Upper Dtt Maine* Tuesday, June 5, 1962 tiff ev Pe$fllome$ CORN SURPLUS REDUCED The U.S.D.A. has announced that stocks of corn in storage have declined over a period of the past six months by 8 percent of the total, compared with corn in storage a year earlier. Over half of this was corn under loan or owned by the C.C.C. while the remainder was privately owned. HOW WOULD THIS WORK? A bl-parlisan commission including two former presidents and three unsuccessful candidates for the presidency (Eisenhower, Truman, Nixon, Stevenson and Dewey) has endorsed a proposal for tax incentives to spur political con tributions. Under this proposal (which thus far is not Wh^vTwe may think of the feed grain beyond the Amending stage) donations for political purposes (to elect candidates) would be allowed as income tax deductions, but not more than $10 for an individual, and $20 for a husband-wife team, jointly. There were some other recommendations, such as corporation donations of not to exceed $1,000, etc. The reasoning behind the proposal is clear enough. Political campaigns cost a tremendous amount of money, and must be financed from some source. The usual, ordinary donations are seldom sufficient to finance a real campaign. Thus, the groups with money to spend and special interests to protect, are in a position to more or less finance a candidate's campaign and perhaps pull the strings after the election as a result. Thus the intent is good. However, making donations eligible for tax deductions could lead to another whole string of abuses, and in the case of the larger donations the ''string pulling" still exists. A donation of $1,000 would carry a considerable amount of weight, the $10 donation probably very little, in decisions made after an election. But the proposal is to be presented to Congressional committee for possible introduction as a new amendment to our tax laws. * * * "SENIOR CITIZEN" OBJECTS One of the recent letters to the editor in a Des Moines paper has a touch of real humor, and points up our inclination to use fancy labels in terms of modern living. This letter is from a "senior citizen" who objects to being called a "senior citizen". He says: "We don't mind being called old duffers, or old buzzards, or old bags; these have been time- honored epithets which youths have always applied to us. They are proper and honest names." "Senior citizen is some goo-brain's idea of avoiding the nasty truth. It reminds us of an undertaker who refers to a coffin as a burial case." "We have the consoling thought that the icky-goo who coined the word senior citizen will be as old as we are if he lives long enough, and it will serve him damned well right." Now there's a "senior citizen" willing to take age as a matter of course and without any buttering up, and it sort of makes sense, too. What's wrong with a mellow, sensible, kindly, old age without a lot of unnecessary foliage ? LIQUOR-BY-THE-DRINK Emmetsburg Democrat — We do not question the sincerity of those who oppose liquor-by •the-drink. We have good friends among them in Emmetsburg and elsewhere. But we got lost when some of them compare legalizing liquor-by-the-drink to legalizing murder or larceny. There's quite a difference. Ill E. Call Street—Ph. CY 4-3535—Algona, Iowa Nobody wants to legalize homicide, except pos- program, if looks as though it is achieving one of its major goals, which is to reduce the excess corn in storage over sensible reserves required. + * + "GET ACQUAINTED DAY" Next Friday will be "Get Acquainted Day" in Algona. Free trips via bus and tours of four industrial firms in Algona will be offered, starting at 9 a.m. We hope that there will be a" reasonably good response to the offer, from folks in the area around us as well as Algonans themselves. It is sometimes surprising to find that many a community of our size has its own industrial development which is so taken for granted that it is overlooked in general thinking. Our eyes often focus on distant horizons and wishful hoping that we can bring in more and newer industrial enterprises; yet right now, in the present, we have a number that are strong, going concerns worth knowing more about. This past month the observance of Iowa Beef Month took place, and Dean Barnes, extension service director for the county, released the interesting information that beef cattle were a 14"j million dollar industry in Kossuth county In 1959, a fact that town and city residents might easily overlook. And, some of our own small and medium-sized industries are in the same category. Hop a bus — take a ride — find out what's going on around the edges in the way of industry in Algona. * * * There's the story about the widow who changed the epitaph on her husband's gravestone from "Rest In Peace" — to "Rest In Peace — Till We Meet Again."
