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 "Sork, 1918 (Governor Bourke Hickenlooper last week ordered the demobilization of the Iowa state guard battalion at Camp Dodge which, it Is said, will save the state about $360,000 a year. Good for ''Hick." He Is really determined to look out for the interest of the taxpayers of Iowa and it is a safo bet they will not forget it. df course the state guard is more or less of a benefit for the officers and men and comprises at present 206 men and 2.1 officers, Who is costing the state over $300,000, •and is admitted to be of little practical value. Governor Hickenlooper proposes-to keep up a headquarters company of not more than ten men on full time duty at the state house and at Camp Dodge to take care of the guard equipment and attend to administrative duties. The cost of the permanent battalion has 'been running about $360,000 a year. It is now planned to allot $8 per man per year to all 34 companies of the state guard in various Iowa cities and towns. TThe allotment will aggregate $480 annually for companies at full strength of 60 men. Up till now there has been no state aid for these companies. The regular two-week summer camp for all guardsmen wMl bj held as usual this year. The camp last year cost the state $194,000. If 'Hick" should ever get it into his head to be a candidate for the United States Senate he will be remembered as the governor who truly tried to relieve the troubles of the overburdened taxpayers by cutting out unnecessary folderols. If the administration at Washington would do likewise the sale of war bonds and stamps would show a marked increase. EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. VV. Haggard Opinions of Other Editors Herring On Rationing Board It is understood that the appointment of former Senator Clyde Herring of Iowa as deputy administrator of the Office of Price Administration last week is liable to cause a general overhauling of prices and rationing. The former seirator ks a practical business man with a generous supply of cornjnon sense, and it seems that is sorely needed in that department. A private management firm will make a survey of the OPA organization under Herring's direction to see how it can be . improved. OPA employs about 45,000 regular workers. In addition to this the non-paid boards number about 28,000 persons in 5,600 boards. The heads of these local boards are not paid a cent, while the employes and clerks are paid about double what they could earn in civilian employ. Many of the best men in these local communities are devoting their entire time to this patriotic work. A great many of these men are sacrificing their private business. Algona knows that able men like Mr. Phillips, Mr. Hawcott, Mr. Wen French and Albert Granzow have spent their time and their own private funds to make a success of the rationing which, at best, is a thankless job. It is said that there are 5,000 highly paid em- ployes of the rationing effort in Washington. About 20,000 workers are employed as clerks in local 'boards. Mr. Herring intimates that he will look into the contention that the organization- is not representative of the country but is composed of too many "eastern" or New Yark experts and consultants who draft prices and rationing programs as if they were only to apply in the larger Local Option and Snoopers Ray Spurbeck-in Swea City Herald: The nubject of local option is being brought up in the Iowa legislature this winter. Wonder if we are headed for the old roundup;'local option, county option, and state wide stautory prohibition? This corner confesses it is licked on the subject of handling hard liquor. Prohibition is not the answer, nor is local option. Best we can think of is to try to convince the population by persuasion it ought to quit guzzling. . . . Much as we admire the hardworking and harassed triple A authorities at Algona we can't go along with them, when they urge farmers to see that their neighbors join the food program. We have enough busybodies and snoopers as it is without all of us watching one another. We feel certain every farmer is fully conscious of his responsibility in the production of livestock and crops this year. To impugn his patriotism or good faith is not a part of the real American way. • * * (Clarion Monitor: Far be it for the editor of this paper to flout womanhood or belittle the doings of the fair sex, or suggest that mere man is doing anything that the ladies can't do any better; but the fact remains that the special bomber that carried the first lady to Des Moines and that tKe same bomber or similar ones that have carried her elsewhere on her travels in various portions of the world, might have been used in furthering the war effort with much better effect. If the dear lady could just go home and look after her busy, worried husband, and the multiple duties that come to every wife and mother in war times, how much better it would be. Not that there are not women doing necessary war work. Of course there are. But they are not riding around on personal errands in bombers that might be used somewhere else or have remained in the hangars and saved gas and oil at least—in these gasless days. plllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIH | We Have the Materials for | | Brooder Houses, Hog | I Houses and Sheds I It has been suggested by an Algona man who is appendlxless (he wishes his Identity kept secret for the present because on account of he feels that since they cut out his appendix: he's not. all there) that we organize an appendix club here and whenever a guy goes to the hospital to submit to appendectomy that the club provide entertainment for him and Visit him and look after him while the hole, in his turn-jacket Is healing over. A good idea. One time they