SSOCIATION Second Place, General Excellence, Iowa Press, 1940 tendency now in this country, in seeking to overcome present shortage of workmen, to stretch hours beyond the limits that will produce maximum production. This also could undermine general health. "We think the 40-hour week is. too .short. The average person isn't happy to work so few hours a week, while 60 and 70-hour weeks will break the average man down if the work requires .great physical exertion. Certainly there is a happy medium, that may be close to 48 hours a week, tinder .some conditions this might be extended to 50, or possibly 54 hours, but there the maximum limit would seem to be reached.

W. Haggard Emmetsburg Editor Passes W. T. Branagan, who has been the editor and owner of the Emmetsburg Democrat since the death of his father in 1933, died at the Veteran's Hospital in Des Moines Sunday, after an illness of six months with neuritis. Editor Branagan was compelled to close down his paper when taken ill last December. He spent several months in a Chicago hospital and was recently moved to the Des Moines hospital. His paper, the Democrat, was rated one of the best democratic weeklies of Northern Iowa. His father was one of the leading democratic politicians of Iowa and stood high in the newspaper profession, and the son has been a worthy follower of the elder Branagan. The son served in World War One. The funeral was held on Wednesday and was largely attended, many newspaper men paying a last tribute. Mr. Willkie Against the Field If the old hard-shell republican leaders want to nominate Wendell Willkie all they have to do is to keep up their attempt to head him off for the nomination next year at the. republican national convention. One of the main things in giving Willkie his great popularity in 1940 was the fact that in spite of all the politicians could do, he won the nomination at Philadelphia to the chagrin of every single politician in the convention. The people of the country are sick of the dictation of the politicians. The other day down in Ohio Willkie told a press conference he 'had not as yet decided whether to enter in the Ohio primary campaign next spring. Ahd then added that he might get the 1944 presidential nomination "in spite of myself." And then said: "Ham Fish is against me, Gerald L. K. Smith is against me, and I understand that Landon is against me. If this keeps up I may be nominated in spite of myself." After the reporters had filed out, Willkie reopened the door and called after them. "Say, add Col. McCormick of the Chicago Tribune to that list." It is generally recognized that Willkie is the people's candidate and that he is opposed by most of the republican politicians. That of itself is a big asset. It is really Willkie against the field of republican candidates that have been mentioned, and we are betting on Willkie. If these old line republicans keep on, instead of reading Willkie out of the party they may read themselves out. * RAVIHOS A Littlt of flih .* A Llril. of Th«t Not Much of Anything Opinions of Other Editors The Roosevelt Reign Red Oak Express: Every straw in the wind I see where the PWB or the OPQ or some other group ha arranged It so we men can now have cuffs on our pants if we have enough goods left over when we buy a pair, which again means that those of US who' have shor legs can have cuffs but those who have long \egs will have to battle along as best they may Without cuffs and I'm sure glad I can have cuffs because on account of they're so handy to put your cigaret fishes n'when you're some place where folks don't have an ash tray handy and it might be a good idea for :hose long-legged birds who, can't lave cuffs to' borrow some goods >om the short-legged birds and ;hen they'll have a place to put :heir ashes, too. Of course the ongJlegged and cuffless guys can quit smoking in places where here ain't any ash trays and vhich would solve the cuff angle o far as they are concerned. I attended a session of the ra- ioning board Thursday night and here were 16 men present and I ounted the cuffs and 6 of 'em had cuffs on their pants and five of 'em were men who don't smoke so they don't need the cuffs and here I sat' with no dishpan to throw my cigaret ashes in and no cuffs on my pants and I had 'a notion to go home and 'get a saucer and Wen French finally opened a window so I could flip my ashes over on Dana Paxson's office windows and Dana didn't like that but the fact remains the PWB or OPQ crowd should furnish an ash tray to every fellow who can't have cuffs on his pants. —o— We've- g-ot two good banks in this town and I visit both of 'em regularly because on account of Branagan is survived by his wife, who is post- S< ves an indication that Mr. Roosevelt wants a mistress at Emmetsburg, and two sons in army * "~ * '" "~~ service.

Cash For Government Advertising io n iiiii ^^e nr . • ,. - o^h n™nt t congress providing for cash payment to newspapers by the government fourth term in the president's chair. The -very reasons that supported his demand for a third term are now being re-applied to logic for a fourth term. The same reasons can be trumped up to promote a fifth term; In fact this new deal logic can be projected indefinitely. We can admit that only one man in a nation of 132 million people is capable of directing our government. We can admit that he should hold office so long as he shall live and we can permit him to name his successor. »>If this new deal stratagem is allowed to cons aowe o con- lor the publication of war bond advertising. It tinue we can bid farewell to democratic govern-seems that the bill may not become a law as the ' *" ....... Newspapers themselves are divided as to the advisability of such a law. Some even think that rnent.

