Main question lether or not the AAA's . tax, with which it i Its benefits to farmers, is If it isn't, the Adminls- will have to look else- s tor the money. Another involves the bitterly- debated cotton production control act. Two other important administration measures, the Guffey Act and the Public Utility Act, are in the courts, but it will be some tune before they reach the Supreme Court. The Public Utility Act was recently held unconstitutional in its entirety, denounced in strong language by a Federal district judge. The Guffey Act, on the other hand, which established a "little NRA" for the bituminous coal industry, was held constitutional by a Federal court in its first legal test. THE FRUITS OF COOPERATION In a recent address, L. J. Taber, master of the National Grange, told his audience some of the things that cooperation does for the farmer. It gives him a voice in the control of his own affairs, thus increasing his sense of responsibility and his value as a citizen. It makes it possible for him to control the quality of both the commodities he buys and the commodities he sells. It enables him to secure the type of service as to merchandising, packaging, distribution, etc., that best fits his needs. It aids him in bettering the price received for his products, both by increasing his bargaining power and by showing him ways to increase quality. It opens avenues of credit that he could not otherwise obtain. Each of these points is of great importance—and they by no means exhaust the list. The fruits of cooperation are many —and the progressive farmer is benefitting accordingly. CHARGING IT AGAINST THE FUTURE The gravity of the tax problem is well illustrated by figures published in a recent editorial in the Manufacturer's Record which show that during the current year, the federal government's expenditures will be in excess of $10,000,000,000. This is in addition to the spending of state and local governments, which will be above $9,000,000,000, bringing the total government expenses to almost $20,000,000,000. During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1935, the federal gov- little less "YOU SHALL HAVE MUSIC, RUDYI" Among Hip niaiiv * • ••••'".-•) tm lining i>;iiiti HMUtMS who welcomed .lack Ilyltrm, fnmous fon-:.!?!! maestro, | 0 flu- United .States, was Uudy Valleu. the.

NOTICE F PROBATE OF WILL No. 4051 In District Court November Term, 1935 IN PROBATE • WHOM IT MAY CON- [-JAre Hereby Notified That [instrument of writing pur- tf tag to be the last Will and ament of Nydia Stephenson e deceased, dated August 30, '. having been this day filed, led and read, the 30th day [December 1935 is fixed for fftog proof of same at the jurt House in Bedford, Iowa, (ore the District Court of said "y or the Clerk of said 1 a "d at ten o'clock A. M. B day above mentioned, all 18 interested are hereby and required to appear, "" cause, if any they on and taken by virtue of a Special execution issued from the office of the Clerk of the than $1,100,000,000 from corporation and individual income taxes, $526,222,000 from AAA processing and floor taxes, and miscellaneous inte(rnal revenue of $1,674,000,000. The grand total was thus slightly under $3,300,000,000. If collections during the current year are the same — and there is no reason for believing that they will vary greatly either way—the federal government will spend close to $7,000,000,000 more than it receives, in spite of the fact that current taxes are generally believed to be excessively and dangerously high. That $7,000,000,000 must be added to our huge and growing public debt. In brief, of every three dollars the federal government is spending today, it actually has in hand but one dollar—and charges the other two dollars against the future. Every one of those debt dollars bears interest and over a long period of time, even at low federal interest rates, interest costs often rival the principa in size. Those costs can be met only by higher taxes — and, when bonds come due, infinitely higher taxes still are in prospect. The outlook is wholly black— unless the federal government, and all other units of government, make a drastic change in policy. Outgo must be cut to the bone, the budget must be balanced, and every nickel possible must be applied to reducing the debt load, and eventually reducing the tax load. FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE — TAXES Here are two stanzas from a verse that has been making the rounds recently: "When you light the evening lamp You pay a tax. Taxes begin with the cradle and end only in the grave. And today we are taxed more heavily, and in more ways, than we ever were before. Sit down some time and reflect on the taxes, indirect and direct, that you must pay in the course of any day's normal activlies — and you'll get some idea of how necessary real tax reduction is. PUMPKIN PIE MAY HAVE BEEN POPULAR IN 2,000 B. C. TOO Pumpkin pie, that Thanksgiving delicacy prominent on all American tables now, may have been pust as popular in the year 2,000 B. C. as it is in 1935. It is an established historical truth that the first agricultural people in America, the Basket Makers, who antedate even the Cliff Dwellers, cultivated the common pumpkin. Discoveries have been made in ancient ruins in the Southwest of fragments of pumpkin rind and seeds. In both Colorado and Arizona specimens of rind and seeds have been found, excellently preserved and easily dentified. Wild pumpkins have also been discovered in the Ev- srglades of Florida and Guadaupe Valley in southern Texas. Positive identification of these ancient pumpkin fragments have led scientists to believe ,hat the pumpkin is native to the United States and that it was grown for food undoubtedly as long as 4 centuries ago. A. T. Erwin, vegetable crops specialist at Iowa State College, has examined some of these early rinds and seeds, now care- iully preserved in the Peabody Musium at Harvard University and in the Colorado State Historical Museum, and confirms the opinion of other experts that they are of the pumpkin family, scientifically referred to as the Cucurbits. The squash, which closely resembles the pumpkin, has not been found in these ancient deposits. sponsors are Inviting all gun cluos and sportsmen's organizations to "crooperate". Each cro-operating club will be asked to contribute a small sum toward a cash prize for the winner. The contest will be conducted on a county unit basis and at the end of the contest each county champion and the "high" man from that group will be named State Champion. Local groups are urged to arrange tor local prizes and inform the sponsor that they intend to enter the contest. Rules are being printed and may be obtained by writing to Hans Mactsen, Cro-Councelor for the North Central Rod and Gun Ulub at Mason City. The sponsors figure that over 25,000 crows can be destroyed in this manner. Stringtown The Creston all school play was put on at Stringtown Tuesday evening, as the third number 01 the lyceum course. The Gas And Shrapnel Strike From The Sky Europeans Arm Against Weapons of Modern Warfare O N June 14, 1917, a hot summer sun baked London. Looking toward the white-capped Channel Londoners s«w strange quicksilver specks in the sky. The specks grew larger became almost like birds moving in a natural mathematical order, and suddenly took on a hor- ~ " rlble realistic form. A squadron of Qerman Oothas sped across the London sky. Fifteen minutes later the Qothas were gone; but frightened Londoners came out of hiding to discover ninety-seven dead and 437 wounded. This first encounter with modern warfare has returned to haunt Eu- attacka from the air as a myth l«. defiance of the laws of phy«le».

Some of us, doubtless, regard health as a matter of course and sometimes lack appreciation of this priceless gift. The sick know best what good health means; they never fail to appreciate a step forward on the road to recovery. Progress during past years, In lessening the sickness and death rate due to tuberculosis has been most encouraging. A quarter-century ago, in 191Q, the death rate from tuberculosis in Iowa was nearly 70 per 100,000. The low rate of 25 per 100,000 was reached last year, in 1934. In other words, whereas 1474 persons died of this disease in Iowa in 1910, the number of fatalities in 1934 had been reduced to 619. Contributions nice lat turkey from Corning.
