OF VITAL CONCERN Perhaps it is not entirely clear to some that there is one Federal program which has accomplished its purpose, and has been a financial life saver as well. We refer to th« Federal farm program. If is true that any program so vast is certain to hove bugs, unpleasantries, some unnecessary pap«»rv/ork, and now and then a government-salaried employee carried away v/ith the job. But on the whole this is one program that has done far more good than most. In the first place, the program seems at this stage to hove brought the lav/ of supply and demand somewhere close together. At least the huge surpluses previously accumulated, have been reduced to workable and practical amounts. In fact now, at this stage. It seems likely that there may be some restoration of production to idled acres. Secondly, the form program stabilized the farm economy and put some much-needed itioney Into agricultural pockets. FOR KOSSUTH COUNTY ALONE IN THE YEARS 1963, 1964, 1965, and 1966 THE FARM PROGRAM PARTICIPATION PAYMENTS TOTALED $15,068,724. Thl» v/as not a govecnment handout, but a program in which the government paid that much out and in turn usually took product in kind which it sooner or later has converted Into federal cash. In Iowa, in those four years, the total payments for participation were 747 million dollars. Farmers in the program, operated at low Interest rates, could either redeem their loan* and sell their grain if prices went up, or keep the compensatory payments and let federal takeover follow. It Is strange, indeed, that v/ith a program to vital to tho agricultural and business life of Iowa, the two United States senators from lov/a have each indicated by their records of voting that they favor "termination" of those programs, 2)ea Moimz HIE.

IOC The foil elections ore pretty important for those in Iowa v/ith on/ agricultural interest af all. Farm programs, their continuation or their termination, are mode in Congress. Senators and Representatives are the ones that govern such programs and appropriations. It //ou!d be well for lowans, if they ore at oil interested in the economy of the state in which they make (Heir living, to check pretty thoroughly the views of candidates for the U.S. Senate and for the Congressional teats on present and future farm programs. To "terrriir-'-jtf:" them would most certainly lead to a repetition of the disasters that struck in the 1930 era — an era, unfortunately, that some never knew and others hove forgotten. SENSELESS VANDALISM Rock Rapids Reporter - V/e would like to have lomeone explain to u», what satisfaction people gel out of vandalism. We j'Jit do not understand what can be in the minds of folks who will go about puncturing tires, breaking out windows, etc. Rock Papids had a mild "spell" of vandal- iim recently—and a lot of damage was done. Unfortunately no one has been caught, but some day, someone is going to "talk" and when they do, we have an idea there will be some folks real sorry that they they got involved. Down at Algono last week someone broke into the public library, sloshed the seats and backs on half a dozen upholstered chairs, de- faced.and slashed many books—and then bent the hands on an old grandfather clock which had been presented to the library more than a half century ago. There is something definitely wrong with a society which produces people of a mentality to carry on such activity. We hope that a few of these defectives can be caught, and a proper example made of them. Possibly that v/ill deter others from following the some paths. POOR JUNIOR ! Rock County (Minn.) Star-Herold: One day when "Junior" v/as fourteen he noticed his father grinning all over when he came from tho office. "Got pinched for speeding but Jake at city hall got tho ticket fixed for me," he said. When "Junior" v/as 15 he v/as with his mother in the family car when she backed into a tree. The damage v/ould easily exceed $100. "We'll say that somebody rammed into it v/hen v/e v/ero parked downtown," she said, "then we'll collect insurance for it because that's what insurance companies are for." When "Junior" v/as sixteen ho listened fo Grandfather about tho "good old days of rationing" when ho made $100,000 black- marketing cars. Tho same night "Uncle John" was bragging that on a good share of his business ho sent no bills and took no checks. Just cash. "Why bo a sucker and lot those punks in Washing- ion got it all?" ho askod. When "Junior" was 17 ho listened one night to his lav/yor uncle bragging about how cuto he'd boon in yetting his client off scott frca in a court case. "It took a little high class arm twisting on ono of the witnesses," ho bragged, "and by tho lime ho got to court wo had it made." "Even if you know they're guilty you never want to pload 'cm guilty because you can't make any money that way," said tho unclo. When "Junior" was 18 his family pulled every possible string to get him a paying scholarship at a coveted Ivy League eastern school. They even lied about the family income to make it soom that "Junior" needed financial aid. Ho didn't make tho grade there but by a &troku of luck ho wangled an appointment to a service academy. "Junior" was having it a bit tough scho- Icislically. An upper classman sold him the answers to iho calculus examination. "Junior" was caught and expelled. On his return home liis mother went into paroxysms of hysterical waopincj over the disgrace. "How could you have clone this to us?" she sobbed.

It lJ neatly wrapped up in a good will for your children, which means they will get $8,000 each. When a •decent interval after the funeral has passed they can drop by the lawyer's office and pick up" their bonanza. If this is the way you are figuring things — which is about the way most retired people seem to be figuring them — you are living in a dream world. This week a40-year-old man, who will be called Whitmore, revealed just what had happened to the estate of his retired father. The estate amounted to roughly $75,000. As of this week, about $12,000 of this, or nearly one dollar out of every six, has gone up in smoke. And the five children still haven't gotten their hands on any money, though the funeral of the father was nearly a-year-and-a-half ago. These are Mr. Whitmore's figures (and as you read them keep In mind that the administration of the estate has been of very high caliber and the integrity of the attorney and courts involved is beyond reproach): What can leave your i you who plan to $24,000 af $8,000 each to your three children do about this matter? 1. You can figure in advance, or right now, thai they aren't going to let you out of the cemetery, once they get you there, to come pound on your lawyer's desk. Which is one reason why the legal profession has been getting by with so much nonsense on estate matters; 2. You can figure, also now, that you have to pay taxes to die as well as to live, and that state and federal governments, no matter what, will probably take a cut out of whatever pot you leave; 3. You can figure, now, that it is an effort for anybody to unravel an estate, especially one involving real estate, and that the attorneys and administrators doing the job are entitled to be paid; 4. You can make certain that you have an honorable lawyer . . . but also a knowledgeable one who knows how costs and taxes can be reduced on an estate. You also can talk to a trust officer In your bank to see if any sort of trust arrangement State inheritance tax $6,884 (This would vary in each slate.) Attorney expense 1,600 Administration expense 1,200 Funeral expenses for father 1,022 Federal estate tax 692 Court costs 191 Then there were bonding costs for the administrator, federal and state Income taxes owed by the father, and a few other odds and ends. The five children probably will get all their money in about two years after the father died, and instead of getting the $15,000 each the father had expected will wind up with about $12,000 each. might be better for your heirs than a will; 5. You can tell your children you don't have as much money as they think you have — you won't have after you die. And remind them they won't get it next Tuesday, and unless they're lucky won't get it even next year. for It.. GOLDEN YEAK 34-pog. bookl.t. fttnrf 50t in coin (no itampt), to D*pf. CSPS, to 1671.
