W. Haggard Roosevelt and Lewis Up to the time this item was written, the main success of the axis forces has been gained in the United States. It is generally agreed thiil John L. Lewis and his striking coal miners have been the strongest allies of the Hitlerites and they will probably be credited by Hitler with causing the death of more American boys than have been killed in the African campaign. Of course the ordinary coal miner, many of whom have sons or brothers on the front line, are as patriotic as any of our citizens, and we hesitate to believe that they realize just what they are doing to the war effort. But John L! Lewis and other union labor leaders cannot help but know thnt they are imperilling the lives of thousands of American boys who are risking their lives for $50 per month and suffering all the hardships possible for the sake of their country. We saw a .statement made by some responsible authority showing the average weekly wage paid to the miners was $49.50 per week. Just about what the average private gets per month. Of course the boys on the fighting line get their clothes and food in addition to their monthly pay. It is true that the coal miners have a dangerous and dirty job, but it is not to be compared to the hourly danger of the boys in service, who are fully siware that each day may be their last on earth. * -K * Many think that the race riots in Detroit and the zoot suiter riots in Los Angeles were inspired by German agents in this country. But be that as it may it is certain that the American trouble makers might just as well be enrolled in the German and Jap armies fighting against their own country. When President Roosevelt accepted «» $500,000 contribution to his campaign fund in 1936 from the labor czar Lewis, he laid the .'groundwork for all this trouble. Later, it is true, xvhen he found that it was a question whether he or Lewis was running the country, he saw his tolly and broke with Lewis who went over to Willkie in the J940 election. Of course Roosevelt, who has always had his eye out for the labor vote, must realize by this time that he has built up a Frankenstein which he cannot appease. It is loo bad that old Samuel Gompers did not live long enough to be at the head of the labor unions during these trying times. No one ever accused Gompers of being a traitor to his country, nor of building up a private fortune for himself ot many millions out of the sweat and blood of the crnion working men. Just how the coal miners strike will end up it is hard to predict. The Estherville News made this pertinent remark last week: "Is the New Deal going to sell the whole country down the river for a mess of Lewis controlled votes and another four years in power 9 " * * * President Roosevelt's veto of the anti-strike bill last Friday, after passing both houses of congress by overwhelming majorities, may be "selling the country down the river" or it may not. It only took a few minutes for both houses to over-ride the veto after hearing the president's veto message read. The anti-strike bill now becomes a law at once. Here are the main points »of the new law: Give statutory authority for the president to seize war facilities. Provide for the maintenance of existing terms and conditions of employment except ns directed by the war labor board. Provide fines up to $5,000 and imprisonment for up to one year for persons instigating or aiding a strike in a government- operated war facility. Give statutory authority to the war labor board, which was created by the executive order of the president. All these provisions the president said he approved, adding that broadly speaking they incorporated into statute "the existing machinery for settling labor disputes." Of the proposed criminal penalties for instigating a strike in a government-operated plant, he said: "This would make possible the arrest of •a few leaders who would give bond for their appearance at trial. It would assure punishment for those found guilty, and might also have some deterrent effect. "But it would not assure continuance of war production in the most critical emergencies." Estherville Country Club Bought by the City It seems that up at Estherville the Country Club has disbanded and sold the club house and golf grounds to the city of Estherville, who issued bonds to pay for the popular institution rather than to see it discontinued. The Estherville club house and grounds are beautiful and compare favorably with the Algona club's set-up. We suppose that the wartime conditions were responsible for the disbandment of the club. The feos under the new municipal management will this year be $18 for family membership and next year the fee will be boosted to $25, single membership $10. Annual locker fee, $2. Just how the Algona Country Club is prospering this season we have not learned. There was some talk of discontinuing the club here for the duration, but a majority of the members voted to keep the club going notwithstanding war conditions, as the costs of kepeing up annual expenses, even though the club were closed, would be something like $700 per season. Algona is very proud of our beautiful club house and grounds, which under normal conditions amply pays its way. a happy day and I had hoped that someone would give me a tube or a tire or a few gallons of gas but I got none of those