Sometimes Friends Can Be Very Embarrassing The activities of the Political Action committee of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) discussed recently in these columns have since provoked nationwide attention. Governor Dewey and other republican speakers have raised the question whether PAC is of communistic origin and ideology, and the issue has put the Roosevelt administration in an undesirable position on the defensive. In fact it must seem to many observers that this campaign differs markedly from previous Roosevelt campaigns in that the president is now almost wholly on the defensive. In his 1932-6 campaign he was as boldly on the offensive as Hitler was in the first two or three years of the European war. The opening break in the president's offensive came in the 1940 campaign, when Wlilkie assumed the offensive. Mr. Roosevelt, however, was not wholly on the defensive in that campaign. He was still on the march in Russia, so to speak, and Stalingrad was still in the future. Today the question is whether he is on retreat. Illustrative of the change in the political situation is this present situation as regards the PAC. Mr. Dewey is attacking the PAC and communism boldly and vigorously, and Mr. Roosevelt has thus been forced to the defensive. The attack has compelled Mr. Roosevelt to disavow communistic support, but not without embarrassment, in view of the public Browder endorsement. Undoubtedly the president has also been embarrassed by the activities of Mr. Hillman's PAC. These activities have been too open, too widespread, and -have looked. too much like usurpation of the jurisdiction of the democratic campaign committee. They have provoked twin dangerous political charges: 1. That the CIO is out to seize control of the democratic party; 2. That the PAC is really a communistic organization in disguise. The first charge has already been discussed in these columns. Richard Wilson, the Des Moines Register's Washington correspondent, revealed current comment on the second charge in a Washington dispatch Sunday. Wilson's story was headed, "Is the P. A. C. Red? Capital Debate is On." It is charged said Wilson, "that 82 members of the National Political Action Committee (PAC) have been 'affiliated' with organizations listed by Atty. Gen. Francis Biddle as communist front organizations." This is a majority of the committee, which has 141 members. In his role on the offensive Governor Dewey equals the oldtime 1932-6 Roosevelt fire and boldness of attack — the General Patton sort—in comment on this Browder- PAC front. Last Saturday night at Charleston, W: Va., he cited Browder's recent speech declaring that the reelection of Roosevelt is essential to American communistic aims. Dewey asked why, and answered that the reason lies in the administration's own aims as set forth by Adolph Berle, the well known New Dealer, who said: Over a period of years, the government will gradually come to own most of the productive plants of the United States. And Dewey then clinched that showing by revealing that "a report just released by a congressional committee headed by a democratic United States senator shows there are 55 government corporations and credit agencies with net assets of 27 billions" and the federal government already "owns or operates one-fifth of the manufacturing plants in the country." that any Iowa voter in service abroad was denied a ballot if he took enough interest in the election to ask for one of if any relative asked that one be sent to him. Many such Voters did not trouble themselves to ask for ballots. If ballots had been sent broadcast without request many would not have returned them. This has been demonstrated by previous experience. War correspondents at the front have reported lack of interest among the overseas voters, who have business on their hands that seems to them a lot more important. There may be voters overseas who could not get ballots and send them back in time for election, but they are few. Everybody knows from current exchange of letters with voters overseas that ballots mailed in September would reach such voters in ample time to be returned and received in Iowa before election day. Voters overseas who really want to vote can hardly deny that the state ballots are much more satisfactory than the beaten proposed federal ballot would have been. The state ballots give the complete tickets in the familiar form used at home general elections. The proposed federal ballot was a bob-tailed contrivance which allowed overseas voters to vote only on president, vice president, and members of congress. The democratic charge that the republicans who helped kill the federal ballot were in effect denying the vote to eligibles in service out of the