AIR PROGRESS NOT PENALIZED The surge of resentment from some quarters over President Roosevelt's action Jn canceling- all existing air teall contracts, is probably based on a sincere fear that *ir development will be Impeded in some cases, and as grounds for political fodder to others. But to abstain from the political angle and talk common sense, Is the air progress of the country penal- ised* We think not. The Estherville News takes the view that the can- u 3t iS, n f, c ^ l3 ' 8 ? t8 wm throw men out of *«*• i i* *£ hlnd r thc ** transport companies and airplane development. The bin which will provide for the airmail makes the express provision that "the current appropriation for ah- mall subsidies Is to be turned over to the army to finance Its work of flying the mail." That would mean that the army will get the benefit of the money; and we can feel pretty certain that every last penny will be naed where It should be used. The air transport companies will be hindered; but aviation as a whole will not be, because where the air transport companies have less money, the army has more. As for men being put out of work, It may be that * few pilots will be grounded, but the army planes will require overhauling and it is safe to say thatt Just about as many men will be employed as before. But the big thing is this. When there has been evidence of fraud, graft and corruption In the granting of *lr mail subsidies, something should be done. And Resident Roosevelt has gone right to the seat of the trouble. He has taken away from the air transport companies an Illegally procured plum, and he made no mistake. And then there was Cliff Frane and one other Scotchman who saved green fees by playing golf last Thursday . . . something unusual for the 15th of February. Among other things (which reminds us that this column has a serious vein this week), does It not appear that Algona is experiencing a distinct shortage of homes . . . from talk with real estate men, we find that places to live are at a premium . . . why not erect that little bungalow, plant those rose bushes and start a garden, such as you have always wanted. The Tltonka Topic, edited by Lee O. Wolfe, contained a paragraph of misinformation last week, under the column entitled "Did You Know That—". For Heaven's Sake Leo, where did you get that "flirting with a widow at Clear Lake" stuff. We're surprised at you. And that goes for not only Clear Lake, but any other point, too. If we didn't think we were sort of friends, we'd suspect a deliberate libel. TOO FREE WITH PAROLES The case of the trio of men Jailed In connection with the Robinson case Is Interesting, especially when one looks at their criminal record over a period of years. The men themselves may have had nothing to do with the case, but here they are at large, roaming around the country with no visible means of support, and with every indication that they are anything but useful citizens. Reynolds was flrst arrested In 1908. After that he was jailed nine more times. On a charge of perjury toe was sentenced to 10 years at Anateoaa in 1016. Yet to 1923 he was out again, and again In a scrape. Davis was given a five year term In 1931, and later In that same year was arrested again for the same offense, Indicating that he must have been paroled within a year. Neither man has a record of major crime, yet they have been repeated offenders, and paroles have been granted them shortly after imprlsonlme&t. It might benefit everyone If men of this calibre had a real lid clamped down on them. Their continual release has meant nothing but repeated arrests and trouble. It gives one a pretty comfortable feeling, these days, to sit back and smoke a pipe, while reading about the warfare and civil conflict brewing all over Europe. Nads, Monarchists, Fascists, Socialists, Communists and a dozen or two other parties make their bids for power. Blood Is spilled; the country itself is torn apart. Beautiful new buildings are destroyed in countries that can. 111 afford to lose property. By comparison, It looks as though the good old XT. S. A. had the safest and sanest method of governing, along with Great Britain, in the world. Klrby Page, editor of "World Tomorrow," has stated that America will eventually become a Socialist notion. Well, If It does, it ts pretty safe to say that It will be done gradually and without any great turmoil or bloodshed. Ballots always bring better results than bayonets. • • • Music lovers who enjoyed "The Fortune Teller" commented frequently on the fact that Mart McCall's playing of the harp in the orchestra was a welcome sight . . . which brings to mind the fact that Charles Bhtnn- way and his son, Karl, both employees of this office, have been spending a few hours a week on the construction of home-made harps. The Shumways have two beautiful Instruments, equipped with all the necessary gadgets (pardon us, we know nothing about harps) which they have made themselves, and better than that they produce the sweet music that only harps can produce. Well, they sort of have a flying start on the rest of us. Think what a task It will be, learning to play the harp even under St. Peter's guidance,, Simile: True as a hotel register. , • • • STORY OF THE WEEK It seems that the young parents of a ourly-halred little boy were returning from the movies. They had left the child with a maiden of the community. As they went In the front door, they heard someone scramble out the back, and the girl, all aflutter, told them that Just before they came In, a man had appeared at the back door, and forced his way Into the house. The father, with thoughts of kidnappers racing through his mind, sprinted lor the back door, and In a few seconds overhauled the culprit. But, Instead of the mysterious man he found a young fellow, who stammered for a minute, and then said he had Just called to ask the young lady "about some subjects."

