This has been done without any tax increase. — As chairman of the board, Scheppmann has carefully watched all county expenditures, so these improvements could be made. — A vote for Scheppmann on the Independent Ticket assures you of continued acceleration in road building, Economy in county government and improvement in all phases of county business. — Many of Scheppmann's friends regret that they didn't go to the polls last Primary Election day. Vote Nov. 6 for the Independent Candidate For Supervisor, 1st District Henry SCHEPPMANN so that we may continue the county team that has given Kossuth County more permanent blacktop miles of road than any other six counties in Iowa. Debate On Sales Tax Fizzles Out ,- T3fe Dewel-Ridout debate fizzled -about zis fast as it was born. A week ago, incumbent Senator D. E. Dowel, Republican, challenged his Democratic opponent for state senator, Bud N. Ridout, Democrat, to a debate and Ridout accepted. Each candidate was to name three men to .selec'. a site for the debate suitable to both parties. Dcwel said he waived the matter of appointing ".seconds" but a time and place were not mutually agreed upon and this matter dropped by the wayside as the election neared. The two candidates differ on the sales tax- and state reapportionment. Dowel voted both for and against the increase in the sales tax, and favors reapportipnment of state legislative districts on the basis of population which would give cities in Iowa greatei representation in the legislature. Kiclout stands flatly for return to the 2% sales tax and is againsl apportionment, which he say? vould be harmful to the smaller cities and towns and the rural areas, in that they would lose representation to the cities. The present Vi cent sales tax increase, voted by the last session of the legislature, expire? Juno 30, 1957. Its renewal or death will be decided by ihe next legislature, as well as other tax increase recommendations pending until after the election.
