We know that a country cannot fight to win them once and stop. We learned the hard way that liberty and freedom and democracy are prizes awarded only to those people who fight to win them and then fight eternally to hold them." —Sergeant Alvin York, 1918 Alcohol Plants for Iowa ,For a number of years an effort has been made for the establishment of plants in 1 Iowa for the production of industrial alcohol, which has now be- aome vital for war-time needs. Last week a group of Iowa men headed by Dr. R. E. Buchanan, director of agricultural experiment station at Iowa State college, went to Washington to interest the government in the establishment of such plants in northwestern Iowa. They named ten counties in the midst of Iowa heaviest corn producing section where the plant or plants might bo located. The counties named were Buena Vista, Pocahontas, Humboldt, Wright, Calhoun, Webster, Hamilton, Greene, Boone, and Story. It seems that corn also contains elements which may be utilized in the production of synethetic rubber, so much needed now. It is stated that Iowa has more than half the nation's entire surplus of oorn, which may toe had at the lowest price of any section of the country. It is suggested that one or more plants of 10,000 to 25,000 gallons daily capacity be federally financed. The establishment of new plants for the production of indusrial alcohol has always been fought by the plants rucw having a monopoly on alcohol production, who claim now that there is not enough copper to provide the proper equipment. Senator Guy Gillette of Iowa is taking great interest in the scheme which might be a good thing for this part icf the state, ,as well as furnishing something very much needed for the great war effort. ther the candidacy of Earl G. Miller, present sec-, retary nf state, for the office of governor for .which he is a Candidate In the Jund republican ptinWUs. Mr. Miller, who has been secretary 1 of state for two terms, and outside of some of the bosses of the party objecting to the way he started out to handle the road patrol, has not been criticized. The handling of the road patrol was taken out of his hands, after claims were made by members of the safety council that he was trying to make It a political machine. It may be that It was only his political opponents who were trying to deprive him of some of his perogatives. We dcri't know. At the end of his first term he was re-elected by next to the largest majority of all candidates on the republican ticket, which looked like he had received the endorsement of the voters by his conduct of the office. IMr. Miller, who is in this 53rd year, ,was born in Warren county, Iowa. He came to Des Moines when he was ten years old.. After high school ho attended Chicago University <cf Applied Science. He returned to Des Moines and was employed by the late Governor Hammill for six years. He is i Mason. Odd Fellow, Shrlner, Moose, and is a member iof the Church of Christ. As secretary of state it is claimed that he has put the office on a business basis and saved the state many thousands of dollars in fees heretofore uncollected. Mr. Miller says that he is an ordinary business man and has little time for "big shots" in politics or elsewhere. The New "Victory Suits" This is war. The many new boards down at Washington are really getting busy at last'and there is going to be many changes In our mode of life and dress, it seems. The war production board last week decreed that after March 30th men will have to adopt a radical change in their clothing and .style of dress. After that date there will be no cuffs allowed on men's trousers, no pleats, ncr patch pockets. Two pants suits will be positively taboo. No vests 'will be allowed on double-breasted suits, full dress coats and all evening suits will be re- tricted to the single breasted tuxedo. Overcoats will be considerably shorter and will have no belts, cuffs on sleeves, outside patch pockets or fancy backs. Pants will be considerably tighter and everything will be more meager in the effort to conserve the wool supply for the army. It is estimated that the new style will save forty ior fifty million pounds of wool per year, and at the same time men will be as fully dressed as they were before the order becomes effective. The new style will b'.' called "victory suits". Opinions of Other Editors Herring Wise in Politics Senator Herring is a wise man in politics, as has been proven in many instances. He is not only wise in strictly political moves, but he has made a record in the United States Senate that can hardly be criticized by even his most'bitter enemies, if he has any. Senator Herring last week reported that former Governor Nels Kraschel is being considered for one of the top jobs in the federal land bank at Omaha. ,Three officials of the bank were removed recently and are to be replaced by new men. Of course th° salary that gees with the bank position will likely be tempting. Senator Herring and Kraschel have been political rivals in the democratic party for years. Kraschel has been regarded as a likely candidate for governor this year, but of c:urse this bank position would remove him from the race. (S::icf tile above was written, Mr. Kras- cliol has announced