Minstrel Show and Dance ACADEMY HAIL, TTHITTEMOBE Tuesday, April 14 Attend the minstrel show and remain for the dance. Music will be furnished by Al Menke and His Gang An evening of real entertainment mile to 2.57c mile, depending on size of cm-, license, Interest at 6 per cent, Insurance, and $•! n. month storage. It will be seen that every conceivable item of expense Is included. Inasniudi ns thi.s tabulation ivas prepared before good roads, and since that time gasoline, tires, and other costs liave come down, these costs arc higher, than the present .Actual costs. While It la true that the operating costs for heavy and medium six-cylinder car run over Tc according to this tabulation, yet It i.s clear that there Is no public bunlnosH except police emergency work which makes necessary the use of large, expensive cars. Corporation Example's Cilcdt We have numerous instances of actual expense of operating motor vehicles by Iowa corporations as follows. The Deckev Packing company, Mason City, reports that its salesmen own and operate their own cars at an expense to the owners as follows: . Ford, 4 5/Sc a- mile Chevrolet, 4 7/Sc; Pontiac, o 1/Sc. Employes of the Hesquakle Mills are allowed only 5c. The International Harvester Co., the .Tohn Deere Plow Co., and War- fleld-Pratt-Howell allow Gc a mile. Hundreds of similar instances could be given. May lie 1'roflt Still. If employes of Iowa corporations are allowed only 4 to fie for the use of their cars on employer's business, and If they do not sustain a loss thereby, is it reasonable that counties and other taxing subdivisions should pay twice as much, or lOc a mile? Apparently there might even be some profit to the individual on a 7c allowance as proposed by this law. I might also call attention to some of the mileage reported by various state departments which own their own cars. The Department of Agriculture average mile cost for Dodges and Fords is .032c, which includes depreciation and storage. The state treasurer's department shows similar figures, and the state highway commission reports Essex expense at 4.1c and 5.4c, which includes everything but license, insurance, and Interest on investment. What Would bo Saved. What would be the average yearly saving from reducing the present mileage allowance? The mileage annual expense for county boards of supervisors in this state for 1929 was $238,000. This was only $198,000 in 1026, and it has Increased about' $40,000 over 192C, which indicates that it >ls high time that this mileage 'proposition was checked. A 30 per cent reduction from lOc to 7c a mile would mean a saving of about $71,000 a year in supervisors' expense alone in the state. The mileage for county sheriffs Is $140,000. If the sheriffs are included in this mileage reduction, there would be an annual saving of about $40,000. The average annual traveling expense of county superintendents of schools Is $33,000 a year, and a 30 per cent reduction would aggregate a saving of about $10,000 a year. County Engineers Mentioned. The automobile expense of all county engineers amounted to $83,000 in 1929. Some of this transportation expense is not on the mileage basis, because in some counties one or more of the engineer's cars are owned by the county; but most of it is on the lOc basis. Assuming that two-thirds of this $83,000 auto expense in 192!) was based on mileage, a 30 per cent saving- would amount to about $10,000. There is little transportation .paid by mileage In the state department, as most departments own and operate their own cars. However, out of a S15.000 mileage allowance for district judges there would be a saving of about $4,500. records are available as to the mileage paid at the lOc rate to city, officials, but it doubtless amounts to a large sum. I believe it is clear from the foregoing that here is a chance to effect a renl economy that will not hurt anyone. The legislators were all elected on a platform of economy and proclaimed their support of such policy. Here is a specific way by which a certain economy may be obtained. -*• KnoxvilIe Newspaper Gives * Ex-lrvingtonian's Obituary FORMER LEDYARD SCHOOLS HEAD GIVEN COLLEGE JOB Ledyurd, Apr. 1 — Friends here have been interested to learn that S. C. Earl Powers, former Ledyard schools superintendent, has been elected heart of the political science department of the Henderson state teachers' college at Arkacielphia, Ark. He had previously held a graduate assistant position in political .science at the state university of Iowa, and is to receive his doctor's degree at the close of this year's summer session. Ijixst week's Knoxville Journa published the following obituary ol the late J. M. Watson, who foi many years conducted a store at Trvlng'.cn: John Marshall Watson, youngest child of ,T. M. and Mary Watson was born July 23, 1859, at Athens Mo., and entered into rest at his late home In Knoxvllle, March 'I'A 1031. At the age of 1 lie wns left on orphan by the death of his mother Ho the,-, went to make his home with .in uncle, M. C. Van Camp Keokuk. When 1G years of age he entered the employ of a wholesale grocery firm. On October 0, 1883 he was married to Mary EIlK.ibotii B.jley at Wayland, Mo. Three sons were born. Tjlrvd Many Years nt Kookiik. The couple