There is one thing we might suggest to Gov. John Bricker of Ohio, and that is he has not circulated his picture freely enough among the fair sex. John is a pretty good looker himself and his picture would certainly lose him no votes. Of course the less Tom Dewey's picture is shown the better it will be for him so far as the ladies are concerned. As to "Hick," the ladies like him homely or Handsome, and he might yet come down the home stretch as a "dark horse." SUBSCRIPTION RATES IN KOSSUTH CO.

W. Haggard Dies Takes A Crack At the Administration John L. Is Not Popular The popularity of the union labor Czar, John L. Lewis, was tested in a recent survey made nationally by the Gallup poll leader. The poll showed that the big paunched labor leader was not much more popular than Hitler, the fiendish maniac, who aspires to conquer the world and make all peoples slaves to the German empire. The question asked was: "What is your opinion of John L. Lewis?" Only nine percent had favorable opinions of John, and the overwhelming majority of 87 percent had a distinctly unfavorable opinion. A number of those with unfavorable opinions explained that their animosity was caused by his stand in causing the coal miners to strike when the life of the nation was imperilled by his action. John is not only unpopular with patriotic citizens but it has been suggested by many that he should be tried for treason in time of war. Chairman Martin Dies of the committee to investigate persons and societies antagonistic to this country has let loose a blast against the present administration that is notable, coming from the mouth of a democrat. Chairman Dies has been busy for several years in ferreting out communists ;md pro-nazis and it is claimed by many that ho has done good work. He is a democrat from the state of Texas. Roosevelt calls him a "reactionary" democrat and he is not popular at the White House. Mr. Dies made a speech at an Elks convention at Fairtield, Iowa, last week in which h-j said that the present democratic administration had left no stone unturned in trying to drive him from his work. Dies and Vice President Wallace have been feuding for some time and he took the occasion to slam Wallace in his home state. He said that he did not share in the theory of government proclaimed by Wallace that we should give everybody a quart of milk a day. He stated that "all this tommyrot coming out of Washington, that the government can give everybody something lor nothing, never has worked and it never will. When you strive to place everybody in idleness, the time comes when the plan crushes everybody." Dies criticized Secretary Ickes, and said that some of the 48 bureaucrats stricken from the payroll recently were employed by Ickes. "Many of these bureaucrats," Dies said, "are crackpot-;. You would put them in the insane asylum; in "Washington they get lucrative jobs. Many of them in addition to being crackpots, are socialists, communists and persons who do not believe in America." He said that the administration stood for them, and its smart young boys with no background other than a degree from some college believe what made this country great is all wrong and that we are a bunch of saps to have believed in it. Dies claimed that of many hundred of reds, pro-Germans and other un-Americans his committee has exposed, few if any have been prosecuted by the government. Dies, while a democrat, is certainly no friend of the administration which \vould fire him in a minute if possible. However, he is under the direct control of congress. Opinions of Other Editors Willkie Wins With Women That handsome Wendell Willkie is the predominant leader in the race for the republican nomination Cor president next year among the women of Iowa was shown last week in a voto by the Iowa republican women at their state convention. Willkie received twenty-six votes, and his nearest competitor was Tom Dewey with a paltry eleven votes. Gov. Hickenlooper was given two votes and Gov. John Bricker of Ohio trailed xvith only one vote. The ladies certainly showed 'that they were not isolationists, and we think the 'vote was a fair showing of the sentiment of Iowa -republican voters, women as well as men. Only Lewis To Be Feared As Dictator Decorah Journal: If John L. Lewis ever becomes president of A. F. of L., wljich his proposed return to the fold on which he walked out eight years ago to split labor unity wide open, America can depend on it that he will plan to set himself up as the dictator of American Labor. If A. F. of L. unions are so anxious to accept a man who is considered a traitor by soldiers at the war fronts, they can expect their unions to become political pawns of Jphn L. Lewis, who will try to use the union labor vote to build up a dictatorship which we fear would be as ruthless as that of the Nazi. We cannot believe that John L. Lewis lias any interests except selfish. If Congress has any stamina, it will pass a law to: 1—forbid strikes in wartime without a long waiting or cooling-off period; 2—require absolutely that unions be required to make as complete a report of their finances as do banks, and, ;i—reserve only for the Federal government the right of the check-off system against wages, as such a system is vicious in the hands of individuals and forces payment of union dues by workers who oppose unions. * + * Who's The Boss Estherville News: Mr. Roosevelt lifted an eyebrow when he learned that John L. Lewis imposed a fine of five dollars on miners who obeyed the President's command to return to work, before Mr. Lewis approved resumption of work under a 15-day truce. If it is true that a labor leader has fined the men of his organization