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 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard May the Best Man Win In the primary fight for nominations for congress the republicans with four candidates are making a lively campaign. Congressman Fred Gilchrist is thought my many to have the advantage with a good chance for the nomination. However, he has three opponents, the leader perhaps being Frank Riley of Clarion, who though not widely known is making a vigorous campaign and a very good impression on the voters. Roy R. Hanna of Ruthven and Lloyd R. Smith of Forest City have more or less strong followings and it is thought that the Townsend Club votes will be divided between them. Mr. Hanna has for some years been regarded the head of the Townsend pension plan in this section. The Townsend plan is also favored by Mr. Smith it is said. This might split the Townsend strength, leaving the fight to Mr. Glichrist and Mr. Riley. But •when the primary fight is all over, the winner will have the fight of his life to defeat Edward Breen of Fort Dodge, who has no opponent for the democratic nomination. * * « There are four lively candidates for the United States senatorial nomination on the republican ticket, and the result is thought by many to be in doubt. Gov. Wilson, who is regarded as the leading candidate, is none too sure of being the victor, as he has two of the best men in the state in the persons of James I. Dolliver and Mark Thornburg to contend with. They are all able men and are leaving no stones unturned in the fight. The fourth candidates is G. Scott Davis of Des Moines, who is not regarded seriously. Senator Herring is being opposed by a Mr. Seeman cf Waterloo for the democrat senatorial nomination. However, it is a foregone conclusion that Senator Herring, with his .splendid record of six years in the senate, will be renominated. * * * The primary fight for governor, is one of the hot spots in the campaign. The republican candidates are Bourke B. Hickenlooper of Cedar Rapids, the present lieutenant governor, and Earl Miller, present secretary of state. Mr. Miller has been criticized by a number of the high ranking republicans, -in some cases perhaps unjustly. It is evident however that ncbody has any strings on him. Mr. Hickenlooper is recognized as one of the fine young statesmen of Iowa, and has all of the qualifications that the governor of the great state of Iowa should .have. The f;ict that he is an intimate of Attorney Don Hutchison of Algona, will certainly be in his favor in Kossuth county. In another column Mr. Hutchison has a letter in appreciation of his old friend. Ex-Governor Nels Kraschel is opposed for the 'democratic nomination for governor by A. E. Augustine of Oskaloosa and it is supposed that the race will be a close one. Mr. Augustine has been a leader in the state senate and stands high where he is known, but hicks a wide acquaintance. Kraschel has been criticized by many in his own party but sinue he has teamed up in politics with Senator Herring lately he is given a working chance for the democratic nomination. Paul Zerfaas of Algona, who la 6ut for the democratic nomination for state treasurer, Is fated Well qualified for that office and Kossuth county at least should give hint a solid vote. « * * The hottest fight on the county ticket Is between Joe Dooley and Mrs. Clara Walker for the democratic, nomination for county recorder. Joe has served In that -office for the .past ten years, and has conducted the office in first class shape, but there seems to be a feeling that he might reasonably step aside for an equally competent candidate. Mrs. Walker Is a daughter of Nicholas Reding, respected' pioneer farmer of southern Kossuth. She Is perfectly qualified for the office and has a strong following. Mrs. Walker who is the widow of a World War veteran, has two children to raise. She came within a few votes of winning the nomination from Mr. Dooley two years ago, and her many friends are hoping that she will make the grade this time. ^ ••',' ,»U" .s* y,-'¥?'%"':-, \.'" r- ;yf t <' * '*' "<"<•,'••?', V .VH .',',•/«•< ' ' Would Double President's Salary One of the silly movements of these stirring war times has been started by enlisted men at Key Field army and air base near Meridan, Mississippi. The boys, being full of patriotism and admiration for President Roosevelt, have organized a club with the purpose of giving the president a raise in salary. They are Inviting other army posts and civilians to join in the movement to double the president's salary in appreciation of "the tremendous job he is doing," They sa ythat the president has had no raise in 33 years, and have forwarded resolutions to congress. Of course the whole matter is ill advised and was born from the patriotic devotion to our great war time president. President Roosevelt, we are sure, would be embarrassed by the suggestion of doubling his salary at this time. President Roosevelt Is a weathy man, and the service he is performing for the country is and cannot be measured by dollars and cents. His present salary of $75,- OOo per year is ample and as we understand it he is on record favoring limiting all salaries for the duration to $25,000. This would give himself a reduction of $50,000 but would hit the business tycoons and movie folks hardest. President Roosevelts' suggestion of limiting big salaries is one of the most sensible he has made. It looks as though the boys have let their enthusiasm run away with good judgment. Good Business Outlook It is thought by seme of the big business men of the country that notwithstanding war restrictions the retail merchandise business will remain good during the war. E. C. Sams of New York, president of the J. C. Penny department store chain, in an interview in Des Moines the other day, said that while war restrictions would reduce the variety of merchandise in retail stores, he was sure that merchants would be able to meet the needs if not the desires of the public. The gasoline rationing may tend to decrease business in stores in some sections of the country, but tha twas yet to be demonstrated, he said. The Penney stores in the United States number 1,621 of which 68 are in Iowa, and has a total of about 40,000 employees. The firm sold a total of $377 million dollars worth of goods last year. So far this year the Penney stores have shown an increase in business of 40 per cent, partly perhaps due to higher prices. Opinions of Other Editors Majority for Federal Sales Tax Clarion Monitor: According to a poll by the American Institute of'Public Opinion the