PAGE TWO. THE POSTVILLE HERALD. POSTVILLE, IOWA. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 194t 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.) Unless a non-veteran files nomination papers for governor on either ticket by March 15 —and none is expected to at this writing—Iowa will be assured of a fall campaign pitting two war veterans against each other. Frank Miles, Des Moines, made certain of that last week when ho announced his candidacy for governor on the Democratic ticket. His announcement came as a surprise to most political observers who knew that he had considered making the race several weeks ago but thought he had taken himself out of it in the meantime. Miles is a veteran of World war II He served in the navy during World war I and was public relations director for Iowa selective service from 1940 to 1944 in World war II, resigning to become a war correspondent. He lost a son. 2nd Lt. William B.. in she last war. A pilot. Lt. Miles was killed in action over Elba in May of 1944. Another son. Frank, jr.. served as a captain in the Eighth air force. Both of the announced Republican candidates also are war veterans. Gov. Robert D. Blue. Eagle Grove, is a veteran of World war I. His primary epponent. George Olmsted. Des Moines, is a veteran of World war II. Olmsted also served with the army of occupation in Germany following World war I. PUZZLE SOLVED. With Miles' announcement, the puzzle of who would be the Democratic candidate is solved. Since A. J. Loveland. Janesville. announced he would not run a week ago. there had been much speculation. This reached a climax at the Jackson day dinner in Des Moines. However.

MEYER'S Four-County Hatchery Telephone 234 no name was forthcoming. In fact, former Lt. Gov. John K. Valentine, Ccntervillc, publicly announced he would not be a candidate. So did former Gov. Nelson G. Kraschel. Former Sen. Guy M. Gillette, Cherokee, a scheduled speaker, was detained in the east and took himsert out of the picture by not appearing to expose himself to a draft. So did former Supreme Court Justice R. F. Mitchell. Fort Dodge, who was scheduled to speak but could not appear. State Sen. A. E. Augustine, Oskaloosa, was mentioned along with former State Sen. Lester S. Gillette, Fostoria. So was Sewell E. Allen. Onawa attorney, who came out for lieutenant governor the same day as Miles announced. Another person known to have been asked to consider the race was Horace Van Metre. Waterloo attorney. But no one was thinking of Frank Miles, who for many years has been editor of the Iowa Legionaire. Miles is 55. He will be 56. April 2. Born at Fort Madison, he attended school In Illinois and wasgraduated from Drake University's law college. He served several years as a newspaperman in Des Moines and also did publicity work on a free lance basis. During his period with the Legion organization he estimates he has addressed 5,000 audiences in Iowa personally and 1,000 radio audiences. He is a fiery orator and declared he will conduct a clean race and a hard one. ' Allen, who had intended to run for congress from the Seventh district, will be 33, May 4. He served as Monona county attorney six years and as a member of the house of representatives from Monona county in 1941. Allen served three years in the army during World war II. in Africa, Italy and France. He was discharged as a sergeant. BEST CRACK. The crack that drew the best laugh at the Jackson day dinner was one by former Governor Kraschel. He said the centennial commission appointed by Governor Blue was a fine one but it didn't have any funds. "We're going to a picnic without any lunch." said Ncls. Since then the interim committee has voted to grant the commission an appropriation of S15.000 for postage, office space, clerk hire and miscellaneous items. STAFFERS. Word is out at the statohouso that in the event the trinls of four former Iowa Training School employes are carried on, the state will be represented by someone from the attorney general's staff. Howard Grothe, who prosecuted the first two trials, is n special attorney general assigned to the case. He formerly WHS with the office but left it a few years ago. IN MEMORIAM. In loving memory of our dear son and brother, Sgt. Dwayne Huebner, who was killed in action over England, March 7, 1945, one year ago. Somewhere in England in a soldier's grave. Lies our dear Sonny among the brave. He never shunned his country's call. But gladly gave his life, his all. He little thought when leaving home. He would return no more. That in death so soon would sleep, And leave us here to mourn and weep. We do not know what pain he bore, We did not see him die, We only know Sonny passed away, And could not say Good-Bye. —Sadly missed and never forgotten by his Mom. Dad. Sister and Brother. DOUBLE CELEBRATION. Postville Town Council Holds Monthly Meeting REPUBLICANS. Declaring that "the Republican primaries are wide open, untrammel­ led and free." Lou Gardner, publicity chief for GOP headquarters, said the party has "two excellent candidates" for the gubernatorial nomination. Previously Chairman Willis York had stated publicly that the Republican central committee would take no part, as an organization, in the primary race. The committee met in Des Moines on the same evening that the Democrats were Jackson day dinnering. Young Republicans—five of them representing the executive committee — met with the central committee and presented a 12 -point program outlining the part they hope to play in this fall's campaign. It is also rumored that they asked for more of a voice in the party. Their program was taken under consideration. Monday. February 18. was doubly important in the Joseph Remke home in Ossian.

Postville Rendering Plant FLOYD IJLY, Proprietor SPECIAL SESSION IF NECESSARY. The executive board of the Iowa State Junior Chamber of Commerce adopted a resolution at its recent meeting in Marshalltown commending Governor Blue for calling a conference of Midwest governors to discuss the housing problem. The board also urged the governor to call a special session of the legislature, if necessary, as soon after the conference as possible. However, the resolution stated the board's desire that something come out of the conference to solve the shortage. Farm economists at Iowa State College expect the supplies of butter, cream and cheese to run short of demand for at least the first quarter of 1946. They say that butter is likely to remain short of demand all year. PARDONS. Of the 200 Iowa parolees who served in World war II, only two or three have gone bad. Eighteen have been pardoned and applications for pardons for about six more are pending, including one from a parolee originally sentenced to life for a slaying but whose sentence had been commuted to 50 years. One parolee in the army recently wrote the parole board that it was "good to be on the other side of the fence." He was a military policeman in Japan at that time. HOUSING. Rep. John W. Gwynne, Waterloo, whose district contains the Tama Indian reservation, has been looking into the chances of using a sanitorium on the reservation for housing veterans. The sanitorium buildings have not been in use and it is thought that they might be made into apartments or living quarters for veterans without homes. A WOMAN FOR SENATOR. The Iowa senate may welcome a woman into its ranks when it convenes next January. Mrs. Kathryn Kirketeg, Bedford, has announced her candidacy on the Republican ticket. She is the widow of the late Sen. O. J. Kirketeg who died while the 1945 legislature was in session. If she wins the seat, she will be the second woman ever to occupy a senate seat. The first was Sen. Carolyn C. Pendray, Maquoketa. Mrs. Mae Lynch, Pocahontas, has been a representative from Pocahontas county for the last two sessions.
