It has been suggested by suffering club members that the weeds might be cut down In the interests of tooks as well as that of health. But as some one remarked about the weather, there Is a lot of talk about it, but no one seems to do anything.

Last year the season was on for seven half days and there seemed no material reduction of the pheasants, Farmers are said to be in favor of a longer season which it is thought would prevent overcrowding of the hunters. The wonderful increase in birds this year Is partly accounted for by the favorable weather during the entire season and to the Interest taken by farmers and thd excellent management of the game commission for the propagation of the birds. In South Dakota they also have a bumper crop of pheasants this year and now they allow a hunter to shoot seven birds per day, two of which may be hens. There they allow a three months open season, ending the day before Christmas in many counties. Non-residents have to pay a license fee of $20. Well, in these days of threatened meat rationing, it would seem to be a sensible thing to substitute game birds for the table. v RAVIHGS by REESE A Llttlt efThii« A Littlt of That« Not Much of Anything Dana U 66klnf fof vlftUMS so's he caa get hitr gulping every day free for nothing until hfr run* up against sonie 6f our experienced matcheM in the etub. < • EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Partisanship is Forgotten This talk of disunity in the United States is mostly hokum, and as for the partisan political division there seems practically no dividing line. Both republicans and democrats seem to be putting aside partisanship and have put their country before party advantage. Perhaps the most outstanding figure in this respect is Wendell Willkie, 1940 republican candidate for president, who was defeated by President Roosevelt. Mr. Willkie gracefully accepted his defeat and immediately offered himself to President Roosevelt to serve in any capacity for the winning of the war. The two former political opponents have joined wholeheartedly in the prosecution of the war without thought of political advantage for either. Now Mr. Willkie is off for a visit to the warring countries with a personal message from! President Roosevelt to Josef Stalin at Moscow. There has been no finer demonstration of the unity of all parties in the War effort than this joining of the heads of the two great political parties in the United States. The American people were never so closely united as they are today The Boston Herald In mentioning Mr. Willkie's mission, says: "Wendell WiOkie will not bring back any valuable data from Russia, but he will deliver goods thierc which tlte presiddnt himself could not. , >• j "The Nazis and the Japanese choose to draw comfort atnd sweeping conclusions fr,om such local frays as the primary in which Hamilton Fish was renominated and the New York convention wihich preferred Mr. Farley's man to President Roosevelt's. Ityie Axis tells its • -people about our disunity and squabbling and lack of intenqst in foreign affairs. "But now the outstanding republican of the nation, the man who opposed President Roosevelt in 1940 and may be the nominee In 1944, is to visit Russia as a semi-iofficial ambassador of good will, the president's agent. "Lords H«|W Haw and Hce Haw will make light of the trip, buti will the Germans who near about it? Although Mr. Willkie has said |a,ml |dpne many tilings wfiich put the nation in debt to him and should endear him to every- Uody, he has never performed such a service as the one which lies ahead of him. He will bo the perfect persoJiifiealHon of national co- JiesivoneHS and war-mindedncss. 1 "A man of German djescent, Ills presence in Russia will be significant to even the most stolid of the Germans. He is increasing the people's Indebtedness to him by turning his back on{ poliUcs and subojrdJJiating Mm- solf to the men he competed against. How petty the running around of the professional politi- seems tel comparison!" Sales Tax Idea Growing And now here is the last word on the proposed natioanl sales tax and it comes from the Gallup Poll peop'e who have recently made a nationwide survey of public opinion. The survey shows a constantly increasing number in favor of such a tax. In May this year 45 percent of all voters favored a 3% sales tax.. By July the percentage approving the 3% tax had risen to 52%. Today it has risen to 57%. A similar trend has been noted on a national tax calling for 2%. Last May those favoring the 2% sa!«s tax were 54%, in July it was 58% and today it is 61%.; It looks to us that the sales tax will eventually be resorted to as a means of raising part of the money necessary to meet the enormous costs of war. The sales tax is more easily collected and would be felt more Idghtly than any other in our opinion. It is favored by many of the leading economists of the country. Opinions of Other Editors I noted reoenfily that MHton Norton uses a different cane every now and then when he uses on (most of the time he sails down the main drag without' one) and 1 asked him how come so many different canes and he said he was just trying to keep In style along with the" ladies who have diffefen colored shoes and different colored dresses to match to keep up with the weather and so depending on the sun and clouds—that's the reason fo rthe different colored canes and he also said he had one special sort of defense cane a bit heavier than the others and which he used when he was bothered by some folks and I am ust that dumb, I wonder what he meant by that.

Alijout four miles west of town on the pavement Wednesday afternoon at 5 bells one of my. tires got tired and busted. So I hied myself into the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Rich, farmers, and used their telephone to get help and I was so flabbergasted and excited and when I started to leave the A Great Year for Ragweeds The days of the hay fever season are again ^ „„,.,„.

