To add a further thrill to the marvelous sensation of meeting old Santa, the patron saint has setit word that he will meet his little friends in his very own north pole cabin which he 4s bringing with 'him to Algona. Don't Press and Push. Santa radograms the caution, though, rthat he is seeing ihis little tots with the full realization that there will be a pressing throng of them milling about to see him. For the protection of the children, he asks emphatically that they do not crush together in the push which usaully takes place when children come to see him. Santa takes a regular amount of (time with each child, he says, and warns that pushing from behind will interfere with chances of seeing 'him. If the children who wish to talk with him and shake his hand will come into his cabin orderly, everything will be fine, Santa says. He hopes that the children will appreciate his coming to see them and parade for them sufficiently to cooperate with him to this extent. Everything in Heartiness. The place t o greet Santa In his own log cabin abode is in the Court House square, where, as last year, Santa located his cabin following the parade. Hhere Mayor C. F. Specht will welcome Santa in behalf of Algona and here Santa, i n turn, will greet all his friends, both big and small who wish to see him. While in his location at this point, Santa also will set up his loud speakers and broadcast his radio program of cathedral chime music and the local talent numbers arranged by D. Wane R. Collins, of the Santa. Claus committee.

A PERSONAL NET income tax •**• a business tax on corporations, and a retail sales tax are included in a 60-page bill prepare by ;he special tax committees of rlouse and Senate, and now -before both Houses as Sill No. 1. This bill is regarded as the administration tax measure, and will probably be crowded along to passage as such. The personal net income tax section is practically that advocated by Senator Geo. W. Patterson. It would levy a one per cent tax on net income of $1,000, and 5 per cent on the fifth $1,000' and all above that.

T AST WEEK a long bill, House Fil 131, was introduced. This bill contemplates making everybody pay some taxes. Some call it the gross sales tax/ The bill title calls it "Property Tax (Limitation and Relief Act of 1933."

There are few exemptions business, salaries, farming, live stock, everything will have the "privilege" of paying.
