He added as a postscript "If 1 have asked too much, the standard papers, costing 60 cents per thousand will be all right." It may be that we arc going to have a colorful contest for governor.

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 Let's Quit Talking and Fight Frank R. Kent, the Washington newspaper columnist, is generally hated by all of the good New Denl democrats, because he is a constant critic of President Roosevelt and Mrs. Roosevelt. Of course it is not a good way to show one's patriotism at this time to be constantly criticizing the head of tho government. But at times it seems that someone like Kent serves a good purpose. Now he has opened up on the silly and duplicated press bureaus iof the government. The O. C. D., he says, now has a separate press bureau recently organized with a yearly payroll of $124.000. Kent says that every new government agency as soon as it is started immediately organizes a vast publicity department. He says that every time a new press agent goes on the payroll, confusion grows. Some time ago when the office of "Facts and Figures" was created it was hoped that this publicity array now numbering .over 3.000 full time individuals would be curtailed, co-ordinated and controlled. However, it has not worked out and still the big volume of press stuff floods the mails, in many instances being duplicated and most of which goes into waste baskets without being opened. A few days ago the O. E. M. established twenty-nine "regional press bureaus" in as many different cities, each headed by a S4,800-a-year press agent, all engaged in turning out press releases, wine-tenths of which duplicate the releases already turned out in Washington and none of which is necessary. Instead of encouraging the buying of bonds and the war efforts, this only makes the taxpayers mad. The immense sum spent uselessly had better be spent in- fighting the war rather than just talking about it. Of course this stuff comes from a source always critical of the administration but it has not been denied by anyone so far as "we know. Instead of hundreds of thousands of the press agents a couple of hundred could handle all of the publicity, and then have time to go to all the baseball games, if any, this summer. It is time we began to fight and not just talk about it. Politicians Gunning for Miller It seems that Earl Miller, candidate for the republican nomination fc-r governor of Iowa, has some political foes who are out to "get him" in any manner possible. To us some of the attacks on him smacks of persecution. The latest attack on Mr. Miller was made last week by W. W. Sharp of Burlington, a member of the state printing board. iMr. Sharp charges .that Mr. Miller .ordered special nomination papers at state expense costing .$33, and seems to think that this was wrongful. As a Jnatter of fact all of the candidates are furnished nomination petitions free of charge by the state. Mr. Miller says that he wanted the union label on his papers, the union label not being on the regular papers. He paid $12 out of his own pocket for the extra printing, and the state paid the rest, giving him the paper and the regular printing the same as the other candidates received. The bill for this printing was audited and paid by the full printing board, of which Mr. Sharp is a member. Other members of the printing board are State Auditor Akres, who is chairman; Attorney General John M. Rankin; Tom Purcell, Hampton, and Mr.. Miller. At' the time the printing was done, four or more months ago, the board raised yio question; and paid the bill when it was filed. Now that Mr. Miller 'is an active candidate for governor a member of the very board which allowed and paid the bill, tries to make something to Miller's discredit out of the matter. If there is anything to blame Miller for, the whole printing board is equally to blame. To us it looks like political persecution. * * * David K. Brown, who is also a candidate for the office of governor of Iowa on the republican ticket, came out with a farcial request to be furnished nomination papers according to specifications made by himself. Mr. Brown, who last.year was superintendent of printing, is not very friendly with the state printing board who caused his discharge from that office because as he claims he employed a democrat to edit the Red Book. Mr. Brown comes from Harlan, the home town of Nels Sen. Gillette's Nine Yrs. Service It was just nine years ago March 3, that all of the banks in .the United States were closed on orders from Washington', which Senator Guy Gillette recalls in an interview, was the day he and his family left their home in Cherokee, Iowa,'to take his seat in the house of representatives, to which he had just been elected. Mr. Gillette, n:w a member of the United States Senate, told how he had to canvass his friends in his home town to borrow enough money to get himself and family to Washington. When he arrived in the nation's capital things were at their lowest ebb, and the town was full of people asking the government fcr relief of one sort or another. Senator Gillette is an able and honest democrat and has served Iowa well. Many times he has not agreed with President Roosevelt and Is no "yes" man for anybody. In noting that conditions have improved In some respects during the past nine years, Senator Gillette called attention to the fact that it will not be long before our national debt will reach a total of 150 billion and expected to go much higher before the war is over. This was a suggestion perhaps that our apparent prosperity was more or less fictitious, the result of borrowed money. Senator Gillette, who has announced that he will not be a candidate for re-election after his present term expires, has faced the greatest problems in history during his service. He looks the picture of health and was recently voted the best dressed man in Washington. Opinions of Other Editors Governor WHsdn's Record Estherville News: Governor Wilson will step out of office at the expiration of his term, leaving His sensible