Algotfft, toWft, 9 North Dodge Street. J. W. HAGGARD & R. B. WALLER* Publishers Entered as Second Class Matter at the' Postofflce at Algona, Iowa, under act of Congress of March 3,1879 Issued Weekly / NATIONAL €DITORIAL^ USOGATION Second Place, General Excellence, Iowa Press, 1940 First Place Award Winner, 1933, Iowa's Most Outstanding Weekly, Judged by State University of Iowa fairs was to conserve tires, but It was pointed out that if this idea was to be followed otit the big league baseball games which draw hundreds of thousands of people, many of whom drive hundreds of miles to the games, had not been requested to discontinue their games. However, a number of the big state fairs usually attended by hundreds of thousands of people, have now agreed to discontinue their fairs for the duration. Many of the county fairs had already arranged for their premium lists and in some cases they were printed before the request was made. These would of cOurse be of no value in case the fair was discontinued. The way the matter now stands It is likely those county fairs will be exempted from the request, which at no time was considered an order, In'the case of the Kossuth county fair, it will go on as usual as we understand it. The Iowa State (Fair, however, will be closed for the duration of the war.

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 Parole Convicte for War •For some time the question p of paroling the prisoners in the prisons of the United States and enlisting them in the armed forces of the country has been debated. It has been urged that prisoners who will be eligible for parole in the next two or thrge years should be paroled now and place in fighting units where they could be 'of service to their country whose laws they had broken, thus atoning for' their wrong-doing at the same time. The other day the Gallup people instituted a nation-wide poll on the question and it was disclosed that 66 percent of those contacted were in favor of the plan, to 21 percent against, 6 percent qualified answers and 7 of no opinion. This means practically three-fourths of those voting approved of the idea. Personally we think that the idea Is a good one and should be adopted. It seems to us that no good reason could be advanced against It. There are at present approximately 160.000 males in the state and federal prisons of the United States. RAVIHOS by R££S£ A Llttlt of Tlilt» A Littlt of That Not Much of Anything EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard How Long Will the Slaughter Last A good many people predict that the present world war will last until 1944. and when this woo written it certainly seemed that the end was not in sight. Duane Dewel, who has recently returned from a national meeting of Kiwanians at Cleveland, Ohio, says that the present situation was regarded as rather gloomy, and all expected a long war. The delegates attending the national meeting were among the best men from all sections of the United States and their opinion should have some weight. However, it don't seem possible that the killing could continue, at least at the present rate, for any great length of time. It is claimed that the Germans engaged in the war with Russia after one year of war have lost on that front alone ten million men in killed, wounded and taken prisoner. The Russians report losses of 4,500,000. Of the total German casualties over 3.500,000 were killed it is claimed. The announcement claims that the Germans have lost over 20,000 aircraft and the Russians 9.000. In the matter of tanks the Nazis have lost 24,000 and the Russians 15,000. The Germans have admitted losing 1,500,000 in killed, wounded and missing, but said that the Russian losses totalled 10.000,000 in killed, wounded or captured. Then add to these bloody figures the hundred thousands who have been killed on other fronts, besides the many hundred thousands who have been ruthlessly murdered by Hitler and his butchers in Czechoslovakia, the Jews and the Poles who have beerr systematically driven from their homes and slaughtered, men, women and children, and the sum total jnust be appalling. It would seem to be questionable that a twar could continue for any groat length of time when /so many millions of the best young men of all nations are being slaughtered. Two years more of ihis war it would seem would leave the world bankrupt and without men or guns to keep up the maniacal destruction started by the crazy house painter, Hitler. The Navy's Tremendous Task . Never before in American History has the U. S. Navy been called upon to do such a tremendous job as it faces today. The Navy has and probably will, in cooperation with Air Power of both Army and Navy forces, bear the brunt of the task for some time. First of all, the Navy is both the first offensive and the first defensive force that will come in contact'with any of our several foes. The Navy has to convoy men and supplies of the