DBS MOINES, (.1?)--Senator L. H. Doran (R) of Boone can't see anything wrong in golf on Sunday; but he does see a lot wrong in divorce. Which explains why Senator Doran during the first week of the forty-seventh general assembly filed a bill which would penalize movie theaters which show pictures in which divorced actors play; another which would in-, crease the penalty for wilful failure o£ a divorced husband to pay support money to his former wife or children and a third which, in effect, would repeal Iowa's Sunday blue laws. The first he doesn't expect to see passed, but he. has hopes for the -other two. · Father of Three. "I'm the father of three children, all less than 18," the senator explained. "I don't think it does a young mind any good to see pictures of movie stars who've been divorced time and again, and 1 believe there are many parents who agree with me." Doran said he introduced the other divorce bill at the suggestion o£ . several judges. It increases the penalty from one to 30 days in jail. His Sunday blue law bill provides that a. $100 fine be assessed against anyone who disturbs Sunday worship. Not a Reformer. . 'But it also repeals various sections of the code, which a study of the code disclosed include laws prohibiting carrying of firearms, dancing, hunting,, shooting, horse racing, buying or selling property, or any labor except of necessity or charity on Sunday. . "I'm no reformer," said the senator, "and everyone knows these prohibitions aren't enforced. If they aren't e n f o r c e d they shouldn't be in the statutes." Burglars Know Coins.

Manila Makes Preparations for Eucharistic Congress Church Edifices Date to* 17th Century; Some Were Rebuilt. MANILA, (UP)--Fire, Chinese uprisings, earthquakes, typhoons, British troops and time have scarred the 18 principal Catholic churches in Manila and vicinity but most of them are being remodeled or repaired in preparation for the thirty-third International Eucharastic congress, Feb. 3-7. Several of these structures were auilt in the seventeenth century and six of them have been des- :royed and rebuilt from two to five :imes. Their history is virtually :he history o£ the Philippines since Magellan's discovery of the islands in 1521. In the vestry of the Church of San Augusfin, which was damaged 'n the British occupation of Manila in 1762, the terms of the American occupation of the city were signed in 1898. In the chapel lie :he bones of Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, the first Spanish governor of the Philippines. The church, the oldest in the Philippines, contains mural decorations done 70 years ago by the Italian painter Alveroni. ^ One Church All Iron The tireless Recollect Fathers brought the all-iron church of San Sebastian in parts from Belgium. Built on a high stone platform, it has 12 European stained glass windows, depicting the life of Christ from the Annunciation to the Resurrection. The Recollect Fathers built their church, the second oldest in the Philippines, in the Bagumbayan district near Manila bay in 1606 Two years later, they built their first church in the old walled city of Manila, where the presen church of the Rccoletos is the thirc on the same site.

When Commodore George pew- ey's fleet was battering Manila in 1898, thousands of Catholics, knel in the Capuchin church and prayed for safety. Catholic history sa'ys of the building: "At the same time when almos all Manila churches were being turned into military quarters, the Capuchin fathers were inaugurating their new church, at the'altar of which stands--a promise" o peace and well-being--the enchanting image of the Virgin o Lourdes." Pay Homage fo Statue Fire which.destroyed the Church of Quiapo about a decade ago, let the life-size Black Christ image unharmed. Each Friday hundreds of devout pay homage to thp slalne, brought from Mexico ,100 years ago, and once each year it is carried through the streets at night, when hundreds fostle for an opportunity to kiss its feet.

In the chapel are inscribed the names of Jesuit fathers who died in the Philippines. In the 200 year old chapel of the Franciscan church, fourth of a series o£ structures which began as a native nina house, is a reclining figure of Christ.
