Anent the immortal George hurtle says a a Brilliant statesman and Soldier at the age of 26 Quot George Washington s most Sublime moment was when he was overed and declined the Crown and throne of King of America. Of course Burtie timing congenitally opposed to the truth in any form handles history with that same disregard for facts that characterizes his Dia trifles against the nonpartisan league. A George Washington was a Brilliant Soldier and statesman at the age of 26,�?� says hurtle. George Washington was bom in 1732 and first began taking an Active interest in the Workings of the \ Irmia House of burgesses of which he was a member. In 1763, says history. George was then 31 ears old his first political act of any consequence. That could even remotely raise him to the dignity of statecraft was his work in the first Continental Congress which convened in 1774. George was then 42, according to history or 26 according to Gump. As to his being offered a kingship that is a pleasant fiction Fiat should Fie expurgated from the pages of american history. There was some Small talk on this subject by the Burtie Gumps of that Day who could conceive of no satisfactory government that would not permit them to Bow scrape and kowtow at the feet of Royalty but the idea was never for one moment countenanced by Jefferson Paine Franklin or any of the others of the real founders of the Republic. Burtie. In his patriotic effusion simply shows that he is As ignorant of the fundamentals of american history As he is of the soviet land Law of communistic Russia. That a Man showing a Sublime ignorance of National affairs that would be reprehensible in a to year old school child should appoint himself a criterion of patriotism is to us incomprehensible. Of it hits them All very Well planned indeed. It was planned that the workers should Speed up and produce More to save the country from ruin. Speed up work longer horns increase production All these Are familiar terms. The workers Olwe Ved and seeded up and worked a longer hours and increased production. Of course i they did. They always obey. I on the Jirm the banners were urged to Speed f up. They were told to put in better and bigger crops to Breed latter and bigger hogs and cattle. They were Given the Aid of the county agent. The capitalists agreed to furnish the agent if the banners Only paid his wages. Big business was very enthusiastic about the county agent. He was the big Man for the former the Farmer was told. He must show the banners How to rotate crops How to seed How to buy tractors How to get new and improved machinery How to build silos How to get Cream separators How to secure trucks to haul their produce to Market How to raise pigs and calves and beef How to make Alfalfa and soy i in Rte grow How to get up Early in the morning and work till late at night How to get hired help at High wages How to organize country clubs and get real spirit into the Church and entertain the preacher in Fine style. Great program the county agent Laid out for the Farmers. Great plans he proposed. All for greater 1 production. A and the Farmers produced and produced. They bought blooded Stock at exorbitant prices. They got Clover at 75 cents and Alfalfa at $1 a Pound. They paid $2,000 for a full blooded boar and $5,000 for a registered Bull. Proud these Farmers were As they showed the visitors around the farmstead. Happy they were As they dreamed of sucking pigs that would bring them fabulous prices because of the costly sire. Puffed up they strutted about As they looked at their blooded bulls from whom they would have calves that would lift the mortgage off the old Home. You betcha. But they did not reckon with the Sharks of the Market. They had not paid attention to the returns they would get for their labor. And the county agent orders to him from big business meant that he had to keep hands off. To help the Farmers to get living prices for their product nothing doing. I hat s not his business. That a not what he is paid Tor. Ile is paid to get the Farmers to work harder and produce More but not to help them get More in return. Tile swag must remain with the profiteers in the markets. They must not be interfered with while they skin the Fannery not by by the county agent. So there you Are. The Story is the same. The worker in the shop and the Fanner in the Field must yield their body and soul in hard labor to pile up profits for the Idle robbers who find pleasure in nothing so much As when they can skin the producers and oppress the people. So now the banners Are in the clutches of the Market Sharks. No prices for Grain or livestock. It does not pay the Fanner to haul his product to Market. Better to let it rot. His farm mortgaged and he must lose it. He looks about to find a Shack for his family. He is Down and out just As the worker in the City. And the county agent must not help get better prices. It Isnit his . Of Farmers have right to organize think of it right in a headline of the Plute papers is the Humble admission that the Farmers have the right to organize politically. What is Loose have we come to this have we drifted so far that we Are actually going to get permission Fin the banners to vote the Way they please and to have candidates of their own Choice the press seems to be of that opinion. It is very strange. It gets on to the first Page. It is news. God and such news it is. It stirs the whole country. It is a scream. The paper that a a scooped this Story will brag Ai it out it for half a Century. Some a scoop a the idea seems to have originated in the brains of the nonpartisan govenor of Wisconsin. No we will not say that. We will say that the idea has been lost for several years and that he rediscovered it and had the courage to express it. During the reign of patriotic patriotism my Hundred percent ism there has been great danger attached to such utterances As have so courageously expressed by boil named governor. Had he been a common Man and said these blasphemous words in the state of Minnesota a year or two ago he would have drawn a Rumquist sentence of at least Folly Veals in the pen. We can hardly get Over the Shock of Joy that hit us when we read in the unashamed headline that banners have a right to organize politically. It is so wonderful of Over a month ago we Allied Public attention to the fact that the Minneapolis journal was running a tul Page sunday feature called a lessons in love a by Eleanor Glynn notorious English writer of sex stories. The series came to a sudden end and we were treated with an editorial recommending that the Fanner owned press should be suppressed. Last week the Pioneer press of St. Paul Minn., gave Eleanor Glynn a full Page to explain Why her novel a three weeks is not so bad because she has the sinners punished for their sins at the very end. How the journal and the Pioneer press As we Ell As some local people who take their thinking from these papers did hate free love last fall mum Mem atm a my i Mim ii i unum mini Reserve Board declared that prices had gotten too High and that a it was time to Call a Why then cannot everybody see that it had the Power to Call the halt and used it and continues to use it in other words How can there be any doubt that there is a Money Trust a new store in Albert Lea known As the.