land forces to any given point. The Navy has to see that those lines of supply are kept open at all costs. The Navy has to back up all offensive efforts anywhere, and is the backbone of all defensive plans of the Nation. While it is true that this War has changed many ideas about fighting and the types of weapons and ships with which .to fight, one fact does remain regardless of those changes. That is the fact thai THE NAVY MUST HAVE MEN. A fighting force of Navy men totaling 1,000,000 sons of America is needed, and soon. That is about twice the present enlisted personnel of the Navy. The time is past for men to ask "how can I' help "; the time is definitely here for men to act, if they are at all physically able to do anything. They can serve their country, now, by joining the Navy. Under the new bill for dependents, even men with wives and families can fight for their country, and be sure that the loved ones at home are receiving enough to live on, , , , ,. ,, Unless the United States wins this war no man of wealth, no man of the soil, no man'of labor will live to see the day when the life he has known and believed in comes to pass again. The home of every one of us is at stake, right now. The United Nations have had some bad news, these past few weeks. There is only one thing to do. America must muster all of its available manpower, and NOW. The United States Navy is calling for men. How many will respond to that appeal? The Navy Recruiting Stations in Iowa are anxious to take men in. Let's have the men of Iowa set an example for the other 47 states. Opinions of Other Editors Too Much Publicity v ' 'At last it seems that the war publicity matter and its scandalous expenditures for publicity agents many of whom merely send out information already duplicated, is to be remedied. Emer Davis, an experienced and efficient newspaper man, is to have charge of all publicity with full power to discontinue hundreds of the useless and duplicating bureaus, apparently created to give deserving New Dealers jobs. There are over three hundred news bureaus at present it is said, and the total cost to produce this stuff, most of which goes into the waste basket, is between $27,000.000 and $28,000,000. It is thought by many publicity experts that the same if not better co-ordinated publicity could b'J had with an appropriation of half a million dollars. No inconsiderable part of the present publicity sent cut is regarded by experienced newspaper men as downright .silly and is held in contempt in most newspaper offices where it is supposed to be reproduced. This publicity stuff is a fair sample of New Deal profligacy with its hundreds of alphabetical bureaus. It is to be hoped tnat things in the publicity section will now take a turn for the better. The Fair Closing Request Last week when Director Eastman of the office of defense transportation sent out a request for the closing of state and county fairs all over the country a strong protest was made by many of the smaller fairs. The idea' of the closing of the Plenty of Sugar. Humboldt Independent: Uncle Sam has so much sugar that he don't know what to do with it. The warehouses on both coasts are jammed to the ceilings and storage capacity is Strained to the limit. But the freighters that carry war material and troops to Hawaii continue to come back jammed to the gunwales with sugar that has to be stored. (Freighters too small to tempt the submarines continue to unload at Atlantic ports from Cuba and Puerto Rico and the wharves there are loaded to the tops with sugar. Also the Louisiana and other southern sections crops promise to be the best in years, all crying for an outlet. Some of the moguls in charge of the situation reason that the crop should be thrown on the market and permit the people to can and store away and lay in a year's supply, and others' ponder deeply and predict that maybe, somehow and somewhere there may be a lack of sugar next year, and see what a grand thing it will be if we have warehouses bursting with sugar when the shortage arrives. The common sense view point seems to be that our sugar wants are supplied on this continent. It is true that we import some sugar from the Philippines but the amount is insignificant. The sugar production areas of our own southland, Mexico and Cuba as well as Puerto Rico will never be taken from us. With a sugar shortage in view these sections can step up their production materially. * * » Tutt, Tutt, Don't Be Harsh with Harlan (Webster City Freeman: The Story City Herald doesn't think Harian Miller is a good political prophet. It says: "Harlan Miller, he of the Des Moines Register Coffee Pot, is no doubt wearing a dunce cap and sitting in some handy corner of his office. Trying to tell us that Iowa voters were going to ditch some of their congressmen for voting against the fortification of Guam! They were all renominated Monday. As a prophet, Harlan is a good inventor