W. Haggard -_ • • "Mike" Cowles Off for Russia that the Gardner Cowles family of To Become Real Heroes And now it is Melvyn Douglas, another Hollywood star, who is quitting the moving picture! , to Join- up with the U. S. armed forces. Douglas who a Wend of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, was about to organize an amusement center for _ he > «oU diers at the request of the President and his w fe when a storm of popular disfavor against so much fan dancing and amusement halted the program some months ago. However, it seems that Douglas, who is in his forties, really wanted to serve his country in some capacity. Last week he announced his determination to forego his salary which runs into the hundred of thousands yearly, and whl kin the armed forces as a buck private in the air corps. He is not to be outdone by Clark Gable or any of the rest of the heroes of the movies. Douglas Fairbanks, who is in the navy, was a member of the raiding forces on the French coast last weelc. He is a lieutenant and has been in England for some months.

Mr. Wiilkle is about to make a trip to Europe under sanction of President Roosevelt and will be ac companled by Gardner Cowles, Jr., manager of the DCS Moines Register and Tribune known to Iowa people as "Mike:" A third member of the party will be Jos. Barnes of New York. Mr^ Barnes and Mr Cowles were lately appointed .by President Roosevelt to head the new war information bureau Mr Cowles has lately been spending all of ms time in Washington engrossed in his new work. It was last year we think that Mr. Willkie and John Cowles made a trip to England to inspect and report on the war conditions in that country. John Cowles is a brother of "Mike", both being sons ot Mr and Mrs. Gardner Cowles, former residents of Algona, and now the principal owners of the Des Moines Register and Tribune. The two brothers are grandsons of Ambrose A. Call, one of the founders .of Algona. Both are rated among the leading newspaper men of the country. The Willkie party is expected to leave the United States in a few days and will return the middle of October They go first to Egypt and then to Moscow Where they expect to present messages from President Koosevelt to Jos. Stalin, Russia's dictator. We Want Rubber Senator Clyde Herring came home from Washington and spent last week in Iowa. Senator Herring and his colleague, Guy Gillette, apparently been on opposite sides of the fence in the synthetic rubber question-, but after reading Herrings • explanation ,rf his stand, we do not think that in reality they are very far apart. Senator Gillette s bill for the production of rubber from grains passed both houses and was vetoed by President Roosevelt •on the ground that it would require much needed material which would be taken from the general war effort. It is thought that the alcohol.needed may be produced from the whiskey distilleries now in operation. The distilleries are now turning their entire energies to making alcohol to be converted into rubber which in conjunction with the petroleum rubber effort may meet all requirements. Senator Herring says that he is willing to accept the findings of the committee headed by Bernard Baruch, recently appointed by President Roosevelt to look into the matter carefully. Senator Gillette, who has long advocated the grain alcohol scheme for rubber has gracefully agreed to await the findings ot the committee before attempting to pass his bill over the president's veto, and the tumult and shouting has died down, at least for the present. We feel sure that both Iowa senators are sincere in their efforts to do the best thing in the matter. army uniform for some time and Hollywood has no reason to be ashamed of its screen heroes who bid fair to become heroes in reality. To clap the climax Maxie Baer, the handsome pugilist, has offered h's services to the army. It is surely getting to be fashionable to be patriotic. Don't tell me that everybody's slowing up out on the paving. There has been a tendency to slow up, yes, but there Is room for a lot of improvement and don't forget this —every day the tires on cars and trucks wear just a bit more. Drove to Marcus, Iowa, Wednesday and came back Thursday and for want of anything else to do the Mrs. got cut a pad and we kept count of traffic as* we drove the 109 miles c-oing and the 109 miles coming back. We held the old bus at 40 per, never over that. 184 cars passed us coming toward us and It seemed like they whizzed by at 60 per. 78 cars passed us going our direction and 27 trucks. All of these were going more than 40 per, according to that. The trucks always seemed in a hurry. Of the 78 cars that passed us 13 were out of sight within a mile, indicating they were going at least 60 or better. We saw 19 cars along side the road patching or changing tires in the 218 miles. All of which indicates that the rubber situation is getting more attention than a year ago. And also Indicating that tires are beginning to get threadbare. And that is bound to bring more tire trouble, more blowouts, more accidents, more hurts, more hospital bills. From now on travel by car is becoming more and more "take your life in your hand" proposition because you are g;ing to find drivers who are in a hurry to get places and with nothing to do when they get there and they're giving no thought to the condition of the rubber they have on their wheels. Honestly, it is something to worry about. —o— And while I kidded our mayor about his Chinese writing when he signs his initials and I can't make it out, I discovered another banker who can put his initials on a deposit slip and a guy can read all three of 'em when he puts down BAS and he can do it with cither hand and write two of 'em at the same time and they .both look alike Opinions of Other Editors and so that's hew come Schemel is ambidextrous Gene so to Roy is Suspicious Swea City Herald: One suspects that government action against the Chicago Tribune for revealing important military information in connection with the Midway naval battle is little more than a continuation of the long drawn out feud between Col. McCormick of the Tribune and Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox, former publisher of the Chicago Daily News. When those two old roosters get to slugging ose another, no holds are barred. Elder lowans recall how Ool. Lafe Young of the old Des Moines Capital and Harry Ingham of the Register used to lambast one aonther. (Incidentally, Marshall Field's paper, The Chicago Sun, launched during the last year, is not shining so brightly. Col. McCormick's Tribune still has its circulation of more than a million copies daily, while the Field paper is having trouble push- ins beyond the quarter of a million mark. * * • Looking for Husbands Humboldt Republican: The average editor hesitates to criticise any movement favorable to the fair sex. Regardless of the soundness of his position he is immediately stigmatized as prejudiced, out-of-date, narrow minded and a dozen other unfavorable things. It is best for his peace of mind to let nature take its course. However the WAAC's at Des Moines, the camp for training women for army service, has aroused more critcism from both men and women than arrv other public move that the editor of this paper ever observed To date he has not heard even one commendable mention from either men or women. It is said that the cost of this camp—additional cost incurred for the benefit of the women-Is about as much as the average Iowa county will pay for bonds in one year. The almost universal opinion is that the camp accomplishes absolutely no good either to those who are trained :or the public. Also it is the almost universal opinion that the PW>J P « does not in any way promote the winning of the war. In short it is something very evidently projected with the thought of currying favor with the ladies and thus influencing public opinion. But U that was the object, it is a failure in this section of Iowa. ^ Less Talk, More Bjombing Webster City Freeman: According to a London dispatch, "Air Marshal Sir Arthur T.

