Every self cm ployed individual would pay ' per cent of his income- and fed eral, state and municipal cm ployes 314 per cent. "It is estimated that the tola annual income from this bil would be over 312,000,000,000 anc that over 53,000,000,000 annually would be placed in a separate account to be known as the 'medi cal care and hospital accounts' tc be spent by the surgeon general the one -man who would have the power over the health, care an treatment of possibly 110 million people," Dr. Woodward stated. The bill provides that the sur geon general is to use this $3,000, 000,000 for the following pur Poses: $GOO,000,000 for adminis trative costs, $GOO,000,000 to hin every effective physician in th United States at an average sal ary of 55,000 a year, 5650,000,001 for non-government beds.

It was next adopted in England when Lloyd George advocated it in order to turn an election. The plan,- he said, hasn't proved satisfactory. The problem. Dr. Woodward stated, is to procure good medical and hospital care for 10 or 15 Per cent of the population not now provided for without overthrowing our whole medical and hospital setup that works for 85 or 90 per cent of the population. Medical care and hospitalization should by all means be made available to 100 per cent of our population and the extension of such plans as the Blue Cross and insurance coverage should make that possible, Dr. Woodward slated. Dr. Woodward was introduced by Mrs. Bcrnice Scale, chairman of the health division of the council.

Dr H - c - Krue ^ erAnnounces Candidacy as Representative TRUCK TIRES OF COUNTY WILL BE NSPECTED HERE Clear Lake and Mason City Boards Each to Appoint 2 Members Rationing of truck tires in Cerro Jordo cbunty hereafter will be andled by one combined board or the entire county, Claud Hicks, charge of tire rationing in the G counties of the Des Moines dis- rict, told a meeting Wednesday vening oE truckers, tire dealers nd ration board representatives rom Mason City anti Clear Lake. The Clear Lake and Mason City atiort boards will each appoint 2 epresentatives to the new board, e explained. Establishment of a enlral truck tire inspection sta- ion in Mason City for the entire ounty made necessary the cen- ral board. The meeting called by Mr. Hicks esultect, he said, from more than 0 letters lie received from the Clear Lake area protesting the iscontinuance by the Clear Lake oard of the issuing of truck tire ertificates. That move was taken ecause ot orders from the OPA ffice in Washington, D. C. "It cannot and will not be hanged," the district head defaced. ''But if I ever see any dis- rimination, I'll j-ank that board mmediately." He admitted the new system vould not be as convenient for esidents of the western part of he county but pointed out that Hear Lake dealers did not carry ruck tires in stock anyway ac- ·ording lo his observation, and vould have to come to Mason City for it if they sold one. The vorn out tire could be brought o, the central inspection station at that time, he suggested, and the application filed with the central board. lUcould then be sent back .0 the Clear Lake board and be picked up there. '"You're going to sell every ruck tire you can gel." he prom- sed in answer to written com- ilaints that the new system would ake business away from Clear Lake. "The only question now is where to put them to do the most good." "If the war in Europe isn't over by August, you'll see more than half the passengers cars oft the road," he forecast. There arc less than half as many truck tires to ration as last year, he added. "This means that half the Irucks in the county are going to be off the road by hot weather!" Truck tires can win or lose the war, Mr. Hicks asserted, quoting U. S. army authorities- The average life of n truck tire in Italy is 4 days, he added, and the army already is reaching into the rubber allocated for passenger car, tractor and implement tires. The nation's transportation system is now its most vulnerable spot, the OPA official continued, and if it breaks down Japan will consider the time ripe for a negotiated peace so that it can begin perparing for other wars. '·'If we keep food, livestock and fuel moving, that's about all the truck tires we can exi'cct to Ret," he declared. Iowa is the lowest in the nation's tire recapping list, Mr. Hicks informed his inspectors. Iowa has an average of 46 recaps for each 100 new tires issued as compared with a national average of SO per 100, he reported, calling for more rigid inspection and inisistance on recapping at every opportunity. Considering passenger car tire inspections, he warned his inspect o r s that under-inflation or