POUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DECEMBER 8 1933 LACK OF FINANCE CONTROL SCORED BY IOWA SURVEY Reorganizations Proposed for State by Brookings Institution. DES MOINES, Dec. 8. UO--A section of the summary of the report of the Brookings Institution, ·whose recommendations were made public recently, follows in this article, the eleventh of a aeries. State -financial administration In the financial structure of the state government, as It stood at the time of the survey, there was no single agency responsible for financial control, no central accoTint- ing office, and no published report containing complete information regarding the state's finances. Eight separate agencies shared the duties end responsibilities of financial administration. The elected state auditor, though 'declared to be general accountant had incomplete jurisdiction in thai respect; he was auditor of loca" jrovernments, not of state agencies and he had miscellaneous nonfi- Bancial duties. The state treasurer also elected, was charged with the receipt, custody and disbursemen of state funds; but he did not re ceive ail funds, and the major pari of the work of his office had to do with, the collection of the inheritance, clgaret and gasoline taxes. Bulk of Work Auditing. An appointive director of the budget was almost exclusively occupied with the periodic examination of state departments and establishments and with the preparation every two years of a budget report. The bulk of his work was auditing. An ex-officio board of audit was engaged in auditing: but a large proportion of state expenditures was excluded from Its jurisdiction. Financial control was also exercised by the higher educational Institutions, by the state fair board and by tie Soldiers' Bonus board, each of which was practically independent and supreme with regard to its own financial operations. The board of control did the accounting and auditing for the several wel- RUNDOWN, INDIGESTION, GAS?

Refinements In the design of tho radiator and hood and more luxurious interior appointments feature the appearance of the new Foril V-8 for 1931. Colored, fenders arc standard on all de luxo cars. Dual downclraft carburetion and dual intake manifold give grrentcr power nnd speed to the engine, increasing flexibility and smoothness. Gasoline and oil economy is also increased. A clear vision ventilating s|ystem prevents drafts and provides tho desired amount of fresh air in any weather. Ventilation may bo controlled by passengers individually. The easy riding qualities of the Ford V-S have been Increased by the nso of more flexible springs, improved shock absorbers and softer seat cushions.

Each of the five processes of fi- ancial control--budgeting; pre- udlting; receipt, custody and dis- ursement; post-auditing; and re- ortlng--was scattered among BBV- ral separate agencies. Reorganization Proposals Made. The purpose of the recommenda- ons made by the survey, some of hich have already been enacted to law. Is to bring similar activi- es under one administration, to eparate dissimilar. operations, to mplify the organization, to locate esponsibillty, to extend and tight- u financial control and to make it ossible in the future for taxpayers f Iowa to know the financial con- lUon and operations of the entire tata government. . :...· : - · · . · . ' · ' , The pi an ·;· of ^reorganization ,'· · sis* Igned financial administration to: 1) An appointlve s'tate* coniptroller, budgeting and controlling officer, 2) the elected state treasurer, harged solely with the receipt, cus- ody and disbursement of state unds, and (3) the elected state au- itor, to he engaged solely in post- uditlng. The Betting up of a new office and he reshuffling of functions are only reliminaries to sound financial administration. A real budget system must be established; proper proce- ures adopted and followed; uni- orm accounting installed and main- alned; duplications eliminated; auditing thoroughly done by qualified men; and all essential financial in- ormatlon brought together In one omplete and clear report. Need Is Shown. Financial condition and operations. Financial data have been compiled and are presented for try purpose of showing (1) Receipts and expenditures of the state government for the five year period ended'June 30, 1932, (2) operations for the fiscal year of 1932 and thi financial condition of the state gov ernment at the end of that year and (3) fund operations for the firs nine months of the fiscal yea; 1933. The financial tables presented in the report not merely throw light on Iowa's finances, but alsi show the need of reorganizing th accounting and reporting procedur of the state. According to these figures, th state was in excellent financial con ditlon on June 30, 1832; but unfor tunately the figures in this case d not tell the whole truth, since a of the state's liabilities are not ac counted for or reported by a centra accounting agency. On March 31 1933 there was, due to decrease revenues, a large reduction in th c*sh surplus. On that date, the sink Ing fund for public deposits showe a deficit of almost ?20,000,000, an the primary road fund, a deficit o uncertain proportions, but probabl exceeding $2,500,000.

