We know that a country cannot fight to win them once and stop. We learned the fcard 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 York, 1918 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. VV. Haggard Harry Hopkins on the Spot At last it seems that our one-time Iowa boy, Harry Hopkins, for a number of years Pr<;s ! dent Roosevelt's closest friend and advisor, is going to be brought before a committee of congress and his actions investigated in handling the many billion dollar lend-lease program. We avu laterally handing out billions of dollars and guns, ammunition, and food to England, Russia and China to be used in the united war effort, and Harry Hopkins has this enormous distribution of the country's resources in his charge. At the time when the entire country is trying to conserve every penny and enduring rationing of fuel, gas and food to assist in the effort, our former Iowa .boy who has been advising us to pull in our belts a notch or two more and forget we are hun- ;gry, has not been going hungry by a long shot, aiarry, who was recently married the second time, -was with his wi.fe the guests of honor at a ban- .-jjuet given in Washington by Bernard Baruch that made the fabled old Roman banquets pale into insignificance. There were sixty guests and it is said that the hotel where the banquet was ..served was paid $60 per plate. It is safe to say that those attending were required to loosen their "*elts instead of tightening them. Most of the pro- .minent Nudeal officials were present with their \wives to feast on the rich foods and wmes. .On the heels of the banquet the story was given out "by the newspapers that Mrs. Hopkins harl keen made a present of emeralds costing :-n the neighborhood of half a million dollars by Lord Beaverbrook, who is on the receiving end in England for the United States lend-lease aid. The great English lord perhaps feeling grateful for the lavish generosity of the HopkMis regime apparently was intent on showing his appreciation. Late* Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins, who make their home in the White House, vehemently denied the emerai'J story. But the story made some of the old-timers recall the Teapot Dome scandal during the republican administration of the late President Harding. They cannot help but remember that Hop- tins was the man who a few years ago made tlio public statement that the Nudeal was going 10 •"spend and lend and tax and tax" at a time when the taxpayers were goaded to desperation by the rising flood of taxes being spent foolishly on "har- jiessins the tides" and other fool theories of a group of untried boys just out of school, who had 9>een given a free hand by the administration an 1 were playing with the hard-earned money of the taxpayers as though it was merely worthless matches in a penny ante game. Hopkins is per- Biaps the weakest man surrounding President Roosevelt, and a thorough probe of his lend-lease official actions by congress should be welcomed by the public. MacNider for President And now we have a real hero of two wars •Who is receiving mention from the Washington columnists ns a fitting candidate for president on the republican ticket i.n 1914. The hero is General Hanford MacNider of Mason City. Mac- Wider was wounded in the first World war and wa-i •decorated for bravery. MacNider, who had been one of few Legion men who was against this country entering the preseirt war, immediately after Pearl Harbor volunteered for active service and was sent to Australia as a brigadier general. The next we heard from him he was in the front line or. New Guinea, flght'.ng the Japs. He was seriously wounded a month or .so ago and has been recup- erating In the hospital fifhc*. MacNidet is not only a' fighter but proved himself a statesman while servMig as minister to Canada. He is also a flno business man having been the head of the Portland Cement Company at Mason City since tho death of his father some years ago. A real business man at the head of the nation would be refreshing after the years of - profligate spending we have been sustaining as best we can the present administration. (MacNider would be head and shoulders above Dewey and would certainly be on a par with Wendell Willkie. Let us have MacNider if possible. Farmers and Union Labor A Mr. T. D. Smith, apparently at one time a Kossuth county man, writing from Los Angeles, Calif., make a moving plea for the farmers of the country. Mr. Smith suggested that he would rather his name would not be published in connection with the article, but •we are not in the habit of