That is one of the things a man decides when he buys a war bond. Just how a man figures depends partly on his guess about the future of prices. It' he estimates that prices, in tho pre-war period, are likely to drop to the 1935-3!) figure, then '$75 spent 10 years from now would buy 40 I jj per cent more than now. Of course, the $75 will be S100 by that time. So, a farmer, by holding off 10 years, could buy 60 per cent more then than lie can buy now. That's a pretty big reward for saving. Think about it as you figure out your bond purchases.—Wallaces' Farmer. The foregoing may be interesting as a matter for idle editorial speculation, but for practical purposes it cuts little ice, for long before the ten years are up there will be comparatively few bonds in the hands of the common people. The bond history of World War I is practically certain to be repeated. No sooner had the patriotic urgency of that war disappeared after victory than the average bondholder hastened to cash his bonds. The rush was so strong that the bonds dropped to a discount of ten per cent or more, and within two or three years the bonds were practically all in the hands of the rich, who sought them because the income was then non-taxable. Thereafter the common run of people found that they had not only sold their bonds for less than par but had to pay the interest at par. veil's health. "The life expectancy of Franklin Roosevelt," he said, "is indeed a definite political handicap to his fourth term pretensions." O'Donnell went on to pull back the curtain rudely on this issue. He said the president was "a tired and ailing aged man." Continuing, O'Donnell said: "Four years ago he looked hale arid hearty. Now he is drawn, haggard, and gray." And O'Donnell claimed that White House advisers are now insisting that only profile pictures of Mr. Rqosevelt be taken, because in such pictures \ "the changes wrought by illness in his features are less shocking.'-' Four days later Vice Admiral Mclntire, the • president's personal physician, said: "The stories that he is in bad health are understandable around election time, but they are not true." The doctor was then asked, "But how about the fact that the president's pictures make him look thin?" And McIntire's seemingly somewhat evasive answer was that Mr. Roosevelt hqd merely lost a protuberant tummy and didn't want to get it back. Nevertheless and notwithstanding, the nationwide rumor, true or not, gained such momentum that it was felt politically necessary to attempt to spike it by a personal appearance where hundreds of thousands of voters could see the president and take note that his health seemed to be unimpaired. Accordingly a tour of a New York factory district in an open car was made Saturday, and it was estimated that a cheering crowd of three million people greeted Mr. Roosevelt. The day was windy, chilly, and rainy, but Mr. Roosevelt overrode urgent objections of Mclntire and the secret police to take the weather on the chin and like it. Many an observer or reader of the news must have thought it was a brave thing to do, but foolhardy. Whether this spectacular showing was ef- feotive in its purpose may be doubted. The fact remains that for a year or more the president's news pictures really have made him look "drawn, haggard, and gray," and that impression cannot easily be erased. But how much figure it actually cuts is another question. The nationwide opposition to Mr. Roosevelt's fourth candidacy rests on other grounds, and neither the state of his health nor the prospect that he might not live out HODGEPODGE Webster—A •!•* of various M>- WITH THE DUCK-hunting season on in full force the following reprint of ai column in 1941 might be appropriate.

MIIJ looked et with wonder and unbelief didrit seem ta think so much uv tha cumpeny but tha dog wuz cold and anyway he probably The Rev. A. F. Otto, who serves as vacancy pastor at Fenlon, announces that a call to that church We already have a forecast of what will happen again this time, in the fact that a very large percentage of bonds subscribed for in drives is cashed within a few months. In the War Savings bonds the treasury made an attempt to keep the bonds in "the hands of purchasers by selling $100 ten-year bonds for $75. This may work with some people who are in easy circumstances and have a life expectancy beyond the ten years, but anyone familiar with the financial ways of the people can have little faith that the number of bonds so held to maturity will amount to much. The policy of the Roosevelt administration in keeping interest rates low is not in issue in these remarks, but there can be no question that it makes government bonds unattractive to small-time investors. The returns in income are not enough to attract 'such investors. Moreover, small-time investors are not in a position to speculate or' whether ten years from now they could uso the principal of the bonds for investments which would, in effect, justify keeping ihe bonds by making the money go farther than it would during or shortly after the wars. Throughout this present war period the purchases and investments of the people have been restricted. When the wars end an enormous demand for a thousand and one wants will arise and quickly become a flood. The pressure on bond holdings will then become terrific, and a break-through will be inevitable. This will be only well known human nature at work. Maybe the bonds will not go to a discount this time, but you con bank on it that not long after VE and VW the big-moneyed boys will have the bonds just as they did 20 years ago. Of course the foregoing is no reason against buying bonds now. Whatever the future of the bonds, patriotism demands bond purchases to everyone's limit till victory both east and west is won. What to do with them after victory is a bridge not yet to be crossed. In any event it matters not who holds the bonds in the future, provided the government gets the money needed now for victory. another term has been an open issue in the areas where the opposition is strongest. Sidney's Colored Strip Campaign Dope It is reported on good authority that many democrats of the high command resent Sid- new Hillman's CIO-PAC drive to outdo the regular democratic organization in campaign dope for Roosevelt. But that doesn't halt Sidney, who will be found, if Roosevelt is reelected, claiming that ne-dun-it and is therefore entitled to claim the spoils. And it must be admitted that Sidney's campaign literature is something new, clever, and refreshing in comparison with the oldtime dry-as-dust stuff that both the democrats and the G. O. P. have put out from time immemorial. To prove it, take Sidney's latest, offered to newspapers and everybody else who can spare the necessary pennies.

