W. Haggard Shall We Invade? There has been much speculation about the real purpose of the visit of Winston Churchill to the United States and some of the gossip in Washington is to the effect that he came here to try and convince President Roosevelt that an invasion of Europe is not feasible this year. Of course nothing has been given out but the story goes that President Roosevelt, who is said to be more impetuous than Churchill, wants an immediate invasion of the continent. It is said that Churchill believes that an invasion this year would be too costly in men and equipment, even if successful. It is surmized by some that Germany will be subjected to a constant rain of bombs this summer in a "softening up" process in preparation for the actual invasion in 1941. The story also goes that the big fight will be in the Pac'ilic this summer where an attempt will be made to cut Japan off from her newly acquired islands which are so rich in rubber and oil. It may be that Roosevelt and Churchill are great statesmen and diplomats, but the decision in regard to invasion this summer should be lelt entirely to the army and naval experts. In our humble opinion an invasion on the French coast would be the bloodiest battle that the world has ever known, with a strong chance that it would not be successful at present. An invasion from the south would be more liable to be successful and less costly. However, we are content to leave the mutter entirely to the men who make the study of war their life work. K Presidential Possibilities The great game of presidential politics is gaining headway in spite of the war and the rapidly changing conditions which makes most anything predictable in regard to the probable candidates. National Republican Chairman Harrison Spangler of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is insisting*, that President Roosevelt immediately declare whether he is going to be a candidate for a fourth term. Of course this is manifestly ridiculous, as Mr. Roosevelt himself has not much idea of what conditions will be by this time next year. If the war is still undecided it may be that the democrats at least will still want .President Roosevelt to continue at the helm. On the face of it there are few outstanding men in the democratic party from which to choose a candidate. It will be remembered that Vice President Wallace was unable to carry his own state of Iowa in the 1940 election, and would certainly make a poor showing for president. Jim Farley would be a better bet and will likely be a candidate in opposition to Roosevelt should the latter be a candidate for another term. In the republican camp according to Gallup polls, Gov. Dewey of New York is in the lead for the presidential nomination, and Wendell Willkie is a close second. Then in order come 'Gen. Mac-Arthur, Gov. Bricker of Ohio and Gov. Stasscn of Minnesota. Only Willkie and Bricker have declared they will be candidates. Dewey has repeatedly said that he will serve out his four year term as Governor of New York, and SUissen has joined the navy for the duration of the war, after resigning as governor. The name f)f MacArthur, it is understood, is being 'used by opponents of Willkie in a desperate attempt to head him off. MacArthur has said repeatedly that he was only interested in winning the war and that he is a soldier and not a politician. If this writer were to venture a guess he would predict that the presidential candidates who will oppose each other on the firing line next year will be the same as in the 1940 election, Roosevelt and Willkie, and the progress of the war will decide the issue. Those "Fantastic" Wages The Upper Des Moines lias at various times referred to the "fantastic" wages being paid by many of the government defense plants, which has tended to drain off all or most of the wage workers from ordinary industrial and business institutions. The editor of the Walthill (Nebraska) citizen seems to take some exception' to statements made in regard to high wages in defense plants. The Nebraska editor writes, it would seem, of conditions in some plants with which he is familiar and besides compares the high cost of living to balance the high wage. If we understand his figures, a man working the usual 48 hours at the wage paid for common labor, a dollar an hour for 40 hours and time and a half for the last eight hours, would receive $52 per week. Seems big to us ordinary plugs earning about $35 as SKILLED workers. Of course the "fantastic" living costs eat up the extra pay. But the workers do not realize this until they have left their good jobs at home and it is perhaps impossible to return to the old job. This is the point that we have stressed, that while the highly paid defense job drew farmers and laborers from their home jobs where they were badly needed, in reality they stood to gain little or nothing in making the change. We know of one Algona man, a skilled auto mechanic, who left a $37.50 job here and is now getting approximately $90 a week in a defense plant near Omaha. However, we are glad to reproduce the very intelligent discussion of the wage matter by the Nebraska editor, which follows. * * * "Walthill, Nebr., May 18, 1943: Your note referring to the "$1.40 an hour birds" in defense work indicates that you have a complete lack of knowledge of what is going on. There is a bomb making plant just south of here employing several thousand