Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - October 9, 1974, Sioux Center, Iowa Editorials proposed my 20 tax on got could to sad a Sitiko the suggestion last week by the Federal Energy department that gasoline be taxed an extra 2gy per gallon on amounts above 500 Gallons a year Motorist uses As a Means of getting people to buy and use less and thus help conserve the Supply struck a sour chord with Many Arhe Picans. Despite the built in allowance feature regarding in come tax withholding Many feel such a tax would definitely work More of a hardship on Low income people than anyone else and in the Case of those living in Rural communities where there is no Public transportation it could cripple some rather severely and unfairly. There s no arguing the fact that the plan would Cut Gas consumption and would encourage in the metro Politan areas More use of Public transportation and More pooling of transportation in communities without Public transportation. The plan it should be remembered would also Channel a lot More Money into the Federal coffers which in turn would be spent you can be sure of that in ways that might Worsen inflation. It seems to this newspaper that this is a Complex Way of rationing Gas. And that s what the plan really amounts to a form of rationing. If rationing is required if we must sharply reduce our consumption to avoid outpacing our supplies and to eventually become self sufficient in meeting our Oil needs then Why not a straight Forward plan of rationing this would be a much simpler approach and would avoid All the red tape and figure juggling. Besides when the fuel crises subsides it is fairly simple to quit rationing. To remove taxes from gasoline once there might not be so easily accomplished. There would be reasons Given you can be sure for retaining it indefinitely especially if there was any indication that the people were learning to live with it. Graphy personal appearance and Many others. Liter ally millions of boys and girls have Down through the years developed leadership ability through opportunities provided them by the 4-h program. It is a pro Gram that deserves the Best support and encourage ment we can give it. And let s not forget that this is annual newspaper week a time when we appropriately Stop to reflect on the role that the press plays in our daily lives disseminating news disbursing advertising messages picturing the happenings of the Day and week and the people involved in those happenings. Maybe it is so you can t believe everything you read in the papers. But most of it is fairly reliable most of the time. You would not be nearly As Well we wednesday.

Pork co Ops 4-h clubs nows papers ooch Servos a spool in Way october is a month of special observances. It is pork month Coop month 4-h month the month in which annual newspaper week Falls just to name a few. The various observances Are important in their re. Spec Tive ways. Certainly in our area and to some degree through out the nation the pork Industry plays a big role in our lives. Not Only do Many of our farm families make a living producing pork but pork is such an important part of our daily diet. Think How Dull our meals would be if we did t have Bacon Ham spare ribs pork chops sausage pork roasts True Many of us take these delicacies for granted. Most of us enjoy them so regularly that we never Stop to think How fortunate we Are to have them so abundantly available they Are More than just Good food they Are important to Good balanced nutrition. We can All help observe pork month by simply continuing to enjoy pork at every Opportunity. Coop month focuses on the Broad and important Roll which co operatives play in our business Community. They enable Farmers and others to buy wisely to Market More efficiently. They keep a lot of dollars circulating in our Rural communities instead of going elsewhere. They pay a big hunk of taxes they employ a lot of people they help Farmers to help keep their operational costs under control. Co Ops have Long contributed importantly to the Over All Economy of this and other Sioux county communities. We Mark their importance specifically during Coop month but they serve in an indispensable Way every Day of the year. This is National 4-h week pet. 6-12 and so we should pause to consider How important the 4-h clubs Are in our Sioux county and Northwest Iowa areas. In Sioux county alone there Are approximately 800 Young people Between the Ages of 9 and 19, Active today in 37 different clubs. These Young people Are learning by doing and who knows a better Way to learn than that the theme of 1974 National 4-h week is we can make it those who have observed 4-h members in action Down through the years know it is an appropriate theme. These Young people meet the Challenge of a project like a 4-year old tackles an ice Cream Cone with All the enthusiasm and gusto they can Muster. Their work branches out into Many categories places emphasis on such things As health safety livestock raising food production Good nutrition Home furnishings ecology photo Sioux Cove to. The american family is in trouble. Statistics show a steady erosion of family stability As divorces multiply across the nation. For example one Hundred years ago Ameri cans experienced Twenty nine divorces for every one thousand marriages. Today the figure has soared to 455 divorces per thousand marriages nationally. And still going up. Some states like Montana Are in deep trouble with 803 divorces for each 1000 marriages. The figure in Oregon is 768. California 755. Florida 685. Colorado 596. Marriage obviously is not held in High esteem by Large segments of our society. A recent poll of College students revealed 34% believe marriage is obsolete. Books articles and films make a mockery of marriage assuming it to be old fashioned and outdated. But without a Strong family Structure our nation is doomed. No society can be greater than the individual units which comprise the whole. No nation can endure which holds marriage lightly or which sees divorce As the answer to marital problems. America will take its place on the Ash Heap of history unless we work to stabilize family life by recapturing a High sense of the family s Worth and a Sacra mental View of marriage. One place where this High View of marriage still lives is in the . Here More than in any other place the True Sanctity of marriage is upheld and taught. Significantly far fewer divorces occur among Active Church members than in any other segment of society. This is so because churches undertake to teach the Art of family living to their people. Further the Joys of marriage and family life Are More often experienced by those who live by principle rather than by whim.
