PAGE S1X_ KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALGONA, IOWA TUESDAY, JUNE 19, HODGEPODGE Webster—A slew of various ingredients, a mixture. BY DUANC E. OCWEI -* THE THEME SONG of the well-known San Francesco chewing match could very well be Don't Fence Me In judging by the efforts of the delegates to get under cover when anything of major importance comes up. • JUDGING^ MERELY by the reports in the papers the el- ectijons in England are pretty near as exciting as one of our knockdown and drag out political brawls. And the chances are just the same that whoever hapens to make the grade when the tumult and shouting is ended gets the support of the whole country. if CONGESSMEN are doing a hangup job of beating their chests. They are divided into two camps—one screaming how poor the congressmen are, and the other side moaning and crying big salty tears over the poor taxpayer. Truth is that the average congressman is a durn fool for taking the job unless he has enough dough laid by to tide him over. For this great country of ours raises its nose to high heaven and lets out a howl that •shames the permanent guests in Wades, when congress thinks it should"'-have a little more money to get both ends within speaking distance of each other. But every congressman also knows that he's a dead duck in the next ;„ J; election if he boosts his own pay- The public's attitude is: "Let the poor goop starve—he asked for it- diddlent he?"

That's the production-record of the Dairy Cow — the response of America's farms to the urgent demands of War — incvrased production that promises Better Living in the peacetime years ahead. Peac.e .will not immediately splvc today's dairy shortages. For a time .\vc must help feed less fortunate people. But as other countries recover, the supply of dairy products for America will be greater than ever. •Will it be an over-supply? Not necessarily, because our nation as a \vhqlc has never used dairy foods as generously as good nutrition requires. So hold to your dreams of hcarly cheese sauces — of c^gs scramblc() with evaporated milk — of ice cream with the old-time goodness — of extra milk bctwcen-meals — or toast where you taste the butter with every delicious bile. Before too long, your family can regularly have all .these treats', and many more — thanks to our higher level of dairy protluc- .tion. Eventually it \yill enable all America to cnjo.y mor,e dairy foods than ever fcefoie — to reach higher standards of health and nutrition, that will continue to require tb<> .full output of our great : dairy stales.