of diapers. CAN THIS EVER HAPPEN? Northwood Anchor George Spelvin, member of a labor union working in a factory making war material fo^the United States soldiers, sailors, and air men, walked into a food market Saturday and paid forty cents for a dozen eggs. As he was starting away he remembered that his wife had told him to bring home two dozen eggs instead of one so he returned to the same counter and ordered another dozen. When he laid down the coins for payment in what he thought was the exact amount the clerk said: "I'll have to have more money, brother; you're short twenty cents. "You must be crazy! What's the idea?" Spelvin exclaimed, almost shouting. "I just paid you forty cents for a dozen eggs and now you're asking me sixty. You can't put that over on me." The polite clerk explained: "Here's the way it is, Mr. Spelvin. You ordered this last dozen a few minutes too ate. The store's forty-hour week ended right at the time you paid for the first down and now the time and one-half charge for overtime has begun." "Well, I'll be dumb-danged!" Spelvin said. "Whoever thought up such a racket?" He pushed the last dozen eggs across the counter and said: "Take these back I won't stand for a gyp like that. The wife can come in and get her own eggs tomorrow fore- The clerk was patient. "Sorry, but that will make it more expensive for you," he explained. "You see, out of the seven days in the week the federal govfernment permits us to sell goods only for forty hours at the regular price. Then we can sell for eight more hours a price and ond-nalf. the pries I am charging you now. Tomorrow being Sunday we are forced to charge double price and the eggs will then be eighty cents a dozen." "That's the most barefaced swindle I ever heard of in my life," Spelvin protested. "I won't pay that much for eggs. If they're worth forty cents at five o'cock what makes them worth sixty cents at one minute after five' and eighty cents tomorrow?" "As to that I can not explain," the clerk said. "All I know is that the storekeepers' union threatened to close all the stores unless the government granted certain demands. It seems the fellows down in Washington were sort of scared of the cars and put an O. K. on straight price, price and a half and double price, depending on what time of the day or week the customer needs supplies." "I don't give a dee, dee, double-dee what the reason is," said Mr. Spelvin. "I've spent my last nickel in this robber's joint," and he walked out in a state of what he conideresd righteous indignation. At home he instructed his wife to hunt around the next day and find a store that didn't belong to a robber gang. The following morning Mr. Spelvin reported at the factory where his reguar job was working eight f hours a day for five days at a wage of $1.50 an hour, •'''and eight hours on Saturday for which he was paid $2.25 an hour. This day being Sunday and th,e factory desperately behind with war material orders he cheerfully worked ten hours for double pay. Then he washed up and went home with the reflection that while $30 wasn't such a much for a whole day's extra work it would have to do until the big boya in the labor organizations got things a little better under control. 1 wish I was a rich guy tike sonic guys and here the other day Harold Ollmore walked past our place and he had a pair of rubbers under his arm and t thought he was going to salvage 'em and he sa^d not because on account of they were new last year and he hadn't let the dog play with 'em and they were as good as new and he needed ',em and he said I could borow 'eni on occasions when he wasn't using 'em. He said in another couple of weeks and maybe he would have sold "em. There are only a very few Algona citizens rich enough to own a pair of good rubbers and I-ain't 'one of 'em. —o— That bunch in the post office sort of likes to have fun with me I guess but it Isn't so hilariously funny to me when they put a "Box Rent Due" card in my box on my birthday. It ain't the kind of a present a guy likes to get and it ain't even a nice colored card like a regular birthday card and it's not a nice blue nor a near green and I can't figure out the color of the card but It cost me 75c and Is that nice to do to me, you guys? I'll bet If they'd left it to the lady in the post office she'^ fixed it up with ribbon and pretty paper and made me think it was a nice birthday card. I was going to have the wages of all the' boys in there raised a couple of hundred a month but that's out now, and besides that the Congressman is mad at me and maybe wouldn't listen to me a^iy- way. —o— The Board of Strategy Is enjoying a nice addition to its membership the past week and Lloyd Robinson, A. E. Clayton, George Hagge joined Monday noon and they added the proper mentality and vocal choruses to the discussions and Mr. Clayton spoke on the proper meth- meal free for nothing because Julius paid for It and I couldn't find a