The two parties will race each 'other to come up with the' best .and the first program, .President Eisenhower is apt to _ find himself looking at two farm bills both of which may be distasteful to him and Secretary Benson.if they continue to refuse to act. ;.-•'.In the meantime a new and refreshing idea has been advanced of late. Bob Blue mentioned it in his talk at Rotary last week and !Otto Knud; sen has advanced it in his column this past two weeks. .. • . . i j • : The new idea is that farmers should do something for themselves, rather than wait for politicians 'to do it'. They have the organizational; set up to do'it if they can get the unity of action needed to carry out a marketing'control program. Spencer Smith, Jr. had ^ the idea Way' last summer and He sounded ou^ friends and neighbors to see if they could get a meeting of just actual farmers (those doing the work and depending on their work for a living) to come to a meeting and talk, over their problems. It was hoped • that out of the meeting might come a concrete idea that, could be passed on to the Farm Bureau or the Extension service in the form of a resolution from farmers.

News — Writing in the American Magazine, Senator Byrd has- this to* say about federal spending: "Sometimes, you-may* get the discouraged feeling that forces are .now loose in the growth of the federal octopus that are beyond, the power of mere man to halt. > _ / "I say they can be halted, and reversed . >•: But I might as well warn that it will be done only if you, the taxpayers, make your sentiment? known. Make them known to friends. And \ make them known to elected officials. You can b,e more powerful.than you realize./Elected Officials generally are eager to do what they feel the public wants. The trouble is that the only 'public' they hear from consists of the 'gimme' group which camp in their anterooms." If we can't balance the budget in a time of •booming business and enormous tax collections, when can it be balanced? » * * "RETIRING" TO WHITE HOUSE Grundy Register — One of life's current ironies: An increasing number of persons sur- orisingly enough all of the same political party, are now convinced that it would be a lot easier on President Eisenhower's heart during the next four years to spend his time in the White House than it would be to be loafing around on his farm at Gettysburg. But currently, while the President is still recovering from his coronary, everyone seems agreed that he's better off at Gettysburg than he is at Washington. Another bit of irony is the fact that the new cure for coronary — running for and serving four more years in the world's top job—became more popular when the returns from the off-year elections came in froiri Indiana, New Jersey and certain other spates. » * * Exchange — William Nicholas from Mason City is the first ty throw his hat in the ring for state of(lcd. He is asking for his old job back as lieutenant governor- He was twice a candidate for governor, but fell short both times. His wide acquaintance throughout the state should be an advantage in his campaign for the nomination next June.

This is open season—the Presidential election year. The politicians are building up steam around the .tonsils. The teletypes on the Hill are sreased to spew out 'the hottest flow of phrases in decades... On the sober side, the year 1-956 may be THE crucial "year in the atomic buildup between the' West and the Reds, . And this will probably be the year, too, when more money will be spent—or allocated, at least— m highways than every before in history—and more money shelled nut for school construction. And perhaps for health research, too. In fact, more money will probably be spent this year—Including funds for our • peace-time military—than any other time in our government's history. At least the congressmen will spend thousands of Congressional Record dollars talking about it. They'll be talking about it in the same breath -with balancing the budget and giving income tax cuts to every voter. What else would you expect 9 This is election year ...

They know that 'learning and the basis for learning to think go on continually from the time the child is bol-n, and that home and parents have a great responsibility and privilege in the guidance of children. Psychologists agree that when w'e are faced wiih an unfamiliar situation, we may learn something. We may learn to think, depending on several attendant factors. What • are the situations confronting a child from which, he may learn to think? Obviously, they are too many to number, beginning with the baby who may be creeping and lose his ball under the davenport, up to the child of ten or eleven who is learning to ski or skate or play ball with a group of other children: Thinking is learned by doing things. We want our'child, to learn how to take turns, to be able to get along with other children, to be willing to give up his own way of doing things sometimes, or at other times to stand up for his point of view. And his thinking in all of this cannot be done in a vacuum.
