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 TZork, 1918 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard The Enormous Cost of War The recent request made by President Roosevelt for an appropriation of forty-two billion dollars was apparently of so little seeming consequence to the public that it caused but little if any comment by the newspapers of the country. Yet this single appropriation is far greater than the total coat of Ithe first world war, and this one appropriation is nearly twice as much as the entire national debt at J^he time President Roosevelt took charge of the country in 1933. During the past few years billions are mentioned as casually as dollars and dimes used to be spoken of, and the ordinary New Dealer seems to think that these big figures actually mean but little if anything to him. Of course it is no time now to be tight with money or anything else that will aid in winning the war. If the nation goes bankrupt it wijl be better than to allow the bloody-handed Hiter to control the world. We would rather have our children and great grandchildren be taxed to the limit during their entire lives than to lose the war to the ruthless barbarians whose bloody deeds have already made Dante's picture of hell look pale i:i comparison. It is estimated now that the war cost to this country alone will exceed over two hundred billion dollars, and many who take time to think about the matter believe the debt can never be paid. As Ed Breen tells the Townsendites in an article in this paper today, every dollar must be worked for by some one. Dollars do not rain down from the skies. Two hundred billion dollars La mora than the entire wealth of America at present. That would seem to say that we are now bankrupt. But the real essence behind this enormous debt is tho confidence of the people of the country that nothing can stop our winning the war and eventually liquidating the entire war debt. Even Frank Kent, the Washington columnist, who is very antagonistic to .the administration, says that he is confident that •!ths country can and will swing the debt. All the people ask is that the billions will be handled, economically in the great war effort and not frivoled joway in harnessing the tides or fan dancing. What to Do With Hitler That the American people are not so bloodthirsty after all of the cruelty and slaying of hundreds of thousands of innocent people by Hitler and his gang of murderers was shown by a Gallup poll last week in a nation-wide survey. The question aslced in the poll was how they thought Hitler, Goering, Goebbels and other Nazi leaders should be punished after the war ends. The poll showed 39 per cents in favor of hanging or shooting, when mcst anyone would have guessed the per cent favoring a quick and violent death would have been at least 90 per cent. Thirty-one per cent favored imprisonment or an insane asylum. Six per cent favored exik, which was the fate of Napoleon. Five per cent said they should be treated as they treated their victims. Six per cent said that the leaders won't be alive at the end of the war, that they would have committcid suicide or been killed by then. Three per cent favored slow torture with mental and physical suffering, and two per cent favored leniency. A young man school teacher said: "Confine Hitler in a cell with Goering, Goebbels and Himler, with the women of Lidice as guards." Most of those voting did not consider the German people as a whole our chief enemy, but blamed the leaders. However, it remains a fact that if the German people did not stand solidly behind Hitler he could not last long. People who do not recognize a rattlesnake when they meet up with one are themselves villains or fools. Personally, we think that these inhuman monsters should be given the tortures they have visited on so many thousands of helpless and innocent people and the torture should be of long duration. Northwood Anchor: Hitler is said to have ordered German arms workers to stay on the job at least 12 hours a day, 72 hours a week, starting la*t December. The British ministery of economic warfare in midwinter reported that the Germans were then making a temendous drive for Increased production, urging workers to increase their speed and would be the nation's last chance for victory. In the United States we stick to 40-hour work week. A§ to the Townsend Plan The townsend old age plan, always a controversial matter in the political game, has been pushed to the front in the congressional campaign between Mr. Breen and Mr. Gllchrlst. Mrs. A. M. Anderson. Townaend leader of Algona, has written letters to the candidates demanding to know their stand on the Townsend plan. Mr. Breen Has promptly stated his views in a letter Which we print below. However, we may stand on the matter, Mr. Breen Is to be' commended for his clean cut statement. The Upper Des Moines would be pleased to also publish a statement by Mr. OMldhrist, who Is said to favor the Townsend plan.