Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 11, 1961, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE HOME EDITION vou w The newspaper that makes all North I o w a n s AmcUted Prew and United Preit International Full Leasa Wires MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY APRIL 11 1941 neighbors 7c a Copy Paper Consist of Three Nt Ill Senate set to OK 12 road use tax FROM OUK WIKE SERVICES DES Iowa Sen ate Monday approved increas ing the city and town share ol the slates million road use taxfund from 8 to 12 per cent The 3515 vote came on an amendment by Sen X T Pren tis RMount Ayr and 24 other senators to a bill sent out for Gals come to aid j of party if Help to swell GOP coffers By DICK WEST WASHINGTON UPI Five weeks ago the womens divi sion of the Republican National Committee decided it was time to start raising money for the 1962 congressional campaign So it began sending dollar bills to party workers through out the country At first glance there would appear to be madness in this method I mean no politician in his right mind would try to finance a campaign by contri buting to his contributors I hasten to add however that the GOP ladies have not taken leave of their senses They are merely conducting an experi ment in doityourself fund raising EACH WOMAN who receives a dollar from the committee is supposed to Pyramid it into a large sum and then send the entire amount back to the GOP treasury The committee leaves it to the individual to determine how to build the pyramid And this has given rise to some of the most unorthodox fundraising methods of the history of poli tics Let us consider first the man ner in which Fern E Lee of Towner ND came to the aid of her party with a pyramid During a church dinner she told the committee I snitched a leaf from a gorgeous plant took it home put it in water to root it later potted the plant and soon there were six small violet plants Bought five small flower pots with the pyramid planted the violets in each Invited five gals for bridge and lunch and had no trouble selling those plants for each Returned a potted violet lo the church to case my conscience t THERE IS NO doubt that Mrs Lees fundraising tech nique was a bit out of the or dinary As to whether it indi cates that the angels will be on the side of the republicans in the next election I am not pre pared to say A more energetic if less in genious fundraising method was employed by Mrs C Y Scmple Baxter Springs Kan Here is how she built a pyramid Made and sold felt sunflowers made and sold chocolate cakes bread and rolls apple pies 2 birthday cakes gave two crew cuts shortened three skirts cooked pot of beans mended three sweaters one pair trou sers mended afghan made and sold one pair of pajamas gave one shampoo and set one pedi cure one manicure and 10 electric impulse facials ANOTHER PYRAMID was built by Mrs Francis E Hoi brook Cuyahoga Ohio as fol lows My son brought home a cocoon of a praying mantis which hatched I sold baby man tises for 25 cents each and gave him a nickle Sold 18 and could have sold more but my stock ate each other up As fundraising novelties these rank high but I think the pyramid built by Marian Smith Pulaski Ark tops them all Probably not a way youd advise she wrote but I added a dollar and bet on Rebelj Ruler in the ninth at Oaklawn Park lc camn in a winner May we do the same in action by the Senate Highway Committee The Senate also voted 419 to allocate the cities and towns share on a straight population basis instead of including a need factor However the upper chamber bogged down on a system of al locating the counties share for secondary roads on need and area Final action on the bill was deferred Under Prentis amendment 48 per cent of the fund would go to primary highways 40 per cent to secondary roads and 12 per cent to cities and towns The present formula is 50 per cent to secondary roads 42 per cent to primary highways and 8 per cent to cities and towns VOTING ON the Prentis amendment came after theSen ate earlier had defeated sev eral other amendments that would have given cities and towns an even greater share of the road use cash A coalition of rural senators and some big city legislators passed the amendment after RAIN North Iowa Thunderstorms and locally heavy rain Tuesday night lows 3437 Cloudy windy occasional light rain and continued cold Wednes day

successive efforts to gain 15 14 and 13 per cent of the fund The debate on the controver sial allocation covered parts of three days Sen Lynn Potter DCresco said the approved formula would give cities and towns a 50 per cent increase over what they now receive from the fund It would however cut the sec ondary roads by 20 per cent The present formula is 50 per cent for secondary roads 42 per cent for primary highways and 8 per cent for cities and towns THE PRENTIS amendment was substituted for a sliding scale formula recommended by the highways committee which would have upped the cities and towns share to 10 per cent next year and increased the alloca tion 2 per cent a year until it reached a maximum of 14 per cent in 1964 The committee plan would have given primary highways 50 per cent and secondary roads 40 per cent next year In 1963 and 1954 each of those alloca tions would have been trimmed 1 per cent and the money given to the cities and towns Sen Jack Schroedcr R Davenport said the approved formula would absolutely crip pie the primary highway pro gram and cities and towns might wind up with nothing more than they now have He pointed out that at presen the 5th and 6th cents of the 6 cents a gallon state gasoline tax goes exclusively to primary highways and is not includec in the RUTF allocation form ula SEN MARTIN Wiley RCe dar Rapids also predicted thai the cities would lose money even though they gained 4 per cent because the highway com mission would quit paving the primary highway extensions into 404 municipalities in the slate Wiley said the highway com mission actually provides citie with 37 per cent of your needs it seem silly to rob that fund But Prentis defended his pro posal to leave the secondary systems money intact because the roads get the agricultural products to cities and towns Think of the products not people Prentis said as he called the secondary road sys tem the heartbeat of Iowa AS EICHMANN WENT ON Eich mann stands in bullet

amendments to the mo bile home tax measure and sent the bill to Gov Norman Erbe who is expected to sign it The vote was 826 N ews in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES THE HOUSE originally ap proved a bill which would double the tax but the Senate scaled the increases down to an average of 130 per cent Both chambers agreed at the outset on a annual registra ion fee which must be paid whether the mobile homes are permanently located in a trailer court or lot or moved over the highways Under the present law the registration fees which go into the state motor vehicle registra tion fund are based on weight and range from 3 for small trailers to for the largest ones The bill also provides for school tax assessments of a month on trailers up to 30 feet n length S4 on those between 30 and 35 feet and for those over 35 feet THE CURRENT monthly tax rate is S2 and respec tively The proceeds of the tax s prorated 50 per cent to local school districts 25 per cent to municipalities if the trailers are parked within their limits and 25 per cent to the county general und If the trailer is located outside a city or town the fees are divided equally between the school district and county gen eral fund The measure sent to the gov ernor provides that 100 per cent f the tax fees go to the school district if the mobile homes are ocated outside cities and towns Tor those within municipal cor 3orate limits 75 per cent goes o the school district and 25 per cent to the municipality Adenauer flies to US BONN Germany Chancellor K o n r a d Ade nauer left by plane for the United States for talks with

Protcslants the present nowait ing period marriage law is nearly impossible to enforce THE STATEMENT appears in an open letter mailed Monday night lo the Rev Raymond L Spocrri DCS Moines associate

law the clerk who issues the license must depend on the statement of a witness FISCHBECK NOTED that by the time the clerk has checked the information about the parties marrying the actual ceremony is
