To have lived through two consecutive terms of state democratic rule is somewhat of a miracle for the many republicans working in the statehouse. Now, with the third straight democratic term coming up, few indeed are expected to be the survivals among minority party members who have succeeded in hanging on to the state payroll. That's the impression one gets in noting the pressure of seekers after state jobs through the most popular employment office in Iowa, democratic state headquarters. \ Not that this is anything new in the evolution of st?tehcus<? personnel. They say it was evca .harder to find a democratic state employe before 1932 as it will be to locate a republican with a state job after 1936 . •c * « PROFITS OF LIQUOR Favorite suggestion among legislators answering a school revenue questionnaire was to have the.general.assembly divert liquor profits to the scho'ols. Such profits total about $1,000,000 a year, but the school forces, with many a dry among their backers, are shying clear of the idea. They want such money, if it is given to them, to lose its identity in the state general fund first. Incidentally, the schools intend to ask for a state appropriation totaling $12,000,000. They get considerably less than a million now. In most cases local school taxes would be correspondingly lower, however, they say. # « V EXPENSIVE PROPOSITION Heads together, republican state central committee leaders decided to file suits impounding voting machines against a possible recount in the governor's race. "It won't cost us a total of more than $35," they reasoned. Committee talent thereupon was used Reason for the survey: The state is paying $65,000 a year rent to house departments in outside buildings. Largest space user is the liquor commission with its offices and central warehouse using 100,000 square feet, or 'a five story building. * * * Will Discuss Swine Management.

"3 MEN ON A HORSE" IS YEAR'S LAUGH HIT "Three Men on a Horse" is the side-splitting story of Erwin (pronounced Oiwin), a meek little writer of greeting card verses— who has the weird gift of picking winners in horse races. He keeps that secret to himself, and as he rides to and fro to work from his home, he jots down in a little book his prognostications and imaginary winnings. His nagging wife finds the book, denounces him as a philanderer, and browbeats him to the point of desperation; When his boss orders him to produce fifty Mother's day greeting verses before the noon whistle blows—his troubles begin to pyramid—and drive him to a gin mill to drown his woes in'drink. It is there that fate catches up with him. Three gamesters are talking about horses and Oiwin timidly offers a tip. They laugh at him and bet on the favorite who loses. Seeing that the little man- 'has something'—they imprison him and proceed to get rich on his tips on the winners. They phone to his boss that he is sick—and when his wife hears this—she rouses the police and a city wide search is instituted. Then begins as uproarious a comph'cation as ever.set an audience chortling. The' cast ,is headed by Frank McHugh and Joan BlondelL Carol Hughes plays Oiwin's weepy wife. The trio of gamesters are played with loud gusto by Allen Jenkins, Teddy Hart and Sam Levene—the latter two from the Broadway stage production.

Fii-^t paragraph is as follows: "Staggering finder his crushing burden of taxes, iu a state which was practically bankrupt, the citizens ~ of every class had now become a mere cog in the vast machinery of government.
