The material contained herein does not necessarily cbn- form to the editorial policy of this newspaper.) STATE FUNDS — The question of how much money the state should hnve in investments has been a topic of much conversation these past few days. It; all stnrted when stnte reasilrer M. L. Abrnhnmson announced he was withdrawing 27 nillion dollars in idle funds from Iowa banks to invest in short term federal securities. The money was on "demand" deposit which draws no interest. Abrahamson's plans to invest the money would bring in $750,000 annually. Abrahamson's action was prompted by news stories on the amount of idle funds in banks. Governor Herschcl Loveless said he thinks the state could withdraw an additional 10 million dollars. Loveless said his estimate of the amount of money that could be invested is con* servative and that, 'it might 'well be more.' * * * ELECTION COMMITTEE — The legislative committee on election practices and procedures has drafted its report wnich contains 11 specific recommendations. The committee said that perhaps the biggest weakness in the present election law is tho failure to place responsibility for reporting all receipts and expenditures of a candidate, i Among tho committee's recommendations was one to require each candidate to name a campaign treasurer who shall be responsible for reporting the receipts and expenditures. Another recommendation was to change the primary election day to the first Tuesday in June following the first Monday. It is now the first Monday in June, The committee also made recommendations on nomination papers,, jury commissions, absentee ballots, votirrg-Tnachinds and non-residents participa't 1 n g "' in elections. The committee, headed by Rep. Clark -McNeal, Bel- mpnd Republican, in addition recommended that no distillery nor distributor should be allowed to contribute in any manner to any candidate. It proposed that conviction for such a violation should carry a $1,000 fine or 30 days in jail and that such a conviction should forever bar thai distillery from doing business in Iowa. * * * SERVICE GRAVES — Attorney General Norman Erbo has ruled that it is mandatory for'county board :,of supervisors No Big Cash Surplus Problems Face County, City Treasuries Money 1«, always has been and always will b* an Interesting ioplc especially at ihU time of year when taxpayers face all kinds o* taxes- — state and federal income, personal property, real estate, auto license, etc. A decision by officials of the state of Iowa to withdraw an estimated $27,000,000 out of 80 million in banks around the state and invest it in interest paying securities prompted interviews concerning facts and figures with Kossuth County Treasurer Rosella Voigt and City Clerk Dave Smith of Algona. The primary question was — "Do the counly and city treasuries have enough funds on hand to invest in interest bearing securities?" The answer, put simply by both, was "no". All research into the mat- ier was based on financial statements at tho close of business during recent years. Kossuth county normally has from $800,000 to $1,000,000 in the treasury Dec. 31. AH county banks are designated an official depositories by an act of the board of supervisors and a portion of the county cash is deposited in each bank. While the money doesn't bring any interest into the coffers, it isn't allowed to Ho around idly. Warrants are drawn on each bank regularly, based on a percentage setup, figured by the treasurers office. Tho balance in tho treasurer's fund helps determine the mlllage levy for the succeeding year and the balance isn't allowed to get too low Sn order to provide for possible emergency expenditures that might arise from time to time. The city balance ai the end of 19S8 was $168,899.42, in* eluding $20,000 in K and H series U.S. bonds, which draw from 2 S A to 3 Vt percent interest, The balance of $148,* 899.42 was on deposit in the Iowa State and Security State banks here. A good balance is necessary at the year's end. The city of Algona receives no tax money from the county treasurer until April and all city bills must be paid from the cash balance during the .first three months each year. ., 'According to Mi«« Voigt, the county's largest balance is normally about April 1 each year, when it is not unusual to have $2,000,000 banked. The money disappears rapidly, however, as county schools and other funds get their shares of the balance. of service men and women. Muscatine Counly attorney Robert Wilson had requested an opinion on the subject. Erbe said money for maintenance of the graves must come from the county general fund. The attorney general also said there is no provision or remedy available to the counly to forco or compel service men and women's relatives to provide for this care. ' * * * GOP REORGANIZATION — The Republican party in Iowa is now t>he minority party, according to GOP state chairman L. L. Jurgemeyer. In a rather frank report on the condition of tho Republican parly, Jurgemeyer urged Republicans to' stop living in the past and to assume the responsibility for good party organization. Jurgemeyer made his comments in a 31-page printed booklet entitled, "Blueprint for Re building." The GOP chairman said in an introductory state .ment contained in tho,,pamphlel "the purpose of this study of Re publican policy and oi'ganizatior is to stimulate the party anc assist the party in rebuilding." One of many recommertdalion made by Jurgemeyer was'that he be retired as stale chairman about May } and lhat a new full lime salaried state chairman >be chosen to replace him. "Our party has been in deep trouble politically in this stale for a number of years," the Clinton lawyer declared. He blamed "weak pavly organization and factionalism'! for the decline. "If the Republican party is to rebuild in Iowa, the sins of a parly built upon one parly domination must disap- lo provide maintenance for graves pear," he asserted. SEEING SCHOOL REORGANIZATION— EGG BILL Among the many pieces oJ school legislation introduced this ossion is one to moke a sweeping 'eorganizatibn of school districts. This measure, termed "radical" in some quarters, would reduce the number of stale public school districts from 2,779 to 99 — one per county by July 1 of 1900. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Keith Dunton (D), Thornburg, would also create 20 intermediate school districts which would have the function o£ supervising and assisting the county school units and would provide a basis of appeal from actions of county unit boards of education. * » » OIL REWARD -— The Iowa house has passed and sent to the senale a bill offering a $75,000 reward for discovery of Ihe first oil well in Iowa. The well would have lo produce a least 50 barrels of marketable crude oil a day for 60 days. Rep Neil Johns (R), Toledo, chie sponsor of the bill, said' he ha been informed there are untapped oil resources of profitable size in many parts of Iowa. » * * COMMERCE COMMISSION — The Iowa house has voted, 91 to 13, to make the state commerce commission posts appointive in stead of eleclive effeclivc in 1963 rhe change has been endorsed by )olh political parties and Governor Loveless. The move to make ,he commerce commission appointive follows on the heels of in investigation of the commission last year by the legislative investigative committee on election practices and procedures. Rep. Donald Kimball (R), Fay- cite newspaper publisher, said appointing the commissioners would give the governor direct responsibility over one of the "islands of authority" in state government. Rep. Eugene Hailing (R), Orient, opposed the move claiming appointment of commissioners is a "step toward destroying self-government."
