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^ Is Union Labor Patriotic? In the controversy in congress on banning the 40-hour week for the duration in defense work plants, President Roosevelt, as usual, stands on the side of union labor and is against the 48-hour week. We think that there is something wrong with any abe-<bodied man who don't care to work eight hours for six days, especially when the work is so vital in the defense <of the country. The farmers of Iowa and all other states for that matter, work nearer sixteen hours and there is little complaint from them. This writer, from the time he started in as the "devil" in the old Algona Republican newspaper office, for many years worked a regular day of ten hours, and ion press days the hours were liable to be nearer fifteen. Now, past the age of retirement, a good eight hours is spent at the office. It is only of late years that over-time has been paid in towns like Algona., The ordinary man in defense work is as patriotic as any of the rest of us in x>ur opinion, but he belongs to the union, and has little to say, being under the control of the labor overlords like John L. Lewis, who with other labor racketeers, are in a position to enforce their demands for closed shops and ether things, which give them more power personally. It is said that John L. Lewis has amassed millions from the dues paid into the coffers of union labor. It was only a few years ago that the infamous "sit- down" strikes, instigated by Lewis, came near wrecking the auto industry in Detroit. This abrogation of all property rights was not rebuked by President Roosevelt, perhaps for political reasons. (Later, however, the president redeemed himself by •breaking with the labor racketeers and refusing to longer take orders from Lewis. It certainly is a poor time now when the country is in a fight fruits very existence and when the young men of the country are facing death every day on tho battlefields for $21 per month for the labor overlords to grasp for more money and power. However, this new draft, which registers every man up to 65 years of age may take care of the labor situation, as all men will then be under orders from the government and can be put on the fighting line if wanted. If Germany and Japan win this war there will be no labor unions and the laboring men will work for the small pittance they receive in those countries. There will be no more "closed shops" nor overtime. Now It seems that those congressmen down at Washington who just recently voted themselves a fat pension, are all heated up about profiteering in war Implements.. The naval affairs commit* tee Is investigating a firm, Jack & Heintz Co., at Cleveland, Ohio, who have Contracts with the government for the manufacture of various war goods mostly airplane parts, totalling over $50,000.000. It is said that they have a "patent on a plane starter, and are charging $500 or $600 for fche device whic:i should only cost about $50* The company has been aided financially by the government, and started up last year with only a. few thousand dollars capita' investment. Their big -profits ibrought the company into the High income tax brackets, • designed especially to take the big prdflts by the way of the income tax. To avoid this It seems that they paid fantastic sums in the way of salaries and bonuses to their high-salaried executives. Many other companies were shown to be giving bonuses and high salaries of several hundred thousand dollais where the regular salaries were not above $25,000. It was shown that one lady stenographer was given $39,000, her former salary being about $1,500. These enormous sums of money were being thrown away while little boys and girls in Iowa and all over the country were saving their dimes and pennies to buy defense stamps. The law for the confiscation by the government -of undue profits seems to be all right, but these war profiteers were evading it .by supposedly paying themselves immense salaries and bonuses. If this had happened in Germany the chances are that there would have been immediate work for the firing squad. Horse thieves used to ibe hung in the early days and those good old days may yet return to this country. Old Friends in Fight State Senator Augustine has, until lately, been the only candidate fcr the democratic nomination for governor. Now that Ex-Governor Kraschel has come out against Augustine there promises to be a lively contest. The men are understood to be good friends, but "everything is fair in love and war." Some thought that Augustine would withdraw, but he says that he is going out to clean Kraschel up. Augustine is a good man but it looks as though ha ia going up against the new Herring-Kraschel "machine", and may have his troubles ire the primary and bhen in the fall the winner will have another man-size fight on his hands, with Hickenlooper or some other go:d republican. Pearson for Treasurer C. W. Pearson, who is the present county treasurer, announces this week that he is a candidate for reelection to that office. Mr. Pearson and his wife came from Swea City some years ago and Mr. Pearson was appointed deputy treasurer by the late Harry Kruse. 'Later he managed the Brown suburban grocery on North Jones street. Ho is serving his first term as county treasurer and has a fine record in that office, and is asking for nomination on the republican ticket. It seems to be the general opinion that he will not be opposed and that he will be given the usual second term. Opinions of Other Editors The Labor Profiteer Along with the hubbub over the profiteer!!^ by manufacturers of war materials, congressmen'.