PACK EIGHT. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE. IOWA Notes- " Bu, Bill We get sentimental along about this time of the year. Maybe it's because wo feel a little more closely to home and family, in that we give thought to making them a bit happier with gifts and the like. But whatever it is, there passes before us a long procession of people who have had "the spirit of Christmas", of giving, in their hearts during the year just closing and have shown this toward us. To all of them we are humbly and sincerely grateful. We sometimes Ihink there arc those who may feel we're "hard to get along with." quick to say "no" when we're asked to hurry a job through the mill when we're already loaded down with promised jobs. Or when we are only lukewarm to the suggestion that an apparent publicity story has no place in the news columns of this great family journal. Sometimes we find it difficult to get along with ourselves, so we hope we haven't offended anyone. . . . Yeah, we are grateful to a lot of people who have assisted us along the way There are the folks who are ready with news items or tip us off where we might pick them up. . . . Lee Bowers and Francis Hart .who jump at a moment's notice to get dead motors back into operation so we can keep the wheels rolling. . . . Hecker's. too. whose tools we borrow and xhen forget to return them until Eddie Frese comes over and smilingly asks if he can "borrow Hecker's micrometer gauge" or some other gadget of theirs we have here .... and the telephone operators who we pester more or less and fume because their "lines are still busy" when we are in a hurry to get a call through. . . . and Ralinda Lammert who calls us up five minutes before the deadline for paying power and light bills so we can get the discount on them .... the folks up at the bank who are so prompt to notify us when the . bank account is overdrawn even though we still have some blank checks that aren't used up . . . and the garagemen who hustle around to keep the old pre-war bus percolating and hurry to bring us a live battery when the old one gasps its last feeble put-put .... and above- all, to our advertisers whom we have to hound for copy in busy- weeks when it's doubtful if we'll be able to make the mails on time. . . . and our subscribers who charitably accept our offerings without too many brickbats hurled our way. . . . the co-workers here in the shop. Marie and Envin—they've been mighty fine through trying times to : get the work out without a gram- j ble. threat of a sitdown strike or] work stoppage .... and last but not: least, our family who have to put J up with us all the year 'round, in | all our moods; they've been pretty nice too. All of you have been a swell lot of people, and to each and all we say "thank you" and hope lhat everyone of you will have a swell Christmas in the circle of your family and friends. * * * * » And speaking of the friendliness cf the folks in the small town, isn't it true that folks in the big city are mere statistics? They are born, married, bear children, die xmder the listing of impersonal, unemotional "vital statistics." But in the small towns like we have here in Iowa every birth, wedding and passing is news to be written up and avidly read by friends and neighbors to whom each individual is a human being—not merely a statistic, noted and forgotten.

Officers for the coming year are to be elected, after which a Christmas program and party with 50c gift exchange will be held. Members arc asked to bring their own dishes for the supper. Birthday Observance. The following guests spent the evening in the Mr. and Mrs. Will Kugel home Wednesday, the occasion being Mr. Kugel's birthday anniversary: Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Seeland and Mrs. Arthur Seeland of Monona. Mr. and Mrs. Donald Kugel. Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Kugel and Ruth and Robert, Mr. and Mrs. Duane Kamp and Janice, Eddie and Jimmie. Mr. and Mrs. Duane Kamp and family were dinner guests Sunday in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Will Kugel and daughters. Mrs. Frank V. Blaha of Monona has been here the past week with her sister, Mrs. Delia Stone. Capitol News Letter (Continued from page 1) ward Breen of Fort Dodge was the speaker. Breen lambasted the Democrats for some of their faults and it didn't go over at all. In fact, Ralph Lynch, Des Moines, the Fifth district committeeman, removed himself from the room under protest. His wife took the walk with him. Thus, it's safe to say that this time the speech probably will be read before it is delivered. DEFICIT SPENDING. In its most . recent statement about the special session of the income tax, the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation served notice it will not lower its flag in the fight to retain the 100 percent rate for collection during 1948 on 1947 incomes. In fact, the bureau issued a statement saying that there is a possibility of deficit spending if the 100 percent rate is not retained. The bureau took the position that this was possible if the current tax collections are not sufficient to meet the total current appropria tions that already have been made for the 1947-49 biennium. As the situation is now. there is little chance that not enough will "Mother says. 'Snooky, drink plenty of Waters'' Pasteurized Milk if you want to sleep well at night and fell good in the morning.'

The Iowa Taxpayers Association, as the session opened, was stilt emphatic in its view thai Hie SO percent rate would bring in sufficient revenues during the next two years to more than offset state expenditures. In fact, the ITA released a recent statement that enough money is being held in city, county, school district and state treasuries to provide an average nest egg of approximately S300 for every Iowa family. The ITA reported that as of Dee. 31, 1945 there was a total balance of 552,920,298 in county treasuries; as of March 31, 1940 there was a total balance of $13,332,975 in city treasuries; as of June 30. 1945 there was a total balance of $22,602,111 in 1 school district treasuries and that is of last June 30 there was a total WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER H j in cash and bonds of $98,j state treasury, A CAR OF . . .