' '" "" """" "'* ---- """ ' If the government paid for what every merchant Jp&ys for in every town in the United States. Advertising is all that the newspapers have to sell and perhaps many of the papers are sadly in need of compensation for every inch they may run in their columns for the government but There is no other alternative. Either we are going to return to a limitation 'of presidential terms in office or we are headed for an endless succession of Roosevelts • or some other clique at the head of the government.

Indirectly" this ad- of the free advertising sent out by the government, a good share of it worthless stuff furnished by the war information office and thousands of inches of enlistment and other publicity as a patriotic duty. The government pays big salaries to thousands of publicity agents, but not one cent to the newspapers who furnish the real pub- mission comes to the surface in his refusal to delegate authority in civilian or military affairs. This ego' grows upon men who have power for too long a time. Hitler is cocksure that Germany cannot survive without his leadership. Mussolini believes that he is the only man who can lead the Italians. Stalin feels his bigness and licity. As far as paying for a legitimate service Hirohito knows that he is the divine leader of that is paid for by other enterprises the govern- J a P a n. atnent money could in no way influence the papers m their opinions than would the cash payments ior grocery ads influence them. It is extremely lunlikely that the bill will become a law, but it is silly to think that it would in any way bribe the papers. So far as this paper is concerned we are perfectly willing to contribute what free advertising we can, and still be able to meet the payroll Saturday nights. ^f Work and Play Should '" K; Be Equally Divided "* "* In these days of 36 and 40 hour weeks, ^orCKfl <&n the country by labor union leaders, it 'might be well to take note of the work weeks in other countries. A short hour week and too much drink and pleasure is often stated as the 'cause of the downfall of France in 1940. The 'oonquerors of France (Germany) had been pre- Ijawihg for war for some years, the workers put- Viffig in ten and twelve hours, a day. Ten and twelve hour work days were the rule in the United Slates not many years ago. We think that the eight-hour day is ideal in all respects. That gives the workers eight hours for pleasure and eight hours for sleep. The Estherville News has the situation sized up very sensibly in the following article: "A news dispatch reports that Germany has returned to a 48-hour week after attempting such long hours of labor that working men and women have broken under the strain. Back to an 8-hour day after trying 10, 12 and even 14-hour shifts, the Nazis ex- jiect to actually increase production. "France went to an extreme of short liours and when the war broke out we were fast following her example, in an effort to employ as many persons as possible to do less work than enough to keep everyone busy. Efficiency experts should take note of the German experiments, for there may be a The world is in the hands of egotists. The virus has spread. Every leader today is jealous of his prerogative power and he is constantly scheming to retain his leadership. Power breeds the demand for more power. That is a human trait. No matter what other issues are involved in the next general election, the one permanent issue will be the fourth term. Roosevelt's colleagues are planning his candidacy. The outcome will determine the future course of America. It will determine how much democracy our children shall have. The 18 year old youngsters who are now- going into military service were reared under the new deal influence. The last eight years of their thinking life, the age of impressions, have been Rooseveltian. Roosevelt is the only president they have known. Another four years will bring on another crop of youngsters who will be steeped and drilled in Roosevelt philosophies and they may be influenced by government technique, to believe that the philosophy of monarchy is good enough. The strife over the fourth term is important to all Americans who want to preserve the American traditions which have served us so well. I know some of the people who run 'em and in the Security Bank they have a nice sort of settee in the lobby and it's got a nice leather cushion and it's just the slickest place to lay down and take a nap on but Charley Murtagh says he won't furnish a pillow and he doesn't mind me taking a nap in there but my snoring's got to be attuned to the atmosphere and it must not be raspy and at the Iowa Savings they've got one of those things, too, and Ralph Miller says it'll cost me if I take a nap because on account of it's to sit on and not sleep on and it looks like I'll have to do my napping at Murtagh's. Ed Greinert, of Whittemore and A. D. Brogan, also of Whittemore, were in town Friday morning and they were parked right in front of the liquor store and that time of day it was all right because on account of the store wasn't, open but Ed says next time he'll park near a school house so I can't make any holler and Ed and A. D. both took a slant at my garden and they both gave me the horse laugh because on account of they said it'wasn't a garden any more but would be a good place for pheasant to hide in. Doggone! Dr. Andrews went -fishing: one day last week and there was a big open space along the shore of the lake where nobody was fishing and c6me to find out Fred Shilts had left some of, the fambus Shilts Flsn Bait ott' a stump over night there and it 'had so gained in strength that several fishermen had been suffocated and even the fish had moved upstream a ways and Fred tells me the bait is fine so long as it's fresh but the older it gets the stronger it gets and Fred Kent says Shilts has got' something there because on account of there's power in it and could be used to drive cars and tractors. And Ted Larson, also a good fisherman, says lie recommerids the Shilts bait for annihilating gophers and cut worms, just plant a bit of it in thejflelds. I met C. K. Kohlhaas the other day and he lives in the St. Joe neighborhood, and he is a brother, of Mayor Kohlhaas and I understand they went to school together and got pretty well acquainted', so to speak, but C. K. says he didn't have any hankering to be mayor of any town so he le "'rank have the job here and 'rank says there ain't any money n the job anyway but C. K. said »e'd move to town next spring ong enough to vote for me if : wanted to be mayor, \yhich reallj s something. And then John J Arend, from the St. Benedic neighborhood, showed up and he aid if I'd come over to St. Bene- lict he'd see to it that I was elected mayor of that town. Guess I'm getting popular when I'm offered the mayor job in St. Joe St. Benedict and Algona, all in the same day. teat's.out, iftou^h in-i $i$ra. afraff#M6 ~-** ----—"•• »•« cf~ , ••*•, •» ••m» and see if they grandma 1 * nlghtcaft" fts* oftJW to a wear.

