Most of the farmers are In favor of farm price control, tout the farm politicians In congress Insist that they may get a "bum" deal if they are held down to low prices, while labor Is allowed to grab off everything it can In higher wages. President Roosevelt has said that congress should establish strict control of farm prices and allow him to "stabilize" the wages of union labor. Tha farmers know that the president has promised to "stabilize" wages before, with little success and they have no confidence that much will be done in that line If left to the president. A recent poll of farmers by the Gallup people shows 71 percent In favor of price wage control and only 11 percent opposed. This price control matter has come to the point that there must be something done Immediately or the country is going to be ruined by inflation. The ceiling prices on merchandise seem to be a "flop" and prices seem to be mounting. It may be a good time for making a few examples of those x wiho are breaking the celling prices on merchandise. EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard _ • • — Party Name Means Little This column has long maintained that the name Democrat or Republican means little lately to the ordinary voter and we 'have regarded that fact as a good sign. Voters are beginning to see that the names of the two parties are used mostly by politicians and office seektrs to further their own interests in the fight as to who will have the post offices and the fat government jobs. As a matter of faict there is little if any difference in the principles of the two parties, but there are still some people who vote the republican or democratic tickets because their father did. Of course there are differences between the nudealers, prohibitionists and other rruts. This point was made clear last week when Earl Miller, present secretary of state, and recently defeated candidate for the republican nomination for governor, announced that he had "resigned" from the republican party and hereafter proposed to vote the democrat ticket. Of course his recent defeat had demonstrated that he had little chance for office as a republican. Only his itch for office caused him to call himself a republican in the first place. He now proposes to support Kraschel for governor and Herring for the senate. He said t/hat Kraschel was about the only person who treated him decent during his campaign. "Kraschel has been more friendly to me than any republican ever was." Miller stated in his announcement of change of party, t looks as though Earl would change his party affiliation at any time if given a few kind words and that party principles did not enter into the matter. Mr. Miller frankly stated that he might even run for office on the democratic ticket some day. We know of a man in Kossuth county who, if we remember rightly, has at times belonged to every political party that came along, including Greenbacker, Bull -Moose, prohibitionist and per- The Drive for Scrap The newspaper folks of this district gathered at Fort Dodge Saturday for luncheon and organization of the newspaper drive for scrap metals and rubber. Editor Merryman of the Fort Dodge Messenger presided and there were about 18 newspapermen and women present, Including Duane Dewel of the Algona Advance, June Corey of the Upper Des Moines, Frank Clark of the Tltonka Topic, and Harold Clark of the Bancroft Register. The newspapers of Iowa propose to throw their strongest efforts into this drive and they are banded together in Kossuth at least with other local organizations. The need for scrap iron Is very urgent and we are sure that every person will be glad to contribute every piece they can scrape-up. The drive will end on October 17 and so far Kossuth county has shown a good record, being second in the district with 250.5 pounds of scrap per capita. Pocahontas was first with 266 - pounds. Some people have wondered that with the practically unlimited supply of iron ore in this country we should be so pressed for iron and steel. It semes that the processing of ore fresh from the mines Is very intricate and requires a lot of time that cannot be spared during rush war conditions. The ore mixed with the scrap makes the best kind of steel and quickly. Farewell to Mr. Dooley (For some time it has been rumored that County Recorder J. J. Dooley would be an independent candidate for re-election to that office. Last week Mr Dooley published a card In the papers stating that he had decided to stay entirely out of the contest for that office, and thanking his friends for the support they had given him for many years. Mr Dooley surely has had his share of county office and can retire gracefully after serving creditably as recorder for the past ten years. Good-.bye, Joe, and good luck.

