' • 'fOllb wing ; the i last presidential election, a corps of statisticians got'to work to prove that tlie farm vote didn't mean anything anymore. There were fewer farmers, they said, and the electoral'votes from the states termed "farm states" were not numerous on a' comparative basis. The statisticians can throw all their figures out the Window now. The personal popularity of Eisenhower .carried the last election for the Republican^ party. It will certainly have a strong bearing oh the; 1956 election as well, whether:he runs or, ,not. But there have been some other definite political trends which- have had the net- result of. putting the:farm vote back into the picture as perhaps the decisive one on a nationwide basis. The southern states' which gave Eisenhower support as against a traditionally Democratic background, -may still like Ike, but they are not going to vote Republican next year. <• . .. ,The. big-vote states, New York, Illinois, California, Ohio and Pennsylvania for, ejcample, may go. either way. It would not be off base too far to say'that some may be Republican, some Democratic. There are traditionally Republican states elsewhere which might be expected to remain Republican. , —-That brings us to the mid-western farm belt — states like Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Missouri, Kansas and Indiana (as well as Illinois), to name a 'few. How the. voters in th6se states'cast their ballots may well, be th? deciding factor. V ' ! . The next fe\v months may well tell the story, too.

Every -day 7,000 persons are added to our population. By 1970, the United States will have a population of 200,000,000. Iowa, in all probability, will continue to grow, although at a much slower rate.' Here, in Osage the need for additional school buildings will be imperative within a few years. Indeed, the problem here is already acute. In the past four years, the share of each lowan's personal income which has been devoted to school construction alone has increased nearly 100 percent. In 1950, .53 percent of personal income was devoted to school construction. Last year this figure had risen to 1.091 percent. This means that a person earning $4,000 a year was supporting school construction to the tune of $21.20 in 1950 and $43.64 in 1954. Iowa has risen from twenty-third among the states in 1950 to ninth last year in this vital phase of education. Our state ranks fifth in percentage of total income paid in school taxes and Sixteenth in operating expenses per pupil. We must continue to maintain this impressive pace. The only way such a goal can be accomplished is through wiser spending of our tax dollars. * * « The action of some children suggests that their parents embarked on the sea of matrimony without a paddle.—Arcadia (Wis.)
