But the way we understand It this law was passed -by the southern states with !<n< tent to prevent the negroes from voting, and it has worked out that way. Now that ao many of the southern negroes are In the army there has been a loud uotcry that they were being treated Unfairly 'by not being allowed the vote. To our mind— the argument sounds rather silly, as It applied to both whites and blacks. But in time of war the negroes have always proved their loyalty and of course should Ibe allowed to vote the same as the whites. The southern states made a strong fight agaJ.nst the proposed law, but could muster only 84 votes against the measure. All Iowa members voted for the measure, but Gtlchrist, who was absent or not voting. Hard Times Coming Frank Kent, the columnist and a great critic of the present administration in Washington, quite often has some constructive criticism that fa worthwhile It was Kent who first called attention to the congressmen voting themselves pensions lust spr.'.ng which caused such an uproar and universal condemnation by the public. It will be remembered that the pension bMl was passed by both houses of congress and had been signed by President Roosevelt, before the congressional pension joker WM discovered by Kent.

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 "2ork, 1918 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Silly Oil Rationing There seems to be a general feeling that thy rationing of fuel oil in this section of the country is unnecessary and It is considered that the reason for the ratlory.ng, lack of transportation, is rather flimsy. . We are advised to convert our oil burners into coal burners, which certainly sounds silly when one stops to think that the oil is brought to this vicinity toy p:<pe lines and requires little transportation Ther eare no prpe lines to transport coal and it must all be brought in railway cars and being more bulky than oil it would require considerably more transportation. There is plenty of fuel oil and it seems that lack of transportation is the only reason for the rationing at least in this section. Many doctors are warning that the resulting cold rooms will doubtless cause much sickness. Dr. H. A. Smith of Corectionville, Iowa, is one of the doctors who have published complaints. Dr. Smith says: "... The restricted -use of fuel oil in a section of the country where there is an abundant supply and pipe lines nearby seems entirely without reason. "When one speaks of limiting the temperature of our homes to 65 degrees M shows that they know nothing or care nothing about the requirements for good health. Where the very young, the aged and the sick are concerned this is especially absurd. "The idea of converting oil burning furnaces and stoves not coal burners is likewise albsurd. Where could one obtain the necessary supplies, especially for the older furnaces, and how about the extra cars it will require to haul that coal? i t "Moreover, about the time such conversions were made we would very likely have a i rationing of coal, or strikes by the mr.ners •who could take advantage of a coal shortage to .obtain personal gains. "We few doctors who are left on the job are asked to keep up the health standard to the best of our ability and we are trying to do I so, but we will be tempted to give up in disgust if much more of this sort of rationing is attempted. I "We lowans are ready and willing to do our bit in the war effort. We will gladly accept a reasonable ceiling on farm produce, provided a like ceiling :s placed on labor, and believe me, there will be 'doings' if this is not <lone and done soon, but restrictions such as this fuel oil cut !a going a little too far, and we certainly do not need such regulations to let us know that we are at war."

The official figures gives the number of civilians on the payroll as of August first as 2627,932. On that date the office of price administrator, hardly a year old, had 25,938 and it is 'figured by this time the number has reached 30,000,. and the grand total 2 500,000. Every board and .bureau is clogged. He says that there must be over 60,000 in excess of what is needed or can be used. These men and women who have no useful work to do, Interfere with those who have. This has always been the nudeal idea of spending all you can of the taxpayers' money. 'In another column of the same paper, Editor Harvey Ingham of the Des Moines Register says that "the American people, and all the others for that matter, should be centering th«ir attention on the plain fact that war under the present day conditions opens the door to national banK- ruptcy for everybody." Senator Herring Always Sensible United States Senator Herring, who has always shown that his feet were on the ground, has again proved that he is not liable to become hysterical in regards matters concerning the war effort. Senator Herring, in a newspaper interview last week said that he is not in favor of drafting the young boys of 18 and 19 years of age for army service. He said that later he might change his mind, but 'he would have to be convinced of the necessity. Of course the question is debatable. President Roosevelt thinks that the boys should be drafted in order to provide an army of ten mil>;on men. Senator Herring thinks that a well-equipped army of five million men is preferable to ten million poorly equipped. He thinks that the mil 1 - tary leaders are too interested in having a great big army. He says that it is more essential to maintain supply lines back home by keeping agr'- cuiltural workers and those engaged in war industry where they are most needed. Senator Herring is always sensible and practcal. He has followed President Roosevelt in most matters concerning the war, .but sometimes it looks as though he is more practical than the president. It certainly would be a catastrophe to retire him from the senate at this critical juncture, for any man who has no experience in Washington, however good a governor he has been. Opinions of Other Editors Hits the Bullscye Jack Hammond in The Decorah Journal: If the Democrats are half as bad as Lou Gardner, Iowa Republican publicity man, tries to paint them, they should be deported from the United States. If the Republicans are as inefficient as Archie Koop, Democratic publicity man, describes them, they should be in hospitals for treatment. Suoh tirades do not make for good government. ' If the only way Democracy is to work is to have mud-slinging conducted the way it fa being clone by the publicity men of both parties in Iowa this year, then we better revise our governmentil plans—and we don't mean by dictatorships. If the rotten charges that are hurled by these two political writers were printed in some Southern states there would be plenty of slander and libel suits if not lynchings. Surely they don't work for national unity needed to win the war. * * * Boys Arc Staking Their Lives Twenty-five years ago Edward Markham was editor of the St. Peter (Minn.) Herald. The night before he enlisted in the U. S. army in 1917, h= wrote the following article for his paper which is still regarded as one of the greatest war bond sell- Mie articles ever written, says the Austin Herald: "I am a Mother's Son.