for accepting the orders of the government instead of himself then there ought to be more than eyebrow lifting. Maybe it's time to settle the matter of who's the chief executive of the country. * * * Decoration for John L. Lewis Grinnell Herald: Over in Germany they have a custom of awarding an iron cross for valor. We suggest that the Nazis originate a new decoration, the cross of the double cross for John L. Lewis and confer it upon him in recognition of his persistent efforts to sabotage his country's war activities. We read that the Nazis are watching the coal situation in this country with great interest. Why wouldn't they? The whole mess is a juicy tidbit for Herr Goebels and his propaganda machine. * * V Anti-Strike Bill Popular Ringsted Dispatch: A recent Gallup poll indicates that the Conally-Smith anti-strike bill is overwhelmingly approved by the American people. More than 80 per cent of those polled wanted strikes abolished for the duration. Even union l?bor members voted for no strikes in war industries by more than 70 per cent. Out here in the farming country, practically nobody wants anybody to strike at any time. If the administration i~: too lax or powerless it is high time congress put a stop to unions as represented by John Lewis iind Company. Signs of Peace and you'll want to be there! What if Peace brings new cars promptly or not? You'll be yearning to get away from headlines—rations—hours of volunteer war work... to get around again with your weary, happy soldier boy—home at last. And with driving restricted now, your car should have plenty of miles left, just BO you're not tossing them away these 'days, by half-ruining your engine with acid. That's no "new scare." You never yet stopped any auto engine without acid products of combustion trapped inside. But formerly, the frequent fast driving that fully heated the engine kept expelling acid. So the hazard was mild compared to what it is today, when acid works while your rationed engine rests. One great recognized precaution against this is to OIL-PLATS your engine by changing to Conoco N«« motor oil. Its special • f added synthetic acts "magnet-like"—to attach OIL-PLATING direct to precious inner parts. Much like body parts plated against» atmospheric corrosion, the cylinders, rings, bearings and other parts now hard to replace are OIL-PLATED against internal acid corrosion. The close-surfaced OIL-PLATING that combats acid while the car stands, will help your essential transportation today. And may a happier tomorrow see you right off quick on your well-earned Victory tour! Change to Conoco N«» oil now. Continental Oil Company CONOCO RAVINCS kV A Llttlt of Thl» « A Lmlt of Th«t Not Much of Anything MOTOR OIL Last Thursday noon 1 Was the guest of Roy Hutzell at the Ki wanis feed and I claim .it isn't often the Kiwanis may have more distinguished guests than I was and I thought 1 got there after they had done their warbling and 1 was happy about that because on account of some of 'em can't sing half as good as John Uhlenhake of Whittemore and he can't sing for sour apples and then all at once Frank Zender (he's the big shot) says "Let's sing" and Dr. Andrews got up and he waved a book and the musical Klwanians tollowed the' waves and rest of em hummed, sort of, and everybody was happy and Rev. Richardson he played the piano for em and he's no slouch at that, either, but while he's accompanying he isn't tortured with the discords of some of the singers and ihey sure had a fine feed and a ?ood program and they booed •*alph Miller and me something awful with Ralph having a bit the edge over me. —o— That comes of being an eater in another service club and Chas. LaBarre felt sorry for me and offered me a Chesterfield and which was nice of him but I smoke cigarettes and Dick Norton offered me a cigar and they're too much for an old guy to lug around and so I saved him a nickle and ! listened to the singing and non- singing and I discovered that Russ look and Bill Vigars and Clark icuffham were the best warblers it the east table and Joe Bloom ind Alf Kresensky and Ab Long expanded the most promising ung power at the west table with Otto Laing and Don Hutchison close seconds and at the .head able Chas. Murtagh trilled and /ibrated nicely but he's a bettoi vhistler than singer and they have •m awful time keeping him from vhistling and Dr. Olson has a nice oice and should sing with bet- er singers 'n in the Kiwanis and " Greenberg and Duane Dewel vent through the motions but 1 :ouldn't catch the mellifluous con- ent of their larynxes. —o— I was really right amongst the jig birds of Algona during that eed, sat at the head table, and Roy Hutzell paid for my feed, and associated with Dr. Wallace, )ana Paxson, Chas. Murtagh, Leser Riter, Frank Zender, Bob McConnell and Wen' French, and 1 vas introduced and all those guys ecognized my mug and their booes were inspired to a point ot leafening resounding rafters and I was glad because on account of it's when they're mad at you thdt they don't boo, so to speak, and Otto Laing said there are sure a lot of good voices here (meaning boo voices, not singing voices) and I agreed with him and then Roy Hutzell introduced another Dane, Henning Larson of Des Moines and he spoke about price and rationing and he knows his onions and 'his talk went over fine and I was glad I came and was a Dane and one of these days maybe I'll sign up with the Kiwanis because on account of they're a lot of fine guys, those boys. Dr. Amunson has hunted the town over for Ebelskyver seeds because on account of he wanted to plant some in his garden and so he asked me where did I get my ebelskyver seed and I told him they didn't grow