country justifies the retort that all the democrats were interested in was a ballot intended to help reelect Mr. Roosevelt. Mr. Roosevelt repeated this democratic charge in 'his radio address last Thursday night, but Governor Dewey caught him up on it rather neatly Saturday night. The president, bemoaning the alleged fact that the absence of a federal ballot this year would deprive many overseas of the right to vote, remarked that in 1940 61% per cent of the voters of the country actually voted, but Mr. Dewey effectively countered with the revelation that New York ballots had been mailed to 77 per cent of the state's overseas voters. Some states may not have given the same overseas opportunity to vote that Iowa and New York have done, but there have been no such reports unless from the democratic Solid South where the question of voting by Negroes in service abroad may have held up ballot distribution. Such neglect, if any, can, however, har>ly be blamed on republicans. HODGEPODGE Webster A •!•* M *irfat|l ft mixture. DEATH Of Wendell Willkie Sunday came as a shock to the entire nation democrats as well as republicans. It came as the present political campaign began to takj on a new fury, and perhaps as a result sjme significant changes in the political scene may ensue. For it is often small unrelated things upon which elections turn. Perhaps the reason the average citizen is inclined to mourn Willkie' is the fact that every common mart admired Ire fight he put up against the Great Illus on in 1940. Willkie fought with everything he had in him. He fought fairly, honesty, and sincerely for the things he believed right. It is perhaps in this fight that Ihe seeds were spread whch resulted in his death from coronary thombosis. This heart trouble is the disease or injury of a small heart artery that feeds blood to heart muscles. Overstrain of a too active life may :ause injury to the artery by constant derrands above normal upon it. Willkie did strain his heart. In fact many many people who voted for r first of all his "fighting heart" to do battle at every opportuni' 'And the disappointment of THURSDAY. OCTOBER 12, 1944 in- m admired hat led him the election, The Controversy About the Overseas Ballots It must have struck a good many thinking observers that the political hullabaloo over the service voting issue is not justified by the facts, at any rate not in Iowa. The charge is that for a political reason assumed to favor the republican national ticket the eligible service men and women overseas have in effect been deprived of the voting privilege in this election. lowans who know that special ballots were prepared for service men and women overseas and mailed weeks ago find the charge misleading. Under Iowa law any eligible service man or woman anywhere could ask for one of the ballots, and not only that but any relative of a voter in service overseas could have a ballot sent to such voter without request. Many overseas voters did ask for ballots and many relatives did send ballots in un- requested cases. Every county auditor in Iowa faithfully devoted much time to having these special ballots printed and mailed. There is absolutely no basis for a charge The Demo Ruction Down in Oklahoma Northerners are so accustomed to seeing southern states go democratic year' after year that reports-'of important democratic dissatisfaction in such states are received with incredulity. Whatever the disaffection, the southern states are practically always democratic on election day. The public has viewed the recent Texas and other southern mutinies in much that light. In spite of claims, the customary election result has been expected. It has been interesting, however, to read reports of the mutinies. Oklahoma has been one of the states from which political mutiny has for some time been reported, and now come clippings from a Muskogee newspaper which seem to show that the mutiny in that state, as in Texas, is no piece of peanut business. The clippings are of two large advertisements by democrats urging votes for Dewey, and the 'ads' carry Dewey's likeness. The 'ads' are signed by one Frank Buttram, of Oklahoma City, chairman of a Democrats for Gov. Dewey organization which seems to be a statewide affair. The advertisements are addressed to Oklahoma democrats, and one of them is signed by not only Buttram as chairman but by an executive committee of eight representing respectively Tulsa, Mns- kogee, Ardmore, Shawnee, Oklahoma City, Chickasha, Elk City, and Ponca City> One of the advertisements is headed, Let's Return the Government to the'People; the other is headed, Dewey Fighting to Free Our People From Bureaucratic Control. How forthright the advertisements are may be understood from this quotation