W. Haggard Doings of the Desk Boys Down at Washington The alphabetical jokes down at Washington after lying more or less dormant for a few weeks, are inclined to relent in the funny things they have been doing to us in making sure that we are being made to feel the "pinch oC war." Their latest pronouncement is that we will again be allowed to have cuffs on our trousers, that is, if we are not too tall. The terrible edict is still to remain in force with the six-footers, but the short fat boys may again appear with the silly cuffs and gloat over the rest of us. How childish and silly the whole matter is to people with ordinary common sense. For a time it was seriously argued as to whether our shirt-tails should not be shortened, but it was finally concluded that this might cause open rebellion and prove an invitation to the Japs and Germans to attack us from our unprotected rear, so it was reluctantly given up. Then there was the edict which insisted on our slicing our own bread, heavy penalties to be allotted to any baker who continued slicing his customers bread. Then, after we had all equipped ourselves with bread knives and prepared for the worst, this cruel and costly decree was withdrawn. It may be that the Washington bureau boys feel that in order to earn their fat salaries they must make a show of doing something and such things as cuffs on pants and bread knives was about all they could think of as their contribution to the war effort. Then there was the proposed order to the farmers to remove the shoes from their horses lit night to save wear and rest the horses feet. This was finally abandoned by the bureau chiefs after long discussion, but it may yet be hanging over our heads. But the latest thing to make trouble has been the wearing of slacks by the girl workers in the Ford plants. After all the crusade by DED and other purists against slacks, it seems that the STord plants insists on the girl workers wearing Slacks. But the other day the girls came to their work wearing dresses, which with the bare leg Graze on, certainly gives them a better chance to exhibit their charms than do slacks. Of course as a matter of fact the slacks have caused the concealment of many a beautiful leg and the giris finally realized that in justice to themselves and their future they should be allowed to show themselves to the best advantage. But after a day in Skirts, the Ford people made the girls understand that if they wanted to continue in Ford employ for safety's sake they must go back to the detested slacks, and so they were forced to again don the nasty old slacks. Of course it is more convenient and safer to wear pants around machinery than skirts. .. •„ • But laying joking aside, it sounds silly to be jangling over so 'many trifling and unimportant Koatters when the country is straining every effort hc a fight for our very existence. It is possible "tbifi- we are mistaken but we have an idea that if aboift£? hundred and fifty of those new deal bureaus 'dm-r^a at Washington were entirely eliminated and the many thousand desk patriots put • on the fighting line we might be getting some Strikers Should Be Drafted It has been frequently suggested that the coal miners and others who strike during war times, Should immediately be drafted into the army and made to work at the same pay that the soldiers get. Those not fit for military duty could go on \vith their work at home under military supervision. John L. Lewis could serve as an observation balloon if his mouth could be kept shut to prevent the escape of gas. Mr. Pitman of the INorthwood Anchor last week printed the following clipping from an unknown source: "As I said before, this is a total war. My .solution of the production problem would be to enlist miners or any other kind of necessary war workers who are holding up the patriotic program. Then, after they have been inducted into service, I would march them back into the mines or industrial plants as privates, noncoms and lieutenants with good crisp colonels over them who would see that the workers darned well do the job. '•That would be putting them on the same t>asis as the armed forces and neither labor Tior capital should expect a better break than the armed forces get. THEY give their lives— •we can at least lend our efforts without persistently fighting our own people instead of the enemy." Those Fantastic Wages Again A fellow by the name of John Nordstrom, formerly hailing from Algona, who is now working in a Portland, Oregon, shipyard as an un^ skilled laborer, is getting a wage of $1.35 per hour, which gives him $54.00 for a forty hour week. If he works the.regular 48 hour week like the rest of us do, it gives him the tidy sum of $70 per week. Not bad for unskilled labor. John seems to take offense when anyone suggests that lie is getting good wages, and wants to call names. He is a man of about 65 but still able to do a full days work. He should be proud of his ability to receive such a weekly wage. Here is a line recently received from him: "Portland, Oregon, June 7—I am enclosing an article which you can read. There is a ship launched every day at 12:30 to beat the damnable Hun and Jap in the Portland ship yards. How many ships have you or your class slid down the ways? When you in your last article state that any unskilled worker in the defense plants was getting as high as $75 per week, why don't you print a few items of Hague, Nash-Kelly, Pendergast, Duffy, and a thousand other Irish Catholic racketeers? Are they building ships?