As the lime draws nearer to cast my negative vote for a county hos i - pital. I as many others, can't refrain from expressing my opinion on the issue. No matter what you own. 'be it town or a farm, business or what have you, you are going to be taxed year after year for a county hospital. Why allow yourself to be imposed upon financially in a matter that you can control by a mere scratch in the negative square on election day. Even i'f you aren'l an owner now, you hope to be some day and you'll pay then. Sisters of Mercy hospitals are proven as efficient institutions. We are fortunate in being able to have this wonderful hospital -which will not change hands every now and then and is a permanent management affair. Since we arc assured of this hospital we would certainly be foolish to tax ourselves for a county hospital of doubtful size and efficiency. •Mrs. Philip Arndorfer WHITTEMORE MILK DRYING PLANT IN SUCCESSFUL YEAR The Whittemore milk drying plant received a fine tribute in a recent issue of the Des Moines Register that is well worth reprinting, and to which we can add congratulations.