began housekeeping at Keokuk and resided there foui years. They then moved to Bllins- burg, Wash., wher e Mr. Watson was employed by the Northern Pacific railroad. After two and a half years there they returned to Keokuk where they lived 20 years and Mr Watson was employed as engineer, In ilflio they moved to Irvington, where the deceased engaged in the mercantile business and was foi -seven years postmaster. Since 1929 they had made their home in Knoxville. Mr. Watson was a member of the Odd Fellows and the Modern .Woodmen. At about 20 years he was converted and united with the Metnocilst church at Keokuk. Later he 'transferred his membership to the Presbyterian church, Irvington, and at the time of his home-going was a member of the Presbyterian church at Knoxville. In his younger days he was greatly interested in Sunday school work and was many years a Sunday school officer. Leaves Widow, Three Sons. Surviving are his , widow, Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Watson; three sons: Harry Lee, Leavenworth, Kans.; Raymond Maurice, San Francisco; and Mai-shall Chester, Knoxville. One brother, Lee Watson, Keokuk, and six grandchildren also survive. A brief service was held at the home Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 by the Rev. O. L. Can-, pastor of the Presbyterian church. The body was taken to Keokuk for a service Friday and burial was made in a Keokuk cemetery. 10THOTCT IS OPLNGED BY NEW PLAN By Byron G. Allen. The Senate Tuesday adopted the House bill, 3G-S, and it will presumably be approved by Governor Turner, whereupon it will become law. This leaves the Tenth district unchanged, which is understood to be in accordance with the desire of Congressman Gilchrist. Senator Patterson voted for the bill. The sifting committee in the Senate at Des Moines has introduced a state senatorial redistricting bill in which Kossuth, Emmet, and Palo Alto are grouped together in a district. This is one of the groupings suggested in a recent Advance editorial. The bill would remove Dickinson and Clay counties from the present 47th district. -*• Adam Mntern Injured. Wesley, Apr. 7—Adam Matern, engaged in road construction work at Swea City, suffered an accident in which one toe was broken, and several others crushed. He dropped a piece of heavy iron casting on them. He has come home for an enforced vacation at the home of his mother. -*• New Lu Verne Postmaster. Lu Verne, Apr. 7 — Harry Lichty is a new clerk at the Corner store, in place of Harold Phillips, who becomes postmaster this week Tuesday. Leona Ramus has been appointed assistant. Miss Riynus has had six years experience In post- office work. Mail Contract Let. Burt, Apr. 7 _ Notice has been received from the Post Office Department that the bid of Delbert C and Wm. H. Vogel for the star route from Burt to Bancroft has been accepted. Mr. Vogel will begin his service July il<, and the contract Is for a. 4-year period. Statehouse, Des Moines, Apr. 7— The adjournment fever Is strong now, even though but one major, measure has been finally acted upon by the 44th General Assembly. The House and Senate found 'it necessary to appoint a conference committee In an effort to iron out differences on the Income tax bill. On this committee's work, which may take considerable time, hinges the session's tangible work on tax revision. Though the House has repeatedly shown a disposition to reject the county assessor plan, loaders of the Turner forces are still hopeful that they will not lose strength in the Senate below the 20 votes required to pass a bill or accept a conference report. If the Senate acts favorably, then we shall at least have the income tax principle on the statute books, oven if the law does not meet all the hopes of its sponsors. House Adopts limllstrlctlng Plan. Interest was centered in the House last week on the Tamisiea- Anderson bill to redistrict the state for the election of nine congressmen instead of 11. Under this bill, sitting- congressmen in two districts will be pitted against each other, but the Big Tenth and the Eleventh are not changed. Representative Hugh Tumisiea, of Harrison, author of the bill, placed Congressman Thurston and Ramseyer in a new Fifth district and Congressman Cole and Jacobsem (democrat) in a new Second district. The 3S House democrats made a valiant fight, under the leadership of Whiting, of Johnson, against the bill, aligning themselves with disgruntled republicans in an effort to give eastern and south-central Iowa more nearly what they wanted and improving the democratic chances in three districts. lllg Tenth Is Unchanged. For a. time the vote stood 54 to 53 for the Tamisiea bill, one vote short of the necessary 55; but when the committee of the whole dissolved to take final action strength shifted by reason of the bolting of democratic members, and the bill passed, 60-48. The new 6th, 8th, and 9th districts are the same as the old 7th, 10th, and llth, now represented by Congressman Dowell, Gilchrlet, and (Campbell. 10 PHOTOS 10< At the popular priced studio located over Open Evenings, STEELE'S STOBE SENECA CLASS TO GIVE PL AY TWO EVENINGS • Seneca, Apr. 7 — The senior c'><uss piny, Welcome Home, Jimmy, will bo given this week Thursday and Friday nights.
