JUDGE ORAVEN'S RETIREMENT THEY WON THE ROUND ,'. • '•"-' i" - ' ' Aftn6Uiiee^»r»t,madVJ0*t,w«fk that U.S. The Russians seem to have won the latest District Judge Henry N.

And of courie" wtf well realize thaf ability to launch the tonnage into space calls for a combination of genius In both engineering and blending of power-thrust fuel which seems to be the basic necessity of getting off the ground. Yet, just what HAS been accomplished that at this moment amounts to much in the general scheme of things? Nobody is ab|e to step ouf and build a house in space, and all anyone wants after they do get there is to get back again. So far as observation of the world from aloft, our spy-sattelltes are already,doing that via TV In nose cones with transmlttal back to earth. Maybe the day will come when vacation trips are made to the moon, to Mars and other 'distant points. In the meantime, while our goal is to send more and more probing instruments into outer space, we have singularly failed to solve many problems on earth, problems that have been with us a long time. But, the Russians won the round we admit, and yet it makes us wonder if the whole darned thing is as important as it is cracked up to be. — • — ••• — • "»™^» living 11* ^«f%awti wi ^^IWH 19 IJlUlI* ning to retire August 31, at the age of 67, is not a complete surprise, but it is a time for brief comment on a splendid 17-/eoi f record for Judge Graven fh Northern Idwo. He is in excellent health, and has asked to be retained as a senior judge, subject to assignment as needed anywhere in the 0. S. by the chief justice of the Supreme Court, Judge Graven is a native of St. James, Minn., received his bachelor and law degrees at the University of Minnesota, and a doctor of law degree at Capitol University, Columbus, Ohio. He began practice at Greene, and also lived at Mason ,City. He was appointed to the . 12th judicial district bench in 1937 and to the federal bench in 1944. He may^ still continue as a "judge at large." . « He is credited with never having been reversed : as a district judge in the 52 counties of his jurisdiction. A number of names have cropped up as possible successors to Judge Graven, none of them so far listed being from Kossuth County.

Naturally, we all think that is fine, and assume it may somehow or other relieve us of some of the load. We prophesy such would not be the case. There has been much hue and cry about keeping schools under local control, and that in" turn includes financing them. -Federal aid would mean everyone contributes, but from that point on the distribution 1 of funds depends on many factors, none of which the,individual community can control. .-,',, Federal "aid" sounds good, but it is our' belief that it would in no, way. reduce the loca school taxes, and would simply provide addition al millions or billions to be added to the nationa debt and the threat of further inflation that goe with it.

SUBSCRIPTION HATES IN KOSSUTH CO. the Iowa house passed the bill, and are alarmec at the reasoning behind the Iowa Development Commission's backing of the proposal. The latter urged legislators to vote for the bill on the grounds it would prove helpful to Iowa industry. At a time when increasing traffic continues to take its horrible toll on our highways, a plea that some elements of industry might be helped by increasing highway hazards seems an ill-considered and callous one'>indeted. The main provision of the bill is to increase from 50 feet to 60 feet the maximum length of auto transports hauling new cars and trucks and truck combinations hauling boats and farm machinery. Even if the bill remained Imited to those it would be bad enough; however, it could probably be taken for granted that other "interests" would eventually get the added length, too. Passing big trucks is one of the major problems of the amateur driver now. Increasing the length of some of them another ten feet woulc increase the danger considerably beyond tha proportion. Triffic laws are supposed to be designed for the safety of the human race, not for the benefit of industry in a competitive race for more dollars. * * * Evidence has been discovered that at one time some strange people must have lived in this today.

Traditionally, Congress votes only on money v/hich is needed for the current fiscal year. All additional moneys to carry out long- range programs must be approved and appropriated year by year.
