Our good friend of the Algona Advance. W. C. Dewel, advises republicans to steer lifvay from discussion of President \elt's campaign promise of 1040 to fathers and mothers: "Your boys and girls are not fining to be sent into any foreign wars." The evidence is positive that the president said , but it is reminiscent of the days of the ent boom in livestock here in the last days of World War I. Then hogs sold at fabulous Jive-figure prices such as $10,000. And one of these hogs, a boar of prodigous size with a bloodline that ran way back to there, was lU'inecl ''Great Wonder I Am." He was undoubtedly' one"'of"Vh'c" 'greatest boars that 1 over lived, but lie died, and other boars took his ph\a;. and hogs are still being raised, ,".nd sorri" of them pretty good hogs at that. .'3ui tin .•. rguments in those days were just :>;; furi'ivir, over hbga as over present-day ooliii'js, and each owner of a great boar was just as insistent that his particular boar was indis[.:er.s^ijle' to ;my hog raiser. The point is pimply this--thc world moves ahead with -•iiii'l disdain for the mouthings of people. Twenty years from now we'll recall this ••Great Debate- of 1944" with somewhat the same quiet humor wo recall "Great Wonder I Am." SHAVING THE HEAD of French women •.vho collaborated with the Germans is simply an expression of mob law. It solved no problem, just humiliated the woman whether justly or unjustly, and satisfied the blood- .hirst of the mob. No doubt there were many 7 'rench women who sold out to the Germans, -viih a percentage probably no higher than i,-:s occurred or would occur in any other •iu;i1ry. fim.h expressions of mob rule -:h(ju!d be deplored rather than applauded. O iHLDMAN, WHO heads the CIO Political Action CummHtce, says that group merely ;imrd to raise 81,500,000! Just pin money!
