Rep. Roll in Edelen ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., JAN. 19, 1972 Page 4 Seek Decision on Viet Bonus Familiar Landmarks Governor Robert Ray welcomed we Legislators back to the second half of the 64th General Assembly with his 20 some odd proposals. He gave high priority to a bonus for Vietnam War Veterans, World Food Exposition, and funding the School Budget Review Committee. I feel quite sure we Iowans will soon be paying a mill or two additional property tax to fund a bonus to pay the Vietnam Vet- GJancing back. eran a bonus similar to the one paid to World War n and Korean War Veterans. If the bonus is paid from the State bonding itself, this would call for a State referendum. I'll always remember the boost that the World War II bonus gave the veteran. Committee meetings have consumed most of my time this past week. Am serving on the following standing committees; Transportation, Law Enforcement, and Agriculture. As it stands now several major pieces of legislation will be coming out of the Transportation Committee, such as the "Junk Yard" — Billboard problem, studded snow tire law, and creating a Department of Transportation. There is no longer any doubt but that Iowa will have to pass legislation to comply with the Federal Government regula- Graaf to Build New Store (From the Estherville Democrat, Jan. 20, 1904) Hermann G. Graaf, of the Eagle Clothing Store, has advertised his old store buildings on Sixth Street for sale and early in the spring will commence the erection of a two-story brick in their stead.' The new block will be 44x114 feet and he expects it will cost in the neighborhood of $15,080. The building will be heated by hot water and lighted by both electricity and gas. It will be an ornament to the city. D. Matt has disposed of his West Side Lumber Yard to H. L. Jenkins & Co. of Minneapolis, who have already taken possession. The new firm has a line of lumber yards along the M&St. L. and this will be another yard added to their list. Mr. Mott will remain in Estherville and continue to build houses for sale on the installment plan. An exchange says that every paper in the state should publish the fact that burnt cork is a sure cure for hog cholera and adds: It was first discovered by Opmm AIlYTsTiWS distillery in Peoria, III. It was thrown to the hogs and eaten by them. Before that time a number had been dying each day with cholera but the disease immediately disappeared. It is so simple a remedy that it can be easily tried. W. Wait, of the Dolliver Herald was an Estherville business visitor yesterday. John Maas, who lives two miles east of town, had a runaway last Friday and was extremely fortunate in escaping with his life. He had started from town for home, accompanied by his son and sister-in-law, Miss Tracy Naeve. When half a mile from town the horses became frightened and it looked as if there would be something doing, so Miss Naeve and the little boy jumped out.

When the excitement had subsided, Mr. Maas noticed considerable blood on his clothing and investigation of the cause revealed the fact that he had about 40 rods of barb wire wrapped around his neck. His neck and face were quite badly scratched but not seriously cut. The horses were not damaged at all. It is thought that Mr. Maas' escape from probable death was due to wearing a fur coat, otherwise the barb wire would undoubtedly have cut his throat— From the Terril Tribune. BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Wednesday, Jan. 19, the 19th day of 1972. There are 347 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1942, Japan invadedBur- ma during World War n. On this date: In 1736, the inventor of the steam engine, James Watt, was born in Breenock, Scotland. In 1807, the Confederate general Robert Er Ljs£ was born in Stratford, Va.

Francisco Franco's nationalist air force bombed the Spanish cities of Barcelona and Valencia, killing 700 persons. In 1965, a cheating scandal came to light at the U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colo. Ten years ago: Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara said the United States was resolved to oppose Communist aggression in all its forms. Five years ago: The U. S.

I would feel remiss of my duties if I failed to advise you that House File 233, the Act to prohibit the use of tire studs except on emergency vehicles, has not been assigned to a sub-committee for their study. Your letters for or against this legislation should be addressed tome at the State Capitol Building, Des Moines, Iowa. Please remember your comments and suggestions are always welcome and helpful to me. Little, is left to be said regarding the State Supreme Court's ruling on the Legislative Districting of the General Assembly. Now that the Court has taken the responsibility of reapportioning the State, I question if they will come any closer to the "one man-one vote" concept than we Legislators, unless of course they draw lines that would not only split townships but dormitories on college campuses. To me the Court's ruling means that we Legislators should no longer attempt to reapportion the state. Should the Court follow the League of Women Voters redisricting plan Emmet County and 13V2 Townships including Algona of Kossuth County would make up the 3rd Representative District. Your Representative has been named Chairman of a committee to study an Act to establish a County Law Enforcement Unit, and to transfer the duties of the Constables, Marshals, City Policemen and Sheriff's Deputies to the County Law Enforcement Unit. This would be permissive legislation and not mandatory should this become law. Should you have an occasion to reach me in the evenings my phone number is 515-225-2407. Rollin C.

Countryside Some Post-Christmas BY SUSAN EBELE The world comes into my windows with diamond-crusted robes, millions of diamonds everywhere, as temperatures drop. The sun shines like white fire, and a stillness prevails. But so far we have been .spared the scouragc at heavy snow and drifted roads. Last week began what might be called the January thaw. Eaves dripped, water ran down the curbs, and melted snow and ice revealed green grass underneath. This to me is always a kind of miracle: green grass showing, a promise of resurrection by nature. Now is when a person goes through Christmas mail leisurely and with a sense of appreciation for these messages from loved ones and old friends as well as new. I didn't get as many cards as usual, and as usual, I didn't send many. Always I say I'll do better next year but I don't. So much mail has to be answeredwhenyou are a columnist and trying to work with a mission center at the same time, that extra writing at Christmas time is something you want to do but don't. FOR THOSE WHO UNDERSTAND this I and" write anyway, I say God bless you. Christmas cards this year were reverent and I didn't get any funny ones. Most of them wished for peace for mankind. It made,the season especially meariing- fuL 1 thought, in this time of suffering and dissent. However, I did get'an elaborately decorated Christmas card from a group of hippies in Philadelphia. They just signed their first names, and I didn't recognize any of them. The message said that they read the column. The card showed a young man lying under a tree and playing a guitar. Here is what the card said: "We are the music makers. We are the dreamers of dreams wandering by lone sea - brakers. And sitting by desolate streams. World lovers and world fore- sakers on whom the pale moon gleams. Yet we are the movers and shakers of the world. Forever it seems." I'm going to put the card up over my desk. I don't want to be critical, but since my life work revolves around the use of words, and I make so many mistakes Thoughts with them myself, I think my hippie friends spelled the word "brakers" incorrectly. Maybe I'm wrong. THEY HAD TO COVER their tomato plants in Florida because of the threatened freeze, I hear, and that's something we didn't have to do here in the mid­ west. Of late there have been dead birds in the yard. I wonder what is happening. They are sparrow-type and look like young ones. I find them near the feeder. They haven't been shot and they are not mutilated, so maybe they just freeze to death. It seems so sad. Friends from out of the state stopped by this morning. They had been visitingtheir 95-year-old father who lives alone. He does all his own work and chased them out of the kitchen when they offered to cook a meal for him. He said he didn't want any women messing up his kitchen. "All you women do is putter around and make trouble," he grumbled. Someone should write a feature story about that man.
