Beginning With the pension system inaugurated In Montana in 1939, twety-flve states—AWzona, lOalSTomte, Ooferack* Delaware, Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Oregon Utah, Washington. West •Vtrglni*, Wisconsin •ad Wyoming and the Territories of Alaska and Hawaii have now placed old-age security laws on their statute books, In thirteen states the pensionable age Is set at seventy yean. Twelve Mates pay pensions at the age of sixty- flve. North Dakota seta the s*e at sixty-eight years, while in Alaska (he age is sixty-five for men and sixty for women. The maximum pensions allowed are $150.00 per year in North Dakota, $15.00 a month in Hawaii and Indiana, $20.00 per month in Nebraska, $350.00 a year in Kentucky, $25.00 monthly in Delaware, Idaho, Montana «nd Utah, $30.00 a month In Arizona. California, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon. Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Alaska pays $35.00 per month to men and $45.CO to women. The average pension allowed in the above states is $33.50. Iowa's pension, which has just passed the house, la $3.60 above the average. This bill Is said to be the most popular bill that has been passed by the legislature this year, and Senator Patterson and Representative Bonnstetter are receiving much praise from their friends in this community for the good work they have done in supporting and working for this bill. NRA DANGER SIGNALS A ahowndown of the NRA plans and methods is on its way. As a great social and economic experiment It has had no equal In the United States history. And It is not going to be accepted permanently without a great many improvements. It Is an accepted fact by a majority of persons who have the idealistic conception of a great civilization, with less hours of work, and a greater dlstrlbuton of •wealth to the masses, that the fundamental principles of the NBA are sound, even though they are a trifle socialistic. Something along this line must be done. But Where are also some definite weaknesses that have shown up. The small busniess man Is going to feel the pinch aplenty. Ijarge Industries have been operating in such a way that they could throw people out of work and still maintain the margin of profit which they desired. Small businesses cannot do that. If their business falls off, they can reduce the help a trifle, but not much. Now, if they are forced to add new employees and pay higher wages, they must certainly have a quick and definite increase in their volume to make things go. And the question Is, will they get It? We hope so. Compliance boards have been found in some cases to contain men who are not themselves carrying out the provisions to which they agreed. Something must be done about that. The fundamental ideas of the NRA are those to which the masses will subscribe—and President Roosevelt said honestly that his administration was endeavoring to promote a policy of "the greatest good tor the greatest number"—but there are many details that have, yet to be ironed out, and chief among them la the question of how the little business man can operate under the same rules as a big business or corporation. odds and ends WHY NO CRIME DECREASE? The Sibley, Iowa, Gaaette had an Interesting editorial last week which called attention to the fact that repeal of the 18th amendment had net resulted in a decrease in crime. And that if anything, crime seems to be on the increase. No, the repeal of prohibition has not resulted in a decrease of all crime. It has eliminated one profitable .Bounce of revenue, however, for the criminal. Now, Vrnony who before had been hi the liquor business, seem to have turned toward kidnapping, slot machines and other new rackets, which carry a minimum of danger, in comparison with robbing a bank or holding up bank messengers. What are we going to do about it? Anybody who could answer that question would be a •welcome vteitoi in any police headquarters (provided the department Is not in league with one gang or another) or In Washington at the U. 8. attorney general's office. But several things are obvious. There must be an increased efficiency on the part of police and oflher lav enforcement and crime apprehension agencies. This means obtaining trained men, equipping them, with the latest Inventions in guns and radios and means of rapid communication, and organizing the officers of the law so that they can work harmoniously and rapidly. It means weeding out the political setup which effects so many agencies of law enforcement. When men think of votes, they have less time to think of ways and means to combat crime. It means swift justice when guilty ones are caught. Had DlUlnger been put to trial, and then to death, within a few days after his capture (assuming that he would have been found guilty) one of the greatest biota on U. 8. public officials would never have occurred. One of the big shocks to the general public has been the fatal mishaps that followed the army's taking over of the airmail. If peacetime flying will do that to the army, what would combat with an enemy have resulted in? Don't forget the words of General Mitchell, who several years ago said that our air force would never amount to much until we had a separate department of air defense, along with the army and navy departments. Writers describe the new King of Belgium as a fine, straight young man. He must be straight. They made a ruler out of him. (Terrible, isn't It?) A good nomination for something or other would be Princess Mdvinanl, heiress to the WoolworUi fortune, who has stated that a girl must spend 180,000 a- year to keep her health. That will be interesting news to many Kossuth county women, especially the pioneer ones, who are enjoying good health daring advanced years, and have a lifetime of hard work and honest living behind them. A local young lady was heard to remark that she wondered if those bank bandits at Sioux Falls who waited for their three girl hostages to put on their coats would also allow them to powder their noses. Doc Sawyer has a new Joke. Page Uie absent-minded professor. H. D. Clapsaddle went in to get a shave. The passersby enjoyed the radio program coming from his car, and which he had failed to turn off. Local restaurants noticed many new customers one evening last week, but it was all cleared up when we found the P. E. O.'s were having a big meeting. There was a general male exodus from home at the supper hour, therefor. STORY OF THE WEEK In a negro school near Danville, Va., one boy was GO black they called him "Midnight.". It semes that an was well until a new pupil only a few shades lighter than "Midnight" entered the school. On being called his nickname "Midnight" by the new pupil, the black one answered: "LUsen Heahl Don* yo' call me no Midnight. To's "bout half-past Teven yo'self." Maybe tbia happened . . . anyway the story tees that a local mother was lecturing her daughter on coming In at midnight, ancf told tb« young laxly that when BOB was a girl she had to be hi bed at 9 o'clock every night. The daughter replied that she must have had a very narrow-minded mother, whereupon the local mother unthinkingly replied, "I had a better mother than you have, anyway. A local doctor was talking about a patient who owed him $20. A friend asked him if the debtor wouldn't pay him. The doctor replied, "Pay met Why he won't even worry about it." V • • A style report says that buttonless coats will be the hot stuff for men this spring. A bachelor might add that the idea la not new. Anyway that investigation in Washington is bringing out a lot of plane talk, isn't it? Rudy Vallee makes a quarter of a million dollars a year, which leads a city paper to remark that "prosperity is right around the crooner." Famous last line—Does somebody hear a ringing? Many marriages fail because they are flip-flops. Shu's a flip and he's a flop.

About sixty friends Joined in for the celebration and an impromptu program of talks and songs which was greatly enjoyed during the course of the afternoon.
