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 of America and what he wlll^dd to us wilt be plenty. There will be no veterans aid, no OAA, no gas buggies for our smart young set, a lollipop will be a luxury under the Gestapo rule. Mark you, we are not winning this war. Our gallant boys in the Pacific and North Africa and on the high seas and in the air are doing well with what equipment and support we have so far given them, but the war so far has been fought by the British'; the Russians, the Dutch, Belgians, Norwegians, Poles and Bohemians, while our leaders and statesmen tell us in bombastic tones what we are going to do to Hitler in 1944. Let us get wise to ourselves. We have tfeen five months in Africa, a year or so in the Pacific; we may be winning the war but it is too slow progress and in the meantime our wartime industrial workers led by YB agitators a're hollering for bigger pay and shorter hours when they already get $1.50 an hour for a 40-hoiir week and time and a half for over time. Even farmers, led by a few misguided leaders, are shamefully asking for parity, 'Whatever that may be, when ham is already selling for 70 cents a pound center cut, and pork is the poor man's meat. * * * When this war is won we will' have to pay through the nose for our wartime ill- considered economic spree. It is high time that our national leaders take measures to halt this inflation now in progress. After the war, our Uncle Sam will be in the position of a farmer with a $20,000 mortgage on a $19,000 farm and his kids out of a job coming home with their families to live off their old EDITORIAL COMMENT By J. W. Haggard IThe "Social Gains" May Not Be Permanent That inflation is going forward by leaps and bounds is constantly being shown by rapidly mounting prices, notwithstanding the "freezing" of food prices and the "stabilizing" of the wages of war workers and farm prices for stock and grain. Money seems to be the cheapest thing there is right now. Most people have their pockets full of money, but it takes a lot of money to buy anything lately. It is true that so far the land prices have only gone up about twenty-five or thirty per cent but it is just getting a start and •will keep on going. The government is itself responsible for much of the inflation now going on. The trouble started when the war plants out- Said the -industries and farmers for workers, taking away from the farms and necessary industries iv.ost of the workers and putting many industries out of business for lack of help. Few business places are able to pay $1.50 per hour for a forty Jhour week with time and one-half for overtime, giving unskilled workers as high as $78 for the regular 48-hoUr week, such as most are accustomed to. It all stems from the fact that there are a lot of inexperienced business heads down a* Washington who do not know that money has tc be earned by blood and sweat. The ably edited Singsted Dispatch had a few words to say on this matter last week with which we heartily agree. The Dispatch.says: * * * But worse still, Uncle Sam is borrowing the money and eventually the coins have to be paid back with backaches and sweat by our own people at 25 cents an hour and $3 liogs, or Uncle Sam will go broke and all of xis will be paupers with .no OAA pensions. And after the war we will have 20 millions of high priced laborers without jobs and scant savings roaming about and asking, "Brother can you spare a nickel for a soup bone and a few spuds." Oh yes, you farmers will be all Tight if in these flush times you pay off your •mortgages and pay cash for your purchases. Then you can sit pretty on the home farm with plenty to eat and no worries and if John Lewis succeeds in raising coal prices to $20 a ton you can again burn hay as your grandpappy « -did back in 1893. : "', * * * ~i\Joney alone will not win this war. Amer-- ica now labors under the delusion that higher wages, bigger pay for everybody from mem- jibcrs of congress to old age pensioners, will •help win the war. Congress and legislatures ^re apparently spending their time chiefly in "wage boosts and not forgetting to pad their own paychecks either. It is obvious that they could better spend their time in reducing wages and salaries, freezing prices and crack down hard on chiseling and profiteering. Make this a fighting nation of the sit at homes too, instead of a selfish bunch'of slackers. We have to win this war. Si <: * If we lose this war Hitler will take charge Defeat of Labor Boss At last John L. Lewis, the union labor racketeer and President Roosevelt came together head-on and the collision resulted' in complete defeat of the unpatriotic labor boss. Five hundred thousand coal miners struck and walked out last Saturday at the command of Lewis, but on Sunday after it became plain that the people of the country would not tolerate the wrecking of our war efforts, Lewis capitulated and ordered the men back to work by Tuesday, the wage dispute to be left to the properly constituted war labor board. This is what the President had insisted upon and it was a complete backdown by the big labor boss. President Roosevelt has always babied the union v/orkers of the country, and on one or two occasions he 'has allowed Lewis to have his way. It has become evident of late that there was bound to be a showdown to determine whether Lewis or Roosevelt was running the country. We are giad to see the president had the nerve at last to call the bluff of the arrogant and disreputable leader of the miners. We feel that the miners themselves would have gone back to work for patriotic reasons had Lewis not rescinded his strike order. Now that it is