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 The republican party has been warned by no less a democratic authority than Nicholas Murray But* ler, president of Columbia University . and also president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, that If they continue their Isolationist attitude It would be a waste of time and money for the party to make any nomination for president next year. A recent poll of the members of the Senate showed 82 senators opposed to any commitment to a league of the nations to preserve the peace of the world after the war; 24 were in favor; 32 undecided and eight could not be contacted. It Is not understood that the survey was made on party lines and we have no means of knowing just how many of the isolationists were democrats. We do know that Senator Burton Wheeler of Montana, leading democratic senator, is a prominent isolationist, and there are probably others belonging to the democrat party. It is true that the late Senator Lodge of Massachusetts and other prominent republicans defeated entrance to the (League of Nations by the United States In 1919. President Wilson at that time had made enemies of a number of the leading republicans by refusing to consult with them in the handling of post war matters. That condition does not exist at present between Roosevelt and sensible republicans. Two of the leading republicans of the country are in the Roosevelt war cabinet and it don't seem to us that the isolation idea should be reckoned with along party "lines. It may be that even Senator Wheeler and Col. Lindbergh, himself, have seen enough to convince them that something should be fixed up to prevent future wars. RAVINGS ft REESE A Little e< Thit -. A L!ttU ofThat .. Not, Much of Anything Opinions of Other Editors EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard Critical Stage of the War ri' Of course we all know that the world war Is > and will be, at its most critical stage this summer ^ and the outcome is hard to predict. Our forces * '4 in the Pacific it is claimed by some, including Gen. f MacArthur, are inadequate to meet the threatened invasion of Australia, which is considered imminent by many. It is said that China may collapse this summer on account of our being unable to get arms and supplies to them. Gen. Wavell it is understood has been forced to retire from his invasion of Burma, and will have to wait for autumn before continuing his attempt to recapture the Burma Road. These conclusions have been voiced by some |of the gloomy war commentators including Mark Byers. He says that man for man, ship for ship, plane for plane it has been demonstrated that ifr Americans and Australians are better than the -^f Japs, but Japan is free to concentrate upon this I/A one front almost the entire weight of her empire, "A including all of her naval power, her merchant i» shipping, and perhaps two-thirds of her 'best troops. 7||> Japanese production for war is growing steadily f '"' v fed by raw materials from Indo-China, Burma, Malaga and the Dutch Indies, comprising one of i; : '-'X'iA~./st sectors of the world. l\r,( , K » * * ^ The'situation'in'Europe and Africa'Is" more ' hopeful in Mr. Byers estimation. He says that we have "millions" of mien now fighting in Tunisia, and there Is United Nations domination of the air on all of the European fronts. In Tunisia he ex- 1 pects ultimate victory after a fight to the death by the forces of Germany and Italy. He says an .attempted . evacuation would mean the greatest |xnassacre of history. * * * >As far as this writer is concerned, we have •implicit faith in our military and naval heads, and lince Pearl Harbor we feel that they have made 10 notable blunders. It is of course easy for arm ',air patriots to sit on the side lines and criticize '(nothing they know nothing about. We are just ;ow reaching our stride in the production of planes, ihips and guns. Last month over 7,000 'bombers and " hters were turned out in the United States alone, at means 84,000 this year. We think that this lone guarantees sure defeat for our enemies in ie long run. It'is perhaps true that some of these Janes should be sent to MaoArthur and to China, d We are confident that they will be sent as Heaven On Earth Wright County Monitor: The administration's social security .bill that was recently presented to congress is said to be the political platform of Franklin D. .Roosevelt in his fourth term candidacy in, 1944. It has been laid away in congress but will be called up before 1944—rest assured of that. It has created much comment and has been ridiculed by some .and praised by others. Senator Claud Pepper, of Florida, a New Deal enthusiast, said it was "magnificent." He thought it was nothing short of magic. At the same time Mississippi's Congressman John Rankin (Democrat) who hates the New Deal, said it was "the most fantastic conglomeration of bureaucratic stupidity ever sent to congress." When it 'bobs up again about six months from now, he may change his mind. (However, it is clearly a bid for votes in 1944. It calls for security for all human beings from the cradle to. the grave. The British have dubbed it "security from womb to tomb." At no place in it is there even a hint of reconstructed finances after the war, no curtailment of expenses, reduction of war machinery or other practical matters that will be vital then. It is typically New Deal because it calls for the expenditure of billions and billions of dollars without taking a single thought of where they are to come from. It is ideal in anticipation and ridiculous in practice.'The voters will see its weaknesses and refuse to be fooled. * * » Where Cowles Stands Politically Decorah Journal: In an exhaustive article on Garret Wclhoiisen, of four mile north of Tltonka and one of the bi shots in the AAA but otherwise swell guy, tells me he's going t plant watermelons and I asked him could I come up and steal some an ie said If he caught me in the pate he'd shoot at me with both 'barrel and then I asked the county attor ney, W. H. Miller, would he prose