ROOSEVELT—A MAN OF THE PEOPLE Election Is only a week away. And those forces which are fighting so hard against the reelection of Roosevelt are thrusting further into the open, enabling the great masses of the public, in both city and country, to get a better view of who they are, and why they are opposing the •lection of the man who has undeniably stopped depression, and at least started us on the road to better times—and permanently better times. [They are: WEALTHY INTERESTS—Their fears are sim- , ply that Rooseveltlan plans will cut deep Into their surplus wealth, wealth that they themselves can •ever use except as a donation in some way or other. Corporations resent the fact that the government hopes all unnecessary surpluses can be legislated either Into the pockets of the stock-' holders who made It, or Into the federal treasury. Federal plans regarding corporations do not endanger the strength of the corporation, nor the value of a stock holder's interest, but they do intend to eliminate the plutocratic and unearned Income now going into the hands of a few "big shots." Henry Ford has sold more cars in the last two years of Roosevelt than he did In four under Hoover. He likes to sell cars, but he seems to think that being asked to foot a part of the bill is somehow or other not fair to himself. THE GAMBLERS AND SPECULATORS—The Federal Reserve board has curbed the use of depositors' money for speculation, and insured bank deposits. The Federal government has made avall- able seed, feed and production loans for farmers, eliminating the loan sharks. The salesman of worthless securities is no longer practical under government protection. Speculators In farm commodities can no longer reap the reward that the fanner earns and deserves. Yes, those fellows are *n against Roosevelt THE MUNITIONS" MAKERS—Federal investigation disclosed the part played by munition maker*, Including the DuPonts, In fostering war for their own personal gains. Roosevelt recommended smd congress enacted laws to keep America out of war; there are hopes of enacting legislation so that to times of war, wealth as well as men can be conscripted. Then the munition boys will sing another tone. But right now, they're all against Roosevelt TARIFF PIRATES AND PACKERS—The administration has adopted a policy of giving the farmers a chance to export their products and break up this game of protected monopolists, so the tariff barons oppose Roosevelt The administration farm program helped to bring about price advances in farm products, giving the farmer a fair price. The packer oppose this and they oppose Roosevelt SUMMARY—AH concentrations of private and Monopolistic wealth are opposing Roosevelt, all self- Making politicians either within or outside of the democratic party are opposing Roosevelt Honest business men, laborer*, and the farmer know they can and will get a square deal from the present sulmlnlstratlon, and they can do nothing less than vote for Roosevelt November 3rd. THE VAGARIES OF COACHING The team loses; the coach is on the pan. One of the shortcomings of all athletic contests Is the fact that In a competitive affair, somebody almost always loses. For every winner there must be a loser. Football fortunes are like cycles of depression, war or weather. A team is favored for so many years, and feels the sting of reverses for so many more. There seems to be no explanation for it, but it has been a proved fact in all universities, colleges and high schools. No brilliant victory record can last forever, nor can an equally poor one. And so, as University of Iowa alumni feel their teams needs some form pf r3vlving, the neck of Coach Ossle Solem begins to feel the approach of a gillotine knife. Whether or not Ossie is "big time" calibre we cannot, and do not try to argue. You have your own view, and that's good enough for us. Rut Ossie has delivered clean teams and good sportsmanship, and that's a lot, even if the record of wins and losses isn't so good. There is talk of bringing Clark Shaughnessy from the University of Chicago to Iowa City, making him head football coach, and Ossie Solem athletic director. Two good heads are better than one good head, always. It might help to solve the problem. And ono of these days the Hawkeyes will blos- •om forth with a cracking good team, reminiscent of the days of Locke, Slater and Devine, and it won't matter much whether it's Solem, or Shaughnessy or one of the Jones boys, because it will just be Iowa's turn to start winning 'em. By O. 8. Relley, Secy. Algona Chamber of Commerce Dent know whether or not weH