We learned the hard way that liberty and freedom arid 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 9. W. Haggard Cordingley Wins Distinction Old friends of "BH1" Cordingley, for many years circulation manager of the Des Moines Register and Tribune, were pleased to note the distinction he has won in the newspaper field when he was elected honorary life member of the Central States Ci.rcula.tion Managers association at its con ? vention in Chicago last Tuesday. The association covers daily newspapers in nine midwest states, Michigan, Indiana* Kentucky, Ulniois, -Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and the two Dakotas. The -nomination was made by J. E. Rison, of the Lou s- ville, Kentucky, Courier-Journal and Times, who said:> "This honor is justly due Mr. Cordingley for bis many years of riotaDle service, for his outstanding contributions to the science of newspaper circulation and betterment of practices in our field of endeavor throughout the country as a result of his leadership." ' ' " „ "Bill" Cordingley, who is a 'brother of Mrs. b. W. Dlngley of Algona, was for some years a popular Algona young man and we can still hear him yelling for the old Algona Brownies, a famous colored Algona baseball team who were carrying Algona's name to fame about 1902. "Billy" was also a great golf enthusiast, and was at one, time ;s Moines city champion, we think. He went Des Moines shortly ratter Gardner Cowles and '•Let's forget about business as usual, pleasure as lisual, tires as usual, and. poll tics as usual. It's going to be the same war after election It is today. The danger is going to *e just as great, the future just as dark. Hitler and the Japs don't care who wins American elections just so w6 take our minds £ff the war long enough to fight with one another. "The American soldier mixing with a Jap In a dogfight over Australia doesn't relish the idea of ' putting off any decision until after election. No soldier or sailor does, and as for me the lives of our sons, the life of any young American out there fighting for us Is more important and more valuable than any office in any state of the union." Downfall of Dreiser Theodore Dreiser, famous American novelist and writer, apparently has teen over-rated. He was invited to speak the other day before a Toronto Canada, club and took the occasion to insult the English and Canadian people, shortly after arriving in Toronto and .before his speech was to toe delivered. He told reporters that "I would ' rather see Germans in England than the damned snobs we have there now," He further said that "should Russia go down to defeat he hoped that the Germans would invade England." He spoke of "the gall and brass of the English" and claimed they had done nothing in this war thus far "except borrow money, planes and men from the United States." He called them "lousy" and a few other names. Of course the Canadian authorities were vastly insulted as they should have been. The speech was cancelled and Dreiser sent home. Thus another famous man. who has for years been hignly rated by the American public falls off his pedestal and shows a great lack of even common politeness and decency. Dreiser is said to be of German parentage but has not heretofore been accused of being un-American. He is said to be 71 years of age and has had a long and honorable career as an ' author. . ing to g6 after the quacker as soon as the season opens. Doc told me confidentially that he and Shuin Were practicing up on duck calling, that they had a phonograph record whldh set out the real, honest to goodness quack of the Mallard ftttd thitf they haVe their regular rehearsals li'ke the municipal band and that they are becoming proficient as all get out calling ducks and when I asked Shum he_also told me confidentially that Tuesday night he and Ddc were in the latter'fl basement and they were doLhg their rehearsing and five Mallards flew in the Window and they had a heck of a time getting 'em put because on account of the season ain't open yet but It jusj goes to show what practicing wil do and I'm betting $?<X> that the two boys Will bring in their limit of ducks when the, season opens they've got duck calling down to i science and the Mallard can't resls their quacking. And that same morning I saw Rev C. C. Richardson buy a governmen 'luck stamp at the post office am he's evidently no slouch at baggin; the quackers but he didn't even olalm he could call a half dozen Mallards with a duck call, but he s a minister and therefore never could have the stretch of Imagination a lawyer might have. Now that winter Is upon us the Ancient Order of Amalgamated Coffee Gulpers is coming out from summer hibernation and coke consumption and the coffee is being gulped as per usual -during winter months. Nine of the city's proml- while we Gulpers gulp gulplly, but not noisily. —o— Artd A. R. Wiltrett pf Fenton was n the office Thursday and Paul Slgler was in the office Wednesday and both gave me a rain check to gulp a cup of coffee next time Ini n Fenton and Clarence Theesfleld said he hope'd I'd stick with my coffee without foam on it and whxm I will and that Dane blacksmith Elner Fauerby, offered to gather up a bunch of Danes up there an< have a party for me and theyc serve ebelskyvver and which I like and which Mrs. Chas. Glaus knows how.W*make swell and Mrs. Bob Kyhl said she'd let Bob sing his Dane song and it looks like I'd have a swell time at the party. —o— Talking about scrap—why don' somebody pick up the thousands o no parking signs, one like in fron Of the post office, and I don't know who It belongs to but it weighs . lot of .pounds more'n a sack o flour and I'll take the bumpers off my 'bus and donate 'em where a lo of those signs are donated. —o— On October first I cut my speed down to 36 per from 40 per as has been suggested by the government and the first de(y driving from Whittemore here and back I was passed by 16 passenger cars, four )ickups, two semi-trailers and one of those big gasoline trucks. I took the number of each one' and I intend to take the number of every motor vehicle which passes me from now on at 35 per. It'll be fun some time to check up on those drivers, so to speak. Fourteen of the cars were 55's, two were Illinois, the pickups were 55's and the big trucks were 7Ts. Whcih indicates that our Kossuth folks are Cream the shortening, add th<? sugar and cream well.

