MANUFACTURERS HIT TAX PROGRAM Report Townsend Newspaper Brought m $500 to $600 Weekly. WASHINGTON, UP)--Organized manufacturers opposed the $799000,000 tax program before one congressional committee Thursday while another pressed its investigation of the Townsend pension plan. The revenue proposal was called by Noel Sargent, secretary of the national association of manufacturers, a disguised "share-the-wealth" scneme. Representative Samuel B. Hill (D.Wash) asked if the association hadn't opposed every tax bid in the last 15 years. Sargent said that wasn't quite correct. Investigators heard that receipts from the Townsend National Weekly in March, 1935, were beween .$500 and $600 a week. It was owned then by Dr. F. E. Townsend and Robert E. Clements, co-founder of the movement, who recently resigned. Assertion Is Denied. Another assertion--immediately denied--that 99 per cent of the advertising in the Townsend National Weekly was of products for the "treatment of the ills of the aged," was made to the committee. Clements denied the '99 per cent" statement by James R. Sullivan, committee counsel, but did agree the paper carried some patent medicine advertising. Sullivan read to the high amusement of the committee and spectators a series of advertisements from the Townsend -weekly which made claims to remarkable cures. Another development was a commerce department announcement that it had received "entirely unsatisfactory" estimates on the super liner which the United States lines pledged to build when it retired the Leviathan. Delay Claiming Forfeit. The government delayed claiming a $1,000,000 forfeit from the shipping firm pending word whether the navy might build the liner at a satisfactory price. Al Smith Jr., son of the new deal critic, heard attorneys deny a government lottery charge against the "Golden Stakes," in which, he is vice president and counsel. Appropriations engaged the house in debate and the Capper stockyards bill was up in. the senate. No Stripped Chassis at Pontiac Service Through a misunderstanding a statement was made in the last issue of the Globe-Gazette that John Gallagher, Inc., local Pontiac dealer would have a stripped chassis on display at the time of the automobile show April 9. 10 and 11. Mr. Gallagher stated Thursday that no chassis would be displayed, but that efforts were being made to obtain .a movie for the event. North Iowa has again taken the ead in school nrutsic development. This' time it is in the rural schools, 'ortland and Eden schools have their own organization and have joined 'or a mass group, believed the only tind in the state organized from one room district schoolhouses. Students in the orchestra are nersup, Lloyd Wilson. Bob Parrish, Ralph Thomas, Merritt Milligan, Bob Brisbane, Slyna Tosel, Frank Wilkinson, Bob Hermanson. Schools winning trophy --Monroe school and Wilson. 118 boys entered over 700 things. CLOSE-OUT OF MEN'S Nationally Advertised Strap Watches Regular $29.75 Value $19.75 M U R R A Y JEWELRY CO.

L. Raymond, automobile clerk. This compares with 177 in March, 1935. and 140 in March, 1934, indicating, according to dealers, that weather continued to act as a deterrent to purchase of cars. Plans were made for a large volume of automobile sales in April. In fact the opening of the month brought a rush for 30 licenses for new automobiles at the office of the clerk. The March figure brings the total of new cars for 1936 to 277 compared with 334 in 1935, 248 in 1934 and 112 in 1933.
