The German leaders have pract- icaly taken under their control, both Catholic and Protestant churches and church men, and stamped into the dust the Jews. Russia has completed a program of practically smashing the old Greek Orthodox and Catholic religions, replacing it with a homegrown creed in \vhlch young Russians are being educated. Neither nation's ruler today conforms to any of the old. established religious viewpoints. * * » IN FOUR DAYS Howard Hughes has circulated the globe. He has passed over Christian, non- Christinn, atheist and Buddhist territory. He had little time to stop. But what a nightmare of trouble, of embattled political and religious viewpoints he crossed on that trip. Fortunately, he was up in clean air. 10.000 to 12.000 feet above the earth, and the stencli of it all did not reach him. "Let the people know the truth and the country I* safe."—Abraham Lincoln. KRA8CHEL AND THE NEWTON STRIKE It happened on one of the hottest days last week Everyone would admit that all the shads possible was to be desired but when a workman < t the S & L. Store began to roll down the awning spectators were about ready to call for the wagon- FOR THERE WAS NO CANVAS ON THE AWNING— JUST THE METAL FRAMEWOFK. It turned out the heat hadn't got him after all. for when he had carefully let down the bare framework he continued to cover itwtth a new convas awning. American worklngmen, If they so choose, have a perfect right to go on strike. However, thocc who do want to work should have an equal right to their jobs. Newton, Iowa, and its woes over the Maytag plant strike have become nation-wide news. So has Governor Kraschel's handling of the situation. We do not envy the governor the "spot" he was placed in. Howeve'r, Kraschel has taken much abuse in the matter for things which he was in no way responsible for. Local officials In Newton called for the National Guard. Kraschel told them at that time that if the National Guard went to Newton, there would be martial law. and thnt the plant would remain closed until he felt it could be opened without civil warfare. Newton officials were aware of his wej] wnrm oayg lltsi „„„ „„ . view In the matter, but still wanted the Nation*! b ' crativ ' c ijDM-2 carrying a Sled around in his /-....,..,! urh<i« r,r,t thnrn »h» fnrtlnn neninst the .- Beck it turned out, was quite sober and his' winlty was certified beond question when h? explained that his firm was now filling orders for LOST AN ENGINE LOST-One diesel engine weighing many tons, frayed or stolen.

When got there, the faction against the strike wanted the National Guard used ns a forceful means of keeping the plant open. The C. I.

Each was partially right: the plant was kept shut, and then opened when Kraschel felt the situation had cooled off. winter items. Evolution of a golfer: This summer two Algona young bloods.

The flrs, REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL TIMBER It Is frequently stated that the Republican party has no presidential timber. The republican party has some good timber, but it is in the ranks of younger, more progressive men, with a more modern outlook and interpretation of affairs than is the case with the Old Guard. Charles_Taft II, son of the 27th president of the U. S., has been for several years one of the reform leaders In his native Ohio. Thomas Dewey of New York has an unequalled record in rooting out racketeering and comes from a long line of republican uncestors. Fiorello LaGuardia, naminally republican mayor of New York City, who whipped Tammany, but his views hardly coincide with Old Guard visions. There Is Governor Winant of New Hampshire, Bob LaFollette or his brother, Phil, of Wisconsin, self-styled "progressive republicans" until they decided on a party of their own and others. Of course, most of them would not have a chance. They profess views that do not coincide with what the G. O. P. believed 20 years ago. But until the G. O. P. forgets that 20 year ago angle, the party will probably have tougli sledding in national politics, unless the democrats completely sink their own ship—which elso might happen. would be wrestling here. Interested, we asked who thev were "One," Ev said, "Is the champion of worm of Iowa and the other is the thrid ranking mWdlewelBht champion of the world I gues.

In Algona alone, there are dozen s of ways that civi.- progress can be achieved. In the rural areas, every community finds its work cut out in a neat pattern of progress. The thought behind the March of I'ronn-^ celebration is a line one. There are iio clouds over Kossuth county: it is a wonderful garden ipot, richly endowed by nature. Good, sturdy Amerii -in citizens have laken advantage of this kind providence, and the result was progress in Kossuth county. Let us join hands in celebrating that progress. And yet. while we do so. may \ve keep foremost in our minds the desire to continue to keep foremost in our minds the de.sirc to continue to see progress achieved. The work I.-, not over.

So in 1ft'5, Mr. Morgenthau instituted year| round pistol practice for all armed pital, gave the baby to Dr. Inward I* Larson. Dr. L*rson put Robert nto a hot bath, massaged his heart, :rled artificial resplratldn, and final- y adrenalin to constrict the small blood vessels and send a rush of Mcessary blood to the heart In half an hour little Robert stirred, whimpered, opened his eyes. Next day he cried as lustily as ever. Little Robert's accident last week furnished additional proof that babies are tough, and that superficial signs of death do not always mean what they say. If all fathers were as quick-witted as Charles Didier and rushed their "smothered" babies to a physician, the rate of infant mortality would be lower. A baby's heart Is so shallow, so rapid, that often only an expert with a stethoscope can detect it. And In the case of shock, the beat Is Intermittent, almost Inaudible. Even blueness Is not so much a sign of approaching death as a warning of oxygen deficiency. Adults who have been struck by lightning, overcome by carbon monoxide, shocked by an electric current, or submerged under water as long as half an hour, can often be "brought to life" again. Essential treatment Is Immediate and continuous artificial respiration. This month's Issue o? the Canadian Med- lacl Association Journal cites the case of a young lineman who wns shocked by 26.000 volts, received Immediate treatment by trained fel- low-workmen, attd after *» normally.

Suddenly the ca,r jolted, the baby fell off the seat. When Mr. Didier stopped the car and picked him up, no wall or whimper came from the tightly wrapped flannel bundle;. "He's suffocated, he's dead," cried the father. , Pushing the accelerator down to the floor, he sped* to the nearest drugstore, tried artificial respiration for ten minutes. The baby began to turn blue. The druggUt shook his head. "He's dead," said he. But the agonized father would not give up hope.
