2 Sept. 22, 1949 Mason Citjr Globe-Gazette, Mason City, la. Gabrielson in Address at Sioux Rapids Sioux Rapids, (/P)—National republican Chairman Guy G. Gabrielson visited his boyhood home in Sioux Rapids Wednesday and made a speech in which he said: "A steady journey down a middle road is one of the foundation stones of liberty." Gabrielson, enroute to a mid- western G. O. P. farm conference at Sioux City, beginning Friday, topped off a day of activities in Iowa with a scheduled address at a local celebration arranged for him. The address was broadcast over the Mutual Broadcasting system (8:45 to 9:00 p. m. CST). Before he spoke at the local gathering, Gabrielson visited Sioux Rapids high school from which he was graduated and the cemetery where his parents are buried. Iowa Ser.ator Bourke B. Hickenlooper and other state party leaders accompanied the Gabriel- sons in light' planes Wednesday to Storm Lake, Iowa and a caravan of cars took the group to Sioux Rapids. Postpone Giveaway Ban Indefinitely Washington, {/P)—T h e federal communications commission Wednesday postponed indefinitely enforcement of its ban on radio prize programs. The action was in compliance with court orders. The ban .originally was set to be effective Oct. 1, but federal judges in Chicago and New York have ordered the FCC not to try to enforce it until the courts can pass on legality of the ban. Major networks have brought suits challengirg the right of the FCC to forbid the "give away shows. Put Gag Rule in Effect for Tax Employes Des Moines, (/P) — An order which would permit censorship of alL news given out by employes of the tax commission has been issued by the commission. Commission Chairman Warren Wells said the order is not intended as a censorship order but to assure that adequate and correct information be given out on all matters. One reason for the order, he said, was a conflict of statements on the question of whether valuation protests in the polk county valuation controversy were a public record. Although Wells and other members of the commission said the purpose was to avoid irresponsible statements, the rules make the commission the judge of information from the commission offices on numerous important tax functions. The tax commission employs more than 500 persons who would be unable to give out any news information . not formally approved in written form by the commission. The subjects which might be covered include sales, use, state income, cigarette, beer, and inheritance tax collections and the valuation of utilities and other properties for tax purposes. These are major sources of general state revenue. Mrs. Morgenthau Dies in New York New York, (fP) —Mrs. Henry Morgenthau; wife of the former secretary of the treasury, died Wednesday.* She had been ill for a long period.

Phone 1507 Reds Reject Appeal on Greek War New York, (/P)—Russia rejected Wednesday a conciliatory appeal from Secretary of State Dean Acheson to co-operate in the United Nations for settlement of the Greek-Balkan and Korean conflicts. But the Soviets lost their fight to throw those issues out of the U. N. It was Russia's first defeat in the 4th U. N. assembly. Acheson repeatedly urged the Russians to help the U. N. end the east-west cold war, particularly in the Balkans and in Korea. He spoke at a full session of the 59-nation general assembly just before noon. Three hours later the soviet answer came. It was delivered in the 14-nation steering committee of the assembly when fiery Andrei Y. Vishinsky, soviet foreign minister, abruptly demanded the assembly throw out the Greek and Korean issues. Vishinsky was not present when Acheson spoke in the forenoon, but the Russian delegation was represented. The committee defeated Russia on the Greek case, 11 to 2. Poland alone -voted with Russia. The assembly president, Carlos P. Romulo, of the Philippines, abstained. Next the steering committee favored putting the Korean case before the full assembly. The vote was 12 to 2. This time Romulo voted with the majority and Poland, as usual, supported Russia. The steering committee can only recommend items to the general assembly but its decision seldom is overturned. Acheson warned the U. N. Wednesday efforts to end the east- west difficulty will require "time and patience and hard work." Nosh Announces Price Reduction Detroit, (/P)—N ash Motors Thursday announced price reductions ranging from $73 to $140 The reductions apply to the company's new 1950 model cars which go on display in dealer showrooms Friday.