O., he said T sure must have a pull with the president or it paid to advertise in the U. D. M,, and Wade Sullivan says if CTjl just go out and take up a collection and .buy some paint he'll make Phil Kohlhaas make his promise good .to paint the sigrr and Wade says the boys in the post office feel lots safer now since the cops took the air guns away from the guys across the street. But one of these days we're going to have that sign painted even if I have to write to two congressmen. There is only one thing that makes me real mad and look for somebody to hold my glasses and that's when somebody laughs at me when my hat blows off and I had my hair cut last Week and now my hat's two sizes too large and every little gust Of wind 1 have to chain my hat to my ears or go chasing It down the street and I don't look so dignified chasing It down the main drag and so when somebody laughs at me I get mad- dern' a wet hen and if it's a smaller guy I get ready to fight but if it's a bigger guy I just put the hat on and save my argument. And that's what happened when Alf Kresensky smiled broadly while I was fishing my hat from under an automobile and also Lloyd Bohannon when I dug my hat out of a storm sewer and Earl Larson because my hat rolled down the basement barber shop stairs and George Boswell because he saw my hat almost get run over by a truck and Mads Christiansen because I had to stop my bus and park and get out and recover the hat in a State street gutter and Louis Fuhrmann because he saw me almost upset a nice lady on the street when I was chasing the hat and that's the way it goes, all those boys are just more'n my size and when they erin broadly at my hat's escapades I just can't offer to battle because they could all lick the whey out of me and I ain't so hot-for getting licked too often, so to speak. —o— But until my hair grows out I in going to tie my hat to my ears and chin with a barrd and if I can find a couple <cf lamp wicks. Ill slip 'em under the hat sweat bane and I'll borrow a couple of ha> pins and fix it so the hat will stay on my head and so folks won't anything to laugh at—or I might even go bareheaded on windy days again so to speak. —o— Earl Vincent suggests a gulpers contest at the fair grounds tomorrow night, Wednesday. Says he's seen some of the gulpers perform and the contest would be a hot one and G. D. Brundage president o the local order of gulpers has con tacted a couple of dozen of .cur bes gulpers, namely Bill Fuller. L. C Rice, Adrian Sterling, Dale Briggs Bernard Green, Homer Anderson A. L. Borchardt, Bob James, Bil Giossi, Roy Christensen, Dr. Sher man Meyer and the show should be good and I'd suggest you come out and rcot for your favorite Winning points constitute the leas noise, gulping, non-drinking from saucers, non-slirping and the con test will be directed by Louis Thore son. .Next to my fiddling Wednesday the coffee gulping contest should be the outstanding -number on the program. I have been asked to gulp, too, but I can't gulp and do justice to the fiddling so the crowd only has to suffer the one time with me out in front. I've been credited with being a high class gulper and I know I'm the best fiddler in the county. OTTOflEN NEWS (Ralph Richards was a visitor in Humbbidl Saturday, ' .

Farley is given credit for a great victory. The dope now is that Tom Dewey will be nominated by the republicans without opposition. Dewey, it Is understood, is not favored by Wendell Willkie, 1940 republican nominee for president, and it is hard to tell how the matter will come out in the November election.