publishing anonymous letters and Mr. Smith says nothing in his letter that he need b_e ashamed of, so we take the liberty of giving him full credit for the letter which we print i.n part below. The letter is addressed to the "Algona Republican, attention Mr. Haggard." • • • Anent all the hub-bub In Washington re: The "Farm Bloc", and the heated criticisms released to the press in defense of Leon Henderson, el al. Like any city farm-products consumer, or war-worker in defense factories receiving high wages, I'd like to buy my pork chops at five cents a pound. It is rather nice to make $1.75 an hour, forty hours a week, with time-and-a-half for over-time. In fact, prompted by my own selfish interests, I'd like a low "ceiling" on everything I buy . . . especially, food . . . but, I know such a program just won't work. I can't work, if I don't eaU There is no problem to that . . . outside of Washington. In other words, the farmer must be given a break . . . Or, ELSE! Yes, I know the "late" Mr. Henderson's draft- evaders fresh out of the country's leading universities prove all their progressive economic theories by intricate charts with the food producer given a low rating, but as any farmer knows, this is not a blue-print war, nor can it be won with high wages in war factories and low farm income. Of late, we city folks hear much of farmer greed which might promote Inflation, implying an unwllingntss to co-operate in the war effort. Maybe I am wrong, but I never met with that attitude on farms. As a youth In Kossuth county, working on farms 90 to 96 hours a week, there was an outstanding spirit of cooperation. One of my farm bosses paid me and other farm hands full wages to put in the crops of a farmer who was ill. Later, when the farmer recovered, he wanted to repay my boss, who said: "Jim, you would have done ns much for me, and, if you leave cash for the hands, I'll throw it in your face." To me, this spirit permeates the entire farm industry. The only difference I have noted over the years is: Tractors can be worked longer than horses, which seems, using men to beat horses out of a job. Thus, despite improved farm machinery, the hours are just as long and the chores just as irksome. May be I am wrong. May be I am wrong, but when the farmer asks the government for any consideration, the answer is: No. But, when the CIO or AFL intimate "the boys" would like a raise, the answer is: Yes. Yet, the farmer is criticised fbr making a fight in behalf of his economic rights with the cry: "Inflationary!" May be I am wrong, but it seems to me that farming is THE prime defense industry, and, farm prices and wages must go higher to stimulate greater food production. It seems one of two things: Increased farm prices, or reduced industrial wages. Increased farm prices means: Inflation. Reduced factory wages means: "Parity." We are told that a work week longer than forty hours, takes too much out of workmen. May be I am wrong, but should farmers go on a forty hour week, it would prove a far larger goldbrick than we were sold in the diplomacy before Pearl Harbor. Oh, yes. There is the latter matter of patriotism as well as inflation. Well, 1 don't se.j any forty-hour-week workmen leaving war factories to go on farms at half the wages and twice the hours prompted by patriotism. Of course, an 1-A draft rating might be a cosideration, but may be, I am wrong. Opinions of Other Editors Pot Nuts of the Hopkins Stripe Ackley World-Journal: "Don't do as I do, but do as I say." In Washington city within the past week, a group of the self-anointed and self-appointed held forth at a table loaded w'.th imported wines and fancy plates, totaling $3,000—these .same "birds" of the Hopkins stripe tell their fellow-Americans to "economize" and maintain the war-spirit, but for extravagance and waste, they're a power unto themselves. They set a poor example. » * » Victory Tax Hits the Pay Checks Eagle Grove Eagle: Every employe in the country who earns $12 per week will have 5 per cent taken from his pay check starting January 1 of this year. The government may return a portion of it at the end of the year, 25 per cent to single persons and 40 per cent to married people plus 2 per cent for each dependent. The purpose of the tax ifi to help finance the war and cut donw spending. It will be interesting to se'.