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 Al Capone Was a Piker In order to escape paying the lawful excess profits tax the Lincoln Electric Co. of Cleveland, Ohio, has paid over five million dollars in bonuses and big salaries to its officers and employees. This was shown before the House Naval Investigating committee in a hearing last week. The infamous gangster Al Capone was given a sentence of twenty years for endeavoring to escape paying income tax on the enoumous profits, of his nation-wide bootleg ring. So far as we are concerned we would be glad to see the officials of this company given a twenty year sentence at Alcatraz or any of the penitentiaries of the country. Their crime is more serious during these days when the nation is fighting for its very life and most 'of the poor people of the country are living on restricted rations and saving the very last cent to help pay for the war. Besides these bonuses the government investigator showed that during the period they had set up a million dollar trust fund. The investigator found that the extra compensations last year ranged up to $50,000 for some officials. 'Last year's employes in the $1,800 to $2,600 class received bonuses ranging from $3,000 to $5,000. Department heads and officers, whose salaries ranged from $3,200 to $12,500 were given bonuses ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. C. F. Taylor, vice president of the company, testified that he had begun his career in 1916 at $60 per month and said that in the year 1941 besides his salary of $12,450 and his bonus of $40,000, he and his wife had received $75,950 in dividends on stock they owned in the company. This made a nice "take" of $128.450.00 for the year. He maintained in justification that his system of bonuses had saved the government over $35,000,000 through increased worker efficiency and reduced costs. He said that the bonus scheme was inaugurated with no thought of beating the company • excess profits tax. He said that he had conceived the idea of "stimulating" cooperation after hearing President Roosevelt's speech on the "abundant life" in 1933, during the time that the brain trust of college boys were trying their experiments with gov- •ernmcnt money. This company has been handling ^government contracts for welding equipment, and all of these fat bonuses came directly from the pockets of the overburdened taxpayers. The company has been accused of evading clcse to $5,000,000 in taxes. We fail to remember the exact amount it was claimed that Al Capone beat the government out of in income taxes, No Tires, No Gas, Nor Nothin' Now they tell us that there will be no more rubber tiros avaiable to the public for at least two or three years. Even though synthetic rubber is a success the general public will not be able to secure any tor two or three years on account of war needs. In the meantime there is talk that a new auto tire is being investigated which will contain no rubber, but would be able to carry passengers at the rate of thirty miles an hour without discomfort. So, it seems the future carries nothing but hardship for the auto- ists, at least to those who sneer at a speed less than sixty miles an hour. And then again if the new tires carry us even thirty miles an hour, how about the gas to run them with? It is now proposed to limit the sale of gas in every state in the Uniorr, starting July first. The largest amount any civilian would be allowed to buy would be three gallons per week, which would hardly get business men to their places of business. A great howl is going up from those who live in the great oil producing states or" Oklahoma, Texas, California and other states, where there are oceans of oil at their very doors. The war production board is kept busy explaining that the rationing of gasoline so far as these people are concerned, is to save tire wear and not on account of any shortage of gas. However, most everybody cheerfully accepts the inconveniences and hardships of these war times. If we cannot win the war tires, money or anything else will mean nothing to as, ', The greatest labor racketeer of all time, John L. Lewis, has lately been in a fight with PhlHp Murray, who is the present head of the C. 1. O. with a salary of nothing flat, but who Is the vice president at the same time of the United Mine Workers, of which Lewis Is the president, wltft a fat salary. The only salary received by Murray Is $18,000 per year from the United Mine Workers job. It seems that Mr. Lewis has the power to oust Mr, Murray from the salaried position, and is quite liable to do so It is thought. But last week the friends of Mr. Murray elected him president of the newly-organized United Steel Worker's Union at a salary of $20,000 per year. II. w'ill be remembered that when John L. Lewis bolted Roosevelt in the last election because the president refused to take orders from hlnr,'as he had been doing, that Lewis campaigned for Wlllkie. In this same campaign Mr. Murray supported the president as he has since in his conduct of the war. This has irked the great labor boss, and the friendship between Lewis and Murray hns been gradually waning until now there is an open break. We think that Mr. Murray is an honest and competent labor leader and that the break with Lesvis can do him no harm, certainly not with the public. Lewis hns showed many signs of late that he is losing his power with union labor, who has been