WB--De cided upturns in revenues from Iowa gasoline, beer and inheritanc taxes during: April provided cheer ing financial news for state of ficiala today. Receipts from these three source of the state income were well abov 51,100,000, records of the stat treasurer showed for the month an a corresponding gain was antic! pated in cigaret tax collections. Gasoline taxes brought in $901, 612.32 as contrasted with $763, 580.71 in March and $762,618.59 in April of 1933. At the same time re funds this month, under -the new law, declined to only $27,263.48, as contrasted with $66,416.65 in March and $70,471.50 in April, 1933. More Beer Taxes. Receipts from the state beer tax and beer permits advanced to $96,501.27 whereas this source had produced only $36,600.50 in the preceding month.

"I understand now why so many people are talking about and praising this Gly-Cas," said Mr. Phillip Pitzenberger, Route No. 1. Swale- dale, Iowa, well known local farmer who has lived in this vicinity all his life. "And because of this Gly-Cas MR. PHILIP PITZENBEKGEB I am today enjoying good health. I had been in a miserable condition with rheumatism. I was clear down for three weeks unable to do any work at all. And regardless of what I tried I could get no better: My feet, hands and knees were tha most affected, and the pains, constant aching and. misery I endured at times were almost unbearable. But Gy-Cas came to ray rescue and today I.feel I am entirely well, able to do a full hard day's heavy farm work and suffer no ill effects afterwards. I am free of that rheumatism and actually like a new man. It is with pleasure I tell others about Gly-Cas and if anyone wishes first hand information just call at my home, 5 miles northwest of Swaledale, southwest of Mason City." And so it goes--another case right here in this section, is it any wonder Gly-Cas has become the most highly praised and indorsed medicine ever introduced in this section--while .it was just introduced here a few short weeks ago. Gly-Cas is sold and recommended by Michael Drug Co., 5 South Federal Ave., Mason City, Iowa. lections. Thia was a gain of $73,953.30 over April, 1933, when the income was J56.209.81. Inheritance Levies High. The total inheritance tax collections for the first four months of the year also was the highest for the same period of any year since 1930. The fourth month period produced $319,285.97 while in the same period of 1933 the total was $277,388.75. Of the gasoline tax receipts $500,000 was allocated to the primary road fund, $100,000 went to secondary roads. $1,455.88 to the refund and administration account and $156.14 to the sales tax fund.

The Territory of Iowa had been in existence scarcely more than a year before some of the people began to think about forming a state. Everybody understood that the Territorial form of government under the control of congress and the president was only temporary. Settlers were com ing rapidly. The population doubled in the two years before 1838 and again in the following two years, numbering more than 43,000 in 1840. More land was purchased from the Indians. The natural resources of soil and minerals began to produce wealth. Under such circumstances the people of Iowa would soon be willing to take the responsibility of governing themselves and paying their own political expenses. Robert Lucas, the first governor of Iowa Territory, started the movement for statehood on Nov. 4, 1839, when he advised the legislature to ask congress for permission to organize a state government. Most of the legislators, however, thought Iowa was not ready to become a state. The people had plenty of liberty under the Territorial government, they argued. Admission to the union would increase taxes which few of the settlers could afford until they had paid ".or their farms. The disapproval of the legis- ature did not change the cpin- on of Governor Lucas. He made the democratic sugges- ;ion that the people should be allowed to vote on the ques- ;ion. At the election in August, 1840, the voters wrote "Convention" on their ballots if they iavored statehood, and "No Convention" if they were opposed. Less than a fourth of them wanted to form a state government. The great majority saw no need for a change. More than a year passed before the question of statehood was again considered. The legislature asked for another expression of opinion at the August election in 1842, but most of the voters were still satisfied with the Territorial government. They were glad to have the United States pay the expenses of Iowa government. Again the movement of statehood was checked. Meanwhile, however, condi- ;ions were changing. The population grew to more than 75,000 by May, 1844. Many of-the PROPOSED BOUNDARIES OF IOWA settlers had finished paying for their land. The national government offered to help new states build roads, schools, and other improvements to lighten the local tax burden. Political leaders were anxious to have a bigger share in national affairs. Finally, in April, 1844, the people decided by a large majority to form a state government. The way to admission into the union was open, but the path was steep and rough. The convention which met in the Old Stone Capitol at Iowa City OB Oct. 7, 1844, finished the work of writing a state consti- ;ution in 26 days. Though the 73 men who composed the convention had many lively de- )ates, they all knew the kind of government their neighbors vanted. Salaries were kept ow: $800 a year was considered enough for the governor. Slavery was prohibited but segroes were not allowed to ·ote. Banks were so unpopular ;hat none could do business vithout the specific consent of ;he people. In area the new state was to include all of the ;erritory north of Missouri between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers as far as the Minnesota river and a line from the mouth of the Blue Earth river to the mouth of the Big Sioux river. Thus Iowa would lave extended north to Minneapolis and St. Paul. Governor Lucas proposed these limits and so they were called the Lucas boundaries. When Iowa applied for state- lood, Florida had been ready ior several years. It was the practice then to admit states .n pairs; one slave and one free. The bill for the admission of Iowa into the Union also included Florida. Thus the fate of Iowa depended not on the Blaze Destroys Barn, Hoghouse and Silo on Riggs Farm at Nashua NASHUA, April 30.--Shortly af- :cr Ivan Riggs, fanner 4 miles from Nashua, had put his team in the jam, during the noon hour Monday, he noted that the structure was on fire. The barn burned and flames also destroyed a hog house and wood silo. The loss, which also included several pig3 and a horse, was estimated at ?3,000. Riggs was able to get one horse out but the lames spread so rapidly that he was unable to save anything else. The jlaze is of unknown origin. jets Contract to Furnish Fixtures for Liquor Stores The Fisher company of Charles City announces it has received a :ontract from the state of Iowa to urnish fixtures and equipment for the state controlled liquor stores.