—Very truly yours, John C. Nordstrom, Portland, Oregon." Not quite coherent, but we judge that John is placing us with the big racketeers. Ouch, John. We were in hopes that you had not penetrated our disguise. RAVINGS A Littlt of TMi « A Littlt of That Not Mttdh <A Anything Opinions of Other Editors Jaqua's Sensible Views Clarion Monitor: The Monitor is in favor of everything that is necessary to insure a lasting world peace and world welfare after this war is won, of beneficial trade relations, of a beneficial tariff or the lack of it as our best interests disclose, reciprocity where it is beneficial to all, and all the rest of the things that will contribute to the betterment of humanity. The only argument is concerning the methods of obtaining these ends. Some of us have extreme beliefs either sentimentally or from lack of vision. We are known as extremists and reactionaries. The Moni- tot hopes to keep between the extremes and be practical so far as possible, going as far toward the better things internationally as can be done with national safety and world permanence. It has no thought of keeping the efforts of the people below their full strength to give and help. However, it does believe that there is an end to national giving just as there is to individual giving. That is the thought it wishes to present. More, the Monitor believes that the people as a whole will react as it predicts. Placing too large a burden on the shoulders of pur citizens will result in a total repudiation of just obligations. Therefore it believes that the part of wisdom is to go only as far as possible or as discretion dictates. We should help. We all acknowledge that. We want to help. But also we believe we are entitled to a fair amount of the good things we produce. So far as the Monitor can do, there will be no regimentation under the guise of an international expediency — that is, no permanent regimentation after the war is won. Of course the bans of war can not all be loosened at once. But when peace is declared the war restrictions should begin to loosen. President Roosevelt has told the people that when peace is declared the wartime powers that he has will be automatically released. * * • "~ " Help Wanted ~~ -"^V «'•«*,. ($12 Ad This Week in Publisher's Auxiliary, Newspaper Trade Paper): Intertype Operator Wanted — No $1.50 an hour, no heaven. We're just a weekly newspaper, though judged nation's best from production angle once. This job is actually worth about 80c an hour, with overtime at time and a half, enough to make it $40 a week and better. We might add; we heard there was a war. But we've seen operators not worth 40c even today. Unorganized. You can smoke but not chew. Drink while off, or swear, but be there pitching when we need it. Our past operators have been good or we made them good. One now Major U. S. A. Last one unfroze himself for highly personal reasons. You have to set italics and small caps. You'll be two thirds on job and add stuff. Model C electric pot, 4 split. Have an X with a half time barber setting straight matter. Nice old building and we guarantee nothing except we mean right and have the softest toilet tissue in town. You can't eat that. Housing is terrible, unless you are Unmarried or can get by temporarily with a 2-3 room apartment. Foreman is swell outside of fishing. Office is full of virgins. Boss is crazy — crazy to run a good newspaper and do good printing and not get rich. Job is permanent enough. You've got to get along and carry your load. Oh, the machine. Well, it works right, or you don't and the foreman and I and the Intertype can't make it. work. We say it does. No goose grease with you please and we won't say the chair is the right height. And you can't sing hymns or whistle. Age? Who cares! Time? Now! Leader-News, Waupun, Wis. * * * The Newspapers Help Estherville News: The secretary of the treasury has announced that newspapers published a total of nearly 74,000 Second War Loan ads total- ling 73 million lines, valued at four and a half million dollars. The advertising cost the government nothing. In addition to this display advertising, and the treasury's figure is conservative because it did not have access to all of the facts, there were millions of dollars worth of publicity donated in the news columns. Newspapers came through as never before. Thus far the government has taken the position that it should not pay for any of its advertising, but urges newspapers to solicit privaie firms for space to advertise bonds and stamps. That is a job which is distasteful to most newspaper men. So firm has been the insistence, however, that almost all newspapers have relaxed their rules against special pages and are soliciting treasury advertising, to be paid for by individuals and firms. When the total amount of all money spent on bond advertising, including that donated by the newspapers in display and publicity space and that paid for by individuals and firms, the donation to the government reaches staggering figures. It may represent one of the biggest of all war gifts. Mine Union Record Bloody Pitman in Northwood Anchor Can the union miners be made responsible to State or Federal law or are they to be allowed to go still further in defiance of the government? They have run things with a pretty high hand for many years. There was a time when they were under better legal control. It is not to be expected that many citizens •who have been born since the early 1900's have Vept in touch with the history of the United Mine Workers. There was a time when the organization's leader, John