The new Ford V-8 for 1934 is to e put on display Saturday in the Vagner Motor company showroom nd · 7,000 other Ford dealerships iroughout the United States, Edsel 3. Ford, president of the Ford Moor company announced Friday. As revealed at Detroit by Henry Pbrd and his son. to several score newspaper correspondents, ^.special writers and photographers, -the new Ford has greater power, more speed, quicker acceleration, smoother per- ornmnce, more miles a gallon, es- iccially at higher speeds and qulck- r starting in cold weather, plus reined body lines and a new built-in ystem of clear-vision body ventilation. The improvements in engine per- ormance are the result of the use if a new dual down-draft carbure- or and dual Intake manifold which ncrease the engine's power approx- mately 12 per cent and provide a remarkable improvement in pickup. Has Improvements. "The new car is the best car the Ford Motor company ever built," :he Ford president said. "Basically it is the same car as the hundreds ol thousands of other Ford V-8s now on the road. It simply incorporates numerous improvements in engine and chassis design, the new body ventilation system and refine ments In body styling and appoint ments which have been brought to a proper stage of development dur ing the past year in our engineering research." The new Ford ventilation system which is built into the body, per mlts clear vision, prevents draft and provides the desired amount o fresh air in any weather. Individua control is provided for both fron and rear side windows. The distinctive lines of the For V-8 have been refined in the 193 car by a newly-designed radiate shell, grille and other features. In terlors reveal new tufted uphol stery and garnish mouldings, cove-type head lining, new instru ment panel, arm rests, door pull and hardware. Sun vlsora are pro vlded in all closed cars, those In th de luxe cars being of swivel type t prevent glare both from the fron and sides. Fenders on de luxe cars now ar In color to harmonize with the bod colors. Wheel colors are optlona A new enamel finish la used on a bodies. This has greater woarin qualities, a more enduring luste and requires only washing to re store its brilliance. Bodies are steel, electrically welded one-piec construction. Eleven Body Typ c9 Eleven body types are availabl Included are both standard and d luxe types of the Tudor, Fordor, window coupe; the de luxe roadster phaeton and 3-window coupe, well as the cabriolet and victoria The victoria botly has been newly designed, to afford additional pas senger room. A large luggage com partment is provided in the rear. All body types are equipped wit safety glass windshields, while th de luxe body types are fitted wit safety glass throughout. One of the Important engine im provements is the use of water lin thermostats. These are automati mechanical valves which proven tho warm water in the engine from passing out into the cooling radia tor until the proper temperature 1 reached for maximum operating cf ficiency. In cold weather, the ther mostata enable the engine to warn p quickly and maintain an efficient unning temperature. Ford spring design takes advan- age of the principle of the trans- erse spring. It provides the utmost lability and safety, the practical ilnimum of unsprung weight with least possible frame distortion. The Ford spring design tends to revent the body from tilting on un- yen roads. Corners can be taken afely at relatively high speeds. Both front and rear springs are laced crosswise. This transverse esign permits free and easy ae- on of all four wheels because the prings are attached to the axles at icir outer flexible tips. Banners Problems of Disput:e Claim That There Are No More Frontiers in U. S. ROSCOMMON, Mich.--Residents of this small community, some 200 miles north of Detroit and located in a sparsely settled region of abandoned farms and Impoverished people, dispute the worn out expression of the nation's economists "that there are no more frontiers to conquer." They point with pride to the Rev. Charles W. Starr, one of the town's local ministers, as a living example of a pastor who imbued with the Scanning Latest Books New Germany Revealed in Hoover's "Third Reich." G E R M A N Y ENTERS THE THIRD REICH, by Calvin B. Hoover--That the Hitler government inaugurates a new chapter In the affairs of Germany, completely changes the International politics of Europe and exerts a powerful influence for the Intensification of the Fascist philosophy of