THE lOLA VQLUME XXXVI. No. 88. SuccasBor to Th« loU Daily Itegister, Tha loU Daily Record, wil lola Daily Index. lOLA, KAS., WEDNESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 8, 1933. The : Weekly Register, Established 1867 The lola Daily Register, Establiahed 1897 SIX PAGES FARMERS ASKED ORGANIZE IN lOLA SATURDAY Protective Association to Bel Formed at Memorial Hall Meeting MILO RENO COMING Iowa Farm Leader to Be a Speaker on Program to Start at 1:30 P.M. All;farmers In Allen and adjoining bounties are invited to be in lola at the Memorial haU at 1:30 p. mi Saturday for the purpose of orgarilzing a Farmers Protective association. This invitation was made ; public today by B. N. Baker, Sam Knox, L. R. SnodgrasSi and Ollie Sutherland, aU of whom are well known Allen county farmers, and who are backing the movement. Speakers at the meeting, which Its sponsors expect to fill the large auditorium to cajMiclly. will Include Mllo Reno, president of the National Farmers Holiday association. Rex Lear, president of the Farmers Union Insurance as.soclation, Jonathan Davis, former govem,or of Kansas, and Lon Wright, of Neosho Falls. A spokesman for the group which Is calling the meeting outlined the aims of the organization which is expected to be formed here on Saturday. He made it very clear that no highway picketing to prevent the . movement;of produce to market . would be- tolerated, and that the organization win be firmly opposed to anythng other than the orderly procedure of law. i Now is the Time. "There never has been a time." the spokesman , said; "when the farmers have been as willing and - eager to band togther in a common group in an effort to effect a common good. '••The purpose of the organization In brief is to secure a reduction of . taxes and if possible an Increase cf farm commodity prices. "The time has corns when the farmers must let their representatives in government, local, state, and national, know that unless' they vote for. proposals - to reduce ,the cost of government those representatives will not be elected. "'The farmers cannot make their views felt strongly enough unless they are united, and it Is the purpose; of this organization to provide a m^ans for that union." Tha four men who are sponsoring the movement in this area said that In recent weeks they have talked with scores of farmers and' have met with a warm response which leads them to believe that every one of the 1,500 seats in Memorial hall will be taken,when the meeting starts Saturday. Reno Noted In War. Heading the list of speakers is Mr. Reno, who comes from.Iowa. It was he, who. as president of the holidav as.snc(alion there, eoncplved the idea of every farmer'in Iowa, and eventually in the nation, declaring a holiday on selling his produce _,untll the demand for the drastically curtailed supply would : reach a high enough mark to enable the producers to sell at a profit. The movement galniid much headway in Iowa, eventually running/out of hand, with pickets blockading hlghwaj-s leading from farms to markets in defiance of the law. The as.sociatlon president, however, did not : encourage such drastic methods and worked against them, with the final result that picketing' was abandoned. The other speakers are all well known in this community, and, what they have to say will undoubtedly be of great interest to the farmers who attend.

(AP)—The Dale bill repealing the $3 poll tax, one of the oldest forms of taxation in Kansas, was passed today by the house by a vote of 88 to 18. The bill goes to. the governor. . Under the law. the tax must be paid by every male citizen between 21 and 50 years of age, the revenue derived being used to maintain towTiship roads and city streets. It is not appUcable in cities of the first class. In lieu.of cash, citizens are authorized to "worlt out" the tax on the public highwaj-s, being credited nt the rate of $1.50 a day for their own labor and $3 a. day if they use their own teams. In debate on the bill, •pponents of the tax said it was a "nuisance" which had outlived its usefulness and that it was not enforced in many parts of the state. Opponents of the bill said repeal of the tax would take from manj' town- .•shiDS one of their chief sources of revenue for road purpose.s. Other bills passed by the house included: The LcwiSTZiegler bill authorizing Montgomery county to issue a maximum of $150,000 bonds to fund its outstanding county poor fund warrants.

About two weeks ago Miss Tallcy procured an annulment of her marriage to Michael Raucheisen, a German pianist many years her senior, whom she married In 1932.

She expects to go back again in July. "How did the jjeople In Kansas City who had backed you feel about it when you quit the Metropolitan four years ago?" she was asked. "They didn't like it much. Some of them wrote letters about It," she. replied. ' "How did you feel about that?" was the next question. "Oh, I just decided you can't please everybody," Marion Talley answered with a: ghost of a smile. Topeka, Feb. 8. (AP)—Governor Alf M.

The governor had recommended a spale of passenger vehicle registration fees graduated upward from a 60-cent minimum. Publication Tomorrow. Upon publication, the bill will become effective.

Governor Landon's statement follows: _ ' "It is with considerable satisfaction that I sign the 'motor car license' bill, not because in my opinion the measure is entirely satisfactory, but because It Is urgent the people know at once what the 1933 motor car license lees shall be. "While I would prefer a substantially lower fee for light Inexpensive cars, as was proposed in my special message to the legislature upon this subject, yet the schedule as adopted will do two Important things. "First, it will effect a material saving to every car owner in reducing the license fees for 1933 to one- half of the 1932 schedule and will effect a total saving to car and light truck owners in Kansas of approximately 2 miUion dollars. Revenue Provided. "The new law will also provide necessary revenu'e which, with the present gasoline tax, should prove adequate to maintain our present state highway system and allocate to the counties their proportionate share of highway income, as provided under existhig law. "Therefore, it is. in my judgment, good business on the part of the legislature to dispose of this perplexing problem, and I consider it my duty to sign the, measure promptly. "Members, of the legislature arc to be commended for their i untiring labors and devotion to dutyi in carefully weighing all phases connected with this subject. The motor car license law, as is the case with much legislation, tea compromise effort, and represents the merging of many ideas Into a constructive and practical tax measure. "Alf M. Landon."
