Hawarden Independent (Newspaper) - April 30, 1970, Hawarden, Iowa * v EDITORIALS STREET TALK By R. 0. B. It has been good to have real spring weather the past few days. In fact, it has been almost like summer. Taking a quick drive around town Tuesday evening we noticed varied spring activities taking place— children playing, people working on their homes and yards, people planting gardens, lovers taking strolls, and various ages taking rides in their autos. They say April showers bring May flowers and, if this is true, there should be a lot of flowers this year. Memorial Day comes on Saturday this year: so everyone will have a two- day holiday. Next year several holidays will fall on Monday, giving some three- day holidays for everyone to enjoy. PARKS The city and the park board should be commended on the two new shelter houses, the concrete play areas in various parts of town, and the added playground equipment. A resident made a suggestion this week, and we agree with her, that since French park is used a good deal by that area of town, some playground equipment plus a shelterhouse would add much to the use of that park. Few small trees and shrubs would enhance the park and the whole neighborhood. Also needed are lights for the various concrete play areas, although daylight savings time extends the time they can be used during summer months., COLLEGE SITE Also noted that the college hill is taking on a pleasing look with last fall's and summer's landscaping projects starting to take hold this spring. , The country has - started leveling an area east of the college for a new county maintenance shed and storage area. When completed, the old shed will be up for sale for other uses. Eventually, according to a master plan, the city will have a new water tower on college hill to help alleviate city water problems. It is a shame the long hopcKl for curb and gutter project in the north part of town has to wait another year. If it could have been completed this year, blacktopping could have been applied next summer. Once this area is curbed and hardsurfaced, along with blacktopping by the county on the farm- to- market road past the college, it will become a highly desirable residential area. When one travels around the country he comes back to Hawarden with much appreciation for the town's attributes. AllHawardenites should have pride in the community and do their part in helping it continue to progress, APRIL 30 TAX DEADLINE FOR EMPLOYERS Employers have an Important tax deadline on April 30, 1970, according to John F, Hanlon, District Director of Internal Revenue in Iowa, This is the last day for re* porting a- id payinj both Sojlal Security and withheld incdme taxes for the quarter ending March 31, 1970, Employer? should report these taxes on the pre » address « ed Form W mailed them by JRS, They have until May 10, J97Q w> file ihslr returns if ths entire quarterly tape liability has b § en deposited on time in a Federal Reserve or authorised . If the balance due with the retwra is more than $ 1QQ, it should be deposited in m authorised pojjimjrpJal bswfc or a Federal Reserve bank, using Federal Tax Deposit Form50i, Usser aspmti ran be sent to IBS with the return, ' Further informaticm can be by writing toOUtrlct CAPITALISM AH1> TH£ ESTABLISHMENT Donald Kaul, rapidly becoming one of Iowa's best known liberals, in his " Over the Coffee" column in the Des Moines Register last Thursday said, " The environmental predicament in which we how find ourselves is nothing less than a crisis of capitalism. Capitalism's boast is that it provides a great Way to allocate resources and produce goods and services in large quantities, but it does so at a great social cost, which the system neither assesses nor pays. It has no machanism to do it" In his closing paragraph he added, " In other words, if American capitalism is to be more than greed raised to the level of a philosophical system, it's time for us capitalists to prove it." It would be nice if people like Kaul would make up their minds as to what their own social philosphy is; whether it be democratic, socialistic, or communistic so that the rest of us would know how to categorize them. Greed is a form of human weakness that is more individual than a national philosophy and is present in any form of social living. American capitalism, with all of its faults, has still been the most successful in providing the best standards of living in the world. To accuse capitalism of being soley motivated by greed is to generalize in an unfair way. Probably no nation in history has had a greater outpouring of volunteer tima and resources to help solve human problems than in America. Americans have not limited themselves to helping their own unfortunates, but have distributed a share of their wealth worldwide. America's capitalists have established foundations which have also made great voluntary contributions to social progress. Some will say these foundations were established as a tax savings ploy, but we have greater faith in human nature than this, preferring to believe that " capitalists" have used foundations and tax savings as a way to accomplish good for mankind. A study of worldwide conditions will reveal pollution and environmental problems are not unique to the United States, but are great problems in communist and socialist countries, too. It is not any one social philosophy or system that has brought about the " environmental predicament in which we now find ourselves." It is a problem of civilization and demands for higher standards of living, plus concentrations of populations in large metropolitan centers. It is easy to accuse " the establishment" of causing all of the problems that exist in society because it is impersonal and not specific. All societies are ruled by an " establishment." Changing " the establishment" would not eliminate problems, but would only set up another " establishment" which would produce new problems or, possibly, enlarge old problems. From what we have seen of maav protestors, who are bent on destroying what they like to call " the establishment," we see little hope for the future - if they succeed in becoming " the establishment " IOWA Oh Iowa dear Iowa you are a beautiful state, With your hills and valleys your rivers and lakes. There 1 Ssfish in your rivers There's fish in your lakes, There's hunting and fishing both early and late. There's hiking and swimming the whole summer through. Oh Iowa dear Iowa that's why we are so proud of you. Oh Iowa dear Iowa with your beautiful farms With your acres and acres of oats and corn. With your treelined driveways and your silos so tall, With your sla" t painted corn cribs, and barns with many stalls. There's cows in the pasture, there's calves in the stalls. Oh Iowa dear Iowa you are the finest of all. Oh Iowa dear Iowa with your fields of waving grain, With acres of corn over hill and plain. Your pheasants are so beautiful that roam the fields each day. And there's ducks and geese on the lakes and rivers they say. There's deer by the river and deer on the hills. They are so graceful and beautiful its a shams to see them killed. Oh Iowa dear Iowa how can anyone kill? Oh Iowa dear Iowa there's acres of hay that keeps the farmer busy for many a day, but what a good feeling when its all tucked away to feed the horses and cows and sheep by the way. But when the harvest is ended there's enough left in the field To satisfy God's creatures and that's a good deal. Oh Iowa dear Iowa you have done more than your share To satisfy God's creatures as well as God's man. Oh Iowa dear Iowa could we have a finer state? We don't have any mountains but plenty of rivers and lakes. There's trees by the river, there's trees on the hills, the scenery is beautiful it gives you a thrill. And our highways are a dream won't you comn over and see? You will find the people friendly as friendly as can be. Oh Iowa dear Iowa what more could you be. Oh Iowa dear Iowa your winters are fun for sportloving youngsters, also the older ones, there's skiing and hiking, and some ice fishing too, And homes with a fireside where there's lots of things to do. There's reading and T. V. and games by the score. Oh Iowa dear Iowa our home ever more. Oh Iowa dear Iowa with deep valleys and hills, With ice on the river and snow on the hills. Where there's skiing and skating and ice fishing galore, Oh Iowa dear Iowa what could we ask for more. But this isn't all for there's a lot more. There's churches and schools and hospitals galore. Oh Iowa dear Iowa, we'll not ask for more By Mrs, Ray Robertson THE INDEPENDENT Thursday, April 30, 1970 820 CENTRAL HAWARDEN, IOWA « Q23 PUBLISHED 1Y THE HAWARDEN PRINTING CORPORATION THE INDEPENDENT, Thursday.
