' LETTERS TO THE EDITOR SET RECORD STRAIGHT So as to set the record straight, I feel I must reply to Mr. Strautfs letter in your issue of Aug. 1. Mr. Straub should know that you cannot believe everything you read and I would suggest he get the facts before commenting. The news release which went to all news media stated clearly that Congressman Mayne's representative, Milo Brabec, would be at the Kossuth County Fair on Tuesday, Aug. 15. The Congressman can hardly be held responsible for the other people's errors. It is certainly very gracious of Mr. Straub to offer to take up a collection to purchase a desk calendar for our Congressman. I presume a pretty good one could be secured for 2 or 3 dollars. We are sorry to know that the Democratic treasury is so low that a collection for this purpose is necessary. Yes, Mr." Mayne does represent everyone in the district — Democrats and Republicans alike. I believe most citizens are glad he stays on the job in Washington during these crucial times to represent not only his district, but all the people in Iowa and the nation. We want him in Washington where the action is. Not out here building political fences at taxpayers'expense. Sincerely, C. R. Schoby Kossuth County Republican Chmn.
