2-Alflona (la.) Upper Des Moinet TUESDAY, JULY 24, 1962 et lje$ Ittotttes PEASANTS, FRONT AND CENTER WOMEN YEARN FOR SPACE The "farm problem" is no problem at all to a group called the Committee for Economic Development. This group, quoted widely in last week's daily press, has a simple solution. Just move one-third of ail the farm fam- Jlies of today from farms within the next five years, and 'resettle" them adjacent to industry. We must admit that the C.E.D. has a for- .jnula for quickly reducing the farm population; "\ve assume that their belief is that this will al,^so reduce the total agricultural produc* ^ Between 1950 and 1960, even without the tC.E.D. the population of Kossuth County dropped about 1.100 and most of it was rural. The -proposal to eliminate one-third of today's far- by this transplanting operation would further reduce Kossuth County's population by •another 5,000. »• There might be some problem as to where j^jhey would be transferred, and as to what ^would doppen to the small towns and the ^county seat in Kossuth, but we know the C.E.D. ^could have another brainstorm session and •«ome up with a quick solution to that, too. Of course, there might be some who would Jjee! that the quick removal program smacks of W regimentation , like it used to be in the old ..days when whole nations or groups of people •*vere forced from their land, or from one section of the old world to another. But this is -modern feudalism; peasants are peasants, and 3 h e C.E.D. is tired of hearing about the farm program. « Another proposal of the C.E.D. is that much ^of the farmland in the Great Plains and Rocky Mountain area be converted to grassland, and jjthaf the farmers left be induced to "switch to ••great overabundance of livestock, of course "tut the C.E.D. has merely to hold another skull Cession and solve this as quickly as they did "the question of farm population. „ Members of the Committee for Economic "•Development as listed in the press represent /"entirely vast industrial and banking groups of "the nation. They are greatly worried about any Jax money being expended in the interests of agriculture. Perhaps it was just an oversight, ^3ut they said nothing about the much greater government expenditures in which they benefit directly, such as oversupplying the govern- ^men't with all types of items, both civflian and military. And they do not mention the windfalls j-eceived by loaning money to the government, -cr the fast depletion writeoffs they get in taxes. ^But these are minor Hems; the farmers^rnvst The wife of a U. S. Senator from Michigan made quite a pitch on behalf of women for a place in the "outer space club." Mrs. Philip Hart does not think that women are getting enough attention in plans for probing the outer heavens. She does not want all of this outer space exploration to turn strictly into a Stag Club." We just knew that before long women would wake up to the fact outer space thus far has been pretty much a man's world Of course, if we really want to send women into outer space, we might establish the proper recruiting unit and training camps for preparation. And we suspect there would be no lack of recommendations of women who might be rocketed outward; husbands alone might be able to develop quite a list of prospects. To drive her point home, Mrs. Hart warned that if we don't do it, the Russians probably will. And by all means, let's not let the Russians get ahead of us by sending a woman orbiting around the heavens before we do. Man's exclusive conquest of the outer areas seems doomed to be brief. Wonder how a woman would powder her nose and put on the lipstick as she traveled weightlessly, and without any gravitational pull, way out yonder?

Can you take shorthand?" PARKING METER'S ROUGH HISTORY Eagle Grove Eagle - On July 6, 1935 the first parking meters ever seen went on tria on a two block stretch of an Oklahoma City street. Since that time they have had a rough and precarious existence. They have caused riots, boycotts, and an endless number of law suits. But today there are two million of them located (^ 3,850 cities and towns and they do in excess of 127 million an annual business dollars. One of the most interesting facts about parking meters is that they have been able to win nearly all law suits over their existence through a court decision of 1805 FROM THE FILES OF THE ALGONA CPPER DES MOINES JULY 28, 19-42 FROM THE FILES OF THE ALGONA UPPER DES MOINES JULY 29, 1952 The auto had a blow-out just be, struck the mower, throwing Riedel 20 ft. ahead of the machine The mower continued down the highway and might have run over the injured man if he had not been able to jump out of the way — just in time. The new mower was termed a total loss and extensive damage also resulted to the auto. * * * Mrs Clara Walker, Algona, returned to her duties as county recorder following a one-week vacation, during which time she got settled in her new home. * * « There were to be 14 new teachers in the Algona public school system when the 1952-53 school year got underway. The new teachers were named to fill the staff, which numbered 59.

Foreman ' A wealthy North Dakota wheat farmer was once fmed SI.00 for over 'time parkingTand he spent a fortune fighting the machines. He caused two statewide referendums which resulted in the meters being outlawed in that state. Another man W. W. Wood of Tacoma, Washington, has gained notoriety by his fight against the meters. He has gotten 35 over time parking tickets in the last three years and has appeared in court 23 times. He has also served 34 days in jail for his refusal to put money m the meters. Despite their spotted history even objectors ie meters usually concede that they have occorrpl.shed two things. They have relieved traffic snarls in congested downtown areas and they have proved to be wonderful sources of revenue for hard pressed city administrations who have too few sources for funds. * * * THEY HAVE CHANGE OF HEART Grundy Register - A year ago when the present feed grain program was up for approval top ranking Farm Bureau leaders and members ^ Congress from Iowa op- be bad for GOP posed far rne T A a rr t, , t r . i». and io>d j, helped to defeat the '01 fc.ll v,h,ch carried tions, attendance-wise, and was , «-— • held at various points in the state J> & H oil Co - and Dr. Egan's of- each summer.
