Senator C. F. Clark, Cedar Rap- ,lds, candidate for the republican nomination for lieutenant-governor, spoke last Thursday before the' Kl- wantg club on conservation of fish and game and tax reform. Opening his remarks, the senator said he felt quite at home, for he Is himself a former Klwanlan and in the audience there were a number od old friends. He was Introduced by T. P. Harrington, whith whom he served In • the house at Dee Motnes years ago. With Senator Patterson, who was a guest of the club, he has for the last four years been In close contact In the senate, and before that; In the house. He is also well acquainted with former Representative Jensen, who was also a club guest. Two other old friends were present. '• One. was J.- L. Bonar, a Ki- wanlan, who -was In the senator's law class at Iowa City: and W. C. Dewel, a club guest, was an Iowa City faternlty mate''In the mid- nlnetles. The senator also knew D. H. Goeders, Klwanlan who is a member of the new state fish and game commission. Real Conservation Begun. Speaking of conservation, Senator Clark said that the 'last legislature made an excellent start towards real conservation of wild life and natural park areas. The advocates of the bill did not obtain everything necessary, but future legislatures will doubtless be willing to follow up the precedent thus established. Senator Clark added that control of the dutnpage of sewage into rivers Is one of the big problems that must be met if a conservation program Is to be completely successful. Here In northern Iowa the rivers are comparatively clean, and it is a pleasure to walk alongside them, but in southern Iowa there Is a great contrast','with the rivers sei-v- ing as open sewers for manufacturing towns with large populations. A proposal advocated by Senator Clark would put sewage disposal on the same basis as water and electric light plants which have to pay a service charge. Out of funds thus received sewage disposal plants, too costly If built by taxation, could be erected and maintained. Discusses Economic Situation. Turning to the economic: situation, the Senator said It is contradictory, in that the United States is suffering from a surplus of goods, yet millions' are without work and [/.many are actually starving. The United States, has almost as much money as all the rest of the civilized world put together, yet money is hard to get and is much of it frozen up in one way or another. There are many reasons for this, among them the results of the World war, the failure so far to balance the national budget, the lack of stabilization of. the dollar, the breakdown of transportation, interest i Which '.must; be .paid :on debts, Ames Student Dancers TWO CHURCHES HAVE SPECIAL EASTER MEETS Good Hope, Apr. 5 — Easter was observed at both the Good Hope and the Whlttemore Methodist churches with appropriate services, special music, sacrament of the Lord's Supper, and baptism. There was reception of members at Whlttemore also and special music, and on Easter a play by a group of young women and baptism of children;. took: place a.t'Good Hope. At Whlttemore', Richard Arlan, 5-months son of Mr. and Mre. Elmo Barber, was baptized, and L. W, Swanson, his son Rex, Annabelle Crawford, and Myrtle and iola Barber were received Into the church. At Good Hope Kent Richard, two months son of. . Mr; and Mrs. Claude Seeley,? aijd:' Russell Reid, 2-months sdn of -Mr. 'and 'Mrs Sumner Parsons, were baptized. A substantial offering for World Service was received at each service. • • Henry thur; librarian, Mervln Gardner; assistant, William Dodds. Other Good Hope. The C.

The real and most heavy immediate burden le high taxation. The only way real tax relief will reach the average citizen is through reduction of state and local taxation and lowans will get relief, if at all only from their own legislature There can be no question that reduction la the first and vital step in the road back to prosperity. Property Too Heavily Burdened • Property is now burdened under •p high taxation that many persons find it more profitable to pay ren rather than own farms or town homes. A.penalty Is In fact laid on ;he home-owner and this tends to prevent the building of new homes. In the same way the farm owner la penalized, and so is not anxious to acquire more land. All this tends to ceep real property values down. If laxatlon, were greatly lowered on real estate, values would Immediately rtae. The taxes now amount to interest on an $8,000 mortgage on the Average 160-acre farm. M this were lifted, the farm would have a potential value much higher than when such a charge must be paid yearly. • , Belief in the way of lowered real property taxation is part of the program on which Governor Turner was elected two years ago, and on thto program Senator Clark Is stand- Ing- and advocating a replacement ""W •"•"•-- _ 11—rtWlo/iO — n's, new daughter ' at .„, The word "replace- vltal to a full understanding of the question. It means that tto funds realized from the income tax must be used to "replace" what is TIOW raised from taxation on property, 84 States Have Income Tax. no fewer than income tax. The from real estate. This is admittedly unfair. The New York legislature recently named a committee to study the situation and report' a method to reduce property taxation to 50 per cent of the total. Action by the last Iowa legislature forced taxes,.down on the state levy. Gives Readjustment Platform. . Senator Clark gave his'' platform for tax re-adjustment in Iowa as follows: 1. Reduction of expenditures to the last allowable cent without injury to essential governmental activities and service. .2. Equalization of assessments of real and personal property, both rural and urban, giving primary consideration to earning capacity. 3. Relief of real estate by using some portion'of /excess funds arising from motor vehicle and gasoline license fees to replace ^and reduce taxes now levied against real estate 'or street improvement and highway purposes. • • 4. Relief of real estate and reduction of taxes on farms and jomes by requiring other forms of wealth and income to bear their fair share. Concerning motor vehicle fees and the gasoline tax, Senator Clark said that receipts had exceeded the amount necessary to pay off bonds and interest on the program out- ined in the original paving program Seeing this, the cement crowd has attempted to have the program enlarged so there will be no surplus. Senator Clark and his tax group, liowever, advocate use of the surr plus either to build and gravel farm- to-market roads or turn the money Into the state general fund to replace part of the property tax. At present states have the lt government also collects its „._ Avenue from the income tax, w^ch is admittedly the fairest of »U taxes, being based entirely on of the total income of 'MuriMC, W wo , FOUR CORNERS CLUB NAMES HEW OFFICERS Four Corners, Apr. 5—The Mothers & Daughters club met last Thursday with Mrs.A Clara Dray ton.

BlNtiisslon on Rural Churches— A meeting at the Good Hope church Monday evening brought out a satisfactory crowd. An address on the .needs and importance of the rural church by the Rev. C. J. Hewitt, field worker .of the board of home missions and church extension, was greatly enoyed. Doctor Hewitt is thoroughly qualified to discuss the subject, having been Instructor in the Illff, Garrett, and Gammon-'schools of theology in this special branch. Ilaln Damages the Roads— Gravelled roads Jn this section, which were just getting in shape for comfortable travel, were thoroughly upset by the rain Monday morning, which took the frost out and left dangerous holes in many places. Some spots were made all but impassable. The writer spent a half hour Monday* afternoon trying to dig his way out of one such spot, and was finally rescued, by; kind-hearted fellow travelers.
