CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS. Iowa has received official notice ram congress to cut down the num- BEETS A PROFITABLE CROP. Sugar beets have been about the most profitable of all crops In this of ^congressional ^d^strtots^ 'from (section during the past two or three years. The farmer knows what price he Is to receive when he plants his seed and only gambles with the elements. Farmers in northern Kossuth, who raised sugar beets at a profit last year, will contract for as much acreage as possible this year. The sugar. factories know just what they can use and contract for only as many tons as they will need. If there was some way whereby the packing houses could contract for so many head of cattle or hogs from the farmers at a given price or if the factories and mills that use corn and other grains could do the same and the farmer had some idea of what he was going to get for his produce, conditions would different. AS it is he plants the seed, takes his chances with the weather man and is at the mercy of ;he speculators. There is not an over production of corn reported, but the price is so low that it will not pay the :ost of production and the farmer has o trust to luck and wait until after harvest to see whether he is going to get paid for his time, labor, and seed. ~t is not a square deal. Comments of an Old Lawmaker (By Hon. O. B. Hutchins). In my last letter I touched on the and & hundred miles of street car lines loses two representatives in the lower house. This means a big job for the general assembly in redistricting the state. Several plans have been presented and nearly every member of the legislature has a different idea of what should be done. One suggestion Would place Kossuth county in the fourth district, taking in the north tier of counties, including Allamaktee and Clayton counties. The Tenth district is, perhaps, the largest district in the state at present. The new arrangement will enlarge other districts. We do not know how the present district could be improved and the people living in this district would no doubt prefer to leave it as it Is. Naturally, some politics will apply as did when the Third district, known as the Monkey Wrench district, was formed to take in enough republican votes to overcome the big democrat vote in Dubuque and other river counties. Some of these river counties are still democratic and it is probable that some such plan will be worked out in forming the new districts. It Is only politics and will probably prevent the election of a democrat congressman. If the present legislature had a democrat majority It's a safe bet that the new districts woulc Insure the election of several demo crats to congress. FARMING IN IOWA. The chief agricultural Industry in Iowa is raising hogs and, each yea the sale of swine brings to the state $250,000,000. If California had a gold mine it would be advertised to the world, yet few Iowa citizens have any Idea of what the farmer Is doing Iowa has about 200,000 farmers and they all raise more or less hogs. The farmer who sells his grain products on foot profits more than the farmer who sells his grain direct. A few years ngo the average farmer paid no attention to poultry raising, usually leaving it to the women folks, devoting his time to bigger things. When the prices of poultry and eggs soared they becr.me interested and many farms now have a thousand of more chickens besides ducks, geese and turkeys foraging through the barnyards and fields. prices have dropped! because of ~^ •• plus and tue only oft this surplus. The Calif orna fruit growers are advertising to the worW, that they have a large crop of oranges and to the value of oranges as a health food. Iowa farm organizations should get busy and advertise the food value of eggs and the present low prices. If people will eat more eggs the surplus •will disappear and the prices become normal. OTHER EDITORS RIDING THE NEWSPAPERS.

Dozens of instltu- ;ions, state as well as religious, spenu several months during the fine weather advertising their institutions by hav- ng organizations of tee classes men- toned visit communities and nut on irograms. They invariably make an 'ffort to have business men and teach- rs' association, local lodges, churches, ibraries and similar institutions work he local press for free mentions. They aever dream of not paying for their cir- ulars, their busses, the drivers, the otels, cafes and other places buii they are evidently under the impression lat newspapers are free horses and hat everyone who wishes should be ermltted to ride.