from the larger 'ad': The Democrats for Dewey organization has bee nfounded because we democrats feel that we must collectively express our opposition to the tactics of the New Deal party that has transferred our own democratic organization into a court-packing« racketeer- dominated, bureaucratic-decreeing. one- man dictatorial system." The other advertisement appeals for funds and incidentally takes a shot at the CIO political Action committee, saying in effect that the Oklahoma mutineers have no access to union coffers for money to support their cause. The Advance has perused these advertisements with interest, but is prepared cheerfully to lose a modest wager that when the votes are counted next month, Oklahoma will again be in the Roosevelt column. * * * 'PA' STILL VOTES FOB M'KINLEY. Story City Herald—Our good friend of the Algona Advance, Editor William Cornelius Dewel, says he enjoyed a "belly laugh" at the serious discussion of the tariff by the Herald editor three weeks ago. Dewel, as we get it, belongs to that fellowship of ostriches who believe the tariff is. no longer i question simply because they don't want to discuss it. We!l, when this war is over, it will be discussed pretty thoroughly — and not least by farmers and their supposed friends, the country town editors. Or what else do all these writers, supposedly "economic experts," mean who keep harping on tearing down the "trade barriers"? which even he must have known beforehand was going against him, was a oilier pill lo be taken. For Willkie had beei shown the promised land—had been enlrusted with leadership—had done his best, though not enough, with that leadership — and was doomed to 40 more years of wandering. It was Willkie fortitude, and belief that America was at heart true and honest and forthright that led him two years ago to begin the battle for renominat on. Willkie probably was shrewd enough 1o know that he could not receive it except as a miracle. What he probably wanted was lo impress on his chosen party the principles for which he stood. He succeeded to a greater extent than the average person imagin ;s in thai objective, for it was Wendell Willkie who convinced the isolationist-minded •'*hat America is a part of the • The defeat of his candidacy was handwriting on the wall middle west vorld. in Wisconsin hat he could not ignore as he had other political signs. Perhaps it could be said with some degree of truth thai his heart was broken for Willkie never after had the fire o:: the former days. The republican platform at the Chicago convention was not all that Willkie desired, but despite that fact it was nore truly a .Willkie than a Dewey platfom. The other bitter 'disappointments Willkie had received led him to classify this platform as another of the same, Ihough he public y slated that it was way ahead of the democratic platform. Willkie was a man who could have been president if he had come in lormal times, for he was the type of man who catches a public's imagination. But th2 times were not normal. Willkie was not ccmpeting with another man for the presidency, but rather with an Illusion, shadowy and lofty, yel practical about such things as machine politics. And Willkie led the kind of zampaign that was all thai could be asked for by his op;at length ev- He talked so their bite and became "same old stuff." Rocsevelt did not defeat Willkie. Willkie defeated himself. It is freely admitted by democrats that they did not favor a third te|rm. II could third term— 'to fight the ponents. He rattled off at gr erywhere on every occasion, much that his arguments lost have defeated Roosevelt—Ihe but Willkie chose instead champ on his own ground." That was testimony to Willkie's intestinal fortilude, bul nol to his judgment. And it was a fear of Willkie's judgment that led many to vote again for Roosevelt. Since Wisconsin Willkie hss become the Great Enigma. Some have said he was sulking. Some have said he was disgusted with politics. Some have said he would bolt to Roosevelt. Some have N said he would come out strong for Dewey. It's anybody's guess. Probably Willkie knew his physical condition better than the public. Perhaps he had had physical warnings thit he could no longer call upon his heart for It is difficult to believe the strong-willed forthright man was would have sulked, But Willkie's death will br a more than casual considers and prospects of life of candidates, a condition that was rather markedlj the democratic convention tha undue strains, shaggy-headed that Willkie ng to the fore tion of health recognized at shelved Wallace for Truman.

