The Upper Des Moines-Republican, January 21, 1931 NOT TO ACC Who Made Promise Seated in House After Contest. .DAN TURNER WAS INSTALLED AS Iowa Legislature and Other State Capital Matters Discussed by our Special Correspondent. tBy Hon. G. L. Caswell, Secretary Iowa Press Association.) Des Moines, Iowa, January 19.— "What a week of big tthlngs the past seven days have been in this capital city of Iowa. The convening of the biennial general assembly; organlza- ton of both houses, election of speaker, and presdent pro tern, Introduction of bills to begin the legislative grind on tax revision, and inauguration of new governor. Then the convention of the Iowa Farm Bureau members brought thousands here for three days. Another big feature of the week was •the annual Wallace Farmer-Iowa Homestead banquet honoring fifteen more "Master Farmers" on the 13th. •The Savery hotel banquet room was literally packed with former master fanners 'and their wives and distinguished people from all walks of life -who had been invited to participate. "Each master farmer of this year's selection made a brief speech which was broadcast over the radio. The slogan of Uncle Henry Wallace, Iowa's splendid farm leader of a generation ago— "Good Farming, Clear Thinking, Right Living," was exemplified to the honor and credit of the men and women of "Iowa who are doing their best to make of farming a profession and a business. Along with these affairs is the annual convention of the Iowa Veterinary Medicine Association, with a large attendance; the Iowa Fox and Breeders Association, and the Mink Iowa Moving Picture Operators' Association. Truly, representative of the organization mania of the age. legislature Opened and Organized. The opening session of the 44th general assembly was on Monday, January 12th ad ten o'clock, and as always It was an interesting event. Frank Hollingsworth of Boone was made temporary speaker to call the house to order. The newly elected Speaker, Francis Johnson, of Dickinson county, was then formally placed In the chair. He made a brief speech asking cooop- •cration of the members and pleading for constructive work. The first and a real burst of oratory then entertained the members when P. H. Donlan of Palo Alto county, a democrat, nominated Mrs. Carolyn Pendray, the only woman member of the house for speaker pro tern. The oratorical appeal did not influence the members, however, against their caucus pledges and Representative RutJedge of Webster county was chosen speaker pro tern. He was given the gavel and presided for a few minutes. His fine personality and resounding voice created a splendid impression. Resolution Endorses Moore. The first act passed at this session was a joint resolution presented at Monday's first session—a resolution endorsing Hon. E. R. Moore of Cedar Rapids for the Federal Reserve Board to succeed the late E. H. ham. Cunning- After the preliminary motions for organization of the senate, Lieutenant Governor Arch McFarlane requested the privilege of appointing a "committee on committees" for the senate —a unique procedure in that body. His motion prevailed and he appointed Senators Moen of Lyon county, Patterson of Kossuth, Rigby of Jones, Doran of Boone, Stoddard of Woodbury and Baird of Pottawlattamie as the six members, who shall make up the entire personnel of committees to guide the work of the session. This committee will report to the senate on Tuesday, the 20th, and this report will be the high spot of interest in the senate this week. The move shears the lieutenant governor of his power over committees and it will affect the entire business of the session. Ask Repeal of $500 Expense Law. One of the very first bills introduced at this session appeared in the senate Tuesday, when Senator B. M. Stoddard of Woodbury county presented a bill calling for the repeal of the act passed by the previous general assembly which provided for $500 expense money to each member. This act has been assailed from all side as illegal and unconstitutional, and it is said it caused the defeat of practically half of the old membership. Its repeal now Is regarded us certain. Later, it . is said, a new bill may provide for the same amount as increased salaries to future legislative members. The repeal of this expense law at this time may not deprive members elected at the last election of the added amount if they demand It, unless the passage of the act Itself is tried out in court and adjudged unconstitutional. Whether such a court action will be instigated or not, remains to be seen. Numerous Contests for Seats. Co-Incident with this alleged Illegal expense matter came a contest lor the seat In the house for Iowa county, where J. P. Gallagher, democrat, won over L. W. Hatter. The charge was that Gallagher had promised the voters that he would refuse to accep he •expense grab" and thus had utteied a bribe to the voters which is illegal. A contest committee composed of Mayne of Pottawattamie, Tamislea