Bombing of Hamburg After the ruthless bombing of London, Coventry and other English cities by the Germans during the first year of the war it is with sincere satisfaction we hear of the almost complete destruction of Hamburg and the bombing of many German industrial cities by the allies. The Germans have been having a bitter taste of their own medicine and so far as we are concerned we "hope they choke". Some time ago Hitler asked the Pope to intercede to stop the bombing of German cities. Now, it seems that the German civilians are placing the blame for the ruthless bombing of their cities where it plainly belongs. The Webster City Freeman printed the following story last week which shows that the people of Germany now realize their one-time hero, the fat Herman Goering, head of the German air force, is a hero no longer. Below we clip the story o£ a Swedish nurse who was present at Hamburg at the time it was destroyed- Herman Goering the No. 8 Nazi, who boasted that Germany would never be bombed, was hissed by his own angry people after the Allied aerial destruction of Hamburg, the Nazis' second city, reports eye-witness Catherine Svedberg, attractive Swedish nurse in an exclusive article in December's True Magazine. Miss Svedberg, now in Canada was in the German metropolis when British and American bomber fleets reduced it to rubble and is the first person who saw the rum of the city to reach America. After more than 75% of the city had been devastated Goering, the man who said U couldnt happen, made an unscheduled daily told of the killing of thousands of "Germans. The German loss at the battle of Stalln-i grad alone in killed and captured was estimated at three million men arid the story Is the same along the entire Russian battle line. The reports ot the killings were perhaps exaggerated but undoubtedly were several million of Germany's best troops, after dividing the reported losses by two It is plainly an effort of the military men to keep the people of the allied nations on their toes so that there will be no let-up In the buying of bonds and furnishing an endless supply of troops and ammunition. It certainly would be discouraging if it were true after four years of fighting the Germans were gaining strength every day. We all remember that the judgment of the best military minds at the time Hitler attacked Russia was that the Germans would capture Moscow within six weeks, and it has left us with the thought that their judgment is not infalliable Still we have noted that sometimes the harder the fight against evil things is carried on the stronger the evil seems to grow. Notably the battle of the W. C. T. U. against liquor and cigarettes and other evils only made the use of tobacco and liquor more prevalent. Only a few years ago a woman or girl seen smoking a "coffin nail condemned -them as being immoral. Now notwithstanding all of the efforts of the good people to stop cigarette smoking, it is the common practice among women, at least of the younger generation, and liquor is served at social functions attended by the highest society as well as at most clubs whose membership is made up of the leading men and women of our day But notwithstanding all this we find it hard to believe that the long and bloody years of the present war have only served to strengthen the military strength of Germany; It seems silly on the face of it and we think that the military experts had better go over their figures again. If it is true that when a German is killed there are two new soldiers ready to take his place it would seem that the best thing to be done would be to stop the killings. Of course this is all poppycock. The truth of the matter is that Ger- imany is on her last legs and it is a fifty-fifty bet and even better that the Russian army will be in Berlin in a few months with the vaunted strength of the German army prostrate and begging for mercy. This may be wishful thinking but it is what most of the boys on the sidelines have lately come to believe, and in the meantime the war effort should be speeded up to hasten the day. bv REESE A LiHft e f Thii » A Littlt of That Net Much of Anything I've been hft i»Py *"« past ' , ---------- _ „„ H wv»»ii»ti IIdV~ ng been approved by Algona cit- zens and it was in a local cafe the other night that I was hav- ng a glass of milk and some toast and I was dunking the toast and Dr. and Mrs. Andrews and Mr. and Mrs. L.