himself us a candidate for govenvr, and it is apparent that he lias been (fivtMi tin* green light for thatl office by Sqnutor Herring. This means that they will ' hereafter work together in politics. In his piihislicd anounoniiient Kraschel mude 11 strong plea for the retention of Herring as United Sattes Senator. It will be a winning combination.) Earl Miller for Governor Chas. W. Lyon, an attorney frcm the Secretaiy of State's office in 1 Des Moino.s, was in Algona recently on business, and book the occasion to fur- Air Raids in Iowa Unlikely Humboldt Republican: The government is issuing a multitude of orders concerning what to do in case of rair raids, which do not apply to this section of the country. In fact, they apply to a very limited portion of the United States. Unless there is a vast change in the international situation there will be no air raids in the middle west. * • * Poor Congressmen and Their Pensions Ringsted Dispatch: Seldom have folks been so universally "burned up" as they have over the pension bill our congressmen voted for themselves. Of all times to pull such a stunt, this was the poorest they coud have chosen, and the quicker they repeal the bill the quicker they are going to get rid of a hot potato. If our senators and representatives aren't satisfied with their $10,000 a year salaries perhaps we can find someone to take their places who will be. * * * Has Faith In Our Boys Humboldt Republican: A professor at Iowa,City where the University of Iowa is, was quoted recently as saying that Iowa 'boys and girls are not constitutionally tough enough to meet war conditions. We don't believe it It is true that we have in their present state many that do not meet army requirements, but they can be toughened. The old stuff is there if it is brought out. They are not sons and daughters of their parents if it is not. A race does not degenerate in twenty years. We have become used to riding in autcs, on motor-driven plows and machines, to using electric driven cream separators and power pumps and we have done away wi,th the man-killing machines that we used to have' _But any generation that can dance all night and be in fair condition in the morning needs nothing but an incentive to march all night and fight all next day. Remember ^iovv the boys during World War I went into the ranks with aching feet and numb calves, and after a few weeks treatment where they traded their thin-soled oxfords for army shoes with solos as thick as sirloin steaks, and a pair of wool socks instead of the silk gadgets, that they wore in civil- ism life, they could march just as well as the old boys did back in the Revolution? They can do it again. * * * Air Planes Will Win War Clarion Monitor: Every week shows that control of the air wins battles on land or sea. That is because airplanes can destroy all enemies they can reach. Control of the air means control of everything in the air, plus that on the ground, on the surface and under it. Therefore the nation that controls the air will control the world. That's where your Uncle Samuel believes he "has the world by the tail." That is he can produce more airplanes than any other nation on earth. More, the Americans and democracies of Europe can produce more war material and more men than all the rest of the world. PLAN TO RAISE TEN BILLION IN TAXES It is becoming apparent that the financial burden of war is barely beginning with the taxpayers of the 'United States and that next year close to ten billion dollars will be collected if the plan last week proposed by Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau goes through. We are all anxious and willing to pay as much taxes as we can for war purpose but senseless extravagance in governmental spending and social experiments such as has been poing on for a number of years will be buked at the polls if continued. • * » * The plan of taxation as laid before congress and reported by the Associated Press is briefly about as follows: "* As a down-payment on victory, Morgenthau asked doubling of most people's individual income tax, with rates so stiff that a single mare with a $3,000 salary would pay 5230 tax and if he made $1,000,000 "Would only be allowed to keep about $100,000. Part of the tax probably would be deducted from pay-checks. He also recommended higher taxes on corporations, plugging of so-called loopholes, new and higher excise taxes oil 15 items such as soda pop and cigarets, etiffer estate and gift taxes, plus $2,000,000,000 in additional social security taxes to be specified iater. Together with existing federal taxes, the secretary said, this pro-, gttam wouldi fulfill President ^Roosevelt's budget request for $27,- 'OOO.OOO.iXM) of taxes in the coming Jfiscal year, beginning July 1. Morgenthau, in laying the program before the ways and means (committee, summed up his propos(except for social security) this ffiYom increased individual income tg«es, $3,200,000,000. , »nwn increased corporation taxes, •From increased estate, gift taxes ?330.000,000. Now and increased excise taxes, $1, .'340,000,000. iF'rom plugging loopholes, $680,000.000. Apparent total—$8,610,000,000. (Less conflicting taxes, $1.000,000,000. Net total increase, $7,610,000,000. iHe explained