New Tax Cut Knutson Goal Says He Might Run Again to Get It Washington, (£>)—Another four billion dollar tax cut in 1950 is the goal of Rep. Knutson (El- Mum.), who said Wednesday he might run for congress once more in order to fight for the reduction. Knutson, chairman of the house ways and means committee, said last month he probably would retire in January when his present term ends. The 68 year old lawmaker now completing his 32nd consecutive year in the house led the drive this year for passage of the $4,500,000,000 tax cut • bill which sailed through congress over a presidential veto. "I want to complete the tax program I started in 1947," he told a reporter Wednesday. Knutson said the only major tax measure that would be considered in 1949 is the one for a technical revision of existing tax laws—estimated to lop off taxes by some $600,000,000. It passed the house, but failed to get through the senate in the recently adjourned congress. . However, Knutson said, "by 1950 this country should be in good enough financial shape to permit a healthy tax reduction." A drive for a cut of around 15 per cent m individual income taxes will be put on in 1950, Knutson said. He estimated that would result in a tax slash of about $4,000,000,000 annually. When it was suggested that his comments on tax plans for 1949 and 1950 indicated that he would run for re-election, the Minnesotan replied: "Well. I lean that way right now." He said he will probably undergo a gallstone operation in Minnesota this summer. He plans to leave for home Saturday. He will make a final decision while home on whether to run for re-election.

Day Takes Gavel as President of Rotary Club The gavel of the Mason City Rotary club was turned over to the new president, L. A. Day, and the past president's emblem pinned on George C. Senn at the annual, president's dinner party held at the Mason City Country club Tuesday night. The party was a combined event honoring ladies of Rotary and nstalling officers of the club for the coming year. Edward C. Jones was installed as vice president and* Kenneth Long as secretary of the club. Tables decorated with fern eaves and garden flowers were set up in both dining rooms to accommodate the large crowd of 177 lotarians, wives and guests in at- endance. A chicken dinner was served following which the tables were removed and all persons gathered _ the main room for the program that had been prepared with H. B. 'Hank" Hook as master of ceremonies. Rotary Governor Here Present for the occasion were Rotary Governor Dallas Harrison and Mrs. Harrison of Hampton and district governor of Rotary, the Rev. Cecil J. Semans of Estherville. Special entertainment was provided by the "Flora Dora" girls from Lake Mills and Joe Gannon, harmonica player, also from Lake Mills. New members of the club taken in since the last formal induction of new members at the Christmas party were given their formal induction and it was announced that the club now has a membership totaling 123. The program opened with a song toast to the ladies, "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," led by Clayton Wornson, to which the ladies responded by repeating the selection, the "Flora Dora" girls taking the lead. New Members Presented . Following this Charles E. Strickland introduced the new members and Carl Dwyer gave them the formal induction charge. Along with serious comments on Rotary in general, Dwyer noted that the club was "non-political though indications are that a few democrats belong to it." Before the installation of officers took place Gannon was presented as the "Larry Adler of North Iowa" in a group of numbers entitled "Harmonica Capers." His selections included "Sugar Blues," "Wagon Wheels" and an "imitation of the train leaving Manly for Ma- I L5, Blk. », A. T. Parker PI., Add. to M.

He was called back for an encore and played "a polka." Mr. Harrison was then presented with Mrs. Harrison in his "last appearance as governor of Rotary in Iowa." He responded briefly with the remark that he would "rather be a has been-er than a never was-er." Senn was officially escorted out of office with Rob Roy Cerney giving him the past president's pin. Cerney expressed appreciation in behalf of tho club for the excellent functioning of the club under Senn's administration the past year. Grows With Community "If a club grows with the growth of its community it is an excellent demonstration of the club's health," Cerney said. Senn responded saying that if the club had functioned well it was due to the co-operation of the work committees and pointed out some of their achievements during the past year. The new president was installed by Walter J. Walker. He pointed j out the civic record of the "colonel" both in past communities where he had lived and participation in business affairs and home life in Mason City. Day responded saying he hoped to serve the club in the same high tradition its past presidents had served it. Dr. T. E. Davidson introduced the district governor, Mr. Semans, who spoke briefly, his talk filled chiefly with anecdotes and references to various members of the club including the "voluble master of ceremonies" who had hinted that "speakers should be brief." Flora Dora Girls Here Last on the program was the entertainment by the "Flora Dora" girls, who lived up to their policy that "if you can go ahead and forget yourself and where you are from you can be a Flora Dora." Dressed in "attic" costumes they drew a big hand for their singing of such "pre-atomic" selections as "Only a Bird in a Gilded Cage," "There Are Women," "Drifting and Dreaming," "By the Light of the Silvery Moon" and a solo by one member, "Take a Little Tip From Father." Presented by Hook to the audience as "talent he had found in his meanderings through North Iowa," the quartet introduced themselves in one of their songs OR Mrs. W. C. Godfrodson, Mrs. H. W. Thomnson. Mrs. F. C. Streeter and Mrs. W. C. Bendickson. They were accompanied by Miss Margaret Karl who also played dinner music on the piano.
