PINE RIVER JOURNAL VOLUME X: No. 5 HK I'IXE RIVER JOURNAL, PIXE KIVER. CASS COUNTY, MINXESOT FR1I >AY. JUNE 28, 1946 Minnesota Political Roundup by - ■ Arthur Naftalin With tbe July 8 primary just lOdays away leaders of the Democratic- I arm er- Labor Party are urging the rank and file to stay in their own backyard and no.- be tempted into the GOP lists toy the contests over Senator uid Uoc. ■ernor. The DIM- leaders are fe.ufui that a sizable exodus could mean the <Jri*eat\)'f iome of the endorsed <amli- datos. If opmion polls are any jnaye, tli3 endorsed DEL contenders ivil1 mod •■■;] ti>' «> ;•; • 't they can muster to survive the vhut'.ry. On the surface public interest! continues to appear rather meager in this year's primary, .but there may be some hidden factors that could, bring about sharp upsets. One such factor is the record breaking voters registration in a number of. communities.' Iu Min. EeapoDds an all-time high in registered vuters was recorded, with 263,651 eligible to vote. Officials cite as reasons for this unprecedented filing the interest in the GOP Senatorial contest, the return of ex-servicemen, and the activity of organized labor in encouraging registration. A light vote in the Minnesota primary will be in keeping witli a: national trend. Contests elsewhere nave aroused only passing concern among the electorate. Apathy among voteis is a well-known phenomenon in periods of relative prosperity such as this. In periods of depression wthen protest is in the wind voting tends to increase. * * * » Returns to a questionaire sent out by the Minneapolis Mayor's Council on Human Relations reveal; that candidates for office in Minnesota are eager to avoid introducing issues of a racial or religious nature. Eighty candidates in the Twin Cities pledged themselves to refrain from such issues although five responded, unfavorably. Both the GOP and DEL- srate co'imnit- s pledged to avoid prejudice in their campaigns. Elsewhere over the nation issues reflecting racial anu religious tensions have crept into political caau puigns. Minnesotans will pay a two.cent per (package luxury tax on cigarets if a proposal recommended by the League of Minnesota Municipalities is voted into law by the 1947 legislative session. Reason behind the League's support of the tax is the desire to obtain half ot its proceeds for municipalities which are now so hard pressed for revenue. It is estimated that the tax would yield cities and villages about §1,700,000 and townships about 250,000. Famed War Photographer Coming Here Tom1 L ©chafer, war correspondent and photographer, has written to Ted Hill, asking him to . make arrangements for him to fish here rlgiit after the first week in August. He was trying to locate Ruby Johnson again, after being in war pictures work for four years, .his iletter staring thiJt he would like to go out to the old Waterloo Resort for a trip.Tf he could locate Quarters, he would also like to bring his mother along, to spend the summer and early fall here. Sehafer was. with the army and on battle ships, destroyers and all types of vessels. He was wounded in taking of Manila, but went on to Japan, where he was the one photographer for Acme Newspix who took the first photos of Hirohito ever shown. His letter to Hiill was very interesting, but showed thi-uout just how- much he'd like to return] nome, after four years with the armed services as a correspondent in practically every major operati -n. At its annual meeting, the League al 60 recommended an increase in the I "A state liquor tax, with municipalities again scaring the increase and an all- location of 30 per cent of the gross earnings tax ou utilites to the 1 ocal governments The League also proposed a constitutional amendment that would permit increasing the gross earnings tax on railroads from 5 tot per cent . Iu previous legislative sessions the [League's program has not fared too well. Legislators have displayed no apparent fear of the organization as a pressure group. Actually the League is potentially one of the most powerful political organizations in the state being made up of tiie top elected and administrative officials in communites all over the state. This year there are plans for a vigorous drive to persuade the legislature that some help must be provided the local governments or we face a breakdown in our entire struct rure of municipal! government. The secondary boycott is certain to he a prime issue in the 1947 legislative session again. The Minnesota Employ ers Association and the Minnesota Fe deration of Labor are competing for •attention of legislators and legislative icandidates The employers group asserts it is out to end what it terms "abuses'' toy 'organized labor while the (Federation charges that the employers are trying to "crush" labor Actually Minnesota lias fared quite well in its labor relations .compared with the rest of the nation A recent series of articles in the Chicago Daily (News hailed Minnesota as an "oasis" of industrial peace Minnesota resort owners are worried over the persistent reports .that vacationers cannot obtain accomodations. While imiany resorts anticipate many tfull periods, there are actually many availabilities at most of them. There are scores of resorts in all vacation areas that are running at less than capacity. Owners and operators feel that too much publicity about "overflow" crowds has hurt this year's business. TWO LEGISLATIVE CANDIDATES HERE George O'Brien candidate for reelection for Senator from the 52nd District, was in Pine River yesterday meeting his friends and voters in the interest lof ihds candidacy. He was followed by Can! E "Erick- son, candidate for Congress on the Republican ticket .who met a large number of the local people during 'his short visit here.

Modern Gas and Electric Ranges Stress Convenience WHETHER you buy a gas or electric range, you'll find that each has special advantages, Joan Miller tells rural homemakers in nationally circulated Capper's Farmer. "Whichever type you select," she writes in the farm magazine read by 1,250,000 rural families, "you A deep-well cooker plus large unit and two of average size give ample space for meal preparation on top of electric range shown above. Automatic timer may be set to snap oven heat on and off. Staggered automatic- lighting burners, including an extra-large one, are a feature on range for either gas or liquefied gas shown at left. Broiler has metal tray which may be used for serving. will find that generally the new ranges are convenient for quick meal preparation. They are good looking pieces of equipment which are easily kept clean. Purchasing a range made by an established, reliable company is your insurance of a good quality product, she continues. But it pays to notice or ask about these construction points: S, Top-of-range burners or heating units should be spaced far enough apart so they'll accommodate large pans or kettles. The oven should be placed where most convenient to reach and use. The broiler also should be conveniently located for placement of food. For ease in cleaning, look for porcelain enamel, inside and out. Toe space is important at bottom front edge of range for greater comfort when standing in front of it. In gas ranges look for Certified Performance models which are automatic, i) In liquefied gas ranges, check on whether the specified fuel has been odorized. This makes for easy detection of leaks.
