I Safe Confidential Accommodating IOWA It was the other day while hav ing a cup of coffee with an Al gona Gulper that we got to talking distances anfl he made the remark that Iowa was right in the middle of the United States and I admitted that it might be near the middle but Nebraska was also a part of the middle of the United States. And so that night I done some arithmaticing as to distances in this country and I found that the west half of Iowa and, the east half of Nebraska constitute about the middle of this wide country, so to speak. I dug up some mileage figures put out by the American Automobile Association and so here we have it — from New York to Kearney, Nebraska, there is a /spread of 1,839 miles and from Kearney Nebraska, to San Francisco there is a spread of 1,626 miles so you can see that the Neb' faska town is pretty well cen trally located in this United States. As for Iowa distance there are 1,234 miles between NeSv York and Ames and 2,031 miles between Ames and San Francisco So can figure just How much it would ftost you to drive to San Francisco from Ames according to the miles per gallon your bus operates on, so to speafc. .—o—> Yep, income tax figuring is the present big business and problem by everybody this month, so to speak. And another horrible, ter- •ific, sorrowful thing about the ncome tax figuring is the fact hat you are digging up .more income tax this year, because on iccount of income taxes are a bit lieher than'they 'were last,- year, ^he state tax commission estimates that the total state, income ax revenue this year will be bout $2,800,000 greater than the 24,970,773 collected in 195S. So >ve will kick in a total this time f $27,770,775 and that means an dded buck for each man, woman nd child in the state, so to speak. The amount increased for people Algona Member.

Ac cording to the bureau there are now 166,280,000 Americans in his United States. And that's a ot of Americans. Of course you understand that whether or 'not vou are a Dane, or Norwegian or f any other foreign background, now that you can vote here you're n American first. In other words must consider myself an Ainer- can Dane, so to speak. And that's ight, I am. an American, even though I.brag about being a Dane from a background standpoint And even though I can sing, speak or write Danish, I'm still nappy and proud over my American citizenship. And, on top of that I am also a democrat, and of which I am also proud and bragging. Yep, I was a state senator in the 45th General Assembly, a democrat elected in a republican senatorial district, Marshall county, and there were times when I voted along with the republicans, but I still bragged about being a democrat.

At the present-time we art getting sleet, and I mean sleet practically raining ice drops anc the streets are sure getting plen ty slippery, so to speak. Just talked to Claude Whitehill and he felt that gents and cars shouk take on skates because on account of the sleekness of sidewalks and streets was getting to a point where walking with rubbers on even was a matter of slip and slide. And Harry Barton told me that if the slipperyness goi much worse he intended to have chains put on his shoes to help make walking easier. And Dick Sorensen said he was fixing up overshoes which had been soled with chain fixings and which made strolling easy for him. Don Sherman said he thought it would be smart for a gent to carry a pail of ashes along and when the walks became too slick just peddle a handful of the ashes ahead of you and that would take care of slipping. And Leighton Misbach suggested that a gent carry some hot water with him -and melt the more slippery spots on his way to work. Yep, it was icy and slippery Thursday, and not one bit of fun either. But that's winter for you. State College and hopes to graduate this year, with a major in zoology and specialization in wildlife conservation.
