PAGE TWO. CAPITOL NEWS LETTER (Weekly news release of the Iowa Press Association. Material contained herein docs not necessarily conform to the editorial policy of this newspaper.) Candidates who want to run for state offices have only until March 15 to file their nomination papers with the secretary of state's office. Unless there arc some last minute surprise candidates, the slates of each party primary are fairly well defined at this moment but there is always that chance of eleventh hour surprise. If no more candidates flic on the Democratic ticket there will be no races for state office nominations. However. Republicans are assured of several good races which should stimulate much interest, particularly for the right to head the ticket. It will be a good test. Only three times since the primary election law went into effect has there been no contest for the nomination for governor on the Republican ticket. In cases where the incumbent governor was a Republican and running for re-election, he had always won the nomination for the second time, although there have been some tight races. It developed that the former governor and the judge first met in 1941. And, of course, both attended last year's San Francisco conference on UNO. They also saw each other again in December nt the Cincinnati convention of the American Bar Association. CAMPAIGNING. An interesting sidelight developed in the campaign for the Republican gubernatorial nomination thus far concerns Olmsted, the challenger. In a recent address nt Dcs Moines the candidate said that he had received numerous offers of support from state employes. However, he said, he had asked them not to campaign for him on the taxpayers' time. It is generally accepted in both parties that employes of the state will help out their party in a campaign, either with funds or with work. or. in many cases, with both. Frequently, too. many employes get into the thick of the .primary- tight, if there is one. The new pension plan for state em­ ployes, which went into effect January 1. may eliminate some of this in the future. When employes build up a fund in the system they won't be so dependent on who is elected for their jobs. ATHLETIC GOODS. The state of Iowa has purchased n number of athletic Items which will go to the Iowa Training School for Boys at Eldora. from war surplus materials. Included arc two duck-pin alleys with pins and balls, five table tennis tables with paddles and balls; a large number of tennis rackets, several sets of horseshoes nnd baseball equipment. A new soda fountain purchased at the sale at Fort Des Moines also will go to Eldora. MENTAL TESTS. Sixteen of the training school inmates who were transferred to the men's reformatory at Anamosa last year will undergo mental tests at the University of Iowa psychopathic hospital beginning this week. Two boys are to be taken to Iowa City March 13 and every other clay another pair will be taken until all have undergone examination. REMEMBER NAMES. lowans learned something about former Gov. Harold E. Stassen of Minnesota when he visited Governor Blue's office the other day while in Des Moines to make an address. He can remember names—which is one of the finest assets a politician can claim. This was demonstrated several times but no more vividly than when he walked into Governor Blue's office. Standing at the entrance to the governor's outer reception room door was Chief Justice Frederic M. Miller of the Iowa Supreme Court. "Hello. Judge." said Stassen without any prompting.

MEYER'S Four-County Hatchery Telephone 234 NATIONAL CEMETERY. If a national cemetery is established at Fort Des Moines, and it appears that one will be. it will not be the only military cemetery in this vicinity. Not many people know it. perhaps. but there is n Confederate cemetery on the Mississippi river island on which the Rock Island arsenal is located. During the Civil war the island was used as a military prison and many- soldiers from the south who died in prison were buried there. MALL ELECTED. \V. Earl Hull. Mason City, editor of the Globe-Gazette there, has been elected chairman of thr National Committee for Traffic Safety. He is a member of the state board of education and long has been active in public safety work, having founded the Iowa State Safety council. In IM7 his editorials on safely won him the C. I. T. national editorial award. He became vice president of the National Safety council in 1914. His new job finds him head of a committee comprising 50 national organizations which are dedicating their efforts to reduce postwar traffic accidents throughout the nation. At the present pace, it is estimated American traffic deaths will reach the number of deaths of Americans in World war II in six years. Editor Hall will have a large share of the responsibility for charting the course of an accident prevention pro- gram which President Truman recently called for. EMBARRASSED? A couple of polllicos we know may be a bit red faced over some mistakes made recenlly. One of them, l.ou Gardner, the Republican publicity chief, (Dispelled George Olmsted 's name four times in one of his "Left to Write" columns recently, [.on. who usually doesn't miss on such things, spelled it "Olmstead" every time. And former Gov. Nelson G Krnschcl, in making his Jackson day dinner speech to Democrats, recalled his swan song address to the 'IHUi general assembly in l!i:t!i. He mentioned thai all three of the men who followed him in the governor's chair were members of that assembly—George A. Wilson. It. U. Hiek- eiilooper and Governor Blue. That was not exactly the fact. Governor lllne was a member of that legislature but Wilson was the incoming governor and Ilickenlooper the incoming lieutenant governor. As such they are not members of the legislature. You can save money by reading the bargains offered in today's Herald. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, lay, HOME PASTEURIZATION OF MILK A SAFEOUARn A. \V. Rudnlck, Iowa Slate College dairyman, says Increased interest u being given home pasteurization 0 j milk as it health protection measure. Even though most herds have been tested for tuberculosis and Bangs dls. case, pasteurization of milk in be used at home is still good health insurance. Hudnick says. And the job is not as difficult as many people believe There are two ways to pasteuria milk nt home. One is to put the mm, in a double boiler or heat over n slow lire until it reaches the boiling p 0 | nl Some people object to this method Rudnlck says, because it gives the milk a cooked flavor. An accurate thermometer is needed for the second method. Here the min can be put in the double boiler and heated to cither 165 or MS deurcci Fahrenheit. After the milk reaches 105 degrees it can be cooled. With the lower temperature, it must be held for 'J5 .minutes before cooling. Rudnick points out that it is i ra . portaivt to cool the milk as (juiekly as possible after it is pasteurized. The milk should be down to 50 degrees be., fore it Is put in the refrigerator. ALL ARE SPOKES IN THE WHEEL OF COMMUNITY PROGRESS ! Did you read a recent article written by Gen. William H. Knudsen entitled, "The Next Ten Years?" General Knudsen appeals to the individual to make a pleasure of his job—to love it—to study it—to think of the hours devoted to it as the best of each day. No matter what your work may be—you are a spoke in the wheel of Progress. Whether raising much needed food on our farms, operating a business in town or employed in some capacity in any of the enterprises of this community, you are important to the success of the endeavor to which you are connected and therefore important to the community. As General Knudsen points out, the crying need today is for men who love their jobs. To make this a better community in which to work and live therefore, let each of us apply ourselves to the job at hand and give it the best wc have. If some of us have been blinded to realities through easy wage and hour conditions that prevailed during war days—if strain and toil or the danger and fatigue of those on the battle fronts has reacted in a manner to cause you to say, "What 's the use of trying," let's remember the war is now over; and it 's now our privilege and duty to make this the best Community in the world in which to live. Building this fine Community into a still better one will give us ample pleasure and reward.
