LEGISLATIVE EXPENSE Minneapolis Journal: Iowa's legisltaure, assembled in special session, November 6 to pass a liquor control law and tax revision. Is still struggling. It has cost the taxpayers more than $200,000 to date, and is getting them further in the red at the rate of $3,000 a day. One house has passed a liquor bill; neither one has come near settlement of the tax Question. Minnesota had a special session for liquor control And emergency relief legislation, beginning December 5 and winding up January 8, at a total cost of $58,000. The Iowa situation is growing irksome, and there Is much complaint over legislative dawdling. Here in Minnesota we thought our legislature' was slow, but by comparison with Iowa it was a race horse. Legislators run pretty much the same, so what Is the reason for the slower progress down Des Moines way? This might be the reason: The Iowa members are receiving ten dollars a day for their special session work. Their regular pay is two thousand dollars for a two year term, the same as in Minnesota. The Minnesota members worked without pay this winter. They were In St. Paul at some personal sacrifice, therefore they worked hard and made compromises to reach results. It Is true that the Minnesota solons managed to eke out living expenses by voting themselves extra mileage *f doubtful legality, but even for those who accepted It, this honorarium was a mere bagatelle compared with ten dollars a day. It Is not necessary to say that Iowa men are prolonging their work deliberately. Consciously, they are mot loafing on the job. It Is that they do not have sufficient incentive for bringing their task to a head. To the members In Minnesota It was a hardship to spend *ve weeks In session without pay, but after all the general public is to be considered first. The general welfare te better served In Minnesota than In Iowa, and the little matter of per diem pay looks like the answer. j WATCHING THE LOOSE ENDS Government expenditures for recovery have been en- OITOOUS, and will continue to be for some time, under the Administration's plans. That recovery will cost money, and that the public will pay the bill, has been accepted as a fact, and the average citizen has not objected very strenuously to the spending. He asks only that real recovery be achieved; If it Is. he will gladly pay the bill. But along with the immense spending of the administration comes the fact that a public psychology of acceptance of the spending is also being developed. And If It develops too far, it will result in a public attitude which will make it mighty easy for state and local governments to get into the habit of prolific spending. The only safeguard that the citizens can have against the development of too many loose ends, Is to keep a personal, close watch on how and where the money \s spent. Recovery we must have; extravagance and graft we must not have. And he Is the best citizen of, all, who will raise his voice in an. honestly voiced protest against Anything that he terms extravagance. The great danger at the present moment, is that the millions being distributed will not be used honestly. A watch of the loose ends will help to prevent the disruption of a well- planned recovery program. I THE SUN SHONE BRIGHTLY— The sun shown brightly, Saturday—and in the high school auditorium, 1,000 happy persons gathered for one of the biggest annual meetings In county history. But the affair was more than the yearly gathering of patrons and friends of The Algona Cooperative Creamery. What a pleasure to have a community gathering of such size, exhibiting such good will. What a pleasure to attend a gathering where nothing but fellowship prevailed. After all the hard work, struggle, sacrifice, and conflict encountered In the dally pursuit of ekelng out an existence, what a pleasure it is to be able to enjoy, for A few brief moments, the spirit of friendliness. Abraham Lincoln's statement that "Peace of mind is the greatest treasure," was a sage observation. A man living In Spencer was robbed of his life savings In Chicago recently. They didn't leave him enough to get back to civilization. Running a business without advertising la like doing card tricks over the radio. You know what you are do- Ing, but not everybody else does. Why the sudden Interest around town in Yankton, South Dakota, ski meets? Quite a delegation went clear out to South Dakota to see the affair. Well bet the same group would think of a hundred excuses any cold morning as to why someone else Should