Several countries In Europe owe the United States many billions of dollar loaned to them during the World war A few of them arc paying some of thi Interest while others are paying noth Ing and will pay nothing If they can get out of it. If this money was in the United States now it could be used to a big advantage and there would be no depression. It will be remembered that Henry Ford sent, at his own expense, a peace ship to Europe during the war and was going to establish peace In a few months. His efforts may have been sincere but were a total failure. Mr. Ford was said to be very patriotic. He Is classed as one of the wealthiest men In the world anc his money was all made in America He should be patriotic and love his country. However, when conditions here were not exactly to his liking he Invested a large sum of money In Eur. opean countries and established Fore plants where his automobile is being manufactured. Ford has always been known as a good employer. He has paid good wages and strikes are unknown in his plant which speaks very highly for him, but with all this, a good many American thinkers feel that so long as his wealth was accumulated In America that it is not showing an appreciation to American labor and his country when the establishment of plants in Europe deprive American labor of more or less employment. Mi- Ford Is not alone In this as numerous other industries have done the same thing but he perhaps is receiving more criticism than are the corporations that are doing this same thing. NEW CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS. Tlie plan voted by the house leaves the old Tenth district just as it was with Kossuth, Emmet, Palo Alto, Winnebago, Hancock, Humboldt, Pocahontas, Webster, Calhoun, Boone, Greene, Carroll and Crawford counties, and calls it the Eighth district. This Will no doubt meet with the approval of the people living in this district. The old monkey wrench district is cut up The old Third extended from Dubuque to Wright county, but In this the new plan Dubuque is thrown in the Second district. It is very probable that the senate will approve of the plan. Most of the changes suggested are that lliey do not contain too many large cities, but In the plan voted by the house the Second district will contain Dubuque, Clinton, Davenport and Cedar Rapids. The river counties are mainly democratic and this arrangement may give the democrats a better chance to secure a congressman than was possible under the present arrangement. News and Comment. They say charity should begin at home. Maybe that's true in tax reduction. Mason City reports a man who is to buy dog licenses for needy boys and girls. One consolation for the voters Is that there will be no more elections this year. It costs the taxpayers of Iowa about fifteen million dollars a year to run the state. Pretty expensive outfit. On e thing the legislature should guard against Is being penny wise and pound foolish In their efforts to cut expenses. Knute Rockne was Just a regular he- man who loved to work with boys and make them like it. He was a real sportsman. The federal land banks received possession and sold 2736 farms in 1930. Were these banks organized to help the farmer? I f no tax changes are made in Iowa Dan Turner will receive a lot of blame OTHER EDITORS WET OR DRY. Garner Signal: In a recent editorial from the Register & Leader in reference to the platforms of the two major parties, on the wet and dry Issue In the coming presidential election of 1932, we quote the following: "With the republicans campaigning as drys and the democrats as wets, the election should be a fairly accurate referendum on prohibition***. "Such a referendum. is needed to show Just how the American people stand on this subject. The election of last fall showed that the sentiment for prohibition repeal has been increased, but to what extent has It increased? •**» The above statement that any election between republicans and democrats would be "a fairly accurate referendum on prohibition," is nothing more nor less than simple twaddle. There are too many very wet rock-ribbed republicans who would not vote for a democrat, whether wet or dry, under-any condition and vice versa. The Register says that the sentiment for prohibition repeal has increased but to what extent is the Increase? The only way to find out to what extent it has increased is to have a referendum vote of the people, unhampered by party politics, upon the question of wet or dry. There never was a vote by the people of Iowa on the eighteenth "amendment as to whether the state was wet or dry. Our state legislature and Iowa congressmen voted Iowa dry. There Is no reason to believe that they voted the true sentiment of the commonwealth of Iowa upon this question any more than they have upon numerous other occasions. At the present tune our Iowa legislature is doing Its very best to defeat Governor Dan Turner's Income tax bill, yet, no one would have th» audacity to claim that the rank and file of the voters of the state were not overwhelmingly for Dan Turner and his ideas upon the equitable way to settle the tax problem. Why not leave political parties out of the program altogether and have a referendum election upon the wet and dry issue and thereby decide for good and all the wishes of Iowa's citizenry. If a majority of the people of this state are for the present law, it will be much easier for the authorities to enforce it. If the majority of the voters are against the present law, there should be a change, if as we claim, we are