prices do not last long and should be frowned on by honest stock raisers. J. W. H. What Ihe boys on Ihe slrect are wondering is now that we don't have Ihe world series, Ihe Nazis being tried and hanged, or whether to decontrol meal or nol lo lalk about, what will we do .for our daily dish of stimulation via daily papers and the radio.

AWiONA, IOWA ,«ix*x*WJS»WW' ^ One of our scouts tells us a be* latod fishing story . . . seems that Roy Chrislensen, Chet Williams Joel Herbst and one or two others after a successful expedition had deposited the catch in a large, well-worn net, which was attach eel to the side of the boat while they went back in to shore . . . when they arrived on the beach they found that the bottom of the net had given up the ghost and separated, with the result that all of their fine fish were gone. 1.1 1.1 4 Reports are that Don Hemmingsen likes gravy made with powdered sugar . . .

If that fellow is still playing football on the Wisconsin team after an interval of 26 years he deserves real credit. * * * Speaking of college football, when do you suppose Ned Brant will graduate from Carter? * 8 * Our private wire says that the chances are slim for Congress extending Selective Service be- HONOR LONE ROCK BRIDE AT SHOWER Lone Rock: A miscellaneous shower was held Wednesday evening in honor of Mrs. Jim Walker nee Ruth Kraft, at the Lone Rock church parlors.
