I/' 1 Statehouse News Digest (Weekly\B6WS release of the Iowa Pitts Association. • The mai«t!«a contained heft* in dots ttoi necessarily conform id the editorial policy i 6f this newspaper.) tttSHWAY AfcPQItmiEirrs — Governor Herschel Loveless has appointed Harold Teachout, Shen- iandoah farmer, to the state high' commission succeeding the Cecil Malone of Atlantic. Teachout is a member of the Democratic central c o m m i ttee from the* 7th district. If approved by the Senate, Ws term would expire July 1, 1961. It is rumored that William .Nicholas, former Republican lieutenant governor from Mason City will be named by Loveless to the highway commission. The Senate has already confirmed Robert Brice, Waterloo Democrat, to the highway commission. It is rather unique that Love-less will appoint all five rnem- bers of the highway commission this session. Terms of the throe Republicans on the commission, Robert Beck, Centerville; RUS- sell Lundy, Des Moines, and Chris Larsen, Sioux City, all expire June 30th of this year. Both Malone and Brice were serving interim appointments since the Senate had refused to confirm thorn two years ago.. Thus, the balance of oower on the commission will swing from Republican to Democratic control 'with the Democrats having a 3-2 edge on July 1. * * T VENDING MACHINES — A bill to permit cigarette vending machines in Iowa passed the 'Senate,, 36 to 13, but then hit a sna'g in the House of Representatives. The House voted, 51-47, to send the measure to the safety and law, enforcement committee • for further study. Theibill would permit licensed • retailers to use the cigarette vending machines if they own the machines and ah adult would have to supervise the machines at all times. » * * .,' DAYTIME SPEED — The Iowa Senate has voted to 'fix a 70 mile-an-hour anytime «peed "limit on Iowa's prmary 'hghways. It has also passed a measure fixing speed limit of 6E miles an hour at nighttime anc - '75 miles an hour > day time on the interstate highway system. The legislature two years ago adopted a nightime speed limit of 60 miles ',an hour.. . The Senate highway safety committee has turned thumbs dttwfe oft * proposed bill Which, according to its sponsors, would eliminated speed traps in smatt towns and «ft!ea. The bill would have permitted the state highway commission to establish higher speed limits on primary routes Iowa edmmufiitles. law provides that the highway commission can lower speed limits tfwii have been set by city or town councils. Th« proposed bill would have granted the' commission permission >to raise the speed limits set by local governing bodies if the commission, Upott.the basis of surveys, found the speed limits to be unrealistic. » » * ABOLISH CORONER SYSTEM Bills have been introduced in both houses of the legislature to abolish the present office of county coroner and establish a new office of_county medical referee. The county medical referee would be either • a licensed physician or osteopath and would be appointed by the county board of supervisors. The proposed bills would also set up the office of chief'state medical referee to assist on postmortem examinations. * * * CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS —, The state board of regents estimates, th&t between now nnd 970 approximately 72 million dollars of construction will be needed at the three state institu- ions of higher learning — Iowa state, State University, and Iowa State Teachers, The regents have recommended 4hat part of the $72 million be appropriated this year for immediate 'construction needs with the rest 'io be financed with a state bond issue. * * * Cdrole Wittkopf Wittkopf, Algeria Wgh school senior, was commanded recently by the National Merit Scholarship Corporatidn ,for he* Outstanding performance on a nationwide test of educational development.
