PAGE TWO KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALGONA, IOWA Hodgepodge Webster—A stew of various ingredients; a mixture. Swea Cityans, Paetzes, in Car Crash Hodgepodge made the headlines In Wednesday evening's Des Moines Tribune, but it had nothing to do with this pillar of meander- Ing thoughts of an otherwise unoccupied brain. The headline said: "Hodge-Podge Farm Bill Predicted In House." Which should cause the farmers in Kossuth, who know •what a Hodgepodge can be, no end of worry. And it's one word—not hyphenated. * * * * Memories of a day long long past Is roused by the name of the director of the Institute of Women's Professional Relations (whatever that is) who answers to the handle —(Mrs. Chase Going Woodhouse. Never having been whaled in a woodshed, there are still tales of the neatness which with the problem of child educatoin could be accomplished by a visit there under proper circumstances. And it adds to the collection of silly names for otherwise nice people. * * * * Young couple wed a couple of dozen moons ago sitting at the soda fountain, evidently as much in love as ever. Disproves the empty headed blatherings of columnists to whom marriage is a momentous launching of a foregone failure. * * * * As usual women's hats seem Sillier than the last outbreak. Sorao resemble a turban — others look like an upside-down cake., and others remind of those half-clad dark-brown huskies in the rotogravure sections who carry water in head-pitchers. It's o. k. with the average man, however, because tho face beneath is what counts. * * tt * >'<nv tlilit tho football season is over those who were glued to radios Saturday afternoons to moan or gloat can return to normal afternoon pursuits. ! Twenty years is not a long time. I yet it lias marked a period of prog- 1 ress in living that is remarkable. Sunday morning, while a fire was in progress at .Mason City, a "play-' by-play" account was heard in Algona at tho .same instant the words were spoken in Mason t'ity. Saturday afternoon ihe final gun ending the game in many a football stadium was heard by fans all over the country at the .same instant ihe crowd in the stand heatil il. N'oi so long aw radio was unknown, mid Sunday papers had to be de- ponded upon for such news, even UK l hey are today tor the complete study of games. T\venty years ago there were no self-starters for ears, there was no country paving, no talking pictures, no rotogravure seel ions, no picture magazines, no neon signs, no electric accessories to which we have been accustomed. Aulomo- mobiles were not enclosed and still clung to the buggy style. There we.ro a fe\v box-kite style airplanes, unusual and used only for si tint flighls. There \Viis a depression that staried in 1!)1!> and l!i:!o, but that depression was staved off by i be influx of manufactured new products such as ibe radio and automobile. Thousands of idle were absorbed rapidly in these new industries. * :;: jj: 4, As (lie iniirlict became filled wiih the new products to ibe point of saturation ihe depression that had bung fire .since the 'id's got under way. II is ol'ten heard that men should replace machines, and thus ^ive •work to l he men. It is looked upon as a new idea by many but il is as old as the country and older. A hundred years ago the cotton gin •was Ibe. cause of riots. There was 11 temporary unemployment problem. The invention of the gin, however, gave employment to thousands in manufacturing mills, and people began to buy "store" clothes instead of wearing homespun. :;: :|: * * Invention of Ihe type-sotting machine throw hundreds of printers out of work, yet it made possible the present day newspaper employing thousands more than the biggest of old-time hand-set papers. * # * # All new inventions in labor or time-saving do cause u minor recession in the number of employed, but the'gain over a period of years "by virtue of the invention alone, is always of greater material perma- ne-nt benefit. * * * * Within a comparatively short epace of time some new invention will reach the manufacturing stage and thousands of people will be employed in its manufacture. We are only in the beginning of tho machine revolution which school histories state began some 150 years ago. It really began thousands of years ago with the invention of the wheel which enabled one. man to push or pull the load several would be needed to carry. * * * * There must be a period during which civilization catches up with the leaders. The mass of people does not have an opportunity for vision of the possibilities of the future. The minor trouble is ,so close to their eye that it hides the view of the major benefit just ahead. Who is there to say that even the meanest of Americans has not been bcuefitted by invention and progress which once was soundly cursed as a detriment? It is a rare home that does not now have a radio, electric lights, or a few of the thousands of one-time luxuries of not so long ago, and 20 years saw the change! * * * * "IVo will continue to go ahead in the future, unless we mortals interfere and meddle too much with nature's laws. Something new will take the place of the old and idle hands will find work so long as there is ambition and a reward for initiative and work. Only unnatural laws can stop the tide, as j lias happened in Germany and Russia, but history proves these stoppages short-lived. —D. E. D.
