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 "Sork, 1918 And Was Mike's Face Red? They are telling what is considered a great joke on Iowa's native son, "Mike' Cowles, president of the Des Moines Regster and Tribune Co., who accompanied Wendell Willkie and his party on his recent trip around the world as good-will envoys. It seems that Mike and Wendell between limes with their meeting royalty and discussing the great problems of the war, were not averse to n little fun and had their eyes out fon oriental dances and such like. Of course when they arrived in Bagdad, which is famous as the homo of oriental dancing, what more natural than the'r thoughts should roam in that direction. Someone slipped it to Mike that it was the best entertainment hi town. At the solemn state dinner given in honor of Mr. Willkie and his party, after the program, Willkie was asked what kind of enetrtalnment he preferred. Mike piped up and says he, "What about the Dancers of Bagdad?" Wendell seconded the motion. So after a long stately and dull dinner, Mike who sat beside the wife of the British minister, was surprised to hear the announcement: "We now present the 'Dancers of Bagdad' at the request of Mr. Gardner Cowles, jr." The wife of the British Minister immediately turned a disapproving back. During the entire performance she continued a conversation 1 with Mr. Cowles—on archaeology. Mr. Cowles Is not an archaeologist. But he listened politely with little opportunity to watch the "Dancers of Bagdad." RIPPLING I've found a mffdhouse In this town, a place here folks go 'round and 'round, where figures, questions, puzzle men, and where Confusion reigns, no end, Corrie men and women, all alert, and full of silly, pert, with ques and forms galore, for EDITORIAL COMMENT By d. W. Haggard Opinions of Other Editors Dewey or Willkie Now that Tom Dowey is about to become the governor of New York state, he is being freely discussed as the 1944 republican candidate for president. The fact that he carried the state of New York for governor by an enormous majority over a perfectly good and able democrat has, of course, according to custom placed him in line for the presidency. A number of our presidents have gone from the governorship of New York to the presidential chair and it is likely that Tom 'has his eye on that honorable position. Dewey has yet to show that he is anything more than a district attorney who has gained fame solely through prosecution of gangsters and murderers who were running rampant in New York City. It is true that he prosecuted them with vigor and fearlessness. But their crimes were so flagrant that verdicts of guilty were comparatively easy to obtain. But we must admit that Tom did a good job. Of course, this of itself has nothing to do with being a great statesman. After a few years as governor of the great state of New York which has been under democratic rule for the past twenty years, the .country may more clearly take his measure. To many he seems to lack presidential size, and his personality is not very impressive Then again, Wendell Willkie, who comes from New York also, may claim priority rights to the republican nomination in 1944. Willkie has won the admiration of many when after his defeat by President Roosevelt in 1940, he teamed up with his winning opponent for the most vigorous prosecution of the war. Willkie is an able and forceful character, whose followers in 1940 numbe.-nd twenty-two millions and he certainly may easily be a force to be reckoned with in case he again seeks the presidency. It is true the isolationists of the party have no kind feelings for him but Dewey stands in no better light with them. Republicans like ex-president Hoover, Alf Landon, Robt Taft and others would never line up with Willkio whom they call more of a democrat than a repuh- But now that mast intelligent people un- id that the name democrat or republican menirs little or nothing only to those seekin- to profit in the way of fat jobs, little attention "will be paid to this charge made by the politicians The hoys vv-11 have to have something better than that, with which to head Willkie off. Personally we have boon an admirer of Willkie but of late we have had a suspicion that he talks too much It la understood thnt Harrison Spangler of Iowa, who waa last week elected republican nat- ionalcomm'tteeman, and who has always favored the "stand-pflt" fnctiorr in the party, is not inclined to get excited over either Dewey or Willkie but vaguely intimates that they are both fine l:can. derstand Eleanor Should Rest Up Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, the president's w'.fe has come under the eaglo eye of the Gallup Poll people and they have made a survey to ascertain whether she was receiving the pnnrnvnl nr disfin- proval of the country in her wide travels to tell the people what to do and what not to rin arc still a number of people who are old fashioned enough to think that a woman's place is in the homo and not continually gaddtag around letting off steam on every imaginable subject. The poll showed that peopo were either very strong for her or against her. There was no middle ground It How Wages are "Stabilized" Creston News-Advertiser: The president has had a good deal to say about "stablizing" wages, and while he has been talking '.t, the senate civil service committee—urrder thorough new deal control—has approved a bill to increase wages of federal employes. Here's fbe method: The measure provdies a mnimum 44-hour week with pay and one-half for nil overtime above 40 hours. Tills would boost the wages of approximately 1,500000 employes—that is to sav, 1,500,000 little cogs '.n the political machine. The total extra expense to the taxpayers would amount to $379,459,000 per year. Is that what we are to understand the Roosevelt wage stabilization means? Is that the new deal version of the "all-out sacrifice for war?" * Those Fantastic Wages Humboldt Republican: One of the b'g headaches of the times following the war will be the adjustment of wages. The workers in- the war plants who are drawing from $50 to $250 a week will find it hard to get down to the old wage of $25 a week. But that is pll private industry can pay if it meets the taxes pMed on it by the government . . . Still, if the experience of one