Algeria, (la.) Upper Dw Moines Tuesday, August 23, 1966 all levels have sky-rocketed upward rapidly since World War n - AND THE GUY THAT TRIES TO PAY THE BILL -THE TAXPAYER- HAS NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT 1 Meanwhile, expenditures on roads and many other items, continue to force the taxpayer to tighten his belt a little more. And Mr. Average Taxpayer doesn't get any automatic pay increases to take up the slack (like government employees or persons employed by other government agencies) at least in this area. And what does the cost of living index mean to most workers in Iowa? Nothing, except having to skimp more every year to pay the bills incurred for every day living. And the situation makes it tougher on the average small businessman, also. It's difficult for him to give raises that will help (and stay in business), so the employee problem becomes more acute each year, also. When you stop and think about it, if s too bad all form s of government in this nation can't be run by real, down- to-earth businessmen who have the know how to operate at a profit. They probably couldn't show a profit running government, either, but Til bet they could come closer than is being done now. Someday, the balloon will burst, we'll wind up with a doozy of a depression, things will get back on an even keel - and the bread line forms at the right! THIS was so good we had to steal it. A driving examiner on the Isle of Man (don't ask us where that is) issued a plea to girls not to turn up for their driving tests in miniskirts. The examiner, who at 61 is retiring after testing drivers for 27 years, says the miniskirts are an extra peril for the examiners. To quote him "An attractive pair of legs reaching down for the foot controls from a miniskirt is liable to take an examiner's eyes off the road!" After reading this interesting item, we wondered if the fellow might decide not to retire, after all. SIGN in maternity shop - "Wayout Dresses'.' - ?TOOK our Little League ball club out to the State Park the other evening for a picnic- and had a ball. It was held the night after the free watermelon feed, spnsored by service clubs at the Athletic Park, so the kids had a couple of good nights in a row after a rugged season. Naturally, Harlan Steburg and yours truly, coaches of the Tigers, who with our wives hosted the event, had to get in on a ball game on the rough diamond at the park - and some of the plays made in that contest, a nine inning affair, were better than most we had seen during the regular contests. The boyswere probably better without the pressure that is bound to mount when you're playing for a championship. Got us thinking it might be a good idea from now on to dispense with running won-lost records of the clubs in an effort to better the play (which this season was as good, or better than we've seen). By the way we overheard one little guy at the watermelon feed saying, "9 pieces is enough." We'd hope so. Hope there was a rubber sheet on his bed. A teenage girl had just re- don smrth WHEN Circuit Judge Fred W. puke) Slater, 67, died Sunday night, Aug. 14, at his home in Chicago, our thoughts (and those of probably thousands of others who have followed the University of Iowa football team) immediately drifted to some of the stories we had been told about this great tackle, who went on to a place of prominence as a barrister. His work with the Southside Boys' Club, Boy Scouts and with the mayor's commission on human relations in Chicago was almost as well-known as his rugged play for the Hawks without a headgear. Duke once said the reason he played without a headgear was because his father told him he couldn't afford to buy both items for him, so he decided on shoes. The son of a minister, Slater was selected on the All- American team after his senior year of play at Iowa in 1921 - the year the Hawks ended a 20-game Notre Dame winning skein and posted a fine season mark. He played under Coach Howard Jones, who later went on to more fame at Southern Cal. Slater, who succumbed to stomach cancer, was born in Illinois, but played high school football at Clinton, la. He played four years at Iowa as freshmen were eligible when he went there. Duke got his liberal arts degree in 1922 and finished work on his law degree six years later, immediately being named to the Iowa Bar Association. He had been a Chicago judge since 1948, entered a hospital there Mar. 25 and when he found his Illness was terminal, requested he be allowed to die at home, so left the hospital June 1. Many University of Iowa football fans from this areahave probably seen the big, smiling Duke at games at Iowa City without realizing it was he. His attendance at games was quite regular. His exploits on the football field and off are far too numerous to go into here, so we'll just say that Duke, like all men of his caliber, will be sorely missed. PRESENT day young men can be compared to Samson "They're impulsive, brag about their strength and wear their hair too long." THE budget-hearing season is about over - taxpayers everywhere ( or practically so) now have an idea how much higher their 1967 taxes will be than this year, so we asked a few people we have run into on the street recently about hearings, taxes, etc. Boiled down, here are the results in a nutshell. We had an idea why very few people attend such hearings and it was verified. Why don't they attend? Thaf s easy. Taxpayers don't go to such meetings because their protests, if they lodge any, fall on non-listening ears. So, why go? Budgets at Give Yourself the Best! Your home deserves the best. Clean, hard concrete adds beauty and value to your home, and our ready mixed concrete makes it so easy. The right materials, properly proportioned and mixed—and good workmanship—make a driveway of lasting beauty and utility. COWAN CORP.
