KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE A Weekly Newspaper, Entered as . SECOND CLASS MATTER DECEMBER 31, at the postoffice at Algona, Iowa, under the Act of March 8, 1879. TUESDAY. JANUARY 16, 1945 908, THREE HICKENLOOPER PROPOSALS Senator Hickenlooper rel artd news-writing style of the modern weeklies. When he entered the newspaper business, arid for long'thereafter, type was still: set by hand, and nearly all Weeklies published only four pages of their own setting and printing. They were forced to econprtiize on both space and time. There.was little or no room <5r tim< for detail, nor for the new* bulk of the county seat Ex Libris ...By William Sharp FATS ON THE NOSE He offered three su;ges- weeklies of today. etired The .handicaps of the weeklies _ T „ , , • 1 • of 60 years ago compelled the as Governor Jan. 3 but, ni-ver- ^Hon to adopt a trenchant writ- the less gave his farewell mes- j n g style. There were no inhibi- sage as governor before the legis- tions then against mixing com- lature in joint session last Tiurs- ment with news. The result was — -- - • ' a more interesting way of presenting -local news — what thelx was of it—than the present dryly factual style. Mr. Miller was almost the only weekly editor of that school left, and his news columns were as readable as a family letter from home. Mr. Miller also had the ways of the oldtime printer. Setting or day. tions: 1. Increase in the governor's salary. j 2. Purchase or construction of a home for the governor. 3. Four-year terms for state officials. A bill to raise the governor's salary from $7500 to $10,000' was introduced in the senate shortly distributing type, kicking a job- after the legislature The presidents of the state; university and the state cdllege (Ames) have been receiving 410,000, and it has seemed incoiiigru- uous that the governor received less. i Some senators would go farther. They think it is hardly eriough merely to raise the governor to the peer of state underlings in convS Pres^running off the weekly edition, hurriedly writing the news, keeping the books, a hundred other duties brooked no unnecessary interruption. When he was busy Mr. Miller wasted no time on mere callers—as many and many disconcertedly found out. Th e .prudent °* the United States would have got short shrift in a call when Mr. Miller was not at his seldom leisure. But when point of salary. As head of the' he-did have leisure no host ex- government the governor should' ce iJ e d him receive the state's highest salary. The dignity of his office arid of the state both require it, as these senators see it. - . '''•'. The new president pro terfipore of the senate suggested '$1-2,000, water over the Gazette; t.t long last, finis, is written. But not, contemporaries hope, for Mr. Miller himself. If, after so many years of toil and sweat, he can stand adding that $15,000 wouldnjt'be leisure, let there be peaceful, out of line.

The war hastened the demise of many small town newspapers, but they were slowly dying anyhow. The automobile and paved roads had created conditions which led to their decay. It was not that, however,, which brought about the recent discontinuance of the Livermore Gazette. W. F. Miller, the publisher, was financially independent and could have continued tne Qa- zette indefinitely regardless of patronage. It was only that after 63 years the publisher was worn out and could not go On. At 83 the good health which had sustained him so long began to hrpalr " break. The Gazette is missed 'exchange 1 tables of newspapers. True, it was pretentious paper; it was (Jin the fiearby not a Small, and there were only four pages of home print. But it had a quality pf editorship which, made it w<ip£orhj£.among other editors and won their respect. Mr. ] filler's editorials were more interesting than the outgivings of mtst editors of far larger papers in larger towns. [ ; There yites indefinable attraction also in his news columns'. He never went in for the headings there. DON AKRE SAYS ALASKA NOT SO TERRIBLY COLD Thos. Akre, former Algona grocer now employed at the Kent Motor Co. garage, recently received a newspaper clipping from his son Donald, who is in service and at present is stationed at Anchorage, Alaska.

December as a _ whole had been at its warmest on ;record there, but the highest temperature was 47 above on Dec. 10. The lowest temperature wlas 23 below on Dec. 6.
