(Photo By Mrs Al Hinckley — (UDM Engraving) RM Farm Bureau Head Asks Study On Tax Problems A recently completed tax study by'the Iowa Farm Bureau dram- jtizes the need for .property tax .relief in the state, 1 according to Glenn Gabrielson, Kossuth County Farm Bureau president. In Kossuth County, the per , capita property taxes totaled $127 in 1960. All of this was used in the county .except for a very small amount in state taxes for , the soldier's bonus. The 'study indicates that property taxes v are inequitable for many groups in the state when measured in' terms of ability to pay and the benefits received. He pointed out that farmers in the state receive 'only 15 percent of the income but pay 40 percent of the property taxes. From 1950 to 1960, farm population in the state declined more than 10 percent and farm income went down 31 percent, but taxes on farm property doubled. Owners of businesses in towns in Ihe county must pay iaxes on their business real estate and personal property as well as their homes regardless of the financial status of their business. "Farm Bureau has fought hard for property tax relief in recent sessions of the state legislature This new study emphasizes tut need for relief. We urge all citizens in the county and state study this important problem and support a workable solution in the next session of the legislature." Groups interested in learning more about the property tax situation in Iowa should contact the county Farm Bureau office in Algona. Farm residents, he pointed out, are strongly interested in pro perty tax relief. In Kossuth County, the per capita farm property tax is $193 compared to thr non-farm per capita property ta.\ oi ij> / o. One of the main reasons foi this is that a farmer's business requires a large investment . land, equipment, buildings livestock. In Kossuth County, the taxable valuation of farm land, buildings, livestock and machinery wa-i $48,060,100. That's 7'2 percent of the total valuation of the county Gahrielson added that of th total tax bill, 59.8 percent of th funds in the county goes t schools. City taxes—paid only b. city residents—receive 8.6 per cent of the money. Secondai roads receive only 17.1 pert-en of the total taxes. For count government, 13.5 percent of th total taxes is expended while th. soldier's bonus gets 1 percent. Two Algona Men Represent New Insurance Firm Two Algona men, Aniie Rit-klefs, and Charles McVay, have been up- pointed local representatives in Kossuth county to sell stock in General Life of Iowa Investment Co., according to Glen A. Jordan, -'president of Genera! I.ii'e of Iowa Securities Co. : Ricklefs and Mi.-V.-sy recently completed schooling at uie home office of the organization at Bettendorf. The investment company is the second legal reserve life insurance company to be formi-d in Iowa in the past 20 years. The men will also be local agents for the General Life of Iowa Insurance Co. when- it is formed alter gale of stock. Farmers Union Elects, Backs Administration A strong endorsement of' the Kennedy administration's farm program was given, Tuesday evening, at the annual meeting and election of the Kossuth, County unit of the Farmers Union. At the same time, A. B. Schenck of Algona was re-elected .president, W. .L. Reynolds; 01 Swea City was named vice president, and Art Larson of Armstrong was elected secretary- treasurer. Delegates named to the state convention in Des Moines, Dec 7-8, were Reynolds and Larson, Jim Coyne of Bancroft, Harley Troutman and Schenck of Algona, and George Patterson of Burt. In the resolutions adopted, the group said: "We commend and support the Kennedy administration in its work of trying to make the farmers income go ,up instead ot in and down we commend the Se- cretary of Agriculture for -work in behalf of agriculture. •"We emphatically denounce the leaders of the Farm 'Bureau Federation for their drive, to betray the farm families by wrecking a good 'farm program.•• "Furthermore we deplore the fact that Congressman Hoeven, who represents the area in Iowa in which Kossuth county will be relocated in the new congressional district, is a consistent opponent of the present farm program, and opposes the Freeman farm program to. protect farmers." Patrolman Retires A well-known area highway patrolman, Lt. Joe Dixbn, 55, Fort Dodge, announced this week that he will retire. Dixon, drivers li-> cense examiner for the patrol in the Spencer, Ft. Dodge and Cherokee districts, has been in the patrol for 26'^ years and was one of the 50 original members when the patrol was organized! in 1935.
