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 ?ork, 1918 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard And Now the "Black-Out" The seaboard towns and big cities of the country are not going to be allowed to get ahead of Algona in the "black-out" game. It has been do- creed by Fred Timm, commander of the Kossuth County U. S. Defense Corps that on next Monday, December 14, the city of Algona shall show no sfgn of light for 20 minutes, from 10:00 o'clock to 30:20. The fire siren will sound at ten o'clock and also at the end of the twenty minute period. The city council has passed an ordinance making the black-out mandatory and providing for a hundred dollar fine in case of non-compliance. Most people of course are inclined to regard the black- cut in an inland town like Algona, where there are no munitions plants or military camps, as more or less of a joke but we must go along with the national war effort, and it might turn out that that these black-outs are not so much jokes as they may now seem. It has been suggested that many of the young folks who enjoy blackouts about that time of the evening especially if they are in company with their sweetie, will seize the opportunity to hold "black-out" parties and so make the war measure a pleasure instead of a hardship. Liquor and Cigarettes The prohibitionists are again becoming active and are striving to ban Ixjuor from the vicinity of army posts at least. During the first world war they stampeded the people into adopting the prohibition amendment to the constitution which resulted in the greatest era of lawlessness and bootlegging that the country has ever endured. Cigarettes were also under the ban and ! >t used to be that they were only smoked in houses of ill fame and like questionable resorts. If a young man was seen with a "coffin nail" in his mouth, he wns stamped as a bum or worse, and as for the girls they were branded as scarlet women. The more the good people tried to reform them the more cigarettes were smoked and liquor drank. Today the "reform" seems to be working : <n reverse. The girls are smoking and drinking and everyone thinks It smart to fond the boys in the service a carton of cisvircttes. Now, ten years after the prohibition amendment was repealed, and liquor selling haa become- more or less general, it seems that the people are more satisfied with the way liquor is handled than they were during the bootleg era. A recent Gallup Poll showed 64 percent voting wet. Even the prohibitionists are beginning to understand that ! 't is hard to regulate the personal habits of their neighbors, and prohibition mostly meanj that all liquor profits will be absorbed by bootleggers instead of government taxes. Prohibition is a beautiful theory but it faMs in practice. African Invasion Losses Last Thursday, almost a month since the invasion of Africa by the allies, for the first time it was made known that there were some serious losses of ships from the huge armada. At first the anounccment was made that of the 850 war- shi'ps and transports makng the long trip to Africa, only one was lost, and the invasion fleet was supposed to huve performed the greatest feat known in all history. Thursday's announcement admitted that the 'United Stales lost five transports sunk and five other naval vessels damaged. It has never been announced how many United States ships were in the armada. Even now it is not known the exact extent of the U. S. losses, and it may be that other losses are- being held back. It is not known now whether the transports lost were loaded with troops or that they had been disembarked. Submarines and torpedoes were the cause of the sinkings. At the same time our icxsses became known, the Engiish losses were announced in the London parliament house, and it became known that their losses were even more serious than that of the United States. A total of nine ships went down i-n the landing operations, including the British aircraft carter Avenger and the British destroyers, Brook and Martin, a Netherlands destroyer, twd cutters, a m'nesweeper, a sloop and an anti-aircraft ship. Even with these belated naval losses acknowledged it is claimed that the expedition fared much better than had been expected. The great expedition sailed In three parts. The ships from the United States coming directly from America landed on the coast of Morocco from the Atlantic. The The other two from England landed from tho Mediterranean on -the coast of Algiers. It may be that the ship losses were surprisingly small but it seems to us that if it takes so long for us to hear of our losses it will soon be impossible for us to believe reports of any major engagement. However, we think there are few that are disposed to be critical in these matters, and all are Inclined to take it for granted that our naval and military leaders are doing the best they can. What wo want is action and no on can say that we have not been getting aotion In the past few weeks. Opinions of Other Editors Henry Lacks Common Sense Nbrthwood Anchor :i Vice President Henry Wallace gets a little wilder all the time. He asserts that the result of the recent elections doesn't mean any protest at all against what !