Hnggnrd No Weasel Words from Willkie Wendell Willkie made some of the old republican standpat bones rattle down at St. Louis the other day when he told them just where he stood in a speech he had been invited to make by them with the object of embarrassing him. Willkie is no pussyfooting politician, such as the old hidebound boys are accustomed to and his talks are refreshing in their candor. In most things we think Willkie has the right view, but his internationalism is perhaps a trifle too strong to suit us, but no one can complain that he has not explained his exact position. Willkie sees the good and bad points of the New Deal and is strong in condemning a life term for any president. We think that he has the ball and is going down the field with small chance of being overtaken by Dewey. Hurrah for Wendell. Seems to Dislike New Deal The Upper Des Moines believes that it is a poor time to harp on the shortcomings of the federal government during a war that is taxing our energies to the uttermost, but there are some folks who do not hesitate to seek out the mistakes and mismanagement of the administration at any time, and we will admit that there is pienty to criticize. There is a man down at Houston, Texas, who is bitter against the New Deal and President Roosevelt and he started out some months ago to find something on them. His name is E. M. Biggers and he has issued a pamphlet calling attention in strong language to their delinquencies. Mr. Biggers says this is the goofiest period of America's history, and that the country is governed by bureaus, bureaucrats and crackpots; governed by those who were never elected by the people, nad are not accountable to the people. Mr. Biggers has attempted to obtain a list of all of the government bureaus, but was told that a complete list of these government agencies and bureaus would take months to compile and the cost would be prohibitive. However according to the federal register on June 11, 1943, there were 2,241, of which 96 had power to complete most any ordinary real estate deal or loan and are competing with private enterprise which pays taxes while these agencies ara not subject to taxation. Mr. Biggers particularly objects to regimentation, and when asked if he would rather go back to the hard times of 1932, he said yes. We quote lum in part: "I would prefer what we had when Mr. "Roosevelt took charge to what we have now, • but I am not referring to the war part. "Then we had distress, but we had our rights, we had our liberties, we had our self- respect, we had our initiative, we had self- confidence. We had faith in our Government, and faith in our ability to come out of the depression. The 'gimme' era had not blossomed. J 'We did not have 'verboten' signs at every turn; we had not been fingerprinted, numbered, regimented. We had not been told where we could work, when we could work, and for what salary we could work. We had not been told what we could plant, how much of the crop we could harvest, where we could sell it, and for what price we could sell it. We had not been told what we could buy, when we could buy it, where we could buy it, and the number of points we had to pay for it. "Had the people of America been warned of the ultimate cost of the hypocritical generosity of those experimenters in Washington, such a foolish program would never have been allowed. "Then we were individually burdened Avith debts, but now look at what we are collectively burdened with, and in addition we have all these damn bureaus on our backs. "Yes, I would prefer a system that allowed me to buy that for which I did not have the money to pay, than a system that forbid me to buy that for which I did have the money to pay. I object to regimentation; object to being ruled by a bunch of fan- tailed theorists who are attacking everything that has made America great—even the geography, the calendar, the clock, and the unchangeable law of supply and demand. "I objected then and I object now to the slaughtering of some 2,600,000 pigs; hun- dreds of thousands of brood sows; more than 800,000 dairy cows, not even allowing their hides to be saved because that would lower the price of leather, when at that time shoes were so high most people could not afford a new pair. 1 objected to destroying hundreds of thousands of acres of growing farm products, the essentials and necessities of life. All this with millions hungry and unclothed. Somehow I feel that God will punish those who do such foolish things. "The Roosevelt New Deal Party will go down in history for just what it is: A rotten, selfish, plundering political machine. I do not believe that any true Democrat can go > along with the Kelley-Nash-Mead-Flynn- Hague outfit—every one of them a front rank New Dealer. "The whole policy of the Roosevelt New Deal Party seems to be to upset everything that is proven. We were wrong yesterday, therefore we are right today because we are different. If things are scarce we shall make them too plentiful; and if too plentiful we shall make them to high. "I have in my possession a list of large land owners in Texas who were paid $5,000 and more per year for not producing crops. Many of them are big ranches, insurance companies, and corporations that never did produce crops. Others were paid more for allowing their land to He idle than they could have made by working it. The