Hft was paid that amount a*** a h*o-ytrOf period, fn« story related, as "an appraiser for the lands division of the department of justice." the .Wofk Involved appraisal c|f Irididri (and as 6 result of actions filed by var- i6us Indian tribes for claims Involving the land. We? don't khovr ho>V much the Indian tribes may have received, but in this case the white rncrrt seems fo' hcrve gat plenty of Federal wampum. ' ' '': • v The appraiser who received ihis money ran f6r governor in 1958, and was defeated. But lo, the defeat for the $20,000 a year job as gover- rfcr, led only to greener pastures, it seems. His Income as an appraiser made his salary from Iowa State University of $6,000 a year seem rather puny. ?'. We know if is a big country — and a big government. But is it any wonder, as the average citizen reads such stories, these and many others involving what seems to be fantastic expenditures, that we have many a taxpayer fudging on his income tax returns ? The average taxpayer is a good citizen. All he asks is a decent, practical use of his money. But day in and day out, as such stories appear on waste, extravagance, impractical expenditures, money thrown down the drain, it is understandable why there is a deep resentment and sometimes an uncontrolled desire to forget some income items in preparing tax returns. ;- It isn't good, and it isn't likely to change. But it is understandable. *, * *.,;,,> The cereal manufacturers art ferfiUfy', cirt- fused. They lead us to believe that children need the stuff for pep and energy.

Grundy Register — Former Vice President Richard Nixon in his speech at a G.O.P. fund raising dinner in Des Moines criticised the new administration in Washington and especially Ag ricultural Secretary Freeman because prices 01 farm products are too low and nothing is beinc done about it. During the hundreds of speeches the former vice president made during the past eight years of continuous falling farm prices, this is the first time he complained that farmers were not getting enough for their products. Prices farmers have been getting for their grain products since the new administration came in were set. by the outgoing administration. Higher support prices have been set by the Kennedy administration but these" higher prices wilt apply to the '61 crop. Corn prices have been advanced 14 cents a bushel for this year's crop. A bill tfiat is on the way for next year will advance farm prices much more. In his criticism Nixon stated that grain prices were much lower now than they* were a year ago. According to our market reports price of corn at Grundy Center on May 10th of this year was $1.00 a bushel. The same was paid for corn at Grundy elevators a year ago.

In the last ten years, according to statistics put together by Eber Eldridge at Iowa State University, 18 counties in the state of Iowa showed a decrease in total retail sales. Many of these counties also showed a decrease in total population and in farm numbers. These figures are even more startling when it is noted that there was on average increase in retail sales throughout the Uniled States during that same ten-year period of 25 percent. And right here is Iowa Eidright's figures show that the biggest increases in retail soles have taken place in counties that ha\e the greatest population growth or the counties thot have received the most industrial development. Deciming farm numbers is not the only factor which teras to hove a depressing influence on Ma-lr. Street business.