things. And the P. O. gang also remembered it was my birthday and they put one of those lousily colored cards in my post office box and it said Box Rent Due and maybe you think I hadn't ought to crab, but doggone it, why couldn't the boys have waited a day and so's it wouldn't take the joy out of my birthday, so to speak. I'm going to have to see • my congressman' about that and the banks and liquor store kept open all day which indicates that my birthday ain't as important as Lincoln's after all. The Iowa bank has put an awning on the southeast corner and it makes the finest kind of shade and now it's a good place for John Byson and Theodore Swalve, Tom Steven, Bill Galbraith, Walter Ewy and their friends to hold their corner pow wows and in the shade, but I'll bet Ralph Miller hasn't thought of the revenue that might be gotten if the bank charged so much per minute for the pow wowers to stand under the awning. This is just a hint, but Opinions of Other Editors Frank Jaqua's Editorial Quips When we are lacking in ideus for editorial comment in this column we can always depend on finding something in the editorial columns of Frank Jaqua's Humboldt Republican. We regard Editor Jaqua as one o£ the wittiest and fairest republican writers in Iowa, and while he sometimes has views at divergence with the views of «n independent paper, such us the Upper Des Moines claims to be, he oftentimes takes the very words out of our mouth, expressed in a manner we could hardly hope to equal. The pertinent paragraphs he printed in last week's Republican particularly struck our fancy and we are reprinting them below: The fourth term boosters are asking us not to talk politics for fear of disturbing the war work. . . . Perhaps if President Roosevelt could get the labor vote of 1944 out of his mind's eye, he could deal with John L. Lewis. . . . Mrs. Roosevelt says one way to enslave people is to suppress their sources of information. Now you don't suppose she was thinking of tl\e food conference, do you? . . . Irvin S. Cobb said recently that if he had to go crazy he would rather do it in Washington than anywhere else because there no one would notice it. ... Maybe the sailors and soldiers who jerked the zoot suits off the panty-waists in California, only wanted to see what those "jerks" really looked like without their clothes. . . . Somebody has suggested that the citizens could use those political brass hats in Washington for steel helmets at the front. . . • Well, they may force the small businessman o ut o? business, but he can still vpte. , . :. AdteOww^ttpn fcandout men Hold the Line, Huh! Northwood Anchor: I wish I could understand this "hold the line" proclamation of the President. It seemed to mean that food would not advance in price; might even go lower because of government subsidy, and that wages would be frozen except in a few cases of proved injustice. Yet every day reports come of advanced wages for industrial workers and on May 7 the President signed the government advanced pay bill which gives government employees, with less than $2000 a year salary, flat increases of $25 a month. How can inflation be stopped if wages continue to advance? * # * MacArthur's Friends Spencer Times: ' MacArthur's most ardent friends and admirers in this country believe that the general is being treated badly in Australia. They claim he has not been given the supplies he should have there and that he is in an inactive theatre of war where he cannot demonstrate his ability as a general. They assert he is "On the Shelf" and has been put there deliberately. The Times refuses to take any stock in that theory at all. * * * To Feed the World Sac Sun: It will be the duty of the United States to feed the nations of the world. At least that is what the nations of Europe are expecting and that is what our politicians are saying. The United States, of course, will be glad to do all within her power to produce as much as possible, and the government will cooperate to make it possible for these nations to have all that we can supply to them, but it must be borne in mind that no matter how much we produce, there will not be enough for the nations of the world of those nations continue to destroy every living thing in the way of crops on foreign soil. It will take a lot more food than can be produced in the Unitod States of America to supply the necessities of subsistence for the millions of people of Europe and Asia. What authorities really mean is that the United States must produce everything within their power to render as much help, aid and assistance as is possible to help to feed the nations of the world. But it is foolish to say, "We must feed the world." In the first place it is not good policy. It makes the other nations who are likewise strivin.;; to produce us much us possible, think that we arc conceited and have the opinion that their effort is not worthwhile. Instead of saying we must feed the world, it might be better strategy to say we must produce all that we can in helping to feed the world. And that is exactly what the farmers of San County and of the State of Iowa, are striving to do. The spring may be somewhat late and things may look a little backward right now, but with a little natural cooperation, the farmers of this grand state of Iowa will come through and produce food in greut