4-A!0ono (la.) Upper Dei Meinet Tuesday, Oefeber 23, 1956 The great American political race has entered on the home stretch. The candidates are getting in their last few wallops in their final speeches, the pollsters arc making their predictions and the clerks and judges at the poJls are planning their affairs so that they can work all election day and far, far into the night. 'jhL 1 year ot the prcsidental campaign is hectic and extremely exciting. « * * Cniy an illiterate, deaf, dumb and blind person, it seems to me, could avoid getting himself involved in politics this year. And this is a .good thing. If there is a iignt vote in our country it wil ba a sign to the rest of the world that we don't care very much how our government is run and that we might be ripe for drastic changes from others. And the common good is sure not to have any place at all in their plans. ;«'#•,» No party is perfect. So tho thing •is to join a party that most n$ar- ly matches your v £deals and then work to make the party better This, for most of us at this stagt of the campaign, consists of such mundane things as envelope lick- Ing and doorbell ringing. The point at which we really shoxild have started was when the parties were having their caucuses selecting candidates and then getting out to vote in the too often neg lected election, the Primaries. * * *.. Here in Iowa, on the radio, TV and in the daily newspapers somebody fs always telling us to register so that we can vote in the election. This has confused lots of people and many have asked where they can register. I know it has been said before, but it will do no harm to say it again. You have to register only in towns where the population is over 6000. You do not have to register in Algona. Also, you may vote in the fall election even if you did not vote in the Primaries. * * » At this stage in the political campaign it is probably too late to do much arguing. Most people have already decided, and r jig impassioned spiel won't get mybody to change hi.s mind. But it will get somebody mad at yen; .md they might stay mad Ions after November 6. If we could manage to talk the Democratic party only with Democrats, the Republican party- only with Republicans we'd save .lurselves lots of high blood pressure. Personally, I find this difficult. Right now, when I go out, Cm apt to classify people, not as Mrs Jones, who makes flower Arrangements, and Mrs Brown, who has always been so nice to me but as Mrs Jones, my fellow Democrat anil Mrs Brown, that Reoublican. * * * Politics creates strange altitudes in adults and it is also not without its effect on the children. Even one tiniest of them keep their ears open and what they hear often confuses them. For instance, one little boy I know has always been extremely fond of his teachers. His parents are quite ardent political supporters One day he came home from school all worried. "I think my teacher is a Republican. She knows I'm a Democrat. Do you think I should change teachers? That boy is a second grader! * * • We get it at our house, too. It THESE WOMEN! By d'AIessfo SUBSTITUTIONS "h it all right if I ask you to substitute this cool cup of coffee for a hot one?"

One of our kids'was talk- i when the election is past ;mU ali ing with a little girl who was wearing an, "I Like Ike", button. "You shouldn't like him'', our little pricle-and-joy said, "He's a real mean nvm." It was time for me to step in and do a hult correcting so I explained that General Eisenhower is a really fine man and regardless of his poor performance at his job, as President of our country we should respect him. (You see, there is nothing prejudiced aboi't me.) But the word, General stuck in the kid's mind. "Generais an in wars. If he gets in are we going to have a war, Mama?" Oi course, that was a ridiculous question, but is it any more ridiculous than some of the supposedly learned adults' statements to the effect that because the Democrats were in power during them? the controversial done the war, they started doesn't make us feel any better I In spite of finding the current NOTICE! The adult education planning committee has proposed the following courses for the 1956-57 adult evening classes: Aeronautics - Bookkeeping - Household Science - French - Ceramics - Book Club - Public Education - Religion - Oil Painting - Arts & Crafts - Indus- trial Art (Woodworking) - Beginning Typing - Law for the Layman - Upholstery - Advanced Sewing - Beginning Sewing - Advanced Photography - Be- ginning Photography - Beginning Bridge - Caning Chairs - Currerit Problems-Bride's Class-Recrea- tional Games.

Early registration is necessary to determine courses instructors are needed to teach. In the event your first choice does not meet the required enrollment minimum of ten (10), we will include your name on the alternate course indicated by you.

I have no predictions concerning the outcome, excepting that I think it will be close anc. that every precinct will have to throw out a few ballots because they arc marked with a check instead of the only correct marking, an X. In spite of all the warnings in the papers, and the really wonderful jou the Voter's Service committee of the League of Women Voters clous, a few of these turn up. And 1 know it the Democrats do not win, I'll really be in the soup. Not only will I have to live with a Republican - depleted income, I'll also have a lot of explaining lu do to our youngsters. * * * Louella Malueg teaches a class of the very tiniest youngsters ai the Presbyterian Sunday School. She meets a lot of children who are on the trial run of their religious education and she's very good at dealing with them. Last Sunday there was a new little boy sitting on one of the small red chairs when Mrs Malueg greeted her class. He was very shy and he wouldn't tell her his name. But since he had Doug imprinted on his cap, she very gently tried to ease him into the proceedngs wth these words, "Doug, would you like to help color our Bible pictures?" No response. Later, tit? teacher asked, "Doug, would you like to join us in the songs?" No response. "Doug, can you tell me your other name?" Still no response. Finally toward the end of the session, Mrs Lee Schenck rushed in, practically frantic with worry. "My little boy is lost. His name is Doug. Have you seen hm?" Doug uttered his first word of the hour, "Mama!" He'd gone exploring, thought the place looked interesting, so he parked his little red trike outside and had gone into Sunday School. * * * There was a fine letter this week from Mrs Gladys Barker of Cedar Rapids. In the past, she's always been one of my most faithful correspondents, but not having heard from her for a while, I was wondering what had become of her. She's been ill with a kidney infection lately but as Grandma to many she's still doing her share of baby sitting. She was up in Minnesota for 6 weeks this summer caring for her daughter's 10 youngsters while their mother had an operation and she's due to stay with another daughter's 5 when number 6 makes it's advent. * * * ' This week's recipe is for Pineapple Nut Bread.
