WEDNESDAY, MAT 15, 1948. THE POSTVILLE. HERALD. POSTVILLE. IOWA. PAGE THREE. 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.) The committee dealing with the problem of Iowa's postwar tax struc- Hire is about to begin writing its report for submission to the governor and the next legislature. The committee, headed by Francis Johnson, Terril, former president of ihc Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, is now awaiting a report from the Brook- infis Institution to serve as a guide for Ihc final report. When the Brookings report is received—and it is expected soon—the committee will go to work nt once and hopes to have its report ready by September. Others on the committee include Arthur Johnson, Clnrinda; H. J. Schmitz, Eldora; Clyde McFarlin, Montezuma: L. P. Boudrenux, Cedar Rapids; Senator Frank C. Bycrs, Cedar Rapids; Senator Robert Keir, Spencer; Senator Fred Cromwell, Burlington; Rep. Arch W. McFarlone, Waterloo; Rep. Harry Cox, Fort Dodge, and Rep. A. G. Redman, Sac City. 4. A definite and well-rounded recreational program. 5. Social guidance of the inmate to instill in him the right kind of thinking and attitude toward society. 6. Some definite method of aftercare and guidance for the inmate upon his discharge from the reformatory. Carlson pointed out that it will be necessary to obtain the funds, stulT and materials before the program can be put Into effect. This probably means that it will await the pleasure of the 1947 legislature. JUVENILE SURVEY COMMITTEE. Another committee which is preparing to make its report is the civilian committee which surveyed the correctional institutions in Iowa, and is still surveying them. This committee will await some aid from some expert penologists who will make their report separately to be considered by the committee in making the final report. Judge F. H. Cooney, Carroll, heads the committee. Others serving on it include: Mrs. Grace Gilbert King, West Union; Mrs. P. M. Longshore, Woodward; Mrs. Mae Lynch, Pocahontas; Clarence Johnston, Ottumwa, and Richard F. Mitchell, Fort Dodge. GOVERNOR MATERIAL. On a number of occasions since the primary deadline for filing nomination papers passed, Gov. Robert D. Blue and George Olmsted, the opposing candidates for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, have appeared before the same group at the same meeting. Last week at Davenport members of the Iowa State Junior Chamber of Commerce had the opportunity of seeing and hearing all the candidates, including Frank Miles, the Democratic candidate, — but not on the same program. Governor Blue, Olmsted and Miles each appeared before the convention. DEMOCRATS CHARGE S5. Iowa Democrats have had their annual Jackson day dinner at $25-a-plate for several years now, an offshoot of the national dinner and an out and out fund-raising atfair. Up in Linn county recently the revived Young Democrats put the plan to test and announced a $5-a-plate din nor honoring Joseph Mekota, Cedar Rapids attorney, for 62 years of service to the party, 30 of them as chairman. The organization cleared $500 for the county campaign coffers in what of' fleers said would be an annual affair. SIX RECOMMENDATIONS. The Iowa board of control has made six recommendations for a change in the operation of the state men's reformatory at Anamosa, according to an announcement by Board Member E. W. Carlsen. He explained that the changes were designed to transform the reformatory from a "junior prison" to an institution of reformation and rehabilitation. The recommendations: 1. Diagnosis, classification and evaluation of the inmate upon entrance to determine his capabilities, tendencies, interests and potentialities. This would be performed through a study of the individual by skilled personnel. 2. Training of inmates for to which he is best adapted. 3. Broaden and increase facilities for elementary education. DOUBLE HOUSING PROBLEM. Iowa's new superintendent of banking, N. P. Black of Perry, has a double housing problem on his hands.

Ropes, Onawa. has been confined to a hospital bed during a part of the campaign because of two heart attacks. They are Republicans. John Hamilton Cruiekshank, Sioux City, who is opposing Treasurer John M. Grimes. Osceola, for the treasury nomination on the Republican ticket, has limited his campaign to running classified ads stating he is against the fourth term — nobody knows what fourth term since Grimes is running only for his second full term. Neither Grimes nor Ropes is doing much campaigning. Nor is Atty. Gen. John M. Rankin who is running for rcnomination against L. W. Laughlin, Mount Ayr. Laughlin has put out the first issue of a little newspaper he calls "The Constitution," which expounds his ideas on government. They are running on the Republican ticket. There has been little campaigning for the two commerce commission spots on the Republican ticket. The incumbents, David B. Long. Des Moines, and B. M. Richardson, Cedar Rapids, have opposition in Lloyd R. Smith, Forest City, and Warren MacHenry, Des Moines.
