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 "X ork, 1918 EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard The Higher Education Colossal ignorance of American history was shown by a recent survey made by the New York Tirno.s among the students of thirty-six colleges and universities in which 7,000 students participated. Out of that number there were 1,705 who did not know that Lincoln was president during the Civil "War. That was an even one-fourth of the 7,000 included in the survey. More than 150, mostly fro.n the south, believed that Jefferson Davis was then president; 25 said it was George Washington. Others listed included Woodrow Wilson, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Tuft and Warren G. Harding. Only 1,027, or 15 per cent, knew that William jMcKinley was president during the Spanish-American war. The most common reply was "Theodore Roosevelt." However, even Theodore Roosevelt was not well known. Only 19 per cent of the college freshmen could name two significant contributions he had made to the nation. Many credited him with various New Deal agencies initiated by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Nearly 100 students believed Herbert Hoover had been president during World War I. Only 70 per •cent named Woodrow Wilson. Only 22 per cent could name two significant •contributions made to his country by Lincoln. More • than 100 said he had caused the Civil war. Others said he had "emaciated" the slaves. Several said he was the first president of the United States. The survey revealed astonishing lack of ability to spell, as well as lack of knowledge of historical tacts. Replies indicated that 29 per cent had never lieard of John D. Rockefeller. Nearly 1,000 college freshmen called him either an ''oil magnet" or a "steel magnet." Nearly 1,000 replies called Jay Cooke, the financier, a North Pole explorer, while more than 500 3dentiflcd him with the Jay treaty with England. William James, pioneer American psychologist, "was identified .by only 9 per cent, about half associating him with Jesse James as a bandit. John Burroughs, the naturalist, was confused by 40 per cent with the inventor of the adding m;i- .chino or the typewriter. Prominent men of today are little better known \han those of yesterday. Correct identifications of representative men were listed as follows: Carter 'Glass, 30 per cent; James F. Byrnes, 38; Norman 'Thomas, 40; Speaker Sam Rayburn, 40; Undersecretary of State Sumner Welles, 46. Only 6 per cent could name the thirteen original states. Texas, Oregon and Nebraska were among those listed. One student listed among duties of congress, "power of voting on appeasement of the president." It is safe to assume that practically all of these students belonged to some Greek letter society and were learning more about the art of snobbery than they were about American history. An Algona business man, now dead, told us some-years ago that the most he learned in college was how to play a :good game of poker and to wear lavender sock.*, ;and that he afterwards found out that his game •oE poker was not thoroughly learned. "Praise the iord and pass the ammunition." Solid South Wavering It is always refreshing to see newspapers and •ordinary citizens rise above partisan politics arid express their convictions without regard to how it •will affect their chances for the local postoffice or other political plums given out usually to the boys -who "vote 'er straight." Many newspapers of late .years are not being lead around by the professional politicians of the party of their choice but speak out their own opinions and feel free to criticize their •own party as well as the opposition party. Notably :among these editors is Jack Hammond, able editor of the Decorah Journal. Mr. Hammond ha4 for years owned and edited one of the leading democratic papers of northeastern Iowa, but has reserved the right to take issue with the party bosses when in his opinion the occasion arises. Another editor who has shown his independence of party politics is Earl Hall of the Mason City Globe-Gazette. The Gazette is an old-time republican paper but Editor Hall never fails to voice his own opinions, which quite frequently are antagonistic to the views of his party bosses. These editors are above party politics and their views are not influenced by hopes of personal gain, and are therefore of more weight than any party organs could possibly be. Editor (Hammond under the heading, "Solid South Wavering," last week printed the following article: "Isn't It likely that they (some Democrats) have come to realize how fast this government of ours is slipping toward a new conception of government entirely foreign to what it was intended to be and has been during all of its years of unequalled progress? "Consider this one thing alone—government waste. Senator JByrd, of Virginia, has long and courageously opposed extravagance in government spending. It has grown beyond comprehension—grown so that many of us dismiss the thing as a hopeless subject to bring . . . "Isn't it possible that many of the New Deal . . . former supporters see that as plainly ns Republican students of politics and economics?" The foregoing is from the Northwood Anchor, staunchly Republican newspaper. This editorial we believe pictures the situation in the South today, though written concerning another situation. The Solid South is not so solidly Democratic. In 1928 Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Texas and Tennessee broke away from the Democratic column to go Republican. Just recently