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 Tfork, 1918 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Unselfish Service Praised The recent arrest of C. A. Phillips and George P. Hawcott of the Kossuth county rationing board has been generally condemned by newspapers of Tiothorn Iowa and now it seems that they are well on the road to becoming real martyrs. The formal hearing before the court was really a triumph for the two Kossuth county men, although the fact they had technically violated some of the red tape surrounding most government agencies, cost the men several hundred dollars each. It was shown that the men had not only profited not one cent but had spent goodly sums of their own money. When a man sacrifices his time and money for the things that go toward winning the war he should be honored instead of condemned. The Mason City Globe-Gazette each day prints a "Bouquet" addressed to worthy persons. One day last week the paper addressed the "bouquet" to the Kossuth county men, as follows:; To O. A. Phillips and George P. Hawcott of Kpssuth County—For the unselfish service they performed while on the rationing board. That they were persecuted and maligned by the over-paid, middy-minded brass hate in the state rationing set-up doesn't mean that their efforts and devotion to duty were not appreciated by their N)orth Iowa neighbors. The miserable treatment accorded them is the saddest commentary yet written concerning bu- reacracy gone mad in Mils state. A Plea for Farm Scrap Donald M. Nelson is stMl urging the farmers of the country to continue the intensified Scrap Metal Drive during the weeks remaining in 1942. The steel mills need more heavy scrap and the farmers are one of the best sources of this type of metal. The fanners are urged to give their utmost endeavor to provide more scrap. All salvage committees are >be. ! .ng instructed to continue to make available to farmers transportation and man power and will cooperate in every possible way. Mr. Nelson says the nation is looking to the American farmer. Kossuth county farmers it is thought have stMl on their premises a large quantity of scrap iron in old and unused machinery, and now that the busy time Ls over they will have more time to collect the iron and a call to the scrap eommitee will bring a truck to take it to the point where it w.Ml be at the disposal of the government. This is a patriotic duty that we fesl sure all will realize. Willkie Talks Too Much For some years we have thought that Wendell Willkie, the 1940 defeated republican candidate for president, showed his patriotism and love for his country by immediately after the election joining with President Roosevelt in the great war effort. In his recent trip to the warring countries he did much to show that the two great parties of this country wore united in the effort to prosecute the war to a victorious conclusion. It is true that he now seems to have had no information as to the launching of the second front in Africa, and several times made the statement that the English and Americans needed some "prodding" from tne people to stiffen them up. At the very moment he was making such statements the second front was about to, be launched. This should have warned him that perhaps he was talking too much about something of which he knew nothing. Now he has been criticizing the administration for accepting the wonderful aid that the French Admiral Jean Darlan has been able to give the allies by leading the Frenchmen of northern Africa into the camp of the allies and throwing all of his influence in the effort to defeat the axis. It was the smartest thing that we have done when we accepted h's aid, which doubtless saved the lives of many American and English boys and needless bltoocf- shed. It is claimed that Darlan had been flirting with the Germans, .but now he has at last A Littl* of Tnli - A LittU Not Much of Anything Second Place, General Excellence, Iowa Press, 1940 seen the l.'.gtot and thrown His fortunes with the allies. We would have been fools nol to accfept his aid. We have gladly accepted the aid of Russia, a country which we have riot admired heretofore. When you fight the devil use anything you can get your hands on that will nolp you win. Because we have accepted the wonderful aid that Russia has been giVing us is no sign that we will ever sanction communism. America wants nothing of France and after the war. is Won it will be free to organize its own government. In the meantime our sole interest Is in w.Mining the wnr. It may be that Wendell Is talking too much. Opinions of Other Editors A Bow to Clark Gable Mason City Globe-Gazette: The plaudits of the American people go to lean, .bronzed Second Lieut. Clark Gable of the United States army air forces. When he received his commission with several hundred other officer candidates of the Miami Beach air force technical tracing command school .it proved that there Were still men with red blood and fighting hearts In Hollywood. Clark Gable could have boarded the gravy train at his age. He might have had a cream puff commission. Instead, he volunteered as an air force private and was processed with .the run of mine candidates at the army bombardier school iir Florida. Lieut. Gen. E. H. Arnold, air force commander who congratulated Gable on completion of his eleven weeks' training, saw what army discipline and air corps training could do for a man whom the moves had kept in fighting trim. The man who made millions of feminine hearts beat faster as iRhett Butler in "Gone With the Wind" can grow again his famous moustache. Americans who admise sportsmanship and self- sacrifice congratulate Clark Gable on his air corps commission. He won it the hard way, and as he goes out to play his part in the biggest show of them all. we hope that his sh.'