"•MARCH WASffiNOTCJN: As congres convened In Washington last week for the special session called b; the Pfesiwnt, Franklin Delam Roosevelt set forth the immediate ills of the 17. 8. as he saw them, suggested what should be doni about them: 1. Alarmed by New Deal tMWtt competition, private utilities coati panies have postponed an estimate! $3,200,000,000 worth of construction To a press conference the preslden suggested that the governmen would "co-operate" with private utilities. 2. A 17. S. Rousing boom, which has been predicted constantly since 1931 and has as constantly failec to materialize, has long been proposed as the classic remedy for the country's economic ills. The President last week promised to ask congress for legislation to help such a boom, revealed that Marrlner EC cles and other recent White House visitors were actually a committee appointed to find ways to interest 'private capital in backing it i 3. for the past two year*, tnttmen has been groaning that taxes on undistributed profits and capital gains are in effect a capital levy and a severe obstacle to recovery. Ind icatlona last week were that thfl President was in favor of modifying both, if only as .a token of what his friends wished to be regarded as his "changed attitude" toward business in general. In his message' to congress the president emphasUed that any such tax revisions should be made far the particular T>erieflt of "small businessmen." • • • FRIENDLY WORDS ADMINISTRATION WASHINGTON: The Academy of Political Science, a prosperous group of U. S. business men, professors and economists, last week, gathered for its 57th annual meeting at Manhattan's Hotel Aitor, beard a newsmaking speech on "The Federal Budget" by U. S. Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr. But before Mr. Morgenthau got a chance to say anything at all, he heard two speeches ably marshaling the grievances of Business against the New Deal. As alert as a college debater, he thoughtfully pursed his lips while Virginia's Senator Harry F. Byrd and Partner S. Parker Gilbert of J. P. Morgan & Co. proceeded to needle the New Deal's fiscal policy. As Secretary Morgenthau uprose • for his rebuttal, the applause was more polite than enthusiastic. It was to come far more spontaneously as, adjusting his pince-nez, the Secretary carefully read the most satisfying public words Business has heard from Washington since the inception of its "Breathing Spell"" two years ago: Budget: "We deliberately used an unbalanced Federal budget during the past four years to meet a great emergency. That policy has succeeded. The emergency that we faced in 1933 no longer exists. I am fully aware that many of our problems remain unsolved ... I am further aware that Borne persons contend that another great spending program is desirable to ward off the riak of another great business depression . . . But ... I have reached the firm conviction that the domestic problems which face us today are essentially different from those which faced us four years ago. Many measures are required for their solution. One of these mea- •ures . . . is a determined movement toward a balanced budget." Deficit: "Our total receipts for this year were estimated in the President's budget summation ol October 19 at about $6,650,000,000 and our total net expenditures a' about $7,345.000,000, leaving an estimated net deficit of $695.000,000. "To attain an ordinary balancing of the budget next year—that Is, a Jlmnes Established 1865 ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25,1937 fen Page*. VOL. 36.—NO. 47 2 Sterilized in Kossuth, Records Show With the anbject of sterilization under some discussion In various parts of this state, and other states, it was disclosed this week that an Algona girl had recently undergone such an operation, with consent of her guardian, and in her best interests. County officials stated that only- two such cases had occurred in Kossuth county in the past few years. In the case in question, the girl, now 20 years old, had been confined in an insane asylum, under observation. Doctors described her case as an over-development of sexual instincts. The girl had previously been confined in a reform school. She is now back in Algona. One county official explained the procedure for requesting and obtaining sterilization. In the first place, permission of parents, guard- inn, or some relative directly responsible for the pnrty under consideration must give complete approval. Then n medical examination must be made, and the results such ns to prove definitely that nn operation would not be injurious, and might help remedy whatever ailment or problem to be solved. Finally, permission from the state board of ( health must also be obtained, after n full review of the mat- ter. Recently, officials said, a request was made by a Lakota couple who have h large family, for a sterilization operation but the request was refused by state officials due to the fact that the request was made only to prevent further propagation in the family, and not because of any ills or disease in either one of the couple. The other rnse of sterilizat'on in the county from somp lime ago, was that of the mother cf a family of eight, on the rounty at the present time. The mother said recently that she wished she had undergone the operaticn after her second child arrived. 13 Court Cases Thrown Out In Cleanup of Docket Here OMcken Thief Pleads Guilty, Sentenced by Judge Davidson PETIT JURY WILL REPORT TUESDAY balance after full provision for ac cruing liabilities for old-age benefi payments, but exclusive of debt re tirement— it would be necessary to I accomplish a net improvement of about $700.000,000.