> linw it works out. You cut down spending and you cut down government tax collections. Where an employe has already pledged 10 per cent or more of his earnings for defense bonds, he may not be able to continue like purchaser in 1943. But the with-holding tax must be collected by each employer on all wages paid in 1943 in excess of $12 per week. Top Heavy With Red Tape Dec.orah Journal We 'believe the greatest saving of manpower for war purposes could be brought about by eliminating 75 per cent of the governmental red tape BOW being forced on the people. With the coming of the new year there will be a five per cent payroll deduction forced oit employers. In many big businesses this will requrre the services of onu or more workers to merely care for this work. The Bocial Secruity bookkeeping probably takes much of the time of hundreds of thousands of workers today. As we recall, it was President Grover Cleveland of the old-time Democratic party who in effect saM: "the nation that governs best governs least." This is in line with the advice of a recent New Yorker editorial declaring that "make rationing strict, but make it simple." Th:s would be the wisest policy as it is difficult for the public to make out statistical reports that take needed t:*ne and work. Recbntly when you »-eg«stered for gasoline rationing, you had to get the serial numbers of your tires. Who is going to check these— and for what? If tfaey are checked, think of the millions of man- work hours th:a would require. Congress in recent years has g'ven m to organized minorities— the American Federation of lAbor, the O. I. O., the Farm Bloc, the Silver State Senators, the Veterans' organization. By trad- tog votes the Silver States get high silver prices, the farmers high cotton prices, and labor high , to IB per cent more food products than for the all-time record year of 1942, they are being cut 80 per cent in machinery, curtailed in farm machinery repairs, stripped of man-power, rationed with gasoline and those who have oM stoves or oil burners are told to keep their homes at the uncomfortable and in many cases unhealthful temperature of not over 65 degrees—due to a fuel shortage and yet men in oil-producing areas report no shortage of fuel oil and it is moved principally by pipeline. Maybe there :a some reason for gasoline rationing to save tires, but we can see no necessity for "fuel oil" rationing unless our losses of oil and gasoline in tankers 'n the Carribean and Atlantic are much higher than has been reported. These farmers worked 70 or more hours a week to produce the 1942 crops and are asked to produce more in 1943, meaning to work longer, and yet to live in uncomfortable temperatures in their homes while union coal miners under John L. Lewis work 35 hours a week for only part of the year. No wonder the Iowa Farm Bureau in resolutions at the recently state convention told union labor to keep "hands off" from organizing farmers, though not opposing having labor organ ! <ze for itself. We sincerely hope that the next congress will have enough spunk and ability lo again make Congress work in the inetrest of .the American people and not be subject to the control of pressure groups of so-called organized minorities, which should be dubbed "lobbyists" and which have no more place in a really J^emocratlc America than do the political machines of "Boss" Hague In New Jersey, or the late Boise Penrose in Pennsylvania or Pendergast in Missouri. RAVIHGSbymSl A Unit of Tl»l* - A Unit of Thai» Not Much of Anything Fin not fw hot for thlii' tlinef»av- ing business especially Itt the morning when I have to go trf work at 8 bells with a lantern in one flat and a flash light Sn the other to flnd the office. Dark as pitch at 8 o'clock and the street lights going and a guy feels as though he hadn't had a full night's sleep. However, every day now the sun rises a minute earlier and In a month it'll almost be daylght at 8, when I go to the post office for the mail and there I'll find Raymond Irons, Dana Paxson, Raymond Re!d, W. C. Dewel, Mayor Kohlhaas and Lloyd Bohannort, and they are always early birds at the P. O. and have gotten used ,to the dark mornings, I guess. I repeat, I'm not so hot for this time-saving in the morning. About the only two guys in this town who don't mind It are Tim O'Brien and Cecil McG!.nnls, and they are night police and kinder get used to the dark come 8 o'clock In the morning.