In chapter 442 of the Code relating to Landlord and Tenant there are three sections covering notice of termination of tenancy, and the first one, Sec. 10,159, reads as follows: Any person in the possession of real estate, with the assent of the owner, is presumed to be a tenant at will until the contrary is shown, and thirty days notice in writing must be given by either party before he can terminate such a tenancy. The following section is headed Termination of Farm Tenancies and the text follows: In case of tenants occupying and cultivating farms, the notice must fix the termination of the tenancy to take place on the first day of March. The third and longest section carries the heading Agreement for Termination and follows: Where an agreement is made fixing the time of the termination of the tenancy, wheether in writing or not, it shall cease at the time agreed upon without notice. In the case of farm tenants . . . occupying and cultivating an acreage of 40 acres or more, the tenancy shall continue for the following crop year upon the same terms and conditions as the original lease unless written notice for termination is given by either party to the other not later than November 1, whereupon the tenancy shall terminate March 1 following. That part of the foregoing section beginning with "In the case of farm tenants" was added a few years ago, and this was what -the Davidson opinion held ' invalid. The reasoning behind the decision is unknown to this column, but there must have been some ground for it, or the supreme court would not have divided 6-3 on the issue. Justice MARCH 23, ^ HODGEPODGE Webslcr—A stew of various In- gtedienls; a mixJure. iiiinittmMitmuiimiiiniiiiiiiimiimmii Without regard to party the press of the country has scathingly rebuked him, At random the following comment of the Cresco, la., Times will illustrate: The American public has little respect for the persons who snipe at men in uniform, and especially will condemn the practice when indulged by representatives in congress. It should not have been necessarjr for a soldier in the armed foreign service to make a protest, as was done recently. The protest should have come from the house members and with vigor sufficient to silence the snipers at once. Secretary of War Stimson reminded the people a short time ago that heavy casualties must be looked for on the African front. That warning already is being realized. That alone should be sufficient to silence the snip r I THERE'S A GREAT fuss in the legislature \ over federal aid to dependent children, and ' FREEZING OF BUTTER, OLEO, and cooking fats will make a joke about palm- greasing no longer funny. Those who hoarded butter may find themselves in a bad spot because that delicacy is apt to become rancid with the coming of summer. Anyway they will just postpone the evil day when they have to cut down. (Consolation thought for those who didn't hoard.) THE MOVIES ByT.H.C. ers. The American people cah get all-fired critical of presidents. In fact they usually do. Even Washington and Lincoln were fiercely abused. It is an astonishing revelation to turn back to their times and read what was said about them. But all that is understood among us. It is part of the political game, and presidents have to expect it. They must let it run off like water from a duck's back. But our American sense of fair play is shocked when a president's family is dragged into the political mud without cause. Thus even Mrs. Roosevelt, though her public activities provide occasion for criticism, escapes with few shafts that rankle. There is nothing to indicate that the Roosevelt boys are not doing their part in this war just as the sons of commoners are doing, and the congressman's unfortunate attack well deserved the reception it has received. Timely Topics The WAVES and the SPARS, officially in the navy, have 'had it over' the WAACS, mere auxiliaries—and how women like anything like that, though so differently—but congress was taking steps last week to erase the distinction and make the WAACS part of the army. Under the law soldiers, but not sailors, have had to be males. When 'male' is cut out the WAACS will drop the second 'A,' which stands for 'Auxiliary.' The War department is backing a bill in congress to draft men and women for war production. "If it's democratic to tap a man on the shoulder and send him to fight Japs in a New Guinea jungle," said Under-Secretary Patterson, "can it be undemocratic to draft men or women to load shells, etc?" And certainly it looks as if the gentleman had us all on the ropes there. Who in heck are we stay-at-homes, anyway—what rates us above soldiers facing shot, shell, disease, and instant or lingering death? "Power feeds on itself," says Joe Martin, house G. O. P. leader at Washington, repeating, in the very words, what these columns have often said. "Power begets, and always wants, more 'power," as these columns have Bliss, of the minority, even wrote a dissent- I also > though in other words, pointed out many times. But Joe goes on to claim that mg opinion. The Davidson opinion applied only in this judicial district. In the rest of the state the law as it stood was apparently