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 York, 1918 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Paper Rationing Coming And now it is said that there is a shortage of paper and" that the rationing of news pr!nt is in the offing.: If this is true it may be blamed to a great extent on the government itself. The mails ot the country for a long time now have been so overloaded with government propaganda and useless government reports from the "Lovelife of the Bullfrog" down to silly labor statistics and long winded reports from the thousands of Washington: bureaus, that it has been hard to handle legitimate business and personal mail. The hundreds of million dollars worth of paper wasted by the government has been a scandal for some time. The Webster City (Freeman-Journal has something to say in regard to the excessive use of paper by the big dailies of the country:/ "Some time ago the FreemanjJournal suggested this .prospective shortage could lie -.prevented by requiring the big newspapers to reduce their mammoth Sunday editions by about one-third, pointing out that one of the big 'Sunday newspapers contained more paper than •woold be consumed in seven years by a small tiaily newspaper of ef.ght pages with a circulation of 4,000, printing 32,000 pages per day, 192,000 per week and 9,984,000 per year. "The Sunday issue of the Chicago Tribune on the 18th of this month contained 96 full pages and it is said that more than one mMlion •copies were printed. That, persuaded the Freeman-Journal to do a little figuring. "An issue of a newspaper with a circulation of one million containing 96 pages would aggregate 96 million pages. The Tribune's pages are very close to two feet in length, though not quite, but taking two feet as the basis to sim- plyify figuring, 96 million pages placed end to end would reach approximately 192,000,000 feet, or approximately 36,000 miles, severe such editions reaching beyond the moon or spanning the earth at the equator more than ten t^mes. "What is true of the Chicago Tribune in these respects is true of many other metropolitan newspapers, to more or less extent. It would be a real hardship upon such newspapers to be required to cut the size of their Sunday edi- tiorra by ono-th : .rd, but the consequent saving in news print would be enormous. Such a cut would still allow the Chicago Tribune, using the October 18 issue as a basis, to print 66 pages, which would be a very large-sized newspaper and would probably not reduce the number of readers to any considerable extent. If such Sunday newspapers did lose slightly in circulation income they would more than make up for the reduction in the saving of news print. And the saving of the paper is not the only 'important consideration, as the saving in transportation would be enormous, both in getting the .paper to the office of issue and in getting the printed product to readers. ter, which 'shows the theory of oil rationing a* explained by the Professor 6f Geology do*rii khere. "Iowa Ctty, Iowa, Oct. 23—Algona Upper De« Moines: Dear Mr. Haggard: "I was interested in reading the editorial 'Silly Oil Rationing*, and th.'s letter is Intended for Its author. Before going farther, let me say that up until a few days ago I had much the same opinion, but at a private luncheon last Tuesday, A. C. Tester, Professor of Geology, In a talk on this problem, presented angles which have made me change my mind. "He passed l.'.ghtly over the reasons popularly given for gas and oil rationing, real as they may be, and approached the 'subject from a geologist's and from a world viewpoint. He first drew attention to the facts that Britain's Near East oil supplies are now gone; that potentially great producers such as Australia, BrazM, Africa, and China, are undeveloped • and present great problems In exploration and development; that there Is a real possibility that the fields of Iran and Iraq will be lost to the enemy; and lastly, that all this means that the United States may be left as the sole oil producing area for the entire United Nations. Further, he 'brought out the fact that the discovery of new oil producing areas In North America during the last ten years has been markedly less than that of preceding years whereas efforts of exploration have not diminished, and the fact that the mean level of oil deposMs is constantly lowering (meaning simply that wells must be drilled ever deeper), which Indicates that petroleum is getting much harder to discover, to drill, and to produce, an'd also that after the excesses of the boom days, the United States may be on the way out as a major producer of petroleum. Even !.f great new fields are discovered by the scientific methods now employed, It will take much time for them to be developed. One more point: granting that appreciable savings may be made iby oil rationing, this saving, and perhaps more, will be used up in the processes of making synthetic rubber from petroleum, so that even with oM rationing our total consumption of oil will be ever greater during the war years. According to Professor Tester, it is the above reasons unfortunately not mentioned in news dispatches so far as I know, which is in the backs of the minds of the powers-that-be ta Washington. And looked at in this light, and fully approbating possible health problems and certain inconvenience, .'