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 Hell Too Good for Hitler We are not sure or anything in these troublous days when it is hard to tell what will happen next. The war may be drawn out for years and the world end in choas and anarchy. But there certainly is one thing sure, and that is the place Hitler will be given in history if LTiere are any records Teft after the holocaust. It is hard fc> see how even the Germans could accord *him any place other than that of the most brutal red-handed murderer that th-2 world has known. The most brutal thing that he and his co-murderer Mussolini has done is the confiscation of all grain and foodstuffs in Greece, leaving the people ba starve by thousand- 1 *. It is said that between 150,000 and 200,000 Greeks have perished as a result of German and Italian occupation, by execution, massacre, starvation and mal-nutrition Unless a way is found to feed Greece, half the population of seven million will die. The Germans have stripped the country of seed wheat and left the Greeks without even bread, which is a major food with them. In Athens alione deaths from starvation and the cold averages 1,500 daily. In one orpanhanage 300 out of 317 children died after the appeal to the authorities for food was disregarded. In Norway this winter many of the poor people froze to death after Hitler had even taken their bed blan-kets for his soldiers. For some years we .had discarded the idea that there is a hell, but it certainly would seem that there should be something worse than hell was ever pictured where this monster could spend a long eternity. Be Patriotic—Drive Slowly The motor car drivers who have been burn- ins up the roads at from fifty to seventy-five miles an hour, now have a chance tio show their patriotism and at the same time save their own neck. President Roosevelt last week sent an appeal to all of the state to cooperate in reducing the speed limit on all cars to not over forty miles per hour for the purpose of conserving "rubber. It is known to all that fast driving wastes rubber a.nd that tires run many more miles when driven at lower rates of speed. Also high speed is the cause of most fatal accidents. Governor George Wilson of Iowa has issued a proclamation calling upon all drivers to observe a "careful and prudent speed," not to exceed forty miles per hour for the duration of the war. It is understood that naad patrolmen will stop motorists going faster than forty and warn them to slow down or else. It is thought few people will br found not willing to comply with the lowur speed regulation. It gives us all a chance to .show our patriotism. A Worthy Son of His Father Sons of prominent men have in many case.s been given preferment in the new draft army, and sometimes a commission has been given them whether they were qualified or otherwise. The three sans of President Roosevelt are all members of the armed forces of the country and have been commissioned, some say without regard to their qualifications. Be that as it may, we note with pride that young Francis Warren Pershing, son of General John J. Pershing, who commanded the United States forces in France during the first World War, has asked ma favors on account of tho illustrious name of his father, but has joined up •with the army as a buck private. The old general should, and doubtless is very proud of hi.3 only son. The young man is only 23 years of ago and has had no military training and proposes that any rank he may obtain shall be gained strictly through merit. Yioung Pershing leaves <i young wife who will go to the home of her parents in New York City, for the duration of the war. Ships and Planes Preferred to Money Humboldt Republican: The soldiers in the PWippines received a radio that congress was considering a bill to raise their wages and make more plans far the carp of their dependamts. They radioed back that they would rather that the money be spent for more airplanes and ships, and that some of them would get to the Philippines shortly. Opinions of Other Editors Mrs. Gillette Tells It* V. Kalfcenbom Eagle Grove Eagle: Mrs 4 Gillette, wife of Iowa's senior senator, deflated "Expert" Kaltenborn's ego, nicely and neatly. This alleged expert apparently went" through Iowa on a night plane, observed no blackouts, returned to Washington' and told the world that Iowa did not know a war was on. You do not get an accurate count iof a state's heart beats by spending a few hours in the state capital, or In other big cities, or even in the county seat towns. You have to lock at the complete record to get the pi4se count, as Mrs. Gillette frankly told Mr. Kaltenborn 1 . She cited our high percentage of voluntary enlistments In the army and navy, our casualty lists, our 'over-the-top Red Cross drives, our bond and stamp buying, which, compare favorably wltih any other state. Kaltenborn should read Quentln Reynolds' story in last week's Collier's. Reynolds relates that after he had spent two weeks in Russia he knew all about the Soviets, but after he had been there two months and traveled around a lot, he did not know anything about the Russians. To get the real lowdown on Iowa, visit the smaller communities. Stay away from the cities and county seat tawns. The real, sound serious thinking and doing is by the common people who do not talk politics and the war, 24 hours la day. But they do know the score and they are reliable. * * * Ickcs Goes Off Half-Cock Eagle Grove Eagle: Garrulous Harold Ii.kes had the country in a dither last week with another threat to ration gas and oil. He went off half-cocked on the proposition a few months ago and had to backtrack. And last week he threatened to make the same mistake again and decided first to consult the petnoleum industry, a real sign of sanity. He should have done that first. Anyway he found that there was a surplus of gas and oil, especially in the middle west, and that the rationing tires and stoppage of new car sales had so greatly decreased consumption that the present surplus was becoming a burden. If the government needs the oil to help win the war, the people will-intern their cars for the duration without complaint. But the use of the car and truck has become an essential feature of carrying on business. And