It has been of rather frequent remark that pictures in the newspapers and magazines made him look old ancj care.vorn. Guarded references of newspn- per correspondents have suggested that Mr. Roosevelt has never satisfactorily recovered from an illness he suffered last spring. Rather pointedly, though again guardedly arid as much behind the scenes as possible, the president's health figured in the selection of a vice presidential candidate by the democratic national convention, and it might be a safe guess that but for that question, Vice President Wallace would have been re- nominated. As it was, the leaders did not want to run the risk of Mr. Roosevelt's death in office, with his mantle falling on the shoulders of a man of such leftist views as Mr. Wallace's. Recently one John O'Donnell, New York Daily News anti-Roosevelt columnist, devoted all his column to the state of Mr. Roose- oTVvents be'come^pre'sident. for Roosevelt this country would have gone to the dogs years ago and will be headed for hell and damnation immediately, if not sooner, in case he is not reelected. Nor is that all of Sidney's portfolio of literature which makes the regular democratic organization's stuff look like 30 cents. He has seven other gems of political literature for sale at 5 to lOc, and they all and severally prove beyond peradventure of doubt that unless Roosevelt is reelected Mr. Hillman will be extremely sad and will not run the democratic party during the next four years. Do We Want Mr, Truman for President? From the Knoxville Journal. Whether or not in the coming election we elect a candidate for vice president who is the kind of a man who would make the kind of president that the nation should have, if by unfortunate circumstances he should become president — that is an important issue in the campaign. The Republicans chose Governor Bricker of Ohio for second place. He is a capable *nan, of unquestioned integrity and has had successful experience in public life. He was generally deemed so deserving that he won hosts of friends in his campaign to secure the republican nomination for president. He is clparly of presidential size and quality. The democratic candidate does not come to the people so well recommended by his past. Harry S. Truman came into political prominence in Missouri as the favorite of Pendergast and his corrupt political machine in that state; his experience in public life was under the direction of that machine until Pendergast was convicted of corruption and the machine cleaned up. In the democratic national convention, Henry Wallace s ruthlessly sacrificed by the powers that dominated the convention — even by President Roosevelt himself; Truman was nominated in his stead because a group of corrupt city bosses demanded it and had the power to compel it. In the event of Truman's election and his possible ascendancy to the presidency, the cprtuationists who managed his nomination would find their way into control of the great ppliticaj power that is at stake. Truman would never have been acceptable to the people as a candidate for the presidency; he should never be acceptable as a man who might by a possible giid art unfprtu.na.te turn and tore the seet out uf Reds pants but didnt hit him and tha end of tha thing whut ya hold on tu went back and socked Looie agin and he sez them dum things is danger- us which they wuz. And Red said that he needed a drink be- cuz tha draft duz like ta give {iim a cold so we all tuk a drink. It tasted perty gud so perty soon we wuz cold agin so we tyk another and becuz Looies fase was swelling up in both tha plases iha gun hit him he wuz needin another so we joineri him so he wuddnt be lonesum, and then we started ta hunt. • . . Perty soon a bird came over whut Looie sez is a duck so we all tuk a shot and a cow over on tha hill let out a bejler and went all hunched up and lit out over tha hill which wuz healthy fer tha cow becuz uv the kind uv shootin we wuz doing it wuzznt safe fer a cow which we mite hev been able ta hit if it stood still. So we shot sum more but we didnt get no dux and Looie wuz yellin thet tha shells didnt hey no bullets in them and "h.e up and shot et tha water in frunt uv him and dam. neer drowned when tha water shot back. And a feller cam over tha hill and sez hows tha shootin and Lqoie tol4 him, and tha fellow sez sum more'which Looie didnt like and Looie sed some mpre and wuri thing led ta another and tha guy sez yiir drunk and Looie sez so whut and tha feller sez hes a duck dick and hes going ta taik us ta town wher wed get tha wurx but Looie was just out frum a jab and I^ed wuz being looked for by meny dicks, so thVey lit out and so did I. But tha dam boots stuck in tha mud an,(J I fell on my fase and tha feller caught me and set on my back and hollered fej help and perty soon another feller came and % wuz heppy becuz I cud get my fase pu(; uy tha mud. And tha dog came back and seejn Looie wuz gone followed me and tha feller sez is thet yur dog and I sez no its Looies and tha guy sez well its yur doe npw. ancj whers his license so it cost' me a buck for thet and tha dog didnt seem ta know so I let it go. And we went ta. town and we went up ta tha judge and he sez whut in that wurld hev ya got there Ed and Ed sez Im a drunk whut wuz shootin caws and I sez I didnt and tha judge sez shut up you so I shut up and tha judg sez Im a bad character an^ thet he shud maijc 'ap example pf me CIA? of shooting innercent cows and then he sez 15 daze in the jug and when, I b.ejlered he sez do I want 30 daze so I spd I wi^s fied and so they put me in ^ha jug, And boss wud ya see Looie and. teU , tha dam dog smells bad and wiid he cum and get tha dog out cuz they put him in tha jalehpuse with, me and tte dpg seemjs J,a like U. —OSCAR OSWALD.
