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 York, 1918 county sheriff for four years, from iftJti to Ift28> In a ' very acceptable manner, making perhaps one of the most popular and genial officials that the county has had. He had many friends in all parti of the county. Previous to his terms as sheriff he had been city marshal of Algon-a for IS years from 1008 to 1920. After his term of sheriff was ended he and his family returned to the old home on the farm. It has been remarked that George was the only son of pioneers In this vicinity still living on the same farm homesteaded by their parents. Jn his younger days, George was a baseball enthusiast and belonged to the Algona club which was famed for years in this section of Iowa. One of his hobbies was woodworking. His father was by trade a cabinet maker and George developed considerable talent in that line and made many fine pieces of furniture, including two black walnut tables with small inlaid pieces of wood, all of which was native In Kossuth county. One of these tables containing 83 pieces of small blocks of native • woods, is now to be seen In the K. C. hall in Algonn. The late Archie Hutchison once said that George knew Kossuth county trees and geography better than any other man. Mrs. Hackman died In 1940, and four brothers have preceded him in death. They were Edward, Albert, Lewis and Miles. The sole survivor of the Christian Hackman pioneer family is Mrs. W. F. •Mullica, who for the past six months has been caring for her brother on the old homestead. George Is survived by two children, George M. Hackmair, Jr., an instructor in the schools at Knoxvllle, Tennessee, and Mrs. Fred S. Gelgel of Algona. The grandchildren are Joanna, daughter of George, Jr., nnd Mrs. Gerald Voigt of 'Fenton, daughter of the Geigels, and Bob Geigel now serving In the U. S. Navy. George was a devout member of the Presbyterian church, and belonged to the Woodman lodge. Another native son of Kossuth has joined the great majority, leaving a clean record that may be cherished by his dccendants and friends for many years to come.

Haggard George Frederick Hackman The death of George Hackman last Wednesday morning, February 10, marked the passing of perhaps the oldest native born son of those who came here only a few months after the arrival of the Call brothers in 1854. George's mother, with her parents, the Malachi Clarkes, arrived and settled in vicinity of the Call cabin, in August, 1854, only a month after the arrival of the Calls. Christian Hackmanr, George's father, came the next year. George was born in a log cabin April 6,-1863, on the same farm and practically on the same spot where he died. The log cabin was later used as a school house, wheue George attended his first school. When nine years old he herded cattle for the Chubb brothers in the northern part'of the county, and also for the Carl Eberts at Whittemore before there was a town of Whittemore. He attended the rural school and passed through the grades. , iGeorge married Miss Sadie Mullica in 1893 and they moved to Algona, where George served as Silly Work of Reformers Down at Des Molnes the other day they arrested and fined a bowling alley proprietor because he hired a fifteen-year old boy to set up pins for a few hours after school. The boy's father was ill with pneumonia and the boy was in- need of clothes and had to have a pair of glasses if he was to continue in school, so he manfully took the after- school job to help the family which needed every cent they could get in order to live. It seems that it" is against the law to employ a boy under 10 years of age. We know of boys in Algoira under sixteen, we should judge, who earn quite a little money shoveling snow and like jobs while the men of the house are in the service or engaged in government war plants. For heaven's sake has it got to the point that a boy who is ambitious enough to endeavor to do what he can, is forbidden by law to work for pay. It is getting so that a person must keep a lawyer at his elbow at all times to avoid breaking some of the thousands of fool laws and restrictions imposed on- the country, particularly during the reigh of the Nudeal. Even the judge who imposed the fine objected to being compelled to do so, but according to the law he could do nothing else. The fact that there is a shortage of help and girls and women are urged to do men's work while a young able-bodied boy is told to do nothing until he is 16 years old is certainly silly. Tills paper would be forbidden he mails if we were to express ou r feelings in the matter.

LEDYARD NEWS doesn't need gas coupons to Phill-up with Phillips O VER .,. AROUND ... and IN Go different countries or islands, American soldiers, sailors, and marines are in training or already risking their lives to win the war. At how many of these places, their tanks and jeeps, their planes and PT-boats, are fueled with Phillips gasolines, we do not know. And even, if we did, the exact information would be a military secret. This much can be told: On the battlefronts of the world, the products of the American Petroleum In- dustry are playing an ever-increasing, swiftly growing part. So as you tear the little coupon from your gasoline ration book, remember that your tire and fuel savings are your minor contribution to victory; and be grateful that your boy and your neighbor's boy need no coupons to fill the tanks of their war vehicles, need no ration certificates for tires. To help make your car and your tires go farther and last longer, your Phillips 66 Service Man has many services. Ask about them when you stop at any Orange and Black 66 Shield for Phillips 66 Poly Gas, famous for fast starling yep and extra mileage , . . and Phillips 66 Motor Oil, 100% paraffin base.
