We disapprove of the general «le» tax now proposed by the irWwUm^ democrats , In • congreM. sales taxes bear most heavily apon,the consumer* of the conn- <tej«rr«^*rt''^heaviest on those least able to pay. t t. With the farmer selling his produce for what.he can get and buying In • protected market, a sales tax would lodge on him In both Instances. Conditions are Mmtttedly bad, but democratic control In this Instance would be Infinitely worse. •S. The major effect of all previous depressions following wars has been to transfer the wealth from the many to the favored few. The proper remedy for thin economic Injustice Is to transfer wealth back by means of heavy estate and Income taxes. 4. We call attention to the tact, that estate taxes In this country have never been sufficiently high In raleii to prevent In the least that socially dangerous accninnla* tlon of the nation's wealth In the hands of a few people. 5. If congress Is unable to bal•rice Us-budget by substantial Increases In estate and'Income tax rates, we prefer that congress borrow the money rather than enact a sales tax. «. We suggest that In order more easily to balance the budget congress discontinue the building of costly and obsolete battleships. 7. We heartily commend President Hoover for his efforts to reduce wasteful war appropriations _ radically. 8. We commend' Governor Duii W. Turner for persistent and effective labors to effect economies In government. We endorse his stand that'we must not only have economy . In public expenditure but more justice In • the collection of public revenue. ; - -,' i •' 9. We reaffirm our position for a net Income tax for state use to replace some of the burdensome levies on property. • 10. We especially commend the state reduction of expenditures committee and the many county- committees which have unselfishly labored to assist. Much of the credit for the constructive work of these, committees Is due our own Senator George W. Patter* son, who sponsored and handled In the senate the measure creating this tax reduction committee. II. We commend the work of Senator L. J. Dickinson, Algona, and Congressman F. C. Gllchrlst, Lauren*. POINT-A-MINUTE TEAM DEVELOPED BY SENEGA GIRLS Seneca, March 15.—Seneca won the sectional tournament Friday and Saturday , at Ringsted. Supt.

L, Cotton, chairman of the. recent Lone Rock-Lotts Creek drive to collect a carload of grain for shipment to Bonesteel, S. ,Dak., has received a letter from J. F. Edelstein, expert In "experimental blology-ithremmatol- ogy" stationed at Bonesteel, acknowledging the shiptnent. Algona contributed $172.27 in cash for the purchase of grain included in the shipment, and "Mr. Edelstein's letter which follows, was addressed'to the Lone Rock-Lotts Creek and Algona committees: I am happy to advise you that the load of corn and oats donated to the Red Cross by the people of your community and shipped from Lone .Ro.ck arrived at Bonesteel and was distributed this week. I am taking the liberty'on behalf of our people to thank you all who were instrumental in getting up this load of good grain for this community. I wish that all of you. could fee the swell of gratitude that bounds from the soiils of those whom you have befriended In their hpurs 01 destitution. Gives Life Stories. Perhaps it would be interesting for you all to know more about the people for whom you have done this beautiful act of charity and more of their present conditions from one who has lived among them for a quarter century, and who>.knows the details of their individual • arid collective life ; stories—the problems they have met and mastered as well as their present status. •From such facts you will be better able to realize their deeply felt appreciation and the fuller meaning of a kindness auch as you have rendered them. That being the super- purpose of this letter, I trust you wll pardon me should it seem in any sense'burdened with details. People Are Not Paupers. I sincerely ask you not to think ol our people who ask for or receive food for their livestock as paupers; that is to say, "born children of Indolence and poverty." They are far from such. •Like all pioneers, they are ambitious, industrious, progressive, frugal, and eternally hopeful. Possessed of a high sense of Independence and pride, they feel deeply the humiliation that goes with a request for or the acceptance of charity! The4r present plight is not the result ol their errors, but the consequence ol continued adversities, many of which you too have experienced, but climaxed by the almost total, failure of their last two crops. Just a few years ago these men were "master farmers" In a prosperous country, their barns and cribs bulging with the fruit of their harvests. They .saw, a farther -hope In all they beheld. Today they are happy and as grateful'as children at Christmas time, when they can drive away from the station with a few bushels of grain or bales of hay for the nucleous of their once ample herds and flocks. Each "dole" carries them a little, nearer their determined goal. Last fall, knowing they could not hold their entire herds and flocks, they sold them to a mere working possibility. As you know, owing to low prices, the proceeds of their sales were meager, but with these little assets and the little feed, they had they hoped to save the fragments of their industry. But their own feed was of little value, the price of additional feed high, and the winter most severe, . No Borrowing Power, Today their savings are gone and their borrowing power exhausted. Their horses, cattle, hogs, sheep and poultry are poor, many on the verge of starvation, and some already starved to death! ' „ Their last hope is to save enough, if they/ can, so that they may go on again in the coming season and with their loved ones some day again take their place among the nation's independent and self-sustaining cltizen- ry _a, position which is. their birthright, and, we believe, their due compensation for their commendable efforts. They are living in a night of darkness, and in such charity as yours is their'only hope for a fair tomorrow. Shall their hopes and dreams come true! The Red Cross Is ever Just in Us divisional proportioning according to acute and immediate needs, but the load is heavy, and -whether these unfortunate people will be able to reach the shore of their destination, wb,lch is still two months or more away, will depend upon the spirit your community has shown being taken up by others and the work carried on , No other hope attends US1 • - • ' * When our country again blooms with ita harvests, as jit surely will with continued help such a* yptt have given m and with its present as&ureg moisture, it wJM reflet tfee splendor id neighborly brotherhood: suje y«» tfe*t tf,** 6 w wiJJ - &aW r,flS?u$|' 5Jfc «?

