W. Haggard The Washington War The administration down at Washington is having all kinds of trouble lately and some of the "Big shot" bureaucrats are resigning and others are "under a cloud," if you know what we mean. Lou R. Maxon, deputy administrator of the office of price administration, resigned last week, declaring that the agency is "so bound up in legalistic red tape that Houdini himself could not untangle it." Maxon, a red haired Detroit advertising executive, is said to be a very practical and sensible man and he was supposed to bring order out ot chaos. He had been offered the general manager- ship but soon saw that the office was in the hands of a lot of theorists who were using the war as a means of furthering their reform ideas, at the same time using "honest men" in OPA as a front for their efforts. Mr. Maxon says "If this group isn't curbed we are going to lose a good slice of the very freedom we are fighting for. I cannot subscribe to their obvious efforts to force radical and dangerous concepts on the public under the excuse of war time needs," Maxson assailed the OPA on a wide variety of grounds, but mainly he called attention to the presence of officials whom he described as theorists and young lawyers. He said they would stay until forced out because most of them are in better jobs than they could obtain in private lift;. Maxon, who of course now has intimate knowledge of the works and personnel of the OPA, says what we have all suspected for some time: ''We have a large number of professors and theorists whose unworkable ideas have been concealed in the rarified atmosphere of the class room. The professional mind, in my estimation is one of the most dangerous factors in our government today." It was intended that the business and industrial firms affected by frozen prices should be consulted, but this has been disregarded and boys lately out of school stumble ahead at price freezing, forcing many firms out of business. There is little attempt to observe or utilize the normal processes of business. It must be new and different and difficult or it isn't OPA. Maxon avers that "the record of the past proves- beyond a doubt that the professors and lawyers and theorists just haven't done the job." Of course the whole country has suspected for some time just what Mr. Maxon is now telling us. •K -K -K And then there is the fight between Vice President Henry Wallace and Jesse Jones, who heads the Reconstruction Finance Company and who has been in charge of dealing out the billions of lend-lease funds. Henry Wallace and his mnn Friday, a Mr. Perkins, spent the money but they had to go to Jones to get his o.k., which peeved them very much. It seems that Jones has considerable business sense and at times refused to allow the reckless squandering of funds to almost anybody who asked for a hand-out. Wallace, who has become perhaps a trifle egotistic since be• coming vice president, insisted that Jones was trying to curb his penchant for spending the taxpayers money. It is apparent that Jones, while a democrat, has little New Deal blood in his veins, but was endowed with a little common sense. This, ,<Af course, js hardly to be expected in Wash- vvg«<w at- present. The quarrel has embarrassed President Roosevelt, who last week rebuked both Wallace and Jones, at the same time removing them both from the handling of the lend-lease funds. He created a new office to take over this work under the supervision of Leo T. Crowley, a Wisconsin business man. Let us hope we will now have peace for T time at least. Mr. Roosevelt at the same time issued another warning to the heads ot his many alphabetical bureaus, that before engaging in hair pulling they should submit their troubles to him before making them public, instead of running FOR u fourth term most people would think President Roosevelt should be running FHOM a fourth term. ' What it feels like to suddenly be detailed to guard some of the German prisoners captured in Tunisia is told in the following letter received from Roland Larson, well known former Aigona boy. Roland, who Is the son of Mr. and Mrs. A. V. Larson, was a reporter for the Upper Des Moinos several years ago, later going to Chicago. After joining the army he was stationed at Camp Wolters, where he completed his basic training. He was slated for the finance office, but finally landed at Camp Gruber, Oklahoma, where he is a guard in charge of German prisoners. His letter follows: Camp Finance Office, Camp Gruber, Okla., July 13, 1943. The Aigona Upper Des Moines, Aigona, Iowa. Dear Mr. Haggard and the force: The folks just sent me an accumulation of the Aigona papers and you may be sure the old home town news is surely appreciated. In your June 3rd issue, I noticed an editorial on German prisoners and inasmuch as I have recently had personal experience with them I thought I would comment somewhat on the subject. After I completed my basic training at Camp Wolters, Texas, I was held over pending transfer to the Finance Office there,'but in the meantime the 8th Service Command sent out an urgent call for men to guard prisoners at the German internment camp here and a large contingent of men were detailed from Wolters. The next thing I knew, instead of pushing a pencil in a Finance office, I was watching, over some of Rommel's former crack Africa corps with a sub-machine gun as _a member of what they appropriately call ah M. P. Escort Guard company. The duties of these companies consist not only of guarding the prisoners here but also going to Africa after them and had it not been for my subsequent transfer to the Finance office here in the main training camp, I would be on my way to Casablanca or some other port right now. I regret that I did not have the opportunity to get across at least once as it would have been . an interesting experience. Now as to the prisoners and their treatment. There are many things about the camp that are regarded as military secrets so I shall not divulge any of that type of information. The prisoners themselves are from the Africa Corps and seemingly very young and surprisingly meek, but I imagine any of us would be too if we were staring into a shotgun or sub-machine gun. As a whole they are (or seem to be be) very content and happy here