It ib only employers and employes who are taxe|d for old age pensions, and only employers of eight or more persons for the unemployment tax. Farmers and farm help are exempted also domestics and their employers. And,| of course, everybody who employs no one escapes both taxes. It! thus comes about thai most people have practically no knowledge of the fact that every Employer and every employe now have lo pay An old age tax on every pay day, and every employer of more than eight has to pay another 1 tax. In the course of a year these taxes are burdensome, particularly oa employers, who jhave.tc- pay them on every employe, whereas employes escape the unemployment tax altogether and each employe pays the old age tax only for himself. And in due time em- ployep get the money back; for employers it is an added irrecoverable exipense. Mo»t people are also unaware that to many smaN, employers on or near the border line as regards net profits the taxes either cut the profits below a reasonable minimum or actually create a deficit. Most large employers are in a position to protect themselves. But the little fellows often are helpless. What the taxes mean to "small business" was recently illustrated in a'discussion presented by F. C. Eslick, Mason City, via radio .station KGLO. Mr. Eslick is president of a •storage and transfer company at Mason City, and the company has to pay both taxes. Some 43 p«|r cent oE the company's expense is for labor, and at 4 per cent for the two taxes the company must this year pay around ?1200 into the two funds out of gross receipts approximating- $75,000. ' .*;* tfRP One of the harsh peculiarities connected with these taxes is that they have to be paid, profit or no profit, surplus or deficit. Like many and many another business in the last few years, Mr. Eslick's company has had a difficult time of it to make income equal outgo. In no recent year has there been a decent profiii, and in some years there have been deficits H Thus the new taxes are a well nigh crushing burden. This, however, is the story of practically all "small business." Notwithstanding the showing in the case of his own business, Mr. Eslick did not take to the air to discuss whether the so-called social security acts were wise in principle. He may entertain doubts of their desirability, probably does, but for the purposes of his address he waived them and accepted the principle. He even conceded that, granting the principle of the unemployment tax, Industry should be burdened with it; but on the old age tax, Chough granting the principle ot support, he had a kick coming on the incidence (that is, on who pays), and he vigorously expressed it. Industry and employment are inseparably linked together, each growing out of the other, and for that reason industry, the principl of thiji unemployment tax granted, should bear it; 'but old age is universal, it is not a produc of industry, bears no relation to it, and no tax on industry alone in support of old age is logically defensible. If there must be a tax to that (fnd the only fair tax is a general tax levied against all the people according to ability to pay. This is Mr. Eslick's position. To state this principle is practically to com pel admission of its truth. It sounds like an axiorn in taxation, and scholastically rephras ed it would be. Levying this tax on industry alone is utterly indefensible; worse, it is highway i;ax robbery . . . But alas! What are axioms i(u taxation between politicians? Farmer: and Ifibor have many votes; industry has few Industry, particularly small industry, had better g<f on home and forget its picked pockets The "police" hear only loud voices. orously denouncing the Washington tendetcy towards centralization of power. This was no new doctrine in American government. Our system was built on maintenance of the rights of the states, and resistance to federal encroachment. The doctrine has always been, and still remains — at least theoretically—that the federal government is one of only limited powers, that the states retain all other powers, and that the people retain every power not'granted to either" state or federal government. • The defense of state government and the warning against federal encroachment was no new thing coming out of Albany in* the voice of a governor. As governor of New York Franklin D. Roosevelt defiantly announced precisely the same doctrine in radioed addresses. Mr. Roosevelt even went so far as to declare in measured terms that agriculture was no concern of the Washington government. Mr. Roosevelt reneged when he advanced to Washington, but the principle he abandoned remains and It will be a sorry day for Americans 1C they, too, ever abandon it. For the principle has compelling sound reason behind it. The voice of the weak can be heard in state legislatures when it is not even a whisper in congress. Mr. Eslick and others in Iowa in the same boat might get help from Des Moines, but their voices cannot carry as far as Washington. This illustrates the desperate need of Americans today to keep constantly in mind and jealously guard the principle of separation cf powers between the federal and state governments. That this involves constant nice balancing is all the more reason why it should be done, for the liberties of the people and the effective correction of governmental abuses depend on it.

