"Let the people know the truth and the country Is safe,"—Abraham Lincoln. PLANNING THE CITY'S FUTURE Cities, like people and businesses, never stand still: they either go ahead or slide backward. Kossuth county has a planning board, chiefly concerned with correlating' a program for the progress of the county as a whole, with especial regard to agriculture. Algona. as a city, could possibly stand an organization somewhat along the same line, but with special attention to building and bettering the city of the future. What we have in mind is this. We have two service organization. Rotary and Kiwanis, two chamber of commerce groups, Junior and Senior, the Legion and Auxiliary, the Veterans of Foreign Wars. the city council, the park board, the Parent-Teacher association, the Woman's club, and various other groups. They all have their own certain purposes, duties and functions. If a representative from each of the above groups, and others connected with civic life in the community, could be appointed, and meet occasionally, it would be possible to have a representative group of all sections of the city, all classes of people, and all divergent interests assembled as one. To them could go suggestions for city improvement, for study, consideration and either united action or rejection. Even The Man About Town might be put on the city planning committee; he frequently cracks out a worthwhile suggestion or Idea that has more truth than fiction at its core. There are matters pertaining to children's playground activities both summer and winter, beautifying parts of the city, general city improvements as to zoning, transient peddlers, sewage disposal, and many other things, suggestions that might aid State street merchants in obtaining building improvements from landlords, aid to such an event as the Charity ball—all functions more or less of other groups, but such that a coordinated Planning Board •could be of immense help and assistance. We can sit idly by, believing that what we have Is fine, and letting future developments apd Improvements take their own course in their own sweet time. But a sounder program would be one that found a representative body of citizens planning and thinking about Improvements that can be made—and must be made—to keep Algona ahead or of the parade in these modern times, RURAL ELECTRICITY FOR KOSSUTH After some months of preliminary work, the first announcement of plans for electrifying some 300 miles of rurnl territory in Kossuth county has been made. They arc still a long way from completion. There is no good reason why farm homes should not be equipped as modernly as city homes. Electricity will be the answer to many of the problems in the way of such modernization. But, let's keep one thing in mind. The Rural Electrification Administration docs not mean to DONATE anything to the farmer. The REA setup will advance money for construction. but it is not charity. Farmers signing up for it are expected to pay, over a period of years, enough back to take care of the original cost of construction. And that is as It should be. Some folks seem to have the idea that the REA is giving away millions; such is not the case. Money is simply being loaned to help make possible something that otherwise would probably be impossible for many years. True, some communities such as Irvingt.on. have formed their own cooperative, and are offering exactly the same type of service that REA will offer All public utility cornpar.ios are doing likewise, hut until recently, they kept the cost .so high that only the more well-to-do could iiffon! rlt< trii-ity.

Tb Is uo black mark a,.' iin.-,t Ford here. But Foi organization, nnd n vast maority of his men, do not want any dealings with John L. Lewis and the C. I. O. And the government says It must. The vast Ford holdings are owned by Henry Pord, his son. Edscl, and their wives. They have money enough so they would keep off the relief rolls if they simply closed down their plants. There are 30.000 men employed in one Ford plant alone. If Ford should quit business, it would be hard to estimate the number of men who would be out of jobs. There is a Ford agency In every community of any consequence in the entire country. Most of these would nave to shut down if Ford quits. If the Lewis organization and the labor board would direct their energies to those sweat shop concerns which are exploiting labor, paying starvation wages, and require the employees to work under intolerable conditions, public opinion would be with them. But to start war against Ford, where wages and working conditions are ideal, is not in accordance with public opinion, and Lewis, and the New Deaf Labor Board will find this out in short order. * • • Says "Dick" .Misunderstood Htimbolrlt Republican: Senator L. J. Dickinson has announced his candidacy for the Iowa republican nomination for the United States Senate next year. The senator is probably the most misunderstood man ni Iowa politics today. He has been falsified by the New Dealers until a majority of the people believe that he is an enemy of agriculture. And yet everyone acquainted with political history knows that he was the prime factor back of the McNary-Hnugen bills and other measures seeking to aid the farmers away back when tho real old guard of the republican party had not yet waked up to the situation.