For a couple of years they were scoffing at the cash balance in the state treasury and presented an array of figures to prove it was a myth. Then on the first of July the state got its bank book balanced and there was more money to write checks against than the republicans ever claimed. So, without shifting a gear, the Iowa Goebbels (plural) began complaining because the repubicans had so much money on hand and why didn't they spend it. They yelled themselves hoarse because the republicans were "doing nothing" for child welfare. Well, look at the record. During four years of democratic rule, nothing was done about it. In 1937, the de- The Catholic Ladles had a rummage sale in one of the store roonw here Thursday and I went In there because on account of there might •be something I might get cheap or for a song, and which it wouldn't •be my singing, and they had a radio and book ends and 'ladles' hats and lots of dresses and coats but no overalls for sale and they even had a dog which I could have bought but I don't need a dog because on account of the Mrs. barks at me enough and so there wasn't anything I could buy With the money I didn't have anyway and I could have gotten a nice hat with feathers for the Mrs. for two bits but maybe she wouldn't wear it •because on account of she buys a newihat every Easter, when we have the cash. But I like to visit rummage sales and the ladies are all nice to me. I've been asked how come I challenged just editors of the U. D.

Finally he became a republican, and , lar ,tment of Child Welfare was set up, and the 1 " Kraschel-Valentine regime appropriated all of $5,000 annually for this purpose. The interim committee gave the department another $10,000 that made $15,000 per year for two years. Then Wilson and Hickenlooper took over. What happened? The child welfare appropriation was upped to $75,00o <n 1939, and the 1941 legisature increased it to $115,000. In short, the Wilson-Hickenlooper-Blue administration raised the state's child welfare sup_, i i n 1 Port 776%. And we did it without gouging the Fed- Ne.W Clear Lake r ark eral treasury. That may be a sin, but we lowarra do not think so. In fact, more of the child welfare dollar gets to the child without the Federal aid, because it does not pass through so many hands, viewed by fewer inspectors, coordinators, sleuths and experts. And Still They Strike Spencer Times:' Workers at the East Alton, Illinois, plant of the Western Cartridge Co., set up a picket line last Wednesday when the A. F. of L. chemical workers refused to go to work in the plant because the company refused to reinstate a worker who was president of the local union. Only a few maintenance men were allowed to enter the plant and some 6,000 workers were on hand when the picketing began. A strike at a cartridge plan: when a country is at war? How long will the government with all its commands and rationing and restrictions to the rest of us, allow these production delaying strikes? * • • Young Senator Lodge Sound Webster City Freeman: The present Senator Lodge from Massachusetts, doesn't agree with the position of his senatorial grandfather who voted against our participation in the league of nations. The present Senator Lodge thinks we made a mistake in not cooperating with the other member nations. The Freeman-Journal was for the league at the time a small senate minority defeated our participation and is now convinced that had the United States joined the league would have functioned as intended and this war would never have happened, and that's what the young Senator Lodge believes. Too bad he wasn't in the senate at the right time.

The board gave Fred Shllts permission to wear a vest to kind of cover the loud tie he was wearing and which tie was so loud It even drowned out my false teeth clacking and Lawrence Winkel Is a new member and he Is taking lessons In the Swedish language from Louis Thoreson and has got to a point where he can say "shirt/ 1 In Swede and even I can't do that. It was •» sort of farm gathering of the board .however, because on account of the AAA was in the majority and Roy Brown, county agent, was there and he knows farming, too, and it just sort of left Luke Llnnart and me and Fred Shilts In the minority because on account what do 'we know about milking cows and butterfat and pork and beef on the hoof?

