Reader Comment A "THANK YOU" A special "Thank Yon" from the Officers anil Enlisted-men of Battery B 1st How Bn 194th Arty, la ARNG, Alpona, la. for helping to make our "Muster Day" a complete success. Capt. Howard W. Stephensnn To the Editor: Schools - How Big? Do you believe in bigger and bigger schools, getting farther and farther apart, controlled by the Iowa State Supt. of Public Instruction, who is appointed Instead of elected, and who seems to care not how far our children must travel to school. He also seems to believe big schools are better schools simply lie- cause they are big, and who has been operating under a state law that has been declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of Iowa. The court said this law gave arbitrary and discriminatory power to the state superintendent in state aid payments. We sincerely hope you don't believe in a continuation of this type of school administration. However, if you believe smaller schools can also be good schools, if you want your children to be individuals and not just cogs in a big wheel, if you are interested in what size high schools have the most dropouts and the most Juvenile delinquency, if you want to preserve your school and community, if you are interested in knowing tinore about some of the things the State Supt. of Public Instruction has already done under a law declared unconstitutional, then you should, right now, write to Nor ris G. Only Jr. President of Iowa School Organization, Inc., Marathon, Iowa and enclose $2.00 for membership. This organization is working to keep schools a sensible size and locally controlled. They are going to fight proposed legislation which Is trying to restore the power of the Supt. of Public Instruction, which the Supreme Court of Iowa held unconstitutional. This new legislation would likely also be unconstitutional, however, by the time the court could act upon it we will be that much farther down the road to the master plan which staggers the Imagination. I can't find words to express the urgency and Importance of everyone contacting your senator and representative Immediately to let your view be known. Also ask them to support this investigation of the State Dept. of Public Instruction which has been advocated by some of the legislatures.

See us for coverage now. BLOSSOM INSURANCE Phone 295-2735 FOR COMPLETE INSURANCE . COVERAGE Algona, Iowa KNOW WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU •w. MEDICARE Three-fourths of the people — a recent Gallup Poll discovered — DO NOT know the facts about "MEDICARE." It is important for you to know what's in this government package. "MEDICARE" is the popular name for the KING-ANDERSON Bill, now before Congress. This bill would INCREASE payroll taxes on all wage-earners and their employers. It would hit hardest those least able to pay. The $5,600-a-year worker would pay as much tax as the $75,000 executive. "MEDICARE" would offer LIMITED hospitalization and nursing home care 'and SOME diagnostic and home nursing services to everyone over 65 - the wealthy, as well as those in need. "MEDICARE" would not cover physicians' services or surgical charges. It would not cover drugs outside the hospital or nursing home. It would not jover x-ray or other laboratory services not connected with hospitalization. DOES 'MEfilCARE' COVER COST: Of All Drugi? Of Phyikiani? Of Surgtoni? Of Hoipilalt Btyond 60 Doyi? Of Nurting Hom«i Beyond 60 Doyi? ELDERCARE Before Congress RIGHT NOW is the HERLONG-CURTIS ELDERCARE BILL the best answer to the health care needs of the elderly. ELDERCARE would cover hospital and nursing home charges AND physicians' services surgical costs, drugs in and out of hospitals - MEDICARE would not. ELDERCARE would cost taxpayers far less than compulsory MEDICARE. It would not spend your tax dollars to provide benefits for the wealthy. ELDERCARE would be financed by federal and state funds through the KERR-MILLS MAA Program, which is functioning effectively in Iowa. Each person 65 or more would obtain an insurance policy for medical and hospital care. Some would pay nothing. Others would pay part of the cost of their policies, dependinq on their incomes. To apply, an elderly person would merely submit a simple income statement. ELDERCARE matches dollars with need. It DOES NOT spend millions of tax dollars to provide for those who are able 'and who prefer to take care of themselves ••••••••••_ DOES ELDERCARE COVER COST: Of Dru B «? Of Phyiicigni? Of Surgton.? Of HoipilgU (All N»»d«d)7 Of Nurting Homtt (All Ntidtd)? -•••••••.•..•.•^^^^^^^^^H IF YOU AGREE ELDERCARE IS THE SENSIBL^PPROACH TO PROVIDING HEALTH CARE shown, or, better yet, send a personal note.
