TOUR CREDIT IS A SACRED TRUST It Is too bad that more people did not hear a recent speaker at a local gathering discuss the question of credit. It might have opened the eyes cf many. Ten years ago, opening charge accounts was the easiest thing in the world to do, as some merchants today know to their sorrow. The principle of credit is perfectly sound; only trouble is that it is abused much too frequently. Credit bureaus are being organized on an ever- Increasing scale, to do two things (1) prevent merchants from giving credit to those who take alt they can get on credit but seldom pay in full, and (2) provide adequate records so that credit may be given to families who treat their credit in the proper fash- Ion. It has been claimed in the past few years thai there is a growing tendency on the part of some tj deliberately overlook legitimately-owed bills, and to feel that purchase of an item on credit means that the bill can be paid any old time. Such abuse of credit is working a hardship on business firms, who in turn clamp down harder on all credit business, thus making it difficult for those who are honest and deserve credit to get it. A good credit record is something to be proud of, just as much so as a county fair blue ribbon, or the best corn, or a 4-H award. Parents can start their youngsters out right. If they will instill in them a desire to build up an honorable credit rating. Credit is a sacred trust; keep yours where it belongs. • THE COUNTRY IS SAFE The country is safe! Senator Smith of South Carolina has defeated a New Deal candidate, and in California an advocate of a "$30 every Thursday to everybody over BO" has defeated Senator McAdoo, another New Dealer. The South Carolina outcome is no surprise. Senator Smith had the post position, and was well intrenched. His opponent was a comparative youngster in politics. In California, the outcome may be such that many anti-New Dealers will wish they had voted for McAdoo. After all, this $30 every Thursday business is going far beyond any plan the anti-administration forces have criticized. In fact in a few years time the New Deal's plans may look pretty tame compared with some that seem to be cropping up. And in the meantime, there is no very great voting evidence that the public intends to return to "the good old days" of "everything-is-swell" government. Yes. indeed, the New Deal may soon be the conservative man's party. And, of course, for the present, the country is safe. ASKS MORE HOSPITAL SPACE This newspaper recently received a letter from a well known Kossuth county woman, in which she sincerely asked why a project to obtain more adequate hospital facilities should not be a prime object of this community in the near future. The woman needed hospital attention, but could not get in a local hospital, as all rooms were taken. Our point is not one of criticism of the present hospitals in Algona, but merely to pass on the thought behind this lady's plea. Perhaps we DO need more hospital space. And if so, we would welcome any additional comments or thoughts on the subject and we also pledge this newspaper to support any reasonable movement to bring about this improvement. At present, the woman is in a hospital many miles from here. We hope that folks closely connected with thi.s aid to human illnesses will consider the possibilities of expansion of our present hospital setup. Opinions of Other Editors Tin- Public Interest Sac Sun: l^ihor'.i .N'on-r'artisau League, co.'i- Jroiied by John L. Ltu'ix lias vigorously critici.sud Governor Knist-hel's reopening of th-.- Maytag plant under the protection of the militia, charging that buch action is "against the public interest." All of which is rather amusing in what tome people consider the "public interest." If the L/cwio outfit were to accuse the Governor of acting against the interest 'of the C. I. O. that would he a different matter. But tu say that the public has been harmed because the Maytag employees have gone back to work is a bit ridiculous. • • • Tilt- I'our Taxpayer* Eagle Gruve Eagle: The bill for the "long count' audit ai Algona contains one ridirulou.^ Hem a credit to the city of 2.0.j for stamps! But the total of the bill was .