It's bo«innliifi to look as though Iowa? highway patrol will be well manned when normal operations begin once more. Iowa Public Safety Commissioner Fred W'ilkins and Patrol Chief C A. Knee are receiving applications for jobs and many of them are from men who served or are serving with the military police in the army. About 300 applications have been received (or highway patrol positions. Word is out that the report of Senator Herman Knudson's committee surveying mental hospitals may be placed on Gov. Robert D.

The report will be a most interest- ; Undoubtedly the officials will make ins one because the committee has j their announcements one at a time been putting in long hours. It has been digging into corners and it lias been interviewing patients as well as employes. Furthermore, it has been visiting institutions in other states and it has found that Iowa's record of rehabilitating mentally sick persons is one of the worst in the Middlewcst. For instance, the committee discovered that since treatment was modernized in Minnesota. 50 percent of all new patients are being cured and sent home to useful lives. In Wisconsin 60 percent are being sent home and in Illinois. 66 percent are being cured. All of this requires from three weeks to 18 months. In Iowa the percentage of those cured and returned to their homes is so low that nobody wants to mention it. These other states, the committee found, also are curing some of tlv patients who have been in state stitutions for many years and whom hope was abandoned Ion rather than as a group. RENTALS. Did you know that it is costing the state of Iowa S123.000 annually to rent downtown office buildings and space to house the many sub-divisions which long ago overflowed the statehouse? The state is also receiving $8,300 a year in rent for a building which it owns. If that seems rather incongruous, it is because the state purchased a building from the International Harvester company which has not yet moved from it. So the company is paying rent to stay there. NEW OFFICE BUILDING. This rent will stop only when the state finally erects its new office building for which it has salted away about $2,000,000 to be ready when the labor jand materia! are available.

Are you one of the few car owners who is asking for a receipt when you purchase gasoline these days in Iowa'.' You're entitled to a receipt, you know and if the Johnson county district court should rule that the law passed by the last legislature is illegal—and seould be upheld by the supreme court—you would be able to get a refund of one cent per gallon for every gallon of gasoline you have purchased in Iowa since July 4—if you have the receipts. But only those with receipt.') will be able to claim the refund from the state. kidnaped at Denison it marked the first such occurence of that nature in the history of the highway patrol.

Use Water For Keeping Christmas Trees Green A container of water remains the best thing available for keeping Christmas trees green and fresh indoors and reducing the risk of fire, says Richard Campbell, Iowa State College extension forester. Campbell offers this tip in setting up trees this year: Cut off the end of the trunk diagonally—at least 1 inch above the original cut end. Then stand the tree in a container of water, keeping the water level above the cut surface. Add water to the container every day. This keeps the fire risk at a minimum and helps keep the needles from discoloring or falling. An investigation by the Forest Products Laboratory at Madison, Wis., shows this treatment superior to chemical treatments tested. Freshly cut spruce or balsam fir trees standing in water cannot be set on fire by candle or match fires, but, of course, cannot withstand a large source of heat. In addition to the water treatment of the tree, all the usual precautions against fire should be taken. TRUE OR FALSE? A hen never lays part of an egg. True.

It now seems that the Iowa Slate Fairgrounds will revert from the army to the state fair board bit by bit—or. to be more specific—building by building. Latest word is that the army will turn the grounds back in that manner and that it is possible the full possession of the grounds will not again be vested in the fair board until sometime next summer.