Blue Earth Man Held in Chicago for Theft of Car and Chickens CHICAGO, April 30. O?)--Harold Arbucklc. 20, a farm hand of Blue Earth, Minn., was held by the po- number, ability, or wealth of our people, not on the form of government described in our constitution, but on the problem of balancing slave labor in the south with free labor in the north in order to preserve both. Northern anxious to statesmen make as were many states as possible out of the northwestern territories. When the Iowa bill came before congress, the Lucas boundaries were criticized. Iowa would be too large. After some debate the lines were changed. Only that part of Iowa Territory south of the parallel that runs through the mouth of the Blue Earth river and east of the meridian 17 degrees and 30 minutes west of Washington was included. These were called the Nicollet boundaries because a surveyor by that name, who had recently explored the Des Moines valley and published a map of the country, suggested such limits for the new state. With this .amendment the bill admitting Iowa and Florida into the Union passed congress and became a law on March 3, 1845. But the process was not yet complete. While congress was debating about the proper size of" a free state, the people of Iowa were discussing other parts of the constitution. A few were still opposed to statehood. The Whigs found fault with some provisions because the Democrats had proposed them. When congress changed the boundaries, however, many of the former advocates of the constitution turned against it. And so the people of Iowa rejected the first state constitution. Believing that the voters had been confused by the action of congress, the Territor- ial legislature again submitted the constitution with the Lucas boundaries. But again it was rejected. Iowa refused to join the union in 1845. Confident that the people of Iowa really wanted state government, another convention met in the capitol at Iowa City on May 4, 1846, to draft a new constitution. There were only 32 delegates and they finished their work in IS days. In the constitution of 1846 some of the most severely criticized faults of the constitution of 1844 were corrected. The boundary question was settled by adopting the parallel of 43 degrees and 30 minutes as the northern line and the Missouri and Big Sioux rivers on the west. While the people of Iowa were making and debating the new constitution of 1846, congress was reconsidering the boundaries. Territorial Delegate Augustus C. Dodge asserted that the Nicollet lines would never be accepted. He thought the compromise boundaries ought to be approved. If the members of congress should insist on a smaller area, he declared that "they might as well pass an act for our perpetual exclusion from the union. His arguments were successful and the new lines were accepted. President Polk signed the amendment on Aug. 4, 1846. Just one day before, the people of Iowa adopted the state government as provided in the new constitution. The contest was unusually close. Out of 18,528 votes the advocates of statehood obtained a majority of only 456. State officers were elected in October and on Dec. 3, Ansel Briggs was inaugurated as the first governor of the state of Iowa. Twelve days later a copy of the constitution was presented to congress for approval. A bill of admission into the union was promptly passed and signed by the president. Iowa became a state on Dec. 28, 1846. Activity Hints. 1. Have a debate on the question: "Resolved, that the Lucas boundaries would have been better than the present boundaries of Iowa." 2. Read more about the admission of Iowa into the union in the .February, 1934, number of the "Palimpsest." 3. Organize the class as a convention and proceed to draft a state constitution. Benjamin F. Shambaugh's "Constitutions of Iowa" will be helpful. Next week: "Capitals of Iowa." lice for Sheriff W. H. Keigley of Faribault, Minn., on charges of stealing an automobile and 30 chickens.
