For example, he said workmen removing old carpet .from the ieutenant governor's office ound that moisture caused the floor to decay.

Also awarded, without bids, was a contract for draperies costing $1,061 for the office of the House Speaker. ; They indicate the action was taken after a telephone poll of five other committee members —Sens: Verne Kyle, R-Parkersburg; Robert Burrows, R-Belle Plaine, and Walker, and Reps. Maurice Barringer, R-Oelwein, Lenabelle Bock, R-Garner. The minutes show that all but Burrows voted by telephone in favor of awarding the contract to Storey 'Kenworthy.
