HnKftard The War Prison Camp Many Algona people have been doubtful as to whether the war prison camp now being located in Algona would prove an asset to the community or otherwise, but from a letter received last week from Scottsbluff, Nebraska, it would seem that the people there are making no complaint, and in fact seem to enjoy the situation as it has developed. Mr. C. A. Phillips, secretary of the Algona Chamber of Commerce, who is always looking after the interests of our community life, wrote T. L. Green, acting secretary of the Scotts- bluft Chamber of Commerce inquiring how the new prison camp there had affected the community life. In reply Mr. Green gave the following comprehensive statement of the situation there: "Our city has something over 12,000 population, and we have here a War Prisoner Camp with 3,000 prisoners and about 700 soldiers; and also an Army Air Base with about 2,000 men. We have had facilities and hnve been able nicely to take care of the above sized army groups. We have established a fine large Service Men's Center, financed by Government grant, but operated and staffed by our local people. "About our only difficulties here have come through the proximity (50) miles of the large Alliance Air Base where there are 12,000 or more men stationed, including many para-troopers. Large numbers of these men have sometimes week-ended at Scottsbluff, with some disturbances resulting. There have been no troubles in connection with our local army groups. "We have however found it advisable to make a 9:30 curfew law for young people under 16 years of age. And we have also established a Youth's Center near the High School, to operate which we raised $2,500.00 by subscription. "At first our restaurants had some trouble regarding points, by reason of so many soldiers and construction workers eating down town. But on proper showing being made, our County Rationing Board has always taken care of them promptly. And I think they are all now having the points necessary to conduct their businesses. "Our War Prisoners (Italians) are now assisting in harvesting our crops, and doing fine work. There have been absolutely no difficulties with them. "If there is any more information I might give, kindly write me. I might say that I believe you will find the War Prisoner Camp to be an asset to your community." What's Ahead? At the bond meeting of business men and sales people held last Thursday at the Methodist •church under the auspices of the Algona Chamber of Commerce, John H. DeWild, the manager of the Trade Promotion Division of the Minneapolis Civic and Commerce Association, gave a very able talk on post war conditions. Mr. De- Wild is a former newspaper man, having been in the newspaper business in Iowa for thirty years and later was the editor of an Albert Lea, Minnesota newspaper for several years. He says that he has spoken to audiences of business men and sales people in many cities lately and that only in a few instances has he discovered much interest in what is to come after the war. He said that too many of us think that after the war we are going to start in just where we left off, but we will find that we are in a new world, and will face an entirely new and expanded industrial program. There is going to be a public works program, nation wide. . . . Millions of miles of roads will be built. A million new fabricated homes will be built, and enormous building material industries will develop, Mr. DeWild says. Railroads will spend billions for equipment and roadbeds. There will be a great expansion of electric power. There will be great development In industries, now depressed by War. There- will be miraculous developments in the scientific world. Plastics and synthetic rubber will boom. Artificial silk, nylon, rayon and Other .fabrics will prevail. Travel will be mostly by air. We quote Mr. DeWild further: "When our fighters come home, we must have jobs for them. They're not going to be pushed around. Industry must develop. What does this all mean to Algona and Kossuth county? It means the greatest era of business volume the state has ever witnessed, if we're ready and prepared. A major housing and building program that will develop into a building boom. Nationally that means an expenditure of more than $10,000,000,000 for the country; more than $176,000,000 for Iowa, and $1,309,000 for Kossuth. Three out of ten home owners will paint, plan interior decorations, remodel and modernize bathrooms, kitchens and heating equipment—a national $6,000,000,000 program for the country; $105,960,000 for Iowa, and $784,000 for Kossuth. New automobiles are going to be wanted. More than 20 per cent of cars in use are ten years old or over. Immediate postwar purchases nationally are expected to reach 2,590,000 cars—amounting to more than 4,000 for Algona. Women are going to fix up their homes and add new equipment. Major appliances, nationally, will amount to an anticipated $860,185,000, or about $109,000 for Kossuth. Furniture and home furnishings will witness another boom —$709,905,000 at retail nationally; and something like $93,000 for Kossuth. When? Buying will start just as soon as industry can swing back onto civilian production after the war." The Bond Drive Workers The Kossuth county Third War Bond drive has gone over big and has exceeded the quota of $1,153,000 and will perhaps reach the tidy sum ol $2,000,000 or better. Gene Murtagh, chairman of the bond