"You will not be surprised to learn that in the peculiar exigencies of the times our intercourse with foreign nations has been attended with profound solicitude, chiefly turning upon our own domestic affairs. The disloyal citizens of the United States who have offered the ruin of our country in return for the aid and comfort which they have invoked abroad has received less patronage and encouragement than they probably expected." Those were not the words of President Lyndon B. Johnson Tuesday night.- They were written by Abraham Lincoln on Dec. 3, 1891. But there is a familiar timeliness to them. There is one thing evident in using prime television time at night for state of the union messages. They ore much shorter then they were in the days when there were no special communication hookups. By Don ff*/d Manager Iowa Pien Anoclatlon LEGISLATURE The 62nd General Assembly has convened, as everyone in Iowa must know by now. If the first legislative week Is any Indication of what's to come, it's going to be a mighty Interest- Ing session. As Senator George O'Malley, veteran Polk County legislator noted. It's been 30 years since control of the legislature has been so divided. Republicans control the House 89 to 35, while the Democrats hold a slim edge of 32 to 29 In the Senate. As expected, Maurice Baringer, Oelwein Republican, was elected and Installed as Speaker of the House. Earlier, at a Republican caucus, Barlnger had defeated John Mowry, Marshalltown, tor the post. The official canvass, by a legislative committee, gave Governor Harold Hughes 494,259 votes and William G. Murray, his Republican opponent 394.518, The canvass also showed that Lt. Gov, Robert Fulton was reflected by 1.260 votes. Fulton poU.d 424,9& votes to 423.70. lor State Senator Max Mtlo Mills, A* had been predicted, there were some "printing bugs." The tors h legislative leaders had decided ent re; to twitch to off-set printing lor propos fe.) prtotiM of bills introduced *-- -"' ud fee duly legislative Jour. Tlw first legislative week, rlnters ware late in getting and other muter to lit focus fly Chase McLaughlln Thursday evening I went with Lylc Miller, president of the Humboldt County Farm Bureau, of Humboldt and Virgil Erwin of Kenwlck to Mason City where District 2 of the Farm Bureau was host to the news media of the area. Taylor of Des Molnes, the public policy_ come Iowa Fan matters as he shall deem expedient." Through tradition, this message has become known as the "state of the state message." Governor Harold Hughes, in delivering this message before a Joint session of the legislature, struck an optimistic note. Hughes said he believes the condition of our state "Is one of robust good health and glowing promise for the future." He told the lawmakers that lowans of all walks of life, of all creeds and political faiths, have a right to be proud of the breakthroughs for better government and a better society than have been achieved in the past few years. "The credit for this phenomenal advancement belongs to no individual or group, but w the people of Iowa." he asserted. The governor did. not read all of the message, some 6,000 words. In the message, he covers everything from fiscal matters (the state Is expected to have a surplus In the state treasury in excess of $80 million on June 30) to operation head-start under the economic opportunity program. REACTION Within minutes after Gov. Hughes had delivered his state- oMhe-state message, reporters were busy getting reaction of legislative leaders. Said Senator Robert Rlgler, minority floor leader in the Senate; "The governor has the politician's touch for painting a pretty picture of paradise. Iowa and all states have made real progress for which we are all proud, but we still have real, pressing problems not covered on today's can- vacs. More than the painter's brush will be needed to eliminate them. This is the big task for the 1967 legislature." Glenn head of mlttee of the Iowa Farm Bureau and registered lobbyist of the Farm Bureau at the capltol, reported on the Farm Bureau stand on state ami national Issues. He reported there were 175 lobbyists registered for the current session of the legislature, which is a greater number than there are legislators. Although there is at least a controversy in the legislature as to whether the lobbyists should bo allowed on the floor of the assembly halls, Taylor feels that lobbyists are generally welcomed and accepted by legislators as aiding the legislative process because It is impossible for legislators to be well informed on measures that are submitted for consideration. I am surprised at the Farm Bureau support for a reduction in the, size of the state legislature. With farmers now form- Ing only five percent of the nation's population, a further decrease In the number of legislators will only remove the grass roots farther away from legislative processes. The publisher of the Parkersburg Eclipse brought up the question of county consolidation. He had just paid his taxes and was looking for some form of tax relief through larger county units. His suggestion went over like a lead balloon. This has been under some discussion by Farm Bureau groups but there certainly seems to be no general support for such a county reorganization at this time from that body. There certainly has been advantages to school reorganization-better schools, more quire single-member districts 'In both houses. ' They contend If the 1965 "permanent plan" is adopted without change "this will create a grave danger that single-member districts will not be required In the future." Sen. Stanley explained that the Iowa Supreme Court subdistrictlnR decision is based on the 1965 constitution. The "permanent plan" will change the constitution. Any citizen, Stanley continued, could then go to court and argue that the constitution as amended no longer requires single-member services provided, better tacit- itles-but ft certainly hasn't meant a decrease In school taxes. Eight out of ten lowans depend on agriculture for their livelihood. Iowa farmers produced more than three and a quarter billion worth of crops and livestock annually. They spend over two and a quarter billion for supplies and production expenses each year. Investment In Iowa farms exceeds 16billiondollars- an average of over $100.000 per farm. Every dollar of farm Income creates at least three and a half dollars Income up and down Mam street, In Iowa factories, laboratories, feed mills and grocery stores. The farmer has passed through many trying times. With the world's population Increase and the ever expanding need for