Miss Stahl will be remembered by many who took their chemistry work under her direction. «he left here in 1934. The report also stated that several pupils were burned in the explosion, although none of the Injuries were said to be serious. 2 TITONKA COUPLES SPEAK VOWS IN CEREMONIES OF PAST WEEK The Man About Town Says Nature presented a huge valentine to Algona in 1934 when she permitted the pening of doors on the business houses ike it was a day In mid-summer. Long will that memorable day be remembered. OTHER EDITORS NICELY MESSED UP It Is the easiest thing m the world to criticize the action of other people; but Judging by the amount of criticism the legislature Is getting, there may be some grounds for it, although locally there has been little criticism of the actions of the two Kossuth men In that body. But with regard to the liquor bill, what In the world Is the legislature trying to do. It seems difficult beyond words for the Des Molnes assembly to figure the thing ouU The house vote aye; the senate votes nay. Then each reverses its decision, and puts in new paragraphs, striking out old. Why In blazes don't the boys Just sit down, friendly like, and figure out a safe and sane method of handling liquor, giving due consideration to the Tact that the average man is not a drunkard ajid is able to handle himself accordingly, and then pass the dog gone thing. FOR "THE BEST MAN" One of the most evident things about the voting in the coming election seems to be the fact that many voters Intend to vote "for the best man." Each, of course, has his own ideas of who the beat man is, but there is a noticeable trend toward independent thought Jn county politics. After all, county officers have no national issues to settle; they are important members on the board of directors of a half million dollar corporation. And the voters who cast their ballots for men they feel are best qualified to handle that half million dollars, are doing so lii their own good interests. Hurrah for Attorney General Cummlngs. He has decided that If cities like St. Paul, Minneapolis, Des Molnes and Kansas City cannot clean up their own dirty underwear, the federal officers will do It for them. We hope you throw out a dragnet that gets every thug, crook kidnapper, holdup man and dope peddler in the country! and then sees to It that they are all properly plowed under. That is one case of overproduction that America is united In. desiring to do away with. Eulogy to a "Love Feast''. Bwea City Herald: Like the Roman* returned from licking the barbarians, militant and tchk&pbant Kossuth county Democracy -will assemble atTAlgona next Tuesday night in a love feast with the victory theme introduced this time, Instead of unrequited hope as in times past. Auras of Bacchnalia and Epicura will hover over the banquet table. Quite properly, great clouds of Incense Will arise to Franklin D. Roosevelt, the modern St. George who slew the dragon; good old Franklin D., a composite of St. Augustine and Santa Claus In the eyes of the adoring democrats, long kept, away from the fleshpots by a rapacious republican crew. There will be a galaxy of orators, speakers and the common or garden variety of windbag. Topping the bill wttl be Governor Clyde L. Herring. State Treasurer Leo Wesman and Mrs. Alex Miller, secrteary of state are expected, along with other party dukes, satraps, gal politicians and God knows who else. All friends of the Great Cause—the cause of Elmer, the Forgotten Man—are Invited to attend. Tickets are six bita apiece, and locally may be bought of any of the candidates for the Swea City post office, as well as the old party war horses such as George Butterfleld, Tony Hundeby and Doc Whitlow, whose old neighbors and friends, regardless of political differences, Join with them wholeheartedly, without a trace of animosity, in their great hour of triumph. Word Is being passed along the sale of ducats will end Saturday night. While the event will be called blessed whenever two or more gather in the name of Thomas Jefferson in Algona rathskfcllers, speakeasies and soda Joints next Tuesday night, nevertheless If you wish to enter the tent of rejoicing, you must not wait beyond Saturday night to buy your ticket. • • • Opera Called "Truly Magnificent" Whittemore Champion: The opera, "The Fortune Teller" presented at the Algona high school Monday and Tuesday was one of the finest productions of its kind ever produced in Kossuth county, say those who have attended productions of this nature in the past. Beautiful costumes, erotic music, soloists of rare ability, and character actors who filled their parts like veterans, blended together in a harmony only achieved by diligent practice, and the seletcion of appropriate talent. Donald Hutch Ins and Opal Morrison were magnificent in their parts, as were Miss Evelyn Bode, former Whittemore teacher, D. Wayne Collins, Edward Genrich, Clair Schaap, Dwight Andrews and the many others who made up the cast. It was truly a gorgeoua spectacle and it, is hoped that more entertainment of this kind will be featured in Kossuth in years to come. The curfew fa coming to for some good.

