JPEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE NARY SUPPORTS KNUTSON DRIVE Existing Sales Tax Scored in Spirit Lake Talk by Clear Lake Man. SPENCER, April 13.--The tax free homes and farms program advocated in an address by Clarence A. Knutson, Clear Lake, republican candidate for governor, at the Clay county courthouse here last night, was supplemented by an indorse- ment delivered by H. E. Narey, prominent attorney of northwestern Iowa, Spirit Lake, on behalf of a large group of citizens of this community. In indorsing the candidacy and tax program of Mr. Knutson, Mr. Narey declared the gross income tax plan would entirely and fairly distribute the burden of taxation on the basis of dollars and would make for complete economic recovery. In his own address before a large Clay county audience here .last night, Mr. Knutson attacked the existing sales tax as inadequate in lifting any appreciable burden of taxation from real estate and declared that its operation even now is meeting with universal dissatisfaction in all parts of Iowa. Adoption of the gross income tax plan, he said, would remove the entire burden from oppressed real estate and be a complete replacement of all property taxes. Mr. Knutson further advocated a new system of financing farm loans at the lowest possible rates of interest through the medium of the federal land banks. This plan, he said, would entail power granted to the federal land banks to issue their own currency backed by an issue of government bonds also carrying a low rate of interest.
