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 "Sork, 1918 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Oil Co. Says,' 'Get Rubber'' The Standard Oil Co. of Indiana, noting that the petroleum interests have been accused of trying to prevent the manufacture of synthetic rubber frorn grains, in order to monopolize the manufacture from petroleum, has issued a statement of their position in the matter. They say: "rubber is needed in this country, let's get it in any workable manner. The duly constituted government authorities will have to decide what the method is, regardless of the private interests affected." "The criticism of the petroleum industry on this subject stems, no doubt from confusion over the fact that the industry has for many -years opposed attempts to force use of alcohol as motor fuel. There is a fundamental difference between using alcohol in nrotor fuel and using it to make rubber. Alcohol is not needed for fuel purposes 'because gasoline is abundant and much cheaper than alcohol. Rubber is needed at any price. It probably can be made from petroleum more cheaply than from alcohol. But present Indications are that all the rubber to foe made from petroleum will be needed for the military. If civilian cars are to be kept rolling still more rubber will be needed. Some of it may have to come from alcohol whether it costs more or not. The oil industry, which has every reason to want to see civilian cars kept running, would logically be the last to oppose any practicable method of increasing the production of synthetic rubber." The New Ceiling Prices We think that most all of the Algona merchants are complying with the price ceiling recently clamped down on all commodities by the government, and if they are not it is because they do not thoroughly understand the requirements of the new regulations. It seems that in some cities a number of merchants are suspected of charging in excess of the ceiling prices established by the office 'of prioe administration. George Haskell, head of the consumers' division of the Iowa price administration, has suggested that if it is suspected that the merchant is not 'following the rules and is chargin? moro than he should, the customer should first talk it over with the merchant in a friendly way. If you are confident you are being charged too much, as.i for a sales sRip, write to the O. P. A. office, Liberty building, Des Moiens, and give the name of the store, date of purchase, price paid, the ceiling price if one was posted, name and make of the articles, and specifications, such as size and weight. Enclose the sales slip and explain why you think you were overcharged. Sign your name and address. It is explained that many Iowa people think they are being overcharged for items which are not subject to the ceiling prices. Such food items include butter, cheese, canned milk products, fresh fruits and vegetables, most canned fruit juices, Hour in bulk, mutton and Jamb, poultry and eggs, fresh fish, sea food and game, prunes and dried beans. It is expected that there will be a strict enforcement of the ceiling prices. Now Identification Cards Now it is proposed that each person in the United States be required to carry an identification card, with his photograph and finger prints. The arrest of the eight German spies and bundists last week has brought the matter of identification cards to the front and the Gallup Poll folks made a survey the other day to ascertain the sentiment of the people of the country. The survey showed that 72 per cent were in favor of the idea and 22 against.- Six were undecided. This identification card may be a good idea, and little can be said against it. New York state is now considering various plans for Identification cards of tag*, primarily for Identic flcation In case of air raid*. In England every mart, woman and child have beert required to carry ft national Identity card since the beginning of tho war and must be prepared,to show the card when challenged by an officer. Of course It would be ft big Job to inaugurate the system In the United States, but we have a lot of postmatsers who may or may not be overworked, who could do the work as they did in the registration of aliens a year ago. The idea is certainly worth considering. And Now Russ Tells 'Em ODes Moines, Iowa, July 17, 1842—Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa Gentlemen:—ahem! Having read your valued sheet closely these past years, I am particularly taken by a discussion that has recently arisen dn your editorial columns, and feel called upon to write a letter to the Editor as a result.' I read Mr. Breen's frank statement of position on the Townsend Plan, after having the question bluntly put to him by the Townsendites, and considered he showed a fine sense of humor, restraint nnd honesty in his reply. This past issue, my valued friend, Mrs. A. M. Anderson replies to Mr. Breen. I will not take issue with Mrs. Anderson on- the Townsend Plan; I have done that before, and I realize that Mrs. Anderson is forever going to be in