•1*$6 '•/ • ,« u ,m Stevenson,,as the Democratic candidate of 1952 who fought the good fight for his party akairist ft popular hero and lost in the presidential race, 5 scorns likely to be the party's candidate in 1956."It seems to us that he should be; he polled more votes than any other Democratic candidate in history for the presidency '— and Still lost. He has beeft the .party standard bearer in the mter- venirife years, 'and as 'time has marched on most of what he said Sri 1952 still stands — he has proved to be something of a prophet. - Vice President Richard Nixon is the logical choice of the Republicans. He seems to have the complete confidence of President Eisenhower, and thus can carry on the tradition of Eisenhower. Nixon also has the backing of much of the conservative element in his party, and polls show that he is considered the best bet outside Of Ike himself. It will make a good lineup for 1956 -Steven- Son versus Nixon, and a representative choice of each party. 9 • - . * • •. *. WHY PRICE SUPPORTS FOR WOOL? Grundy Register — Sinc : e Secretary Benson announced that the government was going to buy 85 million dollars of pork, the price of hogs has been going dowA. Benson expected his pork buying announcement to.push up'the'price of hogs. The effect has been the "reverse. Every effort the secretary has made to strengthen farm prices has backfired. The whole purchase program accounts for less than the number of hogs processed throughout, the country during;any two days. The processors and not the hog raisers are going to get that 85 million dollars of government money. One thing can be said for our agricultural. secretary, -Tie is stubborn and political pressure does not'have much effect on him. He is opposed to rigid price supports and a firm believer in the flexible support theory. There is only one product from the farm of which he is in favor 6f high price supports, and that is wool. That inconsistency can .be Understood when 1 it is explained. that the sec- 'retary comes from Utah where they do not raise hogs but where sheep raising is as important as hog-raising in Iowa. * * . *. While we've had our attention focused so Strongly on'how Peron is corning or going in Argentina,' the Near East has practically slipped away from the western allies and into Russia's orbit. Let's forget Peron and try "to sa7vU6£l&rJrrie- thing before we find 'the eastern end of the. Mediterranean entirely gone over to the only potential enemy we have in the world. * * 4 The way to stay young, the doctors are always telling us, is to have a hobby; whtther it's saving stamps, building Ship models inside bottles or, as in Senator Bricker's case, whittling out little amendments for the Constitution. — Hartford Courant.

THE UPPER DES MQINES PUBLISHING CO. R. B. WALLER, Managing Editor C. S. ER LANDER, Advertising Manager NEWS YOU MAY NOT OTHERWISE READ ,, There have been charges, occasionally, that while our press is free, it has developed into about an 80% "One party press", that party being Republican. It is the privilege of any newspaper to print 'that which it wishes, and to leave out that which it does not choose to print. Very few average readers, however, know just What is left out. Only by reading a variety of papers do you ever find out what one paper omits and another one may print. Here are a few examples: The Administration has pointed with considerable pride at the fact that the total butter in government storage has been reduced. The public has been left with the general idea that the flexible support program for the dairy industry has been responsible for this decrease. Here is how the butter surplus has been reduced, according to Drew Pearson, Washington columnist, whose" columns do not appear in any of the area daily papers. A total of 3,390,750 ibs. of government butter in storage has been sold to candy makers of the nation AT 25. CENTS A POUND. The government through Commodity Credit took this butter in at around 58.25 cent a pound. This is a Brannan plan for'candy manufacturers, but the .manufacturer and not the candy-consuming public gets the benefit. The housewife cannot buy any butter out of government storage for 25 cents a pound, but the candy manufacturer can. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch points this out: When you hear the claim that we now have replaced war inflation with peacetime prosperity, what are the facts? In the first four years of the Truman administration, an average of $14 billion dollars was spent on military security. That was about 5 percent of the gross national production. At the height of the Korean War, in fiscal 1952, we spent $42 billion which was about 12.2 percent of our gross national production. In 1953 and 1954, the first years of the Republican administration', we spent annually $46 billion, the highest amount since World War II and 13 per cent of our gross national production, and in 1955 we are still spending at a rate comparable to the Korean war years. We have not replaced "war i: .' "peacetime prosperity.'! .....

Commissioner of Public Buildings, has also been "feathering his nest" by, helping the engineering firm with which he was associated to get contracts from government agencies, despite a regulation that forbids a conflict between public and private interests. Strobel gets $14,500 in his government job; he still operates his private engineering firm. * We have a free press, but that does not necessarily mean that you, as a reader, get ALL that there is to read — on both sides. There is and has been so much going on within administrative circles these past few years in private gain through government control that it might, if ever fully exposed, make things like Teapot Dome seem comparatively trivial. It certainly makes the gift of a deep freeze or a mink coat look pretty small. The first act of the present Administration, the give-away of the off-shore oil rights, a heritage of the public, cost the people more in one chunk than every bit of dishonesty in government in the preceding 20 years. » S * FEDERAL EMPLOYES GOING UP Grundy Center Register — During the pas year there were 55,000 added to the federal pay roll. There was about a similar increase during th previous year. The republicans during the 1952 presidentia election campaign charged that the democrats had been padding the federal payroll and if they wet- elected the payroll would be substantially de creased. The payroll was decreased, during the fii-sl year of the new administration but since that tune jl has been gradually building up again.- There are now 2,397,000 on the civilian federal payroll and the total amount paid to them now is an all-time- high. In addition to the number of federal employes another 430,000 foreign nationals are paid fror.: federal funds. * * * ' • • Every girl Iqoks for h er dream man, In thp meantime, though, she'jgets.'married. , , hemselves as Republicans an asked: "Here is a list of men who have been mentioned as possible candidates in 1956 for the Republican Party if Eisenhower is definitely not a candidate.
