Two Iowa Brothers Run for Same Office on Different Tickets IOWA CITY, UP)--The political ambitions of the Horst family here run along ' parallel lines,' and two brothers, Phillip and Harry, both know what they want But blood is thicker than water and the brothers will not scrap about it unless it becomes absolutely necessary. Today they filed nomination papers for township constable Philip on the republican ticket, and Harry on the democratic. Since two constables are elected in the township, both men have a chance to win. "We may have to throw a little mud at each other but it will all be in good fun,' 1 they said.

(Central Press Kioto) STANDARD OIL PROFITS GAINING Total $30,000,000 After Tax Payment of $81,000,000 Was Made in 1935. CHICAGO--The pamphlet report of Standard Oil Company of Indiana, released to stockholders Thursday, shows this company and its subsidiaries, enjoyed in 1935 the best year's business since 1930. Profits totaled $30,179,895 or $1.98 a share on 15,215,677 sharees outstanding- at the end of the year, as compared with $18,949,680, or $1.25 a share in 1934. Part of the increase is due, the report explains, to-changes in manner of charging expenditures on oil wells and depreciating value of plants, but straight increase in operating profits was responsible for more than half the gain shown. In Strong Condition. As of the end of the year the company had net working capital $170,876,327, including $65,428,- 442 in cash, marketable securities and short-term commercial notes. The ratio of current assets to current liabilities was 6 to 1. The report 'Shows that of a total of $367,086,054 which customers and others paid to Standard and Its subsidiaries in 1935 $67,948,954 went to employes, 5187,347,903 were paid out for raw materials, supplies, and other operating expenses, $81,327,018 were passed on to governments in payment of taxes, and $30,179,895 were earned for stockholders. Tax problem Important. Commenting on the tax problem, Edward G. Seubert, president of the company, states that for several years the oil industry has been objecting to the size of the tax burden piled on Its properties, processes, and products. "The protest has not been due to any inclination to shirk a reasonable share of the task of financing government," he declares, "but to a growing sense of outrage that this one Industry and its customers should be continually called upon to pay new and additional taxes. * "Taxation- of the industry has reached the point where practically as large a share of the results of its production is diverted to sup- jort of government as to compensation of its own workers."
