WJ-DlLYCc vumssmoi KEATING PRESENT BURDEN ON PROPERTY IS UNFAIR, HE SAYS Corporation tax Will Not Be Discriminatory, He Tells Chamber. "You must either make the necessary reduction of public expenditures or you must accept the alternative of a new form of taxation based primarily upon income," Louis H. Cook, chairman of the state board of assessment and review, told a gathering of Lions club and Chamber of Commerce members at the Hotel Hanford Wednesday noon. Mr. Cook's view was that substantial tax reduction was out of the question and that therefore an income tax is necessary because of the fact that the general propertv tax, by which 90 per cent of the state's revenue is raised, is rapidly approaching the point of confiscation. The speaker predicted that a general income tax, and likely a corporation tax, would be passed by :he present session of the legislature. Will Not Discriminate · * "The Iowa legislature, however, will not pass any tax that will" discriminate against 'Iowa corporations," he declared, adding that in his opinion the contention that a corporation iccoim tax would keep new industries from coming into the state had been exaggerated. Taxes is not the determining factor, but one of many factors to be considered by an industry In choosing a factory site, he added. "The present tax on real and tangible property Is making the ownership of such undesirable," he declared. "In pioneer days everything that a man owned was tangible and this fact gave rise to our present system of taxation, which approaches a situation in which a '"-~" '-""· -t*the,income Is confis- 25 or 30 years ago everybody wanted to own something, either a piece of land or a property in town, today there is a hesitancy on the part of everybody to own anything. Wouldn't Agree "Itv is clear that some new form of taxation must be adopted. What form that new form takes makes little difference. We know it is an impossibility to reduce expenditures. The tendency is to increase them. If we were to try to eliminate some of the expenses, no two would agree on what to cut out. At present 60 per cent of the taxes we pay goes to schools, 25 per cent for roads and 15 per cent for the upkeep of our city, county and state governments. ''It is unfair to raise 90 per cent of the taxes from, physical properties. In the first place there is a big diversity of ownership in physical properties. There should be an effort to equalize the differences in the earning powers of properties. "I never was any wild-eyed advocate of a state income tax and I don't think now that it would he a panacea. But, with all your objections, the income tax would be fairer than the practice we now have of basing the tax on property. I believe the legislature is going to adopt the income tax, but I am certain that the public is going to be disappointed in the amount of relief It will bring. But we must stop this mounting burden on property. . Valuations Decreasing "The valuations in Iowa are not increasing 1 , but are going down. Our wealth is less than before the war, yet taxes are from two to three times higher." "The United States is the only country in the world which raises the bulk of its taxes by a tax on property. In nearly all countries the standard of taxes is income." The speaker reviewed the efforts of the board to equalize present tax situations. "I believe we are going to be able to say in the near future that there is going ,to be no discrimination in taxes, that all property in Iowa is assessed on the baais of all other property..The tendency has been t put higher, assessments on th humbler properties, due largely t difficulty of evaluating larger prop erty in Iowa is assessed on the basi of all other property.«The tendenc has been to put higher assessment on the humbler properties, du largely to difficulty of eyaluatln larger properties, awe on the part of the assessor for larger propert owners and political situations. W also, have to keep in mind the fac that 25 per cent of all property t Iowa is exempt from taxes Need Not Fear. "When Iowa reaches the stag where the rank and file of her citi zens do not \yant to own propert then and then only will you hav a dangerous situation. As long a the people are attached to the so and to their hearths and intereste m the affairs of their communit you need have no fear of commun ism." The speaker was introduced by G E. Cress, president of the Lions club who presided at the meeting. Mu sic was supplied by the Rusty Hine- quartet.

Fischbcck When you buy a New England Mutual policy aa a depository for your savings you are buying more than any single security. You are buying diversification. You h a v e many bonds a n d many m o r t g a g e s -- in scientifically consid- e r e d proportions and-of carefully bal- a n c e d character. You are buying the combined investment skill of the company's financial officers. This skill is not seeking your money to increase their sales, to extend their operations nor to postpone liabilities. Permanence and security of the funds already in possession is mutually important to company and investor. Let Ralph W. Fischbeck explain this mode of investment to you. 1 WHY I AM A FORD DEALER, Because the Ford engine has such a remarkable oiling system. It combines the three principles of pump, gravity feed and splash. Part of the cut-away exhibit in our showroom includes a Ford engine with numerous sections cut out and encased in glass so you can watch the oil circulation as It is operated by an electric motor. The valves and push rods operate quietly and wear is eliminated because they operate in a reservoir of oil. Racing cars use the Ford oiling system because of its accuracy and simplicity, There are no complicated tubes or pressure veins to get stopped or frozen in a Ford engine. The motor will not run unless the oil pump is 1 working because the ignition distributor and the oil pump operate from the same shaft. There is a constant stream of oil on the main bearings at all times. Come in and see the exhibit it's in- terestiug.
