Sylvester thoroughly discussed the Weed Law and the various possibilities of getting cooperation through the various townships in the county.

These centers would have adequate machinery available to readily clean All seed used by the banners for seeding purposes this Spring. He also had some outlines available showing How Small farm seed cleaning machinery could be economically constructed which would do extensive work and would prove of great Benefit where extensively used in eliminating the spread of noxious weeds. To a projects discussed at meeting held Friday the county soil improvement association held a meeting at the farm Bureau office on Friday afternoon of the past week. This meeting was called for the purpose of discussing the Tva or soil improvement projects to be carried on in the county this year. Five Tva projects were sponsored by this association last year in the county while five additional ones Are backed for 1938. Floyd Parks soils agent of the four counties soil improvement association was present and thoroughly explained to thei group the arrangements necessary to be set up in each township where a project of this nature was to be conducted this year. He also briefly summarized the results of the five projects carried under the Tva setup last year. The five Tva projects this year Are limited to one Cooperator per township or. In other words five townships in addition to the five townships which carried the work last year will be eligible this year providing arrangements can be completed satisfactorily with the cooperators. There Are several requirements the Cooperator will be expected to comply with in order to carry on this soil improvement work on his particular farm. The location of the farm the Type of soil adequate farm records and Lime applications Are among the More important ones. Township meetings will be held in the near future and the arrangements for carrying on this activity will be thoroughly explained. Proof of will to All whom it May concern notice is hereby Given that an instrument purporting to be the last will and testament of r. V. Pearson deceased late of Alla Makee county Iowa has been opened and read in the office of the clerk of District court of Iowa in and for Alla Makee county and that february 21st, 1938, has been set for hearing the proof of said will in said court. Witness my hand and the Seal of said court this 20th Day Seal of january 3938. O. H. Fossum clerk of District court. The last checks issued by the West Union Farmers Creamery co. Paid the producers at the rate of 40 cents a Pound for butterfat says the West Union Argo. Since then the Price of butter has gone Down. The Creamery is As Secretary o. E. Reeder says Over the Hump and is making thirty tubs More of butter to the week than at the Low time. This is a gain of almost a ton of butter a week. Washington news by Fred Biermann january 31, 1938. Cutting expenses. I Don t envy the members who Are on the committee on appropriations. How can they Tell How Many hundreds of clerks Are needed in the department of agriculture How can they determine How Many undershirts should be provided for the army for the ensuing fiscal year How can they off the farm or from the office pass intelligently on the request of a pompous military Man for a greatly increased appropriation when a dignified Navy officer tells them we should spend so Many millions More on battleships How can the average members of the committee on appropriations know the answer the reply to All these questions is they can one of the members of the committee on appropriations for whom i have the greatest esteem believes that the House of representatives should have a staff of trained auditors and investigators to spend All their time combing the departments bureaus agencies etc., to determine just where savings can be made. Government is so vast and so complicated today whether we like it or not and i Don t like it that a committee of Congress cannot pass intelligently on the needs of the Many agencies. I believe that the suggestion of my Friend for a continuing auditing and investigating Force would be a very very profitable establishment. Taxes. Taxes especially heavy ones Are always interesting. The new York Sun has compiled a table showing about 50 of the biggest salaried people in the United states with the amount of National income tax they must pay on them and also the amount of new York state income tax they would pay if they live in that state. Here Are some the figures in round numbers Alfred p. Sloan or. Of general motors had a salary of 560,000 for 1936. His National income tax was $350,000 and his new York state income tax $45,000. He had a net income for himself of $165,000. In other words he paid about $400,000 income taxes and had 5165.000 for himself. Of course his real estate and personal property would have to be settled aside from the above. But income taxes absorbed five tenths of his salary. Claudette Colbert the actress had a salary of $350,000. Her income taxes were $200,000 to the National Treasury and $28,000 for new York state with a net of $122,000 for herself. Four of the Fishers of general motors had an income of about $305,000 each. After paying taxes they had about $113 000 each left. Anybody who thinks the Rich Aren t paying taxes is greatly mistaken. They can t get away from it on salaries. It is True that much wealth escapes taxation by going into tax exempt securities but these escapes Are not nearly so Large As the catches such As i be referred to above. Foreign Trade increases. Figures recently released show that the United states exported $889,680,000 More goods to foreign countries in 1937 than in 1936. That Means an $889,680,000 expansion of our Market and an $889,680,000 Cut in the surpluses of farm and factory products which have harassed us the past eight years. Our imports in 1937 were $661,469,000 greater than in 1936. That Means that shipowners stevedores at the ports importers railroads jobbers and retailers had $661,469,000 of business in 1937 More than they had in 1936. And therefore All these classes of our citizens were More prosperous to that extent. It also Means that millions of americans saved Money on their purchases. There is no getting away from the fact All history from the beginning of recorded time teaches the doctrine the great commercial nations Are the great prosperous nations. To sell a nation must buy. Its citizens sell because they would rather have the purchaser s Money than their own goods. Its citizens buy because they would rather have the Sellers goods than the Money they pay for them. Buying and Selling trading both ways is economically Wise. Thank god the United states of America is becoming aware of those facts. When we have translated them into effective action the Prosperity of this country will reach Heights never before attained. Fourth class postmasters. If the House of representatives has its Way the 4th class postmasters will be put onto a salary basis in place of their present fantastic commission basis. The House passed such a Bill january 2gth. What the Senate will do no one can predict. In the past five years they Haven t done so Well As the House in my opinion though they Are presumed to apply More years and Wisdom and sound judgment to legislation than the House is supposed to Supply a fourth class postmaster s salary is a complicated calculation. It involves so Many factors that a very Large majority of All cases of mishandling of Post office funds arise in 4th class offices. That does t mean that 4th class postmasters Are less honest than 1st, 2nd and 3rd classes. But they have a very different system of accounting. The Bill which i Hope will become Law places All postmasters on a salary basis. Farmers income. The income of american Farmers in 1937, according to figures recently published was in round numbers $8,500,-000,000. In 1936 it was $7,900,000,000. The farming situation has been improving. It is not what it should be. Few things in this world Are but we Are travelling in the right direction. A patient suffering of a disease of Long standing does not regain perfect health in a week or a month but if he is reasonable he is satisfied if he shows steady improvement.
