DES MOINES, W--A proposal to grant $8,000,000 of state funds for direct relief during 1937, was laid before the Iowa house o£ representatives Monday. Such money would be paid out as a direct dole. The bill came from Rep. John W. Moore (D) of Sioux City, who explained that he introduced it "by request." Another relief measure for taxpayers added to the house docket Monday would permit the payment o£ delinquent taxes in 10 equal installments. This would apply to property bid in by counties but not assigned. Plan County Boards. The Moore direct relief measure would set up county relief commissions and a state commission o£ 9 members. In the latter group would be three persons representing relief clients, 3 representing social workers, and 3 forming a citizens' group. All would be named by the governor and would receive per diem expenses of S9. The bill would establish mini- mum standards for relief based on t h e contention t h a t enrollees should receive a "minimum necessary to maintain life in health and decency" by providing adequately for purchase "under local standards." These standards would be based on the cost of food, housing, clothing, medical and denial care, household goods and carrying charges on homes. "Would Pay Cash. Payment of cash to the relief recipients would be at least twice monthly. The measure further would prevent the disqualification of any recipient from direct aid bcrause lie refused to accept work at less than the union scale o£ wages. Nor could the recipients be barred from union affiliation of his or her choice. The tax installment bill was introduced by Rep. E. H. Reilly (D) of Dubuque, as a means, he said, of saving many homesteads now doomed to be assigned by the counties because of delinquencies. At Rainbow Reunion.

An educational meat program which last year reached men of the tiEde representing 25,fi50 retail outlets, will be presented before the retail meat dealers o£ Miison City and the surrounding terrilnry, by Max O. Cullen, mer- ehancVsing specialist of the national livestock and meat board, at the Hotel Hanford Tuesday, March 16, at 8 p. m. Invitations to retail meat dealers are being sent out by Jacob E. Becker, and Sons and local trades organizations. O. W. Wallmo, division sales manager of Jacob K. Decker and Sons, is in charge o£ the arrangements and will be chairman of the meeting. New Information Found. Asserting that the old saying, "thei'e is nothing neiv under the sun," certainly does not apply to the subject of meat, Mr. Culien says that a wealth, of new information regarding meat merchandising, meat cookery and the food value oC meat has been made available within the past few* MAX O. CULLEN' years. "The program to be presented at the meeting," says Mr. Cullen, "is designed to help every retailer with li ! .s problems. In our contacts with retailers from coast to coast we have found them eager to keep abreast of all new revelations regarding meat's selection, preparation and food value. They are interested in methods oC presenting their product to the consumer in the most attractive form. They realize the value of passing on these newer facls about meat to the homemaker, who buys the greater percentage of the meat supply." Mr. Cullen is enabled to bring his audiences the most recent information concerning all phases of the subject of meat, since his organization was responsible for initialing research studios in meat at leading colleges and universities. Newer Facls Revealed. Here are some of the newer facts which have been revealed: The less-demanded cuts of meat are lust as nutritious as the more select culs. Tender cuts of meat are best prepared with dry heat, while the less tender culs should be cooked with moist heat. Contrary to former ideas, the heat should not be turned on full blast in preparing a roast--a low tem- peraluve over a longer cooking period brings best results. Meat, instead of being a cause of diseitsc, is actually being used in the treatment of certain diseases. Recent studies have shown that lean meat is the basis of an effective weigiil- reduction diet and also the value of mea! in Ihe weight-gaining diet. These are only a few or the newer revelations which will be touched on by Mr. Cullen in his program. In addition, he will introduce modern cuts of beef, pork and lamb, and thoroughly cover all p.i«ases of (he work of meal merchandising.
