There were a few hogs sold here Saturday, generally at 10 cents higher quotations than last Thursday. A lew hogs sold at $15 a hundred pounds, the first time that level had been obtained since Oct. 22. It was the top January price for swine since 1920. Hogs weighing 190 to 300 pounds brought $14.65 to $14.90 Lighter weights were more in demanc than heavier types and scored the _ largest upturns. Although eastern buyers were fairly active on better grade steers and yearlings, the general marke was only steady to weak. Kinds selling at $16 and higher, however, were fully steady.

Backstage in Iowa Politics Hick'enlooper to Face New Session .of Assembly With Considerable Experience in Legislative Matters By FKANK T. NTTE (Iowa Daily Press Writer) ·rtaiT. th^iS- 1 !^ 8 ' JD £ A -- For th e 50th time since lows became a be^inaulurated C "**"" **** "**· Ultl * ^ g ° vernor ^ It was not always thus. Until Jan. 14, 1907, the legislatures held their sessions in the even-numbered years. The meeting date was changed in 1904 and the 1906 legislature met as scheduled with' odd-numbered year sessions beginning the following year. ' *.,J ri? J ° ne u° wa governor has wished that the legislature still met on even-numbered years, especially incoming governors thus allowing them one year in office to become acquainted with their jobs before approaching the legislature with a message In the case of Gov.-Elect B. B. Hickenlooper this isn't so true because he has had considerable legislative experience directly nre- ceeding his election. * * * * * TECHNICAL--O£ course those who live on technicalities are agnast that Iowa will be unrepresented by a junior senator for all ot eiglu days while Gov. George A. Wilson completes his term 'as chief executive. But then, those who aren't particularly aghast at anythin* these days, point out that there have been several times during Iowa's 3d years that there was a question whether the state was bein" represented even with two full time senators on the job. DEGREES--When you know that the University of Iowa has conferred degrees on 2,000 persons during the calendar year of 1942 you get. some idea how college education has been stepped up to meet the emergency. The usual number of degrees conferred during a similar period in peacetime is .more nearly 1,300 to 1,500. Other Iowa colleges have accelerated their programs in much the same manner * * * * * * LAST WORD--If it's true that a woman always gets in the last word--and we've never seen any man step .forward .to dispute it- then we wouldn't give a hang for that 98 to 10 republican majority in the Iowa house. The lone woman in the lower chamber is Representative Mae A. Lynch, Pocahontas, a democrat. ~£ *£ *fr FEELIXG--How does a man feel when he's leaving his state job? Backstage found Secretary of Agriculture Mark G. Thornburg seated in his assistant's chair with his feet on the desk, the day he left office. Said Mark: "Here I am just where I started 20 years ago. but 1 didn't have enough nerve to put my feet on the desk then " * * * *£ ¥ ¥ - TlCKLED-^When Secretary of State Earl G. Miller handed the keys to his office over to his successor, Wayne M. Ropes, he said: "I'm just as tickled to leave this office as I was to come in four years ago." * * * -V- ¥ * CLEANING--The job of cleaning the legislative halls for the session is virtually complete. Desks are now undergoing a thorough refinishing and chairs, stored away when the last session ended, are malting their appearances. One of the hardest jobs is to lower the huge chandeliers and shine their many pieces until they sparkle. ¥ * * BITS--Although the election has been over three months it has never been OFFICIALLY determined who Iowa's governor and lieutenant governor will be for the next two years. . Furthermore nobody will know OFFICIALLY until the legislature canvasses the vote. . . . But we'll bet no one is going to be too surprised at the result. . . . Iowa health department hint: "The greatest protector public health in Iowa isn't even in the state; he's the man behind " gun, wherever he is. of the National Safety Group Lists Oddest Accidents of Year By WILLIAM McMENAMIN Unicdt Press Slaff Correspondent CHICAGO, (U.R)--Pvt. John Fein was shaving informally in the lude in his barracks at Williams Field,' Ariz., when a fly attacked him £rom the rear--and the result was one of the dizziest mis- laps of the year reported in a national council survey. Private Fein struck at the in- ruder with his straight-edge razor. .He killed the fly, and was able to resume shaving after hospital at- :endants had applied an eight- inch bandage to his posterior. The safety council roundup of odd accidents showed the 1942 crop was up to standard despite the topsy-turvy condition of the ·vorld. It published its survey in ;he December issue of its magazine "Public Safety." For instance: * * . * Wallace D. Smith of Louisville, Sy., was flying an airplane at a ow altitude when he saw a girl le thought he knew. He waved to her. She waved back. Pleased by the distraction, pilot Smith flew his plane into a tree op, an electric wire and another ·tree top whore he ended his trip. He shinnied down, hurried to he girl to assure her he wasn't uirt. She wasn't the girl he had iought she was, but a total stran- Ter. But pity the plight of Joa Konecny o£ Great Bend, Kans., who stored his car in a garage at Little lock. Ark., to make an aulo trip vith a friend. As he and his friend vere driving along near Mountain lorne, Ark., their car collided lead-on with another machine. 