and economic administration has left His esnsible and economic administration has left the treasury in good condition and the state government working efficiently. This record not only recommends Governor Wilson for further political duty but sets a valuable example by which future administrations in the state house may be judged. No candidate will succeed in impressing the voters by attacking the governor's record. A promise to continue his program is a good indication whether n gubernatorial candidate means to do well by the state. Attacks on the governor's record will reveal insincerity of purpose or a total lack of understanding as to the state's vital problems and how to deal with them. Governor Wilson has overcome the obstacles of prejudice and misunderstanding that were placed in his way to prove to the people of the state that he is a good administration. This accounts for his growing prestige and support. * * * Let's Hope He is Right Alfout This Clarion Monitor: The government is issuing a multitude of orders concerning what to do in case of air 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 va=t change in the international situation there will be no air raids in the middlewest. * • « Fory-Hour Week Indefensible Northwood Anchor: 'There are still a few astonishing- contrasts between the administration';; public pronouncements and some iof its actual policies," says the New York Times. "To cite but one example—although a tremendously important one—the same administration that is still expressing concern regarding the supposed complacency of the country at large is itself insisting on retention of the 40-hour week. The 40-hour week provisions in the Wage-Hour and Walsh-Healey acts are retained at a time when- they have become inexcusable on any ground. "There is some difficulty in securing clarity of thought about these provisions because of their ambiguous nature. Administration spokesmen have sometimes defended them as a necessary limitation of actual hours of work. When they have felt this position to be untenable they have in effect declared that they are not primarily provisions restricting hours by primarily provisions regulating wages. When we examine them from either aspect, however, we find that they are, under present conditions, indefensible" U'he Times might well have added that the loss of man hcurs because of the short work week is seriously delaying the defense building program. And while federal officials are complaining about the "complacency" of the people the government itself seems entirely complacent about the possibilities of defeat because of no greater reason- than that defense workers are not compelled to put in at least 48-hour weeks with Sunday and holidays added is extra days for relay workers. * * * Farmers Shoudl Demand Repeal of WPA Sumner Gazette: According to bits of information coming from several sources, farmers are becoming more and more critical of the continuance of the WPA and CQC, two of the well known alphabetical agencies. Every draft sees more and more farm boys going into the army, just at a time when the government is urging greater and greater production of farm products. The Gazette has suggested more than once that both of the above named relief organizations should, be terminated for the present. Those who have been employed on WPA should have no trouble in finding employment with so many in military forces and in defense production. We have also pointed out that nonrdefense expenditures should be pared to the bone. We are not justified in spending millions for defense unless we conserve mightily on non-defense things. One commentator stated the ether day that farmers should rise up in their might and demand cessation of CCC and WPA so that workers would be released to help on the farms. This writer continued by saying: "In this they are not expecting a 'new deal' but a 'fair deal.' A fair deal will be to cut government agencies, which are not only a drain on public finances, but also a drain on the labor needed to keep up Iowa's production, a production on which armies of the allies and the people of many lands are going to depend for subsistence." All Honor Frank Jaqua, Humboldt Editor 50 Years Frank Jaqua in Humboldt Republican Oh yes, we forgot that March 1 the editor of this paper started his fiftieth year as editor and ipublisher of The Humboldt Republican. Next March he will finish, if he is alive, the fiftieth year at the same job. 'Fifty years is a long time for one man to stay in one place. The people who put up with him for that length of time should be rewarded—or punished. If he proved worth while they are to be complimented for givraig him enough patronage to prevent liis seeking a better location, and if he was a detriment to the community they deserve what they got. Someone has said that a man is what he eats. '•That is, what he eats makes him what he is. In a sense it is true. It can also be said that a man is what the community makes him, or it is what he makes it. And so if the community is good and a. man has lived in it fifty years without arrest or violent disturbances, he has to be a pretty fair sort of citizen. If the community is bad then he is to blame for he helped make It what it is. The people of Humboldt take pride in their town and the people about it, which shows that it is ^t least a, good town as towns In this section of the world go. It had been the thought of the editor to throw a little party next March. Nothing elaborate, but perhaps a beef sandwich or two and a, few cups of coffee for the people of this vicinity. Not to pretend that the editor is a "helluvafellow" but to express his appreciation, for the kindness and thoughtfulness of the people of Humboldt and Humboldt county, who have permitted him to live here fifty years. But that may all be kicked in the head by this little world rumpus between ourselves collectively and Hitler, Mussolini and "The Son af Heaven" that are trying to impose their wills on us. „ iMaybe we won't get 'em licked by that time. And