rate a by-line on this contribution, but If we do, we'll probably have plenty of knock-knocks on our door tomorrow morning. If we remain anonymous, you'll all agree we will be free from hecklers. • • . When we were asked and invited to knock this little effort out (that's a dandy newspaper term) last Thursday morn, your editor was on the shelf temporarily. Not completely passe but pretty low in spirits, because he had attended a Legion dance at Bancroft (thanks for the free ad) the eve before. An old friend from Minneapolis was in town and that's the way it goes. • • Although not exactly an amateur in the Fourth Estate, It has been some time since we attempted (that's the right word) this type of drivel. But we were forced into It, witness: a bribe of a cigarette and a cup of coffee, sympathy for Bill Haggard, that pleading glint in RUBS' eyes, and our ambition to try and please all. Not to mention our doctrine of cooperation. • • « We offer no apologies to the real "Odds and Ends", "Timely Topics", "Over the Coffee", "Eye Observing", "Rotary Rag", "The Algona Kiwanton", or even "The Man About Town." And too, Chris in his "Movies" will have to stand the competition, temporarily at least, although he has been waxing political of late. Not that it really matters, but what do you mean by "Watanyans"? Now that we have struggled this far on the trusty Underwood (Editor's note: "We sell 'em you know) on our alleged guest column, we wonder If length will add depth. • * And speaking of guest columns and who doesn't these days, how did you like the group HSM had pinch-hitting for him in "Over The Coffee" while he was enrouteing to Europe. We'll pass on most of them, but Do you suppose if some of us whispered new ideas in Partner Haggard's ear he would ship Partner Waller off to Europe to report on the Five- Year Plan In Russia? Messrs. Cowles and Ingham sent Harlan Miller arid his b. w. to the Continent, and soon we may expect to read In the "Paper Iowa Depends On" just what caused King Eddie's heartbeats about Baltimore Wally ... the color of Mussolini's shirts and shorts (If he wears 'em, he's such a he-man) just who started the civil war In Spain, and who is paying who . . . how Adolph H. maintains his poise in the face of everything . . . and so on, far Into the night or the ocean. Nice title the column next door enjoys, but were we doing it or this, w would suggest a reversal. Namely: "The Town About The Man." Several old-timers have told us that for quite a while Uncle Sam and Mr. Boss have been threatening to erect a new post office building and a new hotel, or at the best a new addition. And lately, since the ground has been broken on both projects, we have heard the whisper (not from our wife, Russ) that our coming to the "Friendly City" last August 1, hurried the deals along. Of course, we don't believe it, (and you don't either) but it makes good copy. Net result, though, TWO new buildings. "Friendly City"—where have we heard that before? Is the term applicable to all the owners and employees of the many retail and wholesale business houses we have visited since August? It Is in the majority of cases, but alas and alack, there are always exceptions to the best rules. Why, would you and you and you believe that we have gone Into a few places in ALGONA (if you want the unadulterated truth from your reporter and the UDM will print it) even In company with commltteemen from our best professions and businesses, and have literally been tossed out on our collective ears? Not that it mattered much, but some courtesy could have been shown the localltes. After all, we're free from contagious diseases and perchance may some day be induced to spend a dime or so. May 1 repeat that cases as listed above are in the minority. Rehabilitation Loans Lead 3 Kossuth Families to Recovery Among the Kossuth county farm families rounding out the 1936 harvest before the coming of winter are three who were able to do an active job of farming this year through the help of Rehabilitation Loans. This statement was made here today by James E. Long, county rehabilitation supervisor for the resettlement administration, In reporting activities of the administration. "These families, totaling 12 persons, now are farming 462 acres In the county," he said. "Ownership of the farms is as follows; one owned by the borrower himself, and two owned by other private individuals." A larger percentage of the farmers operating through rehabilitation loans either were on relief rolls or were urgently in need of public aid when they obtained their loans, according