—Editor. * » « iFort Dodge, Iowa, June 29, 1942*-Mrs. A. M. Anderson, Algona, Iowa./My dear Mrs. Anderson: I am not familiar with H. R. 1036. But since your letter tells me that you are with the Townsend Clubs, I must suppose that H. R 1036 Is the bill, which if enacted Into law, would make the Townsend Plan a part of our national economy. This plan, as I figure it, would take twenty-seven billi'Oir, four hundred and fifty-six million dollars out of the pockets of American families every year and pay it in the form of awards for living to 440,000 people who live In this country and who have reached the age of sixty-five at the rate of $200.00 a month, or $2400.00 a year. I arrive at that figure by the simple process of multiplying 11,440,000, the number of persons 'Over 65 in the U. S. A. by $2400.00, the amount of money to be paid each year to each person over 65 years. NOH|, I don't know whether you've stopped to think of this or not—but that $27,466,000.000 reperesents one-third of our national Income Oils year. One doltor out of every three -fit those that are made by us who are not eligible for this award will have to be paid in taxes to keep those of you who are not working but simply spending, living in comfort. The 11,440,000 veterans >of life who would receive this award, amount to less than nine percent of the population of the United States. The rest of us, the workers, the non-eligibles, who nead more food, more clothes and more transportation because we are workers would have to live on what was left. Figure it our for yourself. It is estimated that the national income this year will be about $90,000,000,000. Subtract from that $30,000,000,000. That is what we will pay you plus what it will cost to collect the tax, allowing 10 percent for such cost. That leaves $60,000,000,000. Divide that up among those of us who are left. There are 330,000,000 people, men, women and children, In the U. S. A. Subtract from this number 11,440,000, the number of those of you who are going to receive the awards for living and it leaves 118,560,000. That many of us are not going to. get the awards. We are the ones who are gjoing to pny the taxes from which your $200.00 a month awards are to be paid. Divide $60,000000,000 left for us after you have taken your $30,000,000,000 among the 118,000 who are not going to be on the Townsencl preferred list and see what you get. I liellevc you will find the result to be $506.00 per person. That's what the average of us under 65 years will get in a year out of tho national income. So divide that by t\\<elve to geb each person's av- craRD monthly allotment outside of the Townsend preferred group nnd jrm'll find that each of us not 65 will wind up oh tho average with $4.16 a month. So each person who wants a Townsend gift wonts to get five times as much as the rest of us are going to get—and wants it for nothing or for having lived 65 years. It isn't right and that's why I'm not for it. Many of you, no doubt, sincerely believe that this enormous sum of money can be conjured out of thin air. But it can't. It must be earned. It must be worked for. Let me point out one or two other things and then I am through. The two percent sales tax in Iowa raises about $15,000,000. There are 226,695 people in Iowa who are eligible for the Townsend plan awards. Multiply this figure by $2,400 a year and you will find that if we had to raise the required Townsend tax in Iowa we would need a total revenue of $544,068,000.00 a year. This is 30 times the amount raised hy our two percent sales tax—so you can see that if you were thinking in terms of a sales tax raising this money, you would have to place a tax of 60 per cent on all retail sales. There is nothing magical about any kind of a tax. It always has fri take dollars away from earners. No tax ever created wealth. Tills sort of tax would destroy us. _ Now let me ask you if you think that in this time of acute national peril you should be devoting your good efforts to such a program. While every precaution is being taken by our government to avoid inflation, you are asking for a lavish distribution of money which would put enough purchasing power in the hands of nine percent of the population to buy 60 percent of all the c vilian .consumer goods available. You would be able to bid things up so high the rest of us .couldn't buy them. No Mrs. Anderson, I'm sorry. I'm not for your plan. My record in the Senate will show that I always voted on the side of needy old people. But I have never fooled them. When campaign promises were made in another campaign by your present governor, I, afterwards, voted for such increases as I thought we could and should pay. I was one of a mere handful who so voted. The others shamefacedly voted the other way. You didn't get the increase that was promised. I understand the present representatve in Congress from this district has told you privately that IIK is for your plan. There is perhaps some reason to believe this because he did not vote against the passage of the bill that our congressmen had for establishing a little Townsend plan of their own. Since I think it is important to make my position clear publicly on this issue as well as many others that are controversial before the election, I am mailing a copy of this letter to all of the newspapers of this district. Everyone should know where I stand—and I think everyone should know where the present congressman stands. If he does not state his position clearly and unequivocally in the public prints, I am sure that his failure to do so can be attributed only (?) to his modesty. Yours very truly, EDWARD BREEN Democratic Candidate 