Iowa May Have State Budget Director Again Des Moines, (ff>) —There's a move on to re-establish the office of state budget director in the Iowa government setup. A recommendation that a budget director succeed the state comptroller with no change in personnel might be presented at Tuesday's meeting of the state governmental reorganization committee. Whether the recommendation is passed on to the 1951 legislature is up to the committee. It was established by the 1949 legislature to suggest ways of streamlining the state government. Sources whose names cannot be used say the proposal is that State Comptroller Ray Johnson become budget director. The objective is closer supervision of the expenditure of state funds. The sources say Johnson recently attended the national convention of state budget directors to obtain information oil the operation of such offices in other states. The office of Iowa budget director was discontinued in 1933 and made into the office of the state comptroller. The budget director used to audit state office books and the auditor's office wrote the warrants. After the change was made the auditor's office took over checking the books and the comptroller became the state's check writer. The comptroller assists the governor in hearing requests of the various state departments for biennial funds prior to the convening of the legislature. The details of the proposal to re-establish the office of budget director were not revealed. Those in position to know the details declined to comment. In colonial times, the branches of the witch hazel shrub served as divining rods in searching for water and ores. Truman Asks Farm, Labor Co-Ope ration St. Paul, (U.R)—President Truman Tuesday called for farm- labor co-operation in the fight to get his "fair deal" legislative program enacted into law. In a message to the AFL's 68th national convention here, Mr. Truman said his welfare program "may be delayed" for a while. But, he added, "in the end it will triumph if we continue to stand together." The president did not specifically say that labor and farm groups should work "together in politics. He put it this way: "M any additional Americans need the protection of adequate minimum wages, of agricultural price supports, of more and better housing, and greater educational opportunities. "They will have their needs satisfied through the co-operation of wage-earners and farmers with their government." Mr. Truman told the AFL delegates he was sorry he could not attend their convention. But he sent his "best wishes" and pledged to continue administration efforts to repeal the Taft-Hartley labor law. Episcopalian Group Studies Pension Plans San Francisco, (U.R)—The Episcopalian house of deputies at the church's 56th general triennial convention Wednesday studied 3 separate plans proposing increased pensions for retired clergy The church pension fund committee recommended that the present $900 pensions for retired clergy be raised to 81,500. The committee also asked that pensions for widows be increased from $450 to $750, and that assessments paid by parishes be hiked from 10 to 15 per cent. A 2nd plan called for pensions of $1,800 for retired clergy and $900 for widows. It also approved the increased rate of assessment, but recommended certain changes in investment practices and an insurance policy of at least $6,000 for each clergyman. Another plan provided for clas sification of pensioners according to their need, distinguishing between married and single retired clergy and clergy widows. A minimum $150 per month pension was recommended. Trade Barriers Being Removed, Hoffman Soys St. Paul, Minn., (U.R)—Economic o-opuratkm Administrator Paul <j. Hoffman disclosed Wednesday :hat Italy, France and Great Britain have lifted trade barriers "as much as 55 per cent" to step up Dirying and selling between the Marshall plan countries. Hoffman told the American Federation of Labor's 68th annual convention here that the relaxation of trade restrictions by the 3 nations "brings the dream of European unity one step nearer realization." He called it "good news, an historic step . . . and a practical move." Hoffman said the action towards freer trade had "brightened the hope of European workers for a higher standard of living because there is an intimate relationship between lower trade barriers and lower prices." And, he added, any action that increases the standard of living for the peoples of Ejurope naturally dees much to combat communism. / Hoffman said the Marshall plan already has done much to help Europe get back on its feet. He said the countries being helped are "working hard" to aid their peoples and increase production. "Take it from me," Hoffman said, "these people are determined to improve their productivity. They are working hard not only to earn their way day by day but also to build for the future."
