LEGISLATOR IN "WEHRY" TALK Mitchell County ManonKGLOto Discuss Law The patience, toierance and cooperation of the people of Iowa was asked in the legislature's attempt to solve the liquor question, as H. F. Hisse, representative from Mitchell county, addressed the KGLO North Iowa Forum audience Saturday evening. "I regret that House Filfe 400 is the best at this time that we can hold up before you," said the speaker," but it is the best that we could get out of the blasts of the storm. "It has corrective measures in that it lessens the number of beer dispensers, removes class "C" pel inits and throws move safeguards around our youth . . ." Extreme Views The legislator asserted that' the assembly is confronted with many different schools of thought, such as the extreme dry, the extreme wet and the middle o£ the road plodder. He added that the legislators could not hope to win any point from either of the extremes, so must be dependent upon the .fellow who is open to reason. "It seems to me that the first step to be taken by the temperance school," continued the legislator, "is to promote an educational program that will build up strength through heart and head power rather than legal power. Society Must Learn ··'The final elimination of this evil will be through education or the more costly one of over indulgence, whereby society becomes so disgusted with it that she throws the gear in reverse and prays for relief." In expressing his views on the local option bill, Mr. Risse said that he ; believed in the measure on the large scale, applying to the whole state instead of a county, because he believed it could not work out any other way. The speaker intimated that no liquor law would be successful in which one community would be wet and the other dry. Need Universal Laws "A house divided against'itself /xannot stand," said the represen- / tative, "and shall I say that this Reliable Service Our staff is trained in the packing and handling of all types of material.

Backstage in Iowa Politics Legislative Machinery Is Well Oiled in Effort to Push Adjournment at Time When Lawmakers' Pay Will Come to End Two Memorials for John Sutter Prepared SACRAMENTO, Cal., (U.PJ--The memory of Capt.

(Iowa Daily Press Association) DES MOINES--Because the legislators work without pay after 100 days of a session have elapsed, there is every reason to believe that machinery in both houses will be well-oiled during the next three weeks if the law makers intend to adjourn on the April 19 quitting date. $1,000 Each legislator receives $1,000 ^session, figured on a $10 per diem basis. The speaker of the house and the lieutenant governor receive $2,000 . a session, the speaker receiving $1,000 more than other representatives because of his added duties. Thus the salaries of the legislators--108 representatives and 50 senators--plus that of the lieutenant governor cost the state $161,000 per session. This is in addition to mileage for H*~ * TM _ . *_ ii_ _ . . 1 . . . a _ .o each institution, or a total ol 474, under the original measure. * s ^ POOR PRESIDENT State Insurance Commissioner :harles R.

With jne exception each assured Fischer that he would vote for Wilson.

PAY CONTINUES Clerks and other legislative attaches would just as soon the session lasted all summer for they are paid for each day they work bej'ond April 13 at the regular rate of pay during the actual session. "WHX?" Editorially, the Ottumwa Cour" comments: "The 87 members iet of the Iowa house of representatives who voted to eliminate Class C beer permits will find it increasingly difficulty to explain to constitutents just what they were trying to do. ... This action . . . drives the housewives, wishing to buy beer, into direct contact with the liquor stores and other places if they want beer for use in the home. As the law has stood, they have been permitted to order beer, as they would any other commodity, have it delivered for home use. f c * LACKS "COMMOX SENSE" It continues: "We are not promoting the liquor business. But it is here, we have it, and it should be handled with the best possible protection. Common sense should be used in its control. The hou-e by its paradoxical action, has shown little common sense. . . . RELEASED Iowa Commerce Commission Chan-man Ban- Keshlear has been released from the hospital at Creston where he was under treatment for serious injuries sustained in a March 4 automobile accident. He must wear a "Floyd Gibbons'* dark patch over his left eye. ' * *t n SIFTING With sifting committees hard at work, it is increasingly difficult at this stage of the session to predict which bills will be brought out and which will be killed. For that reason, rumors fly thick and fast about nearly every measure on which that group still has the power to pass. SCHOLARSHIPS Two weeks ago it appeared that the scholarship bill would never appear on the floor of the senate. This measure proposes that each of the 158 law makers may grant one scholarship a year to a person in his territory, to each of the state-supported schools at Ames Cedar Falls and Iowa City.

Maharanee of India Well Known to North Iowa Pair ' GARNER--Mr. and Mrs. Martin Hagen, who moved here several years ago from Minneapolis, are not planning a trip to visit the Maharajah and Maharanee of Yeshwant in India, they assert, but it wouldn't be impossible. For the maharanee is an old friend of the Hagen family and at one time spent many hours in their home in Minneapolis. At that time the American girl who married the wealthy ruler of 1,'325,OQO inhabitants of a province in India was Miss Marguerite Lawler, a student nurse and classmate of Mrs. Hagen's sister, Miss Edna Huber. They recall Miss Lawler as a pretty brunet whose only aspirations seemed to be to become as good a nurse as proper training could make. From Minneapolis Miss Lawler and Miss Huber went to Ann Arbor, Mich., to take post graduate work. After their graduation there they went together to New York to seek their fortunes which in each case turned out to be marriage. Miss Lawler met the maharajah in California some years ago when she was caring for his three children by a former marriage. Miss Huber while traveling through the south with a wealthy New York man who was an invalid, met her future husband in West Virginia and is now Mrs. L. S. DilUngham. The Hagens had known of the engagement for more than three years before the marriage of Miss Lawler to the maharojah, they said. Both he and Miss Lasvlei- were 30 years old.
