2-AI0ona (lo.) Uppif B«* M«in« Tuesday, June M, 1956 THE PRESfDINT'S HEALTH As a result of President Eisenhower's hospital confinement due to an inflammation of the lower part of the small intestine, there cannot help but again be raised the question of his health as it involves an election year. The most worried comments have come from the members of his own party, some of whom are counting on the President's great popularity to keep or put them into office. For most of us, the chief matter of concern is the real state of the President's health, and it is reassuring to know that the consulting physicians do not consider the attack of ileitis as dangerous, although it can be serious with anyone, whether they be 35 or 65. There is no connection between an earlier heart attack and the present intestinal inflammation, and only the evening before the current illness developed the president was guest of honor at a press photographer's banquet, and appeared in as fit a condition as anyone has ever seen him since he took office. Yet, a second siege of illness, is bound to have its political repercussions and create a whole new field of discussion on the subject of health. To our mind, it has always seemed to us that if Ike felt that he was unable from the standpoint of health to stand the strain of another presidential campaign and four more years in office, he would not be a candidate. After his heart attack, it appeared at first that he would not again be a candidate. His strong recovery from the heart attack, however, changed the picture. Ike made no snap decision when he again decided to run; he did so after awaiting the outcome of a convalescence period, and only after strong assurances that his heart had recovered completely from the attack. The present illness, according to the doctors, is not in the same serious category of the heart attack. It would seem to us that the same principles will apply with the President now that did before; if there is any question about his health or his ability to tackle a second term, he alone will make the decision, and based on his record to date it should and will be a fair one, not only to himself but to his country. It is only natural that a discussion of his condition of health will take place. And it is equally reasonable to believe thdt whatever the decision after the present hospitalization iis Jcom- pleted, it will be a sound and fair one. In the meantime, Americans everywhere /oin in wishing him a speedy and complete recovery. i Clipper PITS 111 E.

ADVERTISING RATES Display Advertising, per inch __ _ 63c OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER REDUCING MILITARY MASSES The current dove-like approach of Russian leaders to the subject of military strength is indeed interesting, and most of the nations Outside of Russia's satellites are listening wtih careful attention, but with a wary attitude, including the United States. Russia recently announced a reduction in its own military personnel total. This sounded fine. Yet a closer study showed that despite the proposed cut — and assuming that it took place — Russia still had many more men under arms than did members of NATO for example. Added to this, at least as the present world lineup stands, could be the forces of China and the Russian satellite countries. And it now appears that maybe Tito and Yugoslavia could be included in that total. Perhaps the older concept of military action involving masses of men is getting more obso- I lete with every new invention. It would certainly be nice to whittle down the grand total of men in uniform, and the vast amounts of money that have to be spent to keep a military establishment alive and powerful. But Russia's behavior since the end of World War II has not been one to completely lull everyone else to sleep. We hope the Russians mean what they are saying and would like to join in a gradual veering away from an armaments race and the continual maintenance of large manpower units in uniform. But it is just a little too soon in the game to adopt the attitude that they really mean it this time. * * * SOMETHING OF SHOCK Iowa Falls Citizen — There has been a little bit of feeling on the part of some urban people at least that the decline in farm income was more in the headlines and in farmer's minds than it was as a matter of fact. People who may be in some doubt as to the reality of the decline in farm income should take a. second look at the report issued by the Towa State College Agricultural Foundation on the operation of its eight farms. The report, just released, shows that the net operating income per farm on these declined 66 percent in 1955. This is the difference between cash sales over cash expenses. On an inventory' or accrual basis of accounting, the net income showed an even sharper drop because of the low prices of livestock and grain at the year's end as compared with the prices the year before. On an inventory or accrual basis all farms except two operated in the red. In some ways these foundation farms "hurt worse" than average farms in the state. That is true because for the most part these are heavy livestock farms and livestock prices suffered a sharper decline during 1955 than did cash grain prices. Nevertheless these farms did have the advantage of the best suggestions which the college farm manager could suggest. Consequently, the figures are of some real consequence and should leave no doubt in anyone's mind but what the price declines which have hit agriculture in the last year or two are very real indeed. * * * WOMEN HOLD THIRD OF NON-FARM JOBS Waterloo Courier: Greatest sociological development of the past 15 years has been the astonishing increase in the proportion of women holding jobs. Back in 1940 women in the working force totaled 14 million. Today, according to Fortune Magazine, the total is 21 million. Thus employed women have increased almost 50 per cent in the period, while male employment has increased only 7 percent. One out of every three non-farm workers is now a woman. It is probably difficult for the modern woman to grasp the significance of such a change. A century ago virtually the only "career" open to a woman was marriage and home-making. Since employment opportunities were virtually nonexistent, this situation made the woman almost totally dependent on her husband. Divorce was not only considered morally reprehensible; it was also, for the woman, ;i sentence to the economic graveyard. Today, however, job opportunities fur women do more* to create equality of the sexes than all the philosophical dissertations on women's rights ever written. For a measure o!' economic equality contributes substantially to equality of hiatus in the family. Isolated oockets of American opinion continue to hold that "woman's place is in the home": but the statistics prove that it is a dying belief.

