Exchange — We were interested to note recently that Senator Bourke B. Hickenloope.r and and State GOP chairman L. L. Jurgemcyer, differ quite radically on the status of the Republican party in Iowa. You will probably remember Jurgcmeyer's earlier contention that the GOP is now the minority party in Iowa and that a major overhauling of the Republican organization^ is necessary. Conversely, Senator Hickenlooper contends that since the t GOP cdntrols some 80 percent of the county offices and most of the state offices, that the Republican party is the dominant party. Frankly, we are prone to go along with Jurge- iwycr's later statement that the control of the slate is now "touch and' go" and that unless the GOP settles down and comes out of the current legislature with at least part of the things people arc asking fcr, the Depiocrals are going to make further gains in the next election. We still Hxink that the parly should seriously consider Jurgpmpycr's casing for a major e,ver- hauling and a r£-cr,eatiop of a dynamic Republican parj.y in Iowa. * > * W V HEAPED FX)R B TRPUBLE EJs-loore, £&JifM keajJejvPje&s ^ * 4 Gov.ernr 'ments are no different than'individuals in money matters.