government in other nations is the view of this author who appears thoroughly familiar with the aocial, political and economic movements in the central European countries. One gathers from this account that the National Socialist revolution in Germany Is a part of a world wide movement for direct action in coping with the depression, sentiment which received further Impetus in Germany by the decade long resentment toward the Versailles treaty. The movement in Germany is first of all intensely nationalistic. Laissez-faire la abandoned and all Industry, commerce and other activities subordinated to "the good of the community." Every effort ia bent toward making- the state as nearly self-sustaining aa possible. Private property is allowed to exist but surrenders the right to choose management and to determine profits. Insofar the government Is socialistic. On the other hand it completely abjures the principles of democracy, is hostile to proletarian socialism and opposes class warfare. In the light of the prevalent opinion of Hitler up to the time when he took over the helm of the government, the swiftness with which he organized the nation under his with opposition and his apparent strength in the handling- of the multitude of problems that have arisen come somewhat as a surprise. Hitler has surprised the world and most of all industrialists of Germany whose power and influence have slipped from them in the powerful Nazi drive to have the country again resume Its place In the sun. The spirit of the new Germany is esentlally militaristic, according to Mr. Hoover. It la preparation for war that forms the basis for the development of self-sufficiency. The greater Germany looks toward the east for additional territory rather than to the west or toward the Mediterranean, it ia pointed out. The manner in which Hitler is unifying Germany and stamping out opposition is similar although not aa severe as that used in Russia. The atmosphere of terror persists. Anyone not conforming strictly to the doctrines of the new regime are in constant danger of arrest, punishment, and confiscation of property, the author reveals The campaign against the Jews is more a spontaneous outbreak by the mass of the party members than the carrying out of orders from leaders that, at least, Is the contention of the leaders themselves, according to Mr. Hoover. That the new Germany--the third relch--is not a transitory structure but one to be dealt with as a permanent institution, which only defeat In war or complete economic collapse could dislodge is the -view of Mr. Hoover.--E. A. N. pioneer spirit and courage of the covered wagon days, has successfully redeemed the ifarkey Christian church of this town when everybody agreed It was "impossible," by adopting the unique plan of making use of sheep--the four legged kind --to support the church. Young Starr came here In 1926, asking for the hardest ministerial field In the state. He got what he asked for. To solve the problem of salary he persuaded the Ladies Aid society to raise $100 which he invested in an abandoned farm and a few sheep. From this humble beginning, the profits accruing from his growing sheep herd, derived from the sale o] lambs and wool in the past seven years, have not only solved his own salary problem but also served to provide much of the income to support his church. LIQUOR BILL TO BE READY SOON Chairman of Committee for House Plans Report by Dec. 15. DES MOINES, Dec. 8. CTJ--Rep- resentative E. H. Fabritz of Wapello, chairman of the house liquor control committee, and other members of the committee said today that they believed that the committee's liquor control bill would be reported out of the committee and ready for legislative consideration by Dec. 15. The predictions followed a meeting 1 of both house and senate com-* mlttees yesterday to receive a tentative draft of B. completed bill which if passed will repeal tha state's present prohibition laws and regulate liquor sales. The bl!!, according to reliable information, will contain provisions requiring every Individual to pay an annual permit fee of $1 if he desires to purchase liquor; provide no state tax on liquor with the exception of the present beer tax and give the state the exclusive right to sell all liquors other than beer. The revenue from sale of liquor by state liquor stores, it was understood, would be limited to ,10 percent, net. Liquor stores provided in an earlier tentative draft of the bill would be established at the