Krleps of Union township decided that the United States offered him more pVace and security In the remainder of his life, and therefore returned. Mr Krieps, telling of his experiences while in Luxemburg, stat: ed that during all of the time he was there the weather was i cold and rainy, and some of the crops couldn't even be planted, wniiesome that had been planted were rotting In the ground. The crop failure, coupled with the Increasing threat of war, which indications seem will break either this year or next in, Europe, caused Mr. Krleps to change his mind about spending the rest of his life In Luxemburg. This duchy borders on France and Southeast Belgium, and is ruled by a married woman, n Princess Antoinette. The country did not enter into the last war, but was used by troops for travel, although no damage or fighting was done there. It Is a farming country, with potatoes ' as one of the main crops. Mr. Krieps left Algona, Sept 20, 1936, sailing from New York for Paris. The sea was rough and the journey was not pleasant. He has two brothers, Mike and Frank, and a sister, Mrs. Mary Weyer in Luxemburg. He found that his old comrades and boyhood friends had In most cases passed away, or moved, and consequently decided to return to the United States. Luxemburg has contributed many of the pioneer families to Kossuth county history, .and a number from this section have returned there for visit in the past few years —but all came home to Kossuth county, U. 8.

The Chamber had been requested by the band to find out what could be done about getting another band location. The one near the swimming pool, they pointed out, was not conducive to attendance. The court house lawn was practically out as the supervisors do not favor building another stand on the lawn. Unless some change occurs, It looks like the band boys are go- of which If r.

Hutchison's Crew Outguns Momyer Gang, Wins Feed Don Hutchison had a crew of Legion members who procured shade more memberships in the organization than did John Momyer and his boys, and as a result the winning side were guests of the losers at the meeting Tuesday of the Algona Hagg Post. W. V. Butler gave a talk in con junction with a showing of his pic tures taken In Africa, and also showed a number of African curios.

Fifty days in the state senate proved a revelation to Lester Gillette, Fostoria, state senator from his district, and he passed some of ils observations from those BO days on to members of the Rotary club, n session Monday noon, at the Hotel Algona. Gillette summarized the work of he senate, told how he stood on the measures expected to come up within the next week or ten days. Taxpayer—Forgotten Man The state senate is composed of a majority of republicans. Mr. Gilette is a democrat But party lines seem to more or less fade on many of the measures he pointed out A sum total of over 300 bills have been introduced in the senate alone, with about 180 of them still waiting consideration or disposal of some sort. Gillette's talk was far from a political harangue. He spoke as a man who, elected for his first term, was going through an Initiation ceremony he had hardly expected. And he spoke squarely from the shoulder, as one having been elected, felt certain duties and obligations to the general public. He summarized his talk with the statement that thus far nearly everything had been thought of in the state legislature except ways and means of aiding the taxpayer—who by the way Is the forgotten man. Lobbies At Work Citing a vote on one bill, he told of a complete switch overnight in the vote on the measure in the state senate. Although he did not say so, the remarks might easily have been Interpreted to show that lobbies do their work well. Someone has called them the third and most effective is disastrous—branch of the state government. The state's social security act will cost about $100,000 per year to administrate, he stated.

Nobody hearing his straightforward talk could help but admire him, and certainly the state is in dire need of men who are not swayed by organized minorities, lobbies, bribes or rash and damfool legislation.

The White Phillips Corporation of Davenport was awarded the bond issue. The county court fund has been "in the red" for some time, and the deficit has been drawing 6 per cent interest. Under the refunding plan, the supervisors believe it will be possible to redeem the deficit in a few years, and cut the interest from 6 to 2% percent. The White Phillips Corporation will turn the bond issue for as small a percent as it can, and the difference between that and 2% percent will be their margin of profit for the deal. Bids on printing were opened, also, and the lowest bid for the bar docket was submitted by the Whittemore Champion, and the lowest on the annual financial statement booklet by The Upper Des Moines, who got the jobs as a result.

Recent news from DCS Moines indicates that the tax fight has at least caused legislators to consider possible changts, revisions and improvements in the tax, but it seems evident that total abolition of the tax is not likely.
