Only Iowa stood to lose $3,000,000 unles it adopted a state unemployment insurance setup by Dec. 31—and,, got it approved by the federal social security board. Gov. Clyde L. Herring, senator- elect, opposed calling a special session of the legislature to pass a state system,, contended congress probably could be induced to alter federal compliance requirements, said it probably would be impossible to get a law -passed and approved in time anyway. Take No Chances. But Gov-Elect Nels G. Kraschel and Atty. Gen.-Elect John Mitchell didn't want to take a chance on congress, thought the measure could be pushed through in time to insure that unemployment insurance taxes paid by Iowa employers this year could be retained by the state. So Governor Herring, at their urgent request, called a special session, specified it was to consider unemployment insurance only. As the week ended the committee drafting the insurance bill had it nearly ready for the legislature. Benefits are Listed. The committee agreed maximum unemployment benefits would be $15 a week, the minimum, $5 for a maximum of 15 weeks. It also agreed that employers would pay the tax, 90 per cent going to the state for payment of benefits, 10 per cent to the federal government for administration. In addition it agreed on a merit system for employers which it hoped would induce them to maintain steady work for their em- ployes and thus cut down their tax rate. But what the legislators, who meet at 10 a. m., Monday, will agree to—that's something else again. One thing is certain, though, if they are going to save that $3,000,000, they've got to act fast. Five are Victims. COSTLY—Early one morning this week, a Great Western freight train streamed out of New Hampton, south. At Fredericksburg, a passenger train tooted out of town north. And somebody had blundered, At Boyd, the freight train crew apparently became aware of-the blunder, for the freight stopped, started backing up. But it hardly got into reverse when the passenger train roared out of the fog, plowed into it, killed four trainmen, fatally injured a fifth. Who blundered? That's what railroad officials, interstate commerce officials, county officers sought to determine. Wrote Extortion Letters. THEN AND NOW—Early this | week, John Scherbring was n' Colesburg farmer and township trustee. Then one evening officers seized a man who tried to pick up a dummy package in front of a Colesburg store, placed there as a trap for the person who wrote Miss Vina Lovett, 50, two extortion letters demanding $3,500. The man was Scherbring, who admitted he wrote the letters. Why? "Because" he said, he had a mortgage on his farm, other debts, needed money badly. * # * NUMBER ONE—The nation's 'no. 1 public rat," nominated by G-Man J.
