ALGONA, IOWA, FEBRUARY 26, 1931 Number 24 43 2BO 10 What Aye We Going to Do About It? GOODS SENT TO OKLAHOMANS BY LONE ROCKERS Lone Rock, Feb. 24 — This community shipped a large amount of clothing -and foodstuffs to the 433 »329 Action on Senate Bills: Passed both ' Houses and . approved by Governor _ 10 7 'assed bdth '-Houses but not reported approved 18 3 lent to Secretary of State. 0 1 Passed Senate only 75 22 'assed Senate, amended by House o 1 ntroduced but not acted upon ...272 19S Vithdrawn by author 29 4 Failed to pass or indefinitely postponed . 26 1 By this you can see'that we are not making as much progress in the lame period of time as did the 43rd Jeneral Assembly. Too much ora- ory in the -House. Up to the pres- mt I have myself indulged in little of this kind of grandstanding. On several occasions, however, I was all tvound up to air my views, but other members gained recognition. In Committee, however, I usually manage to fight for what I believe .to be desired legislation. Mileage Bill Criticised. I must confess that some criticisms I received during the last veek have slightly irritated me. Of course any public servant is subject ,o censoring, and I have served long enough on our school board at home .o'acclimate my system to criticism; but when attempts are made to discover motives other than those that actuated me In introducing a certain bl)l in the House I feel that it is only fair to state my reasons for so doing.- Yes, I .was one of the authors of the 6c 'mileage bill, for county officers, and I will admit further that I wad its chief engineer. The other joys were planning to introduce a similar bill eo we got together, and ;he result was House File No. 250. The f measure vis unpopular with members more Interested in build- ng political castles for themselves than' in getting 'relief for taxpayers. '/,' Salary Boosts Opposed. For the benefit of any who may still be in. doubt as to my attitude ;owards increased salaries and other ncreaeed public-; expenditure, let me say-.right here that I will not know- ngly support any proposed, law at this time which will increase taxes. On the'other hand I shall support every bill that in my judgment :ends to'reduce them. My reasons follow: ' Almost all of Iowa's wealth consists of agricultural products. When ihese products cannot command coe.t-crt-production ""prices, why should we Increase salaries of public/servants?- Nor is that all: what can any thinking man see in the immediate f ifture. (and'by this Jf mean'the next fjye. or ten years) of agriculture Our foreign .markets,have been killed, thanks to the republican tariff; our southern neighbors are curtailing cotton production and are preparing to grow corn and raise hogs In competition with the farmers of the midwest, thanks to the Farm Board; Russia and many other European countries are expanding the production of agricultural products; modern machinery Is playing a great part in putting more foodstuffs on the market, and restricted immigration, along with birth control, is responsible for lower consumption of agricultural commodities. Lower Costs Imperative. I am not a pessimist, but at this time I cannot see a single encouraging factor to contribute to a higher price level on farm products. iYhat then is the solution for this :rylng condition? There is but one answer, and that s, lower salaries, fees, and wages, ind cheaper manufactured goods. As soon as people become reconciled to tnls solution the condition will gradually adjust itself and we shall again enjoy an economic balance in :he various lines of human endeavor. Living Costs Descending. I might say here that a noticeable change along this line has taken place In the last year, in connection with the manufacturing of shoes and clothing. It had been some time since we had enjoyed such reasonable prices on these articles as now prevail. The same thing will be true with other commodities and services In a short time, because there la at present too wide a spread b tween the value of agricultural products and the other necessities of life. . As the cost of living decreases the Buying power per dollar increases. Hence it costs less to exist, and therefore reductions in . salaries rather than increases should be in order. But don't blame anyone else for this philosophy: It is my own, and It may-be of the soap-box variety, nevertheless I propose to stick to it. •.•.-'.-. Theater Taxes Opposed. There is another matter I wish to discuss. It deals with the proposed tobacco and amusement taxes. I am not a user of tobacco, neither do I attend the movies frequently, but I cannot help feeling that • taxes of this nature are usually paid by the rank and file of citizens who are already paying their share towards maintaining the government. We have at present many rural Now/ *2caMile COACH FARE A Reduction of Nearly 1/2 • bttvtt* PI?

Business in towns which lose these places of amusement will suffer materially. "Movies" in rural towns are 1 great assets towards keeping business at home, and no man who really has the welfare Of his own'little community at heart can with much enthusiasm support measures to tax them. Regarding the proposed, state constabulary, I am willing to support such a program providing the expenses are borne out of the primary road fund; otherwise I am opposed. A newspaper could be filled on the House proceedings every day. The members appear to be busy. Enough for this time. MEMBERSHIP WINS CITATION FOR LEGION 'AUX 1 AT WESLEY Wesley, Feb. 24—The Legion.