took out my appendix and after I got through hurting I appreciated the little attentions visitors gave. And also the club would see to It that the brother had a good looking nurse. And also the club would see to It that clgarets, pipe or snus was furnished. By all means let's start ain appendixless club. For some dozen years now I've managed to get along without one of those things and I can eat grape seed and all of the other things which don't fit so well in human gizzards. I was "in North Dakota when they cut out my appendix and I told 'em to bury the darned thing because on account of it was busted and they buried it and right away the ground up there became exceptionally fertHte and they built a n'ew packing plant to accommodate all the increased vegetables which grew in the neighborhood where my appendix was burled and Jamestown, North Dakota plans to build a statue of me like they do of Wm. Penn and Benjamin Franklin. My appendix wasn't worth a darn to me .but proved a great benefit to Nort Dakota humanity. ^ Again, let start art apendixless club her Drop me a card or give me a buz Met O. A. Laabs on the street th other day and he was being pro pelled along with the aid of a pa; of crutches because on account o some time ago he broke a leg an he couldn't get'along so good wit a broken leg and right away wanted to run a race with him an he said if he could borrow a. hors he'd run a race with me becaus on acount of he's a good rider an< it's not a hardship on a broken le; to let the horse do the runnini and that reminds me that Mil Norton hasn't yet run that rac with me and he's getting around like in the old days again and I looks like he's afraid I might bea him. I'll take him and Laabs on together at the same time and run 'em ragged and beat 'em some time When my wind is functioning properly and which I've got a lo of sometimes and not so much ai other, times. 1 took off my coat the other day because on account I was helping Earl Sprage get out the ODM anc right away everybod|y, inclpdlng Lawrence Gilledpie, commented on the supenders and said they were loud enough to play in the municipal 'band and they are red, white and blue, and have got elastic in 'em and Frank Zender said should have paid two bucks for 'em instead 'of fifty cents and a lot of curious guys have asked me about the suspenders and the color of 'em and what the dickens, and all in the world I got 'em for was to hold- my pants up and they're good at it, regardless of the noise the color makes. —o— Homer Anderson was one of the three thousand who missed the Ravings in last week's paper and he came to the office and said he should be given credit for an extra week on his subscripton because on account of the publishers hadn't given him his money's worth for one week and then he offered to sing in the Dane quartet after ht had a couple of teeth pulled on account of he said a Dane talked better Dane if he had ozone circulation through his teeth, so to speak, and he said he couldn't sing for sour apples but he hoped to improve after he had his teeth pulled. But he's got to learn to talk Dane, too.

Horace Clapsaddle wears a mustache and he'd make & good officer in the club because on account of he's had experience growing a ntee one and I guess Chas. Qst- winkle can show 'em all a mustache growing proclivity and he's slated to 'hold an office. Come on boys' let's go. Til even try to grow an adornment on my 'big upper lip. About a week ago, one of those cold icy mornings Wen French lost a rubber—ioff his left foot— when it got stuck on >the P. O. steps and he walked right on up to the rationing office and never missed It and Howard Platt says thafs no way to conserve rubber- and suggests Wen get rubbers for his feet which ain't so big they fall off and him not knowing it and I've heard of guys losing their shirt but this is the first time I've ever heard of a man losing a rubber while he was still wearing It, so to speak. Ten of Algona's most prominent citizens held a dunking match at James 1 one morning last week and Bert Palmer was given the trophy for being the most artistic doughnut dunker in town with Gene Schemel running him a close second and low score was won by Jack Long because orr account of he got his finger mixed up in the hole and that's against the rules. Joe Bloom was third, and Jim Pool, Andy Phillips, Earl Gillette, Ralph Miller, Jewel Patterson, came trailing behind. But those guys all know why is a doughnut ind how to dunk it at that. Sherm Plotter says a doughnut is the healthiest of foods because/on account of the hole in It has no place :or germs or microbes to hang onto. On the other hand some men get sick when they eat the hole in a doughnut so they munch arourrd t. But dunking takes care of all that because on "account of the doughnut, hole and all, drown be:ore the/re consumed. Hats off to the elite of Algona dunkers. —o— fW. T. Kennedy of Burt was in he other day and when I asked him was a he Swede he asked me did Kennedy sound like Lindquist, jindholm, Thoreson, Anderson or jindgren? And it didn't so I gather he must be somewhat Irish De- cause on account of Kennedy was a name handed down ever since he snakes were driven out of Ire- and and I apologize to Mr. Kennedy and I'm for him because on account of I like the Irish arid they have some of the prettiest Irish girls and I like them, too. And about the same time Otto Ruhnke jf the Whittemore neighborhood :ame in and I knew Ruhnke wasn't an Irish or Dane name and so we alked about the weather and that guy can repeat history of Kossuth feather for years back and he ion't claim to be no weather profit ither. Just the same Kennedy and Ruhnke both read this paper, Cossuth's greatest family home ever, and both of "em are going o read this and to both of 'em I ake off my hat.