drive should be given the main credit for his organization of the drive, which was so successfully carried out by the banks and .post- offices of the county, ably assisted by a number ot volunteer workers such as Mr. and Mrs. N. C. Rice, of tho Call Theatre, the Algona liquor store, which has a state record for bond and stamp sales, Algona National Farm Loan Association, Harold Hutchins, manager, and other individuals, many of whom devoted considerable time to the drive. Mr. Murtagh, who had active charge of the drive in the county, spent his entire time for over three weeks, engineering the drive and personally soliciting. His personal enthusiasm anil good work had a lot to do with the final success of the bond drive. We take off our hat to Gene and his fine crew of patriotic workers. Kossuth county is never found at the rear of any procession. Opinions of Other Editors Social Security Funds Spent Clarion Monitor: There is supposed to be a deposit of more than $4,300,000,000 in social security funds in the United States treasury. In fact there is nothing there but promises to pay issued in lieu of the cash that was spent in government operation. When social security payments are met they will have to be met with the proceeds of current taxes or bond sales. Not to get nasty about it, but if any of our great insurance companies did .with their funds what the United States is doing with the social security funds the officials would be convicted and thrown into prison. A congressional study of the affairs of social security will be made. Senator George, Democrat, from Georgia, is the head of the move. He speaks of the social security fund as supposedly intact, though the cash has been spent as stated above. * * * Government Causes Inflation Clarion Monitor: It is rumored that the contractors at the Algona war prison are paying wages so high that they are attracting workmen from all sections—to the detriment of local industry. Should such things be permitted to happen? That's what makes inflation. In fact, the government has created more causes for inflation than it has erected against it. * * • Over 100 Nucleal Bureaus Humboldt Independent: There are now 102 alphabetical agencies in governmental affairs. They are scattered from Washington to Wilmington, to New Jersey, to Chicago, to St. Louis, and to Maine and Florida. No one can keep track of them. They all have their high salaried managers, rented or government built spacious office rooms, droves of stenographers and copyists and statisticians and the like. And they are only a part of the cost of government. # * * Humboldt Republican: Back in Hoboken, New York, is a foreman of a work room that feels that workmen should whistle or sing at their work. He says it shows that they are happy. But does it? Every workman who has had experience in crowded work rooms knows that a whistler or singer is a pest and is frowned on by all his fellow-workers. When a man is busy working and whistles he always whistles one- bar of the same tune over and over again. Is that conducive to better work? Can anything get on the nerves of his fellow-workers quicker? Printing offices usually have a private grave yard by the back door where they bury whistlers. They are just killed and dumped in a hole in the ground. They are not even given funerals. No Such Thing as Gratitude Humboldt Republican One of the lessons we should have learned from the First World War is that gratitude does not follow international giving—or any other giving for that matter. In international affairs the generous giver is regarded as a sap, and a sap never commands the respect of anyone. If our statesmen want to serve their country they should insist on impartial dealings with cm- allies, keeping in mind at all times that America comes first so far as they are concerned. Any other course is suicidal. There is danger that our free spenders are already promising or have promised entirely too much. They have been foolishly generous with our people's money. A junket of senators who have just returned from a tour of the battle fronts report that our country is both doing and giving more than its share. Not that our efforts should slacken, but •that our allies should spur their own. We are being and have been rationed on jgasoline. It has been stated by administration representatives that the gas was and is a neces- •sity for the war effort and there is not enough to serve the war and the civilians too. This might have been true when the Mediterranean was tied up by Germany and England's oil in the Persian Gulf was unobtainable, but now that the Mediterranean is in the control of the allies, English oil can and should be shipped to the battle front and relieve the strain on American oil. It is said that the output of the his Persian gulf refineries could be increased forty per cent. Then why not? The senators also were interested in the situation. They think the allies are not toe rubber from Ceylon that they should couldI with doublfe tree tapping which has been "recommended. They were told that this method would increase the yield 50,000 tons a year. The double tapping is prevented by friction between the colonial officials in Ceylon and Delhi that prevents the importation of the necessary labor. It is said that there is no international agreement among the allies relative to air rights after the war. They feel that Americans should have free access to the many air fields