OFFICIAL Cl'l'k AND OOTTNTT Be* jfflottug HISTORICAL DEFT. 1-1-37 LARGEST CIRCULATION IN KOSSUTH Established 1865 17 GIVE VIEWS ON 6.0. P. CHOICE FOR NOMINEES Opinion Divides In Sur vey Among Business- Men, Fanners "Steer off the rocks with Landon and Knox"—That's the new republican campaign slogan. And because of the great interest In the recent republican national convention, and its unanimous nomination of candidates, the Algona Upper Des Moines' Inquiring Reporter picked the following persons at random, Saturday afternoon, and asked them what they thought of the republican nominees. Here are the answers: C. B. Mnrhish, state comptroller and Security State Bank president: "The convention probably picked its strongest candidate. Landon may be able to get the solid backing of all former republicans, but It remains to be seen." P. J. CbriBtemeii, of Christensen Bros, department store: "I will not express my opinion in public." t» >. Hansen, farmer: "I think Roosevelt will get it again." Dr. Walter Fraser: "The republican nominees are very good." O. D. Brundage, shoe man: "We have been wanting a mid-western candidate for a long time, and now we have one who is a progressive." George Yeoman, mechanic: "Finest thing that ever was." R»y Fetters, bartender: "Can't see the G. O. P.'B." I* C. Oust, farmer: "They're the right men." B. W. Caldwell, clothing man: '-I am a Democrat. It wouldn't do for me to criticize the other party." J«e Bloom, Coast to Coast store: "The republicans made a veHy good selection of candidates at their convention in Cleveland, but sincerely, I think that both of them are four years ahead of their time as a progressive republican." Milton Dahl, Kossuth Radio Co.: "What difference does it make what I think of them, they're already nominated." C. E. Kollasch, farmer: "They've done very well, picked as good men as they could find." John Boos, LuVerne: "There were no strong men to be nominated, so the men In the east threw it to the mid-west to put up a man. L. J. Dickinson was very wise to keep out of It." H. N. Kruse, insurance man: «9QUrl? well satisfied. Would rather have seen Lowdon and Landon than Landon and Knox." H. C, Ilargreaves, oil man: "They made a right good choice." I* A. Copp, Dally Reminder: "Unless they have a farm plank that the farmer thinks Is better than the one that he has at the present time, so that they can swing the middle west, it Is doubtful If we will see a change this fall, as the border states will be the politic-ill battlefield. Look for close election." O, D. Shurmvny, lawyer: "As happy a choice as could have been made. The best thing about it Is that young progressives of the prairie states seem to have gained control of the G. O. -P." July 1 Deadline On Old Age Tax July first is the deadline for paying old age assistance taxes, County Treasurer M. J. Duffy reminded, Monday. The tax is $2 per person and payable at the treasurer's office, Bbuployers, under the provisions of the act, are held liable for payment of the tax by their employees. There is a penalty attached to delinquencies, and a lot of provisos that a Philadelphia lawyer would have trouble in understanding. Best way out seems to be to pay the tax and not inquire into its whys and wherefores teo deeply. ALQONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, JUNE l«,'l9;Ui Contestants Going Strong In Texas Centennial Trip Contest; 6 Week Remain Postoffice Bids Called June 20 A wire from Senator Louis .1. Murphy, received by I* E.