-! pensions and overtime pay for union labor, comrs a good story from Oakland, California, where two caulkers on naval craft work charged $160 each for eight hours work on a naval auxiliary. The two men were paid $28 each which would seems tio us ordinary dubs to be a fortune. They later filed claims for the $160 and figured it out that according to union regulations they were entitled to overtime which made the eight hours work actually put dn amount to 64 hours. Then after rolling up their sleeves and moistening their pencil points they found that at $2.50 per hour each had the tidy little fortune of $160.00 coming from the government. This gave them $20 an hour for the actual eight hours of work. Talk about war profiteering, •"you haven't seen nothin' yet!" Throw Out Incompetents Clarion Monitor: This is a pioor time ot retain incompetents in office just because they are in office. Under the guise of patriotism we can be asked to endorse everything that is done. If that rule had been followed in Europe England would have kept her Neville Chamberlain who tried to stop Hitler with bribes. •Instead let's get behind things and push.i Let s live economcally, spend wisely and work heroically. Also let us throw out incompetent leaders just as we did in Hawaii. We must have successful effort in every line—high and low. Giving the Boys Jobs Northwocd Anchor: Never until the New Deal came along did any national administration, Republican or Democratic, consider a federal press bureau necessary. But as jobs ran out in the regular .'bureaus, camnDittete organizations,' congressional side products and other brain-trust set-ups, places had to be found for supporters and the "publicity branch" was formulated. Now in war-time, with people taxed to a painful and almost confiscatory point, an annual payroll of twenty-seven million, 500,000 thousand dollars is going for press agenr try, much of the product 'of which goes into waste baskets. The paper bill alone last year was $2,- 51f>,858 and the mailing, free of postage, cost almost $50,000,000. It is not unpatriotic to say that much of the "information" is political propaganda, pure and simple. "Where does the money go?" many ask. Plenty of it goes into the "information' distribution, as the above figures show. Sac Sun: No matter what the "big shots" say about it, a 40-hour week is far too short for most labor and maybe for all labor. Imagine a farmer trying to get by on a 40-hour week; he would never get his crop in, nor could he take care of it after he had it in. And should he adhere to the standard iind hire extra help and pay time and a half overtime, he would have not enough when he sold his products to pay the cost. Curing an emergency such as now exists, there hi no need to stay on a 40-hour week and taking into consideration the high wages being paid by the defense industries, time and a half overtime and double pay for Sundays should be out of the question. Wake Up America, It's Late! (An editorial from the Scripp-Howard newspapers) The nation needs to awaken to the full gravity of the peril that confronts it. It needs to appreciate how badly we have been defeated in three m-ntha of war. It needs to understand that it is possible for the United Nations and the United States to lose this war and suffer the fate of France—and that this possibility may become a probability if the present tide does not change. It needs to realize that there is grave ciiance of the Japanese pushing through India and the \ Germans driving through the Near East, to join ^ their armies and resources in an almost unbeatable combination. It needs to get away, once and for all, from the comforting feeling that while we may lose -it the start we are bound to win in the end. * * * Only when fully aware of existing perils will the United States do its utmost. Pray God that awareness will not come too late, as it did m France! Production Director Donald Nelson appeals for vastly increased industrial output on a .24-hour, seven-day basis—168 hours a week. Maximum production, in short! Can we get it? Not on the present basis—not under the psychology of recent years. Not until we quit thinking in terms of less • work for more money. (Not while there is greater concern about overtime pay than overtime production. Not while farmer politicians are more interested in ihigher prices than raising more essentials. Not while government bureaus—created to meetl depr«(ssion emergejjcy that Is ended— continue to grab for themselves money needed fnr o n«v>n irfcftllta. INOT WHILE AN ARMY OF FEDE5RAL -PRESS AGENTS CLAMOR TO PROMOTE ANDPERPETRATE ACTIVITIES THAT HAVE NO PRESENT NEED OR VALUE. Not while congressmen try to put over useless canals and river schemes and take up ttoe * " " officials clamoring tor factories while WS>\ despite * shortage of labor, seeks to carry on projects which it doesn't have the men to perform or the need for performing. Not while CCC and NYA stretch greedy hands for funds to pamper young men who ought to be in the armed forces or the war plants. Not while strikes hamper war production, despite a solemn promise that they would stop. Not while the life-and-death need for uninterrupted production is used as a weapon to put over the closed shop. Not while double time is demanded for Sunday work which is only part of a 40-hour week. Not while a man can't be employed on an army project or in a war plant until he pays $20 to $50 or more to a labor racketeer. Not while criminal gangs control employment and allocation of men to work on the Normandie and the other ships along New York's vast waterfront. Not while fifth columnists are pampered and enemy aliens move freely in defense areas. Not while the grim job of preparing our home communities against air raids and sabotage is gummed up with a lot high-falutin', boon-doggling, social-service activity. NOT WHILE PRESSURE BLOCS CLAMOR FOR HIGHER BENEFITS, BOUNTIES AND PENSIONS. * * * We will not get maximum production, in short, unless, first, we fully realize our awful peril; and second, get over the gimmes of recent years. Gimme shorter hours, gimme higher wages, gimmee bigger profits, gimme more rnpre overtime, gimme less work, gimme more pensions, gimmee great crop benefits, gimme mpre appropriations and patronage, gimme plants for my congressional district, gimme fees and dues to work for Uncle Sam, gimme ham W eggs, gimme share-the-wealth, gimme $30 every Thursday. France had the gimmes, too—had them until the Germans were close to Paris. Then, everybody went frantically to work—too late.

