PAGE EIGHT. THE P0STV1LLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA As I See It by C. W. D. FREE TO WRITE! By John Reed Karcl Former Editor.. Kewaunee, Wis., Enterprise This is Fire Prevention week, but it also National Newspaper week, so while Mayor Duvall ably discusses the former in his adjoining proclamation, I will devote a little attention to the latter. It is. by heredity, occupation, choice and pay cheek, closer to my heart. Sitting here, propped up in front of a typewriter. I am free to write anything I desire just so long as it is within the bounds of common decency and the liberal postal regulations. I can publish that writing in my newspaper and send it through the mails into the homes of this community. T need show this column, before it is published, to no one, I am the sole judge of what will occupy this space this week. Here in America we call that '"Freedom of the Press." It came down to me. as a marvelous privilege, from the men who founded our country- It is not a "smart alec" right which I can abuse, because it is governed by the needs, requirements and good judgment of the people of my community. They demand of me the truth wherever it is possible to obtain it, and accuracy in my reporting. They can. by the very weight of their collective opinions, put my humble opinions out of business. So then. Freedom of the Press, as we celebrate it during National Newspaper week, is not merely my freedom to print what I please. It is, let's say, my right to say what I think in my own newspaper providing I do not offend the patriotism, the good morals and the collective better judgment of a majority of my readers. This is a marvelous privilege, compared with what the Press of the rest of the world enjoys. Only free men enjoy the right of a -free press. . . . but it is also true that only a free press can guarantee and maintain the rights of a free people. Sitting here, I can write that I dislike the policies of my government and my President: that I don"t like the way the army is being run: that church services will be held next Sunday. But the larger portion of the world today, editors and writers, can't say those things. A man who writes for a government-controlled newspaper, or the dictator press, can say only those things which are put in his mind by his bosses. And when that happens, the people who read those newspapers are no longer free. So I would say that National Newsaper week is just as important to you. the reader, as it is to me. It isn't a week in which you are expected to eat more apples, buy a lapel button or don your straw hat. It's simply a week in which, thoughtfully and of your own free will, you should resolve that you will do everything in your power to keep the press of America free. In that way, you will simply be guaranteeing the continuation of your own Freedom! FARM KERNELS. Feeder lambs fresh from the western range won't do well on high-quality hay for a while. W. F.

Mork stopped them for no gain, Hoth declined an offside penalty. Jack Meyer tackled a pass receiver after a three-yard gain. Then a Fayette punt was blocked and recovered on the Fayette 32. Meyer was good for five. Schultz for 16. and Mork went the 11 to score. A pass'for the extra point failed. PostviUe 38. Fayette 0. N 38 To 0 At Half The PostviUe kickoff was very good and Fayette was halted on their three-yard line. Duwe made the tackle after a two-yard gain. Jack Meyer stopped them for no gain. Fayette punted and Schultz returned to their 29. A 15-yard penalty was handed the Pirates for clipping on the play. Schultz carried for 22 and Meyer for six. A pass was incomplete. Then a pass from Rima to Gunderson was good in the end zone, but the play was nullified because of an offside as the half ended. Postille scored again during the third quarter on a 15-yard run by Jack Meyer. The extra point failed. A blocked punt by Bachelder as the quarter ended set up a fourth period touchdown which Meyer made on a 20-yard trip. Schultz was good for the extra point. The final marker was the result of a spectacular punt return of 72 yards by Schultz. The extra point was unsuccessful. To single anyone out for. praise in this contest would indeed be dif- Ificult; for everyone on the team put forth brilliant play. Probably the improvement in Merle Meyer's defensive plays were the most noticeable good points among the many during the game. Junior High and Reserves Lose Games Last Week NOTICE! Dumping of Garbage in the Town Dump is PROHIBITED The dumping of garbage in the dump has created obnoxious odors and an unhealthy situation, and must be stopped immediately. M. C. PEERING, Mayor TOWN OF POSTVILLE Waukon's new coaching policy paid off with a 14 to 0 victory over Postville's junior high football team at Waukon, Tuesday, September 28. Waukon's junior high team with 32 squad members in charge of two coaches who have no other coaching duties scored in the second and fourth quarters. The running attacks of the two teams were about even, but Waukon had a decided edge in passing. Their first touchdown was scored on a pass and their second set up by a pass. Both extra points were made good on passes. Showing promise for PostviUe was Marlen Schutte, fullback, who did well on downfield blocking. Leigh Rekow, left half, and Ralph Gunderson, guard, turned in good jobs on the defense. Reserves Lose Postville's reserves were defeated by the Campion freshman- sophomore team 12 to 0 here on Wednesday, September 29. Although the PostviUe team was in possession of the ball most of the game and gained ground at will between the fifteen yard lines, they could not find the plays that would score for them. Campion scored on a long pass at the end of the first half. Their final counter came on a pass interception. A PostviUe pass, thrown in desperation, fell into a Campion player's hands who ran 85 yards for a touchdown just as the game ended. Don Elvers fullback, was the best ground gainer for the Post­ viUe reserves and proved to be a capable receiver for quarterback Dick Searls' passes. Luther Heins, higbthalf, turned in some nice gains and showed signs of promise as a downfield blocker. Hilery Heins, playing at guard, turned in the best defensive play of the day.

