EDITORIAL The shortest day of the year will really seem so this year with Christmas business being better than for some time. One great virtue of the CWA projects is that much of the community's relief problem will be cared for and in addition some much needed community work will be done. Last five calls on the Malvern Fire department have been on country trips. The department is always glad to go to the assistance of any farmer or other out-of-town resident who is in need. Hopeful sign of the times Is that more buyers are inquiring into the quality of the goods they. buy. Buying at a low price is only wise when the price Is low considering the quality. Cheap goods are usually more expensive than qualify goods ,.aad e buyera who consider price ^"alone often get less for their money than do others. Nor does this mean that a high price mark is always a sign of quality. Few, no matter how severely realistic or cynical, can resist the happy appeal of the Christmas season. The throngs of merry buyers, the holiday decorations in stores and on streets, the gay coloring of wrappings, the infinite psychic help of buying things to give others rather than for' one's self alone — all these are a part of the Christmas season. Mankind simply cannot go through the motions of good will and generosity without becoming genuinely that way. The Christmas season purges us of unkind motives and evil thoughts. H refreshes the system with a period of actual good-wishing and with a true desire to be helpful to others. Throughout the season there runs the earthy manifestations pf the season. There is the commercialism and the natural hu- .tnan selfishness. But these are greatly sublimated by the better things of the Christmas sea- Our Best Christmas GREETINGS To You May the Old Fel* low visit you gener* ousjy, May the season's best be for you. May happiness and prosperity be yours thi-oughoult the com* ing year. Really uow, we could. Wish you UGtttiM better Mum that yau may be able to eajwy the comfort of We J, R, Cardwell *** son. For a day we are not governed by the old and still prevalent law of the jungle; of every man tor his own selfish self. For a day we are motivated by the true Christmas spirit, TMfe MALVERU mam HALVUM. row*.

It should and does nave an immediate effect on business by greatly Increasing buying. The whole program will undoubtedly push county business conditions up several notches and famish a big first step back toward normalcy.

Tax Scrap One of Best Since Road Fight of 1917 Say* Correspondent Correspondent Fnrnishe* Careful News Summary of General Assembly and Opinions Hot Necessarily The Leader's Like the famous good roads fight of 1917, the tax-revision battle of 1933 in the special session of the 46th General Assembly may go down in history as one of the keenest scraps of the century. When in 1917 the House of Representatives sat for days and voted 64 to 64 on good roads questions, the members got quite 'bet up." Now it Is evident they are getting some rise of tempera- ure in connection with the tax revision problem and some of hem may burst before the thing s over. And from this mist of minds may come candidates for governor and sundry other political offices, Round Table Discussions The most extended "round table" discussions ever held in connection with a legislative session In t Iowa took place the past week ln|the Senate. Interesting? Rather. No rules or little interference from the presiding officer, and a rough-and-tumble debate among the Senators in which no holds were barred, ,- , „ „ . ,*.,«, Several tax bills were under fire, and the purpose of the "committee of the whole" membership was to bring out all the points for or against any bill. Thus those sponsoring or promoting any tax idea were called upon to explain many things, while those opposed shot their bills full of holes — if they could. We must say for the members they retained a fine degree of good humor and, amiability under fire. / Five days of explanation and clarification have now resulted in a more to co-ordinate the several bills and try and pass one real tax revision measure — but it cannot be done in the five days before members go home for Christmas. House SJts Calmly The Senate excitement has attracted many House members to hear the debates, but has not influenced the House to take up formal consideration of the tax bills yet. A. motion to set Monday for this special order was sidetracked, members hoping the Senate would 40 something definite and save the House time and. trouble. In the meantime House bills are being passed or killed, in regular order, Just as though such bills have a chance of final passage. Replacement Tux Representative I,. D. Teter of Marion county has a bill, No, that goes straight across all fences and pitfalls to compel a replacement tax for the relief of real estate. "Section I, — Th^e total amount in dollars of taxes levied against any tract or parcel of real estate for or on behalf of any taxing district i« this state . , . shall not ba more than forty (40%) perceutum of the average yearly amount in dollars levied against such tract or parcel dur« controlled stores, prohibiting con* sumption of liquor on the premises where purchased. 3. Permits hotels, restaurants, etc., to sell 3.5 beer and 10 percent wines, only where food is also gold and consumed. 4. Provides for election to be held in towns and cities to vote on the question of permitting such sales (local option), 6. Requires all purchasers to obtain permits to buy' liquor at $1 permit, to be good for one year. 6. Will levy no state tax on any liquor, but provides for state profit on sales, Appropriates one million dollars for use of the control commission, to be used as a revolving fund to be replaced from profits and permits, And, of course, most of the present prohibition statutes of Iowa are repealed. Asked today when they thought the liquor bill would be out on the floor for action.' some Senators said, nofctM Mj^hf J&Ui day recew^M-therffthe 4 Tfre? works! House and I, H. O. ' In the House the last of last week the report of the committee named to investigate rumors and charges against the statq highway commission was heard with the, I general public barred from admission to the main floor. Hours were consumed in reading the testimony gathered by the committee, and then action delayed. Sentiment regarding this matter is uttered only under the breath. Representative Alesh of Ply- mou^b county has a special attorney working at a desk with him, in support of the charges, The attorney general has reported no competent evidence to support the Charges. Representative Durant of Win* nebago county is sponsor of another attempt to control the dumping of sewage waste in cities and towns. His bill, H. F. 159, would require waste treatment plants in all cities and towns be* fore January, 1937, in accordance with the regulations of the state department of health. !4cense JUive Stock Buyers More than 160 telegrams were received Friday by 1 Representative Burgess of Woodbury county, and many by other members of the House In support of H. F. 176, which would make a law licensing direct buyers of live stock, with regulations as tp weighing, grading and docking, in order to prohibit discrimination and unfair competition ta P« r * chases. The bill is said tp he |tat- ed to come out of the committee for passage.

These resolutions Would not have been snrprislng, eren it the administration itself had not provided the two feature speeches of the conrefttlon. ttefcit Wattaee v Secretary of Agriculture, had asked fof complete adherence to the agricultural adjustment program among farmers. George Peek, for* flier AAA administrator and now a foreign trade expert for the ad* ministration, had asked fof sap* port for the program. Secretary Wallace called the agricultural program temporary machinery for the ultimate object of a sounder economic setup for agriculture. He admitted the reality of certain defects in the plan, notably the pork processing tax which is lit effect being trans* terred back to the farmer, and some Important omissions, including beet cattle. For these defects and omissions he promised congressional correction, a«d promised ultimate reorganization of the program for longer term aims. Mr. Peek'* address was chiefly remarkable for his declaration of support of the profit system ot business. He denied any likelihood that the administration in* tended or would eventually at* tempt the destruction of the system. It was on his respect for the rights of business for self* determination and profits that Mr. Peek had incurred the opposition of the liberal aides ot Secretary Wallace which led to his retirement from the agricultural administration. Meanwhile, corn loans were rapidly going out to give immediate purchasing power to corn tanners, and early payment of advance benefits under the corn- hog plan was likely.
