DES MOINES--When, his successor comes to take the office keys from Iowa Curator Edgar R. Harlan April 1, a set or literally human volumes of Iowa history will be broken. Harlan will be replaced on that date by O. E. Klingman of Davenport after 20 years as director of the historical, memorial and art department of Iowa. Whether the other "human volumes" of the department are to continue as employes has not yet been revealed. Douglas Miller, 75, is one of the many "reference works" Harlan has used on the historical department staff down through the years. Miller, a Negro, was born in slavery down in Missouri. On the department payroll he is listed as a janitor. He keeps things in order in the archives division, the World war room and in other parts of. the museum. It's What He Knows. But it's what he knows, not so much what he does now, that has proved of inestimable value to the curator in the latter's ceaseless seurchings of the events of Iowa's past. Miller was the head waiter of Des Moines' two largest hotels for 30 years before, during and after the gay 90's. Speaker J. B. Henderson, Senator Allison, Bob Cousins, many another great name of Iowa history are not schoolbook characters to this janitor. He knew them all, personally and intimately. In fact, when his hotel service days had ended, Senator A. B. Cummins helped get him a job as governor's messenger under Governor Clarke. He continued in that position for 12 years, also serving under Governors Harding and Kendall. Jonas Poweshielc, a fullblooded Mesquakie Indian from Tama, is another janitor whom Harlan literally has asked thousands of Questions in the curator's intensive studies of the redman's culture. Poweshiek, who has dusted and mopped in the historical building for 12 years, is one of four of the Tama Mesquakie tribe with a World war record. So great is the curator's lailh in Poweshieic thai the Indian is left in charge of the priceless museum collection over every week-end. 78 Years Old. Down in the cellar of the building sits. David C. Mott, associate editor of the Iowa Annals, historical publication, and secretary oÂ£ the Pioneer Lawmakers association.-Mott, .who. JS 79 years o'Jd, is the father of Frank'L. Mott, a'i-' rector of the school of journalism at the University of Iowa. An oldtime newspaperman, the Annals editor has been working with Harlan for 18 years. Before that he served nearly nine years as a member of the state board of parole. His record also includes two terms in the general assembly, in 1904 and 19DR. Moll's newspaper experiences include ownership of papers in four Iowa towns between 1B38 and 1907. He operated papers in What Cheer, Tipton, Audubon and Marengo, "It was on the Marengo Republican that Frank learned lo set type when he was 10 years old," Mott recalled. In Charge of Records. Upstairs in the archives is Cassius C. Stiles, who has been in charge of that elaborate division of records since 1908. In fact, Stiles and his assistant, Mrs. Helen R. Wharton, have a virtual monopoly of knowledge on how the department operates since they have been running the division from the time it was organized on its present basis. Stiles, 7G years old, has 13,000,000 documents under his jurisdiction, in addition to 40,000 bound records. Stiles' introductory note to his archives manual con- lains in one sentence his justification for his department. "The history nf a semi-civilized barbarous nation is handed flown from one generation to another in the form of tradition," ho wrote. "We realize how absolutely unreliable the latter method is and t h e . importance of preserving reliable and perfectly authentic history." More than 10,000 requests of certified copies of records are made upon the archives division a year. Birth and death certificates are most commonly sought. Requests come in from all over the United States and Europe, Stiles said. C'ivll War Veteran. Whenever he wants it done, urator Harlan can have the bat- lies of Chickamaugua, Lookout M o u n t a i n and Missionary Ridge fought oil over again. John F. Merriam, 82, and a Civil war veteran, is one of the department's suarcls. The old fishier served the iast two years of the war under ; eiiera) Thomas. He has been associated with Harlan for the last Ifl years, has lived in Iowa since ie was discharged from the army shortly after the Civil war ended. Few persons know the meaning of the word "curator." Life hurries on at too speedy a pace to bother much about those men who try to keep an accurate and complete record of current and )ast events. Generally speaking. :he curator collects the data of Iowa history. He is interested not only in books and public documents--he also collects bits of life like the household effects and papers of Iowa's great mili- ary and political figures, the covered wagon and the plow of the Monecr. every conceivable phase of the life of the Indian, even one t those contraptions called automobiles which forced the lown egislatiye fathers to pass a law prohibiting the operations of s.uch ] ' ' Â· Â· ' Â· Â· Â· , ' . ^ / vehicles at a vale to exceed one mile in six minutes. More Than Double. In Harlaii's term, the size of the historical collection has much more than doubled, according to some estimates. While it is rather futile to place a cash value on much of the material, it has been said the total worth is at least 55,000,000. As curator Harlan is caretaker of the private lives and reputations of Iowa's great men and women of the past. Under his lock and key are the papers of many of the great names of Iowa history. You can see some of these papers--if you agree to his conditions. First, he wants to know why you want to see them. Secondly, if the papers are made available, the curator will require that any article written for publication must be submitted to him before the printer sees it. Such articles are checked with care against the original papers. If Harlan finds any inaccuracies, he insists that corrections be made. As curator he is custodian with a sacred duty, he says, that of protecting the private lives-of great men after death. Romance Not Lost, A streetcar conductor a f t e r some time in service gets tired of collecting nickels nnd dimes and ringing the bell. The romance of selling butter by the pound palls for the grocer, and life becomes routine to most men, whether they remove appendices for a living, argue lawsuits or till the soil. Tens of thousands of historical items have poured in on Harlan since he became curator. Often he has had no place to put highly valuable contributions into the display space they deserve. But not many months ago a visitor called to see the curator. After some difficulty he found the curator standing silently in one of the department rooms. The silence was the silence of awe. Glittering objects filled the table before him.

DUNN SPEAKS ON COURT QUESTION Courts Legislate and Also Hesitate to Change to New Conditions, Claim. Much of the controversy over the supreme court issue is due to two reasons, E. G. Dunn, United States district attorney, staled in an address on the North Iowa Forum over KGLO Monday evening. These reasons, he said, arc.' "First, the tendency ol many oÂ£ our courts to practically legislate on propositions before them and this tendency has grown to such an extent that a large measure of the law is the result not of proper legislative enactment by properly qualified bodies but by limitations placed on the common law by certain of our judiciary. Hesitate to Change. "The second condition that is apparent to any fail-minded citizen is the hesitancy of our courts to change established law on a basis at least of equity to permit the remedying of unbearable conditions." In supreme . . . In support of the first proposition Mr. Dunn slated it look four years of civil war to change the Drcd Scott decision handed down by Justice Taney, making three and a half million human beings chattels. Amended Constitution. "Again it was legislated inlo the law that the legislative body was unable to collect an income tax under our constitution ns it then existed," added Mr. Dunn. "And in" order to reach a great part of the property interests of the nation and subject it to n just portion of the 7iation's burden, we were compelled to amend that constitution. Today no one doubts the absolute necessity of that legislation yet a t ' the time it was proposed it was assailed more bitterly than the court plan is today." What he termed the hesitancy of the courts to meet- changing conditions was illustrated by New Deal developments. Results have proved, Mr. Dunn said, the president look the right course in remedying the economic situalion in the country, and "now the courts have said thai the methods by which he took 10 cent corn and made it worth a dollar, $2 hogs and made them worth $10 are contrary to the constitution and the basic law of the land." R. P. dough was scheduled to appear on the North Iowa Forum at 8:05 o'clock Tuesday evening, also speaking on Ihe court issue. lowan Aw.iils Sentence.
