THE NEW LIQUOR STORE AJg-ona is soon to have a state liquor store opened and many temperance p;op!e regard it as a calamity and a blot on the fair name of our city. This might indeed be true if there had been no sale of liquor in Algona during the years of prohibition. During the years of so-called prohibition there was perhaps more liquor sold in Algona and vicinity than there will be with a legal liquor store established here and the sales made under the careful supervision of a man of high character who will not make a cent from an increased sale of liquor. During the years of prohibition the sale of liquor here as well as elsewhere was almost, entirely in the hands of the lowest, element of the community and young boys and girls were solicited to buy raw alcohol. Every town in the state of Iowa was infested with bootleggers. •who made it their business to solicit from high school students and young folks generally. Only a few years ago. Fras-rr Hunt, a noted New York writer came to Algona A>r a day or two and wrote a magazine article sizing up the prohibition situation in Algona. He said that people here were disgusted with the way that prohibition •worked and w-:re anxious for repeal. This raised a storm of disapproval from the good folks of the town and he •was brrated and accused of being a propagandist, sent out. Oy the wet east to put. a false complexion on the liquor situation in the west. All well Informed Algona people knew that, the famous eastern writer had given a correct picture of conditions in Algona. It afterwards transpired that Alpona and Kossuth county was indeed disgusted with prohibition, or we should say the way prohibition worked, and by their votes discredited it at th? first opportunity. We believe that with a carefully supervised state liquor store, such as we will undoubtedly have, the cau«? of temperance will be advanced in this community. With no prollt in the liquor sold no cne •will be urged to buy. and no person under age will be allowed to buy liquor. There will be no solicitation of school children and a license must be obtained showing all buyers to be of good character before they will be allowed to buy liquor. Under the Iowa law the enormous profits going to the Al Capones and other bootleg kings will be done away with and any profit from the sale of liquor wil] accrue to the state for the relief of the overburdened taxpayers. Instead of rot gut and poisonous whiskey and alcohol, the purest liquor only will be sold, all carefully Inspected by the government. We all know what prohibition has done to the boys and girls of this country, and we are hoping that the new deal will prove to be a step in the right direction in handling the evils of strong drink. CITY IMPROVEMENT Algona. viewed from a distance of several miles as one approaches jhe city, has an impressive took. But that first impression certainly must be spoiled for a stranger entering from the north, when, after approaching the bridge over the Upper Dw Moines rt*er. he fiixis that what he at first may fcare taken to be a beacon fire of welcome. Is nothing more than Use city damp burning:. There may be reasons for having Us« city damp •where It \a. it certainly is handy, but from a civic point of view It Is a most unwholesome eyesore, aad is located at a point which because of the river, and cement bridg» over It on highway 169, might very easily be one of the prettiest aectlons of the city. Can there be no other place u> dump city garbhge and burn refuse than at its nre- *ent point? *^ A great deal of comment was heard recently relative to the late opening date of the swimming pool. WlUi warm weather here for almost the entire month of May, ibe first of June was a pretty late date to open the pool. Had some small child been drowned in the fresh water pond, or the river, the question would have been tragically and forcefully pushed into the foreground No such mishap occurred, and the late opening was poised over without undue clamor. A desire to swim, or get into the water, depends entirely on the weather If the weather warms up early or stays late, why not have the pool open. That is the purpose for which it It intended. A NEW HELMSMAN To Henry Fletcher. Gretncastle, Pa., falls the job of reorganize!,' and rebuilding the republican party machine for the fall election, and more important fo- the presidential campaign two years hence. Mr. Fletcher Jios a big job. The republican party needs more than a new helmsman. It needs a n-.-w political philosophy, despite MJIIH- of •the time-honored, on-repeated bromides. We rejer to the following: -The interests of lh-- people mun be safeguarded . . . we believe the constitutional i-.achine-y is adequate . . . people ar.- Mill able to govern themselves ... to tend to congress men who will keep the- laith.

