It was of course a pretty silly approach, but'It seemed to have made hay in some quart- The picture was presented then of the G.O.P. patty as standing solid against any tete-a-tete with the ftoosians. The democratic party was presented as one that seemed willing to negotiate or put feet under the same table with them.:-/' • .-; -:,• , •• • • \\ now appears that this effective campaign of the past 10 years is out the window. We are now going to have the head ROOD- ian as a visitor; we have already hdd some of our top men visit them, with more yet to go. So 1960 should no longer find the "soft on Communism" approach effective. No doubt there will be others, equally as foolish and equally as effective, to take the place of the one now going into the discard, but we hope not. Neither party has a monoply on ex- TAXES AND INDUSTRY In eastern Iowa, a small city has acquired three new industries this year. Seeking to find out "why", other cities have discovered that the tax picture is a pretty important one. I his particular eastern Ibwa city has a tax levy of $4J.28 for each $1,000 of property valuation. The average for 114 Iowa cities is $81.464 for each $1,000 of property valuation. Let's not kid ourselves that the tax picture Isn't important. New and expanding industry il going to take a long, hard look at a lot ot things m any municipality, and not the least is the tax rate. * * * SCHOOL DAYS ARE DIFFERENT How times change .... It wasn't too long ago that kids walked-or, if they were lucky, rode a bike-to school each day. some of our parents even rode horseback to school. . Those days, the distance most children had to cover was at least a mile, often more-and regardless of the weather. Those days are gone forever.

Today, high schools often must build parking lots to of motor vehicles their students things, doesn't it? TOO LATE TO HELP THAT TRAIN Northwood Anchor — All the way from Madison, Wis., to Canton, S. Dak., folks are mourning the neardeath of the Milwaukee Road's passenger service through northern Iowa and portions of Wisconsin and Dakota. Here and there chambers of commerce are making an attempt to forestall the execution, but the most they will be able to accomplish is further-delay and probably not that. The railroad has compiled convincing statistics about the thousands of dollars it is losing on the run. The commerce commission has been granting discontinuance of service on other lines which lost money, and policy isn't liable to change on this jne. , Many a town won't have any rail service .when the line is discontinued. For Mason^ City it will mean the elimination ,af> ^ftreW'lfcS^sfeniiJer' • service to Chicago. This is the pattern throughout the. nation. Everywhere rail passenger run's are being thinned out or eliminated; a year ago saw the last .passenger service on the M. & St. L. through Northwood; before that the C. & N. W. discontinued passenger service through Hanlontown and Joke. After all does it make good sense to run passenger trains when they're ny passengers? ; Yes, it's too late to help that Milwaukee train now. The towns so interested in saving the run, the people who want to ride that train, should have done theimgitating before this. And the only kind of agitation that would have helped would have oeen to increase passenger business. Luckily Northwood still has good rail pass- snger service on the Rock Island road. But it will remain only so long as it is patronized. Upper pea jHRomea ill E. Call Street—Ph.

The motor vehicle, then, can be quite a headache to schools. Nearly six millioh teenagers-many of them students-drive cars. They make up about 1 out of 14 of the nation's 80 million licensed drivers. A teenager driver is involved in- 1 out of 10 fatal auto accidents. Main fault of teens, according to the National Safety Council: a tendency to speed. n "Lots of teenagers drive to school today, l-h^fCowncjl-*' ao»d^^P.c)»^.nf9t*-tiM}?^f)^ryff u :P9 peoplei too" often get "an •urge> to^shoW" ''off around their friends.

"One way to bring down the accident toll among young drivers is for every student to take driver education, the Council said.^lt urged adherence to this drivincj code:,, '"' «- s 1. Be proud of your driving. Do your part to prove teenagers can be the best drivers on the road. ' 2. Smooth driving is the mark of a pro. Don't make jackrabbit starts, squealing turns and fast stops. 3...Be courteous at the wheel. Give the other fellow a break. 4. Don't try to get ahead of the other driver! or to even the score if he's inconsiderate. 5. Seepd is a killer. Adjust it to road, weather and traffic conditions. 6. Keep both hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. 7. Obey the law. Stop at stop signs. • 8. Keep your car in top condition. Give special attention to tires, lights and brakes. 9. Don't be a bumper chaser. Keep a safe distance between you and the car ahead. * . * * WHAT'S A DIVISION? , Mason City Globe-Gazette — Letter from "A Disgusted Father" to a-newspaper editor in Minneapolis: ' * . "With the American Legion convention here .this month, a letter arrived from our Uncle Jim telling us of his impending visit. "He's a World Wai; I vet and mentioned his Rainbow Division. Said my ,.8-year-old son, "Dad, what's a division?' I told him it was a large .group of soldiers. 'I know,' he said, 'But how many?' ,"Wc both turned to the dictionary which said: Division—a section of army corps consisting gener? ally of three regiments and auxiliary troops. I didn't, know how many were in a regiment, so local initiative rather than on direct (government aid.
