PHONE 56S Responsibility of Citizens t Government Through Ballot Urged. That the tax on real estate ii Iowa, "for state and other pur poses," can and should be cut i :wo was an assertion by Robert W tolflesh, republican candidate fo governor, in a non-partisan addres lefore an assembly of Mason Citj msinessmen at the Hanford hole lionday noon. This tax relief, the former Mason 3ty boy explained, can be had hrough both a lifting and a shift ng of the burden. Arrangements ,for the meeting were handled by the Rotary club and numerous members of the other iervice clubs and the Chamber of Commerce were present on invita ion. Recalls His Days Here. The early part of the address was given over to a recollection of the lays when the speaker was a resi lent of the Odd Fellows home and 'ormed an acquaintance with many of those in his audience. "I find," he said, "that one item of training at the orphans' home itandr me in particularly good stead as a. campaigner. The grip I developed milking five or six cows night and morning enables me to hake hands all day long without ill effects." Education Must Go On. Mr. Colflesh warned agains' apathy in the individual toward the affairs of government. He decrie :he assumption of many that a de- jarture from the principles laid lown by the constitution is essen- ial to meet the present emergency and advocated a return to party responsibility in government. The new leisure in our new sys- em of economics, he suggested makes imperative a continued em ihasis on schools and education as a means of insuring an enlightenec itizenshlp, Would Cut It In Two. "I regard it as imperative," said tie speaker in launching hia discus- ion of Iowa's tax problems, "that ·e impose an immediate and effec- ive limitation on the levy which nay be imposed upon real property Xo one who owns a farm, a home, r any other piece of real estate can e unaware of the fact that our xisting taxation system is making hie ownership of such property un- esirable. "The levy of taxes on rea! prop- :rty for state purposes and the levy or other purposes can and should be educed by one-half. "One of the great defects, as I ee it, of our new tax law is the act that it does not specifically inure that it will in the end prove to e a replacement tax. I favor the nactment by the next legislature f measures which will insure that he new revenues being raised shall ring about a visible reduction in axes on real estate. From Other Sources. "This carries with it, of course, he necessity of raising from other ources sufficient amounts to meet ie cost of government Unquegtion- Wy further economies can he made i both state and local expenditures, eyond that, every effort should be made- to broaden the tax base in uch a manner that every citizen hall pay his fair share. "I believe that the principle of the ross income tax advocated in Iowa as many possibilities. The public lould realize, however, that it also as its limitations. The state, as a axing body, is bound down by cer- ain restrictions of the constitution f the United States..It cannot im- ose a tax upon interstate com- nerce, and the South Dakota gross ncome tax law has proved far from atisfactory because of this limita- on. Sympathetic With Gross Tax. "Supporters of the gross income tx will find me both sympathetic id co-operative in their efforts to ilieve the burden upon real proper'. To promise the property owner lat his entire tax will be removed simply to deceive him. To prom- e, however, that there shall be a al limit placed upon th« WopoH" x to be levied, accompanied by an fort to raise necessary revenues om other sources, is to offer a con- tructive program which has every robability of adoption. "A state or nation which, by its axation system, makes home own- ship undesirable, is facing the rravest danger of collapse. We mow that our property tax system facing a breakdown, and our ef- rts to abandon our old reliance pon the real estate tax have so far et with comparatively little success. Net Income Tax Falls Short. "The citizen or corporation enjoying a high earning power under eristing conditions should not object to paying a fair tax upon the . net earnings. The net income tax, | however, has its defects. It is not reliable in time of depression, when there is little income, while schools must be maintained, and the functions of government continued at all times. The power of individual states to raise revenues by a net income tax is also affected by competition with the federal government, and the limitations Imposed by the national constitution. "My first efforts toward assistance of the taxpayer will be directed toward efficiency in government. The burden of taxation is in large part measured by the amount of Co-Ops Help Develop Nation's Quality Sense By ENOCH A. NOBEM Globe-Gazette City Editor Associations of various kinds have done much toward making it easier for Mr. and Mrs. North Iowa to obtain "quality" especially on products from the orchard and the farm. Remember the olJ days when you bought a bushel of apples direct from the grocer and found out afterward that the big rosy- cheeked ones were on the top l a y e r o n l y , with a choice assortment of windfalls below. N o w d ays you buy a box or a basket of