4-Atgena (la.) Upper Itet ThufttJay, July 36, THE MOUNTAIN & THE MOLE HILL A banquet which cosl between $700 and $800 in state highway funds has been severely criticized in our state press. The banquet followed the taking of office of new members of the State Highway Commission. The new members give the Commission a Democratic majority fot 1 the first time in over 20 years. The banquet was perhaps a mistake; but perhaps it was also a logical event. , , , •• By way of contrast, earlier this year it came to light that the State Treasurer of Iowa, and his successors for some 20 years,- have had large amounts of state money deposited in 640 separate banks, none of it drawing interest. Disclosure of this resulted in withdrawal of some of the funds, and redeposit where it began earning 3 percent interest and up. It is estimated that the state has lost over $5 million dollars in interest in the past 10 years alone by this prac- STRICTLY BUSINESS i«" m m ki Perhaps the State Highway Commission made a mistake in holding a banquet for employees and spending $700 and $800 in the process. But all we can say is that if the state treasurers of Iowa had kept state funds invested and drawing interest for the past 20 years, the amount spent on that banquet would have been paid for hundreds of times over. Now which disclosure is the mountain and which one is the molehill? * * * SOAP BOX DERBY TROUBLES We remember when the Algona JayCees conducted several Soap Box Derby contests, since dropped. ' , The Soap Box Derby began as a fun contest for kids, a contest of skill in .making a Derby racer, and of handling it in a race. But it begins to look as though maybe the adults have ruined TOM MARTIN TO RUN AGAIN? Maquokela Pr<*« — After the "bad press" Iowa Senator Tom Martin received last winter following his hesWancy in disclosing office staff payments to his sow. we had a hunch that perhaps he wasn't planning to run for re-election. Thus, furthering his public relations with the Iowa press, and voters wouldn't make too much difference. As the months went on, more politically-interested people gained this impression. And along with it. they figured that Governor Herschel Loveless might gtiin a senate seat by a virtual default. The reasoning was that no Republican, other than Martin, could be "built-up" in time to offer really serious competition to Loveless. With Iowa tax revenue higher than expected there is no doubt that the two-term Democratic governor is riding a peak in personal popularity After all, he need only point out to the voters that he was instrumental in holding the sales lax to 2% . . and he can prove that we* didn't need the increase (at least for the 1959-60 term). But now we're not so sure that Martin isn t going to run again. A release we received .from him July 2 gave a complete disclosure of salaries paid members of his staff. This included sums paid his son, Dick, and a sum paid his wife. Dick Martin's average annual pay was $9,144.14. The senator's son was 34 years old and Robert Waggoner, received $11,605.51 per year Both left his payroll prior to the 1958 campaign.

These are the workers who'bring about the success of an election and they would like a reward. Nixon has indicated his interest in these fields. The pai-ty men want someone who is nationally known. They don't want the job of selling the" man's name before they can get to work. Nixon fits that very well. They want a man nationally known for'the right reasons'. He represents more of the business interests than the labor interests. There is one fact io be observed the Republicans are not united behind Nixon the way they were behind Eisenhower. As far as Iowa is concerned there is overwhelming support for Nixon. There are many Republicans who favor Nelson Rockefeller with a great deal of hope because he is the hope of the Republican party in the East. . Some Republicans think that Rockefeller will Service be a more palatable candidate in I960. Nixon has go back over many years to collect these taxes.