Patterson. Dan Turner and Senator Patterson have always sailed the political seas in the same boat. Their war cry has l>een for a reduction of taxes by one route or another, and in fact, during Turner's one term as fTovornor it is claimed thflt there was a slight reduction of tnxcs. S-onator Pntterson hns always stood for a suite income tax. which it was supposed would be a replacement tax and lower the taxes on real estate. Somo people of course called that proposed state income tax only an added tax which would be collected for the purpose of having more money In the treasury to be approprittod for the benefit of our extravagant state institution?. \Voll. anyway, George hn.s stood bv it throusih thick and thin nnd Dan has aided and abe'tted him in his ritrht. The great democratic landslide swept Oov:rnor Turner out of office after only one term. Some papers cnll Turner a political demogogue and say that he made a poor governor, but on the whole we think that r>nn Turner made a good and honest governor nnd would have been endorsed by a second term had it not b~on for the big bad democratic landslide aforesaid. There was no nomination made for lieutenant governor at the late- primary as none of the four candidates obtained tho n<?oc<=sary thirty-five per cent of the vote. The nomination -will now bo made In the state convention and that body could do no better than nominate Senator George W. Patterson as lieutenant governor to go on the republican ticket in the fall with the name of his old pal, Dan Turner. odds and ends THOUGHXS "WHILE LOOKING AT THE CEILING Some ernin-rnt medico has said that all humans should take a week or so off -every year and spend It in brd—relaxing-, if you will—just lie and relax ... it 1.? not at all a ba-d idoa, and think of the possibilities. You would be able to acquire dozens of new beauty hints, a carload of recipes, and plenty of advice on how to care for the baby, from the radio programs during th-e day, programs which you probably did not know existed. It would matter not that the beauty hints were given by a dame with a face capable of stopping: a freight train, that (he recipes are dished out by a woman whose husband left, her because her biscuits broke all the plates In the house, cr that the advice about the baby was given by a mal? radio announcer with a feminie voice, it still might be worth while. And think of all the contests you could enter. You could write slogans by the hour, you could recommend everything from stove bolts to steam shovels, and if that dragged, perhaps you could catch up on your correspondence, and let Aunt Minnie back in Vermont know how much you appreciated that last Christmas present of a knit, sweater to wear under the knit sweater she sent the year before. Are you a ring twiddler? Do you fidget in your seat at the movies -when the comedians crack jokes you heard two years agro in another show? Well, if 50. you are smoking the wrong brand of cigarettes, according to a new series of advertisements. It Is a known fact that in some states the literacy is none too high, but in Iowa it is at its peak, and lor a cigarette company to open such a moronic series of advertisements is an insult to the Intelligence of Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public. And there's nothing wrong with the cigarettes in question, either. • • • One cf ovir spies uncovered a good joke on a rendering worfcs last we-:k. It seems they received a call to come arid p<?:. a dead hog. Th«y took down the directions and -wen; after the hog. The next day the same voice called ^hem over Uie phone and asked them wrwn tbey were corning to g?t the hoe. said the hog ttHy had called about wa^ still :here. and as dead as ever. A ?*«•*• York shoe store could hav* used Jimm*! Ne- Ti3e, last week. A wczaa purchased a pair of shoes, whici did rsoc flt so well.

The CThrc^go Century of Progress management has tried unsucoessfully to get tte new quintuplets, a man with two mechanical hands, and a girl who has been sleeping for two years to go on display this year <Sally is in Hollywood*.

Like all Gaul, the government of the United States may be said to be divided nto three parts, the Ins, the Outs, and :he Taxpayers. It is the function of the Ins to stay in; that of the Outs to get In; that of the Tax-payers to provide both contesting parties with the sinews of war. • V • It is not to be expected that a lot of disgruntled Outs will observe all rules ethics and good sportsmanship, to say nothing of those of civilized war- are, in their fight to oust the Ins. And hould they finally prevail and become ns, while the former Ins become Outs, t is not conceivable that the ex-Ins will proceed to sit meekly on the slde- ines and applaud the plays of their successful rivals. • • • The more belligerent Outs of four years ago indulged in what was known as a "smear-Hoover" campaign. Possibly some of the mud thrown lodged on our then presidents outer garments, which were promptly cleaned to the satisfaction ot all except the choleric Outs without difficulty, and it is to be doubted if the "smearing" process contributed an iota to Mr. Hoover's defeat in November, 1932. Not to the slightest degree ia it surprising that at the present moment a bunch of irascible Outs are indulging in a "belUtle-Roose- velt" campaign. No one, outside of the would-be Ins and the get-in-at- any-costers, cares a tinker's dam what "Jim" Watson, Simeon Pess, Ogden Mills and other G. O. P. Old Guard- era think or say about Franklin Roosevelt and the so-called administration policies. Left stranded on a desert island it is only natural that th«y should curse aa pirates those who interned them there. We have standards by which to judge Rooseveltism other than those of Waisonisticaciun, Fess- iastics, Millsatorium and Oldguardlsim- ism. However, let's look the thing In the lace and admit, that "it's something else again" when such a democrat as Senator Harry F. Byrd of Virginia, openly revolts against the policities of a democratic administration, and when Owen D. Young suggests that the "brain trust's" activities be confined to research rather than to application. Senator Byrd, in the fight he is leading at<aiast :he extraordinary extension of th« AAA contained in the bill now on the bcnate calendar, urged by Secretary Wallace and iupported by the president, addressed his colkagues in part as follows: "This bill is better suited for the soviet government, of Russia than for the democracy of Americu, where -we still have, at kast in theory, a written constitution." He regards it as bestowing power on a bureau chief "lo confiscate tht property of citizens without due process of law." "I have sympathy with Mr. Wallace," .says Senator Byrd, "but. I will never agree to regiment the farmers of America without their con- stn:, and by arbitrary power. We do not want a Hitler of American agriculture. Neither do we want an army of governmental parasites traveling around the country at public expense to t*ll forty million farmers what to do each day, when the success or failure of our cro>>s depends more upon the elements than upon human effort." • • • So tar as Owen Young is concerned, there is a manifest disposition here in Washington to believe that this calm, capable democrat, assigned the "Young Professors" to their plice in the scheme ol things by saying. "If I had one suggestion for trie administration ••• it would be to separate sharply the field of research from that of application. Let Uie 'brain trust' develop the principles. Let the experienced engineers apply thern in the creation of the new, practical working machines we need." * • • It is well understood, of course, that in economics and the social sciences research and experimentation are necessary. At ih* aajne time it has been suggested that theories which are fit subjects for laboratory analysis have no niac*- in governmental practice until thf-ir value has been proven. Research tcnolars, such as Professor Tugwell. -feviior Wurren, Proltitor Franfur- ler and th:- rest cf academic Washington, ii U contended, should not bt set up to "apply ' doctrines, as yet incompletely u-sted, which might destroy Atn- Bride To Be Given Shower At Titonka Titonka: Mrs. George Bcnacker and Mrs. Earl Stott entertained at a bridge luncheon and shower honoring Miss Magdaline Sartor Monday afternoon at the Bonacker home.
