Cost of the Flood ^ One and three quarters million dollars will be invested by the PMA in flood restoi-a- tion in the Iowa counties of Woodbury, Monona, Harrison, West Pottawattamie. Mills and Freemont. Floods damag-ed more than 300,000 acres of valnable cropland, nearly as much as the amy engineers want permanently for a ffiftantic hydro-elccti'ic dam ]n-o.iect that supposedly would control floods and would supply some power at ti'emendous cost ta the taxi>ayer.s. A PI^IA survey revealed that this is the needed restoration assistance: dikes and drainage ditches, 690 miles; 126 damaged levees; 2,323 miles of damaged fence; $252,000 worth of debris removal: $860,000 worth of silt and sand removal and deep plowing-; $390,000 for restoration of jxis- tures, hay, forage and cover crops, and $235,160 for technical assistance. Floods cost money—more money, perhaps, than to prevent them. To permanently flood more land however, than the floods cover i.s not the proper .solution and that's what would result from huge dam jirojects. Small dams on upper tributaries, better soil jiracticcsand reforestation will turn the trick. The nearly two million dollars allocated for damages in just a few Iowa counties would go fai- in iM'eventing future floods. It is interesting, and appalling, to note that three-fourths of the nation's forest fires occur on 10 per cent of the forested land. The answer is that the 10 per cent ol' land is without adequate fire prevention. On the other 90 per cent industry has reduced fire loi-ses below damage done by insects and tree diseases. Fire prevention counts—even in the woods. The Republicans may as well mark it down now that if they don't nominate a "fighting" candidate for President they may as well save their breath, Mc-tooers like Willkie and Dewey didn't get to base and yet Dewey is trying to influence the 1952 convention. The Republicans need an entirely different type of campaign and campaigner; somebody not afraid of the cars and mouthing something other than "me-tooism." The average person would prefer to be miserable at home rather than in the same condition away from home. Better After Wind Storm Hal Boyle's Notebook Something About Ike^s Mother New York, (/P)—Dwlght Kiscnhowor's mother wns not there when ho came home to AbUene tlie uth- cr day. She haa gone now. The spirit of her, though, the very essence of this woman, is so strong that it breathes from every corner of their home. Indeed, the old house is a perfect self-portrait, something she made and colored forever with the rich, deep shades of personality. Her niece, Mrs. Ray Ethcrington, still lives up the road a way. She calls her "Aunt Ida." "She must have been very strong," I said, "a,-i a person," "She was," Mrs. Ethcrington said. "Of them .il!, Aunt Ida was the most vivid, the dominant one. Of course, you wouldn't think It to look at her." * * * IX THE rilOTOGRAI 'HS of her as a youn- woman, her chin is small and pointed. There is a firmness about her mouth, and yet the faintest .shadow of a smile too. Ker hair Is thick and it looks dark In the picture. In her eyes, there is that same intim- ntion of a smile, something felt rather than seen. Her eyebrows are high and dark, and they give her an arch, knowing e,xpression. This expression must have been very marked on her face when she pretended not to notice that th.' bojT) had taken her bread dough from the old Pennsylvania Dutch dough tray In the kitchen, rolled It into balls and were playing catch behind her back. And all her life she pretended not to recognize the nickname, "Ike," although every one of tho boys—and not Dwight, alone—was known as "Ike' at one time or another. "'Ike?", she would say, sweetly. "Who is Ike?" * * * SHE WAS AN INTENSELY religious woman. Th?

Except for one thing, and this is a thing she would not h.ivo permitted, if she had been there because she never allowed things to lay around. Her wedding dress, of white silk and lace, lies di.ngon- ally across her bed for visitors to see. It is a size 9. She was a small woman. « # !i' YET, SHE MAINTAINED a home for five boys and a man, by herself. She made some of their clothes on the sewing machine in the bedroom, handled the lamily washing, baked her own bread and pies, and stirred up cauldrons of a mysterious dish called "pudding meat." Tho way of making it .seems to have been lost. "And so Aunt Ida never was able to go out very much," says Mrs. Ethcrington. "She was always at home. I don't think she wanted to go away from the house." She had an egg-warming dish in the kitchen, with four holders for the eggs, but she used it to keep her money in. Tho small household expenses wcro paid out of .this dish. "Later in life," her son said, at AbUene, "I learned that we were very poor." They may hav<- lacked for money, at times, but their home was a trj^asure house of good living, of warmth and comfort and books and music—she tried to teach each of the five boys the piano—and especially of a woman's loving care. It is all there today. And so is she. Comblnloc ttUa Vindicator and RtputiUcaa. PubllitMd Ev«ry KvenlnB Except Sunday and Prlncipai UoUdajra.

