DECBYSGOLD AS BASE FOR WORLD MONEY TODAY By William Capculns. Wlnnetka, fill., Feb. 23—From the lorertflent established' by Mr. Hoover in negotiations with the debtor nations, I must pay my subscription before I can be heard on any other question. Hence, I enclose check for another year. So many years have passed since I was a resident of Kossuth that I •am now familiar with only a few •names in your news Items. However, • I enjoy the paper for the memories lit revives, and also because it gives ALGONA, IOWA, MARCH 2, 1933 Mr. Capeslus, who Is a Chicago lawyer, IB a brother of Frank and John Capeslus, Algona, Edw.

' May I be so bold as to. criticise •your explanation of the money question in your issue of two weeks ago? •The question was ably discussed, •but there are certain phases to which you did not refer. Maybe your republican principles kept you Jfrom referring to them, or perhaps |it was oversight. I have discovered that the -ultra- Mnservatlve citizen, usually the Jliolder of tax-free bonds or other •government securities, always has •i good argument against tampering ivlth the monetary unit. The trouble is that the fluctuation (in the monetary unit is an illusion. jJust as people say the 'sun rises, •when it fact it is the earth that [turns, so they say gold remains al- FISH & GAME COMMISSION ISWROVED Compulsory T.

By granting- authority to the commission to make regulations the jsame can be made when and where I needed. The legislature Is not in a position to do 'this, because as a rule It meets only every two years, and if is impossible to adopt regu- latolns by statute in advance to meet conditions as they occur. Enforcement of unsatisfactory secure statutory regulations is difficult commodities, a "d expensive. The fish, game, and of Labor Sta- fur'resources of the state are worth $10,000,000 to $12,000,000 a year and can are too valuable to depend on inadequate statutory regulations. •For many years in the past, each session of the legislature attempted, to enact satisfactory regulatory measures pertaining to fish and game, but each following session changed or altered these regulations; arid as a consequence the present regulations are confusing, unsatisfactory, and difficult to enforce. The time expended by the legislature during the past three sessions on bills of this nature has cost the state in excess of $90,000. following this, a number of amendments were offered, but all were defeated, and the bill passed the house by a vote of SO-20.

The supposition was that this would provide an avenue for disposal of surplus corn and other grains. For some reason I am not as en- tnuhiastlc about this proposition as some other members. I still recall the corn sugar propaganda. If anyone profited by this experiment, I am certain that it was not the farmer. We had a public hearing on this measure Tuesday. The affair struck me as a fight between a group of promoters and the oil interests. I am not saying that the bill will not yet my support, but I do say that 1 1 am doing some serious thinking about it. The spring vacation starts Friday, and this will give me an opportunity io concentrate on appropriations. I have a great deal of work that must be done before we reconvene, and I trust that I may realize my plans Telephone Cuts Ar o Demanded— The town council met last Thursday with a representative of the Iowa Union Telephone company to discuss lowering rates. It had been asked that house phones be reduced from $1.50 to $1.00 and business phones from $2.00 to ^1.50. Heny Myre, AV. C. Smith, and J. E! Vaughn were the taxpayers committee who presented the demand. The telephone company was represented by J. M. Shea, Emmetsburg, and T, F. Johnson. No decision wa reached, and it was decided to con tinue the hearing till the Marc meeting. The taxpayers commiitte also asked that light and powe rates be reduced one-third, but thei was no representative present fron the Interstate Power company.
