Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - December 25, 1930, Sioux Center, IowaI will not fear tuna can Man do unto Nie Center Sioux Center Iowa Christmas 1930 should Sioux county pave and if it be not so nok who make a liar and mate my speech nothing Worth t an answer to one of our readers Clever clovers Christmas party elect new officers a review of our article of dec 11 will show that Weare not arguing the question of the paving program and the gasoline tax but Are advocating paving for Sioux county As the Best Way out of a situation in which we at present find our selves it is not necessary to discuss the gasoline tax and the Way it is being distributed for that is a decided question it is a Law of the state of Iowa and the most frequently heard objection is that we have no Assurance that the legislature will not remove the gasoline tax after we have bonded ourselves and pledged our real estate As Security and that if this tax were removed the Bonds would have to be paid for by a direct tax it is possible for the legislature to remove the Gas tax but it is not at All probable 85 counties have voted Bonds and Are depending on the Gas tax License fees and fed eral Aid to pay for them any legislator from these 85 counties would no dare vote for repeal of the Gas tax it would mean that he was at tempting to make Liis constituents the people who voted for him and Trust him and whose favor he wishes to keep pay directly out of their pockets what is now being paid very indirectly and a Way in which it is not it would be political suicide for them even to advocate such a repeal since it would take 36 of these 85 counties representatives to effect a repeal if they could get the 14 unpaved counties representatives to help them we believe that it would be next to impossible to have this Law repealed or Nettinga refers to this method of paying for the Bonds a Promise by the Iowa state Highway commission and claims he has no Faith in such promises neither have we but we have Faith in the Laws of the state of Iowa which order the i s h commission to pay these Bonds in a certain Way or Nettinga next argument is what if people should quit using cars and hence Cut Down the Gas tax to so Low a figure it would not be sufficient to pay interest on the Bonds there is a Remote possibility that this might happen but our whole life and scheme existence is built around the use of automobiles to such an extent that they Are absolute necessities to continued life we might also argue i wont get out of bed this morning because by doing so i might break my leg since it is hard telling whether Sioux will have an Opportunity to vote county Bonds before the state votes its Bond Issue we will refrain from saying More until such time As we Are sure Alida Den Herder entertained the Clever Clover girls at a Christmas party on saturday december 29 i brightly lighted Christmas tree an a gift Box helped to usher in the Christmas spirit the girls toot pleasure