Your Storekeeper and the War This country owes a debt of gratitude to the retail industry. For no industry has shown a more (Harlan Newp-Advertiser) how to select and use suitable substitutes.

That goes for chain stores, independent stores, department stores and all other accepted forms'of retail distribution. Long before thfc federal price control was adopted, retailers in general went to work to hold down. Whenever possible, it lowered its costs and passed the savings on to the «MWUW»«. In many ta» tances > Jt voluntarily reduced its own modest margins of profit in order £, control prices.

Today, retailers are proving their abilities as salesmen of War Stamps. A short time ago, a "Retailers for Victory" drive was started, in which all kinds and sizes of stores participated. The object was to sell $1,000,000,000 worth of War Stamps and Bonds each month for the duration. Reports on the early weeks of the campaign show that, as usual, America's retailers are doing the job with complete and spectacular success. Your store, in short, is more than just a place where goods are bought and sold in routine the Never let it be said that the role of the homemaker is an easy one! Housecleaning, cooking, sewing marketing, meal planning—day in and day out, to say nothing of being custodian of the budget, the family's health; and so on, ad Infinitum. But to all this, add the duties and outside activities which the war has brought—well, don't you wonder sometimes if our "men folks" really appreciate half enough? Of course, we know that their job is no path of roses either and we must not feel so sorry for ourselves and that we forget to appreciate them. I guess the best thing to do is to realize that everybody has a good sized responsibility mapped out for them, these days and no one can spare the time to even think of anything but doing his level best to win the war! All of which leads up to a few "Helpful Hints", which every home maker can use as short cuts to ef ficiency. Hints for the Kitchen /When cleaning stained china, us. salt and soda instead of scourlnj powder. When you cream vegetables, coo the vegetable broth a little befor adding the thickening. This wi 1 avoid lumpiness. To clean aluminum cooking ul ensils, especially after they hav been badly stained by asparagu or artichokes, boil peelings of rhu barb In the stained vessels. To sharpen dull knives, cover narrow, flat stick with emery pape A few strokes of a knife on this is .all that is necessary. When boiling eggs, put a little salt in the water and you will have no trouble peeling off the shell. To prevent cornbread from sticking to the bottom of the pan, sprinkle meal over the pan after greasr ing it and let brown before putting in the batter. When grinding dry bread or crackers for crumbs place a paper bag over mouth of grinder, secure with a rubber band (or string) and you will have no crumbs spilling on the table >or floor. If the kitchen sink is a bit low for you use a wooden rack under the dish pan. A pair of scissors is far better than a knife for cutting green beans, parsley, marshmallows, etc., and for trimming the little crisp edge that sometimes forms on layers of cake, before icing it. When making a chocolate cake, butter the pan in which you melt the cholocate and It will slip into the batter more easily. Save all small piece of soap; dry and put through food chopper for dishes, fine laundering, etc. Paraffin is always ready, for use if you keep it In a small metal teapot. Are you entitled to wear » "target" lapel button? You are If -you are investing at least ten percent of your income in War Bonds every pay day. It's your badge of patriotism. Take a tip from a man who knows cars! For high test gas . . . at the price of most low test gasolines . . . stop at any Orange & Black 66 Shield and fill up with Phillips 66 Poly Gas! And while you're about it get your Phillips 66 dealer's advice on how best to CARE FOR YOUR CAR —FOR YOUR COUNTRY. One pointer he'll surely give you is ' Don't drive over forty!" Tire engineers have proved that driving at 60 wears out tires almost three times as fast as driving at 40. And, remember, a reasonable speed also saves gas and oil. Phill-iip with Phillips HARMS OIL CO., Distributors Super Service Station, State & PhUUps-^Hm MoMahon, Mgr. To keep your waffle grids from jecoming blackened, toe sure to al- ow the waffle iron to remain open vhile cooling. Hints for the Wardrobe (When hanging out silk stocking ,o dry on a 'breezy day, attach a clothespin to locse end of stocking so they will hang down and no je blown over the line and snaggec After washing a baby's or child' hat, blow up a toy balloon to tn size of the bonnet, insert inside an eave to dry. To remove grease spots from silk lay a 'blotter under the spot and then rub some warmed flour, cornstarch or talcum on the stain. Brush off and renew if necessary. Oil stains will come out of wash materials if rubbed with lard and allowed to stand overnight. Wash in cold water and soap first, then in the regular way. Wind small rubber bands or shoe, strings around the ends of slippery dress hangers and you will have a "non-skid" hanger. Helpful Hints in General Have each member of the famiiy prepare a menu for a day, occasionally. It teaches children how to 'plan well balanced meals and helps mothers to remember the favorite dishes of the household. (Tell them to keep in mind the budget!) Any kind of mint scattered about your shelves will discourage mice If bureau drawers stick, rub a Htte beeswax on the sides and polish well. This will make them open and close easily.
