UP)--Children played on the W. H. Babcock lawn here. They jumped with childish delight into a sunken spot covered with soft turf. It was fun and they jumped again.

The Babcocks are having the well filled in, definitely to guard against any danger to the children. Awful thought.

(UP)--Loans on property would be made more available at lower interest rates, if the tax on land were removed, Clarence A. Knutson, candidate for the republican nomination for governor, told an audience here last night. "Land taxes are, in effect, a first mortgage on property," Knutson said. "Remove these through the medium of the gross income tax and we will remove the last barrier to rise in land values. Home owning would be encouraged, farm and home owners would improve their property, labor would be given work and manufacturers would be able to sell more materials." A gross income tax, calculated to raise all of the revenue necessary for the expenses of government, would reach nearly 70 per cent of the people of Iowa, Knutson declared, who now escape taxes in some manner or other. The speaker advocated repeal of the present two per cent retail sales tax, which he branded as a "tax on the purchases of the poor man." He estimated that a gross income tax set at one-half of one per cent would raise sufficient revenue to replace all taxes levied against real property and pay for all expenses of government, state, county and school districts.