tenants , went to the cities and got on relief, the lands grew up in Johnson grass and weeds, and thousands of rich bottom farms are now ruined for all time—a high price the land owner paid for New Deal relief. "I love my country, love its past, I love what its future can be. The same methods that made America great can make it even greater, I have fear of what is in store unless those in charge at Washington take back to Congress the control you have surrendered to the President and these selfish Bureaus and Agencies. I pray that you be given the courage to do so." Mr. Biggers seems to overlook the fact that in war times regimentation is necessary as well as many other things that would not be tolerated in time of peace. However it is noted that he has no criticism of the conduct of the war. We all realize that the war must be won before we begin quarreling about the New Deal and the alphabetical bureaus that seem so wasteful and silly. We are inclined to believe that when peace comes the New Dealers will be given attention, and until then we must devote our entire energies in support of the acknowledged success of the administration in prosecuting the greatest war of all history. Opinions of Other Editors Our Heavy Burden Grinnell Herald: We have read that every 45 average citizens of the country, such as you and I, are saddled with the responsibility of supporting some government employe in the style to which he has become accustomed under the New Deal. The unfortunate thing about it is that the federal employe who is thus supported gets a salary which exceeds the average income of the 45 persons who support him. We gravely question whether this muster roll of federal employes is necessary, just as we question the necessity of making it larger, as there is every indication that the administration is endeavoring to do. Nevertheless we aren't looking for any change from the swollen condition until after the 1944 election. It wouldn't be good politics to sacrifice all those votes. This means, of course, laying aside all considerations of common sense but such considerations apparently were forgotten years and years ago. Just how long we common folks can continue to bear this burden is a matter which gives us great concern, even though it doesn't seem to bother the administration in the least. We rejoice in a president who loves to spend other people's money. The coming of the war has given him a glorious opportunity and he is making the most o£ it. We'll say he is. * * • One Road to Inflation Decora'.i Public Opinion: One legitimate complaint often heard lately against the new deal focuses attention upon wages paid to unskilled workers in war industries. Rep. Albert J. Engel (R) of Michigan, investigating such wages found farmer boys, 'gas station attendants, grocery store clerks, drygoods store clerks, former automobile salesmen, etc., with no special skill making from $120 to $220 every two weeks. . . . Girls in one plant, after two or three weeks of training are earning as much as $269.72 a month. . . . People back home in the small towns where wages have received little stimulus feel that they are paying the extra wages earned by the war workers, for this abnormal wage-scale has skyrocketed living costs. * * * A Scurvy Trick Webster City Freeman: We think it a scurvy trick for our government to freeze wages and then offer higher pay to induce workers to leave their civil jobs and accept jobs with Uncle Sam. They fix it so employers cannot pay more and then come along and offer higher pay. * * * The Forthright Willkie Grinnell Herald: Wendell Willkie didn't lose any stature in our estimation when he came out flat footed the other day in favor of a Republican party with a liberal platform for the 1944 election. He said that if such a platform were adopted he would "give it my complete and undeviating service, whether as the convention's nominee or as a worker in the ranks." The thing we like about Mr. Willkie is that he makes no bones about where he is. There is no pussy" footing about him. We have faith to believe that he means just exactly what he says and to say the least his attitude is refreshing when compared to that of some of the Old Guard who seek to govern Republican policies. It isn't any wonder that they do not like Mr. Willkie, but the people do and the fact may well be recognized. Incidentally, did you notice that a poll of Oregon Republicans on their choice for a presidential candidate had Willkie far in the lead? They did and we believe that their attitude is significant. Income Tax Reports Silly Decorah Journal If you could not understand the federal income tax report you might have been expected to file Wednesday, don't think you are slipping or that your mentality is below average. "I do not believe President Roosevelt «ould accurately fill out one of these blanks," Commentator Paul Mallon reports. "It is doubtful that he or any other taxpayer can acurately fill out one of these blanks. . . . "The Treasury has now come forth with the most complicated legal phrasing in the most perplexing form which an individual has never been confronted, even in these days of complicated forms. ... No one understands it thoroughly. . . . "No citizen in this country can face his tax problem for the next year without expert advice. "Many employers are furnishing tax lawyers to help