The plan calls for starting payment of old- age benefits on .the first day of next year instead of waiting two years longer, and benefits are to be liberalized. Benefits for widows and orphans are proposed. However, the Increase In the payroll tax, also scheduled for next year, Is to.be delayed until 1943. Congress Is apparently convinced that the principle of a large reserve fund, salient fea^ ture 'of the fact as originally enacted,-is Unsound.

Next year it is estimated I that the fund, will spend $88,000,00.0 in benefits. Five years from now it will spend $713,000,000—and 20 years from now, $2,500,000,000. The experts figure that income will more than meet outgo until 1955. Then outgo will take] the upper hand, and the start to shrink.

Figures on Working for the Government The typical motor vehicle operator in Iowa Is now working 9.1 days every year just to Pay his federal, state and local automobile .taxes, H. C. Wurster, chairman of the Iowa Petroleum Industries committee asserts Hi- statement was made after study of official 1938 motor vehicle tax figures just released. "Last year the average tax paid by the 740,021 vehicles registered in this state amounted to $45.62 each," he said. "Based on the income of $30 a week or less, which the federal government reports the typical motorist has, this means it is necessary for most motor vehicle operators to wrok 9.1 days and devote the entire proceeds toward payment of their annual motor vehicle tax bill," The figures also show that automobiles in "Barney" Allen, state old age pension su-l perintendent who "got the ax" in the recent reorganization upset, "had it coming." He was an apostate republican, and as politics goes the present administration owed him nothing. The squawk to which he gave utterance on being dismissed ill became him. Sensible Ray Sperbeck remarks that Iowa | children do, not seem to be in such dire need of a federal appropriation as Senator Herring's fulmiuations against Governor Wilson suggest. Another editor remarks patly that if ting. * • • • • SATURDAY AFTERNOOJf a flock or covey or something like that composed of an even dozen planes flew in formation high in the sky from southwest to northeast over Kossuth county.

There were bombs to fear. • • • * • DOJPT UK." You bet they don't no later. It is at times like this that my thoughts wander back to the old Call, and I feel again the spell of that dear old theater. There are only a few—such a very few— events in our fitful Hves that real- I ly make an indelible Impression on our feeble minds. Some have to do with personalities, people who have played brief roles in our theater of the world and have passed to their reward; others concern things, emotions. Of the more material memories which still cling tenaciously to crevices In my brain none is more poignant than those which surround the old Call. The 'Call was more than a structure of brick and stone, more than just a theater or place of amusement; and while it will never Influence civilization, as the older ruins in Greece or Italy did, it had a definite and 'conscious effect on the life and morals o. this small community. And what Is more important to me it will probably continue to recall to the mind of this individual more varied emotions than any other building in the world. And this leads me .to the issue towards which I have been heading alt this time, that during the summer, in those now almost for- ottett days of the glory that was the Call's, interest and enthusiasm __-„»,.. ^. uu . »».u £*(n,i f I lie* I, HI — "i-i, LUG J UULt W • ..

The trouble there is "Downstate" vs. Chicago. If redistricting were done Chicago would be in control. Iowa was redistricted senatorially in 1911, but there has been no redistricting in Illinois since 1901—3S years ago and after three censuses. Senator Herring emitted another squawk that did not become him when his son was let out of a statehouse joo. This newspaper is against the patronage system, tout it's still the political custom, and Senator Herring, who as Kovernor took full advantage of it, is certainly in no position to complain now that the shoe is on the other foot.

PRIZE FIGHTING has assumed some importance in many Iowa circles, as witness the Paycheck bout last night. Then there is the Louis-Two-Ton Tony scrap tomorrow night in- New York. Though Two- Ton .isn't given a ghost of a chance by the experts there is many a secret hope he'll land a haymaker that will put Louis to sleep for at least the 10 required seconds. Two-Ton has a crowd appeal that Louis lacks. And crowd appeal is important to get the money at the gate. And if the impossible happens it will be good for the fistic industry. ***** FRIDAY IS THE last day for using 1939 liquor books.

There are some good features about the proposal— the best being that communities getting PWA aid would have to pay it all back in the future— the money being a loan, and not an outright gift. But otherwise the proposal is a collection of spending ideas which the administration has tried to put over on congress and failed to get through. ***** WATCH HITLER seize Danzig when the English are busy telling off the Japs about the concession business in China.

After all these ruminations, perhaps it will be quite unnecessary even to mention Juarez, but since I have used all the' .foregoing verbiage, as an introduction to my humble .remarks about the picture, I should say something. Personally, quite contrary to all critics and most intelligent people, I found Juarez dull and uninteresting. ' Time (the newsmagazine) comments that the picture's central Idea, Democracy, holds the rather disjointed whole together, but I did not find- this to be the case. I thought the aimless production was constantly- wandering about In a daze, not quite sure whether it was on the right track. :But perhaps Juarez Is too heavy fodder for dog-days, so I'll admit, I missed the fine points. But I did find myself constantly trying to weave the separate storJes of Juarez and Maxmilian into some definite pattern, but never quite succeeded. And I found the theme of democracy a little fragile, perhaps. Of course I'll have to admit that the acting of the principals was superb; that Paul Muni, Bette Devis, and Brian Aherne, not to men- Ion the Incomparable Claude ^alns, gave outstanding performances; and that the picture was expertly directed and faultlessly staged, with sweep and finesse, but the fact remains that I have seen many movies that I enjoyed more. The text may be summed up into this single sentence: 'When a monarch misrules, he changes the people; when a president misrules, the people change him."

Believe it or not, this newspaper office for the year 1938, paid a total of . f 1,046.36 into ment jackpot. Of this amount, our employes kicked in $254.25 and the office matched it with $254.25. That, in theory but not practice, goes foi so-called social security. In addition, this office was stuck $537.86 for the unemployment insurance end of the social security act. That's because we employ eight or more people. We pay a special penalty for thus doing our small bit In the way of relieving unemployment. That amount added to the $252.25 that we du& up to match the levy on salaries of our employes means that this office paid JT92.11 In addition to the sther taxes thaj the concern in business has to meet these new deal times. Now what is being done with our money, contributed under the high sounding name of "social security?" No one knows. The exact status of the "social security fund" does not exist, except on paper The government takes in hundreds of millions annually to guarantee .he future payment of old age >ensions and unemployment insurance. It spends the money as it is •eceived and merely puts "I. O U.'s" in the fund for the sums received. When the time comes to make payment on a large scale, the administration then in power will have a tough job satisfying social security claimants with the stock out into international situations where the dictators can make our country look foolish. It would be far better to mind our own business and keep our f "I. 0. consists. U.'s" of which the fund MIND ODB OWN BUSINESS.
