4 Sept. 27, 1949 MM on City Glebe-Gazette, Mason City, I*. I Next Lieutenant-Governor Find Duties Extended May By ROBERT .UOGAN Iowa Daily Press Writer Des Moines, (IDPA) Iowa's next lieutenant-governor, whether he be incumbent Kenneth A. Evans of Emerson or one of a host of others holding aspirations for that elective position, may find that his official state duties will extend beyond that limited period, the legislature is actually in ses- is mounting sentiment Sion. ; There for more official activity on the part of the lieutenant-governor, particularly as a representative of the state on those occasions when the governor himself cannot be present. President Truman's Labor day visit to -Des Moines pointed up this fact once again. Official Greater Although Gov. William Beardsley of' Iowa was capably .represented by Brig. Gen. Charles H, Grahl, the state's adjutant general, in welcoming the president, many ,felt that the lieutenant- governor should have been on hand to extend the official greeting for the people of Iowa. At least 2 members of the 53rd general assembly, while attending the recent State day at the Iowa State fair, voiced opinions that the lieutenant - governor should assume more responsibility and assist in easing the load of the governor, both administratively and as the governor's official representative at various functions. Gov. Beardsley himself feels that perhaps the lieutenant-governor should be called upon more often for official functions. In the case of Lieut-Gov. Evans, however Beardsley is reluctant to call upon him, he says, because of the distance of Evan's home residence from Des Moines. Another factor is that such travel, as in the case of greeting the president, would have to be made at personal ex- pense there being no provision for state expense reimbursement to the lieutenant-governor. The fact that the next lieutenant-governor will draw $4,000 per session, a $2,000 increase, may help alleviate the situation. Under present law the lieutenant-governor maintains an office at the capitol building only during the meetings of the general assembly. He receives the same mileage and expense allowance as a member of the assembly and draws double the compensation of a senator, Acting Governor The powers and duties of the office of governor fall .on the lieutenant - governor, as acting governor, upon the death, impeachment, resignation, removal from office, or other disability of the governor. General Grahl was the 2nd person to greet President Truman when he arrived in Des Moines. Hal Keats, national commander of ArnVets was the first. Grahl extended, in behalf of Governor Beardsley and the people of Iowa, a most hearty welcome to the president. Upon being advised by Grahl that Beardsley was making a Labor day speech in Cedar Rapids, the president smiled, and said. "You tell Governor Beardsley that I understand perfectly, and please extend to the governor my heartiest greetings." Incidentally, it's proper state protocol, for the adjutant general as the governor's military aide, to represent the governor at official functions. General Grahl has been doing the favors on occasion, in behalf of Iowa governor's, since 1932.
