In the- meantime, soldier's assigned'tti 1 protect crossings ahead of the con- vo'y, worried as to where it was, notified state patrols of Iowa and Minnesota, and a two-state search began for the missing trucks and men. The boys didn't have to teel too bad, however. There is a good precedent for getting lost. Job Stuart, Confederate calvary leader, was supposed to bring his hard riding and straight- shooting outfit around the Union flank at Gettysburg and at the opportune moment charge from the rear. Had he been able to do so, the battle might have gone to the .Confederates and With it the final victory. But' General Stuart asked directions from some farmer at a crossroads, and it now appears the farmer must have beep a pretty strong Union man.- Stuarfs cavalry went,'far out of its way on a Wrong road, and by the time they fjjund .out their mistake, and started back tow- dfd the scene of action, they were too late, and ajso rdn%to a • skirmish with a man named ^Uster of the,Union forces which further delpy- ecj them. ,, • ; ' ' . ? §o our army convoy that took the wrong road in 1061 has, a precedent In this mistake. "'- Just so our mistakes are confined .to taking a'fevf • wrong turns now and then on the highways, and net pushing the big red button without |ujt"cause," we might still make it to a ripe, IA/H6 MAKES UP DIFFERENCE .?._ t* the Iowa Tax Commission has ;grmpunced a reduction of $4 million in the assessment of Ca'flrotjd propirfy^fn loWa. f * ' This is ,-n?t too surprising, and probably not unfair- There are fewer miles of railroad operating/ and fewer stations, and fewer trains. it is not illogical that there should be less taxes. But these taxes are spread out in every county of the state. Each county has an assessment against each mile or railroad property within its boundary. Thus, the dip of $4 million in railroad assessments means that each county will receive less taxes from the railroad within its boundary. CS Ul B. Call Street— Ph.

That Is,the amount the International Cooperation Administration, one of ourigdvernment bureaus, came up short In 1969. No one seems to know where the money went, so they merely made a bookkeeping entry and chargea the whole thing off. This is a, superb example of how tremendous our government expenditures' are. For one thing no one can comprehend just how much $353 million is, let alone how to find an error of that amount. It also shows that when you are dealing with that kind of a figure, what is a few million, more or less. In other words we lose all sense of values when our financing is done entirely on paper. We are sure the communists will rejoice at the news that we: can lose $353 million arid be so unconcerned about so huge an amoupt of, money. It will support their thesis that we will destroy ourselves from within. We 'are much closer to that prediction than most of us realize. We are not at all optimistic that we can stop the march to oblivion. • • * * •*' ALL THE LIVELONG DAY Iowa Taxpayers Ass'n Bulletin — Henry Suburban reaches out at 7 o'clock of a wintry morning to turn off theiqlarm clock (price: $5; tax, 50c).

As a radio newscaster reports that Henry's- state is preparing to increase income taxes and impose a general sales tax on everything anyone buys, Henry slaps a handful of bay rum (prices $1.30; tax, 1 3 c) across his' jowls. He dresses quickly, hurriedly fastening cuff links (price: $5; tax, 50c) and tie clasp (price: $3; tax, 30c), puts on his Swiss wrist watch (price: $60; tax, $6), and rushes down stairs. Tucked under one arm is a leather briefcase (price: $25; tax, $2,50) which carries papers from his real estate Office, including one deed (property valued at $3,000; stamp tax, $3.30). In the kitchen he's just in time to snatch two slices of bread (at least 151 hidden taxes) from the electric toaster (price: $16; tax, 48c), lift his coffee from the gas stove (price: $190; tax, $5.70), and grab a glass of fruit juice from the refrigerator (price: $300; tax, $9). A glance out of the window shows it's begun to snow, so he calls to his wife (marriage license: $2) to telephone (monthly telephone bill: $12; tax, $1.20) for a taxi. Too many other people want taxis on a snowy morning, so Henry gets out his own car (price: $2,500; total taxes $518) grid drives (operator's license: $3) to the railroad station. Henry relaxes at the station with a cigarette (price per pack: 13c; tax, 15c), lit by a match (tax; 2c per 1,000). Aboard the train, he settles down to a hand of bridge with three cronies, using of course, a deck of cards (price: 40c; tax, 13c). In the city on his way to the office, Henry stops to buy a roll of camera film (price: 40c; tax, 2c) that he promised his son (registration of birth: $1), and the lipstick (price: $1; tax, lOc) he promises his wife. Because there are friends coming to Henry's house in the evening, he buys q bottle of whiskey (price: $3.40; tax, $2.10). Arriving eventually at thp office, Henry sighs (np tqx) and se»t|e» to g day's work (an- : nual income; $7,500; Federql and »tste Income $984). If He work* f«r the re*t of his life, he will be able to provide the government with q 'handsgme slice gf inheritance tqx, And if he dies in a state that is fiscally t9lergnt, he can take comfort in the thought that his cgsket •^provided it costs less thsrt f]§0~ ^will bj»> •«• empt from any sajg* tax.
