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 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Repeal State Income Tax Former Gov. Nels Kraschel, who is aga:>n a candidate for that office on the democratic ticket, has been telling that if elected he would eliminate the state income tax at once, but has not explained just how he would be able to do without the several millions of dollars the income tax has produced for years. Lately he has been trying to explato the difficult problem; Kraschel says that by transferring the revenues from the beer tax and liquor store profits to the old age assistance and homestead exemption funds now being paid out of the state income tax, the trick wuold be turned. The liquor profits now go into the general fund. The decreased demands for relief funds will leave the homestead tax and the old age pension funds to better condition than at present. If elected, Mr. Kraschel promises immediate repeal with strengthening of old age pensions and homestead tax credit funds. Of course we are all in favor of the repeal of the state income tax, but is it feasible? The federal income tax will be so heavy next year that it may be all of the income tax burden that we can stand, and a candidate running for office this year finds it is popular to offer taxpayers relief from any kind of taxes. We suppose that Hickenlooper, the republican candidate for governor, will also have a scheme for relieving taxpayers and you con take your pick between the two candidates by the amount of faith you have in them from past performances. May be Fallow Next Year The drafting of most all of the farm boys in northern Iowa, as well as all over the country, is beginning to show up in this section, and there is liable to be serious food shortage and hunger end distress all over the country that may equal the misery and starvation in Europe. The demand is for farm hands, too, but they are not to be found, 'or at least not enough to keep the farms in production next year. In the dairy section, cows are be"ins sold in some instances and the farmer is goina; out of the dairy ibusincss or reducing the size of 'his ierd because of the difficulty in finding help. We were talking w'.th a Plum Creek farmer tho other day and his only helper is his twenty-two year old son who is in the draft and liable to be . called at any time. He has been milking eleven icows and trying to keep his farm going, but now isays he will have to sell off his cows and seed his farm down. Of course this will put this farm entirely out of commission in so far as the war effort is concerned. The fantastically high wages paid by the government has also drained the farms of their man-power to a great extent and it begins to look like the army boys may have to fight on empty stomachs, the matter? Why not use a little sense in May Be Bloody Vengeance A gloomy picture of the aftermath of the war is pictured by Dewitt Mackenzie, one of the shrewdest of American war analysts, who is spending some time in London observing the ravages of three years of was and what it has done to the people of the conquered countries. Mackenzie thinks that Europe is liable to go into chaos when Hitler is at lust beaten. He says that it seems inevitable that many of the conquered people will arise in their hunger and misery and exact terrible vengeance on the na/i butchers who have so ruthlessly destroyed their homes and families without any reason other than that of terrorism and cruelty. Unless the al!5es are able to keep the situation in hand, more blood may flow at the close of the war than has been seen since the massacre of St. Bartholomew. Mackenzie says that "It needs no wealth of imagination tn see what is growing out of the hell that Hitler Iws dug. The French and Poles and Czecho-Slovaks and Jug<ySla*-s and Norwegians and all the nthers whose kith and kin have been massacred by the nazl fuehr- er'b murderous crew, are eager to exact payment In kind. But there is more to It than con- Roosevelt's Secret Trip The two weeks' western trip of President Roosevelt last month has been seized upon by many of the critics of the president as a major sin. What makes them see any major calamity from the trip it is hard to see. The fact that the newspapers were asked not to make any mention of the trip until its conclusion was nothing to criticize so far as we can see. Usually the movements of rulers of countries \n time of war Is not blazoned forth so that ail who might want to take a shot at them would be given a chance to select the time and place. Who ever heard of the press publishing movements of Hitler. Right at the present time no one knows whether Hitler is at the front or at the rear or in Berlin. Usually In this country it has been the custom for the president to carry with him a correspondent's car with perhaps a hundred newspaper men who recorded every action of the president and the schedule for his trip In his recent trip to the coast only three newspaper men were along and they were allowed to print nothing until after the return to Washington Not a line