PAGE TWO. CAPITOL NEWS LETTER (Weekly news release of the Iowa Tress Association. Material contained herein does not necessarily conform to the editorial policy of this newspaper.) The next meeting of the Iowa Aeronautics commission, a "get-acquainted*' session scheduled at Atlantic Jan. 31. may turn out to be much more than that, it appeared as the time nearcd. Flyers who have returned from service and who have taken up their civilian work in Southwestern Iowa have given indications that they will he on hand to find out just how much iiuthoriiy the newly formed commission plans to assume. Newspaper articles appearing in the Inst few days have inferred that many of these veterans intend to keep up their flying activities and that they are piqued somewhat thai none of their number was included on the mission. Flyers, generally, are pretty well satisfied with the regulations which the federal Civil Aeronautics administration has Hud down and they feel that the Iowa commission is encroaching on the federal agency's authority by offering different regulations in some instances. This will be the secand of the four >;et-loi;ethers scheduled by the new commission to meet the flyers in the state, as well as airport managers, in an effort to learn from them. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, I LIQUOR CONTROVERSY. It is apparent, even nt this early date, that no matter who is elected to the legislature next fall, the members are going to have to deal again with the liquor problem. A local option bill passed the house at the last session but failed in the senate to even reach the floor. Antiliquor factions are gathering their forces together for another effort to get some favorable legislation. In Des Moines recently the state board of the Iowa Anti-Saloon league adopted a resolution recommending that county and district organizations be formed to support candidates favorable to local option laws in this year's elections. The board also voted to support legislation prohibiting advertising of all alcoholic beverages in Iowa, to stop the sale of liquor on trains, and voted to cooperate In the enforcement of all anti-liquor laws, for a temperance education in the public schools, for a newspaper advertising campaign and to cooperate with the national anti- saloon league in support of federal anti-liquor legislation. VETERAN!!. I Vocational guidance centers span- ( .-ored by the Veterans Administration ' at four Iowa educational institutions— I Iowa State college, the University of j Iowa. Iowa State Teachers college and ; .Morningside college —• have assisted nearly 1.500 veterans in their eduea- ; needs during the last six months . iiecording to V. A. otficials. Additional centers were recently es- ' tablished at Drake University and at Des Moines Technical school. A ; M'Vt-nth center is to be opened at Coe . college i:i Cedar Rapids February 1 ANOTHER VETERAN OUT. Another World War II veteran is out for a congressional nomination. He is Lt. ijg> Richard V. Bernhnrt, 31. of Oelwein. who expects to be out of service in time to make a campaign for the Democratic nomination for congress from the second district. Sewell Allen. Onawa. previously had announced for the same nomination in the Seventh district after finishing his career in service. Bernhart is the first Democrat to announce for the post in the Second but a Young Democrats meeting in Cedar Rapids recently brought forth a statement at least four candidates will be in the field before the deadline falls.

Iowa marriages and divorces were up over 25 percent in 1945 over 1944, the state health department figures show. Marriages in this state totaled 21.604 in 1945 compared to 17.261 in 1944. Divorces were up 8,334 to 6,603. Many counties reported that divorces were up because of veterans returning from service and their wives being un- However, this was not true in some counties where virtually all divorces were of couples not connected with service in any way. WHAT ABOVT FAIRGROUNDS? It appears, once again, that the Iowa rtate fair board isn't going to regain control of the state fairgrounds from the army as soon as it has hoped. Iowa's congressional delegation is at , -- • work attempting to get some word out i able to start out anew, of the army in Washington as to when the grounds will be definitely turned back. L. B. Cunningham, secretary, wired the congressional delegation that all clearance had been signed by the army locally but needed approval from army officials in Washington and that this was not forthcoming, apparently, in the forseeable future. Cunningham pointed out that the grounds must be given back in the immediate future if they are to be prepared in time for Iowa to stage a centennial fair. "First we were told we could start restoration of the buildings in November, then December, then January," he said. "Now we find that the whole matter is tangled up in the bureaus at Washington." So the fair board is still twiddling its thumbs. MORE CANDIDATES. As this is written every one of the Republican state office-holders except Governor Blue has announced for reelection. Miss Jessie Parker, Lake Mills, announced for re-election to the state superintendent of public in struction's office, being the Inst before Governor Blue who is expected to an nouncc momentarily, if he hasn't by the time this reaches print. It seems that A. J. Loveland. state AAA head and Iowa director of the United States Production Marketing administration, will be urged into the candidacy for the Democratic guber natorial nomination if he doesn't an nouncc. Young Democrats of Linn county joined others in asking that Loveland be the candidate. Word has filtered back from Washington that Guy M. Gillette may still be interested in the race and he didn't deny it when he was in Des Moines recently. AN OUTDOOR IOWA MAP TO BE PRINTED SOON The State Conservation Commission has authorized preparation and print ing of an "Iowa Outdoor Map," designed to show the exact locations of the various state recreation areas and outstanding hunting and fishing territories. Twenty thousand copies of the new map have been authorized. In addition to a full page official state highway map, the obverse will have maps with locations of all the state parks and recreational areas explaining exactly the facilities available to each for public use. Also will be shown the location of favorite fishing waters, including the popular northeast Iowa trout streams, location of all public shooting grounds, and a game range map showing the centers of abundance of pheasants, quail, ducks and squirrels. The new map will be ready for distribution in early April. . Farm prices will be at a high level during 1946 but several will fall below wartime levels barring a general inflation. Seasonal price trends will be more pronounced, jPixlcr, Jas & Elizabeth ; Pixlcr. Roy R j Postville St Bank.Trus- I tee . .. 86.20 I Peterson, Melvin 14.41 I I'laht. Edwin 18.90 jPreuss.

Such action had been recommended by Governor James Clarke in his message of December 3. 1845, following the rejection of the Constitution of 1844 and statehood because Congress had deprived Iowa of the Missouri as its western boundary. Clarke felt sure that "the prosperity of Iowa would be greatly advanced by her speedy incorporation into the Union as a state." Confident that a majority of the people desired statehood, the Legislative Assembly passed a bill providing for the election ot delegates to a Constitutional Convention. This bill, which was approved bv Governor Clarke on January 17, 1846, called for the election by the people of thirty-two delegates at the township elections in April. The delegates were directed to meet .. Iowa City on the first Monday ot May 1846, and "proceed to form a Constitution, and State Government for the future State of Iowa." The constitution was to be submitted to the people for ratification or rejection at I the first general election thereafter, ' and it ratified, was then to be submitted to Congress with the request that Iowa be admitted into the union on an equal footing with the original 86.19 14.40 18.89 11.34 177.09 51.54 101.54 25.69 41.85 80.95 114.23 13.57 15.46 1.57 113.89 94.35 322.36 189.70 126.88 99.11 43.68 12.76 10.35 15.64 7.77 7.94 8.74 79.43 76.99 24.04 55.13 201.78 77.31 71.85 126.99 192.19 115.44 83.13 182.98 118.49 54.96 101.76 322.33 13.41 141.81 .10 at 128.14 9.18 11.11 , 90 - 8 8'States! 335.50 $ 75.31 183.58 236.98 6.25 FLYING WOLF HUNT.
