S-Alf*Ao (Id.) Upp«r Dti Molne* Tuesday, May 10, I960 tip? fle$lome$ CENSUS PROVES THE POINT If anyone had any doubt as to whether or flat the middle west in general, and Iowa in particular, was losing farm population, the first results of the I960 census verify the fact. In Kossuth county, Algona and a majority 6f the towns in the county show some population Increase. The strictly rural areas show a considerable decrease in population. If there were any surprises in the urban totals, it was the fact that Algona's growth in the past 10 years was not as much as had been expected, and that at least six Kossuth towns also showed some increase, which had not generally been anticipated. Five towns will probably show a loss. In a day and age when we hear so much about "population explosion" it is not entirely comforting to find that Algona barely gained, and that the county as a whole lost population, there is nothing to be elated about in the unofficial totals recently released. None of use can stay the hand of time, or would we want to retard progress. But we can Well ask ourselves whether or not there is "progress" in rural areas when the population totals are shrinking as the census indicates. All this talk in recent years about eliminating the "family farm" is no nonsense; it is a fact. The independent farmer who comfortably farms his own place in security is decreasing, and rapidly. Unless agriculture receives more intelligent consideration in governmental circles, and a farm program that goes with it on a fair and equitable basis with relationship to other segments of the economy, there will be a further drop in rural population. * * * IF FARM PROPS WERE CUT We have often remarked that in the Department of Agriculture, under Secretary Benson, the left hand seldom seems to know what the right hand is doing — or saying, for that matter. A few days ago Senator Ellender of Louisiana asked the department to prepare a study on agricultural income if price supports on all 1 farm commodities were reduced to free-market levels. The "free-market level" is something that Secretary Benson has long talked about as a near-Utopian situation for the farmers. The Dept. of Agriculture technicians indicated, in their report, that by 1965> net farm income would be cut to 48 percent below that of 1958 if supports were reduced to free-market levels. That is what Mr Benson wants — and his own department says that the above is what would happen to American agriculture if Benson gets what he wants. There is nothing like having a diligent person looking after the interests of American agriculture!

Well, let's go ahead then and reorganize our county government into more efficient units and create a new post — that of County Chaplain where the aggrieved and the afflicted may draw nigh with their social and political aches and pains and then, unburdened, hasten home refreshed in body and spirit and able to carry on through yet another tax season. As a matter of fact we might even have a visiting chaplain, and, as is the case with the welfare worker or the social security man, the chaplain would visit Iowa Falls or Alden or Buckeye on certain days of the week. These could be known as "bring-your- troubles-day" and alert merchants could no doubt make quite a promotion out of Chaplain Day in their community. There could be towels for those who must sob silently while they wait, and red bow ties for those who had had an unusually successful day with their troubles. And maybe the doctors and the druggists and the chaplain could get together on a kind of a "package deal", like the frozen TV dinner, for those who sought comfort both physical and psychological. And wow, what a day for the taverns! * * * OMEN FOR NOVEMBER Indianola Tribune—If you are one of the many democrats who have expressed a fear that the party may be torn asunder by the intra-party fights of these pre-convention weeks, perhaps you can rest a bit easier now. Conversely, if you happen to be a republican who enjoys watching the opposition party tear itself apart while your own party basks in the harmony of already 'having chosen its presidential candidate even before the convention takes up, it might be time to start worrying. At least, these situations might be so if you lake any stock in the theory that history repeats itself. In a recently published book, "The Politics of National Party Conventions," written for the Brookings Institution by three political scientists, are some interesting statistics concerning the advantages or disadvantages, as expressed by winning or losing, of having rough-and-tumble scrambles for the nomination, such as the democrats are staging this year. It was in 1832 that the modern convention system of nominating a president came into being. Since then there have been eleven elections when the out-of-power party (the 1960 democrats )had conflict in choosing its nominee. In those eleven cases, the out-of-power party has gone on to win the election eight times! There have been seven cases in which there was conflict among the 'outs' and harmony in the party then in office, and the 'outs' have been victorious five times. The bouk also suggests that it plight even be dangeruus for the party out of power to be cloaked in complete harmony in an election year. In the fifteen cases where this happened — the candidate ivas named with little or no internal party bickering — the 'out' party was defeated thirteen times. So, if you believe in statistics, or if you are convinced that figures can't lie, it might be fair to assume that this bit of "spring training" currently being carried on by candidates within the democratic parly will turn out to be a real asset. * * * EXEMPT HOUSEHOLD FURNISHINGS . The Waterloo Courier quotes one of the Black Hawk County Supervisors who has made a careful survey that it costs the county more 'to collect taxes on household items, including television sets radios, home freezers and air conditioners than the county gets in return in the form of taxes. Furnishings for the average home should be k'fl free of taxes. Many of them are. They should all be exempt. A home freezer and and air conditioner are as necessary needs in the home as rtig.s and carpels en the floor, And inasmuch as the survey in Black' Hawk shows the county is losing money in taxing household furnishings and necessities, it would seem like poor business to continue to assess this kind of property. Our State Ta.K Commission should abate this unnecessary nuisance and direct county assessors in the future to eliminate the assessment of household .furnishings. . * * ' * Now thai we've read how the federal inierstaie highway program has been abused in some slates and trickery and thievery used in billing for trie wurfc, we'd like 1 to also read just what happened to the crooks that did it.
