HAGGARD & R. B. WALLER, Publisher* Batftred AS Second Class Matter at the Postoftice at Alirona Iowa, under Act of Congress Of March 8, 1879 ' tMued Weekly NATIONAL EDITORIAL*. SSOCIATIN ttocond Place, General Excellence, Iowa Prow, 1*40 First Place Award Winner, 1033, Iowa's Most Outstanding; Weekly, Judged by State University of Iowa A recent survey by Ufa Gallup people showed thnt if Roosevelt Is not 6 candidate He'nfy WftHaC6 (( noW vice president, is favored for th« 4 democratic nbmt* nation by 57% of the democrats. Trailing Waltef-6 were McNutt with 28%, Byrnes 16%, and Douglas 21%. In our opinion 'President Roosevelt will almest surely be the nominee of the democrats If the Wftf continues, notwithstanding: the fact that he had alienated the middle west,and th6 south in the past few years. We think that' Henry Wallace would be' a weak candidate for the democrats to' nominate Henry Is a high-minded gentleman, but has beautiful Visions of a perfect post war world, that some times sounds childish In these stirring days. What is wanted down at Washington just now Is,a hardheaded business man whose mind has been cleared ,of all dreams and who will deal with world affairs in a practical manner. Someone like Jim Farley, Wendell Willkie, or even old Jack Garner. Senator Gillette would also make a fine chief executive.

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 Gillette For President Now that it is becoming more and more likely that President Roosevelt Is being groomed as a candidate for a fourth term in the 1944 election, the names of other democrats are frequently mentioned by democrats who do not fancy a fourth term for any president, and also by the many democrats who are antagonistic to the president, of which there are a constantly growing number. Senator Guy Gillette of Iowa, who has stated that he would not accept another term as senator, is generally acknowledged by democrats as well as republicans as a man who would flll the presidential office very satisfactorily to both democrats and republicans. Senator Gillette is rated a good democrat but IN no New Dealer, and in fact it was attempted to read him out of the party .by President Roosevelt, when he refused to sanction Roosevelt's court packing scheme some years ago. He is honest and able and is really above party lines. We have heard no republicans criticizing his senatorial record. He has always used his efforts in behalf of his Iowa constituents and the middle west. For the past year he has been making a valiant fight for the establishment of corn alcohol plants for the manufacture of synthetic rubber. It now looks as though his long fight has not been in vain. — Rationing Begins March 29th EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard The War Time Newspaper The Algona Upper Des Moines is running with a reduced force in the mechanical department as well ns in the business office and find it necessary if we are to continue in business to ask our advertisers and correspondents for their indulgence and cooperation. Five of our employees in the mechanical department have joined up with the armed forces, besides one of the publishers. However, we hope to continue in keeping up the standard established during 77 years of continuous publication. Correspondents are now asked to have their letters in this office not later than Tuesday and sooner if convenient. Of course a murder or something sensational may be handled at the last minute and the telephone should be used in such cases. All display advertisements requiring composition should . be in the office not later than Wednesday noon for the Thursday noon paper. The sooner these ads are in the better attention they will get. Church notices and like stuff must be in early to insure publication. Want and classified ads will take long chances after Wednesday noon. We feel sure that everyone •will recognize the situation and help us out by their cooperation. Algona and Iowa folks generally who may be complaining that the rationing of meat, butter and other eatables will be a real hardship when it goes into effect on March 29th, should live on the west coast where it has been found impossible to get meat and butter in the San Francisco bay district to meet the amount of the allowed ration of two and a half pounds of meat and a quarter of a pound of butter per week. On account of price ceilings allowing stock raisers so''small a margin of profit little stock is being butchered. It is estimated that residents of the San Francisco bay area will be lucky if they are able to buy more than a pound and one-eighth of meat per person and a very small amount of butter. During January and February California folks were able to buy only