* And Ed Capeslus is "agin" the dark hour because on account of he says their cows atr hour earlier and by noon maybe the milk is that mu'oh closer to souring. Guess I'll write my congressman and see if we can't have the regular sunrise agata. Chas. Bormann at Whlttemore, the only Bormann in Whittemore township, was in Algona one day last week and he came in this office and he's going to read this column another year and he says sometimes he reads it without getting too disgusted but sometimes he clips it out and pastes it up on the wall back of the kitchen range and whenever he feels too lonesome he reads a couple of lines and admits that sometimes I'm O. K. even though I am homon- culus. But Chas. says he's getting the east ,by southeast wall of his kitchen papered and cluttered up with a lot of bunk. —o— One clay last week after I drove my old crate out of the garage an.t after I'd driven a block the innards something went haywire and Lhere I was— stalled and just then Rev. C. C. Richardson came by and Ills car was purring along so nice and so I asked him would he give my old bus a shove and he said he would and then he suggesed I 'buy a horse, and which maybe I should, but I ain't got no place to keep a lorse, the car ain't big enough to riold one and the Mrs. says I can't keep a horse in the aparr- ment, so that's out. But just the same the minister pushed my bus and got me out of the traffx: -and it was nice of him. But I ain't oing to buy a horse, even if I lad the money, because on account of I ain't got no place to keep a lorse and they don't have garages for horses any more. Lawrence Geitzenauer was down from Lone Rock the other day and he's the manager in the elevator there and he said I could come up any time now and he'd let me climb way up into the.cupalo an:l which I have always wanted to do and Lawrence wore n:s new hat and was dressed up like he was going to a wedding and he said that 10 gave his old hat to Alex Radig to burn in his stove Christmas day. And over in the bank Ernest Jensen has decided to organize a Dane quartet but he don't seem to get far with Norman Cotton learning :he Dane songs, 'but Wm. Chr!aten- sen says he's getting in touch with some other Danes north of town and Lone Rock will have its Dane singing but Lawrence ain't so hot From the Files TEN YEARS AGO Melzar Falkenhainer was elected ecretary-treasurer of the Druggist Mutual nsurance Co. to succeed his father, the late Al Falkenhainer. * * * J. O. Paxson, prominent Algonan, died only two days after resigu- ng from the Kossuth County Mutual Insurance Company with which, he had been connected since 190(1. * * * Harold Quarton, Algona man, had just been promoted from Am- encan consul at Havana, Cuba, to Consular General at Havana. The announcement was followed by a report from GuyaquM, Ecuador, snying that he was to be consular Sen eral there. His wife, a former Coblenz, Germany, girl, planned to come to America for six months to obtain citizenship papers. Mr. Quarton was then in his twenty- first year of consular service. * * * Betty Merrltt and Mary Elizabeth Foster pleased Ithe Rotary club with their music. Betty played saxophone solos accompanied by Mary. TWENTY YEARS AGO Algona. was proud of its many young people attending colleges.

He was measured for a green costume resembling a snake in which he was to do his contortion act. * * * Mr. and Mrs. J. l k Bonar were being congratulated on the arrival of a fine baby daughter. * * * Air. and Mrs. George Duryea were entertaining their children, Nina Duryea, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Africa and sons, (Henry, Jr., and James. They had celebrated their 04th wedding anniversary in June. * * * 'Miss June Corey entertained 9 group of young girls at a six o'clock dinner at the Fred Corey home honoring Ruth Dickinson. about singing and he ain't Ih the quartet. I met A. C. Bernau of Went Bend the other day and he drove clear over here to Algona because on account of he wanted to get a glimpse of the super-brains .whteh worked on .this paper and now he's happy and satisfied and he's a big guy and Fm a little squirt alongside of him .but he told me sometimes 1 was a mental giant because on account of I wrote things which I didn't know what It was all about. If ever I get enough gas to dr'.ve clear over to (West Blend some time I'm going to'have a feed on A. C. Bernau and I hope It's chicken. ^-o— I see where the Lotts Creek band Is giving up practicing for the winter, or was it the duration? Any how Nick Gengler, and He's one of the big shots '•» the band, sold I could play In the Lotts Creek band this winter and here I been practicing long and short breaths and developing my diaphragm so I could do some tooting with the boys. Nick says I've got a lot of wind, but don't always know how to use It, but I could play bass drum and that don't take any wind, —o— Lawrence Gfflesple says I'm a ftlfp! fit, I was looking up at it and __.. rehtfe ctfJheS al*tt| and say "He> Rube' wHftt ye