TjButS MEANS YOU! At Des Molnes the state legislature Is compll- r a state social security law which will meet federal approval, and Insure this state of participating In the entire program of benefits when they begin to arrive In future years. If the state legislature cuts down the minimum t, Dumber of employes, set at 8 by the federal program at present, it will work a rank Injustice on ft boat of small employers who alone will suffer *' by an added, and unjtut tax. Every employer, un• " der the present setup, pay* part of the old age , pension tax. The employer matches with an equal sum the money his employee* pay Into the fund. •' That i* fair and just, and a long-range effort to . prevent economic woes to employees when they get beyond the age of doing active duty. But the federal plan at present exempts em- p|*yers of under eight people from paying the un- attployment Insurance tax. The state can, however, tfttact a law cutting down that minimum number •ft? employees, and making nearly every employer pay an unemployment insurance tax, which the employee doe* not participate In paying. Ilia theory is simply this. In the past, large employers hired men by the score during good times, and when things slacked down threw them out of employment That, in short, creates unemployment problems all along the line. BUT, •mall merchant* do not operate that way. They hire three, four, five or six employees, and for the most part continue with that same number during tbe up* and downs of business cycle*. They stand to benefit when things are going good, and stand tb« *bock when slack period* occur. Big business, the automobile plants for example, simply guage tbe number of employees they have to the demand Oat exi*IU for their car*. They can hire thousand* from the rank* of labor when they need them and turn them out to shift for themselves when demand decline*. Small muine** seldom doe* now the up and coming citizens of the town are looking for some more. Among other suggestions It Is proposed the government fork over funds to help build an airport. Then the city could use a gales pavilion. Moreover, the government will be Mked to "put" again on the Muscle Shoals project. Perhaps in the active mind* of forward-looking BsthervllHans there are other proposals such as a home for foundling pigeons, a race cours< for trained fleas, or a playground for gamboling It' Is not our purpose to offend the civic dignity or energy of the citizens of Estherville. By their good works they are known near and far. The town Is no better nor no worse concerning government money than countless other go-getting municipalities over the country. But the subject Is worth a bit of eyebrow- lifting at least. It Is to be remembered when any city gets a grant, the money Is not coming from "the government." It Is coming from "we, the people." The time Is near at hand when this farce of getting federal money In the name of emergency relief Is ended. Let the cities care for their unfortunates as humane people always have. Then, let them tell their moochers to go to work like honest, sturdy men always have. • * » Steal IIMMMXX) 0«t 2 Years, Steal Calf Get 10 Year* Whlttemore: The Inconsistency of Justice was again demonstrated last week when flve men were sentenced at Fort Dodge to two years Imprisonment and a fine of $10,000 each for stealing $300,000. The newspapers carried a story the name day of a man at Independence, Iowa, who was sentenced to 10 years In the penitentiary for stealing « calf. The motto would seem to be "If you are golne to be a rrook, be a big one—the more you steal the lighter the penalty." j The Algona Upper Peg Moinei, Algon^, Iowa, Pee. 22,1936 It Is not fair, therefore, that the small business abould be forced to stand the coat of unfortunate situations created by large industries. And the Blatter resta in the hands of the legislature. THIS QUESTION WILL EFFECT EVERY RESIDENT OF THE STATE FOR MANY YEARS TO COME. THIS MEANS YOU! A BIT HABD TO UNDERSTAND Last week a charge of driving a car while Intoxicated was dismissed against a Swea City man, on the technical point that there was no proof {•rubbed that the accused waa driving the car, in wfeteh three men war* riding, at the time it crashed into another machine, August 0, and crushed the skull of a small baby.' -.*,. , There may be circumstaneaa stout tie «a«e aot "iuute public, but If three mm WMV In Uw machine, Md U Ultra waa any negligence- on the part of the driver of the car, then one of the three must have guilty of that negligence, whether it was the \ or not The entire thing bolls down to the dismissal of * criminal action under a technicality, and the final outcome In no way changes the fact that some one was driving a car which crashed Into another machine, and that a baby died as a result of injuries. If the Kossuth Safety Council Is looking for a good point at which to start action toward safer driving, it might take a definite Interest in the court cases connected with driving charges, of which we have had plenty in Kosmitb, and not enough action taken in any of them. "Blub-Oub" Blue Earth Post: The society section of a Twin City paper prints a large picture of a matron under the heading, "Plan* Oyp»y Tea." There I* much difference between the metropolitan and the crossroad* paper, but we believe that ultimately one I* run about a* intelligently as the other. Certainly tbe crossroads paper doesn't run a picture of a housewife under the heading, "Plans to Wash Monday." Or what 1* a gyp*y tea? W« haven't tbe slightest Idea, except It sound* like something tbe husband should avoid, and not return home Ull the coast i« clear. But in any event, we submit that a gypsy tea Isn't more Important than a week's wash. Hperbeek Is Sensible Sw«a City Herald: The lovely city of Estherville t* doing well In thin great game of "gimme" which gogettlng municipalities over the country are playing with the federal government dealing from tbe WPA pack.

Twenty minute* later the phone rang, and the executive's secretary answered the phone. "This is Jim Farley," said a voice. "I'd like to speak to Mr. " The secretary turned and passed the word on to the Big Boss. The bose quickly reached for the phone, pen and note pad, and said genially, "Hello, Jim, how are you?" Back came the voice on the other end of the wire, "I'm sorry. They haven't got swls* on rye. Would you like iwlss on roll «r bam or something?". In Edenton, N. C, a weekly newspaper editor was writing a pungent editorial entitled "Crime Mimt Stop." While doing it, thieves drove Into town, smashed Into a store, and began to methodically rob It of 183 pieces of merchandise and blew the safe to get 11000. The editor, watching all of the proceeding*, and viewing the unmolested effort* of the thieves, wound up hi* editorial— "Here In Edenton we are crtmelei* as all the world know*. We are a peace-loving community and have nothing to steal, but elsewhere crime does go on and on." He wo* half right, anyway, there wa» nothing left to steal after the thieves got out of town. Attorney* Unnan and Hhumway began the court term representing a plaintiff and defendant, then ewitched to representing the defendant and plaintiff, and wound up the court term »lttlng on the *ame side of the table representing the »am« defendant. Variety Is the spice of life. We trust that W. C. Uewel ban a good time down In Texas, but suggest that he be careful what he »ay» among those "died-ln-the-wool" »outhern democrat*.