to Mr. Long. The devastating depression years followed by drought had reduced resources of these people almost to the vanishing point Sickness and individual misfortunes also contributed. It was a case of their getting .uans or being unable to continue fa- 'Ing. "The main difference between the rehaoiitatlon loans and other forms of credit are (1) The borrower must be unable to obtain credit from any other loan agencies and, (2) Assistance is given in setting up and carrying out workable farm and home management plans," Mr. LonT said. "Farmers having received these loans are obliged to repay them tht Chicago Plant Huge Livestock Exhibit Chicago, Oct 84—(America's an* nual continental congress of agriculture, the International Live Stock Exposition, will-be held November 28 to December 6 In the new International amphitheater at the Chicago Stock Yard*. It will b* the 37th renewal of this largest annual exhibition of purebred farm animals and crops In the country, and according to the management, one of the biggest shows In its history. B. H. Helde, secretary-nwnagw of the exposition, states that plans are now under way to house over 13,000 animals at the 10S» show. He reports that entries are pr-uring in from leading storkrwi and farmers In neftrl/ every state »n the union and province of Canada, list- ii-g their pr- M l-.o-ds and Sock* for the competitions that will featurt more than 30 different breeds of draft and light fcorses, beef cattle, sheep and swine. MILWAUKIE BEER UM Ulont(U«-1htQuicltt«t Uloy to bouittl same as In the case of any other loan. Repayment Is made In designated Installments and the notes carry a 5 per cent Interest charge. They are secured by first Hens on livestock and equipment" Each of the Kossuth county rehabilitation clients was carefully investigated before his loan application was approved. In addition, the land was checked to ascertain whether or not It was capable of producing sufficient crops for his needs. Before the money actually was loaned to the applicant, a careful farm and home management plan was worked out by the farm family and the supervisor. These plans take into consideration the best farm management practice advocated by the extension service of the state agricultural college. He added that pending foreclosures or other acute debt distress had made it necessary in some Instances for debt adjustments to ba effected before loans could be made. "In such cases, the Resettlement Administration and the Kossuth county voluntary farm debt adjustment committee cooperated in assisting the applicants and their creditors to work out adjustments which would allow the fanners to ...a.11 tain an adequate supply of equipment," he explained. Success of the rehabiltatlon program in Kossuth county is indicated by the fact that, despite the drought, estimated income of these families is expected to average about $1021.67 this year as compared to $817.00 in 1935. Seek'37 Program < •' • i - 1<i Situation WUaon Has No Smelly Bond Record Webster City Journal: Evidently George A. Wilson republican candidate for governor of Iowa, •xpects to be elected. Otherwise he would hardly resign his position as state senator from the Des Moinea district, as his term doesn't expire until 193ft The political outlook seems to justify Mr. Wilson's optimism in his success at the polls on the third of November. Despite the fact that he fy fl . the ablest campaigner in the democratic party of Iowa as an opponent for the office he is pretty sure of being our next governor, a position which he is exceptionally well qualified to fill to the sat- iafactlon of the people to the credit of himself. The Terrible Tax Burden Clear Lake Reporter: Cerro Gordo county's •hare of the tax to pay back the $4,800,000,000 which the president of the United States has the authority to use as be chooses, is approximately three million dollars. We'll pay it largely in indirect tnnf»«_ if it is ever repaid. And it must be repaid, or repudiated, and we'll not do the latter. No con-can with propriety delegate such power to living Gambling at County Fairs EathervUle Vindicator: Complaints are made there were too many gambling devices at the day cow»ty fair. Perhaps there were from the view point of some, but not by the liberal minded. Personally, we believe gambling devices, such as ware at the Spencer fair, are a good thing. It fiHHrhtT the simple minded, at no great loss, that they should not play another man'8 game and ex- to win. The lesson should be sufficient to bin, out of big games that might mean the of several hundred dollars. That is why the nttt. truaef at county fairs should not be discour- Aod also, U -one Is foolish enough to play man'* game and lose be should be a real not ••*•» However the new Chamber of Commerce is going over in good shape, and as Joe Bloom has so aptly put it on several occasions when soliciting for new members: "We must all stand behind the Chamber, boys, and cooperate." SUGGESTIONS. A few remarks we are offering for the betterment of the immediate future. Some are good, others not so bad. Give them the double 0, take your choice, or maybe we're all wrong. 