In Newsweek's last issue there is a para* graph stating that Candidate, Nixoh's speech writers are .preparing 'his 'talk to be £iven on , the farm 'pldhk of his -party at Guthrl&'Center, dnd thtit the speech is to -put Nixon dn record as favoring "flexible supports." The .paKdgrcfph added that this is rhore or less the same Ben- sonlan idea, but without Benson irt 'the picture. When Nixon makes his speech, it will,be interesting to find out how accurate Newsweek's forecast has been. • The Republican party's farrn plank speaks only of the necessity for getting "Wider markets" for agricultural products, this is d fine generality; Nothing is said about improving farm prices. In fact to get "wider markets" it might mean still lower prices. On that basis, election of Nixon could mean . four more years of dismal prices, frustration and dispppoiritrh'eht for: midwest fdrmers. >' It could also mean repetition of recent years. Nixon, even if elected, is going to have a Democratic Congress. This means that Congress can, as it has four times in the past five years, pass farm legislation to improve the agricultural picture, and then have each one vetoed by Nixon if he sees fit. Some Republican papers have harped on the theme J6f' "why xlidn't, the Democratic Congress do; something 'for agriculture?" They conveniently forget that the effort was made four •times/ and vetoed four times. The Democratic iparty's farm plank is to the point — it 'is committed to do -all in -its power 'to'improve farm income, and a'Democratic Con- gtess With a : Derrk)c'rdtic'preslde'rit jhas-a chance to succeed^ .. ,-, ; .< . ; ' ',!'.'"; ' "• • '• '•' *. : '''.'*•' -' : ' ' * -' '' ' : IMPORTANT AFTER ALL '* When'a report yas first ( Issued that two employees'of the ^National Security Agency had disappeared, an'd it was later •ascertained that they had gone to Mexico, then'Cuba, and finally Russia, via Soviet tanker, ,the matter was officially brushed off as of little consequence.

And "Mel" came up with a good one, too, showing that some of the 'Marine polish has rubbed off on him. Asked how it was to sit down to lunch with Jayhe Mansfield, Mel replied — "what's so specidl about that? If I were 'home I'd have lunch wifh my wife." This is goin§ to put Mel in solid back home, for sure, and now'he can look forward ! to hdving more phone calls. The Marines cover "a lot of territory, but are seldom out of reach of d telephone. There's nothing'like a U. S. Marine revving up in the Sandpiper Bar! • • * * * HOVV DOES HE FIGURE IT? ' 'In the general campaign against Goverhbr Loveless, hovv seeking a seat in the U. S.'Senate, we read with Interest where -Martin Lauterbach,_ former state tax commission chairman is blaming tha governor 'because '"propei'ty taxes 'have increased during his administration -at an un- precede'nted rate." The property taxes have increased, to be sure. But the Governor is not responsible. The property tax is a direct result Of the combined county budget, assessor's budget, board of county education budget, school district budget, -and city or town or township budget — all rolled together to determine millage levy and thus your property tax. Property tax 'is not the result of any state assessment, unless it be a soldier's bonus or something similar. : Mr lau't'erbach' certainly must know this. * * * • 'UNEARNED LAND PROFITS Exchange — "By accident," a $1.3 million land deal profit was made by Charles E. Wilson —former Defense Secretary dnd before that president of General Motors — and by his son. That was revealed last week by Wilson. He said his son in 1952 bought a Michigan farm for $250,dOO. Then, "to be near his son," Wilson bought 314 acres of adjacent. land for $240,000. This made a total purchase price of $490,000. Then, "by chance," the Chrysler Corporation decided it wanted that land for a Technical Center, and paid the Wilsons more than $1.8 million for it, yielding them a profit over $1.3 million. Most'people who make such unearned profits in land claim it was due to their "foresight," but Wilson admitted this fortune dropped into the family lap. The people who will pay for that profit- are the purchasers of Chrysler products. All unearned land profits add to the cost of production and therefore raise prices and the cost of living. * * * THE LAST STRAW — Iowa Falls Citizen — Alas, Iowa's Senator Tom Martin is making the embarrassment complete. All Iowa, and Republican Iowa in particular, was red-faced over Martin's nepotism and his holier-than-you-mere-taxpayer attitude about revealing the true facts of the case. Now, in the final months of his term, he is spending the summer abroad on an inspection of American cemeteries. Not that such junkets have not been undertaken before, by members of both parties, but it was to be hoped that the Iowa senator would have the good taste — in view of what's gone before — to restrain such impulses during his final hours in the senate. P.S. Naturally his wife is accompanying him! * * * If you go into the Smoke Shop There may not be much to do. But if you'll sit and listen You can learn a lot from Sty!
