M. iHauberg, Wm. F. Steele", and A. H. Borchardt attended a general meeting of Iowa retailers at Des Moines Friday at which the new state retail sales tax, which becomes effective April 1, was explained. iRetailers are specifically required (by the new law to pass this tax on to consumers. In other words the- tax must toe added to every sales item. The tax is '2 per cent. Most of the discussion centered on sales of items priced at less than a dollar. Tentative Tax Schedule. The 'following plan of collection was presented and adopted: Items priced at one cent to 14c— no tax. Fifteen cents to 65c—one cent tax. Sixty-six cents to 99c—two cents tax. From $1 up—two per cent figured on the major fraction of each cent of tax. Thus an item costing fl.25 would require two cents tax or $1.27, but an item costing $1.26 would require three cents, the extra penny because it goes into the major fraction. ' Technically this schedule is not legal, and will have to be approved by the state board of assessment and review, titular head of sales tax collections. Consumers Must Pay. One thing retailers will have to bear in mind is that the tax will be collected on the total of gross sales. Thus if a store does a business of $10,000 the tax will be ?200, irrespective of whether it is collected from consumers, ilf the store collects only $150 from consumers, the balance of $50 will have to be paid by the store. Details of collection have not yet been determined, and rulings by the •state attorney general's office will have to be made on many-points. law Says, "1'ass It On." The tax must be paid quarterly. The law becomes effective April 1, and the first payment will be bas,ed on April, May, and June business. As the report must be made by the 20th of the month in which the tax is due, retailers must file reports, with checks for the tax, by July 20 for the first quarter. The second quarter is due October 20, the third January 20, and so on. The requirement to add the tax is in the bill, and the law makes it mandatory for the retailer to add it. The wording of the law on this point follows: "Sec. 41-a. Adding of tax. Retailers shall, as far as practicable add the tax imposed under this division, or the average equivalent thereof, to the sales price or charge, and when added such tax shall - constitute a part of price or charge, shall be a such debt from consumer or user to retailer until pa_id, and shall >be recoverable at law in the same manner as other-debts. lletailer Agreements Authorized. "Agreements between competing retailers, of the adoption of appropriate rules and regulations by or- Sales Tax. Continued on page 4.) Fenton, Irvington Girls Win Prizes V Winners of a Call theater contest for the .best coloring of Scrappy cartoons were announced Saturday by Manager N. C. Rice. Books of uncolored cartoons are given to •patrons at Saturday matinees. Esther liuedtke, Fenton, won first prize of three tickets, and Dorothy Sage, Irvington, won second prize of two tickets.

Murphy, Livermore, who two weeks ago was given a county Jail sentence of 15 daye for writing bad checks, received another sentence of 25 days in Justice White's court Saturday on a like charge. He passed a number of worthless checks in Algona, and officers plan to keep foim in Jail for some time with a series of sentences. • '. '. • . ». Pinned Beneath Car.

New State Sales Tax Game Refuge Is Sought in Cresco; Irvington Township Papers are being signed by farmers in crcsco and Irvington townships this week and next for creation of a game management preserve to extend from the McGregor street bridge west of Algona to and beyond Irvington, taking in all lands bordering the DCS Moines river and including more than 7,500 acres. Many farmers have already signed, and it is expected that the necessary number of signers will be obtained next week. Plans call for the entire territory to be closed to hunting except on special permits granted at the discretion of farm owners. Hunters must get permission to hunt on any land where they hunt and must 'have cards to show 'permission. 50 STANDARD OIL DEALERS ATTEND CONFERENCE HERE Fifty dealers handling Standard Oil products attended a meeting and banquet at the Algona hotel They must also leave cars at the farm while hunting and must check m and out at the farm, so that places where hunting is done and the game killed can be checked and controlled. The plan calls for some care by fanners of birds, including improvement of cover and food conditions, so an increased game crop can have a home in which to survive. Besides this project another is being contemplated in Plum Creek township covering 2000 acres, and a third near Ledyard which will include nearly 1-2,000 acres. Others are also being planned, and a few are already in ope/ation. Milton Hardman, Algona game warden, has been instrumental with business men in local projects. and evening.

Mr. Pearson was deputy in charge of automobile registrations six years under H. N. Kruse and one year under Treasurer 'Duffy. He has lived in the county 53 years, all at Swea City till he came here. He worked many years in a Swea City store, then for ten years in a Swea City bank, after which he farmed till he came to Algona. Transient Ordered to Leave the City One Jack Stewart was arrested Monday and taken before Justice White on a charge of blasphemous and obscene language to which he pleaded guilty.

