APRIL 25 1934 THE AMUSEMENT HERALD FIVE COLFLESH BACKS FARM LEADERS Pledges Co-Operation; Also Says Farm Taxes Must Be Reduced. KNOXVTLLE, April 25.--Speaking before an audience including a large proportion of farmers, Robert W. Colflesh, candidate for the republican nomination as governor, last night expressed his willingness to co-operate with farm leaders of the state if successful in his campaign. "I do not claim to be a farmer he said, "even though for several years during my youth I milked seven cows, night and morning, and got some excellent training for the handshaking of a political campaign. "I do not believe Iowa farmers are any different in their views and interests than the residents in Iowa cities and towns. Also I do not believe that in order to gain farm votes it will be necessary for me to appear in political gatherings with barnyard mud on my boots. Must Ileduce Taxes. "Taxes on farm real property must be reduced, but not without considering the effects of the pyramiding upon the farmer of sales taxes which he cannot evade. It must be remembered that the farmer and the salaried worker are the classes which must bear the heaviest burden of sales taxes in the end, for they are not in a position to pass this tax along. "In this country you are now receiving the first benefit payments under the corn-hog reduction program. I am as hopeful as anyone can be that this program will prove successful. It seems to me, however, that in the end any proposal to limit strictly production in Iowa is unsound. Depends on Farmers. "Iowa is the most fertile tract of land of its ^size anywhere in the world. If emphasis is to be placed upon reduction of acreage, that emphasis should be put upon the getting out of production poor land, not good land. "It is ridiculous to talk about reducing acreage on one hand, and at the same time to work toward the development of vast new acreages by reclamation and irrigation. "I ask the support of farmers of Iowa, not as farmers but as citizens. There is no line drawn between the people of Iowa by city limits. Iowa cannot prosper without higher farm incomes. Can Remedy Conditions. "The state administration can be of assistance in remedying farm conditions in. many ways. It can, by example, help to decrease the cost " of government by reducing expenditures. It can, through legislative enactment, put a definite limit upon the tax to be imposed upon real property, "I am opposed to deficiency judgments. I favor national legislation to rescue the rates on farm credits of every character. Beyond everything, however, I want to see fair prices for farm commodities." James E. Markley Travel Letters Will Be Presented Visitor From Redding. GRAFTON--Barton Abarr of Redding is visiting at the Quentln Abarr home. Highlights of Trip Around' World Set Down by Him for Globe-Gazette. The Globe-Gazette's earnest invitation to James E. Markley to prepare a few letters for publication while he and his daughter, Miss Doris, are on their trip around the world, has been accepted. It is the first time that Mr. Markley has been prevailed upon to set his observations on paper and its acceptance is probably a reflection of the persistence employed in the extending of the invitation. At the present time the Markleys are in the national game forest of South Africa, a region visited a few years ago by Miss Markley but new to Mr. Markley. The Markleys left Mason City on Jan. 20 and embarked on Jan. 25 from San Pedro, Cal., after two days in Los Angeles, during which they renewed acquaintance with the Harry Keelera, Bowens, Valentines, Gil- mores, Jean Blythe Gentry, Mrs. Anne Conroy, Mrs. Minnie Sorter and a number of others known to Mason City. They will arrive home in the early part of June. "There is a very interesting membership on- the cruise," said Mr. Markley in a personal letter written at sea to Mason City relatives. "About 15 or more of them were with us on the Empress of Britain two years ago. Mrs. J. N. (Ding) Darling of Des Moines is one of those at our table." Famous Author on Ship. Hendrik Van Loon, the world famous geographer, is an interesting member of the party. Mr. Markley describes him as "about 6 feet 4 inches tall and huge, but very agreeable." Mention is made of a lecture given by him on the previous night, "the theme being that all the discoveries of the past have been made to expand trade and not, as we are inclined to think, for ro mance or adventure." "Another lecturer," Mr. Markley writes, "is an acknowledged expert on present day trade and economics and general foreign relations. He gives the news of the world with his interpretation of trends of the times as affected by monetary standards, tariffs and trade restrictions with possibilities of war, etc." Rotary Club Organized. "Monday," he writes further, "we will inaugurate a Rotary club of all Rotarians on the boat. Of those with us on the ccjiise two years ago, there is one from Copenhagen, Denmark, one from England and one other, making four who belonged to the club organized at that time "We shall have weekly meetings and have distinguished speakers of whom there are plenty on board. We will also attend Rotary meetings in various ports when we happen to be in port on the proper date, and wil invite officers of clubs to dine with us in other places." Anticipates Hawaii. In anticipation of reaching the Hawaiian islands in a few days, Mr. Markley in this personal letter writes: "The plaintive melody of the national Aloha seems to be floating on the air. I can. remember it from a small boy when my sister sang "The Lone Rock by the Sea' to the same pensive air. They say it was writ,en by Queen Liliuokalani, and adopted from the American song. In my event, the plaintive music floats ike a dream symphony over the nind when one thinks of Hawaii." The next part of the letter is vritten after a "most enjoyable day and a half in Honolulu." Ethel Damon and her sister, it is noted, were among those seen in the Hawaiian capital, a Chinese dinner at their tome and a drive over much of the sland having been enjoyed. Salisages on Trees. 