at a political conference of Southern Democrats, Senator Claude Pepper of Florida was sent back to Washlngcon with the message of Southern governors that "if Roosevelt wanted the South's support HI 1944 ho must talk turkey now" as the news magazine TIAMi! puts it. In other words, the Roosevelt forces must give the South a different deal to keep the South in Democratic party ranks. "After ten years of the New Deal, the South may be cracking again," comments TIME. "The cracks: "New Deal 'meddling' with the Negro problem, which the South wants to solve in its own way and at its own chosen time. (Chief offender in Southern eyes: 1 Eleanor Roosevelt.) "New Deal labor legislation—anathema to the open-shop South. "Farm policy and price control—which many a Southern farmer hates like the boll weevil. "States' rights, a convenient term for resentments against bureaucracy, red tape, rationing forms, etc. "In the 1944 Democratic convention, the South will bo solid only if it lines up unanimously against Franklin Roosevelt. It is full of potent politicos who would fight to the last ditch against Term IV or a hand-picked Roosevelt candidate. "The great unknown is whether the South's plain citizens think as their leaders do. If the rank and file are still solidly pro-Roosevelt, the rebellious noises of the leaders are only sound and fury. But if Southern citizens are losing faith in the President at anything like the rate of their leaders, the Fourth Term campaign is, in for a harrowing time." RAVIHGS A LlttU of This » A Littl« of thai » Not Much df Anything Iowa Legislature Adjourns The Iowa legislature finally adjourned last week after stopping the clock for a couple of days so that would seem that they were adjourning on the day set. Of course this is a little childish practice that has been indulged in during many terms and is on par with changing the date for Thanksgiving and threatening to decree that Christmas should come on the Fourth of July and other typical New Deal tricks to attract attention. We think as a whole that the legislators performed their duties well and come home to receive the thanks of their constituents for a sensible and economical handling of the public funds. One of the things they should be commended for was the .refusal to change the daylight savings time. Any change in the time now would simply muddle up matters. The change in time originally caused much confusion and served no good purpose, but now that it is nationwide a change would be even more confusing. The Lumber Scarcity The lumbermen of Iowa are claiming a "dangerous lumber shortage" according to information furnished this office by the Raesly Lumber Co., of Algona. A recent survey by members of the Iowa Retail Lumber Dealers Association developed the shortage, which it is claimed will lower the production of farm and dairy products so much needed in the all-out war effort. The survey showed (hat the minimum lumber needed for the repair and maintenance of present Iowa farm buildings amounted to 373,617,887 board feet. Over three thousand farmers answered the questionaires showing that they needed over five hundred million board feet to repair and build new hog houses, poultry houses, sheep sheds, grain bins, and all the other necessary farm buildings. The survey showed that a great majority of Iowa lumber dealers are out of boards and other necessary lumber, and are not in a position to furnish lumber to their farm trade. Those who did have some lumber in stock did not have enough to take care of 20% of the demand. We all know that the farmers are depended on to raise enough to feed the world in war, but it should not all be blamed upon the war production board that there is not enough lumber to fill all the needs of war at this time. It may be that some of Iowa's pigs, chickens and cows will have to sleep in the open this summer, the same as hundreds of thousands of our brave young men are now doing in Africa and other far flung battle fronts of the world. Nevertheless, cut out all red tape and let us have lumber enough to house the pigs and chickens if possible. Discard Nudeal to Win Decorah Journal: If the Democratic party is to have a fair chance in the 1944 presidential election, the southern Democrats and the Democrats of the Jeffersonian, Jackson, Cleveland and Wilson Democratic viewpoints who believe in free enterprise will have to regain control of the party from the bureaucrats. To make real headway in Iowa against the splendid type of leadership Governor Hickenlooper is now providing will be difficult. Labor Leaders in the Saddle Webster City Freeman-Journal Montgomery Ward & Company are certainly justified, in the opinion of the Freeman-Journal in complaining vigorously against the Labor Board's demand that the company establish a form of closed shop called Maintenance of Membership, together •with a check-off of union dues from wages. Under such a form of closed shop employes xvho are members of the union would not be permitted to resign from the union without being dis- •charged and Wards would not be allowed to retain ;an employe, no matter how 'badly needed nor how •competent to perform the duties required. The Freeman-Journal remembers distinctly ~when President Rosevelt declared about a year sago that "The government will not order, nor will congress past* legislation ordering the so-called dotted shop." Yet government officials are issuing ••orders contrary to this presidential statement, which might properly be called a pledge. The Freeman-Journal agrees with Ward's assertion that "The board's demand not