ACNT LUCYS Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING Lately there has developed a movement to establish a new state park on the north shore of Clear Lake, beginning about a mile east of Vert- 'tura. The property which is wooded and ideally situated for a park, contains sixty acres and it may be bought of the owners for $30,000, or $500 per acre. This seems like a pretty good price to us but may not be excessive. The Association for the Preservation of Clear Lake invited North Iowa editors and the opposing candidates for the legislature to attend a barbecue and clambake to be held on the lakeshore of the proposed park Saturday afternoon, September 26. Kossuth county's legislative candidates, T. C. Hutchison of Algona and G. W. Bleich of Burt, and 3. D. Lowe of AJ- (gona, a state conservation official, were given special invitations. This is being written in advance of the clambake. We want to commend the general idea of the proposed state park on this "beautiful tract of land. It would be something in in which all of northern Iowa could take pride. Of course the boosters of Mason City and Clear Lake are behind the project to a man, but it might be suggested that the outlay by the state of taxpayers' money right at this time when we are .scraping the bottom of our pockets for money ta buy war bonds is ill advised. With the terrible load of taxes coming on us next year and the •general unsettled conditions of everything why throw on an extra burden of $30,000. If the state has $30,000 to spend it would be more sensible to buy war bonds and later when Hitler is defeated, we would have the money to pay for the park. May Complain of Heat After Death E. K* Pitman in Northwood Anchor "We Americans, who undoubtedly enjoy the highest standard of livfng of any nation on the face of the globe," says Lester Benz in his Sheffield Press "are probably the biggest grumblers and fault finders to be found on any continent. "We complain about the weather—it is either too hot or too cold, we either get too much rain or not enough—conditions are never quite satisfactory To hear us talk, a stranger would surely conclude that Mother Nature really has It in for us "We are never satisfied with our economic status. Prices are too high for things we have to buy and too low for things we sell. It seems that we are never quite able to make both ends meet. Mr. Benz points out our worry and talk of hardship over getting along on a half pound of sugar a week with only ten pounds for canning. He pictures our resentment against curtailing pleasure motor travel and the necessity of turning in an empty tube when buying a new supply of tooth paste the threat of meat rationing providing excuse for us to pamper our suffering (hero com- P ^"Most of these things," the Sheffield editor declares, "the things which we consider as hardships are nothing more than blessings in disguise- Most doctors teU us that the average Amercan consumes more sugar than is good for him. Medical opinion is quite generally agreed that we would be better off if we did not eat so much." Mr. Benz is right. Many, if not most, of the so- called hardships which we think we are "enduring" and those temporary inconveniences which seem sure to come later are really blessing in disguise. People who have to walk more because of automobile disuse will be benefitted by it. Two or three persons livir.g in a seven or eight-room house will be better off occupying and heating perhaps no more than three or four rooms. Lack of meat part time and abstention from other strong, rich foods will ease the distress of many who suffer from digestive upsets. One could compile a long list of benefits to result from a forced change of habits and customs which people would not voluntarily abandon because the Joneses are still keeping them up. ,.',,, The Anchor endorses the statement of Mr. Benz that "the truth of the matter is ... that We have practically no cause for complaint . . . and that we have countless things for which to |>e thankful." Actually, to a degree, at least, many of our imaginary ills are blessings in disguise which we wUl later acknowledge. Being a purchasing agent for the home in war time is a job which every homemaker agrees is becoming increasingly difficult. The effect of the war on the consumer is a question leading to serious thought and women are beginning to realize that the problems of keeping the family well-fed and well-clothed are many and complex. While earnings have advanced, the cost of living has gone up as well and with our contributions to the war effort — war bonds and stamps, the Red Cross and increased taxes, the situation already means a strain upon customary living standards and in the days to come will exert still greater pressure on the consumer's budget. . What can we do about it? First, we can be more careful In buying, paying more attention to quality and usefulness. We can learn a whole new list of substitutes for items that are scarce, expensive or impractical. We can educate our selves concerning products, brands and labels. Always we must keep in mind that while we owe it to our families to see that they are fit and w;ll-fed, we owe It to our country to co-operate In every possible w a y ... to see America through, and I don't mean through rose-colordd glasses! We must face the problems of today with courage, national spirit and common sense. This common sense idea has heen applied in selecting the recjpes for this week . . . good wholesome, nourishing foods . . . easy on the budget. Frosted Meat Loaf 2 pounds ground beef l¥j pound pork sausage 2 eggs 1% teaspoons salt % teaspoon pepper 1 cup cracker crumbs or dry cereal 1 large onion Juice of 1 lemon Dash of Worcestershire sauce a clove garlic, If desired Milk to moisten Mix well, pack in 1 large, or 2 small loaf pans and bake about 114 hours in a moderate oven. Just before serving time, remove loaf from pan onto a 'baking sheet. Frost with a generous covering of creamy, mashed and seasoned potatoes. Place in a hot oven just long enough to brown slightly and serve at once. Slicing the loaf in the usual manner, each serving will carry a generous portion of mashed potatoes, as well as meat loaf- It is d good idea to prepare 2 loaves for a small family, using one in this way and saving the other to slice cold for sandwches, cold lunches and the like.
