W. Haggard «—«— The Election In last Tuesday's election the republicans in Iowa and all over the country put the kibosh on ^"a^pub^^^ ected Tom Dewey, republican governor over the Roosevelt-J'm Farley candidate by over a ha.f million votes. This is the first republican governor That the state has had for the past 22 years. Practically all of the states showed wonderful ga'.ns tor the republicans, and congress added about fort> new republicans, making the house very close for he firs? time since the election of^°° sevelt ° Veegr . ten years ago. The result is regarded as a protest the induct of the war and the Nudea I', nun- _ _ many r e y7"democra"t""the~ present sheriff, was given a second term by a huge majority, denoting his pop- lar'ty His republican opponent was Alfred Schultz. Mrs. Clara Walker, democrat, was elected recorder over Sherman Potter, republican. H. W Miller, prominent! Republican attorney, was elected county attorney over Lawrence Wnke,, democrat. Mr. Wlnkel had made a fine record In that office for the past three terms and retires with the respect of the community. Dr. M U Bourne, republican, defeated Dr. R. A. Evans, democrat, for coroner. Dr. Evans had served several terms creditably as coroner. Mistakes Will Happen In mentioning the proposed rationing of paper last week this column clipped an editorial on the matter from the Webster City Freeman suggesting that the enormous amount-of paper used in the big Sunday editions of the big city dailies a typographical error changed the entire sense of one paragraph. The paragraph as we printed it read, "It would be a real hardship upon such papers to be required to cut the size of their Sunday editions. Of course the paragraph should have read, I- would be NO real hardship." How it got by the proof reader we can't say, and we read the proof. Perhaps it would be the easiest way out to charge the error to the linotyper, although tna copy we used contained the error. Opinions of Other Editors In the general, tout somewhat unexpected swing back to the Grand Old Party In bh<s state last Tuesday, Wilson, republican candidate for tf. S. Senator, beat. Herring, incumbent, by over 100,000 votes in Iowa. This was father unexpected In most sections of the state, though the fight was thought to indicate a close vote. Kossuth county went to Wilson with only 47 votes to the good. However, other republican candidates winning with nlng with only recorder, auditor, sheriff and one supervisor remain- Ing democratic, the county surely went republican w.'.th the general swing to that party In the election. It Is .generally conceded that there was more scratching done In this election than ( uny since 1932 whert the swing went democratic. Political experts consider the vote more or less a sort of protest, war conditions having much to do with the result. The swing back to the G. O. P. was pretty much general over the entire country, and more or less of this was expected, though not to so great an extent as returns indicate. We print herewith tables showing the election results by precincts. HEIKEN LOSES OUT IN REPUBLICAN FIFTH DISTRICT In the strongly republican fifth district P. J. Helken, incumbent supervisor, lost out to Myron S. Johnson, republican candidate. This was a three way fight. Heiken lost • to Johnson in the primaries and came out on the Independent ticket. Johnson defeated him by nearly two to one Tuesday while the democratic candidate trailed with only 183 votes. The vote: The Vote by Precincts.

Outside of that I'm for cooperating with all of the republicans elected although Td sooner they were democrats. Ain't politics funny? —o— But during the campaign I niel a lot of folks and talked a lot of polities and I guess it's sort o got in my blood because on accoun' of I've decided to run for mayor next spring and I'll make a good one. Tve got a lot of good ideas up my sleeve which would be ap predated by the voters. This ha been one of my favorite vote-get ting issues, that I'd have b'.g pipe laid under the pavement and in the summer time I'd have a cool ing fluid run through them am keep the streets nice and cool an< in the winter time I'd have stearr run through them and keep th streets nice and warm and clea of ice and snow. I find most every body in favor of that and I knov I'd get a lot of votes on the strengt of the promise. Then, too, I ca use the money which a mayor salary brings, but that's second sking you, wouldn't it be funny, as veil as dangerous to the climber? —p— I was one of the Interested tall- ers In the auditor's office tho other light when the election news began o come in and Ledyard was first and the third ward wasn't in yet at 4 a. m. and I ran up against a lot republicans and a few democrats and as the republican votes kept coming in and I sweat blood every time and goose pimples kept up a regular come and go on my hide Because I wanted a democrat to lave a chance once in a while and 'Duke" Kinsey about wore out his good left arm holding a telephone receiver and Leo Immerfall and Carl Pearson and John Bestenlehn- er sweat and puffed and scraped figures on lines on papers and Duane Dewel and I also scratched away and in comes folks from out in the voting territories and Bill Flaig and A. H. Hanna and Carl Ewoldt of Lone Rock came In and Bill couldn't understand why I hadn't been pinched long ago and he said no wonder they had to keep the windows open, darn him, anyway. And John Byson and Clark Scuff- ham came in about 3 'a. m. and they each had a sack full of votes And I bet Bill McDonald $700 that "Duke" Kinsey would he one of the winners and Bill took my bet and we couldn't find anybody in the place who would hold the $1400 stakes so we shook hands on it and Bill owes me 700 bucks but I expect I'll have to attach his car or his house slippers or something to get my money. All in all election day was a nice day for me, I voted, and I was not satisfied with the way things went but I'm for the new officers regardless and the Mrs. went to Des Moines to visit with her mother and Dad for a week, maybe two, I don't have to take a bath or wash my neck or wind the clock or put out the cal and I can snore as loud as I want to and can even sleep with my false teeth in my mug.
