MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE HOEVEN NAMED TO COMMITTEE ,V Agricultural Placement ': Ends Appointments By E. P. CHASE Iowa Daily Press Writer ^Washington, D. C., (1DPA)-- The republican house committee onj committees have named Charles R.yHoeven, Alton, as the republican member from Iowa on the house agricultural, committee. This completes the Iowa committee assignments with the exception of those.of the newest member, Rep. James I. Dolliver, Ft. Dodge. · ' Western republicans out-gener- alded republicans in the east in the committee placings, capturing an increased number of the minority places on important committees. One of the hardest fighters for western recognition was Rep Karl M. LeCompte, Corydon Iowa, member of the committee on committees. The result mark, an epoch in republican history. I indicated to no small extent tha control of the republican party i passing to the west where th party was born. Recent presiden tial elections have shown thi trend. The growing strength o rganized labor, especially in the ongested areas of the eastern sea- oard, makes such control im- ossible. It seems logical that if he republican party is to. svin vic- ories in the future it will be done iy the more liberal appeal. Uncertainty of Life--The house adjourned Monday out of respect o the memory of Rep. James Francis O'Connor, one of the two members o£ the house from Mon- ana. O'Connor was found dead n bed at his home in Washington. A few days prior to his passing he lad visited with Rep. John Iwynne of Waterloo and told Mr. Gwynne that he was getting iveai-y of congressional service, that he had a ranch in Montana and that after his current term fie intended to give up his lav. practice, all political activities and live out the rest o£ his days on the ranch. O'Connor, a democrat, was born in'California Junction, Iowa, and received his general education at Iowa university and the State Normal school, now the State Teachers' college at Cedar Falls. Iowa Manufacturer--C. L. Parris of the Parris-Dunn company, Clarinda manufacturers, arrived in Washington Monday to spend the balance o£ the week. He is here checking on the possible moves to be made in connection with the proposal for universal military training o£ the youth o£ :he nation after the war. Parris' concern manufactures' dummy rifles, which are quite generally used in training. He visualizes the extensive use of them in whatever program in the United States should adopt. Parris says that service men to whom he has talked almost unanimously favor giving the military training through the schools and colleges and taking care of those, who do not go to college, through the National Guard and other organizations. This and That--Charles H. Tye of Orange City, .county superintendent of schools of Sioux county, has been in Washington visiting his sister, Mrs. Karl M. LeCompte . . . David T.
