L. Huskamp truck- er, showed his business training In his first utterances: "The cost of government," he said, "has steadily mourited since the pro-war period.' Then to ? the legislature, he said "You have the power to curtail ex pendltures. It is your stern duty to exercise it." Discusses Income Tuxes. Having made his campaign on th Issue of tax. revision, Governor Tur ner launched upon a brief but con else discussion of the income tax proposal with the declaration that "provision for a state income tax 'should- 'tie. written nto the laws oC Iowa." • As if to quiet fears of some Jf his listeners, he added. "It must be a replacement tax." With .just praise of the work oC :he special legislative committee on taxation 'and of the state board of assessment and review, Turner took Issue In one respect with the income proposal: "The Jaw written," h e said, "should exempt wages and earnings needed to provide families with'- necessities and to enable them to educate children and to live to some degree of comfort. Rates ought to be high enough in the upper brackets to permit citizens of .substantial incomes ito contribute their share toward t-he cost of government." Turner Would Tax Corporations. , ' The Income, tax proposed by the tax bodies sets rates of one , to five percent. It does not exempt Incomes <from taxation for dependents, but fixes a rate in money for deduction tronv the "gross tax for dependents. Turner's idea more nea:-ly approaches the pla.n of the federal government. manufacturing Industry In Iowa, current economic and social dls tress attendant on unemployment and low prices of agricultural products, the advantages of using Iowa products and Iowa coal, law enforcement, prohibition, the practice of lobbying by selfish interests, chain stores, and chain banks, all were Included In the subject matter of •the Inaugural address, and In the discussion the new governor outlined the heaviest load of Issues that any General Assembly has been confronted with In the history of th e state.
