January 5, 1962 ,•'*'* * LOST ADVERTISING HARfcAN NEWS-ADVERTISER - If a million advertisements were printed and none of them get into the home, then none of them are advertisements. Just pieces of paper. It is not an advertisement until it gets into the home and until it is presented to the customer. Several things are necessary for the advertisement to get to. the customer. It must get into the home. Newspaper advertising waits for the customer if she is nq.t at home. It must be there when the customer has >ime and is in the mood to receive it. The news- peper stays in the home until it is read. The advertiser's job is not complete until what he has to say enters the brain ofthe customer. That is what he started out to do, and when the advertisement fails anywhere along the way it is entirely lost, never to recover. Newspaper advertising is the most economical because it gets "READ" and not thrown away as much junk mail is. You get in the home - what you pay for. * * * The only exercise some people get is jump- tng to conclusions, running down friends, sidestepping responsibility and pushing their luck.

WALLER, Editor & Publisher DON SMITH, News Editor MERLE PRATT, Advertising Mgr. JACK PURCELL. Foreman a a campaign to uncover all the facts ou ou,*ne aeve.opment of Cuba as a common- ,sr Dase, 90 miles from the American mainland. Tne untold story of Cuba-front state^department encouragement ot tne political fortune, or the self-proclaimed 'Marxist-Leninist, Fidel Castro, to tne fiasco of the freedom invasion last April - is of paramount importance to every American, regaraless ot party. Cuba could be developed into a major issue by rj.ckenloopers Republican party, if he has the will and courage 10 ^Hickenlooper was at Punta Del EsJ in Uruauary where he was in a position to learn at rTrst nand how three of,the Kennedy administration's bright young intellectsIs ''worked behind the back of Secretary of.State D^an Rusk to weaken the American position. The three are Walt Whitman Rostov/, the former economics professor, who was making his first visit to Latin America but that didn't keep him from .knowing everything; Arthur Schlesinger Jr., the former Harvard 'historian, who may be wrong but knows he's wonderful, and Richard N. Goodwin, the 30-year-old Harvard law graduate* who made his first, and brief, visit to Latin America last year after he was designated an expert on the Americas. ^ HE SEES IT ALL, AND COULD FIGHT IT While Rusk was fishing for a strong line with the 20 billion dollar Alliance for Progress program as bait, the trio were busy telling| Latin American diplomats that Rusk would settle fo less than he asked. Latin diplomats here repor the trio gave the impression -that they favored going easy on Castro with the result that six of the top nations south of the border, al friendly to the Unite'd States^ - refused to -go along on a strong line. These nations are Brazil, Argentina, Mexico; Chile, Bolivia, 'and Ecuador. The United States didn't get much for the 20 billions ,t proposes to spend in five years. Hickenlooper, who was not part of the sott sell, was in a position to see it all. As head ot the Senate Republican policy committee, he is in a position to do something about making it a party issue in the Senate. And, furthermore, he is a member of the Senate foreign relations committee, where he could interrogate and lead a battle against th pending confirmation of Goodwin as undersecretary of state for Lotion American affairs. Goodwin is open to challenge on grounds of inexperience and youth as well as his role at Punta del Este. A LONG CASE OF BATTLE FATIGUE No sooner is one burning issue disposed of in this great Capital City than another crops up to take ment of Health, Education and Welfare. In other words issue, just now reaching the boiling point, involves- President Kennedy's plan to ere- ate a special department of urban affairs. In other words, an „„ Congress under the Reorganization Act of 1949. This means it is a privileged matter and cannot be prevented from reaching the House floor for a vote by the Rules 'Committee. Algona JayCees sold $32,000 worth of bonds artd defense stamps dur-i ing their "Build A Bona Day" here Thursday. Another big draft registration was held Tuesday, and up to press time, 844 more prospective soldiers, sailors and marines living in the county had signed up. Two dozen area women assisted the draft board as typists and clerks during the day. A Victory Book Campaign, which had been going on for several weeks, closed Saturday night, and a total of 2243 books were donated by county residents. The books were to be sent to various service centers. Titonka residents topped the list when they turned in more than 200 books during ^the Campaign.

The arguments are good on both Those who believe that this new government • office is necessary point out that the number of Americans who live in urban areas is far greater than those who live in rural sections. Rural Americans are represented by the huge, sprawling Department of Ag- •iculture. But their city cousins have -no' such department to jandle their needs. On the other side of the coin here is the question of how much >igger should the Federal Government be allowed to grow. Many are convinced it has already grown beyond the point of all reason. „ • • The proponents have made the argument that this new department will cost no more money and t will possess no new Federal wwers. Well, seeing is believing, t is impossible to create anything n Washington that does not involve money and that does not live some-bureaucrat the right to extend a bit more control over the lives of all of us. on LUC i^uov, floor. And here is where the .embarrassment comes The President has already indicated that he will appoint Housing Administrator Robert Weaver to head up the new department. Mr. Weaver is a Negro. If the Republicans vote against the proposal the Democrats will claim racial discrimination. This will appeal to millions of Negro voters. On the same hand, the Democrats will claim the Republicans voted against all city people by refusing Sid'give them a department to serve 'their needs. -This is the Washington merry- go-round. All it costs to ride is money. ! ONE-IN-MILLION The one-in-a-million perfect crib- baee hand, counting 29, was held recently by Jim Volk of Waverly. Volk held three 5's and a Jack in his hand and cut the fourth five in the same suit as his Jack. ;2, who navy. ^ Carson Johnson, who was employed by a Goldfield man, John Henry, walked nine miles to town Monday to register with the draft board as an alien. He reported having no luck trying to "thumb" a. ride, so he hoofed it. He gave no indication whether or not he had taken out citizenship papers, and the man, who was born in Holland in 1899 and after registering apparently walked the nine miles back home.

He has no personal political incentive to lead a fight, since he is regarded as a.shoo-in in November Besides, he is suffering from one of the longest cases of battle fatigue in the Senate Early in his Senate service, which began in 1945 Hickenlooper led a fight against David E. Lih ei.thal, former Tennessee Valley Authority chairman, and lost. He has never fully recovered from the wounds he Buffered, so that he has never led the van of any battle since that defeat. Early this year he was thrust into a contest to succeed the late and vigorous Sen. Styles Bridges of New Hampshire, G. O. P. policy committee chairman, with S,en. Leverett Saltpnstall of Massachusetts, another slow motion fighter. The contest was described by a veteran observer of the Capitol hill scene as a struggle between two jello-breathing reluctant dragons. Communism as an issue has been bewitched, bothered and bewildered by organized confusion. But communism in Cuba is a vital issue if only Hicenlooper will choose to make it so. * * . * Evidence has been discovered that at one time some strange people must have lived in this country. Historians have dug up evidence of a race of people who lived at home, paid their bills, and spanked their children when they needed it. - Odebolt Chrpnicle A popular Washington joke is that this is just the beginning of a whole series of new departments to meet every possible need. If there is to be a department for the city folk and the country folk why not for the people in between —the suburbanites? Or one for mothers-in-law, veterans, bachelors and retired bricklayers?

They are that it will lay the groundwork for the Federal government to move in on such purely local matters as crime prevention, fire protection, air pollution and many other city problems that should be solved at the city level.
