Time to Plan for Iowa's Centennial Iowa history goes hack much farther than 100, years but not for another two years can Iowa celebrate a century of statehood. Iowa was admitted lo Iho union in liMO. Many counties, nearly all in Eastern Iowa, will celehrale their own centennials at Ihe same time. Kossuth's centennial will not arrive for another eight years, but as a part of Iowa in J!M(» this county will have a deep interest and be enti'led to participate in the stall- centennial. Some steps towards observance of Ihc state centennial have already been taken. | Among them the slate historical society at i Iowa City was authorised to prepare and publish an low:', centennial series of pamphlets and books. These valuable records of Iowa history are available in the Algona public library. Various state private organizations arc contributing to the prc-cenlennial records by publishing their own histories. The Presbyterians, the Methodists, and Ihe Masons have already released their publications and others are expected before or by 1946. In addition the state historical department at DCS Moines is cooperating in plans for observance of the centennial. It has been suggested that women's club The Rise ancl Fall of Another Dewey The Charles Cily Press claims thai Governor Dewey is a distant relative of Commodore Dewey, later the admiral. ?erhap:; it was the oldster on tin; Press who wrote Iho remark. It may not mean much to . the young men of today, many of whom, .might ask, "And who, then, was Commodore Dewey?" ' But to all who lived then and were bursting their teens, or were somewhat older, the name of Commodore Dewey revives a moment of-'higih patriotism; for it was Commodore Dewey who whipped the Spaniards at Manila Bay and freed the Philippines. In command of a fleet which today would be considered very small, Dewey located Ihe Spanish in Ihe bay and boldly sailed in lo meet them. The battle came on, and Dewey addressed the captain of the flagship in quiet- words which became historic: "You may fire when ready, Gridley." The. news of the destruction of the Spanish fleel rang round Ihe world like a shot. America .went, wild with pride and exultation. Any old man of today well remembers the thrill of a lifetime which swept through him as the news broke of the great victory. Later when Dewey came home he was grceled as a hero of heroes. He was raised in rank to a full admiral. Few men in this country have been Iho object of such universal adulation. By popular subscription the money was raised for a handsome home at Washington which was presented to the Admiral. But there was a sor,ry aftermath which have the Russians admiring the speed nnd precision of the 1 Allied attack. Such speedy dashes make | the German conquest of France ancl Hid lowlands a slow blitz indeed. SOFT HEARTS can not be permitted to prevail in peace terms, particularly with the Japs.

The August 5, 1014, Advance announced installation of the linotype which is still in. use. Before that the Advance had had what was called the Junior linotype—unsatisfactory. These were tliu first typesetting machines in •the county. The Dr. F. L. Tribons had gone to Clear Lake to occupy their new cottigo on Algona Beach.