one-' eighth of a pound of butter a week and In some localities only one-eleventh of a pound during recent weeks. On the west coast it is said that many wholesale houses have closed on account of the uncertain prices and the many restrictions. Or ts this just a big noise made by the meat dealers and dairy get the OPA to raise the price ceiUngs? People generally, we think, are trying to take the rationing of food cheerfully, but at best it is a rather ticklish job. Idle Presidential Talk The air is full of conjectures as to whether President Roosevelt will seek a fourth term, but of It is idle to talk about this at present, as any day .may make a complete change in the war situation on which the fourth term candidacy is predicated. Subscriber For Fifty Years Mr. H. E. Miner, well known Algona man, remarked Tuesday while pay-ins his subscription, that he had taken the Upper Des Moines for the past fifty years, first subscribing in 1894, before the consolidation of the Upper Des Moines and the Republican. And we might remark that Mr. Miner has always paid for his paper in advance. Tills paper has many old friends who have taken the paper for many years and it is needless to say that we value their continued support and friendship. How to keep an Gar Healthy Watch out for these symptoms: If your motor gasps, grunts, pants, and puffs ... if it seems to be developing hardening of the arteries ... if it tires easily, and chews up gas and oil without digesting them... do something, quick! Chances are that you have made the mistake of chinking that because you use your cir less, it needs less care. So drive to your nearest 66 Service Station. Tell the friendly Phillips man that you want his Care-Vor-Yiiiir-Ciir-For- Yoiir-Cuunti-j service. And what a going- over your car will get! 1. Car-conserving lubrication of every moving part, including differential and transmission. 2. Oil change, it necessary. 3. Cleaning and re-setting of spark plugs. 4. Battery check-up. 5. Cooling system inspection; 6. Tire check-up. If your car does noc need all of chese services, the Phillips man will frankly cell you so. He's the doctor. Just be sure to take your car to him regularly . . . every two months at least. Remember, you are always welcome at the Orange and Black 66 Shield, whether you buy one coupon's worth of famous Phillips 66 Gasoline or merely want water or air.

V&nNess has got the best system for taking care of the hole in the/ doughnut when he dunks it, and he says he saves , the-hole and feeds It to the dog. Now there's an Idea and it don't seem to hurt; the dog none, I'm going to get a dog and that'll take care of the hole In the doughnut situation at our house. I've been hanging the doughnut holes on a peg in the closet rather <n get sick eating 'em but the Mrs; says she's tired of having the closet all cluttered up with doughnut crumbs. —o— About the flf^t of next month we're moving off Main street after having lived In a nice apartment all winter and didn't have ho walks to shovel and we're moving to an acreage and It's right across from the Academy and the Mrs. says it's time we moved close to a school because on account of It wouldn't hurt my mentality to get a bit of learning and which t guess I need. And then there Is a lot of pasture around the house and maybe I can arrange to rent that out for a couple of cows and maybe I can put ;he acreage to hay and sell a couple of loads of hay off it, anything so I won't have to borrow a lawn mower to push all over the place next summer. Then there's the garden, looks like a couple of acres, and we can plant that to beans and carrots and can 'em and Gene Hood ives just across the alley from us and he says 1 can borrow his farm- ng tools but he didn't say he was joing to do any of the hoeing. There's a porch on the house and I'm extending an Invitation to our riends to come out and see us and :hey can sit on the porch and let ;hei-r feet hang over b^it bring your rationing points with you, in case you don't have any ducks to bring. Found another Dane in this town and he's been here all along and t's "Tony" iDidriksen and he's a Drinter, and, like me, another Dane, le's a good one because on account ;hat's one thing we Danes are— jood at whatever we undertake, but Tony admitted he couldn't sing so good and he wasn't so hot for sing- ng in the Dane quartet and maybe Duane wouldn't want him to put in a lot of time practicing in the Advance office unless he practiced in Snglish and then there's Martin Didriksen and Soren Didriksen and :hey're Danes, too, but I don't know whether they can sing so good or not but they aren't printers either of them which is smart for them mt now whenever "Tony"' comes over to the UDM