Seen at the ALGONA By T. H, C, Being neither a fisherman nor hunter, it is rather surprising that 1 should tike such ah interest in pictures dealing with these activities. Perhaps it is my everlating interest in Nature and all tnat it involves, that attracts me to Walt Didney's Ad venture series, the new TV show Daktari, and anything else that even mildly suggests the great outdoors. 1 missed all the publicity about Arctic Safari on TV and the radio and the only thing that drew me to the theatre was the short notice on the outside marquee "Show begins at 6:30." This being the zero hour, I sauntered into the Algona at the appointed time am was surprised at the size of the crowd that was gathered in the lobby. Arctic Safari proved to be a very interesting picture, well photographed, directed and nar THURSDAY, MARCH H 1966 - ALG0NA, IOWA Hughes, taxes in Carlson talk Oliver S. Carlson, who resigned as Kossuth Republican central committee chairman Wednesday night, gave a resume of issues for the coming election. Mr. Carlson resigned to take over the finance post for a five- county area. Mr. Carlson emphasized low ans are being double-taxed this year by the state and the money just coming has been allocated to projects which will require heavy additional spending and taxing in future years. Mr. Carlson said: "If you live in Iowa, this what the legislature has done to you; if you smoke, addec rated and white the second osts to ciagrettes, any gasoline liUCU, dllU WHIMS UIB reiUIlU ntt ^ nhn ^^ A inr ^^ nt!0 ^ „„,.* thrn. half dragged at times from re- pitition, it seemed to please the audience, comprised, mostly by sportsmen and their wives and cnildren. > I wasn't too impressed by the somewhat cold blooded slaughter of the various animals and the emphasis on the "trophy" angle but I guess this goes along with hunting and the sports minded fans didn't seem to mind it. Well, we're in for a solid week of Thunderball and from all reports (10 or 12 weeks at the Minneapolis Orpheum) it should prove to be a box office bonanza here. One thing is certain, it you go, you'll not be disappointed because you'll know in advance just what you are going to see. Personally, not being an avid James Bond fan, I enjoyed Dean Martin's "spoof" of all the series of impossible spy mysteries much more. I am referring to The Silencers, which comes to the Algona in April. Don't miss it but see Thunderball too. It's rated as one of the' six box of fice champions for February in the Motion. Picture. Herald. Others listed included Heroes of Telemark, which -I saw in Minneapolis and which included '.some- of^the.Vifinest Norwegian snow scenes ever photographed and The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, which left me out in; the cold too. Some of the recent TV programs, however, ought to drive tolks to the movies, no matter what the offerings are. —increased cost through taxes, driver's and chauf- uer's license have increased, in come tax burden through with lolding has been thrown on the mployer and employees—the employer and additional burden of the tax collector, and the employees have less take home, pay including any pay raise. "On poverty: Republicans lave always been the champion of the poor. We should not and dare not let men in national positions use money earmarked tor the poor' to be wasted in corruption or high administrative salaries, or to buy Democrat votes. "On taxes: Our national and state administrations have gone beyond all reason in taxation, It is ruining individual incentive to produce. Why work if the profit will go to salaries of government administrators, government waste and corruption. "There is nothing sacred about the present Governor. If you will give the facts to the people of Iowa, they will be current and intelligent enough to vote correctly. The surest way to win is to know you can win and work accordingly. "I would like to make a prediction. If we do not get our state and national administra- ions stopped in their present escalating socialistic trends our children will be so conservative .hat they will make Gotdwater ook like a liberal. And, why ihould these young people show any initiative or free enterprise tendencies if they will be taxed unmercifully for their labor?"