regarding the trip was printed in the newspapers of the' United States until after it had ended. Of course all of the big papers of the country knew of the trip but in the Interests of safety they carefully kept it from the public. It may be that the president can be criticized for a number of things but certainly this swing around the country at this time is not one of them. Opinions of Other Editors Ward Don't Like Gas Rationing; Eagle Grove Eagle: The government has decided because of the shortage of gas in 16 states, all 48 states must go under rationing. In other words if one child needs a dose of castor oil, make all. the rest of the children take it. In Texas, Okla- boma, Wyoming and Kansas, where they produce gas in abundance, and have so much on hand that all storage facilities have -been exhausted, they will make them ration gas where there is no shortage. As Speaker Rayburn says, in Texas they have so much gasoline, they are wading around knse- deep in gas. But they have to be rationed to save rubber. In Iowa we have pipetines crossing the state. We cannot begin to buy all the gas that Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas want to sell us. But we have to be rationed to save rubber. You go without the use of your car today in order to use it two years from now. Rubber does not last forever. It deteriorates ra,pidly. ' Many motorists have blown out a spare almost immediately which had not been used since they bought the car. If there was an actual shortage of gasoline, the public would demand rationing. But there is no shortage. There is an actual surplus. And rubber on a three year old car will not toe worth a whoop two years from now. If the government needs the rubber on our pleasure and passenger cars, it should commandeer it. But that will not be necessary if synthetic rubber is produced intelligent-^ ly from grains, nor will gas rationing be neces-' sary. Putting thousands of gas stations out of business, and throwing many more thousands of people out of employment is not helping the war effort. Looks like another beating for the small business man, * * * ' ' '>JJ ' 65 Degrees—Above or B«low? (Estherville News:) The WPB has pronounced an edict that 65 degrees above zero is warm enough for any home and that is as warm as those who use oil for fuel should keep their premises this winter. That temperature will keep water from freezing in the radiators and should do something for the health of the people, one way or another. \ Perhaps all that should be known about tho facts behind the order aren't well understood. But at first glance it looks as though the igidwest is being made victim of an edict that has proper application only in the eastern states. The shortage is not with fuel, but transportation, and transportation to this section of the country is not overtaxed or likely to be. Those who burn coal should have a supply for the winter, at least they have been warned often and long enough. Most of those who heat with oil have limited storage capacity and must depend upon the generosity of the WPB. Those who use gas have not received more than a hint yet of what will happen to them. Mainly there is alarm and misgivings, and this seems unfortunate inasmuch as the country has un- limted fuel of every kind and with small exception has the facilites to distribute it. We hope that the prospect of cold homes in the whole country is not brought about to make unfortunate conditions in the seaboard states seem more pleasant by comparison. Misery loves company. • * * No Law Can Regulate People's Lives •Humboldt Republican: Iowa's liquor system earned a profit of $3,621,000 last year. The money helps, but the people pay and pay and pay through the liquor consumed. If the repeal of the present Iowa liquor law would prevent the use of liquor everyone almost would vote it out. But they drink und drink and drink just the same. And if they must drink why can't we use the profit where it will do some good It's better than giving it to the bootleggers. » » t What? Only $91.50 Per Week Ames Tribune: At San Diego, Calif., the other lay, American Federation of Labor electricians i mployed at the marine base walked away from t'leir jobs. No strike was called. The men just q-iit. The naval district said that apparently the wilkout was caused by-dissatisfaction over wage schedules. The men were earning $91.50 a week. * * * Farm Labor Cheapest Webster City Journal: A law that should help agriculture tremendously would be one that would grant the farmer a wage per hour that would be half as h ! 