It's go- •ing to take a good-sized army of occupation to prevent wholesale slaughter of Germans, whether guilty of terror or not. * * THE AMOUNT OF money being raised by the CIO Political- Action committee is not healthy. An Organization with from three million to five million dollars to spend, even if well-meaning, cannot help but be overbearing. And. it cannot help but be contrary to the usual American custom of consideration .of voting influence by constructive argument. Too much money, in politics is as bad as if not worse than too much money in any other activity. The temptation to "buy" candidates for office is strong on the for it. Mr. and Mrs. Lee I'LeRoy] McWhorter (Mrs. No. 1| had been down from their Portland township farm, and the Advance assured the public that, they were "among Porlland's finest." "Miss Ida Anderson, deputy county auditor,'' had left Dave Leffert; that is, she had left for Sw'ea City, where she was spending a vacation of two weeks. Probably Dave managed to find urgent business in northwest Kossuth a time or two before she returned. Dr. A. L. Rist was feeling his oats or something. Anyhow he had splurged by buying a Paige automobile and building .n garage PLANS TO HAVE program committees keep the centennial in J the patriots of that'day, nearly 50 years ago, regret to recall. For never in American history did a herd have such a fall over so small a mailer. Dewey, a widower, married again, and innocently he deeded the home Ihe people had given him lo his wife. On his defenseless head there then burst universal indignation over night, and he died a broken man. mind and include early Iowa historical subjects in their programs next year and the year following. There is ample source material for papers or talks in the local library, or if other information is desired it can doubtless be secured on loan from the stale library. To readers interested in history the beginnings in Iowa are fascinating. As the home of the Red Man, Iowa's eastern border was first visited by the white explorers Joliet and MarquoUe as far back as 1673, more than 250 years ago. Other explorers The ODT Was Off Its Nut, Don't You Think? 'Lou' Gardner, who writes the stale re- followed, and white settlements arose along j publican dopo for such wec ,] c ]j os ; ns Ihe Mississippi. How settlement grew till Iowa became a state of two and a half million people is a marvel of history, and there are no more absorbing pages than the records of the earliest years. We in Kossuth have our own later history to draw upon in the B. F. Reed county history. the various booklets by Harvey Ingham, the little classic Early Algona by Mrs. Gardner Cowles Sr. (who was a pioneer Kossuth girl), the records of our Diamond centennial kept by the late Al Falkenhain- er, and various other records in the Algona library. Kossuth organizations of all sarts who wish 1o lake part in Ihe slnle centennial observances therefore will not lack for our own program sources if it is desired to recall our own county history while observing completion of the- state's first one hundred years. PAC ancl the temptation of candidates to "sell" is just as strong where the votes can be controlled. It isn't healthy. 4- + + + + PHILADELPHIA'S traffic tie-up is just a sample of the hectic situation this country will face whan the fighting ends unless there is some constructive and intelligent planning now. And the strongest indictment against the present administration is its unwillingness to doing anything until circumstances force it into the nine-hole and the government knuckles under. PEOPLE IN RURAL communities should bo thankful they are settled where they are. Some of the things to come in the urban centers are ugly and menacing. Racial strife following the close of the war may be as intense as to shako the foundations of the government. The seeds are flourishing, and some of the ugly fruit appears every week somewhere in the country. And both sides are being too encouraged -to "start some- it, sprang a. new lished lasl week: one in his He said: column pub- The Age Argument in This Year's Campaign At the recent democratic national convention at least one speaker made a greal point out of Dewey's youth. He wanted to know if the people were going to turn the coun- trp over to a boy, or words to that effect. There have been echoes of the same thing on the part of others, and there will doubtless be a few more, but as a campaign argument you can look to see it dropped. One reason: It has been discovered that if Dewey is elected lie will, when he takes office, be only 20 days younger than Theodore Roosevelt was when sworn into office as successor to William McKinley. Besides, the argument is contrary to the well known philosophy of the present Roosevelt. In the attempted purge of the supreme court, the Roosevelt posilion was that the court needed younger men, As late as this year Mr. Roosevelt denied the north Iowa federal judgeship to the first candidate suggested by Senator Gillette on the ground that the candidate was too old. It would seem, anyway, thai the age argument is not likfly to bo played up by either side in this campaign. The republicans can make nothing out of playing up Dewey's youth, in fact might lose by it, since many voters might think him too young. Nor arc the democrats likely to dwell overmuch on Dewey's youth, since to do so would be to provoke retort on Roosevelt's age. For, ironically enough, Roosevelt has now been so long in office that he is in the old ago class himself. Only five times have candidates for president past 60, as Roosevelt is now. bec-n r-lcctr-d. These columns have heretofore commented on the facl that in lato years the president's pictures have given the impression of a tired and wornniit old man. Other com- menlalors have hr-en struck with Ihe same impression, aiming them Editor P. A. Olson, of the Stnry City Herald, who found the news pictures of the president "shock- Iowa republicans are questioning the pur. pose of the Office of Defense Transportation in asking that their state conventions be cancelled. Well, Dial's one that this observer missed. Gardner says the request was made June 21, which was some weeks back, when the writer was a bit under the weather. Why Gardner saved it for such late mention hasn't been explained. If the ODT really made such a request, the excuse, probably, was lo help keep travel down as much as possible in Ihese war times, when every means of transportation is overtaxed. Gardner does not say whether the democrats were asked, or to be asked, to cancel, loo, but presumably they were. Neither party, however, paid any alien- lion to the request, and Gardner explains why : To have complied with this request would have prevented the appearance of republican presidential electors 'on 'the Iowa ballot. It would_ have deprived Iowa voters of the opportunity to cast, votes, for their republican electors and thus for 'their republican candidates. To have complied with this request of the Office of Defense Transportation would have prevented republicans of Iowa from nominating candidates for the supreme court of their state. These are valid reasons for holding the conventions as usual. The ODT's request was out of place, and Gardner had the best of the argument. There has been no showing since the conve-nlions lhal they interfered in the least with traffic. Of course Gardner did not fail, in this connection, to take note of the facl lhal Ihe president, when he went out to California in a special train, wasn't paying much a.t- tenlion to the ODT's request either. An Idea for Cooperation Which Went Bust. R, R. Roberts in Brili News-Tribune. Early in June there was started in the county seat a move to have business mei close up a half day each week during June July and August. After several weeks of canvassing th business men and getting agreements signei it was learned that Kanawha did not want to close on Fridays because that is the da> of the big Brummond sales. Garner didn' want to close on Thursdays because Lhat wa. the day when they had their salesbarn crowds. Thursday was chosen. Half or more of the business places in the towns never closec (didn't agree to), and after one week of clos ing some that did not close the first Thurs day afternoon closed to be good fellows will their fellow townsmen; others stayed opei for reasons of their own. Then it was an nounced that the closing on Thursday after noons had been dispensed with at Garner Britt closers stuck it out two more Thursday afternoons, when others announced thej would resume usual hours. It appears tha the people of the towns want plenty of free dom in this matter of business, hours. T. T. Herbst was clarinetist in a hotel orchestra al Arnolds park that summer.