apples a n d usually find them to be uniform throughout, graded for size and coloring and the grade plainly indicated on the label. You know just what quality you are getting, under this modem system. And much of the credit for this revolutionary change is due to associations. Oranges, grapefruit, raisins, apples, potatoes and a host of other products have felt the elevating influence of this group effort and the public benefits. For while we may pay a bit more a pound or a bushel for the "quality" products we get more value a dollar without question. · And we find the same influence being extended to other fields. Associations of manufacturers in various linos are now doing or preparing to do for their industries the same things that have already been accomplished for the specialized farm products. We find mattress manufacturers agreeing to mark their wares uniformly to indicate the character of the' filling; rug- manufacturers co-operatively using a common seal or symbol to indicate approved standards of material and workmanship; canners' leagues, steel manufacturers, lumber mills and' scores of other industries all working toward the goal of better and more uniform quality, so marked that no one can be imposed upon. Some of these associations and some individual manufacturers guarantee products to equal or exceed certain standards of quality set up by the government Probably the day will never come when all articles can be rigidly classfied and marked to identify exact "quality" grades. But the movement plainly shows the growing public Interest in "quality." jy the method adopte"d. In addition to this, I favor far more reaching efforts to shift the tax burden from real property than have so far been adopted. Retail Tax Inadequate. 'A retail sales tax is not sufficient, and tends to impose too great a burden upon the ultimate consumer. As a revenue measure, its greatest advantage is the fact that .t gets the money. It bears no rela- Jon to ability to pay, in fact tends :o be a more burdensome tax upon poor than upon the rich. Emergency conditions may justify its im- josition, but -I am not satisfied with t as a permanent solution of our taxation problems. "It is possible for the state of ;owa to finance its government, both state and local, without destroying the incentive of its citizens to buy and build homes, to own and cul- ivate farms, or to operate Indus- :rial and business enterprises. Our ;ax system should neither discrim- nate against the citizen who does nvest in real holdings, nor place him In a tax exempt class. The cost of government should be borne by all." Eschews "Narrow" Viewpoint. "In my attitude toward tax re- orm, I do not intend to be narrow n viewpoint. I shall assist, in every ossible way, in helping to relieve he plight of the real estate owner and avoiding, at the. same time, the ivramiding of tax costs upon the armer and the worker." Urges Party Principles. The need for adhering to clean ut party principles was also advo- ated by Mr. Colflesh. He said that in a tour in recent weeks he had ieen surprised to note how many were saying they "voted for the in- ividual and were not members of a arty," Then he sketched the results in ertain European countries where men had been followed rather than arties. In Italy, Mussolini had tamped out freedom when he was made the leader, in the German re- ublic, Hitler is dominating every- hing and in Russia dictatorship is imposing its rule. "We need in Iowa to return to lat time when men stood squarely n party platforms," Mr. Colflesh ontinued. "We need a platform, not mere platitudes, but a clear nunciation of definite principles. Should Be Separate. "In our government we have de- arted from the belief in the three istinct branches of government, egislative, executive and judicial. Ve have been particularly inclined o combine the legislative and exe- utive branches. This is in direct ppbsition to the fundamentals of ur constitution." Mr. Colflesh expressed the hope ie primary campaign would be ased on principles rather than per- onalities. In this'way, he. said, the oters will be directly expressing ieir support for policies. The constitution sets out the lib- rty and freedom of citizens but oes not refer to the responsibility citizens, the speaker continued, here is a very definite responsibil- y in citizenship, Mr. Colflesh con- inued, and deplored the fact that ss than half the qualified voters ad expressed their desires at the allot. Voters' Indifference Scored. '"Our government," Mr. Colflesh ,ated, "is not a government of the .ajority, as was intended by the onstitution, but is a government of he majority of Minority. We must et away from the indifference of ur citizens." Pointing out that business in lany communities haa gone into a ·nonopollstic stage, he said that the endency towards monopolies of overnmenta by individuals should e avoided. In connection with the "New eal," Mr. Colflesh questioned nether or not there was anything eally "new" in it. History shows, e went on, that some 150 types of epublics had been set up and many had many of the game principles contained in the New Deal, but had failed because the individuals failed to perpetuate the true principles of representative government. Real