MANY PENSIONS ADDED BY IOWA Cerro Gordo Increase for April Listed at 63 by Moilien. DES MOINES, (1DPA)--Nearly 30,000 Lowans will draw state old age pensions for April. Additional pension approvals totaling 4.048 have been placed on the books in the last few days to raise the state total to 29,615. according to figures released today by T. A. Moilien, actuary for the old age assistance commission. Possible by U. S. Funds. New approvals were made possible only because of the federal allocation of 5548.000 to Iowa. Moilien said. The federal government is matching- state funds r a i s e d through general taxation for old age assistance purposes. Since Iowa raises approximately $3,000.000 annually for pensions, the "matching" funds are expected to total 5750,000 a quarter when the system is placed in fulltime working order. Cases included in the new group of approvals will receive April pensions even though it may be several weeks before all the checks finally are issued, the actuary added. Average pension is $14.50 a month. IJsfed in North Iowa. Additions to county pension totals are made on a "weighted quota" basis, according to Moilien. Some of the factors determining a county's participation in new approvals include the total of its aged population, need of applicants, and to a lesser degree the number of applications from a county. Following are the most recent pension totals by North Iowa counties and the number to he added to each total by Thursday's approvals: Addi- Coiinty Old Total tions Allam'akee 22!5 2 Bremer 17(5.

Charles City News URGES CAMPAIGN TO BE FOUGHT ON RECORD OF PARTY {Contimifd From Pflfft- 3) And in 1932 the annual income of the American people was 51 billion less than it'was the year Mr. Hoover took office. We have increased the public debt 9 billions, but the wealth of the nation tins increased 50 billion dollars since Roosevelt took office. In 1935, the income of the American people was 15 billion dollars more than it was the. last year of the Hoover administration. Judged by the results, which expenditure of public money was good business -- that by the Hoover administration or that by the Roosevelt administration. Former Charles Cityan Tells of Flood in East CHARLES CITY--Mrs. .1. P. Clark, long lime resident of Charles City, who is making her home for the present with her son, Harold Clark, in New Hope, Pram., has written about the flood conditions there. She said the ice jam took out a section of a twenty million dollar bridge one block from, their home. The furniture in her son's home had to be taken from the first floor to the second and third stories. Mrs. Clark stated she was taken to the home of friends for several days. The water was 21 feet aibove normal at New Hope. She said such serious flood conditions . had not occurred for 33 years. THE REPUBLIC The Liberty league and the du Fonts and others of their turn of mind charge that this democratic administration has conspired to change our form of government. To get a rational view of that charge, let us look a little at American history. Thomas Jefferson, the founder , of the democratic party, wrote the declaration of independence, which is the cornerstone nf the philosophy i upon which our form o( government ! w'as built. Another democrat, James ! Madison, wrote the constitution of j the United States, about which the Libery Icauguers are so concerned now, though three short years ago some of them declared it "should be put into cold storage." Another democrat, James Monroe, promulgated the Monroe doctrine, which has preserved our form of government inviolate on the two American contents for more than a hundred years. A little more history: Every foot of ground that has been added to the IS original states between the Atlantic ocean and the pacific and between Canada and Mexico, was added by some democratic administration and put under our form of government. Our form of government in danger from a democratic administration! Who gave us our form of government? Who preserved it from selfish interests and from demagogs? Call the roll of the democratic architects and defenders of our form of government: Jefferson. Madison. Monroe, Andrew Jackson. Samuel J. Tildon. Grover Cleveland. Woodrow Wilson and--Franklin D. Roosevelt. If in some evil j day. some political party attempts to change our form of government, or to undermine our republic's greatness, it will, be some party that has had far less to its credit in founding and in preserving this government and farlcss in making this nation great than has the historic party of the plain people, the great democratic party. On March -1. 1933, the faith of the American people in our form of government had been severely tried. Some had lost faith. Some men who now invoke the constitution declared that America needed a dicta- I t o r . The Roosevelt administration ( h a s icstorrd the American people's jfaitli i n ' o u r form of government.