A county spelling contest will be held at Algona Wednesday, March 28, and this week and next spell- downs in various schools about the county are taking place. Only one student from each school, rural or town, is permitted. DAY OF WILD BIRDS HERE ISjECALLED Algonians Remember When There Were Great Flocks. Algona Rotarians .heard a program on the possibilities of Union Slough as a wild game reserve Monday noon. M. p. Haggard and H. OB. iRist gave reminiscences of the Slough as it was when settlers first-came to the county. Both speakers told of countless flocks of both upland game and waterfowl in the county then and recalled how settlers thought nothing of killing as many as they could simply for the sport, never suspecting that a time would come when the birds would <be almost or quite extinct. They named many 'birds now scarce. In the old days they could fill a bag in only a few minutes' hunting. Early Kossuth Visitors. Mr. Rist told of early expeditions into Kossuth county back as far as 1820, when Captain McGee's expedition crossed Kossuth, and elk were sighted in herds of 200 to 300. Nathan Boone, son of the famous Daniel, crossed the county in 1832, and in 1835 3 companies of dragoons crossed Kossuth. Many other expeditions of one kind or another crossed the county before permanent settlement was made at Algona in 1854. Mr. Rist told of an expedition made when he was 12 to Union Slough, where the hunting was truly marvelous and seems impossible now. Mr. Haggard told of a trip when he and companions found ducks_ so plentiful out of Bancroft that it took them three days to reach the Slough. Committee Appointed. Following these talks, G. F. Towne told of the Round Lake reservation both before and after its becoming a game reserve, and M. P. Weaver, program chairman, told of the -purpose of the program, which is the necessity of real backing in the county for Union Slough if it is to be made a game reserve. Such projects are 'being pushed all over the United States, he said, and to get a hearing will take a lot of pushing. The slough project, as outlined by government surveyors two months ago, would take in much land of little value, but a lot of work would have to be done to get title from present owners. Three club members, Messrs. Weaver, Haggard, and Towne were appointed by President Hauberg to cooperate with other organizations' in pushing the project. Annual C. C. Meet Tonight The annual meeting of the Community club will be held tonigiht at 7:30 at the Legion hall. A discussion on the sales tax will be held, led by H. M. Hauberg, A. H. Borchardt, and Wm. *F. Steele, who attended a retailers convention at Des Moines Friday at which application of flhe tax was discussed. Other matters are scheduled to be brought up. Following the general meeting there will be election of directors. A general review of the year's work, which has been one of the busiest in the history of the club, will be given. Activities 'have been largely increased through such agencies of new legislation as the NRA. Lunch will be served and the annual card tournament held. OFFICE HERE GETS JOBS FOR 11 MEN A national reem/ployment office has been opened on the second floor of the Iowa State bank building through cooperation of the Algona Community club with the national organization. This is a government project, and for the present it is temporary, ibut its scope is certain to be ibroadened and its activities made permanent. At present this is known as a district office, and T. A. Trauger has been placed in charge. His duties include registration of every person without a Job and of employers wanting help. Through him jobs are portioned out, and the office is designed to take over the reemployment duties of the CWA when the latter goes out of existence May 1. So far 11 men and one woman have been furnished employment by the office. The office is designed as a clearing house for jobs of all kinds, whether skilled or not, and clerical as well as manual. The Community club is furnishing office rent and equipment, but it is anticipated that the government will take it over completely soon. All salaries are paid by the government! Boosters Defeat Colored Quintet The Algona Boosters basketball team won from a Chicago American colored team on the local floor last week Wednesday evening, 26-24. The game was close and exciting throughout. The colored boys were ahead at the half 21-18. Playing on the Independent team were Deim and Peterson, Swea City; Willert, Wesley coach; Jennings, 'Livermore; and (Pearson and Walker, Algona. The next evening the Boosters played at Spencer and were ibadly defeated, 53-20. The Boosters will play the Pasadena Majors on the local 'high school floor Saturday evening. Last night the Californians played at Ledyard, and earlier in the week they played Spencer. This is a fast team which is touring the country to attend a national tournament for independent professional teams in the east. Legion Rifle Team Will Be Organized A Legion rifle team will be organized at a meeting of (Legion officers and expert riflemen at Commander M. J. Streit's grain office tonight. Algona has an "open" charter in the National Rifle association, and a local chapter was organized four years ago. Lu Verne and Algona "shots" have competed at the local gallery under the Clyde 'Smith 'pool .hall against teams from other parts of the country in telegraphic meets and have won more than their share. Tie Legion team, if organized, will compete in a state rifle etooot. Any ex-service man is eligible to make the team, and all experts are asked to attend. Singers to Coiuo Here.

The show is a musicale, The Cat and the Fiddle, said to be one of the best this year. Besides musical ability the girls have 'had dramatic and dancing instruction at the Green school, Chicago. Their accompanist is a graduate of the •DePaul University school of music. FARMERS STILL LEAD THE BOWLING LEAGUE The Farmers bowling league team suffered an upset Tuesday evening, when Hank's Colts team defeated it in three straight games. The Farmers are still in the lead, but it is now .possible for the Phillips team to tie them. The strong Phillips team, which .has been in second place all season, last night was to bowl against 'Barry's Bowlers, who hold lower berth of the tournament. Monday evening the Courthouse Rats won two of three games from Coryell. Standings in the league before last night's games follow: Won Lost 'Farmers 28 20 Phillips 25 20 Hank's Colts 25 23 Courthouse Hats 23 25 Coryell , 2 . 2 6 Barry's Bowlers 18 27 Only 26 Votes at School Election Only 26 votes were cast at the Algona school election Monday, and all were for E.