Test In Peace. Mr. Colflesh said that the- real test of a nation was not in times of war, when patriotism was at a high point, but in peace. Politically, economically and socially the world has been struggling against the backwash of the World war in recent years. He hoped that in the United States evolution rather than revolution would be the result Reduction of working hours is bringing greater leisure time and consequently social problems. Educational facilities must not be impaired in such times, he urged. In opening his talk, Mr. Colflesh said that his return to Mason City this particular time had been much of a homecoming. Although it was 20 years ago that he left the L O. O. F. Orphans' home, where he was reared, he had been back every year because of affection which he had for the Institution, but on no previous occasion had his welcome been as warm as this time. Introduced by MacDonald. Mr.. Colflesh said that also In the race for nomination for governor was another Cerro Gordo man, Clarence Knutson of Clear Lake. Should Mr. Knutson win the nomination, he said, he would wholeheartedly support him In the fall campaign. B. A. MacDonald introduced the speaker. W. R. Hamilton, president of the Rotary club, presided at the meeting. He introduced as , guests Roy B. Johnson, commander of the Clausen-Worden post of the Amerian Legion; Leslie R. Whlpple, sec retary of the Legion post; L. P. Sanborn, United States internal revenue agent; W. A. Stubbs, superintendent of the X O. 0. F, home and Willis G. C. Bagley, president of the Chamber of Commerce. Music during the meal was furnished by a string ensemble from the high school, directed by Miss Marjorie B. Smith.

Operating throughout the year without a single lost time acident the Lehigh Portland Cement company of Mason City, has won the 1933 safety trophy, awarded anmial- y by the Portland Cement association, according to J. B. John, chairman of the committee on accidenl prevention and insurance of the association. With this spotless safety record, the Mason City cement mill and 1! other mills throughout the Unitec States and Canada join the growing ranks of "safe working" plants in At cement industry, it was stated At the same time it was announced ihat 37 cement mills repeated previous clean records, making a tota: of 49 no-lost-time awards for 1933 among the 160 cement plants en tered in the Portland ement Association contest. ' . ' Ig Large Trophy. The trophy, an eight ton sculptured monument, to be delivered soon to W. H. Patterson, superin- .endent, as representative of Le jigh safe workers, is a permanent award. If this plant repeats its safe record in coming years, appropriate ascriptions will be placed on the monument. During the 11 years in which campaigns for the Portland cement association trophy have been carried on by American cement mills there have been large yearly increases in the number of plants making accident-free records. Starting in 1923, only one plant reported a no-lost-tlme accident record This was repeated in 1924 and only two mills were eligible by the end of 1926. -From 1927 on, the effects of the safety contests have been from two to ten new awards each year, with the exception of 1931 when there was a loss of four. Lost No Pay. Not only eliminating serious injuries and deaths, an accident-free year means that plant workers lost no pay for absence due to accidents. Before the safety contests were inaugurated, workers absent from their duties on account of accidents lost thousands of dollars each year. "Twelve newcomers to the accident-free list and - 37 re-awards makes an all time record for safety in the cement industry," said A. J. R. Curtis, assistant to. the general manager of the Portland Cement association. "If there is anything the association likes better than giving trophies for new records, it is making awards to plants that year after year turn in clean safety reports. It is amazing, the results that can be obtained by a drive which constantly reminds workers that safety is the first attribute of an efficient, valuable employe. "These contests will continue indefinitely with the same vigor, and we know, with the same thrilling results." $6,610 DAMAGE ACTION IS FILED Fraelingsdorf N a m e d Defendent by Charles City Resident. Jerome Fraelingsdorf of Mason City was named defendant in a ?6,610 damage action filed in district court here Monday by Harry G. Turner of Charles City. In his petition Turner alleged that amount was due him because of injuries to his hack, three broken ribs and various abraisions on his head, face and body which he claimed to have received when Fraelings- dorf's car, in which Turner was a passenger, left the road and turned over several times after smashing a. culvert. The accident happened three miles south of St. Paul, Minn., oa U. S. highway No. 65 while the two men were returning from St. Paul about 10 o'clock the night of last Dec. 29, according to the petition, in which it is claimed that the Mason City man was driving more than 50 miles an hour when the crash occurred. The speed limit in Minnesota is 45 miles an hour on open highways. First Degree Work at Odd Fellows Tuesday A first degree initiation i.9 to be staged by Odd Fellows at the I. 0. O.

