The county is still short of its quota for scrap metal collected in the drive for the second half of 1943. An estimated 330 tons was gathered in the countywido cnmnaiim on October 14. Prior to the ffi ?PP r ° x '. m . atc ly 300 tons had been handled by Kossuth dealers The county's quota for the second half was 1,000 tons, so Kus- cS h^t '"F a .PP r °™tcly 375 tons short of its goal. Haul in Your Scrap. 11 .jf est , im ytcd by scrap workers that there is twice as much scrap left as was collected in the recent drive, and scrap workers are being urged by W. E Lev county chairman, to continue efforts to collect the full quota It is hoped that the people who •i , hav , e . scrap on their farms will haul it to dealers and sell it before the end of the year; or if they wish to donate the scrap, local chairmen will be glad to see that it is hauled. One thing that has impressed some scrap workers is that there are a few farmers who arc asking for new farm machinery who are nevertheless unwilling to turn m old equipment that such farmers should expect to get new machinery with so much badly needed metal lying idle on their farms.

COWLES SEEKS DELEGATE JOB ''• A Washington, D. C.. dispatch in Friday's Mason City Globe- Gazette revealed that Gardner Covvles Jr., Des Moines, known as "Mike" to friends, will be a candidate for a place on the Iowa delegation to the 1944 national republican convention. The dispatch said that 'politicos' figure that his object is to support Willkie for the G. O. P. nomination for president.-'Mike's' bJrothqfv-Johh, publisher -of Minrreap'pljs: newspapers, is ! also a s(rorig-'Willkie ^supporter.-, Referring to 'Mike's' candidacy the dispatch said: "This, to some of the brethren, has sinister aspects, for there seems to be some right forthright anti-Willkie sentiment brewing, even though the convention is a good eight months away, which might be indicative of a pleasant, or at least exciting, winter and spring ahead of us." SHE WANTED TO MARRY HITLER Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Jahnkc, of Blue Earth, who had been serving a 120-day sentence for harboring a draft evader, were released from the Faribault county jail last week. The two were arrested five months ago, when it was discovered their son Myron, who had failed to report for induction into the army, was living as a fugitive on his parents' farm. The parents had to be taken forcibly by Sheriff Matthies when they resisted arrest, and it was at the hearing which followed that Mrs. Jahnke uttered the words that gave her slate- wide publicity—"I love Hitler; I'd marry him if I could!" The remark was made when County Attorney H. C. Lindgren asked if she didn't know she was aiding Hitler by trying to keep her son out of the army. » • Des Moines Papers Again Boost Rates Further evidence that newspapers which raise subscription prices are not doing it as a mat- j ter of desire but of necessity has been afforded by announcement of the third advance within eight months in Des Moines Register and Tribune prices. The Sunday Register has been advanced from lOc Jto 12c for town delivery and from 13c to 15c for rural delivery, and rural delivery for both Sunday and daily has been boosted from 27c weekly to 30c weekly.
