HEBE'S WAY TO CUT TAXES Taxpayers would welcome a cut in their tax burden. Well, why not do something about it? Figures recently released show that the total number of Inmates in state institutions has increased again. This has been going on for years. Additions to present buildings and the construction of entirely new ones cannot cope with the Increase. And what are we doing about It? Nothing. One could reasonably ask, -what can we do about It? And In the day's mall cornea a postcard from Columbia ... one of those cards where you put in marks to Indicate "Hello", and this burg Is a "Swell Joint." etc., etc. The only trouble Is that n<obody here seems to know who W.

And It would seem that the musical group which broadcasts under the name of the "Rhythm Club" is not, the only rhythm organization in the country. which to community has samples of poor families with no means of support, who have children as fast as nature will allow. Mentally Incompetent persons have no restrictions placed on them. They can marry and produce a dozen of their kind, who to a few years are ready for state: institutions or Jails. If we hope to cut the expense of maintaining state institutions, we must get at he basic fact, that too many Incompetents marry and reproduce. Until we do something about that, their number will increase, we must build more hospitals and institutions, and our tax load will get heavier for maintaining them year in and year out.

The Algona Building & Loanf Ais'n Liquor Stores for Temperance Ringsted Dispatch: "The bootlegger mutt be driven from Iowa." That was Iowa's order at the polls more than a year ago. Prohibition-repeal was demanded. Taking the electorate at its word, the special legislative session passed what it, thought was a logical form of liquor control. . The Iowa Liquor Commission, in turn taking the legislature at its word, has set about to do what was demanded— get rid of the bootlegger by an Intelligent distribution of intoxicants. Not surprising then was the recent appearance of some neatly printed black and white placards in the state liquor stores. "Temperance is the only solution of the liquor problem," said one of them. Another declared: "We don't want your grocer's monty," harking back to the old saloon days when the Saturday pay check went too often Into the saloon " running the fences at the rear of his home.

Public opinion and support, after the advent of advertising a. mtans of support for newspapers, turned against the nrebrand who could find nothing to writ* about except the misdeeds of eonnbody else and make editorial comment. In a way we sympathize with those souls, most of whom have departed. They spoke their minds, and let the chips fall where they may.
