At the county meeting it is expected that a delegate will be chosett who wilt f etc tesent this county at the state meeting called tot March ? in ties "Moines. Last week in Des Molnes over one hundred farmers and beef producers held an' informal discussion ot the present situation and they felt U was time for Iowa farmers who feed and breed beet animals to begin thinking ot their industry, ,K6 definite action was taken at the Des Molnes meeting beyond issuing a call for tbe state-wide meeting March 7. Because the state corn-hog committee had a state-wide or- ganisation the beet producers asked Chairman R. 1*. Evans to use his fleldmen to institute the local beet meeting, says W. F. Httbbard, local fleldman, who will be present at the meeting at Malvern. All farmers who raise cattle for breeding purposes or feed cat* tie should attend the county meeting and take a part in the discussions. Last year beef cattle •production was the largest in the 'history of the .world and with • ! " beef at present not a basic ..Industry there is a possibility of a serious further over - production which will mean a loss to cattlemen greater than has been expe> ., Tlenced' in the past unless steps itfio plan-a program are taken, . tt tie W«tf* ot fc«S«*rt 06 fctow» fw»*rd!ttf ,»*£ tot»s aftd campaigns for IKS fcew crof o* j&etttfeHSB.

Governor Herring's present session, already running beyond Its allotted time, is getting restless tor home fields and will probably adjourn this Week or next. To its credit the special ses •ion ot the Assembly can already count five accomplishments and will probably act on a halt do*en more before adjourning.

The term ot Dr. 3. W. Baer Is the only one to etplre and no one has announced definitely for the nomination as yet. The term of Treasurer R. W. Crlswell also ends this year and mast be filled by voters. Nomination blanks can be obtained from the secretary, R. W. Salyers, and must be filed with him before 12 o'clock noon Saturday. Blanks must have at least ten signers before they can be filed. Doings of the District Court February Term in Second W Till *' — Car Registrations Show Big Increase Over Last Season 111 Out of Storage; Total Up 411 in County on Feb. 24 New Deal or otherwise, • Mills county motorists are becoming more mobile in these times ot recovery. County Treasurer Otto Judkins looked closely at his ledgers Feb. 24 and discovered that on that date the county had 411 more registrations this year than at the same time in 1933. Several factors affect this. In the first place more new cars have been sold this year than last, Again some 111 cars which were stored in 1933 were, dusted off and put to use again tor this year. Even commercial. "cars. are March S District court continues its steady grind this week under direction ot Judge H. J. Mantc. The grand Jury finished their work the first day, Feb. 20, and had »o indictments to report. They were dismissed for the balance of the term. The petit Jury were also excused until March 6 as no cases were ready "for them this week. The week has been spent in probate matters and law cases, a number ot which hare been disposed 'of. R. K. Piper was given a Judgment in rem against Hazel Bateman and Ray Bateman in tbe sum ot 13,837.28 and costs, amounting to about |70 more, and against their 120 acre farm in Rawles township. Tbe report of the receiver for the Botna Valley State bank for the quarter was received and ap- glven to, settle- corporatlon net Income taxes and a retail sales tax and Is expected to raise enough money to eliminate the state direct levy and stilt have enough left over to dls< tribute some of the state monies locally. Under this Individuals will pay from 1 to ff*per cent on their Incomes, corporations 2 per cent, and all will pay a 2 per cent re- tall sales tax. Three million ot Ihe ten million dollars which the bill Is expected to bring In will go to poor relief, six million for state government and the remainder will be allocated to tax payers. Although Senate and House still have some differences to Iron out of their liquor control bill, It will probably leave a state liquor commission monopoly, 1600,000 to set up retail stores where needed, and regulations as to price and sales time. Also accomplished by the Assembly were banking legislation — allowing state banks the same rights as national banks — unemployment relief — three million dollars for this — and gas tax revision. Tbe latter applies mostly to collection methods and rebates. On the Assembly agenda are several points which they are exited to take up before adjourn- Corn-Hog Control J.

Soma of these will be carried over until the next i session, however. Senate and House have shown a tendency to disagree upon occasion and unless harmony rules the session might extend much longer, As it is. the session — in spite of admirable accomplishments'-—is generally unpopular, and few future governors will have tbe hardihood to call another except upon grave provocation.
