He was honest and fair in his positron and treated the members of his opposing party as fairly as he dla^he members of his own party. It was this' phildScjbhy' fhat won for him the trust and co-operation of his constituents and all of the members of^congress". He entered cdngress Whert Woodrow Wlfsdn Wds first elected in 1912 and served in "congress during the administration of eight presidents and he became a trusted friend to all of them. .,Tn6 American people are in agreement with President Kennedy when he said, "Sam Rayburn was a great statesman." 0 « »• * A CAUSE FOR CONCERN There is some concern, in Algeria over dUr current business shakeup. . ,' In addition to the several business closirtgS already known, in the past week 6n6 firm ndS made a decision to, discontinue its, dowrtfowrt retail location and operate mord as ",d Service facility from the family home, dfhd dndfher is preparing to cease its local operation and move to Colorado. On the brighter side Wfe understand several inquiries have been made, as to new businesses locally. There are reasons for the present trend, some are .individual with no<; connection at all to any local 'problems', but Others are due primarily to problems of business in general, Where are we making mistakes ? In the course of the past ,week this newspaper has endeavored to inquire along this line, and there dre a number of answers ;:veni some repeated often enough to lend Weiyfir to the replies!

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST tax on three bolts a total of four times? The same example carries over into all lines bf merchandise. And business real estate and property pays the largest propartioridfe Algeria tax. There are, of ebur'se, many changes in re- talllng methsds and public buying patterns,-also taking place: • • The pressure from adjacent cities is heavy; their advertising appeal is strdng. To many business flrrtls In Algeria today, our major problem does not appear to be a matter of expanding the present commercial zone into the residential area, but rather a battle to keep the business places we have at pres ent. Algona has always been a good place to do business. But it would do no harm to reflect iome on whether we ean fmprdve flue <:!v!c image in the public mind. A fouth of fertfeney in parking tickets, smiles o little effected wttll the customers, and a Ifttle rtfleeftdn and thought on ways arid medrfs of presenting fitirselve's-.With prestige In a business sense might be worthwhile. . '* * * ' GIVE PROGRAM A CHANCE Some of the tedders of farm organizations continue to lambast the .new farm program. They still play it up as d ''billion dolldf bust." These crities>dre mostly carryovers from thi'Ben- son eight yedC' era during which time farrtl in- cdrne decreased a.little every year. , * fortunately trie most rabid critic's" are not among the farmers, a few of whdni are governed by political partisanship. Most farmers dre agreed that there has been some improvement for them Under the new program and they are hopeful that more Improvement is in store for them irt the future. They are willing to give the rtew prdgram a fair chance. The critics should be wllflrfg fa do the same. There will be time enough to knock a year from now if-farmers are not doing better by that time than they have in late years. « . * * THE ROVING AMBASSADOR ! Wall Street Journal - GOP National Chairman Miller, it seems to us, is not going to get very far with his charge that the series of White House regional conferences, being held in 12 cities from coast td coast, are illegal, in that they may violate the United States Code section that frowns on "lobbying with appropriated money." &•* *'.' ' . , Nqr do we think that Attorney General Kennedy,-quickly denying the fharge, -is" going ,td' .anybody that ithe.vAdminisfratioh's strolling group of Cabinet members and agency heads are nonpolitical ambassadors. . The traveling conferences, -offering the voice of President Kennedy piped in -b/ phone and postcards on ,which the local folks attending may send suggestions to the President, are clearly providing the Administration with a forum 'for, reminding regional:-audiences what, projects it has sponsored or plans in their localities, or for "getting . , .^.Information' to the people," as the Attorney General calls it. All in all, maybe Mr. Miller is unduly concerned. If the White House conferences help to give the grass roots a clearer idea of the extent and cost of Federal Intrusions in to local affairs, we'd call them a huge success, well worth the taxpayers' money. .« * . * NO ECONOMY HERE? Sheldon Mail - We think the state should go back to its previous system of notifying drivers when their permits are expiring. We have seen no figures on the matter, but it would seem logical to assume that a great many folks forget the renewal time, and are required to go through the extra procedure this results in when they do finally appear. An expert statistician might figure out how much time is consequently wasted for the examiners as well as the citizens and dettrnine if this justifies the economy of not sending < ut notices. It is always a fine thing to see any governmental department attempting »" save money, but there are times when the incw..venience and trouble that can result is considerably more costly in the long run. * * « What we all want is loud praise for a good job, and silent sympathy for a poor job. — Woodbine Twiner ut iht- e has r - ft" or 6ther me* has of aife'.M, i^TwHMWWF', "I ylhg%tmir r *ewned a tfaetbf situatibn, so everyone" had,to suf- washinhtftn /.Pf *,t'i I , ^ ,. . i<. i,* .'.*•!