President Eisenhower of late has been going all out to prove not only to the people but to himself that lie can take it physically. He's apparently succeeding, too. Example: On May 24, after a tight, full-day schedule that began at 8 a.m., he attended the White House Correspondents Association dinner and didn't leave until 10:50 p.m. He was up shortly after 5 the next morning, flew to Waco, Tex., for a parade and speech. He flew back, then on to Gettysburg where he played 27, yes 27, holes of golf. The President's closest friends point out that this is almost a killing pace for a man who.has not had a heart attack. President Eisenhower seems to thrive on it... , fl —.-!.• DEMOCRATIC N O M I N E ES.

HIGHWAY SQUABBLES. Now that some $50 billions in highways are to be built the next generation, mostly with federal money, there's plenty of friction ahead, legislators say. They refer to squabbling expected among states who feel they should have more new federal roads than the budget allots them. THREE NEBRASKANS. Close advisors to President Eisenhower say the president went through one of his toughest mental tur- moils in making the selection for secretary of interior. The choice was among three devoted Ncbrask;ms— Vi:l Peterson, civil defense head; Clarence Dai'is, assistant secretary of interior, and Fred Seaton, former Nebraska senator. In selecting Seaton, Ike stipulated that Seaton offer t;i keep Davis as interior assistant. St-a- tun did. —o— MISCELLANY.

We couldn't blame Vic it he sent the gentleman a dozen bear-traps and a butterfly-net together with a note reading: "Capture my share of said mood with these! Tie securely and- ship same lo Hollywood where yours truly will he 'awaiting the mood' with due patience!" # * * It all' began when producers Irving Allen and Albert R. Broccoli decided to capture the mood of "Safari," their Columbia release film, by taking a movie unit into the heart, of Africa's Mau Mau country. Now, it's all well and good to lounge in the shade under the spreading neon signs on Sunset Strip, with a coo! beverage in one hand and the National Geographic in another, pondering the dramatic impact of a line like: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"—It's quite another matter to hack your way through a tropical tousled tangle-wood, and truculent tribes of tse-tse flies, into the inner recesses of the outer Kenya district. * * * For six rough, tough weeks, the Warwick company' lived, worked and sloshed around in its own perspiration. Severe sunburn was the order of the day and all hands occasionally joined their director, Terence Young, in a spot of heat exhaustion. Water was at a premium. Bottled drinks exploded when opened a n d fix/.led away like warm champagne uncorked by a novice. Emulating a "Golden Goose," straining -to produce a double- yolk, 24 karat egg, the camp'--lone refrigerator creaked away in a valiant effort to materialize a rare "cake" of slush-ice. A creation of questionable form and substance that quickly reverted to a tepid liquid .state in the searing outer atmosphere. At night, roving packs of howl- 6Al night, roving packs of hdwl- ing hyenas scented the camp's food and serenaded its occupants with a discordant symphony. A bedlam labeled by 1 crew member as, "Their own impression of a music-moderne impression!" Then the rains came. Rainstorms converted the terrain into a gooey sea of muck and shifting sands, miring everything on wheels and delaying work until equipment could be dug out of the mud. * * * Isolated from civilization and far from telephones or radios, the only news to reach the Warwick Productions' "Safari" unit arrived at infrequent intervals when mail got through. With insects, reptiles and wild beasts contesting the movie troupe's right to camp in their domain, with camera equipment and cars becoming disabled in increasing numbers, Victor Mature and Janet Leigh may have wondered about getting back and what the future held in store. Would a fickle public remember them at a far later date? For instance, that eventful day when some lost ex- plot er, who took the wrong fork of the trail a few