of Harrison, Fendray of Jackson, Drake of Keokuk and Simmer of Wape lo made'short work of this contest by lAiken, Ida; B. G. Allen, Pocahontas; 'and G. E. Miller, Shelby. In the O. J. Dltto-H. C. Hattendorf contest—J. P. Blair, Buena Vista; W. M. Short, Woodbury; H. N. Hansen, Winnebago; O. J. Relmers, Lyon and O. B. Stiger, Tama. In the E. H. Fabrltz-L. W. Hall con- tesV-D. R. McReery, Linn; O. W. Lamb, Dallas; Homer Hush, Montgomery; 8. D. Whiting, Johnson, and H F. Garrett, Wayne. In the Fabritz-Hall contest It Is alleged by Hall that some 19 absent voters' ballots still lay in the court house at Ottumwa uncounted and they will reveal a majority for him if they are counted. , Hammllt's Farewell Address. The house and senate met in joint session in the house chamber Tuesday afternoon to hear the final message of Governor John Hammill, who has served Iowa as chief executive for six years. Governor Hammill covered some eighteen newspaper columns with his observations and recommendations for the good of the state, taking two hours to deliver the address. It can hardly be reviewed in this report, but his friends anticipated that in future years the ex-governor may have the satisfaction of pointing back to this address and exclaiming, "I told you so." At the short business session of the senate the second day of the session appeared the several taxation bills prepared by the legislative taxation committee. These bills relate to the following subjects; creating the office of county assessor, imposing a state income tax, Imposing a corporate extess tax, clarifying the powers of state tax board over local taxing bodies, providing for a mortgage registration fee, re- during the rate of tax on moneys and credits. Governor Turner is Inaugurated. Thursday saw Dan Turner formally Inaugurated as governor and the joint session of house and senate heard his inaugural address (less than half as long as the last address of Governor Hammill). Governor Turner pledged his best efforts toward the betterment of the people and the reduction of taxation and toward economy In government. He declared not a dollar should be appropriated from the state treasury that was not absolutely essential and urged economy clear down the line from state to township. He declared for an income tax and other changes in the tax laws with a view of reducing the tax burden and more equitable distributing it among: the people. He urged an increased inheritance tax, a corporation tax, Increased powers for the board of assessment and review, earnest consideration of the county assessor plan, genuine tax revision, regulation of public utilities, regulation of telephone and telegraph rates, regulation of pipe line corporations; vigorously opposed diverting highway, funds from the purpose "now defined in the law"; advocated the consolidation of departments, study of industrial conditions and unemployment, the encouragement of vocational training In the com- moa schools; the encouragement of agriculture, manufacturing and mining and use of Iowa products; advocated the repeal of the legislative expense law; special consideration of child welfare; curbing of paid lobbyists; law enforcement, and urged expediting the work of the legislature by elimination of red tape. Adjourned Till January 20th. House and senate now stand adjourned till Tuesday, January 20th. The glittering inaugural reception and all took place at the state capitol on Thursday evening. At eight o'clock the state house was simply packed with officials and members of the house and senate, and the public generally. State officials and their wives with the full-dressed military escort of the governor, took places in the governor's reception room and there for several hours received and shook hands with those introduced into the line. A splendid band played during the evening, and the ball—well, those who could wiggle and twist to the strains of the music and compose their consciences that they were dancing, held sway till a late hour. Turner May Appoint Fifteen. Governor Turner may appoint and the senate must conf irm at least fifteen major officials of the state govern- ASK KOSSUTH CO. FOR $600 RELIEF Funds to be Used by Red Cross for Drought Relief in 21 States. ANY CONTRIBUTIONS ARE APPRECIATED. Deposit Boxes Will be Placed In Bustness Houses to Collect Funds for the Drive! Mrs. Lee O. Wolfe, corresponding secretary of the Kossuth county chapter of the Red Cross, recently received a telegram asking the county for a quota of $600 to be used In drought regions. Mrs. Wolfe writes as follows concerning the drive: The executive board of the Kossuth county chapter of the Red Cross met at the high school building at Algona Wednesday afternoon in response to a telegram asking Kossuth county to raise $600.00. Those present at the meeting at Algona were: Superintendent Overmyer, who is vice-chairman of the Red Cross; E. J. McEvoy, treasurer; Mrs. Lee O. Wolfe, secretary; H. W. Miller, roll