.p will always be on the beam and will bring him back alive. • * • Ward Tells How It Happened Eagle Grove Eagle: Getting down to brass tucks, the election results are easily analyzed. The people of this nation are fundamentally sound in their thinking and judgment. They realized that the goings-on for the past ten years could not continue indefinitely. The people just decided it was time to call a halt. They decided, even though belatedly, that a group of leaders who so signally failed in 10 years, to recognize the course they charted could result in noth'ng short of national chaos, could not be expected to do any better in attempting to win the war of all wars. They served notice on this group that they are not satisfied with the war effort to date and want a change of leaders, just as the army and navy promptly change their leaders when incompetency results in disaster. The great jury of the American people brings in a verdJct of "Not Guilty" for congressmen charged with wrong voting prior to Pearl Harbor. We were all guilty of bad guessing prior to the outbreak of the war, from the president on down. The charge that our congressmen are less patriotic than their detractors was not sustained. They (tho people) remembered that when the war toroke out '*i 1939 and after a half-hearted start on preparedness, the president told the congressmen to adjourn and go home because they would accomplish nothing by staying on the job except talk and spend money. Yes, we the people are guilty of anything that happened before Pearl Harbor that was detrimental to our national Interest. The results of this election mean that the war will be prosecuted with increased vigor unitt it is brought to a successful conclusion. • * * Tlie President's Salary iNorthwood Anchor: Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt has been opposed to' the President's idea of his salary being cut, the same as the salary of others, to not more than $25,000 a year net. How she stands on- the matter now she does not say but a few weeks ago she argued that aside from official functions the President has to pay for all the food eaten in the White House by visitors. There doesn't seem to be much por.nt to the argument. Even the humblest of common citizens have to pay for food eaten by guests. In addition the President not long ago inherited a million dollars from his mother which even with income and estate taxes deducted, should be quite a help in keeping the wolf from the door. » • • Selling at High Prices Clarion Monitor: A lot of farmers who are quitting farming are holding closing out sales with a view or turning their property .into cash while prices are high. At nearly every sale second-hand farm implements sell for more than new ones—because new ones can't be bought. It is usual for mach.'.nes that cost $160 to sell for $185. Continue this through a large sale and you have a handsome profit. But this is only temporary. If we have inflation (we are having inflation) dollars will buy less and less as the years pass, and it may cost more to replace the articles sold although you receive for them more than the original cost. • * * •18 Hours Proper Work Week American Municipalities: It is the height of folly to be howling about labor shortage when the great majority of our working men are working forty hours a week. Fortyeight hours a week would immediately increase the labor reservoir twenty per cent. Ninety per cent of the working men would be perfectly willing to work forty-eight hours a week during the war, or even more than that, but those in high authority in Washington seem to think that it .'a more necessary to pamper the organized groups of workers, than it is to win the war. If all the retired farmers and city land owners who have been trying to live off the sweat of some tenant on a farm, would go back to work on the farms there would be no farm labor shortage. It is reported that the enrollment at Iowa State College Is larger this year than ever. If these would-be products of higher education would all go back to the farm and work until the war i-s over, that would help the farm labor situation. A good many of the professors at Ames anJ other smaller colleges, were raised on the farm, and if they would quit their easy jobs and go back to work, that would help out the labor shortage. If we would all go to work there would be no shortage, and the sooner intellectual giants at Washington come to the conclusion thait people will work terr or twelve hours a day the same as the boys in the armed services, the better it will be for the country and the sooner we will win the war. Coddling Labor Grafters Louis J. Kehoe in Register Open Forum Just when the American people have some hopeful news from the war fronts and it begins to look like better days are ahead, they are robbed of most of the good news by new outbreaks by our blundering leaders in Washington. Apparently not even a war that involves directly the future of the nation and every person in it can deter our politicians from following through ui their program of remaking this country