Every animal, bird snake, and insect found in Iowa is to be seen, preserved by the art of the taxidermist, and hi such a way as to copy nature, oftentimes, to perfection. Beginning with the 34t,h general assembly, the pictures of all members of that and succeeding legislatures are hung on revolving frames, the members of the senate on one side of one frame, those of the house on the next facing the members of the senate. As there are only fifty senators and 108 house members, the senate does not fill the frame and the lower part is occupied by the pictures of the members of the Legislative Ladies' League. Perhaps 1 may be excused for feeling a sense of pride In the fact that my picture and that of my wife will hang in the gallery of the state for generations after I have gone the way of all earth. And right now I wish to thank the people of Kossuth county for the honors bestowed on me by their suffrages. I may have made mistakes, and who does not, but God is my witness that as surveyor, auditor and as member of the legislature I tried to do my duty. Again let me say to any, who may be In Des Molnes, spend a day or two or more at the library. You will never regret the time thus spent. The Street Car System, I feel quite an interest in the street car system of Des Moines. It is wonderful as are' all street car systems that are run by electricty. People of this age and generation do not, cannot, realize the wonderful improvement that has been made in all kinds of transportation facilities during the last one hundred years. I can remember when there was not an electric street car on this earth. I attended the Centennial Exposition at Philadelphia In 1876. Nothing but horse cars were in any city. If the railway was at all hilly, as was the case in some parts of Philadelphia, and it did not take much of a hill either, one or more horses had to be coupled ahead of the regular team to pull the car up the hill. Say- Ing nothing of stops, I doubt whether horse cars ever went much faster than four miles an hour. I do not doubt that where the electric cars have a free run for two or more blacks, as they do some parts of the day that they oftentimes reach a speed of 25 miles an hour, and the wonder to me is that they can be stopped so quickly, without the least sliding or grind- ng of the wheels and that they can ;urn in so small space. At the end of ;he lines in some places, the cars turn n a circle, the one at the end of toe Ingersoll street lines, I believe is not more than four rods In diameter. At the ends of some lines the car runs n to a spur, backs up onto another pur and from that runs back on to he main line. There are between 99 in the city, mostly double tracked, and there are 124 cars in the service, nearly all of them in service at once, and I am told that the total dally mileage is from 16,000 to 18,000 miles. The force that propels the cars is carried by a copper wire one-fourth of an inch in diameter, up hill and down, working silently. I have wondered how many cars on a straight stretch could be propelled by the current in a single wire. Last Sunday I went out on the University avenue line. Coming back we met five cars on that line, all of which must have been supplied with power by a single wire and there are some pretty steep pitches on that line, but It did not seem to make any difference. There are so many automobile accidents that I much prefer riding In the street cars, and the street cars are not free from accident. There was one yesterday out near the west end of Ingersoll avenue. Out toward the outskirts of the city, where traffic is not heavy there is usually one main track and sidings every once in a while where the cars can pass. It was at one of these sidings that the accident occurred, two people being seriously injured, both motormen, and one passenger not so seriously. Fortunately there was only one passenger, the one hurt. A boy was killed by an autb yesterday by one of two autos that were thought to be racing. Oranges for $2.15 per Bushel. I never saw so much fruit on dls play as there Is here all the time this winter, consisting of oranges, grap fruit, lemons, apples and bananas Oranges have been shipped in by th carload and shoveled out and sold b the bushel in the manner of potatoe in Algona. I saw a pile of oranges in which the proprietor said there wer 500 bushels and I do not doubt it. Or anges sell at $2.15 per' bushel, nice flni grape fruit 35 cents per dozen, a large size, six for a quarter, cheaper than California lemons which were 39 cents per dozen. In one place apples are quoted at ten cents each, which, I think, would be nearly or quite ten dollars per bushel. Apples are really the highest priced fruit on the market. I do not understand why apples sell for such prices. I remember when they could be bought by the barrel western New York apples at $2.50 to $3.00 per barrel, one dollar per bushel. I have seen the time when I had apples for myself, all my boys and to give away to anybody who would come and pick them up and have bushels rot on the ground for want of users. Hardly an apple of any size can be had now for less than five cents. I am very fond of grape fruit, but would enjoy them better if they were not so full of seeds. I found one a few days igo with only three seeds and have found them with seventy and hardly ever less than fifty. Nature is strange In her ways.—C. B. Hutchins. 93-Year-Old Veteran Makes His Garden Hurt Monitor: J. H. Grover has always liked to work the soil. Although this well known Burt Civil War veteran is 93 years old, he has regularly made and tended an extensive garden This unusually mild winter tempted Mr. Grover to get out doors early. He started maklr.g a garden the lest part of February and has put In all the regular lino of garden sass. Whether it will come to a bad end, Mr. Grover Is not prepared to say, but he enjoyet being out and says that the grounc worked up well. News and Comment. Soak the rich with taxes and pension the poor seems to be the idea oi some politicians. The fewer changes made by the legislature In redistricting the state the better the people will be satisfied. The Iowa senate is trying to pull some big stuff when they refuse to confirm Governor Turner's appointments. The snow storm In Chicago gave employment to 35,000 men. Has anyone thought to give President Hoover credit for the big snow fall? They say It will cost the state $300,000 a year for a road patrol. Now the legislature will have to fim" --pmethlng else to tax to pay this bll We have two kinds of fa fessional or sidewalk fanners est-to-God dirt farmers.