discretion of the state liquor control commission, also previously agreed upon by' the committee. All members of the committees are not in unison on the question, of local option, it was understood, although some method of permitting communities to determine i£ liquor shar be sold seemed certain to be made a part of the bil. One committee member was reported to be seeking to write Into the bill a clause permitting the state to establish a distillery. Slace Its organization a dozen years ago, a California citrus growers association has spent $20,000,000 advertising its products. to Be Trust Results IOWA CITY--The "plight of the 'armers" Is a common phenomenon n the history of America. Agricul- ural depressions have occurred with ncreasing frequency since the pass- ug of the frontier, and the problem las, of course, chiefly centered' in tho middle west--the great food aboratory of the nation. The story told in "The Palimpsest," the monthly publication of the state historical society of Iowa. During tho eighties, increased production with Its attendant competition for markets caused the price of grains to fall. This development was accompanied rather naturally by an increase in farm tenancy and indebtedness. By 1890 tenants constituted almost 30 per cent of Iowa's farm families. Furthermore, farmers occupying encumbered farms In their own name made up an additional 37.53 per cent. That farm indebtedness was mounting is also evidenced by the fact that during the decade prior to 1890 a half million mortgages were executed to an amount of more than one-fifth of the estimated value of the land, including improvements. One estimate in 1890 was that 47 per cent of the taxed land In the state was under mortgage. The belief was current among the farmers that the depression was due in large measure to combinations, such as meat packers, the union stockyards, the line elevator companies, and the railroads. Thus was the fanner affected as a seller. As a buyer, the farmer had to contend with the barbed wire "syndicate," the binder twine "trust," and the farm machinery "combine." In addition he believed that the insurance " i n t e r e s t s " also discriminated against him. That rural dissatisfaction would in a democracy turn into political channels was natural and inevitable. The populist party was the answer. Many remedies for the economic ills were proposed--Inflation of the currency, free coinage of silver, withdrawal of privileges from corporations, income taxation, government loans to liquidate mortgages. The list seems remarkably familiar in 1933. Mrs. Ford Heads Society. HANLONTOWN, Dec. 8.--Hiss Bessie Ford was elected president to succeed Mrs. C. M. Kaasa In the Lutheran Ladies Aid at the annual meeting Thursday. Mrs. Ed Erlck- son Is vice president, Mrs. Leslie Larson secretary and Mra. W. J. Loveless treasurer. Let the clouds go rolling by LIME SPRINGS, Dec. 8.--Sev- eal strings of colored lights have been put up over the streets, and a large Christmas tree has been erected and decorated In the intersection of the streets. Each businessman has made arrangements to decorate his place of business. Santa Clans will visit the town on one of the coming Saturdays. WHEN you're healthy, you're happy J But when you're feel- Ing badly, nothing seems to go right. The blame for "blue" days can often be laid to common constipation. It may bring headaches, loss of appetite and energy. Yet the moat common types of constipation can be relieved easily and pleasantly by a delicious ready* to-eat cereal. Laboratory tests show Kellogg's ALL-BRAN provides "bulk" to exercise the intestines, and vitamin B to aid elimination. ALL-BRAN is also rich in iron for the blood. The "bulk" in ALL-BRAN is much like that in leafy vegetables. Inside the intestines, it absorbs moisture, gently extending and helping to cleanse them of wastes. Isn't this better than taking patent medicines? Two tablespoon/ills of ALL-BRAN daily will correct most types of constipation. With each meal in chronic cases. If not relieved this way, see your doctor. You can be sure of getting ALL t and not port bran, by looking at the label. Get the red-and- green package at your grocer's. Made by Kellogg in Battle Creek. IMPORTANT Kellogg'g ALL-BRAN ton- tains nothing but all bnn with a Email percentage of flavor. It Is recommended ni much more efficient in relieving common constipation than port-bran products which cannot contain u mnch "bulk." Keep on the sunny side of life O F B A T T I I C H E E K
