v? • ANOTHER USE, FOR TRACTORS , : Over In ' France, 4,000* Brittany .farmers •.jumped on their factors and rode them, into a nearby town to protest low farm prices. It took 230 regular and special police to maintain order.

I He said "Iowa is a first-rate state held back ;by second-rate government." He .added; that, Ifhere pre many competent and capable men in [state' goverrtm'ent but that they are held back by fobsolete structures arid horse-and-buggy methods. •,[ i : - . ;• ; -, , •• . \ \ He said that each branch of state govern- jment is "a little separate empire-" The state also |has more than 60 boards, bureaus, departments land commissioris, and many overlap and dupljr icate in function. • f What Representative Stanley has to say Is |also probably true of-Federal government. Each ^year, each change of administration, new. units *are created, bjut the ,old -ones are ^seldom dis- jjsolved. The net result'is waste and overlapping Jiof functions. I It sometimes makes one wonder, as we seek (to probe outer space-arid reach new worlds, i why we cannot solve some of the easier, closer-to home problems, which have a much more direct 'bearing on pur own immediate lives. I ••..-'. ; *•-*-.* careened intoj the" students^ near Vinton oh highway 218. . VV'e'are Well-aware that most truck drivers are good driver*. They/are probably 'dbove- average in their safety records as compared with tne casual motorist.. But the development of truck-transportation has ; been such that these'.freight cars on Wheels just cannot operdte on ordinary highways, with ordinary curves, to any degree of complete safety. They are just too big. , '"''., As new« interstate highways increase, and state freeways are developed with .double (one traffic in each direction, the dangers diminish from truck-ciar - mishaps. But ort ,th& ordinary highway that stjll exists, as every driver well knows, wheri you see one of these giants bearing down you hit for the edge ot your side ot the highway, so tfiat the inboard wheels of the'coming truck cari ride right down the center stripe. ' ... Only state laws can govern the size pf trucks and trailers, and the trucking industry keeps a good lobby at work trying to constantly increase the'size and load-limits of trucks'on the highways. /y\aybe someone should lobby- for the plain, old family-car driver, too.

IOWA AND EDUCATION .."., I, :••• „ ' '-• .'>/ .r i Indianojs Tribune — The decision of several top-level faculty members 'to ,|eqve their present positions at some of our state universities has been attribu|ed at least in part to the past session of the Iowa General Assembly. The legislature, you will recall, appropriated the State Board of Regents (the governing bpdy^for our three state collegiate institutions) $41 million,' or J5ome $8 million less than the Regents had requested, for each of the next two years. This was onjy ope of many instances where the legislators took action that would just "gel-by" and keep'thlri'gs in operation by the narrowest of margins for another two years, instead of taking' realistic and forward-looking steps to improve the over Ul E.

Looking back a little less than a year, we remember a lot of noise and alarm being expressed by certain groups across the state against the candidacy of E. J.
