20 THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 1945 NO DISCUSSION OF SCHOOL CODE Say Legislators Need Time to Organize i Des Moines, (a 5 )--Proponents ot proposed revisions in the Iowa school code'were reported Wednesday to be -marshaling their forces against a resolution which would require the legislature to appropriate funds for; state departmental expenses and perhaps for capital improvements at state institutions, .before considering sny school matters. ' Discussion'of-the resolution had been slated; to. begin Wednesday morning in the senate but it did not materialize. Sen. 'John P. Berg (H., Cedar Falls), author of the resolution, said it was not brought up because it was essential that MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE several committees be given time to organize. He said it would be brought up Thursday. There were cloakroom reports, however, that one of the reasons (he matter did not come up was that school code forces wanted more time to prepare opposition against it. Sen. Robert Keir (R., Spencer), member of the commission which dratted the school code revisions, said he was opposed to the resolution. Several other supporters of the school bill said they feared that it the resolution were adopted the legislature would make appropriations for necessary operating and building operations and then adjourn without acting on schooV matters. The school bills, although not yet introduced,· are taking first place in public thought about the session. This is shown by the fact that 9 or 10 petitions are received daily by lawmakers from parent- teacher organizations and others supporting the bills. In addition, sortie members are receiving personal Setters coupling support of the school bills and return of the income tax. to .the full rate. School code supporters hope for the full rate on the state tax as one means of providing money for their program. ; ...'·· The senate met for only a half hour Wednesday morning, but met again Wednesday afternoon. It passed no bills, but received 5 new proposals. The house passed 12 .minor measures and*received 10 new ones during the morning and adjourned until 11 a. m. Thursday. One ; of the bills introduced in the senate would create a board of examiners to regulate the work of watchmakers. The 5-man board would be appointed by the governor to "promote the educational and professional standards of watchmakers." ·Eight senators joined in sponsoring the measure. It provides for examinations for men engaged in making or repairing watches and a $10 fee for such a license. Another senate- measure would increase the compensation of county 'sheriffs for boarding prisoners from 20 to 24 cents a meal in counties of more than 40,000 population, and from 20 to 28 cents a meal in counties of 40,000 or less. Among measures .given final approval by the house was one which would require the'state board of social welfare to provide county auditors each December .with 'a list of recipients of old age assistance. The list 'also would show the clients who had been removed from the list in the previous year. . Among the measures Introduced in the house was one to prohibit dancing in any place where'beer is served. Under the bill there could b e ' n o booths' in places where - beer : is" served and "such places could serve no food except one 3-ounce sandwich to each cus- .tomer. The establishment cAild deal in no merchandise other than tobaceo^and cigarets. Another of the new house measures would increase the salary of grand jurors from $3 to $7 a day and increase the mileage allowance from one round trip to as many as necessary, at, the present 5 cents a mile payment. U. S. Jaycees Name Rockefeller Nation's Outstanding Young Man Chicago, MPJ--The "nation's outstanding young man" of 1944,"as adjudged by the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce, is Nelson A. Rockefeller, 36, assist- anfsecretary of state and son of John D. Rockefeller. Rockefeller's name headed the, list of the "10 outstanding young men of 1944" announced Tuesday night by Mearns T. Gates, Junior Chamber president. Two of the group included Associated Press War Correspondents' Harold V. Boyle and Daniel De Luce. / The selections were described by Gates as an annual honor by the Junior Chamber' to the young men considered to have made the greatest^ contributions to the nation's welfare. He said nominations .of.service men candidates were not'accepted because of recognition and awards by the armed forces for outstanding service in line of dutyl Carabao Is Worse Enemy Than Japs By FRED HAMFSON With The U. S. 6th Army, Luzon, (ffi--So far the carabao-- Philippine w a t e r buffalo--has been a more formidable enemy than the Japanese in this sector. One American soldier has t e e ri gored to death and .1 or 2 have been hurt. Most of. the doughboys, however,' have b e e n nimble enough to avoid harm. These.ca'rabab, stolid beasts of all purposes, don't like the Yanks Filipinos think it's their different odor.. The American soldier had little trouble with the beasU on Leyte, but the Luzon species is · either pro-Japanese or anti-American or both. Filipinos who are violently pro-American, are most embarrassed by the hostility of t h e i r animals. . Most carabao are about the size o f . large oxen with powerful shoulders and neck. Some have long, sharp horns. Filipinos plow with them, haul produce with them, ride them a n d ' sometimes eat them. They are usually tied in the -rice paddies- but occasionally they stray on to roads unattended. A Japanese lieutenant com- manding an outpost in the U. S. western beachhead sector didn't realize how close he was to an American-roadblock. The enemy officer drove directly in front of the roadblock-in his well polished 1940 sedan. An American machine-gunner gawked in surprise, pulled the trigger. It was curtains for the lieutenant--and that's how the 1st American-made automobile was captured on Luzon. Carpenter--T. V. Adams, Oakland, Minn., is spending this week at the home of his daughter, Mrs N. L. Culbertson. Kudd--Mrs. Abbie Steward of Mason City is spending the week with her friend, Mrs. B. A, Duesenberg. TEACHES RESIGNS Goldfield--Miss Wilda McCutch- con, who has been teaching com-' mercial subjects in Manson high, school the past 2 years, has re-! signed and is visiting at the home 1 , of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. D. McCutcheon. · The R.2 m o r t a r has been a weapon of many purposes in the Pacific war but perhaps not until Luzon did'it ever serve to knock but tanks. _ -Several of these formidable weapons were trained on a covey of Japanese taukettes during 'the short fight for. Port Sual at the western end of the American beachhead. . · · Three tankettes were disabled long enough for tank destroyers to come up and finish them off along with their 2 man crews. Some Filipinos are talking the American doughboys out of almost 'everything; except the shirts on their backs. Filipinos much prefer clothes or army rations to money, both as a medium for barter and as payment for work they do^-and no wonder. There's'little or nothing they can buy with money, and besides they are fascinated by army clothing'and food.