3oth cars were wrecked. * * * When Konecny crawled from he wreckage and looked at the Dther car. he saw that it was his awn--stolen from the Little Rock 'arage. Eugene B. Grabbe of Denver urvived the most amazing accident of the year with a perform- nce that would do credit to a ircus trapeze performer. Washing windows on the seventh "loor of the U. S. National bank Building, he started to fall as the suckle on his safety belt gave wav. ie hurled himself backward with uch force that he floated through he air, cleared a IG-foot space and anded on his feet atop an adja- ent four-story building. He broke oth his legs but considered him- elf lucky. Industrial accidents contributed heir share. There was the one bout saleslady Bessie Swank ol Bridgeton, N. J., who tried vali- ntly to fit a smal! girdle on a )lump customer. She tugged so ard she was taken to the hospital vith a severe back injury. The ustomer took the girdle. * ·£ * A snake broke into the freak ccident limelight in a prominent ole. It coiled about the ankle of gt. Joseph Baidly of Danville, Pa., s he was digging a ditch at Camp 3 olk. Baidy raised his trench hovel, brought it down full force and broke his leg. The snake slithered away, unharmed. C. W. Braces of Tillamook, Ore saw one of his children take a small object from his wife as she was about to toss it into the stove. The child tsarted to chew on it when Bruces realized with horror that it was a dynamite blasting cap. Gently he took it away from the child. He poked at it curiously with a toothpick and blew off two of his fingers. In Marion, Ohio, a pheasant flew against Fred Maag's windshield as he drove along, breaking a hole in it. Through the opening flew a bee. Maag fought off the bee, lost control of the cqr and it overturned. Maag climbed out of the wreckage, unhurt and unstung. Legislators to Be Hungry and Bearded DES MOINES, «) -- No one seems to want to feed the lawmakers. The state executive council reported today it has not received a single request for permission to operate a cafeteria in the statehouse while the legislature is in session. Usually t h e r e · is a scramble for the job of dperating the eating place. The state owns most of the equipment necessary for such facilities and in the past the cafeteria has been located in the basement. Council members said the matter would be taken up Monday and if there are no bidders for the job, the state probably will operate the cafeteria and hire the help. It is more essential to have an eating place in the building this session than in the past because not as many cars will be available to carry lawmakers to and from the building. Meanwhile it appeared that the lawmakers will have to get their shaves and haircuts away from the statehouse. No one wants to operate a barbershop in the building; Custodian Gray Anderson said. Up until shortly after the last session, there was a barber in the ouilding the year around. Lack of business caused him to discontinue the shop and now no one wants to open up for the three- month period the assembly is in session. Farmers of Hancock County Rally to Call for Hemp Production G A R N E R --Hancock county larmers have heeded the "war cry" "Grow Hemp for Uncle Sam in 1943" and to date meetings have been held in all precincts of the co-only to discuss the growing of this all important crop. AAA committeeman and o v e r 100 farmers have been signed with the program. Mark Jlilier and Walter Kahl o£ Britt were the first two to sign GLOBE-GAZETTE SPORTS High School Athletic Association to Poll Tutors on Eligibility DES MQINES, (.f)--Another poll of school heads will be taken by the Iowa High School Athletic association to determine what persons are to be considered eligible to coach prep athletic teams during the remainder of the pres- sent school year. Lyle Quinn, executive secretary of the association, said after a meeting of the board here that the questionnaires .probably will be distributed this week and will include these questions: 1. Do you favor the retention and enforcement of, the present rule? 2. Do you favor altering the rule to permit anyone holding a certificate as a teacher to serve as coach, even though he does not teach two regular subjects? 3. Do you favor altering the rule to allow anyone, whether or not lie hold a certificate as a teacher, to act as coach? Virtually tile same set of questions was used in a poll last fall, in which members of the association voted to retain the current rule requiring coaches to teach at least two subjects. The Iowa basketball championship series underwent another change at the meeting. There will be 64 sectional tournaments, 28 less than last year, for the field of 835 entries. Winners will advance to eight district meets, champions of which will compete in the title round. BULLDOGS RETURN HOME LOS ANGELES, (ff) _ Minus their backfield star, Frankie Smkwich, who scored the only touchdown in their 9 to 0 Rose Bowl victory over the UCLA Bruins New Year's day, the Georgia Bulldog football players left for home by train Monday after a weekend of sightseeing around the film capital. GOPHEE HUCKSTERS PLAT MINNEAPOLIS, (U.R)--The University of Minnesota hockey team faces the St. James Athletic club of Winnipeg, Ont., here Monday and Tuesday nights in the opening games ot the season. The games originally were scheduled for Dec. 10 and 11, but necessary travel permits were not obtained in time.