HEW TO THE LINE— LET THE CHIPS FALL: One wonders how come two Iowa highway patrol cais are both so concentrated in the down-town section of Algona in the middle of the afternoon, that they can be among the first to reach a chimney fire— well, maybe that's where the traffic violators are thickest. • • * So little Interest was evidenced in the annual meeting of the Kossuth fair association that not even the small number required to make a quorum was present, and it was necessary to recruit additional folks by telephone to legally transact business.

Prepared by the Editors of TIME The Weekly Newsmagaxine TVA CLEARWASHINGTON: Into Chatta nooga's crowded U. S. District court room last week strode the black robed members of the first of the new three-judge Federal tribunals authorized under the Federal Courl Reform Act of 1937 to hear cases involving the constiutionality of an act of Congress. Since November 15 they have been hearing the plea of 18 Southern utility companies that the Tennessee Valley Author ity be enjoined from the sale of electric power and that the TVA Act be declared unconstitutional. Immediate aim of the suit, which 'ommonwealth & Southern's Wendell P. Willkie and his associates tad planned as a last stand in the three-year-old legal fight against TVA, was to stop the sale of elec- ricity generated by the three TVA dams already built; to restrict development of four dams now under construction and a fifth authorized but not yet begun; to prevent TVA >om getting congressional funds or four more dams. TVA attorneys maintained that the dams were designed primarily for flood| control, improvement of navigation j and national defense. The company I attorneys maintained that they were designed primarily to generate and sell electric power and to drive their private competitors out of the utility buslnosa. AB expected, the court accepted the wording o* UM TVA-Act-aft* the testimony of TVA experts as proof that the TVA is an all-around wat- and local health officers for their Information and guidance. Presuming that the 130,000,000 U. S. Inhabitants went through just what the 2,660,000 did, Dr. Parran reported: • ' Every day one out of 20 people is too sick to go to school or work, or attend his customary activties. Every man, woman and child <on the average) in the nation suffers ten days of incapacity annually. The average youngster Is sick in bed seven days of the year, the average oldester 35 days. Two million five hundred thousand people (429?' of the 6,000.000 sick every day) suffer from chronic diseases—heart disease, hardening of the arteries, rheumatism, and nervous diseases. Sixty-five thousand poeple are totally deaf: 75,000 more are deaf and dumb; 200,000 lack a hand, arm, foot or leg: 300,000 have permanent spinal injuries; 500,000 are blind; 1,000,000, more are permanent crlp- 3!es. Relief and low-income families are sick longer and more often than REVERSE ENGLISH— LONDON: Soccer Is somewhat to England what baseball Is to the U S.—the most popular professional sport While 23-year old Joe Dl Magglo last week demanded more than the $25,000 offered him to play baseball for less than six months this year, British soccer players were engaged in a British version of the American hold out. With business-like dignity they demanded that their minimum wage be raised from $20 to $25 a week and their maximum from $40 to $45. For his weekly $40, a top-notch British soccer professional is expected to play two bruising games a week for eight months of the year, is traded from one club to another (sometimes for\ as much as; $50,000), may be a hero to 90,K)0 cheering spectators but can hope for nothing more than his standardized, weekly wage. —o— HEADS UP— WASHINGTON: As a workman who uses his muscles gets bigger ones, so also does the head of an ntellectual who uses his brain con- tantly get bigger and bigger dur- ng his life. So thinks Smithsonian nstitution's Anthropologist Ales irdlicka who has asked the world's ' brainy people who find their heads going up in size to let him know about It. The Smithsonian last week nounced that it had received helpful testimony from Sir Flinders Petrle, British archealogillst who has done more than any other man alive to recreate the ancient civilization of Egypt Sir Flinders, 84, describes himself as "quite sound and normal." At 20, he wore a size 6'i hat; at 30, size 7 to 7 1-8; at 40, size 7>i: at 50, size 7H. After he reached 60 no standard size would fit him. PROUDER BEAUTIES— BERLIN: In Nazi idealogy the paternal state watches over the acts, minds, morals and even the manners of Its children. So last week self-confident young Baldur von Schlrach—who although only 30 is generally rated high in the Nazi better-financed families; but they importations. Party as head of the Hitler Youth organization—decided something should be done to make Germany's •marriageable daughters more attractive, decreed beauty culture. Henceforth, all