MK, KRASCHEL AND THE LAWS OF MATHEMATICS In reply to Senator Patterson Xieut. Gov. Kraschel was reported in Saturday's Des Moines Register as saying: To cost each family $30 in sales taxes on the average, as Patterson maintains, would necessitate the spending of $1500 by each family. The average family does not spend that much. "When the sales tax law was enacted it was expected to yield 515,000,000. This was given out in "tie state democratic clip sheet sent to newspapers. Last week-end State Auditor Storms announced that the tax .•was expected to yield $14,000,000 this year. There seems to be every reason to believe that with perfection of methods of collection during the coming year, and in view of probable increased personal expenditures because of further progress in recovery from the depression, the original estimate of $15,000,000 •will be reached or exceeded after this first year. Now, then, the population of the -state is 2,500,000, in round numbers, hence the tax by another year will be $6 a head (being already $5.10, according to Mr. Storms); and since the average family numbers roughly five (this, it is believed, is not disputed) the average family tax must be $30, unless Mr. Kraschel has lately -changed the laws of mathematics. What Mr. Kraschel probably had in mind was not the average family at large, but the average poor family. In that event he is of Bourse right: The average poor tamily does not spend $1500 because it does not have that much to spend. This, however, does not let Mr. Kraschel out of his dilemma he attempts to show that the ie rate 2 instead of 3 per cent. lere is the table revised: ncome Tax Pet. 1,000 $ 20 .02 5,000 30 .006 10,000 30 .003 25,000 30 .0012 50,000 30 .0006 As will be noted the correction oes not cure the disparity which was used to make visible. The nan with a family of five who arns only $1,000 a year pays one- iftieth of his income in sales taxes, ^hile the man with a $5,000 income ays only one-166 2-3. And so on own the table; the richer the tax- ayer the less he pays in propor- ion to income. It was perhaps be- ause the table made this fact so rrefutably evident that Mr. Craschel dropped it after pointing ut the inadvertent error in the irst line o£ the original table. The plain and inescapable fact Is hat the general sales tax is in- lefensible from any standpoint of ustice in taxation and by its na- ure is a denial of the principle of axation according to ability to Day. It heaps a burden out of proportion on the poor and at their ;xpense favors the well to do and he rich. TIMELY TOPICS Mr. Kraschel seems possessed of n urge to demand resignations, hough he didn't resign himself vhen he was under indictment. In is famous Moville speech he ailed for Dickinson's resignation, nd now he wants Patterson as ominee for lieutenant governor o resign the senatorship. Which night look to Vice President Garer like a dirty dig. Mr. Garner id not resign his seat in congress ill after he was elected. Governor Herring recently told a adio audience that the sales tax ad made taxpayers out of 67 per ent of the people who never paid ixes before, and Editor R. S. Sper- eck, of the Swea City Herald, re- larked, "that sounds impressive." t does, indeed — till it is remem- ered that the 67 per cent consists f renters, and renters pay their hare of property taxes in rent. The democratic complaint that he state republican leadership is ffering no substitute for the gen- ral sales tax is well founded. The tate republican platform carpen- 3rs did a bungling job when they tiled to lay a selective sales tax- lank — exemption of necessities, nd sales taxes on goods that only ie well to do and the rich can af- jrd. This failure may cause the spublicans to lose the election. The Colyum l*f» K«t to to* D— 4 aerlotii Dudley Held Meets His Fate nnd Knows It, Not. [From Dudley's Autobiography] One Saturday afternoon, as Mr. Foley and I were starting for Gal- litin, we passed a neighbor's house, and a little girl with rosy cheeks, black sparkling eyes, heavy black hair, and a broad, happy smile came running out to inquire about our bringing her mail. Mr. Foley introduced me to her, and she blushed deeply as she stood there in her calico dress, short sleeves, and bare arms, looking at me. A perfect picture of rustic simplicity, virile bouyance, and good health, I thought, as I acknowledged the introduction and exchanged a few words with her. Then we drove on, and I did not give her another thought, as I had not even the faintest idea at this time that her fate was stalking behind the scenes at that little interview, and that I had met for the first time the little girl who was afterwards to become my wife.