thousand miles back, would burst into the clearing mumbling, "Victor Mature and Janet Leigh. I presume!" * * * Would he try to lead the trek back to the world they knew with each surviving member of the "Safari" crew staggering along burdened down with a case of exposed film on his back? And horrible thought, would they each the outside world with the celluloid record of their rigorous rainblings only to find that a new projection process, using Infra - X-Ray - Chromeoscope, Triple-Wide Screen - 100-mm film had made their Cinemascope- Technicolor footage as obsolete as the early - day, experimental, hand-cranked model of the first Dodo Bird? * * * Don't laugh! You can gel weird ideas, marooned out there in those great, wide, un-opened spaces! So, the next time someone suggests to Victor Mature that he should go to Africa to "capture a mood" it is quite possible that he'll reply, "I tried that once. Son! And, believe me, the only kind of mood I can capture in Africa wouldn't remain in captivity for long. The censors would make me turn th» cantankerous thing loose!" FROM THE FILES OF THE ALGONA UPPER DBS MOINES JUNE 16, 1936 * * * Rollo W. Hardin, a floater suspected of being an escaped maniac-killer from an asylum at St. Peter, Minn., was apprehended here by authorities and held in the local jail for several hours Wednesday. It was a case of mistfiken identity, however, as a guard from St. Peter arrived and stated Hardin was the wrong man. He was freed immediately and the search continued in this aref for the real wanted man, Albert Saroko. * * * A Burl man, C. I. Mansmilh, und his son, Melvern, were injured in a tractor accident in a Bancroft garage where they were working one clay last week. The tractor, which was being repaired at the time, slipped into gear and roared off on a rampage. Mr Mansrnith's foo\ was crushed and he was knocked down and suffered other injuries. JK IS * Theo Herbsl, who was always great when in the spotlight, was leportedly the first Major Bowes in Kossuth county. He was named to conduct the amateur shows at the State Theater, a job formerly handled by Lem and Martha, WHO Barn Dance stars, who served for a time as masters of ceremony. * * * Ray Barton of Algona suffered fi fractured ankle ten days ago and is confined to his home, Ray and a neighbor boy decided to try out a few football tactics in the yard when the scrimmage got a little out of hand, so it seems. It was thought Ray would have to let the ankle mend- for another month before returning to work. * * * Violet Norman remained in the lead in the Upper DCS Moines- State Theater sponsored Working Girls Texas Centennial Contest. Ilda Patterson, who had previously been in second in the balloting, moved back into that position during the week. Forty of 50 floais had beeft entered in a parade being formed or July 4 in Algona. The idea 'for the gigantic parade came from the Algona Community Club, and was a direct tie-in with the fair board's celebration at the fairgrounds. * * * Joe Schmitt Of Whilicmore suffered a painful injury Monday while setting a pane of glass. The glass slipped and cut a deep gash in his hand which required five stitches to close. Ah artery was severed & he lost a large amount of blood before getting medical attention at Emmetsburg. * * * Work on curb and gutter along Algona's State street began this week. The next item on the agenda was the actual paving of the main drag. It was estimated by contractors doing the work that the street would be finished and ready for business sometime in July. * * * The June term of district court here adjourned until Thursday due to a lack of pressing business. A large amount of routine matters were handled, but nothing of a sensational nature came before the court. •» * * Algona's Grays won one and lost two during the week. The locals fell to the Chicago American Giants,, 11-8, and the House of David nine, 9-4, before taking Forest City, 8-(>, at Kanawha. The win over Forest City was the first over that team in many tries over past years. YOUR BEST BUY! WORK S*an4»s* upp*t* -- «« soto* — Goodyw W«Il —; man — ti«*i*d to rtiirt *&*.