considered valid, and many observers were confident that the supreme court would so hold. By virtue of the court's opinion the law now .stands throughout the state as written. Tenants might well take notice that the law is two-edged, for they have to give notice too. While it is unlikely, in view of the continuous demand for farms, that any landlord would seek to hold a tenant who failed to give notice, it might happen, and the tenant who gives the required notice, if he wants to give up his tenancy, will be protected by so doing. You Can't Pooh-Pooh Away Popular Alarm Referring to the Des Moines Register's comment on the attitude of the house in the legislature towards the federal grant in aid of dependent children, the clipping at the foot of the next column is submitted for thoughtful consideration. The Express is a democratic newspaper. No Iowa newspaper has for a generation or more been more faithful in support of democratic principles. Amonsj t'ie Town weekly press it has as far back as Cleveland's time or farther been recognized democratic wheelhorse. The Register may pooh-pooh the view set forth in the Express, it may consider '.lie argument crude, but it will scarcely deny that the attitude oC the Express is symptomatic of widespread uneasiness in both parties over the trend of federal government in recent years towards regimentation of the people. This uneasiness .has been growing for years, and recent events have demonstrated that it has at last reached the point of boiling over in the democratic party itself. This is, of course, a fact well known to the Register. The highest democrats in congress have given loud voice to it at this session, and the people revolted last November. There was a popular saying a while back that "Fifty million Frenchmen can't be wrong," Maybe it isn't necessarily so that any number of people are right, but it remains true that when a great number of people get alarmed about any government policy it is high time for the party in power to take respectful notice and reexamine the ground on which it stands. it will all be different if the G. O. P. is restored to power, and .that's something this sheet remains highly cynical about. The situation of Japs who were born in this country, are therefore citizens, and who are really Americans as much as any of us, is one to stir sympathy. The heck of it is that the premises can't in any given case be proved. Nobody knows any man's inner loyalties except himself. He may pretend loyalty, yet be disloyal, and there is no way to tell which is fact. Sensible American- born Japs realize this, and so accept their present fate as inevitable. Suffering cats! Is this possible?—The Luverne, Minn., Star-Herald claims that a solemn little WPS pamphlet for farmers advises them to conserve horseshoes by taking the shoes off over night! No, that can't be believed; it's a canard! But how such- stories become current is worth thinking about. Isn't it plainly because the people get fed up with governmental advice on things they know a lot more about than the bureaucrats do, and have to turn to humor to relieve themselves? Remember that other one— years ago—about the 'love life' of tadpoles, or something? The Unfortunate Attack on the Roosevelt Boys Recently an obscure congressman with an anti-Roosevelt phobia fired a broadside at the Roosevelt sons in the armed services. The congressman must have been surprised by the p iblic reaction. No doubt he expected the v-.-ra-!:: approval of everybody who DANGER! the House slapped down a bill last week accepting federal aid. ' The reason for the slap is that legislators feared too much supervision from Washington by well-intentioned old biddies with impractical ,ideas. Not so long ago many counties had some experience with welfare as a "business"—and the experience was not entirely satisfactory. But there is an angle of getting some federal money—just so the money doesn't go to pay fancy salaries for high-sounding titles to county welfare heads approved on a political or some other like basis. THERE ARE SOME hints that Mason City's basketball prowess isn't "homegrown," with two of the members of the present championship team having played at Davenport last year. High-pressure athletics, it is charged, is invading the high school field, with jobs offered either the youth or the youth's parent. Might be only a case of the green-eyed devil envy as far as the Mason Cityans are concerned. * * * THERE WILL BE a race for a Fourth term based on the cry—don't change horses in the middle of the stream. Republicans might reply that it's time to get off a horse and onto a tank whether in the middle of the stream or anywhere else at the present state of world affairs. *np viv tr\ r* A PROHIBITION publication is greatly encouraged over the fact that most of Alabama's counties have voted dry. It seems to mean simply that Alabama is voting dry for the colored man,, and that the law just doesn't apply to the white gent. There are a lot of those kind of laws down south.