cute if I was Caught stellng an; of Garret's melons and he said h should but he might issue a search warrant and let me go out ther and search for potato bugs or some hing but if Garret was suspicion and shot at me with both barrel; here wasn't anything he could d< about It and Bill Boyken, he's thi banker up there and I can draw my breath in his <bank any time aid he'd go my bond or ball or what have you if it wasn't too high and then Garret up and said he'd five me a melon If I came out after t but I'd have to eat it at home ecause on account of he didn't >vant any melon seeds scattered al ver the place. And I got a big kick out of arguing with Bill Giossi here a couple of weeks ago when he had his tonsils removed and he couldn't talk for a couple of days and had to use the sign language and which he wasn't much good at and did I have fun arguing with him and he coudn't argue 'back and I won all the arguments because on account of I couldn't understand his sign language but now he's all healed up and tonsil-less and he's getting all fixed to answer my arguments and maybe I'd just better stay away from him for fear he might out-argue even me, good as I am at it. I'm one of those public swearers which they call notary public and I've got a certificate signed by the governor of Iowa which gives me the right to swear, not the wicked sort of swearing or the blue streak sort of swearing which some folks can do artistically, but the "sworn to before me" kind and here come Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Erickson o St. Benedict and they wanted m to do some swearing on a docu ment and not the noisy voic swearing which I can't do anywaj and I signed my name and put nr seal on the document and then F. H. offered me a buck and which I could have used but I didn't hav the nerve to charge that much SL he's going to set-em-up some day if I ever get to St. Benedict and I found that Mrs. Erickson used to live at Grundy Center and I lived there one time, too, and we both knew a lot of nice people there Including the bankers and which we didn't owe anything and the Erick- sons asked me over to have a chicken dinner with 'em some day and which I'm going to do because on account of I like chicken but Mrs Erickson says she can't bake ebel- skyvver, not being a Dane, but she'll serve pancakes with the chicken if I want 'em and which shows the Ericksons are fine folks and they know my eating failings, so to speak. Met a guy from Bancroft the other day and it was Robert Drans- "eldt and he runs the liquor store up there and which doesn't mean anything to me because on account of I can't get up there to get any and he just won't bring any down lere and so I have to stick to but- ermllk when I'm thirsty but Bob did say he'd buy me a cup of coffee and which I didn't need just then, nd he also suggested that I meet up with Buttermaker Glenskie up here 'because on account of he has lot of buttermilk to deal In and maybe we could have one of those ach of us and it wouldn't cost so much. Just because we had a couple of' ice days the past week is no sign he real spring is here. The best •ay to tell when the robins nest nd it's time to plant onions and o dig out your straw hat is when he police 'force puts on khaki uni- saving 'em for years, and Janse is "agin" the straw forms and the city water depart ment turns on the drinking foun tains.on the main drag. Then, one not until then, la spring here. Thl: information and service is free. It's getting on about straw hai time again and I've got two am all they need is a bit of touching up and Chas. Ostwlnkle says he has a pick-up load of 'em, been Dr hat 'business unless it's the style to get along with one Instead of one each to match both his suits because on account of he doesn't care to have so much straw with no loft in which to put it, and Frank Capesius says the straw they put In hats now days isn't worth a darn for feed because on account of there's too much paint in ft, so he's using his last year's hat in 1943, and Del Clopton claims that be can make a straw hat as good as new for looks but if somebody wants to feed the old hat to bossy he advises that they let it stay dirty. There will be some changes in straw hat styles this year. There will be no flowers attached, the style will 'be as bare as a printer's cupboard. There will be no ear laps urnished with straw hats. In place of a pretty colored band you're supposed to dig out the old neck- ies and fix up a hat band from one of them. This year the modern traw hat will have a string at- ached with a bit of leather thong attached and this is to tie under •our chin when the wind blows anc that way you save the hat Thli Is a defense project—save your straw- pile at all costs. Because of a shortage of help in the Straw hat factories the ZBC administration suggests that the farmers take up the straw hat manufacturing because on account Of they have the straw and they know straw and they can make hats In the winter time when there ain't no planting or corn plowing to be done and so I am co-operating with the ZBQ to put over this project and I've suggested the following men for the government to contact for a set-up of the ZBQ In Kossuth county. For president of the Kossuth Straw Hat Manufacturing Society, Inc., Herman Wise; first vice president, A. B. Schenck; second vice president, Joe Rlcker; secretary, Chester Bailey; money counter, Sim (Leigh; board of direc- -ors, Keith Strayer, Homer Lind- lorst, Nick Reding, Edward Hop- tins and Chet Schoby; straw picker and analyzer, John Bormann; itraw checker for strength, Alex Sonnstetter; straw checker for uni- form color, Lawrence TTillgei I'd suggest these men get together and decide on a location for the straw hat factory. I am sure the government would not care In what ptttt of the county this could b» located so long as it Is close to a drug store because on account of 60 percent of the employees can be women and they needs must have their face and finger nail dope but they are handy for weaving the straw Into swell hats. And there should be a coffee