Nicholas Is Dark Horse Candidate [This is the third in a series of five articles on Republican and Democratic candidates • seeking the nomination for ; governor of Iowa.] BY ROBERT HOGAN Iowa Dally I'ress Writer Des Moines (IDPA)—The "dark horse" candidate in the current race for tho' Republican nomlna- t\on for governor of Iowa is Lt. Gov. W. H. Nicholas of Mason City. Bill Nicholas, two years ago, completely upset the political applecart when ho ran off with the OOP nomination for -lioutenant- governori That was a three -man contest too; his two supposedly stronger opponents were J. Kendall Lyncs of Plainfleld, and Richard ; V. 1 .00 of Dysart, both veteran • state senators. After tho ballots were counted Nicholas, without any organized isuppport from groups such as the iteaohers association, labor, or the ^Farm Bureau, had tallied 96,296 Ivotes; Lynes 65,684 and Lee 57,038. * • * THIS SURPRISE victory was Ithe result of new campaign tactics Lthat were underestimated for thnlr tyoto value. In tho campaign, Nich- Utlaa wrpto a thank you letter to fesvefy one of 12,006 persons who Feigned nomination papers for him. M?hen he asked his friends to write netters to their friends in support pf bis candidacy for lieutenant-gov- irnor. tThat action snowballed. Tho clo- ^Bt count Indicated that some 221,- pieceq of Nioholas literature Booded the state. iNext he came out against school trjct raorBanlzaMon.

IL NICHOLAS * « • ernor for almost two years. I thinlc I have done a good job in that office and am now asking for a promotion to governor of Iowa." His political background dates back farther than two years, of course. Nicholas served as state representative from Ccrro Gordo county during tho 82nd general assembly. Previous to that ho had been , B county recorder in Butler county from 1916 to 1924. Tn the years between 1924 and 1947 Nicholas was busy becoming a successful turkey raiser and farmer. « * 4> HE NOW HAS turkey farms near Mason City and Clear Lake, owns more than 1;000 acres of land, maintains a home in Mason City and a house on Clear Lake whore ho likes to pursue his favorite hobby—boating. In tho Iowa houso, he advanced a new plan for a school of Instruction for "freshmen" legislators. He organized the "82 club" of freshmen legislators of the house which still meets occasionally. Ho was one of two new members named to tho steering and sifting commtt- tocB. As presiding officer of the senate Nicholaa found himself in an unusual position. One of his severest and out-Bpoken critics was Senator types whom he had defeated in the primary race .for U^utenant-gover- nor nomination. Posstbly in a move to offset the continuing Lynes opposition in the senate, Nicholas atignsd himself with a small group ot fsnators, a move that aroused some, oriticlsm on the grounds that prsaUing officers are 'to remain n«u |m and aloof of such cliques, Vm; WAS DIUOENT and strived <i {or self-itnprovemont in his PBwUlimentarian duties.

The annual exhibit of school art work, which opened Monday In the city hall auditorium and closed this afternoon revealed nn Infinite variety of subject matter, medio. Interpretation and purpose with no rcBtrlctlons os to ogc of the artists. Art Is taught in every grade from kindergarten through Junior high school and there, also Is an adult class. Mrs. Bess BeamoB, art BU- per \Hsor for the school system, explained thn purpose in teaching some of the types of art and also told of tho methods used In producing some of the picture. * * * THE EXHIBIT woB largo, with all grades represented, and attracted many visitors during thn week. Much of tho art work Is linked with studies In other fields of school work. For example, one set of drawings Illustrated Esthorvillo industries which were visited by tho students and drawn from memory or from sketches made during tho tour. Even without tho names of the firms which appeared on some, they wore all recognizable and many showed vivid Imagination. Mrs. Beamos said she was particularly proud of tho accomplishment tho students have made In tho use of perspective. Drawings of rooms t)y 7th and 8th grade pupils show an excellent grasp of the principles of perspective. Tho eighth grade students studied Interior decorating and homo furnishing 1 -efore completing their rooms. * « • OUTDOOR SKETCHTNO result- od in a series of charcoal drawings of public buildings such as the court houso and the Rock Island coal chute. Among the most unusual exhibits Is a group of portraits showing specific facial expressions. ThcBO worn drawn without models but from convorsatlon during which emotional expression was discussed. Geometric designs arc oapocially popular with the young arttats. They love to make patterna and then ,using a double mltror, pl6k out unusal and attractive dcslgna, Mathematlca become art when designs are produced with the uae of compaas and protractor. They v/ere cut from black paper and ox- hii>ttod against a red-covered panel. Christmas scenes showed beauty and originality and were made In several media. « 4> 4> LOWER GRADES were represented with many crayon drawings Illustrating stories they had rood. Several grades produced friezes on which all the children worked, representing outdoor scenes or, as in one case, early American history.

This 25-day old POW camp near Pusan houses 10,400 of them. Unlike the Koje Island prison stockade It has no guard towers. There are no machlnogun positions, no tanks, no sandbags, no flame throwers. The camp Is merely surrounded by a two-foot high' barbed wire fence. Any man in combat boots could walk over It with cose. All prisoners have combat boots. « * <* CA.MP OFFICERS explain the basic philosophy behind the U. N. command approach to the Reds: "These prisoners, former citizens and most of them soldicira under the North Korean Red regime, have said they oppose communism enough, in fact, to die fighting It. Let's show them trust them." Everything has worked fine, camp officers say. Asked what he would do If the prlaonera decided to take over or to leave, Lt. Col. Joseph H. James, Youngstown, O., the comp commander, replied: * * * "I'D JUST STAND hero and hand out candy bars as they went by. There Isn't an^hing clae I could do." Jamea said no prisoner baa escaped. He said four-fiftha of the prlaon­ era belong to the anti-communlat young meo'a league. He credits the organlution with maintaining order. "You Just tell them what you want and they t*ke care of it." non House Members Vote Themselves Tax Relief Continue Study of Fire Needs To St'o Et|iii|Hncnt In Oprration The city i-ounell. tonether Willi the volunteer firemen and Esther villo buslni 'ssmrn. are continuing- their study of new fire flKhtlnK equipment.