GUDERIAN Algonians were shocked Monday morning to learn that L. H. Guderian, of the- Smoke Shop, had died at the Kossuth hospital the night .before at 9 o'clock. Late In February he suffered a severe attack of ulcer of the stomach, with which he had for some years been afflicted and it was neqessary to perform an operation immediately. -For a few days he seemed to be'-dOlng weHJ 16ut later he failed, and he died in coma. Funeral services were conducted yesterday afternoon at the Presbyterian church by the Rev. A. English, and burial with Masonic rites was made in Riverview cemetery. The pallbearers were Masons. Mr. Guderian'e given names were Louis Herman, and he was One of six brothers, sons of Mrs. Lizzie Gu- derlan,-who lives east of the Northwestern^'tracks. The father, Charles G. Guderlan, died in 1892, and the eldest son, WIHiam-J., in 1916. An infant son named after the father died in Infancy. The living brothers are O. P., of Cobb, Wis.; R. H., Ad r vance linotypist; E. A., v also of Algona: and John, publisher of the Kanawha Reporter; The father was a farmer, and the family came to Kossuth 42 years ago, moving to Algona 40 years ago. Two of the sons, L. H. and R. H;, never married and have for many • years lived with their mother. Some years ago the two brothers built the-modern home In which they resided. Mrs'. Guderian is now aged and feeble, but is otherwise In fair health. L. H., commonly known among friends ats "Lou," reached his'47th birthday anniversary about the time his last sickness began, having-been born February 25, 1885, at Battle Creek, Neb. Algona was .his home from early childhood. He became a clgarmaker,-and some, years ago with \IohirBleser, formed a partner- sjiip to conduct a local cigar factory, They prospered and later added smokers' goods and other lines, conducting the business under the name of the Smoke Shop. Their cigar brands became well known and have for many years been popular with smokers here and elsewhere, Mr. Guderlan had since youth been a member • of the Algona Military band and for some years before his death was manoger of the band. He was a member of the local Masonic lodge and also of the Kiwanis club, AL60NI AN SEES* LINDBERGH CHILD IN DREAM; WRITES A. Vanderlinden, who formerly lived in New Jersey, near where Col. Charles A. Lindbergh built his home, had a vision in a dream last weekend of a house In the, vicinity of Hopewell, }n which he caw the Lindbergh baby held captive by the kidnapers. On waking next morning, he wrote his dream down, describing In detail the house and its approximate location, and sent the letter by air mail to Colonel Lindbergh. The sheriffs' office received a poster Tuesday describing the Lindbergh baby as follows: Age, 20 months; weight, 2.7 to 90 pounds; height, 29 inches; hair, blond and cu.rly; eyes,'blue; complexion, light; deep dimple in center of chin; dressed In a one piece coverall sleeping garment. ^ , , Modification Denied, Congressman Qilchrist voted with the majority in the house at Washington Monday on a, proposal to con- eider modification, of the eighteenth amendment.

