Clerk. And just to show how coffee gulping is progressing I done some arithmaticing about the membership in the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpers as it has been doing in the past two months and I am really surprised, astonished and astounded at the figures showing how folks become gulpers of the splendid and beloved gulping of Java, so to speak. Since the first of November 'I have mailed 1276 coffee gulping membership cards to gulpers in 29 different towns in seven different states, and. that's really going some, so to sp£ak. As for distance there was one dozen signed up in Palm Beach, Florida, when ah Iowa member spending the winter there sent me the names of the Gulpers. And »the seven states are Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin. And it just goes to show that people love their coffee and are glad to belong to an organization of coffee lovers. I sure wish there was some way in which I could procure the number of cups of coffee which were extra per day besides the meal cup, and I'll bet the figure-would run into millions and millions every day, so to speak. , Yep, this is tax lime and what a mess of figuring and typing and so forth it really is. There's the federal tax to draw up, the state tax to draw up and the local tax to draw up, and I'm sure glad I have mine fixed, and I know how much taxes arc charged to me both by the United States and Ihe state, to say nothing of the local receiver. I'm still in favor of the taxing system which takes your total income and charges so much and that's the end of it. And just look to what extent the federal, the state and, the local tax receiving treasurers are taking in the dough, so to speak. And just look to what millions in dollars are being received. Of course the federal, the state and the local- governments have to have money. But I . still believe in the system whereby your share of taxes should be split understandingly and therefore could be lowered considerably. Yep, taxes should be considerably lowered, that is, income taxes, and of which I'm in hearty favor, so to speak. Yes, fix ihe income lax on the man who is a daily laborer, much more reasonable, lower them, and jet the gent who has,;the grand r sort of income dig up"a bfE'tntlre proportionally comparble to tax of the laborer, so" to speak. Yes, it's my opinion that- Hie corn- parison of taxes paid by the gent whose income nets him thousands in a year's tirne and those of the gent whose income is only through hand labor, is not just right. Sure, At' & gent cleans up say $10,000 a year, he should dig up a bit higher taxes than the gent whose top income in a year is less than $3,000, so to speak. II was ihe diher night at 6 bells and I was having my supper and the phone rang and an Algona gent called and asked me had I finished my dinner. And I told him that 1 had finished my dinner that day at 12 bells, noon. And then he laughed and told me I should look up the pronouncement of meals and I'd find that I had lunch at 12 bells, noon, and dinner at 6 bells, evening. And I didn't need to look that up because 'on account of I'm not wealthy and hence 1 eat dinner at 12 bells, noon/ And so it was that I checked up and done some questioning among my gent friends and I found that those two meals are named according to the size of a gent's bank account. If he has property and money in the bank which exceeds the $500 to $2500 maybe ajrd lives in his own house and has a big car then he becomes of the type which cats dinner at 6 bells and the supper pronouncement has been abandoned, so to speak. Maybe you hadn't thought of this, before, but check amongst your friends and you'll find that the more of wealth they may have the more their dinners are served at supper time, so to speak. And, now ain't that something? And here it is now ihe middle of January and we've hot had any real below zero weather in 1956. And maybe we're going to experience another winter session like we did some years ago when January was almost spring and way into February and then the last week in February brought days and days of below 7,ero marks and blizzards aplenty. Do you remember that? I'm not just sure but it seems that this happened in the laic thirties. So, maybe we should expect another such weather in winter demonstration this year, because on account of so far we haven't suffered too much by way of honest to goodness below zero and blizzard conditions, so to speak.