shop he and I >alaver in Dane and it makes Earl prague half mad at us because on account of he can't understand Dane palaver. In the post office the other day I thought I'd got in the wrong hatchery because on account of there were a lot of little chicks and they were peeping away and sounded just like the Cotton Hatchery at Lone Rock, there must have been a million of 'em and Wade Sullivan says he's going to have the boys take care of the hatchery business and Harold Lamprlght is to see to the water for the chicks and Don Smith is to take care of the feeding of 'em and Halbert Long will regulate their peeping when they get too loud and when I found out it was the post office and not a hatchery I dug up and bought a three cent stamp and it wasn't a hatchery after all. —o— This last week Hank Furst cut my hair, not because it needed it because on account of. it's still winter but the Mrs. insisted she wasn't going to tie it up with ribbon and there was John Storms and he had his hair cut and (Hank said John was almost as good looking as Clark Gable and so John and I ore putting on a contest, sort of beauty contest, like Norman Rice and Jimmie Murtagh had one time, and Hank said why didn't I let him work on my physiognomy and make me pretty and then have my picture printed In "Life" magftMhe and get a thousand bucks for that and I give him half aftd he'd give me back the 50o If of 1 making me pretty. There's an Idea and maybe I could get John Storms to go along and we'd get 2,000 tucks and split 'eni among ourselves. •- '.. '• —n—> This Is to notify the citizens of Algona that I intend to run for mayor In next week's election. I'd run for the council Irt my ward but 1 want to give everybody a chance In other wards to yo,te for me so It's mayor I'm running for. Besides there's more money in It because on account of some times folks get tight and then they're haled to the mayor's court and the mayor gets some of the costs and a councilman never gets in on that and anyway the mayor is the boss of the councilmen and I like to be the' bosa. I urge voters In Algona to vote 'for me for mayor, I promise 'eni anything and everything that goes with good mayoring which I pan give 'em because on account of I'm plenty smart. Fred Timm had a notion to run for mayor but he Withdrew in my favor. I had to buy the coffee for Chas. LaBarre to keep him out of the race and Harold Golmore had me guessing a few days before he decided to stay out of the race and it's a cinch I wouldn't have much chance with that bunch running against me. Frank Kohlhaas says he welcomes my entry into the contest .because on account of he says Gene Sehemel is going to vote for him and that would kill the vote-my Mrs. would give me. Nevertheless I'm in the race, folks. I solicit your vote next Monday. Maybe I can arrange to make it worth your while, too. Contact my manager, Bob James. " ' Ernest Peterson made me a proposition the other day and said if I'd buy an ebelskyv pan he'd have his Mrs. show me how to mix 'em, and he'd furnish the ingredients and I could bake ebleskywer to my heart's content..And there's an idea but it's fine of Ernest to make the proposition but he says he's one Dane who doesn't intend to . sing for me or anyone else because on account of he is saving his strength and wind for bowling and which he's plenty good at. But he also likes ebelskyvver and says they give him as much muscle for bowling as spinach gives Popeye for battling. I'm going out to Ernest's place one of these days and eat with him and I'll devour as many ebelskyvver as he does at the one sitting, so to speak. Mike Doyle of neai< dttosen was | in the other day and he tells me 1 that Doyle is not a Swedish name nor Norwegian either but that it's Irish and that don't mean shanty Irish either and I'm for him because on account of he is as proud of being Irish as I am of being Dane and that's going some. , —o— "Fuzzy" Robinault has got the slickest pair of glasses made of glass and a 'bright red celluloid frame which matches his complexion and they are the kind a guy can flip off his snoot and throw 'em out the door and they don't break and now if I can get a pah- like that I won't have to worry about somebody holding my glasses while I have an. argument with some guy who might want to commit mayhem on me and I can fix up a black eye for a couple of bucks but my glasses cost me 22 bucks, hence I'm going to get some specs like .Fuzz/s though they may not be so loud In color, so to speak. And Luke Killion, he's the gentleman from Carroll county who knows the same banker that I know, 'but we don't owe the bank anything, he says if he could get some green one she!d make an Investment for new specs, too. iL , .
