By RADFOIiD E. MOBLEY Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Feb. 17--Passage of the pending- soldiers' bonus bill by congress will give 77,365 Iowa World war veterans the right to borrow up to 50 per cent of the face value of the certificates they now hold, it was learned today at the veterans bureau. These Iowa veterans now hold certificates which have a face value of $71,557,306, it was also declared by bureau officials. This is the value which the certificates will have at their matur- Thus the total amount which may they were issued. In some cases, however, money has already been loaned on the value of the certificates. The total amount thus borrowed by lowans is not known to bureau officials. Thus the total amount which may be borrowed by the state's veterans will be somewhat under one-half of ?71,557,306 or about 535,200,000. It is expected the available cash which the bill would place at the veterans disposal, however, would be in the neighborhood of that sum. Release of such a sum for present expenditure ia held to. promise a considerable alleviation of conditions in Iowa resulting from the current general depression. This is the chief argument, aside from that advanced as to the benefit of the veterans themselves, of supporters of the measure. Foreign War Vets Commander Inspects Iowa Organization SIOUX CITY, Feb. 17. (UP)-Paul c.

Why Delay Iowa Senate Redistricting ?--Hutchins Instructions on This Point Unmistakable, Algona Writer Insists. By C. B. HTJTCHINS, ALGONA. DES MOINES, Feb. 17.--Section 34 of the constitution of the state of Iowa says, "The senate shall be composed of 50 members, to be elected from.the several senatorial districts established by law and at the next session of the general assembly following the taking of the state and national census, they shall be apportioned among the several counties or districts of the state according to the population shown by the last preceding census." The last apportionment of the senatorial districts was made in 1882, 49 years ago. However fair :he apportionment may have been at that time it certainly Is not fair at the present time. Jackson county with a population of 18,481 is a senatorial district, as in Clayton county with a population of 24,539. Blackhawk and Grundy counties constitute a district with a population of 83,279, and Kossuth, Emmet, Palo Alto, Clay and Dickinson, with a population of 80,795, forms one district. Look at these Extreme's. Leaving out the single county districts, having a population of 50,000 or more, the ratio, if it could be apportioned equally would be 42,697 to each district. As the constitution says, "No county shall have more than one senator and no county may ae divided in the apportionment," the next thing to be done is to approximate as nearly as nearly as possible to the ratio. As now apportioned there is one district with less than 20,000 population, "t between 20,000 and 30,000, 15 from 30,000 to 40,000, 11. 40,000 to 50,000, four, 50,000 to 60,000, five, 60,000 to 70,000, two, 70,000 to 80,000, three, 80,000 to 90,000, and two over 90,000. Four plan's for apportionment have been proposed, no two of them alike. The plan which seems to me to be the fairest has 14 between 30,000 and 40,000, 26, between 40,000 and 50,000, three between 50,000 and 60,000, three between 60,000 and 70,000, one between 70,000 and 80,000, one between 80,000 and 90,000 and two over 90,000. It's Become n Habit'. Legislature after legislature has purposely and intentionally failed to carry out the plain provision of the constitution. Apparently for personal reasons on the part of some of the senators, who might or might not be disturbed by a new apportionment. Three of the present senators are said to be concocting a bill to provide for no apportionment at this session. The constitution says it must be done during the first session after a state or U. S. census. Now is the time. If It is not done now it is doubtful if a strict construction of the constitution would permit it to be done until 1937. The senators sponsoring this bill are Blackford of the second district composed of Jefferson and Van Buren counties with a population of 28,884. Kent of the fourth district, Lucas and Wayne counties, population 28,991; Knudson of the thirty- seventh district composed of Hamilton, Hardin and Wright counties, with a population of 64,412. Knudson's district has a population greater by 6,627 than both districts of Blackford and Kent. Someone Might Lose a Jol. I think it will readily be seen why Blackford and Kent might wish to have the district unchanged. Their districts would have to be enlarged, with the possibility that some one else might be selected to fill their places in the next session. Can it be possible that self interest is governing the action of these senators rather than that other parts of the state should be accorded their just share of representation? I cannot see why Mr. Knudson should wish to defer the apportionment, as every plan proposed reduces the numbers in his district a trifle over two-thirds of what It now in. The plea for deferring apportionment is that there are more mportant matters to be attended to and that such action should be be- gun in the senate. I take issue on both of these points. What Is More Important? What is more important than that the fundamental law of the state be obeyed, and that our legislators should respect their oaths of office ? Any one of the 108 members of the house has just as good a right to introduce a bill for reapportionment as any senator or any number of senators. From past experience, it is mighty certain that no move for a change will ever be made by any senator representing districts like Blackford's and Kent's. The average population of the 11 largest districts, outside of the single county districts is 63,774. The average population of the 11 smallest districts is 29,598. The average population of the largest 20 is 55,673 and of the 17 smallest is 32,080. There are 13 single county districts. Outside the single county districts there are seven districts having greater population than Blackford's and Kent's Combined, and four others lacking only a little, the most leas than 5,000, the last only 50. . Is it not strange that legislators of this day and generation fof""per- sonal or political reasons 'will take and keep such an advantage as part of the districts have had over other districts for more than 30 years. I ask, "What do the oaths of office of our legislators amount to?" Dougherty Creamery Elects Avery Head at Annual Session DOUGHERTY, Feb. IT.--The seventeenth annual meeting of the Dougherty Co-Operative Creamery company, was held at the hall Saturday afternoon. The following of- "icers were re-elected: J. W. Avery, president; M. J.