- A dry state is one in which bootlegging flourishes. At present there is more than a little bootlegging in Iowa because of the rationing at the state liquor stores. THE WAR IS really bearing down on the colleges—the men's fraternities are closing for the duration with the end of this school term. * * ONE WEEK'S income tax collection totaled more than two billions. of dollars. Since July 1 the federal government has taken in nearly eight billions. In any language that's a (one word censored) of a lot of money. No doubt there's a lot of wastage in the spending, which will be called to the attention of the country after the war is over. There will probably be some first-class scandals in public spending unearthed. Despite all the nice talk people will still be people —even in Washington—and even Democrats. [From Ihe Knoxville Express.] How many of you ever thought of the ration book which you now carry and use when you buy gasoline, canned goods, shoes, etc., as one of the most dangerous things in the world today? Not that it isn't necessary during this period of war emergency, but in the fact that it may be the entering wedge for that group of dreamers, not democrats, not republicans, that has always been with us and whose aim in life seems to be to reorganize the world on a plan of their own. If these dreamers have their way, our world, as we have known it in the past, may be changed to a rationed world. If we allow these conditions to continue after the present conflict is over, our every act will be governed, our every mouthful of food will be weighed. We will not complain while this war is BOB BECKER AND THE PETTYS— Algona had the rare privilege of entertaining distinguished guests Thursday and Friday, in the persons of Bob Becker, sports writer for the Chicago Tribune, and George Petty, creator of the famous Petty Girl, and his son George Jr. I have never been particularly impressed by "notables" as such. I wouldn't walk across the street to see the most important man in the world if I thought he was a boor and a snob. I like people, human beings, and if they have achieved note either in business, or art—well, that's a horse of my color. Bob Becker is an old school and classmate of mine, 'way back in the now almost forgotten Beloit college days of 1908. He was a regular fellow then, and college didn't change him—or the world or the Chicago Tribune. He's still "regular," in the parlance of the sportsmen, and well known all over the United States for his widely read articles in the Tribune on hunting, fishing, and dogs. Bob came out to Iowa on an assignment for "the Trib" because this spring's hunting season was the first ever staged in Iowa and therefore had a distinct news value; because train connections were ideal, and because Joe Lowe here is a member of the state game commission and a hunter of some note, Algona was chosen as most likely "hunting ground," and as such it proved to be. The boys had an ideal day of hunting on Thursday and left for Chicago with their .full limit of birds. Bob took his trophies home in full plumage, the better to impress the members of the staff of the Tribune and other friends. It was an unusual pleasure for me to renew old friendship with a man who has risen to the top of his vocation, but. still retains' that boyish enthusiasm which marks college men but is frequently lacking in those of more mature years. He is full of his subject— sports and the great out-of-doors; but when I handed him an old diary of our college days, his eyes took on a nostalgic glow, and he succumbed to memories of 35 years ago. And after all, that's the stature of a man, isn't it? With Bob, as his guest, came George Petty and George's son George Jr. Petty Senior is creator of the Petty girl of Esquire fame, but he was neither artist nor "notable" in Algona — just plain "George" to us, the home folks. From the moment he stepped off the "Sioux" in the dark, early hours of Thursday morning, he was a charming, affable, congenial gentleman who came to Algona to hunt preasants and who became "one-of-the- boys" in five minutes after arrival. . , , Which brings me back to my favorite proposition—fame is illusive, of low calibre unless accompanied by what we may call character for want of a better term. George Petty proved himself "a man among men" here, which in my humble judgment is greater intrinsically than mere fame. Combined with the artistry which has made possible the creation of a form of feminine pulchritude, well, that's something else again; but just about adds up to "tops," and "tops" he was with all the boys in Algona. Petty will leave for the Coast in a few weeks to supervise personally the making of a motion picture called, fittingly enough, The Petty Girl; and I do hope the producers (RKO) will "glorify the Petty Girl" instead of subjecting patrons to a long, tiresome drama, as they did with Ziegfeld's darlings after combing the USA for the most beautiful girls in the land. George Jr. is a "chip off the old block," to use a home phrase. He conducted himself with dignity among his elders, which is the highest praise that I' can lavish on any youngster; and he made a very favorable impression on certain members of the opposite younger sex. Altogether it was a delightful experience for the Algoniang privileged to meet these charming gentlemen, and I, for one, hope they will return soon to renew the friendships they made during their brief visit. P.S.