Virtually every prominent leader and repuable organi- zation in lV~innesot;a has en- dorsed Vhe Taconite Amend- ment # 1 and urges your en- 1~hnsiastlc support. That in- cludes Governor Rolvaag, for- mer Governor Elmer L. And- erson, and DFL and Republi- vmn parties and business, la- /)or, civic and church groups all across the state. Why all this non-partisan, ~atewlde support? Because Mlnrmsota needs the money and jobs that an expar~ding Taconite industry will bring. I join with our state's lead- .ers in urging you, the voter, to support this important is- sue --- and vote "yes" for Ta- conite Amendment # I on November 3rd. Sincerely, Roll Horde IRON CONGRESS ANCH]ER NELSON REPORTS FROM CONGRESS Like a bubbling pot that never boils dry, Washington never seems to run out of statistics or words. But one group of figures we always consider people are interested in getting involves the costs of running the federal gov- ernment. So we were glad to receive ,in the o fiee the other day the l test report on the em- ployment and pay situation from Senator Harry Byrd of irginla. Senator Byrd, as you may know, is the econ- :omy-minded Democrat who :serves as chairman of the Joint Committee on Reduc- tion of Nonessential Federal Expenditures. Here are some of the more s nlflcant figures from Sen- ator Byrd's latest study: The of civilian federal employment has continued to nb with a vengeance to a new all-time high. Some $16.2 billions of dollars went in fis- cal 1964 --which ended last June 30 h -- to pay for the salaries of peoplecarrying on the m ny and varied of our government. This rig, ure, incidentally, is nearly $1 billion more than it took to pay workers in 1963, and some $3.6 billions more than it tool four years ago to keep the government work force. Another interesting fact Is that our total civilian work force now numbers 2,488,000 in round figures -- up by 102, 000 over the total some four years aFo. I don't want to pester you with too many statistics, but here are just a couple more I found pretty revealing. This July alone, 10,300 new work- era went to work for Uncle might rise to totals of more than 6 million dollars by 1990. This isbased on estimates of possible future pro- duction madeby Professor Pfleider of the School of Mines of the University of Minnesota. They are based on the assumption that. Minnesota will be able to hold a reasonable portion of the American market for iron ore. The projected state revenues from taconite assume that present costs, prices and tax laws are in effect, and that the 1962 average tax per ton would thus remain unchanged. In- creases in efficiency which usually come as the industry develops, would tend to increase the state's income under the taconite occupation and royalty taxes. The figures discussed above do NOT include the taconite taxes paid to counties, school districts, townships and illages where taconite operations are located. Amounts paid to these local units under the taconite produc- tion tax, the taconite railroad tax and through special local taxes aggregate of the State of Minnesota from the taconite industry now totals approxi- mately 5 million dollars a year. As the industry expands, the tax income of the state will rise. If taconite de- velops in Minnesota as projected, the total state tax income could triple in 25 years. In addition local taxes on taconite will also rise with increased taconite production. Obviously, Minnesota will gain more tax revenues from expansion of the taconite industry than it would from changes in tax rates which might prevent such expansion. The proposed taconRe amendment to the Minnesota constitution con- firms the almost unanimous policy of the 1963 legislature that present poli- cies of state taxation of taconite oper- ations should be continued for 25 years. Passage of the amendment will help .to assure immediate expansion of. the taconite industry and long- term growth which will benefit both the people and the tax inccme of the state. CITIZENS COMMITTEE FOR THE TACONITE AMENDMENT --- Dr. Charles W. M~yo, Chairm~r. Sam in 43 differen depart- ments, agencies and commis- sions. Biggest single employ- er of all these new people was -- you guessed It -- tt e Department of Agriculture. The Agriculture Department hired 3,562 new people dur- ing this July alone. Since the Agriculture de- partment has dumped 90 mil- lion bushels of wheat on the market since the 1st el July in direct competition with our marketing this year--an incredible policy really--we can only hope these new em- ployees were not partners to tht~ ~cheme. Meanwhile, things continue at a slow pace her in Con- gress. As you may know, last week was proclaimed "Con- stitution Week"--a day set aside to honor our great dec- ument of human and politi- cal liberty. Anyway, the Con- gress, for one, took Constitu- tion Week pretty seriously.I Christmas While the Senate continued way off, but its filibustering over realx)r- tionment, the House I ules Oommittee gave the go signal to bills I and many others have tntrad ced on the sub-: jeer. My ,bill recommends a C(msti utlonal amendment to allow states to apportion at least one branch of their leg- gislatures on factors other then population. So we will have the opportunity to vote on this reapportionment mat ter this week. Earlier here in the House, you will recall, we passed a bill removing the state ap- portionment issue from the jurisdiction of the federal courts, but the filibustering Senate was unwilling to go along with us on this idea. Incidentally, they're calling the Senate filibuster going on back here "shooting from the lip", to coin a phrase. Well, many important bills involving many people con- tinue up in the air and the adjournment date gets hazier every day. 1 Waldmer Orewe, Chair- man of the agricultural com- mittee of the Rural Area De- velopment program has call- ed a meeting of the group for Monday, October 5th at the Sibley County Courthouse.

Christmas Tree Growers Ass- ociation 'have already started campaigning for ,business in the area. Recently they sent me a buyer's guide listing names of their members and the trees that they have av- ailable for Christmas this year. A .recent publication by a Lakestate Experiment Sta- tion shows that more people ,are buying scotch pine for Christmas trees. Most of the other tree species have held their own, except for the bal- sam fir which has lost grou- Zld. According to Carl Borge- son, who is in charge of seed stocks, a limited amount of registered Von Lochow rye is still available at the Rose- moun Experiment Station. This is a new Oerman rye that looked very good m sta- tion plots around the state i this ),ear. Interested farmers :ARMeRS, IVII, IT A TblE $E;GT Ill l II Illl I rather than before.

ANOTHER NATURAL GAS RATE REDUCTION AND REFUN~ A rate reduction ~as ,been announced by Minnesota Val- ley Natural Gas Company for all domestic and firm natural gas customers in the 54 com- mun,tt~es served 'by the com- pany. I The reduction, amounting to 2.1 cents per thousand cu- bic eet, and effective on bills rendered on and after Octo- br 1, 1964, will result in an annual savings of about $3.90 for the average customer on Minnesota Valley's system using na%ural gas for heating and other purposes.
