4-Algona (la.) Upper Des Molnw thurtdoy, April 11, 1966 MAYBE MORE BANDS It is mighty refreshing to read stories from Russia regarding the visit there of the University of Iowa band, and its fine reception wherever it has presented a performance. At last stop, Kharkov, in the Ukraine, the band's two performances were enthusiastic sellouts. Maybe the answer is more bands - and fewer bombs. JACKIE'S BULL FIGHT The Sunday Register, April 23, page one of the general news section, carried a story regarding the visit of Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy to a bull fight in Spain, and some statewide protests that had been lodged against her reported statement that she found it "wonderful and exciting." Bull fights, of course, can be pretty gory with the bull usually getting the worst of it. But we imagine Jackie referred to the spectacle that consumes most of the time, leading up the final demise of the bull. However, we turned from page one to page two, and there was a four column picture of a poor steer down in Florida, one of 20 head of cattle that escaped from a packing plant corral and ran loose around a Hialeah suburb. The steer was sitting down, and two policemen with rifles were getting ready to kill the animal, as they did the other 19 in the same manner. It occurred to us that the 20 head of cattle didn't have a chance; in the case of a bull, if he happens to mow down the toreador, he forever after can live in peace and contentment with a flock of cows. At least he has a better chance than did the 20 head of cattle. CAN WE CHANGE IT? The U.S. ambassador to South Viet Nam, Henry Cabot Lodge, had some interesting comments regarding elections as they are conducted in Southeast Asia and we presume in Viet Nam in particular. He said "the elections will depend on how well the elections are conducted. But it, as so often happens in Southeast Asia, there is as- sasination, kidnaping, torture, maiming and intimidation, and if the count is not honest, then of course it won't be a success." And that is the type of election likely to take place. It's a way of life in that section of the world. Can we change it? An admirer came up to a senatorial candidate after his speech and said, "Congratulations. That was a fine speech. I like the straight-forward way you dodged those issues." -The New London Journal Upper 19ce HIE.

WALLER, Editor & Publisher DON SMITH, News Editor ADVERTISING Russ Kelley Denny Waller JACK PURCELL, Foreman NATIONAL NEWSPAPER : 6 TI 6 N NATIONAL REPRESENTATIVE American Newspaper Representatives, Inc. 404 Fifth Ave., New York 18, N.Y. A THOUGHT TO CONSIDER It did not appear that much new was presented in points of view at the recent hearing in Des Moines pertaining to a piece of proposed legislation that is aimed against the feeding of livestock by processors. There might have been one new thought, which came from a Dallas Center dairy farmer, Robert Ellis. He spoke against the legislation and said: "The bill would deal a lethal blow to processing and marketing cooperatives. If it would prevent food processors from operating feeding operations, it would also prevent feeders and farmers from being in the processing business." Concern of livestock feeders about large- scale feeding is understandable. But the potentialities of such a law go far beyond this one phase of operation. Federal legislation in this one matter could open the door to federal legislation into every form of processing endeavor that exists, and into every form of co-operative enterprise, in which any type of processing takes place. And there are those who feel that perhaps the government is in too many fields already where it does not belong and is not needed, SENATOR IN HOT WATER A curious case in which Senator Thomas J. Dodd (D-Conn.) is involved with a registered public relations representative from Germany, one Gen. Julius Klein, has brought a series of charges and counter-charges, with Drew Pearson and his aide, Jack Anderson, in the middle. The nationally syndicated columnist, whose columns from Washington appear in this newspaper, published letters from Klein to Dodd in which the West German gave the Senator detailed instructions on how Dodd should handle high German officials. Now, it seems, the Senator says the letters were stolen from his files, and in the process accused the columnists of doing it. The Senator even got the FBI into the act to investigate how the letters turned up in Pearson's possession, to let the cat out of the bag. Pearson says he realizes that publication of the material would be unpleasant for the Senator, but that in such goings on, the public has a right to know. The letters, it seems, were supplied by someone with an ax to grind who had access in previous employment to the Senator's files. Newspapers would have a pretty hard time uncovering hanky-panky in public office without the 'help of the inside lead. But a Senator is pretty high on the totem pole, and when in hot water has access to the FBI and senate committees in defense, which the average person does not have. If Senator Dodd is indeed acting as a sub- rosa agent for a West German public relations setup, then Columnists Pearson .and Anderson are again doing their readers and the general public a real service in their disclosures. TROUBLE IN SWEDEN Insider's Newsletter - IT'S NOW official. Television is the third leading cause of broken marriages in Sweden, according to a government report. It seems that Swedish husbands customarily demand absolute silence while they watch TV—which most of them do every evening. The divorcing wives also complained that their husbands were falling asleep in front of the set and spending the night on the sofa instead of in the martital bed. The happiest people are not necessarily those who receive the largest salaries or the most public acclaim. A feeling of wholesome and enviable well-being is to be found among millions of plain peope who are giving to their daily tasks their best effort, and are meeting their obligations to their families and their neighborhoods sauarely and honestly. —The Madrid Register-News SUBSCRIPTION RATES IN TRADE AREA One Year, in advance.

I think she loves me but is afraid to admit it because of her mother. Her mother doesn't want me to go with her daughter. She does not like me. Could you tell me how I can get her mother to trust me with her daughter' I would like to ask her hand in marriage." OUR REPLY: If you get along with this girl well, she should be able to express her true feelings. If she dates you against her mother's wishes, it would seem that she would not be afraid to express herself. You cannot win her mother's confidence until you establish the reason that she does not trust you. If there is something you have done or said in the past, then you must set things right. Her mother, perhaps, may not object to you as an individual. She may not want her daughter going steady wtih anyone and she may be definitely opposed to the idea of marriage. If her daughter is in her teens, this is probably the case. In any event, find out why you have a problem and maybe you can then do something about it. from HKJORY'S SCRAPBOOK DATES AND EVENTS FROM YESTERYEARS The first locomotive using electric power, invented by Prof. Charles G.

FROM THE FILES OF THE UPPER DES MOINES April 24, 1956 - o With 99% of the oats seeding completed in Kossuth county area, farmers were exhibitng some anxiety about the scarcity of moisture.

She'll usually ttll you how terrible it will be. And kf*p on telling you until the next lunar eclipse. A r*tlrvd man who is living the food lift in a small town in southern California thinks all this is so much nonsense. He and his wife have an income of $260 a month. They're saving about $30 a month out of it. This is their budget: All Food $65 All Utilities 19 Gasoline. Oil. etc 25 Clothes 10 Christmas Fund 10 Drugs 6 Haircuts, Shoe Repairs 4 Household Costs 10 Vacations 20 Hospital Insurance and Taxes 41 Husband's Spending .. 20 Wife's Spending 10 TOTAL $240 This couple lives in a mobile home, parked on a lot they own. They pay a mobile home license and property tax on the lot and its improvements. According to the husband, "the budget item for Clothes includes such things as dry-cleaning. AH Food means just what it says— if we eat out the cost comes out of this item. The Household item includes newspapers, soap, etc., and Drugs, while not including everything bought in a drugstore, would cover such a thing as a hot-water bottle. "The Christmas Fund goes to my wife—it's her Christmas present. The personal spending fund for each of us must cover dues for any lodge, association, etc., religion^ donations, and small personal items we buy . . ." The key to a good life on a small income, this couple insists, is a budget. "You simply must live on a budget. You have to figure it out carefully, and you must live within it." They have lived in six different locations since they retired and say it is not important which state you live in if you have to cut costs— "It's the area or neighborhood within a state that matters."
