TWELVE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 12 1936 CLOSE UP IOWA CORN-HOG BOOKS Evans Committee Makes Way for Soil Conservation Program. DES MOINES, (m--The Iowa corn-hog committee is closing its books on the 1935 corn-hog program as rapidly as possible to make way for the new soil conservation measure. Chairman R. M. Evans, returned from the regional conference in Chicago on the 1936 program, reported Wednesday that transmittal sheets showing final compliance with the 1935 contract have been audited by the state audit section for 95 counties. Final compliance sheets for 41 · counties have been sent to Washington for ultimate administration approval. Evans said he expected auditing, of 1935 Iowa compliance data would be completed in the state office in ahout a month. Must Receive Approval. The state auditing must receive administration approval in Washington before final benefit payments are made on the old contracts. Compliance sheets for the 95 counties, now audited in the state. office, cover an estimatec 110,000 to 120,000 of the 150,000 corn-hog contracts Iowa farmers signed last year. 'Evans reported the AAA has paid lowans 518,047,867.77 in firs payments on the 1935 program. He estimated Iowa farmers still have about $24,000,000 due, including first and second benefit payments Although the supreme court held the old 'AAA unconstitutional, congress appropriated funds with which to pay off the government's contractural obligations under the 1935 program. To Follow Recommendations. Evans expressed a belief th AAA will follow fairly closely the recommendations made at regiona conferences this week and last in drawing up its 1935 soil conservation program. He said the trend in this year's program is toward fitting the program to regional needs. He pointed out in illustration that the cotton program for the southern states may differ from the program for the corn and hog producing centra] states, because of varying production requirements. He estimated roughly that Iowa farmers may expect to receive around 40 to 45 million dollars under tte program. Seek White House Playroom BACKSTAGE IN IOWA POLITICS By GEORGE MILLS. Iowa Daily Press Bureau. As political campaigns begin to warm up, the eyes of all democratic candidates for statewide nominations are turning- towards eastern Iowa, traditional maker and breaker of hopes in democratic primaries. Twice last week was this illustrated. Nels Kraschel, lieutenant governor of Iowa, went on a trip through some of the river counties. And be doesn't even have any opposition thus far in his quest for the democratic nomination for governor. Another candidate, through- a statement made in his 'present official capacity, incurred the wrath of a strong group in an eastern Iowa county. He was visited by a protesting delegation. A few days later, by way of mollification, ah individual from that county was appointed head of one of the state institutions. * c * NEW FACES. "New Faces" will rule young republicans of Iowa shortly, it is whispered in party circles here. District sessions and a state meeting will witness an entire replacement of leadership, according to reports. At least some of the kingpins are said to approve the idea. If this procedure works out, the kings of yesterday will have .completed a journey from the top of the national young republican organization all the way. back to the rank and file. Three months ago or so, the Iowa faction, dominant in the national picture until that time, lost control of the organization in a convention held here. . * * * HELP! HELP! If you are a candidate and if you nave a request in with the state comptroller's office for receipts, expenditures and other data on certain state offices, don't become impatient if your query hasn't been answered. The office is 'way behind now in filling its political ammunition orders. If the figures which finally are furnished are used in the coming general election campaigns to any degree at all, the hottest battles in stats political history are in the offing, comptroller's officials say. * * * WENIG NOT TO RUN Persistent reports · that Frank Wenig of Spencer, state labor commissioner, would be a candidate for railroad commissioner, have been termed "impossible" by Wenig himself. Main reason for the "impossible" response: Wenig would have to give up his years of seniority as a railroad engineer if he landed the job. * * * FLOOD RACE Not all the racing in the Iowa flood situation is that of rushing waters in the choked rivers. There also is plenty' of competition on dry land, too, among those various- While their lather, Gov. Alf M. Landon of Kansas, seeks the republican nomination for the presidency, Nancy Josephine, 3(/j, and John Cobb, 2'/ 2 , probably are thinking of a playroom in the whitte house. This is a recent portrait of the Landon children, taken in Topeka. (Central Press Photo) ly interested in aiding flood victims at this time of the election year. In fact, the question is, not how much water do you have in your cellar but where do you want to report your flood 1 Several days ago, at the governor's request, engineers met and mapped out a campaign of preparedness, should the floods get out of hand. Be it said, however, that meritorious aid was provided when overflowing waters drove families from their homes in southwest Iowa. * * * NELSON PUZZLE Just exactly where State Senator Fred Nelson will end up in the republican picture is puzzling plenty of sixth district observers. The senator had been expected to enter the lists for the secretary of agriculture nomination. * * * Now come reports of Story county groups approaching other so- called "outside" counties concerning Nelson's possible candidacy for congress in the sixth. "Outside" counties are those areas in the sixth district outside of Polk county. Dwight Lewis, mayor of Des Moines, and Frank Halligan, also of Des Moines are in the sixth district candidates thus far for the republican nomination for congress. * .u * $29,000 CASH Reports a few days ago told o£ Jie liquor commission paying another $50,000 into the state general fund to help meet" Iowa's governmental expenses. Actually, all the commission real- y put on the barrelhead was $29,000. The other $21,000 was deducted ;or losses suffered when the Water- oo liquor store was destroyed by 'ire. The commission was refused the ight to carry fire insurance by the ast legislature. Thus, when the loss i-as incurred, a claim for $21,000 was filed with the state under the aw requiring the executive council :o pay such losses. And that's how t happened that the $50,000 ante was knocked down to $29,000. * * * CANNON LOADED They're whispering around Des Moines that the real guns of the coming campaign will be heard for the first time this week. And the irst broadside, so they say, is to come from Mayor "Buck" Manning of Ottumwa, opponent of Senator ,. J. Dickinson in the G. O. P. senatorial primaries Cost of Trucks Removing Snow Is Less Than Teams NEW HAMPTON--The city of New Hampton saved $225 during the winter this year by hiring truckers to haul snow instead of having teamsters hauling it as had been the custom. During the winter of 1934-35 the city spent more than $800 in removing snow. This season, 1935-36 only $575 was spent in this manner. Schoolmen's Week Planned. MINNEAPOLIS, UP--The twenty-third annual Schoolmen's Week, hold under auspices of the College of Education, University of Minnesota, will be held on the university campus April 6-8.
