The Leader is published weekly in if'ayette. Iowa, and distributed on Thursday morning. Entered at the Post Office at Fayette, Iowd as second class matter, under the Act of March 3, 1879. Maurice Sioneman, Owner and Publisher Editorial Comments Worthy of Skylock The latest on revision of the crazy quilt federal income tax system is a plan now before Congress to enable the government to get more of its taxes from a citizen's earnings before he receives them. It would withhold 20 cents of evey dollar of intlividentls. interest earned on savings accounts in banks, savings and loans associations, etc. If more taxes are withheld than owed, the taxpayer could apply to the treasury for a refund. There are already withholding taxes on wages and salaries. A depressing aspect of the bill is the hick of con­ fidence shown by the government in the honesty of its citizens-it treats them all as dishonest in order to catch the few who are. Tax revision can go one step farther-rc(|iire that all salaries, wages and earnings !>e paid to the government, and then have the government return to each individual or company whatever might be left after the tax gathers had done their work. Sounds crazy, but that would make' it easier to deal with a nation of crooks. Chattin* With Stoney Who said "there's no eooperat ion"?

Free pancakes, sausage and all the t immings, and the Kay tie merchants waiting to greet you and serve you - what more do ymt want? And we don't mean only greet and serve you in their plates of business. Many will be greeting you at the Farm Bureau building and serving you pancakes. That shows that the merchants are in tercsted in you as a friend as well as a customer. Crop insurance Deadline extended II. S. I). A. Federal Crop Insurance officials have now set the closing date of May 18 for accepting applications under its 19G2 insurance program offereu on corn and soybeans, reports Justin C. Dee, Iowa State Director. The acceptance of applications may be stopped earlier if the state direettv determines that there is a highly hazardous condition developing in any county. The extension will enable those fanners who have not yet made application to do so. The improved program for 19fi2 has increased the statewide participation, with some countries showing as high as a KX) per cent increase in the number of crops insured.

SELL YOUR DON'T WANTS WITH LEADER WANT ADS Homemakers Dateline by What's in a noodle? Noodles are made from the same basic ingredients as macaroni and spaghetti. However, in addition, noodle products are required by law to contain a minimum of 5.5% egg solids. Egg solids may be added in fresh, powered or frozen form. Only the yolk is used because the whites tend to make noodles tough. That's what's in a noodle! D-E-B Conventional ways of drying foods have been greatly improved in recent years. Today we have dried fruits with more of a fresh fruit taste. Watch for new dried cherries with fresh-off-the-tree flavor. They will be good in candy, fruitcakes and cookies. D-E-B To many farm women, a permanent outdoor clothline is still a must. To prevent breaking up the lawn area, it is best to locate the clothesline parallel and close to a boundary fence. It is important to locate it near where clothes are washed, where there is good sun, good air circulation and where it will be away from as much as Dorothye E. Busching Fayette County HOME ECONOMIST possible from the drive and road. Nothing quite compares with the fresh clean aroma of clothes just in off the line. D-E-B The kitchen can be the most dangerous room in your house, for it is there that one-third of all household accidents occur. For greater safety keep a first aid kit handy in tbe„kitcen^Alvjays use pot holders when ha'ndling-sjiot equipment, keep pot handles turned inward in the range, keep electrical appliances out of children's reach and away from the sink and always use non-flamable cleaning fluids in the kitchen. Make your family safety conscious. D-E-B Who would have dreamed just 20 yeacs ago of all the different food products now available in our supermarkets? Then we could choose our family's food from among 1,000 different items. But today, we have at our fingertips more than 8,000 items, done up in neat packages and often ready for the table a brief turn in either hot water or a hot oven. In 10 years, 12,000 items will line our grocer's shelves, half of them different from the foods sold today! What a changing world we are living in! D-E-B CALLING all "do it yourselfers"! Particleboard is probably the closest thing yet to a really fool proof material for do-it yourselfers. This new material will be coming to Iowa markets in the near future. It's made of wood flakes, mashed together with heat, pressure and resins to produce a uniform, solid panel. It can be nailed, glued or screwed into place and particle- board will be available in thick nesses varying from 1 , to I - OA inches. Keep watching for it! D-E-B Once used by the Greeks as a symbol of victory to crown the heroes of their Olympic games, the bay or laurel leaf is today more frequently used to put the crowning touch on a covory soup or meat stew. Simmer a bay leaf with any kind of stew or with budget cuts like beef tongue, corned beef, lamb shanks or kidneys. You'll be in for a new flavor treat your family will enjoy. D-E-B Did you know that upright freezers outsell chest types in most '•are?a> ex^pt rural, where the large capacity jchest models are still popular? Automatic defrosting is being ' built into more refrigerators and freezers all the time. Manufacturers emphasize that automatic defrosting does not eliminate the need for cleaning refrigerators or freezers I Creek Bottom Comments Today we shall let "Savings Bonds", taxes, and politics rest, and gently touch on some "light or" subjects. A few weeks ago we read an amusing article entitled. "Who rests in a rest room? "The writer pointed out the silly nicety- nice American mania for calling .So many things by some "nicer" name. Public toilets are rest rooms or powder rooms. There are no janitors anymore. They have all become custodians. The hod carriers are bricklayer's assistants. The garage grease-monkey is of course a lubrication expert. And prostitute with a telephone is a call-girl. The names that some supper clubs have on the doors of the men's room and the women's room are not only amusing, but sometimes confusing. Some time ago Walter Winchell told a little story we think worth repeating. A wealthy batehelor Texas cattleman was doing-the-town at New York City. He met a lovely model and TV actress, courted her in a most royal manner. On returning to Texas, he especially invited her to stop off at an airport or railway station near his ranch, if she was ever going thru Texas. Sure enough the lovely„gal got jin assignment in TV ^OieYleal^a^^a^isaiido the stop-over in Texas. The cattle- — By Reuben man took her to dinner at the finest supper club in the cattle country. They took the little table- fir two he had thoughtfully reserved. After giving her order for her favorite dinner, the lovely girl asked to be excused, and walked so very gracefully on her very high heels to the back of the supper club. She looked at the names on the two doors, and then came back to the table-for-two. With a perplexed look on her pretty face, she said, I find that a big city girls needs a little help. Am I a "heifer" or a "steer"? ? ? And now a few words of wisdom to you prospective June brides and bridegrooms. If a man thinks for one minute that he can understand a woman. . . he has it timed about right. - - Statistics show that more women are taking up law. This is as it should be . . . they have been laying it down, at home, for .years. - - A wedding ring is not as tight a, tourniquet, but it usually stops circulation. - - Any man that doesn't know his own strength ... is likely still single. - - It takes some brides longer than some others to become accustomed to being whistled for instead of whistled at. r ,T-~- - VOTE FOR JOHN FAY County Supervisor Term Beginning Jan. 1964 HARPER'S Plumbing & Heating Air Conditioning — Ventilation — Sheet Metal Gutter and Spouting — Pumps Open House SATURDAY, MAY 19 10 A.