Mitchell, who was also vice president of the American Federation of Labor, bandied the matters in conservative fashion. He was far from the John L. Lewis type and fn those days his union accepted the existing industrial system. The employer was regarded as {Something in the nature of a partner. It was thought possible to gain through conference and presentation of facts more beneficial results than through force. Strikes were called as a last argu- wient and, when possible, avoided. Just how Mitchell held the miners down has »ever been 'explained. It is possible that he had "his own interests at heart more than he had theirs. At any rate, when he died, he left a fortune, it is said, of a quarter of a million dollars inpacking house and railroad stocks and bonds, Vtotes bank deposits, and real estate. He was, too, *'comparatively :young man^when he died. That many of his followers disapproved of his peace ideas and "no strike" tactics is well known. Later the program of the miners was something different. Bill Haywood of the Western Federation of Miners, was a believer in violence —gun powder, dynamite, murder of opponents. Clarence Darrow, the Chicago criminal lawyer, is credited with saving him and others from the gallows after the murder of Governor Stuenen- berg of Idaho. Haywood later fled to Russia where he died. . Whether the operators or the miners have been to blame, or both, the history of mining during the last thirty-five or forty years has been a bloody one. Violence of the most pronounced type, assassination, resistance to the police, the state militias and Federal troops—the inhuman use of explosives, the actual capturing of mines and withholding them from the owners, is part of the record. Miners' plug-uglies have murdered operators, superators, so-called "scabs" as well as friends of Till three. On the other hand operators have mowed down miners and their wives and children with machine guns in the hands of hired strike breakers or soldiers. Will it come to that again or must it be avoided by giving this warring organization everything it asks for? The public's rights surely come somewhere in between. Took lt| the band concert Iftsi Thursday night and the Municipa band was playing on the lawn next to the city hall and the boys were doing a good Job of it bul I like it better where the band is set up so so's folks can see the tooters and I discovered there are some bald headed fiddlers in the band and so I feel-more like I could fiddle with "em, too, because on account of I'm .bald headed, too, and John Monson was there and he's from Marshalltown and I've known him for many years and he's the building superintendent out at the hemp plant and he thought that maybe the band was out to welcome him to Algona and which they weren't but I welcomed John and he's a Norwegian and which I don't hold against him because on account of that's close to being a Dane and John knows his building and he'll be a good addition to Algona citizenship while he's here and maybe I can get the band out for him some other time. And now since the bowling alley has closed for the summer Dr. R. J. Thissen is confining his muscle exercise to gardening instead of rolling the ball at the pins and I claim that bowling is better exercise than gardening because on account of it's no fun to stand up and hack away at weeds for hours and that's hard on your back, so Doc may think he's substituting gardening for bowling to exercise his muscles, but he ain't exercising all of the muscles at that. I know, because on account tried that once. of I The local unit of the Legion Auxiliary signed up a lot of folks who are going to give a pint of blood for civilian and military hospital use and it was sure a fine gesture on the part of the folks who indicated they would be blood donors. If I hadn't been such an old coot I'd have donated a pint, too, because on account of I've got plenty blood and the count is healthy and normal, but I got to thinking it over and suppose some soldier was treated with plasma from my blood he might get right up out of the hospital bed and go to fiddling or he might go to writing a column or he might become a jitterbugger, or he might go to singing Dane and bragging or he might get bald-headed and I wouldn't wish that on any soldier, so I didn't let 'em puncture my veins because on account of I'm for the soldiers and don't want to bring 'em down to the mental level I enjoy (?). On June 10, 1942, Raymond Thilges, Riverdale township, came in here and planked down the mazuma for a year's subscription and then on June 10, 1943, just, a year later even to the hour Ray mond came in again and blanket down some more mazuma for an other year's reading and he sale next year at 2 bells, June 10, 1944 he'd be in again with some mor. mazuma and keep on reading thi sheet. Speaking of punctuality that guy has sure got a lot of i and so have I and that's what makes Raymond and me regular guys, so to speak. He's punctua about his subscription and I'm punctual about my daily nap. And early Saturday morning I met Harry Bode, Plum Creek, on the main drag and I asked him had he been in town all night anc he said he hadn't but he came in early to see how Algona acted prior to 8 a. m. and besides tha he'd heard so much about the city tobter getting people out of bee in here at 7 bells and he wantec to hear the tooter and besides that when the tooter tooted here at 7. he'd already done a couple 01 hours work along with the rest pi the farmers and I felt so sort bi red in the face because here 1 thought 