a democratic government run by and for the people. Tax Reform Should Begin at Home First Sac Sun: Governor Turner took tune over ft radio hook up the other night to urge the passage of an Income tax bill, which he has characterized as one of the most important issues before the people of Iowa today. The fact that the passage of an income tax bill cannot possibly reduce property tax in Sac City more than two per cent shows how "very important" the matter is after all. The importance all lies in the fact that Mr. Turner so definite-, ly hooked himself up with the income tax in the recent campaign that the defeat of this measure would be a serious blow to his political fortunes. Whether or not an income tax law is passed iu the state of Iowa is a matter of only slight moment to the people of Iowa. The far greater issue Is that of tax reduction and tax equalization, both of which seem to have been shoved into the background in the clubbing campaign that has been used on the legislature in an effort to get that body to agree to an income tax law. A property tax reduction of two per cent will not satisfy a tax-ridden people. The administration will have to have more than that to show for Its winter's work or the people of lown are going to be disappointed. The fact is that thousands of voters who saw in the 1930 campaign promises of an Eden of taxation bliss are already wondering If all that propaganda was justified. Turning from the possibility of shifting a small portion of the state tax levy to the possibilities of actual saving of money in other directions the situation becomes more interesting and hopeful. For Instance, the Sac City schools (and probably every similar school district) can curtail its program very slightly in some of the non-es- j sentials and make a greater real sav-l ing that the whole income tax program can shift from one shoulder to the other. Without trying to dictate the policies of the board of education, the Sun suggests that the elimination of the art department, a slight curtailment of athletics and the elimination of the normal training* department will e able the district to save the salaries of two teachers and that will be real tax reduction, . Art Is a fine thing to teach in the public schools if we can afford it. So is printing and masonry and the teaching of .various other trades. But they are all superficial and have no real part in the educational program of the ordinary public school system. Normal training, the Sun learns, is becoming less popular year by year, because there are already far too many teachers being turned out each year. Along with that the local school might well get rid of the smattering of agriculture which is taught in a school like Sac City's. Agricutlure thoroughly taught through the Smith-Hughes system is a far different matter. The Sun has no desire to point a finger of guilt at the public school system and say, "You are the one that is responsible for our high taxes; you ought to retrench." That is true in a measure, because our school taxes hi Sac City are too high, due in a large measure to the money required .to pay interest and principal on building bonds contracted some years ago. But the schools are merely an example of what might be done in reducing taxes. The city and county also could make some savings. And the whole point Is that tax reform must begin at home. If we want real tax reduction we must quit chasing after the few mills that the legislaure is squabbling about, and look right in our front yard. Washington News By Fred Holmes, Wash. Correspondent for the U. D. M.-R. TAXING MORTGAGED-PROPERTY. Sac Sun: Since the Sun last week advanced the age-old theory of taxing only the equity which a real estate owner has in his property, and allowing him a reduction for the mortgage on the place, a number of readers have remarked that the plan would be eminently fan-. A comment on the Idea comes from Representative George C. Stanzel, who remarks that "it is the most fair and just plan I have ever seen in print anywhere." Mr. Stanzel says that "one of the most unjust taxes is the tax on that part of the property which *e taxpayer does not own." As to the other plan advanced by the Sun last week, that of making a note null and void unless it is annually stamped the assessor for taxation, one ocal student of government thinks ;hat it also is very just and fair, but it would raise the argument that it would drive money out of the state. 'But as far as I am concerned," says this Sac City man, "I would be in favor of telling all holders of notes who want .o escape their just share of taxation ;o take their money and get out of '.he state." The Sun wonders why some of these eglslators who are so anxious to im- Drovfe "our antiquated taxation system" have not Introduced, bills cover- ng these subjects. Like the Elliott bill which would make a flat reduction of five per cent on all levies the next 'ew years, such legislation would ba ;enuine tax relief that would make all he bogus income tax schemes fade in- o insignificance. JOURNALISTIC NIT WITS. Swea City Herald: A curious turn in he editorial mind is illustrated by the .cribe who loudly lament increasing axes and waste in government yet urns squarely around to combac law- essness. It is true the proposal is to upport such a police from highway unds, yet if there is money available or such schemes why not prorate it among the school districts of the state Kansas City, Mo., April 6.—I am led x> remark that "its funny what a whale of a difference Just a few miles make."

