The material contained herein does not necessarily dan* form id the editorial policy of this newspaper,) ^RELATIVES ON PAYROLL — _ State comptroller Glenn D. Sarsfield has eliminated four relatives of Iowa Supreme Court justice^ ffom the payroll pending reconsideration by the high bench on the question as to whether the four should be employed. All four have been acting as secretaries to the justices to whom they are related. The four are related to Justice William Bliss, Mason City, Norman Hays, Knoxville, both Republicans and T. Eugene Thornton, Waterloo and Harry Garrelt, Corydon, both Democrats. , State Comptroller Sarsfield iaid he was not trying to tell the high tribunal what the law is on nepotism, leaving that decision to the supreme court. Prior tip Sarsfield's action, the justices had stated they do not regard the employment of members of their families as a violation of the nepotism statute. • • * * JUDICIAL BILL — For the second time the Senate has passed a measure to revamp Iowa's court system. The upper chamber, by a vote of 31 to 19, adopted a proposed constitutional amendment to change the method for selecting district and supreme court judges. Proponents of the measure said under the proposed system a judge would run on his record rather than against another candidate. The Senate had approved the plan earlier, but voted to reconsider the resolution, 1 .**..» SALARY RAISES Subcommittees of the house and senate have approved a bill •which would set the salary of the governor of the state at $20,000 a year. The governor presently receives $13,500 annually plus a $4,000 expense account. The^bill Would eliminate .the expense account. \ In all, the bills calls for 64 stat- fitory changes in the present law. ..Among the increases recommend- ttd were State auditor, treasurer, Secretary of state .and agriculture secretary from $8,500 to $10,000, attorney general from $9,500 to $11,000, safety commissioner from $$500 to $9,000, highway com- .missioners from $4,500 to. $5,000, * insurance commissioner from $7,500 to $10,000 and comptroller from $9,000 to $12,000. [ All pay increases would become effective the lirst of .next year. TRUCK SPEED BILL _. The Iowa house has defeated bill to • increase to 60 miles an hour;; the speed limit for trucks and < Abuses ., on' 'primary- roads. •Speed limit-orv trucks at the'pre- *sent time is 50 mph at all times and buses may not exceed 50 at night, and 55 during the daytime. ! > The House met as a "committee on the whole" to hear, the safety department's position on the bill. Safety Commissioner Russell I. Brown said he was opposed to increasing truck and bus speeds for safety reasons. The house went along with Brown arid voted down "the bill. ' - v-' , r * * • * STATE SUPERINTENDENT Rep. J. Henry Lucken ,(R), Akron and 19 other representatives have, introduced a bill which would make the dffice of state superintendent of public instruction an elective instead of an appointive position. , Under the proposed measure candidates would be selected on a non-party basis. The two candidates who received the largest votes in the primary would square off against one another in 1 the general election. At the present time, the superintendent is appointed by the state board* of public instruction, subject to confirmation by the senate. > » * • MONEYS AND CREDITS , An attempt to repeal the state's moneys arid credits tax has died , a "legal death." The attorney general's office has ruled that .the six mill tax can not be repealed until the Korean war bonds are paid which^won't be for another 20 years. A portion of the moneys and credits .tax is pledged to pay off the bonus bonds. > Sen. Jack Schroeder (R), Dav- enportjiad requested the opinion. Schroeder, senate majority leader, had planned to seek the repeal of the money and credits tax.. * * * LIQUOR BILL A- bill has been tossed in the House hopper calling for sale oi '.liquor by the drink without local • option. Chief sponsor of the bill is Rep. John Duffy (D), Dubuque. ,» f 'T}ie Wstory of local option is < a history of prohibition.

The bill also requires the com- troller to make a statement in writing once a month to the treasurer on the amount of idle funds Lhat could be invested in interest- searing securities for n period of time the money foreseeably would not be needed. Treasurer M. L. Abrahamson has withdrawn 27 million dollars of dormant slate deposits in some 550 banks and has invested nearly 17 million in federal securities. * * . * MAJORITY Oft MINORITY? Attorney General Norman Erbe \as ruled the Republican party is the majority party In Iowa. Lt. Gov. Edward (Nick) McManus requested a ruling ,from 4 the attorney general on the subject. In his eqttest McManus noted that a majority of lowans voting for governor in the last general election voted Democratic. He also took note that the Republican State hairman L, L. Jurgemeyer had stated that the Republican party s now the minority party. Erbe, a Republican and a possi- >le candidate for the GOP gubernatorial nomination in I960, said Jurgemeyer's statement is a voluntary view by a private citizen, lepublicans hold a majority of seats in both the 'House and Senate and control the standing committees in the legislature.^ McManus had raised the ques- ion regarding appointments to he legislative interim committee. The opinion means that the Lieu* enant Governor will .name two Republicans and one Democrat to 'nterim Committee vacancies. * * • BAN SUNDAY AUTO SALE — The House voted, 78 to 26, to aan sale of new or used cars on Sunday. The bill was endorsed-by the Iowa Automobile Dealers Association. In the course of discussion on the House floor it was brought out that 95* per cent of the dealers belonging to the association favored the Sunday closing as a means of keeping unsafe autos off the highways. It-was explained that cars sold on Sunday may not be properly checked for safety because most service facilities are closed. The measure now goes to the Senate. * * » SCHOOL DISTRICTS Speaking at Atlantife City, N. J., State Superintendent of . Publiq Instruction J. C. Wright declared there are small school districts in the U.S. that continue operating a high school for no" better reason than to be able to-field a basketball team. Wright said that if this is a major reason for continuing to operate a small high school we are in danger of "letting the tail wag the dog.." " He told the American Association of School Administrators that there are many school districts in Iowa and throughout the nation that are too small" to provide adequate educational grams. pro- Salesman Dies • On.
