Iowa State college at" Ames has co-operated in this study project. Among other fact-finding surveys accomplished by the planning board are the mapping of roads, streams, farmstead locations, etc., in order to provide a base for uniform county and township maps; determining the respective tax burden on homesteads and various other property in order to supply data to facilitate legislative consideration and studies of social trends, relief groups and"gcncral movements of population with an eye to providing data to aid the social security board. Helping in Studies. The college of commerce of the University of Iowa is in both the mapping work and the population studies. Other studies completed by the board in recent months deal with schools, recreations, health . and accidents. Results of this work is to be submitted for departmental action.