call chairman; Miss Antoinette Bonnstetter of the Junior Red Cross and Mrs. Elinor Button, welfare worker. The telegram follows: "Mrs. Lee O. Wolfe, secretary of the Kossuth couny -chapter Red Cross. Great suffering demands during the last ten days has made it imperative for an .immediate campaign for Red Cross relief fund to meet the emergency. Part of 21 states in drought stricken area, ten million dollars needed to prevent untold suffering and actual starvation of thousands of families. Pollution of water supply caused by dying cattle added to whiter hardship in some sections. President in a proclamation tomorrow will urge immediate and generous response. Confident your people will not fail to meet their share of this humanitarian need. Because of general conditions desire to impress you of necessity of making vigorous campaign. We must not fall. Your chapter quota six hundred dollars. Report action.—William M. Baxter, Jr., St. Louis, Missouri, January 12, 1931." At the meeting Wednesday it was decided to put the task of procuring relief funds In the hands of those people in the county who had charge of the annual Red Cross roll call in November. Instead of making a personal canvass and asking for funds, containers In which money may be left will be placed in the business houses in the towns of the county, and the citizens will contribute to this worthy cause. The cause is worthy and in many places the need is acute. Any contribution no matter how small wil be greatly appreciated. Kossuth county has never failed to respond to disaster relief and will not fail at this time. The following were appointed to take charge of the funds: Algona, Mrs. Elinor Button and Miss Antoinette Bonnstetter; Whittemore Seth B. Cairey; Swea City, R. A. Haglund; Penton, Mrs. Fred Newel; Bancroft, Mrs. George W. Carmean; Lone Rock, Mrs. Ersel Blanchard; LuVerne Miss Kate Skinner; Wesley, Mrs. John Amesbury and Mrs. Charlotte E. Murphy; Lakota, Miss Julia Llesveld. As nil of us do not live long enough a become aged, there are accidents nd sickness, along the pathways of ife. No one denies that it is wise to tiake a provision for old age; but wp re not all agreed as to the kind of rovlsion it is best to lay 1 up. Certain- y, we shall want money, for a desti- ute old man is indeed a pitiful sight. Therefore, save money by all means. But an old man also needs just that. particular kind of strength which the •dung men are most apt to waste. Many a foolish young man will throw way, on a holiday, a certain amount •f nervous energy which he will never feel the want of until he is seventy; and then, how much he will need it. It s curious, but true that a bottle of champagne at twenty, may Intensify the rheumatism of threescore.. It is a fact that overtasking the eyes at fourteen may necessitate the aid of spectacles at forty, Instead of eighty. We advise our young readers to be saving of health for their old age; for the maxim holds good with regard to tiealth as to money. "Waste not, want not." It is the greatest mistake to suppose that any violation of the laws of health can escape Its penalty. Nature forgives no sin, no error. She lets off the offender for fifty years sometimes, but she catches him at last and inflicts punishment just when where and how he feels it most. Save up for old age, but save knowledge; save the recollection of good deeds and innocent pleasure; save pure thoughts; save friends; save rich stores of that kind of wealth which time cannot diminish, nor death take away. Therefore, keep and save your vital force at all times.—C. E. Owen. ment before the present legislative session adjourns. Of these, three members of the state highway commission are possibly most important. Chairman Clifford Nlles of Anamosa; 0. A. Darting of Glenwood and C. C. Riepe of Burlington are the highway commissioners whose terms expire on July 1st. Three members of the board of education are also to be appointed, also the state insurance commissioner to succeed Ray Venter, a fire tiarshal, labor commissioner, industrial commissioner, adjutant general, member of the state board of control, member of the state board of parole, and one member of the important board of assessment and review. These are the iuicy plums to be handed out to those who can claim the governor's favor. It is stated that more than 150 men are asking for the highway commissioner jobs, and that some hundreds are after the other places as well. Quick Lunch Shop Has Good Business, The Quick Lunch Shop on South Dodge street, which is owned by Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Shorb and which was opened a month or so ago, is now do- Ing a very good business and is putting out a high brand of food. Mr. and Mrs. Shorb, who formerly ran a quick lunch in Emmetsburg. are well pleased with Algona and the class of patronage they are getting. These people are welcomed to Algona and It it hoped that their business will be a success.