MoMahon Is another of the town's lawyers who smokes a pipe and he sure believes in strength, toe, because on account of the pipe was al bandaged up pretty and Gene says he's trained it to keep Its place and it doesn't hop all over the place when he lays it down. But in the summer time he has to keep the windows "shut to keep his p.'pe from jumping out. —o— A)n<l I've found anothep* Dane (gosh, there's a lot of 'em around here) and this Is A. V. Larson and he used to live In Plunj Creek and that township has sure turned .out a lot of prominent men and A. V. says he can sing, but Til have to hear him first because on account of I don't know any Danes yet around here who can "sing worth sour apples and that includes 'mo, except I'm good on the bass. And now they've started ah opposition gang to the Gulpers association and it's called the,,Swooper, Swopper, Swirper Mob and Bud Zender says they use rubber gloves when they dunk and Carroll Johnson Is the dictator of the crowd but he's about to be dethroned by Carl Huase because on account of Carl is a salesman and gets a lot of previews over his territory on how coffee is gulped or swooped or swapped or swlrped and Eddie DeLano and Everett Anderson are running a close second to being the dictator and I'm definitely opposed to the SSS Mob ibecause on account of it is going to hurt the membership In the Gulpers and "Trick" Wright; a milk drinker, says he's about to organize a milk sipping club and there'll be no nipples, and he says you don't use either cream or sugar and that's a saving atra "Woody" Woodward, a real gulper, who doesn't use only a pinch of sugar in his coffee more for the exercise of putting it in than for sweetening it, says maybe the milk sipping club should be encouraged. Fred Gelgel says he doesn't gulp coffee 'but .Instead 'he buys a candy bar and he's trying to put on weight and which gulping doesn't do no how but candy bars do and I pro- pcse to get up a pill with vitamins in it which can be put in the coffee and it will put on fat or take off fat and solve a lot of problems on the part of the gulpers who aren't satisfied with their rotundity having too much or too little and Fritz Pierce is 'for that and so is John Kohlhaas because on account of they wouldn't mind an extra pound or two for rotundity and maybe Geigel; will see the light and buy a pill instead of & candy bar. Met Mike Heiderscheidt (gee. that's a tough one for a dumb bell like me to spell) of West Bend and talk about big guys, he is a big man and I look .like half of a half pint standing alongside of him and he's the assessor of Garfield township and he gets the job done afrd I'm wishing now I could get some vita mlns which would put a bit more size to -my flesh and bones and Mike and I talk the same language on a lot of things and It ain't Dane btther. —o— Doggone It I gave the wrong date last week when- I'm to do my -fiddling at Wesley, It's on the 10th of April, Instead of the 9th. There's a date you should write on your hat band and don't forget it. Big doings in Wesley that night with me fiddling- there. And I find that Ed Capestus also is a fiddler, havn't heard him fiddle but he's got a fiddle and he must be pretty good 'because on account of somebody told me they used to pay Ed for fiddling some years ago. Well, they used to 'pay me for fiddling, too, but I don't consider, that It was money -well spent because on account of maybe my fiddling wasn't so hot. Joe Lynch Is learning the "Dutch" gulping game and he loves It and gives the gapers, his telephone number In the hopes of getting ^ven, though he says one cup of coffee satisfies an otherwise controlled appetite for a week at a time and Dr. Shlerk and John Haggard and an Insurance man from Ftort Dodge all gave of -their time and talents to give Joe his first lesson, but what's 40c to a gulper? John Haggard says he can hold three billiard balls in a closed flat and even Gene Hutchins would never guess what he had in this hand which is developing the "Dutch" game to » point of artistic efficiency. —o— Had my hair cut again! SceniH Kossuth county grows lots of hair like it does corn and beef and this time "Hank" Furst operated on my locks and I generally make the rounds, go to a different barber shop time so's I get acquainted with the tonsorial artists and they're all good ones, and "Hank" suggested I should have the dandruff washed out of my -hair and which I have a lot of and I let it grow through the winter months because it helps keep the chill out of my noodle and -in the summer time I have it washed out but it ain't summer yet so "Hank" didn't get the job. Little "Bill" Barry is kinder mad at me because on account of he says I should do my bowling practicing on the alleys and which I should, but seems as though always there's someone else using 'em when I want to practice so I -borrow th-> Mrs.' flat iron and it's just the right weight and I use the regular bowling stance and slide that iron over the kitchen floor and I'll be bowling my 320 shortly but Bill says it ain't fair to the other guys who practice on the alley which I can't help because on account of I'm a AVNT LUCY'S Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING With spring house-cleaning and sewing soon to be added to our already crowded schedules, perhaps a few short cuts and time-savers will be appreciated today. Conserving time and energy is very important to toome-makers at any time, but now that so many are engaged in outside services, knitting, and all the other duties that the war has given us—extra time and a little left-over energy are downright precious.
