In a real way each of us will be involved with all men everywhere. There are understandably many doubts about this adventure into space. It may be that ,we are, somehow or other, plunging our own world toward oblivion, or bankruptcy, or global and even interplanetary war on a scale that would mean complete destruction for everyone. But we are caught in a flow of events.y/hich we cannot stop. We-have orbited men in space around the world; 'our 'next move will be to launch them toward-other planets. We can qnly hope that somehow this entire dramatic period in space science will somehow bring a better world, and not total disaster. * i '*•'" * " : NOTHING TO BE PRQUD QF On a farm program over'the air, the day, we heard a widely kno,wn leader of.a national farrn orgpnizatipn'tJiscyssing some of his work in 'connection with lobbyingi'.in- Congress HeititetL t a-.*p??ilJ$-'txartpip>$f-.$$$ng- "Senator "from North Dakota"/Who 'indicated he did not-favor',a certain bill .when the lobbyist visited him.

Saturday, March 10, the county 4-H boys ond girls clubs will be guests in Algona, with liub displays in some 45 different local business places. They are welcome guests.

In the 10-year interval from 1950 to 1960, the per capita cost for ALL government expenditures in Kossuth county (local city, local town, local county, local school taxes) ros.e 87.6 percent, according to figures just released by the Iowa Taxpayers Ass'n-for counties in Iowa. The per capita cost of all couny government schools rose an average of 106.9 percent or $562 million. Expenditures for government and school climbed 20 times faster than the population in the state as a whole. As we contemplate the problems of business solvency, operating costs, and why people go somewhere else, the above figures might be worth thinking about. 111 E. Call Street—Ph.