—In his broadcast over WGN Sunday afternoon Bob Becker referred to, this writer as one of "Aleona's crack shots" (NOT "POTS" — "shots", dear readers). Me, whose only claim to huntsman-fame was the shooting of a mud-hen on the Mississippi river 35 years ago and the catching of a sheep-head in this same stream at about the same time! Since both these accomplishments would be rated exactly "zero" in any true hunter's appraisal, I am coming in for a goodly share of ribbing from my. constituents. As "Dutch" Lorenz has so often (and aptly said) "you can't beat fun". ALGONIANS GIVE TALKS AT A MEETING OF UNION TWP. F. B. WISHFUL THINKING sees a revolt brewing in Germany. Chances are that there will be no revolt till the German army is knocked back onto its own doorstep. The Gestapo sees to it that there is no chance for organized resistance in Germany and army dissenters are simply sent to the toughest part of the battle front to be taken care of by the enemy. * * REMEMBER A YEAR ago how everything seemed to have ceased on Luzon—main island of the Philippines? A radio news broadcast from Tokio reported fighting still in progress in the mountainous territory of that island—a band of natives and Americans refusing to be civilized by Japan's liberating army. Maybe before the year is cut there will be more fighting on the island, with the Japs getting a taste of Bataan. • • O SOME DAY THERE will be "pay as you earn" taxes—whether based on the Ruml plan of forgiving a year's taxes or not. A poll shows the people 87 per cent in favor of it, and the people eventually get their way, whether it's good for them or not. And usually what the people want as a mass is good for them. Union Twp., Mar. 22—A Farm Bureau meeting was held at Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gardner's Thursday evening, 50 persons attending. . _ __ _ ""Alfred'Schenck, township president, presided.

He was inducted into the army some weeks ago. Rosemary, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Studer, was confined to home last week because of a leg injury. Some weeks ago the leg was bruised severely when she fell on. ice while at school. The leg was apparently lealing satisfactorily till last week Monday, when she suffered considerable pain, and was taken :o a doctor at Algona, who treated the leg for infection. She was also given a shot against lock- aw. The leg is healing satisfactorily now. A home project follow-up meet- ng will be held at Mrs. Henry Sherman's this week Thursday.

There is a weed patch of pulp magazines in the garden of literature that needs a good clean-up. Most of the "love-story" type of magazines cater to the lowest taste. With printing paper becoming scarce it would be a shame to permit such publications to keep going and force worthwhile informative magazines and papers into limited editions. being fought there is an unseen enemy creeping upon us—socialism! The ration book is the broad-sword of socialism — the idea of taking all and giving part of it back in equal amounts to all. Government can give only what it first takes, and never has there been an instance where an equal amount was distributed from what was first taken. While the public is being called upon in many ways to sacrifice for the war effort, plans are being made to regiment the people now for war, and later for peace. This administration has been accused of refusing to sacrifice any social gains. Let everything else go, but not our social gains. Pure bunk! Social security for all seems to be the goal of a lot of idle dreamers who have no other mission in life but to change the existing plan. Social security means that we all become wards of the government and will be on a ration card the rest of our lives. We do not want the government to take care of us. We do, however, insist that our government make it possible that every man who likes to work is given the opportunity and is not forced to pay tribute to a job or hold it. doesn't happen to care for the policies of ^ e . re P eatt the warning that the ration 4u T, i^ ! , , I car d is a potentially dangerous thine in thp the senior Roosevelt anri nprVianc Vi« onron i_ , * • , MW»I&<_.HJUO uiuig in im me SLIUUI j\uuacvcii, aim pernaps ne even hands of experimenters, and thoueh wo T expected to rise to fame on the strength of his remarks.

AND THERE ARE 29 less weekly newspapers in Iowa than there were a year ago and four others combined with competitors. There is a ceiling on the amount of print that can be used, and there is a threat of a further cut to come. Government "free publicity" hand-outs for useless agencies would use up any weekly's print allotment if the management permitted. BIGGEST EVENT of the year locally was the visit of Bob Becker and George Petty and son. The trio of big shots were treated as equals by the local yokels and thoroughly enjoyed it. Both the visitors and the visited learned a lot that' did them both good. It was fun for a non-hunter to watch the hunters fairly drool at the tales told by the two visitors--who are really big game hunters. —D. E. D.