« oil rationing so silly? "It is my opinion that the government agencies handling this problem would do well to explain oil and gas rationing to the AmerVjan public from the above angles. It changed my mind, and I believe It would change the minds of others and bring about a better understanding and heart'er cooperation. Yours sincerely, Donald Parsons." Too Good to be True A Tulsa, Oklahoma, oil man has recently proved that the inner tubes .'.n automobile tires are entirely unnecessary, after driving his car more than 3000 miles over the rutted and rough roads in the oil fields of the southwest. This statement was made after Senator Thomas of Oklahoma, had told members of congress in Washington that he had learned that more than 150 Tulsa motorists were driving their cars without tubes. Tne Tulsa man, Glen Ames, who .'a Tulsa manager of the Phillips Petroleum company, said that during the long trip he had made without tubes, the casings had kept a normal pressure and showed no signs of air leakage. The Tulsa man is now driv'ng his fleet' of cars without tubes and none of them show signs of leakage of air. Is it possible that during all of these years we have been spending millions of dollars for inner tubes that were totally unnecessary? Of course, it is possible that the ordinary small puncture is many times saved by an inner tube, but certainly here is a field for further investigation. Tubeless tires would in a short time provide a tremendous stockpile of rubber for the government would pro- v',de a complete set of recaps for every motorist in the country, it is claimed. It is estimated that such a supply could be made available in less than sixty days. Well, well, who would have thought that it would take all of these years to find out that the inner tube was merely a faa? We live and learn, it seems. Should Hold Damaged Beans The farmers of northern Iowa are being urged bv the Iowa Farmers Un.'on to hold their crops for k more stabilized price. The farmers witn damaged soy beans from the September freeze, now ineligible for government loans, are advised not to sell at unreasonable prices. They are also advised to hold their 1938 and 1939 corn until loairs can be extended. The Farmers Union has presented both of these matters to the Commod'.ty Credit Corporation and Department of Agriculture and have had strong assurances of prompt action. The Union has asked that a strong support price, at which the government itself will buy beans be put under off-grade soysbeans. damaged by the September 20 freeze, as was recently done for wheat farmers. The Union has also asked for the extension of the 1938 and 1939 corn loans, which have been called for November first. The Farmers Union act'on will affect price levels on 2H million bushels of com held in northern lowu, and on 60 to 70 per cent of Iowa's record breaking fifty million bushels soy bean crop. Fuel Oil Rationing Now that the fuel oil rationing :s on all over ihe United States, discussion of the actual necessity of the rationing has brought out ideas we have not seen mentioned heretofore. In this sec- U»n where there is plenty of oil brought to this •vicinity mostly by pipe line, thus requiring litcU- tank car haul, it certa'.nly seems silly to make -as change over to coal, whicii o: course requires twice the transportation of oil and comes greater distances. Transportation was given as the main »cason for the rationing in this sect'on. Now it seems that some of the high brows have figured the real reason was the fact that a good share of the oil fields have fallen into the hands of our enemies and that we are liable to face a prolonged shortage. Donald Parsons, Algona young man, •who is attending the Iowa State University at present, has written this paper the following let- Opinions of Other Editors There's Njo Such Creston News-Advertiser: A Washington spokesman announces that the president "plans a flexible stabilization for labor." That is simply conversation and bunk, for there is no such as ' flexible stabi- 1'zation." If it is stable, it is not flexible; if it is flexible, it's not stable. • * * Willkie for President Webster City Freeman: Many republican leaders are very bitter toward Wendell Willkie and saying some mean things about him. We want to caution them to be more cautious with their criticism Willkie is very apt to be the next republican candidate for president and then these republican leaders will have to change their tunes Editor Miller and the Slot Machines From The livenr^ore Gazette Looking over the pictures of scrap drives in the newspapers, the truck being piled high