Hartzell Stands Convicted but His Swindle Goes on Decker Finds Texans Contributing $5 Now Instead of $1. Being critical of Baron Oscar Hartzell and his Sir Francis Draki swindle is still an unpopular activ ity in certain parts of Texas. Albert J. Decker and his five sons, who divide their residence be tween Harlingen, Texas, and Crys tal Lake, Iowa, have found this out to their distress since last No vember. Mr. Decker stopped off in Mason City Saturday on his way from Texas to his Iowa home and related some of his experiences and observations along this line. Sensed the Fraud- Early. After attending the trial of Baron Hartzell in Sioux City last fall in which the brand of unadulterated swindle was placed on the Drake estate by the federal court, Mr Decker and his family drove to Texas to begin their winter gardening. Once an investor In the estate hlmsalf, Mr. Decker awoke to the palpable fraud Involved in the activity and identified himself as an implacable foe of Baron Oscar anc all of his underlings. His views had been widely aired through the col umns of the Brownsville, Texas, Herald. Oscar Becomes a Martyr. Following the trial and conviction of the get-rich-quick promoter, Mr, Decker reasoned that his Texas neighbors who had been played fo: suckers would see the light But such distinctly was not the case, he discovered soon after his arrival at Harlingen last fall. The trial had served merely to establish the baron as a martyr in the minds of those whom he had fleeced and their eagerness to contribute to his cause had grown, Mr Decker discovered. The Ante Has Increased. "Whereas, in previous years, the promoters had been satisfied with a contribution of a dollar or two,' Mr. Decker related sadly, "they are setting $5 as the minimum now And they're getting the money too." Promoters of the estate, according to Mr. Decker, are still taking thousands of dollars out of Texas -some of it, he has reasons to believe, from men on the CWA rolls. "In other words," he explained: "the government's own relief money is being- used to line the pockets of Hartzell and his confederates." Chased to His Cabin. Mr. Decker and his sons engaged n the business of truck-gardening, with cabbage their specialty. They recently disposed of their crop for $2 a ton, far less than the cost of production. "It just about wiped us out," he Said. A few days before the family's departure for Iowa, some enraged nvestors in the Drake estate chased Mr. Decker to his cabin and ie saved himself from physical at- ack by closing and bolting the door jehind him. "I've about decided." he a certain percentage just sighed, "that of our people wanted to be swindled. If Baron Oscar doesn't get their money, somebody else will." City Manager E. H. Crofoot has been invited to attend a meeting of delegates of Iowa municipalities at ie Hotel Savory at Des Moines at .0 o'clock Thursday morning to dis- :us3 the collection of a 2 per cent tax on water' bills by water departments of cities of Iowa. The delegates plan to meet to work out the most effective and simple plan of collection.

Attention was directed at th« Chamber of Commerce Monday to the fact that employers are held responsible for the collection of the pension tax from their employes. The Chamber of Commerce received information from the Iowa Manufacturers' association calling attention to sections 34 and 35 of the act. "Section 34," it was stated, "provides a $2 per person yearly tax, beginning Jan. 1,1935, to be paid at the . time of payment of regular taxes, and also provides that the employer is liable for the tax in the event it is not paid by any employe who has been in his employ for 30 days. "Section 35 provides for a Jl tax for the year 1934, to be paid before July 1, 1934. It is therefore suggested, inasmuch as the employer is liable for the tax, that a notice be immediately posted on your bulletin board advising employes to immediately pay the tax to the county treasurer and further advising that such employes shall show a receipt for the tax or it will be deducted from the pay envelope or check in a May payroll. Any tax so deducted should be receipted for to employe and sent to the treasurer of state, State House, Des Moines, giving the name and address of the employe from whom collected. "No new employe should be hired after July 1, 1934, unless he or she can show receipt for the tax. This tax applies to all persons over 21 years of age, male and female." ment for injuries received March 20 in a fall.
