They just do not have the tax base to operate them. Does Iowa? Yes, but it's costing more and more each year to do so. Property taxes that he has very wisely "trained" one of thc best assistant treasurers in the whole" state of Iowa for his successor. Mrs. Doris Springer, Republican candidate for Treasurer of Fayette County, has been Bill Knox' deputy for several years. She has learned all the requirements oi the job and has already demonstrated efficiency, high are rising and the cost" burden"of our own inefficiency Is ^"^ds and a genuine love of her work, becoming greater ^ ne " ay a 8tate tax inspection officer stopped in at Is their an answer?

In paragraph 4, we mentioned that this issue is The LEADER does not make it a practice to endorse touching the pocketbook of "Iowa" as well as its citizens, candidates down the line—even tho our leanings are From the statewide point of view, the lack of educational somewhat Republican—but, in the case of Dons Spring progress, where it exists, is largely due to reluctance to We feel We can heart,1 y recommend her to the people act in necessary reorganization areas. We have problems such as rural youth not getting in high school the advantages that many urban schools oirer their youth. We have retained the idea that the necessary fundamentals be taught and that fields ui lechnolgy be left for higher education. Today this is no longer reasible. But, in smaller scnools it is an econo^^c impossibility. We do not puoo by the iuct that there are some pretty lame" teachtus ai our schools, too. In fact, you've got LO educate the educators so tney can educate the kids. Jbut, when you struggle with costly and inefficient systems limited in their curricula, how can you afford the better teachers? in comparing the rural-educated youth with the urban-educated youth, we do not state this as a general truism thru the entire state. For our Iowa schools have produced some of the great men of our time. The examples are multiplied each graduation season, however. But, the great problem lies before us. A mounting number of youth, now being born, and others approaching school age, will spell out even greater requirements m tor the future. These needs must be met before the crisis % appears, not when it appears. If one single child must suffer thru our reluctance to act, then a great crime has been commited upon that generation. The promise of a free, public education has become a part of the great heritage of the present day Iowan. This guarantee must not be torn down by us. Almost every young Iowan has this education available to him today, but the variance of what each graduate has received is becoming wider and wider. Some seniors are prepared to go into the world with a broad background, others with only the fundamentals that have been available. If we have the chance to provide a vaster knowledge of special and general subjects at no greater cost, shouldn't we act? Our problem begins in necessity, is brought to our attention thru necessity and must be | solved thru necessity! of this county. We endorse her candidacy and hope she is the next treasurer of our county. Her record of the past is her only necessary platform! Besides Bill Knox splendid service as treasurer he leaves a donation in Doris Springer. This, also, is to his credit. ATTENTION HOUSEWIVES House cleaning is not far away. Why wait.