German girls between 18 and 21 must be members of a league whose name is "Work, Beauty and Faith", whose object Is the beautiflcatlon of women by such proper Aryan measures as physical culture and rhythmic dancing—but not by the use of lipsticks and other cosmetics which are vicious foreign three funnels—the debris, gooc scrap, lashed to the deck for th voyage. While reporters trampe through three years of dust on last Inspection trip, careless black smiths started a small fire. Some one had recently stolen two bl paintings. Then her imported sea men began negotiating for the sam wage as the U. S. crew, delayed he last departure for several days. Steaming at 15 knots the "Levla than" is now making a ten-day non stop voyage for scrapping at th 1,500-acre naval base off the littl village ot Rosyth—her sole passen ger an auctioneer, housed in th Imperial Suite, listing her furnish ings for public sale. Once the"'pridi of the American Merchant Marine" the "Leviathan" cost (with repair and rebuilding) over $30,000,000 was sold to Sheffield and Glasgow metal firms' for $732,000, plus an estimated $40,000 for the journej to the scrap yard. At the helm o a big ship for the last time, Cap tain Binks lamented: '1 know ships of her type do not pay these days with such vessels as the "Norman die" and the "Queen Mary" and other new ship's. But I do fee sad to realize their day is gone because my day has gone, too. FLUNK INSURANCE- PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island: A roup of business-minded Prov- dence College seniors last week latched a new kind of academic security, the Students' Protective Insurance Co., and next semester they will begin insuring undergraduates against scholastic failures. Premiums will range from 50c for freshmen to 35c for seniors. For the student who falls, the company will pay college make-up examination fees—$2 for the first try, $5 for the next two. The company will give policy-holders tips on how to pass. call doctors less often. Concluded Dr. Parran: 'It is apparent that inadequate diet, poor lousing, the hazards of occupation and the instability of the labor mar- cet definitely create immediate lealth problems," WASHINGTON: The first Roosevelt Birthday Balls in 1934 netted Said Leader von Schirach: "At this period, the care of the body and elegance are educational necessities for feminine youth.

Since 1934 it has made a total income of $2,087,497 by selling power to 17 municipalities and 15 co-operatives In four states—Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia. Many localities have been helped to buy or build their own distributing systems by PWA loans and grants of which up to 45Cr may be outright gifts. This month when the Supreme Court upheld the legality of such PVVA assistance, the way was cleared for releasing $148,917,803 in approved grants which had been held up for three years, and a good share of the money went to localities in the TVA area. On one vital point court and companies were in agreement; both found that TVA could sell power cheaper than the private utility companies and fully intended to do so. But, though "the record presents evidence of substantial future damage to these complainants", the court found that such damage constituted no legal injury. This decision, barring a reversal by an increasingly New Dealish Supreme Court, swept away the legal obstacles to a full-fledged public utility program. —o— CLERICAL IMAGINATIONWASHINGTON: Revealed during a Senate Public Lands Committee hearing last week was the strange tale of Reno Stittdy, $2.300-a-year chief voucher clerk in the National Park Service of the Interior Department, who in 1934 created in his own imagination a whola CCC ramp in Virginia's Shenandoah National Park. The government had never dreamed of Mr. Stitely's camp but he gave it an imaginary supervisor and eight imaginary foremen. Then he made out payroll vouchers and sent them to the War Department, which pays all National Park Service employees who do conservation work. Unfortunately, he could not make up imagmery CCC boys because they are not paid through the Park Service. For three and u half years Clerk Stitely led a more abundant life, collected 1,116 checks totaling $84,000. Once, in a burst of generosity, he gave two of his imaginary foremen raises. Now and then he put one of them on the sick list. The reason the imaginary employees were not discovered sooner, according to Interior Department investigators, was that the Park Service, short of real employees, was several months behind in its books. But the dream camp was I finally found when Heno Stitely, ! grown devil-mi.y-care, put his im- j aginary me/i on actual rolls paid by the Interior 1-itpartment. The federal district court in the District ol I'uluinbiu. jiiaki/jg no allowances for the liveliness of Keno Stitely's imagination, has imposed on him a. i.'itj.OOO Jim- and a jaiJ sente/jct- of .->ix to I'i >eai:,.

