4-ALOOfU (fewi) ADVANCf THURSDAY, NOV. 3,1»46 "INK in my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN ft* J¥¥»J¥»»** Our neighborhood is concerned and night rest broken as faihiiuoj «,wu.ru uiw i«->uur'ii ho-uid On lui&uxiids and fathers who are patrolling. the pictures and roadsides tor killer dogs who have attacked, shea, kilLng and eating them, leaving some in an injured state to die. They hear the dogs barking, the sheep bleating but before they can arrive on the scene the dogs have supped away. They were out one night until early morning then as all seemed quiet went home only to have the dogs slip in and do rtiore damage than ever. A neighbor saw them but ba- fore he had alerted those with guns the dogs had left the scene. And so the search goes on. In a discussion group on opportunity a few evenings ago, the qucuLo.i Was asked, is there greater Lack of opportunity - these tiuys or vice veisa. There sewmed to be less complauit among uie younger people regarding lack oi opportunity to get a -job and start on the path to tame and glory, dome ot the Older group tuit that these days it is more dttiicult to git a ":,;Oii tne road of "making sometning out oi your sell." } My belief is that there is always opportunity if we make Y use of what is at hand. Life doas not hand its'gifts upon a | Christmas tree end invite us to help oursaiVes. 10 get these •| good'things of life we must gat out into the middle of the lj stream *nct face the dangers, the hardships and the uncer- 3 tainties of being pushed around by the force of the water. •j. ^ Gaining a place we may feel we are entitled to achieve because or-Oui 1 natural talents and abilities' is not easy, but we '^muit not be ciuscojraged. We need to keep at work and develop ourselves unitil we have so much to offer that it is obvious to ' ^ ' \. ' ' ' • • • : : '' When we read the biographies of the world's most successful men and woman, we are inclined to believe that they .were born ganiuses and that their lives were easy onas. The C discussion group brought up the lire stories of many successful parsons and their trials and struggles before they achieved their goal. T hat same day most of us had read of the death •j of &. 6. Krasga, the Pennsylvania Dutch farm boy who became | a multi-millionaire dime store magnate, the story of the early ':; struggles, of the wooiworth dime store magnate and we were I reminded of the achievements of Mr. Penney of the Penney I stores as hBuncijr's uays tor the Penney store are being ceia- , brated. ..•:. .. .'

EARLSTOTT _ REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR KOSSUTH COUNTY SUPERVISOR THIRD DISTRICT YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT WILL BE APPRECIATED, GENERAL ILICTION, NOV, • , Election day is coming up end when we choose the candidates ot our cho.ca I trust we will considsr honesty, unselfishness, integrity and good clean jiving. As we have carefully studied tna issues and the candidates to determine what is bast not for us or our minority but for our country, may we study and question pur qualifications to see if we justify the definition of "voter". Lats vole as if our ballot a,lone decided the contest. Wo may loue our pfe'itireritia but we will not have thrown away our sacred vote. Ii any ol us help to elect anyone to any public of- liice on. any other basis than • his ability to improve•'the^httniaiii. relations ol the world, we gamble Wnth our own life and the lives of our ohildraii. And remember that our one vote is imr portant. Many people have been, elected to office by one vote, many have lost by one vots. "Ons rain drop, one grain, of sand, one straw, one vote. Add one to another and you have a lake, a beach, a disabled camel, or an elected official." Years ago, John Piorpont, a Unitarian minister, who served as a chaplain in the Civil War, wrote these lines: : A weapon that comes down as still As snowflakes fall upon the sod; ; But executes.a 'freeman's will, ' < As lightening does the will of, God; ' And from'its force nor doors nor locks ; : , Can shield you-f-'Tis the ballot-box. this selection was written a century ago but has not lessened in its maaning with tirm. See you at the polls, vote carefully. "To nuen who love'.'liberty, those who starve the ballot box are no lees despicable than-tho^e who stuff it." "The ruij of life is to be found within yourself, Ask yourself constantly, "What is < the right thing to do?" Beware of ever doing that which you are likely, sooner or later, to repent having done. ' It is better to live in peace than in bitterness and strife. It is better to believe in your neighbors than to fear and distrust them. The superior man does not wrangle. He is firm but not quarrelsome. Ha is sociable but not clannish. The superior man sets a good example to his neighbors. He is considerate of their feelings,and their property. Consideration for others is the basis of a good life, a good society. Feel kindly toward everyone. Be friendly and pleasant among yourselves. Be generous and fair. Rules of Life by Confucius This I Believe About Stopping Over-Taxation lowaiu are, ov«ttax«d. The proof is a surplus in our treasury of ihora than $80,000,000. The higher taxes you now pay as the result of the present Democrat administration's failure to know what was going on in Iowa's economy built this surplus. , The number one test of a chief executive is a knowledge of what is haph- peniiig. If the governor bad known what was going on,lowaiu,, . . —Could Have had the tax taken off household good* and livestock In 1965. —Could have received • more state aid to schools. ; —Could have had state Income tax withholding without paying two years taxes : this year. ' ... —Could have started needed building »t state Institutions Inf 1065. —Could have glv« business some • relief from the Inventory tax. It's time for an administration in Iowa that bases tax policies on State requirements, not on how much money we have in our pockets.
