MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 23 1930 f · It" .' c U, S, TANKS HOLD EDGE ON ITALIAN in Latest American Model Run of 1,075 Miles in 32 Hours. _ WASHINGTON, (-Pi--Neither in size, power nor armament can the high speed tanks used by Italy's flying columns in Ethiopia measure up to the American army's latest land "destroyers." This was revealed Thursday in a SEVENTEEN comparison of available data on the equipment employed by Italian forces in North Africa with the specifications of the light tank developed i by the Rock Island, III., arsenal. The latter has been adopted as the standard army machine. The latest American model, representing some improvements over others of its type, recently completed a record test run from Dallas, Tex., to Rock Island, using a Diesel engine for the first time. It covered the 1,075 miles in 32 hours. Against an average speed of 45 miles an hour attained by this machine on parts of its run, the top speed credited to Italian tanks in Ethiopia is 25 miles. The American tank is capable of a maximum speed of 00 miles. lowan Escapes From Bull; Loses Clothes JOLLEY, OP)--Although he was practically nude when he escaped from an enraged bull by tightly grasping the animal's nose.

MEANS THERMOLYZED TUNG OIL ... and Theimo- lyzed Tung Oil is the latest development in the paint industry ... a new "liquid part" for paint. Long ago. paint experts recognized the vastly superior waterproofing and preserving qualities of Chinese Tung Oil, but certain natural peculiarities permitted only a small use o[ it in their products. Even 1he finest of spar varnishes and marine enamels contained only small per-gallon quantities and Tung Oil was never used in house paint. Now. by their patented Thermolyzing {heat treating) process O'Brien chemists have modified Tung- Oil so that it offers an ideal vehicle ior varnishes and enamels, and, above all, house paintl T.T.O. Hciise Paint is one of the most improved products ever offered in the industry's history. It looks like enamel. It washe» like glass. It wears like iron.

Peck *"*' Necessity for Economy Is First Plank, Sioux Cityan Asesrts. George R. Call of Sioux City, republican aspirant for the governorship, was a visitor in Mason Cily Thursday. Son of George C. Call, he was bom at Algona 37 years ago but has lived in Sioux City since 1902. "My campaign," said Mr. Call, "bottoms on my deep-seated, conviction that government has become too expensive in Iowa, that taxes are too high and must be reduced if we are to have a real prosperity." Mr. Call, who has been active in the American Legion, made it clear that he was not seeking office at the instance of any group or any individual. It Was His O\vn Idea. "It was my own idea," he declared. "In my own personal business 1 have been severely affected by the mounting taxation. I know thousands of my neighbors have. I believe ^ something- can be done about it an ' I'm willing to make the attemp I'm not knpcking any other republi can candidate." In discussing his platform th Sioux City man, president of th Call Bond and Mortgage compan founded by his father, urged tha agriculture be placed on a parit with industry, advocated putting li quor under the control of a nor partisan commission, declared hi opposition to sales taxes except a a definite off-set to property taxes called for a drastic reduction of ve hide and gasoline taxes, expresse favor for a "sensible social securit law" and denounced "this phantom super-government which has it claws upon the throat of some of th officials of our state government. GEORGE R. CALL 20' Phone -134 Against Reckless Spending. "I do not approve of the presen trend of reckless expenditures b either the state or national govern ment, so greatly in excess of reve nues," he declared. "The expends tures of th state of Iowa must b cut to conform to the capacity o citizens to pay without confiscatior of property or destruction of in itiative. "Agriculture, nationally, must b placed on a parity with industry A tariff that protects industrj should also protect the farmer. Pro duction should nor. be restricted t the point where it becomes neces sary to import corn and beef ti meet the domestic demands. "I do not approve of the elimina tion of any property from a tai for the advantage of a favored few All forms of property, includin; houses, farms and city propert; must be equally saved from tax con fiscation by adequate statutory an constitutional protection. Local Option for Liquor. "I believe that intoxicating' Jig uors should be taken out of politic and controlled by a non-partisan commission, subject to the wish o: the people in the different commun. ities of the state. "I do not approve of any tax which has for its purposes the confiscation of any business. Those businesses which enjoy a special economic advantage, should be compelled to pay only a reasonable tax for that advantage. "I think the vehicle and gas taxes should be reduced. The high vehicle and gasoline taxes are restricting the normal, use of om highways. I do not think it is right to divert these taxes to ther than road improvements. The state should curtail unnecessary and extravagant improvements and center more of our attention to the secondary or farm to market roads. "I am in favor of a sensible old age pension or social security law for Iowa. Against "Supergovcrnntent." "And, lastly, I believe it is the function of government to protect all lives, property and the well being of its citizens. It must not invade or dominate private business. We must insist on honesty and integrity in our state 'government. "We must not stand by and see our state employes threatened by political hangerson, and paying toll for fear they will lose their jobs. "We must not see people who are in dire need of help compelled to sell their 'rights of franchise' before they are helped by being- put on relief projects. "This phantom, supergovernment, that has its claws upon the throat of some of the officials of our state government, and which is taking its toll from the distressed and needy, must be torn down by the people of Iowa. "It is time to clean house."

So- I up and told her That wife of mine is a swell person, but she's done nothing but experiment with cofiee for the last six months. She's fussed with this and she's fussed with that. I've seen her experiment with half a dozen different ways of measuring the coffee and water. She's tried all systems of making her coffee. She's hopped around from one brand to another. And we haven't gotten anywhere. So, last night, I up and told her: Let's get back to Hills Bros. Coffee--and stick with it. I don't know what it's got. They talk about Controlled Roasting, and ground right to taste right, and vacuum- packing--and a lot of other reasons why it'sbetter.Anyhow.Iknow we get a lot more pleasure out of drinking coffee when we use Hills Bros.