>1.0*i(i, and nothing wrong found of a mutt-rial naturi. And Slate Auditor .Storms brazenly defends this waste of the tax payer's money for these long count audits. He will permit city clerks to do things which lie. Storms, himself admits ale not in compliance with the law, but he will not write a letter to thesi; clerks informing thc-rn of the fact that they are not observing the- law. He will not write a letter to a city clerk as a protection to the clerk against the orders of the next auditor who comes along. Impeachment is the only recourse tile taxpayers have when a public official willfully performs as does Mr. Storms and by thi.s we mean impeachment at the polls next November. (The legislature does not meet until in January). The people have a chance to vote their disapproval in the coming election. Mr. Storm's opponent, Fred Akers of Ottumwa. has the recommendation of his American Legion colleagues and those who know him vouch for him. A vote for Fred Akers is a vote against the "long count audits." If we must take care of the^u officious and incompetent checks, then we should place them on direct relief, and save the $6 to $8 per Jay and "keep", they are now costing us. AH Will Soon B« on Relief EsthervlHe News: President Roosevelt haa spok- «n often of the ill-housed, Ill-clad, under-nourished one third of the nation's population. And figures reveal that no less than a third of the people are receiving aid from the government treasury. Uncle Sam is Issuing checks to 13,333,896 individuals, representing 43,000,000 people, counting dependents, and this number is expected to reach an all time high of 45,000,000 by November. There are 3,038,908 re- liefers on the rolls. The President's figures on the one-third who do not have their just share of this life's necessities may not be far wrong. At least it is justified by hli spending agencies, which have succeeded In getting almost a majority of the people on the government's pay rolls. The statistics are conservative, not Including dependents in several classifications of those enjoying federal checks. Is It a scheme or a result? In cither case the figures are startling and give no unimportant clue as to the why of national politics. * * » How to Pay for Exchange* Livermore Gazette: The Humboldt county editors and families all met and enjoyed their picnic at Renwick Sunday. There were a lot of big problems confronting the newspaper men. but with their combined brains they solved them all. For instance, the government says we may no longer exchange newspapers but must pay one another in rash. That was easy. While sitting in a circle on the grass consuming sandwiches, all that was necessary was to start two dollars around the ring, and when it came back to the original owner the deed was done. It was a little hard to find the first editor with the necessary two dollars, and there was some danger of it get- tinr lost enroute. But by tearing the bill In two and retaining half, the other half was rendered valueless outside that circle, and its safe return was thus p«snr«»d. We only cite this as an instance of ho«v easy it is for newspaper men to solve great problems and why they are so indispensible to Uncle Sam in time of troub'e. If you ha\-e any big problems bothering you. bring them to your editor, with the same confidence that you would consult your doctor for your tummyache. • • • III Timed Demands Mason City Globe-Gazette: Over at Kenosha, Wis.. represntatives of the Workers' Alliance are demanding 30 per cent more pay for WPA workers, free transportation to and from their jobs, and free medical service. They are asking for a minimum pay of $65 a month for each WPA worker who has a wife to support and an additional $7 for each other dependent in a family whose head is employed on WPA work. The officials of the Workers' Alliance have presented their ultimatum to the Kenosha county board. They do not say what the result will be if their demands are not granted, but declare that if the Kenosha county supervisors turn them down that their demands will be carried to the steps of the statehouse. It seems to be beyond the ken of WPA workers that employment is being created for them for the purpose of giving them a living, and that they would be without remuneration of any kind if their income from the public work was shut off. The WPA workers are from an unfortunate class that cannot, under present conditions, be absorbed in private industry. The workers in private industry are having to bear the cost of the governmental pay afforded WPA workers. Demands for higher pay for WPA workers are really a request to the public for more money. They do not indicate a large amount of gratitude on the part of WPA employees for the efforts being made in their behalf. The MAR.CH OF TIME •MI. o. ant. or*.

First Mar. cella Thill, whose parents live near Whittemore, wins the trip as March of Progress Queen, and Laurena Laabs (now Volgt), wins $50 as runner-up. And then, Marcella Cullen of Whittemore is runner-up for Miss Democrat, so there you are. P. S. Of course Laurena is from Lone Rock-Lotts Creek territory, but that's close enough to Whittemore, Isn't it.

