The bill introduced in congress as a substitute for the Costigan- Jones act, certain features of vhich were declared unconstitu- lonal by the supreme court, will f passtd prove a decided boon to :he beet sugar industry in North Iowa, according to E. C. Moore, manager of the Mason City, plant o£ the American Crystal Sugar company. Contracts for Ihe 1937 acreage are now being signed up and appear to reach a total of 17,000 acres in this area, Mr. Moore stat"Our 1937 contract will pay $6 a ton for beets of 15 per cent sugar content on the basis of 4 J A L'ent sugar," Mr. Moore stated. "Five cent sugar would pay $6.61 ton." Provides Payment. The measure introduced in congress following the president's message on March 1 by Senators O'Mahoney of Wyoming and Adams of Colorado provides for the payment ot the average beet of as much as $2.02 a ton in addition to the payments made directly by the sugar, companies, Mr. Moore pointed out. "Inasmuch as the president's message to congress on this subject recommends legislation along this line, it is assumed that the proposed measure will be given prompt attenlion by congress," the local company manager stated.

Five Persons Fined for Intoxication Five persons were fined Tues-' day by Police Judge Morris Laird on charges of intoxication. Pete Markovic, 724 Harrison avenue southwest, Robert Cable, Rockwell, and Leo J. Smith, Newton, were each fined $25 and costs. They were arrested in the business district.

The quota regulations follow closely those of the old act, Mr. Moore stated. The secretary's duties are in general similar to those under the old act. Child labor in beet and cane fields is prohibited below 14 years of age, and for the ages of from 14 to 16, eight hours only a day are allowed. The secretary of agriculture has authority to review and recommend wage rates paid by the producer and processor to labor. The same general authority is provided in the matter of quota regulations in the various sugar producing areas supplying this country and apparently the same authority exists to regulate acreage allotments in the various districts, although emphasis is placed upon the production of small growers against the larger growers of cane and beets. Makes Changes. ; There are,-however, two important changes in the new measure from the Costigan-Jones act, Mr. Moore points out. The processor is taxed to the exlent of 75 cents a hundred of raw sugar value as against 50 per cent in the old act, with the result that the tax on refined sugar will be 80.25 cents a hundred pounds of refined sugar as against 53.5 cents in the original act. Futhermore, the proposed tax is an excise tax on the privilege of doing business, as against the processing tax under growers whose crops of beets produce less than 250 tons of raw sugar. On basis of the average beet of the United States this would be equivalent to approximately 1,730 tons of beets. In case of a large grower whose beets -produce more than 250 tons of raw sugar but less than' 500 tons, the payment would be reduced by .025 cents per hundredweight of sugar, or approximately 7 cents per ton of seels. As can be seen from the above scale, payments to growers of beets and cane will be reduced by a raduated scale unlil Ihe maximum reduction is made when the producer furnishes raw material capable of producing more than 30,000 tons of raw sugar, in which event the payments are decreased by 25 cents a hundredweight of sugar. This is aimed primarily at the large companies especially in the cane growing area who grow practically all of their cane and some of whom, under the Costigan-Jones act, obtained in benefit payments amounts approaching a million dollars. Provisions are also made in the act for payments for abandonmenl and for deficiency payments in the event of total or partial crop failures due to causes beyond the control of the grower. Through Same Channels. The local administration of Ihe new act will be Ihrough the same channels of local committees as, heretofore and inasmuch as the machinery for the purpose has been established during the pas several years, the administrative features should be comparative!} simple. "The farmer accepts govcrnmen help directly to increase his income and indirectly lo build up hi, land," Mr. Moore commented "The sugar beet not! only helps hi income-but it builds up his lane and furnishes him a forage crop at the same lime in Ihe way o tops and crowns; and then increases his crop production Ih next year over what he gets from the government program. "When a farmer like A. M. Dougan can grow 70 acres of suga beets and Ihe next year take off a 5,000 bushel barley crop, whicl brings a premium for malting barley quality, the sugar beet shoulc have some credit for it even if i is classed as a depleting crop. Is that not building? some worthwhile soi World Wide Stamp Club Is Name for New Group At the regular meeting 01 the junior stamp club Monday evening at the'Y. M. C.

