The political situation In Iowa, gleaned from exchanges and from conversation with men who travel over Iowa, would indicate that Congressman Dickinson will win the senatorial 'IN POttTICS. Religion and politics do not mix welL Proposed Brltfc." since that on taxation "by Ed. HI. Smith, I take this opportunity to .analyze some of the statements .put forth la said con* tnbutlon. The substance of the article Is as follows: Two brothers own a home in »*»«*, ** Si *«« *» Progressing rapidly, «gd Oft. the trews paring about 1,600 feet of Britt having an assessed of 42,,- 300.00 and having a taxable value of one-fourth of that, amounting to $576.00 on which they paid a tax for 1930 _ „„ scours.

The ' to Lundln Brothers of nation by a safe margin In the June primary. Frank Lund, who was the last to announce his candidacy, Is expected to pull some votes from Dickinson, but not enough to jeopardize his nomination. Governor Hammlll will poll, it is thought, a good vote In certain sections, but the popularity of Mr. Dickinson with the agricultural people of the state will give him a vote that cannot be overcome. The prediction from all sources Indicate that Dickinson will be nominated. A three conic-red fight for governor makes the outcome in the primary very i „,„,.,,, uncertain. Ed. M. Smith, secretary of state, is reported as Improving his Mr. chances every day. Dan Turner is very strong in sections of Iowa and is making an aggressive fight. Senator Lange of Dubuque is making a fight for the nomination using the chain store and the Income tax, to which he Is opposed ns Issues. Mr. Turner favors a state Income tax and Mr. Smith opposes It on the grounds that it will mean another tax and will not affect the tax on real estate. The fight is waxing warm and while It is conceded that either Smith or Turner will be the nominee, Senator Lange's entrance Into the campaign may have Its effects upon the rseult. The Tenth district has three good men running for congressman In Fred Larrabee of Fort Dodge, Senator Fred QJlchrlst of Laurens and Editor S G Ooldthwalte of Boone. Sen - was somewhat of an issue In the last presidential campaign and all law-abiding citizens became disgusted over some of the things thai Were said. The average voter does not care what religious faith a candidate may Possess, providing he has qualifications to fill the office and Is a clean and honorable person. It makes no difference If he be Catholic, Jew or Protestant but he must be a citizen and It was of the various nations of the old world and the various faiths hi religion that this nation was settled, grew and be- one of the leading nations of the One of'the first principles of [this country was freedom from the tyrannical rule of monarchies and the leading thought was freedom of religion. Why, then should religion he made an Issue in an election In this free country. -All had a hand In its growth and prosperity. All should be privleged to enjoy this freedom. WHY NOT USE DANDELIONS? Dandelions are plentiful In Iowa Lawns of blue grass have been taken over by the dandelion and where there was once a velvety deep green there Is now a rich golden yellow. Fighting the dandelion is up hill work. ^ It Is almost Impossible to get rid of them -r .TVkuw Mt^ V»1* 4GOU1U \Jt, WIG UlUUUlC tax. That Is the property party of the story. The Income is then figured oh each of the •brothers at $2,000.00 or $4,000.00, which at $8.00 per thousand gives $20.00 as the Income tax. Then by deducting the $5.75 gained by reason of the Income tax from the $20.00 lost by the same, gives a net loss of $1455 as a black eye to the Income tax. Then they say, "It would affect the .farmer and land owner Just the same as us." Also they say, "You, farmers who want to do some figuring, take your assessment roll and see how much it would save you." With my assessment roll at hand for 1930, I will show how the income tax would affect me. Assessable valuation of land and personal property, $19,032.00. Taxable valuation at one-fourth gives $4,758.00, tax for 1930, $317.03. °f 5£ afl i kat0 ' who have ft flfeet of thirteen mnnhi^ - i.--ic—— h * ve * n °*n K"?™ on the paving job at present. much interest In the games In the past Material is loaded on trucks at St. pet- Md 5 1 ! 8 J? ar ^t 11 a BWd system 'la er an <J hauled to the huge mixer on the regard to the playing they should show *°"j*«te»-belag suppliid by pipe" ***- Si Z£f? %£ & fi ? chWBe H^J d * Wl i tely thfce ftn <» one'half games which wfll be otoved on I ™e* from the Intersection of the Ka« "~" """ x " ' St. , - . c Ings.

I Saving by reason of a ten mill reduction due to the Income tax on the $4,758.00 taxable valuation, gives a saving of $47.58. Figuring the personal exemptions allowed In the proposed Income tax law would exempt me from any Income tax whatsoever, and I would gain by reason of the income tax the $47.58. It therefore follows that with an income tax as proposed, my tax for 1930 which Is $317.03 would be $269.45. I will add that these figures plainly Indicate that land and property owners would have a large reduction In taxes by the adoption of the income tax. The Britt case analyzed.

