HERE and T H E R E Des Moines, (IP)--An assertion iat Iowa counties have taken dvantage of 1943 legislative en- ctmcnt to shift to the state Xhe iiirden of medical care in some Id age pension cases was made iy State Senator Dewey E. Goqde .R), Blooml'ield, at a legislative iterira committee meeting Thursday. Goode said that as a result of he removal by the 1943 general ssembly of the S25-a-month ceil- ng on aid age assistance grants, omc cases ill which counties vere obligated to draw on their poor funds to provide medical are had been improperly taken care of with state funds. The senator declared the state social welfare board was going )eyond the intent of the legisla- :ure in authorizing old age assistance grants above S40 a month since the federal government dcesn't provide matching funds 'or payments above that level. "As it is, we arc losing that much federal revenue," Goode said. ".Medical aid always has ben a county obligation. What money they get over $40 is just taking $2 for $1 away from other pensioners. That means the average pensioner is not receiving as much as he otherwise would." H. C. Beard, a welfare board member, told the committee that about 1,500 persons out of more than 52,000 on the rolls were receiving grants of more than £40 a month and that the average payment last month was $27.21. Mrs. Mary Huncke, board chairman, said the board was "going by the advice of an assistant attorney general." Board members declared the legislature directed that the applicant's need should determine the amo.unt of the monthly grant and estimated not more than 5225,000 was paid out annually in state old age assistance funds without being matched by federal money because of the §40 provision. Not more than 30 cents a month could be added to the individual pension check if the $40 ceiling were observed in all cases, board members said.

CAMPBELL URGES HELP FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS Iowa Educator Wants More State Aid Money By PAUL R. BUMBARGER (Iowa Daily Press Writer) Des Moines--(1DPA)--Urging ; 12 million dollar state outlay the next 2 years to public schools. Lee H. Campbell, Spencer, presiden of the Iowa State Teachers association, suggested this could be "maintained easily" by restoratioi of the full state income tax, now cut in half. He alluded to a "largo reserve' in the state treasury as a facto: permitting more state aid to schools and said that it was "to the best interest of the people o Iowa to protect the education o their children now and in th future/' The 52 year old speech instruc tor goes about his duties as heac of the teacher organization al most with an evangelical enthu siasm. Among his innovation, were appointment of committee to study federal aid for cdoicatioi and war and postwar planning. H is concerned about the role of thi school in civilization's present am future. Main support Jcr schools no\ comes from the property tax Campbell asserting that low: ranks 49th amony taxing units ii percentage of school money de rived from "intangible" levies. H says salaries paid Iowa teacher are low compared with those other states and proposes to d something about it. He regards as his number on problem that of "revising th method of financing so teacher can be paid adequate salari Meetings Of North Iowa Organizations PLYMOUTH--The semi month- f meeting of the W.

Campbell views the teacher ihortage a"s a "serious problem," ;eos a ''serious lag" in salaries aid them considering "increased iving costs" and forecasts that a ·pinch will be felt next fall." Teachers don't expect shipyard vorker wages, he says, but it will be impossible to hold a sufficient number for September's school opening. L The limit has been reached schools drawing teachers from other places in Iowa," he said. "The lumber of teachers in training is down." Campbell thinks war will deey- i lowans' appreciation ot the schools, their function in training for victory and winning the peace Sschewing mention of the spec- :acular, he frankly views "continued operation on a basic program" lo be the schools' most important war contribution. He predicts in the postwar period the county will go Ear beyonc the usual school function by providing instruction for relurnin, veterans and a general program of adult education. Regarding thi schools as proper education centers, he warns that "control could go to a federal board." "If we don't watch we will have dual system of education, 1 ' he said, urging lowans to keep school: under control of state and loca communities "in a democrat! way." Teaching can be made more at tractive, Campbell thinks, by pro viding "reasonable continual con tracts for teachers." t; Thc problem involves not onl; supplying relatively adequate sal aries but something you can intangible compensation found professional and economic secur ily--a system that protects teach ers from petty politics and person alities. A state retirement systen would ayoid situations where school district continues service of a teacher because of sympathy. OFFER MASS FOR SGT.

There they raised the things they needed... sheep for wool and mutton, flax for cloth they wove at home, hogs for meat and "cracklins," cattle for leather and substantial roast beef, grain they ground themselves. Wood from the surrounding forests kept them warm in winter. That was making the most of what they had at hand. Thai "asdiitrjifita farming. Since thai day, most farms do not have as many different crops. Instead, they grow and produce only those crops that fit naturally together. In our business, diversification follows the tame principle. We prepare products that arc related. For example, we make salad oils because the same knowledge that enables us to make fine lard is used in processing oils. The same salesmen and delivery equipment may be used in the sale and handling of all of our prod- ucts. lOur by-products and our other products arc all telated, and naturally fit into out business. That is practical diversification. So, over a period of years, there has never been a year when some departments of Swift Company did not make money and some lose. For example, the less favorable earnings of our fresh meat departments during 19-13 were oiftct by earnings in the non-meat departments.