persons. I am informed by persons who know that the average wage is $40.00 a week. The plant is at Mead. Perhaps fifty per cent of the workers live twenty-five miles or more away from it at Lincoln, Fremont and other points. Those who live nearby are paying one dollar a night to sleep and from sixty cents to a dollar for a meal. Be a good reporter and come on down . and I'll show it to yoti. There was an ex-". plosion in the plant a short time ago and several workers were killed, among them being three women. Perhaps you'd like some of their big wages. "My next door neighbor, Harry Metz, is a carpenter, who just returned from Hastings, Nebr., where he was employed for some time on a defense construction job. Harry quit because he said he could no longer afford to work for $1.35 an hour with time and one- half for overtime. So he/ is doing odd jobs about town here and with restrictions on construction work there are not so many. Harry tells me his expense at' Hastings W£S $35.00 a week before he had a cent for himself and that when for weather, lack of material or other conditions he got in only three days a week he could not cover his overhead. "We also have here several others who quit the west coast ship yards and other defense construction work and boy, believe me, they like the jack just as well as you or I. They quit for various reasons. Lack of suitable housing. Lack of sufficient ^eats on the coast. Inability to pay overhead if a few days work was lost, etc., etc. "Now about the miners. I grew up in the coal districts of Ohio and Pennsylvania. Madam Perkins report to the WLB disclosed the average pay of 450,000 miners in 1942 was $1,028 a year. Also that a large portion of them were forced through devious means to trade in stores owned by the mining companies and that thousands of them "never got out of hock" from one years end to the other. "The Pittsburg Coal (that's the Mellon family) and the United States Steel Company (that's Morgan's) control the Southern Operator's Association, which a year or so ago paid off former Senator Ed Burke of Nebraska for double crossing the people while he was in the senate by handing him the nice plum of president of their association at $25,000 a year. Burke knows nothing of the coal business, nothing of labor relations, but is credited with being one of the fastest political wire pullers extant. His employers being men of SOUND business judgment undoubtedly were assured they were getting what they paid for. "All this hullabaloo, about strikes, absenteeism, etc., etc., and about the big incomes of the farmers is for the purpose of keeping the public's eyes from being focused on th« fact that not one person who has robbed and cheated Uncle Sam (Anaconda Copper Co., with uninspected cable; General Electric with it's criminal tie-up with Germany's Farben- industri; United States Steel, that shipped bum plates to the Kaiser ship yards, and hundreds of others of which there is a clear and indisputable record made by the Truman and other investigating bodies). "Sorry, old-timer, I did not mean to take up so much of your time but for goodness sake try and realize that what the daily papers print may be true as to items, it is not true as to the overall picture and it is intentionally not true. And I am not talking through my hat. In my younger days I was employed on Cleveland daily papers when there were strikes on and I know positively a large part of the "news" put on the A&P wires at that time was faked." Opinions of Other Editors Tribute To Rationing Boards T. J. Farnan in Clear Lake Mirror—There's an old saying that people never thing of a public official unless they have something to complain about. That is probably truer in the case of our rationing boards than anything else. Few people thank them and yet they deserve every word of praise and appreciation that we have in the language, because they are spending hours each week taking care of a task that is disagreeable at best without any recompense whatsoever. We don't mean that people are continually complaining about our particular rationing boards, because they have an enviable record along that line, but we mean that one hears entirely too little in the way of appreciation. Right next door to the office, we are in a position to know how often they go up those stairs and how many times they interrupt their work at home to come down and go over applications and try to solve problems that often mean hurt feelings. One of the most admirable things about the rationing setup in Clear Lake is the willingness of c\eryonc to help. Many busy people have been asked to accept a position on one of these boards because of a particular knowledge or ability and, despite other demands on their time, there hasn't been one person who has refused. When you speak of the duration of the war, don't forget the outlook of the rationing board irembers. Their duties won't be over until the v;ar is over and their time won't be their own until the Germans and the Japs have been well taken care of. The members of the rationing boards know what the word "sacrifice" means, but none of us have every heard any of them ccmplain. * * # A Good Idea Emmetsburg Reporter: A public spirited citizen here, realizing the increasing menace of labor loaders, suggests: Permit labor to organize, but put a low and strict ceiling on membership dues. A good suggestion. This plan would allow