Backstage in Iowa Politics Iowa List of lowans Over 65 Will Reach Saturation Point and Level Off at 60,000, According to Experts By FRANK NYE, JR. (Iowa Daily Press Association) DBS MOINES, (IDPA)--With impending pension legislation in the legislature it is well to note that some 52,000 lowans over 65 are now listed on the state's old age pension division rolls. As near as can be figured by experts working in the pension field, the Iowa list will reach its saturation point and level off at 60,000. * u 3 FOURTH A greater percentage of Iowa's population--7.46 per cent figured in the 1930 census--isr over 65 than in any other state of the union except Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Iowa's percentage is believed to be nearer 7.85 than 7.46 now. If the 7.85 figure is true the state's percentage of _aged is more than half again as much as the percentage of persons over 65 in the nation as a whole. REASON 'Chief reason advanced for this high 'percentage in an agricultural state; is that Iowa young people, unable to find positions in Iowa industries, leave the state for greener fields. * * * "WHOA" Senators should not be alarmed if they, should receive an unexpected guest in the form of a colt or donkey in the lofty chamber. Senator'.Carl Sjulin, Hamburg re- publicari, is plotting the surprise as a method of illustrating the "horse and mule" bill which would exempt such animals from taxation. o * * 100 DATS It's a 50-50 bet the legislature doesn't adjourn until the 100 day session is over April 19 or later, despite all the talk of "let's get out of here." This, because the important appropriations bill isn't 40 DIFFERENT STYLES AT The "torch" color for your outfit! Stunning styles with exquisite dressmaker detail! DUTCH DEBS! STITCHED SANDALS!

In addition to eliminating Class C permits in a beer bill--a victory for tavern keepers--the house, voted to place a 10 per cent special sales tax on all liquor purchased in 17C state owned stores, to raise $800,000 additional revenue. The tax would replace the present two per cent sales tax. * » * INTENT One of the original intents of the Class C permit, which is for sale of beer to be consumed off the premises, was,to discourage drinking on the premises. One of the original intents of the liquor law was to eliminate bootleggers. The actions seem to be in direct conflict with the original intents. , * =* * EXCEPTION Ex-Treasurer Leo J. Wegman now president of the Citizens Savings bank of Anamosa, has taken exception to an item carried in this column recently, in which republicans contended he ordered 100,300,000 cigaret stamps before leaving office. Ex-Treasurer Wegman declares that he did not order the stamps. Technically speaking he absolutely right. The actua; writing- out of the order is done by the comptroller's office-under law contained in Section 1574 of the 1935 Iowa code. * * * NORMAL Actually, however, it is customary procedure to consult the treasurer of his subordinates in the cigaret licensing division, before ordering the stamps, according to Acting Comptroller C. Free Porter. There was nothing unusua about ordering 100,000,000 cigare stamps since that is a norms' year's supply. Republicans cut i down to 38,400,000 to last until July 1 for the bill prohibiting 'bootleg" c i g a r e t s -- r e q u i r i n g manufacturers or distributors rather than retailers to affix stamps to packages of cigarets-- probably will be law by that time Vfrs.
