2-Algdtnt (Itt.) Uppar DM Moin«« Tuesday, July 3, 1962 THESE WOMEN! By d'Alessio MR. HOEVEN CHANGES HIS MIND IKE AND THE MILITARY BUDGET One of the curious aspects of the current effort to come up with some type of a farm plan for this country for next year and the future, is the thinking of Congressman Charles Hoeven, a candidate from this district (Iowa 6th) for re-election this fall. Mr. Hoeven, after the defeat of the Kennedy-sponsored farm bill in the House recently, has proposed a continuation of the present voluntary feed grain program. The strange part is that last year Mr. Hoeven VOTED AGAINST THIS PROGRAM. However, the program has worked better that its critics had predicted, and it has also proved popular. Thus, Mr. Hoeven has evidently decided that what he was against last year he is "for" this year, especially when most of the farmers in his new district have sort of taken to the program. But the program for 1962 was continued into this year only; if no new legislation is passed, or if this program is not continued, there is going to be no program at all for next year. The administration's efforts were based on an attempt to establish a long-range program, not one that was a stop gap, year to year. Yes, we think the voluntary feed grain program last year and this has been quite effective; it has reduced the feed grain surplus by 10 million tons for one thing. It must be fairly good; even Mr. Hoeven is now for it. Next ihing we know, he might even be suggesting fhat he thought it up. LIQUOR ISSUE BACK AGAIN Exchange — We hoped when we were given mild beer and liquor stores for the heavier drinks 27 years ago the issue was settled for good. There has been less liquor disturbance over the liquor law that we have, than during any previous time within the past 60 years. Some dissatisfaction in late years has been expressed because of the limitation of our present liquor law. Demands have been becoming more persistent to get the liquor program in Iowa expanded to permit the sale of liquor by the drink. One candidate for governor in Iowa this year has had the courage to made a /(q'uor by the drink proposal as his major issue in the campaign. If the candidate wins we may stilt not get liquor by the drink but the chances are if we should have a liquor by the drink governor we would have a legislature that could be expected to lean the same way. If liquor by the drink wins or loses in the governorship race, we hope it will be by a wide enough margin to bury the proposal for many years to come. Wet and dry issues make troublesome bedfellows in any campaign. Ippcr prs ^ 111 E. Call Street—Ph. CY 4-3535— Algona, Iowa Second clan pottage paid at Algona.

Foreman ' Past President Eisenhower threw something of a bombshell at a recent dinner when he declared that "I personally believe that the defense budget should be substantially reduced." He added a little to this general theme, here and there, at a Republican fund-raising event in Washington. Ike's remarks caught members of both parties somewhat by surprise. In fact several of his own parly members were somewhat stunned. Both parties had amiably gone along with an increase in the defense budget for the coming year of $2 billion. When nearly 60'r of the total national expenditure, however, goes for military purposes, direct or indirect, we are inclined to agree with Ike that maybe somewhere some of the fat could be trimmed. Neither Ike, nor anyone else, would advocate a weakening of total national strength. But somehow or other it seems next to impossible to maintain common sense in financial matters concerning military expenditures. Ike sort of hinted that there is a considerable segment of big industry today that is doing pretty well from "defense" contracts, and that they may yell about their taxes on the one hand, but they are all for getting the contracts that cause the taxes on the other hand. He also said that he believed in "strength, but not strength loaded by hysteria." Now that Ike is no longer in the White House, he can speak quite freely. While president, he had the various units of the armed forces pushing hard for big appropriations all the time. Now he can sit back and more or less say what he thinks about the whole thing. Coming from a past president, and the biggest military name in the country today, we are inclined to think he must know what he is talking about. "You mean to say you hit the same one? But didn't you knock that tree down LAST week?" SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO Here were the office rules which were posted in a large Chicago mercantile firm about 75 years ago. In today's age of the 36 or 40 hour-week, time and a half, paid this and that, and unemployment insurance, it makes interesting reading: FROM THE FILES OF THE ALGONA UPPER DES MOINES JULY 7, 1942 » • * An Algona woman, Mrs Joe Bestenlehner, received a very nice gift from two of her sons who were overseas. Her sons, Don and Sig Wood, sent her a dozen beautifully hand embroidered Irish lace handkerchiefs. The Wood boys had been stationed in Ireland since early in 1942. Two Algona women, Mrs Jessie Edwards and Mrs Charles Heard, were injured during a retailers Victory Parade here Wednesday. The women were riding on a float in the parade. The float stopped on loose gravel and the two ladies were thrown to the ground. Mrs Edward suffered bruises which made it necessary to take her to land, Paulette Goddard, Raymond Masscy, Lynne Overman, Robert Preston, Susan Hayward, Charles Bickford and Martha O'Driscoll. With a cast like that and DeMille's direction, it must have been a smash hit.

He's about 26 very neat and good looking. The main problem is that he's now in the process of getting a divorce. (All of the trouble was his wife's fault.) He's dated two other girls here and they had such nice times they're only sorry he doesn't ask them out oftcner. I live with mv grandparents and when I asked them about this, they flew off the handle. Is there any harm in a date with him? — Nice Girl. Dear Nice Girl: While the dating wouldn't hurt your reputation it wouldn't do it any good. Divorced men, whether or not they're to blame, always have a strike on them and some parents and grandparents just don't approve.