over to suit the power hungry bureaucrats in Washington. Even before the echo of the president's recent speech has died out, with all its^ eloquence and attempt to inspire the people to carry on with greater effort and even greater faith in h;.m as the very personification of all that is wise and good, we see him prostitute his war authority and power by furthering •the vicious program of his racketeering chums among the labor organizers. His executive order addressed to the Montgomery Ward Oo. directing them not only to pay the wage demands of the C. I. O. tout also to bow to their closed shop and labor check-off demands, .in effect is a direction to the company to keep books for the C. I. O. union and to collect out of the pay of their workers the grafting tribute exacted by the union leaders from the men who really do the work in that Montgomery Ward organisation. That is just what this un-American and now legalized holdup called the check-off system really amounts to. Our war perils are great, but the danger to our way-of-life and free enterprise in this country is equally imperiled by this attitude on the part of our leadership in allowing and encouraging labor racketeers to plunder indiuitry and levy a tribute from the honest toil of the men- who really work, but are bludgeoned into these racketeering organizations or not allowed to work. Even now these leeches are attempting to get a grip on the great farming industry and in Des Moines at this time a drive is on to get the Iowa dairy farmers under the John L. Lewis thumb. With the president giving aid and comfort to a crowd like that it is not to be wondered at, that congress has turned down his demand for the power to set aside such laws as in his judgment interfere or hamper his war plans, and he might have added cramped his efforts to--set up a new order in this country. Some of >ths stuff is getting too raw for even congress to stomach, especially a congress that has recently been thoroughly spanked by the voters of this country. The coffee rationing problem, so far as the Algona Gulpers are con; cerned, has been solved and Sherm Potter, member of the Gulpers, Is the solver. He suggests that gulpers make the.'.r own coffee at home, that they create a "share your coffee" plan with other gulpers, that they bring their coffee to work In a thermo jug and If It gets to a point where they can't get coffee up town, or If they have to pay a dime for It, they resort to the thermo jug. Not a bad Idea that Sherm has there, but how about the poor devils who don't have a thermo jug, or those iboys who don't have a wife to fix. the.'.r coffee for themt A meeting should *e called to Iron out these minor problems In Sherm's solving of the major problem. Now that winter Is really hero I made the rounds to every clothing store In town looking for a suit of red winter undies and not one of the stores had a single sutt because on account of I guess red undies have gone out of style even though they are warmer 'n other undies and I know because on account of I used to wear 'em. . Ed Greinert, north of Whtttemorel and Pete Hayenga, near Fenton, and Frank Clark, of Titonka, and John Bormann of fllverdale, wear red un- dies which they had saved up for winter and they don't care a hoot for style, It's comfort they're looking for. And here I am shivering and Melzar Haggard said he would look around ta the garret and maybe he could find me a pair which is nice of him because on account of he don't want to see me suffer, winter or summer. Darn this new style nuisance which prevents the clothing stores from having red undies to sell. —o— Had our first real winter day before Thanksgiving wtth sleet 'n snow 'n everything and I woke up Thanksgiving morning with something really to 'be thankful for because on account of I didn't have to get up and shovel snow and Bill Steele said he'd shovel my half for two bits and then I proved to him my lease didn't call for having to shovel and so he shoveled the front of the store himself and I helped him shovel tho rest of the walk and I still have my two bits and didn't have to shovel too much. And that is something to be thankful for along with a hundred Other things I'm really thankful for this year. But Bill Isn't so thankful so far as snow shovelng te concerned- says he can use the exercise all right but ho don't need that much. —o— Somebody told mej Wednesday that Ed Thaves was going pheasant hunting and because there was a lot of sleet he put on skates and easily got his limit because on account of the pheasants had sleet on 'em, too, and couldn't fly so good and Ed could overtake 'em. Now there's an Idea and I wouldn't do so .bad myself that way. It's cinch I never could get any pheasants because on account of I ain't a good shot but with a skate on I might go places, so to speak. —o— At first I thought Ralph Miller was mad at me because on account of he didn't send me the Iowa State Bank Ravings this week but he wasn't mad and he sent me his Ravings and I read 'em and they're better 'n my Ravings because on account of they ain't quite so nuts as mine and he talks a lot about money and I'can't talk about money _ because on account of I ain't gotj none. 1 There was Roy Brown, Roy Chrls- tensen, Duane Dewel, and Theo Hutchison and they were all gulping coffee except Duane and he sipped .'