A couple of da.vs later riovernur Biar- dsley declared there were less than HOO employes in all divisions ol the department. Evans countered, at luncheon addiess, by pointinR out that "the ^.'ov rrnor had dropped moii- than 100 employes from Ih' payroll over nij;li(." Commissioner re.arl .McMurry this week said tliai there were 491 emplo.ves on the department payroll and that employment figure, he said, has held i)retl\ steady for many weeks.

This figure included all temporary employes including many who drew less than .$100 tor the year. It : Iso included many duplication.s In of resign; tions and hiring; of new employe; to till vacancies. For instance, the salary list includ cd the names of two eommlssionera, Alfred Kahl who had resigned, and .Mc.Muny who had been appointed to succeed him. W. H. Nicholas, present lieutenant-governor, who owa Dully I'ress ^^•rit<'^ alonn with Evans is apposing the renomination of Beardsley. made his fiist majoi campaign speech at Waukon the other night. He advocated a road bond issui' to r.iise .?500.000.obo to put Iowa primary roads in tiptop shape "iniinediately." Nichokis estimated the work i ould be accomplished in fnui to five years. Hr .S RhX'O.MKND.ATlON on the road bond i!!sue ha.s brought reaction.-? from both his opponents. The governor said he opposes .such a measure becaute :t means increa.ied t.-uxes for lowans. He favois i pay-as-we-go road financing program. Evans last weekend said that the road bond issus will "only result in more ta.xea for already ovei-tas- ed lowans." He declared that in order to lotire .i .$500,000,000 bom', issue "it will take an eight-mill property ta.x. tin additional five cents per galUii gasoline lax or Iwo-and-a-half times as much motor vi'hicli' tax as we have today."

Loveless oftiMi has to point out that his name i-. not "Loveland." the fellow who ran for the U. S. senate on the Democratic ticket two years ago. Nicholas, on the other hand, has to correct those who continually refer to him as "Nichols" * • I'Hir.NDS or LKO EI.T1ION, Fertile, one of tar" thiee (;oi' c and'dates for lieutenant-governoi, are pointing uji. in a letter, the citation the veteran senator received during the last session from the Dcs Moines Press and Radio club. The legislative press corps selected him as the outstanding member of the si-nate. The letter point.i out that he was the "only senator selected lor a citation." The fact i.s true, but to clear the records it should be pointed out that only one senator .and one representative could be select(d under the press corps rules. Bill Lynes, speaker of the house, was aolected along with Elthon as the two outstanding legislators in the last session. SpeakiiiK of Cleanup.s Combining tbo Vindicator and Kepubllcan.

No, says ijou. He benched young Shortstop Jim Plersall and Second Baseman Ted Lopclo yostcrdany after the Boso.x had dropped seven of eight games on the current road trip. The dazzling pair had lifted the Bostonlans into first place by their early season play. Then the .skid came. So Lou switched to his old-timers and the niusclc-men cnmc up with a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tlg- eis and some lust hitting. "I haven't given up on the kid.s but I've got to stay with my old- timers as long as they keep winning," explained Lou, who said he hadn't given any thought to putting on a uniform himself and playing short. * * * "I CHANGED because I thought Plersall and Lepclo were getting down and needed a rest. They weren't hitting. You know, thc.v had been playing continuously since Jan, 20. That's when we started our rookie camp. "This la not a permanent shift. Kellows like Plersall, Lepclo and (Catcher Sammy) White wlU get plenty of chance. We just needed some hits." And ho got 'em from the old- timers—especially Vern Stephens, the 31-year-old veteran of 11 major league seasons who started at shortstop for the first time since 1950. He had been a third baseman since then. * :^ * VEBN BATTEKED a ihrec-run homer, singled, scoied twice and fielded nine chances errorlessly. He helped In two double plays. Billy Goodman moved in from left field to second base and sing- kd twice. Don Lenhirdl took Goodman's outfield and hom­ ered. Third Baseman Johnny Pes ky singled twice after 24 straight hilless trips. And Catcher Del VVIlber—the 33- year-old ca.stoff from the Philadelphia Phillies—drove in a un with Ills single, his second hit in the American league. Only youngster to survive the shakeup was Rightfielder Faye Tin oneberr.y. * • THE SJIAKEUr came after the third place Red Sox had accumulated only seven hits In their three prior games Plersall was batting .255, Lepclo !250 and White .242. Some Boston writers said the switch to Stephens was made so Tiger officials could see how Vern performed at short. Trade rumors have swept both 'clubhouses over the weekend. The Tigers are reported interested in Stephens, Posky or First Baseman Walt Dropo. And the Bo- sox, they say. are Interested in Outfielders Hoot Evers or Johnny Groth of the Tigers. There's only a slim chance of a trade being made, says Lou. And Tiger Manager Red Rolfe sa.vs the same thing. Meanwhile Vern stays at short — if the club keeps winning. ftrooklvn !o Firsl Plac'<' In National NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L. Pet GB Brooklyn 19 7 .731 New York 18 7 .720 1,'.