'gh as the hourly wage in big industry. The average farmer realized in 1941 about 20 cents per hour net for his work, while the average industrial wage per hour was 73.6 cents, and that included common labor as well as skilled, the latter often reaching $1 and more. Fuel Oil Rationing Unnecessary RAVINGS A LtHl* of fhl. » A Llttl* of Th*t » Not Much of Anything And now there'* been another organization Started in opposition to the Board of Strategy and every noon this new bunch meets and eats and settles the high-powered questions of the day ahd they call themselves the Board, of Peers, meaning they are the peers of all men and so forth maybe, and Bill V'gars is president and Joe Bloom, vice president, and Bill Steele Is secretary and Dr. Nugent and Theo. Hutchison are on the board of directors and I guess they're trying to line up Cfyas. Murtagh to serve on the directors and those boys intend to take up all the questions which are deeply Interesting to the human race Including the proper stance and how to hold the glass when tak'ng on a Holsteln or Guernsey high-ball and the scrap the Jap question will be discussed and settled, and, too, a shortening of the whistle by the city at noon and the punishment that should meted out to the guy who puts a nickle In the music box in a cafe and tears off a loud jabb number while the Board of Peers is in session. To jo'n the Board of Peers you must be able to speak, read "dutoher" de luxe, won the football guessing contest when he hac the best score on ft Bob James care and so he gets three bucks .'<n trade and thafa the equivalent of 60 cups of coffee with the three bucks but he couldn't see it that way and so for sixty days now Joe gets his gulping free for nothing, and ain't that something and he told Several of the gulpers there would >be no "dutchlng" now for sixty days. I like those stop signs the city has put up at the main drag intersections and I'm in favor of raising the wages of all the city boys at least two bucks a week because on account of I got so darned tired of bumping into the bump that was screwed onto the pavement and which looks like a dirty pillow and that's hard on tires and all that pavement stop sign was good for Would be the scrap pile. Maybe the boys who Installed the new- stop signs should take a slant at the one by the Miller-Gllmore-McMahon )ank corner and sort of get -it in the right slant direction because on acdbunt of It's off about four de- Tees west by southwest and it eat riiltt of bM*<1 in u*f» round*.

A large crowd attended; A lunch ,WM Served. ^ Mr. and |tffl. Jake Vesterby and Mrs. Oma Granseth returned from a Week's visit Monday Which was spent at the M.Mton Dawsori home at Ogllvie, Minn. Mr. ahd Mrs. Victor Hermanson of Plover, Mr. and Mrs. Hermanson and Arlen of Albert Rolfe OTTOSEN NEWS and write English. President VI- ought to be straightened but I'm jars says that former members of ,he Hen Hussy Card club are welcome Into the new organization, 'n the meantime, the Board of Strategy Is now groveling In sack cloth and ashes, with competition so to speak. Went up to the daft boafd office Tuesday afternoon and offered to enl'st in the army and they wouldn't lave me because on account of Clark Scuffham said I was too old and Miss Fraser sort of hinted ny looks might be against me and o I've decided not to enlist in he army for the present and then vhen I visited with the nice girl lerks up there in.the office Clark vas all ready to throw me out Because on account of I was a uisance but I beat Mm to it and valked out on my own power, so o speak. But if I ever get into he army and after they make a general out of me I'll walk in there ome day and visit with the girls and dare anybody to throw me iUt. Wednesday afternoon there was a large bunch of-men in town fur- lished cars to take 180 school boys ut in the country because on ac- :ount of the boys were hunting crap and Ralph Miller had a group nd he climbed through a fence and guess it was the electric bght vires he tried to climb through and in getting away from the wires he tore his tie—yes, .'.t was his tie, and next time he tries that stunt he's going to put on shock absorbers. And Gene Murtagh had another bunch and he says a fence shouldn't bother anybody because on account of he sails right over 4t, shock or no shock, and Gene Hood had another bunch and he was in favor of asking the farmer to shut off the current while they were visiting a farm, and Luke Llnnan had a crowd and he borrowed a pair of heavy gloves and which served as insulators, so to speak, and I guess the fellows who took the boys out had a heck of a time but they put on a good job and found a lot ot scrap. Joe Bloom, coffee gulper and still in favor of the city boys more money—at least for the duration. —o— And Dr. Amunson told me' today that he wondered if I had $700 to bet and which I didn't have but Gene Schemel said he'd lend me the money providing I had collateral, whatever that is, and then I could make $700 . easy because on account of Dr. Kenefick and "Shum" will be sure to get their limit of ducks and with that $700 Td buy an interest in the banks and then I could borrow whatever and whenever I wanted to without worrying about collateral, and Dr. Amunson said he was going to quit worrying about whether I had $7, $70 or $700 from now on. Russ Waller writes me he'll accept my challenge to bowl and he threatens to beat heck out of me and which he ain't going to do, as good a bowler as I am. Seems my challenge to Duane Dewel and Oscar Oswald to take on at the bowling alley has been ignored and I'm wondering is it because Duane