We Suggest You Purchase the Diamond of RAY SENEY BACKSTAGE IN IOWA POLITICS Special Session of Iowa Legislature in 1918 Com- Dieted Its Duties in Two Hours. By GEORGE MILLS Iowa Dally Press. Those party leaders who seek to adjourn the special session of the legislature "out of the trenches by .Christmas" might have procured Rabbi Mannheimer of Des Moines to offer the-in vocation the first day. The good rabbi handled that portion of .the ceremony in a special session in 1918, and the legislature completed its duties in two hours. Said duties, however, consisted merely of approving the federal constitutional amendment granting voting rights,to women. The present- special was called only to consider social security legislation, but many an observer will be surprised if the lawmakers withstand the temptation of straying off into the green pastures of forbidden subjects. * * « FARM MEMBER Prime point of attack by the republicans in the last campaign was the lack of a dirt farmer on the board of assessment and review. Last week democratic lawyer- member D. L. Murrow of Corydon eminently qualified as the "farm member" of the state tax board by buying more than 800 acres of Iowa land. * * * BIRD IN HAND One somewhat alien subject which might come up in the special session is that of confirming state board and commission appointments made since the last session. It reauires no "G" man deduction to discover that it is easier to get a few names by a democratic senate than by a republican one. And the soecial session senate is composed of 26 democrats and 24 republicans, whereas the regular session body will be republican, 28 to 22. Three most important interim appointments before one legislature or another ,in the next few months are Andrew Stewart, on the liquor commission, D. L. Murrow on the-tax board, and Leslie Ross on the parole board. • Mere majority is needed to confirm Stewart and Ross, two-thirds for the approval of Murrow. All are democrats. A # ft MISCELLANEOUS ITEM Sly is the dig at a fellow department in the legislative askings of the state board of control. Said askings are reported to include an item labeled, "Miscellaneous, $1,500." With'a twinkle in its collective eye, the board says it wants that MERRY CHRISTMAS money to help lobby its appropriation bill through the regular session of the legislature. * * * SECRET GOINGS ON You would think the forty-seventh general assembly was a lodge, with pass words, secret meetings and the like. A couple of, weeks ago 28 "of the 28 republican senators held a q: t session here. Last week two separate secret caucuses were held, besides one nonpartisan caucus. Democrats held theirs in their hotel stronghold, while the republicans got together in another hostelry where even the bellboys wore Landon buttons a few months ago. One nonjournalistic observer who got in on the meetings reported, "There were enough legislators here to have passed the social security act." * * * THE SPEAKERSHIP At least one political bigwig, high in party councils, isn't afraid of a knock-down battle for the speakership of the house in the regular session. In fact, he doesn't expect the deadlock to last more than one day. Commenting on the 54-54 tie in thehouse, he said, 'Those 108 fellows couldn't vote on party lines four times if they wanted to without somebody making a mistake." Headquarters Unit of National Guard Holds Yule Party The fifteenth annual Christmas party of Headquarters company of lie local national guard was held Sunday evening at the Country Tavern. The dinner, served in old Christmas style, was in charge of Corp. Nick Chutes, manager of the Tavern. Sergt. Harry Ellsworth was in charge of decorations for the occasion while Private Bernard Johnson acted as Santa Claus and distributed presents to all. The evening was spent playing games and recalling events of the members during the last annual encampment and with a general discussion of the coming encampment to be held next August at Fort Ripley, Minn. At the conclusion of the evening's entertainment the hat was passed around for the Globe-Gazette's Christmas Cheer fund and with the generosity of Robert Hirsch, the company's treasurer, S10 was raised. While the men were attending the stag party, their wives were entertained at the home of Mrs. Harry Ellsworth where the evening was spent in playing monopoly. Lieut. Will E. Hall announced that the next regular drill of the company will be held on Tuesday evening, Dec. 29. Mistake Is Reported on Relief; Increase, Not Decrease Found DES MOINES, (ff)— The Iowa Emergency Relief administration reported an error was made in computing the number of state relief cases during November and that they actually increased instead of decreased as reported. Total cases receiving unemployment relief during the month were 17,18fi, aii increase of 437 families over October, or a 2 per cent increase between October and November this year as compared with a 5 per cent increase in relief families during the same period a year ago, an IERA report stated. The major reason for the increase, the report said, was seasonal needs. DIES AFTER TWO YEARS' ILLNESS Mrs. Estella M. Edwards, 74, Succumbs; Funeral Wednesday. Mrs. Estella M.
