Kossuth Medical Society— The Kossuth County Medical Society held a meeting at the Algona hotel on Club Has Enrollment of Sixty Members and Meets Twice a Month. Kate Annls Composed Club Song. Union Twp.. February 3. Special: It was in the days "way back when" (just twenty-five years ago* about eighteen fair young farm matrons hitched up their old Dobbins and drove to the hospitable home of Mrs. Libbie Carroll in response to a kind invitation extended by her to try and organize a Woman's club In Union township. The result of this gathering was a Union Mothers and Daughters club. Their dreams had become a reality and today it is one of the finest as well as the oldest rural club In the state of Iowa. Where the first meeting was held is still known as the "Carroll Place." which is tenanted by Mir. and Mrs. Floyd Bennett. The dues were ten cents a year to start with. Increasing later, but at that time the dues were sufficient to meet the expenses. There were no club books until the year 1906, when the first ones were issued. The meetings before that time were arranged at each previous meeting. Mrs. Kate Annls was the first president and served in that office for several years- Later on a constituttion was drawn up by some of the charter members, which has been changed but slightly since that time. The dues were at one time raised to one dollar per year. The club now has an enrollment of sixty members and is one of the most important social 'functions of the township, meeting every two weeks. The anniversary meeting held last Thursday at' the home of Helen Vogel in Burt with Lillian Jones as assisting hostess, was so placed because Mrs. Vogel's mother was the first hostess when the club was organized and was one of the women so gifted that others profited under her leadership and received inspiration during their club days. The present meeting was called to order by the president, Winnifred Jergenson. Roll call was answered with club recollections. The club song was sung by the members with Mary Wood at the piano. Tuning in on station MDC letters from distant members were broadcast. They were from Sadie Schenck, Minneapouis; Minnie Heibhoff, Union; Kate Annis, Miles City, Mon., Mrs. M. Dau, Three Hills, Alberta, Canada; Mrs. Claude Salisbury, Fort Benton, Montana, and Mrs. M. Morrow, Algona. Mesdames Minnie Sarchett, Lulu Elston and Luella Schenck were the announcers. A song "When All the World Forgets You"" and an encore was sung by'Tressle Brace of 'BJirt accompanied on -5,thS •plano'ljy-6ffidys"Kacwcott-also- of-Bnrt. Instrumental music, "New Spring" and "Valse Aerienne," was rendered by Clara Thompson and this concluded the program. There were thirty-six mothers and daughters and nine visitors present. The visitors included Mesdames H. Herman, George Hofius, Robert Vincent, all of Algona; Mesdames Frank and Leonard Cruikshank of Union and Mrs. Tressie Brace, Miss Jennie Thompson and Mrs. Gladys Hawcott of Burt. A tray lunch was served by the hostesses. Favors were silver colored nut baskets with a small card attached to the handle bearing the printed inscription, "Mothers and Daughters club. 1906-1931."

Assessor System (By C. B. Hutchins). Des Moines, January 29.—To the Editor: I went over to the capitol this afternoon and listened to the debate on the subject of county assessor. It seems to me that some people need to have their eyees opened in regard to some matters relating to our present. Inequitable method of assessment. I sometimes wonder why it takes so long to bring abaut some needed reform. The subject of tax reform as well as the subject of county assessor is at least eighteen years old, having been broached and discussed in the 35th assembly which sat in 1913. Just the same objections were urged then that are being urged now. Remonstrances came saving we do not wish for a change, we wish to be assessed by our own local assessors. The assessment of any piece of property ought not to "heed more than one valuation before going on to the tax lists. Under our present laws it may have and oftentimes is given five different valuations. The so-called assessment by the township assessor is only the first step. He gives it a guess value. It is nothing but a guess, no matter what the final result may be. The township board of equalization may change any or all or none of the values placed upon the properties. If the township board makes any changes, the assessor makes the changes ordered, making the"_c<rfrfic^ tions in the second book which' :: he'ls required to make, which book'^gt)^ to the county auditor's office for' iftx& ination by 'the county board of sUfle visors, which may raise or lower 1 ! the value of any, many or none of the properties as returned by the different townships of a county. At the last or next to the last assessment of real estate in Kossuth county, the price was raised four per cent In twenty- two of the twenty-eight congressional townships of the county. One or two were lowered, I believe. One or two raised more than four per cent, and one or two left unchanged, and that too after a meeting of the assessors of the county at the call of the auditor for the purpose of fixing a schedule of valuations that would need no changes. At the last, or the next to the last assessment of personal property, there were as I remember 51 changes, some of only a few percent, some as high as sixty-nine per cent, and that too after a meeting of the assessors for the purpose of fixing upon a schedule that should need no changing. After the board of supervisors has equalized assessment between townships, the county auditor must correct the books in his office to comply with the orders of the board, before a report can be made to the state board. Either of the changes cited above would require a good deal of work, especially where nearly every acre of land in the county had its value changed. After the auditor has made the changes ordered by the board a report is sent to formerly the state executive council, now the state board of assessment and review, for equalization between counties. If the state board makes any changes, which it often does, then there is more work for the auditor, to comply with the orders of the board. After these changes are all made, then the auditor must take one-fourth the assessed price fo rthe taxable price. Every step of this long drawn out process costs time and money. One meeting of the township and city boards of equalization costs the state over $47,000.00. If any raises In valuation are made a second meeting must be had to give those whose assessments are raised a chance to appear and show reasons why it should not be done. If one-half the boards In the state make raises, the second meeting will cost about $23500.00. I have no doubt but that the changes made by the different boards of equalization, and the consequent extra worlcof the auditors, including changing the assessed price to one-fourth for the taxable price is costing the state $100,000.00 or more a year. Under the proposed county assessor law there will be but one, if any. equalization and any piece of property will be given no more than one change in value, that by the board of supervisors, if an Individual is found to have a just grievance. For the aid and convenience of the county assessor I would have a law passed requiring that all warranty deeds, conveying real estate, farm lands in the county and town and city lots, should state the consideration for which they were sold. Require each recorder to keep a table of such deeds, each congressional township separately, for the convenience of the assessor. There is no better criterion upon which to base the assessing price of lands and lots than the selling price of nearby or adjacent properties, having them, the assessor could reach a much fairer value than is now possible in Kossuth county with its forty assessors, for although there would have to be deputies part of the year while assessments were being made, all would be working to one plan and not forty. Under the present law assessing is done at the worst time of the year possible. The months of April, May and June would be preferable in every respect. There is no question in my mind but that the county assessor system is far superior to the township system, both as a money saver and for securing a fair and equitable valuation of properties between individuals, and between the different counties of the state. There is much mode thato state. There is much more that can ae said but enough for now. Phillips to Fight Twice at Spencer. Clarence Phillips informs us that he-',is matched to fight "Wild Bill" Gerdes of Dickens in the semi-windup. s>t. Spencer February 9. The fight will six rounds and the,.jCjQffiUj0ut»h£=: tween: Jack Peterson, of Emmetiburg, 210, and Charlie Ruble of Spencer, 204 sounds, will go eight.

Dubbe who after serving in Algona for nine years, accepted a call to a church in the neighborhood of Fort Dodge. Rev.

The financial statement of the Algona Building & Loan Association for the past year which appears elsewhere in this paper shows that it is a growing organisation as well as a sounc one.

The association is doing much to teach the younger gener- aton as well as the old the value of saving. It enables young couplet to own their own home which otherwise would be an impossibility. The association has as officers stable business men who are well able to keep it running In the future as It has In the past. Former Algona Boy Died in South Dakota.