This was the first group meeting of the year. The meeting was' conducted by President Mrs. M.ax Clark. A song, "Whnt n Friend We Have in Jesus" was sung, followed by "America." Psalm I was read by Mrs. John Coyle. Two instrumental numbers were- given by Barbara Long and Dorothy Bratland. Reading, "Keep the Home Fires Burning," was given by Mrs. Mary Schneider. For closing hymn "God Be With You" was sung. A committee was appointed to lay plans for a guest day to be held in the near future. The next meeting will be August 25 with Doris Shipley and Mrs. Earl Long as hostesses. Mrs. Roy Telford will have the program and Mrs. Mary Schneider the scripture.

(You •eally need a rubber neck to keep up these days with the news. Bui a crick in the neck it such good tidings will be carried without complaint. You've seen pictures showing how women's bathing suits have 'cvolulcd' in the last 30 or 40 years. Everybody was so super- modest then that it was considered etqiuettically questionable whether men .and women should bathe together. Which brings to mind that H. J. McChcsney, Demo candidate for counly Ireas- urer in 1014 (he won), wouldn't go bathing in a mixed crowd at Ihe Okobojis, so John Laing, Ihc inveterate joker, upset him in five feet of water in his (M'c's) Sunday best. The Advance hinted that one of the local banks was in danger of losing an unnamed 'fair em- ploye.' Anyhow Harry Stephenson, bachelor, had bought a lot and was going to build a house on it. Now, who the dickens was she? If asked how long Bert Palmer and Laura Cluibl.v ; hg<fcbeen married, this 'colifmn's 1 nest guess would have been 20 years.

They will return this coming Sunday evening. withdrawals to a day, but the WASTE PAPER drives are on in all cities, except perhaps Washington. However, the capital of our country is making a notable contribution to that war effort by scattering through the country reams upon reams of publicity hand-outs by various agencies, yards upon yards of regulations, rules, orders, etc., by this or that administration, -and the like. It's a great country. * * ALGONIANS WILL GO vole on an, airport next Algona banks didn't do it. Ah! fond—and not so fond— memories of this colyumist's first car. It had acetylene lights which illuminated the circum- ambient atmosphere at night about the same as a match would. And lhal must have been 30 years ago or thereabouts. Anyhow the Advance of Aug. 12, 1914, reported thai a Burt man had had his face burned when.as he lit one of his lamps it had flared up.