people of the United States favor a federal sales tax of two percent to help finance the war, but are against a tax of a higher percent. The recorded vote was 54 for and 46 against. From the expression of public 'opinion heard^ on the streets, the federal sales tax for production of money to help meet the cost of the war is in favor. Also the sentiment seems to extend to congress. It is very probable that we will have a government sales tax for war purposes. * * * Germans Can't "Take It" Humboldt Republican: The Axis forces have sent out peace feelers. They have proposed, to England that bcmbihg cease. Of course- the obje'ct is to stop English bombing of German munitions works so that Russia can be defeated. But the English know as we know that if a truce is secured that_it will last only until Germany feels strong enough to impose her will on her neighbors. Germany's leaders in this struggle are gangsters—nothing more. But they can not ensalve mankind. Even if Germany ecnquers the world (which she won't) the rights of humanity will rise again and tyranny will be overthrown. V * * * Fair Grounds Lease O. K-'d Eagle Grove Eagle: The details of the state leasing the Fair Grounds to the army are now a matter of public record. Army officials say that they had the fullest cooperation from the fair board and the governor, who is also a member of the board. When the war started, the governor wired the president, placing Iowa's entire resources behind the war effort. When the army wanted the Fair Grounds, the army got just what it asked for. Not at a $200,000 per year rental, but free for nothing!! Those who engaged in cheap and maudlin criticism of the procedure should promptly apologize. The army officers asked that details be kept quiet until the lease was signed. HICKENLOOPER'S FINE RECORD Editor Algona Upper DL>S Moines | — Dear Mr. Haggard: I am handing you herewith some information in reference to Bourke B. Hickenlooper, candidate for Governor. I have known Hickenlooper for almost twenty-three years. I first became acquainted with him at the Iowa Law School in the fall of 1919. He had just returned from France where he had served as an officer in the A. E. F. A further interesting fact is that his father, a farmer of Taylor county, Iowa, also served in France during the World "War. Prior to the war, Hickenlooper had attended Ames College, leaving there when the war broke out to enlist in the First Officers' Training School at Fort Snelling. •During his law school days he and I became well acquainted and when in 1922 he graduated from the Saw school we both went to Cedar Kapids to commence the practice of law. We obtained rooms at the "Y. M. C. A. and from that time until 1927 I roomed with him and naturally came to know him very well. Hickenlooper was first associated with the firm of Johnson and Donnelly. Later he opened his own office. He gradually gain- •cQ a place of prominence in the legal profession and soon came to '•be known as a skillful trial lawyer. In 1927 he was married to Verna "Bensch and Mr. and Mrs. Hicken- iooper are now the parents of two children, a, daughter, Jane, who is 13 years of age, and a son, David, ••who is seven years of age. Hickenloooer was elected to the state legislature from Linn county In- 1934 and served in the Forty- ai^th and Forty-seventh General .Assemblies. He was elected to his Jt*t&Wt «Sie* sf Ueuteoant-Gov- By "Don" Hutchison, Algona enior in 1038 and re-elected in 1!MO and has acted as president of the Senate during the Forty-eighth and Forty-ninth General Assemblies. The uhove is- just a briet outline of the main facts and, of course, does not give you a very good idea of the real characteristics of the man. I believe that we us voters are not only entitled to know, but should make it our purpose to become acquainted with and get ai much information as possible ,'ibout the candidates who are running for office and particularly is this true as regards the ma-i who is asking for the highest position in th<; S'.fi f n of Iowa. I think it is one of the weaknesses of our form of government that we voters so often go to tlie polls with little, if any, knowledge of the past history and the record of those asking for public office. I appreciate that it is often difficult to obtain information.^ I have presented these facts so that the voters of Kossuth county may know something about Hick- onlooper. Having known Hickenlooper as a student in the university and having been rather intimately acquainted with him during the first few years when he was in Cedar Rapids, I saturally have some definite ideas as to the kind of n - an he really is. He is known in his community as a man of the highest .'•landing. He is of Dutch and English ancestry. He possesses a stubborn honesty that has gained for him an enviable reputation. The record of his public life is without •i blemish and the same is true of his private life. Friendly and sympathetic, he is well liked by everyone who has ever known him, Republican or Democratic, alike. Undoubetdly he U a natural leader of men as Ills record in the House and Senate so clearly demonstrate. He is a speaker of outstanding ability. He believes in sound and business-like state administration. He is American to the core, demonstrated by the fact that he enlisted immediately upon the declaration of war in 1917, and he has since kept up his interest in rmlUn."y affairs. He knows well the problems and noedb of the boys who huve gone from our comunities to fight in this wur. He has the right age, temperament, judgment, and courage ta lead this, state through the present world war. A question always asked about a candidate for state office is how he it.mds among the people in his home community who know him bi'St. Upon his announcement as a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor his home town paper stated: "Cedar Rapids is Bourke Hickenloopers' home town and he rates A-l-A here. He heads a typical Iowa family of which all Iowa would be proud to have in the Governor's mansion. In these critical times when democracy itself is being challenged it seems that the very least tha,t we voters of Kossuth county can do is to make some intellgient inquiry and to inform ourselves regai-dins,' the men for whom we vote. Most asuredly before casting a votu for governor of the State of Iowa we should know something of the qualifications, the history, and the past record of the candidate. We owe it to ourselves and to our government and to the boys who are called to defend it. A vote for Hickenlooper will never require an apology—DON HUT- OHJSON.