Two ladles are contending for the •recorder's office, Mrs. Laura Paine of Algona and Mrs. Warburton of Lakota. Naturally Mrs,'Paine is expected to receive a nice vote in her home town and also at Hurt, where she grew to womanhood, and Mrs. Warburton, through her work with the farm bureau Is expected to receive a large .vote from that source and the result' Of this election is also a guess. Charles E. Chubb and Miss Bertha Johnson are opposing each other for the auditorship. Both are well known In the county and each has many friends. They are making a thorough canvas of the voters and Miss Johnson, by past experience and Mr. Chubb by his knowledge of engineering and clerical work, two well qualified candidates, insure the county of a flrst class official. For cornoer, the contestants are W. E. Laird find L. M. Merritt, two of Algona's undertakers. Both are workers and the winner will not be known until after the election. 'next-year-regardless'of all this talk about taxes. ' Scientists or what ever you call them, say that Umburger cheese Is rich in vitamin A. Now we know that vitamin A can be found in the barnyard.

Now if the exemption on each Is $2,000.00 there would be no income tax for them to pay under the income tax law as proposed, and the $5.75 saving due to the ten mill reduction by reason of the Income tax law would be a $5.75 bonus.

Your vote and Of course it is an additional tax for those who have large incomes on which they now pay no tax and a subtrac- tional tax for the home owner and proprietors of small businesses and the average farmer with limited incoim For it is in fact a replacement tax an lessens the amount these people pa in proportion to what is collecte througn the income tax law from thos who are able and to pay. It is begging the question, if not ai attempt at deception to argue that th legislature would increase the budge to the amount of the proeeRds or tli income tax. The dissimulators or pro varicators or tax dodgers when discuss ing the income tax remind one of the culprit in court being tried on a crimi nai charge, who naturally being an xlous about the outcome oifered numerous BUgpestions to his attorney during the trial. With his patience about exhausted by the annoyance the attorney said, "leave it me—I'll see that, justice is done" to which the client replied 'That's what I'm afraid of." There would be nothing in our income tax law that would preclude lerretin" out the intangibles that so often escape the assessor, we can be assured and there could be no plausible objection on the part of income tax advocates to it's being done. In fact, they ought and probably will include that In their program for framing equitable T8.X iUVt'iS. The ever-preient and difficult problem is to equalize the tax burden and •in a proixjrly organized and honestly administered system of government the patriotic worthy-of-the-name citizen would deem it a privilege rather than a burden to pay his Just proportion of the cost of government.—Contributed , All we have to say is this, If Ruth Hanna McCormick spent a million dollars to secure the senatorial nomination in Illinois, she spent too damn much. The job is not worth it. When Iowa roads are paved and the wide intersections are filled with beautiful flowers and shrubs, eastern tourists will have a different story to tell when they get back home. A candidate for office must be mighty careful what he says and how he says it. One fellows hears with the left ear, another with his right and the each get a different story out of a state ment.- Eighteen foot paving is pretty narrow when two big trucks with boxes extend ing out on each side try to pass a forty miles an hour. If the paving wa. wider they would probably build thi trucks wider. Whoever becomes governor, Smith Turner or Lange, Iowa will have BOOC! looking governor with a good personality. Either one of them would nr doubt be outstanding among a group of governors. Joe Anderson Comes Out for Constable. Joe Anderson, for several years a night watchman in Algona, employed ay the business men, has announced his candidacy for constable. Joe has many friends who will do what they can to nominate and elect him. Fined $50 for Reckless Driving. John Sheets of Hutohins, was fined 0 and costs one day last week by uatlce A. Hutchison for reckless driv- 50 senate, and his numerous other activities, including a long and flrst hand association with farming and dairying, give ample assurance of his fitness for the position of congressman. Not a man who spends his energies In noise making tactics, Senator Larrabee Is a man who gets things done." "Countless progressive thinkers and leaders have volunteered their support to Larrabee. When men like Judge W. S. Kenyon, former United States senator from Iowa, who headed the list of signers of Larrabee's nomination papers, and Dr. Lars W. Boe, formerly of Forest City and one time leader in the Iowa senate, give their endorsement to Larrabee, the progressive character of his candidacy is clearly shown." "During the past few weeks and months, Senator Larrabee has visited every section of the district. He has discussed conditions with hundreds of men and women, farmers, laboring men, business and professional men. He has spoken at various meetings. Nevertheless, the size of the Tenth district make it impossible for him to personally visit and see every voter in the district, a fact which he exceedingly regrets." record of eight the -members have been wondering the Iowa what sort of damage could be asked under this particular situation. The Raising Potatoes in Eagle Lake. Swea City Herald: C. O. Peterson and George Moore are this year increasing their acreage of potatoes on the bed °^ for !2! r Eagle lake to Eagle township. They plan to plant between fifty and sixty acres this year, whereas last year they grew about thirty-eight acres Irom which they dug about 8,000 bush- fw ^ °* , sald ^^ay that between thirty and forty acres had been planted. He said he had put in twenty.four days cutting seed potatoes. A seed plot of three acres will be put In be- 'ore the planting fqr the year ends. W.

In other words the course Is ruined. Buell Pearson of Swea City and E. R. Worley of this place held a conference with one of the. highway officals Tuesday, when several propositions were offered by the latter. However, it was finally suggested that they would send their surveyors here to survey and lay out additional ground to the west and south for a new course. It is hard to determine the actual damage in a case of this kind. The boys have struggled along for five years with an estimated expenditure of about seven hundred dollars per year. They have just reached a stage where the turf and greens are in good condition and it would take two or three years to put a newly laid out course in the same condition. The official admitted it was the first experience since' his time on the Job that they had cut through a golf course at least in such a large way and that the damage was JOHNSON. 43.491 FOB REPRESENTATIVE.