quantities. Already there is indication of that 1'uct, und the Sun editor is reasonably sure that we shull not be disappointed. * * * OVVI Unneeded Estherville News: The move to confine the activities of OWI (Office of War [misjlnforma- tion) to the foreign field may be in the right direction. OWI is not exactly what its name implies. The American people accepted it uj a bureau to clear information from various departments of the government und to reconcile inter-depurt- mental differences to the end of bringing order out of chaos. OWI, however, has been functioning much differently thun that. The press has been handed propoganda, misinformation and fairy tales by OWI. Real news bus been bottled up and the public has been kept in the dark regarding important aspects of the war activities. OWI, supposedly, is not connected with the censorship. The censorship is a different bureau and operates on a voluntary basis, laying down only broad principles of editing designed to protect the country from leakage of important information to enemy countries. But OWI exerts the real censorship, the censorship that counts. This is not accomplished by dictating to newspapers and radio stations wh-it they can or cannot print, but simply by corking up news about the gvoernment at the sources. • OWI's record is anything but one of which to be proud. It operates abroad quite largely as a propaganda agency and, unfortunately, its activities in the domestic field have too much of that sort of flavor. Added to OWI's unpopularity because of bottling up information rather than releasing it for home consumption is the rather long list of blundering errors by OWI reporters. Significant is the resignation of many OWI men who refuse to be connected with an organization which has such policies as those of the agency. The newspapers were thoroughly deceived v/hen told that there would be an organization to get news for them. OWI has proved to be anything but that. * » # Down With the Bureaucrats Swea City Herald: Our own guess is that if the general election was to be held this fall, instead of 1944, Rosevelt would be reelected, but the republicans would be making sweeping gains elsewhere. The country, rightly so, seems to be sold on the Roosevelt manner of handling foreign affairs, but domestic affairs are entirely different. The people yearn for a housecleaning of the bureaucrats. the awning is a nice improvement to the street corner just the same. The Anti-Necktie Wearers Club is surely growing and the membership is made up of the best and the finest of Kossuth's man citizenship, so to speak. Bill Dau, John Haggard, Fred Timm, Dr. Scanlan, Joel Herbst, Fuzzy Ro- binault and Wade Sullivan are the latest additions to the club and they are all dragging down commissions on membership fees every time they sign up a new anti-necktie wearer. Chas. Egel, Irvington, and his son, Stanley, came in Thursday and not the sign of a tie and they even visited the court house and Chas. tried to hire Sheriff Cogley to make hay but the sheriff said his hay fork was on the blink. Chas. hopes to sign up some of the Irvington boys and have 'em throw their ties away. H. W. Miller, county attorney, wears a tie on Tuesday and Thursday, so he said, but he didn't explain the reason for the two days being tie days, and John Schneider, of Burt, thought maybe it was because H. W. only had the two ties. Dr. Cretzmeyer wears one of those itsy bitsy bow ties like I used to wear forty years ago and Doc says he isn't going to wear a tie like a rope around his neck, and Bill Giossi wears one of those long flowing things around his neck, long enough to hang a couple of horse thieves, so to speak, and Alvin Huenhold, even though he's on the city council, comes down town tie-less, and he wanted Bill to join up with the Club but Bill said/he'd worn a tie for so many years and it helped hold his neck in shape. And Dr. Karl Hoffman wears no tie after supper but he said he wasn't afraid to go tie-less any time and Joe Lynch always wears a tie, said he loved 'em because on account of he feels all spraddled out below his ears when he didn't have one on. Cliff Hoover, Plum Creek township, doesn't wear a tie and brags about it, but he's plenty smart, thut boy, he keeps one in his car and when he thinks it the right time he puts the tie around his neck. And Josh Blossom wears a tie so people know he HAS a tie and so does Dana Paxson and both of 'em said they didn't mind belonging to the Gulpers but they were wanting to be counted out of the anti-necktie crowd, joining fees were top high. Nevertheless, notwithstanding, the Club is sign- Chester Bailey, secretary for the Kossuth Straw Mat Mfg. Society, is writing a letter to all of the hay growers in KoSsuth advising them that the straw they .find in hay isn't good for making straw hats. He has had a lot of inquiries about it now that haying is on full blast. John Bormarin, straw picker and analyzer for the society, is emphatic about it when he says hay straw ain't no good for straw hats. Several Plum Creekers have written to Bailey and insist that they have some wonderful hay straw. Julius Baas and Roy Adams and Joe Balk submitted samples of their hay straw and Bernard Capesius, L. E. Colwell and Sqreti Didriksen of Irvington are of the opinion that Irvington hay straw is better than Plum Creek hay straw