GOV. ERBE NOT TO BE ENVIED •jl^ GbverndV Wb'rmoh irb^ faeeS a rfafK&r difficult cours6 id navigating (he state for the next Hfo years. He is'forced IHio an expanded budget, yet piust expand the budget Without adding to the tax load. This is a rather difficult feat. { He has recbmmencle'd an incredsd ih the Mote bodget of about 18 million dollars, WITHOUT any tax increase. Where will this come from? ; The Governor states the answer plainly. He Will take it for the next two years fro'rri th'e' ex- llting state treasury surplus of around 44 million. Two time's 18 equals 36, whieh leaves about 8 million in the surplus unless the Surplus inherits new funds during the Interval, a most unlikely probability. Governor Erbe. has been frank with the State. He has acceded to various demands for more money, and is making an effort to increase funds for the much-discussed land tax credit: ^However, he also clearly warns that' the stale -surplus — the state reserve nestegg, if,you wish w|6 so term it — will be drdstlcally reduced. The •"state comptroller has warned the people that iless than 20 million ih surplus is dangerous to £the State. w The new governor indicates a willingness — to tackle this difficult problem of financing ••everything for everyone with zeal, and for "*fhat he deserves an "A" for effort. a. But perhaps the real answer will have to Jbe supplied by the people themselves;. So long JFK$ "LET'S 6O f0 WORK!" f^ow fhat We nave had time to digest the State of the Unldn message of President Kennedy to the Congress, how does it all add up? Probably everyone can Interpret it differently. We have talked to some who Indicate they think he was too pessimistic in his expressions. We have talked <6 others who say the 1 / think that — for a chdnge — the American people are being told pretty close to the truth about the state of national affairs after eight years of soothsaying. At any rate, fe'w could fail to understand just wKat the President was saying, and what he meant. To digest it into one sentence, it sounded to us as though President Ken'neSdy Was simply telling the American people: "Let's go to Work." Maybe he meant that it was dbttuf finie we got more "bahg for'a'buck", a little more lean and a little less fat, more" honesty in admitting that we have made mistakes in foreign policy which need correcting, that we have not entirely adjusted ourselves to trie 4 factthaf the race of fhe 19<$1's will not go by default to last year's champion. Maybe he was suggesting that it is time for .Americans to be willing to forget a little of the soft living, iihe 'whafs in'it for me" attitude, the assumption that everyone is entitled to top pay for shoddy work. • • Maybe he meant that mechanics are supposed to fix things, repair men are expected to PROM TkB FILES" 6P Ttffi ALGONA UPPER DES MOINES FEB. 13, 1941 A &ysleYtviHfe' e v <tsi.o'f ilie si6l *lika t e ift p e t A t U t es to tfMHVW «*»*?« ^ iW** „..„ tifneY wltH mbst high read*; 'Specials affertd1 b| <me of the iftgs during the past^ek fang- oeal jtoM^f- gtfebulk latd, a In! ffotn 30 to 38 d^rees.

' Our mail contained several clippings froYn readers and friends at distant points remarking on "the Algona angle." One inquired why, if things were so tough in the farm belt, was a citizen able to travel around the world. Evidently he had failed to note the California residence angle. The entire, weird event, will probably go down as one of the major news stories of 1961. And, to be honest about it, the passengers aboard other than the loss of time, have had a picnic — if they only knew it. They enjoyed 12 days more of a sea voyage than they anticipated, at no extra charge. They got to see Brazil, from whence they were all flown to the U.S.A. free of charge. And think of the lifelong "adventure story" they can tell their grandchildren. Highjacked at sea .... believe it or not... in 1961. BARBERS ON THIN ICE Indianola Record—Herald: We notice where a barber in New Jersey has come up with an innovation in the way he charges his customers for hair cuts. He has a graduated scale depending on how much hair you have. A man with a full mop pays the highest rate and the one with just a little fringe around the edge pays the minimum. On the surface this sounds like a good idea. Most businesses charge in accordance with the size of the job. Now what bothers us with this whole setup is who sets the price, the barber or the customer. We have several friends who simply will not admit they are losing their hair. In those cases, if the barber let them off at a lower rate would they be insulted to the point they would not come back into his shop? It seems to us this barber could be on thin ice. muncipal and industrial works. A two-year investigation just concluded by the Senate shows we now use 300 of water daily. This double during the next years and triple by the year 2, 000. The Senate group has alsc strongly urged that all problem dealing with water be consolidat ed so that they can be attackec in one big assault. This would in elude weather, evaporation, re moval of salt from water, pollu tion, underground reservoirs, i name only a few.