Reliefers Biting the Hands that Feed Them WPA labor has heretofore received the-prevailing rate of pay for independent labor, though hours were restricted. Thoughtful observers have always questioned this policy. The trouble with it is that too many pe.iple lack the ambition and industry to try to do better. If they can get even a hare living out of WPA they are content to make it a career. The question what to do is now acutely before the country again. Congress lately required more hours for the same pay, and WPA la'bor, influenced by the labor unions, has struck. This is no distant thing, even for lowans. There is such a strike as near as Fort Dodge. When people on what amounts to a dole at the expense of others pull strikes against attempts to make them get busy In their own behalf it is time that the whole business of relief in this country be restudied and the laws revised and rigidly enforced to provld* only for actual and unavoidable need.

In the Scandinavian countries there is the same kind of a drive There is one vital difference, In Prance Quantity is desired, while the northmen want quality. France wants more prospective soldiers, and must have them whether the intelligence is great or not. In this country there are not enough babies born in the great middle class. Too ' many are born in the poorer class, and too few in the upper. The added the poorer classes help keep down.

Hunter In the Webster City Freeman, babies in that class record, tout he Timely Topics Rather newsworthy, if nothing else, was the report the other day that the Wisconsin house of representatives had by a 54-36 vote called for the resignation of Secretary Wallace. Probably the demand was motivated by the dairy interests, strong in that state. Dairymen have claimed that they have been pretty much ignored in the Wallace agricultural programs. General Johnson, now a columnist, still master of striking phraseology, pulled another in that line the other day, when he said: "The principal punch behind the third-term ballyhoo of the White House .palace guard is the slogan, "We haven't got anybody but got the ]j-<et Us Jealously Guard State Rights What is here said is related to today's lead editorial on the old age tax against industry. Thaf editorial shows that industry, particularly small industry, at least as regards a large section of it, is unfairly burdened toy the old age security tax. The editorial concludes somewhat pessimistically that industry's voice, particularly small industry's, is too weak to be heard at Washington The thought suggests another of vital interest in present-day government in America: that federal government is expanding today at the espense of the states and that this expansion constitutes a threat to the ability of the people to get a hearing on, wrongs. At the recent conference of governors at Albany, :«J. Y., GoverAQt JR. E. Baldwin, of Connection t, broke a conference tradition against introduction of controversiai subjects by vig- Roosevelt, and the republicans haven't anybody at all." Which isn't far from truth. An impression grows that the third term movement is not developing in the degree hoped for by its sponsors. Announcements of support have not been remarkable in number, and of such as there have been suspicions of self-interest exist, as in the case of Governor Kraschel, who, it has been reported, is maneuvering for a jab as director of the census. Prank Kent claims that to date only seven senators have plumped for a third term and that every one of them has an ax to grind. Nomination for the vice presidency on~~a third term ticket was dangled before Senator Wheeler, of Montana, it is said, and he not only refused the bait, but gave the third termers the K. O. by saying flatly that he was against a third term for anybody. Probably ke knows well enough that if he is to be on a "residential ticket at all his place is at the to*. . . . .. Maybe there won't be a war in Europe after all. Some signs seem to indicate that Messrs. Hitler and Mussolini are not so hot for it as their belligerent speeches suggest. The Los Angeles Times puts it rather patly: sandwiched between the dictators' cries of "Let us at 'em!" is the aside, "Hold us back boys: hold us back!" And perhaps the Japs sub rosa echoing the refrain in their fashion are own The politically reorganized state liquor commission has announced an aippolntment-to- jobs policy of a "fair" division between parties. I his is all right as regards appointments not conditioned on political dismissals nut illegal otherwise, since the law provides that dismissals must be for cause "deemed by the commission in its discretion as "sufficient," which in plain American means for real cause, not