7 bells was early anc Harry needed a shave and he said he might have some barber here yank the whiskers off his face be!ore he went back home to do another day's work before supper. Because It looked like rain and did sort of mist a drop or two Ray -adendorff, Ted Larson, Walt Hall and Jim White went'fishing Saturday afternoon and they agree that fish bite better when the atmosphere is damp indicating that fish are sorter inclined to be wet, so to speak, and Clarence Pollard wanted to go fishing one day but the weather didn't look rainy enough so he had George Boswell pour a little water on the car and then he decided it was going to rain and so he and George went fishing—and they caught their limit, and Roy Christensen carries a sprinkler in his car and come the day he wants to go fishing but the weather isn't rainy enough to give a good excuse Roy has one of the boys sprinkle the car a bit so it looks like rain and then he goes fishing. Boy, boy, what a lot I'm missing because on account of I don't know how to fish. And here I am a grandpa again because on account of Sunday Donna Marie, daughter of Cpl. and Mrs. Donald M. Reese, arrived and while she hasn't spoken to me yet, or even asked for the car, nor indicated whether she was going to join the Waacs or Waves or Spars, seeming interested mainly in what the new world had to offer her to eat, she's a pretty good looking young lady and no ,doubt she'll be a, d*»dlt M fief the nttn? other WanlTChlldfen .. mine are. Indicating what an old #(Bt 1 really" am WOt *tt afiftf «< grandchildren td my. credit already, BO to speak, but just 'So Dbnna Marie grows Up to be a$ nice a lady as her mother'Is I'll be satisfied. And that's that. 0. O. Bailey, Seneca merchant, was In town one day last .Week and 1 am sure he left his No. 17 stamp here with somebody because on account of the shoes he had on were so loud in their new brilliancy I could hear him corning down the street and not only that, but C. O, .had his Sunday duds on and you'd think he was a millionaire a"nd which he says he ain't. But he's an honest guy, because on account of more than a year ago I bet him two bits on a football game and he lost and he toted the two bits down here arid paid me and maybe I should tiave bought him a cigar, - but I had one of my tightwad moments and I just let him light the one he was chewing on, so to speak. A sign, well painted, the words all spelled correctly, is planted in the parking of the Walter L. Jensen residence, 504 E. McGregor, and it reads: GILMORE AND JENSEN Truck Gardeners Phone 713 or 235 We Deliver ind so the new firm has been busy the past week answering the telephone and taking orders but al- yays with "We don't deliver" and I am confused because on account of when I called up and asked for a pound of beans the voice" answered with "We don't deliver and the beans aren't harvested yet, Harold and Walter have been oo busy and we can't find the >eans for weeds. Come after your pound July 12th. We guarantee quality." And then when I asked Harold and Walter how come the ign, they both averred that they didn't put it there, but they had .uspicions and one of these days hey were going to make a statement for the press.

Another novel idea springs up for the present generation. Asa Arent, who was a student at Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio, in 1933 paddled down the Ohio River and up the Mississippi and Des Moines rivers to visit his larriily in Humboldt. The canoe was his own handiwork. He is the grandson of Mrs. C. E. Heise of Algona. Fishing must not have been so Uood then, or maybe it was just .he fishermen. Anyway, L. E. Hovey, Andy Anderson, Mart Weaver, Phil Hemphill and (Admiral) H. W. Miller ate nothing :>ut hamburgers on their fishing expedition to Lake Koronis in Minnesota. H. W. Miller gained ;he title of Admiral when lie donned the head dress of a deep- sea sailor before embarking in an eight foot skow to search for fish. Those old-time movie stars are still going strong even though Ann Harding, Robert Montgomery and Myrna Loy played the leads in When Ladies Meet." It seems as though bicycling for the ladies was also a fad in those days. Secret practice sessions in bicycling were taking place about dusk in the vicinity of the Kossuth fair grounds. Mrs. Fred Kent, Mrs. Ralph Miller, Mrs. Harold Gilmore and Mrs. Floyd Saunders adopted the fad, and it looks like they are at it again. TWENTY YEARS AGO Al Falkenhainer of Algona had been elected from this district as a member of the first Iowa State Council o.f the American Red Cross at the state convention in Des Moines. J. W. Speraw had captured seven wolves on the Jentz farm near Fenton. The wolves were sent to Tennessee where they hold wolf hunts. A lew of the present day "wolves" could stand to be caught, too. Bull snakes caused quite a bit of excitement in the old days. Mrs. Al Falkenhainer received quite a shock while picking strawberries when a bull snake arrived on the scene and demanded the right-of-way. Mrs. Falkenhainer wasn't in the mood to argue with the three-footer, so she secured help and the snake was speedily dispatched. Mr. and Mrs. G. R. Baker and daughter, Charlotte, had gone on an automobile trip to the West coast. This was probably quite an expedition in its day, and is va- doubtedly again today with all the gas rationing. some different combinations and variations; Beets With Orange 2% cups sliced raw beets, 1 cup orange juice, 1 tablespoon butter, I teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon grated orange peel.
