»»,' i • Tu«day, January 23, PAGE WHERE IS THE STATE SURPLUS ? WHOSE BUSINESS IS IT ? Sideline observers will hot have to listen to fflueh W6rry about what to do with the state treasury ''surplus" in the coming year. yOl^n ^yernor Lby'eless took "office he had practically no state treasury surplus. By dint of conier'vative operation, and a willingness to say "her to numerous idl&tie suggestions of spending state funds, he was able to build the nonexistent surplus at the beginning 6f his term to something like 40 million dollars when he left office. ' In 1961. the State, of Iowa collected more tax money than in any previous year. It also approved a 'transfer of 30 million in "surplus" funds into the general fund so that the state surplus is now heading back from whence it came — the zero mark. The 1963 session of the state legislature will be forced 'to (1) reduce expenses, or (2) raise taxes iri various ways if it is to appropriate a financial total that keeps the state budget in balance. There isn't going to be another 30 million in surplus to fall back on in the future. The same administration which is responsible for this situation is going to ask reelection next November, We don't know how they will explain it, but let's not hear anything about the administration in Washington spending its way to reelection; looks as though we don't have to leave the state to find the same thing, and a different political party at that. '-.*** SWEET MYSTERY ON LIFE Our atomic submarine crews have discovered how to grow fresh vegetables while cruising far below the ocean's surface. The Vegetables are grown in hydrpponic garden kits, something l.ike a planter that looks like a flower window box. . . ..'.'' The seeds are planted in a chemical growth base and fluorescent .lights are kept on • them. Results: fresh vegetables. ' ^ • • •••" All that is fine. .' With the hue and cry that occasionally arises over this or that organization and its membership requirements, or its blackballing system, it was refreshing to read the comments of a Washington newspaperman who ''tit one time had been an applicant for membership in the Cosmos Club of Washington, but whose application was rejected. The Cosmos Club has been in the limelight because it failed to .act on an application from one member of the State Department staff. The , applicant, who happened to be colored, made quite a deal out of it and pfccourse the rejection was presented as a bias on the part of the club toward that race. • ^ The reporter, who was white, was also Dejected. He never did find out the reason. But his comments are worth noting. , > . . • He points out that It is entirely the',business of any group as to who it may wish as a new member. There is nothing that compels any club or organization or fraternity to take anyone tha applies. The rejected reporter, in fact, was no at all crestfallen, and freely conceded that club should have a right to select those it prefers for membership. There are times' when it looks as though all this furore over memberships in this and that is created by persons with inferiority complexes. To them, admission to membership is a way of soothing the inferiority; to be rejected just irritates the complex. Most of us would not care to belong to a group which didn't want us.

AN UNFAIR PENALTY? Grundy Register - The Post Office Department has been imposing an unfair penalty on newspaper publication in requiring the papers to pay for notice of a change of address of the subscriber. The subscriber who requires a change of address should notify the publication in advance or be made to pay the post office charge for the change. This unfair penalty was doubled after the first of the year. It is now 10 cents for every such notice which the publishers have to pay. When a publication has to pay for several hundred such notices during the year, it runs into an important item. The Iowa Legionnaire is printed in The Grundy Register office. Al Faber, editor of The Legionnaire, estimates that this increased penalty wijl cost that publication $75.00 a month. While The Grundy Register receives fewer such change of address notices, the total for the year runs into a substantial amount. The charge for change of address notices is an unfair penalty the Post Office Department is imposing against newspaper publications. If the Deportment considers such p penalty justified, they should make it against the subscriber who can avoid payment of the penalty by supplying the publication with a change of address.
