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 And now the question of Whether tb draft the boys above 18 years of age or to draft married men with' or without children is up. It seems that the unmarried men between the ages of 20 and 4S Are practically exhausted. Several bills have been Introduced In congress lowering the draft age to 18, but with the timid congress on the verge of election it is generally conceded that there Will be nothing done until after the November election. The artty men are in favor of draftlrtg the boys, claiming that thej 4 or.eke tetter soldiers than the older men. personally, we wou'd have doubts about that. It is true that the younger men are more ready to tackle the enemy, perhaps, and are more liable to be foolhardy, but that does not mean that they would be better soldiers. Undoubtedly If the boys were iin charge of the army right now, there would be an invasion of Europe at once. Of course this might mean losing the war. We wou'd sooner trust the older men both as soldiers and officers. Another argument against the drafting of the youn-ger m«n is the fact that they are not "seasoned" and do not know how to care for themselves, and ,are consequently more liable to become ill. In Iowa there are 40,000 youths in this lower bracket who would be eligible for military service should the age be lowered to IS. it is of course a delicate matter to decide and should not be approached lightly. If the war goes on for a few years, which it well: may, it is proposed that the United tates raise an army of eleven million and a half men, the largest army in the world. It Is estimated that it will probably be a year yet before the married men with children will be drafted. In the meantime the fate of the boys between 18 and 20 is in the hands of congress. Opinions of Other Editors EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Inflation Must Be Stopped Of course it has long been known that inflation is on the way unless the prices of farm produce and wages in industry be controlled with an iron harrd if we are to escape a ruinous inflation that will wreck the economic system of the country. Both congress and President Roosevelt have played around the question all summer, apparently too timid to really do anything. The president talked about stabilizing wages but it looks as though his fear of the labor unions has prevented any decisive act. He has warned the farmers repeatedly that the prices of living must be kept down by a ceiling on farm products. In his message last week he seemed to become firmer and warned congress •thait he would be obliged to take the matter in his own hands If they did not act in the matter before October first. Many, or at least a considerable number, of the members of congress, like Senator Taft, set up a howl that the president was trying to usurp more-power and accused him of trying to dictate to the country. Well, it seems that it is about time for someone to do something in the matter. If a timid congress will not move to stop the disaster of inflation, then the country will 1 undoubtedly back up the president in putting an Iron lid on the rising prices of food and the demands of union labor for ridiculous wages. We are now supposed to have a Glad He's Out of Germany Decorah Journal:/ During the early days of the first World War, Mike Thiel as a youth in Germany near the Luxemburg border heard the heavy roar of German cannon as the Kaiser's troops rolled into Holland, Belgium and on toward Prance. Following the war, Mike's father returned to their home, a cripple for life as a result of Wor!6 war No. 1. One member of a Jarge family, Mike could see little future for him in Germany. As soon as he could manage it, Mike came to America and has been operating a farm In this country for many years, making a success as a renter. Seven of his brothers are now in the German army in World War No. 2 so far as Mike knows. The last letter he received told of hunger and sad conditions in the Thiel home in Germany—not the pleasant place to live the Thiels had known before World War No. 1. After operating a Winneshiek county farm for years as a renter, Mike is goirrg to have-a place of his own—a farm that will belong to him and his children, where they can work and plan for the future. Not long ago when seven saboteurs were arrested and most of them executed, Mike was questioned as to whether one Werner Thiel was one of his -brothers. The report was irrcorrcct, but as Mik saicU "Thank God I aon in America with my ows business and my wife and family." Tens of thousands of fine American citizens, formerly Germans like Mike Thiel, are thanking God they live In America where their children are being brought up as human beings and not trained from inflancy to be cannon fodder. These people who came from Germany are now sound, solid Am" cans and comprise some of our finest citizenry. * * • Scaring HcM Out of Them Britt Tribune: Many of the news,releases coming over the radio and newspapers, it seems to me, are not based on fact.

