CONTROL OF FOX POPULATION AIM OF STATE GROUP Deputy Schwob Asks Farmers to Co-Operate in Iowa Game Program. Many opinions have Been voiced against the depredation done by foxes but there are as many persons who are for the protection of the red fox as there are for its destruction, according to F. T. Schwob, state deputy game warden of Mason City. "Some farmers claim the foxes prey on field mice, rats and gophers while others claim they prey on rabbits, game birds and poultry." said Mr. Schwob. "The present scanty data shows truth in both directions so we believe the fox should not be entirely exterminated. We would like the fox population to be reduced to the extent that it will not damage ' the game crop and farmers' property" Asks Co-Operatlon. Since hundreds of fox pups are killed every spring by the digging out of fox dens, the state game warden has urged that all farmers co-operate with the district warden in reporting cases where damage is being done by the fox so that permission can be given before destroying the dens and fox pups can be taken alive rather than killed. The pups, according to Deputy Schwob will be taken care of in another manner. Deputy Schwob suggested the fol lowing plan for farmers with dens of foxes'.on their land where th adult foxes are doing damage. "First: Write or notify Deputj Warden F. T. Schwob of Mason Cit; that you have a den of foxes on your farm and that you wish to have him call on you to give you the proper permission to destroy the fox den and remove the pups. "Second: I will advise you at once when I can be there and conside the granting of authority to remov the den. Advise County Recorder. "Third: In case you cannot get in touch with me, leave the informa tion or request with the county re corder. "Fourth: The law permits you t kill adult fox at any time of th year but it does not permit you t destroy any dens without first nob fying, within a reasonable time, th state fish and game warden or hi deputy of your intention to destro the dens." According to Deputy Warde Schwob it is illegal to have any fo pups in your possession without special permit from the deputy wa den or the state game warden. Th penalty for such violation is fro: $10 to $100 on each fox pup illegal taken and the same penalty may b imposed for the destroying of a de without first notifying the depul 2,000 MEMBERS IN ASSOCIATION; TO BE INCREASED Assessment of 15 Cents for Each Provides Payment in Event of Death.

Miss Hepburn is said to give utter ·ealism to this incredibly stimulating character and to bring such dynamic power to her interpretation of this difficult role as no other star could. DEAN SPEAKS ON NEW TAX BEFORE JUNIOR CHAMBER Says Iowa Law "Iron Clad" Replacement Tax; Studied Other State Systems. An interesting and illuminating discussion of Iowa's new tax law was presented to the junior division of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce Monday evening at the Hotel Hanford by Earl Dean, state representative from this district. Distribution of the tax burden in accordance with ability to pay is the objective of the bill, Mr. Dean said, and pointed out that the three features of the new, measure--the personal net income tax, the corporation net income tax and the sales tax--result in a more equitable distribution than either .the property tax or a gross income tax. The sales tax is in reality a gross income tax, the representative said, and therefore cannot be used to supply all of the financial needs of the government because the ultimate consumer is the one who pays the tax. Can Shift Burden. Thus, large business houses anc others best able to pay the tax are also best able to shift it to the consumer, Dean said. The new measure is an "ironclad replacement tax, according to the speaker, and a substantial benefit will be noticed from it by next year Dean cited the gross income tax methods of South Dakota and Indiana and pronounced them failures. He said that the principle upon which they are based is unsound because there is not and cannot be any fixed relation between dollar ;urnover and profit. Stoyles Presides. The meeting was in charge of Vice President Bob Stoyles in the absence of Leo M. Sweesy, president, who was out of the city.
