PRIOR RETURNS FROM FLORIDA Saw Homes of Prominent Americans; Opposed to Corporation Tax. Edmund H. Prior, formerly of Mason City and now a resident of Waterloo, was a Mason City visitor Monday. Mr. and Mrs. Prior have just returned from an automobile trip to Florida, in which they traveled 4,700 miles .and visited 11 states. , While in Florida the Priors saw. the residences of Thomas Edison, Al Capone, Henry Ford and J. C. Penney and inadvertently came across Carlyle Hendry, world renowned alligator catcher, who was written U P in a recent edition of the American magazine. . They saw stupendous turpentine forests and watched the manufacturing of turpentine products. Other interesting items -were the pecan groves, the peanut industry, as well as the big southern crop, cotton. One of the peculiarly interesting developments in the south is the fact that the Negro is becoming educated, according to Mr. Prior. "The Negroes are using the best English in the south today," Mr. Prior said. "The whites are keeping the old southern jargon, but the darky is moving ahead." Despite his long absence from the state, Mr. Prior, who is a member of the legislative committee from the third district for the Izaak Walton league, continued to watch developments in Iowa. ' In discussing the proposed corporation income tax Mr. Prior recalled that among the places visited in Florida was-the headquarters of the Ringling circus, which, he was informed, moved out of Wisconsin because of the, corporation tax in that state. The former home .of the Ringling circus was at Baraboo, Wis. Mr. Prior was particularly apprehensive over the situation in Iowa for the reason that Waterloo might lose the Deere plant there if a corporation tax were passed in this state.
