Governor Hlck- looper's signature which Is taken for granted since he rfccom- mended the measure, makes I' the bill ft law now that it has passed both houses. Your state V 'Income tax payment has now been cut in half. •fth a letter to the Upper Des ' Mtolnes Theo. Hutchison, state representative from Kossuth, writes Interestingly of of last week's work of the legislature In Des Moines. The local option question has been fought and re-fought during the Week, as well as has the Income tax problem now in the hands of the assembly. Mr. Hutchison's letter; All day Monday and all day Tuesday the House had under consideration matters pertaining to the local option bill. The majority of -the v committee on liquor control in the House recommended that the 'local option bill be Indefinitely postponed. The., minority, recommended^to" the House that the bill be passed. It as apparent that the vote wuold be" very close in the House and Mr. Kruse moved that the bill be re-referred to the,liquor control committee for further consideration. This motion lost by a vote of 61 to!62. A motion was then made to accept the minority report. Five members then filed a demand for a call of the House, and the speaker announced that a call of the House had been demanded and was about .to instruct the sergeant at arms to • arrest all absent members and bring them to the House Chamber. About that time some one moved to adjourn, and since a motion to adjourn takes precedent over all other motions, the question was put and the House voted to adjourn, and thus temporarily cut off the call of the House. Lynch Changes Vote Tuesday morning the gentleman from Iowa county stated that he had made a mistake, that he had pushed the red by tton when he Intended to push *green button ane moved that his vote on the motion to re-refer the bill back to the liquor committee be''changed from no to yes. ~He contended that at the time the vote was being taken he was visiting with Mrs. Lynch the, only lady member of the House wsJKj 4 } nmcniwiwwr and^much preliminary 5/^/4f»^Werlng and'BO the local opt ' '* * tlbri bill'was re-refered back to the liquor control- coinmltee by. a vote of one. In other words, Monday the motion lost by one. vote and Tuesday the motion prevailed by one .Vote by reason of the change In the gentleman from Iowa county's vote. DC understand that a motion tc reconsider has now been filed at the speaker's desk so that we hare riot heard the last of the local /p- tlon question as yet. Tax Battle Looms (Monday the Senate passed'a b!i: cutting Iowa,. Income tax In half There was an amendment filed to this bill which would/In effect, require everybody to>pay their full x income tax but would allow proper,*, v >ty owners to apply one-half of the income tax^lihat they had paid towards th/ payment of their property taxJ This amendment lost in the Senate by two votes. The same amendment has been introduced House arid this matter will m / come up tie first thing tomorrow morning. The amendment has . some merit but in may opinion would be unfair to those who own no property. The vote in the House on this amendment will however be very close, Senate Passes Par-check Bill Today the Senate passed the par- check bill which I Introduced two years ago in the House.

P. French, chairman of the localJWaiviPrlce and Rationing bodrd '.announced today. He emphasized that holders of excess rationed foods are merely required to declare them and not surrender them. Not Hoarding |Mr. French explained that the Office of Price Administration does not consider the declaration of excess rationed foods a penalty as families with reserve stocks ace not necessarily hoarding. The declaration and deduction of stamps are made so everyone may start off under rationing on as equal footing as possible. The emergency stocks have been laid in by some families for use only in case of an air raid or some other disaster. However, they will be counted just as other canned goods In excess of five cans of eight ounces or more per person, and one eight-point blue stamp will be taken from the ration book for each, excess can.

New Goals Foi Soybeans, Flax and Potatoes Set For Kossuth Farmers Denny Myers, College Football Coach, Now In United State* Navy iDennis E. (Denny) Myers, former football coach at Boston college and longer ago a football star at the University of Iowa, Monday joined the navy as a lieutenant. Denny revealed that he applied for his commission late in December, just before he lead his Eagles to Miami, Florida, for their unsuccessful clash with Alabama. He received orders to report for active duty at the Nbrth Carolina preflight school, Chapel Hill, N. C.' Thinks College Football Out "I think college football, as we have known it, is done for the duration," Myers said Monday. "Under present conditions I am convinced that everything I could do at Boston College I could do better In the navy. I believe that every able-bodied man should get into some kind of war service. The thing for us to do now is go out and lick those guys who are responsible for. this situation." (Denny, son of Mrs. Win.

Kossuth county farmers this week received a greater crop production challenge for 1943 when new soybean, flax and commercial potato goals were announced. The new goals for soybeans and flax were necessary to meet the steadily increasing demand for fats and oils and protein feeds. Increase 5,000 Acres Generally the boost in acreage wMl reach about 5,000 foi; each crop above that of 1942. The soybean goal this year will be 59,600 acres and that of flax 15,400 acres. The goal set for commercial potato acreage in the county has been placed at 325 acres. In the state the soybean goal has been 'boosted 150,000 acres and the flax acreage has been upped 25,000. Tflie goal for all potatoes in Iowa this year will be 82.000 acres compared with 65,000 acres in 1942. .,. . , Incentive Payments Support prices and incentive payments are expected to get the increased production, according to A. J. Loveland, Iowa USDA war board chairman. Incentive payments will be made to farmers who exceed 00 per cent of their individual farm goals for these crops. Maximum acreage eligible for payment will be 20 per cent of the individual farm goal, except on farms with goals of less than five acres when incentive payments will be offered on the following basis: soybeans, $15-per acre; flax, $10 per acre; potatoes, 50 cents per bushel on the normal yield of the potato acreage. Incentive Example An example covering the incentive payment would mean: If a farmer's soy bean goal was 40 acres incentive payments will be made to him for planting from 90 per cent to 110 per cent of goal. That is, if he plants 37 acres he would be entitled to one acre incentive at $15. If he planted 44 acres which would be 110 per cent 'of "goal he would be entitled to 8 acres at $15 p'er acre. The same basis and percentage applies to flax except that the incentive payment would be $10 per acre. . ?ubject selected by the on AjxtVajy lor an ensay con- ^*WLMy£S $t» a£4«p«n.

Patrolman Hutchinson ant Sheriff Art Cogley were called and Mrs. Sheridan was rushed to the hospital. It semed to be generally agreed that the accident because o: the '*y pavement, could be charget to neither of the drivers. The damage • to the cars was estimated a fISO each.
