ALGONA, May 3.--Pointing out hat the problem of taxes is foremost at the present, Robert W. Col- lesh of Des Moines, candidate for he republican 'nomination for governor, urged a permanent limK be ilaced on real estate taxes. The pre- ient situation, he continued, makes t more profitable to rent than to own real estate. Advocating that a limit be placed on the amount of tax on real estate, he said that any other taxes needed should be obtained by other means, such as a classified gross income tax, for example. The importance of reducing taxes, without impairing needed services, was also stressed.. Scores Tax Exempt Securities. "Too much of the nation's wealth is tax exempt," asserted Mr. Colflesh, to a crowd of nearly 100. "No more' exempt securities should be sold. We should be broadminded in our tax views and must relieve real estate of some of its burdens." Mr. Colflesh said that there was no magic means by which property could be relieved of all its taxes. He asserted that one of bis opponents in the nomination hac held forth a system which would wipe out all property taxes. Such promises, he averred, were too strong to be probable. Proud of Republicanism. "I have campaigned the last 11 weeks and I am proud of,my re publicanism," he continued. ''In thi past Iowa has had a government o: republicans but even that has onl; been a majority of the minority. L urge that everyone get out at the polls and vote. "With the great productivity 0 Iowa, it seems absurd to me that the government should use the people's money to put more land into production, such as the Boulder dam project." Donald Hutchins introduced Mr. Colflesh.
