At the Among those who chanced to take notice of this newspaper's announced determination to oppose the election of Dan Turner next November, there have been some interesting reactions. Because friends are prone to think alike and because most exchange of opinion is between friends, we have been more praised that condemned for our position. It isn't our thought, however, that we are leading any great movement of voters away from the Corning nominee. We don't, take ourselves that seriously. Objection to our stand has appeared in two forms. A few have assailed us as being "a poor republican." Others—and the adjoining column of clipped editorials contains a good example of this—have held that this newspaper and other Turner bolters haven't been definite enough in our criticism. This first objection can be answered with the observation that we have made no boasts or claims of for a democratic administration to enact his pet income tax idea into Kins and after a las't-ditch fight by! farm land in Iowa, for example, is per- enactment last winter. The whole per - . , son which paved the wav for its !atlons llol( l mortgages on only 12 tlle land ' or on only acres out of some 629 -, seem to be inevitable made tax reduction the issue when 'that the act, whether wise or not Senator Patterson failed in the ; mortgaged and only a limited senate only because! the democrats 'centage of the mortgagors are, united with a few iltandpat repub-1 bankrupt.

A vacillating judgment never found in a good executive.

Example C is also unworthy of reply. It is a flimsy generalization unsupported by facts, and so •violates the professed intent of Mr. Hall to be specific. There is no showing that the governor is, or ever has been, making a business congressmen. Senator Borah says truly: "Fig- show conclusively that while , usness . of lending his own money on farm i there has been some nse m prices security, or that his fortune is of farm commodities, in every in- based on income from interest on s ! ance where that has taken P lace ' such loans, nor thai if he made • £he nse m the prices of things such loans he charged more than!j v the ., fjarmer has to buy has the going rate of interest. far - exc eeded the rise in the price In No. 2 Mr. Hall charges Governor Turner with vacillating judgment and cites the So-called "cow- of his commodities."

The ; time when they will influence votes governor hardly seems to have ' in the November election, and he been "vacillating," according to Mr. Hall's own charge. On reflection Mr. Hall might prefer "mistaken," for that is all that his complaint amounts to. It is always a pretty serious probably speaks the truth, but what he cannot deny is that the effect, though unintentional, will be the same.

MANY A MOTHER in Kossuth, as elsewhere, never ceases to mourn a baby lost in death. To all such mothers the Colyum dedicates this tender paragraph from Leigh Hunt— "They who have lost an infant are never, as it were, without an infant child. Their other children grow up to manhood and woman- hodo, and suffer all the changes of mortality; but this one is rendered an immortal child, for death has arrested it with his kindly harshness and blessed it into an eternal image of youth and innocence." ANOTHER OF George H. Tree's traveling poems has turned up. This time it is a tribute to the country weekly entitled "The Paper in Our Own Home Town," which has often been printed before. Chas, B. Carlon, former Algona boy who lives at Willow Grove, Pa., sends a copy of The Guide, of that town, in which the poem appeared two weeks ago. The Example: His failure through his taxation program even though he had an overwhelmingly republican legislature. It remained longer say that we aren't specific. We shall support Governor Herring in the belief that he is by far the abler executive on the basis of demonstrated ability, the two administrations compared. Nobody has been more violent than this newspaper in criticizing certain phases of the Herring regime but when all the elements are assem- put i bled for addition and subtraction, he comes out far ahead of his republican opponent of now and two years ago. Confirmed Bachelor is Wed— L. C. Hansen and Darlene Glendora March were married at 9:30Satur- Burbank, and Helen Paetz. day evening by the Rev. Alexander The committee for the afternoon English at the bride's home on Call party at the clubhouse at 1 o'clock street. Present were Pauline (next Wednesday afternoon includes March, Mrs. Casey Loss, and Wat- Mrs. N. C. Rice, chairman, and the son March, the only witnesses. The marriage was a complete surprise for friends of both parties, even to Mr. Hansen's partner, O. Madson, of the Madsou & Hansen tailor shop. Mr. Hansen, who has. lived here some 40 years or more, was considered a confirmed bachelor. The bride was dressed in Mesdames W. B. Quarton, F. E. Kent, W. P. French, and J. N. Kenefick. Country Club Dinner Party- Contract bridge was played at six tables at a regular Country club dinner party Tuesday even- passed. This is a second amendment to the bankruptcy act, and it applies where the debtor cannot get an agreement on the basis of the first amendment. The act puts him in a position to compel the creditors to give him lime in which to try to work out. Mortgagor Stays on Lnnd. The act lets the farm mortgagor stay on the land for either five or six years, provided he meets the terms of the amendment. Two plans are provided. In either case the farmer confesses bankruptcy and pledges all property above exemptions, but under the new amendment this Is provisional and he has a chance to work out. Under either plan he goes Into court and the land is appraised. If the appraised value of a farm is, say, $10,000, and the mortgage $14,000 he gets tha $4,000 off at the expense of the creditors, who, however can demand a new appraisal at the end of the term if desired. Under the first plan the creditors have to agree. In case of agreement the debtor pays only one per cent a year, and the first year pays nothing else. The second and thirc ! years he pays 2% per cent of the 'appraised value in addition to the I interest, and the fourth and fiftl years he pays 5 per cent in addition to the interest. Then in the [sixth year he pays all the rest of the appraised value plus the interest, and is free. When Creditors Disagree. The second plan comes into play if the creditors will not agree to the first plan. Under the seconc plan the farmer goes into couri and pays a reasonable rental for a term of five years during "which he cannot bo dispossessed, and at the end of the term he has the same privilege of buying the land at the [appraised value. | Mr. Bonar said that under the (Hoover amendment G. W. Still- |inan, whose official title is county j conciliator, has been named to consult with debtors and their creditors in an effort to arrive at trusteeship agreements which do not involve bankruptcy. Where such agreement can be reached this is a better way than the Frazier-Lemke plan because it does not involve bankruptcy. 18 New Cars Sold Here in 2 Weeks In the last two weeks 18 new automobiles have been sold in Kossuth.

Rodeo Proves Hit; May Come Again The' Clyde S. Miller rodeo left last week-end for Kansas, where it has been booked for shows. It gave universal satisfaction here.

The fair association cleared only some $100 on the show. The show was so favorably received that another may be dated next year. Hent Prostrates Weginnn.
