' The material contained here* in does noi necessarily con* form to the editorial policy of this newspaper.) SCHOOL ATHLETIC of the most talked about , bills before the Iowa legislature is a measure proposing to place high school athletics under the supervision of the state department of public instruction. Supporters of the bill charged at a public hearing! in the chamber of the House of Representatives that the rules of the Iowa High School Athletic Association are "arbitrary and unreasonable." Wendell Gibson, Des Moines attorney, said the Iowa High School Athletic .Association has one rule which threatens suspension to any school represented by an attorney or accbmpanied by a delegation in making an appeal, Gibson was one of three speakers who spoke on .-behalf of the proposed legislation. , Lyle Quinn, executive secretary of the IHSAA, said in defense that the association conducts its elections by a democratic vote of the member schools and that the r,ule on attorneys and delegations had. been adopted before he joined the association 20 years ago. , Evert Weeks, Des Moines, a former champion swimmer and a swimming contest official, charged that the rules of the IHSAA - do not conform ' with those of the National Swimming Association, "If 1 Iowa should produce a national swimming cham-i pion, it is extremely doubtful if he could be recognized nationally," Weeks asserted. In rebuttal Quinn said the ' national rules do •not cover the kind of contests held in Iowa. Another speaker, Loran Bra'u- ght, former Polk County probation officer and now reading clerk of the house,' objected to .the IHSAA' rule ', that boys on parole or prgbatign^are not allowed to, parucfpate'Tn competitive'- athle^' itic's. 1 .

Donald KlUfiball (R), F*y- ctte, one of thfe sponsol-s' of the bill, asked Qulhn whether .he profited as an official 6f the town High School Insurance Company through an advertisement oh.tho calendars distributed by the IHSAA, "If you .have reference to my salary from the association, ye&" said Qulnn. '"If y$u are inferring that 1 would <benfc- fit from commissions or anything like that, the answer is n6," ' Quirin receives a salary ,of $10,125 •from the association and $3,980 as secretary of the Hf " Schbol Insurance Company.* •' * i • SENATE CONFIRMATION — The Iowa Senate has confl: ed the appointment of Joe Q: stal of Carroll • as state superhv tendent of banking for a terrn expiring June 30, 1961. Gronstal, an independent, was appointed,tb the banking post in 1957 following the death of banking superin* tendent Lee Chandler.' GronstaTs salary will be $12,000 annually. Governor Loveless has.with* drawn the name of Judge ODoh Allen to a six year term on the Iowa Employment Security Commission. Loveless withdrew the appointment at the request of Allen who said he would have tb take a $400 pay cut in salary i$ the new position. Allen, former pes Moines municipal court judge, is presently legal counsel; for the commission. , t • * * '••,:• UNSEAT WATTS — The Iowa house voted 56-45 toi unseat Stanley Watts (D), Murray and seat Cecil Lutz (R), Osceola. The official state canvass had listed Watts the winner by 12 votes. A contest committee in the lower chamber had recommended unseating Watts declaring that Lutz won over Watts by a 21 vote margin in- the November general election. Democrats strongly .protested the contest committee report on the grounds that the 'committee would not allow Watts to call 12 witnesses on his behalf.. Watts charged on the House floor that the Clarke County election last Nov. 4!' was the rpttenest mess I've ever seen." Before the vote was taken he vowed that he was going to come back to the house, two years, from now. "I'm going to -make' a house to house cam-- paign and I'm going to bury Mr Grain Stored In Iowa Is Up 32 Million Bu. The Kossuth county ASC office has been advised that Io\vn farmers will be asked to place a record amount of their price-supported commodities under resenf this year to assist the government in solving one of its biggest grain storage problems. In 1959 Iowa reseal goals are CO million bushels of corn, 1.7 million bushels of oats and 3 million bushels of soybeans, according to a statement issued by Joseph F. Carber, chairman of the state ASC committee. These state goals compare with 63.2 million bushels of corn and 1.1 million bushels of oats resealed in 1958. . Grain Reseating 1 vM^ttfl^V Slgona ®ppet ALOONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 1959 VOL, 96 - NO 10 16 Cents Bu. Storage In return for resenting and keeping the commodities on the farm for another year instead of delivering them to the government when the loans and purchase agreements mature in 1959, producers will receive storage payments of 10 cents a bushel for corn, 12 cents a bushel for oats, and 16 or 17 cents n bushel for soybeans. Producers may redeem their resented commodities at any time and receive prorated storage payments for periods of more than 00 days but less than one year. Heavy rescaling, combined with expected redemptions through repayment of loans and a normal amount of non-deliveries on pur- chase agreements, should reduce the total quantity of price- supported commodities which arc eligible for delivery in settlement periods this year to a point where storage space required to handle actual deliveries can be provided by commercial warehouses and present government binsites. 32 Million Bu. More ASC officials have estimated that 241.7 million bushels of price-supported Iowa grains, flaxseed, and soybeans will bo involved in the 1959 settlement periods, or 32 million bushels more than in 19511. Of the estimated total involved in this year's .settlements, approximately 129 million bushels are expect- ed to be delivered to the govern* ment and the remainder account* ed for through resealing, redemptions, and unfulfilled purchase agreements. Deliveries in the 1958 setth'TTient periods amounted to 93.5 million bushels. To encourage producers to re- scnl farm-stored grains as well as to provide additional on-farm storage .space which may be needed to handle this year's crops, the government has announced that facility building loans will be offered in 1959. Such loans may be obtained by farmers through thejur county ASC office for as milcrr as 80 percent of the cost of the>rieecled facilities. The loans draw 4 percent interest and are repayable in four annual installments. ' '.h&'en adopted "overwhelming- Lutz in votes," he declared. With that comment, he stalked out of the House chamber and the House voted on the committee report. • * * GAS TAX COMMITTEE — A ten member committee has been named to disburse funds for an investigation of the motor vehicle refund division of the stale treasurer's office.

The Senate redistricting committee brought out the Farm Bureau Federation's reapportionment plan which calls for a senate of CO members based on population and a house of 99 members, one from each county.