working men to organize for their own protection, without being forced to pour the flow of wealth into the pockets of labor leaders that is giving them a dangerous amount of power. In other vords, the plan would tend to take the "racket" out of working men's unions. * * * Security or Freedom Northwood Anchor: "The phrase, 'social security for everyone,' is the new political bait being prepared to lure the voter. It is a fine-sounding catch phrase," points out Ruben Moos in his Nora Springs Advertiser. "There is something even greater than full-stomach social security, however," continues Mr. Moos. There is individual freedom—the right to do things for oneself. Political social security that make one a virtual ward of the state in return for a full stomach and a place to sleep, destroys freedom. Government can only "give" to the people what it first takes away from them. It can tax -ir confiscate savings and redistribute them under the guise of equalization of wealth. But a nation will starve if a majority of the people do not have the individual ambition and incentive to work, and save, and produce new wealth continuously to take care of themselves and that small percentage of unfortunate individuals who will always be wards of the state, and who should be cared for much better than they now are. Political planning of the lives of all the people in a nation can be carried too far, just as can parental planning of the lives of children—we face that danger in our country. The planners and spenders are beginning to outnumber the workers and the savers. There is an old saying that "self-respect doesn't thrive on charity." Most of us used to believe that but during the New Deal years the meaning of "charity" has greatly changed. Many persons who would indignantly refuse your kindly offer of a charitable tender of a few dollars, personally, claim as a right your taxpaying charitable gift forced from you through a public assembling of fynds. Self-respect, independence and gratitude have not yet been entirely wiped out but they are likely to be by the proposed increase of "social security." At a recent pension hearing before a state legislature one of the speakers seeking increased allowances cooly told the legislators: "I don't see why you should consider the taxpayers at all." By all means we should take care of the needy—generously—but taking care of ?V|!RY- BODY can result only in making a nation pi pitiful weaklings. RAVINGS ft ffltt A Llttl* oFThtj .. A LiHlt of That Not Much of Anything Now 1 that the dandelion season is at hand there is much activity in town as to the harvesting of the crop and high honors go to Bob James as being the best harvester in Algona. While he spends more time harvesting the flower he also has less than any other lawn in the city. Charlie Chubb does pretty well, too, but he offers to sell 'em by the dozen and will throw in a bushel With every dozen ordered and to those of you who make dandelion Wine, there's an opportunity. Raymond Irons said he started to "count the dandelions In his yard but quit when he got up to 250,000 and then he accused me of not being able to count to more than 70 for that's what I had in my lawn last week, but the rain and warm weather we've had since then has practically doubled the flower in my lawn and I expect I've got at least 130 and Joe_Bestenlehner says I'm nuts because on account of he tnows there are 170,000 in my lawn. And I don't know how to make dandelion wine. I'm told that dandelion wine is highly potent, that a couple of drinks of-xit and the imbiber can climb a telephone pole with one arm behind him which indicates there's strength in the flower. Then there is the color, a swell yellow, and which is what makes a yard look so nice when there are a lot of 'em. But the nicest thing about the dandelion is that those you grow blow into the neighbor's '> yard and his flowers blow seed into your yard, sort of a reciprocity agreement that flower displays, so to speak. If only the girls would be satisfied to wear dandelion corsages instead of orchids, what a lot of money we poor guys would have to buy groceries with. In that respect the dandelions would have its advantages. I want to be a blackout warden and I am asking .somebody to lend me a bicycle Curing the next blackout because on account of I could cover a lot of territory in my block and Les Kenyon is the warden in my home district and the other night when the blackout was on Les rode his bicycle and covered his territory in a hurry and had his block all blacked out in no time and I'd like that kind of a job because on account of the pay is good, so to speak. •I was in the AAA office the other day and it was right after a rain and that's when the farmers come in and take care of their AVNT UJCTS Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING . COOKING - SEWING VEGETABLES IN NEW WAY Last week we talked about a new food product and now let's ee if we can plan some new ways o use the old ones. Now-a-days feeling of virtue comes when we use every bit of the left-overs— and there really is a trick to it. Many times, to, we get into a rut about putting things together in he same old way. First of all, and this is impor- ant, plan as the left-overs go inlo he refrigerator, just how and ivhen you will use them. It is the accumulation that is discouraging. !"he family get wise to the fact hat "stuff is just put together," and