that the $1,000,000,000 deduction was necessary in his estimates because in many cases an increase in one tax may reduce the revenue from another tax. For in stance, the more taxes paid by corporations, the less dividends will be received by individuals, cuttin individual tax estimates. Morgeiitliau said the money was needed not only to pay fior war materials, but also to check inflation and "we should, therefore, tax so as to withdraw the greatest possible volume of purchasing power at this time, when money incomes are high and the quantity of goods for civilian use is shrinking day by day because of the demands of our war ef- tort." * * * •He reiterated his opposition to general sales taxes and declared that the new program "should be fair and non-discriminabory and imposed in accordance with ability to pay." "The cost of this war will have to be borne by everyone," he asserted. "It will be borne willingly and cheerfully if the principles of ability to pay is followed." | Most of 'his recommendations merely increased tax rates without disturbing the ordinary methods of computing taxes For instance, the secretary specifically asked retention 'of the present $750 income tax exemption for single persons and $1,500 for married persons, with $100 additional credits for dependents. iHowever, he did ask for removal of the 10 per cent earned income credit, and, renewing a proposal beaten by congress last year, urged that married couples be required to file joint returns. Under his plan, the first dollar of a person's taxable income would be taxed at the rate of ,16 per £ent. instead of the present maximum of 6 per cent. Tax rates, would increase rapidly until a maximum rate pf 90 per cent would apply to income in excess of $5,000,000. The present maximum is 81 percent. Overall, the increase in income taxes would average 60 per cent, but the increase is more than 100 per rent in the lower brackets where the vast majority of people are affected. * * * (Fifteen items were marked by Morgenthau for newer ^r heavier excise taxes. They include new taxes of one cent a bottle on soft drinks Candy and chewing gum would be taxed 15 per cent on 1 the manufacturers' sales prices. The gasoline tax of IMs cents a gallon would be doubled to 3 cents. Other increases would affect photographic apparatus, pipe line transportation, telephone and telegraph service, ioil, beer, wines, distilled spirits, transportation of persons, cigars, smoking tobacco, cigarets and cigaret papers. Gift tax rates, which are three- fourths of the estate tax rates in similar brackets, would rise correspondingly, but the permanent exemption of $40,000 would be cut to $30,000, and the annual exemption of $4,000 per individual gift would be changed to an annual exemption .of $5000 total of all gifts. IMorgentihau reiterated requests for economy in non-defense costs of the federal, state and local governments. RAVINGS by REESE A Llttlt ofThli« £.

Thank goodness, zippers have not yet entered the undies field and maybe We'll be allowed to still wear the same old shorts—with the same old buttons. Be that as it may, If it will help lick the Japs I'll wear a bathing suit (and I don't look so hot in one of those things, either) and ride a bicycle. The Ladies' Auxiliary to the An- cient.Order of Amalgamated Coffee Gulpers held a meeting at 3:30 last week and selected the official anthem for the organization and it's a song which has to do with coffee and Java and Java is a nickname for coffee and it goes like this "I Lcve Coffee, I Love Tea, I Love Java and It Loves Me" and the music is pretty and goes 'good with coffee, and the Ladies' Auxiliary sextette is rehearsing the number for public presentation at a joint meeting of the Gulpers and the Auxiliary at 2:30 at the high school auditorium next week. The Little Senate which meets every morning in Barry's passed an Important bill Wednesday morn- Ing when by one vote It was de- dlded that girdles, suspenders and .. garters were a necessity and that erasers and rubber bands should be collected In Algona to use In continuance of manufacture iof especially girdles and suspenders. Senator "Andy" Andersott's vote was the deciding one. The bill was sponsored by Senator Clark Scuff- ham because on account >of he says suspenders are life savers. The minority was led by Senator Jim Devlne. The vote \|jas recorded as follows : Ayes— Senators "Andy" Anderson, Clark Scuffham, Bill Sigsbee, O. I* Thoreson, Bill Lane, Dave King and Cleve Barton. Nays — Senators Ken Roney, Chas. Heard Loyal Young, J. A. Raney, Earl Vincent and Jim Devine. The senate agreed that if a guy was seen coming down the main drag hanging on to his trousers it -would be because on account of he ain't got no suspenders. I looked up what the word gink meant and that's what Dr. Cretzmeyer called me icnce and there ain't no such word as gink except there's a tree In this country known as ginkgio, a genus of peculiar gymnospermous, and so I'm not ?olng bo get mad at the doctor unless he meant that' I was a sort of wooden head Anyway gink ain't what I thought It was and I'm going to keep my glasses on and which ought to tickle the doctor.

Let us make the food attractive, and by all means, let's avoid monotony.
