KRUSE Algona Phone 125 SGH08Y FLAYS SALES TAX IN OPEN LETTER By Chester K. Schoby. Republican Nominee for the Legislature. Taxes are as old as the history of man. We can never hope to escape them. We can work towards an equitable distribution of the burden of government according to ability to pay. Both Dan W. Turner, republican nominee, and Governor Herring, democratic nominee, are running on tax reduction platforms, each pointing to his two- year record of achievements for proof of his claims. I have taken the time to look up the tax records In the county treasurer's office on certain properties during this period, and I find the following figures: On the quarter section owned by A. E. Clayton of Cresco township, chairman of the county corn- hog committee, the taxes levied for 1930, the year before Turner became governor, were $138.18. For 1931, Turner's first year, they were $122.01, and for 1032, Turner's second year, they were $117.19. For 1933 after the Turner reductions became effective, they were $101.87, which was a reduction of $36.31. During this period, no new levies of any kind were made. Joker In the Tax Cut. Governor Herring's administration came into power January 1, 1933, and has now announced a reduction in property taxes by abolishing the state levy, which means, according to the county treasurer's records, a further reduction to Mr. Clayton of $22.92, for 1934 and 1935. That would be fine but for the joker. In order to bring about this reduction, the Herring administration added new taxes, among which is the 2% general sales tax, estimated to bring in $15,000,000. The population of the state being about 2% Millions, this means an average tax of $6 a person, and as the average family numbers five, the sales tax will average $30 a family annually. Sales Tax Exceeds Cut. Since Mr. Clayton has an average family, it follows that for a reduction of property tax of $22.92 he is Cycles Govern Rise and Fall of Civilizations The present civilization Is perhaps not as great as, some of the lost civilizations, Miss M. J. Coate surprised the Kiwaninas by asserting at their noon luncheon last Thursday. Civilization runs in cy- yelopment, the present having, It Is thought, reached the base of the circle.

Just a Shift in Burden. Even of sales taxes amount to no more than the reduction in property tax, it is only a shifting of tax money from one pocket to the other. This method of equalizing the tax load is about as sensible as the traveling man's stunt when on a cold night, finding the sheet on his bed too short to cover his feet, he cut a piece off the top and sewed it on the bottom. These figures apply only to farm owners. How about the farm renter? More than half Kossuth county's farmers are renters. They also pay the average ?30 sales tax. Where does their reduction come in, and who gets the benefits? This will be discussed in a later article. Editor's Note—This communica- yesterday to Mr. of tion was shown Clayton, who asked publication the fact that his name was used without his knowledge or consent. Mr. Clayton feels that owing -to his connection with the corn-hog program he must take no part whatever in politics, and this accords with his instructions from Washington.