In The WEEK'S NEWS Current Events Photographed for The Algona Upper Des Moines NOT EVEN HURT—Selfridge Field, Michigan: Flying back to his base field, recently, an army pilot struck a maze of wires a few hundred feet off the ground in one of the strangest accidents recorded in the Air Corps. Nearly crashing from the impact he righted the plane and continued on his way, with nearly 600 feet of heavy wire coiled about the landing gear and motor cowling. The wire cut neatly through the wheel pants, the rubber tires and steel brake drums. In attempting to land the flat tire, concurred in mid-air, tipped the plane over. The flyer was not hurt.

It seems that wearing silk hose seems to be a luxury dear to their hearts, and in a majority of cases even possibility of stopping a war would not swerve them from wearing silk stockings. United States women's clubs in east have advocated a campaign to stop the Chinese-Japanese war, by having United States women boycott silk stockings and in their place wear cotton stockings. Their contention is that the production of silk SET DATES FOR 7 MORECOUNTY H.D. A.

Algona's vote was six to four against the idea. How They Fee? About It Here are the answers of Algona women: Mrs. Vic Parsons: "No, I don't think I'd wear cotton stockings. I don't think we should get mixed up in their war at all. If the United States gets mixed up with them, something might come of it." Mrs. Ora Larson: "No, because I simply don't like wearing cotton lose, and I personally don't believe that boycotting Japan's silk industry would effect the silk hose industry lere." Mm. Frank Oelgel: "I really think that the United State should boycott Japan's silk Industry, and also heir toy Industry. I am wearing cotton hose at this time, so am dong my part." Betty Sheridan: "Let the Japanese and Chinese fight their own war, and I'll wear silk stockings." Mm. Fred Bchlmer: "If it would lelp stop the war by wearing cotton lose, I would be glad to wear cotton lose." Mrs. Don Gardner: "I would rather do anything than have a war.' Would Hurt America Pauline Van Horn: "No, because Lhe stockings I wear are manufactured by an American plant from American silk, and if the boycott were enforced it would throw thousands of American workers out ol employment in our American silk factories." Mr*. Edythe L. Dalley: "No, as far as I'm concerned I think too much of the way my legs look, let them fight." Delia Welter: "Yes.

Charge Unfair Distribution in Upper House Favors So. Iowa SECOND MEETING At EMMETSBtJBGr A definite campaign to'obtain another state senator from this section of Iowa was began, Tuesday, at a meeting of delegate* from Sm counties at Spent***. :i ? ,/..•,.' Counties geeklng! a- division n» that an eXW* stutffMnatnr ean,be elected are-"day, Dickinson, Emmet, Palo Alto and Kossuth. Reason for the desire to obtain another state senator la that while the five counties named total 80,000 population, some southern • Iowa, group* with only 18,000 population have state senators. Thus the balance of power In the upper house of the Iowa assembly is distinctly In favor of the southern counties. KohlhaM Attends State Representative Phil Kohlhaas attended from Kossuth county, and stated that a second meeting had been called for Dec. 8 at Emmetsburg. The suggestion greeted with the most favor, was one to split Clay, Dickinson and Emmet into one state senatorial district (population 39,945), and put Palo Alto and Kossuth into another (population 40,850). If necessary, or desirable the group demanded that one senatorial district be taken away from the southern counties in the state, now over-represented, and another added to the northern part of the state. Disobeyed Laws Representative Kohlhaas declared that there is a state law which orders the state assembly to check up oh the population trend every 10 years, or the year after the regular government census, and If figures show that a shift in population has occurred, a corresponding change in senatorial districts be made. This has not been done since 1911, Mr. Kohlhaas declared, and that was quite a time ago. It looks as though the five counties mentioned were really going out after 'another state senator seat down at Des Moines. Final i val would reat with Itself, however. anklets in the summer."