wheels out of line must be regarded as misuse of tires and so Every application must have the reported on application blanks. Every application must have the serial number and exact condition of every tire on the car, he added. Truck tire applications also must carry the ODT certificate number and the tire inspection record. Every truck tire, new or used, is rationed, he continued, even if it is lo be used on a tractor or Clear Lake Veterinarian and Farmer to Run on G. 0. P. Ticket in June Dr. H. C. Krueger, Clear Lake veterinarian, will be a candidate for the nomination as stale representative from Cerro Gordo county on the republican ticket in Ihe June primaries, it was announced Thursday. Dr. Krueger is- the recently elected president of the Association for the Preservation of Clear Lake, having served as acting president, vice president, board member and committee member since its organization. He was particularly active in the acquisition by the state of the new Me In tosh Woods state park property. He was born July 18, 1895, and reared on a ranch near Deer Lodge, Mont., until lie was 11 years old when the family moved. lo the middle west to engage · in farming. He was married to Regina Kappe of Beecker, 111., in 1921. Dr. Krueger came to Mason City as a veterinarian in March, 1920. He moved to Clear Lake 6 years ago and now owns and operates a 240 acre farm south of Ventura. He and Mrs. Krueger have one son, Bob, a senior in Clear \ Lake high school. An older son, DR. H. C. KRUEGER r · -- _^_ Warren, was killed last August while in training at Corpus Christi, Tex., as a navy pilot. The candidate is a member- of the Congregational church of Clear Lake, the Masonic order Lions club, Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce, American Veterinarian Medical association and Iowa and Minnesota Veterinarian societies. implement. Tire allotments are the same for every district in the country, he concluded, being based on the number of cars in each district. | ' There were 110 persons registered at the meeting. * OPA Sums Up Tire Supply Facts The Office ot Price Administration has summarized the tire supply situation as follows: About a million and a half used passenger tires arc left for rationing. Since tires of this type have recently been rationed at the rate of about 850,000 a month, it is not longer possible to continue the old program and still keep essential cars in operation. The office of the rubber director has advised OPA that because of heavy military needs, together with shortages of essential materials, equipment and manpower, manufacture, of. new. passenger tires during the present quarter will not permit a national monthly quota in excess ot 750,000. This 750,000 per month for the entire country is not large enough to give all occupational drivers new tires as needed. Therefore, tires are now rationed as follows: First, new tires {Grade 1) will go to the most essential drivers They may also get ration certificates for Grade III tires if new ones are not available. Second, lised tires and "war* tires (Grade III) will go lo less essential drivers. Third, drivers who do not use their cars in connection with their work will continue to be ineligible for tires of any sort. This means that in the cast no driver holding an "A" card is eligible to buy tires of any sort. In other parts of the country, where the **A" ration contains some gasoline for occupational use. "A' card holders who can show essential occupational drivinc may be able to obtain tires. Drivers no eligible for tires of any sort mus continue to rely on recapping to meet their tire needs. It is apparent to o[[icials in the Des Moines' district office that many small tire dealers in the district arc without stock o£ grade III tires which arc used tires. Therefore, issuance by a local war price and ration board of a certificate for purchase of a grade III tire, docs not insure the available. Marine Had Lord on His Side in Tarawa Battle "A marine with the Lord on his side." This was the explanation offered by Lowell "Bud" Koci oC ration, marine private 1/c, o£ why he was among the 20 survivors in the first wave of VOO marines to attack Tarawa. Marine Koci was the guest of :ionor and interview speaker for the Mason City Lions club at the reen Mill Wednesday noon.

After a period of hospitalization he was sent home for f u r t h e r recovery. He expressed a wish to rejoin his o u t f i t in the Pacific as soon as he has regained full use of his injured arm. The full story of the capture of Tarawa, which will be contained in a KGLO Forum interview at 6:30 o'clock Thursday nighl, was related to the Lions club.
