WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 1046. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA. PAGE SEVEN. For the Herald's Ilomcmakcrs by Iowa 8tatc College Home Economists It's Up To Us— TO SHARE OUR FOOD 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.) From nil appearances, the state government is preparing to house many of its scattered departments in down- towli office buildings at high rentals for many months to come. The situation could be changed overnight if building materials and labor were available to construct the new state nlTicc building which was authorized In 1941 and for which the funds are still intact. However, it is not likely that the building will be started this year, for want of materials and labor, and for "Our children eat every other day" —words from a Yugoslav villageman.

So far, the state insurance commission, in the Southern Surety building, and the social welfare board, in the Iowa building, seem to have escaped notice. e SURVEY IN MAKING. After running Into many obstacles In an effort to get under way, the penal and correctional institutions survey committee, headed by Judge F. H. Cooney, Carroll, is ready to begin its task with the help of some widely- studied experts. Lack of funds has kept the committee from starting its study, which was Inspired by the uprising at the Iowa Training School for Boys at Eldora last August. The committee was given $5,000 but found it would be impossible to complete the survey for that amount. Atty. Gen. John M. Rankin ruled that any request for additional funds must come from the board of control to the interim committee. However, the survey committee wanted to make the survey one, whose CENTENNIAL PLANS. A statewide meeting of groups interested in promoting centennial observances throughout Iowa has been culled for April 20 in Dcs Moines and county committees have been named in a good many instances. The meeting is expected to result in an exchange of ideas which can be applied in various communities. The climax observance will occur during the state fair week of August 21 to 30. HIGHWAY C OR 30? The latest rumor on the interstate highway is that the public roads administration In Washington has decid- on No. 6 as the cross-Iowa highway, although the Iowa highway commission recommended that No. 30 be the east- west route. The report is that the administration also will declare Highway 69 and Highway 275 as north-south highways in Iowa. Highway 18 also would be an east-west in the federal network. HIGHWAY PATROL. It won't be surprising if in the near future Chief S. N. Jcspersen of the Iowa highway patrol announces a training school for applicants for patrol position. There have been more than a hundred applications received for positions on the patrol. The present strength of the patrol Is still below the 128 men authorized for the group prior to the last legislature which increased the authorized strength to 100 men. still a better reason—the government does not want to divert any materials objectivity could not be doubted and and labor from the construction of declined to ask the board to make the private homes to ease the housing request, even though the board offered shortage. to do so with no strings attached. Consequently, state departments Now, Judge Cooney's committee has which have been housed in downtown decided to go as far as it can with the office buildings will continue to be $5,000 allotted and hopes that It can get housed downtown but some of them more when the time arrives that it Dr. F.

Because of lack of food, millions of youngsters sulfcring acute malnutrition are at the mercy of these diseases—particularly tuberculosis. In Greece. TB cases have increased four and one-half times. In Yugoslavia, the case rale and death rate from TB have doubled. In Italy, the TB death rate has increased two and one-half times. A tuberculosis expert of Glasgow, Scotland, says unless Europe's children get proper treatment immediately, many will be crippled for life by tuberculosis of bones and joints. We've been asked to share our food with these people — these wrinkled babies, these child scavengers, these begging masses. We're not forced to give up food—it's up to us. Yet there are those among us who say "This doesn't mean me—nobody's going to tell mo what 1 can and can't eat." Nobody's trying to. But how do you feel about the children who eat only every other day, the "old" five- year-olds, the starved who stagger to coffins to die?

As reported here recently, the state tax commission will continue to hold forth in the Des Moines building after agreeing to a substantial increase in its rental. The Harger-Blish building, which has housed the state employment security commission during the war, has been taken over by the state In its entirety and probably will house the United States employment service In addition to the commission. The state liquor warehouse and No. 1 state store, will have to find new quarters within the year. The building owners have given notice that they will not renew the lease. No site has been found for the No. 1 store. It is believed that the warehouse may be moved to the International Harvester building which was purchased by the state during the last legislature, although it is still being occupied by the International Harvester company's branch in Des Moines. This building is located just southwest of the statehouse grounds, and has access to railroad siding so necessary in warehousing. The state banking department must move soon when the Veterans Administration takes over the Valley bank building, recently purchased by the federal government. PICTURE CHANGED. The real estate picture has changed considerably in the last five years, so far as the state's downtown offices are concerned. It wasn't long ago that the state was asked to buy one conveniently located downtown building but it probably couldn't be bought for love nor money today. In some instances where the state's rental has been increased recently, it was reduced through state action not so many years ago. Office space is at a premium now, whereas, when the state decided to build its own office building, it was going begging. The attempt to sell the downtown building to the state was brought about by Des Moines men who sought to prevent the authorization of is needed. COMMITTEES. Speaking of committees, three others are working to get reports in shape for the legislature. These include the postwar tax structure committee, which has ended its public hearings and Is preparing a report on changes necessary in Iowa's present tax structure; the civilian committee to survey correctional institutions, and the state hospital survey committee headed by Dr. Walter L. Bierring, Des Moines, Iowa health commissioner. STATE GUARD. As plans materialize for the resumption of national guard activities in. Iowa, the state guard is planning its final summer encampment, July 7 to August 4th. The state organization will go out of existence when the national guard resumes control of the military situation. The state organization has been si 'icily volunteer with the exception of the administrative officers at the top. Not until several months after the war ended did the attendance at the state guard drill nights begin to slough off. However, state guard company commanders have found it increasingly difficult to keep guardsmen interested and the result is that some companies are now far below their authorized strength. At its peak, the state guard had around 2,300 men and officers. Near ly that many came to the camp periods, beginning in 1942. Some company commanders will be happy if they can bring more than half of their authorized strength to the camp this summer, although every effort is being made to interest young men who will be taken into federal service before many months go by.
