All amendments were defeated Includ- ing'the banking committee amendment. I Introduced the bill two years ago and It developed into a highly controversial matter before 4h6 session was over. Most of you will remember that it passed the House two years ago tout failed to pass the Senate. This measure will require all banks to clear their Checks at par. j Income Tax Reduction ,TJie House passed the. Income Tax Reduction bill exactly as the Senate passed the measure so that the 1942 and 1943 Iowa Income tax will be cut fifty percent.

Giqssl, adjutant, the crack of the v rifle and smell of powder smoke is being experienced by eleven new enrollees attending classes at the Kossuth County Club's Small Arms Firing School at the Bryant School build- Ing here. The new enrollees are Irvin Olson, Lee Turner, Kenneth Brandon, Harvey Reuter, Holman Anderson, Harvey Larson, Harold Brandt^ Raymond Besch, Robert Turner, Wayne Zeigler and Gene Combs. With preliminary lectures, demonstrations and exercises behind them, the students took to the firing line with issued .22 caliber military type rifles. The firing at this stage of instruction is confined to the prone posjton, most most commonly used military position, ; and, according to 'Chief .Instructor Wm. Clawson, results oh „,,. ,-_ speeded up-steadily during the remaining sessions TUESDAY SEES HRECOMPANY CALLED TWICE An alarm sent in rom the Nine Duryea home, East Call street, al 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon brought the fire equipment to that residence when the heat from an electric irpn had started a blaze In bed clothing Chemicals subdued the flames though the 'bed clothes and the mattress were ruined. A later alarm at 3 o'clock brought the ; flre company to the Joe Elbert' residence, 220. E. Elm street. It seems that a kerosene stove in the basement had become out ol control and that the basement and house was filled wth kerosene smoke and soot, though. the danger of fire was eliminated by calling the fire boys. Damage to the inter. lor of the house and contents by sooty smoke, however, was, quite extensive.

'The housewife is urged to take an inventory of her rationed foods prior to the day she registers her family. It is suggested that she make this count on Sunday, February 21. The smaller cans, containing less than eight ounces should be put back on the shelf. By counting out five cans for each member of her family she will have left the exact number of containers she must declare on the registration sheet. Clip From Papers The OPA suggests that the declaration copies be clipped from newspapers (one, appears OR page one of this issue) and fill them out properly and this would save much time for the registrant and clerks on registration day. It is not necessary to have a separate declaration for each member of the family, one sheet will cover all. The declaration simply askb for the amounts of coffee on hand as of Nbvember 28, and the amount of canned goods on hand as of February 21. Home 'packed is exempt. Summary of Foods In the case of coffee the net figure is arrived at by taking the total number of .pounds on hand as of November 28 and deducting one pound for each person whose age is stated as 14 or over on Book One. In summarizing the foods that are included in the new program ration officials listed all commercially canned fruits (including spiced), canned vegetables, canned fruit and vegetable juices canned soups, chili sauce and catsup. Those not affected are olives, pickles, relish, jams, preserves, spaghetti, macaroni nodoles and home canned foods. Clip This and Fill Out Save time for yourself and for the clerks and clip this out, fill it out properly and present it to the registration, clerk on the day you register. It will jbe much easier for you and save the boards a lot of time and work.

LASTSA11JRDAY EICHENBERGER IN ARMY AIR CORPS NOV. 27TH Local Draft Board Sets Out Records Showing No Jurisdiction Over Lakota Young Man (In a letter tp the Upper Des Moines, Wm Janvrin, Lakota farmer, insinuates that this paper has been misinformed concerning the status of Bernard Eichenberger, Lakota, which was -printed in our January 14th issue. In justice fco the local draifti bpard .regarding the enlistee's status, we print the records as furnished by the board and which conclusively prove that Eichenberger the army air corps and is awaiting call. Mr. Janvrin's letter follows: Janvrin Writes Lakota, Iowa, Feb. 13, 1943 Editor Upper Des Moines: Your paper of January 14 had an article istating that! Bernard Eichenberger was enlisted in' the army air corps of Nov. 27, 1942. I wonder if you was misinformed about this as it seems he must be in the intelligence force as he stil is running around here in his civ ilian clothes. Am enclosing two clippings from the Bancroft Regis ter of February 4 which probablj will confirm this ... Wm. Janvrin. The Board's! Letter In justice to the local draft board we print their side of the matter showing records which prove tha the board has no jurisdiction over Eichenberger, as follows: (Records in the Kossuth County Local Board office show that Bernard Emil Eichenberger, Order No 11550 of Lakota, was enlisted for the .United States Army on November 27th, 1942. On November 30th 1942, the local board received official notice from Captain Floyd R Miller, recruiting officer for the Iowa Headquarters District, Old Federal Bldg., Des Moines. On December 1st, 1942, the board re ceived further notification of Eich ejiberger's enlistment from the As. sistant State Director of Selectivi niltedj States Army Msted?fpr.;^S'; Lancaster Colonel' Lancaster stated in hi notice that, "This is authentic in formation of enlistment and is your authority to place" this registrant in class I-C." Class I-C is classification of men enlisted in, the Armed Forces of the United States. Eichenberger, .as is the case o: practically all men who enlist in the Air Corps of either the Army or the Navy, was immediately put in inactive status to await call for active duty as soon as a vacanc; •in the air school is open. This period of waiting is usually from two to six months. Enlisted men on inactive duty wear civilian clothes A registrant who has been enlisted that is, sworn in in any of the branches of the Armed Forces, is no longer under the jurisdiction of the Local Board, to.ut under the jurisdiction of the branch of service for which he has been enlisted.
