Come Thi» Year You should all be Interested In the election this year for practically every office In tho category — town, school, township, county, and state — Is to fee filled. The school elections come first and there aro two places to fill on the Malvern school board. Next comes the town election in which we elect a mayor, assessor, treasurer, and five councllmen. There should be a primary or a caucus or something of the sort held soon to decide on candidates for these important places. After these come the county and state primaries but we'll have more of them later. No More Gasoline I v *. ' Taxes Please The present legislature seems •to be terribly up against it In trying to evolve a taxation schedule that will please all and get the revenue required. Just now they are seriously considering an additional tax on gasoline. Just why they should select gasoline, which is already taxed way beyond any other commodity is hard to see. We do not believe they are Justified in adding any more burden to the users of gasoline. At present the tax on gasoline runs very close to 100 per cent of the original cost. Has any other article been taxed to that limit? Would they dare tax any other article that much? Last year Mills county people paid In round numbers more than $99,000 In gasoline tax. Three cents per gallon state and 1% cents federal. Now we have % cent taken off the federal, but do not feel that we need any more local added. Try some other commodity, gentlemen. Ease up on the gasoline user. Colflesh Announces for Governor Robert ColHesh, V. S. District Attorney for southern Iowa, has tendered his resignation and announces that he will be a candidate for Governor subject to the action of the Republican party at the June primary. Mr. Colflesh is one of the able young Republicans of the state and well equipped for this position and will doubtless make a strong race if nominated. It is to be regretted, however, that he saw fit to resign from the prosecuting attorney's office at this time with the big case he has on hand in which our Lieutenant Governor is one of tho principals. there have Men a few hi tfr* country who ftave go** ahesd even doting the lean years and advanced themselves economically.

Candidates are already trait- Ing Into the field. 0*n tfrrttet of Corning first tossed his hat into the ring Surprising, pet- haps, many who thought that no more republicans existed. Following closely upon Turner's announcement is that of Bob Colflesh which thus opens the way for a lively primary for the gubernatorial nomination. Democrats, too, are stirring In the field. James (Newsboy) Plerson of Shenandoah has announced to his usual many friends that he will oppose Otha D. Wearln for Congressional nomination. Congressman Wearin is announcing his own candidacy this week.

Should It do so, we need have no fear of not making able nominations. i Aft ill vvftrRl •»»•••«••*•• —•£ — -j| S VflfcM Hat* Am to ii%rtMtrt* eat***! ^^s^PsK^tJ^ 61 * 1 £3'S%5^ »** »**»jat«» t**i*«fo i frevet titve we seen tret* 6< mty General ABsemtrtt on History of the An interpretative news summary of the important events of the past week. By Glemlon Wlllliims fmlntstrator Hopkins to say that Great times for politicians this year! In Malvern voters will go to the polls four times, selecting officers In every governing body. Since hydro-electric power and Its development seems to be a vital part of the Jfew Deal perhaps we can get another dam across the Nlsbna Botna at White Cloud. Ogden Mills, one ot the prize conservatives of the late Republican party, made a liberal speech at Topeka. This Illustrates a great political principle: the party In power Is always conservative and the minority group is always liberal. 409 400 Iowa's finest hotel now offers lowest rates in (History.

If your business is a little slow and customers dropping away, don't take steps to remedy the situation yourself, but ask the government to do it. If marketing becomes too much of a problem on your farm, if the Income from crop sales only covers a part of the cost of producing the crop, don't worry about It but write a letter to the government. The ultimate effect this will have on the citizens of the country seems decidedly unhealthy. Can our citizens depend upou an outside agency to care for their more difficult problems without losing valuable initiative? This is not a plea for the type of rugged ln^ dividualism which must use doubtful und unfair methods to gain more than a just share of the return of production for tUat has been too well aired to ever again gain popularity. Doubtless a certain modicum of initiative will be needed even uuder a paternalistic system but will it demand enough to force the development of the individual? If this is lost the country will prosper only when Us leaders happen to so direct it. Should an unwise or tyrannical luader gain power it would tuko years to build back up an initiative strong enough to chuneu such a government. AH struiifK us it may sound Enjoy This Finer Quality "" SALADA On the night ot President Roosevelt's birthday citizens in thousands of American villages attended birthday balls, charity enterprises for the benefit of the Warm Springs Foundation for the treatment of victims of infantile paralysis and the prevention of the spread of tho disease. It was estimated that the total of benefit to the Foundation would be close to one and one-halt millions of dollars. On the afternoon of the president's birthday the president had signed the dollar devaluation bill, which gave to the federal government nearly three billions of dollars profits on gold stocks as the gold price was announced two days later — a considerable present to a government contemplating a seven billion dollar deficit for the current fiscal year. The gold price announced was $35 per ounce, or a devaluation of the dollar, nominally, to 69.06 per cent of the previous nominal gold content. This price, far above current world market quotations, Immediately started a flow of gold from Europe to test the good faith of the American government in offering to buy all the gold offered It at that prlc« This innovation In currency systems confused foreign exchange markets, and trends were mixed — but definitely a disappointment to the theorists of the administration's monetary plans Domestic stocks rose, however agreeing with the hopes of the sponsors of the program. Commodity markets, the chief objec- Ive in the program, refused to be much influenced by the moves, although they responded mildly :o the upturn In stocks. The bond markets were strong, presumably by the new definition of the monetary policy of the president, * « * * Indications of the ultimate effect of the program were lacking, except possibly that the upturn in the bond market may indicate some return of a financial confl dence which has been discouraged by a heretofore vague future for the dollar. The administration determine tlon to taper the extent of the CWA program to a definite termination by May 1 was evidenced by the introduction In the house of a bill to appropriate 450 millions of dollars for the work With the appropriation was an appropriation for 500 million dollars for relief. The measure was expected to be passed under a. suspension o the rules, which would block amendments by congressmen anx ious to continue the work Indefi-j nitely. * * * * TUft seuuttt investigation la air i mail contracts awarded during the last administration brought about the arrest last week of Mr. W. P. MacCracken, former assls* tant secretary of commerce for aviation, for contempt of the senate, in refusing to furnish certain papers in connection with affairs with aviation, companies. The investigation, which hfts heard testimony revealing peculiar disappearance of correspondence In the postofflce department having to dp with air mall subsidies and showing enormous profit* by promoters of aviation coiupunles, went on to examine offk'tuls of uvlatlou cowpttulep —- whu likewise refused to allow the access ta all tlvelv with tho government officials.