When he finished the congregation gave vent to Its feelings by applauding. ^Saving for Old Age. ASS'N. AGAINST PROHIBITION Invitations Sent to Many Citizens of County Asking to Join. Ghevrolet Favors News- Paper Advertising. Another aggressive advertising campaign with newspaper display columns carrying the brunt of the attack, is promised for this year by R. K. White, advertising manager of the Chevrolet Motor Comnany. Long one of the nation's leading advertisers, the Chevrolet organization lent its endorsement to the pulling power of the newspaper by using 6,700 dailies and weeklies to announce its new 1931 car in November, the largest newspaper schedule ever used by Chevrolet in one campaign since the Inception of the company. This move was made despite sub-normal business conditions and the generally slackened promotional activities of manufacturers in and out of the automobile industry. "We made this move," Mr. White explained, "because we are in direct accord with the frequently expressed view that the only way to make bad business good and good business better is to put abnormal effort Into your activities when you face sub-normal conditions. Not 'only did we carry the largest newspaper schedule we ever used, but we enlisted new forms of advertising to put our new car message across. Both" the radio and the motion picture .screen were added this year. 'Botmtre^flSw"'media in our program, and both were added because a manufacturer with a national market intensively cultivated cannot afford to overlook any new means of approach to that market. "We are continuing to use the radio and the screen to supplement and buttress our newspaper campaigns just as we have always used national magazines, outdoor boards, direct mall and other media for the same purpose. The newspaper, however, continues to form the backbone of our campaigns, and for the present will continue to do so. It, in the parlance of the gridiron, carries the ball and the rest run interference." ASK VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS. < Claim Made Thnt Association Has Fn- rollcd Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Members In Year. Invitations were received by many Kossuth county people last week inviting them to join the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment A personal letter accompanied the application blank, which reads as follows: "Dear Mr. Blank: It was not a landslide on November 4th. But—eleven states having forty-five per cent of the population of the United States did vote In favor of repeal of the Eighteenth amendment In clear-cul contests. The expression in each of these states was either through a referendum or through the election of governors or United Sjtate senators It means that our country Is repudiating prohibition. "The way to secure repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment is to smash prohibition state by state. Illinois Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana Nevada, New York, Rhode Island and Wisconsin are already on record as refusing to have anything to do With the Great Hypocrisy. "The time has come for Iowa to Join in the fight. You are invited to become a member of the Association Against /the Prohibition Amendment Membership involves no enrollment fees, dues, nor other financial obliga tions. The association is supported entirely by voluntary contributions. "You may contribute—or not—as yoi choose. If you can contribute it wil help to carry on the work. If yoi feel that you cannot contribute, and are in sympathy with the principles and aims of the association. I urge you to enroll as a member. "The association has enrolled 350,000 new members within the past year When the membership in Iowa is strong enough to maintain a'state division, such an organization will be formed to unite into a solid fighting body all those in the state who are ready to take their stand and deliver Iowa from the stranglehold of prohibition.

A special from Algona to the Daily Tlrgister says: The Algona municipal light and water plant in 33 years has increased an original investment of $10.000 into a strictly modern and paid for plant valued at $350,000 figures released here Saturday showed. The plant paid for itself out of earnings, and has no bonded debt, Joe Kelly, superintendent, said. In addition, it has accumulated a sizeable sinking fund. It has had no current failure for 15 years. Over a radius of eight miles the piano serves 150 farms and 1,400 city homes. During the last years representatives of 15 cities have come here to study the plant prior to starting similar improvements in their own cities. A new water filtering plant will be built next year, according to present plans." Sign and return the enclosed enrollment card.

They give instant relief and contract the opening in a remarkably short time. The secret of their success is in their simplicity. An expertly adjusted device seals the opening without discomfort or detention from work. It is practically everlasting, sanitary, comfortable and actually holds ruptures which heretofore were considered uncontrollable.
