Opposed to a General Sales Tax. What Fellow Legislators Say of Jensen Terrill, Iowa, February 28, 1930 — Relative to the record of Hon. 'j. H. Jensen of Kossuth county in the last general assembly I feel that on the whole it is a very creditable one. Being a farmer myself, it is natural that I should look upon legislation from that standpoint. I do not recall a single instance where Mi Jensen's vote and mine differed on matters that directly affected agrl culture. He aligned himself with and consistently stayed, by the group which attempted to keep down state expenditures. He was consistently on the job and missed very few vote on bills of any character. J discussed different matters of legislation with him at different times and he always appeared to be well informed and voted his own convictions at all times. Yours very .truly, (Signed) Francis Johnson, Representative from Dickinson county. Buying Obituary of Mrs, Louisa Heinsohn.

Jensen, state representative of Kossuth county, and a member of the House of Representatives of the 43rd General Assembly of Iowa, was active hi the Economy Bloc of the House, and demonstrated that he was in sympathy with any reduction In state expendi- tures where it was advisable to make a reduction. He was concerned about the interests of the fann- ers and voted to the best Interests of his constituency. Respectfully, (Signed) S. R. Torgeson, Representative from Worth county. (Banker). Burt, Iowa, May 9, 1930.—The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation scan quite closely the work of the different legislators. In a recent letter the secretary of that organization writes me that Representative J. H. Jensen's record is very satisfactory. I was especially pleased to observe that In the tax battles and again In the fight between our dairy people and the oleomargarine Interests the adroit propaganda put out by our enemies had no effect on Representative Jensen. He was loyal 'to his constituents. Sincerely, (Signed) G. W. Patterson. Des Moines, Iowa, May 3, 1930.— Honorable J. H. Jensen, State Repre- enatlve of Kossuth county, was a member o.f the Forty-third General Assembly of Iowa, of which I also was a member. I always regarded Mr. Jensen as ne of the good, substantial members f the House of Representatives. He was seldom if ever, absent from th sessions and was always on the jo as his record on the votes taken wil show. He was always active In be (half of the Interests of agrlcultur and advocated economy in state expenditures. Wherever he and I differed on an> measures or issues before the General Assembly, I always found him courteous and fair hi upholding his position. (Signed) Frank C Byers, Representative from Linn County. (Lawyer.) Pocahontas, Iowa, March 5,1930.— 'Representative J. H. Jensen Is one of those legislators who certainly rates being classed with the courageous type or the kind that makes his own decisions and votes them. By that I do not mean to leave the impression that he does not work with anyone and plays a lone hand for that is far from the fact. Rather, tie was one of the fifty or so members of the house who aligned himself with the progressive group and when convinced that the program was right he played straight through to victory or defeat. His willingness to vote his convic- iions In the face of bitter opposi- ion was plainly shown when he vot- ed to empower the Elections Committee of the House with the authority to investigate the campaign expenditures of Governor John Hammill. In the program of the so-called "Economy Bloc," Representative Jensen was a strong factor. As the appropriation cuts were offered by that organization, his vote was always rightfully counted on by his colleagues, who, for several sessions, have kept state expenditures at a minimum, in the face of a "highly organized administration machine, which has sought more and more of the taxpayers' money to spend. If any member of the House Is to be credited with adhering to the policy of economy in governmental expenditure, Representative Jensen deserves the recognition. .' The House of the 44th General Assembly needs men like the Kos- mth county legislator. The greater hen- experience In legislation, the more valuable they will be, and It s the sincere hope of his colleagues n the progressive faction of the House, that Representative Jenen be returned by his constituents whom he has served so faithfully.

About fifty children of the rural schools finished up their eighth grade examinations Monday at the Legion hall. Most of them took make un examinations; others were unable to take them before because of illness [Woman Keeps Her Purse from Thieves. Last Thursday evening about nine o'clock two thugs cornered Mrs. Floyd Bllsborough near the Dr. A. L. Rls home on North Thorlngton street. Ihey attempted to take away her pocket booi by force. She resisted and screamed This scared them and they ran toward the business part of town. It was so dark that Mrs. Bilsboruogh could not see what the miscreants looked like anc she did not report the occurrence until the next morning. The officers had so little to go on that they say It will be almost Impossible to get any clues They think probably that they are the ones who have been breaking and entering houses in Algona during the past week. For Sheriff Frank W. Green Your vote will be appreciated. Poppy Day Was a Large Success. The American Legion Auxiliary put on the best poppy drive last Saturday that they have ever experienced. Approximately fifteen hundred poppies were sold and the receipts totalled about $150. There were no large donations. A few dollar donations were the largest and nearly everyone gave a clime or more. The drive lasted from nine in the morning, Saturday, until nine at night. Some one will be at the door of the Call theatre Friday selling the poppies to anyone who did not have the chance to purchase them last Saturday. Thirteen members of the Auxiliary were on the strees selling the popples and Mrs. William Hawcott was the chairman for this part of the work Twenty-five per cent of the local proceeds goes to the headquarters to be used in child welfare work. The seventy-five per cent that is left is divided between the local post of the American Legion and the Auxiliary, to help veterans or their families locally 01 throughout the state. It is a good work and the ladies are to be commended on their success in selling so many of the poppies. Flowers for Memorial Day. Algona children are requested by the w. R. C. to bring either cut or wild flowers to the Legion hall Thursday between the hours of one and five o'clock p. m. The W. R. C. will mee at the Legion hall at 9:15 Friday morn Ing. Date of Auxiliary Meeting Changed The American Legion Auxiliary meet, ing will be held In Burt, June 17 Instead of June 10 as was previously announced. iCorrection. In an article in last week's paper t was stated that Mrs. Alfred Jergensen and a Mr. Weydert had had an auto accident at the Intersection of Thorlng- ton and State streets when Mrs. Jergensen ran into the Weydert car. From the article it would seem that Mrs Jergensen was wholly to blame but Mr. Weydert made a U-turn BO quickly that she could not bring her car to a stop before the cars collldsd and like many other auto accident it was perhaps unavoidable.
