tHorsddy, S«pf. 10, RACKETS INVASION frtVesfiQ&tidm Hdve prdved conclusively that in some segments of the American labor movement toddy, racketeers have gained a stranglehold oft unionism. Not "all uni&ns, but some of tf»6 m6st powerful. They have or may set back the cause of honest, respected unionism a good many years. It is to be hoped that either from within'— , by honest and legitimate union members themselves — or through lawful acts of the federal government, .these" racketeers can be booted out, jailed of deported according to the crimes they have committed and the citizenship they enjoy. • •' Now it seems that racketeers have dlso "invaded the field of finance and 'are operatjng from Wall Street addresses, taking advantage of a universal interest in stocks and bonds. The racketeer bucket shop operators With a front of respectability are doing about the same thing in the field of finance that they have done in labor. They ore making a move to take over, to milk and fleece the public, in another lucrative field." It is sbmetimes hard for the average person to understand how this can be so, ourselves among them. If there are no existing laws today that empower legally constituted government to deal properly with racketeers, in labor, in finance, and in other endeavors, then such laws should be passed, and quickly. Let's eradicate the termites. * * ,. * MfcSi mistakes occur when a man is overtired or overconfident. — Humboldi Republican.- STRICTLY BUSINESS cs ill E. Call Street— Ph.

WALLER, Editor REVAMPING THE COUNTIES pbr o year or two, now, there have been efforts from some sources to revamp the county government setup in Iowa. This includes suggestions for consolidation of counties, and also of county offices. To show how the cycle turns, it was only a few years ago that the idea was sold which resulted In separating the office of county as* sessor from that of county auditor. At that time, critics said the twd funcflbrts Were inefficient and burdensome for one offfceY Now (Hs suggested that the proper thing to do is combine all the offices of a county intd two or three central units. The State University of Iowa recently sent but a news bulletin, part of which is reprinted here, on the subject of consolidating of cbunties: "IQWA CITY, IOWA, Aug. 29 - Reducing the number of Iowa counties w6s 6ne 6f several major changes proposed for an administrative reorganization of the state urged in a study completed recently by a graduate student at Jhe State University of Iowa. The study also revealed a need for the sep. oration of legislative and administrative functions so that County governments could give the greater, service called for by population gains and increased administrative duties. Written as a master's thesis in the department of political science by William L. Morrow of Springfield, Mo., the study suggested that the counties should average 100,000-in population, whicli research has found to be the most efficient county size. ,; compared the operative efficiency of Davis'County in southeastern Iowa, with a population of approximately 10,000, and Linfr County in east central Iowa, witr^a population 6'f slightly oyer 100,000. \ In the smaller county a per capita cost ol $1.01. paid to support the board of supervisors' operations, as compared with 14 cents per capita in Linn County. In another proposed major change, Mor row suggested, "Instead of being an administra tive arm of the Iowa State Fegislature, the boarc Plant Foreman full of baseball news.

It is interesting, also, to note that the suggestion comes from a resident" of Missouri, not Iowa. There are unquestionably ways and means that county government can be made more efficient and more economical. Yet it might be wise , to go pretty slow before any drastic revisions take place; sometimes these "good ideas" have a way of backfiring and result in more confusioVi and greater expense than ever existed before.