$ and has been going on iir New Deal circles. He intimates that those who voted were mostly farmers who do not understand politics and other persons fairly well-to-do and independent who, as he hints, are always Republicans and against the common man's welfare. He is also sketching a new democracy to become popular In the United States after the war- something not entirely unlike the Russian new "democracy of the common man." Mr. Wallace personally is are extremely likable man but as a representative of Iowa he isn't adding to our reputation for common sense and sound thinking. • • • Inflated Wages Ruinous Northwood Anchor: Not long ago the Creston News-Advertiser called attention to the fact that in Iowa "we have thousands of youngsters two or three years out of high school who are now making —no, not making, but drawing —up to $100 per week. After the war they will be lucky If they cnn command a wage of that amount per month. Will they accept it—wMl they organize strikes and make trouble, or will they balk and loaf? We have now several million workmen—none better in the world — that no matter how skilled they may be are drawing two or three times as much as they are worth— as much as they can earn. What will their reaction be?" The News-Advertiser opens a subject that may well be given great consideration. Boys of no more than sixteen- years are drawing weekly wages of $60 to $75 a week for forty-four hours' work at a certain huge government plant in Nevada, Some truck drivers in the employ of contractors building a huge Kaiser steel mill in southern California have been paid as much as $104 per week for forty-four hours' work and a little overtime at price and one- half. A fairly average straight week's wage is $92. That for simply driving a dump truck and occa- s'-onally pulling and pushing a lever within reach of their hand as they sit on a cushioned seat. What is going to happen when these highly paid work-men nre asked later to work for a fair price of $30 or $40 a week? As the Creston editor says: "Our first job Is to win this war. But after that has been accomplished we wMl have some economic battles aheau of us that may be more difficult to adjust than the final peace terms. It will not be all beer and skittles after the last gun is fired. For almost ten years we have been building up a system in this country that means future trouble." » » • Loafers Should be Drafted Webster City Freeman: Every town in Iowa, and in every other state, has a number of loafers who do little or nothing to earn a living, although physically able to work 8 or 10 hours per day. There is a shortage of common labor in most towns, but these fellows prefer loafing around the pool halls and other places where their presence is allowed. Some of these easy-going, good-for-nothings have families, but spend their meager incomes on beer and liquor, mak.'.ng their wives earn the scant living upon which the family exists. Uncle Sam ought to pick up these gentlemen of leisure who are physically able and train them tdr army service, makinc: real men out of them who would become helpful to instead of drags upon their country, wh'-ch is much too good to them. It would require some little time to ,get the booze out of their blood and the laziness out of the!-r oones. But after the period of transformation expires, these men will thank Uncle Sam for what he nas done for them, and will be glad of the opportunity offered to become self-respect'.ng citizens, rendering some worthwhile service to the general welfare. * » • Rationing is Irritating Eagle Grove Eagle: No one objects to any sacrifice wh'-"h will aid the war effort. But there is a strong difference of opinion on just how gas ration- Ing where gas is plentiful will help win this war. It should be remembered that the war is being helped by the people who keep on working, save and buy war bonds and stamps. Gas rat'oning in the middle west will cause thousands of filling stations to fold, throw countless thousands out of employment How are these people going to keep up their defense bond buying and contribute to the various war drives when they are forced out of business and have lost their jobs By observing the 35 mile per hour law, ordinary driving can bo kept up for another two years. By that time, synthetic rubber should be supplying our necessary needs. If it is not, then cars would gradually eliminate thmeselves from the picture. However, limiting gas to 4 gallons per week in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, California, Wyoming and other oil producing states, just does not make sense. Already refineries are closing down because of too much gas- olise on hand. There is a gas surplus. Transportation in the middle we.st is not a problem because of the network of pipelines. In two years, the war may be over. Using horse sense in what !fl to be rationed wMl leave this country in much better condition after the shooting stops. Fat Jobs Will "Peter Our Webster C!ty Journal: Employes who are leaving their employers to accept jobs at higher pay may regret their action when the war is over ami there will be more men than jobs. They will find their places they have deserted have been filled with others and their former employers will be in no position to give them wo:k and would not br- inclined to do so if they could. Better wages