but there is no reason why they should not be. The army is abiding strictly to the rules laid down to the Geneva Conference and the prisoners are given the same rations as our soldiers and housed in the same type of barracks. They are given comparative freedom inside the stockade, have their own P X, are free to landscape the grounds in any way they see fit (within reason, of course) and get paid for working. Groups are taken out to farms in this vicinity where they may be worked under close scrituny of the guards and many applications have been received from farmers for their services. Some of them have extremely interesting stories to tell and most of them are gradually attaining an understanding and limited speaking knowledge of English. We only hope that our boys, held prisoner in their camps, may be receiving a measure of the treatment we afford these men. By the way, the new Rainbow division is being activated here this week and should bring back pleasant memories to some of the '18 boys. It certainly is good to hear from my friends in Aigona and hope I can stop there on my furlough. I expect my corporal technician rating soon and intend to apply for admission to officers' training in finance after I have had more experience in the work. My wife is down here now and we have an apartment in Muskogee, about 18 miles from camp. Yours very truly, Pvt. Roland A. Larson. The War Profiteers The terribly high prices now being charged for all fruit and vegetables are laid to the retailers by former Senator Herring, who is now assistant to Price Administrator Prentiss Brown. Mr. Herring says that the retailers are solely responsible for soaring prices and apparently think they are grabbing while the grabbing is good, Lut says that the producers should receive more profit incentive. Herring told grower representatives from Florida, Texas, Arizona and California, who were in Washington seeking; definite information as to future price ceilings. Growers 'say that the uncertainty of vegetable and fruit prices keep them wondering what is going to happen next. Herring told the delegation that the OPA had found numerous instances where the retailers profits have ranged from 100- to> 300 per cent, notwithstanding the tact that the OPA regulations limit the mark-up to 40 per cent. It might be a good idea to crack down, on these- profiteers. Of course we take it that there could bo none in Aigona. Down at Moline, Illinois, the OPA found: that the price of raspberries has!been 35 cents a quait higher than the frozen price ordered by hte OPA. The OPA ceiling on red raspberries is. 39 cents a quart and they were selling at 75 cents,, and prices charged for black raspberries were 50e to 70c a quart. Spencer Times: Some time ago this column informed its readers that the Work Progress Administration, affectionately known in this country as WPA, was dead. That fact was true for all WPA projects were halted, some of them only partly finished. Now comes word from Washington of the funeral of the deceased when the WPA turned back to the treasury some 130 million dollars and really went out of existence. Only a small "liquidation" staff of the depression-born relief agency remains, getting records and accounts into shape for a final report of its operations. Clarion Monitor: No one can be surprised that the Democratic national committee- is Heeling out the public relative to the chances of the fourth term. The national polls indicate that if the war is still in a critical stage next year the president will be re-elected or elected to- a fourth terra. Also they indicate that if the war is over a fourth term would be defeated by a large majority. This is heartening to those who feel that we- have traveled toward regimentation and national idealistic planning long enough. Of course those who believe that our lives should be ordered by planners will want to continue their work. In the meantime let's not befog the issue. It will be whether or not the American people are to continue to be told or if they will tell: their leaders what they want and get it or get new leaders. Democracy on Trial at Home Jack Hammond in Decorah Journal President Roosevelt and the Armed Forces are doing a magnificent job on the war front, but Democratic institutions are on trial on the home fronts today as never before. Events like the coal strike, the resignations of outstanding leaders like Chester Davis, who was in a position where needed as food czar, the muddle the Office of Price Administration as regards price rollbacks and subsidies. When the direct representatives of the people, the members of Congress, vote more thun two to one to override the veto of the anti-strike bill and when congressmen by a vote of nearly live to one declare against the principles of subsidy payments, the executive should listen to the voice of Democracy. In Decorah we have seen 250 lockers at the Holmberg & Ercikson market closed just because the O P. A. officials and the meat market priprie- tors could not get together and work out a program that would permit Holmberg & Erickson to operate the lockers. One cannot expect the market to operate lockers at a loss. Yet those lockers are more needed today to preserve meats and foods than ever Other Decorah markets have had to discontinue fresh meat sales for a time because of the confusions as to whether the price rollbacks ordered by a P. A. must be met or whether Congress has ordered no subsidies. Senator Joseph Ball, of Minnesota, who has vigorously supported the administration war policies, has the following to say: "Democratic institutions are on trial today. The fault does not lie with the people. They want intelligent, courageous leadership, leadership that will tell them the facts, adopt policies based on those facts and then carry out those policies efficiently and impartially. I believe it is the scarcity of that kind of leadership, both in Congress and in the executive branch, that is responsible for the weaknesses in our home front effort. "It is difficult in any event, under our system because of our two parties, for Congress and the executive jointly to formulate these basic policies. I believe it could have been done, but no attempt has been made to do it. In the field of labor relations, the