.t with a spoon and then I came along and had a Holstein highball and we decided that the coming legislature should only meet 45 days and they should only have $465 for It and Theo. said that was O. K. with him and Duane was in the best company he'd ever been in his life because on account of he sat between two Danes, me and Roy, and we'll have that editor spouCng Dane yet before long. —o— Today is the day when we can start buying our automobile license aird I'm asking is there somebody who'll lend me 14 .bucks till Christmas or is there some guy who'll make me a Christmas present of AVNT LUCY'S Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING While Christmas cookies are still a tradition, this year we are a bit restricted in our choice of ingredients. There are always substitutes, however, and even If sugar raisins, spikes, etc:, are scarce in some localities, we have collected enough recipes containing things :hat are available, so that you may find a variety of ideas to add to your own list. Simple decorations add a festive :ouch to Christmas cookies. They may be decorated 'before .being baked with blanched nuts, pieces of candied fruit, currants, or a sprinkling of white or colored sugar. When the cookies are taken from the oven Lhey may be sprinkled with color- From the Files TEN YEARS AGO The Bancroft murder case was still unsolved. The victim was a former inmate of the pententiary where he served sentence for shooing his cousin forty-two times. The cousin had recovered and author- ties were tracing him. Other clues ncluded several girls with whom the victim had been keeping company and it was also thought it might have been someone arguing about the gas pumps where Alvey was attacked. Last rites for the victim, William Alvey, were held in Bancroft and the crime remained the leading mystery of Kossuth county. * * * Theo. Hutchison, junior law student at the state university, won a practice trial decision at Iowa City. The cases were heard by Judge Herbert C. Ring of the eighteenth judicial district. » » » Tho high school football team had just been defeated 45 to 0 by Eagle Grove after a poor season. Things were different with the Algona Independents who finished with a 25-0 victory over Sutherland. The Indies team was composed of former high school and college stars such as Ken Mercer, Sheppard, Cosgrove, J. Moore, L. Moore, McDonald, Bradfieldl St. (John, Samp, Reed, 'Nordstrom, Ostrum, Lichter and Martinek. TWENTY YEARS AGO A run away Ford crashed into the E. A. Braund furniture store thence into another Ford and finally into the corner of the Algona Bakery. Wm. Grating, of Irvington, the owner of the car, took it to a garage where it was looked over and driven around town the same morning. * * • Death came to Ella Algona Blackford Clarke, the first child to be born in Algona. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Blackford and she lived here for more than fifty years. She was the cousin of Mrs. A. Hutchison and she had been an invalid for some years. She died in Chicago. * * * Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Coggrove were sleeping on the folding bed. Mrs. Cosgrove got up to get Harold a drink. The bed took a notion to fold up doubling Joe up like * jacknife.

Regulation snow shovels will 'be used and the snow will be shoveled Into the street, and points will be counted for the sides covering the most weight, the best handling of the shovels, the neatest piles in the street, and time elements. Mel Falkenhainer, president of the Ro- tarlans, has selected as his team Jim Pool, Andy Foster, Dave Leffert, J. L. Richardson, L. F. Rice, Doc Scanlan and Herman Hauberg. Th's team will match Mel Griffin, M. G. Bourne, Roy Hutzell, Dick Norton, Lloyd (Muckey, Albert Granzow and D. R, Martin,, the team selected by Frank Zender of the Kl- wanls. The contest will prove 'nter- esting and probably highly entertaining and if it is decided to charge an admission the. proceeds will go to the Red Cross. Personally, I think it's a sin to bet money •but I'm Inclined to take a chance on my future and bet two bits on the Rotary crowd having an edge on the Kiwanis exercisers. I await the next snowfall all a-jitter, so ro speak. Dr. Crotzmeyer has been rather inclined to be a little miffed at me ever sf'nce I found out that a Gink was not what ho thought it was and I explained it to him and so when he met me on the street the other day he says, Hello, Peewee." And I dug up the dictionary and he's wrong again because on account of a peewee is an Australian bird and Tve never been in Australia and if I'm to ; be likened to a •bi-rd it should be a stork because on account of there are a lot of 'cm in Denmark. I got mixed up in the dog show here Friday and I didn't know there were so many dogs in Kossuth and I came the closest to having my shins chawed and my fingers chaw- ed and even my ears chawed by canines which the kiddies dragged or carried and if I never knew anything about dogs I do now and I never saw so many near dog fights nor heard so much growling i'ii one place before in my life In fact for an hour I led a dog's life because on account of I was one of the judges for speed and beauty and weight ard tricks 'but I had to leave it up to the other judges because on account of I'm so dogged dog dumb, but John McDowell and Wm. St. Clalr and Eddie Wittkopf they knew dogs and I stood around and shivered and shook scared stiff some big hound might take a hunk out of the calf of my other wise perfect leg. But that didn't happen and the kids sure had a swell time.