settled that Lewis is rot running the country it may be that the war effort will proceed more smoothly. Liquor Store's Good Work The Algona liquor store boys have recently been granted a ten or fifteen per cent raise in salaries, as has the entire personnel of the 178 stores in Iowa. This raise, of course, comes out of the big profits on the sales and will not affect any of the Iowa taxpayers outside of those who are customers of the stores. The staff of the Algona store comprises Manager G. D. Brundage, veteran of the last world war, Cleve Barton, Bert Palmer and Joe Bestenlehner. They have all been active in the sale of war bonds and stamps and have sold many hundreds of thousands of these government securities, some ^member of the store force calling on the many business places of the city the end of each week to sell bonds or stamps to the clerks and other employees. During the April bond drive the store sold $135,000 in bonds and stamps. If we have it rightly the Algona store has far surpassed in bonds sales every town in the state of corresponding population and many of the larger cities. This bond selling is entirely voluntary and is not required of the store employees. It is their contribution to the war effort, and it would seem that any raise in salary has been thoroughly earned. We are not in a position to know the state store conditions in other towns but so far as the Algona store is concerned we think that it has been shown that it has been at all times handled decently, patriotically and efficiently, for which the force should be given full credit. A Delicate Situation The United Nations conference, which is dated to meet at Hot Springs, Virginia, this month to deal with post war food and agricultural matters, has at the outset struck a snag which may put a crimp in the success of the meeting. It seems that Virginia allows only one pint of liquor per week to each person and state officials of Virginia have served notice that there will be no exceptions made in favor of the delegates. It may be hard for the delegates to discuss the food question until the more pressing liquor question is settled. Have A Reckoning- Coming Humboldt Republican: A soldier recently returned from the front in North Africa says that the boys over there are particularly bitter against draft dodgers, pay-hikers, overtime and time-anrl- one-half insisters at home. There will be a settlement when the boys come home. A Sensible Post War View Frank Jaqua in Clarion Monitor Thoughful men have been considering the Iiost-war problems. Questions have been asked ft how far the United States shall go in policing th-o world. Congress has been urged to go on recon! as to our intents to co-operate with the rest of tho allied nations in enforcing world peace after the \var. Congress has also been asked to extend the trade relations privilege to our national representatives in international conference and plans for the peace-time problems. Demands have been made that our nations shall at this time declare itself on these subjects. It all sounds well. It is idealistic. It tends to snake us believe that we are striving for the sac- Ted things of the world and for human liberty. It is nice to think that we want to and will extend equal privilegs and liberties to all. However it is not as simple as that. There are thousands of practical things that contact our lives and way of living in the plans proposed for idealistic world conditions. We should remember our vision of a peaceful world some twenty years ago if we would scrap our battleships nad disband our armies and show the world we didn't want to fight. Jiemember? Well, we scrapped and disbanded, and see •what we got! There are conditions just as vital in the peace plans of today. Charity begins at home. We will not be able to do much to help a Struggling world unless we are strong. We can't 'lift unless we have strength to lift with. We can do the most good in the post-war period if we retain our way of life and extend opportunities to the backward nations. That is plain, common sense. Asking congress to put itself on record to join io an international force to keep the. peace is un- 'fair. It is a question that can not be answered by a yes or no. Under fair conditions the answer is >es. If Uncle Sam is to be made the goat and •carry more than his share of the burdens, then \fche answer is no. The nations of the world and especially of tha allies should be made to understand this at the outset. We don't want a repetition of the former peace-table double dealing after this war. Asking us to extend power to make trade relations or tariff schedules to our representatives iu international conferences is more than can be expected. None but the national congress should have such power. There is too much potential dynamite in it. Clearly we should* extend eveiry trade relation we can and retain our own national safety and standard of living. We must do that much. But we can't trade our way of life for the benefit, as example, of China. We should go even to the extent of surrendering some of our privileges for the beiefit of others. Be we plainly can not destroy our own prosperity. That would be foolish and suicidal. And still, that is what fanatical enthusiasts urge. It was not very long ago that a speaker at a meeting of local business and professional men said that he had been told by government representatives that before this war was over our women would be operating spinning wheels as their great, great grandmothers did one hundred years ago. The thought that we will be called on to scrap giant looms and go back to hand weaving is not serious enough to