We know that a country cannot flight 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 "Sork, 1918 ** The upper Des Moines newspaper office last week received some of the 'best news It has had •since the beginning of the war. At last after protests from all sections of the United States by the newspapers, the powers that be down at Washington have ordered all government departments and agencies to discontinue the mailing of press material to weekly newspapers. This apparently does not mean that the service will be discontinued to the dailies. The Office of War Information at Washington who sent out the information to the papers, evidently thought that the weekly papers would fel .badly about the discontinuance of the "service" and hastened to add to make the blow fall less heavily: "After the war, perhaps we will be- able to resume sending you this service, if you desire it." We have worn out two large wastebaskets "handling" this "service" in the past year and' were going down for the last time when wo received the welcome respite. Now if they would only stop the mailing of so many fool questlonalres which, in our judgment, does no one any good except tho army of clerks engaged In the pastime nt large salaries in the national capital. RAVIHGS by R££SE A LHtli *f flilM- A Ll«l» of Thit Not Mwh of Anythln§ Opinions of Other Editors EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Ten Billion for Boondoggling Well, well, at last the Works Project Administration :'« to be discontinued and the historic boondoggling game inaugurated by President Roosevelt in 1935 is now on the way out. The iVPA was supposed to give some kind of employment to t.he many who were jobless at that time, and save them from the disgrace of accepting charity. At the peak of non-employment there were over three .nnd a half million men on the rolls. Many people sneered at the whole project. We noted at one time while sightseeing in Kansas City, hundreds of men listlessly raking leaves in the city parks at a time of year when there were few if any leaves on the ground. Upon inquiry we were told that they were "boondoggles" and were peta of President Roosevelt. However, it is said that the boon- dogglers really did something worthwhile in building airports, working OH highways, public buildings, sewage systems, etc. Of course now for sev- *ra'l years everybody but the administration realized that the WRA should 'be discontinued, as there was a great demand for men for useful work on farms and in factories, and the millions of dollars being foolishly spent would better be spent for war^needs. There are still 350,000 boondoggles receiving checks from the government. The whole ; 'project is expected to be closed up toy February 'first, 1943. It is officially stated that the boondog-- gfers were paid over ten billion dollars during the seven years of their existence. . Are We Men or Mice? A public survey by the Gallup Poll people la't week clearly showed how the people regard the labor union's forty-hour week. There is said to be a shortage of man power in thf-s country which ,is rapidly approaching the acute stage. Of course j it is plain to everyone that a lengthening of the / forty-hour week to forty-eight would at once solve • the problem. Any able-bodied man should not work less than forty-eght hours per week or eight hours a day. Twenty-five years ago we, or at least most of us, worked at least ten hours a day and no one thought of getting paid for overtime when it became rrecessary to get the tasks done. The forty hour week was one of the pets of the NudP'il and was designed to give many idle men at that Time, jobs. Today there are no live men in tho country who are idle and the workers in the war industries as well as most other Midustries should show a little patriotism. In England the work week is 56 hours and in Russia 66. To the question, "Would you favor or oppose a law requiring workers connected with war industries to work at least 48 hours a week?" 78 per cent answered "Yed" and only 12 per cent "No." Ten per cent had no opinion. It is quite likely Unit the new congress will take the mater of a longer work week up Immediately after the opening of the new congress in January, and it is likely that a forty-eight hour week, with time and u half beginning at tho end of that period will bo established. Fighting for Christ And now comes Christmas. In a bloody, war- lorn world, where the powers of darkness headed •by a bloody handed .brutal murderer of thousands •of innoncent men, women and children has been having his way until recently, the word "Christmas" indeed sounds refreshing. The real meaning of this world war is that the forces of evil are endeavoring to destroy all Christianity and decency in the world, and it is a time for all of the people who believe in the beautiful story of Christ to join together to destroy the inhuman forces of the devil. Many of our 'boys fighting on the far flung battlefields of the world will not have a very pleasant Christmas, 'but they should bear in mind that they are enduring hardships and risking their lives in the greatest cause in the world. If the world Is to go on as a decent world, the spirit of Christ must prevail. This is the most critical time in the history of the world, and the issue is sharply drawn between Christ and the devil. The crusaders of old had no such vital issue to fight for. We must win. Wise Words from Ray Swea City Herald: Wish the government brass hats would given even one compelling reason why the country should