fhufictey, April 23, IOWA TO LOSE HOUSE SEAT The census of 1960, if all indications are true, will result in the loss of one seat in the national House of Representatives for Iowa. There are 435 seats in the House, proportioned on the basis Of population. The heavy BENSON'S AGRICULTURE RECORD The House Committee on Agriculture, after a series of hearings involving the Department of Agriculture, headed by Etra Benson, has reduced the information to a few important, summarized sentences.

The greatest losses seem likely to occur in eastern states, New York,-Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, etc. Michigan' stands to gain two, lOwa, Kansas and Minnesota to lose one each. Whether the new States of Alaska and Hawaii will be included in the 435 total, or whether an aditional seat or two is added to compensate for their inclusion in the Union has not been determined. Agriculture by Mr Benson, and refute just about every favorable thing that has been said .about the Secretary. Neither the farmer, the consumer, or the taxpayer, can be very happy with the statistics. Here are some of the most important: • The farmer's gross income was $15.3 billion in 1952; it was $13.1 billion in 1958. • In 1952 the Agriculture Department's annual budget was $1 billion; in 1960 the bud This leads to speculation, however, as to get has been set at $6.7 billion. what realignment and reapportionment will take place in Iowa when the present number of Representatives in Congress is reduced by one. Instead of eight seats in that splendid body, Iowa will have only seven. Somewhere, somebody is going to lose when it happens. * * * GOOD ADVICE, PROFESSOR! "Don't grow old, grow upl" That's the advice of Prof. Laurence J. Taylor to harassed businessmen. "You have nothing to fear except the crises you generate yourself", he though- fully adds. Maturity may be explained in many ways. It can be a case of the hairline rising and chests falling, It can be a time when you hit the frightening forties or the frustrating fifties, or the time when you fear sorhe bright young fellow is impatient to push you out says the good professor, is a great Achievement of maturity gives',,you the power io apply your learned understanding' to^the* Investigation of problems entailed m your work, problems about people who work with you,-and } roblems involved in ,your home, community* Cation and the whole world. • Four million people have left the American farm in the past six years. • The purchasing power of farm prices is the lowest in Iff years. ..-•• The actual spending by the Department of Agriculture is now 56% of the total net income of American farmers. • •In .1953, the Department of Agriculture had what Benson termed a "swollen bureaucracy" of 67,406 employees!: as of last November the Department now has 89,464 employees, an .(increase of 32.,percent, and slated to be 98*487 by next June. , . '' < ' , • Benson's own office expenses.were $2.1 million in 1953; they are budgeted for $2.8 million this coming year. • , The above facts simply illustrate one basic fact. Benson has not reduced surplus,, expenses, employees or food prices in any way. He has reduced the farmer's income. " He is still unable to understand that' lower .support prices are no key, to a balanced agricultural economy.

Briii News Tribune — The new 24 ft. stretch of paving-on No.'18. east of Britt is a full-fledged highway now. It -was initiated Friday with its first bloody "highway homicide." Three men met death in a headori collision. Again the stark realization was graphically .illustrated that "you can't depend on what the other driver will do." A routine inspection trip by two Northwestern Pell Telephone men was brought to tragic end when another driver wound up in their traffic lane, on a wide open stretch of new highway. The death record for the new highway has started out with the number "3". It's often regarded as a lucHy number. In, this instance let's hope we can be lucky and stop at three. But it's no consolation for the three wives, >• brothers, sisters, parents and four children of tragic, victims last Friday. • ''.:... ' ':'..
