SECTION TWd lOLA, KAS., THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH 2, 1933. PAGES 9 TO 12 LEGISUTURE]^ SERIOUSWP FOR A CHANGE Absence of Wild Laws a Credit to Lawimaljers, Shultz Thinks (Special political letter to "Ilhe Register by A. L. Shultz^) Topeka, Kas., Mar. 1.—Tl^is legislative session will not be remembered for the laws it passed—barring possibly fewer than a half-dozen outstanding measures. But folks who talk about the 1933 legislature in the future and want to register appreciation of sanity, will mention this gathering for the wild laws that were not passed. I That Ls about the greatest compU- tneni that can be paid any legislature. There are millions of American citizens who wl^h they pould recall some such session of congress during the period since the primary arrived and party and principle - bolting United States senators were elected by direct vote. Yet if there is one outstandlne thing about this legislature, it is the fact that It has to this date and will probably continue to stand between loose thinking and ^ound reason." Inspected as a group of 165 individuals, this is a good legislature. There is a world of sound judgment among its members. There is another group that wants a legislative snake dance every time the gavel falls. But the great, outstanding chore of the session—as the legislative picture is presented during the eighth week of the meeting—is that quiet, undemonstrative, but determined stand against radicalism. Naturally xthere will be some legislation that upsets estabUshed customs. This legislature Is going to make some disturbance for organized business and interfere a bit with the salarj' earner, perhaps through an income tax law. It will penalize some people a bit harshly, no doubt, and on the other hand it Will cause others who have escaped any of the cost of government to pay something' for protection and privilege and opportunity. For. the first time In a third of a century there has been a concerted move to lower the cost of government by spending less money. Some of the salary revisions will have to be worked over at a succeeding Kasion. But this legislature has ' departed entirely from the old forward looking policy of relieving the .taxpayer through creation of some new f angled commission or appendage of government. Those reforms, taxpayers came" to learn, qierely created more political Jobs and cost more money and gave' politicians new isms to advocate In a campaign. MRS.

Very naturally people with money to invest are going to survey the course of state legislatures before undertaking development or buying Securities in various.localities. Under existing conditions it Is not at all difficult to frighten the Investor. Any course in that direction naturally brings a hardship to the borrower or to the Individual or business needing hew money or an extension of credit. More than a dozen bills have been presented to the legislature this winter which would have jarred the confidence of investors In the good, faith of the state. So if the legislature goes iiome without writing these meas- ijires Into the law of the state, it has probably accomplished more for Kansas than legislatures of most of the neighbor stat&. The, best method for conducting a survey of the Kansas legislative session Is through a comparison with other states. In the Dakotps, In Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma—all the mldwestem country—radical proposals, are being placed In the statute books. With the possibility of «jx- treme provisions In the income tax lawi Kansas is not likely to enact anything this winter that Is going to drive business from the state. There have been proposals which would have brought a general fire alarm in business: circles had they passed. But they didn't pass and I Probably the most dangerous bills affecting future confidence in the state sought to bring about a moratorium on debt and interest payments. Legislation of this character is not viewed as an aid to. the borrower. Consequently any tinkering with private contracts merely adds to uncertain or unsettled conditions. Escape -from drastic action at this time will probably work toward harmonious and practical solution of farm mortgage problems at an early date. Upholding of decisions against knock-down sales in mortgage foreclosures will likely bring its own answer. In the meantime a cautious state legislature has probably saved the state from serious Injury to her credit and complications which would have disturbed both borrower and lender.

'"'^ • (Answers will be found on page 11) ; Obviou.sly the legislature is decidedly lacking in organization and leadersiilp. Consequently the element of .Individual good sense Is emphasized. Those flowers cannot be distributed to everyone, but go to a majority in both houses.- There is little doubt but that most of the administration policies will be enacted before adjournment. Republican organizations have held unusually well; on all Issues where the Landon program was at stake.

That doesn't leave much opportunity for tangle and sndrl during closing 4ays of the session. "\ Tax limitation measures which now seem certain of adoption, will afford general relief to prbperty owners who have groaned under the weight of increasing public expense. Consolidation bills and measures wiping a bunch of political strap grabbers from the inspection departments win lower some of the cost of jjubllc business and' permit people to occasionally spend a day at their 'own affairs without interference by state snoopers. If the legislature gives to the state tax commission authority to readjust real estate valuations, there won't be much occasion for complaint down on the farm.

When his sedan got'stuck in a ditch he took off his shoes and walked two miles over frosty roads for a truck to pull his machine out of the rut. He got cold feet, but saved his new shoes. Announced by INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER Seventy cents a bushel^, for No. 2 hard wheat, Chicago delivery, 45 cents a btoshel for No. 2 yellow corn, Chicago, and cents a pound for miiddJing cotton. New Orleans--these are the basic figures of International Harvester's new Crop Price Guaranty oflFer to farmers. | The plan has been enlarged over the 1932 plan so as to cover all International Harvester farm machines except repair parts and motor trucks. I In announcing the new 1933 plan International Harvester says: "We believe that present crop prices will show a gradual improvement, and we abo believe: that if the farmer is assured a fair price for his 1933 crops, he will purchase the implements which he needs. We have decided, therefore, to give American agriculture again, as we did in li932, the assurance of a fair price for wheat, corn, and cotton on this yeair's purchases of equipment from us in so far as 1933 payments therefor are concerned." Come in and let us explain the details of the ^933 "^ce Guaranty Allen County Implement Co< 215 S.
