IOWA GOVERNORS ARE HEALTHY 4 Former Executives of State Still Living By PAUL R. BUMBARGER Iowa Daily Press Writer Des Mohies--Being governor o£ Iowa is a reasonably healthy job. Despite trials, tribulations and overwork through nearly a century of statehood not an Iowa chieE executive has died while in office. This disclosure by State Historian Ora Williams is significant especially in this election year when several good citizens will aspire to move into the executive offices on the first floor of the state capital. It raises a question of h o \v a governor keeps fit. Gov. B. B. Uickenlooper has cothinff as simple as an apple a day formula but he does try to squeeze in 7 hours sleep a night. Attention to official duties has prevented him from indulging much in recreation. He misses his hunting. Scales show that there's nothing like an election campaign or prolongec session of the legislature to gnaw at his weight. He tilts the beam at 165 normally. Ten pounds were lost during the regular general assembly last year. He drops off that much during campaigns. Other testimony to vigor o! governors is offered by 4 living former Iowa executives--Dan W Turner, Corning, merchant - farmer and dean of the group; Clyd( Herring,. Washington, busines: consultant; Nelson G. Kraschel Omaha, general agent for the Federal Land bank, and U. S. Sen George A. Wilson. Governor Hickenlooper, wV|c aspires to be U. S. senator at con elusion of 2 years in office, wil join ranks of 3- lowans who did not seek to serve consecutiv terms at helm of state. They were Samuel J. Kirkwood, gov ernor during 2 separated inter vals;.Frank D. Jackson and Fran cis M. Drake. Iowa's governor, 6th state na tive to hold the office, would be come, if elected, the 7th chief ex ecutive to attain U. S. senai membership. O t h e r s w e r James W. Grimes, Kirkwood John K. Gear, Albert G. Cum mins, Herring and Wilson. There is an historical backdrop too, for Iowa's ^forthcoming bal lot battle of the legislature's pre siding officers. Speaker of the House Henrj "W. Burma, Allison, is a republi can candidate for governor. His tory records names of 3 speaker elected to the highest state of fice. They were George W Clarke, N. E. Kendall and Geai Lt. Gov. Robert D. Blue, Eagl Grove, who seeks .republican gu bernatorial nomination, wants t follow a pattern set by Clarke William L. Harding, John Ham mill and Hickenlooper, all lieu tenant governors who w e r elected governor. Two other lieu tenant governors became low chief executives because of va cancies in office. T h e y wer Warren G a r s t and Joshua G Newbold, who succeeded Cum mins and Kirkwood respective] when they resigned to go to th U. S. senate.