favor of it, and I am forever going to be against But, I would like to offer this thought. Things are more fitting at certain times than others. Thr; Tcwnsend Plan campaign is one of those that might have been all right before the attack on Pearl Harbor, but for goodness sakes with a World War on our hands isn't it somewhat out of place for the • Townsend members to "carry on" their private cam- raign for a raid on the treasury with all the other opportunities available to help Uncle Sam. After all, unless we win the war, the Townsend plan isn't going to have much of a chance. From what we have read of Hitler and Hirohito it hardly seems possible that they would tolerate the Townsend idea. Therefore, I would suggest humbly that the space in the Upper Des Moines formerly devoted to the Townsend Plan be devoted to material pertinent to winning the'war, and that the Townsend Club mem- oers use their splendid energy for the same purpose, so that after It is won they can pick up where they left off in an effort to crack out $200 a month for ail their members. Sincerely, RUSS WALTER. Opinions of Other Editors Mr. Hanroa Defies Mr. Breen Roy Hanna, recently defeated candidate for congress, in the Fort Dodge Messenger: Many of the problems we have today are the direct result of people trying to do things that they know very little about. Many 'of the troubles and much of the confusion of today is the direct result of people talking about something they know nothing about. I wish to refer to one thing in particular—a com- munaiation from Democratic Candidate Ed Breen of Fort Dodge to Mrs. A. M. Anderson of Algona, which appeared in a recent issue of this and other papers over this district, dn regard to his stand on the controversial issue known as the "Townsend Recovery Plan" and in answer to that article I wish to state that it was a colossal, inexcusable blunder on Mr. Breen's part to waste so much time and newsprint talking such nonsense, and that his article brands as crackpots any and all that are favorable tc( this plan or interested in giving it a trial by jury. I resent that inference with all I have. ' I do not wish to impose on my friends in the newspaper business by using up good space to show you just how wrong and how little Mr. Breen knew what he was talking about, but I will close with this statement, "That I resolve that the Townsend National Recovery Plan is sane and sound economically," and that I will meet Mr. Breen on that subject any place, any time, 'before any audience and post as bond my shirt against his. No Time for Sympathy Mason City Gazette: "It was understood that the death penalty would be sought for the eight would- be saboteurs, two of whom are citizens of the United States ..." •By now, seven months after Pearl Harbor, many years after the rise of Adolf Hitler, Americans prob- ebly cught to be inured to any shock produced by black letters upon white paper of their front pages. , But that one paragraph appearing in press dispatches about proceedings against submarine-landed nazi agents, was for some reason as startling as any of the la,rger headlines. It should not have been. We are at war, and in such time, the .rules of war must prevail. But, we may say, two of these men are American citizens. Very well, so much the worse. They left America, they studied in Germany, they returned, sworn to nnd intent upon death and destruction of the people they had been permitted to call fellow-citizens and countrymen. So much the worse, worse than common murderers, worse than the enemy in uniform. We cannot afford to waste sympathy, we dare not let ourselves be shocked or surprised that their war-time penalty may be death. We must not gasp, "Why, America doesn't do it that way!" America must do many things in ways it would rather not. For the worst of its criminals, it will still hold trial in military or civil court. That way is still ours. In Adolf Hitler's Europe, hundreds have been lined against the execution wall and shot dead every day . . . without trial, without hearing, for no other crime than that of living in a certain town on a certain day. That way, no matter what, will never bo America's. • * * Eliminate State Income Tax Webster City Freeman: Since our state treasury is in such excellent condition and is getting more than $18,000,000 from sales taxes, increased income from liquor store profits, cigarette and beer taxes, etc., the net income tax laws could and should be abolished. It looks very much as though congress was going to increase to 45 per cent the combined normal and surtaxes 'on corporations. The state income tax on top of that is a real burden. Besides, the state income taxes reduce the federal treasury income without in any way aiding the taxpayer, because he must pay it to the state instead of to the federal government, and the combination amounts to much more than would the federal tax alone. Parity on Grain Inflationary That the farmers of this section are standing with President Roosevelt in his efforts to allow the sale of government owned .grains