gulping station close at hand for the guys who have to have their gulp. The government will probably appoint me Chief grand mogul to oversee and direct the building of the plant, and to keep time on the officers and the men and women who will be employed, as well as to check on the farmers who seed, grow, harvest and gather the straw for the hats. At any rate we'll get this factory going so that next winter we can make straw hats to suit the most particular and at price which will fit the average purse. And the Kossuth Straw Hat will become famous, I guarantee that. uvcra Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOHNG - SEWING and Minneapolis, Editor and (Publisher, a newspaperman's magazine, recently comments that with "John Cowles in Lend-Lease and Mike in charge of the domestic division of the office of warXnforma- tlon, the. question may arise as to where the Cowles' papers stand politically regarding the New Deal. "The Des Molnes and Minneapolis newspapers have largely supported President Roosevelt's international policies and are'behind the President 100 per;cent in winning the war. (However, they have differed sharply with many of lEDR's domestic policies, particularly with what they consider to be bad" administration of domestic affairs. "They supported Landon and Willkie." In such a policy we feel that the Cowles are following a wise course. There are good men in both parties who deserve the support of newspapers and voters, 'Honesty, ability ahd a desire to see that Americans have a chance for the pursuit of happiness should be the guiding factors. » * » Damphool Nudealers lEmmetsburg Reporter: Farmers are receiving advice from all sides as to what they should do in the war emergency. But the prize crack-brain suggestion Is the one about removing the steel shoes from horses after they have finished their day's work. Any idea as brilliant as that should be given more than passing attention, and it is helped along by a farmer at Keokuk, Iowa, who points out new angles to be considered: The Keokuk farmer writes: "* -"Press dispatches tell us of a Broadway New Deal farmer who recommends removal of horses' « as it is humanly possible. In the meantime '$25 ^J^uamto in tedded down for the night, to save wear on the shoes.

Effective "Lame Dqck" Have you tried all the possibilities of your creamed dishes? They not only present ways to make food appear elegant and to use up leftovers, but they do a grand job of stretching foods within certain limits. Many are the fancy as well as the simple combinations that answer to the name of creamed foods. Even the plainer members of this group may become most attractive if they are served in "delicious and special containers such as individual or large biscuit. rings, noodle or rice cases and the like. There are a few things to be remembered though, if these creamed specialties are to appear at their best in flavor. These include special attention to the sauce itself, the proportion of the sauce to the food to oe creamed, the containers, and whan and how to serve these foods. The basis of most creamed dishes is white sauce of medium .consistency. The proportion for a medium sauce are 2 tablespoons flour, 2 tablespoons butter or shortening to 1 cup liquid, for 1 cup sauce—2 to 2 to 1—which is easy to remember. The liquid may be milk, broth or stock, or bouillon, made with. I 'bouillon cube to a cup of hot water. Right here it might be well to say that all ingredients that are to be creamed should be thoroughly drained before putting in the sauce, so that there will be no excess moisture to thin and dilute the sauce. Another thing to remember, if the creamed dish is to be of meat, fish or fowl: Don't try to stretch it beyond the stretching powers by adding vegetables in greater pro- and toasted before filling provide a new idea. Ring Molds Press piping-hot cooked rice Into a heated buttered mold; unmold at once and fill. Don't forget ring molds of hominy, mashed potatoes, or bread dressing. Vegetable Bases - 'For lunch 'serve creamed foods over tips Of asparagus. Baked potatoes are excellent as a base for your creamed dishes. Avocado halves are nice enough for a party and are delicious. Corn pudding and rice souffle are both good as bases and for the taste too. There is no limit to the foods which may served as the main part of a meal as Creamed Foods. Do' not neglect the sauce nor stretch the food. The combinations which pleases your family most should be checked .but not repeated until they become tired of them. SWIFT'S BABY CHICKS Meat shortages have resulted in an ever-growing need for more poultry and eggs. So increase the size of your flock—with Swift's /May and June Chicks—and increase your 1948 poultry income. Swift's May and June Chicks are especially hardy—the kind that are vigorous and lively all the time. And there is a good reason why Swift's May and June Chicks are so exceptionally sturdy—disease resistant. They're bred from selected flocks only. These flocks are picked for good health, egg- producing ability. Then they are re-culled, again pullorum-tested. To be accepted, flocks must have less than £ per cent reactors. You'll get fine eggs and lots of them from Swift's Chicks, and Sne, marketable meat, too! Order them today. SWIFT & COMPANY HATCHERY GO AHEAD TALK ALL DAY WHAT DO YOU CARE IF OTHERS NEED TO CALL?

Star: When Col. Elliott Roosevelt lashed back at Rep. Lambertson of Kansas and said "let us fight without being stabbed in the back for the sake of politics" a lot of people muttered "Amen." Of all the low fouls that have been slung in the president's direction the-one by Lambertson, attacking the war record of one of Mr. Roosevelt's sons, was probably the lowest yet. 'Real Americans blushed in shame at this attack. Much as they disagree or may dislike the president it's not sportsmanship to attack his family. And when Americans lose their sense of true sportsmanship it's time to close up shop whether it be politics or business. .'There's still too much politics in Washington for efficient prosecution of the war.