The were won by PATTERSON AT AURELIA [Editorial in Des Moines Register.] It was strong language that Senator Patterson, republican candidate for lieutenant governor, used at Aurelia, when he declared that Governor Herring "Is conducting a deliberate campaign of misrepresentation with regard to tax reduction." And unless he manages to support the charge by something more persuasive than the assertion that property tax increases for relief purposes counter-balance the property tax decreases effected through the sales tax, the language will hardly seem warranted. For, as Budget Director Murtagh lisa pointed out, higher levies for relief were inevitable, regardless of who was running the state government. That being so, whatever saving to property owners has been effected by means of the sales tax means just that much less that the property owners will have to put up. Senator Patterson himself, it appears from the record, took a lead in the last session in getting the permissible maximum county levy for poor relief raised, in anticipation of the probably greater emergency need, He did that quite properly, and is entitled to credit for foreseeing correctly what the need would be. Surely no discredit, then, attaches to those who, being in office, are obliged to notify county authorities that the need will be no less. And while the three and a four million dollar replacement of property taxes by sales taxes is effective this year, Comptroller Murtagh mentions also that the increase of around four million dollars in the total state poor relief levy will not be payable until next year, when there will be available a much greater sum from . sales taxes to apply as further replacement against property levies. In any case, the fine distinction between an absolute reduction of total state property taxes, compared with the last levying, and a saving in property taxes as against what would have been inescapable but for the sales tax, Is not a distinction on which accusations of malignant falsification can rest. Perhaps before the campaign Is over there will be found plenty of valid points of criticism that can be used against the Herring administration effectively. But the attack on this particular matter does not seem to be one of the number. Monday Others in es W. E. re, W. P. Fred Bar- Brundage, Carl It must by now he apparent t Iowa democrats that Governor Her sprang his announcement to,, • ----- •---"•"""" •.""- -""rrmg sprang nis announcement o n equitable as between removal of the state levy too soon ?l and Hi 6 If U had been dela yed till late Oc tt n ?« H In another editorial on this page it is pointed out that the poor man l>ays a much larger proportion o: Jiis income than does the well to do •man or the rich man. As there shown the man who earns only 51,000 a year pays one-fiftieth of liis income in sales tax, while the •man whose income is $5,000 pays •only one-166 2-3. This proportion "holds no matter how low the income. A man earning $750 pays $15, and a man earning $500 pays .510, and in both cases the tax is one-fiftieth of the income. SENATOR PATTERSON AND HIS SPEECH AT AURELIA The county democratic central committee, Lyle McEnroe, Algona, secretary, has announced in a letter to all Kossuth newspapers under date of Monday, that it has "set up an office from which you will be supplied from time to time •with newspaper articles ... for publication." The first communication is an editorial from Saturday's Des Moines Register attacking Senator Patterson's Aurelia speech. As a ••courtesy to the democratic county «entral committee, the editorial is reprinted elsewhere on this page. It the Advance may offer a suggestion it is that future releases be anostly communications from Kos- snth democrats. That would add a fcig element of local interest which as lacking in clippings. The Aurelia speech deems to "iave got a considerable way under the skin of the state democratic leaders. Lieut. Gov. Kraschel devoted much of his Friday speech liere to Patterson's charges. The next democratic clip sheet sent out *o editors is expected to add to the •castigation, and of course the •newspapers are receiving mimeo- .eraphed communications also. Senator Patterson's position is that the democrats were makin great claims for the sales tax as Cancans of reducing property taxes Ibut were saying nothing about th *act that under a bill passed las winter the levies for poor fund had been raised enough to cove snuch of the savings. Pattersor called this misrepresentation, an< charged it directly to Governo .Herring. As the Advance understands it Patterson is not criticising the in «rease, where justified, but is pro testing what he conceives to be an -attempt to gain credit for property 'tax reduction while failing to ac knowledge that the new poor fund Sevies will in large part offset wha is saved; and it seems to be true that the administration from Her -ring down was soft-pedaling tha ;tact till Patterson brought it out. The Advance regards this controversy as a side-issue, has not l>een able to get much interested in 4t. and wonders why the democrats are so touchy about it. there would not have been time to expose its fake nature be fore election day. As the cas stands, everybody will know Ion before November 6 that the reduc tlon is a bad joke. Mr. Kraschel spoke of the Ad vance's last week's editorial ans wering Mr. Hulse's letter in th Register as an "attack" on tha gentleman. It iwas an "attack truly enough, but on Mr. Hulse' argument, not himself. It happen; that Mr. Hulse and this write are close friends, and nothing de lights them more than clean de bate—in which, by the way, neithe ever finds it necessary to charge the other hood." with "deliberate false Opinions of Editors Question of the Day. Knoxville Express (Dem.)— Sometimes we wonder whether the old-fashioned bootlegger looks upon the new state liquor store as a heartless, unscrupulous competitor or as an aristocratic but courteous associate. SALES TAXES HIT THE I'OOK, FAVOIt THE B1C1I In his county fair speech Friday Xieut.-Gov. Kraschel called attention to an error in the first line of « table included in a last week's Advance editorial showing how the sales tax rate goes down as income «oes up, thus favoring the rich as against the poor. I Mr. Kraschel was quite right. ij 'The first line of the table inadvert- «ntly applied the average annual ( family-of-five $30 sales tax to a with an income of ?1,000, whereas since the tax is 2 per cent tine figure should have been ¥20 and Fake Tax Reduction. Bloomfield Republican—Take the man who owns a house valued al pl,500. Suspension of the state evy will cause him to pay about !3 less in property taxes. The sales ;ax at a penny a throw will amount .o anywhere from $10 to $50 a year :o offset the tremendous reduction of $3 in his property taxes! Real TS. Fake Reduction. Webster City Freeman-Journal— As a matter of fact, under the leadership of Governor Turner, the tax urden was reduced for the first ime in the history of the state. The recent action of the state board of assessment and review in cutting the state levy by more than $6,000,000 is not the result of any reduction in taxes, but Is due to the new three-point tax law and is merely a shifting of the burden from property to other taxes. And the Taxpayer Pays! Eagle Grove Eagle—A printer at Davenport made a competitive bid on printing 700 copies of the Scott county financial report. His bid was $100 under other bids. This aroused the ire of General Johnson, boss of the NRA, and the poor printer lost both job and Blue Eagle. It is not easy to understand why bids are asked for, the lowest rejected, and the bidder punished. It is such inconsistent, illogical acts as this under NRA that bring it into general disrepute. Speaking of Political Duds. Knoxville Journal — Governor Herring's big bid for re-election, the announcement that there will no state property tax levy next year, seems to have been a dud. The cancellation of 2.2 mills state evy amounts to a tax reduction of $2.20 on each $1,000 of assessed value, an amount so small that it is really outweighed by the amount tried, although I should like to. hear that if one draws a mark upon the floor, and places a chicken' beak on this mark, the fowl will be come hynotized and unable to re move it's beak, but will stand there as if glued to the spot, until re leased.—W.

The opening game of the season is only ten days away, and the squad is undergoing strenuous training.
