' * Must Start Later. I Senator Clyde L. Herring, a I o'clock senator in a 12 o'cloc! ~ { town, has had to revise his work ( ing hours. He gained a reputatior | of being "Iowa's hardest work 1 ing governor" by being at his des' j irom early morning until late a \ night in Des Moines. a 'In Washington, where no wheel ' start grinding until long afle ] I what would be morning chore tim -, in Iowa, Herring has been force * to-start work later in the day, ar i ranging his time to allow attend j ance at a senate session at 1 noon. Senator Guy Gillette, more ex j perienced in Washington way , . through his service in the house I J ' hasn't changed his ways of livin ' much since he became a senator J i .' · Find Picnts Higher. | Senator and Mrs. Gillette, wit] * , their son, Mark, 8, chose a hous ' on Military road for their resi 3 dence, while Herring lives in ! suite at the Mayflower hotel. Gil * · ( lelte spends much of his tim i ' away from the office, a consider i ' able part in reading. s , A minor, revolution bresved a I the session's outset among the | Iowa delegation on the rent ques- ^ j tion.. Finding district rents two and three times what they were in ( Iowa, they finally chose apart- 1 \ ments or houses in widely sepa- , / rated parts of the city. , Representative and Mrs. Otlia Wearin finally selected a resi- -t dence in Capital Towers, not far from the capitol. From there the Iowa representative can walk to 1 ^ work in' the morning or stride rl home for a noon day meal when time permits. : Have Selected Houses. Representative · Fred Gilchrist and Vincent Harrington are among the congressmen who chose houses , i for themselves and their families " ' in preference to apartments. At _·} his place overlooking Rock Creek park, Gilchrist can romp with his grandchildren, ages 7 and 11, when official hours permit. - ^Harrington is, one of the delegation's leading devotees of the sea food. At places along the Potomac he is able to indulge an ap- i i petite r he acquired while coaching ''. athletics on the west coast. f Representative William 'Jacob' sen, another of the newcomers, is J one of the most consistent and .;{, regular attendants at house ses- \ sions. Committee work requires t much time from Representatives 5 !l Wearin, Lloyd Thurston and Ed- I' ward C. Eicher, the latter farm ii bloc chairman. ' ' j ··' Biermann Ukcs Iowa Best. J Some of the lowans ' have bei j gun writing weekly letters to the i back home newspapers. Other rely 'i j oh the regular news services to tell ii j the people in their districts whal '''! is going on. - - , · J They're finding the climate I ' , quite different from that of the 'l tall corn state and somewhat ! ^l cheer, when down the row of ad- i'i| joining suites in-the old house of- i fice building where Harrington ,' Fred Biermann, Wearin and Ja- ji ( cobsen ' are quartered, when the ,' eapito! had its first - real snow I i storm last week. ! Biermann is critical of the Washington climate. He wrote back home recently that it is "enervating" and that he found it "much easier to keep healthy in Iowa." He has expressed amazement at the number of Decorah residents he finds everywhere he goes. One even turned-up in the band at a presidential reception he and Mrs. Biermann attended. Many Are Job Seekers. And he has concluded thai nearly two-thirds of the callers a1 his office are job-seekers. But he sees many of them and doesn't blame people for wanting employment. Typical Iowa pictures and decorations gradually are taking their places on the walls of the delegation's offices on capitol hill.