Judge Quarton was making so many speeches in his Bull Moose campaign for congress that, like Willkie at the laltcr's start-out four years ago, he was so hoarse he could hardly speak. j The Methodists were rejoicing' because the Rev. F. C. Taylor had been returned as pastor. Last Thursday, precisely 30 years later, lacking two days, he was celebrating his 70lh birthday at Salem, Ore., and reading congratulatory messages from old friends here. Wm. C. Stcele was advertising ! Styleplus suits for men at $17; and overcoats at the same price. • Joe Mistoach was offering suits as' low as $15, and special values at] $25 to $30. This popular gent, 'Bob' James, when did ho come here? Well, exactly 30 yeai-s ago, and the Enterprise at Corning was sad because he was leaving, and Mrs. James's E. F. R. club had given her a farewell party. (The Enterprise added that the "young" couple had one child, and it is believed that the "child" can be seen at the James drug almost any day now.) —#— Algona was agog over news that a young man named McCurley had been arrested here on charges of implication in murder of two men and a woman in Kansas. Say, here is a real bclieve-it- or-not for Ripley: Henry Turner (grandfather or great-uncle of the Turner boy who was killed in the | Pearl Harbor Jap attack) had I gone fishing in the river a half j mile below the Black ford bridge I and had caught an alligator two, feet long! (It belonged to a man ! named Jentz and had escaped • four months before.) There wasn't any excuse for an Algona women to go without due powdering in October, If) 14. Druggist E. W. Lusby was offering a full pound of talcum for only 25c. The Advance was advising Doctor Fellows and A. J. Keen to settle down nnd behave like the granddads they had become when a son was born to Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Keen. (But Doc came around next clay and threatened to sue the Advance for libel. The ''boy," he said wns a girl.) Clare Laird, who was here over , Sunday (1944), had quit the local P. O. and gone to Annapolis to enter the U. S. naval academy. G. O. P. Chairman A. L. Peterson was advertising the county ticket: Dye,- toi,repsesertlaiive; Beardsley, auditor; 'Lew' Jenkinson, treasurer; Joe Jenks, clerk; Van Ness, county attorney; Agnes M. Laidley, recorder; W. IS. Laird, coroner. (Everybody but Dye and Jenkinson won.) Mart Weaver was telling one of his fishing tales, and maybe this one was true: The Weavers had been weekend guests of Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Adams at the Okobojis, and while they were fishing near another boat a big pike surfaced, and a man in the other boat caught it by hand. (The pike had come up and was easy prey because a crappie was wedged in its throat.) —it- Harry Tremain, first landlord of the present Algona hotel who had moved on to the Dyckman hotel at Minneapolis, had been indicted there on false representation charges against a securities company in which he was interested. (Never heard how ho carre out, but apparently he never had lo servo time.) One day in early October, 1914, Mrs. Thos. Robertson started her car on State, and two seconds later was horrified to discover that she was pushing a prostrate 400-lb. man down the street. His bulk stopped the car, ho got up uninjured, inspected the remarkably clean surface of the paving which his body had swept brushed himself off, and went calmly about his business. Ralph Miller had been honored with a place on the general committee of the state pharmaceutical association. (No, it wasn"t our present-day Banker Ralph- it was Druggist Borchardt's predecessor who now resides in California and comes back now and then to look after his Kossuth farms.) —#— ' Tom. Murtha had been killed .when his 15-ton traction engine broke down a bridge east of Burt. His neck was broken. The same week a Lu Verne schoolboy named Jos. Comefort, was killed when a car in which he was en route to a West Bend basketball game was upset. (If Arthur Legler, Harold Phillips, and Arthur Hof are still in the Lu Verne area, their recollection of the disaster is probably still lively, for they were riding with the Comefort boy.) The Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune had joshed the Advance about a typographical error which said Algona taxes had been boosted 15 "miles," and the Advance had twitted the Spirit Lake Herald for a reference to "Dame Cupid " The "Register & Leader" had begun a series of articles intended to prove that Iowa was prosperous, and the Advance wanted to know, "doggone it," who doubled Ihe fact. These were samples of the common editorial amenities of the day. The editors had begun to get away a little from references lo rivals as thieves, etc. FENTON HAS A BUSY WEEK OF SOCIAL EVENTS Fonton, Oct. 11— A family gathering was held Sunday at the George Jentz home, and attending wore Mr. and Mrs. Walter Jentz, Howard Anderson, U.
