High taxes was the chief co.np'niiit
legistered against thoc in chaige of
state affairs by Mr. McKclvie, th n as
now, u candidate for governor,
throughout the campaign of two year3
ago and the people were lead to bs
licve that if elected ho would bo in
strumental in sccuiing a tax reducti ,n.
On Sept. 17, 1018, in a political ad
dress at Kearney, according to a re
poit published in tho State Journal
of Lincoln on the following day, ho i3
leported $o have lamented the "tax
burden upon tho people" during tho
previous six years and insisted that
"this may mean much or nothing, but
everyone who is at all In touch with
the conduct of the state's affairs
knows that if it recks with ineffici
ency, waste and favoritism."
Similar assertions were matlo at
Lexington, Grand Island, Gothenburg,
Ogallala and Goring. At Scottsbluff
the charges were disputed. But, Mr.
McKclvie was elected. His "civil ad
ministrative code bill" was adopted
only to be i ejected by tho people
through the only avenue afforded them
for doing so when they approved the
new state constitution and what has
been tho result?
lias tho "tax burden upon the
people" been reduced? By no moans.
Instead state taxes were inci eased
from $.1,309,102 in 1918 to $7,400,013
in 1919, the first year of his torn,
an increase of more than three million
dollars in a sinj-lo year. Not much re
lief from the "tax burden upon the
people" there. Then in 1020 they wore
given another boost, so that the total
taxes naid bv the people of the state
aro more than throe and one-half
million dollars greater than they were
when ho lamented the groat "ta bur
den upon tho people," and'chaigcd
that tho state's affaiis were necking
with "inefficiency, waste and favorit-
But tho general tax is not tiie only
tax that has boon increased. Under
the former administration every auto
mobile owner paid a tax, or li'o-sa of
$3 per car per year. Under the pics
cnt administration tho minimum
license is $10 per car while the aver
age for all cars is $12.50. As there
aro about 210,000 cars in tho tato tho
increased tax imposed upon auto own
eis amounts to approxim itc'y $2,
Contrast this lcconl of ' inefficiency,
waste nnd favoritism" uim r the Aic
Kelvie administration with that of
John Morchcad while he was serving
as governor, who during hs picvious
campaigns, made no rcckls charges
or impossible claims, but as eitcd that
if elected, as he asserts now, ho would
stav on tho job and give the pcop'o a
thorough business administration. He
mado good then and state taxes were
reduced ore-sixth during hN picvious
administration. This was not accom
plished thiough the passage of "civil
administrative code bills" and Junkets
from Seattle, Wath , to "Washirg'on,
D. C, but by remaining at Lis office
and administering the trust that had
been bestowed upon him by the pqoplo
of tho state.

"make the boy a partner
It was said by a great many wise
ones that the soldiers having lcd-out-door
lives so long, would want to get
back on the farm, but it is estimated
by the Department of Agriculture
that more ..than 500,000 fanner boys
have had a taste of another kind of
life and that they never will go back.
You can hardly blame them for not
going back to some farms where tho
living conditions arc primitive.
They have learned tho nluo of
running water, the comfort of a well
set table and well prepared food and
they also know they arc ripablc of
earning a living and onjo ng them
selves in surroundings whMi nppeal
to them which they could never havo
if they should go back under tho old
This being the fact, one of the most
important things which a farm bureau
organization can do is to standard
ize its boys and to weave nnd build
them into tho farm cnuation. making
them self reliant, money paving and
property owning citizens.
It used to bo considered enough for
a boy to wait until his father died to
get control of the farm. The modern
idea is with a boy, if ho cannot mako
a partner of his father, ho had boat
find a plnco whore he can become in
terested in tho business.
Stripped of all frill", thk is tho
real problem. As soon a tho l;oy

supporting, ho is willinjr to be n