go out on the back porch to get the milk . . . but Yankton, tush, tush, a mere stone's throw. Th« thing that bothers Is how much do they pay that audience that laughs at Eddie Cantor's stale Sunday night Jokes over the radio? A subscriber calls us to task for our alleged failure to report some of the cases brought into court, locally. So far as we know, all cases recorded with either the local J. p. courts or the mayor's court are printed. If we miss any, well be (tlad to hear about It anytime. Bill the Barber came Into the office Thursday morning, with an ad In his hand. He wanted it In last week's paper. When informed that the paper was already printed, he looked rather surprised and asked us if we printed on Tuesday nights, now. Why no, he was told, we print Wednesday and today Is Thursday. "My gosh," said Bill, "Where did I lose a day?" One Real Silk hosiery salesman Is a firm believer in signs ... he called on Mrs. Edythe Dalley In an effort to make a sale, and addressed her as "Miss Marigold." Herman Olson tells us he hasn't been to Renwick for ever a year ... he evidently referred to our anonymous remark about a bachelor going to Renwtck in last week's paper . . . well, DOC, if the shoe doesn't fit, dont put it on. Will Harris, our fartn editor, attended the annual creamery meeting, Saturday . . . after he had eaten his Ice cream he Is reported to have thrown the cardboard plate under the table, expecting a second helping . . . but Mrs. Oeigel had her eye on him, and his scheme went for naught (we won't vouch for the truth of this story). • • * Your correspondent made a personal survey of the opera company, recently, and wishes to report that "The Fortune Teller" is going to be a knockout ... we attempted to Join In the chorus numbers, but found the tenors were singing too high for us and the basses were singing too low . . . however Art Luk»nsmeyer and Alf Kresensky helped us out . . . one of the high spots of the performance will be when Ed Crenrich and Don Hutchins get to shouting and threatening each other (all in imsslc, of course) . . . it's all because they both plan on marrying Musette, as we got It ... a duel results, and if. shouW be worth the price of admission to see Ed and Don handle the swords . . . but when the chorus breaks In Victor Herbert's "Gypsy Love Song" you'll be transported far, far away, to a land where carefree festivity prevails, and nobody worried about 60 cent dollars ... we don't know exactly what you would call such a place but the Hungarians must have had a name for It. A silly lass should be pttt to rout, and keep out of our sight, Is she who continually ta'ks abont the date she had last night. A dog belonging to the White House bit a U. S. senator the other day. The senator then offered a bill muzzling all the dogs In Washington, D. C. On the other hand, there are some who would give a hearty vote to muzzle all senators. • • * Famous last line—Don't you think that hat is a trifle young for yon? \ OTHER EDITORS Providing: Jobs Highway Boys Forest City Summit: We wonder just how many of the legislators In the present special session will survive the coming elections when It becomes generally known that the "bond refunding law" carries an excess of three million dollars each year to be used by the highway commission? The highway commission was exceedingly fearful that its extensive organization of clerks and engineers would be out of a Job if this three million had not been Included In the "refunding" law. • • • Not Wholly Complimentary Winterset Madtsontan: When Al Smith refers to the president's reconstruction plans as "alphabet soup," it does seem that some of the republican boys might be less afraid to come out of their cyclone caves. • • • Business Men Have Troubles Humboldt Rpubllcan: Mark Sullivan charges that business men are under a spell of fright and are not buying in quantities that business conditions warrant. Perhaps this is true in larger centers, but it Is not true in small communities like Humboldt. The business men here are buying everything they can sell, though some of them do not seem to feel that they can sell mulch. Perhaps if they made greater purchases and made greater efforts to sell they could accomplish more. "Dick" Actually Smiled Fort Dodge Independent: Senator Dickinson of Algona attended the president's party for congressmen at other night. And actually smiled. At least that is what newspaper reports tell us. ODD THINGS AND NEW-By Lame Bode AT THE STATE CAPITAL THIS WEEK (By Rep. A. H.