A. H. Bonnstetter) State House. February 16th, 1934. _ Illness in my family made it necessary lor me to go home last week end, hence, no letter for last, week's papers. At this writing things are not clearing up aa fast as many members desire in order to bring this session to an end. We have some necessary legislation pending In the House. However, it is impossible to proceed intelligently until the Senate acts on measures that relate to the above mentioned k-Kislation. TJieie is a great demand to amend the present beer law but the House is waiting to see just what will hapi>en to the liquor bill in the Senate before attempts will be made to adjust the present provisions. Tfana Bureau Bill Tabled House file No. 180, the bill which endeavored to separate the extension service from the Faxm Bureau was laid on the taWe Tuetday, February Bin, by » vote of 57 to 47. The State House lias bten decorated with lobbyists who vigorusly opposed the measure aud the propaganda put out from the office of the state organization together *iUi false statements made on the floor, no doubt are responsible for the bill's defeat. Concerning false statements made In this matter, a luemovr took the floor and stated that the officials at Iowa State Agricultural College were oppo&ed to the separation of the extension department and Bureau. He further stated that he was authorized to speak for President Hughes, George Godfrey and others. Furthermore, that, he had consulted with the above mentioned gentlemen the previous afternoon and that they urged defeat of the measure. Then a member who sells oil for the organization moved the bill be laid on the table. This motion is onte debatable Consequently the sponsors of the House Pile No. 180 were not given an opportunity to prove that the statements made by the first member were false and no doubt this influenced tie final result. The reason the effort was made at this time to change- the present setup was because the officials in charge of the Corn-Hog Reduction program fear<-d onjosition to the proposition for the reason that this work was administered bv the extension department of Iowa state College and the Vl'ng prevailed that im affiliation with the frarm Bureau wuuld arouse antagonism io the proffrain. The reaction over the on the action of the House de- trated that tile Corn-Horj corn- iii'ttte's fears were justified, and I fi-el that perhaus this is Uie reason for the recommendations by the committee «ot to have the county agents serve as permanent secretaries to county Corn-Hog Reduction organizations ^ No 17 a bil] vances the sheriff's mileage to 7 Vi cents per mile passed the House by a vote of 67 to 33. The House, however, amended the bill eo that tie 7>/4 cent rate can only be applied within the county. All mileage outside the county remains at 5 cents per mile. This mileage proposition has been a hobby of mine for a number of years. All Information I can gather on the subject indicates that 5 cents is ample to take care of all expenses in the operation and investment of a car. Cars operated by ali state departments average less than 3 cents per mile. Cara operated by insurance companies, pack- Ing companies and other commercial enterprises average slightly over 3 cents per mile, and anyone can go down to the city of Des Moines and rent cars in first class condition for 5 cents per mile. Surely these garages are making a profit or they would not continue to do business. I believe the members opposing the increase had all the arguments but the members in eymptahy with the Increase had the votes. Consequently the sheriffs now have the advantage over other officials who receive mileage. The big •eaaoa why the measure was enacted into a law was because the sheriffs were nere in person and many representatives had one or more of them parked at their sides when the vote was recorded. •tam, tad then wait xabuksd With laughter by his family. Charlie Nlcoiln will be an interested fan at the Call Theatre Saturday. He has word that the coming show has a scene in it entitled "C. W. Nlcoulin, Lands." The old dnst cloth went to work at the Mart McCall home and uncovered the harp which made Mart famous in this territory. It has been idle for years but Mart's agile fingers can still pick away with gracefulness. After the first day of practice he nursed some sore fingers. Eva Brown and Mr. Davis at the telegraph office are enjoying the fresh air mjjch against their wfjl. A rat or some other rodent knowing the end was near took a grudge against theJ key artists and gave up the ghost underneath their floor. From present indications he must have been a whopper and fed well at Uie table of Cliff Frane. • * • While vUltinf in Waterloo the little three year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Wendell French had the occasion to put a coin in a machine to get a candy- bar.

Kay Rctcbrll was given a couple of carp to feed his chickens when his wife Harriet, intervened in behalf of the carp. Kay took the time to explain what nice black bass they were and eventually they were turned into a dinner.

When the right party comes along with whom the attendants think they can have some fun they press the button and the visitor gets a shock.

Andy Anderson, who likes to relate his ftihlng experiences, tells about his best meal. It was served by Indians and consisted of well-cooked dog meat. Andy says he never accepted a return engagement. Away back abort 1913 one recalls an essay written concerning the pavement on State street. Miss Gladys Smith of Webster City was the high school English teacher. She took the writer to task for referring to or comparing the narrow pavement with a cow lane. Wouldn't it be great to let her know that the cow lane is going U) be removed? What a foresight!