The president stated that the work must be made clean and cept clean no matter how powerful the political figures concerned might be. The- relief organization , announced that investigations were under way at a number of points and that prosecutions would be made wherever possible. In the meantime, control of CWA work at some points had been taken from local authorities and given to army officers. * • * « Tho so-called No. 1 public enemy at large, the long-sought Verne Sankey, was captured in Chicago last week. His alleged aide, Gordon Alcorn, was captured later. Efforts to implicate Sankey in the Lindbergh kidnaping case were apparently fruitless and he was sent back to South Dakota to face charges ot kidnaping Charles Boettcber of Denver, ttteh * hot Spot as the members ol this si»e«ai session seem to be. this "tax raising'' session is cost- Ing the state a big share ol all the *ew taxes that will be raised fn e*e y*af. Members ol the Senate hat* fcow threshed over three o* lout time* e»ety angle ol the tax bois i»r*se«ted, and ate still at It. And every now and then coiftes a vote which is going to fly back at them later on, ho matter which way they Jump. this allocation ot the proposed tte* taxes, tot isstance. Cities ol the state are crying out loud for a proportionate share ot what they get to what they will pay. But 15 or 20 members from city districts are not enough to satisfy that demand. In the House the cities apparently have no ghost of a chance to grab oft their share. Members regard farm and home tax relief as the big question right now, and those who do not tail in with that idea are likely to be replaced. We often hear members say, "Well, 1 never expect to come back here again, anyway, so I will do what 1 think is best." It you are interested, watch the record of bills passed by the House. That body passes a tot of thetn, and when they gel through there they are very likely to become laws because In a calm session between strenuous ones tho Senate may take them up and put them through also. The idea ol "soaking the rich" with income taxes came near prevailing in the Senate last week. Several times an attempt has been made to increase income taxes proposed in the big tax bill. This time by a single vote the proposition to pile a 10 per cent tax on incomes ol over $8,000 was defeated only because one senator was absent, and the proposition may be brought up again through a conference committee. Well, with a retail sales tax and a corporation tax grabbing the profits ahead ot the income tax,.there should not be much ot the latter to worry about. $3,000,000 IWUef Bill By an overwhelming vote early last week both House and Senate In turn passed the bill appropriating three million dollars for additional unemployment relief, A sum so staggering that our grandfathers said that much could never, be paid by, the state ut xuwei *"» *•*« •»-•—*---- , erected in the '70s. Now ft toes over easily because B. H. Mtrtoflc ot Des IJotnes, head of the unemployment fettet work In Iowa, explains the frtceatfty tor ft and they have confidence that ft wni not be wasted under his direction. By the way, speaking ol candidates tot governor — who said Elmer? The biggest problem ot the three million dollar appropriation is how to raise the money. Ways and means committees of both houses have been straggling over that question. They want to make it as painless as possible, and some look to the patient drivers of cars on the road as easy marks for this additional sum in the way of gasoline taxes. They are now baying about $30,000,000 a year for highway purposes and probably would not notice the extra $3,000,000 shoved into their tax bills. House Reduces Relief Wages In passing the $3.000,000 unemployment relief measure a motion by McCreery ot Linn county caused the only change in the House bill. His motion was to reduce the wages paid to workers «0f Rra- among tie «oto«i *** the state hfffti*.

Three other candidates are still possibilities tor thS Republican nomination, though it is Intimated Mayor Manning ot Ot- tumwft. arranged with Colflesh that he, Manning, Would stay out ot it. Highway Patrol Bill Weak A state highway patrol ot 38 men is proposed in a bill that has now been reported in without recommendation from a Senate committee. Another one is also on the calendar proposing a highway patrol thai would be under on public projects to 35 cents per hour Instead of leaving It 60 cents and up. The Senate refused the amendment and a conference committee of the two houses then recommended It. It went over by a vote of 79 to 9. Much criticism of the wages in this public relief works has followed since its Inception and this amendment, it is claimed, wilt afford nearly three times as much work for the money paid. Indications are that tho old age pension bill will yet pass and become a law. Opinion is rapidly shifting to the idea that old and dependent people have a right to help outside of poor houses. Where is tho Brookings Report? Numerous hang-overs remain quiescent awaiting favorable time for reappearance in both houses <— the Brooklngs report, for Instance. A searching party may havo to be organized to go out and find it. And then' the state highway commission investigation, which has seldom been mentioned since Fred White explained everything! Two Political Hats in Ring Two political hats were thrown into the ring in the coming governorship campaign, last week The first hardly made a. ripple the state highway commission. It may be possible this special session will conclude that there are tew things that might be left for the regular session next January to do, and thus sidetrack both patrol bills. Clgaret taxes paid into the state treasury have shown a gain for several months now, But that is not news. Anybody could see that was the case by observation in any eating place or when getting close enough to smell a woman's breath. : Forty-three states containing 88 per cent of the United States population possess shipyards.
