The most bt ,$te Wallace Vote Will come from the demoer.atsy./together 7 with practically all of the CommunistSj socialists and most of the rig-tag ahd bobtails 'of all parties, 'Henry is .hortest but a visionary ind'many of his best friends will refuse to vote f&r.hjm for president. If We remember rightly he has at^times belonged tp all of the parties, in- cluding'the prohibitionist, But it now seems that ho has,,found them all not to his taste. He now accuses; tfdth. of the old parties headed for war, About a year ago he visited Europe after being forced f ou>6'f the cabinet. He spoke rabidly against the United States diplomacy, and his talk' had a distinctly "rod" tinge. At that time his belittling of his own country Was by many regarded as vir- ging on treason. At the best it could hardly be in goOdj^aste^pming from a man whom his own country 'wfiicn' had sO highly honored for many years^as well as 1 his father before him. It is|now the thought of many that Henry's candidacy dn a tni'rd ticket insures the election of a republican. Gov. Dewey of New York is in the ,lcadi1for|ttKr nomination aparently,, but Taft and Stasien aWnot far behind, In case of a deadlock iin the republican convention it is ,frcely predicted "Ike" Elsenhower, will sweep the convention and be nominated in much the same manner that Wjljkie w|| nominated in 1940. The rang and file of tlte old parties .admire the great military and the • whole country could easily be ed 'for him.

II will be remembered thai in 1943 I organized the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpers and today we boast of a membership of 5300. Bud Zender thought he'd organize the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Slirpers but he found that there were only a half dozen Algon- jans who slirped their coffee, so he joined up with the Gulpers, and he's a good one. Speaking of Chrisimas decorations, I was thrilled with the many lights which were hung on the main drag and I started to count 'em one night and got up to 444 and then Alf Kresensky happened along and he offered to get me an adding machine and Bill Barry said he'd lug it alone for me to punch but I decided to guess at the light numbers and there are 346,009 globes in the display and if you don't believe that come out and count em yourself. The bankers sure gave me a royal welcome and -Ralph Miller even offered to lend me his bicycle this,' summer and Charley Murfagh said he was going io install a nice couch in the bank so I could 'lay down when I came to draw my breath because • on account of that's all I have io draw in any bank. And the mayor also handed me the nicest welcome, said he was glad to see me back in Algona, .because on account of now he will have opposition in the next city election as I propose to run for t>at office and I'm going ,to be ciestod and Mayor Kohlhaas says'* he's tickled to turn the offi a 3-room holise or Maybe give Us five gallons of gas, Whatever the committee does will be O.