In regard to the old age pension bill, which Is coming up at this session of our Iowa legislature, the question Is of;en asked, "How much more will It cost Jian taking care of the aged people in Jie usual way " An Investigation along this line made by Harry C. Evans In 1923 shows that at that time the Iowa State auditor's report for 1922 lists 21 poor farms, :ach having 10 or less Inmates. The nvestment In these 21 farms Is $808,'55.00 for the support of 133 paupers— ivcr $6,000 each. Humboldt county, which adjoins Kossuth on the south, cvotcs 160 acres, worth $65,000.00 to upport three inmates, investment of 21,667 per pauper. Nor does this farm iay expenses. The net cost per pau- jer as shown by the auditor's report s $1480.00 per year, $28.48 per week. Tie Interest on the Investment per in. mate at 5 per cent, is $1183.00 per year, dding this to the net cost of his keep, we have a total cost per Inmate per •car of $2563.00. to say nothing of the axes the county loses because it owns he farm. Humboldt's taxpayers would ave money if they would board their paupers at a hotel at $7.00 per day Carl Hutchins. Temporary _ Chairman, Presided Meeting at Irvlngton: About fifty or more assembled at the center school on last Wednesday evening for general information on the corn-hog plan. Carl dutchins, chairman of the township temporary committee presided at the meeting. Mr. Bonnstetter, county agent in a very satisfactory manner explained the entire situation In regard o the signing of contracts. The final ;lgn-up for Irvington will be held at he McGregor street school. For the north two tiers of Irvlngton township in January 30, the middle two tiers >n Feb. 1 and the lower two on Feb. nd. After the sign-up has been completed an election will be held to elect a permanent township committee of hree for the final checking. One of these three will be selected as chairman f the township committees. January 26th, 1934.—Ever since th'? special session convened Novtmber 6th, letters received at the State House indicate that there is a. great demand for an old age pension law. I received many letters of this nature and I wLsh to assure my readers that. I am in sympathy with such a measure. However, up to the preit-nt things do not appear very encouraging in regard to this proposition. The General Assembly has three bills before it for consideration, Housu Pile No. 73, House File No. 58, and Senate File No. 42. The histories of these bills are as follows: House Pile No. 58—By Teter. November 14th. introduced, referred to Ways and Mtans Committee. November 24th, Committee recommended indefinite postponement. Houie File Na. 73 By Donlon. November 15th, introduced, referred to Ways and Me.in.-i Committee. November 24th, CommitUe letoiimieuded indefinite postponement.

Tux ItcvUiuii The atmosphere- on tax revUon ha.» btsen clarified slightly siaix- wiitu:g my last weekly letter. Monuay naming the House decided to UJ:<. up me tax revision problem aud proceeded u> con- aider House Pile No. 1. The- iii-st step wits to amend the biil to coiilorm with Senate File No. 1 before it was displaced in the Senate by the Farm Bureau bill. The measure was lurther amended by Unking the provision which called for the Urmination of the- retail .sales tax December 31st, 1935. After adopting other corrective and minor amendments McFarlane moved to substitute the gross income tax bill for H. P. No. 1. Two days of debate defeated the substitute motion by a vote of GO to 44. Then Feller moved to substitute the Farm Bureau bill for House Pile No. 1 and alter two hours debate tins substitute motion was defeated by a vote of C2 to 44. Then the House po.si'-d House Pile No. 1 as amended by H vot*; of 90 to 13. House Pile No. 1 is the Interim Committee bill and includes a corporation tax, a net income tax and a retail sales tax. The Corporation tax provides for a two per cent net income tax ra'e on corporation organisations under the luWj of Iowa ajid upon every foreign ei.ipoj.u: in doing business in Iowa. Ii the ti.ide or bu:iiu.o of the corporation !., ".irriecl on entirely within the slate, tile lux w:l! br imposed on the ti.iire '• ; n.o.i;:c but. if such trade or biiiiiie^i j, Cjii:-d on partly within ;u,,i liie :,tate, the tax will i-ii that porrijii oi tin.- .[jnubl> ::Unlu.-d to th..i wUhin this state. llUt/L'ie Tax p.irtiy without bi- ii::pu-iti oi.l i.e: income n a.