His son, Edsel, had held the place for more than twenty years. He (Edsel) died recently and forced his father back into the 1 job. Henry Ford, through his auto factory, has brought pleasure and profit to more people of the world than any other man. He struggled up from obscurity and made his way because he had vision, tenacity, hpnesty, and a determination to win regardless of obstacles. Humboklt Republican: An exchange says that this paper is against the national administration. It is nearer the truth to say it is afraid of the administration, it believes that the present national administration could not exist without borrowed money and its aims are visionary although desirable. That is, they carry past the practical and possible. Also a prosperity based on borrowed money should arouse any man's fear. There's bound to be a crash. How To Stop Inflation Grinnell Herald-Register There's no getting away from it, we are worried about inflation. We are thinking about it, we are all talking about it, we are all agreeing that it musn't happen, we all know that if it "does happen it will be disastrous, and before our very eyes it is coming to pass. The trouble seems to be, as we look at it, that there are too many groups who want inflation prevention only as it applies to somebody else. When it steps on their own toes, that is something else again. Recent strikes in the rubber industry are a •case in point. Numerous strikes in other industries 'furnish corroborative evidence. This is the time 'when new contracts between employers and labor 'unions are being negotiated. Naturally the unions ask for wage increases. That is in the cards; they frisve been trained that way. The employer doesn't v/ith material concessions. Same is true with the case of the "United Mine Workers, which is still being adjudicated. In asking these wage increases, the unions point to the increase in the cost of living. They have something there. Costs have gone up due to the fumbling and vacillating methods of the O. P. A., which doesn't seem to know one day what it is going to do the next day. The farmers, for their part, do not see why all the gravy should go to Labor, and this gives you the Farm Bloc. However the farmers, largely, we believe, because the agricultural state voted against a third term and may be expected to vote against a fourth term are not receiving so much consideration in Washington. The farmers are too darned independent to suit the powers that be. However, the fact remains that we are never Recipes—nothing else this week because the Victory,Gardens mus be sending out such luxuries as early peas, string beans, lettuce onions and all the other delightful delicacies that may be pickec fresh each day. If I should get things mixed up a bit you will please overlook it because here in California we do not have the delight of that glorious change of seasons which other parts of this winderful country enjoy. Creamed Onions and String Beans 6 to 8 small cooked onions, 3 J /4 cups cooked string beans, 1 cup thick white sauce. Cook onions, and the tipped and snapped beans in small amounl of water, seasoning them to taste Drain the liquid from the cooked vegetables and combine it with the white sauce which has been prepared. From the Files faave a whole lot to say about it. His hands are, going to get real, honest to God inflation control t£ied under the Wagner act. The requests for high- »er wages go to the War Labor Board for adjudication and we have a long period of bickering vand compromising. In fact, they say that one of "the causes of the trouble with the rubber workers xvas that it took the War Labor Board a whole .•year to rule on an application for an 8 cent on Jiour increase. When the decision was finally •reached and the workers got only a 3 cent raise, the pot boiled over and an essential indus- 'try was tied up for precious days. Now the request of the railroad brotherhoods for a whop- wage increase is approaching the stage of ngs. No one knows how long it will take to that out, but it is just as certain as it is that God made little apples that the unions will emerge until we really do something and quit pussyfooting around. By "we", we refer to the authorities in Washington. And in the meantime the average guys, the guys working on frozen salaries, and there are some millions of them, are taking it on the chin and wondering how they are to pay their bills, meet their taxes, educate their children and still have something left for the purchase of war bonds. To us this seems to be the case in a nut shell. If we can have a workable and sensible control of prices we can solve the wage problem. If we can solve the wage problem the farm problem will solve itself. Are we getting it? We are not. Is there a Moses hiding anywhere in the bull- rushes? If there is, a job is waiting for him. 20 YEARS AGO Eugene Murtagh, senior at Grinnell, is a member of the Grinnell College golf team which will compete in the Missouri Valley Golf meet at Ames on Saturday, May 26.
