KENUEO'S "It's serf ef a 'SILENT PARTNER' arrangement." Even with taxes . . . our price* are RIGHT! & LEO'S Phillips ''66" Service Phone 967 East Slate St. IF IT'S NEWS WE WANT IT CHB18 REEtt A tltil* of tWi. * LlitM AI fktls Hoi Muck At Saturday was really a day 6$ political talks, thoughts and so forth because on account of I heard more political chatter Saturday afternoon than I've heard for years, so to speak. Principally the chatter had to do the most with the six gents who were the candidates for the mayor's office. And I met up with and visited, politically, with a lot of gents and according to them we would have fix mayors now. But Tuesday's vote decided the question and we elected only one gent for mayor. But it really was fun quizzing Toters as to their standing on the mayor election question. And according to my political visits and talks with a large number of gents that afternoon I was inclined to believe that one of the six would be our next mayor, so to speak. No I didn't do any betting on the question but 1 heard plenty of other gents makir/g bets on the mayor election outcome. Anyway", the mayorship campaign was interesting ana exciting. With six gents out for the office what could one expect? . T Q-—" II was over the weekend thai the weatherman handed us plenty of wintry and windy breezes. And especially Sunday did we experience almost tornado push on the part of the winds. Personally I enjoyed the strong breexes and beskles that they proved of the most helpful nature 10 me because on account of my lawn was cleared of millions of leaves and I didn't have to do one bit of raking of leaves. Of course that was not so good for my neighbors whose lawns received the strewn leaves off my lawn but I have a rake and stand willing to help the neighbors rake my leaves off their lawns, if the winds don't help clear their lawns too, so to speak. D. L. Leffert, living just across the street south of me. suggest- ed (hat I do some arilhmaticinR on the leaf question because on account of he felt he would be interested in knowing just how many leaves from my lot were blown across the slrSet to his lot. And I'd be glad to do the arith- maticing taut I find there isn't an adding machine can count up into the several billion. However, I'm sure happy that he didn't get all heated up because of my generosity in delivering thousands and thousands of my leaves to his lawn and garden spaces. Would you have any idea as to the number of motor vehicles in Iowa? Well, I didn't have the least idea as to the number so I wrote to the Motor Club of Iowa and I received their figures and their estimates as to the number on the increase for the year. I was told that Iowa will have an estimated 1,179,000 motor vehicles on the road by the end of this year and this represents an increase of 3.1 per cent over last year. And it is estimated that by January 1st there will he in this country 50,954,000 passenger cars and 10,347,000 trucks and buses on our roads, and brother, that's some total. And as to some arithmaticing—if each ibus or truck or car takes an average of 21 gallons of gas for a fill, and just figuring that each vehicle has a filling day once a week, just think of it, that means a total of 1,287,321,000 gallons of fuel per week, and look what that means in a year's time, 66,940,692,000. And with the average cost of near 30c per gallon that would indicate that there is a lot of dollars spent for motor fuel. Anyhow, it was fun doing this arithmaticing and it was also surprising as to the big figures in gallons of gas, so to speak. —o— And, oh yes, you have been paying an extra one cent per gallon for your gasoline since July 1st. And this means 18 or 20 cents extra every time you fill your tank. So if you fill your tank once a week you are paying approximately $10 more each year. Totaled among all Iowa motorists it adds up to S8 million extra in the Iowa treasury each year, after refunds have been made for non-highway use. For what it is worth. Iowa is not the only state to hike its gasoline tax this year. There are twelve other states following suit to the tune of some $187 million extra across the nation, so to speak. Most, of those stales arc eastern. Iowa, Wisconsin and North Dakota are the more centrally located. But we do a lot of driving and really aren't bothered much about the gas tax increase. And maybe within a few years we'll be using a different fuel in our cars because on account of there is now being created a new power, trje foundation of which is known as atomic, and the clay will probably come when we won't be using gasoline at all, so to speak.