Surgeon General Thomas Purrun by inquiring VV'PA workers wt-rt- the health anil economic records of 2,660,000 people ig i;i every part of the U. S. every type of community, in evt-ry economic level of society untl aye group. From these Sur- gto/i General Parruu prt-uaiecJ a I reliminary report on the nation's health, last wt-fck sect it to state two together only $353,000. Of this $2,159,000 total, $809,000 remained in the home towns of the dancers for local institutions, $241,000 went to various medical schools for research. The remainder went to the Georgia Warm Springs Foundation, a private organization which operates a spa in the central Georgia mountains where the president occasionally went to swim after becoming paralyzed by poliomyetlitis. After paying off mortgages and putting up new buildings, Georgia Warm Springs had accommodation i for 300 infantile-paralytics at $21 per week, and some 75 charity cases. Since Georgia Warm Springs is now self-sustaining and public Interest has waned, it was decided that the $3,000,000 revenue expected from this year's birthday celebration should go to financing a new National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis devoted to research. As Franklin D. Roosevelt last week prepared to enroll with U. 8. Surgeon General Thomas Parran as Founder No. 1 of this Infantile Paralysis Foundation (enlistment fee: $1), he discovered he had no money, was obliged to borrow from Press Secretary Stephen Early. When U. S. church organizations were asked to support and promote their local President's Birthday Balls, the Louisville, Ky., Council of Churches declined. Its reason: "We don't approve of dancing." —o— FOR RICHER, FOR POORERROME: In the days when Benito Mussolini was a rabid, stump-speaking young Socalist, he used to demand free lunches for Italian school children at the expense of the state. Last week by Fascist decree school lunches were made compulsory throughout Italy, but not at the expense of the state. Rich moppets will be charged enough to pay for their lunches and those of poor moppets as well. Rich or poor, every Italian school child will be required, before eating school lunch to say this grace: "O Duce, I thank you for what you give me to make me grow healthy and strong! O Lord God, protect II Duce, so that he may be long preserved to Fascist Italy:" I.M MORTALS— COOPERTOWN, New York: In sleepy little Cooperstown, 99 year* ago, Civil War General Abner Doubleday invented baseball; but not until 1^07, 14 years after his death, did a research committee deli/iitely establish Cooperstown an baseball's birthplace. Civic-proud Cooperstownians purchased tiiu original baseball field, .spent $2ij,OGu to transform it into a modern ball park and public playground, narnt-d it Doubleclay iitld. Three years ago, in anticipation of the looth birthday of the game, baseball bigwigs and benefactors joined hands to make. Cooperstown a bigger, better shrine. To preserve its treasures, ba&eball sentimentalists decided tu build an iiapotting threc-btory colonial brick museum. To immortalize its herpes, baseball administrators voted to establish llit-i-tin a Baseball Hall of Fame to take the form of bronze plaques placed around the first floor exhibition hall. Last week the Baseball Writers Association of America, in ita third annual election, chose Gruver Cleveland Alexander to join the 13 Immortals already selected: Ty Cobb, YORK: Hired in South Shields, England, fast month for a "special job" under command of Cunard White Star's retired Captain John W. Blnks, 65 British seamen last week emerged from third class of the liner "Beren- garia" in New York. Their "special job" with the help of 40 Canadians and 40 U. S. engineers and firemen —was to take the famed "Leviathan" on her 301st and last sea voyage to be scrapped in England. Many were the "Leviathan's" final indignities. The two masts that once reached for the cky were bobbed 78 feet to let them under th" Firth of Forth Bridge's 150-ft. arch Everett Robinson Helps Nab Bandit Everett Robinson, former Algona boy, and well known here where he was an assistant in the Council Oak grocery, under Chris Wallukalt, manager, figured prominently in the apprehension of a holdup man at Sioux Falls, S. D., four minutes after the robbery of the Council Oak store of which Robinson is now manager. The robber grabbed $89 from the till, holding the clerks and customers at bay with a gun, Saturday night, Jan. 15th. The minute the bandit left, Robinson called police, and a radio flash was sent to all patrol cars. One of the cars stopped a man who was walking fast, a few blocks from the store. Returning him to the store, Robinson and other clerks immediately identified him as the bandit. Well, Everett, that's what you get for being way out there in South Dakota. 110 Head of LIVESTOCK At Combination Sale at the Tom Ferguson farm 6 miles south of Swea City. Lunch wagon on ground.