for a brief period would not compensate for the loss of steady employment. Red Tape Fatal To Business Decorah Journal The greatest danger to the success of the war effort, as we see it, is the infernal, confusing aird unnecessary red tape that surrounds so much of the government effort and takes the time? of government employes who could be used to greater advantage in other lines. Newspapers have been called on to donate time, money and effort to promote the sale of war bonds, publicize scrap drives, help the Red Cross, create enlistments for the armed forces and do other patriotic work. Newspapers give legitimate publicity not only willingly, but freely. As a re- ault, newspapers have been classified among the basic, essential war industries. Last week Chairman Donald Nelson telegraphed the Journal and other newspapers an appeal to have the scrap drive continue through 1942. Yet a WPB employe writes to a patriotic western printer who patriotically offered to convert h's plant in part to war purposes by manufacturing gaskets ith die-cutting equipment, according to Graphic Arts Monthly, as follows: "If it vatt, the local <WP)B> »««e should be able toTft you In touch with centwctow Interested in your faeilite*. If it can't perhaps you will bo making' your greatest contribution to the war by closing your plant for the duration." By this action, some incompetent, ill-chosen government employe is trying to tell a patriotic American to give up his business, representing probably the savings of his lifetime and those of his parents. Even Hitler would ask no greater sacrifice. If that is the kind of a government that American youths are giving up careers for and risking their lives for at the front, they want to know about it. There is going to be Hell to pay if the boys come back victorious and find that individual businesses have been destroyed by the government and that there are going to be no jobs or opportunities to own your own business in a free America. Such autocratic dictates by government employes —if enforced and carried out—would lead to a revolution in this country. Huge corporation? have gone to court, pleading their cases and received 'ucreases in rates so that "their property would not be confiscated." Surely American business men should have as much fair play. RAVINGS by K££SE A Uttlt of Thl» - A Littlt 6f Thai Net Much of Anything MPPLING BHYTHM This ration business gets my goat, at times Pm dumb as nl get-out, and whether in a car or boat, I know hot what it's all about. My sugar has been rationed long, no more of jells or canning sweets, and taffy's now but empty song e'en Santa claims he's licked complete. (My coffee now Is ratfoned too, this cheering cup they me deny and gulping, sllrp.'ng is taboo, my protest rises to the sky. And now they take my gasoline, four gallons weekly is my lot, I should convert my bus to steam, and thumb my nose at ration plot. I can nc longer drive my bus, o'er hMl and dale in weather fair, I'm most Inclined to up and cuss, and rant and rave and tear my hair. No tubes and tires may I possess, except the ones about worn out they'd have me junk my car I guess, and buy a bike to get 'about. The meat they now assign to me, brings on another tearful wail, they shorten liquor for a spree, and clip a hunk from nighty's tall. They ratlott this, they ration that, .they ration undies, zlp- ser pants. i.h<>y 'ration sock and ihlrt 'and hat, they ration fiddling 'or the dance. It's ration here, It's ration there, It's ration every wak- •ng hour, a burden seeming hard to bear, brings out our disposition sour. But we have got to fight to win, our boys are targets now for Jap, and I'll take ration with a grin, If Nip- txmese 'twill help to slap. If "rat- on" is the thing to do, ?>f "ration" helps to win the war, the thing ihat's first for me and you, is "ra- ;ion" till all h *s froze o'er. —o— And sitting up against a counter were Jim Pool, D. H. Norton. Hutchison & Hutchison, Bert Palmer and Gene Scheme!, all gulping, and came in and asked 'em "Who's <*olng to buy me a gulp?" and they ill answered in unison and concert ust like they'd been practicing it or a week, "I wMl. Give him a drink of water." And was I embarrassed and was my face red and bought and paid for a Dane Heres- 'ord highball. Darn those guys anyway, I'm inclined to think hey're tightwads about their gulp- ng since gulping has been rationed. —o— John Steler from over Whittemore way was in the other day and le wanted to pay for the U. D. M. jecause on account of he can read and come to find out he was paid up way into the future by virtue •f his son, Kenneth, having been a good football guesser and at first I thought maybe John was going to stop the paper and get the cash re- 'und but he didn't and so we're still jood friends and then this last week Kenneth again won the guess- ng prize and John says he is figur- ng on Kenneth going into the guess- ng business and make a lot of money und the Steier family could retire. Now, there's something. Leo Sabln was In the other day and he's a new subscriber to this jreat .family nfewspaper and he '•ves out on 18 west of town arrd he talked to town and doesn't give a durn about the "A" rationing because on account of in the winter- ime he can put on skates and coast ^o town and in the summer time le care borrow a skooter and slide o town and he can always hitch hike back home and he's solved the rationing problem 'and maybe some ime he'll let me borrow h.'a "A" >ook for a couple of gallons, so to speak. .