EXPRESS FIRM IN FATS DRIVE To Make Deliveries to Rendering Plants A 2 point'program to stimulate rural used fat collections was announced by war food administration in co-operation with Railway Express agency. War lood administration, in assuming complete responsibility for the fat salvage program, has put the full weight of its extension service nnd its county agents behind the drive, instructing them to work with meat dealers and Tenderers in straightening out collection problems. To facilitate the work of war ood administration, Railway Ex- ress agency has issued a stefe- ment instructing its 23,000,local Bents throughout the country to ick up used fats from meat deal- and deliver them to Tenderers This plan becomes operative at al ural points, with special erapha- Hiekenlooper Urges Term of Governor, Other Officials Be Lehgthened. to 4 Years * SHASTA POWER FOR WAR PLANTS--This new picture of the Shasta dam in northern California shows it complete except for the 3 drum gates and the bridge above them.

Oldham, Charles City; Cortland George Dorenkamp, son of Nellie Barkema, Garner.. the term of governor and other state officials from 2 to 4 years was recommended Tuesday by U. S. Sen. B. B. Hiekenlooper, who resigned last week as governor, in* his message to the 51st general assembly. At the same time, he suKgested that the $7,500 annual salary of the chief executive lie increased to a level "at least equal to that paid to any state employe," and that Iowa provide and maintain an official residence for its governor. The total weight of ration tokens, handled by the Railway Express Agency up to Nov. 1, 1944, was some 2,500,000 pounds, or 1,200 tons, forming more than 14,-' 000 individual bulk shipments and requiring the use of 20,000 trucks and hampers. You've Always Wanted a Fur Coat.... This-Year You ; Need One More Than in JANUARY, YOU IN OUR GREAT Ever.... (Seven other persons on the state payroll receive larger salaries than the governor, ranging up to the $12,000 paid annually to the presidents of Iowa university and Iowa State college.) The salaries of state officials are neither .adequate or commensurate with the responsibilities they are required to assume," Hiekenlooper asserted. In urging establishment of the residence, the former governor said: "Such a step is bound to be embarrassing to any incumbenl governor, but the matter shoulc be considered from the standpoint of the. pride and dignity of the ho completes his sentence with- ut violation. The senator also urged estab- shment of a board to review life ases and grant commutations-IB board to be composed of the card of parole, governor and wardens of the men's reformatory nd penitentiary. Creation of a more comprehen- ive aeronautic department and a regressive air code also was sug- HERE and THERE ested.. Concerning public health, he aid he was convinced that effi- ie-ncy and public health would be Better served by abolishing the ,GDO township boards of health . Chester--Mrs. Elmer Speer was taken to Mercy hospital in Cresco by ambulance Saturday and underwent an emergency major operation.

Concerning lengthening t h e term of executive and administrative offices," Hickenlooper de dared that the disadvantages o a 2-ycar term far outnumber the advantages in the public interest A 4-year period, he said, woulc give greater time "for the uninterrupted carrying out of administration policies and pro grams." "I am sure that the experienci of other states who have adoptee similar provisions will justit: such a move," the senator added He asked the legislature to giv serious consideration to the con struction of a complete new men tal hospital that could be re equipped as a receiving an classifying hospital and offer ade quate scientific treatment to thos not permanently deranged. Hickenlooper suggested t h a such an institution, with com pletely modern and scientific in stallations, could be built at littl greater cost than the cost of addi tions to the older buildings a existing hospitals. The condition of the state sound, he told the legislators, c plaining that the total amount no needed immediately for currcn uses approximates S30.00fl.0no an that an additional 82,500,00 woulfl revert to the general fun next June 30. "A great portion of this money is not to be relied upon as annual income," Hickenlooper' cautioned. It is more on the nature of accumulated savings." Care should be exercised that any program of appropriation that will require annual support be financed from reliable and predetermined future revenues." Two recommendations w e r e made by the former governor concerning Iowa's projected state office building: That the increased cost of construction might mean funds now appropriated would not be sufficient to construct the building as planned, and that inquiry should be made to learn whether the structure as planned would be large enough to meet the needs of a few years hence. He recommended "thorough study" of the school code report and "the enactment of such legislation, there recommended, as may, in your judgment, be constructive nnd progressive." He said the postwar rehabilitation commission report "merits careful study and should be given great weight." A f u r t h e r recommendation called for permanent establish snent of the Iowa industrial and defense commission, which wil expire June 30, "to stimulate th future development of the vas resources and attractive condi tions of Io\va," Hickenlooper requested exten sive revision of parole laws t provide the authority granting th parole also could grant a final dis charge, and for the issuance ot a automatic discharge to a parolo convened. HIGH COURT FREES WILSON Reverses Ruling in Manslaughter Case Des Moines. (IP)--The state supreme court Tuesday reversed one of its previous rulings and freed Ciarence Wilson, 45, of Oskaloosa, who had been sentenced to 8 years on a charge of manslaughter growing out of the drinking bout slaying of Harry Bolden, Oskaloosa Negro, on June 15, 1942. Clarence is the second of three Wilson brothers freed by the courts after being convicted in the Bolden killing. In November, 1943, the high court reversed the first degree murder conviction of Glenn Wilson, 39, who had been sentenced to life. He was retried at Washington, Iowa, and found innocent last Dec. 7. The third brother, Albert, is serving an 8- year term in the state penitentiary on a manslaughter conviction. He has an. appeal before the high court. Clarence has been out on bond and at present is a patient in a veterans' hospital in Cleveland, Dhio, supreme court records show. Last April 4 the high court af- rzned the conviction of Clarence, olding that his indictment had een proper even though no worn- n were included on the grand ury list, and that other proced- res in his case had been legal. In reversing that opinion Tuesday, the high court held, among )ther things, that the indictment vas not effective because no vomen were on the grand jury list. Kunz left Sunday for Milwaukee where both are entering Sncrec Heart sanitarium for .severa" weeks' rest and vacation. Ionia--Gerald Huffman of the navy left for San Francisco, Cal. after a 30 day leave with his mother, Mrs. Fannie Huffman, also with relatives at Charles City anc Waterloo.

Kensett--Mr. and Mrs. Levi Med ;aarden returned to their home ii is on those areas Dot now serv- ced by regular Tenderer pick-ups. It is believed there is an addi- ,ional 3 to 5 million pounds ot used at monthly in rural and small .own markets. A recent survey in the middle west placed rural fat salvage at approximately one- fifth of a pound a month per occupied dwelling. United States army and navy, on the other hand, are saving fat at a rate of more than 4 pounds a man a year, or almost 7 times as much as the rural survey figures. "Because war and home front need for used fat has skyrocketed recently, it is hoped that the 3,037 county seats in United States will become headquarters for a new intensified fat salvage drive," pointed out a spokesman for the American Fat Salvage committee. "Fat salvage .can no longer be regarded as a volunteer service. It is a serious wartime obligation that must not be neglected until every Jap is driven back to Tokyo, and the south Pacific islands again become exporters of commercial fats and oils," he said. The first recorded abdication of a sovereign was Sylla, the Roman dictator, in 79 B. C. CHECK THE INDEX It also ruled that "although the evidence was sufficient to sus- ain a conviction of manslaughter, admission of hearsay testimony of statements made by Glenn Wilson, vhom Clarence Wilson was alleged o have aided in the killing, constituted reversible error."
