The health department has been occupying the residence for a good many years. Only one governor ever lived in it. The residence is across Grand Avenue from the statehouse and faces north. The house, of course, is old- fashioned but in comparatively good condition. COMMUNITY PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF POSTVILLE Rev. Eldon Seamans, Pastor. With the primary over, the big job in Republican ranks Is to patch up any troubles that arose out of the campaign that preceded the election. Democrats have no such problem since there were no contests in the primary. But wherever there arc contests, in either party, there always are some sore spots after a primary. Dur ing the summer months before the fall campaign begins the party will do everything in its power to heal these wounds so that a united front can be presented at the polls in November. The Iowa Republican congressmen, strangely silent throughout the campaign, told reporters in Washington that they were concerned about the possible split in the G. O. P. in Iowa over the governorship race. In a story sent from Washington, one of them said he thought the an ticipated split would be the greatest within Republican ranks in recent years. Whether his fears will be well founded or not remains to be seen but it is doubtful that they will come true. The dominant party in Iowa, the Re publicans long have recognized that to split uijures the chance of con tinuing as the* dominant party and have manged to patch up any troubles before a fall election.

Frank Miles., the Democratic candidate for governor, is one of the most widely known men in Iowa. But he isuiot known by everyone as he himself will admit. He tells a joke on himself that happened during a primary campaign trip. He pulled into a filling station at Es- thervllle for some gasoline. He engaged in conversation with a couple of World War II veterans who. during tlie meeting, professed to be supporters of Frank Miles. "I'm Frank Miles," he said, ing his hand. "Aw now listen." said the uncon vlnced ex-G. I's. So Frank had to show them his registration card.

A VOTE CHANGE. Miles, the Democratic candidate for governor, is getting a bit of kidding from some of his Republican friends those days because his first conversion job was at home. Mrs. Miles has long been registered as a Republican although Miles himself has boon a Democrat since his college days. Hut Frank assures the kidders that his wife is joining the Democratic fold this year to be able to cast her ballot for him. He also hopes to pick up the vote of his father-in-law, A. H. Baker, Centerville, a life-long Republican. IT'S WEED KILLING TIME! USE The late rains have brought a strata of iron ore to light on the Carl Baltz UNITED BRETHREN CHURCHES. J. B. Haddock. Pastor. m.

Iowa Training School for Boys at Eldora, is still having his troubles. He has confirmed reports that a boy was handcuffed, his hands outside a grillwork of cell, to prevent him from destroying property and to cool his temper. An outspoken individual. Cooper declared he was not going to be mixed into politics and then proceeded to outline to reporters some of his needs at the institution. As of last week one of these needs was for competent help to replace two night men and two cottage couples who either are leaving of their own accord or were dismissed. One couple is leaving to accept a better position in the same kind of work at the St. Charles. 111., institution. The pay there will be $270 a month. The couple will pay $60 a month for maintenance and work eight hours a day. five days a week. The Iowa job they are leaving pays $185 a month plus maintenance. The work is 16 hours a day and only two days in 18 are free. That is one problem facing the state. Another is the • clothing problem Most of the clothing at Eldora has been handed down for the last seven years. It is ragged where it can no longer be patched. Cooper contends that such clothing does not lend itself to increase the morale; that good clothing would do that. That is another problem. The legislature anticipates dealing with these and other problems in the 1947 session. ANOTHER PARTY ON TICKET. The Probihition party will have a list of candidates on the ballot this fall in the Iowa general election, according to their state chairman. L. E. Gifford, Des Moines. Nominees are E. P.

The party also selected a candidate for the United States senate although there "is no senate seat at stake in this election in Iowa. When asked why. Gifford said. "I don't know how we happened to do that." The heat of a lightning bolt turns the moisture of the wood cells to steam, exploding the wood. Lightning sometimes completely girdles the tree.

The wind increased to a gale, tearing part of the tin roof off Will Thoma's brick building on South Lawler street and snapping trees as though they were pipe stems. CAMPAIGN STORY. One of the better campaign stories to come out of the primary was that told often by Lloyd R. Smith. Forest City, a candidate for one of the commerce commission nominations on the Republican ticket. Smith usually wound up his talks by saying that he once gave a speech which was later described as being "moving, soothing and satisfactory." "It was moving." he continued, "because half of the audience left. It was soothing because the other half went to sleep. And it must have been satisfactory because I was never asked back to speak again." AN EXPERIENCE. One of Gov. Robert D. Blue's most harrowing experiences during the campaign was at Emmetsburg. The governor had retired in his hotel room and was fast asleep when the telephone rang at 3:45 in the morning. A fellow who said he was speaking from the lobby asked the governor to come right down and discuss some issues with him. The governor promised to meet him later in the morning if he would reveal his identity. "After all," the chief executive observed, "a governor is entitled to a little sleep." FIRST CANDIDATE. As this is written the results of the primary are not known. But it is said that if one candidate for the legislature, Charles J. Seizor, is nominated on the Republican ticket for the house of representatives, he will be the first candidate for state office ever nominated from the Amana colonies. A young man, Selzer has been principal of the Amana schools for the last 10 years. He also has been coach. He is the first man from Amana ever to seek a state office. Until the Amana society was incorporated a few years ago such a candidacy was forbidden for its members.