The highway commission seems to have plenty of money and lots of business. Members of the legislature promised tax reduction and find it is a hard job especially when letters recommending appropriations are received from constituents to whom they made promises. With all the unemployment the legislature would fix five days as a period between popping the question and securing a marriage license- People act quickly these days and that law will result in a trip to an adjoining state and the Iowa minister or justice of the peace loses his fee. DEFEATS CITY MANAGER PLAN. Humboldt Independent: Fort Dodge defeated the council-manager plan by a vote of nearly two to one last week. If rumor can be relied on the fight at Fort Dodge developed into a contest to reduce or not to reduce the cost of city operation. To reduce the cost and thus reduce taxes would have meant the abandonment of several enterprises in which certain elements in Fort Dodge are deeply interested. Rumor says that Fort Dodge is struggling under a burden of taxes that makes property holding hazardous ana oftimes unprofitable. RENTING IS CHEAPER. Humbofldt Republican: TJhe other day a resident of Humboldt who owns one of our best homes produced figures that show it costs him more than two dollars a day to live in his house. That is, it cost him more than two dollars a day more than it would cost him to live in a rented house. Except for the desirability of owning his own home, this man would dispose of it and rent. When taxes reach a proportion that makes home-owning undesirable it is sime to call a halt. We prate about :axing capital because it is able to pay, and never consider that excessive taxes discourage enterprise, Industry, and thrift TRIPLE TAXATION. Eagle Grove Eagle: The injustice of a state Income tax has several aspects. One Is that the federal government already levies one, which is a complete answer to the argument a non-property holder pays nothing for ;he support of the government. Another is that if a man has property he pays taxes upon that property, and admittedly should not also be mulcted of his income upon that property. Again it penalizes and so discourages thrift and the saving of earnings. In nany cases it Is double and even triple taxation, federal, state and property. :t a person has no visiWle property he is paying taxes in office and residence rents. THE TAX MANIA. Rock Rapids Review: One hears much about the state income tax- Dickinson Says er Is Dry Hope" (From Helm News Service) tor Dickinson of Iowa President Hoover as the Washington, D. O., March 16.- Stiijred by the controversy among lemocrats at their national committee meeting over the prohibition issue Senator Capper of Kansas and Sena- proclaimed "dry" hope of their party and declared that he would be nominated and reelected in 1932. Senator Capper saw the developments at the democratic committee meeting and the prominence of Chairman Raskob in the party's affairs, assurance that the democrati party would take the "wet" side of thi issue in the next election. • » • President Hoover journeyed southward through Virginia to visit his son Herbert Hoover, Jr., near Asheville over the week end on his first visli out of Washington since early in October. With him were Mrs. Hoover Dr. Joel T. Boone, the White House physician; Lawrence Richey, one o: the president's secretaries, and a smal group of newspaper men. Although the president is much in need of a rest folowing his three gruelling months with a belligerent congress, he coulc not be prevailed upon to extend his trip even a day to permit a short motor ride through the Great Smoky Mountains. He was back at the White House in time for breakfast Monday. • • * It has been learned that it is President Hoover's intention to take a real vacation this coming summer, and unless something unforeseen develops he and Mrs. Hoover will leave the capital the last week in June or the first week in July for a trip throup.h the national parks in the far west, to their home in Palo Alto, California. Just as soon as the worries of the congress were removed, Mr. Hoover's mind drifted to thoughts of a vacation. With exception of a week's fishing expedition in Florida last winter and three days' fishing in the mountains near Willlamsport, Pennsylanvia, last spring, and his week end journeys to his fishing camp on the Rapidan River, Virginia, Mr. Hoover has been in Washington struggling with the affairs of his office ever since he became president. Death of the third Wagner unem- Jloyment bill was decreed by President ioover when he announced formally hat he disapproved the measure. Pres- dent Hoover said he had studied the bill, providing for a national system of "ederal and state aid employment ag- incies, "in an effort to find a method o make it of use in the present em- but little about the tax that the in- jployment situation." The study had iome tax will replace. Six montlis ago, convinced him, he added, that It would do more harm than good and "that, if I would prevent serious blow to labor during this crisis, I should not approve