behind him for many years. If he were entirely deposed it .would mean a great advance for union labor in the eyes of the public. Opinions of Other Editors Browder Release O. K. Eagle Grove Eagle: There is no point in criticizing the president for freeing Earl Browder, communist leader. Browder served more than the usual amount of time for forgery in connection with passports. Prolonging his sentence would be more in the line of revenge than protection of society or punishment for the crime committed. Browder was arrested, tried and convicted, the same as any other lawbreaker. He served a portion.of his heavier than ordinary sentence. Maybe he has learned something; we doubt that, but It could be. Anyway, give him his chance. If he abuses it and the government has to give him further attention, then give him the limit and let him stay in the penitentiary for the entire time of his sentence. But this is no time for revenge and informed public opinion will approve the president's action in the Browder pardon incident. * * * Labor Loses if Hitler Wins Webster City Freeman: No class in the United States is more directly interested in the defeat of Hitler than those who work f«r wages. Hitler has destroyed all labor unions in the countries he dominates and if he wins this war the workers of this country will fare no better. According to a dispatch from Vichy, the German military command in France has issued a sweeping decree taking to itself powers to increase working hours in French enterprises and order employers to report immediately the number and categories of workmen made available for other work as a result of longer hours. A large portion of French industry has been working a 40-hour week but hereafter they will have to work longer hours that Hitter's war machine might be better served. It is pretty tough when wage earners have to take orders from a foreigner but they have to do that in all the countries dominated by the Axis powers. * * * War Grafters Condemned Virginia (Minn.) Enterprise: America has never faced more ominous, darker days. They are so serious in their portent that the people would only be rising to the challenge of the hour if they were to command the national government to mend its ways, and to threaten with terrific vote reprisals any members of Congress who continue to scheme and advocate pap and pabulum for certain segments of the population. If somehow or other the mounting wrath of the people and we do hope and pray that it is a mounting and determined wrath—could be registered with each and every member .of Congress and with the national administration,'bureaucrats and boondogglers would be driven off the public payrolls by the thousands, leadership of the people and for the people would be restored, and victory would be in sight. So dark are the days and so grave the situation that the electorate would oe justified in driving to cover and out of office every person not 100 per cent for a maximum and exclusive war effort, and 100 per cent against continuing the vagaries of New Dealism, boondoggling, leaf-raking and thievery. * * * Breda News: With more cyclists on open roads and highways there may arise a need. for traffic laws to cover in order to avoid confusion and peril. The threatening avalanche of these "bikes" may cause a new transportation problem. If any of you have ever been where workers in factories for the most part ride bicycles, you will understand the need for some special thinking on this line. With narrow streets and crowded highways we might need some disciplining along the line to make the danger less. Canada has been using bicycles in many of her factories and the out-pouring of the workers during the rush hour is something to see! We may have to take up this problem with our own motorists and eventually adjust rules for cyclists to obey. * * * Humboldt Republican: For two weeks communications have reached this office from one Elliott E. Simpson, who claims to be-an independent rubber dealer in New York, stating that there is a minimum of 1,200,000 tons of crude rubber in the Western Hemisphere in mature trees, available to the United States at reasonable prices—less than fifty cents a pound. Mr. Simpson declares that the government people do not know what they are talking about: when they speak of so serious a shortage of crude rubber. Also he clamis to have a process for revitalizing scrap rubber that the government is welcome to, and which our rubber committee does not care to handle. Mr. Simpson's report are so directly in conflict with the statements given out by the administration that it is extremely confusing. It would be nice to know the truth. * • • Webster City Freeman: A Washington special said "President Roosevelt declared that the government would do everything it could to prevent what he termed unwarranted pay increases by private plants." The Freeman-Journal doesn't believe the government will attempt to do anything of the kind. If it does it can prevent unwarranted increases in pay. All it has to do is freeze the price of wages along with 'other prices. Canada did that months ago, but the Canadian government doesn't let union leaders dictate to it in such matters. CORN ALCOHOL IN MIDDLE WEST Frank Jaqua in Clarion Senator Gillette has been fighting for corn alcohol plants for the middle west. Some time ago it was announced that such a plant might be established at Fort Dodge. Later it was