He prefers to nibble on tiny plants Which we had flourishing in small pots on a bay window. Twice in succession, two thriving plants were eaten down to the black soil. The third 'morning, Mickey Mouse removed a little leaf which we had in a bowl of water and transferred it to the ; flower .pot where he apparently could better nibble on it. We were trying to start roots on the leaf but we have about given up. This Mr. Mouse doesn't fear our two Brittany pups who on those particular evenings, were probably snoozing on their rugs in the kitchen. GK and we watched the small rodent glide about the kitchen..cs we sat in the parlor. The master offered to "bat it down" with a fly swatter but we couldn't agree. If the mouse is smarter than we, he's earned a few days' romping, we decreed. Why do we always have to get such clever and unusual mice in our domicile ?

Therefore, the ultimate savings to the taxpayers, by reason of the 1961 Feed Grain Program, will be well over $500 million and possibly as much as one billion dollars," the Acting Secretary said. The October 10 crop report puts 1961 feed grains production at 4,008 million bushels as compared with an estimated 4,900 .million bushels without the program, a downward adjustment of 892 million bushels. We well realize that all of the foregoing sjs ar»,optimistio viewpoint from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. However, it gives the USDA point of view; most other statements regarding the program have an opposite or negative approach. This is at least a different point of view. And we hope it is correct. * * * OBJECT, VALUATION CHANGES Iowa Falls Citizen - Last week the State Tax Commission ordered a revaluation of property values in both Franklin and Grundy counties.

In the "old days" when counties were pretty much self-contained taxing units differing valuations (on which taxes are collected) didn't make much difference. Hardin county received no such request from the state authorities. The reason it didn't is because County Assessor Walter Guenther took the bull by the horns and put new valuations on Hardin county property last spring. Guenther, who served as auditor before being named as sessor, is one of the most knowledgaljle of county officers. He has a good working knowledge of ALL county government and is conscientious and fair. It is good to see his work given ap proval by the tax commission. * * ' * Incidentally, while speaking of valuations many taxpayers have trouble relating valuations and millage rates from one area to another And it is no wonder. Last week's Minneapolis papers, for instance, carried a story that millage rates in thqt city would hit 200 mills this year I (Iowa towns and cities think it is murder when millage rates exceed 1000 Yet the taxes, we,learned, on what might be a $25,000 house in Iowa Falls were only about $250 per year there in Minneapolis.
