Mr. Alger's concrete proposal for tax reduction and reform is found in a series of bills known as the Herlong-Baker bills. The principal purpose of these bills is to make major cuts in all tax brackets over a five year period. The lowest rate, now 20 per cent would become 15 per cent; the top rate would be cut from 91 per cent to 4 cent. At the same time, the corporation rate would be reduced, one point a year, from 52 per cent to 47 per cent. This manifestly, would release huge sums for capital investment, and other sources of eoonomic growth. And that, as Mr. Alger views the problem, is the urgent need. He observes, "None can refute that we must look to the savings, principally .of those in the middle and upper brackets, for the venture funds to snooUt }£ ta me ducks as a favor create jobs, start and expand businesses, make pro- . . a . farm er, because the ducks ducts available at prices within reach". Two arguments have been raised in opposition to this program — that, if enacted, would greatly increase the danger of deficit financing by the government, and that it might deprive the will twist •vhat they not what m< an. e with a few appeared in r •.<!>>-• '.',•(•• ks ago tsn« Mallards and not being •i few leaders de- game warden was looking the other way while a friend shot a few ducks out of season.

Well, just to set the straight, and so those won't make o mplett themselves, the whole episode, was strictly within the law. In fact, it was the game warden we were writing about, and he was records people fools • of had become a nuisance. Really nothing to get excited about. We don't know who the people were who were ready to oust the game warden, and really don't government of needed revenues to an extremelv care lo know. However, if we see dangerous extent. Mr. Alger, like the bill's other advrcates, has an answer. First, it is provided that a few subscription cancellations we'll have a mighty giood idea who they were. Leave* of absence fund reservoirs to the Federal Treasury". And, he adds, during years in which we have spent many billions of dollars to help build the strength of our nations "we have ignored at home the very striving to teach abroad, that ad-on wi are rate reductions can be postponed in any year in which an unbalanced budget is threatened.

Who hasn 't heard, for example the old outdoorsman'a tale "f the rattlesnake mates that liuntr-d together, and when one wa .-i killed the other would return to the spot to seek revenge. True or false? TRUTH OR NOT? Or how about the real oldie about the crippled diving duck that goes to the bottom and clamps on to a weed and expires? Just a story, or the truth? Almost every duck hunter has had this story told to him, but none I've talked to have actually seen the duck -lo it. Or the mountain lion stories that occur in Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska with regularity— can a mountain lion live in those states? Numerous people have reported seeing them, yet to date no pictures have been taken of them and none have been shot. But it could be true. Then there's the antique explanation of why pike and pickerel seem to pass up fishermen in mid-summer. •No doubt about it," and old tini'-r will say, "they are shedding their teeth and their mouths are sore." SPRAY JOB Will a skunk really be unable to spray the woodsman who picks him up by the tall and keeps the skunk's hind feet off the ground? Or can he? And another that refuses to stay dead is the story that wild animals, much like their go on prolonged "binge.';" fn .:i eating fermented fruit A lot people believe this. Actually, even if all these :i:e old wives' tales and miles froai the truth, isn't It n lot more interesting to sort of go alo::g and semi-believe? It's well and good to be a scoffer, but then- are a lot of people who find their lives are spiced by these and other "mysteries" of the wild. HARD TO SCARE Fishermen who worry about "scaring" the fish with the disturbance of their outboard motor could well take a page civilized brothers, frequently where his 22 -horse Mei have a taste for the grape and can improve the fishing from the book of a fisherman in southwest Iowa whose favorite lake was a mass of weeds. Fish, sure, lots of them, but so many weeds that pretty near everybody else stayed away from the little weedy gem. Not this boy. He would trailer out to the lake, launch his boat and crank up his Mercury outboard. Then he would whiz around in tight circles until the churning propeller had cleared a sizable spot, anchor and light his pipe, and in 15 minutes (time for the debris to settle) start catching fish. Then somebody saw him and the fat was in the fire. Now everybody's doing it and he's looking for more weedy lakes ' " ~ ~ 00 Creek Bottom Comments day by WE AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET Those The best way to solve community deveLop- »;< i.l problems is to get all kinds of local org an./at .i .ns '.corking together on a comprehensive, do-it-yourself program. That is the view of Arthur H. Motley, President of the Chamber of Comnnice i .f the United States. On the highly specific side, he said that legislation now pending in Congress "could kill chambers of commerce and other local voluntary organizations working for community development. . (and; could eliminate independent local government". That's quite a statement. But Mr. Motley has evidence to support it. More than 250 local subsidy bills are pending. They provide Federal aid for repairing streets, sidewalks, bridges, parking \:ts, recreation facilities, garbage disposal facilities, sewage and sanitation facilities, police and fire protection, and many other local matters. The thinking behind such pioposais can only be that the Federal government should do everything. If that is to be the case, local government along with civic groups might as well shut up shop and call it a day. Then, in the matter of Federal taxes, controls, and regimentation, it will be a case of "we ain't seen nothing yet". nounced to- Dr. Herschel Hendrix, dean of the University.

Our disappointment three weeks ago was born in a climate of doubt and fear, which I have always regretted as being out of place in America. If the USA is not first in any field or well on its way, it is only because we are not working on it, and our people were working on this. We can confidently anticipate more victories like this one. * • • • The omnibus farm program, which I said would come on before Fall, is under heavy discussion in the Agriculture Committee now. . . and will be for a time. Every farmer in the country should take a close look at this one, and talk it over carefully because it is a new proposition as far as Iowa, and Government are concerned. Two Federal agencies have offered assistance to our District in the wake of the tornado of April 23, and one other may do so. Small Business Administration help is available in Benton, Linn, Buchanan, Deleware and Jones Counties; Farmers Home Administration of the Department of Agriculture help is available throughout the District. The Office of Civil and Defense Mobilization is making a survey to determine whether to offer help to municipalities.

The main issue was not the amount of the minimum wage increase or even the extension of c&verage, but rather whether "dollar volume" should be the test of the government's right to set the minimum wage. The passage of the bill makes it possible, ultimately, for Washington to set the wage base in virtually every business. ***• The House this week paid tribute to General Stefanik, one automobile accident Sunday , ZsThdu.hT Z 17 night near Fort Dodge.
