ROCKWELL—Dr. and Mrs. INDORSEMENT LATER This business of requiring all state job applicants to get recommendations first from the various dukes and earls of the democratic party is not as rigid as advertised. Sometimes the man is decided upon and the indorsements follow, somewhat as an afterthought. For instance: W. W. Akers, chief of the Iowa bureau of investigation beginning next Friday, lacked he indorsement of his home county chairman. Whereupon Governor Herring called the chairman and requested the indorsement of Akcrs. The desired recommendation followed, the letter of the party i law had been observed, and Akcrs' appointment followed. * * --t HOMECOMING FOR FOARDE They say State Auditor Storms is preparing a homecoming for J. J. "Pat" Foarde, assistant attorney general at present. Foarde is said to have the inside track for Cloyd Burns' job as deputy state auditor. Burns recently quit to return to private business. Foarde worked in the auditor's office until several months ago when he was named an assistant attorney general. ^ *i * POLITICAL QUOTATIONS As 1936 draws to a close many a pithy quotation to fall from the lips of Iowa political leaders is recalled. For example, on the "nonpolitical" drought meeting of President Roosevelt and Governor Landon in Des Moines, Governor Herring said. "Neither one of them can re- j before Nov. 3—"I have been reliably informed that the democratic central committee has given up all hope of carrying the Iowa state ticket and retains one small lingering hope of saving the state for Roosevelt." Attorney General O'Connor, pointing out that he had been away from his private practice for foir'r years—"I cannot afford to do so for another term of attorney general." Governor-elect Kraschel, after the unofficial count showed him winner—"I am accepting congratulations." Possible-Contestant-of-Kraschel-Victory George Wilson—° " (The asterisks meaning no congratulations for Kraschel yet.) T * TIGHTROPE WALKER With the new administration in control, Friday, Alma Berry, the jest political tightrope walker in Iowa, leaves the attorney general's office. Mrs. Berry has been secretary o democratic Attorney General O'Connor for four rears. At the same time, she 1. Campaigned for republican enator L. J. Dickinson. 2. Was active in the Landon pre- eonvention and pre-election campaigns. 3. Was the key cog in Mrs. E. T. Meredith's organization of demo- :ratic women for Landon. To complicate the situation a little more, she formerly was secretary to H. M. Havner for lc years. Havner was the chief legal gun in the Sioux City investigation which peppered the attorney general's office with a whole fistful of indictments. How she kept her job under such circumtsantes is a mystery to political observers. For a' that, however, they Eloper Runs Over Mother-in-Law MOVIE E By D. B. K.

According to police, Rehberg is alleged to have run over his bride's mother with an auto when she attempted to stop the couple's elopement. The couple married, but hearing Mrs. Hossbach was seriously injured they returned, sorry for their actions. Charles City News agree she never betrayed her boss in her numerous dealings on the other side of the political picture.
