PAGE TWO. THE POSTV1LLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 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.) Iowa is making preparations to attack the housing problem on u state level. The committee appointed by Gov. Robert D. Blue to study the problem has been organized and R. H. Kenworthy. Des Moines contractor, will chairman it. Kenworthy plans to ask every community in Iowa which docs not already have a housing committee to name one which will cooperate with the state committee in getting information which will be used by the state group. Meanwhile. Governor Blue has invited governors of H middlewestern states to a housing conference in Des Moines in late March. Most of the governors have replied favorably to the invitations while those unable to come have indicated they will send representatives. Tl.e conference would have been scheduled for this month or early in March, according to the governor, if there had been hotel accommodations for the visiting dignitaries. However, no accommodations will be available until late March, which accentuates the very problem the committee is assigned to solve. mental hospital survey committee. Dr. Hamilton said that while Iown made provision to care for its mentally ill before any other state west of the Mississippi—in 1861 at Mount Pleasant— six years after the opening it was overcrowded. Dr. Hamilton made 53 recommendations for the improvement of Iowa's institutions today, including one for a new 1,500-bed hospital to be located near Des Moines. He was opposed to the proposal in the majority report of moving patients from the state hospitats to the county homes in an attempt to relieve overcrowding in the former institutions. SALARIES. The long anticipated salary increase f^r the governor may be in the offing when the 1947 legislature meets. About n dozen state legislatures are meeting this year and in many of them wage increases for the governor are being considered. Iowa's governor gets S7.500 a year, is one of the 14 states which docs not furnish a home for him while he is in office. The medium pay of state governors is $8.000—that is the number who get more than S8.000 is about the ?ame as the number who get less. Connecticut. Illinois. Arizona. Colorado. Massachusetts. Florida. Rhode Island. Georgia. Idaho. Iowa, Oregon, New Hampshire. West Virginia and Vermont are the states which provide no living quarters for their chief executives. Of these. Connecticut. Illinois. Ari- rona, Colorado. Massachusetts, West Virginia. Florida, and Rhode Island pay their governors more than Iowa. New H;>m[-shire and Vermont are the . nly states who do not furnish their governors with living quarters who also pay less salary than Iowa. Georgia and Idaho pay \ho same salary. Highest salaried governor in the United States is New York's. He receives 525,000 a year plus his living 1 'iuartcrs. New Jersey's governor receives S20.000 a year plus the use of a governor's mansion and a separate summer residence at the seashore, plus $15,000 for expenses. Pennsylvania pays its chief $18,000 annually plus a mansion; Nevada, the state which has the lowest population, pays the fourth highest salary of $14,000 and furnishes a mansion. Connecticut. Illinois. Indiana, Texas and Louisiana, each pays its governor , $12,000 while North Carolina's governor works for $10,500. In the $10,000 a year class falls the governors of Arizona. California, Colorado, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio. Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin, while the governor of Florida gets only $9,000 and those of Rhode Island and Wyoming $8,000 each. Along with Iowa, Idaho and Georgia, the following states pay their chief executives $7,500 a year: Delaware, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska. Oregon and South Carolina. Minnesota pays only $7,000 and Oklahoma, $6,500. Alabama. Arkansas, North Dakota, Utah and Washington each pay $6,000 while Kansas, Maine, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico and Vermont pay $5,000 each. Maryland pays $4,500, Tennessee, $4,000 and South Dakota, $3,000. In Iowa Governor Blue receives less salary than about 20 other state em­ ployes including the presidents of the three state institutions of higher education, the football coach at the University of Iowa, and various others, mostly on college faculties. Also, supreme court justices get the same in Iowa as the governor. In Maryland, the situation is much the same. Governor O'Connor receives $3,000 less salary a year than the state auditor and the state director of health. His salary is less than half that of the state superintendent of schools, is $500 less than the warden of the state penitentiary and only $500 more than that of his own secretary. WAR BALLOTS. Iowa's primary election war ballots may be full-sized. Secretary of States Ropes has proposed that they be printed on lighter paper and made full- sized rather than using the midget ballot which was mailed overseas during the 1944 election. THIS WEEK—MAYBE? This may be the week that George Olmstead. Des Moines insurance executive, decides whether or not to run for the Republican nomination for governor. Olmsted, a recently returned brigadier general, is said to be waiting until Feb. 17. when Iowa American Legion post commanders and adjutants will meet, before making up his mind whether he would have sufficient strength to run. There are still those who think that Olmsted has his eyes on the national committeeman's post in 1948. STAMP. Postmaster General Robert Hannegan has assured Rep. Henry O. Talle, Decorah. that the postoffice department will issue a special postage stamp to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the admission of the state into the union. Rep. Talle notified the postmaster general of the appointment by the governor of a centennial committee and suggested that the committee be permitted to submit its ideas for a design for the stamp. The postmaster general said this would be acceptable. OFFICIAL NOTICE BEFORE THE IOWA STATE COMMERCE COMMISSION ANNOUNCED NOW. Back in the days when there was unemployment, resignations from state positions sometimes were not immediately announced. The boss hoped to be able to find a replacement to announce at the same time to save himself from being flooded with applications for the job. ' However, now the picture has changed. When there is a resignation it is announced almost immediately in the hope that there will be at least one applicant for the position. CHAIRMANED CONVENTION. Willis York. Madrid. Iowa's Republican chairman, was general chairman of a conference of Republican chairmen from 12 midwest states at Detroit recently. The conference adoptel a 14-point program which it urged be given consideration by the national committee. National Chairman Herbert Brownell was present. Veterans of Foreign Wars Lease Old Court House Lawrence D.Anderson Post. No. 4117, Veterans of Foreign Wars of Waukon, has rented the old Allamakee county court house for a period of 99 years. Most of the offices in this building have been vacant since the building of the new court house in 1939 and the structure is in need of repair. The Odd Fellows lodge have occupied the court room and the Spanish American war veterans the clerk's office. Under the lease all upkeep is to be borne by the V. F. W. and they may alter the inside of the building to suit their needs, but must keep the outside as nearly the same so as to retain it as a landmark; the county reserving the right to hold any general, primary or special election for the county there. The V. F. W. expect to do considerable repair and make changes so as to make it as a home and meeting place for their members as this organization consisting of veterans who have seen foreign services has been growing rapidly.

Older children often save face by pretending they arc no! impressed by what you say. Little children do not know how to say. "Yes, mother, I think you are right." Jack, ten years old, wrote very messy hnmework papers. His mother talked very seriously with him about it. but Jack held out. "What difference docs it make''" he said. "I gel all the answers right." Nevertheless, his mother noticed considerable improvement after that. Frank, age 13. spent the night with his pal Later, his pal's mother said, "How did y6tt ever manage to teach Frank such nice manners?" Frnnk'i mother could not believe her cars, Ellen had been gtyon some | n . structlons In good manners, hut not too much had been made of it, f or E1 . len was only three. Imagine the surprise of her elder* one dny. when she bumped into Carol, her playmate. "Pardon me," said Ellen. "Surely," sold Carol. No one can say how much the words meant to either child. But they had remembered them better than the par. cnts had hoped for. Example, experience and practice arc the best means of learning. But teaching with words is also useful il we do not talk too much, too loud mi loo long.