— —-o— Hi White was home Jon furlough ast week and I met him and you'd never think that one time he was county chairman for the republicans arrd he sure looked swell in ils uniform and he forgave me for jelng a democrat and said one of those days I'd Improve mentally and he sa'd the boys In the service weren't asked whether they wer republican or democrat or wha church they prayed In and they were all iiftent on getting this mess with the Axis cleaned up and I take off my hat to Hi, he was always n'<ce to me, lousy and table dembcrat that t have been. But It was good to have a visit with H.' and I was glad to see him, bill Toto was the most tickled of all 1 guess. Now that winter Is here watch the clock on the bank because on account of It Is subject to winter chills and the east face doesn't always jibe with the west face and the clock f<s sorter a half hour time saving so to speak. I've suggested to Ralph that he give the clock some Smith Brothers cough drops to keep its two faces sort of synchronized. And there there's Bill Barry's big thermometer which sometimes goes hay wire although Bill says he's had it fixed but It may be 20 below and the clock only shows 5 below and that fools a guy. Several times last winter I hurried to change into winter undies because the thermometer showed 20 below and it was only about zero and I suffered and perspired and scratched my hide all day because the winter undies were too warm. I repeat, let's keep a close watch on the vagaries of those two public registrants of time and weather. —o— There seems to be a lot of mpncy changing hands on the Rotary- KiwanJs snow shoveling contest and the odds seem to favor the Rotarians somewhat, not too much, just a shade and it may be because the Rotarians are pushing the event for publicity's sake. Frank Zender, head of the Kiwanis, insists I am to be handed a shovel and he'll take me on personally in the contest, but that's out. I'm going to be the Referee and Time-Keeper, that doesn't take much muscle or w.'.nd and of which I ain't got too much, except for bowling. Charlie Murtagh says he ain't much for betting but he's willln to cover my one nickel anytime that the Kiwanis carry off the honors. Mrs. Paul Zerfass, county chairman-elect of the Red Cross, favors the contest be held on an admission basis and that the proceeds be turned over to the local chapter. And she offers a suggestion that the winners of bets or wagers on the contest also donate their winnings to the chapter.

IMJCY*9 Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING In winter time it is doubly important to include adequate amounts of vegetables in the daily diet. While fresh vegetables are rather scarce and expensive in December, there are always a few stand-bys we can rely upon, and then too, !f we have heeded the government's advice, we have a goodly supply of "victory garden vegetables" canned or stored ready for winter use. Cooking vegetables with meat is an excellent way to enhance their tastiness, and it also provides an opportunity to buy cheaper cuts of meat such as stews, pot-roasts, and soup bones. Winter salads will take on a garden fresh flavor if we take advantage of food combinatfona designed to bring out otherwise hidden flavors; for instance, pineappe added to cabbage salad, or lemon juice to give a sprinkle of zest to band vegetables, like carrots or spinach. Here are a few recipes which may help to bring summer-time back to your December meals: Amber Onions 6 Bermuda onions 4 tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon paprika 1 cup tomato soup 1 cup honey Salt to taste Peel onions, cut in halves crosswise and place in casserole. Blend together the salt, butter, paprika, soup and honey. Pour over onions. Cover and bake for one hour in a moderate oven. Cauliflower with Brazil Nut Sauce 1 head cauliflower 1 tablespoon butter Vi cup chopped Brazil nuts 3 additional tablespoons butter Sugar Salt Cook cauliflowe'r until tender in boiling water salted water, to which a little sugar has been added. Drain. Melt 1 tablespoon -butter, add chopped nuts, and when brown, add additional butter. Pour sauce over cauliflower and serve. Brussels Sprout Surprise 1 quart Brussels sprouts 1 cup green grapes, canned may be used Cook sprouts in 1 cup hot water for 15 minutes. Add grapes, cut in halves. Cook untM sprouts are tender. Season to taste, after draining, with salt, a dash of sugar, butter and a few drop of lemon juice. Spicy Spinach Loaf 2 cups cooked spinach 1 can tomatoes Vi cup chili-sauce % pound cheese 1 cup shredded wheat crumbs 1 onion, chopped 6 slices bacon Mix ingredients in order given, reserving the bacon. Arrange bacon slices on top of mixture which has been placed ta a greased loaf pan. Bake 1 hour in a moderate oven, or until bacon is well done and loaf Is firm. Turnip Puff 2 cups mashed, yellow turnips 1 cup mashed potato 2 eggs yolks, beaten 2 egg whites, beaten stiff Salt, sugar, butter and pepper to taste Mix turnip and potato which have been cooked, drained and mashed.