looking at?" ahc he said t was the first rube he'd seen in years' arid Wanted to knbW did 1 live here and which t do. But I'll get even with that guy for calling me names, just watt until some time when'* he's b'eatlrtg the bass drum in the band —J?ll tell him I ain't no hayseed and with embellishments. _^o_ Had an argument with Sim Leigh of Irvington the other day about how old I was and come to find out he ain't as old as t am because on account of I've go thlm beat a couple of years and S'.m halt read this weekly effort for over fbrty years and he said sometimes It was really an effort to read it and Bill Haggard .backed him upon that and after Sim left in comes Nick Maharas and again we got into an argument about our ages And he's younger'n I am and It just looks to me like Nick and S'.m Were just a couple of young fellows and I'm the old guy, I met Garl Swannon, living northwest of LuVerne, on the street the other day and he said he almost knew me by my picture, though my picture must have been taken twenty years ago, and he also ad' mltted he read this .bunk but his hide was thick an dhe could read '.t -without it burning his stomach although, he said, sometimes the bunk was terrible and which I also admit. But that's one nice thing about meeting these farmers, Carl also offered a feed If I'd come_put and I hope it's chicken. Helpful Hints MEAL PLJUOnNO - COOKING - SEWINO Nothing helps out a meal—any meal, morning, noon or night, like muffins. Perhaps we talked about muffins last month or the month before. No matter—here we go again. Muffins are so quickly made, re- qu'.ring little mixing and practically no attention, in a just right oven, that they are really "victory specials." Whenever you have them be sure and have an adequate supply—and there is such a variety that you could easily serve a different type for each meal during the week, and not use them all. N Have you tried muffin dougn- nuts. (To make them, roll plpln hot baked muff.'.ns in melted butter, then in sugar and cinnamon mixture). With the food shortage and rationing just dip the split sides in a butter, sugar and cinnamon mixture. Ever wanted something different for a base to serve.^reamed foods? Try muff : .ns, hollowed" out and filled with your prepared food. The following is a standard recipe for muffins with suggestions and variations: Standard Muffin Recipe 2 cups flour 3 teaspoon baking powder % teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar 1 egg 1 cup milk 4 tablespoons melted shortening S'.ft flour, measure and sift again with baking powder, salt and sugar. Beat egg, add milk and shortening. Combine with flour mixture, mixing just enough to moisten flour. Fill well greased muffin pans about 2-3 full. Bake in a moderately hot oven (425 degrees) 20 to 25 minutes or untM nicely browned. This amount makes 12 medium sized muffins. Suggestions for Tender, Crusty muffins Remember to' 1. Add liquid ingredients all at once. 2. Stir only until mixed dry '.n- gredients are dampened. Over mixing causes toughness and tunnels. 3. Bake in a moderately hot oven. Quick baking produces lighter, crustier muffins. Other Batter Combinations Use standard rec'.pe, divide batter in half, all '4 cup sausage,! crisped to one-half batter. Add ',1 cup grated cheese to the other half. Fill greased muffin tins 1-3 full with sausage .batter and top with cheese batter, to make tins 2-3 full. Marmalade or Jam Muffins—Fill tins 2-3 full, top with 1 teaspoon jam or marmalade. Add more batter. Upside-down Muffins — Place coarsely cut nut meats or fru't in bottom of tins, top with the batter. Serve the muffins upside down. Apple Muffins—Fill tins half full of batter. Grate or chop apples fine, add a little sugar and cinnamon and put on top of the batter, Variations Corn meal muffins: Substitute 1 cup corn meal for 1 cup flour. •Whole Wheat Muffins: Substitutes 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup flour. Orange Muffins: Add 1 tablespoon grated orange rind and % cup finely diced orange pulp to flour mixture. Peanut Butter Muffins: Omit sugar and shortening. Combine 6 tablespoons peanut butter with egg; add milk, add to flour. .. Try serving an all together d'>f- ferent muffin with tea when friends drop in. Lemon Tea Muffins 1 cup flour 2% teaspoons baking powder % teaspoon salt % cup shortening % cup sugar 2 eggs 1 tablespoon grated lemond rind % cup lemon juice Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Cream shortening, add sugar gradually, creaming until light. Add egg yolks 1 at a time, beating i well after each addition. Add lemon rind.