HILL POSTVILLE, IOWA "B( HEATING MSC C0L0N/AL/ZC The Republicans of Iowa are presenting to the voters an exceptionally strong ticket this year. Headed by George A. Wilson, for reelection as United States Senator, and William S. Beardsley, as the candidate for governor, the Republican Party of Iowa, is offering a group of candidates, who are not only qualified by experience, but have shown themselves to be courageous leaders who will serve the best interests of the people. William S. Beardsley, the party's candidate for governor, comes before the people with an outstanding record as a legislator having served in both the upper and lower branches of the Iowa General Assembly. He was Republican Senate, floor leader in 1935 and 1937, and during his seven legislative sessions built up a record of achievement. He is a business man and a farm-owner and understands the problems of the people. Bill Beardsley will make Iowa a good governor, and Iowa needs Bill Beardsley. For Lieutenant Governor Kenneth A. Evans, of Emerson, is a candidate to succeed himself. His record speaks for itself. Melvin Synhorst, of Orange City, an overseas veteran of World War II is the party's choice for the office of Secretary of State. He is seeking his first elective office and his nomination is a concrete example of the Republican Party's desire to serve youth and war veterans. Also seeking his first elective term is Robert L. Larson, for Attorney General. Mr. Larson, who was first appointed to this office to fill a vacancy, has done an outstanding job since his appointment. Others on the ticket, all candidates for reelection, have in the past rendered distinguished service to the people of Iowa. They include Chet B. Akers, Auditor of State; J. M. Grimes, Treasurer of State; Harry D. Linn, Secretary of Agriculture, and Carl W. Reed, Commerce Commissioner. Under their leadership Iowa has enjoyed the greatest prosperity in its history. Sound Logic The Ft. Dodge Messenger, in an editorial under date of Septernber 22, 1948, applies sound logic to' the Iowa campaign with particular emphasis on the senatorial contest between Democratic Guy M. Gillette and Senator George A. Wilson, who is up for his second term. Recognizing that every poll based upon mathematical analysis or public opinion, practically concedes Iowa to Dewey, the Messenger warns against handing Governor Dewey an impossible job by threatening him with an hostile; Congress. Says the Messenger: ''If Gover-| nor Dewey is to do an outstanding job he s'hould have a Congress which will support him. It would be like calling a carpenter and then taking his tools away from him and still expecting him to proceed with his work." The editorial goes on to say that some lowans seem to have been deluded, "into believing that Gillette is really a Republican at heart. , "Nothing could be farther from the truth, Gillette, with rare exceptions, has gone down the line with the New Dealers and with the New Deal philosophy of government. Put him back in the Senate and it can be confidently predicted that he will be an obstructionist of the worst kind to the Dewey administration. Iowa voters should bear this in mind. George Wilson served with outstanding success as governor of Iowa and in a like manner in his first term in the United States Senate. There is a rugged and forceful honesty about Wilson that makes him a real servant of the people. His past service .amply warrants his reelection to the Senate for a second term. The people are simply serving their own interests in voting for a man like Senator Wilson. This year, as noted, it involves more than might ordinarily be the case. Wilson will be needed to support Dewey. If your choice for president is Governor Dewey, then by all logic, your choice for United States Senator should be Senator Wilson."