By VINTON C. ARNOLD Spirit Lake, Jti. — Storms over the past week-end retarded fishing activity in the lake region, but with tho return of good weath- 1 anglers flocked to both the Ok- obojis and Big Spirit In large numbers. Although fishing for walleyed pike tapered after the high winds subsided, fishing in general showed signs of Improvement which was expected. Al Gregerson up at Baker's point reports bullheads biting this week better than at any time this season. Fishermen in that urea have picked up a number of smaller sized northern ptkc, and pan fish, especially perch, were beginning to take the bait Monday and have continued through the week. * « * THE SAME CONDITION pro- vails along the south shore of tho big lake and, since Tuesday, perch fishing is reported good. The only spot where walleyed piko fishing is bringing results is along tho west shore of Big Spirit. Some nic specimens have been toiten there. Throughout the entire lake region, bullhead fishermen are having a field day whenever they choose to drop a line Into tho water. The lower end of East Okoboji and almost every part of West Okobojl are accounting for large catches of the species, anJ tho size of individual fish is said to be somewhat larger than tho average. Ket Kettlcson and fam ily picked up 22 large ones from Ket's dock on Pocahontas Point one evening this week, and a few walleyes arc making their appear ance in the deep water between Pocahontas and Eagle points on West Okobojl. • * * * BAIT FISHERMEN at the Oko­ bojl bridge have caught some good large mouth bass this week still fishing, Mrs. R. A. Boyd of Ashton entered a 3.15 small mouth bass In the "Small Mouth Bass Derby" sponsored by Cap Kennedy of Arnolds Park. The Boyds have been making consistent catches of small mouth in Emerson bay this week. Tex Strlchland of Arnolds Park is making some consistent catches of bass weighing from 2VJ to 3% pounds. Northern pike and crapple seem to be tho order of the day In the Pike's Point area of West Oko­ bojl. These kinds showed activity Sunday and the trend has continued through the week. Walleyes were conspicuous by their absence. However, tho docks along the north bay of West lake are rcc- omntcndcd as spots from which a few walleyes can be taken. Tho ever present bullhead is to bo found in abundance in both areas. • « • FOB NORTHERN PIKE and large mouth bass, the fishermen should not overlook lake MInne washta. Tex Strlchland and some of the other boys around Arnolds Park arc bringing In some good catches from that lake. For the person who wants pan fish and good bullheads. East Ok­ obojl is a good bet, sapeclally from the Narrows as far north as Pep permlnt Point, John Daume of Atlantic, who spends his summers in the local trailer park, seems to have the answers to fishing in East Okobojl. He has located a number of good dpots. He fishes every day or two and comes in regularly with good strings of perch, crappio and bullheads. Night fishermen under dock lights arc taking some good sized perch this week on West Okobojl. Ed Thomoa of Spencer is one of the most successful perch fishermen at night. ,The species appears hungry and the.average fisherman should havo little difficulty catching soi|io nice ones. « «< Si WINNERS IN THE fishing con tost were announced late this week. Mrs. J. Dec Ferguson of South Sioux City, Neb., took both tho ladles' prlzo and the one for tho largest northern pike when she weighed In'an 11.4 specimen. Dan Jensen, veteran Spirit Lako fisherman, came up with a 6.8 walleye to cop tho week's prize, while a 3.15 bass entitled Virginia Campbell of Dos Moines to walk off with the week's winning. Completing tho list Is J. H. Ritchie ot Arnolds Park who weighed In a string of bullheads weighing 14.12 Nam« Bill Dudding Bill Mosser Jack Kaley.