the bill." * » * Strong disapproval of President Hoover's veto of Senator Wagner's unemployment bill was expressed by women, representing different shades of political belief, who met here for the Progressive conference called by Sentor Norris of Nebraska. The veto of ;he Wagner bill was called an "outrage" by Miss Lillian D. Wald of New York "It was sabotage," she said, re- rerring to the opposition of Secretary year ago, emphasis was all on the replacement.' Now that feature has cen forgotten, apparently. A majori- y of the lower house—as was shown >y their vote a week ago, have an ncome tax complex. And they're act- ig accordingly. lowans can pay more axes. There's no question as to their billty to pay. But they don't relish he prospect. And if their represen- atives pass the state income tax bill nd don't make provisions for doing way with the property tax at the same time, they're going to have a hard time making explanations just before the next election. and the action of the presl- Doak dent. • • • A political revolt against existing economic conditions and. tendencies took shape at the conference-of Repair--Rebuild--Reroof! |A. wise man wrote: "If you really NEEp a thing and don't BUY it, you're'ex- travagant—NOT ECONOMICAL, It's more COSTLY to go without something you NEED than to buy it and get the BENEFIT of it," This sage philosophy seems particularly applicable this year, when the tendency generally is to RE-NEW, REPAIR, REBUILD and RESTORE things as they should be. Why not take time to look over things and make note of what is needed—and having done this, to then arrange to buy from the most dependable, convenient source. , Looking ahead and helping to prepare for your- various needs is a big part of our business.

Mount Vernon, March 10.—A group of students form the Algona public schools will attend the performance of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" at Cornell College Friday evening March 21, it has been learned here. Miss Ruth Messenger, a graduate of Cornell and an instructor in the Algona high echoed, has made arrangements for he students to attend. The annual sophomore class produc- ions of the Shakespearian dramas at Cornell College are directed by Jewell Bothwell Tull and Professor Clyde Tull. This is the third tragedy to be at- empted by student amateur actors lere. "Othello" and "Romeo and Julet" have been given previously as named Verne Jo-1^ 8 been in and are were held in the .es? Three Carlton hotel. tacks were made on combinations of wealth, trusts, the attitude of the Hoover administration concerning the tariff, farm relief, the industrial depression and unemployment, and the alleged encroachment of the executive on the rights of the legislative branch of the government. • • * In the first large national gathering of self-style "progressives" since 1924 "progressive opinion of the country" was denned as opposed to "any blanket repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment which does not substitute a rational system of public control over the manufacture and sale of alcohol." Sentiment of this independent political element was also represented; to be against federal assumption of inforce- ment responsibility in the states and as favoring recognition of Soviet Russia. On the eve of the meeting of the progressive groups of the republican and democratic parties, the republican national committee called for a holiday In politics in order to let the country recover its economic balance. The statement was looked upon as designed to counteract the activities of the progressives, whose two-day session was filled with denunciation of President Hoover and his administration. What the practical politician chiefly sees in the progressive conference is an effort, more or less conspicuous, to drive the democratic party toward the progressive side of things in the next campaign. If one accepts the pronouncement of the leaders that a third party is not their aim, there seems no other objective In sight. And evidence of their sincerity about the third party Is given In the refusal to invite Mr. Dewey, its leading advocate. • • • Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt of New York emerged at the end of the first session of the conference of "progressives" as an outstanding candidate for their support in the presidential campaign period ahead. By the process of addressing a sympathetic message to the conference, pointing at the same time to his own state program, Governor Roosevelt was regarded as jlalnly seeking to ally himself with ;he "progressive" cause. His bid for lid in this sector of public opinion found a cordial enough reception to jut his name into relief In the specu- .ation over presidjential candidates, although this subject was tabooed in *he formal agenda of the conference. » • » The oldest member of congress, with ;hc longest reco-.d of continuous service, departed when Frederick H. Gilett's term as a senator ended March 4. Mr. Gillett Is eighty years old and le had served in congress, one house or the other, fdr thirty-eight years