they are building at this time. The visiting senators heard a good deal about the British plans for extending their air operations in Africa after the war. Also it was reported that England will insist on holding Hong Kong after the war. The senators also commented on the visible superiority of the British representatives over our own in the international fields. These are matters of mismanagement or incompetence on the part of our foreign representatives. With these thoughts in the minds of congress it will be difficult to get- some international measures through that body after the war. Obligations assumed by our representatives, and deals made by them that conflict with views held by congress are very likely to be repudiated at home. In fact if such matters are not attended to at this time we are very likely to.have a number of repudiated international obligations after the war. These things should be settled now. It is not to the interest of international unity or good feeling to permit our representatives to hold out inducements or to give promises that the home people will not endorse. Now is the time to say "if if" and "but but." It will be too late if we wait until we are pledged to things we cannot accept, and an indignant congress repudiates work that has been done. RAVINGS bv REESE A LiHlt of ThU » A Llttl. of That -• Not Much of Anything I'll admit that the leaves on the different breeds of trees are beautifully colored right now but just the same they're a darned nuisance falling all over my lawn and I gotta rake 'em up and burn 'em and I'm in favor of inventing a tree which will eat its own leaves every fall and I won't have to' do any raking or else fix it so you can move the trees off the lot out into the country and let 'em stand around until the leaves have fallen off and then bring 'em back to town for the winter and the summer' shade next year. It's a cinch that there are billions of leaves cluttering up the sidewalks and streets right now and which is a nuisance but there ain't anything I can do about it, so to speak. I've arranged with Jim Hoffman to be the official straw hat executioner next fall and the guy who wears his straw hat after September 1st I take it off his bean and place it in the main drag and Jim drives over it with his coal truck and there ain't gonna be any more hat after that. I saw an Algona guy wear a straw hat the other day but he was digging potatoes and I couldn't get to him to pick up his straw, but it reminded me of what's going to happen next year where the law is volated - - - Jim and I'll see to that. And I found one of our Influential coffee gulpers at Rotary the other day and I saw him put a hunk of ice in his coffee and it was Dave Leffert and he said he put the ice in the coffee to cool it )ff and to weaken it and to make t more drinkable, so to speak, but only puts ice in it when he has the ice, and that's what Clarence Pollard does, too, when he has the ce, and personally I should think ;hey'd melt and drink the ice and 'orget the coffee. Atlolph Fuhrmann of Riverdalc township, has agreed to take OV.T the leadership of the Red Undy Club in that township and he is now busy getting members for the club and he finds there are some of the men in Riverdale knp>v what Red Winter Undies are like and how they make an itch on a ;uy's hide while others don't seem to know that red undies are warmer than white ones. Raymond Thilges is going to be the secretary of the club because on account of he is a firm believer n the color and John Bormann is cng to be the treasurer because on account of he can count money and he's got a bank account to ceep it in and the directors are M. T. McGuire, Nicholas Weydert, Wm. Reding and Julius Jecker. Now there's a good or- anization to promote and per- jetuate the Red Undies Club in Hiverdale. Ben Reid of Union •ownship and Jess Grub, of Plum ^reek township, have indicated w heir intention to organize a club out there and will hold election of officers at 4 o'clock next week., I met.a Kossuth man the other day who has less worries than any man in the county and it was Willis Cotton of Lone Rock and never wears a hat, spring, fall, winter, summer, and he never has any worries about straws, felts, stovepipes, caps, ear laps, hat bands, or anything nor when the season begins or stops and look at all the money he saves by not laving to keep a supply of hats on land and he said he'd be glad to lelp me enforce the spring, summer, fall and winter hat laws, ;n 'act I could borrow his pick-up any time to run over hats involved in seasonal violations and he certainly doesn't look as though _oing hatless was getting him down in the least, in fact I've a notion to do as he has done, tet Alex Radig burn all my hats and ceep health like Willis is. Got another haircut last week - - gee, those things come often now since the barbers have put ;he price up to 60c and it just ieems that my locks grow so much' faster 'n* they did when a haircut was only two bits and Hank Furst says, my hair grows fast anyway and then Andy Foster came in and so he had an idea because on account of it seems that the whiskers on a guy's face grow so fast they have to be cut off every day and Andy says what I should do is to transplant my bald head hide where my chin is and I'd have a full head of hair and a bald face and that's an idea if it could be worked out but it would work a hardship on the barbers and there wouldn't be