that is the' last thing you .vant. Planning the use of each left- er as you put it away is the hing that saves time, worry and lerves when the next meal is to je prepared. Carrot Balls Dice left-over carrots and add ine bread crumbs, add an egg, >eaten slightly, and a little milk. Season with salt and pepper. Have enough crumbs so that you can orm the mixture into balls. Dip n flour, coat with beaten egg and lip in crumljs. Fry in a generous amount of fat. Savory Peas on Toast Drain liquid from peas and heat he peas with some butter in vhich a chopped onion has been auteed. Add a bit of green pep- aer, pimento or mushrooms, and a prinkling of salt and pepper. Parsley or chopped celery may te substituted for any of the other egetables named.) Add some grated cheese to the pea mixture nd serve on toast points. Cauliflower French Fried Break cauliflower into flower- From 'the Files TEN YEARS AGO Timothy P. Harrington, promi- >ent Algona attorney had passed way. He was a law partner of ... J. Dickinson, then United States enator. He was survived by his vife and two children. Magnus Lichter had been elect- d president of the varsity "I" lub at Iowa State College, where IB was a veterinarian student. Thirty-three Algona high school eniors were waiting to find if heir diplomas would be withheld s a result of their not returning o classes following the annual enior picnic. In the declamatory contest at St. ecelia Academy Donald Frankl, rene Capesius, Margaret Nelson, Catherine Deim, Gertrude Zender nd Loren Courtney were winners. Leaders in the popular baby ontest were Leona McMurray, latherine Gisch, Suzanne Free, .ucille Koppen and Jane Ward, 'he contest was to close June 3. Creamery butter was being ad- ertised at the groceries for 24c a pound. Gold Medal flour sold for 1.55 per fifty pound bag, best .rade canned tomatoes were four ans for 27c and coffee was lOc ier pound. Farmers were receiv- ng 30c for corn, $3.65 for hogs and c per dozen for eggs. TWENTY-FIVE YEAES AGO During World War I The study of German in Algona's chooi came to an abrupt end when a large number of students surned all the German language extbooks. A figure of the Kaiser was also hung in effigy. Pupils who iad been studying German were iven large and difficult assignments in Civics so that if any par- icipated in German to get out of tudy their mistake would be ealized. Arthur Moulds, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Moulds, was recovering in France from the effects of gas. The patriotic citizens of Germania were petitioning the government to change the name of their town. If the petition is granted Sauerkraut day would probably be done away with. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Geigle became the parents of their first child, a daughter. George Hackman, city marshalj, was the proudest man in town because he was a grandpa. dlMM At the Call Opera House a play entitled "One.. Girl's Experience" was being given. It was the true story of the dangers that beset poor girls wJjo work for their living. lets. Dry and fry in deep fat until light brown. If desired the flower- lets may be dipped in batter before frying. Left-Over Prunes Remove pits from the prunes and replace with nut meat halves.

Judge O. W. Stlllman has gone into ihe victory garden business in a Dig way and speaks of his garden as the south forty and I don't know whether It's forty feet, forty yards, forty rods, or what but he claims he's going to raise plenty of food .this season. It may be at that that his garden is bigger than "Duke; 1 Kinsfey's and that's going some. Of course those two have this advantage over me, they hold office and work in the court house and they can use the county's 'power, motorized and tractorized farming machinery while I just have two hoes with which to farm. Win. Boyken, banker, Tltonka, was the first Kossuth county man to visit Algona under a straw hat and it was Friday and it was a sailor hat he had on and even at that he can't join the navy because on account of he says he gets seasick, but he sure had nerve to come here wearing n straw ahd he said it was two years old but he looked like a million- dollars in it but that didn't mean the hat was worth that much or that he had that much. And here I thought maybe I'd be the first to wear a straw in Algona. Doggone! Hugh Walsh was down from Lone Rock Saturday and he didn't come to get shaved but he said I had wheels in my head and he could fix windmills and maybe he could do me some good and he wanted me to come out and help him plant soy beans and offered me plenty feeds and a pair of boots and just then Mrs. Walsh came into the bank where we were talking and I could tell right away she's the boss because on account of Hugh was a gentleman when he talked to her and he slowed down on conversation, so to speak. And now I find that State Representative T. C. Hutchison is also my neighbor, or am I his? At any rate he lives close enough so I could heave a brick from my front porch to his front porch but I ain't intending to do that, but maybe I can borrow his lawn mower or sell him some dandelions. Anyway the representative and I have iw<* thfiigS in. both ttfrferf in the legislator* ahd m cap weep an each other's shoui* def about the past, so to speak, ahd I like him too well to heave a brick at his house, anyway.

I repeat, they were Algona's most outstanding citizens and fishermen, so to speak.
