Nearly every store reported a food Increase in business and, while prices were low and margins close, that a much more optimistic spirit prevailed among buyers. Hundreds sought relief ffott the hot weather by getting Into the cooling waters of the pool both Saturday and Sunday. In ftptte of the fact that nearly every boy and girl not more than 12 years old was admitted free, pool attendants said that receipts were good and indicated that the pool would have a successful season. Matty Enjoy Pool Pleased by the many improve* toents at the pool, patrons sloshed merrily in the sparkling water or lolled in the sands of the beaches. First accident of the season occurred Saturday when one diver, over-exuberant at the opening, broke one of the large diving boards with a mighty spring*. This was replaced befere the next day, ' Life guards Lynn Mullen, Tom Benton, Max Beats, and Russell Blggerstaff started the annual sun tanning, some of them taking too large a dose of the actinic rays the first day and obtaining a violent scarlet color instead. Operating the desk of the pool bath house were Mrs. W. W. Alstrope and Miss Frances Benton, Miss Gertrude Huey manages the lunch concession in the bath house for Mrs. Margaret Wilson. .Drink Pool Water L. W.

We firmly believe that the liquor business should remain ad it ii **"• outlawed. Legalizing an evil can never make it right, Legalizing the liquor business has never controlled it. The liquor interests recognize no law com fUcting with their profits. And repeal of the eighteenth amendment leaves the liquor business without any federal control whatsoever — with absolutely no indication or guarantee that the saloon wilt not return. The prohibitory taw has not been well enforced, Neither has .any other law since the close of the great World War. The laws against robbery, murder, arson, Opium and narcotic distribution, counterfeiting, rape, bigamy, gambling and many others are broken daily. Would repeal of these laws stimulate less offenses? Rather let us make an earnest effort to enforce all these laws, the prohibitory laws included, and make our country what it should be — • law enforcing and law abiding. Liquor is naturally an outlaw. Even though not outlawed by our statutes, it still remains a moral and social outlaw for it kills more men than war; it ruins more homes than infidelity and it impoverishes more families than disease. A great plea has been mad e by the liquor interests for the revenue side of legalizi ng liquor and licensing its sale. It has been estimated that millions of dollars in taxes would be added to the revenues of the United states and that this would reduce the taxation of other things, notably the incomes in the higher brackets. One of the Duponta claims that if liquor is legalized and taxed it would save one of his corporations $10,000,000 in income tax, by making the drinker pay instead. He is probably right in this estimate. But who would pay the tax? Primarily the man who buys the booze. Largely, his family who would be deprived of many of the necessities of life, the community lch latBBjfflight have to -' *P State Electorate to Vote on Amendment for Repeal June 20 Ratification Means Repeal in Special Election Tuesday Voting lowans will go to the oils next Tuesday when the spe- ial state election to name dele- ates to a constitutional conven- lon will be held. Delegates at his election will decide, theoretl- ally, whether the state ratifies >r disapproves the proposed na- ional constitutional amendment epeallng the eighteenth amendment. Actually delegates named will have little choice in the matter as they were obliged, before be- ng nominated, to state whether hey would vote for ratification or not. Thus voters can easily vote either for or against. Malvernians will go to the usual polling places, In the Community building and library basements, to cast their votes. Special clerks and election boards will preside, none of whom, however, will receive pay. No immediate effect on the status of national prohibition will felt no matter which way Iowa votes. Before the proposed 7; ; jE^ and other expenses. Granted that the Duponts, the T kobs, the Morgans, the Mitchells, et al would save their millions in income taxes. If you Would save this group from the burden of excessive taxation — by making it easier and legal for ordinary people to consume liquor — then vote for repeal. Furthermore, a tax of a billion dollars raised from the sale of liquor means that ten times that amount must be spent for booze which does no one any good and is a greater source of trouble than any other one thing in existence. This means that this great amount of money would be withdrawn from legitimate trade — the purchase of food, clothing, vehicles, homes, amusements, etc. Would it pay? Another fallacious plea of repealists is that it would do away with the bootlegger. A queer argument, We had bootleggers : long before we had prohibition. We have gasoline and cigaret bootleggers today, The bootlegger is a creature of tax evasion. He will exist as long as there is a tax to evade and as long as there is any profit in it. Legalising liquor will make it that much easier for him to get hia supplies and that much harder to catch. "Piere are boot|eggers galore in Canada where liquor is under government control and sale, and they do a thriving business, Incidentally, there would be no bootJeggers if 'it were not for the drinkers who are trying to beat the law, Another silly argument of repealists is that there would be Jess drinking done if the Jaw is repealed, In ether words, make it easier to get liquor and there will n.Qt be so muob of it used. This has pot proven true in Canada nor in any other countries. Per capita consump* t&n has increased eaeh year. We should profit by their experience. look the matter squarely in the face, Prohibi* eame solely besause the moral and political condi» fostered by the liquor industry became unbearable te fee majors^ of the people, A new generation does not know those, Conditions and many of the older group nnvt forgottta them, Yet* those same conditions will reappear if the eighteenth amendment is repealed with no regulation* Yfttirs who thoroughly consider this question will on next Tuesday march to the polls in mighty force and the bas?e question with a great vote to retain laws as J&ey am Then we must work for better Voters, it is up to you! o« aecouftt ol norm — forty-ou It w»j § record fer loug run it wftuld be really Interest t,a ftftte tUe va*t aux»uut of wle*.

But to one of the paclt of dogs Which occasionally makes the rounds With Night Marshall Jake Frazier the rain nearly brought disaster. As the dog padded along the street he stepped into puddles of water on the walks in front of the R. K. Piper garage. Yelps of path from the dog suddenly startled Frazier. He investigated. An electric cable in the cement In front of the garage had become exposed, charging the water oil the walk. The dog had been quite shocked. Frazier called Carl Paulson who Immediately came and turned off the current. The next day the cable Was repaired. on the question have gone for repeal. If you favor repealing the prohibitory amendment put a cross in the circle over the first column If you want to retain prohibition put your cross in-the circle over the second column. Earl Died at Home in Ctarinda Sunday Pttnefal S«nrices Held Tues* day Aftertioon; Burial in Malvern Cemelery Mrs. Earl Bayea. a former well known and greatly beloved resident of this vicinity, passed away at her home In Clarlnda Sunday, June 11, following a long Illness. For several years past she had been afflicted with an Incurable malady with which she bravely struggled, ever mindful of her family and loved ones, whose welfare was her greatest interest. But she was unable to withstand its ravages although everything possible to medical skill and care was done for her. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon, June 13, at 1 o'clock in the late home In Clarinda and was largely attended by relatives and old friends, about fifty driving down from Malvern and vicinity.

KARL WAVES State Loan Will Bring Huge Sum For Frozen Funds Will Releate $8.602.25 for Local School if Legal. ity is Approved Into Mills county shortly will come some $137,037 of public funds as a result of the $20,000,000 loan made by the state recently. The loan was made to release public funds now trosen in closed banks. Only step remaining before payment is the approval by the courts of the legality of the loan. A test case was started this week to determine this and if the court approves the legality the money will be sent out to the various taxing bodies Involved Immediately. Chief beneficiary In this county will be the county government Itself, as the lion's share of the county proportion will go to it.
