1-Atflana (la.) Upper D« Molh* Thursday, California Paper Offers Nixon Advice (Long Beach, Calif,, Independent) Last week Richard Nixon replied to former _... Goodwin J. Knight's eharbe that an emissary 6f the former vice president had offered 'Knight any appointive Office in the state if Knight would withdraw from the governor's race. Nixon's reply was a flat denial. He did not even suggest that possibly some friend, without his knowledge or instruction, had made the call to Knight. « This rates as Inept handing for a man reputedly skilled In polities, and certainly experienced in it. For former Gov. Knight is a man , of established Integrity and It is apparent that he had received a call. (The former governor, in fact, has good witnesses to support his story.) It would have been fair to an opponent — always a campaign virtue — at least to have guessed at a plausible explanation. But Mr. Nixon then made 'another blooper. He declared that Knight's statement was "false and libelous" and went on to;say: "I demand that every newspaper and television and radio station which carried this charge publish a retraction." , Here, again, a more prudent handling was Obviously available. He knew that every news agency, because it was news and because it was fair to do so, would quote Nixon's denial: and that could have.been "hoped for" without offense. But demand for retraction is another In Caljfornia, a retraction demand is the usual preliminary to a libel suit. Failure to make a requested retraction opens the door to additional, punitive damages against the publisher if a libel suit is upheld in court. •'•. Moreover, there is a practical aspect that makes the suggestion'of a retraction absurd. It was one man's word against another. After a retraction for Nixon, it would be as logical for Knighr, v Who had been publicly ;accused of making a false and libelous statement, to demand" a retraction. It's easy to see how the coverage of a spirited political campaign could soon require a daily-budget of retractions for bojli'; sides, one offsetting the other; with the whole * thing becoming meaningless.' ; ; According to a quick survey> not necessarily complete, made by United Press IpternatipnqjA < no radio station, no columnist and rfe^o^^pppisr 1 '•;', has yet acced'ed to Mr.* Nixon's damand one) published a retraction. ' This tosses the ball back to Mr. Nixon. ,t If he really believes ,he has been libeled, he should sue the entire press, radio and. television industries in the United States. The other alternative would be to apolo- • gize for a display of ill temper and an implication that the free press has abused its power by reporting fully and honestly the details of a political campaign. Meanwhile, Mr. Nixon's friends should pray, that more skill be exhibited in the handling of other critical situations certain to deve« lop in a heated campaign. The beginning was not auspicious. * . * * BEWARE OF SUPER PATRIOTS Amery (Wis.) Free Press — This has been recognized for many years as the era of the colos-< sal, stupendous and terrific. To these superlatives we would likd to add two words as classic to this generation. We would rartd "super" and "Ultr'a" J aloncjside-the others: ,' • To make your mark in many circles today one must be either a super patriot or an ultra .conservative. The most popular indoor sport at the moment is to combine the two and join the popular theme of. "America First" front of some years ago.'Yes, you 'are really up with the times if you can 'condemn the spending ;of money by government and brand anyone, who turns a liberal hair as a Communist. Harry Golden, noted Jewish Writer, recently called Americans to beware of the super patriots, citing them as a much greater danger than a demagogue. He called attention to experiences ih past history of this nature and, for oUr money, made his point rather emphatically. There is an ever-present danger that super patriotism may lead to the very breakdown of our freedoms that we are supposedly so zealously defending. Probablyione of the prize exam-l pies of this very thing occurred in Germany in the early days of Hitler. It was this very misguided patriotism that implemented his foothold and the establishment of the Third Reich. To create suspicions and to cause each American to suspect the motives of. his neighbor (or his clergyman) means that as a nation we will be so Weakened from within that our image in world affairs will shrink and eventually cause our downfall as a leading power of the world. Don't misunderstand our reference to being an ultra conservative; that is to say, if you are, honestly so'constituted. Even a conservative recognizes that certain humanitarian advances are necessarily the responsibility of government and must be paid for through federal channels. It is the sh'allow-thihking person who can see his own little niche in this.big world and is entirely Oblivious of the wants-and needs of mankind that,y/e,fear in positions of power. ; lncident 'it mayljie Interesting fo^note' hereHrjpt" (J6v rnerit'(s ; "for the""j3eople a'nd'"'by'th ; V-'people, other words, we,,the people, are"government so let's not be so free in condemning 'ourselves tit every-turn of the road I 111 E.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST NEVER TO LATE ',' The recent announcement that Lester Gillette of Fostoria, and his wife, have enrolled as students at the University of Arizona,'-partially because a physician recommended the Arizona climate for Mrs. Gillette's health, is a loss'to Iowa.. . i *«fc. Mr. Gllette had been prominently mentioned as potential candiate for Congress from the new sixth district. He had served ably in the state legislature as a senator, and on the Board of Regents for state educational institutions. At the age of 69, he is taking up the study of law at the University of Arizona, and Mrs. Gillette has enrolled as a student of history and horticulture. Neither expects to use the education in the usual sense of the word. But it is interesting to find two folks past middle age whose thirst for knowledge is still unquenched, and who refuse to approach old age as doddering, feeble individuals in either a physical or intellectual sense. To both, it is never too late to learn more. A salute to a fine couple; it is most certainly Iowa's loss. » * * COMPUTER SHORT CHANGES We are all being conditioned to a world in which computing machines take the place of human thinking and ability, so it is with some pleasure that we note a computer, too, is not infallible. Seems that in the city of Alexandra, Va f they use a computer to figure out the pay checks for city employees. The computer, last week, failed to allow for tax exemptions and charged the maximum tax off against all city employees, so that their pay checks were all considerably less-than correct. Naturally, the city employees soon .discovered something was wrong. So did the city officials. They found that there was a loose wire in the computer. Nothing wrong with using computers, but even there somebody will have to see that all the wires are properly connected. YOUR ADVERTISING MESSAGE . . . ...

