2-Algona (la.) Uppftf D*» Maine* Tuesday, June 26, 1962 tippet flesfllomes II L HOW TO FINANCE NEW INDUSTRY **» A new extreme in the use of local tax lures to attract new industry appears to have occur- red recently in the tiny hamlet of Champ, Mo. As reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "A $3,250,000 revenue bond issue for construction of a manufacturing plant was approved without dissent by eight voters of the village -of Champ." The paper further explained that Champ contains only 10 adults eligible to vote. Yet this handful of people, operating as a village, plan to issue $3U million of bonds-and they have already found a market for the bonds with a Kansas City investment firm. The Post-Dispatch also explained the two tax gimmicks involved: First, interest on the Champ bonds will be "tax free," not subject to Federal income taxes; and it is planned to pay off the bonds from rental of the new factory, to be built for the R. C. Can Co., makers of fiber oil cans. Second, since the can company's new plant "will be municipally owned, it will escape most taxes paid by privately-owned industrial plants," the Post-Dispatch explained. • * * * "DUMMY" CANDIDATES Grundy Register — It was amusing to listen " on primary election night to the returns over TV and radio. The announcers seem to delight in the great victory some of the candidates were getting. Two of these "glorious" victories were Hickenlooper's victory for U. S. Senator over a candidate who had served a prison term for failure to register, and who was charged with having lost his citizenship. He was a made "lo order dummy candidate who received only a few votes and who should have not received •any at all. But the air broadcaster made him •appear like a real candidate. And there was the perennial candidate Ernest Seeman from Waterloo who put himself up to run against H. R. Gross. Seeman has run _for nearly every pulic office in the book and has never registered as high as 5^ of the votes. The broadcasters when they reported the vote for congress from the 3rd district made it sound ,as if H. R. Gross was winning another "great victory." We are sure our congressman didn't 'ask Seeman to run against him, nor that Hickenlooper had anything to do with getting an opponent to run against him at the primary just so he could come out of the primary with a ,,"big victory." There ought to be a (aw to prevent these nuisance candidates from getting their names ,on a primary or a general election ballot. * * * Trouble that looks like a mountain from a •distance, usually is only a hill when you get to it. — The Woodbine Twiner. JUST WHO REALLY IS THE "ENEMY OF BUSINESS"? We're a little perplexed to read and re read statements here and there inferring tha President Kennedy is "an enemy of business.' Nothing much along this line was said until he forcibly quashed a potential rise in the price o 1 steel. The proposed price increase has certainly not seemed necessary for the well-being of stee companies, most of whom since that time have issued new financial statements showing very nice profit margins with the prices prevailing. However, the mc.'i coplrolling steel also control a great man/ other tho-is, and since that hassle the "Kennedy is against business" image has been presented over and over. This we do not believe. But we would like to ask a question or two as to just who IS against business. And the business to which we refer is the small town business with which all of us are familiar. There was before the Congress, an Administration farm bill. This bill was designed to set up a permanent farm program with controls of acreage plantings adjusted to conform with existing surplus, plus a guaranteed price level for the producer. This bill is the type of thing that can mean economic stability for the entire middle-western agricultural area. With such stability, the business conditions of the area likewise improve. This the administration favors. And who opposed this program? Let us quote from a letter inserted as testimony in hearings now going on in Washington. It is from Martin Sorkin, a former economic consultant in the Ezra Taft Benson administration of agriculture, and NOW AN ECONOMIC CONSULTANT FOR COMMERCIAL SOLVENTS CORP., the firm that is involved in the Billie Sol Estes financial structure and manipulations. Mr. Sorkin wrote a letter to the president of Commercial Solvents in which he said (under date of Sept. 11, 1961): "The Republican national committee and "WHAT'S FREEDOM. MOTHER?

The objective of this meeting was to develop the basis for a continuing attack on the Administration's efforts on the farm front. It was agreed it was not the responsibility of the Republicans to PROPOSE SOLUTIONS but to criticize the Administration wherever feasible. This included varying the basis for the attack DEPENDING UPON THE AREA POLITICAL SITUATION." The capital letters are ours, not the writer of the tetter. To reason this out, it appears to us that the Kennedy administration is trying to help the farm economic situation, and in turn the business men of the smaller towns and cities in rural areas. The opposition is doing everything it can to OPPOSE this program. the observance.

But somewhere he lost track of the art of keeping lab on private finances. If only Mickey had included a good business course in his education, things mioht have been different. In the meantime, the government is asking about $106,686 it claims is due m back income taxes, and three ex-wives are asking about their combined monthly alimony payments of $5,000. No wonder he s m trouble, but we still say he should have been able to come up with a little more than $500 in assets from an income through his best years that totaled almost four million dollars.

Two hearings were slated to be held in Judge G. W. Stillman's juvenile court — and a total of 10 juveniles were involved! One group of seven youngsters ranged in age from nine to IB and the other group of three were IB and 17 year olds. The latest destructive acts ran the gamut from broken windows to completely ruining railroad signal lights along the Milwaukee Road right-of-way. The district probation officer reportedly had more than he coul:l handle in the way of probation cases. * * # George Lee of Humboldt hail little trouble winning the Algona Amateur Golf Tournament with a 185 total, which beat second piace finisher Don Webb by seven strokes.
