ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1964 12 PAGES BY RUSS WALLER * * + This column finds Itself in slight disagreement with both the political parties Insofar as a state withholding tax is concerned ... the governor favors it, the democratic legislature seems to do likewise, and the republican legislative study committee also lends Its support to the Idea. The basic reason for advocating the state withholding tax is that It is felt many pay no attention to a state Income tax, and much revenue is lost. This we can understand. However, It Is also one more set of records and reports and payments to be made by employers, and that is Indeed a chore. The suggestion has been made that there be "frosting on the cake" by allowing employers forced to keep the records and make the deductions be allowed a certain tax credit for their efforts. Well, that's a shade more than the federal government allows and you even have to furnish your own stamps for the reports t But we expect to lose the argument I * * * After 50 years, Mrs. Emll Blerstedt of Fenton, and Mrs. Harry Grein of Windom, Minn., met recently. They are the former Erna Cade and Louise Wolf, respectively, and were old neighbors and schoolmates In the West Bend area, 50 years ago. * * * Someone has suggested that the main thing wrong with the cable T-V vote In the recent election was that It wasn't on the democratic ticket. * » * \ Memo to Virginia of Emmetsburg - It's "turkey time" again, so watch out for those giblets In the little paper bag stuffed Into the neck, which you missed last year. * * * Richard Krost, Farlbault, was rummaging around his house recently, and tucked away In a trunk he found , a copy of the old Algona Courier, dated May 18, 1894. The copy of the paper and story from the Farlbault Daily News telling about It, were forwarded to the Upper Des Molnes office. The Courier had the stamped name of "J. H. Knott" on its frontpage, evidently the subscriber. Mr. Krost of Farlbault was at something of a loss to know how the 1894 copy got into the trunk. First Session Of Financing Series Held VOL 99 - NO. 54 MAIL BAG: Letter from Algonan Wayne (Reb) Johnson, from Hllo, Hawaii, where he Is In PeaceCorps training, preparing for Indonesia. He is studying language (doesn't say which one), technical train- Ing In the athletic line, interspersed with a good supply of "shots" for various possible germ enemies (has had 21, so far). There are 17 men and three girls In the class, and Wayne says "believe me, we have the psychiatrists scratch- Ing their heads," Now - off to Indonesia. * * * Ran Into Dr. A. W. Amunson the other day, retired Algona optomotrlst, He had Just completed an Iowa City operation on his ears, and now wears no hearing aid at all - after wearing one for many years. A new type of surgery accomplished the feat of restoring his hearing. + * + One pheasant hunter reports knocking down a bird, but before he could get to it, a big, black labrador came out of nowhere, scooped up the bird and trotted rapidly away - toward home, presumably. Now that's the kind of a dog to have saves a man time, trouble and ammunition to just have a dog trained to bring home the pheasants. * * * Famous Last Line - Marriage is an institution which teaches • man frugality, regularity, temperance and other virtues he wouldn't need If he stayed single.

Judge Stillman Rules For F-Bureau In Company Suit A decision by District Judge G. W. Stillman of Algona, has ruled in favor of the Farm Bureau Federation and its stock holding of 500 shares, a majority, in a suit concerning the management affairs of the Farm Service Co. of Pocahontas, which includes Pocahontas and Humboldt county customers. The ruling has an effect on similar setups around the state. The Iowa Farm Bureau was not permitted to vote Its stock at the annual meeting of the farm supply co-operative in May, 1963. In his findings and conclusions, filed Friday at Pocahon- , ,tas, Judge Stillman also ruled that the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation is entitled to purchase an additional block of 500 shares of stock. Farm Bureau officials Saturday hailed the findings and conclusions of Judge Stillman "as a victory for all stockholders." They saw in the equity trial held at Pocahontas last January a "threat" to cor- porate business because the vote of a stockholder had been denied by company officials. The parent Farm Bureau has 49 affiliated farm supply companies in Iowa. In the meeting at wliich company officials refused to permit the Iowa Farm Bureau to vote, patrons of the Pocahontas cooperative voted to buy such wholesaled supplies "competitively." If the Farm Bureau had been permitted to vote, as requested by state secretary Kenneth Thatcher, the Farm Bureau would have controlled the outcome of this decision. Since that 1063 meeting, the Pocahontas co-operative has been buying products from the Consumers Co-operative Association of Kansas City. This company is a wholesale distributor of farm goods, as is the Farm Bureau's FS Services, Inc., and Is a competitor of the Farm Bureau for such business.
