OSSSg^^SSaSSSSESESS^SSSHSSBs^^ TWENTY-SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 25 M 1937 BACKSTAGE IN IOWA POLITICS Soil Conservation Officials Take Name "Wallace" Off Their Headquarters in Des Moines. By GEORGE MELLS Iowa Daily Press Bureau. , Soil conservation officials (the eorn-liog state committee to you) moved swiftly to scoop the political paragraphers here several days ago. They took the name "Wallace" off their own headquarters, even effacing it from- the cornerstone, before anybody had a chance to make a sarcastic reference. ' .' , .'.;' ; The building was built and formerly was "occupied by Secretary Henry's farm publication. It belongs to an insurance company now. a - * * NOTICE TO SOtONS Notice to legislators: Assistant Attorney General Don Burington ·wants you to be sure · to adjourn ·within five weeks. The reason: Burington, a bachelor on John Mitchell's staff, is contemplating matrimony, to take place along about the expected time of adjournment. . Consequently, he doesn't want io be bothered with drawing bills, considering ? claims . against the state and the like after ihidspring. ' ' · UMPIRE OF HOUSE On a rostrum above the Iowa house level 1 sits, the speaker, acting as an umpire to keep the leg- isltaive stream flowing according to the rules of the game. Unlike a baseball umpire, however, the speaker may step in at any tune and takje a turn at bat. Speaker LaMar · Foster, present house mediator, hasn't done-so, but he is booked for.two appearances iri these closing days of the session.'. - - · He-plans to speak in favor pi the teachers annuity bill and legalization of the state .planning board. - THROUGH WRINGER Among the laws destined to go .hrough the wringer before the Iowa legislators go home is the unemployment compensation act. Doubts as to its constitutionality, caused by the fact that the governor filled some house and seriate vacancies by appointment in last December's special session :s the reason for its scheduled're- appearance in the legislature. One change already is said to lave the blessing of the administration. The state unemployment loard now is composed of three members, one representing labor, one industry and one the general public. . · 'Tis said the administration would have the legislature drop these designations. It is feared that a member appointed to represent industry would feel himself forced to carry the ball for industry in all discussions, rather than administer the law for the general public good. The same would be true of labor, it is thought, o » * FACULTY RAIDER Most! formidable "faculty raider" luring the professors away from the campuses of Iowa colleges is ho educational institution. It is the federal government.. Only at Iowa State college, however, did' federal offers' have a substantial effect. There 17 out of 50 professors and instructors to leave since 1933 became employes of the United States, but 14 others wanted to quit for government jobs. The latter group was talked out of it, higher salaries doing the talking. At the University of Iowa, on the other hand, only seven out of 475 departures can be laid to government competition. Des Moines Council Angered by Charge City Is;" Wide Open" DES MOINES, (/?)--Angered by charges that Des Moines is "wide open," the city council invited Rep;- C. 'G. Johnson, democrat of Buena Vista, to "put up or shut up." · ! ·..· · By a vote'of 4 to 1, the council adopted a resolution inviting Johnson to appear, before it and present specific information on allegations o f - l a x law enforcement made Tuesday by the representative on the house floor. Informed of the invitation, Johnson laughed and said: : "Next thing you know, they'll be wanting me to show them where the Des Moines river .is." "No, I won't appear before them," he declared. "I haven't time. They know what is going on without my telling them." Clarion Man Fined : $25: on Game Charges CLARION -- Del-Loux of near Clarion, who was arrested b'y Game Warden F. H. Davis, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Justice Old- :iam's. court to charges of-hunting without a license. Loux was fined $25 and costs. . Mrs..May Wilcox of Clarion, apprehended by.
