The question has arisen ·Can we take off the property tax?' But how do we pay the tax today if tot through the gross receipts of a business or a reserve fund. Yet this inequality arises through what is so called the property tax ic which persons pay on the land or property disregarding the gross profits of the individual. Are Exempt. "It is true that the large amount of bonds and moneys now pay no tax nor give any contribution to the cost of the government.

CLEAR LAKE, April 23.--Seven crews of fishermen completed their work of seining to obtain pike spawn for the state fish and game department' Friday night. There are now 29,225,000 pike eggs in the Clear Lake fish hatchery on the north shore which are given the best of care in order to increase the hateh. The number of eggs obtained this year in tw.o weeks is slightly larger than last year. Due to the cool water temperature, it may take longer for them to hatch. Directs Hatching Process. Orel Hoel, who has served as cus todian of the hatchery for the past heven years, has assumed the work of overseeing the hatching. He received his instruction from J. P. Baur, fish culturist, who died last The work begins in the lake where the seiners do the stripping. Both the male and female pike are stripped. At the hatchery the eggs are fertilized, allowed to harden and placed in the jars of running water Feathers are used to handle the jelly-like rnas of eggs when first taken from the mother fish. Approximately 60 gallons of water are used per minute after the jars are full. Here Mr. Hoel is shown reg mating the speed of the water which flows into the jars. The eggs harden after the first 18 hours and grow darker in color aa they approach the hatching stage. Expected in May. The first hatch is expected to ap pear about May 1. A waterworks system operating' directly from the lake has been installed in the hatch ery within the past two years which greatly lowers the expense of oper ating as well as offering a mor natural habitat during the hatching process, which continues from !. to IS days. Fungi or unfertilized eggs rise t the top and flow away in the strean of water. As the eggs begin t hatch they · also rise to the top of the jar and follow the flow of water to the fry tank where they remain until they are several inches long. TITTLE BROS. PACKING Co.

Government End the Crushing Tax Burden on Iowa's Real Estate Repeal the Sales Tax and Property Taxi The Gross Income Tax Will Tax the iftlSIHE from All It is time to elect a Governor pledged to a definite plan of tax relief. Sixty-seven per cent of Iowa wealth escapes taxation and leaves 33% to carry the entire burden, loading down real estate with taxes until it is facing bankruptcy, and all business connected with Iowa farming is at a standstill. This situation can be corrected with Clarence Knutson's Gross Income tax plan. Il takes the tax off property and places it on the dollar. Taxing Gross Income taxes Iowa wealth equitably in a manner that is fair lo all. Place the Tax on the Dollar Elect Clarence A. Knutson Governor! His platform is the repeal of the 2% Retail Sales Tax and the enactment of the Gross Income Tax to replace property taxes. Why should the home which produces no income pay a tax? "Why should vacant buildings pay the same tax as a like property that is rented and profitable? Why should the farmer who loses his crops from drouth or storms, or his hogs from cholera, pay the same tax as his more fortunate neighbor who markets a bumper crop? The Gross Income Tax puts the lax on the Dollar and the taxes you pay arc based on your dollars of income. A Sad Story -Many Iowa farms the past three years, have failed to pay interest and taxes, and we stand by witnessing the forced sale of many such farms for less than the cost of their improvements. But this isn't the whole sad story. National and State debts arc increasing. More and more tax exempt bonds are being issued and sold to the public. With CLARENCE A. KNUTSON.

A Sound Plan of Taxing All loica Wealth Fairly Kiiutson asks the voter--"Why should the home be sacrificed to luxalion and tax exempt bonds continue to be sold to Iowa wealth?" The Gross Income Tax Plan will meet this grave situation and give real relief. It will lift the burden from property and spread the tax justly to all wealth. It will reduce taxes on real estate at least fifty per cent in its first year of operation. This is not an empty political boast, but a sound plan of taxation that will dispose of our present unfair system and give all Iowa wealth a square deal. Return Iowa Farm Land To Its Rightful I'lacc Iowa's greatest asset is its farm laud. Heavy taxes and high interest rales have made farm ownership undesirable. The avcraac tax on Iowa farm land is equivalent "lo :i first mortgage of S30.00 per acre.
