FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 1845 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Backstage in Iowa Politics Legislatures "Quibble About What t Should Come First in Discussion of Laws ' By PAUL R. BCMBARGER , (Iowa Dally Press Writer) Des Moines, (IDP A)--Biggest behind-the-scenes light in the legislature is over putting first things first. Involved in a controversy is what.should come first--"state income tax, regular state appropriations or school legislation among ethers. "Don't Fence Me la" is an ac r curate musical description of'the Farm Bureau's plight. In the center of a buttonholing beehive, the bureau is plunking for school code revision, a full state income tax to help pay for it and trying to bat down proposals to halt considera- Uoo ol school bills until state institutional and departmental needs are met. On the Other Hand: Other forces want to take immedip.te favorable action on reinstatement of a 50 per cent, cut in the income tax, give the" green light to routine state. biennial needs. and state institution building programs. They are aided by a lack of contention for funds between the board of control and' board · of education, where rivalry occasionally: has existed jnMhe past, !'.School.'Strategy: Procedure of the school forces will be id present reorganization, bills -first .because other code revision measure^ hinge upon what happens to them. State aid for schools also is slated for early action. Rep. Albert Steinberg, Ames, as chairman of the house schools committee, is expected to iake an active part in handling these bills. It remains to be seen whether he will become such a single-handed champion'as the late Hep. W. P. Knowlton, Decorah, in the last legislature. Resignation of Hep. B. S. Moyls, Maquoketa, and election of former fiep. A. L. Doud Jr., Douds, to the state senate removed from the house 2 school code commission members. House members with a "school" background, largely are confined to" legislative newcomers. The situation's different in the senate. · N e w and Old: Observers actively supporting school legislation theorize the young legislators generally are-more ardent in then- support of the program than older members, far removed from the classroom. The rub is. that because of war, tiie legislature 'doesn't have a normal quota of youth. Even'so, the legislators say privately that something will be done for the teachers during-the session. WIND UP: Statehouse*sources say that departure of a couple of state employes, a word of warn- ing here and there and a final report, which will be made public in 2 weeks but not name names, will conclude an investigation into alleged state expense account padding. Amounts involved in hotel stops of - employes under scrutiny are reported to fae below $100 per individual. State checkers are reported to have filed a preliminary report on the probe with Gov. B. B. Hickenlooper on Nov. 25. Gov. Robert D. Blue did not learn of the investigation until a week ago. OFF TO INAUGURAL: Democrats' big day cotftes Saturday when President Roosevelt will take oath for a 4th term. Illness to the family may keep National Committeeman G. G. (Bert) Jeck, Atlantic, at home. Among Iowa democrats going to -Washington for the ceremony will be State Chairman and Mrs. Jake More, Harlan; Mrs. Florence Lynch, Le- Mars, national committeewoman, and Mrs. Benona Young, Bloomfield, state' vice chairman. BITS: In checking Iowa inaugural data, newshawks learned of, the existence of one Lt. Col. Harlie Alphonso . Grantham of the state guard. ; . .He's best known as "Tex"' Grantham of the state tax commission. . . . Gossip in democratic circles is that' Ik. J. Ahlers, LeMars democrat, has the .inside track for reappointment as state highway commissioner. ... He has a dozen or more rivals for the post. Clare Luce Thinks De Gaulle Should Be Asked to Big 3 Meeting Washington, U.R) --Rep. Clare Boothe Luce (R., Conn.) said Friday that Gen. Charles De Gaulle should be invited to participate in the scheduled big, three conference as a testimonial to France's role of an heroic ally. Mrs. Luce, recently returned from-a European tour, in an interview lauded the French as "the only liberated Europeans, with the possible exception of the · poor Poles, who are fighting effectively at pur side." i There is no hope for peace in Europe without a strong, democratic France, capable of keeping Germany in check, she said. She added t h a t because of the "vacuum-like quality" of this country's foreign policy, France is turning to Russia.. "The French are in the same position as the British," she said. "They want assurances that we will make them strong again." .':. She said she regretted American delay in accepting^De Gaulle and remarked tHat he saved France from falling into the political chaos Italy has experienced. "I am very hopeful about the future of France," Mrs. Luce said. ' De Gaulle has proved himself a leader. It remains to be seen whether he is also a politician.