1. CONTINUOUS NIGHT LIGHTING. Instead of plunging the residential section into darkness from 1 to 4 a. m., why not let 'em burn all night? 2. PAID FIREMEN. A city of 4500 people should enjoy the protection and safety of at least two paid firemen, on duty at all times. Must we confess to the world that we do NOT have a paid fireman? :«o criticism of the present force, but Chief Anderson agrees with this proposal. 3. STOP SIGNS. More stop signs in the school zones; and a better observance of tnem all 4. JEALOUSIES. Discard the petty jealousies now neing exhibited and exploited by business competition. Adopt the policy of the Advance and the Upper Des Moines, it's working. 5 BLE \CHERS. More and better seats and bleachers are badly needed for the football games at Athletic Park. 6. HALLS. Since we are becoming convention and meeting minded, why not a Community Building or a Memorial Hall? 7. BASEBALL. A better and more profitable baseball team for next season and incidently more real fans to attend the games. 8. FRIENDLY CITY. A few of the merchants and clerks and professional people would profit by adopting the ATTITUDE of a friendly city, instead of just the title. ("We wonder who he means"). 9. JAIL. A new city jail wouldn't be a bit bad for the city, considering that we are now using the county's. Providing, of course, we do not have to sleep in it. 10. FAIR. A $32,000.00 profit Fair next year, and the answer to that is, more people in the city and county and neighboring territory to boost it, to back it, and above all, to attend it. 11. Revision of street names would be in order, with the names running east and west, and the numbers, north and south. 12. MARKERS. If the above suggestion is effected, then we should install a real system of street markers, two on a corner, of cement, and legible. 13. FIRE TRUCK. Here's one for you fanners to back. Don't you need a farm fire truck to answer all alarms in the country and reduce your rates? 14. FACTORY. A small factory employing 50, 75 or 100 men would be a real aaset for the county seat of Iowa's largest county—-tut we understand some of you do NOT want a factory in Algona. What more can we say, do we want a small factory or not? • • • i'tunou* Liutt Lint—How's uiy bu»Ue?" Caused By Drouth Among the questions on the 1937 farm program being discussed in township meetings in Kossuth county this week are three which seek to adjust, and Improve the program to meet abnormal conditions caused by the drouth, says Wm. Frimml, chairman 'of the county agricultural conservation committee. Among the questions being discussed are: 1. What changes should be made in basis of payment to meet 1937 conditions? 2. What soil building practices for which payment was made in 1036 should be retained in 1937? What practices should be added? 3. What changes should be made in crop classifications to meet 1937 conditions "Confronted by an abnormal situation resulting from the drouth it should be the object of the 1937 program to help the farmer recover the ground be has lost, as wel as help him to adopt a better cropping system than he has normal); followed in the past," said Mr k'rimml. "Whether any changes should be made in the basis of payment, in the crop classification or in soil building practices in order to carry out the alms of the program and adapt it to 1937 conditions are matters for farmers themselves to decide. Because of the heavy losses of soil conserving crops due to the drouth, definite encouragement should be given to starting an ln- 1 creasingly large acreage of soil conserving crops next year. This might be done by modifying the classification of crops from that used in the 1936 program, or by placing greater emphasis on soil building practices in 1937. In fact, it may be desirable to do both. Any material change in the crop classification, however, would necessitate revisions in soil depleting bases. 1 DEDICATION OF a new organ , at the LuVeme Evangelical, JLuth 'eran church was observed a wee! _j Sunday, with Rev.