at beVow panty prices is indicated by an interview with Senator Earl Dean, one of the prominent dirt farmers of Cerro Gordo county published in the Mason City Globe- Gazette a few days ago. President Roosevelt, who has always stood for the farmers 'of the middle west, has taken a stand against the farm bloc in congress, which insists on fUll parity or better. It has been suggested that the farm Woo in Washington does not represent the real sentiment of the dirt farmers If President Roosevelt would freeze the price of labor as well as farm products, then we would be getting somewhere, but the presidents .particular pet has always been the labor unions. Well, anyway, here is how Senator Dean views the matter: Mason City Globe-Gazette:, North Iowa farmers are not amon/those insisting that the government owned grain be sold at parity price and the so-called S bloc insisting on the inflationary price does not Set the opinion <ot the middle western farmer. That assertion was made by Earl Dean who has served Cerro Gordo county In the both the state fenlte and house of representatives. He is a real ri?Jf farnfer and has operated the same 3?0 acre farm 220 iSSfc' He*to 3£ cbainnan of the county democratic central committee. Inflation has gone far enough, this farmer believes, and higher prices for stock and grain would contribute to inflation. 'Td like to see the farmers set a good example," he suggested. Any grain which North Iowa farmers have raised under the AAA regulations already has realized them a parity price, he added, explaining that he meant the price which was parity at the time tha grain was harvested. "I wouldn't call today's price parity for grain which I raised in 1939," he went on, sweeping his arm in a semicircle to indicate the cribs scattered about the place. He said the cribs contained 11,000 bushels of sealed corn,, surplus from his 1938, 1930 and 1940 crops. Asked why he had kept the old corn and had not stored any of the 1911 crop he explained that he had stored the older corn under the two year contract and received the storage payment in ad»vnoe. "The storage for the 1938 and 1939 corn paid for the cribs which hold the 1940 crops," he admitted with a grin. "I've said often that I'd prefer to see hog prices at a fairly stable $10-$11 a hundred/,' he returned to the parity discussion. "Hog prices are too high now . . . and I've soid bogs at |2.«0," he added ruefully. "No, Ed O'Neal doesn't represent the American farmer any more than John L. Lewis represents labor," asserted Mr. Dean. O'Neal is president of the Farm Bureau and is one of the leaders in the fl$ht for a parity price on the government grain. MMMW ^ REESE A Little of Thu -- A LlHl* of Th*t» Net Much of Anything One of Palo AHo county's leading gulpers Was In Algona one day last week and he almost disrupted the local association Of gulpers with his bragging about Emmetsburg gulper clubs, and it was Larry Brennan and he's the AAA Chairman over there and he knows all about crops and chickens and double- yolked eggs and Newfoundland pups but he's got to quit coming over here and raising heck with our gulpers and he said that Emtneta- burg gulpers gulped glamorously and had a lot of 'Comph (whatever that is) and he told Bud Zender (Bud's a sllrper, not a gulper) that Algona's gulpers needed some training including Roy Christensen Who is an otherwise good gulper and Larry even had the unmitigated gall to shout so everybody could hear him that G. D. Brundage, local president of the gulpers, and mo, treasurer, should take a course in the glamorous method of gulping such as Emmetsburg gulpers gulp and I wasn't so impressed with Larry's gulping, sort of jron-musical» slirping he did if you ask me, but he paid for my coffee and I can be charitable and 'overlook a lot of his gulping shortcomings because on account of that. —o— But as for Emmetsburg gulpers— nuts to 'em. It just ain't possible they can even run a poor third with Algbna's expert gulpers. I noticed a dozen "night crawlers" for sale signs on one street as you enter Emmetsburg. They may be expert night crawler diggeruppers, but as for gulping—well, we lead the world here in Algona. And Fred Shilts bought me a cup of coffee and added his sugar to mine and we gulped and Ed Thaves gulped a milk drink of some kind with ice in it because on account of he said it was too hot but he didn't say which thi> coffee or the weather and then Dr. Harold Meyer came In and he gulped coffee and said hot coffee and hot weather were synonomous and the average tummy was built to take it and coffee gulping to me is the same winter or summer but especially is it pleasant when some other guy pays for it. And I was on my way to the office and Ralph Miller and Joe Bloom yelled at me from across the street and they each had three pennies and I couldn't get away from 'em and so we gripped our money and held up closed fists right on the main drag and Bill Steele thought we were about to beat up on each other and he said please not to get any blood on the sidewalk In front of his store and Joe