stay on war time. After trying it for a year, .there can be only one conclusion, and that It's a lot of baloney. Believing both a trusting soul and believing in the weight of events, we sure sure the flood of government questionnaires now engulfing the average business men will come to a sudden stop, and not 4.00 far distant at that. Our reason: Nobody on God's green earth can take such a dose and survive. Remember, -your Uncle Sam needs the business man to buy his -bonds. Some Are Still Speeding 'Webster City Freeman: It appears that truck drivers are the most persistent violators of speed limits on a comparative basis. According to a news itnm from Des Moines, 21 Iowa motorists face suspension of their gasoline ration coupons because they drove faster than 35 miles an hour. The violations were reported by the state highway patrol to the stale OPA headquarters.. Only eight of the 21 cases were published and of the eight half were truck drivers, their speed ranging from 45 to 65 miles an hour. Other offenders were a motorist driving ing 55 miles an hour a motorist going 65 miles an hour who had been drinking, another one with u speed of 50 miles and still another convicted of driv- •'•ng while intoxicated, and who was fined $300. It will be up to the local rationing boards to say whether not their rationing coupons shall be suspended. Floods of Silly Questlonalres Webster City Freeman: Merchants, bankers, publishers, manufacturers, in fact all businesses, arc being harassed and tormented by questionnaires and demands for innumerable reports of various kinds, some of which are so complicated that entwined in so much red-tape that It requires the services of experts to figure them out. If nil of these quest.'onnalres and reports are necessary to help in winning the war those required to answer them and to fill out the reports will do the best they can, without complaining, but it does appear to many that they could 'be very much simplified by cutting out the redtape, reducing them in volume and numbers and making the forms less complicated and more easily understood. A Washington Associated Press dispatch said the other day: overnment form No. 1-1071-PLOF- 5-NOBU-COS-WP reeled Tuesday from a punishing blow squarely on its fifth hyphen as the joint committee on reduction of non-essential federal expo nditures declared war on useless questionnaires. "It would take a combined Philadelphia lawyer and Indian crystal-gazer to answer some of these forms", declared Senator Arthur Vandenberg (Rep. Mich ) co-author of a resolution, approved by tho committee calling for an investigation of the necessity for the multidinous reports which 'business and other citizens are required to answer. 'People who are being harassed and annoyed by the various voluminous questionnaires and demands for reports on this and that activity wMl applaud the words of Senator Vandenberg, who hit the hull's eye a center shot, and will hope that congressional investigations will result in giving .them some rel'^ef. The head of a big concern remarked some time ago that "we have to spend more time consulting our lawyer than in managing our business." And that applies to the little business men as well as 1.0 the big fellows. My, My, Ain't It Awful Humboldt Republican: One Richard Wilson, writing from Washington, D. C., warns the people in flamboyant type in the columns of last Tuesday's Des Mo'.nes Register that "You Ain't Seen Nobhin Yet" in the real pinch of war. Why blat that stuff out?' There seems to 'be a set of half-wits in Washington and a few in Iowa, that believe it is necessary to abuse and threaten the people to make them •Hvar conscious." If the .people down Washington way would do more war work and talk less they would accomplish more. The people of the m.ddle west are willing to undergo any privation, sacrifice or bear any burden that is necessary to win the war But they are tired of being threatened, abused misrepresented asd kept in the dark about national affairs. How about our telling the people down Washington way a few things of our own Our representatives will find that they ' haven t seen nothin' and ain't 'been nowhere" if they don t r'et a move on. If they don't quit dodg:«g vital issues stop the practice of taking standing votes on vital legislation, quit placating lafcor and the farm Woe hobnobbing with Standard Oil of New Jersey and the German interests, get a move on in synthetic rubber production, and a thousand other things they will never see Washington, D. C., again (unless in the capacity of lame ducks) after their terms of office expire. Instead of them telling us '.t is up to us to tell them. Get a move on, boys of Washington, if you value your jobs. Humboldt Republican: Also Jim Farley has been an unheralded guest of the north, west, soutn and middlewest of the country. Very evidently Big Jim is scouting ahad for the 1944 presidential nom..ration. It is not that he wants 'it for himself. But he is evidently "lining up" opposition to Franklin D Roosevelt's very evident intent to run for a fourth term. There is a heavy element in the Demo- raotic party that is definitely opposed to a dictatorship which is admitedly the aim of the New Deal, or a perpetual president which is undoubtedly the aim of the present incumbent "Big Jim" is head of the move. Also it is safe to say that he has behind him enough support to control the Democratic party; or in event of failure, enough strength to swing behind an independent movement that would kill Roosevelt for a fourth term.

