River Overflows Bank at Decorah; Property Damage Is Kept Low DECORAH--The Oneota river overflowed its banks Monday an flooded much of the lowlands, but very little property damage has resulted so far. The only road that is impassable is at the Freeport bridge where water six feet deep flows across the roadway. Dry Run creek which floods a large part of South Decorah, carries very little water. The heavy rainfall at Bluffton anc Burr Oak was responsible for the large volume of water carried by the Oneota. IT TAKES quality to stay at the top year after year.

DES MOINES. /P) -- District Judge Russell Jordan has ruled that premiums on annuity policies art. not subject to the 2V4 per cent Iowa insurance tax and enjoined the state from collecting the tax. The decision was given in a test suit brought by the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance company, against Insurance Commissioner Ray Murphy, State Treasurer Leo J. Wegman'and State Comptroller C. B. Murtagh. Judge Jordan also instructed the state to give the insurance company credit for $5,235.07 in annuity premium taxes paid by the company under protest during 1934. Since the decision prevents the state from collecting approximately a quarter million dollars in revenue, state's attorneys indicated the case would be carried to the Iowa supreme court. Judge Jordan said in his opinion that five courts in the United States have held that annuity premiums are not taxable as insurance. Candidates Obtain Nomination Papers DES MOINES, OP)--State Senator Carl Aschenbrenner (D.) of Pella Tuesday obtained papers to seek renomination and four candidates for the Iowa house of representatives were issued nomination papers by the secretary of state here. They were A. M. Bumside (R.) of Boone, Eugene H. Reilly (D.) of Dubuque, W. J. Johannes (D.) of Ashton and Jesse Huddle of Wapello. POLICY "BORROW, BOOM AND BUST" Dickinson Declares Common Sense Abandoned by New Deal. CLEVELAND, (/PI--Senator Dickinson of Iowa, an avowed candidate for the republican presidential nomination, said Tueortay the new deaJ had abandoned common sense and thrift for a policy of "borrow, boom and bust." "I propose as a substitute a program which may not be nearly so exciting, but should at least guarantee safe arrival at port." he asserted. "Expressed simply, it is that we quit borrowing and spending and spending and settle clown while we settle up the nation's obligations." Failed to Learn. Addressing a chamber of commerce luncheon, Dickinson said the administration had failed to learn any lessons from the supreme court rulings against NKA and AAA as demonstrated by President Roosevelt's proposed new tax program. "Its approach to the problem is political rather than economic. It aims to force distribution of what the president calls 'idle capital'; but what it really does is to lay the greedy hands of the tax-gathered upon reserves put by for a 'rainy day.' x x x It is in effect, no matter how disguised, nothing less than a capital levy. Yet this revolutionary and far-reaching readjustment of a basic factor in our business economy is proposed without the slightest apparent realization of its ultimate effects. Serious Hardships. "It imposes serious hardships upon the small business man, who must finance expansion of plant or sales activities, not by borrowing, but out of his earnings. It thus restricts new enterprise and curtails employment, at the very time the president is calling upon industry to accept fresh responsibilities. "It harms labor by destroying the cushion which maintains wage levels during the unprosperous years. It increases rather than diminishes the wide swings of the business cycle." »10 FOR YOUR OLD STOVE ON THE PURCHASE OF A NEW UNIVERSAL America's Most Beautiful Range NOW PRICED AS LOW AS 59 .50 and your old stove The beautiful Universal Ranges have every new and advanced feature, making possible a standard of cooking performance heretofore unknown!

CHICAGO, · (/D--Blind Thomas Howard Overton, 31, and armless Stanley A. Kasprzyk, 32,'are headed for a career in law on a co-operative basis. How they pooled their physical resources was disclosed when Overton, announced by the CMcago- Kcnt college of law as the high ranking scholar in the freshman class of 175, insisted that Kasprzyk deserved some of the credit.

They met by chance their first day in school when the armless student guided his blind classmate down a,flight of steps. When they reached' the door at the bottom Kasprzyk couldn't turn the 'knob to open it. But Overton could. Overton could carry books, but not read them. Kasprzyk could read, but not carry books. The logical association developed by mutual consent, Overton related. "I take notes in class with a punch on a Braille form board," he said. "Out of class Stanley reads to me · and I transcribe my notes on a typewriter for him. For each of us it is just a matter of working harder to overcome a physical handicap." Calls on Brother.