and Oscar think I can beat 'em or is it because I'm not in their class or what the heck. Anyway it'll be some satisfaction to beat Russ because on account of he's considered a good bowler and might make my 222 pins worry a bit. —0— I halve always wanted to live some place up high where I could look down on folks because on account of Tm a short half pint and always have to look up to people and so we moved into apartments over Steele's and I can now look down on Bill Steele, Joe Bloom, Jack Long, Herman Hauberg, T. H. Chrischilles, Fred Shilts, Bob James, John Kohlhass and even across the street, Earl Larson, Bill Barry( both oi 'em) "Dutch" Swanson, and yes, the bank crowd, and that's one nice thing about living upstairs I can look down on everybody while I'm up there, so to speak. But the heck of it is when I'm on street I have to look up to 'em and I should have the Upper Des Moinea move up a couple of flights so's I could look down on folks and wouldn't always have to be looking up to 'em. AVXT LUCY'S Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING . SEWING Webster City Freeman-Journal Frank Phillips, president of the Philips Oil company, says there is plenty of fuel oil available to serve all demands, and other oil producers say the same thing. So far as transportation is concerned, it requires much more car capacity to ship coal than oil, as it takes more tons of coal than oil to perform a like service, and if transportation facilities are overtaxed the transportation of coal will overtax them more than transportation of fuel oil. There are two oil pipe lines into Des Moines that furnish an abundance of fuel oil, thus conserving railroad and truck transportation. Not many homes or places of business have •changed from fuel oil to coal, and there is good reason. At the time it was announced that fuel oil would be rationed in this section of country, not much time was left to change the mode of beating; besides materials necessary could not be secured. The rationing of fuel oil ia more serious to home owners woo depend upon oil for heat than the rationing Of any other commodity. We can easily cut the U*e of gasoline, meat, rubber, sugar, etc., without great inconvenience, but to cut the use of fuel oil thirty-three and one-third percent is an entirely different proposition. If homes cannot be kept reasonably comfortable, especially where there are children and aged people, consequences may be quite serious, as colds are liable to be contracted with fatal results in many instances. The zoning plan is another crackpot idea. Zones will not help the situation in the least and will prove hardships to many. To give one tier of counties more fuel than the tier adjoining is unfair and unnecessary. Cut all sections the same percentage and fairness will result. (People who heat their homes with fuel oil have a right to complain and they should assert their rights. Rationing of oil in this section of country in no wise helps the war effort. On the contrary, it acts exactly in the reverse, as it increases the demand for transportation of coal, this further congesting transportation* and if transportation is congested, which some of the railroad managers and truck companies deny. Meatless days—by government proclamation! Already in Washing ton, before It is a matter of rationing, the people voluntarily have made Wednesday a meatless day. As we told you before, this column is necessarily written so far in advance that many things may happen 'before it goes to press—the war might even be over, and the things we aie proclaiming today m.''ght be'ancient history before these terse ideas are put into print. We say terse, because at the moment they are- -based on the happenings of the c'.ay. For instance, meatless days, a. id what the butcher thinks abou! it. The other day, in a facetious mood, we mentioned to our neighborhood butcher that we would consider ourselves very lucky if we had a side of beef stowed away somewhere just for the duration. We really meant to be funny, what with our own grandsons to the service and knowing full well that the butcher was. the father of two lieutenants, one in the Marines and the other in the Navy—and did he think it was funny? He did not! He forgot that in the good old days before the war we were numbered among his best customers. He proceeded to make us feel like "two cents worth of pre-war dog- meat" when he said, looking r'°ght through us as though we were perfect strangers, "Would you rather have a side of beef put away, Lad- Fes, or would you rather be defended by boys that are hungry—boys that have meatless days because we have made no sacrifice " There was a look in the man's eye that brought us up with a start— I an answer to the question of what to do about meatless days that makes it a pleasure to furnish suggestions for meals without meat, and here they are—recipes for substitutes, nourishing and wholesome —•.foods that we should serve our families with the patriotic thought that maybe somewhere some boy is having the meat that he needs and we can "jolly well do without!"
