As Mr, Bonar Retires as City Attorney This newspaper desires to join in tribute to Jesse L. Bonar, retired city attorney. It is now 45 years since Mr. Bonar entered the practice of law here, and for nearly all of the time since then he guided the city legal footsteps. That in the whole period the city suffered no legal disaster is sufficient proof that Ills work was well done. When a legal question arises which does not exactly fit some statute or an authoritative supreme court opinion lawyers have to grope for the answer. In such cases patient, thorough •study must 'be grounded on fundamental judicial knowledge and training. Mr. Bonar pos sesses the knowledge and the training in high er degree than most Kossuth people know, and his legal opinions are always based thodical, laborious study. The time comes when every servant mus give way to a successor. This is the way of life, and Mr. Bonar would be last to cavil at it Happily, as he retires there are few if any who would deny him the biblical tribute, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

Washington news writer; Most of the legislators would never see them.' Like our own State Senator Gillette, they'd find the temptation to vote for teachers' pensions, or something, just too blinding.

Leach, of the Chicago Daily News. The fifty men in the survey are probably the best-trained and ablest political observers in the United States. It is their daily business to keep track of politics and ferret out the truth. They are, too, men of high principle. Not one of them, not even Frank R. Kent in a case involving the Roosevelt administration, would stoop to color an opinion on a direct political question. They might be mistaken, but they would be honest according to their lights. News-Week asked the correspondents this question: Who will be the major parties' nominees in 1940, and what party will win in the election and whyj Of course it was understood that the question was as o£ now and that present conditions are subject to change. Twenty-seven correspondents thought the re- ttolhe^n^ publican panty will win, and four more, ers, most of whom ' y thought so in case this country is not drawn into war. This made a taliy of 31. Thirteen correspondents thought the democrats would win, three more agreed but with reservations, and three were undecided.

Thd vored Income Tax Annoyances IS FAIR BUT METHODS IRK THE TAXPAYER. [From the Trner Star-Clipper.] . Tiere is no fairer tax than one on net income. If the citizen has no net income above a fair allowance for the support of wife and chili Iren, he pays no tax. If he has a gcod income, he pays. And the rates for highly paid individuals are much steeper than for the average citizen. That is all fair, so flscatory, as the tax doesn't become con- Wiat irks the taxpayer Is the methods of the collectors. A common complaint is that the experts change the forms every year. Never are the blanks left exactly the same, which causes every tax- paye- In the nation added hours of painful and sometimes expensive Inquiry into the mysteries of the now rulings. And then there are many silly restrictions which do not conform to accepted business accounting and common practice. Although they account for little difference in the amount of tax collected the regulations cause endless detail of computation that could be avoided. In short, John Citizen doesn't rnind paying a fair income tax, but he does object to the job of making out the returns required. The check he writes is far less painful than the hours spent in trying to find out what some theoretical government hired man has tried to say in an explanatory note and how he can reconstruct the answer of a perfectly sensible bookkeeping system to fit the newest edition of the return blank. ' It's the regimentation and the needless wasted hours to which the taxpayer it put that irks him. W venture it even bothers Mr. Roos velt himself, who, like most Ame leans, makes out his own report THAT QUESTION [The Sheldon Mutt,] The constitution of the state eays that redistrictlng shall be done after each 10-year census; however, It has not 'been done.

As far as the Mail has been able to learn the northwest Iowa dis- Irlcts are now as they were in .the first constitutional provision. We positively know no change has been made In the last 60 years. When the state was first district* ed, the state's northern and western portion was sparsely settled, hence larger districts were necessary. Since then, however, the population has grown, but the districts have remained the same. This is eminently unfair to us.

Now, however, the house wants a referendum held on certain proposals, as tho following Des Moines dispatch indicates: constitutional amendment safeguard on pension legislation sailed through the Iowa house by a 74-21 vote today.

For democratic choice the correspondents gave Garner 41 points; Hull, 32; Roosevelt, 28; scattered, 2-1. Farley got only 6. William A. Douglas, new supreme court justice currently boomed, got 9. News-AVeek said: "Most of those who mentioned Garner or Roosevelt as democratic nominees expected the republicans to win. All who mentioned Douglas, now being pushed as a "compi-oini.se candidate," predicted a democratic victory." There!

But why they are about it why do they not pass a resolution pro viding for a constitutoinal amend ment to adopt a genuine initiativi and referendum law that woult. furnish the people with a means of securing what they want wheth er the legislature agrees with wha they want or not? Moreover, a referendum would enable the leg islature, when 1 they get a real ho potato, to drop it into the laps o the people and let the voters de cide.

"Most readers," says a Christian Science Monitor Washington correspondent, "have not yet realized just how liberal these proposals are. They are a long, long way from the Townsend goal, but they are generous enough to raise serious question on financing." The Monitor writer goes on to say that under the proposed revision of the Social Security act a single man reaching 65 next January 1 who has earned an average of $50 a month for the three years since the original act took effect could retire on his birthday and get $20.60 a month for the rest of his life; or If' married he would get $30.90 a month.

Just why the Iowa legislature should get all het up over a change like this and permit the present exorbitant, rate to ' stand against those paying the Iowa state ncome tax is a poser.