Investigations into the baking of prisoners in Philadelphia, the C'ity of Brotherly Love, will continue. Bakers will be called in to prove tiley were done to a turn. The jailers will probably get jobs putting on barbecues. Secretary Hull will write a note to Japan and teat her won't seem to care: neither will Japan. Hitler and Mussolini will practice taking pokes at enemie.3. while avowing a desire for peace. The .stars for the month are bruised from early football practice. Republicans will worry this month over their platform, although they don't have anybody to stand on it. The earth's orbit will not conform to certain theories of politicians, and will be accused of Communism. Theme song of the month is "The Brown September Ail." • » • Famous Lu*t Line—Who'» checking up uu the checkers checkers? HIDEAWAY— HYDE PARK, New York: Presl dent Roosevelt last week took aev eral guests, Including newspaperese and New York City's Mayor La Guardla, to see how his "dream house" near Hyde Park Is coming along. The field-stone walls wer all up, the roof was going on. St cret Service men looked skeptica when the President declared tha in his new hideaway there would be no telephone, no radio, no guards except an electric eye to fire a gun If any Intruder came too close. RED STARS?— WASHINGTON: The House Com mittee on Un-American Activities headed by Texas' Representative Martin Dies last week examinee Joseph B. Matthews, one-time hea'J of the League Against War and Fascism (now League for Peace and Democracy). From his testimony the committee learned that "the Communist Party relies heavily upon the carelessness or Indifference of thousands of prominent citizens In lending their names for its propaganda purposes. For example,.the French newspaper "Ce Solr", which is owned outright by the Communist Party, recently featured hearty greetings from Clark Gable. Robert Taylor, James Cagney and even Shirley Temple." Soon afterward the committee, its work in Washington finished, announced that it would use up what remains of its $25,000 appropriation traveling. One stop, announced Chairman Dies, would be Hollywood. ELEPHANT FEAST- SOUTH BEND. Indiana: John Coolidge, 32-year-old son of the 30th president, returned to his home in Orange. Conn., one day last week to find that his colleagues on the Orange Town Committee had delegated him to attend the Republican State convention. Said John Coolidge: "I'll be glad to do whatever than an artistic, well-preserved mail receptacle." Raymond H. Combs, of Church ville, N. Y. ( president of the R. F D. Carriers Association, made ar even more professional Speech. Sale he: "We're the only ones In the org •animation that provide complete postal service. They count on us for . . . their stamps .. . give us their packages . . . send money orders through us." In fact, he said the smiling servants of the R. F. D. ought to be called, not "letter carriers" but "post offices on wheels." NEW BLUESWASHINGTON: The War Department last week announced the first major change in army dress since the "O. D." (olive drab) was introduced during the Spanish-American War—a new slate blue uniform, loose cut, with canvas leggings nstead of rolled puttees, with shirts open at the neck Instead of a close collar and necktie. Reasons for the change: comfort, lower visibility, and economy. The present olive drab army mat- irlal must be woven from fibres of leven different colors, few mills are I can—locally—to keep the Republican party alive." Meanwhile, to a hayfield ;n low er Indiana, dotted with 29 blue and white striped tents, last week went 70.000 clams. 4.250 milk-fed chickens. 900 watermelons, three truckloads of roasting corn. 60 chefs. 36 bands, 8.200 personally invited Republicans from twelve states and 11,000 uninvited Republicans. Formal purpose of the occasion was to launch the Republican congressional campaign of 1938. The host, who laid out $30,000 for the party, was buoyant Homer E. Capehart. vice president and sales director of Rudolph Wurlitzer Co. Of this expensive clambake he said: "I can't afford it. but we can't beat those Democrats with firecrackers . . . The New Deal . . . will fall of its own weight, but we must get in and pitch today and kill it before it kills us." In the big main tent, when the eating was over, the orthodox Republican audience heard orthodox Republican speeches by New York's Representative James W. Wadsworth and National Chairman John D. M. Hamilton. Excerpts: Mr. Wadaworth: "Wherever we turn, we are confronted with federal money, billions of It It is used brazenly in tempting the states and their subordinate municipalities into acquiescence. To put It boldly, much of this tempting should be called bribery—the bribery of an unsuspecting people into acquiescence." Mr. Hamilton: "In less than four years Congress has appropriated for WPA use alone the gigantic sum of $6.000,000.000. Well, if this money has not been spent to relieve genuine distress, how was it spent? . . . What has Mr. Roosevelt, who likes to talk so much about morality in government and politics to say to this picture of jobless, hungry people eating out of garbage cans while his henchman, in his name, use relief funds to buy their way back into office ?" PICKETING PRICE— RIDGEWOOD, New Jersey: Tired of seeing pickets of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters and Butcher Workmen's Union (A. F. of L.) trudging up and down with angry strike signs residential Ridgewood's Mayor Frank D. Livermore last week proposed to his borough commission a new idea for restricting picketing— an ordinance imposing a $50 weekly license fee on anyone who wants to carry a sign on Ridgewood's streets. Penalties: $200 fine or !