OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST KIDDING PEOPLE OF IOWA Indianola Record-Herald — We accept the premise that no taxing body should ever level more in taxes in a year than their actual needs require. The state of Iowa at the present time has a reserve of about $46 million and we can go along with Governon Norman Erbe that such a big balance is not necessary. However, if we dip into that balance to the tune of $30 million during the next two years Iowa will be left^with , a pretty small operating balance and the dipping in process will be all over in case of emergency. When the Governor asks for increased spending in Iowa to the tune of 1 8 million dollars a year and at the same time no increase in the amount of taxes we need to levy, he is only kidding the citizens of the state of Iowa. He will be putting them in a complacent mood of thinking everything is well in Iowa and that we can continue lo provide more arid better services at no additional load on the taxpayers. The cost of government is not going to go down and if present trends continue they will rise another 11 per cent during the next two years. Where will that find us in 1963? We will be awakened to the fact that instead of having to provide 11 per cent more in income we will need to seek 22 more because we will not have a state treasury reserve to cover the additional 11 per cent we are going to spend during the next two years. Is that being fair with the people of the state of Iowa? * * * Senator Bourke Hickenlooper has risen to the occasion and is finding fault with the suggested "hurry-up progrem" to deal with surpluses in agriculture.