man is typical it mav not bn so hard. A man in a neighboring town who had been drawing $92 a week in a war plant returned to h's home town and accepted a job at $25 a week. He said he could save more money at home on the small wage. Democratic PresdcnHal Possibilities , Webster City Journal: Just who Is there in the democratic party who would have any show of winning as a prea'dential candidate, aside from Franklin D. Roosevelt? Vice President Wallace would seem to be the best bet Of course thero are Secretary Ickes, Secretary Ma Perkins and Attorney General Biddle. But none of them has 'what it takes" to win a nomination, saying nothing of an elect'on. Secretary Hull would be satisfactory as cand'riate and as president were it not for his age. The Freeman-Journal can't recall the time when the democratic party was so scarce of presidential timber. But there is one democrat who is of presidential size and who would make a great president, but he lives in a strong republican slate and is out of favor with the men in the White House. That democrat is Senator Guy M. Gillette of Iowa. • * * Let's All Get fin Payroll W. F. Rieckhoff in D. M. Forum: Hurrah! Hurrah! A good time coming for all of us very soon. The government is pnving wonderful salaries and wages to everybody they employ; but all the rest of us, who are not in the government employ must dig down in our pockets to do the paying, it seems to me that all the rest of us, who are not yet government pap-suckers, should make application for government jobs and, before long, all of us would be working for the government and then we would have to pay our own salaries, which would make it a lot easier to live. Let us try to get everyboriv w^rkin^ for the government, on government "jobs" so to make it easier for everyone. questions, tionnalrej sundry clerks to puzzle o'er. And it is rationing I find, that taices man's and woman's mind, that drives 'em nuts from morn till night, Intent on filling forms out right. We all agree to ration need, conserving rubber, gas and feed, and gladly we cooperate, as freedom we'd perpetuate. But down In Washington some bird, who never ->t a farm has heard, who knows of life but city way, and gaily lives from day to day, knows aught of Iowa's fertile soil or how our farmers dally toll, to grow our milk and eggs and meat, that all the world .iiay have to eat, who couldn't for me minute see what he has done to you and me, when he would ration gas to us, as did he for met- .-opolis.

And not one cent do members get, for all the dailjr stew and fret, nor for the names applied to them, by irate and impatient men, not one appreciative word, nor is a "thank you" ever heard.

Should Repeal State Income Tax Webster City Freeman Journal As the federal government fa going to exact a very large percentage of the net incomes of tho people, in some instances reaching close to 90 per font the statai. it seeras to the Freeman-Journal, ought to abandon the income tax field and leave it entirely to the cultivation of Uncle Sam. Some who oppose elimination of Iowa's income tux law ask what will take its place aa a revenue measure? That is hardly a reasonble question. An unfair and discriminatory law should be repealed as a matter of principle, and Iowa's income tax law is very unfair and discriminatory, and is not levied at all on the sound theory of taxing according to ability to pay, us the person with a taxable income of $4,001 is taxed on the same basia as the one with ten or fifty times that income. Quite a number of states never enacted : .n- come tax laws and some that did have repealed them. In the course of an editorial discussion the question of repeal of the Iowa law the Sioux City Journal says) More tfian a year ago The Journal suggested, fai view of O»e fact that mush heavier federal levies were imperative that the Iowa general «VT^ainMy provide eom« relief from the state income tax burden. That suggestion lias been reiterated because of the conviction that the people of this btate have the right to expect some bind of relief in the circumstances. Citizens now have a rough, or approximate, idea of what they will be required to pay in federal income taxes in 1943. They know '(bat their taxes paid liW* year will be triuled or quadrupled. They sense, too, since leaders In congress are dhsoussinif from day to day the necessity, as pointed out by Secretary ojf the Treasury ftloivcnthau, of additional levies on top of tfcose In the recently enacted tax law, that the burden wlJJ be still heavier. In 1943, there- fore, taxes on inrpme for 1043 may be five times as great as those paid this year. There are states that do not have income tax laws. Some states that have such, already have reduced the levies or wiped them out altogether. The reason for this was a frank, honest recognitVm by state officials, inclining jnwiv hers of the legislative bodies, of the fact that inasmuch as federal levies were bound to be much greater relief ought to be provided whore possible. It also was recognized that the increase in the cost of living had a bearing on the situation. In the lower brackets of social and economic life there is bound to be a point beyond which taxpayers cannot be pressed with safety. In ttome cases, if tax burdens were increased without regiard for the ability to pay, it would be a financial impossibility for payment to be made. There are certain items of living that must remain flxed, if, indeed families are to conserve their strength and remain healthy. And that is one of the most urgent of all requirements in a time f>t total war, that the people stay as well as possible physically. There is a strong sentiment, in official Quarters in Iowa as well as among the people, for revision or repeal of the state income tax law. Gov.-Elect Hicbenlpoper Is thinking of ways and means to do something about It. So are leaders in the general assembly. Whether they finally will decide to cut the income levy in half or will repeal It altogether, they, themselves do not know W>w. They are studying the problem honestly and urgently, and the hope is that relief may be provided. Needless to say, residents of this state would be delighted and relieved If something were done to lighten the tax burden. They feel that economy M well as charity ought to begin at home.
