Coit*>umers says that if we haven't done so as yeil'We probably will before long its the interest in these "throw* away" garments is spreading rapidly and women are both curious and entertained by the possibility of disposable dresses, underwear, or pinafores for the whole family.

Much rcicarch hat goni into the manufacture of paper »uit- able for tho dUpoMbie dre»« idea. But this is only the beginning .of a long list of disposable items we shall see coming into the market. Miss Dana says that smart consumers will, look with open minds but cautious -mathematics at their usefulness. Have you ever thought of how we are cluttering up our pond of life with more and more legislation? Some useful, •ome^not. Have you ever thought of how much legislation we have pasied, of which wo have said this is a temporary measure and It i» still on the books long altar the need? We are being boxed in by irhis clutter and yet we go on making it '' ' MONDAY, OCT. 24, 19M AtOONA (Iowa) A0VAHCI—I i I am reminded of a story I read as a little girl that is true of our situation today. The Fox and the Ducks. 'The little ducks and their Mother lived by the pleasant clear' farm pond. When they were old enough to learn to /swim, Mother Duck took them out cautiously into the uncluttered pond and bagan their swimming lessons. Each day they grew moiro'suro of themselves and ventured further out'in the pond. Came the day they were swimming merrily across and all about the fine cleui pond. Mother Duck relaxed her hovering and sunned herself by tha edge of the pond. A hungry old lox sitting on a knoll near (the pond had* his eye on the htitle ducks and 'thought 1 what- a tasty morsel'they would make. Bu(t.w ; .th all the space the little .clucks had to swim about in he kne.v it would b<? useless to try to' catch them. So he devised a'plan to corner them. • Each day he dropped a stick into the water; The first one made a loud splash and the little duetts swam quickly'to shore and their mother's Wing. When the ripplies were quiet they ventured out again. The first several days they were frightened by the dropping of the sticks into the water. Aiiter a tew days they grew braver and when all was quiet on the water they swam cautiously around the sticks, nosed them and as the sticks did not attack them they swam on and played os usual. Bach day the wiley fox dropped a stick, each one larger than the one before. The little ducks grew so used to them that they did not even swim to their Mother for protection. The sticks did not hurt them, true they began to curtail their freedom in the pond, but there was still space to swim, so they paid no heed. The pond gradually filled up and one day the old fox' came into the pond on a large log and ate up the little cornered ducks. Our pond of life was clear and free. Each year we have cluttered it with new pieces of legislation. We have come to think that legislation is the number one solution for all our problems. 1'rue we have needed some of the legislation but in many cases we haven't used good judgment or have let ourselves be persuaded by wiley toxes that this particular piece of legislation is needed. We have grown above our first fears and are lulled because there is still some room to swim but gradually we are oeing cornered and the day may come when the fox can crawl out on a firml bill and eat us up. Fantasy, you say! Well you think it over. Please use thoughtfulness and good judgment when you go to the polls to vote this November 8. If we elect good honest people to represent us in the legislature, they will do right by us and • we will be able to talk out our problems with them. We are challenged to keep at least some free space in our pond so our children can swim about. We are being pushed along into paths we do not want to travel by the fears tnat bssei us. They are the fears of insecurity, the fears of depression, of war and our individual abilities to face the realities of life. Our government and our way of life is being changed by the consequences of fear. Our best defense is a strong attack on our fears. They are the root of our trouble and we should defeat and bury these fears before they defeat and bury us. Now is the time for all American citizens to stand up and be counted. To renew the strength and ruggedness we inherited from our forefathers. Not be lured into the welfare state. The so-called welfare state does not encourage the bast human traits. In the long run the welfare state will produce welfare only for those who administer it and attach themselves to government bureaus and payrolls all of which clutter up our lives wiitlh obstacles to take away our freedoms. We must try to overcome the strange, overpowering fear which is distorting our normal vision and influencing our ' American way of life more than most people today realize. We must try to overcome our fear of our modern troubles and disturbances. It is time to strengthen our morals and recall the golden rule. And to practice it. None of us heed be swallowed up by wiley foxes, none of us need be buried under hard times, discouragements and calamities. None of these fears can swallow us unless we are willing. None of us must become too discouraged when times are tough and the struggle hard. Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise for us and we-have our opportunity to lay the foundation for a secure future and sound prosperity. We have a task to perform, lot's get going now before it is too late. •Frigidaire • Maytag • Monarch SALES & SERVICE BEED HARDWARE & APPLIANCE SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY Otto Laabs, former Algonan, who now resides at 359 Moffett Court, N, St. Petersburg, Fla., was given a surprise lawn supper by his neighbors on Oct. 15 to celebrate his 84th birthday.
