Dakota City School Chronicle (MsollftC One of the perplexities eonfront- ng lowana today is the continued upsurge ot gasoline tax collections in relationship with the continued decrease In the sale of gasoline to car drivers. Nevertheless, that Is the situation today; even With many gasoline stations closing all over Iowa. Treasurer W. (3. C. Bagley explains it In this manner: Increased use of gasoline by farmers and the heavy sale of it to ordnance plant workers In Polk and Des Molnes counties accounts for some of the increase but the big reason for it is due to the fact that tax collections on gasoline are made at the moment the gasoline Is shipped into Iowa. Thus, the tax may be collected from the Importer on BOO gallons I of gasoline May 16 although that importer may not get his tax payment back from the consumer until that 500 gallons is actually put into the station pumps some week or months later. At present moat major gasoline companies, anticipating rationing and lack of transportation facilities, are filling their storage tanka to overflowing which means that there has been no decrease in the collection of gasoline tax. j Thanks, Iowa j lowans were praised this week j n a letter from Sgt. W. James Ab- j rnethy, Chairman of Iowa Night, I or lowans at Fort Sill, Okla,, May j , His letter expresses it best: I "On behalf of the lowans at Fort lill, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the lundreds and hundreds of tele- jrams, letters and cards of greet- ng for Iowa Night on Thursday, May 7. "Your extreme generosity was witnessed In the receipt ot so many packages of food, candy, cigarettes, games, playing cards, looks, etc. "The state of Iowa was represent•d by no less than 175, yes, one uindred and seventy-five cities, .owns and hamlets. "The Iowa Night celebration resulted In definite success only because you lowans at home came through as we knew you would, and we are proud of each and veryone of you. I know it would mve done your »3art good to have tieen present among the Iowa soldiers here that night. "May you have much of the best during the coming days and years. Yours for an early Victory."