And. he'says no 'one can get a word in edgewise anyway when I'm in the office. Can you beat the sidewalk on tho main drag for being a palce In which to practice your stance for proper golfing? Of all places to practice golf, but Joe Bestenlehn- er and Paul Wille Intend to take up golf this summer and so Joe bought one of those little scythes on a long handle and it serves the purpose of a mashie and he and Paul were getting in some good licks whamming away at ball right on the cement sidewalk and/Joe claims he got the scythe with a long handle because on account of it wasn't so hard on his back to whack the weeds at home and "Chris" Chrls- chilles came by and marveled at the mashie and said Joe ought to make nar easily this summer—whether wi the golf 'course or in his back .yard Chris didn't say. —o— I feel so sorry for the poor Riiy who weepingly declared he wasn t making enough to buy bonds and who five minutes earlier had told of losing four bucks In- a poker game the night before and he's tho type of guy with whom I get re- busted and If Hitler and the yel- I'.w-bellled japs win this war he won't have enough to even ante. And it's my notion that the bird who has dough with which to play poker can use at least half of it to buy defense stamps and after the war is over 'and he cashes in 'on- the savings he has invested in the stamps he can play his fool hear! off at a, poker table every night If he wants to. But' this weeping about being forced to buy bonds because he can'.t afford it because on account of he'd rather save his money playing poker, it's the bunk. —o— I've been doing iv bit of figuring and investigation and I find that there are 113 young ladies in Algona offices as clerks and stenographers and I'm hurrying up with the statement that they are all good looking and swell girls because on account 'of that's one thing I claim Algona has—beautiful women and lots of 'em and this goes for ALL of Algona's girls, no matter where they work—is that plain enough? Goodness, how easy a dumb-bell like me can get in hot water by writing something which was intended to take in all of-.the nulchritude in my home town. But I like to have the women talk about me and even to get kinder mad at me because then they are thinking of me and I'm an old man who gets a big kick out of being thought about by the women—I love 'em, all of 'em, some more'n others, but still love 'em. 4 Comes there a time when a'guy grows old enough so he doesn't MADAME DElORE ADVISES Station 117, ONE QUESTION FREE Km mat. iddrm, Urtfi tfitt and jsa.

AUNT LVCVS Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING One of the most versatile, adaptable and nourishing foods on the menu-planner's list is CHEESE. Combined with rice, spaghetti, macaroni, noodles or cream sauce, a great variety of appetizing meat substitutes may be prepared which are suitable for luncheon- or dinner. Since cheese contains most of the food essentials found in milk, it is important from the standpoint of nutrition, and because there is no waste in preparing it we should include it frequently in our menus. The versatility of cheese allows'us to fit it into any course, from soup to dessert. There are so many interesting recipes for cheese dishes aside from the old favorites that we all know and use —let's do a littlb browsing today and find some that are really different!

J. Dooley, County Recorder, who is finishing his tenth year and, is asking for two years more. He. stresses the fact thati.'he is conducting the office at a profit to the tax payer, which is a false and mis-,- leading statement. I take this opportunity to set the voting public right. The office of County Recorder cannot'shbw a* prof it by reason of its management. ' The^only income in that office comes from filing and recording of various public papers and- documents. The''fees for recording and f,iling are set by law "and:'the County Recorder cannot deviate from this fee.

Since Mr. Dooley took office, pearly ten years ago, he and his family have received in salaries TWENTY SIX THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED TWENTY FIVE AND 39-100 DOLLARS ($26,725.39), a tidy sum to go into one household. This office shouljj support two individual families rather than have it all go to one family, with very little to.other help. Will the Democrats permit this to continue? Ten years in this off ice should be sufficient. In Mr. Dooley's ads in the various county papers he is asking for re-election as County Recorder, it has always been my understanding the Primaries were fpr the nomination of Candidates, this is another trickey and inisleading statement, perhaps he has forgotten that the election is not until November. I am not waiting until the last paper cpmes put befpre,the Primary Election to publish this, if I misquote!}"any figures I will be glad to be corrected with proof of his statements. ;•'.• ..; EVERY TAX PAYER SHOULD GET A FINANCIAL STATEMENT OF THE COUNTY AT THE COUNTY AUDITOR'S OFFICE AND BE INFORMED; ;'ON SUCH FIGURES AS i AM QUOTING.