This practically d un- enfranchised the negroes as it seems few of them were able to raise money enough to pay the poll tax Of course 't worked in the same manner oir the white population of those states. The requirement of poll tax was also used by unscrupulous poll- Protest of Useless Fuel Oil Rationing Taken from The Humbtoldt Republican "The argument is presented and has been used by the president in h?a public statements and in his statements to me personally tha,. while there is no shortage of motor fuel in most of our country, gasoline rationing is necessary to conserve the rubber supply on the cars. "This argument has some plausibility and '.t also has some basis of truth, but such a situation would not have existed had our government agencies been alert to consider the nation's needs rather than the needs of certain special interests In the matter of produc- RAVIHGS by RE£S£ A Little blThli •- A Llttlt of Thai •• Not Much of Anything Attge Mwwen another Dane, cjune In and bought some "No Hunting" signs and he's going to tack 'em up on his iplace but he said I could come out any time and hunt my head off because on account of he knew I couldnt h'.t the side of a barn and not only that he said he'd have the Mrs. bake ebelskyver for me and which she can do swell and so I'm going out to Aage's place and do some hunting If I can borrow a gun from somebody. And a little later In comes Tony Sorensen, also another Dane, and he talks it, too, and I found out he wasn't so bad a singer either and we're going to get up a Dane quartet with about twelve members and Jens Sorensen Is going to sing bass and Tony says Jens '« good enough to sflng bass alone In a choir of a thousand and that's going some. And I found out there are several Dane girls In this town married to professional men and maybe I could get up a mixed Dane choir to sing something different than the one about Vor Sultne Kat. —o— And BUI Haggard has about decided to take up Dane so he >;an understand what we Danes talk about when we have our sessions in the office here. Bill thinks we might be talking about him, which we ain't, but he's always thought he'd like to visit in Dane with Madsen and Hanson and which he says if all Danes are as good as those boys he could almost join the Dane church. And before I forget It I want you to understand that if I ever speak of the Board of Peers as the Board of Beers it will be because on account of a B slipped in Instead of a P and those boys aren't interested in Beer, they are just busy trying to out-talk, out-guess, out-smart, out-argue the Board of Strategy. And now comes word that at Sam's another Board is about to be organized and its main activity has ( to do with saucers and how to eliminate the holes in doughnuts and still call 'em doughnuts. Of all things. I'll have to look into this. Dr. Kenefick and Gaylord Shumway are pretty much worried about what the duck hunting season will have in store because on account of the creeks and .ponds and sloughs are so dry and it seems that the ducks are a sort of water fowl and so it looks like they'll have to get some duck calling instrument of strong amplification so the clucks in the 'bigger lakes can hear ! em and the boyS can just get on top of the court house and blow their calls and the Mallards will come flocking in from northern lakes and even Storm Lake and which will save the boys much traveling, so "Shum" tells me, confidentially. sort of Got a big legal looking document from Governor Wilson this morning and it's got the state seal on it and everything and from now on Tm a Notary Public and can do a lot of swearing for folks but not at 'em and I showed the document to Jim Murray and he said "looks like a pardon" what'vx> you ever done? and I ain't stole a horse for so long and I didn't need a pardon because on account of I always live right. But when it comes to swearing for the other guy fni now permitted by the state to do It. Tint kinder swelled up about It, too. —o— Hugh Raney Joined die Board of Strategy twice this week and he voted to elevate Louis Thoreson to the presidency "of the Board and Garret Welhausen voted against it and I kinder thought maybs Bob Loss would have liked the job and Fred Shllts wants to be treasurer. But now since the Board of Peers has been organised It's going to be tough going fdr the Board of Strategy because the Board of Peer* is making a reduced rate on memberships. George Hagge Is In favor of reducing the Strategy rate and may be that would be a smart thing to do. Lawrence Winkel attended a session one day recently and then for a week he was sick at home but he doesn't exactly blame the Board for that. Henry Bonnstetter and Bill Meyers, both of Whlttemore neighborhood, were In town the other day and they were standing In front of the stairway to my place and at first I thought Henry was going to hit Bill because on account of he was waving his arms but It wasn't a fight and I asked Henry was he acquainted In Algona and he said he knew where the jail was and the Milwaukee depot and Bill said he knew where the court house was and he was going to look up the cockroach there some day and so, being acquainted here I left both of 'em on the Main drag and I guess they got back home O. K. Talk about figures, there's Bill Pech, 421 N. Hall, he figured out the football winners last Saturday and so he got a year's subscription to this Youth's Companion free for nothing and I hunted up his card and there it was—he also guessed right a year ago and has been getting the U. D. M. a year now because he was a good flguror last year. He must know his football pretty good, at that. —o— m be glad when they pnt on gasoline rationing—not because of the rationing—but because then when a speeder Is picked up they can take his rationing book away and that* II tickle me .because on account of I ain't got no time for (he bird who's in a heck of a sweat to get somewhere and nothing to do when he gets there and I am holding my bus down to 35 p.er. If you want to see some speeding just take a hike out on the highway after 10 bells of an evening. Brother, they go by you like a bat out of (where fs that place?). So TO be glad when the authorities can take the gas away from the speeder, now a potential murderer, because on! account of his old tires. And I asked Boy HIcMafion was he going hunting ducks the other' day and he said h« .wasn't because on account of he hadn't lost any ducks and even if he had he wouldn't bother hunting 'em. And Ed Capesius is heart-broken because on account of he's lost his gun and you just can't hunt ducks without a gun unless you could sneak up on 'em and put salt on their tails which Fm told tames 'em and you can. take 'em home with you: without shooting 'em.

