WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 1046. 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.) An important conference is scheduled in Dcs Moines April 28 when the stale housing committee will confer with Gov. Robert D. Blue for the first time in several weeks. The meeting will be most important because it is known thnt at least two members on the committee are in favor of a special session of the legislature to knock out state building codes in cities of more than 15,000 population and to pass enabling legislation allowing municipalities to use public funds to finance temporary emergency housing. Other members of the committee are known to be against a special session— at least they have been in past meetings. Several state organizations have urged the governor to call a special session and it is known he has given WM. C.

Every person who is without a roof In Iowa will be watching the outcome of the April 26 meeting. CONSERVE THE SOIL. Iowa's Future Farmers of America got a bit of sound counsel from Governor Blue at Cedar Rapids the other night when he told them it was their solemn duty "to preserve the soil so dear to this state." Addressing the final session of their eighteenth annual statewide meeting, Governor Blue said that Iowa Is observing the 100th anniversary of Its statehood and in that span of years Iowa soil in some sections has become so unproductive that it is not paying its way in taxes today. He said that should serve as a warning. SOLDIERS' OVERSEAS BALLOTS. Now is the time for Iowa's sons and daughters still in service overseas to apply for their primary election ballots. Not many auditors have had applications yet and Secretary of State Wayne M. Ropes reports that less than 10 applications have been received at his office. If the ballots are to be sent overseas and returned in time to be counted it is essential that the requests for them be filled shortly. JOSEPH B.

Secretary of Agriculture Harry D. Linn reported last week that approximately half of the milk tested by state inspections of 675 Iowa milk dealers during a 3-months period ended March 1, fell below the federal standards for grade "A" milk. Linn said there "is still room for vast improvement in the quality of Iowa milk," and added that in general producers, distributors and local health authorities throughout the state are cooperative in desiring to raise standards. "Obviously," he said, "some of this milk was hazardous to child health.' ANOTHER IIICKENLOOPER.

Three members of Iowa's congressional delegation have been praised for taking leading roles in the psychological warfare program carried out during the war to undermine enemy strength. The program was a part of that carried on by the Office of War Information. The three congressmen are Rep. Thomas E. Martin, Iowa City; Rep. Charles Uneven. Alton, and Rep. Ben F. Jensen, Exira. Martin was instrumental in convincing the German people by short­ wave broadcast, of our invincibility. Uneven, who speaks Dutch, made recordings for broadcast to the Netherlands and since the war has .heard from Dutch citizens who listened to his messages during the German occupation. Jensen knows the Danish language and encouraged Danish patriot resistance.

Block, Perry, as state superintendent of banking. In addition to Black, there is Governor Blue, and Highway Commissioner Fred R. White, and any number of Browns and Greens. And to add another hue, the administration has had no difficulty staying out of the Red.
