BUMBARGER (lojva Daily Press Writer) Des Moines, (IDPA)--Unless a candidate for state office wants to pull a miracle or spend money recklessly, he must set aside a minimum p£ 2 weeks to circulate nomination papers. Since the deadline for filing is March 17, it would seem the field might be known by March 3. . While it is possible to take out papers without divulging name of potential candidate or office sought, the secret generally becomes public property when petitions are passed around. A few papers on a hush-hush basis have gone out this year, WHERE ARE THEY?--It probably is significant that there has been no talk around the capitol this week of additional republican slate office seekers. This especially is true, since only a couple of weeks ago, advance thinkers were contemplating prospects of convention settlement of some contests. No surprise would be occasioned now if the ticket remained as it is. ' DIVERGENT INTERESTS--An interesting gngle to proposed Missouri river valley development, aired before the house flood control committee in Washington, is divergent interests of affected states, lowans pay close heed to reclamation, flood control and navigation but care nothing about irrigation, a vital concern to other states. BIGGEST FIGURE.--Short of the national debt, most impressive figure dropped into public prints recently is that of an 100-million dollar expenditure planned for Jowa post-war construction. It shrinks so^ie in knowledge thai most of it would go for road, street and bridge building, halted by war. MAKES HIM SQUIRM--Public reaction to news-of. a 5,000 lay-off at Ankeny ordnance plant stirs Major Frank Miles of state selective service headquarters, who can't see war's end even with a telescope. He emphasizes dismissals mean ONLY sufficient supplies have accumulated of a certain type of war material. The need in other armament lines may be critical in shifting requirements for global war. SECRET'S OUT--Politicians now know where the voters are. A new census report giving population o£ Iowa counties in 1940 and 1943 won't be overlooked for other reasons. It presents a rough outline of how many have entered the armed service and extent of migration to war industry areas. BITS--When Tam'W. Pureell, Hampton editor and state, printing board member, visits Gresham, Ore., the folks are fully informed . . . "Famed Iowa Editor Visiting in Gresham," reads a page one banner in (he Gresham Outlook . . . Beneath, a picture and column-long story . . . Many Iowa editors heaped editorial praise on Wendell Willkie for urging a heavier U. S. tax burden . . / T h e r e are rumors that Gardner (Mike) Cowles of Des Moines may not persist in an effort to become a delegate to the republican national convention, particularly if it appears that he can put in more effective licks for Willkie without this status.
