PAGE TWO. THE POSTVILLE HERALD. POSTVILLE, IOWA. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY CAPITOL NEWS LETTER (Weekly news release of the Iowa Press Association. Material contained herein does not necessarily conform to the editorial policy of this newspaper.) While the actual recommendations and much of the report by the special legislative mental hospital survey committee received widespread publicity when released recently, there was one portion which did not. mainly because it was not readily accessible to reporters. This was because it was in the form of a maze of figures which are difficult to disest and because there was only one copy of the figures. However, reporters have now had more time to go over these figures and they find that the committee reported 10 Iowa counties are responsible for 59 percent of the patient overload in the state's mental hospitals, although these counties have a total of 510 vacant beds in their county homes. This was supplementary to the report which was signed by the four legislators but not by Dr. Samuel \V. Hamilton. Washington. D. C. mental advisor. United States Public Health service. Dr. Hamilton is not in agreement with the committee on its recommendation that the custodial cases be transferred from the state hospitals to the county homes. He also is in favor of a law allowing voluntary admissions to mental hospitals while the committee recommended holding up legislation on such a law until the overcrowded conditions at the hospitals are relieved. Dr.Hamiltun's recommendations were largely the same as those which he made as a member of a similar committee which reported to Gov. Nelson G. Kraschel in 1938. Practically none of the suggestions advanced in 1938 were adopted but it is hoped by many legislators that this Will not be the ease when the 1917 legislature meets. that the worker must have lost his job through no fault of his own. It also specifically states that in event there is a work stoppage the workers cannot qualify for payments. GOVERNOR HITS INSTITUTIONS. In the first meeting of the citizens group which will investigate the state's corrective institutions. Gov. Robert D. Blue struck out at the "haphazard" manner in which our state institutions have been operated. His statement gave some support to the oft-expressed belief that the board of control system may be outmoded and may be legislated out of existence by the next legislature. The governor told the citizens group that he felt it was best qualified to get to the bottom of the insitutional problem. He ordered the committee to bring in a true report of what it finds. He specified that there should be no whitewashing. The governor also called the committee's attention to several letters of complaint that had been written about the institution to past governors and which apparently had gone neglected. The board of control now has two persons who are busy investigating complaints. MORE CANDIDATES. More candidates are appearing on the political scene, with less than two months remaining in which to flic nomination papers for state office. Lt. Gov. Kenneth A. Evans. Emerson, has announced for re-election on the Republican ticket, as have Secretary of State Wayne M. Ropes. Atty: Gen. John M. Rankin, and Secretary of Agriculture Harry D. Linn. Earl G. Miller. Des Moines, a former Republican secretary of state, will also be,a candidate for the Republican nomination as secretary, while L. A. Laughlin, Mt. Ayr. will be a candidate for the Republican nomination as attorney general. As this is written there hove been no announcements for state office by the Democrats, except for the legislature.

Commenting further. Judge GafTnev said: "Our first duty is to help the human beings in Iowa—boys and girts, and the unfortunate men and women in our institutions. I think that the people of the state will awaken to the situation and do what's right but we must keep awake. Our leaders have got to keep awake. If they are only officers for one term, let them at least be a good officer for that term." position opens up again in ! 1948.

Vernon A Kroginan, Lena Wm & Emma Krogman, William FARMERS PAY MOST. .Iowa farmers paid 34.8 percent or S2,?45,427.40 of the $6,462,120.59 individual income tax collected from lowans in 1945, the state tax commission reports. The farmers paid more tax than any other occupational group in the state. Skilled laborers made the second largest contribution to the 1945 personal net income tax and were the second largest group in numbers to make payments. Farmers were also first in numbers. Although farmers paid more than other occupational groups, urban residents paid $2 out of every 53. The tax, which was paid at the rate of 50 percent of the tax before the war, brought in slightly more money than the old 100 percent rate, reflecting the prosperity within the state and the fact that many people are now embraced in the income tax brackets. BIRD FEEDING UNDER WAY. VETS BUY BUILDING. That Iowa veterans of America's •wars will receive good service when they have problems, was indicated last week when the Iowa district of the Veterans Administration purchased the Valley bank building in Des Moines lor $602,000. The Iowa office will occupy the entire building except the first floor which will be retained by the Valley •Bank and Trust company. Approximately 750 employes are now located in Des Moines and the number is expected to be increased to J.000 soon. „ ' Among other officers which will have to find other quarters in Des Moines are the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation and the Iowa department of banking, both located in the building. STRIKERS AND RELIEF With a good many workers out on strike in Iowa counties whore there are packinghouses, the question has come before county supervisors i,n those counties whether these workers can get relief if It is needed. In some counties supervisors already have informed delegations that relief is doled out on the basis of need and not on the basis, of why it is needed. Strikers cannot qualify for payments under the Iowa employment security law, however, since this law prescribes Heavy snows over most of the state arc handicapping game birds in many areas, particularly bobwhite quail, and thousands of emergency winter feeding stations have been set up and are in operation. Game technicians be lieve that there is one of the heaviest quail populations in modern times, and winter feeding will aid in carrying portions of that population into the spring breeding period. Winter is the critical period for game populations, and this is particularly true of the bobwhite. Research has shown that the natural quail carrying capacity of any range is limited. Where more birds are present than there is room for, the excess winter kill or in a weakened condition are taken by predators by spring. Carrying capacity of quail ranges many times may be increased by the winter feeding. In addition to 'quail, squirrels in areas where there was a definite nut crop failure may face a winter loss that winter feeding can help to alleviate. The best of all emergency winter feeds is whole corn for squirrels, cracked corn for the quail and pheasants. 140.48 14.72 119.41 32.23 32.21 21.41 26.85 .51 4.74 66.10 19.71 109.15 12.50 Krogman, Emma 11.00 Corn is king among hogs.