with junk we came upon one that saddened—and later wmde us mad. Our madness was brought on by the sight of three truck loads of slot machines on their way to join the nation's scrap. Of course, slot machines are cruel and vicious .and unfair, and would pick a pocket if given a chance and there is no record of their ever do- ine a good deed, like helping an old lady to cross a street or feeding an orphan. Still I hate to see them outlawed and disappear, and the reason is that I want revenge. And my bones fairly ache to get back at those sullen iron boxes with bells cherries, lemons, plums and oranges. (For years in our younger days we wasted jnoney and time on unsuccessful "systemsr- of Seating these machines. Most of our 'systems- are undoubtedly familiar to the slot-machine play.«« of these late* days. One system that cost me goodness only knows many nickels and dimes was based on the at the smart time, the right time to play was after someone else had put a lot wto them without getting a pay-off, used to stalk the machines and players like pantner. The minute a player who had tot o* change without getting a« much two cherrUs cjult. I would pounce. This is a no-good "sysem." The lemons on the slot machine are inexhaustible. . ., , Another "system" was what might be callod the "indifferent" system. This called for walking to a machine, dropping in one coin and then walking on without sloping to see what happened. With a shrug of the shoulders, the player seemed to say, "It's a silly and foolish gamble. I reali/ don't care whether I win or not, 'but just tp be a sport Til throw away one piece of change. This was strictly a pose. No man who ever dropped in a coin and walked away while the innards of the machine were still whirling ever walked so fast or far that his ears could not pick up the joyous rattle of money dropping into the pay-on* slot. And so, those good old sucker days are gone forever, with the outlawing of the machines, but we will remember them however. Sure we all know that slot machines, were bad and made fools and suckers of a lot of us, but did you ever stop to remember that the things we remember most clearly, the moments jn our lives that are dearest to us are the things and moments when we took a chance, made a fool of ourselves or generally acted unlike a solid, sound, sterling specimen of the human race? Whoever entertained a crowd by telling them of perfectly logical behavior? How many people are loved for their virtues? RAVIHOS by REESE ALlHUofTM.-ALlHl.ofTh.t-. Not Mirth of Anything. Now that coffee Is About to be rationed the Algona Amalgamated Association of Gulpers Is becoming jittery and ?<t has been decided to hold a meeting land make protest to the OPA because on account of the members can get along without tires but It's going to 'be tough to get along without coffee for gulping purposes. Dr. Harold Meyer suggests that the Gulpers should take Guernsey highballs Instead of cpffee for their gulp'ong because on account of so far they haven't rationed milk yet" and no sugar Is required and In the long tun it is a better drink than coffee, so to speak. President G. D. Brundage Is about to call a meeting of the board of directors, Wm. Fuller, C. L. Rice and Adrian Sterling to take som* action about calling the meeting. "But what a mess It will be If we have to give up gulping. In 1941 there wore 65,000,000,000 cups of coffee gulped In the United States, Floyd Pierce sa!d so and maybe he counted 'em, I don't know, but that's a lot of coffee, and according to that Algona's quota should be about 14,000 per year so John Haggard says, and that would give every Gulper In Algona two cups" per day, besides the one they gulp at home for breakfast. If we can have the OPA fix the quota here at 14,000'Dr. Shlerk says he'll attend to the local distribution. Maybe after all it can be fixed so Algona Gulpers won't have to suffer because of coffee rationing. Bud Zender told me about a guy who had store snappers (th|af)s false teeth) and one day they came out of hfa mug and rolled down the counter in a cafe and 'bit a waitress and now I'm worried because on account of I've got a mug full of store snappers and suppose I'd be sitting at a banguet board some time and the store~ snappers would slip out of my mug and bite the host or hostess and that's another reason why I'm in favor of the menu having glue in tt because on account of It helps keep the store snappers where they belong and I never take 'em out at night for fear they might bite the dickens out of a radiator or something and they're safer in my mug and one member of the Board of Peers told me that he had store snappers and he had to tape his mag every night because on account of one tf.me they slipped out and bit -his Mrs. and It made her mad and his name is kept secret because she wouldn't like to have everybody know what biting store snappers her hubby had. I was up at Tltonka one nfght last week, a sort of political jaunt with Ed Breen and he's democratic candidate for congress In this district and Mike McEnroe, and he's the big shot In the KTossuth democratic organization and I felt sort of humble and meek and half- pint size along with those- two and Ed made a speech at Titonka and there was Frank Clark and he's the editor of the Top'e and which is always a good topic and I met Bill Stanzel and he's the democratic big-wig in that township, but he sure was nice to me as if I almost had good sense and come to find out Bill and I agree on most ev- eryth.'