Old Age Pension
Bill for $30 Less
Senators George Craven of Lincoln
and Sam Klarer of Omaha to
LINCOLN, Jan 21 (UP) An old
apre pension bill which proposes to
guarantee $30 a month less earned
income to eligible recipients will be
introduced in the legislature Monday
under sponsorship of Senators George
Craven of Lincoln and Sam Klaver
The bill will be accompanied by a
companion revenue producing1 measure
to tax property and securities not now
reached in many cases by the asses
sors. Craven cited as examples cor
poration stocks and paidup stock in
building and loan associations, not in
stallment stock. It is r.ot intended to
affect the surrender value of life in
Craven and Kalver predicate the
$30 pension payments on the basis
of a full cent of the gasoline tax and
possible reduction in state and county
administrative assistance staffs. Their
theory is that more funds should be
spent for the aged recipients and less
Craven said the plan provides for
judicial review in event of appeal
from decisions of the county board.
Such appeals now go to state assist
ance Director Neil C. Vandemoer.
The program, as outlined, calls for
appeals to the county or district court.
"Under this fixed pension plan,"
Craven said, "decision as to any cer
tain pensioner will stand unless and
until circumstances of the individual
are changed or altered. If thi3 elimin
ates upward of 90 per cent of the
work of investigating doesn't it stand
to reason that it should eliminate 90
per cent of the investigators?"

Rules on Power
Max Towle Takes View That Power
District Property Comes Under
General Scope of Law.
LINCOLN, Jan. 21 (UP) County
Attorney Max Towle ruled today
that personal property of the Loup
River public power district and the
Eastern Nebraska public power dis
trict is not exempt from taxation
and should be placed on Lancaster
county tax rolls.
In an opinion requested by County
Assessor Harry Scott, Towle inter
preted the language fo senate file
310 (public power district enabling
act) to mean "that the legislature
intended these power districts should
pay their proportionate share of the
"I am of the opinion whenever a
close question arises as to whether or
not property is exempt or not, that
it is a better practice to place it on
the tax rolls and make an effort to
enforce the tax."
Towle described it as a "border
line" case and said he could not
definitely say what action the courts
will take in regard to the question.
"The matter of exemption shall
naturally arise by reason of section
77-202 of the compiled statutes for
1929, which exempts governmental
subdivisions. I am not satisfied how
ever, in my own mind that an elec
tric power line of the nature of the
one in question can be classified as a
political or government subdivision."
The county attorney said that the
question comes within the purview of
the law which states that property
not expressly exempt shall be sub
ject to taxation. County Assessor
Scot said he would request the two
districts to submit a report of their
holdings in the county at once.

LAND, FARM and
FARMERS' ONLY CHANCE'
For two years we have consistently
preached to farmers that their only
chance to get ahead is to get back
into the hog raising business. Dozens
of farmers in this and surrounding
counties are now THANKING US
FOR HELPING THEM DO THIS and
enabling them to get double price
for their corn and feed.
Right now is the time to buy sows
for spring farrowing. Each month
later the cost will be higher. We
sell them to you on time if desired.
We have Hamps, Spotted P. C's. and
Reds. Piggy sows do not shrink like
corn in the crib, but Increase In
value many times more than the feed
they eat. Grain fed to such sows
and their pigs brings you twice as
much as the market price. Why not
come and talk It over?