6th Congressional District. Chariton Leader: Republican state headquarters at Des Moines, and some of the state's newspapers who are open supporters of Governor Wilson, seem a bit critical of Wendell Willkie's postwar policy on internationalism. To outsiders of both political parties, Willkie, by his insistence on a post-war policy being adopted by the Republican national committee was just exercising good, common sense, which was certainly helpful to the Republican party. Branding Willkie as a "Democrat" because of his action doesn't sound like good political judgment. On the matter of international policies the Republican leaders of Iowa would do better to heed Wendell Willkie and forget Hamilton Fish. HARVEST TIME FOR HOME MERCHANTS Humboldt Independent It is an open secret that merchants in towns and cities that have In the past derived the bulk of their trade from a distance, are in serious trouble. Owing to the tire situation and the threatened gasoline rationing the trade that formerly drove from two to fifty miles to the larger centers is now buying at home.' This spells calamity to the larger centers. It spells profits to the merchants in the smaller towns. More, it is an opportunity to "cinch" this trade in the coming times when tires and gas will no longer be problems. In short, it is the small-town merchants' opportunity to get back that which he lost to the auto and its cheap and pleasant transportation. Merchants in centers of from 10,000 up are facing bankruptcy—those that depended on out-of- town trade. In Iowa county seats of 1,500 and up merchants now have an opportunity to convince tho local people that they can get what they want at just as law prices and just as good quality at home. There is one provision. The home merchant will have to merit and seek Utto new trade. He can't sit in his doorway and mutter "Gol Dum ye, ye left me n long time ago to buy in the cities, now, gol dum ye, ye can 'pay my price and come to me for what you want." No! No! The home merchant can't do that and get away with it. He will have to put in a proper stock, make his bargains known and invite the wanderer to trade with him. And if he makes good, after the war he can hold that trade. In short, if the home man will now make the proper inducements, advertise his goods and "go after" the trade he can get it, also if he is the right man he can keep it. More, the merchants of such towns will have to work as units. One or two an each town can't put the move over. There, has to be concerted action. It can't be clone by handbills or broadsides or any other sort of advertising except that which goes into and stays in the homes. The newspaper and the merchants can combine 'and bring a lot of prosperity to the home town. More, they are doing it in a majority of the county seats RAVINGS by R£ES£ A LiHlt of ThU -- A LtHl* of Thftt Net Much of Anything Guess there must be a new Ruy at the city power house who pushes the button or' pulls the cord or whatever Is done to start the siren when It's 6 bells befcause on account >of Tuesday night last week the siren blew a short blast, just a sort of easy on the'ears blast, the kind I'm In favor of and which the city don't seem to give a hang about and that whlste screeches and yowls and moans and groans and I go nuts every day at 7 and at 12 and at 3. Good thing they don't use It at 9 for a curfeW because on account of that wculd wake up all th'e babies. —o— I met a guy of many counties the other xlay and It was Julius Becker and he lives a half mile from St. Joe and he gets his mall at Bode and his telephone Is from Llvermore and I don't know where he buys his buttermilk, If he buys any, but that's going some, living In three separate conditions, so to speak, but he looks healthy and w:ll able bo take care/of himself whether In St Joe or In Bode or In Livermore. —o— Up at Sam's place there Is a sau- ner, made cf army plate, and it don't break if you drop It, and that's what Carroll Johnson uses when he sllrps his coffee, the slirper that he is, and Bill Glossl says Carroll can sllrp out of that saucer silently sufficiently and it's a good thing, to hold in your hands because on account of it don't get hot like porcelain saucers and Sam claims it's for use of any or all sliroers who may come in the place—when Carroll isn't using it. —o— And the other day Senator Clyde Herring drove south on 169 and he stopped at St. Joe and bought gas from Bill Hammer, also a democrat, and they shook hands and visited and now I'm mad and Chas. Murtagh and Bill Haggard are mad and, Mike McEnroe is made and Luke Llnnan is mad and Phil Kohlhaas is mad and all of the democratic candidates are mad and I am mad because on account of the senator didn't stop off at Algona and have a visit with us and we aren't too mad and will vote ofr him next fall and not for Wilson because on account of we don't think Wilson would make as good a senator as Thornburg or Dolliver so we're going to vote for Senator Herring anyway even if we are kinder mad at him, so to speak. But Bill Hammer says'he's gioing to vote for the Senator twice, and after all, the senator paid cash for his gas. —o— Mr. and Mrs. Albert Gould, of Grove City, Minnesota, are parents of a new daughter and she's a lucky young lady because on account of she was born on my birthday