De$ (Homes GOPHERS AND ROSE BOWL The invitation to Minnesota to appear in the 1961 Rose Bowl game did not come as a complete surprise. Possible opponents for the University of Washington on January 1 really whittled down to Iowa and Minnesota, if the calibre of Rose Bowl play was to be maintained. It was only a matter of which team, Iowa or Minnesota, with Navy as an outside third choice, might be invited. On probably two out of three afternoons, Iowa would have matched or defeated Minnesota. Such was not the case, however, on November 5, when Minnesota won a decisive victory over the Hawks. Hence the bid. What is disgusting, however, is to have the faculty-controlled senate of the University of Minnesota authorize acceptance of the invitation, and then bluntly state it will continue to strive for removal of the Big Ten's so-called "permissive clause" which allows a member school to go to the bowl. "We'll go this year, but we don't want anybody else to go, ever." We hold no particular brief for the Rose Bowl itself. It is a gigantic promotion of a private west coast group in Pasadena; it has no official sanction from the Pacific Coast Conference. They are invited to send a representative team just as is the Big Ten. It is strictly a private, money-making promotion, with participating schools and their conferences sharing in the "take". Yet, if Minnesota administration" officials felt so strongly on the subject, all they had to do in consistency was to decline the offer. We are quite certain that the faculty senate at the University of Minnesota did not dare decline. The 'rank and file of Minnesota alumni and state residents would have really hung someone in effigy, from the president of the University on down. The opposition of the Minnesota senate faculty to the Rose Bowl does not meet with Alumni or state backing, but it has prevailed. Let us grant that the Rose Bowl is a big commercial enterprise. Yet the Minnesota faculty senate did not have the guts to be consistent; it did not dare refuse to let the Minnesota team go west. Yet it will do all in its power to prevent viny other school from going in the future. By oppos'tion to allowing any other Big Ten (cam to go in the future, the senate faculty committee of Minnesota has engendered a great amount of ill-will, both among other Big Ten schools and the Pacific Coast conference as well, and that attitude is not a popular one with Minnesota alumni. Yet, we suspect most Big Ten followers will hope the Gc.phers win — and under the circumstances, they better! * * * Every time you manage to get caught up with the Joneses,-they up and refinance everything. — Lake City Graphic. * * * A great many open minds should be closed for rer.uirs. — The Moville Record. it Upper Sirs j 111 E.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST THE "TAX RELIEF" MYTH One of the puzzles in this current pre- legislative month is the hue and cry of providing "more state aid for schools." This is based on a very sound fact, that real Estate property taxes are heavy and burdensome, and in some cases almost impossible to bear. But real estate property taxes ars all the result of three basic levies, county, town or city, and school district. Combined, they go to make up the millage levy which determines the real estate property tax. Now the suggestion is offered that "more state aid" should be given the school districts "so that property taxes can be lowered." Anyone making this suggestion seriously must have his tongue in his cheek. Any "state aid" has to come from someplace, and the someplace is the people themselves. So, we talk about more state aid as though it could be pulled out of a hat. The only way that more state aid for schools can be provided (after the present state surplus is depleted in the first grab) is to increase some other tax. That might be a higher sales tax, a higher income tax, a higher gasoline tax, or various special and hidden taxes, all of which come out of the people themselves. There is no secret hiding place where more state aid can be procured, except the pocketbooks of the citizens of the state. Federal government has a host of ways to raise money but state government is limited to only a few in-state methods. Real "estate and personal property taxes ARE high, but they are high because people want them that way. Nobody wants to do without any of the frills, or to eliminate some of the questionable and costly things that have been added to city, county, or school administrations. Nor does anybody seem to pay much attention to some of the outmoded and obsolete phases of expense that if we didn't have we wouldn't even miss. Think it over — you might recollect a few things that cost money but are useless. But one thing is certain. If there is more "state aid" for anything, school or otherwise, it will have to be provided by increasing or adding to some other form of taxation. It may come out of a different pocket, or in a different manner, but every taxpayer is going to be lapped for just as much as it costs to run his own city, town, county, school district and state govern- 3JROTOM XALA 20.YEHRS AGO; i j.»i Tuesday, Nov. 29, 1960 Alflona (la.)

The American people have spoken in large numbers and we now can only pray that wisdom and courage and sound judgment be given those who will bear the burden of office for the coming period. The next four years are going to be very vital years'- for our country and for the world. Sound leadership here at home will have a beneficial effect all over the world. It is our opinion, and while we are not the best informed in the world, we have read and studied, talked with men who have wide knowledge and with leaders of our country as well as the leaders of many other countries, that America is in pretty good shape in most areas. America has great military power. It has great economic power and it has great spiritual power. Wtih sound leadership we will go fore- ward nicely. All of us should here and now pledge support to those who will be at the helm in coining years. We should all pledge to ourselves, faith in ourselves, faith in our country — faith in divine providence. It is time for all of us to get down to work. * * *• DO AWAY WITH CIRCLE? Exchange — Many voters at every election get confused when they are handed an election ballot. So they take the easy and the safe way by placing a cross in the circle at the top of the ballot. Many of these "straight" ticket voters don't approve of all of the candidates on their ticket. They like better one or more candidates on another ticket. They are afraid if they try to mix their ballot that it might not count at all, so they play it safe by marking the circle which votes for all the good and not so good candidates. The circle at the head of the ballot is the easiest way but not the most satisfactory way One-half of our 50 states do not have a circle at the head of their ticket and the result is more independent voting.