A divorce petition was filed in district court last week-end in which Lucille Crouch seeks separation from Harry R. Crouch, charging him with non-support, drunkenness, abuse, and infidelity. FARMERS GET PAY ON 2-YR, HOG AVER AGE If They Reduce They Get $5 a Head on 75 Per Cent. •Farmers will be paid on 75 per cent of their hog average for 19321933 whether they raise that many or not. A contrary report last week was erroneous. Thus if a farmer had an average for the two-year period of 100 hogs a year, and if he reduces the required 25 per cent he will receive ?5 a head on 75 hogs whether or not he raises that many. That is to say, if a farmer raises 60 pigs, or any other number less than 7'5, he will still be paid for 75 head at $5 each, or ?375, if his average for 1932-33 was 100. This is set forth in .his corn-hog contract as follows: Contract is Quoted. "B, Hog Reduction Payment — ?5 a head on 75 per cent of the adjusted annual average number of hogs produced for market from 1932-33 litters, to eb paid as follows: "The pro-rata share of the administrative expenses of the corn- hog control association for the above-named [Kossuth] county will ibe paid to the association, and the remainder will be paid as indicated in part V hereof, in three installments: "Two dollars a head, as soon as practicable after this contract is accepted by the Secretary [of Agriculture] ; one dollar a head on or about November IS, 1934; and $2 a head on or about February 1, 1935, less pro-rata share of expenses to be deducted from one or more of these payments. Penalty for Excess Production. f ,^l e numiber of n °ss from litters marketed before, and held for future marketing, on January 1, 1935, is in excess of the number to which the producer has agreed to reduce, there may be deducted from such payment S20 a head on each or any of the hogs in excess of such number. In'iieu of such deduction, or any part there- ot, the Secretary may require a corresponding part of .such excess to be disposed of as foe may direct." It is required, however, that a contractor continue farming in order to receive the $5 a head on his 75 per cent. This is the only requirement. . The reference to Part V in the quotation concerns division of payments as agreed upon 'between the farmer and his landlord. Candidate for Governor Coming <C. F. Crane and William B. Milne, Clear Lake, were here one day last week, promoting the candidacy of their fellow townsman, Clarence Knutson, for the republican nomination for governor on a gross income tax .platform. Mr. Knutson, hardware dealer, is president of the state gross income tax association and former Cerro Gordo county representativee. He is a former (Rotary district governor and will speak on the gross income tax before the local club next Monday. Mr. Crane is a lumberman and Mr. Milne a Congregational minister, Car License Drive Opens Next Monday M. J. .Duffy, county treasurer received notice from the state motor vehicle department Monday that a drive against delinquent motor vehicle owners wio have not yet bought 1934 licenses will ibegin next Monday. The secretary of state has desired to be lenient, but feels that it is now necessary to take action. New motor vehicle licenses have not been required this year before March 1, two months later than usual.

Patterson, Burt» announced candidacy yesterday for the republican nomination for lieutenant governor. The following announcement was sent to newspa* pers: Subject to the decision of the republicans of Iowa in the June primaries I am a candidate for (the office of lieutenant governor. Under the state democratic leadership, Iowa has witnessed a long drawn out legislative session, leaving as its legacy increased tax burdens, which, for the most part must inevitably be borne by the humbler consumers of the state. Sales Tax Wage Reduced. The imposition of some $15,000,000 annual tax on food, clothing, and; other necessities means, in the fdnal analysts, just that mudh reduction in wages.. It lis a direct and violent repudiation of the avowed purpose of the national program to restore the purchasing' power of the consumers. The plain fact is, (the pre- seint s'tate democratic adminiistKH tion, hi Its tax policy, has, so far as it could, literally gutted the nartlon- al recovery program. Had it not been for determined? opposition 4n the senate a large number of addtional unworkable} unjust, and even vicious measures would 'have been adopted. Unquestionably tihe drive will be renewed to enact "into law these menacng measures when ,the legslature aguin, convenes in January., Dictatorship Scored. The government of Iowa should, be restored to its proper local and constitutional functions and be officered by people who believe *n popular rule and who do not favori dictatorial Interference with their rights of citizenship. As I see it, one of the great questions which must be determined by the people of the state is whether they are to govern, or to be governed, I believe in the original principles of ithe republican -party, and in, government of the people by the people. This includes within its scope the guaranteeing of a square deal to every citizen and the protection of the Individual In the enjoyment of the fruits of his . toil and! skill. Business is Scared. The effect of the policies of the present state administration has beein to discourage individual enterprise and to keep the citizens of Iowa, regardless of business or occupation, in a staite of uncertainty and fear. There can be no resumption of prosperous conditions in .this state <no re-employment of workers by industry, under the strong-arm rule which has been attempted during Ithe last year. My record In the past da ample warrant of opposition to the exten- tion of special favors of government or granting- special privilege to any class or Interest. My efforts 4C elected, will be along the limes of re. establishing common sense, equity, and justice dn the operation of our state government. C. B. Murtagh Confirmed. Just before the state senate adjourned it confirmed Governor Herring's appointment of C. B. Mur- tag,h as state comptroller.
