They claim they have more fun in bikinis on the floor of their Iowa apartment under strong sun lamps. Besides, they don't get sand between their toes. (And there are more eligible males in Iowa in winter.) * * * As of the New Year's week, I observe that small town big- gies dominated every hotel lobby in DM. This, of course, includes DM's homegrown small- town "biggies & big -town smallies who grew up in Iowa's capital city. And I saw a small town beauty at the Ft.

A hearth-fire beautifies Iowa on a winter night. « * * Mumbo-jumbo from Africa: Iowa banker Harold Brenton reports around Cape Town they call whites "South Africans"; coloreds (some white blood) are called Non-Europeans; blacks are Africans; and White Dutch are "Afrikaners." Maybe the governors of Ala bama & Mississippi ought to put their linguists to work on this problem. An easterner who visited Iowa over the Holidays who knows his way around the White House reports the LBJ circle ranks Iowa's Oov. Hughes at the top politically among the Republic's governors. A good shot at the Presidency when LBJ gets through with it. "They think he looks, talks & acts like a presidential possibility," he says. . . .
