.-1 TWO TURNER LASHES IOWA SALES TAX Claims Gross Income Tax Is to Interests of "Big Business." DECORAH, May 9.--Dan Turner, former governor of Iowa, and candidate for the republican nomination, speaking here yesterday styled the sales tax a "nuisance" tax, and stated that the- proposed gross income tax was to the interest of "big" businessmen, not to the interest of the rank and file of the people. The gross sales tax, would be, in his judgment, "political bunk," and would cost the state 25 per cent of the amount collected to administer it. Speaking of taxes, Mr. Turner stated he was the first candidate for governor four years ago to go out and fight for the reduction of taxes. Another improvement suggested by the republican candidate for gov ernor was lower interest rates. HI expressed the opinion that the fed eral government should furnish loans to home and farm owners a small interest rates, possibly 2 pe cent and that the governmen should get behind the farmer an give him a chance to pay for hi J-ome and farm, and make an.effor to give him back his purchasin power. "The"' biggest problem." continue the former governor, "is to return this purchasing power to th farmer, to reduce his taxes, to rais . his price level, to get the farme to stay on his land, to bring low back, and to put agriculture bac on a oar with other industries." The" former governor spoke las evening at West Union.