much shaving, to do so far as we bald headed guys are concerned. And so I put on my sailor straw hat Saturday afternoon to keep from being sun stroked and there on the main drag I met Dr. Amunson and he wanted to know how come and then Joe Lowe came along and he tried to burn the straw but his match wouldn't set it afire and Frank Skilling said he'd go home and get his gun and shoot it off my head and so I went to Lone Rock because on account of I thought it was Alex Redig's place to burn that hat and there was C. M. Gross and K. G. Ewoldt and John Behrends and Albert Hutchinson and Erwin Wetzel and they were all wearing summer straws and so I asked Fred Schultz would he kick a hole in my hat and he wouldn't because on account of was not supposed to destroy hats during the duration but he said he'd kick me into Burt township but he didn't, and so I borrowed a cigaret from Frank (Deacon) Merrow and wore the hat all afternoon. And Sheriff Art .Cogley and Leo Immerfall were at Lone Rock and Leo said Jess Blanchard knew who had phoned for the sheriff to come up and watch me and Jess said I needed watching because on account of I was a democrat and I went to the bank and wanted to borrow two bits and Ernest Jensen said he'd lend me two bits out of his pocket but I had to have collateral to borrow from the bank and I could get Fred Genrich and Bill Flaig to sign with me but Norman Cotton was -still mad because he always gets mad when he shaves himself and that's the only way he gets a good shave and he was shaved good Saturday and I went out to the ball game and played in the band and I thought maybe the boys would give me back the forty cents admission but they didn't and the band leader didn't offer to pay me for playing with the band so I couldn't have been so good a player and Jack Quinn, he's the mayor of Lone Rock, he gave me a key to the city but I couldn't find any place it would open, not even the beer parlor and so I came back to Algona still wearing my sailor straw but I had a nice time in Lone Rock and it was a good ball game and Fred Flaig said I was as nuts as always but otherwise I feel O. K. —o— I was at BUI Ludwte's house Saturday evening and he's got more pencils than any drug store in Algona and he has 'em fastened on a nice card and there were 52 of 'em and not one like another and they came from everywhere and I guess Bill's a sort of connoisseur whatever that is of pencils and he said they'd all write and he had ten toad stabbers there, too, big and little but he said he hadn't stabbed a toad since he was a kid and he had 12 different watch fobs from all over tne country and all he needed to use 'em was eleven more watches or alarm clocks to fasten 'em to and it was surely a unique and interesting display but he said he didn't care to have any pencils I had because on account of he was saving pencils which were from famous folks and I just couldn't figure out what he meant by that, and me the most famous figure in Algona, so to speak. All the pencils had leads in 'em, too, and they could be used for writing. Martin, home. The latter underwent an operation on Sept. 27 to correct some trouble in his necK. He is still in a cast and It 16 hoped that his trouble is corrected. Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Balgeman have moved int6 the Mertz residence which they purchased a few weeks ago.

Follow WICKS VATROHOL Overweight Oil Undermines Your Car Why Lightest grades of oil are made safe for you by changing to Winter OIL-PLATING Any oil that has been doing its best in your car for a while back, will be badly overweight this Winter. Everything ever said about not being caught with overweight oil goes double today on account of rationing. Your battery has been undercharged, because your car now runs fewer miles per start. Your gasoline has been wasted by the drag of overweight oil. Your engine has been abused because it hasn't been warm steadily enough for ideal lubrication. Your car could approach the end of its rope with any overweight oil apt to become jelly-like. Before Winter causes that, go liglit* Whatever you do, change oil for lightness. At the same time though, you can make the whole big change to an OIL-PLATED engine, by getting popular-priced Conoco N'& motor oil—just as light as needed. OIL-PLATING is applied to inner engine surfaces as closely as chrome plating on your 'bumpers. The "magnet-like" properties .of a Conoco N f J» synthetic are the basis of OIL-PLATING. No plating would all drain down to the crankcase fast. -It can long remain at its topmost point to safeguard the very first starting stroke. And right after that, even the lightest Conoco N'A oil assures an extremely strong normal type of fluid oil film. Oil film and OIL-PLATING are both present to rebuff wear, and that's how your engine can go through a long Winter—and a long War—always using- its lightest possible N^-h oil economically. Change at Your Mileage Merchant's Conoco station today. Continental Oil Company Dread Engine Acid is Fought by OIL-PLATING Normal combustion always leaves acids inside of your engine when it stops. Formerly it seldom stood idle long. Soon mileage and speed heated your engine enough to oust acids. But nowadays rationing may force long rests, while corrosive acids gnaw. To combat corrosion, metals are plated. You combat acid corrosion with your engine OIL-PLATE1X CONOCO W MOTOR OIL Bits About Them at West Bend Mr. and Mrs. E. D.
