VA'TltO-NOi FLAGMAN MEETS WITH COMMITTEE HEADS ON DRIVE Importance of Tin in War Effort Shown in Conference North Iowa hasn't even started to collect tin cans. It u-ill have to start and start scon if it is to do its share in winning this war. Every tin can that goes into the garbage collection instead of to the salvage committee is just another vote for Hitler. In Mason City's recent tin can collection less than 10 per cent of the residents of the community participated. Tin is a vital need for the war effort, supplies having been cut off by the Japs. If tin cans are to be collected they must be collected now because commercial use of cans will be diminishing rapidly from this time on. ¥ * ¥ These were some of the matters discussed with Herbert C'. Flagman, Des Moijits. slate chairman of the Iowa salvage program, a( a meeting here Tuesday afternoon. Among those attending the conference w e r e Mayor Arleigh Marshall, Mrs. -H. D. Makcever, county chairman of the women's salvage division; Mrs. H. C. Pendergraft, Mason City chairman; Earle C. Behrend, county salvage chairman: L. A. Page, Mason City salvage chairman; F. W. Krueger. county dealer chairman of the grease campaign; City Manager Herbert T. Barclay, and representatives of Mason City bottling companies. * V * In Mason City the collection o£ tin cans has and will be handled by the city. Upon being warehoused the cans are turned over to the Citizens Victory committee for shipment. The cans are shipped to a detirming plant in East Chicago, where they britis; S12 a long ton of 2.240 pounds. Shipping costs are S5.40 a ton, leaving a net of S6.40 a ton for the local organization, providing no other expenses are incurred. However, it takes 9,000 'tin cans to make a ton. Bottling companies have agreed to help in hauling the cans from the storage place to the tracks when they are to be loaded * * * Biggest job for the bottling companies, however, is that of picking up tin cans in surrounding communities in this and other North Iowa counties while tntck- crs are making their -rounds. All tin cans must be processed and placed in boxes so they can he lifted on the truck without difficulty. No paint or condensed milk cans are to be used. * * * No. ID, or gallon cans, are not to be processed but turned over to bottling companies. Mr. Flagman stated that some towns had passed ordinances prohibiting disposal of tin cans in the garbage, resulting in a 25 per cent decrease in garbage volume and a large increase in tin cans for the war effort. Many North Iowa communities, he said, have not really gotten into the tin s^an collection. "'People just don't realize how important tin cans are to the war effort," he said.

FLICKIXGEK (Lock photo) WAR MEASURES Knudson Says Members Cautious About Change in Income Tax Law Concensus of the Iowa legislators seems to be that their time should be devoted almost exclusively to measures involving the war effort, reported Herman M. Knudson, Cerro Gordo county representative, who was home Tuesday for a one day visit with his son, Ensign Ted Knudson, en- route to Boston, Mass * * * There seems to be no overwhelming sentiment for repeal of the income tax, he reported on the basis of four days of association with the other members of the legislature. The slogan is: "Proceed with caution." * * * Gas rationing has just started, the all-out war effects are just beginning to be felt. The result on taxes, including gas tax, sales lax and others, cannot yet be determined. There is no wish to change the income tax until it is I known whether it will be neces- i sary to dip into such funds t o ' meet needs previously taken care of by other taxes. Emergency powers for the governor are essential,- lawmakers are agreed, but they will be definitely limited to the duration of the . war, Mr. Knudson said. Financing of civilian defense is another matter which must be handled, he said. School code revision, bonuses for servicemen and aid to dependent children may have to wait until afler the war, it .Mr. Knudson correctly interpreted sentiment in the legislature. It seemed lo be, "We've gotten alone so far; maybe it can wait just a little longer." * * * It will be easier to foretell legislative action after working committees have been appointed, he said. Presiding officers of the two houses are expected to announce the appointments late this week or early next week, he said. Again in Allied Cause AT A U. S.

S. Proposal President Roosevelt has approved a plan for two major money-raising campaigns for relief activities this year, one in the spring by Ihc American Reel Cross and the other in October for "u national war fund." The latter will replace Ihe various individual campaigns for the united service organizations, community chest and council, those of certain state war chest organizations and the drive of. major foreign relief agencies. * * * Mason City and Cerro Gordo comity already have a war chest organization for central financing of war appeals, it's first campaign having been held last November when nearly £80,000 was raised in the county.. The war chest is registered with the president's war relief control board, which has approved it's budget estimate and interim report, showing the results of the first campaign. v ¥ '# J£ The war cliest in Cerro Gordo county also includes as one of its agencies, the Mason City Community Chest, which is in turn composed of II Mason City social agencies. The entire facilities of the Community Chest were placed at the disposal o£ the war chest in carrying out its campaign and are now being used in the collection of its funds in Mason City. The Cerro Gordo county Red Cross chapter is planning a spring campaign to raise its share of. a national war fund. The formula for the two campaigns throughout the nation was presented in a report in Washington of the war relief control board ot which Joseph E. Davics, former ambassador lo Russia and to Belgium, is chairman. Davies said that Winihrop Aidrich of New York had agreed to assemble a group of organizing trustees for the national war fund.
