Cut in Gas Tax or Cut in License—Which? Recently G. C. Lloyd, Des Moines, secretary of the Iowa Pptroleum Industries Committee, made a speech at Chicago in which he suggested reduction of the state gasoline tax in the interest of drivers of limited means. More than half of Iowa's drivers earn less than $30 a week, he said, and the tax is too high for them. The Webster City Freeman took issue with TUESDAY case of loss, and as a rule they are not disappointed; but sometimes the company feela compelled to stand on its contract as plainly set forth in the policy. What is there about all this that Is tricky and deserves such a speech as the president made? He cited insurance companies particularly. But why is it that we seldom hear, of a company resisting a claim? If the "fine print" is there to help them escape fair liability, why don't they make use of their lawyers' tricks? Can it be that there is nothing in the "fine- print" which lets them escape a legitimate claim? Is it possible that their lawyers in drawing the policy forms, were not concerned with tricks but with accurately stating the terms of .the contract in the interest of both parties? There are tricky lawyers, tricky tradesmen, tricky craftsmen, tricky farmers—tricky men and women in every class. The lawyers have a. "name" for that kind of lawyer, and it is one of the most contemptuous names In the language. But that kind of lawyer never is trusted with preparation of Insurance or other important contracts. And pity 'tis that a president of the United States, knowing better, stands up to try to fool the nation into believing otherwise. The COL YUM Let's Not Be Too D—d Serious.

An argument should be just that—no more. Get your view off your chest and then forget Opinions of Editors The controversies over court-packing and Justice Black have at least demonstrated that the people are still for an unimpaired constitution. There is no difference of opinion on that, though there are differences on what constitutes impairment or attempts at impairment.

The Freeman went on to say: A reduction in gasoline taxes would help the driver who drives many miles a year (and he Is the most able to pay) more than it would help the driver who makes comparatively small mileage. But if the license fees were reduced the owner of small means could use his car more without increasing costs.

This is assuming that they run trucks which cover long distances and are on the road all the time. Mr. Lloyd read the Freeman's comment and in reply stated his case informatively and interestingly: When in the money ... takes it out of the loaning market; when it buys, it releases money which goes into the banks as loanable funds.

It is interesting to note that 5,551 of these motor vehicles bear official license plates and did not contribute to the revenue produced by the rest of them. would be only fair, for it would make the circulars pay the expense of disposing of the discarded circulars.

We were looking for the skulduggery which Mr. Roosevelt says the lawyers hide in the "fine print." But we have been disappointed, not to say grossly deceived. The "print" isn't so "fine" but that we can read it without eyestrain, and there is a -lot of it, enough maybe to fill these three columns which amount to half of the The "Fine Print" in Our Insurance Policy So She Totes for Roosevelt!

But where's the "skuldug- We should say that at least half of this "fine print" is intended to make sure of our own rights. Fairly enough, the company devotes the other half to stating just what the terms of its contract meau. We don't see that it takes a "Philadelphia lawyer" to untangle anything in this contract. It looks as if any man of common education could understand it. It's all in plain English, and if there are any trick clauses we haven't found them. Mr. Roosevelt is not much of a lawyer, but it is impossible to believe that he is not familiar with the contents of insurance policies like this. He must know, too, the legal reasons for every provision. Undoubtedly he has a stack of such policies on his own properties. Has he ever protested the "fine print" skulduggery he lius found in them — if any? True, a great many policy-holders never read their policies, and so, when fire comes may be surprised to find some limitation they did not know about. They take it on faitb. that the insurance company will take care of them in lady interviewer if she had any idea what the national debt was. She replied she did not. The announcer then asked if she thought it might run into a million dollars. She said, "Yes I believe it does." This woman apparently was at least of average intelligence, one of the type expected to be somewhat informed on what is going on. Advice Against G. 0. P. Parley. Winterset Madisonian—Again we hear much fervent discussion as to a pre-convention of republicans, similar to the "grass roots" convention of last year. No one has asked for our advice, but since it is free, we'll give it anyway. The advice is, don't do it. The "grass toots" conclave didn't produce results that were noticeable at the polls. We can think of no reason why the minority (republican) party is called upon to stick out its neck a year ahead of congressional elections, and three years ahead of the presidential elections. difference is showing up Last Wednesday the 7 a. m.