>0 days in jail or both. His argument: while a man's civil liberties give liirn the right to walk the streets .--ml express himself, the privilege to carry .signs is taxable. able to supply it. and large batches often have to be rejected by in- pctors as off color. But slate blue equires only one color blue fibre nd one white, can be manufactured y most textile mills, is cheaper and more easily procurable. The army 'opes that the cheaper slate blues rill save enough money so that ev- ntually soldiers can be provided with braided navy blue dress uniforms as well. Still on a strictly experimental basis, the new blues will be introduced in each of the nine corps areas as replacement needs arise, and after a year's trial will be adopted or rejected. "BY MISTAKE"— HONG KONG. China: Pilot Hugh L. Woods of McCracken. Kansas, last week raised a big Douglas transport plane off the airfield at Hong Kong. He had 13 Chinese passengers, including two women, a young child and a baby. Half-hour later, eleven Japanese planes droned behind him and Pilot Woods ducked into a cloud. When he reached the end of it, five Japanese planes were on his tail, power-diving at the Douglas to force it down. Pilot Woods landed in a river, but the Japanese dived again and again, spraying the downed plane with machine-gun bullets. When the transport's crew and passengers went overboard into the river, the Japanese planes continued the work of extermination. Pilot Woods was carried away by a swift current and reached shore in safety. Radio Op- rator Joe Loh and a passenger with a bullet in his neck also escaped. Two days later, Chinese extricated three bullet-riddled bodies from the transport, sunk in 40 feet of water. The reason for the attack was soon deduced. Dr. Sun Fo. son of the late great Chinese Revolutionist Sun Yat-sen, had recently visited Russia and toured European capitals seeking aid for the Chinese Government Arriving In Honk Kong, he and his party booked passage with China Aviation Corp., from Hong Kong to Chunking, China's temporary capital. Japanese spies evidently informed the Japanese Air Force that an easy job of assassination could be carried out: but Dr. Sun did not fly in Pilot Woods' plane. Instead he shifted his reservation to Eurasia Aviation Corp., flew in safety to Hankow. The Japanese at once announced that Pilot Woods' plane had been shot down "by mistake." 66 PBR ClBNT—• «... NEW YORK: Manhattan Colum- Ist Haywood Broun last week wrote: "The United States Chamber of Commerce might well profit by a little lecture from Miss Carole Lombard." Miss Lombard's little lee ture: "I gave the federal government 65 per cent of my wages last year, and I was glad to do it, too . Income tax money all goes Into Improvement and protection of the country ... I really think I got my money's worth." INDIGNANT— COQUILLE. Oregon: Walter Smith of Coquille was in court last week on his 43rd charge of drunkenness. Judge Frank Leslie gave him the choice of pouring 20 quarts of confiscated whiskey down the sink or going to jail for 30 days. Indignant, Walter Smith went to jail.

ELECTRIC FENCER •SEPT. 12-17, 1938J "Don't forget the babies" requests ostmaster Wade Sullivan. Algona people. It seems, when making out lips for the post office's new dlrec- ory never seem to think that child- en and even babies in homes get mall occasionally. Hence Postmaster Sullivan wishes to ask that Al gonlans be sure to fill in the names of all persons living at a residence who get their mail there—babies included. When children get mail the problem of delivery Is additionally difficult since the mailmen, wide acquaintance with Algona though they have, can not be expected to remember quite everyone's Jimmy or Johnny. The local officials also ask that people who have not yet turned in their slips for the directory do so immediately. Virtually all rural patrons have turned in the necessary information but the city of Algona is lagging behind only about 65 per cent of complied. city residents having PREPAREDNESS— ZURICH, Switzerland: Hearings before the National Defense committee (is to how Switzerland can lest defend herself brought to light ast wi;ek striking facts and proposals: Zurich already has a four-story subterranean retreat into which officials ran dive at a moment's notice.