without interruption. Representative Henry Allen Cooper, who died the other day, came into congress at the ame time In 1893 with Mr. Glllett, but Mr. Cooper was beaten for re-election >ne term a few years ago. Now the .can of both houses Is Gilbert N. iaugen, famed for various farm relief Mils which bore his name. But Mr. Algona Rifle Club Granted Charter. The Algona rifle club has been issued a charter by the National Rifle Association, according to announcement made at the headquarters of the association in Washington, D. C. The officers of the new club are: Torkel Hill, president; G. D. Brundage, vice president; L. C. Reding, treasurer; L. W. Green, secretary; J. Clyde Smith, executive officer; D. E. Dewel, publicity officer. The Algona Rifle Club is one of more than 2500 active rifle shooting clubs affiliated with the National Rifle Association. The members will now start practice under the coaching of Mr. Smith, the executive officer. Many civilian rifle clubs, such as the Algona Rifle Club are chartered and functioning in high schools, summer camps, Y. M. C. A.'s, and Y. W. O. A.'S. Industrial plants, American Le;ion posts, churches,, community cen- ters and other organizations have senior clubs operating under charters of the National Rifle Association. Members of the Algona Rifle club will fire for medals awarded by the National Rifle Association and matches will probably be arranged In the near future with nearby clubs. Esther Bishop is Honored at S. U. I. Esther Bishop, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Bishop of Algona, was recently elected to PI Lambda Theta, an honorary educational sorority at the state university. In order to become a member one must be recommended by two instructors and have an average of B or over. Miss Bishop- who is a senior in the liberal arts college, was elected also as representative of the home economics department to the annual Iowa dinner at the Memorial Union. More than settings by students of the an; dep ment and costumes from a Chicago house add to the finish of the staging. (Livermore Man Obeyed Orders. Gazette: That was the command that was given to Mr. Gilson last Friday night as he was on his way from the Morrall garage to his home in the Roepke residence in the north part of town. Mr. Gilson is the mechanic at the Morrall garage. He had been working late in the shop and about eleven-thirty he started for home, carrying a can of gasoline He had Just crossed the M. & St. L. tracks near the depot, and as he neared the little old lumber office a man stepped around from the north side of the building and gave the command. Mr. Gilson dropped his gasoline can and complied, as the gun was jammed painfully into his ribs. He had no money on him, and the disappointed thug then searched him for his watch, but even that had been left at home, so he got nothing. Therefore he was ordered to proceed onward, and to "not look back." He picked up his can of gas and moved on. a New Ford Rock Farmer Was Badly Injured. Fenton Reporter: William Rath met with a bad accident last Thursday at his farm home south of town. A team of horses, which he had hitched to a spreader, became frightened and ran into a stack of corn fodder, with the result that one of the horses fell on the tongue which broke off, a piece running into its side. While helping the horse to its feet, he was kickec severely on the side of his face, cutting a long gash down the side of his Jaw and neck. This wound had to be thre3-ply stitched, twenty-five stitches being taken. He is getting along as well as can be expected at this writing. Walter Johnson of Algona has been doing his farm work for him since the accident. iaugen is a mere youngster compared o Mr. Gillett, who had thirty-eight ears of continuous service to his credit, whereas Mr. Haugen has only thirty-two. » » » Edward E.

The fire department was called out Saturday morning to extinguish a small roof blaze on the E. J. Hough residence on North Thorington street. There was little damage done. This Is the old Purvis home. THE substantial worth of the new Ford is reflected in its good performance, economy and reliability. Its stamina and endurance are particularly apparent in sections where bad roads and severe weather put a heavy extra burden on the automobile. In less than a year a new Ford Tudor Sedan was driven more than seventy-three thousand miles over a difficult route. The operating cost per mile was very low and practically the only expense for repairs was for new pifiton rings and a new bearing for the generator. The car carried an average load of 1200 pounds oC mail and was driven 250 miles daily. "The Ford has never failed to go when I was ready," writes one of the three mail carriers operating the car. "The starter did the trick last winter even at 34 degrees below zero. The gas runs about 20 miles per gallon. At times I pull a trailer whenever I have a bulky load." Many other Ford owners report the same satisfactory performance. Every part has been made to endure — to eerve you faithfully and well for many thousands o£ miles.