guessed right off the reel and then I guessed right and the bank; er was stuck and Bob McCullougn was there and maybe he was fixing to take care of me. had I lost and passed out, but I won and my heart came back to normal and now Joe says "dutching" is an honest game and we're even because on account of he hasn't been stuck yet. But just wait, we'll get him and after Ralpn lost I thought maybe interest rates would go up again, but they didn't and I guess he had the 15c. —o— Our police force has been raising ing the dickens around the loop the past week, painting curbings and lines for drivers and for a time I thought maybe they were going to scrub the main drag, too, but Art Moulds, chief, says that's expecting a little too much, and so he and Alvin Hill and Paul Palm* er have put up fences on the intersection and maybe they did It to keep the cattle out-but It kept im and my bus out too, and I had to drive around a couple of blocks to get to where I wanted to get and that's hard on my car rubber and there didn't any cattle corns to bother the fences and so the boys painted some nice curves jn what I call a sort ofbrindle color but Art says It's orange and which may be It is, anyway, it's a long way from green, and I can ..tell the two colors apart. I'm wondering if I couldn't put in a .bill, to the council and get some refund on the wear and tear of my tires while 1 had to detour so much to get places where I wanted to get while the fences were up. —o— Albert Fosberg wf elded the brush on the curbings where a guy' is not supposed to park and he did a good enough job but the paint sure ruined several nice parking places for my bus":' Albert said he didn't give a tinker's toot where I parked my car but I'd 'better not park it where he painted and so I'm going to abide by the law and by his painting and park my car some place else. And that goes for you, too, Mr. Reader. —o— Fni about to sue the telephone company because on account' of •they printed a new telephone book and it wasn't printed in Algona or LuVerne or Whittemore and whoever printed it put some wire stitches in it to hold it together and they stitched 'em wrong and I tore a square inch of skin off one of my fingers and if tetanus sets in and I can't chew my meat there's going to be a suit and Fred Timm says he'd like to have had the 'book printed here because 'on account of he says he knows we can do n good job, and there wouldn't anybody be losing any hide if we stitched 'em, so to speak. But he don't have nothing to do with the printing of the directories and I'm forgiving him except when he-takes 15 cents away from me via the dutch game. —o— Something .ought to be done about that clock on the Barry building which ticks off the degrees of heat and cold because on account of the 'other day that clock registered 88 and I was about £o send home for my mittens and ear laps and here comes Charley Rellly and does some sleuthing and he finds that other clocks and thermometers around town registered 96 and which makes Bill's clock a liar by 8 points and.. I perspired buckets of sweat the rest of the day and maybe the Little Senate could do something about it. And, too, we don't want our farm trade to come to town and note freezing weather when it's hotter 'n blazes, so to speak, and) it's up to Bill to do something about it Again, remember, Bill, the bank fixed their clock. You should do something. Now that the bank has fixed the clock if Bill will fix his thermometer and if Mr. Pollard will arrange to have the cord-puller or button-pusher who wrings the screech at 7, 12, 1 and 6 bells, shorten the whistle by a minute, living in Algona would be one continuous and joyous song and I could even continue happy when the crooks and robbers force me to pay for their gulping via the dutch route. AUNT LUCY'S Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING The meat outlook for the summer is much brighter than many imagine. With farmer encouraged to raise more livestock and with adequate feed crops from last year, there is every assurance that meat production will be greater than ever. If the prevailing ceiling is a trifle too high on some of the "stand-bys", to appeal to our meat budgets, there are aways our old friends —meat pies, stews, casseroles and many other vitamin-rich dishes, which are kind to pocketbooks and appetites, as well. Building meals around the meat course is one of the best ways to insure proper nutrition, as meat contributes a large proportion of the essential food elements. Besides protein and minerals, meat is known to be an excellent source of vitamins, especially the important group of B vitamins, which are so valuable for maximum health and efficiency. These factors, as well as economy have been taken into consideration in the recipes below: Meat Pie with Catsup Biscuits 1 pound ground beef 2 tablespoons lard or drippings 2 tablespoons grated onion Vt cup tomatoes 1 recipe biscuit dough 1 teaspoon salt % teaspoon pepper 1 No. 2 can lima beans 2 tablespoons butter * 4 tablespoons catsup Brown meat in drippings.
