Statehouse Highlights DBS MOIN^S, '(/P) --"Senator Frank Byers (R) of Cedar Rapids isn't exactly satisfied with the way the legislature hired a group of men and women as "extra help." Said Byers on the senate floor the other day: "Now j u s t what good is it to have a 'legislative assistant in economics and sociology division of the library' listed here at $4.50 a day? 1 don't believe we need anything l i k e that." CUSTOM Sponsors of the extra help measure, however, told Byers "that's always been the custom. We always have one so senators can avail themselves of his services when Ihcy draft hills." "I'll bet there were very fe\v senators and representatives who had to go to the legislative assistant in economics nnd sociology in the last session," Byers said.

Also on the extra help list are four elevator tenders, two assist- a n t s in research, four pages to the librarian, a "stenographer for the economics division," and an "assistant messenger to the mail car- TRICK. . . .