darn soul 'who would pay for my 41c worth of eats. Either I'll have to be a lawyer or get rich enough to dig up for my own feeds, And I had a birthday the other day and some of the m'ore musically Inclined called up over the phone and wanted to sing "Happy Birthday" and that wasn't so hot because on account of some of "em are hot such hot singers and Henry Becker was going to fiddle the tune but he couldn't get anybody to hold the receiver for him.and he has to use both hands to fiddle and Gene Hutchins has a nice voice and sang It pretty as did also Earl Larson and he mixed a little Dane in with his song and then "Dutch" Swanson sang to me and he just is a good \ whistler but he can't sing for sour apples and neither can Dr. J. B. Winkel though I ap* predate the spirit of the boys in wanting to wish me well- on my birthday. —o— And there was a democrat •convention In town Friday and I wus invited and I found there were some more democrats besides me in this county and there was. John Bormann and Jim McEnroe and they know what it's all about 'and Alex Bonnstetter and Phil Kohlhaas and me orated about the politics and none of us said we viewed with alarm and we've all been In the legislature and which don't mean we're a -bit smarter 'n some other democrats but we got paid for it and Mike McEnroe, he's the county chairman, called a meeting of Gerald AgmrtJ, KcMButh County Coach NowatEldoraSchool SweaClEy: Basketball player! and fans of some flv'e years back-will remember Gerald* Agard ot Goldfield, who was high school coach at Fenton in 1938 and 1936, and who held & 'similar position at Wdst Bend during the next 'two or three years when tne ;West Bend gifts' team was a state tournament winner. According to a recent issue of the Mason City Globe-Gazette, Mf.iAgard has accepted a position as athletic coach at the Boys' Training school at Eldora and Will begin work July 1. Since leaving West Bend, Mr. Agard taught at Charles City and has .lately been In the newspaper business in Omaha, He id a brother of Burdette Agard, who Is also well known in this county having been coach at Lu- Verne and also having frequently served as an official At games and tournaments. He tettlred from teaching to go into the insurance business at Algona, later moving to Sioux City. the committee and I didn't get in on that because on account-of I'm not a member but Mike said I might ods of fencing in hired men and hcrw to go about cutting afalfa in rainy weather while George Hagge demonstrated a new method of dunking (that guy's got me beat now) and Lloyd brought his new pipe because on account of it wasn't as strong as the old one which he left at the AAA office and it almost bulged the roof. Then on Friday, that'was convention day, Hugh Raney came right over from the republican convention and I came right from the democratic convention and so the Board settled the political angle for us and he's going to vote republican and I'm going to vote democratic but he joined the Board and then there was Julius Kunz, of Wesley, he joined the same day and he drinks milk and so does Bob Loss and they didn't have any nipple and Bob said they'd turned the nipple into the scrap rubber drive and Julius joined and he's going to make a good member. —o— The hoard decided to do something about the nickel music machine business because on account of when an important subject is on for discussion some gink drops in a nickel and some singer sets up a* yowl and we have to holler back and forth across the table and Julius didn't like the tune about the silvery moons wlien there ain't no moon and Luke Linnan got his bring fiddle my for fiddle some time and 'em and Jim Sheridan, of Bancroft, was there and he said if I was going to fiddle he was going home and I don't blame him and the convention was a success and I reaffirmed my intention to vote the democratic ticket next fall because on account of I was elected a delegate to the state convention at Des Moines next month and if they don't ration my gas I'm going. , . , , —o— '~ ! -< The coffee gulping association is feeling the pinch of the near rationing of coffee and now you ain't supposed to buy two cups of coffee In succession and Gene Hutchins, now that he's on' the council Is going to""propose an ordinance that members can bring their own coffee from, home up town and carry a cup with 'em and breW their own at 10 bells and it looks like the ordinance will pass because on account of the councllmen are'all gulpers and can take it with without sugar and John Fraser, member of the board of supervisors, says maybe he'll start a law which will provide for the county serving coffee to the gulpers every afternoon. And here Jim McEnroe wanted to join the coffee gulpers but we don't have one of those cups which takes care of the mustache and Jim grows a real one. So he'll have to spoon, sip,, it or saucer it like Melzar Haggard dees and at which they're both good.