We considered him something of a "nut" and a few years later pushed Hitler over into the same classification. We made hundreds of jokes about Gandhi and his bed-sheet costume and we picked the Japs as politely meek little yes men always anxious to curry favor with the white people. We had a great deal of amusement out of but now—well the picture Isn't half as funny as the Sunday newspaper comic sheet. Which is about the same as having to acknowledge that we're not always real smart ourselves. * * • Urges Gillette to Keep On Spencer Times: Edward Breen, of Fort Dodge, former state senator and present Democratic candidate for congress in the sixth district, now urges Senator Guy M. Gillette to seek the passage of the farm bloc rubber bill over the president's veto. "The whole rubber program,!' says Mr. Breen, "should be taken away from the bureaus and the bureaucrats that have .bungled it. If we lose this war it will be lost in Washington. The president can't watch everything nor can he know everything." However, we think the president has been v/atching "everything" pretty closely in this rubber business and the reasons he gave for vetoing the synthetic rubber bill were very ample. Senator Gillette realized this and has already stated he will not try to pass the bill, over the veto, at least not at this time. * * » Even Cows Are Victims Webster City Freeman: The story going the rounds to the effect that a German soldier in Norway was recently gored by a bull and that Quisling ordered the shooting of ten cows in reprisal, lacks confirmation. That's' the policy pursued against human hostages, but Hitler puts more value upon cows tljan upon human beings. * * » Nine and a Half Million Dead Northwood Anchor: Prof. Townsend of New York University in a magazine article the middle of August gives an estimate on the number of dead feet have a sympathetic smell to 'em and Toto is satisfied when Doc's with him. I wonder can it be that those two boys use the same tactics and same space of time between feet washings? Toto probably knows. —o— Just to show what a difference In points of view we different humans have down at ,the fair grounds last week Lloyd Bohannon had a fish bowl full of matches and people guessed how many there were in the bowl and the guesses were from j tiouse I lost my way and started :o walk Into the pantry and Mis. ftich suggested If I was hungry shd'd be glad to let me gulp a cup of coffee but I wasn't hungry, I was just dumb and Mrs Rich Is ucky that I didn't walk out with :he telephone instead of the telephone book and out In the country 'ou have to crank a crank to get central and I was so dumb I just stood there with the receiver glue< o my ear and finally Edward sug jested I had to do some crani wistlng to get central and the'r my face was red but the Rich' ivore nice and accommodatln, hough Ed admitted I was in a heel of a ifix with only three tires am no spare. That mile of pavement out wcs there is a hoodoo to wie because on account of last Christmas I wen' into the ditch in front of John Sab in's place and a couple of weeks later I ran out of gas in front o Ray Smith's place and Wednesday a tire blew out in front of the Rich place and there are three farm houses right in a row where I know where the telephone hangs and 1 have been in the kitchens of al three but so far I haven't had any coffee to gulp in any of 'em.

But tire conservation and other things connected with the war effort seems to have prevented a good many from seeking this relief. The pollen from only 7,000 are credited to the United States.

Of course in Iowa we have "weed commis- ers" who are supposed to see that all "noxious" weeds are liquidated. It may be that the commissioners do not consider the rag weed "noxious." automobile smash-ups in this country one gets another angle. Why is it war deaths seem so tragic while automobile deaths are accepted as the natural expectancy of the risks of motor traffic? Hell Preferable to Hitler Reign The terrible treatment of the conquered people of Europe by Hitler is known to the world. The Poles, Jews, C/echs and Norwegian have been tortured more barbarously than anything recorded in history. Even Nero of ancient Rome when he threw Christians to the lions, looks like a piker compared with Hitler, his Quisling and his blood-sot ked gestapo. In Norway the persecution of innocent and helpless people by Quisling has been noted by the world with horror. Nazi treatment of 500 arrested Norwegian teachers according to reliable records of the regular Norwegian government in London, has been given out. The teacheis were arrested for refusing to teach Hitler's bloody code. They were shipped overland and by sea to work camps in northern Norway which has been described by competent observers as the worst act of terror experienced in Norway since the arrival of German occupation forces in April, 19*0. Most of these teachers were middleaged or „-, „ - * , elderly men—men who had spent all their adult ing the ship to sail fell on deaf ears. ci »*,7 -. .. - t Li _ :_ -KT-- T}tahr\n .Qfno>*on fncriafVleT* wifh 9. shipping shortage. The ship was designed for a maximum of 250 passengers. Hygienic conditions aboard were described as "extraordinarily bad.'" The 500 teachers were ordered into the cargo holds or elsewhere below deck.. Congestion was so great that teachers collapsing from fatigue "fell on top of each other or sprawled among the feet of those still able to stand. There were no blankets no sleeping accommodations and insufficient food. Protests poured in to authorities from Trondheim residents who were aware of these conditions. Only Dr. Rain, a Naajonal Samling (Qulsllcg party) member, was permitted to board the ship. He administered aid to approximately 100 sick teachers. It was declared at least 10 doctors would have been necessary to properly look after the sick. Two teachers were found to have become demented and several others shows signs of "prison psychosis." Dr. Rain's repeated protest against permitt- Bishop Stoeren, together with 28 pastors of Troendelag, sent the following telegram to Ragner Skanche, Quisling's Minister of Church and Education: "In the name ofjTesus Christ and humanity the undersigned pastors plead for mercy for the more than 500 teachers who are now being seni northwards. We cannot be silent in the face of sufferings which we know they are going through. The echoes of these will soon resound throughout the entire country." To this telegram Quisling merely replied that "it is the teachers who have transgressed, and the pastors should rather by trying to taiUc them into using their common sense." 'Eye-witnesses described conditions in the hold "The trip from Faaberg to Trondheira was' made of the ship.

Shunted about the country in coal or cattle cars, taunted and abused in concentration camps, finally packed aboard a small, decrepit and unsanitary steamship, many of the teachers fell seriously ill. Some went insane, gome died. All suffered from fatigue and exposure. Today these teachers, and others who followed them, are confined to labor camps in or near Kirkens, in the desolate regions of northern Norway, gome are working on German military projects as common laborers; others are loading and unloading the German ships that put in there, bringing supplies to troops operating in northern Russia.
