Less than a month remains before the June 3 primary rolls around yet there is no evidence yet of any real interest in the campaign. Already some of the better prophets have gone out on a limb and predicted the Republican primary'—which is the primary with the contests—will not attract over 180.000 votes and might not get much over 170.000. A total of 175,116 votes were cast in a three-cornered race for governor at the Republican primary two years ago. stand If they want to see the show. Secretary Lloyd Cunningham reported recently that the free passes had gotten out of hand and many people who were not entitled to them were making use of them. On the other hand, many people who were entitled to them were not getting them, so It was decided to do away with all free tickets. This is following a precedent that has been established in other states. » v' I' CHANCE FOR STEP UP. There is a chance that more votes will be attracted as the month of May wears on. Both Gov. Robert D. Blue and his opponent. Georgedmsted. are warming up to their campaigning now and while nothing like the good old red hot campaigns is in the offing, their many appearances will do something to stir up more interest before the month ends. Still in the imponderable stage is the size of the returned veteran vote that will turn out June 3. In registration cities not,many veterans are registered except those who lived in those cities before going to war. However, it is impossible to tell how many veterans will turn out to vote in smaller communities where registration is not required. My Iowa Stale ColleRc Garden Specialist. May is the time to start planting the iv.'irm-loving vegetables. In de- cidiug when to plant, use common sense. If it should turn cold and wet, wait until the soil becomes warm before planting. Beans and corn are the main vegetables for first plant| inns the first half of May. The tomato 'is the main crop planted in late May. NO CHANGES.

It seems that Ward Barnes, campaign manager for Governor Blue, needed another stenographer at campaign headquarters but could find none. So the problem was on his mind when he attended a church sen-ice in his home town of Eagle Grove one weekend. While there he learned that the woman across the aisle was living in Des Moines while her husband attended Drake University and that she was a stenographer and not working. She got the job. course, is Blue. Olmsted has adopted blue too. but with two other colors- red and white—which may be to emphasize his service in the recent war. WANT PSYCHIATRIST. The state board of control wants a state psychiatrist and has found a 73-year-old psychiatrist who will take the job on a G-months basis for $3,000. g The board has asked the interim 1 committee for the funds with which g to employ a psychiatrist and hopes to g have the answer soon. = This is one of the recommendations s which was made by many people over j s the state after the trouble at the Iowa g Training School for Boys at Eldora g last August. 1 It was also recommended by Gover- § nor Blue. The board was somewhat de- g layed in making the request for funds g until it was determined whether it f§ could legally hire a state psychiatrist J j beans from the pole type as the bush type.

Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, May 12, 1946, Is "Adam and Fallen Man." The golden text is "As in Adam all die, even so In Christ shall all be made alive." (I Corinthians 15:22) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "And God said, Let us make man In our Image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the flsh of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." (Genesis 1:26,27) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "In divine Science, man is the true Image of God, If man was once perfect but has now lost his perfection, then mortals have never beheld in man the reflex image of God. The lost image is no Image. The true likeness cannot be lost in dlv.*.ie reflection. Undertandlng this, Jesus said: 'Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is In heaven is perfect." " (p. 259) DORMITORIES. The state board of education may now proceed with plans to construct dormitories for married G. I. students and their wives at the three state-supported institutions of higher learning in Iowa City. Ames and Cedar Falls. This was revealed last week in a press release from Democratic state headquarters by Chairman Jake S. More who pointed out that the state board had paid $505.46 for an opinion from a private firm of lawyers in Cedar Rapids which resulted in Atty. Gen. John M. Rankin withdrawing an earlier opinion forbidding the schools from constructing the dormitories. More's statement was confirmed by David A. Dancer, Des Moines, secretary to the board of education. The attorney general's earlier opinion was given last August 1, 1945. His letter withdrawing the opinion was dated Feb. 28 of this year. The private firm employed, was Elliott, Shuttleworth and [ngersoll. The board was within its legal rights to hire private counsel.

The state fairgrounds, at long last, is back in the hands of the state after serving as an army air forces depot during the war. The army moved out the last of its equipment just before midnight April 30. Only some guards remain until mid-May when all depots throughout the nation are scheduled to be shut down. Work now begins in earnest to get the grounds ready in time for the centennial fair in August and September, Incidentally, no more Annie Oakleys will be passed out for free admittance to the fairgrounds. Even the fair board members will have to pay their way into the grounds and into the grand- UNUSUAL MESSAGE. g All senators have been besieged g with mail since the house OPA action g and that includes both of Iowa's Sena- ;g tors George A. Wilson and B. B. Hick- g enlooper. ig It was Senator Wilson who got one g of the most unusual bits of cones-' 1 pondence in this regard. It came from j J Newton residents and was in the form ! g of two mammoth post cards, each gj measuring nearly two feet in length ;s nnd a little under a foot in width. !g Each obtained a petition signed by|g the people of the Newton vicinity and | = asked for continuation of the OPA j g without crippling amendments." Postage on each card was 12 cents. JOKE ON MILES. For a time is looked as though Miles had two votes in the bag even before the primary election. It was at Monticello where Miles attended a district convention of the American Legion. Ballotting for district officers was in progress and the clerk was calling the roll. "Miles, two votes," the clerk said. There was no immediate answer but there was quite a stir in the crowd until a delegate from the Miles, Iowa, Legion post arose and cast the post's tsvo votes.
