Some Queer Arguments Not Everyone in Favov of Flood Control Action. KRASCHEL ASKS THREE REFORMS I i By CHARLES P. STEWART A S H I N GTON, (CPA) -- The curious argument again is heard lhat disasters l i k e floods have at least one compensatory feature: Work is made for many hands e f f e c t i n g r e pairs. To all economists this reasoning gives an scute pain. Their c o n- tcntion is that a community has accumulaled a certain amount of wealth, only to see it wiped out by flood, lire, earthquake or some oilier catastrophe, is just lhat much poorer. It is as if an individual saved his money until he had a substantial nestoge and then had it "go bad" on him suddenly; he might toil and save again unlil he had as good a nest- egg or a better one than he had before, but he never would consider that he was better off for w h a t he previously had lost. Temporary Stimulation. It is true that sales arc said to have been stimulated temporarily in unafflicted neighborhoods which border on the inundated areas. Naturally. The flooded folk. p ; with their own supplies watcr- | (' logged, have turned to the nearest supplemental sources. These latter perhaps could have scooped in big returns momentarily, had they been greedy. From all accounts, very few merchants tried to profiteer--highly creditable. Even outright looting, from army accounts, seems not to have been bad--and some of the looters probably did not so regard themselves; Ihey were in distress and took what they needed in the emergency. lical "Malefactors." PROPOSES FOUR YEAR TERM FOR STATE OFFICER Committee to Take Up Judiciary Bill Gigantic Task of Flood Rehabilitation Under Way i 1 :* f I* Indeed^ there arc antt^-flood ex- ~j3Grj£--Avbo^. speak-, in more., bitter terms of big interests which, they assert, for selfish reasons oppose measures of genuine flood prevention. These anti-flood folk insist on a system of upland dams. Some want little dams, across rivulets; some want huge reservoirs. In either case they promise the development of a deal of hydroelectric power. It almost necessarily will be public. Power folk do not like that idea. Little dams, in a way, are more t h r e a t e n i n g to them than big ones. Small Dams Potent. Power generated, say, by TVA, OO/CE out along the wires. It is formidable al Ihe Morris dam, but has no such potency at a distance, north, south, cast or wesl. A small local dam. however, can provide- for everything within its territory. And these small local plants can hook up and cover their whole collective territories. The flood controllers I have met are mostly army men. They want to control floods. Some believe in big dams; some in little ones. But I am sure they are all interested in the one desire--to prevent floods. Opposed t" Them. P r i v a t e interests. 1 am convinced, while opposed lo floods, arc not opposed lo thorn i f -It they do not u l t i m a t e l y prejudice private power. I believe t h e private interests involved would rather have floods (or anything) lhan risk having "power" govcrnmentalized. And real flood control means governmentalized power. That is to say, govcrnmentalized power simply would swamp the private kind. Advocates Nonparty Vote for Legislative and County Posts. LEGISLATURE STO11Y PAGE 2 DES MOINES, (/P)--Gov, Nelson G. Kraschel Saturday advocated three drastic reform's which would completely remodel majoi aspects ol Iowa slate and county government. To eliminate partisanship in the legislature and county offices, am to "make t h e adminislrativr branch" of the government mon efficient he proposed: 1. A four year term for all state officers including governor. 2. Nonpartisan election, elimi nating all connection with political parties, of members of the legislature and county officers. 3. Setting the regular legislative sessions one year after a new governor and state administration takes office. Agreed by Students. "I think it is generally agreed by students of state government that the two year term for state offices,.including that of governor, is a mistake," he said of the first suggested reform. "Four years would be much better." Before he launched into a discussion of proposed nonpartisan election of legislators and county officers, Kraschel mentioned briefly several election law changes already introduced in the legislature, and then added: "It those who seek election reforms really want to do something constructive, I am wondering why ty offices." Needs More Time. When he discussed his third proposal, Kraschel said his firs! weeks as governor convinced him that the governor should be in office at least one year before the legislature meets. He set out two reasons why he favored the shift in asscmblj meeting date. First, he said, the incoming governor is confronted immediately w i t h the task of "trying to rebuild" the administration alont, d e f i n i t e lines. Tlic .second reason, the governor said, is t h a t a governor cai better "take part in formulating' a legislative program alter he ha: served "one full year under ex isting laws." In Weekly Broadcast. The governor suggested thi three governmental reforms dur radi stat ing his regular weekly broadcast. He did n o t VI fcl r| i m\.

Although it was indicated h considered the proposals fo some lime, Kraschcl dictated h' iddrcss only a short time foetoi the broadcast started. Slcno; graphers had not finished typing :he script when the broadcast ocgan, and Kraschel's secretary rushed completed sheets to h i m during the address. At the beginning of his nd- dross the governor said some persons had doubted his prediction two weeks ago that partisanship would be minimized during the Federal and State Officials-^ Count Damage Cost in Fabulous Millions. By THE ASSOCIATED I'llESS The gigantic task of rehabilitation--far surpassing even Ihe aftermath of the' San Francisco earthquake and fire in 180U-- forged ahead with quickening pace Salurday through the flood- ravaged Ohio river valley. Federal a n d s t a t e officials counted the cost in fabulous millions. All down the 1,000 mile flood trail, from Pittsburgh to Cairo, 111., "cleanup" legions of WPA workers pushed the mud and muck-fouled debris back to the ver. And slowly, not unlike a crash ictim emerging from shock, a ust army of nearly a million ref- gees began to realize the s tuning individual effects o£ the dis- ster as they found what the river ad done to their homes.

In Washington, D. C., Senator Joseph T. Robinson, m a j o r i t y leader in congress, announced the government would provide money for rehabilitation out of the ?900,000,000 deficiency relief bill.