Coughlin of the Waseca Herald, has the termerity to express the opinion that Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt realty has no business in Europe, and that her trip there served no good purpose. He thinks that, as a matter of fact, if she were a good wife, she would remain at home and minister to the health and well-being of her husband in this period of heavy duty and responsibility for him. Expression of such ideas dates the Elder Coughlin l''ke a Chippendale sideboard or a front porch with a comfortable rocking chair on it. Doesn't he knows that no woman worthy of her sex looks after he busband'a Httle comforts any more? To do ii, passe, if not obscene. The woman of today is a worker, a manager, a and bow.

That the first lady of the land, no matter how much us girls hate her and no matter how common she really Is, U going to be a back number? Stay home and take care of a husband, indeed! Let the poor saps take care of themselves. "The girls" have places to go and things Editor Ooughlin doesn't know today's women- Mrs. Roosevelt or any other. He'si thinking about a race that existed In the past-^wishfulJy thinking, PCr And that the women of the day about which he is thinking were better than those who fly to Europe or hold down a riveting job on a Kaiaer shJ^buW- ing project, none tout a very brave mat», like Oough- lin would dare to say- I was in plenty good company one Saturday night when I was a guest of a -bunch of farmers at n swell feed and of course I ate free for nothing and then afterwards 1 tortured the whey out of 'em with the old fiddle and Frank Capesius sat right across the table from me and he was all dolled up with a white shirt and there was George Jutting of Buffalo Center and he watched me like a hawk to see if I used my eating tools right and then he told me he read the Rav- .'•ngs and now he knew what was the matter with me and when the boys lit up their smokes here were Ralph Yanser and George Yanser of the Sexton neighborhood and they pulled out pipes and they were respectable pipes and not the wrestling kind and Hugh Raney he was waiting table and when I told him he made a good looking waiter he gave me a ni'Ckle and I'm going to keep it and Claude Seeley looked at me M funny when he found out who I waa and Walter Vaudt of Whittemore was all dolled up too and he said he had two shirts, one for Sunday and one for banquets, and there was J. C. Skow from Wesley and he's a Dane and he made a swell talk and if he can sing forgangen nat as good as he can talk then I'm going to get that guy into my Dane quartet and with my fiddle I almost drew tears from that bunch, not 'because I touched their heart strings, but because they wanted me to quit, —o— Ralph Lindhorst, he's a soldier now, was home the other day and he came In and gave me the dickens because on account of I let ths state go so republican last November and he said he thought he'd left things in good hands when he went away and my face was so red and told" him JM do better two years from now and even though I may be the only democrat in Kos- .suth county until he comes back Fm still going to stay a democrat, and that's that. Bud Zender and Dr. McCorldo went out last Sunday and dug some carrots in Bud's garden and Bud sa!d there was no frost in his garden but Doc said the 'biggest job was digging the snow till you got to the carrots and next year Bud is going to put in his garden in August and harvest it in December and that's an idea. —o— And one of the nicest Christina* presents I got was from Clarence Pollard, superintendent of the power plant, when he cut the wheeze and whamming of the siren down to 15 seconds at 7 and 12 and 6 Boy, .'a that ever welcome to my esthetic year? Thanks, Clarence SIHt Norton, Dutch Lorenz, Fred Shilts, Jack Kerper, "Bo" Bohannon and Les Kenyon were gulping their coffee all at the same time and Milt asked me to sit in and he paid for my gulping and why is it that others can't do that once !-n a while? Just for thai Milt won't have to pay any dues to the Guto- ers next year and I sure will go the limit for that guy because on account of he was good to me. A. W, Rhode and W. U. Patter r son and Hugh Black get their mail at Buffalo Center, and Don Weaver and E. C. Weisbrod of Fenton wero at the Saturday night feed where I made 'em suffer with my fiddle and the only one of 'em I knew was E. C. and the last time I'd seen him he was holding up the front of a restaurant and Don said he leaned against a bank once but he never did try to hold it up and neither did the Buffalo Center boys and they admitted they liked to lean against a building once in a while but they steered shy of banks and liquor stores and did their leaning agatast eating houses because on account of they liked the smell of hamburger, and onions. —o— Dick Sorensen suggests (hat maybe the Gulpers could start a sort of factory here where all of the coffee grounds wrom all of the coffee pots in town coi Id be gathered and then used the grounds over again for gulping like President Roosevelt has -suggested -but I'm "agin" that because on account of I tried that the other day and coffee grounds which already has 'been coffee a?.n't no good for gulping coffee.
