Probably a good many people didn't know that the state bad only 2 more years to go on Dec. 28, to reach its 100th birthday. Plans which were made several years ago to observe the 100th birthday with a centennial celebration, now seem, to be far away, with the war still going full force and no one caring to predict when it will be over definitely. . The legislature will welcome 56 new members who did not serve during 1943 'in the branch to which they have been elected to serve in 1945. Some of these men did serve as representatives and have been moved over to the senate by the populace, but others are serving their first terms. In at least one case, -that of O. N. Hultman, Stanton, an experienced legislator of the past in the house is returning, but this time to the senate, after being inactive on the-legislative front lor a few years. Of the 108 members of the house of representatives, 42 are new members. Of the 50 in the senate, ^14 will be new. v SPEAKER: First order of business in the house will be the election, of a speaker and organization of that body to get down to work on what appears to be a rather strenuous session. Actually, the speaker will be selected at a republican caucus probably the Saturday .before the session gets underway. That is because of the republicans' overwhelming majority of 91 to 17. Thus, whomever the republicans decided upon for speaker among themselves, is bound to be named when the session opens. At this writing, it appears that Rep. Harold Felton, Indianola grain and feed manufacturer, who was re-elected to a 3rd term in the November election, has the inside track on the speakership. Felton, a former member of the Iowa board of control, fias been laying the groundwork carefully and it will be surprising if he is not elected. Rep. A. H. Avery, Spencer, insurance man, will be after the lob again. He will be serving his sixth session and has been speaker pro tern. Rep. Albert Steinberg, Ames attorney, is another who is known to be alter the job. He served as , the- GOP floor leader in the 1943 session--his thirdAand is seeking advancement. '·. Still another who may make a trial run is Rep. Harry E. .\7eicb- man, Newhall farmer,.who has served four sessions. He is a receptive if not an active candidate for the speakership. Rep. G. T. Kuester, Griswold farmer, was a favorite along with Felton until his announcement late last year he would not be a candidate for the post. SENATE: Republicans will also organize the senate because of their 45 to 5 majority--the same as last session. , The organization job isn't as interesting here, because the people elect the man who will preside over the upper chamber--that man being Lt. Gov.-EIect K. A. Evans, Emerson farm orerat.or, who has just completed his" second term in the senate. -However, it is necessary for the senate to name a president pro tern and to name other officers as well as to delegate the assignments on the desk which are highly important in any session GOVERNOR BALLOTS: .After state; that will provide for district reorganization when approved by he people affected; that will re- ieve the property tax burden, now the main source of school revenue; that will provide ample state aid, for this purpose; that will promote teacher security in every legitimate manner; that will ·emove the conflicts, incongrui- ies, and inconsistencies that naturally follow the building of a school code by any process of accretion over a term of years; that will provide for educational leadership through the offices of both the state superintendent for the state and county superintendent SHOWGIRL --Rita' Hay worth, screen actress, poses felchlngly in the costume she wears in the role of a showgirl in a London theater during the first blitz.

Of course the outcome of these races already is known, but the vote a: announced so far has been unof ficial. ; Once' this is done,,the newly elected chief executive, Robert D Blue, will be notified formally o his election and will make his inaugural address. Before he does however, the outgoing governor Bourke B. Hickenlooper, makes bis "swan song" address. Then everyone is ready io ee down to business. But before this goes too far It will be up to the speaker of the house and the president of the senate to name the committees which will serve dor- ins the session for the consideration of bills which are to be brought before the respective bodies. Then the ^w making function of the government goes into high gear with any member eligible to throw into the hopper any bill he wishes. Because both the senate and house republicans appointed efficiency committees, this proposal of bill consideration will get underway rapidly once the bodies are ready to receive them. In past years, it often was several weeks before the 2 legislative chambers got down to cases but now many bills have been prepared and, are awaiting only the opening of the session for introduction. / LENGTH: No one knows what the length of the session will be but -it generally runs in the vicinity of 100 days. One thing Is certain--100 days is all the legislators can draw pay for under the law so it is seldom they remain in session longer than that. They do often wind up their affairs earlier and that has been the case with the last 2 sessions. T h e "efficiency" committees were operative then and are generally credited with speeding. up the sessions to the extent that they could complete their work early CHIEF C L E R K : Undoubtedly chief clerk of the Iowa house will again be A. C. Gustafson "Gus" has served in this capacity for 18 sessions .and -ail told he has been associated with Iowa legislatures for some 38 years. Probably no one knows more about proper parliamentary procedure and house routine than does "Gus" who can rattle off a detailed explanation of anything you ever would want to know about the lower chamber. His work in the house has been continuous except for one session when the democrats were in control and organized it. He served as executive secretary for the late Gov. George W. Clark. DEVOTES STUDY TO SCHOOL CODE "State Superintendent Advocates Revisions Des Moines--The welfare of the chUdren of Iowa is at stake in the revision of Iowa school laws. That is the opinion of Miss Jessie M. Parker, superintendent of public instruction. The entire staff of the state department, said Miss Parker in a prepared statement, has advocated major revisions in the Iowa school code for several years and will continue to support them. Among the problems needing particular attention, according to Miss Parker, are provisions for better-trained teachers, equality of educational opportunity, district reorganization, state aid, teacher security, and leadership in state and county administration by people specially trained in the public school field. Miss Parker was chairman of trie school code commission whose report was made to the 1943 legislature in the form of a bill for the recodification of Iowa school laws. The complete text of her statement released Thursday is as follows: "The department oi public instruction without exception is in favor of legislation which will aelp to insure better trained teachers in service; that will build up and strengthen the office of the county superintendent of schools enabling that office to give more efficient service to the children and youth of the county; that will tend to equalize educational opportunity throughout the entire for the county; that will leave such leadership in the hands of those who are trained in the public school field in order that,public school problems may be dealt with from the public school point of view. "This program has been advocated by this department and its entire staff for several years past. It is now and will continue to be so advocated by the department and we earnestly solicit the wholehearted support and co-operation of each and all who have the best interests of the public schools and the children of the state under consideration." Louisianan Lauded for Cattle Efforts Welsh, La., (U.PX-A. R. McBurney, one of the most successful rice growers and livestock farmers in Jefferson Davis parish, is largely responsible for the development in cattle raising in that section, according io Fred J. Hurst, director of information of the Farm Credit Administration. One of the outstanding contributions McBurney has made is the'-promotion of a weekly auction Marine Dicatcium Phosphate White Liniment 150 Wafers With Viosterol.

Another outstanding contribution McBurney has made to the livestock industry is the distribution of about 100 purebred Angus bulls every year. The 'value of this service is apparent in the hundreds of herds of grade Angus cattle which may be seen in this area of southwest Louisiana. McBurney asserts that small farmers are becoming conscious of the need of growing better cattle and some of them are buying good bulls. Sheepherder's Pipe Starts Prairie Fire Gillette, Wyo,, (U.PJ--A prairie fire which recently burned over several acres was blamed on a sheepherder putting his pipe in his coat.
