IP five years, tremendous sums of public money ieen expended on relief projects, In an effort _ unemployment and bridge the gap between •e depression and what we hoped would be a of prosperous times. ._lng that time, public roads, public buildings, indreds of projects of all kinds have been start- .jpleted or abandoned. Some were worthwhile; were foolish expenditures of public money, ring the last two weeks, the world has been to a new era In International policies. Since orld War, nations have been kidding them- Into the belief that reason and logic would B armed force as a means of settling national ».ternational disputes. Now we know that force force alone—armed might—will hold the key ie future for the next 25 or 50 years. such Is the case, would not the United States better off to acknowledge what has taken place ,.j world in the past two weeks. If we havo Ions of men out of work, or who have to be sup- ed on public funds, why continue this hypocrlt- spending of money on things that either are not and not wanted, or are created solely for the « of giving men work? United States has never been a military- led nation, comparatively speaking, .t the time is now ripe-yes, it Is more than ripe, imperative—this nation must immediately begin lopt a practical attitude toward world affairs, too, must exhibit armed might If we hope to our "place In the sun." It's the order of the » If that is the way other nations want to play **ame, the United States would be foolish not to "" Itself abreast or ahead of the times, ^et our national policy of WPA, PWA, CCC, other similar agencies be dropped and dlscon- td.

Drives Out Industries Humboldt Ind.: The Nash-Kelvinator Co. Is moving Its motor plants from Wisconsin. It is only one of the many industries that made Wisconsin their homes and were forced to move elsewhere to maintain their lives. The Nash people are moving because the state failed to protect them when they were as- salld by the C. t O^motor strike. The Nash people were given no protection such as the constitution provides for every firm or individual. In short the state was on the side of the C. I. O. even to what is undoubtedly very unfair methods. And so the Nash people are moving out. "A Good Time Was Had by All" Northwood Anchor: According to a Washington news flash of recent date Secretary and Mrs. Henry A. Wallace and Mr. and Mrs. John L. Lewis had dinner together. And the Creston News-Advertiser says: "That's natural. Nothing Wrong with that. Both men are interested In production. No doubt Wallace talked about raising corn, and Lewis discussed raising hell, and a good time was had by all. Hitler and Lakota Webster City Journal: The report that Hitler has given the people of Lakota, up in Kossuth county, ten days In which to change the town's name back to Germania or "else", lacks confirmation. »„* * Wallace Knows He Has Failed Anamosa Eureka: As yet the public generally Is not aware of the failure of the farm program. But the department of agriculture, headed by Henry Wallace, is aware of It and it may be said is silently suffering no little pain as a result of the knowledge. This Is Indicated by the feverish attempt of Mr. Wallace to buy up surplus crops and distribute to families that are already being taken care of by the relief organizations. Of course, Mr. Roosevelt knows the facts. As a matter of fact the figures themselves tell the story. The price of farm products generally are today lower than they were before the act went Into effect The Index price for all grain crops today is 77 while In 1933 it was 78, when Mr. Roosevelt first proclaimed his purpose to raise farm prices by legislation. The government has a hundred million pounds of butter in storage. The result is that there Is no demand for butter for everybody Is afraid to buy other than from hand to mouth as they do not know what the government Is going to do with this storage butter. They may throw It on the market at any time and wherever it goes It will affect the price. If It is dumped abroad It will affect the foreign market, if it is given to the needy it takes that market away and if It is held In storage it is a big black cloud hanging over the market. The same applies t» corn. The sealed corn really belongs to the government and with hundreds of millions of bushels .sealed what is the government going to do with It. In the long run demand and supply will determine the price. We were taught this in high school fifty years ago. The Brain Trust will find out that they can not change the laws of economics any more than they can change the laws of nature. 86 Persons on County WPA Projects; $48,644 Spent in Kossuth Co. to Date 28 Are Working on Roads; $11,081 Expended on Sewing Project; Call Park Also Developed Etghty-two persons are employed at the present time on six Works Progress Administration projects In Kossuth county, according to a special report prepared for the Algona Upper Des Moines, by George J.
