But we imagine that in the slower past a great many crises sprang up and died a- borning, without the general population of the World ever hearing of them. >The flag-flying at Centerville is also intended as "on acknowledgment that the world situation 'puts an .emphasis on the need for patriotism." This sounds very'good to us, but doesn't Centerville know that a great many of the international thinkers have decided that patriotism-may be good for every little johnny- torhe-lately country in the world — but not for us? THE PEACE CORPS ' "•' Most of the press and a bulk of the nation's leading opinion writers have taken a cool view of the proposal for, and establishments of, a "Peace Corps." Despite an .initial heavy favorable-response from all parts of oUr society, certain groups have' seemed intent to stifle the sions ot the world scenes, his succes>;in gaining wnat he wants from Congress should not be overlooked. The Kennedy, domestic program has arawn much more support than anyone though possible a tew montns back, and before congress adjourns this fall a major part of it wi! be written into the -statute books.' Already Congress has fenacted measures providing for aid to depressed areas'and'new'arid higher pensions ror older folks, two things that were nigh on Kennedy's campaign promises. It has also tallowed, the New.:President's reommenda tions towards granting more 1 money 4 or unem- ploymen,t compensation pay, increasing the minimum wqge and placing more persons under the coverage of that law, and. provided for aid to children of jobless workers. Early in the session the emergency feed- grain program i was passed, giving us a'farm bill for this year.

Already approved is a bill creating 73 new; -federal judgeships, one of which is in Iowa. Before congress adjourns, probably about 60 days from now, a good many other Kennedy-backed proposals are likely to be enacted. By the time the session is completed we will see most of his major campaign goals fulfilled to at least some degree. Uppcr PCS Cornea 111 E. Call Street-Ph. CY 4-3535-Algona.

OFFICIAL CJTY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST YOUR ADVERTISING MESSAGE . . . Lyon County Reporter — Abraham Ribicoff secretary of health, education and welfare, came up with what we think is a mighty sound idea last week. He suggested that some changes should be made in the child labor laws — and we certainly agree. By law it is impossible for a youth to hold a job until he is at least 16 or more. It is a silly law — and should be changed. From 12 to 16 is the formative age for young boys. If they get started off on the right foot, they'll probably get along fine the rest of their lives. If they get into bad habits, start running with a "gang" it is too late, when they get to be sixteen or eighteen, to do much about it. We never knew of any youngsters being hurt by having a job—we have known of lot* and lots of young men who have bepn helped, The beginner on any job with a future has a lot to learn and for the first year or so he is a burden on "the boss". Youngsters can work, receive small pay, and learn. Unfortunately when they get to be sixteen or eighteen they figure they are worth men's wages, and they want top pay to learn — as a result more and more machines are replacing more and more untrained men. We don't suggest that the boys be ojlowed to work at dangerous jobs — or for long hours, But they ought to be able to have a job', start learning a trade, and be given something son- structive to do. Mr- Ribicoff certainly has the right idea. the local community.
