Although a senatorshlp la at etalce approximately 50 less persons filed for all Offices this year than in 1940, definitely manifesting the lack ot interest in state politics. However, some 360 odd persons did tile and will he on the ballot when the June 1 primaries roll around. Here Is the list of candidates for state offices: family workers and 60.000 were hired hands. Ninety-nine, per cent of the total farm workers were over 14 years of age compared to 98 percent for Illinois, Wisconsin and Nebraska, 96 per cent for Minnesota and 95 per cent for South Dakota. Meanwhile. Agricultural Statistician Leslie M. Carl, also reported that Iowa farm wages show a sharp Increase over a year ago, reflecting the decrease In the number of workers available for farm duty.

Francis, Waterloo, Surprise Usually there is an eleventh hour surprise as the dead line for tiling nomination papers approaches, In the form of some candidate enter- Ing the race without benefit of previous announcement. This year, however, the surprise was in reverse. David K. Brown, former Harlan newspaperman and an ex-state superintendent of print- Ing, who had announced for the Republican candidacy for governor, {ailed to file his nomination papers and thus did not qualify to make the race. Brown told reporters that he did not file because he did not have enough signatures supporting his candidacy. He suid that fria'uds who had promised to send in petitions which would qualify him as a candidate had not done BO in time for him to file them with the secretary of slulu. Jio Interest Despite the inr.reuHed activity in the political field there Is believed to be very little interest in the candidates this year. This Is evidenced by the light votes In city elections throughout the slate and is echoed by the various candidates themselves when they find u. mo- to catch their breath between ntops. The people are thinking only of the war and they have no time left |or politics— that seems to express the collective feeling of those ob- ipervers who've had their ears Close to the ground. tion of defense industries for work Republicans— ] era hns forced farm wages up.

Although there hns been nothing public on the phase of it he is studying up to this time, enough hints have been dropped to Indicate that the angle of discrimination will be worked Into whatever charge he may bring against the monopoly. This, undoubtedly, would be based on the company's rescinding of' the vats .lisci'efl?* 1 In. *!v<? Iowa communities along Iowa's borders.

" 'At'c rvcreiat.lqnal facilities adequate? Is leadership satisfactory? Do we have supervised aiyftnniiijr? A.r» Immunization programs working? Is there sufficient health supervision for mothers and children?' " " 'Have day-care facilities been provided for the children of mothers who are working? Are there library facilities for the children? What about park areas for picnics, hiking and camping? Are leisure-Lime and youth agcr<- cies functioning?' " Dr. Hayek added, "The men who are fighting for the welfare and safety of their families want first of all to know they are getting these things at.home.