The most important feature, 'lowever, is that referring to bene- Eit payments to growers oE sugar beels and sugarcane, which as written, provides as follows: "Section 303. The amount of the base vale of payment a hundred pounds o£ sugar, raw value, produced from the producer's proportionate share of sugar beets or sugar cane marketed (or processed) shall be 70 cents. P a y m e n t s shall be effective with respect to sugar beets and sugar cane harvested after June SO, 1937. Of Base Rates. "Section 304. The total paymenl to a producer, or associated group of producers, of sugar beets 01 sugar cane shall be the product of the base rate specified in section 303 multiplied by the number of units of sugar produced with respect to which such payment is to be made, except that reductions shall be made from such total payment, in case the number of units exceeds five thousand, in accordance with the following scale of reductions: That portion of the quantity of sugar produced which is included within the following intervals of short lone'and Ihe reduction in the base rate of payment a hundredweight of such portion follows: 250 to 500 $0.025 500 to 1,50(1 050 1,500 lo (5,000 075 6,000 lo 12,000 100 12,000 to 30,000 125 More than 30,000 '. . .250 This means that instead of benefit payments of an unknown and variable amount sufficient to bring the price of beets up to parity, a definite and fixed amount is payable to the grower .of sugar beets equivalent to 70 cents a hundred of sugar, raw value, produced from the grower's beels. A payment of 70 cents per hundredweight raw value is equivalent to approximately 75 cents per hundred pounds of refined sugar. Payable to Grower. Inasmuch .as the average beels of the United States produce approximately 270 pounds of refined sugar, which is equivalent to about 289 pounds raw value, the payment of the grower of beels would be equivalent to about $2.02 a ton of average beels. There is Ihe further proviso that this maximum payment is payable only to beet What Beet Will Do. "That is what the sugar bee will do any lime by placing grecr manure right where the next crop gels the benefit. Hundreds of bee rowers are gelling their benefil every year by increased crop pro duclion.

The Marston Airtemp store, 107 'irst street southeast, is adding several new lines of home appliances in a general program of ex- jansion that includes an enlarged lersonnel, J. H. Marston, proprietor, announced Tuesday. Ivan A. Barnes, who for several years has been engaged in work of this character, has been placed n charge of sales in the appliance department. For several months Ihe Marston establishment, which is situated across the street from the new city hali, has handled the Chrysler Air- temp equipment, which includes oil and gas fired forced air heating equipment and summer ail- conditioning equipment for any sized space from a single room lo the largest building. E. J. Schmltt, experienced heating and air conditioning engineer from Sidles Airtemp, "Lincoln, Nebr.', distributors for Iowa and Nebraska, lias been added to the Marston Airtemp organization lo assure thai all installations of heating and air conditioning equipment will be properly made.

TAX BILL SHOWS 1937 INCREASE FOR NORTH IOWA Except for Probable Refund Amount L a r g e s t Since 1932. Except for probable homestead refunds, Iowa property owners this year will pay the.state's largest total tax bill since 1932, according to unofficial records ot the state board of assessment and review compiled by the Iowa Daily Press bureau. In Cerro Gordo county the collections in 1D37 will be $1,570,631 compared with $1,500,442 in 1936. A similar trend was evident in other North Iowa counties. In Floyd county the figure will jump from $725,045 to $745,032, Franklin from $699,434 to $712,384, Hancock from $542,841 to $605,389, Kossuth from §842,418 to $958,253, Winnebago from $465,473 to $490,146 and Worth from $387,417 to $416,117. Levied for Collection. An indicated total of $92,139,000 taxes levied for collection this year is 2.7 per cent above the 1936 figure, 19.8 per cent higher than the 1935 total and about $900,000 higher than the tax burden levied in 1931 for collection in 1932. Four .of the 99 counties in the slate, with a probable total tax burden of less than $2,500,000 among them, have "not yet reported their 1937 lax totals to the slate board. J If the homestead lax relief bill before the legislature finally is accepted in its present form, it is estimated that owner-occupied homesteads w i l l receive about $10,000,000 refunds from the state sales and income tax collections. Homesteads, however, are figured to total about one seventh of the stale's real estate valuation. Levied in 1929. ' Peak of property taxes was the $110,754,929 total levied in 192'J for collection in 1930.' The trend from that point was downward until 1935 when the levies for 1936 showed an increase. Institution of a state sales and income tax in 1934 however, throws, the comparisons somewhat out of line since this new tax money replaced the state property levy until the 1936 tax collection year. Following are the totals by tax collection years since 1930: 1930 '.$110,754,929 1931 110,307,034 1932 : 100,247,342 1933 91,243,765 1934 81,162,514 1833 76.889,933 1936 89,716,918 1937 . 92,139,000* 'Approximate. Based on the figures of 95 coun- les, taxes collected this year in ural districts will be 2.8 per cent ligher than in 1936. Taxes collected in cities and towns will be 2.2 Jer cent above the preceding year. Tollowing are the tax figures by counties lor 1935'and 1937: 'uneral Rites for ; - Kittle Miller HeH Funeral services for Kittle H. Miller, 68, who died at the home of her son, F. H.