in the ground but that they were a sort From the Files TEN YEARS AGO E. W. Lusby had been offered $117,500 by "Pal" in a Spanish )rison. This sum was offered to VIr. Lusby if he could pay $4,000 'or trial expenses to get this un- cnown person out of prison. Dorothy Christensen had boon chosen as the 4-H club queen of Kossuth County. Lark Reynolds of Swea City reported one hundred Buff Rock chickens missing from his farm. With the need for more chickens tnd eggs there might be quite a sit more thieving now than there was then. But our police force .ioesn't allow such things to be mlled off anyway. Ten years ago the States were debating whether they should he dry states or wet states. Iowa became the fourteenth state to vote or repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment. This was the year that the Alona Building & Loan Association lad been admitted to full membership in the Federal Home Loan 3ank of Des Moines under the management of C. R. LaBarre, who had become secretary and manager. Miss Jean Barnes had stopped n Algona to re-shoe her horse, which she was riding from Deer "dge, Montana, to Chicago, Illinois. An expedition such as that might be tried today by some des- aerate radical who hasn't any gas to go traveling. Two unusual sights had been a team of goats hauling a small wagon load of wood at the Ingersoll home and team of Shetland ponies plowing potatoes by pulling a large cultivator in a garden north of the Wellendorf truck gardens. The goats and ponies would undoubtedly be welcomed on some of these victory gardens that the business men are "trying" to keep weeded. of a first cousin to a pancake tine he thought I should fix it so they could be grown in the garden ,atid lots more people should know what they were. There's an Idea, maybe I'll do that very thing. I've found another bass singftf almost' as good as I arri and it's Fred Geigel of out Irvlngton way and I haven't ever heard him sing but he's got me cheated because on account of he sings in a choir and I'm not gbod enough for that, singingically, spiritually, financially, but one of these days maybe Fred and I'll sing a duet at some high class function where good bass singing will be understood. And I met Claus Wibbcn from up Titonka way the other day and it's a cinch he's not a Dane like I am but he said he'd like to hear me sing a Dane song once and then he'd know whether niv singing amounts to anything and so one of these fine days when I can arrange for an extra gallon of gas I'm going to drive up there and I'll sing a number for Claus and I know he's going to like it because on account of my Dane singing is good. Ewold Rusch was over from Whittemore the other day and ho still has the nicest half pint size mustache and he keeps it groomed so nice and now "Speed" Hahn has also gone to growing a mustache and he's doing a good job of it and "Spec" Zumach, too, has a fine hirsute adornment and the Whittemore boys are insisting that the Algona mustache growers get busy and try to give 'em some competition and it looks like Whittemore is going to out-mustache Algona without any trouble, so to speak. I don't mind telling you my garden looks like (deleted) and it's because on account of the rain. Every time I want to pull weeds it rains and when I'm working and can't pull weeds then the weather is nice and I've pleaded and begged and argued with the Mrs. wanting her to hold an umbrella while I do the weeding bih she's opposed to it and so now the hay is getting the best of the vegetables, so to speak. I can only hope I can sell enough hay off the patch so's I can get back the money I paid for seed, I hope. —o— The Anti-Necktie Wearer's Club was started last Thursday morn- in the post office when T. H. Chrischilles jumped all over me for not having my neck tied up in a necktie and even hinting that maybe he'd take on going without a necktie and so that gave me an idea and the first signer in the Anti-Necktie Wearer's Club was L. F. Rice and he proudly proclaimed that he'd not been on speaking terms with a necktie for years, so he's president, and I am secretary because on account of I have a typewriter and Henry Eischeid is treasurer. The board of directors will be Horace Clapsaddle, Jewel Patterson and Frank Ostrum. The laws of the Club provide that you don't have to wear necktie from June 1 till October 1, except when you go to church, if you go to church. And not having to buy neckties is an economic gesture. We hope to sign up Ed Hough, Joe Harig, Clarence Morrell, Bill Haggard, Dana Paxson, W. C. Dewel, Joe Lowe, Brail Wright and D. D. Monlux. Mayor Kohlhaas says it seems kind of foolish to monkey with a :ie every day, put it on in the morning and then have to take it off at night. And the color of some of 'em get me down, and Dutch Swanson and Fritz Pierce ha ye s;ot the right idea, they wear black ones, nothing loud or screaming about 'em. And I think they have a stretch of rubber in 'em which s sensible. Some men don't know TWENTY YEARS AGO Jackie Coogan had starred in the movie, "Oliver Twist." The S. S. Levithian had made its first trip across the Atlantic. It was then the largest vessel afloat. It could carry a total capacity of 4,674 people. That was twenty years ago. The largest ship afloat today probably isn't known to the general public, but judging from the S. S. Levithian, it must be sensational. Guy Smith had sold his eighty acre farm to A. J. Brown for $229 per acre. Meli Peterson and John Haggard, only fourteen then, had been the outstanding feature in the Golf Tournament at the Algona Country Club. Their playing had been remarkable . . . then. Notice of Probate of Will STATE OF IOWA, KOSSUTH COUNTY, SS.
