By LOU OABD.NEB get another grist through the legislative mills and back to the floor for another day's calendar. Both houses are plunging into their work with a diligence and earnestness as intense as we have ever witnessed. The First Bills The first Senate bill to go to the Governor for his signature went House Bills The following are among 1 the bills introduced in the House: Giving trustees power to receive gifts for library purposes . . . Changing tax sale date from December to January . . . Exempt, ing members of the armed forces In Full Swing The legislature full from requiring fishing, hunting I governor icr ms signature wem and trapping licenses . . . Chang, down on the 27th. It provided for ing primary- election from first 'reveibion to the general fund of Monday to first Tuesday in June went to the Governor on the 25th. There were two, both of them duced in 327 This cornpaies with 1941 session at the i period, and to 279 in the 1039 ses-1 ln the Background sion. The number of bills already. Th( , war p s y c hoiopy hanfrs over in tl» hopper is a quarter o a the sessions and lurf^ i n the hack. W l 7fc W i li n third of the total which will be introduced if the session reaches, the" average of past assemblies. At the end of the eighteenth day 136-bflls had been filed in the Senate, compared with 192 in 1911 ground constantly. It shows up frequently in consideration of legislation. It is evident in bills in- troduccd to exempt members of the armed forces from need for fishing and hunting licenses, in granting '·fad 115 in 1939. The -?° USe -,Q^! tax exemptions to soldiers and ' Raising sal_ of guard? at Ft. Madison rcctions of errors in code numbers, penitentiary and Anamosa refor matory . , .

An Average Day Last Tuesday 158 in 1941 was a good ex- « ample of what makes up a busy ,',' day at this stage of the assembly. *'| The House convened at 10 o'clock. f By 10-25 nil routine matters had xT been taken care of and there being no bUls on the calendar adjourn. 3 ment was taken for the day. This ' left an entire afternoon which to those .vho do not take note of wnat sailors, and in other measures. I t j often appears in questions raised as to how pending legislation will affect the war effort, and in mak, ing discriminations for the "dur_ ation " In it all there stands out the very apparent fact that what is uppermost in mind is the welfare of our country-, and loyalty and protection to its armed forces;. These come first with full consideration of our state and its people standing next in the ear_ Claiming Homestead Exemptions? Permitting investigators to claim homestead exemptions for those receiving old age assistance the average legislator does, might nes t goal sought. Mean "hours of idleness. Not so-- j shott .

Senate we say here of the House , f . _ rise true of the Senate ·s . ·where, more work is done in com,, mittees than in the House. That . :ame day the Senate convened at 10 o'clock and ran until 12:15. ·There was a cleanup of 12 bills which were on the calendar when the day's session opened. Cleaning .the calendar meant that commit. We notice a little uneasiness here and there over the state regarding the number of bills going into the legislative hopper. This is because the general feeling seems to be--and this is reflected in the attitude of many legislative members--that the less of re form and change we have for the duration, the better. There is no cause for alarm. The flood of bills is an example of representative government at work. The fine thing is that the bills are getting in early which gives ample op_ portunity to study them. The budget is already before the appropriations committee and its members arc hard at work. In both JEHOVAH'S WITNESS A divorce was filed by Margery Martin apninst Wilford Mavrin, both of Greenfield.