K. for lOc per hour he'd lend it and Herman Moore suggested something should be done about the rival Slirper organization. And that will be.taken care of anon. Almost simultaneously the Algona Society of Slubrious Slirpers had a session in Smith's and Bud Zender, president, appointed a membership commmittee of Bil Hawcott, Carroll Johnson and Chas LaBarre to sign up new Slirpers and the.-committee put away their saucers "and went out arid signet up right away Dick Sorehsen, Chuck Nicoulin, Bill Giossi, Ed DeLano and Gordy Ogg and "Tlnk" Wright is going to sign up but he admit? there isn't such a heck of a lot to slirping and 'Bill Hawcott says he can do two slirps to my one gulf! and that's an accomplishment and then there was a lot of. noise issuing from Dermand's and the-oops hurried to investigate and it was Chief Art Moulds and Art Cogley and Marc Moore and they were competing to see who could slirp the most noisily and Alex couldn't very weH kick the law out but that's one thing about the Slirpers they advertise, noisily, their slirping, not all slowing up to 35 per. I'm looking for a house or an apartment in which to move lit the frigidaire and kitchen cabinet for the winter, what've you got. Don't want to rent a hotel, nor rent, a mansion, just about four or five rooms, modern. Don't want to rent a farm house nor do I want to live in the suburbs, I want a place where I can^get to work without driving the bus or having to walk my 'dogs to the bone. If an apartment I'm not so keen about it being too darned modern—want a bath, yes, but if the water isn't hot- that'll Suit me, too, because on account of with hot and soft water the Mrs. would probably Insist on,rd have to take a bath every Saturday night and that ain't so good, in fact I ain't that dirty. But I want a place to live now that winter's coming on. And I ain't got money to burn —don't want to pay half my wages in rent. What've you got, if anything? And I had my hair cut again and it was at Hank's Barber Shop this time and Hank pulled my ears out so to-speak, and said he'd givi me a hair wash free for nothing V he could have my dandruff because on account of they were talking o" salvaging dandruff and I had a IT of it but I kept my dandruff ans he washed my face and when I came out on the street Bill Runge didn't know me and said I looked almost human and Bob Perry ha< a hair cut the same time and he ha( his whiskers cut, too, and Hank said Bob had the smoothest skin, the ki.nd you love to touch and whicl I ain't got. I still claim there are a swell bunch of barbers in town— I've tried 'em all and they Improve my looks and don't charge anything extra for that. Algona, Iowa, Sept. 30, 1942.

What If they do make the best fighters and are wiling to risk their lives, they should jw't be compelled, to do it unless they want to volunteer, Boys of this age are not allowed to vote, they have nothing to say about wljo snail have governmental authority in their hands and they are not considered mature enough to hold public office. , It 'such is the case, then certainly they should not be forced to bear arms until they attain that age which permits them to do these things, Young men of his age are usually willing to go into service because they are anxious to do their duty and to bear their share ojt the country's burden. 'But it/Isn't fair to expect them to have )» sacrifice {their future lives just because someone who doesrft have to fight has decided that they should.

We all know the perfect answer to that question;—one which stops all comment—all you need to say is, "There is a war on, and we're having no dessert!" This is casting no aspersion on the member who asks the question, because it is the mother and homemaker who struggles with sugar rationing, food shortages and the like, and it is she alone, who knows that there is a problem to be met which requires all the patriotic inguenity she can muster to keep the family well fed, nourished and satisfied. At the same time she must keep within the limitations placed upon her by Uncle Sam. After the war, when the medals are being handed out, and the "Waves and Waacs" have had their day, no one will probably even remember the struggle that has gone on at the home front—there will 'be no citation for th* women; who, without pomp and ceremony, without stars, stripes or publicity, have gone through what Sherman once so aptly expressed, was War. (But, about this question of des* sorts—why not serve a hot bread, muffins, biscuits, or some spicy, delectable "something or other" fresh out of the oven, which, served with jam or jeJly, will answer the dessert, problem and at the same time plepe the family W much that you will forget. th.< restrictions you've been laboring •under'.
