LOANS Badger Man Wants Receivership for Ft. Dodge & Eagle Grove Ass'ns The Federal Land Bank at Omaha and the farm loan associations through which its loans are obtained by farmers, was attacked by Arthur Arent of Badger, Iowa, in a speech at the Court House In Fort Dodge last week. In his speech he said that he would ask for receiverships for the Fort Dodge and Eagle Grove associations. Mr. Arent's story was that he had borrowed $16,600 and had to make a stock subscription of $850. His understanding was that when he paid his loan in full he would be given credit for the stock which would be turned in. Instead he was refused credit and retirement on his stock and told that he in fact had guaranteed the payment of all farm loans by his stock subscription.

WEST BEND NEWS •Returnable containers," words specifically defined in the sales tax law, mean nothing to some of Algona's merchants. They charge, and lose business by doing so, tax on sales which net ten cents. For example, a customer buys two coca colas to tuke out; the gross sale amounts to twenty cents, ten cents for the coke and ten cents deposit on the bottles; when the bottles are returned the customer receives ten cents back leaving the net purchase of ten cents; the merchant charging sales tax or twenty-one cents for the gross sale is receiving a ten percent sales tax and is not following the law. And that is why certain sales have dropped off at those who insist on a penny. Mrs. Carrie Bourrett and Mrs. Ben Walker entertained a number of ladies at a tea Thursday afternoon.
