Very few congregations are in as good financial condition as the First Congregational ChurcTn at Britt, and this duo largely to Mr. Southgate's careful management. Not only did ;he serve the church in Britt, but resurrected the churdh at Garner and preached there Sunday mornings. He also got the cihurch at Forest City supplied with a minister. Last October he was elected moderator of the Mitchell Association of Congregational churches and was serving as such at death. It can truly be said of the Rev. Southgate that he "died in the harness." Mr. Southgate's work was not alone in the cihurch. He was a member of the Masonic lodge, a thirty-second degree Mason as well as being a Shriner.

"And now when you go out to buy corn, you're expected to pay 45 cents a bushel for it," tho farmer pointed out, "and you can't feed 45 cent corn at the present pjrice of hogs." Then he told of selling some shoats recently for lack of pas hire, only to discover that he lost $4.50 on the sale, without counting his labor. "You can't go on .long that way," he said. "And sometimes we're got to have a reckoning on all this drawing on the future," Mr. Mis bach added. ALGONA GIRLS WIN IN AMES BIRD CONTEST Awarded 2nd and 3rd Places in Test on Identification.

Exceptions to Ticket Tax. It would seem that shows given by traveling players must have a permit; persons giving dances or in charge of wrestling matches or baseball and other games or exhibitions, including concessionaires at fairs or celebrations; all provided admissions are charged anc the proceeds are not exempted in Paragraph D of Sec. 39 of the act which follows: "The gross receipts from sales of tickets or admissions to state county, district, and local fairs, and .he gross receipts from educational, religious or charitable activities, where the entire amount of such receipts is expended for educational, religious, or charitable purposes." Home Talent Billing Needed Under that paragraph it migh take a decision by the state boarc of assessment and review to deter mine whether the promoters of a home talent show where the director receives a percentage of the proceeds, even though the rest be devoted to educational, religious, or charitable purposes, must have a permit. The exemption is only where "the entire amount" of receipts goes for the purposes specified. The revenue derived from the MRS.

Mr. Knutson's platform calls for i gross income tax turnover of the dollar, this tax to replace all pres- nt property taxes. He would lay a one-half of one per cent tax on every dollar received by a taxpayer. Mr. Knutson estimates a gross dollar turnover in Iowa of more than twenty billions yearly, and .he tax would, he believes, raise 100 millions, which would be sufficient to take care of all government expense within the state.
