When three Republican candidates for reelection were invited fo speak, last Thursday, at the state plowing match program held at Atlantic, and no Democrats at all were invited, the obviously one-sided situation resulted in considerable publicity. In fact the one-sided narrowness on ihe part of whoever sponsors the match might be a benefit in disguise for the Democratic nominees. Most folks like to see a spirit of fair play in their politics. Most of us who are Democrats have no malingering hatred for a Republican, and most Republicans are perfectly willing to break bread or slurp coffee with a Democrat. But the plowing match arrangers felt different- '*' It would be interesting to know just who made the decision to invite Republicans only. We always thought of plowing matches, like corn husking contests, or community celebrations, as non-political events, and if you did invite a candidate of one party you are usually careful to invite the candidate of the other party as well. * * * WHOA, THERE, SENATOR U. S. Senator B. B. Hickenlooper, speaking at a Country Club gathering in southern Iowa last week, is reported in the press as making the following assertion: "Latin American countries lost confidence in the U. S. after the faulty political leadership which resulted in the Cuban fiasco at the Bay of Pigs." The Bay of Pigs fiasco, Senator, was the final climax of a plan that was approved and developed in the closing year of the preceding administration. President Kennedy on taking office could have forced a cancellation of the whole thing, but did not. It proceeded as it had been planned long before he took office, and came to a dismal failure only a few months after he was in office. If there is any blame to be placed for the "fiasco" let it be placed where it properly belongs, on the original planners.

And few sports have had as lively a history. Football is an ancient sport. The Spartans played a game called "harpaston" back about 500 B. C. In this game a ball was kicked, passed or carried across the opponent's goal line, according to one encyclopedia. The Romans had a similar game, called "follis." It used something akin to a modern football, made of leather and inflated with air, but propelled by foot in soccer-style. Medieval Italy had "calcio", 27 players on a team, with a line and backfield formations. In 1823 at Rugby, a famous boys' school, one of the players decided to be different and disregarding the rules calling for kicks only, he grabbed the ball and carried it in his arms across the goal line. The score was not allowed, but it set the pace for the modern game of football. By 1863 the game of Rugby had become very popular, and from it modern football developed. Early in the 19th century, Harvard and Yale developed the sport, and the first intercollegiate game of football was played Nov. 6, 1869, between Princeton and Rutgers. In 1880, Walter Camp, the father of American football, persuaded the rule makers to reduce team size from 15 to 11, to allow play from scrimmage, 2nd to install a quarterback for the purpose of calling plays. Alonzo Stagg was the man who pioneered in setting up eligibility rules and enforcing them with amateur standards. So, as you cheer on your favorite football teams this fall, remember, you are following a sport that had a similar interest for the Spartans of 500 B. C. * * * ARE WE MISSING THE BOAT? Britt News-Tribune — The Iowa Tourism Promotion council is starting a program to call attention to Iowa's attractions for tourists. In its first issue of its promotion folder they gave these facts on the importance of tourists to local economies. "Tourism is a 41 billion dollar per year industry.

The Federal Department of Commerce found that 24 persons stopping a day in a community will leave approximately $100,000.00 per year.

Lately another national scandal has come to light in Washington. Former Secretary of the Treasury Humphrey in the Eisenhower administration is charged with having made enor.nous profits through nickel contracts with the U. S. government. The investigation showed that the M. A. Hanna Company of which Humphrey was the major stockholder had made a profit of $39 million from an investment of $4.5 million in supplying nickel under contract to the U. S. government. For a cabinet member to make huge profits in dealing with his government is bad and dangerous practice and it is never done openly. That Humphrey scandal may be used by one party to offset the damage, if any, against the olher party. Both sides would be well advised if neither of the scandals was made a po- l.tical issue.

My girl i former girl) is 18 and last month got back from a nursing home where she had her baby. You see, we dated for about a year and then she broke up with me to go with this guy who is 25. He's the iiaini'd father of the baby but he skipped out before it was born and no one «'ountry knows where he is to this day. My former girl is a good girl, Dan, and never did a wrong thing be-i fore in her life. She just got mixed up with the wrong guy, that's all. AS far as we're concerned, I know we could make a go of it this time but my parents say if I ever date her, I'll have to find a new home. My mother is sympathetic but she figures if a girl has a baby and isn't married, she should be tarred and feathered and run out of town. My father is entirely unreasonable and says the girl is worse than a tramp. I feel that I'm nearly an adult, I'm on my own with a good job and John that 1 should be allowed to date this girl. She comes from a fine fam- Fred ily and if 1 don't start dating her, she won't have a friend in town. — f. K. Dear T.