business must be maintained as far as possible if people are to live, if the government is to continue collecting taxes in order to have the money necessary to carry on. Arty unnecessary curtailment is silly—and Ickes is sdlly. The country knew that before we got into the war. * « » • No Time for Bickering Mason City Globe-Gazette: American industry and labor can in this war but not by jockeying for private advantage. It can do it by putting peacetime ways of thinking out of the window, and by setting every machine in our unmatched production plant thundering at top speed day and night. The time is shorter than we had thought. Continued axis victories in the Far East and in' 'our coastal waters are steadily reducing the margin. We shall not have 1942 as an unhampered period in which to get ready ot win the war in 1943 or 1944. We have got to begin winning this war within a space of a few months—before summer is over. And (here is no time left to wait for Washington to sift a policy thtfough the sieve of politics and make everybody happy before the all-out effort starts. We've got to start now from where we now. are, and dig in with all we've got. .If we do not, Washington policies won't matter much. Our policies will be made in Tokio or Berlin, and the relative status of trade unions and private enterprise will matter less than a pin. There won't be any trade unions nor private enterprise in a land of slaves. (Let's take our eyes off of Washington, and turn them "home to the instant need of things." Let Washington catch up if or when 1 it can. In the meantime we shall be giving the American soldier, sailor and airman everything he needs to crush the enemy.. Do it now—and talk about it later when the job's done. * * * Money for War Estherville News: The war effort during the next fiscal year will cost the American people not less than 56 billion dollars, and budget estimates usually are low, even in time of peace.. This means an all- out financial effort to keep the war going. It is unfair, therefore, to ask the American people to pay for any functions of government that are not necessary at this time. It is as reasonable for the taxpayers to demand that as it is for the government to ask l;he taxpayers for their billions. Washington already has announced that many agencies and functions have been abandoned, but there are still more that ought to get the axe. It will do no« r to waive the matter of whether some of the frills were justified in peace time; it's certain we don't require them now. The American people accept the statement thut this is an alU-out war which cannot be won with half-hearted effort. The government itself has given the best reason for government going all-out for war. There is' room in the armed forces, private industry or the defense plants for everyone who wants to work. For the government to spend hundreds of millions where they aren't required during the war emergency is to contradict the statement that individuals must make super sacrifice. Early paring of the non-defense budget to the minimum is a necessary part of the supreme war effort. » » * Frugal Folks Care for Shiftless Clear Lake Reporter: There are 754 people in Cernc. Gordo county receiving old age assistance, besides 15 blind people who also receive assistance. Old age assistance is comparatively a new policy, but those really deserving, It is most commendable. However, peoplp today, many to say the least, fail to think of the dark days that may come later, and now spend freely and floolishly, for the unessential things of life, enjoying life to the full each day, with no thought or care for the tomorrow. The hard working people of thrift and frugality will thus be forced to care for these careless, undifferent, thriftless class who live up every cent they make from clay to day. * * * High Land Prices Marshalltown Times-Republican: Already wise men see land prices rising. Now is the time to buy they think, but God help us if we should ever have another land boom and $400 prices. Land could get back to its pre-world war price of $200 and still be a sound investment. Whenever your land goes above that price, sell! * • * Draft the Shirkers (Humboldt Republican: The bill to set aside the forty hour week for the duration of the war was killed in the Washington House of Representatives. Before the war the French labor unions also objected to working more than forty hours a week. Now they work fifty-three and for one-third what they drew under their own government. Why not draft all men who refuse to work more than forty hours a week? These are war times! Bombers Coming Fast From Plane Factories Notwithstanding the many strikes and stoppages of wiork in the airplane factories, it seems that planes are now coming out faster than crews for them can be trained. Frank R. Kent, who is one of the most bitter critics of the administration and who finds fault with most of the war efforts, thinks as many people do that this world war will be decided in the air. Kent is on a visit to the •west I'oast and has personally inspected a number of the big plane factories. He is very emphatic in his approval of the air effort He says that they are making bombers bigger, better and faster, than they can be made in Japan and Germany., He says for the first time they coming off the moving assembly line in the way automobiles used to come, Although not so fast. Kent says that "heretofore, it has been impossible to achieve mass production of these incredibly complicated and appallingly intricate weapons of war, with their 160,000 separate parts, ej:clusive of bolts, nuts and rive ts, of which there are 600,000. Nevertheless, it is being •done. In the Consolidated plant, starting lasf Saturday they are owning; off the moving assembly line as tbe infinitely simpler automobile came be- for<j it? production stopped. They are coming off $8 VMS 8» flUt th*t the totals are tremendously cheering. The pace these plants have struck now is the most heartening thing in all the country. It lifts the spirit. It is a sustaining antidote to bad news. It creates confidence, inspires admiration and respect. "The most stimulating, iof course, is that while what they have done and are doing is literally a manufacturing miracle, these plants