announced by administration representatives that no corn alcohol plants would be located in the middle west which ia the corn belt of the United States. This is confusing to the average American. Why refuse to refine grain where it is grown? Senator Gillette called attention to the fact that the alcohol extracted is only a portion of the corn consumed. The rich protein content is poured down the sewers to waste, and it amounts to about seventeen pounds to the bushel of grain, and that protein that is thrown away could be used to increase the beef and pork that the United States needs for jts allies in the world struggle. Also the haul between Iowa and Massachusetts occupies transportation space that already is such a bottleneck in our national production. The creation of corn alcohol in the middle west where the corn is grown has been blocked by some national force for many years. John H. Mitchell of Fort Podge, while representing Webster county in the state legislature, promoted a bill to establish corn alcohol plants m Jowa. Mr. Mitchell's experience is interesting. He was simply blocked off the political highway and his bill went into the discard. That was accomplished while the state of Iowa as a whole favored the establishment of corn alcohol plants here. Later Fred C. Lovrein' formerly of Humboldt, spent several weary years trying to promote corn alcohol production in Iowa. Corn alcohol was purchased and used by the auto owners of northwest Iowa and proved beneficial though not economical to transportation. His efforts were in vain. And then J. F. Miller, Humboldt county's present representative in the lower house of the legislature, introduced such a bill in the legislature and he also went into the discard. His bill was held in a committee and refused a vote while it had a majority in bpth houses of the legislature. Very evidently there is some mysterious and invisible force bucking the production of corn alcohol in the corn belt. State and national moves have all met with unsurmountable opposition. It is apparent now that they have the state and national legislative bodies under control. Corn alcohol plants will never be established in the middle west until the states do it, or the people raise such a rumpus that their legislators will be afraid to hold back any longer. RAVINGS by REESE A Littlt of This - A Little of That -Not Much of Anything Here I thought It was againat the law to wear a straw hat before the first of June. I have a heck of a time getting f one after the first of June. And here comes R. E. Ingham and J. C. Wlmmer Friday morning, and It wasn't the first of June yet and they ea6h had on a straw hat ami I was at first Inclined to take off their hats and have a truck run over 'em (the hats I mean) and then I thought better of "it because on account cf I don't know the boys too good and they might not have liked to have their hats smashed, but just the same they were rushing the season a couple of days because it wasn't June first for two more days. I'm wearing my 1939 straw now but it's after Jurre 1st and within the law. And here ctfmes Joe Dooley on Friday and he's got a straw hat. And It's a new one, too. Doggone! —o— And the {other day Dell Clopton said I was a plutocrat and I'm looking up that word and if it's what I think it is I may hava to beat up on Dell and Dr. Cretzmeyer called me a name once and after I found out what It was'I didn't have to beat up on him and Dell says he knows what plutocrat means and he didn't think I was so dumb and which I ain't only about big 1.26 words, I have to look 'em up. One time a guy called me a dumkopf and I thought it meant I was a general or something and when I found out what dumkopf stood for A had a notion to sue him but a lawyer said you couldn't sue a guy for telling the truth. Doggone! —o— I was up to Fenton Thursday evening and here were the town's most prominent business men moving the band stand and fixing up a lot and J. A. G. Smith, he's the banker, had a rake in both hands and I'll bet he's got calluses now and Fred Mortensen was showing 'em how to shovel gravel and Alex Peterson was the foreman on the job because on account of he's learned how to talk English now and Fred Newel was hanging onto a fork like somebody might take it away from him but he told me he knew how to use it and I wanted to buy a stamp and that gave Jake Schwartz an excuse to resign from the hard work and Albert Mitchell stood on the sidelines and saw that the job was done right and I owed him a buck a'nd I paid him and now I'm busted and if Clarence Theesfield had been there then that would have been something and "Jess" (to me) Glaus, marshal, was going to put me in jail but I wouldn't take my glasses off and so he didn't try it. —o— Met the nicest lady the other day and she'is from Titonka, land a former newspaper woman which of course makes it a good reason why she's nice and it was Mrs. Lee O. Wolfe and her husband and she at one time presided over the destinies of the Titonka Topic and Mrs. Wolfe treated me just like I was a regular newspaper man and not just a dub which lots of folks take me to be and which I ain't always as dubbish as they think I am but being a married man I have to be sort of Milquetoasty at times so to speak like I didn't have a mind of my own and which maybe I ain't but Mrs. Wolfe said Bill and I were MADAME DElORE ADVISES ONE QUESTION FREE Sim Hint, iddiBit, blrtlilrti and jiir.