But when you have taken out everything they have In them and they are no good to a church or to society —they become imbeciles. This putting out stories on radio and press that such and such counties are way below their quotas in purchase of bonds and stamps as a case in mind. Scaring "hell" out of the many who are doing the best they can will discourage them and the tightwads who will not buy bonds a,re so hard boiled that one cannot dislodge the "hell" in them by a news story or a public address. * * * eery bills shows that for the past several months notwithstanding the ceiling, the food items are steadily rising and meats are now so high that it is hard for the ordinary family to serve meat on their table. Workers in many of our war plants are receiving fantastic wages and it is certainly time to put a stop to the whole matter if we would not ftllow the country to be wrecked. Of course what •we need is a real business head to handle the matter, something it seems .we have not so far had. Let President Roosevelt now show whether he Is a man or a mouse. It seems that he has the power in war time to go over the heads of congress and he should now do that very thing, and we believe he will. The War Begins to Pinch At last it seems to have been- settled definitely that Iowa and the whole United States will go on gas rationing some time in November and October 15 has been definitely set as the date for fuel oil rationing to begin. This is really the first taste we have had of the pinch of the war affect- Ing everybody. It is proposed to allow the ordinary person gas enough for 5,000 miles a year, which of course will put all traveling salesmen driving a car out of commission. This rationing is not on account of a shortage of gasoline but solely to conserve tires. Also a 35-mile speed limit is proposed in- all sections of the country. Perhaps both of these limitations will be for the general good and there will not be so much senseless running around. The rationing of fuel oil will be the most keon- ly felt and in homes where there is ITO other provisions for heating there is liable to be real hardship. The fuel oil ration will be approximately 75 per cent of the oil burned in a normal winter. Last year's comparatively mild winter will not be used as a basis for fixirrg the season's ration. There are over 29 million autos and ration books must be be provided for all before the rationing can begin. Better Watch Out Algona retailers had better watch their step in regard to the ceiling prices recently put in force by the government. In Baltimore the other day a retailer was fined $50 and costs for a two cent overcharge for a tube of tooth paste. The authorities are on the watch for any infractions of the law and propose to make examples of all violators. We suspect there may be violators of celling prices evc-n in the city of Algona, and if so they should take warning. Many Nuts In Washington Northwood Anchor: Some fellow in Washington- with a brain that must nave a queer twist is again advocating a moratorium on private debts until after the war. That is, if you owe somebody, you will not need to pay on the agreed date but instead will be expected to put the payment money into war bonds. If the ridiculous thing should go through how then is the man- you don't pay going to buy war ,bonds? As an amendment it is proposed that the government lend debtors the money to pay creditors, but how will that help? In that case the government will take the money away from the creditors to lend to the debtors to pay the creditors. It is getting too complicated—this is a good place to stop. * * * Nobody Wanted War Humboldt Republican: Walter Davenport in an article in last week's Collier's Magazine in a breezy way goes into the contentions and the ambitions and records of those who previous to Pearl Harbor opposed the entry of the United States into the world war. Mr. Davenport is quite liberal in his comments, and does not either approve or condemns those who differed with the war proponents prior to the actuaSjftttack on this country by Japan. The facts seem to be that it is not fair to condemn those who counseled our isolation from war participation previous to the attack on us. There are two schools of thought on that. Of course we all realize at this time it would be impossible to live in a world where the Nazis dominated Europe, Asia and Africa and were free to reach out over the seas to the western hemisphere. But it is a very debatable question if Hitler ever could conquer Europe even- if he destroyed the gov- ments of England and Russia. There are many people well versed in history and human reactions who believe that Hitler would have found himself surounded by rebellion, intrigue and guerilla warfare to such an- extent that he never could have started an offensive against us. It is true that empires such as Hitler proposes can not stand because they are against human rights. If none of the conquered nations could struggle up in rebellion, some of the men in the Hitler regime would in time knife him in the back. But it is better to end it now, overthrow Hitler and Japan and bring peace to the world. RAVINGS by REESE A Littl* of This -- A Little of That -** Not Much of Anything I met H. L. "Woody" Wpodwar on the street Wednesday mornin and he pointed to his pate an there wasn't any hat on it and th hair on it compared with mini wasn't much of that either, an Woody said he wasn't wearing hi straw hat because on account o he couldn't afford to have it ru: over by a truck and he didn't ,wan to wear a winter cap yet and, a little further up the same stree there was Roy Ohristensen and he didn't have any hat on either bu lie said it was because he didrr' have any and I went up the same street a little farther and here comes "Chris" Chrischiiles and he From the Files Roosevelt Boys May Be Fighters W. F. Miller in Llvermore Gazette Personally we never thought it was humiliating to acknowledge a mistake. All people are mistaken at times—many times in fact—and we admire those who admit errors of judgment. And so, while we do not recollect printing any scathing statements at the time when it was the principal indoor sport to get off sarcastic remarks albout how easy it was to get along in the army if you happened to be the president's son, yet /we plead guilty to being in sympathy with a lot of those remarks. So you will remember when James Roosevelt was no anore a soldier, and was commissioned. Every columnist who had a typewriter and was not in sympathy with this administration, sat down and hunt-and-pecked out a blistering broadside of how James Roosevelt was no more of a soldier, and haid no Intention of being, than the butcher or baker, or candla-stick maker, and that steps had 'been atken to take care of the spindly-legged young fellow and keep him out of any actual danger. That was perhaps all night at the time, and until the stories and pictures of the marines' at- tack on the Jap-held islands began to come in. There was James mentioned in the dispatches. They said he was second in command, and one of the first to hop from a landing boat and make his way toward shore. Then the pictures began coming in. And there was Jamea, spindly-legged against a background of palms and abandoned Japanese quarters. There was James, who wasn't supposed to risk anything more dangerous than feeding Falls, or playing tennis with Henry WaKace, exposing himself to Japanese snipers. Okay, James, we'll apologize if we ever passed out any sarcastic remarks or even sympathized with thje writers who did. We were dead wrong. The next thing you know we'll be writing a fan letter to Harold Ikes, tellng him how masterful he has been, and how we are baking him a cake to make up for spreading what we thought were scare rumors about an oil shortage. put there are a lot of other guys saying and doing things that we believe are dead wrong, and until they mend their ways or perform some act proving that our judgment S& wrong, what we said about them still goes.