which is the longest day of the year anil her name is Nadlne Veralyn but we are not twins, I'm older 'n she is and her grandpa is Joe Arndorfer and Joe figures that now maybe lie and me are related because on account of Nadlne Veralyn- and me celebrate our birthdays the same day and from now on Joe will be iust as famous as I am and on the ongest day of the year Grandpa Joe an-d me are going to enjoy a glass of buttermilk. —o— The board of strategy is growing In membership and last week there Were two new members, Dr. SchSap and Dr. Hoffman and they are both tooth jerkers and It will be nice to have 'em on the board because on account of they can tell some of the members who haven't any too good teeth hbw to care for 'em and bow often to wash 'em and It don't affect me since I have false teeth and my teeth don't have pyorrhea. —o— And now Chas, Oatwinkle says he's quitting-the Board of Strategy because on account of he's made up his mind it's a tragedy to be on the board and he doesn't have much time for tragedy, It's too serious and It looks like he was insinuating that there are serious members on the board, and which there ain't. —o— The Auxiliary tr> the Oulperg members who may not care to gulp coffee too publicly may have their coffee now and no one know much about it because ion account of in the forenoon Ruby Murtha goes out and gets a. big jug full of coffee and brings It to the drug store and Mrs. Gtossi and Maxine Hargreaycs and Emma Jean Rlnggenberg have their gulping at a counter and they can even dunk a doughnut and there ain't anyone knows a thing about it. Now. there's an Idea, only you gotta bring your own cups, and do your own dishes. —o— Earl Sheppard, he lives over Whlttemore way, came to Algona the other day and enjoyed a coke off 'Dutch" Lorenz because on account of "Dutch" had to pay "for it and I didn't learn what sort of a 'game they played whether It was stud poker, or whether they matched or whether they played the dutch game or what they did, but "Dutch" says Earl's coke cost him a nickel and he ain't in favor of that in the first place. But if Earl's got a method which can get a guy a coke free for nothing I'd like to learn it too. —o—• Ed Besch was In town the. other day and he knows me and I know him and we kreow each other and Ed says he wouldn't mind belonging to the gulpers club but he don't care enough for coffee to pay a nickel for it and anyway he's afraid coffee -will harden his arteries and he don't want 'em hardened and so we had a glass of buttermilk and that's healthy all the time. Maybe I could interest Ed in joining up with the Board of Strategy because on account of he's a gcod strategist. / —o— John Uhlenhakc, justice of- the peace at Whittemore was in Algona yesterday and he's a cractfer- jack justice of the peace and banker but he can't sing for sour apples, in fact he's not a bit better singer 'n Melzar Haggard and who admits his only singing is done at Rotary and I've heard him and I don't consider ' that singing and John wanted to join up with a quartet and asked me to look up some talent here and I'd suggest three of the boys who wo.rk In the banks here, they should get along good because they are all agreed on the pitch and tune "Have you got any collateral," at any rate they have the sweetest voices -when they ask that. AUNT LUCY'S Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING A little inguenity goes a long way in these wartime days of sugar rationing. Even though we nre limited in the amount of sugar we may purchase weekly, it is still possible to serve desserts and to Iteep the cookie jar filled if we choose our recipes wisely and learn to substitute honey, syrup, molasses and swefcte^ied condensed milk in place of sugar. These luxuries lack nothing in taste appeal and the dessert lovers in the family will appreciate your efforts, all the more if they know that neither the budget nor the precious sugar supply has been materially affected. The folowing recipes offer a few suggestions and by using some of the ingenuity mentioned above and u little experimenting you may be able to contrive some new ones out of old favorites.

' I can't get a congressman to put swinging doors in the post office and Wade Sullivan says he ain't got time now since golfing has started and so I am wondering if the post office would have the parking sigif repainted because on account of you can't tell whether you can park or whether you can't, the elements have worn it out so much and some kid turned It around and there ain't nothing on the other side and here was 'Hill" Norman, "Bob" Perry, Ralph Elbert, Clarence Worrell, foe Harlg, G. B. Brundage, Bert Palmer, Joe Bestenlehner and "Cleve" Barton one afternoon popping away at that sign across the street with air rifles and because on account they thought it was a target instead of a parking sign. Something ought to be done -about It -or the Tlfles taken away from those boys before they break a window light in the post office or something. Phil Kohlhaas has offered to paint one side of the sign, now If I can get the congressman to hire somebody to paint the other side, we'd have the air rle target menace taken care of. 0909iB0609KB09360BOIOCBOBLBK8093B36CBC(r < SENECA NEWS i Mr. and Mrs. Alex Haacks are the parents of a 'baby daughter boi IT last week.
