UP)--Re- /ising Iowa's 1927 code is one of the dvities confronting the forty- fourth general assembly. U. G.

After the session he will compile a new code in accordance with the mandate requiring one to be issued every four years. Passage of code revision bills usually meets little opposition after they are approved by the code committee. Most of the measures ere expected to be presented at Saturday sessions when controversial subjects are avoided due to the absence of members spending the week-end at home, Senator E. JÂ» Wenner of Waterloo is chairman of the senate code revision committee to which all of Whitney's bills have been referred. Sioux Cityan Best Speaker. MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 5.

They forthwith threw the 525.000,000 allowance uto the waste basket. But it by no means ended it with :he senate. It so happens that President Hoo- er is president also,of the American Red Cross. He appoints Chairman Payne, . and be appoints five it the eleven Red Cross directors who joined the chairman in refus- ng the $25,000,000. Thus, according to the disgruntled ienators, when Chairman Payne speaks, it siraply is President Hoover talking. - ' . _ \ - Â« Â· "Â» ' i *I T IS A V N ugly charge to mak"e-- That the Red Cross has refused assistance of which the angry senators declare that millions of people stand in dire need, because the president does not want treasury resources used to assist them. Such, however, is the charge implied by the latest senate ballot, for the appropriation, with only 16 senators out of 96 dissenting. It is a charge aimed, to be sure against the president, but, after all, the president is in politics and (justly or unjustly) must take his chances with political accusations. The Red Cross is supposed not to be in politics (and emphatically ought not to be) but events have taken such a twist that it is. Politics is just that contagious. A * * T HE row is not ended, either. In order' to prolong it indefinitely, all the senate has to do is to refrain from passing one or two of the bills providing money for the government to run on during the ensuing year. Naturally that will force the president to call an extra congressional session, for Uncle Sam cannot get thru a year on no money. Hence, let both houses .stand pat on the $25,000,000 argument and a special session is inevitable. All signs point to one nt present. An extra session might easily bring the Red Cross* case of politics to a well-nigh fata! termination. Articles Are Filed by Fayette Bureau Company DES MOINES, Feb. 5.