Ostwinkle says he intends to suspend ai!I straw hat fines because on account of he's still wearing his in defiance of the law. —o— AncJ, dovj|n the street comes Gene Murtagh and he was bareheaded and he said he 'bought a straw hat from Misbach about four years ago and he was still wearing it once in i while and which would preserve it and then tMel Falkenhainer comes by and he had on a humdinger felt hat and he was going to tromp on my straw but changed his mind and I went into the bank and there was Ray Keefer and he had on a sailor and his face wasn't a bit red about it and "Jasey Loss had on a felt and that was because he didn't 'have a straw .o begin with. And Gene Scheme- said if he had a straw 'like I had le'd expect 'em to rum over il tvith a street sweeper. —o— And here was Herman Dreesmon f German township came to town- and he had on a felt hat and said he fe'llows In his neighborhood north of Titonka were all observ- ng the "ditch your straw" rules and with him was Garret Welhousen and he wore a straw and I had a. notion to smack it on the sidewalk and dance a jig on it, but Garret might not have liked it so good and I went into Barry's and there were 17 spectators and 6 of them had on straws and Bill said ne ouldn't do anything about it and anyway he'd wait until later when ie needed fuel for the furnace and le could make some use of the hats efore he took 'em away from the pectators and he goes without a traw, bareheaded, and so does .Vade Sullivan and Dr. Keneflck arri Bill Steele, though he should wear omething if only to help push hat ales and.Theo. Herbst and I look- d for farmers to come In without hat but they don't and even "Bud" rlcMahon comes into town from iVhittemore way wearing a straw, Roy Keele, west pf town, Bob oung, north of Sexton, John Johnon, southeast of here, all in town wearing felt hats and setting a good example of obeying the "ditch your straw" rules and regulations. Maybe they don't have a straw, I didn't ask 'em and maybe they wouldn't have told me anyway. I offered to trade my straw for the felt hat worn by Charley Riley but our heads don't match so we didn't trade. Speaking of fishing here's R«v, C. C. Richardson goes fishing and brings in a 6-pounder and later ho goes out and brings in one that weighs eight pounds and how docs he do it when I have a time pwHing in just itsy bitsy ones and I didn't see the fish he caught but I've been trained to always believe ministers' fish stories or otherwise and I guess after all be brought in the fish poundage as reported but to me a fish story is always more or less a fish story when somebody else tells it, but I gotta believe it when a minister telia one. And that's that. No, he didn't invite me over to have fish and coffee. The bowUng *Bey has been opened and I'm going down there one or these days and practice up a few lines and show some of these birds -around here how to bowl, so to speak. I have a pair of bowling shoes with rubber heels and one of the soles Is also rubber and the other is leather and I've been worrying about maybe I should turn In the rubber heels and the rubber sole to help the war effort like Henry Bonnstetter over at Whlttemore dfA He took off his rubber heels and now when lie comes dowre the street his shoes make a sort of clacking noise and you can hear him coming. And then, too, I can't bowl so good without the bowling shoes and I might be embarrassed when some of the other 'bowlers see me bowl. But Oast year I beat Henry Becker one time bowling and I've been kinder all puffed up ever since and I don't want to lose that prestige, so to speak. I'm told thait Russ Waller ivas a good bowler before he took up with the navy -and I've just got an itch to take him and Bill Haggard on some day and demonstrate that I'm really tops as a bowler. Maybe I could beat both of 'em, collectively ind individually, though Bill says ie hasn't bowled for a quarter cen- ;ury. And wouldn't It be some- :hlng if I beat both of those birds by steadKy striking and sparing to run the line up to 200 or better? —o— I've got a game scheduled with Frank Zender some day and he bowls with regular every-day shoes on and I feel I can beat him and I have to wear bowling shoes, with a rubber sole to stop me from sliding clear down the alley to the pin setter because on account of I got so much wlm and wigor. 18,622 6,103 10,001 3,7.45 3,575 7.78 mllea at * 2,883 I 22,430 OMICA/OO, HOCK ISUAiN'D AND PACIFIC B.
