CRITICISM OF PATTERSON Now that George Patterson of Burt has been nominated for Henutennnt governor on th-? republican ticket, he Is receiving even more criticism from some quarters than he did when he was a member of the stat? senate— and at times that was plenty. As our readers know, when Patterson was in the senate there wer? many times when we did not agree with Slim. One of these points of difference was <he question of repealing the state and federal prohibition laws. Gco, was strong for prohibition; he is still strong for it personally. But any one who knows George Patterson knows that he is sincere in his convictions, and he Is not afraid to speak his mind. Now that state-owned liquor Stores have come in, and the voters of the state as a •whole have voted for something different <han prohibition, Patterson is perfectly willing that this new form of liquor control be given a gr«od fair and square show. What more can anyone ask? And. his critics should remember that Patterson rrprtwntcd fiv? counties in t^? Ftate senate, nc: jus; Kos^uih. two of •arhoni voted drr. and a third co-antr went wet by cruy a scant margin.

As l>put«iant pyremor. Pa:;-rrson's chief duty would t* to -art is umpire in (he senate, and it is safe to say tias he ••Wild do a pretty fair and impartial job of it. To repeat: -w* have not, aiways agreed with George Patterson, but we have never for a moment doubted his honesty and his sincerity, two mighty important virtues in any man seeking public office. The charge that Patterson "represents the packers" is something of a joke. too. Just cheap political froth. Patterson never showed any signs of hobnobbing with any packers to our knowledge, or with any clique. He has always been and still is fundamentally a hardworking farmer, whose natural interest In public affairs has led him Into politics. And whether we agree or disagree with him, we'll not -worry about anyone vising him as a "representative." Go to It, George, and the best of luck! A SICKENING MESS Although'!, our own shirt tails are by no means spotless at the present moment, and we have a few strikes in progress, a few thumping of pates, and few "public enemies" still at large, yet when we follow the day-by- day developments of Europe, we cannot help but fccl that by contrast. Europe Is In a sickening mess of its own making. What the outcome will be, only that invisible and Inscrutable thing called Fa''.c can tell. European nations ar? hard to understand. They produce the very best in literary, musical and entertainment genius. They produce artisans from whom we copy ideas. They have a zest for living and an easy joy In lif« that sometimes might make fast-stepping America a bit envious. But with all these virtues, Europe Is embroiled In one meloe after another. Like the drunk the morning after, who swears off of all llnuor. Eurorx>an leaders will meet, rihake hands, express friendship for each othc-r. Twenty- four hours later same unfortunate incident may find the same people calling each other everything under the sun. One generation finds a set of alliances between certain countries; the next generation finds them mortal enemies. Speaking from a standpoint of government, the European continent is a .sickening mess, find trw one hundred and some odd million on this side of the.

The idea of the service club Is splendid; men who might not otherwise have a chance to meet even an hour, lunch together and exchange views, perhaps develop warm friendships and better mutual understanding; a community service program is usually carried out over the year. All thai! is fine, critics agrw, but some of them locally have expressed the sentiment that they believe service clubs have one serious drawback—they prevent the development of a stronger community club and the working out of a twelve months' program of commercial activity. In a talk last week with one of the 1-adlng business men of the community, he emphatically stated that he felt Algona was losing out on the fringes of its trade territory, through lack of community efforts of a cooperative nature. He suggested that the service clubs disband, and that a concentrated drive be put on to combine all business and professional men of the city into one big. active community club of some sort, meeting every month, and planning affairs of community interest throughout the year. The idea is passed on for what it might be worth. odds and ends This incident happened some time ago. but there may be some who have not heard about it ...

The farmer evinced no anger, and as the motorist was preparing to leave, a flock of chickens crossed his path, whereupon he swerved, but not quick enough, and two chickens went to their happy hunting grounds. But in swerving, he swung toward the family dog, which met death under one wheel. The motorist backed up and apologted again. The farmer looked at him for a min- '.titc and staid: "Stranger you've killed my fhecD. and now you've killed two chickens and my dog. The next time you're along this way let me know and I'll have my wife out here In the yard." • • • When Bret Han was editing a newspaper in California, the wife of ft prominent citizen died, and In writing the cbituary he remarked: "She was distinguished for charity above all th-? other women of the town."
