WATCHES - DIAMONDS EXPERT WATCH REPAIRING DIAMOND SETTING School Children of Iowa Making Visits to State Legislature DES MOINES, W-Iowa school children are making their biennial bow to the Iowa legislature--and vice versa. Usually the visits to the state's law-making halls are perfunctory affairs, devoid of formality and most ot the time without fanfare. However on some occasions members of the house or senate will call upon the visiting sons and daughters of constituents to arise in the galleries for a legislative greeting -- mostly a feeble clapping of the hands. After a five-minute bird's eye view of what is going on, the visiting pupils clump up the stairs and out into the halls. Classes from Des Moines elementary schools arc the most numerous, but there is a liberal sprinkling all through the spring session ot boys and girls from many nearby counties and some not so near. A public address svstem has greatly improved both "house and senate accoustics. Charles City Globe-Gazette OFFICE PHONE 1052 ,, .. .