food, certainly at some future date the man who owns the land and tills the soil will be in the best economic position of any producer in the world. / PftANCIt TONit twine better thtn is absolutely districts. The two Republican leaders said that there has been a loi of "loose talk" about submitting the 1965 "permanent plan" to the voters In 1967 and making It effective for the 1968 election. They claim this can't be done under the 1965 "permanent plan." (In order to amend Iowa's constitution a proposal must be approved In Identical form by two consecutive general assemblies and then approved by a vote of the people.) Stanley and Rlgler say the plan passed by the 1965 legislature provides for the first redlstrict- ing In 1971. "There Is no provision, expressed or Implied, for any redistrlcting before 1971," they add. SUIT Two prominent Des Molnes trial lawyers, prosecuting the state's charges of price fixing against 22 oil companies, have been discharged from the case by Iowa's new Attorney General Richard Turner. Former Democratic State Chairman Lex Hawkins and Verne Lawyer, associated In practice with Republican State Chairman Robert Ray, had been hired by former Attorney General Lawrence Scallse. Turner is a Republican, Scalise a Democrat. A question developed as to whether Hawkins and Lawyer had been retained by the state since the state executive council had not expressly approved their contract. After a hearing before the executive council in which all three—Turner, Hawkins and Lawyer-made an appearance, Gov. Hughes said thai "in Border to. represent the interest ofthepeo-? pie of Iowa" It might be necessary for him to hire special lawyers in the case. Hughes was citing a little-known law, which hasn't been used in years. Meanwhile the council granted Turner's request for an additional two weeks to study the case before making a decision as to whether "out-side" counsel is needed. ELSEWHERE Mrs. Mary Huncke, Des On a clear frosty morning traffic cresting the grade Just north of the Intersection of highways 3 and 169 glimpses a rather impressive view. white vapor billows from the Agrlco plant and the dark gray buildings form a silhouette against the sky. The vapor sparkles with crystallne brilliance In the frigid air and morning sun. Against this backdrop on the right is Dodgen Industries, Croft's tower, Jet's building, and Sll- fer's plant. On the left is P & M Stone, Hadar Manufacturing, Reasoner's, a home, the Humboldt County R.E.C., Corn Belt Power Cooperative headquarters, then row upon row of grain storage blns-es though to remind one of the agricultural base for it all. The scene is suggestive of the "agri-industrial" economy that is the new Iowa. Three American and one Iowa flae Identify the view as Iowa and all-Amerl- can.

A panel of three federal Judges has ruled that a law passed by the 1965 Iowa legislature Involving imported meat is unconstitutional Robert Erpelding completed army artillery course like the rippling muscle of ft young man bending to the day's work Just begun. A good picture could capture the esthetic merit of the scene better than words. Best of all, see for yourself some clear frosty morning when you are out that way. Stained glass for windows Is an ancient art experiencing modern revival. The methods have changed little in 700 years. An old skill blended with the freedom of expression allowed by present-day designers has made popular for homes, business structures, public buildings, and churches. Glass Is stained by various metallic oxides added to molten glass or applied to the surface before firing. Panes are usually rough and uneven in texture. They are cut to fit the design. They are Joined by strips of lead. Tne windows are usually reinforced by steel rods or bars anchored in the window frame. The largest stained glass window in the world Is three hundred twenty feet long and is a part of the American Airlines terminal at Kennedy Airport In New York. Without denominational overtones, St. Mary's Church in Humboldt is a good local illustration of this time-honored skill as applied to a modern structure. Though used In the side windows also, the ereat west window, the one that forms much of the front of the church seems most impressive. To view this window from inside the church in the afternoon, when strong light is from the west, is to see this window at its best. Refraction of the light through the richly colored glass is — very beautiful. Surely anyone, any afternoon, would be welcome to step Inside the church to see the window under daylight illumination. Most religious services are held In the morning, or in the evening - tending to minimize appreciation of this fine window. (Wcoop! Sorry about that. But, it is true.) A man by the name of Will Cuppy made this discerning observation: "Etio^ette meansbe- 1 IV, Section 12 of ft* ol UM State of low* iflM u OM of the duties *U»f ewcutive ttat "to , by REMAP Twenty-tour Republican senators have tiled a new perman- Dt ^apportionment plan as a .reposed amendment to the Iowa Constitution, in many ways this constitutional amendment Is similar to the so-called "permanent plan" which was approved by the 1965 legislature. ft reduces the site of the legislature to no more than 50 senators and no more Utan 100 representatives, Ssuitors D»vld Stanley, llus* eattiM, and Robert Rif tor, M«v Hampton, told reporters at an early mornlM news coifcrtoct to*! tt* nK*t Importwkt dllter. ta HM two plaiu l< proposal wtkfc wouW r«- Our Safe Deposit Boxes Are Easy To Use Cost So Little, Tool The pennies a week it costs to safeguard your jewtlry-ond important po- ptrs and other valuables, in a safe deposit box at the First National Bank -entitle you to use your box as often as you wish during regular banking hours.

The program needs more support from farm-oriented organizations and their membership. It Is a program planned to avoid collision between today's 70 mile per hour vehicle ana trailers, tractors, combines, plcker- shellers - anything required by its mechanical nature and location to move slowly along highways. Would it be out of line to ask the active support of farm wives to support this program? I hope not, because I do ask their help. Would It be out of line to suggest to the farmer himself a new meaning for S M V? Even If you Ignore personal safety, a brilliant S M V sign can mean "save my vehicle" - and we all know, you best of all, that farm equipment comes high. Remember - you are apt to be driving that vehicle when collision occurs! The vehicle AND the life saved may be your own. It 18 something to think about. 'Bye now. Nice visiting with v you.