.ng even to gulping Jersey highballs and we've decided to vote for democrats this election and Bill told me (confidentially) that he read the U. D. M. and also my tounk which I dish out weekly and so far it hadn't even turned his stomach yet and which proves Bill can take It and next time he's in Algona I'm to pay for the buttermilk and which I will If I've got the nickel. "Dutch" Swanson and four otly ers went duck hunting Thursday and Friday I asked "Dutch", how many ducks he got and he said they got twelve and I asked him again how many did he get and he saf-d he thought he got 10 of 'em and he did it with his own hands and" a gun and I've just been wonder- Ing If the other guys didn't have any weapons or were they just rotten shots. Anyway I'm looking Into this 'because on account of the fellows who went w.'th him should at least have credit for the two ho didn't get. With election coming on today, by the time you read this column, that Is' If you ever read the junk, I'l' have voted because on account of I'm going to save my country early by voting as soon as the poll/) are open and the pencMs sharpened and the judges an clerks and counting board begin to draw down their wages and I ain't telling who I'm voting for but I know this vote who doesn't vote as I do and Tm going to kill some citizen's he'll do th'e same by me and that's what makes voting Interesting. And whoever's elected I'm for 'em and I hope you are for whoever's elected, too, and we'll hasten the victory which Is ours In the long run anyway. I hope you voted today, regardless whether I agree with you or not, I hope you voted, I don't kn»w whether Tm going to be so hot for living over Steele's clothing store because on account of here comes Bill and says It's up to me to sweep at last half the sidewalk every morning except Sunday and in the -winter time Tin to take care of half the snow and I ain't worth a darn shoveling snow. I may be able to make a deal wM;h Bill and have him do my share or maybe I can get a reduction in rent If I have to do the hard work around the place. I'm sorter confused •about it all because on account of I never did like that kind of work. —o— I went to a boxing show at the Academy the other night and I saw some of the boys do their stuff and there was blood In one bout but it was mostly from the nose and I've made up my m!-nd that I'll not take up boxing and •! sat beside Dr. Cretzmeyer and he said nobody ever broke any bones In boxing and I didn't want any bones broken- anyway and Dr. McCorkle was the time keeper and he hammered on a big bell with n claw hammer and broke the crystal on, Ehe watch, but not with the hammer, and If I ever take up boxing sports I want to be the timekeeper. iBut I had a lot of fun aid got my 55c worth out of the show, in fact the doctor and I both were wMIng to pay another two bits because on account of we'd had a good time, but neither of us had two bits and Father Sweeney wouldn't have taken It anyway because on account of he wanted us to go away happy and contented and which we did'. —o — Fin lofoWnr for a place to house the old :bus this winter because on account of I can't drive it upstairs and the Mrs. said she didn t want to clutter up the place w'th it and so If you know where I can rent a garage that's not over a mile from Algona where I can park the junk I'd be happy to get in touch with you.

His AUNT LUCY'S Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING If we were living under Nazi rule these days, a meat ration of two and one-half pounds per person per week would seem like luxury indeed! In fact, we are told oy our government statisticians that this -a as much as has been consumed on the average for the last ten years in this country, so let us not indulge in any grumbling on this subject. For well balanced diets, it is important for us to serve meat as often as we can, but on the other hand, so that everyone will have a chance to buy his fair share of the total meat supply, it is well for homemakers to cast about for meat saving recipes. For instance—think of the variety offered in the bean family. Canned or dried navy beans, kidney beans, limas, Mexican beans, e t c .—all are rich in iron, .phosphorus, VMamins B and G. They are a fair source of calcium and protein and are high in carbohydrates and energy value. Combined with bits of meat or cheese, or wtth m'Jk or egg, beans offer many ideas for "meat-jstnetching"' in dishes, both appetJzlng and economical.