Larson said Thursday that he had turned down an offer from a Sioux City lawyer to investigate* alleged gambling and liquor violations at Sioux City. The attorney general disclosed that Attorney Fred Free, who has pushed demands for an investigation at Sioux City, had volunteered to serve as a special state investigator. Free served as a special investigator for the state at Sioux City in 1936. At that time, he collected a fee under an abbreviated name, Fred Herman. Free's middle name is Herman. Larson said that he has learned that Sioux City is "cleaner now than it has been in 30 years." He said that Free was offered a chance to present his charges before a Woodbury county grand jury.

CIDPA)- are -Iowa's getting This state, in other words, is following the national pattern of calling upon yo*uth more and more to handle the school bus transportation system. A new peak will be reached this all when almost. 600 drivers of !owa school busses will be high school youths of 16 to 18 years. They will represent about one- ifth the total number of drivers. The youthful drivers are not just 'any" high school students but are ads who are carefully selected for he job, are schooled in proper driving technique, and pass a physical examination. Direct Supervision They, like the adult school bu,s operators, are under the direct supervision of the school boards and .he Iowa department of public instruction. In fact, they can't drive unless they have a bus driver's permit issued by the department of public instruction and have Dassed a medical fitness examina- ion. A chauffeurs' license issued by the Iowa highway patrol is also a requisite. Further, drivers are subject to routine driving inspections and will soon b£ on a regular schedule consisting of driver training and instruction by highway patrolmen and other safety officials. The trend toward youth results from several factors. It is more economical to the school system, the student drivers are more readily available for driver training clinics, adults are not always available in small communities for part-time driving jobs, and discipline is less of a problem among youthful drivers. National safety experts point out, too, that youths are potentially better drivers because they are more alert and react more quickly under actual driving conditions. The National Safety council points out that the record of youthful school bus drivers throughout the nation is "above average." This contrasts with the dismal accident record of other youths of the nation who have really been banging pop's car up after school hours. Safety officials say that proper selection, physical examinations, and regular driving clinics, have helped the ycuth- Lager beer derives its name from the manner of ageing . . . and special care in ageing contributes importantly to the distinctive character of Old Style Lager.

This 90 per cent has accounted for less than 60 per cent of the total bus crashes, while the remaining 10 per cent of adult drivers were involved in 40 per cent of school bus mishaps, including all the major collisions. In Iowa, the department of public instruction's school transportation system has no record of a youthful driver being involved in a major bus mishap. Up to this year no school bus driver records have been maintained. Iowa statistics show, however, that 15 adult school bus drivers died or collapsed while operating their vehicles last year on school routes. School boards are paying student drivers §25 to $50 a month, and adult operators $40 to $125, with the adult average at about $65. Land values declined in most sections of the country, with the U. S. index 2 per cent below March and one per cent below a year ago. Values continued firm to slightly higher in Illinois, New York, Iowa, New Jersey, Minnesota, Delaware and Maryland. A majority of the mid-western states showed an increase in dollar value of farm land between July, 1948, and July, 1949. Values were up 4 per cent in Missouri, 3 per cent in the Dakotas, Minnesota, and Iowa and 2 per cent, in Nebraska and Illinois. The sharpest drop, 5 per cent, was noted in Michigan. Values were down 3 per cent in Wisconsin and Indiana, 2 per cent in Ohio and one per cent in Kansas. As compared with the 1935-39 pre-war period, values were up in all the mid-western states, with Indiana's being 149 per cent above the average of those years.

NEWS Presented By HAROLD MOTORS End of Line One tremendous advantage in many school districts, officials declare, is that by employing youths who live "at the end of the line" the students • using buses don't have to ride the whole circuitous route before reaching classes. Student drivers have enabled school boards to cut many miles off normal routes thus providing a more direct drive to school. Also buses aren't operated empty in return trips. Department of public instruction spokesmen point out that the state is not trying to force the older driver out of the school bus system but is chiefly interested in a program that will assure greater safety for students at the most reasonable cost. It is within the discretion of the local school tooard to determine who is to drive its buses, subject, of course, to a man's meeting necessary qualifications. Iowa school buses travel about 3 million miles a year. The average route is 17.2 miles; the longest is 45, the shortest 5.
