AUttfeof •CMjrtklag H ERB'S A PROBLEM In inetic—or mayhap we arlth- should figure it in the higher mathematical spheres. Robert Miller, a farmer living three miles north of Marshalltown, this year seeded 20 acres of his farm to oats. The seed cost him 35c per bushel, $28; he paid $20 for having the ground prepared last spring; he dug up $3 for the seed- Ing; he expended $3 for harrowing it; he dealt out $20 for having the crop harvested; he let loose of $8 for twine; and he donated $28 for having it threshed; he also figured that it cost him $10 to feed the threshing crew. NOW THE FIGURING you are to do Is to add up all of these costs and ascertain just what the sum total was that he paid out for the privilege of growing and harvesting these 20 acres of oats. After you have accomplished that deduct the expenditures from his receipts. He got -100 bushels from the piece. The oats weighed out at IS pounds to the bushel. He disposed of them for 13c per bushel, giving him a gross total of $52.00 for the 400 bushels, o—o T HEBE YOU AKE. Easy Isn't It to figure out how much money Mr. Miller was able to put in the bank as a result of his oat crop. All you have to do Is subtract 9130 from «S2. Mr. Miller th«t bec*n«e he couldn't flfnre tight he lost money on that 90 «ere» this year, arid hence ho will drive the old Jitney another year* will hare to forego the pleasure of a vacation, will have to cnt his tit ho to the church In half, will plod along In his old boots and will confine his Christmas giving to Christmas cards. And .Inst think of It, folks, that's the boat all of our farmers are sailing In this year. No such smooth sailing, Is It? SOME PBOFESSOU has figured out that millions of years ago Iowa was sunk In an ocean and the life therein consisted chiefly of worms. He didn't state what, sort of worms. It took millions of years, he says, for Iowa to dry up and become the finest state In the union. I know that guy Is right In two In* stances: Iowa Is still plenty wet and' we harbor quite a number , of (human) worms within our borders to this day. Iowa Is bootlcgedly damp (and you know It) and we have the. worms who tank up and drive a car, the worms who hold a girl In one arm and drive the highways at SO miles per hour, the worms who hog the highway, and the worms — but what's the use, Iowa has a mess of worms still taking up the space of men. ALL OP THE 9D counties In the state have 'been supplied with number plates for next year's car registration, according to Mr. Stevens, superintendent of the motor vehicle department, 'Tis nice of Mr. Stevens to tell us so that we may begin to scratch the nickels to pay for our 1932 license plate. I really ought to have a little more time. o — o W E ARE TOLD that_the cost per plate this year was 4.25 cents. Last year ft was 4.4 per plate. Rather looks to rne like this ought to be investigated. Perhaps maroon paint comes higher than white paint. But here we are In the throes of a tax •eductldn campaign and then the state squanders money In Its plate manufacture. It.Is Yioftrf'record that .he men at the Anamosa, reforma- :dry ment on strike for more money, or that Increased pay was given :hem. So the Increased cost can't >e charged to labor troubles. PAGE MR. MARSHALL, of the Cedar Rapids Gazette. Here's the opening wedge for another Investigation. Mr. Marshall should marshal his Investigators and show me why I have to pay $28 for a plate that cost the state only 4.25 cents and freight to •Marslwlltown. And on top of that I have to visit the county treasurer, lug my money to his office, sign away my. rights as an American Citizen, almost, before I get the plate, and then have to put the.plates on the car myself. Just looks to me like the state, getting $27.90 for two . plates could afford to put 'em on the car. That's making good money. o—o [ OWA'S CHAMPION health girl last year was Miss Syndergaard, of Grundy county, and this year it Is Miss Torkelson, of Story county. Which indicates that we Scandl- hoovlans are a pretty healthy outfit. With Norwegian blood In the veins of the Torkelsons and Danish blood In the Syndergaard veins, It just had to be that the girls would win. Perhaps some day the Danish blood In my veins will get me somewhere, too. We Scandlhoovlans get places —some times—some of us. I ADMIT this column isn't worth much—nor does your editor pay much for It. But I am satisfied If he Is and If you are. It's not my Intention to raise the ante, but would like, to know how the reader; survive the junk I'm cramming down their guzzles. And I'd like to know If you hold It against your editor. o—o • MESS OP BUNK has been printed weekly In this paper now, Id these many months. And 1 ant interested to know If many oi 1 few read it. I'm almost willing to pay your editor tor printing it—I'm ,hat stuck oh myself, and like to see my name in print So, will you mail me a post card, prepaid please, and say "Yes" thereon. That means you mven't suffered any 111 effects. If the slush nauseates you just put on the card "No." Then sign your name and address. What d'ye say? Will you do this for me? Address your card to C. H. Reese, Marshalltown, [owa, I'll get your card, for the postmaster knows . I'm the only iiorse-steallng democrat in town And that's that.