For days no* I've been thrilled and gee, ain't it nice to have somebody say a kind word to a guy once in a while? —o— Bud Zender has made up his mind to organize a twlrper's club in opposition to the Gulpers and he says everybody in the Twlrpei- Block (that's from Dcdge street to Harlan street on, the Main Drag oh the west side of the street) Is ready to .jslgn up t and which tin-eludes "Woody" and Roy 'BJustr'om and Bill Giossi and Kay Setchell, all of 'em good conscientious Gulpers and not a "saucer twirper" among 'em. Since Bud has gone to smoking a pipe I Just don't seem to be able to do anything with him. Dr. Amunson suggests a Gulper membership drive to offset this Twirper movement. Now, there's an Ideal John Byson came In the office on Thursday and he and I lined up in front of Bill Haggard and we were goig to sing a Dane tune for Bill and John admitted he couldn't sing so good unless he was three sheets in the wind whatever that Is, and so we didn't sing and maybe we should both get three sheets In the wind whatever that is. and John says the direction of the wind don't have a thing to do with the sheets they just sort of flop in the wind and that's how come a guy gets three sheets in the wind and I'm all confused aibout it and I've heard and seen a lot of guys sing without three sheets, even without on? sheet, and maybe If I got three sheets in the wind I could sing better Dane, too. I'm going to have a look at this three sheets in tho wind busniess and see if John knows what he's talking about. There ought to be a law. Wednesday Ed Capesius, city, drove to Whlttehiore and attended the wedding of his nephew, Dr. E. Capesius. Their cars were parked side by side in front of the church and the wedding pranksters tied a half ton of tin cans to Ed's car and applied plenty soap signs on the windows and attached a lot of colored ribbon and set out that "We're Newly Married." And it' was tho wrong Ed. It was the car of our Algona Ed and not the car of the Ed who was being married and so the Algona Ed Capesius spent an hour scraping the soap off the windows and untying the ribbon and he's made up his mind there Should be a law against decorating the cars of newlyweds. —o— 1 get up before breakfast every morning and it was 4 minutes to 8 Friday morning and on the main drag there was the draft board having a meeting and I continued on up to the court house and there was the Board of Supervisors having a session on the court house lawn and 1 {Wide a Speeoh.

Murtagh came along and he said' he wasn't Interested In dots over any "I" but it did make a difference where the dot was In figures, for instance 1.01 and 101. the dot made a whale of •a difference and so Herman left the dot over the capital "I". But to me. the best printer In Kossuth county, that window sign is ruined.* And I was at Bancroft Wednesday night to a wedding dance for friends of Dr. and Mrs. E. Capesius and I had a swell time considering my age (I was the oldest guy there) and Mike Besch and Ray Kyhl of Fenton wer^ there and Ray paid me a .buck and a half for the Upper Des Monies and here's hoping his health remains good after reading my bunk and Harry Haase and Mike Mergen and Nick Reding and Chas. Bormann (the only-Bormann in Whittemore township), were there, too, and they all read the Upper Des Moines and they had as much fun as I had and they are just young guys alongside of me and we'would have hud Harold Clark, editor of the Bancroft Register, with us but he didn't answer the phone and the cop up at Bancroft is a swell-guy and was so patient •about it all.

June, the month of weddings and graduations, which must be celebrated, even if the refreshments have to be planned on a war-time basis. Where there is youth there must be gayety, and in spite of overstrained budgets, sugar rationing, and all of the other restrictions the pa=>t months have brought us—let's remember that it is the spirit of the occasion which is really important and as far as the food is concerned, we'll do the best we rfan. Cakes, for Instance, can be just as delicious and festive looking as ever if we put a little more ingenuity into our planning Salad greens and vegetables are always plentiful i.i June, and frozen desserts can look and taste a \ot more expensive than they really are.

Cheese Ribbon Sandwiches Cut the crust from a small loaf of sandwich bread and cut four slices lengthwise, half an inch thick. Spread first slice with butter and white cream cheese. Place on .this very narrow strips of green pepper, lengthwise, about % Inches apart. Then add the next slice of bread, which has been spread with butter and cheese on both sides, and arrange strips of plmien- to on this, in the same manner. Treat the third slice as the second, using green pepper again. The fourth slice should have butter and cheese spread on one side only. Place this slice on the others, butter and cheese side down. Press all four slices together and cut in slices as you would a loaf of bread, then cut crosswise to make a daintier size. Cocoanut fttacaroomj 1 whites of eggs 1 cup sugar 4 cups corn flakes Pinch of salt I cup cocoanut Mix all ingredients and add to egg whites, which have been beaten very stiff.