Nina • Khrushchev is going to talk to Nikita about all those nasty bombs .he has? ; been: testing. : , We hope those American "peace marchers" who talked with Mrs. Khrushchev won' taken in, however. I saw Mrs. Khrushchev at close range ; -when she and her husband-visited the United States a coUple of years ago. She has a. sweet, motherly look about her and strikes one as a,person who couldn't possibly be part of the vicious tyranny associated with Russian Communism. Let us not forget that she is married to Mr. Communism him- helf. It is unlikely that she does not subscribe whole heartedly to the system which her husband controls with an iron fist. ' • I would personally take with several grains of salt her comment to the "peace mar.chers"' that she really knows nothing about all the nuclear bombs Russia has; been testing. If my wife were as*-, badly informed about i what is going on I would begin] '*'* J -'*•"»•*" "about I her -, ability to| Ss mother- and- house-! wife. Since we don't know what goes" on in the Khrushchev household it could be that Nina is telling the truth. Maybe Nikita is one of those husbands who bur ies his head in a newspaper and won't .talk to Mama. He certainly looks like one of 'those "don't bother me with silly questions" type of people'. ' At any rate, the "peace marchers" pleaded with Mrs. K. to tell her husband of the very deep concern they feel over the Russian bomb testing. She said she would do so. I can't believe that Mrs. Khrushchev will get very far, though. Nikita knows full well the whole world is worried about these tests and he could stop them if he wanted to. But this is part of the big bully routine that, he carries out so cleverly. bragging because that seems to impress people. ,• i am hot at all Sure but that a lot of Americans are prepared to throw in the towel as s far as West Berlin is concerned.' They forget that we have taken a stand there as a matter of principle and that to yield is to court even further trouble. from the Communists. ";• ; ' . Even assuming that we would agree to pull out,of West Berlin this would not end;our problems with Russia. They "would Immediately create new West Berlins in other parts of the world. This is all part of the grand strategy. Even now while we are focusing attention on Berlin the Soviets are hard at work creating new trouble .spots. So there is a lot Nina Khrushchev can tell Nikita if she feels s.o inclined. But this isn't the kind Of talk he respects, even coming from Nina. He understands only a language that is spelled out in terms of planes, guns;'tanks and'manpower. In 'other' words, if we talk turkey fte'ir'get the message completely. ,. More than 1,000 Afrierlean <Le. giort artd Legion Auxiliary -mem 1 - bers wefe .expected In Algona Thursday for a one-day confer* enee of the eighth district. Many state leaders of the two groups were slated to attend the sessions. John Kohlhaas and 'Mrs, Ted Larson were commander, of the Legion and president of the Auxiliary, respectively. The evening banquet was to be held in St. 'Cecelia's Academy hall. Ten corn huskers had entered the annual Kossuth County Com Husking Contest, .which was tb be held on the Mike Loss farm southwest of Algona. The 1940 champion, Ernest Heidecker, Lakota, planned to defend' 'his title.

You wouldn't want to commit yourselfl this early because by the ttete the dance foils around, you may like two of three other boys. • - , Relax for at least two full months and then let-fthe word drift \around among your Mends that you would like to go to,.the dance but haven't as yet been asked. Dsa* Dans I don't date on my boy friend while he's away in service for six months but I don't,see any harm in having a soda with a boy after school or'even riding around town with some boys and girls, do you? * My steady heard I had been doing some riding like this (In the daylight), and told me I couldn't do it anymore if I still wanted to go with him.;Is this fair of him? — Not Trusted. Iteaa Not Tnts&di When a boy and girl go steady, they usually have the understanding that they won't date others. However, when one of them steps out of the picture for a number of months, adjustments should be made.' ' ' ' , Apparently you don't mind not dating other boys while your steady is away and while,! think you're only cutting off your own nose, if ..that's your agreement, live up,to It. ' 1 • This business of not having a soda or taking a ride with a mixed sgroupMs something else again. The'next step would be your orders not •to talk to other boys. T personally think your boy friend is'asking for ' too much of a restriction. I also thing you're silly if you agree to his orders. > Dear Dan: My friends told me this girl in my room like me and when I phoned her last night-all she did was hang up oh me when she found out who 1 was. Does this mean she does,like me?> — Anxious. Dear Anxious: Considering your age, which must be thfet: of a sixth or.seventh-grader, the girl's, hanging\up on you is about as good a sign as any.

There is authorized, for sale and issuance by the corporation Ten Thousand Dollars (110,000,00) of Capital Stock In, the Corporation.

In other words, Russia acts and we react. This, pf course, places the United States as a serious disadvantage. This js not to imply that we also should engage in "sworcf rattling." Not by any means. But we have failed to emphasifcp not only to Russia but to our own people and our'allies that we too, carry a big stick.
