This is the bank with which the Algona association is affiliated, but of course the local association had no hand in the shakeup and was in no way affected by it. This bank is one of 12 units of the Farm Credit Administration known alphabetically as the FCA, and it operates in four states— Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, and South Dakota. It is said to be the largest such bank in the FCA chain. There are seven directors—three from Iowa, two from Nebraska, one from Wyoming, one from South Dakota. Two weeks ago the directors had a meeting and fired President Charles McCumsey and Vice Presidents Andrew Cop'perud and Hugh E. Baird. The vote was 4-3 on McCumsey and Copperud; 4-0 on Baird.

McCumsey had i Journal, deserted the war long enough the been ' been president since 1936; Kopperud and Baird had been with the bank for 20 years. This editorial is not concerned with the personal fate of the officials dismissed, but with the reasons for the dismissals as given in the Register's story. The directors declined to give reasons, but politics was alleged. It is true that E. G. Black, FCA governor, had said the dismissed officials had not "cooperated satisfactorily in reducing operating expenses," but Sen. Hugh Butler, (Rep.) of Nebraska, of Nebraska, said he other week to editorialize on carrots. • He wants someone to eat raw carrots a while, then change to cooked carrots for the same period and report on comparative 'zip.'

We elect representatives and a senator in congress this year, but the senatorship is about all that so far has attracted real attention. The war is absorbing major public interest. The state republican letter for newspapers (not used in the Advance) for this week reports three candidates for the primary nomination for senator. They are Mark Thorn- burp, Emmetsburg, and Jas. I. Dolliver, Fort Dodge, plus one G. Scott Davies, a' Des Moines unknown. Strangely enough for a political , handout, mention of Governor Wilson for the senatorship is omitted.

To date there has been only one fellow admit he voted for it — and he had to say something — he introduced the measure! All the rest are breaking forth with great excitement saying THEY did not vote for it—no, sir—they have the interests of this great country, whose borders stretch from the ice-bound coasts of Maine to the sunny shores of California—where the eagle screams in the hills and the peaceful valleys are filled with happy homes—say, where were we? Oh yeh. No sir-no congressman voted for a pension bill. That's just a dirty republican trick—and ain't those republicans the unpatriotic fellows, though? * * ' SOMEBODY SHOULD break the news gently to some sleeping admirals, dreaming of Manilla Bay in '98, that Singapore fell in about ten days. Admirals have been prone to tut-tut the country boys who wonder what it's all about and who fear maybe Hitler and the Japs have something on the ball.

But undoubtedly there have been some serious mistakes made. Perhaps it doesn't do any good to criticise - but that doesn't mean those who are criticised should shout to high heaven that it's unpatriotic to wonder. Critics of Churchill in England are not accused of being unpatriotic just because they think Churchill is not doing the job right. And the English will toss Churchill out on his solemn ear if they think he the man.