be more than amusing. And still that has been taught by men who posed as representing the government. Jn preparing to do our share in the post-war world your Uncle Samuel should make it plain to one and all that he \s anxious to do his share of the things that are necessary to be done and that are done in a sensible way. Pledging ourselves at this time to do the will of an international league would be foolish. Pledging ourselves to take in duty free products that will impoverish or destroy our local industries would be criminally foolish. Pledging ourselves to admit agricultural products that will undermine and destroy our national production would quickly spell the end. We should get it into our minds that trade rs- lations between nations make or break the contracting parties unless they are fair. And unless they are fair they should be refused. Only congress, the representatives of the people, are qualified to say what is fair. This is not idealistic. But it is sound, common sense that should be heeded. *"••""" •"•-•• '-— ^-.......j^..-1> .. .^......^..^-.^i.,^ RAVINGS A LlttU of Thli - A Llttlt of Th«t Net Much bf Anything t can't Imagine what's folrtff wrong over at Whittemore bu here on Monday three prominett Whlttemorlans, Postmaster John Cullen, Banker and Justice of the Peace John Uhlenhake and Cil.y Fireman and" merchant Jimmie Geelan, all three of 'em togethe at one time on the main drag here in the county seat and John askec me did I want him to sing anc which he can't do for sour applo and Jimmie asked me'did the cltj want'him to wash the fire engini and at which he's good, while John Cullen just lit a bran new cigar and grinned and the boys hat their car parked in front of th liquor store and that ain't no place to park a car, because' on accoun of some folks here in the count; seat might think they were using their ration coupons and, which they weren't but next time thej come over here they should park in front of a church and then folk; won't be suspicious and John ant Jimmie both declared they could learn to talk my language bu here's hoping they don't get the notion they can sing. And the very next day, abou 24 hours later, who should I mee' up with right here on the main drag but Henry Geelan and Pete Granger, both of 'em also from Whittemore and gee, that town's getting vlsity as the dickens i seems and I asked Henry was he still a judge and he said he wasn and that he was over to visit the ration board and he hoped they'd ask him out to dinner which the board doesn't do on account of they have to ration their own meat, too, and I asked Pete how come he was associating with Henry and he said he couldn't help it because on account of this was a free country and he and Henry had just met in front of the bank but they didn't intend to buy out the place but they had heard that Ralph Miller had given Fred Timm a lot of publicity in the Iowa State Bank Ravings about having a lot of potatoes and Henry and Pete thought they might buy some and which they coudn't. Nevertheless both Henry and Pete are O. K. and I arranged with Chief Moulds to give me a buzz if there was any bail needed for either of 'em and they parked their car in front of the UDM office, not the liquor store. This town had a lot of distinguished visitors the past week and from Fenton here comes Everett Dreyer and Lawrence Alt and they came right into the UDM office and, Everett hasn't changed a bit since lived in Fenton and was his neighbor and he ain't a bit more afraid of me now than he was then and Lawrence came down to see ;he ration board and wanted to enow was there a bounty on rab- jits because on account of Lawrence had a BB gun and thought could murder a lot of hares ;his summer and Everett said he iad a real gun but no ammunition and he was going to go hunting "or night crawlers so some of the >oys like Clarence Theesfleld and lay Priebe and Alvin Zumach and Wilfred Stoeber and Dr. Ruske -ould go' fishing and for which hey paid a nickel per crawler and t looks like Everett had the best notion as to how to make a lot of noney this summer and then he paid a year's subscription to this Cossnth Youth's Companion and vhich shows he's got patience and ortitude when he reads this bunk. T fiddled for the VFW banquet he other night and H. S. Mont- ornery set me between Chief Art idoulds and Nick Maharas just as : I was trying to get away and ate 7 biscuits and that was s far as I could count and right cross the table was a Dane, Harey Johnson, of St. Benedict, and e understood my palaver but icy wouldn't let him sing and [enry Arndqrfer gets his mail out f Corwith but goes to St. Bene- ict a lot and he said he knew larvey and was glad there wasn't oing to be any Dane singing until From trre Fifes TEN" YEARS AGO "Mrs. Temple's Telegram" was le title of the senior class play nder the direction of Mrs. EUsa Goeders. The cast included Everett ;owman , Adris Anderson, Ruth lobinson, Dick Gowan, Mildred bright, James Bishop, Roland Laron, Willard Zeigler and Margaret igars. 