»AQB SIX RAVINGS by A Itttte of tMaA little of that N«t much o» anything _ L IVINO. COHTS will he considered lit tho tluly porch party .«*T tho T)cs Mollies T/eagtie of Wo•men Voters to ho held .Monday al *ho home of 'Mrs. Lee Weeks."—t>es •fnlnes Sunday Register. ACCORDING TO reports the porch party was n great success And all present luul n. fine time. The crowd was very select. No coal heavers, street sweepers, or even RiirlKtpe haulers were represented. Thoir wives are voters all ilshl, hut It Is presumed that, only tho select need •to delvo Into the mysteries of llvhifr costs, rt may have been •agreed that tho wife of the humble but honest coal heaver has as binding n. vote as the wife-of the wealthy hut haughty merchant.. Hut a, porch party Is just not the place Cor folks who hava no big porches of their own. o—o T HK PORCH PARTY may have discussed methods to lower living costs for conl heavers »tr»et sweepers, working men and but such WHS not printed •*t the, Newspaper Iowa Depends Upon. Kuthcr tin- discussion muy !i»vo luul to do with tho conduct of NEW WORK ON IOWA HISTORY IS PUBLISHED Five Volume Set is to be Delivered to Buyers. The story below will be oC Interest to a number of Koasuth county citizens who subscribed tor the forthcoming history when a youiiK man representing the publishers canvassed Algona nnd the rest of the county n year or two ago. .in<l a cut In the chauf feurs' salaries. Heally, 1 don't see the porehers could expect liv- costs much lower than they are, is, tlu> food part of the costs. ~M*y be necessary to fire a iiuiid or *wt» lUid have- the chauffeur mow «fcc lawn and weed the onions, or H may oven be a Aviso m<»ve to lower -Vbn cost, of existing by jacking up *ho two big ears and using only the jttncy— or have the Mrs. do the family wash, and get u meal for hubby occasionally! 1 would be the 3nst in the world to suggest a hardship 01 the part of the porehers, but if they want to lower the cost «f living, I hare, a few stunts to offer which will do that very thing. o — o J UST 1XTOKS TO MK like the ]>os Motnes porch party catered more to those purse squeezers who Jmvo plenty in thoir purses to squeeze. And while living costs tnay mean something to them, it appears to me HUo the farmer, tho workingmnn, the jobless, would be more intorestcii in how to. find something upon whloli to li\'e. Per- Ii.i4is that's one of the reasons only those who have woi-e at the party and those who have not were left to discuss their own living costs problems. AND AGAIN it may be that ttio cost of the feed bag was not mentioned. Hence a. fanner would be- out of phice at the porch party, for all of his worry has to do with the growing of foods — not the cost of them — regardless of what a bowhiskered, wil-hal benign, congress may have promised him in the past. o — o I DOUBT ABOUT the need for July porch parties. And the liig-gor the porches the bigger the •parties. Must be front porches — «toops and back porches are out, tor only those folks who have big porches can understand living costs, <or are hurt by them. The common dub, such as I and, perhaps, even you, can have no Interest in living costs now — having reduced them, of necessity, long, long ago. Torch parties and living costs are, therefore, of no import but to swells. And who can, by any possible etretch of imagination, agree that a coal heaver or street sweeper, or their wives are swells? Just ain't in the. book! AND THAT PORCH party brings memories of our late •congress. A dress parade, a. lot •of wind jamming, discussion Rsvlore, refreshments, adjournment. What was accomplished? You figure that out for yourself. o — o Y OTI HAVK OSLY to rend the papers to Irani that the farmer is not so darned affluent as lots «T folks think he is. With new pats soiling at l?c 1 haven't heard of even chain fanners getting rich. ''With oats going arouud 13 bushels <to the acre, the fiirjner gets the munificent sum of $5.10 for work ing an acre. Deduct the cost of seed, the landlord's share, the threshing bill, the hired hand's wages, and that $5.10 has hardly tlio "." left, LOOKS LIKE THE farmer is the goat coming and going. He'll probably get about 2'5c for new corn, but some bird will make a batch of squirrel whiskey out of it and clean up five bucks or better. o — o I T'S KVKX FIXED so now that tho fanner 'most has to give his hogs away, and the radio companies buy the squeal for litlle or nothing and call it static. Old Bossy's hide brings as much as the beef she had on her ribs, and after » pair of shoes is made out. of it : ttus fanner buys it back for $4.50.1 t>r maybe the hide is turned into a 1>ass drum head and some elongated feird beats his way up the main drag behind a band. EVEN AT THAT things would not be so bad for the farmer if his expenses and taxes were hewn accordingly. But he still pays $2,50 per acre taxes, mostly, some times more mostly, digs up several bucks each on his horses and cows and pigs and what other possessions he may have. If there's anything left over after the year has passed in•to history he is welcome to spend tt for insurance and subscription to '"tils home paper. o— a T HE KNOXVILLE EXPRESS kids the Advance for printing "Havings" — says it looks like local ttalent. That is the finest compliment any newspaper can pay to my efforts. I'm happy, for my stuff iias ridden in "The Rear Seat," has been gedunked in "Over the Coffee," 'has found space in Alien's own joolumn, (ma now in the Knoxville 3£xprees. What more of glory could a bumble dub such as I ask for? Sexton Announcement bus just been received of the publication of the "Narrative History of the People of Iowa," by Edgar U. Harlan. The five volume work Is published by the American Historical Society of Chicago and New York. By more than 20 years of work in collecting material,, In administering the 'Historical Department, and by his radio talks and other special messages to stir up interest In local and state history, Edgar R. Harlan has come to be known in every Iowa county. This publication, with his name on the title page, is a substantial and permanent evidence of his enthusiasm as n. collector and of his zeal to promote a better understanding of the broad forces and Individual actors In tho state's history. Prominent lowans Featured. While the emphasis Is upon the economic, political and social problems of "The People of Iowa,", the narrative moves from one epoch to another by the successive introduction of the outstanding personal fig- ues in each era. Through the Dodges, George AV. Jones, Lucas. Chambers,, Clark and others, the Territorial development is unfolded. Similarly, since Statehood, Iowa's history is interspersed consecutively through the "mass movements" that are divided into milestones under such names as Hempstead, Grimes, Kirkwood, Harlan, -Mason, Wright, the Wilsons, Gear, Allison, Dolliver, Weaver, Cummins, and their contemporaries. National Influence Treated. Iowa "In National Affairs" is another dominant motif in this historical treatment. National forces powerfully influenced Iowa's development, and lowans in turn projected their influence into the life of the nation at many critical times. Iowa was a cornerstone of the early republican party, gave magnificently of its manhood to the preservation of the Union, but was a Balance wheel against the forces of reaction after the war. In the later decades of the Iflth century Iowa was the laboratory for the testing of experimental methods in controlling the corporations; agrarian movements scored definite triumphs, but here they were tempered with reason where in other sections they went to radical extremes. Later came Iowa's contributions to the progressive politics of the present century. Story Down to Date. Throughout the pages of this history is a rational enthusiasm for the great facts in Iowa's life as a state and a people. The story is told in full from the first visit of Marquette down to the beginning of Governor Turner's administration. The illustrations for the most part are reproductions of the portraits, many in oil, by well known artists, of the leading figures in the history of Iowa. For people who use a work of this kind primarily for reference, a voluminous index affords ready access to thousands of names imbedded in the historical or biographical contents, and to all the major subjects—wars, railroads, agriculture, institutions, education, church- The Howard Andrews faintly left Monday for Lake Mills to spentt the week with Mrs. Andrews' father, who is sick.
