An Editorial A representative vote, sufficiently large so that It will be expressive of the majority opinion, of Wlnona, must be cast In the special swim- ming pool election Monday. The election Is the voter's opportunity, as provided by the state legislature and the city council of Wlnona, to Instruct their city fathers to build or not to build for this city a modern swimming pool. The voter, Monday, has the final say on this project so Important to the future of this city. On the ballot Monday Is Just one question, authorizing the Issuance of In bonds for the pool. A "Yes" vote majority means that the city council may borrow the needed funds at the prevailing low rate of Interest for future construction of the pool. In the lost three days, The Republican- Herald has presented to the citizens of Wlnona accurate data and experiences of four Minne- sota cities of Wlnona's class and size which to- day operate swimming pools as recreation fa- cilities. The mayors of these cities, men who have had experience with pools, recommend to Wlnona voters a "Yes" vote on the bond Issue. Tho pools In these cities are. popular going enterprises, operated successfully over a period of years. They have proved beneficial to their cities, and the youth of the community. They aro health-building projects widely endorsed by citizens of these cities. A similar endorsement of the building of a BwJmmlng pool here has come from Wlnona citizens. A year ago when a sentiment vote was taken on several pi-ejects lor the city's betterment, the voters favored the building of a swimming pool by to The Com- munity Planning council, composed of 112 Wlnona organizations, after an elaborate study, recommended to the city council Immediate construction of a pool. Parent-Teacher asso- ciations of nearly every school in the city have endorsed the swimming pool project. It has been widely proclaimed as a forward step In youth and recreational work In the city. Through special legislation, the Minnesota legislature and city council have now advanced the swlmnjing project to an actual vote of the citizens of Winona. Monday is the day to decide that a swimming pool should be built. It Is the time when citizens, parents and every voter interested in the future of Wlnona's youth can go to their polling place and cast a vote that will give their children, and all chil- dren of this community a modern, safe and sanitary to swim, eliminating lor years ahead the predominating worry of every Wl- nona mother as to where her son or daughter Is swimming. Thus, the Importance of voting Monday in the special swimming pool election should be clear to each Winonan. A "Yes" vote Monday will assure future Wlnona of a safe, sanitary and healthful place to swim and place this city on a par with other cities of its class in Minnesota.

Hichtower Washington European leaders wore reported today to told the State department that pro- posed recovery aid should largely be made available to European na- tions in dollars which they could spend cither inside or outside United States. The request differs with Truman administration plans whiclt would have most if not all the aid. deliver- ed to Europe in the form of goods with the actual dollars being spent mainly under the direct control of Uac American Rovernment. Franks Presents Plan Diplomatic authorities said the European suggestion was presented here to Under Secretary of State Hobert Lovett about ten days ago by Sir Oliver Pranks, the British; chairman of a committee of Euro- pean economic leaders who working with the American govern- ment on recovery planning. The European viewpoint is under- stood to be part of the final plan- ning discussions under way thlj weekend among state, Treasury. Ag- riculture and other high admlns- tration officials.