for a partisan reason. Mr. Roosevelt is reported angling for a lower income tax base. In other words, he would cut the exemptions, which are now $1,000 for single persons not maintaining homes and •?2,500 for home maintainers. This is the soundest idea the president has espoused. Regardless of how much revenue it would produce, it would be highly worth while as a means of educating a great segment of the American people in the science of taxation and the effects' of public spending. By all means cut the base to the limit. Write your congressman and senator today! A POLICE CHIEF in West Virginia is also a pastor. He'll reform youngsters by making them go to church.. The idea is O. K. if the youngsters are not "sentenced" to church Compulsion doesn't work very well, even in religion. One Kossuth youngster recently in trouble had a good church didn't have enough to do on .week-days. **••'• A COUPLE of fellows taking a drink one night recently in the alley between the' Advance and the postoffice came near to being panicked. It seems they chose a spot between the old Call theatre and the Iowa theatre. The two tiplers were just uncorking when the loud-speakers on the Iowa movie screen crashed through witk a typical gangster scene, including shooting and a muffled scream. Sounded for all the world like it was real stuff, so the pair reported. The strong support President Roosevelt Is getting and the bitter opposition the suggestion of a .thirdj term is, encountering recall *how" insincere many leading politicians are when it comes to the .consideration * of; such.! questions. The Freeman-ilournal recalia that there was widespread demand for Theodore Roosevelt to be candidate to succeed himself in 1908. Senator Robert M. 'LaFollette Sr. was a leader for Roosevelt and many other republicans and not a few democrats were for him. In 1912 Senator Johnson, of California, was on the ticket with Roosevelt for a third term and Alfred M. Landon and many other republicans vigorously opposed to a third term supported Roosevelt. Many leading democrats now in favor of a third term for Franklin D. Roosevelt were bitterly opposed to third terms when there was talk of nominating Coolldge in' 1928, and 16 democrats in the senate voted lor a. resolution condemning third terms at that time. It seems to depend much upon whose ox is gored .whether prominent politicians are for or against third terms. ^ji! the Dubuque Telegraph-Herald the other day contained an editorial which shows how politicians are. swaj»d. by pollticah,t>rejudlce8 anent.'third terms for presidents, as follows: ?. The lowas PBderatioh'vof vLabor adds its voice to the others resolving in favor of a third term for President Roosevelt. Harry Hopkins, speaking in .^Grjnnejl,. said that the president would control; the democratic convention, even though he may not actually be a candidate for renomlnatldn. All this talk makes ua wonder, what is running around in the minds of those democrats who so vigorously denounced third terms back in 1928, when the republicans were in the saddle. We wonder what Senator LaFollette thinks about it now. It was his resolution that was adopted by the senate by a vote of 56 to 26. The resolution stated that any departure from the opposed to a third'term only'on personal grounds* not on principle. Senator Borah believed that Wash- i n g t o n would have run for a third time In ,1796 If ,„ affairs -,h.ad been as critical as in 1792. Borah said also that If Coolidge had chosen to run again, the republican na- 'tlohal"c6Wve^fton "ot ' 1928 would undoubtedly " have 'frenbtninated him, almost unanimously. The Idahoan admitted: "If Lincoln's first term had been a second term, and 1 Bad been living," t wouid-have voted for 1 Lincoln for a third, term." ', One , strong, supporter o* President Roosevelt in 1939, who voted to condemn a third term in 1928', was Senator McKellar. He thought! there existed a very strong and deep feeling among patriotic citizens that it would not be wise for any president to serve longer than , Washington had served. Another who voted for the 1928 resolution was Senator fiarkley, now majority leader of. the senate.

The democrats voted 40 to 4 for the resolution; the republicans, 24 to 20 against it.

KOSSUTH CORN looks bumperish There is now so much hy-lbrid seed planted that "knee-high by the Fourth" doesn't mean much.' Who said farmers are dumb—besides that man Curtis (if he did say it). The farmer gets paid for reducing acreage in the hope it will decrease the crop, and hence raise the price. Mr Farmer, being more cagey than democratic politicians figured, merely buys hybrid corn, plants it on the reduced acreage, and harvests a bigger crop without as much work.
