2-Algona (la.) Upper Des Metnet Tuesday, November 27, 1962 IOWA HAS ASSETS When 17 farmers leave the land, it usually eliminates one small-town business. If the small town in Iowa is to grow, job opportunities must be made available for its young people. Some 20,000 people are moving out of Iowa every year. Many of these are our young people. Some are older people who no longer are able to find employment here. There are two answers to our presenf growth problems. One is to keep agriculture prosperous enough to make the so-called family farm a sound and profitable manufacturing unit. Secondly, an atmosphere friendly to industry must be created within the state and in its small towns. Oftentimes private capital will have to be provided for the creation of a new industry. Occasionally other concessions will have to be made to attract industry to the area. Fundamentally, a concerted effort must be made to create something of an industrial transformation in an area which has been predominately agricultural. This has been taking place gradually in Iowa, and it is not as difficult as it would seem, as most men who have farmed actively have mechanical ability which lends itself well to industrial production. Any industry or business, whether it be agricultural production as assembling a tractor, depends upon good management and the desire of those employed if it is to be successful. People in our small towns have never subscribed to or tolerated the "feather-bedding" techniques sometimes found in large industrial complexes. This is one reason that a product which depends upon efficient labor, can be produced economically and competitively in our Iowa towns. The need for more industry is recognized. The manpower is here. If state agencies will give their wholehearted effort toward the location of new industry within our areas, Iowa should be able to hold its own or exceed the industrial expansion going on in its neighboring states.

Advertising Mgr JACK PURCELL. Foreman ' Our columnist, "Grace", is about to depar for Florida as a permanent resident. So our readers may not fear the worst, the column intends to continue via airmail from Sarasota. We are certain that the sparkling content of her columns will not diminish in the Florida sunshine; who knows, it might even lend a little something, new recipes from Florida, even. One thing for certain, not every paper has a Florida special correspondent. And to those who send little memos and notes to "Grace", we'll see that they are properly forwarded. Our best to Grace and the family in their new home. * * * SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT When it looked for a time as though the two strongest nations in the world might start tossing nuclear warheads and atomic bombs at each other, there was one inwardly consoling thought — if any thought could be consoling in those circumstances. It was simply that we, here, are not in any immediately likely target area. And none is any closer than about 175 miles. We may have our drawbacks, but in a touch-and-go world situation, Kossuth county seemed like a pretty good spot. * * * TOUCHY TRAFFIC TICKETS We have ignored letters received in recent months regarding the issuing of overtime parking tickets, in Algona, but one arrived last week which we are going to reprint. It might well give pause for concern over our present inclination to ticket-ticket-ticket even when half of State Street is empty of cars. The letter follows: "Surrounding towns have co-operation between city govt. and their local business establishments. "Perhaps you could portray to this lovely City of Algona, ways and means — kindness — and consideration — promote good will that helps to maintain good business. We must THINK to keep business at home; don't drive it out of town !" /STRICTLV.BUSINESS by Metattm medicare, were re-elected by overwhelming margins, partly because of their bipartisan position. The president believes the significance of this will not be lost on other Republicans. Sen. Lister Hill of Alabama got murdered politically by the doctors even though he voted with them against medicare. This will not be lost on other southern senators. But regarding school aid and tax reform, JFK will have great difficulty. School aid depends, not on the senate, which has already passed it, but oh Cardinal Spellman and the key votes he holds in the house rules committee. Tax reform depends largely on Sen. Robert Kerr, the Oklahoma oilman, who will never go for any change in the 27- Vfe per cent depletion allowance. So far, Kennedy has shied away from any frontal conflict with Kerr. If he takes off the gloves with his own Democratic obstructionists the same way he did with Khrushchev over Cuba, he may get somewhere. Otherwise, he won't.

The ticket was not a summons or notice of a fine, but it indicated that the visitor had parked beyond the meter allowance. It concluded "you do NOT have to appear on this ticket." Probably our police department has as many headaches as anyone, and no more desires to antagonize than anyone else. But we are sometimes overly zealous in the ticket deportment, and this newspaper hears frequent complaints on the subject and considerable anger, too. If the city is crowded it is one thing; if parking space is plentiful it is another. An excess minute is one thing, a half hour another. Sometimes meters are not working at all. There is an element of common sense needed, and without it the business of this community will suffer. Let's please use good judgment in the issuing of overtime parking tickets. * * * A small town is the place where a fellow with a black eye doesn't have to explain how he got it. People already know. - Ellsworth News. WASHINGTON - JFK is using unique kid-glove, mailed-first policy with the Russians over Cuba. The public may not be aware of it, but the Soviet Union is. When the Russians delayed in getting Castro to accept inspection In 1962. the agriculture department estimates that the United States will spend $7.8 billion on tobacco products of which about 3.2 billion will be received by federal, state, and local governments.

Kennedy knew that one of the best ways to leak information to the Russians is through London. Meanwhile, however, he had employed a reasonable policy in diplomatic talks with the Russians at the UN. He has received reports from the American embassy in Moscow that Khrushchev has his own political troubles from the pro-war group in Kremlin, and he wants to strengthen Khrushchev by giving him some face-saving outs. The public doesn't understand this complicated diplomacy, but it seems to be working. —o— SECRECY ON CIGARETTES Every possible precaution was taken to keep the press away from the first meeting of the surgeon general's advisory committee on smoking and health, sometimes called "The Cigarette Committee."

A wire on a ventilating fan was also burned off. A fire had evidently started due to old wiring in the attic of the building and for some reason had burned itself out without doing any damage other than to the drop cord and fan. It was fortunate the fire did burn itself out because the entire roof and much of the interior of the building was wood.
