a-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moinot Tuesday, November 13, 1962 6VER FOR ANOTHER 2 YEARS • The election of 1962 is over, and if it proves' anything, it proves that many people are perfectly willing to jump across party lines and vote for whomever they please. Iowa's election of Harold Hughes as governor is a perfect example. Many a Republican had to cross party lines to vote for Hughes to make his election possible. Generally speaking, tke Republican majority was otherwise elected in' Iowa. In Minnesota, Congressman Walter Judd, keynoter of the 1960 Republican national con- v6ntion, was defeated by a young lawyer named Fraser, DFt candidate. Yet the state as a w|hole just about broke even, with a slight edge to the Republican state candidates. Michigan, which has been Democratic for ailong time, elected a Republican governor, but a( the same time elected a new congressman- a[-large who was a Democrat. There had to be a Jot of switch hitting for that to happen. J',, The election of Mr. Hughes as Iowa's governor is encouraging in many ways. It indicates trjbf any man willing to stand up and be counted, to express himself honestly, to take a stand, may win the respect and also the votes of many persons normally not of his political party. It is no secret that Governor Norman Erbe was not sailing smoothly with other statehouse Republican elective officials, and we predict that Mr. Hughes may get along on a much smoother basis than Erbe, even though a Democrat in a Republican stronghold. His advocacy of liquor-by-the-drink does not mean that Iowa will change its present system, nor that the governor himself will try to change it. Such a change can come only from the state legislature, and if it did, Mr. Hughes would not veto the measure. His stand on this issue, however, and the resulting victory he achieved, might give legislators reason to ponder rather than dismiss the idea that Iowa does not care for any new ideas or new energy in administrative circles. ; Algona Upper pes * 111 E.

WALLER, Editor & Publisher DON SMITH, News Editor MERLE PRATT, Advertising M JACK PURCELL. Foreman It is just possible that if obstructionists insist on maintaining a horse and buggy attitude In a spaceman world, they, too, might go down the drain in the next election. We wish Mr. Hughes the best in his administration, and trust that all elective officials will find it more profitable and progressive for the state to cooperate than to feud on party lines. * * * DON GAVE IT HIS BEST Don Murray's bid for a seat in Congress met with failure, but the Kossuth county man made a hard and game try in his first effort as a political candidate. Only two counties in the new 6th district gave Murray a majority, those being his home county of Kossuth and our neighbor to the west, Palo Alto. Don carried two Algona wards out of four, incidentally. If one is to interpret the reelection of Mr. Hoeven correctly, we can see no need for anyone to further worry about a farm program. If the majority feel that no program is the best program, that no parity support is necessary, that crop production should be unrestricted and uncontrolled, and everything left to the "free market", then perhaps that is what should be done. That seems to be Mr. Hoeven's general idea and the idea of the organizational backing he has had. * * * SLAYING THE DRAGON If there was one thing that seemed to bloom profusely during the late election it was slaying the dragon of "unecessary public spending."

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST i Neither party had a monopoly on this approach to the voter's heart, but they all had something in common. The picture was always that of an "out- of-town dragon." He never lives in your own state or congressional district. If you represent a midwestern state, this "dragon" is down south putting wasteful supports under the price of peanuts, cotton and tobacco. If you live down south, the "dragon" is out west building shipyards and existing on fat government contracts. Or if you live in the past, he is burning up money for space or medical care for the aged, or the Peace Corps or something. Usually the foes of "unnecessary spending" have no objection to spending a few millions here and there for worthy local projects. Sort of like business men who detest government spending but seek subsidies and tax loop-holes at every turn. Of course, all government services could be cut off, town, city, state and national, in the name of economy, but some of those would be local. The thing to do is slay the dragon "somewhere else." * * * INDIA LEARNS THE HARD WAY While the events along the border between India and Red China have been overshadowed by our own Cuban developments, the border trouble there points up a most unusual situation. China is communist; India has been playing footsie with Russia for sometime, and Russia agreed several weeks ago to deliver MIG fighter planes to India. In the meantime, China, also in the communist camp and armed earlier by Russia, now takes off on India. Thus, India has found that being a defender of Red China in the United Nations, has won no friendship there. Defense Minister Krishna Menon has had many nice things to say about China in the past. Wonder what he has to say now ? %V.\V.V.V.V.V.V.VV.V.V.'.V.V.V.V.'.VAV^.VAVJ'^.V/.V.V^ FROM THE FILES OF THE \LGONA UPPEK DES MOINES NOV. 17, 1952 * • * The December draft quota for Kossuth county was set at 15 — but only eight draftees were expected to report for physicals due , , ., , , Three farm sales were listed ber of the team present at one and advertised.

You may have acquired life insurance policies which name a brother or sister or your parents as beneficiary. These should be changed to name your wife or husband. Your insurance agency will take care of this for you. Perhaps you have been buying United States savings bonds and have made them "payable on death" to a member of the family. These should be changed to be made payable to your spouse. Any bank can do this for you. If either of you owns real estate or bonds or other personal property in joint tenancy with someone else, you will probably want to change that, too. Remember that joint tenancy property always goes to the surviving joint tenant when there is a death. If you want to provide the greatest security for your spouse, you should see that all of your property is held in such a way that he or she may inherit it.
