®pper AIGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 1966 VOL. 101 NO. SO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is having a birthday next week. Most of 'J-.z time we forget that the Fourth of July- Is really Independence Day and we do little about celebrating It as our most Important patriotic holiday. But If you are thinking of baking America a birthday cake, this year you should put 190 candles on Itt - o - . AMERICA IS A HARDY OLD-TIMER. The United States has weathered many storms and threats' of division but she has come through bigger, richer and, in addition, so vastly more complicated that John Hancock, William Whlpple, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin and the others who signed their names to the Declaration would probably nip their powdered wigs if they could come back and see it. - o - THERE IS AN OLD LEGEND, made into a poem, about some blind men who went to see an elephant. Each felt of only one part of the animal and thereafter concluded that the entire beast was exactly like the one part they touched. We'd have much the same thing if some of the men who signed our Declaration of Independence could come back and visit only one place in the country they helped to start. - o - IF JOS1AH BARTLETT, FOR INSTANCE, came only to New York City he'd conclude that the "laws for the accommodation of large districts of people"mentioned in the document had Indeed been passed. If John Witherspoon visited only a military camp, he'd say that we are still, "keeping among us, In times of peace, standing armies." But he'd have to admit that this time it's with the consent of the legislature. - o - IF SAMUEL ADAMS WENT TO Miami Beach he might decide that his descendants were kind of overdoing it on one of the rights mentioned in the Declaration -- the pursuit of happiness. If Edward Rutledge's lone stop in America was the Bad Lands of South Dakota, he might wonder a bit if those, "swarms of officers" hadn't been "sent hither to eat out all the substance" even as late as 1966. Lewis Marshall could go to Minnesota for his visit — the Chippewa National Indian Reservation. The Declaration .mentions "the merciless Indian savages destroying the inhabitants of our frontiers". Mr. Marshall might say, "Those bounders went and scalped all the pale-faces after all!" - o - SAMUEL CHASE COULD GO to the Department of Internal Revenue in Washington, D. C. If he thought "taxation without representation" was quite a grievance, he sould see what we do today about taxation WITH representation! - o - I AM STILL A BIT PREJUDICED, but! think for a look at America today at its very best, the Founding Fathers could find it in the Midwest towns and countryside. (Florida Is wonderful, but it's out-of-this-world and a bit too exotic to be really America.) The founders could drive out among the cornfields and see that the land is still rich and fertile. They could take a squint at the stores and industries. They could visit 'the schools and colleges and see what store is set by the education of the future generations. They could visit the churches and polling places and find that people do, indeed, worship and vote as they please, even If their skin isn't the "right" color. BUT THEY REALLY SHOULD TAKE a look into a home if they want 'to see what has become of that country they crusaded for In 1776. They should pick one with nothing unusual about it except the fact that it is so typical. - o - THEY'D FIND A CAR PARKED outside and the bill for the next payment on it dn the living room desk. Mom would be in the kitchen pushing the buttons on her labor-saving equipment and at the same time fretting over who is going to give the next program at the Woman's Club. Thanks to permanent waves, diet, cosmetics and a good girdle, she still has the bloom of youth at an age when, if she'd be living back in '76 she'd be considered quite elderly. - o - THE KIDS - THERE'D BE TWO OR THREE of them with maybe another one on the way- -would be full of vitamins and vigor. Probably you'd see their teeth in corrective braces, and you could bo almost positive they'd be exposed to the arts of music, literature, painting and the dance. And, American bathing facilities being what they are, the young sprouts would have not more than a twenty-four hour layer of grime on them at any one timel - o - YOU COULDN'T SEE IT, Messers Hancock, et al, but in that house there'd be happiness, love and hope for the future. There are millions and millions of homes almost exactly like this from Maine to Hawaii and from Alaska to Florida. America is a good place to live. And that's what has become of that country you started. - o- DURING THE WEEK OF June 26 through July 2, people having birthdays Include Clara Schapp, Jeanne Montag, Ed Farrell, Danny Smith, Sally Schattschneider, Duke Straub, Franklin Hagg, Don Jorgenson, Kay Kollasch Steven Gant, Antony Harmon, Lorri Ross, Lorri Gerdls, Lloyd Pratt, Philip Specht, Margaret Schutter, Allen Leaneagh, Dick Schneider, Linda ~Ross, "Suzanne p'lott, Marcia Nelson and Beverly Zender.

In the 10 years - 1950 to 1960 - the Census Bureau reports that Kossuth county had a net ''outward migration''' of 5,340 or a drop in population of 21.1 percent . . . but since I960, the ".outward migration" has leveled off ... and let's hope' it stays that way, or maybe bounces into the plus column.
