At the evening program, Harold Hughes, also a candidate for governor, was on the speaking program. Hughes, in his remarks, pointed out that Iowa has had a drop in its state treasury surplus of from 46 to 18 million, and advocated the necessity of the state taking a good look at its entire present tax- structure with a view to overhauling and streamlining it. He pointed out that under the last Democratic governor, Herschel Loveless, the state treasury surplus was raised from about 18 million to nearly 50 million, and at the same time the state sales tax was reduced from 2'2 to 2 percent. "Our present governor has suggested that we sell ears of Iowa corn to tourists, put up signs warning of danger from Indians in the Tama area, and conduct a baby contest at the State Fair, as ways of improving the state," said Hughes. "I maintain it is time we got off the juvenile Erbe Derby and down to the business of running sound; efficient state government that can keep us fiscally solvent instead of bankrupt." All other state candidates present also spoke briefly.

Hutchins, Manager Algona (south of Penneys) Monday and Wednesday Forest City (\V. of Forester Hotel) Tuesday and Friday |j The most precious gifts on Mother's Day are FREE WE once knew a rising young businessman who gave his wife a wonderful Mother's Day present; breakfast in bed and the firm fatherly care of the youngsters all day. WE once knew a little girl who determined she'd give her mommy a scrumptous gift; she learned a poem! THEN there were the three married daughters who arrived at Mother's bright and early on Her Day and cleaned the house from top to bottom. One of them even darned Dad's socks. A busy executive found he wasn't too busy to write his mother a ten-page letter, telling her everything he'd been doing A teen-age youngster swept out the garage, cut the grass, put up the screens and finished in a blaze of glory by making his own room ship-shape. ANOTHER family took Mother on a picnic and for once they let her pick out the spot at which she wanted to stop. JOHN flew home for a visit. Mary called from California. And these were the best presents ever. All of which proves you don't have to deal with us to celebrate Mother's Day; you have to deal with yourself. Of course, if you're topping things off with a mysterious, gift-wrapped box, we're more than proud to be represented. But we can't sell you the most precious thing in the world to your Mother— your time — your thoughts — yourself! The Chrischilles Store "HOME OF QUALITY SINCE 1870" SBALY POSTURP '*£.'