' In doubtless the hottest school election In the. history of Algona, T. P. Harrington, member of the board for 28 years and president for the last five years, and G. S. Buchanan, member during the last few years, were defeated by G. D. Shumway, county attorney, and Dr. W. D. Andrews. There were 1087 ballots, and the official count was: Andrews 626 Buchanan 357 Harrington _ 465 Shumway 1 682 Scattering votes were cast for C. R. 'LaBarre, Dr. R, M. Wallace, and John Haggard. Issues of the campaign we're not well defined, and minor questions of policy are believed to have determined the result. There has been some.,discussion, of a kindergarten fOr"young -children, eome idlssatisr faction with teachers, and perhaps a feeling that younger people should control. General regret has been expressed in some quarters over the fact that Mr. Harrington, who has' served so long, w«fe not re-elected. None of this, however, has been disparaging to winning candidates, who It is believed will carry on with the same high standards. During the election battle advocates of the retention of the old board called attention to the enormous amount of, work done by all five members' without consideration of any kind. It-, was estimated • oh ••the street- v 'ttiat it would? have cost the district $10,000 to buy the legal services of Mr. Harrington, the engineering service rendered by A. E. Michel, and the bonding and monetary advice of Mr. Buchanan. Mr. Buchanan has been :one of the board's, most hard-working and conscientious members. . . Doctor Andrews is a graduate of theslocal. schools and ,he .received his whole pre-collegiate education' here. ALGONIANS LOSE TO MASON CITY IN DISTRICT TOURNEY Mason City defeated the Algona high schoof basketball team, 39-26, in a fast game at'Mason City in the first.round of a' district tournament last Thursday evening. The Mason Cityans pierced the Algona zone- type defense badly in the first and final quarters, but the locals held their own In the second and third quarters. . Mason City got a 7-3 score In the first quarter, and ran It up to 16-3 earjy in the second half. Then Algona rallied, >and ran the, score to 18-7' to close 'the half. -In the second half the Mason Cityans, with a comfortable lead, played to the fan gallery by holding the ball in their defense zone, Algpna's defense consisted of five men guarding the Algona basket, and the locals relied on the opposing team to bring the ball into action by trying to score at the Algona basket. The Mason Cityans, however, refused to attempt the basket, and tossed the ball back, and forth to each other, brie of 'the i Mason Cityans even sat down on the bal), much to the amusement of fans, ,T]ie locals meanwhile waited patiently, holding to then* defense, which the Mason City- ans had hoped to break by aggravating-them, '.:••',. , ' • Algona fought. hard in the third quarter, winning eight points to Mason City's seven, In the final period both teams played nip and tuck, with Algona scoring 11 points to 14 for Mason City, ' Mason City defeated Spirit Lake in the finals Saturday night, and will represent this section of the state in a state tournament, Livermore won ite games in Class IB, defeating Rudd, 31-19, in the finals Saturday evening.

Watkins, Hurt, was dismissed, in Justice Panson's court Friday on motion of G. W. stillman, acting county attorney.

Percentages in that edition were: Crime, 7 per cent; ; .woather.i 8; society,'41; (sports, 13; editorial, 13; general news, 60. To dispell some popular Ideas of newspaperlng, Mr. Hall remarked that reporters no longer run around with paper pad and pencil; not all managing editors are grouchy; especially as portrayed in the movies; most reporters are college graduates; and newspapers not only give the people what they . want but also strive to give them something of educative value. Editors find their greatest problems In what to print and what to omit. Newspapers receive fro'm three to four times as much as they can print every day, and it is the editor's job to chooso from the mass what is worthwhile.. . ,,Mr. Hall's remarks held the attention of the club till one o'clock and several members remained for personal discussions. ,.