only violates "the fundamental principles of liberty, but are economically unsound and illegal under the terms of the national labor relations act." We are now fighting to retain our freedom and liberty, 'but the government makes demands up- on Montgomery Ward & Company to surrender its just rights to employ men who do not choose to pay tribute to some organization to which they do not wish to belong. The board also ordered that Wards guarantee its wages arrd other working conditions for a one- year period. That is most assuredly an unreasonable demand under the present outlook for the future. No body knows what is going to happen and such an agreement on the part of big companies that are engaged in highly competitive fields of retail 'business might cause them to suffer very severely, even to the point of being wrecked financially, as some of them were during the dark days of the late depression following World War I. The check-off is unfair to 'both wage earners and employers. It requires the employer to pay the monthly dues of union members, deducting it from their wages- This- check-off scheme was devised by crafty labor leaders who wanted union members to be forced to pay their dues whether they wanted to remain in the unions or not. It is unfair to employers in that it requires a lot of accounting that they should not in fairness be required to do. Yet congresses and legislatures have been so weak, so scared at the union vote, that they enacted legislation allowing the check-off system. Most every day I find aotne mori Danes In Kossuth county, in fac one of these days we'll probablj find that Kossuth is equal to that famous Denmark known AS Rlng- sted from a Danish standpoint and the other day there was Alfred Jorgenson came in to look me over and he said I was better looking than my picture and he was frank and said he always had wondered what sort of a geek I was (I'm glad he didn't call me a gink like Dr. Cretslmeyelr does) and Friday in came Henry C. Nelson and he stuck; out his paw and said Goddag Herr Reese and that was Dane and he was a Dane and he lives in Wesley township and he says there are some good Danes over there and some of 'em are Mr. and Mrs. Louis Larson and Mrs. Marie Hanson and Roy and Cora and Lawrence Larson and up In Plum Creek we have Thorvald Larson and Henry says he's going to scratch up some more Danes over there, but they can all read 'English and which I can too and every day in every way the Danes are becoming more prominent in Kossuth and of which I am proud because on account of they all know what frlkadiller are. Leo Walters was over from Whlt- temore Friday and he same in and said we were sending him two papers and it was all right with him because on account of now that two came to his house there wasn't any fighting over which should read the paper first and he said they could get along with one paper because on account of his Mrs. always got to read it first anyway so we're only sending him one from now on. —o— And Henry Ewaldt he told me the other day that one week he got a paper and there was nothing printed on the inside of it and I asked him could he read very good and he said he couldn't read too good but his Mrs. was a good reader and she thought they ought to have a paper which was printed all over and which they should have, too, and then Herman Maahs pipes up and said that he had just paid his dues in the coffee gulpers but he didn't always gulp of coffee, sometimes it was milk and tea. and buttermilk but no matter what that guy gulps He can sure take a hole out oft! tire quicker'n scat and you'd never know there had been a hole there and I'm proud to have him a member of the gulpers. Jim Murtogh was home from the army this week and he's been getting this paper out there in California and he says the boys In the camp out there call this paper the mackeral wrapper and that's a sort of fishy name, so to speak, maybe the boys have been reading the fishy bunk In this column, and hence the mackeral name, but Jim comes home here looking like Norman Rice and Herman Barker beat for good looks and it looks like he'd won the race of being the best looking of the three .of 'em and which was started a year ago. —o— I was all shaved up nice the other day and I met Roy Bjustrom and he says to me who are you and I told him it was a military secret and then Fred Zelgler came along and Roy asked him who was I and Fred said I looked like one of those Algona guys but he did not say which one and now I'm wondering did he mean an Algona guy which I didn't want to be like and if I'm going to be under suspicion every time I shave I'll quit shaving and grow me nice whiskers like Charley Chubb and which I think I can do if they give me time enough. If I'm going to look like an Algona guy I want to look like a regular good guy. —o— In the Security bank the other day I went in to draw my breath again and there was Mrs. John Simon and she was visiting with Mrs. Frank Zeimett, of West Bend, and they were talking in a language which I didn't understand and it wasn't Dane and so I thought maybe they were talking about mo in Swede but Mrs. Simon said it wasn't Swede but lit was Luxembourg and which I didn't savv3' either but John Simon was there and he said they were talking about the nice weather and he promised me they weren't going to sing in Luxembourg and which is what we Danes do, sing in Dane. Their visit sounded nice, though, and Ito ftbdut feady to take up Ing to talk Lu*ehib]6urg. AUNT LVCY*S Helpful Hint* MEAL puumma - COOKING - SEWMQ How many ways can you serve potatoes?