coal strikes were the direct result of failure to adopt a national policy and procedure and stfck to, it firmly. The logical culmination was John L. Lewis' open defiance of the Government. He had learned well the lesson that those who are most ruthless in pressing their demands, regardless of the effect on the nation's welfare, get the most. (The veto halted him.) "Unquestionably, the coal miners have legitimate grievances. They were entitled to press their case. Lewis did not do that. Instead he disregarded these procedures and used the union's strategic economic position to threaten the war effort unless his demands were granted." RAVIHGS bv REESE A Llttlt of Thit -- A LlHl* of Th.t ~ Not Much of Anything Was over at Whlttemore Frlda. night and took In the play put on by the men-actors of that town and all of 'em were impersonating women and wore short dresses and the play was highly hilarious and the leg show was good because on account of none of the boys wore sox and Pete Schumacher, impersonating Kate Smith sang a song and had the most "eminine looking legs of all the boys and there were the darndest variety of legs at that and I am n favor of the men keeping on rearing long pants because of account of some knees were sort f door-knobby and the calves >vere by no means what you'd call perfect and handsome but, of course, they serve the purpose of being used to walk with all the ime. The best team acting in the >lay was Henry Bonnstetter as a bride and groom and Russ Russ ieath and Henry makes a lovely •ride and held his bouquet of veeds in a charming and lovely manner and he had a long flowing eil and wore a white dress and all of the wedding guests wanted to kiss the bride but Henry wasn't so hot for the kissing and he wore his shoes without rubber heels and Ewald Rusch was the butler and he bulled back and forth and made the announcements and John Uhlenhake was the minister and he rang the bell smoking a big cigar and Harold Elbert was a nice country girl but he didn't have no shoes on and Andrew I Elbert was the baby and he ha a nice infant wail and Herber Zumach was Aunt Jemima but h° didn't bring no pancakes'. Gen Martini was the jilted maiden and he can cry and weep with the bus of 'em and the old maid was Orville Kollasch and he had left his girdle and garters at home anr had an awful time keeping his legs covered with nylons and Glen McCleish was Mae West and he asked me to come up and see him some time he was graceful but ; ain't gonna visit with him anc Earl Dixon played the banjo anc Jim Butler danced a jig and the> both wore men's pants so I couldn't see their legs and it was Bud Kelly who was dolled up like the South Sea Island girl who wiggles and he sure could do his stuff and Eddie Schumacher was the maid of honor and he has nice lines, but wore a long dress and I got a big kick out of those birds trying to imitate women but there a republican and not so hot for feeding a couple of the opposition, so to speak, but here was a banker and a lawyer and they were both nice to me and John parked his car a long ways from the liquor store and he said he Was in favor of all Whittemore drivers doing the same thing to keep suspicions out of the minds of folks when the Whittemore boys are in town. Horace Clapsaddle has cut off that individual mustache he's been growing for a long time and I didn't hardly know him when I met him and he said he was going to grow a new one in competition with some of the Whittemore growers like Bill Rusch are putting out. And while I've got a lot of faith in the Whittemore guys I'm putting my shekels on Medin as the Horace because on account of I was scared to know what a swell mustache grower he is. "Harold Lloyd" Guderlan and Fire Chief Bill" Spongberg, both of "em mail toters, are holding .•ontest as to who wears his ha ;he Tightest and Ken Harris is th udge and he's maybe prejudices i bit but he says neither of 'em seem to know which is the righ way to wear a hat. But the con ,est is on and I'm not putting u[ any money on either of 'em. Brail Wright has a necktie anr ic-says it's not a new one, in fac he's had it so long that in the morning he just snaps his linger and the tie wraps' itself arounc his neck and all he has to do to i is .to wipe the gravy off and it's ready to wear for the day. Now there's something. I've tried to get Mel Griffin, Joe Bradley and Big Bill Barry inlo the No-Necktie Club but they won't sign up because on account of their necks are so used to a winding around and the tie helps hold their shirt collars together when there ain't a button there to hold 'em, so to speak. And Chas, Ostwinkle says he always wears a tie because on account of when he gets ready to go to bed iie doesn't feel undressed until lie takes his tie off and he .might p,o io bed some night in his clothes if it wasn't for the tie he takes off. wasn't a darned one of 'em done the dishes. And I went into Murtagh'* bank the other day and was drawing my breath and in came Bill Harrison, of Plum Creek, and he had other things he could draw besides his breath, and he sat downs on the nice settee right beside me and all the time I wanted to lay down and sort of relax and stretch out and Bill didn't want to catch on and he sat there and I couldn't lay down and I just had to sit up and take it and I asked Charlie couldn't he sort of build on to that settee so I could take a nap and still there'd be room for Bill and Charlie said nothing doing because on account of the radiator was in the way and just then Gene came in from some place where he'd had his gulping coffee exercise and I bought a bond and Bill cashed a check and I wasn't sleepy any more and Bill said to come out and see him some time. John Uhlenhake was over from Whittemore Thursday and he and Don Hutchison and me we put down a penny and done some guessing and Don paid for the coffee for John and me and it just hurt him to beat the band because on account of, after all, here John and me are democrats and Don's I took a bath Sunday afternoon and I realized it was a mistake WHITTEMORE POST STAGES COMEDY ON FRIDAY NIGHT Whittemore—To a good sized nudience In the Academy hall here Friday night 20 of Whitte* more and vicinity men staged n hilarious comedy entitled "A Wo- rnanless Wedding."