employes with their returns. "The average man will have to hire a tax lawyer or consult an internal revenue bureau agent available onliy in the larger cities (this is tree) Even if the regulations were not written iu impenetrable legal verbiage, the confusions between this and last year, withholding victory tax, payment of back increases and 25 per cent of the forgiveness year, make the simplest case too complicated for average understanding. When the government reaches a stage that Federal income tax forms cannot be filled out by a person of average intelligence an overhaul-, ing if not a housecleaning is needed. The Home Front situation darkens as the war front bright-, ens. With the many hours that thousands of taxpayers pore over these complicated forms, many years of man-power are wasted and the confusion makes nervous wrecks of taxpayers. Government requirements should be simple and direct. Taxation is difficult, but the methods MUST be simplified. A federal retail sales tax would be much more simple if a method to reach the wealthy to pay proper proportions could also be set up. Possibly the armed forces could teach the Treasury department a few things about how to operate with less confusion. Let Congress assert itself or give up to the bureaucrats who dictate directives that are taking the place of laws that Congress, as the elected representative body of the voters, should enact RAVINGS by REESB A Little of f hit » A Littl* of TH« •• Not Mitch of Anything The strong fall wind last week and the fast falling leaves just raised the dickens here by blowing the main drag full of leaves like the trues grew in the cement sidewalks and which they don't and there was a ton in front oi Fred Kent's office and I asked him did he want me to sweep "em off the sidewalk and he didn't because on account of he said he had a notion to save 'em to stuff mattresses'like they used to do .n the old days and he evert offered me a job at time and half if I'd do the stuffing and which I wouldn't and so the leaves kept on blowing, from so and so's yard and then back again and finally the wind changed to the south and blew 'em all off my sidewalk so I didn't have to sweep 'em off. Ain't nature and high winds funny things? I can't figure 'em out. I've joined the K. C. bowling team and as soon as I get my second wind I'm going to take to winning the games in the league and show some of the grandpas on the grandpas team that I'm another grandpa who can bowl a classic game if I have to bowl 310 to do it and I lost my bowling shoes and so Mike Loss has a pair in his car and he's going to drive in when I bowl so I can borrow 'em, and Ed Thaves says' he can beat me and which he can't and there are a lot of Swedes in the league this year and I can beat 'em and also some of the Danes, so to speak, because on account of I'm a good bowler and it's not the kind of bowling where you have to pull a cork either. I'd sure like to bowl a match with the ladies' team, gosh I like 'em, some more 'n others, but I like 'em, but the Mrs. says I should be my age and confine my match bowling to men teams. Darn. Tom Carmody, one of the big shots at Whittemore, came into this office the other day and he was singing a Dane number and I asked him how come he could breeze in here like that and he said this was a free country and the boys were fighting to keep it free and he was a free man and would come in here and attune our sensitive and touchy harmony nerves to his Dane singing whenever he wanted to and then he said that Chris Anderson and Dr. McCreery and Clem Cavanaugh, Whittemore Danes, had decided that I wasn't such a big Dane after all and maybe I ain't. But when they sing forgangen nat vor sultne kat they've got to get the right twang to it or John Uhlenhake won't sing with 'em and neither will Henry Bonnstetter and they're both good singers, though John admits he can't sing for sour apples. I've decided to keep my straw hat and wear it this winter because on account of Milton Norton says he can furnish all kinds of insulation material and I can make a winter hat out of my sailor and Tom Stevens says Milt's insulation may be good for a hen house but it ain't so good for straw hats but I've a notion to try it anyway. And Ed Wolcott's got an idea, he says to soak your straw hat in tar for a week and then hang it up to dry and after the hat's dry there ain't no winter wind can permeate any man's dandruff. Now there's an idea. Winter is here and I have proof of it. The police force has discarded their light uniforms and are now wearing the winter blue and red undies, and Theo. Herbst has bought a cap and is wearing it every day. What more proof of cold weather could anyone ask for? Another indication of the approach of winter is the filling of car radiators with anti-freeze now going on and some of the cars parked along the main drag sometimes smell like they'd been on a bender, and that's a sign there's alcohol on their menu. What puzzles me is where do the owners get alcohol for drinks for the radiators? I thought all alcohol was going into synthetic rubber. But I guess it's just one of my dumb angles, so to speak. —o— And what dp you know, at the Rotarian meeting Monday noon I led in a song and I picked "School Days" because on account of I knew that best and the Rotarians all sat back and did they ever revert to their early boyhood