But she indicated that it may become a permanent rift "if I have to travel about a good deal." "Very Nice Boy." "He is a very nice boy," she said, "but I don't see how marriage can go with my work." It seemed, sbe added, that she would be moving often--to Chicago for the worlds fair opening, then to her family a "estate" near Davenport, Iowa. "And then," she said, "I want to go to'California, to-write for the -movies. My husband can't go along idle, like a puppy dog." _ The former Iowa girl added that "Al" does not wish to be "merely Mr. Cook." 'She added: "Of course he is a very nice boy, but we haven't quite worked "things out, and it looks like a difficult problem." No Divorce Planned. No immediate divorce is planned, Miss Cook said. "Al" is trying to make up his mind what he wants to do. Nila's 6 year old son, Sinos, is living with a relative two blocks from his mother's hotel.

Single and double breasted models. All sizes. MINNEAPOLIS. April 12. A campaign to inaugurate a gross income tax, designed to reduce the general property tax, has been launched in tbe state with a series of meetings on the subject held at Albert Lea and Rochester. Property owners of Freeborn county are affiliating with a new taxpayers organization, the Minnesota Association of Tax; Justice, according to A. J. Olson of Albert Lea, president of the Minnesota Farm Bureau. Plan State Association. It is planned to organize a state association to seek adoption of the tax plan, which now if in effect in the state of Indiana. A paid secretary is to be set up to offices at Minneapolis. The state will be de- vided into 17 districts and organization extended into every county, ward and township. Olson says he has found a great deal of enthusiasm for the ax-, sociation's plan, which has as its purpose the substitution of the gross income or dollar turnover tax for the general property tax. Principles advocated by the Freeborn county group were recently presented in two m e e t i n g s at Rochester by a group of Albert Lea officials. "Will Lift Burden." Th« gross income tax, F. G- Wells, president of. the Olson Manufacturing company of Albert Lea, says, "will lift the burden of property taxation from the farmer, businessman and worklngman alike, and will return the security of land, home and property holdings that are being' confiscated under the present system. It is a new plan of taxation, Mr. Wells pointed out, "based on the simple principle, that all citizens shall pay their fair and proportionate share of the cost ot government by applying a single rate to tbe gross income of every individual or business without favoring one group of class against another." Mayor Edgar L. Hayek of Albert Lea, in advocating the plan, stated the gross income tax would end tbe w h o l e s a l e loss of homes and farms by taking some of the burden off real property, which he says furnishes 78 per cent of the tax revenue. Checkup Shows Chorus of Lake Mills Placed Superior in District IAKE MILLS, April 1Z--"A great mistake-baa'been made." · Such was the burden of a telephone message received, here this week by Lake Mills school authorities from an official connected with the music contest recently held at Ames. The local high school mixed chorus, which has brought distinction to this community for the past seven years, had come home from the contest believing it had failed to place. But the "great mistake" referred ·' to had to do with a checkup on the judges' decision which revealed that the Lake Mills mixed chorus rated a mark of "superior" and the right to participate in the state finals at the University of Iowa. The dark gloom which pervaded the vicinity of the high school on the days immediately following the Ames contest has lifted. Life has taken on a new meaning!