'Rachael Becker, Kossuth county pelling champion, was to go to DCS Moines to compete in the state ontest. A member of the Upper Des iloines staff was asked for a loan f a dollar and a quarter. The money was to be used to pick up collect package at the post office. After some deliberation the' loan vas refused. Later It was found hat the package to be picked UR ontained job printing ordered out if town. ' c The Chrischilles & Herbst store. Jrahams,. Kohlhaas &. Spilles, Sornson's Drug, James Drug and the Goeders Co. were all making sev- ral improvements in their stores. No. 3 white corn was selling for 26Vic, No. 3 yellow for 26c. Hogs were $3.40 for light to mediums; leavies, $3.20 and packing sows, 2.70. Farmers were getting 12c per dozen for No. 1 eggs and 8c per dozen for No. 2. TWENTY YEARS AGO iFrank Henderson disposed of his nterests in the Long Brgs. and Henderson Grocery. He planned to retire in California, Colonel Spencer, the reliable weather prop net, was wearing his straw hat and warm weather fol- ov/ed soon after. The Upper Des Moines Republican published an editorial on Algona's need for a city hall. The :ouncil was then obliged to meet n the city -rest rooms and often obliged to discuss matters more or ess embarrassing because of the presence of strangers. The Opera House was showing 'Bella Donna" starring Pola Negri n her first American picture. Algona was the first town west of Chicago to show the picture, after his meal had settled, so to speak, and'Jim Murray sat be side Henry and Jim said my sing ing wasn't the kind that turhet anybody's stomach so long as didn't try to sing in Irish and Floyd Bilsborough and Loren Lar son and V. V. Naudain and Henrji Becker and Chan Dailey were al agreed that, maybe the program would have been a darned sigh better if I hadn't scraped some tunes out of the old fiddle, an< Ed Van Ness was there, .too, in his other suit which looks like new and I had a lot of fun eating ant visiting with the veterans. Jimmie Neville tells me that he and Mrs. Neville had several arguments about planting their garden rows, as she wanted them planted east and w,est and hi wanted 'em planted north anc south and so they were plantet east and west and that's how 'tis with our garden as the Mrs. thinks I don't ,know enough about gardening so she wants it done her way and she ties me up every evening so I won't be able to interfere with the gardening the wa: she wants it and Jimmie and '. have decided that we don't know much about growing cabbages and onions, so to speak. And I didn't plant our potatoes on Good Friday because or account of I didn't have the seec ready and then on (Saturday it rained and I couldn't plant in the mud and then came Easter Sunday and that settled that planting until Monday night but they're planted now and I hope to raise enough to sell a couple of loads after what's left when the potato bugs get through with 'em, because on account of the Mrs. is afraid of potato bugs and I don't love 'em any too well myself. But we should have a lot of potatoes, planted almost a peck and at the rate of 200 bushels to the acre we ought to be able to sell some. My neighbors all around me are ;oing in strong for potato plant- .ng and Martin Jenson says he treated the eyes of his potato seed so they'd have a good chance to see how to grow, and ain't that something? The women of the state of Jowa have turned into the government salvage agency 450,000 pairs of silk and Nylon hose and now maybe a lot of 'em will have to go bare legged for the duration and I never did like a bare leg as .veil as I would one well dressed 1 n nice hose but I'm going to over- ook that from now on because on ccount of it was swell of the girls o send in their silk and nylon so's hey could be made into sacks for xplosives and-those of the girls vho may think they carry an un- sual wart or mark on their bave egs can doll 'em up with paint. Jut I'll sure forget that I don't are so much for bares legs from ow on. More power to the girls. It was awful nice of Helen White to pick the Mrs. and me up morn- AuiiUu 1. mi viiiiiit LEDYARD PIONEER, DIED APRIL 29ffl Ledyafd •>•» August Theodore Knoner was bofn May 10, 1884, In Seelixson, Germany v He was married, to Lena Hagedofh In 1861 in Germany and the couple came to America iri 1892.

S. palace of duns in her car and then once in a while she rides her bicycle and there ain't room for the Mrs. and I both on the wheel and so we feel kinder bad but there would be room for me in the basket Helen has fastened over the front wheel but the Mrs. says I'd better walk because I might fall out on the pavement and I am told that Theo. Herbst, probably the speediest of all cyclists in Algona, is looking to race some of the cyclists and if I could borrow a wheel I'd beat the dickens out of him because on account of about a half century ago I also had a bicycle. I am about to check up on bicyclists in the city in order to flx it so they can bring other workers to work on the share a ride plan. And those who have wheels and don't have jobs to ride to are supposed to turn the bicycles over to those of us who have to walk to work. And ain't that something? I mowed the lawn Saturday night after supper and it was about the time when everybody was going up town and all kinds of people looked at me like I didn't have good sense bcause on account of I .had my overcoat on and was pushing the mower all over the place and I had thought to rake up the hay and maybe sell a couple of ton for feed but the Mrs. refused to do the raking and the only guy who seemed willing to help was Hugh Post and he drove by and asked me did I want to borrow a pair of mittens and overshoes and the city has got a street light post right in my front parking and I wish they'd come down and plant it some place else because on account of it's a' nuisance to mow around it and I'd have cut the darn thing down with the mower but it wasn't my mower as I had borrowed it of Bill Haggard and I didn't want to dull the machine but there wasn't a single neighbor came out and offered to help or even felt sorry for me, so to speak. And while the lawn isn't the biggest in town I know that T walked as far as from St. Joe and back pushing that darn lawn mower but the Mrs. said the exercise was good for me.
