\STRICTLV, BUSINESS LAWS - LAWS - LAWS! '• - '•-•.;-..*.- ,. We well realize that a majority 6f oor state /legislators are sincere, hard*working, conscientious and dedicated individuals. Many of them give up better-paying jobs or employment at home to serve in the legislature. Yet, when these every-other-year legislative sessions begin, you can only wonder how in the world some of the ideas generated into proposed legislation ever were allowed to escape from someone's brain. Every two years we are treated to a series of odd ball, ill-advised, useless, pressure-group, and even crazy proposals for new legislation. Fortunately, many of these never get any farther than to be filed, and die in some committe pigeon hole. But'others, unfortunately, sometimes become laws of the state. ; There is no facet of life that remains free of possible legislative regulation, it would seem. Our own immediate area is fortunate in having two men, Casey Loss, our state representative, and John Brown, our state senator, who do not seem to feel that their main purpose in the legislature is to add to the overwhelming total of bills introduced. For that we can say a small Amen! There is no doubt but what most of those proposing bills are sincere, but after reading summaries of the contents and what they propose to do if enacted into law, we just plain wonder how in the world such proposals ever are presented for public inspection, and worst of all, some of them actually become laws. One thing, though, in another two years they can always be repealed or amended, as is being done now with some of the zanier ones passed two years ago. a v/hole. . * * * ULCERS AND THE WEATHER reports that dieting with bland foods does,not increase the rate of healing of peptic ulcers.' Another experiment made by three United States physicians indicates that .spices formerly on the "never" list for ulcer sufferers, fnayl nb longer all be forbidden. Black and chilli pepper, cloves and mustard seed are still taboo but cinnamon, allspice, mace, thyme, sage paprika and caraway seed cause no bad effects and do not alter the healing time of ulcers. But not all ulcers are alike. Be sure and chetk with your doctor before attempting any dietary experiments of your own. On the alarming side increased attention to the ulcer problem has uncovered many more cases among women and an increase in children as well. The number of women sufferers has spurted an estimated 350 percent in the past two decades. * * * NEW LOOK AT COUNTY ROADS Changes in the "grand strategy" in planning county roads, and in the administration of coun ty road programs have been suggested by a team of Iowa State University researchers, re porting to the Iowa College-Community Research Center. The researchers suggest that not only engineers, but public administration specialists, economists and statisticians might be brought in for a long-range operational research program. This might operate as a part of the State Highway Commission. After studies of the manner in which funds are spent for road programs. Dr. Donald Boles and Dr. Karl Fox made recommendations which they believe would be beneficial to the state as _ . . .

Among'them is the .discovery of a connection between ulcer symp- .torns and the weather; This finding probably only confirms what many ulcer sufferers suspected for some time. Now science has ,- nitely said it is so. In certain cases the disease is likely, to get worse in November and December. Best months are April and August. Investigators. are also re-examining the virtues of the traditional "ulcer diet." The time honored milk-egg-cream routine may not always foe the best treatment.

In advance ' in ed as a reasonable concession to well-qualifiec persons. Noting that certain county boards of supervisors tend to take administrative details into their hands rather than confining their efforts to defining policy, a means of correcting this is mentioned. "Abolition of committee work pay for boards of supervisors," the report says, "along with other reforms in the structure and functions of county government, might give county engineers greater freedom to use their Iowa professional judgement in implementing board policies." In conclusion, Boles and Box find that historically the functions of secondary road construction and maintenance have gradually been centralized and "passed upward" from residents of a particular section to township officials and then to county officials. They advance cautiously the proposition that it is possible this might be extended eventually to the point where the State Highway building and maintenance functions. The report of the two Iowa State University faculty members to the Iowa College-Community Research center is one of a series on county governments and their functions. The present report, entitled "Welfare and Highway Functions of Iowa Counties; A Quantitative Analysis," has been published by the Iowa College-Community Research Center, and is distributed through it.