SCHOOL TEACHER TROUBLES. Esthervllle Vindicator: The superintendent of the Swea City consolidated school resigned and there are 36 applications for the position which pays $2,600 a year. This beats anything we have heard of when the operator of a farm resigns or a renter moves. his damdest to get the legislators to act. The Iowa senate practically killed tlit- bill to repeal the $500 expense bill, but we will bet our old overcoat that the present members will not file a bill for this session. We will take our chances on Iowa prairis with an occasional windstorm or blizzard to the earthquakes in California, Mexico and Central America and the storms that hit Florida. Iowa is becoming more and more disgusted with the state university probe. If they have anything on the school why don't they spring it? It looks as though a few disgusted fellows who could not put over some graft on the management are making all the trouble.

Upper Des Moines-Republican: Here we are again sending you a check for the back subscription of $2.60 for the paper and want you to continue sending the paper and we'll send ' another check later on. We cannot be without the Upper Des Moines-Republican for that's the only way we hear any news from Iowa. It's hard times here but we will try and scratch enough money to keep the paper coming. We have fine weather and will soon be planting potatoes on Good Friday. Sending our best regards to all the Iowa friends, especially Mr. and Mrs. Hovey. We see he is still busy, Your truly, Mr. and Mrs. Matt Banwart. over the effect of the recent action ol prohibition enforcement law upon the national conventions of both parties next year. In Kansas they are very much exercised over the fate of then- own "Charlie" Curtis. Will the "powers that be" make him again Herbert Hoover's running-mate in 1932? If not (and the fates are good to the republican party next year) who will supplant him as presiding officer of the senate? Most of all, does he like his Job, anyway, and would he prefer to end his political days on the floor instead of in the chair? « * • Other mid-western states, confronted with no peculiarly local problems, are Interested in the prospective tax boost, in the effect of President Hoover's veto of the Muscle Shoals bill, in where the farm relief airplane is go- Ing to land, In who will be the next democratic standard-bearer, and in that seemingly vital question, what will be the attitude of the 1932 democratic convention on the subject of prohibition. * * * What particularly engrossed the Ohio politicians was the report that a group of republican senators, actuated by a suggestion made by President Hoover Before he departed on his Caribbean cruise, has undertaken conferences on a program of reorganizing the party's national committee. Incidentally, predictions were made by some senators that the development was to be expected of an aggressive campaign to bring invention delegates, including those 'rom the south, into solid alignment behind the president in the campaign next year. * * * The first step which this group of senators advocates is the selection of a new chairman of the committee to succeed Senator Fess, who accepted the post last year when Claudius H. Huston resigned. It was then hoped that the senator would be found acceptable to all factions. It is reported that he intended to relinquish the chairmanship before congress met last December, but as no successor satisfactory to the president has been found, he was prevailed upon to remain. Early this year he again was reported anxious to quit and go on a long vacation, but at the last moment changed his plans. * « • Since the adjournment of congress, Senator Fess has said nothing about many of the elements of a war on recalcitrant states. • • * Over In Kansas, just across the river from where this is being written, there are many who assert that President Hoover's ulterior motive In "vacation- Ing" in Porto Rico was to bring Governor Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., into the limelight as a preliminary step in grooming him for the vice presidential nomination next year. Aroused by reports that the president is seriously considering our Porto Rican governor as his running mate in 1932, friends of Vice President Charles Curtis have determined to have a show-down now that the president has returned to Washington. • • * • In the event that the president expresses a desire to-change horses in the middle of the stream, so to speak, Mr. Curtis is expected to step aside and enter the race in Kansas for his old seat in the senate, now held by Senator George McGill, democrat. No Intimation of his purposes has been forthcoming from the vice president, but it is intimated that he will not submit to his elimination from the executive branch of the government without something of a struggle. :';,:,. •-"; •. • :.._ffiA; ,.'