J>£CORATIN£ DRAMAS AUNT UUCY9 Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING •Let it be said ut the beginning that no one m this vicinity wants a single favor nor do they want to avoid a single hardship that is necessary for the winning of the war. They want to g'.ve and serve and deny and do their very best to make our arms victorious and our forces dominant in the world of today But they do feel that while they are giving so freely of their rights and earnings and blood that they should be spared all sacrifices that arc unnecessary. We feel that some of the people in charge of certain government affairs are laying penalties and hardships on them that do not further war efforts and have no effect except to irritate and annoy and sometimes cause unnecessary suffering, we zeei that certain individuals have convinced themselves that the more they can make the people suffer the more they will respond to war demands. We feel that this is a mistaken thought founded in ignorance of the minds of the people, and that such acts will in the end result in disorganization suspicion of our representatives, and a general belief that the men at the hub of the nation are not age o f f ue l ' "' turn of rubber. , "Even though there is some plausibility of argument in the rationing of gasoline, I have yet to hear any sound argument for the rationing of fuel 'oil for heating our buildings in other sections of the country."

Something that is plentiful, nourishing and cheap, and what is it? Vegetables—Fall vegetables, raised in our own gardens. Beets, carrots, turnips, sweet potatoes—root vegetables which seem a bit heavy for summer menus, but now that the days are becoming crispy, these are the "filler-Ins" that we need to round out our meatless meals. Vegetables which contain the nutritious elements as well as the bulk which is no necesaais» to a well balanced menu. There are many interesting ways to prepare these every-day products, that even the fussiest members of our vegetable haters will change their minds after we have added a bit of glamour to our recipes. After all, why do we collect cook books, unless we use them when an occasion arises for something special? For instance, the chapter on Southern Cookery really tells u? things about sweet potatoes, and if we browse a little further—well, here there are: Sweet Potato Cutleta 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes IMs cups chopped nuts 1 cup fine bread crumbs 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon milk 2 tablespoons peanut butter 1 egg, beaten Eggs and crumbs for "crumb ing" Combine sweet potatoes, nuts, : cup bread crumbs, salt, milk, peanut ibutter and 'beaten egg.