and Ray Fitch, Louis Fuhrman and John Fraser come with the statement that RiVerdale is the top hay straw grower. It begins to look like a new hat manufacturing concern should be started to make hats out of hay straw, j Might be hard on' the Kossuth Straw Hat Mfg. Society but i they can sell a hay straw ha cheaper than a straw hat I'm fo 'em starting a new hat concern Competition is the life of trade and Kossuth'county can well sup port two hat manufacturing -con cerns. Young Bill Dauffhan, he's Mr and Mrs. Daughan's boy, is now serving with the armed forces in the Carribean Sea area and when the folks asked him about sending the home paper he comes back with "If you can't send the paper clip the Ravings by that nut anc send them," and here is a young man who is plenty smart bul there must be something wrong with him if he prefers to read this junk, and last time I saw him he seemed perfectly normal in every way, too. But you can't always tell about folks because on account of the other day Henry Guderian, mail toter, called me a columnist. Oh gosh! And the other day Frenchy Haldeman and Gordy Ogg went fishing but they were skunked because "on account of they didn't catch a darned fish and on the way home their car ran over a skunk on the highway and so they weren't skunked after all and they've spent a couple of bucks apiece for deodorants to make the car sort of fit to travel in again and to keep the neighbors from setting up a howl about insulting their olfactory organs, so to speas. Merle Webster, sailor, home on leave bought a cup of coffee from Fuzzy Robinault and when he was given an itsy bitsy cup which had an itsy bitsy spoon of sugar in it he asked Fuzzy how come and Fuzzy asked him didn't he know there was a war on and Merle said he had heard something about that maybe there was a war but where he was stationed the boys could have three spoonsful of sugar for their coffee and so Fuzy gave him three teaspoonsful because on account of Merle was in the war, so to speak, and he said he wouldn't tell the OPA. —o— I like that hat which Harry Spongberg, mail toter, wears and I like the angle which it holds and I asked Henry Guderian and Kenneth Harris, also mail toters, how come they didn't get a hat like that to wear and they said the post office department had frozen 'em and they couldn't get 'em any more and so Harry is the only one in the post office who can sport the angle for wearing hats that Harry has. I've got three straw hats but there ain't any of 'em can touch a match to Harry's straw. AVHT Helpful Hints MEAL PLANNING - COOKING - SEWING A little planning for the Fourth of July should be in order now. Perhaps some think we should not have picnicking in this time of sorrow for so many. ; The boys who are far away will want' us to carry on as nearly normally as we 'can, and, to so many of them, the Fourth of July has always meant a picnic or some other sort of celebrations, so let's have the family together. If son or brother, father, husband or sweetheart—daughter or sister, get a letter telling them how the family were all together talking and thinking of them and praying for their safe return, they will be happier than to think you are not "carrying on" bravely as they are. Here are a couple of picnic menus which are not too hard to prepare and you may use your finger as you should on a picnic: Fried Chicken Shoe String Potatoes Corn on the Cob (Melted butter in bowl - brush) Radishes - Green Onions Berry Tarts Ice Tea * * * Barbecued Spare Ribs Potato Chips Salad Platter (Raw carrot strips, celery, olives, pickles) Cookies, cheese, crackers Lemonade Be sure and write—tell them who was there, what you did, said, wore, ate, played—and how you wished for them! For the Barbecued Spare Ribs prepare the following sauce: 2 No. ZV 2 cans of tomatoes or 2 quarts fresh tomatoes; 1 teaspoon ground cloves; 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon; 1 teaspoon ground allspice; 2 teaspoons celery seed; 2 teaspoons celery salt; % cup vinegar; 1 cup white sugar; V* cup canned pimentos; salt to taste. t Cook for one hour, and while hot I run the mixture through a coarse sieve. Pour over the browned spare ribs and place in a hot oven. Bake for hours. If you have a barbecue grill, the ribs may be browned on it or in the oven. Have your meat man cut them in portions leaving the bone exposed for holding them. Don't forget to take salt and sugar, paper plates, cups • Graham Cracker Ice Cream 1 cup cream, 1 cup milk, 1/3 cup honey, -1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup graham cracker crumbs. Combine all ingredients and stir until blended. This may be frozen in a freezer or automatic refrigerator. If the latter, place in tray with temperature at coldest setting until frozen one inch from sides of tray. Beat until fluffy. Fried Spring Chicken New Potatoes Gravy Cucumber - Onion Salad Buttered Beets Graham Cracker Ice Cream Iced Tea - Milk and then get that letter off right away, please. - -K Kossuth Women Attend Farm Bureau Meet at Des Moines Mrs. Albert Johnson, Corwith, County Farm Bureau Women's Chairman; Mrs. James Nyman, Bancroft, County Music Chairman and Alma Schultz, Algona, County Extension Home Economist, attended a three day state-wide program planning convention 8t Des Moines under the auspices of the State Farm Bureau Federation.