*''* ;* <;J '•;'"!•'"••'• 1 ' L ' Borne 'political observers hereftl they see in Secretary Hurley's endorsement of Vice President Curtis still further proof of the Oklahoman's availability for the chairmanship of the national republican committee. Within a few hours after he had returned to his desk, following Ills cruise of the Caribbean with the president, Hurley let it be known that he would support Curtis for renomlnation in 1932. He made the statement in response to questions regarding reports that he might be Mr. Hoover's next running mate. He asserted that he had supported Curtis for the vice presidency two occasions, and expected to back him again ig the Kansan desired the nomination. Meanwhile, it may be stated with authority that the president has not definitely decided on a successor to Senator Simeon D. Fess, of Ohio, the present chairman of the national com. nittee, nor given the slightest intimation of his preference as regards his running mate for 1932. Children Urged to Avoid Railroad Tracks, Pointing out that fatalities to trespassers in the United States outnumber those caused by train accidents eight to one, O. B. Vilas, general manager of the Chicago & North Western Railway, urged children to avoid the three most common causes of railroad accidents—walking along tracks, cross- Ing tracks at points other than the crossings, ahd hitching onto trains—in a speech given this week before a Chicago suburban school assembly. "More than 2800 children die in the United States every year from injuries that occur mostly In the home. A larpe number of these children are burned playing with matches, around stoves, or from Inflammable liquids placed hear fires. All these accidents are caused by someone else's carelessness. One Should keep matches In a metal box, keep open flres and grates protected, and not allow children to play near fires, with matches or around gas, "Commander Richard Byrd is a splendid example of thoughtfulness in his flight over the South Pole. He prepared everything In advance and took every precaution that no man would be lost through carelessness. This same spirit of preparedness and self-discipline which enabled him to achieve such wonderful results on his trip is applicable to you in everyday life. We on the railroad are carrying out a vigorous campaign among our employees to cut down grade crossing and other accidents, but this problem must be shared by every man, woman and child. It applies to every activity. It is a problem for school, community and nation, Just as it Is of the individual. Accidents will stop only when the days comes that every one accepts his full share of responsibility." Wesley Couple Was Married Tuesday. Wesley, April 7. Special: A pretty church wedding took place Tuesday morning, April 7, at eight-thirty a. m. when Charles E. Kerrlns, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kerrins, Sr., and Miss Edna Loebig, youngest daughter of Eugene Loebig, were united in marriage with Rev. George F. Wessling officiating in the ring ceremony. They were attended by Miss Eunice Studer and Lewis Loebig, cousin and brother of the Bride. Following the wedding ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Kerrlns went to the home of the bride where a wedding breakfast was served to the bridal couple and immediate relatives of both parties. The bride is one of Wesley's desrved- ly popular young ladies and by her sweet disposition and accomplishments is well fitted to assume the duties of a wife. Mr. Kerrins is one of Wesley's well known conscientious boys and will now assume the responsibility of operating the large farm'three miles east of town known as the Jack Lawless place. The best wishes are extended to this fine young couple.

Responding to the two-to- one vote of the electorate last autumn, the legislature had no choice other than to accept the obvious wish of the voters. The governor's position is much the same. Senator Borah maintains that this action is "downright nullification." And "nullification," It will be recalled, is the word that aroused popular feeling to fever heat in the fifties. They say, over in Illinois, that even though state repeal of dry laws be construed as nullification the fact remains that we have in America no means of forcing a state into an action it refuses to take. Nothing short of military force can be found to bring pressure on one of the 48 commonwealths, and to this limit none is prepared to go at present—although Amos W. W. Woodcock's dry army has Good Bouts to be Held at Mason City.