really have just got going. If unhampered by fcators beyond their control; if unchecked by government red tape and incompetence; if not delayed by labor, politicians and their allies within the administration, the production of these bombers _ and fighting planes will increase month by montli until what seemed the fantastic program announced by the president last January is not only equalled but surpassed. "In such a forecast ag this, there, of course, is always an 'if. In this case the *il' has nothing to do with the management of labor. There i» no apprehension about anything connected with the plant or the workers. The relations between niftiiageoient and men axe cordial and cooperative., There U no apprehension about sabotage or enemy attack, against both of which the precautions seem adequate and ample." RAVIHGS by RE£S£ A Llttlt df Thi» - A Little of Th»t -Net Much And 1 hereby challenge Alfred Meyers, Dr. Ruake, Dr. s Mueller, Blner 'Fauerby, E. C. Welsbrod, Melvln Mansager, Chas. Newel and E. J. Frank, all of Fenton, tp meet me at the bowling alleys In Algona any time, night 6r day, for a match and I can beat all or any of 'em idlyldually or collectively, If I have to roll 320 bo dp It, and what do they mean going clear to Emmetsburg to bowl when we got one of those bowling alleys in my own and their own county? But I won't be responsible for the overshoes lof any pne of them so better make it summer When they can come barefooted, and that's that. E. C. Welsbrod was over from Fentpn Saturday and I saw him leaning against the Silver Gray cafe and he said he wasn't hungry but he wasn't holding up the building either and Fuzzy said maybe he should, get) some leaning material to hold the front up so E. C. wouldn't have to do it ami I am a better leaner-again- ster than E. C. any time though we're both pretty good at it. And here's a puzzler—two Danes —brothers—and lone is Otto Knudsen and the other is Nels Beck and Otto says he can sing Og Katten Efter Rotten Sprang but It ain't his fault that Nels never had time to write "Knudsen" and that waq why his name was just Nels Beck. And here's two Danes who confuse Come to find out Win. St. Clair is also.a connoisseur of pipes and has two of 'em 'and one of 'em decorates his desk in the FSA office and he uses a deodorant to keep it Spelling not,' too strong and Homer Hush, also of the FSA office, said he had a pipe once and knows how stout a pipe can get and all of this fuss about connoisseur- ing pipes is the bunk because on account lof the strength of a pipe doesn't mean a thing except for the loud noise it makes smelling and he says his pipe never got strong enough to lug in a bucket of coal for the cook stove. And now I'm all confused because en account of maybe a strong, pipe don't make any more smoke 'n a weak pipe. And Clias. Ostwinkle bought a new pipe and is having the old one reamed out because on account of he just had to fix it so Eddie Shackelford could get into the office to sweep it out, so to speak, Over at Wesley once every year the amateurs get together and play on instruments and sing and speak pieces and this year on Thursday, April 9th, the. amateur contest at Wesley is going to'be good because on account of I'm gioing to enter the contest with my fiddle and maybe I'll win a prize and Mrs. Lester Lease .has asked me would I bring my -fiddle and fiddle for the kids and I said I would and it'll be fiddling that's fiddling by a fiddler who can fiddle on a fiddle that's a fiddle and it's going to be worth the price of admission just to hear me do my stuff and the rest of the program yiuu can consider didn't cost you anything and my fiddle's ptot four strings and I fiddle on all four of 'em, maybe not so hot but I get a squeak out of 'em awful easy. The Wesley folks are getting the band out and expect to lead me up the main drag in a parade Thursday evening, April 9. Remember the date because on account of it's a historic one for me and my fiddle and Wesley and Kossuth.

L. Gllmore, Bill Giossi, Andy Godfredson, Graham Stores, Greenberg's or the General hospital and we dould use sllveV at our house but the "G" stood out like a million dollars and then the crowd started to sing and I found there was a lot of folks in Algona who can't sing worth a hoot. And there was Dr. Sfehaap at one end lof the room and Jim Woodmansee at the other end of the room and they directed the singing very nicely and got what little music they could out of that crowd but I think the boys ought to'have a little practice so they could wave their arms in the air more sycliron- izingly or get together spirit so folks wouldri't think they were waving so futilely to get trie ^most out of the, crowd, and my bass stood out and everybody down my way almost forgot their words looking and listening and maybe I'll make the high school beys' glee club yet and Chet Williams sat at my table (it doesn't belong to me, I was just using it to hold my victuals and eating tools) and he liked my cigaret case and he looked at it and turned it over and over and I thought at first he was never going to give it back and then be only took, one cigaret (thank #o&dne»s) and theft Ru««6l Coflk lot hold o! it and he Said LtJeky'* were fattenting and he smoked the klftd 1 that dldrt'l h&n•& btidkef 8: coat in a carload and fill!

AUNT uucra Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING .. „ , —Tea, there is a change ahead for ; you in the tetter part pf •Now that "Black-outs" occupy an ominous niche in the back of everyone's mind, today's column seems an appropriate time and place to tell you of a very important piece of information that science has uncovered as aniother part of our home defense. Do you know what the British Ministry of Agriculture recently recommended to Londoners to overcome "black-out blindness"? Well, I wouldn't have guessed it either—but it's carrots and more carrots! This lowly vegetable contains vitamins that help our eyes tio adjust themselves quickly from light to darkness. Judging from reports of collisions and accidents, which occurred on the Pacific coast during black-outs,, it might behoove us to take the Britishers' suggestion seriously. Let's see how many interesting ways we can find to include carrots in our dally menus.