- tiaCv or bii--:i: Net 'I ho net. inei'iiie section, impirves a i per e. !;t tax oil tli.j ijrot $1.000, U per ten i on the .*.-cond thousand, 3 per tint o;i ;he third thousand, 4 per evil •-••i ihe Jijiirtii Sl.uuu and 5 per cent o.'i Uie- Jiith ti.u'dsaiid and all incomes in exc" .-»> uj Sa.000. An amendment wao o;iei<.<i which made tile rate step up lo 1U per cent on of $10,000 or over It was adopted buu later recon- iiuVrcd and defeated. My sympathies were with the last amendment and I voted for it. However, so much controversy developed that losing the entire bill became apparent and consequently I, as well as others who entertained similar views, assisted in voting down the amendment when it came up for reconsideration. Only 1 state (WisconsinI has higher ratis than is provided for in House Pile No. 1. Wisconsin rates, however, do not apply in the lower brackets. Hence the House Pile No. 1 rate scale will yield more revenue than any scale adopted by other states. This section of the bill also provides for exemptions but space will not permit me to dwell on them at this time. Retail Sales Tax The division dealing with the retail sales tax is imposed upon the gros receipts fiom all sales of tangible personal piop.rty. A believer in the principle of "Ability to Pay" cannot h»: very enthusiastic about a sales tax of any dc- tcnplion. I irankly admit that I do not like it. However, uhe gross incom tax bill and the Farm Bunau b.ll ar-j made up entirely of sales taxej and theieluie are more objectionable. In my jmiyiner.t only one ar;;un,ci!t :s .'.idvanc.d to ju:.li!y a sales tax. Ajjp^.r- i.:.tly in every community a certain ti.i.vj of people reside who p;-.y little ! or jiO taxe.,. Many of (hem an: v.:Uuig i :o ",ole lor uniie':'."),ary iinpro 1 ,in.viit., u:.d thereby incrL.ije the tax loj'l of itntrs who do bay taxes.

It U estimated that Koi.ue. Kile No. 1 will raise $20,000,0011. Tins together with the reduction of public expenditures should reduce property tax ab • out 40 per cent. Sincerely. A. H. liorin- stetter. ,^4», . . .j . ..,:%.'•• Oreeri eonnty has hfade an Investment of $13,344.00 for each pauper maintained at the poor farm. The farm of 240 fertile acres can not, or does not, support its 5 inmates. The same report shows that it cost $4218.36 a year, over and above receipts from the farm, or $843 per inmate, over $16.22 per week." From reports coming from scientific research made throughout the United States, we find that approximately 70 per cent of the dollar that Is contributed for the aged is used in salaries and expenses, while 30 per cent goes to the aged and decrepit. This is true of Iowa. The Des Moines Register of August 3, 1932, stated that "the maintenance of 4057 Inmates in Iowa county homes in 1930 required the total expenditure of $1,331,703.87." In a check up of the 26 states that have the old age pension law. from two coast states, two states adjoining Iowa, and two western states, a comparison of costs is shown below: Average Average Annual Annual Pension Cost of Poorhouse Care of Inmate California $725.28 $484.12 New York 302.88 405.59 Minnesota 192.36 631.86 Wlconsln 136.04 399 99 Idaho 13251 528.52 Wyoming 170.66 908.68 President Franklin D. Roosevelt says "Selfish and indifferent people shoulc no longer be favored by exemption from the burden we impose on the generous and charitable in providing for the care of those unable to suppori themselves in their old age. This Is common duty of all citizeas and should be borne under a wise and systematic plan by all taxpayers alike." Arthur Brisbane: "If the richest country in the world can't take care of poor worn out old people, at least as well as a decent man takes care of an old horse, there is something wrong with that richest country." From Colliers, "We're the richest country in the world, and yet, almost alone among the nations, we still herd our unfortunate old people into poor houses. That can't go on; age has rights of its own—to independent and decent comfort and to a home." The United State Chamber of Commerce at its annual convention in 1932 adopted a favorable report on old age pensions. The Iowa democratic administration pledged its. support to Old Age Pensions in this special session of the Iowa legislature.—F. A. Corey, Former Lotto Creek Man Dead in St. Paul Ed.
