Upper ttti MolrtM Tu*4dny, November 13, 1956 PERSONAL ATTACKS NOT NECESSARY ' Tuesday morning of last week the county Republican chairman took to the air in a vigorous denunciation of this newspdper, among other things, for publishing its regular weekly edition Mprtday afternoon and for planning an WHdt the chairman does not know is that •three weeks before the election, after checking with the postoffiee department, the decision to publish Monday and to produce the "extra" was mcfde. We did not know that it was also necessary to get clearance from the Republican county How Kossuth County Voted * Th£ statement was also made over the air •that. this newspaper had billed Kossuth countv Jor $200 more .for ih? same amount of legal •publications for the year thur the other two official county papers. •' The Upper Des Moines, to its knowledge, n6s never deliberately overcharged Kossuth county for anything — or anyone else. If the Bounty Republican chairman or anyone else can 'Substantiate that claim we invite them to do so. ,All that is necessary Is to compare the various bills for the same material published. ,1 It seems 1 cf little out of character to find an btherwise dignified individual engaged in the task of attacking the integrity of individuals and business firms, even in the, heat of a political rramp'fiign, * • '* A DEMOCRATIC ^' For the first Hme :!r>ce 1936, Iowa elected !b Democratic governor last week in the person "Of Herschel Loveless of OHwmwa.

It will provide considerable material for discussion, however, in the w6eks to cdme. The President won 0 persona! smashing victory. It signified probably 6s much ds anything that the American people felt in a fime of world crisis that the ex-general was the proper national leader. It indicated that the great majority felt that his first term was satisfactory, and that his leadership was superior fo that of his Democratic opponent. But Ike's victory was striefly personal. , It did not carry with it a complete vote or confidence in the Republican party. Despite the Eisenhower landslide, Congress will be bemocratic in both the Senate and House. In,Oregon, for example, where one of the greatest efforts in history to unseat d Democrat was ma ( de by Republican forces, Wayne Morse was reelected. His opponent, Douglas McKay, had the president's blessing. In Minnesota, whe." a a high Administration official, Ancher Nelsen, resigned his post to enter the field for the' Republicans, ih«> vote went to Orville Freeman, the Democratic incumbent. ' Even in Iowa, where Ike's margin wds Over 200,000, voters elected a De.viocratic governor, one Democratic congressman (subject to a recount), and doubled the number of Democrats in the state legislature. The Democratic . party made , progress everywhere, with the exception' of the -presidency. For Adlai Stevenson, it means the end of the line politically. He gave his effort everything he had, but he was pitted against the most popular figure on the political scene since Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and the outbreak of se'rious trouble in Suez, and revolts in Europe one week before the election sank whatever chance he might have had. The Democratic party indicated that it had gained in vitality during the past four years, and also gained in popular support below the presidential level. The Republican party will not have Eisenhower heading the ticket again, and the maneuvering within its ranks will now begin in preparation for 1960. And many a Republican leader knows that the party will face is rough road in finding a substitute for Ike, who rybrse is responsible for whatever success the GO*, hwd in 1952 and 1956.

Then the smoke will clear and the people of the United States will join hands and go forward under the duly elected leaders of national, state and county governments. The Anamosa Journal has a record of being traditionally Democratic over nearly ail of its 85-year-old history. Democratic editorials during the 1956 campaign in The Jo'urnal have been written by news editors Pat Wolfe and Jim Rutter, bolh registered rriontbt-rA of the parly. The Eutok,-., L-itaahjhiy Re-publican over ils 100-year hi..v?;;;y, has espou.s>->5 the GOP party principles ur;d candida^s. Editi,-.- Tom Powell has written t!u Republic./ editorials, , ' Editor Powell i.. or has miaiad voting in a Republican primary since becoming eligible to vote on his 21st birthday. Democratic system of government in the United Slates requires two stiy.-^ major parties to maintain its effectiveness. Urcka and Journal owners believe thai with nearly a 20,000 population in Jones county, there should be at least one newspaper in Jones county championing the line of political thought ol the Republican and Democratic parlies and their respective candidates. Neither party has a monopoly on "good candidates" or all the "good ideas." Both issues and candidales need to be publicly aired on the anvil of public opinion. Newspaper editorials arc one good place to challenge people to consider aivl weigh the advanlages of the parties and their candidates. * * * IT ISN'T CHARITY (Grundy Center Register) "The only way we can keep our livestock prices up to purity is to accept a subsidy from the government and a subsidy it too much like charity and I don't like it," one of our farmer friends told us. This same farmer said that he had received a soil bank check and was glad to take it. He regards a government check that would pay the difference between what he- had to take for his hogs when he- sold them and the parity price, or the fair price, as charity. The furmur has in mind what is good for his party and disregards what is good for him. If government subsidy is charity big business should blush from shame for demanding it and taking it. Big business the past fifteen years has received $100 in government subsidies when the farmers received but $1. And big business income lias been going up and farm income lias been going down and down. If farmers could join their demands for government subsidies as big business does, they would get their fair share. As long as fanners look upon aid from their government as charity, they should not get, nor should they expect to get. the help from their government to which they are entitled. * * * Well, at least the hotel men in Milwaukee who were worrying about how they couldn't take care 1 ,.f .(ii 11,, n .'.',.,;,i ;.

The members of the organization were driven to a spot two fftileS frcm town, and unsuspectingly talked into getting out of their cars. The drivers of the autos then zoomed away, but returned within a few minutes before anyone got too frantic and started a walk to town.

The county clerk reported no less than seven couples applied for marriage licenses during the week. Twelve of the 14 persons getting married were from Kos-suth county. «. * * An alleged kidnapping was reported by a Spencer auto salesman Wednesday night. The man war. forced by two men to drive from Spencer to Bancroft at gunpoint. Another car carne along after the arrival at Bancroft ajid picked up the two kidnappers. According to county authorities, no report of the incident had been filed, so the truth of the kidnapping had not been proven.' 6 * a William Wehrspann of Ollosen met with a painful accident Thursday. A bridge he was repairing caved in on him. Neighbors came to the scene and removed a cement block which had pinned him down, lie suffered a fractured let; and was taken to a Fort Dodge hospital by ambulance. * *. * John and Paul Rink and Iheh niece, Dolores Montag, all of West Bend, were injured when their auto crashed into a ditch Wednesday evening near the Lr-n Mulrciney' farm. John was the mas!, seriously injured. He received a cut on the throat and his bcalp was gashed when he went through the windshield of the r.uto. ' Paul \vas cut on the chin ;ind Dolores received a serious back injury. The auto crashed into a fence when it missed a turn. * * » The wssther continued to favor the onliio area during the week, as fall temperatures failed to drop too far en local thermometers.

It was ideal autumn weather. $ ^ >* Tho November term of district court wa<; slated to begin in Algona Wednesday.