'Discovered that sausages grow on trees here and sent Jay Decker a card with picture of the tree," Mr. Markley adds. "We did the usual things at Hilo. There have been heavy rains and the island with its wealth of color was most beautiful. The tulip tree is in full bloom, also .he tiger claw tree and many others. "Van Loon blossomed out in shorts a few days ago and I guess all the cruisers will follow suit. .If Van with his 300 pounds can wear shorts, I think there is no reason why I can't." All of this is just a taste of what lies ahead for Globe-Gazette readers. The first letter written for the Globe-Gazette will be presented in the next issue. ARMY SOON TO BE MOTORIZED Jam of Technicalities in Way of Change About to Break. WASHINGTON, April 25. JP-The jam of technicalities that kept the army from trading slow horses for fast trucks is about to break. In the next few days, Representative Rogers (D., NH) understands the war department will award the first contracts in its $10,000,000 motorization program. This action may be followed soon by initial con- tracts in a $10,000,000 airplane program. Rogers is chairman of a house subcommittee which delved into army affairs. The motorization program was instituted wh«n the PWA set aside $10,000,000 for that purpose. Harry H. Woodring, assistant secretary of war, ordered specifcation re-drafted, holding they were not freely competitive. His decision was appealed, and pending a grand jury Investigation no contracts were granted. Now that the grand jury has refused to return Indictments, the re-drafted specifications have bean sent to the comptroller general. While he approved some, he has disapproved a few others and has held that some we so old as to be invalid. Those he has passed will enable the army to begin buying its trucks.

Have You Discovered This "HIDDEN VIRTUE" Too? jTJL wise man has said that it is the heart not the face that makes beauty. And many of the hundreds who have called us up or written us, praising the flavor, the zest, the sparkle, the different something that appeals to them in Golden Grain Belt Beer, have mentioned a Hidden Quality that only experience could teach them. And here is what they have discovered. Golden Grain Belt is just as kind to you after an hour, two hours, or the next morning, as when it first passes your lips. It guarantees complete digestibility, no heaviness or after- regrets. This "internal kindness" of Golden Grain Belt has already endeared itself to those "who never could drink beer," to the regulars who love beer as the peer of stimu- lating beverages, and, last but not least, to women, who like the refinement of perfect digestibility. Brewed without hurry, with the choicest of barley and hops and the purest water--naturally aged and matured-All these necessary qualities of fine brewing together are the source of this "Hidden Virtue." When you drink beer, it is yours for the asking. "THE MINNEAPOLIS BEER" Aged the Natural Way -Fully Matured! DISTRIBUTOR: NEHI BOTTLING COMPANY 25 SECOND STREET S. W. MASON CITV PHONE 3629 FEATURED IN "SHE MADE HER BED" Current Movie Hit at the Palace Theater Beading from left to right . . . SALLY EILERS GENERAL ELECTRIC REFRIGERATOR RICHARD ARLEN Baby Saved From Fire by General Electric Monitor Top Refrigerator-^- · Saving food is nothing new for a General Electric Refrigerator . .. that's been the regular job of these gleaming white home-servants many years, and the job has been well done, too! Saving a baby from burning to death comes a little outside of its regular line of duties, but when put to the test the G-E comes through with flying colors! Richard Arlen, Jr., age eight months, is the plucky young chap who, as the story goes, has the dependable G-E Refrigerator to thank for his well- being. It didn't make much difference to him if the house burned to the ground . . . no Sir! Not so long as there was a G-E handy! It's all a part of the film story now showing at the Palace ... "She Made Her Bed," you'll enjoy the picture. You Can't Make It TOO HOT For a G-E! Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked over a lantern starting a fire which swept over a large part of Chicago, destroying almost everything in its path. An earthquake caused the blaze which wrecked havoc in San Francisco. It is safe to say that had a General Electric Refrigerator been in the midst of either of these disasters, the mechanism would still be running and furnishing perfect refrigeration service. For hardly a day passes but one of these steel-clad Monitor Top refrigerators is called upon to resist the ravishes of fire's fury. That heat has little or no effect on its mechanical operation, has been proved many times when homes were completely burned and later ice cubes were found still frozen and the food in perfect condition in the General Electric Refrigerator.