"I stood within thirty feet of the fat bemedalled Goering that afternoon when he stopped, in the midst of the ruins, to speak to the people", says Miss Svedberg. "I saw fear in his face. It was not a warm day but sweat trickled from his forehead. "He mounted a pile of rubble, raised his hands for silence, then began: 'Loyal citizens of Hamburg, I stand before you in the midst of the ruins of your great city. I have come to tell you that this uncivilized destruction cannot go on. It will be stopped ' " 'With what?' a voice in the' crowd rudely interrupted. itv ln J M With v, wh ., at do you su PP°se to stop it.' another echoed, and still another chimed m, We've got you to thank for this.' "A riot was threatening", Miss Svedberg says, "when the Gestapo stepped in and took over." The Freeman-Journal wonders if some of •Goerings listeners didn't call his attention to the fact that Germany started the bombing of cities, the first great "uncivilized destruction" being launched against Poland at a time when Poland was not prepared to resist with any real defense Not until several years after Warsaw and other Polish cities were laid in ruins did Germany experience the destruction of some of her cities, which she had invited. She is now getting more than she bargained for and is whining like a whipped pup when forced to take large doses of her own medicine. Germans Gaining Strength? It is now claimed by some of the hiRh ranking army experts at Washington that the German military strength is greater today than it was in 1939. Of course if that is true after four years of war it bodes ill for the future. That is saying, that the harder the allies fight and the more German soldiers they kill the greater becomes the strength of the German army. Of course this is palpably untrue, or so it would seem to us fellows on the sidelines. For the past two years the reports from the Russian front have The Federal Judge Appointment Now it is given out by some of the political writers at Des Moines that the appointment of a federal judge to succeed Judge Scott will not b» made until about the first of the year. It is said that the Democrats are engaged in an intra party tussle over the appointment. Paul Bumbarger, Iowa daily press writer, who is a republican, says that at present it seems that one of four men will be appointed and that the men are Federal District Attorney T. E. Diamond of Sheldon, District Judge Henry N. Graven of Mason City, former Iowa Supreme Court judges, Richard F. Mitchell of Fort Dodge and Leon W. Powers of Denison. Some doubts have been cast in the papers as to the possibility of the appointment of Diamond and Craven, but it seems they are officially still being considered. Mitchell tfs well as his cousin John both of Fort Dodge, have been listed as possible recipients of the high honor. Powers is a former state representative and at one time assistant attorney general of Iowa. All are rated highly in legal circles. Attorney L'uke Linnan of Algona, at one time was one of the three named as likely to receive the appointment and is perhaps yet being favorably considered. Senator Gillette's endorsement is considered all that is necessary for the appointment. snow came and there they were but Ralph insisted that had he only rode over there on a bicycle he wouldn't have h? rf »«« *—••• ble getting back to cause on account of he can reall ride a bicycle anywhere, sno\ just soar over 'em so :c speak.

In one case we personally know that a paper salesman on his visit to Algona found that he had to go up to Burt tc find a room. Perhaps conditions are now better, as H. L. Leake, business representative of Laborers Local No. 552, Algona, said in the Mason City Gazette last week that there have been rooms available every night since he came here Oct. 7. The only time they were scarce was when the pheasant hunters were here. However he said that there had been a shortage of apartments. He said that the Algona Chamber of Commerce had handled the situation and "has done a very good job. It is the best job of housing workers I have heard of." It seems to us that now there are so many of the buildings up at the camp that many of the workmen might find sleeping quarters at the camp in a pinch £ now . what Ira did, and maybe he didnt have any socks on in the first place.

From the Files Opinions of Other Editors Humboldt Gazette: Editor Bill Miller of the Livermore Gazette, calls 'em "The Damphool Blackouts". They were. There was never any good reason why this section of the country should practice blackouts. That fool talk about the Jap and German planes coming from the north or south, and that our women would go back to spinning and weaving as they did 150 years ago, was all vapor from the over-heated brains clown Washingon way. It was a portion of the system of making the people war conscious. Economy Demanded at Capital Decorah Journal The utter and absolute waste of manpower and extravagance of the administration in carrying on the war has caused within the Democratic party a demand for more economy. Such men as U. S. Senators Byrd and Glass of Virginia, both Democrats, could have piloted a safe and sane course. The preaident will find a real fight on his hands in supporting subsidies. Surely the battle against inflation is important if the government financial structure is not to be wrecked. But the inflation is caused by the excessively outrageous wages paid in some war plants for some workers. Excessive spending power makes purchases of merchandise too easy for these people with twice as much money in their pockets than ever before. Instead of putting too much spending money in the hands of workers to give them greater spending power and bringing about inflation, a program that would have frozen wages and prices at the time of Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941 would have eliminated much of this trouble and stopped inflation. Canada had given the United States a program that it could have followed with real benefits. check, double-check and examine these funds Then government checks have to be sent out to creameries. Next the creameries have to figure out 5-cent subsidy payments. These have to be added to the checks of the farmer-patrons.

While unpacking the fish that he had caught, Bill Becker found samples of gold along the sand etc, that were in the fish box, 'and believing he had practically struck a gold mine, he had the stones examined by Paul Hamil. Paul told Bill that his fish must have had a bad case of gall stones, for the gold turned out not to be gold after all. Well, it ! was a good fish yarn, anyway.

A meeting is to be held next week at 4 bells for election of officers. The notion i started when Claude Sampson breezed into Barry's with a nice big new cigar and asked Bill did he want a puff? Now that there is a terrible shortage of cigars and some of the boys can't always get a cigar when they want one, the club will be organized so that they may puff off the cigar of some other member, so to speak. For that reason the Puff Club charter membership already consists of Dr. R. J. Thissen, C. B. Murtagh, Ken Roney, Dr. Cretzmeycr, Hugh Colwell, D. H.