and open up on that song and those birds can really sing that one better 'n "Roll Out the Barrel," and I discovered some exceptional vocal talent which has been in hiding these niany years, there was Jim Pool, a melodious baritone voice, John Haggard with a swell first bass, and I was astounded at Bill McDonald and W. C. Dewel, they sat together and harmonized sweetly, mellifluously, and Harold Gilmore has the most soothing and tuneful of voices though I don't know the pitch it was in and Fritz Pierce and Or. Kennefick are no slouches in a vocal group and I can understand how they can quack a duck to its death, and "Bo" Bohannon carried a tenor second only to the once famed and late Caruso, and I was disappointed that Wade Sullivan didn't get there in time because on account of he's a warbler of note, just what note I don't just know, and Mart Weaver could hold his own in any quartet with a quality vocal chord, and O. F. Peterson, newcomer and new member is a credit to the vocal group and sings swell in English, and Brail Wright has as sweet a tone as I can get out of my fiddle and that's going some and Dennis Pratt said if I ever brought my fiddle to Retary he was going home because on account of he didn't want his stomach to turn at the meetings and Fred Timm is a swell singer except for his voice and Leon Merritt would sing tenor but he says he can't get high enough and I could go, on and on about the glorious and exceptional vocal talent in the Rotary Club and I wonder that all of 'em don't have part in some church choir and now the Kiwanis have offered me a lot of bucks per meeting to lead them since Dr. Schaap has been called to the service but I fear for their "boos." Up north in Springfield and Hebron townships the Red Undie Club is gaining in membership because on account of up there it gets really cold during the winter and Arthur Brand has been elected president and Earl Reed, vice president, With Swen Larson secretary and the two Millers, John and Walter, treasurer because on account of it takes two to count all the money and the door-keeper is Helmer Hauge with C. O. Hfll- vorson inner guard and Lars Egesdahl outer guard and the board of directors are D. E. Wilson, Henry Goeke, Otto Engel- arts, Sam Boettcher and Rudolph Baum. In the meantime down south in the LuVerne neighborhood the club isn't doing so well because on account of it's a lot warmer down therein the winter time and folks can go around in their shirt sleeves and don't need red undies for warmth. At that there are several of the men working to organize ,,a club, • the two Freilingers, J. B. and Mike, and the two Kohlhaas, C. K. and K. L., the two Bormanns, John P. and Peter, the two Beckers, Rap and James and the two Gron- bachs, Elmer and Lawrence. These men hope to organzie in that neck of the woods and maybe they can arrange to get a lighter weight red undies than those worn in the north part of the county. At any rate it is hoped to have every township organ-" ize a Red Undie Club before the first of the year. Kossuth, being a northern county in this state stands to outnumber in Red Undy membership any other county in the state. Upper Des Moines Gets Better Yearly A letter from our old friend, Conrad Rabe, who has for years lived in Minneapolis, enclosed his subscription for another year. Mr. Rabe said: "I am well and bt^sy; am employed at the Masbnic Temple since last October; walk to work every day, 15 blocks, and find it good exercise. The U. D. M. is'getting better every year, with news from all over the world. 1 1 was down in Missouri in early; July, and their crops were away' behind Iowa crops, as they had too much rain the fore part of the summer. Iowa corn looked real good at that time and I know it is sure good now. Hoping this finds you all well .and with best wishes to all old Kossuth county friends .—Conrad Rabe."

Overweight Oil makes Cars Older-Fast A Light grade of oil can make good, with your engine Winter OIL-PLATED You can change to an OIL-PLATED engine by changing to any grade of Conoco NM motor oil—from lightest to heaviest—and you can change to any grade of Conoco N^i at the same popular price. But the lightest possible grade of oil that's fit for the Winter change your car needs now will help to save your battery—your gasoline—your engine. The more the oil is overweight the greater the wear, and when that makes you try still heavier oil you get still more wear—still more oil and gasoline consumption—worse and worse and worse. Short-circuit this ruinous process by having yowr engine OIL-PLATED. OIL-PLATING is distinct from the familiar liquid type of high-strength oil film also provided by Conoco Ntt« oil. Both oil film and OIL-PLATING are paired against wear every mile. Every time your engine rests, however, any liquid film drains down to the crankca.se. But OIL-PLATINQ doesn't all drain down. It tends to stay wherever attached by Conoco N"» oil's "magnet-like" action—achieved synthetically. Often now; you don't use your car for days. Yet when you start, the OIL-PLATED surfaces are still ready-lubricated,. ."faster than instantly," That's how the former fierce wear of cpid, starting is reduced by OIL-PLATING your engine. All other wear, too, meets jts» match in yovur OIL-PLATED engine. Change at Your Mileage Merchant's Conoco statgbn—tp4ay. He knows the lightest grade of N"» for you.