if so, perhaps the beef would do more good if fed to MaoArthur's men, and the coffee may be needed in home camps. If so, we'll drop it and call it a day. Wef'll be just as thankful whichever way it goes. ' ' (But if we can get the war over in time and the increased taxes haven't taken all our kale so we have nothing left to buy, eat or drink on such an extravagant scale, we'll all eat sandwiches and drink coffee to the event March 1, 1843. RAVINGS by MESt A Little of Thl« » A S Littl* of thai •• Not Much of Anything F. W. SetilpuM came down ffon Ringsted the .other day and he used to live east of Algona, bu since 1936 he's lived near Ringsted and he said the Danes Were pretty good people and I swelled all up like a poisoned pup, I was that hap py, and he said In another couple of years, hc"d 'be able to snakkl dansk along with any of 'em anc he didn't know I was a Dane whst! he said those nice words. And I'm half inclined to jret mad at John McDowell because .on account of the other night at Rotary [ was late and there was a vacant chair at the speakers' table and [ was going to plump myself into t and John said "it was reserved :or a man" and what does he think : am—a kid? And ao I sat in a •oom with Andy Foster and John Veber of near Irvington and Joe licker north of town and we were alone at the table and they ail enow how to use their eating tools ike Emily Post Wants 'em to and we were the elite at the feed and was happy and could almost forgive John for saving a chair for \ man—what does he think I am? Doggone! On Tuesday evening at 6 o'clock Standard war time, March 10, 1942, A. D., the whistle which whistles 6 and for me to quit whistled.40 seconds from the time It started until the time the whistle died down to a groan and it just begins to look like whoever pulls the string or pushes the button is giving me the horse laugh because on account of I think that's too much whistling and have said so in this column and he .or she, whoever It is, just sits on the button- twice as long as formerly and I go the more nuts every time I hear it and I guess I don't have no influence with the puller or pusher or whoever it is that whistles at six bells. Oh, well-I'm going to prove to my thousands of readers that I can take it. Got into on argument with Th,os. Li. Stevens the other day when he said he knew more'n I did and which I guess he does and then he wanted to bet me a dollar he was 10 years older"n I was and I bet him the buck and he to nay if he lost and he won and he's 18 years older'n I am and he don't look It and he accused me of being childish and which maybe 1 am suffering wlht secbnd childhood, but t owe him a buck and I'm paying It In Installments a dime now and then because on account of I can't have him getting too mad at me after he's been,a subscriber to this paper for fifty years April 1st, but I maintain It's a draw and I'm just as smart as he Is—maybe. And Fred IMcWlicrtcr came In the other day. and after he'd paid for his paper I couldn't argue with him but he said Algona Was just a suburb of Whittemore and when he comes to Algona he gets dizzy winding around'and getting Into town and up and down, hills and we should furnish a guide for visitors or else build a straight road from the bridge north of town and when visitors come to Whittemore they have right angle corners and the roads are straight and there ire no hills and so forth and maybt lie's right because on account of C get dizzy myself finding my wa> into town from the north, too. But even at that I'll argue with anybody except subscribers tind I don't want 'em to get mad at me. —o— ' And I've found another man who suffers, silently, withal patiently, 'ike Henry Becker and myself, and t's Dennis Pratt because on account of he also plays a fiddle. Bong the poorest fiddler of the three maybe I suffer the most but I can always tell what's the matter with a guy when I find out he plays a fiddle because on account of I know what's the matter with me, and fiddling's done it. Here's a handful of sympathy, Dennis, I suffer with you. Look what tire rationing has brought us to—riding bicycles. And Herman Barker traded a '28 Chevy with five tires to "Dutch" Lbrenz for a bicycle and after Herman learns to ride it he intends to give me lessons and I'll be hopping one of those things and wig-wagging down the main drag and "Dutch" threatens to sell the Chevy to Paul Hamill because on account of it's painted a fine Irish green color. A bicycle club is about to be start- ed here with mert and wt>meft mem-' bet* and instead 6^ 'petple bfeak-., Ing.theif necks' 16 get gbrhe place In the ear they'll pedal through the streets sedately and With decdfiim and park the vehicle orf the side* walk and no worries about finding a place to park In the street and what a convenience because ort ae« count of they can lend the wheel t6 friends and no drivers" Itiee'nses required, no number plates, no expense except a tire now and then which Isn't rationed. And" Just think wh'at pumping a wheel will do to a gay's leg muscles and heart and bellows. And Pnul Phillips and Ed "Fields have joined the Gulpers and they are so enthusiastic about It that every time they gulp a cup they offer to wash the dishes and that's what I call enthusiasm plus. And Duane Dewel gulps one cup in the afternoon but In the 1 forenoon he sips a Coke and that disqualifies him for membership In the Gulpers' until he lays off the Coke. Got to live up -to the by-laws—it's coffee gulp or nothing. Clia§. LaBarre, Theo. Herbst, Walter Llchter and Jack Morton are already proficient with their wheel pedals- and Theo. said in another week, .he'd have muscles like Superman and might jump over the cburt house some afternoon and which Herman says takes a lot of muscle and I am looking around to see If I can trade my old bus In on two bikes so the Mrs. could pump along with me when we go to Fenton some .Sunday to visit. Yep, ihls bicycle business is taking the town by storm and here's hoping they dori't get so thick In the streets we have to have traffic cops.
